There are two types of H.D.S,one is environmental, and after an intervention one can be brot back into reality of the Conservative fold., the other type of H.D.S is inherent and needs genetic modification .— expensive! Can you afford the operation?
CIOUD—-you are full of CO2 and that’s bad!!—-HEY MANN!

While I strongly believe in holocaust awareness, to be honest I think we are OVER aware of one aspect of that human tragedy. While I do not condone Trudeau’s lack of detail in his comment, it is VERY true that more “other people” in the words of Goldstein, died in the holocaust than Jews. To date we almost have a hollywood movie for every Jew killed in the holocaust. I mean, lets be honest here folks, how many movies about the holocaust or documentaries cover the non-Jews murdered? Historically the Jew’s have, for some weird reason, controlled this aspect of history to the point that the world is completely IGNORANT of the truth behind the “others” murdered. Although a tiny insignificant number in comparison to the Jewish people murdered, Canada had many “agents” captured, tortured and murdered at concentration camps. Thousands of Allied troops found their way to concentration camps. Millions of non-Jewish Eastern Europeans perished in concentration camps. Political prisoners, artists, opponents ( many who were GERMAN ) gays, etc. etc. perished.

Then there IS Stalin’s camps and the camps of the Japanese ! Why do we not have a day of remembrance for them!!!!! The media in Canada say that a memorial to the victims of Communism in Ottawa is a waste of time and that communism did not affect Canada! Communism has MURDERED over 100,000,000 people and counting. Maybe there was not a significant amount of Jew’s in that number, but they were people from all over the world. We dont know how many people the Japanese murdered. This is largely because they weren’t Jewish or from the West. Spielberg ( who is a Jew) made some cute movies about the Japanese internment and communism in Eastern Europe and infiltration of the west by Soviet spies. Yet, his holocaust movies make you want to kill somebody in revenge!

There is a MAJOR double standard here. I think Jewish groups know this and propagate it to the fullest. In fact one of the biggest group of anti-Christian complainers in the west are Jews. You can count the number of films funded by Jews, acted by Jews, written by Jews that defame and mock Christianity. This despite the fact that the biggest group of people in the world who would come to the defense of a Jew are CHRISTIANS.

So I just dont believe in the self righteous Jew who uses the holocaust as some sort of barrier for criticism. As I historian, I also think a lot of the truth behind Jewish support for communist regimes has not been told either. Some of the biggest mass murderers in the Soviet movement were Jews. Where are the movies and documentaries about that!

So to be fair to Trudeau, which makes my skin crawl, lets STOP picking favorites when discussing atrocities and be as inclusive as possible so the victims of ALL forms of totalitarianism are remembered. Not just a squeaky wheel segment of those who suffered and died.

You will note that practically ALL forms of TOTALITARIANISM are forms of ultra SOCIALISM or COMMUNISM. The biggies being Hitler (Socialist) and Stalin (Communist). This by MANDATE not by individual action or corruption. That dispell’s any stupid argument from the LEFT asking about those killed in the name of Christianity or Capitalism. Neither Christianity NOR Capitalism have a MANDATE for Murder. You can find this out by simply reading the Bible for one. ISLAM has a MANDATE for MURDER. You will find that out by reading the Koran.

It’s ALL about education people. But hiding aspects of history from the public is also an atrocity. Something the LEFT is very guilty of. If Trudeau wanted to deflect criticism, he should have at least elaborated on who were the victims of the holocaust.

Cruz wins in Iowa.

WW3 started a long time ago when the Islamists infected the West. The hordes have been coming ever since, aided by their fifth-column agents in the establishments in the GOP and the Dems. Times are changing, as the jig is up. In the GOP the tide is lead by Cruz and it will see a new GOP emerge that is determined to win this war. Nukes over the Muslim World will solve a lot of problems, of course. The US will demonstrate that it is the Master of Death and crush all its enemies. And yes, even Canada is an enemy of the US, as we have seen come to pass recently. There are great days of victory ahead – pick a side or perish.

It really doesn’t matter who wins the next election in the USA… both sides are owned by the same governing powers that exist behind the curtain and World War III is an inevitability… It’s only a question how it starts but we all know how it ends.

I think I can tolerate Trump, Cruz, maybe even Sanders as the next POTUS.

