This “one very simple question” about Trudeau and SNC-Lavalin still needs to be asked

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Another day, another front page story about Justin Trudeau’s disastrous handling of the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

A couple of days ago he sacked his two top cabinet ministers who were women.

The CBC has run all sorts of attacks against these two women, and none of them have worked. Today's attempt is this one:

Wilson-Raybould set multiple conditions for ending the rift with Trudeau, say sources

Weeks of tense negotiations preceded the PM's highly controversial decision to eject two high-profile MPs

What were those demands? Like cash, or power, or a promotion or something?

Yeah, no. The opposite:

The first three conditions involved staff changes at the very summit of the government. The sources said Wilson-Raybould wanted Trudeau to fire his principal secretary, Gerald Butts, along with Clerk of the Privy Council Michael Wernick and PMO senior adviser Mathieu Bouchard.

This rings true. Gerald Butts quit, unexpectedly, soon after this story started spreading. Micheal Wernick quit, too. Mathieu Bouchard was one of the PMO staff pushing to let the corrupt SNC Lavalin off the hook.

So this is good.

And look at the last two points:

Sources said she also sought assurances that her replacement as attorney general, David Lametti, would not overrule Director of Public Prosecutions Kathleen Roussell and direct her to give SNC-Lavalin a deferred prosecution agreement.

Wilson-Raybould also wanted Justin Trudeau to admit — publicly, or to caucus alone — that his office acted inappropriately in its attempts to convince her to consider granting SNC-Lavalin a DPA.

Again, that makes a lot of sense: Promise to stop interfering.

And the last point — that Trudeau would have to acknowledge that his previous course of action was wrong, even just to MPs in private — how is that not common sense?

I mean, unless Trudeau still thinks everything is fine?

And that’s a big question, isn’t it?

(If nothing’s wrong, why indeed did Wernick and Butts quit? Does that mean they’ll be coming back?)

Meanwhile, did you see Trudeau speaking to a group of young women who visited Parliament yesterday?

Almost 50 of these women stood up and turned their back on him. It was incredible, given how much he’s sold himself as a male feminist; these young women are (or were) his core demographic.

And what did Trudeau actually say during this speech?

First of all, he actually forgot Jane Philpott’s name, which is weird. But then he reframed this whole crisis as between quarrelling women: JWR versus Chrystia Freeland. Jane Philpott vs. Catherine McKenna.

So, this isn’t about him. It’s between quarrelsome, bitchy women — and he’s the calm father figure above it all.

Trudeau is playing a weird, sociopathic political game here. He’s gaslighting them.

He really needs this SNC Lavalin problem to go away. Because if it actually goes to trial, and if actual facts come out, it perhaps will become an extinction-level event for him and his party, by revealing something that we don’t yet know, but that’s lurking...

NEXT: We recently launched a campaign to support students and teachers at a Jewish school in Toronto, who are being punished by their own school due to insane charges of being... anti-semitic!

It's a crazy story — a bit like the "Covington kids" story in the United States.

You can learn all about it, and see how you can support these young people, at StandWithAviva.com.

Tonight, an alumnus of the school, Noah Alter, joins me to talk more about this shameful situation.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Turdeau?— A defamation lawsuit? What a jerk! He defamed himself all by himself and has no one to blame but himself. What a Jerk!

Ron Shea posted this link in another article, again why are the RCMP not investigating all of Trudeau’s activities?

“McCall MacBain $928,000 gift to Trudeau family represents single largest bribery scandal in Canadian history … … “one in six donors (to Trudeau family foundation) have affiliations with organizations currently lobbying the government”.”
commented 2019-04-08 01:59:42 -0400
And given the developments of the past 48-hours, one has to ask how much of the Trudeau family trust fund is tied up in SNC-Lavalin shares???…

Here’s my take on THE affair:
Read “Wisdom 2, 12-22” (I dont know what/where it is in the Torah). But weird that it was coincidentally(?) the reading at today’s Mass.

Hyacinth you got that right, we know damn well the RCMP who , as others have pointed out, sprang into action over Duffy are suddenly immobile and uninterested.

