A China-based firm scored a $1B N95 mask contract with California. A document trove shows how.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom held back details from the public and lawmakers about a $990 million state N95 mask contract with a China-based firm scrutinized by Congress.
But now, a trove of 848 pages of documents is available to the public, obtained by government watchdog group Judicial Watch. The documents provide details on how the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services selected BYD to make 300 million face masks for protection against COVID-19, a virus that originated in Wuhan.
Earlier this year, state legislators tried to press Newsom to provide details about the deal, as one senior Democratic lawmakers called the deal "murky."
The troubling reason why Biden is so soft on China
In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China. The deal was later expanded to $1.5 billion. In short, the Chinese government funded a business that it co-owned along with the son of a sitting vice president.
The Democrats Are in Bed with China, Literally
The most shocking thing about the recent news story that flatulent Russiagate hoaxer and American-nuking enthusiast Rep. Eric Swalwell was caught intertwined with a Chinese honey pot is...well, actually nothing about it is shocking. This is totally on-brand for the Dems and especially this particular clown. It’s not clear how far he got with this Democrat-diddling doxie, but the best case for Swalwell is that he was a fool who couldn’t see how unlikely it was for a DC 8 (and real world 5) to want anything to do with him other than as a mark. The worst case is that he eagerly betrayed his country for a roll in the rice with this Beijing bimbo.
Biden Kills Thousands of Jobs, Hurts Environment, and Harms Relations With a Close Ally on His First Day in Office
Joe Biden used an executive order to kill the Keystone XL pipeline permit on his first day as president. The move, which was expected because Biden said he would do it, drew sharp criticism from Texas, where the pipeline would have ended in the Houston area.
How Biden’s 7 Economic Goals Will Destroy The US Economy.
Let’s look at what’s actually in Biden’s economic plan so everyone has their eyes wide open when they vote. Regardless of Joe’s past economic positions, the rapidly mentally declining 77 years old politician has been surrounded and endorsed by far-left activists including AOC & Tom Steyer who are guiding him to adopt their hyper green agenda.
Biden's 'open border' policy threatens economic, national security: Border patrol chief
Prior to President Trump's visit to the US-Mexico border Tuesday, the Border Patrol chief warned of the cost of President-elect Joe Biden's proposed reversal for immigration policy.
Mark Morgan, Acting Customs Border Patrol Commissioner, told FOX Business' "Mornings with Maria" that if Biden stops building the border wall "it's going to be part of a dangerous policy that's in place and our country will be less safe because of it."
"If you take away the ideologic, hyperbolic false narrative that's out there, that infrastructure works," he explained, "along with technology and personnel, and every single measure of success improves because of that and our borders are more secure and our country's more secure."
Most new Order of Canada appointees are white men, despite diversity-boosting efforts
Most of the new appointees to the Order of Canada in 2020 were white men, despite some progress made in boosting the diversity of the elite group.
Of the 175 people picked for the prestigious civilian honour last year, just over one third were women. About 7.4 per cent were members of visible minorities — up two per cent from the previous year – and 5.1 per cent were Indigenous, according to analysis by immigration and diversity researcher and former government official Andrew Griffith.
Velma Morgan, chair of Operation Black Vote Canada, called those figures "extremely problematic."
The “Participation Trophy” generation
A new study from the libertarian magazine Reason this week carried with it a pretty striking headline:
"65% of Americans Say Millennials Are 'Entitled,' 58% of Millennials Agree"
It seems that we have an entitlement issue with out young adults -- an issue even those young adults wholly admit to.
But perhaps nothing betrays this point like the following chart. Reason and pollster Rupe asked Americans whether kids who participate in youth sports should get trophies just for playing, or only for winning. A strong majority of Americans (57 percent) said only the winners, but then you look at the age breakdown.
Don’t Let the Race Baiters Divide Us
The America that I love, with all its warts and blemishes, voted for a black man to be our president 8 years ago and welcomed a black family into the White House. The America that I love, with all its faults and failings, reveres the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King and regrets the legacy of slavery and segregation. That same America is being torn apart today by race baiters and race agitators. We must not let them divide us.
We will always have racists and haters in our midst. We will always have provocateurs who feed on discord and strife. We will always have those who call for separation and division.
Lockdowns — For the Masses Only, Not Elites
It’s been obvious for months that "Wufluenza" lockdowns have been good for government bureaucrats. These "public servants" haven’t missed a single paycheck, while millions of taxpayers have lost their jobs and been thrown on the tender mercies of the unemployment bureau.
Many government bureaucrats are now working from home, far from the prying eyes of supervisors, and others are in the office but spared the inconveniences of dealing with the public, because the public is banned from those same offices.
Now we learn in California government bureaucrats have not only been getting their paychecks while taxpayers do without, the bureaucrats have also been getting their workouts while the rest of us are being conscripted into the couch potato army.

