How the NDP set up the narrative to prosecute Sheila Gunn Reid for her bestselling book

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Thanks to all of you, I have good news to share in the battle against the Alberta Government for the right for me to write a book critical of Rachel Notley.

And with that news I want to show you why I think the fix has been in for months by showing you footage of NDP's own words.

Last week I announced that NDP-appointed holdovers were hanging on in the UCP Alberta Government in the bureaucratic office of the Elections Commissioner. They're investigating me, and have been for the last 3 months, for writing a book called Stop Notley. The major issue appears that the book hurt former Premier Rachel Notley's feelings.

These Notley appointees have threatened me with “serious consequences” if I don't turn over my editorial and planning emails related to the book.

Your messages of support have been overwhelming. 

At SaveSheila.com, in just a couple of days, we blew past our initial $48,000 fundraising goal to cover the expenses we've incurred over the last 3 months. Now, we've now revised our fundraising goal for anticipated legal costs because, honestly, we have not yet even started to fight.

I still have not produced the emails demanded of me, so I anticipate one of the “serious consequences” to be a large upcoming fine.

As part of the effort to tell you why this is such an important fight, I want to show you some of the footage we've collected in the past few months of the NDP in Alberta circling around The Rebel looking for a way to strike.

So please check out this video, and you can help pitch in to cover these future costs at SaveSheila.com.

Get Kenney involved. Why are these NDP socialist snakes still wielding power of any kind in Alberta? Looks like the rat killer missed an office after the election. Go back and eradicate these vermin. I find it troubling that the government hasn’t acted yet. I also find it concerning that Canadians have had their free speech rights systematically taken away at the Federal level and they haven’t said shit. Approach Kenney in a formal public way so he will have to answer publicly. Do not give up this fight.

Sheila, have you approached Jason Kenney on this? Give him a chance to disappoint those that voted for him if he ignores the injustice being perpetrated against you by those that are his political enemies. Make sure everyone in his government is aware that money is being spent to harass and threaten you for exercising your right to free speech and journalistic freedom. If your book on Notley had anything to do with her losing the position of premier. Kenney should be helping you out in a big way.

Grubby little Marxist low life trying to silence the truth.

wow, we’re becoming more communist every single day yet for some reason canadians don’t seem to be smart enough to get it.
think about all those who fled communist hell holes for freedom here and now face it all over again.
wow, canadians are real winners! all simply bowing to trudeau and his NAZI FASCISTS!and they CONTINUE TO PAY/REWARD HIM FOR IT!!
If it weren’t so sad it would almost be funny!!
I sure as hell did not vote the mentally insane dictator in to control my life but sadly the only reason he got in was because canuks were mesmerized by his curly hair, blue eyes and legal pot dancing in their empty heads!

Sheila has good reason to worry. The bleeding hearts in the Supreme Court of Canada have ruled that even if you accurately report the actions or speech of another person, in other words speak the truth, it can be deemed hate speech, We as Canadians live in dangerous times when it comes to free speech. When the government limits or indeed compels speech as it currently does, free speech is dead.

Where is Jason and why is he not helping to support FREE SPEACH?

The questions he’s asking are in line with the law, as reviewed in your original video.

The commercial value. In other words, did you sell it super cheap, or below cost even, at which point, it suggests you put it out specifically to affect the election.

Were you planning to release it regardless of an election, hence why they want your notes. (your best answer there is that you’d been producing similar material throughout Notley’s regime and this book was no different. Yes, you’d been thinking about it for some time.)

I still think it’s sour grapes of course. It’s an admission by Notley she can’t admit to her mistakes. I think it’s an admission by Notley that Rebel has pull in Alberta. It’s an admission by Notley that Lefty’s don’t create “kinder / gentler societies”, but rather mean vindictive ones. It’s further evidence the Left can’t deal with losing, whether it’s starting the KKK after slaves one their freedom, or Clinton’s Russia collusion, or the on-going cold war after losing WWII.

The Left are dogmatic if nothing else. And what it tells us is, that we have no choice but to squash them, or be squashed. They’re in it to win it, and leave nothing on the table. That forces us to do the same.

“severe consequences for obstruction”

That’s criminal charges Sheila, not civil. You should be going on the offense and seeking an injunction to make them stop their witch hunt. If that doesn’t work, you should consider pursuing a private prosecution for THEIR attempt to obstruct justice and a judge can hear both together.

The left are completely void of imagination. If you try to debate with them, they often just throw your own words back at you for their lack of imagination. They actually got the notion of calling you guys a political party from . . . . well from YOU! Rebel refers to the msm as the Media Party all the time, and that’s the spawn of their notion.

Nice of Kenney to help one of the few Journalists that got him elected. Surely he can’t hate The Rebel more than his NDP enemies.

I admire your commitment to free speech and journalistic integrity. Stay strong Shelia you have many silent supporters. Hopefully you can sue these journalism oppressors.

I would have thought “The Destroyers” the more damaging book, because it put Albertans en guarde. All the sequel did was reiterate the warning with the actions of the government between the books, proving the prognostications of the first.

My hope is Kenney does away with this politburo bureaucracy as a cost saving measure, and introduce legislation that such a Communist Politburo is illegal.

Truth hurts but Rachel Notley’s goon squad would rather suppress it than admit their faults. That’s why I support Sheila in her fight for free speech.
commented 2019-07-30 19:46:00 -0400
They have had you in their sights from the beginning. They must be kept from abusing the law this way. Who is paying for Rachel’s lawyers ?
Go Sheila! Viva la free speech.

Grubby little Marxist low life trying to silence the truth. Sheila has them on the run and they are just one step away from threatening violence.
Pathetic Communism raising it’s ugly head.
