Why is Ottawa so extraordinarily supportive of the Jewish state? Has the Harper administration gone too far, and cost itself influence in the Arab world? And would a change of government see an altered stance?
The cry of the self righteous...
Syrian troops backed by fighters from Lebanon's Hezbollah attacked and entered the strategic rebel stronghold of Qusayr on Sunday, a day after President Bashar al-Assad insisted he would not quit.
The advance came as opponents warned the Assad regime's "barbaric and destructive" assault on Qusayr could render "meaningless" US-Russian attempts to organise a conference on ending two years of bloodshed in the country.
We pay for Sharia.

"Jesus... the virtuous patriotic Palestinian forefather... brought forth his New Testament and spread it among mankind - which led the Jews to persecute him until they caught him, crucified him, and murdered him"
To announce defiance in such a way is a serious sign of how little respect Middle East leaders have for Obama...
"While the U.S. government has pressured Erdogan not to visit the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, Erdogan announced in the White House Rose Garden that he would do so. An alleged U.S. ally says publicly in front of Obama while being hosted by him that he is going to defy the United States."
After all, without personally blaming the former premier, Wynne finally apologized last week for the Liberals’ disastrous political decision to cancel two gas-fired electricity plants — at a cost to the public of $585 million that we know of — to save a few Liberal seats in the last election."
OTTAWA – Nigel Wright, chief of staff to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, resigned Sunday over a cheque he wrote to Sen. Mike Duffy.
“In light of the controversy surrounding my handling of matters involving Senator Duffy, the Prime Minister has accepted my resignation as Chief of Staff,” Wright said in a written statement.
Lee Ping, administration manager of a Chinese consortium building the Neelum Jhelum Hydropower project, was accused by co-Pakistani workers of throwing the Quran on the ground.
Here is a woman we will need to learn much more about in the coming weeks. Sarah Hall Ingram is a highly valued employee at the IRS. In the last three years she has received $103,390 in bonuses for her excellent work.
She was the Commissioner of the Tax-Exempt and Government Entitles Division. Under her leadership, groups that expressed a fear of large, out-of-control government were systematically crushed by her branch of our large, out-of-control government. They were specifically singled out for harassment for political reasons. Secret information about the conservative applicants was leaked to leftist opposition groups to facilitate further harassment.
Smuggled KFC in Gaza is quite expensive, not very crunchy. And as we all know Palestinians are desperately impoverished, so spending a lot on gross fast food is obviously a real hardship for them.
Oh, and death to America for inventing the stuff in the first place.

"Ford was always going to be the fat girl shlepping around Holt’s in vain, wondering where the big sizes are kept.
He was a figure of scorn from the get-go, even before he won the mayoralty. Only a Torontonian would understand the classism in this, but it was enough to say, “He’s from Etobicoke, for Christ’s sakes.”
But crack was never part of the deal."
So says Christie Blatchford. Well I do agree. At this point simple denials won't cut it and none of us will know with certainty until the video is vetted, if it ever is. Now imagine this had been a liberal politician, say someone found naked in a whorehouse, or like Georgie Smitherman, Ford's coke-head opponent in the last election, the same coke-head endorsed by the Star. Would they be the recipient of the same scorn faced by Ford?
Rob Ford on crack is still better for Toronto than his "sober" spendthrift opponents

Speaking at Ohio State University earlier this month, Barack Obama urged students to pay no attention to those paranoid types who “incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity.”

"In the fall of 2011, fourth grader Zachary Maxwell began asking his parents if he could start packing and bringing his own lunch to school. Unfortunately, they kept insisting that he take advantage of the hot lunch being served at the school. After all, the online menu sounded delicious and the NYC Department of Education (DOE) website assured parents that the meals were nutritious. Zachary wanted to convince his parents that the online menu did not accurately represent what was really being served at his school."

I would like to think the actions of British university lecturer and socialist politician Eleanor Jackson were unique and confined to a country 3,000 miles away.
But, alas, it’s not the case. The woman has persuaded the local council in Somerset in the beautiful, rural west of England to remove the cross of St. George flag from its premises “because it was used during the Crusades 1,000 years ago.”
Remember how embarrassed for America you felt when white liberal friends said they voted for Obama cause he was black? #RememberWhenBarackObama
"It was simply an accident, of course. It was “not a partisan selection,” IRS official Lois Lerner told reporters. Before you laugh and ask “does she really believe her own words?” consider the following. One must remember that many liberals and leftists see their actions as non-partisan. After all, they are only serving the public interest by stopping conservatives from organizing and expressing their views."
