“He’d get the first billion in 24 hours”: Why Trump should crowdfund the wall

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

If Trump builds the wall by 2020, he will be reelected, no matter what else. If he does not build the wall by 2020, he will not be reelected, no matter what else.

Finally, the Department of Homeland Security has contracted with four construction companies to build a test section of the wall. One of them will get the contract.

A leaked memo says the wall could cost up to $21 billion. So what?

As one pundit put it, that’s about the cost of one and a half of the Navy’s new aircraft carriers, and it probably does a much foreign policy good, and saves more American lives.

$21.6 billion is a rounding error in terms of Obama’s waste and corruption. How much did Obama spend on solar schemes and bail-outs to his friends?

And if Congress refuses to fund the wall, crowdfund it. $21.6 billion — and that’s a high estimate — is just 66 bucks per American.

I bet you could crowdfund a billion dollars in the first 24 hours, from every worker who hates being undercut by illegal labour; every cop who hates dealing with Mexican drug gangs; every industrial heartland mom who hates chronic unemployment; everyone who hates the open borders elites.

But regardless, the wall must be built, if Trump’s presidency is to be called a success.

PLUS: Our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid comes on to talk more about Notley’s new affirmative action program; and scientist and climate change critic Dr. Tim Ball and I talk about the dangerous repercussions of the carbon tax.

FINALLY: Your messages to me about the news of the week, and our StandWithTheRebel.com campaign. Thanks for supporting us!

“Amor Ftouhi has an allegedly deep-rooted hatred for America.

And on Wednesday, that rage exploded in an airport in Flint, Mich., when the Montreal father of three stabbed a police officer in the neck with a combat knife.
The 50-year-old reportedly shouted “Allahu akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great,” before striking the officer."

Forty years ago, young well-to -do secular men from Pakistan came to the UK to study and very often married Christian women and sometimes raised their children as Christians. Fast forward to 2017.

The UK Pakistani community has since become ‘traditional’. Women are covered. Muslims are taught to keep their distance from non-Muslims. Marriage with non-Muslims is forbidden. Cousin marriage is very common, with all the resulting genetic defects. And the dozens of males come who’ve been convicted for “grooming” British girls, often as young as 11 come from this community. These acts should be viewed as an attack on British society as a whole, not just on a group of young vulnerable girls.

Anjem Choudary who is now in jail in the UK for trying to recruit members for ISIS, calls himself a former “party animal” who drank and did drugs. Later on, he embraced Islamism and since then has spent his life promoting this ideology, all while collecting welfare which he recommends his supporters to do, in order to weaken the state so Islam can take over.

British Muslims have gone from being secular to traditional over the past forty years. That has created a serious problem in the UK.

“Hey remember when Canada was proud of multiculturalism”.

Well yes I do Jimmy Sarah Stallone, paid troll.
I saw the very beginning of it and yes it didn’t appear to be a threat. Mind you, we didn’t have mass immigration or illegals coming in, we had very few from Islamic countries so they quietly went about their business without making demands or interfering in our governing bodies. ‘Multiculturalism is quite a different thing now with 200,000 to 300,000 per year who come in through the ’proper’ channels most of whom are from Islamic countries, thousands more illegally. Next to none are Christian or any of the minority religions. It is out of control, irresponsible globalist preditory bullshit.

Robert Greeley,

Trump is the last guy who will make ANYTHING great again. That’s the point. His Presidency has been a complete shit show from day one. Why can’t you be objective and acknowledge that fact. What he claims he will do and what he has done are completely opposite things.
commented 2017-09-04 00:49:02 -0400
So James Stallone are you against President Trump making America great again? If so why? President Trump is trying to make the Middle Class thrive again…Are you against People making a half decent life for themselves? Let’s hear your liberal spin on this….

Robert Greeley,

I know what’s going on in the world – certainly more than you do, if Breitbart is where you get your information from.

Newsflash – not all Muslims are terrorists.

Don’t worry, the white man isn’t being eradicated and replaced with scary skin colors.

