Stephen Harper's Canada was the last outpost, the last place where government was reasonably sane regarding the jihad threat. Now it is up to individuals to stand, no matter how much it costs them, against the forces of oppression and authoritarianism that will become increasingly aggressive, and soon. The cowardice of many will be exposed, and it will surprise those who thought they were standing tall. But the human spirit, the spirit of freedom, will never be wholly extinguished — despite the best efforts of the forces of authoritarianism and oppression.
Let's remember what he did: in 2003, he brought two parties together and formed the Conservative Party we know today. Less than three years later he would be Prime Minister, and he would go on to serve for ten years - becoming the sixth longest serving PM in Canada's history!
He lowered taxes, opened up trade markets, invested in our military, stood by Israel when precious few would, saved lives around the world, and made Canada proud. Yet through it all he faced nothing but criticism from our horrendously biased media. I am very confident that history will be much kinder to Stephen than our left wing media outlets have been.
Thank you, Stephen Harper, for your service to Canada.
Message to our ACT! For Canada members:
Our work is most needed, now more than ever. Essential is understating it. The disastrous consequences of the rise of the subversive cannot be understated, nor can the force for good in combating it.
There is nothing to be done but fight more fiercely, more passionately. Because we are right and we are righteous and we fight for the good. It's just that simple.
This is not new. We have seen this before. Every historic catastrophe was preceded by this same pattern. It is only when good people quietly accede to fascism and totalitarianism that the war is lost.
So take a breather, regroup, and fight, fight, fight. When the enemedia lies and deceives, we will be there. When the Trudeau regime tries to impose restrictions on free speech (blasphemy laws), we will be there. We will fight for our freedom. It is incumbent upon us.
Canada is still the greatest country on earth and she is worth fighting for. Ramp it up. Cede no ground. Take lessons from the left. Be a pitbull.
It is up to us. Yes, it is dark. Be the light. Shine on. This is just the beginning.
A gloating CBC credited the Obama Ground Team sent to Canada last year to ensure election victory for the Liberals in tonight's outcome. Members of Obama's election team—who revolutionized data mining for political campaigns—shared it with Trudeau, and the rest is now history. While Americans got a community organizer who began to systematically dismantle America in 2008, Canada will now be led by a part-time drama teacher who has never worked a day in his life
Canada's new made-in-USA Liberal Government
Go forward by getting ready for the world's biggest 3-ring circus of all time. Think of Obama and Trudeau selfies with whoever's coming down the pike from Mexico thrown in for good measure. During his tenure as a backbencher MP, Trudeau liked to hang out in terrorist-connected mosques and with Liberal Big Sis Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynn, under whose watch Ontario, this country's largest province and former economic engine has become the world's most indebted sub-sovereign borrower.
For years, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has served as a welcome counterpoint to Barack Obama, and the object of wistful musings about what a fine President of the United States he would have been, if only he had been born south of the border: generally realistic about the jihad threat, determined to do what was necessary to meet that threat, and a strong supporter of Israel. But now Canada at last has its own Obama: Justin Trudeau. And that means that Canada, like the United States, faces deep trouble ahead.
The Obama Machine Takes Over Canada
The destruction of Harper wasn't as bloody as the Obama/Hillary Clinton effort to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi in Libya, which resulted in the Benghazi murders of four Americans. Nevertheless, the overthrow of the Harper government had the fingerprints of Obama all over it. Another inevitable outcome of the liberal victory may be more Islamic terrorism in North America. The new Canadian prime minister has extended open arms to Muslims in Canada and more immigration from the Middle East while declaring the need to withdraw from the fight against Islamic terrorism.
