Kevin O’Leary is no Donald Trump

Faith GoldyArchive

Ezra is away tonight, so I’ll be sitting in, talking about “Mr. Wonderful,” Kevin O’Leary.

He now has a campaign manager, a statistician and strategist. Any day now, “Shark Tank” star, investor, writer, and businessman Kevin O’Leary will officially join the race for the reigns of Canada’s federal Conservative Party.

The Media Party will label him Canada’s Donald Trump — replacing Kellie Leitch who, for now, holds that title.

But I’m here to tell you:

Don’t be fooled. Kevin O’Leary is no Donald Trump.

More importantly, Kevin O’Leary is no conservative.

Look, I get the urge to draw the comparison, but just because O’Leary is a successful business man, doesn’t mean he’s automatically gets conservative street credentials. Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos are some of the world's most successful suits, but they’re also some of the most devout Democrats.

So when asked about screening immigrants for Canadian values, O’Leary said that would be “un-Canadian”.

Now the chasm of viewpoints between O’Leary and Trump doesn’t end at immigration and multiculturalism. Profound differences exist in their social, economic, and foreign policy standpoints, too.

I'll explain — and I'll also talk about why his inclusion in the race will be a net good for the other candidates...

TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Broadcaster Dave Rutherford, and InfoWar's Paul Joseph Watson.

And on gun control he is totally liberal, good guns, bad guns, don’t need to have etc.

Love O’Leary as personality and a no-nonsense business leader. But he’s totally clueless about the politics, naïve about social issues and morally bankrupt. Wait until the media starts picking his private life apart. That’s going to be a true disaster zone and the end of hopes for a new leader that this country so badly needs.

Personally, I feel that our own Ezra Levant is the best choice for the Leader of the Conservative Party here in Canada! We should try to convince him to run to “save Canada” from these “Globalist Socialist Twits” running Canada right now.
He is as “hated” by the MSM here in Canada, as Donald Trump was in the USA, so I know that he is the right man for the job. Sure O’Leary & Trump have more business experience, but Ezra Levant has more than most readers here realize.
Myself, I have attended UWO Business School courses(like BUS 257) & I ran my own custom signage manufacturing company from 79’ to 90’ here in London ON. Although a lot of my business associates have retired by now, they & most of the ones still in business all support Donald Trump & realize that Canada is dependent on the USA “big time” (as a mayor I grew up with once told me a couple yrs. ago).

Think About It!

O’Leary is out for himself. I don’t trust him. I like Brad Trost myself. He hails from Saskatchewan and I read somewhere that he is friend of Brad Wall’s.
commented 2016-12-15 13:38:35 -0500
So O’Leary is part of the open borders crowd?

commented 2016-12-15 10:01:55 -0500
O’Leary would not be my first choice, I feel he is too progressive. His close ties to the CBC also make me worry. I will of course support him if he manages to get elected leader, but I won’t be supporting him for that bid. Not at this time. So far Kelly Leitch is the front runner in my mind, and what she says and stands for aligns closely to my way of thinking. Maxime Bernier is another Quebec politician, and that speaks for itself.
commented 2016-12-15 03:28:10 -0500
It sounds like nobody knows which way to vote… everybody’s got their reasons for supporting this guy or that girl but here’s the clincher, vote for anybody who will introduce support and promote
“recall legislation.”.!!
commented 2016-12-14 21:20:42 -0500
Nothing would make for better entertainment than to see Kevin drag Butts and Justin over the coals, and he could do it too. However… Mr. Wonderful is not to be trusted. It’s tempting gawd knows. It’s kind of like resisting temptation because you know in the end it’s going to be really bad for you. Sounds good but….
commented 2016-12-14 15:47:56 -0500
Correction: Trost fan. Though I like trout too.
commented 2016-12-14 15:46:16 -0500
Im a Trout fan, but that being said, everything being said about Oleary was said about Trump . By conservatives. Politicians will never be our Messiah. If it means no more shiny pony I’ll take Oleary.
commented 2016-12-14 13:40:21 -0500
Captain Obvious time. Canada doesn’t have a “conservative party”. We have center left and extreme left. This sham of a leadership race is nothing more than a pr stunt, a show to pick the most popular political beauty queen/whore that will provide the best chance for the rest of the closet liberals, pretending to be conservatives, to get back control of the tax dollar money trough.
commented 2016-12-14 12:27:24 -0500
Do not trust O’Leary. He does not have Canada’s best interests in mind. His only concern is how to make more money for himself and everyone else be damned.
Vote for and support Brad Trost.
commented 2016-12-14 12:09:17 -0500
O’Leary would be a better fit for the Liberal party. Leitch is my favorite right now but I’m open minded if someone better comes along. Putting in a Liberal lite like Chong or O’Leary will pretty much guarantee a 2nd Liberal term. The Liberal base isn’t likely to embrace them just because they pander to them. All they’ll do is alienate their Conservative base. The other thing to consider is what’s the point of electing the Conservatives if their policies are the same as the Liberals.

