Andrew Scheer is the new Conservative Party leader. Can he beat Trudeau?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

There’s a lot to like about new CPC leader Andrew Scheer, for conservatives. 

Even his style is conservative — he’s boring. Which is refreshing, at a time when Justin Trudeau is at the recent G7 and NATO meetings, showing off his socks. 

Scheer is a normal guy: five kids, no taxpayer funded nannies. Drives a minivan, not a private jet.

And I like some of the things Scheer promised in his convention night speech:

Standing by freedom of speech, scrapping the carbon tax, and saying the words “Islamic terror.”

After a long, heated campaign, Scheer is likely tougher and better now than he was six months ago.

I hope so. I’ll show you some clips from my interview with him six months ago. I asked him tough questions and it seemed weird to me that he didn’t have an answer to them all, particularly on the hot topics of vetting immigrants for “Canadian values.”

I’m sure he’s tougher now. More experienced. I hope so.

Because the attacks are starting already.

The Liberals and the Media Party are going to demonize him, like they did with Preston Manning and Stockwell Day.

Look for the CBC to start ramping up their attacks this week, and going after Scheer’s family.

And us at The Rebel? I’ll tell you what I think our job is going forward.

Stay with us for more on this subject, with Rebel contributor Candice Malcolm.

Being the speaker of the house has allowed Scheer to observe and learn especially about his opponents. He has had the opportunity to observe strengths and weaknesses of all MPs. I am excited to support Andrew Scheer and look forward to 2019 as his confidence grows. He is smart, articulate and very likable. I think Canadians will respect that over narcissism, arrogance and elitism. Being Speaker of the House is a plus Ezra, in my opinion. Cheers!

DAVID WHITE—-I wasn’t referring to Andrew Scheer as a bible pumper, I was referring to Ron Voss’s favorite, who ever that is. I like Scheer, although I think Bernier would have been stronger when the Liberals and their bought and paid for media start the dirty tricks.
You are correct in saying that we all have to stick together now.

Answer to the question – NOPE!

Canadians are the new Sweden.

Everything that begins to happen to that entitled, spoiled and smug Canadian society is exactly what happened in Sweden.

Point in fact – Trump in Europe – the talk is how he will remove America from the climate hoax.

Point in fact – Trudeau in Europe – the big talk is the pink socks he wore.

Canada has a long way to fall before it its bottom – but it is coming.

I wonder why so many lefties and some righties have such a big problem with someone’s Christian faith? Name calling like, “Bible pumper”, or “Bible thumper”, etc. Grow up!

Why bother even mentioning it … unless Christian really piss you off … why? … because they believe in something you don’t? What ever happened to the leftie “equality for all” mantra? or the constitution “freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of religion”?

Ron Joseph…Andrew Scheer is much more than a bible pumper. He can win as well, don’t be so eager to sell him short. Over 2 years to go. A lot will happen. I think that is ample time for Trudumb to cut his own throat. Bernier will make a good high ranking cabinet minister. Sticking together is also OUR challenge.

RON JOSEPH commented, “okay I guess by your thinking ,I am a pragmatist because I wanted a candidate that could win the whole shooting match in 2019”. As if I and others who picked other candidates don’t. Sorry, that (“could win”) is no assurance that he would win; nothing less than your opinion not based upon what he stood for, but because, in your view, you believe that he could carry Quebec. I’ll leave it to you to decide if that reveals a pragmatist.
Another candidate, called for the privatization of the CBC, opposed a carbon tax and rejected the hoax of man-made climate change (the only candidate to do some), attends two of The Rebel rallies (Calgary and Toronto), opposed Bill M-103, had an immigration policy considering our security, valued the sanctity of life, valued free speech, valued the importance of a strong family in a civilized socirpety, accepted many fiscal policies like Bernier’s proposed flat tax and a simplification of the tax system, like Bernier supported getting rid of the marketing boards, but doing so gradually over time, etc. Some ‘bible thumper’! I can see why you didn’t vote for him, because apparently you have no interest in the candidates’ policies, and how they are aligned with conservative values and principles, especially if they come from a Christian candidate.

