Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson comes out as gay in moving op-ed

Jim Watson, the Mayor of Ottawa, Canada has come out as gay. In an emotional op-ed published by the Ottawa Citizen, the 58-year-old opened up about the struggles he has faced with coming to terms with his sexuality, from being bullied at school to finding it difficult to confide in friends due to his family moving around a lot because of his father’s job. “As I look back over the years, there were some telltale signs that I wasn’t straight,” he wrote, candidly. “As a grade 7 student, I remember...

A Cyberattack Could Wreak Destruction Comparable to a Nuclear Weapon

Photo by Nahel Abdul Hadi on Unsplash People around the world may be worried about nuclear tensions rising, but I think they’re missing the fact that a major cyberattack could be just as damaging – and hackers are already laying the groundwork. With the U.S. and Russia pulling out of a key nuclear weapons pact – and beginning to develop new nuclear weapons – plus Iran tensions and North Korea again test-launching missiles, the global threat to civilization is high. Some fear a new nuclear arms race. That threat is serious – but...

GREENLAND. Trump wants to buy Greenland from Denmark. Denmark says it’s not for sale: “Talk of a Greenland purchase was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

Trumpanomics is a flop: “Neither I nor anyone else is predicting a replay of the 2008 crisis. It’s not even clear whether we’re heading for recession. But the bond...

Gay Republican group endorses Donald Trump for re-election

A gay Republican group has endorsed Donald Trump for re-election, claiming that he has followed through on changes that “benefit the LGBTQ community”. In an op-ed for the Washington Post, Robert Kabel and Jill Homan of Log Cabin Republicans praised Trump for what they see as advances in LGBT+ rights that have occurred under his leadership. In particular, the group praised Trump for committing to “eliminate” HIV/AIDS earlier this year. “This scourge decimated a generation of gay men in the United States and continues to inflict pain, suffering and death...

BARRED. Israel bars Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from entering country, at Trump’s suggestion. “The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Radio. It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!— Donald J....
