Forget Obama: Stephen Harper is the true "leader of the free world"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

International security and stability is declining with every passing day: Christians massacred by Muslim terrorists in Kenya. Iran-backed terrorists taking over Yemen's presidential palace.

More than 25,000 new recruits joining ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

We are losing.

The world has become a more dangerous place since Barack Obama became president.

And he really doesn't care. He golfs all the time to get away from the hassle.

It's been traditional to call the U.S. president "the leader of the free world," but does Obama really deserve to hold that title?

I'd argue that, morally and rhetorically at least, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper fits that description much better.

What do you think?

Now that the federal election is out of the way, so is the fantasy on Harper being the “true leader of the the free world”. Canadian voters decided Harper’s time was up. It’s now Junior Trudeau’s turn to lead our great nation for at least the next four years while Stephen, Laureen and their cats move back to Calgary. I hope Liza Rosie got rid of her hiccups.

I have the hiccups this morning.

David I support Harper because I because I think he is doing a good job. A better job than the contenders. I have that opinion from watching what he says and does, both of which are usually the same. I have always voted conservative because I believe in the principle’s of a conservative gov. The Liberals over the past several years have been flailing badly because they have had no strong leadership. I don’t see Justin as strong leadership. He doesn’t say anything that holds much weight for me, and I doubt his conviction on anything.
commented 2015-04-06 13:01:29 -0400
David, your beliefs regarding the Ukraine are Putin propaganda. I don’t buy it . You do.
Your view on Israel as the aggressor is also not something I subscribe to. The eyes in my head tell me a different story.
Regarding the rest of your post, I can only say that fairness doesn’t enter into it.
Whether it was right or wrong, Europeans easily moved into North America and settled, and now we have to learn to live together, because there is no alternative, nobody is going anywhere.
A country with open borders is bait.
If we don’t watch the turnstile carefully, we will all be wearing burkas and going to Mosque.
If we can do something to head it off at the pass, we had better try.

Liza just a thought, when my people came here in the early 1600 there were already people here. The first nation people and the nothern people were living here with their values and cultures. If we apply the comments of this site, that people like Musilms should take on our values and culture and assimalate. Why then should we have not taken on the values and cultures of the first nation’s people instead of forcing them to be like us.
So this should but an end to the covering of the face argument. The Mennoits,Amish and ducaboors(sic) have been accepted the people that settled the the Midwest have been accepted so why not others and encourage them to retain their values and culture.

David, you are right that there is a lot of “hate liberalism so support the only other alternative” people out there, but many support Harper for his policies as well. However, supporting Harper because you hate all the alternatives is also a valid enough reason since there must a government of some colour or strip in office.

Most here do not bother questioning why Harper supports Israel because we already know and agree. They are the only liberal (small “l”) democracy in the region. In addition, they act … for the most part … morally. I, for one, do not believe most of the lies about Israel. My position is that if the criticism of Israel comes from the mouth of a Muslim (with the exception of a few) or from the mouth of a dictator, OR any supporters of either of those, then it is a criticism I seriously question, if not outright dismiss.
commented 2015-04-06 08:25:00 -0400
I entered this site knowing it was a Harper site but needed to know why any Canadians would support him. Mostly what I read is not support for the present government but a strong dislike for Liberalism.
The other thing is that " why " is not questioned. Why are we backing Israel, why are we backing the Ukraine,when we know the CIA organized the coup that removed a democratic elected government and replaced it with the people who were allied with Hitler. Why did we fight the Taliban when they were supported and trained by the CIA ,why did the USA go and murder Sadam Hussain when they trained and showed his army how to use chemicals against Iran the list is long. We just cannot say that the Musilm girls should not wear veils because Canadians don’t. There is a reason why this was brought up let us search for and find out why.
The idea that people coming here from other countries should change their ways -—we have been there ,boarding schools for the nothern children ,not allow to speak their own language, There is a reason for everything and we owe it to ourselves to search for and find the truth. The New World Order , the Illimunatia, The Rothchild’s what is all that about search and find out.
And that is all she wrote.

