Tuesday Short Cuts

Trump encourages Blumenthal to “vacation in Vietnam, where he lied about his service, so he can at least say he was there.”

Insight: “Laws which prescribe what everyone must believe, and forbid men to say or write anything against this or that opinion, are often passed to gratify, or rather to appease the anger of those who cannot abide independent minds.” —Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)

Upright: “No nation can maintain its character without controlling its borders. Think of a simple analogy. If I fill a glass with water and then pour milk into the glass, the more milk I pour, the more water is displaced. That’s the United States, absent a sound and sane immigration policy.” —Cal Thomas

Braying Jenny: “I’ve said over and over again, I think [Donald Trump] is the most deplorable person I have met in my life. … I think [Robert Mueller] is going to connect the dots and I think we’re nearing a constitutional crisis” —Maxine Waters

The ends justify the means: “Of course we don’t want classified information leaked out. But I don’t think [The Resistance] would do that with a credible president.” —Maxine Waters

For the record: “Being black does not give you a license to call someone a racist just like being Jewish doesn’t give you a license to call people anti-Semites unless they actually are racists or anti-Semites.” —Alan Dershowitz to Maxine Waters, whom he says “tosses around that term so promiscuously that it dilutes the term”

The BIG Lie: “I grew up in the South when the civil rights movement was gaining momentum. Believe me, the resistance to civil rights was at least as ferocious as the resistance to the climate movement and solving the climate crisis.” —Al Gore

Shots fired! “I think Senator Blumenthal should take a nice long vacation in Vietnam, where he lied about his service, so he can at least say he was there.” —Donald Trump

And last… “It has been unnerving to read quotes from intelligence officials who claim to be astonished by North Korea’s advances. Perhaps if there were less surveillance of Trump officials and more surveillance of North Korean officials, our experts wouldn’t be so surprised.” —Gary Bauer
