With Doug Ford throwing his hat in the ring, as the Ontario Tory leadership is in complete meltdown mode, there is an opportunity to clean house, and finally take back the province from Wynne and the Grits.
Go, Dougie! Win one for Rob (R.I.P.)! 🙂
Arise again, Ford Nation, and this time not just for Toronto, but the province! 🙂
China experts and former intelligence officials are raising concerns about user data privacy following the acquisition of Grindr, the world’s largest gay dating application, by a Chinese technology firm. The Chinese government, they say, could be in a position to demand sensitive and embarrassing details on the lives of millions of non-Chinese citizens.This week, the Kunlun Group completed a full buyout of Grindr, a gay, bi, trans, and queer dating app that claims 3.3 million daily users. The Chinese firm bought 60 percent of the company in Jan. 2016 for $93 million and has now acquired the remaining stake for $152 million, according to stock filings. Grindr announced that Kunlun executives will take over leadership of the company.That announcement set off alarms among officials and experts that track Chinese intelligence and foreign influence operations in the United States. The Chinese government is sweeping up massive amounts of data on not only its own citizens, but also Americans and others, as part of a unique and well-planned effort to build files on foreigners for intelligence purposes.
Funny how these accusations only arise now that he’s running for high office in his state.
But, even if true, oh well. The Left tolerated JFK, Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, MLK, and many others – while raking Republican Congressmen / Governors / etc. over the coals for similar crimes.
It’s only fair that Republican voters become as blasé about such scandals as Democrat voters are.
Why should one side be hampered by principles that the other side refuses to live by or even acknowledge?
If the progs want to blame anyone for this turn of events, they only have themselves to blame, ultimately.
After all, they’re the ones who’ve always pushed identity politics over principle, etc.
Thus, they have no grounds to complain when their opponents start copying from their playbook, playing by their rules – and beating them.
Of course, they will whine and bitch, but it’s their own fault, ultimately.
They started it.
We’ll finish it.
