Numerous people have opined that, when your entire business model is based on rage and angering your audience, you can't just offer up the same level of rage day after day; no, rage is a drug and, after a while, you get used to it, so it's necessary to keep increasing the rage factor to keep the grift going. Simply put, in order to keep your audience, you need to continue cranking up the rage factor relentlessly; every article, every video, every email has to turn the screws a bit more. And when it comes to reporting on the same story month after month, well, every time you report, you need to embellish a bit more, you need to exaggerate a bit more, or you need to just invent new aspects of the story that weren't there before.
So here's Ezra, reporting on the ubiquitous "Pastor Artur," whose story grows in the telling every time Ezra tells it, and by way of cranking up that rage factor, here's Ezra's latest embellishment:
Good Lord ... prosecutors are demanding that Pastor Artur "renounce his faith?" Really?
Of course not. Don't be stupid.
Absolutely no one is insisting that Pastor Artur turn his back on Christianity, or whatever obscene, bastardized version of it he preaches, but we need more rage, so suddenly -- out of absolutely nowhere -- here's Ezra tossing out a rather significant claim that, oddly, he's never felt the need to mention before.
What's amusing is that this is not the first time Ezra has used precisely that wild fabrication, as your humble scribe documented in some detail well over a decade ago.
It is amusing, is it not, how Ezra can't even come up with original material. What is just as amusing is, if you read the comments on that recent article where Ezra makes that claim, not one commenter -- not a single one -- has the intellectual capacity to say, "Um, I don't remember that part. Are you sure about that?"
That's because they're all too busy being outraged. That's how it works.

Self-proclaimed "Outlaw Tory" will now demean and denigrate numerous dedicated professionals who graduated from medical school and are busy saving lives and, most importantly, probably did not get convicted of malicious defamation, declare personal bankruptcy, commit criminal identity fraud or possibly collude with others to commit bankruptcy fraud.
But, sure, it's the doctors and nurses who are the problem here.

"In the criminal justice system, there are stupid lawbreakers, really stupid lawbreakers, and then there's Lloydminster's village idiot Patrick 'Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen' Ross, who has -- even in the midst of being a university dropout, convicted malicious defamer and undischarged bankrupt living at home at the age of 40 -- managed to outdo himself."
"This is his story."
It appears that the Twatster (even as he currently owes me $112K+ pursuant to a judgment for malicious defamation, and whose family has quietly signed over Patrick's ownership of a substantial chunk of valuable Saskatchewan farmland he inherited from his grandfather to a close family relative in order to conceal his assets from the collection authorities ... but I digress ... back to my story) is very well on the hook for substantial restitution charges related to a business owner that now has to change his business contact information and cards and letterhead because Patrick thought it would be a total hoot to impersonate said business owner and spend several hours putting said business owner's name and professional contact info on dozens and dozens of spammers' mailing lists, to the point where this businessman has no choice but to reset all of his own business info at considerable expense to finally stop getting calls at all hours of the day and night.
The stupidity involved here is that Patrick did all this -- which would appear to constitute criminal acts of harassment and identity fraud -- from his own hotel room in Grande Prairie, so that all of that nefarious idiocy was trivially traceable back to him via recorded IP addresses, to the point where even Inspector Clouseau or David Menzies could have broken the case wide open, the end result being that said business owner is now preparing documentation to file a claim for financial restitution for aforementioned expenses, estimated to fall somewhere in the range of $9,000 to $17,000, which Patrick will most definitely have to pay without having bankruptcy as an option since he's already in bankruptcy and bankruptcy does not work recursively.
And there you have it.
PRODUCED BY DICK WOLF.
BONUS TRACK: Regular reader directs me to this, which certainly seems to describe the idea of surreptitiously transferring ownership of assets to conceal said assets from creditors:
I was going to suggest that no one could be that dumb and yet ... here we are.
IT GETS FUNNIER. Seriously, as hard to believe as it might be, it gets funnier. There is little question that Patrick Ross will have to pay restitution to cover the expenses of a business having to completely re-do all its contact information. And from what I am reading on the social media thread covering all this, if Patrick is not able to pay up, he will go to jail, at which point the government will cover the restitution, and reimburse itself by paying itself the $5.14 per day Patrick would normally have earned working it off behind bars. Do the math: Even if we estimate restitution costs at a conservative (pun intended) $10,000, it would take Patrick over five years to pay if off.
It's hard to believe that someone might go to jail for over five years over a debt of only several thousand dollars, and yet ... here we are.

