  1. Ouch! NY Judge Arthur Engoron has handed down a $350 million (plus interest) judgement against Donald Trump in the New York State civil fraud case. His two sons were also fined and all three are barred from doing any business in New York for three years. To appeal the verdict, Trump must post a $350 million plus interest bond, if he can find anyone who will take the risk of a bond. Otherwise, Trump must front the full $350 million himself before an appeal can be filed.

  4. The National Council of Muslims and the 300 mosques and other Muslim organizations they represent say no MP will be welcome in their mosques or on their sites without them promising to restore funding to UNRWA funding, to call for an immediate ceasefire in the only place where Muslims are being killed by Jews (but not the ones where they're being killed by Muslims) and must condemn Israel's 'war crimes', (but not those committed by any of the other nations in the middle east). What they are demonstrating is they're not Canadians. Whatever is on their passports. They're not Canadians in spirit. They're still foreigners with foreign cultures and values. Foremost among them is hatred for Jews and Israel. And the more of these people we bring to Canada the more antisemitism there will be. Muslim groups say MPs won’t be welcome in mosques until they call for Gaza ceasefire | Radio-Canada.ca

  5. Why in heavens name would a Harvard professor, enlightened and progressive as they all are, need armed protection? Harvard is a place of tolerance and the free exchange of ideas right? Thats all true unless you're a black professor at Harvard and you discuss your research and it goes against the leftist narrative. Harvard professor Roland Fryer, who at age 30 became the youngest African American ever to be awarded tenure at the Ivy League school, has revealed he faced threats and had to get armed security after publishing a study showing no racial bias in police-involved shootings. His peer-reviewed findings challenge the claim, long made by activist groups like Black Lives Matter, that police in America’s “structurally racist society” readily resort to lethal force when dealing with black suspects. But what should have been an opportunity for academic debate, scholarly disagreement and controversy within a wider, ongoing public conversation, quickly degenerated into a concerted campaign to commit violence against Prof Fryer and his family. Leftists don't seem to care much for black people who won't stay on the plantation. https://freespeechunion.org/harvard-professor-needed-armed-protection-after-publishing-research-that-challenged-woke-orthodoxies/

  8. A federal appeals court has unanimously ruled that Donald Trump can be put on trial for trying to stay in power after losing the 2020 election, rejecting Trump’s sweeping claim of presidential immunity and moving the case one step closer to a jury. “For the purpose of this criminal case, former President Trump has become citizen Trump, with all of the defenses of any other criminal defendant. But any executive immunity that may have protected him while he served as President no longer protects him against this prosecution,” the panel of three judges wrote. “The interest in criminal accountability, held by both the public and the Executive Branch, outweighs the potential risks of chilling Presidential action and permitting vexatious litigation.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2024/02/06/trump-jan-6-immunity-appeal-denied/

I can also continue to ask people...'Are you better off now than you were during the Trump administration?' And ya know...the answer, more often than not, is 'No'. Oh I know that the more effeminate among us feel appalled...disgusted...with Orangemanbad. But he did provide a great economy, greater world peace and security and a controlled border. Brandon provided surrender of pretty much every issue to... Destruction.

If am going to have my rights stripped which I can easily survive with, I can't do so in good consciences, with crackheads left right and out of control crime. So, a thug can steal my car and get slapped on the wrists and I could get life for posting his picture and calling him a b**** and questioning his manhood? Yeah, okay. I am all for laws that protect against actual crime. Vagueness that leaves doors open for abuse, not so much.

  15. This is agree with. 1. Revenge porn/child exploitation/statements instructing a child to go and kill themselves etc should be off limits. 2. Misgendering I've seen classified as "hate speech" Certainly has to be a balance between obvious malicious attempts to harm which should be discouraged, perhaps even outlawed, and allowing room to debate without fear of the government showing up at your doorstep.

  16. I've noticed that a lot of the leftists here have lost their ability to communicate in English lately. I don't know if it's because watching Biden has somehow made them all even dumber, if their 7th booster shot has addled what few brain cells they have, or maybe they're all bots suffering from a computer virus, but whatever the reason, their words come out like they went through a blender. It's like if alpha-getti started making complete words instead of just letters, and you were trying to read from a bowl that was just stirred. .man orange Rape bad is a buthead you and MAGA $60 bajillion uninflation says ?what MAGGOT! You can tell that they feel like they're saying something really important by the general snottiness of their posts, but you just have to guess what it is. And it's not like it's ever that hard to guess. "I didn't click your links because I don't feel like facts are woke enough..."

