I think that Stephen Harper should retire completely from political life. No one likes an Obama, after all. It’s clear that most Canadians would rather their country completely collapse in every respect than vote for sane (if flawed) leadership.
Having said that, his presence is a nice change of pace from Butt’s mouthpiece to a man who can form sentences without the aid of cue cards:
Suddenly, Stephen Harper is turning up everywhere.
In the past couple of weeks, he’s made headlines for writing a book, telling an American audience in February he could still “easily” lead the Conservative Party and for adding his name to a full-page ad in the New York Times praising President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran.
On Monday he was in Montreal to mark Israel’s 70th birthday and Tuesday he tweeted he was pleased to be back in “la Belle Province”, adding it was great to see one-time colleagues including former Conservative MPs Denis Lebel and Christian Paradis and Conservative Sen. Leo Housakos.
Harper’s re-emergence bodes well for the Liberals’ strategy to brand the Opposition as “Harper Conservatives.”
For their part, the Conservatives seem to be saying: Bring it on.
Fulfilling a campaign promise, earlier this week Donald Trump officially withdrew the United States from the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, calling it “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” For critics of the deal who recognized its flaws and did not turn a blind eye to evidence Iran was violating the terms of the agreement, this was welcome news a long time coming. Trump fulfilled his promise, and the days of kowtowing to terror-sponsoring regimes are behind us.
Just like that, Obama’s “major” foreign policy achievement became yet another example of just how foolish Obama’s “I have a pen and a phone” approach to governing was for someone who wanted to establish a long-term legacy.
Below are the top four unilaterally implemented Obama policies Trump has successfully reversed.
Their answers were documented in a video published by Campus Reform on Saturday, which was featured on Saturday morning’s “Fox & Friends.”
President Trump pulled the US out of the Iran nuclear deal and with that former president Obama’s entire 8-year legacy has been erased in less than 15 months. The problem for Obama is that all of his accomplishments were achieved through executive actions and were easily undone with the stroke of a pen. I know Obama’s an egomaniac, so this is devastating to him, but will the rest of liberaldome finally accept that his presidency was a spectacular failure? Probably not, but it’s fun to see the meltdown.
In November of 2015, it was reported that, “The Obama administration has disclosed to Congress that this summer’s controversial nuclear arms agreement with Iran was never signed and is not legally binding, according to a new report this week. The State Department made the disclosures in a letter to Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo, a Republican, who had written the department to inquire why the agreement as submitted to Congress in July did not bear the signature of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.”
In criticizing his successor — and doing so repeatedly — Obama has abandoned the precedent set by previous presidents. He and his wife have slammed Trump a dozen times since leaving office.
Because he’s a 12-year-old girl, Obama wrote of his despair in a FaceBook post.
The people of true United States of America were betrayed by Barack Obama, who not only gave Iran hundreds of millions of dollars in cold, hard cash but turned a blind eye to the crimes the Iranian Ayatollah Khamenei allowed to happen under his brutal regime’s watch.
House lawmakers are zeroing in on a meeting that German chancellor Angela Merkel held with President Obama at a key moment as one of the FISA warrants against Trump was set to expire. Lawmakers are aware of the role of foreign governments in collaborating with U.S. intelligence agencies in the Trump investigation as recently as 2017.
The controversial “Obamaphone” program, which pays for cellphones for the poor, is rife with fraud, according to a new government report Thursday that found more than a third of enrollees may not even be qualified.
Known officially as the Lifeline Program, the phone giveaway became a symbol of government waste in the previous administration. Now a new report from the Government Accountability Office bears out those concerns.
The report, requested by Sen. Claire McCaskill, Missouri Democrat, also says the program has stashed some $9 billion in assets in private bank accounts rather than with the federal treasury, further increasing risks and depriving taxpayers of the full benefit of that money.
Somebody should tell him that he used to be important:
Barack Obama has accused Donald Trump of “rejecting the future” by pulling out of the Paris climate deal.
The former U.S. President said those nations that remained signed up to the accord would “reap the benefits in jobs and industries created.”
But he added: “This Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future.”
Mr. Obama’s administration played a key role in negotiating the deal.
Last year, President Obama assured the world that “we are living in the most peaceful, prosperous and progressive era in human history,” and that “the world has never been less violent.”
Translated, those statements meant that active foreign-policy volcanoes in China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and the Middle East would probably not blow up on what little was left of Obama’s watch.
Obama is the U.S. version of Stanley Baldwin, the suave, three-time British prime minister of the 1920s and 1930s. Baldwin’s last tenure (1935-1937) coincided with the rapid rise of aggressive German, Italian and Japanese fascism.
Susan Rice finally remembered that she unmasked intercepted messages to show that Trump and his campaign and transition team had their conversations intercepted by our intelligence agencies. Rice has not yet explained why she did this. Her role as national security adviser was to advise on policy, not to act as an investigator. Presumably, the intelligence agencies that intercepted the messages did not believe that it warranted unmasking the identity of Trump and his associates. But Susan Rice did. She is now trying to remember why she did it and what she did with the intercepts.
Why? The answer is obvious to anyone using simple logic. She did it because her boss, Obama, told her to do it. Not even Rice is dumb enough to say she unmasked Trump to advise Obama on foreign policy. But if she read the intercepts and unmasked Trump, then it is logical that she gave this information to Obama. Otherwise, why do it?
