Justin Trudeau


Recommended Posts

This idiot we have for a pm really must think Canadians don’t pay attention, have a short memory, or really don’t gas for what he does ….. 


When asked by The Globe and Mail to comment on the RCMP document on his way into the House of Commons for Question Period, Mr. Trudeau also said he would never have tried to influence a police investigation.

Neither opposition parties nor a government can direct the police to do or to not do whatever they want. We have a strong, independent process in Canada and we trust that,” he said.

The remarks were his first public comments on the revelations that the RCMP had considered charging him with fraud.

He stands with impunity in the hoc, lies, denigrates, non answers to questions and there is no recourse…….

I had hoped somebody would have pointed this out as a follow up:


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the police investigation into Vice-Admiral Mark Norman will "inevitably" lead to "court processes," even though the military's second-highest ranked officer has not yet been charged with any crime.

The prime minister made the comments at one of the prime minister's townhall meetings in Edmonton on Thursday, after one audience member characterized the year-long RCMP investigation of Norman as a "witch hunt."

Court documents show the Mounties suspect Norman leaked cabinet secrets to a Quebec shipyard in November 2015 over fears the Liberals would cancel a key shipbuilding project.

The arrogance of this pos is demonstrated in this clip…..doesn’t answer, apologize or show any sign of contrition….can’t even think of an original lie.


The country is lost……at least as we knew it.

From 5 years ago….even more pertinent in 2022

"I have yet to see a green energy policy that will cut global emissions but they certainly are effective at cutting our incomes, making people and businesses poorer.

When you tax people into poverty and force businesses to close their doors, there will come a time when there will be no money to collect."

“ the Fed certainly bears its share of blame for the great inflation of the 2020s. But powerful political pressures from the left  and overly optimistic analyses of open-ended debt policy, not to mention genuine uncertainties about inflation and real interest rates, also played a very large role.”


“ As monetary expansion continued — including in Canada, where money supply growth rates hit 30 per cent heading into 2021 — Congdon warned that double-digit inflation was a possibility followed by what he now sees as an inevitable recession. His latest report suggests the U.S. inflation surge could last into 2023, a product of rampant money supply expansion that central bankers and the mainstream economic community refused to acknowledge — even though that was the lesson learned during the first Great Inflation.


America’s leading money supply tracker is Steve Hanke, professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Hanke predicted today’s inflation in a commentary in early 2021. And in an interview Thursday, Hanke said the Great Inflation of the 2020s “has only one source.” Over the past two years since February of 2020, the Fed generated cumulative money supply growth (measured by a definition known as “M2”) of 41 per cent. Only part of the massive money increase went to real economic activity. Most of it was “excess money” that will bubble through the U.S. economy for the next 12 to 24 months, said Hanke. “No matter what happens,” inflation in the U.S. will track at least six per cent through 2022 and 2023. Hanke adds there’s a good chance of recession to follow, which explains why the stock markets are taking a big hit.


The same analysis applies to the Bank of Canada, where the only explanation for the Great Inflation of the 2020s — the Bank’s excess money supply growth — is never, ever mentioned.”

“ Grandiosity is an exaggerated sense of one's importance, power, knowledge, or identity, even if there is little evidence to support the beliefs.”


“ As a symptom, grandiosity exists on a spectrum. It can range from inflated self-esteem to sweeping delusions of grandeur. Grandiosity can be difficult to identify and pin down.


People who are experiencing delusions of grandeur, as well as those around them, do not always recognize it as being anything more than pompousness, arrogance, or boastfulness.”

Probably the meme of the year.

You can never anticipate the exact nature of events but you can identify vulnerabilities, anticipate likely outcomes based on not addressing vulnerabilities, and be proactive about preventing the holes from lining up.  Whether you like cheese of not you have a stake in this, that lesson has yet to be learned.

The effort to do these things right (and it takes an effort) has been profoundly lacking in the last few years, it’s actually astounding to consider how much long term damage can be done in such a short period of time simply by consistently doing the worst possible thing at the worst possible time.

