  1. Outrage and ferocious speech by Chicago Police Superintendent - a black himself - on the damage that Smollet's hoax had done......sealed his fate.

     

    After hearing that, how can Empire stand by Smollet?

    Senate has uncovered no direct evidence of conspiracy between Trump campaign and Russia

    After two years and 200 interviews, the Senate Intelligence Committee is approaching the end of its investigation into the 2016 election, having uncovered no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.

      I'm not sure what Russian involvement means.  It's not a crime to communicate with somebody in Russia.  Or Canada.  Or Mexico.  Or Finland, etc.  There is no criminal statute for "collusion".

      It is weird and very telling that even though Senate investigators  joined their House colleagues  in finding Zero evidence of Trump and ‘Russian Collusion’,  both  CNN, MSNBC and their co-horts are working tirelessly to ignore the exculpatory result

    4. Truth Detector

      Exactly.  One "reporter" from NBC went out of his way to clarify that there isn't any evidence exonerating Trump either.  That's how absurd things are.  You need evidence to prove your innocence now, even if there is no evidence proving your guilt.

  5.  

    So, Trudeau wants to exempt SNC-Lavalin from prosecution....because SNC-Lavalin employs 9,000 folks.

    That means, anyone can get away with doing illegal stuff as long as you create employment!  Especially so, if you're in Quebec!

    Wow.

  6. Trump's approval rating among likely voters soars to 52% - his best yet - after the State of the Union Address.

     

    Rasmussen Reports poll as Trump at 52 per cent approval, his best showing in 23 months and a higher number than his winning edge in 2016

    Asked what Monday's numbers mean, a senior Democratic House aide confided on background: 'I don't know yet if it's horrible, but it sure isn't good

     

    Rasmussen's Monday numbers suggest Trump could have a majority of Americans behind him and a leg up on his winning position from two years ago. '

      Good point. In 4th grade they've matured beyond using emojis to express themselves.

      .......but......

      ......4th graders haven't gone beyond getting easily triggered by emojis!   They are easily  side-tracked by emojis!   That's why emojis, are a good "rebuttals" for tantrum-throwing, exploding leftist heads!

  9. So, Trump's proud of the Lincoln bedroom....

     

    ‘Want to see the Lincoln bedroom?’: Trump relishes role as White House tour guide

    At least, he isn't into being a bed-and-breakfast operator - unlike the Clintons.   "Wanna sleep in the Lincoln bedroom......for a fee?  Breakfast included?"

     

    Can't get any crassier than that.

  10. The unspoken threat.

      Mccallum's pathetic attempt to assuage China seems to indicate Canada is silently squirming to find ways to break the extradition treaty with the USA.

    If Huawei's executive gets extradited, a Canadian will most certainly get executed. 

    I think, that is the unspoken threat -  the sword hanging on Trudeau's head.  With the election just a few months away.....that would surely cause a problem.

      AngusThermopyle

      He's just paving the way for the Liberals to break the extradition treaty, as he's been instructed to do. Trudeau is caving to Chinese pressure exactly as I knew he would. He's weak, always has been and always will be. Some less than intelligent Canadians thought it would be a good idea to have a beta male soy boy run the country and this is the result.

    4. Dougie93

      There's no way for them to "break" the extradition treaty, there are no lawful means for the government to interfere at all at this juncture, it's in the hands of the judiciary, the Queen's bench does not answer to the legislature.

  11. Here comes the next goal of environmentalists - which could very well be imposed by Trudeau, if he's given a second term.  

    PLANET-FRIENDLY DIET.

    Expect a hike in meat prices.

      People got fat under the pyramid diet that's been promoted by governments.   High-carbs and low protein.   We've seen the epidemic of diabetes! 

      People are losing weight on Atkins and keto - it's the easiest diet to stick to.  It's also the diet compatible to the SEDENTARY lifestyle of people in our modern-day culture!  You don't gain weight as long as you mind your carbs - even without exercise!

       

      This new so-called planet-friendly diet has nothing to do with health or nutrition!  It's bs to suck you in.   It's just another loony dictatorial goal of the looney left!

      Expect mainstream media to be showing so-called "research studies" that will promote this!  They know how to lead the lemmings.

      The left is inherently loonie, there is no part of the left which is not, thus loonie left is actually superfluous.

