NATO Secretary General admits Trump's right about military spending

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I reported on President Trump's tough talk at the NATO summit about member nations failing to spend 2% of GDP on their militaries. 

While the United States spends almost 4% of their GDP on the military, Canada lags far behind at only 1.3% of GDP. It's why Trump singled us out in his letter to NATO allies.

The media may not want to admit it, but NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg admitted Trump is right.

WATCH my video to see footage of Stoltenberg telling Trump that his calls for NATO members to increase military spending is actually working.

Face it, this is probably as good as it will ever get for Canada’s military. Our governments will continue to ignore and under-fund our armed forces because there is no great demand from our vote-rich urban centres to change things. So, instead of billions going to meaningful things like our armed forces, health care, and disease research, the funds are continually pissed away on an endless list of utterly useless/counter-productive programs by all levels of government.

Other than a bit of pro forma virtue signaling from the population and press, usually around Remembrance Day, there is simply no reason for turdo la doo or any other politician to stand up and say “I’m beefing up the CAF”. Indeed, with the anti-Yank/anti-Trump sentiment that runs through the veins of a majority of Canadians, we can expect our lithping tit to turn this into popular support for the status quo.

Cold, hard facts folks: in the last federal election 67.4 percent of the electorate cast ballots for the Liberals, NDP, Greens, or the Bloc….and none of those parties were championing more funding for our Military. And Harper had a chance to improve things, but despite a commitment to reach NATO targets, our armed forces deteriorated on his watch.

Trudeau dose not need to waste money on defense, he has us already protected, with all his Muslim friends.