Sun-soaked vacations show why Albertans need recall legislation
Albertans have every right to hate the hypocrisy coming from United Conservatives who locked the province down and decided to vacation abroad.
The government just plunged Alberta into its second lockdown. Families spent the holidays apart. Businesses shut down and some may never again open their doors. Many workers are taking pay cuts to help keep businesses afloat and many are losing their jobs.
Although UCP politicians are urging Albertans to “stay home save lives,” we now find out that political staffers, MLAs and at least one minister have been travelling abroad.
Why Justin Trudeau Is A Perfect Choice For A Betrayal Of Canadian Society
Within its 153-year history, Canada has always been thought of as a democratic society. Democratic theory advances the concept that the will of the public is an essential component for the decision-making of a ruling government.
Unfortunately, when applying this to over five years of the leadership style of Justin Trudeau, a sad state-of-affairs is revealed.
In a similar capacity to his father before him, three term Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, our current PM eschews public opinion in favour his personal belief system.
In terms of specifics, Pierre Trudeau had a certain “complex” regarding the founding of Canada. His issue was “colonialism”— the usurping of First Nations land by European colonialists.
A ‘broken’ system: Canadians can’t afford lawyers but don’t qualify for legal aid
Legal experts say the justice system is failing Canada’s working poor, many of whom are unable to afford lawyers and end up pleading guilty or representing themselves in court.
All Talk, No Action! Canada’s civil legal (is calling it a “justice” system a lie?) system is broken (corrupt more like it)
Canada is consistently touted as one of the best countries in which to live, but it ranks an unimpressive 112 out of 190 countries according to the World Bank’s enforcing contracts indicator. For good reason: Our civil-justice system is on the fritz.
Litigating a civil claim (e.g. contract claim, property rights claim, etc.) can take many years and cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The “Pronouns” you can’t say in Congress
The House of Representatives hopes to rewrite the rules of congress in-favor of diversity. A step towards this was proposed by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and would remove specific terms like “male” and “female” in reference to a person’s genetic makeup and replace them with one that are gender-neutral.
No longer will individuals be referred to as “he” or “she”, but rather a generic term like “person” or “human,” if you will. This comes as more transgender and non-binary congressional candidates are being elected around the country. Pelosi cites the changes as a way to “make adjustments that reflect society’s evolving views on sexuality and gender identification.”
UN Agenda 2030: A Recipe for Global Socialism
Agenda 2030, touted as a solution to everything from poverty to global warming, is really a plan to empower a global governing body.
The United Nations and its mostly autocratic member regimes have big plans for your life, your children, your country, and your world. And those plans are not limited to the coercive “climate” agreement recently concluded in Paris.
California’s vaccine plan will prioritize Blacks and Latinos, among others. Here’s why
Take a look at California’s COVID-19 caseload maps, and it’s easy to spot where rates are highest: in some of the state’s most diverse and low-income communities.
The virus has ravaged urban centers like Los Angeles, infiltrated rural Imperial County and flooded the farmlands of the Central Valley.
But COVID-19 does not claim its victims equally. Latinos make up 40% of the Golden State’s population, but 60% of its COVID-19 cases and 48.5% of its deaths. Only 6% of Californians are Black, but 7.4% of COVID-19 deaths.
Now, as California plans to distribute an eventual vaccine to its nearly 40 million residents, the state intends to prioritize early rounds of the shots in the name of fairness for these communities disproportionately affected by the disease.
It’s not just race under consideration. The state is in early planning stages, but data like death and infection rates, along with housing status, age, economic stability, health care coverage and ethnic backgrounds could all play a role in who might be among the first groups to get vaccinated, according to the California Department of Public Health’s draft vaccination report.
New Law Requires Diversity on Boards of California-Based Companies
In a move that continues California’s push for increased diversity on corporate boards, Governor Gavin Newsom on September 30, 2020 signed into law a bill that requires publicly held companies headquartered in the state to include board members from underrepresented communities. The action follows passage of a similar law in 2018 mandating that public companies headquartered in the state have at least one woman on their boards of directors by the end of 2019 (SB 826), with further future increases required depending on board size.
The law significantly expands on the diversity categories included in the legislation as originally proposed (see our prior coverage of the draft legislation here).
Companies that do not comply with the new law, AB 979, will face similar penalties as those noncompliant with SB 826, the gender diversity law: fines in the six figures, in addition to ramifications to their brand and reputation. As with SB 826, the new law contains some open questions and ambiguities that may affect implementation.
Trudeau government’s ‘buy back’ gun program likely a multi-billion boondoggle
In his mandate letter to Public Safety Minister Bill Blair (pictured above), Prime Minister Trudeau gave the highest priority to prohibiting and confiscating “military-style assault rifles.” And this week, during a federal cabinet retreat in Winnipeg, Minister Blair reiterated the government’s commitment to the plan.
This program is being called a “buy back,” but actually it’s a mandated confiscation of legally-purchased firearms for which the government will compensate owners at a rate the government deems “suitable.” Only owners who can document their legal ownership will be compensated, and non-compliance will be a criminal act. Unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon is punishable by imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years.
Trudeau’s Toxic Gun Ban: No Buy-in to the “Buyback”
There is new evidence of problems with the implementation of the “assault weapons” ban imposed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on May 1st.
Readers will recall that under the Liberal Government’s scheme, over 1,500 firearms and devices listed in a government regulation immediately became a “prohibited” firearm or “prohibited device,” as did “any variants or modified versions.” Individuals in legal possession of these newly prohibited firearms or devices on the day the regulations were announced are protected from criminal liability arising from their possession or ownership, but this “amnesty” period ends on April 30, 2022.
Majority of UCP voters say Kenney must fire snowbird MLAs, 41% of Albertans say he must resign
A Mainstreet Research poll commissioned by the Western Standard says Albertans are far from satisfied with Alberta Premier Jason Kenney’s handling of the ‘Snowbird MLA Scandal.’
A total of 41 per cent of Alberta respondents say Kenney, former Minister Tracy Allard, and the six backbench snowbird MLAs should all resign, including 21 per cent of those who voted UCP in the 2019 election.
Another 27 per cent of respondents say Kenney’s actions to date don’t go far enough, and that he should fire Allard and the six other MLAs from the UCP Caucus. In fact, more UCP voters support the option of firing just the minister and MLAs (31 per cent) than Albertans at large.
In the wake of revelations of at least one pro-lockdown minister, six MLAs and several senior staffers found vacationing oversees, Kenney initially declined to discipline any of them, but increasing political backlash led Kenney to fire Allard from cabinet and issue relatively minor penalties to the MLAs. All seven MLAs continue to remain full members of the UCP Caucus.
Wildrose leader says independence movement is on the rise
The poll, conducted last week by Mainstreet Research showed 25 per cent supported Alberta independence, and 36 per cent supported Western independence.
Wildrose Independence Party Interim Leader Paul Hinman is hailing the results of a Mainstreet Research poll conducted exclusively for the Western Standard as evidence that the Alberta independence movement is on the rise.
The poll conducted last week showed 25 per cent of all Albertans favoured independence, and 36 per cent backing the broader concept of Western independence; figures that Mainstreet President Quito Maggi said have never been higher in the 10 years he has polled the question.
New COVID-19 testing rules for travellers to Canada to begin Jan. 7
Anyone arriving in Canada starting Jan. 7 will need to have a negative COVID-19 test before boarding a flight, the federal government said Thursday as the Liberals urged vacationers abroad to prepare.
Flyers aged five and up will need have a negative PCR test within 72 hours of their scheduled departure and must show the results to their airline before they board their flight.
Travellers who receive a negative test result must still complete the mandatory 14-day quarantine upon their arrival in Canada.
Either before or upon arrival, travellers will have to provide a quarantine plan for federal officials to review. If officials aren't satisfied, the government said people will be required to quarantine in a federal facility.
The statement that came hours before the start of 2021 said Canadians vacationing abroad should immediately start arranging for a COVID-19 test to avoid delays in coming home.

Recall effort against California Gov. Newsom passes 1M signatures
A grassroots recall effort against controversial California Gov. Gavin Newsom has collected more than 1 million signatures. Just nine weeks remain to get the final 500,000 signatures needed to force a Special Recall election, campaign leaders said.
“The people are being heard loud and clear, and it is not a matter of IF we are going to reach our goal necessary that will trigger a recall election of Newsom, it is just when we cross the finish line,” said Orrin Heatlie, the Lead Proponent of the official RecallGavin2020.com.
Video Clearly Shows What Liberals Actually Think About Black People
Filmmaker and journalist Ami Horowitz took to the streets of Berkeley, California to find out exactly what liberals think about black people. Spoiler alert: they think an entire group of people, based on their skin color, is incapable of doing the minimum of tasks required to live in a civilized society.
Horowitz then traveled to Harlem, New York and asked black people if any of these white liberal’s assumptions were correct.

