  1. You say he was a CIA agent, but that is incorrect. That is not what he was charged for. He was charged with being connected to some terrorist group, not spying.
  2. Don't forget the 100 million people that died at the hands of the atheists Marxist-Leninists behind the Russian revolution and the Chinese Communist revolution, not to mention the tens of thousands killed in the Cuban revolution. Those who fought and resisted Communist revolutions were fighting for freedom, which is a legitimate thing to do.
  3. There is not likely to be a hot war between Russia/China and the west, at least not for the foreseeable future. The reason is would mean mutually-assured destruction (MAD). China's aim is to create a huge imperial empire which they control and this is what they are achieving, without annexing any country or land.
  4. If you don't believe in God and the Bible, you are likely a climate change alarmist. Lots of people afraid the sky is falling like little Greta. Watch the video of the debate between the famous atheist Dawkins and John Lennox just to learn what the central issues are. How one views the global warming debate is effected by how they view God and what the Bible teaches. That is just a simple fact. Some worship mother earth, some worship a false interpretation of science, and some worship the U.N. IPCC and whatever it says even though it is more of a political group than science.
  5. Trudeau talked to Biden and Biden made the standard statement that the two Michaels must be released. This has been said over and over by various leaders and is of course ignored by China. Why would China care if hostage-diplomacy works for them? When Turkey was holding an American pastor in prison, Trump told Turkey release him or there will be action. Shortly after Trump ordered trade sanctions to be put on Turkey for certain things. The Pastor was quickly released. The question is does Biden have the fortitude to take concrete action and do the same thing? I doubt it. It's all hot air.
  6. Not sure what you mean. He claimed two years ago U.S. had dumped twice as much CO2 as China. The graph I posted shows the CO2 from fossil in 2018. China's was almost double the U.S. Right to Left claimed the reverse.
  7. There has to be some form of justice in the world for crimes against humanity, just as there were war crime trials for the Naziis. Likewise there has to be trade sanctions for countries guilty of crimes against humanity. We will have to look elsewhere to trade.
  8. Right to Left, This shows China's CO2 emissions are 28% of the global emissions, while the U.S. is 15%. But the total fossil fuel emissions is still about a miniscule amount of the CO2 in the atmosphere.

  10. "There is a 'very credible case' that China is committing genocide against Muslim Uighurs, UK legal experts conclude Group of UK lawyers made the conclusion after reviewing 'sufficient evidence' They also deemed China's treatment of Uighur people crimes against humanity An opinion letter held President Xi personally responsible for China's conduct It is estimated that more than one million ethnic Muslims have been rounded up The Biden administration also labelled China's policies in Xinjiang as genocide" - thedailymail.co.uk
  11. It doesn't really matter who opened relations with China first. The problem as I've stated was Pierre Trudeau and following governments in Canada as well as other western countries cozied up to Communist China ever since. It is dealing with a diabiolical system which from the start murdered millions of their own people and always have denied their people human rights. What is the west think they're doing dealing with China? Obviously money and international trade always was all that mattered.
  12. I doubt Trudeau was especially acting for Kissinger and Nixon. There was no love between Pierre Trudeau and Nixon. The book "The Truth about Trudeau" (Pierre Trudeau) has a lot of information about how Pierre Trudeau had a great interest in the USSR, China, and Communist Cuba, especially Fidel Castro. Trudeau traveled to China and was very interested in their country and system. He also traveled to Cuba and became close friends with Castro. Trudeau shunned our American allies and reduced the number of NATO troops in Europe. Trudeau was a kind of radical who seemed to operate outside the realm of western democracy. 1970 was also the middle of the Viet Nam war when America was fighting against the growth of Communism in Viet Nam.
