Money from wealthy right-wing ideologues helps fuel group challenging Alberta's protections for GSA members 21.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga The so-called Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms achieved its first goal yesterday, generating plenty of publicity for itself and its social conservative supporters at the first day of its court bid to overturn the Alberta NDP government's legislative effort to protect students who join gay-straight alliances. By the sound of media reports from the southeastern Alberta city of Medicine Hat, a circus-like atmosphere prevailed outside the courtroom as a crowd of button-wearing anti-GSA activists showed up to support the group's constitutional challenge, opposed by a few counter-protesters. This produced lots of coverage, including reports in national publications , doubtless further raising the profile of the Calgary-based JCCF, which is already beloved by Alberta's conservative mainstream media, pretty well the only kind we have around here. The Calgary-based organization is seeking an injunction to stop enforcement of the Alberta law protecting members of school gay-straight ...

A call for the NDP to withdraw from the Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group 20.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Yves Engler The undersigned are appalled by the recent deaths in Gaza. At least 110 Palestinians have been killed and thousands injured by sniper fire and noxious gas used by the Israeli military. The recent violence takes place alongside ongoing land theft, destruction of olive groves, construction of Jewish-only roads, imprisonment without due process, and a blockade of Gaza. During its 70-year history, Israel has been as unjust towards Palestinians as the white-ruled apartheid state was to Black South Africans. We are concerned that members of Parliament would seek to strengthen relations with a country systematically violating Palestinian rights. In particular, we are dismayed that NDP justice critic Murray Rankin and NDP defence critic Randall Garrison serve as executive members of the Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group. NDP MPs Peter Julian and Gord Johns are also members of that organization. The Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group promotes "greater friendship" between Canadian MPs and ...

Was Albert Einstein a Racist? 19.6.2018 American Prospect
Public Domain Albert Einstein in his office at the University of Berlin Albert Einstein is back in the news, but not because someone has disproved or confirmed one of his theories. The publication of Einstein’s travel diaries last week reveal that he wrote some racist things about the Chinese back in the early 1920s. The media have jumped on Einstein’s observations to undermine his reputation as a progressive, suggesting that the world-renowned physicist was a hypocrite. “Einstein's travel diaries reveal physicist's racism,” BBC News headlined its story. USA Today’s version was: “Einstein was a racist? His 1920s travel diaries contain shocking slurs against Chinese people.” Wrote Fox News: “Einstein's diaries contain shocking details of his racism.” Princeton University Press (in coordination with the Einstein Papers Project at the California Institute of Technology) just published The Travel Diaries of Albert Einstein: The Far East, Palestine, and Spain, 1922–1923, translated into English for the first ...

Democrats have one-party rule in Trenton. Why can't they agree on taxes? 13.6.2018 Philly.com News
Five months into his term, Gov.

At the same time, political observers said, Murphy, who had never before held elected office, has had a rocky start in dealing with the Legislature.
