    The Daily Mail contacted the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition wondering about our projections for the number of Canadian euthanasia deaths in 2022. EPC has published articles reporting the number of 2022 euthanasia deaths in Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, Québec and recently we found the Nova Scotia data. Based on the known data I suggested that there were likely 13,500 Canadian euthanasia deaths in 2022. The article by James Reinl, the social affairs columnist for the Daily Mail reported the following on June 7: Canada has seen another record-busting year of euthanasia deaths, with a 35 percent rise to some 13,500 state-sanctioned suicides...

  • The US is building factories at a wildly fast rate

    Business insider ^ | 06/08/2023 | Noah Sheidlower
    Last year, production at American factories increased — and so did the production of factories themselves. According to data from the Census Bureau released last week, construction spending by US manufacturers more than doubled over the past year. For April 2023, the annual rate reached nearly $190 billion compared with $90 billion in June 2022, with manufacturing accounting for around 13% of non-government construction. The US government has offered billions of dollars in subsidies for the production of electric vehicles and solar panels to compete with countries such as China and to fortify US leadership in sectors including clean energy....

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is being destroyed on social media for refusing to say that President Donald Trump is innocent following the announcement of his indictment on Thursday.“The weaponization of federal law enforcement represents a mortal threat to a free society. We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation. Why so zealous in pursuing Trump yet so passive about Hillary or Hunter? The DeSantis administration will bring accountability to the DOJ, excise political bias and end weaponization once and for all,” DeSantis said in a statement following the announcement of Trump’s indictment. The...

    A recently amended California bill would add “affirming” the sexual transition of a child to the state’s standard for parental responsibility and child welfare—making any parent who doesn’t affirm transgenderism for their child guilty of abuse under California state law.
  • New [Illinois] law limiting legal challenges to state laws and executive orders unconstitutional on many fronts: legal expert

    Chicago City Wire ^ | 6/9/2023 | W.J. Kennedy
    Legislation that Gov. JB Pritzker, a Democrat, signed this week that limits challenges to his and the General Assembly’s Democratic agenda to circuit courts in Cook (Chicago) and Sangamon (Springfield) counties is in direct violation of the Illinois Constitution on at least two fronts, Jacob Heubert, president of the Chicago-based Liberty Justice Center (LJC), tells Chicago City Wire. In an email, Heubert explained that Article VI Section 9 of the constitution gives original jurisdiction to the county’s circuit courts in all justiciable matters, with a few exceptions: when the Supreme Court has original and exclusive jurisdiction relating to redistricting of...
  • MLB Pitcher Abruptly Cut After Brutally Honest Comments on Target and Bud Light

    The Toronto Blue Jays have cut pitcher Anthony Bass a week after he shared a video that encouraged Christians to boycott companies such as Target and Bud Light over their LGBT advocacy. Bass, 35, initially apologized for sharing the video on May 31. He shared a clip from a person named Ryan Miller, who is behind an Instagram account “dudewithgoodnews.” The video quoted Bible verses and called the LGBT ideology “evil” and “demonic.” Bass quickly expressed remorse following a backlash, but his critics did not feel his apology was genuine. He was booed a day after sharing the video by...

    For U.S. special operations personnel, conducting high-altitude parachute jumps are pretty much par for the course. Yet doing so with a nuclear bomb strapped between your legs is on an entirely different level. That’s exactly what can be seen in the top shot above. Here, a U.S. Army Special Forces paratrooper is pictured free-falling during a training exercise with a Special Atomic Demolition Munition, or SADM, harnessed to them. A form of atomic demolition munition (ADM), SADMs were man-portable nuclear weapons, also known as "backpack nukes." These munitions were fitted into specially designed hard/cloth carrying cases for their transportation on...
  • Inside the Taliban's war on drugs - opium poppy crops slashed

    In April 2022, Taliban supreme leader Haibatullah Akhundzada decreed that cultivation of the poppy - from which opium, the key ingredient for the drug heroin can be extracted - was strictly prohibited. Anyone violating the ban would have their field destroyed and be penalised according to Sharia law. A Taliban spokesman told the BBC they imposed the ban because of the harmful effects of opium - which is taken from the poppy seed capsules - and because it goes against their religious beliefs. Afghanistan used to produce more than 80% of the world's opium. Heroin made from Afghan opium makes...

