FEED OUR TROOPS: Help raise $10,000 to give to the Christmas Hamper for soldiers at CFB Borden

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Do you know how badly Justin Trudeau is treating our Canadian Armed Forces?


A story was published in an official publication of the Canadian Forces Base in Borden, Ontario. The story is called "Seasonal Sharing Basket Campaign”.

Here's the first sentence: 

It is once again that time of year with the colder temperatures and the kids back in school, the base will be kicking off this year’s Seasonal Sharing Basket (SSB) Campaign for 2017.

That sounds great — our soldiers give so much to us, and now they’re even giving to Christmas hampers for the poor. Amazing. But read the next sentence:

The goal of the SSB campaign is to assist those members of the CFB Borden Defence Team, residing within the confines of CFB Borden and local area, who are experiencing a time of need during the holiday season. The privacy and confidentiality of individuals utilizing the support provided by the SSB will be respected. Individuals in need of support and interested in further details can speak with their unit Padre.

So this isn’t to help some strangers down at the homeless shelter. This is to help CFB soldiers who are so poor, they literally can’t afford to feed their families. 

Justin Trudeau pays our soldiers so little that they are forced to ask for charity.

Trudeau just gave $10.5 million dollars to Omar Khadr, a convicted Al Qaida terrorist, who murdered a soldier. But Trudeau won’t even pay our troops enough to feed their families. Trudeau has social programs to help ISIS terrorists coming back to Canada — with art, and poetry — Trudeau’s got millions for Islamic terrorists, but not enough for our troops to feed their families.

So we want to raise $10,000  for the CFB Borden food hamper. Please donate here

Justin Trudeau hates our troops. He’s pushing them into poverty, while making terrorists into millionaires.

But let’s you and me do the right thing — let’s give to the Christmas Hamper for soldiers at CFB Borden.

That’s what I thought Moose. Revert to your default position and argue nonsense. You have no credibility in my opinion. None.

My repetition of petitions is just a mirror of the petition requests here at the rebel.

As for Ezra, there are some things I agree with him on, and some that I don’t. I typically agree with Ezra when it comes to his opinions on things related to the news. I disagree with Ezra when it comes to how he runs his business.

And I was never in the military. God forbid.

Space Moose I posted what I did without seeing your last post. I meant what I said about your previous posts on this page and Rebel/Ezra bashing. However your comment below is one that I would never mock. Not that I agree. If you do have ptsd, can I surmise that it is not from a stint in the military?

Space Moose you are a bloody drama queen, Have you got your attention fix for the night? There is a term for people like you, I mean aside from, drama queen.‘Wrecker’ you are a wrecker, so is Jay Kelly but in a different way. If you are unhinged you should seek help somewhere else, You are just repeating yourself here. I doubt it is doing you any good. Your misery is your comfort, and sharing it is what you seem to love to do.
We don’t care if you don’t like petitions or about any of the other things you obsess about and repeat and rehash and regurgitate .We don’t care about your suppositions.

Why look, Drew only posted two consecutive posts, as opposed to his usual three or four in a row. Military is only an essential service when you need it. If we ever get invaded, then I will say we need to have a standing military. Besides, we live in Canada. We can always pay the AMericans or mercenaries if we need it. Canada needs to adopt a neutral or non interventionist stance. We don’t need to be blowing money on what is happening half way around the world. It is not essential, so therefore, I don’t think raises are due. I would be perfectly content if our military is limited to coastal patrol.

I do indeed have PTSD. It also turns out that I don’t have to or want to give you any proof of my medical condition. You can believe me if you want. I have no idea why you are so fixated on it.

False statements Jay Kelly, false and untrue. I think they call it defamation. You might want to stop it now.
commented 2017-12-13 02:23:00 -0500 · Flag
Space Moose. I am calling you a liar on your statement that you have PTSD. Provide some details of your symptoms and what treatments you are receiving. Hurry, you are on the clock now.

