How Liberals use “coincidences” to get YOU to pay for their party fundraisers

Brian LilleyArchive

The latest questionable Liberal fundraising story comes courtesy of Trudeau’s Justice Minister billing taxpayers for her per diems -- breakfast lunch and dinner -- when flying to Toronto for a swanky and exclusive fundraiser.

This is part of a pattern with Liberals finding ways to get you to pay for their fundraising.

Recall back in April, Jody Wilson-Raybould, Canada’s top lawyer as Attorney General, attended a fundraiser for lawyers at the Bay Street offices of Tory’s law firm. She said she was there as an MP, not as Justice Minister, but few of us believed it.

Why would Bay Street lawyers shell out big money to meet a lowly MP from Vancouver and not discuss why they should be appointed as a judge?

The event netted the Liberals almost 10K yet Wilson-Raybould stuck taxpayers with the bill for per diems even as by dinner time she was on Liberal party business.

Watch as I show you the same pattern of “coincidences” with other Liberal Ministers like Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Minister of Veterans Affairs Kent Hehr and Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr to name a few.

They’re sending ministers across the country to attend fundraisers and then finding a way to have taxpayers foot the bill by coming up with an event for them to attend.

The pattern repeats itself time and again.

Liberal cabinet ministers don’t go anywhere without holding a fundraiser and as long as they have a government event, you and I pick up the travel tab and everything else.

A government that campaigned on change can’t get away with saying the other guys did it. Besides, I’ve never seen such a well orchestrated pattern in all my time covering politics.

Event, fundraise, repeat and have taxpayers eat the cost.

Nice work if you can get it, but now that the Liberals have been caught, they need to end this questionable practice.

Nothing but ongoing corruption since October 2015.

Don’t worry Sean you will not be spared. Fewer jobs, higher interest rates, people losing their homes, no economy, no hope to retire unless you are a politician or beaurocrat (elite). Funny watching Elmer Fudd McCallum saying we need more immigrants because Canadians are not having enough babies. What you fucking Liberal fools don’t get is that Canadians are not having babies because they cannot afford it because of high taxes to bring in immigrants families of 10 that live on welfare. You Libs are all the dumbest people on the planet.

Once it becomes apparent to you that the political ideology practiced by those who wear brand liberal identity are in fact cultural marxists, Fabian socialists, globalists and sundry other leftist indoctrinates, it should not be surprising that that fundraising mimics their ideological proselytizing – primarily this is subversion and elicits a number of subversive tactics from fabian sublimation to Alinsky gangsterism.

“Liberals” seek to subvert – where Conservatism acts to convert – one uses logic and free will to seek its end result where the other uses lies and deception.

Liberal dogmas are based failed logic necessitating deception to sell them.

Lieberals entitled to their entitlements! Marc Lalonde’s credo that all monies earned by Canadians belongs to the Lieberals. This is what is playing out here!

Why most people treat politicians of all stripes with distain is because they refuse to draw a line between party and government business. A party does not run government ( unless you are in China and other dictatorial regimes ) , elected officials do. How do you think Americans feel when their President goes out on the campaign trail on behalf of his party and speaks on behalf of Clinton and denigrates Trump and Republicans. While on the government payroll, elected to represent ALL the people, he should stop taking a paycheck and expensing trips involving campaigning.

“Entitled to their entitlements” and “the usual operation methinks”.
I am surprised that the Muslims would have any connection with these piggies at the trough. I thought they were averse to pork in all its forms.

Please ignore Sean Pissant, he is a paid troll. He is not worth a response.

Come on rules are not for the left. They are above such things. We should just be happy they corruptly use our money , it is a small price to pay for them to tell us how to live and what to say from their ivory towers.
The left has such an ego , it makes me sick.

Marty Ashfield:
As far as I am concerned, your literary genius just outdid Shakespeare with these of your words and I could not agree more:
“And Trudeau should be referred to as ‘that POS Trudeau’.
God I hate that asshole and cannot stand to see him or listen to him, uh um um ah you know ah um.”

sean penson once again proves his/her/it’s moral compass, and mental state, is so messed up that he/she/it would not be able to find it’s way from their parents basement.

@sean Penson… your own homework Sean….fundraising is subject to public disclosure. Conservative party is building up a war chest to defeat the liberals after one term…on track and on goal…and unlike the liberals all of it from individual doners and squeeky clean.
commented 2016-09-14 16:12:49 -0400
SEAN PENSON you are such an asshole.
Hope nobody that reads your asinine posts ever gets to bump into you in person. I sure would like to. But I don’t like dark damp moldy basements, so as long as you hide out there you should be relatively safe.

Next they will be fundraising with tax payer money filled paper bags slipped under the table. On November 5th last year I said, “Let the scandals begin.” Now we know why the Liberals are bragging about their successful fund raising of late and filled party coffers.

None of these jerks should be referred to or called ‘the Honorable’ so and so. None of them are honorable. Instead lets refer to them as ‘the lying Liberal asshole’ so and so.
And Trudeau should be referred to as ‘that POS Trudeau’.
God I hate that asshole and cannot stand to see him or listen to him, uh um um ah you know ah um.

Oh well. All is fair in politics!

How’s the CPC doing for cash? With a new electoral system, and a dead Albera, I bet things have dried up, huh?

Good reporting Brian, but the Liberals will never end their corrupt practices even after being caught because the MSM won’t push them on it, and if they do, it’s “just an honest mistake”. But they’ll keep doing it time and again until caught again, apologize, then repeat. They have no qualms scamming the taxpayer.
Libranos at their best.
