Trudeau “preens” as defender of press freedom abroad while attacking media at home

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

At a press freedom event at the Paris Peace Forum over the weekend, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau touted his support for media before an international audience, but does Trudeau really mean it when he says “attacks on the media are threats to democracy”?


Or is he just doing more of his standard virtue signalling as the head of the global anti-Trump cabal?

Today I'm taking a look at the treatment of the press by Trudeau and his Liberals, both past and present.

The list is long, and not particularly good.

There’s the Kokanee grope, the time Trudeau attacked an independent media outlet by name in the House of Commons, and the time Bill Morneau spoke at an event where the Chinese government censored the media.

If this is what the Trudeau Liberals support for the media looks like, I'd hate to see what their lack of support would look like!

Justin and his clan are the lords of inverse truth. When they accuse, they are looking in the mirror, seeing their own hate and reflecting it back onto us. The low handed, bottom feeder tactics belies the false words of inclusivity, projectile vomited on the masses. His attempts at subjugation will fail. He is the king of fake news, a smarmy hypocrite for all to see. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Justin Trudeau is a bad man, a very bad man. He wouldn’t know truth if it slapped him across the fanny. He is NO advocate for truth or a free press. The entire liberal clan are no good lying fascistic,opportunists. I don’t know how Justin can’t puke when he hears himself speak. Yeck! No one has any REAL respect for MR. sOCKS.

Canada’s Low Intellect PM fits perfectly with the more than 50% of Canooks that are the same !
Canada’s media is predominantly far-left . . . but what is much scarier is the Attack on Free Speech in Canada by the gaggle of Incompetents that sit in Parliament.

Trudeau is a criminal. Attacks on media are a threat to democracy huh? He certainly has attacked ‘The Rebel’ in the past for exposing the truth about him. I really can’t stand the fact of so much Chinese influence in our country. Give those godless leftist commies an inch and they take a mile. At least Harper stood up to them and said he would not deal with them until they changed their behavior on human rights, and then when he finally agreed to soften his stance, the Chinese publicly shamed him. We need to stop trade with China and get out of the highly influenced Chinese UN. We have enough rare earth metals in the Canadian shield to be a world leader in that field and we could make everything else that the Chinese sell to us. If we only had a leader who was not a coward and with actual vision who would do it.

According to Elections Canada, about 207,000 voter information cards were sent out in the last election to people that were already dead. Another 57,500 went to people that were not citizens

There are more than 57,000 non-citizens and almost 207,000 dead people that Elections Canada knows about.

Could there be more?

One political operative that I spoke to told me of comparing the voters list, the one that showed who had voted, to obituaries and other databases on recent passings.

His comparison turned up many people that had voted despite being dead for years.

“What’s it like to find out that your wife is hiding in the pantry because people are threatening her?” [Tucker said]. “I mean it’s upsetting. I guess I would say this. I’ve characterized the antifa people and people like them as protesters, but they are not. They weren’t protesting anything.”

Carlson added that before he was even able to reach his wife by phone, his brother and the police were able to get to her and make sure that she was safe.

I spoke with a Lawyer Friend of mine years ago…he was talking about a dik head that was a liar and a thief..His words were “People can’t suck and blow at the same time”..Seems like trudeau is trying to master that very same impossible action..trudeau probably believes he can suck and blow at the same time..is that what he meant with sunny ways and transparency?..
(inhale and exhale) for the resident trolls..

Thanks Sheila..please keep up the terrific work!

Sheila,I have to take exception with your choice of peacock for Captain Crayon.A peacock spreads his fan to show his dominance(hahaha) and to attract a mate(let’s not go there….). Also , peacocks do not do well around turkeys,so you are on the wrong track here.Simply look at his Cabinet and you will see the error of your thinking……
I think what suits him more accurately is that he “feels real loose,like a long-necked goose”.
As my daughter has some geese at our farm,I can attest to the fact that they can be "loose"almost on demand and expel the same toxic substance as Northern Dancer, however, in smaller quantities.They can be forgiven because they are just performing a natural biological function as opposed to an agenda…..
