Trudeau’s popularity takes hit

The Justin Trudeau Liberals are now trailing the Conservatives slightly after delivering a widely unpopular budget this week, a Forum Research poll shows.

Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, president of Forum Research, said there were several items that drew a strong negative response in Thursday’s budget and that added up to a drop in popular support for the government.

The cancellation of a tax credit for public transit users, the end of Canada Savings Bonds and higher taxes on alcohol turned off many Canadians.


Google’s YouTube loses more advertisers over offensive videos

An advertising boycott of YouTube is broadening, a sign that big-spending companies doubt Google’s ability to prevent marketing campaigns from appearing alongside repugnant videos.

PepsiCo, Walmart Stores and Starbucks on Friday confirmed that they have also suspended their advertising on YouTube after the Wall Street Journal found Google’s automated programs placed their brands on five videos containing racist content. AT&T, Verizon, Johnson & Johnson, Volkswagen and several other companies pulled ads earlier this week.


Denmark stops contributions to women who prefer burqa or niqab over job

Denmark sends a clear message to Muslim women: If you refuse to take a job where you can not wear the burqa or the niqab, social benefits end.

Now Muslim women can no longer refuse to take a job in Denmark, with reference to religion. If the job requires that they do not wear the niqab or similar garment, there will be financial consequences if they refuse.


Philadelphia MAGA Rally Canceled As Masked #disruptmaga Anarchists Show Up With Smoke Bombs

MAGA marches have been organized across the country for Saturday, with most occurring without issues. The rally in Providence, RI was crashed by a marching band, black lives matter activists, and a handful of anarchists. The Providence anti-MAGA protesters have to far been peaceful, mostly focusing on making enough noise to drown out the MAGA crowd.

The scene in Philadelphia was much more dramatic. A #disruptmaga group had been talking for weeks on social media about crashing the MAGA rally in a way which suggested there would be violence.


Associated Press issues new guidance on sex, gender: ‘avoid’ referring to ‘both’ or ‘either’ sexes

In a Friday email to subscribers listing updated entries for its style manual, the Associated Press is urging journalists to avoid making references in news stories that suggest there are only two sexes in the human race.

The term “gender,” the AP Stylebook says, is “[n]ot synonymous with sex.”


Canadian military seeks Muslim recruits

The Canadian Forces want more Muslims among their ranks.

There are few Muslims in the Canadian military and that is something that Rear Admiral Tyrone Pile, who is in charge of recruiting, wants to change.

On Friday, Pile visited Ottawa Central Mosque in the city’s west end to invite Muslim youths to join up.

“The Canadian Armed Forces do not reflect the cultural diversity in this country and that’s a pity,” Pile told observers at the mosque.


Google and social media companies could be prosecuted if they show extremist videos

Ministers are considering a new law which would mean Google – which owns YouTube – and other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter can be prosecuted if they allow such videos to be disseminated.

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, made clear her displeasure at internet companies that publish extremist content on Friday, saying “the ball is in their court” over taking action.


Energy Star: The EPA-Owned Purveyor of Fake News

The ENERGY STAR brand is currently mandated for use by governments in the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, Switzerland, New Zealand, Taiwan and the European Union. The EPA claims their brand of certified ‘energy efficiency’ is producing over $23 Billion a year from energy-savings, which is more than the annual revenue from box office sales for the entire movie industry in America.


4-year-old boy brings bullet casing to preschool, gets suspended for 7 days. Yes, it gets worse.

On Tuesday afternoon, Jackson arrived at A Place 2 Grow to pick up Hunter, but she told KTVI-TV she instead “was met with a stone-faced teacher who said that my son had a shotgun bullet. I was horrified thinking, ‘Where could he have gotten this?’ ”

Jackson explained on Facebook that when she was “escorted to the office for a sit down,” she “was handed a tiny .22 empty brass casing. Not a ‘shotgun bullet.’ He found it on the ground, expelled from a .22 rifle over the weekend, while Hunter was target practicing with his police officer grandpa. He was so excited, and snuck it to school to show his friends. We had no idea about it.”

