Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told governors from across the US to ditch the "America First" motto. His National Governors´ Association speech in Rhode Island on Friday was a first for a Canadian prime minister. In his speech, Mr Trudeau urged US governors to embrace their neighbour to the north and avoid protectionism. It is all a part of his aggressive strategy to promote a "thinner border" ahead of vital trade talks with the US renegotiating the Nafta treaty. President Donald Trump has made "America First" his mantra, shaping his policies on trade and immigration. But Mr Trudeau, who is
This from the former substitute drama teacher who was elected PM of Canada. He inherited both his mother´s looks, which was good, I guess, and brainpower, oops. He should never appear in public without his pink knitted cap.
Trudeau, why you stop doing what is in Canada´s best interest and do what will help some other country at the expense of Canada. Go ahead and crush your standard of living. Make your own people poor. That´s what you are asking us to do.
We had 8 years of America-last and what did it get us? Our allies abandoned us. The poor got poorer. The middle class moved significantly in the direction of the poor class.
My house has not recovered it´s value after 8 years of Obama. That money went somewhere. Mostly to Obama´s billionaire friends.
Did L´il Turdo show off his sox? Did he boast about giving a terrorist Canadian-of-convenience, all around punk and murderer of an American medic [whose partners then saved this punk´s life] $10.5 million [as "compensation"] in such a sneaky way that his victim´s family cannot block the transfer legally? Did he further boast that even his party members overwhelmingly think this was slimey?
Did he complain that Canadian Conservatives are so outraged they are collecting funds, with a goal of $1 Million to give to the widow and 2 kids?
While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as
After violent protests erupted in St. Louis Friday night, U2 has announced they´ve canceled a Saturday night performance in the city. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said 32 people were arrested when protesters took to the streets after a white former police officer, Jason Stockley, was acquitted earlier that day in the 2011 fatal shooting of Lamar Smith, a black man. St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson found Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action for the Dec. 20, 2011 incident, in which Stockley shot Smith five times after a high-speed chase and crash. In a
Michelle Rounds, the ex-wife of comedian Rosie O´Donnell, has died in an apparent suicide. She was 46. Rounds died at her home on Monday, TMZ reported. O´Donnell confirmed Rounds´ death in a statement to the celebrity gossip website. "I am saddened to hear about this terrible tragedy. Mental illness is a very serious issue affecting many families," O´Donnell told TMZ. "My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle´s family, her wife and their child." Rounds´ mother also shared a statement encouraging people to donate to the National Suicide Prevention. "If anyone would like to give to the National Suicide Prevention it
TALLINN - Nearly one third of European Union states backed a plan to tax digital multinationals on their turnover, France said on Friday, as the EU weighs a range of other measures to increase the tax bill of companies like Google and Amazon. The moves are part of a growing campaign in the EU to claim tax revenues that online giants are accused of skirting by routing most of their profits to low tax rate states, like Ireland and Luxembourg. "The digital economy should be taxed as the rest of the economy," the EU commissioner for taxation, Pierre Moscovici, told
CNN host Anthony Bourdain joked in an interview with TMZ that he would poison President Trump if given the opportunity to cook for him and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. "If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?" asked a TMZ reporter. "Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned. Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method. The 61-year-old host of CNN´s weekly food and travel series, "Parts Unknown," later told Fox
Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency. "I think it needs to be eliminated," Clinton said of the Electoral
Five people including a mother and son are accused in an elaborate scheme to defraud a fund set up to aid Gatlinburg wildfire victims. Debra Kay Catlett, her son, Chad Alan Chambers, and three associates - Rocco Boscalia, Ammie Lyons and Esther Pridemore - are charged in a sealed presentment handed up by a Sevier County grand jury earlier this year with a conspiracy to defraud the Dollywood Foundation´s My People Fund. Entertainer and Sevier County native Dolly Parton established the fund soon after last year´s wildfires that claimed 14 lives and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses. David Dotson, president of
NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton, who spent decades on the public stage in a myriad of roles and changing personas, emerged Tuesday in a new one: ghost from the political past. The reception was decidedly mixed. (Snip) The former candidate, wearing a luminescent turquoise jacket and trademark black pantsuit, arrived at the bookstore nearly an hour after the scheduled 11 a.m. starting time. The crowd greeted her with shouts of "Hillary! Hillary! Hillary!" Seated on a makeshift stage separating her from reporters and those in line, Clinton made no public remarks to the media, but chatted with fans, offering sympathetic
Alabama Democrat Doug Jones is running just a few points behind his potential Republican opponents for a Senate seat in the deep-red state, according to a new poll. The poll from Emerson College finds former Alabama state Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore ahead of Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) by a 14-point margin ahead of the GOP´s special election primary runoff on Sept. 26. But both Republicans would hold only a slim advantage over Jones, according to the poll-Moore leads Jones by 4 percentage points, while Strange leads by 3 points. The poll is a surprisingly strong result for Jones, who was expected to have no
Sergio Dipp´s ESPN job appears safe after ´Monday Night Football´ meltdown. Shaken sideline reporter Sergio Dipp took to Twitter to try to explain his meltdown on ESPN´s "Monday Night Football." As a minority himself, the Mexico native said he was trying to show "respect" to the African-American head coaches on the sidelines, Vance Joseph of the Broncos and Anthony Lynn of the Chargers. The second game of ESPN´s "MNF" doubleheaders marked the first time two African-American coaches made their respective head coaching debuts in the same game, according to the New York Post. Dipp normally reports in Spanish on soccer,
Amazon has been monitoring and deleting reviews after Hillary Clinton´s new book was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released. What Happened, which covers the former Secretary of State´s unsuccessful election campaign against Donald Trump, was published on Tuesday. Clinton and her publisher Simon & Schuster claimed the book would offer a candid account of her failure and her own reflection on it. Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some suggesting it Clinton uses it as an opportunity to blame others – such as Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin – for her failure, rather than herself.
