MLA Ellis Ross – Canada Needs to Wake Up

Ellis Ross the MLA for Skeena  explains how Canada is getting hosed by cancelling pipeline development. Net result is America buys our resources at a drastically discounted price and resells it on the world market.

Much of the opposition to pipelines in Canada is funded by American money coming from third parties such as Tides Foundation in the US.

U.S. Boom, Canadian Bust: A Tale of Two Oil Industries

The U.S. oil industry is capitalizing on surging oil prices while competitors across the border are stagnating. Why? This article does a good job of comparing the areas in which Canada and the U.S. differ to cause such a marked contrast in outcomes: technology, regulation, and taxes-including a carbon tax.

 

How Conservatives Are Being Destroyed by Facebook, Twitter and Google Without Even Realizing It

A must read by John Hawkins of the shut down Right Wing News.

Social media has realized how effective these platforms have been for Conservatives to by-pass the mainstream media and is now working hard to censor us. Even google searches are biased politically to the left.
We’ve already lost the schools, Hollywood and the mainstream media. What happens when you can’t get out conservative opinion via social media because they block, shadow ban and demonetize everyone who gets any traction? What happens if they put rules in place that essentially make expressing conservative opinions something that gets you kicked off their service? You’re pro-gun? Sorry, not allowed. You don’t like gay marriage? Get out of here. Criticizing Black Lives Matter? Out of bounds! We can hope for the best, but that seems like the future we’re headed toward and it’s one that will leave conservatism weaker than ever.

How Conservatives Are Being Destroyed by Facebook, Twitter and Google Without Even Realizing It

Today, as you read this, my website Right Wing News is shutting down operations. It has been around since 2001, but became massive a few years ago because of Facebook. Remember the mainstream media liberals going out of their minds because the Russians reached almost 150 million people with their $100,000 Facebook ad buy?

 

Facebook Bans Bestselling Author over ‘The Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama’

Bestselling conservative author Matt Margolis has a new book coming out that is already banned on Facebook. Margolis’s first book, The Worst President in History, which detailed the failures of the Obama administration, was an instant hit last fall. Margolis used social media to market…

 

Facebook Blocks Crowdfunding Site for ‘Roe v. Wade’ Movie

Pro-life leader Dr. Alveda King, who heads Civil Rights for the Unborn, a division of Priests for Life, is serving as an executive producer of the movie. Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight is attached to play a Supreme Court Justice in the film, says the fundraising site.

 

Silencing Conservative Voices

Good article by Andrew Klavan in City Journal describing how conservative voices are silenced.

No person of importance on the right seeks to silence anyone on the left. The Left, on the other hand, is broadly committed to ostracizing, blacklisting, and even criminalizing right-wing speech.

So we stay polite and silent.

Of Crudeness and Truth

Nothing scandalizes a leftist like the truth. Point out that women and men are different, that black Americans commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime, that most terrorist acts are committed by Muslims, and the Left leaps to its collective feet in openmouthed shock, like Margaret Dumont after a Groucho Marx wisecrack.
