Journalism is “racist”? I’ve been “called every name in the book for asking tough questions” about Monsef’s background

Candice MalcolmRebel Contributor

I've been covering the story of Democratic Institutions Minister Maryam Monsef's background since it began, and I've been called an "Islamophobe" and more. All because I'm doing my job as a journalist: Asking tough questions about a government minister.

It's important to know whether or not a government official is being treated differently than other Canadians and would-be immigrants.

We know that a number of individuals have been prosecuted by the Trudeau government itself for lying on refugee application forms.

Why should Monsef receive special treatment just because Barack Obama singled her out in a speech, and she's one of Trudeau's cabinet ministers?

Candice Malcolm is married to a Muslim.

Justin doesn’t want us to know that David.

So what is going on with Monsef these days? I know she is hoping along with Justin, that the country is otherwise occupied and will forget all about her immigrant past.

How many of the refugees from Syria are Christians?

Great work Candice and I want to see her deported from Canada for breaking our Canadian law. I feel Justin Trudeau should be charged to for being involved with this happening. I say impeach Justin Trudeau.

Nice work Candice. This all smells very badly. The “I believe I was” response when Monsef was asked if she was born in Afghanistan was an obvious preemptive attempt of future challenges of her being a liar – “I didn’t know, really”. It will be very interesting to see if the man child PM will apply the law of the land equally or slither his way to a double standard outcome. Put this issue up against that glass of orange juice and the outcome should be obvious with a deportation as a chaser.

Great reporting Candice…keep up the awesome work you are doing.

Thanks for all your passion all of you at The Rebel

The perennial ‘pass’ of the privileged…immigrants. No one knew who Obama was…yet he got elected President. No one knew Monsef yet she moves easily into government office and into the Canadian Cabinet.

How is these unknowns move around so easily into top circles? If we could only follow the money we would know. How did Obama pay for his high flying education? Who sponsors these people? Where are the journalists who investigate? Why are they not permitted to investigated CERTAIN people? Why are they excoriated for investigating these who are apparently privileged?

What qualifications set these privileged souls apart from others? Are the qualifications valid or just having the right ‘connections’? Will we ever know?

Thank you Ms. Malcolm for seeking answers. But if there is big money and big influence involved you may just be shut out…after all the mainstream media is ignoring this story…what do they know?

Courageous investigating and journalism on an important issue, all carried out in the face of name-calling. Name-calling is the lowest form of debate used by those who have nothing constructive to add to the discussion or who have something to hide. Thank you for persevering.

So, the RCMP gave her a security check, gave her a level 3 clearance, and neglected to discover that she was born in Iran? Now that’s some security clearance. This failure is extremely serious and the RCMP must be held accountable for this incompetence. She lied, and her Canadian citizenship has not been revoked? This is what happens when a boy with good hair is put in charge. Useless…absolutely useless.
commented 2016-11-10 18:13:39 -0500
Far too much of this going on in this day and age.

John Haste, I read different reports about Wikileaks and the reason that Wikileaks never retracted anything, it’s because it’s all the TRUTH! No, they are not criminals, they go after the criminals. Geez, it’s been obvious all along. How can anyone miss that?
commented 2016-11-10 17:29:03 -0500
Is Minister Monsef practicing Taqiyya (taqiya, taqiyah, taqiyyah) is a form of Islamic deception. The Quran (16:106 and 3:28) allows Muslims to lie in order to protect themselves or to protect the Muslim community?? Whether or not she is, she is not fit to hold the position of Minister in our government and should be relieved of her citizenship via the new legislation as well as her government position.

Excellent reporting, Candice Malcolm and thanks.
commented 2016-11-10 17:23:34 -0500
And WikiLeaks information can’t be trusted because they got all their information by hackers STEALING it. They’re CRIMINALS! Worse than you… ;)

Funny how they’ve never had to retract anything they’ve released…

Thanks for doing what you guys do!
commented 2016-11-07 21:22:41 -0500
Monsef was thinking about moving back to the mid east anyway. They should do everybody a favour and deport her.
commented 2016-11-07 16:10:26 -0500
It absolutely galls me that a 31 yr old who came here as a refugee & whose mother lied on the application, who lets it slip that her trip to Iran should be hushed has now been put in charge of telling us Canadians how we should vote in the future.
BTW, I heard it said by people in the know that her flying across Canada setting up committees to get feedback is for show only & isn’t even considered in the decisions & even if it was, how are a few hundred people expressing their opinion speak for every one else. When you start taking your cues from Twitter accounts, that doesn’t speak very well for how you deal with what’s important to Canadians. If they go ahead & spring on us a new fandangled process, many, many people will not even understand how it works & the result will be chaotic.

Funny how when the Washington Post exposed Nixon and the watergate affair it was great journalism. Now they protect the very corruption that they they fought against.
commented 2016-11-07 12:59:52 -0500
Refugee or Spy?
I doubt very much she is a Canadian patriot to be trusted. Send her back where she came from.

