Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Steve Cohen, Derrick Johnson, Mark Alexander, and more.


“It’s going to be difficult for President Biden to negotiate with somebody who has those type of legislative terrorists on their team, and the 14th Amendment is an ace in the hole.” —Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) regarding the debt ceiling

“We take pride in the credibility of the forecasts that we make.” —Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen

Dumb & Dumber

“We are advising African-Americans and others that if you travel to Florida, beware that your life is not valued, that we have a political landscape that could cause harm.” —NAACP President Derrick Johnson

“We have to prepare for the next election, so we can get rid of [Ron DeSantis] once and for all.” —Derrick Johnson

For the Record I

“The NAACP has morphed from a once-legitimate and purposeful organization into one whose mission now is centered on demanding black privilege. It is ironic that for generations now, it has hitched its wagon to the socialist Democrat Party — the architect of ‘white supremacy’ — which continues to keep millions of black and brown Americans enslaved by its poverty politics.” —Mark Alexander

For the Record II

“Perhaps more ominous than media bias … is that [John] Durham’s years-long investigation failed to secure any criminal convictions other than a wrist-slap against a low-level FBI cutout, Kevin Clinesmith, for altering evidence in order to secure a FISA warrant that was then used by the bureau to spy on Donald Trump. Are we to believe that Clinesmith did this entirely on his own initiative? Such a suggestion is laughable. But such is the nature of political trials in Washington, DC, a rigged town that votes nine-to-one for Democrats. This gross imbalance poisons the fairness and impartiality of a prospective jury pool, reduces the likelihood that the Left will be held to account for its crimes against the Right, and thereby all but guarantees the recurrence of such criminality.” —Douglas Andrews

“The Durham Report is four years too late to do the country any good. You can bet no one will be held accountable and the major media have already moved on to other more important topics like pronoun abuse and transgenderism.” —Michael Reagan

“Democrats spent the entire four years of the Trump presidency worshiping whistleblowers! Now, it seems they are ready to crucify them.” —Gary Bauer


“The Bill of Rights is a born rebel. It reeks with sedition. In every clause it shakes its fist in the face of constituted authority… It is the one guarantee of human freedom to the American people.” —journalist Frank I. Cobb (1869-1923)
