Trudeau’s cabinet shuffle a costly embarrassment

Brian LilleyArchive

Dion and McCallum are going to be ambassadors and Chrystia Freeland will be their boss as the minister in charge of Global affairs Canada. What could possibly go wrong with this?

Plenty actually, but the first point is that the cost to taxpayers of Trudeau effectively retiring Stephane Dion and John McCallum, will be between $600,000 and $1M dollars for the by-elections.

Once again, you pay for his needs - political needs, vacation needs, nanny needs -- whatever Justin Trudeau needs you pay for it, big time.

Watch as I explain what else could go wrong with this move beginning with the diplomatic postings of Dion and McCallum and moving on to who the woman is that is now Canada’s top diplomat - Chrystia Freeland.

We are told part of the reason this is taking place is that the government needs a new face to deal with the incoming Trump administration.

Is Freeland, the globalist, the right choice when Trump most definitely is not?

Writing in the online magazine Little Pink book a few years ago Freeland wrote:

“If you're interested in public affairs and public policy, you have to understand your work in an international context. Just thinking of things within national boundaries is too narrow.”

Does she understand that Donald Trump is a big fan of national boundaries, or borders and is pulling back from what he calls bad trade deals, at least from the perspective of American workers?

Is that the way to make yourself at home with the new Trump administration?

This should go well.

Is this incompetence, or is it deliberate? I think it’s a combination of both. We have 3 long years to suffer with this band of fools. Let’s just hope we have a country worth repairing after the damages they are doing to it.

Who wants to bet we see sharia law in Canada before the next election?

Junior is intimidated by people in his cabinet who are more intellectually gifted than he is. Naturally his choices are limited….very limited. The Romper Room Cabinet lives on.

Hmm, let’s see; Freeland was banned from Davos after publishing a progressive sjw screed against “old white plutocrats” and was only let back in as a member of Jesus Trudeaus’ 300 apostles. She appeared on Mahers show gushing about how
“Islam shares our values!” and was publicly ridiculed. She is persona non grata in Russia, and bawled her eyes out when a trade negotiation looked like it wasn’t going her way. Yeeeaaahhh. I see absolutely no downside to this dizzy cow being our chief diplomat. Trump and Putin must be pissing their pants.
Ah, our new immigration minister Ahmed Hassen. This is just so BLOODY BRILLIANT! A former refugee, “community activist”, “community organiser”, “community advocate” with a law degree who specialises in;
Criminal defence (Gonna need that!)
Refugee Law ( All the better to overturn rejected claims.)
Human rights law (See above.)
Used to work for…. AAH you got it on the first try, Dalton McGuinty, who effused;
“Canada welcomed him and he will help us welcome others.”
Yup. Lots and lots and lots of others. I’ll leave it to you to guess where most will come from. No potential conflict of interest here.

Given that Canada’s current Liberal Prime Minister is a village idiot, who in God’s name do we expect his ‘Minister of Global Affairs’ would be but a rocket scientist like Chrystia Freeland? Its onwards and upwards folks.

This needs reiterating:
JT will not put in cabinet anyone with a higher IQ/intellect/smarts than he has. He doesn’t want to be overshadowed by people below him that are smarter than him.
Thus we have Freeland and the rest having skills and intelligence somewhat less than a “potted plant”.

William-Russia actually kicked her out. She can’t even go there. Nobody wants her.
commented 2017-01-11 15:07:14 -0500
With Freeland in charge of foreign (or global ) affairs we should be welcomed with open arms by Russia and China. Communists love other communists. “Generation Screwed” just became “GenerationS Screwed”

I recall Trudeau not allowing any prolifers to run for liberal seats. At the time I figured it was just his sneaky way of weeding out any Christians which certainly was no surprise. Anyway, someone should ask the new immigration minister what his stand on the abortion issue might be.

Maurice said: “But really, If we have a Prime Minister with the IQ of a potted plant, can we really expect him to appoint Ministers of intellect who are proficient in deductive logic and reasoning? I think not. We are stuck with being the laughing stock of the world until the Liberal tenure at the helm comes to an end. On the positive side, there are still many liberal democratic foreign leaders who remember Stephan Harper fondly, and refer to his leadership in world affairs with gratitude. So hopefully there may be light at the end of this long, dark tunnel…. If Canadians learned their lesson.”

I fear Maurice you may have just insulted Potted Plants! At least they produce oxygen unlike Trudope spewing BS! There may be no end to the tunnel. Our illegal immigrant has likely presented Trudope the option of no elections at all……only the Liebranos know what is good for us, yes? That and they want their grubby marxist hands tightly clutching our money and entitlements! I suspect it will take more than an election (if held) to remove Trudope and the Liebranos.

“Once again, you pay for his needs – political needs, vacation needs, nanny needs — whatever Justin Trudeau needs you pay for it, big time.”

Needs and wants are two very different things. We’re paying dearly for “Little Potato’s” wants, not legitimate needs. A fond comment? No, airhead Freeland doesn’t get it. It’s a swipe at someone they consider inferior.

