Jody Wilson-Raybould “told the truth about Justin Trudeau. I think he’s going to jail.”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Today Jody Wilson-Raybould testified about Justin Trudeau, Gerald Butts, and the rest of the Prime Minister’s Office, and others in the Liberal inner circle, other cabinet ministers, and even the head of the supposedly non-partisan civil service, the clerk of the privy council, Michael Wernick, how all of these people and more conspired to pressure her to drop criminal charges against a corrupt company called SNC Lavalin.

That’s a Quebec-based engineering firm that was caught paying $48 million in bribes in Libya. They were being prosecuted for those crimes in Canada, but because they’re a Quebec company, and Trudeau is a Quebec prime minister — well, the Libranos instinct came out.

And so the Montreal Liberals went to work on Jody Wilson-Raybould, the first aboriginal woman justice minister in Canadian history. They met with her, they pestered her, they pressed her, a dozen times. And she refused to bend.

So they broke her — they fired her.

The Globe and Mail reported some of this a few weeks ago. But it was mainly anonymous sources. Wilson-Raybould herself hired a former Supreme Court judge as her lawyer — to make sure she complied with her obligations as a former cabinet minister and justice minister, in terms of confidentiality and legal privilege.

Today, she negotiated her appearance at a Parliamentary committee. Trudeau waived some of his legal privilege, to allow her to talk at least somewhat.

And she did.

It’s about half an hour. I’m just going to play it to you in full, stopping from time to time to give my thoughts.

I had another monologue fully prepared for today, but this late-breaking news is too important.

And I want to show it to you in full, because I know you won’t get that elsewhere.

It’s the most amazing thing I think I’ve ever seen in Canadian politics.

Watch it with me tonight.

P.S. 15 years ago, when I ran the Western Standard magazine, we created "The Libranos" poster — a satirical image of Liberal ministers of the Chretien era who corrupted politics. Well, the Libranos are back, with a new generation of corruption under Justin Trudeau.

The Rebel is offering an updated version of the popular "Libranos" poster. Trudeau and his team are as corrupt as ever. Show your defiance of this corrupt political culture by proudly displaying a gorgeous, stylish Libranos poster — or even wear it as a T-shirt or get it on a coffee mug!

And tell your friends about it too — it’s all at TheLibranos.com!

Hey John Wick I guess you were half right about who might win but after this I doubt that one of them will be Trudeau . Almost make me feel ok about the loss in Burnaby South with the PPC . To bad this news didn’t come out before the elections . The Libranos would still have won in Quebec they have no shame . Wonder if Trudeau and Morneau will be the mama or the papa in prison .
I bet those Chinese leaders are LTAO . We follow the word of law in Canada but the Liberals sure as hell DON’T .
And all you hoity toity Trump hating Canadians that think we are so much better . Give your head a shake .

I remember those famous words by PM Harper leading up to the 2015 election, “He’s Just Not Ready”.
He is ready now!!!!, ready to go down, ready for criminal trial and ready for the slammer.

Trudeau’s response to Raybould’s testimony? Cream of Bullshit on a bun.
commented 2019-02-27 23:29:26 -0500
Now we know why Butts resigned and Trudeau will likely resign by the end of the week. Plus there will likely many more resigning as well, because all involved are likely to be under investigation for conspiracy to obstruction of justice, by the RCMP.

Wow…..it will be entertaining watching these gangsters start ratting each other out and jockeying for the few get out of jail free cards.
Oh all knowing Andrew and troll with multiple personalities……..what say you clowns?

The reason I posted the stuff below is I couldn’t believe the many Quebec Journalists that after the inquiry asked Scheer and Singh, " What did Trudeau do wrong, he was only trying to save thousands of Quebec Jobs ?"

Henry Reardon : I agree.The former Attorney General may have an agenda that is not showing,as yet….
The important value of this situation is that it may provide the hemlock that Trudeau is finally forced to drink.
The Liberal party(in it’s present form) still needs to be decimated,because Havana Man is only the front man for this beyond-toxic organization.There are still plenty of aspiring power seekers and behind-the scenes puppeteers lurking.
I somehow do not think that she is a Joan of Arc type…..

An exciting day this was! Now if the RCMP don’t get involved, it will look too glaringly crooked. As my brother used to say: Yeyusss, yeyusss, yeyusss!

Ezra, you should have shown the Libranos’ in orange jumpsuits, while holding their ball and chains. This was a good day for Canada! I’ll hold my breath and hope that we see these liberal clowns receive real justice. If we don’t, it will confirm how far down our country has fallen under these crooks.