- The Liberal party moralistic stand – It was unethical for JWR to record them ….. breaking the law. Isn’t that the same moralistic stand of other criminal organizations as well? I used to think Trudeau was Canada’s Obama. Now I think he’s Canada’s creepy Joe Biden. There’s a lot more of this SNC scandal yet to come.

- I had heard the entire Dr. Gorka speech. The school officials should be ashamed of themselves. The leftist students are incapable of feeling shame it seems. Petition signed.

“… Why some Canadians deliberately choose to support a compulsive liar who wouldn’t recognize honesty if it smacked his face daily is beyond my ability to comprehend. …”

The most logical answers could be A) thoroughly indoctrinated B) they assume they can get something for free C) they developed from the shallow end of the gene pool.
commented 2019-04-05 12:02:45 -0400
With all the scandals and the mishandling of Canadian tax dollars, the only questions truly remaining are 1. Why have the RCMP not started investigations into all of Trudeau’s activities? and 2. Why have the Opposition parties not demanded that Trudeau and his party step down?

We know why.

As long as turdo, morno and other parasitic pieces of dog-crap like Bombardier and SNC are around, trailer trash will always have something to look down upon.

I’m glad that The Rebel now has ads to help out their revenue side, but to put them in the middle of a comment seems to be quite rude.
commented 2019-04-05 05:12:55 -0400
No one wants to place their own families in the “crosshairs” of the feckless RCMP investigators, obviously compromised now by two decades of Liberal “values”, but as Canadians we have to believe that the “red serge” is still the law of the land in spite of years of political manipulating… If Not!… What, what is “Canada” all about???

Barb Morrison… Might I suggest that is so because of the amount of pakalolo smoke in the air across Canada these days?…

I just signed the petition StandwithAviva…I stand whole-heartedly with her and the students. Leftists work hard to discredit and undermine anything and everything not bearing their belief system stamp. Time for conservatives to stand taller and louder for truth and justice and make SJW’s eat their own BS.
Although Jody Wilson-Raybould finally found a shred of decency within she is still a Liberal and there is massive proof that Liberals are corrupt to the core. Trust no Liberal or socialist, their truth is how much they can scam to benefit themselves. Their declarations of helping their fellow citizens is fake, they have proven their pockets get first and only consideration.
Trudeau is a faux feminist and failure as PM. Why some Canadians deliberately choose to support a compulsive liar who wouldn’t recognize honesty if it smacked his face daily is beyond my ability to comprehend. Canada needs him gone if we are to survive as a nation.

Good question Ron Joseph; that in B.C.’s case alone “red brothers” lay claims to traditional lands that overlap with each other by some 120 per cent… Somebody “speak with forked tongue”???

Our hapless PM placed himself in an impossible position, he chose to wrongfully interfere with a decision that was the AG’s to make and he persisted in that interference in the face of clear warnings from JWR. When he did that, he empowered JWR and she has ruthlessly used that power against our overmatched PM. I think the real killer for Junior was the demand that he apologize to cabinet for his misdeeds. If he did that, he would effectively be openly admitting to his underlings that JWR bested him and that it is she who is calling the shots. I think JWR wanted to humiliate the Boy Blunder before the Liberal caucus in order to further her desire to become Leader of the Liberals and PM of Canada. Frank Underwood would be envious of her plot.

Every special interest group that exists wants a piece of Canada now that it’s all developed and at its full potential..
Charred, funny you should have just said the above, as according to tonight’s news, RUSSIA is remapping our Arctic and taking a piece of our area.
I guess Putin isn’t afraid of Trudeau as he will only react by crying.

Liza Rosie….Excellent article by Conrad Black on JWR, in the National Post.
I have two questions which I don’t believe even Conrad could answer.
1. How many of the 600 tribes that apparently own Canada, are really American and the US Calvary chased them up here 2 or 3 hundred years ago? Shouldn’t these 600 owners provide proof that their tribes were here and in certain areas at a definite time.
2. If we all have to leave Canada and go back to Europe; will that include Jody’s White Husband?
commented 2019-04-05 00:49:34 -0400
As has been suggested by more than poster, the Boy Blunder may well indeed be a world-class “sociopath”; BUT that is not inconsistent with having pakalolo smoke blown in your face since you were an infant… And, evidently, still are???

