Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ted Cruz, Nate Jackson, Chris Murphy, and more.

For the Record

“The Durham report is damning. It shows the FBI operating as a disinformation shop for the Clinton campaign, ignoring its own rules, and blatantly & maliciously interfering in a presidential election. The Steele dossier was fake, and FBI knew it all along.” —John Daniel Davidson

“This was an operation, not an investigation.” —former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman on the “Russia collusion” hoax

Re: The Left

“This is a full-on invasion. It is a crisis. And the Biden administration is cheering it on … they want this to happen. They want more people to come in, and they don’t care about the body bags that are piling up. They don’t care about the women being sexually assaulted. They don’t care about the children being brutalized. They don’t care about the over 100,000 drug overdoses that we had last year, two-thirds of which was from Chinese fentanyl coming across the southern border. … We’ve had over six and a half million cross under Joe Biden and 50 show up at Martha’s Vineyard and the woke lefties there declared it a full-on humanitarian crisis.” —Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)

“Biden just told [Howard University] black graduates that the moment they step foot out into the world, they’ll be victimized by whites. What kind of hopeful future is that? Sadly, the picture for black Americans is indeed presently fairly bleak, but it’s not Biden’s political opponents who are responsible for that. … Our great nation would benefit tremendously if more Americans of every color could see through the racial lies and demagoguery of the Left. After all, the message of Liberty is colorblind.” —Nate Jackson

“New York City does not have a justice system. It has a political system masquerading as a justice system. It is run by one party, the Democratic Party, which is the tool of progressives who see prosecutorial power as a weapon for achieving their race-obsessed vision of social justice.” —Andrew McCarthy

Non Compos Mentis

“If the Supreme Court eventually says that states or the Congress can’t pass universal background checks or can’t take these assault weapons off the streets, I think there’s going to be a popular revolt over that policy. A Court that’s already pretty illegitimate is going to be in full crisis mode.” —Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT)
