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.

POLITICS.
Derived from the word POLY, defined as many. And the word TICKS. Little bloodsucking parasites

I become more concerned on a daily basis of the heavily censored agenda reporting of our nationally funded broadcaster, the CBC. In this day of electronic news, thousands of innocent and well meaning Canadians are being influenced by information being presented as absolute truth. Information that is then regurgitated as Gospel via social media. We are clearly being told what we must believe and any rebuttal or contrary viewpoints are simply not permitted. Freedom of speech and freedom of thought is prohibited. Millions are being exposed to propaganda intended to support only the viewpoint or agenda of the corporation and their accepted story tellers. It’s frightening and it has to end.

Remember that… The Liberal Party = The Censorship Party

You’ll see that the principle applies in their many actions; which are mostly dark psychology patterns.

And the Obummer regime is of the same ilk.
They promised the most transparent government, but the Americans got the most secretive (censorious) government.

They do this because they delusionally feel they are morally higher than the citizens, so, like a nanny, feel entitled that they can make better decisions than the pesky morally-incompetent citizens.

Remember that… Censorship is the wellspring of corruption.
It is the antithesis of Freedom of Speech and of a freedom-loving country.

Conservatives are business friendly, whereas liberals hate capitalism, unless they can pick and choose the industry or companies who they want to succeed and help. I work in O&G and I hear the CRA’s auditors are out in force. The witch hunt is on for contractors who haven’t been declaring income. This began within 2-months of the election. This government both federal and provincial hate those who are paying for their sorry butts. They seem to think that they can do whatever they want to, but they forget when you corner people, they will usually fight back. I think the plan is to seize the assets, of those who they think shouldn’t own something that they don’t think they should have.

McCallum has been a sleazeball ever since he has been a Liberal. Whatever happened to the Pot-Smoking Camp Counsellor who is now Prime Miscreant promises to more open government actually means, in concert with their Satanic deceptiveness and deceit, really meant a more closed and secretive government by clandestine idiots!

Between the NDP in Alberta and the Liberals in Ontario and Ottawa, I think Canada is being set up for the “Perfect Storm”. The only consolation is, that in the movie, George Clooney drowns…..
commented 2016-02-25 16:58:16 -0500
McCallum is such a condescending pig when he engages with Ms. Rempel.
His boss the “feminist” should teach him some manners.
Oh right, feminist manners only apply towards Liberal women.

Why not overturn, undo another Conservative mandate meant to keep Canadians safe?

Treasonous individuals that in days gone by would have been hung have the Liberals to look after them – they get their bail appeal dropped while continuing to associate with extremists orgs (Khadr), another, of the Toronto 18, will have his stripped citizenship status reinstated because he’s afraid to be shipped back to Pakistan because he will be treated as a criminal accordingly.

The Liberals want to “study the effect of the internet” and what gets “published” (censor), meaning: how it effects THEM because of what YOU and I say, while such individuals like the above can use the internet to plan and execute crimes and get treated like royalty too!

There is seriously something mentally diabolical about Trudeau/Butts and his crowd. Even communists and dictators do not allow “dissidents” to run around freely. But then the only dissidents in a Liberal Canada are conservatives!

If one terrorist attack happens here on their watch, Canadians better get angry and loud because these maniacs need to be held responsible and accountable for this “feel good” recklessness. All but to erase all remnants of the past 10 years! That is what radicals do. Destroy for the sake of destroying with no plan of any kind as to how to, and what, to rebuild.

Oh my God. I’m full of Liberal news today to the point where I feel as though I need anti nausea medication. Between McCallum (isn’t it time for this guy to retire?) and his bla bla and that fool Charles Souza delivering the big-spending Ontario budget I need some of that cheap wine before Premier Mom gets her sticky hands on more of my tax dollars…and be damned I will not buy it in a grocery store which is a Madam Premier Shiny Penny Distraction from real issues. But, ’Justin’s Diary’ did give me a few chortles.

Wildrose Party. Merge with the PC’s now. Get it done. I know you hate each other and I don’t care. Get it done now. Once the merger is done you will have enough votes to beat Notley, which shouldn’t be too hard. Draft plans and be prepared to secede from Canada to form your own country, or a western confederation, or join the USA.

