    It’s not just the Mets who entered the NL East with high hopes and have fallen flat. It’s July 5, and Washington has a losing record. The 42-43 Nationals are scrambling to collect themselves. After getting swept for the third time since the start of June and dropping their season-high fifth straight game Wednesday, the Nationals held a players-only meeting after a 3-0 loss to the Red Sox. According to the Washington Post’s account, Max Scherzer was the leader of the meeting, which wasn’t officially called by one person, as veterans made sure the younger players stuck around.

    Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper won’t be a free-agent until October, but the anonymous backlash has already begun. One National League executive didn’t hold back, calling Harper a “losing player,” according to Robert Murray of FRS. What happened? A “top National League executive” sent Murray three texts with some harsh thoughts on Harper. Text one: “He’s simply overrated. The good ain’t worth the bad. He’s a losing player. Cares about himself more than the team. If I was in charge and had money, my team would not pursue him. We would use that money to sign 2-3 winning players.” Text...

    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...

    The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday. California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day and Lincoln Day with Presidents’ Day and install an “International Workers’ Day” — conventionally known as “May Day” — as a second holiday. “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee,” California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper said to the Assembly. “Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?”...

    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.

    Obama Plans Takedown of Another U.S. Ally Cliff Kincaid President Obama failed to take out Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but now he’s going after Canada’s Conservative Party Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a big supporter of Israel and opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin. It’s a story the U.S. media won’t cover. But Judi McLeod of the Canada Free Press has been documenting how Obama is planning the “fundamental transformation” of Canada by taking down Harper’s government and bringing to power a progressive majority assembled from Canada’s Liberal Party and New Democratic Party (NDP), an affiliate of the Socialist International....

    Stephen Harper, the only leader the Conservative Party of Canada has ever known, is stepping down. It just isn't clear when. Conservative Party president John Walsh made the announcement in a media release Monday night, shortly after Justin Trudeau's Liberals captured a stunning majority government. "I have spoken to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and he has instructed me to reach out to the newly elected parliamentary caucus to appoint an Interim Leader and to the National Council to implement the leadership selection process pursuant to the Conservative Party of Canada constitution," Walsh said in the release.

    Canada's Liberal leader Justin Trudeau rode a late campaign surge to a stunning election victory on Monday, toppling Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives with a promise of change and returning a touch of glamor, youth and charisma to Ottawa. Canada's major television networks projected the Liberals' victory and the party was on the cusp of a majority. While the final vote count was not yet complete, Trudeau's Liberals were on track to win 174 of Parliament's 338 seats, according to Elections Canada. Trudeau, 43, the photogenic son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, vaulted from third place to lead the...

    Toronto Sun ^ | Oct.15/15 | Editorial
    There's been a lot of talk in this election about strategic voting -- voting for someone you don't really support to block someone else you support even less. That's not our advice to our readers in this very important election. We urge you to vote for the leader and party you believe is best qualified to lead Canada. On that basis, we endorse Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. Harper successfully led Canada through the worst recession since the Great Depression, emerging in better shape than almost any other developed country. Since then, he has successfully balanced the federal...

    TORONTO - Can the Great One score votes, too? Wayne Gretzky is joining Conservative leader Stephen Harper on the federal election campaign trail. The Tory campaign announced late Thursday that Harper will be participating in an event with Gretzky at the Carlu in Toronto Friday at 6 p.m. It isn’t the first time this year that the hockey legend has helped a right-wing Canadian politician with an assist. Earlier this year, Gretzky skated into the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership campaign with an endorsement of Patrick Brown.

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Having staked his reputation on strong economic management, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has decided that the best way to win re-election when the headlines say recession is to convince the country it is no longer in one. Tuesday brought the worst kind of news for a prime minister campaigning for a rare fourth term in office: government data that confirmed Canada's economy contracted for the second quarter in a row, the technical definition of recession. But Harper shrugged off the data from the first half of the year, saying Canada had a "couple of weak months,"...

    Various people have asked me why I will not vote for Stephen Harper and the Conservatives in this election. While the Cons’ failure to seriously tackle the deficit, reduce the size of government and begin to dismantle the Liberal state are all good reasons, I probably would hold my nose one more time if it were not for one, fundamental fact: C-51. And I might have even given Harper a pass on C-51 if I didn’t know the Conservative record on free speech, the perversion of the Human Rights Commission and the legal thuggery which attended it.

    Once it is established a person travelled to a forbidden designated area, the onus is on them to convince intelligence agencies they were there for a legitimate un-terror related purpose Earlier this week Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced if his Conservative Party retains power after the October 19 federal election, legislation would be introduced to ban travel to certain “designated areas.” Those who travel to these areas and cannot prove they did so for a legitimate non-terror related reason, will be subject to criminal prosecution. It is already a crime in Canada to participate in or aid a terrorist group....

    Adbusters magazine—the flagship of the Canadian non-profit Adbusters Media Foundation that spawned Occupy Wall Street (OWS)—is out to take down Stephen Harper’s Conservative Government in October elections. The magazine that calls all restless millennials to arms in a revival of 1960-styled protests for ultimate Marxist takeover—is printed in the United States. The message of its 100,000 international circulation, found mostly in corner convenience stores like 7-Eleven is a clarion call to Marxism: “Let the Global Revolution Begin”, “Cultural Revolution is Our Business”. Adbusters lure to disaffected youth of the day is the raunchy: “Having fun, Kicking #”. (Canada Free Press,...

    When asked about new firearms legislation at an event in Saskatoon, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said there are too many restrictions on gun ownership, which he added is important for the livelihoods of rural people, recreation and personal safety according to CTV. “My wife’s from a rural area and obviously gun ownership wasn’t just for the farm, but was for a certain level of security when you’re a ways away from immediate police assistance,” he said during a question-and-answer session with the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities.
