“She’s not stupid, she’s evil”: Notley declares war on Alberta’s remaining jobs

Rebel Staff
 

The price of oil is actually up fifteen dollars a barrel now from its low in January. But Alberta’s unemployment rate keeps getting worse. Calgary has the highest unemployment rate of any city in Canada. Why?

Well, I’m going to play clips of Rachel Notley’s latest speech about the economy. Listen and ask yourself: If you had money to invest, would you put it in Alberta — or Texas, or Australia, or the UK.

First she blames the province’s troubles on a long standing failure to “diversify" its economy.

But a graph from the government’s own website show that 30 years ago, oil and gas and mining was 36 per cent of the economy. Last year, it was only 18 per cent. So it’s already a very “diverse” economy.

What she really means by diversification, of course, is moving away from the private sector, and into the government sector. Alberta expanded its public service last year by 49,000 workers, remember?

Then there’s her new $500 million program to promote “Alberta's petro-chemical sector.”

Two years ago, oil and gas companies were giving billions of dollars to Alberta in taxes. Under Notley, she taxes you to give money to oil and gas companies.

There’s a lot more.

Notley clearly thinks she’s doing great.

Not because she’s stupid. But because she’s evil.

Notley is the worst politician I’ve ever seen. Even the worst politician usually have some redeeming quality that helps me understand why they got elected. But Notley has nothing. Perhaps she was initially elected for her paternalistic smile which progressives love so much And now she never stops smiling even while she tells us how bad things are, we just have to wait in desperation for her taxes, regulations and smiles make things better. Its like she was elected to manage the race horse Secretariat and is selling 3 dollar pony rides and planet friendly muffins to make money instead of going for the triple crown. For as far as I can remember Alberta has been the place to go to get your career start. For the first time ever its not.

That’s why the jobs have increased, oil prices are on the rise, and people from Saskatchewan are moving to Alberta. Rebel is not news but entertainment at best.

I know some here are of my generation, but I know many aren’t. This didn’t happen at the time of my birth(1948) but it was in full swing as I got older. The left got in power, and millions died in re-education camps, millions died of starvation as the left idea’s failed. Are we there yet?. I am afraid we are getting close. Look at the left indoctrination to our South. The organs of the Government (media) are in full throat. If you vote for th reformer you are evil,foolish,racist. stupid. Uneducated white males.. Uneducated white males, wow.. think about the labels there for a minute. We have to fight back. I don’t know what that means in a restricted Canada, but …wow…just wow.

Keep up the great work! Other commentaries already cover my views so I’ll take you on a side observation. Did you notice when Notley speaks, the people in the background exhibit the usual politically correct representation of diversity, and of course that’s wonderful as always…. except they seem to miss one thing … why are no males represented? It is the current year.

As a conservative and born again Christian my political support and loyalty generally goes to conservatives adhering to historically traditional conservative positions. In my many years of interacting with self identifying Christians, both lay and leaders, those of protestant persuasion and those of catholic persuasion, I have discovered to my surprise and dismay that many many Christians support liberals (now more popularly self identified as ‘progressive’), even hard core liberals like Justin Trudeau, Rachel Notley and Hillary Clinton. I don’t think we are going to see a reversal of the downward slide of this nation and the US, until we see a contraction in the number of self identifying Christians who support liberals. Given the ease with which a liberal’s platform, which is generally strongly antithetical to Judeo-Christian values, can easily be differentiated from that of an authentic conservative, you would think Christians would have no problem determining their alignment with conservatives. However for a variety of reasons we do not see Christians properly making this differentiation. Hence we see an extremely large number of Christians supporting liberals.

I believe this is no small matter considering the millions upon millions of individuals in North America who self identify as Christians. The root of the problem as I see it, is that many many Christians identify more with the world than they do with the church and the word of God. For this, we all pay a price because in our society, these worldly Christians not only vote liberal but often persuade non-Christians that it is virtuous to vote for progressives. The problem with this worldly definition of virtue is that it is not at all congruent with biblical virtue. In fact it is antithetical.

- It must be occurring to some of the public sector workers that after she kills the private sector they’re going to be paying a price as well. You can only run up so much debt. When the NDP nightmare ends the first thing that the next government will have to do is cut the public sector to the bone. A prosperous Alberta could support them but a post Notley government won’t have a choice. Climate change is a scam. It’s a scam that’s unraveling. Like any con artist, when you get caught – deny, deny, deny. Keep doubling down on your pitch. Look for someone to blame it on. Socialism is a scam. Convince people they can get something for nothing. Everyone ends up poor except the small ruling political class. It happens every time. It’s just a matter of how long it takes. Socialists love to reengineer society to match their idea of their socialist utopia. In Cambodia that reengineering cost the lives of a quarter of it’s people under Pol Pot.

- Both sides have made claims about vote rigging but it’s the Democrats that keep getting caught actually doing it. Remember ACORN? Do you think Sanders supporters have forgotten how they rigged the primaries? The Rasmussen poll had Trump up by 4 points before the debate (not that I buy what polls have been saying lately.) Online polls showed Trump won the debate big time. Joel’s a good guy but he’s a defeatist, always has been.

- The UN censor wanted to know who’s funding The Rebel. Why? Because even the small media companies that are acceptable to the UN are in somebodies back pocket. The last thing he wants is an independent voice.

