CAUGHT! Liberal cabinet minister LeBlanc took free flights on lobbyist’s corporate jet

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


The Libranos are back, all right.

It's bad enough that Justin Trudeau hired two Filipino nannies, and put them on the the government payroll.

But what about when he takes pay-offs secretly from corporate lobbyists? Like when he took a free vacation from the Aga Khan, the billionaire who owns a private island in The Bahamas.

I’m a lot more worried about secret gifts like that than I am about the public grifting.

Which brings me to the news of the day. I read about it in Blacklock’s, which is a small independent news website based in Ottawa, one of the few media in this country that’s not on the take for Trudeau’s bailout:

Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc used a federal contractor’s private plane to attend medical check-ups. LeBlanc in a filing with the Commissioner of Ethics said he traveled with his wife, a New Brunswick judge, aboard a J.D. Irving Ltd. corporate jet.

“The personal travel was pre-approved by the Commissioner for a medical consultation as per advice from the treating doctor,” wrote LeBlanc. “I was accompanied by my spouse.”

LeBlanc’s wife is Provincial Court Judge Jolène Richard of Moncton. The Minister last April 26 took medical leave from cabinet for treatment of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma but is seeking a seventh term as MP for Beauséjour, N.B.

Must be nice, huh? The rest of us have to wait in line for medical care.

But if Trudeau can take a free flight and a free vacation, and if he’s defiant about it, that sets the precedent for his cabinet.

Furthermore, as Blacklock's goes on to report, LeBlanc had already promised he wouldn’t deal with the Irvings if he were in cabinet. There's more, as I'll tell you TONIGHT.

(Of course, at The Rebel we've already reported on LeBlanc's connections with five out of six recent judicial appointments in New Brunswick.)

Justin Trudeau is corrupt — so bad, he was convicted of breaking the Conflict of Interest act. And so his senior staff know that’s fine, that’s how it’s done. 

All this is why I had to laugh at this tweet today from Justin Trudeau:

Flying can be expensive and stressful, and you deserve to be treated with respect if your flight is overbooked, delayed, or something happens to your bags. That’s why we’ve implemented clear and fair air passenger rights – and they come into effect today.

Really? When was the last time Justin Trudeau flew commercial? As Sheila Gunn Reid showed a while back, Trudeau racked up $384,000 in food and booze (including specialty vodkas) in just five flights. How is that even possible?

There are a hundred reasons why Justin Trudeau is the worst prime minister in a generation.

But being corrupt, being a Librano — that’s got to be one of the most infuriating, don’t you think?

NEXT: Keean Bexte joins me to talk about his latest reporting in Washington, DC, when he once again had a revealing encounter with Rep. Ilhan Omar.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Another example of what that man of integrity, Jean Chretien, called, “The usual operation”. Usual for Liberals, of course. The rest of us pay our own way. Oh, and I guess we are paying their way was well.

- The fish rots from the head down & there’s no greater rotten fish head than Trudeau. I don’t think Team Trudeau can wake up in the morning without some form of corruption being involved.

- Keean’s video has been all over the place. Great work. Leftist politicians have been getting a pass from the media for ages. They aren’t used to being called out or asked questions.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they offered that guy to be a member of the Mile High club.
Honestly, with a Prime Minister’s itinerary so censored, is it big news a guy took a flight?
I bet this is what JT’s itinerary looks like uncensored:
8am-sleeping
9am-sleeping
10am-sleeping
11am-Steak & Lobster breakfast
12pm-bathroom break
1pm-Caviar & golden sundae lunch
2pm-Arrive at work
2:15pm-sexual assault
2:30pm-meeting with terrorist
2:45pm-sexually assaulting a terrorist
3pm-Photo-op
6pm-Steak & Lobster dinner
7pm-bath in taxpayer money
8pm-bed time.

Keith Barnes,
well said and 100% accurate.
sadly these words are wasted on canadians whose only concerns are shopping and their entitlements.

WHO CARES???
NO ONE CARES JUST AS THEY DIDN’T CARE ABOUT THE CORRUPTION, THEFT, REMOVAL OF OUR BORDERS AND ALL LAWS PERTAINING TO THEM, THE NEVER ENDING PANDERING TO ISLAM WHICH NOW CONTROLS/WRITES OUR LAWS , THE FACT WE NOW HAVE NO DEMOCRACY, NO LEADER, NO COURT/JUDGE/MILITARY/ POLITICIAN IN THE LAND WORKING FOR OR PROTECTING CANADIANS OR CANADA-NOW A POST NATIONAL STATE!
besides, which media outlet besides the REBEL AND SPENCER FERNANDO will report this.
trudeau , it appears, no matter how vile, treasonous, tyrannical, islamic pandering, racist, corrupt, lying, thieving, despicable, dangerous, and mentally ill he is, IS GOING NO WHERE IN OCTOBER BECAUSE CANUKS ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR ENTITLEMENTS as we see here in ontario, AND WILL VOTE FOR HIM BECAUSE OF ALL THE LIES, FAKE PROMISES HE MAKES LEADING UP TO THE ELECTION.
WHEN YOU GET NOTHING AFTER THE ELECTION other than vilified, attacked , threatened, raped, pillaged, abused , ignored, and BECAUSE THERE IS NO MORE MONEY, JOBS, ETC. well, then you all just MIGHT wake up however IT WILL BE TOO LATE- in fact it ALREADY IS TOO LATE!

