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‚Äôs report on the future of global governance, ‚ÄúGlobal Redesign,‚ÄĚ 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 ‚Äúthe overwhelmingly dominant actors on the world stage and that ‚Äúthe 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.

Conservative leadership 2017 – The Real Opposition

with one comment


Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper gives a pair of thumbs up gestures as he gives his concession speech after Canada's federal election in CalgaryWow! 14 leadership candidates looking to be the leader of the Conservative party of Canada and the next prime minister. Makes it hard to absorb everyone’s idea’s. Fortunately, like the Republican Party leadership race with 16 candidates, the field will shrink. One thing I noticed in the Halifax debate was how the liberal media party focused on how the other candidates were beating up on Kevin O’Leary. Not true. Out-side of a few cheap shots from Chong and Leitch the debate was pretty tame. Unfortunately the Halifax debate centred around 5 questions with each candidate only getting one minute to answer each question, so the answers were short with few details. The only confusing candidate is Micheal Chong with his global warming and carbon taxing policies. I think he would be better off in the Liberal camp than the conservative.

Most candidates are in tune with¬†the general conservative platform, but the one to win will not only have to have a great platform but will also need great social media skills mixed with a good dose of boldness to beat the Liberal Media Party. There are only a few candidates that fit the bill. The rest are¬†just window dressing to make the race interesting. I’ll bet Trudeau would lose in a heartbeat if it weren’t for the media support.

One candidate with the media savvy and fearlessness to kick media butt is Kevin O’Leary. The CBC has already started censoring his comments by Cutting him off when he Slammed Trudeau in the debate. Just a small taste of what’s to come during the election. They must be worried. O’Leary’s policies are a little progressive but I doubt he’s a globalist like Trudeau’s gang. I think he’s doing his best to come across as progressive for eastern Canada’s benefit. His lack of speaking french, no big deal.

Maxime Bernier is a great candidate ¬†that knows his way around parliament hill. He served in Harper’s cabinet since January 2006. Lots of experience. He seems to be pro small business which s a good thing. He also voiced his doubts about anthropogenic climate change. Doesn’t like to interfere with Provinces. Definitely a fiscal conservative. Unfortunately I think its questionable he will make much headway into Quebec. The conservative message doesn’t resonate in Quebec. It’s going to be Liberal or NDP territory for a few more elections.¬†Bernier needs to win Ontario and some seats in Atlantic Canada if he has any hope to form a government. Nicknamed ‘Mad Max’ and his past to haunt him (Party guy and leaving sensitive documents at his girlfriends home in 2008,), Bernier could also have positioned himself ¬†to right-wing for Ontario, Atlantic Canada and Quebec voters.

Lisa Raitt has good ties to Atlantic Canada and Ontario. Like Bernier she has a good handle on how government works. Against a carbon tax, supports the resource sector, all good conservative traits. The one thing that ticked me off with Raitt was her targeting O’Leary and Leitch for different opinions after she¬†said “never ever speak ill of any conservative ” in 2016 while speaking at the Manning centre. I thought she was more open to discussing all ideas.

For years the Liberal MSM Party has been¬†deciding who in our country has a voice, and who does not. ¬†With the down hill direction Canada is headed , Raitt, Bernier and O’Leary with sound policies all have a chance to beat the liberals in 2019. O’Leary might have the edge due to his media experience.

On May 27, 2017, I hope the Conservative party of Canada is serious about winning and picks a candidate that can do battle with the real opposition, the Liberal media.

Canada – Reality Check

leave a comment »


roman-empire

Roman Empire

The path that Canadians are on can be described by a quote by Alexander Tyler,¬†(15 October 1747 ‚Äď 5 January 1813) who was a Scottish advocate, judge, professor and writer. His quote coins the major problem with being able to sustain a democracy. I doubt any Canadian, if they looked around at todays going on, wouldn’t be able to relate to his quote. The following is what he had this to say about the falling of the Athenian Republic some 2000 years ago.

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.¬†A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.” “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”

REALITY CHECK 

In my opinion Canada is in complacency phase not far behind Europe that is obviously in the dependence on government state stage. If we want to stop the destructive direction we are headed for and keep any form of democracy we are going have to be very careful on who we vote into government.

Today the Trudeau Liberals have taken the reins of power. Trudeau promised many goodies to voters.¬†Tax breaks for middle-class Canadians was the centre of Trudeau‚Äôs promises. Who wouldn’t want a tax break? He also promised a new, tax-free child benefit, allowing Canadians to dip into their RRSPs more, to buy a home, and to reduce EI premiums. Again more goodies for the voters.¬†legalize marijuana right away, was another incentive for all the pot heads to come out to vote. Trudeau also promised to break with Ottawa‚Äôs decades-long obsession with balanced budgets and spend more on infrastructure. With all these promises Trudeau got the majority of the house seats because, voters always vote of the candidate who promise the most benefits.

