Justin won’t move Canada’s embassy to Jerusalem but what’s Andrew Scheer’s excuse?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Donald Trump broke every single rule of politics and media conventional wisdom to get elected. And now he’s doing the same as he governs.

The excuse, “you just can’t do that”, doesn’t work with Trump, and he’s proving it again by moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

Foreign affairs is made out to be so tricky, and complex, but sometimes, the simplest answer is the right one. So far, doing what’s right seems to be working as a few countries have begun to follow suit.

But even if no others followed suit — isn’t it the right thing for Canada to do too?

Obviously that’s not going to happen under Justin Trudeau. He isn’t going to follow Trump’s footsteps anywhere, but what about Andrew Scheer?

He says he supports Israel. His caucus does — most of them served under Stephen Harper who was praised as the most pro-Israel world leader.

So what’s up with the party of Harper, the party of pro-Israel? Where are they?

Well, here’s a troubling headline. "Conservatives won't say whether or not Jerusalem should be recognized as Israel's capital

Right now Scheer’s not saying he would move the embassy, nor is he saying he wouldn't. In fact, he’s not saying anything — he’s bravely leaving that to Foreign Affairs critic, Erin O’Toole.

But what if we had a petition asking conservatives to press Andrew Scheer to adopt the policy of moving the embassy to Israel?

He’s already broken campaign promises — on global warming, free speech on campus, and is silent on our open borders. I think he’s a cowardly lion, but I don’t think that’s the nature of the conservative party he leads.

If you agree that he should show some more spine, please sign our petition, at MoveTheEmbassy.ca

It just says: The Conservative Party should declare that it will move Canada’s Embassy to the capital city of Israel, Jerusalem.

I know why Hamas doesn’t like it, and why Justin Trudeau doesn’t like it but what’s Andrew Scheer’s excuse?

Visit MoveTheEmbassy.ca — and we’ll deliver the petition to his office before Christmas.

NEXT: Pamela Geller joins me to discuss a Quebec-based group's efforts to pressure Canada's federal government to deny her entry into the country for a scheduled December 18th event organized by the Jewish Defence League. 

THEN: Eric Duhaime joins me to discuss the story of a CEO whose home and car were attacked by eco-activists after his firm joined a Quebec oil project.

What’s Andrew Scheer’s excuse for not currently having a policy on moving Canada’s embassy to Jerusalem?

Answer: He’s a Liberal in Conservative clothing, and unofficially, he’s Trudeau’s Deputy Prime Minister and lap-dog.

Every single thing you mentioned below is the overblown myth. We can have all those things without selling our souls. It is all about one world order, you know that thing that used to be a conspiracy theory? Well it is right around the corner and it is designed to erase a countries sovereignty and autonomy.

The U.S. hasn’t been this prosperous in years and it is entirely due to Trump giving the finger to the global cabal. He will trade internationally just fine. Look at the deal he just came home with from China. The proof is in the pudding. I could go on but is there any point. The only barrier to trade is an inept leader, ask Justin.

I have relatives who have lived abroad in Europe and Asia for 30 years, tell me again why we need a global government for people to be able to live abroad?

Andrew, myths and lies all of it.
"

What is, and why do you think that?
My claims
1) Resouorce exports prosper in a globalized market. Ask the softwood exporters how they like the US tariffs.
2) Financial markets – this one is true. Our banks and insurance companies are globally well reputed..
3) Education – look at the composition of our universities. We’re very much a destination country for under and postgraduate education.
4) Expats – something like 10% of Canadians live outside Canada.
5) Which side of a trade barrier would YOU want to be on? The side with 7 billion customers, or the side with 0.03 billion customers?
6) Trump is a corporate mouthpiece – look at who is getting tax cuts.

NOTICE TO TROLLS….Justin did not win because of his charm…he won because of Tom Mulchair’s complete lack of it.

The NDP was in slam dunk position just weeks before the election.

It was Tom Mulchair’s hard line against the burka ban in Quebec that sunk him in an abrupt swing to the all but dead liberals in Quebec…who actually agreed with Mulchair…but just kept their mouths shut.

