    When your name is bush_cheney, two individuals that in my estimation and opinion are responsible for war crimes, I would not talk about Trudeau. Hypocrisy much ?

     

    Still doesn't change Trudeau's self inflicted wounds for blackface.    "Back in Black" is probably Trudeau's favourite AC/DC song.

    In 1986, a nuclear power station in Chernobyl, Ukraine exploded, but I won't hold that against anybody here.

     


  2. PM Justin Trudeau is back in blackface again....kneel for George Floyd !

    Justin Trudeau kneels with protesters during an anti-racism rally in Ottawa - but social media users were quick to remind him of his blackface photos

    • Justin Trudeau took a knee while attending a protest at Parliament Hill in Ottawa
    • The prime minister made a surprise appearance at the rally on Friday afternoon
    • After making the gesture, social media was quick to bring up his use of blackface which emerged in photos last year 
    • During the rally, a heckler was heard shouting 'go home blackface' as he entered
    • Protesters also chanted 'stand up to Trump' after Trudeau's awkward response to the president's tactics

    She doesn't really get going until the last 5 minutes of her rant. 

    And those who watch the first 10 minutes will go, "Huh? Really? She has another gear?"

    Yes. Really. She does.

     

    Candace Owens is well known for her conservative activism, CPAC speeches, Congressional testimony, and outspoken criticism of the "liberal chains" that enslave many African Americans.    She is a problem for the Democratic Party and Black Lives Matter, having swung her support to Trump.

    Critics often dismiss her as an opportunistic "Uncle Tom", but she has become the new face of independent thinking and black conservatism.

    She goes into that other gear at the end of this video:

    Co-incidence perhaps but the worst riots seem all to be in Democrat-controlled states and cities. 

    Some sort of partition of the USA is inevitable in the future. Not this year or next year or even next decade but it is inevitable nevertheless. 

     

    The partition trend has been realized far more often in other nations around the world, and more recently with Brexit (UK/EU).   Support in the U.S. for partition/secession runs less than 15% in some polls.   Puerto Rico is contemplating another referendum for statehood, not separation from the United States.

    There are some groups who want to partition a few states (e.g. California north + south), or New York, but that does not mean leaving the Union.

  5. Meet Prime Minster Justin Trudeau's new American friend....the Reverend Al Sharpton:

     

    Quote

    “The time is changing and I will express it in my eulogy and since you are from Canada, I would not take 21 seconds before saying what I have to say.” said Sharpton in a video shared by Radio-Canada.

    Sharpton was in Minneapolis to deliver a eulogy at the funeral of George Floyd, the black US citizen whose death at the hands of a white local police officer led to anti-racism riots across the United States. These riots have since moved into Canada, some of which have led to violence and vandalism.

    Sharpton, who was previously a presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, also criticized Justin Trudeau last year for his history of wearing blackface.

    The case for Canada continues to strengthen, especially given the tensions we see south of the border and in parts of Europe, as long as our governments don’t get steamrolled by special interests and budgetary frivolity, both of which are hallmarks of Trudeau’s spendthrift identity politics. 

     

    A fractured Canada existed long before Trudeau's reign, and irrespective of what happens in other nations.

    Domestic issues are not going away anytime soon, and may get worse if the border becomes a wall.

    If Klobuchar has a chance, it's because she's so blahhhhh.

     

    Klobuchar has a very small chance now because of her high profile role in not prosecuting police officers:

     

    Quote

    The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody this week has renewed concerns about Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s time as a Hennepin County prosecutor as she is being vetted as a potential running mate for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

    ...Klobuchar did not criminally charge other police involved in the more than two dozen officer-involved fatalities that occurred during her time as prosecutor. She left those decisions to a grand jury, a practice that was common at the time.

  8. The other officer's defense attorneys are already trying to put the blame on Chauvin:

     

    Quote

    “What was [Lane] supposed to do … go up to Mr. Chauvin and grab him and throw him off?” said Gray, arguing that there was no evidence to charge his client.

    Kueng’s attorney, Thomas Plunkett, also attempted to distance his client from Chauvin’s actions.

    “At all times Mr. Kueng and Mr. Lane turned their attention to that 19-year veteran …” Plunkett said. “[Kueng] was trying — they were trying to communicate that this situation needs to change direction.”

    I've only seen video of where he was being frog marched across the street to the other squad car and the two cops call for backup because apparently something happened in a bit that was cut from the video, then the two are struggling to get him in the car and the video cuts out again.

     

    No....all we have seen so far is the detention on the street and obscured struggle in the back of the squad.   Police body cameras should provide a direct view of the police actions, but they haven't been released yet (evidence for trials).

