Trudeau gives apology — and $10 million — to Canadian terrorist who killed U.S. Army medic

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The timing cannot be a coincidence; 365 days in a year, and Justin Trudeau chose the Fourth of July to not only give $10 million dollars to Canadian-born Al Qaeda terrorist Omar Khadr, but to actually give him an apology in the name of Canada.

I’ll show you an Al Qaeda propaganda video of Omar Khadr with explosives in Afghanistan. We don’t know how many Canadians Khadr murdered through these IEDs, or how much of a bounty he received.

We do know that he killed U.S. Army medic Christopher Speer, husband to Tabitha Speer, dad to Taryn and Tanner Speer.

Before Khadr killed him, Speer spent as much time giving first aid to Afghan kids as he did to U.S. soldiers.

In Guantanamo Bay, Khadr boasted to guards that killing Speer was the best day in his life. He called a black female guard a bitch and a slave.

Khadr confessed — not under duress but with the approval of his lawyers — and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.

But the Obama administration cut a deal, so he’s back on Canada’s streets.

And now Trudeau is giving him an apology and more than $10 million.

Not a penny, though, for the family of Christopher Speer.

That’s Trudeau’s message to America on the Fourth of july.

And it’s Trudeau message to every one of us, including our armed forces, our wounded vets from Afghanistan too.

NEXT: Aaron Wudrick of Canadian Taxpayers Federation joins me to talk about Trudeau's disgraceful decision.

THEN: Sun columnist Lorne Gunter and I discuss Trudeau leaving Alberta out of his Canada Day speech.

Breaking News **

Govt of Canada has paid Khadr $10.5 million, bypassing US injunctions.

Globe and Mail:
The payment halts efforts by lawyers for the widow of a U.S. Delta Force sergeant and a retired U.S. special forces soldier from seeking an emergency injunction to stop Ottawa from giving the multimillion-dollar settlement to Mr. Khadr and his lawyers.

“The injunction is moot. It is absolutely moot,” University of Ottawa law professor Amir Attaran told The Globe. “Plus, if they are smart, that money is not sitting in Omar Khadr’s name, it is sitting in a trust fund or it is sitting in a corporation or some other structure, and good luck in enforcing against that.”

This will go down as one of the biggest scandals in Canadian history.

Hopefully Trump will get wind of this and retaliate.

Check this out. I can’t get my head around a Canadian Government paying a terrorist who admitted to killing Canadian and American soldiers. I sincerely hope families of those soldiers sue Khadr for every penny he receives Come on Canadians don’t just sit back and watch Trudeau do in Canada he needs to go ASAP.

The only “positive” out of this is that this kind of finger poke in America’s chest does not go unnoticed in Trump’s Washington…. All the Boy Blunder’s little smartass actions are being recorded and one day will be used to bloody his pickle nose in Canada-U.S. trade relations and treaties… As I’ve said before, when that happens, even the Laurentian Elites are going to start planning how to shuffle TBB off the stage…

Bravo Zulu, Well said and THANK YOU for your service. I as at least ONE TRUE CANADIAN appreciates your service in order to protect me, my family and my country. Always seemed incredible that our own governments sent our military to protect and serve the enemy in their countries while at the same time importing them here and paying them to conquer and destroy us and what used to be, OUR COUNTRY! I just don’t understand and I will never accept it!

I know it is a lot to ask but is their any way Tabitha Speer, widow of Sgt. Christopher Speer or Layne Morris the soldier blinded would or could come on and speak to Canada? I suppose with their ongoing suit to stop Trudeau from giving the money to her husbands murderer and to them instead would prevent them from speaking to the press? Canada needs to recognise that Speer’s widow and friend are the true victims in this.
If Omar gets his hands on that kind of money where do we think the bulk of it will go? If this travesty is allowed to go forward that money must be tracked, carefully and meticulously. (What are the chances of that when they don’t track him, and let him travel etc.)

I am just livid. please tell me the CBC piece Jamie posted is not true. the part about Harper making an apology to Omar on Friday.

- The Liberals are bringing in fake refugees by the tens of thousands & jacking up taxes so taxpayers can pay for their free housing, free healthcare, etc. so the fact they’re willing to hand Omar the terrorist $10 million on the 4th of July is sad, but not surprising.

- The Liberals have shown contempt for the Canadian taxpayers & it shows at every turn.

- The idiot man-child’s snub of Alberta was no accident. Reading speeches id one of the very few things he does well. It was a deliberate snub by the speech writer – one of Trudeau’s puppet masters.

This decision should be crowd funded by the Liberals and their supporters not Canadian tax dollars .
Also I would like to apologise to the USA and their military for our traitor dictator and insulting you on the 4th of July .
To our people in the military . In the future if you ask for assistance from the US military don’t be surprised if it is late and maybe not at all . Good luck .
To the Canadian public if you had any doubt what Trudeau stands for I hope this help you to see the real Trudeau .

I have to admit I was and am pretty angry with this decision myself. As a whole the present government is well out of touch with many of the people it “leads”.

