Kenney's “bizarre” immigration announcement is “a solution in search of a problem”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Jason Kenney is going to be the next premier of Alberta.

Any poll, every poll, for months, has shown that it’s going to be a majority government for Kenney’s new United Conservatives Party.

The NDP win in 2015 was accidental — the other parties all imploded, and Rachel Notley had a pleasant enough smile.

Abacus research confirmed at the time what we all know: 91 per cent of people who voted for the NDP said they just wanted a change. Trouble is, they voted for kooks, and in some cases, actual Communists.

So Jason Kenney could go on holidays until the election day and still win. In fact, it would probably be better if he did, since the campaign will be nothing but gotcha smears against him by the media party.

But Kenney and his team have been colonized, psychologically, by the Media Party. I think it’s something he learned in a decade in Ottawa: To fear and appease them.

I first saw this two years ago, when he turned against 3,000 Albertans who were campaigning at a Rebel rally outside the Legislature, against the carbon tax.

And he did it again, with that United We Roll Convoy:

Andrew Scheer and Maxime Bernier both spoke at the convoy rally in Ottawa. Ontario premier Doug Ford and Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe sent out encouraging messages. But Kenney wouldn’t even meet with the convoy as it passed through his own city, and his only tweet to them scolded them for talking about other issues besides pipelines, like Trudeau’s corruption or mass immigration.

All of the above is the only way I can process the bizarre Kenney announcement today.

If you were to knock on 1,000 doors in Alberta and ask, "What is a key issue in this provincial election, I doubt a single person would say: "We need more immigration."

Now here's an excerpt from the CBC report:

"Our goal is to end large backlogs, speed up processing, proactively attract talented newcomers from overseas, welcome entrepreneurs, and encourage settlement in rural Alberta," the UCP leader said on Monday in Chestermere, Alta.

Kenney said the UCP plan would aim to bring approximately 10,000 newcomers in total to rural Alberta every year.

Kenney, who served as federal immigration minister from 2008 to 2013, said the plan is meant to address population decline in rural Alberta and reinvigorate the provincial economy. (...)

"My goal would be to get a larger share of the federally selected immigrants by getting our economy back to work," said Kenney.

Where to begin? Immigration is a federal matter. It’s not a provincial matter, other than some tweaks.

But the main point is this:

There is massive unemployment in Alberta. It’s worse than any other province other than the Atlantic.

And Alberta’s unemployed people are the most skilled unemployed people in Canada. They’re out of work because of Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau. There is no shortage of workers. There is a shortage of jobs.

So Jason Kenney wants to bring in more workers? Before our existing Canadian unemployed are hired?

This is a solution in search of a problem. It doesn’t make sense.

This is Jason Kenney trying to win the love of the CBC, trying to prove how woke he is.

Please tell me if I’m wrong, because I wish I was, but I don’t think I am.

NEXT: Elizabeth Pipko was a successful professional model. But when she started volunteering for Donald Trump's campaign, she says she felt pressured to keep that a secret from others in her industry.

Pipko recently broke her silence, and tonight she joins me to talk about her experiences as a Trump supporter in the "progressive" world of modelling.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

I guess we don’t have such a clause in our constitution.
“Its not the governments choice”
Boy do I like the sound of those words, Ron.

CAROLE MASSE——-Switzerland is governed by Referendum and it works well.
“In Switzerland Swiss voters can demand a binding referendum at federal, cantonal, and municipal level. They are a central feature of Swiss political life. It is not the government’s choice whether or when a referendum is held, but it is a legal procedure regulated by the Swiss constitution. There are two types of referendums: "

Here is their Refugee Plan, very unique as they have no problem with terrorism.

Very very entertaining Keith.

Liza, will we get to comment on Notley’s advertisements, it could prove to be entertaining.

I would love to see Elizabeth Pipko run against Democrats like AOC, Mad Maxine Waters, or Feinkinstein

Rachel Notley’s NDP — who are prosecuting us for our “illegal” journalism — just made a massive ad buy on our channel.

