1. Donald Trump fences with UK media over theBritain First retweet
(In normal times I would celebrate this victory. In normal times I would say that if what he did and said is constitutionally protected in Canada then we are OK. We can and will win this thing because when truth is on your side the only problem you will have is if truth is made illegal.
Which it is.
Instead what this will likely be, is the greatest example of selective enforcement in Canadian history.)
VANCOUVER — A British Columbia man acquitted of terrorism-related charges has filed a lawsuit against the provincial and federal governments, arguing he was maliciously prosecuted in violation of his charter rights.
Hamdan says in his notice of civil claim that he only learned during trial that the sole evidence being presented against him was the online posts, which he says are constitutionally protected speech and “woefully inadequate evidence to secure a conviction.” […]
In acquitting Hamdan, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Bruce Butler wrote that he “was trying to highlight what he perceived to be hypocrisy and injustice, support some of the actions of (the Islamic State) in its defence of Sunni Muslims in Iraq and Syria and promote discussion about these issues.”
Here is an eerily similar story but I think a different one.

A British Columbia man accused of threatening to join the so-called Islamic State and behead Canadians has fended off the RCMP’s attempts to subject him to a terrorism peace bond.
Khalid Ahmad Ibrahim was arrested in 2016 on the grounds the RCMP feared he would engage in terrorism for ISIS but a judge dismissed the case in a decision handed down this week.
In her ruling, Judge Therese Alexander of the Provincial Court in New Westminster, B.C., said the 41-year-old Iraqi-Canadian suffered from mental illness and the police evidence was not reliable.
Billionaire investor George Soros launched a scathing attack on tech giants at the Davos summit on Thursday, calling them monopolies that could be manipulated by authoritarians to subvert democracy.
During an annual dinner he hosts at the World Economic Forum, held this week in the Swiss alpine resort, Soros turned his sights on a host of subjects including US President Donald Trump and the speculation frenzy surrounding the bitcoin cryptocurrency.
But much of the Hungarian-born financier’s ire was reserved for the tech giants of Silicon Valley who, he argued, needed to be more strictly regulated.
(While what Soros says about social media is something most of us agree with, one has to suspect it is because social media was the tool that let the truth get out about his communist comrades and Trump was elected because thanks to social media, and even despite the agenda of its owners, employees and the various Soros orgs. that control them possibly, democracy has a lifeline.
Soros’ reasonable sounding noises are probably because of his lack of control or the fact that people like us use it to stop people like him from “fundamentally transforming” the world.)

6. Compare what muslims in the UK get away with, to what happened to Jayda Fransen for saying a few facts about the effects of Islam on the West:
(The link above is to a harrowing story of brutal murderous racism that takes place every day somewhere against White South Africans. It is a tough but IMO a necessary read. Either genocide is OK or it is not. And if it is not, something has to be done about this one. To start with, allow them refugee status at the UN, and in Western nations where Im pretty sure we could still use a lot of hard working farmers.)
