Politicians these days are full of worthless crooks I wouldn't urinate on them if they were on fire. Thinking about them makes me physically ill.

I used to be proud of my union and my socialist party. Not anymore. They have been hijacked by progressive money. Progs are the enemy of blue collar people.


Look, I know the people here like to separate right and left but there is no separation for me...

It's THE GOVERNMENT and they just change the jockey.

The only thing I can do to protect my sanity for politics is to involve myself with hobbies I love.

I'm not so sue about that caskur..

There are people here that acknowledge the old left-right divide is dead and something new has emerged.


Did you watch Greta Thunberg emotional speech recently?

Double standards

Montreal — a Liberal candidate in montreal ousted over alleged anti-semitic comments said tuesday there is a double standard in the party when it comes to judging what is acceptable past conduct.

Hassan Guillet, who will run as an Independent but still refers to the Liberals in the first person, said he still doesn’t understand his sudden removal over social media posts described by b’nai brith as anti-israel and anti-semitic.

Guillet did not directly refer to Liberal Leader Justin trudeau’s blackface scandal following the publication last week of images showing him in brownface and blackface on three occasions. but Guillet said “several candidates in our party as well as others” have been confronted by old photographs or comments.

“I was the only one who had to pay the price for old publications,” he told a news conference in the east-end riding of Saint-Leonard-Saint-Michel, joined by a small group of supporters.

“I feel that there is a double standard. It’s obvious.”

He said discussions with the party about his candidacy began in november 2017 and that his controversial comments “were known by the party a very, very long time ago.”

By former Tory finance minister Joe Oliver.

Which one is the real Justin Trudeau?

Well, that didn’t take long. After intense focus on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s three blackface photos last week, many in the media are back spouting Liberal talking points. The Liberal campaign, tired of being on the defensive, quickly reverted to painting Conservatives as bigoted cretins and to frenzied promises that would leave our children indebted for untold billions.

However, this issue won’t go away so quickly because it reinforced the negative perception of Trudeau as a lightweight and a phoney, dealt a blow to his identity as a woke social warrior and undermined his legitimacy in Canada and around the world. It also raises the burning question of who Justin Trudeau really is.

History is strewn with flawed heroes brought down because of personal weaknesses that were evident to everyone else. As in a Greek tragedy, hubris can motivate a contemporary leader to break a moral code and end his glorious political career in disgrace.

Trudeau has many classic signs of narcissism, including a belief in his superiority, a profound sense of entitlement, boundless ambition, charm, competitiveness, need for constant praise and relishing the centre of attention. Paradoxically, narcissists often use and abuse others due to low self-esteem and insecurity, in some cases because they couldn’t measure up intellectually to a father figure.

This may explain Trudeau’s obsessive showboating — the Superman T-shirt, statement socks, eagerness for selfies, cringeworthy Bollywood dress-up and serial blackface performances. Part is political theatre, and since for him all the world’s a stage, he loves playing the starring role.

It may also explain why, when he feels thwarted, Trudeau can lose his cool or act vindictively or with indifference to others. Recall how he manhandled the Conservative Whip, the late Gord Brown, and elbowed NDP MP Ellen Brosseau in the House of Commons. Far worse was his treatment of Jody Wilson-raybould and Jane Philpott for standing up to him on principle and the malicious failed prosecution of Vice-admiral Mark Norman, a 33-year navy veteran. He also unceremoniously ejected from caucus every Liberal Senator, many longtime party loyalists, as well as numerous MPS, often without a hearing into their alleged offences.

Trudeau seems taken back when foreign leaders won’t tolerate the condescending sanctimony he can get away with at home. Somehow, he thought he could persuade Xi Jinping, supreme leader of 1.4 billion people, to change China’s labour laws or coax the ‘America First’ president to adopt his gender equity and climate policies. And he expected Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ignore that he downplayed Indian concerns about Khalistan separatism. With the latest revelations, Trudeau diminished his standing internationally and weakened our chance for a Security Council seat.

Sometimes, Trudeau’s platitudes are so vacuous you would think you were listening to Chance the Gardner in the 1979 film Being There. On other occasions, his troubling declarations challenge fundamental beliefs Canadians have fought and died for — Canada has no core identity, it is the first post-national state, how much he admired the basic Chinese dictatorship and Fidel Castro.

Is Trudeau’s vision that Canada’s sovereignty be subsumed in a multilateral organization run by a socialist autocrat and administered by progressive bureaucrats?

If not tightly scripted, he seems to blurt out whatever he heard on his father’s knee or what his left-wing handlers whispered in the ear of their Manchurian candidate.

Given his erratic and inconsistent behaviour, we are entitled to ask who our Prime Minister really is, what are his fundamental values and what psychological forces are driving his decision making.

The ultimate question is, can he be trusted to lead our country for another four years?

Our prog media still loves Justine, but the international community does not. They think he is a racist.

That seems accurate enough.
