It’s All A Joke to Them: Canadian Howie Mandel Wears Hazmat Suit to Hollyweird Gig

Howie obviously missed the memo from Dr. Drew.

Howie Mandel is a judge on the TV show, America’s Got Talent (AGT). He’s also a big germaphobe.

So how did this Canadian decide to show up for work in California the other day? Like this:

Howie made a joke about his outfit. That’s to be expected by someone who suffers from TDS.

This man is worth $40 million, courtesy of his $70,000/per episode paycheck from AGT. He can afford to miss a few days of work if he is REALLY that concerned about the Wuhan Virus.

Yet that wouldn’t allow him the opportunity to run with the demorat narrative, now would it?

Elon Musk’s 31-year-old pregnant girlfriend is “woefully ill-prepared”

Elon Musk (who is 48) supposedly knocked up his 31-year-old Canadian singer girlfriend who goes by the names of “Grimes.”

She posted on Instagram a few days ago that she feels “woefully ill-prepared” because she really didn’t understand what she was getting into.

From her post:

“Fake or real? Haha. Wow I’m starting to feel bad haha… how do y’all cope with working and having a baby?? I’m sorry I haven’t been promoting my album properly or on social media more. This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal. Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz. What were yalls experience w this stuff like? I feel like I was woefully ill prepared cuz I dunno if pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be. I just didn’t rly understand what I was getting into. It’s been good too, but it makes working a lot harder. Good at writing and having lots of wild ideas tho, but anything physical is hard. Im also way more emo and less capable of bravery in the face of haters online and stuff haha. But my albums out in a sec so I prob need to get back on here. Don’t mind my emo energy, but curious what other ppls experience was like 🤍🐁🍼 I didn’t even google it, I was just like sure y not hahaha smh.”

Womyn, please. You are 31 years old. Quick acting like you are 17 and that no woman has ever given birth before.

For a womyn who is considered a “badass” she sure whines a lot. You picked a real winner, Elon.

Oh noes: Harry and Meghan don’t want to live in LA until Trump leaves office

From Page Six: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be coming to America — but not until President Trump is out of office, a report said Sunday.

After their Megxit deal gets hashed out, the Daily Mail reported that the couple plan on living in Canada and eventually find a home and business in Los Angeles.

“It’s by no means an immediate thing but there is a long-term plan to end up back in the US with a second home in Canada, where they will also spend a great deal of time,” the source said.

But Markle, 38, has said she won’t move back while Trump is president, according to the Mail, citing her friends.

Ahead of the 2016 election, and before she married 35-year-old Harry, the former actress blasted Trump as divisive and misogynist on Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.”

She said at the time that she was considering remaining in Toronto, where she filmed the USA Network’s “Suits,” if Trump won.

During Trump’s state visit to the UK in June, he was asked about Markle’s comments and lashed back that “I didn’t know that she was nasty.”

He later clarified he meant the comments were nasty.

Neither Markle — who was on maternity leave after giving birth to the couple’s son Archie — or Harry made an appearance at the state banquet at Buckingham Palace during the visit. Harry did, however, attend a royal luncheon with Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

Alleged ISIS supporter commits murder with stolen gun; victims sue S&W for their “ultra-hazardous” product

Faisal Hussain: Not responsible because of a hazardous product.

In 2018, a “psychotic, depressed ” and “very disturbed” Faisal Hussain shot 16 people in Greektown (Toronto). Two people died. Hussain cowardly committed suicide.

Hussain used a .40-calibre Smith & Wesson that HE STOLE in Saskatchewan in 2016 during a break-and-enter at a gun store.

According to Heavy, the Pakistani Hussain may have expressed support for ISIS. Wikipedia says that to this day there is no evidence that there was any connection between the shooter and his support for ISIS.

In a class action lawsuit filed by the victims of this shooting, they claim that the gun manufacturer failed to implement “key safety features” that could have prevented the attack.

Those features would be smart-gun technologies to prevent “unauthorized” users from firing the gun.

Without the technology in place, the lawsuit claims it was “reasonably foreseeable” people such as Hussain could inflict widespread damage with a stolen weapon. Read the details about the class action lawsuit here.

Setting aside the unreliability of smart gun technology, wasn’t it “reasonably foreseeable” that people such as Hussain would not inflict such widespread damage due to Canadian laws?

