Young and Old Alike Reject Climate Change Hysteria as EU Parliament Reviews Skeptical Film

As climate catastrophe movies like “Geostorm” and Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Sequel” bomb at the box office, as reported by Fox News, Oct. 24, 2017, young and old reject climate change hype and are speaking out against damaging climate change policies, says Friends of Science Society.

Young, left-wing Dutch filmmaker Marijn Poels caused a stir in Europe for his film “The Uncertainty Has Settled,” which was screened Oct. 18, 2017 at the EU Parliament. Poels reported by email to Friends of Science that the screening was received by some 50 European Parliamentarians but none of the Greens were in attendance, illustrating the dogmatic nature of the issue. Poels’ film addresses his shocking realization that EU farmers are being reduced to farming wind for subsidies instead of food for people.

Musicians investing in terrorism insurance following Vegas attack

There’s been a high demand for terrorism insurance in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre — with artists from all music genres reportedly looking to invest in policies for their concerts.

“Now more than ever they are targets,” explained Steves Rodriguez, business manager for the all-girl pop group, Fifth Harmony.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter this week, he and other managers described how musicians were taking out terrorism insurance policies now — more than ever before — following the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival on Oct. 1.

WANTED: Margaret Wente’s Wimpy White-Bread Canada Of The Past

In a column about Jagmeet Singh, the recently elected leader of the federal NDP, Margaret Wente of the Globe and Mail remarked that “…it’s clear that he (Singh) is as much a son of Canada as anyone in the room — not the wimpy, white-bread Canada of our past, but the dashing, muscular Canada we long to be.”

“White-bread” is an ethnic slur directed at the one group in our society who are considered fair game to mock, ridicule and denigrate. That it can be uttered casually on the CBC or in Canada’s leading newspaper is indicative of the many double-standards that apply to racial categories. While no one would dare declare that a given neighbourhood or city was “too Brown,” “too White” or “too white-bread” is now a common place virtue-signal. It is a statement of support for the Diversity-is-our-Strength mantra.

Does Saudi robot citizen have more rights than women?

Sophia was such a hit she was immediately given Saudi citizenship in front of hundreds of delegates at the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh on 25 October.

But as pictures and videos of Sophia began circulating on social media many started to ask why a robot already seemed to have secured more rights than women in the country.

Canadian media have a blind spot when it comes to so-called ethnic issues

Much of the mainstream media is simply out of its depth when it comes to how to cover “ethnic” leaders, often ignoring or being too timid to address the ways their backgrounds inform and influence their political positions. It’s an obvious blind spot.

An exception was the face-off between new NDP leader Jagmeet Singh and senior correspondent Terry Milewski on Power and Politics earlier this month, when Milewski asked Singh about his views on Canada’s worst aviation-related terror attack: the downing of an Air India flight 182, in 1985.
