“I fancied myself as some kind of god …If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.” When asked by Britain’s Independent newspaper to elaborate on that statement, Soros doubled down: “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” – Pamela Geller, “George Soros partners with #Mastercard to hand out money to migrants” – Washington Standard, Nov. 7th, 2018.

“Instead of overt military invasions of their neighbors, the Chinese are using technology, economic ploys, and diplomacy to gain footholds inside the U.S. and other rival nations… In a sense, the Chinese are hijacking the American system, harnessing it for use against us. China has enlisted American corporations, politicians, and even public opinion to create a Trojan Horse effect inside our borders. It has sent spies in various disguises, ranging from low-level observers to high-profile executives, to steal our secrets, to insert malware into our computers, and even to sell us communications equipment designed to allow them to listen in.” – Robert Arvay, “China 2018 = Japan 1918” – American Thinker, Dec. 7th, 2018.

“We think it is very important for Canada to understand how China is operating throughout the world,” Wu told me during a meeting with our delegation in the capital Taipei. “I think the Chinese are also coming into Canada, trying to infiltrate into your domestic-political agenda. That’s the way they tried to infiltrate into Australia, New Zealand and some other countries in Western Europe, but Taiwan is the country that China has infiltrated more seriously.” – Taiwan Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Wu, quoted by Anthony Furey, “Canada needs to be wary of China, Taiwan’s foreign minister warns” – Toronto Sun, Dec. 1st, 2018.

“This ‘deal’ will cost the British taxpayer £60 billion; require that the British still comply with EU rules without having any say in what those will be, and worst of all, it permits the British to leave the EU only if the EU agrees. It commits the British effectively to subjugation by the EU in perpetuity, with no recourse should the British change their mind… There is still a way out of this mess; an easy alternative. The solution is No Deal. Without any further action, the UK’s membership of the EU will lapse on March 29, 2019, and unless that majority can unite around a viable alternative, we will leave. Even better, according to a House of Lords report, there would be no legal obligation for the UK to make any payment as part of a financial settlement.” – David Brown, “The worst deal in history: Theresa May’s surrender” – The Gatestone Institute, Dec. 4th, 2018.

“The global dimming scheme is, of course, based on spraying chemtrails into the upper atmosphere using thousands of high-altitude flights that release pollution to dim the sun. The very idea of ‘chemtrails’ has, until now, been mocked by the media and the science establishment, who have for years claimed the very idea of chemtrails is a lunatic conspiracy theory. So they’ve changed the name to ‘stratospheric aerosol injection,’ and they now have a science paper that outlines all the costs involved.” – Mike Adams, “Terraforming has begun: ‘Global dimming’ plot to eterminate humanity revealed” – Infowars, Dec. 5th, 2018.

“Vigneault highlighted the threats to Canadian enterprise and intellectual property posed by espionage and cyberattacks in his speech, which was aimed at business leaders. He pointed to a particular spike in espionage in fields crucial to China’s growth, including A.I., quantum technology, 5G, biopharma, and clean tech… ‘It’s difficult to put a dollar figure on how much advanced nations lose to state-sponsored economic espionage,’ he said.” – Max de Haldevang. “Spying and propaganda are now greater challenges than terrorism, Canada’s spy chief says” – qz.com, Dec. 6th, 2018.

“With Ms. Meng, 46, seated inside a glass box at British Columbia’s Supreme Court, Mr. Gibb-Carsley laid out what had led to her arrest. He said that between 2009 and 2014, Huawei used a Hong Kong company, Skycom Tech, to make transactions in Iran and do business with telecom companies there, in violation of American sanctions. Banks in the United States cleared financial transactions for Huawei, inadvertently doing business with Skycom, he said… The banks were ‘victim institutions’ of fraud by Ms. Meng, Mr. Gibb-Carsley said.” – Kate conger, “Huawei executive took part in sanctions fraud, prosecutors say” – New York Times, Dec. 7th, 2018.

“While discussing improving the fraternity’s image with the university, Mr. Z offhandedly suggested that Sigma Chi remove the potentially discomforting symbol outside: the American flag flown in front of the house… While this remark was just one in a larger discussion on rebranding the house, it stands out. Mr. Z’s recommendation insinuated not only that the flag made others uncomfortable but that its being flown tainted Sigma Chi’s reputation and, presumably, worsened its chance of survival. Lozano understood Mr. Z to imply that the American flag, as a symbol, could be intimidating, aggressive or alienating. Mr. Z’s tone further signaled to Lozano that he found the mere sight of the American flag to be offensive.” – K. Walker, “Major snowflake university tellsfrat their U.S. flag is ‘intimidating’ – the frat’s response was bad@ss!” – Clash Daily, Dec. 5th, 2018.