David, one last thing. Its a free country, and you can espouse any opinion or theory you wish, here at least. But that doesn’t necessarily mean people will agree, or even want to engage you. If I believed some of the things you do,I could not get up in the morning.
If there were a way to stop the flow of imported hate into this country, I would sure be all over that. If there were a way to export the hate that has managed to come in , I would also be all over that.
If you are an Aboriginal Canadian( ?),then you and I won’t be going anywhere. So we are going to have to find a way to be here, together.
Your WTC theories don’t fly with me(excuse the pun). So you won’t get a positive response from me on that , or some of your other politics.
I hope you find a way to be happy. Canada is a place where you can make things happen if you try. Where else is that more evident?
commented 2015-04-05 18:20:10 -0400
Oh P-L-E-A-S-E David. Take a chill pill. And move on to another story.
commented 2015-04-05 18:14:02 -0400
“As for me , I will say without any fear of contradiction that my people were here years before you or your people.as if that means anything.”
I have no idea what that means David, why don’t you tell me.
commented 2015-04-05 18:05:32 -0400
David, I didn’t call you any name what so ever in my post. I said you were hateful. A verb, not a noun.
commented 2015-04-05 17:41:36 -0400
How can one respond to Liza and Nicole ? Ezra and his crew take a news story and make a comment to start a discussion in the hope the viewers take it from there and pass on their thoughts. If my thoughts are different and other peoples thoughts are different than yours we are called names . Your responses remind me of children out in the garden calling each other names because they have not yet learned how to reason. When I stated that the WTC did not come down because aeroplanes crashed into them and that they were pulled down and not by 19 terrorists and suggested you look at a couple of videos by some of the top world engineers how did you respond , by calling names, a sign of immaturity.
As for me , I will say without any fear of contradiction that my people were here years before you or your people.as if that means anything.

Good post Liza. Except for one thing: it is doubtful he has any “friends” to tell. People who think and write like him are sadistic bullies, and are far more likely to terrify others into following their lead. They surround themselves with people like themselves, who have below average IQs and follow bad smells. Maybe that’s more dangerous than anything, because stupid people can’t think for themselves, can’t weigh the good out against the bad. They don’t even know that there are two sides to every coin, and that biting the hand that feeds you will only result in there being no handouts at all.
commented 2015-04-05 13:50:35 -0400
David, if you were born here, your parents or someone (who decided to accept our hospitality and come to Canada) , forgot to leave their hatred at the door. People who bring their hatred from the country they are fleeing are not welcome. If you are an immigrant, then I wish you had never come. If you were born here, I wish your parents had never come.

You have nothing to offer this country but your nasty hateful bile. You, and all the Zarnif’s out there who managed to convince us you would be good Canadian citizens, listen up. It is not your right to to act out your violence on our streets. It is not your right to protest here for your despot countries. You make it harder for those wishing to come here and live in peace. We will tighten our laws, and make sure people like you, are turned back around to take your hate back home.

Tell your friends.

