Canadian Newz Update: "....the political depth of a finger bowl" PM thinks he can work NAFTA deal with US

finger bowl

What is that definition of insanity again?  Oh yes, "Repeating the same action over and over again, expecting different results."  That definition would apply to le Dauphin in his never-ending effort, along with Mexico, to come to a new NAFTA agreement with the Trump government.

Trudeau's political acumen was accurately assessed by former Harper Government Cabinet Minister Jason Kenny in an op-ed the other day.  Please read the snippet from the National Post and I'll have more comments to follow:

“I worked with dozens of MPs in Ottawa, including (opposition) critics who were thoughtful, intelligent, engaged people with whom I had a constructive relationship. He wasn’t one of them,” [Jason] Kenney said Wednesday.

“(Trudeau) is a person that I worked with as a minister for three years who I got to know quite well as somebody who has difficulty with complex files, and I think (Trans Mountain) is a very complex issue.” 
In a Calgary Sun column published Wednesday, Kenney was quoted attacking Trudeau’s ability to resolve a dispute that has delayed construction on the Trans Mountain pipeline, which would triple the amount of Alberta oil flowing to tankers in B.C. Trudeau doesn’t have “the foggiest idea what’s going on,” Kenney said in the column.
“I know Justin. He doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing. This guy is an empty trust-fund millionaire who has the political depth of a finger bowl,” he is quoted as saying.

“He can’t read a briefing note longer than a cocktail napkin, OK.

Greencrow says:  Trudeau and his cabinet are trying to work two very complex deals at the moment...one of them the inter-provincial dispute between Alberta and British Columbia over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and the other one a new NAFTA agreement.  Neither set of negotiations is going well. Here are some recent headlines about how the NAFTA negotiations are going:

Greencrow:  It's definitely NOT rocket science. I can say quite assuredly here and now that there will NEVER be a new NAFTA agreement. NEVER!  Any idiot can figure that one out.  Why?  Because the US government under the Trump Administration (but probably it would be the same under ANY administration) is non compos mentis.  Or, as the Russians say...it is "not agreement capable".  I have spelled this out at length in several previous posts but, for the sake of the "hard of reading" will repeat myself ad nauseam.  The United States has, for economic reasons, set itself up as "the exceptional" state.  It does not adhere to treaties or international agreements because that would infer that there is such a thing as "international law" that governs its behaviour.  Since it is above the law...it cannot subject or submit itself to legal restrictions of any type.  That is why it regularly breaks the Articles/Resolutions of the United Nations...to show the world that they don't apply to the USrael.  Similarly, that is why Israel regularly breaks the Geneva Conventions AND the Articles/Resolutions  of the United Nations.

There WAS a time when the United States of Israel could AFFORD to pretend to submit to Trade Agreements and International Laws.  Those days are now past.  USrael has spent itself into a hole and the only way it can dig itself out is by pretending that it has the RIGHT to rape and pillage all over the world...and to trample on the economies of even so-called allies.

I have to laff.  Trudeau and his cabinet of clowns only have to look around the world to see evidence that they will NEVER reach a deal with the US.  Look at North Korea.  Look at what the bozo Bolton said on TV a week or so ago about applying the "Libya" model to its negotiations with North Korea.  Here is a snippet from Moonofalabama about "Trumps threat of total decimation of North Korea makes a deal impossible".

During a press conference yesterday he was asked about the "Libya model" issue (vid) and, in a seemingly off the cuff remark, managed to push the divisive comparison to a new level:
“The model, if you look at that model with Gaddafi, that was a total decimation. We went in there to beat him. Now that model would take place if we don’t make a deal, most likely. But if we make a deal, I think Kim Jong-un is going to be very, very happy.”

One might call that the 'art of the mafia deal': "Sign here or I will kill you."

Some media pretend that Trump was only "assuring" Kim Jong-un. Reuters headlined Trump seeks to placate North Korea's Kim over uncertain summit; the New York Times: Trump and North Korea Rebuff Bolton’s ‘Libya Model’; Politico: Trump offers North Korea’s Kim assurances and a warning.

In my book a thread of "total decimation" is a quite a bit more than "a warning".

The British Guardian had a more realistic take: Donald Trump's threat to Kim Jong-un: make a deal or suffer same fate as Gaddafi.

The threat Trump made shows North Korea that it was right to acquire nuclear weapons and the capability to launch them onto the continental United States. Giving them up would be suicidal.

Trump also mumbled that he would give "strong assurances" to North Korea and Kim Jong-un for their safety should they make a deal. He did not explain what those assurances would be. The way Trump destroyed the nuclear agreement with Iran, which came with "strong assurances" from a U.S president and a UN Security Council endorsement, demonstrates that no assurance the U.S. ever gives is worth the paper it is written on.

