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.

Canada – Radical Islam

leave a comment »


Islamic terrorists are out in full force around the world. The Palm Sunday bombing killing 43 innocent souls at a Coptic church in Egypt, the Westminster bridge killing in London, the Saint Petersburg train attack killing 10 and injuring dozens are just a few of the most recent. The world has been plagued with terrorist attacks around the world. The good news is most of the Muslims are peaceful and do not support terror. The bad news is 15-25% of the 1.6 billion Muslims can be classified an Extreme Islamic Muslim . That’s a minimum of 150 million extremist shouting ‘Death for the sake of Allah’ are ready to fight for Islam. The worst part is they are not centralized in one area. These extremist are positioned all over the globe making it impossible to wage a successful traditional attack. This is really a screwed up position for the western world to be in. The questions are how did we get in this terrifying position and whats being done to ease the tension?

There is probably many reasons for why the Islamic terrorist threat grew so fast. One reason is that ISIS was able to recruit immigrants that were not being allowed into any of the 55 Muslim countries. Being country less, no money and no place to go these immigrants were glad to have an offer to be a citizen of the new caliphate. It didn’t matter that the Qur’an was being interpreted in a very selective way and that Islam was hijacked by extremists. When your down and out and only one person offers you a hand up you take it. The Arab would failed.

Not listening to the radicals have also put us behind the eight ball. The Islamic extremist have in the past blamed western foreign policy for all their problems. We (the people) believed if we eliminate these problems we would have peace. The grievances were just rhetoric, secondary to the real reason they hate us which is because we are infidels. They will  hate us until we all believe n Allah. The west simply failed to recognize this.

As Joe bieden said “you never let a good crisis go to waste”. In this case the Liberal left has used the Muslim immigration problem to their advantage. The Muslim migration crisis is a fit for the liberal ‘culture war’ that is being waged on western countries to destabilize their economies so they can be ushered into the boarderless society or the New World Order as some call it.

While the main street media the likes of CNN and CBC is spouting  out propaganda in the west, the Muslim countries are also deep in the propaganda war. They are telling their people it’s an act of self-defence to fight America. America wants to destroy us and is the cause of all our problems. It’s always the Wests fault. This is how the extreme Islamic leaders persuaded their followers to go and fight. By demonizing the West they are indoctrinating followers to their radical interpretations of the Qur’an and inciting hate to produce todays terrorist.

I’m sure you have heard that radical Islam only encompasses a small part of the 1.6 billion Muslims world-wide. Since there is no standard of measuring what percentage of the extremists are part of the 1.6 billion (Pew Research) I’m using 15% to 25% according to all the intelligence services around the world .  This could mean we are looking at up to 300 million people dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization. It’s really hard to wrap your head around the problem.

In 1938, just before world war 2, the British PM Neville Chamberlin thought he could have peace with Hitler. Through his appeasement foreign policy, Chamberlin conceded the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Hitler. The PM went back to Britain proclaiming a war had been averted and there was peace. Just a few months later Hitler attacked Poland and WW2 started. Chamberlin didn’t understand how radical Hitler was and gave him a huge advantage. History appears to be repeating itself. Radical Islam is demonizing the west like Hitler demonized the jews. Appeasement doesn’t work of radicals.

There is only one argument we can put forward to try to stem the forward momentum of these radical Islamists. We have to get the 75% liberal Muslim’s on our side, giving them safety from the crazies and a voice to counter the hate. We can’t lump them into the same boat as the extremist. If we do, that’s where they will end up. If they do side with the extremist we will have a catastrophic problem that will be impossible to solve.

Interesting video; Islam religion needs a review

Trudeau’s Immigrants

with one comment





Met a few friends in the mall a few days ago. Being conservative the conversation quickly turned to Trudeau’s pro Muslim immigration policies. During our lambasting of Trudeau I mention the Roman Empire was brought down because they didn’t accept the barbarian refugees. Maybe that was why the liberals were so pro Muslim. They didn’t want history to repeat itself.  The moment I said that I realized that’s wasn’t the case.

It’s true that the Romans couldn’t stand the barbarian’s and left them to starve with no food or land giving them no alternative but to attack Rome. But, unlike Islam the barbarian’s wanted to assimilate into the Roman culture. They wanted to be part of the good life. On the other hand many of the Islam faith want us to assimilate in their culture. Big difference.

Unfortunately the Romans lacked the foresight  to allow the barbarian’s to be apart of their society, so they got sacked ,putting them on the path to ruin. The Roman’s terrible treatment of immigrants is a good lesson to be learned of what not to do, but doesn’t  explain why the Liberals tolerate Islam immigration which can be intolerant to everything that isn’t Islam such as Christianity. Trudeau definitely seems to favours islamic immigrants.  A faith that many do not want to assimilate into the western culture. Why?

It seems to me the liberals distrain for Christianity and not other religions goes dates back  to the early 16th century. Since Liberalism was secular trapped inside an all-powerful Christian society, the liberals blamed Christianity for not being able to advance their ideas. Other religions like Islam, Buddhism etc. weren’t holding them back, so they tolerated them. Like Machiavelli, they didn’t believe that an ‘imaginary’ ideal society was a model which should be followed. The fact is, the Liberals have had a dislike for christians for centuries which might explain their reluctance to open the immigrations gates to them.

As far as Muslims go, I don’t  think that Liberals actually defend or favour Islam, but they are taking advantage of the crisis to further their political agenda especially against all things Christian (ex: Cadbury drops Easter from egg hunt). They acknowledge that there are many different Muslims who can have very different ideas about “Islam”. Unfortunately I think they have their heads in the fog. It’s as if they feel there could never be any problem with Muslim immigration. It’s as if  Trudeau thinks that a growing Muslim population can practise their faith in our  free society while effortlessly blending into our Canadian society. In many cases around the world it has been shown that it’s not so, especially in Britain.

Personally I believe Western values and laws are superior and must be thoroughly defended throughout our country and want Trudeau and his Liberal government to make sure all immigrants are willing to abide by OUR laws. I don’t want Sharia law Canada and don’t want religion in government.

Finally, we learned from the Romans that we must allow legitimate immigration into Canada.  I wouldn’t want to set up a situation where we paint all muslim’s with the same brush and exclude them from Canada. This could set up a situation where Muslims who interpret the Koran in a more peaceful meaning to pick sides. The estimated number of radicals are between 15-25% [of the Muslim population] according to all intelligence services around the world.  We don’t want to to isolate 75% of the Muslims that don’t advocate violence. We need them on our side.

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.
