    Remember when America was the world leader? Remember when it was America who would not sit idly by when outrageous evils were sanctioned by the collective negation of humanity (the UN)? Mugabe How low America has sunk under the fraud. Even the pathologically leftist NY Times has said that Mugabe should be tried for war crimes. And this just last week: President Robert Mugabe and his henchmen are accused of crimes against humanity, a British newspaper reported on Saturday, for among other things, "slowly hacking off the limbs and pulling out the teeth with pliers of his opposition's supporters. He...

    Upon his investigation a Canadian journalist has concluded that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi submitted TWO DIFFERENT DNC documents attesting and/or pertaining to the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008. The Canada Free Press’, JB WIlliams, obtained the two separate documents “prepared by Democrats to certify Barack Obama as their nominee for president in 2008 that suggest House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew there was an unresolved issue with his [Obama’] eligibility under the U.S. Constitution.” The first verification contains the legal language stating both Obama and Joe Biden “are legally qualified to serve under the provision of the U.S. Constitution.”...

    A porn actor is wanted in a gruesome case of dismembered body parts that were mailed to different places including the headquarters of the Conservative Party of Canada, police said. Canadian police named a suspect in a gruesome murder case involving a dismembered torso, mailed-out body parts, and what one senior officer said was the worst crime scene his force has ever seen. Montreal police released a photograph of a man they said is Luka Rocco Magnotta, who they said also uses the pseudonyms Eric Clinton Newman and Vladimir Romanov, and asked people across Canada to help locate him....

    Canadian police are searching for a man in connection with a murder in Montreal. A male human torso was discovered in a suitcase in a pile of garbage at Place Lucy and Décarie in Montreal Tuesday morning. Although authorities have not released the name of the victim, they have released the name of a suspect: 29-year-old Luka Rocco Magnotta. Magnotta is a name well known in the animal rescue community. In 2010, a video surfaced of him on YouTube, torturing and killing two kittens. Photos of Magnotta holding various terrified animals as well as a list of his aliases made...

    OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- A severed human foot was mailed to the headquarters of Canada's Conservative Party and another body part was discovered when police intercepted a second suspicious package, police said Tuesday. Police were called shortly after a receptionist opened a blood-soaked box at the headquarters of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's party. The first officers to arrive saw what appeared to be blood stains on the package and immediately called in a special hazardous-material unit. When the specialists opened the package, police found the severed foot inside. Police said the package was addressed to the Conservative Party of Canada...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 29 May, 2012 | Chris Dumm
    Shooters up North celebrated a rare gun-rights victory in April, when the Canadian federal government finally euthanized its expensive and useless ‘Long Gun Registry.’ The celebrations were short, however. Eager to appease suburban voters and swinging liberals, Ottowa promptly moved to ban ‘body armour.’ Then PM Stephen Harper’s ‘Conservative’ party has quietly announced that all Canadian gun owners will have to start paying a $60 fee to renew their firearm licenses. It gets better: owners of handguns and other ‘restricted’ firearms (ooh, that sounds evil, doesn’t it?) have to fork over $80 . . . These fees have actually been...

    How a bizarre legal case involving a mysterious billionaire could force 1.2 million Canadians to be married, against their will. Somewhere in North America, there is a place where little girls don’t give the slightest thought to what kind of wedding dress they’ll wear one day. A place where young men have never heard the expression: “why buy the cow when you can have the milk for free?”—because the milk is always free. A place where no one asks an unmarried couple expecting a baby if they’re getting hitched. This place is the province of Quebec. The French language spoken...

    A suspicious device— possibly a pipe bomb— has been found inside a Roman Catholic Church in Brampton this morning and Peel bomb squad officers are in the process of removing it. "We don't know if it's real, if it's live, or if it has already been detonated," said Peel Const. Erin Cooper at the scene on Chinguacousy Road north of Steeles Avenue West. The device was located inside St. Jerome's church just after 9 a.m. Tuesday by police using a special robot. Soon after, word came that there may be another device inside the church.

