Trudeau Welcomes ISIS Fighters
Justin Trudeau tells Hamilton town hall Canadians can feel safe despite returning ISIS fighters
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a Hamilton town hall Wednesday that despite concerns over returning ISIS fighters, Canadians were safe in their country and could rely on the security and intelligence services to keep them that way.
As the war against ISIS winds down, the government has said it’s aware of about 180 individuals “with a nexus to Canada” who had travelled overseas to join ISIS and other groups — and another 60 who had returned to Canada.
Unlike Canada’s allies in Iraq and Syria, who are directly targeting their own ISIS fighters before they can return to their countries in the West, Canada’s Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said “Canada does not engage in death squads.”
Forget peoplekind, Trudeau’s ISIS comments are the real problem
By now, most of the English-speaking world has heard about Justin Trudeau’s “peoplekind” gaffe. And while the international media poked fun at our Prime Minister for his over-the-top political correctness, Trudeau managed to avoid scrutiny for another disturbing comment made on the same speaking tour.
At a town hall forum in Edmonton, a man in the audience asked Trudeau about his stance on ISIS terrorists returning to Canada.
Trudeau has pledged taxpayer funds to “de-radicalize” these terrorists, and has even claimed that ISIS members could become “an extraordinarily powerful voice.”
Trump Administration, Reversing Trend, Sheds 11,000 Federal Employees in Six Months
The Trump administration has shed nearly 11,000 federal employees during its first six months, reversing a two year trend of gains throughout the executive branch.
A July jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday showed non-postal federal agencies employed 2,188,900 workers at the end of the month, down 2,200 from June and 10,700 from January, when Trump took office. President Trump has prioritized shrinking the civilian workforce, issuing an executive order — and follow up guidance through the Office of Management and Budget — calling on agencies to develop short and long-term strategies to cut employees
