How Rebel News will cover the Canadian election PLUS New book: The Libranos!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Any day now the Liberals will formally call the election. But who’s kidding whom? It’s been on for months.

In recent weeks, Liberal MPs have been making dozens of spending announcements, totaling billions of dollars. They're doing what Liberals do: diverting taxpayer dollars to electoral districts they're worried about losing and to the few they're hoping to pick up.

And of course the most important Liberal Party hand-out is to the Media Party — Trudeau’s $600 million bail-out. Just to take the Toronto Star alone, they receive $115,000 dollars a week.

It's not just the newspapers themselves who are partisans. Thousands of journalists are part of Unifor, a giant union which has set up a third party campaign group to funnel money into anti-conservative campaigns.

By far the biggest contribution journalists make to Trudeau isn’t their own cash. It’s their embarrassing questions.

These journalists love Trudeau and Elizabeth May, but they're still trying to decide if they hate Andrew Scheer for his rising poll numbers or Maxime Bernier for his candour more.

Right now, the outcome of this volatile election looks like it will be a Trudeau minority. If you flip just one seat per province from the Liberals to the Conservatives, you'll end up with a tie between the Liberals and the Conservatives. 

So what should we do, here at Rebel News? Should we campaign against Trudeau as a registered third party?

We’re not a political party, and we’re not a campaign group. We’re not members of any party; we are independent; we criticize any party when we think they’re wrong; and we praise any party when we think they’re right.

No; our role is not to campaign as a party, or like a lobby group like Unifor. Our role is to report the news, and give you our opinion on the news. That’s what journalism is about.

So what we are going to do during this election? Well, we’ve got a plan. We’re not going to take on the Liberal Party. That’s the job of the other parties.

We’re going to take on something that’s far worse — something that’s going to be much more vicious and much less honest: We’re going to take on the Media Party.

It means we’re going to do actual journalism. In-the-field journalism. On-the-street asking questions, like the time Keean Bexte confronted Anne McGrath about her communist past before losing by just a few hundred votes. We’re going to cover up to 100 different ridings over the course of the next seven weeks.

We’re going to provide in this election the most useful thing you can imagine — balanced coverage. I expect we will make up to 100 flights, from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island, from Whitehorse to Montreal, and everywhere in between to ask politicians the tough questions they've never been asked before. Do you remember when Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen ran away from David Menzies asking questions about the UN Global Compact on Migration? Or when Sheila Gunn Reid followed Chrystia Freeland to London?

Yeah. That’s the stuff.

I want to keep the conversation going, and I want to vet our Prime Minister. And I have. Him and his whole team.

And so I’m pleased to announce to you, my friends, my new book, called:

The Libranos: What the media won’t tell you about Justin Trudeau’s corruption.

It’s a quick read — it’s a paperback of 138 pages, or you can get the e-book too if you prefer. But it has the collected facts about Trudeau and his corrupt team, from Bill Morneau to Gerald Butts to Dominic Leblanc. All the crooks — the Libranos. All the facts that the CBC doesn’t want to tell you, because they’re worried they’ll have their subsidy cut off if they do.

There are a bunch of Trudeau books out there. Mine is the only one not subsidized by Trudeau himself.

I bet we can sell more than the love-letters by the media party.

That’s the Rebel’s campaign plan. Our budget is just over 100,000 dollars — and we’ve quietly raised half of that over the summer from Canadians who want to help us. We still need to raise the other half — for the lawn signs, for the Jumbotron trucks, but mainly to help cover the cost of criss-crossing Canada.

We can’t give you a political party tax receipt — but we can promise you we’ll make more of a difference, dollar for dollar, than any other group out there. Because we’re 100% independent.

If you can voluntarily help us out, I’d be grateful — and in return, I promise you the best journalism in Canada.

John Wick: well I guess that’s your opinion and for what it’s worth I can’t change it just like you probably won’t change mine but when you look at what Anthony put forth are you saying none of that true?

Canada ranks #1 for quality of life in the entire world in the last 4 years….4 years that Trudeau has been PM. We are also:

- #3 for Best Country to live in
- #2 for Economic Freedom
- #1 in Global Wellness

Canada doesn’t need saving.
commented 2019-09-09 22:47:30 -0400
Well Sheldon,

At least Justin will get re-elected with another majority, not a minority as Ezra weakly claims.

