PM Harper forced into a COALITION with Separatists and Socialists!

C-BQ

Political irony -While running TV ads accusing the Liberals of plotting a coalition with the NDP and Bloc Québécois, the Conservatives hypocrtically joined forces with those two parties to avoid defeat in Parliament. “I’ve taken my responsibility, which is I’ve said I can’t support this government any longer. It’s up to the other parties to decide what they’re going to do – Liberal Leader Michael Ignatief

 

Commons passes confidence motion CBC.ca –  The House of Commons has passed a crucial ways-and-means motion that has temporarily saved Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s minority government from potentially facing an election campaign.

 

And a Prime Minister who has railed about the dangers of the Liberals forming a coalition with “socialists and the separatists” now really does the same thing basically… and he lives on to talk about it.. and the Liberals have become the Official oppostion party now in reality. A constant theme of Stephen Harpers common attack  ads focuses on Liberal’s Ignatieff’s apparent willingness to govern in a coalition with the Bloc Quebecois and the NDP when the House appeared ready to fall last December. Ironically, it is those same “socialists and separatists” who are saving Prime Minister Stephen Harper from facing the electorate . While running TV ads accusing the Liberals of plotting a coalition with the NDP and Bloc Québécois, the Conservatives joined forces with those two parties to avoid defeat in Parliament. To trigger an election, all three opposition parties would have to vote to defeat the government.
 
 
Refuse the leftist, socialist, seperatist Bloc Support? Harper cannot? Harper now staying in power clearly outdoes even his own past  “socialist” and “separatist” labels, Conservatives humbled, they would still need opposition party support to govern. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/10/15/canada-harper-failed-again-in-an-attempt-to-win-majority-government/
 
 Bloc support for Tories to avert election call.. The Bloc Québécois will support the Conservative government’s budget motion on Friday, averting a federal election call this week. The government is bringing forward a financial ways-and-means motion, which includes the popular tax credits for home renovation. It is considered a confidence issue and its defeat could trigger an election. Bloc Leader Gilles Duceppe said his party had gone over the motion and supports it, in particular the tax credit. His party asked for the tax credit last November, and Duceppe said it would be idiotic to vote against it. The Bloc’s support means the minority Conservative government will survive at least until the first week of October, when the Liberals plan to introduce a no-confidence motion. But Duceppe said the government can’t count on his support for that one.  “On each issue we’re considering it at its own value. All in all, if we’re asked if we have confidence in [this] government, the answer is no.”   Separatists in bed with Conservative party that said they would never work with ‘the separatists’. SHAME Harper, your time is ticking. This country deserves so much better.  First the Tories say that the Liberals are evil if they support the socialists and the seperatists. Currently, the minority Conservatives are kept alive by being supported by the separtists and the socialists.  Then the socialists say the will support a right wing approach to unemployment. Then the Bloc says they will support the federalists. The Conservatives are being propped up by the socialists and the separatists. Who would have thought? NOW…. Does anyone believe that when they are voting they are actually voting for someone who really believes something?http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/15/bloc-election-motion.html
 
 Canada’s prime minister Stephen Harper GOVERNMENT Harper to Survive  THIS WEEK WITH With Bloc Quebecois, Separatist Help. Imagine that the Conservatives going now to bed with their dreaded  devil.. Divide and conquer is now the BQ strategy, and it could just mean for now a Conservative majority. The Bloc Quebecois, Conservative  play comes at an opportune time, with Canada’s political parties  splintered mainly in four..  In elections past, the Conservative focus was on Ontario as the primary battleground and now it too is even on Quebec. Now in the past during the current election campaign Stephen Harper was calculatedly portraying the Conservatives as the only ‘real’ federalist choice is now rather seen as one that relies now on the BQ separatist to stay in Power. Clearly Ironic. If Harper pulls it off and gets the thumbs-up also  from his disenfranchised Westerners, with Bloc Quebecois voters, without eroding too much of his base in the West, he will be lucky for now only still…  There has been  clearly  in the past, present animosity between the two provinces, of Alberta and Quebec, and each time the Harper team had made a Quebec-friendly move the blogosphere buzzed with clearly offended, angry  Westerners.  For Traditionally, the clearly also self centered Albertans have believed that Ottawa has given Quebec far too much power,  While the Liberals and the NDP presented and ‘attack against Alberta and its evil oil-based economy to win the hearts and minds of the East’ and by detailing that the  western Harper as a person who has a scary hidden agenda’ strategies. So how will they react now in Alberta? How all ironic, and rather pathetic too.  Politics often now does even make strange bed fellows, and even my enemy, the enemies of my big enemy can be next  my friend.. NDP joins Bloc in propping up Tories
 
