Is Bernier The Conservative Benedict Arnold?

leave a comment »


Is Maxine Bernier sabotaging The Conservative party of Canada or has he just got a case of really bad political judgement?

Just prior to the Conservative 2018 convention in Halifax Bernier launched a tirade of tweets and speeches to do away with supply management. By calling Ontario dairy farmers ‘Fake Conservatives ‘ and not telling the whole story about Canadian milk prices he portrayed  the dairy farmers out to be unscrupulous millionaires. Many of these farmers have been conservatives for decades and here is Bernier kicking them in the face right when the conservatives are having their big convention with all eyes on them. Is this just poor political judgement or is Bernier purposely sabotaging Andrew Scheer the leader of the conservative party?

Supply management may or may not be good for Canada, but it most certainly is not an issue the conservatives what to own going into an election. Since few people in Canada understand the issue, the Liberals with the media friends can easily define it to their own benefit leaving the conservatives on the defensive , especially in vote rich Ontario. I can’t believe that Bernier didn’t know this.

The wiser position for the conservative party to take, rather than trying to explain supply management , is to make Trudeau defend his policies which most Canadians already understand and the media is stuck with since they have been promoting them. It will be a lot easier for Scheer to let Trudeau defend the un-defendable Carbon tax, Illegal immigration, lack of building pipelines, stifling free speech to mention a few. Since an election is short, voters have to quickly understand the issues. Supply management isn’t an issue most voters are going to understand easily. Again, I can’t believe that Bernier didn’t know.

This isn’t the first time that Bernier embarrassed the conservative party and had to leave. As Minister of Foreign Affairs in 2008 under the Harper government Bernier lost classified foreign affairs documents at his girlfriend’s home putting PM Harper’s judgement into serious question. To make matters worse, Bernier girlfriend, Julie Couillard, had links to the criminal underworld. He didn’t even run any security check on her. This is mind boggling how a foreign affairs minister could have let this fiasco take place. I was skeptical it was just bad judgement than just as I am skeptical of the timing of Bernier’s departure from the conservative party now.

Today Bernier continues to embarrass and accuse the federal Conservatives of abandoning its core conservative principles and to start his own party that could split the conservative vote. Just the idea that Bernier, who calls himself a conservative, would knowingly allow the Trudeau liberals an opportunity to win the 2019 election is bizarre to say the least. Again is this just a case of bad judgement?

Andrew Scheer has just come off a big win in Quebec. He has also got Trudeau in a position where he will have to go on the defensive and explain all the liberal policies on illegal immigration , carbon tax to a public that doesn’t want either. A winning strategy.

So! Does Bernier want Andrew Scheer to win or Justin Trudeau to win? His actions against the conservative party is making him look like the Benedict Arnold of the conservative party.

Seriously! Notley’s Alberta’s Pipeline Champion

leave a comment »


The push to get a seaport for Alberta oil has all but disappeared. Less than a few years ago Alberta and Canada was  optimistically debating the need to ship Alberta oil to the east or west so we could sell our oil internationally and get top dollar instead of discounting our product traveling to the US. Today there are only a handful of diehards still pushing for a Gateway or the Energy East Pipeline. Politician are now shifting our attention to yet another pipeline project, the twinning of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline that presently supply’s BC ,Washington and the new upgrade at Westridge Marine Terminal to overseas. The Project will increase the system’s capacity from 300,000 barrels a day to 890,000  and allow us to enter new international markets that could result in Canada earning approximately $3.7 billion more per year and breaking the stronghold the US has on our oil.

Yes! That’s Notley on the side protesting Alberta oil and pipelines

Just like the Gateway and Energy East, the Trans Mountain  pipeline debacle has become laughable  . We now have two socialist NDP parties, Alberta’s Premier Rachel Notley’s and BC’s Premier John Horgan’s who both don’t want a Pipeline, going to WAR on new, already federally approved, Trans Mountain pipeline should proceed from Alberta through BC to Burnaby. Notley, an anti pipeline protester, has now become Alberta’s champion . It’s absurd!