I mean, I’m no lawyer and I do not have a thorough knowledge of Canada’s criminal laws yet have a few questions:

Isn’t stealing ILLEGAL?
Isn’t breaking and entering ILLEGAL?
Isn’t assault ILLEGAL?
Isn’t assault with a deadly weapon ILLEGAL?
Isn’t first-degree murder ILLEGAL?
Isn’t felony murder ILLEGAL?

I’d argue that the “ultra-hazardous” actions of this shooting originated with the CRIMINAL shooter.

Where do you draw the line with product manufacturers and CRIMINALS who are WILLING and INTENT on committing ILLEGAL behaviors?

Guess the Canadian courts will decide.

About this video, from Andy Ngo:

“Antifa protesters scream at & block elderly couple outside an event featuring conservative politician @MaximeBernier & @RubinReport. Further violence broke out, leading to two arrests. Mohawk College had faced massive campaign to cancel the event”

Antifa’s actions do not surprise me. They are disgusting creatures.

I’m horrified that not ONE bystander did anything to help this couple.

What is wrong with people today?

Here’s a video where the harassing Antifa womyn’s face is exposed:

Canadian “woman” acquitted in BDSM child case

Cleared: Jacquelyn Laronde

This story is messed up on so many levels…

From Toronto Sun: A judge has acquitted a Kingston woman, who was formerly a man, of allegations that she sexually abused the teenage daughter of a BDSM sex partner.

“I am not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Jacquelyn Laronde committed these offences,” said Justice Jane Kelly.

She cleared the 49-year-old woman, previously known as Sean O’Toole, of sexual assault and interference charges against the girl. The Crown had alleged the offences took place in London, Ont., during the early 2000s when the girl was 12 to 17 years old.

“While I appreciate that the victim was testifying as a 30-year-old adult about what happened 15 to 18 years ago, the standard of proof remains the same,” said Kelly, adding she didn’t believe the accused’s evidence.

Despite finding inconsistencies and contradictions in the complainant’s testimony, the judge praised the woman, who passed university and is now raising her own child. “Her resilience must be commended. She has suffered much trauma in her short life but testified in a mature and poised manner,” said Kelly. “She’s to be admired for her strength.

“She testified in a very convincing manner, but her evidence was inconsistent,” said Kelly, who listed examples of contradictions and inconsistencies.

Laronde is one of three strangers, including Jason Dickens and Martin Galloway, who were allegedly invited by her parents to sexually abuse the girl. Her stepdad and mom also violated her, according to testimony at the trial.

The woman’s sister, who’s one year younger, and brother — born in 1992 — were subjected to degrading sexual abuse by their parents, court heard.

Laronde, Dickens and Galloway were BDSM sex partners with the victim’s mom.

Dickens, 48, pleaded guilty to child pornography charges stemming from this case and is facing the prospect of a dangerous offender bid. Galloway is on trial at Ontario Court of Justice and is denying any sexual contact with the girl. His trial resumes Jan. 8.

The woman testified Galloway was the first man — who came to her home — on her 13th birthday in October 2001, followed by Laronde and Dickens.

But the woman’s mom contradicted her, saying Dickens came first, Laronde next and Galloway last.

“I am relieved,” said Laronde, a disability pensioner who denied any sexual impropiety. Laronde’s lawyer, Cynthia Fromstein, added: “This was 100% the right outcome but it’s the most disturbing and troubling case I’ve ever heard.”

Canadian dad cancelled the babysitter when he found out it was a man; now being sued for breaching babysitter’s human rights

From Daily Mail: A single Canadian father has been accused of violating his province’s human rights act by questioning a prospective babysitter about his gender and age, according to court documents.

The father-of-two, identified only as ‘Todd F.’, is being investigated by the Alberta Human Rights Commission after a complaint was filed against him in 2017 by the babysitter, James Crynowski.

Todd posted an advertisement on Kijiji.com, a popular classified Canadian ad site, seeking a ‘babysitter wanted for evening Friday September 1’ for his two sons, then five and eight, as he was planning to meet a friend for dinner.

According to legal documents, Todd received several responses to the posting and among them was Crynowski’s, who listed skills such as CPR, first aid, a clean criminal record and seven years experience of caring for children.

Todd responded to Crynowski with a series of basic questions, asking him where he lived, how old he was, and if he was male or female.

‘Hi, I live in Edmonton. I’m male and 28 years old,’ Crynowski replied, but received no further responses from Todd.

According to his legal counsel, Todd’s dinner plans fell through and he no longer required a sitter, so felt no need to continue the interaction.

