Year End Reflections and Predictions with Lord Conrad Black

Faith GoldyArchive

Tonight, a Christmas season special! I sit down with Lord Conrad Black to discuss the "rightgeist" sweeping the planet: a look at the year that was, and what's to come in 2017.

From President-elect Donald J. Trump, to next steps for the fragile European Union, to relations with China and Russia, as well as the end to the Trudeau honeymoon...

No geopolitical stone is left unturned.

So curl up with the family and a cup of mulled wine, and turn up the volume because this is a can't miss episode of On The Hunt!

Excellent interview with Lord Conrad, but I think he underestimates the Islam threat. Lord Conrad still thinks we are in 3rd Generation Warfare in which nation states battle each other, and evil dictators use the power of the state army to crush their opponents. I’m afraid the world has moved on to 4th Generation Warfare in which small players who are not necessarily backed by any state, like terrorists, can wreak havoc anywhere.

Lots of great geopolitical insights here, unfortunately Conrad is completely out to lunch on the islamic problem. It’s to be expected though. How much do you think a man like “lord” Black interacts with the migrant hordes in his social circles? Zero. He doesn’t see it, he doesn’t live it, therefore it is not a problem.
Set him up in a flat in Luton down the street from Tommy Robinson for a year and see if his opinions change. Or hell, for that matter, certain suburbs of Mississauga or Brampton. Yeah, not Conrad’s regular stomping grounds. You don’t see a whole lot of brown people in the Bridlepath.

Be aware that this gov’t has brought in 40,000 refugees since last Christmas and I understand they have 45,000 more on tap.

I usually like Conrad’s columns. I disagree with him on Merkel and the refugee problem. Although the radicals aren’t like the Wehrmacht invading Poland for example they will cause continuous trouble in the West – trouble that can’t be ignored. Also I have much less faith in Turdo’s intelligence. It’ll be fun to see Pres Trump step all over the little twerp.

I watched this the other night, I’ll just say that I’m in complete agreement with Robert Mcclelland who commented earlier.

If Canadians cared about the similarities between Socio-Fascism and Socio-Communism we could put the Liberal Party of Canada to death almost immediately. The Liberal party began it’s existence as a sell out political group that was actually against a dominion and ALL FOR joining the United States.

After a short period carving a niche for themselves within Canadian politics, distancing themselves from their original history, they came to be seen as a center left party. The Tories being center. There is no such thing as RIGHT. This is a myth of history. The reason being, is that it is a FACT that all people professing to be FAR RIGHT base their existence on Fascism. The CORE of BOTH Fascism AND Communism is SOCIALISM. Hitler and Mussolini WERE SOCIALISTS. Communism is a morph of Socialism.

What occurred in 1917 ( Anniversary approaching ) began a change in the Liberal Party of Canada. With Soviet Communist International Parties being formed in the west, they began to infiltrate ALL aspects of western education,government and military. By WW2 and the ban placed on the Communist Party of Canada, they began to join the Liberal Party. Among them being Lester Pearson, Norman Robertson, Jack Pickersgill and many many more. Pearson would appoint a rich brat that was kicked out of the Canadian Army and went to Harvard University in 1944. He became a courier for Soviet agent and Communist Party of the USA member Elizabeth Bentley. After the war he was appointed by Pearson. ALL THESE PEOPLE WERE INVESTIGATED FOR LINKS TO SOVIET SPY RINGS.

Then Pearson appointee Pierre Elliott Trudeau heads Justice. Then he becomes Prime Minister. One of his first duties was to kick Taiwan OUT of the UN and replace them with Communist China. He wanted close relations with Cuba etc.

He gives birth to Justine however after placing a CLOSE on ALL Documents revealing his role as a Communist agent for 20 years, a gaggle of Polish dock workers began the crumbling of the founding Communist state. They threw the same tactics back at the USSR they were using to infiltrate our system. It worked.

Trudeau Senior croaks. No one cares about the closed documents and Canadian media covers up several investigations even though most of the material had been destroyed and closed permanently by successive governments.

With Communism dead, Trudeau junior and Obama do their best to uphold the remaining Communist states. Trending towards a Communist form of globalism, they are now creating a conflict between Russia and the US. Russia in no longer a Communist State. They use the exact same tactics of misinformation ( False News ) to condemn Donald Trump as President. They are even willing to create a global catastrophe to bring Trump down creating from thin air a relationship between Putin and Trump. Nazi’s like George Soros are behind this. Hmmm. Did not Soros meet with Trudeau? We should be extremely concerned about this! Obama is like a little baby that did not get what he wanted for Christmas and is now throwing a temper tantrum that could result is total kaos. He is also upset that Russia is destroying his work in the Middle East to destabilize and murder all Christians.

I never thought I would ever say this, but I perceive Russia as more of an ally now than anyone on the LEFT of western political spectrum. The LEFT is still stuck in its Communist delusion and they are using globalism to enforce a combination of ultra Socialism/Communism on the world. They just got annoyed when Trump put a kink in their plan.

8 YEARS as president and in his last 30 days he starts a war with Russia ??? Think about it. Our government and media will not.

Trudeau is the Anti Trump. He doesn’t have the maturity or the smarts to keep his mouth shut. Sooner or later he will annoy President Trump. Hopefully Trump will maintain his thick skin and just ignore the boy; for the sake of his Canadian friends.

