Kenney attack BACKFIRES! Notley NDP pretend to be “fiscal hawks” BUT highlight their own incompetence

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

The NDP continue to lose their collective minds over the prospect of Jason Kenney becoming leader of the PC party in Alberta and uniting the right. It’s caused them to pretend to be fiscal hawks, dissecting Jason Kenney’s expenses over the last 10 years as an MP. 

On the NDP Alberta website, they did the best they could to drudge up some sort of Kenney scandal.

Watch as I show you how they attacked him over a few expenses - all legitimate and all arguably lower than they could have been.

It’s amazing that suddenly the NDP are watchdogs of taxpayer dollars.

Instead of worrying about a one time expense for Jason Kenney’s mom, the NDP should really crack down on paying the moving expenses for all the newly hired out of province NDP rejects. It cost Alberta taxpayer $99,000 to relocate these 16 mercenaries, their Stalin memorabilia and their Karl Marx troll collections - so far.

Instead of feigning anger that Jason Kenney’s federal department spent $750,000 to monitor media perceptions, maybe the NDP can cut out their newly created army of journalist monitoring real time trolls; the Issues Managers that cost taxpayers $1 million this year.

Instead of being mad that Jason Kenney went to Bilderberg, spending $10,000, maybe the NDP could crack down on the travel expenses of their own Ministers, including when Shannon Phillips and company expensed their carbon offsets to taxpayers — their penance for the climate crime of flying to COP21.

The NDP’s poorly thought out attack actually shows that Jason Kenney is more careful with taxpayer money than they are.

Whoever thought it was a good idea to attack Jason Kenney while pretending they respect the taxpayer, should be fired for their terrible idea.

Just kidding. No one gets fired for doing a bad job for the NDP. Just ask Joe Ceci.

Can hardly wait for the regressives to claim that space aliens are unhappy about Kenney. That should really focus the fear and madness…………..!

BUGS POTTER, appreciate your response. I would likewise contend that there is a risk in allowing a compromised position on the matter of man-made global warming, a mechanism that the socialists have openly declared that they want to use to overturn capitalism and I would add freedom. By, the way, as I mentioned, just following The Rebel one would become better informed on this issue. I am thinking that if most of the voters are low-information voters, voting on emotion, then we are hooped. They may have done so in the last provincial election because of the PCs and the cross-over by Danielle Smith et. al, but they recovered somewhat in the federal election. So I am not so pessimistic about the voters, but more so about the ‘leaders’.

Ron, thank you for taking the time to post. You have taken the time to become informed about this. Good for you. I follow politics closely. I think that 99% of voters aren’t like you. Most are extremely low-information voters who vote based on emotion alone.

Somehow the anti-global warming advocates have lost all credibility in this debate. How, I don’t know. The “progressives” have managed to make your side come out sounding like lunatics, and the public is buying their portrayal.

You say: I would rather go down with a bang, not a whimper.

I’m just saying that’s the risk you run.

BUGS POTTER, I hear you saying, “I’m not an expert in climate science and don’t have the time to become sufficiently informed to debate it”. You don’t have to be a climate scientist or an expert to be informed. David Suzuki, a zoologist who studied fruit flies, claims to be an expert. We need an informed voting public, otherwise, we get people voting for the NDP which has designs to destroy Alberta’s economy on the back of this bogus notion of man-made global warming. The Rebel has also had several shows on this topic (including many by Tim Ball who has spent his career researching, teaching, and publishing on the environment and climate) with Ezra, as well questioning its scientific merit and revealing its political aspect. Without getting into the science, apart from telling you that there has not been a rise in global temperatures over the past 18+ years despite rising CO2 emissions, let’s approach it in another angle. Suppose if I told you that the socialists, like the NDP and the UN, are using the ruse of man-made global warming to push for their alternative socialist economy? Gerald Butts is the senior political adviser for Justin Trudeau. From 2008 to 2012, he was the President and CEO of the World Wildlife Fund Canada. In May 2012, when asked about the proposed route for the Northern Gateway pipeline, Butts responded, “We don’t think there should be a carbon-based energy industry by the middle of this century. The real alternative is not an alternative route. It’s an alternative economy.” You can watch a clip of Butts saying this in Ezras’s July 6th show. Now, Butts’ “alternative economy” is just code words for replacing a capitalist economy with a socialist economy, as openly espoused by socialist Naomi Klein as a goal of her Leap Manifesto, a declaration which calls for a radical overhaul of Canada’s economy, ending fossil fuel use and switching “our energy systems to 100 percent renewables”. In her book, “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate", Klein asserted that “Our economic system and our planetary system are now at war” and that the issue of global warming has given ‘progressives’ (code for socialists) “the most powerful argument against unfettered capitalism” ever.
Noteworthy, that another entity, The Communist Party of Canada, thinks the same, as combating supposed man-made climate change (née global warming) was part of its platform for the recent federal election, a component of its agenda “to fight for really fundamental change in our country – not just cosmetic change – to open the door to socialism”. So, if you want to stand with a party that stands with policies held by socialists that are considered “the most powerful argument against unfettered capitalism”, that’s your choice. But, I don’t, and maybe you can understand why some of us have taken the time to be informed and are “quite ‘heated’ (heehee) about this issue”. You also say, “I guess what I’m saying is that if the right can reach a compromise that most of us can stomach, it would be worth holding our noses on the few issues we don’t agree on to get rid of the current NDP stench”. I am not prepared to “compromise” on truth and reality and conservative values and principles. I would rather go down with a bang, not a whimper, holding to those values. Incidentally, that phrase comes from a book from 1988, “With A Bang, Not A Whimper: Pierre Trudeau Speaks Out” which is the converse of a line (“Not with a bang. but a whimper”) from a poem by T.S. Eliot.

