canada flag“Job one: Move to repeal the carbon tax”: Jason Kenney on his first acts if elected premier of Alberta

Jason Kenney is on the road in northern Alberta, campaigning for the leadership of the province’s Progressive Conservative Party. He took time out to talk with me on last night’s show, at some length.

I’m pessimistic about Alberta’s future, given the damage the NDP has already done.

Kenney agrees with me that the Notley government’s decision to “sue itself” has further undermined investor confidence at home and abroad.

He knows this because he’s spoken to these investors personally, and what they’ve told him is sobering.

Kenney’s message to people of good will in Alberta is: “Help is on the way.”

when the president does it, that means it is not illegal.More Obama Doublespeak on Iran

The Obama administration has instructed us that Obamacare’s tax is not a tax, that its policy of not enforcing immigration law is “prosecutorial discretion,” and that hundreds of American military personnel on the ground in Iraq and Syria are not “boots on the ground.” So it’s not surprising to hear from the President this week that money paid in exchange for hostages is not a “ransom”.

The administration insists that’s not what we should call the planeload of $400 million in cash that arrived in Iran at the same time as four American hostages were released in January.

Thankfully, the facts are in less dispute than the definition of the word.

julian-assange1BOOM! Wikileaks Confirms Hillary Sold Weapons To ISIS

Although Hillary Clinton has repeatedly denied that she sold weapons to the Islamic Stats while serving as Secretary of State, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange claims he has proof to the contrary. reported: In Obama’s second term, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood, and friendly to the Libyan rebels, in an effort to topple the Libyan/Gaddafi government, and then ship those arms to Syria in order to fund Al Qaeda, and topple Assad in Syria.

WikiLeaks: Assange Joking About ‘Working On’ Trump Tax Hack

allen b west motorcycleYou know it’s serious when media calls latest poll “SHOCKING”

Last week, a number of presidential polls showed Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by as many as TEN points. It was not pretty. Pundits expected a post-convention bounce of two to three points, but then they couldn’t have predicted (as no one ever can) how Trump’s comments du jour would impact the figures.

Well, you know what? Maybe not so much.

The Washington Examiner calls this latest Reuters poll “shocking” as Trump has virtually erased the majority of Clinton’s lead.

In late July, Brazilian counter-terror police arrested a cell of 12 would-be terrorists who were plotting to mount an attack against the games, as reported by CNN. Ten were reportedly arrested initially followed by two later arrests.

Police were able to catch the cell by monitoring communications on the messaging service WhatsApp. The group called itself the “Defenders of the Shariah.”

Hillary_Perfect_MemeBlack Votes Matter: Clinton Campaign Doesn’t Want Police Union Endorsement

Top officials at the biggest police union in the country are upset with Hillary Clinton, saying she snubbed them.

The leader of the National Fraternal Order of Police told The Hill that the Democrat sent a signal through her staff that she wouldn’t be seeking the union’s endorsement.

It sends a powerful message. To be honest with you, I was disappointed and shocked,” said Chuck Canterbury, the president of the National Fraternal Order of Police.

Iran_nuclear_clockIran could have an operational nuke by 2017 end

On Thursday, Aug. 4, US President Barack Obama speaking at the Pentagon said the agreement “has worked exactly the way we said it would,” and even “Israeli defense officials are behind [it]… and now recognize the efficacy of the accord” and that the Iranians “no longer have the short term breakout capacity that would allow them to develop nuclear weapons.”
Hillary Clinton declared at the Democratic Party convention which gave her the presidential nomination: “We put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program without firing a single shot.”

Both these claims may be called hyperbolic at best and drew a response from Tel Aviv.

obama is a muslimObama Credits Muslim-American Patriotism With Suppressing Terrorist Networks Here

“One of the reasons that we don’t have networks cells that are as active here as they are in certain parts of Europe is because the Muslim-American community in this country is extraordinarily patriotic and largely successful, fights in our military, and serves as our doctors and nurses.