  13. Is the CCP not trying to eliminate a whole group, the Muslims?
  14. The Communist system is already an enemy of America and western democracies. Pierre Trudeau cozied up with the CCP and Chairman Mao in 1970 and established diplomatic relations. The Uyghurs and people of Hong Kong don't need Xi to lose their rights and the Uyghurs being exterminated is happening now even with close trade ties. It is the Communist system which opposes human rights and is our adversary and was not recognized as such by Pierre Trudeau, and all politicians in Canada ever since. You can't sit down and deal with the Devil without expecting to lose in the end or you can't expect a fair outcome by trading and dealing with them. Liberals have thought all along that by dealing with them, the CCP would somehow change and become like the west. This was part of the deception westerners and liberals swallowed. There is a price to pay and it is now at the Cold War stage as China extends it's influence and control over western nations. The problem began in 1949 when China was taken over by Communist-Leninist and western liberals could not see the sinister implications for the future. This actually goes back to the 1800s when certain missionaries from Canada traveled to China and began their work there. Later in the 20th century some of them established some ties with leaders of the two main political movements and even their top leaders. A few of these missionaries were badly misguided and became friends with the Communist revolutionary leaders and actually morally supported them. This relationship seems to have continued after the revolution in 1949 and there was some connection with Canada's department of foreign affairs. This led to Canada trying to establish relations between Canada and the CCP. This finally happened when Canada became one of the first nations to establish diplomatic relations with the CCP in 1970 under the liberal leader Pierre Trudeau, who had a fascination with Communist dictatorships.
  15. "11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret." Ephesian 5:11, 12 KJB The Bible warns of evil associations but apparently most politicians didn't get the message. America, Canada, and the rest of the west ignored this Biblical principle and went into Communist China with eyes wide open and established relations, massive trade, education exchanges, immigration, investment, knowledge transfer, and permitted infiltration of all facets of western society. Now the mask is off and the west is seeing the real face of Communism and doesn't like it. The alliance of evil between the Communist countries is increasing it's dominance over the west and the west is floundering in panic and doesn't know which way to turn. We are in a Cold War friends and it is time to wake up out of the slumber. It is time to turn to God and his infallible word, be converted, and pray because that is the west's only hope at this point because this is a deadly serious situation which could get far worse. "12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12 KJB
  16. Appeasement never worked with Hitler and the Nazis and it won't work with Communist China and Russia. America and the west are in a new Cold War with the Alliance of Evil but many have not realized it yet. They play hardball. Trying to placate them won't work and may just encourage them to be more aggressive. The west, and Canada especially, is in an extremely difficult position but got itself into it by it's own choice. There are no easy solutions. We are in for a struggle for the long haul and it may not end well.
  17. The book Axis of Evil by retired LT. General Robert Maginnis describes in his book Alliance of Evil how the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation are in alliance and represent the biggest challenge to America and it's western allies that the world has ever faced. Maginnes spent much of his life serving America in high military operations and pentagon military intelligence and has a vast knowledge of world affairs and the threats America and the west face. He took a bullet through his shoulder and managed to survive it. Took part in operations in the Panama with the removal of dictator Noriega, operations in the failed operation in Somalia, and various other operations. He worked in intelligence for top brass as well. He says America and the west are locked in a new cold war with Russia and China. Their aggressive behavior is evident in many ways throughout the west as they have infiltrated all aspects of society and collected vast amounts of information technology, including militarily, and embedded agents and influence throughout our political systems and every facet of society. Their goal is dominance. We can complain and protest as much as we wish, but this is not going to change the situation. They have global ambitions that we may not be able to stop.
  18. Yep, and the Liberals and most politicians and a lot of business people in Canada have had a lot of dealing with China over the years, but it is now coming home to haunt them.
  19. What about the one or two million Uighurs who are suffering rape, forced sterilization, forced abortion, abuse, and possibly death in concentration camps. They are trying to destroy a whole population. Does the world stay silent and do nothing? There are other minority religious groups that have suffered endless persecution, prison, etc. as well yet Canada went ahead and did all kinds of business with China for decades.
