Friday Short Cuts

Erick Erickson observes, “The Russians could have been masterfully playing both sides so that whoever won, Russia came out on top.”

Insight: “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they have resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress.” —Frederick Douglass (1818-1895)

The BIG Lie: “The climate movement, not least in cities, is right now in the tradition of all the great moral causes that have improved the circumstances of humanity throughout our history. The abolition of slavery. Women’s suffrage and women’s rights. The civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. … All of these movements have one thing in common. They all have met with ferocious resistance and have generated occasional feelings of despair from those who knew the right direction and wondered whether we could ever get there.” —Al Gore

Braying Jenny: “Republicans should be ashamed. Instead of protecting the men and women who risk their lives to defend our freedoms, they are fighting to rip away the health care of thousands of brave service members. This cowardly Republican amendment targeting transgender men and women in uniform effectively bans these patriotic Americans from serving their country.” —Nancy Pelosi on Republican opposition to taxpayer funded for sex change operations for soldiers

Has Hillary filed for divorce yet? “Yeah, you have to win the election, but why in the heck are you running? … If you want to be president, realize it is about the people, not about you.” —Bill Clinton

And last… “It could just be a coincidence that the Obama administration let Natalia Veselnitskaya enter the United States to meet with Donald Trump, Jr. It could also be a coincidence that her client, Prevezon, hired Fusion GPS to help Russia at the same time Fusion GPS was compiling a dossier on Donald Trump claiming Trump was working with the Russians. And it could be a coincidence that the FBI considered hiring the man who helped Fusion GPS compile that dossier. It could all be a coincidence, or it could start to paint a new picture. The Russians could have been masterfully playing both sides so that whoever won, Russia came out on top. Mrs. Clinton, after all, claims she reset the relationship with Russia.” —Erick Erickson
