Doug Ford is Ontario's next premier

Source: Toronto Star

The province of Ontario is now a Ford nation.

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford capped an improbable rise to power Thursday, winning the Ontario election with a majority government and banishing Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals into political oblivion after almost 15 years in office.

“This is incredible. My friends, this victory belongs to you. Tonight the people of Ontario have spoken. You have come together around one common vision of Ontario,” Ford, 53, told cheering supporters in Etobicoke.

“We will work every single day for a better Ontario,” said the rookie leader, who only took the helm on March 10 after the resignation of Patrick Brown.

Inexplicable that Canadians would do this in any form seeing how well "right-wing populism" is working in the US.

'She will not be missed': Obituary says that this woman 'abandoned' her children

[link:http://www.kansas.com/news/nation-world/national/article212570874.html|

The obituary published in the Redwood Falls Gazette — a newspaper from Minnesota — states that Dehmlow was born on March 19, 1938, and married her husband Dennis Dehmlow in 1957, according to Click2Houston.

Then comes the next line.

"In 1962 she became pregnant by her husband's brother Lyle Dehmlow," it reads, "and moved to California."

RI State Rep calls Parkland shooting survivor "dummy" on Twitter

http://www.abc6.com/story/38024330/ri-state-rep-calls-parkland-shooting-survivor-dummy-on-twitter


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) -- An outspoken state lawmaker and fierce defender of the Second Amendment is facing backlash over his choice of words on Twitter, directed at a student survivor of the Parkland, Florida school tragedy.

In the wake of the deadly shooting over the weekend at a waffle house in Nashville, Republican Rep. Mike Chippendale of Foster--and Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez, sparred on Twitter over the role of guns in keeping people safe.

Regarding the waffle house shooter, Gonzalez argued "the local police say a man at the scene wrestled his gun away - looks like you don't need to arm a teacher to stop a shooting."

Chippendale fired back, saying "if he did have a gun - the police still wouldn't be searching for the gunman, and the entire region wouldn't be on lockdown - dummy."

***************************************************

There's a reason we have something like nine elected Republicans in this state.

Police investigating possible hate crime in New York City subway assault

[link:https://www.yahoo.com/news/police-investigating-possible-hate-crime-new-york-city-subway-assault-043052124.html|



The New York City Police Department is investigating an incident involving a Hispanic man, who was allegedly beaten and pushed onto the subway tracks Friday night at Manhattan’s Union Square subway station.

According to the NYPD, the suspect is a black man wearing a red hat and red T-shirt that displayed President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” The suspect shouted racial slurs at the victim.

A press release sent out by the NYPD on Saturday said the incident occurred after the 24-year-old victim “engaged in a verbal dispute” with the suspect on board a “4” train as it approached the Union Square station.

The NYPD said the suspect “made multiple derogatory statements regarding the victim’s ethnicity” during the argument. After the victim got off the train, police said the suspect followed him onto the platform and “punched him on his head multiple times” before pushing the victim onto the tracks.





A black Trump fan. Okay....

Lets not hail Stormy as a hero

I hope and pray she’s one of the last nails in the coffin. Make no mistake.

But the exchange in the interview where she talks about walking in the room and seeing Trump, that fat revolting fuck, sitting on the bed and all she can do is say “oh look what I’ve gotten myself into” and then has sex with him is one of the most pathetic things I’ve ever heard someone cop to.

Mississippi 9-year-old allegedly shoots teen sister to death over video game controller

A teenage Mississippi girl whose 9-year-old brother allegedly shot her over a video game has died, according to ABC Tupelo affiliate WTVA-TV.

Dijonae White, 13, died at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Tupelo Sunday evening after the boy allegedly shot her in the head during an argument Saturday over the video game’s controller, Monroe County officials told the station.

Officers responded to the scene around 1 p.m. Saturday and learned that White’s brother had allegedly grabbed a gun and shot his sister in the back of the head after she refused to hand over the controller, according to WTVA.

The children’s mother was in another room preparing lunch when the incident occurred, Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told WTVA.
