Another Palse Plague

Here’s a look back to 2010 and the rise of Theresa Tam as director of the Canadian Center for Emergency Preparedness and Response. In essence, she’s the Canadian answer to Anthony Fauci.

The focus is on a film — called Outbreak: Anatomy Of A Plague — comparing a modern pandemic with the 1885 smallpox epidemic that heavily hit Montreal. More from Jamie Dlux.

YElon Synthesis

BOOM! Ye is revealing the method. I go over the symbol that got him banned from Twitter and the tentacles that come off of it. This is DEEP!

Much focuses on the obscure Raelian Movement, founded by Claude Vorilhon, as well as a New World Order synthesis that combines elements of technocracy and a New Age. More from Amazing Polly.

Canada: The Dumpster Fire

Black Pigeon Speaks addresses the dumpster fire as Canada, the Globalist experiment, prepares to vote.

Stefan Molyneux, host of the world’s largest philosophy conversation, leads off a powerful series on the Canadian Election with an analysis of a key issue for Canadian voters: IMMIGRATION! Close to 22 percent of Canadians are foreign-born — meaning immigrants represent twice the percentage of the population, compared to their numbers in the United States.

In Part II of this same series, Stefan Molyneux examines the relationship of Justin Trudeau’s Liberals to the rule of law in Canada:

– SNC Lavalin Obstruction of Justice
– Free Speech
– Gun Control

SNC Lavalin – a giant Montreal construction firm – was accused of two major crimes based on its association with the Qaddafi regime: Paying $48 million in bribes to Libyan government officials, and defrauding the Libyan government (and other entities) of “property, money or valuable security or service” worth $130 million.

Deferred prosecution agreement = no criminal charges.

In the leaders’ debate, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer accused Justin Trudeau of lying to Canadians when the SNC-Lavalin allegations first surfaced:

“You looked Canadians in the eye and told Canadians that the allegations in the Globe and Mail were false,” Scheer said to Trudeau.

Trudeau replied: “They were false.”

This will surprise the Ethics Commissioner, who ruled otherwise.

Babes of Burlesque: 11


An explosive dynamo, Cherry Typhoon brings an original, high-energy presence to the stage. She grew up in Tokyo, studying traditional Japanese dance forms, but her career really detonated after she embraced burlesque. Tassel twirling up a storm, whether she’s wearing a G-string or a kimono, she has toured widely across Europe and North American, and currently is based out of Montreal, Canada. Here she is at the 2012 Tease-O-Rama in San Francisco.

Monsieur Redneck

Monsieur Redneck, the USA’s very own Jeff Foxworthy, takes his unique brand of comedy north of the border to Montreal, Canada. “For the record,” Foxworthy says, “my definition of redneck: It is a glorious absence of sophistication. … And you can easily spot the differences between rednecks and sophisticated people, because sophisticated people have retirement plans, whereas rednecks, we play the lottery. That is our retirement plan.” Be sure and return to LOL next Tuesday for another dose of the lighter side of life. — The Wickel

Babes of Burlesque: 55


This blonde bombshell from Montreal turns the spotlight on the glamour of burlesque. Her feathered and bejeweled costumes are exquisite to behold, but, of course, she looks even more radiant after she’s taken them off. She’s enamored with vintage burlesque and enjoys creating grandiose, spectacular shows. Little wonder she’s in hot demand around the world, from Shanghai to Paris, from Berlin to Chicago.

Here she is wowing and working up the crowd at the Windy City Burlesque Fest in 2010. For such a demure damsel, she sure slides and glides with ease, quickly transforming into a dynamo.

Protests Spur Montreal Debate

Massive student protests in Montreal extending over much of 2012 have spurred a government crackdown on free speech, intensifying the debate over finding the right balance between protecting political dissent and restoring order. The protests, aimed against university tuition hikes, have been mostly peaceful, but incidents of vandalism occurred, and some demonstrators blocked access to public schools and bridges. In response, Quebec’s Liberal provincial government passed Bill 78, which imposed tough measures against the protesters, including stiff fines and restrictions against mobilizing in designated places.

Bill 78 has served as a lightning rod for criticism, condemned as a violation of free speech by the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. But many residents welcomed the measure, having grown weary of the protests disrupting everyday commerce in Canada’s second largest city, with a population pushing 3.5 million. Reason.TV traveled to Montreal to explore the controversy and to interview the principals in the conflict, among them the “Anarchopanda,” a junior college philosophy professor dressed in a panda costume who frequently intervened in an effort to diffuse potential violence between students and riot police.
