On the Trump 'cult':

"Steve Hassan is one of America’s leading experts on cults and mind-control has provided an analysis of President Trump and the indoctrination tactics he has used to create the fanatical devotion from his supporters. Trump’s behavior has become disturbing because he increasingly relies on phrases like 'fake news.' Perhaps, the real issues are hypocritical Christians and a political cult headed by Mitch McConnell, who are sworn to protect Trump even if it results in the end of majority rule, i.e., democracy. Democratic politicians should recall the very old poem: 'If you can keep your head when all about you; Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you; But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating."

On following President Trump's lead:

"Every defendant with pending charges against him for whatever attempted crimes should take the our amazing president's lead and fight the fake charges against them and not give an inch to the prosecutors."

On a Sound Off:

"Another Hillary Clinton delusional defender tries to cover over her crimes. Supposedly Hillary reached out to warmongering deep stater Colin Powell as to how he prevented having his official emails, which we taxpayers shell out big bucks for, exposed. The story is he told her he used a private email account, so Clinton takes it a step further and decides to have her own server to host her emails despite being officially warned three times that it was illegal and violated federal and State Department rules. Her emails, containing top secret confidential government information, were found, among other places, on the laptop of her aide's pedophile husband. Despite the defense of Hillary by the deep state head of the FBI Comey, if this was you or me, we'd be in prison for 20 years. If this was Trump, the Democratic house would vote to impeach and then hang him."

On Delaware County:

"The current situation involving many agencies in Delaware County should have its residents very concerned. We have a county attorney and her cronies who are accused of willingly, and probably knowingly, violating the civil rights of a child and a sheriff who campaigns basically against our Fourth through Eighth Amendment rights. These are the people we should be scared of. It's obvious that these people seek power and have shown their greed for control by violating the civil rights of a child and speaking out against our civil rights. People should take each civil right more seriously, not listening to fear mongering and rid the county of its corrupt employees."

On a no-knock drug raid:

"That's pretty scary. I didn't think police around here used the non-constitutional no-knock raid. Though I shouldn't be surprised considering that New York cares little for constitutional amendments, with our communist SAFE Act. Don't get it wrong, I don't support drug dealers any more than the police do. Busting into someones house with out telling them what is going is so wrong it makes the British of 1776 look like saviors. Here is a quote that explains it better from a police officer from Houston. 'We’ve had four officers shot, two civilians killed,' Chief Acevedo told reporters ... . 'I don’t see the value in them. So that’s probably going to go by the wayside.' It was just lucky this one went so well."