But look at the polling numbers here and in the US, a slim majority of people (enough of them to matter) still want more, and the more part of this equation is easy. Simply stay the course. 

Since it all comes down to the voters, it’s not so much that these absurdities qualify as “I told ya so” events, they might be more accurately defined as WTFDYTWGTH outcomes. Take almost any current absurdity on offer, look at how it developed over time, and ask what did you think was going to happen.... in most cases, there was virtually no other outcome possible. 

As the percentage of people who don't like this increases (and begins to matter politically), the number of folks building canoes to escape Crazy Island will increase to the point of there being no more trees left to build the keel and staves. 

Right now, while there are still trees on Crazy Island, and while people are reading up on canoe construction, it's time to buy up all the fibreglass and learn how to do the layouts. You will have lots of business pretty soon. 

For the first time in a long time, people here are beginning to experience and comprehend the plight of others.. in other parts of the world. Those folks call headlines like this Tuesday morning:

Poilievre says Trudeau Liberals to blame for high gas prices



Conservative leadership front-runner Pierre Poilievre released a video on Sunday explaining why the Trudeau Liberals are to blame for high gas prices.

While it is true that the conflict in [Ukraine] has driven up prices, it is not true that government policies have nothing to do with the final prices that you pay at the pump," said Poilievre.


Poilievre said that taxes by federal and provincial governments have added 52 cents per litre paid directly to taxes, or a third of the full cost. This does not include recent additions from the Trudeau carbon tax.

"They do nothing for the environment, but they do make your life more expensive," said Poilievre.

The second way that Trudeau has increased gas prices at the pump has been by attacking Canada's energy sector.

"Before the so-called experts pull their hair out and get angry, let me explain why this fact is indisputably true," said Poilievre, who said that "while oil prices are set internationally and calculated in American dollars, the prices we pay here in Canada depend on the purchasing power of the Canadian dollar.

"What makes up that purchasing power? The exchange rate. The exchange rate is determined largely by our exports and imports. When foreign countries buy Canadian goods, they have to convert their dollars into ours, driving up the exchange rate of our money."

"Typically, energy prices have driven a high dollar in Canada. Over the years, when energy prices have gone up, the Canadian dollar has as well. Why? Because Canada's number-one export is energy. The result was, that consumers were protected from the higher oil price because the Canadian dollar could out-bid international buyers for petroleum products, and make it more affordable for Canadian consumers here at home. That was when our dollar was strong.

Now, fast forward to the present. Right now, oil is about $110 American, and yet the Canadian dollar is only worth .80 cents US.

In other words, said Poilievre, the Canadian dollar is no longer rising with the price of energy.

"If it had, we'd be at roughly parity today," with the US, along with a stronger purchasing power that would put gas prices at about 20 percent lower in Canada.

Poilievre says attacks on the energy sector by the Trudeau government is directly responsible for this.

The third thing causing high prices at the pumps for Canadians is the government's printing of hundreds of millions of dollars.

"Money printing devalues our currency relative to what it would otherwise have been. It is true the American government is printing money as well, and that is why both countries have insane levels of inflation. But as my mother used to say, just because your friend is jumping off a bridge, doesn't mean that you have to.

"We don't have to follow the insane money printing policies of the US. During the Harper era, we rejected this approach, and we managed to come out of the great local recession stronger and better than the Americans and without any major spikes in inflation."

"Money printing means more dollars chasing fewer goods, which drives up prices. That's why everything is getting more expensive, including the price of gas.

For those three reasons, Poilievre says, the Liberal government is to blame for the high gas prices that Canadians are paying.

Poilievre said that the solution to these problems would be "a Poilievre government" that he says would put forward a "common-sense action plan to make your dollar go further."

This would include methods such as axing the carbon tax, something he says rival Jean Charest supports.

It would also include "unleashing the production of responsible Canadian energy" by repealing Bill C-69 and C-48 that would allow for the production of energy and the construction of "Canadian pipelines with Canadian steel to take Canadian energy to Canadian consumers, creating Canadian paycheques."

