Lorne Gunter: Rural Alberta will prevent Notley's re-election

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday's show, Sun columnist Lorne Gunter joined me to discuss the United Conservative Party leadership race.

Jason Kenney and Brian Jean have both moderated their views because they're afraid of what the mainstream media will say about them, even though Albertan's want a leader who will advance conservative policies.  

Rachel Notley's accidental government is bound for defeat, conservatives should be preparing policies to rectify the mess she created instead of moving in her ideological direction.

WATCH my interview to see why Lorne thinks Albertan's are even more eager for a conservative government than when they first elected Ralph Klein.

Rural Alberta mostly supported the Wildrose in the last election. It will be decided in the suburbs of the cities.

“Peter Netterville commented 15 hours ago
However, there is still one good note. The new UPC will at least be business friendly.”

Is that enough, though? All the platitudes about business friendly/unfriendly are ultimately moot, since the actual problem is that Alberta’s biggest export is worth less than half it was four years ago. That’s something beyond the reach of any govenrment to solve.

Klein was completely CINO – a liberal in conservative skins.

And what does being good for business mean? Maintaining the same PC nonsense that Google, Apple, and other businesses practice?

The UCP intends to broaden the cesspool and Notley and her Progressivist-Sodomites slopped around in.

War is coming.

Be ready.

Me Notyou said, "Given the milquetoast conservativism that will be offered, … "

It is unfortunate that the new UPC seems to be taking the CINO route.

However, there is still one good note. The new UPC will at least be business friendly. Even the PC party gone CINO (after Ralph) understood on what side their bread was buttered. The new UPC will probably have the same pro-business attitude.

There are instances where genocide is entirely justified and worthy of pursuit.

The destruction of Progressivist-Sodomites is necessary and must be accomplished.

War is coming.

Be ready.

Fildebrandt represents the true conservative-libertarian mindset that is not going to be represented in the UCP. The CINOs like Jean and Kenney will see to that.

Given the milquetoast conservativism that will be offered, many true conservatives will stay home, lest they are party to more debt and more fiscal and moral insanity. The NDP will have an excellent chance for reelection as a result.

The only effective solution to the socialist infection is war. There is war in the US that is brewing that will, thankfully, lead to the destruction of liberals and Progressivist-Sodomites.

What to defeat Notley and the NDP? Then consider yourself to be at war with them and the better off you will be.

War is coming.

Be ready.

The dirty subversive play in this UPC leadership clusterfrig, tells me the same dissolute elements which destroyed the PCs is running things in the UPC. How did they get these positions? I didn’t vote for them – WHO is running the UPC, there were no exec. elections.

Andy Neimers said “And now with the NDP/Green Party to encourage the mindset of Drugs and Welfare, stay tuned folks.”
Andy , if you look closely at some of the NDP/Green candidates , I believe they are ON that mindset.

ME NOTYOU—-Despite a small skeleton in his closet, Derek would be a great Premier: Jean and Kenney are needed , however Derek should run the show. I don’t know how, but Albertans must resurrect him into the running.

Jan G , That crazy socialist is not breaking my spirit , actually the exact opposite , she’s pissing me and a lot of other Albertans off and were getting close to breaking her spirits !! When we’re done with that witch she’s gonna wish she was at the Salem witch trials !!!!!!!!!!

Things are bad for the UCP and getting worse.

The CINOS are out in full force and they are about to give away the whole farm.

Derek Fildebrand was the best hope, but internal smear tactics in the UCP took care of him.

While far too many fat heads are making claims that a turd could beat the Notley and the NDP, think again. That’s the same thinking that Prentice had: he lost and he’s dead now, so we all know where that bad idea will get you.

Time to accept the reality that you are war with Notley and her Progressivist-Sodomite fellow travelers, and the sooner you accept that fact, they better off you will be.

War is coming.

Be ready.

Ron Joseph… And our provincial capital, here on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, is now many years into “enjoying” the spillover of the years of “druggie tolerance” from Vancouver… Any, and all, of those type of accommodations are being proposed – tent camps and all – to be ensued here in the near future… So, “Come On Down !” druggies from across Canada; because, like in the 70s,“we’re going to hug your welfare entitlement mentality asses” on the warmer shores of the Pacific"!… And with now, the NDP/Green Tango Party to encourage that mindset, just “stay tuned folks”, eh?…

Ron Joseph , I’ve watched that before but thanks for link but everything he said made perfect sense but I think most sheeple are to dumbed down to understand economics but I would have no problem being part of the USA and ditch this cesspool and all this Communist , Marxist , Socialist and Dictatorship bullshit !!