The truth is, we are in the midst of a Civil War but we are all to dammed complacent to realize it. Trudeau working on orders from the UN is instigating the actions that will end up in the demise of the White Working Class. He is importing the enemy as Migrants who are protected from our condemnation by laws that forbid us from talking bad about them.

Remember, silent Lambs die that way…Quietly.
Are we going to do the same…Quietly.

The liberals continue to gorge on the public dime. There are no rules for the liberal elite. The empty look in their eyes reveals the depth of the lost and entitled. They serve themselves at the expense of those who were foolish enough to vote for them.

Hey! Is there a contest going on as to which Liberal can run up the biggest bar bill on the taxpayer’s dime???

Double hit for Rebel on Laura Ingraham on Fox.
Frequent Rebel contributor (though not lately) Raheel Raza was on a panel with Laura, and of course, current Rebel reporter Keean Bexte’s video was featured.
Rebel’s hitting the big time.

Ezra’s show was posted 4 hr ago and there are only 10 comments. I’ve seen a good show like tonight’s have 4 or 5 times this number of comments in 4 hours.
Could it be that many people are enjoying the summer or a more sinister reason could be You tube or Google is adjusting things. They do that with Facebook but they can’t hide things on a open site .

Ezra, in your Letters segment, you said that you have only seen Scheer GET TOUGH in two cases: MP Cooper defending Conservatives at a free speech conference
and he also got tough with the Rebel defending Free Speech.
Actually there are three more examples of Scheer’s toughness.
1. He demoted Bernier for wanting to give Canadian’s lower Dairy prices.
2. He didn’t like MP Kellie Leitch’s type of diversity.
3. He thought Brad Trost was too Conservative. (code for too Religious)

I couldn’t believe it when the liberals immediately bought Porsche Cayenne and Lexus suvs for cabinet members. When Amarjeet Sohi spent $800,000 to renovate an existing office space. That’s double my house. And it just piled on from there. This pile of shit might make the Tower of Babel look like a sand castle

Nice to see they used the Keann’s clip on Hannity’s and Laura Ingraham’s show tonight.

Keean is pretty good and very persistent. Watch out for Antifa
commented 2019-07-16 21:26:32 -0400
The problem with Keeane’s reporting is that it has gone “viral”. The Dems, American MSM, and globalist billionaires are now on the phone to Trudeau to get the Rebel banned and Bexte subsequently “un-credentialed” sooner rather than later.
commented 2019-07-16 21:18:56 -0400
What a great point Keean made about American press freedom. What we should do, since our press are too chicken, is grill our politicians relentlessly. THEY WORK FOR US! We aren’t their serfs. We deserve plain answers, not silence or nonsense. This also applies to Ezra’s monologue. Squandering taxpayers’ money while cheating veterans is worse than criminal. I feel like Captain Kirk when he would say, “I want answers, mister!”
commented 2019-07-16 21:18:07 -0400
It’s worth noting that when I searched for the Charter using Google, it wouldn’t come up. Just some general overview put out by Trudeau. I had to use a little known browser to access it.
commented 2019-07-16 21:16:11 -0400
Ezra, we do have the same freedom of speech as the US, you must assert it, not go along with the left’s notion that we don’t. In the Cdn Bill of Rights #1d is Free Speech . . . .

https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/c-12.3/FullText.html

. . . . and in the Charter #26 states that nothing in the Charter takes away from rights we had prior.

26. The guarantee in this Charter of certain rights and freedoms shall not be construed as denying the existence of any other rights or freedoms that exist in Canada.

The Aga Khans island is the one with the Orphanage where children from all over the world are taken in and used as sex toys by the Aga Khans close friends? Trudeau has visited there and it was not for his health. Remember, he flew out there in the Aga Khans private jet.
commented 2019-07-16 20:21:21 -0400
Corruption is the norm for governments led by Quebec-based politicians: Senior, Chrétien, Martin, Junior. And…yes…even the “Conservative”, Mulroney.