Wildrose Party. Get on with it. NOW!

The icing on the cake for David McCallum Fudd is that under his proposed changes to the Citizenship Act, those holding dual citizenship who are convicted of terrorism, espionage or treason will no longer have their Canadian Citizenship revoked.

Yipes….you can’t make this stuff up!

When will voters realize that their vote only accomplishes one thing – they are voting in the same/different bunch of thieves and crooks. Yeah, my vote really counts and makes a difference.

They’re not going to be transparent while they’re quietly ushering new liberal voters in by the hundreds of thousands (which is where this is going). These Mexicans and Syrians are going to be used to topple conservative bastions, just as they have been in the U.S.

Michigan used to vote Republican, many years ago. So did many other states.

Our democracy is dying. The new liberal party is really a completely unchained fascist movement. Transparency is a doublespeak term they use. They’re only transparent when you’re figuratively licking their boots. Anyone hear about their new whip rule?

Whips are not allowed. MPs are to vote their conscience. Except when the vote concerns the platform (bye, bye semi-automatics and pistols). Or when it concerns a non-confidence vote (bye, bye democracy). Or, as we’ll all see soon enough, when it’s anything Junior deems important.

All he has to do now is change the voting system in his favor and he can change his title to El Presidente

JT has chosen a new theme song and a band to accompany him on his speaking engagements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDEdFxUZ01s . The dancing girl, I think, is the Minister of his newly formed Ministry of Culture, Arts and Entertainment. What a guy!

It is blatantly obvious that the Liberal policies are in no way based upon what is best for Canada, they are fueled solely by their hate for anything Conservative. No doubt the petulant Muslim-elect has ordered his minions to govern based on hate and revenge. Trudeau is childish, dangerous and irresponsible, to say the least.

Trudeau you do not have to keep proving that you are from Que. after 4 months we have come to see that it is true.

There are at least two rather frightening things about this (probably more).

1) McCallum was smirking when he recanted his refusal to “answer any more questions”. I saw in him a disgusting smug arrogance that screams loudly the filthy morals of this Liberal government … like they think they are the unquestionable elite, so more along little unwashed peon. Sickening pukes.

2) The media part has said absolutely nothing about this, because they probably agree with McCallum’s putrid attitude.

Damn I hate Liberals.

The only " fundamental principles" of this government is their obssession to undo everything Harper did, trip over themselves to sell out our country as fast as possible and continue to carry on the liberal tradition of lies lies and damn lies.

Dear Diary;
It’s like déjà vu all over again.
During the election I was using the line that I would help the middle class because they’re the ones “who need help the most”. My stalwart news buddies did their bit by keeping quiet the fact that, under show-off Stevie, Canada’s middle class had become the wealthiest middle class in the world.
But now it’s coming out that a 2015 report shows that the current generation of young Canadians had become the wealthiest ever, again under Stevie. But that’s not the half of it. It was the CBC News that got wind of this under the Access to Information Act. Can you believe it? Really? My CBC? What’s worse, they’re not keeping quiet enough about it.
And after all the fuss I made the other day about how I chipped in a few million dollars so that a few kids might get a Summer job, not to mention the fact that I gave myself the youth portfolio in cabinet. Now there’s a slight chance that all this has the potential to maybe possibly cause some people to develop the faint perception that I may not be as bright as they could’ve thought I might be.
With cat-like reflexes, I immediately determined that the situation calls for firm decisive action. Thank goodness I got some from my lefty chums at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. David MacDonald swung into action and started spinning lines like “exercise caution” and “inequality trends” and “net worth by group” and “high end drivers” and so on. It didn’t take him long before he even had my head spinning.

Turdeau is a LIAR, always was and always will be.
MaCallum is a tool in more ways than one, just like all the other so called ministers in this government.
Liberals – I didn’t vote for them, and will never give them the time of day.
Liberals – LIARS ALL.

Just more of the same from the libranos – ignore what libranos say – it never matters.

Watch what the libranos do – this is where the libranos steal, cheat, lie and act out as vile nazi pigs that the libranos truly are.

McCallum – you’re a filthy drunk and you should do Canada a favor and retire and die.
