Michael Moore Explains Why Trump Will Win

Hillary Clinton’s E-Mail Server Company Got Almost $1 Million In Gov’t Loans After Wiping E-Mails

Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server company got almost $1 million in government loans starting immediately after they were secretly asked to wipe Hillary Clinton’s name from her e-mails. 
Platte River Networks (PRN) got a $493,000 loan from the Small Business Administration in August 2014 and another $350,000 loan in September 2015...

The Bully Party

From Scott Adams' blog:

...Team Clinton has succeeded in perpetuating one of the greatest evils I have seen in my lifetime. Her side has branded Trump supporters (40%+ of voters) as Nazis, sexists, homophobes, racists, and a few other fighting words. Their argument is built on confirmation bias and persuasion. But facts don’t matter because facts never matter in politics. What matters is that Clinton’s framing of Trump provides moral cover for any bullying behavior online or in person. No one can be a bad person for opposing Hitler, right?
Some Trump supporters online have suggested that people who intend to vote for Trump should wear their Trump hats on election day. That is a dangerous idea, and I strongly discourage it. There would be riots in the streets because we already know the bullies would attack. But on election day, inviting those attacks is an extra-dangerous idea. Violence is bad on any day, but on election day, Republicans are far more likely to unholster in an effort to protect their voting rights. Things will get wet fast.
Yes, yes, I realize Trump supporters say bad things about Clinton supporters too. I don’t defend the bad apples on either side. I’ll just point out that Trump’s message is about uniting all Americans under one flag. The Clinton message is that some Americans are good people and the other 40% are some form of deplorables, deserving of shame, vandalism, punishing taxation, and violence. She has literally turned Americans on each other. It is hard for me to imagine a worse thing for a presidential candidate to do.
I’ll say that again. 
As far as I can tell, the worst thing a presidential candidate can do is turn Americans against each other. Clinton is doing that, intentionally.

The University of Toronto's hypocritical, selective interest in Academic Freedom and Free Speech

Yesterday, the University of Toronto acceded to a request from Psychology Professor Jordan Peterson to have a public debate about Canada's Bill C-16.  Among Peterson's concerns about that piece of legislation is the fact that it's worded so it could be utilized to turn the use of a pronoun, if a transsexual to whom it was addressed didn't feel it was appropriate, into a crime. (Yes, Canada has legislators who are that preposterous.)

The request was a victory, but a hard-earned one by Peterson and his supporters, and it came about not because of a commitment to academic freedom or free speech by the University. It was quite the opposite. The University capitulated to intense public and media criticism after for trying to deprive Peterson of his free speech rights and academic freedom.

This episode reiterates the hypocritical, selective approach the University of Toronto takes to these critical benchmarks of the intellectual climate and respect for the rights of individuals and groups, or lack of such, it affords to its students and instructors.

Peterson has been at the center of a maelstrom of controversy after recently making YouTube videos in which he proclaimed he would refuse to use pronouns he thought were ideologically driven perversions of language-usage. Singled out were those people who demanded to be addressed as "they" or some made-up pronoun because they deemed themselves "gender non-binary persons."

It is critical to the understanding of this issue to recognize that while transsexual issues have become very prominent in the media in the last year, as a percentage of the population, they are exceptionally rare. Within that minuscule sector of the populace, those who identify as "gender-non-binary" are rarer still. Most transsexuals identify as either male or female and prefer the use of "he" or "she."

It's also important to note that other than in those exceptionally rare instances of hermaphrodites, there is no biological evidence that gender non-binary people exist outside of their own belief. It is a psychological or psychiatric condition rather than a biological sex.

But we now live in times where radical activists and their ideologies drive legislation and will aggressively, sometimes violently stomp on the rights of anyone who disagrees with them.

In this case, the first response of the University of Toronto's administration came in the form of two threatening letters from senior administrators to Peterson, in which they urged his silence about and compliance with policies he found morally deplorable.

It was only after a public outcry and scathing media criticism that the University switched directions and acquiesced to Peterson's request to have a public debate on the issue.

The attempted suppression of Peterson, who did nothing but assert his own rights to use language within the normal confines of English usage and biological realities, contrasts sharply with University of Toronto's responses to instances where its institutions and professors were engaged in hateful, discriminatory practises. In previous instances, the University vigorously defended the academic freedom of those engaged in overt hatred and discrimination. But the difference is that in those cases, the University of Toronto defended the right to direct hatred towards Jews.

In 2010, a major controversy arouse out of a thesis promoting ethnic bigotry that was the basis of a Master's Degree awarded at U of T's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education(OISE). The thesis, by a Jenny Peto (who has since metamorphosed into "Ben" Peto)  asserted that Holocaust education programs were part of a Zionist conspiracy to promote Israeli interests and further Jewish "whiteness." Its demented conclusions resembled a modern re-working of the notorious Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and its laughably shoddy scholarship was based in large part on the author perusing a pair of websites. It was condemned across party lines in the Ontario legislature, including by Liberal Cabinet Minister Dr. Eric Hoskins, and it brought the academic standards of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education into disrepute, turning it into a laughingstock.