Notley is simply trying to break the spirit of Albertans.
commented 2017-09-16 19:22:22 -0400
Jamie ,Drew, Thanks for the explanation. In BC, it is different as Victoria, our Capital has never had a recession in its history; when they are short of money, they simply raise taxes on the rest of the Province, or take money that was budgeted for other Cities and Towns and spend it on themselves.
It is hard for the majority of the people to protest or revolt, as the Government is secluded on an Island with a slow and expensive Ferry Service to get there.

Jamie Macmaster my fiance works for the feds(but she actually works , so she gets passed over for advancement) , and my stepson is living off the public dole. So you got it right.

Like many other jurisdictions Alberta is divided politically, culturally, socially and ideologically along primarily rural-urban lines.

This is basically the divide between smug reliant urbanites who’s survival is dependent on conformity, subjugation to state entitlements and nepotistic instinct due to their dependency – and rural populations founded in independence, self reliance and personal self sufficiency – these two solitudes are polar opposite and irreconcilable – but the globalists have a solution – and rural dwellers won’t like it.

“Jamie MacMaster—don’t get your post. Edmonton is rich with the rest of the Provinces money. "

In other words, RON, Edmonton is a big cesspool of welfare dependence – chock full of government employees and other parasites. . Just like Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, etc.

Ron Joseph Edmonton has gone pretty far downhill, even the drivers are horrible now, miss the days of decent redneck drivers who could actually park and pay attention. That creep Mandel stopped the twinning of a heavily used road by my place to fund the new Arena , now it will be done in 2019 if we are lucky.

C’mon now RON JOSEPH. Edmonton ain’t I the east.

Yup. Nailed it. When i comes to the press, Conservative politicians are scared shitless. Consequently, they end up marching to the press drum….which is really the NDP/Liberal drum. To yellow and stupid to make the press work for them.

Mike Harris in Ontario understood how to do it, so did turdo la first, and so did Rene Levesque. But this current parade of contemptible Conservative putzes doesn’t have a clue how to do it, or for that matter, an ounce of desire to do so.

Samantha & Ron—-Yesterday another large Natural Gas investor left BC saying the environment is not correct to invest in BC. This is code for, they don’t want to deal with the NDP-Green morons.
The Interior of BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan could make it on their own, or the following alternative might be in the cards.( 4 min. video 2014 but still pertinent. )

BTW I’m a Redneck Albertan and damn proud of it !!!!!!!!’
commented 2017-09-16 13:00:07 -0400
I agree Samantha and Ron , I think it’s doable . Canadians have treated Alberta like therye personal bank accounts and with reckless abandon !! You both have made really good points . I don’t know if there enough true blue Albertans left to move forward but I am sick and tired of everyone using us for our jobs and our money ! Even Maxine Bernier said that Alberta pays too much in tranfer payments and he’s from Quebec ! I’m pissed off that everyone from other provinces can come here and steal all our work yet we would have a hard time getting work in therye shithole provinces . I often wonder how great Alberta could have been with the hundreds of billions of dollars that has been stolen from us ! I would literally give all my money to help Albertans see what our great province could accomplish without all this money sucking parasites living off our all our past and future generations hard work . It’s doable in my opinion .

I’m with both of you Rons. Do you think such a party could be elected, or are we dreamers?

If an Alberta separatist party could get off the ground with even, say, 30% support, you’d think it might scare the feds into treating Alberta with more fairness & decency (i.e. give Alberta the same leverage that Quebec has).

The problem is that a separatist party would split the vote on the right, & we know too well the disastrous outcome of that…

Ron Christensen—-I agree fully, the West should get out sooner than later. The East is one big cesspool of welfare dependence, and the Immigrants or Refugees they choose will speed up their run into Bankruptcy.

I wish there was a political party that ran on Alberta separation because that’s who I would vote for ! Anything else is just more of the same . Blah blah blah !
