You know Joe, I am an old time Sir John A. Macdonald Conservative, but I went to the Jack Layton Candlelight Memorial service at the Legislature. Still don't like any NDP policy at all, but I respect his spirit greatly, just as I respected the man. As a native son of Quebec, Jack Layton will always be "le Jacques des coeurs."

Dear Joe,
 
World Peace Force as you have described makes sense, there would have to be in place also the criteria to help the conflict be resolved. It would be settled by the parties themselves but in some cases a small minority with lots of weapons and cash may try and take over the majority of peaceful citizens, in this case based on the freedom of the people, the World Peace Force would have to decide what was right based on a set of agreed upon freedoms and rights. This is a very complicated situation when some of the largest countries in the World are not becoming involved so that they are not questioned about their own human rights. A World Freedom and Rights Charter must be agreed upon and the commitment to enforce these Freedoms and Rights signed by all members of the UN both within their boundaries and the World. Any member that does not agree will no longer be a member of the UN until such time as they do.   No action would take place unless violations of The World Charter of Freedoms and Rights occur and the Government in place is to weak to control the situation themselves and requests help, or is the instigator.   Only with authority through clarity, will such a force succeed. A decision on Sovereignty is at issue here clarity on The Sovereignty of the Individual, the State and the World and what responsibilities come with each must be incorporated within this Charter each must have control over itself unless its actions effect others negatively, which is why we have courts. It is time that the World has real power over the areas that effect all humans, the Environment and Human Rights. If a country does not meet enviromental or human right standards an embargo is placed on them until they do.

Subject: Libya on the DD

Joe--A phenomenal video with Phyllis Bennis.  It was mentioned that there were world wide protests against attacking Iraq.  Can you imagine what would happen today if we protested against moves by our government?  Remember the G20? 
A 'World Peace Force' would be a world police force to force us all to obey ZATO(zionist controlled NATO/UN).  Look what the Security Bill and Homeland Security has done to the freedom of average, innocent citizens in Canada and the US.  We are all considered to be terrorists by our government if we do not obey their directives. 
You are absolutely correct--Canada kissed the feet of the US to gain brownie points--and the Libyan people are paying with their lives.  Do you think we would be treated any differently if we disobeyed? 
We know from the honest reporting(not our msm) that this rebel violence was created, trained and armed by the West.  And is still being assisted by the West--the West seized Libyan assets in our countries and used it to support and arm the rebels.  What gives ZATO/UN criminals any right to decide which side should be supported by us?
If the truth is known we have caused much of the disasters around the world.  Africa has been raped and pillaged for hundreds of years and their wealth stolen.  Gadhafi had the water that would have helped the people of Somalia much faster than we could or did but we bombed the water infrastructure and the material needed to repair the damage.  Yes, that shows our concern for the everyday struggles of the people.  Our governments don't give a damn about us, why would anyone believe they care about people in other countries.  They only care about the profit and power that they can steal through any means.
We know that there will be a foreign occupation post Gadhafi--and we know they will be installed dictators,just like the Shah, Karzai etc. were installed.  I get so angry when I hear about 'installing democracy'.  The very term democracy means it cannot be installed, it must be wanted by the majority of the people.  Of course our government wouldn't know that because we are not a democracy.
Until Canada is the perfect country we have no right to direct how others should govern or live.  Our arrogance will be our downfall.  I fear we will have another false flag like 9/11, blame it on Libyans and create a WWIII.  That is why I name them ZATO--they are creating the situation to destroy us all.  The zionist banksters/controllers never change their game plan and this go-round is just preparing for WWIII. 

The article I posted about the US concentration camps finally got through.  Hope people pay attention.  I remember Ted Byfield warning that this is also happening in Canada.

Subject: Bankrupt U.S. should look why booming China raising taxes

The Editor
The Globe and Mail
 
Copy to: Mr. Neil Reynolds, columnist for the Globe and Mail: If cutting taxes will automatically lead to growth, why then George W. Bush's massive $1.67 trillion tax cut only led to bankruptcy and economic collapse? If you want to look at cities, look at booming Shanghai and not at cities of bankrupt America.
 
