Trump Derangement Syndrome vs Trudeau’s Derangement
An 87-year-old’s obituary said Trump ‘hastened’ her death. A local paper wouldn’t run it.
Frances Irene Finley Williams felt the same way about dress codes at funerals as she felt about politics: strongly.
So when she died just before Thanksgiving at age 87, her family members thought they would make politics a part of her obituary. It was only natural, said her daughter, Cathy Duff. Williams and her husband, Bruce, 92, were the kind of couple who woke up with the Louisville Courier-Journal and USA Today and went to bed switching channels between CNN and the local news. She was a bridge-playing, churchgoing, Elvis Presley- and Willie Nelson-loving political junkie who “did not take gladly to fools,” a “very, very spirited woman” who sometimes said that her frustration about President Trump was killing her — “contributing to her decline,” as Duff put it.
The seven stages of Trump Derangement Syndrome
Donald Trump’s election in 2016 upset the Washington, D.C. apple cart – bigly! Not only were his detractors, critics, and opponents adversely triggered by the stunning defeat of Hillary Clinton, but they continue to wallow miserably in the Seven Stages of Trump Derangement Syndrome. And unlike the seven stages of grief, the ill effected show no signs of recovery or acceptance.
The first stage: Shock and Disbelief. Who can forget the graphic images of Hillary supporters crying, wailing, and curled up in the fetal position? The anguish was palpable as the media broadcast historic news: the anointed queen was defeated, and a most unlikely usurper was basking in the limelight. It was unimaginable, and yet Donald Trump pulled it off
Trudeau’s neglect of the nation has led us to this place
Dark resentments thought buried in this part of the country have been reawakened
In an astonishing statement to the New York Times in 2015, Justin Trudeau declared, “There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada,” and consequently that “makes us the first post-national state.”
This kind of talk would have been horrifying to Peter Lougheed, Alberta’s premier from 1971 to 1985. He believed in Canada. He had faith in our national institutions. But the intransigence of the federal government led by Pierre Elliot Trudeau tested that faith.
Justin Trudeau is waging a phony war against inequality
The disjuncture between Trudeau’s rhetorical flourishes and his actions speaks volumes
It wasn’t the first time Canada’s 23rd prime minister had raised these issues with an international audience. Last year Trudeau made similar remarks to a dinner for civic and business leaders in Hamburg. “When companies post record profits on the backs of workers consistently refused full-time work – and the job security that comes with it – people get defeated,” he said. “And when governments serve special interests instead of the citizens interests who elected them – people lose faith.”
CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of ‘white privilege’ before learning he’s black
t was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday.
Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of “white privilege” during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news.
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” Webb said.
The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job.
The UN Wants to be Our World Government By 2030
In the 1960s, an informed but naïve undergraduate, I was walking across the campus of the University of Pennsylvania with the Chairman of the Chemistry Department, Prof. Charles C. Price. He told me that he was president of the United World Federalists, and asked if I knew what that organization was. When I said that I did not, he replied that they believed in a one-world government that would grow out of the United Nations. I was nonplussed as I had never heard anyone suggest that idea before. I imagined the UN as a kind of United Way on a worldwide scale.
