Limos, photo shoots, rock stars: Justin’s Liberals live like celebrities on your money

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

For the first time in ten months, a mainstream media news outlet actually criticized Justin Trudeau. Well, not him. But a Liberal cabinet minister.

Health Minister Jane Philpott was caught giving huge limo contracts to a campaign volunteer, including a whopping $1,700 just for one day.

So the media were primed when the second story hit, yesterday, surprisingly by Glen McGregor of CTV. He found out that Catherine McKenna, the environment minister, spent more than $6,000 on a vanity photographer at last November’s Paris global warming conference.

They’re photographs an intern could have taken, and were put on the ministry’s website. Until this story broke, they had fewer than 100 views.

As Sheila Gunn Reid has reported, McKenna already has a team of 24 people who work on her tweets and photos and other vanity work.

Stephen Harper was frugal. He didn’t have two nannies on the public payroll. He refused his super-pension. He fired a cabinet minister, Bev Oda, for expensing a $16 dollar orange juice. The greatest scandal in his nine years as PM was when his chief of staff, Nigel Wright, cut a personal cheque TO THE GOVERNMENT, to cover an expense question for a Senator, Mike Duffy.

But the Libranos are back now...

NEXT: Ben Shapiro from The Daily Wire joins me to discuss the Clinton family's latest lie: The vow that Hillary will  disassociate herself from the Clinton Foundation if she's elected president.

THEN: David Goldman (a.k.a., Spengler) from "The Asia Times Online" tells me why Donald Trump could actually be the one who fixes the Middle East!

FINALLY: Your messages to me about last night's show. (Not everyone is a fan!)

Rebel you are worth every penny!! & in a perfect world you would get equal monies from government as cbc does. But NO, we are paying the government funded media to lie to us and only conservative view we get is off youtube. I don’t watch t.v anymore, only youtube.

Bill Elder. Well said and true.

Peter … The entire comment was satire/sarcastic. I was taking a shot at lefty double standards. I’m floored that you think I’m a socialist troll!!! Is it because I suggested that all politicians screw us at some point?

There’s one question that I’ve never seen asked during this whole Clinton for president affair:
If Hillary becomes the next POTUS will she speak to muslim delegates face to face like we see her everyday (as if they’d listen to a woman, anyway), or will she have Bill do all the talking at that time while she sits in the back of the room silently with her head covered?
Hmmmm.

- This underlines why only Conservatives should form the government. It’s the only time the mainstream media will pretend to do it’s job. The Liberals have contempt for taxpayers & it shows. This, of course, is just the beginning.

- A Hillary presidency will base it’s policies entirely based on who donates what to the Clinton Foundation. They were able to rig the Democrat primaries but rigging the general election is not going to be so simple. There’s every indication that the polls have been weighted in Hillary’s favor. In any event, the debates are coming up in a few weeks & it’s questionable if Hillary has the ability to survive them physically or emotionally.

- If Bush was serious about his war on terror he would have attacked Saudi Arabia & Iran – the biggest sponsors of terrorism. Obama’s presidency has been a disaster for the US & the world.

from our Welland paper yesterday
documents released via federal access to information laws show that the single biggest meal expense filed by anyone in that delegation was made by Max Guenette, who was, at the time, a senior communications bureaucrat in McKenna’s department.

During his 16 days in Paris, Guenette billed the taxpayer for $4,599 in meals. That’s $288 a day. Just for food.

The second biggest meal claim from Paris was made by Matt Jones, currently listed as the executive director of policy development at Environment Canada. His tastes added up to $4,176.44 for the 12 days he spent in Paris. Wendy Weise, another communications advisor in McKenna’s department, spent $3,966.95 on meals over 15 days.

McKenna, who spent 15 days in Paris, filed meal claims worth about $1,500.

Neil Kulin said, “You mean Stephen Harper used tax payer’s money to live frivolously while ignoring the needs of his country t o o?”

Well actually, he did not waste the tax payer dollars. Just the opposite. But keep believing your lie, socialist trolls cannot do otherwise.

Neil said, "A n d it was published in a non biased respectable and honest document like macleans? "

If you think MacLean’s is non-biased, then you really are living the typical socialist/progressive fantasy world when unicorns roam and pixie dust grows on trees and powers the world. MacLean’s is far from non-biased. They are far left wing.

Mother of God … You mean Stephen Harper used tax payer’s money to live frivolously while ignoring the needs of his country t o o? A n d it was published in a non biased respectable and honest document like macleans? That makes our current politicians antics/buffoonery/laziness perfectly acceptable then.
commented 2016-08-24 03:00:34 -0400
From the October 2009 issue of the Maclean’s: “Of course, the best-paying job of all is prime minister. Stephen Harper will earn $315,462 this year, double what backbenchers make… the lowliest MP earns about four times what an average Canadian takes home.”

Yo…..d.h. and Ron boy……get room you two fucktards.

Idiots.
commented 2016-08-24 01:46:15 -0400
LOL

B… But conservatives did it too! Therefore Trudeau doing is ok. Good one D.H. Let’s see some sources for those expenses. I see you’re still using the internet despite being against oil pipelines.

“Poor Ezra has little to talk about. The self promotion in term of dollars on behalf of the backward CPC was crouding a billion dollars. Ezra Levant—a moron with a big mouth.”

“crouding?” Um, sure Ronny.

Gotta love childish lefties like Ron C , he gets all angry and calls names when the truth is spoken.
commented 2016-08-24 01:23:16 -0400
Ron C Awww poor little baby, is Justin the retard being exposed , are the greedy corrupt libs being exposed? You are such a pathetic twerp.
commented 2016-08-24 01:21:18 -0400
D.H. Chaisson actually Sun news at the time criticized the conservatives and Harper when they wasted tax money. Now tell me which of those were at our expense bozo.
commented 2016-08-23 23:24:00 -0400
Ron – quit being a SJW cry-baby and just go away!! Take all your troll buddies with you.
GOOD-BYE!!

Ah, you do make me laugh, and cry. I wish you could be the CBC and all their subsidiaries. Maybe someday. I personally don’t think we need credits since we’re all in this together

ron christensen.. a turdo lover with an even bigger mouth, lefties can never tell the truth but they sure like to distort the facts

I really hate to see Ezra Levant’s feelings hurt on Liberal spending so I decided to remind him of similar Conservative spending that he didn’t mind in order to help him stop crying:

1. Peter MacKay’s photo op wit a fake plane = $47,000
2. One Stephen Harper baseball game attendance in New York = $45,000
3. One single pizza lunch (garlic bread and Caesar salad included) for 330 Conservative political aides = $7,000

Hope this makes Ezra Levant feel better!

If there is not two or three sides to a story you have Communism plain and simple. Seems the left like it that way.

Ezra is a good man. I too am a good man. Nothing good I have done has gone unpunished. But I will continue being a good man!
