Trudeau’s first budget: $8M for counter-terrorism -- but $675M for the CBC

Rebel Staff
 

It's simple: The first budget from Justin Trudeau's Liberals is a budget for the takers, not the makers.

Old Age retirement eligibility is being reduced by two years. That’s nuts. Life expectancy now is twenty years higher than when public pensions were created, and frankly, boomers are the wealthiest generation in history.

The Court Challenges program is back: taxing ordinary Canadians to pay lawyers to sue the government to expand human rights complaints. Income splitting? Tax credits for kids stuff like sports and arts? Gone.

But a whopping $1.9 billion for arts groups. Not art people want to pay for, though. Obscure, political crap that wouldn’t exist on its own.

This will continue for years — four, and if Justin is reelected, eight.

Don’t tell the low-information millennials who voted for Trudeau, but they’ll be the ones left paying for the debt that Trudeau wracks up, for the rest of their lives.

Professor Ian Lee of the Sprott School of Management joins me today with his candid assessment of the new budget. He says that he isn’t always against deficit spending, but now, when Canada isn’t in economic crisis, stimulate spending is a terrible idea.

Then I talk about President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba with historian Humberto Fontova, an expert of Castro’s Cuba, and on “progressive” hero and mass murderer Che Guevara.

Fontova shares some statistics comparing Castro with Stalin and Hitler that will shock you.

Finally, your messages to me, good and bad -- plus my request that you sign our NEW petition at HonourRobFord.com; we've come up with a way to pay tribute to Toronto's former mayor in a way I think he'd approve up.

Yet again Ezra, another good show. Keep up the good work and keep up the fight.

What a nice pittance. Turns out the Summer of Rape will also include some bombings.

Here’s hoping the first device vaporizes Junior and Kathy at a gay pride parade

CBC doesn,t think there are muslim terrorists out there. They are jihadists. There is no terrorism so why is he wasting 8 mil when he can give the money to the UN to fund the palestinian cause to fight the jewish people.

This is no accident that Trudeau is going much further into debt. He sees what’s happening globally. There is so much government debt around the world, that he knows the entire world economy is going to collapse. So why not spend and rack up more debt? It will never be paid off. Consider it a massive tax and confiscation of private money in history.

8 million to fight terrorism but meanwhile he pledge’s 80+ for abortions in third world countries? That’s just as ridiculous. A rich kid irresponsibly spending someone else’s money sums it up.

Ron G Penson says: “It’s time the old crock Canadians take this country back. We need a Tory just right of center to lead the charge and unfortunately, they will have to come from the east.”

Are you talking about Michael Krchnak?

Yes it is true that Levant wants to copy Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin and wants Canada to go down that road of flat taxes, war on demand, racing to the bottom, normalized states of fear, and he feels that Canada should be completely open to the world and for Canada to have no national identity or protection of key resources.

Globalists always feel that the nation must be sold out and that we do not need no independence in any way.

Which is why the Conservative party nowadays compared with moderate PCs of the past want based on their grassroots selling of crown corporations, selling out key industries, free trade to the nth degree, pledging war on anyone and everyone, and finally probably having an elected senate and judges.

This should never happen and their agenda was thoroughly and accurately rejected by the voting public. People saw the lies of the senate, spending on MPs and the constant atmosphere that the Tories created with the public sector, scientists and media. Canada should have more independence so that the nation can determine its future. Harper and the PMO also had too much power. These are areas that supporters of the Conservative party ignore. As a minor party supporter, I have to say that they caused 60 to 70% of the electorate to be dissatisfied with the Conservative party, and this is because they had omnibus bills and they got so consumed by their power. They just had no ideas at the end.

Which is why Canada needs a serious option to challenge the three big parties, and the Greens are not serious. Canada needs a nationalist option or a centralist option between the CONs and the Libs.

I support more independent media to allow for people to make up their own minds, but what has to happen is money to be taken out of politics so that people can win on their merits.

This is something Rebel never covers. Canada is US-lite on democracy, economics, foreign policy. People want true national identity and real change. New parties would flush out the old ideas. Thank heavens Reaganism is in its final days!

The class ACT THAT IS the CBC is a cultural highway for Canada. The filth of the Rebel is an anti- intellectual cult led by a flute playing con man who bilks dummies out of their money to put food on his plate. Ezra Levant couldn’t find a job anywhere else. Not one mainstream outlet would have him. Nobody would want him. He is a kind of abhorrant deviant who attracts bigots and racists with not answers, but worthless comments designed to spread hate, all the while, stretching and bending the truth to suit his agenda and his followers emotional anger.

@bruce Clark I think I’ll take your advice and ignore him . As for the money don’t worry about it because we already pay enough for ass clowns like him ! We could use the money to bet on the soccer game where little Ronnies head is the ball ! LMAO

I have noticed Phil and it gets worse each day. So much for Trudunce’s open and transparent policy. And if I have to see one more news story about the poor entitled refugees here I’m going scream. Trump is definitely on the right track on so many levels, particularly about the controlled media.

It’s time the old stock Canadians take this country back. We need a Tory just right of center to lead the charge and unfortunately, they will have to come from the east. After what the east has done to us and our open resentment of them of late, they will never trust anyone from the west again.

