After judges try to overturn Brexit, the UK press did something Canada’s Media Party never would

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In June, 52 per cent of Brits voted to leave the European Union. The voter turn-out was 72 per cent — the highest ever for a UK referendum, and higher than in any general election in nearly 25 years.

But a “Remain” voter filed a lawsuit against the results, heard by three unelected judges.

Look at how the British press reacted.

“WHO DO YOU THINK EU ARE?” That’s the Sun, one of the most popular papers. “Enemies of the people,” screamed the Daily Mail, with the names and pictures of the three smirking judges right on the cover. Even one of the fancier papers, the Daily Telegraph, said: “The Judges versus the People.”

In a democracy like ours, Parliament drafts the laws, and courts are supposed to interpret them, or strike down laws that are illegal.

But in Canada, judges make the laws.

And no media in the country dare to criticize our courts.

It’s unthinkable that four Canadian newspapers would do what these British papers did: name and shame the undemocratic toffs who thought they could overturn the will of 17.4 million voters.

In Canada, most journalists work for the government anyway.

You the voter? Your job is to shut up and pay for it all.

NEXT: Andrew Scheer joins me to talk about his bid for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada.

THEN: Tom Flanagan and I talk about the CPC leadership race, as well as his study on First Nations people.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Canadians are getting the government they deserve with a village idiot as PM.

The safety of Canadians is not this Governments concern, this should be obvious by now to almost anyone who isn’t paid to think otherwise, a no confidence vote has to be achieved, and a temporary Government put in place until we can legally elect a Government more inline with Canadian values and is not corruptible by the left.

There must be a legal, civilized process to make this happen.

A halt has to be put in place on all mass immigration, which is what the Government is trying to do, don’t kid yourselves into thinking this is anything less.

1) Making new laws to support this, as covertly as possible I might add.
2) Spending 100’s of Millions on new services for mass immigration.
3) Even creating new uniforms for our National Police force for the new immigration.

Look no further then to Europe to see what our Country will become in a few short years if mass immigration is allowed to take place, you just can’t slam well over a million immigrants into our small Country over the course of a few years and expect everything will be fine, as it will fundamentally change our Country, and I am quite certain we as citizens did not agree to that in any way, shape or form!

Globalization is being forced on us people, soon we will have no way to stop it.

Has everyone gone mad in Canada, why are people so afraid to speak up?

Why aren’t people more upset about this?

Ron Voss: True the vetting process isn’t as simple as asking the question – “Do you reject Sharia law and the teaching in the Qu’aran to not befriend an infidel and when the opportunity comes to behead them if they don’t submit to Allah?” Maybe the answer is a simple one though. Instead why not deal with Syrian refugees the way Trump proposed. Have “safe zones” in Syria. Don’t bring them over. If no one has a concrete way of screening these people just don’t let them in. There is no point in risking the safety of Canadians because of a few extremists that might slip through.

“you end up with a so-called unprincipled ‘conservatives’ like Ontario’s PC leader Patrick Brown, "

You’re right on that, RON VOSS. Whether it’s property rights, the HRCs, or sex-ed, his “Conservative” principles are just like Groucho Marx’s principles: “if you don’t like them, I have others.”

Out here in the country, all the kids are singing:

Paddy Brown
His pants fell down
And everyone could see
A little pair
With peach-fuzz hair
As green as green can be.

For the following reason, we should stop almost all low skilled Immigration: A recent US study has shown that low skill jobs in many cases did not leave the US for foreign countries, but were replaced by ROBOTS. (Auto Manufacturing etc.) The study also suggests that this trend will continue, and take another 25% of low skill jobs. If Trudeau and the Liberals are aware of this trend, why bring in any unskilled workers ? The answer of course is they want Globalization, which means open borders.
Will Andrew Scheer bring this up in Parliament?
commented 2016-11-05 23:14:11 -0400
Those are good points Ron, however so far its looking like we are doomed to be ruled by politicians who are all basically the same. Its depressing.
commented 2016-11-05 21:33:41 -0400
Some issues are easier to give a straight answer to than others. For example, do you believe in man made climate change and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, primarily CO2? Kelly Leitch says, Yes. Great to have such a straight answer on this matter from Leitch, which together with her support of Bill C-16, which will unleash a gross assault on freedom, in my view would strike her off my list of a suitable leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

