Mid-Week Post

In twenty-one days, it will be Halloween…

This is a countdown the students of McKay Public School in Port Colborne, Ontario will have to not heed:

An Ontario school that feels Halloween is too exclusive an event has cancelled its holiday celebrations and replaced them with the toned down, more inclusive Spirit Day.

The Welland Tribune reported Port Colborne's McKay Public School told parents last week that children in costumes were not welcome and instead recommended they wear black and orange clothing.

A Halloween dance was also cancelled, which angered some parents who felt their children were missing out on something really special. The Tribute reports that another school in St. Catharines, Ont., has also cut back on Halloween costumes.

I’d rather the entire holiday of Halloween be cancelled than to have some awful mockery of it in its place. Once more, political correctness (read: one-on-one communism, puritanism, party-pooping) has removed the entire cerebral system and spinal column of the lesser members of the human race. Yes- lesser members because if you think banning a children’s event or reinventing it for no other reason than the flimsy masquerade of “inclusion” is a clever move then you are lesser human being. 

So, kids of McKay Public School, show up in a costume on Halloween and don’t forget to wish everyone a Merry Christmas in December. 

The performance of the White House Press Corps during President Obama's Tuesday afternoon briefing resulted in not a single question that seriously challenged the president or even made him uncomfortable.

For the record, I called this.

The United States is leaning toward withholding most military aid to Egypt except to promote counterterrorism, security in the Sinai Peninsula that borders Israel, and other such priorities, a U.S. official said on Tuesday.

The official said U.S. President Barack Obama had not made a final decision on the issue, which has vexed U.S. officials as they balance a desire to be seen promoting democracy and rights with a desire to keep up some cooperation with Egypt's military.

I think it wouldn’t be hard for Obama to sign off on complete withdrawal of military aid to Egypt if he imagines the Egyptians are WWII vets.

Bolton dismissed the proposal as a ploy to allow Iran to reach the threshold of a nuclear weapon, which it could cross at will. In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in New York, he said: "This Iran deal is complete bullshit. Pure propaganda. The time it takes to go from 20% enrichment to full weaponization is two weeks. They are not supposed to do any enrichment, but Obama already conceded that."

The core of Francis' argument is that faced with the threat of the growing economic strength of the BRICS (notably Russia and China, who have significant interests in Canada's Arctic regions), plus the security problems along the long U.S.-Canada border, the two countries should pair up. Canada would be able militarily and economically to  defend its Arctic regions, and the two countries would be able to team up to exploit Canada's vast resources.

Has Mrs. Francis seen the US lately? It's a mess. You can thank the guy who was in the White House for the past four years (and he certainly doesn't appreciate our oil or natural and inner beauty). Why would Canada want to merge with it? Besides, the graying populations of both Russia and China will ultimately weaken their positions in the world.

We must bide our time.


“Someone needs to be held accountable and responsible for that, someone’s head needs to roll – and someone needs to be fired and I would suggest it be Kathleen Wynne that’s fired,” MacLeod said Tuesday, following the release of the auditor general’s report into the costs of cancelling a gas plant in Oakville.

The City of Toronto is investigating a controversial publicly-funded mural which critics say promotes a holy war against non-Muslims.

A Russian court denied bail on Tuesday to three of 30 people arrested on piracy charges following a protest by environmental group Greenpeace against offshore oil drilling in the Arctic.

All 30 face up to 15 years in jail if convicted for the protest in which a Greenpeace ship approached an oil platform owned by Gazprom, and have appealed against keeping them in custody through late November for further investigation.

Since October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, Jane Brody wrote a piece for the New York Times detailing advancements in prenatal testing. And while I’ve spoken multiple times about not blaming prenatal testing for the disgustingly high Down syndrome abortion rate, the two will seemingly always be linked. Brody’s article serves as a perfect case in point: she starts off her piece lamenting that a friend of hers was not given the choice to abort her child with Down syndrome.

This is why people like that are pro-abortion, not "pro-choice".

And now, scary cat stories. Enjoy.
