Obama wants to start a war with Russia — with help from establishment Republicans

Ezra LevantRebel Commander Ezra Levant
 

Guest host Faith Goldy reports: This week, from the comfort of his Hawaiian vacation, Obama ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and imposed sanctions on two Russian intelligence agencies in “retaliation” for "hacking" the election. This even though the CIA and FBI found zero hard evidence of Russian involvement in Wikileaks or the presidential race.

Why is Obama poking the Russian bear now, in the final days of his administration? What’s next?

And why doesn't anyone seem to care?

Conservatives assure each other that the Democrats are on the way out, so with the Republicans ruling the House and Senate, President-elect Donald J Trump will simply make the whole mess go away.

But it's not actually that simple. You see, while Trump has absolutely no appetite for war with Russia, he is actually an outlier when it comes to the GOP establishment — which is now preparing to use NATO as a vehicle for war… 

Tonight's guests:

Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidate Pierre Lemieux, plus Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein on the new Ontario carbon tax.

METTE REED, I tend to agree that “Lemieux has been the only one to even take it this far. He at least will call it Radical Islamic Terrorism”. As I mentioned earlier, “Pierre Lemieux, finally a conservative leadership candidate getting closer to the mark re Canadian’s primary concern re immigration, the elephant in the room that most candidates don’t want to touch, but since he is a gun owner, closer but not a bull’s eye”.
In his mail out entitled “Radical Islamic Terrorism”, I liked that he pointed out that, “We cannot afford to be complacent and assume that Canada is immune to these threats”. He also said, “Canada needs a leader who will call this threat what it is: radical Islamic terrorism. A Canadian values test won’t make Canadians safe. Terrorists won’t share their true values with our immigration officials. Canada needs a leader who will ensure that our immigration system has the resources to keep terrorists out of our country. We need to focus on analyzing facts and reducing risk – not measuring values." Better to keep the terrorists out of the country than having to make massive expenditures ramping up our internal security in an effort to prevent terrorist attacks. Still some vagueness, however, about “the resources to keep terrorists out of our country”.
With respect to “He at least will call it Radical Islamic Terrorism”, I took him to task for describing Islamic terrorism as “radical Islamic terrorism”, referencing a presentation by Admiral (retired) James “Ace” Lyons, Jr. wherein Lyons said: “It was Erdogan when he was Prime Minister of Turkey who said it best. Islam is Islam; there are no modifiers. Democracy is the train we ride to our ultimate objective, which is to make Islam dominant throughout the world. He couldn’t have said it any plainer. Islam is a totalitarian ideology bent on world domination, masquerading as a religion”. He further elaborated, "I have got to tell you I reject the term ‘radical Islam’, implying there is some moderate Islam. There ain’t any and you all know it.”, thus dismissing the convention by many to add the adjective “radical” to Islam. I don’t get the sense that Lemieux understands this.

Liza, I should have qualified my statement, that I will only vote for a separation party. But unlike the Bloc, I don’t think western separation should have a federal fringe.
commented 2017-01-04 17:02:47 -0500
Liza.. One should always vote even if it’s just voting for the lesser of two evils until a true champion of the people comes along.
commented 2017-01-04 16:21:22 -0500
Bill, we were told that Trump would bring us to war. It has always been Democrats that bring us into needless war. I also see Paul Ryan, that POS, is throwing lobs at Juliann Assange. And the Washington Post had two fake news stories on Russian hacking.
commented 2017-01-04 15:30:20 -0500
It is mainly the chickenhawks McCain and Graham. They so badly want to oust Assad that they will enable Obama in the false Russian hack narrative.

Don’t take my word for it you could always send Brad an email asking a few questions and he will reply but Vote for whoever you want Lawrence.. Its still a free country.
commented 2017-01-04 15:09:24 -0500
No Lawrence… She says she wants to keep part of the CBC for critical programming in French and English and those are the facts..

“This is why I will no longer vote for a federal party, because there is no one on the ballot that will be able to work with a Donald Trump until they denounce all their globalists interests.”
Kevin I can certainly understand the sentiment, but how does not voting help anything. Not voting is an ignored opinion isn’t it?
commented 2017-01-04 14:00:34 -0500
Trumps policies alone can bankrupt Canada, if Trudeau doesn’t change and or adapt. As long as our leaders hold on to the globalist narrative, we will suffer an economic meltdown. The mainstream media and their fake news exposure, and more and more Canadians will watch as Americans prosper, this will create a ground swell against the left in this country.

We are reaching a tipping point already due to piss poor management, wait and see as we watch more companies move south. Trump will also be, indirectly draining our swamp, only he will be taking our best and brightest. No innovator in industry will stay in Canada, when the grass will be ’greener ’ across the border.