Harper’s own past “separatist VETO” message worked very well only outside of Quebec. By blaming the past federal parties coalition for their willingness to break up the country by working with the separatists, he Harper was able to portray them, the  coalition as an un-Canadian coalition  at least in the eyes of western English Canadians , How does Harper look in their eyes now? an un-Canadian even  with his own mud on his face?
 
 Sadly now Harper will accept any help, do anything to stay in power again? and so next now in Alberta they will say nice thing about the separatist, Bloc Quebecois?
 
For many still Harper is hypocrite,  through his demonstrated  approach using any means for his twisted desires for maintain his rather uncontested and unrestricted power.

“This is no time for backroom deals with the separatists,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper  had once said too… but now Sleeping with the leftist, socialist , separatist Bloc for Harper  now is better than fighting them.. The past results of Harper’s own  attacks on the Bloc show that Harper’s this supposed battle to keep the country together resulted that  in Quebec that the Bloc gained more support while all other parties remained or lost ground. The same Conservative Stephen Harper who has in the past criticized now the Liberals and NDP for associating with the Bloc Québécois has now to thank them, the Bloc Québécois,  for rescuing him from a defeat in the House of Parliament  this week now.

The Conservatives, who hold 143 of the Commons’ 308 seats, need only one of the other three parties to vote with the government to avoid being toppled in a confidence vote. The Liberals have 77 seats, the NDP, 36, and the Bloc Québécois, 48. Forget  all of the spins, the values, principles openly proclaimed now, for every one of the federal politicians is merely figfhting to keep their pay and perks coming, or to get more?

The word “socialist” was, is too often misconstrued by the Tories and  for them takes on a new negative meaning… a meaning equivalent to being a communist.. But irrationally and hypocritical the Conservatives, Tories seem Cleary not to mind themselves now providing social welfare to big business still, such as the Banks, the Corporations, telecommunication firms, and automotive makers….. 

The Liberals and the others have now always  supposedly become in the West  the very bad socialists, the known nation-wreckers for even getting into bed with the separatists,  in spite in the past federal Conservatives doing even  much the same thing.. 
  
Now we all were often also    told that  we all had an elected  Conservative government, didn’t we? But really that was Not true at all.  The fact that the Conservatives only  got a second-in-a-row Minority win, not a Majority win, for  more than 60 per cent of the Canadians actually had voted against them has somehow become next a lying spin the convincing Majority Conservative win. Now Harper and we all do sees what a minority government really is like.. it has to sleep with the others, get their approvals..
  
We were also being told we were going to have a coalition government of socialists and separatists, which we all had specifically voted against? And who is now coalitioning firstly with the separatists but Harper himself.. Such big Harper  lies still had shown to us all what the Conservatives wrongfully  are really like still too. Big  Liars.
 
“a recent speech Harper gave to his supporters, in which the prime minister warned that if the Conservatives don’t get a majority, the Liberals will govern in a coalition, “propped up by the socialists and the separatists.” “I find it curious that after weeks of berating the idea of a coalition, the prime minister seems to be hard at work forming one himself and with people that he referred to until this morning as socialists,” Ignatieff said. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/14/parliament-house-commons-vote281.html
 
“When I raise the subject of politics with my grandfather, it usually comes down to the statement, “They’re all crooks!” I used to have faith in our politicians to put the interests of Canadians first, but I’ve become less idealistic. It seems to me the time for greatness in Canadian politics has come and gone.” http://www.queensjournal.ca/story/2009-09-18/opinions/raising-political-bar/
 
