We will be occupied loading the remainder of our goods into

What follows is probably my greatest concern, having with the
US of A a common face to the world. Were being led to believe
our "undefended border" will return to a considerable degree.

To use an American expression, sorry, "I'm from Missouri"
- but I reckon as how for you it don't make no never mind.

Well, that's about all for now. See you when we return - Joe

Stricter US rules prompt more scrutiny at Canadian border
http://www.thespec.com/news/canada/article/566553--stricter-u-s-rules-prompt-more-scrutiny-at-canadian-border

Concern about delays and red tape at the border have fuelled discussions on the planned continental security arrangement between Canada and the United States.

The proposed perimeter pact is designed to expand co-operation on security while allowing for the smoother flow of goods and people across the clogged border.

Beefing up security around the perimeter of North America won't make it easier to travel within the continent, said Emily Gilbert, director of the Canadian studies program at the University of Toronto.

"Having this external, hardened border is not actually going to take that much pressure off the internal one," she said Wednesday.

"There's been no discussion of a common passport like there is in Europe."

However, there has been little public dialogue about what the perimeter plan might involve, she added.

Re: Canada to play banker for Libyan rebel group? July 16
http://www.thestar.com/opinion/letters/article/1027954--and-they-call-moammar-daffy

Canada is considering loaning millions to the National Transitional Council in Benghazi, Libya. And Moammar Gadhafi is considered the "madman"?

What if the UN doesn't give the order to unlock the accounts? Oh right ­ the Canadian taxpayer would pick up the tab?

I read that the rebels got medical supplies from Canada. What did other innocent civilians get from Canada other than death and destruction from laser guided bombs under the name "humanitarian" aid? I cannot believe that thinking Canadians still believe these lies and high-sounding words.

The reality is that we are aiding and abetting the rebels in destroying innocent people and we are ourselves killing the civilians of Libya. There is so much angst over an injured horse at the Calgary Stampede but no one defends the people of Libya.

We have killed more people than Gadhafi ever has been accused of killing and yet we are the good guys? Look at how Canada treated the "rebels" at the G20 and yet we defend "rebels" in Libya.

There is no rational spin that can be put on our behaviour in Libya. Libyans got free healthcare and education under the Gadhafi government ­including drugs and treatment in other countries. They also got free education from kindergarten to the end of university ­ something unheard of in our "democracy."

The real reason we are there is so that the banks can seize Gadhafi's control of banks. If we had a brain in our heads we would realize that Gadhafi's methods of banking were much more in tune with his people than are our methods. But we can't have that occurring because then the rich wouldn't be getting richer.

Every Canadian should hang their head in shame for what our government is doing in Libya. We and our murderous government are the insane people.

I do not support Canada providing (1) loans (2) infantry support  to Libya's new government.

There has been far too much expenditure of Canadian taxpayer dollars and Canadian soldiering efforts and lives in support of other countries woes(as defined by oil and power mongers). It is time for a few years of severe spending restraint to get our own finances in an ultra-secure state, in aid of surviving the next melt-down which appears ever more likely as we watch USA and European countries flounder- while the same rich witches set out to rescue the world from the problems their own greed caused.

Please develop and discuss openly two plans. These plans should use Canadian government spending and tax or other incentive programs to promote strategic investment and industrial development programs at home which guarantee on-shore manufacturing capability.

Plan 1 should be a survival plan, which in the face of world-wide economic chaos,will ensure food production in Canada to feed Canadians; and will ensure on-shore production of at least survival supplies(munitions for protection of the country through our armed forces and police forces, and the provision of the necessary chemical and hardware supplies to sustain Canadian living.

Plan 2 will be an optimistic long term plan striving for international alliances which will guarantee Canada's economic well-being with potential for significant Canadian wealth generation and best-for-Canada utilization of Canadian resources.

Then I'll be proud of Canadian government and support it willingly!

Dear Prime Minister.

Please see the last comment on Daily Digest today.

Please protect Canada from a similar situation.

I quote from US "Veterans Today" article:--

I'll leave the last word on Israel's evil machinations to Sir Gerald Kaufman, the straight-talking Jewish MP. He said in a Commons debate in January 2008: "Is it not a fact that only international action can bring to an end the humanitarian disaster caused by collective punishment imposed by the gang of amoral thugs who comprise the Israeli Government and violate not only international law but the historic Jewish conscience?"

Subject: Re: Two Kites: Funding & Boots on Libyan ground

Hello Joe
My opinion is that, as the lawyer suggests, Sarkozy would like France to get control of the 3.5% of the world's oil reserves that Libya possesses.  Their high quality light sweet crude, which is a very profitable, is essential for the economies of e.g. Japan.  Total and BP would perhaps be cut into a share of ownership, after the takeover, with the privatization of Libya's national oil company.  This would be a step up from the service and exploration contracts they currently have, as they would then have the whole banana.  For the U. S., it's a chance to further fracture and pressure the muslim world, part of the Brzinski plan for the Project for a New American Century.
The claim by NATO that they are embarked on a humanitarian mission is therefore laughable, and Canada shouldn't be a part of any of it.
Thanks for getting out some of the views you have enclosed.

Tories mum on commie meeting report 
  Jessica Murphy ,Parliamentary Bureau First posted: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 5:29:30 EDT PM

OTTAWA - The Conservative Party of Canada isn't denying reports top party officials recently received a delegation from the Communist Party of China in Ottawa – but they aren't talking about it either.
Repeated calls to Conservative Party president John Walsh and party spokesman Fred DeLorey have gone unanswered since Monday.
The Tories have also clammed up over a congratulatory letter the party sent to the Communist Party on its 90th anniversary.
DeLorey said Monday the party would not comment on the letter.
Chinese media reported that Walsh sent a letter to the Communists Party on July 1 that read, in part, that the Tories "appreciate the Chinese Communist Party" and would "look forward to further relations between the two parties."...