What Life Will Be Like When the Democrats Win the 2020 Election
With no legal obstacles, the Democrats will be free to implement whatever they desire. The radical Democrats running for President are amazingly consistent in what they are calling for. Here is a short list:
Confiscation of privately owned vehicles.
Extreme climate change taxes placed upon the people. These taxes will be embedded into existing and future homes and when the homeowner cannot afford the taxes, they will forfeit their property. This will create the nation's largest slush fund in which the Democrats will fund single payer health care and free health care for all illegals.
We will see the reintroduction of preferential hiring for minorities in new affirmative action plans. Only this time around, the country will pay homage to illegals as they will go to the front of the line. It is about to get very expensive to be a citizen.
Canada’s coronavirus restrictions could last years even with vaccine: top doctors
Even if the global race to find a coronavirus vaccine succeeds, many of the restrictions aimed at managing the pandemic will likely need to remain in place for years, say Canada’s top doctors.
In a briefing with journalists Tuesday, Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam warned against basing all hope for a return to normalcy on the creation of a vaccine for the deadly virus.
“We’re going to have to manage this pandemic certainly over the next year, but certainly it may be planning for the longer term on the next two to three years during which the vaccine may play a role,” said Tam, whose comments come as new polling suggests some are wary of the potential shot.
Are Democrats the Party of Science? Not Really.
Almost two years ago, on a chilly February afternoon in Washington, D.C., Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma took to the floor of the United States Senate, skeptically muttered a few things about rising global temperatures, then threw a snowball. His point, if you can call it that, was that since frozen water vapor still exists in nature (in winter no less), climate change must not really be happening. Or something.
Combined with decades of anti-intellectual posturing and pernicious legislative attempts to hobble science education in America, outrageous displays like this, whether born out of willful ignorance or duplicitous political maneuvering, have rightly earned the GOP the title of anti-science party.
Canada begins vaccinating inmates in federal prisons with no active coronavirus cases
The first 40 federal inmates to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus in Canada were given their inoculations inside facilities without any active cases, Global News has learned.
That’s despite a number of prisons seeing outbreaks that have led to conditions that advocates call inhumane, while others also wonder why correctional officers aren’t being prioritized.
The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) began its vaccination pilot program for prisons Friday, with four federal institutions set to administer a combined 1,200 doses of Moderna’s vaccine in the coming days — enough to eventually inoculate 600 inmates.
Canadian Cop Threatens to Tase Hockey Player ... 'Get on the F***ing Ground!!!'
Cops in Canada descended on an ice skating rink, arrested a player and threatened to tase him ... and it was all captured on video.
Calgary cops claimed the game defied the law limiting outdoor team sports to 10 participants, with 2 meters separating them. There were 40 people at the game ... thus the violation.
Two of the officers approached one of the players, who ignored their orders to get on the ground. One of the cops knees the player, but he stays upright.
Why lockdowns alone won't save us from the pandemic
Lockdowns can control outbreaks of COVID-19, but only as long as public tolerates them
The prospect of locking society down again the way we did in the first wave of COVID-19 — and the collateral damage that comes with it — is daunting.
The financial devastation on businesses forced to close and lay off employees, the increase in mental health issues, the halting of elective medical procedures and the continuing risks to essential workers on the front lines all factor in.
Keeping society functioning and supporting devastated sectors of the economy while limiting the spread of the coronavirus is key to navigating the pandemic until a safe and effective vaccine is here.
But experts acknowledge there is growing resistance to some of the restrictions that highlights a need to manage the public mood as the pandemic rages on.
You arguably could not find a more politically charged term right now than "lockdown," since everyone has a different, personal idea of what it is.
Martial law in Canada: Raw footage from Quebec’s new COVID curfew
Premier of Quebec, Francois Legault, has introduced a COVID-19 curfew to help reduce the province’s rising case numbers. It went into effect this past Saturday Jan 8th. Measures include an provincewide curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. with exemptions for essential workers.
All “non-essential” workplaces and businesses including restaurants and gyms will be closed. The fine for breaking curfew will be $1,000 to $6,000. If you or anyone you know are issued one of these fines please head over to FightTheFines.com and we will fight your fine.
Masks for cows aim to filter burps to curb greenhouse gas emissions
A company has developed a burp-catching device for cows in hopes that the invention will help curb greenhouse gas emissions.
The U.K.-based startup ZELP — or Zero Emission Livestock Project — claims that its burp-catching masks will help slow the spread of greenhouse gas emissions, a key component in the force of climate change.
The mask is a muzzle-like contraption that monitors the percentage of methane being released by a cow. When the monitor detects an excessive amount of gas, it then converts the methane gas into water and CO2 and releases it from the device.
Cattle farmers Francisco and Patricio Norris designed the device to help slow down the processes of food digestion without the interference of feed additives that are commonly used, but are also a main driver in gas in their gut.
The tens of thousands of white people who rioted at the U.S. Capitol were reclaiming white supremacy
Let it be remembered that it was white people who were allowed to breach the U.S. Capitol during a joint session of Congress, white people who broke the building’s glass windows and rummaged senators’ desks, white people who laid violent siege to the seat of American democracy, white people whose attacks led to Vice-President Mike Pence being evacuated and white people’s violence that put the senate and house chambers on lockdown.
Tens of thousands of white people. Armed white people. Confederate flag-waving, QAnon poster-bearing white people.
Mostly maskless rioters on a day when the U.S. hit 21 million cases of COVID-19.
They weren’t just white people engaging in democratic protest. “An insurrection,” president-elect Joe Biden called it.
Whom are we kidding? What we witnessed today was an assertion of white power, a Trump-pumped MAGA crowd staking claim to power without care for facts or truth.
'Unacceptable': Canada public health employee took a trip to Jamaica, paid by Air Canada
The president of the Public Health Agency of Canada says it is “unacceptable” that one of the agency’s managers ignored advice andvacationedin Jamaica last fall.
Iain Stewart says although the trip taken by Dominique Baker in November was not related to her work for the federal agency, its employees are expected to heed the public health advice not to travel.
Baker has now removed a blog post from her personal style blog and videos from her Instagram account about an all-expenses paid trip she took to an expensive resort in Montego Bay in November.
But not before her bosses were alerted to the trip, amid a slew of stories about politicians and health officials ignoring the warning not to travel while theCOVID-19 pandemic continues to rage.
MLA Yao claims stress made him fall off the grid in Mexico
Tany Yao has apologized for being an MIA as the media and his party searched for his whereabouts.
The Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo MLA was one of 10 UCP members and senior staffers who jetted out of the province for warmer climes despite the province being in a full lockdown and health recommendations saying people should avoid non-essential travel.
But matters were made worse in Yao’s case when he went off the grid in balmy Mexico.
When the UCP snowbird scandal broke, suntanned MLAs and staffers quickly caught flights back to wintry Alberta. All, except, Yao, that is. The premier’s office could not find him for several days.
“I let my guard down with the discovery and release of the vaccine,” said Yao in a text message to the Fort McMurray Today, in which he claimed he had just turned on his phone.
I’m a Former Teacher. Here’s How Your Children Are Getting Indoctrinated by Leftist Ideology.

As someone who has worked in education for four years, I have seen firsthand how your children are being ensnared by the left and their teachers.

First is the propaganda. Teachers will assign work instilling the idea that the pillars of Western civilization were evil, and their memories deserve to be thrown in the trash.
Trudeau government to spend more than $88M on COVID-19 ads
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government is planning to spend more than $88 million to get its message out on everything from health advice to government programs related to COVID-19, CBC News has learned.
That’s on top of money that government departments have already budgeted for communicating with Canadians on other issues.
In fact, the $88.7 million the government plans to spend this year on communications and marketing related to COVID-19 is more than its annual budget for all subjects combined over the past decade.
Five Times Google Was Caught Red Handed on Bias and Censorship
Could Google swing an election? A string of leaks over the past four years suggests the tech giant has gone above and beyond to suppress conservative, independent media and the Trump movement.
Twitter has attracted much attention in recent weeks for its brazen, highly visible acts of censorship, including the ongoing censorship of the New York Post, and its repeated censorship of tweets from President Trump.
But Google’s bias, while less visible recently, stands to have a bigger impact on the 2020 election. As Breitbart News again highlighted last week, the company has erased Breitbart News results on Google search to the point where verbatim searches for the site’s headlines do not return results on Google search.
Americans Bought Approximately 21 Million Guns in 2020, Sales up 73%
At this point in December it is already apparent Americans bought approximately 21 million guns this year, an increase of 73 percent over the number purchased in 2019.
ABC News quotes figures from The Trace to report the estimated 21 million guns sold and claims the buying surge is the result of a “perfect storm” consisting of “the pandemic, economic recession, civil unrest and a divisive presidential election.”
They spoke to a mother of three named Trish Beaudet, who explained she has never owned a gun before but is now buying one for herself and one for her 25-year-old daughter.
Beaudet said, “I’ve never owned a gun. I’ve never wanted a gun. I’ve never had a gun in my home.”
She then pointed to the chaos in the streets and on the news, lamenting:

