Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Jordan Peterson, Andrew Stiles, Matt Walsh, Barack Obama, and more.


“Private capitalism makes a steam engine; State capitalism makes pyramids.” —Frank Chodorov (1887-1966)

Biden Under the Bus

“We all know some folks in our lives, who we don’t wish them ill will. They say crazy stuff and we’re all like, ‘Well, Uncle Joe, you know what happened to him.’ They’re part of the family, but you don’t give them serious responsibilities.” —Barack Obama

Constitution Under the Bus

“So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? … A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!” —Donald Trump

Inconvenient Climate Truths

“The friend isn’t the planet; the enemy is capitalism… hence the willingness of the left to sacrifice the poor, as they are clearly doing now.” —Jordan Peterson

Blame Americans?

“It turned out the pandemic had very special impacts on the economy. Remember, everybody stopped spending on services. … They were in their homes for a year or more, they wanted to buy grills and office furniture, they were working from home, they suddenly started splurging on goods, buying technology.” —Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen blaming consumers, rather than government stimulus, for 40-year-high inflation

Hate Americans?

“We have come a long way … on so many fronts, but we are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback, and much of the progress that has been I think taken for granted by too many people is under attack. Literally under attack in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine — where rape is a tactic of war — or under attack by political and cultural forces in a country like our own when it comes to women’s healthcare and bodily autonomy.” —Hillary Clinton

Cat’s Out of the Bag

“Eventually … we’re going to be phasing out the use of oil.” —Biden energy advisor Amos Hochstein

Political Futures

“[Ron] DeSantis may or may not have what it takes to defeat Donald Trump. To win on the national stage, he will need to overcome an army of antagonists who don’t even like Trump but are professionally and emotionally invested in Trump’s success. This includes every mainstream media outlet whose ratings and profits tanked after Joe Biden was sworn in as president, as well as every Democratic politician and consultant who wants to run against Trump in 2024.” —Andrew Stiles

Food for Thought

“If I was an optimistic man I would at least hope that Kanye West’s mental breakdown and self-immolation would persuade conservatives to stop falling madly in love with every celebrity who says one thing they agree with. But I am not an optimistic man.” —Matt Walsh

More Censorship!

“As a worldwide ‘public square,’ this app should be heavily regulated for misinformation & spamming by hostile interests. If Elon can’t do that with his ‘company,’ it should be seen as a public utility under governmental supervision. This system unregulated will be more deadly.” —actor Mark Ruffalo

And Last…

“The best way to deal with (real) hate speech is to counter it with enlightened speech and stigmatize it.” —David Harsanyi
