    An Afghan talent show contestant’s striking resemblance to Justin Trudeau has turned him into an unlikely celebrity in the war-torn country. Abdul Salam Maftoon, a wedding singer from a village in the remote and impoverished northeastern province of Badakhshan, had never even heard of his more famous doppelganger until a judge on the popular television music contest Afghan Star pointed out the uncanny likeness. Slightly built with a long face and dark brown hair and eyes, Maftoon, 29, hopes the flattering comparison to the politician widely rated as one of the sexiest leaders in the world will bring him more...

    No, I’m not going to post the cute video of Sandy O.C. and her college friends dancing to Listomania. It is cute, and it was made 10 years ago when “lip-dubbing” videos were all the rage. But let it serve as a warning to the children of the social media age who plan on ruling the world some day: the innertubes are forever.So today I’m going to help Jettie G shoulder the responsibility of making fun of Canada’s socialist-open-borders Prime Minister.

  • Trudeau Facing Macron Nightmare as Yellow Vests Come to Canada, Protest Taxes, Illegals

    Canadians, many in yellow vests like those worn by anti-government protesters in France, demonstrate in Ottawa on Dec. 8. The streets of France have been rocked by the “yellow vest” protests over the past five weeks, named for the reflective safety vests worn by many protesters. The anti-government demonstrations began over an increased gasoline tax and spread to include other issues. In recent weeks, the protests extended beyond Paris and other French cities to include Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, among others, where outraged citizens are fed up with high taxes, strict regulations and an increasingly oppressive centralized...
  • TRUDEAU BLAMES TRUMP FOR CANADA’S ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CRISIS

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is blaming President Donald Trump and his “domestic realities” for the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants coming into Canada. Trudeau made the comments Friday during a year-end interview with Global News. Dubbed a “border crisis” by the Official Opposition Conservatives, an increasing number of Canadians are also concerned about the steady stream of illegals coming into Canada, according to polls. The flood of would-be refugees began shortly after Trudeau issued the now infamous #WelcomeToCanada tweet in January 2017 that invited the refugees of the world to come to Canada, even as Trump aimed to...

    Undermining Canadians' 'faith' in immigration is 'dangerous' says Trudeau. During a wide-ranging interview with The Canadian Press, Trudeau said he believes a broad Canadian consensus holds that 'immigration is good for the country', in the face of growing opposition to it in other places. “The decision that the Conservatives have taken recently to, for example, go after the global compact on migration in a way that is deliberately and knowingly spreading falsehoods for short-term political gain and to drum up anxiety around immigration is irresponsible, is not the way we should be moving forward in a thoughtful way on one...

    China appeared to intensify its punitive campaign against Canada over the arrest of a top Chinese technology executive as a second Canadian working here was detained by security officials and dropped out of contact with his government. The second case involves Michael Spavor, a writer and entrepreneur who operates a cultural organization that promotes trips into North Korea. A newspaper linked to the provincial government in Liaoning, along the border with North Korea, reported that he had been detained by security officials there on charges of “engaging in activities jeopardizing China’s national security.” Mr. Spavor gained prominence for helping arrange...

    Citing audience input, CBC has reversed its decision to remove the holiday track Baby, It's Cold Outside from seasonal playlists. "Last week, we decided to press pause to consider the different points of view on playing Baby, It's Cold Outside. Because we value our audience input, which was overwhelmingly to include the song, we have put it back on the two playlists where it had been removed," Chuck Thompson, CBC's head of public affairs, said in a statement Tuesday. "Appreciating not everyone interprets lyrics the same way, listeners may wish to skip the song as we understand not everyone will...

    Objective journalism in Canada’s mainstream media is effectively dead It’s no secret Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has come under heavy criticism lately. His popularity began to tank when he went on his disastrous trip to India and, with his constant wardrobe changes, showed the entire world what a fool he is. Will he and the Liberals win the next election scheduled to be held in October of next year? Lorne Gunter, writing an opinion piece in the Sun newspaper, thinks he will.