As Carole said, This Charbonneau Commission showed some Liberal Corruption, however all levels of Government have their hands dirty.
If you just click the headline on each link for 10 seconds each, you will be shocked at what you see. At one time the Mayors of the Cities were almost all in jail.

I remember the brouhaha about JWR having a pay-to-play meeting with Toronto business leaders not long after she became the Justice Minister. So no, I don’t trust her. She finally found some backbone and did the right thing – as she was elected to do. She stood with our Moron In Chief, Trudeau, through thick and thin, but now found a conscience Took over three years.

She is not a hero for doing what she was elected to do.

Christianity and Judaism are being attacked by secularism and Islam.
This whole attempt to secularize Canada is trying to wipe out the historical value of what Jews have experienced for thousands of years and what better way to distort history and confuse younger generations, than to twist the truth of Hitler’s extermination of Jews.
Even Quebec’s new law on religious apparel, etc is targeting Jews and attempting to eliminate the Jewish religion from Quebec.

Robert Barnes offered to represent the pro-life students pro bono.

Too bad JWR wasn’t Conservative.
You’re right Ezra. He plays women against women. That’s classic passive/aggressive behaviour. That’s what men who are cheating do, when they’re caught and kicked out by their wife.

Actually, it was Gordon Chang that brought up the rules on Twitter, and subsequently was on CBC P&P. The msm messes up enough, we don’t need to fudge these things.

It’s too bad the school admin didn’t catch Gorka’s speech – they need it!!
commented 2019-04-04 22:21:16 -0400
You are right Ezra, too many people from SNC connected to Justin and the Liberals. In Qc, we also had the Charbonneau Commission for a cost of $45 millions and most of the corruption was on Liberals, most not even charged or investigated. Of course, the Libranos in Ottawa are corrupted and that’s including Justin. Lavscam smells too bad to be clean. Good reporting Ezra.
commented 2019-04-04 22:02:10 -0400
Yes, I commend JWR in regards to the SNC Lavalin cover up, and she runs circles around Justin and his underlings in the integrity department, but I do not trust that she has the same vision for Canada as I do, and if she stays in politics she needs to be considered with caution.
Conrad Black’s National post article read to the end, outlines my concerns about JWR.
I want us to work WITH our first Nations, but not at the expense of the 98 % of the rest of the country.

Trudeau digs his own grave, step by step stone by stone. When he has it deep enough we need to break his fingers, lest he try’s to climb out.
The Voting polls are looking good for now but we still have a way to go yet and Trudeau is a devious bastard and his advisers are clever. Beware of false flag situations set up to make him look good, assuming that he can release himself from his groping noose. Another point is the fact that Trudeau was selected to be PM of Canada, by the UN along with the PM’s of the UK, NZ and Australia. He is one of their ‘New World Order Marxist’, these people play dirty, a good example is what is happening in the UK right now over leaving the EU. The Parliament building has just undergone a complete renovation, including the roof. Suddenly the parliament building sprung a leak in the roof that will not be fixed until next Monday, just a week before the UK is intending to leave the EU. Parliament is closed until then because of heavy rain. This is a great help for the ‘Remain in the EU’ crowd and I bet it is not accidental.
When/If Trudeau wins the Election, there will be many happy Muslims on the streets and the crime rate will go up.

While I suspect more would come out, I’m going with sociopath. He acts like a crass dictator, all of whom suffer similar conditions no? He didn’t think twice about interfering in 5 CRA probes, or cutting of Energy East for Quebec, and turning the Charter into a sword, along with all the other traits you pointed out.
commented 2019-04-04 21:19:37 -0400
The one very simple question we need to ask is what’s taking the RCMP-investigation required pronto. The PM is a law breaker,a liar,a fraudster,he needs to lose his job!!!
commented 2019-04-04 21:16:21 -0400
As far as I can tell, your assessment of Trudeau as a sociopath is correct. He does behave like one. He also seems to believe his own baloney.
