Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from George Orwell, William Barr, Nancy Pelosi, and more.

Insight: “The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labor.” —George Orwell (1903-1950)

The bottom line: “The lockdown is ending because the American people say it’s ending. No further explanation from government is necessary.” —Dan Bongino

For the record, Part I: “The law enforcement and intelligence apparatus of this country were involved in advancing a false and utterly baseless Russian-collusion narrative against the president.” —Attorney General William Barr

For the record, Part II: “What happened to the president in the 2016 election … was abhorrent, it was a grave injustice, and it was unprecedented in American history.” —William Barr

Observations: “Here’s something to ponder: The same progressives who were telling President Trump that he can’t detain illegal immigrants are now telling American citizens they must be locked up in their homes and their businesses must be shut down.” —Gary Bauer

Upright: “When a disc jockey or a talk show host or a journalist who is being paid to work from his or her home tells people who can’t work, pay bills or pay their rent or mortgage to ‘Stay home and be careful because we’re all in this together,’ it’s okay to question the premise.” —Pat Sajak

Friendly fire: “The politicians & unelected bureaucrats who stole our liberty should be tarred, feathered & thrown out of town!” —Elon Musk

Braying jackass: “As far as the president is concerned, he’s our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group — morbidly obese, they say. So I think it’s not a good idea.” —Nancy Pelosi on Trump’s taking hydroxychloroquine as prescribed by his doctor

And last… “It is easy to ‘prioritize public health’ when you work comfortably from home.” —Rep. Dan Crenshaw
