“A conspiracy fact”: This foreign-funded plot killed Canada’s oil industry in under ten years

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Anti-oil eco-activists pretend to care about safety. But today, the real risks of oil and gas and pipeline and railway and tanker ship companies aren’t about safety. They aren’t technological anymore. They’re all about politics. 

I’ve told you about “The Tar Sands Campaign” before:

A 2008 campaign plan by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund out of New York. A plan to kill our biggest resource industry.

Almost ten years later, they’ve pretty much accomplished everything on their to-do list.

The destruction of Canada’s oil and gas industry  was a takeover. An inside job.

I’m just wondering — all those paid, anti-oil lobbyists who took money from the Rockefeller Brothers over the years:

Do they still receive compensation or encouragement from them, or from others?

They run the Environment Ministry, or the Prime Minister’s Office — surely your old friends have some ideas for you.

I just wonder who’s really pulling the strings...

NEXT: We'll show you Raheel Raza's M-103 testimony (read it here) she joins me in the studio about the impact this motion will have on free speech in Canada, especially for progressive Muslims like her.

Liza -
Can’t disagree. We need a much better mix of private / public, and better focus on the dollars that go in.

Ron Voss, re: reformation.
It surely looks that way to me.

Jim Webb, Get rid of at least half the ‘suits’.
Pay doctors properly to encourage them to stay here.
Allow private clinics as well, it would give those who wish to have some say in their care some option and it would make room for someone next in cue in the regular system.
Also possibly pay for some of the cost of treatment in other countries, which again would alleviate wait times for people.
Stop bringing in any more migrants, we can’t take care of our own, and finally I am heading to the States if I ever get a disease. In Canada their hands are tied when it comes to many treatment options and pharmaceuticals. Also they don’t like to waste the good stuff on dying patients, pain relief sure, treatment of the disease not so much. I too as with most people in Canada I think, have some first hand experience.

Liza Rosie, Tammi P-Z —
I don’t think my 3rd paragraph disagrees with your sentiments, it DOES need to be fixed, I agree. But in a real world of only so much disposable income would you like to shell out even more of your income every month for a private care system others seem to think is superior?
Having had a LOT of exposure to the Canadian system lately (three long family illnesses and recent deaths) I can safely say the system here is way too slow on the MRI’s / diagnostics and elective surgeries, and sucks completely when you are handing off from one specialist or department to another. Once you get your hands on an actual diagnostic though, and get onto the right track in the system, it works as it is supposed to (ie., you don’t have to watch your bank account drain to nothing).
Interesting that a wealthy family member who wintered in San Diego came home when he got sick, because he didn’t want to face the bills he would be facing in any San Diego hospital. Don’t know what, if anything, he carried in private insurance but he beat a retreat out of there and fast.
(On the other hand, he opted for knee surgery down there because the wait time here was stupid.)
People should not be made to wait in discomfort, so there is definitely room for improvement (not that I really expect Ottawa has the balls to do anything about it).
Out of curiosity, how would you choose to fix it?

Jim Webb you are a fool, you can buy private insurance in the US and things cost a lot less, our system is pathetic and wasteful. "

Our per-capita expenditures on healthcare are far lower than those in the US, and in general we have comparable to better outcomes, as well as broader coverage. The US medical system is tremendously inefficient, with high overhead – the top end of the system has no incentive to be efficient and very expensive care options are routinely handed out due to their high profit margins … despite the often complete lack of medical evidence to their benefits. Routine MRIs are one example – very profitable, and no evidence whatsoever that they do anything to improve health.

Andrew sorry but economics had little to do with it, your ignorance is outstanding. Islam is not a Race, and does your comment apply to people who criticize Christians as well? Can i call them RACIST? "
Yes, economics have everything to do with it. Most operators find it unprofitable, and others are there mostly to recover as much of their capital as they can.

I agree, that bigotry aimed against Christians is every bit as unacceptable, and even if not literally racism, is definitely in the same spirit.

“Dirk Kanis commented 1 day ago
AS the clown says:
Hating people for what they believe is indeed a form of racism.

You just decribed Islam, now go and say it is a racist religion. "

In some circumstances, yes. That does not justify acting the same way in return, unless you feel like sinking to the level of that you criticize.

. Obamacare costs are already ridiculous will only get progressively worse. It cuts down on patient options for quality medical solutions.”

The problem is that for the people covered under Obamacare, ‘quality medical solutions" were never an option, since they were not previously covered. The system has flaws that need to be addressed, but let’s not sit here pretending that the affluent have lost access to “quality medical solutions”. They have not. What has happened, is that the lower economic strata have gained access to care they didn’t have.

