Just when you think Ezra Levant and his merry band of professional grifters at Rebel News could not possibly sink any lower, they still manage to surprise. Here's predictably talentless hack Alexandra Lavoie, shamelessly milking someone else's misfortune for Rebel self-promotion:
The sleazy self-promotion involved here is a Rebel News petition to "SAVE JOANIE!!!", which Rebel will (if history is any guide) monetize by using all the names collected for subsequent sales pitches, and promotions, and rental to interested parties. What else is new? But here's the twist.
The affiliated Rebel YouTube video has attracted numerous commenters, who are yanking their little puds in outrage over this apparent medical malpractice, shrieking idiocies like "Those doctors should be fired!", or "Their medical licenses should be revoked!", or "They're breaking their oaths!!!" and other ignorant imbecility, apparently unaware that it has always been thus -- when medical services are in short supply (as they are now), it is the responsibility of the medical profession to prioritize delivery, and it's not at all surprising that someone too fucking stupid or irresponsible to look after her own health is going to end up down the list as compared to someone who does not want to be a virus-spewing plague rat, infecting everyone around her in a hospital full of other vulnerable people. But here's the best part.
It behooves us to ask, why is it that beds for non-COVID-19 patients like those waiting for lung transplants are in such short supply that they have to be rationed? Who is forcing health care providers into having to make these life-altering choices?
Ezra Levant and Rebel News. That's who.
There is a certain irony in having watched Ezra and his bottom-dwelling Morlocks at Der Rebel, for all these months, encouraging the public to refuse masks, and reject vaccines, and gather in large groups to the point where the health care systems in numerous provinces were utterly overwhelmed and doctors had to decide who got surgery and who didn't, only to now sob inconsolably over the plight of the very people who are, quite simply, suffering the unfortunate consequences of taking Rebel's really, really, really bad advice. And for Ezra and Rebel to now monetize these peoples' misfortune is truly the icing on the grift-based cake.
Ah, well, it is as a wise man once opined:
Well said, Ezra. Well said.

Rebel News' Ezra Levant, regarding Dr. Jill Biden and her doctorate in education:
Rebel News' Ezra Levant, regarding right-wing dingbat and Rebel News favourite Dr. Leslyn Lewis, with her doctorate in international law:
See how that works?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Awesome ... first commenter points out that while taking a steaming dump on Dr. Jill Biden's doctorate, Ezra Levant happily uses the same title to dignify one of the intellectual cripples at his next Ezrafest, "Dr. Julie Ponesse":
and does the same for blithering crackpot Charles McVety:
Well spotted, commenter. Well spotted.
Ezra Levant's Rebel News encourages Hamilton's "Nique" restaurant to flout COVID-19 lockdown regulations, publicizes the flouting and fundraises off of it. Result: Nique is closed down and is now for sale, while Rebel keeps all the money.
Ezra Levant's Rebel News encourages Calgary's "Without Papers Pizza" restaurant to flout COVID-19 lockdown regulations, publicizes the flouting and fundraises off of it: Result: Without Papers Pizza is closed down, while Rebel keeps all the money.
Ezra Levant's Rebel News encourages Calgary's "Outlaws Taphouse and Bar" restaurant to flout COVID-19 lockdown regulations, publicizes the flouting and fundraises off of it: Result: Outlaws Taphouse and Bar is closed down, while Rebel keeps all the money.
Johnny, who's our next idiot ^H^H^H^H^H contestant?

So, if I read the timeline correctly:
- Rebel News encourages Without Papers Pizza (WPP) to break the law so Rebel can fundraise
- WPP breaks the law and gets fined
- Rebel News celebrates convincing WPP to break the law and get fined, and fundraises $3.62 million to "Fight the Fines"
- WPP, after stupidly being convinced to break the law, goes under
- Rebel News pays none of the fines
- Rebel News keeps all the money
Does that sound about right?
It is the year 15,846,226,092 AD. The Sun is a dead, burnt-out cinder, floating uselessly in space. What little remains of humanity has burrowed deep into the Earth for whatever residual heat they can get from the dying core of the planet. And somewhere, in a grotto miles underground, a resolute group of humans sits around a struggling fire in total silence, until one of them raises his head slowly, stares balefully at the others, and mutters, "Sure, it's taking a while, but Merrick Garland is going after Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress. Just you watch."
Learned well from his former master at Rebel News, he has, in terms of flat-out, straight-up lying about shit. Here's Keean "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" Bexte, claiming BIILLLLYYYUNS ...
I'm glad we had this little chat.
REGARDING LEARNING FROM HIS YODA, white nationalist and fake journalist Keean Bexte is quietly doing exactly what he learned from his stint over at Rebel News. While putting on airs of being a media outlet, over at "The Counter Signal", it's all about the clicks and pure monetization, almost certainly for the purpose of creating a rentable mailing list.
