ABC News’ imagining of President Trump’s vision for his own funeral ‘despicable garbage,’ critic says

ABC News correspondents imagined President Trump’s vision for his own state funeral on Wednesday, joking about what the current president would expect compared to the services for George H. W. Bush.

“Probably a different tone in that funeral… first he’s going to choreograph it, so there might be more trumpets and fanfare,” ABC chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran said on the network’s livestream of the Bush funeral.

Do More to Bring Canadians Who Joined ISIS to Justice, Experts Tell Feds

With the collapse of the ISIS terrorist group in Syria and Iraq, human rights and security experts say it’s time for Ottawa to stop dragging its feet and take action to bring Canadians who joined ISIS to justice, whether they are detained abroad or have already returned.

Kurdish officials are currently holding 13 Canadian citizens—including three jihadi fighters, their wives, and seven children—in makeshift prisons in northern Syria, but these detainment camps are overstretched and authorities want Canada to take back its citizens, according to a Global News investigation.

Why The Right Should Start Taking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Seriously

Earlier this week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put up a tweet so mind-numbingly stupid that simply calling it “factually incorrect” would be an insult to the word “incorrect.” As is to be expected in the social media world, folks on the right ripped the incoming congresswoman to shreds for it.

Here were some of the typical responses: “This is factually incorrect!” “We cannot have someone this stupid in the government!” “This is what happens when we elect someone with no experience.” “Sure, this message is popular. Too bad it’s all wrong.”

Take a moment and look at those responses again. Do they look familiar? They are the exact same arguments the politico class made against then-candidate Donald Trump for two straight years, right up until the point he carpet-bombed Hillary Clinton on election night.

Silent Killer: Why Wind Turbine Infrasound Causes Serious Health Problems for Wind Farm Neighbours

Evidence proving the unnecessary harm done to wind farm neighbours by wind turbine noise mounts by the day: Germany’s Max Planck Institute has identified sub-audible infrasound as the cause of stress, sleep disruption and more; and a Swedish group have shown that it’s the pulsing nature of low-frequency wind turbine noise (‘amplitude modulation’) that is responsible for sleep problems in those forced to live with it.

Trudeau Tells Radio He Wants to Limit ‘Easy Access’ to Guns

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a radio interview he wants to limit “easy access” to guns by criminals. He’s considering banning handguns from sport shooters to tighten a law that can put anyone in jail if they buy, sell, have or transport any firearm without police authorization.
