“While the focus on illegal migration remains, the original goal of stopping African citizens from migrating into Europe appears to have been lost entirely. Instead, the declaration pronounces African legal migration to be a positive thing, even stressing the beneficial idea of migration of certain groups, such as researchers and business people… The Hungarian government appears to be the only government that considers whether the citizens it was elected to serve would support the declaration. Other European governments appear to think that asking their electorates what they think about African migration into Europe is irrelevant..” – Judith Bergman, “EU: How to stop mass-migration from Africa? Bring everyone to Europe!” – Gatestone Institute, May 25th, 2018.

“The Scottish government has confirmed that asylum seekers and refugees will be handed the vote under plans to expand the franchise… Scotland has already made use of powers devolved in 2016 which allow politicians to make big changes to the country’s electorate, with its parliament voting unanimously to lower the age of franchise to 16 in the same year.” – Virginia Hale, “Scottish government greenlights plan to let asylum seekers, refugees vote” – Breitbart, May 25th, 2018.

“People with possible information on the case should be contacting Peel police, the (Ontario Gurdwaras) committee said, not the Indian Consulate.

“The future size of the [People’s Liberation Army] Navy will be about 550 warships and submarines by 2030. That is twice the size of today’s U.S. Navy… As such, it’s clear the U.S. Navy is at great risk. We simply are not adequately sized or outfitted to meet our national security commitments in the Indo-Asia Pacific, let alone around the globe” – Retired U.S. Navy Capt. James Fanell addressing a House Intelligence Committee hearing, quoted by Kristina Wong in “Expert: China’s navy will be double the size of U.S. Navy by 2030” – Breitbart, May 21st, 2018.

“(Jamaican-Canadian) Councillor Michael Thompson, chair of economic development committee, has spent $75,338 to travel around the world in 2016 and 2017, more than the previous chair, any city councillors and even the mayor. He almost always claimed the full amount of travel allowance for food and other expenses, even when meals were provided, and for cellphone bills with steep roaming charges, including one for about $2,000 the same month he went to India and Sri Lanka.” – Samantha Beattie, “Toronto councillor stayed in $900-a-night Chateau Marmont. He says it was money well spent” – Toronto Star, May 28th, 2018.
