  1. While the west is squandering it's resources and wealth on fighting the hoax of man-made climate change, Russia and China are building military power which will rival or push them ahead of America and west. Get the book Alliance of Evil. Let's not forget it was the U.N. which is largely controlled by Communist countries which forced this global warming agenda on the west.
  2. So you only consider left wing sources as honest? That's a surprise because it is the left wing that kills millions of unborn babies and supports biological men using women's washrooms and changing rooms. These are the immoral people you trust. On the race for corruption and immorality, I think the Democrats won the race long ago.
  3. How about this? "4. Hunter Biden’s firm scored a $1.5 billion deal with the Bank of China only days after his father paid an official visit to the country. As Peter Schweizer, a senior contributor at Breitbart News, revealed in his bestselling book — Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends — Hunter Biden inked a multi-billion dollar deal with a subsidiary of the state-owned Bank of China in 2013. The deal, which was the first of its kind, created a private equity fund, Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) to invest Chinese money overseas. The timing of the lucrative deal has been brought into question as it came only 12 days after Hunter visited China with his father aboard Air Force Two. Officially, the then-vice president was visiting the country amid escalating tensions over islands in the South China Sea and decided to bring his granddaughter and son along. In a March 2018 interview with Breitbart News Tonight, however, Schweizer detailed the political machinations that preceded Hunter Biden’s $1.5 billion venture with China. Schweizer said: Since its creation, BHR has invested heavily in energy and defense projects across the globe. As of June, Hunter Biden is still involved with BHR, sitting on its board of directors and owning a minority stake of the fund estimated to be worth more than $430,000."
  4. This just shows how difficult it is to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Following these health directives would be extremely difficult and unlikely in many cases. It is probably a nearly impossible request for many people. Sad reality.
  5. I don't see any similarity there. You didn't read the article and see how the conflicts of interest and large amounts of money were paid to Hunter Biden in the different connections. Don't waste our time if you can't be bothered to read the information.
  6. You didn't read the five ways Hunter benefited greatly from his political connections through Joe Biden, not just when he was a Senator but also later when he became a vice President. Corruption. and conflicts of interest is standard fare. They have a long history of milking the system.
  7. "Joe Biden’s youngest son, Hunter, has a long and muddled history of profiting from business interests tied to the former vice president’s political influence." "2. Hunter Biden was on MBNA’s payroll while Joe Biden was writing bankruptcy reform legislation. In the early-2000s, Hunter Biden remained on MBNA’s payroll as a consultant while his father was writing and pushing the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. The arrangement, which did not become public until after the law was passed, started in 2001 after Hunter Biden had left his position in the Commerce Department. Hunter Biden was paid monthly consulting fees, with some claiming they ranged upwards of $100,000, to advise the company on online banking issues. The 2005 bankruptcy law tightened regulations to make it extremely difficult to declare bankruptcy. The law was heavily favored by MBNA and other giants in the banking and finance sectors. Many consumer protection advocates, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), have claimed the bill benefited special interests at the expense of consumers. Some have even suggested the law only served to hasten and aggravate the recession of the late 2000s. As previously reported by the New York Times, Biden worked against many of his own fellow Democrats in Congress to ensure the final version of the bill was free of provisions opposed by companies such as MBNA. Biden “was one of five Democrats in March 2005 who voted against a proposal to require credit card companies to provide more effective warnings to consumers about the consequences of paying only the minimum amount due each month,” the Times noted." The mainstream media carefully avoided these scandals during the 2020 election campaign. Five Times Hunter Biden’s Dealings Were Conflict of Interest for Joe Biden (breitbart.com)
  8. "Climate preacher/scientist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez predicted recently that “We’re like… the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.” You can add that to the spectacularly wrong predictions made this year around the time of Earth Day 2019. Finally, think about this question, posed by Ronald Bailey in 2000: What will Earth look like when Earth Day 60 rolls around in 2030? Bailey predicts a much cleaner, and much richer future world, with less hunger and malnutrition, less poverty, and longer life expectancy, and with lower mineral and metal prices. But he makes one final prediction about Earth Day 2030: “There will be a disproportionately influential group of doomsters predicting that the future–and the present–never looked so bleak.” In other words, the hype, hysteria and spectacularly wrong apocalyptic predictions will continue, promoted by the virtue signalling “environmental grievance hustlers” like AOC." aei.org
  9. Canada is on a slippery slope. Since they have already brought in MAID in 2016, now they are going through the process of removing restrictions and making it easy to get and the government is openly saying they are making it possible for people with mental problems to get MAID. This will put countless people in Canada, including handicapped people, at much greater risk. This demolishes the age long, and Judeo-Christian principle of the sanctity of human life. Holland went this route years ago and now it is reported that 20% of those who receive doctor-assisted dying are receiving it without the person's permission or request for it. This is a slippery slope and we can expect the same kind of thing in Canada. With the ever-increasing cost of the public health care system, we can easily see where this will lead.
