  • Spending from Trump, Trudeau on infrastructure could drive up costs: documents

    The Hamilton Spectator ^ | July 25, 2017 | Jordan Press and The Canadian Press
    OTTAWA — The Trump administration's fledgling promise to spend $1 trillion on repairing American roads and bridges may have some unintended ripple effects in Canada. Newly released documents show that top civil servants in Ottawa worried earlier this year that Donald Trump's ambitious infrastructure program that he talked about on the campaign trail could end up driving up the construction costs in Canada. Trump has long talked about a massive infrastructure spending program to prod his country's economy, but the yet-to-be-released program has taken a back seat in a legislative agenda focused on an ongoing fight over health care, the...

    We need some sharp elbows and rough edges in DC A brash, rough talking, sometimes crude political outsider with a large media following, taking on the political establishment’s elite. Where have I seen this before? I’m talking about Kid Rock, not Donald Trump. Robert Ritchie, better known as Kid Rock, has announced that he is running for the US Senate—and I for one believe he is quite earnest about it, and furthermore may very well get elected.

    I’ve decided to reread a Tom Wolfe book during my week away from fake news. But which one? He’s such a prolific writer and the choices span both genres and generations: Bonfire of the Vanities, The Right Stuff, From Bauhaus to Our House…since I just reread - and reported on - The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test last year, during The Occupation, so that’s out: Interestingly, what was “new” journalism then – injecting yourself into the story and relating the facts as you  fancifully see fit, is now just journalism. Once the purview of Fine Arts and English programs, non-fiction today...

    Semyon Dukach is a serial entrepreneur. In 1997, he started Fast Engines, a company that produced performance enhancing software for online apps. He sold it for $35 million in 2000 — when he owned a nearly 50 percent stake in the company, according to Forbes. Then, he became a prominent angel investor and went on to lead TechStars Boston, the most prestigious startup accelerator in town. Now, he’s working on a new project, One Way Ventures — a venture capital fund specifically for immigrant founders. BostonomiX caught up with Dukach to talk about One Way, the challenges facing immigrant entrepreneurs...

No portion of the fee is optional and students must participate in every aspect of the day’s programming to be eligible to register for fall classes.

    Trudeau is sending out the message that imams preaching death to Jews and gays and treating women as second class citizens is okay in his Canada. And it seems it is The Canadian Press has obtained a copy of a draft citizenship guide the Liberals are working on. These guides are used by people studying to pass their citizenship test. The last time the guide was updated was in 2011 under the Harper government. While some of the changes to the guide were expected based upon Trudeau’s criticism of the Tories’ guide, others were totally unexpected. When former Immigration Minister...

    The System raised its brutal fist for all to see in Britain today. But the System didn’t win because Baby Charlie’s earthly struggle completely illuminated all of its horror in 3-D. “The System” raised its brutal fist in the face of the world from Britain today. It conceded, not in words, but in action how the parents of Charlie Gard had run out of time to secure outside help in trying to keep their baby alive. The System proved its terrible might in demonstrating to a World On Watch how it is impossible for a vulnerable baby and his parents...

    Pro-gun rally in front of Maryland State House in Annapolis on Feb. 6, 2013 protesting the state’s controversial Firearms Safety Act. (Photo: Andrew Harnik/The Washington Times) A long-simmering challenge against Maryland’s 2013 Firearms Safety Act has been appealed to the nation’s highest court. Attorneys for the Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation on Friday filed the 325-page petition to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Stephen Kolbe and a series of gun stores and shooting clubs asking the court to protect popular semi-automatic rifles and magazines from prohibition. At stake is the 2013...
  • The Plight of the Gregory Family from Santa barbara

    I want to share with you the tragic story of the Gregory family from Santa Barbara California. Alexander Gregory, like myself was a blogger and businessman with a family who lived in Santa Barbara. His family originally came from Long Island New York. They were also Christians and they home schooled their children, Russell, Jeffrey, Ashley and they had a baby boy named Chastin. That is where they got into trouble... First, it started with social services knocking on their door demanding to interview and "examine" their children, then it came to .the police, they forced their children to face...

    n 2016, researchers stumbled on a radical tactic for reducing another person’s bigotry: a frank, brief conversation. The study, authored by David Broockman at Stanford University and Joshua Kalla at the University of California Berkeley, looked at how simple conversations can help combat anti-transgender attitudes. In the research, people canvassed the homes of more than 500 voters in South Florida. The canvassers, who could be trans or not, asked the voters to simply put themselves in the shoes of trans people — to understand their problems — through a 10-minute, nonconfrontational conversation. The hope was that the brief discussion could...

