Australian government unveils gun amnesty amid terror warnings

The justice minister Michael Keenan will on Friday confirm details of the amnesty, which is due to begin on 1 July.

“The fact [is] we’ve got a deteriorating national security environment,” Mr Keenan told ABC radio.

“We’ve got an environment where there has been five terrorists attacks on our soil and sadly in the vast majority of those cases it has been an illegal firearm that’s been used.”

Cars, knives, and wooden sticks are next.


2 Canadians wanted by U.S. police over brawl at Turkish ambassador’s D.C. residence

Mahmut Sami Ellialti and Ahmet Cengizham Dereci face charges of felony assault with significant bodily injury. Ellialti also faces a charge of felony aggravated assault.


Norwegian Officials Deny ‘No Go Zones’ in Migrant Suburb Despite Weeks of Arson, Attacks on Police

Oslo city representatives have blamed three weeks of arson and violence against police by “youths” in the migrant-dominated Norwegian suburb of Stovner on young people feeling “rootless and restless”.


President Trump Should Bypass Courts on the Travel Ban

There are legitimate debates about the limits of presidential authority in every administration. It’s fair to question whether any president, of any party, should be able to engage in military action without Congress because the Constitution grants the legislative branch the authority to declare war.

But there can be no doubt whatsoever that President Trump is acting within his legal authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act which grants him the authority to “suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants” for as long as he thinks it’s necessary. Obama made use of this power to temporarily halt Iraqi migration. So have other presidents in the past.

Trudeau’s refugee policy will have “long term and devastating consequences”

His promise to admit 25,000 refugees in two months was a disaster, as Trudeau was more concerned with fulfilling an election promise than properly screening migrants coming to Canada.

Amino Rashid, 24, and two former colleagues who are also Muslim, say they were dismissed after reporting two separate incidents, just days apart.

    If Zucker enforced the most fundamental ethical standards at CNN, he wouldn’t have to worry about hostility to his staff. If Trump supporters are going to live in fear, then let the CNN hate propagandists live in fear.

    Australian gun amnesty.
    In a “deteriorating national security environment” I’m sure they’d rush to give up a gun their grandfather brought back from the war, and depend on the government for protection.

    • canminuteman

      It’s pretty shocking to see the government admit there is a “deteriorating national security environment”.

      • Exile1981

        We all know who are the ones causing the deteroriation and its not the ones they are tagertting with this amnesty.

    • andycanuck

      And the clearest proof in the world that guns are just tools and that people kill, not guns is that only one group of people are using them as terrorists.

  • tom_billesley

    Redesigned rainbow ‘Pride flag’.
    Dangnamit, now we’ll have to repaint all those rainbow crosswalks.

    • andycanuck

      The guy leaving skidmarks on the one has already added the black stripes.
      See? He was just trying to keep up to date in the grievance sweepstakes.

      • Bla Bla

        Those poor knuckle dragging primitive socialists don’t remember their science class. Black is the absence of light, therefor, to put it on a rainbow is… well.. I guess the ‘new’ science. Weeee! We are quickly slipping back to the days of wacko-science courtesy of the Soviet Union (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysenkoism)

    It’s that woman again, desperately seeking relevance.

      I was wondering why they hadn’t been giving out the probable casualty list too but then, not being a leftist nutter, I figured they were waiting on physical proof of remains and understood that this would take some time to complete.

    Clearly this fire was the “will of Allah”.

  • ontario john

    You have to give it to Wynne and the Liberal Party, they sure can come up with creative ideas to pay off the public sector unions. The media is reporting that Wynne will give the union over 50 million dollars if they sign the tentative agreement, because the province abused their rights.

  • ontario john

    The Toronto Star is excited this morning about Ramadan celebrations in Toronto. They have a major story and photos on the fun time being held. Why they even have a participant saying its just like the Santa Claus parade. (yeah, if Santa wears a suicide vest and carries a machete.). And they are excited about the muslim call to prayer being held in city hall chambers as part of the celebration.

    • reidjr

      The Star has a double standard they lose it when there is any Easter or other holiday in a public building.

      • Sharkibark

        Yes – get rid of those horrible holiday trees that celebrate the racist red & green day!!!

  • Sharkibark

    Black is not a colour – it absorbs all colours and reflects none back to the eye. Brown is a composite colour, made of a mixture of the primary colours but is in the family of reds. White is in fact all colours – reflecting all colours of the visible light spectrum. And Liberals are the party of science.

    • Justin St.Denis

      The very same thoughts crossed my mind. Black is the “absence of colour”. In real life, it also seems to bespeak an absence of logic or reason.

  • Shebel

    I think that every where I go from now on – that I Will wear a huge Star on my Chest and a foot long CROSS on my back.
    Just to see—-if I offend any piece of shit.

      I have been verbally assaulted because some find the crucifix which I wear around my neck to be highly objectionable. Just last April in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, I had a middle-aged Canadian couple berate me on a beach because “…we really don’t need to be confronted with your bleeding Jesus every time we look around….” Seriously. I abruptly told them both to take a flying fuck at a rolling donut. Further, I challenged the (20 years younger than me) male person to DARE come within a yard of me over the upcoming ten days. “I am clearly capable of crushing you like a cockroach,” I pointed out as I looked him up-and-down. “I haven’t made beta-male paste in months, buddy. And I’m getting the urge. So watch yourself.” Turning to the wife, I added, “And don’t even come near my wife. She does NOT share my sense of restraint.” They kept their distance – a very BIG distance – for the duration of their stay.

      • Slickfoot

        “Beta male paste”… LMAO!

      • Bla Bla

        Excellent, standing down to them only makes them more belligerent and violent.

    Simpering fucks.

    Husky – they have had a ‘no hoody’ policy for nearly 20 years, ever since a welders helper caught a grinder up in it causing the gringer to pull into his face. Its a safety issue, a religious accomodation shouldn’t block safety rights.

    If a religion requires you too light incense, no one is going to let you do it in an oxygen enriched enviroment.

    These women were hired on contract for a specific job, they showed up to work and broke a safety rule. They should have been escorted off site.

    • Tooth&Claw

      They also appear to wear the same hijab day in and out …I don’t believe they get washed all that often, which to my eye becomes a vector for infection.

      • Exile1981

        We had an issue one year at our site with individuals with beards showing up at a very sour site and refusing on religious grounds to shave their beard. They were escorted off site and threatened to sue.

    There will never be enough colours or stripes on those flags to please all the whiners we have to suffer.

        Chartreusiens are defiantly feeling excluded. Can’t blame them.

    “The fact [is] we’ve got a deteriorating national security environment,”

    So we are going to disarm our citizens further. All for the children of course. Don’t question our motives or you will be labelled a racist and sent to the gula…. oops, I mean sensitivity training centers.

    • Editor

      “The fact [is] we’ve got a deteriorating national security environment,”

      Quick, do something so it looks we’re doing something!

      It’s called “security theater” I believe. Kind of like the TSA in the US.

      • Bla Bla

        Indeed, also known as Kabuki theater and the end result is the terrorists still win, while we lose more and more freedoms.

  • Clausewitz

    The 2 Canadians wanted by US authorities are not Canadians, they just have a Canadian passport. Justin’s kind of people.
