Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Mike Pompeo, Matt Walsh, Jen Psaki, and more.

Insight: “Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: ‘We the people.’ … Almost all the world’s constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which ‘We the people’ tell the government what it is allowed to do.” —Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)

Observations: “‘We are in the middle of a pandemic!’ is the universal tell of a politician who’s been caught out and doesn’t like the question.” —James Morrow

For the record: “One hundred years of the [Chinese Communist Party] is a century of killing fields and genocide. No political party has killed more people than the CCP.” —Mike Pompeo

Political futures: “There will never be unity. One side of the divide thinks that children should go to drag shows, women have penises, infanticide is good, and all white people are racist. There’s no common ground between us. I despise their worldview and have no respect for those who ascribe to it.” —Matt Walsh

Upright: “The Republican Party is the party of law and order, defending the police, and we will always proudly stand with our men and women in blue. The American people know very clearly that the Democrats have led the dangerous and destructive agenda to defund the police causing today’s crime crisis in America.” —Congresswoman Elise Stefanik

Projection, part I: “The president ran and won the most votes of any candidate in history on a platform of boosting funding for law enforcement after Republicans spent decades trying to cut the COPS program.” —White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki

Projection, part II: “If you oppose funding for the COPS program — something that was dramatically cut by the prior administration and many Republicans supported — and then you vote against a bill that has funding for the COPS program, we can let other people evaluate what that means.” —Jen Psaki

The BIG Lie: “Where it really counts, all four members of the Squad are more pro-police than their Republican critics.” —Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank

She doth protest too much: “It’s [right-wingers] mission to turn and twist everything I say until I am completely silenced.” —Congresswoman Ilhan Omar

Non compos mentis: “We’re going to start a new family tradition in my family. On the Fourth of July and every Fourth of July going forward, we’re going to watch that video that The New York Times put together of January 6.” —former Senator Claire McCaskill

Village idiot: “I don’t know about you but if the flag and star spangled banner comes around me I kneel in solidarity and will for the rest of my life.” —actress Rosanna Arquette

And last… “If you’re on the side that’s trying to disarm and silence everyone, you’re not part of the resistance, you’re aiding fascism and tyranny."—Kevin Sorbo