But with all the promises comes the next stage of loose fiscal policy as per ‘Tylers’ quote.¬†Trudeau originally¬†said the deficit would be $9.9 billion in 2016-17, $9.5 billion in 2017-18, $5.7 billion in 2018-2019 and a surplus of $1 billion in 2019-2020. Its going to far from it. Now its evolved to¬†a¬†projected 2016-17 deficit of $29.4 billion, followed by $29 billion in 2017-18, $22.8 billion in 2018-19, $17.7 billion in 2019-20 and $14.3 billion in 2020-21. A fiscal Liberal $90 billion fantasy in the first term.

‘Rome was a greater power than we ever were, but when free bread and circuses became more important to the people than hard work and patriotism, Rome was invaded and looted by the tougher Vandals’.

I imagine back in Rome when anyone tried to warn of the danger ahead they just got scoffed at. No one wanted to hear it. To much free stuff, and they forgot what glued them together, patriotism. Just like Canada today.

Trump Stuns Liberal Globalist

leave a comment »


David Rockefeller – All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.

Every time I think about what the liberal movement is trying to achieve I think about the¬†February 17, 1950, James Warburg’s appearance before the¬†U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations when he said,

“We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”

Warburg was referring the inevitability of an increasing number of international multilateral business having a greater reliance on international law and on an increasingly globalized economy. If the Liberals viewed these forces as inevitable then they would be accurate to say that we will have a world government whether we like it or not.

When Warburg said by “consent or by conquest” he was referring to the ongoing struggles with global communism which was hell-bent on dominating the world by brutal force. In other words, he was saying we can be unified under savage global communism, or we can be unified by inevitable historical forces of international law and global economic realities. The bottom line is, the world would be unified.

Originally this may have been the thinking for both the Conservatives and the liberal movements, but something must have happened since 1950 that is leading to the dismantling of our western culture and values. We are being forced to accept mass immigration with cultures that are not compatible with ours. Our economy is being abused. Our MEDIA is spewing more propaganda than facts. We are hostage to a global warming hoax to strip more tax dollars from us. Race baiting is running amuck. This is all beginning to seem more like a savage communist takeover than world trade cooperation and international prosperity by consent.

When the US primaries started and Trump (a political outsider) entered the race for Potus, the everyday people who had been left without a voice to speak for them, finally found someone they could rally behind. These millions of Americans ¬†knew all wasn’t well and their country was falling apart. Their voice wasn’t being heard by either the Democrats or Republicans. Both parties seemed to be marching in the same destructive¬†direction toward George Soros global dream by extreme social engineering.

I’m hoping Trumps win changes the globalist hideous dream of forced unity and puts America back on track for a world government by consent rather than by force and deceit as was with Obama’s administration and friends.¬†Obama and his buddy’s, like globalist George Soros, has left America in shambles. With 108.616 million people either unemployed, underemployed or not in the labor force (45.5% of eligible workers) , trillion in debt, moral decay throughout the American society, Trump has his work cut out.

As we have witnessed since Trumps win, the left is not giving up. They have been pulling every dirty trick they can think of to derail Trumps inauguration on January 20,2017. Amazingly, we are also witnessing Trump giving back as hard as he gets, stunning the MSM like CNN and critic’s. It looks like we finally have a leader that will stand up to these liberal globalist bullies. If he accomplishes nothing else in his term but crush todays globalist movement, it would be a victory and an example for the rest of the world.

Canadians have the same battle with the¬†Trudeau government. We are following the same destructive path that Obama took the Americans down. Bullying,lies and media propaganda. Unfortunately, as of yet, ¬†I don’t see any hero stepping forward to challenge the Trudeau liberal flakes to make Canada great again.

A Canadian Eye Opener

Washington Times :George Soros Funded Ferguson Protests

Ever wonder why the new liberal left is piling on the debt. ¬†Kathleen Wynne’s Ontario debt has skyrocketed from $200 billion in 2010 to over $300 billion, and now Trudeau’s liberals are on a spending binge, Alberta’s Notley can’t keep her hand out of the cookie jar and Obama is now called the $20 trillion man. We were told all this spending was for growth and the debt will be paid down as the economies improve. If this was just one or two countries accumulating massive debt I wouldn’t think much about it . But it’s not. Governments around the world are knowingly ¬†living beyond their means by introducing unsustainable¬†pensions, wages, health benefits. The total world sovereign debt has jumped to a massive $60 trillion. Why aren’t the advanced ¬†governments controlling their spending and drowning in debt? Are they all just incompetent or are they following a plan?

The few governments that tried to control their debt like Canada’s Steven Harper are few and far between. Most first world governments are left leaning and adhere to the George Soros doctrine of Global governance that is following a path to what he calls an open society. The path to his open society ¬†means¬†curtailing sovereignty of the wealthy nations like Canada and the US. By diminishing these wealthier countries, Soros and his liberal followers can drain the wealth and power from these sovereign countries to UN world bodies like the IMF and the world bank just to mention a few. Until the recent 2016 US election and the Trumps win, they were well on their way . The astonishing thing about their plan ,was very few citizens knew¬†what was happening to their country. Luckily there were¬†enough voters that felt something was very wrong and has given all of us freedom lovers a bit of a reprieve.