I was genuinely surprised by Wilson-Raybould’s testimony today. Last week, she was invited to speak to Cabinet and even sat in the Cabinet benches in the House, even though she is no longer in the Cabinet. Trudeau even apologized for allowing her name to be dragged through the mud with leaks about her being “difficult”. I was sure she’d made a deal of some kind with Trudeau where she would get something big in exchange for explaining that this whole SNC-Lavalin matter was just a big misunderstanding. Otherwise, I can’t imagine Trudeau agreeing to waive immunity as much as he did for today’s testimony. If he had thought she would say anything like she actually said, he would have kept the muzzle firmly in place.

That leaves me very curious about a few things:
1. What was it he promised her in exchange for her agreeing to explain that it was all a misunderstanding? A settlement of some major aboriginal land claims? More powers for first nations across the country?
2. What made her renege on the deal? What did Trudeau and the people around him do to convince her that even this big thing he’d promised was not going to happen despite his promise?
3. What possible political future can she have now? Even if Trudeau resigns, I can’t see the Liberals putting her in his place after she just torpedoed him and did major damage to the Liberal Party in general. I don’t see her joining the Conservatives: Scheer can’t be progressive enough for her. If she were to join the NDP or Greens, she’d be doomed to being just a scold with no chance of really effecting change. It seems to me, she has committed political suicide. I don’t see any way around it. Does anyone here see any option that actually lets her accomplish whatever political goals she originally had?

Corrupt Prime Minister of Canada? Who would have thought this could ever happen… Well, me.. When one has watched this kind of stuff going down for half a century in Canada… Hey, he’s Pierre’s son, right? This is fun, and I can’t think of a better way to enjoy my retirement years… It kind of falls in line with what’s happening South of the 49’th…
commented 2019-02-27 22:46:45 -0500
There is no way that Canadians can trust anyone in Justin’s cabinet now. How can this government perform its job for Canada after this? I am wondering just how deep this corruption goes. They are all tainted now.

Regardless of the outcome of all this, I bet that Ezra’s video will go viral on You Tube. Really good show tonight Ezra and I hope that they hang Trudeau up high, so the world may see the true meaning of the word ‘Scum’

All can say s un-freaking-believable. She’s the Trudeau-nator.

Wow did JT ever have that deer in the headlights look when he came out for his lying and change the topic session ! PRICELESS !! I hope he sees a lot of BUTTS in jail !

@Harold Hoff – I wouldn’t make too much of Jody Wilson-Raybould’s aboriginal ancestry here. She’s far from a saint or whatever the equivalent is among her people. Remember, she and Trudeau both made statements after the Gerald Stanley trial to the effect that the jury made the Wrong Decision and this would not be permitted in future. Does that sound like a woman who respects the judicial process? She obviously has qualms about SNC-Lavalin but she apparently has no similar qualms about dropping strong hints that anyone who kills a fellow aboriginal needs to be convicted, no matter the actual circumstances. In that regard, she’s in lock-step with Trudeau.

Tammie I’m sure there is much more to learn from JWR. I can’t wait for the rest of the story.

I have been toughing it out listening to Question period the past few days. It sounded like they had re-balanced since late last week, and had their answers down with the appropriate spin they had been handed down from above. Bardish Chagger repeating that it was perfectly legal for those meetings to have happened and no one did anything they weren’t allowed by law to do. She was down right cocky.
I cannot wait to see how they look tomorrow morning, or if they even show up for work.

What a marvelous day.

Sorry Rebels.. I’m not a trusting soul… I’ll believe it when Trudeau and crew are in Jail.

Hold on folks.. Is Trudeau going to ask for a fair Trial?… He and his corrupt crew have made new Laws and discarded some.. This still could be Liberal corruption spin on steroids!
commented 2019-02-27 22:14:26 -0500
If the RCMP do not soon launch a proper investigation into this matter, the Force will be forever doomed to be caterogized into the exact same cubby-hole as the now-disgraced Gerald Butts Basic Dictatorship.

It’s their funeral, and when the day comes, I will mourn alongside all the other Canadians.

Butt’s Man and the Boy Blunder for Prison 2019!…

Here’s an angle to consider. PMJT appointed his Cabinet based on identity politics, Thus an indigenous Justice Minister, and one refreshingly with deep moral convictions. Is it possible she looked at all this malfeasance and simply thought “these Europeans have been screwing us over for hundreds of years, and this is exactly how they did. SO now I’m here and we’re about to change all that”. Just a thought.

I listened to JWR’s testimony until the start of the fifth round of questions. As she was reading her opening statement, my jaw dropped several times. A thorough and complete police investigation into this entire matter is required. There was a repeated campaign by the government to interfere and bully JWR the Attorney General of Canada into changing her mind. She is prohibited to speak to what happened after her demotion, what kind of pressure was applied after that? WE deserve the entire sordid story. She referred to “veiled threats” made to her as well as her staff
Ezra, please make tonight’s show available in it’s entirety outside the paywall.
