US - Opted Out

US politics for the past year for immigration

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/dec/21/us-immigration-policy-2018-travel-ban-migrant-caravan

 

Even as those living in the US unlawfully remain targets, the administration has sought to redefine what legal immigration looks like, too, slowing or halting those seeking to come to the country for a job offer, through their relationship to a citizen, or to find a home as a refugee or asylee.

 

US and other countries bail on UN aggrement

 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2018/12/10/world/europe/un-migration-deal-morocco.amp.html

 

More than 60,000 migrants have died in hazardous journeys while trying to reach wealthier countries, Mr. Guterres said. “This is a source of collective shame,” he added.

 

Under Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a fiercely anti-immigrant leader, Hungary has dismissed the compact as a “pro-migration document.” Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia have also rejected the compact, as have Australia and Israel.

 

Note that this article talks only opinions and almost no facts about what the UN pact does.

United States

 

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/06/the-court-slices-a-narrow-ruling-out-of-masterpiece-cakeshop/5619

 

Recap on first case


First case for gay wedding cake. States that jack phillips refused to sell a wedding cake. It was for the purpose of the wedding message for the gay couple that he didn’t believe in. The ruling on the case was was that the baker ended up winning the case. But it didn’t resolve the issue between religious freedom and discrimination. Basically, the court ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commision had discriminated against religious freedom by being anti-religious in bias.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2018/08/15/baker-claims-religious-persecution-again-this-time-after-denying-cake-for-transgender-woman/

Jack Phillips denied doing cake for trangender "transformation"  cake from male to female where it showed the gender of the transitioned gender to female where the outside of the cake is blue and inside pink.

 

What does this mean for freedom?

What does this mean for anyone religious?

What does this mean for the 1st amendment?

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for redress of grievances."

Questions

 

Can Canada be trusted to move forward with projects in the future?

Will we always be fully dependent on selling oil to the US?

Where do we go from here?

United States Position on Gun Control and Laws

 

In Texas School Shooting, 10 Dead, 10 Hurt and Many Unsurprised - mention about highschool girl that mentions she knew her school could be next since “these shootings are happening everywhere.”

Thias doesn’t fit the narrative of ar-15’s since this was a shotgun and revolver

Bombs were found around the school

Why is the media making it sound like that this WILL happen everywhere

Gun control is dead

Get more resource / police to guard our gun free zones

Almost all gun “violence” happens in gun free zones

* Zionist Organization of America states "Never Again" title of david hogg book makes the parkland shooting sound way more devastating than the holocaust.

*Kyle Kashuv had a debate set up with David Hogg but naturally David Hogg opted out. He only plays with his friends and won't work with his enemies. Although allegedly CNN states it's because of a precious tweet that kyle had which "offended" people is why the debate was cancelled.

*Now because of shootings, our only source of protection is to have kids throw rocks and teachers have miniature baseball bats.