California Legislators Propose 0.4% Wealth Tax, Plus 16.8% Income Tax Rate
Not shocked yet? The newest tax some golden state legislators want to collect is a .4% wealth tax. The “leader” in state taxes already, this would be first-in-the nation wealth tax targeting the very wealthy. This isn’t on income they earn, mind you, but on their wealth itself. A summary of the bill says, “AB 2088 establishes a first-in-the-nation net worth tax, setting a 0.4% tax rate on all net worth above $30 million.” California Assembly member Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, proposed the legislation. The tax would be applied to the net worth of about 30,400 Californians, “raising approximately $7.5 billion annually,” the summary claims. “The tax takes into account all assets and liabilities held by an individual, globally, capturing the immense levels of accumulated wealth held by the top 0.1% of Californians.”
Overdose deaths outnumber COVID-19 deaths more than 3 to 1 in San Francisco
Drug overdose fatalities in San Francisco this year outnumbered COVID-19 deaths by a 3 to 1 margin, as deaths related to the powerful painkiller fentanyl rose.
In 2020 alone, 621 people have died from drug overdoses in San Francisco, while the number of coronavirus fatalities were 173, The Associated Press reported.
According to local reports from the San Francisco Chronicle, the city’s Drug Overdose Prevention and Education (DOPE) Project used Narcan this year 3,000 times from January to November to save people who nearly died due to an overdose of fentanyl or related opioid abuse substances.
Justin Trudeau and the Dismantling of Canadian Identity
Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, is a man with a vision for his country. What remains unknown, however, is whether or not Canadians share this vision.
Thus far in his tenure, Trudeau has been far more explicit about what he does not want for Canada than he has been regarding the kind of nation he envisions for our future.
One thing he does not want, as publicly stated shortly after taking office, is a Canada based upon “national identity.” This bold assertion, in effect, tells us Trudeau does not believe in a Canada defined by a national heritage developed over 148 years of history.
Trudeau Liberals’ fiscal update puts Canada on path of debt and stagnation
There was widespread, bipartisan support for large-scale financial support for Canadians amid the China Virus pandemic.
For example, before the Liberals had proposed sending out money to Canadians, I was calling for everyone to get $2,000 quickly, to prevent an economic collapse as the economy shut down.
Trudeau Liberals spending Canada into a massive hole
Canadians who have a hunch — because a hunch is all they’ve got to work with — that the Trudeau Liberals have been spending like spoiled, entitled legislators with no real idea how many billions they’ve sent out the door are unfortunately dead on.
The Trudeau Liberals’ spending is off the charts.
Study: Electric Cars Can Actually Do More Damage to Environment Than Diesel Engines
Another study has called into question the environmental benefits of electric vehicles, citing the amount of carbon pollution emitted when making lithium ion batteries.
Depending on where it is manufactured, an electric vehicle can emit more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than an efficient conventional car, according to data compiled by Bloomberg New Energy Finance and Berylls Strategy Advisors.
The problem centers around the development of lithium-ion batteries, which largely power electric vehicles.
It takes significant energy to manufacture these batteries, and the process can actually mean more carbon pollution is released if it’s manufactured in a country heavily reliant on fossil fuels.
A Las Vegas local shares how the city is handling holiday festivities during the pandemic
A city usually known for bright lights and booming nightlife is a lot quieter this holiday season due to COVID-19. Last year, according to Statistica, Las Vegas welcomed 43 million visitors. But this year, for the start of the holiday season in October, tourism occupancy was down to just under 2 million for the month.
With less tourism and a new convention and visitors bureau motto of “Stay Safe, Stay Open,” you may be wondering what practices Las Vegas has implemented to keep its tourism-dependent economy open for business this holiday season.
Here’s an overview of what safety measures you can expect in Las Vegas for the holidays.
Media Elites, Not Trump Supporters, Are Disconnected From Reality
With the end of Donald Trump’s presidency fast approaching, we’ve seen a surge of columns and posts asserting that Republicans and Trump supporters have lost touch with reality. After four years of marinating in “falsehoods” and “disinformation”—a term that really just means “information I don’t like”—Trump’s backers are all turned around, we’re told. They believe much that isn’t so.
David Brooks of The New York Times explains that these poor saps, most of whom, he says, are uneducated, uncredentialed people who don’t live in prosperous cities, have retreated to conspiracy theories to explain their misfortune and unhappiness. “People in this precarious state are going to demand stories that will both explain their distrust back to them and also enclose them within a safe community of believers,” he writes. Trump, QAnon, and Alex Jones “rose up to give them those stories and provide that community.”
Breathtaking Systemic Corruption During This Election
It's time for us to get mad.
This is what I came to conclude after spending the last several days puzzling over what we are seeing in the 2020 election. When Callista and I left the White House at 3 a.m. Wednesday I was confused by the various things that were going on and I couldn't quite figure out how to emotionally or intellectually deal with it.
How Democrats’ Attacks On The 2020 Election’s Legitimacy Set The Stage For Revolution
Democrats have been masters at messaging for decades. They focus on a single idea, they and their corrupt allies in the media magnify and propagate the idea, and then they all repeat it endlessly until it is accepted as fact. The idea Democrats are pushing today is that before voting has even begun, the 2020 presidential election is illegitimate.
Why are Democrats working to undermine the election, rather than working to win it? On the chance that President Donald Trump is re-elected, they are attempting to veto the vote and bring about revolution in America.
How Justin Trudeau Applies China’s Communist SOCIAL ENGINEERING Tactics Within Canadian Society
One fundamental difference within democratic and communist societies can be found within the spectrum of “demography”— the mix of ethnic and religious community populations within a particular society.
When observing historical dictatorships of modern history, we find a common phenomenon. For example, take the communist nation of China. In specious terms, if the government of China do not like a specific faction of society, they maintain an ability to decimate said community.
Likewise for individuals deemed “problem citizens” by government. Journalists who publish what the ruling politburo do not approve of will be thrown in jail. The European legal theory of “habeas corpus” — right to a fair trial–does not exist in China.

The independence parties and WEXIT
WEXIT was started by a small number of dedicated and courageous individuals who are determined to register- Western Independence – as a viable political option. Now months later, we embrace the growing momentum for change in Western Canada. The people of Western Canada have been disrespected and financially pillaged by Ottawa – they are tired, worried for their future and are demanding change.
We undertake to use our freedom of speech to express our disappointment with those political parties and leaders who are currently failing to represent the people of Western Canada. We undertake to monitor the new Independence political parties formed to rectify this problem. In Alberta through the “Wildrose Independence Party“ (formerly Wexit Alberta), in Saskatchewan through the “Buffalo Party “ (formerly Wexit Saskatchewan),and federally through the “Maverick Party” (formerly Wexit Canada).
Erin O’Toole walks back controversial comments about residential schools, but stops short of apologizing
Erin O’Toole is walking back controversial comments after being accused of using the legacy of Canada’s residential school system to “score meaningless political points.”
But the Conservative leader – who pledged to make reconciliation a priority should he form a government – stopped short of apologizing for suggesting the original intent behind the schools was “to provide education.”
Speaking to a group of young conservatives at Ryerson University in November, O’Toole claimed the Conservatives had a better “modern-era” record on residential schools than the Liberals.
“You know who opened more residential schools than Egerton Ryerson? Pierre Elliott Trudeau … Who closed that program? (Conservative prime minister Brian) Mulroney. Who apologized for it? (Conservative prime minister Stephen) Harper,” said O’Toole, who also said “lefty radicals” are “the dumbest people at your university.”
Bonanza is an American Western television series that ran on NBC from September 12, 1959, to January 16, 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC’s longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS’s Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set in the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family who live in the vicinity of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series initially starred Lorne Greene, Pernell Roberts, Dan Blocker and Michael Landon and later featured (at various times) Guy Williams, David Canary, Mitch Vogel and Tim Matheson. The show is known for presenting pressing moral dilemmas.
The title “Bonanza” is a term used by miners in regard to a large vein or deposit of silver ore, from Spanish bonanza (prosperity) and commonly refers to the 1859 revelation of the Comstock Lode of rich silver ore mines under the town of Virginia City, not far from the fictional Ponderosa Ranch that the Cartwright family operated. The show’s theme song, also titled “Bonanza”, became a hit song. Only instrumental renditions, absent Ray Evans’ lyrics, were used during the series’s long run.
In 2002, Bonanza was ranked No. 43 on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time, and in 2013 TV Guide included it in its list of The 60 Greatest Dramas of All Time. The time period for the television series is roughly between 1861 (Season 1) and 1867 (Season 13) during and shortly after the American Civil War.
During the summer of 1972, NBC aired reruns of episodes from the 1967–1970 period in prime time on Tuesday evening under the title Ponderosa.