So long as it is not Clinton, Bush, Christie, Fiorina or any other establishment RINOS who will just maintain much of the same.

Well said Maurice…
When people lived under the word and the law of God the world was a much better place… as God is perfect in every way and incorruptible. When people turned their back’s on God and put their faith in man instead the result that we have is what we’re living with now. Man is corruptible and sinful by nature and the further we get away from God the more sinful and corruptible man becomes.

Trump is in tough. New Hampshire will be his, but it will be the Super-Tuesday primaries and caucuses that will determine who is really out front. Rubio is the establishment favourite, so it will be wise of Trump to take him on – and there’s much to shoot at. As for Cruz, he’s proving to be a very strong contender and worthy of the White House. He speaks the truth and it will be impossible to beat him leading up to the convention. The RINOs in the GOP establishment are running for their lives now. Their alliances with Islamists and every other enemy of America have been revealed and they will pay dearly for their treachery.

The CINOs in the CPC would be wise to watch the events in the US, for even their time is short.
commented 2016-02-02 00:56:52 -0500
It was really close. Trump was gracious. I’m glad Cruz will give him a run for his money.

Sorry, Peter, but I put my trust in God before I put it in any politician or any political process. That’s why I believe it’s crucial to elect a President who is willing to humble him/herself before the Lord and seek His guidance. Here’s another quote. It’s from arguably the greatest President the US ever had:

“Proclamation 97: Whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord;
And, insomuch as we know that by His divine law nations, like individuals, are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war which now desolates the land may be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole people? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.
It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
Now, therefore, I do by this my proclamation designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting, and prayer. And I do hereby request all the people to abstain on that day from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite at their several places of public worship and their respective homes in keeping the day holy to the Lord and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.
All this being done in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the divine teachings that the united cry of the nation will be heard on high and answered with blessings no less than the pardon of our national sins and the restoration of our now divided and suffering country to its former happy condition of unity and peace. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Signed by:

I think the US, and the World, needs another Abraham Lincoln, not a Donald Trump.

Trump lost. Not a surprise. Even if he somehow becomes the face of the Republicans in 2017 he’ll end up like Stephen Harper. A joke to his party. Where is Stevie now? Just wondering.

I think Canadians are more interested this time around. We’re in trouble with Trudeau, the whole world is in need of a super power to take charge. If the west doesn’t step up, there is a line up of despots waiting to fill the vacuum. This is a crucial election, for the entire globe.
commented 2016-02-01 23:20:53 -0500
Liza, interesting points. I think it is every Democrat’s dream that Trump win the Republican nomination. Canadians seem to be interested in the race as much as they were when Obama first ran.
commented 2016-02-01 22:53:18 -0500
I just want a Republican who can get into the White House. (except Rand Paul). Bernie apparently has raised more money than Trump, not sure how that’s possible. They say most of his donations are small and from the youth demographic. Which says to me, more than a few may get off the couch on voting day in the fall. I think Hilary is tanking. I wonder what a Trump is going to look like, to the young socialist demographic, up against a Bernie Sanders? I’m afraid it may spur more ignorant, idealistic kids to get off the couch. A Republican has to win. Heaven help us if either Dem gets in.

Ted is going to win Iowa.

A successful businessman as President, what a novel idea. Trump would make a great President. Compare him to clowns like Jimmy, Jew hater, Carter! APesident has lots of knowlegeable advisors and unlike Obama knows enough to use them.

Maurice asked, " But EVRYONE running on the Republican side would be better than Trump. They have so many good candidates to choose from, why pick the worst one?"

Well, I am not convinced he is the worst. It is just that he is not a politician that is refreshing. All the others are “politician mouths” (I just coined a new phrase. Like it? ;o) What I mean is that even the best of them (always the Christians) still seem to not be entirely truthful and worm their way around the issue. Politician are expert circumnavigationalists. New word. Trump is blunt and to the point. Yea, bombastic, arrogant, irritating … and the list goes on. This is why I liked Ralph Klein so much. He said what he meant. Did what he said he was going to do. And was down to earth with all his flaws out in the open.

Anyway, that is my speech for the day. Just leave your donation at the door. ;o)

@ Jay Kelly – “I am a little saddened to see you write that you would not mind if Alberta separates from Canada and becomes the 51st State of the U.S. .” & “I think you mentioned it in the past, but where do you live again?”