Ron Voss—okay I guess by your thinking ,I am a pragmatist because I wanted a candidate that could win the whole shooting match in 2019, instead of a bible pumper which would take care of my religious needs which most people don’t give a shit about.
You are right Ron, I am guilty as I wanted a winner as that is all that matters when some of us are trying to get rid of Trudeau.

Most of the greatest statesman across Western Europe the United States and Canada were all butt ugly…
Maybe people are fed appearance Politics !!

I guess I have had my nose so far into the US situation I had no idea that Lauren left. Very sad to hear. I really liked Lauren.

- This leadership race should not have taken almost 2 years to happen. The media party will try to make Scheer out to be Hitler. It won’t stick but they’ll need to take the spotlight off failed Liberal policies.

- Scheer has 2 years to get up to speed. He looked evasive & unprepared in earlier interviews. He looked better in ones I’ve seen since. Hopefully this trend will continue.

- Manchester-like attacks will happen in Canada, it’s only a matter of time. There are many Muslims who fled to Canada in the past to escape from extremism. Trudeau & his Liberal party seem to be desperate to bring those same extremists into Canada.

Not handsome and hair is not that great. Not enough of a shiny pony to beat Trudeau I am afraid.

Jimmy Reece,

Besides, The Rebel are better off without Prosobiec. He was a kooky conspiracy theorist and kissed Trump’s ass. If Ezra wants to get someone else from Washington, perhaps he could strive for someone more objective this time.
commented 2017-05-30 13:32:20 -0400
Ron Voss,

Ezra won’t tell you anything.

He had a falling out with Lauren Southern – his most popular contributor and said nothing now that she is gone, but keeps her name among The Rebel staff, because she was so popular and her videos got the most views on YouTube. He wants people to think that she is still with The Rebel.

RON JOSEPH commented, “Bernier also received 54% of Alberta’s votes. This is an amazing number as Alberta had 14 candidates to choose from.” So, what’s your point as far as relevance with respect to my previous comment and observation:
“Seriously is that the reason for conservatives, not pragmatists, to have voted for libertarian Bernier because he would have ensured substantial Quebec support” and “would have hammered Trudeau”??

Space Moose, according to another source, Anime Right News (ARN), Prosobiec was fired from The Rebel by Ezra Levant for reporting on the ongoing investigation into the murder of Seth Rich and the recent leads that have developed:
http://animeright.news/zanting/jack-posobiec-fired-from-the-rebel-by-ezra-levant-for-reporting-on-seth-rich

So, will Ezra honestly tell us if he fired Posobiec over his coverage of the suspicious death of Seth Rich? I doubt it. And Ezra is a lawyer, so you can be sure that he has a legal agreement in hand with Posobeic that will prevent him from talking about the details for his being let go.

Again, if Posobiec was let go over his coverage of the suspicious death of Seth Rich, check out this report by an independent TV news company, One America Now:

With slimy Obama somewhat out of the picture, there are but a couple of road blocks to deal with and the Conservatives would be on their way. If the cbc is called out enough and Trudeau continues to be an embarrassment every time he opens his mouth, a path would begin to emerge. A spotlight exposing any attempt by foreign entities, such as devil incarnate Soros, US union illegal money, UN meddling and Elections Canada pulling their nefarious stunts, Scheer would win in a landslide. If the conservatives are able to continue as what appears to be quite a unified bunch, this would hold us in good stead as well. Time will tell but I am more hopeful now that the drawn out leadership affair is over, and enough time remains to form a winning strategy.