Justin Trudeau invited China's People's Liberation Army to train troops in Canada, according to top secret documents published by Canadian conservative news site which claims 'they were sending spies not just soldiers to train'
'Top secret' government documents have revealed that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invited China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) to send its troops to Ontario for cold weather training and was unhappy when it was canceled, according to two Canadian media outlets.
The Canadian government's bombshell secret 34-page file was obtained by Rebel News and The Globe and Mail.
The two outlets published excerpts from the files Wednesday, revealing that members of the PLA were scheduled to attend a military exercise at a base in Ontario in 2019.
According to the memos, the training was then canceled by Chief of Defense Staff Jonathan Vance due to concerns that China could use the trip to obtain information from Canada.
UNIFORMED CHINESE TROOPS ON SALT SPRING ISLAND (VANCOUVER) B.C. CANADA
For many years, rumors have circulated about the alleged “massing” of Chinese troops, armor, and artillery in places like Mexico and Canada, being staged for a physical invasion of the United States. Most folks – even me – laughed these rumors off. I’m not laughing now . . .
Below is video from Salt Spring Island, near Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA. It shows uniformed Chinese military on a back road.
PM Trudeau commits $850 million to global fight against COVID-19
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says that Canada is contributing $850 million to the global fight against COVID-19, a commitment he made Monday morning during a virtual global summit focused on raising funds for research and development of vaccines and treatments for the deadly respiratory virus.
He called the funding “a beginning,” and vowed “more to come” as the international community collaborates on tackling the novel coronavirus that’s rapidly spread across the world.
“In the fight against COVID-19, our first focus will always be here at home, but this is a global challenge. To keep Canadians safe and restart our economy, we need to defeat this virus not just within our borders, but wherever it is found. That’s how we’ll beat COVID-19 for good,” Trudeau said, speaking about this pledge during his address to Canadians outside Rideau Cottage.
Trudeau pledges extra $400 million in humanitarian aid to fight COVID-19
The new money will go to "to trusted partners on the ground fighting COVID-19," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said during a video conference at the United Nations that he co-hosted with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Jamaica's Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
"From ensuring equitable access to vaccines, to providing more time for distressed countries to make bilateral debt payments, including Caribbean and small island states, we're working on concrete options that will help build a more resilient world," Trudeau said.
Quebec company with no factory snags $133M contract to make PPE
A company in Quebec has been awarded $133,486,868 in sole-sourced federal orders to manufacture PPE even though it didn’t have a factory in Canada.
AMD Medicom Inc. was given the ten-year contract and some MPs are now demanding to see the terms of the contract, according to a report by Blacklock’s Reporter on Tuesday.
“As small and medium-sized businesses we want to know, does everybody have the same opportunity to produce personal protective equipment and sell it, or is the federal government picking winners and losers” Jocelyn Bamford, president of the Coalition of Concerned Manufacturers and Businesses of Canada, earlier told the Commons government operations committee.
Records show Cabinet signed its initial agreement with AMD Medicom on March 20.
Here's a list of crimes on LA's new DA's do-not-prosecute list
George Gascon, Los Angeles County's new head prosecutor, unveiled an agenda Monday that will usher in changes to the local criminal justice system by his refusal to prosecute certain crimes on top of other sweeping changes.
Gascon, a former San Francisco District Attorney and former Los Angeles police officer, announced in a series of policy directives that many misdemeanor cases will be dismissed, saying that nearly half of those incarcerated on pre-trial misdemeanor offenses suffer from mental illness.
"Los Angeles County courts should not be revolving doors for those in need of treatment and services," one directive said.
SoCal restaurant owners defy orders to close despite regional stay-at-home order
Southern California restaurants are forced again to put a halt to in-person dining, but several are defying the region's state orders, with owners saying they'll go out of business if they follow the new rules.
Diego Rose, owner of Marla's Cocina and Catina in Beaumont, says his restaurant will be open despite a regional stay-at-home order that limits restaurants to only takeout and delivery.
"It's going to be business as usual for us, we've always been afforded the luxury to have the space to socially distance people," Rose says.
Rose says they try to sit most people in a part of the restaurant with roll-up doors, that he calls an outdoor patio.
New Party is Formed
Freedom Conservative Party members have overwhelmingly voted yes to merge with WEXIT Alberta to form the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta.
The FCP Constitution had a high level of member support required to merge the party – 75%. But the members were so in favour of this change that we met that high standard.
They have given the new party a clear mandate to keep on their mission of bringing all the parties that are interested in increasing Alberta Independence under one banner to work together.
The door is still open for other parties to merge with us as well, as part of the vote was to allow for extra board seats for new members. It isn’t too late for other Independence and Libertarian minded parties to join forces, prevent vote splitting, and have all our resources moving together instead of against each other.
Thank you, FCP members! We are dedicated to fighting to get Alberta exactly as much Independence as the majority of Albertans want us to have!
Please join us in welcoming the following FCP and WEXIT board members who are now forming the united Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta interim board:
Paul Hinman is back, again, maybe! Former Wildrose leader to lead new Wildrose separatist party.
Alberta’s oldest newly rebranded separatist party has a new interim leader, maybe.
A now deleted tweet from the newly renamed Wildrose Independence Party announced that former Wildrose Alliance leader Paul Hinman is the new interim leader of the party. Unless the party’s account was hacked, it would appear that Hinman is launching another attempt at a political comeback.
Should Western Canada SEPARATE To Cut Off Trudeau’s “Great Reset” Takeover?
Cultural Action Party do not deny that we spend the best part of our time predicting doom and gloom regarding the destiny of Canada. On the positive side, at least we express an opinion on where society is heading. Astute observers would do well to notice this is something that is never indulged by establishment media in Canada.
Western Separation–Some Benefits:
First and foremost, Justin Trudeau is no longer prime minister. Is this not the greatest joy since the invention of sliced bread? It is for CAP, as well as millions of Canadians who recognize the malevolency of our ruling government toward Western Canada, and its citizens.
Protest erupts in Senate after accusations against PM in We Charity scandal

