Banning Plastic Straws May Harm the Disabled

On Monday, Starbucks joined a growing list of companies in pledging to phase out the use of plastic straws (by 2020). Many other companies — and even cities like Seattle, Wash., and Vancouver, B.C. — have banned plastic straws, widely seen as a fairly easy way to minimize harm to the environment. These bans will make life harder for the disabled, however.

Many disabled people with diseases like muscular dystrophy find it increasingly difficult to lift cups to their mouths. Plastic straws enable them to drink without what would be a herculean effort. There may not be a fitting substitute.


Daily Beast Uncovers Devious Papist Plot to Destroy America: The Federalist Society

Kudos to The Daily Beast and reporter Jay Michaelson for uncovering a deep conspiracy to change America into a theocracy by placing Catholic extremists into the Supreme Court.

Yes, that’s actually the gist of “The Secrets of Leonard Leo, the Man Behind Trump’s Supreme Court Pick.” The alternate headline is even more laughably overwrought: “The Secretive Puppetmaster Behind Trump’s Supreme Court.” This is not a story filed under “Opinion,” by the way, so it’s evidently a verifiable fact that a shadowy puppetmaster controls Trump’s Supreme Court.


Canada wins if the globe warms but we must be ready

“Why can’t Al Gore be right?” asked my friend as we suffered another bitter Canadian winter.

Intolerable Januaries aside, global warming alarmists suggest we should be happy if global warming doesn’t occur. But that may not be the case, especially for Canadians.


Signature in the Cell and Intelligent Design

A question that never ceases to fascinate is that of how life originated, and how and why it has progressed as it seems to have. The official story and de rigueur explanation is that that life came about through spontaneous generation from seawater. Believing this is the mark of an Advanced Person, whether one has the slightest knowledge of the matter. In academia researchers have been fired and careers ruined for questioning it. If you doubt that scientists can be ideological herd animals, as petty, intolerant, vindictive, and backstabbing as professors, read Heretic, by the PhD biotechnologist and biochemist Matti Leisola, who fell on the wrong side of the herd. Ths establishment’s continuing effort to stamp out heresy looks increasingly like a protracted desperatoon.


Quebec blocks asylum seekers from public daycare network, alarming advocates

Asylum seekers are no longer eligible to put their children in subsidized daycare in Quebec, making it difficult for single parents to get off welfare and into the workforce while waiting for their refugee claim to be heard, advocates say.

The Quebec government sent out a notice to early childhood education centres (CPEs) this spring, instructing them not to take in children whose parents are awaiting a refugee hearing.

Former Vatican Bank chief: Authors of New World Order demographic collapse influencing the Vatican

ROME, July 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — The demographic collapse of the West in recent decades was planned in order to create the necessary conditions to usher in a New World Order, and the authors of this collapse are now influencing the Vatican at the highest levels, the former president of the Vatican bank has said.

Speaking at the first international conference of the John Paul II academy for human life and the family, Italian economist and banker Ettore Gotti Tedeschi said efforts to decrease the world’s population by globalist elites have set in motion a series of predictable and intended economic, geo-political, and social catastrophes meant to “persuade” people around the world to accept a global “political vision” that would eliminate national sovereignty and institute “gnostic environmentalism” as its “universal religion.”

Stolen documents shed new light on Iran weapons technology: reports

New details on stolen Iranian nuclear documents obtained by Israeli spies earlier this year shed light on Tehran’s nuclear ambitions and show that Iran more than two decades ago had assembled the materials it needed to produce a nuclear bomb, according to multiple media reports.

The details expanded on those provided by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu provided in April, first in a private briefing with President Trump and later in an open presentation. 

The information came from a trove of documents stolen from a storage facility in Tehran by agents for the Israeli by agency Mossad. Journalists for The New York Timesthe Washington Post and others were invited by the Israeli government to view key documents obtained in the raid.

LEVY: Elementary school teacher would ‘feel safer as a prison guard’

Most days over the past year, Brookhaven public school teacher Shawn Goldman felt like he was a prison warden.

Only at his Black Creek Dr.-Lawrence Ave.-area public school — nicknamed Millhaven by staff — the inmates have been running the asylum while teachers stood by helplessly, rendered defenseless by the Toronto District School board’s (TDSB) lax discipline policies and complete denial about what’s truly happening in the trenches.

Diversity is our strength.

Trudeau’s got it wrong about Canada’s obligations to illegal crossers

Prior to his first meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ontario Premier Doug Ford laid all the blame on the Trudeau government for the upsurge of migrants illegally crossing into Quebec from the U.S., then landing in Toronto and now straining Toronto’s resources.

After the meeting, Trudeau’s response to Ford was typical Trudeau: patronizing, condescending, clueless and totally out of touch.
