A day of terror -- and Trudeau's "epic hug-a-thug" foreign policy

Marissa SemkiwRebel Commentator

Toronto Sun columnist Anthony Furey joins me to discuss today's terrorist attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait and what this could mean for Canada in light of the upcoming federal election.

The Islamists have told us in their own words that they will make this a worldwide fight. Are either of the opposition leaders capable of keeping Canadians safe from terrorist attacks?

If the Conservatives don’t form a majority government, then we as Canadians can kiss our lives as we know it goodbye. Yes, I know that the Conservatives have issues! I don’t agree with the selling off of the Canadian Wheat Board to a Saudi/US whatever…It is stupid and has a lot of people angry at the Harper government with just cause. Then there is this and that to gripe over BUT…let’s get real! Who will care about job creation, environmental issues, health care, wheat boards, oil & gas pipelines, etc. if the Muslim terrorists take over? Look at the Middle East….once there is a majority then they take control and there will be NO MORE ELECTIONS. It’s all peace and love when they are a minority..but once they become stronger and have a foothold in the government then look out cause the nightly news won’t be about the Middle East and terrorism anymore…..it will be about the terrorism here in Canada & the US (which already has a Muslim President) Justin Trudeau especially, is clueless as to running a country. Obama thinks that jobs would cure the ISIS problem….get real….they have more money than the President! Trudeau thinks blankets and other humanitarian aid is suitable. How about STOPPING the slaughter of innocent people??? Dead people don’t need blankets….they need justice before they are brutally murdered!!! With all the military might I don’t even comprehend how this is still going on!!

The so called day of terror could very easily become the norm for all country’s on this earth. People need to wake up and realize that this isn’t something that only happens on the other side of the world. It is happening right here at home. If it’s not stopped dead in its tracks. It will be a daily occurrence in all of our lives. Only a fool would believe otherwise.

This is not a time for me to care about Trudeau’s comments. I can only feel profound empathy for the victims of these pigs whose perverted imaginations have upped the ante on killing for joy. These victims are as real as you and I. My mind shuts down if I try to imagine their horror. I am so very sorry for you.

I may not always agree with Anthony, but I do respect his opinion…

Rick – Pelladeau is leader of the Bloc Quebecois. That should give you a clue. He is a fierce promoter of free speech – all free speech, not just hard-right opinion propaganda.

SNN gave voice to a diverse range of opinion and encouraged free debate – a truly unique media and social media community that I miss very much.

As to why therebel gives Furey a voice (and the Toronto Sun, don’t forget, where he still is a columnist), maybe it is because he is a Libertarian.

Furey is not only a Libertarian, he is a free thinker and a fair political analyst. Hence, his fair analysis of Mulcair’s strengths over those of Trudeau.

Conservatives cannot win by ignoring our opponents strengths. Or by sticking our heads in the sand and thinking trashing our opponents and anyone like Furey who recognizes the potency of their threat will help us win. Only by knowing our opponents can we even hope to defeat them.

I agree, Rick, that having either Trudeau or Mulcair in as PM would be disastrous in a variety of ways, not all the same way, but one would be the same, cowardice. However, if Harper does not win the election, and I seriously hope he does win, then I would rather Mulcair be in the PM chair than Trudeau, the lesser of two idiots, by a very slim margin.

Furey is a legend in his own mind. I have no idea why SUN – and now the Rebel – lend their microphone to a faux conservative.

There is no version of cowardice, whether from Trudeau or Mulcair, that will keep us safe.

You know, the pundits are not wrong who suggest the NDP may be peaking too soon. None of the parties has brought out their big guns yet. Wait until the writ drops; then look at the polls.

Also, it may be too early to take our eye off Trudeau as a threat. His arrogance is growing. He actually credibly pulled it off when he called Milewski’s question “nonsensical”. He is growing in confidence and is beginning to act much more like his father did – extremely confident and arrogant – and that sort of self-assurance can fool people like a drug does.

The real ones to watch are the union lobbies and the media lobbies. Scandal after scandal after scandal exposed, in high definition, about Conservatives while Liberal and NDP scandals get back-page coverage, if at all.

Whose idea do you suppose it was to perp walk Del Mastro in fucking leg irons? While Ben Levin was hustled out a side door to avoid the press.

Del Mastro will appeal and he can win. The judge erred for partisan reasons, as is far too typical of judiciary these days, but he won’t win before the election.

And while I think Meredith is a moron, I can’t help but wonder who paid the girl to set him up and/or to expose him. Conservatives really need to watch our backs.

I agree with the Furey that Canada would be safer with Mulcair at the helm.

Mulcair espouses the same rhetoric about the global-caliphate Islamists as Trudeau, but if and when push comes to shove, Mulcair won’t hesitate to push back hard as it takes. Trudeau, on the other hand, would sell his mother for a Saudi royal crown.

Those who claim Canada is at no risk only take into account the very violent attacks on our democracy, which have been not few but relatively few because we have great intelligence.

But the violent attacks are just the tip of the growing iceberg of Islamist threat in Canada. Anti-semitism has been on the rise over the past twenty years as campuses have required speakers like Daniel Pipes to have police security whenever they attend our campuses as guest speakers.

Lots of folks don’t understand, either, how the anti-feminist, anti-gay revival promotes the Islamist stealth jihad agenda. They want our society to segregate women, to ostracize gays.

Whenever you say voices like mine don’t exist – voices that promote the feminist core value of gender equity for the whole world in opposition to the global-caliphate shariah law that says women are worth half, deserve flogging for showing a little ankle, are responsible for rape and deserve honour killings – you help establish the goals of Islamist stealth jihad right here in Canada.

Well said Ken and Yvette, I am seriously thinking about cancelling my daughters travel plans. And Mulcair talks about infringements on our liberties. What a joke to oppose Bill C-51. How could the polls have that two cent lawyer ahead in the polls.

Harper’s campaign line should be “doing more with less”. His government has created an image of a more militaristic nation while cutting military spending to 0.89% of GDP. That is the lowest level of spending since the 1930’s! Trudeau would almost certainly increase the spending on the armed forces while making Canada appear a more peaceful nation. In other words, when it comes to military matters, Trudeau would “do less with more”.

Come and kill us— We understand why you hate us. Vote Liberal.

Trudeau continues to show why he isn’t fit to lead even a boy scout troop. I cannot remember in my many years on this earth, anyone so ill equipped to lead a country. Every time he opens his trap stupid comes out. Heaven help us all of this fool ever becomes PM.
commented 2015-06-26 21:53:38 -0400
Trudeau…..the man is an absolute fool & frankly, Mulcaire is not far behind when it comes to Canada’s security. I shudder to think what might happen if either of them gets in power & we have an ISIS attack on our soil. Who are these people taking part in these polls. I have never been polled on a political matter my whole life. How can Mulcaire be leading & Trudeau neck a neck with Harper. The whole thing is insane.
