    This article from the Canada Free Press (because without America, there is no free world) gives me a chance to digress. The constant barrage from the two Canadian monoliths in television went beyond mere news. Again and again the well known figures were concealing quite their gloating. This as Mrs. Trump was juxtaposed with Mrs. Obama. One has to be well versed in their tones and meaningful glances.

    To cap it all and I quickly turned off the radio and CBC Radio One, there was sweet Carol Off. She was interviewing someone Stateside about the ramifications of the speech by Mrs. Trump.

    The two Canadian television news outlets seem to be nothing but shills against Donald Trump. None of their business anyway.

    Liberals have destroyed Hollywood and this is clearly reflected by the declining number of people attending the trash they put out.

    I hope that the declining numbers of cinema goes is a true fact. I have to humour my spouse (bless her) and go to a movie. This is about twice a month.

    Now the only choice of six movies locally was a movie called "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates". I am not easily shocked and am not prudish. My quick summation of it is that it shows what an older generation would call perversion. If, what is shown in that movie is accepted as a "norm", they (perverts) may have won. It not that, then they are winning.

    I cannot believe Canadians voted for this nonsense again. fwiw

    Figures were 39% Liberal. 30% Conservative. 22% NDP 9% others. Canadians cannot vote head to head for a Prime Minister. He only appears on his district/riding ballot. Justine Trudeau in suburb of Montreal.

    Sault Saint. Marie Ontario and Sault Sainte Marie Michigan one of the friendliest neighbour relationships in North America. Mind yer manners and get treated very well on both sides of the border.

    Excuse the sermon. Reminds me of the hard scrabble years post war England. We saw Hollywood films and thought all Americans had a beautiful mansion with a glamorous women walking down at staircase. Or in other locations spoke like the Bowery Boys. Maybe some Americans think we are all like the ones portrayed here. (laughs

    A statement by Sheriff David Clarke re President Obama and his response.

    "he sort of fuels this misplaced anger."

    I remember the role of much of the MSM during the episode of police arrest of Rodney King. It seemed the very incessant repetition of the video, may have driven the violence of protesters. Just my humble opinion here. I watched massive and continuous showing of videos. These videos showed black men allegedly resisting arrest by police. This repeated showing, with their deaths may have been a factor. I mean it was hour after hour repetition.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau still flying very high with many of his Canadian supporters. It does seem that he has perfected the art of appearing in public and being a "nice guy".I would like to repeat some of my post on the 28th June last.

    About a year previously to a policy enactment by the Stephen Harper Conservative government the alarms went off. Number of Mexicans admitted to Canada was 9462. It was found a consistency in most of them breaking the rules of entry.

    The Conservative government then enacted a new law requiring a visa for Mexicans to enter Canada. With such a visa one is generally required to return to one' country within a certain time. In 2008 the numbers of Mexican applicants dropped to 1,999. Justin Trudeau gained his office last August.

    I would venture, without being too critical, that Prime Minister Trudeau seems absolutely oblivious of the fact of logistics. This in providing accommodation, medical care, employment for newcomers.

  • CANADA TO LIFT VISA REQUIREMENTS FOR MEXICO

    Peter Libra to ameribbean expat
    FWIW. The Conservative Government of Canada was lead by Stephen Harper in 2008. Officials became concerned about the increase of persons entering Canada from Mexico. The figures for one year alone totalled 9462 entrants. There were a huge number of violations to the immigration act by many of them.

    The Harper Government then require a visa application by would be entrants from Mexico. The figures for 2009 following this were 1.199 entrants. I remember the warnings on this website and elsewhere by our American friends on the risk of electing Justin Trudeau He seemed to be like minded in ways to the incumbent in the White House. This includes less controlled immigration.

    Prime Minister Trudeau will never have to face the ramifications of an already over taxed system. That system, which is the envy of much poorer nations, is creaking at the seams in many areas. Affordable public housing. Heavy demands on the medical profession. Overcrowded hospitals.

    Your post re any insight.

    This is a tough one to call for me as I am an expat from England in Canada since 1955. The only way I can offer any knowledge of the British Socialist is a few little stories.

    I remember the Labour Party of the new Coalition Government. The leaders of that party were given mandated high positions in the Conservative Government. This was in WW2. One of the new leaders was a Herbert Morrison (Labour). A valiant speaker for the rights of man.