Quebec is the key…..and it is not….A POST NATIONAL STATE…..:-)

Turning to the globalist left is absolutely a bad thing.
It is certain suicide for any country. Look at the EU.
Globalism is corporate world government.
It is not some socialist utopia where we have no borders and everyone holds hands and sings ‘here we are together’. "

Yet all we hear about is how Canada needs to build pipelines and generally support the resource sector, to export resources to the global markets. That’s something that very much benefits from globalization, isn’t it? What about our world-class financial sector? The fact that we’re one of the biggest educational destinations on Earth, or the global demand for Canadian talent which has lead to one of the biggest global expat professional diasporas of any country? The solution isn’t to close the borders, especially in a market as small as Canada. It’s to excel at things economically. Any company that actually wants to grow has to do so globally. You don’t want to be on the wrong side of a trade barrier.

Trade barriers don’t render a government any less corporatist. Look at Trump. Not what he says he’s doing, but what he’s actually doing (and we’re not talking about distractions like the Wall). He’s a corporate pawn. They all are.

Al Peterson,

Canada was never as churchy as America or puritanical. Again, Canada has been more European in our views.

Now of course there are parts of Canada just like there are now ala Alberta that are more conservative and in keeping with American views, but as a whole – Canada has always been more progressive than America and I mean beyond 50 years, but even if it was just 50 years, that is within the lifetime of all of us here. Most were not alive before that, so it really doesn’t matter as you can’t wish for a time that you were not alive in.

Andrew Stephenson said Canada is turning to the globalist left and nothing will change that.
Well, if Visegrad, USA, and other countries can turn to the right, why can’t Canada?
-————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
Billy , it definitely can but here is a tactic of the left that you will see repeated over and over. When they want something to change they come off all touchy-feely and go on about how we need reasoned discussion. When they get what they a want they suddenly become intractable and declare that “the issue a has already been decided”.

The best example of this is the abortion debate. Once the addle-headed SOC tossed the proposed law back in the 80’s the left loudly and shrilly proclaims that the SOC decided the issue. They did not. They simply stated that that particular law was unconstitutional in their warped judgement. But that never stops a lefty.

This is why we need a true right wing party with a leader who has a thick enough hide to educate Canadians about the truth in spite of the leftist name calling. I firmly believe that if a strong leader would pound the truth incessantly that people would come around and realize how much sweet, sweet soma they have consumed. Canadians would buy in. Leftists know this and it scares them. That’s why they so desperately try to control the narrative. It is also why they try to shut down The Rebel. The Rebel is a chink in the leftist hegemony in Canada and it threatens them.

Care to define how long “always” has been. The US was more liberal than Canada for a very long time. But the lib-left thought they could out do the Yanks at their own game in the 60’s especially when Quebec abandoned the church for secularism. That has only been true for about 50 years or so.

The reality is that the grumpy nostalgia for the 60s isn’t really a politically viable strategy.
-————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

That’s a bad call on your part, Andrew. That nostalgia for the 60’s (grumpy or otherwise) is what got the Trudeau II voted in just like Trudeau I. The promise of legalized pot and free bongs for all is a throwback to the 60’s. As is promising the government (which has no money) will give everyone lots of free stuff. That’s what got Trudeau II elected. It’s hard to compete against a pot smoking Santa Claus among the infantile sheeple. The juicy vote pools lie among urban gen X/Y/Z, who are mostly very optimistic about Canada, comfortable with multiculturalism, globally aware, and politically engaged by leaders that understand their experience. Telling them that Canada’s going to hell in a handbasket because.. .Muslims etc… isn’t going to work, because that’s not the Canada they see.


Yeah, so they are wrong and they are wrong because they are self-deluded and they are self-deluded because they were suckled by the CBC and most of the MSM. Boy are they in for a rude shock when their smarmy “virtual” reality ends and real reality sets in. The look on their faces will be priceless.

Scheer is trying to address the fact that his path to victory is the 40 year old suburbanite who is concerned mostly about job opportunities and taxes, maybe about getting better GO train service, who doesn’t give a fig about guns, and not only isn’t afraid of Muslims, but might actually be one.

Partly right, again. This is why the Liberals are importing the death cult in wholesale lots. Because they are the undocumented Liberals for the future elections. We are indeed becoming a nation of pathetic, limp-wristed, self-absorbed urbo-weenies.

Canada has always been to the left of America.

In fact, Canada has always been more European (progressive/forward thinking/not puritanical/embrace science) if anything, so it doesn’t make sense when conservatives here long for the return of conservatism in Canada, which never actually existed in the way that you are hoping for now.

Even Harper would be considered Liberal in America by comparison to politicians in the south for example.