I agree with BUGS that we must rid ourselves of the Commy NDP plague asap. I really have a problem with the climate change lies and the PHONY carbon tax bs though. RON, I guess it is up to people like us to keep the pressure on Wildrose and see if their “grassroots” offer holds true. I’m busy today, but tomorrow will pursue this, look for some answers, and start what I hope will be a movement to nudge Wildrose in the RIGHT direction on this matter. I would prefer to vote for someone that I actually can agree with, but the dippers MUST go.

On a side note, Bernie is just endorsing H. Clintoris, and he spewed a raft of bs climate “unfacts.” God help us all.

DAVID WHITE, I very much appreciate your explanation, and, like you, I believe that we need to continue to hold their feet to the fire on this and other issues. Wildrose likes to trumpet that they are a grassroots party, responsive to its grassroots. Accordingly, I find it very hard to believe that Wildrose’s grassroots do indeed hold a position of affirming man-made global warming! In a June 23rd email from Wildrose, “The Policy and Constitution Committee is pleased to present the 2016 Constitutional and Member Passed Policy Amendment Package. We are proud to be a grassroots organization (like I said) where our membership can amend our Party Constitution or Policy document. This process is your opportunity to have a say in these documents”. Any thoughts on how to bring amendments to their “policy document”?

The tricky thing for the Alberta right is that the risk of another NDP gov’t probably outweighs the unpleasant necessity of right-wingers compromising on some of their views.

I’m not an expert in climate science and don’t have the time to become sufficiently informed to debate it, but I can see that many of you are quite “heated” (heehee) about this issue. Still, you have to weigh your choices carefully: if you make this a make-or-break issue, and Alberta ends up with 4 more years of NDP gov’t because we can’t get our act together, the whole province will suffer. It is staggering to imagine the damage the NDP could do to Alberta if we had 2 terms of these idiots.

I guess what I’m saying is that if the right can reach a compromise that most of us can stomach, it would be worth holding our noses on the few issues we don’t agree on to get rid of the current NDP stench.

We need a leader who can unite the most Albertans against the NDP to lead whatever party can oust these clowns — party allegiances have to be secondary right now.

And no RON, I’m now definitely not COMFORTABLE.
commented 2016-07-12 10:30:55 -0400
To RON VOSS: After our last exchange here I did contact Wildrose and talked to I believe one of their shadow cabinet members. I know his ear was sore at the end of the conversation, as I tore a strip out of them concerning that stupid man made global warming comment of theirs a few years ago. He placated me with some soothing words and had a somewhat plausible reasoning as to why their present views appear a bit clouded, but that a definite policy has not yet been proposed. I’m with you Ron, and if they can’t set the record straight it will be hard for me to vote for them. Now I have heard Kenney has muttered something concerning a carbon tax as well. If the whole herd goes this route I may have to join Peter Netterville in Saskatchewan. Now that I’m aware Fildebrandt gave you that wishy washy answer, I have to rethink everything again. When I had my conversation with Wildrose, I did indicate that if they wouldn’t retract that ridiculous climate statement they could forget my vote. I’m just sick with this NDP mess and honestly may not live through another incarnation of said fools if that happens. " Peter, got any room in your basement?"
Ron, I’m going to contact Wildrose again and refresh myself with what they say. I hope it leaves me the option I prefer. Keep typing and keep me informed. Thx Ron.

“Fildebrand(t) should be a big part of any ongoing negotiation”. At a Generation Screwed meeting held in Calgary in November 2015, I challenged Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt, who was a speaker at this event, about Wildrose’s endorsement of man-made global warming, a position taken by Wildrose a few years ago. He mumbled something like ’that’s what the scientists are telling us’. People need to stop seeing the world only through Rose-coloured glasses.

