Portland bakery is accused of racism for selling ‘very troubling’ Oreo cupcake called ‘Mr President’

A bakery has been accused of racism for stocking an Oreo cupcake called the ‘Mr President’.

Fat Cupcake in Portland, Oregon, has come under fire for the controversial pastry.

A customer of the newly-opened bakery complained about the name online, saying they were so offended by it they would stop shopping there.


Donna Brazile Shared CNN Town Hall Questions With Clinton Camp

Donna Brazile, the current head of the Democratic National Committee, appears to have tipped the Clinton campaign off to a question about the death penalty that was going to be asked during a CNN town hall in March, newly released emails show.

“From time to time I get the questions in advance,” Brazile wrote in an email to Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri on March 12.


Trump ‘dangerous’ from world viewpoint: UN

If Republican candidate Donald Trump is elected president of the United States, it would be “dangerous from an international point of view”, the top United Nations human rights official says.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein cited Trump’s views on vulnerable communities and his talk of using torture, banned under international law, as “deeply unsettling and disturbing”.

“If Donald Trump is elected on the basis of what he has said already – and unless that changes – I think it is without a doubt that he would be dangerous from an international point of view,” Zeid told a news briefing in Geneva.


A fractured France at the crossroad of multiple risks

Since the beginning of 2015, the socio-political situation in France has become strained following a string of terrorist attacks as well as a wave of anti-government protests. Political violence and unrest coupled with stagnating macroeconomic performances have weakened the ruling Parti Socialiste (PS) and ushered in a “new normal”.

As France is set to ready itself for the May 2017 presidential elections, the country is at the crossroad of several political risks increasing the potential for relatively ineffective policy making as well as social and communal tensions. While pre-elections rivalries will soar and the government-unions power play will continue to lead to periodic unrest, the elevated terrorist threat generated by radical Islamists will remain a major issue weighing on the political debate and everyday life.


Ontario’s government-made energy catastrophe

The doubling of electricity prices since 2005 is big politically, but it is just the top-line item on a long list of problems, misconceptions and outright fabrications that lurk within the Liberal government’s decade-long pursuit of radical greenism.

Instead of being a worthy model for other nations and states, the province’s green energy megaproject stands as a cautionary tale. Alberta’s NDP government, also under the spell of green activists, should look twice before following its plan to kill coal and turn green.



Cut funds to states that turn away refugees, Italy urges EU

Italy is the main destination for the waves of migrants fleeing violence and poverty in Africa. It is housing 160,000 asylum seekers out of more than 460,000 refugees who have reached its shores from North Africa since the start of 2014, Ministry of the Interior data shows.

Of 39,600 refugees due to be relocated from Italy under an EU quota plan, so far only 1,300 have been moved, according to the European Commission.

While outlining his priorities for the EU’s next summit meeting on 20-21 October in Brussels, Renzi told parliament: “It’s necessary that Italy be the promoter of a very tough position toward those countries that have received a lot of money for belonging to the bloc to relaunch their territories, and who are shirking their commitments to relocate immigrants.”


Email Leak: Democrats Want A ‘Compliant And Unaware Citizenry’

A Clinton campaign email released as part of the Wikileaks data dump earlier today talks about the need to maintain political power by producing “an unaware and compliant citizenry”.

“And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry,” he writes.

The email was sent to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta by former Clinton administration official Bill Ivy on March 13, 2016.


Professor explains the rise of ‘precious snowflakes’ – cites narcissism, over-nurturing

The political correctness movement that has swept college campuses, corporate America and mainstream life can be traced back to a few psychological trends.

Howard Schwartz, professor emeritus of Oakland University, has for years studied the psychology underlying political correctness, and in his new book Political Correctness and the Destruction of Social Order: Chronicling the Rise of the Pristine Self, he offers some clarity on why the term “snowflakes” is now synonymous with college students today.

Schwartz, who taught classes in social and behavioral science within its business school, said the term stems from what he calls “the rise of the pristine self.”


Where are Syrian refugees settling in Canada?

The UN has estimated that in five years, the Syrian conflict has driven more than 4.8 million refugees to neighbouring countries, hundreds of thousands in Europe, and displaced 6.6 million people inside Syria against a pre-war population of over 20 million.

To ensure Canada did its part, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged to bring in 25,000 refugees by February 2016 and an additional 25,000 government-supported refugees by the end of 2016.

And nearly a year after Canada proposed the #WelcomeRefugees initiative; the ambitious goals are being met.


Muslim family of award-winning data scientist flees North Carolina for Pakistan after their youngest son, 7, was ‘brutalized by bullies for religion’

The concerned parents reported the incident to the school and officials launched an investigation.

However, they said initial interviews with other students and the bus driver didn’t confirm the child’s account of events.

