Donald Trump’s Election Win – Touching the Wellspring of Public Anger by Conrad Black NOV 10, 2016

It is not such a surprise that Americans have elevated Donald Trump to the headship of their country.

Clinton Trump Debate Shows Deplorable State of US Politics by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 27, 2016

Cornwall Ontario – I watched the debate between US Presidential candidates Hilary Rodham Clinton and Donald Trump. It was not the reality show gore fest that many were expecting.   It wasn’t very entertaining or informative.    I don’t think it ultimately will change the voter turn out or results.   It did highlight a […]

Conrad Black : Exaggerated Reaction to Brexit from the EU JUNE 26, 2016

Conrad Black : Exaggerated Reaction to Brexit from the EU  JUNE 26, 2016

The absurdly exaggerated reaction to the British vote to leave the European Union demonstrates the complacency and incompetence of the governing elites in Britain and Western Europe, and how those attitudes rippled out, unchallenged, in the international media and financial markets. There is some analogy with the comeuppance given the American political class by the […]

Syrian Refugee Debates Bring Out The Racisim & Ignorance in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig

It’s sad when pundits…or hacks as in the case of Todd Lihou of the Seaway Media try to make hay on the suffering and misfortune of others. I  just read a very strange and bizarre editorial by Mr. Lihou on the Syrian refugee crisis and his suggestion that there’s plenty O room here in Cornwall. […]
