Is Putin Bankrolling Le Pen’s Campaign?

Oh, Canada, :-(

A law-abiding, tax-paying Canadian homeowner writes:

So, I spoke with a lawyer and turns out that indeed government bureaucrats are allowed to enter a house (even without owners present, as long as someone opens the door) & take pictures as they please! If they show up & no one opens the door, they are allowed to return with police who can forcefully open the door to let them in. No heads up required!

I no longer see any reason to hold on to my Canadian passport. Maybe I will have to spend the rest of my life emigrating, but it’s all good as long as I emigrate away from what’s described in the quote.

The Scary Banana

Once it’s OK for a cop to feel like a 5-year-old child at the sight of an unarmed teenager, it’s got to be OK to flip out during an encounter with a scary banana:

The deputies, Joshua Bunch and Donald Love, said they feared for their safety when the man, 27-year-old Nathan Rolf Channing, pointed a banana at them while crossing the 29 Road bridge on foot, according to Channing’s arrest affidavit.

Both deputies said they saw that the “gun” was yellow, but feared for their lives nonetheless, the affidavit says.

“I immediately ducked in my patrol car and accelerated continuing northbound, fearing that it was a weapon,” Bunch wrote in the affidavit, which lists Love and him as victims. “Based on training and experience, I have seen handguns in many shapes and colors and perceived this to be a handgun.”

I guess, these brave law enforcement officers should be awarded medals for managing to keep their cool in the face of the horrifying, threatening banana and not shooting up the neighborhood to protect their valiant lives.

Ecopop Fails

Switzerland’s anti-immigration bill that masked as environmental concern has been overwhelmingly rejected by voters:

Voters in Switzerland have decisively rejected a proposal to cut net immigration to no more than 0.2% of the population.

The country’s 26 cantons rejected the proposal, with about 74% of people voting no in Sunday’s referendum.

I’m interested in this bill because I have a feeling that nobody will do anything about the legitimate climate change issues but there will be numerous attempts to sneak all kinds of super ridiculous policies by the voters under the guise of environmental concerns.

The reason why voters rejected the Ecopop proposal is, of course, the new liquid economy:

Opponents, among them all the major political parties, argued that the proposals would be bad for the economy because business leaders wanted to be able to recruit skilled labour from across Europe.

For Putin Lovers

As we all know, Putin loves to pontificate about the “horrible degradation” of Western societies. Here is just one example from his many  speeches on the  subject:

“Policies are pursued [in Western countries] that put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category, belief in God and belief in Satan. Excesses of political correctness reach the poin

t where there are serious discussions on the registration of parties that have propaganda of pedophilia as their objective. People in many European countries are ashamed and afraid of speaking about their religion, holidays are abolished or given other names, names that shyly conceal the nature of those holidays, and aggressive attempts are made to force this model on the rest of the world,” Putin said.

This is a direct path to degradation and primitiveness, to deep demographic and moral crises,” he said


Of course, now the Russian mass media are busily looking for proof of the scary Western degradation. This week, for instance, one of the most popular TV channels broadcast a report about a small American boy whose parents decorated the walls in his bedroom with photos of naked men.
“These are the evils of political correctness!” the broadcaster wailed. “Parents subject a 5 – year – old to gay porn just so that nobody would suspect them of disliking gays! Are these the much vaunted values we are supposed to adopt?”

There was ample footage of the boy, the room, and the naked men on the walls to accompany the story.

Of course, bloggers soon found out that the footage had been photoshopped. In the original story, the parents covered the boy’s bedroom walls with decals of cars. The gay porn was introduced into this story by the diseased imagination of the servile Russian newscasters. But since most people in Russia watch TV and don’t read blogs, this fake story was an effective propaganda tool.