If you examine any article at that site, each one typically has numerous hyperlinks, ostensibly to substantiate claims being made in the article. But if you look closer, every one of those links is nothing more than a link back to that site which is collecting tracking information about you. Every link. Without exception.
As one example, in the article screen-shotted above, you would think that that link named "Allan Report" would take you to a copy of, you know, the actual report, stored perhaps at Google Docs or reported at CBC News. Here's the underlying hyperlink:
Bexte's alleged media outlet has nothing to do with news, and everything to do with collecting your personal information in order to sell it down the line.
But you knew that, right?

I'm sure you're getting tired of reading of the ongoing Perils of Patrick, but I would be most remiss in not laying out the numbers in play related to the imminent collection proceedings against Lloydminster's Patrick "Quintuple Threat Dragon Fire Thunderbolt Kid Cash Nexus of Assholery MMA Cosplay Street Fighter" Ross.
From Form G of the enforcement instructions to be delivered/filed with the Saskatchewan sheriffs (ideally later today):
Also note the brand new post judgment interest rate of 5%, up from the earlier 2%, which means the amount Patrick owes me is now increasing by $5,204.50 every year.
I have already advised my legal representation that all of the docs look good, and can be filed at her earliest convenience.
In case you were interested.
P.S. It may be of some minor interest as to what we are asking for:
So, yes, if Patrick is suddenly a lot quieter in a month or three, well, he's probably a bit busy.
P.P.S. It is not clear what the total bill for all of this will be related to Sheriff's fees for collection enforcement, but there is an initial required deposit of $750, which will be charged to me but will also be added to Patrick's tab.
There are also various hourly rates charged by the Sheriffs for things like producing reports, undertaking investigations, transportation costs, actual seizing of property and so forth; again, charged to me but simultaneously added to Patrick's bill as well. In other words, in the end, Patrick will end up paying for the entirety of the enforcement proceedings against him.
P.P.P.S. Oh, one more thing. It's worth appreciating that, once the collection process starts, I will have eyes on whatever bank accounts Patrick has, so if he has a job that involves direct deposit of his paycheque, well, I'll be taking that. More to the point, it means that any transfers of funds to Patrick's bank account will be mine to seize. And why is this important? I'm glad you asked.
There's little doubt that Patrick has been subsidized by members of his family, probably via electronic transfer of funds. But now that I'll be waiting for any such transfers, really, their only option to help him out will be handing over cash under the table. And while they might be willing to go along with that for a while, there's no way you can do that month after month or year after year without eventually slipping up.
To pull that off will require constant work on the part of Patrick's family, and one wonders at what point those family members will have had enough of the inconvenience and deception and possible risk to their own financial reporting, and tell Patrick he's on his own.
I guess we're going to find out.
P.P.P.P.S. Man, this never ends, does it? At this point, yes, I would like to know where Patrick is working these days, if anyone knows. It's common knowledge that it is in the vicinity of Grande Prairie, AB, but I know nothing more than that. Having that information means I can tell the Saskatchewan Sheriffs' collection task force where to send the garnishment order.
If I can't supply that information, the Sheriffs predictably have ways of figuring it out, but that is billable time on their part, and whatever it costs will (as above) be added to Patrick's bill.
EVEN MORE: Even though we haven't delivered the collection order to the Sheriffs for enforcement yet, the judgment has in fact been registered with the Saskatchewan Judgment Registry. What this means is that anyone who wishes can pay a small fee, then search the registry by name, at which point they will be informed of my substantial judgment against Patrick. I'm not sure what this means in terms of the consequences of someone running a credit check on Patrick or anything of the sort, but it does mean that the fact I have a judgment against him is now publicly available information for anyone willing to hand over ten bucks to do the search.
IF PATRICK REFUSES TO CO-OPERATE: Knowing Patrick, he will of course be as unco-operative as possible, which will lead into the various possibilities of compelling his co-operation, which are (as I understand it):
- Serve Patrick with a Voluntary Questionnaire from the Sheriff
- If Patrick refuses to fill that out, follow that up with a Mandatory Questionnaire, also from the Sheriff
- If Patrick still refuses to co-operate, the Sheriff can issue a Notice for an Appointment for Examination so we can examine Patrick under oath.
Again, all of the above will be done at Patrick's expense.

Regarding Lloydminster's Patrick "Alpha Dog Nexus of Assholery Quintuple Threat" Ross, I have received, just today, all the docs to proofread and return pursuant to filing with Saskatchewan sheriffs to commence collection proceedings against Patrick. They all look good, so I assume they will be filed officially tomorrow. At that point, shit will happen.