    Minneapolis police are required to wear and activate their body cameras.

    Every region of Canada needs every other region. If we fail to stand together, we ALL lose a beautiful country. Politics is a fun sport, but not worth wrecking the country over. With apologies to our dear friend Bush-Cheney, we love you dearly but we do not want to join you and that would be the end result.

     

    No need to apologize for Canada's history of fragmented politics and separatism, or constant threat of being "Americanized".

    Because the "end result" would not be up to Canada anyway.     Americans don't really care much about your Clarity Act.

    It's a police brutality story, and it might be a "why the f did that guy still have a badge story", but I doubt that reason will prevail long enough to make sense of any of this. 

     

    Yes...it is a police brutality story that should be prosecuted...but there will be other ramifications if/when a jury verdict finds any of the four officers "not guilty" of any charges, a la Rodney King in 1992 (Los Angeles).   The defense and police union will allege that George Floyd was resisting arrest in the back of the squad car, as there would have been no other obvious reason to pull him out to the ground.

    Well that's the 2nd "Gentle Giant" myth blown to hell.

    I thought that he was arrested for passing a counterfeit $20 bill. Was he pulled over for driving while intoxicated?

     

    He was detained and questioned for passing funny money, but appears to resist arrest in the back of the squad car, which lead to excessive force homicide by the cops.   We don't know if he was arrested for driving while under the influence (DUI).

    The Daily Mail (UK) has reported on Floyd's record, but U.S. media won't go there because it is incendiary background information that detracts from the police misconduct.   But the "Gentle Giant" myth was bogus to start with.

    EXCLUSIVE: A new start turns to a tragic end for George Floyd, who moved to Minneapolis determined to turn his life around after being released from prison in Texas

    • George Floyd moved to Minneapolis in 2014 for a fresh start after being released from prison in Houston, Texas following an arrest for aggravated robbery 
    • Floyd had turned his life around but died on Monday after a white officer knelt on his neck while arresting him for allegedly paying with a fake $20 bill
    • None of the officers could have been aware of Floyd's more than a decade-old criminal history at the time of the arrest 
    • The 46-year-old had left behind his past in Houston after being released from prison stemming from a 2007 robbery 
    • He plead guilty to entering a woman’s home, pointing a gun at her stomach and searching the home for drugs and money, according to court records
    • Floyd was sentenced to 10 months in jail for having less than one gram of cocaine in a December 2005 arrest 
    • He had previously been sentenced to eight months for the same offense, stemming from an October 2002 arrest 
    • Floyd was arrested in 2002 for criminal trespassing and served 30 days in jail
    • He had another stint for a theft in August 1998

    If it's there, show it. 

    No one has shown evidence of racism specific to this case.

     

    How about this "racist" black and blind man who dares to post about George Floyd's criminal record and drug use ?    Would it would be "racist" for media to disclose "Gentle Giant" Floyd's record and autopsy toxicology report in the wake of the excessive force homicide by Minneapolis police ?

    Which black Americans? The ones who are cops themselves... or how about the retired cop who was killed by looters at a pawn shop?

     

    Indeed...."black Americans" are not a monolithic block that universally thinks cops hate them.   In many "black communities", the need and demand for good police services and law enforcement is even higher.   

    The Black Panther Party tried this tactic back in the turbulent 1960's and early 1970's....but ultimately lost black support.  

    "Kill the Pigs" will only get you so far.

    .... The chances are, everyone will manage to reach our destination but you will still be watching his every move like a hawk. 

    Does that help you understand why we seem to be obsessed by current US Presidential politics. I know some will be afraid, if they change drivers, the next guy might fall asleep at the wheel.

     

    It's another creative analogy (I have read many from Canada over the years), but it happens regardless of who may be the U.S. president...going back decades.  I agree that the cross border psyche and media believes that the U.S. has real and imagined influence over Canada, even as Ottawa roars about sovereign independence.    And it has gotten worse as Canada ingests even more American political media and culture...by choice.

    Statistically, you are far more likely to have an incident/accident with your fellow passenger car drivers...better watch them too.   It's not the size of the truck...it is the size of what Canada wants from inside the truck.

    Mexico is less obsessed with Trump...but like Canada, also wants what is inside the truck.

    It's nice to see what kind of 'leader' Trump really is.  The nation is in a crisis and he hides in a bunker.  That's your guy!

    Your next reply would most likely been about Trudeau.

     

    Trudeau is your problem, not mine....but you choose to make Trump your problem as well for reasons only you understand.

    I have seen plenty of President Trump....he was at the Cape to watch the Space X Crew Dragon launch with many other Americans...and spoke directly to the current "crisis".

    Canada can only watch...as usual.
