Joe Oliver talks about Trudeau, M-103 and the Conservative Party’s future

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Before I left for the Netherlands to conduct my exclusive interview with Geert Wilders, I sat down with former Harper cabinet minister Joe Oliver for a wide ranging conversation.

We talked about his background, and how unusual it was for a Jewish Anglo in Montreal to support the Conservative Party. He explained that Pierre Trudeau's policies, particularly on economics, that pushed him to the right.

Oliver and I noted the many startling and troubling similarities between Justin Trudeau and his father (which, unfortunately, don't include Pierre's first rate intellect or real world achievements...)

Among other things, we also talked about whether or not Millennial support for Trudeau might already be waning; Rona Ambrose's performance as Conservative Party interim leader; and the ongoing race to replace Stephen Harper.

Iqra Khalid’s M103 seems akin to inviting guests over to your house who, upon arrival, decide the arrangement of the furniture isn’t to their liking and insist on it’s being changed. It appears to be the case no matter what country Islamic adherents enter, trouble ALWAYS follows. It’s time for the Liberal voters to stand up and be counted on this. She needs to be relegated to the back benches. Justin’s father had just that disdain for most back benchers who were deemed useful only in getting the seat in the Commons and then were expected to sit down and shut up.

Millenial support waning? Aside from an abysmal lack of life experience, the millenials will flock to support Trudope when he waves another drug legalization scheme in their faces! Sad, however true of the millenials I know!

You have to go back to about -3:20:19 to catch Trumps address. He has been on already.

I remember first hearing about a ‘global agenda’ and a ‘new world order’ around 2010. Guffaw, guffaw, how ludicrous , an exaggerated conspiracy theory for certain.
Doesn’t seem so outrageous anymore does it Deborah.

JILL and JOHN WARD….We may as well published our rants together. We must have had some kind of zen connection as we were typing. This is so sick and the liberal lemmings can only seem to grasp cbc and other main stream media LIES. I pray we are not as fkd as you say, but things sure are dire.

Hair head, I mean air head Justin is playing with FIRE. Following closely in the footsteps of Barrak Obumble, a quick look tells us enough to pull the fire alarm. A couple of snippets to ponder….

Omar Alghabra…basically a radical islamic sharia proponent (liberal)
Iqra Khalid…front person for M103 islamic blasphemy bull shit (liberal sharia supporter)
Myriam Monsef….muslim illegal alien once in charge of seeking changes to Canada’s electoral system
Ahmed Hussan….our new immigration minister ( muslim liberal)

Not much sense going any further. If you look at the tentacles of the muslim brotherhood etc that Obama helped nurture and entrench in the US, and the love affair between jt and Obama, throw in Butt’s involvement and the alarm bells should be loud and clear. Trudope fires aroun the term “root cause” quite freely. He could very well be the root cause that we will loose Canada as we know it, and his vision of the country is a SHIITY one.

WAKE UP CANADA…..soon it WILL be too late

WELL I finally realize that Canada no longer exists except in name only. WE ARE NOW OFFICIALLY A “SANCTUARY COUNTRY” which is a U.N./Soros DIRECTIVE! NO wonder Trudeau has been after the throne at the U.N.! HE WANTS TO BE PART OF THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT! HE ACTUALLY BELIEVES HE IS INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO RULE THE WORLD! Well, he certainly showed us now didn’t he. He has completely dismantled our sovereignty, freedoms and nation within 15 months and we have stood back, done nothing and allowed it to happen!
We are now going to be under full sharia once this anti islamophobia law is passed because EVERYTHING IN CANADA OFFENDS ISLAM and that is what this law aims to eradicate! Trudeau invited the ENTIRE THIRD WORLD to come here and claim refugee which is another way of telling the world we are now a SANCTUARY COUNTRY CONTROLLED BY ISLAM/MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND THE ISLAMIC CONTROLLED U.N.

Donald Allan, thank you for that response! You are soooooo correct. The big difference IS our European immigrants 3, 4, 5, generations ago were desiring the CANADIAN way of life, they loved everything about it, they wanted to fit in, contribute, assimilate, not change Canada to whatever it was they came from. So instead of new motions or laws preventing Canadians to bend to the way of the newcomer, there should be motions or laws that state new comers should honour our customs, honour our way of life and assimilate. When in Rome……..

