For the record: “For the first time in quite a few years, the U.S. government is standing up to China’s authoritarian regime. China has been a bad actor for a long time — stealing intellectual property, engaging in unfair trade practices, bullying its East Asian neighbors. The markets are skittish about the current trade impasse, but I think most Americans understand that trade is the lever we can use to deter Chinese misdeeds.” —John Hinderaker

Good question: “In 2013 then-Vice President Joe Biden went to China. His son, Hunter, went with him and returned home with a billion dollar business deal. Now Joe Biden has gone soft on China while claiming to speak for working class Americans. Is China now stalling in the trade talks in the hope that they will be negotiating with ‘Uncle Joe’ in 2021?” —Gary Bauer

Food for thought: “It’s always amusing to get a lecture about the interests of women from representatives of an industry that produced and shielded so many predatory creeps for so long, but Hollywood hasn’t let its own sins stop its nonstop hectoring of everyone else.” —Rich Lowry

May it be so: “The tide is turning. People are finally waking up to the horrors of abortion. They are finally seeing that the pro-abortion side has no arguments, no case. I think we are on the verge of something. The pro-death minions are afraid. They should be.” —Matt Walsh

The BIG Lie: “Nowadays, there is more regulation over toy guns than real ones.” —Cory Booker (“[The gun] industry is the most heavily regulated industry in the country. No other industry is regulated at the federal, state, and local level to the extent our industry is regulated, which include design and performance standards.” —National Shooting Sports Foundation spokesman Mark Oliva)

Braying Jenny: “Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down. … Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists. … It’s all about dragging in ad money — big ad money.” —Elizabeth Warren, who immediately fundraised off of her snide remarks

And last… “Feminists: take what you’re feeling about GA’s & AL’s abortion laws, multiply it by a million, and then you’ll understand a fragment of what pro-lifers felt when we watched New York celebrate legalizing abortion through 9 months.” —Allie Beth Stuckey
