Trump tried to phone Trudeau on Monday — but Trudeau refused to take the call.

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Monday, Donald Trump revealed that he had negotiated a very detailed bilateral trade agreement with Mexico. "Bilateral" just means two sides — the U.S. and Mexico. As in: Canada’s not part of it.

Well, Trump wanted to talk to Trudeau about it. And Trudeau refused to take the call.

Of course, I only learned about that from the foreign press — our own CBC would never report something so embarrassing, or so revealing, about our dear leader.

Trudeau’s official schedule from Monday is just marked: "Private Time." (Of course, he’s had more than 20 vacation days so far in 2018, on top of regular weekends and statutory holidays.)

And this morning, "diplomat of the year" Chrystia Freeland was invited for a meeting with the U.S. Trade Representative. And Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and the consummate Trump "fixer," was there too.

And here’s how that went:

Jared Kushner just walked in for the meeting with Canada. The Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs is not here. She is late. #NAFTA

She flew in yesterday. Did she get lost? Did she hit the snooze button?

Was this not the most important meeting in her life? And for the lives of 160,000 people working in Ontario's auto industry?

No notice, no warning, no courtesy, no diplomacy, no explanation. We’re just not showing up.

Do you think Donald Trump means it when he says he wants to put on tariffs on our auto industry?

I do. I think Trump wants a trade war, to relocate those factories to the U.S.

The crazy thing is, Trudeau is behaving like he wants a trade war, too.

Justin Trudeau already killed of Canada’ oil and gas and pipeline industry, with the help of Rachel Notley. Now he’s going for Ontario’s auto industry.

Unless something changes in the next 48 hours, I think we’re heading into a deep recession in this country, courtesy of our diplomat of the year, and her man-child boss.

NEXT: Broadcaster Michael Knowles talks about the Catholic Church scandal, and "what the Pope knew."

THEN: Regular guest T. Lee Humphrey is seeking the CPC nomination for the riding of Calgary Centre. He comes on to talk about a story Sheila Gunn Reid reported yesterday, of the cop killer whose PTSD (which he got after shooting the police officer!) is being treated thanks to funding from Veterans' Affairs.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

We all know Trudeau is stupid.
We all know he assaults women in the Commons.
And now it is obvious he is just a rude hillbilly.

When a man stops believing in God he doesn’t then believe in nothing, he believes anything.

Amy clearly needs to sign up for Premium membership, or shut up.
But, Liza, you have to enjoy the hubris of someone who has not watched the video but then states categorically that Ezra did not give evidence for what he headlined. Then asks sone else to feed her the missing info that she based her comments on. Like her pash, The Tater Tot, she will not be embarrassed by this. Won’t miss a beat.

Canada is making a name for itself alright and it is a horrendously bad one. Freeland is talking about good jobs, but clearly not for Canadians.
commented 2018-08-31 14:57:42 -0400
I am just so disgusted and amazed at what Trudeau’s cabal are attempting. Big trouble ahead. Freeland is even more evil than I first imagined. She is a very nasty piece of work hiding behind a cloak of false concern and piety. These are scary and dangerous people we will be dealing with here, and they will stop at nothing. We had better commit to an equally determined stance against this, ‘multi lateral, rules based international order’ Freeland keeps harping about like some kind of Mother Theresa or female Ghandi. Trust that beach at the peril of us all. I fear, pap educated millennial’s and brain cell deficient old stoners will be duped by her wrong think.

Space Moose, Islam is not a western ‘religion’ and should not be our problem. Its about as simple as that. If however you want to get into it , Islam is supposed to be taken as it is written, and ‘good’ Muslims do so. To do so, is anti western, therefore, not only inferior to Christianity on our soil, but the values on which our country was built. Islam never should have become our problem. There are many very real reasons not to accept it. It won’t play by our rules in our own country, and if it can’t, will never be accepted as other religions have been in the west.

Who wants to have to defend the religion’s of their own country against an anti western religion that has come in? We shouldn’t have to. Not being a western religion is not the issue so much as being an anti western religion. Islam is anti western. Islam is an invasion. It is normal that we push against Islam and try to protect Christianity and the other religions which live in harmony in Canada. It is not normal to elevate Islam in Canada. It is anti Canadian and anti western.

Space Moose screw your purge of our founding religion. People are supposed to be able to have religious rights equally in this country. Only problem is, Islam wants to rule. You want to complain, complain about that.

Both christians and Muslims use the same excuse whenever one of their own does something bad. They say that they are nota real christian or a real Muslim.
That may or may not be but to be a Christian one must repent, confess their sins and ask for forgiveness. Muslims only have to declare Allah as the greatest and to declare themselves to be his follower. So being a real muslim requires basically nothing. To be a Christian is to admit one’s sins and that they need help to be what God intended them to be.

