Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Nancy Pelosi, Katie Hill, Anthony Fauci, and more.

Insight: “As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost and science can never regress.” —J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967)

“Incredible how fast the whole ‘men can get pregnant too’ talking point gets thrown out of the window by liberals when they’re talking about abortion. Suddenly, any man engaging in conversation on the topic is ‘mansplaining.’” —Caleb Hull

Non sequitur: “It’s really scary and I say that as a practicing Catholic. [Abortion] shouldn’t even be a political issue. Look at Ireland. They’re a more Catholic country. Look at Ireland and how they passed legislation respecting women.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Non compos mentis: “I didn’t think it was possible to become more pro-choice than I already was, but after 7 months of pregnancy all I can think about is how wrong it would be to make someone do this who doesn’t want to.” —disgraced former Congresswoman Katie Hill ( “I’ve been pregnant for 8 months, I’ve seen my child move around in ultrasounds, and all I can think about is how anybody could possibly see killing an unborn baby as anything other than evil.” —Jordan Chamberlain)

Nope: “To me the crucial question is when does a living organism become a human soul. My intuition is that it’s not a moment, but a process — a process shrouded in divine mystery.” —New York Times’s David Brooks

Village idiot: “We don’t live in a democracy. Five of the nine justices were appointed by presidents who lost the popular vote; the last three confirmed by a Republican Senate who now represent 41 million fewer Americans than the Democrats. In fact, Republican senators haven’t represented a majority of the U.S. population since 1996.” —Stephen Colbert (“The court will destroy democracy by giving an issue that isn’t covered in the constitution back to the voters. Genius take.” —David Harsanyi)

Wait — isn’t that racist? “We were vaccinated against the original … Wuhan strain.” —Dr. Anthony Fauci

Swamp Doctor: “All I’m doing is talking science. So when you’re coming at me with bullets and slings, I mean, what is it that you’re criticizing? … You have to come to the conclusion that they’re criticizing the scientific principles.” —Anthony Fauci

The BIG Lie: “I’ve used every tool available to address price increases and it’s beginning to work. Take gasoline and gas prices. … Over the last month … we’ve seen oil and gas prices … come down significantly.” —Joe Biden

Demagogue: “Many of my [Republican] colleagues here care more about the health of the gun industry and their profits than they do about the health of our kids.” —Senator Chris Murphy

And last… “Big Tech has become the censorship arm of the Democratic Party and political left, silencing and de-platforming anyone who rejects the chosen left-wing narrative. Silicon Valley oligarchs shouldn’t be the arbiters of free speech in our country. We must fight back!” —Florida Governor Ron DeSantis
