According to a Toronto Star article:
Justin Trudeau has been working assiduously to invoke the ghost of Stephen Harper, but this week the ghost himself appeared, no Liberal conjuring needed….There was the former prime minister, in a full-page ad in The New York Times, offering a full-throated endorsement of Donald Trump.
The Star’s article referred to Harper’s support for President Trump’s scrapping the Iranian deal, a deal that enabled Iran to expand its regional and global support of terrorism. Iran’s Supreme leader, the Ayatollah Khamenei, has vowed to destroy America and has called any promotion of negotiations treason. Khamenei has also promoted a nine-point plan to annihilate the “barbaric” state of Israel.
The deal saw billions pumped into the rogue state of Iran’s coffers, which it used to advance its proxies globally and expand its nuclear capability. “55,000 pages of documents and 183 CD’s revealed that Iran hid an atomic archive of documents on its nuclear program.” Iran has been “blatantly lying” as it developed its nuclear program.
Yet Trudeau “delivered a thinly veiled rebuke to the Trump administration and Israel over their opposition to the Iran nuclear deal.” It is difficult to imagine that any mentally competent individual could possibly deem the rogue state of Iran to be trustworthy. This leaves one to reason that there are other variables at work. For instance:
Justin Trudeau has an unsavory record of supporting Islamic supremacists and putting Canadians at risk of jihad attacks. After Trump’s victory, Trudeau was so unnerved that he set up a “war room within his office” to monitor the new U.S. President.
Trudeau has shown himself to be an indiscreet man. He was investigated by Canada’s Ethics Commissioner for breaching four sections of Canada’s Conflict of Interest Act. He defrauded Canadians of $200,000 for a family vacation on the Aga Khan’s private Bahamian island. He also held a secret meeting with former Taliban captive Joshua Boyle (who is facing 15 charges), robbed taxpayers of $10,500,000 in a payout to infamous jihadist Omar Khadr, and quietly paid three more Muslims who were said to have been tortured while in detention in Syria and Egypt. According to a CBC report:
Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland issued a statement Friday saying that with the settlement and an apology from government, the civil case involving Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Abou-Elmaati and Muayyed Nureddin was now closed.
Trudeau is now desperately trying to extricate himself from his endless messes by smearing his biggest rival in the 2019 elections — the Conservative Party of Canada, led by Andrew Scheer:
The Conservatives, Trudeau charged, have learned nothing from their 2015 defeat and are continuing with the same negative tactics and divisive policies that characterized their government under Stephen Harper. He noted that Tory leader Andrew Scheer has dubbed himself “Stephen Harper with a smile” — indicating it was Harper’s temperament that caused the Tory defeat.
Trudeau figures that by connecting Scheer to former Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, whom he defeated in the 2015 elections, somehow the clock would turn back to a moment before Canada actually saw Trudeau’s failings. Yet Trudeau’s “selfie advantage” ended, even among youth, in March after his many gaffes and bad decisions humiliated both himself and Canada as a whole, and infuriated those who are proud defenders of Canadian values.
The usually Liberal-supporting Toronto Star ran an uproariously funny piece: _“For the sake of peoplekind, Justin Trudeau needs to shut his mouth._“ His hapless visit to India conjured up the ghost of Harper in a headline: “If you thought Harper hurt our global standing, then take a look at Trudeau.”
Yet the Toronto Star indicated that “painting Scheer as Harper redux, leading the Harper party, has been a preoccupation with Trudeau,” and it still refers Harper as “toxic” and paints him as a bad brand for the Conservatives.
It simply is not true.
Stephen Harper has made no secret about his unwavering support for the right of Israel to exist in peace in the face of the jihadist endeavor to destroy it, which has been going on since 1948. He has also openly defended the rights and freedoms of all Canadians, whether Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, atheist, etc. The Conservative tabling of the “Zero Tolerance Against Barbaric Cultural Practices Bill” drew out the “Islamophobia” brigade, but that measure was intended to protect the victims of such practices.
But in a Globe and Mail article entitled “Stephen Harper finally lets his sharp conservatism fly,” Harper — who was elected Chair of the International Democratic Union — was castigated for:
The article concludes that Stephen Harper “no longer has to compromise as he once did to govern a moderate, centrist Canada.” The implication is that to support Iran’s nuclear ambitions and fling open Canada’s doors indiscriminately is somehow “centrist.” As bizarre as such reasoning is, conservatives have far too long accepted, internalized, and cowered before undeserved names such as “Islamophobic,” “far right,” “neo-Nazi,” “racist,” “imbalanced,” “intolerant” and the like. Nothing will change that branding because it has worked to instill fear — not wisdom, but a crippling dread.
It has long been the strategy of Islamic supremacist groups and social justice warriors, who weaken their own democracies and revile capitalism, to intimidate conservatives into feeling guilty for standing up for free societies and the equality of rights of all people. Conservatives will never win the support of Islamic supremacists and social justice warriors, no matter what. Trump showed the way forward by rejecting the strictures of leftist and Muslim lobby intimidation, and is delivering on his promise to “make America great again.” It took two terms of Obama for conservatives in America to vote in Donald Trump. The work of Canada’s Conservative MP’s in is cut out for them as they navigate the machinations of the leftist media in Canada and of Trudeau, while the latter chips away at Canadian values. A “joint initiative between the Liberal government of Canada, the UN High Commission on Refugees and Soros’s Open Society Foundations” is also of grave concern.
Stephen Harper is not the bogeyman for Canadians; three years after the 2015 elections, conservative Canadians are realizing this. The real bogeymen are Islamic State jihadists on the loose who are welcomed in by Trudeau, Islamic supremacists threatening the freedom of speech through the “anti-Islamophobia” motion M-103, and skyrocketing debt due to Justin Trudeau being a spending fool. Throw in Trudeau’s immigration policies as well. He tweeted out an open welcome to asylum seekers when Trump implemented his temporary travel ban from some majority-Muslim countries. Now Canadians are left to foot the bill as 400 illegal migrants per day are expected to pour through Canada’s porous borders this summer. Some will, of course, be security threats.
Europe has shown the world a great deal about what happens when governments fail to protect their citizens from Islamic supremacist incursion, whose exponents have no genuine respect for human rights.