LIZA ROSIE commented, “I think Raza Raheel has important things to contribute however I am very leery about much of what she says about reformation. It doesn’t seem logical to me to expect reformation until the Koran is rewritten and how can that happen? How can the reformists explain away the man that was Mohammad?”
Indeed, so-called ‘reform’ of Islam, that is, to try to turn it into something that it isn’t, is impossible and thinking so is not only illogical, but close to being delusional.
Raza, as others like to do, alludes to the Protestant Reformation started by Martin Luther in the 16th century. That reformation did not come about by removing a bunch of verses from the Bible, but rather standing firm and placing authority on what the Bible said and not what men said.
To ‘reform’ Islam, one would need to strike out so many verses from the Koran so as to reduce it to a mere pamphlet, and, at the same time, one would have to erase any history of Muhammad’s life, the perfect man in Islam whose example is to be emulated by devout Muslims.

Being on a Canadian waiting list is not adequate Health Care.
commented 2017-10-11 11:03:03 -0400
Jim Webb, the idea of universal health care is lovely. Who wouldn’t want fair and exceptional healthcare for all citizens? Only problem is it is not fair and so far from exceptional that it is barely worth standing in line for. Obamacare costs are already ridiculous will only get progressively worse. It cuts down on patient options for quality medical solutions. These big wigs could come up with something that works if they looked around at the failures in other countries, and learned from them. They don’t seem to learn.
Shit care is no care.

Drew Wakariuk — the relevance of your comment is…? I’ve made no comments about the relative MERITS of public vs. private,other than to say the requirement to pay private insurance would obviously be extra cost out of available disposable income.

So because you can buy private insurance I’m a fool for saying someone in Canada making $30K Canadian a year with health insurance paid for as part of a national funded program would not have the same lifestyle if he was suddenly transported to a US system, making his equivalent salary of $24K US a year with all his other obligations, AND had to shell out extra for private insurance premiums too?

Try again. Yup, the public system is far from perfect but whatever else it isn’t it is at least part of the package. In the absence of the morons in Ottawa fixing it a separate West (whatever that entails) would be able to learn from what did and didn’t work, create a more flexible system, maybe follow the German model or have something with a better mix of public and private. Screw the Raging Grannies and the sacrosanct health care system, it certainly does need to change, but Ottawa won’t touch it because…voters and the media blitz that would follow such a move.

But to your point – I guess if it’s such a cheap and obvious choice in the US everyone there must have flocked to get their inexpensive private insurance coverage, there must not be any problem with health care Stateside. Right?
I wonder if you have you ever actually had to jump through private insurer hoops to get coverage, or have bills paid, or continue benefits? Not exactly the land of milk and honey sunshine. Once again, you’re free to actually try it out, let me know how it all works out for you.

I appreciate you took my advice to go back to your J/H social teacher to find out what you should have meant. But still screwed up, your teacher must be a millennial without worker experience. My sympathies.

eBay must love you. I see it now. You see something for Can$ 11.00 at a store, but see it on eBay for US$ 9.50 plus shipping. So you buy from eBay because you made a deal.

Regarding CoL, have you priced retail energy in the States compared to Canada? What do you think drives CoL?

You need to go back to your J/H Social teacher tomorrow for this next lesson. If the teacher actually knows.

Flat Earth —

No, I’m making fun of Me NotYou for thinking as remotely persuasive the argument he put forward in other posts that, because he can open carry a big gun and has (allegedly) made “unimaginable wealth”, therefore everyone here will be able to carry a big gun and have vast wealth, and that therefore it is a slam dunk everyone here should stampede out, overthrow the “Progressivist-Sodomites” (his terms) in government, and join the US.

As unvarnished comment, good for him. As anything put forward in support of his position, are you kidding?

Any more muck you’d like to try to rake up?

Canadian Mongrel —

Um yeah, of course they equal the same amount, nitwit. Didn’t think I’d actually have to spell it out, but investments and salaries don’t exist just to look pretty on paper now, do they? Hopefully they are used to, oh I don’t know, actually buy goods and services for day to day existence. Point is, will a $30K Canadian in an Alberta / Saskatchewan scenario get you the same quality of lifestyle as a $24K equivalent US salary as an American? Will the $100K you put aside here go as far as an $80K US equivalent?

Because of healthcare alone you know they won’t. If you’re a 1%er you’re probably good either way, but a bit of a struggle for anyone else.

But by all means feel free to go Stateside and experiment.

- Obama was fighting to stop American offshore drilling while at the same time his pal George Soros had invested about $1 billion into Brazilian oil company Petrobras, which was moving ahead with plans to drill offshore. Obama went down to Brazil to offer $2 billion in loan guarantees to Petrobras’ offshore operations. Once he was caught Obama claimed it was all being done by the Import-Export bank & he was just there by coincidence (the “I didn’t know about it until I saw it on TV” defense). Snakes like Soros own politicians all over the world & manipulate events to line their pockets & increase their power. Trudeau is a globalist – he’s owned by foreign energy concerns.

