Standing Tall, Standing Proud...and standing out in the crowd

Faith Goldy first came to my attention early last year, and has continued to not only impress, but amaze me. From first discovering her via Rebel Media, and her well documented work there, through her post Rebel journalism, and fiery promotion of nationalism, as evidenced in the following video:



A good video of that rally can be found here, and I think that above all of the great work Faith has done, both here on this continent, and beyond, this rally stood out to me, without a doubt. It showed me more than ever, as if I wasn't convinced already, what kind of a woman Faith truly is...and what kind of character she possesses. As she has done in the past so many times, Faith stuck her neck out, and faced down ever present hostility, to not only show the rest of Canada, but the rest of the world, a united front of peaceful patriotism, and also that of pride, strident nationalism...and freedom.

It is a natural human instinct, to live, and be free...but freedom is in fact not free, an…

A carbon tax should receive the ax, on both sides of the 49th parallel

In the blue state of Washington, where I currently reside, we have a Governor who is very pro carbon tax. Governor Jay Inslee has been a proponent of a statewide carbon tax, with his support of the failed Initiative 732, which was solidly rejected by voters in 2016, in a 59-41 percent margin. According to an article posted on MyNorthwest.com, by Jason Rantz, he cites a quote from Inslee in 2016, where the Democrat Governor says: "I would veto anything that heads the wrong direction and the wrong direction is new taxes in the state of Washington." If that wasn't a proven fallacy already, then his continued advocacy of a state carbon tax, according to the same article, certainly proves it so, with Inslee's latest proposal, designed to raise 750 million dollars in it's first year, and only increasing after that. I guess one must thank God for small blessings, as well as large ones, as Inslee's latest carbon shakedown proposal has failed to pass this liberal sta…

The price of authenticity can be high, but being authentic is priceless

He is known as the "Albertan from Quebec", and Maxime Bernier, leader of the People's Party of Canada (PPC), certainly seems to live up to that, and is now free to do so, since his departure from the Conservative Party of Canada(CPC), and subsequent courageous leap forward, with the founding of the PPC. In the current, polarized political climate we all find ourselves in, being authentic to ones beliefs can indeed come at a high price, and within the whipped confines of the CPC, along with all the inauthenticity that party has come to represent, I can only imagine how many people have turned their backs on Maxime, whether it be former colleagues, others within the ranks of that party, and even those in his personal life.

I have touched on equalization previously, but one undeniable way Maxime seeks to represent all Canadians equally, including Albertans, is at last putting equalization under the microscope. In a speech posted on the PPC homepage, he lays out a very good…