This is socialism in action. Everyone is losing their shirts and then handing over their shirts to the select few who are preferred by The Great Leader. This is Venezuala lite

DAVID WHITE, “I did talk to Wildrose about their musings on the carbon tax, and my impression is that they are not necessarily going to endorse one any time soon.” And on that basis, you are comfortable “that they are not necessarily going to endorse one any time soon”?? I wouldn’t be comfortable until they renounce their position taken a few years ago that they subscribe to the notion of man-made global warming and man-made emissions of CO2 is the culprit! When you said you talked to Wildrose, who did you talk to? Brian Jean? The Wildrise Executive? A local riding president?

Also like Roy Jeanine stated, Fildebrand should be a big part of any ongoing negotiation. I hope that tiff is done with and we can get on to more important matters. I did talk to Wildrose about their musings on the carbon tax, and my impression is that they are not necessarily going to endorse one any time soon. And Roy you are right, I wish Jean would take a chunk out of our Uber Queen Rachael the Royal more often.

You can scream all you want that Wildrose should be and is the only choice but check out the polling numbers:

If there isn’t a massive movement from the PCs to Wildrose, the concern is that heaven forbid we might end up once more with an NDP government. I understand that Kenney is running on a platform of uniting the right; not to build the PCs up to be a competitor with the Wildrose Party. Early days so everyone needs to relax. I understand the selection of the new PC leader is nit scheduled to take place until next spring. Fun to watch, nonetheless, the panic by the leftwing media, the ‘progressives’ in the PC party and the NDP.
commented 2016-07-12 00:55:50 -0400
I agree with Ken Hanson. I actually wished Kenny would join the Wildrose from the get go. True conservatives could cross the floor and Lukasic and Janssen could have beat each others brains in vying to lead a party going nowhere. But I guess that is not to be. All we can hope is that Kenney and Jean can pull off a doozy’ and if not, I can live or die with Wildrose.

In full agreement with Calamity Marcy, the plague MUST go.

There is something seriously wrong with socialist DNA – they get so angry that they think/speak straight anymore.

Notley is just one of these socialist/toxic DNA pigs – only a couple more years to undo this pig’s damage to Alberta.
commented 2016-07-12 00:45:41 -0400
Ken, I was I full agreement with you until Brian Jean turfed Derek Filderbrand a month ago or so for about 6 days. Derek had said absolutely nothing wrong and I am very troubled over Brian Jean’s leadership ever since. It was unwarranted and an awful decision and the other thing is I have heard Brian Jean apologize more than once to nutley, and also I have not heard him denounce a carbon tax, that’s worrisome.

I don’t care what Kenney or the Ndp or the liberals or aliens from another planet have to say about anyone. Wildrose under Brian Jean is an excellent choice to put Alberta back in order and back to being the oil producing economic power house it was before.

Ron Voss & PT Phillips. RE: abortion, criminal law is within federal jurisdiction, but of course health care is a provincial matter, so funding and availability of services is what is in question I believe.

All that matters is that the Alberta NDP are driven from power after the next election. They should be crushed at the polls and then driven off like the plague of cockroaches that they are…

PT PHILLIPS, “Strange isn’t it ( not really) that the CBC have run two stories on their website over the past two days concerning Kenny’s personal opinion on abortion. Our nationally funded broadcaster knows of course that the abortion issue falls entirely within the domain of the federal government and has nothing at all to do with provincial politics”. So, should provincial Premier Rachel Notley understand that issue falls within the domain of the federal government, but that didn’t stop Notley, taking her lead from the CBC and a tweet last week by NDP MLA Marie Renaud, from commenting through The Calgary Herald on Monday that “she does not expect the abortion debate to be reopened in Alberta but warned against any politician who would try and roll back the services available”.

Kenney has a big ship to turn around assuming he even gets control of it. Meantime it is amusing watching the Progressives and there propaganda machines try to spin a narrative before a narrative is even created. Just incredible how deep this machine goes too be so quick to spin the sheep to keep them inline.
Here be hoping the Conservative Party can unite into one. I see the CP as being mostly WR in the end though, shuffling the Progressives in the Conservatives off into Liberal land where they belong.
Massive undertaking against a massive tidal current, Good Luck Alberta.
commented 2016-07-11 20:16:41 -0400
Just the fact that Kenney went to a bilderberg meeting is enough said. As far as nutley’s ndp attempt at smearing anyone…………well that is the biggest bunch of gas bag buffoonery yet. It’s like playing cards with an eight year old. Fuck politicians are stupid. Remember governments run everything and are in all aspects of our lives, that’s why we are in the fucked up state we find ourselves today!!!!!!

Sheila, attempted character assassination is an NDP specialty. Thanks for turning it back upon these hypocritical scoundrels.

Notley and the rest of the Rats must realize their days are numbered. To begin attacking Jason Kenney when he has only announced he will be running for the PC leadership in October. Kenney has not won anything yet. The PC Party and WR have the same position on uniting as they have for the past year. Nothing at all has been accomplished or achieved by Kenney or uniting the PC and WR but Notley and the Rats are in panic mode. I agree with Sheila that it is going to see all the Rats scurrying around for the next year or so.
