U.S. oilmen sue Greenpeace for extortion: Why that will never happen in Canada

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

We’ve talked about it before, a pipeline project called the Dakota Access Pipeline, or DAPL. 

There are a dozen pages on the Greenpeace website, whipping up opposition to the safe, legal DAPL pipeline.

Yesterday, the company behind DAPL, Energy Partners, filed a lawsuit in federal court under the RICO act, the anti-racketeering law used against the Mafia.

The company says Greenpeace solicited donations under false claims, threatened the company’s investors and banks, and even launched cyber-attacks. I hadn’t heard about that before, but I do know that Greenpeace foments physical attacks.

(Remember what happened to our friend Phelim Mcaleer when he went to the anti-DAPL protests in North Dakota…?)

Energy Partners are suing for $300 million in actual damages, and the RICO statute lets them collect triple that. Don’t worry about Greenpeace though: Their annual budget is about half a billion dollars, money wrung out of people scared by Greenpeace’s hype.

Even if the DAPL pipeline doesn’t win, the company will get access to Greenpeace’s records on the matter through discovery. Imagine what they’ll find.

Maybe one day we’ll do something like that in Canada. I doubt it though:

Our oil companies are major donors to the very environmentalist groups that are killing them.

Let me know how that’s worked out so far for the Northern Gateway Pipeline, Energy East, Trans Mountain, and the $36 billion Pacific Northwest fracking deal.

All of which are dead or being killed…

NEXT: Author and activist Raheel Raza of Muslims Facing Tomorrow comes on to talk about what happened in Charlottesville, the media and political response, and the ramifications of this terrorist act.

THEN: Brandon Morse from TheBlaze.com and I talk about what just happened in Dallas, Texas, when Antifa attacked Black Lives Matter members.

FINALLY: Your messages to me, especially about our new campaign, StandWithTheRebel.com.

Non Muslim means you and me Dan. We are kafir, or infidels. Ex Muslim is just someone who left Islam behind them and identify as another religion or atheist.

There are ‘moderate’ sects. Ismail, Ahmadiyya, Alawite for example, which are Shia, but are considered non Muslims and infidels by most/all(?) other Muslims. I don’t know what Raheel Raza is. It seems those who consider themselves ‘moderates’ pick and choose what they want from the buffet. Okay. But how is that going to convince and reform the rest of them who follow the word of the Koran to a T (the orthodox, or fundamentalists)?
I don’t believe, as Raheel Raza does that the extremists are a small group. On the contrary, I think the ‘buffet’ Muslims are indeed the minority. The fundamentalists will never reform, and that is most of what is in Canada.

By the way, the Ahmadiyya, have only been around since the late 1800’s. They call themselves a revival movement. They or the other ‘buffet’ Muslims, will never successfully influence the orthodox sects. 1400 years of fundamentalism and nary a dent.

…and then I read RON VOSS’ commented 1 day ago…
commented 2017-08-26 21:29:35 -0400
Okay.
Before watching Raheel Raza here, I expressed the idea that ‘If we don’t eradicate Islam then Islam has promised to eradicate us…see the Koran’.
So after watching this I’m thinking someone should explain to me the differences between Moslems, non-Moslems, ex-Moslems and/or reformed Moslems, because the Koran, the Hadiths and the Sira still say all the same things they’ve always said. World wide Caliphate under Sharia Law…or die infidel! WTF!?

For the life of me, I don’t understand why Ezra gives Raheel Raza such a megaphone for her ideas. She references a group, “Islamic supremacists” that she describes as having an agenda based upon “hate and bigotry”. In her view they have only been in existence “for over two decades”. How about over 14 centuries! Would she be willing to agree that the terrorist acts of these so-called “Islamic supremacists” Have an agenda based the teachings of the Koran and the life of Muhammad. I very much doubt it.
Let me take you back to an interview Ezra had with Raheel Raza in November 2016 with the headline, aligned with Raza’s declaration, “Canadian democratic values are not at odds with Islam”, a dangerous illusion:
”http://www.therebel.media/raheel_raza_canadian_democratic_values_are_not_at_odds_with_islam">http://www.therebel.media/raheel_raza_canadian_democratic_values_are_not_at_odds_with_islam
Speaking in the House of Commons in February 2015, Justin Trudeau declared, "Acts of terror committed in the name of Islam are an aberration of their faith” and “the influence of distorted ideological propaganda posing as religion”. I would contend that Raheel Raza would agree with Trudeau.

