Notley slams Quebec’s ban on covered faces

by James Wood, Calgary Herald   Premier Rachel Notley had harsh words Friday for Quebec legislation that takes aim at Muslim women who cover their faces for religious reasons. Bill62, which was adopted in the Quebec legislature Wednesday, bans people with their faces covered from providing or receiving public services in the province and is widely seen as an attack on Muslim women who wear the niqab.

Silverglate: How Robert Mueller Tried To Entrap Me

By Harvey Silverglate Is special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, appointed in mid-May to lead the investigation into suspected ties between Donald Trump’s campaign and various shady (aren’t they all?) Russian officials, the choirboy that he’s being touted to be, or is he more akin to a modern-day Tomas de Torquemada, the Castilian Dominican friar who was the first Grand Inquisitor in the 15th Century Spanish Inquisition? Given the rampant media partisanship since the election, one would think that Mueller’s appointment would lend credibility to the hunt for violations of law by candidate, now President Trump and his minions....

Free Trade Deal Is A Ruse For Chinese Communists To Take-Over Canada

by Brian Wiggins The Canadian Government is feverishly working, behind the scenes, and, according to the polls, against the wishes of the Canadian people, to close a trade deal with China. Canadians don’t want any truck or trade, free or bilateral, with the communists in Beijing. It will be anything but free. The new Chinese Ambassador to Canada, Lu Shaye, comes straight from the Communist Party’s Central Committee. He wants a free trade deal with Canada but only on China’s terms. Shaye demands that its state owned enterprises (SOEs) be granted rights to acquire any Canadian resources or corporate...

Europeans The Greatest In Everything Since The Beginning

by Ricardo Duchesne Republican representative Steve King ignited a hysterical backlash in the summer of 2016 when he modestly asked, in response to a journalist who made a comment about “old white people” making up the majority of the GOP: Where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you’re talking about?
