Conversations over the dinner table that incite hatred must be prosecuted under Scotland’s hate crime law, the justice secretary has said.
Journalists and theatre directors should also face the courts if their work is deemed to deliberately stoke up prejudice, Humza Yousaf said.
Palestinian Islamic scholar Sheikh Ali Abu Ahmad used an address at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem to warn French President Emmanuel Macron and all the “infidels who have acted with insolence against Muslims” to get ready for holy war.
Hi my name is Khaleel Seivwright, I am a carpenter and I’ve raised money to rent a garage and buy materials for building durable insulated tiny shelters for homeless people across Toronto who might be living outside this winter. These tiny shelters are designed to be mainly heated by body heat and because of their size and the insulation value of the walls ceiling and floor just body heat alone should be enough to keep the shelter around 16 degrees Celsius in -20 temperatures. This will also depend on the quality of construction.
I am also accepting donations of building materials such as:
small double or triple glazed windows
2×4 and 2×6
tyvek or other house wrap
door hinges and latches
This first shelter which does not have completed siding yet cost about $1000 dollars to build with brand new material. I plan on using the the possible 20,000 to pay for this space which is $450 a month to store material and build in a controlled environment. The rest of the money would be used on building supplies. If there is enough interest in this project I will work on these structures full time.
I’m excited to do this because I know it can work, I love designing and building different interesting ideas and I know it might help atleast a few people get through this winter who might not and others in the future as well. As shelters are usually at capacity at some point in the winter in Toronto and also because of this coronavirus, making space to allow for social distancing will put even more strain on Toronto’s capacity. For some its more difficult to find a shelter that can accommodate them and their pets or belongings and others refuse to be in shelters for other reasons. I am building these shelters for those that will live outside this winter.
I will be posting updates of progress and the building of each shelter as this goes on. Thank you for supporting me to do this.
Breitbart News invites readers to experiment with Google’s suppression of headlines. Some topics are severely censored and others appear as normal. The experiment can be repeated on competing search engines such as duckduckgo.com with dramatically different results.
Coronavirus cases are surging in Europe just months after the media pushed the narrative that Europe had the virus under control while America twiddled its thumbs.
European media leans even further left than American media, and greatly amplified the narrative that America’s response to the coronavirus had been an unmitigated failure.
To give just a small sampling of the headlines documenting the opinions of Europeans on America’s coronavirus response:
- Coronavirus: Europe Struggles to Adapt to a Post-American World – The Conversation, May 13
- How Did America Become a Pariah Nation of Super-Spreaders? – The Guardian, June 26
- Europe Experts Are Looking On In Horror At the Botched U.S. Response to the Coronavirus – Business Insider, June 27
- Europe Stunned by American Coronavirus Response as U.S. Approaches Five Million Infections – The Telegraph, August 9
- Europeans Say COVID-19 Revealed America as “Fragile,” Inconsiderate – Newsweek, August 8
- If the U.S. Handled COVID-19 Like Europe Did, 60,000 Americans Would Still be Alive – Fortune, August 5
A number of polls found America’s image plunging in the eyes of Europeans during the pandemic, undoubtedly fueled by narratives like this.
Increasingly, through mainstream media and Big Tech, high-profile leftists are speaking openly about violence to be inflicted on Trump and all his supporters.
I’m not talking specifically about the Antifa and Black Lives Matter street violence we’ve seen in places like Denver and Portland, which includes outright murders of Trump supporters. I’m referring here to voices that normalize and promote open terror against any freedom-respecting person who has different views from those blessed by left-wing leaders, media, and Big Tech.
A recent report from the New York Times states that the Justice Department is targeting a secretive partnership between Apple and Google worth billions of dollars as part of its landmark antitrust case. The deal, which cemented Google’s control of internet search, is described as “one of the most lucrative business deals in history” by the Times.
Two EU institutions are using technology produced by China’s Hikvision, a firm that has been accused of providing surveillance equipment to Muslim internment camps in the country’s northwest Xinjiang province.
Hikvision describes itself as “the world’s leading video surveillance products supplier.”
When a Chinese Christian, Chen Yu, was caught boldly selling religious publications not authorized by the government, his punishment was a seven-year prison sentence and an approximately $30,000 USD fine, handed down by a court last month.
Such steep punishment for promoting and adhering to a religion is all too common in China today. Faith is increasingly under attack in President Xi Jinping’s China. As religious expression becomes more dangerous there, people around the world should be speaking up in defense of China’s persecuted believers.
