The ‘green’ energy sector relies on your tax dollars

The next time some politician, bureaucrat, academic or activist tries to tell you there is a market for alternative energy (wind, solar, biomass, etc.), remember that without massive taxpayer subsidies there would be almost no wind or solar power, or electricity plants run on burning woodchips.

Because we need two Liberal parties…

Millennials, boomers meet as Conservative Party-crashers

The 160-plus voters crowded into a Toronto barroom last Tuesday would seem at first to be ripe and easy pickings for the Conservative Party of Canada.

The group included longtime Liberals and New Democrats who now seethe under the much-larger-than-promised deficits of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and want to test out a more right-wing politics. There were millennials who have voted left but are now aghast at the far-left intolerance they see dominating debate on university campuses.

But here’s the catch: These people gathered not to praise the CPC but to question it and perhaps even try to tear it in two.

I wish I could write this off as a CBC wish dream but given the “leadership” displayed by the Conservative party it’s entirely plausible.

How much will Wynne’s next budget cost Ontarians?

Congenital liar

You have to wonder how much of our money Premier Kathleen Wynne is willing to spend to win re-election next year.

By my calculations, the cost of Wynne’s Thursday budget speech to Ontario taxpayers was $9.3 billion, or $422.7 million per page of Finance Minister Charles Sousa’s 22-page effort.

Given that, who knows how much it will cost taxpayers next April, considering that will be Wynne’s “pre-election” budget, shortly before the June, 2018 vote?

America Is Losing the Cyber Information War

We are hamstrung by a myriad of reasons, to include lack of accountability and oversight, bureaucracy, resulting in insufficient levels of resourcing and an inability to absorb cutting-edge information and analytic tools, and access to highly skilled personnel,” Lumpkin said.

At the same time, Lumpkin said America’s enemies are increasing their capabilities and investment.

“This, while our adversaries are increasing their investment in the information environment, will not be constrained by ethics, the law, or even the truth,” he said.


A community divided

Rooted in a very public dispute over the place of religious practice in public schools, disagreement on the fundamental essence of ‘Canadian’ identity and the virtue of tolerance threatens to boil over in Peel.

Last month, a meeting to discuss the matter devolved into chaos when protesters shouted anti-Muslim remarks and tore up a copy of the Koran. Later, an inflammatory video posted to YouTube offered a cash reward for a recording of Muslim students using hate speech in Friday prayers.

To the school board, the debate is over. They’ve moved on to other topics at their meetings. But protesters say they’ll be back to picket the next board meeting and the one after that.


Paris Terror Attacker ‘Not Ashamed’, Gets Fan Mail in Prison, ‘Women Express Love, Desire to Carry His Child’

Donald Trump Gives the Media an Aneurysm at the NRA Convention

“Only one candidate in the General Election came to speak to you, and that candidate is now the President of the United States, standing before you again. (Applause.) I have a feeling that in the next election you’re going to be swamped with candidates, but you’re not going to be wasting your time. You’ll have plenty of those Democrats coming over and you’re going to say, no, sir, no thank you — no, ma’am. Perhaps ma’am. It may be Pocahontas, remember that. (Laughter and applause.) And she is not big for the NRA, that I can tell you.”

The Ugly Truth About Justin Trudeau


Snowflakes at UK universities want to ban whooping, clapping and cheering

Students who whoop, cheer and clap should face “consequences” because they are excluding deaf people, delegates at the National Union of Students conference said.

Audience members were repeatedly warned that they must cease whooping to express support for a speaker, because it has a “serious impact” on the accessibility of the conference.


Bill Nye Used To Think Chromosomes Determine Gender

Bill Nye the Science Guy has the word “Science” in his very name, which is how you know he really likes science and is an expert on science. Do you have “Science” in your name? Then maybe don’t talk so much.

But that doesn’t mean Nye can’t make mistakes. That’s part of science! Here’s a really big mistake he made 20 years ago.


Holy BBQ! Someone at Yale has a sense of humor!

I don’t know what’s more shocking to me. That Yale has Republicans or that someone at Yale has a sense of humor.

Who knew?

The guy who tweeted this out was hard-pressed to find the funny.

But I find it all manner of hilarious.

Islam Is As Islam Does

Publilius Syrus wrote long ago that “there are some remedies worse than the disease.” We could say as much about most of the Western world’s erroneous ideas about the religion of Islam. Chief among them is the notion that Islam is good and the terrorism committed by Muslims is tangential from Islam – a transmogrification of Islam proper. The remedy for this terrorism, the theory goes, is to “deradicalize” those Muslims who have taken the plunge into the dark waters of Islamic terrorism, or better yet, prevent those Muslims considering taking this plunge by sheltering them from the dangers of “radicalization.” The consequences of these imprudent and sciolistic estimations is now catching up to the Western world, a world that at one time believed our freedoms and our unhindered way of life immune from the egregious cultures and violent sectarianism to which Islam is innately connected in other, far away reaches of the planet.

Richard Dreyfuss On Free Speech At College: “Political Correctness Taken To A Nightmarish Point Of View”

Actor Richard Dreyfuss appeared on Tucker Carlson’s FOX News show Friday night to talk about his passion of American civics and political correctness on campus. The Academy Award-winning actor Dreyfuss explained the importance of teaching civics, something he said that has not been taught in American schools since 1970. The U.S. Department of Education was established in 1979.

I am absolutely stunned.

The Pentagon has agreed to formally review an anti-terror training program taught to special forces by a private contractor for material deemed offensive to Islam and Muslims, even though the Muslim group that lodged a complaint against the allegedly “Islamophobic” program has been accused by the Justice Department of supporting terrorism and is currently banned from outreach activities by the FBI.

Bill Nye the Science Guy’s Science Lies: The “Climate Change March” Edition

By now, most people have probably seen some of the viral videos from Bill Nye’s new show – the cringe-worthy “Sex Junk” rap and the just plain disturbing “Ice Cream Cone Orgy” sketch – and you might think that’s the worst of it. But you’d be wrong.