    “Canadian military seeks Muslim recruits”.

    That’s sure to save ISIS some money on military training.

    • tom_billesley

      Worry not: national security requires a stop to all military training in the armed forces. Diversity is all the strength that is required.

    • Watchman

      I believe it comes as a result of an evaluation of Canadian vs ISIS military competence, and that ISIS were found to be far behind the Canadian troops. Justine has asked the Department of National Defence to immediately institute a Affirmative Action plan to ensure that military equity is achieved in ISIS so that are not disadvantaged in comparison with Canadian troops. Justine believes that the ‘military proportionality’ requirement under international law means that Canada cannot use overwhelming force against ISIS, and that as ISIS weakens, so must the Canadian forces deployed against them weaken.

      Diversity is a strength, just not in our instance of this universe in the multiverse.

    • k2

      It hardly matters: I am pretty sure that I read that Justin made yet further cuts to the poor bleeding military; now you require a fairly powerful microscope to find any evidence of the armed forces’ existence in this country.

  • LairdKintyre

    Well that seizes it then. How is this folks? I had to engage Google 5 times before it registered the word “”Seize””. I want to run in the next election as a Conservative candidate. Hopefully with Kellie Leitch as my prospective PM. I can’t tolerate this BS any longer. I want to fight for you because I beleive in Canada. A nation , i am a poor
    iundeserving fool was raised in. What can I Say, I want the same for my children and I have 3.

    Associated Press is using this definition of “gender”.
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gender

    A reflection of one’s self-image as relating to sexual nature. There are, in general, three genders:
    1) Male
    2) Female
    3) Something you made up one day to feel speshul. E.g. “semiqueer-bi-spirit-shemale”. May use made-up pronouns such as “xe”, “ze”, “schlee”, “nflgsufgshuihousu”, etc. Anyone who finds this ridiculous is a bigot and is literally Hitler.

    Can you believe that Facebook doesn’t feature “transquasi-neutermale” in its gender selection?! This is making me sick. This is making it harder for me to achieve self-realization and be myself!

    • John Boy

      Or how about:
      1) Female
      2) Male
      3) Hermaphrodite
      4) Uncertain due to severe mental illness

        Can I be a “black helicopter”?

        • Watchman

          Sure, but you’ve got to get a tan and must be prepared to hover over militia houses at night. We’ll tell you how you must carry the the special forces guys … but that can wait.

    Feminist Trudeau is merely following the long history of the Liberal Party screwing the military. I see the same signs happening today, that happened when I served, when no money was spent on equipment, resulting in deaths or maiming of personnel from out of date crap. And the use of the forces for social experiments. Perhaps we will see members having to send their families to food banks again. Information from the National Defense itself states that people are leaving the Armed Forces in record numbers, and enrollment is way down. But the recent social warriors in government want to spend time and effort on recruiting muslims, trans gender, and handicapped recruits. And now the Liberals are putting our military staff at risk again by not buying any major military equipment till 2035.

  • ontario john

    The Sunday Toronto Star is excited about the growing popularity of dog and cat meat in the islamic paradise of Indonesia. Yes, while the population is busy persecuting Christians, they can go home to a nice bowl of doggie or kitten stew. Perhaps some of the millions of dollars that feminist Trudeau sends there, can be used for cook books. In other Star stories today, numerous pieces that Trump is Hitler, Trudeau is wonderful, governments need more money, blah, blah, blah.

  • Blacksmith

    “The Providence anti-MAGA protesters have to far been peaceful,”
    They actually have to say this don’t they. You don’t hear the same about the MAGA groups because it is not necessary.

    • tom_billesley

      European media would run with a headline like “arrests at far-right rally”, without bothering to report which group included those who were arrested.

  • Blacksmith

    “There are few Muslims in the Canadian military and that is something
    that Rear Admiral Tyrone Pile, who is in charge of recruiting, wants to
    change.”

    They don’t need your military, they have their own already at the mosque…..

