How Trump took Dakota Access Pipeline from doomed to done in two months

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Alberta oilsands aren’t the only amazing new source of oil in the free world that’s giving OPEC dictatorships a run for their money. 

North Dakota produces about one million barrels per day. Unemployment in that state is a shockingly low 2.9 per cent.

Meanwhile, in Alberta, multi-billion dollar companies are bailing out, and the unemployment rate is 8.3 per cent.

It’s not oil prices. It’s politics.

North Dakota has a pro-oil government, but Alberta’s government is at war with its own industry.

That's why the Dakota Access Pipeline, or DAPL, was pretty much going to be completed.

So how do you stop it? You bus in thousands of paid protesters. Destroy the rule of law. (Remember when our friend Phelim McAleer went down there, but his questions weren’t “friendly” enough?)

Obama used the protesters as his excuse to deny the pipeline its right of way to build.

But within days of taking office, Trump lifted Obama's ban on construction, and police cleared the protesters. (It cost tens of millions of dollars to clean up their mess.)

From dead, stopped, blocked, impossible, legal barriers, physical barriers, protest barriers, rampant crime — to jobs, growth, industry, prosperity and the rule of law.

And the moral of the story is:

You don’t have to be bullied by fake professional protesters. America (and Canada) still have enough underlying rule of law to get a project built if there is any political will.

Trump has it, but Trudeau doesn’t.

In fact, he’s on the other side...

NEXT: Marc Morano of Climate Depot comes on to talk about Trump's sweeping executive "energy independence" order abolishing many of Obama's climate policies. 

THEN: The Rebel's Candice Malcolm joins me to discuss the troubling report that some Montreal airport employees have been identified as ISIS supporters.

FINALLY: I read your messages to me.

KAREN AND DOUG GEIL commented: “airport security in Canada is more pc theatre than security…”

So true. Last time I was in Toronto, Security had all us middle aged white guys lined up for a “palm sweep”, ostensibly checking for explosive residue, whilst the preferred religion of Jihadi Justin clad in full head to toe body bags walked through the gates completely unchallenged! Not even for ID!

- These pipeline protesters & those who support them are lying, bought & paid for hypocrites. Time to insist those in the anti-fossil fuel industry start living without fossil fuel & related products. Here’s a short list to get them started –

- Trump is a maker. He gets things done. Trudeau is a taker. He can stop projects from going ahead but I seriously doubt he could push one through if it faced any serious opposition.

- So now we have ISIS at the airports. Don’t worry though, the Liberal government is already taking action – bringing in censorship laws so Canadians can’t criticize their idiotic policies when the inevitable attacks occur.

Ron, I know you’re right. I also heard Houston was wooing our Oil companies as well. Notley is to blame, we are under a self harming , destructive government. I don’t blame Brad Wall at all, I wish we had a premier doing the same for us, It just hurts us more that’s all. :(
commented 2017-03-30 12:22:30 -0400
Sally Citizen—These Oil Companies that Brad Wall is wooing are going to other Countries because of your Provincial leader. He is only trying to keep them in Canada.

Space Moose—Actually your subject" Paid Protesters" was talked about after an Ezra show about a year ago. It started when Rebels were complaining that Petitions didn’t work and calling or writing your MLA or MP was also a waste of time. Both were boring.
The story goes that when Ezra was interviewing a paid protester, she took a liking to him. (She was pretty when cleaned up) She also had pull with the other paid protesters; she seemed to be in charge of around 10 of them. Myself and a couple others suggested , to get points across why waste big money on billboards and truck advertising when we could hire these protesters to get attention. For example we could ride on the CTV and CBC coat tails for free, as once they see 10 or 20 mean looking men and women in downtown Toronto walking around with signs, the TV networks go crazy and cover it in a hurry. Millions would see an opinion instead of 100 thousand.
If Rebels lived near by, they could join the protest.

David & Peter, The blood & fallout from the devastation in Alberta & the Maritimes as well, falls solely on the hands of the NDP & the Liberal govt’s!
Brad Wall, who I admired so very much & looked upon as a hero, has stabbed Albertans in the back by wooing Calgary O&G headoffices to Saskatchewan. Now this is a smart, bold move for his province no question, but he will hurt the people of Alberta more & that should not happen right now. He is kicking Albertans while they are down. I do enjoy how Mr. Wall goes after Notley, but taking our head offices is getting a little too personal.

