“There’s a level of admiration I actually have for China… Their basic dictatorship is actually allowing them to turn their economy around on a dime.” – Justin Trudeau, quoted by Mark Bonokoski in “Trudeau in China: Like father, like son”, Toronto Sun July 9th, 2016.

“Despite a substantial Black middle class (significantly the result of affirmative action policies), the great majority of the Black population throughout the West is unable to adjust to a contemporary society demanding impulse control and cognitive competence.” – Andrew Joyce Phd., “Learn to live with it: Nice and the ever-rising cost of multiculturalism” – Occidental Observer, July 18th, 2016.

“Of course, we all know why our PM recently sent out an invitation for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, a.k.a William and Kate, to visit Canada in the lead-up to next year’s celebrations of Canada’s 150th birthday…. They’re young, and they’re hot looking, like the Trudeaus… While protocol would suggest the direct heir to the throne should have received Trudeau’s invitation, and not someone who will likely be standing second in line for years to come, the idea of photo ops with Prince Charles and Camilla likely did not turn the crank of the Trudeaus.” – Mark Bonokoski, “Canada’s non-invitation to the man who will be king, eventually” – Toronto Sun, July 16th, 2016.

“Mr Orbán, the most vociferous anti-immigrant leader among the 28 EU nations, announced the date of the referendum days after the UK Brexit vote… He said immigration had been the key issue in the vote, describing Britain as ‘taking back its island’ and praising those who voted to leave… Analysts said he had been emboldened by the Brexit vote and chose to seize the moment for his own referendum to reject the EU plan to re-settle 160,000 refugees among the existing member states… Those countries that refuse to accept the quota face heavy fines of £212,000 for each refugee turned away… With Hungary asked to accept 1,294 people, that amounts to a fine of more than £255million.” – Paul Thompson, “How DARE Brussels tell us how many migrants can live in our country?” – Daily Mail, July 11th, 2016.

“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Office of Cyber and Infrastructure Analysis (DHS/OCIA) assesses that information and communication technology (ICT) is highly likely to continue being extensively incorporated into critical infrastructure during the next decade. As a result, the variety of cyber-physical system components (operating systems, computational hardware, and firmware) in ICT is likely to make universal security across critical infrastructure sectors problematic creating immeasurable vulnerabilities and attack vectors. Critical infrastructure is likely to see an increase in cyber-related incidents during the next decade.” – DHS Critical Infrastructure 2025 Strategic Risk Assessment.
