    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/15 | Judi Mcleod
    Whether he wears high heels or not, Jenner’s still what his Creator made him--a guy. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, spouses wanting to duck out on commitment and responsibility abandoned their marriages on the pretext of going off to “find myself”. With the ‘Me Generation’ coming into its own, and ‘free love’ in abundant supply, what could possibly go wrong? Life for the Lib-Left tumbled along like tumbling tumbleweeds down the empty streets of America’s western ghost towns over ensuing decades. People got used to knowing that Liberals have not only always justified any and all behavior with bleeding heart...

    Writing in USA Today, Alexandra Samuels, USA Today's columnist for their "voices from campus" section, believes that people trying to have big lips are racist. Specifically, Ms. Samuels is referencing the "#KylieJenner Challenge," in which teenagers suck on shot glasses so that their lips are "plump and pouty" like Kylie Jenner's, who is on the reality TV show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." While Ms. Samuels warns teens that the practice is dangerous, as it has led to bruises and some disfiguration, the main point of Ms. Samuels's piece is that trying to create big lips is racist. The article,...

    Oil executives have been making headlines recently, due to large purchases of their own company’s stock. In fact, insider buying in the oil industry is higher than any other industry, except the machinery industry. Who’s buying? Major insider purchases for the month of March were made by Kinder Morgan (NYSE: KMI) and Diamond Offshore Drilling (NYSE: DO). Diamond Offshore Drilling’s CEO, Corp Loews, purchased 685,373 shares on the open market, and Rich Kinder, CEO of Kinder Morgan, purchased 100,000 shares of Kinder Morgan. In March, Rich Kinder and Corp Loews weren’t the only executives buying company stock. The Director of...

    We have to view the powers of Congress and the 10th Amendment as sort of two sides of the same coin. The 10th Amendment says in effect that any power that’s not given to Congress is retained by the states or by the people. And so that begs the question: What powers are given to Congress? And if any of those powers in isolation or all of those powers hooked together are open-ended — if they’re limitless – then the Tenth Amendment means nothing. Now generally we don’t look at any provision of the Constitution with an eye toward saying...

    Senator Marco Rubio has been criticized by many Tea Party activists for his stance on illegal immigration, but that doesn’t seem to hold him back in the polls. Look at these results from CNN’s latest poll among Republican voters: "Overall, 17% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents back Bush for the GOP nomination, while 12% support Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Paul and Rubio stand at 11% each, with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 9% and Cruz at 7%…" Remarkable: Bush and Rubio both poll at 18% when respondents are asked which candidate best represents the future of the Republican Party....

    Feeling that bicycle maintenance is too male-centric, Bike Forth, a community bike shop in California, will open its doors every other Tuesday specifically to cater to the “Women Trans Femme” (WTF) communities. Every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, everyone is welcome, but men are not allowed to shop on these Tuesdays. Volunteers at the shop noticed that “most” of their customers were men, so they felt that they should be banned occasionally so that “other” communities would feel welcome and not intimidated. Anne Hereford, a volunteer at Bike Forth who helped initiate Women Trans Femme Night, said, “The idea is...

She is very critical of Musk, saying that his language is not inclusive enough to either women and minorities. "Diversity, Inclusion, Access and...

The Daily Caller reported the class given by the DEOMI, an organization with a mission to provide a “world-class human relations education,” was actually removed from the group’s website upon questioning. But the fact they were there at all – and approved by the Defense Department for use – was alarming enough to some who saw irony in the fact U.S. military service members are...

    It took less than one day, but liberals are running wild, letting people know that if they don't support Hillary Clinton, it's because they're sexist and ageist. The fact that she would be bad for the country doesn't matter to these people. The fact that she would be the first woman President is enough for them to support her, yet they unironically say that people who disagree with her politics are the real sexists. Here is just a small sample of the stupidity:

There are those who believe it’s a reason to celebrate, while others have a slightly different opinion. See for instance this tweet from a Dutch Twitter-user: Translation: “A women of 65 years old pregnant with quadruplets. This is loathsome. Incredibly egotistical.” Her argument is that the mother is a) too old to take care of one new baby let alone four, and b) that she’s basically nearing the end of her life thereby making...

The biggest take-away isn’t that he’s pro-Second Amendment (we already knew that), but that he’s determined to run a positive campaign. Just watch the video: ... Of course Cruz criticized President Obama and other Democrats for implementing horrendous policies that do tremendous damage to America and the rest of the world, but his message was — overall — very positive. He emphasized time and again that he’s inspired and motivated to fight “for your constitutional rights” and that he...

