“Like fawning reporters in North Korea,” Canada’s Media Party touts “dumb” Trudeau’s quantum computing shtick

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

So Justin Trudeau was giving away more of your money over the weekend: $50 million dollars to the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. It’s a place for smart people, and Justin Trudeau isn’t terribly smart.

So he’d memorized something smart to say: basically the first few sentences about quantum computer on Wikipedia.

And then he asked the media to ask him a question about it. He’d been practising hard! But no, people wanted to ask about the budget, the Islamic State, whatever.

Well, he was going to say his lines no matter what. So he did. It was sort of pitiful.

But the Liberals embedded in the media were delighted. They went to work. Maclean’s magazine says Trudeau “stunned physicists.”

Slate. Fortune magazine. Vanity Fair. Over 200 news reports. I'll read you some of the really fawning ones. They sound like jokes but they're real.

Probably 100 million people saw that video. Probably 99.9 million of them didn’t see the transparent request from Trudeau trying to tee up his clip.

I’m not mad that Trudeau is a show-off, or that the foreign press fell for this set up.

I’m mad at the Canadian media, who saw Trudeau ask to be asked; who saw a real reporter try to ask something else, and be pushed aside by Trudeau’s little drama sketch. And then who ran with it, like fawning reporters in North Korea, crying tears of joy with how brilliant Dear Leader is.

These are the reporters we rely on to tell us the truth.

So did Justin ever answer that reporter’s legitimate question? I’m guessing not which makes this spoiled brat’s little stand-up routine even more annoying considering that Canadians actually want a real answer instead of his constant BS.

I despise phoney people and Trudy just rose to the top of the list.

Scientists do indeed have a difficult time explaining quantum computing. So would Trudeau but what he does in the clip is provide a straightforward and, yes, somewhat simplistic explanation of quantum computing in relation to conventional computers. His simple articulation is exactly what has been so appealing to so many people. It has proven to be a surprise because it comes from a politician.
commented 2016-04-20 14:29:54 -0400
The human brain is a quantum computer. The right side of the brain can communicate with the left side with no electrical connection. Scientists can’t explain how it works, so I doubt Justin can since he doesn’t have one

If a REBEL reporter is ever at a Trudeau news conference in the future, I hope s/he will remember to ask the Prime Moron how quantum computing has improved xxx over the last decade (whatever the issue is).
commented 2016-04-19 23:32:58 -0400
I heard Ezra mention this in passing on another story, so googled “trudeau quantum computing” to see what it was all about. Page after page of MSM and left wing alternate news sites, both Canadian and foreign, gushing about clever Justin.

Only by adding “rebel” to the search parameters did I come to the only story that showed the truth. The fact that none of the reporters present, nor their organizations, saw fit to publish anything but the Justin PR shows just how corrupt they all are.

Nothing but propaganda departments for the left. They might as well be Soviet era Pravda and TASS.
commented 2016-04-19 21:46:55 -0400
Justin’s pathetic and abject pleading for approval, and him setting it up like that, seems indicative of someone with serious self esteem issues and other emotional problems. Can this goof of a selfie PM make any more of a fool of himself and embarrass Canadians any more than he already has?

Wait. That’s probably not a good question to ask…

This clown is independently wealthy, is paid almost 300,000 dollars a year more than the average schmoe, was elected to said job with no quals, is adulated ad nauseum by a biased press and still wants MORE LOVE! MORE ADMIRATION! Okay, his druggy whore mom walked out on him. I’m sure that still hurts but HEY! MAN THE FUCK UP and start acting like world leader and not some needy loser.

Deborah Graupner commented 8 hours ago: “Just taking a picture in front of complex math equation, is supposed to imply intelligence.”

No, Deborah, you’ve got it all wrong. That’s actually Justine’s mathematical equation behind him. He figured that all out by himself. He’s actually also the brilliant Scientist who discovered gravity, the speed of dark, and some AWSOME hair products. He just never talks about his scientific accomplishments because he’s such a humble guy. And the Noble Prize people would be bugging him all the time and he has more important things to do….. like looking JUST AWSOME!!!
commented 2016-04-19 15:16:17 -0400
May I suggest we all start referring to him as the “Genius of the Laurentians” or perhaps the “Great Helmsman”. Then we can have a huge statue of him erected with his arm upraised as if receiving adulation from the masses. Soon we’ll all be carrying little booklets around containing the quotations of Justin to guide us through the day to day challenges of life. Then perhaps a Great Leap Forward…the Canadian Cultural Revolution
commented 2016-04-19 14:04:25 -0400
Look at the starry eyed fool looking at Trudy like he’s so special. If I got close, I would call him a traitor to Canada.

