Trudeau's Liberals BLOCK Rebel viewers' $15K donation to veterans groups — again

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

 

This story started at Christmastime: the official newspaper of CFB Borden talked about taking collections for Christmas hampers.

But not hampers for people in the neighbouring community — they were for soldiers on the base, who were in poverty. The newspaper was asking other soldiers to fill in the gap — that, instead of the government helping out poor soldiers.

We immediately decided to help, and because our viewers are so generous, we raised more than $15,000.

But when our own David Menzies went to the base to drop off the cheque, they refused it.

Their excuses were lame, and kept changing.

The truth is, the military brass — who answer to Harjit Sajjan, the Liberal defence minister, who answers to Trudeau — would not accept money from us, because we’re conservative.

So we researched an alternative, and the military charity Canada Company looked promising. They provide scholarships for children whose parents fell in combat, or summer camp for kids whose parents are serving overseas, or even just helping veterans get jobs.

We told Canada Company about the CFB Borden fiasco, and they said they’d be happy to take the cheque.

We were speaking with a great guy from the Ottawa area, named Paul Hindo. He was a realtor — who won a $22 million last year! And he's gone full-out charitable, becoming’s the interim executive director of Canada Company. He loves the military. We got along with him so well.

So David Menzies went to their office, handed them the cheque, reminded our viewers the reason we were giving it to them rather than the CFB Borden Christmas hampers. Smiles all around. Handshakes.

But then, literally as David was back in our studio, we got an e-mail from Paul Hindo, (copied to a senior lawyer at a big law firm), telling us they couldn't accept our cheque after all.

TONIGHT I'll show you what the letter said — including a demand that we destroy our video — and explain who I think is really behind this. 

Look, we’re going to give this money to soldiers or veterans — those 223 donors expect it. If we have to literally hand out your donations in hundred dollar bills to soldiers, we’ll do it.

It’s just a shame that a charity like Canada Company, run by a good egg like Paul Hindo, has been politically corrupted by Liberals who hate us more than they love the troops.

David has a website, called CallOffYourDogs.com, with a petition to tell Harjit Sajjan to stop blocking money for veterans and their families.

It’s bad enough that Trudeau is starving them of cash; it’s outrageous that he’s now blocking private charity that’s coming in to fill the void.

If you haven’t yet signed the petition, please do. David will deliver that to Harjit Sajjan’s office next month.

NEXT: Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com and I talk about the left's latest target:

Trump's new EPA chief, Scott Pruitt.

THEN, in case you missed it, I'll show you Sheila Gunn Reid's exceptional report on another fake hate crime, this one designed to make pro-lifers look violent.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Can’t the Rebel get the list of past donors to this military charity, Canada Company? If any groups were left wing, then that would be a good expose. Maybe this was a Liberal politicking manoeuvre or maybe spineless partisanship on those running Canada Charity, maybe a combination of both, but thanks to the Rebel, we know to avoid this charity in the future. Don’t throw pearls at swine.

Why not give the money to the Veterans toward their poppy fund or their play safe program? Find a Legion Hall that is desperate for funds and give the money to it?

Veteran hospital: if they still exist (if memory serves me right, Papa Doc Trudeau shut them down) donate the money to one of them.

Liberals are scum for doing this, anyone who thinks they did not influence this decision is an idiot.

The Rebel should not be made to jump through special hoops..This is appalling and UN Canadian!!!…to say the least..
commented 2018-04-07 21:59:00 -0400
Well if charities don’t want to except this money then perhaps one should go door to door and hand out gift vouchers to all of our brave men and women and their families with our thanks.. let’s see them try to stop that

Everybody has identified you..!! You’re the psychopath who watch a free-for-all in this country.. there are many like you but you stand out.! Your views are not only dangerous if implemented your views are unconscionable to a just society and their also not welcome anywhere by normal People who want normal lives and a normal future for their children..! Anything different can be considered an opposing view but you’re just a whack job who enjoys being controversial to get attention like a spoiled kid..

Peter, let’s hope this is not the case.
Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised either.

Knowing how many twisted and deranged lefties there are out there one cannot help but wonder if some Trump hater set the fire. It would not surprise me in the least.

John Rambo said, "you have also bailed when I have proven you wrong. "

You have never proven me wrong yet. Only in you minuscule twisted mind have you ever won any argument with me, not by any objective standard.

I leave the “conversations” with you because when I see you are incapable of comprehending what I am saying so I give up and leave. Just like I am going to do with this one.

I hope FDNY get this under control quickly and that no one is injured.

Shove off little rambo, didn’t have to read your lonnnnng post to know what you are obsessing about, you post like a person with OCD who discontinued their meds a week ago.