Muslim Canadians Who Won in the 2015 Federal Election
Islamic Grandiose Infantile Delusions of Entitlement
Hajera Khaja wants us to be sensitive to her needs—"the other"—without a reciprocal sensitivity. She does take comfort in the fact that Zunera Ishaq is a model Canadian who won't bend to the will of bullies and be intimidated into giving up her rights. This is the woman who won the right to wear a niqab while taking the Canadian oath of citizenship. She wouldn't take the oath until she was given that right. It isn't the clothing Khaja—it's the attitude. It's the complaining that no matter what we do it isn't good enough for you. You were insulted by the server at a restaurant. And so you blame the Conservative Party. Perhaps you need to search within yourself for the roots of your problem. According to you, "we are not the bastion of an open and tolerant society." Yet, we have a law that allows for your face to be covered. And we have restaurants providing halal. Not accommodating enough? What else can Canada do for you?
It was the snitch line, not the niqab stance, that hurt Harper by Barbara Kay
I think Harper's big mistake was in taking discontent with the niqab for permission to go big on all culturally-rooted misogynist practices. His proposal for a tip line to report "barbaric cultural practices" like forced marriages to the RCMP was overkill, and struck a sour note, even amongst those Canadians – like me – who were his staunchest supporters for a face-cover ban.No policy is more likely to make entire communities feel singled out as inherently suspicious than a snitch line
A Kingdom for a Niqab by Tarek Fatah
Niqabi Zunera Ishaq, originally from Pakistan, took on the Conservative government over the niqab issue, but instead pulled the carpet out from under NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair. Mulcair's defence of her right to wear the niqab's face veil while taking the oath of citizenship shocked secular Quebecers, and was one of the reasons they abandoned the NDP in droves. Mulcair could've been Canada's first NDP prime minister. But he gave away a kingdom for a niqab, undermining his party's political fortunes in the province that was the source of its greatest political strength.
Muslim Mass Murderers Demand New Trial in Shafia Honor Killings Because of "Cultural Differences"
Shafia sisters Zainab, 19, Sahar, 17, and Geeti, 13, along with Rona Amir Mohammed, 50, were honor murdered by their father Mohammad Shafia, Tooba Mohammad Yahya and brother Hamed, 20. Rona, who was incapable of having children, was the first wife of Mohammad Shafia in their Muslim polygamous household. The victims were found murdered in June 2009 inside a Nissan Sentra that belonged to Mohammad Shafia and was submerged at the bottom of a deep canal in Kingston, in eastern Ontario.
Now the Muslim murderers who said "I would do it again 100 times" want a new trial, claiming they were victims of "cultural stereotyping" — in other words, the sharia exception. "By reinforcing pre-existing stereotypes of violent and primitive Muslims, it created the risk that the jury's verdict would be tainted by cultural prejudice."
Toronto city councillor says Muslim-only subsidized housing is acceptable
A Toronto city councillor says a provision that allows only Ahmadiyya Muslims access to a city-subsidized apartment building is not unfair.This week, about 11,000 people looking for subsidized housing were removed from the waiting list at Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace, a 14-storey apartment building on Finch Avenue West. About 100 of the 166 residential rental units are designed as rent-geared-to-income.
Harper could always be counted on to condemn rather than seek to appease terror in the Middle East, stand up for dissidents, and speak forthrightly on liberty. Trudeau, in contrast, comes from the political wing of Canada that brought Orwellian human rights commissions that seem less concerned with preserving freedom than repressing it for the sake of specific political causes .That leaves Israel as the sole voice of moral clarity on issues such as terrorism and democracy and as a target for a global mob willing to look the other way for the sake of oil in Europe's case or ego in the case of Obama and Kerry's. Canada has lost a long-serving leader in Harper's defeat, but the world has lost much more.
Today, we mourn the loss of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.
A year ago, the shooting in St. Jean sur Richelieu and at the War Memorial and the attempt to kill political leaders at the Canadian Parliament was an act of terror meant to send the message that Canada does not have honour, that the Jihadists hold our way of life in contempt and that our freedoms are repugnant to them. The attack on our soldiers signals to Canadians that jihadists intend to destroy our civilization, with its admirable history and institutions.