CDC clarifies surprise guidelines that people without COVID-19 symptoms don't need testing
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention attempted Thursday to clarify controversial coronavirus testing guidelines published Monday that said people with no symptoms "do not necessarily need a test" even if they were exposed to an infected person.
The medical community criticized the agency's looser guidelines, which some scientists said had been made for political rather than scientific reasons. President Donald Trump has claimed that the USA's large number of coronavirus cases is the result of widespread testing, though that hasn't been supported by the number of deaths and hospitalizations.
Coronavirus: What's happening in Canada and around the world on Wednesday
Trudeau says any approved COVID-19 vaccine will be free for all Canadians
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday any COVID-19 vaccines approved by Health Canada will be free for all Canadians through the health-care system.
Trudeau made the statement in the House of Commons after being questioned by NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, who said Canadians are worried about whether they will have free and timely access to a vaccine against the coronavirus once one becomes available.
People with allergies warned against taking Covid jab after two fall ill
NHS England confirmed two of its staff members who received the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine yesterday suffered an allergic reaction. It is understood both are recovering well and the NHS says all trusts involved with the vaccination programme have been informed. Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for the NHS in England, said: ‘As is common with new vaccines the MHRA have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely yesterday.
Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Should Not Be Taken by Those With Significant Allergies, U.K. Regulators Warn
Initial doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine are being given in the U.K., and it appears healthcare workers are some of the first to receive it. Regulators have issued a warning to people with severe allergic reactions. Those who have suffered an anaphylactic reaction, like those who carry an EpiPen, should not take this particular vaccine brand after two National Health Service (NHS) workers suffered reactions.
Justin Trudeau is destroying Canada from the inside out
To adapt a phrase from Matt Margolis, Justin Trudeau is the worst prime minister in Canadian history. Like his American counterpart Barack Obama, he is both a know-nothing and a do-nothing leader and an unmitigated disaster to the well-being of his country. For example, Trudeau's unconscionably late and incomplete response to the COVID-19 pandemic — the "19" tells us it has been known for quite some time — much like Obama's delayed response to the H1N1 pandemic of 2009, and his determination to keep an illegal border crossing open, is only the latest of his ill-gotten political escapades.
California Rolls Out a Virus Exposure Alert Tool. Here’s How It Works
California is rolling out a voluntary smartphone tool designed to alert people if they have spent time near someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.
The rollout of CA Notify on Thursday comes as the nation’s most populous state grapples with rising cases and hospitalizations nine months after it became the first state to introduce sweeping restrictions due to the pandemic. More than 80 percent of the state’s residents are under orders not to leave their homes for at least the next three weeks except for essential purposes.
Many residents will get a notification Thursday inviting them to participate. The more phones in the system, the better the system will work.
Speakers’ Spotlight threatened after being caught up in WE affair: co-founder
A small business that used to book speaking engagements for Justin Trudeau and his family has been caught in the partisan crossfire over the WE Charity affair.
Martin Perelmuter, who co-founded Speakers’ Spotlight 25 years ago with his wife, Farah, says his company has been harassed and its employees intimidated and threatened since August.
That’s when Conservative MPs began publicly calling on the company to disclose speaking fees earned over the past 12 years by the prime minister, his wife, mother and brother — even though that would have contravened privacy laws.
In one Facebook post, which is still online, deputy Conservative leader Candice Bergen provided the company’s toll-free phone number and urged people to call to press the point.
Ever since, Perelmuter said Monday, his company has faced harassment, personal threats and a social media campaign he described as designed to discredit him and his wife and damage the reputation of their company, which was already struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trudeau Says He Sees No Path For Basic Income Right Now
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shared his thoughts about a universal basic income during a virtual town hall Wednesday, saying it’s an idea worth discussing but one the government isn’t itching to move ahead on.
The NDP have advocated the idea of basic income in the House of Commons during the pandemic, calling it a tool that could help eliminate poverty by ensuring Canadians have enough money to meet the basic necessities of life in food, clothing, and shelter.
New York’s Murder Rate Is Up. Way Up.
The New York Post’s Nicole Gelinas reports that after decades of Big Apple violent crime declining and staying flat, it’s going the wrong way fast.
Over the month until June 7 — including the crucial Memorial Day weekend — New York’s murder rate more than doubled, to 42 murders, from 18 the year before — a jolt of 133 percent. Shooting victims, including wounded, are up 45 percent. Stabbings are up, too.
To be clear: Going back to the early ’90s, New York has never seen a sustained increase of this magnitude. Nothing close: The nearest spike in the early summer month was a short-lived 63 percent hike in 2006, just half today’s increase. And that increase did portend an 11 percent murder hike for all of 2006, the second-highest in three decades.
This isn’t an aberration coming off a good spring. For the year, murder is up 25 percent. If these rates hold, New York would end 2020 with an increase in murders twice as high as we’ve seen since 1990.

Why Didn’t Bill Gates Vaccinate His Own Children?
All 50 states now require children to be vaccinated for multiple diseases before they’re allowed to begin kindergarten. California requires vaccinations before kids can attend preschool or go to daycare, with no religious exemptions allowed.
Connecticut forces parents to have their children vaccinated for an astonishing 9 separate potential illnesses.
Given that the vaccination issue now impacts all families in America, directly or indirectly, you’d think it would have garnered more media attention when it was learned that vaccine champion and Microsoft founder Bill Gates refused to allow his own children to be vaccinated.
This admission came from the Gates family’s personal physician in Seattle, who was speaking behind closed doors with other doctors at a symposium last year (someone at the conference leaked the conversation, so the doctor himself technically did not violate doctor-patient confidentiality rules).
Gates Vaccine Spreads Polio Across Africa
Microsoft founder Bill Gates has made himself the global vaccine czar as his foundation spends billions on spreading new vaccines globally. While much attention has been given to the role of Gates behind the corrupt WHO in promoting radical untested coronavirus vaccines, the record of the Gates Foundation pushing an oral polio vaccine across Africa gives more sobering evidence that all Gates says and does is not genuine human charity. The UN has just recently admitted that new cases of infantile paralysis or polio have resulted in Africa from an oral polio vaccine developed with strong support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It mirrors what happened in the USA in the 1950s. This is worth a closer look.
California Sheriff Says He Won’t Enforce Gov. Newsom’s Coronavirus Lockdown
In a video message to constituents, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco blasted Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) after the gov. threatened to withhold funding from counties refusing to enforce the latest round of coronavirus lockdowns.
The Sheriff accused Gov. Newsom of being both a hypocrite and a dictator and warned the gov. that he and his office won’t be “blackmailed, bullied, or used as muscle against Riverside County residents.”
“The dictatorial attitude toward California residents while dining in luxury, traveling, keeping his business open, and sending his kids to in-person private schools is very telling about his attitude toward California residents, his feelings about the virus, and it is extremely hypocritical,” sheriff Bianco said.
More Americans leaving California than ever before
Between 2007 and 2016, some 5 million residents moved in to California and 6 million people moved out to other states — a net loss of about 1 million residents. People making $55,000 or less a year were mostly moving out of California between 2007 and 2016, the report found, while people making more than $200,000 a year moved in, according to the US Census Bureau.

