Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from National Review, Joe Biden, CAIR, and more.

Insight: “It is not enough to do your best; you must know what to do, and THEN do your best.” —W. Edwards Deming (1900-1993)

“The case of Peng Shuai, a Chinese tennis star who went missing, should be a clarion call to the sports world to take a stand against the oppressive Chinese government. … We were pleasantly surprised by the exemplary performance of Steve Simon, the leader of the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA). Simon said he was willing to lose hundreds of millions of dollars of investments that had been made to build up tennis in China if that’s what it takes to make sure Peng was accounted for and that her allegations were properly investigated. … Were major U.S. sports leagues to pull out of China, it would make no difference to the game or the athletes. Players would still be able to compete and earn plenty of money in the U.S. and elsewhere. … There has never been any doubt what the Chinese regime is, but the Peng case brings it home in a personal and powerful way. No one should be going out of his way to give this regime propaganda victories or bending to its will.” —National Review

Race bait: “Although we respect the jury process and accept the jury’s decision, it is difficult to imagine a black or Muslim defendant in the same circumstances being found not guilty or receiving the breaks that Kyle Rittenhouse received during the trial. If our justice system is going to repeatedly give every break, benefit of the doubt, and legal protection to white defendants, people of color and other minorities must receive the same.” —CAIR National Deputy Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell

Non compos mentis: “We apologize deeply for the email that was sent [yesterday]. $14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.” —Women’s March

Non sequitur: “Nearly 2 million women in our country have been locked out of the workforce because they have to care for a child or an elderly relative at home. My Build Back Better Act will make caregiving accessible and affordable and help them get back to work.” —Joe Biden (“The reality is that too many people ‘have been locked out of’ family life because they need to labor outside of the home. We need an economy that allows more people to choose to ‘care for a child or an elderly relative at home.’ Work in the home is real work. Family life matters.” —Ryan T. Anderson | “My favorite part is when he tells moms to hand over their kids to government-paid childcare experts so they can ‘get back to work.’” —Abigail Shrier)

Lower your expectations, rubes: “It’s important to maintain perspective about where our economy stands today. The fact is, America has a lot to be proud of.” —Joe Biden

The BIG Lie: “My effort to combat climate change is not raising the price of gas… What it’s doing, it’s increasing the availability of jobs.” —Joe Biden (“Nothing Biden says can ever, or will ever, change the fact that his Administration’s war on American energy is the reason for our present energy crisis. America Last policies lead inescapably to disaster. And draining our nation’s emergency reserves only compounds that disaster.” —Stephen Miller)

And last… “After attacking U.S. energy, Joe Biden says Americans are seeing high gas prices because ‘oil producing countries … have not ramped up the supply of oil quickly enough.’ The United States is an oil producing country…” —Republican National Committee
