In 24 hours, Trudeau threatens news media he hates, bribes news media he likes — and he’s coming to kill The Rebel

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Look what Trudeau tweeted two days ago:

"Social media platforms must be held accountable for the hate speech & disinformation we see online – and if they don’t step up, there will be consequences. We launched Canada's new Digital Charter today to guide our decisions, learn more about it here”

I’ll get into that “digital charter” in a moment. So that’s the stick. But there’s a carrot, too, and that came yesterday:

Federal government names organizations that will help spend $660M journalism fund.

(Just last November that was $595 million, remember? They haven’t even spent it yet, and it’s already now $660 million. That’s Trudeau for you, isn’t it?)

You’ve got a Liberal party that’s so low in the polls it’s coming in fourth in by-elections.

The Media Party is now reporting on things they would have ignored.

A campaign of demonization and name-calling won't be enough. It didn’t win it for Rachel Notley in Alberta last month.

I’ve been warning about Justin Trudeau’s plans to censor the Internet for years.

So let’s look at what’s coming now:

TONIGHT I'll take you through Trudeau's so-called "digital charter."

Most of it is gobbledegook from clueless politicians and bureaucrats and lobbyists and scammers. I think this might be like what the inside of Trudeau’s mind looks like, along with lots of marijuana.

And here are the friends of Justin who will purse out the $600 mil:

The eight associations that have been asked to select a representative to sit on the independent panel by the middle of June are: News Media Canada, the Association de la presse francophone, the Quebec Community Newspaper Association, the National Ethnic Press and Media Council of Canada, the Canadian Association of Journalists, the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec, Unifor and the Fédération nationale des communications.

So those are lobbyists. They will divide up the pie. Huge disproportion in Quebec.

But look at that one: Unifor. Run by Jerry Dias. The union that publicly declared it was going to war against Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives. Unifor, that is taking huge amounts of their members union dues, and using it to campaign against the conservatives just like last time.

So let’s recap:

$600 million (or is it $660 million) for Trudeau’s friends. Trudeau’s ally Jerry Dias, the Unifor boss, will choose them.

Censorship — through “voluntary” private agreements with internet companies like Twitter and Facebook and YouTube.

What’s in those agreements? Don’t worry your pretty little head.

I mean, you can trust Justin Trudeau, right...?

NEXT: James O'Keefe of Project Veritas joins me on his legal victory, having won an important defamation case. 

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Well done, Ezra! As I told you at Canada Christian College during Pamela Geller’s visit, after graduating at UBC I returned to my native South Africa. For ten years through the press that to its credit proved vastly more free than that of Canada despite a government with repressive instincts, I bluntly spoke my mind on apartheid and other things. Not wanting to live under Marxist ANC rule I returned to Canada – and to this now sham democracy with its pitiful media, Human Rights Commissions kangaroo courts, indoctrination of children through left-wing and LGBTQ curriculum, and a prime minister who covers for Islam, not least by making out that the real enemy are conservatives and the right. The lie to this is all too evident.
The threat is Islam and militant Muslims, not conservatives who are branded “ultra-right” by the ‘ultra-left’ media, or right wingers, or white supremacist who I have yet to encounter, and who have yet to murder and injure on the Danforth, stab soldiers in a military recruitment office, or mass as did Muslims in Mumbai (172), Paris (132), Nairobi (71), Nice (87), Orlando, London, Manchester or New York. Who but disgusting liars and frauds perpetuate the “ultra-right” narrative? Well, Trudeau and his lackey frauds of the left do with all too willing acquiescence of the pitiful CBC and CTV.

- So a board handpicked by Trudeau’s Liberals will decide who is producing enough Liberal propaganda to get a taxpayer handout & who’s printing too much truth & needs to be punished. Acting like a dictator will not help him – it will make people like him even less. The Canadian Association of Journalists has already announced that it may pull out of Trudeau’s censor board –

- It looks like James has another trophy to hang on his wall. O’Keefe & has team have been doing great work. Glad to see they’re still winning & winning big.

“Scheer’s absolute silence on this issue is the REAL story.”

Scheer is showing his true colors, a light shade of Red.
commented 2019-05-24 12:00:41 -0400
Scheer’s absolute silence on this issue is the REAL story. It goes far beyond simple cowardice (which he has in abundance). It is irrefutable proof that he, just like turdo la doo, is comfortable with the notion of a bought-and-paid-for press.

So go ahead, vote for him.

In the Battle of Cut Knife Hill the indigenous forces enjoyed more success than at the Battle of Fish Creek, but in the end the story was the still similar to Fish Creek. When it came time for Colonel Otter to order his withdrawal, the Canadian militia withdrew in good order. Esprit de Corps Military Magazine concluded “Poundmaker is generally credited….for letting the soldiers go….though it is just as likely his warriors were too few or too low on ammunition to make it worthwhile”.
My own feeling is Poundmaker was not being a compassionate peacemaker but rather was content to take his success at Cut Knife and preserve his forces for another day.

