    Trudeau compared Harper’s view on Muslims and the niqab to the refusal of Canada to accept Jews who had fled Nazi Germany in 1939 What took place in Canada during the last week isn’t exactly Godwin’s Law but it is close. The law postulates that if an online discussion goes on long enough, eventually someone will compare something or someone to Hitler or the Nazis. A couple of federal MPs didn’t disappoint. Last Monday, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau gave a speech on, of all things, liberty. The leader, as progressive always do, went on and on about diversity and inclusion...

    Trudeau's Promises: Like the numerous wind turbines sucking wealth from Ontarians’ pockets these promises of easy wealth, like smoke, will dissipate into nothingness Pierre Trudeau’s son has attempted to put the shine back on the Liberal fire engine by holding a two-day retreat in southwestern Ontario, a part of the province that in recent years has lost a spate of manufacturing jobs. The Liberals are hoping to highlight the Harper Conservatives’ poor stewardship of the Canadian economy by focusing on Ontario’s rust belt. Kathleen Wynne replaced McGuinty, and continues to run the Liberal Party/Public Sector Union oligopoly Good luck with...

    Too bad part of Trudeau’s being “authentic” and “being yourself” includes his hanging out at Mosques. Any day now Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be blamed by the lib-left and their running dog media hacks for this week’s terrorist attacks in Ottawa and Quebec. That’s because the lib-left, who always throw politics rather than effective stopgap measures at Islamic terrorism—which they refuse even to name—will move quickly to blame the terrorist attacks on Canada’s participation in the current combat mission in Iraq. The lib-left will do this even though there is documented proof on the books that terrorists in droves...

    Justin Trudeau will tell his “life’s story” in a memoir to be published this fall — one year before he goes to the polls asking Canadian voters to make him prime minister. The Liberal leader’s book will be published by HarperCollins Canada, the publisher announced Tuesday. The “personal memoir” will appear in both English and French. “Mr. Trudeau’s candid memoir will reveal to its readers the experiences that have shaped him over the course of his life and show how his passion for Canada and its people took root,” the publisher said in a news release. “Covering the years from...

    CHICAGO (AP) - Best-selling author Kevin Trudeau, whose name became synonymous with late-night TV pitches, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday for bilking consumers through ubiquitous infomercials for his book, "The Weight Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want You to Know About." As he imposed the sentence prosecutors had requested, U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman portrayed the 50-year-old Trudeau as a habitual fraudster going back to his early adulthood. So brazen was Trudeau, the judge said, he once even used his own mother's Social Security number in a scheme. ... defense attorney Tom Kirsch said the harm Trudeau caused...

    CHICAGO — A federal judge rejected an impassioned plea from a television pitchman for his freedom on Tuesday, ordering U.S. Marshals to lock up Kevin Trudeau for failing to pay a $37 million civil judgment. The visibly exasperated judge had already ordered that Trudeau be jailed during a hearing in Chicago when Trudeau stood up and asked if he could address the court. The Federal Trade Commission won the judgment after accusing Trudeau of hoodwinking viewers about his weight-loss books. "There are no more assets to turn over, your honor," the 50-year-old Trudeau insisted during a 10-minute plea, at times...

    Nothing says bug-eyed clerical fanaticism more than inviting a hate-spewing Saudi cleric to address your religious revival meeting. But this is part of the under-reported history of the Reviving the Islamic Spirit (RIS) Convention, a conference that Justin Trudeau, a frontrunner in Canada's Liberal Party leadership race – and son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau – will address this weekend in Toronto. It's also why moderate Muslims and non-Muslims are aghast at the prospect of Trudeau's presence legitimizing the conference and some of its notables. Although organizers pitch the gathering as "A Unique Youth Effort" "to help overcome new...

    OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau caused uproar in the House of Commons today after he called Federal Environment Minister Peter Kent a “piece of s---” during a heated question time debate over the Kyoto Protocol. The Liberal MP for Papineau immediately apologized, admitting he “lost his cool” after Kent questioned why NDP environment critic Megan Leslie had not attended last week’s climate change summit in South Africa. Canada officially withdrew from the Kyoto accord on Monday, drawing pointed criticism from overseas signatories to the pact. Trudeau became incensed after Kent suggested that Leslie should have been in Durban for the UN...