In addition to Chen’s fine and imprisonment, the court ordered local police in the Zhejiang province to destroy 12,864 religious books from his online bookstore. Make no mistake—this is a regime that is deeply afraid of the growth of Christianity.
The estimated 100 million Christians in China make the eradication of Christianity from China difficult. Chairman Mao tried and was unsuccessful. President Xi prefers a more subtle tactic than Mao’s, a campaign to “Sinicize” religion to make it more compatible with the teachings of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
One way China seeks to Sinicize Christianity is by re-writing the Bible. A complete communist translation has yet to be revealed. The news of one chapter’s government-approved revision left Christians outraged last month.
A textbook for a class on professional ethics and law at the government-run University of Electronic Science and Technology Press quotes the Bible’s book of John, chapter eight. In this passage, an adulterous woman is brought to Jesus, and her accusers ask if she should be killed by stoning for her sins.
In every authentically translated version of scripture, Jesus responds, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” These words disperse the angry crowd, and Jesus tells the woman, “Go, and from now on sin no more” (ESV).
The Chinese Communist Party’s version takes a different turn. In this telling, the crowd leaves, but Jesus tells the woman, “I too am a sinner. But if the law could only be executed by men without blemish, the law would be dead.” Then Jesus proceeds to stone the woman.
The Party’s distortion of scripture whereby the Savior kills a woman is offensive and defamatory. That the CCP made this change is revealing. The Party’s story teaches that forgiveness, an important Christian value is rejected and the law must be obeyed without question. In China, the law is whatever the CCP says.
“One is required to think outside the box in search for peace. I do not think a reasonable person – whether Palestinian, Arab or Muslim – would refuse any initiative to resolve the [Palestinian] cause in any way,” he said.
“The [Palestinian] cause has been going on for 70 years. We have tried wars, we have tried to throw Israel into the sea and we have tried many other things,” the former Saudi Arabian minister said.
A 21-year-old man allegedly murdered by Afghan migrants aboard a bus was stabbed 99 times, according to a Swedish prosecutor.
The prosecutor revealed details while announcing that three Afghan migrants, a man and his two sons, have been charged with the July killing.
Prosecutor Lindha Strömberg said that the stabbing in Kiruna was likely planned and not a random assault.
“He was cycling after work when they attacked him. He then fled in a panic, running through a residential area and, I believe, sought shelter on the bus. They’ve followed him and cut him down,” Strömberg told newspaper Aftonbladet.
B.C. real estate developer Yongtao Chen stepped onto the podium in a Vancouver hotel ballroom and enthusiastically waved a red flag to a loud round of applause.
He had just accepted a new role as chairman of the Canadian Alliance of Chinese Associations (CACA) and was displaying their banner at an August 2018 political gala in Vancouver.
The alliance is a pro-Beijing umbrella group that says it represents about 100 Chinese community associations across Canada and works with Chinese state officials to build mutually beneficial ties between the two nations.
But Canadian intelligence sources suspect the organization is part of a network directed from Beijing to undertake both legal and illegal tasks abroad.
Some 400 people were in the crowd at the gala, decked out in tailored suits and evening gowns. The guests included China’s top consular officials in B.C. and Canadian politicians from all levels of government.
Chen pledged to build ties between community groups in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal and “unite entrepreneurs” under the alliance’s banner.
One of the entrepreneurs in the room was Yongtao Chen’s business partner, a Toronto real estate tycoon named Wei Wei.
But two years later, Wei is facing multiple criminal charges in relation to allegations that he was running illegal gambling operations out of his massive marble-floored 53-room mansion in Markham, Ont.
And according to law enforcement sources, the business and political ties of some CACA leaders like Wei and Yongtao Chen are of increasing concern for Canada’s national security as RCMP and Canadian Security Intelligence Service investigators probe networks they believe may involve the hidden hand of the Chinese state and organized crime.
Few have dared to question the effectiveness, integrity, and necessity of colleges and universities. The COVID-19 crisis is about to burst the bubble of silence that surrounds them.
More and more people are beginning to understand that academic institutions have failed not only in setting an order of priorities for scientific research, but in making the necessary transition to the digital age in education.
The heads of these institutions talk about rapid adjustment to online learning, but conceal the embarrassing truth: Most of the world’s professors have no experience whatsoever in the online medium, and now they are forced to improvise. Were it not for the lifeline thrown to them by Zoom — a limited format that barely scratches the surface of online learning’s myriad possibilities — they would have been silenced entirely.