What does Michelle Rempel have to say about media/citizen censorship you might ask? Crickets. I think she is already on summer break. Nobody, nobody is fighting against this.
Who is going to make sure Justin doesn’t fix the vote. Who will even know?
I guess that is the plan.

Keith, these power tripping globalist tyrants, live in an alternate universe. She probably believes it.
commented 2019-05-24 10:10:28 -0400
Andrew Scheer is a disgrace. If he doesn’t do something now, we will know for certain that he is in on the fix. Is there no one who has any power, on the side of free speech? It is so frustrating that Max Bernier PPC, is getting little or no press time.
commented 2019-05-24 10:06:37 -0400
Theresa May in her farewell speech stated that she did her best for “The Country That I Love” her voice then broke and she turned away from the camera ant walked back into 10 Downing St……..The Country that you love Theresa? Then why the hell did you do your best to give it away to the Marxist scum who control the EU…Love my Butt!

I wonder who the brainiacs in Brussels have chosen to replace May.
If Brussels stays out of it, the only candidate with half a brain is David Davies, and he is as Milk-toast as Sheer.
commented 2019-05-24 09:50:06 -0400
Crickets from Scheer on this. Trudeau proposes censorship of social media before the election — and Calgary MP, Stephanie Kusie, the Conservative critic, appearing in Committee in February voiced concern that the plan doesn’t go far enough and fast enough.

And Trudeau’s censorship has begun! When I tried to include a link to a Rebel Media report from February 20, 2019 (“Trudeau proposes censorship of social media before the election — and Scheer says the plan doesn’t go far enough!”), on someone’s Facebook page on this, it was blocked with the reason being that it “goes against our community standards”.

What.s that lassie, Justine pooped in the town well. That,s ok girl, they are hauling water from the well to his castle right now.

My bad, the Poundmaker claim arises from the Battle of Cut Knife Hill, not the Battle of Fish Creek.

I have examined the claim that Chief Poundmaker spared the lives of retreating Canadian Militia at the Battle of Fish Creek by ordering his Metis and Sioux warriors not to pursue them.
This particular claim is full of Sitting Bull.
After exchanging fire with the with well entrenched Sioux and Metis for the better part of a day, although his officers wanted to launch a bayonet charge against the Sioux and Metis, General Middleton decided that the enemy would likely withdraw from their positions overnight anyway and that a frontal assault would not be necessary. Instead, he chose to withdraw his forces from the line of battle to a more defensible overnight campsite nearby. This maneuver was performed in good order with the 10th Royal Grenadiers providing cover by holding the line while Middleton’s other forces withdrew. There was no headlong retreat which could have bee exploited by Poundmaker. Had his forces emerged from their positions they would have paid a heavy price at the hands of the Grenadiers. The next day the Sioux and Metis had in fact withdrawn as Middleton had expected.

And I would like to have an honest commentary on this by the likes of Conrad Black who is basking right now in the “sunshine” of being exonerated by the President Trump…

Well put Karen MacLeod… We are indeed at a serious juncture in our nations’s history as to what “truths” will prevail and which will be be swept under the carpet of our Boy Blunder’s take on history… The situation is indeed at a critical point in our nation’s history and it is dismaying to witness each and every day how the media is wiling to play along with our national demise….

i when to the Rebel news site and it was not updated at 2000 hr PST. Is it now locked out?
commented 2019-05-24 02:44:35 -0400
Hey Justin and Guillon , if either of you power tripping twerps ever wants to step in the ring, let me know. We can have the Rebel broadcast it. LMAO! I know those cowards would never go against anyone who can fight back though.

So sick of these Liberal tyrants, if Canada votes them in again this country deserves to die.

If Scheer wins and uses this for his own means then expect the Left to attack this body. It will suddenly be a hate crime.
commented 2019-05-24 02:33:31 -0400
All the left wing sheep are too dense to realize this will affect them as well, their deluded view of reality makes them think they will be immune. Part of me wants Justin to win again to teach those clowns a lesson.

Its shocking how much The Rebel and Project Veritas have to pay for legal fees. I’m Glad we are winning all the lawsuits but its such a burden. Here’s hoping to the end of the perpetually offended crybabies.
commented 2019-05-24 01:37:31 -0400
The plan is for Trudeau’s minions, like Diaz, to push Scheer into NOT defending the Rebel and others when the dictatorial deplatforming and censorship really takes hold. If he doesn’t defend our freedom of speech and press, he will lose a lot of support to Bernier.
Scheer needs to take a page out of the Trump playbook and stand up against a biased MSM and support conservative media…or else we get another 4 year Trudeau majority, IMHO.
BTW, I also watch Rebel on BitChute. Everyone should get a BitChute acct for when YouTube bans you and the website disappears.
commented 2019-05-24 00:58:30 -0400
Ezra….the thought of what the cost to the tax payer for this rhetoric called a digital charter would be mind blowing I’m sure. I’m contacting my MP to ask for this info to be requested.

Bring it on. We are an American company and have the first amendment on our side. We refuse to bend the knee to authoritarians like you who want to silence dissent on the internet. We will continue to provide a platform for Canadians—and all people— to speak freely.

Thanks Keith. I guess I can look forward to the results on Sunday then.