    Should western governments describe “honor killings” or female genital mutilation as “barbaric”? The son of the late Canadian colossus Pierre Trudeau thinks such terms have unfortunate pejorative overtones: Liberal MP Justin Trudeau said the government should not call honour killings “barbaric” in a study guide for would-be Canadian citizens… “There’s nothing that the word ‘barbaric’ achieves that the words ’absolutely unacceptable’ would not have achieved,” Trudeau, the Liberal immigration critic, said. “We accept that these acts are absolutely unacceptable. That’s not the debate. In casual conversation, I’d even use the word barbaric to describe female circumcision, for example, but in...

    In life, Pierre Elliott Trudeau commanded the attention of Canadians with his flamboyance, imagination and, at times, arrogance. But a decade after his death, the man who ignited Trudeaumania rests in relative obscurity. The cemetery holding the former prime minister offers few clues that one of Canada’s most historic figures is entombed there, just a few metres from a busy road in rural Quebec. Unlike the gravesites of other late prime ministers, there’s no flagpole outside the Trudeau family mausoleum and no plaque recalling details of his life.

    Most Canadians and Americans are simply unaware of the drastic changes that have taken place in their respective countries over the past few generations. In his first and only major book, Federalism and the French Canadians (Macmillan, 1968), former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau openly and proudly outlined his plan to socialize Canada. To that point, most socialists theorists felt that any form of federalism, controlled as it must be by a constitution spelling out distinctive federal and provincial (or state) responsibilities according to which the federal government is not allowed to touch provincial/states matters, and vice versa, was a system...

    James Corey Glass, apprentice mortician and United States Army deserter, was keeping an unusually close eye on the text messages coming into his cellphone. He was hoping to hear that a court had blocked the Canadian government’s attempt to send him back to the United States. On Wednesday afternoon, the message came: Mr. Glass, 25, could remain in Canada while he appealed his removal order by the country’s Immigration Department. It was a welcome reprieve, he said, but well short of a guarantee that he and other deserters could make Canada their new home. The Canadian government’s effort to remove...

    Best-selling author Kevin Trudeau violated a 2004 court order by making "patently false" claims in one of his books about a weight-loss regimen, a federal court said in a ruling released Monday. The ruling found Trudeau in contempt of a 2004 court order that barred him from using infomercials to sell any product or service other than books and required that he not misrepresent the content of those books. Trudeau made the claims in several infomercials promoting his book "The Weight Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want You to Know About," the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois...

    WINNIPEG (CP) - First, there was the Greatest Canadian contest. Now, a Winnipeg-based history magazine has named Pierre Elliott Trudeau the Worst Canadian. The former prime minister topped an online poll conducted by The Beaver. Editor Mark Reid says in the last 50 years, Trudeau almost stands alone as someone who transformed Canada, but also polarized the nation with controversial measures such as the national energy program and invoking the War Measures Act. The list included three other prime ministers, three convicted criminals and two singers. Reid says the contest was designed to get Canadians talking about history.

But a tribute to Cuba's Fidel Castro in last Sunday's Toronto Star by the late Pierre Trudeau's son Alexandre (also known as Sacha), was so extravagant, ignorant and nonsensical that it demands reaction.

But the lesson of that history has acquired great relevance in our post-9/11 world. Let us briefly recall the events of nearly 36 years ago. On Oct. 5, 1970, members of the Front de Liberation du Quebec (FLQ) kidnapped James Cross, the British trade commissioner, in Montreal. Five days later, Pierre Laporte, Quebec’s minister of labour in Robert Bourassa’s...

Pierre Trudeau confounds us still. A new biography of the former prime minister, whom Canadians have long been taught to regard as a great liberal politician, reveals that as a youth and young man, Mr. Trudeau was an anti-Semite, admired fascist dictators such as Hitler and Mussolini, promoted revolution and longed for an independent and Catholic Quebec that would be home only to francophones.