But, we should not blame the government of Canada for what has happened. Do not blame Trudeau, who is a spoiled and smug and out of touch person more interested in selfies and travel to exotic places. Do not blame his back room, agenda driven and out of touch advisors, do not blame his cabinet or his back bencher’s ………….and certainly do not blame his personal media support team – the CBC.

I place the blame for this decision squarely on the shoulders of the people who put that government in to power. The Canadian voter. A lot of people seem to support this and I actually begin to wonder if my service and my loyalties to the people of this country might have been misplaced. I hope I am wrong and time will tell.

That this announcement was made on the fourth of July simply adds to this. You can be certain that date was not picked by accident. Why would Canada and the Liberals deliberately do this to their neighbour, their largest trading partner and their ally?

To me this was a good read and one that made me think of the very last Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan. I did not know him well but we always said hello in passing when we met at Eggers and Phoenix while we were in Kabul. Funny thing is – I wonder how much his wife and brand new child got?

Yeah I know ……………………….

10 million to this guy and both Liberals and Conservatives treat our wounded and battered soldiers like dirt. Seems to be more respect for Muslims than our own people and those that serve to protect the country. What kind of society are they creating ?
commented 2017-07-05 05:51:18 -0400
If there is one silver lining to Trudeau’s latest outrage it’s that this obscene $10M jackpot and apology just might be enough to put Andrew Scheer over the edge in 2 years and be the next Prime Minister of Canada. (Knock on wood)

JT might just have pissed off one person too many this time.

This response is starting a horrible precedence.

Justin f*ckhead Trudeau – YOU are not my PM, you never were and you never will be, so don’t you apologize on my behalf either you POS.

You’re not apologizing on my behalf mr. part time drama teacher.POS.

Jean Chrétien started this whole thing with the friendship he had with the terrorist father, because the father was donating to the Liberals & when the father was arrested in Afghanistan & sentenced to 40 yrs in jail, Chrétien interfered & he was let out. Apparently Khadr has been accepted at a nursing school, can you believe it, oh yeah, that’s the nurse I would want to look after me if I was in the hospital, me the infidel. Why didn’t anyone in his cabinet stand up to Trudeau in this decision, they’re all like a bunch of bobble head sheep. I hope that Speer’s widow sues the crap out of Khadr, now that he will have the money to pay. This whole disastrous decision seems surreal right now, cannot wrap my head around it. Any Liberal who agrees with all this, should head for a psychiatrist couch sooner than later, seriously.
commented 2017-07-05 00:27:57 -0400
Do not give an apology or a monetary reward in my name Justin. Shame on you.
commented 2017-07-05 00:27:14 -0400
Justin what exactly are you apologizing to him for? You are a supreme POS you make PET look respectful. If you or anyone you love is ever hurt by this scumbag or any of his ilk i will laugh my head off as you suffer. Doing this on July 4th shows just how ignorant you are. And your calculated insult to Alberta was ignorant as well, but not on the same level as this.

His vapid emotive drama school delivery evokes zero love of Canada on Canadas 150. He is the worst of Canadian Prime Ministers in that he can’t speak to Canadian values but rather parrots the globalist drumbeat, we are all generic lovers of love and love to love ……love, and Kim Jong Ill is wrong, but loving like Castro. Whom he loves.

Lee Horseman no offense taken , Edmonton has changed a lot for the worse in the last 2 decades. People cannot drive worth a damn , or park worth a damn, the socialists in city hall have seen to that.
I was born here but i have very little pride in the city other than the natural structures within it.

Even if you think we didn’t send enough cookies to Khadr while in U.S. detention for his admitted crimes which include murder in the name of jihad, isn’t bringing him back and granting him his freedom a cringe worthy enough reward for his anti-western hatred? Perhaps his burka wearing adult sister who sais “so what” to the killing of U.S. medic Andrew Speer will be rewarded with a 1.5 million dollar house from which to spew her hatred. Maybe he will buy his Jihadi mother, adult wife of hardcore terrorist Ahmed Said Khadr an equally luxurious house. I’m thinking she will encourage him to send money to terrorists overseas. We should watch for that but I think his leftist lawyer will advise against it. I’m hoping Omar never sees a dime and will have to give Andrew Speers wife and his collegue who lost an eye in recognition of the 134 million dollar ruling a U.S. court found in the civil suit against him. Its just wrong Canada is not only giving him a second chance at freedom and the good life we enjoy, but showering him with the 10 million dollars that every hard working, none murderous citizen in our country hope we either win in a lottery or earn by own hard work. This is an insult to decency.

The embarrassment and shame I feel at this moment is profound. While our asshole PM tours around the world showing off his faggot socks and pissing away OUR money on any feel good projects that have no objective, other than to make him look good to his UN wannabe buddies, we suffer. $10,500 for the murder of an American medic. How much for a Prime Minister?

This infatuation Trudeau and his followers have with terrorists and especially Khadr is truly nauseating. And what’s tantamount to ten million dollar prize paid by our Government for slaying an American soldier is totally reprehensible. Of course, the Canadian MSM just swallows whatever their hearthrob says and regurgitates it as a fairy tale for the masses to consume and believe. This Government is bent and does not seek to maintain the standard of decency God fearing, hard working Canadians expect.
