“A trial for a woman charged with giving water to a pig on its way to slaughter took on grand proportions Thursday with the treatment of pigs equated to the extermination of Jews in Nazi Germany and the accused being compared to some of history’s greatest human rights champions… In making closing submissions… her lawyer Gary Grill evoked the Holocaust… They ‘had to witness helplessly as the Jews of that town were herded by gendarmes into cattle cars and how the gendarmes threatened and drove off local citizens, including his mother, who were trying to give them water’…” – Adrian Humphreys, “Woman who gave water to pig on way to slaughterhouse was like Gandhi, Mandela: lawyer” – National Post, March 9th, 2017.

“An army of subversives is attempting to undermine the Trump administration from within the government, and at the same time a whole host of prominent leftist leaders are fueling the flames of hate against Trump and are promoting riots, civil uprisings and in some cases even violence. And of course the mainstream media is a more than willing accomplice, because pretty much everyone that works in the mainstream media absolutely hates Donald Trump… If a “Nazi” had really become the president of the United States, what would the appropriate response be?… When the left calls Donald Trump and his supporters ‘Nazis’ and ‘racists’, they are suggesting that people should act accordingly, and that is extremely dangerous.” – Michael Snyder, “Is the left trying to start a civil war?” – End Of The American Dream, March 6th, 2017.

“A Ryerson University student who wanted to write a paper on the ‘myth’ of the male-female wage gap was told by her prof that not only was she wrong, she should only rely on feminist journals for her assignment instead of business sources which ‘blame women,’ her sister says… ‘I mean it’s easy to prove a point when you remove all other sources… If she just gives you the ones that…the professor agrees with, then that’s basically brainwashing. It’s indoctrination’.” – Antonella Artuso, “Ryerson instructor tells student to only rely on feminist journals” – Toronto Sun, March 10th, 2017.

“This year’s presidential election, the most exciting in living memory, promises an upheaval. The Socialist and Republican parties, which have held power since the founding of the Fifth Republic in 1958, could be eliminated in the first round of a presidential ballot on April 23rd. French voters may face a choice between two insurgent candidates: Marine Le Pen, the charismatic leader of the National Front, and Emmanuel Macron, the upstart leader of a liberal movement, En Marche! (On the Move!), which he founded only last year… The implications of these insurgencies are hard to exaggerate. They are the clearest example yet of a global trend: that the old divide between left and right is growing less important than a new one between open and closed. The resulting realignment will have reverberations far beyond France’s borders. It could revitalise the European Union, or wreck it.” – The Economist, “The vote that could wreck the European Union” – March 4th, 2017.

“I don’t mean to judge them at all, but this group of millennials and related groups simply have different understandings of the words loyalty, secrecy and transparency than certainly my generation did… And so we bring these folks into the agency, good Americans all, I can only assume, but again, culturally they have different instincts than the people who made the decision to hire them… We may be running into this different cultural approach that we saw with Chelsea Manning, with Edward Snowden, and now, perhaps, with a third actor” – Ex-CIA Director Michael V. Hayden, quoted by Mark Berman in “Ex-CIA director Hayden says millennials leak secrets because they are ‘culturally’ different” – Washington Post, March 10th, 2017.
