Liberals in damage control as news of Khadr payday hits U.S. ahead of NAFTA talks

Brian LilleyArchive

Liberals are worried as it becomes clear that a majority of Canadians disagree with Trudeau making Omar Khadr a multi-millionaire but now they’re getting nervous that Americans might not like this deal either. 

Their nervousness is apparent as they get on Twitter to chastise Canadians like me and Conservative MPs who dare to talk to Americans about the dirty deal.

They’re even linking this to NAFTA talks and potential job losses for Canadians.

Watch as I show you the desperate behaviour coming from Liberals like Gerry Butts.

He started by complaining about Peter Kent’s piece in the Wall Street Journal and even accused the Conservatives of being hyper-partisan on Canada-US relations and launching an anti-Trudeau campaign in the US.

The most interesting tweet from Gerry came after Michelle Rempel’s appearance on Fox News where he asks if NAFTA came up.

Clearly, they’re worried.

But if the Liberals are now worried that this deal with Khadr could cost jobs, maybe they should have thought of that ahead of time?

So far the official reaction from the Trump administration is muted but that doesn’t mean the reaction from the American people will be muted.

On talk radio, on cable news, this is getting noticed and tweets like this will not help. Country legend Charlie Daniels, who has a sizeable social media following, tweeted:

“Justin Trudeau you've insulted the best friend your nation will ever have”

Amen to that Charlie.

The Liberals are in damage control as they realize this is going to hurt them and not just with voters in Canada but also quite likely with our ally, our friend, our neighbour, the one we are about to renegotiate that trade deal with.

So to summarize:
Khadr goes to Afghanistan to wage terror and kill westerners, not fight in a uniform, by which the UN says he has no rights.
Canada: He’s not a citizen.
Khadr kills an American and gets sent to Guantanamo.
Canad: He’s a citizen!
Jhadr is found guilty in a citizens court in the USA of murder and ordered to pay $134,000,000 in a civil suit.
Canada: He’s not a citizen!
Khadr get’s $10,500,000 settlement from the government of Canada for his rights being violated.
Canada: He’s a citizen!
Widow goes to a fellow, trusted, open for business, longest undefended border ally to get said $10,500,000 towards the civil suit owing of $134,000,000.
Canada: He’s not a citizen!
Pretty much sums up the progressive lefts response to illegal, UN criminal, no rights, Islamic Jihad these last 16 or so years.

Kelly Weber, they will. The snowball has just begun to roll.

What kind of incompetent idiot would pay a murdering Islamic terrorist (who killed an American soldier) 10.5 million on July 4 just before going into NAFTA negotiations with our most important trading partner ……. Impossibly stupid and treasonous moron.

Kelly Webber… Did you ever consider for a minute you’re not as close to those in-laws and friends that you speak of as you thought..
So when you say in-laws one must conclude that you married into their family and as such they don’t like or respect you enough to engage political discussion because of the leftist views you so dearly embrace… They are probably nice people who voted for Trump.
commented 2017-07-19 23:35:36 -0400
KELLY WEBER…..Of course your American brethren didn’t mention it, they are probably all leftist dems glued to CNN or MSNBC, sort of like you and your CBC lovefest. Maybe they didn’t mention it because they thought you might actually be embarrassed about our governments dismal performance on this matter. By the way, how is your girlfriend Hillary doing?
commented 2017-07-19 23:04:11 -0400
Kelly Weber, oh wow Kelly was that supposed to offend me!?
Face it, this is going to plague sock puppet Trudeau….he’s a one term blunder.

Kelly Weber, I have lots of American friends who have mentioned it.

Good for you. With the amount of time you spend on here bitching and moaning, I’m surprised you actually have a friend or two.

I have quite a few American friends and most of my inlaws reside in the US and they haven’t mentioned it.

I think Trudeau did this to get President Trump angry. If Trump is ticked off with Trudeau, then Trudeau can justify being at war with the POTUS and look like oh so much the nice guy, doing his duty. But Trump knows what game Dopey is playing and he knows how to discipline children!

Trudeau thought he’d have his voters behind him….but it backfired. He forgot only 39% voted for him and 38% don’t know who Khadr is.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt commented -" Goodale’s blood pressure was at an all time high! . I agree, he is a greasy crook "

“Greasy crook” – heh good call. The Canadian public picked this up too even if the Media soft soaped it.

Liberals – do not truly care about anything except power.

They are almost – but not quite – as corrupt as the UN.

It is a bad idea to give a terrorist 10 million dollars and an apology. If we give Justin Trudeau 10 million dollars and an apology will he go away!!!

I said this before Rebels..My opinion is trudeau and his grandiosity dementia goofballs are pretending to be stupid to shove their true agenda down our throats! Then they will say the usual passive aggressive horseshit to squirm out of it. Very glad to see and hear from our factually friendly news outlet’s in the States putting it out there about trudeau and his 29% trudeau worshiper goofballs for the World to see..Whadda bunch of goofs all the liberals are..You grandiosity demented liberals own this! All of ya’s!!! All of you liberal arseholes should be held accountable for your choices!!! NOT the People who did not vote for this demented perverted shit being forced onto the Everyday People of Canada!!

