Harper on national security — unplugged from the media party filter

After Prime Minister Stephen Harper called the 42nd general election on Sunday he headed straight to Montreal.

    Now doesn’t Harper make a whole lot more sense when he speaks clearly about taking concrete action to protect Canada from jihad terrorism and not backing down on Israel support. I understand Harper better than trying to make sense of JT still searching for “root causes” or “no votes for security” Muckyhair.

    • Sounds a lot better than Mulchair or Junior.

      • DVult

        Listening to Justin makes me want to barf. Why would anyone want to replace Harper with one of these two idiots? Justin is all hair and smirk while we know that the NDP will totally destroy everything they touch especially the economy. Neither one has the slightest clue about foreign policy and the dumbass liberals will probably try to import 10 million puslums.

      • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

        What about the fraud that Harper’s team are facing in courts ,he is a government victim of the media to you?

        • FactsWillOut

          He got rid of the wheat board, and killed a bunch of gun laws.

          • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

            He even almost erased the food inspectors too ,whenever we go to the stores you never know if you are buying poison on foods ,etc.

          • FactsWillOut

            If it weren’t for Harper, the food would be poison, right?

          • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

            He is cutting important basic departments , that are needed in a case of emergency,example the coast guard.

          • El Martyachi

            Ya and we’re still not spending 2% of GDP on defense as per NATO guidelines. There’s a million things the CPC does badly, sure. But to use your coast guard example.. NDP and/or Libs would turn it into this.

            you are a cunt

            Actually this is yet another area of provincial jurisdiction, so it is only right that the feds start withdrawing from it.

          • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

            I worked for the navy ships before and the federal inspectors will come every month,to inspected not provincial inspectors .

          • Alain

            My comment was in reply to your statement about buying food in stores. That kind of inspection is provincial jurisdiction. The navy is federal and thus falls under federal jurisdiction. I see where the confusion is, since a reply to a specific comment is not attached to the same comment. I find this annoying.

          • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

            I got it this time, I called them in Toronto one time , I went to a big store with expired products and they were federal inspectors that answered me that time.

      Unless he lets us defend ourselves, it’s all just hot air.

      • Linda1000

        True, but you know he’s not going to be that “radical” in the next four years. Why did you say earlier he’ll leave in 2017? Actually, I don’t see anything good coming for Canada after this last term for Harper. I think he’ll retire in four years but maybe he’ll return to AB and fix up this province. 🙂

      • You’re struck with bad choices versus worse choices.

        That’s modern elections for you.

    Oh, oh, Michael Coren is getting upset that people are picking on his buddy Trudeau. It seems Coren is becoming a regular contributor to the Toronto Star. In the opinion section he rants about evil pro-lifers today and how Justin has the right approach in regards to abortion. And of course more sex education in schools is the answer.

    • Here it is: http://www.thestar.com/opinion/commentary/2015/08/03/anti-abortion-campaign-sets-a-new-low-in-politics.html

      He gives me the creeps. I honestly don’t think he’s ever believed in anything in his life. I doubt he believes in God, any of it, any of the things he talks and writes about.

      I never liked him. Not that I’ve seen or read tonnes of his stuff – I was never a devoted follower or anything – enough to realize that he was intelligent, but not someone I’d warm to. (And fair enough. Nobody finds everyone charming.)

      I think this was my first introduction to him. http://www.russ-campbell.net/2009/04/michael-coren-little-girl-dressed-as.html It left a bad taste in my mouth. I have no particular devotion to the practice of putting women in the front line (it’s not an issue that interests me), but metaphorically pissing on and degrading someone who’d just died serving in uniform struck me as very ugly, and still does.

      I wonder if he’d distance himself from that piece now that he’s playing the thoughtful lefty.

      • You know what’s scaring the Libs about that ad? It has done serious damage to Hairboy.

        • Any party that would run that idiot deserves anything it gets.

          I know Trudeau Sr. is not exactly popular with conservatives, but no one ever actually called him stupid, did they? Like, duh, stoopid!?

          Justin is palpably thick. He is not qualified to be a substitute drama teacher. Or a prime minister. I sort of can’t take the whole thing seriously. He really is a hairdo.