This is why I will no longer vote for a federal party, because there is no one on the ballot that will be able to work with a Donald Trump until they denounce all their globalists interests.

War costs a lot of money. Putin will only go so far with Obama’s game as he knows that President Elect Trump is not a present threat. He’s calling Obama’s bluff and Obama is taking one last crack at being the leader of the biggest Super Power. Too bad Obama didn’t put this kind of effort into defeating ISIS. Have been listening to an Israeli expert regarding what’s going on in the Middle East. According to this source, ISIS could be destroyed within ! week. Countries involved have been using it to carry out their own agenda, and that’s why it’s still going strong. I often wondered why it couldn’t be defeated especially when the US had the capacity to do so. Corruption from world leaders is extreme.
commented 2017-01-04 13:30:23 -0500
Maybe Obama is just so desperate to have some ‘meat’ in the legacy of his last year especially, that he is prepared to stretch all the boundaries. If Obama is choreographing an event in order to remain until it’s settled down, he is even more diabolical than I previously thought. A veritable mad man.
And ‘they’ say Trump is the loose cannon!
commented 2017-01-04 13:19:42 -0500
Roger,
How do we choreograph a tax revolt ?
How is Trump going to stop Justin? (aside from making life difficult in which case I have my doubts Justin cares about Canada anyway )
commented 2017-01-04 12:55:37 -0500
The liberals in our midst see their grasp on us slipping so something will happen soon, perhaps a false flag op that they can blame on the Russians, they only have so much time left to create the chaos they need to seize complete power.

If you are French, you now have no choice what happens to your body when you die, they just passed a law to make it legal to force all citizens to be organ donors.
commented 2017-01-04 12:47:34 -0500
Also, Trump will not allow the little trudeau to bring a million Muslims into Canada.
commented 2017-01-04 12:44:15 -0500
Obammer legally can’t make any real move without Congressional approval, the US Military hates Obummer and his ilk so a stale mate is what you would see.

Liza, a tax revolt is the only option that would give Canadians any teeth, and the only move that could be taken before the liberals can enact their plans.
commented 2017-01-04 12:30:47 -0500
Obama really is crazed! My God I hope Putin is able to be patient. That is terrifying info, Bill.
commented 2017-01-04 12:28:43 -0500
You are right Mette. Lets keep the pressure up, keep talking and posting, and make it a conversation which can be discussed. Lemieux said we should be able to have the discussion about abortion the left has told us is ‘closed’ , so why not Islam. Time for then to be honest about Islam.
commented 2017-01-04 12:26:02 -0500
I see the demented bastard has moved US troops onto the Russian border today – we are closer to war than any time since the Cuban crisis – all of it over this megalomanic Obama/Soros junta, wanting to burn down what they can’t control any longer.

If we last the next 17 days to inauguration, Obama and Soros both need to be indicted for treasonous activities and war crimes.
commented 2017-01-04 12:18:54 -0500
I have been outright asking those running in the leadership race about their stance on immigration/refugees. I have not been impressed with answers that I have received. If you push for more info., on anything related to Islam or Muslim immigration, there is a frustrating silence. Which seems to me to be indicative of a big issue we already have, and that would be “Politically Correct Silence.” Another win for the “Peaceful religion”. We are already at the point where our politicians are not free to openly discuss these issues due to the repercussions of doing so.This could also include attacks from the Media as well as from their own party. Lemieux has been the only one to even take it this far. He at least will call it Radical Islamic Terrorism. He has stated that we need to use “military to aid” in addressing this issue, which is a very good idea, and also what the US is doing through Generals Mattis and Flynn. He also understands that we need a better solution to be able to identify potential threats when taking refugees/immigrants from “high risk areas”. I understand, we are all frustrated with this kind of immigration in the first place, and not just because of terrorism but the threat to our overall culture and laws, with the threat of Sharia Law. We will still have to put pressure on our politicians to hear what we’re saying. He is so far the best candidate and he will be getting my vote.
commented 2017-01-04 12:09:37 -0500
I am concerned that there really isn’t any candidate who is dead serious and truly understands that bringing more Islam into Canada is going to destroy it. For what? A few more votes? We have been told we need more immigrants to man jobs, pay taxes and keep our population numbers up. What is is in fact is a lie flown in on the wings of PC Marxist agenda. A guilt trip perpetuated to satisfy their greed for more power.
Bullsht. What they are pushiing on us lie.
What are our unemployment numbers in this country?
Why can’t we train Canadians to fill high tech jobs?
Why can’t our youth get off the couch and fill the low end jobs?
Why don’t we encourage kids to grow up and have kids of their own?
Why, if indeed we did need to ‘plump’ up our immigration numbers, do we do it with mostly Islamic malcontents?
Why do politicians think we should believe a word they say or all that they ignore about Islam? We have empirical proof of what happens to countries who import mass Islam. We have eyes in our heads and can see the destruction of many European countries.
How are so many people being hoodwinked?

