Bannon’s out: What’s next for America — and conservatives everywhere?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

“Bannon out at White House; presidency at risk”: That’s how the Drudge Report announced the departure of Steve Bannon, in ominous read lettering, too.

But in some ways, the scariest news on the same page reads: “Maxine Water accuses Ben Carson of being ‘white nationalist.’”

That’s the mania we’re in.

And it’s not just the violence on the street, and the mania in the media. What about in corporate boardrooms? What if Google won’t show your site on their search results, for political reasons? Who do you even complain to?

I think there was one hope in terms of fighting back, and that was Steve Bannon.

Many on the right don’t fight, but his fighting spirit is why Trump won.

I’m worried that with no Bannon in the White House, the odds of building the wall just fell.

So did the odds of extreme vetting of Muslim migrants, and cracking down on violent alt-left rioters.

Maybe Trump let Bannon go to appease the mob.

But the mob will keep on moving until the last one they come for is Trump himself...

NEXT: Joel Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large for Breitbart News, joins me to further explore the repercussions of Bannon's departure.

THEN: Salim Mansur, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Western Ontario, comes on to talk about the media’s biased coverage of the violence in Charlottesville, and the state of freedom of speech in the West.

FINALLY: I read some of your messages to me about the intense week we've had at The Rebel. Thanks for your support and feedback.

And I'll repeat my promise to you:

We're going to keep fighting for freedom every day!

Robert Mcclelland,

I hope you remember that when you click on The Rebel and it’s not here anymore.

Liza Rosie,

If you bothered to listen, you would see that it is indeed laid out beautifully, but of course you can’t think for yourself as Ezra is your master.
commented 2017-08-21 15:20:49 -0400
Canadalandcbcrejectloser doesn’t lay anything out beautifully except slander and hit pieces. Just another vulture circling and hoping to pick up some of the Rebel’s audience. Good luck with that one buddy, it ain’t goin down.. Who do you represent again Sarahjimmy?

“Perhaps focus on lean and mean and less edgy material which does not mean tackling controversial issues like climate change, mass Musslim immigration, attacks on freedom of speech”
What issues aren’t going to be considered edgy in these crazy days Ron Voss? There is no nice way of reporting on the truth, it is what it is. What do you consider less edgy ?

Jimmy Sarah paid troll, I thought I told you to sit in the corner. Stupid dog.
commented 2017-08-21 10:22:16 -0400
Hmmm…..the fascist MSM has gone quiet this morning. Nothing-burgers anyone?
commented 2017-08-20 23:11:46 -0400
Ezra, maybe things have been learned in the Rebel’s journey thus far and need to retool. Perhaps focus on lean and mean and less edgy material which does not mean tackling controversial issues like climate change, mass Musslim immigration, attacks on freedom of speech, etc. Stick with your core, yourself, Sheila, Holly and David Menzies. Would be important to have someone able to reach Quebecers. My two cents.
commented 2017-08-20 22:38:41 -0400
Ezra, there is no such a beast as bad or good publicity, publicity is publicity and you my friend are now a household name. Now get back there and prove them wrong about you, The Rebel and we the Rebel fans!

Ron, I think Churchill said it best-“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of suffering.”
Godspeed Sir Winston

The question all Conservatives need to be asking is OK it was a rough last few weeks but one positive thing happened. The media until recently would not even utter the words Antifa or acknowledge them but now we have called them out of the shadows and revealed open support for them by some of these same news agencies who pretended to not know who they were. The biggest problem now is how do we restore balance to the news, the education system that has been pushing Marxism?
commented 2017-08-20 12:09:48 -0400
So it’s that time after destabilisation and before utter collapse and bankruptcy that the elites make their big money. Venezuela can’t go bankrupt, as it has sold their oil out to China. Anyone involved in that sell out is reaping big rewards, while their people suffer in a sort of prolonged purgatory. Are Trudeau and Soros et al, putting us in the same situation, by selling out the majority of our oil and gas to the Chinese, thereby making themselves rich ,raping the country and us? Destabilizing our society and economy so they can more easily control the masses and insure they stay in power?

