Seriously! Notley’s Alberta‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs become obvious there are very powerful forces that don‚Äôt 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‚Äôs 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 ‚ÄėTrudeau Brigade‚Äô. 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 ‚Ä™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‚Äôt solve anything. Alberta needs a long-term plan. A plan that Notley can‚Äôt steal from UCP Jason Kenney come election time. In the meantime using train to transport oil is the option.

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.

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.

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

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

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.”


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.