Keep in mind this was right after Prentice brought down a Budget with many tax hikes and was eliminating our flat tax. I was not advocating a tax increase but saying (reluctantly) that if you are going to do at least keep the single flat rate, which was 10% at the time. Here is a link to my full blog post titled “Correction on Alberta’s Health Care Tax, It’s even crazier than I thought” which may put it into better perspective: http://heinzegroup.com/insight.htm#11

TRUDEAU, WYNNE, NOTELY ALL NEED TO GO NOW!! I notice Trudeau is on yet again another selfie tour through southern Ontario. He and Wynne are hitting us with a carbon tax on top of all the other taxes which will have us all using horse and buggy but there is plenty of money to fly his ass all over Canada and the world EVERY SINGLE WEEK- no thought to the CARBON HE IS CREATING BUT WILL NEVER HAVE TO PAY THE TAX ON!! SNAP OUT OF YOUR COMAS CANADA!! WE ARE IN TROUBLE FROM EVERY PROVINCE TO THE FEDERAL END. THEY ARE ALL THE SAME, NO MATTER THE PARTY: TRAITORS, LIARS, THIEVES, COWARDS, DICTATORS, BULLIES, THUGS, SELF SERVING VOTE WHORES!

There is nothing left of nutley, wynne-bag and trudope ‘s brains. Their brains are just pure slimy mush. They don’t care how much money they waste, how much money they spend, it’s all about them ripping us off. How could this so-called state of the province in Calgary costed another $20,000.? When will this ever stop, do they continuously get away with stealing and lying all the time with no repercussions at all, none…I am so dumfounded at the sheer arrogance of such evil so-called leaders. These blasted sub humans never ran on any carbon taxes for example, no provincial or federal leader should impose any horrible, divisive and regressive taxes without coming back to us with referendums. This garbage nutley’s carbon tax will be so aggressive as to render us all in the poor house which a lot of us are there already. She has got to be stopped before January 1.

Let Alberta suffer, let Alberta go broke, let all those who voted this ding bat in pay the price for voting from emotion and not thought. The best taught lessons are those that bring the most pain.

And might I humbly suggest, that between now and November the 5th, Albertans start posting their own homebrew FLUSH NOTLEY! signs on their front lawns, in their picture windows, on their balcony railings, in the back windows of their cars, on barn sidings, on grain silos, and add a special FLUSH NOTLEY! message on every cheque going to the government – THERE’S NOTHING ILLEGAL ABOUT DOING THE LATTER!… And it might be “educational” to see what happens if a few gutsy stores also post the same in their front window – they may be pleasantly surprised?…

DAVID HEINZE commented 6 hours ago..“I am reluctant to touch this, but if you must raise taxes, and I reiterate, I strongly oppose raising taxes, then keep the flat rate and raise it by a small amount, maybe from 10% to 10.5 % but also raise the personal exemption by an amount like $8,000 to around $26,000 which will protect the lowest income earners and do the least harm. I hate raising taxes, it is self-defeating, but this beats the increases to income taxes and the Health Care Premium tax that the Provincial Government is planning. It beats it by a long shot.”

Nice speech David in fact it all kind of made sense right up until you started supporting taxes at 10% and I’m just here to say no more taxes.
Taxes are dynamic and they never sit static and they are subject to the whim of the politician that has control of them… No more taxes…!!

She is stupid and because of her arrogance, she is evil. There are some people you treat as they would treat you. If she falls down in the street, people will do as she would, which is walk away.

There is a special place in hell for someone like her: having to live beside the Alberta people after she and her government are tossed in the next election will be the inititation.

Thanks Bugs Potter.
I almost have to wonder if Notley read my suggestions then proceeded to do the opposite.

DAVID HEINZE Your list is well thought out (IMHO) and presents several common sense courses of action that a responsible government could take to ameliorate this economic hiccup.

Now we just need to find a responsible government.

“Bureaucracy is the Rule of Nobody – the modern form of despotism”

Further to the above comment, I remind everyone that successive governments have been handing more and more power to bureaucrats to relieve their own schedules, and in some cases they assume the bureaucrat knows more/best. Is an “expert”. The Left have twigged onto this as being a way to get their way without being held accountable. However, the ministers have a Fiduciary Duty, a Duty of Care , and it’s time for some charges to be filed for Breach of Trust.

I see that some fishermen out in BC have filed a private charge against a company that caused a massive spill, and the Crown wasn’t acting. It works!

Every time I see that lying smirk on Nutley I feel like puking . I’m just looking forward to see the look on her catchers mit in the next election but preferably sooner ! Where the f..k did they find these retards ? Is there a government school called Mental Midgets R Us ? We should get rebates on the air they are wasting ! Federal and Provincial rebates. What a f..king nightmare. WOW !

“Bureaucracy is the Rule of Nobody – the modern form of despotism” – Well said, an insightful view!

I think it’s telling that Nuttal’s first instinct was to wonder who funds TheRebel. I think it shows insight as to how he thinks, because all Lefty causes are funded by those that stand to gain the most, and he just ASSUMES that’s how the rest of the world operates. An assumption so deeply rooted he doesn’t even know he carries it.

Nutbags wasted another $20,000 dollars on her wasteful garbage she spews. We are so extremely disgusted and furious at the absolute worst government Alberta has ever had. Idiots ndp voters, may you all rot in hell.

Hey Ezra you are totally right about Notley. Albertans are being destroyed by all of her stupid policies. There is an Alberta wide protest set for November 5 @ noon. Maybe yourself or Sheila could mention this on one of your shows, need to get the word out to as many people as possible. Edmonton, Calgary, Grande Prairie, Ft. Mac, Red Deer, and Medicine Hat are just a few of the places that have this organized.

Worst government in my lifetime. We’ll have to fumigate the Premier’s office when she flees justice.

I had a real hard time watching your show this time, Ezra.

When Notley “speaks” (more commonly know as “lies”) it makes my blood boil.

The very fact that all these politicians keep pushing what they know as an out-and-out blatant “right from the pit of hell” lie about this global warming bullshit directly to our face indicates that they have no morals at all.