But rather than the threats and attempts at stifling that Jordan Peterson received for his exercising basic rights, U of T defended the awarding of a Master's Degree for antisemitic tripe. In that instance, the U of Toronto did not investigate the hatred and bigotry promoted at OISE and the bullying of students who don't submit to orthodoxy of accepted radical notions of anti-western so-called "social justice." Instead, U of T doubled down by making an anti-Israel, Marxist crackpot who was a featured speaker at an "al Quds Day" antisemitc jamboree as OISE's new head of "Social Justice education."

Was that a one-off at the University of Toronto? No, it was not.

At around the same time that Peto was writing her deranged tome, an Assistant Professor at U of T's school of Social Work by the name of Rupaleem Bhuyan, it was discovered, took institutional antisemitism to a new level. She fostered a classroom discussion where students complained of "rich Jews" and even participated in a "Jew count" of faculty. When a student complained about the professor's racism and Bhuyan was confronted by the school's Director of PhD Programs about it, Bhuyan protested, according to Professor Adrienne Chambon, that, "‘racialized’ students come from underprivileged backgrounds and were justified in not wanting to be around old Jews because they are rich and would make them uneasy. " According to Chambon, Bhyuan also asserted that donor plaques at the university were all from rich Jews, which she felt proved her point.

Did the University do anything to remove that bigoted, nontenured instructor out of its teaching environment? No. It did the opposite and awarded her a tenured Associate Professor's position while effectively ostracizing and driving out the Director of PhD Programs, Professor Chambon and Professor Ernie Lightman, who first brought the issue to the administration's attention. 

From these and Peterson's plight, we can learn two important things about the University of Toronto. One is that if you want basic rights there, you have to stand up for them, often in the face of vigorous institutional opposition. The other is that it's most likely to only defend your rights if it thinks you're a "politically correct" victim, and in those cases, the victimhood need be only in your head.

Clinton supporter paid off $467,500 to wife of FBI Deputy Director in charge of email probe who later decided not to indict Hillary

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has long been a supporter of the Clintons and, as such, is being called into question over his financial involvement in a recent state Senatorial election.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Mr. McAuliffe has been linked to hundreds of thousands of dollars given to the campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Besieged Professor Jordan Peterson Responds To The University of Toronto's Orwellian Effort To Strip Him Of His Free Speech Rights

Jordan Peterson is the University of Toronto Psychology Professor being persecuted by the institution he works for because of his declared refusal to kowtow to a politically correct mandate to use "non-binary" gender-neutral pronouns he feels are inappropriate.

In a demonstration of classic Orwellian doublespeak, the University of Toronto's administration has sent Peterson two warning letters in which they proclaim their commitment to free speech while simultaneously trying to deprive him of his rights to free speech and academic freedom.

The onslaught against Peterson is something about which every Canadian should be very worried. We have so-called Human Rights Commissions which are now moving past trying to police what can be said into forcing people into saying things they don't want to say.

Pretty soon, it'll be illegal to say that two plus two equals four because it offends non-binary people when you don't say it's five.

Peterson has just published a video with his defiant response to the University's tyrannical demands.

At THIS LINK is a petition where you can express your support for Jordan Peterson's academic freedom, and more importantly, his human right to free speech.

UPDATE: The University of Toronto has actually accepted Peterson's proposal for a public debate. This is a good development, but make no mistake about why it happened and what it means. The University of Toronto's first instinct and first actions were attempts to stifle Peterson, and deprive him of his rights to free speech and academic freedom. They were only to happy to take their marching orders from extremist, Marxist and racist groups like the "Black Liberation Collective."

It was only after massive public attention and pressure was applied to the University of Toronto, pointing out that they were violating their own mandate with their treatment of Peterson that they acceded to his request for a debate. But the issue of free speech and the tyranny of political correctness, both at the Canadian universities and by Canada's government bureaucracy is very far from being settled.

If anything, this is a critical lesson on speaking out and standing up for free speech as it undergoes an ongoing assault.:

Is the Liberal Minister trying to screw with Canada's electoral process an Iranian mole?

Liberal MP Maryam Monsef tried to move back to Afghanistan in 2014. Instead she visited Iran where she was encouraged to run for office here in Canada.

This is according to a French-language profile in Le Devoir written well before it was revealed Monsef was born in Iran, not Afghanistan as she claims she’s always believed.

In the story, Monsef says she couldn’t enter Afghanistan because “it was not safe”. Then once in Iran, she says, she worked with Afghan refugees and was “encouraged to enter politics” in Canada.

