Trudeau tells yet another version of his SNC-Lavalin story — “and he might get away with it”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Instead of dealing with declining Canadian crude oil production, or the executive order signed by Trump for a “buy American” trade barrier, our whole political class is obsessed by Trudeau’s scandals.

Even the U.S. ambassador, who should be fighting for Canadian exports to the U.S, is busy holed up in Ottawa with Trudeau, trying to fix the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal.

Yesterday Gerald Butts came out with his side of the story. It didn’t rebut most of the points made by Jody Wilson-Raybould, but essentially calling Raybould-wilson a liar.

So until yesterday, it was just "she said and she said" — JRW, and Dr. Jane Phlipott, who quit with a stunning letter saying she didn’t trust Trudeau anymore.

But yesterday it became "she said, he said."

And today Trudeau weighed in, as if he was above the fray. He described himself as someone observing, outside of it. As if he were a referee, not a fighter. Or a critic of a play, not an actor in it.

You see, he said, there are two sides to the story — JWR and Gerald Butts. And Trudeau will tell you who was right.

TONIGHT I'll show you some clips of Trudeau's remarks from this morning. Things like:

"I’ve spent my entire political career fighting for justice, and for people. Social justice. Protecting Canadian jobs. Since I started politics, I’ve always worked to the best of my abilities to represent people faithfully. The SNC-Lavalin file was no exception to this rule.”

That’s obviously untrue. He hasn’t lifted a finger for 200,000 unemployed oil and gas workers — other than to cancel pipelines and bring in McKenna’s crazy bill.

And I can’t name any justice he’s fought for — he’s actually fighting to exempt rich Quebec companies from justice. But even that’s not allowed; it’s illegal to consider job losses as a reason for not prosecuting a criminal company. But that’s exactly the excuse he used. And really — who’s going to call him on it? The CBC?

"SNC-Lavalin is a company that employs 9,000 Canadians across this country. They create many thousands of spinoff jobs and peripheral industries. They directly or indirectly put food on the table for countless families as one of Canada’s major employers.”

Yeah, he did this to stop people from starving. Because God forbid, a company with a market capitalization of more than $6 billion should have to pay $50 million in fines. Sure, they paid $48 million in bribes. But that's different...

What a kook.

Now, some reporters were skeptical. But anyone can see that skepticism in the Media Party waning.

I say again what I said yesterday:

Unless the RCMP investigate, he’s going to get away with it.

Oh — and the economy and all that? Well, I’m sure you’re just experiencing that differently than he is...

NEXT: Toronto Sun columnist Anthony Furey has said that "this is all about credibility" and in that contest, "Jody Wilson-Raybould comes out on top."

Tonight he's my guest to talk about this, and what's next for the Trudeau Liberals.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Kris Larson,
Well said. I also pointed out the destruction of canada’s two economic provinces via the liberals with no questions from canadians and no support from the liberals but the first thing when facing corruption charges for this Quebec company and “we did it to save jobs” was the agreed upon response and knowing canuks suffer ADD, there will be no fallout and this group of nazi’s will be in again in october and then it is OVER FOR WE CANADIANS with canada ALREADY DONE AS A ‘NATION’!
we are literally committing SUICIDE AS WE HAVE HANDED OUR FORMER NATION , ECONOMY AND LIVES TO THE MOST VILE, DESPICABLE, RACIST, TREASONOUS, MENTALLY/INTELLECTUALLY VOID, CRIMINALLY INSANE NAZI and now I am going to thank my children for deciding NOT to bring any INNOCENT LIVES INTO THIS SEWER because those born since this bastard came into power will have no chance for a future or life because of him and their parents who brought him in and bought all his lies, corruption, broken laws, promises and so on.
canada is DONE and so are CANADIANS!
commented 2019-03-09 19:09:37 -0500
I stated when this first came out that he will bully and lie his way through it and considering canuks all seem to suffer ADD, he will get in again and then bring the hammer down on us as never before because we DARED question and criticize him over this corruption!
In short order, he SERVES HIMSELF, QUEBEC AND THE INVADERS! simple as that and his puppetmaster is even more DANGEROUS THAN HE and is still BEING PAID BY US TO RUN THE TRUDEAU LIBERAL
Canadians need to be FRIGHTENED FOR THEIR LIVES, but sadly they simply aren’t smart enough and will vote him in again along with all the illegals and then we will all be in the gutters- and when I say “we” I mean we CANADIANS !!
The fall of a once great nation and it’s people and it only took two twisted, vile, diabolical, corrupt, racist, treasonous bastards to do it!

