Blast injures tourists on bus near Giza pyramids in Egypt

An explosion targeting a tourist bus has injured at least 16 people near the Grand Egyptian Museum, next to the pyramids in Giza, security sources say.

Most of those hurt are foreign tourists, Reuters news agency reports. A device went off close to the museum fence as the bus was passing.

It is the second incident affecting tourists in Egypt in six months.


Gun grabbing Trudeau Liberals have not ruled out federal order to implement potential handgun ban

OTTAWA – Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Bill Blair said implementing a national handgun ban is still on the table, and would not rule out issuing a federal order instead of legislation given the limited window of Parliamentary time.

In an interview on CTV’s Question Period, Blair was asked whether the handgun ban that the government had consulted on was still on the table, and if it’s possible it’ll be brought forward before the next election, or as part of the Liberal re-election campaign. He was also asked if it was something he was pushing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on, and if an Order in Council, essentially an order recommended by the executive branch, could be a way that a ban is brought forward.


Daughter of Jihadi John victim vows to go to Syria to find her dead father’s body as ex-cellmate reveals how sick ISIS ‘Beatles’ gang made prisoners fight each other in WWE-style Royal Rumble

The daughter of one of the victims of ISIS killer Jihadi John has vowed to go to Syria to retrieve her father’s body.

Aid worker David Haines was kidnapped, tortured and beheaded after spending 18 months as a captive in Syria.

The Yorkshire-born former RAF engineer appeared in a sickening ISIS murder video, kneeling in the desert in an orange jumpsuit before being beheaded by Jihadi John, real name Mohammed Emwazi, in September 2014.


Revamped citizenship guide still a work in progress as election nears

Oh great…

…The previous Conservative government tilted the guide’s wording toward military history and rights and the responsibilities of citizenship, while the Liberal government appears to be inclined to explain Indigenous reconciliation and multiculturalism, Suleman said.

“Given that we have an election coming up, there’s probably a calculus about whether it’s worth releasing a new guide, which inevitably will make some people happy and other people unhappy,” he said.


FUREY: The 2019 election is looking like 1972 all over again

Trudeau wins a majority government thanks to his personal popularity, as regular Canadians take to the streets to pose for photographs with him, swooning over his style.

This is a description of Justin Trudeau and the 2015 election, right? Sure, but the same words equally apply to the original Trudeaumania – the 1968 election that Pierre Elliott Trudeau won.


Snapchat’s New Gender-Swap Filter Is Causing Problems For Social Justice Warriors

Snapchat’s new gender-swap feature has taken over the Internet, with users marveling over how the app transforms them into a member of the opposite sex. But social justice warriors concerned about the plight of actual gender-swappers are firing back, accusing Snapchat both of minimizing what its like to transition and of buying into the notion of the “gender binary.”


GOLDSTEIN: Trudeau’s ‘hidden agenda’ exposed

As it turns out, the Canadian political leader with a “hidden agenda” is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, not Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer.

Because while Trudeau was boasting about his “sunny ways” of governing, and falsely accusing Scheer of being sympathetic to white supremacists, the Liberal government he presided over was, in the unforgettable words of Marie Henein — Vice-Admiral Mark Norman’s lawyer — attempting to put a finger on the scales of justice.


USGA investigates after golf scores ‘erroneously’ recorded for Trump

The U.S. Golf Association (USGA) says it is looking into unflattering golf scores that were “erroneously” recorded for President Trump this week.

Scores of 101, 100, 108 and 102 were posted Friday under the president’s name on his USGA-run handicap system even though the president did not play golf that day, Golfweek reported.


Australia switches off

Today I had a couple of reports that this site was not accessible in Australia. They started in early morning, so I suspect that something happened overnight. We know that the majority of internet service providers in both Australia and New Zealand had started a month ago, described here at as “ISPs in AU and NZ start censoring the internet without legal precedent”.


‘Full steam ahead’ on trade deal now that tariffs are lifted, Freeland says

The tariff deal lifts the levies the U.S. imposed last June citing national security — 25 per cent on imports of steel and 10 per cent on aluminum — as well as Canada’s retaliatory tariffs on steel, aluminum and other products.

Think Trudeau’s going to say something stupid like he did after the G7?

What a crystal meth crisis in an Indigenous community says about mental health and climate change

“Prior to 2015, we had a very minimal crystal methamphetamine problem, and in fact, it was flying below everybody’s radar so it wasn’t really a concern,” Bird told Global News over the phone from the Montreal Lake medical centre.

He said that many people were first introduced to the drug while living temporarily in larger cities, such as Regina and Prince Albert.

Big Election Upset In Australia

Australia held a national election yesterday which all of the polls predicted for weeks would be won handily by the Labour Party. The ruling Liberal Party (which is the conservative party in Australian politics because they still understand the historic meaning of liberalism) has been in office for over a decade, and had struggled as ruling parties often do when they grow stale in office. In fact leadership fights within the Liberal Party had left it in chaos heading into the election campaign. The pollsters and the media called it an “unlosable election” for Labour.

World Leader’s Ignorance About Climate Change Continues Despite Simple, Obvious Evidence.

Until Trump, and very obviously with his exception, weak, ignorant, pandering, people lead the western nations. They want leadership positions but with no intention of doing the job, or, for that matter, any talent to do it.

We are a long way from Toynbee’s “last product of civilization.” Worse, we are moving further away every day. What can you say about America, supposedly the most advanced civilization in the world, with a regular TV program about 600-pound people in prime time? Is that filling leisure intelligently? What can you conclude about western leaders listening to and, worse, heeding Swedish teenager, Greta Thuneberg about climate change who claims she can see carbon dioxide in the air? This skill may be because she is a 16-year old child who, regrettably, has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Asperger’s Syndrome. We know this because her mother, who needs for child abuse, told us so in the family book ‘Scenes from the heart. Our life for the climate.’ Historically, it was a child who pointed out that the emperor had no clothes. Now the ill-informed, used and abused, children are pointing out the emperor is wearing a cloak of green.

Giga-hurts radio: Terrorists build Wi-Fi bombs to dodge cops’ cellphone jammers

Terrorists have been caught strapping Wi-Fi-activated backup triggers to bombs in Indonesia, police claimed this week.

The explosives were discovered in a raid earlier this month, and included a switching mechanism that enabled them to be detonated using a signal sent via Wi-Fi if the main trigger, which uses a SIM card and waits for a mobile phone message to detonate, was blocked by radio-frequency jammers.

This Liberal MP wants to give out tickets for “online hate”

During a Justice Committee meeting on “online hate”, Liberal MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith suggested that the government should create a new judicial body to dish out tickets and warnings for those found to be guilty of harassment online.

“The blunt instrument of imprisoning someone, putting them through a rigorous criminal trial, is probably not the right answer for enforcing rules against hate speech online in every instance,” said Erskine-Smith.


Venezuela’s socialist regime triggers a collapse worse than any nation not at war -NYT

In an amazing piece that forgot to mention that little ‘s’ word called ‘socialism,’ the New York Times nevertheless has a stunning report about what economists are saying about Venezuela’s economic collapse experience under socialism.

Read with caution, because even though we all already know that Venezuela’s a dump, this report (and its horrifying pictures) could make you sick

Venezuela – worthless currency
