And when Germany falls, and it will, that’s when the panic begins to set in.” ~ George Friedman

And people sense that those are not the real refugees. And our government has spent billions of euros on them, and the Dutch people know.” ~ Geert Wilders

  56. “Unlike other countries, we’re not skeptical at all when it comes to EU expansion. In fact, we are in favor of admitting Ukraine and Turkey. In this sense, one can hardly say that we are focusing unilaterally on our own national interests. Austria, for example, has held up the negotiations for Turkey’s admission to the EU. Why am I against deeper involvement in the EU? There are several reasons for that.” ~ Lech Kaczynski

Any historian, commentator or scientist who doubts that is taken to prison or gets condemned.

There’s a lot of Shatners in Montreal.” ~ William Shatner