Reality Canada’s prime Minister Stephen Harper Harper had engaged in double talk again. for in 2008  Stephen Harper and his supporters were denouncing the Liberal Party under then-leader Stephen Dion for entering into a coalition with the “separatist” Bloc Quebecois and the “socialist” NDP. It is Harper himself who will be propped up by these very “socialists” and “separatists” he has so denounced. Previously also  the NDP party too had engaged in  double talk , the NDP leader Jack Layton had denounced the Liberals for failing to providing a “real” opposition because the latter were continually voting to prop up the Conservatives on budgets and non-confidence issues. Layton accused the Liberals of failing to stand up for the working class and the unemployed and thus he also had stated that the NDP was the true opposition to Stephen Harper. At one press conference, Layton stated with respect to Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff that “you can’t do that (support the government) and pretend to be the alternate to Mr. Harper.” But  now? Jack Layton hypocritically was  voting to support the same bad government and cannot be still trying to retain the mantle of being “the alternate to Mr. Harper.” Layton has gone down in the popularity polls as a direct result now too.

For the Liberals and Ignatieff, all this was the best possible outcome. The Conservatives and the NDP came out looking bad, as liars, The Liberal leader Ignatieff strengthened his stature as a clear leader by clearly opposing the Harper government and he finally broke the curse of the Liberals being seen as mere Harper’s enablers. At the same time, because of the Bloc and NDP supporting the government, Ignatieff was able to avoid immediately  an election and was given more time to properly prepare for it now.

Too often women have been put down by men..

 
 
0poorwmn

 

Give me the direct verse that says women are called only to be evangelists The word missionary has the same root in Greek as apostle; both mean one sent forth. Today’s missionary is only a true apostle if he has been sent specifically by God, and if this apostolic authority is operating in his ministry. “The word apostle in the Greek is apostollos or “one sent forth” as an ambassador of the Gospel. An apostle is a minister sent directly by God to do a specific work. A number of the saints of God and even Jesus himself were called apostles in the New Testament. The Apostle is defined as a messenger, and yet the same description is almost given to the Evangelist too, the difference is the word special is added to the Apostle.. Even the office of elders is mis-defined today, and is limited to being pastors, and spiritual guides, when we all can know that in the new testament, the apostles, and prophets, were also called elders now.,.. not just the pastors or evangelists, teachers.. In the he New testament Evangelists, plural term too, they were also healers, not just preachers, traveling missionaries. Read the Bible for yourself and see this fact, truth. (Rom 16:7 KJV) Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. Imagine that Junia is a woman, and is proclaimed to be an additional apostle as well…

As far as I am concerned a Women can be a Church Pastor if she has her husband’s permission.. and even  the vice president of the United States, or a President. We can use more Women like her now in Canadian Politics for it has been too clearly evident that the men have not being doing a good enough job or we would not be having so many minority governments, and useless elections in Canada.

In the Old Testament Miriam was a prophetess (Exodus 15:20) as was Huldah (2 Kings 22:14) and Noadiah (Neh. 6:14).  Prophetesses from God spoke with authority and was ordained by God that they did so.  But, most pertinent to the topic at hand is Deborah who was a judge in Israel (Judges 4:4-5).  Deborah exercised governmental power over the nation of Israel.  She was most definitely in a place of authority over men in government and there is no condemnation of her being a judge found anywhere in scripture.

But, some might ask if Deborah was in a place of authority in Israel, why can’t a woman be in a place of authority in the church?

(1 Tim. 3:2; Titus 1:6).  Also, 1 Tim. 2:11-12 says, “Let a woman quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve.”

(Rom 16:7 KJV)  Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.

Well anyway there was a women Apostle, Junia, note worthy too amongst the Apostles, and she had a place of authority.. an apostle is a Missionary.. women can be mssionaries on the foreign mission field.. but not in a local church? it all sounds confusing to me too.

