Faith GoldyArchive

Kevin O'Leary has now dropped out of the race to lead the Conservative Party of Canada. I explain why this is great news:

Why doesn’t a 3 province alliance start up and make a new country. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba could pull the pin and make every westerner have a vote to count. Quebec runs this country and the west feeds it. Time for some change, we are always eating the crap and leavings of eastern Canada. That means it truly does not work for the west. I hope to see a new western separatist party take hold soon. It isn’t working for us.

We Cannot afford a Next time!
If there has to be another 4 years’ of the crook Trudeau and his George Soros Mafia Globalists’ there is no life for me and my family to look forward to in Canada!
We may as well start looking to move to America!
At least Trump won’t allow as many Middle Eastern Refugees in the neighborhood, that one will have to worry for the safety of their families!

Glenn Craig,

It must suck to on board a sinking ship.

@Jack Carter…no Jack…and neither did you.

ron joseph,

Ya, that’s not happening. Maybe if Canada was more like Texas, but unfortunately for you – Canada is a primarily a liberal country.

Great posts,Liza, Jamie and Lloyd. We have to continue supporting Ezra so that The Rebel will become too big for the Gov’t to shut down. Maybe someday The Rebel TV Network to work in conjunction with this form.

Great comment, LISA ROSIE.

You said, “Stand up to the lies and slander, you must counter it” and then you said “Grow a thicker skin”.

I’d like to spell out something that I know is implied by what you said…and I’m sure you would agree: Discriminate – don’t waste your time and energies on the little putzes that infest these blogs and forums. Stop rising to their childish and blatantly obvious provocations.

Years ago these little zits would have been pulling their pudds 24/7 in their childhood bedrooms with shoplifted skin-mags until they died of old age or chronic chicken-choking. Then along came the internet. And now YOU GUYS become their interactive centerfold – every response just increases their jollies.

In my own little way , I’ve been doing some of these things

In addition we have to grow a thicker skin and learn how to not let the personal attacks wobble us, when we speak our minds;and most importantly we have to counter attack. If we are not racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, or white supremacist’s those labels cannot stick. Stand up to the lies and slander, you must counter it. Build up the Rebel and support them and any other media willing to report the truth, we need a strong counter culture to the cbc. Grow a thicker skin. Take your thoughts to the streets, coffee shops and over the garden fence conversations, and comment sections in your local newspaper’s. Fly a flag, slap an appropriate bumper sticker on your car, wear Rebel hats,( I think we need a few Rebel.media billboards, say on the trans Canada HWY. not just in city centres) anything and everything, including of course getting hold of appropriate MP’s and government agencies. Stop funding Universities (another one for the new PM) and if you can muster the time, dedication courage and fortitude, run for your school board office, and municipal leaderships. The bottom level is the dirtiest and is simply rotten and festering with Socialist/Communist/Totalitarian/Marxist/Post Modernist/Globalist vermin. The municipal level of our government is an easy target for the leftist foreign interference, look to Peel Region as an example, or any town in Canada, they are almost all corrupt. Make sure you vote municipally so you don’t end up with Mayors like Nenshi, LotusLand Gregor Robertson, or John Tory. Conservatives need to step out of their comfort zone. Put your game face on.

I suppose you are right Ron Joseph. Agreed Jack Pallance.
Somebody has got to do something about the CBC, and it has to happen fast. No long drawn out plans which we all know will be hijacked.
“Conservative leadership candidate Maxime Bernier announced his policy proposals for the CBC today, laying out his plans to streamline the public broadcaster to put more focus on local and public affairs programming, to make the CBC advertising-free and to transition it toward a funding model similar to that of PBS and NPR in the United States.”

So Maxime if you get in , MAKE IT HAPPEN!

I agree, the populace is so dumbed down in Canada, we will have a terrible time shaking off the shiny pony. Canada has no conservative think groups, not a single conservative tv station, or newspaper or magazine. And Canadians trust their media, which is dangerous when the deep state has its own propaganda machine – the CBC.

Glad fake conservative O’Leary is gone.
commented 2017-04-27 11:52:29 -0400
We should all have Jamie MacMaster’s attitude. There is a Frenchman with Alberta views who will likely be the next Conservative leader. Good data shows 43 seats in Quebec, while if the Atlantic Provinces split their 30 seats 3 ways, Bernier starts the 2019 election in Ontario with 53 seats. Thats a good start at dethroning Trudeau. We should be happy.
Brad Trost could be Canada’s future; he has everything going for him. If he continues to improve his French, Quebec will accept him like they did Harper. Trost in 2023.