Space Moose what if no one bothered to join anymore and the time came that you needed their help, not just as fighters , but for disaster services, and no one showed up to help?
commented 2017-12-13 02:09:56 -0500 · Flag
Space Moose why shouldn’t they? They have been stripped of other benefits while lazy government hacks have not.
commented 2017-12-13 01:57:36 -0500 · Flag
And just what am I lying about?

I don’t think the military should get a raise. You are forgetting conservative principles 101. Higher government employee pay equals higher taxes.

If you want to donate your own money or a can of turkey, then that is fine. But don’t expect me to want to fork over any of my tax dollars.

It is the Privates who truly deserve a pay raise to match their work and commitment. Maybe then these food banks for military will turn into food hampers from the military. It can be done because it has been done in the past but sometimes the big boys and girls in Ottawa need to step out of their bubble and see what’s going on at the bottom level.

Space Moose. You are nothing more than an unhappy, whining, complaining, arguing, bitter and twisted bullshiter. I bet you don’t have a friend in the world because nobody would put up that crap. Karma truly is a bitch ain’t it Moose.

Jay Kelly, once again you intentionally misunderstood the report!
Merry Christmas!

As I mentioned 24 hours ago, Ezra Levant should be ashamed. The men and women of CFB Base Borden have a pre-Christmas fundraising campaign to help out any families who may have special needs during this holiday season.

Across Canada such campaigns are held. It helps families who could really benefit from food and monetary donations at Christmas.

Also, at this time of year, people have a desire to help their neighbours in need.

How shameful that Ezra Levant singles out this particular fundraising campaign and makes it sound like the very organizers are trying to raise money for themselves. And he is accusing military families!

Shame, shame, shame. For the rest of us, a good reminder that if we charitably donate money or food we do not identify the recipients.

Space Moose, NDP Sucks called you on your claim, doing so doesn’t say squat about his true feelings about PTSD. I think you are a liar, it seems he does too.
commented 2017-12-12 20:50:52 -0500 · Flag
I never asked you for a pledge. Nice to see how you truly feel about PTSD. I am sure your soldier buddies are thrilled to hear about it.
commented 2017-12-12 13:10:10 -0500 · Flag
Why would you set up anything? Because of your perpetual whining and claim that you have PTSD. You seem to have a problem remembering your own BS which is part of your personality disorder. I withdraw my pledge as it is better in my pocket than yours.
commented 2017-12-12 11:45:28 -0500 · Flag
Why would I set up anything? You can keep your one dollar. Sounds like you need it more than me.
commented 2017-12-12 10:26:55 -0500 · Flag
Space Moose. Why don’t you set up a go fund me for yourself. You can probably use the Rebel as your platform as you have already stated you have PTSD. May I suggest you also get checked out for your personality disorder. You have my pledge of one dollar.

In case you have not noticed, news is always presented in hyperbole. So when I speak in hyperbole, it is meant to match the tone of the news, especially that of the rebel.

I think there is a lot of truth in what Caolan Robertson said. The only part that I disagree with him, is when he claimed that Ezra wanted to sue somebody into committing suicide. On that point, the only thing Ezra said was that he wanted to ruin that person’s life with a lawsuit. At a later point in time, Ezra did admit to firing Lauren Southern. He did not say why, but I think it has to do with the fund raising for the Iraq trip.

Ezra already makes enough money off me from you tube ads or the advertising that appears on this web site. I don’t need to go out of my way to donate to the rebel or any of their causes. The more you donate, the more incentive you give to the rebel to keep asking us for donations.

Ezra Levant should be ashamed.

The men and women who serve in our Armed Forces at Base Borden, Ontario, have a Christmas fundraising drive for Christmas hampers. They are hoping to gather food items but primarily cash to help families in need this Christmas.

There are many families in the area around the base who could genuinely use the help. There are also some military families who could use the help.

Ezra Levant is trying to make this a political issue.

Better to consider those who are actually in need of help this Christmas.

Space Moose said in part, “Being open about something does not mean you are doing the right thing. A killer who is open about having murdered somebody does not make them a better person.”

Another moronic post Moose.

