Trudeau is the globalist left’s poster boy. The mainstream media has been on overdrive trying to make Trudeau seem like some larger than life hero. Check out this altered photo in the mainstream media yesterday:

G7 meeting picture

Trudeau is 6’2, President Trump is 6’3 but picture after picture of the G7 meeting yesterday makes Trudeau taller than President Trump.

These leftist’s know psychology and are masters at public manipulation. Notice too that they frame Trudeau as somehow being superior to President Trump but the reality is that Trudeau runs a country whose economy is barely the size of Texas. You would think Canada’s economy was bigger than the U.S. with all the love and attention the mainstream media is giving it.

Time to demonstrate absurdity with absurdity:

How do you like this globalist MSM

After my comments about Trudeau last week in this video here, the GuerillaStockTrading site has been under attack from Canada. The attacks are likely State sponsored. China did the same thing. That’s what these globalists do. They hate the Internet and the free flow of information and ideas. They can no longer control the public discourse like they did in the day’s before the Internet so they try and hack and bring down websites to silence critics.

Trudeau thinks its insulting that tariffs were put on Canada steel and aluminum in the name of national security. But wait, look at Trudeau stab Trump in the back with his globalist agenda. His actions kind of affirm what President Trump has suggested, trusting in Canada while it remains a left-leaning globalist country is not a good idea. I would go a step further. If Trudeau continues to bow to the globalists and EU by accepting immigrants from Syria and other Muslim countries that hate us, we should build a wall on our Canadian border as well. Canada’s wreckless immigration policies should not put U.S. citizens in harms way via the open border between our two countries. If Trudeau is so offended by tariffs on their steel and aluminum in the name of national security, how do you think Mr. Sensitive would feel about a border wall? LOL. It would be fun to watch his response.

Check out Germany’s Merkel giving President Trump the evil eye at the June 9, 2018 G7 meeting:

Merkel giving Trump the evil eye.

I’m telling you folks, these globalists hate President Trump.

Canada Subsidizes Its Lumber Industry

The Canadian lumber industry functions differently from that of the US, it’s more like communist China. In the U.S., most logging is done by private companies on privately owned land. The Canadian timber industry operates mostly on government lands and the government only charges a small harvesting fee. In other words, Canadian timber producers are being subsidized by the government which has allowed them to flood our markets with cheaply produced wood from fir, spruce, pine, and other coniferous trees. This has hurt the US timber industry, putting a lot of US timber companies out of business.

Canada Has 270% Tariffs Against US Diary Industry

Canada, when it comes to dairy, acts like China when it comes to trade. Canada’s heavily regulated dairy industry supports prices at sustainable levels by restricting domestic overproduction and keeping out imports. In 2016, Canadian farmers received an average price of C$0.79 a litre for milk, compared with C$0.49 on average for US farmers.

Gurus Pumping Pot Stocks Have No Idea

Some prominent stock newsletters that promote investing in pot because Canada just made pot legal at a country-wide level, have no clue what they are talking about. Canada has tariffs on almost everything including outright banning the importing of pot across its border. The Canada Border Agency states, “Bringing cannabis (marijuana) and cannabis products across Canada’s borders is a serious criminal offence.” So Canada legalizing pot has no direct benefit on U.S. pot producers.

Canada Tariffs Against the US

The fake pictures of Trudeau’s height relative to Trump’s made me suspicious of what is currently being reported in the mainstream media so I wanted to see if Canada really is a poster boy for free trade, or just a poster boy for globalists.

Folks, I could go on. In fact, I only made it to page 275 of the 1,564 page Canadian Customs Tariff’s book for 2017.

This is why the mainstream media in the U.S. is so hated right now. It’s like the mainstream media is owned by foreigners in other countries. The MSM is lying to the American public about Canada’s own protectionism. All the MSM cares about is bashing President Trump and attempting to make him a one-term President. Truth doesn’t matter. As traders, we must know the truth when making investing decisions.

Now that you know that Trudeau is not some champion of free trade, how likely do you think it is that President Trump is going to back away from a trade war with Canada? Clearly, Trump is going to hit back against Canada hard because Canada really does treat the U.S. bad when it comes to trade.

Canada Will Be Hurt Far More Than The US

The MSM is running stories that the U.S. will be hurt more than Canada in a trade war. That’s another absurd lie. Remember, all the MSM cares about is discrediting Trump and making him a one-term President. Ask yourself this, if two countries get into a trade war and one country is so much smaller than the other that its entire economy is only equal to the size of Texas, which country do you think is going to have a failure and recession of its economy first? In a full blown trade war with the U.S., we could crash Canada’s economy within two years and the Canadian public would oust Trudeau as a failure. Imagine how angry average Canadians would be at Trudeau for escalating a fight with a country far bigger and more powerful than its own especially when you consider that Canada has far more protectionist trade tariffs against the U.S. than we have with them. I think when the Canadian people figure out that President Trump really does have a good argument when it comes to Canada’s own tariffs, they are going to oust Trudeau for being stupid and not working with the U.S. which has put their economy into a recession.

I think President Trump needs to hit Canada with another round of tariffs in the name of national security.

G7 Meeting Was Good Until Trudeau…

The G7 meeting went well and a joint statement was issued that everyone felt good about. Then after President Trump left Canada, Trudeau, doing the bidding of the left and Democrats, went before the cameras and lied about what took place at the G7 according to President Trump. Check out what Trudeau said:

President Trump immediately posted this on Twitter, bypassing the mainstream media:

Lindsey Graham was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo on Fox News this morning and had this to say about Trudeau:

On “Face the Nation,” Larry Kudlow, the top White House economic adviser, says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau instigated a heated dispute over trade at the G7.