    The Communists detestable as they were, published their newspaper- the Daily Worker. They did not support the war wholeheartedly. The editorial page made one little snide statement about the capitalists.

    Down came Morrison. He had the whole newspaper shut down, threatened to lock em' up. They were only able to publish until they came on side when Russia was invaded by Hitler's forces.

    Scratch a dyed in the wool Socialist and often find a bit of a tin pot dictator within.

    I have studied the life of Adolf Hitler in such publications as Robert Payne's The Life and Death of Adolf Hitler. Praeger Publishers. 1973.

    My impression formed of a real Nazi is one that was somewhat formidable. A protester at one of the beer hall meetings of the early NAZI party was lucky if he just got punched and thrown out. If unlucky he would be on his back and a boot would come down on his face.

    The damn fools and their ilk do not know what a NAZI is. One could add - or what a NAZI was.

    There are facts that do not make sense.

    I am in complete agreement here. These are pertinent questions that should be pursued. I am an expat from England and a Canadian citizen. What I just cannot figure is how a 19 year old gets enough credit/cash to have an automobile and drive around many miles. The old adage drummed into my youthful head in England was "money doesn't grow on trees". Perhaps now it does. Many would like to know the secret where I live in Canada.

    I smile sadly as I remember my own attempt to get into the United States as a 23 year old in 1954. I got the forms from the American embassy in London. I had to have a clear years pay in hand and a sponsor, the forms said. Canada wanted $150 dollars and disembark, then find work.

    In anyone's language this fellow is not only a fool, but pathetic to boot. Albeit dangerous too.

    Yes, the Ernest Shackleton expedition of 1914. An epic of courage and endurance. The part always with me was when, not knowing they had journeyed the right way, they paused. The Norwegians had a whaling station which was out of sight. If they had taken the route to safety, they would hear the whistle to arouse the Norwegians at 6.00 am. The start of the working day.

    A watch was produced and they waited. Then at 6.00 am they heard the whistle. A mile or so on, they saw the whaling station The Norwegians treated them royally and sent a team back for the men left behind. Excuse the liberty of this post, but that moment when they heard the whistle lives with me.

    Good for Prince Charles! I think the real British people will rally around the Monarchy.

    In this way any stiffening of the resolve in a potential commander should be applauded. We of the English speaking world and Western Civilization will need all the support we can get.

    Tragic of course and no right minded person would wish for such a wicked act. What I do find however, especially in Canada is this. That the proponents of unlimited immigration are usually those that do not face the consequences.

    It is a matter of logistics. Hospital staff strained to the limits. Not enough physicians per head of population. Long waiting lists for affordable public housing. Various government agencies such as child welfare and elderly care facing pressure of overwork.

    The proponents of this kind of immigration rarely themselves face the problems of the average ordinary citizen. Thus they enable immigration and close their eyes to the ultimate problems.

    Your comment.

    Never let a crisis go to waste.

    Never a truer word. On both Canadian television news networks a change has now taken place. Previously for some reason they seemed a bit shy of showing men kissing intimately. They did show quick shots of some well known film idol clowning around and kissing a man. Then they cut quickly away.

    Now post Orlando, they are showing the homosexuals kissing and slobbering with each other. I suppose that all objections are now completely stilled. Once again it should be repeated that years ago, the homosexual simply asked to be left alone. Simply go behind closed doors and everybody mind their own business. Something very wrong here in what seems to be happening. I myself do not give a damn what they do and whom they go with. This as long as I can walk away and ignore. (Excuse the rant).

    I hope to be excused from up Canada way, as I do not have a dog in the hunt, so to speak. The definition of OCHLOCRACY in Wikipedia is that it is MOB RULE. The rule of government by mob or mass of people, or the intimidation of legitimate authorities.
    It could be that even the election- or rejection of Donald Trump, may be comparatively insignificant to the actual ramifications. For that wonderful document, the Constitution of the United States itself is under threat. If the American people are suborned, threatened, attacked, when they express their rights of free assembly, it is the Constitution that is under attack.

