Echoes of Hillary? Chinese billionaire’s $1M donation to Trudeau Foundation raises “pay for play” questions

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator
 

Are Justin Trudeau, the Liberals and the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation involved in a pay for play scheme similar to what led the FBI to investigate the Clinton Foundation?

In Hillary’s case, there were allegations that foreign governments were buying influence with her and the US state department via massive donations to the Clinton Foundation.

So what should we make of news this week that Justin and the Liberals hosted a fancy fundraiser with Chinese billionaires and communist party officials and that a $1M donation was made to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation from a senior advisor of the communist Chinese government?

Mr Zhang Bin made the donation and was one of at least three Chinese officials in attendance. Bin’s task is to build China’s influence around the world and his work is overseen directly by Beijing.

In addition to the pay for play aspect, watch as I explain why this is becoming a sovereignty issue as we see the outflow of Chinese capital allowing Chinese state influence to grow around the globe.

Despite tremendous economic growth, China is still one of the worst human rights abusers in the world and still a communist country that denies many basic freedoms.

We tend to convince ourselves that economic ties with China justify turning a blind eye to these issues and even Stephen Harper, after a good start standing up to China, backed down in the face of economic benefits.

Donald Trump’s win should mark the perfect opportunity for Canada to side with the US in what will likely be a shift in their policy towards China.

But alas it appears that just like his father, Justin is willing to diverge with US foreign policy and history is repeating itself as Canada again cozies up to the Liberal party’s favourite communists in Cuba and China.

Its 2016 and red is in vogue once more.

The comment about “admiring” the dictatorship of China should have tipped off most people. However, Canada is full of idiots who elected the wannabe dictator anyway!
commented 2016-11-25 22:16:48 -0500
Its unfortunate that, as the Clintons and most dictators he praises, our Fearless Leader Baby Doc Trudeau has no understanding of what corruption is, and that the appearance of corruption does matter.

All he has ever know is free stuff. Trust funds and numbered corporation accounts has shielded this poor thing from the real world and the need to think.

Yes, 39% of Canadians were wrong.

I think government spending should be crowd sourced. If you agree with the agenda show your support by prying the money out of your own wallet, not mine. It would be interesting to see what would actually be followed through.

Pay for play, Justin is really following in Hillery’s footsteps, buddy buddy.

Leviticus 2013 wrote
“I don’t know what anybody or why anybody would be afraid of separation.” Good question, it needs to come out of the closet, it can then be examined, talked about, an account of pro and cons determined, and lastly, an appropriate conclusion and/or a set of actions set. Is this one of the political correct things we are afraid to talk about here on the right?

I guess my biggest question is why is it that every time we vote we have to take a chance that the politician we are setting in to the prime administration spot..!!? Why is it that we have to take a chance..!!! why can’t there be guarantees in it for us do you know, the little people that provide the money that supports the country and every system within that country… Why is it that we have to suffer through liars and cheats and gangsters and weaklings that can be bought off or bullied or manipulated… When we the people feel that they are disappointing us why is it that we just have to go along with the disappointment until the end of that tenure.
Enough is enough… I believe that western tolerance has run out for eastern politicians.
Brad Trost for the western alliance presidency.
Brian Jean for Senator to represent which was once Alberta.
In the new alliance everybody would be working because we would have control over all of our resources and not dictated to… A couple of things are for sure nobody would be hungry not even the poor or the homeless as well nobody would live in poverty unless they wanted to..
$190 billion in eight years wasted on Quebec would’ve gone a long way providing infrastructure for the new republic..
I don’t know what anybody or why anybody would be afraid of separation… I have heard something once from a friend of mine who is a psychologist and he says
“some people are just afraid of success”
These assholes are only empowered because we empower them… Pull the support and they crumble like a Sandcastle.

