WATCH: McCallum tells bureaucrat NOT to answer question on reversal of Mexican visa requirement

Brian LilleyArchive

Sunny ways, you say? Can you stand another glaring example of how the Liberals are proving to be anything but “open and transparent by default”?

And it’s not just in the case of their refugee rush which I’ve demonstrated many times.

This time the hypocrisy takes place at a committee meeting on the question of the Liberal plan to remove VISA requirements on those travelling from Mexico.

I explain why the Conservatives chose to put that requirement in place but it seems the Liberals can’t really explain why they want to reverse it.

Rather than explain though, they just try to get away with telling bureaucrats they don’t have to answer the legitimate questions of elected MP’s like Michelle Rempel.

Watch as Immigration Minister McCallum tries, but fails, to get away with exactly that.

Naught naughty question askers! What do you think this is, a democracy?

Here we go again. Just like Obama in the US. These sacks of shi.t are going to destroy this country unless we do something about it. In 4 years it will be too late. Pretty sad to have all these immigrants in here with no place to live. What is wrong with Trudeau. They need to be sent back where they come from. We just cannot afford to have this never mind housing and feeding them….Death to Sharia Law

I have had personal dealings and a few friends and family members that have been MPPs and or MPs with the liberal parties over the past 40 years. It pains me to say, even though family and friends, in all honesty the liberals, even them have always been phony, selfish, oppressive, secretive and flat out liars. I distance myself from that party forty years ago but have followed them closely. I warned all that I came across during the last election campaign that this leopard would not change it’s spots. I was going to say, as Brian Lilley did that it is just more of the same liberals, but they are not. This new group of liberals have achieved a whole new level of deceit, totalitarian rule, and secretiveness. Justin Trudeau is not just naive, he is very dangerous.

So which one is Mannie? Nathan or Ronnie?

Between an obviously concussed Canada’s certifiably clueless leader and a slate of cabinet ministers whose strongest suits are mediocrity and the marionette-making of “Trudy”, you have the malignant core of the Liberal mindset, both federally, and hardly shockingly; especially in shameless have-not provinces like Wynne’s Ontario and Couillard’s Quebec

Does anyone else think its funny that all the old liberal skeletons are in charge now that the boy toy was illegally elected?

That bureaucrat has the look of a deer caught in the headlights. ‘Nobody told me I might have to answer some tough, probing questions. But, it’s okay because Daddy McCallum is beside me’.

I’m sorry if I hurt your cognitive dissonance, liberal, but the evidence is quite plain to see. Fresh immigrants overwhelmingly vote liberal, and the new liberal voting bill proposal will owerwhelmingly result in liberal governments.

Google helps. Give it a try. Our democracy is dying, and most people, including yourself, are not going to see it until it’s too late.

(Your lack of rebuttal to my points was truely pathetic. Go to the Globe where your ilk belongs)

@deborah Graupner. I do my own taxes and I’ve got to laugh every year when there is a little box I can tick off to give a donation to the government. LOLOLOLZ! Hell NO you blood sucking leeches and I will do everything in my power daily to save money in my pocket. I’d bet the majority of us do not claim all of our income we receive whether we are contractors or not. For instance; servers in restaurant NEVER claim all their tips. Hey if someone offered me a job under the table, I’d be there in a heartbeat! Or bartering, yes I like bartering.

Criminals never like their crimes being pointed out to them. In their eyes, they are justified, due to the brainwashing and lies that they have already been exposed to. You can see what bold face lying does to people. Just look at the faces of all the liberals, they look empty and vacant. That’s what happens when you try to fleece the majority, and think that they have to believe your BS, no matter how unnatural it is.

We just went through 10 years of a lying liar with vacant eyes trying to screw up this country. Hahaha….you described your lying X leader in spades! :)

Nathan W Speak about something in a hearing. Not exactly the same thing as not giving unlimited rights to disclose work related activities. Yes, that includes politically motivated “science”

John McCallum needs to step down, lying to the people of the country you are elected to represent is treachery and should be punishable with a lead injection to the cranium!!!

@ Michael Krchnak

“Deborah….yup, just got re-assessed. 9000.00 more they want….NOW!!
im not a contractor, tax deducted every pay period. It is just starting. "

Watch the federalies demand the IP addresses of everyone who comments on The Rebel so they can charge them for sedition, tax evasion and whatever else they can think of that’s downright hurtful to the glorious liberal regime.