Is NATO Arming the Libyan "Rebels"?
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article28630.htm
By Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey

July 20, 2011 " Pravda" -- -
Reports are coming in of a vessel carrying weapons, some fabricated in the United States of America, together with 500 mercenaries, sailing through the Suez Canal towards Libya. Certainly, western mercenaries have been captured. After a number of western lies have been uncovered, we see the truth coming out of Libya as we expose NATO's lies.

It is by now obvious that NATO is desperate. The more desperate its plight, the more questions are raised: How many children did they kill last night? Do the British, French and American populations sit back while their countries' armed forces bomb Libyan people daily because of oil and act in support of terrorists? How do the Americans feel about their President supporting terrorists who have connections to Al-Qaeda? Has David Cameron made yet another monumental misjudgement? Now we have reports of illegal arms being shipped through the Suez Canal. Where is the truth?

As those of us who have ourselves been involved in active military service, or have reported on military conflicts, know only too well, a flashpoint involving live ammunition is a source of a crescendo of information from both sides, the epitome of exaggeration and disinformation, either due to high adrenalin rushes, the desire for success or the need to demoralise the enemy.

In this column I am not going to get involved in spreading rumours I cannot back up because I have no way of confirming the information. What I can do is to continue to work diligently and with humility behind the scenes reporting the truth about Libya using my sources in the country, using the people I know personally living in Libya.

We have already established, and the international media in general has started to see for itself, finally, that there are at least two stories in this conflict, and more and more, the international media converges on the position defended from day one in this column (why it took the Left so long to get itself organised is beyond me). This position is that Muammar al-Qathafi is not hated by his people, he is not a dictator, Libya's Jamahiriya is their form of democracy and is far more representative than western Parliaments, Colonel Gaddafy has done a tremendous amount for Africa and for his people and NATO started this episode by arming and aiding and abetting the "rebels", namely Islamist terrorists, separatists, racists and opportunists mixed with the worst form of scum from the dregs of Libyan society.

Their military leader al-Hasidi himself boasted about having links to Al-Qaeda, their civilian leader Mahmoud Jibril was the one who twice voted for the death penalty for Bulgarian nurses working in Libya, a penalty overturned by Muammar Gaddafy.

Enter NATO on the back of false flag events staged by themselves and by their pet terrorists, massacres committed in the streets and blamed on the Libyan Government Forces, which denied the accusations from the outset and which invited the international community to see the truth for itself.

Now, as I said I am not going to engage myself in peddling any old rumour I glean from the Net, but let us examine some of NATO's lies and see where the truth does not reside. Firstly, it was the stories that the Libyan Air Force was bombing civilians. The Russian authorities claimed that their satellites disproved this as a lie. Lie number one. When SKY News was asked by Saif al-Islam al-Qathafi to take him to areas which they said had been bombed, he proved them wrong and the answer was an embarrassed admission he was right. Lie number two.

So much for the beginning of the conflict. Then there were stories of atrocities committed by the Libyan Armed Forces, which then turned out to be the opposite - time after time, areas liberated by the Army found civilians with open arms welcoming them from the scourge which had terrorised them, raped them, torched buildings, killed people in the streets and pillaged. This scourge is what NATO calls the rebels and what everyone else calls terrorists or "rats". Lie number three.

There followed allegations of rape because condoms had been found in the mountains along with Viagra pills. As I said at the time, you do not bother to wear a condom if you are going to commit a gang-rape and you do not trample a Viagra pill into the soil, you swallow it. International NGOs derided this rape story also as poppycock. Lie number four.

Then there were stories that the Libyan Armed Forces attack civilians at will. Quite the contrary, the ones massacring civilians and slitting their throats are the terrorists which NATO's Cameron, Obama and Sarkozy support (why are they siding with terrorists?), the ones dropping bombs on homes and slaughtering kids are NATO. Lie number five. The Libyan Armed Forces are careful to call to their adversaries to lay down arms and to give the civilians time to clear out of the area before they begin to sterilise it. Where is this in the international news?

And now, the claims in the international press - on July 18, that Brega has fallen. There is video evidence that it has not. There are reports on the ground that up to 500 terrorists were slaughtered as they tried to take it, there are reports that this massive defeat has sparked off pitched battles among Islamist clans in Benghazi itself. Such reports we cannot confirm because we are not on the ground but after the lies NATO and their terrorist friends have produced...? I have just received first-hand evidence from a Libyan officer on the front line saying the terrorists have been cleared way out of Brega to the East.

Finally, allegations that mercenaries from France, Britain and Qatar have been captured by the Libyan Armed Forces. These are boots on the ground which is illegal under UNSC Resolution 1970 (2011) and allegations that a vessel full of equipment and specialist troops is on its way through the Suez Canal to Libya. Again, these are as yet allegations but would anyone be surprised?

It is illegal to take sides in an internal conflict, it is illegal to aid and abet terrorists. Therefore, the evidence weighs heavily against Messrs. Cameron, Sarkozy and Obama, three sickening protagonists who along with their whores in the Middle East, goats who allowed themselves to be drawn into slaughtering fellow Arabs by foreigners, are violating international law.

NATO's exit strategy is to claim the no-fly zone (which was never necessary in the first place) has been implemented and to allow the African Union to mediate, allowing the Libyan people to decide what to do. Colonel Gaddafy himself proposed a democratic election which NATO refused. It is obvious, then, that this is not about democracy, now, is it?