John S… Kelly Leach is part of the swamp along with most of the other conservatives both federal and provincial he…
Brian Jean for Alberta Premiere.! Brad Trost for PM.!
And if Ottawa won’t let that happen because of people like Kelly Leach voting for Bill C 16 and all the morons that think the children age 16 know what’s going on in politics and that it’s not just about legal marijuana for kiddies, then Brad Trost should be the first president of the western republic formally known as the western provinces of Canada and Brian Jean running second in command to make sure that we are not infiltrated and taken over by any liberal Marxist Communist politician.
I feel sorry for the eastern and central provinces but they voted liberal… They continue to vote Liberal… You get the government you deserve..!!
commented 2016-11-24 23:50:18 -0500
John S there is elitism and corruption in communist and marxist run governments as well. And the people are powerless and subjugated. NO THANKS!
commented 2016-11-24 23:49:04 -0500
John S sorry but democracy is not served by heavy state control and communists and marxists are murdering scum. Your anti trade stance would be far more damaging as every little thing would be argued over for a long time. And your party would be just as corrupt as any other, they have just not had a chance yet.

The simplest way to fix Canadian politics is to ban all donating and to have state funded elections if people truly want to end the corruption. Everyone should know that the Manning Centre also has massive donations and don’t forget about the scandals at the Montreal Port Authority. Even Dean Del Mastro walked away in cuffs on his legs and Penashue was found guilty of electoral fraud as well, and a recall by-election had to be called in Labrador.

It is obvious that the Conservatives and Liberals are both corrupt and no other party has ever been given a chance federally from the small parties.

The best way as I said to fix Canadian elections is either ending the loopholes and fixing the Conservative changes that they made in 2011, and to lower the donations or simply have state-funded elections and meritocracy in politics.

People should also remember Jason Kenney’s fake immigration ceremony headed by Sun News back when he was immigration minister. These conservatives are just better at hiding their criminality.
commented 2016-11-24 22:27:41 -0500
The NDP doesn’t support TPP federally. It is obvious that when the Conservatives say under Leitch that they want to drain the swamp they are simply copying Trump only with Leitch on immigration, but even that is suspect because now even Trump is renegotiating on abortion, Iran, infrastructure, and many other issues.

The Conservatives and Liberals economically want to sign the most destructive free trade deal. That was made absolutely imperative when each Conservative candidate focused on saying they wanted the TPP and more free trade deals. They are massive globalists and why even on Wikipedia it says they are an economic liberal party and for globalization.

Only the Progressive Canadian party and the Canadian Action party and the Communist and Marxist Leninists are for abandoning massive free trade although the Progressive Canadian party is for keeping free trade with tweaks.

Tater Tot has learned well from his Clinton pals and their bogus “Fund”. “When you can grab the last tax payer dollar from out of my hand it is time for you to leave, GrassHopper”.
commented 2016-11-24 22:00:40 -0500
Of course, we all know that Trudeau has been globe trotting to make sure he meets with as many countries as possible before Trump takes over. Get to the first so he can make the first deals.
He’s now going to pay African countries to start abortions and contraception, since he’s a feminist.
He is satan himself.
commented 2016-11-24 21:55:35 -0500
Leviticus:
Ditto! Brad Trost is definitely to be supported.
Leitch is strictly there for her own agenda (LGBT?).
She is simply using the ‘Trump brand’ to make a name for herself otherwise she wouldn’t have been noticed.
commented 2016-11-24 21:22:53 -0500
Kelly Leach voted in favor of Bill C 16 which would advantage the Liberals through a change in the voting demographics… Kelly Leach is a communist globalist liberal supporter who with popular vote would destroy Canada in much the same fashion as Justin Trudeau..
Brad Trost did not vote for Bill C 16 in fact vehemently opposes it.
commented 2016-11-24 21:01:02 -0500
Brad Trost is our best bet!
commented 2016-11-24 20:52:06 -0500
If this was Harper it would be the crime of the century.
YAY, commies buying the country through Justin the halfwit. Time for a civil war.
commented 2016-11-24 20:36:18 -0500
Kelly Leach is a globalist and stands up and votes with the liberals…
Brad Trost should be Canada’s next prime minister and if he’s not he should be the president of the Western alliance which was once formally known as the western provinces of Canada..
Hyacinth don’t hold your breath waiting for the RCMP to do anything because like the governor general that is supposed to stop overreach of ambitious governments like this… they’re all on the same payroll..
Separation is our only hope…!!
Like I said I feel sorry for everybody else but the Maritimes voted liberal Quebec voted liberal Ontario voted liberal they can have them, we need to not have them in the west
And I’m real sure that that was a federal vote for the 16-year-old children but I’m going to go look further into it right now

