Canada Lost 71,200 Jobs Last Month and is Worried About Trump in Christmas Movies?…

President Trump responded to the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) editing out his appearance in the Christmas movie “Home Alone 2”.

President Trump jokes Justin from Canada likely having a case of the sads after getting called out for not meeting NATO funding obligations and the new trade agreement favorable to American interests.

Too funny.  We will miss this humor in 2025 when Trump leaves office.

It is worth remembering that Canada does not allow competition in their media sector.  The Canadian government considers the news media a protected “cultural industry”; and through a process of subsidizing broadcast all news media is essentially state run media.

Why is this important?  Well, when the expressed priority of the government is controlling broadcast information if you are intellectually honest you should apply that same ideological outlook toward any information from the government in a general sense.

Canada is worried about Trump appearing in Christmas movies?

Think about that for a few minutes…

Now consider:

In combination with leftist economic policies on energy development that strangles economic growth through excessive regulation, the leftist government of Trudeau has dismantled the natural underpinnings of a market-based economy.  The manufacturing base of Canada is compromised, perhaps to the point of no return.

For two decades liberal (left-wing) Canadian policy essentially transformed their economic model from manufacturing to “assembly“.   The goods-based production within the Canadian economy was structured to take advantage of the NAFTA loophole.

Goods production in Canada was reduced from full manufacturing to a process of assembling parts brought in from overseas and then selling them into the U.S. market.   This process exploited the NAFTA loophole allowing foreign companies to ship parts to Canada and then assemble for transport into the U.S. without tariffs.

Over time the Canadian economy became more and more dependent on this system of brokering goods, while Canada simultaneously dismantled their heavy industry at the request of extreme environmentalists.

The Canadian assembly system for durable goods was always at risk of the NAFTA loophole being closed.  When President Trump renegotiated the USMCA, primarily with Mexico, the loophole was closed.  The USMCA rules on origination now require the parts to come from inside the North American manufacturing system.

Importing parts from Asia and simply assembling them in Canada is no longer permitted under the USMCA agreement.  The majority of the parts -which require heavy industry to produce- must originate from North America.  Canada has little capacity to take advantage of this economic opportunity because they dismantled their heavy industry.

As a consequence, if any multinational company wanting to invest in a manufacturing system, that avoids tariffs, to bring their end product to the massive U.S. market… well, Canada is no longer a viable option for that investment.

The multinational banks and investment groups who fund corporate manufacturing investment; and who are now no longer willing to underwrite Asian investment due to the impact of Trump tariffs; are focusing on where that investment can support the economic activity.

As with the November jobs report, when we see: “Canada’s goods-producing industries saw a decline of 26,600 net jobs, largely on manufacturing” leading the headline, this is a direct consequence of the economic dynamic identified above.

Elections have consequences; and those economic consequences are extraordinarily impactful in the era when U.S. President Trump is dismantling global supply chains; focusing on bringing high-wage manufacturing industry back to the U.S; and driving a process of profound consequence through economic nationalism.

Economic Security is National Security” ~ President Trump

            I wonder if Mark Meadows going to work for the Trump Administration might be the hint that Trump will change his VP from Pence to Meadows and then Meadows will run in 2024. That change could occur either before or after the 2020 election.

            It does seem that while Pence is an excellent VP now because he provides stability to Trumps chaos, he knows the legislative process to get things done in Congress, and he is irreproachable as a model citizen, he is also a little bit of milquetoast for electing as President.

            People are already asking the question about who will we have after Trump. That’s not a good sign since Pence is the obvious choice to carry on. Apparently, he doesn’t generate a lot of enthusiasm. That enthusiasm gap could give Democrats a way back in for 2024.

        Making such claims hides the problems.

        There are other indications that Canada’s position as a destination for mineral investment is being eroded. For instance, Canadian reserves of selected metals have been trending downwards and the country has experienced a decline in the production volumes of key commodities.
        The number of mining-related projects (mine constructions, redevelopments, expansions and processing facilities) planned and under construction dropped from 150 in 2014 to 101 in 2017. The value for such projects also decreased over the same time, from $166 billion to $80 billion.

