Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, Gavin Newsom, and more.

Non Compos Mentis

“There are going to be a billion people in Africa very shortly. One billion.” —Joe Biden (“The population of Africa reached one billion people in 2009.” —RNC)

“It’s wrong that extreme officials are pushing hateful bills targeting transgender children. … They’re not somebody else’s kids. They’re all our kids.” —Joe Biden

“I will never apologize for standing up for LGDP — LGT — LB-chi — LGBTQ2+ kids’ rights.” —Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Dog & Pony Show

“Our ability to make a more perfect union is literally written into the Constitution. So today, I’m proposing the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution to do just that. The 28th Amendment will enshrine in the Constitution commonsense gun safety measures that Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and gun owners overwhelmingly support — while leaving the Second Amendment unchanged and respecting America’s gun-owning tradition.” —California Governor Gavin Newsom (“California is a beacon for violence because of Newsom’s embrace of policies that champion the criminal and penalize the law-abiding. That is why the majority of Americans rightfully reject his California-style gun control." —National Rifle Association)

Belly Laugh of the Week

"There is nothing to these challenges, these suggestions, that somehow [Joe Biden is] not sharp and he’s not capable.” —Senator Chris Coons (D-DE)

Hot Air

“We’re … trying to prevent [climate change] from getting worse than it has to, and that’s why we’re focused on more sustainable infrastructure for the future; it’s why we’re getting those EV chargers out there; it’s why we’re making sure there are more excellent and clean public transit options out there.” —Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg

The BIG Lies

“Extreme MAGA Republicans … wanted us to spend this week talking about kitchen appliances as part of some phony narrative that Joe Biden and Democrats want to take away gas stoves. Nothing could be further from the truth.” —House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries

“This group of Republicans is too extreme for the American people.” —Hakeem Jeffries

Who’d a Thunk It?

“Obviously we’re just in a dramatically different place with this virus … and that is largely due to the level of population immunity that we have.” —White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Ashish Jha (“Ashish Jha — who repeatedly predicted there’d likely never be herd immunity — now says the reason the U.S. is ‘in a dramatically different place with this virus…is largely due to the population immunity.’” —RNC)


“The Democrat Party once advocated a person could be enslaved, not because of the kind of person they were, but based solely on the melanin in their skin. The Democrat Party then advocated a person could be segregated, not because of the kind of person they were, but based solely on the melanin in their skin. The Democrat Party now advocates a person can be elevated or given a job, not because of the kind of person they are, but based solely on the melanin in their skin.” —Peter Heck

“The ideologues who champion Gender Marxism are picking on a target they consider easy. Both the enablers of this ideology and the gender dysphoric men cruel enough to usurp women’s spaces are masters at manipulating a woman’s compassion and empathy to get what they want. They are ultimately abusive narcissists who have succeeded in making women feel not only alone and crazy but like their perfectly legitimate concerns were wrong. That’s why they have run roughshod over women’s sports, women’s locker rooms, women’s rights, and women’s safety.” —Emmy Griffin

“Social media thought police rely on supposedly ‘objective’ sources like the AP when deciding what opinions to silence. It’s a racketeering operation. Media rating organizations hire left-wing former journalists to look at the standards and practices of Leftmedia outfits, declare them to be the gold standard, and then rate those organizations highly for having adhered to their own rules. Conservative outlets, which exist in the first place as a counter to mainstream media bias, often don’t adhere to those same standards and openly declare their bias in order to stand against the Left. So, the leftist journalists who declared themselves gatekeepers use their purported authority to give conservatives demerits for not adhering to left-wing rules.” —Nate Jackson

And Last…

“A federal indictment against a former president for crimes Hillary Clinton was given a free pass on, even though she never had declassification authority and Trump did, is real end-of-the-republic kind of stuff.” —Jeremy Boreing
