New Governor General mocks religious people (but believes in aliens?)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Canada's new Governor General is former astronaut Julie Payette. She has a lot of opinions, and she wants you to know them.

Except, that’s like a judge giving a political speech. Because the Governor General’s job isn’t just about cutting ribbons. It’s actually about being the Queen's representative, as well as the judge when it comes to constitutional matters, political crises and deadlocks in Parliament.

I’ll show you a clip of a speech Payette gave the other day to a science conference:

Can you believe that still today in learned society, in houses of government, unfortunately, we're still debating and still questioning whether humans have a role in the Earth warming up or whether even the Earth is warming up, period?

And we are still debating and still questioning whether life was a divine intervention or whether it was coming out of a natural process let alone, oh my goodness, a random process.

Yeah, we are still debating that. Because it’s a free country.

And because science isn’t decided by press releases or lobby groups.

When the country's constitutional arbiter mocks people within Parliament for holding a certain point of view, you can’t trust her to be a neutral, non-partisan judge, should a crisis ever reach that point.

As for people who believe in God, the Queen happens to also be the head of the Church of England. Someone forgot to tell that to Julie Payette.

Her mockery of Christians and the superstitions she lumps in with it is weird, because she herself has talked about aliens. (WATCH and I’ll show you.)

According to her, if you believe that God created the universe, you’re a kook.

But if you believe in aliens, you’re a scientist.

The fact that Trudeau and the Liberals love Payette’s uppity partisanship shows they want to destroy the monarchy in Canada, and wring it out for all its worth in the meantime.

TONIGHT: Dr. Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum talks about the mass casualty Islamic terrorist attack in New York City on October 31; then our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid explains why the NDP's education policy on Gay/Straight Alliances is undermining parental authority and even puts young people at risk.

Mark Chadwick commented 1 day ago, “When Trudeau got elected the first thing they did was to remove a picture of the Queen in some building in Ottawa to a back room.”

When Obama took over his job, the first thing he did was get rid of the Winston Churchill bust in the Oval Office.

Don’t think we can take 2 more years of Tru-dopeah . Praying for a snap election and a real leader to step forward .

LIZA ROSIE thanks for the link to the Rex Murphy article.
http://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex-murphy-governor-general-places-herself-as-umpire-of-questions-of-faith-science
I commented elsewhere, “If Payette chooses to behave like a politician, she should run in an election to get elected!”. Rex Murphy said it more elegantly in his article,
“Policy is for the elected, not the selected”.
As well he added, “And however much she holds strong opinions on the subject as Julie Payette the individual, it is not in her brief as our Governor General to advocate her personal views under the stamp of Her Majesty’s office.”
The article included an extended clip of Payette’s ‘lecture’. She furthermore declared, “Democracy and society have always gained from learned debates, whether it is political, scientific, economic. But we have to remain vigilant, and we cannot let ourselves fall into complacency. And we must be vocal, all the time, everywhere, every single one of us so that we can deconstruct misinformation.” When she talks of “we” of course she means, so-called “progressives” like herself, Justin Trudeau, Environment Minister Catherine McKinnon, Gerald Butts, the media party, etc, should vigorously continue its efforts to ‘construct misinformation’. But there is good advice in her ‘lecture’ for those of us who love and value truth, despite all the odds aligned against us, ‘we must be vocal, all the time, everywhere, every single one of us so that we can deconstruct misinformation’.

Al Peterson: (in reference to your lengthy comment down the page a bit)
Excellent analysis of the illness that plagues our leftist political climate in Canada! You hit the proverbial nail on the head.

The libs cannot learn from history. They are too self absorbed, stupid, ignorant to the needs of the common Canadian.
They will continue to make the same mistakes over and over as long as they do not have to foot the bill.
They care not a damn for this country or it’s citizens and worry only about what they can obtain from the country in the form of money and power.
The Aussie Imam Tawhidi accused Justin Bin Trudeau of robbing the Canadian people by awarding $10,000,000 to a terrorist.

Jessie Peterson nope the liberal party created them before and are now doing it again.

Sheila’s comments remind me of residential schools trying to separate the children from their foolish parents’ beliefs to educate them properly. Haven’t we done this before? Hasn’’t Canadian society decided that this is bad?
commented 2017-11-05 00:32:46 -0400
The Governor General is named to her position by the government of the people—our elected representatives and our Prime Minister. She is appointed to her position by the Queen, who she will represent.

So disappointing that our current Governor General made such sneering comments. She follows a long line of distinguished men and women who represented the Queen in Canada with grace, wisdom, and service.

What should our reaction be?

We also have a strong tradition of praying for the Governor General. We take that tradition from a most basic prayer in Canada: “God save the Queen”.

Maybe people shouldn’t be in such a hurry to invite what one might think was Otherworld terrestrials into our universe… We may not like what we find

(Couldn’t get this video last night. Tried multiple times.)
In fear of sounding Hollywood wives, this woman dressed like she was going to a casual social gathering for her swearing in ceremony.
Usually, for a once in a lifetime and prestigious event as this, one would be dressed in your Sunday best. Mrs. Trudeau also wore a pair of slacks and shirt.
From moment one, she made her statement that this job is just a nice little, no big deal job. She has invalidated the seriousness and honour in receiving this appointment.