We need to throw these buggers out if we expect to remain a free country, and we had better do it soon before it’s too late. Very soon we will be silenced and neutered. All dissent will be disallowed.

Or are people really that trusting?
“Hell ,that could never happen in Canada!”
commented 2017-08-20 11:33:14 -0400
Thanks for that link Ron. Both my kids are getting his book “Utopian Road To Hell”
Very compelling interview. A MUST listen.
‘We are going to control you until you conform.’ When people start complaining about the intrusion, the ‘dream’ becomes enforcement. Most millennials have no clue what they are buying into. It certainly fits into the take down of anyone with ‘wrong’ think.
commented 2017-08-20 10:29:16 -0400
Time for Sarah to get to her jack boots on and try to shut down the Canada Free press.
commented 2017-08-20 10:24:11 -0400
Trump is right…..again.
The fascist socialist left has targeted a statue of recently canonized St. Junipero Serra located near Mission San Fernando in Mission Hills, California according to Paul Bois of the Canadian Free Press. Local CBS report contains video of a Swastika that was painted on the statue. Yep, even the Saints aren’t safe from the totalitarian left. Evidently they think St. Junipero was a Nazi. These crazed fascist socialists see Nazis everywhere. At least Ezra will be in good company.

As I mentioned before, I appreciated our “useful idiot” troll providing that link for the interview of Andrew Scheer by the CBC, as it was quite enlightening in revealing the shallowness of the current leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. In gratitude in return, here is one for the “useful idiot” to watch, an interview of William J. Murray:
Murray is the author of “Utopian Road to Hell, Enslaving America and the World with Central Planning”, what happens when people come to believe in socialism as the answer. Murray explains in this video that he was a “red diaper baby”, raised and educated by the people that promote a utopian society. Murray’s mother was Madalyn Murray O’Hair, perhaps America’s most famous atheist. She used him, while he was a student in 1963, to convince the United States Supreme Court to ban prayer and Bible-reading in public schools.
I very much doubt our troll is a part of the small group of well-educated, powerful, wealthy elites who would benefit from this utopian society, but simply a “useful idiot”, a little dispensable cog on the utopian road to hell. If he/she is so enamoured by what the socialist utopia has to offer then I would suggest that he/she could save himself/herself a lot of time and buy a one-way ticket to Venezuela, which Murray describes in this interview.

Ron Voss,

Yes, because the hard core conservative Leitch pretty much coming in last place in the conservative vote never happened.

Hell, Kevin O’Leary probably would have won if he was serious about wanting the job.

Hard core conservatives are losing across the board in Canada. Every conservative politician today is viewed as a cuck on The Rebel. From Patrick Brown to the new conservative party in Alberta to Andrew Scheer.

So tell me when are the conservative you like going to win elections?
commented 2017-08-20 00:13:26 -0400
Imagine that a “useful idiot” leftwing troll giving advice as to who is winnable for the conservatives!
commented 2017-08-20 00:11:06 -0400
Liza Rosie,

The audio made it clear that Ezra wasn’t blackmailed, so that alone negates Ezra’s entire blackmail video.
commented 2017-08-20 00:10:29 -0400
When the leader of the Conservatives Party gets an endorsement from none other than leftwing Maclean’s as “Andrew Scheer, the Conservative Party’s folksy unifier – The aw-shucks demeanour of the new leader of the opposition and the federal Tories belies his complexity, and maybe his electability, too” conservatives can recognize that we are in trouble:
Seems like folksy, aw-shucks Gomer Pyle was elected to lead the Conservative Party. As one conservative commentator posted at Scheer’s Facebook: “We need a Bulldog, not a grinning Cheshire cat to beat Trudeau.”
commented 2017-08-20 00:09:38 -0400
Liza Rosie,

I am sorry to wake you from your slumber, but NO conservative politician was looking to appeal to people like you with the exception of Leitch, so insulting extreme conservatives like you is actually a good thing from a political standpoint.