Our book “Academia: All the Lies,” which addresses the culture of denial and self-deception that has taken over the supposed temples of truth, came out two weeks before the outbreak of the pandemic. Although, in the book, we raised the possibility that a global pandemic would force processes of change to take place, we didn’t think that our forecast would come to pass quite so fast.
At a time when the skies are closed and making a living is difficult, many young people see higher education as the default option. With time, they will understand that the worth of an academic degree is shrinking in the employment market, that career patterns and patterns of education are changing fast, and that “general education” can be acquired in a more concentrated and pleasurable fashion outside of the academic framework. In fact, we are constantly surrounded by endless sources of information, and all we need is to want — and know how to acquire — new knowledge.
More and more employers around the world, and not only in the field of high-tech, are waiving the entry requirement of an academic degree and offering training and enrichment tracks in place of academic study. In August, Google declared its intention “to disrupt the college degree” by means of a professional training track only six months long. This announcement, issued by one of the world’s economic giants, has sounded the trumpets for the oncoming revolution.
The model of academic instruction is a fossilized model that has not changed in any meaningful sense since the Middle Ages. It is based on the old-fashioned requirement to earn a single degree at a single institution; on studies that take place over certain fixed periods of time identical for all subject areas (class, course, semester, 3-4 years); on a choice of courses from a limited, and often random, buffet menu; and in particular on the passive, and usually boring, frontal lecture format.
Until now it has somehow continued to work, but this model is thoroughly unsuited for the generation of digital natives. The very idea that scientists (who primarily devote themselves to research) are also the ones who develop the pedagogical curriculum, present it themselves, and test the results of their instruction — is not only unprofessional, but even absurd. It’s like forcing a television presenter to become the show’s producer, investigative reporter, director, cameraman, and graphic designer.
Sadly, the public still regards an academic degree with near-religious awe, and remains blind to the astonishing truths that lurk behind the myth — for example, that professors are not required to undergo any kind of pedagogical training or systematic professional development on the subject of teaching. The quality of their teaching is not a significant factor in their promotion, and there is no real quality control for academic courses;
Even after their bluffs have been called, the requisite change in the model of higher education is unlikely to come from the institutions themselves, for the simple reason that it involves the closing and/or radical reformation of many institutions, not to mention mass layoffs.
Prof. Scott Galloway, one of America’s leading intellectuals, recently said that COVID-19 was a death sentence for 50% of the nation’s universities. The data published on the shuttering of institutions worldwide even before the outbreak of the epidemic proves that his prediction isn’t so implausible.
COVID-19 has been a particle accelerator for changes in the way we learn, just as it has been a particle accelerator for changes in the way we work. The speed of the revolution will be dependent on the speed with which young people and their parents are able to sober up from the myth of the academic degree, on the openness and flexibility adopted by employers, and on the courage of governments to break free of outdated paradigms.
Once institutions of higher education lose their monopoly on advanced education (in the field of scientific research, they have already surrendered this birthright to the world of industry), all of us will see not only online courses on a much higher level, but countless more effective and enjoyable pedagogical strategies than those offered by academia today — both on campus and in the “copy-paste” to Zoom.
Dr. Tamar Almog and Prof. Oz Almog
Dr. Tamar Almog, a pedagogue, and Prof. Oz Almog, a sociologist and historian, are faculty members at the University of Haifa, Israel. Their book “Academia: All the Lies – What Went Wrong in the University Model and What Will Come in its Place” (Yedioth Books) was published in Hebrew in March 2020. The translation of the book to English was released in August 2020 (Amazon).
There have been no new reports of Canadian diplomats coming down with mysterious symptoms of what’s become known as “Havana Syndrome” in nearly two years — and no answers for those affected.
That’s despite new reports from the New York Times and GQ Magazine that American intelligence sources are pointing the finger at Russia for dozens of cases of U.S. diplomats and spies experiencing symptoms similar to those reported by the Canadians.
But Canadian investigators say they still have no idea what caused the spate of illnesses — originally described by government officials as “attacks” — and are not providing any updates on the state of the investigation, which documents obtained by Global News under access to information laws initially described as “criminal” in nature.
Bernie Bro with Van Full of Guns and Explosives Plotted to Assassinate Biden. Media Buries the Lede, as Usual
Most of the time, the media doesn’t outright lie to you. Yeah, every once in a while they’ll blurt out a huge whopper (“Russian collusion”), but usually it’s more subtle than that. They’ll give you the facts, but they’ll emphasize some facts over others to preserve the narrative they’re selling. They’ll lie by omission. They’ll distract you with trivia while the real story slips by you unnoticed.
