Toronto police investigate anti-LGBTQ graffiti

Graphic designer Daniel Malen and his husband Aaron Boros found the words “Toronto hates queers cuz your a biggot (sic)” spray-painted on their garage door.

“We can’t tell you how unsettling this is. Even though we’ve always felt blessed to live in an inclusive city such as Toronto — particularly with the way things have gone downhill in the United States under the Trump administration… — this is an awful reminder that Toronto and Canada is far from perfect,” Malen wrote in a post on Instagram.

SJW homoowner and lavender spray paint? It’s a hoax.

Despite leading in the polls for Round One, The Express reports that a monumental computer blunder could cost Marine Le Pen the French general election as 500,000 citizens living outside of France have the chance to vote twice.

French authorities confirmed they would not be investigating the potential electoral fraud until AFTER the election, when retrospective prosecution may take place.


Notes for a White Kid in University:An Introduction to the Blindingly Obvious

If you are a white student in college, you doubtless hear daily that white people are evil, the principal cause of everything wrong with the world. Whiteness is bad, white people are bad. We are to blame for everything.

If you believe this, you are being gamed. What you are being told is nonsense. If you have the intelligence and self-respect to think for yourself, ask:

“What have other races and ethnic groups accomplished in the world compared to what we white people have?”


Getting ready: Pentagon to protect electric grid from massive attack

Amid warnings that North Korea and Iran have plans to take out parts of the U.S. electric grid through a cyber attack or atmospheric nuclear blast, the Pentagon is taking steps to both protect the nation’s communications and power lifeline.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has charged BAE Systems to map a system that can detect a cyber attack and gin up an alternative communications network for military and civilian use if the grid is fried, according to Defense Systems, the online newsletter.


Here’s why Google’s costly “social justice” hiring effort backfired

After Google released data on the racial and gender makeup of their employees, social justice warriors pounced, pressuring them to make changes. Google went along with it claiming they wanted to open up dialogue and promote change, spending over $250K to do it.

But hiring quotas sacrifice merit and quality for political correctness and waste a lot of money on people that wouldn’t be as efficient as a qualified person.

Whatever happened to hiring the best person for the job?

Unsurprisingly, it looks like things have backfired on Google and they’re now being accused of paying women much lower salaries than men.


Marine Le Pen Hits Out At Pope After Call For Open Borders

In an interview with La Croix International, the leader of the Front National chided Pope Francis for asking “that states go against the interests of their own people by not placing conditions on the acceptance of significant numbers of migrants”.

The 48-year-old added that, in her view, the Argentine cleric’s pronouncements on immigration exceed his role as a religious leader.


MSNBC Fears Birds Won’t Be Able to Fly Over Trump’s Wall

MSNBC had “wildlife biologist” Jeff Corwin on Friday to claim Trump’s border wall could kill off a bunch of endangered species and even prevent birds from migrating.

This just might be the dumbest cable news segment of all time.


Roman Polanski Compares U.S. Court To Nazis Over Order Denying No Jail Time

“Mr. Polanski was as justified in fleeing this Court’s illegal conduct as he was to flee the Germans who invaded Poland,” starkly proclaims a new filing today by the Oscar winner’s lawyer. The blast against U.S. justice comes just over a week after a judge denied the fugitive director’s latest desire to be assured of no more jail time for the 1977 rape of a 13-year old girl if he returned to America.


Pro-Black Lives Matter assignment prompts concern at George Mason University

Earlier this semester, students were instructed to take an image from a graphic novel about a slave rebellion leader “that connects to a key issue in today’s culture where African Americans still face discrimination, inequality, prejudice, and worse: police brutality and death” and write an essay about it.

“Do you see a connection between what happens in the novel to today’s Black Lives Matter movement,” asked the essay prompt, assigned in English 302: Advanced Composition for Social Sciences.


Opposition slams Trudeau’s “shameful and unacceptable” deceit

During the Question Period at the House of Commons on April 11-12, 2017, opposition MPs blasted Prime Minister Trudeau over new revelations that his controversial New Year’s family vacation at a private Bahamas island belonging to Aga Khan, a Trudeau family friend and a billionaire spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims, cost the Canadian taxpayers $133,883 and not $127,187, as was originally estimated by the government.

Candice Bergen, MP for Portage-Lisgar and the Official Opposition House Leader, told the House Speaker that “at first the Prime Minister violated the rules by getting on Aga Khan’s private helicopter, then he misled Canadians by saying that was his only option, and today he is blaming the RCMP for that one”.
