The New York Times uses Nutbar Outback to Diss Trump …

The murder of 50 Muslim worshipers in New Zealand , allegedly by a 28-year-old Australian white supremacist, will be long scrutinized for the way violent hatreds are spawned and staged on social media and the internet. But now the world should learn from the way Jacinda Ardern , New Zealand’s prime minister, has responded to the horror.

Almost immediately after last Friday’s killings , Ms. Ardern listened to her constituents’ outrage and declared that within days her government would introduce new controls on the military-style weapons that the Christchurch shooter and many of the mass killers in the United States have used on their rampages. And she delivered.                                                                                                                           

On Thursday , Ms. Ardern announced a ban on all military-style semiautomatic and automatic weapons , parts that can be used to turn other rifles into such weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. “ It’s about all of us ” she said … “ it’s in the national interest and it’s about safety.”

Earlier in the week , she told Parliament that social media sites must address the ease with which the internet can be used to spew hate and images of violence. “ We cannot simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist and that what is said on them is not the responsibility of the place where they are published … It cannot be a case of all profit, no responsibility.”

Ms. Ardern didn’t propose immediate measures to limit the reach of Facebook , Twitter and other internet publishers , and it’s not obvious what could be done without trampling freedom of speech ( That does seem to be where a lot of this is heading tho … ) But she made clear that she believed that those social media platforms , like gun manufacturers and dealers , bore some responsibility for the carnage visited on Christchurch and so many communities in recent years.

The ban on terrorists’ weapon of choice was only one of the areas in which Ms. Ardern showed what leadership looks like in time of crisis. In lieu of trite messages , she donned a black head scarf and led a group of politicians to visit victims’ families , speaking without a script to a school some of the victims attended , she urged the pupils to “ let New Zealand be a place where there is no tolerance for racism. Ever. We cannot know your grief , but we can walk with you at every stage.”

It still comes down to the fact that any ‘ law ‘ regarding the ownership of weapons only curtails the activity of ‘ law abiding individuals … Criminals that have no moral concern about breaking the law of killing other people don’t give a shit about breaking the law of acquiring and using those weapons in a criminal and immoral fashion …

Declaring ‘ military weapons ‘ illegal doesn’t cease , or even decrease the actions of people with a screw or two loose … No more than making pot legal magically puts an end to illegal drug trafficing …

 

They continually blast Trump for past behavior … But this Beto moron is given a free pass ?!!! …

Last week Robert Francis “ Beto ” O’Rourke announced his candidacy for president. The Left went bonkers for the man many describe as “ Kennedyesque ”…

O’Rourke belonged to the oldest group of computer hackers in U.S. history. The Cult of the Dead Cow was notorious for releasing tools that allowed ordinary people to hack computers running Microsoft Windows. He stole long distance telephone service so he “ wouldn’t run up the phone bill ”…

The Cult of the Dead Cow’s website has a disclaimer that remains to this day … “ Warning :  This site may contain explicit descriptions of or advocate one or more of the following :  adultery , murder , morbid violence , bad grammar , deviant sexual conduct in violent contexts or the consumption of alcohol and illegal drugs ”…

None , and I mean none , of this was known during his senate race against Cruz … A reporter for Reuters , Joseph Menn , knew about this man’s twisted mind back in 2017 and sat on it.

According to Menn , a reporter for Reuters , members of the hacking group were protecting O’Rourke’s identity and wouldn’t confirm his affiliation unless the reporter promised not to write about it until after the November election.

Ted Cruz

@tedcruz

So Reuters had evidence in 2017 that Beto may have committed multiple felonies—which Beto confirmed on the record—but deliberately withheld the story for over a year to help him win his Senate race ? But when he’s running against Bernie etc, NOW it’s news ?

Democrats who would stop at nothing to crucify Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings with unfounded accusations implore us not to judge the musings of a teenaged Beto.  O’Rourke’s past is steeped in facts for all the world to see.

The media is in the tank for Beto and a multitude of lemmings will be fooled by his honeyed words. They do not possess the intellect needed to characterize people by their actions or sniff out a good line of bullshit.

Liberals NEED Conservative playbook for Dairy sector …

Faced with an anxious dairy industry poised to complicate the next federal election for the Liberals — particularly in rural ridings in Quebec and Ontario — the federal Liberals are reviving the previous Conservative government’s compensation plan to ease the pain of recent trade agreements.

Ironic doncha think !!! … Takin a page outta Herr Harper’s playbook !!! … The Libs are really sensin’ an end to there elongated honeymoon with the , now , fed up public ! …

Between trade agreements already in effect — with the European Union and Pacific Rim trading partners — and the still-unratified rewrite of the North American free trade agreement , dairy farmers have said they believe at least ten per cent of Canada’s dairy market has been given up to foreign suppliers going forward.

