Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Dennis Prager, and more.

Food for thought: “Chinese officials mishandled research and misrepresented and misinformed the public. But they did so under pain of punishment, even death, in a system designed to suppress that kind of information. In this country, constitutionally protected, free and independent scientists, bureaucrats, journalists and others did the same. What’s their excuse?” —Gerard Baker

Upright: “We continue to fall into the trap of viewing the joblessness epidemic in strictly financial terms, as if a job were only a means to a paycheck. A paycheck is important, but we know that work is about so much more. It’s one of the best pathways in life to achieving a sense of pride, purpose, and meaning because it connects us to something larger than ourselves.” —Randy Hicks

Kamala don’t care: “I — at some point — you know — we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole — this whole — this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border. … I mean, I don’t — I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.” —Kamala Harris when challenged to answer why she still hasn’t gone to the border

Unity™: “To transgender Americans across the country — especially the young people who are so brave — I want you to know your President has your back. During Pride Month — and all the time.” —Joe Biden

Hate America first I: “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.” —Ilhan Omar, U.S. representative

Hate America first II: “I was on Long Island this weekend and … I was really disturbed. I saw you know, dozens and dozens of pick-up trucks with expletives against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which, you know, is also just disturbing because essentially the message was clear. It was: ‘This is my country, this is not your country, I own this.’” —New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay

Circling the wagons: “New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay’s comments … have been irresponsibly taken out of context. Her argument was that Trump and many of his supporters have politicized the American flag. The attacks on her today are ill-informed and grounded in bad-faith.” —The New York Times

And last: “The single best thing Americans can do to fight the left-wing destruction of the country is to withdraw from the ‘educational’ system that is actively, deliberately miseducating them by the tens of millions.” —Dennis Prager
