The Trade Deal from America’s Perspective is: “A Win”

The Niagara Independent, October 5, 2018 – Tuesday morning the CBC ran a headline story: “‘Yay!’: How the Canadians won the argument that opened the door to a NAFTA deal” reporting a confident Prime Minister Justin Trudeau saying, “There was [on Saturday] a sense things were falling into place.” In most news reports this week Canadians have been reassured that PM Trudeau and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland (dubbed “the warrior princess”) were victorious in wrestling U.S. President Donald Trump to concede to Canadian terms on an improved NAFTA deal. That is the Canadian story. But, how is this 11th hour…

Freedom of the Press

South of the Canadian border there is a raging war over the legitimacy of media organizations. There is a growing disrespect and a new disregard for traditional news sources – and it is being fueled by politicians, corporations, and news media itself.  Our mainstream media is assaulted on all fronts for its bias, uneven and “yellow” journalism. The public is increasingly doubtful that news organs are providing the facts of a matter. The end result of this assault is a growing cynicism and rejection of traditional media. Today, the popular and overused phrase for any news item that may not…

The Canada-U.S. Trade Talks Saga

The Canada-U.S. Trade Talks Saga is a three-part series first printed in The Niagara Independent.   Part One In Ottawa, there are two prevailing threads of thought on what has become the never-ending saga of the Canada-U.S. Trade Talks. One is rallying behind Prime Minister Trudeau and supporting the Liberal Government’s attempt to reason with an unpredictable U.S. President. The second is highly critical, suggesting that the Liberals are purposely sabotaging the negotiations for their own domestic political gains. The next three columns will review the political gamesmanship between Canada and the U.S. and assess what all the public posturing may…

The Canada-U.S. Trade Talks Saga (Part One)

The Niagara Independent, July 6, 2018 – In Ottawa, there are two prevailing threads of thought on what has become the never-ending saga of the Canada-U.S. Trade Talks.

President Trump’s health care package

News Flash:  The American Medical Association has weighed in on Trump’s health care package:   The Allergists were in favour of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.   The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.   Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was labouring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.   Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Pediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!”   The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could…

Dr. Seuss and The Trump

Here’s a poem By George received last evening – anonymously written – however we can be certain the clever poet is a Democrat.    In a land where the states are united, they claim, in a sky-scraping tower adorned with his name, lived a terrible, horrible, devious chump, the bright orange miscreant known as the Trump.   This Trump he was mean, such a mean little man, with the tiniest heart and two tinier hands, and a thin set of lips etched in permanent curl, and a sneer and a scowl and contempt for the world.   He looked down…

Kellyanne Conway

In a landslide election, Donald J. Trump shocked liberals and republicans alike when he defeated Hillary Clinton in a historic, unprecedented win. And to say that people were astonished at Donald Trump’s victory would be the understatement of the century.  But behind Donald Trump’s victory, stood one woman. So who is this unique lady responsible for helping Trump secure the highest office in the land?    Who is Kellyanne Conway? Just weeks after Donald John Trump was elected 45th president of the United States of America, his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway speaks out about the real reason why he won.  …

First Lady Melania Trump

Despite being married to the most controversial presidential candidate in American history, Melania Trump remains an enigma. The mystery that comes with her reserved personality makes Melania an easy target for liberals as articles labeling her as a “mannequin” and condemning her silence are published daily.  Although the famous former model seems to have it all, Melania’s testimony tells the story of someone who’s struggled against all odds – and overcame.   Melania Trump has graced the covers of the most prestigious fashion industry magazines. But like many Americans today, Melania’s success was the result of a courageous work ethic…

Donald Trump – bons mots

By George Journal has selected bons mots of Donald Trump – the best of Donald Trump, the man (before he takes office as President of the United States). Our country, our people, and our laws have to be our top priority. Leaders, true leaders, take responsibility for the success of the team, and understand that they must also take responsibility for the failure. Unite to win. Divide to conquer. What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate. Sheer persistence is the difference between success and failure. Get going. Move forward.…