It’s become obvious there are very powerful forces that don’t want Alberta heavy oil to get to a sea port via pipeline.  Ironically shipping oil by train and truck doesn’t seem to grab the harsh headlines as does oil pipelines. Also it’s very strange that over the past few years a new addition to the Westridge Marine terminal on the west coast has been approved and is under construction to handle more oil tankers (filled by pipe or train) with little protest except for the ‘Trudeau Brigade’. This a protest group who hangs on PM Trudeau’s encouraging words “that the people have the final say” not the federal government .

So Whats with the hyperbole of a trade war between Alberta and BC?

New BC Westridge Marine Terminal to Overseas.

Power for one. The federation of Canada is being challenged on its authority . if the federal government doesn’t have the power to make national decisions in the public interest we end up with a country that is destabilized. The only group that would benefit from this would be socialist who can showcase how ineffective our system is. The trade war isn’t about a pipeline, it’s about power and control. Alberta oil is going to flow. Bills have to be paid.

The fact is premier Notley, Horgan,PM Trudeau and federal NDP leader Jagmeet Sing are all on board with the trade war chaos. This is why I think ‪an Alberta trade war with BC is all smoke and mirrors! I think Alberta will be sucked down the well. Real champions like UPC Leader Kenny and all conservatives  have to come up with a better way than a trade war to enforce jurisdictions,  save Alberta’s oil industry and save the Canadian free enterprises way. Cutting off oil ,wine etc to BC might get Alberta politicians votes in the short-term but won’t solve anything. Alberta needs a long-term plan. A plan that Notley can’t steal from UCP Jason Kenney come election time. In the meantime using train to transport oil is the option.

Navigating the Crash

Here is a good video outlining why we are having some of the troubling problems and global turmoil in the world today. Many countries today have already lost their sovereignty by giving up their ability to print money. Instead of printing their own money and saving the interest, they borrow money from the Bank of International Settlements based in Switzerland and pay back the loan at a compound interest rate. This scheme has sucked the money out of countries and put into the hands of the banking cartel leaving each country like Canada and the US paying billions to interest, pushing many countries into bankruptcy and reducing the lifestyle of its citizens . Little wonder why people around the world are getting angry.

As we move through the climate cycles we are repeating history moving into troubling times.

The Liberal War on Nationalism

leave a comment »


“Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it”  – Milton Friedman
I haven’t bothered to blog over the past few months simply because not much new has happened. Its been the same old Trump bashing, BLM, Islam brainwashing ,fake news day after day. You can turn off the news and come back 2 weeks later and the Main Stream Media is still pushing the same stories. But after listening to PM Trudeau omit (not forget) Alberta in is July 1 speech and the outrages 10 million dollar Kahdar payout I thought I would pen a few words outlining the agenda.

The battle between the globalist (liberals/Multi nationals)  and the nationalist (conservatives) on ‘Global Redesign’ has become obvious and down right nasty especially in the US. Trudeau and Obama have repeatedly down played nationalism with Trudeau calling Canada post national and Obama just this July 4th 2017 preaching that US citizens should be less patriotic. Both arguing that individual countries are no longer dominant as per the World Economic Form report.

Quote from the World Economic Forum:

The World Economic Forum’s report on the future of global governance, “Global Redesign,” posits that a globalized world is best-managed by a coalition of multi national corporations, nation-states (including through the UN system) and select civil society organizations. The report argues that states no longer are “the overwhelmingly dominant actors on the world stage and that “the time has come for a new stakeholder paradigm of inter national governance”.

If you’re a liberal you are probably cheering for the new stakeholder paradigm of inter-national governance. But if you’re a nationalist like me, that believe in global free trade, this global Redesign is a disaster. I’m proud to be a Canadian and want to be governed by Canadians, not some world corporate organization that was formed to push for a new form of global governance.

Until now the globalist ‘Redesign’ Liberals have been winning the battle. But the nationalist have begun a comeback  with the election of Trump and the evolving of the fiscally conservative Generation Z. Yes, Generation Z could be the lifeline the nationalist like myself have been looking for.

