Unfortunately, there is no video of this one that I have found.

The United States is making a mistake by moving in the opposite direction of Canada on cultural diversity, immigration and social harmony, former U.S. president Bill Clinton told a receptive audience in Montreal on Wednesday night.

“Canada has done such a good job of both managing its contemporary diversity and it has a very interesting immigration system,” he said at the Bell Centre, where he and his wife, former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, made their second stop on a paid speaking tour of North America.

The 13-stop tour, An Evening with the Clintons, began in Toronto on Tuesday.

“And yet it’s still Canada,” Clinton added. “And I just think that you can model the idea that you can become more diverse and still keep your culture and your values. It’s really very good for a modern economy.”

Canada has the capacity to embrace and influence the world in a positive way, he said.

This was a refreshing, honest, humorous evening with the Clintons. They had serious answers on the Bin Laden raid, North Korea, despots in general, Putin in particular, and climate change – among other topics. Lighter notes touched on their courtship and time at Yale.

I’m thrilled to announce I’ve partnered up with Omaze to offer you the chance to join me in NYC for a Broadway play and a glass of chardonnay. It’s bound to be a great evening, and I’d like you to be there.

All contributions to this campaign support Onward Together’s mission to advance progressive values and create a more inclusive America for generations to come. The groups that Onward Together partners with helped to turn the tide in the midterm elections — and have already jumped back into the critical work of preserving our democracy. So far, we’ve been able to provide more than $2.5 million in financial resources to these groups, along with the support of this diverse, big-hearted team.

The important thing is that we’d get the chance to spend some time together, seeing a show and catching up on what we’ve been up to over the last few years. Hearing from you is as important to me as it ever was. And of course, we’ll cover travel and accommodations if you win — all you have to do is pick the show.

For just $10, you can make a difference in the future of our country and get a chance to share in one of my favorite pastimes. Enter right now for a chance to meet me in New York:


I hope to see you soon,

Hillary

Hillary took to social media to expose the study that the Trump regime tried to hide by releasing it on the slowest news day of the year. This is her Facebook post. You can RT her Tweets here >>>>

 

Thought I would tack this on here. Trump promised the residents of Tangier Island that he would protect them from the rising tides. But, never mind. He doesn’t believe the study from his own administration, soooo … I’m guessing it’s all a big “screw you” to Tangier Islanders. I think of them every time the topic arises.

On Tangier, a Disappearing Island

By Christian Storm

This article originally appeared in Business Insider.

If you stand at the end of the dock in Crisfield, Maryland, and gaze out over the water, you might not catch the tiny shape of a water tower barely visible on the horizon. And when you look at a map you can just as easily miss the tiny island that the tower sits on, 12 miles from either coast in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Largely unknown, Tangier Island, Virginia, is one of the most isolated and extraordinary places in the continental U.S.

It’s also in danger of disappearing. In 50 to 100 years, the water tower in the center of town may be all that’s left of the place.

Many of us have heard about far-off islands, like the Maldives or Kiribati, which are slowly sinking into the ocean because of erosion and rising sea levels. Far fewer know of Tangier, an island right here in the U.S. that’s currently only 4 feet or so above sea level at its highest point and that may soon suffer the same fate.

Hillary Clinton

Europe must get a handle on immigration to combat a growing threat from rightwing populists, Hillary Clinton has said, calling on the continent’s leaders to send out a stronger signal showing they are “not going to be able to continue to provide refuge and support”.

In an interview with the Guardian, the former Democratic presidential candidate praised the generosity shown by the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, but suggested immigration was inflaming voters and contributed to the election of Donald Trump and Britain’s vote to leave the EU.

“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Clinton said, speaking as part of a series of interviews with senior centrist political figures about the rise of populists, particularly on the right, in Europe and the Americas.

Centrist heavyweights on the global rise of rightwing populism, and what can be done to stop it

Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair, Matteo Renzi: three of rightwing populism’s greatest scalps.

Clinton admits she was left dumbfounded by her 2016 election defeat at the hands of Donald Trump. Renzi’s centre-left party was defeated this year after a surge in the anti-establishment vote in Italy, a country he calls “the incubator” of populism.

Blair may not have lost at the ballot box, but his legacy, particularly on Europe, was upended in the Brexit referendum.

All three are shunned by sections of their own party that accuse them of being responsible for the failure of the centre-left to offer a sufficiently radical alternative.

But all three are still thinking deeply about rightwing populism – its causes and the threat it poses – the mistakes of the centre left, including their own, and how modern politics appears to be mobilising resentment towards a perceived elite.
