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?

We have more oil than they do, here in North America, however we have more “internal” subversives ie: Environmental Extremists – believing that their mis-directed agenda will save this world; than they do in the east. The Lieberal brain-wash done on North America concerning “climate change” and “security” has been so completely taken over the common sense of the masses – that it has allowed for the politically correct to dictate to us the “tolerance” of complete & utter stupidity and insanity toward the direction of Barbarism & tyranny of our once great nation(s).
Only an intense revolution (internally) is going to change this direction! People need to wake the hell up and start reasoning out to just exactly what forces are at play here.
“The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the
endurance of those whom they oppress".

Regarding Africa Canada has an abysmal record over there. From Diefenbaker to the present one goof up after the other. Leave Africa to the Africans.

Jason regarding Hitler. When war was declared thens of thousands of young men from Canada to Rhodesia inmediately enlisted to save the Crown. No meddling there it was a call to arms and the response was answered. At the end of WW2 many Canadian regiments were under strength and there was resitance to serve. A shameful period in our history but that is another story. Some Mohammedans go on the rampage from time to time looking for the caliphate. Their call to arms has been answered by less than 25000 mostly misfits of society. Let us stay out of the region. Allow Israel do what is necessary when required. Like other caliphates ISIS will go the same way as the other Mohammedan armies death by internal dissention and lack of recruits. The job of the authorities here is to infiltrate local Mohammedan terror cells and destroy them.

Agree with you on this.

Good post Maurice there re Gaddafi. Thanks.

@ David Kitchen – ""And this means THEY can’t fool us like they used to."

Ahhh… “They”
This explains a lot.

The thought of Harper being the leader in the free world today has crossed my mind many times. Breaking off relations with Iran and his dealings with the UN is commendable. It is refreshing to see a government making its mark without having to resort to bashing America at every opportunity. Sadly, though, there is lots to bash in America today, chief of which is their chief. Not even Boy Trudeau is up to that one these days!
commented 2015-04-04 10:46:55 -0400
I agree! God bless our Prime Minister!

Peter my last post for now. Am taking your advice .Going to get some light reading done. Have to read the decline and fall of the Roman empire. 3 volumes 3000 pages fine print. Have to check out the theory that the Father and Son of the Christian belief is as some say a Roman emperor and his son.

Peter I keep missing you. While I am commenting so are you. It takes me longer because of a hearing problem which causes me to not know how to spell I don’t hear the constants . A recent discovery. And to think of all the beatings I took because I could’t spell.
Peter it is easier to obtain knowledge now then it used to be. And this means THEY can’t fool us like they used to. ISIS is not a threat to us if we do what the young man said in his tape before he shot the gaurd. He said leave us alone and we will leave you alone. Makes sense to me. Ah. But they got Oil .
commented 2015-04-04 10:15:10 -0400
Jesse James a crook because he robbed banks and gave the money to southern farmers. The reason , after the civil war the banks were taken over by the north and they refused to lend money to the southerns.
AL Capone sold rum during probation .John Kennedys father done the same .
One is a crook the other a great American. We all should know both sides .
just another thing ,because you believe liberals are wrong ,all revolutions are caused by Tories. Even the USA’s little fight was against Tories. In this case not poor against rich but wannabe rich against Tories.

“why are we in the middle east and not in Africa where we could offer more help ?”

ISIS. Their goal is to set up a caliphate all over the planet. They enact the belief, convert or die.

Sure, they are not here in force yet, just the occasional attack, but they will be if not stopped now.

Will you convert to their belief or the alternative?

True North what you say is true, Klein is what you say and she represents one side. Who will debunk her and her writings ? Winson Churchill wrote many books but none that offer reasons that differ from Klein. That sentence would lead you to believe that I read all he wrote. I never and maybe he never either. The thing is why are we in the middle east and not in Africa where we could offer more help ?
commented 2015-04-04 09:57:36 -0400
David, you need to expand your reading to those ideas that you hate to read, those that you despise are are against your personal beliefs. Why? Because that is the only way to get both sides of any issue so you can evaluate what is true and what is not.

