For A Thursday

Quickly now...

Oh, dear. The Narrative:

The radicalized San Bernardino gunman clashed with a Jewish co-worker over religion just two weeks before he and his Pakistani wife stormed an office holiday party where they massacred 14 people.

Syed Farook, 28, got into a heated argument with colleague Nicholas Thalasinos, a Messianic Jew who was identified today as one of the victims of Wednesday’s rampage.

It came as FBI agents discovered a huge arsenal of weapons and pipe bombs at a California home linked to Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik.

Agents discovered nearly 5,000 rounds of ammunition, a dozen pipe bombs and hundreds of tools for making improvised explosive devices at the property, law enforcement officials revealed today.

It also emerged that the US-born Farook appeared to have been radicalized and was in touch by phone and via social media with more than one international terrorism subject, which may have in part motivated the attacks, CNN reported, citing investigators.

And it is unclear if the earlier argument between Farook and Thalasinos played any role in the massacre – but authorities said Farook had left the party ‘angry’.

I'm sure no one knows the motives of these lone wolves who randomly shot people.


A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.

I'm sure it's nothing.

Russia puts sanctions on Turkey and the RAF bombs ISIS oil wells.

At least there is no loafing.

Oh, heavens to Betsy. I feel rejected:

Canada is finding that many Syrian refugees are reluctant to travel so far afield, a stumbling block as the country works to identify thousands of newcomers to bring here within a matter of months.

Justin Trudeau did not ask for Yazidi children to be fast-tracked into Canada.

Carry on.

Justin Trudeau did not want the Senate abolished because it benefited his party.

And he will make it stay that way:

The Trudeau government unveiled Thursday its plan for transforming the Senate into an independent, non-partisan chamber —the first major reform to the scandal-plagued upper house in 50 years and arguably the biggest change since its inception in 1867.

Democratic Institutions Minister Maryam Monsef announced the creation of an arm's-length advisory board to consult widely and recommend to the prime minister a short list of five merit-based nominees to fill each vacancy in the Senate.

Do the Liberals really believe that the wealthiest few keep their money in Canada?

The Liberal government's plan to switch some of the tax burden from middle-income earners to the top one per cent will likely lead to multibillion-dollar annual revenue shortfalls for Ottawa and the provinces, according to the C.D. Howe Institute.

The Toronto-based think-tank argues that efforts by high-income earners to avoid increased taxes will probably be greater than anticipated, while the reduction in the middle-income bracket will likely cost more than expected.

"The result of the federal tax changes could be national tax receipts falling short of commitments for both levels of government by more than $4 billion, meaning higher taxes elsewhere, unplanned spending cuts, or larger increases in government debt," the C.D. Howe Institute says in a study released Thursday.

You wanted this, Liberal voters.

Feel the squeeze in April.

The Liberals are attempting to put a lid on concerns raised about two taxpayer-funded nannies who provide care for Justin Trudeau's three young children.

"Dear Miss Manners,

A total douchebag sent me some Christmas greetings? Should I respond with a thank you card?"

Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart is going all-out for Christmas festivities, report local pro-life advocates – including sending a Christmas CD to a pro-life center.

In an exclusive e-mail, Germantown pro-life leader Ellen Castellano told LifeSiteNews that "for the first time in five years," Carhart "decorated the front of his office with a wreath and fake poinsettia."

Carhart also sent a Christmas CD and card to Germantown Pregnancy Choices, a pro-life center across the street from his abortion facility. The card wished "Dearest Anti-Woman Extremist" a "Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year."

And now, a Holocaust survivor meets the woman who saved his life:

Michael Hochberg, 77, met with Krystyna Jakubowska, 86, at Kennedy International Airport, and held hands as their relatives looked on. 

Ms Jakubowski’s family provided refuge for Mr Hochburg when he was just 4 - after being literally thrown over the wall of the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw to avoid falling into the hands of the Nazis.

For two years, he lived in Jozef and Rozalia Jakubowski and their son and three daughters, include Krystyna, a teenager at the time.
