Why The Rebel site was down: Help us prepare for the next attack

Ezra LevantRebel Commander



The Rebel was knocked off the Internet this weekend.

And we couldn’t even e-mail you to explain what was going on.

WATCH as I explain what happened.

We’re finally back up. But we’re pretty shaken.

We have our own video player now — we don’t rely 100 per cent on YouTube.

We’ve also built an app, that’s in beta testing mode — that means it’s not the final product, but you can still download it and try it out, while we work out the bugs. It’s free.

But let’s be honest: Unless you are a billion-dollar company, they’ll always find a way to get you.

We survived yesterday’s one-day blackout. But it’s just a matter of time until another such attack comes along.

Can you please help us?

Help us improve the app — you can download the prototype version for free now, and help us work out the wrinkles.

But can you please help us financially too — by helping us to replace the ad money that YouTube has removed from us, helping us overcome the constant hacking attacks that leftists direct at our websites?

Other media have lined up for hand-outs from Justin Trudeau. We’ll never do that. Ever.

We’re 100 per cent supported by our viewers. Will you help us now?

Please consider going to StandWithTheRebel.com and chipping in $10, $25 or even $100 to keep us strong.

One day, when the real attack comes, I want to be ready.

Or else, one day, you’ll wake up and we’ll have been un-personed — just made to disappear, without a trace.

And you won’t even be able to find out why.

I stand with the Rebel.

So Bozo Rambo you don’t think the Rebel is under attack. Seems to me whenever I read your trash it is a constant stream of attacks against the Rebel or Levant or supporters. You say that you have a problem with Trudeau and many liberal issues but I have never seen you actually make a constructive criticism of Trudeau or his daily gaffes. You demand concessions but you do not reciprocate. For a person who hates the Rebel so much you sure do spend a lot of your time on this site. Yes Bozo you are a true hypocritical libtard and you deserve everything that is coming your way. You are just a poor little pathetic attention seeking troll. That is your legacy Bozo so why don’t you do the planet a favour and depopulate.

L R, obviously a concession would mean the absolute world to you….how weird! Given that you a mean little s**t much of the time, and, hypersensitive to anything Ezra uploads, I think you need to re-read what accompanies the video, in particular:

“The Rebel was knocked off the Internet this weekend.
And we couldn’t even e-mail you to explain what was going on.
WATCH as I explain what happened.”

Little man John, the parasite Rambo…..You see their small man, there is the monumental difference between you and actual men like myself. I am who I post as, not a parasitic, lying, hide under an assumed name, low life piece of pig shit coward that you are. If you knew anything about me and where I live, it would prove once again, you’re a lying piece of nothing. You telling myself and others what a great life you have and where you live as being better than mine is pure projection, or other wise known as bullshit, in which you are an expert at. So you have had your feelings hurt my me that you feel compelled to research me, is once again proof positive that you’re the epitome of an internet troll.
So FUCKTARD, I welcome a visit from you so that we can have a good discussion and it will be my pleasure to treat you like a key board, where i can then punch the information into you.
So be a real man, ( not possible ) and let us all know your actual identity. I won’t hold my breath you fucking coward, low life troll.
PS…..time for new pair of sweat pants loser.

Little Rambo, the headline refers to an attack back in August, the video report makes that clear.
A person who isn’t aware of the history could confuse things if this person doesn’t listen the report. What’s your excuse?!
commented 2018-04-09 19:18:05 -0400
Open your ears and listen to the report….what’s wrong with you?
commented 2018-04-09 19:16:33 -0400
Don’t worry Peter, Little Rambo will direct you to Alexa and argue with you. This is one of his favourite things, others have pointed out the problems with using it, however, he sticks with it.
commented 2018-04-09 19:14:48 -0400
John, I am not going to get into an argument with you as you so desperately want me to do. Have a wonderful evening being a jerk … as I am sure you always do.
commented 2018-04-09 19:09:13 -0400
Little Rambo, you didn’t listen to the report again. Ezra didn’t claim the problems this past weekend were due to an attack (that was last August). Rebel was offline due to problems with the host server Nation Builder.

The article title at that link says,
“Internet Trolls Are Narcissists, Psychopaths, and Sadists
Trolls will lie, exaggerate, and offend to get a response.”

When Jennifer Golbeck wrote that article she must have had John Rambo/Jimmy Reece in mind because that title describes him perfectly.
commented 2018-04-09 19:03:22 -0400
John Rambo said, “considering how much The Rebel audience has shrunken since last year”

You do not have the ability to determine if the The Rebel’s viewership has gone down. You do not have the data necessary to make that assessment.