Instead of following up with Todd, Crynowski instead filed a formal complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission on September 1, claiming to have been discriminated because of his age and gender.

‘There have been many sleepless nights,’ Todd said in a statement to the Edmonton Journal Saturday. ‘I did not realize that people could object to me finding out all the relevant information I can about a potential babysitter, including their age and sex. I thought I was doing what was best for my young children.’

Todd, who is self-employed, said he rarely uses babysitters and in light of Crynowski’s complaint, he’s unlikely to use one again. ‘Just trying to learn enough about a potential new babysitter can get me in trouble and I need to ensure that my children are safe,’ he added.

The Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), a Canadian conservative legal advocacy organization specializing in Canadian constitutional law, is representing Todd on a pro-bono basis and sent a letter to the commission on Monday to have the complaint dismissed.

‘Thwarting parents from even inquiring about a babysitter’s gender or age is inconsistent with giving ‘utmost deference’ to parents’ preferences concerning a babysitter for their children,’ the letter said. ‘It is also inconsistent with the fact that both gender and age may each be bona fide occupational requirements in this context.’

As of Friday, the commission has not dismissed the case.

This is also not the first time Crynowski has filed such a claim. In a similar case back on May 23, 2014, he attempted to claim discrimination in relation to a mother’s advertisement seeking a babysitter for her five-year-old son.

When Crynowski replied to the ad, he was told that the woman was looking for a female sitter. He filed the complaint two days later, and the case went all the way to the Canadian Supreme Court until it was dismissed in May this year.

JCCF president John Carpay said parents need to be able to hire whoever they feel is appropriate to babysit their children. ‘The parents should have full discretion,’ he said. ‘If it is for a service in the home, you have to feel comfortable with a person coming into your home.’

He added: ‘It is unclear why the Human Rights Commission has now accepted Mr. Crynowski’s complaint against Todd, giving the precedent set by the test case.’

Media whipping up fear for 2020 elections: “Frightened by shootings, appalled at Trump, Americans are voting to leave – with their feet”

I wonder how many of these frightened Americans are just showing up at a country’s border and expecting to obtain illegal entry? Oh wait, they are applying for Visas. Guess only other countries are expected to determine who has the right to enter their country…

From Yahoo: Eleanor Pelta has secured Polish passports for herself and her two sons. Stephanie Schwab is planning an escape route via Spain. Elie Jacobs has begun to keep enough cash on hand to buy last-minute plane tickets to Israel for his family. Alex and Aussa Lorens are applying for work visas in Australia, while Josh Lewin is aiming for New Zealand.

And Kami Lewis Levin already has her bags packed and tickets purchased. She leaves next week, with her husband, three children and a dog, for a new home in Costa Rica.

Americans are not flocking to the exits, but some of them are thinking about it, and some are talking about it, and at least a few are acting on the idea. Google searches for terms like “how to move out of America” spiked this past weekend to levels not seen since November 2016, right after the presidential election, and last seen a decade ago during the Great Recession. And in dozens of interviews after the massacres in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, people who were born here spoke of their crystallizing desire to leave.

These are not recent immigrants who feel threatened by nationalist rhetoric coming from the White House and Congress, but for the most part middle-class or relatively affluent Americans disheartened by the turn in American politics since the 2016 election. And it is not necessarily Canada — the default destination for agitated Americans over the decades — where they are threatening to move, because work visa qualifications there are tight. Instead, they are casting a larger net across the globe.

“The text-message threads and FB message threads have surged with questions about how and when to leave,” said Jacobs, a 41-year-old public affairs consultant who lives in New Jersey with his wife and toddler, and who began looking to Israel as an “escape hatch” as soon as Donald Trump was elected, but whose stockpiling of cash took on new urgency this week.

For many, the exploration of the departure gates is a direct response to the current president of the United States and his party. Before 2016, Coloradans Alex and Aussa Lorens were saving up to buy a house; after that they turned their attention to qualifying for a 190 Skilled Nominated visa for Australia, which requires proving English proficiency, a skills assessment and an “expression of intent” letter to those Australian states that are specifically looking for workers in Alex’s industry, which is hospitality.

Among what the couple sees as the many attractions of Australian society — including universal health care and affordable private insurance, mandated parental leave, four weeks of vacation for all workers and strong limits on guns the Lorenses are drawn by the political culture, which, Aussa says, “protects them from a Trump-like outcome.”

