Liberals should drop Monsef “birther” talking points and uphold law

Candice MalcolmRebel Contributor

As you’ve probably heard, Maryam Monsef was born in Iran – not Afghanistan. After being praised as the ultimate refugee success story, Canada’s first Cabinet Minister from Afghanistan, we learned last week that the story she had presented was not accurate. 

Monsef claims she never knew the true story about where she was born and how she spent the first decade of her life. It was only after a media investigation and questions from a journalist that she asked her mother and was told the truth.

But the journalist, Bob Fife of the Globe and Mail, was acting upon a tip. Somebody else knew the truth, and reached out to members of the national media to encourage a probe.

Once the truth was revealed, other political figures in Monsef’s hometown of Peterborough, Ontario came forward to reveal that they, too, had heard similar stories. If rumours were spinning around Peterborough about her life story, and if anonymous tipsters were encouraging journalists to investigate, how is it that she was the last to know?

Her version of events could be accurate but common sense would tell us that Monsef had likely heard these rumours in the past. So why didn’t she ask her mother sooner?

Immigration lawyers have suggested that Monsef may have committed a crime – using false information on her refugee and citizenship application – and the penalty could be as serious as citizenship revocation and deportation.

Canada has stripped citizenship away before since lying to citizenship officials makes a person inadmissible to Canada, a long-standing policy that predates the Harper government.

In fact, during the last election campaign, Justin Trudeau himself praised this practice.

In the meantime, Trudeau’s spin doctors are taking a different approach to managing this crisis by suggesting that raising questions about Monsef’s birth is akin to racism, calling this a “birther movement”.

There’s nothing racist about demanding honesty and transparency from our politicians. Nothing racist about upholding our laws, and applying them equally.

In the case of Monsef, it isn’t even a conspiracy and the only question that remains is whether Trudeau’s cabinet minister and her family are above the law.

This issue with Maryam Monsef is cut and dried. The next move should be an obvious one. Watch Justin squirm out of it.

“Western separation should be the only talking point”

Separation is the only way to rid ourselves of the parasites and the nonsense that Ottawa keeps feeding
Alberta because after all we only have “colony membership status” at “club Canada.”

Lawrence O’Bryne with regards to liberal MP Mark strahl not answering any of your emails. I have written a multitude of emails to the conservatives, provincial and federal and have always, and I mean always received a reply by email or snail mail. Jason Kenny replied to my concerns about the temp workers program in an email and a letter in hard copy. That is one of the differences between the liberals and the conservatives. Liberals don’t give a rats ass what we think once they get in. Especially Justin’s liberals. They do what ever they want regardless of laws or concerns and the voter be damned.

Trudeau is really in a pickle.
What to do.
Does he respect Canadian law or not. Period.
It has nothing to do with race, culture or religion.
There is definitely false informatiin on this file. It was not accidental which can be confirmed.
Looks to me Trudon’t has only one decision. Revoke citizenship. Watch him squirm.
Maybe he’ll announce that Immigration Officials and bureaucrats have until 2018 to make a decision.

Yes they are above the law, nobody else would be getting away with this, nobody! Throw her out of politics and throw her and her mother out of the country. She has always known exactly where she was born and she continued the lie and lies to us now. She is not fit to serve Canadians and should be dealt with the way anyone else would. If she had any sense of what’s right she would resign and take that job in Afghanistan she turned down at the last minute to do Justin’s bidding. What respect can we have for a government which has no respect for the laws of the country.

Justin claims he can screen ten of thousands of Syrian migrants yet he cannot even properly screen the other 29 members of his own cabinet.

All Muslims are here under false pretense, their whole life is false pretense, the Political Platform / Cult, that they follow is a false pretense.

There is a vast amount of historical evidence that Jesus Christ actually existed.

There is a vast amount of historical evidence that Muhammad did not exist.

As for the false Cabinet Minister, lock her up and throw away the key.

Whether she lied or her mother lied is irrelevant. Its that it is a lie that is what is relevant. Anyone else caught doing so would lose their citizenship and be sent packing.

But Baby Doc Duvalier, ah, er, ah, Baby Doc Trudeau wanted women, young, and Muslim in his cabinet, so he got her. Now that she has become a scandal, he should demand her resignation from cabinet and parliament. Actually, if she had any morality she would do so on her own, and then pack up to go to Afghanistan as she originally planned until Prince Justin the Dumb called.

Zundel was stripped of his citizenship and sent back to Germany to face charges. Same for others.

Af for racist, so it is racist to call a liar a liar? Is there a special force field around liars and therefore cheats not to be treated equally under the law? Is liar a race? Keep using the word racist to discredit people or distract from the real issues is just so transparent a tactic that it is losing its power. I was recently called a racist because I wanted stronger immigration laws; I said thank you. I never knew “immigrant” was a race.

Our fearless spender, Baby Doc, is keeping quiet, probably hoping for the storm to pass.

If she was a Conservative, the media howling would be thunderous. Being Liberal, not so loud. Whispers, Crickets. Silence.

Western separation should be the only talking point, and once this is obtained, we can crack a celebratory beer and watch these eastern loons self destruct.

You will never ever get the truth from these dick-taters.

Smells like taqiyya to me. Little potato will protect the lying Saracen.

As with all important issues…“little potato” will make a speech touting Canadian values and diversity is our strength, including an overabundance of photos and the mandatory selfies. Then in a courageous act…a truly character defining opportunity, do nothing.

If you can’t come up with an answer, just say: You’re racist!
