Liberal Socialism Destroys Venezuela – Activist Judge
Escape From Venezuela: Failed Socialist Experiment Has Destroyed Law And Order, ‘Thugs’ Stealing Kids’ Lunches
Facing a disastrous economy and growing political opposition, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro recently declared a 60-day state of emergency, which will most likely be used to stifle those rallying for his immediate recall. No, scratch that—that’s exactly what it’s going to be used for, as the Supreme Court and the election committee is pro-Maduro (via the Guardian):
Police have fired teargas at protesters calling for the resignation of the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, and shut down swaths of central Caracas to control the demonstrations, as the Caribbean nation slid deeper into political crisis.
Wednesday’s protests came the day after Maduro said the opposition-controlled parliament had become irrelevant and predicted that it might soon “disappear”, as his political enemies upped pressure for a referendum to force the leader from office.
Chief Justice says Canada attempted ‘cultural genocide’ on aboriginals
Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin says Canada attempted to commit “cultural genocide” against aboriginal peoples, in what she calls the worst stain on Canada’s human-rights record.
Genocide – an attempt to destroy a people, in whole or part – is a crime under international law. The United Nations’ Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, adopted in 1948, does not use the phrase “cultural genocide,” but says genocide may include causing serious mental harm to a group.

Kathleen Wynne slams Donald Trump as ‘dangerous for Canada’
Donald Trump is a danger to Canada and the world, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said in Washington on Thursday in an unusual foray into a foreign election.
“I think that a candidate for the presidency of the United States who is intent on being divisive, who is intent on ignoring the realities of the global economy, and doesn’t see the benefit of an inclusive, pluralistic society – I think it’s very dangerous for Canada, and I think it’s dangerous for the world,” Wynne said in an interview at the Canadian embassy.
A Trump presidency would be “destabilizing for the continent,” she said, “but it would go well beyond the continent.”
