Justin Trudeau will be the next PM -- despite his party's anti-rural snobbery

Brian LilleyArchive

In my latest podcast, I explain why rural issues like hunting and gun ownership will keep costing the Liberal Party votes.

And speaking of the Liberals...

Why is Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau flip-flopping on fighting ISIS?


Obama pointedly ignored it, but if you missed it too, be sure to listen to Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress yesterday.

No, it's not "old news" already:

The Israeli prime minister's address is a must-listen for many reasons.

READ Brian Lilley's latest book, CBC Exposed -- It's been called "the political book of the year."

Trudeau will be leader of a country?

Who knew……I didn’t even know he was emigrating.

Hi Brian. Love all your opinion pieces. Agree with some, not so much with others. But… could you break up your podcasts into smaller segments. Say 5 to 8 minutes each, broken up by topic. If there is a longer topic, cut it up into pt1 and pt2. It is a busy world out there so turning on a 33 minute audio only segment that may touch on any number of subjects is asking a lot of yours truly. Otherwise, keep up the good work.

Richard, CSIS targets violent extremists. Conservatives do not use violence to make our points. Nice try, though.

Richard … are you DD in disguise?
commented 2015-03-04 17:46:43 -0500
Richy, baby, the reason you can quote from Israel’s self-loathing leftist rag is because Israel has free speech. Unlike Iran.

Bill Elder – you think by the time trudeau is 60, less than 20 years from now, that medical science will have found a way to make him politically smart? Because no amount of aging will give this guy a spine or a brain.
commented 2015-03-04 15:52:07 -0500
Brian I think you’re sniffing glue if you believe this empty headed hoser royal will ever be PM. It’s not a matter of “not being ready yet” it’s a matter of not having the requisite intellect, wisdom or worldliness needed. Maybe when he’s 60 or so – maybe.

Richard funny how you quote 2012 report that clearly concludes Iran in 2014 will be ina position to move quickly to nukes. You YT idiots are hilarious.
Dr Gary Samore clearly backs Natanyohu’s position. He’s an expert on Iran’s nuke program. He states it would be a mistake to allow Iran to be in a position to move quickly into nuke production which Obama’s deal would do.

Richard, you should read the recent article in the Washington Post Blog entitled “The White House’s strange, illogical response to Netanyahu”
Also read yesterday’s article in the Washington Post (normally a fan of Obama) entitled “Obama needs to provide real answers to Netanyahu’s arguments”
The comments in these articles substantiated the titles.

You run along now Richard Fantin, you leftist Troll! is nothing but your standard loony Left rag from Israel. Sadly, radical leftist’s, like listeria, can be found afflicting every nation on earth.

Unfortunately, the word “Forward” has been hijacked by the Left as it sounds more ambiguous and benign than say, Marxist.
commented 2015-03-04 13:12:36 -0500
Richard experts have said Netanyahu didn’t lie. Now go back to You Tube clown.
commented 2015-03-04 12:43:11 -0500
Oh Richard, CBC and The Grauniad – i’m all ears – hahhahahahahahah

From the Jewish daily forward: 11 Lies Netanyahu told congress:

From the Guardian: Israel’s intelligence agency concluded that Iran was “not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons":

And here is my favorite of the latest news: CSIS flags Canadian online anti-Islam threat in Public Safety briefing – Yup, that’s right, all of you Ezra Levant fans foaming at the mouth for more surveillance and C51 are also targets of it.

Of course with Ezra Levant as a news source it’s not like I’d actually expect any of you to be informed.

It is Obama’s narcissism which did not and could not allow him to accept Benjamin Netanyahu’s invitation by House Speaker John Boehner to speak to a joint session of congress, with grace, dignity and detachment. Instead, he boycotted the speech and even claimed not to have watched it. This despite the fact he commented upon it shortly after it was given. It is this petulant little boy behavior of his which is the reflection of his narcissism. A narcissism which contributed to the addiction to all the adulation he had received in the first couple of years of his Presidency, fostered to a large part by the mainstream media who flattered and protected him.

Now, after six years of gross incompetency in office, even the MSM cannot protect him from himself and thus their protection and his reputation has gone far south. This over sensitive poltroon is more than aware of his diminished reputation but he clearly will not accept responsibility for it but rather will blame it on the GOP, Fox News, Bibi Netanyahu and anyone or anything else he perceives to be his political enemy.

All that Congress, the American people and indeed the free world can do to the end of his Presidency is to hold their breath and pray that this petulant, increasingly angry and frustrated little boy does completely destroy his country and world security by the progressively erratic nature of his unilateral executive actions.

The road to hell is paved with Obama suspect intentions.

Your doing a great job Brian, do not give up because of some people. You and your partners are telling how it is, where the others water the news down. It is good to hear and know what is happening in the world. Thank you , do not give up.

The right name for the Islamic State is … wait for it … the Islamic State. That is what they call themselves. That is their name.

Trudeau is Putin-bait. Despite the momentous efforts of the global left, surely Canadians aren’t stupid enough to elect Trudeau … are we?

Great podcast. I enjoy hearing dissenting opinions.

Justin is a know nothong. His father was even worse. He thought he knew everything . I met him as a student in London UK . He was a playboy dating all the models. We booed him out of the building.

just a suggestion, Brian: you really don’t need those rock interludes on a podcast. or to say “welcome back to the podcast” after one of these 20 second “bumpers.” it makes it sound like you’re having trouble adjusting to not being on the radio anymore. embrace the new medium! the dinosaurs are going extinct!
commented 2015-03-04 10:14:09 -0500
Great point Cathy. Brian – not a cool headline. It is based on your personal feelings and may sway people the wrong way. Please rethink that for the future.
commented 2015-03-04 09:59:34 -0500
Love your point of view.

Brian Brian Brian…. somehow some way can you get somebody somewhere to include a volume control for your pod casts ? They dam near blow the windows out of the house and by the time we get to the volume on the pc,

Sorry I can’t listen to your whole podcast but I disagree with your headline 100%. Please don’t print things like that. Many low info voters will just read the headlines and for that reason I will not be sharing it as I do with all your other articles. We need to point out why he will NOT be PM and prove why. Thanks

Do any liberal party members not get embarrassed by listening to him speak? What was the liberal party thinking? Everyone loved Pierre so much that his little boy would be a shoo-in? Yeah, not everyone loved his father, nor forgets what he did to the Canadian military. The legacy isn’t ‘all that’. And Justin doesn’t even live up to that. I think his father would be embarrassed; I know if he were my son, I’d be telling him to please, shut up and quit talking.