    “Ontario allocates $47 million to support “Black children”

    That is almost 5 grand each. must be nice to be black. It would probably be best if they just gave them the cash but they won’t. I am sure there are lines of leftist social organizations out the door and around the block with puckered lips ready for the govt teat.

    • Justin St.Denis

      No one is asking how much of that $47 million will end up as “administrative costs” but you can be sure that a few million will end up lining some insiders’ pockets.

    • shasta

      “5 grand each”

      I thought there were a few more than 9400 blacks in Ontario.

      • Blacksmith

        Well their number was 10800, I wonder what the number of blm adherents there are in Ontario?

    • Literally Hitler

      Sounds like racial discrimination to me. Why is this government benevolence based on colour rather than need?

      • Observer

        Because the Liberals don’t want Black Lives Matter coming to their election offices next year to tear them up.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Good one! 😉

    I had no idea where the philosophy for “A Place to Grow” in Troy, Illinois came from so, out of being fair, I did 5 minutes research on the Web. They are a member of N.A.R.E.A. which was started in 2002 and is a subsidiary of an organization based in Reggia Emilia, Italy, started by the late psychologist, Loris Malaguzzi. Their philosophy, (and I understand this is Wiki so it may not be 100% accurate) is:

    (From the Wikipedia page)

    The city Reggio Emilia in Italy is recognized worldwide for its innovative approach to education: its name comes from the city itself. The keyword of this method is foster education, from the tender age, promoting the best possible integration among children’s languages which, as Loris Malaguzzi said, are a hundred or more.[5] In this approach, there is a belief that children have rights and should be given opportunities to develop their potential. Children are believed “knowledge bearers”, so they are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas about everything they could meet or do during the day.

    The Reggio Emilia philosophy is based upon the following set of principles:

    Children must have some control over the direction of their learning;
    Children must be able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, and observing;
    Children have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world that children must be allowed to explore;
    Children must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves.
    The Reggio Emilia approach to teaching young children puts the natural development of children as well as the close relationships that they share with their environment at the center of its philosophy. The foundation of the Reggio Emilia approach lies in its unique view of the child. In this approach, there is a belief that children have rights and should be given opportunities to develop their potential. “Influenced by this belief, the child is beheld as beautiful, powerful, competent, creative, curious, and full of potential and ambitious desires.”[6] The child is also viewed as being an active constructor of knowledge. Rather than being seen as the target of instruction, children are seen as having the active role of an apprentice.[7] This role also extends to that of a researcher. Much of the instruction at Reggio Emilia schools takes place in the form of projects where they have opportunities to explore, observe, hypothesize, question, and discuss to clarify their understanding.[8] Children are also viewed as social beings and a focus is made on the child in relation to other children, the family, the teachers, and the community rather than on each child in isolation.[9]

    Educators have to make children aware that respect for everyone else is important because everyone is a “subjective agency ” while existing as part of a group.

    (end of Wiki)

    So why, oh why, if the child is to help direct their own inquiry, if the child is perceived as having some rights with respect to their own inquiry, was the approach to a 0.22 caliber shell casing so ham-handed? The liberal mindset suffers from a trait common to all men – the hunger to control others, a desire to power. I feel very sorry for the little boy. He is not going to forget their reaction for a very long time.

  • canminuteman

    The budget was unpopular because people were expecting more free stuff. Canada savings bonds were cancelled because no one buys them any more, so I doubt that was really a cause. If Trudeau loses the next election, and I suspect he won’t unless he gets fat or goes bald, he will be replaced with an NDP pm. Don’t get your hopes up, they will be crushed. We are circling the drain and nothing is going to save us

  • xavier

    What Canada Saving bonds are killed off?
    How long do I have before they become worthless paper? I need to know when to cash it in.

      It’s time to cash in all your bonds and equities before the crash.

      Canada Savings Bongs aren’t real bonds anyways, but with how much Trudope is spending I wonder what the real inflation rate is (not the government version) versus what you are getting on your CSB’s?

      It’s time to stock up on gold, silver, toilet paper, whiskey and ammo!
