Stop Trudeau’s Reckless Climate Plans That Could Spark Food Shortages! Contact your Canadian MP & Senators NOW.

(PJ Media) – When I survey the current roster of those who have been empowered to govern Canada, it is hard to avoid the onset of severe depression. None are serious people, none even remotely competent, all are driven by the ideological drivel of the day, and they are to a man and woman decoupled from the ordinary folk who make – or made – this country run.

Moreover, beginning with the prime minister and descending to the least member of cabinet, these are people who seem to have no idea what real work and economic survival consist of. Passing legislation on climate change, health policies, agriculture, energy, and supply-and-manufacturing sectors that almost inevitably tend to harm the prospects of the actual people affected while the legislators themselves are protected from the ravages of their virtue comprises the trademark of the parasitic class, which disqualifies the present bunch from serving in their official capacity. (It is only fair to mention parenthetically an astronaut and a hockey goaltender, but neither now serves in cabinet, and neither was especially distinguished.)

The fact is that the sitting (and former) crop are mainly “professionals” – lawyers, journalists, investment bankers, etc. – who have never or rarely grown callouses wielding shovels and hoes and hammers and jack drills, have never had to rely on the seasons for a living, have never put out a fire or laid down a sewer pipe, have never balanced on a girder fifty stories up or operated a crane or driven a taxi or slaughtered a pig, have never or rarely run a business or striven to build a commercial empire and have certainly never driven a truck, let alone a rig. Hands-on experience is alien to them.

As Rex Murphy writes in a National Post column skewering this nouveau peerage, “They do not farm; they are not grocery clerks; they do not fish; they are not carpenters.” Indeed, they don’t do much, though, of course, they do a lot of harm.

Our prime minister, benefitting from a family endowment, is a case in point. A temporary-substitute-high school-instructor gig is not a job. My landscaper remembers Trudeau as a sub at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in Vancouver, reading a magazine behind his desk as the students worked on some prepared assignment. “He didn’t teach us much,” my informant said. Tucker Carlson is even less impressed, describing Trudeau as a “brain dead prime minister who is effectively a Chinese lackey,” no different, really, from U.S President Joe Biden.

Nevertheless, I am told that Trudeau remains popular. Perhaps, though his popularity appears to be waning. Complicit newspapers have recently produced articles and clips of Trudeau being joyfully mobbed by supporters and acolytes at the Calgary Stampede but neglect to tell us that what we are watching is a staged Liberal Party klatch while Albertans in the background cry traitor.

The point is that our leaders are not leaders in any substantive sense of the word. They do not form part of the world they presume to govern. They are not steeped in the particulars – the constraints, the drudgeries, the anxieties – of the working lives their ministries seek to control. In far too many cases, they are drones and leeches, flunkies and sycophants, barnacles on the ship of state who somehow find themselves in the wheelhouse.

The unbridgeable difference between the rulers and the ruled in much of the Western world, of which Canada is arguably the poster child, can be summed up in two divergent works of art. Grant Wood’s American Gothic represents the hard-working, salt-of-the-earth, dedicated, and often grim laboring people, heralds of rural values, who provide the sustenance and the ethos that keep a country going.

If you are not aware of the foreign security threats implicated in the "Hunter Biden Laptop Story" — and what they might mean for America's national security and foreign geopolitical affairs — that’s by design. 

You were never meant to discover the contents compromising President Joe Biden, and for good reason. The mainstream media kept you ignorant on purpose.  

In fact, the New York Post was censored by Twitter, Facebook, and all of Big Tech for even breaking the story that Hunter Biden’s laptop existed. 

The New York Times, Washington Post, and the entire mainstream media called any reference to the story “Russian disinformation." 

THAT’S WHY AMERICA MUST INSIST THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIDEN FAMILY AND THE CONTENTS OF HUNTER’S LAPTOP! 

SIGN: Tell the Mainstream Media that viewers demand transparency on the Bidens NOW!

Enough is enough — America refuses to be kept wondering about our compromised national security, corrupt sweetheart business deals, and pay-to-play schemes detailed in the Hunter Biden Laptop. 