Liza Rosie,

Please explain to me why there have been terrorist attacks and situations like Charlottesville seemingly every week in OTHER countries, but none of that has come to Canada in the same capacity despite your position that multiculturalism has gone too far?

Where are the terrorists driving their trucks into Canadian crowds every month?

And please don’t bring up Ottawa. That was 2014 and was NOTHING like what other countries have experienced. There is crazy everywhere – even the woman at Canadian Tire.

Paid troll jimmy sarah Stallone saying the same crap he always says.

Andrew Stevenson, I think you will find it is more than a few hundred votes, but yes, I wouldn’t expect anything different from a man with no integrity, and Scheer has proven he has none.

Multiculturalism is a political construct, we can blame P.E.T. and even Pearson before him. What it was rolled out as, was fine initially, it is now a catch all phrase and excuse for open borders, and mass immigration. It has gone too far. It has ushered Islam into Canada, and all you have to do is look at any other country which has allowed Islam to become systemic to see what that will bring. Look what the UK has become, as just one example of the many countries who have rolled over to Islam. I do not want to see that happen in Canada. I don’t want to become ‘Istanbul not Constantinople’, if you catch my drift.

We have a Pm in Canada who plays word games with irregular and illegal..that sums it up with all the liberalist grandiosity in bi polar voters that support this pathetic, racist globalist extremist’s trudeau Govt… trudeau’s old man wore a Swastika on his helmet riding around on his motorcycle..but hey!! that’s okay according to James Stallone and Andrew Stephenson..It was a joke..Holy friggin shit??

Janice Kay,

Yes , extreme conservatives are batshit crazy and buy into the fear mongering that people like Ezra Levant deliver.

You have forgotten what it is to be Canadian.
commented 2017-09-03 18:15:10 -0400
@Andrew Stephenson….what you say about immigration policies not dovetailing with actual underserved labour shortage may well be true. The Liberal Party policies of vetting the best and brightest ….then refusing to recognize their credentials….leaving them the only options of working as nannys or cleaning toilets or taxi drivers….didn’t work.

In PEI we have an entry program for newcomers to set up small businesses. So now we see in the downtown of Charlottetown full of flag of convenience restaurants and boutiques that didn’t do a nickle’s worth of market research, rarely last more than two years, and did not provide employment to the best and brightest youth who would have rather stayed than becoming migrants themselves.

And Andrew…..illegal immigration just doesn’t cure it or offer any real hope of doing so.

Also Andrew, your response to Lisa Rosie does nicely sum up Andrew Sheer’s dilema. But it also sheds light on the fact that newcomers in large metropolitan areas tend to form ethnic ex-pat enclaves. Seeing that as trouble and conflict just waiting to happen does not make anyone evil…and terms like racist and xenophobe just don’t cut it.

Andrew, I am a cis gendered white male , and I have lived in rural PEI for twenty years. But I am and always will be “from away”. And if the others did not learn your name on the school bus, if you never experienced being stuck in the pack ice on the Abegweit ferry before the bridge was built, if you don’t know where that patch of cranberries grows behind the sand dune, if you do not give directions referencing landmarks in the past tense because they are no longer there (actually I’ve started doing that) …then you just aren’t an Islander….you are from away…..and I’m as Celtic as any of them.

That’s just the way it is if you are a migrant. It was that or kill the bullies who ran me off where I came from…and there were just too many of them.

Hey remember when Canada was proud of multiculturalism and it was awesome to go to different parts of the city to experience China Town, Little Italy, Greek Town, etc and learn about the different cultures, foods and other aspects?

Remember how we didn’t deem them of lacking Canadian values, even when the older generation didn’t speak English. They weren’t forced to assimilate and they were still seen as being Canadian.

That is one of the many things that made Canadian great, but it seems some Canadians (conservatives) forget that.

We should also get a wall between the US and Canada..We have a PM in Canada that plays word games by using irregular instead of illegal..What a pathetic PM that would use this word game..He insults all Canadians with his bullshit words..and his followers back him up with his pathetic,vile rhetoric of hate and racism..Remember..his old man wore a Swastika on his helmet riding around on his motorcycle..liberalist will ignore these facts and truth’s because they are mentally unstable and it doesn’t fit with their agenda of hate and racism of the non believer of global liberalist’s extremist’s

Liza Rosie,

The very reason why Ezra responded to the article, was because he hated it and it added to the huge hit that The Rebel has taken.