What’s with these women? They don’t dress up, their hair looks like they just got up or went through a car wash.

People who never outgrew university lifestyle.

The origin of that first life that started off the evolutionary process is still a conundrum for evolutionists. However, for Payette that is settled as she mocks that “life was a divine intervention” and, instead, trumpets that it came “out of a natural process”, which would contradict one of the laws of biology, biogenesis, namely, that life comes from life. The answer for that first life according to nobel laureate, Francis Crick (1916-2004), the co-discoverer of the DNA double helix structure, was not that it came “out of a natural process”, but, rather, that it was ‘life from space’, namely, that aliens sent life to earth, known as ‘directed panspermia’! (I wonder if they are telling the kids about Crick’s proposition in school?)
A lot of the impetus for SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, is to find that ‘creator’, aliens, that Payette believes in.

Payette is a painfully transparent woman. I am sure in her corrupted and miniaturized worldview, she sees the limited GG appointment (in terms of tenure) as her opportunity to push herself forward as a public intellectual and a potential leader. Not being the brightest of women, she confuses her poorly expressed opinions on issues, about which she has only the sketchiest of understanding, as indicative of intellect. It is in fact indicative of intellect’s opposite.
commented 2017-11-04 16:55:11 -0400
Considering what the Governor General’s position is for should they not be appointed by the official opposition to ensure no conflict of interest with the governing party..?? Common sense would say yes.!
commented 2017-11-04 16:43:47 -0400
A GG as air headed as the PM who appointed her. That goes for most of his cabinet, too.

These people make a good case to GET OUT ON VOTING DAY AND VOTE.

JAY KELLY commented 15 hours ago
Such tremendously disappointing comments by the Governor General. Many people had hope and enthusiasm for her youthful vigor, her scientific background, and her experienced service to Canada.
-————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Jay, I see you , like most lefties, rely on the unreliable and meaningless. “Youthful vigour” sounds all touchy -feely but assures nothing. Supposedly our PM also has that quality and he is destroying the country with it. Luka Magnotta also had youthful vigour. So what? Youthful vigour might be a good requirement for a physical job like a cop or fireman but has nothing to do with being a GG.

And how would her “scientific background” aid her in being a GG? The GG represents the Queen in her absence. She isn’t finding a cure for cancer.What we need is statesman. Someone with a modicum of decorum and a love for the country and its institutions and traditions. Absent in the current GG.

Her “experienced service to Canada”? She went into space to advance her career. I have no problem with that But it has nothing to do with being made GG. Obviously it worked. She is now the GG which has nothing to do with being an astronaut. But as always, the Liberals are all about celebrity and status- being the party of the Laurentian Elite.

The problem is that half wit lefties vote for celebrities, the whole time railing against the Right’s perceived “American stye politics”. What could be more “American” than this shallow obsession with celebrity?Meanwhile they are accepting foreign funding including from the US left wing.

So what we have is a GG who has no grounding in Canadian history or its traditions and no interest in learning about them. Instead we got another celebrity wanna be oracle. We actually have a whole government full of them. I think I’ll go make plans to not celebrate Canada Day if this is what Canada is becoming.

Diversity is our downfall.
commented 2017-11-04 15:13:16 -0400
Yes Jay, that is exactly what she said.
commented 2017-11-04 14:58:54 -0400
I sent a long note to my MP expressing my displeasure with the new GG. I stated that she should resign or be removed because of her clear disdain for a large segment of the Canadian population, both in her comments and her condescending attitude in the presentation.
I also encouraged him to get after Andrew Scheer, for him to get a little backbone and go after Trudeau.
We’ll see what happens, but I won’t hold my breath waiting for action.
commented 2017-11-04 14:40:10 -0400
You better not disagree with our GG or she will run you over ! Where have I heard about using vehicles as weapons before ? 🤔

A zoned out space cadet GG – perfect compliment to the selfie party’s airhead caucus. Climate Barbie, PM Zoolander, now the Giha cosmonaut.

commented 2017-11-04 11:47:57 -0400
If the GG encounters loud opposition at her public appearances, maybe, she will keep her disdain for the majority of Canadians to herself; and start behaving as a proper GG. I would prefer she step down!
commented 2017-11-04 11:41:30 -0400
Peter: Actually her hair looks as discombobulated as her thoughts. Maybe fixing one will help the other.
And as I mentioned on another thread, it is clear that she was screened for her position by Trudeau not on the basis of her suitability to fill the historic, non-partisan, non-confrontational role of GG, but on the basis of her agreement with his globalist, post-nationalist vision and policies. Putting a “scientist” in there, one who supports him and his policies, will add public credibility to his destructive agenda.
Remember – she does a lot of public appearances, and with her science credentials she will be immediately believed by a gullible public whenever she speaks on anything having to do with science, e.g., climate change, evolution. She is actually dangerous, and her term in office is going to be a nightmare. She is a celebrity, and so will be believed without question.

I call it swollen-head syndrome. Like Trudope the noteriety has gone to her head and suddenly she is the Oracle of truth. Hopefully she will do something with her hair.
