DiCaprio issues climate action call in new documentary

The Hollywood megastar, who won this year’s best actor Oscar for his role in “The Revenant”, takes viewers around the world to meet experts and politicians in order to reveal the scale of the problem, its effects and the paths towards solutions.

As the inter-governmental Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rises comes into force on November 4, the US actor calls on individuals to examine their own habits and use their vote wisely to tackle the issue.

“I didn’t want the film to scare people, or present them with statistics and facts that they already know, but to focus on what can and must be done immediately so that we can leave our planet a livable home for future generations,” the 41-year-old said.

“We are quickly running out of time,” said DiCaprio, who also co-produced the film.


Canada has consensus U.S. lacks on key issues

Looking back on the year since voters handed Justin Trudeau a majority mandate it is impossible to overstate the contrast between post-election Canada and the pre-election United States.

Much, of course, has already been said about Trudeau’s knack for connecting with people, his relative youth for a government leader, his enduring popularity at home and his rock star debut on the international scene.

But notwithstanding the stardust that sticks to the prime minister, the contrast is more than skin-deep. It is based on a high level of consensus that transcends party lines.

The Elite “Have No Idea” – Society Is Near The Breaking Point

What I find most surprising today is that the insiders and the elite have no idea what is percolating just beneath the surface. Okay, maybe their arrogance actually produces its own fog, so it should not come as a surprise that they are blinded. They do not look at the calendar, which, if one really looks, says “1788” on it. Something is close. Very close. Society is near the breaking point.

My own experience is that Hillary’s so-called Deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are more informed, more self-reliant, and among other things, better armed. Regarding their arms, they are incredibly responsible, and not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed. The Deplorables have the longest fuse. It is, however, a fuse.

Alt Left, on the other hand, are the Neo Fascists and Neo Neocons. It is Alt Left that thinks Free Speech means THEIR speech only. It is Alt Left that needs ‘safe spaces’ and wants to enforce thought crime.


UN told EU to accept 1.3m more migrants every year or face population crisis

The radical report, titled ‘Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?’ advocates an influx of immigrants as a means of supporting an ageing population.

It projects that over the next 50 years the population of several western countries, including the UK, Germany, France and Italy, will steadily decline unless measures are taken to reverse the trend.

Penned in 2001, the report has resurfaced in the wake of the migrant crisis sweeping Europe.

The Rigged Debates

After three decades of political atrocities perpetrated against Republicans it is clear that the allegedly neutral Commission on Presidential Debates is irredeemably corrupt.

No one knows this better than GOP candidate Donald Trump who has been abused and undermined by the commission’s corrupt practices and unfair policies in both debates so far. It is no coincidence that the commission itself is filled with Hillary Clinton supporters and anti-Trump Republicans.


Quebecers march for $15 minimum wage

The message was clear: protesters argue Quebec’s $10.75 minimum wage is borderline poverty and it needs to change.

“It’s a question of respect for the workers,” said Dominique Daigneault, spokesperson for the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN).

“To recognize what they’re worth and to recognize that a worker has a right to live above the poverty level when he or she are working full time.”

DEFCON 3: US nuclear attack warning ‘upgraded to level 3’ as Moscow prepares for war

We have gone from DEFCON 5 to DEFCON 3. Bombers ready to take off in 15 minutes, missiles on launch warning. And the American people are going to vote for this …. again. Have we sunk so low and been rendered so stupid?

Remember the sweet, safer days of George W. After smashing and bashing him, the left has delivered us here. Everyday it’s some new horror. And what is every news network reporting on? Trump’s libido, of course.

    “We are quickly running out of time” says DiCrapio.

    The Hollywood Reporter said Friday that a rainforest charity, the Bruno Manser Fund, has “offered DiCaprio an ultimatum” and asked that he give up his title as a UN Messenger of Peace for Climate Change, which he has been since 2014.

    DiCaprio’s foundation is alleged to have received donated money through the Malaysian 1MDB fund that’s being investigated by the US Department of Justice for $1 billion in laundered funds.

    DiCaprio’s also alleged to have received money for his film, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” through a production company that’s mixed up in the scandal. The Manser Fund wants DiCaprio’s foundation to return any money donated via 1MDB.

    “If DiCaprio is unwilling to come clean, we ask him to step down as UN Messenger for Peace . . . because he simply lacks the credibility for such an important role,” said Manser Fund director Lukas Straumann, according to THR.

