Examples of infiltrate in a Sentence

  1. Donald Trump:

    Theyre trying to infiltrate the White House, long after the election, this is a disgrace. Hopefully the attorney general will do whats right, and I believe he will. ... Its possibly the greatest scandal in the history of this country.

  2. Brian Deschanel:

    People have become extremely superficial, and feel the need to use and worship a worthless, and fictitious paper out of thin air, which is backed by absolutely nothing, called money (that everyone's been conned into) to be socially respected. People are so lost and franticly divided in their miniscule gender war, chauvinistic and narcissistic fashionista, sports, porn, drug and alcohol consuming, sue happy, sadistic, profiteering sociopathic and psychopathic false ideological (religious and political) activities, that they look but don't see their future right in their face, and yet careless to wake up, acknowledge, and react. I guess Murphy is right, when he says The light at the end of the tunnel, is the train heading for us! This ill fated world population has become a giant worn-out, and sabotaged machine that continues to operate for worse, heading to self-destruction. Thanks to our caring corporate bought and paid- for governments for providing us the indoctrinations and mind controlling schools, press, entertainment, social media, health, politics ( left vs right paradigm, and etc.), religions, police, and justice systems, and not to mention, all ideological (religious and political) high priests, who believe and follow the God named Benjamin, are nothing more than unlawfully paid and legalised criminals in uniform, who are employed to exploit and violate everyone's fundamental rights, sovereignty, well being, and withholding the truth, to prevent mankind’s awakening, and constantly injecting fear into all, while the corporate jezebels rapists, and paedophiliacs that we refer to as politicians, use Hegelian dialectic, spread propagandas, and manufacture false flags to raid and plunder innocents at home and around the world, in the name of security, peace, freedom, health, law, science, and technology. On top of all, these power hungry and greedy psychopaths deploy AI, 5G towers, smart meters, robots, contaminated water supplies, genetically modified junks, chemtrails, poisonous and cancerous treatments, lab generated diseases, euthanasia, mind controlling devices (TVs, phones, tablets, desktops and laptops), pictures and audios with subliminal messages, to infiltrate every individual's body and mind to it's core, redirecting our impulses, and artificially inducing our state of consciousness as mentioned in They Live, in pursuit of destruction of mankind's collectiveness, and driving all livings into extinction, where, the unofficial Doomsday clock is only 15 seconds to midnight! For as long as people are kept asleep, and continue supplying their sweat, voice, time, and efforts to these self entitled, parasitic, and merciless predators known as the ruling class, nothing will change, and the agenda will continue forward, full steam. This is a world-wide madness, and it requires large supplies in high doses of red pill to prevent the annihilation of our beautiful nature and the mother Earth.

  4. Ben Carson:

    If I were one of the leaders of the global jihadist movement and I didn't infiltrate that group of people with my people ... that would be almost malpractice.

  5. Ron Avi Astor:

    In the United States, United States's a little bit more quiet, but United States's there. We hear United States in the discussions about building a wall, those kinds of political comments and views and feelings, we're pretty certain, infiltrate themselves into the classroom and into schools.