Lisa Luten, a spokeswoman for Wake County Public School System, told The Huffington Post that no students on the bus or the bus driver said they saw an altercation.

She claimed the family didn’t report that the students made references to Muslims, Pakistan and Islam, however, an email the father sent to the school principal over what happened states what was said to his son.

‘The kids who beat him up mentioned Muslims, makes fun of his name starts with Abdul and reference his preference of eating only certain (halal) food,’ Usmani wrote in the email.

‘My son is very traumatized and shocked as he has just celebrated his birthday with his classmates few days ago.’

Luten said that the behavior described by the little boy is ‘not tolerated’ in the schools and that the investigation is still ongoing.

One less sleeper cell, then.

    He beat the kid himself, probably raped him, and went back to Paki-land before he could be arrested.

    • marty_p

      I bet that what actually happened was little Mo probably told his classmates they were infidels and would burn in Hell and they decided he needed some physical motivation to retract his comments.

    I am glad we were enriched by the departure of the pisslamist.

    Wynne told the media yesterday, that people in Ontario are bad actors when it comes to carbon use. Gee, you mean we evil taxpayers who have to heat our homes and drive our cars? Sorry if we all don’t live in downtown Toronto.

    • xavier

      Well wouldn’the want the deplorables to soil their pristine properties and cause a reversal of the gentrification.

      Maybe the Liberas could magically turn Ontario to a subtropical climate and thus no need to heat

    • A Hamilton Guy

      Why do we have to keep seeing ugly pictures?

  • Gary

    So a muslim beheads a co-worker and that’s just fine……but the real crisis is a Father that alleges his son was bullied at school.

    After over 40 years in canada, Pakistani’s are still crying racism and playing the victims as Muslim. The Toronto-18 were Pakistani background muslims lead by a Afghanistan refugee we took in that plotted to slaughter over 5000 of us because Chretien sent our troops into his Homeland that were killing his muslim brothers in the Taliban.
    This exposed Chief Blair’s Press release that the Terrorism had NOTHING to do with islam as a POS which is normal for the CBC and Star.

  • Justin St.Denis

    I find this family’s story virtually impossible to believe.

  • Editor

    Maybe, if for every 20 times CAIR, or muslim “community organizers” publicly complained about islamophobia, their free accomodations, their free EBT food, the free schools, etc, they took the time to thank their host country for the welcome, generous support and incredible opportunity to start a new life in a way better country than the utter shithole they left, of their own accord I might add, maybe we’d be more sympathetic to little Abdul Aziz’ plight.

  • Liberal Progressive

    UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein says Trump is dangerous, and clearly the only solution is to put the United States under United Nations governance and bring in UN troops should Trump be elected by the ignorant red-neck American masses!

    • Why do I get the feeling you’re only half jesting?

      • Liberal Progressive

        I hope you aren’t questioning Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein? That would be Islamophobia!

        Besides he is with the United Nations and they represent the best of the World!

        • Norman_In_New_York

          Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein and human rights is an oxymoron.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      That’s because he knows the u.n. is apiece of shit

  • moraywatson

    The “Mr President” cupcake is not actually named for Obama, it is named for Slick Willie because it is cream filled.

  • Luke Hanford

    Oreo is a good way to describe Obama but if you really want to be racist a watermelon cupcake called Mr president would do the trick

  • Dana Garcia

    Surely the sensitive muslim family will be much happier in Pakistan, where the top religious honchos are still trying to execute a Christian woman for an imagined slight against mohammed years ago.

  • “Donna Brazile Shared CNN Town Hall Questions With Clinton Camp”

    Okay, so now that we know this what is the Presidential Debate Commission going to do about it? It gave Clinton an unfair advantage — no statement of rebuke at least?

    The municipal administration has sent a letter to the coordinating minister, asking the minister’s office to take over all immigrants in the locale.
    The mayor said Thursday he asked for the minister’s guidelines about how to deal with the “social problems caused by the immigrants”. He said the high number of unsupervised immigrants living in public facilities had given the place a negative image.
    “We are asking for the immigrants to be removed” the mayor said. “We want our reputation as an investment destination to be maintained.”

    The Immigration Office recorded 362 immigrants, 280 of whom live in a hotel and 61 at the Immigration Office Detention Center. The immigrants’ cost of living is funded by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). There are also 82 immigrants living in the park.
    The immigrants are from Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia and Ethiopia. The municipality said the immigrants have made the park “dirty”.

    A municipality spokesperson said the number of immigrants in the park had increased every week. “There is no supervision of them. This is dangerous. The central government has to consider the local wisdom when they decide to accommodate immigrants,” he said.

    Recently the Immigration Office arrested several male immigrants suspected of soliciting themselves.

    Britain, Hungary, Germany ? – it’s Indonesia.