  17. more ouch for the GOP investigation into the Bidens... again, Russia! Russia! Russia! attempting to help the Trump win an election. DOJ filing says FBI informant told investigators he got Hunter Biden dirt from Russian officials "During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about Businessperson 1,” the filing reads. Businessperson 1 is Hunter Biden." the fact that the GOP would even consider raw intelligence information from Smirnov show how partisan and open to foreign influence Jordan and Comer are on this file.

  18. What was extreme? To tariff China? To lower taxes to all Americans and enact lower corporate tax that had the effect to bring back corporations that were offshore? To say no to open borders? To enact a ban for individuals from problematic countries to enter the US? To make a deal between South and North Korea? To have no war for 4 years? To enact deals between Israel and Arab countries? Oh wait... I get it. He said things that were not politically correct, while the sniffer in chief that was instated back in 21 isn't able to speak a clear sentence. But hey, he loves the ice cream.

  20. Again, a real leader would have met with them, would have listened to their concerns and grievences, and tried to find a comprimise and solution. Trudeau is not a leader, he hid out with his sudden case of 'convenient covid' . . . the country and the world saw him as he really is . . . and the country is weary of him. Very weary.

  22. The buffoon is putting his ignorance on display again. The so-called businessman can only count monetary values, showing his total inability to understand govt is not a 'business' and neither is the military. He's a toady to what Eisenhower warned everyone about - the Military Industrial Complex. Where Raytheon and General Dynamics tell the govt what to do instead of you and Airbus and Embrauer get penalized for being "govt subsidized" where as Boeing's military contracts "are not" govt subsidies. He's also demonstrating the dangers of electing this oaf to office, He will - something neither his party came up with, nor it's supporters in their platform, just him. He will tell his Party what it's platform is, not the membership. And of course he needs complete immunity for any decision he makes as well.... The imbecile's latest statement that he would sell his own allies down the river makes the fate of Ukraine pretty obvious if he's elected. They'll no longer be a country but another Russian Oblast and Trump will dance about in glee claiming how he solved the problem, too thick and oblivious to even bear any shame like Neville Chamberlain. But it's yet another reason in the long, long list of why he won't be.

  23. The cash injection didn't really happen until Russia launched its all-out invasion of Ukraine. That woke people up and even Germany doubled its military spending while Sweden brought the draft back. You probably don't know this because the only news you ever get is from FOX and One America. The rest of your time is spent sitting in a corner crying because you're not an American.

  24. The same argument was made by Chicken Hawks like you in the 1970s about Viet Nam. We must protect the South from the Communists! Well no, we must not. This war was a big fat mistake, just like the Iraq War to defend the people of Iraq from Evil Saddam. We are not the saviors of the World. You are not Super Man, you are not even a soldier and never will serve in a war yourself. Get over yourself, you are not morally superior because you are for war.

  25. its an age old gag for "conservatism" in the US... that "conservatives" aren't conservative at all. they are just another vehicle for the richest of the population to get richer and a lot of it directly from tax payers. the gag goes like this... get people all riled up about some imaginary enemy ("social conservatism")... gays, "wokeness", immigrants, abortion. the issue doesn't really matter, it used to be something else, the actual issue can be switched on a dime. this works mostly with uneducated rural types. just keep repeating that they are in danger and they will believe it. now the center of the GOP support, the uneducated rural types are already pissed that they've missed the "american dream" economically because GOP policies mean they've been getting more poor for 40 years. they need someone to blame. get them to blame gays and immigrants! studies show that people who suffer more from black and white thinking lean "conservative". and so these people are targeted by the business status quo. Political Ideology and Black-and-White Thinking and then have a god like cult figure like Trump to push these people over the edge. a cult like figure that will attack the faceless evil. save the country from "wokeness". while only making them more and more... poor! Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (no Jobs there!) "under the Act individuals and pass-through entities like partnerships and S corporations would receive about $1.125 trillion in net benefits (i.e. net tax cuts offset by reduced healthcare subsidies) over 10 years, while corporations would receive around $320 billion in benefits. The CBO estimated that implementing the Act would add an estimated $2.289 trillion to the national debt over ten years" "Bloomberg News reported in January 2020 that the top six American banks saved more than $32 billion in taxes during the two years after enactment of the tax cut, while they reduced lending, cut jobs and increased distributions to shareholders." meanwhile, Democrats continue as always to support unions and working people. no one can point to ANY policy evidence that the GOP support working people. they only support business and promise "economic trickle down" except that that hasn't been working for 40 years. as a business owner here in Canada... Trudeau has not made it easy for me. because i control the corporation from which i make money, my effective tax rate went up from 8% to 11%. poor working stiffs have to pay a minimum of 17%! but i'm aware that the happiest societies are those where the wealth gap is smallest. Income Inequality Makes Whole Countries Less Happy and with that wealth inequality destroys democracies... because it leads to concentration of power.

