In the heat of an election, when one leader questions the qualifications of an opponent they should be aware of the consequences. casting personal aspersion’s on Mr. Trudeau has prove not to be a good week for Andrew Scheer.
First he ran commercials denouncing Trudeau’s qualifications and saying Justin Trudeau is not as advertised. Then it was revealed Andrew ain’t who he says he is either. He got caught fudging his resume. Yes his election occupation is listed as an insurance broker. Yes he started out to take a course. He took six or seven months worth but didn’t complete it and was never licensed. Padding a resume is one thing allegedly fudging it is another. Especially when applying for the countries top job. It brings home a message. Originally is said. Trudeau is not as advertised. As it turns out Mister Scheer is not as advertised either. Yes I believe the revelation was in retaliation for the original negative add campaign. It is also embarrassing for a politician to be seen as lying on his resume even before he is in office. So who is the most qualified? Trudeau is a certified school teacher and the other leaders are accredited lawyers.
Before the end of the week it appears Andrew Scheer is the least qualified by his parties own standards.
Oh but the sins keep coming. It turns our he is a dual citizen.
He is American. So what is my first question before thinking it through. A right wing, part American? Being called a right wing American is well I won’t go further.
Can you imagine a right wing part American in power in Canada breaking bread with the likes of Doug Ford, Jayson Kenny with their guest Donald Trump? If that were to happen it would be the eeriest Halloween picture ever taken. That is the subliminal message his opponents are sending.
The line is, Oh Andrew is in the process of denouncing his American citizenship. The next message from his detractors is was this another omission on his resume? Or was he keeping a secret and is denouncing his American connection because you now know about it?
Yes in my view the party leader of the first part is now picking on the leader of the second part, but Andrew Scheer forgot one thing if you are going to a sh*t fight you should bring a fan lest you own sins become return fire. I can’t wait for next week
We Stand on Guard for Thee – US Version
[I have delayed until next week a post that was already written for this week in order to look South.]
In the year 2017:
Senator James Risch, Republican chair of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, interrogated Attorney General Jeff Sessions at a hearing of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence – Risch is a member of this committee. “Collusion with the Russians—or any other government, for that matter, when it comes to our elections—certainly would be improper and illegal,” Risch stated. Then he asked Sessions, “Would that be a fair statement?” Sessions replied, “Absolutely.” Trump later replaced Sessions with Attorney General Barr.
Senator Ron Johnson, Republican chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, insisted the US should be investigating whether members of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government. Asked if he agreed with Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, that “it’s OK for Republican campaign members, for Republican candidates, to welcome support from a foreign adversary, from Russia,” Johnson replied decisively, “No”.
Senator (and retired Colonel) Lindsey Graham, Republican chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, explained, “The big thing for me, guys, has always been: Did Trump work with the Russians? And I told him to his face, ‘If you did, that’s it between me and you. And anything that follows, you deserve.’ I will say that about any politician of any party.”
In the year 2019:
President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky spoke by phone. Trump asked Zelensky for a favour: interfere in the 2020 US election by investigating the likely Democrat candidate, former V-P Biden.
Senator Risch said, “I looked at the transcript. This conversation that the president had with the head of Ukraine is a typical conversation.” Trump’s statements were “normal, ordinary, regular things.” “I saw nothing … inappropriate.”
Senator Johnson said that there was nothing wrong. “I never got any sense at all there was any kind of pressure” on Zelensky. Asked whether he was troubled that the president would ask a foreign leader to investigate a political opponent Johnson said, “Almost everybody who is saying that is just troubled that Donald Trump is president. “
Senator Graham said, “I have zero problems with this phone call.” When asked if it was ethical for the president to bring up Joe Biden? Graham replied, “Yes, absolutely.”
We stand on guard for thee – US version:
Democrats began an impeachment enquiry and will vote on a motion to impeach at some point. The evidence so far is pointing towards impeaching both Trump and his V-P Pence.
But impeachment is simply an indictment. If the House impeaches, then the Senate holds a trial. If the Senate finds both of them guilty, then Speaker Pelosi becomes President – automatically.
And that would be prima facie evidence that Hell has actually frozen over despite global warming.
