Jean Chretien tells Justin Trudeau to surrender to China. Will Trudeau do it?

Rebel Staff

Jean Chretien, the most successful Liberal Prime Minister in memory, had some advice for Justin Trudeau, the weakest Liberal Prime Minister in memory.

It was advice on how to deal with China, which has been holding two Canadians hostage for the better part of a year.

Chretien's advice was simple: Just pay the ransom:

Chrétien proposes cancelling Meng’s extradition case to unfreeze relations with China

(Just a reminder: Meng Wanzhou is a senior executive of the massive Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, and she also happens to be the daughter of the company’s founder. She was arrested in Vancouver, at the request of the United States, for various financial crimes. Meng is fighting that extradition, and is out on bail but can’t leave Vancouver.)

The proposal – which has not been formally presented to the Trudeau government – would meet Chinese President Xi Jinping’s demand that Ms. Meng be freed to return home before Beijing would reconsider reprisals it has taken against Canada.

It’s a total abject surrender: renounce everything the Canadian government has said about the rule of law — and all that has to happen before China releases the hostages or undoes its trade bans on canola and other imports?

Wow, is that the advice of a man who ran the Canadian government for a decade? Is that really how Chretien himself operated in the countless large and small negotiations and disagreements and compromises that a prime minister faces?

Of course not. Chretien is in fact a fairly shrewd negotiator.

But you have to understand, that he is a negotiator for the other side:

He's been a lobbyist for China since he resigned as Canada's prime minister.

Aside from the ethics of that, do you think that Jean Chretien didn’t take any steps, didn’t have any conversations, in advance of stepping down as prime minister, that he was going to lobby China? Or do you think there’s, oh, a teeny-tiny chance that, while he was still our prime minister, making decision on security and diplomacy and trade, that he was already setting up his post-employment gig with them

So imagine asking Chretien’s opinion for what to do about China, and treating him as some sort of credible elder statesman — instead of a total shill that he is. 

The one guy who could help — the one guy whose phone calls get answered — is Donald Trump. Trudeau mocks him at every turn, so Trump doesn’t waste his time on our man-child president.

What would Stephen Harper do if he were prime minister now? Well, I don’t know — and neither does Trudeau, because he hates him too. Which is a shame. Because I bet Harper would put aside any partisanship and give some real advice. He might even try to go over there and help. And if you think that’s a bad idea, well, what’s your alternative? 

TONIGHT I'll tell you a few things I think Trudeau should do. There are lots of options, in respect to trade and tariffs, visas — for example,  there are something like 100,000 Chinese nationals in our universities, so maybe decline to renew their student visas?

Because right now, what Trudeau is doing isn’t working. And what Chretien proposes doing is China’s plan, not ours.

NEXT: To talk more about this, I'm joined by one of our favourite guests, lawyer Manny Montenegrino

Ron, I forgot about Ford. Well I guess anything is possible in Canada in 2019.

Ezra, Manny, you didn’t mention Harper is the Chairman of the International Democrat Union, an organization of conservative and populist democratic governments and opposition parties covering most of the non-dictatorial world – a non-despot UN, if you will. It isn’t said enough that when Trudeau belittles Harper, he’s belittling a man respected around the democratic world, unlike PM Socks ‘n hair.

john mac., and now dippy wonder says spying on canada and the usa is and should be legal. uncanadian as it gets. nice going liberals. disgusting as ever.

Jean Chretien is a private citizen and a sycophant China admirer and should shut up and mind his own business. No one asked for his opinion, only the MSM would shill for him. Not surprising that Trudeau is also a great devotee of the Chinese dictatorship, as for Freehand she also take her foot out from her mouth only to replace it with the other foot and set forth to get a new name for the little potato! What a bunch of imbeciles the progressive left is.

Keith, watched the link you posted………………..

Hyacinth, I think the best part of Elle’s Rant is the fact that she says it in a language that even Liberals and Socialists can understand.
I do not see the Police going after Trudeau, he’s their Boss.

I wonder what the rules are on that Ron? It may be too late, and that’s probably what the party thinks.
I believe you are right, although Ford did it. They don’t have a replacement anyway.

The sad part is Trudeau gave it to Scheer and he gave it back to Trudeau.

The people of Canada do have a choice and if the word was put out and they were all made aware of the alternative, then they would all vote for Maxime Bernier and the PPC.

The PPC needs a platform…….Ezra?

What a interesting and challenging scenario or concept you raised with Manny, Ezra!
I extrapolated it to – What would I do if Jihadi-Justin-Groper came to me for real advice on how to save Canada.
Well, let me stop laughing first…
I know that my immediate, emotional response to that question…after the laughter…would be to curse him out, then punch him out, then curse him out some more…
But I would have to sit down and ponder – a long time – what sincere advice I would give…if the idea wasn’t so ridiculous, unlikely and never going to happen!
Of course the question asks itself, how much cogent adult conversation could Jihadi-Justin-Groper actually absorb? We’ve all seen Captain Stumble ‘speak’ when he’s off script…too many times!
As for Little Lord Fauntleroy asking Prime Minister Stephen Harper for advice? LOL!

