Political Editors · Jul. 12, 2019

Insight: “Judicial verbicide is calculated to convert the Constitution into a worthless scrap of paper and to replace our government of laws with a judicial oligarchy.” —Sen. Sam Ervin (1896-1985)

Upright: “How is this controversial? Asking about citizenship? It’s like a question that has nothing to do with race at all. It’s about who is American and who is not. … Erasing our history, our sense of who we are, is making it easier to turn America into just kind of another member of a globalist superstate. Europeans sacrificed their identities years ago on the altar of globalism when they formed the European Union. And look at what it got them.” —Laura Ingraham

This just in: “It wasn’t originally a climate thing at all … we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, on the Green New Deal

Village Idiots: “The earth is angry. We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women. We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-[expletive] planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that. … [Millennials] don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it.” —Miley Cyrus

Marching orders: “As we go into next week, I’d like to have a level of calmness, no drama, regarding the Mueller presentation.” —Nancy Pelosi to Democrat colleagues

Braying Jenny: “I know predators and we’ve got a predator living in the White House. He has predatory instincts and he has a predatory nature.” —Sen. Kamala Harris

And last… “[Ilhan] Omar isn’t the kind of immigrant we should want. That’s not because she is Muslim or black, but because she doesn’t believe in the traditional ideas that define American life. And she shouldn’t be immune from criticism merely because of her background.” —David Harsanyi
