Trudeau humiliated by China, will return to NAFTA talks with no new ammunition

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

It looks like Justin Trudeau will come home from China empty handed in what may be yet another abject failure to secure a trade deal as promised by the Canadian government.

Perhaps given our track record on prior trade negotiations, Canadians should have expected failure.

After all our International trade minister, Chrystia Freeland, famously broke down in tears when trade negotiations stalled with the EU, and now NAFTA negotiations are going very poorly by all accounts.

Trudeau had intended to enlist China as a buffer with the US and President Trump in our NAFTA talks, but it’s becoming increasingly clear, even within Canada's Media Party, just how inept the Trudeau Liberals are at negotiating trade deals.

To be fair, the trip isn't over yet, but the headlines from the first two days are awful with no deal so far, and no Canadian prisoners released either.

Barring a last minute deal, should Trudeau and the Liberals return empty handed, the pressure to come to a deal on NAFTA will increase, and the Trump administration will know they have Canada between a rock and hard place.

Trudeau is less than two years from re-election and without any major trade wins, the Liberals may find themselves in trouble.

What a complete waste of jet fuel for this junket. The Chinese did the telephone call equivalent of placing him on hold listening to elevator music . “Your call is important to us , please remain on the line and a lowly bureaucrat will take your call soon.” La de da … la de da Beep

PAUL TAYLOR commented: “The entire Lieberal Party is full of totally incompetents who insist they know what they are doing. Just look at their accomplishment record!!!! …………..Zip!!!”

To be fair. Not totally incompetent! They are making themselves richer at our expense. Just look at Bill Moredough!

When GM announced 600 jobs being moved from Ontario to Mexico, I heard no outcry from Trudeau or any other Canadian politician. Contrast this with Trump.

Terry, I don’t think she has enough sense to be embarrassed… or maybe she takes another pull on the bong whenever a new comment comes in!

Holy Smokes Tammy, yikes! The weather minister must be embarrassed.

Too bad Trudeau didn’t bring Freeland on this trip. Her bawling over the trials of achieving CETA shows that she would likely have had a full on teary tantrum after failing to achieve anything in China.
Small potatoes indeed.

And he’s STILL not ready…

Justin is playing tiddly-winks today and the Chi-coms are working out how chess games will play out months and years from now. With the current crop of babies steering Canada’s ship, the best thing that could happen at this point is complete failure. The worst case scenario would be for turdo la doo to go back and try to sweeten the deal. That would be like watching Retarded Bambi entering the dragon’s lair….without Uncle Walt around to give us a happy ending.

Surprise, surprise the Trudeau Liberals , like the US Democrats never expected that Trump will win in 2016!
Remember our national newspaper the ‘Misinformation and Garbage’, the editorial it ran for Americans not to vote for Trump. Now, it is convenient for the Canadian news media are not telling the truth about the state of negotiations in NAFTA. Shame that Canadians have been conditioned that without these ’Free Trade deals, Canada will suffer economically! (Scaremongering tactics have already started). Somehow reality tells quite a different story as Canada had prospered and had a growing economy well before NAFTA was put in place! Why and what is this government afraid of, if NAFTA goes south?

It’s about time that someone put Trudeau in his place . The Chinese have separated the boys from the men.
commented 2017-12-06 10:54:41 -0500
Lets just get one thing straight here, Justin is solely responsible for any humiliation and embarrassment Justin may feel. No one else has anything to do with it! Cause and effect.

Now, the embarrassment and humiliation I feel as a Canadian is directly related to numb-nuts-Justin and his delusional nonsense and his acting out of stupid…regularly. Cause and effect.

This is not a contradiction…unlike Justin.

Keith and Helen Harvey , I love potato chips . Why would you dishonour such a staple of the Canadian diet by associating them with the juvinile dilinquent Trudeau?
I’m going to buy a big bag of chips and watch Trump announce the moving of the American Embassy to Jerusalem. I can just imagine what our Muslim Prime Minister will have to say about that.

Its good that Baby Doc is falling flat on his face. A little humility is good for the soul. Unfortunately, he hasn’t figured out that he has been humiliated.