    The United States will accelerate the resettlement of about 7,000 Iraqis referred by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and will contribute $18 million to the agency's appeal for Iraq, about one-third of the total, Undersecretary of State Paula J. Dobriansky said Wednesday. — Washington Post, 2/15/07 I hope it won't be thought impertinent, over-inquisitive, or — Heaven forfend! — mean-spirited of me to ask, but: Just what, exactly, are these refugees seeking refuge from? Us? A few more questions come to mind. Let us suppose, for example, that Sergeant John Q. American, a serving member of the U.S. armed...

    The Algerian terrorist who plotted to blow up Los Angeles International Airport at the height of New Year celebrations five years ago was sentenced to 22 years in prison on Wednesday. Defence lawyers had asked for 12½ years for Ahmed Ressam, 38, while prosecutors wanted 35 years. Mr Ressam, who had briefly co-operated with authorities in tracking down other terrorists, said nothing in court, but Thomas Hillier, a federal public defender, said his client had given John Coughenour, a US district judge, a note prior to the sentencing. The note, according to Mr Hillier, said: “I am sorry for what...

    Uncle Sam could soon be coming after you on Canadian soil. According to an article in Embassy Magazine, the Harper government is moving forward on several initiatives that could give U.S. FBI and DEA agents the ability to pursue suspects across the land border and into Canada. But, according to a RCMP officer, they're doing it in "baby steps." "We recognized early that this approach would raise concerns about sovereignty, of privacy, and civil liberties of Canadians," RCMP Chief Superintendent Joe Oliver, the Mounties' director general for border integrity, told the Senate Committee on National Security and Defence on May...

Shurvell told CBC News he was in the outhouse, with the door wide open so he could enjoy the morning view, when the bear barged in. "I'm sitting on the throne, and my feet are sort of up on...

    ATLANTIC CITY — A woman arrested in the daytime stabbing deaths of two Canadian tourists near an Atlantic City casino laughed, frowned, grimaced and repeatedly asked where her lawyer was today as she was charged with murdering the women, one of them 80 years old. Superior Court Judge Michael Donio read from a criminal complaint that said Pelzer, 44, stabbed the 80-year-old woman and tried to steal her pocketbook. "When the victim would not relinquish, the suspect stabbed her additional times," he said, reading from the complaint. .. She did not know how long she had been in Atlantic City,...

    The C$5.2 million funding for the NRTEE will cease as of 31 March next year under a wide-ranging omnibus budget bill C-38 that is currently before Canada's House of Commons. The legislation seeks to speed up natural resources projects such as oil and gas pipelines, and repeal the Kyoto Protocol Implementation Act. The Canadian government is to mark the 25th anniversary of its green business advisers by closing the agency down. John Baird, Canada's foreign affairs minister and pointman for next month's Rio+20 Earth summit in Brazil, said this week that the National Roundtable for the Environment and Economy (NRTEE)...

    Toronto’s Pride Week is at risk of losing its city funding now that Queers Against Israeli Apartheid has confirmed its intention to return to the parade this year. Council is slated to vote next month on providing a $123,807 grant to Pride Toronto, a decision that would have been routine if not for QuAIA’s plan to apply for a spot in the parade before the June 1 deadline. ... On top of the grant, the city provides about $300,000 worth of police, clean-up and other services for Pride Week, which runs from June 22 to July 1 and has a...

    First oil will flow south to refiners in the U.S. Gulf Coast this weekend on the Seaway pipeline, providing slight relief to bloated storage in the Midwest and to discounted Canadian crude. Enbridge Inc. and partner Enterprise Products Partners said Thursday the 150,000 barrel-per-day line reversal was complete, and oil from Cushing, Oklahoma would be arriving in Houston, Texas within two weeks. Markets responded to the news by shrinking the discount of West Texas Intermediate to Europe’s Brent by $2 to approximately $14 US per barrel on visions of slowly debottlenecking record amounts of oil at Cushing. The difference had...

    Mitt Romney is vowing to approve TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline on his first day on the job if elected U.S. president in November. In a campaign ad unveiled on Friday, the presumptive Republican nominee asks voters to imagine Day 1 of his presidency, and lists Keystone as a top priority. "Day One, President Romney immediately approves the Keystone pipeline, creating thousands of jobs that Obama blocked," the ad's narrator says. Romney has been maligning U.S. President Barack Obama for months for failing to give the green light to Keystone. The president rejected the $7 billion pipeline earlier this year, but...