- Rutherford is right about the number one issue with the economy being the carbon tax. I won’t back a candidate in this race who backs the carbon tax. O’Leary can beat Trudeau – then what? Trudeau 2.0?

- It looks like the Democrats bought their own BS & got caught flat footed when they lost the election. They then launched a multi pronged attack that failed on every front to date. Right now they’re only undermining their remaining credibility. There have been many Democrats who have gotten sick of this nonsense. They aren’t all SJWs.

I did hear Kevin O’leary speak on CTV last night and he called Gerald Butts to come out into the daylight since he is the one running Trudeau’s government and because he was the one who destroyed Ontario’s economy and is now going to run our country into the ground.

On the C.I.A. claims of Russian hacking I saw yet another interesting revelation.
commented 2016-12-14 11:41:14 -0500
I won’t allow the likes of Kevin O’Leary to CORRUPT my CPC – I WON’T Compromise and will never settle for less than a TRUE BLUE CONSERVATIVE – we have what it takes to LEAD this Country – O’Leary ISN’T one of us – go away Kevin. I would never get advice from him on Entrepreneurship and I can’t stand Dragons Den or Shark Tank. I don’t trust him! 😖

MAXIME BERNIER 4 LEADER AND PM 🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️

Kellie Leitch would be good in a Bernier Government ❤️

…..or should I say, “I’m out!”
commented 2016-12-14 09:51:11 -0500
I believe he could blow Justin right out of the water, I do, but then what? He says he loves Canada, but I just don’t buy that he would put Canada first. He is too pro multi-culturalism, too pro immigration. He has no moral guidance to offer what so ever, he has said as much. I know he wasn’t being literal about the goat but what would he do to reign in all this cultural Marxism which is being rammed down our throats?
He’d be able to handle Trump, but what would he give away at the expense of a good deal. I am more afraid of the last point with other foreign countries not America. Way too many questions he’s going to have to answer, and the few he has answered so far don’t make me feel too warm and fuzzy.
Kevin you’re going to have to work it to get my vote. Blowing one narcissist out of the water to replace him with another narcissist of many unknown motives could prove equally disastrous. O’leary is really going to have to show his colours. From the starting gate, I say no way.
commented 2016-12-14 09:41:53 -0500
I agree with Rutherford. None of the current candidates have broken free to show true leadership. I fall right of the centre and religion beliefs shouldn’t be a part of any political party. Religion has become far too inclusive in social issues. It’s about human beings and economic issues are all inclusive. Stick to it. All due respect Faith…..O’Leary has my vote.
commented 2016-12-14 07:08:51 -0500
i found your link on facebook and when i clicked on it, it would come page not found…Russia hacking my FB?
commented 2016-12-14 02:31:35 -0500
It scares the hell out of me that O’Leary has so much support, this guy is a jerk.
Don’t trust this guy. O’Leary is all about money and how much he can put into his own pocket.
He would be the very last one I would consider voting for and after thinking about it, I would say NO.
Brad Trost needs to be talked about more as not too many people know about him.
But Kevin O’Leary? No way.
commented 2016-12-14 02:12:58 -0500
Billy Howard said, "…social conservativism should take a back seat to economic conservatism. We MUST remove Trudeau from office or we’re doomed economically…

Every problem is a spiritual problem. We will be financially bankrupt because we are spiritually bankrupt. One follows the other as night follows day. Trudeau is a dolt because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and he has turned his back on his spiritual heritage as most of Quebec has.

