Father has a right to be furious

A Mississauga Ontario father recently took his 3-year-old son to a pool for his weekly swimming lesson. When the little boy removed his top, his father noticed that he had a heat rash on his chest. The lifeguard noticed it too although the pool employee thought that the marks on the child’s chest might have been as a result of the boy having been abused. In a rush to determine whether or not there actually was abuse, the lifeguard and the pool director took the 3-year-old away from his father and grilled the little tyke until they got the boy to say that his mother had hit him.

Exploiting the innocence of Winnie the Pooh

imageRichard Danzig, Navy Secretary under President Bill Clinton, now touted as National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, is not the only one ready to exploit Winnie-the Pooh.

Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”

Now the criminal element in Japan, becoming somewhat extrovert, is exploiting Winnie the Pooh.

Caught up in the paper chase, Canada Free Press (CFP) was meandering off track until faithful readers brought us back into line.

When The Environmentalists Plan…Your Money and Your Freedom Are In Grave Peril

All across America, Canada and elsewhere, environmentalists are planning.  They are planning to save every eco-system, glacier, wetland, mountain, all the oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, dry washes, gullies, prairies deserts and the so-called endangered species that inhabit these places and they are planning to drive you out of the rural areas and plant your sorry little butts in 25-story apartment buildings in large cities where you will be forced to walk, take your bike, or mass transit to work.  They don’t care how much their planning costs.  And they are planning to get you out of your cars by making sure that the price of gas stays high, not paying for any new roads to handle the increased traffic that comes from having babies and the effects of natural migration, not allowing drilling for new crude oil sources, not allowing power plants and refineries to be built and draining your wallets with very inefficient, but very expensive mass transit, to pander to the myopic city folk that keep them in power.

Volleyball, Democracy, & War

By Michael Travis

Overshadowed by the dazzling spectacle of the Olympic games in Beijing, the all out war between Russia and Georgia has received scant coverage and analysis in the North American media. America’s enemies however, have forsaken the broadcasts of table-tennis and competitive line-dancing, giving their undivided attention to what they view as far better sport; the defeat of “Team America” at the hand of the undisputed champion of international discord, Russia.

According to the Red Cross, Georgian and Ossetian civilians are seeking safe haven in Turkey, a move that has caused the Turkish government to reassess its stalled bid for NATO membership. In a week that has seen General David Petraeus pledging more military equipment and specialised training for the Hizballah-dominated Lebanese government, U.S. State Dept. negotiations with the Iranian leadership in Geneva, and Presidential kow-towing to the Communist regime in China, you can bet the bank that Japan, Taiwan, Israel, and Eastern Europe’s new NATO members, are becoming very nervous indeed.

Moqtada al Sadr’s Penchant for ‘Community Organizing’

Radical Iraqi Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al Sadr is planning to disarm his Mahdi Army and oversee its transformation from Islamist fighting force into a civic and social service organization. Al Sadr wants us to believe that this cadre of anti-American jihadists is going to voluntarily lay down their weapons and all become “community organizers.” The truth is that al Sadr has been an attentive student, having studied the transformations of Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza from violent jihadi organizations into armed factions validated by the electoral and political processes.

Obama and Odinga: The True Story

imageThe mainstream media has justified ignoring this story based on a “conspiracy theory” chain email (politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/465) making the rounds from some African missionaries. Politifact.com examined the email—which claims Obama gave $1MM to Odinga’s campaign—and declared it “a pants on fire”. 

However, the underlying (more important issues) are verifiably true. In August and September 2006, Senator Barack Obama traveled to South Africa, Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Chad and Kenya as a congressional delegation of one (Codel Obama) (“Codel Obama” The Hill 9/7/2006)  While in Kenya, Obama consistently appeared at the side of fellow Luo Raila Odinga (“your agent for change’), who was running for President. (“Senator Rebukes Kenya’s Corruption” Chicago Sun Times 8/29/2006) Because of his African heritage, Obama was treated as a virtual “Head of State” in Kenya While campaigning with Odinga, Obama was openly critical of governmental corruption under President Mibaki –usually a fair, if undiplomatic, criticism from an objective observer.