The Butts-Trudeau regime cancelled the Northern Gateway pipeline, then forced Energy East out with additional burdensome regulations. Who cares about a potential economic boon for New Brunswick and the port of St John when Montreal’s “environmentalists” have to be appeased, as they dump raw sewage into the St Lawrence?

Adding insult to injury, Butts-Trudeau wasted tax dollars purchasing Trans Mountain some months ago for an amount well in excess of its value, then, surprise surprise, neglected to extend it. One wonders what the judicially mandated extra talks with Aboriginal groups will yield. Don’t be surprised if Trudeau officially kills Trans Mountain early in his next mandate, assuming he is reelected.

How many direct and indirect jobs were lost or never created because of Liberal dithering with the oil patch?

Suffice it to say, it is rich for “Gerry” Butts to claim the federal government was only trying to “save jobs” when he, the Prime Minister, and their minions, including the Clerk of the Privy Council, unsuccessfully pressured the Attorney General to pursue a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA), instead of criminally charging SNC Lavalin, who violated Canadian law by securing contracts in Libya with bribes to some Libyan officials.

Of course, Trudeau and Butts assure us the erstwhile Attorney General’s demotion to Veterans’ Affairs only happened because Scott Brison resigned from cabinet. Now we know! You know what they say about friends like these, Scott.

Trudeau comes off as an equivocator (for you Liberals that’s a person who dances around a subject and doesn’t tell the whole truth) and as rather bereft of intelligence. Of course, in this case the truth is completely damning. This is the same guy who is representing us on the world stage. An equivocating stammering trust fund baby who is willing to gut the Canadian economy just to look good to the Climate Change freaks. Meanwhile China and India with 36 + percent of the world population pay lip service to Climate Change. Canada has less than 1/2 of 1 percent of the world population. Weakening our economy is not going to change the climate.

Since I cannot use the word ‘man’ when referring to Jihadi-Justin-Groper, so for a biological male whose main achievement in life before being tapped as a talking head in the PMO of Canada for a bunch of Globalists – only because of his name and ease of manipulation – was as some kind of drama teacher, allegedly, he sure can’t act to save his life. He lacks any kind of sincerity and he’s gotta be one of the world’s worst liars! And not because he has anything like virtue, only because deep down in Jihadi-Justin-Groper where his soul and intellect should abide, there is nothing there but his narcissism…

What should happen:
An All Encompassing Official Investigation – NOT by the LPC!
ALL those Five P Professionals and other conspirators and/or dupes, found guilty of facilitating the destruction of Canada through their professional positions, SHOULD be tried and convicted of treason and other high crimes – starting with their official representative, Jihadi-Justin-Groper.
They should NOT be let off…without some kind of severe punishment.
No forgiveness, no reconciliation BS! Send a message!
End the corruption!
Then changes need to be made.
Starting with an immediate rollback of all of Jihadi-Justin-Groper’s treasonous damage…I don’t know how we’ll get all our money back.
This ‘law of Harper’s’ that Butts doesn’t like, seems to be a good starting point…it has the flavour of the best of the American Constitution that limits the state’s power, granted to it by the people!

What will happen:
Jihadi-Justin Groper and his globalist masters and other conspirators and paid whores will get away it…end of Canada…end of story.

Assuming that the RCMP will refuse to investigate this entire scandal , Scheer should be asked if he forms a government , will he fire the Commissioner based on her political affiliation to the Liberals and obvious bias.
commented 2019-03-08 04:04:24 -0500
So Ironic how the left and their lackey media painted Harper as a Tyrant for doing nothing tyrannical , yet Justin and the Libs walk all over the law and wield their power unchecked and the same people defend them. WHAT A JOKE!

Zuzana Simpson because they are not a government they are a dictatorship.