    Atheist physicists often refer to a "primordial soup" as a basis for the development of life on earth. However, they cannot precisely map from that soup, in a mathematical way, into an actual life form. Sure, there are plenty of theories about atmospheric conditions that are "ripe for creating life", but it remains conjecture, although the die-hard atheist physicist presents it as factual. They use the "authority" associated with their title, or their position within a university or other research organization, providing false fodder for young minds full of mush, who could not think critically of their lives depended on...

Although the German police don’t want to share any details at this moment, they say that the evidence explains why he committed this horrendous mass murder.

When he was 27 years old, Lubitz apparently suffered from regular panic attacks. He was still being treated by a psychiatrist...

At the time everyone thought that Bush was going to force everyone else to declare their candidacy early. It doesn’t appear that has happened, Cruz and Paul have appeared in no rush to make a formal announcement. Scott Walker, perhaps the front runner in the race, still hasn’t formally announced his candidacy and there’s...

    1.) LET’S ALL COVER FOR HILLARY…AGAIN Upon leaving their positions at the State Department, all former employees must sign an OF-109 form, certifying that they have “surrendered to responsible officials” all classified, unclassified and other work-related documents in their possession. When State Dept spokeswoman Jen Psaki told AP reporter Matt Lee last week that the Department was “unable” to find the form Hillary Clinton was supposed to have signed, Lee responded that “…a human resources department presumably has a file on every employee.” “It can’t be that difficult to–” “I don’t think former secretaries are standard employees,” interrupted Psaki, joining...

    Without America there would be no Islamic State. Indeed, without America there would have been no Cold War. Without the Cold War there would have been no need to arm and train the Mujahideen against the Soviets. Without the Mujahideen there would have been no Al Qaeda. Without Al Qaeda there would have been no Iraq War. And without the Iraq War there would have been no Islamic State. Or as President Barack Obama put it: ISIL is a direct outgrowth of Al Qaeda in Iraq which grew out of our invasion which is an example of unintended consequences which...

    The term “overdiagnosis” came into vogue in 2011, with the publication of best seller Overdiagnosed: Making People Sick in the Pursuit of Health, by MDs H. Gilbert Welch, Lisa Schwartz, and Steve Woloshin. As lead author Welch explains in his introduction: “While the term sounds like it means simply ‘excessive diagnosis,’ it actually has a more precise meaning. Overdiagnosis occurs when individuals are diagnosed with conditions that will never cause symptoms or death.” Overdiagnosis matters because the health care system has no mechanism in place for distinguishing between a legitimate diagnosis and an overdiagnosis. As such, an overdiagnosed patient will...

    Benjamin Netanyahu won yesterday’s election in Israel. Polling last week seemed to indicate that the election was a dead heat. In reality, Netanyahu’s party won handily. There have been some allegations made that President Obama has been helping to fund Netanyahu’s opposition. Whether that is true remains to be seen. Congress should investigate whether tax money was used to fund the Netanyahu opposition. Ultimately even if Obama did send money to Israel’s leftists it didn’t change the result. If anything it may have riled some Israelis enough to get them to vote for Netanyahu’s party. It’s clear at this point...

    In 1762 Irish Catholic soldiers, who were serving in the British Army stationed in New York City, organized the first St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the City. They wanted to celebrate the life of St. Patrick and show their gratitude for his having brought the Catholic Faith to Ireland. From its very beginning, the parade was a religious celebration that included attendance at mass receiving Holy Communion and prayerful contemplation of the gift St. Patrick had given the Irish. Over the centuries since 1762 the parade has become a major event in the lives of many people. Those who are...

    OBAMA: “Two things. One is ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion which is an example of unintended consequences — which is why we should generally aim before we shoot. I never saw such a classless American president. He knows perfectly well that President George W. Bush won’t defend himself, because he – unlike Obama – does have a sense of decorum, so he quickly tries to put the blame for his own failures on Bush. This isn’t about left versus right, but about being a gentleman rather than a bore....

    Is Climate Change/global warming/global cooling real? Our government says it is all settled science. But if that is the case, why did Patrick Moore, an environmentalist from Canada and one of the founders of Greenpeace, decide to leave the organization nearly 30 years ago, in response to “extreme, anti-scientific anti-capitalistic processes within the climate change community?" “It fails the most basic principles of the scientific method,” said Moore, claiming that the “science” of climate change has been derived from climate models based on unsound theory and computer models based on subjectively assigned values. Naturally there are points that the climate...