- The Trudeau Liberals have managed to screw Canadians from sea to sea to sea. New Brunswick should be energy rich. Liberals would rather have them dependent on transfer handouts.

- Trudeau’s favorite country, China, is clamping down Islam (seizing Qurans & prayer mats in one of the more recent events). Where is the condemnation from the Liberals? They’re willing to destroy free speech in Canada in order to ensure Muslims are never offended in Canada but not a single condemnation of China? Could it be that the goal is to eliminate freedoms & Islamophobia is only the tool for them to do it with?

We have to stop equating race with ideology and equating criticizing Islam with being racist. I am the same race as Raheel Raza and Tarek Fatah because genetically we are similar. THeir ancestors were Hindus. I kept my indigenous religion of over 5,000 years while their ancestors converted out of jizya, slavery or the sword. Please call out Raheem Raza when she makes this false equivalency. Sure there are some people who hate anyone who is not a Christian or Jew but that is not racism, as these same people embrace Black Christians or Pakistani Christians. SLoppy thinking. I like Raheem Raza but she thinks MUhammad is great. WIll she criticize him? WIll she handle a debate with Ali Sina on Muhammad’s various crimes?
commented 2017-10-10 13:58:13 -0400
When Raheel Raza appeared before the Committee, Liberal MP Julie Dabrusin burned up six minutes of her time of seven minutes to ask questions with bladder that included telling Raza several times that she needs to understand that the Committee cannot make legislation as if Raza would be so naive to think so. After that Raza was left with a pitiful one minute to eventually answer the one question thrown at her. As a point of order Conservative MP David Anderson complained to the chair that the Liberals were ‘filibustering their time’, more intent on telling the witnesses rather than listening to what the witnesses have to say.

As has been repeatedly pointed out, even at the Rebel, Canada’s energy sector has not been “killed”. Bitumen has, but that was a question of economics as much as anything else. Expensive business, they are, and in current and forseeable economic circumstances, the return on investment period is too long to be a safe investment. In a world where oil demand is slowing and has a nontrivial chance of declining in the next 20 years, a 50 year project suddenly becomes unappetizing when you’re the most expensive barrel on the market. Guess who gets squeezed out first?

Conventional and shale resources have done quite well but have a shorter ROI period that makes them viable.

It’s getting very old hearing anti islam is racist. Islam is an ideology and is not a race. "

I’m not sure semantic nitpicking really justifies discrimination of any name. Hating people for what they believe is indeed a form of racism, even if not strictly a literal interpretation of the term. That this is your argument, illustrates how weak the argument really is.
commented 2017-10-10 10:55:14 -0400
Raheel makes the point, as I believe Tarek Fatah made, that a Muslim should have the right to criticize Islam. Well, I, as a non-Muslim in a western democracy, should also have that same right. Just as I welcome criticism of my religion from any and everybody, I hope that Raheel and Tarek also are willing to have non-Muslims be able to criticize Islam. She made her point a couple of times with Ezra – I hope that she agrees with me and is not limiting criticism of Islam ONLY to Muslims.
I agree with John Ball also that this “racism” card is a red herring, and I am surprised that both Ezra and Raheel don’t seem to pick up on that. Raheel, to me, does not sound very convincing and I wouldn’t doubt that her testimony was written off in Ottawa. Nice lady, likely sincere, just not convincing enough. Too many inaccuracies in her talk with Ezra.

I agree Jim-Bob, your idiocy made for a great early morning laugh! You clearly figure that if property or investments are priced in American dollars, then the property or investments are worth less than if priced in Canadian Dollars. You must think the property and investments are even less valuable if priced in Euros or Pounds. But if priced in Dong you would be a billionaire.

What a LAMO idiot you are!!! Pretty much negated any other comment you have under any identity.

When you go to school today, have your Social Studies teacher explain real value to you. For example, property worth US$100 000 has the same value as if it were priced CAN$125 000 or 85 100 Euros…idiot!

And there, ladies and gentlemen, may be the biggest reason for steering clear of the States. The inherent ignorance of folks typified by Me NotYou, wherever he may actually live, of Canada and Canadians generally.

In another post elsewhere his main reasons for wanting Alberta / Saskatchewan to join was because he could open carry more firepower than “any Canadian could dream of”, to protect his “unimaginable wealth”. Such eloquence.

No logical reasoning, no crafted arguments, not even aware of the irony of trying to sell the US as a possible option while at the same time classifying Canadians as “completely retarded”. Whatever his true identity, location or nationality, a bellwether of what is likely to be faced to some degree or other from even literate, well-meaning folks (lets you out, Me NotYou) who may have traveled here on holidays once upon a time but other than that don’t concern themselves with Canada generally.

Thanks for playing Cleetus, your efforts continue to amuse while at the same time ensuring the US option remains the least attractive.
