Who are the REAL masterminds behind the Liberal attack on pipelines?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Justin Trudeau has now decided that pipeline hearings won’t just be about safety or environmental impacts. They’ll be about global warming, too.

I'll show why the Liberals' stated reasons for altering the National Energy Board process are bogus, especially the one about giving First Nations people more input -- that happens already.

So what's really going on?

Well, Trudeau's "brain," Gerald Butts, and Marlo Raynolds -- the right hand man to the environment minister -- both used to lead lobby groups that fronted foreign-funded attacks on the oilsands.

And now they run the prime minister’s office and the environment minister’s office.

Is this their chance to make all their anti-oil activist dreams a reality...?

My first guest, Simon Kent of Breitbart London, talks about the UK's latest immigrant related problem:

The number of Muslim refugees with more than wife. Will they receive multiple welfare cheques even though polygamy is illegal in Britain?


Then Pamela Geller joins me via Skype to discuss Sweden's reported plan to deport 80,000 Muslim migrants. Is this realistic or just a sop to mollify angry citizens?

She and I review shocking footage of a migrant who tried to rob an elderly woman -- and then attacked the young mother who prevented the robbery.

"This video is a metaphor for what is happening in Europe," Geller says, because it illustrates the all too common migrant attitudes towards both women and law and order.

Geller adds that security videos showing the Cologne attacks were erased by the German government!

@sam Young , but yet here you are….day after day. Ideology not with standing, doesn’t the announcement of this so called improvement to the existing reveiw process seem a bit curious or convenient. The rationale that McKenna was offering was mumbo jumbo. All of the items commented on other than the obligatory nod to climate change (is that the proper term, it keeps changing) already exists. And Sam before you comment to the contrary in regards to the review process please have some first hand experience in this area as support.

I doubt there is any negotiating with the federal government with regard to separation. Or the provincial gov. of BC or AB at least. I don’t see how it is anything but a pipe dream at the moment. We would at least have to have provincial leaders behind it, I just can’t see it, as much as I may think its the only way to save our butts out here.

Alberta has to separate to save our province and our people. I know the website “www.freealberta.com” is an excellent site concerning why we should separate based on financials, but they do not appear to be interested in helping. We need professionals help to negotiate with the federal government. Anyone up for the job.

You sound surprised Rob. The money to derail our extraction comes from the middle east as well. Some ‘First Nations’ chiefs are bought and paid for and don’t know or care, they are being used and are using the situation, quite a juggling act. Our liberal politicians have all bought into the UN club and we are fuddleduddled. Like Obambie was going to let us get our oil down to the Gulf. He was playing us. They are all playing us. I can’t believe anyone in Canada thinks we are getting anything but fuddleduddled.

Good info Rob.

Rob White, great analysis!

What took probably less than an hour of research, the lamestream media party would never lift a finger to report on.
There can only be one reason, they are parroting for their employer, and on up the chain.

Most these “anti- big oil / Anti-tar sands” groups are being funded by the US Tides foundation.(as per Revenue Canada records). Interesting note I did a quick online search to find out who the Tides foundation was and who their biggest money contributors were. The IRS receipts/ records are public and were easily found…. Are you ready??? Their biggest contributors include
1. The Atlantic Richfield Corporation better known as ARCO
2. The BP/British petroleum foundation
3. The John D Rockefeller foundation formerly Standard oil now aka Chevron and Exxonmobil

In the first two years of Obama’s administration the miles of pipelines in the USA went from 2,490,257 oil and gas pipeline miles in 2008, to 2,519,861 in 2010.

So that’s 29,604 additional miles of pipeline. According to NASA, the equatorial circumference of the Earth is 24,873.6 miles. The US built enough new pipelines to circle the earth and Obama even bragged about this fact. But which was the one that was blocked at every turn by environmental groups?? The ONE proposed pipeline that was going to carry Canadian oil (The keystone pipeline already exists, it was just going to be expanded and part of it rerouted)

Obama and the environmental groups allowed enough pipelines to be built that they would circle the earth @ 29,604 miles long, but one that was 1/29th as long @ 1,179-miles is the one that “is an environmental disaster waiting to happen, and will cause catastrophic climate change” was the bad one.

Now why are American oil companies paying people to protest the expansion and sales of Canadian oil ? Simple= Canadian Bitumen sells for less per barrel than Standard american crude. If people are buying cheaper Canadian oil then they are not buying their American oil and it cuts into their profits.

American oil companies paying off a bunch of clueless leftists through a BS charity a few million a year to “like save the planet dude!” So as to not lose 10’s of millions in potential revenue is a good investment on their part.

Ezra brings the truth.
Ezra brings fact, he brings data, he brings statistics, he exposes, he calls people out on their equivocations 1.
I absolutely do not want this quality of reporting to change, and he’s certainly not going to navigate away from truth for your soft ears, SY.

