President Donald Trump repeated a false claim that Democrats are behind his administration's "zero-tolerance" policy that separates families at the US-Mexico border.
US immigration law does not require families to be split up at the border
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy in May.
New immigration legislation introduced by House Republicans Friday does nothing to change the policy.
Almost 2,000 children have reportedly been separated from their families at the border over six weeks under the policy.
President Donald Trump repeated a false claim in a tweet Saturday that blames Democrats for the policy of separating immigrant parents from their children upon crossing the southern border between the US and Mexico.

"North American governments have shown the 'fortitude' necessary to kill indigenous people often enough that this is no idle threat," warns Bill McKibben.

As Canada's controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project faces ongoing opposition, the former governor of the Bank of Canada said that protesters may die but that the government should push the project through anyway.
 
Speaking at an event Wednesday, David Dodge said, "We're going to have some very unpleasant circumstances," the Edmonton Journal reported. "There are some people that are going to die in protesting construction of this pipeline. We have to understand that."
 
"Nevertheless, we have to be willing to enforce the law once it's there," Dodge said. "It's going to take some fortitude to stand up."

Diabolical Plan to Make Rich Richer E-mail

Stop standing around like deer in the headlights...Stop this process from happening.
  1. Start World Trade War
  2. Invite foreign companies to move to US to avoid Tariffs
  3. Create poor working class using immigrant children from Walmart detainees
  4. Add the new factories to the detained centres so that detainees can live in Walmart barracks and work in factories next door.
  5. Nationalize these new industries and get buddies to run them thus creating a rich American oligarchy just like Russia

Bonus...Donald Chump gets his wall created by building Walmarts along the border using cheap child labour.  That's how he can get Mexico to pay for his wall

GLOBAL PETITION CALLING FOR THE BANNING OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOOD AND CROPS E-mail
Posted by Joan Russow   
Friday, 15 June 2018 10:40

Finally counrtries are moving to ban genetically engineered food and crops, and refusing to enter into trade agreements with countries that produce GE food and crops. I have been circulating this petition for years

by Joan Russow Global Compliance Research Projecr, Ecological Rights Association *

Please circulate on e-mail

To sign a petition on facebook please go to Change.org 

 
Genetically engineered food and crops have contaminated the Global food system and undermined food security and must be banned.
 
The institutional Collusion, in relation to genetically engineered food and crops, among corporations, governments, universities and regulatory agencies has been endemic; this collusion has sadly spread to certain scientific publications.  For the sake of food security for present and future generations: (i) this collusion must end; (ii) the precautionary principle must be invoked, (iv) genetically engineered food and crops, banned; (v) the charters of Monsanto et al, revoked; and (vi) charges of gross/criminal negligence against these corporations, levied.
We are living in a wake of corporate/government/university/ negligence from previous harmful substances that were once deemed safe for human health and the environment. Given the unattended consequences of genetically engineered foods and crops, and the global commitment to the precautionary principle, it becomes imperative to institute a complete ban on genetically engineered foods and crops. There is sufficient emerging scientific evidence to justify the banning to prohibit all further production and export of genetically engineered foods and crops.

TOKYO/WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - Japan’s farm ministry said on Friday it has suspended its tender and sale of wheat from Canada after grain containing a genetically modified trait was discovered last summer in Canada’s Alberta province.
 
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said on Thursday the wheat containing a genetically modified trait, developed by Monsanto Co (BAYGn.DE) to tolerate the Roundup weed-killer, was discovered in Alberta.
 
“We are suspending the tender and sale of Canadian wheat until we confirm that the Canadian wheat that Japan buys contains no GMO,” an official at the Japanese farm ministry said.

Italy will not ratify the European Union's free trade agreement with Canada, its new agriculture minister said on Thursday, ratcheting up an international trade spat and potentially scuppering the EU's biggest accord in years.
 
The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is the first major trade deal the European Union has signed since it began implementing its South Korea agreement in 2011.
 
All 28 EU member states must approve the agreement for it to take full effect.

Pope Francis on Saturday issued a dire warning to top oil executives, saying that climate change could “destroy civilization.”
 
At a two-day conference at the Vatican, the pope called climate change a challenge of “epochal proportions,” according to Reuters.
 
He also said that the world must move toward using clean energy and a reduction in the use of fossil fuels.
 
“Civilization requires energy but energy use must not destroy civilization,” Francis said.

Oilsands crude headed for price shock in 2020 due to new fuel standards E-mail

The coming marine shipping rules could double or even triple the discount on heavy oil, pushing it much wider than the US$30 a barrel discount from earlier this year

CALGARY — Canada’s oilsands industry, hard hit by a price storm this year, could be sailing straight into a pricing typhoon stirred up by new fuel standards for the international shipping industry.
 
The tighter pollution rules by the International Maritime Organization, dubbed IMO 2020, are set to take effect Jan. 1, 2020, resulting in the sulphur content limit of “bunker” fuel on ships dropping from 3.5 per cent to just 0.5 per cent.
 
The switch is expected to wallop prices for heavy oil containing high levels of sulphur — exactly the kind of the raw bitumen that makes up about half of Canada’s 4.4 million barrels per day of crude oil production.
 
“It’s bad news for any producers of heavy, sour crude oil,” said Martin Tallett, president of Massachusetts-based oil market research firm EnSys Energy.
 
“The shock is going to go through the system and affect all products, all regions.”

U.S. oil refineries that are unable to sell a dirty fuel waste product at home are exporting vast quantities of it to India instead.
 
Petroleum coke, the bottom-of-the-barrel leftover from refining Canadian oilsands crude and other heavy oils, is cheaper and burns hotter than coal. But it also contains more planet-warming carbon and far more heart- and lung-damaging sulfur — a key reason few American companies use it.
