Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Larry Kudlow, Roy Blunt, Nikki Haley, and more.

Insight: “Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.” —Aesop (c. 550 B.C.)

Re: The Left: “Those folks on the far-left who insist that America is a bad place are trying to tear down our system. That’s why they talk about systemic racism. And they’ll do anything. Like packing the Supreme Court, intimidating juries, ending the filibuster, defunding the police, etc. etc. Because what they really want to do is transform this country from the greatest and most prosperous democracy in the history of history into some kind of socialist command and control autocratic country that would presumably support their left-wind ideological whims.” —Larry Kudlow

Food for thought: “You’ve got to think that at least part of Fauci’s authoritarian germ hysterical is a cover for something else. Could it be that Tony Fauci is trying to divert attention from himself and his own role in the COVID-19 pandemic? … At the time the outbreak began last fall, the Wuhan lab was conducting experiments on how to make bat viruses infectious to human beings. Those experiments were funded by American tax dollars, the funding for those experiments was approved and directed by Tony Fauci in Washington. … In a functional country, there would be a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country, changing it forever.” —Tucker Carlson

The blunt truth: “I have a hard time imagining that there’s some totally neutral individual who organizes providing food and water to people at the polling place without some motive of wanting to express their own view of democracy or politics or candidates.” —Senator Roy Blunt

Non compos mentis: “Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians.” —Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (“No, an act of terrorism is Hamas firing rockets into Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. If a terrorist organization was shooting rockets into DC, I doubt you would have the same response. Israel has the right to defend itself.” —Nikki Haley)

And last… “Say what you want about Trump, but the peace he brought to the middle east was highly underrated.” —Caleb Hull