    Sad of course. I once was a boxing fan and saw some of his fights on the television. I note the mention of Parkinson's Disease caused by head blows. I know in England they do studies on the brain of dead persons. I read of Boxing idols of the 1950's in Britain showing signs of brain damage after a post mortem. Doctor Edith Summerskill of the ruling Labour Party said Boxing should be banned at the time. Great scoffs and remarks from nearly all.

    Ali named for Cassius Marcellus Clay 1810-1903 Republican. He was an abolitionist and was shot at an abolitionist meeting in 1843. He recovered and survived an assassination attempt by six men in 1849, killing one of them. Yet Ali said he "ain't having no slave name". This to explain his name change. I did read he joined the Muslims to keep organized crime figures away.

    Paying our enemies to feed and breed all the while being spat in our faces.

    At one time during the past decade it seemed to me that the more they got, the more they hated. I have memories of the hard scrabble years post war in England. This is what I culled from Wiki.

    Facing our crisis it was stated that from the United States "Every thing we got in WW2 was free". An American loan was then negotiated and fifty years of one year payments agreed on. It was nearly one billion dollars then. Britain took sixty years to repay the loan with a modest two percent interest per year. Finally paid in 2006. This I am proud of. I understand the only other nation that paid up a loan was Finland.

    America does not need the sneers of effete Europeans and the hate of hell hole countries.

Now living in their neat little suburban villas in England. A friendly Bobby within a phone call if yobs (rowdie youths) kick up trouble.

    Thank you for the very well done presentation by my countrymen. I remembered fairly closely this at 2:02 minutes. A statement to the effect that when the record of this war hero was made known things got into gear. Roughly that there was no way only a simple service would do. That "we had to do something special".

    I was just a snot nosed kid near the big American Air Force at Ruislip, Middlesex during part of the war. The Royal Air Force was flying sorties out of Northolt close by. Always remember how friendly the Americans were to kids. The British adult usually suspicious of any strange small boys ('ere, wot are you doin?)

    His passing though sad, was without pain and lingering illness.

    A positive story here.

    I am indebted to you for this absolute treasure trove of old London. My father was born at Bromley by Bow in 1905. His father was a dock worker and drafted in WW1, taken prisoner early in that war in France. Address given was Kerbey Street, Poplar. My father said very little of his early life. He joined the British Army to escape grinding poverty, since his father's health was ruined after three years as a prisoner. He was permanently unemployed.

    I now have a graphic idea of just how things were for my father and his sisters. Small wonder he hardly ever reminisced about his childhood.

    I viewed a quick pan to former prime minister Stephen Harper as he viewed the incident. I reminded by this of that section of the voting public. How they were gulled by the CBC and other news media to go against Harper. Talking about him being a "control freak, cool and distant" and so on.

    There seems to be the idea that a charismatic figure with physical attributes, makes a better politician. Using simple logic it should be considered as to the experience, the actual performance in what they do. Yet, as in our friendly neighbours election it is similar. It seems numbers of voters want a matinee idol.

    True, everyone has a choice as to which party they vote for. Prime Minister Trudeau only appeared on the ballot in his constituency. The rest of the country when voting Liberal, were allowing that party to name the leader. Unlike the system in the United States where it is head to head and voters can choose. Based on the British Parliamentary system. This where Winston Churchill easily won his constituency in 1945. However, his Tories were defeated nation wide. (Excuse the rant).

    Total population in London proper.
    8.6 million.
    voting turnout
    44 percent.
    Mayor Khan. 1.3 million.
    Opponent Goldsmith. 954 thousand.

    Yes, Donald Trump single handed (support him or not), is the greatest check to the obscenity of political correctness in many years.

    George Orwell would have been in absolute agreement with Trump's barrage.

    Your post #41. A little bit of encouragement on your part to this expat in Ontario, Canada. I do remember the fiery rhetoric that came from on Mahmoud Ahamadinejad, President of Iran 2005 -2013. He was like a prize turkey cock against the United States. A lot of blood pressure over this man. Now it is crickets.

    As for Khan, I remind myself of an old Scottish saying when I worked up there. Dinna fash yersel. Meaning do not mind something that will fade in it's time. Another old London saying here - All mouth and trousers.

    True it is a grim and depressing situation with the virtual ethnic cleansing taking place in England. I name one of my residences just outside London, called Southall. I hate to predict the future. America is the last bastion of freedom in this old world.