What are gonna do then? Cry in your cheap discount beer? 😂

Liz Rosie,

There is no scenario where Bernier even comes close to winning. It’s pretty much a waste of time for The Rebel to even cover Bernier. At best, Ezra will hammer Trudeau over the next few weeks and hope Scheer gets a few more votes. Bernier isn’t even a contender in this race. The Green Party will do better.

Anthony Matthews: you laid it out perfectly in your points of reference there is no denying the facts.

The ones that can’t awaken to see the wrong doing and the destruction that the liberal government has caused this country,and the ones that continue to support the corrupt Trudeau agenda are truly the “SHEEP

John Wick, anything could happen. We may all get a big surprise.
Anthony Mathews, one would think!

Sheldon Eisler,

America is not Canada. We are far more liberal than they are. Plus Hillary got the most votes. If they went by the POPULAR vote – meaning getting the most votes, she would be President. Funny enough Trump hated the electoral college vote, until he benefited from it.
commented 2019-09-09 22:31:42 -0400
Prime Minister Trudeau should not receive one vote in October’s election….. after you read this. “What did Trudeau and the Libs do that’s so bad?
The minister of defense is guilty of public perjury, gross negligence causing a threat to national security and should be in jail.The minister of finance engaged in insider trading – should be a 10 year sentence.The minister of immigration actively and quietly attempted to remove protections of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) from the Canadian citizenship guide, which HAD he succeeded would have provided a lawful excuse under current Canadian laws for practitioners of this crime on humanity to never face sentencing or punishment if they performed it here. DOMESTIC TERROR
1/ according to sec 83:01-83:09 of the criminal code of Canada; any political leader in Canada who incites, endorses, supports or forces ANY IDEOLOGY upon the citizens of Canada is guilty of domestic terror. 2/any citizen who is actively sending money by donation or otherwise to any org that has KNOWN affiliations to terrorists is committing domestic terror. He blew the Asia Pacific deal. He blew the helicopter deal with the Philippines. He blew the pipeline deal. He blew the deal with China. He blew the deal with Europe. He‘s screwed up immigration. What more do people need to realize Trudeau is a complete failure at everything he does? Do we need to mention the fiasco at our Southern border? – At the G7 he pledged $400 Million to Education around the world along with another $180 Million to the Global Partnership for Education in Europe. None of it is going to fix our messed up school systems here at home. Meanwhile education costs are skyrocketing for our youth making university a mountain too high for many to climb.
-He pledged $241 Million to Family Planning around the world including a $20 Million donation to the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation (because they have integrity!). This all happened while he told vets that they were asking too much.
-He pledged $2.65 Billion to climate change at the Commonwealth Leaders Summit and now he is trying to bully the provinces into new taxes to pay for this pledge.
-He pledged $300 Million to the Rohingya Refugee crisis while we have a refugee crisis of our own flooding into Quebec that he won’t address.
-He pledged $125 Million to Caribbean Reconstruction while our own infrastructure in cities is falling apart.-He pledged $650 million to Sexual and Reproductive health in Haiti and around the globe wanting safer abortions for woman while many women in our own country are left without a family doctor.-He has pledged $50 million to Palestine for flood relief when NB had some of the worst flooding in decades this past spring.
-He pledged $840 million to Syria for Humanitarian Assistance when half the native reserves in our country don’t have clean drinking water.
-He gave $10.5 Million to a convicted…CONVICTED terrorist in a backroom deal that has lead to another $30.8 Million payed out for three other fellers who say they were wrongfully detained.-And just recently he spent $4.5 Billion on a pipeline, and now the courts have ruled it shut down. Good investment for Canada he said.
Pressured Jody Wilson Raybould repeatedly & INAPPROPRIATELY with several different high ranking officials to offer SNC Lavalin a DPA instead of prosecution for repeated & sustained corruption AFTER the former AG had determined they were ineligible for such a deal. Lied about the above having ever taken place.
Replaces Canada’s old F-18s with Australia’s old F-18s.
His love of all things Castro and all things Red China.
Imposes tough regulations and taxes on oil from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland but not oil from Saudi Arabia.Every new project has to undergo strict environmental assessments…except cement plants in Quebec.Says that a proposed pipeline must consider “the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors” (what does that even mean???)Thinks older Canadians should be replaced.
Chases foreign companies (and their investment capital) out of the country like they have the plague.Chases our WW1 soldiers out of our national anthem… lest we forget.
Brings in 10s of thousands of unemployable “refugees”.
Tweets out a welcome to 10s of thousands more fake refugees from the US (even gets the RCMP to be their bellhops). All his fake refugees get better healthcare than Canadians do, while they put a strain on all our public services and contribute little.
Continuously uses identity politics…then complains about identity politics.
Forgot Alberta was a province.Called small business owners “tax cheats”.
Ask questions about money spent on illegal immigrants and he calls them intolerant racists.
We have an equalization program but he gives half of it to one province.
Says “diversity is our greatest strength” but his divisiveness tears us apart.
Screws up our trade relations with our most important trade partner because he failed to stop Chinese steel from flowing through to the states and he won’t give up supply management which hurts Canadian consumers.
$8 million for a skating rink. $4.5 billion for a 65 year old pipeline (and KM uses that money to build a pipeline in Texas)Billions added to the national debt.
Kokanee groper. Elbowed a female MP while dragging another MP by the arm in a petulant huff. Illegal migrants are just “irregular border crossers”.
Gets India to invest $250 million in Canada but we have to invest $750 million in India first.
Compared returning ISIS terrorists to Italian immigrants and says they will be an extraordinary powerful voice for Canada.
Lets Terrorists keep their Canadian citizenship.
Thinks Canada is 100 years old instead of 150.
Generally making life less affordable for the average Canadian.
Gave Canadian taxpayer’s money to Hamas.
Increasing the number of personal pronouns to 50.
Outrage over fake racist attacks, says nothing about real terrorist attacks.
Spent a little over $1.5 million on the trip to India that did nothing but worsen ties. Plus paid over $17,000 to Vikram Vij, a chef from Vancouver to prepare a meal for a meeting in New Delhi. And the only PM convicted of 4 ethics violations.
That’s the short list.”

