Trudeau's India trip “a disaster” — but only foreign media tells you why

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Justin Trudeau is on vacation again. On your dime, again.

This time, it’s a luxury family vacation to India. 

Did you see them posing at the Taj Mahal? You almost never see the Taj Mahal empty like that, but to accommodate Trudeau’s vanity photo shoot, 35,000 pilgrims and tourists, some of whom had surely planned their visit for a long time, had to wait more than an hour, in 90-degree heat, while Justin and princess Sophie did their modelling.

They even brought all sorts of costumes. It’s weird, don’t you think? To treat India as some sort of curiosity?

But while that stuff works wonders on the Canadian media, it's going over like a lead balloon in India itself:

"Reports have suggested that the Indian government is unhappy with Canada’s soft stance on Sikh radicals, who have increased pro-Khalitsan activities in recent years.”

India is also upset with Trudeau’s chumminess with radical Islam, given India’s rivalry with Muslim Pakistan.

It's not just the Indian media, either, as I'll show you tonight.

But Canada's Media Party is pretending this is fine, that our "soft on terrorism" policies are starting to worry our allies. That we are not taken seriously in the world.

We have a Trudeau problem.

But we have a media problem too...

NEXT: To discuss this further, I'm joined by conservative activist and founder of Alberta Can't Wait, Prem Singh.

THEN: David Millard Haskell, Associate Professor of Religion and Culture at Wilfrid Laurier University, comes on to talk about his provocative Vancouver Sun op-ed, "Criticism of religious groups is good for religion."

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

This trip was all about Trudeau getting out of town for a while, so the news cycle could change, taking the focus off his stupid performance since January. He has not been able to open his mouth without sticking both feet in. Nothing is going to happen with NAFTA until Amazon decides to stay in the US, forgetting Toronto, and Trump decides its time. And then a new chapter in our cartoon PM will begin all over.

Yup, Canada’s rock stars.

“And NOW! Live from Taj MAHAL! It’s J.T. and the Turdettes!!!!!!

Probabaly 1/6 of Canadian voters are so called New Canadians, 1/6 are young voters who have no clue as to what is really going on in the world but they liked the idea of legalized pot and the balance are just stupid.

Wherever he goes and whatever he dies it’s all about globalization and the United Nations agenda to destroy nation states.

I wonder if going to India at the same time the Aga Khan is nothing more than to reinforce his narritive that they’re family friends, all the while finding a loop hole in the system so that he can’t get in trouble with the ethics commissioner. After all, he’s on Canadian a “delegation” with his family, not vacation.

I’m not surprised to read The Clown Prince Trudeau struck out again. It’s follows a pattern and after all failure is what he does best.

As for the “vacation” I do hope he enjoys these little outings because the voters are fed up with picking up the tab.

Roy Jeanine commented…

" In 3 weeks, this despicable Trudope flew from Ottawack to Davos, back to Ottawack, then to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Nanaimo bc., back to Ottawack, 4 days to US, and now 8 days to India. At a cost of $ 36,000 per hour to use our government plane, pilots, rcmp and security detail, limousines, full entourage including butts, meals, booze, hotels, photographers, this sub-human is costing millions and millions and he’s accomplishing absolutely nothing. Like a comment said “let them eat cake”. There is just no stopping this total abuse. "

If I were Prime Minister of Canada, I would be in Ottawa at work 15 hours a day everyday getting this country back on track, among other things cleaning up the financial and political mess Little Boy Blue is leaving in his wake. That alone will take minimum 10 years, but more likely 20 (just like his father).

This means no non-essential foreign trips, and no Obama-style Townhall nonsense. No special interest groups, no entourage or hanger-ons, and no groupies or childish selfies needless to say. Being Prime Minister of Canada is a serious job for serious people with a deep understanding of the country and the world.

We need to get this country back on its feet and start reconnecting Canada to its true historical heritage and identity.

Disaster describes everything he does and what he is turning Canada into.

Correction to my last comment: It should have read, “it later turned out that $750 million was staying in India and $250 million is coming to Canada”. My apology for the mistake. However, the CBC’s tidbit of info on the amount being equivalent to 3 hours of cross-border Canada-U.S. trade is the same. So maybe in a sense it will be worth the cost of Small Potatoes’ holiday junket to India. Then again, forget that: the deals were undoubtedly already done before he ever got on the plane with his family to live it up on our dime, so I guess we’re just getting hosed again like we were when they went to the Aga Khan’s private Island in secret on our dime also, to the tune I believe of about $250,000.

No big surprise. Trudeau has been a disaster since day one… When the hell is everyone going to wake up… He is destroying Canada… Will take decades to get any respect again from foreign countries. If ever , again.
Trudeau makes us the laughing stock world wide… NO JOKE! WAKE UP CANADA!

Small Potatoes (China’s name for Justin Trudeau) does seem to have a problem separating his own personal pleasure and that of his family from the state business of the nation of Canada. It really is embarrassing watching him and his family holidaying around India in their traditional dress while he pretends to be on a state business trip. Today he claimed $1 billion of Indian investment money was coming to Canada as a result of his trip; it later turned out that $750,000 was staying in India and $250,000 is coming to Canada (That’s the grasp Small Potatoes has of the details of his Big Deals) IF the deals don’t fall through. That is the amount of trade that crosses the U.S.-Canadian border in 3 hours according to the CBC, which amazingly provided that tidbit of info. For this we spent how much so Small Potatoes and his family could vacation on the taxpayers dime in India? I’d like to know and I’ll bet a lot of other Canadians would also. Whataya suppose the chances are the MSM will ferret that tidbit of info out for us anytime soon? Not great, I’d say.