“There are communities in which they are raising their kids with a love of country and a rejection of violence. That has to be affirmed consistently. If we screw that up, then we are going to have bigger problems.”

So Muslims do have a propensity toward violence, hmmm?

obama-middle-fingerObama Continues His Crusade against a Criminal-Justice System He Derides as Racist

*Gun control doesn’t matter when Obama wants to release prisoners guilty of gun crimes*

President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 214 federal prisoners yesterday, part of his ongoing crusade against a criminal-justice system he regularly declares racist and draconian. The White House trumpeted the fact that this was the largest one-day grant of clemency since 1900. Some of the prisoners will be released now; others will have to stay in prison a while longer for more drug rehabilitation.

Many of the commuttees possessed stolen firearms or firearms with their serial numbers obliterated. Some were in violation of National Firearms Registration, which can mean possession of a federally prohibited weapon, such as a machine gun, silencer, or sawed-off shotgun. We don’t know how many guns the offenders actually had; a commuttee during a previous batch of commutations had 40.

hillary-for-prison-2016Watch how many times Clinton is applauded at a ‘press conference’ in D.C.

A journalism convention this week featuring Hillary Clinton included nearly a dozen instances of attendees clapping and cheering the Democratic presidential candidate.

The applause and hollering came even as the event’s organizers and the Clinton campaign characterized her appearance at the convention as a “press conference.”

Clinton spoke Friday afternoon at the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists convention in downtown Washington, D.C. Her prepared remarks, and her answers during a Q&A session that followed, received a warm welcome from an audience comprised mostly of African-American and Hispanic journalists

    Obama: “….the Muslim-American community in this country is extraordinarily patriotic and largely successful, fights in our military, and serves as our doctors and nurses.”

    The Glasgow airport bombing in 2007 was carried out by hospital doctor Bilal Abdullah, currently serving a life sentence, and engineering postgrad Kafeel Ahmed, who drove the burning Jeep died in hospital. Kafeel’s brother Sabeel Ahmed, also a hospital doctor, was sentenced to 18 months for withholding information and was deported to India. He’s now accused by Indian authorities of being an LeT member who recruits jihadists while resident in Saudi Arabia.

    Obviously these were all unsuccessful people compared with mahometans in America, and so turned to terrorism.

    Forget all that unimportant world news. The Toronto Sunday Star is excited this morning that they have more pictures of Trudeau topless. Yes, photos of him bare chested at a beach in B.C. And the CBC is excited about it too. So,forget that Canada’s economy is going down the toilet, we have Justin to worship.

    “Under oath Hillary Clinton denied she knew about the weapons shipments during public testimony in early 2013 after the Benghazi terrorist attack.”

    That’s it? That’s Wikileaks big reveal, that Clinton has lied under oath?

    More than 10,000 asylum seekers are missing in Britain, according to the UK’s top ranking immigration official.
    And three times as many failed asylum seekers are still here more than two years after all appeals against their removal were exhausted.
    When they know they won’t qualify for a grant of asylum, they disappear.

    I applaud Kenney’s Sisyphean effort, but I doubt if Alberta or Canada can wait for two and a half years. Notley’s wrecking ball is swinging away at warp speed. What scares the hell out of me is Wynne’s efforts to destroy Ontario’s mining industry. She is due to visit Northern Ontario this week to allay fears. I have already dumped my shares in the best gold mine that Canada has seen in decades. I took my profits and ran.

    • People will be running from Ontario soon enough.

        As Churchill walked through the lonely prewar years with minimal support and prospects, I don’t think his main efforts involved telling
        everyone to hang in for two and a half more years. As Mark Steyn
        advises, real politics consists of getting organized to the point where
        it is not a question of waiting for an election to elect the right person to do the right thing, it is making the wrong person presently in power do the right thing.

    Jason Kenney’s presence will only ensure another NDP victory in Alberta. Brian Jean deserves our support.
