How Canada’s cultish politics make bad problems even worse
The firing of Wilson-Raybould and Philpott is symbolic of the gross power imbalance where almost all authority falls into the hands of the leader. It is, in large part, because both women represented a possible hit for the Liberals’ poll numbers. But, more than that, they represented a danger for the incredibly thick cohesion of Trudeau’s caucus.
Cher Goes MAGA
President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday that he is “giving strong considerations” to the idea of sending illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, which includes many in California.
Cher balked at the idea, but not for reasons you may think. She complained, rightfully, that her city of Los Angeles should first do something with the tens of thousands of homeless people.
Trump tweeted his idea because Democrats have not cooperated on changing our immigration laws. People have crowded our border, which has caused an overflow at detention and housing centers. Officials simply do not have the room.
Most people on the left cried over this idea because they find it cruel and harmful, even those most of them hail from sanctuary cities. These cities will not enforce federal immigration laws and provide protection for illegals.
Cher is the voice of reason, believe it or not.
Weaponizing Hijabs: A Slippery Slope to Fascism
A good part of Europe – and even Canada — seems to have a problem with religious freedom. These countries also ascribe to a skewed view of the concept of separation of religion and state.
Cases in point: First, a decision coming out of Ireland where the garda (police) commissioner announced police officers will now be allowed to wear certain kinds of religious wear – specifically, hijabs for Muslim women (not burqas or niqabs [face veils], which the police rightly identified as security risks).
Second, a pending decision in Quebec to ban the wearing of any visible religious items for government employees.
ELDER: The fake news ‘surge’ in hate crimes
According to the FBI, “hate crimes” are on the rise. The agency reported a 17% increase in such crimes in 2017 compared to 2016. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., recently said: “There has been an increase in hate crimes. There has been an increase in very negative rhetoric at groups.” Notwithstanding the crime hoax perpetrated by actor Jussie Smollett, CNN recently reported, “Hate crime allegations show no signs of stopping, with plenty of examples reported in recent months.”
New study: Number of Germans brutally attacked and murdered by migrants doubled in one year
Its 2018 report “Crime in the Context of Immigration” analysed statistics of murders, homicides, assaults, robberies and offences against sexual self-determination and personal freedom.
The research set out to determine how many crimes involved “asylum seekers and refugees”, as well as people who are awaiting deportation or already have a residence permit.
