There’s nothing like a manufactured scandal to cripple your opponent when the going gets tough. Just ask President Donald Trump, hamstrung by fake news stories of unproven Russian collusion.

Was Obama in on Russian Collusion Smear, Canadian Mainstream Media Style?

Was Obama in on Russian Collusion Smear, Canadian Mainstream Media Style?The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC),  Canada’s $1-billion-dollar-a-year taxpayer-funded state television network, seems to have come up with a winning race horse to take scandal-plagued Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reelection in October.

From what appears to be a planted town hall question in Kitchener, Ont. Thursday night, the CBC was among the first news outlets to pounce on a story linking Conservative leader Andrew Scheer to the thoroughly debunked ‘pizzagate’ conspiracy connecting former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to a child sex ring.


Within 48 hours Trudeau jumped his own bob-tailed nag giving an armchair press conference to the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association Annual General Meeting. Doo-Dah, Doo-Dah.

Getting off to a bumbling start,  posing against a background of Canadian flags, the prime minister starts off saying.  “We have a… We have a… Conservative leader right now …yet again he shows he simply doesn’t hear and doesn’t notice intolerant comments.”

It was Justin Trudeau, the drama teacher at his best.  One that doesn’t hear the thousands of groans from public masses that he “simply doesn’t hear” their anguished cries about his lack to take any accountability for the ongoing SNC-Lavalin scandal that has already seen his top aide, long-term “best friend” and two cabinet ministers quitting their posts.

Trudeau’s former minister of justice and attorney general has said she was pressured to help a Quebec-based construction company to settle a pending criminal case amid allegations it bribed officials in Libya for government contracts, The Globe and Mail reported last month.

“The official, Jody Wilson-Raybould, later alleged in testimony before the House Justice Committee that she faced “veiled threats” and “sustained” pressure to help Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin. If convicted, the company—with 9,000 employees in Canada and thousands more worldwide—would be barred for a decade from getting government contracts. (CNN, March 7, 2019)

“Wilson-Raybould resigned in February from Trudeau’s Cabinet. Trudeau’s top aide, Gerald Butts, also resigned last month, denying accusations he pressured Wilson-Raybould. Another Cabinet member, Jane Philpott, resigned this week, saying she’d lost confidence in the government’s inquiry into the allegations of pressure.

“Trudeau on Thursday described an apparent disconnect between his office and Wilson-Raybould, though he said he was unaware of any problem at the time.”

In other words, in spite of his assertion that officials need to “feel comfortable coming to me” with concerns, Trudeau “simply just didn’t hear”  scandal complaints from his own cabinet.

There’s nothing like a manufactured scandal to cripple your opponent when the going gets tough.  Just ask President Donald Trump, hamstrung by fake news stories of unproven Russian collusion.

Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Buying the Media In Time for 2019 Election


Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was asked about the government’s $20 million contribution to the Clinton Foundation during a town hall gathering.  He later said he didn’t hear a reference to “pizzagate”, but is being Trudeau and media-blamed for not confronting it when the town hall questioner raised it.

“He did not take the opportunity to dispel the myth that the Clinton Foundation is in any way linked to child trafficking.” (Huffington Post, March 8, 2019)

Not hearing the “pizzagate” reference in a likely planted question from the floor won’t stop the media from hounding him about what he didn’t hear straight through the upcoming October federal election.

And for all you conspiracy theorists, pondering why former US President Barack Obama was in Canada all last week, making flowery speeches,  where he even took a shot at Trudeau, IT WAS MERELY A COINCIDENCE.

“Obama ridiculed Justin Trudeau for being concerned about softwood lumber. “I was, like, ‘Dude. I’ve got Syria, the Paris Accords. Is that how we want to spend our time? On a timber agreement?’ (Peter Foster, Financial Post, March 5, 2019)

“He had used the same line in Winnipeg, but — to his infinite credit — interviewer Michael Burns noted “You just insulted us and we all laughed.”

“And still Obama gave his sparkling shoes one final wipe on the Maple Leaf flag suggesting that Canada was merely paying “lip service” to its commitments to the Paris climate accord (from which his own country is now opting out entirely). He didn’t note — or probably didn’t know — that this mere lip service has thrown interprovincial relations into turmoil. And this from the guy who made a desperate “agreement” with China under which the U.S. would commit to hard reductions, while China would commit to nothing.

“And still nobody booed.”


Was Obama really here to provide political distance between himself and Trudeau at the right time and place?

It was Obama’s top campaign team who helped get Trudeau elected prime minister in the first place. (CFP: Obama Campaign Team Hands Canada Over to the Lib-Left, Oct. 20, 2015)

If he changed his mind since then, shouldn’t he have just come right out and said so?

Meanwhile we have the problem of Andrew Scheer not just being a nice guy but a naive one.

Until the Canadian mainstream media threw him a life ring, Trudeau was riding the tide on the red herring distraction that his so-called lobbying efforts on behalf of SNC-Lavalin were to save 9,000 Canadian jobs:

“In regards to standing up for jobs and defending the integrity of the rule of law, I continue to say there was no inappropriate pressure.”

Unless Canadian Conservatives can replace the outrageous and outlandish “pizzagate” smear against Scheer and return to the real ongoing SNC-Lavalin scandal, count on Trudeau riding his bob-tailed nag to Election Day victory.

Doo-Dah, Doo-Dah!
