Anti-Trump, anti-Alberta Trudeau misses chance to benefit from Venezuelan oil sanctions

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Over the weekend, Venezuela’s Maduro regime conducted a sham referendum that international observers condemned as nothing more than an attempt to solidify power

The U.S. led the way, ]with Treasury Secretary Mnuchin announcing that Maduro would be personally sanctioned with a freeze on his U.S. assets and a prohibition on Americans doing business with the dictator.

Venezuela and Canada both produce heavy crude oil that the U.S. market desperately needs, so it’s shocking that the Canadian government and Finance Minister Bill Morneau aren’t joining our allies in sanctioning the Maduro regime.

Why not pressure the Trump administration to take steps to sanction the oil industry since Canada could easily replace some, if not all, of the 291 million barrels of oil the U.S. imports from Venezuela each year?

That’s the very point of the Keystone XL pipeline— to displace conflict blood oil from the dictatorship of Venezuela with ethical Canadian oil from Alberta.

This Liberal government has no interest in taking advantage of the pro-business, pro-oil and gas, pro-industry policies of the Trump administration and joining the U.S. to become energy dominant thereby making North America, and not OPEC, the foremost provider of crude oil and natural gas.

But with a Prime Minister more concerned with Pride Parades, selfies, and pot legalization, I guess I’m just asking far too much.

Somehow the brains of left wingers must have short circuited at birth, because why else do they think that way…

In answer to that very important question, might I suggest;
THE LIBERAL MIND: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”, by forensic psychiatrist, Lyle Rossiter, Jr. MD.

So many great comments here. How could such an oil rich country endure being dragged down to the level of that dictatorship in Venezuela. For Albertans, the fight is now, before our little wannabe dictator utterly destroys us and the rest of Canada. Jt is seriously mentally ill, I think.

Turdo will never let Canadians use Canadian oil. We import 800,000 barrels a day from OPEC.
Sending billions out of our economy to dictatorships.
All the while we are sitting on three hundred years worth of oil in Canada. Everyone who wants to work could be working enough wealth to support health care and look after the less fortunate.
This is not including all the clean coal, we have a seem that spans three provinces,wood and minerals.
Canada is the richest country in the world. It is the lying libtards and NDPigs elitists who want to keep the regular Canadians down and poor. They also want to import enough scum at Canadian tax payer expense to keep them in power.

Somehow the brains of left wingers must have short circuited at birth, because why else do they think that way. You can’t reason with them whatsoever, they’re right, you’re wrong & it’s all because we watch the Fox channel as someone I know was told not long ago when she dared say that CNN was fake news, even when she backed it up with facts
Trudeau doesn’t listen to reason, instead he’s happy to take his cues from the likes of George Soros, Al Gore, David Suzuki & any other left wing socialist he talks to.. He had a chance to discuss & promote the TransMountain pipeline with the BC NDP Premier & BC Mayor in the last few days, but chose not to, because he has no guts.

If JT honors the memory of Fidel Castro, one doesn’t need to go out that far on a limb to presume that he has a special place of admiration for Hugo Chavez.

The likes of Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders shared an admiration for Chavez. And there’s Oliver Stone, who has expressed admiration for JT (when he was elected), he also had an unwavering admiration for Chavez.

When predicting JT’s true intentions, it’s always good to believe that the worst intentions that JT may have are not that far out there.

War with liberals is coming. Be ready.

Not to worry, Little Trudie Tater Tot is working on something much more important, Sharia Courts. He wants to make sure that people like Kevin Johnston gets a fair trial before they have their heads cut off. Our energy sector is extremely important but that and other issues are but diversions taking our attention away from the real threat that faces Canada. Islam is gaining ground hand over fist and soon that fist will be coming down on our freedom and rights. Enslavement is not far away, the more we deny it the closer it gets. We need to get mad as a nation, they talk of Civil War erupting in Venezuela, what will it take for that to happen in Canada? Will we wait until it’s too late? Millions of Canadians must assemble and have their collective voices heard.

Drew said, “Meanwhile they call Harper a dictator.”

I think that psychological condition is know as projection. Lefties are all afflicted with it.

I imagine Simple Justin was smiling and envious when Maduro had opposition leaders arrested yesterday. Probably got sexually excited over that as well. And of course the left wing fools see that as some sort of positive event. Meanwhile they call Harper a dictator.

Turncoat Truedough will have to do the opposite of the US because this is how his dyslexic brain is cross-wired – He’s a reflexive contrarian but he calls it Suni wayz

Ron Joseph, I am not sure what choice Canada has but to sell the oil to the US for below world prices when the eco-bastards keep shutting down the oil and gas industry and oil & gas pipelines.

Once in a life time opportunities zipping past Canada left and right. This has got to be starting to dawn on Trudeau lovers.

Again I say, we have elected (not me) one great big huge steaming pile of feces as our (not mine) Prime Minister. Every single thing he’s ever done since being elected has done harm to Canada and lined the pockets of him and his ass kissers.

TruDope fits very well with his base: no idea of what even the definition of economy is, forget about how to make it work. We are getting poorer by the day with this nut job of PM.
commented 2017-08-01 19:36:01 -0400
I sure agree with the first two posts, however I have a problem with selling more oil to the US below world prices, only because they are our only customer.
Would we be dumb enough to sell the US " Gold " at below world prices?

Baby Doc, true to his name, is looking at how Chavez and Murdero have fleeced the populace to make their families billionaires. He is totally aware about the Chavez/Murdero methodology to turn a wealthy democracy into a grass eating socialist state, and gain personally.

Admiring dictators and trying to completely destroy Canada in every way. That’s our disgusting Prime Minister.
