Scale. Every religion begins somewhere in a basement or a backyard or a barn with a small group of people and some scrap of received wisdom. Most of them end that way. But occasionally an idea, a leader, a concept, just … catches fire. It spreads, and adapts, and invariably mutates as it passes from that original founder
  2. How quickly they change. I guess we'll here more of the truth going forward.... https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-19/mcconnell-says-mob-attack-on-capitol-was-provoked-by-trump

  7. But is it one small item? Interesting how 'one small item' has made so much change in so little time.
  8. "At noon on January 20, Trump will be in desperate shape. His business is floundering, his partners are fleeing, his loans are delinquent, prosecutors will be coming after him, and the legal impunity he enjoyed through his office will be gone. He will be walking naked into a cold and friendless world. What appeared to be a brilliant strategy for escaping consequences was merely a tactic for putting them off. The bill is coming due." https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2021/01/donald-trump-after-presidency.html
  9. Yes, he put out that statement, however, he has shown that the first two lines weren't that important. He may be courting those in Alberta, but no traction anywhere else in Canada. https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/nanos-survey-reveals-where-o-toole-s-conservatives-may-find-their-greatest-support-1.5095404
  10. The situation in the U.S. can be summed up with this quote from Voltaire...
  11. Good Morning We are already seeing the effects of divisive lies. Isn't that why there was an attempted coup in the U.S. on Jan 6th? Isn't that why there are currently more troops in D.C. than there were in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria? Isn't that why gun sales are through the roof in the U.S.? When you have an individual that uses his position to cause such damage through untruths, something has to be done to tone it back down. It's capitalism. The platforms that censored trump are private companies. Do they not have liability for what happens with/on their platforms?
  12. So they were behaving in a suspicious manner, got pulled over for such, lied to police, therefore one was charged with obstruct police and then they were charged with violating the Reopening Ontario Act. I would say that is good policing. https://www.iheartradio.ca/am800/news/four-people-charged-for-riding-in-vehicle-together-1.14370910 According to police, their vehicle was stopped in Chatham after an officer saw a suspicious vehicle on Grey Street and pulled it over in the area of Raleigh Street and Richmond Street.

  13. So you are saying that the vote was improper, therefore Rempel isn't worthy of the honour as well?
  14. Yet are they morons? With trump gone, less fiery divisive lies are being thrown out, therefore those who have belief in conspiracy theories and untruths have less to complain about. Valid argument. Besides, trump hasn't been silenced, the White House press briefing room has sat empty for how long?
  15. At least the CBC, Canadian Press, and UN Commissioner can and were fact checked. Rempel made allegations without basis. Does that answer your question? The way I see it is that it is facts vs. rhetoric.
  16. So you are saying I'm posting the Canadian version of Fox News?
  17. Elisabeth May was voted 'most knowledgeable' and Christia Freeland was 'parliamentarian of the year'. So they're all good?
  18. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2021/01/16/misinformation-trump-twitter/ Misinformation dropped dramatically the week after Twitter banned Trump Zignal Labs charts 73 percent decline on Twitter and beyond following historic action against the president Online misinformation about election fraud plunged 73 percent after several social media sites suspended President Trump and key allies last week, research firm Zignal Labs has found, underscoring the power of tech companies to limit the falsehoods poisoning public debate when they act aggressively.

Calgary MP’s online rants veer into conspiracy theory What in the world has happened to Calgary MP Michelle Rempel this summer? Rempel, who described herself as a “centrist” as recently as last year, has been on about what she calls “Trudeau’s border crisis,” the influx of asylum-seekers who have fled to Canada from the U.S. in recent years. And lately when Rempel sees somethi

  21. Worth repeating... https://www.businessinsider.com/fox-news-karen-mcdougal-case-tucker-carlson-2020-9 Fox News won a court case by 'persuasively' arguing that no 'reasonable viewer' takes Tucker Carlson seriously A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit against Fox News after lawyers for the network argued that no "reasonable viewer" would take the network's primetime star Tucker Carlson seriously. The network asked a judge to dismiss the case, arguing that "Carlson's statements were not statements of fact and that she failed adequately to allege actual malice."