The Christian depends on Christ living in them through the Holy Spirit to make changes in their affection and desires and actions. The muslim relies on their own efforts to do what they are told.

For the Christian good works are not a means of salvation but an expression of love for God. We do lousy job of it. But then we are sinners. People are not sinners because they sin. They sin because they are sinners. Without admitting that and thinking we are capable of doing good by your own thoughts and deeds brings us the result of atheism wherever it had been forced on people.

But then again, you equate not beinga christian with being a marxist.
Not necessarily. Not all non-Christians are Marxists (obviously) but no marxists are Christians. And history shows the results of official Marxism and atheism wherever it has been tried. Cambodia, Soviet Union, China, Poland, Romania, NorBulgaria, East Germany,th Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cuba, Angola, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Albania, Congo. Somalia, Mozambique, Eritrea, Congo, Benin.

“Peter Hitchens is the ex-atheist brother of atheist Christopher Hitchens. In an article entitled Britain needs God Creation Ministries International wrote about Peter Hitchens:

“ Peter wrote that his views changed slowly, as he came to see the fruit of atheism. Part of this realisation came when he was working as a journalist in Moscow, during the final years of the Soviet Union. His depiction of this godless society was sobering. He wrote of the riots that broke out when the vodka ration was cancelled one week; the bribes required to obtain anaesthetics at the dentist or antibiotics at the hospital; the frightening levels of divorce and abortion; the mistrust and surveillance; the unending official lies, manipulation and oppression; the squalor, desperation and harsh incivility. Peter wrote of how traffic stops dead in Moscow when rain begins to fall, as every driver fetches wind-screen wipers from their hiding places and quickly fits them to their holders. Any wipers left in place when the car is parked are stolen as a matter of course.
The atheist, humanistic ideology of the state, he believed, had even affected the Russian language. Peter spoke to a descendant of an exile, whose grandparents had fled Moscow in the days of Lenin. Having been brought up to speak pure Russian in his American home—the elegant, literary language of his parents—he was shocked when he visited Russia to hear the coarse, ugly, slang-infested and bureaucratic tongue that was now spoken, even by educated professionals.45"

According to R. J. Rummel’s book Death by Government (1994), about 110 million people, foreign and domestic, were killed[how?] by Communist democide from 1900 to 1987.29

Is that what you really want? Because history proves that is what you will get. You have a right to be angry at those who mistreated you but to blame it on Jesus is not really rational. He’s the one who died for you.

Flatearth…sorry, what’s your name? Your comment is on page 2 and I don’t have access to it right now!
You agree with Ron Shea because you’re Protestant.
Protestants listen to one minister, one interpretation of the Bible, then go and listen to another minister, another interpretation of the Bible, etc. etc. etc.
Anyone can start their own denomination and every single one of them has their own interpretation of the Bible.
Tell us, which one is right?

Ron Shea did not know Catholicism. I can tell just by his answer. He thought he did, but he didn’t. Most people who leave the Church usually don’t know what Catholicism really is or what it is all about and have the very same response/argument that Ron Shea. I know, been there, did that.

The Suffering Servant

1 Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot,
And like a root out of parched ground;
He has no stately form or majesty
That we should look upon Him,
Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.
3 He was despised and forsaken of men,


And like one from whom men hide their face
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.


Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He did not open His mouth;
Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,
And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
So He did not open His mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment He was taken away;
And as for His generation, who considered
That He was cut off out of the land of the living
For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
9 His grave was assigned with wicked men,
Yet He was with a rich man in His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
10 But the Lord was pleased
To crush Him, putting Him to grief;
If He would render Himself as a guilt offering,
He will see His offspring,
He will prolong His days,
And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
11 As a result of the anguish of His soul,
He will see it and be satisfied;
By His knowledge the Righteous One,
My Servant, will justify the many,
As He will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great,
And He will divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out Himself to death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,
And interceded for the transgressors.

Isaiah 53

Spare me the jesus reason for banning abortion. Let homosexuals get married.
Yes, when one abandons the ultimate truth then anything goes. God does not force us to walk with him. But then one should not complain when things go from bad to worse.

Above all, lets take the delusion of needing to believe in god out of us.
You are speaking like a marxist. The socialists tried (unsuccessfully) to force religion out the world. I taught for a couple of years in the Former Soviet Union and saw first hand how well that worked out. I met a family that spent 10 years in Siberia for no other crime than being Christians. The “New Soviet Man” looked pretty much like people everywhere that reject God
