"This Is How Fascism Comes To America" ....

This is How Fascism Comes To America
by Robert Kagan - The Washington Post

"The Republican Party’s attempt to treat Donald Trump as a normal political candidate would be laughable were it not so perilous to the republic. If only he would mouth the party’s “conservative” principles, all would be well.
But of course the entire Trump phenomenon has nothing to do with policy or ideology. It has nothing to do with the Republican Party, either, except in its historic role as incubator of this singular threat to our democracy. Trump has transcended the party that produced him. His growing army of supporters no longer cares about the party. Because it did not immediately and fully embrace Trump, because a dwindling number of its political and intellectual leaders still resist him, the party is regarded with suspicion and even hostility by his followers. Their allegiance is to him and him alone.
And the source of allegiance? We’re supposed to believe that Trump’s support stems from economic stagnation or dislocation. Maybe some of it does. But what Trump offers his followers are not economic remedies — his proposals change daily. What he offers is an attitude, an aura of crude strength and machismo, a boasting disrespect for the niceties of the democratic culture that he claims, and his followers believe, has produced national weakness and incompetence. His incoherent and contradictory utterances have one thing in common: They provoke and play on feelings of resentment and disdain, intermingled with bits of fear, hatred and anger. His public discourse consists of attacking or ridiculing a wide range of “others” — Muslims, Hispanics, women, Chinese, Mexicans, Europeans, Arabs, immigrants, refugees — whom he depicts either as threats or as objects of derision. His program, such as it is, consists chiefly of promises to get tough with foreigners and people of nonwhite complexion. He will deport them, bar them, get them to knuckle under, make them pay up or make them shut up.

Bullying Is NOT Leadership Mr. Trudeau.

Bullying is not leadership, whether it is invoking Closure on an important Bill or testosteronic rampaging on the floor of the House of Commons which injured a fellow Member of Parliament. Just sayin' :(

Liberals Appear To Be Reneging on Pot Reform Promises !!! Trudeau Instructs Police Forces To CONTINUE Arresting Canadians For Simple Possession. LYING LIBERALS !!

LYING LIBERALS ON POT REFORM NOW !! - 'Keep busting them' says Trudeau!!!

Justin Trudeau has advised the nations police to continue to harass and arrest Canadians for simple possession of marijuana. What a lying bunch of opportunists you guys are:

(Police unions are worried about Cannabis decrim/legalization for a number of reasons .. not the least of which as a 'job security' issue. No one states it but that's one of the bigger challenges on this policy change issue. That's why you have a former 'cop' in charge of the file for the optics needed to reassure Canada's organized and nervouse police unions/associations. Liberals better get honest and fast. You've ticked me off and .. boys .. its on!)

"Credit where credit is due." - Oil Sands Companies Demonstrate Leadership On Climate Change = Ezra's PISSED !!

 (Click on image to enlarge .. )

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 22, 2015) - Four of Canada's largest oil sands producers have come together to demonstrate leadership on climate change. Canadian Natural Resources Limited, Cenovus Energy Inc., Shell Canada Limited and Suncor Energy Inc., support the Government of Alberta's climate plan related to the oil and natural gas industry, which includes a carbon pricing regime coupled with an overall emissions limit for the oil sands. These measures provide predictability and certainty and will help ensure that producers can responsibly develop and grow this significant Canadian resource while also addressing global concerns about climate change.
The companies agree that this is a historic development for Alberta and Canada that will change the conversation about climate change, oil sands and infrastructure. They are proud to have worked with leading environmental organizations to better understand each other's views and recommend solutions for the oil and natural gas industry that helped inform the policy.
By directing revenue generated from the new carbon pricing regime towards the development of potentially game-changing greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction technologies, this made-in-Alberta plan lays the foundation for the province to become a global leader in addressing the climate change challenge. It also creates the conditions for Alberta's oil to become carbon competitive on the global stage and for Canadians to begin receiving full value for their oil exports.
By demonstrating that Alberta is willing to lead the way with an ambitious climate plan, the province can become a preferred source for oil and create sustained wealth and jobs for future generations of Albertans and Canadians.

The REAL Reason That Stephen Harper DID NOT Resign His Seat When He Resigned as PM And Party Leader ...

"Words don't mean much to Stephen."
Preston Manning

Our outgoing Prime Minister does not want to testify at the criminal trial of Senator Mike Duffy. He wants to use his Parliamentary 'privilege' to try and stay off the witness stand. If there is any justice in Canada, the courts will NOT allow him to flaunt parliamentary privilege in a criminal case.  (It just gets worse and worse with this weasel of a man).

The Flotsam And Jetsam That Is The Conservative Federal Caucus ....

A defeated, yet still highly offensive group of political like minds will join together in Ottawa today. They are known as the Conservative Party of Canada Federal Caucus.  While in power they raised the debt of Canada by tens of billions. They enriched their corporate sponsors with embarrassingly huge amounts of tax dollars. They badly dented the CDN Charter of Rights and Freedoms. They are, and remain, a disgrace to the nation. 

I hope they wallow in their well deserved misery for a long time.

If there was one ounce of political decency in the room, they would bounce Stephen Harper out of their Caucus, and force him to sit alone in Parliament as an independent member. They will not. They are too brow beaten and too scared to do anything substantive.

Internal rot has enveloped them. I can smell the stink from here .....
