  1. It seems to me that Cathie Black keeps saying:

    "Resistance is futile!"

    I am guessing she watched a lot of Star Trek on tv:

    Resistance is futile

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search

    The phrase "resistance is futile" became "prevalent in popular culture" from its use in the television show Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–1994).[1][2][3]
