Examples of chamberlain in a Sentence

  1. Mike Huckabee:

    He never should have been jailed and it's embarrassing that John Kerry and Obama negotiate with Iran as innocent Americans remained locked-up in prison, president Obama is a complete fool for trusting a country that's been lying, cheating, murdering and sponsoring terrorism around the globe for 37 years. Empowering Iran with sanctions relief is like Neville Chamberlain writing a $150 billion check to Adolf Hitler hoping he'll play nice and behave. This Iran deal is an insane disaster and this White House has lost its mind.

  2. Nate Thurmond:

    I really liked Wilt Chamberlain as a person.

  3. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee:

    We still went into an appeasement mode with the efforts of Chamberlain, it was disastrous, i'm simply saying when you've had 36 years of Iranian threats to destroy Israel ... when they say that they want to be able to destroy Israel and all the Jews by having them in one place ... those aren't my words. Those are their words.

  4. Jona Lueddeckins:

    There's a David Smith, John Chamberlain, Albert Oehlen and everyone knows them but it doesn't stop there, there are artists that did amazing spray work but for one reason or other aren't known in the broader public — there are lots of discoveries to make, even for people who know a lot about art.

  5. Benito Mussolini:

    Race! It is a feeling, not a reality: ninety-five percent, at least, is a feeling. Nothing will ever make me believe that biologically pure races can be shown to exist today. Amusingly enough, not one of those who have proclaimed the "nobility" of the Teutonic race was himself a Teuton. Gobineau was a Frenchman, Chamberlain, an Englishman; Woltmann, a Jew; Lapouge, another Frenchman.
