Thursday Short Cuts
Pelosi accuses Trump of being "the first president in modern time ... who has been anti-immigration." In truth, Pelosi is anti-security.
Upright: “It was recently disclosed that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security had warned the Obama administration in 2016 that antifa was a domestic terrorist organization that aimed to incite violence during street protests. That stark assessment and antifa’s subsequent violence make the recent nonchalance of local police departments with regard to antifa thuggery seem like an abject dereliction of duty.” —Victor Davis Hanson
For the record: “Another argument the Left raises appeals to our sense of fairness. ‘These kids didn’t break the law, their parents did. We don’t hold children responsible for their parents,’ progressives say. Oh, but they do. They are holding an entire generation responsible for the sins of their grandparents and great grandparents, especially if they happened to live in a southern state. Those kids are routinely told that they are benefiting from white privilege, and they must make amends for that ‘original sin.’” —Gary Bauer
Demo-gogues: “This is the first president in modern time, in the lives of these Dreamers, who has been anti-immigration, rejecting the idea that immigration is the life blood of our country.” —Nancy Pelosi
Braying Jenny: “Here at Planned Parenthood, we firmly believe that every person has the right to live, work, and raise a family freely and without the threat of deportation or separation.” —Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood (Well, not EVERYONE…)
Alpha Jackass: “Our legal system is structured to favor private property. … If I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed. And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents. That’s a world I’d love to see.” —Mayor Bill de Blasio effectively endorsing the end of private property
And last… “It is remarkable to find Obama condemning Trump for ending a program Trump has not actually ended, while simultaneously defending DACA on prosecutorial discretion principles, which Obama invoked but did not follow, and which Trump is actually following while preserving Obama’s unconstitutional program. Perfect.” —Andrew McCarthy