A Wisconsin Dairy Queen owner is defending a sign describing his restaurant as "politically incorrect" for its unabashed support for "God and country." The sign at the franchise in Kewaskum notifies patrons that staff may say "Merry Christmas," ´´Happy Easter" and "God Bless America," among other things. Owner Kevin Scheunemann tells WDJT-TV he "felt the sign was appropriate to hang in terms of being transparent about the views of the owner and staff supporting God and country." One customer who apparently doesn´t agree took a picture of the sign and complained about it on Dairy Queen´s page on Facebook. The chain
Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying. Milbank discusses his health crises in his September 15 Washington Post column, President Trump is killing me. Really. President Trump is killing me. No, really. He’s killing me. It wasn´t one of his campaign promises but we´ll take it. I went for my annual physical last month, and, for the first time in my 49 years, I had to report that I’ve not been feeling
Georgia Tech police shot dead a barefoot student carrying a knife late on Saturday night. The student, 21-year-old Scout Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, was seen walking toward police - who issued several warnings to drop what officers believed was a knife. The tense encounter was caught on camera - in which the student can be seen walking closer and closer to the police officers and shouting ´shoot me.´ (Snip) At Georgia Tech, Schultz was president of the school´s Pride Alliance, which is a student organization for LGBTQ students and allies. Schultz preferred ´they´ and ´them´ gender pronouns and identified
The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,
The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.
ST. LOUIS -- Protests turned violent for second night near St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows at dozens of businesses and throwing objects at police, who moved in with hundreds of officers in riot gear to make arrests. The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University. The area is known for concert venues, restaurants, shops and
The silent coup has apparently succeeded. President Trump has been convinced to abandon his revolutionary program of putting “America First,” and has decided to play footsy with globalists like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.There have been signs since before Trump took office that he was not dedicated to accomplishing the goals he promised—whether that was building the wall, repealing Obamacare, cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, lowering taxes, leaving NAFTA, or many more.[SNIP]The final nail in Trump’s and America’s coffin may be his decision to become the stepfather to President Obama’s illegal executive order establishing Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.
People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a
Yes, you read the headline correctly. In the latest example of identity politics taken to its absurd end, three Australian college professors believe that "Playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) – may give boys an advantage over girls when it comes to physics." The three professors didn´t publish their thoughts on a satirical website like The Onion. Instead, they published on Tes, a website that provides "Educational materials, jobs, news, and courses from the world´s best community
Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey. Comey led the Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state, after Lynch stepped back
Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more
The star of HBO´s Insecure proudly spoke about her support for black nominees at the Emmys last night in an awards ceremony that had historic wins for minority stars. ´I´m rooting for everybody black,´ Issa Rae said from the red carpet. ´I am!´ The 32-year-old actress and writer also praised the number of African-Americans recognized for their talents in the TV industry. (Snip) During his speech for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy, he said: ´I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list. He´s the reason I am probably up here.´
After delivering some rare remarks at a US Air Force event on Friday, First Lady Melania Trump proudly introduced her husband to the stage, no doubt hoping for a congratulatory kiss on the cheek. Instead, she was confronted with an awkward and stern handshake from the President who told her ´thank you´ before ushering her off to the side, muttering: ´You go and sit down now.´ Their interaction, deemed ´bizarre´ for a husband and wife by some, took place at Joint Base Andrews on Friday afternoon. After spending some time at the Maryland base´s youth center with some of the