Poultry and egg farmers are also at risk of losing significant shares of their supply-managed markets to American producers if the new NAFTA proceeds.

This is why we Canadians keep getting hosed by the propped up farmers in Ontario and KBec … Don’t get me wrong , farming is pretty much a 18 hour a day toil , 7 days a week , but … Hey , if ya can’t compete , get outta the business … I’m tired of paying fixed , inflated prices …

In their defense tho …” There’s recognition that harm has been done. And that those revenue losses will be ongoing in the dairy industry ” said David Wiens , who represents Manitoba on the board of the Dairy Farmers of Canada.

While this prospect of help is welcome … ” To be in a situation where we’re having to receive compensation from the government would not have been the choice of any dairy farmer in the country.”

Dairy concessions were the price Canada had to pay to be part of all three of these trade deals. Wiens said farmers were asked to ” take one for the team ” for the sake of the country’s overall economic growth.

Yeah … Trump ‘ out dealed ’em with reality …

But Harper had a plan for that , one which the incoming Liberals chose to ignore  …

Officials said Tuesday that process isn’t over. In the meantime, this federal budget shows what’s being offered to counter the negative effects of both CETA and the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership ( CPTPP ) , both of which took effect at the end of the year:

  • Up to $2.15 billion in ” support to sustain the incomes of eligible dairy , poultry and egg farmers ” that will be ” available in the coming years to deal with income losses associated with these agreements.”
  • A $1.5 billion ” quota value guarantee program ” to protect the value of investments made by farmers if they are forced to sell their quota at reduced prices because new foreign competition has undermined the value of quota in what is now a less-protected market.

It’s the same approach the Tories took to trade compensation :

One pool of funds available for demonstrated income losses and to help rural communities with the transition , and a second pool to protect farmers and commercial lenders ( who may have financed farm investments ) from reduced quota values.

” The structure of it is very similar , almost identical ” said Rachel Curran , who was Stephen Harper’s director of policy at the time. ” It looks like the aid package for farmers was essentially lifted from the 2015 campaign announcement.”

But now that they’re scrambling … They quickly get ‘ right on it ‘ , never having a plan of their own for it from the start ! … And Junior was the one ‘ negotiating ‘ the NAFTA with Trump ! …

The Conservatives’ $4.3 billion package from 2015 was criticized as overly-generous , Curran said. ” It was expected, at that point , that actual losses [ from the TPP ] would not be anywhere near those numbers.”

The concessions made in the new NAFTA are larger than those Canada made to get the former TPP , she noted.

But offering $3.9 billion without real details ? ” This looks like almost a last-minute insertion ” Curran said , calling it a ” defensive cover-off.”

” It’s almost certainly a response to supply-managed farmers , who are well-organized, and well-funded , and they have no hesitation running advertising campaigns against the government or criticizing the government if they feel that they’re not being properly supported ” she said.

” This was almost certainly put in place to forestall that in advance of the 2019 election. Guaranteed.”

You can take that to the bank Rachel !!! …

Trudeau’s budget is just another act …

So how did it come to this ?

How did we come to have a prime minister who isn’t really a prime minister so much as he plays one on TV ?

For whom the clear meaning of words means nothing ?

Who flip-flops with every passing fad ?

Who , everyone knew — when his university buddy Gerald Butts resigned as his principal secretary over Lavscam — that the real brain in the PMO left along with him.

And let’s make this perfectly clear … Gerry hasn’t gone anywhere … He’s just ‘ officially ‘ stepped aside … If you think for a minute Junior isn’t still constantly talking to and being influenced by his long time college buddy , you HAVE to be one of the far too many morons that voted this twerp in !!! …

” We pay top dollar for your vote !!! “…

This budget does not balance itself.

In the fourth budget delivered by Finance Minister Bill Morneau , the deficit is set to ring in at $19.8 billion , up from $14.9 billion for last year.

And in the years to come , it is deficits as far as the eye can see.

“ The most important promise we made to Canadians is that we would invest in their futures ” Morneau said when asked why he didn’t keep the promise to balance the books this year. 

Forget about all that other bullshit … Focus on this ! …

What exactly the government is investing in isn’t clear. Maybe that’s because they are taking a shotgun approach and spreading money liberally in all directions.

The government will spend $500 million year on a fund for prescription drugs that target rare diseases and will establish an office to look at setting up a national pharmacare plan but won’t actually establish a national pharmacare plan.

They will establish a program through Canada Mortgage and Housing that will commit $1.25 billion over three years on home affordability.

And they will even offer up what they call “ universal high-speed internet.”

Yes , high-speed internet is now a government program and the Trudeau Liberals will spend $5 billion-$6 billion over the next 10 years to build out internet services that meet government standards to rural , remote and northern communities.

