Travelers detained at Sea-Tac under Trump executive order - MyNorthwest.comTuesday, January 31, 2017
Washington Governor Jay Inslee. “What type of cruel attitude based on demagoguery and fear does that to people? To anybody?”
Inslee called Trump’s executive order unconstitutional, illegal, and “religious discrimination in its barest and obvious form.”
“The manifest and unjustifiable chaos and cruelty caused by President Trump’s executive order is now on full display here at Sea-Tac Airport,” Inslee said Saturday.

On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order banning entry into the United States by residents of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. It includes refugees. It also orders that Christians and other religious minorities will be given priority over Muslims when vetting refugees.
Under the order, refugees are prevented from entering the country for 120 days while federal officials come up with vetting procedures to ensure they pose no threat. Syrian refugees are blocked indefinitely. Trump calls the measure part of extreme vetting to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the country.
In a press release, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson called the President’s executive order on immigration “un-American and unconstitutional.” He said he and 15 other Attorney Generals (from California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and the District of Columbia) will work together to ensure the federal government obeys the Constitution.
“My team and I are working this weekend to explore our options to oppose this illegal action,” Ferguson said. “The rule of law applies to everyone — including President Trump — and I will use the authority of my office to hold him accountable to it.”
“Religious liberty has been, and always will be, a bedrock principle of our country, and no president can change that truth,” Ferguson added. “Yesterday, multiple federal courts ordered a stay of the Administration’s dangerous Executive Order. We applaud those decisions and will use all of the tools of our offices to fight this unconstitutional order and preserve our nation’s national security and core values. We are confident that the Executive Order will ultimately be struck down by the courts. In the meantime, we are committed to working to ensure that as few people as possible suffer from the chaotic situation that it has created.”
Shortly after Trump signed the order, Canada’s government went the other way saying it will still accept refugees and not discriminate based on religion.

Saint John politician Elsie Wayne was polarizing but always ... - CBC - CBC.caFriday, November 4, 2016
The silver-haired dynamo might not have invented right-wing populism, but she certainly helped refine the concept during her years in municipal and federal office.
While others veer into demagoguery or quackery in their pursuit of broader political appeal, Elsie remained doggedly true to her roots as a Saint John stalwart who knew her base as well as she knew herself.
Among Saint Johners, Elsie was loved and, it has to be said, occasionally loathed.
As a city councillor, she was a loud, sometimes abrasive presence who would not be silenced. Woe betide anyone who tried.
Wayne went from city councillor to mayor to MP for Saint John, never losing an election.
Her longtime nemesis, Albert Vincent, once had a drink poured over his head during a council meeting by an exasperated Elsie.
Champion of the little guy
She rose to prominence as the vocal and tireless champion of the water-logged residents of flood-prone Glen Falls in East Saint John.
Where some might have dismissed their soggy pleas for help as the consequence of poor real estate judgment, Elsie waded into the fight to secure a holding pond to reduce the severity of the seasonal floods.
If, like King Canute, she couldn't roll back the tide, she at least managed to abate its effects.
Sept. 4: Donald Trump, JetBlue, and Labor Day - New York Daily NewsThursday, September 15, 2016
Trump's about bucks, not serviceMohegan Lake, N.Y.: Let’s be clear about Donald Trump: He’s not a politician; he’s not a demagogue; he’s an opportunist, chameleon-like to suit the circumstances. If Trump thought it would give him an advantage, he would bite the head off a Muslim on stage.
And his followers are not stupid, but I believe they are gullible. They’re being conned into thinking that a self-professed “billionaire” who has no record of public service could actually be effective as president and would have their best interests at heart.
He’s not in this to become President; he’s in this to make money, and to make his brand, and himself richer. I simply cannot believe, if he is as rich as he claims to be, that he would actually want a job that only pays $400,000 a year.
If I may paraphrase H.L. Mencken, “No one ever went broke underestimating the gullibility of the American public.” Michael W. Domis

Aubrey de Grey thinks the first humans who will live to 1,000 already walk among us. But is postponing death a good thing?
Tech folks are a little antsy about the whole death thing. They're putting money behind DNA 'hacking,' organ printing and tiny robots that might kill what ails you
Robots and asteroids are likely threats, but we'll probably be wiped out by good, old-fashioned disease

Cornwall and Area Death Notices - Cornwall Seaway NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Faith Marie Mill, in December 1954. Returning to Canada from Europe in 1954 he served in the Overseas Ferry Unit, flying small single-engined fighters across the Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario.