JAY…Does the REBEL have to hire a special linguist to help us decipher your posts now?

re: Geert Wilders….“makes most people want to throw up”…..“He looks good?”…..and everything in between. Most people hate him…he has many fans???? Is this your attempt at muslim deception Jay?

I warned you before Jay, alas it looks like you have graduated from the cough syrup to the lysol can.

@ sally citizen , Your grandmother had loads of intuition. I’ve told the anecdote before here . I went to buy the paper at our local corner market owned by immigrants from Czechoslovakia. Pierre Trudeau with his stupid little rose was on the front page and Mrs. Klement looked and said “HE BOLSHEVIK,HE BOLSHEVIK”. An immigrant that escaped the communist pigs could smell one a hundred miles away. We lack the wisdom of our immigrants that despised what they came from and loved Canada for what it offered. And they didn’t try to change us like these new immigrants are doing.

Much has been said about M-103 establishing criticisms of Islam as hate speech and making it a criminal offense. But do we really know what type of criminal offense it is? Has it really hit home?
M-103 when enacted will not establish run of the mill crime. M-103 in criminal law falls into the category of POLITICAL CRIME. It is dangerous because political crimes are more associated with authoritarian regimes , totalitarian regimes and used to stifle speech against the will of the government. Sound familiar?
I don’t trust the RCMP. Certainly don’t trust the Toronto Police . And the Quebec Police? This entire investigation of the Mosque shootings is suspect .No doubt in my mind that the PMO was involved before the ambulances left for the hospital.
Iqra Khalid ? Her long flight from Pakistan on Muslim Brotherhood Airways ended in a parachute drop into the Mississauga Riding. Scary what is happening to our country.

I remember my grandmother always griping & complaining about Pierre Elliot Trudeau. A first generation Canadian of European decent, she & her husband worked their fingers to the bone with only limited education. They made a wonderful life for herself & our family. She hated what PET did to Canada. My family has been Conservative ever since. Happy to see Joe Oliver make the PET & JT comparisons. I’m sure my beloved grandma is rollin in her grave. RIP grandma! We will vote out this Trudeau gov’t next election!

Geert Wilders is the leader of a political party in the Netherlands called the “Party for Freedom”.
Looks so queer with his blond hair and his claim for “The Party of Freedom”.
Most people hate him. The European Union hates him. And most of all, advocates of open borders and mass immigration hate him. His hair and facial expression makes most people want to throw up.
Because Wilders opposes mass Muslim migration he has many fans. They hold their noses and say they support him. He has proclaimed that Muslims are uglier than him, and that is all that matters.
He is telling the truth. Most Muslims have darker facial features and more facial hair. Most Muslim men, or at least those men from the middle east, have fuller beards.
The Rebel is the only Canadian media you can trust to describe Geert Wilder’s face and body hair.
He looks good.

Too bad the Ezra Levant show could not be filmed in Amsterdam.

Always interesting to listen to Joe Oliver!

Good comments on how P. E. Trudeau created our debt problem. Before the election I posted an article showing our Debt history in constant dollars, titled: “Canada’s Debt, A Liberal Legacy” Too bad more people did not read it before they voted. Here is a link:

Gees, what will CBC do if Geert wins? To-date they refuse to say his name on the air because he’s such a super-extremist!!

Good insight on Justin. He is his fathers son after all. Gerald Butts influence cannot be overstated, since as was alluded to, Justin’s strength is as an actor. He simply does not have the intellect to pull this off on his own. That Marxist influence from his father is huge. I suspect the son Alexander, who we don’t hear that much about, is the political wit who along with Butts, help direct his leadership. The debt hole he is digging with his spending is something to remind millennials of continually until the election. Unbelievable the mess he has made so far.

Looking forward to that April leadership debate with Joe as moderator. That should be awesome.

I enjoy Mr. Oliver for the simple reason he demonstrates rational thought based on a set of moral virtues.