Bankrupt U.S. should look why booming China raising taxes
 
Re "How cities can make their fortunes," by Neil Reynolds (Aug. 22).
 
Recently, I returned from a month-long visit to Shanghai, Beijing and other cities of China. With its Maglev (magnetically levitated) trains running at a breakneck speed of 430 kilometres per hour, Shanghai looks like a city of the future. China's highways and expressways are filled with late-model cars and China has already overtaken America as the world's biggest market for cars. While the United States slowly recovers from the recession, China is growing at an amazing rate of 9.5 per cent. As Financial Times columnist Martin Wolf noted: "The West's reputation for financial and economic competence is in tatters, while that of China has soared."
 
I also witnessed China's industrial might while visiting Shanghai's container port -- the world's largest. As far as the eye can see, ships of all sizes were loading and unloading (mostly loading) containers. It was an intimidating demonstration of China's industrial clout. China has also surpassed the United States as the world's greatest trading nation. In fact, China is now bankrolling America's trillion dollar budget deficit.
 
China is also on the way to bypassing the United States as the centre for research and development. While a bankrupt America is finding it difficult to provide the financial resources needed for research, China is targeting a number of critical areas of science where it intends to be among the world's leaders. Dr. Jing Naihe, director of Shanghai's Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, said that "our top stem cell labs are among the world's best" and in " ten years we should be at the top." While America's space program, facing a financial crunch, is winding down, China is expanding its space program. China has already sent astronauts to the space and is now gearing up for robotic and manned missions to the moon and beyond.
 
China has also raised taxes. As of Dec. 1, 1010, it began to charge foreign firms higher taxes to help finance local city maintenance, construction and schools. Earlier, the government put into place a number of policies, including hefty tax breaks, to attract foreign invest and foreign firms were charged 15 per cent while domestic businesses paid 33 per cent. Now both will pay the same higher rate. China has realized that foreign firms will continue invest even at higher rate. In fact, foreign firms say they would invest more in China.
 
"At any rate, we cannot resist the temptation of China, because it is such a strong economy with relatively cheaper labour costs and huge markets, while few other countries have such advantages," said Takeshi Uragami, general manager of Japan's Panasonic Corporation. Uragami said in 2011, Panasonic plans to conduct part of his product design in China.
 
Booming China shows that the United States, facing financial bankruptcy, should raise taxes on the rich to rein in deficit without undermining its crumbling public services. And look at booming Shangahi and not at some obscure American cities like Austin.

Dear Joe,

First I applaud your vision for Canada over and above the deceased Mr. Layton. While his passing is surely a national story Canada's continued involvement in Libya trumps in importance Layton's passing by a country mile.

In order for Canadians to fully understand why Canada is involved with NATO in the first place one needs to understand the background of this organization as well as the background of UNO. Without a full understanding of who was responsible for their creation and why they were created it's virtually impossible to understand the actions of PM Harper and the Conservative government.

You believe that Canada's foreign policy will be, as you say, "set in Washington." I believe you are either being a tad disingenuous or else naive but given the considerable amount of time you've spent on the block I trust it's the former of the two.

Canada's foreign policy, like the U.S.'s foreign policy, is dictated by those who control both these governments and believe me when I state that it isn't the electors of either nation. It is those who hold the purse strings of governments around the world who call the shots and that leads us, as always, back to Israel (sad a fact as that may be for some of your readers. Others will fully understand why I say this.)

It is mainly this nation and its supporters around the globe who will benefit from the actions of either of the two organizations mentioned above.

As for Syria it must be recognized that it has been under the influence of the Zionist entity since at least 1945 and likely much longer. It's the only explanation that removes the mystery of why it would escape the fate of Libya. Gadhafi, like Hitler, was too good of an example for the rest of the world. They had to be destroyed. God grant that in Libya's case they are able to withstand this onslaught and regain their sovereignty.

Some day analysts will be able to speak openly about the hidden factor in all the west's foreign affairs and then the dominoes of history will suddenly fall like waves.