George Floyd allegedly passes a bad $20 bill: "Dumb bastard had it coming to him, being a low-life criminal like that, why should we give a shit about him, world's better off without a crook like him, he deserved to be suffocated until he died."
Trump-supporter Ashli Babbitt is shot while violently smashing her way into the U.S. Capitol to murder politicians: "What a patriot!"
This would be deranged stalker, garbage human being and Rebel News "journalist" Drea Humphrey, mocking people who value their paycheque over any sense of morals, ethics or integrity:
No, seriously, she went there.

At 6:33 AM this morning, I wrote (among other things) this, about homophobic fascist and bigot "Pastor Artur" Pawlowski and Rebel News:
Well, just this minute, I received -- via Rebel's mailing list of which I am a member -- a plaintive screed from Ezra, professing indignation and outrage about Pastor Artur being possibly being sent back to jail for, you know, breaking the fucking law, in the midst of which is Ezra doing what Ezra does best:
"Please help us crowdfund the legal bills for Pastor Artur."
I totally called it.
One of my regular deep sources draws my attention to a subtle but interesting development related to new hires at Ezra's House of Dumbth -- all of the new faces at his "Journalists" page, many of who are not actually journalists. And while I normally don't recommend you visit any of the pages over there since you might get some Rebel on your new shoes, it's fascinating how the masthead has suddenly been stacked with videographers and video journalists and a "head of video," some of who have certainly been there for a while so it's puzzling why they would suddenly merit an appearance on the Journalists page.
Deep source suggests this is simply in aid of beefing up the apparent size of Rebel News for the sake of looking bigger than they really are, so don't be surprised by the imminent appearance of Carlos the Stock Boy or Gladys the Lunch Lady there. Whatever it takes to seem more accomplished and influential than you actually are when you're looking for cash.
In a blockbuster article:
Rebel News' David Menzies brings us the latest developments regarding Rebel's David Menzies. In an exclusive for Rebel's David Menzies, David Menzies told David Menzies about how David Menzies was treated savagely and brutally by CPC staff.
When asked how he was holding up, David Menzies assured David Menzies that he was doing fine.
Conservatives: "If you check out this video of David Menzies at the Melissa Lantsman rally, and you slow it down, and zoom in on the lower-left corner, then run it through a NewTek TriCaster 2 Elite while boosting the low-end spectrum and applying a phase-shifted Fourier transform to emphasize the delta-wave harmonics while reversing the polarity of the deflector dish, you can clearly see ..."
Also Conservatives: "Trump supporters? Looks like Antifa to me."
... what batshit crazy, racist, bigoted, goat-obsessed demographic are you going to appeal to?
Seriously, it's massively entertaining to watch the CPC finally clue in to what sort of mentally and psychologically diseased twonks they've been sucking up to all these years, as you can see the dangerously deluded Sue-Ann Levy going after Peter Kent regarding the recent David Menzies dust-up.
To no one's surprise, Sue-Ann plays the anti-Semitism card when someone simply tells her she's "gross." Ah, Sue-Ann, it's nice to see nothing's changed.