    The address was off by a single letter.Losing a beloved fury family member can be tough on anyone. It's even worse when that death was caused by a police officer who was sent to the wrong address. That's exactly what happened to a family's dog in Waco on Saturday, June 3. “The Waco Police Department is saddened by the unfortunate shooting resulting in the death of Finn, a beloved pet,” the Waco Police Department wrote in a Facebook post. The incident occurred after a call of a reported break in. While dispatchers correctly entered in the address, it autocorrected to...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) sent a four-page letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland Friday expressing grave concerns with the indictment of Donald Trump and again requesting documents and information related to the raid at Mar-a-Lago that the DOJ has refused to provide to the committee.The letter begins by reminding Garland that Trump is “Biden’s chief rival in the upcoming presidential election” and a reference to the double standard created by the failure to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information (emphasis mine):The Biden Department of Justice is reportedly about to indict a former president and President...

    As Canada hurtles towards its worst wildfire season in history, a conspiracy theory has taken off online claiming environmentalists intentionally set some of the blazes. "I bet a good portion of the wildfires raging across the country were started by green terrorists who want to give their climate change campaign a little boost," Maxime Bernier, a former foreign minister-turned fringe party leader, said in a June 5 tweet. So far in 2023, Canada has seen larger wildfires than any previous year at this point in the season, with more than three million hectares burned. Tens of thousands of people have...

  • Greater Idaho Movement: Is This A Prelude to a National Divorce?

    Here’s an interesting one for you. The “Greater Idaho” movement, which advocates for several counties in Oregon to secede from the deep blue state and join Idaho, has sparked a passionate debate among residents and politicians. Supporters argue that secession would allow conservative-leaning counties to align themselves with a more politically compatible state, while opponents believe it would be detrimental to all parties involved. But this regional debate raises another issue: the possibility that it could be a precursor to a national divorce. A significant chunk of Oregon’s counties has signaled that they wish to leave the state and join...
  • Abortion Bans Are Driving Off Doctors and Closing Clinics, Putting Basic Health Care at Risk [Absolute BS Alert!]

    The rush in conservative states to ban abortion after the overturn of Roe v. Wade is resulting in a startling consequence that abortion opponents may not have considered: fewer medical services available for all women living in those states. Doctors are showing — through their words and actions — that they are reluctant to practice in places where making the best decision for a patient could result in huge fines or even a prison sentence. And when clinics that provide abortions close their doors, all the other services offered there also shut down, including regular exams, breast cancer screenings, and...

    Golfers who stayed loyal to the US PGA Tour, but not those who jumped to LIV Golf, will receive equity shares in a new for-profit entity, ESPN reported on Friday (Jun 9). Jimmy Dunne, a member of the PGA Tour policy board who helped broker the shocking deal between his group and the Saudi backers of LIV Golf, told ESPN that would be a way to reward players who stayed loyal to the PGA.Dunne, an investment banker and president of Seminole Golf Club in Florida, said PGA Tour members will get equity under a yet-to-be-determined formula in the new company...

    In his first interview since news of former President Donald Trump’s indictment in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s classified documents case, Trump attorney Jim Trusty openly mocked CNN anchor Kaitlan Collins over her reporting on allegedly “leaked” evidence against his client. The nearly 15-minute interview got testy at times, as Trusty pushed back against Collins’ many questions. (Video: YouTube) Trusty called the Espionage Act charge “ludicrous under the facts of this case,” and the false statement charges, “kind of a crazy stretch.” The lawyer then detailed his “theory” about the indictment. “I have a theory that maybe some of the outrageous...

    Number of fires rapidly increasing across the US, Canada, and Mexico.This is no accident, 95 fires now burning in the US, distributed across the country and the count is increasing. Unvetted foreign operatives, directed energy, or careless international smokers club meets gone bad? This isn't being reported for the scale and apparently coordinated execution plan in play. Is there enough firefighting capability to counter the situation as it now, or a couple of days from now?To call these wildfires would be naive.

    Joe Biden is to host the White House’s largest Pride celebration “in history” as Americans struggle to pay for groceries and mortgage payments as inflation continues to soar, not to mention the billions of dollars being sent to Ukraine. The LGBTQ+ Pride celebration hosted by Biden will be the largest of its kind “in history” for the White House. Biden is also set to announce new measures aimed at pushing transgenderism and other progressive ideology. Reuters reported that Thursday’s event is being billed as a celebration of” LGBTQ+ families” and will see performances from singer Betty Who and DJ Queen...