Commissioner Lackey will jump at the chance to prove to Canadians that Trudeau did not chose her over qualified people, just because she is a woman. She will do that by not having an investigation on her fellow Liberals, therefore saving taxpayers more borrowed money.
commented 2019-03-08 01:03:18 -0500
Why is this government allowed to block an independent investigation? Just because you’re a majority government shouldn’t give you carte blanche.
commented 2019-03-08 00:21:43 -0500
Your up RCMP. Please investigate and tell us if a law was broken. The Liberals, especially Trudeau, sound like Jian Ghomeshis legal team. Why? This dirty we feel needs to be cleansed by a real legal investigation or we all go forward feeling like we have been victimized by illegal acts that lost us an attorney general who was of the highest integrity, dedicated to the law and refused to be corrupted.

Why is the phrase, “In anyway”, so seldom referenced in any of this investigation?
commented 2019-03-07 23:38:48 -0500
Disappointed that ‘the not economic factor’ wasn’t thrown back at Butts by the conservative MPs present, some of whom, like Raitt, I understand are lawyers!

Keith Barnes.

Thanks for the post. It’s pretty disheartening. I think they decided to prosecute him for showing up the BBC. The decision was made the same time as he was banned from social media. Right after his rally. I guess the British just never learn. They did it with Ghandi, they did it with Nelson Mandella, and now Tommy. They just don’t learn do they?

Peter, good on Don Martin! So refreshing to hear the msm speak the truth.

When are these two sociopaths going to jail? How much more damage can they do?

How can Canadians get an independent prosecutor counsel? Since the whole of government approach is corruption and suppression of the justice and the media

- This is far from over. They won’t be able to sell the jobs spin to any but their most diehard supporters. This is the government that kills energy sector jobs & is pushing ahead with the job killing carbon tax. This is the government that gave hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Bombardier, only to see them move more production to China & Mexico.

Sorry about that Ezra, the link was posted yesterday by Greely, I think but nobody seemed to notice….I think it is important for people to be aware of what is going on.

I am so SICK of hearing this liar say that he is ‘Reflecting on things’.
Reflect on this you liar, YOU will pay for all the wrong you have done to Canadians.
I and also so SICK of hear him say that different people experience and see things differently. You think that gets you off the hook – you slime ball?
So sick of this liar and drama queen.

Trudeau will not be happy until Canada has caught up with the UK, he wants Canadians to smell the fear and slip on the blood.
Yesterday in a comment I mentioned that the City of London had just reported it’s 26th death from stabbing by knife. Well today they just had another one, that is three in two days. 27 fatal stabbings since January the 1st. Trudeau would just love to beat this record and it is the reason why he is so desperate to stay in power. A bigger despot than Theresa May.
commented 2019-03-07 21:54:41 -0500
Not enough attention is being paid to the fact that Katie Telford said that she could arrange for several favourable op ed pieces if JWR would change her mind. Obviously the MSM doesn’t want to draw any attention to this. This is one of the smelliest parts of this scandal.

I have faith that Justin will continue to fall…it’s been his pattern for years now…

Some of knew his True Self…SNN pointed it out all the time…

It took 2 years for the International Media to figure it out…

And Canada…although last…finally realized it too…

And that’s where we are today…

And it will continue…the Mark Norman case will expose more Corruption…

He’s a Gaffe Machine…

The Shine of Sunny Ways…ironically have exposed him…

There will be more to come…it’s inevitable…it’s in his DNA

I still have Faith…
commented 2019-03-07 21:29:22 -0500
Anyone who has to read a script to tell a lie is a failure and that is all that Justin did, lie. He learned nothing at drama school, a six year old could see through his lies. The bigger that lie the larger the eye and Justin’s eyes were like saucers. You are going down Justin, you are going down. I don’t quite know on whom, now that Butts has gone, but I am sure you will find someone……God help Canada.

Watching the Sockpuppet reminds me of the old Russian propaganda movies where Stalin, sometimes shown in the office, sometimes in the garden, was the slow speaking, elder statesman, paternal and wise, leading his people against the evil Nazis. Switch out a few words and you have a benevolent and wise Trudeau leading his people against the evil Harperites. Both scenarios are stage managed deceptions obscuring the truth. The truth was that Stalin was a tyrant whose staff and people were afraid of him. Similarly, Trudeau is a fool actor parroting lines and policies he can barely comprehend. The adults in the liberal party have a few short months to regain sanity before they get slammed by the reality coming down the tracks. We must hold them responsible.

the term “social justice warrior” is Orwellian Newspeak for “overbearing self appointed douchebag champion of other people’s remakably picciune grievances”