Poilievre said that, lastly, he would ensure that his government would stop the "money printing deficits to protect the purchasing power" of Canadian dollars.

"I want our dollar once again to increase in its value and its ability to buy the things that you need to live," he said, adding that the Bank of Canada must return to a simple mandate that keeps inflation low.

"Make more, cost less, with paycheques, not debt," he said.

Not doubting that they could be responsible for our current high gas prices but...... high prices are in play south of the 49th and in other areas of the world. I would love to blame Justin but...... 🙃

“ In the real world, you must replace existing sources of energy if you want to get rid of them without causing misery, hunger, cold and death. Which by and large our leaders do. So if you really can build a fleet of electric vehicles suitable to the Canadian climate, and a grid to charge them, and a vast array of shiny new Green Economy energy plants to power that grid, get to it, and spare me the windy verbiage and sunny ways. We’re talking next-generation nuclear here and pronto.


Whatever you do, don’t promise to make gasoline unaffordable and then when it works go “It wasn’t me.” It was. For once you did it on purpose. Congratulations. Sort of.”

Yet another example of our woke idiot trying to project an image but keep the little people at home under his boot:


Even as his government stubbornly ignores local and national trends toward lifting mask mandates, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is proving extremely willing to go maskless himself — provided it happens on foreign soil.


On May 8, the prime minister was in Ukraine, a country that saw only 45 per cent of its adult population fully vaccinated on the eve of the Russian invasion. There were hugs with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, handshakes with Ukrainian officials and tightly packed indoor press events. In not one image can Trudeau be seen wearing a mask.


Compare that to two days prior, when Trudeau visited Hamilton, Ont. for a photo op with recently arrived Afghan refugees.


Of Hamiltonians over the age of 12, 84.4 per cent are “fully vaccinated.” At the time Trudeau visited, everything from hospital admissions to case rates to wastewater data showed that the city’s COVID rates were in steep decline. What’s more, Trudeau has himself received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. He also has natural immunity from a COVID-19 infection in January.


Despite all this, Trudeau spent the entire visit wearing a mask. Not an N95 mask as per the latest Public Health Agency of Canada recommendations, but a loose-fitting surgical mask whose utility has been increasingly questioned ever since the rise of more transmissible COVID-19 variants such as Omicron.


It’s far from the first time that Trudeau has observed one set of masking rules for Canada, and another while abroad.


In October 2021 Trudeau was photographed at a maskless bar gathering in the Netherlands along with the country’s Prime Minister Mark Rutte. Later that month, Trudeau was sporting a face mask outdoors on the grounds of Rideau Hall in advance of a cabinet swearing-in ceremony. The disparity was despite comparable case and vaccination rates between Canada and the Netherlands at the time.

This is all happening as Trudeau’s government stubbornly bucks both local and international trends towards abandoning extraordinary measures related to COVID-19.


While provincial governments have lifted almost all of their COVID-19 mandates, Ottawa hasn’t budged on strictures that even at the height of the pandemic were seen as among the world’s most stringent.


This includes a blanket ban on air and rail travel for any Canadian over the age of 12 not showing proof of vaccination, as well as a continuing vaccine mandate for federal public servants. ban on government employment for the unvaccinated. Airports and rail stations remain some of the only public venues in the country where masking and vaccination status is still subject to government order.


While Canadian public health officials justified the imposition of these measures as a key tool to curb transmission, epidemiologists are questioning their utility as more transmissible COVID variants are proving able to spread among the unvaccinated and in spite of masking.


“The justification behind vaccine mandates is that they help prevent transmission. But this does not seem to be the case any longer, with the Omicron variant,” reads a recent op-ed by McMaster University infectious diseases physician Zain Chagla published in the Globe and Mail. Chagla called for a complete dismantling of Canadian vaccination and quarantine mandates for travellers.


Continuing federal orders are also putting Canada increasingly out of step with the international community. Masks have been optional on U.S. flights for nearly a month after a similar federal mandate was struck down by a U.S. district judge. The U.K. began backing off on in-flight masks in March. The European Union is dropping mask mandates in its airports next week.
