Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from John Kerry, Karine Jean-Pierre, AOC, and more.

The BIG Lie

“MAGA House Republican proposals would slash funding for border security — a move that could allow nearly 900 pounds of fentanyl into our country. We need more resources to secure the border. Not less.” —Joe Biden (“LOL. Democrats have spent a decade accusing conservatives and anyone else who wants greater immigration enforcement of being monstrous racists. … Now Biden is campaigning on the ground he is the defender of greater funds for border enforcement.” —Glenn Greenwald)


“How many more children have to be murdered before Republicans in Congress will step up and act to pass the assault weapons ban?” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

Letting the Cat Out of the Bag

“If the Democratic Party is a part of shutting down a platform [TikTok] that they have used to build community and to be in a space where they are often accepted and connected with others … it can harm us politically in 2024.” —Congressman Jamaal Bowman (D-NY)

Hot Air

“Our president has tried hard to separate climate from the other issues that are real that we obviously have with China, but we can’t get bogged down by that because this is a universally felt existential challenge to the planet.” —climate czar John Kerry

Non Compos Mentis

“Many of these disgusting and insinuating attacks on trans and LGBT people are actually projections of what predatory cisgender and often straight men do when left alone in the presence of women or sometimes horribly children. So instead of getting you to challenge the patriarchy, they’re trying to get you to challenge the very gender expressiveness that challenges patriarchy. Don’t get it twisted because a lot of people attacking drag are projecting.” —Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)

Village Academies

“Parents do not have a fundamental right to tell you how public school teaches their child. Parental rights end when you decide to send your kids to public school.” —New Mexico School Boards Association Trainer Andrew Sanchez


“It isn’t that the climate isn’t changing; it is changing, just as it’s done for all of earth’s history. It’s that slight changes in average global temperature or various shifts in weather patterns don’t mean we need to turn over most economic decisions to our government or world elites shamelessly flying around in private jets.” —Nate Jackson

“There was a time when voters were very concerned with the character and integrity of those we placed in authority over us. While politicians are supposed to represent the people who elected them, they now see voters as their servants. We’re supposed to just suck it up and gratefully accept the ‘crumbs’ of services government allows us to have.” —Roger Helle


“Ultimately, it is the responsibility of individuals to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, make responsible financial decisions, pursue education … and fight to break the cycle of poverty. Many poor remain poor because they do not know how to break the cycle of poverty. You don’t know what you don’t know. However, those who are determined to get out realize that it’s going to take hard work, perseverance, responsibility, and being savvy with the money they do have. They may only barely make it above the poverty line, but the example they set for their children — pushing them toward a better life and better opportunities — is breaking the cycle. This is the tenor of every successful immigrant story. It is as American as apple pie.” —Emmy Griffin

And Last…

“The reason why these race swaps [in Disney movie remakes] evoke strong negative reactions is that these remakes, which are supposed to capitalize on our nostalgia, are instead being changed to kowtow [to] today’s woke audiences and being used as a platform to lecture us about race.” —Matt Margolis

“We will never be diverse enough, inclusive enough, or equitable enough because if we were, all the DEI employees would lose their jobs. They will always find new grievance to keep their employment.” —Erick Erickson