They actually think they can persuade our viewers to vote socialist.

I’ll take their money.

And do I ever have a surprise for them.

Tick tock.

What is Alberta supposed to do when both viable choices stink of the same rot?

It sure would be cheaper Carole. At this point any referendum would be counter to the UN Compact they signed, and are clearly already implementing(so much for non binding). They would never allow referendums. The people of Canada no longer have any representation. We will be directed, not considered in any way.
Never submit. There is no peace in submission. Let them attempt subjugation and see how well it works.
commented 2019-02-26 13:29:14 -0500
It would be certainly less expansive than to send billions to other “poor” countries, as globalists are committed to. They don’t agree, then a revolution is the only option left. But since we are not hungry enough in Canada yet, then we’ll have to wait. We have no peaceful future here, unless we submit.

Ezra has tweeted that Notley has just bought advertising on the Rebel. She thinks she smells blood in the water. She is wrong, couldn’t be more wrong. No one is going to give that hag their vote.

It would bring direct democracy Carole. That’s why they won’t let us have them. Anytime its brought up, they say no , its too expensive and other ridiculous excuses. Referendums would be the best thing, at least until the demographic is completely tipped. That’s when they will let them happen.
commented 2019-02-26 13:06:20 -0500
Canadians should start demanding the RIC like the French. A Referendum of all citizens that could be triggered by a certain number of people, let’s say 50,000, on any proposed law, gov’t decision on immigration, spending, whatever issue the citizens bring up, even on firing the current gov’t if they don’t do what they are supposed to. That would be direct democracy by the people and for the people. We need to take back control of our institutions, that we pay for, be able to get rid of corrupt globalist politicians before they do irreversible harm between elections, and counteract the globalists constant demolition of our rights and freedom. Over is the time when our only effort is to drive to a polling station every 4 years and check a box.

Charred, that’s exactly what I’m saying, Alberta has to get rid of Kenney before Separation. (The closest snake)
Last of all, it is obvious Ezra isn’t a Kenney fan. Why not write him or Sheila to make up Derek Lawn signs or has someone thought of that. You seem to be close to the Derek campaign.

The thought of unifying Canada was a utopian pipe dream… What we should be thinking about now is how fast we can dislodge our self from central Canada before the demographic tips beyond anything we can recover from .!
Charred, although I like what you suggested, leaving Central Canada, you will still have Kenney.
To use the analogy, Alberta has 2 Rattlesnakes ready to pounce , Central Canada although dangerous is farther away than the closest snake which is Kenney. He will kill Alberta before you can get Central Canada.

Our politicians dont give a damn anymore about the people’s voices and the choice we have for candidates is a disaster. If something doesn’t change we the people will have to make a stand we can’t continue like this!!! The 3rd world Islamic shit were allowing into our country is sickening,he have to get a handle on this.Question is how do we turn this country around when politicians across the spectrum are corrupt world puppets?
commented 2019-02-26 11:46:51 -0500
It is not right dear Liza. It is even criminal in my mind. Like my brother with 2 very young childs said: they will have to live in a neighbourhood protected by a top security fence, and hopefully they will earn enough money to eat and have a few hobbies. But what can we do when our democracy does not work for us anymore? Many of our institutions don’t. Very sad.

Ron Joseph, regarding the Somali workers
in Brooks leaving their jobs at the meat packing plant to make better money on the coast selling drugs and fighting turf wars with Indian /khalistani drug dealers in Surrey – that is information to be reminded of often and thrown back in Kenney;s smug face.
commented 2019-02-26 11:34:08 -0500
That’s how I am feeling Carole and I don’t like how I feel. Its not right leaving our country in such a state. I will not rest in peace when my day comes if this is what has to be left behind. Its not right.
commented 2019-02-26 11:29:33 -0500
Dan, I don’t think Kenney is into power sharing with anybody unless its with another globalist. He is UN Compact stamped and approved.
Charred Remains said, “Kenny will bring immigration to Alberta to offset the demographic and water down the separation vote..”