“your rights” are you kidding!?

You believed Caolan concerning Lauren Southern, Wow! That lie was addressed by Eitan Gilboord some time ago. The video was not behind a paywall, guess you didn’t pay attention.

Anyway, your incessant mewling about petitions & causes is another indicator you are a very immature person, in addition to your hyperbolic posts.
commented 2017-12-11 17:49:41 -0500 · Flag
Of course Ezra is open about asking for sigs and money. That is how he gets people to turn sigs and money over. Being open about something does not mean you are doing the right thing. A killer who is open about having murdered somebody does not make them a better person.

Just because I am not a premium member does not mean that I have less rights than you this side of watching some pay wall videos. I loathe the petitions and endless fundraising. I think it ruins journalism. I can tolerate people just asking for donations to keep a business running. Beyond that it reduces the quality of the work. The moment I hear some rebel contributor ask us for a petition signature or money to fund some cause, I stop watching the video.

How many times have we heard the rebel pitch. Unlike the CBC, we don’t get a billion dollars of your money. So pay up if you want to hear the other side of the story. And we are starting another petition. Once we get enough of your signatures, we will hand deliver it to some politician, head of a company or to Ezra’s own staff. Remember the time that Ezra wanted us to sign a petition to give to his own staff? Think about that one for a moment. When this is the case, activism is no longer the priority. It is about collecting our contact info so that we can get spammed with donation requests. Open your eyes to what is going on here.

How do we even know where donation money goes to? Remember the Iraq trip and how Ezra asked us for money? And then he got enough money, and Lauren Southern refused to make a video asking us for money? And then Ezra fired Lauren for that reason. All because Ezra wanted more money by getting his own staff to make a deceptive video. Good on Lauren for having the integrity for refusing to make the video.

At the end of my day, I know where my money is going to. Do you?
You can guess my generation al

Space Moose said in part , “And why do you speculate on my generation? You should not jump to conclusions.”
Fair enough, did I jump to the right conclusion about a self-diagnosis (or exaggerating to make a point) and, what generation you fall into?!

You are not a premium content subscriber and welcome the freebies…take the news and leave the rest then.
Ezra has always been open about the Rebel’s activism & crowdfunding. So, instead of defaulting to your regular posts when there is a cause, how about, commenting on what was in the report!
There are many alternative media sites who crowdfund or ask for support. As always, the person chooses to support it or not.

Whether or not you choose to believe me or ot is your choice. And why do you speculate on my generation? You should not jump to conclusions.

I just want the news to be the news here. No need for petitions or fund raising.
commented 2017-12-11 09:05:10 -0500 · Flag
Space Moose, I wasn’t expecting you to provide a name… it was to ask if you have indeed seen a psychologist or psychiatrist, undergone assessments/testing and were diagnosed with PTSD.
I think you are one of those people who claims to have this disorder when in fact you don’t.
It seems there are far too many millennials who use flagrant exaggeration to prop up their position.

Red alert Moose, not all penny pinchers are bitter or have an enormous chip on their shoulder, you do though.

Anyway, the goal for the Christmas hamper program for soldiers at CFB has been surpassed.
commented 2017-12-11 02:45:11 -0500 · Flag
And why would I do that? I know what my opinion is on the matters of military and rebel activism.

I think you people give the military too much credit. And I think the rebel should just stick to news.

Nothing wrong with being a penny pincher. Ezra is a penny pincher and I commend him for it.

Why would I disclose who gave me a mental health diagnosis? I somehow doubt that will change anything. It is not like any of you are going to mail me a care package.

Space Moose. Get Jay Kelly to answer your concerns. You two speak the same mumbo jumbo.
commented 2017-12-11 01:52:26 -0500 · Flag
So is the issue here military or PTSD? Not everybody who goes through the military has PTSD. Not all people that have PTSD have served in the military.

If somebody legitimately has a disorder or a disability then the system will provide support. Or for that matter, it is grounds for receiving some sort of disability benefit. But that is different than the rebel asking us to send a care package to the military.