For example, did you hear about the guy they just arrested in North Carolina for plotting to kill Joe Biden? Do you think you know why he wanted to do that?
FSWC Calls for Action After U of T Professor Glorifies Legacy of Terrorist Involved in Massacre of Civilians
Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) was disturbed to discover that a University of Toronto professor spoke last night at an online event honouring the legacy of a terrorist who helped orchestrate the massacre of 26 civilians in Israel.
The event celebrated the legacy and “Palestinian Resistance Arts” of Ghassan Kanafani, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist who was involved in organizing the 1972 Lod Airport massacre, which left 26 civilians dead, including one Canadian, 17 Christian pilgrims from Puerto Rico and eight Israelis, with an additional 80 people injured. Dr. Chandni Desai, Assistant Professor in the Critical Studies of Equity and Solidarity at the University of Toronto, served as one of two panelists at the event, glowingly describing Kanafani’s accomplishments and referring to the work of the terrorist being used as an “inspiration.”
There was little chance he was getting out, but it’s still welcome news that notorious serial child molester Shayne Lund will remain where he belongs — behind bars.
Unfortunately, these are not maximum security bars.
Instead, the dangerous offender who victimized 14 girls, some as young as two years old, has been moved to a range where inmates are responsible for their own groceries and cooking and where Lund can “participate in sporting activities.”
And did we mention this sick pervert — once described in court as a “Paul Bernardo in the making” — had a “romantic relationship” with a pen pal and that she has popped by to visit him in prison?
A prominent anti-racism activist from Calgary has been charged with assault with a weapon in connection with an incident at a demonstration in Red Deer last month.
In a news release issued Friday afternoon, Red Deer RCMP said 29-year-old Taylor Michelle McNallie was charged in connection with an incident that unfolded on Sept. 20, 2020 but declined to provide further details about the nature of the alleged assault.

Biden Whistleblower Emails: Chinese Energy Company Gave $5 Million Non-Secured, Forgivable Loan to Biden ‘Family’
A 2017 email from a top official with a Chinese energy firm, provided by a whistleblower to U.S. Senate investigators, demonstrates the terms of an agreement included officials with the firm giving a $5 million non-secured, forgivable loan to the Biden “family.”
The email, sent to SinoHawk Holdings CEO Tony Bobulinski, shows how a top official with CEFC Energy — a now bankrupt and defunct energy company based in China — offered to wire $10 million into an account to begin operations, $5 million worth of which would be a non-secured forgivable loan to the “BD Family,” which means the Biden family.
We now have more corroboration of the New York Post’s Hunter Biden reporting than we do for any of the Russiagate pieces that dominated our news coverage for four straight years.
Michael Goodwin reports in the New York Post today that Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, has given a statement not only confirming the authenticity of emails regarding Hunter’s schemes, but explaining that Joe Biden is, in fact, “the big guy” referred to in that correspondence. Bobulinski claims Hunter told him that his father signed off on deals with Chinese Communist firms there were struck while Hunter was leveraging his dad’s position in the Obama administration.
Now, perhaps the Navy veteran, one-time chief technology officer at the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command, and largely apolitical Bobulinksi — who has only made campaign contributions to Democrats, and not to any Democrat, but to one of the most progressive members of Congress, Ro Khanna — is also part of an elaborate Russian cabal spreading “disinformation.” But it seems highly unlikely.
FBI says IRAN is responsible for fake ‘Proud Boys’ emails threatening Democrat voters to vote Trump ‘in an effort to hurt the president’ and says Russia is interfering in voter registration
US intelligence officials have confirmed Iran is responsible for a series of threatening emails targeting Democratic voters this week, as they revealed Russia is also playing its part to meddle in the presidential election.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Wednesday identified the countries as two foreign actors that ‘have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections.’
Ratcliffe said both countries separately managed to obtain and use voter registration information to target Americans and ‘incite social unrest.’

The student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin -Milwaukee posted an opinion-editorial containing instructions on how to make and use a Molotov cocktail.
The editor-in-chief of the UWM Post, Adam Kelnhofer, wrote an op-ed on June 14 going over the history of the Molotov cocktail after protests broke out in Milwaukee following the death of George Floyd. The op-ed included instructions on how to “make a Molotov cocktail.”
