Snapchats Austin Forget and Lauren Combs rescued a pet pig, then ate her.

MOLLY was a 3-year-old pot-bellied pig rescued from an abusive home. After nursing her back to health, a "no-kill" shelter in British Columbia adopted Molly to a creepy young couple in Duncan, Vancouver Island, who signed papers agreeing they wouldn't eat her. Then Snapchat pics turned up celebrating Molly being seasoned, cooked and served. The shelter sent constables to investigate but learned no laws had been broken because Austin Forget and Lauren Combs assured them that Molly had been killed humanely. Forget was more descriptive on Facebook where he declared "hahahahahah I killed the fucking pig" with a gun apparently. The public outcry has prompted both to delete their social media accounts and Forget is apologizing for his insensitivity which he blames on his youth. Trolls are weighing in that it's just bacon. And while we can condemn Austin and Lauren for being souless gourmands, they're no more inhuman than anyone who eats the intelligent and sentient pig, whether family pet or terrorized industrial farm internee.

Idle No More versus War On Terra

Rap News skewers environmental destruction of Canada and Australia, as alien invasions competing for first place in "War on Terra", praises IDLE NO MORE for rising against non-indigenous expropriation of the "Commonwealth".

Can Idle No More First Nations assert their sovereignty for real?

Here's an idea for First Nations rattling their chains with IDLE NO MORE. Declare your sovereignty for real. "Sovereignty" has become a meaningless descriptor, now counting puppet states of Iraq and Afghanistan. How did we expect George W. Bush to explain what sovereignty meant? Even he probably knew what it was supposed to mean, and so do you. Sovereignty doesn't mean captive reservations, rural ghettos, Gaza Strips or West Banks slowly being ethnically cleansed by attrition. Sovereignty means independent nation states, not dupes of duplicitous treaties. Chief Theresa Spense is right to hold out to meet with the Canadian Prime Minister and a representative of the English crown. First Nations leaders deserve to meet with fellow heads of state, if the treaty lands are truly sovereign.

Denver Canadian Consulate closes its doors to IDLE NO MORE round dance and a very polite letter

DENVER, COLORADO- Indigenous activists paused only one day before assembling a second IDLE NO MORE gathering to perform a round dance at the Canadian Consulate in Denver today, to deliver a letter urging the Canadian government and the British Crown (the Queen!) to meet with Chief Theresa Spence and end her hunger strike over recent legislation which gutted First Nation treaty protections. After a rally of dance, song and orations, a delegation sought to enter the consulate but was denied. After filling the downstairs lobby, being told picture-taking was not allowed, and the building's security crew receiving a squad of reinforcements from DPD, the activist were finally sent a representative to accept the letter without comment.

First Nations insurrection flash mob IDLE NO MORE hosting a round dance at a mall near you

DENVER, COLORADO- This was the scene in Denver's Cherry Creek Mall on Saturday, December 29, where a flash mob of over 300 Native Americans commemorated the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee, in solidarity with "IDLE NO MORE" demonstrations stretching from Canada to Mexico, where First Nation members are raising their voices to defend their land and sovereignty. 38070

Need another reason to boycott 900 lb bully Amazon? Censoring Wikileaks

Amazon booted Wikileaks from its cloud server service, at the behest of Zionist warmonger Joe Lieberman. Twittered Wikileaks in response: "If Amazon are so uncomfortable with the first amendment, they should get out of the business of selling books." The corporate media is already censoring "Cablegate" with misdirection, describing the leaked diplomatic cables as indelicate embarrassments, as opposed to incriminating revelations of America's imperialist anti-democratic outrages. The Interpol has declared an international manhunt of the Wikileaks founder based on scurrilous accusations of sexual misconduct, Canada is calling for Julian Assange's execution via US drone, our politicians want to prosecute the Australian Assange under the draconian 1917 US Espionage Act. Amazon's cowardly deed today is a reminder of the private sector's omniscient control over everyone's access to information. Imagine a world where whistleblowers are denied whistles. Shopping bags only please. On Amazon's internet no one can hear you scream. 20678

Queers Against Israeli Apartheid undaunted by Zionist intimidation

Organizers of the 2010 gay pride parade in Toronto have relented to allow the participation of QUEERS AGAINST ISRAELI APARTHEID. At first it was declared that the two words "Israeli Apartheid" would jeopardize their city subsidy and summon a perfect storm of angry Canadian Jews. Faced with queers determined to parade for their social cause in spite of the ban, Toronto Pride opted to honor their members' freedom of expression.

Should US torturers of 15-year-old combatant Omar Khadir stay unnamed?

Extending the jurisdiction of military tribunals to civilians and adversaries is not simply unpopular, it's illegal, and America's kangaroo courts in Guantanamo mock even self respect. Right now we're prosecuting Afghanistan combatant Omar Khadr, captured when he was age 15, for lobbing a grenade toward US invaders (are any of our GIs guilty of less?) meanwhile obscuring the identity of American soldiers culpable of torture and murder. Last week four key reporters were banned from Guantanamo proceedings for having revealed the name of "Interrogator #1" guilty of past episodes for abuse of detainees including a death. His name: US Army Specialist Joshua Claus. 16592

Yanks overseas pretend to be Canadian but how do you do that in Vancouver?

Since the overt militarization of Pax Americana, US citizens traveling the world are advised to pretend they're Canadians. It only took this week's unexpected team USA victory over Canada in men's Olympic hockey, to ignite anti-American feelings. Even before the games began, the USOC's USA House was the only hospitality venue whose address was not made public, conveniently too because it was safely not open to the public. Now visitors leaving USA House are reminded not to wear or behave in any fashion that would distinguish them as Americans as they make their way to their accommodations. 15085

Jokenhagen, the COP15 that wasn’t

You heard about the Yes Men successfully pulling off another stunt in Copenhagen? The delegates were fooled, even the media, and so unsurprisingly, the substance of their theatrics is being glossed over. While the reporters track the footprints to sort truth from facade, they are wiping all traces behind them. Url-shortening conduit bit.ly warns for example that clicking through might endanger your browser. The Yes Men prank Canada is as far as most news stories go. Why Canada -- is the more to the story. 12799

Canada welcomes Bush, bars Galloway

Canada refused to bar entry to Ex-president George Bush, then declined calls for his arrest for war crimes and prevented attempts by others to make citizen's arrests. But in the same breath, Canada denied entry to a prominent antiwar voice, British MP George Galloway, because HE was infandous. Clearly they have no standard at all. 7145

Canada’s Christian genocide against its native population

So sorry. Canada apologized for its Anglo Christian genocide against its native populations last year, but I wonder how many Christians anywhere in the world really took any notice? Playground bones force Canada to face genocide of Indian children Wonder how many Colorado folk even noticed the Canadian government apology?

Did you know Canada was under attack?

I never knew? Canada is under attack and needs to spend about 1/2 trillion dollars in the next two decades to protect itself form hostile places like Haiti and Afghanistan! Canada First Defence Strategy underlines this horrible danger and came up with this plan to bankrupt the Canadian people before the Big, Bad Wolf gets them. 5051

New Police World Order comes home

JUST IN: The Springs' own inveterate activist Mary Sprunger-Froese was turned away at the Canadian border owing to her political criminal record. She and her husband Peter who is a Canadian citizen, were paying a visit to his family in Saskatchewan on the occasion of his brother's wedding. They borrow a car for this semiannual trip. Peter sometimes makes the journey by bike. This time Canadian border agents made an issue of Mary's extensive civil disobedience arrest record and wouldn't permit her entry. The couple had to turn back and subsequently got caught in the interstate closures due to weather. More after they get home.