Junior did not get where he is without help.
There are ways to circumvent laws, a number of Canadian politicians understand this concept very well being a lawyer/barrister before entering politics.

Let’s not forget the “legal” help as well:
http://ipolitics.ca/2016/03/30/election-2015-saw-large-influx-of-third-party-spending-elections-canada/
“In 2015, 115 third parties registered with Elections Canada – up by more than half from 2011, when 55 registered with Elections Canada. In 2008, 64 had registered. Not only did twice as many third parties get involved, but the election period was significantly longer than elections past – one of Canada’s longest on record – and that brought the spending limit up considerably.
Third-party spending was limited at $439,410.81 in total for a group, and $8,788.22 for a given riding.”

“I feel bad for the Maritimers because they let their children vote at 16 now in federal elections so they will have a Liberal government forever, and I feel bad for the innocent people of Quebec and Ontario but no longer in the west can we afford to have this mad man in charge of the country… We need a separation party.”

Sorry Leviticus, it is provincially allowing the 16-17 year old vote not federally.

Further info on that: The vote did not get a clear majority either in the plebiscite. CBC spun the story, but they did report a few accurate facts:

(The BS – from the Liberal Premiere)
“MacLauchlan said that the plebiscite showed the people have a clear appetite for change, but during debate on Motion 80 in the first session on Tuesday, some members didn’t agree.”
(The truth – from another Liberal)
“Under what fantasy does having 36 per cent voter turnout, obtaining only 52 per cent support for mixed-member proportional, and only on the fourth ballot of a preferential vote, constitute a mandate for change ?” said Liberal backbench MLA Bush Dumville
Dumville also told the House he and other MLAs had been subjected to “social media harassment” at the hands of proponents of proportional representation and the #honourthevote campaign.
He also said the campaigns were part of a “well-funded lobby by special interest groups,” and challenged the media to find the source of that funding."

Leviticus, what should be a major concern both provincially and federally is the interference from these “legal” third parties. This is where an RCMP investigation should be called for and not advocating for the separation of the West. Unless the rot is first cleared up separation would do no good for the rot is deeply embedded in each province.

Well that makes a lot of sense… Justin Trudeau is a very poor businessman, he gives China $250 million they laundry it for him and give them back 1 million… Wow we have the stupidest prime minister on the planet. He should have at least held out for 20%.. (add nausea)
I feel bad for the Maritimers because they let their children vote at 16 now in federal elections so they will have a Liberal government forever, and I feel bad for the innocent people of Quebec and Ontario but no longer in the west can we afford to have this mad man in charge of the country… We need a separation party.
Perhaps Brad Trost will become disenfranchised with the inability to repair what Justin Trudeau has destroyed and will lead all western folks that have come to their senses out of this nightmare and into freedom as a separate country..!!!
Long live western Canada
long live western justice

Well, I guess this explains why Justin Trudeau spoke a couple of years ago of his admiration for “China’s basic dictatorship” (or words to that effect). It seems pretty well all politicians are prone to the corruption of power and money (ie, bribes) – perhaps that’s human nature – but Liberals (Dems in the States) sure seem to be the most vulnerable to this. I wonder why that is.

This should be illegal, and the funds should be seized!
