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.

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 – causing no end of suffering and misery in the name of delivering them from evil.

The official marxist atheism oversaw the murder of hundreds of millions of people. That is the legacy of having no authority higher than ourselves.

I’m sorry you suffered at the hands of false Christians. That was not my experience of church. Jesus had no good words for those who abuse and mislead children:

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Matthew 18:6

As my grandfather used to say. We will be surprised by two things in heaven- those who are there and those who aren’t.

I hope you find peace from what you went through. Live your life as a choice based on the evidence not as a reaction to the evil that false teachers dumped on you. Don’t reject the Prince of Peace because of those who misrepresented him to advance their own evil causes.
commented 2018-08-30 17:52:03 -0400
And then all those priests and nuns can take your money and use it on their defense fund for when they go to court on charges of molesting children.
Quite probably. But then I don’t attend a Catholic church with its hiearchy. Evil has been done in evangelical churches as well. A friend of mine suffered abuse as a kid- I gather from your other comments-much like what you did. He saw that these people were fakes and did not represent the real Jesus and so he held on to the Jesus that scripture showed. His faith is strong and he and his wife take care of many foster kids because he knows what they need.

We need to purge our country from any references to christianity. Take it out of the schools, the national anthem and get the crosses off the hospitals. The less christ there is, then the less people will use the bible on others as a form of social control.

I’m not sure Christianity has much social control any more. But let me ask, Of all the countries in the world, which ones are the best to live in? I think you will have to admit it is the ones that came out of a Christian background. The best are those that came out of the Reformation. None were ever perfect. Lots of evil has been done in the name of Christ. But that does not disprove what Jesus said. It proves him to be correct: we are sinners saved by grace- not our good deeds.

“All have sinned and come short of the glory of God”.

“There is none righteous not even one.”

“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”.

“The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick;
Who can understand it?"
So we need a saviour since we have nothing in us that can achieve peace on our own. “For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:6-8

It is incredible how you people here will stop at nothing to bash Islam. But somehow, christianity is off limits. Whatever happened to the conservative value of free speech? Or does it not apply when it comes to your own sacred cows.
Christianity is not off limits as your post shows. But trying to portray moral equivalence between Christianity and islam is a joke.

Do you believe that some con artist claiming to be the son of god is going to save your sinning soul from damnation?
More drive by attacks like the leftists trot out. How is he a “con artist”?

If- and note I say , IF- (it is a conditional sentence)- what Jesus claimed is true then he is the one one who can save us. (History shows we have done a poor job of it ourselves.)
As God, Jesus is a sufficient substitutionary sacrifice. He is adequate to take away sin. As a human he is suitable substitutionary sacrifice- he is one of us and shares our nature so he can die in our place.

I bet if you tithe some money to the church, then you will certainly go to heaven.

Nope. Salvation is NOT a matter of doing good deeds since- as you have experienced-
“For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.” Isaiah 64:6

Salvation comes by faith in the finished work of Jesus on the cross:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Ephesians 2:8&9

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

BILLIONS MORE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS WASTED, MILLIONS OF JOBS LOST AND THE CONTINUED IMPORTATION OF FOREIGN OIL- ESPECIALLY ISLAMIC OIL . trudeau has NO INTEREST IN CANADA OR CANADIANS OTHER THAN OUR MONEY TO FILL HIS COFFERS/BANK ACCOUNTS AND TO PROVIDE FOR HIS COVETED ISLAMIC VOTERS.

I call BS on Baby Doc Trudeau. No money for our veterans, yet he found $2 billion for third world countries to fight “climate change”, $45 million for the Clinton Foundation, $640 million for abortions in other countries, $2 million for repairs to a hospital in Afghanistan, countless millions for illegal aliens and pseudo-Syrian refugees, $15 million for infrastructure in a south Asian country that the very next week publicly whipped a woman, millions to the billionaire Aga Kahn, and to top it off he gave $41 million to Afghanistan for Afghani veterans. But he can not find funds for our veterans, better pay for our military, sleeping bags for our military, or equipment for our military.

The Liberal Party and Trudeau relied heavily on the DNC and Clinton campaign operatives for strategic advise before the federal election.
It is reasonable to assert that much of Trudeau’s bravado and arrogance aimed at Trump is coming from the Democrats and their resistance movement.

As much as I would like to see Justin (the Socialist Twit) Trudeau & the Communist Ukranian Freeland get “dressed-down” by the Trump Team, for their incompetence & lack of any common-sense real World business experience, I personally feel that Donald J. Trump sees thru this BS & will not allow Canadians to suffer economically for O’Bama & Hillary & Soros meddling in Canada’s last Election.

Mr. Trump is a highly respected businessman World Wide ( not by Democrats & Liberals, but who really cares what they say anyway) & he really cares about not only his own Country, but the success of other Countries also.

Therefor, I now feel that Unless Trudeau & Freeland really do something to really piss-off Trump, there will be an outcome that Canada will not lose ALL 160,000 auto jobs in ON & the accompanying recession will be avoided.

I am rarely wrong in my predictions, as you can usually predict what a mature adult will do, but we are dealing with incompetent, spoiled children here, so all bets are off!
