1. Please click through to read this grotesque disproportionate sentence given to a man who set off a firecracker near a mosque. When you do, think about the three religious muslims that have been let go after being caught killing one child, and training many more to do high school shootings as acts of jihad.
2. Very often on this site, people wonder how it is that socialists do not seem to learn from the catastrophes they create whenever and wherever they implement their policies. This doesn’t explain it, but it does show that they never learn.
From Bob Rae, former socialist premiere of Ontario, and someone who ran for the leadership of the Federal Liberal party.
Crisis in Venezuela has created over 2 million refugees, unparalleled economic chaos, and great hardship for the people of a country that seemed to have everything going for it. Need to learn how this happened. #venezuela

3. Many of the arguments I get into with people about communism, centres around the mistaken belief that its just a more ‘kind’ economic system. That is the least of it.
THIS is communism. The ideological distortion of everything that matters or works in order to force it to fit a narrative.
The late Neil Armstrong’s 1969 trip to the moon may have been “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” but it was also a massive achievement for the United States.
One of Armstrong’s first orders of business was to proudly plant the American flag, after all.
But Ryan Gosling, the Canadian actor who plays Armstrong in “First Man,” Hollywood’s rendition of the moon landing, told the Telegraph the magic moment was intentionally omitted from the big screen because Armstrong’s achievement “transcended countries and borders.”
Just FYI, The line by the first man on the moon was flubbed. He was a pilot and astronaut, not an actor. The line as it was written was:
“This is a small step for a man, but a giant leap for mankind”. Which makes perfect sense and is also beautiful while being humble.
Later on in the article, the actor explains that he decided Armstrong did not view himself as an American Hero, so omitting the flag plant was A OK. They also committed something else from the film which Armstrong did feel strongly about.
Communion on the Moon:
July 20th, 1969
Forty years ago today two human beings changed history by walking on the surface of the moon. But what happened before Buzz Aldrin (pictured in the LM, left) and Neil Armstrong exited the Lunar Module is perhaps even more amazing, if only because so few people know about it.
I’m talking about the fact that Buzz Aldrin took communion on the surface of the moon. Some months after his return, he wrote about it in Guideposts magazine. And a few years ago I had the privilege of meeting him myself. I asked him about it and he confirmed the story to me, and I wrote about in my book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (But Were Afraid to Ask).
This is communism. And to call it destructive is as much a distortion by understatement as to call it hypocritical.
Legendary cricket commentator Henry ‘Blowers’ Blofeld is leaving London and moving overseas, complaining that the capital has become “horribly violent” and observing that “you don’t see many Englishmen” there anymore.
The 78-year-old, who was a familiar voice on Britain’s airwaves for 45 years as part of the Test Match Special on BBC radio, told the Daily Telegraph: “I don’t like [London] any more. I think it’s become, not exactly dangerous, but it is horribly violent, isn’t it?”
He added: “I had a friend who was knifed from one of those mopeds, and you don’t see too many Englishmen where I live.”
Thank you all for your attention today.
More to come.
