Justin Trudeau plunges in the polls — so he lashes out in year-end interview

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Angus Reid published a new poll and it’s so bad for Justin Trudeau. 

With less than a year before an expected election, the number of people who favour Trudeau has fallen to 35 per cent, down from 46 per cent this time a year ago. For the first time since October 2015, he is no longer seen as the national party leader who would be the best prime minister.

Of the 35 per cent who support Trudeau, eight per cent strongly support him, and 27 per cent sort of support him. So, that eight per cent would be the staff of the CBC, and anti-pipeline activists and immigration consultants probably.

But look at those who dislike him:

Fifty-eight per cent of Canadians don’t like him; but 39 per cent say they strongly dislike him. As in, they’re not just tired of him or bored. They actively, deeply loathe the guy.

Do you think Quebeckers who live near the illegal border crossing at Roxham Road are lukewarm? How about construction workers in the Atlantic who lost a $15.7 billion construction project called the Energy East pipeline, because of Trudeau’s obsession with carbon dioxide? How about any other working men that Trudeau just blithely calls rapists in waiting?

Now, it is inevitable that, over time, a prime minister’s support can wane, as he uses up political capital to get things done. But what has he got done?

I suppose he’s legalized marijuana — though with a lot of screw-ups. Can you name anything else?

There was a romance around Justin Trudeau — the media felt it the hardest, but the public shared it.

But here we are, three years later, and I think a lot of people who were swept up in it have fallen out of love with Trudeau; and when you fall out of love you start to notice the things that you put up with that now you can’t stand.

Now, in his year-end interview with the stenographers at Canadian Press, he smears everyone who’s against him as a bigot. And the media is absolutely going to go along with it:

Justin Trudeau says he's confident he'll win re-election next fall by sticking to a positive, thoughtful approach to difficult issues, in contrast to the Conservatives whom he accuses of resorting to bumper sticker slogans that prey on voters' fears and prejudices.”


While those ideas might be "popular at first blush in a populist speech," Trudeau predicted that Quebecers will change their minds once they "actually dig into the real world consequences of allowing and encouraging discrimination based on someone's religion within a free society."

He argued that Canadian have become "more aware of the dangers of populism, the consequences of populism.”

Hang on — so the guy who bans pro-lifers from getting summer jobs grants is now for religious freedom? Got it.

The dangers of populism isn’t on the minds of Quebeckers. The dangers of illegal immigration, and even terrorism — that is.

So, after going on about how he’s better and nicer and sweeter than his opponents, he basically says just kidding:

"I'm always going to be very, very sharp any time there are clear distinctions in policy, in approach, in the way someone indicates their tendency to perhaps divide Canadians or exploit faultlines rather than pulling together.

"I will make no apologies for being very passionate, sometimes overly enthusiastic, in the way I engage in a robust debate. But I am, as much as possible, going to keep it on a substantive level.”

Got it. Passionate. That’s what he calls it when he attacks people — that’s "passion." When an opponent does it, it’s dangerous. When he disagrees, it’s not mean, it’s "sharp." When others disagree, it’s bigotry.

Look, I know CTV and Canadian Press and CBC buy this stuff.

But 58 per cent of us no longer do.

And a campaign built on smearing us as bigots, scolding us, and rewarding journalists to spin — I’m just not sure that’s going to work — are you?

NEXT: Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to build a wall, and make Mexico pay for it. But judging by today's headlines, that isn't going to happen after all.

Or is it? Joel Pollak of Breitbart News joins me to make sense of it all.

Here is some progress being made from findings of STOP THE STEAL and the President’s commission on voting fraud.

One point five million in Los Angeles County alone.

Glenn Craig,

And the proof of that voter fraud and illegal immigrant vote is where exactly to come up with such specific numbers AND also take into account the same voter fraud that would have happened with Trump as well?

I will wait.

I volunteered to help the movement STOP THE STEAL on the night of the election and for my sins was granted access to the best database monitoring returns available.

The DEMOCRAT party has been infamous for voter fraud ever since the 1860s and that election was no different.

The attempts to derail the Electoral College count after the election were ALL attempts to get the election in total scrapped because of the level of voter fraud that they exposed….in other words….the democrats tried to stop Trump by admitting the extent of voter and more importantly VOTE COUNT fraud that took place.

Trump set up a commission to fix this and was stone walled in all blue states.

Nicholas Conklin….I don’t give a damn if you believe that….your vote really doesn’t count all that much….MILLIONS OF OTHERS DO BELIEVE IT

This guy is an asshole of the highest order. He blames Harper for setting the population against immigration, when he, the asshole, has done it all by himself in just a few months time. Come one, come all. ‘Our borders are open for those that seek shelter from the storm.’ Harper never said of did any of this. JT is an asshole and it’s most likely stretched as well. He has got to go. His priorities are completely mangled to the point of ‘Fubar’. The 39% they say that hates this bastard has just went to 40% and climbing.

Suggest everyone read a March 23 2011 national post column by David Frum on the disastrous legacy of Pierre Trudeau and how it took almost 30 years for succeeding Prime Ministers to dig out from under the mountain of debt he incurred. I see a definite parallel between Trudeau senior and junior-how they love to spend, hate the west, play the provinces against one another, and cozy up to dictators. October 2019 can’t come soon enough. We’ve seen this act before. Hated it then, still hate it now.