I’m not saying that the leader must be a church going, Bible totin’ evangelical but the closer they hew to the wisdom of the creator the better off we will all be. 2 Chronicles 7:14

O’Leary is Liberal so do not expect him to revive much of anything economically, Crony capitalism is always the way of the left. Trey sounds much better:
commented 2016-12-14 02:11:18 -0500
It matters not to me …which of the twiddle dum and twiddle dee candidates you prefer….for in all honesty NONE of them really impress me……I see no Trey Gaudy warrior of justice and righteousness among the pack….

I no longer listen to pundit nor pollster…for they know not…nor do they cast very many ballots.

Donald Trump won because he listened to what the crowds were chanting….and the crowds were not governed by the arrogant oligarchy who thought they had …with their incredible wealth….bought something that would make them king makers….

In the words of that weasle Michael Moore….the election of Trump was the biggest political “fuck you” in history.

The folks who get dirt under their finger nails are not willing to support a liesure class of university graduates who offer nothing actually usefull.

So if this fellow has figured out how to replicate Donald Trump’s sucess..then nothing that the pundits and pollsters say could possibly stop him.

The good guys: Brad Trost and Pierre Lemieux.

O’leary pro immigration, pro Bill C-16 and pro abortion. Not for me, thank you!
Problem is the state is in our schools and teaching our kids the stupid new Sex Ed Curriculum.

O’Leary. Just another lily-livered Liberal. A lot more in common with Paul Martin than Trump.
I believe you are right… We need a politician that gets into office because he loves his country more than his bank account or his career.!! I don’t think Kevin O’Leary is capable of loving something more than money and power.!!
Trump goes into his election not as a perfect human being but one with common sense and one that can’t be bought. Kevin O’Leary needs to be screened" by the media both mainstream and alternative as well as Canadian’s themselves. However I don’t even know what a Canadian is anymore..!!
After all this is a popularity contest and nothing more.. We’ve only got one more chance to get this right and with my “all in vote” I would go with Brad Trost for so many different reasons..
I would trust Kelly Leach to set a broken bone in my leg but she has the emotional mindset of a doctor and someone who is trained to save lives in the operating theater where the best of equipment is at her disposal. Her as well as team of medical experts are undertaking a task which is been planned out and done many times over in the past thus receiving more positive feedback under the best of conditions.
Canada (Country and economy) at this stage is like the ER on a payday Saturday night.
Canada is leaking and bleeding out… It has many fractured ribs a broken nose broken and collarbone and possibly a concussion, as well the patient is barely conscious.!
There there is so much wrong with Canada that the only way the fix can be accomplished is by someone that’s not afraid to “call a spade a spade”…!! Anyone who can make the hard calls and bring the howling dogs of the media for political incorrectness has a chance of saving this country.! Anything less than that is just lip service and a back rub.
Please support Brad Trost as our next PC representative for the prime minister’s chair and if that doesn’t work please consider separation for survival.

Jeff – 75% of Canadians want immigrants to do a better job of integrating. In other words, they’re concerned about Muslims supremacists, which would be any Niqab wearing family.

Try finding another issue that 75% of Canadians agree on. Can you name one?
commented 2016-12-13 23:47:23 -0500
The nest election is critical, Canada’s economic survival is at staake as well as our democracy and culture – ALL threats to Canad have to be confronted with workable action plans to reverse the damage.

If O’Leary can do that great – I think he’s a one trick pony – he’d make a great finance minister but he isn’t happy with that – he want’s the crown or nothing.
commented 2016-12-13 23:39:48 -0500
I think everyone should send Michael Chong a piece of their mind. Here’s his email;

The Left will accept Trump just like they accepted Rob Ford – NOT!!!

Ron Joseph… Human rights and free-speech cannot exist together, somebody says something that hurt somebody’s feelings and then they have to make a law against it.
commented 2016-12-13 23:26:11 -0500
I don’t know why Kelly Leach get so much attention… She must be the darling of the media but Brad Trost is a far better candidate and he’s from the prairies..!!