        “The number and value of major mining projects planned and under construction in Canada has decreased”
        https://www.minescanada.ca/sites/default/files/major-mining-projects.png

        e.g.:

        9.1 SO2 and PM BLIERs for existing facilities
        Vale agrees to achieve and maintain the following BLIERs for each of its facilities:
        Facility SO2: Annual Mass Emission Limit (tonnes/year) SO2: Annual Sulphur Capture Rate PM: Annual PM Emission Intensity (kg/tonne) Implementation Date
        Copper Cliff N/A
        90% 4 January 1, 2019
        Thompson 110,000i N/A N/A January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2018
        Thompson N/A 90% 4 January 1, 2019
        Port Colborne N/A N/A 2 Date of Signature
        Long Harbour N/A N/A 2 Date of Signature
        Table notes
        i Annual average over the period 2016 to 2018

        9.2 SO2 and PM BLIERs for new facilities
        Vale agrees to achieve and maintain the following BLIERs for its New Facilities:

        SO2 BLIERs for New Facilities
        Facility Type Sulphur Capture Rate1
        Lead and zinc smelters
        99%
        Nickel and copper smelters
        97%”

        Basically, mining and smelting industries are being forced to meet severe SO₂ amd Particulate Matter (PM) reductions. The PM reduction is stated in metric tons which does not address the specific PM levels addressed. Achieving strong reductions in PM 10.0 is easier than achieving them in PM 2.5; whereas getting hit with demands to reduce PM 1.0 and smaller particulate matter borders on impossible.
        As the government demand extreme stringency in meeting ever small PM reductions, more and more mining and smelting will be forced to close.

        Which is why funding for Canada’s metal mining and smelting operations has dropped from $166 billion to $80 billion in just a few years.

Canada keeps protesting that they only arrested Meng because of a request by the Americans. In other words, Canada was happy for China to take over every aspect of their government’s security as well as their trade industries and they themselves would never have arrested Meng.

After those 8 years are up then Ivanka will become the first female President. By the time those 8 years are up Baron Trump will be old enough to take Office.

    Now that’s funny. If you study the psychology of the Trump family it’s also the most likely outcome.

    Happy New Year liberals!

      It is pretty obvious to anyone who has known Donald J. Trump (the NY Builder) & the Trump Family & followed the successes of his empire from almost the beginning, that the logical outcome of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 Election victory, is that this was the beginning of the Trump Dynasty in American Political History!

      Mark my words, Donald J. Trump will earn a spot on Mount Rushmore & maybe even some of his family members also!

          Truth and untruth are terms used in a moral hierarchy, of a way of thinking, morally and ethically. Different terms might be more applicably relevant.

          Politics, money and greed are not playgrounds of morality. So don’t expect that of the primordial reptiles who dwell in the swamp of DC or Wall Street, who live to attain power and money. The human brain is part reptilian. We are part animal, like it or not. But we can be more than that – and at least some of us are, or aspire to be that, on higher than a purely animal level.

          Willie Sutton was an infamous bank robber. He was once interviewed on 60 Minutes, long ago, by Mike Wallace as I recall. During the interview he was asked, “So why do you rob banks, Willie?” Willie got this strange look on his face in replying to the liberal reporter, as if to say: Huh? Are you stupid? And he replied “Cause that’s where the money is.”

          I vividly remember that seeing that program, and it was so memorable that I never forgot it – although I can’t find any video clip of it on YouTube. Trust me – Willie actually DID say that on camera during that TV interview.

          Many decades later, Wiki now says this:

          A famous apocryphal story is that Sutton was asked by reporter Mitch Ohnstad why he robbed banks. According to Ohnstad, he replied, “Because that’s where the money is”. The quote evolved into Sutton’s law, which is often invoked to medical students as a metaphor for emphasizing the most likely diagnosis, rather than wasting time and money investigating every conceivable possibility.

          In his autobiography, Sutton denied originating the pithy rejoinder:
          The irony of using a bank robber’s maxim as an instrument for teaching medicine is compounded, I will now confess, by the fact that I never said it. The credit belongs to some enterprising reporter who apparently felt a need to fill out his copy. I can’t even remember where I first read it. It just seemed to appear one day, and then it was everywhere.

          If anybody had asked me, I’d have probably said it. That’s what almost anybody would say … it couldn’t be more obvious.

          However, he also said:
          Why did I rob banks? Because I enjoyed it. I loved it. I was more alive when I was inside a bank, robbing it, than at any other time in my life. I enjoyed everything about it so much that one or two weeks later I’d be out looking for the next job. But to me the money was the chips, that’s all.[1]

          WIKI SPIN???