Eric Swalwell Outraged The Word ‘Woman’ Is Not In The Constitution. There’s Only One Problem
Do you know how many times the word “Woman” is mentioned in the Constitution?
That is unacceptable. Women must be equally represented and equally protected. #ERANow
— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) May 1, 2019
Yeah, except the Constitution also doesn’t include the word “man.” So instead of scoring points with women, all Swalwell managed to do was prove that he hasn’t read the Constitution and was too lazy to do a little fact-checking before firing off the tweet.
Trudeau's a globalist who supports 'The Great Reset'
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau clearly believes in the philosophy of “The Great Reset” espoused by the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Criticizing Trudeau for that doesn’t make anyone part of a right-wing conspiracy.
I’ve been to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in January as a reporter, where the world’s business and political elites gather in the luxurious ski resort of Davos, nestled in the Swiss Alps.
Founded in 1970 by globalist Klaus Schwab, a German/Swiss academic who’s still going strong, there’s nothing secretive about its agenda.
Global Elites Announce ‘Great Reset’ Plan—And It’s Even More Radical Than the Green New Deal
At a virtual World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting, global leaders from the United Nations, United Kingdom, United States, International Monetary Fund and multi-national corporations discussed and announced a plan to develop a “Great Reset” of the entire world economy.
“We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this [COVID-19] crisis. Its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change,” said Prince Charles, one of the leaders of the event.
The purpose of the “Great Reset” is to use the coronavirus pandemic as a justification—attendees repeatedly referred to it as an “opportunity”—to completely overhaul the entire global economy, including the U.S. economy, to make a more “equitable” world and to fight climate change, which was on numerous occasions identified as the world’s next great “crisis.”
Tory asks shoppers not to flock to malls, other retail stores ahead of lockdown
Mayor John Tory is urging Toronto residents not to rush to stores to buy non-essential items this weekend amid reports of large crowd scenes at malls and other retail shops.
"Everything that I have learned.. says that crowd scenes are a place where the virus spreads. Even if everyone is wearing a mask at the malls, it is still a threat," he said.
"Please stay home. People don't have to go shopping. Some people do for essentials but they don't all have to go for that today... I think a lot of the shopping being done is not essential."
Quebec to ban sale of new gasoline-powered cars as of 2035
The Canadian province of Quebec said on Monday it will ban the sale of new gasoline-powered passenger cars as of 2035, joining California and others in announcing moves to shift to electric vehicles and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Canada’s second-most populous province announced the ban as part of a $5.1 billion plan over five years to help Quebec meet a target of reducing its greenhouses gases by 37.5% by 2030, in comparison with 1990 levels, Premier Francois Legault told reporters in Montreal.
30 Good Things President Trump Has Done for America
President Trump receives non-stop criticism in the press. I agree that criticism is necessary when a president makes mistakes, but where are the voices expressing appreciation for the good things Trump has done? It’s unfair to always criticize and never recognize any of the good things a president has done.
It might be a refreshing change to recall some of the remarkable, nation-changing good things that Trump has accomplished for America. Here is my personal list.
138 things Trump did this year while you weren't looking
In Donald Trump’s first act as president, he signed a high-profile executive order intended to dismantle Obamacare, instructing federal agencies to take any measures they could to roll back the Affordable Care Act. In retrospect, the vaguely worded directive was only symbolic. The Trump administration did eventually make moves to obstruct the law, but they took months and another executive order to implement. For all the theater, it’s hard to say whether that order had any effect at all.
Trump – Existential Threat to New World Order
I believe most objective observers can agree, our President has been under attack from the time he announced his candidacy for president. While initially, those devoted to globalism thought of his run for the position as a joke, as the momentum for his election began to grow dramatically, Mr. Trump began to come under increasing attack as the desperation begin to surge in those who opposed all the principles for which he stood!
As a Christian, I see President Donald J. Trump as God’s gift to this nation, a welcome reprieve from the downward plunge into globalism we have experienced under previous administrations and I include both Republican and Democrat administrations.
Trudeau Is Trying To Build His Own ‘Basic Dictatorship’
You can see where the trend of government action is moving.
In politics, one of the most important things to look at is not just what a government is doing, but the trendline of their actions.
And with the Liberals’, the trend line is clear:
They are trying to turn Canada’s democracy into their own basic dictatorship.
On multiple fronts, they are seeking to weaken democracy:
They are trying to expand government control of social media.
They want to ‘register’ the media – a move made in Communist States.
They are withholding documents from the Opposition and shutting down committees at a record pace.
The Trudeau Government Is a Tower of Babel
The Trudeau Liberal government is a tower of Babel with all the Liberal elites facing inward in a tight circle babbling to one another. The members of this circle have no understanding of or interest in other Canadians. Sagely nodding their heads and murmuring approval, they are in complete agreement with all the government’s progressive left-wing policies.
From time to time, they widen their circle to admit some other select individuals, such as the Kielburger brothers of WE Charity, family members, and special friends, such as feminist and homosexual activists. Money flows easily and frequently among these individuals who believe they are entitled, since they are the ruling elites.
Newsom To Drop The Hammer On Suffering Residents With ‘Drastic’ Christmas Lockdown
Greasehead is looking to exact some serious punishment for ignoring his Thanksgiving decrees.
Democrat governors are flexing their muscles in advance of the coming spirit-crushing wave of holiday season lockdowns that will effectively cancel Christmas and suck the joy completely out of their battered and demoralized citizenry.
Spurned by Americans who refused to hide under their beds for Thanksgiving and who traveled and greeted families at traditional dinner gatherings in defiance of the so-called “experts”, the authoritarian leftists and their media toadies are itching to mete out punishment.
One governor who continues to set the trend for other Dem-controlled states is Gavin Newsom of California whose draconian Thanksgiving restrictions were straight out of the old Soviet Union and on Monday, he teased the coming Christmas lockdown.
Georgia Elections Officials Were Reportedly Filmed Destroying Evidence

Trump Attorney Phil Kline: Two Trailers Full of Completed Ballots Were Delivered to Pennsylvania from NY — One on November 4th!
Attorney Phillip Kline with the Amistad Project joined Lou Dobbs on Tuesday following the explosive hearing this afternoon in Arlington, Virginia.

Canadians divided over mandatory COVID-19 vaccines, priority inoculations
Canadians appear to be turning against mandatory COVID-19 inoculations whenever a vaccine becomes available, with a new poll suggesting the number of people opposed to the idea is growing.
The poll by Leger and the Association for Canadian Studies is the latest to take the public's temperature during the COVID-19 pandemic, and comes as governments and scientists around the world are scrambling to find a vaccine.
The issue of mandatory and forced vaccination in light of COVID-19
The issue of mandatory (and perhaps even forced) vaccination has increasingly been the subject of discussion due to the COVID-19 situation. Canada’s governments at the federal, provincial and municipal levels have violated Canadians’ Charter freedoms to move, travel, assemble, associate and practice their faith, in efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. Some government leaders have speculated that some restrictions on our Charter rights and freedoms will remain in place until a vaccine becomes available.
Can governments require a person be vaccinated, and impose sanctions if they don’t, or even forcibly vaccinate a person?
Here Comes The Flood: Justin Trudeau's Plan To Diversify Rural Canada With Foreign Immigrants
In 2019, the Canadian government announced that it is going to import over 1 million racially diverse immigrants between the years 2020 and 2022. They also announced a new immigration initiative called the 'Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot Program', or RNIP. The RNIP is intended to be the solution to something that Canadian government has considered to be a major obstacle to their plans to diversifying the Canadian population: The vast majority of immigrants that come to the country settle in just a few major cities, leaving small cities, towns, and rural areas largely unaffected by mass immigration.
This Democratic governor thinks his own Covid-19 rules don't apply to him
On Monday, California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that amid rising Covid-19 cases in his state that he would be "pulling the emergency brake" on reopening plans. On that same day, he apologized for, at best, skirting his own rules when it comes to mitigating the spread of the coronavirus.
The details are these: On November 6, Newsom and his wife, Jennifer, attended a 50th birthday party for political consultant and lobbyist Jason Kinney, at the uber-exclusive French Laundry restaurant in the heart of the state's Napa Valley. They were two of a dozen people at the event, which was held at an outdoor table in the courtyard of the restaurant.
California Gov. Newsom's Thanksgiving Rules Explained as Severe Restrictions Put in Place
Ahead of Thanksgiving next month, California Gov. Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released new safety guidelines for all private gatherings amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The new rules come with strict restrictions that aim to help reduce the risk of spreading infection.
"Gatherings are defined as social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place. When people from different households mix, this increases the risk of transmission of COVID-19," the CDPH said in a statement.
Health worker investigated after claiming coronavirus ‘is a load of bollocks’
A woman working for a major NHS provider is being investigated after claiming in a video shared on social media that coronavirus doesn’t exist. Louise Hampton, who works for Care UK, shared the clip on Facebook on Wednesday, claiming her service had been ‘dead’ throughout the UK’s Covid-19 outbreak.
640 Doctors Claim that “COVID-19 is a Global Scam”
It seems now that so many more people around the world are waking up to the reality of the current so-called coronavirus pandemic, seeing it as an obvious manufactured crisis aided with harsh government policies and seemingly totalitarian measures that are, ironically, totally unjustifiable and preposterously inconsistent. For example, on August 6, a website called Awakening Channel has published a video entitled “640 DOCTORS, CV19 IS A GLOBAL SCAM”. It showed an international conference of professional health workers and doctors joined also by online participants, talking about the current status of many hospitals and governments around the world in dealing with the so-called pandemic. Clearly, the official narrative of this pre-fabricated crisis is now turning out to be fake and many scams have been happening related to the responses and the policies of the many governments of the world.
California lawmakers travel to Hawaii despite COVID-19 surge and travel advisory
A nationwide surge in COVID-19 cases and a statewide travel advisory didn't stop a group of California lawmakers from flying to Hawaii for a four-day conference this week.
The annual policy conference hosted by the Independent Voter Project, a San Diego-based nonprofit group, has fewer people attending this year, but according to Politico, about 100 lawmakers and lobbyists from multiple states still made the trip to Maui.
Every County Sheriff in L.A. Region Declines to Enforce Gavin Newsom’s Coronavirus Curfew