I hope Trump crushes Trudeau like a bug.
commented 2016-12-30 13:09:27 -0500
I think Junior is a full fledged climate change cult member. Butts has him completely programmed.
commented 2016-12-30 12:36:18 -0500
It may be in Trumps best interests to play along with Trudeau and treat him like a real leader.
Trumps platform is to find, produce and sell oil all over the world. If Canada, one of his main competitors wants to kill their oil industry with extra taxes and shutdowns; this means more investment and oil sales for Trump.

I don’t think one can question Black’s conservative credentials, he set up the National Post which for years went head to head with the Chretien Government. I was very grateful for that, although I do like to make fun of his title.
commented 2016-12-30 10:19:07 -0500
I agree with everyone below: Islam is a real and dangerous threat, not to be minimized; Trudeau is protecting other interests that have nothing to do with canadian values so irrational to us. Conrad Black is either out of touch or a good friend of Trudeau.
commented 2016-12-30 10:14:34 -0500
In fairness to Lord Tubby of Crossdressing, he was right that Brexit was about British sovereignty, his comments on man made global warming were good, he was correct that Junior would be out of his mind to pick a fight with Trump and he was correct stating that the Liberals will pay a price at the polls for imposing a carbon tax. I think he underestimates the threat of militant Islam and Sharia Creep. He overestimates the abilities of Junior. I think Junior will not be able to help himself from confronting Trump on the issue of man made global warming.

The consensus of comments here agree: Conrad Black is out to lunch.

Sorry, Faith, he may be your friend, but his opinions on every topic you covered were off the mark … did not reflect reality.
commented 2016-12-30 04:31:04 -0500
You sir have got it wrong.. They are attacking and Faith got it right , look at Sweden and Germany..

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 32,522 Attacks, 208,426 Killed, 291,713 Injured that we know of.

Conrad Black is very wrong about the threat of Islam. That threat is not from Jihadist attacks per se, but from Sharia creep; the gradual encroachment and eventual domination of Islamic and Sharia law over western democracies, aided by Marxist Liberal politicians, MSM, University Professors and radical environmentalists. The Islamists are biding their time, waiting until they achieve a critical mass, which will be accomplished through mass migration, higher percentage of procreation, and finally the ballot box. That is, unless we fight back.

- Since the end of the cold war the US had a choice between 2 very corrupt families who consider themselves to be American royalty. Basically the Bush & Clinton families are 2 sides of the same coin & that coin is in the pocket of the Saudis. Bush 1.0, Clinton, Bush 2.0. Obama was supposed to be “hope & change” but he was the same crap times 100. This time it was supposed to be Hillary vs Jeb. Hillary had to steal the nomination, Jeb never got much more than 3% support. Trump represents real change. He’s not in anyone’s pocket. The big money Republican donors snubbed them. His was largely a crowd funded election or out of his own pocket.

- Black is disconnected from reality when he dismisses the threat of Islam. Muslim extremists are looking long term. They already have no-go zones in Europe & they’re starting to form in North America as well. Dearborn Michigan has become one in the US, Mississauga is turning into one in Canada.

- Black is seriously overestimating Justin Trudeau. He’s a mimbo. His job is to look pretty, bring the Trudeau name, lisp his way through speeches & run around with his shirt off whenever possible. He’s a figurehead who’s main concern is using his position to play celebrity.

- The whole “Russian hacked the election” thing is a result of the Saudis owning every president since the end of the cold war up until Obama & buying into every mainstream media outlet since the 1970’s. They want Syria handed over to ISIS & now the globalists are in full panic mode because they lost the US & their evil little plans are crumbling. They now have 21 days left to provoke WW3 & seize power under emergency measures.

Harold Hoff you are right on the money , even here in Canada many crime stats have changed , not because of less offenses , but because people know reporting them will do absolutely nothing.
Different parameters but same reasoning. At least for now, same will be happening in Canada very soon.
commented 2016-12-30 00:38:45 -0500
No problem with Islam anywhere; they are just a bunch of attention getters running through the desert. They will never make it to any place important that we have to worry about.
Justin is a Rational person, he won’t cause problems for Trump.
Conrad must be learning his facts at Trudeau’s Mosque.
New Conservative Leader of Canada; Not today, thanks anyway.

conrad black is not one i put much stock in , he is a convicted criminal and his opinions are all over the map , he skirts issues and i don’t find him trust worthy although there are times i agree with him .
commented 2016-12-29 22:25:27 -0500
Oh yes, and as Herold quoted Black in saying, "“The crime rate in Germany is settling in now”? ", Germany is not “settling down”. From all I see it is, in fact, escalating.

No, I think overall Conrad Black does not have his finger on the current times.
commented 2016-12-29 22:22:24 -0500
I can’t say as I entirely agree with Conrad Black.

His assessment of the Islamic problem is naive. Sure, they are not going to “storm Capital Hill” any time soon, but they do not need to when they are infiltrating it from withing as well as other parts of US and Western society in general.

Also, he gave more credit to Trudeau than I would. I think Trudeau will cause problems for Canada with the Trump administration.
commented 2016-12-29 22:19:29 -0500
“The crime rate in Germany is settling in now”? No, in fact the non-response rate by police, and the rate of non-recording/reporting so as not to be accused of racist bias of violent crime which would formerly have been added to crime statistics is on the rise now. Mr. Black, you have been seduced just as many EU dwellers have been. The see it in front of their eyes and yet deny it exists. Perhaps because I have a lot of extended family in Germany, it is possible I am made aware of some things Mr. Black is in denial of. IMHO

Thank you for this very insightful interview.

God bless you too Faith and a very happy new year.