To Sean Penson Pedigree? Margaret mixed all her lovers spunk in a blender and got out the turkey baster. The end result seems to be some inbred moron that was Pierres first stab at multiculturism. As for the fossil Craig Oliver, what was once his brain has turned to dust. Last night I took a chance and went to CBC for a bit of the hockey playoffs. These are my only forays there in the last several years. Unfortunately the period ended and before I could change the channel on popped that greasy “tree in the forest” Strombo !!Then to my horror they switched to a preview of the National, where Wendy Measly was skreetching some blathering propaganda of some kind. Fortunately I was able to switch the channel just as Mansbridge was lubing up for another car interview with Justine.Hopefully when the first “refugee” bomber shows up he can do his deed at the CBC while Justin is there on one of his vanity forays.It is sad that these lefty clowns lay blame on one of Canadas BEST PMs ever,and fawn over a phony idiot bent on destroying this once great country. How are the kids doing in NS SCHOOLS?? That was nice you voted the libs in. Now you can sort that refugee thing out for the next 20 years if we last that long. Sorry for the spelling mistakes but Im not as smart as that LBGTXWESDKYGH Justin Jihad!!
commented 2016-04-19 14:03:14 -0400
Just wait until those who elected this fool see what he’s really up to. I wonder how they will respond when they see the PM is Muslim convert, who doesn’t give a damn about Canada. He and his foolish liberals are set to destroy Canada, as we knew it, for his own gain, and that of his criminal party, and the criminals that backed him at the UN. Junior will roast in hell one day, a long with all the other crooks and liars in the UN, and the unions. Where all money laundering of illegal funds happens.

The media believes their demigod Trudeau is an idiot savant, they’re only half right.
commented 2016-04-19 13:00:31 -0400
Let’s face it folks . . . we are being led by an Idiot !
Speaks in memorized sound-bites, a Quantum Computer would likely do a better job . . . LOL

Sean……sounds like you are in love and on the same intellectual level as your ‘gorgeous’ leader. Craig Oliver (the budgie) is an old ‘has been’ reporter longing for the good days of PET when he really was a reporter, not an old curmudgeon like he is now. Give me ‘boring’ Mr. Harper any day. He made me feel proud to be Canadian, a smart, intelligent thoughtful man who did more for Canada than ANY PM in the last 50 years. We had close to ten years of good leadership and security with Mr. Harper……doubt your ‘dear leader’ will even make the four years. You sound extremely stupid.
commented 2016-04-19 12:38:17 -0400
Vladislav…..something I ALWAYS admired about Mr. Harper…..he never, ever allowed the media to control him. He didn’t give a rat’s ass about their opinion and that is why they hated him so much. He was his own man, they could not control him in any way. Given that Canadians are sooooo easy to control….the media had their revenge during the election, led gullible Canadians right down the garden path.
commented 2016-04-19 12:34:50 -0400
I didn’t see the ‘set up’ but KNEW right away that TruDOPE had set this up. His flair for drama was out there for all to see and we know he is not the sharpest tool in the box so I knew the whole thing was a set up to try and make him look ‘smart’……he failed. The libs must be beyond embarrassed by this stump…every day he proves how unqualified he is for this job so the spinmasters will be using all kinds of tricks to ‘make’ him look smart. Don’t bother, we all know the measure of this man and he comes up short on all counts. The Canadian media are sickening, they really are. If not for The Rebel and The Toronto Sun (tho sometimes they fawn a bit too)…..we would never hear the truth about anything.
commented 2016-04-19 12:29:14 -0400
Mainstream Media in the USA and Canada (and Europe) do not use ‘reporters’ any longer. Reporters have gone the way of the dinosaurs. The News Media now use a new/improved model called the ‘lackey’, who simply take dictation from the real producers of this diatribe, and publish their BS for them. Oh, and we can no longer refer to it as the ‘news’; it simply has nothing to do with the news anymore. Justin is a perfect example of this ‘lackey’ phenomenon.
commented 2016-04-19 12:22:40 -0400
just wait until dearest Canadian leader…… Just-IN young-un
defeats Korea’s supreme leader, ……………… Kim Jong-un’s ….. 18 holes in one !
commented 2016-04-19 12:13:50 -0400
I remember they had complained about Harper not responding to media questions. Yeppp… Congratulations again Canada. You will reap what you sow.
commented 2016-04-19 11:58:51 -0400
Justin is excited because this may lead to quantum dildos

