Monday Short Cuts

Meanwhile, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats warns: “If you improperly disclose classified information, we will find you.”

The Gipper: “I urge you to beware the temptation … to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of any evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong, good and evil.”

For the record: “[Unlicensed] disclosures have been disseminated to both the media and to our foreign adversaries. These disclosures have resulted in a major threat to our national security. … If you improperly disclose classified information, we will find you, we will investigate you, we will prosecute you to the fullest extent to the law, and you will not be happy with the result.” —Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats

Enabling lawlessness: “No, not at all. I am so glad they’re telling us what’s going on.” —Maxine Waters when asked if she’s worried about leaks

Braying Jenny: “I am not running for anything except the impeachment of Trump.” —Maxine Waters

The BIG Lie: “When the sea levels rise, obviously we could lose, like, Venice. We could lose Florida. And who would know better about losing Florida? Actually, I think I carried Florida. But that’s another — we won’t go there.” —Al Gore

Litmus test: “Progressives share our party with people who personally don’t believe that abortion is an option for them. This includes self-identified ‘pro-life’ legislators up until the moment they seek to impose those personal views on their constituents and the country. If they vote to restrict abortion access or contraception access, they then undercut the party platform and they undercut the welfare of women.” —National Abortion Rights Action League

Friendly fire: “Look, even on the abortion issue, it wasn’t very long ago that a number of Catholic Democrats were opposed to abortion. So the fact that somebody believes today what most people believed 50 years ago should not be the basis for their exclusion.” —California Gov. Jerry Brown

And last… “Difference between Nazi and Communist is when you say how horrible Nazis have been, they don’t say, ‘Well, real Nazism has never been tried.’” —Frank Fleming