“They do not have a major political party that is at all equivalent to our far-right Republicans,” she says. “Their conservative party is more like the moderate Democrats. They don’t argue about whether health care is a basic human right or whether climate change is real. They banned guns after a mass shooting.

For others, the motivation is what they describe as an increasing level of daily fear.

“The way things are going, it’s to where you can’t even take your family out in public because it’s just a matter of time,” says Josh Lewin, 34, a native of Murfreesboro, Tenn., who lives there now with his wife and four sons ages 4 to 14 and works selling commercial security systems. “I need to do something to protect the family and not have to worry about this day in and day out.”

“First it was a shooting once a year, then once every six months, then once a month, and now it’s every day,” he says. “We don’t even bat an eye as a country now. I would like to move somewhere where that isn’t true and my kids don’t have to be afraid.”

He is surprised to feel as he does, both because he knows that statistically the dangers to any one individual or family are quite small, and because he has never been one for strong political opinions, and lives among relatives and friends who are Trump supporters. In fact, he emphasizes, “I’m not trying to choose sides. I am the type to sit back and support whoever is piloting the ship because you want to support your president and not see him fail.”

He has kept his feelings to himself, he says, particularly at work, where other men wear handguns strapped to their ankles at the office and, according to his wife, “joke about mass shootings being a force of natural selection.”

The Lewins have rejected Australia because “they have huge spiders there,” Josh says, and he is about as scared of spiders as he is of mass shootings. He has set New Zealand as his goal, intrigued years ago by the popularity of the extreme sport of “drift triking” — riding nonmotorized Big Wheels-like contraptions down huge hills. (New Zealand does have spiders, but venomous species capable of harming humans are extremely rare.) More recently he has been attracted by the fact that “after one mass shooting there they took steps to make it not so easy for people to get ahold of weapons of war.”

And then, “after the shootings this weekend, I went from a 3 on the scale of how likely I was to actually move to a 6.”

Those who say they are serious about leaving are quick to add that they recognize the privilege that allows them to consider such a move at all.

“I am acutely aware of how not everyone can do this,” says 40-year-old Janelle Hanchett, a writer, who sold everything she owned in Northern California in July and moved with her husband, Charles MacDonald, a union ironworker, and their four school-age children to the Netherlands. “We are not rich, we have crippling student loans, but we had equity in a house and the means to pick up and leave.”

Tired of what Hanchett describes as “the specter of this rising authoritarian regime, and of feeling unsafe all the time,” they applied for a “freelance visa” that the government of the Netherlands created to thank America for liberation during World War II, and that allows Americans to live and work as freelancers. (If they become employed by a Dutch company full time, their status switches to a sponsored visa.)

“It feels saner, more humane,” she says of her new home in the city of Haarlem, the capital of the province of North Holland. “The people seem happier. And there aren’t guns.

Under the program, they are entitled to all the country’s benefits, including universal health care, a payment from the government of about 250 euros per child per quarter, and admission to a “Newcomer” school that costs 3 euros per month and helps children learn Dutch and transition to their new country. When they learned about the school, Hanchett says, “we started to cry from happiness.” The principal told them, “Americans always react this way.”

From our friends up north, eh: Parents say children can handle the “kink” at pride events

WARNING: The pictures that follow in this post are NSFW.

Remember their goal: Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

From HuffPo Canada: Each year, in the blazing sun of the Pride parade in Nelson, B.C., Pega Ren and her two young grandkids seek shade under their spinning rainbow parasols.

Ren, a semi-retired sex therapist, told HuffPost Canada the parasols were a magical find, and have come to symbolize the importance of this event for her family. Ren spoke joyfully of going to the dollar store, picking up all the rainbow ribbons and flags, decorating the roller skates and the stroller, and getting the costumes ready. “I can’t imagine a safer place for families to bring children,” she said of Pride.

A resounding chorus of voices — from within the queer community and not — would agree with this general sentiment about Pride parades and kids.

But in late May, one tweet turned it into a bigger conversation.
The post asked parade participants not to “sexualize” Pride and to leave their fetish and kink at home, for the sake of minors.

Anyone who has been to a parade has likely seen the procession of leather animal costumes, kinky costumes in every hue, and more skin than is normally exposed in public.

Although the post and account have since been deleted, the tweet got many people talking: How child-appropriate are Pride festivities? And why does this discussion hit a nerve for the LGBTQ+ community?

