“…the country’s trucking lobby reacted with surprise to news that such a novice was operating a two-trailer vehicle – a configuration known in the industry as a B-train – on wintry Prairie roads after just a month on the job… Police said the westbound truck loaded with peat moss collided with the northbound bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos team at the intersection of Highway 35 and Highway 335 just after 5 p.m. on April 6. The bus had the right-of-way, while the truck would have had to halt at a stop sign with a flashing red light.” – Matt McClure, “Difficult to imagine: Canadian truck lobby alarmed at Humboldt crash driver’s lack of experience” – The Star Calgary, April 12th, 2018.

“I told you months ago, when you make a deal with the devil, in this case the Neoconservatives, you do so at your own peril. When Trump reversed course on Afghanistan the fix was in then. He would be allowed, like all presidents, to play around at the edges of domestic policy, but the foreign policy train will not be derailed… That’s what fuels the Empire. That’s the game. And the events of the past four days tell you what’s what.” – Thomas Luongo, “The coup is complete – Trump is done” – LewRockwell.com, April 13th, 2018.

“The ACLU is the nation’s premier defender of privacy, and we’ve long maintained that the right of every American to speak freely to his or her attorney is essential to the legal system. These rights are protected by the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments, and we are second to none in defending them – often for people with whom we fundamentally disagree.” – ACLU website, quoted by Joel B. Pollak in “ACLU celebrates raid on Trump’s lawyer: The rule of law is alive” – Breitbart, April 12th, 2018.

“Inside any one of the 3,000 containers a ship could transport into our country, is there potential for a Trojan horse operation? The answer is yes. There’s always a chance one could find four or more cruise missiles armed with biological, chemical, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), nuclear, or conventional payloads. Lopez asserts that ‘you would never know the difference between the Russian Club-K container cruise missile launch system and an ordinary standard ocean container. They look exactly alike’.” – J.M. Phelps, “Terror by shipping container” – American Thinker, April 11th, 2018.

“What is the Left now? They’re pro-censorship, they are victimhood culture, they are all about moral righteousness… I, in no way, want to be associated in what the Left has become. I’m not a leftist anymore… I do not want to have any part in this disgusting leftist culture.” – Lindsay Shepard – and – “Today’s progressivism has become a faux moral movement, hurling charges of racism, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia and a slew of other meaningless buzz words at anyone they disagree with… The battle of ideas has been replaced by a battle of feelings. And outrage has replaced honesty…. For these reasons, I can no longer call myself a progressive.” – Dave Rubin – both quoted by James Murphy in “PC culture and censorship may be causing the left to implode” – New American, April 12th 2018.