The book "Inferno,"by SF authors Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, relates the story of SF author Allen Carpentier, who dies a stupid death and ends up wandering the circles of Hell with his guide "Benito." During their travels, the two meet numerous people also in Hell for one reason or another and, without exception, after some conversation, it becomes obvious what the sin was that banished each of those people to the underworld. In short, in every case, each of those people deserved their unpleasant fate.
However, at one point, the two run across one unfortunate soul who seems to have been given a raw deal by God ("Big Juju"):
But outside the power plant was an athletic man chained to a wheelless bicycle set in concrete in front of the exhaust pipe of the generator. Black smoke poured around him, almost hiding him from view.
As we watched he began pedaling furiously. The hum of the gears rose to a high pitch—and the generator inside died. There was a moment of quiet. The man pedaled with sure strokes, faster and faster, his feet nearly visible, his head tucked down as if against a wind. We gathered around, each wondering how long he could keep it up.
He began to tire. The blur of his feet slowed. The motors inside coughed, and black smoke poured out. He choked and turned his head away, and saw us.
“Don’t answer if you’d rather not,” I said, “but what whim of fate put you here?”
“I don’t know!” he howled. “I was president of the largest, most effective environmental-protection organization in the country! I fought this!” He braced himself and pedaled again. The hum rose, and the generator died.
Billy was completely lost. He looked to Benito, but our guide only shrugged. Benito accepted everything. I knew better. This couldn’t be justice, not even Big Juju’s exaggerated justice. This was monstrous.
Corbett had to be guessing when he suddenly asked, “You opposed the thermonuclear power plants?”
The guy stopped dead, staring as if Corbett were a ghost. The dynamo lurched into action and surrounded him with thick blue smoke.
“That’s it, isn’t it?” Corbett said gently. “You stopped the nuclear generators. I was just a kid during the power blackouts. We had to go to school in the dark because the whole country went on daylight saving time to save power.”
“But they weren’t safe!” He coughed. “They weren’t safe!”
“How did you know that?” Benito asked.
“We had scientists in our organization. They proved it.”
We turned away. Now I knew. I could quit looking for justice in Hell. There was only macabre humor. Why should that man be in the inner circles of Hell? At worst he belonged far above, with the bridge-destroyers of the second ledge. Or in Heaven. He hadn’t created this bleak landscape.
I couldn’t stand it. I went back. Benito shrugged and motioned to the others.
Within the cloud of blue smoke his face was slack with exhaustion. “It wasn’t just the problem of where to bury the waste products,” he told me. “There was radioactive gas going into the air.” He spoke as if continuing a conversation. I must have been his only audience in years, or decades.
“You got a rotten deal,” I said. “I wish I could do something.”
He smiled bravely. “What else is new?” And he started to pedal.
I glared at the nothing sky, hating Big Juju. Carpentier declares war. When I looked down, Benito was fumbling through saddlebags attached to the stationary bicycle.The man cried, “What are you doing?”Benito took out papers. The man snatched at them, but Benito backed away. He read, “Dear Jon, I could understand your opposition to us last year. There was some doubt about the process, and you expressed fears all of us felt. But now you know better. I have no witnesses, but you told me you understood Dr. Pittman’s demonstration. In God’s name, Jon, why do you continue? I ask you as your sister, as a fellow scientist, as a human being: Why?”He began pedaling again, ignoring us.“You knew?” I demanded. He pedaled faster, his head bent. I leaned down and put my face close to his. “You knew?” I screamed.“Fuck off.”Big Juju wins again. Too much, but appropriate. As we walked away, Jon screamed after us, “I’d have been nothing if I gave up the movement! Nothing! Don’t you understand? I had to stay as president!”
Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who was born into wealth, did not even finish high school, abandoned French classes after three months, takes seven months of vacation every year and spends an average of 47 minutes per week at his job, will now lecture immigrants on the importance of a solid work ethic.

Oh, dear ... a little birdie tells me that Lloydminster's Patrick "Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen" Ross has spent several hours bad-mouthing me on Twitter, particularly related to my ongoing legal slapfest with professional fundraiser Ezra Levant. Patrick has much to say on the subject (all of it wrong), but perhaps this tweet most aptly characterizes Patrick's mendaciousness:
This is not the first time Patrick has lied about what this is all about. I could go into detail here but those who are unfamiliar with what happened are welcome to read, in detail, about a single aspect related to Ezra's 2016 lawsuit against me. Here, help yourself:
As you can see at those 2019 blog posts, I did not -- as Patrick so dishonestly bloviates -- simply try to criminalize someone who was selflessly trying to help forest fire victims. No, I was pointing out how Ezra was misleading and deceiving donors; a claim that, as you can see, I proved with numbers, and which was confirmed by the Red Cross' Susan Larkin. But here's the truly sad thing about Patrick's dishonesty:
He knows all this.
