44 Afghan troops vanish on training visits to USA amid security fears

Although the number of disappearances is relatively small – some 2,200 Afghan troops have received military training in the United States since 2007 – the incidents raise questions about security and screening procedures for the programmes.

They are also potentially embarrassing for President Barack Obama’s administration, which has spent billions of dollars training Afghan troops as Washington seeks to extricate itself from the costly, 15-year-old war.


October unanimously proclaimed Islamic Heritage Month in Ontario

Ontario legislature unanimously passed on Thursday, October 6, 2016, an act proclaiming October as an Islamic Heritage Month in Ontario.

On September 26, NDP Citizenship and Immigration Critic, MPP Teresa Armstrong (London-Fanshawe) introduced the bill “as part of the NDP’s plan to fight islamophobia.”

“Over the past few weeks, we have been pushing for Islamic Heritage Month to be officially recognized in Ontario,” said Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath during a press conference Thursday morning at Queen’s Park. “Establishing October as Islamic Heritage Month in Ontario is an important opportunity to celebrate Islamic culture and to reaffirm that our province’s diversity is something to celebrate. The NDP is proud to stand with the Muslim community in making this happen.”


Trudeau doubles Canada Summer Jobs spending, but student employment stays flat

But despite the boost, Statistics Canada found student summer employment rates for 2016 stuck roughly where they were in 2015.

ISIS orders Western jihadis to become serial killers

The fanatical hate group is urging extremists in Europe and the US to carry out multiple random knife attacks to strike terror into the hearts of civilised societies.

In its latest poisonous propaganda offering the unhinged Islamist cult urges would-be jihadis to overcome their squeamishness and use knives instead of guns, because it is easier to carry out large numbers of murders undetected.


Climate change debate turns to how it will affect Justin Trudeau and Lisa Raitt’s loved ones

In the midst of offering his assurances about carbon pricing, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau slipped, and the T-word passed his lips.

“What we are also guaranteeing,” he said, midway through his second response in the House on Wednesday, “is that this tax—”

At that, the Conservatives cheered and leapt up to applaud. The prime minister stood, smiling slightly, and waited for the roar to dull.


UW students sell anti-police, anti-white hoodies

Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are asking people to buy sweatshirts promoting violence against police officers and classifying all white people as racists.

“Racism,” claims one hoodie’s page, “is a set of systematic, institutional, cultural, and epistemological (although not limited to said forms) structures that inherently empowers white folk and in turn disempowers people of color. This power dictates who lives, have housing, access to education/healthcare etc. Racism has little to do with hatred and mostly to do with who has power.”


Chelsea Clinton: The Trump Campaign Is ‘Deeply Troubling’

“What feels different about this election to me is I don’t remember a time when so many Americans were being attacked by a major party’s presidential nominee — the attacks against women, against immigrants, against minorities, against our LGBT community, against Americans with disabilities, against a Gold Star family.”


Global Bureaucrats Invited By Obama To Inspect US Elections

Hundreds of foreigners are expected to enter America within the next month in order to observe the American electoral process.

The United States sends representatives to other nations with dubious democratic processes to survey the voting systems and look for fraudulent practices. But now it seems that America is the one being inspected and scrutinized.

American U. plans ‘restorative justice’ sanctions against students who commit acts of bias

“When Student Conduct Code violations involve student victims, the Office of Student Conduct is prepared to integrate restorative justice into the inventory of sanctions imposed in such cases,” the action item reads. “The Conduct Code will need to be amended accordingly.”

The memo doesn’t define restorative justice, but in other contexts the phrase generally describes sanctions imposed on an accused person that offer rehabilitation through reconciliation with victims and the community.


Canada signs on to world’s 1st airline climate plan

A day after ratifying the Paris climate change accord, Canada has signed on to the first global agreement to tackle pollution in the airline industry.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau called it a “historic agreement,” but some critics say it won’t do enough to help fight global warming.

    As with the Islamic month I think this is a test if people support it the Ndp could say we should have some form of Sharia law.

    • tom_billesley

      It’s a trojan horse. If an islamic heritage month is recognized, it’ll mean spending taxpayer’s money on da’wah. We’ll be paying for events at schools, colleges, and universities, and also at civic functions, iftar dinners and the like, all with invited speakers spouting the usual taqiyya, tawriya, kitman, and muruna.

    You forgot to list the most important news story of the century. A beer can was thrown on the field at a baseball game. Yes, all the media is still giving major coverage to the biggest story of humankind. The Western media at work.

    re: Andrea Horwath’s vow to ‘celebrate Islamic culture’

    This is pretty rich coming from a divorced woman, with custody of her child (son) who is in a position of leadership.

    Three things that are highly uncommon for women living in ‘Islamic culture(s)’.

    Judging by the backlash on social media, it’s pretty f-n obvious that none of our politicians consulted with their constituents before voting UNANIMOUSLY for ‘Islamic Heritage Month’.

    Clearly these clowns have forgotten just who it is they work for!

    1st airline climate plan
    Greens can’t abide aircraft, because the designers haven’t eradicated the right wing.
    They’d be more at home in a hot air balloon; less of a passenger and more of a participant.

    Yeah I know what you mean, all us deplorables being attacked by Trump? What POS.

  • moraywatson

    How on earth could a vote for ‘Islamic Heritage Month’ be unanimous? Is our legislature in Ontario filled with cowards and dhimmis?

    Restorative Justice is something you see in sharia like when they cut off a thief’s hand. So anyone accused of a some kind of vaguely defined racial crime should of course be lynched.

      Chelsea, have a heart to heart talk with your mother. She has attacked millions of Americans as deplorables, irredeemables and basement dwellers. Maybe that will ease your troubles.

      • simus1

        Chelsea has the required pedigree to birth an antichrist – perhaps not THE awaited major league one, but definitely a showstopper standin.

    I hope that Obama’s election observers, particularly any from Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, China and Turkey declare that the US elections are fair.

  • Maggat

    We should have left the space cadet, Garneau, in space where he could do very little damage. Actually the whole liberal caucus consists of space cadets.
