Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.
Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.
It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”
At the same time, it deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates child protection services consider only the child’s own “creed” or “religion” when assessing the best interests of the child.
‘We cannot and must not pretend things can continue as they are. Things need to change and they need to change in four important ways.’
But at least two police officers on scene stood up to the terrorists. One officer who was seriously injured, stabbed in multiple places, reportedly fought them until he was forced to the ground.
The patrons of the bar were also very brave, throwing things at the attackers until police with guns arrived.
They arrived quickly and took out the terrorists very quickly, but it still reportedly took eight minutes.
“To all scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the president of the United States, I want to say that they will find in France a second homeland. I call them: Come and work here, with us, to work together on concrete solutions for our climate, our environment. I can assure you, France will not give up the fight.”
Relax, he only wants the ones who work for a living.
What a crock. I’m not sure how, exactly, the US pulling out of this thing gets a reaction like this. I mean, it doesn’t mean the thing has to stop. All these other countries can do their best. China and India aren’t going to change anything, but the US pulling out is suddenly the end of the world.
Oh! That’s right! They want our money for it! How silly of me! As usual, they want to shaft the hell out of the US while forcing us to fund it.
But please, libs, move to France. Take your socialism over there. You’ll fit in real well with other countries that want to spend our money instead of their own.
1. Under the accord, the U.S. had a target of reducing its carbon emissions to 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2025. That alone would have resulted in “extreme changes in energy use” because “even Mr. Obama’s bevy of anti-carbon regulations would get the U.S. to a mere 45% of its target,” per The Wall Street Journal editorial board.
2. The accord would have required the countries involved to raise their carbon emission-cutting goals every five years. According to The Daily Signal, the Obama administration intended to eventually curb carbon emissions by 80%, essentially North Korea levels.
3. The accord is non-binding legally, but activist courts may have used it as a legal weapon. Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro noted that Trump’s White House counsel, Donald McGahn, argued that “that courts could theoretically use the Paris Accord to strike down Trump’s attempted rollback of carbon emissions regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency.” Despite the Left’s insistence to the contrary, this could have been a real possibility, as the judiciary’s record of late shows a preference toward policy rather than the law itself (ie Trump’s travel ban). Shapiro also pointed out that the Left is acting as if “the world will burn up” for leaving the accord, which begs the question: if the accord is voluntary, why is the Left acting in such a hysterical manner?
4. The accord doesn’t hold China and India to a high standard. Via the Journal‘s editorial:
China and India offered benchmarks pegged to GDP growth, which means they can continue their current energy plans. China won’t even begin reducing emissions until 2030 and in the next five years it will use more coal.
China also can’t be trusted to reduce their carbon emissions since they have a history of misrepresenting their total emission levels.
“We deem the momentum generated in Paris in December 2015 irreversible and we firmly believe that the Paris Agreement cannot be renegotiated, since it is a vital instrument for our planet, societies and economies,” the leaders of the three countries said in a joint statement.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump had announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris agreement and immediately begin negotiations to re-enter on terms that are “fair to the United States.”

What they want is for the USA to be their ATM. And since we have no money, they should just go to the horse’s mouth and use China as their ATM, since we have to borrow from them to act as the ATM anyway. Cut out the middle man.
President Trump will announce Thursday afternoon that he is withdrawing the United States from the landmark Paris climate agreement, the White House has told allies, a move that honors a campaign promise but risks rupturing global alliances and disappointing both environmentalists and corporate titans.
“The Paris Accord is a BAD deal for Americans, and the President’s action today is keeping his campaign promise to put American workers first,” read a White House memo to supporters explaining the president’s decision. “The Accord was negotiated poorly by the Obama Administration and signed out of desperation.”
