BLM flag flying alongside American flag at UVM
The University of Vermont’s Burlington campus is flying a Black Lives Matter flag alongside both the American and state flags.
Several students from the school took to social media to express their support for the move, with some saying the school is “winning for this” and another noting that since the school is supportive of the movement, “we should be too.”
One local news outlet is reporting that the flag is being sponsored by the school’s Student Government Association (SGA), whose president called the move a way to “show symbolic support for our community.”
Mainstream media desperate to hide Muslim faith of attackers
When you have a “48-hour reign of terror” journalists usually tell you about the suspect – except when he’s Muslim.
Reporters have been going out of their way since Monday to hide that New York bombing suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami is Muslim.
Monday, all three broadcast networks buried that fact deep in their series of stories about the attacks. All three used the same backhanded way of mentioning the Islamic connection by discussing his family’s lawsuit over alleged discrimination.
Then there was the Minnesota stabbing spree over the weekend, committed by Muslim Dahir Ahmed Adan, who was killed after stabbing 10 people in a mall.
Both attacks were reportedly committed by Muslims not born in the United States. But viewers were left to read between the lines of the reports to figure all that out.
Law Prof Says There is Already Enough Evidence To Impeach Donald Trump If He Beats Hillary
Donald Trump has not even been elected, but one law professor is convinced there is already enough evidence to impeach him if he wins on November 8. University of Utah Law Professor Christopher Lewis Peterson penned a 23-page article analyzing why it would be proper for Congress to impeach Trump if he’s elected. He believes that Trump has engaged in fraud and racketeering which meets the standards under Article II of the United States Constitution which reserves impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Socialism Fails Again: Venezuelan Hospitals Keep Babies in Cardboard Boxes
The health care crisis in Venezuela has reached a shocking new low. Mesa de la Unidad Democratica, a political party in opposition to the socialist regime currently in power, released photos online showing newborn babies being kept in cardboard boxes, due to a lack of incubators.
The images are now being investigated, with Venezuelan Social Security Institute President Carlos Rotondaro responding to the allegations with images of incubators in a hospital.
World Bank Chief: Sweden Should Create Independent Migrant State Where Laws Don’t Apply
Sweden could solve their migrant problem by creating a new state-within-a-state where national laws don’t apply and sending thousands of migrants and so-called refugees there, the incoming chief economist of the influential World Bank has said.
Paul Romer, director of New York University’s Stern School of Business Urbanisation Project, made the remarks about his unusual approach to Sweden’s migrant crisis this week in an interview with the national newspaper Dagens Nyhter. Suggesting the zone could model itself on British Hong Kong, the senior economist said it could bring enormous benefit at no cost to the taxpayer.
Well, no cost other than religious persecution, enslavement, and genocide.
Indigenous street names in Toronto get noticed and made ‘official’
It started out with stickers installed over street signs in Toronto, Canada.
Printed on those stickers were indigenous names, either for the streets themselves or the area the streets run through. For three years, members of the Ogimaa Mikana project posted these informal reminders of what the First Nation peoples called these places long ago.
They created billboards, street signs and plaques to make the city’s indigenous history and residents more visible. None of it was officially sanctioned.
“There has been a very long history in Canada of erasing indigenous presence and I think this is especially true in the city,” said Hayden King, co-founder of Ogimaa Mikana and a member of the Anishinaabe tribe.
What to do if your Yahoo account was hacked

Wynne wants new rules for bottled water industry after Nestle outbids town
The bottled water industry in Ontario is facing renewed government scrutiny after a small township was outbid by multinational giant Nestle in its attempt to purchase a well to secure water supply for its growing community.
Premier Kathleen Wynne said Friday her government will look for ways to put community needs ahead of bottled water corporations.
“As we look at the water bottling industry, that has to be a question because we’re talking about what we could argue is our most precious resource,” she said.
Audit identifies $2.1M in ‘unexplained payments’ to Alexander First Nation former chief and staff
A “forensic investigation” has identified $2.1 million in “unexplained payments” to a former chief of the Alexander First Nation and seven administrative staff, according to a leaked internal document.
The document says about half of the unexplained amounts, totalling more than $1 million, were paid to former chief Herbert Arcand and current tribal chief administrator Alphonse Arcand.
But both of them dismiss the report’s findings, arguing all the proper documents weren’t submitted to the auditors.
Mispronouncing Foreign Names is a Microaggression
Today we are dealing with generation who grew up receiving participation trophies because the purpose of sports was to feel good about ones self, instead of kicking the butt of the other team. This generation elected leaders who believe it really possible to negotiate with terrorists, or lead from behind. And those adults raised children who cannot bear to hear an opinion that differs with theirs, who go to schools that teach political conformity instead of the art of debate, that provide safe spaces where students can escape differing opinions and bask in the warmth of group think. In short we have become a nation of wussies, where seldom is heard a discouraging word because discouraging words may make people sad.
