Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Mark Alexander, Brian Mark Weber, Rachel Levine, and more.

For the Record

“I think we’re gonna see there are probably six or seven Biden family members that were involved in various business schemes around the world." —House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY)

Circling the Wagons

"There’s a fixation on the Biden family by many Republican leaders, and I think there are other issues that are more relevant and important in the lives of ordinary Americans.” —Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL)


“Democrats have repeatedly claimed that Capitol Police officers who committed suicide after the J6 protests were ‘killed by the protesters.’ Well, in addition to the rising body count of Border Patrol agents murdered by illegal immigrants, there were 17 Border Patrol officer suicides last year. Not a word from Democrats claiming they were ‘killed by illegal immigrants.’” —Mark Alexander

“China unleashed COVID on the world, killing more than a million Americans and wreaking havoc on our economy. The ChiComs are supplying the fentanyl industry that’s killing tens of thousands more Americans. They’re spying on millions of us through TikTok and balloons and stealing our intellectual property, all while triangulating with our Russian and Iranian adversaries. China represents our number one geopolitical threat. Yet the current American president has been pretty soft on China conspicuously after his family profited immensely from business dealings there. Is that really a coincidence?” —Nate Jackson

“The Washington Times reports, ‘Uninsured Chinese depositors in the failed Silicon Valley Bank likely will be made whole through the special assessment on U.S. banks that is funding the rescue crafted by the Biden administration, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told lawmakers Thursday.’ Whew. That’s a relief. We wouldn’t want our nation’s foremost geopolitical foe getting stuck instead of everyday Americans.” —Douglas Andrews


“I am afraid that the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create and destroy money. And they who control the credit of a nation direct the policy of governments, and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.” —British Secretary to the Treasury Reginald McKenna (1863-1943)

Re: The Left

“Leftism is so confusing. On the one hand, they tell us if women/girls don’t act girly enough, we must actually be men. Then when women embrace their femininity in a traditional way, they are raked over the coals for not being like men. Honestly, we can’t win. Perhaps that’s the point of this circular illogic.” —Emmy Griffin

“Biden and the Democrats have twisted the cultural narrative so much that the president recently declared that resisting the ‘transgender’ mutilation of children is ‘close to sinful.’ … In the end, a nation that considers itself both civilized and virtuous and yet won’t defend its children is neither civilized nor virtuous.” —Brian Mark Weber

Non Compos Mentis

“I think that these [gender-affirming care] attacks are ideologically and politically motivated. I think they’re being done for primarily political purposes throughout the country. … I think the next two years are going to be challenging but I am positive and optimistic and hopeful that the wheel will turn after that and that this issue won’t be politically and socially such a minefield.” —Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine


“As Christians, God is our fortress, our strong tower, and our deliverer! He delights in showing Himself strong on our behalf if we will allow Him. … God can and will do so much more for us when we refuse to take the credit.” —Ron Helle
