Trudeau’s looming “plastics ban” is (another) total crock, and here’s a video

Excellent denunciation video, based on facts and evidence, that Trudeau's looming "plastics ban" is a total crock, and is based on a 9-year-old's "research." Seriously. And by 9-year-old, I don't mean Trudeau, I mean...

Trudeau/newspaper refer to Islamist terrorists returning to Canada only as “extremist travellers.”

While liberals and the media have absolutely no problem smearing good, Canadian normals as "alt-right" or "racists" or "deplorables" or "white supremacists" or "fascists" when those people are, factually, none of those things, Justin...

Totally dishonest Globe & Mail and other media lie about Trump insult of London...

Saying in headlines that Trump opened his London trip by insulting the London Mayor Sadiq Khan with "he's a stone cold loser," is horrible journalism. It's a blatant and nefarious omission of pertinent facts. Several...
