My Endorsement for President of the United States
I’ll start by reminding readers that my politics don’t align with any of the candidates. My interest in the race has been limited to Trump’s extraordinary persuasion skills. But lately Hillary Clinton has moved into the persuasion game – and away from boring facts and policies – with great success. Let’s talk about that.
At Alaska state track meet, a transgender athlete makes her mark
In what is believed to be a first for Alaska, a transgender athlete competed in an individual event at a high school championship Friday at the state track and field meet at Dimond Alumni Field in Anchorage.
The Haines Borough School District policy, as cited by the Chilkat Valley News, allows Wangyot’s participation in girls sports: “For the purposes of gender identification for interscholastic activities, the district will consider the gender identity based on the student’s consistent declaration of gender identity, their actions, attitude, dress and mannerisms.”
“The history of Islam was completely different from what we were taught at school”
There is a concerted effort to whitewash the bloody history of jihad and mislead people about the history of Islam in general. Take a small example: the Sphinx’s nose. It was destroyed not by Napoleon’s troops in target practice (as goes the common story), but by the Muslim precursors of the Islamic State.
This Lady Completely Loses Control After Her EBT Food Stamps Card Is Declined
While we understand that Electronic Benefits Transfer cards, unemployment and other social support mechanisms are necessary for those who may have temporarily come upon hard times in an economic environment wrought with fraud and machinations that have left hard working Americans in dire straits, the fact is that millions upon millions of people feel entitled to the benefits they receive from the taxpayer and have made sitting on the couch, smoking weed, and getting paid a career.
The only thing I question is the word ‘Lady’.
The Red Guards Are Green
The media have given the misleading impression that the policies of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a self-declared socialist, are radically different than those of President Obama or Hillary Clinton. In reality, they all propose to use government power to control the economy by either confiscating the assets of private firms or running them out of business.
Technically, this may be fascism, rather than socialism. But the totalitarian nature of what is taking place is unprecedented in American history. America is becoming a socialist state that not only determines the fate of private industry, but attempts to control what people think and read about important public policy issues.
Doctors Without Borders tells non-Muslim staff in refugee camps to observe Ramadan
Médecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders says that it offers “medical aid where it is needed most. Independent. Neutral. Impartial.” Yet clearly when it comes to Muslim observance of Ramadan, it is not independent, neutral, or impartial. It is asking doctors, who are overwhelmingly non-Muslim Europeans, to change their behavior to conform to Islamic sensibilities while in the refugee camps.
The principle is always and everywhere reinforced: in Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to suit Muslim sensibilities. And in non-Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to suit Muslim sensibilities.
Or they might kill us.
British Renewables Chief: “England is not Windy Enough”
Hugh McNeal, who joined RenewableUK two months ago from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, insisted the industry could make the case for more onshore turbines in some parts of the UK, despite the withdrawal of subsidies.
But he said this would “almost certainly” not be in England, as the wind speeds were not high enough to make the projects economically viable without subsidy.
A hardly spontaneous protest
Make no mistake — these supposed anti-Trump riots are not organic nor are they natural; they are the result of leftist organizing using paid stooges. Fox News reported in March a Craigslist ad posted by Bernie Sanders supporters offering $15 an hour to protest at a Trump rally in Wisconsin. They would also provide shuttle bus transport, parking if you needed it and ready-made signs.
When confronted with the fact that the organizers of these melees are Bernie Sanders supporters, and representatives from Democrat-allied groups, like La Raza and MoveOn.org, the Democratic party establishment denies, denies, denies. They then condemn the violence with one hand, while their allies perpetuate it.
Swiss Army readies 2000 Soldiers For Expected Arrival Of 80,000 Migrants
Some 2,000 Swiss Army personnel are going through training to deal with a refugee influx expected this summer, Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Ukrainian mission’s Chief Observer Flavien Schaller at the Russian Gukovo and Donetsk checkpoints said on Monday.
The number of refugees expected to arrive in Switzerland may come to some 80,000, he added, praising the Rostov regional government’s efforts at accommodating Ukrainian refugees.
Trudeau on Ramadan: “Cultural diversity is our greatest strength and source of pride”
“Let us take the time to recognize, and show gratitude for, the invaluable contributions of our Muslim communities that enrich our national fabric each and every day. Canada’s cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths and sources of pride.”
