The Media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome

The liberal media doesn’t like the President. For that matter some in the conservative media don’t like the President either…yes, that means our friends at National Review and The Weekly Standard and doubtless a few others.

There’s plenty of room for honest disagreement.

But it is all too obvious that the Trump candidacy and now the Trump presidency has produced what can only be called Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) among Trump critics both in and out of the media. As noted here previously, Time magazine devoted its “Person of the Year” cover in 2008 and 2016 to the new presidents-elect. Obama was handsomely and heroically portrayed. Donald Trump? He was seen scowling at the camera and labeled the “President of the Divided States of America.” No Trump phobia there!

Female Islamic State Militants Use Children as Human Shields in Last Ditch Defense of Mosul

Female Islamic State (ISIS) fighters in Iraq are using their children as human shields in a last ditch defense of Mosul as the U.S.-led coalition has all but liberated the city.

“The women are fighting with their children right beside them,” Lt. Gen. Sami al-Aridi told the Associated Press. “It’s making us hesitant to use air strikes, to advance. If it weren’t for this we could be finished in just a few hours.”

Harper Releases Statement After Trudeau Government Lies About Khadr Payout

Not only did Justin Trudeau lie to Canadians about the Khadr deal – saying the “process” was “ongoing” even after the payment was secretly made – but he actually sent out his stooges to try and blame former Prime Minister Stephen Harper for the payment.

Of course, that’s not the case. Everything that happened with Khadr’s imprisonment took place under Liberal governments. And Trudeau was not forced to pay Khadr. Trudeau chose to make that disgusting decision, and he not only gave Khadr $10.5 million, but did so in such a way that Tabitha Speer and Layne Morris couldn’t get any of the money.

Now, Stephen Harper has released a statement pushing back against the despicable lies of the Trudeau government.

Read the emails Evergreen State’s president was sent that denounce him as a foolish coward

Evergreen State College’s President George Bridges fielded many angry emails that basically called him a coward and a fool after the school erupted in a flurry of racial protests and the president largely sided with campus agitators, documents recently obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request show.

“You are enabling a truly reprehensible ideology to consume your campus and if you don’t stop it soon there is very little chance the college will survive. This type of appeasement is dangerous and will not be good for anyone, especially for the students who believe that these threats and intimidation will win the day,” Vicki H. wrote to Bridges.

Putin Says Trump ‘Asked A Lot Of Questions’ About Election Hacking

Russian president Vladimir Putin said Saturday that President Trump “asked a lot of questions” about election meddling during their lengthy meeting at the G-20 summit on Friday.

Speaking at a press conference on the sidelines of the summit, which is being held in Hamburg, Germany, Putin also praised Trump and said that he believes that the U.S. and Russia are on a path to repair their frayed relationship.

“The Trump you see on TV is very different from Trump the real person,” Putin told reporters. “He’s very specific, he’s able to understand what you tell him, he analyzes your words pretty quickly, and he’s able to respond. He answers your questions or he responds to whatever may come up in the course of discussion.”

Douglas Todd: Buying fake jobs to immigrate

Canadian employers are creating fake jobs so would-be immigrants can quickly get citizenship.

Immigration “consultants” often arrange the illicit deals, which frequently result in Canadian business owners being paid to fabricate non-existent jobs.

Other times, the migrants perform actual work, while themselves handing cash to the employer under the table to top up their own salary.

The employers, for their part, devise fraudulent pay stubs so the foreign nationals can “prove” to immigration officials they have needed skills to go to the front of the queue to become a permanent resident of Canada.

Dems File Emergency Lawsuit To Stop Trump From Protecting America’s Elections

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) has filed an emergency lawsuit to stop President Trump’s Commission on voter fraud investigation. The center has led a serious push for privacy in the Digital Age, but this move smacks of partisan politics.

In May, Trump issued an executive order establishing the commission. Its job is to “promote fair and honest elections.” However, that doesn’t bode well for democratic electorates. As many as two-thirds of U.S. states have baulked at the request sent out by Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

The young British Pakistani women prepared to marry their COUSINS in order to keep their families happy – but risk giving birth to disabled children

It may be controversial but it is legal to marry your cousin in the UK.

And for British Pakistanis the practise is common with an estimated 55 percent of them doing so.

For some Muslim girls it is an arrangement they agree to in order to keep their families happy, as Bradford-born Hiba Maroof discovered in BBC Three documentary ‘Should I Marry My Cousin’.

Impossible Foods CEO: we want to eliminate all meat from human diets

It’s the veggie burger that bleeds. When eaten, it tastes and feels remarkably similar in your mouth to a burger made from animal meat.

After a blaze of publicity, the US-based company behind it, Impossible Foods, is scaling up production. A new facility in California will open before the end of the year with the ability to produce four million burgers a month.

Impossible Foods founder Pat Brown explains the impact he hopes to have on our health, the future of the livestock industry and the natural environment.

Canadians less than enthusiastic about gender-neutral identification: Poll

Should there be gender-neutral identification available on government-issued documents?

