Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Frank J. Fleming, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi, and more.

Insight: “With all the creative energy at our command, let us begin an era of national renewal. Let us renew our determination, our courage, and our strength. And let us renew our faith and our hope. We have every right to dream heroic dreams.” —Ronald Reagan

Good question: “If the Dems actually think the world is going to end, shouldn’t they be making big compromises with with Republicans to stop that? ‘We’ll give you all free AR-15s in exchange for a carbon tax!’” —Frank J. Fleming

Friendly fire: “We need to start holding you Democrats accountable, because they’ve been taking black people’s votes and they only talk to black people every four years. All of these politicians only talk to black people every four years because they want their vote.” —Charles Barkley

Friendly fire II: “At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior — it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Hypocrite-in-chief: “The president asked a foreign power to help him win an election. Again.” —Hillary Clinton, who hired a foreign entity in an attempt to win the 2016 election

Braying jenny I: “I do think that we will have to pass some laws that will have clarity for future presidents. [A] president should be indicted if he’s committed a wrongdoing — any president. There is nothing anyplace that says the president should not be indicted. That’s something cooked up by the president’s lawyers.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Braying jenny II: “The Founders could never suspect that a president would be so abusive of the Constitution of the United States, that the separation of powers would be irrelevant to him and that he would continue, any president would continue, to withhold facts from the Congress, which are part of the constitutional right of inquiry.” —Nancy Pelosi

Braying jenny III: “If the administration persists in blocking this whistleblower from disclosing to Congress a serious possible breach of constitutional duties by the president, they will be entering a grave new chapter of lawlessness which will take us into a whole new stage of investigation.” —Nancy Pelosi

And last… “Environmentalism really has become a full blown religion. It has its core beliefs, its apocalyptic vision, its call to repentance, its rules and moral codes, its priests and priestesses (@AOC, etc), its prophets (Gore, etc), its child saviors (Thunberg).” —Matt Walsh
