“Early internet rumors had blamed Trump for the Quebec shooting, with anti-Trumpers claiming his “rhetoric” had caused white supremacists to storm the mosque… Many circulated the fake news rumor that the shooters had yelled ‘Make America great again!’ or ‘Go Trump!’ during the rampage… (American) actor Kumail Nanjiani initially blamed Trump for the terrorist attack before deleting the tweet… Nanjiani suggested that if the United States doesn’t let Muslims in, they will turn into terrorists… Reuters even tweeted a fake news report blaming ‘white supremacists’ David Aurine and Mathieu Fournier for the shooting.” – teaparty.org, “Terror hits Canada!

“Australia’s federal government has revealed plans to draw up a list of sensitive ‘red flag’ assets which could be off-limits to foreign investors or may involve extra vetting before sales proceed… The list will be compiled by a new agency, the Critical Infrastructure Centre, which will assess ports, power stations and other major assets to consider threats such as sabotage or espionage… The move follows recent concerns over investments in major infrastructure and property assets by Chinese companies.” – Jonathan Pearlman, “Canberra launches new agency to help vet ownership bids, amid national security concerns over recent Chinese investments” – Straits Times, Jan. 24th, 2017.
The following is the text of a letter-to-the-editor I sent in which was published today on the Canada Free Press website.
Re: “Mexican President demands ‘respect’ from Trump, threatens to cancel meeting – Trump calls his bluff”
“I am little surprised that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto subsequently cancelled his scheduled visit with Donald Trump. The bottom line is that the porous southern border of America, combined with eight years of Barack Obama’s deliberate failure to protect it, has enabled Mexico to offload its surplus population onto the United States, thus saving itself massive welfare, housing, and other costs, which have effectively been transferred to the American taxpayer. Mexican consulates in the U.S. have for years routinely provided legal and other assistance to Mexican illegals threatened with deportation (here and here), thus demonstrating the huge benefits to Mexico in shipping its surplus population elsewhere so that it can become someone else’s problem. Donald Trump is now going to put a stop to that.”

“I coined the phrase (virtue signalling) in an article here in the Spectator in which I described the way in which many people say or write things to indicate they are virtuous. Sometimes it is quite subtle. By saying that they hate the Daily Mail or UKIP (UK Independence Party), they are really telling you that they are admirably non-racist, left-wing or open-minded… One of the crucial aspects of virtue signalling is that it does not require actually doing anything virtuous. It does not involve delivering lunches to elderly neighbours or staying together with a spouse for the sake of the children. It takes no effort or sacrifice at all…” – James Bartholomew of the Spectator, quoted by Jerry Agar in “No virtue in left-wing signals” – Toronto Sun, Jan 16th, 2017.
The following five quotes are all taken from Joe Kovacs’ article “Secret Service ‘opens investigation’ into Madonna threat” – WND, Jan. 23rd, 2017 (*).
“Madonna hasn’t been right for I don’t know how long. The needle (is) not pointing north there, either. The elevator doesn’t go to the top floor. Madonna’s always been an order of fries short of a Happy Meal, if you ask me.” – Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.
“The Secret Service doesn’t have the luxury of dismissing a threat just because you recorded a pop song 20 years ago… These radical liberals, they are the most violent, intolerant people on the planet. It has become acceptable in the media and amongst the cultural elites to violently threaten your political opponents. It’s disgusting.” – Dan Bongino, former Secret Service agent.

This will probably be the last post of this type, as commentators are now becoming speculative, and “protests” have become so common as to be of interest only in the overall sense.
“Furor has arisen over President-elect Donald Trump’s charges that our intelligence agencies are politicized… Spare us the outrage. For decades, directors of intelligence agencies have often quite inappropriately massaged their assessments to fit administration agendas… Careerists at these agencies naturally want to continue working from one administration to the next in ‘the king is dead; long live the king!’ style. So they make the necessary political adjustments, which are sometimes quite at odds with their own agency’s findings and to the detriment of national security. The result is often confusion – and misinformation passed off as authoritative intelligence.” – Victor Davis Hanson, “It’s no revelation that intelligence agencies are politicized” – RealClear Politics, Jan. 19th, 2017.
I was disgustingly pleased to watch the Donald Trump inauguration ceremonies on television, although I must admit that I switched off my TV when it was announced that a Rabbi was about to speak. I’m sure Jews have as much right as anyone to express their opinions about Trump’s election, but I am so used to Jewish opportunistic twisting of anything major that happens that the announcement switched me off as conclusively as it did my TV.
And perhaps this should turn me off Donald Trump as well, as his family’s Jewish connections are such that daughter Ivanka Trump had to obtain a special rabbinical dispensation to take a car home after dark on Friday (Sabbath) following the inauguration festivities in order to avoid the risk of walking home through Washington DC at night (1). It is also worth noting that her husband, Jared Kushner, has been appointed Trump’s senior advisor…

“Heres what we know, that white boy called them the N word and my sistas and brothas all had ptsd from gun violence and institutionalized racism. So they reacted to a hate crime they didn’t start it.” (Emphasis in original) – Quoted by Western Voices World News on Jan. 7th, 2017; the original “Free Brittany Herring” Facebook page appears to have been taken down.
