Colombia’s president wins Nobel Peace Prize for deal citizens rejected. Here’s why they voted “no”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Today Juan Manuel Santos won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end Colombia’s 50-year civil war, one that’s left 220,000 people dead.

Santos brokered a peace deal with the Marxist narco-terrorists FARC, but five days ago the people of Colombia narrowly voted against it: 49.79 per cent of Colombians voted “yes” in a referendum, while 50.21 per cent voted “no.”

Why wouldn’t Colombians want a peace deal after all these years?

Because this “peace deal” gave FARC unelected seats in Colombia’s Congress. And special welfare payments. And even dozens of radio stations.

Santos made such extreme concessions to the terrorists that Colombians were displeased. So rigged the referendum question.

Despite all these tricks, all this pressure from (Obama on down), and the desperate hope of 50 million Colombians to put this violence behind them, they still found the courage to say "no" to a corrupt deal. Because it really offered no peace.

I think saying "no" to elites is spreading, don’t you...?

NEXT: Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidate Maxime Bernier joins me to talk about the state of the race.

THEN: Quebec broadcaster Eric Duhaime comes on to discuss the province's biggest free speech story right now:

A secular feminist author is being sued for slander by a private Muslim school in Montreal because she compared it to militant Islamic training camps.

I get a headache trying to figure out one single thing that ANY peace price winner ever did to obtain peace. I give up on the ignoble Nobels.

One more illustration of how worthless the Nobel Peace Prize is.

As bad a choice as Trump may be, Hillary is worse by far. If Hillary wins, America is screwed, and if America is screwed Canada is really screwed.

SEAN PENSON bleated: “This treaty should get ratified, regardless of what the people say. I don’t care if 100% of the people voted against it, it must be ratified”

Latent fascism surfacing again eh?

When Canada is at civil war with Islam, Trudope will “broker” a similar deal to appease his masters at the UN and expecting this will solidify his hold on rule!

Sean says of Canadians and Colombia…“We need to be directed and led, even against our wills….by the elites and experts” Talk about humiliating the dignity and welfare of human beings, let alone women!

Like all sociopaths, he is here to play with peoples’ heads because that is his game and the attention he gets feeds his
narcissism…so humour him if you want to feed his need.

Sean Penson and no one cares if you want the treaty ratified.

Trump is a dangerous loose cannon, and doesn’t deserve the office of the Presidency. Only Hillary has earned her place in the White House.

At no time has the Clinton family ever humiliated the dignity and welfare of womanhood, like this pos Trump.

And, as for Colombia: You should never let the common riff-raff have such a say on important matters like this; they have to be told what to do, otherwise they will just mess things up. That’s why we have elites and experts. That’s why Canada has the government we have. We need to be directed and led, even against our wills.

Don’t think so Sean, but we’ll see.

Robert Mc, Therein is the problem! Trump’s actions proves how unfit he is for the Presidency!

It’s Hillary’s time, and she will win, one way or another

With respect to the ten year old tape in which Trump is taking dirty about beautiful women, Trump admits to attempting to seduce a married woman but failing.
Therein lies the fundamental difference between The Donald and Bill Clinton, Trump can take no for an answer.

wonder if the rebel will qualify for the new Trudeau tax credit for talk show.

Maxime Bernier? speaks well as to the issues facing Conservative Canadians. But, another Que politician? I’m not sure I can handle that.
commented 2016-10-08 00:23:43 -0400
Maxime Bernier has been sending me his Political Positions. He stands for values that many Canadians feel we are losing. He is the closest we have to Trump; I guess that’s why I am hopeful that he will win the Leadership.
With more women in executive positions like Telus Vice President Andrea Goertz, I thought dumb blond jokes would disappear. She is making these jokes more popular.

No such thing as peace with commies, they want power and control. SCREW COMMIE SCUM!

I have the perfect test for immigrants to see if they embrace Canadian values. Serve them some peameal bacon. There’s nothing more Canadian than that, eh? If they refuse, then no entry into Canada.

All ’round great show Ezra!!

Regarding Telus, I have never been a subscriber, but I would have boycotted them only because of their use of endangered species of wild cats and other animals.

Regarding the Nobel Prize. Um – Nope. Since they awarded it to Obama for NOTHING, no meaning there.

Ya Dave Mowet. CEO ATB. Gore grad. I tell people all the time, went to work for Motley. Nice to see intelligent bi-lingual Canadians who don’t stutter uh and um like someone who’s lying. I could back Maxime if he’s for all of Canada.
commented 2016-10-07 21:05:06 -0400
- The Nobel Prize has become meaningless. Imagine them awarding it to someone who tried to sell out his country to Marxist terrorists on behalf of Obama. I guess dissolving the Munroe Doctrine wasn’t enough for the Obama administration.

- It looks like, if nothing else, Kellie Leitch has put Canadian values on the table for this Conservative leadership race.

- Taking legal action to silence critics of Islam seems to be standard practice. It’s not like they can defend their barbaric sharia practices based on its merits.

- Great job Mico. Home run with that letter.

EZRA , I agree with your hidden hand from some where theory
Some groping and stroking going on under the table
The REBELS intrepid reporters will ferret this out

I like MAXIME ’ s stands in particular the stronger screening process

Amazing Show, Ezra! Very informative. Thank you for all the good work that is done at all times.

That brokered deal will probably increase the cocaine flow out of that country and into North America and Europe.
And everything from the CIA down to our very own beloved CSIS will be rolling in the dollars and our local governments will be raising taxes to set up treatment centers on the corner of every neighborhood block throughout the country..
As well as further empowering the police to almost military authority.

we have had too many cartels in Canada. Time to rid the country of these out dated middlemen.
commented 2016-10-07 20:21:29 -0400
It seems to me that FARC is suing for peace for the same reason as Cuba: because their sugar-daddy Venezuela is bankrupt. Columbia should be able to get a much better deal out of them — or finally just wipe them out of existence like Sri Lanka did to the Tamil Tigers.
