Donald Trump protesters, supporters clash violently outside California rally

Police car smashed, at least 4 people arrested outside packed event in Costa Mesa

Raucous crowds of protesters took to the streets late Thursday in California as Donald Trump brought his Republican presidential campaign to conservative Orange County after sweeping the Northeast primaries.


Dozens of protesters were mostly peaceful as Trump gave his speech inside the Pacific Amphitheater. After the event, however, the demonstration grew rowdy and spilled into the streets.

At least four people were arrested and one Trump supporter had his face bloodied in a scuffle as he tried to drive out of the arena. One man jumped on a police car, leaving its front and rear windows smashed and the top dented in and other protests sprayed graffiti on a police car and the venue’s marquee.

We shold be protecting and nurturing our children, not pepper spraying them.” “Oil tycoon and conservative mega-donor Charles Koch had kind words for both Bill and Hillary Clinton in an interview Sunday, saying there was an outside chance he could support her in November. We would have had to believe her actions would be quite different from her rhetoric. Let me put it that way,” he said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “But on some of the Republican candidates we would – before we could support them, we’d hae to believe their actions will be quite different from the rhetoric we’ve heard so far.” — CNN, April 24, 2016.

Christy Clark slams Trump on trade, warns of ‘poisoned’ relations

Donald Trump has called NAFTA a ‘disaster’ that ‘shouldn’t exist,’ worrying the B.C. premier

By John Paul Tasker, CBC News Posted: May 07, 2016 5:00 AM ET

B.C. Premier Christy Clark is taking presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to task for his anti-trade stance — equating it with building a wall between the U.S. and Canada.

“It’s not helpful when down in the States there are serious presidential candidates who are talking about building a wall between Canada and the United States. Trade barriers are just another kind of wall,” Clark said in an interview with Chris Hall on CBC Radio’s The House.

“I’d remind Americans that America was never made great, and no American president is remembered as great, because he built walls.”

The comments come as Canada and the U.S. are still haggling over a new softwood lumber trade agreement. Clark said Friday that she’s hopeful the two sides can craft a deal by summer’s end before presidential politics heat up further.

Canada’s State Broadcaster is making fewer and fewer articles available for comment. Those that are still open for comment tend to be articles with absolutely no relevance, such as a story about an British icebreaker being named “Boaty McBoatface.”

Today, CBC had several stories up on its website regarding Donald Trump. Most comments were disabled, perhaps because the comments on stories that are open are not going MotherCorp’s way.

The overwhelming tone of the comments are pro-Trump. Canadians are not anti-Trump and are demanding change in their own country as well. Comments that disparaged or insulted Trump not only had pro-Trump replies, but had significantly more down-votes than up-votes (the “dislike” button is a new innovation to, although they have yet to discover an “edit” button).

Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly urges change at CBC, CRTC to boost Canadian content in digital age

Changes could ‘strengthen the creation, discovery and export of Canadian content in a digital world’

CBC News Posted: Apr 23, 2016 7:25 PM ET

Canada’s Liberal government is prepared to overhaul the country’s laws governing broadcasting, media and cultural industries, with Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly announcing Saturday a public consultation on how to “strengthen the creation, discovery and export of Canadian content in a digital world.”


“Canada’s cultural and creative industries are important drivers of innovation and a vibrant part of our economy,” says Joly

“As we adjust to the realities of rapid technological advances and changing consumer behaviour, I am launching consultations to better understand the challenges and opportunities brought on by this transformation.”

Happy days are here again for Canadian broadcasters (chiefly the CBC) now that The Natural Governing Party is back in office. And the CBC is not about to let a bunch of malcontent comment forum contributors spoil its party.

Let’s get started.

Canada Revenue Agency’s case against KPMG over offshore ‘sham’ delayed — again

Accounting firm still won’t hand over remaining names of wealthy clients despite judge’s order

By Harvey Cashore, Kimberly Ivany, Katie Pedersen, CBC News Posted: Apr 10, 2016 4:53 PM ET

The Canada Revenue Agency’s long-dormant court action against accounting firm KPMG, which appeared to have been resurrected last September after media reports exposed delays in the case, won’t go to court anytime soon, CBC News has learned.

A judge first ordered KPMG in February 2013 to hand over to the CRA the names of all the multimillionaire Canadians caught using an offshore tax dodge set up by the accounting firm in the Isle of Man, a scheme the agency alleges was a “sham” and “intended to deceive” the treasury.

Brussels attacks: Belgian prosecutors charge 3 men with terror offences

Solidarity rally cancelled as police forces too strapped

Thomson Reuters Posted: Mar 26, 2016 10:18 AM ET

Belgian prosecutors have charged three men with terrorist offences, including a suspect who local media said appeared on security footage with two suicide bombers at Brussels airport shortly before they detonated their bombs.