RYAN JANKE, you say, “The fact that Andrew won’t give you a clear answer to your question about vetting refugees is concerning”. Screening immigrants for Canadian values seemed to be the answer that Ezra wanted to hear as fas a ‘clear’ answer. I recall Scheer explaining that it isn’t that simple. While it may sound good, it’s not that straightforward or effective in practice. For example, consider the following scenario:
Immigration officer, interrogating a Syrian refugee: “Do you reject Sharia law and the teaching in the Qu’aran to not befriend an infidel and when the opportunity comes to behead them if they don’t submit to Allah?”
Syrian refugee (a devout Muslim, laughing to himself): “Yes, of course, I reject them! I’ll swear on a Bible.”
Immigration officer: “Congratulations you’re invited to immigrate to Canada.”
I think that Scheer’s proposal to have in place criteria as to who and how many immigrants Canada wants to let in has some merit and deserves consideration.
Anybody notice the advertising at the top of this post, “Immigrants should be screened for anti-Canadian values” from Kelly Leitch’s campaign?

Ezra I like how your bringing each conservative candidate onto your show. It helps give some insight to where they stand on the issues facing us today. To me your questions to Andrew Scheer should have been expected. The fact that Andrew won’t give you a clear answer to your question about vetting refugees is concerning. At least with Kellie Leach she gave you a straight answer and wasn’t tossing you some politically correct trash in order to avoid the question. Aren’t leaders supposed to be decisive? If he can’t decided how to answer you – how will he be able to make the quick decisions if there is an actual crisis that demands an immediate response? To me he doesn’t seem to be ready to lead the conservative party.

Impressive Scheer has a handful of kids. Maybe its going to take having the shite scared out of this generation to get them to start having Canadian babies like the baby boom after the war in the 50’s and 60’s.

I am tired of politicians just playing politician. If all you can do is hedge (A hedge is an investment position intended to offset potential losses or gains that may be incurred by a companion investment. In simple language, a hedge is used to reduce any substantial losses or gains suffered by an individual or an organization.) then you are just playing politics. Your presumption of my comment is not accurate Ron. I don’t want to block any person from any country from finding their way on their own to Canada because they want to enjoy and share in our freedoms. I do however object to thousands of people from Islamic countries being shovelled onto planes and dropped off in Canada, jumping the cue, and expecting Canadians to subsidize their lives here (guaranteed income, food, housing and medical). Bringing in thousands at a time is the same as open borders in Europe, whats the difference. The result will be the same. We can’t allow that many people from the same ideology which is the antithesis of ours, to tip our demographic, it’s cultural suicide.

Its time for a politician to stand up and put Canadians first. Prove to me that we don’t have the numbers for a decent workforce already. Not trained? So lets train them before we bring more people into the country under that excuse. Its not that I don’t like Muslims, its the toxic ideology of Islam we should be leery of. I don’t want our cities to look anymore like Dearborn Michigan than they already do. I agree with you Ron, that it is unlikely that a politician will stand up against Islam in this country. Kelly Leitch has come the closest so far. I agree with Ezra, I don’t think Scheer answered clearly. In fact the omissions in his answers were more telling than what he actually said.
commented 2016-11-05 17:21:19 -0400
LIZA, I presume that what you wanted to hear from Andrew Scheer is that he would, for example, declare that he would block the immigration to Canada of any Muslims. If so, it is not likely that you will hear Scheer or any other CPC leadership candidate take such a position. However, on the other hand, if you listened carefully to him explaining that we need to set forth criteria as to who or why we want to immigrate to Canada, that could well stem the flood of so-called Syrian ‘refugees’. Early days for these candidates; let’s not write them off that quickly.
commented 2016-11-05 17:01:39 -0400
Disheartening to hear Theresa May has demanded it go before Parliament for the final decision regardless of the results of the referendum. I wonder what retaliation will be dealt out by those people whose voices are being disregarded? There will be retaliation if the referendum is overturned in Parliament. Screw the European Union, if it were only trade issues being simplified that would be one thing, but they expect surrender and I hope Britain, and other countries will be able to extract themselves from the Marxist grip of the EU.

The court has no royal prerogative to over rule a democratic mandate from the lectorate – ignore the pompus globalist kangaroos – parliament should treat them with the same contempt they have for the vox poluli. Move ahead with re-nationalizing Britain and throw these EU donosaurs back to the Jurasic political bone heap

Centrist Libertarian says, “The left and the right do not compete with each other. They are 2 sides of the same coin.”
But Centrist, when you throw that coin in the air it lands divisively on one side OR the other.