This visit to Iran – a country with incredibly strict entry and exit rules - raises serious red flags, according to immigration experts and some in the Iranian community.

In 2012, the Harper government severed diplomatic ties with Iran and closed the Iranian embassy in Ottawa. Due to this, travel between Canada and Iran became increasingly difficult.

In 2014, the Iranian regime made it even more difficult for Canadians who do not have status in Iran to travel there. Canadian citizens who do not hold Iranian passports were banned from visiting Iran except through state-sanctioned tours...

CBC News finds a leftist clown to disavow radical clown terrorism

I saw this coming a mile away when I suggested that clowns should declare themselves as a religion so that they could stop being fined and arrested for wearing their gear and creeping people out in public.
Now we're getting, at CBC news of course, an article informing us that True Clowning is being perverted by a minority of radicals.
Which obviously is clownshit. Just because Agnes the Clown thinks terror doesn't belong in clowning doesn't mean it isn't a legitimate branch of clowndom any more than it disqualifies Corbynites who are sympathetic to terrorism from being part of UK's Labour movement. Everyone has their radical wing, but it's theirs and you have to either cut it loose or own it.
Just wait until one of them says, "Clowning is the entertainment of peace."
You have this entertainment where they hit each other, spray people with seltzer, knock each other down, smash pies into people's faces - for anyone who looks, it's evident that violence and terror is inherent in clown ideology.

Making clowning even more incompatible with western civilization is their practice of wearing facial coverings and baggy outfits to hide themselves.
Personally, I think our government has been infiltrated by subversive clowns. How else to explain how Canada's Immigration Minister is a red-nosed fool prone to saying unbelievably ridiculous nonsense?

The creepy clown craze has some people on edge leading up to Halloween, and not in the traditionally scary-yet-innocent way most are accustomed to at this time of year.

Two teens were given a slap on the wrist in mid-October after the pair dressed up as clowns and terrorized people in Winnipeg... 
...Regardless to whether the stunts are meant as silly pranks, the humour is lost on many — including Sue Proctor.

Proctor has performed as a mime, clown and storyteller for more than 30 years. She recently earned a master's degree at Concordia University, where she studied the role of the clown for individual and social transformation.

Proctor spoke with CBC Up to Speed radio host Ismaila Alfa recently and explained that terror has no place in the clown world...

Anti-free speech protester at U of Toronto rally arrested for assault

On October 11th Professor Jordan Peterson held a demonstration at the University of Toronto to voice his concerns about political correctness. As expected, the radicals at the university’s student unions showed up to protest and shut down the professor’s speech. They (sort of) accomplished this by blasting white noise through a public address speaker system that was rented by a student union leader named Cassandra Williams.

If you’re one of the unfortunate people who relied on mainstream media reports from outlets like CityNews and the Globe & Mail – or the intentionally unbalanced reports by the campus Varsity newspaper – it’s likely you have a complete misunderstanding of what happened that day.

One of the most memorable moments of the protest was when Rebel Media’s Lauren Southern was assaulted by a trans woman who tried to grab away her microphone. Moments later, a protester who the Internet named “Smugglypuff” blatantly lied to police officers claiming that nothing happened. But Smugglys story doesn’t end there, turns out he/she/xe/ve/thon/hu/ge/zee is now facing criminal charges- but not for the reason you might think...

The Crook Versus the Monster

From Scott Adams' blog:
...Reality isn’t a factor in this election, as per usual. If the truth mattered, voters might care that the Democratic primaries were rigged against Sanders. They might care that the Clinton Foundation looks like a pay-to-play scheme. They might care that the FBI gave Clinton a free pass. They might care that we know Clinton cheated in at least one debate by getting a question in advance. They might care that Clinton’s dirty-tricks people incited the violence at Trump rallies. They might care that Clinton’s “speaking fees” were curiously high. They might care about all of that. But they don’t, because a crook is still a safer choice than a monster.

The biggest illusion this election is that we think the people on the other side can’t see the warts on their own candidate. But I think they do. Clinton supporters know she is crooked, but I think they assume it is a normal degree of crookedness for an American politician. Americans assume that even the “good” politicians are trading favors and breaking every rule that is inconvenient to them. I’ve never heard a Clinton supporter defend Clinton as being pure and honest. Her supporters like herdespite her crookedness.

Likewise, Trump supporters know what they are getting. They know he’s offensive. They know he’s under-informed on policies. They know he pays as little in taxes as possible. They know he uses bankruptcy laws when needed. They know he ignores facts that are inconvenient to his message. They just don’t care. They want to push the monster into Washington D.C., close the door, and let him break everything that needs to be broken. Demolition is usually the first step of building something new. And Trump also knows how to build things when he isn’t in monster mode...