      At this juncture, if you're looking for an epithet, might as well just speak the truth of it and call them what they are; commies

  12. FN wants to buy the pipeline!

    Whom are we kidding here?  This is another shell game!

    Canadian taxpayers bought the pipeline - and, Canadian taxpayers will be the one buying it too for FN!  Double whammy for taxpayers!

    Lol.   Canadians are surely taking a terrible beating from Trudeau government!   slapping.gif

     

    There's no letting up, eh......taking us through the grinder!

  13. Ahhh.....I think I get it now.

    This is a political position for Trudeau:  standing up against Saudi Arabia (over human/women's rights).   Of course, Canadians will unify behind their Prime Minister against a tyrannical Saudi Arabia......which is good for the coming election. 

    Just look at the photo ops with Freeland.   How many refugees are personally greeted and embraced by a foreign minister?

      And of course Asia and family are still in hiding. I guess she doesn't qualify for help since she only spent eight years in solitary confinement while awaiting execution for committing blasphemy by drinking from a cup that was for Muslims. I guess she's got it too good, hiding with her family while the majority of a country looks for her so they can kill her, and presumably her family too. Or...they just don't make for as good a photo op. Go Libs go!

  14. Why hasn't Trudeau offered an asylum to a Christian woman (Asia Bibi), and yet it's readily offered to a non-Christian?

      Yes.   Don't get me wrong - I don't resent asylum being offered to this lady who renounced Islam, but it's the non-response to a Christian, that's grating.

      Furthermore, this lady had Australia as her choice - and Australia was on the verge of taking her.  And, unlike the case of Asia Bibi - there are other countries that expressed interest.   There was no need for Canada to step in.

  15. Unifor Dias criticizes government (Ontario and Fed) for being quiet about GM.   What does Dias think?   That they can force a company to remain open and operate - just because the Union demands it?  Are you kidding me?

    I know it hurts Canada to lose so many jobs - but, the sooner we accept that reality,  the better it'll be.

  18. Sentenced to 3 years in prison.  Cohen - according to prosecutors - "did not fully cooperate."  I guess that means they didn't hear what they wanna hear from him.

    But the question is:

    What's keeping him from fully cooperating?   He's already burned his bridges with Trump  - so why didn't he fully cooperate?

     

    Could it be.....he has nothing more to give?

      I'm not sure I heard this accurately, but apparently he's said that he was forced to make a plea deal due to financial reasons.  He said, he can't risk going on trial and wait for a presidential pardon since he doesn't have the money for the lengthy trial.

    3. Don Jonas

      Don Jonas

      Because he's charged with doing crimes he was paid by Trump to do, and because a pardon involves an admission of guilt, Trump can't pardon him without implicating himself further.

    4. Don Jonas

      Don Jonas

      He wouldn't pardon him anyway because he sang like a canary. I have heard (but am unsure of the accuracy) that his refusal to answer some questions was based on an unwillingness to flip on the mob, but that he flipped on Trump hard.

  20. Candy cane banned....because, "J" is for Jesus, the red symbolizes His blood, and white is for the Resurrection.  

    No kidding.  The looney politically correct are getting even more loonier!

     

    Manchester Elementary principal Jennifer Sinclair sent a memorandum to parents and students informing them that candy canes were off limits because “Historically, the shape [of the candy cane] is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection. This would also include different colored candy canes.”

    The list essentially banned any Christmas-specific decor or activities, including Christmas carols and music, reindeer, Elf on the Shelf, and red and green items, but it allowed for non-Christmas winter imagery such as yetis, penguins and “snowmen, snow women, snow people, snowflakes”:

      The school should be made to stop using the term Christmas to describe their festivities.  Christians groups should take that up as a challenge.  That's a form of misappropriation.

      @betsy  have to agree, this whole PC nonsense is a bridge too far.     I'm surprised they do call it Christmas, usually it's 'holidays' or some such thing.

      If you read the CBC story, you'll see that wage growth for full-time workers has been stalled for years now. They've dumbed down a number of industries into lower paying jobs, by hiring immigrants into entry-level positions with a low wage. They in turn are willing to take the low paying job, as starting over in a new country means you take what you can get. However these are the jobs that were traditionally held by young people, "junior positions", are now being occupied by adults who are willing to do the work of a junior, and even more.
