Five Women Better Than Hillary

October 11th, 2016 | T. Carter

Electing the first female president seems to be the only mission for Democrats and liberals. That would have been the case even if Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz or Jeb Bush had won the Republican nomination. The latest Wikileaks releases show the Clinton campaign's plans to use sexism, misogyny and character assassination to defeat any one of her Republican opponents. Exchanges in the Podesta email leaks show that Ted Cruz and Donald Trump were the preferred candidates for the Clinton campaign because of their less mainstream views and personal pasts. The only candidate that would have successfully neutralized Hillary Clinton's sexist campaign would have been Carly Fiorina, but her chances were minimal in a male dominated field.

What's Safety-Whistle Politics?

October 1st, 2016 | R. Rados

In politics, a safety whistle is most commonly used by anti-conservatives to scare potential voters away from a particular candidate, or to draw negative attention to a candidate that they're trying to brand as a predator. As we know, the most popular trend among progressive politicos is crying foul over non-existent bigotry. To hyper-progressives, logical border controls, security and shared values are considered bigotry – not because they're actually staples of bigotry, but because racist is the most popular buzz-word of the day. Anyone who refuses to display “progressive values” is racist, bigotted, homophobic, sexist, misogynistic, disgusting, depraved, immoral and sub-human. With the aloof and absurdly clueless nature of modern progressivism, the need to call out safety-whistle politics has never been greater.

Canadian Values Are Real

October 1st, 2016 | M. Menuck

Saying that Canada is a country of tolerance, diversity, and pluralism is in and of itself a statement of core Canadian values, and to say otherwise as Justin the Boy King has done is an indulgence of moral relativism at its worst. Indeed, it is likely a view that previous liberal Prime Ministers would be left aghast by. Not the least of whom would be Pierre Trudeau himself, whose central political principle was the idea that Canada was a "just society"; the ideals of which he encompassed in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms - which in and of itself is most certainly a statement of a core set of Canadian values.

Three Things That Could Derail Trump

October 1st, 2016 | T. Carter

There are conspiracy theories circulating online about Hillary Clinton and the Washington establishment trying to influence next month's election by either staging an international incident or pinning a mass shooting on Trump supporters. With Hillary's poll numbers barely surpassing Trump's after spending six times more than Trump on ads in swing states, some have concocted grandiose theories about how Hillary will try to change her own fortunes with an October surprise. Rather than give these theories automatic credence, I'd like to examine their validity and take a more sober look at the likelihood of an international incident or mass shooting being used against Donald Trump – without the dark, conspiratorial undertones.
These are three things that could unfold over the next four weeks and be used to derail Donald Trump's presidential ambitions.
Who Replaces Peter MacKay?

October 1st, 2016 | J. Hodgson

The guy has a 3-year-old son and a 1-year-old daughter. He’s also got a hot wife and a private sector law career at Baker & McKenzie that’s likely paying him over $700,000.00 a year. He’s going to take a 80% pay cut and spend his non-work time away from home talking in curling rinks to a couple of dozen farmers at eight in the morning about how the Liberals have a moderately higher tax structure than the Conservatives are proposing? I wouldn’t do it. I don’t blame him one bit. So Peter, enjoy the sailboats and the sand castles and the backyard barbeques and leave the drudgery of shouting at Justin Trudeau in the HOC for the next three years to someone else that at least has the hunger for it. We’ll probably see you again sometime anyway.