Trudeau’s clueless gaffing and amateur melodramas has made Canada a laughing stock in the US and G20. Obviously he’s determined to shame us on the world stage with these constant kitschy farces Butts passes off as PR scrums. Foreign scammers will get the idea Canadians are as stupid as their blank-boy PM and use us like toilet paper. Face it, you have elected a leader who is less than the sharpest knife in the drawer and is deplorably incapable to assume a roll as a national leader let alone a player on the world stage. All the drama, and personality cult propaganda in the world can’t hide this much ineptitude – it will play out – much earlier than predicted.

It takes a special kind of concentrated, distilled stupid to buy into the vapid cult of personality being run by the Liberal klepto-crony cartel. It takes a chronic case of arrested intellectual development to be duped into being a Trudeau groupie. I see these sub-human intellects on twitter parading their cuckold naïveté as if it were cultivated brilliance – just like their dear leader’s play acting as a know it all. Social media’s 140-character literary limit is tailor-made for oversimplified cuckold solutions that appeal to people with the attention span and reasoning power of an ant. THIS is PM selfie’s shallow constiuency – it runs at about 16%-20% of the voting electorate – when the seasoned 17%- 25% swing voters, who gave him a shot to change things for the better, are damaged or tire of the MSM BS tsunami that attempts to wash his ineptitude away, they will be ready for change again – I’m thinking sooner than expected.

Basically the shame in this story is not Trudeau’s pathetic drama/acting as a quantum thinker, it’s the Canadian media for setting up and pimping this substanceless cult of personality – what’s next, building sides festooned with JT pointing at a shining red star ? – The cult of the infallible “dear leader” appeals to the poorly educated 3rd world populations enslaved by a moronic thug. Canadians are a tad too sophisticated for these Trudeau-Butts melodramas. They will wear thin quickly.

How does a blithering idiot go from “um’s” and “ah’s” while speaking about common subjects concerning government affairs, only to become a veritable genius while speaking about something we all know he hasn’t the foggiest clue about.
People are so stupid, specially those who use a term like “in-Canadian”, right Penson?
You moron.

Woe to thee ,O land ,when thy king is a child.

A blind man could see it was a staged event. I lost all respect for the Liberal Party when they picked this numbskull as their leader. They had a choice of Marc Garneau , retired astronaut with a Phd in Electrical Engineering or Ken Dryden , a lawyer and former NHL Stanley Cup winning goalie. Instead they chose this dingus.
Next we’ll probably see him put his finger to his head like the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz and start reciting Pythagoras’s Theorem.
A total blockhead.
commented 2016-04-19 09:31:09 -0400
Another photo op to try and fool the people into thinking this guy has a brain. Just taking a picture in front of complex math equation, is supposed to imply intelligence. I would never think to use Junior and intelligence in the same sentence. He’s an empty suit, with an empty head. Easily led a long by those who seek to have power and control over the world. He is arrogant enough to believe that it is he that has brought about these circumstances, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Junior is a useful idiot to the evil UN, and once he has turned Canada over, he will no longer be useful to them. I wonder what his role will be then? He’d better be looking over his shoulder.
commented 2016-04-19 09:16:24 -0400
Justin is a gorgeous world leader, with a fascinating pedigree. People don’t want boring old Harper. They want all the charm and charisma that our Dear Leader exudes.

Craig Oliver is right! The Harper government is a very bad and very in-Canadian memory.

Ezra, good report. Its totally disgusting to see the MSM’s classic despicable spin distorting the truth. I has to turn the “decimals” down on my computer because it was so so bad to listen to.

I always knew Justine Trudeau was a brilliant scientist!!