Breaking down existing societies of the wealthier nations is key to intervening to bring in new rules and regulations. Bankrupting the economy, agitating races to turn on each other, eco terrorism , muslin immigration are all part of destabilizing countries . When the chaos gets out of hand and people are demanding a fix, the new global governance is ushered in.

All this is now going on in Canada. The newer Trudeau liberal government has started down the same plan of destabilization as Obama. First on their agenda is the wild spending and social disorder like the fellow liberals have done in Ontario. Ontario already has a good head start bankrupting their province with a whopping debt of over $300 billion when Canada’s total net debt is only around $650 billion thanks to the previous Conservative government. The saving grace Canada might have is the Trump effect rubbing off on us. Otherwise Canada is going down a path of giving up our sovereignty.

The US election has definitely given many Canadians an eye opener on how left bias the main stream media is and how they can control the news narrative your receiving. The negative tone in the democratic primary against Bernie Saunders was never-ending like it was with Trump and in Canada against Steven Harper. The are on the side of global governance.

Hopefully the tables can be turned on George Soros global dream so we can continue enjoying are hard fought freedom and sovereignty. Unfortunately the fight is just getting underway. The chaos is just starting. The liberals aren’t going quietly.

Alberta – Pipline Fantasy

with one comment


img_1099

Mackenzie Valley Pipeline still not built

Remember the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline? This project was first proposed in the early 1970s when demand ¬†for natural gas was increasing and peaked to $15.38 ¬†MMBtu. It was finally approval in 2011 after prices tumbled to $4.57¬†MMBtu¬†low. Today in 2016 it’s still not built . 46 years and waiting. How about the twin gateway pipeline from Alberta to Kitimat BC proposed in 2006 to run bitumen to the west and wet gas eastward. Today Alberta premier Notley has completely abandoned the project. And let’s not forget about phase 4 of the Keystone pipeline from Alberta to Nebraska¬†that was under discussion since 2011 which was rejected by Obama in 2015. We can’t forget about the latest Trudeau debacle¬†with the Pacific NorthWest LNG ¬†pipeline approval with 190 conditions. And lastly, how about the new Kinder Morgan expansion pipeline from Alberta to Vancouver? Well, It’s stalled.

Yes,¬†strong opposition from civic governments, First Nations, environmentally concerned citizens, and others have put the kibosh on all of these projects. Billions of dollars in investment and thousands of jobs halted. All the optimism and cheerleading from our political leaders didn’t amount to a hill of beans. Our politicians are either living in a fantasy land or are simply not serious on helping Alberta get out oil to market.

What I find interesting about Alberta’s landlocked situation and declining revenue is how this will affect the rest of Canada in the long run. While Notley is crossing her fingers that oil prices rise and her government has enough revenue to continue with their wild spending without approving any new oil projects or expanding markets, Ontario’s premier Wynne has all her hopes on a lower dollar propelling Ontario’s ¬†economy. Quebec isn’t any better off with its disappointing slow growth. ¬†To date no eastern premier has a winning hand and is going to be looking for more handouts. Maybe this going to be the perfect storm to force oil opponents to get Alberta pipelines to a sea port? They going to need the petro dollars.

With Ontario on track to rack up $50 billion in new debt between now and 2020-21, the province‚Äôs net debt is on track to escalate to a whopping $350 billion. Ben Eisen of the Fraser Institute said “the condition of Ontario‚Äôs economy is much less rosy than the government suggests. The fact Ontario now outpaces the national average is partly a function of weakness elsewhere”. The fact is , the high petro dollar that Premier Wynne blamed for Ontario’s problems isn’t the problem with Ontario. It’s Wynne’s management.

Between 2000 and 2014 , Alberta‚Äôs individual and corporate taxpayers shipped an estimated $200 billion plus to the federal government. This isn’t chicken feed and is going to be missed. The idea the low Canadian dollar propelling Ontario to great riches isn’t going to be Canada’s saviour as hoped for by the Ontario and federal liberals . As embarrassing as it is they need Alberta’s oil wealth.

I wouldn’t be surprised in the near future , behind closed-door and out of the media, these environmental, holier than thou, ¬†NDP and Liberal governments do a 180 degree reversal and become oil and pipeline friendly. Cash is king. And without cash these left wingers aren’t going to be kings. They need money to spend and Alberta can supply. All Alberta needs is new overseas markets.

Today the politicians are once again tooting up another pipeline. Canada’s Energy East Pipeline Project. ¬†A pipeline from West to East. A 4,600- kilometre pipeline that can carry 1.1-million barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in eastern Canada.

I truly hope this isn’t another political fantasy and the need for cash will make it happen.