LIFESITENEWS EXPOSED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY HERE 

“Polling taken in April shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the president has been compromised by his family’s shady business dealings with China,” LifeSiteNews reported on July 1, 2022.  

Even CNN has finally begun to admit that the Hunter Biden Laptop is a serious problem

  • Illegal gun purchase
  • Sweetheart foreign Ukraine deals 
  • Political access to (then) Vice-President Joe Biden 
  • Federal probes and investigations  

Voters MUST know for whom they are voting. Sound the alarm with our new petition! SIGN TODAY! 

The First Amendments protects a Free Press to report the truth and protect the American people — but the mainstream media has betrayed its viewers, spinning pro-communist and pro-globalist narratives that are HURTING voters! 

Voters MUST learn about President Joe Biden’s compromised business dealings with China, Russia, Ukraine, and so many others — all pointing to the Hunter Biden Laptop. 

DEMAND THE TRUTH: WE WILL NO LONGER BE MISLED BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!  

Media executives must learn that their viewership will continue tanking as long as executives run cover for their far-left base.  

Tell media executives that you will NO LONGER watch or trust their network until they fully reveal the contents of the Hunter Biden Laptop! 

It is not enough to simply change the channel. We must leave a parting shot to mainstream media executives telling them WHY consumers are refusing to watch any longer. 

SIGN NOW: DO NOT LET THE MEDIA SPIN THEIR OWN FAILURE BY DENYING US TRANSPARENCY! 

This is the only way to save the future of the media and win back a trustworthy Free Press for future generations.  

There is no telling what the mainstream media will continue to hide, deny, and deflect if they decide to run cover for the most powerful man in the world — the President of the United States. 

*** There is no time to lose—we refuse to let important information remain hidden from the American voters any longer! *** 

The Hunter Biden Laptop story is the single greatest piece of evidence indicating that America’s national security is likely compromised.  

We the People deserve to know the truth! 

STAND WITH THE PEOPLE: SIGN OUR PETITION ASAP!

In contrast, the fragmentary sculptures of Bruno Catalano, notably the installation titled Les Voyageurs, leave much to the imagination, but one interpretation is that they reveal the emptiness at the heart of our movers and shakers, our chiefly urbanite managers who constitute, as Murphy puts it, “a travelling road show” throwing “empty words into ‘the vast and wandering air’” (citing Richard III, I, iv).

Whether we are witnessing in this country a spectacle of monumental ineptitude or a malignant agenda being diligently carried out – stratospheric debt and deficit, needless and onerous carbon taxes, skyrocketing inflation, unaffordable fuel prices ostensibly to fight “climate change,” airports and passport offices in utter disarray, supply chains disintegrating link by link, punitive vaccine mandates including quarantine and exorbitant ArriveCan fines for returning travelers who are unvaccinated – it is galling to realize that these Catalano fragments will escape the devastation they are causing and retire into lucrative appointments and comfortable sinecures without ever having done an honest day’s work in their lives.

One thinks of Isaiah 1:5-6 (KJV): “the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it.” Or in the more polite language of Donald Savoie in his magisterial Democracy in Canada: The Disintegration of Our Institutions:

“Canadian representative democracy needs to be on guard against mediocrity, complacency … a debased public service, a sense that citizens have no control over their Government, and that the country’s national political institutions are unable to reflect Canadian society and its regions.”

Savoie concludes his study by arguing that Canada’s future depends upon politicians and their institutions showing that “they are able to speak beyond the interest of elites.” Regrettably, the prime minister, his cabinet, and his caucus have shown, to the contrary, that they are not “committed to fixing our political institutions,” that they do not represent the views of “all Canadians and all regions,” and that they do not “speak beyond the interest of the elites.”

Responsible leaders and ministers need to have some knowledge of the fields of endeavor they supervise, whether gained in their early formative years or having acquired a working knowledge of work, or at the very least, they must feel genuine sympathy with and interest in their charges.

Government is not a severed discipline. Familiarity with history and political theory may be an advantage, but it is not sufficient. Completely detached from and indifferent to the welfare of their citizens, our rulers are little more than Catalano travelers, vacuous simulations of real working people. Mere dilettantism, which describes our current leadership, can only culminate in the travesty we are suffering.
