Something is fishy about USS Fitzgerald story we are getting from the media

Under no circumstances should a US Navy vessel possibly be damaged by a container ship at sea. Multiple systems exist to prevent this. Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder.

The USS Fitzgerald, an anti-ballistic missile destroyer that was part of the USS Ronald Reagan carrier strike group, will no longer be ready to defend the carrier and other ships from missile attacks launched from North Korea, should push come to shove in the current confrontation with the rogue regime on the threshold of the capability to attack New York, Los Angeles, and our power grid with nuclear missiles. This is an incident that could affect the outcome of a nuclear confrontation of historic moment.

LGBTQ petition demands permanent ‘rainbow crosswalks’ in cities across the country

Activists are urging local lawmakers to create the crosswalks through the use of petitions. Currently, one of the cities targeted is Chicago. A petition is now circulating there that has garnered more than 4,000 signatures. According to the petition’s text, “Some cities, like San Francisco, have made LGBTQ people feel more at home by creating permanent rainbow crosswalks to honor the LGBTQ community. … This is one small thing that could be done to signal to one of the most marginalized communities in the country that we are here for them, we see them, and we support them.”

Emergency workers bracing for Canada 150 bash in Ottawa

Be alert but not alarmed, police are urging Canadians who will congregate under the Peace Tower next month for Canada 150 celebrations — a massive public gathering for which intelligence agencies and emergency teams have spent months preparing.

Facebook Suspends Priest After Post About Islamic Jihad

Facebook may be failing to keep up with terrorists who use the social media platform to incite, enlist, and organize would-be killers, but it’s Johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to Catholic priests who share politically incorrect thoughts about Islam.

Canada’s relationship with Coca-Cola on its 150th

One of the best stories heard about Coca-Cola’s relationship to Canada is when then company president Robert Woodruff visited the country in the middle of a bitter 1930s winter – in Moose Jaw, Sask., no less.

And what did he see? A group of hearty Canucks chugging back bottles of ice-cold Coke.

Migrants Still Pouring Into Europe, Only Now They Are Mainly Coming From Africa

The flow of migrants from Libya to Turkey has hit unprecedented rates even as immigration officials have dramatically reduced the flow from Turkey into Greece, the head of the EU’s border agency told AFP.

BLM’s bullying tactics solve nothing

Reason is progressively being displaced by feelings, usually hurt or otherwise aggrieved ones.

Such was the case this week when Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporters appeared before the Toronto Police Services board advocating an end to the city’s School Resource Officer (SRO) program, which places 36 police officers in 75 public and Catholic schools.

The Source Of Leftist Intolerance

When I am come face-to-face with injustice and falsehood, my blood rises. It just happened with a post I found on Facebook (referring to yesterday’s shooting attack in the ball park):

“Unfortunately the right is already generalizing the blame to left-wing hate and pattern of hostility. Given the level of hatred and hostility the right has routinely expressed toward the left (or anyone who disagrees with them), this is outrageous.”

This is what psychologists call a projection, defined as the unconscious transfer of one’s own desires or emotions to another person.

What ISIS Really Wants

The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

Editorial: Beer tax hikes driving us all to drink

Beer taxes are up – in Alberta WAY up. And if the federal Liberals get their way, beer taxes will keep going up automatically, year after year, until some future government has the guts to put an end to the annual increases.