Nice going PETER….I try and put out a somewhat sensible post at this morning hour, put it up to find you already posted my post. Looks like we are in agreement, and I also agree, thanks for the giggle DREW.

SALLY CITIZEN….As per your comment about how things are dire in Alberta. Even though much of Alberta is in the depths of despair, you would never know it if you relied on the msm to report any facts. I can’t quote who or where this came from, but through a conversation with a friend, who had direct contact with someone in the know, ( I believe it was someone in law enforcement), it was stated how severe the current situation is. The jist of the conversation was….the loss and destruction of the business environment in Alberta is HUGE. If this isn’t bad enough, marital and family break up runs rampant, and the most sickening of all is the largely unreported rash of SUICIDES. Almighty Trudope and Commy Girl Rachael are awash in blood. Complicate news media as well.

I await another suitable thread because I am about to unleash a diatribe on Climate Barbie. Can’t even verbalize my anger right now, will try to collect my thoughts and post later.

LIZA….Gawd I hope we can cross paths in April. Your wide ranging knowledge of so many topics and our seemingly compatible views on many things to me makes this a “must meet”.

Sally Citizen said (and I am reposting because it is so appropriate),

“While Justin is jetting off to his next photo op, people are losing their homes, losing their families, losing their way of life, and in some extreme cases people are even taking their own lives. The situation in Alberta is dire, the media ignore it, the gov’t only cares about immigrants and the green gods. What a shame!”

Ezra, I can barely get to all of the articles as it is. I certainly do not feel there is not enough content on the Rebel. Really enjoying the new additions of Barbara Kay, Tommy Robinson, Caolan Robertson and Eric Duhaime. To be quite honest I hardly miss those who have moved on to different things. Your daily’s are better all the time as far as I am concerned. I cannot imagine what it takes to pull off a show like that everyday. I know Brian is busy in Ottawa, but would love to see more of him. As I have said I don’t have time to read all of the Rebel’s content as it is. I feel I am getting a heck of a lot of bang for my buck. Thanks.

Ezra, Your show is great. I would like to see you do a financial section. Two great guests to consider to host would be Ian Lee & Rafi Tahmazian.

The Federal & Provincial governments are indeed at war against Alberta & the Oil Industry. They are nothing but two faced hypocrites. I challenge them to live without the products and services provided by the very fossil fuels they are trying to eliminate. Alberta and Canadas’ East Coast provinces are suffering deep loss because of the selfish ideologies of the NDP & Liberal gov’ts. We are helpless against them, the fight is futile, our only option is to hold on as long as we can and hope for a change in gov’t in the next elections. I just hope and pray people can indeed hold on that long. While Justin is jetting off to his next photo op, people are losing their homes, losing their families, losing their way of life, and in some extreme cases people are even taking their own lives. The situation in Alberta is dire, the media ignore it, the gov’t only cares about immigrants and the green gods. What a shame!

How fitting Trudeau airport supporting employment to individuals with terrorist links to ISIS. Unfortunately the airport is only linked to our lame PM in name only. One can be sure there are more in the shadows. With a PM that carries members of parliament having links to the terrorist group the brotherhood of Islam, it is only a mater of time before our parliament is fully corrupted. Wait I miss spoke, the Liberal government of Canada is a criminal organization. Billions spent on support of Trudeau billionaires and millionaires friends with no new jobs. $1.5 billion in taxes given to Bombardier went to pay increases for top execs while thousands are laid off. Yep he’s making the rich pay. With money he’s funneling to the rich from Canadian tax payers. None of these execs would qualify for bonuses without Trudeau and the Quebec Liberals stuffing their pockets with our money. Taxing capital gains another Lie/ broken promise to rain in the excessive salary top ups of his rich friends fleecing the tax payer. Justin Trudeau has no credibility. His word is not his bond. No new jobs for Canadians but there are big pay days for those who pay to play thru the Trudeau foundation and many other schemes of corruption perpetrated by the Liberal cartel.

