“A big part of the PM’s job is to be accountable to the elected representatives of the Canadian People by answering questions in Parliament… But as we recently saw, Justin Trudeau has arrogantly decided that he can simply refuse to answer questions put to him when he feels like it… If you had to think of what Trudeau’s arrogant refusal to respond means, it really comes down to his attitude that he is the king of Canada, and thinks he’s above all of us… This means that the very legitimacy of the government is brought into question, because a ‘leader’ who refuses to be accountable to the representatives of the people is spitting in the face of democracy.” – Spencer Fernando, “If Trudeau thinks he’s above answering questions, Canadians should be above paying taxes” – Sept. 21st, 2018.

“Berliners go and pee among the stelae of their Holocaust memorial. There are about three thousand concrete slabs, or stelas, the place is rather dark, and the smell leaves you with no doubt that local men found a solution to the lack of urinals. But not every city is blessed with such a graceful and useful memorial.” – Israel Shamir, “Toilet Wars” – The Unz Review, Sept. 22nd, 2018. (Excellent and humourous, you can read it here).

“Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election coming up in November against my administration… They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade and we are winning on trade.” – President Donald Trump, quoted by Charlie Spiering in “Donald Trump accuses China of interfering in American midterm elections” – Breitbart, Sept. 26th, 2018.

“The anonymous anti-Trump screed is very concerned with foreign policy. By far the most conspicuous locus of dissension about foreign policy within the Trump Administration has been between President Trump and Nikki Haley. But Nikki Haley hardly has a brain in her head… Since Jon Lerner happens to be Nikki Haley’s deputy, it seems entirely likely that Lerner, telling Nikki Haley what to think and what to say, is the behind-the-scenes cause of this dissension.” – Bradford Hanson, “Most likely perpetrator of anti-Trump op-ed is a neoconservative Jew” – National Vanguard, Sept. 27th, 2018.

“A review of some of the evolving threats and vulnerabilities to America’s critical infrastructure reveals a future no less dangerous than the situation today. The specter of stuck subway cars in deep underground tunnels, imperiling the lives of tens of thousands commuters, breached dams, threatening towns downstream, jammed telecommunications networks and megacities froze by electricity blackouts should – and do – cause many a security experts to lose sleep… With more than 80 percent of the critical infrastructure in the United States owned by the private sector, expensive security measures inevitably have to compete against an array of economic considerations, creating a reality where security alone is never the deciding factor.” – Johnathan Tal, “America’s critical infrastructure: Threats, vulnerabilities and solutions” – Security InfoWatch, Sept. 20th, 2018.