I am an Albertan, 3rd gen.

Considering the way Alberta has been treated by Eastern Canada throughout the years … and BC is often also hostile to Alberta … and now considering the attack on the oil and gas industry, Alberta and Canada’s main economic engine, I would be happy if Alberta left the ungrateful Eastern bastards and joined the US.

Am I pissed at the ROC that (not all but most) have a hate-on for Alberta while taking our wealth and then crapping on us with insults and trashing the same industry (oil) that pays them so much? Yes. Why shouldn’t I be? One can only take so much and no more!

Only one fact is indisputable. Clinton would be the worst possible choice.

It’s going to come down to contest of Canadian born teddy bear and a Joseph bidding for Obama.

As far as I’m concerned, Trump is the only candidate with enough gumption to stand up and say Boo, to the Muslims. This means that the whole world should be supporting him.

Iowa, in the sense that it dose not have the ‘Umph’ to sway other States, is not really an important win, though it would be good for Trump as a jump off victory.
commented 2016-02-01 16:25:47 -0500
Liza, you make an excellent point.. noted that during the Bush (right) era, we has a liberal era, during the obama era (left), we had the Harper era, and if there is a Trump era, we are going to be stuck in a trudeau era… yes, we always seem to be out of step with our largest business partner, but unfortunately, that’s the way the ball bounces.
commented 2016-02-01 16:02:31 -0500
“I would expect Trump to recognize this and treat Canada with the respect that we deserve”………And with Trudeau as PM that wouldn’t be much, but I suppose that’s our own fault.
commented 2016-02-01 15:56:16 -0500
To be clear, I’ve been speaking out against Trump since the 1980’s, when I heard that he is running for president, I thought that the world has gone mad… but, over the last few months, I find myself supporting him, here’’s why:
The truth is, the president, any president, does very little… they have a team of 20 or so in their ‘inner circle’, and it’s them who really call the shots… If a professional politician were to win, I would expect them to to fill their inner circle as a reward to their donors or supporters or whomever they are beholden to… however, Trump, despite him being so-so, I have the most faith that Trump would hire, for his inner circle, the best people for the position, bar-none…. even hire his competitors, a common business practice. This is what business people do and politicians do not. As well, like it or not, a strong America means a strong Canada…. and obama has consistently weakened America.. I suspect hillary or that whack commie would do even worse than obama… and lastly, Canada is, for the most part, America’s biggest supplier and biggest customer… coming from a business background, I would expect Trump to recognize this and treat Canada with the respect that we deserve.

Maurice said, “The only good thing I see about for Canada/US relations in a Trump Presidency is that he would kick Trudeau’s ass. It might be fun to watch, but it would be very painful.”

Yes, while I would enjoy watching Trudeau squirm, Trump is going to eat us for lunch. We’ll probably end up getting even less for our resource exports to them than we already do. We have to get our stuff to other markets so we’re not always between this rock and a hard place. It would be that way with any body as pres., but I just have the feeling Trump can be really ruthless, and we need them a lot more than they need us. I too would take any other of the republican candidates. With the exception of Rand. His foreign policy is weak, and he wants to cut back on the military.

Peter Netterville, I whole-heartedly agree that almost anyone would be better than Clinton or Saunders. But EVRYONE running on the Republican side would be better than Trump. They have so many good candidates to choose from, why pick the worst one? My choice would still be Dr. Ben Carson because he is the one with the most unshakable moral integrity…. and I believe he’s a lot more savvy than most people think. He may not come across that way because he’s not a braggart. He’s a humble man, but he’s deep. I stand by that, but I don’t have a vote…. and neither do you, I assume… unless, of course, you have duel citizenship. Who they choose is also critical to Canada. The only good thing I see about for Canada/US relations in a Trump Presidency is that he would kick Trudeau’s ass. It might be fun to watch, but it would be very painful.

Peter, yes we need a strong U.S., but we didn’t fight the war of 1812 for nothing. I don’t want to ‘speak ’ American. We’re Canadians and we are different. We would be absorbed, and we wouldn’t be happy.

As far as Trump is concerned, if he wins Iowa, he will be in really good shape. I do not trust the guy. I hope anyone else gets Iowa. If Trump doesn’t, Cruz probably will, I would prefer Cruz over Trump.