Scary the part about Montreal airport,. but not surprised, immigrants always have the first pick when it comes to job related to the government, the leftists running our states in North America are candidly destroying our country.

Maurice Potvin , I presume you have come across Andrew C. McCarthy’s name and writings in your research. McCarthy was the Chief prosecutor in the case of the so called Blind Sheikh ,mastermind of the first World Trade Center bombing.
In his research for the prosecution, McCarthy discovered that the Sheikh was not crazy or radical. He was actually doing exactly what the Quran and other ancient documents ordered of the followers of Islam. Check out his speech in the following link.

I hear from tonight’s news that pressure test runs of oil have already begun down the pipeline… I sure hope that Puppet Master Butts, or some other brave soul in Ottawa, has the balls to alert The Boy Blunder to that fact, and the obvious “soon to smack him in his pickle nose” reality now unfolding rather rapidly on the North American energy scene…

Somebody please answer this one for me. How do you become a paid protester? The other day, I was talking to some leftist protester. This person claimed that the protesters being paid is a myth. If I want to sign up as a paid protester, how would I do it?
commented 2017-03-30 02:03:25 -0400
You watch Trump speak & you feel a sense of hope & then you torture yourself listening to Trudeau speak jiberish & incoherently tell you the opposite of what Trump said. So depressing!!
As for the oil protesters anywhere, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to identify them when they come to gas up & boom, the gas doesn’t flow out. That would make my day as they’re all a bunch of hypocrites. As for their garbage, they should have been made to clean it up or fined. There is never any repercussion as they break the law all day long, so why stop what they’re doing.

Candice gets better every show; we need full time coverage of Ont.. Brian is great in Ottawa and Menzies is growing into a favorite, especially if he keeps them under 4 min.. As Fraser said, Mark Steyn would be spectacular, however only CBC could afford him. I also agree with Fraser that someone sharing France and Germany would be interesting , at least for this election year. Last of all, Kevin Johnson has tons of energy that he could share with the Rebel.
Just thinking out loud.

Daryl Herman, in the Qur’an there are 99 names for Allah, but the two names that are apropos to your contention that Allah, the god of Islam, is the Anti-Christ are, “The Most Proud One”, and, “The Great Deceiver”.

Now lets look at what the Bible says:

Isaiah 14:14 “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Lucifer talking).

and John 8:44 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies”,

’nuff said.

I have been a consistent follower of the you and the Rebel for most of your 2 year life. I signed up for the premium content on an annual basis as soon as I found out it was available.
Now one small (emphasis on small) complaint. When you renewed my subscription it was done and I found out by noticing a charge on my cc. Please just send me a email notice that you will be charging my card BEFORE you do it, I suggest one month. If I decide I don’t want to renew (and I can’t see that happening) I would have the chance to inform you before the transaction. I am sure you accounting staff can do this. Thanks and keep up the excellent work.

Ezra, thank you for your answer but I was not questioning if your guest was muslim or not, but the fact that some muslims like her consider themselves moderate when we know that the Qu’ran is a very satanic kind of book. I would refer you to Maurice Potvin’s message below which is very detailed and well written, and reflect perfectly my own opinion. I would simply add that I heard that the moderates have never for the most part read their own religious books or do rarely go to the mosque. And yes, christianity has reformed itself over time but please, do not compare its texts to those of islam. Otherwise, we would totally lose perspective between right and wrong, like so many leftists nowadays.
Finally, Ezra, I wish that you and your team makes good money one day because that would mean that some sanity and common sense have returned and that would be very good for our freedom.

@ Maurice Potvin commented 1 hour ago

Obviously – you are a Scholar – at very least a studied person!
I began to read the Koran – and stopped! – continuing would have bent my mind into a twisted mess! How can anyone believing in that vile, satanic book – the Koran – be “moderate” – can you moderately cut off someones head – or moderately shoot a kafar – and still be a true Muslim????
The Muslim’s pride in the use of Taqiyya – completely opposite of what the messages given in the Bible – is what ended the question of the Korans validity for me. Islam exemplifies the Anti-Christ – who said it needed to be an individual?
Lies (taqiyya) can be very eloquent in its delivery – don’t believe me – listen to TruDope & his gang!
