Derek Fildebrandt on United Conservative Party leadership rumors

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I interviewed Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt. We discussed the merger vote to unite the Wildrose and the Progressive Conservatives, and rumors about him running for leadership of the new party.

I like Jason Kenney and Brian Jean, but I've seen them both cave to pressure from the Media Party and I think Derek entering the race would be good the new party.

Overall this is great news for Albertans, and bad news for Notley, but I think conservatives need to be cautious and not celebrate too soon.

Bill and Billy – this evil nut job we have in Alberta is sharpening her knives to stab as many of us in Alberta as possible. Trudoop is doing the very same thing. What the hell is he doing in redmonton todsy? THIS PARASITE IS NOT WELCOMED HERE. Between this 2 destroying governments, we as taxpayers are paYing an awful price for ndpee and liberals to have voted so poorly, meanwhile, the rest of us are beyond ticked and struggling to make ends meet. To make matters, these 2 regressive garbage governments will be doubling down on us in 2018, this is all scaring the hell out of us sane taxpayers.

Billy, I think scenario #2 is more likely, we are seeing more and more Dip “consultants” and agenda 21 sustainability project groups being funded. I’f she opens tha Albera Land act to change things allowing more govt, intervention in private land use, that will be the signal she’s going for a 5yr scorched earth agenda – A new Conservative government will have to repeal and cancel all this crap and tell the green “contractors” to go pxxs up a rope – run the remaining commie rats out of the province under threat of malfeasance, corruption and conspiracy charges.

This lot of Dip MLAs will not even be welcome back in their respective ridings, they’d best relocate to Toronto..

Timing is everything. Derek’s response was perfect. I think he will go for it.

Derek will be a great leader-in the future. At this point in time he is a bit young and needs to put a few more years under his belt to polish the image.

Notley will do one of 2 things:
1. Call an early election so that the split on the right will allow at least “some” NDP seats to remain in the legislature. Preventing conservatives from having the time to unify (which would mean total NDP annihilation). She’ll of course call the election at the very last moment to assure the conservative parties waste as much money as possible on the leadership race and unification costs.
2. Stay in power the full 5 years, and knowing her party will be annihilated, ramp up the social and economic destruction of Alberta, including:
Secure long-term lucrative union contracts that the next gov’t will have to live with.
Secure multi-billion dollar loans for “green” schemes like those in Ontario.
Speed up the contracting of companies able to dismantle the oil/gas industry infrastructure in order to make its revitalization overtly expensive.
Push for more Marxist and alt-left curriculum in schools and try to create a way of keeping it there after the election.
Alberta…you’re screwed either way.

Trump’s plight with treason and traitors in his party is an example of the disincentive for an honest man taking populism into a closed elitist political party system.

I hope he does run and win, But I also hope he has a plan in place to deal with the daggers in the back that inevitably happen when controlling interests are foiled by popular will.
