    Rep. Alan Grayson said Wednesday that he plans to file suit if Sen. Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada, wins the Republican presidential nomination. Speaking with liberal Fox News radio host Alan Colmes, Mr. Grayson, a Florida Democrat, called the 2016 Republican presidential lineup "appalling." "It's resolved itself into this weird reality show. It's not 'The Biggest Loser' that they're choosing, it's 'The Biggest Bigot,'" he said. Mr. Colmes asked if all of the GOP candidates are bigots. "Well show me one who represents the exception here," Mr. Grayson responded. "In a sense I guess Cruz is not technically...

    Trust Fund son of former Celebrity Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, will find it difficult romancing ranchers and farmers because there’s just no romancing those who actually work for a living Without ever intending to, newly-elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has saved the United States from the worry of 10,000 unvetted Syrian “refugees” being flown into Canada by the year’s end, from flooding over America’s unsecured northern border. Ditto for the 15,000 Trudeau is bringing to Canadian soil in February. What happens in Canada stays in Canada as far as Montana ranchers and farmers are concerned.

    Canada remains committed to taking in 25,000 Syrian refugees but will only welcome 10,000 of them by year's end, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government said Tuesday, according to AFP. The Liberal government, which had pledged to take in the full number of refugees this year, said another 15,000 would now arrive in 2016, by the end of February. The delay follows criticisms that Ottawa was moving too fast amid security concerns in the aftermath of deadly attacks in Paris. "Canadians have said do this right and if it takes a little longer to do it, then take the time," Immigration...

    Canada will accept only whole families, lone women or children in its mass resettlement of Syrian refugees while unaccompanied men – considered a security risk – will be turned away. Since the Paris attacks launched by Syria-linked jihadis, a plan by the new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, to fast-track the intake of 25,000 refugees by year’s end has faced growing criticism in Canada. Details of the plan will be announced Tuesday but Canada’s ambassador to Jordan confirmed that refugees from camps in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey will be flown to Canada from Jordan starting 1 December. Speaking in Jordan on...

    The concept of cultural appropriation is normally applied when a dominant culture borrows symbols of a marginalized culture for dubious reasons -- such as the fad of hipsters donning indigenous headdresses as a fashion statement, without any regard to cultural significance or stereotype. But Scharf, a yoga teacher with the downtown Rama Lotus Centre, said the concept does not apply in this case, arguing the complaint that killed the program came instead from a "social justice warrior" with "fainting heart ideologies" in search of a cause celebre.

But where Reagan was very active throughout his life, Hillary is a different story.    Hillary never participated in athletics when she was younger, something about being too ugly to participate.

As part of a 15-nation honesty study, researchers from the University of East Anglia had the 1,500 subjects participate in a coin flip, telling them they’d get up to $5 every time it came up heads. The researchers theorized that if the percentage reporting heads was over 50 percent, participants were being dishonest, since heads statistically shows up only half the time. An estimated 70 percent of Chinese participants lied — the most dishonest of the bunch, according to the...

    Iraqi officials temporarily seized a military aircraft carrying weapons for Canadian special forces in Kurdistan, amid a wave of anti-western conspiracy theories rife in Iraqi politics. The seizure and the reasons for it raise questions for Canada’s new Liberal government, which has vowed to do more military training in the country. The Iraqis said they held the Canadian Forces Hercules transport aircraft, carrying supplies into Kurdistan without authorization, for four days. Some Iraqis are concerned that the Kurds, who ultimately want independence for their territory, will use the support and weapons they receive from the U.S.-led coalition to eventually break...

    Due to warming water trends, experts say the province of Prince Edward Island could become a veritable hatchery for lobster within a half-century. While they caution there is a lot they don't know about the spiny delicacies, it does seem almost certain that the trend toward abundance in the Atlantic Canadian lobster fishery is not about to slow down. "With the temperature increasing in P.E.I. waters and decreasing the number of days a baby lobster is susceptible, you have less predation and an increase in settlement size lobsters," says Memorial University grad student Ryan Stanley, who is the grandson of...

    The main union for construction workers is accusing President Obama of throwing them "under the bus" by rejecting the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) is one of the few labor unions that broke with the majority of Democrats and supported the project, which Obama rejected Friday after a seven-year review. "We are dismayed and disgusted that the President has once again thrown the members of LIUNA, and other hard-working, blue-collar workers under the bus of his vaunted 'legacy,' while doing little or nothing to make a real difference in global climate change," Terry...

    The U.S. intelligence community has retreated from claims that two emails in Hillary Clinton’s private account contained top secret information, a source familiar with the situation told POLITICO. The determination came from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s office and concluded that the two emails did not include highly classified intelligence secrets. Concerns about the emails' classification helped trigger an on-going FBI inquiry into Clinton's private email set-up.

    Ending a review process that lasted nearly seven years, President Obama on Friday rejected the Keystone XL oil pipeline, siding firmly with environmental activists and drawing the ire of business and labor groups who say the administration is willfully standing in the way of economic growth, job creation and energy security. In a speech at the White House, Mr. Obama, flanked by Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joseph R. Biden, formally announced they'll block construction of Keystone. "The State Department has decided the Keystone XL pipeline would not serve the national interests of the United States. I...

    What you see is what you get. Unless, of course, things change. And so it goes in the highly uncertain world of trying to figure out what drilling and spending is going to be for next year in what appears to be an extended period of low oil prices. On November 3, the Petroleum Services Association of Canada held its annual Canadian drilling activity forecast session, an important event for oilfield service (OFS) companies trying to figure out how to plan and budget for the upcoming year. This year PSAC was again joined by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers...

    The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, speaking for companies which account for 90 percent of Canada's oil and natural gas production, has painted what is the bleakest picture of the industry's health in recent and possibly living memory. So bleak, that CAPP has gone for broke, submitting 60 recommendations to the Alberta government's royalty review panel, asking for a three-year delay in implementing any changes to royalty rates and pleading for lower royalties to offset the new administration's imposition of higher income taxes and carbon levies. That's the battered taking its begging bowl to the bruised. Both sides are reeling,...