Ah Bill … You’re not gonna compete with these Silicon Valley billionaires !!! …

There is even a program to help you get skills training — even if the training you take has nothing to do with your current job.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau had suggested a national program for prescription drugs would be part of the budget ; instead there will be a new national drug agency to look into working with the provinces and territories to drive down costs through bulk purchasing.

“ This would help individual Canadians — such as seniors — and their families afford the medicines they need. It would support the sustainability of the drug plans they rely on today, and pave the way for national pharmacare tomorrow ” Morneau said in the House of Commons.

Again , this is simply a ‘ promise ‘ to ‘ look into it ‘ … He has stated no ‘ concrete ‘ viable plan as to how to go about it … Just spend MORE money by paying a bunch of people to sit around a conference table and chat about it for months , years on end ! …

David MacDonald, senior economist with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives — a left wing think tank — supports the idea.

“This is a step in the right direction,” MacDonald said.

What direction that would be though isn’t clear. The government is simply going to study the idea and attempt to come up with a national formulary of which drugs are covered in what the government calls “an evidence-based list.”

Well of course !!! … Is a Left wing nutjob !!! …

Clearly this aligns perfectly with Kid Selfie’s ‘ Don’t worry , the budget will balance itself ‘ nonsense and amounts to appealing to the young and uneducated , immigrants and everyone else that’s only interested in handouts …

Really … Despite the enormous , collective cost to the taxpayer … 50 bucks a YEAR … Makes little difference to anyone’s financial situation … 

Getting a ‘ tax credit ‘ for a couple hundred bucks annually on a mortgage for almost half a million dollar house is by no means a ‘ deal maker ‘ for putting yourself in , for most people , WAY your head in debt for a house …

Now remember you liberal voting schmucks … Junior ‘ promised ‘ he was going to balance the budget this year to get elected in 2015 … 

Do you really think any of THESE ‘ promises ‘ mean diddlyshit as well ?!

Trudeau goes mosque-hoppin’ …

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is visiting the Muslim community in Ottawa Sunday after 50 people were killed in a terrorist attack at a mosque in Christchurch , New Zealand.

What’s he gonna do now ? … Apologize ‘ for Canada ‘ that some nutjob halfway ’round the globe in New Zealand sent 50 odd people to have an eternal chat with Allah ?!!! …

Trudeau will be at the South Nepean Muslim Community mosque in Barrhaven at around 6:30 p.m. for a private meeting with members of the congregation.

A spokesperson for the prime minister said the visit aims to show his solidarity with the Muslim community following the ” senseless ” terrorist attack in Christchurch.

Fifty people were killed and another 41 were injured in attacks at two mosques filled with worshippers Friday.

New Zealand’s prime minister called it one of the country’s ” darkest days.”

It does nothing to console people here in Canada , who in turn have nothing to do with it … We … All sane people know that this is unacceptable , violent and to be eradicated … But Junior has rather imprtant business to attend to and he can do absolutely nothing at Barrhaven …

Not that he can do much anywhere else in Ottawa for that matter !!! …

Can ya here the ‘ Tick Tick Tick ‘ Junior ? …

It took Kathleen Wynne’s Ontario Liberals a decade to dig itself into such a deep hole that it lost party status.

The same disease is now afflicting the governing federal Liberals. But, instead of incrementally losing touch with reality, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in a free-fall seven months before the election and after only three years in power. Trudeau thinks acting the role of Prime Minister instead of actually doing the job is good enough.

RunninOutOfBS

Just about everyone who’s familiar with Lavscam sees a government out of touch with reality.The only exceptions are a clutch of politicos in the Prime Minister’s Office and the Privy Council Office. And the PCO head Michael Wernick’s disgraceful appearances at the Justice Committee show that he’s unfit for the job , shooting Trudeau’s partisan bullets at Jody Wilson-Raybould.

Outside government , wacky Sheila Copps of Rat Pack fame and loopy Toronto Star columnist Heather Mallick think everything’s fine. Nothing to see here.

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development is reviewing Canada’s compliance with the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. That’s the kind of review you’d expect of developing countries rife with corruption.

Interestingly , Trudeau and his bunch of gofers justified harassing Wilson-Raybould into a deferred prosecution agreement by claiming they could save 9,000 jobs. But a country being under an OECD bribery investigation sends bad vibes to international businesses who might want to invest in Canada.

Brilliant.

How serious is Trudeau taking this ?…

He gave a press conference where his spinners were suggesting ahead of time , he would be contrite , maybe even apologetic. Not a chance. It was our former substitute drama teacher at his best. Appearing calm , speaking slowly , Trudeau blamed Wilson-Raybould for not coming to him with her protests. She , of course , has presented very compelling evidence to the contrary.