You complain of bias, but you are confusing criticism with bias. Do some reading up on critical thinking.

Dude, it sounds like this isn’t the place for you.
Go to the CBC.ca if you want the other side of the coin, lots of warm fuzzy teddy-bear stuff there for you.
We’re staying raw and honest here. ;-O


equivocations: statements that may not be literally false but that cleverly avoid unpleasant truths

You’re right Kelly Zak, I shouldn’t have said you’re on crack. I apologise. It was your comment that was cracked.

I don’t know what you’re on about Sam, but regarding Muslims, you are correct, when you said, “I am not disagreeing that there are bad people that come from Islamic countries. I will, however, add that not all Muslims are like that.”
commented 2016-01-29 18:31:39 -0500
When it comes to media bias, I have no reason to believe that Ezra is any less dishonest than his counter parts in the leftists mainstream media. I think it is safe to say that Ezra is as dishonest as the rest of the media, the only difference is, Ezra is dishonest in the opposite ideology. While I do believe that there needs to be a credible alternative to the mainstream media, a lot of times, the rebel can not be taken seriously.

If there was ever a time when Ezra proved my point, go and look up his Gypsy rant video on youtube. You know ,the video that led to him being forced to make two apologies?

News media should not be about pushing ideological motives. News media should be about bringing the full truth to its audience.

I am not disagreeing that there are bad people that come from Islamic countries. I will, however, add that not all Muslims are like that.

Liza Rosie and Ron Voss with their usual personal attack when facts and truth don’t work in their favour. Actually, I guess that’s why they ALWAYS personally attack. Your anger and sour grapes make these next four years plus even more enjoyable.

Mr. Trudeau, why do you keep misspelling “Sunni”? Just ask Gerald how to spell it.

Sam Young," I really should not have to go to multiple news sources, and have to put together the pieces, and wonder what else is missing, just to figure out what the full story really is. "

Yes you do, if you don’t do your own homework you will continue to be frustrated. People who rely only on news outlets and don’t do some of their own fact checking for the formation of their opinion, are the ones who get some of these idiots elected for us. If you’re going to vote its your responsibility to fact check some information. I understand now why Trudeau, Notely ,Wynne et al got elected. People are lazy. Source information is the only way to get a true picture and make an informed opinion otherwise your just getting someone else’s spin. The Rebel comes from a place I find I mostly agree with, but when I come here I am constantly looking for alternative source material to get more or confirm. If time or motivation make that impossible, well, then please don’t vote (and Justin wants to make voting mandatory!)

Regarding the cost of doing business in the Alberta oil patch, I think Notely is going to announce today just what her tomfoolery with royalties will mean for the oil patch. These companies have to buy leases, and if there is any way they can hunker down, and have ‘some’ production while oil prices are this low they will. Most countries realize that to keep oil production from moving where its cheaper to do business, they need to not choose that time to change the royalty rules. There is no confidence, and its thanks to Notely. But don’t take my word for it.

Regarding the Muslim flooding, maybe we’re getting special ones, and the ones we are bringing in will all assimilate and obtain employment, who knows, maybe Canadians won’t be displaced, have to accommodate to the point of lost identity, have to pay huge welfare costs, or worry about increased rape and murder. After all , msm says its going to be alright. Its just Europe getting the problem ones.

I understand that Marlo has lived in a wonderland in Banff. I would want the whole world to look like that. I get it. But lets be clear. Marlo was an infection in Banff. Oil and rail roads and his life was the poison in that special place. And wherever he goes, he will have a carbon footprint that is worse than mine. Fighting Climate change is fighting the wind, the next best thing is to fight the Liberal denial of reality and lack of action. We know that they always bluster and do nothing but hurt people. They did nothing to create LED Bulbs, or Higher Efficiency Cars or Furnaces etc. They know nothing about the Science and He has nothing to add other than his and Justins Carbon footprint.

The problem for Alberta with transfer payments is that assessments for each province are only done every 3 years. When Sean calls the NDP centre left, you know he’s way too far left to hold a rational conversation.