Man, I love me my commenters, since one of them just pointed me at the most delightful snippet of video. From earlier, CPC candidate Melissa Lantsman clearly accused Rebel News colostomy bag and man who wishes he was a real journalist David "The Menses" Menzies of, well, you can read it for yourself:
Luckily for us, the important content was recorded and posted by none other than the CPC's Peter Kent, and can be viewed and heard here, where Menzies is clearly heard asking, "Is Melissa here based on merit or sexual orientation?", which absolutely syncs up with Lantsman's description above.
In short, Lantsman was accurate, Menzies is a homophobe, and Ezra Levant doctors videos.
Tell me you're shocked.
P.S. Did I mention I love my commenters?
It's hard to believe but Rebel News' own released video of clownish buffoon David Menzies shows him clearly trespassing and assaulting others at a CPC rally. Follow along with the video here, where one can see at various times:
- 0:19: Menzies shoves the man in the red shirt (assault)
- 0:27: Menzies ducks under the yellow police tape to continue following the candidate (trespassing)
- 0:33: Menzies is shoving the woman in the blue shirt (assault)
- 0:38: Menzies shoves the man in the red shirt (assault)
- 0:43: Menzies pushes the man in the dark blue shirt from behind with his recorder (assault)
And, remember, this is the video Ezra thinks exonerates David.
AFTERSNARK: I've been moderately reliably informed that what you see of David Menzies in that video snippet is exactly his standard behaviour -- abusive and confrontational, and assaulting people for the sole purpose of being ejected or arrested as the pretext of running a fundraiser.
I do not find that difficult to believe.
OH, THIS COMMENT, which I will elevate:
David's original shtick, going back a decade or so, was hanging out in shopping malls "testing his new camera" by prowling around getting shots of Muslim women. When they'd get fed up and accost him, sometimes blocking his shot, he'd insist that the mall cops charge them with assault, and when the cops laughed him off, he'd write a furious article about the "Islamification of Canada", etc, etc, etc.
For a few years he seemed to limit his cheap provocation to people he could easily bully - hotel clerks, admin. staff, security guards, cashiers. Same technique. He would barge into a place he wasn't authorized to be, bully his target until they responded with exasperation, then revert to wide eyed "I'm just doing my job" sweet innocence. The video segments always had three things in common:
Hate, like any other addiction, requires stronger doses as the shock value wears off, and in the last two years of the Rebel's decline, Dave has been forced to up the ante, taking on cops, military personnel and more senior political figures, and making his physical aggression more and more blatant with every "story".
- they edited out all or most of his provocation
- they NEVER addressed the substance of the "story" he claimed to be covering, but simply focused on his "mistreatment";
- the intro was usually shot AFTER the story, carefully prepping the viewer with Dave's interpretation of events and providing pre-emptive explanations for elements of the "story" that didn't seem to fit Dave's narrative.

At 2:16 PM, I predicted that Rebel News' David "The Menses" Menzies would be released after his "arrest," despite a hysterical fundraiser having been established to fight for said release:
Hardly more than an hour later, there it is:
Grifters gonna grift. It was always thus.
Ezra: "David, we desperately need to run another fundraiser so get out there, make a complete ass of yourself and get arrested."
David: "On it, boss."
AND THERE IT IS ...
Tune in tomorrow when David is released without charges, but Rebel News is going to keep all that money, anyway.
A REMINDER: You might recall how Rebel News once before shrieked hysterically about David "The Menses" Menzies being "arrested," when that didn't actually happen. So let's all check back tomorrow to see how this ended.

Democrats: "We're forming a committee to investigate the horrific issue of sexual abuse on college campuses, and we invite the Republicans to nominate a slate of members for that committee."
Republicans: "We nominate Ohio congressman Jim Jordan."
Democrats: "Uh, no, we don't think so."
Republicans: "There go the Democrats, playing politics again."
Republicans: "Nancy Pelosi's rejection of two members of the GOP from the January 6 commission represents a disgusting, appalling, sickening, unprecedented abuse of power, and is a fundamental threat to fairness and democracy, and to the very fabric of the space-time continuum itself!!!!"
Also Republicans: "So ... 10,000 people storming the Capitol and killing a cop? Geez, get over it already."
40-year old university dropout and currently undischarged bankrupt who declared personal bankruptcy to escape the consequences of an $85,000 judgment against him for malicious defamation will now lecture others about the importance of consequences for bad behaviour:

Canadian conservatives: "Justine Turdeau is so incompetent; he can't even properly manage dealing with a massive, global, deadly pandemic perfectly; what a total loser. Talk about in over his head, amirite?"
Also Canadian conservatives: "Well, of course Stephen Harper's son Ben is qualified to be paid $118,000 per year as an 'advisor' to Jason Kenney. After all, he's taken some courses."

Here's Rebel News' in-house anti-vaxxer and woman who needs just two more Dalmatians for her winter coat Sheila Gunn Reid, railing against discrimination based on one's "medical history," and smarmily equating vaccination passports to, well, you know, that mild unpleasantness back in the 1940s involving trains and camps and ovens and that sort of thing:
Amusingly, here's Gunn Reid back in 2015, clearly insisting that there should be "societal implications" for people who refuse to be vaccinated because, you know, her beautiful children might be at risk so it's totally different when it relates to her worthless, squalling, psychologically-damaged brats:

There's an even deeper and more delicious irony at work.
Consider the JCCF's panicked claim that this was "a unilateral decision made by one person in the organization".
So within this advocacy group for more transparency, more accountability, and better adherence to the spirit of law, a guy, without consulting anyone at all, can conceive an unethical, distasteful and probably illegal plan to stalk and spy on judges and senior officials he may want to embarrass; can select a contractor, enter into a contract, sign cheques and authorize expenses for the project, without ANYONE'S knowledge or approval?
Apart from the sleaziness of the entire operation - what an extraordinarily lax and sloppy governance, administrative and finance management framework these guardians of our freedom operate under.
So, yeah, the week is starting out well.
Here's Rebel News Obergruppenfuhrer and Canadian charity tax specialist Ezra Levant, giving a shout-out to the CRA-approved charity "The Democracy Fund" that is currently laundering ^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H redirecting ^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H repurposing what would seem to be hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to his "Fight the Fines" campaign:
despite what would appear to be clear and unambiguous CRA regulations that you can't do that:
In any event, given the overwhelming mystery of "The Democracy Fund" (whose web page explains precisely nothing about them), we do now note a teeny tiny "Jobs" link at the bottom and, sure enough, it would appear that, despite listing absolutely no previous or ongoing projects of any kind in its history of existence, TDF is looking for a "Project Manager" whose duties would include:
I'm sorry, wait, what?
So the mysterious entity "The Democracy Fund" is going to be putting together "teachers' kits?" Really? And isn't it "The Right" that is constantly whining incessantly about how schools are being infiltrated by leftist, libtard propaganda, yet here we have a faceless, CRA-approved charity about to use that charity status to pump out conservative propaganda for the express purpose of getting that crap into schools? Ah, irony, where is thy sting?
One suspects that, if Ezra has any input into this, we should soon expect a first edition of "Ethical Tobacco: What Doctors Don't Tell You About the Benefits of Smoking", accompanied by a cheery, Doonesbury-like mascot named "Mr. Butts":
In any event, I think the proper course of action here is to apply for the job, for the sole purpose of figuring out what the hell is going on here, and just what those "teachers' kits" would contain. And you don't have anything better to do today, do you?
BONUS TRACK: It's fascinating that The Democracy Fund is suddenly in need of a "project manager" to do all these interesting things, given that nowhere does that group list, anywhere on its web page, any previous projects that it has ever run. In fact, whois.com shows that that domain name was registered only last year:
so it seems safe to conclude that TDF has done precisely nothing in terms of "projects" to merit its CRA charitable tax status, only to suddenly decide that it's time to start pumping out propaganda in the form of "teachers' kits" and handing out charitable tax receipts to anyone who wants to help out.
Where is Canada Revenue Agency when you actually want their involvement?