Prior to Trumps election while holding Obama’s hand Trudope mocks and dissed Trumps Presidential ambitions. Trudope led a ridiculous spectacle when Obama addressed the Canadian Parliament chanting 4 more years’ for Trumps arch nemesis. Trudope pulled Canadian Jets out of the US led coalition against ISIS. Trudope in defying Trump and is amassing unvetted Muslim terrorists creating a threat on the US’s Northern border. Rewarding a self confessed Gitmo terrorist with a $10.5 million wind fall for killing and maiming US soldiers. Never fear Trump likes Trudope because he’s takes his trash.

At least we will no longer have to listen to the Liberals tell us how “popular” Jr. is on the international stage. In the States he will be a pariah. If you thought Trump dissed him at the G20, you ain’t seen nothin yet. No state dinner for you!

David White, I had my moment of glee too, Goodale’s blood pressure was at an all time high! He looked demented during that announcement. I agree, he is a greasy crook and I’m sure he is relieved this didn’t go to trial.

Just another step in the plan to bring the country to its Knees. Justin has been trying very hard to insult Trump! Now blaming the opposition for speaking to the Americans just before NAFTA negotiations. Bullshit in the highest degree. The goal is to destroy the Canadian economy that is so dependent on the US. Once again Justin’s acting skills are being utilized. Justin Trudeau, Economic Marxist!! Easier to control the masses when everyone is jobless and broke!

How many dead Canadian are there, who died fighting Scum like Omar of the Death Cult called Islam and how many are living on the street because they cannot find work, due to war wounds.

Trudeau truly is Scum, fit only for the Sewer.

Trudope must watch his P&Q’s, one dumb “um ah” from the retard will cost more than 10.5 million. What do you think is Canada going to get corn holed?
commented 2017-07-19 19:05:26 -0400
At least I got one moment of glee throughout this entire sordid process. That was when Gucci Goodale blew a gasket about the leak of the $10.5 million payout when they trotted out to defend the indefensible. Greasy crook doing his best to spin the lies. Poison tongued jackass. The libs must be running the presses 24/7 firing out $100s in order to pay for their out of control spending.

Just ponder this folks… Libs in Ottawa spending OUT OF CONTROL. Libs in Ontario, DAMAGE IS DONE. Good luck to you folks. Dippers in Alberta….Ceci on the $ controls, ENOUGH SAID. And now to the emerging joy of an orange green sauce on the west coast, WHAT WERE YOU FOOLS THINKING????

Quebec is it’s own BASKET CASE.

There are a nimber of things this delayed backlash tells us – first is that Americans see this as a betrayal , which it is in spades, this is not something like exercisiong our sovereignty to opt out od some imperialist war they are entangled in, this is a breach of faith between allies on the same side against Islamic terror and Islamic contempt for our shared values.

Second this shows Canadians may not see this as betrayals (although many do) they have a cultural aversion to sleaze – to the dirty deal – to cheating – and the way the payout was done and sold was prime time Librano sleaze – this will NOT be forgotten in the collective Canadian consciousness regardless of all the spin and deflection and diversion the LPC toady media can spew. Canadians have been cucked and they don’t like it.

Finally in breaking this story ope it had to go to the US media to get prime time discussion – which is a damning condemnation of the manipulative biased state of Canadian media. News consumers here should be alarmed.

Any don’t forget…..khadr killing a medic in a war zone is a violation of the Geneva Convention.

Correction: should read

Billy Howard, I think he’s just plain stupid. He thought he had more Khadr groupies if the deal was ever made public, out touch with Canadians, and, he had Omar Alghabra whispering in his ear.

I guess it’s in the playbook, this pathetic inability to take responsibility for their own sht storm. I don’t think trying to throw it back at Conservatives this time, is going to work. I don’t think Canadians are going to buy this lie, they have said as much. Flail on Liberals, flail on.
Bunch of wannabees.

Billy an awful lot of Canadians are not paying attention and those are the people Justin is counting on to bullsht. The number of those completely and utterly mis or uninformed is dwindling – slightly. I think there are enough informed to fairly vocally call Justine out for any such volley back to Trump. I don’t think that lie would wash.
I think Justin is just plain dumb and his marxist handler,s the most influential being his boy Butts, are too full of themselves to see any day light at all these days. Delusional for sure.
So pathetic to watch their self righteous indignation, when they are so obviously to the entire world, responsible for this bad and stupid move.. Embarrassing for Canada.

If Omar used this money to finance an attack in Canada the libs would lay the blame on someone else other than themselves even though they gave him the money.

It is always someone elses fault with the left. And anyone who does not act like one of their mindless sheep is a horrible person. The left can go F*ck themselves.