Prosecutors named the third man as Faycal C. while Belgian media identified him as Faycal Cheffou. 

The media reports said he was the man wearing a hat and a light-coloured jacket in last Tuesday’s airport picture that showed three men pushing baggage trolleys bearing luggage.

Prosecutors said Faycal C. had been charged with involvement in a terrorist group, terrorist murder and attempted terrorist murder. They would not confirm the Belgian media reports about his identity.

Belgian media are reporting the suspect referred to in the arrest warrant issued Saturday is Fayçal Cheffou and that his image was captured by a surveillance camera shortly before the explosions at the main airport in Brussels. (Belgian Federal Police via Getty Images)

His home had been searched though no weapons or explosives had been found, they said. 2016-03-28 03_21_27-Brussels attacks_ Belgian prosecutors charge 3 men with terror offences - World

From October 1988 to September 1994 the voices of representatives from Sinn Féin and several Irish republican andloyalist groups were banned by the British government from being broadcast on television and radio in the United Kingdom. The restrictions, announced by the Home Secretary, Douglas Hurd, on 19 October 1988, covered eleven organisations based in Northern Ireland and followed a heightened period of violence in the history of the Troubles, as well as the government’s belief in a need to prevent Sinn Féin from using the media for political advantage.

Broadcasters quickly found ways around the ban, chiefly by dubbing the voice of anyone who was prevented from speaking with the voice of an actor. The legislation did not apply during election campaigns, and under certain other circumstances. The restrictions caused difficulties for British journalists who objected to censorship in various other countries, such as Iraq and India. (Wikipedia)

Response to bombings shows fragility of European unity

Some say countries must pull closer together while others push to take back national sovereignty

By Megan Williams, for CBC News Posted: Mar 25, 2016 11:59 AM ET

As a relentless drizzle washed away the chalked messages of solidarity at Brussels’ Place de la Bourse on Friday, two tightly bound yet antithetical responses to this week’s attacks emerged in the aftermath, revealing with tense clarity the fragility of the grand project of European unity.

Both responses were expressed by the hundreds of mourners who came to lay flowers at the makeshift memorial site, as well as by those in corridors of power across Europe.

And, experts say, they will have a profound and definitive effect on the survival of the European Union.

On the one hand is the now-unanimous chorus of European countries saying they need to pull closer together, to fully share intelligence and tightly co-ordinate police bodies across the continent.

Canada child benefit: How to calculate what your family will get

Online calculator only provides an ‘illustration’ of benefit amounts

By Peter Zimonjic, CBC News Posted: Mar 23, 2016 4:30 PM ET

…(A) family’s actual child benefit is calculated based on a family’s adjusted net income, which is the total net family income less any taxable benefits, such as the universal child care benefit, and plus any repayments to government on benefits such as the registered disability savings plan. 

The Canada child benefit was the centrepiece of the federal government’s attempt to help the middle class. It kicks into effect on Canada Day and will increase payments to most Canadian families with children 17 and under.

This new tax-free benefit replaces both the income-tested tax-free Canada child tax benefit and the universal child care benefit, which was taxable.

The benefit is designed to provide more assistance to low-income families. The more a family earns the less they will receive in benefits.

Federal budget 2016: Liberals push deficit to spend big on families, cities

Tories call Justin Trudeau’s 1st budget ‘a bad day for taxpayers’ as spending increases

By Janyce McGregor, CBC News Posted: Mar 22, 2016 4:14 PM ET

The first budget from Justin Trudeau’s government finds the Liberals compromising some of their election promises to keep others, laying out a longer and larger string of deficits to begin the kind of long-term investments they say Canada needs.

While the big ticket items match the platform that helped the Liberals win a majority last October, other commitments aren’t ready to roll out.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau called the plan “reasonable and affordable,” despite the red ink washing across the otherwise sunny tone of his rookie budget.


“Canadians told us two things: they said ‘help me and my family’ and ‘make investments for the future,'” he told reporters before delivering his budget speech. 

“What we’re also going to do is be prudent along the way.”

Prudent was not the word Conservatives used while reacting from the Opposition bench.

“This is a bad day for the taxpayers of Canada,” interim leader Rona Ambrose said. “What we’re seeing now is reckless spending without a job creation plan and no actual plan in the budget to return to a balance.”

The Tories said that in total taxes were going up by “at least $1.3 billion a year.” The Liberals broke their election promise to contain the deficit to $10 billion annually, they said.

