Canadian, UK governments host “Orwellian” media freedom conference in London — and The Rebel is there

Rebel Staff

Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is co-sponsoring a conference in London, England today, with the UK government, about media freedom.

It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad and Orwellian.

The Defend Media Freedom Conference claims 1,000 people will be there. And I’ll be one of them. And so will Sheila Gunn Reid (who has been personally blocked from attending UN conferences at the request of the Canadian government.)

You can watch ALL our reports, and support our independent journalism, at MediaFreedomConference.com.

I think our application to attend gave them a quandary:

They surely don’t want us there; but it would look quite odd for a media freedom conference to ban journalists!

Who else is there? Amal Clooney, George Clooney’s glamorous wife. There are a few other celebrities like her there. I think both the UK and Canadian government want to impress celebrities, the fancy people.

It's not easy to spot, but I dug around and learned that this whole conference is being sponsored by a billionaire media tycoon — a mini George Soros if you like — a leftist named Pierre Omidyar.

He made billions in Silicon Valley. Now he spends it on far left wing projects, like websites dedicated to attacking Donald Trump, like The Intercept and The Bulwark.

Omidyar is also up to his eyeballs with deciding who gets Justin Trudeau’s $600 million bail-out; His front group, called Luminate, actually chaired private meetings with Canadian journalist lobbyists on how to cut up the pie — and keep dastardly conservatives out of the money orgy.

But more to the point:

Omidyar is a big backer of censorship of “hate speech” as I'll tell you TONIGHT.

I recorded this monologue in Toronto. As soon as I was finished, I hopped on a plane to London, with Sheila Gunn Reid.

Then KEEP WATCHING for my thoughts on the conference so far, direct from London!

Thank you for supporting our reporting:

We wouldn't be able to take you inside this elite meeting of censors without your generosity!

Clooneys = self righteous hypocritical elitist globalist shills
Zuckerburg = (obviously) a non human reptilian alien
Tommy = freedom fighting hero of the people

- I’m sure the rampant corruption in Trudeau’s Liberal party has nothing to do with their fanatic desire to censor either. This is happening because the globalists are looking to create hell on earth – the mass murder of billions & the enslavement of the rest. If you think this is just conspiracy theory here’s a blast from the past – something that was also supposed to be a conspiracy theory – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyFVl99vbyg

Tommy received a nine month sentence but according to Sky News, after the time already served plus time off for good behavior, it is possible that he could be freed in six weeks.

Breaking news Tommy Jailed, possible free in 10 weeks????

I hope people see through and denounce the people who say “trusted” news is the only news that can be viewed on the net. They are the ones who hope to outlaw free speech and tell you whom is “trusted” there. I think the ideal of the freedom of the internet and the peoples ideas and comments will prevail, but I am also frightened these Marxists might have the connections and money to win the censorship regulations they promote.

Bruce, me lad, I was tinkin’ the very same ting. Mayhaps a shortwave set would be a good idea as well. Pretty much impossible for Justinidiot to control. Maybe I should have learned morse code when I was a kid.

George Clooney: the womanizer who hides behind his wife while she does all the talking.

Zuckerface admitted Facebook blocked all pro-life advertising etc during the election in Ireland. He’s quite proud of his decision.

Question: Was Tommy’s request for asylum in the US turned down? If he’s convicted and the US grant him refugee status, can he move to the US without going to jail?

That female Merkel used to be a guard in a East German prison. When the Berlin Wall came down she came to west Germany with a large four wheel hand cart, loaded high with suitcases and pulled by five or six prisoners. The suitcases were full of gold taken from prisoners, which she took to a bank and had it valued and deposited it. She let the prisoners go and let the gold sit in the bank for quite a few years, gaining interest. Later the gold turned in to cash, she bought her way in to West German Politics

I don’t know how anyone could listen to what that BBC reporter had to say (12:54 min.) about social media and multiple sources for news and information, how its more important than ever to have what amounts to government regulated ‘trustworthy’ sources to counter and sort the information for us, and not be shaken to the bone. Do they really think people aren’t starting to understand what they are trying to pull? Just listen to what they are telling us.

Billy Howard—- And outlaw Big Corp like banks and payment systems from denying service to conservatives and those guilty of wrongthink.
The above is already law, as Banks etc. cannot refuse anybody service. I realize that they sometimes don’t go by the law, knowing it is expensive for someone to sue them.

The Government gives these companies a Business License; it should be suspended if a company practices having only selective customers.
A rejected person should file a consumer complaint with the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services.

“A re-branding of censorship” that’s it in a nutshell!
Bloody hypocrites.

I suspect somewhere in the not so distant future there will be only one news source the CBC.And CTV , Global and the rest will be silenced.

Government should hold media freedom conferences, but not for the reasons Ezra mentioned. They should only look at regulating for an open internet to prevent Big Tech from monopolizing cyberspace with their groupthink. And outlaw Big Corp like banks and payment systems from denying service to conservatives and those guilty of wrongthink.
Censorship should be restricted to threats to individuals and groups (other than murderers, genocidal dictators, etc.) and things like kiddie porn.

I still think it’s time to shop garage sales and thrift shops for CB radios and antennas. We’re being banned from the Internet to the point where CB radio will be our only option. We might also have to launch our own pirate radio stations like the British did when the BBC wouldn’t play rock music. Of course our cause is much more important, 10-4?

Media Freedom and freedom of speech are things from the past. The Media says what it is told, or paid to say and anybody caught saying the wrong thing will, in the near future, end up in jail.

Time to Lock-n-Load, Lads.

Check out that video I posted, below. This female has her finger on the Missile Launch Button in Germany.

Thanks Keith: It’s so nice to see May and Merkel on their last legs as the damage they have done to the European part Western World may be irreparable.

Maybe Tommy will be sentenced to “time served”.

Ezra, not that it matters, but I think that was an old Joni Mitchell song, not Janis Joplin.

Conservatives define fake news as lies presented as news. Lefties define fake news as any speech they don’t like.
