WAPO Pushes Fake News That Thomas Jefferson Held WH Iftar Dinner to ‘Celebrate Ramadan’

The establishment media became upset this weekend after President Donald Trump canceled the “White House Muslim Iftar Dinner tradition started by Thomas Jefferson.” But the media is wrong in every respect. Thomas Jefferson never held any Iftar dinner and only three out of 45 presidents ever hosted one, so there is no such “tradition” to cancel.

Amy B. Wang of the Washington Post led the pack with this nonsense that Thomas Jefferson held the “first Iftar dinner” with a June 24 piece entitled, “Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House.”

A ‘very credible’ new study on Seattle’s $15 minimum wage has bad news for liberals

The city is gradually increasing the hourly minimum to $15 over several years. Already, though, some employers have not been able to afford the increased minimums. They’ve cut their payrolls, putting off new hiring, reducing hours or letting their workers go, the study found.

The costs to low-wage workers in Seattle outweighed the benefits by a ratio of three to one, according to the study, conducted by a group of economists at the University of Washington who were commissioned by the city. The study, published as a working paper Monday by the National Bureau of Economic Research, has not yet been peer reviewed.

Poll: Majority of Canadians would consider voting for a Sikh, transgender or unilingual prime minister

Is Canada ready for a prime minister who covers his or her head for religious reasons?

Just barely, says a new poll published today by the Angus Reid Institute.

The poll is likely to become an immediate point of discussion in the NDP leadership race where Jagmeet Singh, a Sikh who wears a turban, is considered among the leaders.

Chicago ‘Dyke March’ Bans Jewish Pride Flags: ‘They Made People Feel Unsafe’

Three people carrying Jewish Pride flags were asked to leave the annual Chicago Dyke March on Saturday.

The Chicago-based LGBTQ newspaper Windy City Times quoted a Dyke March collective member as saying the rainbow flag with the Star of David in the middle “made people feel unsafe,” and that the march was “pro-Palestinian” and “anti-Zionist.”

‘Environmental inequity’ caused by ‘colonialism,’ course claims

Environmental justice is a “timely and highly relevant” topic, Hoover asserts in the course description, claiming that “around the world, the brunt of environmental inequality has disproportionately impacted developing countries, low-income communities, and people of color.”

The class will explore issues including toxic chemical exposure and climate change, followed by an examination of their causes, which Hoover says include “regulatory failure, discrimination, colonialism, and the commodification of land and labor.”

Black Lives Matter Protesters Angry That Police Marched In Pride Parade

The city’s parade organizers originally chose to exclude police following the acquittal of Jeronimo Yanez — the police officer who shot Castile in 2016 — but decided to re-invite them Friday, according to Star Tribune. Over 30 officers marched in the parade, including Janeé Harteau, Minneapolis’s first lesbian police chief, who led the effort to have officers reinstated.

Oregon: Saudi who ran over, killed 15-year old girl skips bail week before trial

Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah, 21, was due to stand trial in Portland last week but vanished nine days before the start date.

He was on bail on a single count of manslaughter for allegedly killing 15-year-old Fallon Smart by running her over as she crossed the road in August 2016.

Noorah, who was studying on a scholarship at Portland Community College, was driving on a suspended license at the time.

Portland mayor demands to know why cops detained Antifa activists after being pelted with urine, feces

Trump supporters in Portland, Ore., and Antifa members. Police formed a barrier between the two groups to prevent escalation of an already very intense situation.

The Antifa thugs began pelting the police, in riot gear, with balloons filled with feces and urine, as well rocks and pieces of brick. That would seem to be more than ample justification for arrests and charges for rioting and/or assaulting police officers.

Not in Portland, where liberalism is king. Keep in mind, these criminal anarchists were not actually arrested. They were simply detained and allowed to go free within an hour.

Trump Blasts Obama On Russia: “He Didn’t ‘Choke’…He Expected Clinton To Win So He Colluded Or Obstructed”

Former President Obama, political royalty on the left and a media darling who even sent a “thrill up the leg” of Chris Matthews, has drawn a rather surprising amount of public criticism of late over his handling of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Everyone from Congressional democrats to CNN is suddenly curious why Obama didn’t do more?

‘Before tragedy strikes’: Liberals launch centre to prevent home-grown terrorism

A special adviser will be named in the coming months to oversee the local outreach and research projects funded through the Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence.

The centre will have dedicated staff, but will be located within the existing Public Safety Canada space.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Canada must become a world leader in understanding and dealing with radicalization that leads to violence in order to retain its national character as an open, diverse society that is also safe and secure.

Trying to tame a snake.

    Liberals will staff it from the ranks of Anti-Fa, of course.

      The Liberal Party approach to everything. Hire more civil servants to sit on their asses, and waste money.

    Saudi bail skipper
    Why accept partial bail payment from an embassy or consulate when there’s no way to enforce it? It’s impossible to get diplomatic staff to pay parking fines, so how easy will it be to collect the remaining 90% of the bail money?

    If you haven’t seen this yet.

    Project Veritas caught the producer of CNN admitting the whole Russia story is “Bullshit” that they are pushing for ratings.

    • ontario john

      I blame Russian spies and global warming.

    • andycanuck

      And even that’s a lie as they never did anything similar to Obama “for ratings”.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        He talks about that in the video, he says it would have worked in the reverse with their liberal viewers.

        CNN is feeding their base what they want to see, Trump being attacked for anything and everything.

    And of course the Toronto Star this morning, repeats the fake news that an Islamic dinner is a White House tradition. They also have a story on how wonderful Black Lives Matter is. The National Post has an interesting story on how many Mennonites are returning to Canada from Mexico. They left many years ago, because the government was going to force secular education on them. They are being given a hard time by the government in their efforts to return. Yes, we don’t need hard working farmers and skilled people here in Sunny Ways Canada. We only welcome muslim terrorists who live in welfare housing and collect government cheques, and most importantly vote Liberal.

      The Mennonites are not exactly blameless in the game of advocating for large scale immigration of various third world tribes. I could respect them much more if it were not so.

      I suggest, John, that you really do not know what you are talking about in this case. I’ve a nephew who manages a road repair team in Alberta, and he has TONS of stories about the migrant Mennonite workers from Mexico which he has been assigned over the years. These are not the Mennonites of St. Jacob’s, Ontario. Do you remember the story about the Alberta town that passed a bylaw making an assembly of three or more people on the town’s streets illegal? Well, that bylaw was enacted specifically to prevent groups of Mennonite males in from Mexico from harassing local women and children, urinating on the streets, carousing and drunken behaviour (we are all sinners, it seems). My nephew informs me that, if he had a choice, he would not have these people of his team. They are hardworking, he admits, but the disciplinary issues he has to deal with are almost entirely based in his migrant Mexican Mennonite workers. Also, he tells me, they lie. A lot. All the time…