Greencrow says: All of the efforts of the United States of Israel are taken up with fomenting instability, regime change and worldwide conflict leading to WWIII.  The Trump administration, caught in a spiral of economic collapse that they believe can only be halted by a World War...have no time or energy to sincerely and/or seriously negotiate a deal.  They can only break deals.  That is the only mandate that has been given to them by the "deep state".  They are terrified of the growing global coalescing of support for China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative.  That is the time bomb tick-tocking in the background of all their international communications.  Here is Mike Whitney's recent assessment:

"....it wouldn’t surprise me if Washington’s deep state powerbrokers are more concerned about the proposed [pan Asian] regional free trade zone, than they are about the North’s nuclear weapons. In order for the US to be a major player in the most populous and prosperous region in the world, it must implement its “pivot to Asia” strategy that controls China’s explosive growth and prevents the emergence of an economic or military rival. The so called “Putin Plan” for vast economic integration is a direct threat to Washington’s dream of maintaining its dominant position in the global economy. If successfully implemented, the Putin Plan will greatly accelerate the pace of imperial decline...."

Greencrow: As stated, the only genuine initiative that USrael is engaged in is global de-stabilization...aimed at Russia, China and their allies with a view to provoking WWIII and somehow, like the alchemists of ancient times, forging gold out of iron or brass. Or, as they say...bringing "Order out of Chaos". Hey, it "worked" twice previously...World War I set the stage for the Israeli 'regime--which was born out of WWII....so you can't blame the globalist, Ziofascist warmongers for wanting a threepeat.

According to this analysis in the off-guardian...the War on Afghanistan was a preparation for an eventual attack on Russia and a "spanner in the works" of the Belt and Road Initiative that Russia and China are working toward which, if successful...could transform the world the same way that the travels of Marco Polo and the trade routes thus formed ultimately transformed Europe. The BRI or the New Silk Road or whatever you want to call it...promises to transform world trade not only in Asia but all over the world. If Canada weren't led by such an utter dolt, Canada could now be playing a pivotal role in extending the trade route across North America. This would transform Canada's north and be the potential salvation of the indigenous peoples of northern Canada....who are currently languishing under the not-so-benign neglect of the Trudeau "make voluminous apologies to all and sundry...but don't deliver on financial promises" pathetic administration.

Greencrow summarizes: For evidence of the crisis the Canadian north is currently in, please read this report from the National Post about Nunavut in Crisis--"Arctic communities plea for resources to deal with suicide-violence". If "le Dope-fiend" didn't have a poker stuck up his @$$ when it comes to Putin and Russia...if he really cared about Canada's north...he would save one of his putrid apologies for Putin, for gratuitously dissing him/Russia ever since he [Trudeau] came to power. This, contrary to his election promise to Canadians to "reset" international relations. Justin would get down on his knees and beg Putin to let Canada in on the Belt and Road Initiative....which would save Canada's North and Canada's sovereignty in one fell swoop. It should be clear that Trump's scuttling of NAFTA was a yet another backdoor effort in the relentless march towards "Harmonization" and a North American Union. But the clueless Le Dope-fiend dangerously [for Canada's sovereignty...such as it is] hitched his political star to the economic basket case/Ponzi scheme south of the border. As Jason Kenny astutely surmised...Trudeau doesn't have the political depth of a finger bowl...in order to extricate himself/Canada out from the hand-basket ride to hell that USrael is now on.

My blogging colleague, Northerntruthseeker has a post up today about the mess that Trump has got USrael in vis a vis breaking the JCPOA multi-nation treaty with Iran. This is an absolute case in point in support of my argument that USrael is non compos mentis. Now Drumpf, as NTS calls him...is talking about a 12 point "Jumbo" deal with Iran.  Who can assure Iran...or anyone in the entire world...for that matter...that the USrael would keep a "Jumbo" deal any more that it kept the JCPOA deal that it took Obama four years to arrive at?  The Trump administration has been in a free fall of internal crisis and chaos ever since taking office.  Trump will probably be impeached and/or removed from office long before the signing of any so-called "Jumbo" deal....or any deal, with Korea, Iran OR Canada/Mexico.


So...only a complete fool would seriously negotiate with an entity that insults would-be treaty partners like Drumpf is doing to North Korea ["Libya model"] and Iran ["Jumbo 12 point impossible deal]. Only a complete fool, you say? Step right up Trudeau. Keep on banging Canada's head against the brick wall of Ziofascist warmongering globalism. My fingers are getting tired of typing this depressing crap...somebody....get me a "finger bowl".