Canada must not be cowed. Canada must not allow itself to seek any kind of accommodation with such a brutal foe. Such accommodation includes our timorousness about naming the enemy and making a clear connection between attacks on our soldiers and the supremacist ideology of Islam. Only by naming the threat we face can be even begin to take steps to oppose and defeat it.
For too long we have maintained the fiction (despite many attempted Jihad assaults and foiled plots) that we could stay on the sidelines of this civilizational war; that we might be spared the suffering our allies have faced. That was never the case, however, and now it is abundantly clear. We are in a war for the continuance of our cherished freedoms and way of life. Before we can hope to defeat our enemy, we must be clear about the roots and aim of the belligerent ideology that seeks our submission. We must be prepared to fight it honestly and without hesitation.
Rest in Peace Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. You are not forgotten.
Muslim Invasion of Europe
The flow of illegal migrants does not stop. They land on the Greek islands along the Turkish coast. They still try to get into Hungary, despite a razor wire fence and mobilized army. Their destination is Germany or Scandinavia, sometimes France or the UK. Some of them still arrive from Libya. Since the beginning of January, more than 620,000 have arrived by sea alone. There will undoubtedly be many more. Western European political leaders could tell the truth and act accordingly. They do not. They talk of "solidarity," "humanitarian duty," "compassion." From the beginning, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany said that illegal migrants were welcome.
To date, Western Europeans -- principally the Germans and French, though the Brits, among others, are catching up -- are accelerating the importation of Muslims from war-torn lands on the south and east side of the Mediterranean. It isn't an invasion, but a mass migration with evident benefit to building Muslim hegemony in Western Europe. Yes, "hijra" now enters the Western lexicon, along with "jihad." Hijra is subjugation and conquest by an exotic name. One culture's refugee is another culture's -- and faith's -- warrior-migrant.
Europe's Muslim Migrants Bring Sex Pathologies in Tow
The body of a 20-year-old Syrian woman, "Rokstan M.," was unearthed from a shallow grave in the small Saxon town of Dessau last week. Her father and brothers stabbed her to death on her mother's orders, after she was gang-raped by three men. The rape left her "unclean" and the mother allegedly demanded the killing to restore the family's honor. Political leaders in Germany—which may absorb 1.5 million migrants this year—are struggling to respond to reports of a sex crime epidemic among newly-arrived Muslims. Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere urged Germans not to believe rumors of widespread rape at refugee centers, while Germany's police union chief Rainer Wendt warned, "There is a lot of glossing over going on. But this doesn't represent reality." Wendt added, "It is understandable that there is the desire to calm things down politically."
AROUND THE WORLD
German Chancellor Angela Merkel insisted that refusing to take in Muslim migrants is a "danger for Europe." Merkel as usual had it backward. It's her program of taking in Muslim migrants that represents the gravest threat to the freedom and future of Europe since the fall of the Soviet Union. Merkel's plan is to unilaterally demand that the rest of Europe "share" in the welfare, crime and terrorism of the Muslim migrants that she chose to take in. And there's nothing fair about that.
Europeans are told that they will lose their credibility if they don't take in Muslims. "Who are we to defend Christians around the world if we say we won't accept a Muslim or a mosque in our country?" she asks. "That won't do." Christian refugees in Germany report being persecuted, threatened and beaten by Muslims. An Iranian Christian refugee spoke of death threats from Syrian Muslim migrants. An Iraqi Christian family was beaten and told, "We will kill you and drink your blood."
Germany: Asylum Seekers Make Demands
Although most asylum seekers in Germany have a roof over their head, and receive three hot meals a day, as well as free clothing and healthcare, many are demanding: more money, more comfortable beds, more hot water, more ethnic food, more recreational facilities, more privacy — and, of course, their own homes. With refugee shelters across the country already filled to capacity, and more than 10,000 new migrants entering Germany every day, Germany is straining to care for all the newcomers, many of whom are proving to be ungrateful and impatient guests.
