Headline: "Canada has 'game plan' if U.S. takes far-right, authoritarian shift..." Is this a joke? What say you?

Is the "Canadian government's secret 'game plan' to deal with a Trump win" another distraction from the true internal Canadian humanitarian crisis? Aren't the euthanizing MAID agents more dangerous to an average Canadian than Donald Trump is?
And regarding external threats, aren't external threats like the WEF influence on Canadian politicians more of a threat than any possible Trump sponsored USA-Canada trade policy?

Happy Friday, Andrew, Mark, Laura, Clublanders, et al. The Microsoft Newsfeed had a headline by Alec Donaldson that read that the Constitution forbids Trump from running ever again. Aside from the innocent until proven guilty clause, where do we stand in this next election as opposition to our CCP Colonial Governors of the Democrat and Republican Parties. When will the RNC be questioned on their intentions to win? Trump will be eliminated for having intentions to win election if he hasn't been already. DeSantis is under suspicion for being capable of winning and skillfully passing legislation to benefit Americans so he was bullied over that by Meghan Kelly. Who do you expect the GOP will nominate to lose gracefully? Will Michele Obama run, or will she and Barack continue to muck things up from behind the curtain?

Ninety one charges/counts in four jurisdictions!! It is time for conservatives, Republicans and all critical thinking people to jettison Donald J. Trump. Let him stand trial and if convicted, serve time in jail (mandatory minimum 5 years under Georgia RICO). The GOP has credible alternatives running for president who can win a general election and importantly, run a competent (and lawful) administration. And if s/he loses, said person won't try to overturn the election and foment an insurrection. Is this too much to ask for?!

Welcome back to the hot seat.
How much correlation do you attribute to the decline of the developed world over the past 60 years resulting from the iterative abandonment of the Judeo Christian values on which it was founded?
Is there still time to reverse the decline or shall we just maintain open borders and ignore the concept of nation states as an irrelevance?
Keep well and best wishes to Mark and all at SteynOnline.

The "sainted junior senator from New York", as brother Bill used to call him, James L. Buckley, who held major
positions in all three branches of government, passed away this morning at age 100. Both superb and gifted
gentlemen, they taught me much of what I was able to absorb about conservatism. Where shall America go
to find their kind for the future?

Have you seen the music video "Rich Men North of Richmond" which has gone viral in recent days? I think he has really tapped into the silent majority.

Andrew and fellow Club members, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on the surge in anti western sentiment on the world stage. The other day at the Iowa State fair, RFK, Jr., said that the BRICS nations who want to replace the US dollar as the world's reserve currency is now up to 40 nations. The recent coup in Niger wouldn't normally matter to me, but for the fact that apparently Niger has some of the largest uranium deposits and gold in the world and France, for example, gets about 1/3 of its power from nuclear and is dependent on Niger uranium to keep that going. Of course, we in the US have an all so important drone base there for some reason too, and the the angel of international death Victoria Nuland made an in person visit to their new government. Does the rest of the world see the west as hyenas see a wounded lion?

Many thanks to Laura and Andrew for helping out while Mark recovers.
Good to see some coverage of Richard Bilkszto,s situation.
The only place I've seen reporting about Kevin Spacey's recent trial was from The Phelim McAleer interview on your show. Have you seen any coverage at all anywhere else? Most stories like invasions of Ukraine manage to sneak through to my attention. Kevin's story should be pretty big, as it wrecked his career.

How Canada has become so woke is a complete mystery to me. It seems about 5-10 years ahead on extreme wokery. Can you shine some light on this to this non-Canadian?

How could Trudeau have consulted the ethics commissioner about his two week vacation supposedly paid for by a millionaire pal when we have been six months without a nominated commissioner? Any chance he will name a new person to inquire into Chinese inference in our last federal election?

Mark's Out of Time series is a wonderful use of the form of a classical novel (in this case The Time Machine) in the service of contemporary satire. It sure works. The way it describes the modern Us makes you wish to take your chances with the actual Morlocks of Wells instead. There are other works of fiction that would be good candidates for this treatment, Say Gulliver's Travels, or even A Clockwork Orange?

Napoleon's story is about to come to our cinemas courtesy of Ridley Scott. Do your Quebecois countrymen view him as a hero like the French, or is theirs a more nuanced view?

I would be perfectly happy with a Trump second term. I would be equally happy to see Vivek or RFK in the White House. Not DeSantis cos we need him in Florida and you're not having him till 28! We are truly spoiled for choice in conservative candidates.
But all this counts for nought if they are going to rig the election like last time. Are we addressing this problem?

Hi Andrew, It has been driving me to utter distraction that the House Republicans under the "leadership" of Speaker Kevin McCarthy are just standing by and watching the Marxists in Georgia go after President Trump with fangs out and hints of red dripping from their bloodthirsty lips. When does anyone representing those wanting the rule of law to be even handed show their courage rather than their thirst quenching for more donations. I get a hundred emails a day from Republican politicians looking for money so they can do their job. Haven't the true American freedom lovers taken enough heavy duty crapola? Do we have any recourse to save our country? This goes for yours as well.
When do you head to Davos next? If you get to walk/talk with one of the head hunters over there can you please ask if the main reason why they never talk to you is due to dining on too many crickets?
Just wondering, too, if you ever might be persuaded that the western border of Ukraine is not the responsibility of NATO's to defend until we get serious about closing our own borders? Two vicious Mexican cartels are now fighting over control of a border town in New Mexico, about seventy miles from my town. I'm flummoxed why we don't have fighter jets pushing them back into their own craphole of a country.