Generation Z is pegged to be born between 1995 to 2010. The group is estimated to be over 1.9 billion worldwide, about 27% of the population. In Canada its estimated around 7.3 million or 22% of the Canadian population. It’s also estimated that 84% identified as a fiscal conservative. That’s huge. In the next 11 years they will all be of voting age.

Generation Z, unlike their millennial parents, will be a competitive, hard-working, mobile generation that will act more like their grandparents and great grandparents due to the recessions and tough job situation they have both been brought up in. Like their great grand parents they will put a high priority on saving money. This sounds like conservative values to me.

Regardless of what Trudeau or Obama think, I can’t imagine Canada being run by a global governance similar in fashion to the European Union where big decisions are made out of a central government in Brussels, Belgium with very little public input. The EU is a financial nightmare. We can make our own decisions and negotiate our own global trade deals like Alberta oil without the likes of a fascist World Economic Forum engineering our future. This liberal/corporate movement is trying to  destroy nationalism, suppress opposition and control industry and commerce. 

I think the tide is turning. With more information getting out to the public and Generation Z coming up to voting age , ‘Global Redesign’ is going to have some heavy  opposition. Conservatism will win the day.

US Agents Murdered – Sends A MESSAGE

leave a comment »


It’s become obvious that there are some very bad people (elites) manipulating the masses via fake news/media, fake human global warming, rigged elections etc. Now we are witnessing special agents in the US being murdered and tortured to protect these heinous people.

Just this week two investigators went missing after traveling to Arkansas, headed to the Clinton Presidential library with a warrant to search the residence attached to it, were found in a shallow grave in a wooded area more than 100 miles from where their truck was found. The two men, deputized agents of the federal government on a mission for congressman Trey Gowdy, were interrogated, tortured, covered with garbage bags and buried alive, according to the local medical examiner.

With these two new murders plus the previous deaths of  Justice Antonin Scalia, John Ashe (former United Nations diplomat)  and Seth Rich’s (Democratic National Committee employee), the political bodies are starting to pile up fairly quickly.  Its getting harder to believe its the Russians, natural causes or robbery thats to blame. Call it what you like, a conspiracy theory, bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to testify against Hillary Clinton they end up dead.

For example, Seth’s Riches parents thought his death could have been just a botched holdup. But the fact that he was found shot twice in the back immobilizing him, with his gold chain around his neck, watch,wallet with cash  and credit cards still on his body, would suggest otherwise. Then on April 8, 2017, Wikileaks founder confirms Seth Rich as source of DNC email Leak with proof. If Rich was the leak as Wikileaks suggest, the DNC party and the Clinton’s would have been furious.

What about the UN crook Ashe who died on June 2016?  When he was found dead, the U.N. claimed that he had died from a heart attack. Local police officers in Dobbs Ferry, New York, later disputed that claim, saying instead that he died from a workout accident that crushed his throat. Again, a Chinese businessman, Ng Lap Seng, who likes to pay bribes has a connection to both the Clinton’s and Ashe. Ashe died just when he was facing criminal charges and about to testify in a few days in a bribery case.

With the two agents being murdered just when they were to hand the Clinton’s a search warrant, hints that all these deaths are beginning to look much more than just a coincidence or bad luck.

This latest MURDERS begs the question? Who blew these agent’s cover to the point they were obviously overtaken with superior force and systematically killed.  Trey Gowdy believes its a mole in his committee.

The way these 2 agents were murdered in such a brutal fashion looks like a warning. Imagine, these agents were tortured, interrogated, covered with garbage bags and buried alive in a shallow grave. Why would anybody do this? Probably to send a message. A very strong message on what will happen to anyone who doesn’t toe the line.

I hope the murderer is found and put to death.  I also hope Trey Gowdy keeps up his investigation on corruption and continues the Clinton investigation. He must be shocked at these deaths and afraid for his family and himself.  The Trump government needs to follow this to the end.
