Friday Short Cuts

“Freedom of thought is the only guarantee against an infection of people by mass myths,” Andrei Sakharov observed.

Insight: “Freedom of thought is the only guarantee against an infection of people by mass myths, which, in the hands of treacherous hypocrites and demagogues, can be transformed into bloody dictatorships.” —Andrei Sakharov (1921-1989)

Upright: “Mrs. Clinton has a new book coming out called ‘What Happened.’ All the reports indicate that she is doubling down on the idea that Russia and James Comey cost her the election. So I guess that means James Comey and Vladimir Putin convinced her to ignore blue collar states like Wisconsin. I guess they convinced Hillary to put our national security secrets on unsecured servers. And I suppose they convinced her to adopt radical policy positions that made her one of the most unpopular political figures in modern American history.” —Gary Bauer

For the record: “For Trump, loyalty is unilateral, not reciprocal, and it has a very particular content. It’s not loyalty to the agenda or to the party, but to Trump, specifically his personal interests and honor.” —Rich Lowry

Braying Jenny: “The head of a violent gang is taking the podium at the White House. The head of ICE. Ask good questions please.” —MSNBC’s Joan Walsh

Non Compos Mentis: “You want to talk politics? Right here under the dome of the Capitol of the United States, you want to talk politics?” —Nancy Pelosi

The BIG Lie: “The president, without apparent consultation with the joint chiefs or the Pentagon … comes out and tweets that … 14,000 to 15,000 patriotic Americans who want to serve our country are fired. It’s appalling. It’s appalling.” —Nancy Pelosi, who grossly exaggerates the number of transgenders in the military

And last… “Our military was forged to be the world’s strongest fighting force, not a government-funded, politically correct, medical sex change clinic for people with gender dysphoria.” —Walt Heyer, a former trans-female
