I will say this again: right-wingers who insisted that Donald Trump get credit for "Operation Warp Speed" that got us COVID-19 vaccines in record time are very much the same people currently shrieking that the very speed with which those vaccines were developed means they are utterly untested and wholly unreliable.

Add to that last year's undisclosed settlement with CJPME, and it's not unreasonable to imagine that Ezra's/Rebel's total legal bill/costs in the last two years alone could be well upwards of a cool million given that, on top of this recent $60K in damages, Ezra how has to cover his own legal fees, and assuredly will be whacked with significant cost awards towards Chak's costs as well.
I'm sure none of this will be covered by Rebel News' relentless "Fight the Fines" campaign, as that would be tacky.

Regular readers will appreciate that we here at CC HQ have published a number of pieces explaining that Rebel News and its fundraising arm, The Democracy Fund, appear to be playing games with Canada Revenue Agency regulations regarding TDF's registered mandate of funding "strategic litigation," even while representing more than 2,000 cases of simple lockdown-related fines -- something which in no known universe falls under the mantle of "strategic." You can read one of those pieces here, then pop back 'cuz there's more.
Well, it would appear that the unprincipled and disingenuous hacks at both of those orgs have been paying attention to your humble scribe's actual journalism, as they are going out of their way to slap the label "strategic" on every fucking thing in sight.
Witness, if you will, the recent obsession over at Der Rebel with the word "strategic":
If I didn't know better, I would assume that everyone involved in that grift is now realizing what sort of awkwardness they might someday have to explain to the CRA, and are frantically describing as "strategic" everything from run-of-the-mill fine fighting to expensing a new "strategic" espresso maker for the home office.
"Strategic." It's your word of the day.
P.S. It's amusing that Der Rebel's Sheila Gunn Reid still has not come to intellectual grips with the meaning of "strategic" litigation, as she shrieks hysterically about ...
No, Sheila, dear, you do not have "two dozen strategic legal cases"; you have, most likely, a couple dozen identical cases, which is not the way "strategic litigation" works.
Look it up.
[Patrick's] been informed by text, email, and registered mail he has documents waiting for pickup.I have a feeling he's lost interest in this venture, or he's trying to feign ignorance. He won't be able to do that however because I personally texted him staying it was available for pickup, he thanked me, and then said not to contact him on his number. Right after saying that, he texts telling me to tell RoD to unveil who they are and negotiate a settlement. Why would anyone do that?

Recently, racist memorabilia authority Keean Bexte -- in his ongoing efforts to fundraise by demonizing medical professionals -- published the following jaw-dropping falsehood:
To Bexte's credit, he followed this up with a curious and annoyingly vague correction:
So what's a little odd about that correction? I'm glad you asked.
What's odd is that Bexte does not subsequently provide the correct age information for what is called "DTaP" (diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis) vaccination, so one has no way of knowing whether Bexte was just a bit wrong, or howlingly, massively, spectacularly wrong, and this is important given the point he was trying to make. Instead, it's just ("Hey, I fucked up, but look at my nobility in admitting it, so let's move on.")
Given how Bexte was clearly trying to paint Fauci as a total monster for suggesting vaccinations for infants, it behooves us to take about seven seconds to do an online search, whereupon we learn that Bexte was, in fact, howlingly, massively, spectacularly wrong:
Bexte was not simply incorrect; he was irresponsibly, dangerously incorrect, and a simple apology should not get him off the hook.
Anyone out there having just a bit of Rebel remorse?
Jesus Christ ... as we here at CC HQ have reported on previously, in order to fight a grand total of $3,000 in fines for clearly breaking the law, Rebel News is going to spend at least $100,000:
No, wait, that's at least $100,000 for each of three steps:
And here's Canada undisputed queen of the begging bowl, Sheila Gunn Reid, asking for another $50,000:
Give Gunn Reid credit ... all she needs is an empty chicken bucket and she's pretty much in her element:
BONUS TRACK: Perhaps the funniest total fiction constantly emanating from Gunn Reid and the talentless hacks at Der Rebel is that, while all this defense of freedomy libertitude costs money, they only do it because they love you all, and they're fighting for your rights:
This is, of course, total bullshit. In the above action, Ezra and the Ezrettes want hundreds of thousands of your dollars to defend an action that the average Canadian will never, ever, ever, ever, ever have to defend -- that of purchasing a billboard to send a political message.
While the average Albertan might have a number of gripes with rules and regulations, I do not see a tidal wave of yokels from Lethbridge and Red Deer complaining about the onerous restrictions related to renting a roadside billboard; this issue is exclusive to Ezra Levant, but it's always convenient to convince others that their rights are somehow tangled up in this nonsense.
When it comes to grift, a gullible and uneducated population is your greatest asset.

I don't think you could find a more perfect conflagration of festering pus than the disreputable bottom dwellers referenced in this tweet:
Seriously, a scumbag like Posobiec, retweeting the sleazy hacks at The Post Millennial, pimping a contrived award to (among others) pathological liar and long-time Rebel News favourite Andy Ngo. But in case you have a few minutes, let me introduce you to one Chad Loder, whose Twitter account you might want to check out:
But, remember ... Justin Trudeau once wore blackface in a high school play, so we're even, right?
P.S. If you have the time, spend a few minutes at Loder's Twitter account ... it's moderately horrifying.
It's hilarious that ex-Rebeler Jack Posobiec (among many others) is pimping out Mike Lindell's shitty products, but only because they're getting a cut if you purchase with their individual promotion code:
I look forward to the upcoming promo code "Sheila." Or perhaps "Menzoid."

After a lifetime of unethical, unprincipled, shameless pandering and sucking up to power for personal profit, two of conservatism's dimmest bulbs decide to take their millions and fuck off to an island somewhere.
