Freeland follows NAFTA failure with Liberal “crony” diplomatic appointment

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

After axe-murdering Canada's relationship with the U.S. by appearing on a panel that referred to President Trump as a tyrant, and mangling our NAFTA negotiations with feminist virtue signalling, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has a plan to fix the mess she's made with our neighbours to the south.

More diplomats! A Foreign Affairs press release ended up in my inbox today:

“The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today announced that the Government of Canada is enhancing its diplomatic outreach to the United States with the appointment of two new consuls general.”

One name stood out. “Zaib Shaikh becomes Consul General of Canada in Los Angeles (United States of America). Mr. Shaikh replaces James Villeneuve.”

Shaikh was the star of CBC’s Little Mosque on the Prairie. He has worked on other shows, but that's the one most Canadians will recognize him from because the unfunny, unwatchable sitcom was crammed down our throats by the state broadcaster for the better part of half a decade.

But Shaikh is a partisan liberal and a long time friend of Justin Trudeau.

Today you and I will do our best to get through a 2012 MacLeans article in which Shaikh gushed over Trudeau’s “humility” and “work ethic” and wherein Shaikh compared Trudeau’s charisma to that of Gandhi!

I wish I was kidding, but I’m not.

No wonder he got the job. Shaikh sent his interview version of a cover letter in to the Trudeau Liberals a long time ago.

“But Shaikh is a partisan liberal …”

C’mon. Large “L”, eh.

I’m “liberal”, they’re Liberal. There’s a world of difference.

“…but that’s the one most Canadians will recognize him from "

A CBC “comedy”? And you think “most” Canadians will recognize him because of that?

Now THAT’s funny!

More Consuls? Or more outlets for Islamic terrorism emanating from the emerging Northern Caliphate?

Trudeau, by endorsing and using members of the Muslim faith as Ambassadors and accepting them as MP’s shows his lack of intelligence and his lust for Canadian blood. He must be aware of Jihad, he must know that they intend to kill Christians……Yes, He knows and he will have a ring side seat when the blood begins to flow.

Trudeau, take note, what you dream of….‘You will never see’.

Having not watched the CBC since the late 80s . . . . I would not recognize Shaikh if he was dancing at the local Indian Restaurant . . . .
Have the low-intellect Canooks had enough of the destruction, embarrassment and lunacy of this gaggle of Lieberal loons yet? Or will they sign up for another 4 years?

If you added up all the brain power demonstrated by Justin , Gerald , Chrystia and Climate Barbie you wouldn’t have enough power to light a 1 watt led light bulb !

Foreign Affairs? Wasn’t it renamed Global Affairs the same day the portrait of Queen Elisabeth II was remove along with our flag from the lobby?

We should be happy it was only a government appointment. It could have been another $10.5 million payout.

But why is our government representation becoming more and more Muslim based, especially since this group is such a small part of our population? Can he speak French?

Well, he has “great” political expertise. Well, no. But since he comes from the CBC, he understands getting a government paycheque.

Let’s face it.. It’s not Chrystia Freeland making yet another bad choice… This appointment is Gerald Buttskie “doubling down” as Canada’s true Prime Minister…

Maurice, your diagnosis of Trudie is accurate!

This appointment is puke worthy!

Who will write this guy’s script?

Great reporting. I’m curious how many of the cities you mentioned are sanctuary cities? It seems that’s the places where Freeland would want to “support”.
commented 2018-10-12 20:02:13 -0400
The sight of Chrysta Freeland makes me want to cry, the words of Zaib Shaikh make me want to puke, and the words and sight of Justin Trudeau make me want to punch him in the face. That arrogant, self-absorbed, narcissistic piece of shit!!!

Stephen Harper has the charisma of an empty pizza box but he could out prime-minister Justin Trudeau with three quarters of his brain tied behind his back. Barefoot, through five miles of ass deep snow, and uphill in both directions. In his sleep.

Shaikh is either really good at being a disingenuous Boy Blunder butt kisser or he is psychotic.
