But what Canada needs to do is invest far more in its military and intelligence operations and have much tighter foreign ownership rules regarding property. Lastly, instead of a domestic carbon tax we should be carbon taxing all the coal we export to China.

    Can Canadians buy property in China? If not Chinese shouldn't be able to buy property in Canada.

    Re: Trump wins the President of the United States Election

    Trump goes on TV tonight to tell his lies. Not sure that's a smart strategy for him.

    Yes, Trump remains popular among Republicans. But his overall approval rating is just 41%, and the number of Americans that think he is honest is even lower at 36%.

    For him to have 80%+ among GOP voters shows how much the GOP has shrunk. The spanking the GOP took in the mid-terms is just the beginning.

    A fascinating read. Pretty much everything Trump is doing, even how he acts "unhinged" as leader, has all been done before.

    Looks like the Trump investigation is going to fall flat. McCabe pretty much admitted they didn't have any evidence to investigate Trump under oathe. The only thing the fbi had was the Steele dossier, which Comey later admitted under oath he didn't know if this piece of evidence was properly corroborated. This investigation was either a witch hunt, or the fbi is utterly incompetent.

    1. That is not what McCabe said.
    2. Nobody really knows what the Mueller report will reveal, but it won't be nothing. There have already been dozens of indictments.
    3. Manafort. Cohen. Tillerson. Fall flat? It's already born a TON of fruit.

    There is another possibility.

    Just none of it is landing on Trump, his administration, or at all related to what the investigation started as. Remember, this is about Russian collusion. You know, how Trump and Russia somehow, and for some reason, conspired to get a nationalist elected rather than a globalist with preexisting deep ties to Russia. Trump will end up being the most heavily vetted and cleanest President. 2 years and 200 interviews is resulting in a big giant ball of absolutely nothing.

    Yeah, yeah, I know. The orange man is bad.

    He is bad. But it's anyone's guess what Mueller's report will say. It is most certainly not a witch hunt, though.

    It may not be a witch hunt and I certainly accept the possibility that the investigation was created for valid and rational reason. Will you accept the possibility it was not? What if this was a witch hunt?

    Robert Mueller doesn't do witch hunts, mate. I accept the very real possibility that Mueller will not indict Trump at all.

    Mueller has more threads to pull on than a yarn factory.
    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Re: Trump wins the President of the United States Election

    Just get me within half a mile of him...

    I do find it funny that AOC is dropping truth bombs all over the place and everyone is being dismissive of her for things like lack of political experience. Trump's a multiple bankrupt (morally and financially) business owner with the help of daddy's big pockets with ZERO political experience aside from insulting former POTUS's...
    Just a quick shout out to Mr."Winning isn't everything" for pis*ing away not one but TWO HoF QB's. F*ck you Len and good riddance.

    He is also the most respected law enforcement agent by both parties in the whole country. If there's something to find, he'll find it. If there isn't he's not going to engage in a witch hunt.

    AOC gets dismissed because she says crazy shyte and doubles down on the identity politics that made Trump inevitable. The world will end in 12 years?

    The biggest thing she's doing is getting more younger people involved/interested in politics and voting...

    This is good. So if he comes back with nothing, you'll accept the results. I'm happy about that.

    AOC is nuts, literally and figuratively. If I couldn't watch her implode the far left Democrats in real time I'd think she was written by a Republican parody writer.

    If Bob Mueller says "nothing to see here" I will 100% accept that.

    McCabe admitted that the investigation never would have happened without the dossier, which was never properly verified. According to the law, every piece of evidence included in a FISA application must be verified. Any evidence gathered after the FISA Warrant cannot be used as the predicate to investigate Trump, which is exactly what McCabe is trying to do because the Steele dossier is junk.

    I almost took the bait. Almost. Upon further review, I agree with you wholeheartedly. I will stubbornly cling to whatever belief I currently have! This explains why I'm a Riders' fan for only the thinnest of reasons and will never change.

    Given the growth in the size of the government/fascist State in the U.S. since WWII, methinks she wrote the book seventy years too late. That she chose to write it right now tells me that she has a certain specific partisan political ax to grind.

    Interesting that for whatever reason she's served only in the Administration's of Democrat Presidents.

    From deposition of Jeffrey Epstein:

    Q: Have you ever socialized with Donald Trump in the presence of females under the age of 18?

    Epstein: Though I’d like to answer that question, at least today I’m going to have to assert my 5th, 6th and 14th Amendment rights, sir.



    I almost puked reading that.

    Re: Trump wins the President of the United States Election

    I think I need avoid this thread.

    Madeline Albright worked under Democratic Administrations, thus she must be a hack? OK, guess you know best after all.
    US government larger and more fascist since WWII? Larger, in what sense? I dunno Bob, probably more intrusive during WWII.
    The horrid evils of “wild-eyed” socialism? Please.

    Ye Olde right wing cliches.
    How ... unimaginative.
    How truly ... inaccuarate and narrowly intransigent, in an abusive way.

    Just a reminder, I guess, why several others on this site no longer visit this thread.

    There are right wing and left wing cliches.

    One side thinks all corporations are evil and the other thinks that government health insurance is the same thing as communism. Both are wrong.
    One side thinks equality means equality of result while the other thinks it means no rules whatsoever. Both are wrong.
    One side thinks that the only way anybody ever got rich was by being greedy and corrupt while the other thinks that all poor people are lazy. Both are wrong.

    There is no reasoning with extremists, mate.

    Basically what I was saying, but you made it understandable. Thx.
    Nonetheless, can't say I know many left wing folks who think that extreme. On the other hand ….

    Quite frankly, the extreme left scares me more than the right these days. I was told by a diversity officer at a college campus that the sheer act of being born white and male was an act of violence. No lie.