Al-Baghdadi's Trojan Horse Arrives in Europe
The caliph is doing exactly what he said he would do. If the European leaders fail to understand the strategy, it is very unfortunate and deplorable. When there is a surge of migrants coming from all remote corners of Africa and Asia to cross Mediterranean Sea into Europe, it does not happen just by accident. There is a hand directing the whole operation.
The libertarian European public may be swayed by the suffering of innocent men, women and children in war-torn regions, but it must also be appreciated that there is a sinister game that is being played out by the perverse Islamic State strategists to send jihadists mingled with the migrants to Europe. These jihadists are the "Trojan Horses" of the Islamic State.
Brooke Goldstein excoriates the Obama administration for equating the terrorist attackers of Israelis to Israel defending itself from those terrorists.
Attempting a feeble defense of the new Intifada was Mark Hannah, but Goldstein devastated his arguments at every turn. At one point he made the stupid argument saying that if your little brother was fighting in a schoolyard you wouldn't jump in and help him fight. Uh.. why wouldn't you?! Especially if it was clear that one side is the aggressor and the other is merely defending itself.
Sweden Close to Collapse
Sweden is fast approaching a complete collapse. More and more municipalities are raising the alarm that if the migrants keep coming at this pace, the government can no longer guarantee normal service to its citizens. In addition, ominous statements from government officials have left Swedes in fear of what tomorrow may bring. If the migrant wave keeps coming, in 10-15 years,Swedes will be a minority in their own country. While all this plays out, large portions of the Swedish people watch in horror from the sidelines and wonder when the unavoidable collapse will occur.
Kurds Ask for Peace, Turkey Attacks
In Turkey, at other gatherings, not even a mosquito can fly without the Turkish police interrupting it. Yet for this demonstration, there was no security; no medical personnel, no protection for the demonstrators. After the blasts, people were covering the dead with the banners they brought to the rally. People were trying to resuscitate the wounded and making splints for their broken bones by themselves. Who knows how many people would have survived had it not been for the tear gas that prevented them from breathing? So severe were the wounds that people could not even leave the area; and police were firing tear gas.
Islamic values are not compatible with European values. Not only free speech and religious freedom, but even the European welfare state is un-Islamic. Muslims have a high birth rate because their approach to the future is fundamentally different than the European one. Europeans have chosen to have few children and many government agencies to take care of them. Muslims choose to have many children and few government agencies. The European values so admired by American leftists have no future. Europe is drinking rat poison to cure a cold. Instead of changing its values, it's trying to maintain them by killing itself. The Mohammed retirement plan won't save European Socialism. It will bury it.
The Real Threat to Europe
The late Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, predicted that Islam would conquer Europe without even firing a shot. To understand and explain the fate awaiting Europe, it is necessary to listen seriously to what the upper echelons of Islam say to each about their own intentions -- in Arabic. These messages are quite different from those on Western television. What they say to one another is that the mission of Islam is to lead the whole world and eradicate all other religions, as they have been made irrelevant by the Qur'an.
Once this process is complete, all the Islamic communities will unite to form the Islamic Caliphate. It will have no borders and no other identity. Then there will be Peace. This, they say, was the state of affairs under Muhammad and this will be the state of affairs in the future. It is markedly apparent to us, however, that the world refuses to listen to what the Islamists are saying. Anyone who dares to issue a warning is called, among other names, an alarmist or a racist.
In a now upside-down world, it's reached the point where in essence radical Islam and Marxist governments want the same thing for society: the conversion of all Christian souls over to Islam and Marxism. For Islam to advance its Caliphate, for Marxism to make the end justify its means, it's your very immortal soul that they need. This two-headed enemy wants you in despair and feeling woefully alone. Politicians of the day like Barack Obama and now Canada's Justin Trudeau work to make Conservatives and Christians a hated-by-progressives minority to be hounded out of existence. But there are millions of us and they have an impossibly long way to go to get what they want.
Muslim Neighbors with Dr. Bill Warner
We should examine what the term "Muslim neighbor" means by looking at Mohammed, the perfect Muslim neighbor.