    Rather than allowing male politicians to insist that they’re really feminists, society should insist that they should drop their pretence. Avowed male feminists should be forced into the reality of admitting their biological genders soonest Self identifying feminists like Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who allegedly groped a female reporter before telling her the day after in what CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) called ”an apology of sorts” when he said: “If I had known you were reporting for a national paper I never would have been so forward”, is escaping the wrath of the progressive #MeToo Movement. Proof positive that...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau refused to hold up a copy of the trade pact signed by him, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, and President Trump, at Friday’s ceremony, despite the latter urging him to do so. Trudeau appeared to be in a bit of a feisty mood despite the historic nature of the agreement, along with Trump’s insistence that the two have become ‘great friends.’ Aside from being the only one of the three North American leaders to not hold the document up for a photo op, Trudeau referred to the President as simply “Donald” during the meeting, and...

    The take-away from Justin Trudeau’s latest worrisome move, is that while the leftwing media may be up for sale, the average Canadian IS NOT Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants an American-like, left-leaning mainstream media for Canada—and is investing more than half a billion taxpayers’ dollars to get it. Watching from the country next door how the American media, which supplies a 90-plus-percent negative coverage of all things President Donald Trump and whose blatant intent is to drive him out of office, Trudeau wants a 90% left-leaning media in place for Canada’s upcoming 2019 federal election.

    There’s a language fight brewing with the LGBT lobby over the new trilateral agreement, and — what a surprise — it looks like far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is behind it. The Hill reports that a group of 38 GOP lawmakers has sent a letter to President Trump over proposed trade deal language meant to prevent sex discrimination. The problem is that the language equates “sexual orientation and gender identity” (SOGI) with sex. “A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy,” congressmen explained in a the letter dated November 16. “It is especially inappropriate and...

    Canada’s government is joining President Trump in criticizing a Montana judge’s ruling that blocked construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. “We are committed to supporting our energy sector and the hard-working Canadians it employs. Our government has always supported the Keystone XL project, and we are disappointed by this decision,” Vanessa Adams, spokeswoman for Canadian Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi, said in a statement. “It is important for good, middle-class jobs in Canada and for a successful energy export market. The project has received all necessary approvals in Canada,” she said. Adams said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government “is taking...

    Mexico's President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Tuesday President Trump's preferred acronym for the free trade agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada, USMCA, is not "adequate" in Spanish. Lopez Obrador said in a tweet his chief trade negotiator, Jesús Seade, alerted him the USMCA acronym does not suit Mexican law, under which the trade pact would be a formal treaty, not an agreement. The USMCA -- short for United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement -- is set to replace the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), once ratified by the three countries' legislatures. In Spanish, NAFTA was known as TLCAN,...

    OTTAWA — From the get-go, the Liberal government’s goal in rewriting NAFTA was to get a “progressive” trade deal for Canada that was “free and fair.” So did it? While there are lots of ways to tally the winners — and losers — in the new United States Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA, one is to look at the six objectives that Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland herself articulated on the eve of the renegotiation.

Bass-ackwards because former President Barack Obama got away with meddling in Canada’s 2015 federal election by sending his top campaign team to help Justin Trudeau get elected as Canada’s prime minister.

    WASHINGTON—High-stakes trade negotiations between Canada and the U.S. were dramatically upended on Friday morning by inflammatory secret remarks from President Donald Trump, after the remarks were obtained by the Toronto Star. In remarks Trump wanted to be “off the record,” Trump told Bloomberg News reporters on Thursday, according to a source, that he is not making any compromises at all in the talks with Canada — but that he cannot say this publicly because “it’s going to be so insulting they’re not going to be able to make a deal.” In a remark he did not want published, U.S. President...

    After days of speculation that a bilateral North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) had been reached between the United States and Mexico, the Mexican president-elect insisted on bringing Canada into the deal. On Monday, Mexico and the U.S. announced a deal to change the 25-year old trade pact, with Canada pressured to sign on by Friday. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who will take office on Dec. 1, made the comments during his speech before an event in the Mexican state of Chiapas. He said it was important that Canada was part of the deal.