The whole sad part in all of this is that whatever he has done has hurt this country to no end. Straddling us with unbelievable debut, recreating our society in an image he has in his feeble mind and in a short time, killing jobs, and having an open door to anyone who whats to come here and for any reason – essentially on our dine – has more or less destroyed our country. Sadly, this is what he intended to do: "

The very concept of a nation founded by European settlers is offensive to me. Old stock White Canadians are an unpleasant relic. and quite frankly, replaceable. And we will replace them."
- Justin Trudeau, when asked to comment on his Open Borders immigration strategy.

Along with an almost excessive Muslim “refugee” policy of immigrants, he quietly did much the same with China a year or so ago.

When someone is as dumb as a plank of wood, maybe someone should hit him in the head with a plank of wood. It wouldn’t hurt (no pun) to try. It might even put him out of our misery.

This what happens when you elect a total incompetent to the highest office in the land and that total incompetent hires a bunch of totally incompetents.

The entire Lieberal Party is full of totally incompetents who insist they know what they are doing. Just look at their accomplishment record!!!! …………..Zip!!!

Any truth to the rumor that Matel is putting black wavy hair on its Crying Baby Wee-Wee dolls and re-badging them as Liddle Juthtins? Pull the string once it cries. Twice, tears start flowing. Three times – it pisses itself.
commented 2017-12-06 04:42:57 -0500
While more thoughtful Canadians may be dismayed by the evident ineptitude of our Boy Blunder in China, make no mistake that the foreign embassy staff of other nations are taking note of this fiasco, and putting “Canada Stupid” in the crosshairs of any future negotiations… And, obviously, the “American Elephant Next Door” is dong that in spades… But all Canadians will get a very rude wake up call to that effect come the New Year and as 2018 unfolds…
commented 2017-12-06 00:10:03 -0500
Who learned the crying from who? Did Little Potato Chip learn it off of Crying Chrystia or the other way round. Little Potato Chip is anxious to sell out Canada to the Chinese but he can’t get a commitment from them, kind of one sided. You would think he would come home and say to himself, that he would no longer deal with them after being humiliated. But I think he will give them more of Canada just to show them what a good Little Potato Chip he is.

Does anyone have a copy of the Old Harold Head comics from the early 70’S ?
I remember a character named Brucie the Ferret. Not sure why that image came back to me. I’d sure like to see it again.

I’m quite sure the Chinese know all about Justin’s life’s dream- the Security Council seat on the UN. The Chinese appear to have a lot of influence at the UN. So they know he will sell his soul and our nation’s birthright to get that worthless trinket. They are playing him like a hot weather pike.

Say, where are Andrew and crew on this file? Haven’t heard from Jay Kelly in a while telling us how much The Great Leader is respected around the world and how fortunate we are to have the lad. Funny how they go on and on about social issues but say nothing o defend The Great Leader on issues like this.

This TruDope POS PM never did have any ammunition! – All he has is a beguiling sh*tfaced grin & a stupid blank look on his arrogantly ignorant face.
All you Lieberal voters be on notice – your ass is about to become grass.

Well other than the energy sector China needs land, and Justin and some provincial governments screwed up the energy sector and other twits are giving them land for next to nothing, why would they negotiate when you have little to offer on energy and they get land for a song.

Iain Foulds you got that right he will sell us all to spare his ego.
Mongrel you also got it right, too many people have short memories, which is why they never learn from history.

Baby Doc can hug Climate Barbie and Ms. Red Dress during the election shedding tears. Then the concentrated and idiot population of the former united colony of Canada will forgive, forget and elect. Time to de-Federalize.

I should have added arrogance to incompetence!

The Lieberal idiots who support Jihadi Justin will find ways to distract from this. Cue the CBC! Can we expect to see Chinese Warships on the West Coast again as Trudope attempts to mitigate his incompetence?

Well said Christopher!
Trudeau is an amateur surrounded by amateurs…he thought he was sealing a deal….what a moron!

… The scary part is that you know Trudeau will sell out Canada if there is a hope for a photo-op in the end.
… Trudeau is about Trudeau. When asked what country he admires the most, he never even considers his own. He should be in jail.