I was thinking the very same thing. What better way to stop the separation talk.
commented 2019-02-26 11:28:49 -0500
I don’t believe it’s the media that influenced Kenny. It’s globalism and the absolute necessity for all economies now to conform to it if they want to survive. Everything now is international. If a company doesn’t make enough profits in one place, it will move in a heartbeat somewhere where it can have a vast base of cheap labour. Bringing in their country millions of unwashed is the goal for every major political parties in the West. It happens that muslims are the ones who want to emigrate because of wars or tyrannical regimes in their countries and for some for their jihad, and luckily, they make dozens of babies. The social and cultural impacts of that mass migration are irrelevant for businesses and for politicians. Money talks.
In the meantime, our unemployed westerners are buying stuff made by slaves in China or elsewhere, but for how long until they become slaves themselves? In this brave new world that is imposed on us, we are just a consumer, with no identity, no culture, no history, therefore no means to form homogeneous groups that the elite had to listen to in the past. They say that wars between countries will be eliminated, but never talk about wars within a country. I’m not sure if we can stop this. Trump is an anomaly, he will pass. Elections are becoming irrelevant. Between a globalist and another globalist, why bother. Specially when the ordinary citizen has no clue, because he is kept ignorant. The French with their Gilets Jaunes marches, have understood that for the last 20 years, it made no difference who they voted for. They are getting poorer and poorer. Canadians do not understand that yet.

Albertans need to become more skeptical about Jason Kenney! Kenney has in the past never been very positive about Alberta. He has not spoken out on issues with any real conviction. He repeated " sort of" the Albertan narrative but never came out with any force. Albertan’s should be very careful what they wish for. Kenney is not the shinning knight they may need! Boycott the election. Boycott all parties! Maybe then this will give a united message to politicians of all stripes.
commented 2019-02-26 11:11:02 -0500
My instinct tells me not to trust Jason Kenney!
Not just because I don’t trust any politicians, but because too many things just don’t add up.
Mr. Kenney knows the election is in the bag and he can’t lose – so why all the lefty rhetoric?
With the exception of Edmonton…and maybe now Brooks…most ridings will go to a conservative of some kind. The best scenario is a power sharing between Kenney and Fildebrandt. With energy and assertion from Joe Blow Albertan, all the lefties and globalists can be turfed from the conservative right, and the province can be righted within the next four years.

As for the NDP criminals and traitorous swine…DO NOT let them off the hook! No forgiveness and reconciliation.
Persecute and prosecute the scum and lock them ALL up – send a message to Ottawa and the rest of the globalist conspirators!

It’s 30°C below in the central interior BC this morning, with a wind, but I can feel the warmth of a CONSERVATIVE SPRING rising…

There is another important leg of the Brooks Alberta Somalia Story that was missed.
When the meat packing workers figured out that there was much more money selling drugs in the Alberta cities, they went there. Once they honed their skills they moved to Surrey BC and had a drug war with the East Indian distributors, which is still going on today. Many shootings in this war.
Yes Jason, Brooks was a great move, Idiot. Now I wish I lived in Alberta so I could vote for Derrek. I followed his career for years as he also worked for the Taxpayers Federation.

There have been few Canadian politicians who treated the media with the contempt it deserved: turdo la first (as much as I hate to give him any credit), Mike Harris, Rene Levesque, and Ralph Klein are the only ones I can think of.

Yeah, Jason is pandering to the leftard media.

Stephen Harper also wasted good opportunities to do something useful, because he was too busy “walking on eggshells”.

To hell with the media, we must never be afraid to “piss them off”

Until politicians are held accountable for their actions they will continue with the globalization of our once great country . UN cucks is all they are and I for one am sick of their 💩 !

It is a chronic condition of Conservative politicians that they shake and shit in front of the MSM.