          • He is proving a disaster. unfortunately a disaster that makes even Mulchair look good, which may cost the CPC some potential small Lib swing votes.

        “He gives me the creeps. I honestly don’t think he’s ever believed in anything in his life.”

        That pretty well sums up my feelings toward him as well. I make an effort not to read anything by him now (I’m actually pretending he doesn’t exist!) because he makes me rather uncomfortable. Not, I think, because he went from conservative to liberal (seemingly) – big deal, he could have had an honest change of heart/viewpoint. But I’m uncomfortable because I sort of am led to conclude, by his consistently flippant, slightly condescending attitude toward others, that he is a fake, and wears whatever mask he thinks will benefit him in his task of the moment. Either that, or he has serious mental “issues”. In either case, not someone that I would care to know, personally.

        Hmm, I ran on rather longer than I had intended there. Pardon me, but I guess that this also suggests that despite what I wrote in the preceding paragraph, I find him a bit of a puzzle – and an unsettling one at that. I don’t really think I understand what motivates him; perhaps it’s just as well I don’t.

        • I agree with you. I can’t add anything.

          • El Martyachi

            But his hair though. It really is good hair, no kidding.

            Oh.. you’re taking about Coren and not Trudeau. Nevermind…

          • He’s no Julie Hagerty.

            Little girl voice: “Will this work, Ted?” Bah – what a showoff!

            And having hair that thick is not necessarily a positive. I used to have a friend who had hair down to her butt (she used to say that her hair walked into a room before her). She also used to complain that it took forever to dry and weighed so much it hurt her scalp sometimes.

          • jayme

            He (Coren that is) always seemed rather sensitive about his alopecia, poor guy.

          • No, no. I called Trudeau a “hairdo”.

        • Alain

          If it is any help I recall him admitting that his own sister does not speak to him. At the time it made me wonder, but now I have a pretty good guess as to the reason.

        • El Martyachi

          He’s a true professional.

    • DVult

      Has he become an atheist also?

  • andycanuck

    Ha. Ha. My CPC candidate had canvasser handing out literature door-to-door this afternoon. I don’t even know if the Grits have chosen a candidate for the riding yet. 🙂

    If he cared about us, he’d let us carry guns.

    Our security will be greatly enhanced at home when all immigration from Muslim lands is ended.

    Sometimes people have to make a choice for the lesser of the evils and Stephen Harper is by and for the best choice available.

    • Yes, it is one of those times.

      However, if you are a real progressive you need to stand on principle and vote Green. Only Green is pure.

    I’m not the type of Canadian you are used to. I don’t say ‘I’m Sorry’ every hour of every day.

    I don’t live in an igloo.

    I don’t support the massive invasion and colonization of my land.

    I don’t support Multiculturalism, which is really a method of culture destruction of my Culture.

    I don’t support Diversity, which is really just population replacement, replacing my people in our land.

    I don’t support Gun Control. At all.

    I don’t support Leftist politics. At all.

    I’m a type of Canadian you’ve never met before, never knew existed, but one you will meet a lot in the future.

    I’m a soldier in waiting, a warrior in stasis.

    I’m my ancestors, fast-forwarded 100 years in the future.

    The Maple Leaf is mine to keep, not yours to give away.

    I Will Take Back My Country and My Land.

    Your Blood Will Nourish Our Leaf Of Liberty.

    • They are not progressive. I don’t care if they want to be called “Sons of the Soil”. They are regressive leftists and they and their parties should disappear after the October election.

    • Doug Kursk

      I don’t think that they have any idea just how much progressive parasites are loathed by the average, fed up Canadian.The fight is coming, rest assured.

      The world needs more of us.


      You are not alone.

    That video is greater than words.

    Mulcair and Trudeau could each fuck up a two car parade.

    Harper is the obvious choice to lead this country.

    Choose the lesser weevil.

    • That’s what Jack Aubrey said.

      • Brett_McS

        Yes. Somehow it seems appropriate.

        • My motto is: what would Stephen Maturin do?

          It’s not infallible, but it’s not bad.

      I love a good bad pun.
