Nicholas Hensley interview[edit]

8/7, 3:22pm William Saturn:

Nicholas, I am writing an article for Wikinews about the Reform Party presidential race. Can you confirm that you encouraged Darcy Richardson to run for the nomination? Also, did you encourage Rocky De La Fuente to enter the race as well or did somebody else within the party do so?

8/7, 3:31pm Nicholas Hensley:

I encouraged Darcy. Rocky was encouraged by Richard Winger.

Tom Tancredo interview[edit]

7/22, 2:51am William Saturn:

What did you think of Trump's speech?

7/22, 10:10am Thomas Tancredo:

Best I've heard from him

7/22, 2:02pm William Saturn:

Were you disappointed by Cruz?

7/22, 2:07pm Thomas Tancredo:

Certainly was. He needs to realize and appreciate the bigger picture. It's more important than his personal feelings about his wife or father. You can still hate Donald Trump for the things he says he has to recognize what will happen to the country if the Supreme Court is under the control of Hillary Clinton

7/29, 1:56pm William Saturn:

Would you mind if I used your Cruz comments for an article I'm writing on Wikinews?

7/29, 2:02pm Thomas Tancredo:

Sure You can add that he could have avoided the problem and "lived with himself" by passing on the invitation to speak. Apparently the few minutes still in the spotlight was too alluring

CAT:Islam[edit]

I don't think CAT:Islam should be there in the article. Plus, the article doesn't mention Islam even once.

Try a string search for "Muslim". --Pi zero (talk) 02:11, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Review status[edit]

I'm starting a massive push to get this out the door; days later than I should have, but I am doing so now. --Pi zero (talk) 15:44, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

  • The order in which I processed sources/documentation last month worked better than the order I used this month.
