An Open Letter to the Left: We Are Not Afraid to DIE to Defend OUR President, OUR Country and OUR God

I speak for literally tens of millions of Americans today when I say to the left. “Be careful what you wish for.”

This is your warning shot.

You do not want to awaken the Christian Right.

You have done everything in your power to turn America into the land you want it to be, to the point where it is hardly recognizable to freedom loving Americans........

Congress must investigate why America was lied to about Afghanistan for all these years – Gabbard

Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard pledged to seek a congressional inquiry into the Afghanistan war after a damning report said US officials have been lying about what has been happening there since the US occupation began.

Gabbard, a military veteran who runs for the Democratic nomination on an anti-war platform, said there has to be “accountability for the lying” and the lives and taxpayer money lost in the longest military operation in the US history.

“The cost of this war and regime change wars and the nation-building that follows is immeasurable in many ways but it’s measurable in the ways that have been detailed in that Washington Post report,” she told Hill.TV on Tuesday.

Greta Thunberg wins TIME Person of the Year: It’s a symptom of a sick & confused world when adults make children their leaders

Gone are the days when TIME chose adult men, like Martin Luther King or Winston Churchill as the magazine’s person of the year (Adolf Hitler too – the award is for the most influential, not necessarily the most virtuous public figure).

CBS demands that YouTube censor “conspiracy theories” – but who defines them?

One man’s conspiracy theory is another man’s truth – so why not let individuals decide for themselves rather than controlling what they’re allowed to watch?

Fired Canadian bank employee who says he was denied a promotion because he is straight wins right to appeal his case

A former employee of a major Canadian bank who claims he was told he had 'no hope' of a promotion because he was straight is to have his discrimination complaint reassessed, a federal court has ruled.

The Canadian Human Rights Commission had previously dismissed Aaren Jagadeesh's claim that he faced discrimination at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) in Toronto due to his sexual orientation as a straight man.

Mr Jagadeesh, who was turned down for multiple promotions, stated that he was told by his boss to join a 'group' of gay and bisexual men in the office as only they would get promoted.

Tour company that organised doomed trip to New Zealand volcano is facing £750,000 fine and million-pound compensation bill as expert says Royal Caribbean could also be sued in the US

A New Zealand tour company which organised a doomed trip to the White Island volcano is facing a fine of up to £750,000 after an eruption killed at least six people.

White Island Tours could also be ordered to pay reparations potentially totalling millions of pounds under health and safety legislation in New Zealand after the WorkSafe regulator announced it is investigating.

However, the country's compensation act will prevent victims from launching personal injury suits against the firm, instead paying them from a government pot.

Raw meat warning as scientists find almost HALF of lamb mince sold in Australian supermarkets contains a parasite that may cause brain damage or schizophrenia

A dangerous parasite could be lurking in as much as half of all shop-bought lamb mince, according to a study.

Researchers tested lamb on sale in shops in Australia and found 43 per cent of the samples had Toxoplasma in them.

The parasite, best known for being carried by cats, can stay in the body for life and cause eye problems, schizophrenia or even brain damage in severe cases.

People must be careful to either freeze meat or make sure it's cooked thoroughly in order to destroy all traces of the parasite.
