Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from WSJ, William Barr, Hillary Clinton, AOC, and more.

Food for thought: “More than a few Americans may also notice the contradiction that Disney is more worried about filming in a U.S. state that has passed a law democratically than it is operating its theme park and hawking its films in China, which uses facial-recognition software to monitor its population and has a million Uighurs in re-education camps. Georgians have a right to self government, and like other Americans they aren’t fond of receiving ultimatums from elites on the coasts.” —The Wall Street Journal

For the record: “I personally felt [Robert Mueller] could’ve reached a decision. He could’ve reached a conclusion [on obstruction of justice]. … The [Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel] opinion says you cannot indict a president while he is in office, but he could have reached a decision as to whether it was criminal activity.” —Attorney General William Barr

Grand delusions: “There may not be tanks in our streets but make no mistake we are witnessing an assault on the rule of law and the foundations of our democracy.” —Hillary Clinton

Boohoo: “I could win a Nobel Prize in Physics & they’d still call me dumb. That’s why I don’t give a damn about misogynist takes on my intelligence.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Covering all the bases: “Well, a white guy who doesn’t see other identities or understand other experiences should not be president. I do. And where there would be gaps in my knowledge or my experience, I will pass the mic to people who do have that experience. I’ve also pledged that I would ask a woman to serve as vice president.” —Rep. Eric Swalwell

The BIG Lie: “Before Roe v. Wade, thousands of women died every year — and because of extreme attacks on safe, legal abortion care, this could happen again right here in America.” —Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen

Horrifying idea: “States have mandated that women submit to invasive ultrasounds, passed laws requiring survivors of sexual assault to carry their rapist’s child to term, and placed onerous and medically unnecessary restrictions on health clinics. … Kamala Harris believes we need to fight back and block these dangerous and deadly laws before they take effect. That’s exactly what she intends to do as president. Similar to the preclearance requirement of the Voting Rights Act, Harris will require, for the first time, that states and localities with a history of violating Roe v. Wade obtain approval from her Department of Justice before any abortion law or practice can take effect.” —Kamala Harris presidential campaign

And last… “I think Hillary Clinton had more to do with getting Donald Trump elected than the Russians.” —Erick Erickson