          Willie actually DID say it on camera, and he certainly got paid for that interview. Maybe there is a reason why that videotape will never be seen again. But what else would you expect from a bank robber like Slick Willie? The truth? Lying and getting paid to lie is legal, with no risk of incarceration involved. It is so much easier than robbing banks. Then you can laugh all the way to the bank.

          “Slick Willie”… The same deserved moniker as our clever and charming, former president.

      Unfortunately for Canadian taxpayers, they fund this CBC Trudeaupian propaganda machine or “Crown Corporation” with over a billion dollars of their income earnings every year. Trudeau could ensure the CBC was a more honest and unbiased organization if he wanted to but its present lefty pro Liberal state suits his needs and his election campaigns very well so it won’t happen under his watch.

    The heavily biased Justin loving and protecting CBC is a despicable but effective brain washer of gullible, Canadian viewers but it’s not only Canadian news flunkeys taking an active part in the lies and the attacks in Canada. Anti Trump coverage on the CBC has to be close to 100%.

    Many Americans, that just happen by coincidence of course to be Democratic party supporters, are always happy to regale receptive Canadians on the CBC or elsewhere about the alleged “evils of President Trump.” Sleazy Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News (and regular Intel leak recipient) was probably the CBC’s primary source or “investigative correspondent” that kept the Russian Collusion hoax and all of its filthy vicious lies about President Trump fresh in the minds of CBC viewers. The American MSM’s anti Trump propaganda is also spread around the world so justifiably blame the politically corrupted and dishonest CBC you wish but also include the many traitorous Americans that tear the USA and its President down abroad and get paid for it.

    Fox News has been largely labeled an Alt Right fascist conspiracy station and is not available through normal cable in the UK and has to be specially ordered in Canada unlike CNN which is an integral part of most cable packages.

    Many say Canada is becoming a sh*thole country. Clearly the diverse cultures in Canada are clashing. A post-nationalist culture deems themselves superior to all others.

    I expect Canada to dissolve because of this. With USMCA being signed, economics clearly are geared for North-South alignment. (If you want a measure of Canadian pettiness, google the Canadian translation of the agreement: “CUSMA”). Over time, the economic engine will orientate Western Canada into a closer relationship with the US than with Eastern Canada. That cultural change will mean detachment from the post-nationalist culture of Eastern Canada.

    As it is expected that Britain and the US will sign a free trade agreement at some point, Eastern Canada will gravitate to that economic highway as they have similar cultural values to Britain and Europe. If the anticipated tariff war scenario plays out between Britain and the EU (with adjudication by the US), it is expected Quebec could easily fall into the EU sphere. Everyone would be happy as they would share similar cultural values with their counterparts. The diverse nature of Canada would dissolve.

    One word of note. Crime is definitely rising in all parts of Canada. New criminal gangs are sprouting up in the various cities, aligned with the cultural norms of the influx of immigrants.

  44. The Canadian government-owned Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) network found a sober and impartial way to look at the political contretemps going on to the south of their nation:

    Their explanation:
    “When Donald Trump generates headlines, Day 6 fires up the “Impeach-O-Meter,” inviting political experts to estimate the odds his presidency will end in impeachment.
    “These are, of course, subjective and hypothetical scores and the impeachment process is complex and dependent on many factors.”
    https://www.cbc.ca/radio/day6/tracking-the-impeach-o-meter-1.4421110
    This has been going on since May, 2017. As a thought exercise, if the Voice of America had been speculating in this way on the Blackface Trudeau reelection some months ago, how do you think the permafrost crowd up there would have reacted?

    Perhaps we are ignoring the forest due to the trees in this thread. Petty or silly as it may seem, the important point of this incident is that it is censorship imposed by those in authority. Censorship is the hallmark of authoritarianism. Speech control and mind control are a major weapon used by all authoritarian regimes, and the regimes were / are virtually all leftist. The left is anti-freedom: you can’t say that; you can’t see that. Nanny knows best. The only freedoms the left endorses are things like drug legalization, as that promotes a populace of more brain-dead people who cannot think and will be rendered incapable of opposing those who are in power.

    Like attracts the like minded. If you like regulations, restrictions, bans, and especially vengeful tactics, you’ll love the left. As for the economic aspects, they know of nothing more than “killing the goose that laid the golden egg”. But even that is not entirely based in ignorance – the underlying motive is part of the much broader plan of Fabian Socialism