Ever notice how more and more the news outlets are NOT ALLOWING comments on mainstream media when it comes to Trudeau and his Liberal minions ? Trudeau says Canada is not at war with ISIS. No comments allowed. Trudeau says he’s looking at Bombardier billion dollar bailout. No comments allowed. Trudeau say we may spend more money on aid to buy a seat at the UN security council. No comments allowed.

The CBC is bad , but CTV is even worse. They controlled the media coverage during the last election to cover up for numb skull Trudeau and they are continuing their deception. The readers are not allowed to express their opinions any longer except for selected articles that are generally meaningless drivel.

The CBC, CTV, Global, etc. are the greatest propaganda machine since Joseph Goebels in Nazi Germany.

And where will this get Canada? Deep into debt, scorned by the rest of NATO, and a high probability of being the next ISIS terrorist victims. They have already killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and W.O.Vincent Patrice, yet Trudeau claims that Canada is not at war with ISIS?

The entire media scam is to keep Trudeau hearing only the voices of his sychophant followers. It reminds me of the Nutty King in Lord of the Rings and Grima Wormtongue ( being played by Gerald Butts). Just keep the brainless fool Trudeau hearing only sunny ways and selfie days and he will be ignorant of reality.

Trudeau said Conservative deficits were evil and the Liberals wouldn’t support deficits, then he said that the Liberal would run moderate deficits for 3 years at $10 billion a year, the the Min. of Finance said that this current budget would be $18.9 billion, then Trudeau is all smiles when he brings in a $29.6 billion deficit !

Still, there are those Ron Christensons in the crowd that sing the praises of lying Trudeau and his mongrel hordes.

Canadians aren’t happy unless someone is kicking them in the teeth !

We all grew up watching the CBC, as it was the only game in town until CTV and Global came on board. Most intelligent people eventually adjusted their antennas to find PBS and CBS just across the border. That was in the early 70’s. Since then, and especially now, the CBC has become irrelevant. No amount of money shoveled at them will change their left wing view of the world. Their sports and news coverage is crap and they don’t deserve one thin dime of public money, yet as long as they spew their rhetoric concerning politics they will be rewarded by whichever party they help win an election. Enjoy your $645 million gift for misleading Canadian voters.

I actually believe Ronnie when he says he grew up listening to CBC. At least he has a small excuse for being an utter moron. I am sure Ronnie has lived off the public teat his whole life so he eagerly awaits government to change his diapers from birth to death. Funny that Ronnie tells someone else to be euthanized when not one person would miss him if he was gone….except the mailman delivering his welfare check.

You couldn’t be any further from the truth you contarded fool.

Just a reminder to those of you who think giving more money to the CBC is a good thing. Truedeau already gave them 150 million when he first got into office. So I guess we’re paying them twice a year now for news with a happy twist. 8 million for counter terrorism after Trudeau’s Syrian feel good project. Yea it’s not like there’s a huge gap in logic there. What a joke.

The only Canadians watching CBC are those out East. Why else would anyone vote a corrupt mafia party as in the Liberals? The party gets bigger with big unions receiving kick backs from the Liberals for support in the last election. The fact that unions funded a rebuild of a criminal organizations club house as in the Hells Angels says it all. The fact that the Liberal party is repealing legislation that would catch these unions from funding organized crime clearly demonstrates the Liberal party of Canada is a full blown criminal organization. The fact CBC stumps for the Liberal party of Canada is also evidence the criminal organization has corrupted our state network. Where is the RCMP? When a criminal organization becomes incorporated with the government of the day, who’s watching the public purse? or trough? Where is the RCMP organized crime unit? Guess there is no whistle blower protection when the ruling party are the criminals behind the scene. Where was CBC when it was discovered the unions in Quebec were funding organized crime? Following our selfie queen the self absorbed Trudeau? Complicity to crime is also a crime. Where is the RCMP? Quebec politics at its best. A PM from Quebec= wide scale corruption. History continues to repeat. Guessing the people out East don’t have much between the ears or their too hooked on the drugs and government teat.

Canadian unity? We lost that when the Canadian National Identity policy was surreptitiously replaced by the Multiculturalism policy, thanks in large part to daddy Trudunce.

I think liberal tards like Ron, were nothing more than a gleam in your dad’s eyes, to truly understand and grasp the true nature of what was meant to be a Canadian not too long ago. As a society we have given up too much in the way of our culture and values to accommodate the self-entitled around the world. And soon we will become strangers in our own land and barred from entering neighbourhoods where our kids once played.

So in closing you should smell your own fingers first.

Finally an increase in funding for CBC which more Canadians depend on for news (and, yes, arts) than any other source. Hope some of the whiners on here will be happy that international and local news can be covered in greater depth. Like it or not, the CBC is a major contributor to Canadian unity.

Contarded right wing “extremists” can’t understand this. They would prefer government money to support Dizzy Levat and his stink.

Let’s face the facts and call a spade a spade. The CBC is nothing more than state run liberal TV. Instead of continuing his path to reduce funding, Harper should have abolished or privatized the CBC.

One only has to view the CBC during an election to see their true bias. And Power and Politics host Rosie Barfton shows this bias year round. The liberals embed themselves well in propaganda sites such as friends.ca to mask their true agenda. On the other hand, sites such as cbcexposed.ca are more balanced in what they report.

We really need a petition to privatize the CBC and be ready to present that when the conservatives win the next election.
