The incredible rise of a lightweight


The rise of Justin Trudeau has been like the rise of a helium balloon.  A celebrity lightweight with an inflated ego and sense of entitlement - arising entirely from his accident of birth - Justin was released and wafted aloft by the LPC and a liberal dominated mainstream media that has never stopped idolizing, mythologizing and worshipping his father Pierre as their secular god.  The son of "god", Justin, born on Christmas day no less, has been afforded similar adoration - as a Liberal Party messiah.  The liberal media propaganda machine inflated Justin's image and minimized or ignored his gaffes while relentlessly and viciously demonizing the "Nixonian" enemy, Stephen Harper.   That's how a completely unqualified lightweight, the lightest in Canadian history, came to be elected Prime Minister last night.


Having the Liberals undeservedly returned to power from third place is bad enough, but having to accept the foppish boy-Justin as my Prime Minister is absolutely galling.  You can't blame Justin, it's not his fault he was born a Trudeau, but to think that someone, anyone, with a resume as thin as his could go from backbench MP to party leader to Prime Minister on his first try, is incredible.

He didn't even hold a cabinet position...nothing, except travelled to 90 countries, smoked pot, tried hash and magic mushroom spaghetti. Now he is all over the place today gloating....making speeches about fear and division which is what he is doing by bashing PM Harper today. Someone should tell him the election is over now. CBC is gone silly, gushing all day about their hero Trudeau. All day coverage of his every move. He's a media idol and everything is perfect with Trudeau according to CBC. World newspapers are having a lot of laughs about him today. Now we can wait for all those promises to be dropped except dope and carbon taxes. Just wait ...the ax will drop. No more news for me.

Harper didn't hold a cabinet post either.

Just a little bitter. Perhaps you need a soothing cup of herbal tea today.

I don't know if it's "bitter" but it is certainly deeply concerning when so many Canadians uncritically accept the demonization of a decent man who gave us decent government. And, on top of that, they think this is a perfectly reasonable way to win an election. I begin to understand how a country can come to adopt fascism.

Trudeau had his first press scrum with the media...took off after 15 minutes. Seems Obama has him bamboozled on pulling the planes from fighting Isis. Back peddling with the press. Seemed to be a lot of back tracking with Natives...they are putting the pressure on when(one year , two) for his promised inquiry into murdered and missing women...WHEN??? Stalling answer. Many more...all answers are must talk to provinces for everything. The guy is a lightweight...has no clue and was shown in his "open govt." media scrum. No questions now about his hair...over the head stuff for Trudeau. Canadians will be missing PM Harper...the smartest man in any room. Pot heads and media elect Trudeau just not ready...time will prove this. What a joke.

Why is the media still crawling all over PM Harper today and bashing and demonizing him. They got Trudeau elected, so why are they still KICKING a guy when he's down? Is it so no one will question Trudeau now on all those promises he has no answers for? Like media.....get lost...give it up, back up, get some class...YOU GOT YOUR GUY ELECTED ON HOPE!!!!! Let the fun begin.

Of course they're stalling answers. He's totally out of his depth. He needs to buy time so that he can run back to his handlers to be told what to say. I thought puppets were installed only in third world countries. Welcome to the New World Order.

One thing I find puzzling is the bill C-51 was supposed to be so bad, introduced to protect Canadians from isis terrorists, yet was shunned by lefties, demonstrations against it, YET Trudeau supported it and voted for it, YET Trudeau got voted in. LOL....guess POT won out...what a bunch of un-informed voters and hyprocrites. I want the CBC to talk about Trudeau's promises...not deflecting by bashing PM Harper,(PM harper is out,,,thanks media) so we won't ask questions on Liberal's deficit, bloated , numbers don't add up, raised taxes and more.... isn't it great for the Liberals when they have CBC to protect their backs. Can't last forever.

Yes, it can last forever. Analysing the Canadian electorate is a fool's errand. The Canadian electorate doesn't respond to being analysed; they respond to being analized. When the tax hikes come they'll gladly drop their trousers, grab their ankles and take a solid pounding from their Liberal masters. And, in spite of what you think, they'll conveniently develop amnesia during the next election and mark a big X next to their local Liberal candidates all the while fumbling with their belt buckles. As we've seen time and again in this country, you can get away with anything if you're the 'natural governing party of Canada'. (natural governing party of Canada is a trademarked symbol of the Liberal Party of Canada @Copyright from the beginning of creation until after the coming of Jesus Christ, all rights reserved.)

I see you're not fully through the 5 steps of grieving yet. To move you along, let me nudge you with this: Harper & Co. bet the farm on the 'not ready' smear campaign (of course with a little money left to blow the niqab dog-whistle, and then some fear-mongering amongst our seniors...) and the 'lightweight' held his own in the debates, and stayed out of the ditch the conservatives stayed in, and even sympathetic voters were turned off by the tone of Harper's campaign.

So, basically, Trudeau got a majority because Harper's campaign choices gave it to him.

Cynical observation is not one of the Kubler-Ross stages of grief.

Let's see how ready Junior is. I can't wait for him to throw down with Vlad Putin. I'm willing to bet there's enough room in Margaret's quiff to hide her little boy until 2019.

It was hard not to notice that many media hounds, Dippers and Libs, the same despicable jerks who relentlessly and unfairly demonized Harper for years as "icy" and "mean-spirited", continued the bashing immediately after his defeat. These completely un-self-aware dolts see themselves as "sensitive, caring and compassionate" but are actually far more mean and vicious than they've attempted to portray Harper.

Christie Blatchford writes about Harper hatred in today's Post (about the only readable column there):

"The good news about this election is that more people seemed genuinely engaged in it. ... The ugly aspect of it was the visceral loathing for Harper. ... The woman in the liquor store Monday who, when asked by the clerk if she’d voted yet, said she was on her way to do so and added, unbidden, “Harper has to go; fascist".

"He was nothing of the sort. Ibbitson
[in his new book] carves a new one for pretentious gits like John Ralston Saul, the intellectual and spouse of former governor-general Adrienne Clarkson, who once wrote that “Napoleon would have approved” of Harper’s omnibus bills and that “Mussolini would have been jealous.”

Anyone who isn't a dope head or worse, a "Liberal", knows Justine is an imbecile with as much intellect as a really smelly fart. Even the "Liberal" party knew he was a light weight and an embarrassment thats why they pushed him to the back benches where the feckless fop could pretend to be a politician and grow various styles of absurd facial hair. Trudopo is an idiot! Trudipshit was elected King of Trudopia by the low info twit mob, aided and abetted by a vicious, corrupt, compliant Media with the help of the Obama dirty tricks squad from Chicago. Americans interfering in a Canadian election should worry Canadians but lets face it, Canadians are far too stupid and uninformed to care, the end justifies the means for the leftists. Now the country is officially a joke and will remain a joke for at least the next 15 years. Enjoy the decline Canadians you asked for it.

Harper bashing has a limited life span; even the media party know that, the guy left us in good economic shape. Since the young Trudeau suffers from foot in mouth disease his handlers will pull back on the cosy relationship with the media in the next 6-12 months. What scares me is the guy is the type of person whose opinions are formed by the last person he talked to. Wait until he goes to this "Climate Change" conference in Dec...he'll try in one swoop to "right all the wrongs" of Harper. Trudeau will come back with all sorts of new tax ideas and sign whatever whacky climate treaty is put before him, all in order to "restore" Canada's global reputation as a pussy. We're in for an interesting ride folks.
