"It's not you, it's Donald"


According to an August 11 article published by Harper's Bazaar, anyone who is married to a supporter of President Trump needs to file for divorce immediately. That's the advice given by the article's author, Jennifer Wright, who cites two recent high-profile divorce cases in which a wife filed for divorce on grounds of irreconcilable political differences...

Muslims In Calgary Website: Jewish Controlled Media Denigrates Beneficial Practice Of Female Genital Mutilation

From Blazing Cat Fur:

I have written about the virulently anti-semitic Muslims in Calgary organization before. In a bizarre bit of politically correct madness the Local Hate Arbitrator decreed that publishing excerpts from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion among other equally vile and widely held Muslim beliefs about Jews wasn’t a hate crime at all! Nor was their more recent hate screed against the Ahmadiyya. 
With that background it’s no surprise that they would publish an article extolling the benefits of Female Genital Mutilation and of course find room to blame the Jewish controlled media for bad mouthing this barbaric practice. But then again this is Justin’s Canada and this is mainstream Islam...

185,000 Ontario Jobs at Risk from Bill 148: Independent Economic Impact Analysis

TORONTOAug. 14, 2017 /CNW/ - Today the Keep Ontario Working Coalition (KOW) released the first and only independent economic impact analysis of Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces Better Jobs Act. Conducted by the Canadian Centre for Economic Analysis (CANCEA), the study revealed that if the legislation is implemented as currently drafted, there will be significant, sudden and sizable uncertainty for Ontario jobs, economy and communities.
The study concludes that these vast, unprecedented reforms will put about 185,000 jobs at risk in the first two years, greatly impacting Ontario's most vulnerable workers.
"The changes presented in Bill 148 will have dramatic unintended consequences that include putting close to two hundred thousand jobs at risk and seeing everyday consumer goods and services increase by thousands of dollars for each and every family in Ontario," said Karl Baldauf, Vice President of Policy and Government Relations at the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and spokesperson for the Keep Ontario Working Coalition. "We've run the numbers and it's clear that this is too much, too soon. If the Ontario government chooses to proceed with these sweeping reforms too quickly, all of us will be affected, and the most vulnerable in our society chief among them."
CANCEA was commissioned by the KOW coalition to measure the potential impacts of six key areas of change in Bill 148, including changes to minimum wages, "equal pay" provisions, vacation, scheduling, personal emergency leave (PEL) and unionization.
Data from the economic impact analysis shows:
  • $23 billion hit to business over the next two years alone
  • 185,000 Ontario jobs will be at immediate risk over the next two years
    • 30,000 of the jobs at risk are youth under 25
    • 96,000 employees at risk are expected to be women
  • 50 per cent increase to inflation for this year and the foreseeable future. The cost of everyday consumer goods and services will go up by $1,300 per household on average each and every year
  • The Ontario government would need to borrow $440 million more to cover the increases in new costs from this legislation. If the government were to provide offsets to businesses, as they have indicated, the province's treasury will take a bigger hit
  • Municipalities will be forced to increase employee wages by $500 million without additional offsetting revenues...

For condemnation of right-wing extremism to be credible, we also must condemn left-wing extremism




No responsible person on what's considered the mainstream right has ever condoned or defended Nazis, white supremacists, or the Ku Klux Klan. They are vicious, stupid, odious, racist hatemongers who deserve nothing but contempt.

Many conservative Republicans, including Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, explicitly condemned white supremacists yesterday in the aftermath of a vehicular homicide committed by a despicable white nationalist. President Donald Trump, in what is widely considered an error of communication, condemned "hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides" which, while a proper thing to do, did not single out the white supremacists for particular denunciation. It was only belatedly that he did explicitly name white supremacist groups. For Trump to have immediately identified white supremacists would have been appropriate, both to the circumstances of yesterday's atrocity and the uniquely monstrous character of these cretins who hold on to an ideology that has caused the killings and oppression of millions of people over time.

But, from a purely logical standpoint, Trump was not wrong to condemn bigotry and violence on many sides. Indeed, it was necessary, since the failure of the political left to condemn the violence and hatred perpetrated in the name of its causes has emboldened neo-Nazis and their ilk to rear their ugly heads in greater numbers and has led to street battles between left and right wing extremists.

During the 2016 American election campaign, Antifa, so-called "anti-fascists," whose methods and ideology are as fascist as anything Benito Mussolini dreamed of, physically attacked innocent people for the 'offense' of attending Trump rallies or even for wearing Make America Great Again baseball hats.

During the last few years, far-left activists have violently attacked and shut down talks at publicly funded universities by conservative speakers.

Yet where was the condemnation of Antifa from the political left? Leftist mealy-mouthed denunciation of violence always seemed to be equivocated with an expression of understanding of why Antifa and their fellow travellers would be triggered by the likes of harmless gadflies such as Milo Yiannopoulos and Charles Murray.

Black Lives Matter is a hate-filled movement of Black supremacist, racist, anti-semitic, anti-capitalist extremists who have shut down thoroughfares, putting peoples lives at risk and which has inspired and praised the murders of police officers. Where is the condemnation of Black Lives Matter from the political left? Instead, left wing politicians and leftist groups clamor to give awards and seek photo-ops with that organization of vicious hatemongers.

The fact is that while neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and white supremacists may be the most reprehensible, detestable, violent hatemongers, they are not the only reprehensible, detestable, violent hatemongers. There needs to be condemnation of all such evil in our society if our institutions hope to maintain credibility.

It's time for the center to speak out forcefully and act to take the momentum away from extremists before the extremes are all anyone has to choose from.

Former NSA experts say DNC hack wasn’t a hack at all, but a leak—an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system

This is from The Nation, which usually is about as anti-Trump as you can find in US media:

...There has been a long effort to counter the official narrative we now call “Russiagate.” This effort has so far focused on the key events noted above, leaving numerous others still to be addressed. Until recently, researchers undertaking this work faced critical shortcomings, and these are to be explained. But they have achieved significant new momentum in the past several weeks, and what they have done now yields very consequential fruit. Forensic investigators, intelligence analysts, system designers, program architects, and computer scientists of long experience and strongly credentialed are now producing evidence disproving the official version of key events last year. Their work is intricate and continues at a kinetic pace as we speak. But its certain results so far are two, simply stated, and freighted with implications:
  • There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee’s system on July 5 last year—not by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak—a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system. This casts serious doubt on the initial “hack,” as alleged, that led to the very consequential publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer.
  • Forensic investigations of documents made public two weeks prior to the July 5 leak by the person or entity known as Guccifer 2.0 show that they were fraudulent: Before Guccifer posted them they were adulterated by cutting and pasting them into a blank template that had Russian as its default language. Guccifer took responsibility on June 15 for an intrusion the DNC reported on June 14 and professed to be a WikiLeaks source—claims essential to the official narrative implicating Russia in what was soon cast as an extensive hacking operation. To put the point simply, forensic science now devastates this narrative.
This article is based on an examination of the documents these forensic experts and intelligence analysts have produced, notably the key papers written over the past several weeks, as well as detailed interviews with many of those conducting investigations and now drawing conclusions from them...
