Canada doesn't have death squads. It has huge amounts of taxpayer cash to give to terrorists:
"Canada does not engage in death squads," Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told CBC's Power & Politics on Friday."With the battlefield activity winding down, there is a very real question about where the foreign fighters go, and all of our allies, whether they're in the Five Eyes or the G7, we've all agreed to collaborate very carefully."Goodale said anyone who poses a terrorist risk, homegrown or from elsewhere, is viewed "with the greatest of seriousness" by Canada's intelligence, security and police agencies.Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said his department's job is ensuring foreign fighters don't become a threat."We will make sure that we put every type of resource into place so Canadians are well protected," he told a crowd at the Halifax International Security Forum on Friday.
How do you sleep at night, you lying sack of crap?
Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan opened a security conference on Friday by saying Canada is embracing a more muscular approach to international security, touting a new peacekeeping strategy and increased military spending as signs of an "increased role."
Oh, like fun you are!
At the time of the Vespers service, two individuals about thirty years old, bearded and dressed normally, entered the Carmelite convent of Verdun.
After talking with the sister at the reception, the latter told them that the Office of Vespers would soon begin. “They asked her if they could go to the chapel,” said the bishop. “She said yes”.
Once in the chapel, “they prayed in Arabic during Vespers,” says Bishop Gusching. “They presented themselves as divine messengers and told them: if you do not convert, you will go to hell.”
No, Mr. Scheer, Jagmeet Singh is just a Sikh Trudeau:
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has suggested the new leader of the federal NDP could be a more "authentic" champion for left-wing issues than Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
It's time for Trudeau to pay back the Chinese businessmen who made his time in office possible:
Justin Trudeau is expected to announce he is heading to Beijing early next month to launch free trade talks with China.
The trip has not been finalized but diplomatic sources suggest he will head east in the first week of December.
Another First Nation has stepped forward to lay claim to naming rights in Alberta.
The Stoney Nakoda have applied to the province to have a long list of southern Alberta geographic features and urban areas renamed to reflect the traditional language of their nation as the “original occupants.”
But Chief Stanley C. Grier of the Piikani Nation of the Blackfoot Confederacy says his people were here first.
Just a reminder, Kathleen Wynne's friend and co-designer of Ontario's controversial sex education program, is out free:
Convicted child pornographer Ben Levin, the former bigwig in Ontario’s ministry of education, is on parole — but he is busy online, trolling academic studies on porn and leaving comments that suggest the disgraced educator still doesn’t think he did anything wrong. ...
Caught by undercover officers online, the world-renowned educator, UofT prof and former member of Kathleen Wynne’s transition team was a frequent visitor to an incest chat room where he counselled single moms on how to sexually assault their daughters for his pleasure and theirs, a site where his profile listed his sexuality as “nothing is taboo.”
In one disgusting sampling read out in court, the depraved Levin told one London “mom” he’d like to “f— all 3 (of her children) in front of you with your help…would they submit or would I need to tie them?”
Levin was denied full parole in August 2016 after the National Parole Board found he still lacked insight into his crimes. This past January, he somehow convinced them otherwise and was granted full parole. ...
Since his release, Levin’s Internet footprint is all over ResearchGate, a kind of Facebook for academics to post and review studies.
“Research Ben” identifies himself as “retired from the University of Toronto” with a newly-developed interest in criminal justice “where the link between evidence and policy seems especially wide in many countries.”
While his parole conditions state he can’t “possess or access pornography or sexually explicit material in any form or type of media,” he seems to be getting his kicks by reading and commenting on scholarly articles about the dark world in which he once lurked. Levin lists 84 papers of interest with the vast majority dealing with studies around child pornography and pedophiles.
When junk science and accommodation of those who clearly mentally ill is foisted upon people, they lash out, unsure of whether to scream that there are two and only biological sexes or complain about the logistics of it:
Harris was also upset over the lack of consultation with parents. She contacted the principal, the school board and her MLA but wasn't satisfied with the responses.She believes the majority of the students won't use the gender-neutral washrooms, and agrees with Gabbey that they are creating logistical problems. She, too, thinks a couple of single-stall washrooms would be adequate.Baldassarre disagrees."Well, imagine being somebody who's part of an LGBTQ community or somebody who has an identity or a diversity issue ... being forced to have to go use a specific washroom," the principal said. "I mean for me personally it brings back shades of 1950s segregation in the southern U.S.