What is an Accredited Investor in Canada?
In recent years, private markets have accelerated their growth curve despite the stringent rules limiting investment access to accredited investors or those individuals who meet the income and asset qualifications.
An accredited investor has access to a wide network of private investment opportunities with significant upside potential. But how does one know if he or she is an accredited investor?
The Ontario Securities Commissions or the National Instrument or NI 45 106 set the descriptions of an accredited investor in Ontario and other provincial securities commissions throughout Canada. These rules created advantages to investing in large-scale investments which are the driving forces of Canada’s future economic growth.
There are plenty of clauses surrounding the qualification of an accredited investor.

Rich folks are cut from a different cloth. There is no other way to wrap your head around splashing $295,000 on a car, even if it's a Rolls. But it's a drop in the bucket for them. How they spend the money is a fascinating study in human behavior.
With some of them, it's almost as if they don't know what to do with the money. In some cases, they seem to take their inspiration from the last movie they saw.
In 2013, Australian billionaire Clive Palmer was given the go-ahead to build the world's biggest dinosaur park. With a net worth of about $800 million (at the time), he planned to "build" 160 robotic replicas on the grounds of his Palmer Coolum Resort. He also had plans to build a real full-scale replica of the Titanic, dubbed the Titanic II.
How To Buy Canadian Stocks in 2020
Although it's easy to think of the New York Stock Exchange as "the" stock market, in fact it is only one of many. Many significant economies host their own stock markets, and typically more than one. The U.S. alone has 13 and, when measured by volume, investors generally hold that there are 60 "major" stock exchanges around the world. These include markets located in Tokyo, China, the U.K. and Europe.
One of the largest and oldest is the Toronto Stock Exchange, founded in 1852. If you'd like to trade on it, or simply buy stock in Canadian companies, here's what you'll have to do.

Democrat Voters Less Educated Have Lower IQ's than Independents and Republicans COMBINED! LOL!
"Democrats have the lowest IQ of the 3 parties" pewresearch.org/pubs/1478/
Here is the data on education which is highly correlated with IQ:
Not HS Grad College Grad & Post-grad
% of Democrats 32% 15%
% of Independents 22% 18%
% of Republicans 19% 23%
Here is the data on people who earn incomes over $75,000 which is also highly correlated to IQ:
Income under $75,000 over $75,000
% of Democrats 74% 26%
% of Independents 72% 28%
% of Republicans 57% 43%
Those are the facts. Many studies have been done on non-voters level of income and education; non-voters match independents exactly.
To recapitulate: The Republican average IQ is higher than non-voters and independents and all three are higher than the Democratic average IQ.
I was reluctant to publish this data because I couldn't figure out a way to substantiate it by survey research since it is well nigh impossible to test adults for IQ. I figured out how to do it.
Proposed IQ/political affiliation test: take a fairly stable city (low population turnover) with a representative population, such as Fresno, California. Go back to the Elementary Schools IQ tests of the early 1980s and then track down the students and look at their current party registration. The whole project could be done without any one person knowing the actual connection of the IQs and the final party affiliation. One person keeps the key to the school data secret but passes on the names and addresses to the person who leads a team to find the people and determine their party registration. A final person puts the names into categories without identifying the categories and gives the material to the first person to match the original IQ data with the categories without ever revealing the secret name/IQ data.
Such a survey could cost upwards of several hundred thousand dollars, but it can be done and I am sure it will substantiate my claim in this blog that Republicans are the political cohort that has the highest average IQ.
Democrat voters...Dumb As Fuck
Why Liberals Aren’t as Tolerant as They Think
In March, students at Middlebury College disrupted a lecture by the conservative political scientist Charles Murray because they disagreed with some of his writings. Last month, the University of California, Berkeley, canceled a lecture by the conservative commentator Ann Coulter due to concerns for her safety—just two months after uninviting the conservative writer Milo Yiannopoulos due to violent protests. Media outlets on the right have played up the incidents as evidence of rising close-mindedness on the left.
Why White Liberals Are So Unwilling to Recognize Their Own Racism
There have been a lot of disturbing poll results over the past several years, but none more than this one: According to a 2016 survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, 57 percent of white Americans believe that discrimination against white people is “as big a problem” in America as discrimination against minorities. Several months after the survey was conducted, of course, Donald Trump went on to win the presidency by getting well over half of the white vote. In a new book called White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, Robin DiAngelo examines how a large chunk of white America got to a place where it is constantly feeling besieged and victimized, and why she thinks even white progressives are so unwilling—or unable—to acknowledge their own racism.

Liberals and Progressive Socialists Are Ruining EVERYTHING
We talked briefly yesterday about how Minneapolis’ crime problems have soared since Ilhan Omar and the twin cities lefties started their ‘abolish the police’ effort.
And still-my friends- you’ve got all sorts of Biden supporters and democrats that are lying about how some of them want to abolish our police departments.
They are trying to reinvent history and continue to cover up the fact that-to this day-their socialist progressive activists want to-abolish-
Abolish- our police departments. Just like the want to abolish ice.
Ilhan Omar has said it repeatedly- and recently: the Minneapolis police department is a cancer that needs to be cut out completely. Abolished. Only then, can a lovely, community wide kumbaya moment occur...
Why Liberals are Dangerous
The Left (liberal mainstream media) practically had a ticker tape parade for Ohio Gov. John Kasich for answers he gave on two issues during the GOP debate. Liberals' praise of Kasich shows they have chosen emotion over logical, reasoned thinking. This makes liberals irresponsible and dangerous. These people must never be in charge.
The Left praised Kasich for his entitlement program that is $1.4 billion in the red, thus far -- in only 18 months. Kasich defended his program saying it was the Christian thing to do.
11 Trillion Reasons To Fear Joe Biden's Presidency
By my calculation, there are at the very least 11 trillion reasons to worry about Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden. He's the odds-on favorite to beat incumbent Donald Trump on November 3. Not only is the former vice president likely to win, but FiveThirtyEight predicts Democrats have a 74-in-100 chance of taking the Senate while holding the House of Representatives, meaning that he will have a great opportunity to deliver on all of his campaign promises, which add up to a mind-blowing total of $11 trillion in new federal spending over the coming decade. His "platform is more liberal than that of every past Democratic nominee," writes The Washington Post.