I've written about this legal action at length over the past few years, in precisely that kind of detail, and I know Patrick has read it. Patrick knows he is misrepresenting what happened, but he just doesn't care. Patrick knows that my criticisms of Ezra Levant's 2016 fundraiser are based purely on the deception and misrepresentation contained therein, but he just doesn't give a shit, and continues to lie about it. And here's the real irony:
It's lying about me that got Patrick where he is today -- an undischarged bankrupt without a trustee that now owes me around $120,000, is about to have the collection enforcement arm of the Saskatchewan sheriffs descend on him like a million-pound shithammer, and is potentially facing criminal charges for filing a knowingly fraudulent Statement of Claim against someone else.
And yet ... and yet ... Patrick simply cannot stop lying. He can't. And he wonders how his life has turned into such utter shit.
The answer is not hard to see.
BONUS TRACK: At the appropriate time, I am going to start blogging about the upcoming trial (still a ways off), but regarding the matching issue mentioned above, there is one point I want to emphasize, and that is that Ezra's lawyer lied to me -- flat-out fucking lied to me -- when, during questioning in late 2016, this happened:
That would be Ezra's lawyer, assuring me that his client had indeed "matched" all donations when he absolutely knew that that was not true. He knew it wasn't true.
I'm not going to identify Ezra's lawyer but, trust me, the fact that he flat-out fucking lied to me during questioning is not going away, and I am going to make goddamned sure it comes back to bite him in the ass.
That's a promise.
BY THE WAY, it's amusing that Patrick continues, to this day, to claim that I suggested that Ezra Levant was, in any way, breaking the law, given that, at the very beginning of the aforementioned fundraiser back in 2016, I published quite openly that I was unaware of any lawbreaking:
It should come as no surprise, then, that Patrick's inaccurate tweet above is pretty clearly defamatory, but there's probably little point in suing him again.
As anyone who’s ever dealt with Patrick Ross knows full well, he is the most dishonest debater imaginable. Patrick’s shtick is to argue in bad faith. By that, I mean that Patrick is never, ever, ever interested in an actual, honest exchange of ideas. Rather, Patrick’s M.O. is to hideously distort whatever you say or write, then attack the distortion. Patrick Ross has never been interested in discussion. Patrick Ross has only ever been interested in winning, and a couple examples will demonstrate that quite nicely.
Consider, if you will, the case of Andrew Meyer. As you can read, Meyer was the dumbass who was Tasered at the U of Florida for being an obnoxious, belligerent troublemaker [at a John Kerry talk] who physically scuffled with security until they’d had enough and Tased his sorry ass. Given his behaviour, I and many others opined that, frankly, anyone that much of an idiot deserved to get a good Tasering, and I for one had no sympathy.Patrick Ross’ rebuttal was as rapid as it was idiotic — “CC thinks people who disagree with John Kerry should be Tasered!!”See what Patrick Ross did there? Totally stripped the context, and dumped on me for something not even remotely close to reality or what I’d written. And lest you think that was an isolated incident, let us continue.There was also the case of anti-choice crusader Ed Snell. But Ed Snell was no ordinary shrieky fetus fetishist, oh no. As you can read here, Snell was a delightfully ambitious dingbat, who went to the trouble of building a car-top platform, from where he could continue to howl Scripturally at women even after they’d entered the grounds of an abortion clinic. Once again, a number of people (including myself) really couldn’t muster up any pity for Snell once someone lost it and booted Snell’s ass off the top of his car.You know what’s coming, don’t you? Yes, you do: “CC encourages violent physical assault of senior citizens!!!!!”See how Patrick works? To a miniscule grain of reality, Patrick Ross wraps multiple layers of exaggeration, distortion, misrepresentation and utter bullshit. This is what he does. This is how he argues. Invariably. Anyone who has dealt with him for any amount of time knows precisely of what I speak.

Rebel News is outraged -- OUTRAGED, I TELL YOU!!!! -- by "cancel culture":
On the other hand ...
SURE, LET'S TALK ABOUT "STOCHASTIC TERRORISM": There is something decidedly creepy and unnerving about the current demonization of Justice Adam Germain by the various hacks at Rebel News. Of course, no one at Der Rebel is going to come right out and encourage violence against the judge, but that's not necessary -- it is sufficient to dabble in a little "stochastic terrorism," then sit back and see where that goes:
I have several such examples; maybe I'll post them if there's interest.
AND SO IT BEGINS:
If something unfortunate happens to Justice Germain, remember, I tried to warn you.
