Political Scientist: Trudeau ‘Blackface’ Scandal Could Cost Him the Election

Completely undermines Canadian PM’s claim to champion diversity and multiculturalism.

A political scientist predicts that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s ‘blackface’ scandal could cost him the upcoming election.

Canadians go to the polls on October 21, 2019, to elect members of the House of Commons to the 43rd Canadian Parliament. Polls show a tight race between Trudeau’s Liberal party and the opposition Conservatives.

Over the past 24 hours, two separate photos and a video have emerged of Trudeau dressing up in ‘blackface’ on three separate occasions.

In the video, Trudeau’s entire arms and legs are ‘blacked up’ as he performs exaggerated gestures in an apparent attempt to mimic or mock black people.

Another image is taken from when Trudeau performed the Banana Boat Song (Day-O) as part of a talent show in a Jamaican accent while blacked up and wearing an afro wig.

University of B.C. political scientist Max Cameron says the controversy could cost Trudeau crucial votes in key swing areas due to “diverse” voters being put off by his past behavior.

“There are many ridings where the margin of victory is very narrow,” Cameron told the Vancouver Sun. “In the context where every vote matters this could have a real impact.”

“Is this something you can come back from?” asked Cameron. “He embodies white privilege and he should have known better.”

The political scientist said the blackface issue completely undermines Trudeau’s virtue signalling about diversity and multiculturalism.

“This is a real dent in the strongest part of his armor,” he said.

Trudeau’s approval rating was already sinking thanks to a corruption scandal. He could now be finished.

The world’s tiniest violin plays.

Dutch Farmers Stage New Revolt Against Climate Change Restrictions

Sick of being lectured by middle class city dwellers “who have two plants on their balcony.”

Farmers in the Netherlands are staging a new revolt against restrictions on livestock related to climate change, with one telling the state broadcaster how he is sick of being lectured about nature by middle class city dwellers “who have two plants on their balcony.”

The demonstrations began earlier this month after the Dutch government announced that Dutch livestock farming should be slashed by up to 50% to meet commitments on reducing nitrogen emissions.

Farmers were irate after learning that the same restrictions would not apply to the aviation industry.

Demonstrators clogged up major roads and highways once again today, causing traffic jams across the entire country and leading to the Dutch army being called out.

“Last year you didn’t hear anything about nitrogen, and now suddenly it’s a mortal question,” farmer Micha Bouwer of the Farmers Defence Force told state broadcaster NOS. “These are all people in the city who have two plants on their balcony and say ‘nature is suffering’.”

Farmers also argue that their crucial role in food production is being overlooked and that they are being blamed for climate change.

Court rulings recently made clear that the Dutch government must cut greenhouse gas emissions “in order to protect the life and family life of citizens” in the country.

The protest once again underscores how punitive restrictions, bureaucracy and taxes related to climate change hysteria are impacting working class and lower middle class people.

Middle and upper class Extinction Rebellion demonstrators have been clogging major cities for over a week demanding more of the very thing farmers in the Netherlands have been protesting against.

Moody’s: Trump Will Cruise To Victory in 2020

Analytics models have been historically accurate every election (except the last one!)

Moody’s Analytics has predicted that Donald Trump will easily win reelection in 2020, with three models showing that the President will secure at least 289 electoral votes and as many as 351.

Moody’s has been highly accurate in predicting the outcome of elections dating back to 1980. The only time the company was incorrect was in 2016, when it predicted Hillary Clinton would narrowly win.

Three different economic models employed by the analytics agency suggest that Trump’s Electoral College victory is on course to surpass the 304-227 count that secured him victory over ‘Crooked’ Hillary.

The projections are based on economic factors, specifically how confident consumers are with their financial situation.

With unemployment at record lows and the stock market’s overall gains, Moody’s predicts that Trump will cruise to victory.

“Our ‘pocket¬book’ model is the most economically driven of the three. If voters were to vote primarily on the basis of their pocketbooks, the president would steamroll the competition,” the report notes.

“This shows the importance that prevailing economic sentiment at the household level could hold in the next election.” the report continues.

“If the economy a year from now is the same as it is today, or roughly so, then the power of incumbency is strong and Trump’s election odds are very good, particularly if Democrats aren’t enthusiastic and don’t get out to vote,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s.

“It’s about turnout,” Zandi added, noting that if there is a minimum turnout on the Democratic side, then Trump will more easily win.

“Record turnout is vital to a Democratic victory,” the report notes, yet across all three Moody’s models, Trump wins 324-214.
