vermontblmflagBLM 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.”

jihad-against-usaMainstream 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.

trumpLaw 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.”

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.

stockholm-640x480World 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.

spadina-rd-copyIndigenous 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.

yahooWhat to do if your Yahoo account was hacked

The latest Yahoo hack is a doozy you shouldn’t ignore.

The company said on Thursday at least 500 million user accounts were affected by a massive data breach. The hack happened in 2014, when “state-sponsored actor” stole account information, including names, emails, passwords, telephone numbers and answers to some security questions.

So what should you do if you have a Yahoo account?

First and foremost, you’ll want to change your password immediately. All Yahoo account holders should also change their security questions and answers.

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.

herbert-arcandAudit 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.

precious-snowflakesMispronouncing 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.

    What’s that?

    • Yahoo provides default email services to a number of ISPs – similar to MS bundling IE with Windows – and many use it without knowing it. My ISP is Frontier and I have a address (among many others) but the service is handled by Yahoo.

        Are Rogers accounts affected do you know?

        • Rogers uses Yahoo! but there doesn’t seem to be a list of affected accounts. Yahoo! says it is in the process of notifying affected users. If any sort of list appears we will post it.

          The hack occurred in 2014 so the fact that it’s just coming to light doesn’t give me a lot of faith that Yahoo!’s is acting in its customer’s best interests.

          “The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers. The ongoing investigation suggests that stolen information did not include unprotected passwords, payment card data, or bank account information; payment card data and bank account information are not stored in the system that the investigation has found to be affected. Based on the ongoing investigation, Yahoo believes
          that information associated with at least 500 million user accounts was stolen and the investigation has found no evidence that the state-sponsored actor is currently in Yahoo’s network. Yahoo is working closely with law enforcement on this matter.”

            Danger is that people often use the same password for different purposes, and security questions if the same as used by other web sites e.g. mother’s maiden name or town of birth, would allow password to be reset.

    Re: Indigenous street names in Toronto get noticed and made ‘official’

    That reminds me of Adwe Street (which had existed under that name for about a century) that was named after a long-time city worker’s family name had who had donated the land to the city which become the large playing field part of and across from Brockton High School in Toronto but because of the demands of one minority, the street was renamed Croatia Street.

    It doesn’t look right to fly that flag next to the Vermont and US flags.
    Perhaps they’d fly it alongside that other black flag, the one with the white squiggles.

    Today’s Saturday Toronto Star is the whiny indian edition. Lots of stories about indians, including a rant from Heather(I hate Canada)Mallick, who complains about old Canadian people, or old stock as she calls them, who spent their lives beating up indian children.

      Heather Malice grew up amongst members of the plainspoken Kapuskasian tribe and apparently still bears the ritual scars to prove it.

    The UK Labour Party continues its march into the political wilderness, re-electing Jeremy Corbyn as leader.
    Also, Larry, the 82-year-old brother of failed US presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is standing for the Green Party in a bid for the UK parliamentary seat vacated by David Cameron.
