South Dakota shows us one way to handle foreign environmental extremists

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


North Dakota is a pretty big oil-producing state these days, due to the fracking of shale oil.

Now let me turn my eye to South Dakota. 

They love building pipelines in South Dakota — they’re like the opposite of us here in Canada. So they love being next to North Dakota. They’re not jealous like we are in Canada, where Quebec likes to take equalization payments but doesn’t like to take the actual oil.

The Standing Rock Indian reservation straddles the border of the two states. That’s where there were enormous protests during the Obama years trying to block a key pipeline called the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Thousands of protesters camped out for weeks, with Obama’s full support. He cancelled a pipeline that was a done deal, by allowing these violent protesters to stop it. It’s like Trudeau, really.

Remember when our friend Phelim McAleer actually went there? Total lawlessness, obviously funded by professional environmentalist groups. Most protesters weren’t from South Dakota or North Dakota, most weren’t Aboriginal. 

And then Trump won the election. In his first week in office, he signed an executive order clearing those hippies out of the way, proceeding with the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

So that pipeline got built immediately. It was operational by June of 2017, and has allowed North Dakota to become as big as an OPEC country.

But let me tell you something I learned about South Dakota today: Bill 189, proposed by their new Republican governor, named Kristi Noem. It reads in part:

"An Act to establish a fund to receive civil recoveries to offset costs incurred by riot boosting, to make a continuous appropriation therefor, and to declare an emergency.”

"Riot boosting"? What’s that mean?

... a person is liable for riot boosting (...) if the person:

Participates in any riot and directs, advises, encourages, or solicits any other person participating in the riot to acts of force or violence;

Does not personally participate in any riot but directs, advises, encourages, or solicits other persons participating in the riot to acts of force or violence; or

Upon the direction, advice, encouragement, or solicitation of any other person, uses force or violence, or makes any threat to use force or violence, if accompanied by immediate power of execution, by three or more persons, acting together and without authority of law.

This new law is remarkable. TONIGHT I'll take you through it.

We might not have the pipelines like South Dakota does. And that probably won’t happen until Trudeau’s gone.

But there’s no reason why self-respecting Canadian provinces can’t pass riot boosting laws just like my new hero Kristi Noem is doing in South Dakota.

Who knows. Maybe if we ask her nicely, she’d come up here and help us arrest David Suzuki and his band of dirty hippies, personally...?

NEXT: National Post columnist Barbara Kay joins me to talk about the latest outrage concerning male athletes competing as females in women's sports.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Andrew Stephenson do you support Linda Gibbons having her rights restricted? She was never violent or forced anyone to do anything.

Andrew there is lots of proof of so called protesters being violent and preventing free movement.

Riot boosting? Let’s see… Oh. yeah, how about the outsiders who came into North Dakota to protest the pipeline and burned a bridge and left multiple tons of garbage behind? Or how about the looneys in BC protesting the pipeline who damaged equipment.

An aside:
Given the documented troubles THEREBEL.media journalists have had with lefty bullies and other degenerate thugs and hypocrites, here’s an idea you might want to look into.
Combine a microphone with a stun gun.
Here’s a link to an inexpensive, handy little self defense tool:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjXtBn3yXpY
Get one of your tech guys to convert it to a REBEL mic…and you won’t have to worry about lefty thugs like Mr. Beaker Head (violent refugee hotel manager) or that feminist tough-guy Dion Bews, or lawsuits…if they try to assault you and/or damage your property – and the police are standing around protecting the lefty thugs – give ‘em a little zap with 10 million volts and they’ll be doin’ ‘the fish’ on the ground…while you carry on with your job of journalism. It will teach some respect for THEREBEL brand of journalism, if not THEREBEL mics…I’d keep the bezel.

Or does the state expect the right to stand around and be assaulted by the left while the police watch? Which they have been doing…and it’s documented!

“Arrest David Suzuki and his band of dirty hippies.”
LOL! I like the sound of that language.
But would you be arresting the Fruit Fly King for his huge ‘carbon footprint’, or for his hypocrisy about it?

And speaking of Riot Boosting, would those arrests include that drunken scofflaw tart, Lizzy May, and her fellow Watermelons?

Do those men – no, scratch that – do those biological males who ‘compete’ with women in sports have any self respect? I guess if you’re going to stand on those podiums and accept those awards…then you don’t! And you ain’t men!
The left and their irrationality and delusions are pure poison for our society…what’s left of it.

Are you sure that recession we’re headed into isn’t more like we’re headed into a period of hyperinflation! I had to pay $8.14 for a head of celery at the grocery store last week (BC interior)…and the Peek Freans Assorted Creams had no actual cookies in it, only packaging, sugar, air…and a hefty price tag!

I’ve been PERMANENTLY BANNED from the CBC for over a year now, most of my comments were censored, or rather CONTENT DISABLED, previous to that.
I once made a comment that was a quote from the Bible that was censored! From the New Testament!
I can’t wait for some payback…
commented 2019-03-06 13:14:23 -0500
Are there actually any recent scenarios where “riot boosting” would have made a difference? In absence of a riot there is nothing to “boost”.

Further, being violent at a protest is already illegal… maybe they could have charged Faith Goldy with this one after the car incident.

Before the Federal Election I wrote an article on Dave’s Insights titled: Canada’s Debt, A Liberal Legacy. In it I showed 40 years of history in 2015 dollars showing and charting the deficits and surplus history, National debt history, and Debt as a percentage of GDP. I also showed the history of who were our PM’s going back to 1957. Funny how history repeats itself. http://heinzegroup.com/insight.htm#13

Dose anybody remember the time when there used to be normal people in this world, there was Man and there was Woman both split by Homosexual and Lesbian, that was it, simple and normal. Then came the Marxist educational system with it’s quest for confusion, inventing words and phrases like Transgender and “People kind” and God knows how many other ‘kinds’. Educators had only one goal, the goal of confusion. The younger generations do no know what normality is and they are most certainly confused. Can you imagine a modern army going to war, young Soldiers on the march just hoping that their boots don’t ruin their nylons. The Marxist educational system are on the verge of winning, having turned out a whole new generation of screw’d up young ‘peoples kind’, all trained to vote for a fuxed up Trudeau-kind…….oh Canada? we stand on what you used to be.

1. Hopefully, Trudeau won’t go after Philpott to question her if she knows more than what Wilson-Raybould was allowed to disclose to anyone. It could backfire for her.
2. Wait till the trans men/women, whatever, start competing in figure skating! Then doubles, then dance.
3. Riot boosting for Canada? The liberals would deny there are any actual riots here, only disagreements of opinion.

- We went the Trudeau/Obama way & are headed into a recession. The US went with Trump & are booming. The North Dakota law would be handy in Canada (& a lot of other places). Take down the organizations & the useful idiots they use will disappear as well.

- None of these far left special interest groups care about the people they pretend to represent. They’re following the far left agenda. It’s about getting power & controlling everything.

WENDY LYNN said “Why not have a trans category?”
Good idea however all these trans people that are very proudly beating women and coming out on top will be competing with each other and most of them will not win or be on top.
The only reason they compete with women is because they know they can win.
It is cheating on the highest level.

One riot one ranger.

I quit coaching , my reason….SJW/feminism/#metoo…and besides…competition may bring out the best in scores…but it certainly doesn’t bring out the best in people.

The martial arts dojo depicted in the Kramer skit is called Truk Fustin Judo.

I will suggest the sport where you will get some serious “push back” and it is a favourite among really butch lesbians….ROLLERBALL….in fact I’m going to get a current update from some participants I’m aquainted….Knowing that this may conflict with native culture and their concern with buffalo herds….;-)