    It’s time for Republicans serving in Washington to get over obsession with reelection, get out of denial that business as usual is acceptable, and recognize that we are engaged in spiritual and political warfare to save the country Who would have ever thought that the United States could face a coup attempt against its duly elected President? But for all intents and purposes that’s what’s going down. It’s a derivative of an old-fashioned, third world banana republic mob-style coup that is brewing against Donald Trump. It matters not that there is a lack of substance to the charges of Russian...

    Welcome to the Brave New World where girls can no longer be girls or boys, boys in a coming society where no one knows who or what they really are in a world where both politicians and popes claim there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism The progressive lib-left’s growing obsession with coddling the transgendered is giving big ideas to ISIS terrorists. The latest ‘minority’, granted sweeping special favors by uber politically correct governments, trannies are no longer just cropping up in school bathrooms and locker rooms, their props are now copied by terrorists on the run.

    Surely, if Islam is making any one statement, its most glaringly evident message is "NO TRESPASSING ALLOWED ON ISLAM!" As some are speculating, I will also guess that Officer Mohamed Noor, after hearing what might have sounded like a shot, may have believed Justine Damon had a gun in her hand as she leaned toward the squad car in her pajamas. If that was the case, his allegedly firing the shots that killed the unarmed Australian woman was simply the worst of judgments in the presence of panic. In saying all that, I’m straining - times 10 - to give...

    A Janitor's View ^ | 07/22/17 | Reasonmclucus
    Americans support Charlie Gard partly because his parents demonstrate the fortitude in the face of adversity that Americans have long admired in the British. Unfortunately for Charlie his doctors don't have that fortitude. The doctors prefer a white flag of surrender to a "stiff upper lip". If Charlie's parents had been in London during WWII they would have come out of the shelters between bombing raids and taken care of business. I don't know about his doctors. The decision by Charlie's parents to ask for American help repeats another British behavior. During the last century when "Mother England" needed help...

    Should a transgender college student be expected to sit through a college level art course without being “triggered”?   An art professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) has resigned after being vilified by LGBT students in what he describes as a toxic and hostile politically correct environment. Professor Michael Bonesteel, an art critic, author, and specialist in the history of comics and the history of outsider art, resigned after 14 years with SAIC when his hours were cut and his healthcare was lost in response to accusations of racism and homophobia when two transgender students...

    Claremont College fired its new director for the Queer Resource Center within days of his employment for controversial tweets, and now “student affairs professionals” are crawling out of the woodwork to condemn his termination as “an act of violence.” Dr. Jonathan Higgins was initially welcomed aboard with a warm reception – divisive tweets and all, by those doing the hiring – and was introduced as “a motivational speaker dedicated to empowering all LGBTQ students with an emphasis on students of color,” by a dean at a cluster college. However, within 72 hours of his employment, his tweets had made the...
  • What is halal?

    Halal Choices ^ | Sep 9, 2015
    Halal simply means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. This means that for any food to be considered halal it must comply with the religious ritual and observance of Sharia law. Here at Halal Choices we are concerned with the halal slaughter of animals such as beef, lamb and poultry. To be halal certified the animal must be facing Mecca, have its throat cut while still alive and then ritually sacrificed by a Muslim who recites a prayer dedicating the...

    If Sessions stays in the job, he should put a timetable on the Mueller investigation, giving it a deadline to yield proof of collusion. If the clock runs out and there is no proof of misconduct by the President Sessions should blow the whistle Swamp draining is not genteel work. And Jeff Sessions, the consummate gentlemen, has not yet displayed the grit required for that work. As Senator Sessions from Alabama, he was a model of decorum, dignity and collegial demeanor in the U.S. Senate. He was, and remains, loyal to his state, to his family, and to his oath...

    After 241 years of American freedom the world will be returned to the dystopian existence of masters and slaves because a willfully blind American public was seduced by the Humanitarian Hoax of climate change The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy. Obama, the humanitarian huckster-in-chief, weakened and politicized the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for eight years by presenting his crippling policies as altruistic when in fact they were designed for destruction. His...