You’re welcome Maurice.

Good suggestions, Tammie. Thanks.

RICO!
Yee Haw!
If that works, next stop…The Clinton Crime Family!
And once you’re down that rabbit hole…there goes the swamp!

How many Rebel supporters have a Twitter account? Its free and you can send a message to anyone who has one.

Using Twitter is the way @AndrewScheer, @DeronBilous, @joececiyyc, @MIchaelChongMP, @RachelNotley, @doug_schweitzer, @MarieFrRenaud, @ThibaultBen, @Brucesask, @NathanCooperAB, @BrianJeanAB, @MichelleRempel, @Jkenney, stayed in touch with each other/put pressure on their opponents to damage The Rebel. Click on any name and it will take you to their Twitter account.

You can also add videos, screen shots, and even polls to your Tweet. It’s much more effective than complaining here in an echo chamber.
commented 2017-08-24 14:29:32 -0400
Maurice, sharing the videos is helping the cause & doing research on this collaboration is needed.
I think your could be an asset to this project. Reach out to him and find out what kind of research is needed. Share your concerns about the criminality and develop a role from there.
Other commentors have similar reservations and are offering to work with him, please think it over.
I’m trying to figure out what capacity I can contribute.
commented 2017-08-24 14:03:55 -0400
Tammie those are interesting videos. Thank you for sharing them. However,they leave me feeling frustrated because, while I believe Trudeau is a a vile, evil, despicable human being, and probably a criminal (under Canadian law), I don’t know what I can do to help prove it. So when the video asks for my help, it just reminds me of my own impotence and helplessness in the face of big leftist government and MSM.
commented 2017-08-24 12:07:51 -0400
Liza Rosie, yes, that is all I was saying. Ezra runs The Rebel. To have people constantly badgering him to go back on a decision he made days ago, when we know he wouldn’t have made the decision lightly, made me wonder about their motives. That’s it. That’s all.
commented 2017-08-24 11:53:27 -0400
I liked Faith too and admired her journalistic abilities, and her courage under pressure. I do worry about her safety though. In this age of anger and rage, security is the most important thing when reporting the truth. And those who don’t want the truth told are becoming more violent and vicious by the day.
commented 2017-08-24 11:38:02 -0400
I accepted Ezra’s decision when he reported last night that Faith agreed with him when he told her she had crossed the line re: Daily Stormer podcast. It is most unfortunate she couldn’t see that when she was asked to give an interview.

I also think Faith will land her on feet. She has done some great work for the Rebel and this will help launch her as an independent or she may receive an offer from another alternative media broadcaster.
I wish her well in future endeavours.
commented 2017-08-24 11:33:33 -0400
Liza Rosie, I echo your comments regarding Faith. You are 100% correct.
commented 2017-08-24 11:02:27 -0400
A Rebel Fan, I see and agree. I don’t know if I would hire Faith back or not, however I think she has done some great work for the Rebel in the past. I am sorry she made this mistake and am a bit ticked at her. I don’t think any amount of pleading by any Rebel male or female is going to change Ezra’s mind and so be it. I also think the minute it happened, Faith had already moved on and I don’t think she would come back even if asked. I think people hounding Ezra to get her back should give him and the rest of the staff a break. I see what you were saying, however it seems unlikely to me that anyone male or female ever just took her for a only a pretty face though. I do agree it is time to accept Ezra’s decision.
commented 2017-08-24 10:48:20 -0400
ROBERT MCCLELLAND, thanks for the morning chuckle. While we shouldn’t take comfort in another’s misfortune, I must say that I enjoyed seeing that gas-masked antifa guy getting what was coming to him.
commented 2017-08-24 09:57:43 -0400
Ive been called a racist, a big nosed Jew, a white supremacist and a lot worse and meaner then that online and to my face for supporting Trump & im not any of these thing. I do have a big nose though but thats not my fault its my Dads fault. Actually the “shut your mouth you big nosed Jew bitch” was the nicest thing said to me. I dont even feel bad anymore when the mentally unstable call me names. im numb to it. LOL

We live in a world where benefit of the doubt is no longer an option. We are all told to not be afraid by our fearless leaders however when asked, the people are afraid.

