New Documentary Exposes ISIS Recruitment Of Children

Canadian mother Christine Boudreu is hoping parents will listen to her painful story. Islamic State (ISIS) recruited her child and he died fighting for the terrorist organization in Syria.

Los Angeles Times: ALL Democrats ‘Genuflect’ to Al Sharpton Now

The Times reports, in an article titled, “For Democrats, all paths to the White House run through the House of Sharpton,” that “[f]ew things once seemed more improbable” than Sharpton styling himself as a presidential kingmaker, given that he was so toxic that even mayors of New York City did not want Sharpton in town.

Canadian Economy Loses 7,200 Jobs, Even Worse Losses In Private Sector

Canada’s unemployment rate (which absurdly doesn’t include people who have given up on finding work) remains at 5.8%. By contrast, the unemployment rate in the United States is just 4.0%.

The numbers in the private sector were even worse, with 17,300 private sector jobs being lost.

Ontario and Quebec both lost jobs, as did Alberta, where Rachel Notley is trailing in the polls due in large part to anger towards her failed economic record.