How bout we, get people off the dole and train Canadians first. Then maybe a conversation on how to attract the sort of immigrant who has a chance of fitting into our social and cultural fabric. Until we make proper use of the work force which already exists in Canada, I don’t want to accept one more Syrian, or anyone from any Islamic country unless they come here as any immigrant would. Which means going through the hoops and wait periods just like anyone who has come here in the past. No more of this boat and plane loads of people. You come here, you get no preferential treatment. Andrew sounded like most politicians do, who think they know better for Canada than the people do.

I had been quite optimistic about Andrew Sheer, but after that interview he has lost me. He seemed to recognise that going the liberal lite route is a mistake but then vacillates on almost every question. He can’t have his bread buttered on both sides. He did not answer in a forthright manner the questions I need answered. The little he did reveal about immigration was not what I wanted to hear. Why do they all want to flood our country with people from Islamic third world countries? How does a country retain its first world status when its flooded by third world people? What is coming in is largely uneducated, unskilled and will be nothing but a drain. Thanks but no thanks.

Ezra, I think Scheer represented himself quite well for your first ‘introductory’ interview with him. In these early days in the campaign, I don’t think it was fair of you to say he was “wobbly on the some of the issues” and ducking tough questions, including your pet question about having a Canadian values test, not saying what you seemingly would like to hear. I think his argument that it was important to determine some criteria for our immigration policy, rather than pulling numbers out of the air, was logical and made sense.
I also think it was unfair of characterizing Brad Trost as strictly the social conservative candidate, a one-note conservative, as the left-wing media choose to do. Just as Scheer pitched himself as a “consistent authentic conservative across the board”, with a campaign slogan, “Real Conservative. Real Leader”, Brad Trost has presented himself much the same, as a genuine, principled conservative, with a campaign slogan 100% Conservative. A ‘progressive’ conservative party, progressive on social issues and conservative on financial issues is nothing less than a half-baked conservative party.
I appreciate that both of these candidates are espousing a commitment to conservative values and principles, which should be a foundational starting point. Otherwise, you end up with a so-called unprincipled ‘conservatives’ like Ontario’s PC leader Patrick Brown, who has declared, “I am determined to lead a PC Party that is modern, inclusive, pragmatic”. An example of pragmatism at work; speaking out of both sides of his mouth on Wynne’s sex-ed curriculum!
I would rather go down fighting, standing firmly on conservative principles and truth (such as man-made global warming being a sham and Islam not being ‘a religion of peace’), than go down with a whimper by bowing to pragmatism and political correctness and sacrificing those principles.

Ezra, I appreciate your criticism of Canada’s Supreme Court and how this tyranny of activist, unelected, unaccountable judges, has transformed and is corrupting Canada’s Parliamentary System of Government. An appropriate topic on the eve of Remembrance Day, honoring and remembering the many men and women who bravely fought for our freedom.
You point out that “In Canada, judges make the law”. Of the sitting Supreme Court justices, you asked “How many can you name?” I can name one, Audrey McLachlin, Chief Justice of Canada, sitting front and center in the photo you showed of the members of Canada’s Supreme Court. This judicial tyranny at play in Canada is not even hidden. McLachlin agrees with your assessment, having brazenly declared, “There is little point decrying the fact judges make law; they do and they must.” Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s first Supreme Court nominee, Malcolm Rowe who was sworn in officially Monday, as well, espouses a “judicial activism” that goes against Canada’s constitution. Rowe’s stated belief that the courts make laws rather than interpret them means that he fits in quite nicely with the current crop of activist justices headed by McLachlin. According to the Canadian parliamentary system, “The legislative branch is the law-making branch", contrary to McLachin’s imperious assertion. These justices should be required to take a basic civics class!

Centrist, if you are the poster boy for the libertarians, I’ll take a pass.
Any time someone claims that there is no more left and right I know he is a lefty. What has happened is that the left by skullduggery has infiltrated the conservatives so that they are indistinguishable. When a conservative will stand up and say what needs to be said and not back down and not be afraid to be called names then people will rise up and call them blessed. Kelly Leitch is closest to this so far but not far enough.

He suite was disingenuous. That the parliament must enact the change is actually obvious. The truckers can’t do it, the musicians can’t do it, the retail workers can’t do it. The referendum was stating the will of the ppl, and now the Gov is obligated to proceed, by any reasonable means. All politicians, whether for or against, is obligated to support such a motion because the decision was already made – by the ppl at the behest of the Gov.

So – no means test! Yes, it can be done, he just doesn’t want to! If a woman is wearing a niqab, they’re values don’t match!
