On Aug. 29 the National Post, one of Canada’s two national newspapers, published an opinion piece by Afsun Qureshi, whoever that is.

Putin’s Unchecked Aggression
 By Joseph A. Klein Full Story

Putin’s Unchecked Aggression

Russia has expanded the scope of its military intervention in Ukraine. Following on the heels of its illegal occupation and annexation of Crimea and arming of the separatists fighting the Ukrainian government in eastern Ukraine, Russian regular troops have now joined the separatists’ fight.

It’s A Wonderful Country
 By Lance Thompson Full Story
It’s A Wonderful Country

In the 1946 Frank Capra film It’s a Wonderful Life, Jimmy Stewart plays the part of George Bailey whose life challenges–legal, financial, personal–seem so overwhelming that he believes it would be better if he’d never been born.  An angel named Clarence shows him what a world without George would look like.  George realizes that he has affected the world in countless positive ways, and a world without him would be dark, hopeless and cruel.

Shaking, Quaking, and Freezing

Obama, Global Warming: Shaking, Quaking,  Freezing

Have you noticed how much earthquake and volcanic activity has been occurring lately?

There was a major earthquake in Napa, California, on Sunday, August 24th as well as considerable volcanic activity from Iceland to Papua, New Guinea. August was also a month that set records for colder U.S. temperatures.

This is Like Heaven, But Not Good Enough for Progressives
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

My 1977 English teacher who said I would never amount to anything because my English was not British enough, taught me how to type on an old Remington typewriter with each letter attached to a striking metal arm. These armed letters often tangled if I typed too fast. When the school was allowed a few IBM SELECTRIC typewriters, I felt like we had arrived. I could type really fast, 85 words per minute. One of the big shots in the Communist Party had a child in our class and nothing but the best was provided for his progeny; so all 36 students got lucky.

Obama Asks, Is Strategy for ISIL REALLY Necessary?
 By John Lillpop Full Story

Obama Asks, Is Strategy for ISIL REALLY Necessary, Obama dumbing down of American

Barack Hussein Obama shocked, saddened, and disappointed millions of patriotic Americans when, upon returning from his long, but totally undeserved, vacation he blithely announced that his administration does NOT YET have a strategy for dealing with ISIL, which is quite disconcerting because, as nearly everyone but Obama knows, ISIL is the most vicious, subhuman terrorist group ever to threaten modern civilization at large, and America in particular.

The Ambiguous Nature of Canada's International Defense Posture
 By Sierra Rayne Full Story

The Ambiguous Nature of Canada's International Defense Posture

As Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine, an invasion that began formally with incursions into Crimea earlier this year—but in reality began many years before with growing Russian influence in Ukraine’s domestic politics, Canada’s defense posture is becoming less clear over time.

US Jacks Up Exit Fee For Those Renouncing Citizenship
 By Alan Joel Full Story
US Jacks Up Exit Fee For Those Renouncing Citizenship

Just like the recent rise of business inversions — moving business HQ abroad — the United States has seen an uptick (up 221%) in Americans renouncing their citizenship. The elephant in the room in both these cases is taxes: both high taxes and burdensome tax compliance in foreign jurisdictions.

Mary Landrieu and Her House of Cards
 By Jeff Crouere Full Story

Mary Landrieu and Her House of Cards

This election has been most difficult for U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) with one mistake after another taking her off message. First it was discovered that she was charging taxpayers for at least four campaign flights. Her embarrassing mistakes were not something Louisiana voters should expect from a Senator with so much experience. Mary Landrieu has been in political office since 1979 and has served in the U.S. Senate since 1997. It is inexcusable for Landrieu not to know that taxpayers should not be charged for campaign air travel.

SOCOM Change of Command
 By Jim ONeill Full Story

On December 4, 1783, at Fraunces Tavern in New York City, General Washington bade farewell to his officers.  His words still convey the emotionalism of the change of command: “With a heart full of love and gratitude, I now take leave of you.  I most devoutly wish that your later days may be as prosperous and happy as your former ones have been glorious and honorable.”

Putin Storms Ukraine
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

Putin Storms Ukraine

Yesterday, Ukrainian President Petro O. Poroshenko declared that Russia had invaded his nation. Col. Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for the Ukrainian military, confirmed that two armored columns of Russian forces, replete with tanks and armored fighting vehicles, captured the town of Novoazovsk on the Sea of Azov near the Russian border. Ukrainian troops were forced to retreat in the face of superior fighting power that included Grad missiles launched from Russian territory. “Our border servicemen and guardsmen retreated as they did not have heavy equipment,” Lysenko said in a statement.

The deadly combination of Obama and the UN will indenture civil society

With Barack Obama now firmly in place as their ex officio leader, the United Nations pooh-bahs have come up with a surefire way to stick it to the taxpayers of the world, while feathering their nests for all time.

Palestine--Unearthing Past Remains Key To Resolving Future
 By David Singer Full Story

The cease fire agreement ending hostilities in the Fifty Day War between Israel and Hamas marks yet another milestone attesting to the failure of Jews and Arabs to peacefully resolve their claims to sovereignty and self-determination in the territory once called “Palestine”.

Obama: 'We don't have a strategy yet' for defeating ISIS

Toronto cancels permit for 15th annual Jesus parade
 By Arthur Weinreb Full Story
Jesus in the City Parade organizers Charles McVety and Ayanna Solomon  (Photo:Toronto Sun)

Update: After meeting with Rob Ford and the bureaucrats, the parade is back on on a different route.

With less than a month to go before the parade expected to draw thousands of participants, Toronto bureaucrats told the organizers of the annual event that it could not be held. Although excuses were given, there is no other logical explanation other than the cancellation of the event, held without incident for the past 14 years, was nothing more than Christian-bashing.

My late father-in-law was a successful farmer and cooperative extension agent with 40 year’s experience who advised farmers in his county on crop management, land and water use, fertilizers, soil analysis, pests, and plant and animal disease.

Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev's sister arrested for making bomb threat

Yesterday, in New York, the sister of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev was arrested for allegedly threatening to blow someone up in what appears to be some kind of weird love triangle situation. You will, of course, remember the Tsarnaevs as the infamous terrorist duo behind the Boston Marathon bombing, which took place back in April of 2013.