  20. I tried to explain that climate change, God and the Bible are all inter-related. God is in control of events. Man cannot control such things as climate change. The fact that Daniel prophesied the coming of Christ in Daniel 9:25 KJB and this was fulfilled centuries later could not be rigged because Daniel lived about 600 years before Christ. Daniel prophesied "25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks." Daniel 9:25 KJB Now, Bible scholars say one week of years refers to 7 years. So if you multiply 7 weeks plus 62 weeks, that is, 69 X 7 = 453 years. From the time Jerusalem was restored and rebuilt was exactly 453 years to the time of Christ's birth. There is no way this is a scam. It is just a plain fact that happened exactly as foretold in the Hebrew Bible five centuries earlier. This proves the authority of the Bible and the fact God inspired men to write it. It is undeniable. Check the prophecy in Isaiah chapter 53. This also is a prophecy about Christ and described what happened to Christ. The prophet Isaiah lived during the time of several kings of Israel mentioned in Isaiah 1:1, believed to be around 740 B.C. or more than 700 years before Christ came. So what does this have to do with climate change or global warming. Plenty. What I showed you proves that Bible is true and God is in control. God mentions nothing about man-made climate change. Climate has always occurred, is a natural change, and is under God's control. No need to run around claiming the sky is falling. There is no climate emergency that we can do anything about.
  21. You missed the fact that the Bible was written over a period of 1,600 years and the prophecies (predictions) were written by the prophets who lived long before the prophecy was fulfilled. The Bible is not one book. It is a collection of many books written by many different prophets and apostles. The Old Testament was completed about 2,400 years ago. So the book with the prophecy about the Messiah was written centuries before Christ came. It's fulfillment is described in the gospels written in the first century A.D. That prophecy was fulfilled hundreds of years after it was given in the book of Daniel. If something is prophesied centuries before it happened by one prophet and then centuries later recorded that it happened, it is clear that it is a fulfilled prophecy. There is no gimmick and no way it was anything but a future event fortold by a writer inspired by God.
  22. Stephen Hawking was a die-hard atheist. He is the last person on earth to listen to. You don't have to give any church any money to investigate and find out where the Bible came from. All you have to do is Google authority of the Bible or Is the Bible authority and start reading some of the articles. You can find that out without spending a cent just by reading about it on the internet. There is lots of evidence in the Bible itself. One is fulfilled prophecy. A prediction about a future event could only be done on a consistent basis if it came from God. The Bible does that. There are many fulfilled prophecies. Google Bible prophecies fulfilled and you will find them. Here is one: "Daniel 9:25 – “So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks of years and sixty-two weeks of years” In this prophecy, Daniel is claiming that there will be 69 weeks of years between the issuing of a decree to rebuild Jerusalem and the appearance of the Messiah. Now keep in mind that this bold prediction came 538 years before Christ was born. Now let’s investigate a little history, OK? In 464 BC, Artaxerxes, a Persian king, ascended to the throne. His twentieth year as king would be 464 BC. Nehemiah, the Jewish cupbearer to King Artaxerxes, was deeply concerned with the reports about the ruined condition of Jerusalem which came about as the result of their being defeated (Nehemiah 1:1-4) and as a result, he petitioned the king: >Nehemiah 2:5,6 – “Send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers’ tombs, that I may rebuild it. So it pleased the king to send me”. Scripture then provides us with the exact date of this decree to restore and to rebuild Jerusalem. According to the scriptures the decree is issued “in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king” (Nehemiah 2:1). The Jewish calendar month was Nisan, and since no day is given, it is reasonable to assume that the date would be understood as the first, the Jewish New Year’s Day. And, in the Julian calendar we presently use, the corresponding date would be March 5, 444 B.C. This was the day on which the decree was issued to restore and rebuild Jerusalem." - List Of Bible Prophecies Fulfilled | Believers Portal
  23. The Big Bang theory is just that a theory. It is faulty for a number of reasons. An explosion does not create order. It creates chaos. The big bang theory does not even attempt to explain where it all came from and how order was created out of chaos. The universe is an orderly creation. The sub atomic particles, energy, molecules and laws of physics all work together. This demonstrates an infinitely high intelligence, or God who created it all. All these particles and laws that govern them could not have come about by a cosmic accident. Science does not begin to address that because there is no explanation apart from God. If you looked into why the Bible is authoritative, you might find out why. But until you do that, we're really beating a dead horse.
  24. The thing is that God created the earth with apparent age at the time he created it. The Bible says he created trees and all creatures. Then he created man. So at the time everything was created, they had to have an age built in. So the rocks and earth would have had an age which may appear old, but actually was created that way in an instant. So that crater you mentioned would likely have been created with the appearance it was 1.849 billion years old. You underestimate the power of God. When he created things, they would have to have an appearance of an age. The alternative is where did everything come from? There is no explanation apart from a Creator.