The talking head said, “You can always ask him when he gets back…” Yeah, about that. Justin has a habit of trotting out one of his 3 rehearsed all occasion answers no matter what the question.

Apparently our two self absorbed nincompoops think that India is a theme park where you go to dress up and play pretend you’re a swami or something. What an embarrassment. I love it when foreign media and governments give him the cold shoulder. Unfortunately he’s too narcissistic to realize what is happening. You’d think he would have learned something from the China episode. But no. Since our left wing media is always so enthralled about what the rest of the world thinks of us we may get lucky and have our state funded fifth column bite the hand that feeds them.

Justin Trudeau has never stopped living this childhood. It continues apace. Without a doubt he is the stupidest world leader in history.

Lee Horsman commented…

I’d love to be a fly on the wall if Trudeau happened to cross paths with Sonia Gandhi while he’s in India. Mrs. Gandhi, who no doubt has already forgotten more about politics than Justin will ever know, is uniquely qualified to shed some light on our Prime Minister’s ridiculous misconceptions about the similarities among Italian immigrants, refugees, and returning “terrorism tourists.”

- + + + + +

Quite right. And the irony of course is that Sonia Gandhi is herself an Italian immigrant to India. But Little Boy Blue wouldn’t know such details.

The CBC and Trudeau are the same PC entity. There was more criticism of the USSR from Pravda than there is of the CBC on Trudeau. CBC is state run news fawning over every move of our Peter Pan drama queen.

Most of the Canadian Media stink to high heaven. You don’t hear a word of this on the radio or on TV, they all play dead when it comes to criticizing Trudeau & we all know there’s plenty of criticism to go around over & over again, but they’re all silent like church mice.
Must be nice to be a multi millionaire, yet get all of your many exotic trips paid for by the taxpayer. This is so infuriating, SHAME on Trudeau. The fact he’s not even there to do real business is even more infuriating. One could go on & on about this elitist family. If he wants to relive his childhood, fine, pay for it himself or stay home & do his job. Trudeau has spent more time running around the globe than he has spent inthe House Of Commons. Even when in Canada, he drags his feet. Makes me want to spit. You almost have to be lamebrained to have voted for this person, who still acts like a child.

Oh my gosh… What an embarrassment Justin Trudeau is to Canada and Canadians. Even his father Pierre, in his most outrageous moments (e.g. pirouetting behind the Queen), would blush at Justin’s antics in India. Talk about mega-embarrassing cultural appropriation in the worst possible circumstance, an official Prime Ministerial visit to a foreign country! Did Trudeau actually think that this cloying series of imitations of the Indian culture by a foreign PRIME MINISTER would ingratiate him, or Canada, to the people or government of India? Doesn’t he realize they are an ancient people that takes their culture seriously, and not as a series of props for the amusement of foreigner ‘dignitaries’ who profess no culture of their own, having disrespected their own founding cultures to the point of no longer even acknowledging them? How pathetic it must seem to the people and government of India that Trudeau would show up not in dress that is distinctively Canadian, or even in neutral international business attire as would befit a Prime Minister, but rather in THEIR traditional dress instead?

This, coming on the heels of Trudeau’s international ‘peoplekind’ embarrassment, surely must have made Canada the butt of derisive jokes from pole to pole and meridian to meridian around the world. I seriously don’t know if Canada as a country will ever live down this episode. We are now the comic relief of the planet, fit not for a seat at the UN security council, but rather as the headline act at a comedy club down the street.

To save Canada from any more international and domestic embarrassment, Trudeau should resign immediately and call an election, so Canadians can rid ourselves of this sick joke of a government. We have real problems that need dealing with, the biggest one being this Peter Pan Prime Minister and his liberal fascist government that wants to censor our freedom to speak and criticize, and we don’t need to add being the butt of the world’s jokes to the list of such problems that require the attention of a serious Prime Minister and government. We can only hope that Justin Trudeau will realize that he is not fit or qualified to be the Prime Minister of Canada, that he doesn’t know what he is doing and how he is embarrassing Canada and Canadians, and not acting in our best interests, and that he will do the right thing and resign immediately.

“I think we are going to really pay for it in ways we can’t imagine” – Dr. Jordan Peterson on Justin Trudeau.

Mr. Levant deserves credit for allowing Peterson a venue of expression at a time when many forces, including Peterson’s employer, The University of Toronto, were attempting to silence and ostracize him. And credit also to Levant for organizing a funding campaign – and especially to those Rebel viewers who dug into their jeans for research most of us don’t really understand. I am certain Peterson felt revitalized,as he has been on a roll and looks much better now those dark days are behind him.

A most interesting two hour discussion between Dr. Haskell and Peterson exists online. Sadly, it reveals the rot that exists in too many post secondary institutions. Levant refers to it as an infection – I think it it is much worse. It caused me to investigate the University of Alberta science faculty I graduated from. I was astonished. My modest annual contribution has been redirected to another institution – they boast that within six months of graduation, over 92% of their graduates find full time employment in their field of study. That’s the kind of performance society needs. I support Professor Haskell’s call for people to scrutinize our institutions more. I wish I had done so much earlier.

Yes, why use a backdrop when you can cause inconvenience to thousands of people to use something that looks like a backdrop. Trudeau is a celebrity, not a leader. What job do you get to drag your spouse and kids around on business trips? Why are behaviors we would find unacceptable for employees or business partners considered just fine for politicians who are supposed to work for us?