  34. The Macdonald Laurier Institute did a survey and asked Canadians what they thought of the PM's woke beliefs that are being pushed onto us by the academics and unions and now the corporate elites. Surprise, Canadians don't approve! 85% are opposed to teaching children there is no such thing as biological sex. 92% don't believe in separating children in schools into 'privileged' and 'oppressed'. 70% don't agree that Canada is racist. Two thirds of Canadians oppose removing statues of Sir John A MacDonald. The same numbers oppose transgender women in sports And, when separated between Left and Right, the study makes it very clear it's the Left pushing identity politics and cancel culture. https://macdonaldlaurier.ca/wp-content/uploads/2024/02/20240129_Culture-wars-Kaufmann_PAPER-B-v2-FINAL.pdf

It's still mindboggling that in this age, with all the information at their fingertips and with no overwhelming reason like the debilitating recession last century, seemingly intelligent folks choose to turn their brains off, consciously and deliberately, and follow dumb, patently deceptive preachings a bombastic lying buffoon against all the facts and evidence from the reality. How do they get to it? What's the benefit, in mindless jumping and cheering? And they used to praise themselves on being critical and independent. Astounding. Just wow.

  41. Really? You've already discovered that they are spreading misinformation. You've already established that the Alam claim is false. But you're not sure what to do with their claim? Waiting for Trump to tell you whether it's raining or not? Perhaps try not feeding your confirmation bias with random YouTube videos and garbage news outlets. Ashli Babbitt played stupid games and won stupid prizes. You don't have to guess what happened to her. You can see the mob trying to smash their way through the barricaded doors to our elected officials. You can see her try to climb through the window. You can see her get shot. She wasn't murdered. She was killed by the officer in defense of himself and the lawmakers in his charge. If she were a home invader killed during a break in, conservatives would hail the shooter as a hero. "Good guy with gun stops attacker." But because she and the rest of the howling mob were trying to reach trapped lawmakers you want to call the assailant a hero. Figures.🙄

Just as planned, all cameras were on Biden faithful Taylor Swift as she kissed Travis Kelce on the field. Previously, Sneaky Joe rigged to become the most successful musician in the world. Beware MAGA! Sneaky Joe is coming. He knows what you’ve been doing on the Internet. He controls the Super Bowl! He got away with rigging a nationwide election without leaving a shred of evidence for Bumbling Trump to find. You may as well give up now.

  45. I agree somewhat but lets put this in perspective. CAF, Canadian Armed Forces is not just Army. Yes, there is a recruiting problem for the Army but, when I joined in 1969, the Army also had problems recruiting as did the Navy. The recruiter has always had problems getting people to join the Army and Navy. They pushed very hard for the potential recruit to join Army or Navy careers, especially to become a grunt or ordinary seaman. No disrespect to those that did but, foot soldiers and deck mates were not a very attractive career and are still not. The recruitment problem is now for the Armed Forces as a whole. The Air Force has taken to contracting out a lot of it. First line maintenance (on the hangar line) on most of it's fleet has been contracted out. Overhauls and repairs has been contracted out for decades. Hence, all the air force needs at this time is basically aircrew. (yes, there are still aircraft maintainers but they are small numbers and primarily on fighters, tactical helicopter squadrons and with maritime helicopters. As for the CAF, the entire leadership has become a political pawn for whomever is in control. Trudeau 1 and 2, as well as the conservatives in between did not respect the military and only when it was politically necessary did they use the military but, always to the benefit of the political agenda. The Military leadership is not leading a military but being subservient to political whim. They are ordered to follow or to enforce policies that are not "military" but social. The military is not a social organization and by making it one, less and less people want to be part of it.