JACK CARTER….What are you going to say when Islamic terrorism rises to such an uncontrollable level that civil unrest turns into out and out street fighting and a much bloodier situation that we currently face? I’m speaking of Europe, but it is on its’ way here as well thanks to Sock Potato. And Jack, as GLEN CRAIG accurately points out, Justin performed the SHAHADA for all to see, look it up on you tube. Do you think this is some kind of joke? If so you are a naive idiot apologist, which is likely the case.

JACK… How is that guaranteed Hillary win going? Keep those “guaranteed” predictions coming, you have such a good handle on things, don’t you.

Andrew Scheer would have no problem winning if he started campaigning now and and drilled this into people’s minds as his opening for a campaign platform.

Reduce the income tax by 15% right across the board for everybody.

Stem the flow and vett migrants at our borders.

End the temporary foreign worker program until such a time that they were required by the country while we are in an employment crisis.

Shrink the size of government.

Restore the tax free status to combat soldiers.

Completely stop the gifting of money to countries that seem questionable to Canada’s rights and values.

Absolutely no gifting of money to private individuals.

Raise the standard of living for seniors to an acceptable degree of dignity with the money withheld from foreign dictatorships.

Annihilate the assault on free speech.

Normalize the curriculum in our schools and start teaching history again.

Prosecute violent protesters at peaceful rally’s

Stop the funding for loud and vocal / violent minority groups.

Remove the rainbow flag on Parliament Hill as the only flags that have reason to fly there are represented by provinces, territories, international allegiance and of course our own Canadian flag.

Empower responsible parents once again to raise their children as they see fit

With this as a start I’m sure the support for him would begin to snowball.

That buzz article is just awful. It is disturbing how they are so hypocritical when it comes to fake news. But not as disturbing as how closely they monitor the rebel.

As for Andrew Lawton, he recently received more duties at the radio station. His show went from two to three hours. I can see how the extra hour makes him too busy for the rebel. But that is just speculation on my part.

Yes Scheer can beat Spud, as long as the Conservatives don’t make their usual mistake of moving left to attract liberal voters. The lesson: Nobody wants a ‘me too’ ‘Conservative light’ party.
commented 2017-05-30 11:29:08 -0400
Well, we have Scheer now and not Bernier, so we will have to see if he can beat Trudeau. That really is the main focus. We must get Trudeau out of office before he completely destroys Canada.

Ron Voss—Bernier also received 54% of Alberta’s votes. This is an amazing number as Alberta had 14 candidates to choose from.
Ron, when two totally different areas of the Country like the same Politician, he is a winner.
Bernier would have hammered Trudeau while Scheer is still learning the ropes.

Ron, it is probably some sort of conspiracy … or it could be just a simple mistake. Either or.

Interesting on the Rebel home page that the poster promoting the The Rebel Live event scheduled for June 17, 2017 has a photo of Posobiec to the right of the photo of Jordan Peterson. However, if one clicks on the link, the poster now has a photo of Caolan Robertson replacing Posobiec.
In the video promoting the event Ezra announces that “our new Washington Bureau Chief Jack Posobiec” will be present.

Jack said, "Do you still support Trump, even though he has been a complete shit show since January … "

You know when a socialist accuses a right winger, it will most definitely be a lie.

A liberal’s/socialist’s perception of what makes a “shit show” is simply doing things differently than they would.

It is the typical leftie’s arrogant "I know everything and if you do not agree with me you are a ____ (fill in the blank with some accusation and insult).

Seriously is that the reason for conservatives, not pragmatists, to have voted for libertarian Bernier because he would have ensured substantial Quebec support??

Bill Elder made an excellent comment saying that if Party Members had fully understood how to mark their ballots, their first pick Bernier would have won, ensuring substantial Quebec support.
I cannot believe that O’Leary, a person that dropped out of the race, received around 6% of the vote. Were the Party Members totally uninformed people as it was Headline News across Canada when O’Leary dropped out? My point is that a good percentage of these Wasted Votes would have gone to Bernier, making him the uncontested winner and next Prime Minister.