The book, titled "Young Trudeau: Son of Quebec, Father of Canada, 1919-1944," shows a side to Trudeau that would have been unlikely to come to light under a Liberal or even Progressive Conservative party government. The new bio, to be officially released tomorrow, depicts Trudeau not in the usual iconographic way as the sacrosanct icon of the progressive new Canada but as an anti-Semitic admirer of Hitler and Mussolini who openly called for a revolution against McKenzie...

    Doonesbury ^ | 10/13/1974 | Gary Trudeau
    With Dan Rather hosting CBS' coverage tonight of the 3rd presidential debate, moderated by Bob Schieffer, I thought it an interesting historical note that both men were featured in the Sunday Doonesbury strip 30 years ago today.This message has no point, in particular. I just got a kick out of it, and thought others might, as well...

    NEW YORK - Cartoonist Garry Trudeau, who has skewered politicians for decades in his comic strip “Doonesbury,” tells Rolling Stone magazine he remembers Yale classmate George W. Bush as “just another sarcastic preppy who gave people nicknames and arranged for keg deliveries.”Trudeau attended Yale University with Bush in the late 1960s and served with him on a dormitory social committee.“Even then he had clearly awesome social skills,” Trudeau said. “He could also make you feel extremely uncomfortable ... He was extremely skilled at controlling people and outcomes in that way. Little bits of perfectly placed humiliation......Bush has created more harm...

    Papers Warned About Upcoming 'Doonesbury' Strip With 'Head on Platter' By E&P Staff Published: May 14, 2004 1:11 PM EST, updated at 2:23 PM NEW YORK Clients of Gary Trudeau's "Doonesbury" comic were alerted today to the fact that the May 23 strip, drawn in April, "contains the image of a head on a platter." Lee Salem, editor of Universal Press Syndicate, referred to the strip's content as "an unfortunate coincidence," explaining, "Given its timing following the recent grisly tragedy in Iraq, and the realities of Sunday color-production cycles, we felt we should call this to your attention." Universal will...

    Does anybody know what is going on with the Doonesbury strip today? It looks like Mike is injured or dying. It also looks like this is another "political" statement by Trudeau and another dig at President Bush on the Iraq issue. Any comments or illumination would be appreciated.
  • Vanity Poll: When Is Garry Trudeau Going To Portray Kerry As A Pair Of Flip-Flops In "Doonesbury"

    Garry Trudeau, owner of the Democrat political comic strip Doonesbury, has had his ghost cartoonists portray George W. Bush as a feather and a cowboy hat. The hirelings have also portrayed California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as a giant hand. Currently, Trudeau has taken a break from the tiresome chore of administering his cartooning staff to launch an attack on Dubya: 'Doonesbury' offers $10,000 for proof Bush served. My question is: When will Trudeau get back down to the business of running his bread-and-butter, and instruct his minions to portray Democrat presidential candidate apparent John Kerry as a pair of talking...

    If children read anything in the newspapers anymore, it's still the Sunday comics section -- that inviting spread of colored cartoon art, that staple of Silly Putty advertising. One of the industry's best-known cartoonists is Garry Trudeau, the envelope-pushing baby boomer creator of "Doonesbury." He's now delivered controversy again with his signature. He sent to his syndicate a Sunday strip with a new topic: masturbation. "There's a new study that suggests regular masturbation prevents prostate cancer," says one of the strip's characters, the oh-so-relevant Reverend Scot Sloan. A few panels later, slacker Zonker arrives to announce "self-dating prevents cancer." Trudeau...

    Nobody bites at auction for Doonesbury comic strips PORTLAND - Remember those Doonesbury comic strips that made fun of Portland's school funding problems? On Friday, supporters of Measure 26-48 were ready to auction off three more of Gary Trudeau's original strips. All the proceeds were meant to help out the Portland School District. There was only one problem - no one made a bid. However, that did not stop the measure's supporters from pushing their message about the upcoming election. "Anybody in Multnomah County can go and drop their ballot off. We need to have people do that. This...