I’m not sure how much I like being forced to think that deeply on things like that…although I suppose THEREBEL should be proud of kicking people in the intellectual/moral butt like they do…regularly!
Someone’s gotta do it, Papa.

Keith, watched the link you posted, it begs the question “why hasn’t the RCMP stepped in and charged Trudeau?” We know why the “official opposition” is quiet – the Dippers are in total agreement with Trudeau and Scheer is a spineless Liberal Lite.
commented 2019-06-15 12:42:40 -0400
Besides anyone else they chose wouldn’t be going against selling out to China, Islam or the UN, they would still be badmouthing Trump and would still have to be in agreement with screwing over our nation, so we would still be up the creek without a paddle. The entire party except for one or two MP’s are corrupt, certainly the back room boys are.
commented 2019-06-15 12:37:35 -0400
I wonder what the rules are on that Ron? It may be too late, and that’s probably what the party thinks. Staring from scratch at this point would be too chaotic for their party line which has already been established. The old guard have invested a lot of time and money in the wrong guy, I think they( and us) are stuck with him.
commented 2019-06-15 11:24:59 -0400
Holy, Elle is ticked! Elle is correct, the gays had better grow some wings, and yeah, the vote is already rigged with voting cards to non citizen migrants and you know they will muck with the count. Not just all the ‘other’ parties don’t have a chance, but ALL the parties but the Liberal party hasn’t a chance. Scheer hasn’t a chance either.
commented 2019-06-15 10:48:42 -0400
LIZA ROSIE….Did you see this one?…. Every one should see this, it makes you feel a little better and Elle has a knack for saying what we are all thinking.

Trudeau is effen up REAL BAD Elle’s Place?

Get lost Cretin! Sadly Justin will probably do what he says as Justin is a weak willed worm.
Alberta Maga, Not even Justin would do what Chretien suggested!
Canada has an “Official Treaty” with close to 40 countries, including 7 close allies. Trudeau wouldn’t dare tell these countries to F-off in order to possibly be friends with an uncivilized country.
There seems to be a common mental deficiency with Canada’s French Prime Ministers.

“Chretien is a has been! Chretien is a foot note. One can’t take him serious! The jury is still out on what kind of Prime Minister Chretien was. Maybe when future historians cast of their Political Correctness cloak, we might get the real truth of what corruption Chretien really was involved in!”

What kind of Prime Minister?
These links give clues, but remember CBC always candy-coats anything to do with the Liberals so definitely assume that it was worse.

“While Jean Chretien spoke at a Liberal fundraiser, some 700 demonstrators were confronted by officers banging wooden batons on riot shields, kicking and ripping signs from the hands of protesters, many of whom were the same students pepper-sprayed at last year’s APEC summit. After last year’s melee, Jean Chretien reacted to the Mounties’ handling of pickets by saying that at least officers didn’t use baseball bats.”

“The prime minister, a self-described “little guy from Shawinigan,” defends his actions. “Some people came my way… and I had to go, so if you’re in my way,” says Chrétien before driving away."

We have a bargaining tool with China… Ms Weng.
Susan, If we let Weng go in exchange for China treating us nice, we would be breaking a Treaty with 7 allies, not just the US. They could turn Canada into a 3rd world country as fast as we could say Justin Trudeau.
commented 2019-06-15 00:33:58 -0400
A real PM would inform the Chicoms that:
1. unless our citizens are released unharmed in 2 days all Chinese ships will be turned back to China and nothing that China produces will be sold in Canada.
2. All student visas will be rescinded for Chinese nationals.
3. All Chinese nationals will be forced to leave the country within another 2 days.
4. Canada will work with other matins to flow suit.

If several nations would do this China would be finished as a bully power. The are on the verge of collapse already. Why do we allow Chinese students here to study anyway? The commies use whatever is learned to build the nation’s power against us. No communist students or nationals of any kind should ever be allowed to enter our country. We didn’t let the Nazi’s in. Why would we let the commies in?

Chretien and all the rest of the Liberal leaders, since Trudeau the 1st misled this country, were extreme left wing Marxist. They followed and still are following Hitler’s Mien Kemph,(spelling?) it is their bible.
In these days of enlightenment the white working class are no longer needed because the requirement of having the ability to think has gone, all the thinking is now done by computers. Why pay workers who can reason and calculate, large wages, when this labour can be done at half the cost by hiring those who speak foreign languages and have sharp knives.
We have two choices…Resist or Rot.

Good point Stephan,
That is exactly what any self respecting nation should and would do.
If this was 70 or so years ago the Liberals would be doing deals with Nazi Germany no questions asked because of economic expediency.
This would be the same behaviour they show currently as they grovel and take orders from the ChiComs.