Blair my son your post will be ignored because it don’t agree with the script. Most of the staff writers see nothing wrong with the CIA removing an elected government and replacing it with their own. Neither do they see anything wrong with Isreal taking extra land that do not belong to them and will shoot the owners if they so much as walk on their land. Staff writers support this and they support Mr. Harper who can see Nothing wrong with either Israel or Ukraine. But both Putin and Obama are both wrong.Blair welcome to a paid political site having one purpose to increase Mr. Harper’s votes.
commented 2015-04-04 23:47:14 -0400
Liza my suggestion is no permanent force at all. The operation(s) must be not more than a few hours then out. Clandestine also means no one knows. No one. That includes Parliament and the press as it is a matter of national security.
commented 2015-04-04 21:57:36 -0400
Blair, I go to RT and Al Jazeera, as well as many other sources to try to get some understanding of what the left is talking about. That’s one of the beauties of the internet, no shortage of stuff to sort through but its still not easy to process it all to make informed opinions. But here is my small bit of understanding.
I’m pretty sure the Russian people are being duped by Putin. He keeps everything pretty well buckled down. I don’t believe that the election was fair. I don’t believe the majority of Ukranians want to be a part of the motherland,and that they want to be a part of Europe.
They want out from under Putins heavy hand. I also believe that they are being left out to dry, since they were talked into giving up their nuclear defense by the Russians, U.S. and Britain in 94, in return for a pledge to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty and territory. What a joke. I can’t believe we ever make those sorts of deals with despots.
Putin in my opinion is a dangerous man.
commented 2015-04-04 20:47:49 -0400
Ron, I think you are right that we will hear a lot more from Obama when he leaves office. Obama in a UN capacity would be really hard to take.
You say , " I have no issue going on external clandestine raids to eliminate terrorist base camps. But that is in and out quick and often with no permanent boots on the ground. No meddling in the politics of the region."
I don’t disagree with that entirely. I don’t want to see American/Canadian boots on the ground either,except for the necessary intel. However isn’t some permanent presence necessary. Had we left some in Iraq, we wouldn’t be dealing with Iran taking our place there now?
You were holding your cards rather close to your chest, and I had the impression before that you didn’t want us to go in at all.
commented 2015-04-04 18:48:00 -0400
Lets save the Awards for Hollywood Babylon…more important than who’s ‘The Best Leader’, lets get the best leaders together, to sort out this Islamic Terrorist problem. Obama having golfed his way out of contention, the two candidates mentioned several times in this Comments section -PM Harper and PM Netanyahu – being an excellent place to start as The Best World Leaders, it’s up to We The People to act individually to bring about effective and sane change. Canada is a Representative Parliamentary Democracy – confront your representative!
Since the left are pretty much all suffering from a mental disorder – lefty liberalism – not only will they be of no help, they are working actively against what has to happen for sanity and survival to prevail!
The Two Party system in the US, the Three Party system in Canada, it’s all a crock, they’re all the same on fundamental issues. The problem is The System! The System attracts sociopaths – and worse, sheep…this is a conundrum, not a contradiction.
I own my sovereignty as a man – and have guns to back that up – and I demand sovereignty for my country…
Unlike the delusions the left suffer under, conservatives know the difference between right and wrong, it’s time to stand up and assert that!
commented 2015-04-04 18:40:09 -0400
I agree with many comments that Obama is not much good. But we have to accept he has a big following in the US as many there don’t see things the way most of us here do. And around the world Obama is idolized by many. When he leaves office I believe we won’t see the end of him. Some important role from the UN with unprecedented powers I predict.
commented 2015-04-04 18:34:44 -0400
Jason I think we will have problems here. Perhaps many terrorist attacks. I have no issue going on external clandestine raids to eliminate terrorist base camps. But that is in and out quick and often with no permanent boots on the ground. No meddling in the politics of the region. But who is going to do this? The Americans have the technology but they usually make a hash of operations. I don’t know what can be done. That is why I suggest to leave the problem to those who live there. I think the IDF can keep their borders safe.
commented 2015-04-04 18:20:33 -0400
When are you going to get the Russia-Ukraine story straight. Instead of following the propaganda fed to you by the Americans…DO SOME RESEARCH. THE US AND EUROPE FORCED OUT A DEOMCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT IN UKRAINE. Because they were sympathatic to Russia. So the US had a coup and toppeled a democratically elected government and installed their puppets. Here is something you obviously don’t know——-the puppet government installed has one Ukrainian in the top posts…the prime minister, defence, finance, state, all are not even Ukrainian citizens—-cannot even speak Ukrainian. These stories demonizing Russia are garbage. If Russia wanted to really take over Ukraine they could do it in 3 days, as they did Georgia a few years back.

“Harper does support Israel and that is why we are a blessed Nation,”

There are few people in Canada that recognize that fact, some may not even understand why you say that, and some that do understand what you mean would vehemently disagree. I, however, agree with you.
commented 2015-04-04 16:58:42 -0400
Harper does support Israel and that is why we are a blessed Nation, I am afraid Obama’s disdain for Israel is his downfall. Harper has shown he is a strong leader and I support him all the way.
commented 2015-04-04 15:05:56 -0400
I agree that Netanyahu for sure would be the leader for freedom in the midst of the hell hole middle east but on the other hand I agree with Ezra that Harper is by far more of a democratic leader for freedom than Obama in North America. And as others have stated, if Trudeau gets in there’s going to be a lot of chaos.
commented 2015-04-04 14:38:36 -0400
@ Ron
You are correct in that, but the principle remains the same. Our inaction could result in the downfall of free society, both here and abroad. Political strife aside, ISIS terrorists have basically declared war on us. If we don’t act, regardless of the borders, in which I remind you, Iran has already asked for help, we could be facing a massive destabilization in the east which will most likely wash to our shores.
commented 2015-04-04 14:33:12 -0400
EZRA If you want to increase votes for Mr. Harper believe me Canadians have had enough of name calling. If the staff writers continue this name calling they will help to defeat the man. Encourage them to grow up.
commented 2015-04-04 13:17:32 -0400
Shawn you have come up with a good candidate. Israel is the only democracy in the region. Now if the meddlers stay out and let Prime Minister Netanyahu do his job radical Mohammedans could be silenced for awhile.
commented 2015-04-04 13:09:05 -0400
I see Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu as the current leader of the free world. The survival of his country is on the line. His speeches are honest, eloquent and moving. He speaks from his soul and the soul of his people. To listen to Bibi is to hear history in the making, to glimpse courage in the face of tyranny, to find hope in the dystopian world that Obama’s madness is creating. Yes, Harper supports Israel and I am grateful for that but there can be only one leader of the free world — and that is Bibi Netanyahu.