  • London's New Mayor Warns Trump: Let In Muslims Or They Will Attack America

    Then there were the Japanese. Thought that America was soft and attacked Pearl Harbor. One wise man, a high ranking admiral then told his countrymen "You have awakened a sleeping giant". Yes indeed they did.

    Alas for my own native country and city, I have some doubt. This as to whether they can rise to the occasion of bluster and threat. I read of the great charge of the fanatical Dervish of Islam at Omdurman (Sudan) in 1898. 20,000 horsemen ready to die for Allah. 11,000 of them did. American machine guns used by Kitchener's soldiers did the trick.

    That man in London sounds like a cheap edition of the North Korean leader. Bluster, threat, posturing. Meantime I have to view the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Having hissy fits over the possibility of a Trump victory. The damn hypocrites will still head south for an escape from the Canadian winter though.

    Old time orders to the troops of the British Army were "steady in the ranks". This could be a watchword. Excuse the rant, I have Wiser's Deluxe rye whisky to hand.

    Your comment in making an entry into the UK.

    I just wonder if they have the same rules or if they discriminate against Christian American?

    I have already posted a comment and just could not refrain from re-posting this story. My wife (a liberal bless her) went back to her native London from Canada in the 1990's. She had a Canadian Passport- she needed Canadian citizenship to teach.

    The customs officer at Heath Row was a muslim woman. She acted in a hostile manner and asked a number of questions. This concerned the nine weeks my wife was to stay. Finally, my wife stated that she was born in England and had every right to admitted. The woman threw down her passport and waved her through.

    British law is- or was, that any person no matter what other countries citizenship they had, they were still British on entry.

    Your post #6 comparing respective voting trends.

    Figures are Khan 56.9 percent and Goldsmith 43.1 percent. What should be considered is the old class system in England. Khan was touted as working class and bought up in council houses (subsidized rent) son of a taxi driver. Goldsmith was educated at the highest of elite universities. He is a multi-millionaire. They use political party status in their mayoral elections. Khan is of the Labour Party. Goldsmith of the Conservative Party. The turnout of voters was only 45 percent.

    As for myself from London,living in Canada, I can only wonder at the new mayor's claim to unite. In the next breath, he snipes at Donald Trump. Imagining some action by Trump, even before Trump has power.

    Once a leftie liberal always a leftie .

    I would venture -although not having been to my native city London for 20 years, that party lines might have been a factor. I know that in Canada, Mayoral elections are generally run according to the persons vying for the position. Their political affiliations generally not stated.

    Khan was backed by the Labour Party. Goldsmith by the Conservative Party. Goldsmith highly educated and from the wealthy class, possibly seen in a certain light. This to his disadvantage. That being said, the legendary Dick Whittington (Three times Lord Mayor of London) is turning in his grave. In his day, Islam was feared and hated. The name given to it's followers as "Moors".

  • In Search Of The Red Cross' $500 Million In Haiti Relief

    Town called Fort McMurray in Alberta menaced by huge bush fires, 80,000 residents evacuated. I saw the Red Cross donation boxes already out at the local LCBO sales outlet. It is said Canadians have already donated billions to various aid agencies. This for the extensive damage to at least 1,600 homes.

    I checked on this title "Chief Information Officer" for the Canadian Red Cross. Grade one $105 thousand dollars. Grade two. $160 thousand dollars. I got caught for twenty dollars monthly last year. The Red Cross shipped a group of young females from Toronto and they went door to door. Locally, the consensus in my Ontario city is only the "Sally Ann" - Salvation Army gives out a detailed and worthy accounting of donations.

    Haiti happens to be a prime example of the bureaucrat in charge. Nothing one can really do. No conscience, no shame.

  • Vile Racism Forces Fox News To Close Comments On Malia Obama Article

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if the left posted those hateful comments just to make Fox look bad.

    I agree and we on FR have been informed of such tactics again and again. This is in universities when "racist hate" comments were scrawled on walls. I may be wrong but, I did not read of a case where a "privileged white student" was clearly identified. Given this tactic, I am surprised to have to wait this long on the site.

    I suppose that the ordinary right thinking person falls into the same old trap. That trap is used so successfully by the cunning leftists. Stir up people's emotions and sit back and laugh when they fall for the ploy.