Ezra was butthurt that “his extended family” at the National Post would toss him under the bus like that by simply telling the truth.
commented 2017-09-03 16:04:07 -0400
Andrew S.—-I won’t argue with your numbers, However I will point out that Islamic voters are only a small part of Canada’s Minorities. (Although they receive most of the attention) Take the East Indian Communities of The Lower Mainland of BC and the large numbers in S. Ontario. These groups know much more about the evils of Sharia Law than most Canadian voters and their Politicians.
My point is that there is more than The Rebel trying to educate people about Islam. If Scheer ignores these groups…….IT DOESN’T MATTER, as his Party doesn’t have a chance in Hell of winning anything as long as he is leader.

“Liza Rosie commented 33 mins ago
Lorne, funny, every time I read NDP I think Liberals. There is so little difference these days. I was thinking of when Scheer turned on the Rebel and true Conservatives.”

Well, let’s put it this way. The “stand with the Rebel” campaign had 14,176 subscribers as of last update. That’s not enough to win so much as a single riding, let alone 200+. Or, put another way, that’s about 60 people per anglophone riding that identify as Rebel supporting “true conservatives”.

Scheer is willing to sacrifice that much to gain access to the far juicier centrist swing vote, which could be thousands of voters. If you live in rural Alberta, your riding’s not going to vote for anybody but conservative, so there’s no point to pandering. The centrists, mostly in the burbs are where it’s at, and guess what? Many of them are visible minority and often even Muslim.

If you were Scheer, would you support an outlet that stands for vague xenophobia when your swing ridings are often very high in visible minorities? For example, the CPC won several ridings in Brampton in 2011, 60+% VisMin, that they lost in 2015 (eg, Brampton North). He needs to win those seats back. Risking alienating a few hundred votes he can afford to lose in rural Alberta in the name of actually winning swing seats.. is kinda important if you’re actually interested in winning. They swung from winning that riding (61% vismin) in 2011 48-28, to losing it 48-33. Why? How much of that was singlehandedly lost because of Kellie Leitch’s Barbaric Cultural Practices hotline, a piece of xenophobia aimed right at those voters?

Here’s a copy of one of many comment supporting Ezra and his recent article in the National Post:

Shabnam Assadollahi
You said it correctly, Ezra.

I’ve been reading the National Post for years and have never seen anything deceitful, cheap, unprincipled and unprofessional like the way Mr Richard Warnica character assassinated you and the Rebel in which made me also vomit.

Yes I read the “Six pages long, including the entire front page of National Post. Richard Warnica worked on it for months, even calling up your schoolyard friends from when you were14 years old, looking for dirt.”

Looks like that article was a well-architecture plan and they just needed the right timing to silence ALL opponent voices painting everyone with the same brush who are against the Liberals’ policies as: “Alt-Right Supremacist”, “Racist”, “Angry White” or the Political Islam’s INVENTED term: “Islamophobe”…

Fascists and tyrants demonize every effective outspoken voice. it’s as simple as that. That’s how the Alt-left,Nazis, NeoNazis, Radical Islam, Neocons, Alt-Right, Liberal Fanaticism, Socialism, Communism and Maoism treat their citizens.

Now the Liberals and Democrats have the BLM and ANTIFA to support them when they are desperate too.

In my country of birth, Iran, the punishment for apostasy in Islam is death, but I never thought I would experience similar treatments by Western Liberal politicians, their journalists and their followers in Canada.

I have also tried many times to publish my OP-eds about the wrong treatments of Iranian citizens by the Islamic republic in Iran and why Canada should not have any ties with this terrorist regime; it was all rejected. I requested the NP to publish my Op-ed on M-103 and that was rejected, too.

In this world there is truth that a few of us identify with. But, in this world there is so much grasping for the wind falsehoods that blow so many unsuspecting simpleminded people to places of harm.
