Actor-in-Chief: Obama's tears were a cynical trick

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Anti-oil extremists aren’t just protesting anymore. On Sunday, they actively sabotaged an oil pipeline, tampering with the equipment, putting real lives in danger — not to mention risking oil spills they allegedly care about.

How do these criminals choose which pipelines to tamper with? They don’t tamper with pipelines that bring in OPEC oil to North America. Only pipelines with Canadian ethical oil are protested — Line 7, Line 9, Keystone XL, Northern Gateway, Transmountain, Energy East.

The people on the ground rioting might be just stupid college kids, but the people organizing, funding and directing them are deadly serious activists, based in the U.S. and elsewhere. When do we start to protect our national interests, or even have an official inquiry into these crimes?

Well, don’t hold your breath.

Not with Justin Trudeau and Gerald Butts in charge.

My first guest, Ben Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief of DailyWire.com, has a lot to say about President Obama crying crocodile tears over gun violence.

He also explains why Obama's latest anti-gun policies are really just about posturing and politics.

I point out that Obama never cried after the Paris and San Bernardino terror attacks; after those and other terrorist massacres, he tends to go golfing or fundraising.

Shapiro adds that as an Orthodox Jew, he feels far less safe now in America than when George W. Bush was president.

(PS: Shapiro counted the number of times Obama mentioned himself in his 30-minute speech. Can you guess the number?)

Then Sun News favourite Alex Pierson sits down with me to break down the taxi industry's concerns over Uber. Alex is now a spokesperson for Toronto's Co-Op Cabs.

Needless to say, I'm on the free market's side, but I wanted to give her the chance to make the case for the traditional taxi industry. You might be surprised by what she has to say!

Finally, I look at my viewer mail, positive and negative. And remember, I want to hear from you! I give out my contact information at the end of every show, and you can also add your remarks in the comments below.

Trudeau wants to change Canada's voting system.
Tell Justin we DEMAND a referendum on this issue!

I am surprised that some 4 letter works haven’t been used by Oil companies over the targeting of their industry. Its time that the Oil companies, go on holidays, put the trucks in the shed, turn off the pumps feeding the pipe lines, and stop delivering to Gas stations and Air ports.
They only need to do it once. Tell people to Oil off. Watch and see if Obama crys a river then. He will be sucking so much wind that the jet stream will move off course.
I personally get so sick and tired of hearing the trash talk its got to end. Go ride a horse already.

This story about the pipeline sabotage is a big deal. The extremists involved need to be caught and jailed. Where is the coverage in the mainstream? We do need to have a national enquiry, and find a way to expose the Rockefellers and others for their involvement in making sure the only oil we get is conflict oil. I am suspicious every time there is an incident, pipeline leak or train crash.

Glad to see the high-quality calibre of guest like the skinny little big brain s*t-kicker from Harvard law, Ben Shapiro. I’d like to see and hear more of him.
*Drones with bombs ‘regulating’ ISIS oil trucks on the road to Turkey should take care of the other $million in black market oil…like the MQ-9 Reaper, which ‘carries a variety of weapons including the GBU-12 Paveway II laser-guided bomb, the AGM-114 Hellfire II air-to-ground missiles, the AIM-9 Sidewinder, and recently, the GBU-38 JDAM (Joint Direct Attack Munition)’ – just get er done boys…

I have a limited time sum this video in 10 words or less, as I am watching Making a murderer documentary! & oh boy, it’s a long one.

Thanks for the story about the yahoos who tried to shut down the pipeline, first I have heard of it. I’ll bet they are not prosecuted. No coverage at all from the MSM

The turd from the White House picked up some tips on how to “cry on demand” from his actor friends on the left coast! By the way, did you know that the Greek word for an actor is actually translated as “hypocrite”?! :)
commented 2016-01-07 10:20:36 -0500
Obama may be able to start a new career in acting, if Americans are ever able to remove his sorry butt from power. God knows that he has enough actors in his pocket, that I’m sure they will be able to give him some grade B roles, after that faux watershed moment. How much more pathetic can this evil bugger get?

The woman beside Obama looks like she wanted to laugh

Ezra, I was interested in hearing what Alex Pierson had to say about the taxi industry’s concerns regarding Über, but unfortunately, for the most part, you kept interrupting her and she could not finish a thought. Sometimes, its nice to hear what the other person has to say, and then debate them on it.
commented 2016-01-07 08:46:07 -0500
Excellent points, Ezra! There is no end to the deceitfulness of such antics. Interestingly, while Obama thinks one life may be spared by his tactics…it is entirely possible that many lives will be lost, instead. It is rarely reported how the presence of private arms have prevented a murder or stopped an attack…there are cases in the States where even children actually saved their parents, with a firearm,when they were being attacked, but they are rarely reported and often censored for PC reasons
commented 2016-01-07 07:49:32 -0500
I still think that o’bombr wants to be sec. gen .of u.n.
commented 2016-01-07 03:05:47 -0500
Just out of curiosity. How does one become one of those paid professional protesters that are funded by a conflict oil company?

I thought Ezra was a bit soft on the cab lady. I was hoping for Ezra to talk about Robert conquest and regulatory capture.

I did like the point of there being a disruptive innovation such as uber taking the place of our current medical system. But I would love it even more if there was an uber to take the place of the unions. Any ideas?

