An examination of our useful idiots in Ottawa

There is no clearer description of our current federal government. Instead of being driven by the interests and needs of Canadians, Prime Minister Trudeau and his minions are driven by outside influences including UN agencies and foreign funded, non-government organizations (NGOs) working for foreign interests.

From the environment to pipelines to climate change, government policy is written by foreigners in the interests of foreigners. We are governed by Liberal panderers unable to lead or to make coherent and useful policies. The SNC-Lavalin scandal arose out of government pandering to big business and its financially supportive friends. That is corruption. The Vice Admiral Norman scandal arose from attempted pandering to competing interests in the ship building sector. That is corruption.

These are not wild accusations. Please take time to read this in THE CALGARY HERALD.

We watched the SNC Lavalin and Mark Norman scandals play out in front of us and they are real, tangible evidence of unethical government actions. We have been aware of foreign funded non-government organizations (NGOs) driving environmental protests and the whole discussion on climate change, environment and pipelines for decades.

Instead of shutting down the foreign funded NGOs and creating policy made in Canada for Canadians, our government is complicit in accommodating these influencers. No one believes that the Gretta Thunberg show is not the product of powerful corporations with deep pockets looking after their interests. Our government and the media played up this public relations show as if Thunberg was a reincarnation of Joan of Arc. She is the Charlie McCarthy of the environmental lobby. (For younger readers, McCarthy was famous ventriloquist Edgar Bergen’s wooden dummy.)      

The powers behind Thunberg are investors in green technology who stand to make millions in government grants to research improvements in sustainable energy development. Governments make these grants to show that they are environment friendly and working hard for people.

Germany, an acknowledged technology giant, was confident that it could use its technical powers to switch from petroleum to “clean energy” and meet Paris Accord targets with ease. That was overly optimistic, and Germany has since admitted that it cannot meet Paris targets.

The notion that the world can change from petroleum-driven energy to wind and solar power in a few years is insane. The first industrial revolution occurred between 1760 and 1840 or 80 years. The second industrial revolution occurred between 1870 and 1920 or fifty years. They are evolutions rather than revolutions.

Our government is populated by people suffering arrested development, chasing concepts created by others, like buying the most recent video games to try out. Their inability to rationally apply critical thinking to how their adopted ideologies will impact the nation and its residents is destroying a once potential powerhouse.

The damage done by this Prime Minister and his Laurentian Elite is reaching a critical stage. If we do not counter this clique of crooks and pivot to turn loose our innovative potential we may never recover. We need a clean sweep of the halls of power and need to ensure the next government fulfills its obligation to govern for the benefit of all Canadians.