Liz Rosie,

You are not realistic on any level. You thought Bernier would win and thought he spoke a message that Canadians would support. He is in last place.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised – sheep like you need Ezra to tell you what to think, so now that Ezra is calling it with a Trudeau re-election, your brain has been reprogrammed to accept a Trudeau minority.
commented 2019-09-09 22:28:04 -0400
Trudeau is running a campaign on lies,deceit,and corruption and anyone who would cast a vote for this Marxist is delusional period!Just remember the Dems were so sure Hillary had it locked up and look what happened.Come October you communists might be crying in your soup.LOL.
commented 2019-09-09 22:25:50 -0400
Sounds like a plan Ezra as long as Bernier gets lots of coverage as well. The contrast will be striking.
Sept. 29 in Hamilton, Bernier and Dave Rubin of the Rubin Report Live.
Should be epic.
commented 2019-09-09 22:18:00 -0400
Not at all Wick. I’m realistic, but the balance of power is up for grabs and that in itself would be some say in the House. Then there are four years from now when Scheer shows he’s going back on every blessed thing I gave him my vote to do and is actually in lock step with the Liberals. This is only the beginning and I will be happy with any result except a Trudeau majority. In that case. walls will be built.
We will see who is laughing in October. The game is on.
commented 2019-09-09 22:12:34 -0400
Who cares if you walk in a pride parade?
You walk with a 1% of the population who may have a mental disorder.
We should pity them!
commented 2019-09-09 22:11:54 -0400
People here must be dying with Ezra admitting that Trudeau will be re-elected, especially considering some here were delusional in thinking that Bernier would win and become PM. I am looking at you Liza.

4 more years of Trudeau, even with a minority.

Ezra, why no bumper stickers?

Sean Penson

It doesn’t take courage to walk in a Pride Parade when it’s ‘cool’. It takes courage NOT to Mr. Backwards Brain.

Ashamed of women’s rights? Who are you talking about? And it’s not a ‘thing’, it’s a baby. A wee person. The most vulnerable. You know, the one’s you left wingers like to champion? Remember them?

And btw, it wasn’t left wing communists that created human rights and rule of law. It was right wing Christian conservatives.
commented 2019-09-09 22:01:49 -0400
No Fred Albertans, that is not an option.

Admit defeat.

Ween Alberta off petroleum.

Admit that there are better parts of Canada able to make our decisions, and move on.

You folks have to learn to adapt, and start doing what’s best for your interests as well as Canada

At least Rebel Media admits defeat, and admits that Trudea will be re-elected…..though with a bigger majority, not a minority.

Sophisticated urban voters want a Prime Minister who isn’t afraid to be in a Pride Parade. We want a Prime Minister that isn’t ashamed of women’s rights, especially her right to abort the thing within her.

Urban voters are too sophisticated to fall for Harper’s hidden agenda championed by Scheer and Bernier