As usual, John, you are a liar.
commented 2018-04-09 18:56:37 -0400
Little man John, the parasitic fucktard, Rambo….What’s most hilarious is your obsession to being a constant poster to this site, that you pretend to hate so much. Without this site, your life would be less than it already is, which is a menial existence at best. What a pathetic life it must be for a troll like yourself, dressing up in sweat pants and slip on loafers to collect your monthly handout.
Do this world a favor and donate all your organs today, if they’re any good that is! It will hopefully make few suffering humans lives better.
Here is a reminder of who you really are and you know deep down inside, this is an apt description of your pathetic existence:

I thought the internet service provider was down for maintenance work.

just cancelled you tube on favorite list and came back 3 hours later to see if the commie’putin scum’ have not shut you down again. the more they try the we know we are right. will common sense, freedom in this country win. who knows. i do not like our chances.

Deleting a site’s address on DNS renders the site unreachable. Someone is responsible. If there was financial loss, then a lawsuit would be a good idea. So, this was either the global DNS system dropping a record that shouldn’t have been dropped, or the Nationbuilder site deleted forwarding to The Rebel web site. I am betting on the latter. It’s unacceptable.

When something as benign as Diamond and Silk are silenced by Facebook because they are deemed a threat to society, it is really time to destroy Facebook.Who really needs Facebook?
commented 2018-04-09 16:34:08 -0400
Facebook and Google need to be shut down until they stop blocking half the peoples point of view. Trump might just break them up like Standard Oil once was.

I deleted my Facebook and refuse to use anything Google. Nor do I ever watch any of the un-liberal crapaganda “news” media. True-uhh-uhh-DOH!!!… Can go pound his socks up Butts.. Or whatever it is a Toxic Feminist does these days.

Ezra did the right thing, asking for donations to bolster therebel.media. This incident shows how vulnerable conservative communications are in Canada. And with Son-of-Fidel and Butts at the helm of this country, The Rebel would seem to be living on borrowed time. We know they will stop at nothing to silence conservatives.

The Rebel needs to built a relationship with a conservative communication facility (Breitbart would seem to be a good fit) that is outside of Spudnik’s jurisdiction so he cannot take it down at his whim, and conservatives in Canada have a go-to location to keep communicating in case Little Spud does the worst to The Rebel.

in canada the leftists have a giant media behind them. global, cbc, ctv, papers and yet they are so scared of one outlet for the common sense media and try to shut it down. pathetic when freedom of expression gets crushed in this country. am sure they will always say they live in a free country though. not anymore, thanks to them.

Ron Voss – maybe they could setup a robocall service.
commented 2018-04-09 15:24:29 -0400
What is Zipe? I don’t get anything when I google it.

I will contribute regardless, but will this app guarantee Rebel contact and coverage in the event of an attack ?

I would certainly hope a company like this wouldn’t jeopardise their client base.
It seems they market in a bit of a Social justice warrior arena, rather exclusively.
commented 2018-04-09 14:57:34 -0400
I tried the App but it didn’t work because as you say it is currently tied to Nationbuilder.
Deborah if you are looking for a backup plan apart from email that doesn’t involve the Internet then you are in to snail mail and telephone.
commented 2018-04-09 14:43:58 -0400
The page on your website for information about how to advertise with The Rebel is blank.

It might be a good idea to put a media kit there with information about the cost of various ways of advertising with The Rebel as well as some way for advertisers to be able to load up their ads and pay online for those ads after agreeing to an advertising sales contract.

A little – or a lot – of advertising revenue would undoubtedly help The Rebel stay afloat and grow.
commented 2018-04-09 14:25:21 -0400
I stand with The Rebel.
commented 2018-04-09 14:18:02 -0400
I was able to download The Rebel Media app for my iPhone, but could not find an app for my Mac computer.
commented 2018-04-09 14:10:18 -0400
Ezra, you have to come up with a way of reaching people publicly when they attack. When I kept seeing that nation builder screen, I knew it was another assault on the Rebel. And how ironic that they call themselves the nation builder, it’s more like the nation destroyer. I kept checking my email to see what was going on. Please work on a back up plan that doesn’t involve the internet because taxpayer money is being used to silence people, and you know that’s a money tree for the communists, because they will just keep raising taxes, whereas the Rebel is not in that position.

Don’t forget that Obama handed control of the internet to the UN.
commented 2018-04-09 13:59:53 -0400
Evelyn, just go the Google store and search for The Rebel App or Apple Store.

The Rebel must hold on until help arrives to stop this madness. #SaveOntario #SaveAlberta #SaveCanad a conservative government will support free speech.

I think it’s high time to create conservative social media sites. The demand is there and censorship on the commie networks is becoming unbearable.