    Members of the Bruno Manser Fund charity were stopped from entering a screening of the eco doc after protesting against DiCaprio’s alleged links to a major corruption scandal.

    At the European premiere of the star’s environmental documentary Before the Flood in London on Saturday night, two execs from a rainforest charity were barred entry to the film by security guards working at the Odeon cinema in Leicester Square.

    Lukas Straumann, the executive director of the Bruno Manser Funds charity, which fights against deforestation in Malaysia, alongside the organization’s campaign manager Johanna Michel, were both stopped from entering the theater, despite having tickets. The two had previously unfurled a large banner on barriers outside the cinema that called on DiCaprio to return money he allegedly received connected to a multi-billion dollar corruption scandal in Malaysia.

    “This is outrageous and unheard of as we had done nothing apart from exerting our right to the freedom of opinion in a public space,” said Straumann.

    A top bundler for President Barack Obama and now Hillary Clinton previously entered into a joint venture agreement with a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund accused of embezzling more than $3 billion dollars internationally.

    The troubles surrounding 1Malaysian Development Berhad (1MDB), a state investment fund created by the Malaysian government to promote economic development in the country, has garnered increased headlines in recent days after it was discovered that actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation is linked to the foreign entity.

    DiCaprio was slated to host a $33,400-a-head fundraiser at his Hollywood Hills home Tuesday for Hillary Clinton but backed out last minute, citing a scheduling conflict. The fundraiser was moved to the home of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. The Clinton campaign denied the change of venue had anything to do with DiCaprio’s foundation being tied to the embezzlement scheme, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

      Malaysia has been governed nonstop since independence by the Corrupt Crazy Muslims Party who kept things on a fairly even keel. Until that is, they ordered up a big batch of specialty steel from Europe which somehow eventually wound up in the Dumpsterstan Atomic Weapons Program even though they swore up and down that would never happen. Anyway, the Even Crazier Muslims Party is stalking them and looking for its chance.

    The Toronto Star continues its Trudeau is wonderful themed weekend. The Sunday edition is basically a Liberal Party advertising effort, with multiple pages on how great little Justin is. Fake journalist Paul Wells has a large story on how innovative and brilliant Turdeau is, and the Star even has graphs on how all Canadians support Turdeau sending troops to Africa to be killed so he gets that security seat. Among the many stories on the great leader, is a story on how we need to raise taxes in Toronto in a big way, and a special edition on Syrian culture at the Toronto muslim propaganda museum. Yep, the elites don’t control the media in Sunny Ways Canada.

    • k2

      Syrian culture? What’s that? Certainly not music, dance, painting or sculpting, since all of those things are haram under forward-looking islam. Maybe it’s honor killing, or niqab fashion (we have them in 3 colors – black, blacker and blackest).

        It is diversity according to Don Connolly (Nova Scotia CBC radio announcer) and his cohorts.

        • H

          To state the obvious, diversity in and of itself is neither a good nor bad thing. It is the type of diversity that counts, surely.

          Women no longer being able to walk safely alone at night in major Canadian cities; gays being threatened and attacked; people being afraid to speak freely or criticize a specific ideology; the weakest members of our societies, children, seniors, etc., being preyed upon – these changes represent our new diversity, no doubt, but whether they are actually good things, improvements to our society is another question.

      That propagandist Chantal Hebert is delusional and disconnected from the public if she really thinks that Canada is some mono-culture of consensus behind Justin Trudeau and his “knack for connecting with people”. Humbug.

      The only connecting Turdeau makes me want to do is to connect him to the guillotine. As for his policies that she claims to be wonderful and grand: I oppose them with every fiber of my being. If there is ever a breakdown in society I hope that the first to be hanged by the mob will be the media scumbags at the Toronto Star, followed by Trudeau and his crooked cronies.

    If we raise min wage to $15 then a yearly salary for a full time worker would be $30,000 that’s equal or more then many people who send years in school make.

    • Hello robot workforce.

      • simus1

        Indeed. What would comfort a venture capitalist investing big bucks in the food service industry’s robotic revolution more than a $15/hr min wage baseline from which all other higher paid workers will be leveraged?

        • I saw this happen on a much smaller scale in the late 70s when the minimum wage was bumped from $3.50 to $3.85. New workers were beaten because they were getting 35 cents more per hour, which translates to $14 per week before taxes. The actual bring home pay increase was probably 9-10 dollars.

          Just wait until new workers are suddenly making $10,000 more per year compared to experienced employees. S is going to HTF.
