How the Media Party is manipulating the election campaign — while being manipulated by Justin Trudeau

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Yesterday I told you about David Cochrane, a government journalist working at Trudeau’s CBC state broadcaster.

Cochrane had spent days on the Liberal campaign bus, but he literally asked no questions for two days — because no reporters on that campaign bus were allowed to ask questions for two days.

What’s the point of being on a campaign bus if you're not allowed to ask questions?

Cochrane humiliated himself on Twitter by defending Trudeau’s silence, and making excuses: Trudeau was really busy; I mean, they were moving really fast, so that explained it. He was so mocked for that comment he deleted that tweet.

Basically, he sounded more or less indistinguishable from a leader's press secretary.

Then came a video clip of him just allowing himself to be treated like a good little puppy being rewarded by his master: Trudeau gives him some free food, and says the Liberals always take care of the CBC.

That video went viral on Twitter — and then it disappeared, too.

But it wasn’t CBC that nuked it, that we know of. Global News did, because they’re the ones who recorded it in the first place — their little logo is on the bottom of the video.

Now, why would Global take down their own video that embarrassed Trudeau — and the CBC — and the cosy relationship between the Liberals and the media...?

Eventually, Global uploaded a version of the clip again — but one shot from a different angle, that made it a bit less obsequious. The full clip, which I'll show you tonight, tells a very different story...

David Cochrane had the best day of his life yesterday, and he didn’t even know that he was being manipulated, laughed at, mocked by Trudeau. It’s that pickup artist move he has:

Trudeau close-hugs, touches, mauls, pats, gropes any women he wants to psychologically dominate. We've shown you this time after time. The latest one is his creepy handsy encounter with 19-year-old tennis champion Bianca Andreescu.

Trudeau does close hugs with men, too. But he didn’t do it right then with Cochrane — his hands were full, and I think there was a barrier between them.

So he used his actions and his words.

Trudeau is psychologically manipulating him, lording it over him, rubbing it in, and Cochrane doesn’t even realize it.

I wonder what the ordinary Canadian thinks? Of Trudeau; but also of Cochrane; and also of Global News trying so, so, hard to hide the whole thing from Canadian voters...

NEXT: Sue-Ann Levy, veteran Sun reporter, joins me to talk more about the election.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Vicious Jackals eh Peter? Guess what? Bite me and in a specific spot. I’ve more than had my fill of the lying libtards in the last few weeks and guess what Chuckles I no longer give a rat’s backend about being polite. My days are numbered thanks to the Liberal gutted medical farce system.

So many of you are coming down quite hard on Ginger Attiker. Seems to me you are not making a good impression of being the good Conservatives you claim to be.

My suggestion is you lighten up a bit on the attack of a new person to the website. Stop proving yourselves to be vicious jackals.

“My only wish is that we can get along, regardless of our differences.”

And hold hands while singing kumbaya. Golly gosh gee Batman looks like the herbaceous perennial strikes again.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a flowering plant whose rhizome, ginger root or ginger, is widely used as a spice and a folk medicine. It is a herbaceous perennial which grows annual pseudostems (false stems made of the rolled bases of leaves). Pretty apt moniker for the newest leftard troll.

I don’t understand how so many women fall into the grasp of creepy Justin. They only have to pull out of his arms and head. Let me tell you that this groper never met a strong woman in his life. He would spin around like he’s never seen before if it were me. What a disgrace he is to this country.

How boring life would be if Ezra was “a good boy” and never asked questions. Unfortunately it will take more than questions to topple those who perceive themselves as royalty.

Barb Morrison 12 min. ago, Repeaters in Trudeau’s media entourage are not reporting, they are repeating Liberal propaganda, not an honest and ethical repeater in the group. Bought by Trudeau and his scavengers using taxpayer dollars. No ethics or morals, they only see $$$.
“They only see money” Yes Barb, that was the intention of Trudeau’s Media Bribe.
What I don’t understand is why Scheer and the CPC Executive didn’t fight this harder. The Conservatives with their huge money chest could have created a Media campaign which would bring the public’s attention to this immoral policy. The NDP and the Bloc should have jumped in to help the inexperienced Scheer. It must be illegal for a Government to bribe the Media.

They hate you. They really hate you.
Joey, Thanks for that Macleans article on Kenney defending Canadian Oil. That author didn’t follow Kenney’s logic on environmentalist groups that only go after Canadian Oil.
Even the Macleans readers would agree with Kenney and Ezra’s book.

Monsef is in Canada only because her immigration papers failed to provide factual truths about her birthplace. She should have been deported years ago (along with the entire family) just like thousands of others who have used deceit to enter Canada. Why is she still here? Why is she still in political office? She’s an affront to Canada’s rule of law, immigration and legal systems….working the same amoral page as her boss.

Repeaters in Trudeau’s media entourage are not reporting, they are repeating Liberal propaganda, not an honest and ethical repeater in the group. Bought by Trudeau and his scavengers using taxpayer dollars. No ethics or morals, they only see $$$.

Andrew Scheer is to Bernie Lomax what Maxime Bernier is to Robert Goulet.
Still have a Tory’s sign out front of my house.

Holy Moly Ezra…was that nasty Toronto Sun-Toronto Star gaffe at 21:40 a Freudian slip, or what?!
Do you think the Red Star will use that clip of you ‘praising’ them, in a future advertising campaign?