With Trudeau praying the Shahada in a mosque , appointing a Muslim to run our immigration department after his secret vacation at another Muslims Island palace, and partnering with George Soros to help ship in 300,000 new migrants this year without proper vetting don’t be surprised to see more Sharia law in Canada and for Trump to restrict Canadians entering the US. Because of our lax screening of Muslims entering Canada from countries known for radical terrorism based on Islam US security has identified Canada has a week point in the war on terror. Buckle up folks because the Trudeau crew is about to be steamrolled.

Cant wait to see these fools get kicked out of office. The bi election,s will be the first indicator of the anger across Canada.
We will see if it is all across Canada. I cannot find anyone who will admit to voting for them.
Our government is selling off Canada at fire sale prices.

Freeland can change portfolios all she wants but to me she will always be the Minister of Funny Faces.

Amen! Egil Lomeland:- “We are a land of fools electing fools and then wondering why we are not competitive in the world”… I would dearly love to hear even one candidate for the leadership of the federal Conservatives echoing just that truth….

Compare the American selection process where they are selecting the best minds in the country to run the country to that off Canada where we seem to appoint the most incompetent to the most important jobs in the land. We are a land of fools electing fools and then wondering why we are not competitive in the world. The only sector we had which generated foreign currency was the resource sector. It is being decimated by our leaders.

Given the serious intent of Trump’s administration to re-build the USA, I can already hear the guffaws in Washington about the Boy Blunder naming Freeland to her new post; plus the well warranted little swirly finger thing at the temple that one does when one is dealing with an obvious idiot…

I heard that Monsef said she was “Fascinated by Sharia” , so i guess she better shut up until a man allows her to speak.

Corky i feel the same as well, they have taken it way too far.

I have just about had it with the liberal double standard!!!

Justin and his little band of dipshit supporters still have the audacity to denounce and criticize Harper as an enemy to Canadian civil liberties, rights and freedoms… at the same time they chant support for Trudeaus anti Canadian policies that openly pander to foreign interests that are detremental to the future of homegrown Canadian economic success and growth!

Liberals ought to be shot and pissed on!!! I am sick and tired of liberals not only supporting, but openly condoning the systematic destruction Canada, its people and its future socioeconomic viability, using BS rhetoric like “racism” and “bigotry” to try and defend their pathetic and erroneous position!!!
commented 2017-01-11 01:26:56 -0500
This is what could go wrong, “A HUGE WRONG”!
Now if this wasn’t done Maliciously by Prime Minister Trudeau to make Canadian people irate and work against the Strong Will of the Canadian people and against his oath of Prime Minister what is?
Be careful what you write Trudeau’s looking for a bone to pick!
Whatever you do – make sure you do it legally , as I am positive Canadians’ will recognize why PM Trudeau has done this spiteful Appointment in Canadians’ faces in order to demonstrate what sort of high Bureaucratic Powers he has, in order to make this appointment?
This type of Tyrant power over Canadians’ demonstration by PM Justin Trudeau must be stopped!
Is Canada a Democracy or not? Do Canadians have a Democratic say or not? Is Trudeau trying to start a Civil War in Canada?
Do you as a Voter appreciate this?
I believe he did this to wreck Canada whether he can survive to bring us down or not?
Toronto MP Ahmed Hussen ( an Islamic running immigration! ) is the new immigration minister, Chrystia Freeland is the new Foreign Affairs Minister (update)

Come on Corky you know rules only apply to non liberals.

What a fucking JOKE!! This retard can not be any more out of touch, incompetent and inept even if he tried!!!

This little cabinet shuffle is nothing more that smoke and mirrors designed to distract the weak minded fucktards that actually support this incompetent faggot!!

I want to know what this corrupt peice of shit is still in office after his blatant conflict of interest by vacationing on a private island owned by somebody that his government donated MILLIONS to in so called “charitable” donations.

‘Trudeau tries to craft sturdier cabinet to withstand Trump:’ this is one of the headlines on the CBC news, by Chris Hall.
It made me laugh because leading the ‘sturdier’ pack and the one that will have the most exposure to Mr. Trump is none other than………….wait for it, wait………..Chrystia Freeland. The cry baby politician of the Canadian Liberal government.

People….wake up….put aside whatever you might be hung up on for a moment and SEE THE OPORTUNITY!!!!

The fallout from all of this is two bi-elections…..never mind yesterday…..tommorrow is the product of the efforts you make TODAY!!!!

Don’t ever let the phsy ops of the left disuage you.

I was really hoping Freeland would get the boot. I think she is nothing more than a dopey, dumb flake who always looks angry & likes her little red dress.
MacCallum out & a Muslim as the new M of I, wow, does that mean even more Muslim migrants.
Dion, reminds me of a little scaredy cat, all these years in politics & he still can’t speak English.

I believe Monsef got moved to status of women (where else?) certainly not to Iraq where she belongs. Yes I also had to dig out the old paper bag that got retired when Harper came in but I’m starting to consider swapping it for a plastic one and minus the eye holes.
