Trump named top global ‘press oppressor’

“While previous U.S. presidents have each criticized the press to some degree, they have also made public commitments to uphold its essential role in democracy, at home and abroad,” the committee wrote.

“Trump, by contrast, has consistently undermined domestic news outlets and declined to publicly raise freedom of the press with repressive leaders such as Xi [Jinping], [Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan, and [Abdel Fattah al-]Sisi.”

Woman plans to marry Tetris after the breakdown of a relationship with a calculator called Pierre

For 20 year old Noorul Mahjabeen Hassan, who prefers to be known as Fractal Tetris Huracan, that’s Tetris, the puzzle game she’s been in a relationship with for over a year. Fractal started her relationship with Tetris back in September 2016, and now spends up to twelve hours a day playing it on websites, her phone, and her Gameboy.

When ‘harmony’ is not good enough

The Vancouver author of I’m Right and You’re an Idiot is expanding his thinking on how to interact with opponents.

Somewhat like myself, James Hoggan, an expert in public relations, is realizing that the liberal ideal of pursuing comfortable “dialogue” with people of different opinions, and vested interests, is often ineffective. Certain types of collaboration just do not work.

Hoggan, who specializes in climate change issues, has been shifting more strongly to recognizing that social transformation sometimes needs to occur by embracing conflict, by permitting “fighting.”

LEAKED MEMO: DREAMers Are ‘Critical’ To Dems ‘Future Electoral Success’

The Center For American Progress (CAP) Action Fund circulated a memo on Monday calling illegal immigrants brought here at a young age — so-called “Dreamers” — a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.”

The memo, co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, was sent around to allies calling on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

Just who’s the bully when it comes to minimum wage hikes?

Dramatically increasing minimum wages in the food industry is irresponsible and even reckless.

On Jan. 1, Ontario’s minimum wage increased by 22 per cent, to $14 an hour. It will go to $15 on Jan. 1, 2019. That’s almost a 32 increase increase in 12 months. Other provinces, such as Alberta and B.C., will follow suit.

This obviously puts pressure on many businesses to recalibrate operating budgets. And the large food sector, where many workers earn the minimum wage, is already coping with major headwinds.

    I hope everyone watched the first episode of the “We Love Justin Tour”. CBC interviewed women and young people showing up for the event. They wanted to ask their idol such important questions as dying whales and gender equity. But most of them according to the CBC just wanted to meet him. He is so wonderful. And he had his sleeves rolled up again and blessed us with his words on “Diversity is our Strength”. The crowd showed their appreciation by clapping at every reply he made to questions. He is so cool!

  • Imagine Oprah as President of the USA! The end of the world, for sure. The same Dems who say that Trump must be nuts – they must be really, really, nuts.

    British Army ? Not as we know it.
    Critics have said an Army recruitment campaign, which promotes the emotional support given to troops, will fail to target those most likely to sign-up.
    New radio, TV and online adverts seek to address concerns potential soldiers might have about religion or sexuality.
    They ask: “What if I get emotional?”, “Can I be gay in the Army?” and “Do I have to be a superhero?”
    Retired Colonel Richard Kemp said the new £1.6m recruitment campaign will not solve the Army’s “recruiting crisis”.

    The new adverts, which are all voiced by serving soldiers, are part of the Army’s “belonging campaign”.
    In one, a Muslim soldier explains how the army has allowed him to practice his faith.
    General Sir Nick Carter, head of the Army, said the traditional recruit had been young, white men, aged from 16-25, but demographic changes meant there were now “not as many of those around as there once were”.

      Very amusing. Straight out of Monty Python. The only question that seems to be missing is, “Can I wear a dress and carry a handbag”?

        And for the Muslim recruits allowed to practice their faith, “is it ok if I cut the heads of my fellow infidel recruits?”

      And the CBC is excited this morning, that little Justin’s new Canadian Armed Forces is pushing for more women recruits. This is part of feminist Trudeau’s policy to encourage recruitment of black, muslim, lesbians in wheelchairs.

    Deportation is a fix.

    I am happy to see President Trump receive that well earned award as global press oppressor.
    He continues to make idiotic fools of the MSM.
    An appropriate follow up for him would be an award as the most successful global press suppressor.

    It is time those arrogant, self loving copycats got their long overdue just desserts from someone whose voice will be heard.

    Nice talk about the Oprah BS.
