As you probably know, earlier this month police came to my home at 4am and arrested me, basically for reporting the news.
Now I can talk more freely about what happened.
More importantly, I can tell you about the men whose court case I was reporting on.
A student group at the University of Chicago has published a list of almost 50 demands, including the creation of six separate racially-themed academic departments and race-specific student housing.
The coalition of student groups called “UChicago United” has urged the university to create a “Race and Ethnic Studies Department,” a “Black Studies Academic Department,” an “African Studies Department,” a “Caribbean Studies Department,” an “Asian American Studies Program,” in addition to a “Center for African and Caribbean Studies” and a “Latinx Affairs Office”.
The latest census numbers released by Statistics Canada did not provide a rosy picture of what lies ahead in Nova Scotia and the rest of Atlantic Canada.
It showed that between 2011 and 2016 the Atlantic provinces experienced the largest drop in the country in the proportion of people aged 15-64. While the percentage of people aged 65 and older was 12.3 per cent in Alberta, it was almost 20 per cent in Atlantic Canada.
If anyone wasn’t attuned the fact already, these numbers tell us how important it is to attract more immigrants to this region and to retain them.
I heard Lil’ Potato was bringing a few back from Britain. Like about 23,000.
Outraged high school students told their school board this week that a comedic campaign video made by the class president was anti-Muslim hate speech, and one student urged administrators to “strip away constitutional protection” for his classmate.
The controversy began when a 17-year-old student, who is unnamed in media accounts, ran on the tongue-in-cheek promise that if he was elected as San Ramon Valley High School’s student body president, he’d protect his classmate from terrorists.
The survey found that a whopping 65 percent of voters do not trust the media, and concur with President Trump that the likes of CNN and the Washington Post push false information.
The authors of the study also noted that it seems to be the media’s obsession with attacking Trump over anything and everything, even though most topics are non-issues, that is driving the backlash.
Trump will be impeached: Clinton returns to her university to launch all-out attack on president
Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee’s impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about.
‘We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,’ the defeated presidential candidate said – as members of the crowd at the liberal campus erupted into cheers.
Never in my life before have I actually been afraid for myself and my family simply for giving a political opinion.
This isn’t the way it’s supposed to work in the United States. Elections bring new forces in, but there are things those victors can’t do. It’s this system that maintains the peace and insures a free flow of ideas. This is the system that has prevented tyranny since our founding.
But in 2017, liberals at every level have decided that those rules (be they constitutional or local) just don’t apply to them. This has terrifying implications. Calls for violence against those who disagree with the liberal narrative are becoming all too common, and not just in backwater channels of the internet.
The 2016 US presidential campaign pitched a reality TV star, businessman and political outsider (Trump) against an established politician, former Secretary of State and First Lady (Clinton). As the first female candidate nominated by a major political party to seek the US Presidency, Clinton used her campaign speeches as a platform to put forward her vision for a better America based upon raising middle class incomes, education, affordable healthcare and confronting the “think power, think male” bias leading to the underrepresentation of women in politics. In so doing, the “voice” of her campaign speeches appeared to stand in marked contrast to the direct, tough, uncompromising rhetoric of Donald Trump, who promulgated an “America First” agenda which placed emphasis on renegotiating trade deals, pursuing energy independence, reducing taxes and deregulation. And so, we ask: are there discernible gendered differences in the speeches of Hilary Rodham Clinton and Donald J. Trump? We examine 80 speeches delivered by each candidate between 19th July 2016 and 8th November 2016. Our findings identify some important distinctions.
From the “next, let’s sue because the weather was bad for my picnic today” department comes this study that shows just how crazy it’s become. I mean really, what’s next? Sue Exxon because a hailstorm damaged the roof of your house? Or sue the feds the because the Red River in North Dakota flooded in the springtime yet again, because that’s what it does? I would not be surprised if we see something like that this year. The idea that people can litigate action for a “stable climate” is as ludicrous as expecting the universe to revolve around the Earth, something egotistical yet ignorant humans once believed. Stable climate is nothing more than a fable. And, just where in the US Constitution does is say we have a right to stable weather or climate? Nowhere.
One in six Canadians believe Maxime Bernier would make the best prime minister, and more than one in four say Kellie Leitch would be the worst PM.
The survey, conducted earlier this week, comes days before the Conservative candidates and members gather in Toronto for the final leg of the year-long race. Speeches are scehduled Friday, and a winner will be announced Saturday.
Operation Inherent Resolve is the on-going campaign against ISIS ground forces in the Middle East. On top of providing friendly forces with additional ground support in the form of advise and assist teams comprised of American, British, and French Special Forces teams, OIR also flies daily sorties and fires thousands of artillery rounds to destroy Daesh stongholds.
