Took a while (he was on vacation) but Jean Francois Lisee, head of the Parti Quebecois read the statistics we posted last week. You know, the ones that say the French language is not the only game in town.
Well, he had nothing short of a hissy fit today, accusing everyone and his uncle for the seemingly lack of people speaking the French language here in la belle province. He particularly blamed the Liberal party saying that when ‘refugees’ come here they should either speak French or leave.
Here’s a headline for Lisee: The world is a very small place today, young French Canadians need to speak English and they know it. Plus ‘refugees’ also want to speak English as even they know English is one of the seven most common languages spoken in the world.
Here are a few statistics: There are 1.39 billion Chinese speakers who don’t care a hoot about French. There are 527 million English speaking people and guess what? Only 118 million French speakers.
Lisee basically buried himself today with those comments as people are not interested in any talk about Bill 101 or, as he wants to rename it, Bill 202. He best take the needle out of his arm and move on. Better still, move out.
Finally, at long last, somebody woke up about the Benghazi-Hillary disaster. A federal judge has ordered the State Department to search the “state.gov” email accounts of Hillary Clinton aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan for records related to Benghazi.
It appears that although Hillary’s server at home was searched, there was not a comprehensive search of government systems for relevant messages in the official email accounts of Clinton’s top aides. By this time, Hillary must have made sure any remnant of those emails was erased but ya never know. She lied about the whole affair and literally got away with murder. It’s one of the reasons the American public did not trust her…crooked Hillary.
Obama, who is vacationing in the Hamptons, must be crazed today. Trump gave him a major dig when he addressed the whole North Korean issue. You may recall (or if you don’t we will help you), Obama was impotent when it came to making foreign policy decisions.
While many readers of this blog may not like Trump (an understatement), his remarks today were exactly correct. He was referring to his fire and fury statement a couple of days ago.
Here’s what he said today at an impromptu press conference: “Frankly the people that were questioning that statement (fire and fury), was it too tough? Maybe it wasn’t tough enough. They’ve (North Korea) been doing this to our country for a long time, many years. It’s about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries. So if anything, maybe that statement wasn’t tough enough.”
Trump is not a politician and does not go by their rules. He shoots from the hip and in this case, is right. Kim Jong Un has been holding the world hostage for years and it’s enough. We’re sure that backroom talks are taking place as we speak, but on the surface Trump has said what many have been thinking and acted upon it.
It appears that the airline industry is waking up from its great slumber when it comes to overbooking.
After that huge fiasco in Chicago when they hauled a doctor off the plane kicking and screaming and badly injured him, United has come up with a new and actually humane overbooking policy.
United with call passengers as far as five days before their trip to see if they want to give up their seat on full flights, in return for a voucher up to $250.
The airline promises to get them on a later flight the same day, and then the airline can resell that discounted ticket to a much higher fare-paying passenger who needs that seat at the last minute. Of course they are still money-hungry, but at least passengers have a fighting chance.
Remember Paul Manaford? He was Trump’s campaign manager for a very short period of time. About two weeks ago FBI agents raided his home in Virginia to secure documents related to the wide-ranging probe into Russian interference in last year’s presidential election. Blanche, did you ever wonder why this wasn’t leaked anywhere? Could it be because they didn’t find anything?
The FBI is looking for any dribble that will connect the Trump campaign to Russia because the Democrats think Trump’s handlers rigged the election. Let’s correct that. Democrats would like nothing more than to see something connecting Trump to Russia but alas, after all this time – months and months – they have come up empty-handed. In fact, it was their very own Debbie Wasserman Schulz who got caught rigging things while trying to get rid of zaidy Bernie.
Good Shabbos We’ll talk…
