Rebel UN : We're expanding our coverage of the United Nations

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I’m pleased to announce that The Rebel is expanding coverage of the United Nations.

We’re going to send a team of four reporters to another UN conference — their nanny state conference being held next month in New Delhi, India.

We’ll be sending fan favourites Faith Goldy and Lauren Southern. And a two-person crew, our managing producer Hannah Vanderkooy and our cameraman and editor Oliver Mackenzie.

It's the World Health Organization’s big conference — called the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

It’s the nanny state equivalent to the big UN global warming conference in Marrakesh. But it’s not just about smoking — it’s a template for global taxes and regulations on soft drinks, snack foods, salt, anything the UN wants to regulate.

If you believe in our trip to Delhi, and our plans to cover more of the UN, then please help us out by crowdfunding the expenses for our trip

Unlike the CBC, who get $1.5 billion each year from taxpayers courtesy of Justin Trudeau, we’re 100% user-supported. So if you don’t think this is a good idea, we won’t do it — we can’t afford to do it without you.

But if you do think it’s important that we cover the UN — if you think they need a good dose of independent journalism, please click here and make a donation.

We can’t do it without you.

@ Barry Mothershead…. With the comedic commy ndp in power in Alberta now, it will be requisite to fly the UN (Useless Nuts) flag higher than both provincial or the Canadian flags. Soon Mr. Metrosex in Ottawa will be out touting that policy….it is,after all, 2016.

On occasion Anonymous has actually spit out a morsel of common sense. On occasion. Now I see he is back on the war path. What is this “conflict of interest” that you speak of Anon? If the Rebel needs financial assistance to attain the coverage on stories that its supporters desire, and the supporters are willing to assist financially, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? Keep your money if you wish, but shut the fuck up. If you have such a hard on for Ezzra challenge him to a duel. Or a debate loser.

DJBT and the rest

I love it when news sites reach out and ask for financial support. I am so sick of paying for CBC snooze news. The RT

Fine, don’t support the Rebel and get your biased news paid for by all others through taxes. It’s your choice.
RT News is even more objective and current than CBC. But have your wish.
One other thing, The Rebel doesn’t prohibit comments whereas CBC constantly refuses to authorize comments which are opposite of heir biased opinions. That’s the way you want news to be played out. Good luck to your freedoms.

Anonymous…..you are an example of….the lights may be on but nobody is home. The great thing about The Rebel is,………wait for it…………you don’t have to donate. It really is that simple there simpleton.

I’ve never really trusted the U.N. and one important question I’d like answered is why are there U.N. flags being flown on taxpayer funded schools around Alberta? To me the U.N. is a political ideology and flying their flag on government buildings is similar to Germany in the thirties when they started flying the Swastika. At the time that was looked upon as harmless as well and look what it turned into.

You’re not really that thick are you? You’re doing this just to be antagonistic and sarcastic, correct? Why waste your time here on The Rebel? Don’t you get more satisfaction from the CBC’s and Toronto Star’s websites where you’re at home with biased, mindless drivel?

Good job, Rebels. I am a proud subscriber.

I could not be more proud of the work you are all doing. This is important and it is getting bigger.

Anonymous it is a model that is paid for by the people who wish to support it. UNLIKE THE CBC WHICH I DO NOT WATCH AND AM FORCED TO PAY FOR AGAINST MY WISH.

Before I even finished reading the headline, I already knew that Ezra was going to ask us for money.

What kind of a business model is this? Constantly panhandling for money, and saying that the rebel does not get government funding. The issue that I have is that the news gets enmeshed with all the fund raising. Nope, no conflict of interest here.

CYNTHIA HOAG , if you come on here and pledge a contribution to the REBEL , I’ll look at your billboard
commented 2016-10-27 21:51:24 -0400
Yeah , I’m in EZRA , this is going to be great entertainment, crowbarring the truth from the lungenpressers and the un thugs
commented 2016-10-27 19:55:51 -0400
Maybe Cynthia Hoag can contribute as she is doing so much better financially than the rest of us.

The UN is the head of the snake, and needs to be cut off.
