“Earlier this year, Education Minister David Eggen asked all Alberta school boards to provide wide-ranging support to students with diverse sexual orientations beyond supporting them in student-led clubs like gay-straight alliances… The new policies would have to ensure students with diverse sexual orientations or questioning their gender would be allowed to use washrooms of their choosing, try out for all sports teams, or be addressed as ‘ze’ instead of ‘he’ or ‘she’.” – Toronto Sun, “CBE gives first reading to gender policy” March 15th, 2016.

“These people (promoters of Mainland China such as Jia Wang, Deputy Director of the China Institute at the University of Alberta) are here to defend Mainland China and to portray Mainland China as a benevolent actor in the world’s affairs. She and others know that, with the collusion of business interests in the West, Mainland China has largely de-industrialized the West and has become a colonial power. She and others will do all they can to hide the truth and distort reality in order to further China’s interests.” (Emphasis added) – Immigration Watch Canada, “Suppressing House Price Truth = Cheering Destruction” – March 17th, 2016.

“Specifically, the Federal Bureau of Investigation examination of EmailGate, pursuant to provisions of the Espionage Act, poses a major threat to Ms. Clinton’s presidential aspirations. However, even if the FBI recommends prosecution of her or members of her inner circle for mishandling of classified information—which is something the politically unconnected routinely do face prosecution for – it’s by no means certain that the Department of Justice will follow the FBI’s lead… What DoJ decides to do with EmailGate is ultimately a question of politics as much as justice. Ms. Clinton’s recent statement on her potential prosecution, ‘it’s not going to happen,’ then refusing to address the question at all in a recent debate, led to speculation about a backroom deal with the White House to shield Hillary from prosecution as long as Mr. Obama is in the Oval Office. After mid-January, however, all bets would be off. In that case, winning the White House herself could be an urgent matter of avoiding prosecution for Ms. Clinton.”  (Emphasis added) – observer.com – “Hillary Has an NSA Problem” by John R. Schindler, March 18th, 2016.

“As I mentioned, the U.S. now better resembles an oligarchy than a democracy. In fact, a recent paper by two Princeton political scientists shows that an oligarchic model fits U.S. politics better than a democratic one, as demonstrated by policy issues, where elites in business, politics, the media, and academia hold starkly different attitudes than the majority of Americans on issues like immigration… the attitudes of the Chamber of Commerce, the neocon establishment, and the Republican Jewish Coalition on immigration are not even remotely connected to the attitudes of the GOP base… more than 90 percent of GOP voters oppose an increase in immigration – (yet) – elites favor something like Marco Rubio’s Gang of Eight bill, which would have doubled legal immigration and given amnesty to untold millions.” – Dr. Kevin MacDonald, “Could it happen here?” radixjournal.com, March 18th, 2016.

“I am a modern day Robin Hood; I am not stealing… I am serving the ones in need. I take from the rich and give to the poor… What’s the big deal? I’ve been doing this since I started here… It was me looking out for the community…” – IHOP “modern day Robin Hood” waiter William Powell, quoted in the Toronto Star story “I take from the rich and give to the poor, IHOP waiter says” on March 16th, 2016.