Liza; I guess that’s why we don’t put our hope in men. That said, fight on.
commented 2017-04-27 10:35:56 -0400
Liza said, "I am disheartened. Who has the fortitude if Trump hasn’t. "

Yes, your comment was more despondent that the usual defiance I read, but I fully empathize. It seems overwhelming, like seeing a huge tsunami about to overtake you and you cannot move your feet to run, and running would be pointless anyway.

Sorry, I did not mean to add to your despondency, just to empathize with you.
commented 2017-04-27 10:33:56 -0400
O’Leary would have been a willing puppet because he has no real loyalty to his country, but Chong would be the most willing to whore himself out. Even if the most honest defender of the Constitution were elected, he would have a fight on his hands I just don’t know how to win anymore. We are already been infiltrated and corrupted.
commented 2017-04-27 10:27:21 -0400
I am afraid since Trump has been elected by the people and commandeered by the deep state, I have zero hope anyone will do what they are voted in to do. You put all your trust in a politician and then they dissipate before your very eyes. Does it even matter who gets in anymore? We have it in Canadq as well. Why and who do you think eviscerated Harper and got Trudeau in. Regardless of who we vote in as leader of the party there will be a systematic take down unless we figure out what to do about the propaganda machine, media, educators and foreign interference.
I am disheartened. Who has the fortitude if Trump hasn’t.
commented 2017-04-27 10:07:00 -0400
I am glad O’Leary is out of the race.

There are enough “red tories” in the various provincial and federal Conservative parties without having an actual left wing candidate running for the leadership of the Conservatives.

Of course, to some socialist trolls the red tories are the only real Conservatives. To them the true blue Conservatives of a only a few decades ago are considered “extremist” or “radical extremist” Conservatives.

Socialists love to pull the Conservative party to the political left.

Goodby, O’Leary.

Brad Trost is the best candidate as far as I am concerned.
commented 2017-04-27 09:26:00 -0400
May I suggest that everyone simply ignore the trolls. It is best not to give them the satisfaction of a response. By engaging with these people you are allowing them to continue to waste everyone’s time, and to get people fired up, which of course is the whole point.

This is great news that O’Leary has dropped out, for a number of reasons. It will be interesting to see what transpires from here on…..
commented 2017-04-27 09:25:16 -0400
Well, if Bernier can stick to his guns, I’ll support hm. In an interview this week with Ontario Farmer, he said he is in favour of enshrined property rights in the Constitution, and that he has a plan for that.
commented 2017-04-27 07:54:04 -0400
Jamie MacMaster,

I am God.
commented 2017-04-27 06:57:11 -0400
Dont know who this Jack Carter is, but for some reason, people sure spend a lot of time on him.
commented 2017-04-27 02:53:08 -0400
O’Leary should of known he wasn’t going to do well in Quebec, I did. He doesn’t speak French so he had no chance of lifting his popularity numbers in Quebec. And Quebec voters are only going to support a Quebec politician, that’s why we end up with so many Quebec PMs, Quebec always seems to determine who gets in. O’Leary would be unable to defeat Trudeau anyway, he has no debate skills and that is certainly one motivation for him calling it quits now before the Wednesday Toronto Debate took place. O’Leary only concentrated on economic related issues and he wasn’t very good with those either, he mirrored the Liberal agenda with everything else. Glad he’s out of it he should never have been in, conceited, wind bag.

If you cannot take kebec you cannot win Canada.

Kebek rules Canada directly AND indirectly.

Canada kowtows to kebec on a daily basis and sends them billions while the west starves.

And that is why I detest most Frenchmen – to the point I will not even allow them in my house or on the property.
commented 2017-04-27 02:01:14 -0400

I am not wrong about anything. O’Leary directly said that he can’t beat Trudeau because of Quebec.
commented 2017-04-27 01:20:57 -0400
The real reason O’Leary quit was his highly sophisticated data told him that Quebec would only give him 12 seats, while Bernier will get 37 seats. So give Bernier half of O’leary’s seats and Bernier starts the election in the Atlantic Provinces with 43 seats while Brad Trost starts the election with 0 seats.
Everyone on this comment page is wrong, including Jack Carter.

liza Rosie,

That’s because The Rebel pays me to keep things exciting here and not just a bubble where everyone agrees like sheep.
commented 2017-04-27 00:58:54 -0400
Glenn Craig,

So you voted for Trudeau in the last election then?

commented 2017-04-27 00:52:42 -0400
All in for Brad Trost.!!
