Our Calgary rally was great — but one reporter had a story of her own

Ezra LevantRebel Commander Ezra Levant
 

What a great event last night in Calgary: 1,100 people, standing room only, in the Westin Hotel ballroom, to protest Rachel Notley’s job-killing carbon tax. 

(You can watch the whole event HERE.)

We had huge security at last night’s event: police, hotel security — and we hired our own, too. 

Then a left wing journalist named Haley Jarmain claimed on Twitter that she had received a death threat at the rally.

But weirdly, she waited two hours after the event to mention it. She also said she didn’t report it to police because they “have much better things to do with their time.”

Really? Can you think of much better things for police to do than to catch a would-be murderer?

And you’re a reporter with a cell phone. Even if you missed the death threat, you didn’t take a picture of the guy?

I don’t believe it.

But if Haley Jarmain doesn’t want to find a would-be murderer, I sure do.

I have the names and e-mail addresses of 759 of the people at the rally who RSVP'd in advance. And as to the other 350 people, cameras captured every person coming and going.

I have written to both Haley Jarmain and her boss, offering to arrange a time to go through the hotel’s security footage with them.

I’m also announcing a $1,000 cash reward for anyone who can identify this man, or these men.

I have bought the website, HaleyJarmain.com, and I will keep this video up here, and the $1,000 dollar reward, as long as necessary to find the criminal.

If you know who this man or these men are, contact us at tips@therebel.media.

When social justice warriors throw out accusations like this, and then run away from any proof, or even contacting police — it’s tough to come to any conclusion than that they just want to smear unemployed Albertans...

NEXT: Conservative MP Steven Blaney and I talk about the state of the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race.

THEN: To commemorate Human Rights Day, Jennifer Breedon, Legal Analyst for the Clarion Project, is back to celebrate the unsung work that One Free World International is doing for Yazidi women in Syria and Iraq.

Any body asked Notley’s Raging Grannies. the name implies threats.

Paul McCullough commented – " It’s amazing how these liberal “humanitarians” could care less about the actual victims of genocide. They need to be reminded of just how little they actually care every time they virtue signal."

Well the real truth of the matter that needs to be told loud and often is that they are neither “liberal” nor “progressive” nor humanist – they are indoctrinated leftist dogmatics – they are amoral and exist only to stuff reality and humanity into the narrow confines of a misanthropic ideology. They do not think in human terms , they do not reason – they react and they attack.

ALL leftist ideologies are rooted in Nietzsche who, if you ever bothered to struggle through his sullen brooding writings, was anti-humanist, invented moral realativism, despised technological advancement and was deeply contemptuous of any established order which was shaped by plebean consensus (democracy) – he saw virtue in totalist systems and a ubermench ruling class. This is the genetic make up of modern leftism as Marx and later leftist theorists drew heavily on Nietzsche’s radicalism and worship of the state as a tool to remake imperfect man – - although the automatonic indoctrinated zombies you encounter at rallies have no concept of the lineage of the misanthropic leftist dogmatism they spew with their programmed mantras.

- I watched some of the live stream. Great event. I’m not surprised that there’s an attempt to paint this as a violent group. The same thing was done with tea party events. They were made out to be violent right wing nuts despite the fact there were never any violent incidents or arrests or anything. They paid for permits (unlike occupy Wall Street) & left the areas cleaner than when they showed up (also unlike occupy Wall Street).

- The next leader of the Conservative party, whoever they are, had better be a conservative. Put in a watered down Liberal & it guarantees a second Liberal term.

- It’s amazing how these liberal “humanitarians” could care less about the actual victims of genocide. They need to be reminded of just how little they actually care every time they virtue signal.

That is possible Edward, and if so, it’s a little white lie which needs to be cleared up. The ‘little white lie’ business seems to be flourishing on the left these days, so much so that they actually believe they should be the final word. We really can’t have that.

An unsubstantiated accusation stays with the accused like a bad smell. It sticks, regardless of truth or fact. That is why this must be pursued. There is no onus in law to take the word of the accused as the final uncountered word. What a victim says must be taken seriously, but that does not mean their word needs not be substantiated by some evidence.
There is no reason this accusation should be taken seriously if Haley Jarmain refuses to identify the perpetrator (s).
Nothing is obvious Nathen. It is not obvious she is telling the truth or lying. If I had to bet, I know which one I would pick. I would rather not have to do that because that leaves some stink on her and the stench is still on us. Bad for everybody. Lets clear this up.
Seems irresponsible and fool hearty of 770 News Talk Radio to not want to get to the bottom of a situation which affects their brand as well.

What I think really happened was someone said to her " the MSM is dead ", and she saw her opportunity. Just a little “white lie” for a SJW.

Nathan believes he is the owner of the great esoteric enlightenment, yet fails to say what ‘is’™
commented 2016-12-13 08:41:41 -0500
Nathan, were you standing in front of a mirror when you asked about crazy brainwashing? Or do you think that the police were the ones who made threats to her, and that’s why she would not go to the police with what she is claiming was a credible threat.

The story under discussion: either death threats were made, which is a crime. Or no death threats were made, and a liar is smearing a large group of people (while claiming to be a neutral party to what was happening at the time). Making a false accusation to police is a crime, so I’m not surprised that she would not risk exposure and jail time.

770 AM has a choice to make – is she credible? If she is then they should take up Ezra’s challenge and work with the police to find the perpetrator. If she is not credible then why is she working for you, and how can you trust any reporting she does on anything that can be viewed in more than one way?

I haven’t been able to stand listening to 770 AM since Dave Rutherford left, their methods are not conducive to discussion and are not conservative (which is the backbone of talk radio in the US). It would not surprise me to find out that they advised her to make news if there wasn’t anything there that was “worth reporting” by their standards.
commented 2016-12-13 07:25:39 -0500
Wowsers!

