“Clearly, Hillary still sees herself as the leader of the Democratic Party. And why shouldn’t she? Democrats have been locked in an abusive relationship with the Clintons for decades, enabling, explaining, convincing themselves that next time will be different. Party faithful hew to Hillary’s excuses for losing to Donald Trump: It’s James Comey’s fault, plus the Russians, white supremacists, misogynists, the deplorables and immobilized millennials, among other things… How is it that Democrats have fealty here, let alone sympathy? How is it that Hillary routinely walks into standing ovations at Broadway theaters? Where is the realization that Hillary is to blame, or the rational rejection of a two-time loser?” – Maureen Callahan, “Why can’t the Clintons just go away?” – New York Post, April 22nd, 2017.

“If anger about political events and words of defiance to authorities are dealt with as signs of mental illness… warranting involuntary committal, then our society is in a dangerous place… The reality is that if you are involuntarily confined, you are viewed differently; you are seen as less credible. That is not how it should be but that is how it is. As well, there is the intimidation factor. If the police can take you away once and the physicians confine you, maybe they will do so again.” – The Newfoundland and Labrador Court of Appeal, quoted by Canadian Press in “Court defends political dissent after N.L. man sent to psychiatric hospital for criticizing police shooting” – National Post, April 18th, 2017.

“This is no small thing we are talking about here. We are talking about a sitting president’s administration using the terrifying powers of espionage of the United States government to conduct an intelligence operation against a political opponent before, during and after that target was elected president of the United States… This would be 10 times more serious than Watergate. We are talking a constitutional crisis the likes of which we have never seen in modern times.” – Charles Hurt, “The Nuclear Option: Obama Silent over Trump Tower Wiretaps” – Breitbart, March 31st, 2017.

“This is not an isolated incident… There are gangs of these young fellows of Muslim background who have been harassing people they identify as Christian… You don’t hear about it because no one’s reporting it.” – Sutherland Shire Council deputy mayor Reverend George Capsis, quoted by Jack Montgomery in “Australian wearing cross beaten by Muslim gang shouting f*** Jesus!” – Breitbart, April 10th, 2017.

“What happens overseas in this war, happens here in America. Muslims are surveilling Christian churches while ‘outreaching’ to the Christian community under the guise of ‘Interfaith Dialogue’. However, sharia obliges Muslims to lie to non-Muslims when the ‘goal is obligatory’. Jihad is obligatory.” – Understanding The Threat, “Muslims Target Christians & Coptic Pope on Palm Sunday” – April 9th, 2017.

“In 2016, Prime Minister David Cameron was widely criticized in the UK when he claimed that London mayor Sadiq Khan had ties to the terror group ISIS. An investigation by Disobedient Media has determined that Khan has ties not just to organizations associated with ISIS, but also groups such as Hamas, Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. During his time as mayor, London has seen an increase in terror incidents with concerning indications that terror groups wish to stage a major attack on the City of London.” – William Craddick, “London Mayor’s ties to extremism call commitment to fighting terror into question” – Disobedient Media, March 27th, 2017.

“Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce ‘detailed spreadsheets’ of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president, according to former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova… ‘The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,’ diGenova said. ‘In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls’…Critics of the atmosphere prevailing throughout the Obama administration’s last year in office point to former Obama Deputy Defense Secretary Evelyn Farkas who admitted in a March 2 television interview on MSNBC that she ‘was urging my former colleagues,’ to ‘get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration’.” – Richard Pollock, “Former US Attorney: Susan Rice ordered spy agencies to produce ‘detailed spreadsheets’ involving Trump” – Daily Caller, April 3rd, 2017.

“If Islam is peaceful and if those acting violently in its name pervert it, why has Islam experienced a 1400-year storied past of brutal violence? Should not such a history of Islam cause non-Muslims concern something inherently is wrong with the religion? Is it not logical, therefore, non-Muslims be concerned Islam has existed for a thousand plus years and continues to exist as a burning ember, igniting generations of followers into action believing they rightly and justly are doing what the Quran mandates they do – impose their religion upon all others, using force if necessary?” – Lt. Colonel James G. Zumwalt, USMC (Rtd.), “What the mice of Gough Island can teach us about Islam” – Family Security Matters, April 3rd, 2017.

“…when we speak of Islam, as opposed to Muslims, we are not speaking about a mere religious belief system. We are talking about a competing civilization – that is very much how Islam self-identifies. It has its own history, principles, values, mores, and legal system. Islam, thus understood, is not non-Western. It is anti-Western… Individual Muslims may assimilate, but Islam doesn’t do assimilation. Islam does not melt into your melting pot. Islam, as Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna proclaimed, is content with nothing less than political, cultural, and civilizational dominance.” – Andrew C. McCarthy, “Islam and the Jihad in London” – National Review, March 25th, 2017.

“So, why would a state board of education want to hire teachers too ill-educated to be a teacher? Why would a state want to put teachers in the classroom who can’t read? Simple, it’s all to satisfy the left’s fanatical, self-destructive obsession of seeing racism in every single aspect of life… Detractors of the test claim it is all about racism because fewer African American and Hispanic candidates pass the literacy tests compared to whites. According to the state, 46 percent of Hispanic candidates and only 41 percent of blacks pass the test… Their conclusion is unsurprising: the test is racist.” – Warner Todd Huston, “New York about to eliminate test meant to see if teachers can read… because raaacism!” – Constitution, March 13th, 2017.
