‘Activists Behind Illegal Camps’

May 24, 2017

This politically-designed camp by people from outside our community was set up for the media. It’s not a response to the true need of the local population.

This travelling circus is dangerous to those both inside and near it – we’re going to move Heaven and Earth to shut it down before anyone gets hurt.” 

“Two B.C. municipalities were in court last week, trying to get injunctions against new tent camps that are trying to get established in their communities. (more…)

‘Government Aiding Hard Drug Dealers’

May 15, 2017

‘Vancouver’s drug strategy has been a disaster. Be very wary of emulating it’: 

“Last week, Edmonton city hall voted 10-1 in favour of building not just one “safe consumption” site for drugs, but four of them — all within walking distance of one another in one of the city’s lowest-income urban districts.

“The decision was made despite the fact that more than 80% of Edmonton’s fentanyl-related overdoses are occurring in the suburbs — well beyond the reach of the new facilities. The move also ignores fervent pleas from locals, who claim that approving four drug consumption sites will be a death sentence for their already-chaotic and drug-ridden neighbourhood.

“And honestly, it’s hard to see how the locals are wrong. While the strategy of harm reduction can indeed save the lives of addicts in the short term, it can destroy communities if used in isolation.

“These unhappy results can be seen a province away. Vancouver is into its second decade of dealing with an injected-drug crisis. The city has been concentrating more and more services in its Downtown Eastside. The result? Everything seems to be getting worse (more…)

‘Undermining Our Culture’

May 10, 2017

“Had to post this. I think disappointed is an understatement. This will be the first year that we don’t get gifts crafted with love from our kids, and since we only have one little one now, it makes it all that much worse. I don’t understand why we, as Canadians, need to give up our traditions that have been passed through generations. I welcome all races and ethnicities, but forcing us to give up things that are important to us as Canadians is crap. And it doesn’t even have anything to do with religion! You can’t celebrate your Mom and Dad?”

— Roy Glebe

“A school in Canada has cancelled Mother’s Day, sending students home with a note to explain why. The note, which was given to Grade One and Two students at Albert McMahon Elementary School, Mission, British Columbia, revealed the school body made a decision to not celebrate Mother’s or Father’s Day this year.

“The note explained that the decision had been made in a bid to ensure that all students, including those without traditional nuclear families, felt ‘positive’ about their own family arrangements, whatever they may entail. (more…)

‘More Fascist-Left Speech Repression’

April 14, 2017

“The violence and brutalization of political opponents is a new phenomenon in American politics, but it is becoming increasingly common, and it has a historical antecedent: the Nazi ‘Brownshirts’. In “The Coming of the Third Reich”, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts)

“organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

“To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).

“That is just the kind of public arena that the Left has been trying to bring to the United States for years — particularly on college campuses. (more…)

‘Rumblings in Russia’

“After the largest demonstrations in years erupted across the country on Sunday, the Kremlin is fighting back…

“Over the weekend, the mayor’s office warned people that protestors alone would bear the responsibility for any consequences of attending what they deemed an illegal demonstration. But despite those warnings and despite the fresh memory of some three dozen people being charged—many of whom did prison time—for a protest in May, 2012 that turned violent, thousands came out in Moscow.

‘Venezuela: The Fruits of Socialism – Update’

March 22, 2017

“Facing a bread shortage that is spawning massive lines and souring the national mood, the Venezuelan government is responding this week by detaining bakers and seizing establishments.

“In a press release, the National Superintendent for the Defense of ‘Socioeconomic Rights’ {!?!} said it had charged four people and temporarily seized two bakeries, as the socialist administration accused bakers of being part of a broad “economic war” aimed at destabilizing the country.
{Of course. The Bolsheviks used the same excuse in 1918…} (more…)

‘Champagne Socialism Pays Off’

‘Champagne socialism pays off as Sanders buy a third home’

berniehome

“As his campaign for President gathered steam, Sen. Bernie Sanders went on ‘CNBC’ and challenged the business news network’s audience.

“You can’t just continue growth for the sake of growth in a world in which we are struggling with climate change and all kinds of environmental problems. All right?” he said. “You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country. I don’t think the media appreciates the kind of stress that ordinary Americans are working on.”

“What a surprise, then, to learn last week that the Bern and his wife, Jane, have determined that what they need is a third piece of residential real estate. (more…)

‘Communism’s Revenge?’

August 1, 2016

‘The Communist Past of the Woman Drowning Europe in Muslim ‘Refugees’

Merkel-Communist(800)

“Angela Merkel played a far greater role in the brutal Communist East German dictatorship than was ever imagined. That’s the conclusion of a biography…by historian Ralf Georg Reuth titled “The First Life of Angela M.”

“According to research by Reuth, Merkel was a professional cadre in the Communist Party of East Germany, where she worked for the ‘Academy Of Science’ and held a leadership position in charge of of the mobilization and propaganda of the ‘Communist Youth League’ between 1981 and 1989, when – to her horror – the Berlin Wall came down.

‘Venezuela: The Fruits of Socialism’

June 24, 2016

“We like to think that progress is irreversible. We look at our roads and supermarkets and hospitals and while we know that everything could be better, we rarely worry it will all collapse. Unhappily, right now Venezuela is proving that all of this can suddenly disappear, and it’s frightening.

“The country is falling apart, rapidly and completely. By many measure, it is one of the most blessed nations in the Americas. It has the largest proven oil reserves in the world, almost twice Canada’s. It has rich agricultural land, incredible biodiversity and huge amounts of mineral wealth.

“And yet, its people are now starving; its infrastructure is in tatters; law and order have broken down. And strangely, Canada doesn’t appear to care.
