NY Times Slams Trump Because Illegal Immigrants Are Staying Home

Most of the people who will read this post will be happy that illegal immigrants are staying home….unless of course they are on the left. This latest NY Times hit piece is an indication of how utterly distorted the Left’s worldview has become.

An article appearing in today’s New York Times has emblazoned across its top a photograph of a forlorn-looking man, sitting on the edge of a bed, his eyes downcast. Standing across the room from him is a young girl who looks sympathetically at the man — her father — as if to say, “It’s OK, Papa, maybe next year.”

Liberals Are in Trouble – and They Know It

This is due to a great crisis inside the left worldwide. It is no longer a movement of ideas. Liberals have no new ideas because they have adopted such an extreme relativism that they no longer strongly believe in anything. Everything is fluid and undefined. In this way, they have undermined their own foundation of logic and authority that is essential to the functioning of any political movement.

As a result, the old days of rational debate are over. The left exploits emotions and resentments, but can no longer be held to the logic of ideas.

No forgiveness for forgetting: Albertans still angry over Trudeau omission

Anger continues to bubble in Alberta after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared to forget the province in his Canada 150 speech on Parliament Hill.

Trudeau failed to name Alberta in a speech that otherwise mentioned all the provinces and territories, but returned to the stage shortly after to apologize for the oversight.

“Let me just say I’m a little embarrassed. I got excited somewhere over the Rockies,” he told the crowd on Parliament Hill Saturday. “Alberta, I love you.”

The prime minister also tweeted his apologies for the oversight. But it was too little, too late for many of his critics in Alberta.

Some condemned his oversight as rude, ridiculous and an outright insult. Several individuals took the omission as a politically-motived slight, as Alberta traditionally skews Conservative, not Liberal.

University that de-Christianized chapel has second thoughts after massive backlash

East Central University in Oklahoma learned the hard way to consult its community before taking orders from a well-funded national anti-religion pressure group.

President Katricia Pierson said she is “immediately withdrawing” the removal of Christian items including Latin crosses and Bibles from a campus chapel, following public outrage that the public university let Americans United for Separation of Church and State bully it with a litigation threat.

Canada urged to suspend refugee agreement with U.S.

Refugee and human rights advocates are renewing calls for Canada to suspend an agreement it has with the United States governing the treatment of refugee claimants.

Under the Safe Third Country Agreement between the two countries refugee claimants must see asylum in the first safe country they arrive in. That means that refugee claimants coming to Canada from the U.S. through official border crossings are turned back. 

Study: More Men Hired in Gender-Blind Job Application Process

The trial, which was an effort to push more women in senior position jobs, revealed that removing the gender from a candidate’s application does not help boost gender equality in hiring. The trial also revealed that adding a male name to a candidate’s application made them 3.2 percent less likely to get the job while adding a female name made it 2.9 percent more likely that the candidate would be hired.

Trump Tweets ‘Make America Great Again’ Choral Performance For Independence Day, Triggers Libs

Americans celebrate Independence Day on Tuesday, and to mark the occasion President Donald Trump tweeted a partisan video clip of a church choir singing a song based on his campaign slogan.

“Make America great again / Lift the torch of freedom all across the land / Step into the future joining hand in hand / And make America great again,” sings the choir of the First Baptist Church, a megachurch in Dallas, Texas.

Muslim Woman Claims Ex-Muslims Just Want To Cash In On Apostasy

In a really awful attempt at humor, actress Mariam Sobh posted a video recently explaining why ex-Muslims speak out against the faith: They just want cash.

Not because they no longer believe in God.

Not because they think Islam in particular has tremendous potential for harm when people take the holy texts literally.

Not because they want other doubting Muslims to know there’s a safe place for them if they ever become “apostates.”

Nope. It’s only because they want to get in on some of that sweet ex-Muslim money.

Proud Boys & Alt-Knights Try To Invade San Diego’s Impeachment March

A small group of antifascist and anti-racist activists decided to attend the Impeachment March in San Diego. We attended with the message that the impeachment of Trump will not solve the problem of racism, fascism, capitalism, sexism or trans-phobia. We do not want Pence – a crusading Christian intent on dismantling human rights, or another neo-liberal candidate who speaks highly of human rights yet bombs civilians and robs us blind in the name of the free market. People need to wake up and realize the two party system is broken and doesn’t benefit anybody except the ruling class. To be blunt, we were heavily outnumbered the whole time. We did not expect there to be these numbers of Proud Boys and other Alt-Knights, including “Last Revolution Media” an alt-right media source in California.

You’re going to have to read this twice – there’s too much whining and too many insults to be absorbed in one reading. Also, they admit they’re not interested in just impeaching Trump and removing him from office – Pence is unacceptable too.

Canada at 150, With Satisfaction if not Excitement

Canada celebrated its 150th birthday as a nation on July 1.

Ho hum.

Not just “ho hum” from south of the border where United States citizens barely notice their northern neighbors unless they appear poised to disintegrate, as was the case associated with the 1995 Quebec referendum.

But also “ho hum” from Canadians who apparently believe a sesquicentennial isn’t that big a deal and are not getting excited. Despite massive advertising preparation and assorted and sundry projects projected to occur throughout the year associated with the commemoration, these activities seem to be noted in passing rather than embraced with delight—a large crowd in Ottawa notwithstanding.
