EDMONTON (LifeSiteNews) – Alberta Premier Jason Kenney called some Canadian conservatives lunatics” and “kooky people” while speaking to his caucus staff on Tuesday. 

Unfortunately for him, he was being recorded.  

Kenney told his staff that he had seriously considered leaving his role as the leader of the United Conservative Party (UCP) before Christmas. But he also said that the Conservatives who want to see him replaced are angry people who subscribe to conspiracy theories and COVID policy skepticism. 

“I don’t say this stuff publicly, [but] these are just kooky people generally,” the premier said. 

He added that “lunatics are trying to take over the asylum.” 

“I will not let this mainstream conservative party become an agent for extreme, hateful, intolerant, bigoted and crazy views,” he declared.  

Ultimately, Kenney decided to stay on, he said, so as not to hand the far-left Alberta New Democratic Party a victory.  

“What’s the easiest path for me? Just to take a walk. I don’t need this job. I could go to the private sector, have my evenings, weekends off,” the premier told the gathering. 

He added: “I thought a lot about it, honestly, before Christmas, and I decided that would be grossly irresponsible because if we were to have a leadership election in this context, it would, I think, permanently divide us [and] hand the NDP the next election.” 

A whistle-blower present at the meeting secretly recorded Kenney’s remarks and made them available to a number of Canadian media outlets, including Global News and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).  

Kenney, who has come under heavy scrutiny from Alberta conservatives for his flip-flopping on COVID policies, faces a leadership review in the coming weeks.

On April 3rd, Hungarians will go to the polls to decide whether to re-elect Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz-Chrisitan Democrat (KDNP) coalition or to elect a coalition of leftist parties, now led by a wayward "Catholic," Peter Marki-Zay, who says he would allow homosexual "marriage."

On the same day, the country will decide whether or not to approve a momentous child protection law, already passed by parliament, which would protect children from being sexualized by LGBT propaganda in schools and by pornography in the mass media.

Please SIGN and PLEDGE to pray that Hungary will vote to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.

Since passage of the bill, the fake news outlets from Europe to America have predictably lied about the contents of the bill, and attempted to manufacture outrage about the same. And, the corrupt European Union also joined the attack on Hungary's efforts to protect children.

But now, the Hungarian people will have their say. And, they need our prayerful support.

Please SIGN and PLEDGE to pray that Hungary will vote to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.

The law specifically prohibits showing pornographic material or content portraying homosexuality or transgenderism to minors under the age of 18. Other measures include a registry of sex offenders, regulations on sexual education, and stronger policies against child pornography.

Who could be against these proactive, common sense measures to protect the innocence of children?

Peter Marki-Zay, and the left-liberal bloc he heads, is against the law, and has said that his leftist coalition will "immediately repeal this terrible act," if elected in April.

But, thankfully, the vast majority of Hungarians actually support the law.

In a recent survey, 69% of Hungarians said they disagreed with Marki-Zay when asked if the Child Protection Act should be repealed.

Now, let's provide the prayerful support Hungarians need, and beg the Lord to inspire them to get out and vote to protect their children.

Please SIGN and PLEDGE to pray that Hungary will vote to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.

Thank you!

A record number of people have signed up to vote in the leadership event, which Kenney used as an excuse to switch from in person to mail-in ballots. 

More than 15,000 people have signed up to vote in the coming leadership review, compared to the usual 3000. The minimum bar for Kenney to remain leader is to have a 50 per cent share of the votes. According to the Kenney campaign, roughly 50 percent of the 15,000 registered have purchased their first UCP membership in order to vote in this coming review. 

Professional ice hockey legend Theo Fleury tweeted that Kenney needed to “admit” he was “done.” 

One of Kenney’s former campaign organizers, David Parker, said that “most of the people [who] are signing up to vote against Jason Kenney are people who used to work for him.”  

“[Kenney] is not trusted by anyone in this province, whether you’re left or right. And I don’t think we should continue having a leader that Albertans can’t trust,” he added.
