COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA - August 15, 2018 (LSN)   As we become more dependent on interconnected utilities and technology (including energy grids, communications, data systems, etc.) we also become more vulnerable to catastrophe from damages to those systems.

In 2010, Lake County experienced the 2010 fiber-optic failure and couldn’t make phone calls, buy gasoline or make bank transactions.

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO -  August 12, 2018  (LSN)  In a disgusting and shameful move, the Victoria City Council has removed a statue of Sir John A. Macdonald, the latest in a growing example of radical left attempts to destroy Canadian history.

The radical left has a clear agenda: Wipe out Canadian national pride, and replace it with a globalist ideology that rejects the idea of a unified Canadian nation.

It has seemed to Manny Montenegrino, President & CEO Think Sharp Inc, that Trudeau and Gerald Butts are more interested in satisfying anti-Trump Canadians for political reasons, than they are in reaching an agreement with Trump and now he has seen the smoking gun.