  10. Canada is still a democracy but to a limited degree. It is run by a small borg of elite located in the Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto triangle and is to some degree an oligarchy. True democracy would reject a leader who has had repeated ethics violations. In Canada ethics doesn't seem to carry much weight. The morally deficient masses still vote them in. Charisma, name, and where they're from has more weight.
  11. Incidentally, I inadvertently didn't post that part but I agree it should be mentioned too. Whichever government did it, I don't agree with it. My criticism was directed at government, period. I am against that decision. But I wonder why the Liberals allowed it to continue the past five years. Why didn't they stop it? Conservatives were no better than Liberals at protecting Canadians from China. Didn't the Liberals spend a vast amount of money on the Asia Infrastructure Bank too? Helping fund projects in China? But Liberals seem to have a special love for Communist China.
  12. I don't think so. Without America there would be no freedom. We would all be living under either Hitler or Communist rule. the wars in Korea and Vietnam were to try to fend off the expansion of Communism, especially the Korean war. Vietnam was more debatable and probably America should not have gone in there. They lost it and it would have been better to just let N. Vietnam take over S. Vietnam. But the thinking at the time may have been that the Communists were planning to take over southeast Asia if they were not stopped. Turned out they never went further than S. Vietnam. But that was probably because they had no navy and would not be able to cross the water to other southeast countries. But hindsight is always better than foresight. I still believe our freedom and democracy in the west with America leading the defense if far preferable to a Communist dictatorship with no freedom. Communist countries do not respect human rights or basic freedoms.
  13. Microsoft News has a report from the Canadian Press: "OTTAWA — Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says he assumes security authorities signed off on an arrangement to allow a company owned by a Chinese police force to run Canada's visa application centre in Beijing." ..."Questions have been raised about the centre since The Globe and Mail reported earlier this month that its operation has been subcontracted to Beijing Shuangxiong Foreign Service Company, which is owned by the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau." What is the matter with our government that they would allow such a thing to happen. They allowed Canada's Visa application centre to be run by police in China which handed it over to another company in China. Stunning news. What a disaster our government is in not protecting Canadians.
  14. Greta should be in school, not being a tool for the environmental radicals or the UN. She had been assessed as having some mental issues, such as obsessive compulsive disorder by a psychiatrist in Germany. If you want to believe in a global warming calamity, that's your choice. I don't believe in it. I prefer to believe in God who created us and trust he has the climate under control. Another fact pointing to God is the existence of good and evil in the world. If there were no God, there would be no accountability for all the good and evil going on in the world. That wouldn't make sense. There has to be some reckoning or accountability for what humans are doing in the world. The Bible teaches us there will be judgment. That doesn't mean climate doesn't change. It does. But I doubt man is causing it. Better to adapt to climate change than to try to stop it. We can't stop it any more than we can stop the earth from revolving.
  15. Altai my dear. No American would want anything to do with spying or terrorist groups in Turkey. It has no value to Americans.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