Sorry, was that free putine or free putain you never take from Justa Treadlow?

Be careful Rebels, the trolls may be setting us up with a new female star. John Gault may be right when he said, "you are a new brand of Sean Penson and company. "

Probably the ordinary Canadian does not mind a hug from time to time. The Rebel should probably relax a bit.

Liz Rosie expresses the Rebel position well: “I wish the tooth fairy was real and the media in this country weren’t all bought and paid for liberal propagandists.”

The tooth fairy is not real, but we do have our hopes.

When are the remaining debates and how can I see them? If the dates have been published, I didn’t notice them.

Jan G 1 hr ago, If Maxime Bernier was not to be leader of the CPC, then Pierre Poliviere would have been a better candidate.
Jan, you called Poilievre’s popularity correctly as this poll shows he has a massive lead in the Carleton Riding. He was OK in the leadership race, (a little too quiet) but since then he is developing into a great bi-lingual Politician.

Keith good cpac vid. Max, being very clear about what he stands for. He promises to have those hard discussions at the debate.
Trudeau is going to scream and talk over, slander and insult the entire time. I hope Max inflates his pipes, and when Justin tries to talk over him, he continues talking in an even louder voice until the moderator cries …“one at a time please!” and Max in theory, gets to use the rest of his time unimpeded. Max is going to have to assert himself to be heard over Justin’s loud babbling. Harper allowed himself to be drowned out. I pray Max doesn’t allow it.
I don’t know how Scheer will make out. It should be interesting.

Ginger you are in the right place then, and you’re not alone. The pressure to comply with the popular narrative is stifling for anyone who can think for themselves. Nobody is used to being hated this way. Its a shame we have gone the way of American attack politics, but the Liberals have dragged us into it with their false accusations.
Not a Trudeau supporter? Then you must be a…..fill in one of their favourite hateful words. They are bullies.
commented 2019-09-17 22:10:09 -0400
What would be the point of asking Justin a question? People see interactions differently. If you’re protected by a bubble you aren’t accountable.

I only wish we all could get along only because I live in VancoverQuadra riding, and am made to be ashamed of not supporting Joyce Murray and the Trudeau Liberals. I’ve been living here since the 1965 election, but my friends and neighbors don’t like me because I’m not Liberal. One neighbor said I wasn’t even patriotic by not being Liberal. I am so ashamed for my views that I might not bother voting anymore. The pension I get isn’t much.

First of all, he’s a married man and should not be touching other women. He shows zero respect for women.
If Maxime Bernier was not to be leader of the CPC, then Pierre Poliviere would have been a better candidate. Scheer is a nice guy, but I don’t think he’s experienced enough. He’s a lifelong public servant. He’s known no other life out there in the real world.
This PM is trying to make Paul Wells sorry for turning on him. He has a new boyfriend now and he told the world with a Little Potato gift, with gravy.

Ginger Attiker said, “My only wish is that we can get along, regardless of our differences.”

And I wish the tooth fairy was real and the media in this country weren’t all bought and paid for liberal propagandists. We don’t call them the media party for nothing Ginger. You thought it was fair, but Scheer and Bernier could have had better coverage …. it wasn’t really fair now was it?

While typically the law seeks to overlook tiny gifts, in light of the Aga Khan story, what just happened in that video might well be illegal, hence why they sought to bury it. Trudeau gave a gift to a reporter, while stating, he “always takes care of the CBC”, (in possible exchange for positive reporting).

“We” think it’s “stupid” to connect Scheer to White Supremacists, but remember to whom Trudeau is talking. He knows his audience. We keep giving his voters too much credit.
commented 2019-09-17 21:22:53 -0400
This talk back and forth between Ezra ans Sue Ann about a Scheer wish list is very telling. I wish Trudeau Sr. had never been born. I wish Trudeau Jr. hadn’t enticed low info voters with the promise of free pot and managed to lie his way into politics,, I wish Scheer was a real conservative…..
but what good does that do Canada?
If wishing were votes, Max Bernier would win this election.

No ‘splitism’ here, I left the CPC well before Scheer told Max to shut up or get out. Scheer had my vote for about a week after the leadership debacle.
I can’t wait to see Bernier in the debates. I bet Scheer and Trudeau are at home practicing their best character assassination talking points, which will only serve to insult a heck of a lot of Canadians who think exactly what Bernier is saying.

It may be delusional to think Bernier would win, but its no more delusional than thinking Scheer is magically going to grow a pair before Oct. 21.

The whores of the press, prostituting themselves for Taxpayers gold, handed to them by the Great Pretender Trudeau, whom probably will not even get his seventy virgins when Allah calls him.

Remember people, don’t feed the trolls.

I have given up on Scheer Bruce. He thinks we need to get rid of Co2 in the atmosphere. Anyone that clueless isn’t fit to lead.

The Conservatives are throwing grinades and the Liberals are pulling the pins and throwing them right back. Andrew Scheer needs to know that nice guys finish last. Were I him, I’d be polite but firm. I’d tell it like it is about Trudeau and his failed policies.

Ginger Attiker:
I can only assume one of two things….you are extremely naive or… are a new brand of Sean Penson and company.