Quoting “One of the first orders of business of the new Liberal government was to abandon enforcement of the First Nations Transparency Act. This act was passed to ensure that the members of indigenous communities were able to know what was happening to the money that was being given to them. Now they are going to throw $8.4 billion at them with no accountability of how it is spent. Anyone would be naive to believe that without any accountability, the majority of this money will not end up in private bank accounts, through some sort of graft. Very little of it will be left to help the people it was intended for.” Do you think “first nations communities” would see an improvement in their standard of living if they became taxpayers? I mean, we’re always being told how taxes pay for clean water, good roads, schools, fire departments, etc. And if we didn’t pay taxes, we would have none (of) those things. I guess people who say that are correct.

FBI says it may not need Apple’s help to decrypt San Bernardino shooter’s phone

Agency asks judge to delay Tuesday hearing

The Associated Press Posted: Mar 21, 2016 7:49 PM ET

The government has been adamant for weeks: FBI investigators need to unlock an encrypted iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino attackers, and Apple Inc. was the only one that could do it.

In a stunning reversal on Monday, federal prosecutors asked a judge to halt a much-anticipated hearing on their efforts to force Apple to unlock the phone. The FBI may have found another way, and Apple’s cooperation may no longer be needed, according to court papers filed late Monday, less than 24 hours before Tuesday’s hearing.

“An outside party” came forward over the weekend and showed the FBI a possible method to access the data on Syed Rizwan Farook’s encrypted phone, according to the filing.

Why is the phone identified as “Syed Rizwan Farook’s encrypted phone” when in fact the phone is owned by the Corporation of the County of San Bernardino (i.e. his work phone)? Farook’s personal phone was destroyed and if he was dumb enough to leave his master evil terror plans on his monitored work phone, then I really don’t think we need to worry about the intellectual capacity of “terrorists” anywhere.

Quoting “Privacy is a quaint old notion. It’s gone forever.”Simple. Don’t use facebook. Don’t use your real name in comment forums. And don’t store your evil terrorist master plans to take over the universe in an i-phone owned by your municipal government employer.

Quoting “Translation – patriotic Apple employee steps forward to fight terrorism.”Uh, no. Try the “patriotic” NSA data center workers a few hundred miles north of San Bernardino. You know, the ones the u.s. federal government printed billions of dollars to build in order to “fight terrorism?”

Quoting “If another attack by a terrorist who was known to and in contact with Farook happened before the FBI got access to the content of Farkook’s phone Apple’s privacy concerns aren’t going to get much sympathy. That such an attack might occur in the meantime may not be likely but it’s not implausible. Apple’s argument is they can’t trust the FBI to keep the encryption from being used for improper purposes. Perhaps not, but how much can you trust terrorists not to launch another attack or for that matter hinder any criminal investigation. If this goes to the Supreme Court my gut feeling is that Apple will lose. An 18th century guarantee is just one more example (like the 2nd amendment) in which an entrenched right has outlived it’s usefulness in a 21st century world. I liked it better when our rights were protected by precedent and tradition.” — Well, golly gee, maybe the Corporation of the County of San Bernardino’s i-phone Farook (used) has the pictures, names and addresses of the WHITE male shooters who were originally reported to have carried out the crime before Farook’s name somehow got involved.

Quoting “Is this the same FBI that secretly stole 40,000 bitcoins and at the same time said that bitcoin is not a real currency and that it is only used by drug dealers?” — Yes. It is also the same federal bureau of incineration that murdered 76 innocent men, women and CHILDREN using CS tear gas (a chemical weapon whose use during war is a war crime) on April 19, 1995.

Federal budget 2016: 5 things to watch for today

Liberal spending plan expected to focus on middle class, strategic infrastructure spending

By Kathleen Harris, CBC News Posted: Mar 22, 2016 5:00 AM ET

The Liberal government will table its first budget today — a crucial spending plan that will brand the party for better or worse during a challenging economic period.

Expect it to echo and put a price tag on key themes from the party’s campaign platform: strategic investments for long-term economic growth, jobs and productivity; measures to boost the middle class and lift children out of poverty; and shifting to a green economy.

But all eyes will be on the fine print details of how much — and how fast — the Liberal government will deliver.

“This is very critical. It sets the stage and the tone for moving forward,” Conservative MP and natural resources critic Candice Bergen told CBC News

Would somebody in the Liberal Party executive kindly walk Justin to the exit and replace him with somebody who won’t put this country in the poor house once and for all? Goodale, Garneau, anybody. An $18-billion BEFORE any new spending? Are these people out of their flippin’ skulls?

Quoting “Watch for justin spending hard earned taxpayers dollars on things that put him and Sophie on the front page more often.” — Not sure what The Trudeaus are more interested in: page one? Or Page Six? One thing’s for sure: Justin’s gone Hollywood.