That Mr. Baldassare even exists and is allowed to be a principal where he can spew that fatuous crap is part of the problem. That no one has the intestinal fortitude to speak a scientific truth - that there are only male and female sexes - is another. Knowing that he cannot defend his tripe (which was used to foist these poorly-designed and unwanted bathrooms for the mentally ill) logically or ethically, he played an irrelevant and obfuscative race card. Mr. Baldassare isn't fit to scrub out those bathrooms. The rest of the school body's cowardice is not going to win this battle. Of course everyone should be against total pig crap. That's a sign of a healthy society that rejects irrationality by a few.
A graduate student, Lindsay Shepherd, at Wilfrid Laurier University, played a piddling three-minute clip in a class from an Agenda discussion on the hypnotically engaging subject of personal pronouns.
As a consequence, she ended up on the sharp end of the “transphobic” stick, and had her teaching put under immediate supervision by the higher beadles of WLU.
Shepherd was summoned to the high office of the Adria Joel, acting manager of the “Gendered Violence Prevention and Support” program, in the company of program coordinator Herbert Pimlott, and her professor of communications, Nathan Rambukkana. They were perturbed.
It was the clip from The Agenda that did her in.
A disgusting reality about the wounded North Korean soldier who defected and many others:
A North Korean soldier’s bold attempt to defect by crossing the heavily guarded border with South Korea galvanized attention this week.
But perhaps more surprising was the disclosure by surgeons struggling to save his life of what they found while repairing his intestinal wounds: dozens of parasitic worms, some as long as 11 inches.“In my 20 years as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a medical textbook,” said Dr. Lee Cook-jong, a lead surgeon.The discovery opened a window on the dire conditions in North Korea, including poor hygiene and nutrition. The news shocked many people in prosperous South Korea. ...Experts in parasitic worms were not surprised, however. They said that the finding was consistent with the broad sense of conditions in the isolated, impoverished North.Defectors to the South have cited the existence of parasites and abysmal nutrition. Because it lacks chemical fertilizers, North Korea still relies on human excrement to fertilize its fields, helping parasites to spread, the experts said.In a 2014 study, South Korean doctors checked a sample of 17 female defectors from North Korea and found seven of them infected with parasitic worms.
“The secret to North Korea’s survival is the reign of terror. Why do you think North Korea has public executions? Why do you think they block all communications? Why do you think North Koreans leave, knowing that they will never see their families again? It shows how bad things are. All our rights as people have been stripped away.”
The top commander of U.S. nuclear forces says he would push back if President Donald Trump asked him to carry out an order he deemed “illegal”.
Air Force Gen. John E. Hyten, commander of Strategic Command, told a panel at the Halifax International Security Forum on Saturday that he and Trump have had conversations about such a scenario.
In the event that Trump decided to launch a nuclear attack, Hyten would provide him with strike options, and the president would make his decision.
Hyten says if he believed Trump’s order violated the laws of armed conflict, he would tell him so and present him with legal alternatives.
Hyten would be in charge of U.S. nuclear forces in a war.
This sounds more like an opportunity to be contrary than providing sound military advice.
A Christian charity has removed mention of the Bible and simplified its version of the Nativity story to avoid confusing children who don't go to church.
The Scripture Union slimmed down its annual book telling the Christmas story, which it aims to send out to 100,000 children, because it said many of them did not know the basics.
While previous versions have included references to Bible verses and prompts for children to compare the story to the Gospels, this year's story is a simplified nativity which assumes children know very little about the birth of Jesus.
Jennifer Babb, church and community fundraising manager at the Scripture Union, said the removal of explicit references to the Bible "takes that barrier away - it makes it more of a simple story."
Uh, no, it's removing the context and - more importantly - one of the greatest spiritual messages in the world.
Also - despair isn't going to save Christmas, Father:
Father Desmond O’Donnell said Christians of any denomination need to accept Christmas now has no sacred meaning. ...
“We’ve lost Christmas, just like we lost Easter, and should abandon the word completely,” O’Donnell told the Belfast Telegraph.
“We need to let it go, it’s already been hijacked and we just need to recognise and accept that.”
I love this bit right here:
A couple decades down the road, when I’m dead from chronic bitterness and drinking too much expensive cabernet that I buy with the Social Security money you’ll be toiling to pay me, you won’t have families or careers. You’ll be my age and still making coffee for the next generation of ingrates, the children of the immigrants and super-religious Christians who represent the only portion of America still making babies. You’ll come home to your used Mitsubishi love robot named Olive, reheat some Sara Lee avocado toast sticks, and watch Saturday Night Live as it tries to make fun of President Donald Trump, Jr.
Enjoy your dismal future, snowflakes. You've earned it.