Wow Little Rambo can you ramble on… I read the first sentence and experienced deja vu X 100
I imagine the rest of it was just as repetitive.

Bye bye.

Liza, I drove an hour and there were only four of us. I hope there will be more next time. I think it’s going to be a monthly demonstration, probably on Saturday moving forward.

NDP Sucks, Tammie, you bet it’s Gordo Steele, he is as pathetic as ever, and the ultimate racist as he proved when he called burned tortured black people “burned meat,” and got the Calgary Sun Letters comments section completely shut down. And here he is, trolling here. He was a useless book keeper at Gainers who didn’t realize he didn’t own the company, didn’t take any risk, left his cancer stricken wife to die, etc… that is who Gordo is, and he’s here in all his glory.

Hi Rick Plesnik! Were you at City Hall on April 2?

The ONLY use Jihadi Justin has for the military is to be his chauffeurs on Government jets. As well as the Minister of Air Miles!

I noticed that Gordo Steele’s Facebook page is not available now.

NDP Sucks, it appears you targeted who John Rambo really is and caused him to panic and remove access to his Facebook page.

How can I tell?

Gordo Steele would not have known to deactivate his account in the hour NDP posted the link until when I just checked unless he just happen to be monitoring this page during that time.

So, “John Rambo” a.k.a Gordo Steele, you lies yet again when you just posted your name in Jimmy Reece.

Can anyone believe anything you say now? It appears that you are a pathological liar.

Oh, btw, there are websites that have crawled the Internet for many years now and have archived snapshots of websites. I can quite likely find your Facebook page regardless of you deleting it.
commented 2018-04-07 15:36:37 -0400
NDP Sucks, it sure sounds like the assessment you posted earlier is spot on.
commented 2018-04-07 15:20:33 -0400
Tammie, I still have the Gordo account on my screen. His latest hateful rants are about Mulrooney, Harper and Peter Pocklington, former owner of the Edmonton Oilers. Here is his comment about Pocklington. “ALL of us former Swifts/Gainers employees, whose dignity and pensions Pocklington tried to steal, are extremely happy to read good news like this!!”
Gordo hate runs wide and deep and he holds a grudge for a long time.

Peter Netterville commented 4 hours ago – with regards to Canada Company………

That charity is not longer functioning despite what you found – and MET is no longer finding jobs for veterans.

The contract is now gone to another company.

Cheers

This is the facebook page of Gordon Steele. He lives in Edmonton. You can often find him on the Edmonton Journal facebook page being his usual self. He does like to insult people as one of his top priorities. My assessment is that Gordo is a common troll with no redeeming value.

Little Rambo, you don’t debate…you conflate; deflect; and misdirect to derail threads. Add to that you have a filthy mouth and habitually call people vile names.

You do try to fool people, go back to your Frank Hohimer and Gordon Gekko alias’…..I called you out pretty quickly and you denied, denied, denied. You lie as easily as you breathe.

Gavin would punch you in the face if he heard your claim that what you do is “Gavin style”.

Make no mistake, you have been identified for what you are.
commented 2018-04-07 13:56:47 -0400
Jimmy aka Rambo aka Rock aka all the rest, you forgot Gordo Steele. You admit it is obviously you when you change aliases, what you forget is that the only one ever to post using aliases to show support for other troll aliases from the same source is Gordo. You did it all the time, especially on the Calgary Sun, getting so bad that they shut it down due to your racist comments about burned black meat. You offer absolutely nothing here but lies. How about showing proof that your previous aliases were “banned” here since there are far worse vile comments on here from those who are allowed to continue to post; they are not banned. You come up with aliases to provide the only support available for your other aliases. Are you paid to troll by the number of aliases you use? They want their money back because even as a troll, you are incredibly pathetic at it.

“John Rambo” keeps changing his name, about once every couple months in hopes that doing so will fool us into thinking he is a different person. However his comments remain as angry, hateful, insulting and crude as they always do.

It doesn’t take any more than a post or two to figure out Jimmy Da Silva’s (Jack Carter, Bob Rock) new alias.

Hey “John Rambo” when ya gonna grow some, be a man, and post using your real name?

John Rambo said, “All my posts are opposing views. Just sometimes I add a little Gavin McInnes style cursing, mocking or sarcasm – which you had no problem with, because you support the overall point he was making and you are a hypocrite.”

“All my posts are opposing views.”
Sure, John, sure.

“Just sometimes I add a little Gavin McInnes style cursing, mocking or sarcasm”
That may be what your twisted mind think is a Gavin style, but nope. It is not.

“… which you had no problem with, because you support the overall point he was making and you are a hypocrite”
Sure, John, sure. Whatever.