Best,

Arthur Topham

Subject: A Warning from John Cleese - Sort of interesting -

In light of the dispatching of Osama Bin Laden
ALERTS TO THREATS IN 2011 EUROPE : BY JOHN CLEESE

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France 's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability.

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Libya and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards." They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbor" and "Lose."

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels .

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Australia , meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to "She'll be all right, Mate." Two more escalation levels remain: "Crikey! I think we'll need to cancel the Barbie this weekend!" and "The Barbie is canceled." So far no situation has ever warranted use of the final escalation level.

Letter - Re Jack Layton

Spin, spin, and more spin. The mainstream media in this country are a bunch of brainless, clueless fools.

Jack Layton just like Barack Obama was full of shit period. This tax and spend, socialist scum bag had the phoniest smile I have every seen. He was a phony, a bullshitter who fooled people for decades into a nice big fat pay check every year while spewing the same crap for decades. He stood for nothing but himself. He was nothing but a career, professional politician who sucked off the public tit for decades.

I couldn't care less about this scum bag that put a new leader, this separatist, anti-English language, pro bill 101 scum bag from Kebec, Nicole Turmel in charge of the NDP while he was dying of cancer. This speaks volumes about what type of person Layton really was.

So go ahead media, paint him out to be some great guy, some hero…blah, blah, blah. He was not. He was an opportunist, pure scum of the earth who fooled Canadians for decades. So long sucker.

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/Dave+Brown+Brock+Chisholm+warned+about+overpopulation/5286546/story.html
 
According to Brock Chisholm, the problems caused by overpopulation can only be solved when the interests of the global community take precedence over those of individual nation-states.  But while the United Nations is recognized as the world's most legitimate, universal international organization and purports to represent "We The Peoples", the organization was set up merely as a forum for governments, with the peoples of the world relegated to the sidelines. Decisions are made only by agents of government, with national interest most often the guiding factor.
A civil society initiative begun in 2007, the Campaign for a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA) hopes to overcome this deficit of direct democracy at the UN. The idea is to start with an advisory body at the UN - a citizens' watchdog with clout - that gradually transitions into a world parliament. Under Article 22, a UNPA could be created as a subsidiary body without the need for approval by the Security Council and without reforming the UN Charter. As a transitional measure until direct elections become possible, national parliaments could second MPs to the UNPA in proportion to party standings. Unlike UN ambassadors, UNPA parliamentarians would not take instruction from national governments, but would be directly accountable to citizens, and mandated to act according to conscience and the common good.
As the first director-general of the World Health Organization, Canadian Brock Chisholm played a seminal role at the United Nations. Today Canada could once again demonstrate vital leadership by championing the UNPA initiative, which for the first time would give citizens and their issues a direct voice at the UN.

Fukushima shows nuclear power is a long-term threat to environment and economy
 
Re ``The NDP`s pie-in-the-sky energy policy,`` by Paul Tuns (Aug. 22).
 
It is amazing that after Fukushima nuclear disaster, Paul Tuns can write such a contrived justification for nuclear power. The Fukushima nuclear disaster has again highlighted the dangers associated with nuclear energy.With thousands displaced by the meltdown and radioactive contamination, most Japanese have turned away from once touted ``safe`` nuclear energy. The catastrophe has also shaken the world's confidence in nuclear power. Germany, Switzerland and Denmark have also announced that they will abandon their nuclear programs.
 
Before Fukushima, nuclear power was aggressively  promoted as the silver bullet to fight global warming. After Fukushima, these claims sound hollow. Here are five reasons to reject nuclear energy:
 
1. Nuclear power also produces green house gases. The nuclear industry is extremely carbon intensive, using fossil fuels from mining to refining to transporting the nuclear raw material. The most potent green house gases --- the banned ozone-depleting CFCs -- continue to be released through uranium enrichment..
 
2. Nuclear power stations regularly release low-level radioactive particles to the biosphere and these particles accumulate in the foodchains long after the poswer plants are shut down.
 