They don’t want vote from the extreme fringe – they want votes from REAL Canadians. Center right can wing elections. Just ask Stephen Harper.

If Ezra Levant went into politics, do you actually think he would have a hope in hell of winning? He would be treated like a pariah and like Leitch, end up in last place pretty much for conservative leader.

People like you just don’t get it. The “real” conservative you want will NEVER win, so what is the point?

Liza Rosie: When I was breezing through a number of articles today I was looking into Wolfgang Droeg that use to be the head of the White Heritage Front and it mentioned at one point they tried to take advantage of the inexperience of the Reform party but once the reform party was son to them they were denied. I’m sure it is the same in the U.S.s You don’t see clan members going to party events but there is no way you can stop someone from voting. That is why this whole Trump whites supremacist thing is the biggest nothing burger of the bunch. To me the sickest part of all this is anyone who has been legitimately conned into thinking Donald Trump is the monster they are portraying him to be may find our when Antifa grows in strength that they have a much more real problem on their hands then a guy who tweets too much.
commented 2017-08-19 23:50:54 -0400
Excellent comment Ron Voss. I couldn’t watch the bit with cbc and Scheer. It makes me too mad. What a blatant insult to a very large group of people, and not just Rebels. What does he think Joe and Martha Canada think about liberal lite. He is living in a bubble if he thinks the bulk want a cucked Canada. What a disgrace. Half the people he is insulting, voted him in. He seems to forget that. Scheer is no choice, he is done, and the conservative party is done in this country unless they get rid of him before the election. The liberals have control of the opposition, that leaves us no where. Scheer has no back bone and no integrity. Sad days for Canada.
commented 2017-08-19 23:42:12 -0400
The world has been tricked into believing that white supremacists are right wing, or extreme right. They are not. Historically that is a left wing thing and it is high time we correct people who tell us those people reside on the right of centre. They never did, and they don’t now. Trump coined them ALT LEFT. I think it will stick, as that is where this group belongs, and has always lived. Don’t let the left direct this narrative to somehow link us to them. They have nothing to do with us.
commented 2017-08-19 23:36:42 -0400
There really wasn’t a whole lot damning in the NP article, and that goes for the audio of the conversation with Caolan and George. Big hairy deal. I wonder how much Global paid Caolan for a copy? Bunch of scammers. What a joke. I wonder if Ezra ever did get the hardrive and equipment back as per the agreement?
commented 2017-08-19 23:20:19 -0400
The funny part of it is the liberals were salivating when the conservatives were divided before but I remember not to long after that people were wondering if the liberal part was done for good. So who knows. I registered but Scheer never made my list anyhow.
commented 2017-08-19 22:55:57 -0400
So I guess Trudeau re-elect in 2019 then if Scheer is so awful.

commented 2017-08-19 22:30:50 -0400
Thanks to the “useful idiot” troll for sharing that interview of Scheer by the CBC. Pretty pathetic and laughable. When pressed several times by Rosemary Barton as to specifics as to why he decided to renounce the Rebel, he responded with the usual bafflegab, including “I feel”. While he said that you don’t want politicians to decide who is and who isn’t a legitimate news organization, he did exactly that by throwing the Rebel under the bus! Clearly, by allowing himself to be interviewed by the CBC, the Liberals’s propaganda organization, he legitimized it. Noteworthy that he didn’t consider the Rebel as the kind of outlet to get his “vision out of a positive message”. Could that have something to do with the Rebel critically reporting Scheer whipping his MPs to support the Liberal motion affirming the Paris Accord and attacking Trump? As far as his saying he is “not their kind of conservative”, he, likewise, threw Rebel supporters under the bus and indicating that they are not not welcome in his “open, inclusive” party. Once again, pathetic!