I wonder if the BABY KILLER believes in Hell? He will when he meets his dad there!

NDP Sucks. Thank you very much.
commented 2017-08-24 07:33:39 -0400
Liza Rosie, I don’t think it’s me who needs to give Ezra or The Rebel a break. It’s more like these male viewers who can’t seem to accept his decision regarding Faith that need to give him and the rest of us who read the comments a break. For what seems like the hundredth time, I’ll just say that going to a neo-Nazi podcast seemed to be the wrong thing to do. Why would any so-called Conservative want Faith back? As eye candy?
commented 2017-08-24 06:21:19 -0400
An update on the Antifa guy hit in the groin by a pepper pod at the Arizona Trump rally, the police marksman was given an award for hitting such a very small tartget and the protester has since filed for a gender reassignment.
commented 2017-08-24 01:16:06 -0400
Why don’t you ask Faith A Rebel Fan? The Rebel expanded faster than one man could manage, stuff happened.as Ezra has admitted a few times.Give him and the rest of the company a break and move on. I don’t imagine Faith will disappear, just like Lauren didn’t. Lauren is doing great and I am sure Faith will also. I agree with Ron Joseph. Besides what makes anyone think either of them would come back anyway? They are both onto the next chapter of their careers.
commented 2017-08-24 01:02:17 -0400
It seems to me that a number of men are peeved that Ezra has let Faith Goldy go. “Bring her back” is a prominent comment. I’m starting to wonder about The Rebel myself now. I expected that all reporters would be held to the same standards. Why would Faith, knowing that she worked for a Conservative organization, “take a walk on the wild side” and wind up in a neo-Nazi podcast? It makes me wonder whether people like Faith Goldy and Lauren Southern are hired more as “Eye Candy” to attract male viewers than for any views or principles they are supposed to hold.
commented 2017-08-24 00:52:18 -0400
Ron Voss, that vid was horrible, but I am afraid to say, also hilarious! I’m sure he’ll sue.
Yes Trump speaking out against the rioting and violence in the streets is a very refreshing change from Obama’s refusal to denounce it. His refusal made it much worse. It was as if Obama was saying, ‘carry on kids, knock yourselves out’.
commented 2017-08-24 00:50:18 -0400
REBELATION REBELATION 4 hr. ago: I hope EZRA reads and follows your excellent advise, and sues Rosemary and the CBC for millions.

I also liked Goldy, but if she came back, can you people imagine the feeding frenzy that the 30 Journalists would have on Ezra and The Rebel? It would never survive.
commented 2017-08-24 00:42:49 -0400
Good show. Kudos to Raheel Raza, I admire her tenacity and appreciate her determination. Glad we’re talking about antifa, and giving our energy players a well deserved poke with a stick. Loved your closing comments.
I hope everyone who keeps this ship running can get a good night sleep after so many sleepless nights.
commented 2017-08-24 00:22:20 -0400
I hesitate to wade into the Rebel’s personell matters because it’s none of my business but I have to agree with other commentors here who would like to see a re-thinking of Faith Go!dy’s firing. It strikes me as a decision made under extreme stress and as many of us understand, decisions made under such circumstances are often not the best decisions we make. As I have said previously, Faith Goldy is the Rebel contributor who I have disagreed with more than any other. But I have also agreed with her countless times, very strongly. Over the years Faith has made a few indiscreet and ill-advised remarks on the Rebel. But, so what? I do the same thing every day, and I have been doing it since at least a quarter-century before Faith Goldy was even born. We all make our mistakes
Ezra, please reconsider, but understand that I stand with the Rebel regard!ess.
