    On Monday’s edition of NBC’s “MTP Now,” Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) said that the only way to have success against Hamas is through diplomacy and “Hamas is much more than a military organization, it’s a movement. And the manner in which Israel has conducted this war is a recruiting tool for Hamas. So, they’re really not accomplishing what they want to do if the destruction occurs at the level it has so far. They need to be much more surgical and tactical.” Quigley stated, “[A]ny success there is going to be done diplomatically. So, those efforts to get a ceasefire...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of “CNN News Central,” Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) stated that “the fact that this is an extraordinarily strong economy” is one key factor in recent wins by Democratic candidates in recent special elections in Ohio, Wisconsin, and New York. Quigley said, “I think you have to look beyond just that special election [in New York] to the recent elections in Ohio and Wisconsin. I think the fact that the economy is very strong, and the fact that, when choice is on the ballot, Democrats win, all add to this. And I do think the fact that Speaker...

    On Friday’s “CNN Newsroom,” Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) stated that the Chinese spy balloon is a serious issue, but we should note that “the low orbit Chinese satellites have been there for years, they’re there all the time. I don’t want the American people to think this is something new and that all of a sudden we have a concern that we didn’t have before.” Quigley stated that Secretary of State Tony Blinken should not have canceled his trip to China over the balloon, and that “if you’re angry about something, don’t talk about it through the press, talk about...

    Representative Mike Quigley (D-IL) said Friday on CNN’s “Newsroom” if the Justice Department does not indict former President Donald Trump, it would be a “jolt to our democracy.” Anchor Jim Sciutto said, “The January 6 Committee delivered the final report last night. It makes the case that there was criminal activity by the former president as well as people around him to overturn that election. It now it goes to the DOJ to make that decision. It is now up to the DOJ to act here. In your view, if it fails to hold Donald Trump responsible for this, and...

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Jose Díaz-Balart Reports,” House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force member Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) advocated for treating gun violence as an issue of public health and stated that doing so “makes all the sense in the world.” Quigley stated, “Look, treating gun violence as a public health issue — you had earlier segments on that — makes all the sense in the world. Identify the risk factors, tests, procedures that might work to reduce the gun violence that’s taking place in this country. I go way out there. Because ultimately, no single issue is going...

    Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) defended Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent and Ambassador William Taylor for not having firsthand accounts on President Trump's phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. "I guess to close, primer on hearsay, I think the American public needs to be reminded that countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay," Quigley said on Wednesday. "Hearsay can be much better evidence than direct, as we have learned in painful instances and it's certainly valid in this instance," he added.

    A Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee says he is worried that the Russians “never left,” raising the specter that Moscow is looking to interfere in the upcoming midterm elections through cyber or other means. “I am concerned that the Russians never left,” Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) told CBS News when asked about his concerns about threats to the 2018 midterm elections. Quigley also alleged that Russia-linked hackers breached “somewhere between 20 and 40 state board of elections,” including the Illinois voter database, in 2016 and alleged that states are not prepared for future interference efforts by Russia. “First, they...

    Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) said Monday that Rep. Devin Nunes worked with the Trump White House to "concoct" the recently unclassified FISA memo and that they had numerous co-conspirators. When asked if then-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe told the Intel Committee behind closed doors that if not for the Steele dossier no FISA warrant would have been issued, he said that was taken "out of context" and that those were "not his exact words." He called the dossier "largely accurate." "This investigation began independently of the dossier and the fact is the dossier is largely accurate," Quigley said on Monday's...

    In name and in aim, it's a bill for our political moment. Ladies and gentlemen, Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois presents: the Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement, or COVFEFE Act. As Congress has taught us time and again, any legislative priority can be pretzeled into an acronym if you simply toss away the conventions of standard American English. But like the best legislative acronyms, the Covfefe Act's title points to its content. If you've forgotten, or you called in sick to the national conversation on May 31, President Trump tweeted simply, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe", which...

    Last year, eight members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence issued a demand that their staffers be granted access to top secret classified information. The signatories to the letter were Andre Carson, Luis Guiterez, Jim Himes, Terri Sewell, Jackie Speier, Mike Quigley, Eric Swalwell and Patrick Murphy. All the signatories were Democrats. Some had a history of attempting to undermine national security. Two of them have been linked to an emerging security breach. The office of Andre Carson, the second Muslim in Congress, had employed Imran Awan. As did the offices of Jackie Speier and Debbie Wasserman Schultz;...

    As the intensity and ferocity of national and international events seems to accelerate towards chaos, it seems to me and many others that all this is unfolding by human design. Forces at work on national and international levels seem to have been coordinating just such a climax for many years. It often appears that opposing interests are merely battling it out, but then there is often the sense that the appearance of opposing interests is merely an illusion put forth to keep us off guard as to what is actually happening on a larger scale. Is there a grand conspiracy,...

    Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time | 1966 | Carroll Quigley
    Carroll Quigley, in the course of his examination of the failure of most Latin American / South American nations-states, delivered an astonishing analysis of what he believed to be the root cause of these failures in the first edition (1966) of his renowned Tragedy and Hope. Here, in almost an aside, he defines what he calls the "Pakistani-Peruvian axis" - a combination of Asian despotism and Arabic outlook (key word, that - outlook), both of which have their roots in Bronze Age antiquity, that pervade what Quigley calls the shattered cultures that dwell on its axis from Pakistan to the...

As you can see in the video below, he proceeded in his congressional capacity to apologize on behalf of the country for discrimination against muslims’ faith.

    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | August 31, 2010 | Winthrop Quigley
    The culture of America is always under siege. Countless new arrivals have transformed American culture over the generations. Muslims from places as diverse as Morocco, Albania and Malaysia will change American culture, too. Whoever follows them will change it again. The idea that a handful of Islamic radicals can destroy a nation of 300 million people protected by the world's largest military is absurd. But questions about the Muslim world and its intentions toward the United States deserve answers, and I don't mean the ignorant rants polluting cyberspace. Fortunately, we have Karen Armstrong, a former Roman Catholic nun and an...

    Chicago Press Release | June 28, 2010
    CHICAGO (CHICAGOPRESSRELEASE.COM) — Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (D-IL) released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the City of Chicago’s handgun ban. Earlier this year, Quigley spearheaded the effort of 55 Members of Congress in filing a “friend of the court” amicus brief, urging the Court to allow Chicago’s handgun ban to stand. Quigley also supports the right of state and local governments to maintain sensible restrictions on gun possession and use. “I am disappointed and disheartened by the Supreme Court’s decision today. When illegal guns flood our streets, precious lives are lost and communities are...
