“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our publishing partnership with President and Mrs. Obama… With their words and their leadership, they changed the world, and every day, with the books we publish at Penguin Random House, we strive to do the same… Now, we are very much looking forward to working together with President and Mrs. Obama to make each of their books global publishing events of unprecedented scope and significance.” – Markus Dohle, chief executive of Penguin Random House, quoted by Judy McLeod in “Obama rip-off renegade leader of the revolutionary army” – Canada Free Press, March 12th, 2017.

“A few weeks after the election, I warned that Obama was planning to run the country from outside the White House. And that the ‘Obama Anonymous’ network of staffers embedded in the government was the real threat. Since then Obama’s Kalorama mansion has become a shadow White House. And the Obama Anonymous network is doing everything it can to bring down an elected government… The reason he didn’t decide to move on from D.C. is that the nation’s capital contains the infrastructure of the national government. He doesn’t just want to run the Democrats. He wants to run America.” – Daniel Greenfield, “Obama’s third term is here” – Family Security Matters, March 15th, 2017.

“A garage owner will get a chance to argue before the Supreme Court of Canada that he should not be held responsible for the terrible injuries a teen suffered when he and a friend stole a car from the lot and crashed it… the injured teen successfully sued the garage for leaving the car unlocked and its keys in the ashtray.” – Colin Perkel, “Is victim at fault for thief’s injury? Garage owner gets chance to fight liability for teen hurt in stolen car crash” – Toronto Sun, March 12th, 2017.

“It’s the same with the current conversation we’re having about Canadian values. For the most part, people from all walks of life are just reacting with concern to events like Justin Trudeau’s call to the world that Canada could be the first ever ‘post-national state’ with ‘no core identity’… If we deny that we have our own values and then get dragged into some group effort, does it mean other values we don’t necessarily share end up calling the shots for everyone else? This isn’t closed-minded populism. It’s a legitimate problem.” – Anthony Furey, “The truth about populism in Canada” – Toronto Sun, March 11th, 2017.

“Trump will call someone a name while Obama will anonymously source a smear through three levels of staffers, political allies and reporters… Trump called CNN ‘Fake News’ on camera. Obama sourced Operation Rushbo, targeting Rush Limbaugh, through a variety of White House people and left-wing allies. Trump will boot reporters he doesn’t like. Obama authorized secretly hacking the emails of a FOX News reporter. Trump had an openly hostile conversation with the Prime Minister of Australia. When Obama wanted to call Netanyahu ‘chickens–t’, he did it by having one of his people anonymously plant it with a reliable media sycophant, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, before later having a spokesman disavow it.’ – Daniel greenfield, “Trump vs Obama” – FrontPageMag, March 10th, 2017.