I thought that Christian women also were not allowed to have short hair cuts, and what do husbands allow it in the  church now too?  A variety of more fundamental Christian religions discourage short hair on women, some congregations prohibit hair cuts beyond a trim for women. It tends to vary congregation to congregation; as opposed to being an aspect of a particular denomination. I know the belief is based on passages in the old testament, likely the those that indicate that women should not try to look like men. These denominations also tend to prohibit pants on women, jewelry beyond a watch and wedding band, make-up, etc. Are they extremists or legalists too?

I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. 5 And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. 6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
11 In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God. 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God. I Corinthians 11:3-6

1 Cor. 11:2-16 – essentially, women should cover their heads in church, and men should not. Some interpret this as being a thing of long vs. short hair.

1 Peter 3:3 – women shouldn’t put too much emphasis on outer beauty, like braiding their hair.

One of the most popular views today is that the head covering was actually the woman’s hair. The exegesis of the text that adopts this view keys in on verse 15. “…but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.”  It is quite plain.

It reveals that the early generation of believers understood the head covering to be a cloth veil—not long hair. As Tertullian quoted in an earlier post indicated, even the women who did not wish to follow Paul’s teaching were not claiming that Paul was talking about long hair. Rather, they simply wore a small cloth in minimal obedience to his teaching.

Numbers 6:1-21 – Nazarite vow – the Nazarite shaves his head at the beginning of the vow, and then cannot cut his hair for the duration of the vow. The character Samson (as in Samson and Delilah) was a Nazarite. in Numbers 6: 5,6, and 13 we read, “All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the Lord, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow. All the days that he separateth himself unto the lord he shall come at no dead body. and this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.”

or was it men not being allowed to have long hair?  I Corinthians 11:14 says, “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?”

.

Has God called pastors to be CEOs of religious organizations, or has he called men to be spiritual leaders over the churches of Christ? Neither… the elders run the church, and pastors are just one of the many church elders.. Even if she is a woman,, BASED ON ISOLATED, DISTORTED VERSES SOME PERSONS WOULD HAVE US MAKE a false Positive Confession of our faith. God still Is Not A Respecter of Persons is a truth we need to always remember too    https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2009/07/20/kathryn-kuhlman/

Elections Canada 2008

 

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/11/it-is-still-canadas-prime-minister-stephen-harper-who-is-undemocratic/

Canada’s new Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, one step forward and two steps backwards,  has too often  shown he will do anything to cling to power, he cannot be trusted to keep his promises. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, supposedly weary of waiting for the opposition to bring down his minority government, broke  his own promises of a fixed election date and pulled the election plug himself Sunday to end 31 months of the new Conservative rule.  This move sends Canadians to the polls for the third time in four years. And they likely will return anyway another new minority government but anyway it will be good to see some of the present pretentious, useless federal cabinet Ministers and their associates lose their jobs.. especially all those friends they had hired now and had lying said they would not too.. so what else is new. As you can see by many many internet posts, I for one have dealt with many of them, and they were almost all clearly useless, pretentious, inadequate..  the Conservatives are known to be liars, not just alcoholics? Against the backdrop of a clearly weakening economy, Harper asked Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean to dissolve Canada’s 39th Parliament so that a national vote can be held Oct. 14 — the day after Thanksgiving.

What we all do need to be reminded of what we are not thankful for.. the too often more broken promises by liars for we still seem to elect Liars into office, and I hope we can break this tradition soon! And please do stop electing the clearly pretend Christians now as well for Prime Ministers too.

Canada Votes – Election 2008 Harper hopes this goes by unnoticed
 During the last federal election in 2006, Stephen Harper’s Conservatives accused the Liberal government of treating public money as a “party election fund” and taking part in a “vote-buying” spree thanks to nearly $20 billion in promises. This time around, starting June 2 and running through the months leading up to the campaign kickoff, the Conservative government itself pledged $15 billion. http://lfpress.ca/newsstand/canadavotes/news/2008/09/14/6759361-sun.html
 
“We’ve been promised things before.” by Harper and many of his promises were not kept ..