TruDoh, Mr. Ed and Notley must spin around madly in their graves everytime they hear of something new being dug up about them … especially if it comes from The Rebel first.

If you don’t think you owe the money, it would be worth it to hire a tax lawyer. A friend on mine didn’t file his taxes for 10-years, and he went to a tax lawyer first. He ended up owing 50,000 but was able to pay it back over time. This criminal government is targeting O&G employees and contractors. I thought it may just be contractors, but then you spoke up to confirm it’s both.

Yvette Mozol – Yes, your portrayal of refugees as drug smugglers and addicts is sooooooo accurate. And your fears that their addictions will lead them to commit crimes, more robberies, murders? Your extensive knowledge and understanding of Syrians in general is apparent with every word.

P.T. Phillips – “I become more concerned on a daily basis of the heavily censored agenda reporting of our nationally funded broadcaster”

Censored in which sense? Or … do they merely fail to endlessly condemn the people you wish them to condemn?

“Freedom of speech and freedom of thought is prohibited.”

What can’t you say? What can’t you think? Which planet do you live on?

Deborah Graupner – “The witch hunt is on for contractors who haven’t been declaring income … This government both federal and provincial hate those who are paying for their sorry butts.”

Ummm…. if you’re cheating on your taxes and not declaring income, then you can hardly claim that you’re “paying for their sorry butts.” If you’re not paying taxes on income like the rest of us, then you certainly deserve the audits you get.

Merrill Meikleham – “Why not overturn, undo another Conservative mandate…”

It’s not a mandate if they got their butts turfed because so many Canadians didn’t like what they were up to. There is a new mandate, and that very explicitly includes reversing a lot of what the Harperites did. A mandate does not extend beyond the time you are turfed.

“If one terrorist attack happens here on their watch, Canadians better get angry”

Well, TWO terrorist attacks happened under Harper’s watch. You must be truly outraged with Harper. Especially considering that his response was to start dropping bombs on ISIS, making us a target (I personally think it’s worth it), and therefore NOT looking out for the security of Canadians.

William McDonnell – “or join the USA

Now THAT’s what you call a genuine traitor.

Jim Clark – "These Mexicans and Syrians are going to be used to topple conservative bastions, just as they have been in the U.S. "

Right, and that’s why the Republicans control both Congress and the Senate.

“Our democracy is dying.”

Democracy is dying because … you lost? How about not being so offensive? Then Conservatives would have a chance to earn some more votes.

greig mckinnon – “No doubt the petulant Muslim-elect has ordered his minions to govern based on hate and revenge.”

Your clear and accurate representation of reality is informative. I wish I knew where to get the truth like you do.

Wow. The hypocrisy of criticizing a minister for asking a public official not to speak about something.

At least it was the Minister himself, and not the unelected boys in short pants from the PMO running the show.

At 4:07 listen for it. When he is about to recite a prewritten canned lie. He always breaks into his “TRUDE-SPLAININ” voice. The cognitive dissonance triggers the whiny, nasal, condescending talk-downy voice. Used while reading his Butts scripted State Truths. Likely a dog whistle to “progressives” and Party apparatchiks, it always signals a whole bunch of oxymoronical liberal “Truther-isms” are a coming. Or Trude-isims? Or maybe a Trude-Butt-isim? They really are not “open”, just transparent.

BTW Brian, this project will never end so you’ll never get the answers you asked for, but this gov’t is so transparent, makes me want to throw up.
commented 2016-02-26 00:13:08 -0500
They are about as transparent as a solid steel door. They all use the same language, no matter what they’re asked…..the right thing to do….we’re working very hard……etc….ALL CRAP, MOUNTAIN HIGH. Will this insanity ever stop? Now they want open borders? Bring them all in why don’t you, you stupid little man with your little smirk & forever uncombed hair…..the drug smugglers, the addicts, we can hardly wait to have them live amongst us, committing crimes & creating more drug addicts that can only lead to more robberies, murders. Oh, that’s just such a damn good idea, don’t you think.

Excellent and professional report Brian, always respect your style. I have to admit, nary many people in this world that make me sick on sight like this slime ball McCallum does. Well Trudope is right up there with him. Dedicated and true Liberals both of them, if their mouths open, you know they’re lying.

Meanwhile the simple minded lefties still think they are transparent because Justin says so, since reality seems to be beyond their reckoning.
