Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer, and more.

Other than that… “H.R. 1 (or S.R. 1 in the Senate), which is known as a voting bill but wanders helter-skelter into all sorts of other areas, is objectively terrible legislation. It is unfocused, extremely high-handed in its impositions on the states, careless of the speech rights of groups and individuals, and constitutionally dubious. … H.R. 1 is a non-solution to a non-crisis.” —Rich Lowry

Inquiring minds want to know: “Why does the NCAA think it is fair to have girls compete against biological males?” —Ted Cruz

Income redistribution: “Millions of Americans are being crushed by student debt. And this is a burden that falls especially hard on people of color. President Biden with the flick of a pen can cancel student debt.” —Chuck Schumer

Sums it up: “The utter folly of ‘energy disarmament:’ America’s retreat on fossil-fuel production won’t affect the climate, and China, Russia and Iran will exploit it for their own economic and strategic gain.” —Brit Hume

Everyone keep panicking: “The clock is ticking. Every day that we delay bold action on climate change is one day closer for more droughts and forest fires, more heat waves, more flooding, more sea rising, more extreme weather. For the sake of future generations we must act NOW.” —Bernie Sanders

National insecurity: “This is not a joke. You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest threat facing America was? Global warming.” —Joe Biden (“I’m looking at it from a strictly military standpoint, and from a strictly military standpoint, I’m putting China, Russia up there.” —General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff)

Consequences of weakness: “Vladimir Putin says he looks forward to extracting as many concessions from Joe Biden as possible, admits China has set a high bar.” —Ben Domenech’s headline prediction ahead of the Biden/Putin confab

And last… “How pumped is China that America has a President dumb enough to think climate change is our biggest threat? It’s pretty clear why they wanted the ‘Big Guy’ to win…” —Lisa Boothe
