Stephen Harper: The Booze Tour and the Apocalypse
Uh oh. It looks as if Stephen Harper's Great Escape Tour of Europe is going disastrously wrong.
The Tour has gone off the rails, and he's fallen off the wagon !!!!!
He can't get a deal. He can't get away from Old Duff. He's desperately seeking sexy photo-ops to try to make people forget all the scandals.
But today all the boys in the PMO could scrape up for him was this miserable one.
“Which way do I pull,” Harper asked again. “You pull down,” O’Brien replied. “Quick or slow or…?” Harper asked. “Well, it shouldn’t matter,” O’Brien replied.
Read it and weep. Or laugh like I did.
Ask yourself does Harper have another problem we should know about?
And then start digging a BOMB SHELTER.
Because shortly after that, and no doubt still under the influence, Great Guinness Leader staggered into a news conference and went after Vladimir Putin !!!
Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he is drawing a clear line between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the rest of the G8 leaders when it comes to Syria.
"Look, I think that dialogue will be interesting. I think it's important to have that kind of dialogue. But I don't think we should fool ourselves. This is G7 plus one. OK, let's be blunt. That's what this is, G7 plus one," Harper said Sunday.
Which probably isn't a good idea eh? Not with the bloodbath in Syria threatening to set off an all out war between the Sunni and the Shia.
One that could engulf the entire region, draw in the major powers, and lead us to the brink of the Third World War.
Not when we need to get the Russians onside, rather than isolate them further. Not when cooler heads are needed.
And not when you're dealing with a man like Putin...
Who being a gangster himself, probably doesn't like being accused of hanging out with thugs, by another mob leader like Harper. Which might only provoke him, destroy any chances of a deal, and make the situation even more dangerous.
And BTW let's not forget that the last time the two dictators went head to head, Great Ugly Leader didn't exactly come out on top.
But then Harper doesn't care, he's just trying to make some headlines to get the other leaders to notice him, and try to impress the folks back home.
Especially his rabid religious base, who believe that The Messiah can't return until after the Battle of Gog and Magog.
When the Russians invade the Middle East....
The popularity of this theory during the Cold War can be seen in that it was openly advocated in 1971 by the then Governor of California, Ronald Reagan. During a dinner address to state legislators Reagan said "Ezekiel tells us that Gog, the nation that will lead all of the other powers of darkness against Israel, will come out of the north. Biblical scholars have been saying for generations that Gog must be Russia. What other powerful nation is to the north of Israel? None.
But it didn’t seem to make sense before the Russian revolution, when Russia was a Christian country. Now it does, now that Russia has become Communistic and atheistic, now that Russia has set itself against God. Now it fits the description of Gog perfectly."
So for them the Third World War isn't something to be feared eh?
It's something to be WELCOMED !!!!
Yup. We're in the hands of a crazed cult, and its increasingly desperate leader.
But Stephen Harper should know this:
He can run, he can drink heavily.
He can hope the world ends, before the police arrive to arrest him and his Con gang.
But he'll NEVER get away from Old Duff...
