Brigitte Gabriel: "... throw political correctness in the garbage where it belongs!"

Frank Gaffney and Brigitte Gabriel respond to questions from a young Muslim woman in the audience of a Heritage Foundation panel on the Benghazi attack:

Predictably the left was 'outraged' on behalf of the Muslim woman and Islam.  Dana Milbank at the WaPo characterized the Heritage panel session as an "assault" that devolved into "...the ugly taunting of a woman in the room who wore an Islamic head covering".  Here's Politico's response to Milbank's column.

Gabriel's rant was certainly strongly voiced but it had the benefit of being true.  And the Muslim woman's comments at the end of the video show no hint that she felt intimidated or "assaulted".

Justin Trudeau's NEP II - just like dear old dad

Ezra Levant:
... His dad called it the National Energy Program, and claimed it was for national sovereignty reasons, or whatever excuse worked with the media of the day.

It’s 2014, so the excuse now is “the environment.”

Trudeau announced his plans for a carbon tax last year in Calgary — at the Petroleum Club no less. It was a shocking announcement — but not a single other media outlet reported it, except a brief mention on the Globe and Mail’s website.  ...

More from Lorrie Goldstein and Eric Duhaime.  And here's a video of Lorrie Goldstein with Faith Goldy.

Clear as mud

William Watson:
Even people who may not like it ...  seem happy the claim is finally settled.

In Canadian justice, however, “settled” is a relative term....

... Last week’s decision may clarify the guidelines for establishing aboriginal title, and maybe effectively broadens such title, but it’s going to be a long time and legions of lawyers before all such title is clear. And even once it is, there will still be lawyers, just to adjudicate it all.

Obama's (latest) insult to Canada

... sending his smarmy Chicago bag-man to Ottawa as Ambassador:
... [in] a recent Q&A session between Bruce Heyman, the new U.S. Ambassador to Canada, and Frank McKenna ...
... on display that night in Ottawa: President Obama’s contempt for Canada.   ...

Mr. McKenna suggested that if the Canada/U.S. relationship was a marriage, then the U.S. might be happy, but Canada had some problemsMr. Heyman’s response was reminiscent of a bizarro episode of I Love Lucy, with him casting himself as a frustrated but patient Desi trying to talk down his crazy wife ...

Mr. Obama – primarily due to his climate legacy obsessions – is one of the most anti-Canadian presidents in history... in sending to Ottawa a man who appears to mistake smarmy dismissal for diplomacy, has ... made clear how little he thinks about – and of — Canada.