According to a new poll, Canadians are divided down the middle on this contemporary subject, with roughly half (49%) in favour of gender-neutral identification for those who want it, and the other half (51%) opposed.

That changes, however, if the government document in question is a birth certificate.

      Genius and very well done with the expressions of Trump’s face selected perfectly.

    • Brilliant!

      It’s absolutely unacceptable that they have binary designation of restrooms

    • He may be joking. He may not be.

      • andycanuck

        [Re-read Sean’s surname again, OK, slowly. 🙂 ]

        • Oh, I’m aware of his last name but does one really think that Trudeau WOULDN’T lock himself in a bathroom stall?

      • It’s a satire account. It’s hilarious to watch the left froth over it.

        • I’m familiar with the account.

          I’m sure, at one stage, Butts has had to cover up Trudeau’s getting lost in a round room and so forth. One can’t say that isn’t plausible.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        It’s a parody account “Spicier”.

        There’s one for Sarah Huckabee Sanders as well.

  • As a happy long-time veggie (almost vegan) I can assure you-all that life is good with such food. And good meat and cheese substitutes are available at an ever increasing rate. It is logical and humane.

      When I pass by the cattle farms on the way to work, I see the little calves romping through the field. First thought I think when I see them is that they’re so cute, but tasty too! MMMM! lol

      • Yes, the taste is undeniably good. I prefer not to preach. But imagine you’re a calf. Barely born, and taken from your mother (think of the mother’s feelings too), then taken to a place where calves are killed industrially, horrible, fully of blood. In the old days, when most folks were farmers, the killing was natural, people would kill a single animal that was almost part of their family and eat it. This was, to repeat, natural. But now meat is something you get in the supermarket, in slices, after mass killing. This is not natural.

        • Bla Bla

          lol Avi, I’m just pulling your leg.

          Even though I’m a meat eater, I have problems with farms that produce items such as veal (I know what they do to those poor critters there) or foi gras… I’m totally down for humane harvesting of animals for consumption (which is also why halal disgusts me) and despise anyone who abuses the animals anywhere along the supply chain for their own twisted needs.

        • Clausewitz

          And your opinion is fine. Just don’t walk all over my rights to have a nice steak BBQ on a fine July afternoon and we’ll all be happy.

      • Clausewitz

        Check out your mouth. There’s a reason why we have incisors. The left keeps telling us that nature is always right.

  • Very pleased that Trump and Putin have met at last, and hoping good things will come of it. One thing that intrigues me is that nothing transpires, as far as I can tell, regarding North Korea. They must have discussed it, as it is surely the most important topic at this time.

      And yet they agree on so much.

  • Blacksmith

    ““The women are fighting with their children right beside them,” Lt. Gen.

    use air strikes, to advance. If it weren’t for this we could be finished

    The muslims are proving that they need to be eradicated, yes there will be some innocents dead but until this hate creed is eradicated they will continue to appear again and again.

    • tom_billesley

      These are the children the women have been raising to be throat slitters and suicide bombers?

      • Blacksmith

        You misunderstand me, I meant that there would be some innocent people in the areas infested with these pisslamist, not that these women or their progeny were innocent. Muslim=guilty of hate.

  • tom_billesley

    Swedish police have a new priority: fighting the “hatred” against journalists.
    Journalists are now included with other groups that are victims of hate crime.

  • Hard Little Machine

    If you get a chance watch the movie “American Pastoral”. Or read the book. But in either case, as fiction it frames well the insane fury of young people in the 1960’s anti war movement and the Weather Underground. Wealthy spoiled ingrates. We’re seeing a repeat of that now. And like then it will eventually blow over.

    • Justin St.Denis

      But how much damage will it incur in the meantime? The damage must be contained. If that means blowing away a few SJWs, then so be it. Sedition is never pretty and always has consequences.

      • Hard Little Machine

        We’ve survived worse

        • Alain

          Depends on what one means by survive, because we are now living in the damage done by the same kind of people in the 60s.

    • Slickfoot

      Thanks I found the complete movie on You tube.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Harper is being savaged on Twitter it appears. Seems the liberals don’t understand the concept of child soldiers being forced to fight for an established, government, and recognized, country’s, army. Al Queda belongs to no one country. Khadr was no child soldier.

    • Harper should never have let Khadr be repatriated.

      Having said that, Trudeau is the sh– who can own this.

      • andycanuck

        Repatriated to a treason trial by court-martial for being under arms against Her Majesty’s forces and those of her allies.

    • andycanuck

      And even then the UN cut-off point is 14 years as well and not 15 years like Khadr.

      And also child soldiers as you describe but being forced to fight for guerrilla groups and not proper, uniformed combatants of states who are Convention signatories themselves.

    Alibin Kurti, a candidate for Kosovo prime minister, claims that a new government in Pristina will form an army “in partnership with Albania and Croatia”.
    A new muslim army in Europe. Thank Bill Clinton and Tony Blair.

      That’s going to go so well.