Invariably the truth lies somewhere in between.
commented 2015-04-04 09:23:59 -0400
Dave, it would probably be a good idea to read some other authors too. Klein is a well known socialist, corporation hater, global warmist and all around liberal hater of anything conservative. Hardly an unbiased source of ideas. You need to grow intellectually just a tiny bit.
commented 2015-04-04 09:05:16 -0400
Just the one comment. You are commenting on world events. I recommend that you understand the reason for those evrnts. Start by reading
The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein.
Then find out why Abe Lincoln, Gaddafi,Suddam Hussine, and John Kennedy were assassinated. They were all killed for the same reason. Both of these suggestions will increase your knowledge to a point where you may know enough to write a comment.

There are one billion 170 million Muslims who want the world a peaceful place. Unfortunately their are 130 million rabid dog Muslims who want all kafurs dead or in a state of submission. Mr. Harper , regardless of his shortcomings, stands as a pillar of what is right in the world against such evil. God help us should the intellectually incapable young Trudeau ever take charge.
commented 2015-04-04 07:30:52 -0400
If we had a PM that was even close to the socialists running the provinces and cities, we would be financially FKD beyond belief. Thank goodness for Harper. And FK the MSM for all they “hate spew” they target at Harper – could you imagine Stoner trudeau running things – would be just fkg awful.

Not all snakes are bad, and I , President Obama ,am happy to announce that I have signed a deal with the moderate cobras and we never have to be worried about getting bitten again.

@ Ron Zager: “I just know that meddling in other nations affairs is wrong. History and personal experience tells me that.”
While for the most part, this is true, and I hate bringing this up, what would have happened if in WWII, the Allies had not meddled in the affairs of Germany? Would a resistance have occurred and destroyed Hitler and his war machine? Or is it more likely we’d all be living under Nazi rule? There are certain times when meddling in the affairs of another nation is necessary. I wish it wasn’t so, but it is a reality we must face. Let’s not forget, this is a war that like it or not, DOES involve us.

@ Ho Hum: We did the necessary thing to render aid at the time. No one knew exactly how that was going to play out. But it was a calculated risk, and we took it. But as you pointed out, it was Obama that led the way and opened Pandora’s Box. Had we not acted, this might have been worse. When you are the leader with so much hanging in the balance, you must explore every possible scenario and hope you are making the right choice and stick by it through thick and thin. But now the situation is what it is, and cannot be changed by dwelling on what should have been done.

The fact of the matter that we are seeming to forget, but is readily apparent, is that the world has turned into one big powder keg, and the slightest spark could potentially set it off. I know that’s a cliche, but it’s the reality of the times.

Ron Zager, I absolutely agree that Gaddafi was a monster, but he was a pragmatic monster who finally came to understand that it was in his best interest (or so he thought) to cooperate and align himself with western democracies. For totally self-serving reasons, mind you, he was still a tyrant to his own people. But if you’re going to take somebody out, you’d damn well better have someone better to replace them. Otherwise you just leave behind a vacuum. And guess who filled that vacuum?

Taking out Gaddafi left a void that was filled with something even less desirable. It was a mistake,miscalculation? Obama’s. I am not defending him, I don’t even like him. But…
You keep mentioning American interference. Who would you rather be the big rooster? Because what Obama fails to understand, and you by the sounds of it, is that someone is going to be. Who would you pick for global hauncho, bully, rooster, big shot, what ever name you want. Somebody is going to take the job. If the position is left open it will be filled. What do you think this is , everybody gets to take a turn?
commented 2015-04-04 00:56:06 -0400
Nicole is probably right about Mr Harper being the best PM ever only because there has been one dud after the other. Maurice I remember when Col Gaddafi made his famous drive from Zambia into Zimbabwe. When he came to a farm not far from Karoi he stopped the convoy at a commercial farm. He then seized it much to the admiration of Robert Gabriel Mugabe. Gaddafi was a total loon and monster. Put in by the CIA he was tolerated till he was no longer useful. I hate to say it but the problems we now face from international terrorists are a direct result of meddling and misadventure by the US and supporters. How this mess will ever be cleared up is UNKNOWN.