We know the RCMP seems to be in the hip pocket of the Liberal Socialists, so how can we trust they screened her properly. This this the kind of person we want in our Canadian Government?
commented 2016-11-06 22:09:36 -0500
Don;t forget Obumble slobered his praises all over her, softening the lefties feelings in case there were repercussions about her in the future, and the sympathy card was needed. They are all in it. Valery Jarret? Muslim Brotherhood? Trudope the Younger? Gerald Buttfuck? … Donald Trump is the tonic that is needed to turn the bus around.

Dump jt and the rest

Jay Kelly, would you please move to Absurdistan or somewhere in Europe? You would feel much more at home there. No thinking required- just parrot back whatever the government of the day tells you. I think you’d be a good fit. I really do.
commented 2016-11-06 21:56:24 -0500
Thanks for the hard work, Candice. Keep on this and don’t stop until she is deported. Since the Conservatives have given up we need you to keep on keeping’ on.
commented 2016-11-06 21:01:02 -0500
I think she’s a plant by Iran to infiltrate which works perfectly with Justin’s plan to destroy our country. Much like Huma Aberdeen is doing for Saudis in the US
commented 2016-11-06 20:07:19 -0500
Yvette, I don’t really get where Monsef is coming from with that. She is quite passive aggressive and victimhood is her friend. I think its just part of her shtick? …and Justin’s because women should get special treatment because after all its 2016! Not sure what that’s about, she is a strange one.
commented 2016-11-06 19:36:59 -0500
Lisa…..Monsef says “it’s a whole other thing that after she or other women are elected how much help are they going to receive to make them successful”. (I am paraphrasing). Does that mean to agree with everything that she says & does? As a Minister is there such a thing as a successful Minister. You shouldn’t be in that job for praises, but to be accountable to your constituents & the rest of the country.
commented 2016-11-06 19:24:29 -0500
Great work Candice…………..please keep it up.
A powder puff PM, protecting a lying cabinet Minister, adored by lying inept, MSM (mainly stupid morons).
commented 2016-11-06 19:22:03 -0500
Trudeau is deliberately & recklessly shielding & protecting Monsef despite his big hullabaloo about “he would be transparent” promise. Why can’t a gov’t come clean & deal with members of their party who have or who may have broken the law, the same way they would deal with Joe Blow. No, instead they twist & spin everything. I have no trust in Trudeau, but for the no common sense votors who do, why the hell does that not wake them up & stop them from giving him a pass all the time. Enough with the drooling already. I can’t believe how it took so little time from when she came back from Iran to run for mayor & then for MP in her riding & what a jackpot, Trudeau makes her Minister of Democratic Institutions. This problem started with the application in which nothing was checked & it mushroomed from there. Candice, keep going & let’s see if Trudeau has the guts to act in the best interest of Canadians or is it going to go down as just another bunch of BS.

In the first minutes of this vid, of a town hall meeting on electoral reform in Waterloo Ontario, Monsef gives a ‘special shout out’ to The Afghani’s in the room, the people “who keep her motivated”. She describes walking into the meeting and seeing the group of people from Afghanistan in the parking lot coming into the meeting together and says to herself, ‘my people’.
One person would say that is a normal response from an immigrant, another might say, she is at a town hall meeting about Canadian electoral reform, representing Canadians and she talks about how her heart swells to see a group of ‘her people’, from Afghanistan.? Does she represent all Canadians or not? Does she put some Canadians before others?

There are many things she says and has done which make me question her allegiance to Canada. I don’t doubt she appreciates the opportunity her new country opens up for people from Islamic countries, but I do question her ideals. She is a globalist the same as Trudeau is, and making changes in Canada to bring about what she(they) call a more ‘inclusive’ country may be good for ‘her’ people but is it good for the rest of us who make up (at the moment anyway) the bulk of people in Canada?
commented 2016-11-06 16:25:06 -0500
Monsef is Canada’s Huma Abedin . Abedin is Hilary Clinton top aide who has a very strong connection with Saudi Arabia and terrorist groups. Abedin refuses to explain the connection between her family and several Middle East organizations. Another Muslim close to the top political influence in the country with a shadowy past. The commonality is the inability to come clean and be honest about their pasts and more importantly their future intentions.

PETER NETTERVILLE said: “A small mind with a short attention span is characteristic of socialist/progressive trolls.”

If I may……socialists are not progressive, they are regressive!
commented 2016-11-06 14:49:14 -0500
Liberals have been good for the past year to blame everyone, but themselves. Harper would have vetted this person, but not Trudeau, why? We all know, why? Monsef was Trudeau’s darling as Trudeau pushes his refugee/immigration policies.

Keep up the great Rebel Media/Candice!

Here is some information on Trudeau’s one year in office –

Imagine the knashing of teeth and general uproar from the lefties and the leftist MSM had this been an operative in the previous Conservative Gov’t!