Justin has to be one of Canada’s worst prime ministers.

One of? He is without a doubt the worst PM ever. In fact he is without a doubt the stupidest national leader in world history.

My question is this: why does Justin Trudeau still have 35% support?
Because Canadians are self-absorbed, venal, short-sighted, conniving, amoral, immoral, perverse, devious, tyrannical, ruthless, selfish, greedy, faithless, treacherous, perfidious, rapacious, degenerate, hypocritical, cold blooded, arrogant, cantankerous, cynical, indolent, irresponsible, miserly, patronizing, pompous, sullen, timid, vacuous, vulgar and boorish.

Hence, " although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them".
Romans 1:32

As a wise Canadian once said, “If the people haven’t suffered enough , it’s their god-given right to suffer some more”.

Which Political Party is really going to put the boots to Trudeau and his corrupt crew?
commented 2018-12-20 23:03:15 -0500
Grandiosity refers to an unrealistic sense of superiority—a sustained view of oneself as better than others that causes the narcissist to view others with disdain or as inferior—as well as to a sense of uniqueness: the belief that few others have anything in common with oneself and that one can only be understood by a few or very special people. It also occurs in reactive attachment disorder.

Hmm..sound familiar?
commented 2018-12-20 21:49:11 -0500
Lou I…….respectfully, justin trudeau is hands down the worst PM ever. History will prove this unequivocally.
commented 2018-12-20 21:41:43 -0500
Time to take the kiddie gloves off and put the boots to Trudeau and his crew..figuratively speaking of course..

This is now the time for the other Political Party’s should be going in for the kill…again figuratively speaking…Do not let up until Trudeau’s crew is like Wynnes crew…NO status!..and no frigging hearing from them again…I heard Wynne flappin her chops about a month ago..Thank goodness it was only 30 seconds and no repeats from the msm media whores.

Ah come guys, its not fair to make fun of Nicholas’s name.
Its not fair to call him Santy Claus or Nick the Pr*ck. Not Big Nicky, the little tricky d*cky. Not Little Slick Nick the T*t. Not even Nick the little sh*t.

Lying apparently. Or just wrong. Either way you are not man enough to admit it or even address it.

Y’all notice that Chicken Shit Man, Nicky, has learned well from his patron-The Groper- and won’t answer questions because he knows he is WRONG. Don’t you love how he thinks no one notices what a gutless wonder he is. Hiding like a snowshoe hare.

“The Snowshoe Hare is believed to always be white, but that isn’t the case. They are white when weather conditions warrant it so that they can easily blend into their surroundings. However, they are also brown for part of the year so that they have the best chances of remaining well camouflaged.”

Try it Nick. You can do it:

I notice that the resident leftist, regressive troll, little nicky conked on the head, has all the liberal talking points and name calling down. There must be a hand book for the stupid ones to memorize, maybe the troll is going to run for office. This clown also has the leftard trick of using the tactic of projection, as in…..“so what your saying is”, or “you’re not Canadian if…”
Its pathetic, childish and exactly whats expected from the low information voter.
Further, what the troll does not realize is that you get the government you deserve, and voting in this empty vessel will take this country down hard. I don’t wish for this, but for those that so admire boy trudeau and the globalist parasite liberal party, you will get what others have warned about.
A reminder to this coward troll with the fake names

Gosh Nicky, for a guy with a name like yours, I thought you would be full of Christmas cheer. You know….ho…ho…ho…Merry Christmas!
Well, the Dems might impeach Trump, but that didn’t work out so well for the Republicans when they impeached Slick Willy.
Say you believe Mueller is going to get Trump? I bet you believe in the Easter Bunny and that Wile E. Coyote will catch the Road Runner too.

Robert McClelland,

All hat proves is that you are an idiot.

You do realize that Canada and America have different size populations right? Also 35% compared to 47% isn’t bad at all considering all the whining that goes on here about how Trudeau has destroyed Canada and we are now a Muslim country.

Are. You. Serious? Did I read that correctly? Is that supposed to be funny? Is that a Jedi mind trick?
What gives?
I’ll let you think about basic math for an hour then I’ll respond.

Robert McClelland,

Trudeau isn’t going to be impeached like Trump most likely will be once Dems are in control of the House and Trudeau also doesn’t have a whole team of people that worked for him that are going to jail or will be going to jail because of what he instructed them to do.

I thought that the only poll that matters is the one on election day or that’s what I have been told on here.

Budgets balance themselves…..he still has not renounced that! If sock boy thinks that foolish statement was supposed to be wise and substantive, I have no use for anything he says in a debate. The cannabis is still leaking out after 3.5 years as PM. Nothing he says or does is of any value to Canadians…..he just needs to disappear. For him, being PM is just an upgrade of his trust fund lifestyle….now he has a higher income and he gets to travel around a lot with his family, with a security detail. Now to keep this upgraded trust fund lifestyle, all he has to do is talk out the side of his mouth for George Soros.