Radical Islam is supported by oil of which our selfie PM prefers to import v/s good jobs and the world leading environmental process. Non of Trudeau’s Muslim friends practice anything related to sound environmental policy or human rights.
Quebec’s Bombardier’s request for corporate welfare should be a sound NO. Where is the environmental impact of producing and flying this aircraft. They don’t even have the orders to sustain the company yet we are to blindly invest in this welfare with zero return and in all likely hood a plane that will be scrapped due to low order intake. Being a Quebec company there is in all likely hood and the possibility that there is corruption involved especially now that the Quebec Government (Liberal) has already invested and is asking the same Liberals in federal government to pony up. The Liberals from Quebec are not to be trusted on any level as this party is the leading Mafia in Quebec and the criminals party of Canada. The Charbineax commission was all about the Liberal Mafia and the corruption that follows Liberal politics. I would suggest elections Canada watch the Liberal fund as I expect there will be many employees who have donated to the party without knowing. We are already seeing what the unions are getting from the corrupt Trudeau government. Repeal of legislation that made unions accountable. This my friends is an attempt by the Liberals and the unions to fly under the wire and break every elections law they can in support of the Trudeau government. Then again we can not with any confidence trust elections Canada to do their jobs as this government entity is filled with the same union partisans that support the corruption that comes with Liberal governments. Remember the Liberal party of Canada is the same party that stole 250 million of tax dollars. This time it is billions. 4 billion over 5 years given to the Liberal elites at the UN to help sponsor Liberal policies. Pay back for the money illegally funneled into our last election to help remove PM Harper. Not a word from elections Canada investigations into illegal moneys from USA sponsors or UN to unions to help campaign against Harper. This is why the Liberals are gung hoe to repeal legislation of accountability. Hide the money trail.

I’m waiting for the Rebull to announce that Canada’s GDP numbers are up .3% in November, including a 2.1% growth in oil and gas extraction, which reversed months of decline. First month in and our Rt Honourable Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is already improving our economy.

Why do Albertans and the West always have to pay the price? Because they are door mats and lack gumption.

Prosperity and the USA await and all it would take is some initiative.

Sean Penson, you are really good at posting your prepackaged socialist/anti-oilsands/anti-capitalist left wing propaganda comments, but you have no ability to carry on a debate supporting your comments.

Is that because you cannot think further than the prepackaged comments? Have you even thought completely through to the logical end your leftie beliefs? I doubt it. Most lefties have not.
commented 2016-01-29 09:58:39 -0500
Sean Penson! Where did you go, Sean Penson?

Sean, you still have not countered my reply to your erroneous statement, “Alberta must maintain its payments to Ottawa as if it was still boom times.”

Have you run away when we pull out facts, like a good little brainless leftie lemming?

D MARY, “the Alberta PCs were liberals in disguise, that is too obvious”. The Progressive Conservatives were more like wolves in sheeps’ clothing. It’s almost like the fix was in: First, do what you can to destroy and weaken the Wildrose Party and become even more non-fiscally conservative to intensify electoral opposition to the PCs. Then with the Wildrose leaderless (which is still the case in my view as far as a true conservative party grounded upon conservative principles) hold an unnecessary snap election so as to pass the ball on to a real socialist government, which to no surprize, although the electorate may have naively thought otherwise, acts according to its socialist principles.

I was looking at a graph that showed Canada as having the second highest green house emissions “per capita” in the world. What a joke. I was reading a book on statistics and do you know which country was listed as having the worst crime rate per capita in the world? Iceland. It doesn’t make sense until you realize that with its low population, even a bar brawl would elevate it to the top. Canada should tell these climate change Nazis where to go.
commented 2016-01-29 09:29:30 -0500
SEAN PENSON, I too think that we should, no, NEED to become more green. To do this all we must do is add more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, to facilitate more photosynthesis. More green, ya know, leaves, that grow on plants, ya know, that produce oxygen. Or are you going to develop a huge hate-on for that, too? Well, hmm…?
commented 2016-01-29 09:27:12 -0500
Sean Penson, the Alberta PCs were liberals in disguise, that is too obvious. Alberta hasn’t had a true PC government since Ralph Klein. As for the environment, we have developed and shared with the world the strictest guidelines on the planet. The oilsands is the world’s largest cleanup project. The NDP is doing everything in it’s power to kick a suffering province. No one is saying the caused the price of oil to drop, they are just kicking Albertans when they are down, taking money in the name of a climate they can not change, and any effort they could make over say 10 years would be wiped out with one single volcanic eruption anywhere on the planet. Now, please list what “green” reference you speak of. Certainly not wind or solar, as they can’t even handle 1% of our requirements, without even addressing that we live in a northern climate. Last but not least, diversifying does not succeed over night, and to drop fossil fuels in favour of diversification in a short time is not financially possible. If you wish to adapt to some 21st century dream, do so yourself, we will have to do it slowly so as not to commit financial suicide.

RICHARD WAKEFIELD, bang on, Islam is Islam, no modifiers. A so-called ‘modertare’ Muslim (unless he is practicing taqiyya, lying to defend the cause of Islam and jihad) is a ‘hypocrite’ and according to the Koran deserves the same fate as an infidel.

The equalization mathematical formula is based upon the following;

“The basic structure of Equalization is relatively straightforward. On a per capita basis, Equalization assesses a province’s ability to generate own-source revenues and compares that fiscal capacity to the average fiscal capacity for all provinces. With the exception of user fees (fees for the use of public services), all provincial government revenue sources are allocated to one of five categories: personal income taxes, business income taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes and natural resource revenues.”
