Why Can’t Justin Trudeau Be Our President? Here’s Why!

I should really stop asking myself what bit of lunacy is coming next from the left.

Last week, the pro cannabis, socialism is really cool, hipster rag sheet, Rolling Stone published an article with the headline, ‘Why can’t Justin Trudeau be our President?” The writer, Stephen Rodrick, called Trudeau, ‘the free world’s best hope.’

ABC News Says Hillary Lost So She Shouldn’t Be Investigated

The Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions this past week asking for an investigation of a number of Democrats including Hillary Clinton. ABC News says Hillary lost the election and, therefore, should not be investigated.

Scottish National Gallery Stands By Video Calling Whites ‘Inbred Spawn Soon To Die Out’

The video features a rapper staring at portraits of former Scottish Kings like James III and distinguished architects like Sir William Bruce and calling them “dead, random white dudes” and proclaiming “they are a gravestone that a dog pisses against.”

A University of Michigan instructor recently claimed that preschool classrooms are rife with “heteronormativity” that perpetuates “inequalities related to gender.”

‘It’s a start:’ Council approves $2M boost for 10 struggling arts groups

On Monday, council voted 13-2 in favour of dipping into the city’s rainy-day fund to give $2 million in bridge funding to help the 10 arts organizations stay afloat amid declining donations and corporate sponsorships.

Scandal: Australian Bureau of Meteorology caught erasing cold temperatures

Amazing, the power of the media. Suddenly, the Bureau of Meteorology needs to replace equipment and answer questions and set up an internal inquiry. But they’ve had weeks of warning. Lance Pidgeon and Jennifer Marohasy have been watching the automatic weather stations record very cold temperatures, and then astonished when those same readings either got entered into our national raw database as warmer, or simply disappeared. The BOM apparently has a filter set so that super cold temperatures need to be manually checked. Yet the filter is set so high, in Thredbo’s case, nearly five whole degrees warmer than temperatures already recorded.