“At some level this has always been part of a much larger debate of what Pride is,” David Rayside, a retired politics and sexual diversity professor at the University of Toronto, told HuffPost Canada. “Pride has always had a kind of outrageous edge to it. And should we alter that? It is not the Santa Claus parade, and it never was. It shouldn’t be. It can’t be.”

That said, Rayside added, not only is it important for parents to bring their kids, but “I’ve seen thousands of kids at Pride, and I’ve never seen anyone fuss about what they see there.”

In fact, many parents would fuss at the thought of not bringing kids to these events.

“There is absolutely no reason not to take our kids to Pride — it’s a fun day, there are a lot of bubbles, rainbow streamers and enjoyable performances,” writer, educator, and publisher S. Bear Bergman told HuffPost Canada.

Plus, as queer parents, it’s one of their cultural festivals, added Bergman, who who attends Toronto Pride every year with his kids. “It’s their right as queer spawn. And as a parent, I might want to take my kids to Pride, because they might be lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer or two-spirit.”

Pride events are dynamic — with so many notes being played at once, a degree of dissonance can also be expected. No one knows this better than Parker Chapple, Executive Director of Calgary Pride.

As Canada’s fourth-largest and fastest growing Pride celebration, Calgary Pride works hard to be family-friendly, including events like Reading with Royalty and puppet-making.

When asked how they go about balancing the needs of various segments of the community, Chapple (who uses they/ them pronouns) laughed. “It’s hands-down one of the most challenging roles that any Pride director has,” they said.

The tensions around who and what “belongs” at Pride are heightened this year, as the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots stands in contrast to the consumer culture that has become synonymous with the season. After the June 1969 raid of New York gay bar the Stonewall Inn, a series of uprisings began, and sparked the gay liberation movement. The first Pride march took place one year after those raids.

“As an activist, I’ve always been acutely aware of what the parade and the festival is rooted in,” Chapple said.

And I’ve always passed that opportunity on to my children as a learning opportunity, so they can appreciate the work, the heartache, the celebration that our community put into gaining protection.”

Politics have a prominent place in Pride, Rayside said, but “it is also about outrage,” a time when some in the community express this “in ways that confront normal sensibilities.”

The freedom to do so is embedded within LGBTQ+ culture and history. These expressions are the most colourful during the parade.

Bergman defended these elements and their right to exist at a kid-friendly event. “First of all, nobody likes nakedness more than children,” Bergman said.

“On the list of things that I don’t want my children ever to be exposed to are: Compulsory heterosexuality, demonstrations of sexism, demonstrations of racism, demonstrations of ablism, violence. These are all way higher on the list than some homosexual’s tuchus.”

Putting on her sex therapist hat, Ren emphasized that Pride, from kink to nakedness, is an excellent opportunity for parents to do unbiased sex education. Bergman also pointed out that many children don’t even interpret most of what they’re seeing in a Pride parade as sexual, but rather as dress-up or fun. “Children benefit from seeing people loving one another, from seeing diversity and inclusion. Children suffer from seeing violence and fear, hatred and divisiveness,” Ren said.

“We found and built our tribe at these gatherings.”

Canadian researcher claims dodgeball is “legalized bullying”

From Fox News: The game of dodgeball is more than just a popular playground activity, it is a tool of bullying and oppression targeting students, a trio of Canadian researchers claim.

The researchers argue that there is a “hidden curriculum” of dodgeball that reinforces the oppression of those “perceived as weaker individuals through the exercise of violence and dominance.” They claim dodgeball – which pits two teams to eliminate each other by hitting the opposition with rubber balls – doesn’t actually help students.

“If you practice ganging up on people, over time you’ll esteem ganging up on people,” David Burns, a co-presenter of the study and a professor at the Kwantlen Polytechnic, told CTV News Vancouver. “If that’s what you want, then dodgeball is an excellent tool to that end.”

Professor David Burns

Burns – alongside fellow researchers David Burns, professor at the University of British Colombia, and Claire Robson, professor at Simon Fraser University – argues that dodgeball instead teaches students to dehumanize one another and create unsafe conditions in schools.

“Dodgeball is the only game where the human is the target,” Butler said. “No other games focus on it.” He added: “It’s tantamount to legalized bullying.”

The researchers acknowledged their report will be criticized by many who argue the game is fun, but they are adamant that things could be done differently.

“We’re not anti-competition or anti-challenge,” Robson said. “These things need to be done in an educational context.”

Their study was presented at an education conference organized by the Canadian Society for the Study of Education in Vancouver on Monday.