Ezra, that was a great show. You reading out my comment really made my day. Thanks.

Hey, Wayne Beaton. Don’t forget Trudeau when you talk about scumbags.

Step 1 in the socialist hand book… Fake a cry

Step2 crush all the peons. Because they laughed at you while you where crying .

Step3 laugh at all the peons that you crushed.

Why does the weak minded fall for these bedwetters every time.

Obama should get an Oscar for that one. First time I have seen a Muslim cry because some Kaffir’s got whacked.
commented 2016-01-06 23:19:20 -0500
Like any other actor he’s paid to cry on que… Look closely at the corners of his mouth and you can almost see him withholding a smirk. I wish people like him would develop a prostate that suffers from gigantism and a stretched bladder as well…
This man would have to live 100 lives to equate to the amount of punishment he deserves.
commented 2016-01-06 23:10:01 -0500
One must wonder if he shed tears for the four dead Americans murdered in Benghazi. One must wonder if he sheds tears for all the people killed by the terrorists he releases from Gitmo. One must wonder if he sheds tears for all the people killed by the illegal aliens he has allowed to cross the southern border because he refuses to close it.
One must wonder if America can stand 11 more months of this rule of shame.
commented 2016-01-06 22:33:08 -0500
Life in prison for these eco-terrorist. Maybe then they will get the message.
I’m still trying to find where Obama was hiding the onion.
Good to see Alex again.
commented 2016-01-06 22:30:53 -0500
I disagree with her, but nice to see Alex nonetheless.

I am just going to post this again. ’ The Drama and the Trauma’.

I wonder when Justin’s little mind is going to inflict this act on Canadians ? He can’t do it too early in his mandate , other wise ,it might look like an Act. . Gonna have to wait a while ,possibly close to the next election -if it looks like might lose. . It is going to have be saved for a really Big cause ,that could possibly leave a Legacy . . I am speaking about the Obama tears—- the ones he had to conger up, for his last flailing and failing effort to leave a Legacy . So Obama is going to make it a bit more difficult for Yankees to get their hands on a gun. haha—-I ‘d be crying also—Obama—- because you really don’t have a legacy to leave to anybody.

Where were the tears for Ambasador Stevens and all the other victims of Obama’s reckless foreign policy which enlists the aid of terrorists, or the tears for the victims of gun free zones which he has mandated like Fort Hood? Did he shed any tears over the “Innocence of Muslims” filmmaker ho was unjustly imprisoned as a scapegoat for the now admitted Benghazi scandal- did he weep the abomination of the constitution used to do this?

There is little I can add to what has already been said about the contemptable swine occupying the oval office except to note that victims of any kind of violence mean nothing to him except as a political tool to further his agenda od the single party authoritarian state, its newly self appointed Tsar and his self pronounced “right” to make law without the aid of congressional concensus.

It takes a truly committed manipulative sociopath to be able turn on the water works at will to get his way – there should be a prison cell for this sick bastard. I will put my guess in at him referencing himself 76 times – I arrived at this number by averaging the amount of Me/ I references in other of his half hour narcissist rants

Dear Diary;
Seasons Greetings to all my peons and fellow worshipers of Islam.
Back when I was an awesome professional educator I don’t know how I managed to keep my hair without some half decent holiday breaks like these ones that I’ve now earned. Still, you all know what a workaholic I am, so it’ll come as no surprise to learn how much I’m looking forward to getting back to work. It’ll be good to get my sleeves rolled up, not above my elbows like folks who really work, but just up to under my elbows because that’s symbolism, and everyone agrees with me that symbolism is more important than substance.
I’m making plans to visit my best buds in China, maybe in March, but only after I meet with B.O. so that he can tell me what to say and what not to say. That super, valiant, intrepid, investigative reporter, Bob Fife, got wind of all this when he was talking to a “senior government official” who had been told by Gerald not to talk to anyone about this, but he did anyway, probably to give everyone the impression that I’m not a muzzling fascist, which I think just goes to show how transparent I am.
I really believe other people are coming around. Passing in the hallway I even overheard a conservative say, “grow-op ” and then “sunny-boy”. I asked her if she’d like a selfie with me, but she must not have heard me because she was laughing at something.

Uber for health care…

Look up the Mayo Clinic. Canada could use a similar organization.

So happy to see Alex Pierson on the show. On her Sun days, she was a beautiful, intelligent woman, with great perspective. I am sad to see her intellect reduced to being a shill for a cab company. It is a waste of a great mind!
I can’t agree with her comments that the city forces cabs to use “certain” mechanics, etc. In London Ontario, cabs are inspected, and repaired by the cab company. This is why some London cabs have holes in the trunk, holes in the floor, no A/C, and no shocks. They are crap!!!! I complained to the city awhile back, and was told, that cab # was inspected last month, and it was fine. They may look at it next year.
If I had a cell phone, and needed a cab I would gladly call UBER! If you don’t have a cell phone, can you still call them?
commented 2016-01-06 21:00:07 -0500
So why no tears for all the people killed by terrorists in the US alone ? Revealing info about how only Canadian oil is protested yet none from the mis east . Glad there’s a media outlet that tells it like it is instead of tells it like it’s funded by .

Good to see Alex again. Ben is always point on love his tweets and yours Ezra.

How can anyone take Ben Shapiro seriously – even as a conservative? He represents so much of what is wrong with the political conversation in America.