3. Nuclear power can lead tro weapons proliferation. A 1,000 megawat nuclear reactor produces 500 pounds of plutonium. Only 10 pounds of plutonium  are required to make an atomic bomb. CANDU reactors supplied to India and Pakistan played a major part in nuclear proliferation in those countries.
 
4. Nuclear energy is extremely capital-intyensive. Construction of a single nuclear power plant costs billions of dollars. Without massive government subsidies, no private company will build a nuclear power station. In France, the imposition of nuclear energy on a gargantuan scale has brought massive economic problems. Forced to raise cash, its state-owned power company Electricite de France has been driven into enormous debt. Today, it owes $200 billion and is among the biggest debtors in the world.
 
5. Nuclear power stations produce highly radioactive wastes which have a half-life of thousands of years and there is viable way to store them. The idea of storing them  deep underground is prepostrous as they are likley to contaminate ground water and eventually surface water.

Subject: Fwd: The Rise and Fall of the Euro
To: Joe Hueglin Daily Digest <joe.hueglin@bellnet.ca>, ensign bulletin board <timothy@ftlcomm.com>

Neil & Balloon,
 
This attachment is a very long read (30+pages but stated as free of copyright)
 
The Good part starts when he talks about "money" NOT being a store of value, just a medium of exchange
 
Also he talks about "perpetual debt" borrowings NEVER intended to be retired (no sinking fund or ammort. schedule) just rolled over, compounding the principal and mortgaging the future generations incomes by (also)perpetuating higher levels of taxation.
 
He talks about the social-democratic "elites" borrowing for present needs (votes) irrespective of the future impact - their plan was to create the Marxian utopia ("workers paradise" with themselves in charge -with no capital investment)
 
He destroys the concept that "printing money is more inflationary than borrowing.
 
The focus is on the Euro
how the existing debt of individual countries was only "half the necessary task" - it left the countries the freedom to create NEW country-based debt "in Euros" that a)undermined the value of every euro and b)allowed "bad fiscal" counties to continue borrowing at "good country" rates/terms
 
I see it as applied to Canada
-upload all our municipal and provincial debt to ottawa (on a pro-rata formula as was done in 1867 ( ss.102-120)
-provinces (and municipalities) would then have their budgets balanced by the elimination of Public Debt Charges and the crazy system of Federal Transfers TO the provinces (initially dedicated to subsidizes specific "national" programs, but since 1995 with no strings attached) could be reduced
-Provincial bonds (if issued) would no longer be able to be used as "Reserves" or collateral by banks - but just be new local debt that the local political-economy would have to service
 
New part, not from article - my idea NB not proved or tested wholly:
Canada could then pay off the interest-bearing bonds/T-bills as they mature -paying the bondholders with printed currency .... backed by the Crown assets of Canada (85% of all land mass+ the mineral, timber, water etc wealth that is leased, sold, licensed or given away [with tax subsidies attached] for the sake of GDP, jods and foreign exchange AT FAR LESS THAN IT'S value /replacement cost)
 
Eventually the interest-bearing debt would be replaced with non-interest-bearing "equity-backed" bond/instruents (eliminating the debt servicing costs -currently a huge % of budget "spending") and over time the principal of those "equity issues" could be retired

Sweet crude of mine

Follow the money
On the banking front, WikiLeaks once again had already revealed [2] that the privatization of Libya's central bank was regarded as a golden "opportunity" for US banks. The shadow "rebel" bank facilitated by HSBC in all probability will take over - obviously not independent as the previous Libya Central Bank
but aligned with the Swiss-based Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the central bankers' central bank.
So bye-bye to "subversive", unifying Gaddafi ideas such as dumping the US dollar and the euro so Arab and African nations would start dealing in a new single currency - the gold dinar. It's crucial to note that most African nations - and a lot of Arabs - backed up the idea. The only serious contrarians in the region were South Africa and the Arab League (influenced by the House of Saud). Obviously Washington and the European Union (EU) were furious - to the point of calling NATO to the rescue. ...
