The rise of Donald Trump from Manhattan real estate mogul to national television celebrity to President of the United States was as unprecedented as it was disorienting.

Conrad Black: The SNC-Lavalin affair is overblown, but the Liberals still bungled it

8) I am no stranger to hostile public opinion, I take no issue whatsoever with rational criticism, and do not normally respond to irrational animadversions. However, the degree to which the piece was misconstrued, including by some typically like-minded readers, prompted a reply.

7) The inability of partisan jackals of all stripes to restrain themselves from tearing into the red meat of unproved allegations, rather than uphold the universality of the presumption of innocence, is one of the more troubling realities of our times.

6) Also from the piece: "We should wait for the facts, and if necessary, the adjudication, before condemning anyone." This should be a truism that should go without saying, much less be subjected to vicious derision when it is said.

5) The piece was no endorsement for illegal or unethical activity, if it occurred (and that "if" stands until a court deems otherwise). From the piece: "...if there was wrong-doing, it was by executives, not by the company itself, and the executives can be prosecuted..."

4) However, the piece was by no means an apologia for Trudeau's handling of the matter. It was a (failed) attempt at reigning in the most excitable of the reactionaries, call the appropriate balls and strikes, and offer an apparently unpopular but, I believe, measured opinion.

3) Ivory tower aspersions aside, if crimes were committed, a fine is frequently more appropriate than criminal prosecution. A conviction would preclude SNC-Lavalin from bidding on government contracts, putting 50,000 Canadian jobs at risk. Trudeau was right to weigh the options.

2) The piece's Massey-Ferguson anecdote referred to actions taken before m y time as chairman, it was an era that predated the CFPOA by over 20 years, and prior to the CFPOA, there was an implicit recognition by government of what was required to do business in the third world.

1) Evidently, in light of a small flood of spontaneous voluntary exhibitions of impoverished reading comprehension that followed my latest piece in the National Post, some clarification is required.

is absolutely right about the reality of conducting business in countries where payoffs are the cost of being there. It's not pretty, but it's the truth.

Pithy analysis from ⁦⁩: “Faced with a Trump they could not defeat and cannot destroy, Democrats appear to be entering a frenzy of primal extremism.”