I want the guy or gal who is really going to take immigration seriously, and stop importing Islam into Canada. I don’t want it ‘slowed’ or ‘managed’. I want it stopped.
Tall order I know but if we don’t start acting like it matters they will continue on their merry way and change the face of Canada irrevocably.
commented 2017-01-04 12:09:13 -0500
Roger I think you are right about Putin and Obama.
commented 2017-01-04 12:08:20 -0500
How do we do that in time Roger?
commented 2017-01-04 11:57:53 -0500
Also, there is no politician in the political landscape at the moment that will right our ship, so stop looking for one. We have to rethink the way our Government is run as a whole, we have to stop trying to change the players and change the game.
commented 2017-01-04 11:57:30 -0500
Leviticus, you seem to have a beef with Kellie , my e mail stated exactly what i posted and she did not say she would keep parts of the CBC , she wants to get rid of it , as for you bashing kellie at least stick to the facts and as for brad trost i already told you if i could find his total platform and it is the same as Kellie’s i would support brad trost, all i know is i do not want to be ruled by another frenchman or another pm from Quebec , we in the west do not have a say in who gets elected after ontario and quebec vote , especially when the maritimes vote liberal and swallowed turdo’s bs hook line and sinker , me if i had my way the west would separate and tell ontario and points east to go to hell , i am all for western separation , I’ll ask you again where and what is brad trost platform ,i can not find it .
commented 2017-01-04 11:55:18 -0500
After speaking with a reputable source, I have been advised of Kellie Leitch’s real values. She has, herself denied that she would be specifically screening Muslims. What she is going to do is screen for her version of “Canadian Values” one of those being Tolerance. Makes me cringe everytime I hear the word. Kellie would like more Tolerance for LGBT values, and those are the values that she will be screening for. Questions like “Do you agree with same-sex marriage?” I would not be allowed into the country if I answered truthfully! No questionnaire is going to save us from having our safety jeopardized, or our culture ruined. Anyone could chose to answer with what they think immigration would “like” to hear!
commented 2017-01-04 11:54:33 -0500
Believe me when I tell you there would be no war between Russia and any Western Country, that would not suit anyone involved. Putin maybe a lot of bad things but stupid ain’t one of them, if the Obummer ever did anything to piss him off that much he would come straight at him real personal like.
commented 2017-01-04 11:44:40 -0500
If Kellie stands by everything she is saying and successfully makes them happen without a re configuring of the true premise of each point, we would be well on our way to being back on the right path. My only real bugaboo with Kellie is that she didn’t vote on bill c-16, but as has been reported, supports it. She is a gay woman, but I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt that her ‘preferences’ wouldn’t become my problem. I am not convinced she can do that. I would rather not know the sexual preferences of my politicians, and they make it my problem when they go public. However I don’t think she is a crazy,nasty witch like Wynne has proven herself to be.
commented 2017-01-04 11:44:17 -0500
Hey Lawrence… I have an email from Kelly Leach saying that she would like to get rid of the CBC “except for critical programming in French and English…” so like with most politicians Kelly and the CBC, she will have a relationship with it as she won’t completely demolish it and save it for a purpose that serves her. I know that she won’t completely demolish the CBC because I have an email from her that says so.
Kelly is the status quo politician who supports fringe groups and we’ve had enough of that and will certainly bring her personal agenda along with her.
Kelly Leach is a slow-motion Kathleen Wynne and more progressive liberal than conservative.
Brad Trost is an ordinary guy off the prairie with mainstream family values and his concerns about Canadians are genuine and mainstream Canadians being his focus. He is all about slowing the immigration process for the protection of Canadians and Canada and he doesn’t support any fringe groups that demand so much more than their voting base represents.!
And as said before with a background in geophysics he is a product of academia that does not support carbon tax and debunks the myth of “global warming and\climate change.”
commented 2017-01-04 08:14:49 -0500
Leviticus ,i tried to check out Trost’s platform ,the only thing i could find is he doesn’t agree with the climate BS , i would prefer someone from the west but are you telling me Kellie’s platform doesn’t represent our views and she also wants to get rid of turdo’s CBC , if Trost has the same platform as Kellie i would be happy to support him .please list what he stands for in a stated platform .
commented 2017-01-04 03:16:53 -0500
Lawrence O’byrne..
Please check out the candidate for the conservative leadership from Saskatchewan… His name is Brad Trost, he’s a prairie boy with all the ordinary common sense and old-fashioned morals and he is a climate change denier..
He has a degree in geophysics and doesn’t need politics to make a living.
Without going into it Kelly Leach is more liberal than conservative.
Please check out the Prairie boy from the west..!!
