Friday Post

Still more...

The death toll in Paris stands at one hundred and forty:

Confirmed death toll at 140 following a series of coordinated attacks around Paris on Friday evening. Approximately 100 of the victims were killed in Bataclan concert hall.

It's time to raze neighbourhoods.

Useless douchebag leaders say middling things about this violence just for something to do:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded to Friday night's attacks in Paris. Here is his statement:

"I am shocked and saddened that so many people have been killed and injured today in a number of terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and that many others are being held hostage.

"Once again we've seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians," Obama told reporters at the White House.
“It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris,” he said. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given new defence minister his marching orders — and Harjitt Sajjan’s top priority is to end Canada’s combat mission in Iraq and Syria.

Canada's new defence minister, Harjit Sajjan, says the country must contribute to the defeat of ISIS, but he rejected the idea that Canadians should be afraid of the jihadist organization.

"ISIS is a threat, no doubt about that. Should we fear it? No. The Canadian population should have full confidence in all the security services to keep us safe."

Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett says Canada must stop the “epidemic” of murdered and missing aboriginal women and should not lay blame on First Nations people.

There are similarities across all female homicides. Most homicides were committed by men and most of the perpetrators knew their victims — whether as an acquaintance or a spouse.

The majority of all female homicides are solved (close to 90%) and there is little difference in solve rates between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal victims.

Remember- these people were voted in.

It's one thing to point out their idiocy but really the blame lies in the socio-political rot that has been allowed to fester in the masses.

Would morons like Trudeau or Obama be in positions of power if "safe-space" seeking sheep weren't allowed to vote?

Stupid people are the reason why we can have nice things.

In other news:
A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Saturday off the coast of southwest Japan, triggering a small tsunami. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The earthquake struck at 5:51 a.m. (20:51 GMT) at a depth of 10 kilometres (6 miles) about 190 kilometres southwest of Kagoshima city, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Some good news:

Kurdish forces backed by U.S. air strikes seized the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar from Islamic State on Friday, a Reuters witness said, in one of the most significant counter-attacks since the militants swept through the north last year. 

"ISIL defeated and on the run," the Kurdistan regional security council said in a tweet, using an acronym for Islamic State. It said Kurdish peshmerga forces, which led the operation, had secured Sinjar's wheat silo, cement factory, hospital and several other public buildings.

Sinjar is home to Iraq's Yazidi minority who suffered at the hands of Islamic State when it overran the area in August 2014, systematically slaughtering, enslaving and raping thousands.

That's because Obama is a douchebag:

A former American ambassador to Canada says he is embarrassed by how the U.S. government handled the Keystone XL pipeline review.

David Wilkins, who was ambassador during the presidency of George W. Bush, says there was no need to take seven years to announce a decision.

U.S. President Barack Obama rejected the US$8-billion cross-border pipeline a week ago on the grounds it would neither help the U.S. economy nor its efforts to combat carbon emissions. ...

“Frankly, I was embarrassed by the way my government handled the whole thing. A seven-year delay. Absolutely unnecessary. That simply is not how you treat a friend, period,” said Wilkins.

“This is a classic example of politics trumping good policy. President Obama chose politics, in my opinion.”

With a Liberal Party mouthpiece protected by PM Trulander, why rely on facts from objective sources?

Let’s hope Canada’s newly minted Trudeau cabinet, now being indoctrinated with “green orientation and sensitivity” under the aegis of Stephane Dion, isn’t taking those sensitivity lessons from the Liberal’s in-house broadcaster. In a sensational bit of reportorial distortion and ignorance, CBC News on Thursday reported that Canada and other G20 nations are “spending US$452-billion a year subsidizing their fossil fuel industries.”
The number comes from Oil Change International, one of scores of front organizations funded by an unholy cabal of activist U.S. foundations — Tides, Hewlitt, Oak, Rockefeller — whose billion-dollar cash pools are being mobilized to rid the world of fossil fuels and reduce the world’s population of messy people. The $452-billion was described as “shocking” by Oil Change activist Alex Doukas, especially since the objective of the coming Paris climate summit is to have most of the world’s oil and gas reserves “stay in the ground.”

Upon the orchestrated release of the Oil Change report, the CBC immediately latched on to the false claim that Canada provides direct subsidies of C$3.6-billion to the oil and gas industry and another $3-billion indirectly through Export Development Canada. The Toronto Star (in a special report in a series subsidized by the same Tides Foundation that also funds Oil Change) also played the subsidy story more or less straight.

The first bit of sensitivity training for the new Trudeau cabinet should aim to alert ministers to the fact that they are being bamboozled by professional statistical tricksters, not just over the science of climate change. The claim that Canada subsidizes fossil fuels with more than $6-billion in government money is demonstrably false.

The $3-billion from Export Development Canada is not a subsidy. The federal Crown corporation appears to have provided fossil fuel finance to Canadian companies exploring outside Canada. A loan is not a subsidy, and since EDC generally gets its money back, with interest, the only real subsidy might be a slightly lower interest rate on the loan or the marginal guarantee fee. On $3-billion, the level of subsidy might be a few hundred thousand dollars.

And now, a kitty pub:

Cat Cafes have a drunken counterpart.

If you’re allergic to cats, there’s one more destination you should stay away from: The Bag O Nails pub in Bristol. 

The pub is the first of its kind, piggy backing of the growing trend of cat cafes. 

Those looking for a pint or glass of wine can join 15 felines who roam the pub freely.