What a bunch of crazy brainwashing you guys are putting each other through on this comment board. Does anyone around here even know what reality is any more?
commented 2016-12-13 07:23:05 -0500
Someone reported a death threat 2 hours after it happened.

So obviously they’re lying because they didn’t report it 2 minutes after, and instead waited a whole 2 hours.

Anyways, despite the absurd posturing to suggest that someone would fabricate something like that, the apparently genuine effort to support finding the person who issued the threat (left? right? behind? all of the above and others?) should not go unnoticed.

Daryl Herman, I watched The Third Jihad video. I found a problem with it in that it separates Islam the religion from Islamism the politics. I don’t think that can be done. For one thing, Mohammed preached religion in Mecca and became a politician in Medina. He started killing people who would not convert. Since Muslims take him as their primary example of how to be in this world, any of them could be convinced to do the same. I think anyone who tried to “reform Islam” would be seen as an apostate by, for example, the fundamentalist Wahhabis. That person or people would be targeted with a fatwah.

I used to think Islam was just another one of the world’s great religions. The more I read about it, the less I think that. I just don’t think a pedophile, a murderer, a psychopath, etc. could come up with a valid religion. Mohammed may have started a great criminal organization, but not a world religion in my view. His switch from religion to politics seems to negate the religious aspect.

The false accusation is another prime example of leftist fake news.
commented 2016-12-13 01:36:35 -0500
Personally, after careful consideration, I’ve come to believe that Haley Jarmain’s would-be murderer must be something akin to the 6’3" white rabbit that befriended Elwood P. Dowd in the 1950 movie, Harvey, (albeit somewhat more sinister than the benign pooka).

I could forget about water —if I found her in middle of the Desert.

I don’t like that bald headed guy—

I bet she was going to slip a rape accusation in there too but , but too many witnesses.

Interesting to see the true colors of the supposed conservatives. You know who not to vote for.

I bet after the rally the same man went and burnt down a mosque and distributed anti Muslim flyers in Edmonton and did not tip a waitress because she was a lesbian.

I bet it was the white man with the Trump hat.
commented 2016-12-13 00:47:57 -0500
Its been the lefts political tactic for so long, Donald Trump is president. Demonize the right. Call them immoral, nasty people who wish the worse for everyone. They are racist, homophobic, islamo, blah blah blah blah blah. The left can’t help themselves because it has been such a successful campaign for so long. America finally said no. Good people throughout America are sick of being scolded by vapid left wing insanity and have gambled on a political outsider who is high risk high reward. I hope he does great things and returns the equilibrium to American politics. The only people we have to thank for Trump are the left because you inspired the right to finally say no. Hailey is sticking to the plan cause she didn’t get the memo that Hillary is wandering the woods with her dog.. Looking at her latest article there is no mention of a death threat and actually appears to be reporting fairly on the rebels Calgary rally. Curious.

How about sending our troops to secure a refugee encampment specific for Yazidis? The UN forces know how to help and protect the Palestinians. Trudeau has already said absolutely not re giving preference to persecuted Christians.
commented 2016-12-13 00:06:39 -0500
What better statement about Canadas compassion than by taking in those at the back of the line in the Middle East. The Yazidis should be at the front of our line. Save the lambs and beware the wolves. How is this not everyone in Canadas thinking on immigration from the middle east? There are plenty of wolves, as we can read about everyday, but the liberals simply win the bidding war on the amount of refugees, then to save the hassle, grant refugee status those with means enough to escape the insanity of ISIS on their own, and get jobs and apartments is Lebanon . They are displaced. Not desperate, like the Yazidis. Perhaps the liberals think they will assimilate better and not blacken their eye when they fail to do so, like those poor Yazidis might. I have more faith in a persecuted group to succeed and thrive in a place without persecution than I do the persecutor who spat at and swore at them at they walked by on the street. And if you don’t think that happens in the middle east your a liberal who thinks everybody in the world, and I guess those poor misunderstood ISIS members, is full of sunshine and just wants a place to live and a little food.

So, if Haley is lying would this not be a hate crime against an identifiable group? I certainly feel offended by her outrageous statements and slandered. She should be hauled before the HRC in Alberta.

Doesn’t anyone else feel offended by her hateful comments? Sign up now.

Steven Blaney is anti-carbon tax.
commented 2016-12-12 22:59:04 -0500
I’m with you, Ezra. I bet there was no threat to this woman whatsoever. I
like Steven Blaney, I would love to see him take a verbal strip of Trudeau first in french and then in English. Also, think Steven would keep us safe!
Will definitely be checking out the Clarion project. These Christians and Yazidis are the real refugees, and wish Canada was more concerned about helping them.

“A criminal justice student”…..code for “social justice warrior”…..from a feminist perspective….being male is just criminal.

Nice response Ezra……“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour”
commented 2016-12-12 22:52:38 -0500
Of course, on the super off-chance that someone muttered something in anger at this sjw, it would have to be “believable” for a charge to apply, and her tweets make it clear she wasn’t really frightened, or took it seriously.

That aside, I agree with Lloyd, stay at it til this chic is forced to admit she lied!!

Clarion Project is awesome!! Great guest to be on the show.

LIZA ROSIE, “Unless I am mistaken, the little blond with camera and press pass around her neck, taking pics right in the middle of the room, before the rally actually started, is ‘our girl’.” If so she was standing right beside me at one point and asked a lady beside my wife if she would mind if she took a photo of the pro-oil button she was wearing. Then she was chatting with another man with a camera. My recollection was his telling her that he takes photos for MacLean’s as well as for the Wildrose Party which I found strange.
