  1. Nunes: Trump team under surveillance during Obama administration.

      Funny. That says they may have been "incidentally" caught in surveillance. I guess you don't understand that means they were doing surveillance of others (probably Russian spies) while they were meeting with the Trump team. You can try to spin that so it looks good for your traitor, but I think it just means you can't say anything bad about Putin either.

      Funnier: Story stands as written...traitor Clinton lovers will just have to deal with it.

      If Trump talks to a spy who is under a FISA warrant, that doesn't mean he's under surveillance; it means he was incidentally surveilled. He should really refrain from talking to spies if he doesn't like that.

      I'd tell the US, if they quit starting these invasions, war or whatever u want to call them, there wouldn't be a need for MORE money, if u start it, u pay for it!

      Topaz: Mattis is referring to our very poor record in up-keeping our military and thus our NATO/NORAD commitments.

      We agreed to these things.

      He’s 100% right.  You’d think we’d learn our lesson.  Somebody needs to put Canada first again.  Make Canada great again!

      "Many educators are uncomfortable with the idea of getting up and saying we need a military where individuals are trained to — if necessary — kill others," he said.

      The federal political culture for decades has also contributed to a collective amnesia.

      "Ultimately, the horrible thing about all of this is that we've had the luxury of always depending upon the Americans to take care of anything that is really nasty. So, therefore, we can pretend the military is there as a warm and fuzzy thing," Huebert said.

      The current government's focus on the so-called softer aspects of defence — peacekeeping and gender equality — could backfire if a serious conflict erupts, he said.

      You have to wonder whether the Liberals are vying for the Nobel peace prize with their emphasis on peacekeeping.

      Too bad with that "genocide" term.....the report  has lost a great deal of credibility, imho.

      If they can outrageously exaggerate loosely with  the term "genocide" - what else are exaggerations in that report?

      If the people who made those report does not understand the meaning of the term - that puts a QUESTION TO THE WHOLE REPORT!

      I smell a set-up.   That term is deliberately  used for a reason.

      No point watching folks count votes. Morning will tell. 

      Either way...results will be interesting. 

      The Dem's platform seems simply: We have no leader and no platform...but...let's throw a wrench into all this progress. Lots of folks out there like smashing and breaking these days. And there is no wrench shortage.

      Can't read the darned thing properly, it wants me  to pay...   OK got it, used another browser.   It's a good one, and yes they are a danger to democracy.

      I took the liberty of using your link in another thread.

      Any mob is a danger to society. Social media just makes it a lot easier to be a member of one.

      Funny, but Trudeau imposed almost the same 220% duty on U.S. gypsum board last year.   As the seniors say, "Payback is a bitch !"

      Why are US subsidies to companies like Boeing that support the war criminals, terrorists who murder their own people okay? Folks from the US just can't help but be stunning hypocrites.
