Barroso Says EU Will Overcome
Thursday, September 29, 2011 – by Staff Report
It seems very clear that the powers-that-be subscribe to the idea that they have been chosen to deliver appropriate direction to the masses. This sense that one has a kind of divine right to rule was supposed to have dissipated years ago – at least last century – but the EU's top people obviously believe they are Charlemagne's second coming.
The only reason they could believe this is because they have the backing of money power – endless torrents of central banking fiat paper controlled by a handful of individuals at the apex of the Anglosphere power elite. But what they may not realize is that they too are perhaps being manipulated, that those who seek to run the world via military force and political unions will betray their enablers without a backwards glance....

Hébert: Harper has no intention of relaxing his grip
 
Ms H,

cc L Martin (I've been corresponding with him re: Harperland ... but he's busy being an 'authority' these days)

Now it is essential that the Executive Order Part III -GG & Privy Council, incl Clerk and PCO- be restored to its place "above" the Legislative Order Part IV.

This misconception that the PM is the "head of state & commander in Chief", a "Friendly Dictator" as so many perceive, must end.

The merger of the PMO & the PCO only occurred, by Order in Council in 1940.

Under cover of wartime emergency Wm L M King drafted, presented and approved P.C. 1940-1121

This manoeuvre expanded the Clerk role to handle Cabinet business (lengthen the Job Title) and led to the current situation -in existence as long as anyone can remember ..... but it's contrary to the spirit AND letter of the BNA Act 1867.

Do we want a written Constitution? (ours is only similar in principle to the UK's un-written one)

If so, why not follow its provisions?

The alternative is the change-horses-mid-stream, my-way-or-the-highway authoritarianism of a single officeholder.

Your column can broach this "little fact" to a huge audience who all seek a solution - but cannot find it, because it's right under their noses in the foundational rule book ...

Here's the test, to bring awareness - ask anyone of your top-level colleagues to explain the difference between section 12 ( GG) and section 13 (GG in Council).

Like the child in the Emperor's New Clothes - once they see the obvious - the merged PMO-PCO is not legal - we can bring an end to this perilously dangerous, blatantly anti-constitutional usurpation of the Executive by the Legislative.

Sincere regards

Subject: Fwd: Fw: More on smart meters
Just another "sneaky Dalton tax + HST" coming up ("if" Dalton gets re-elected).
Just one more reason to oust the Liberal government on Oct 6.

It never stops

Soon you are going to have to pay for the privilege of having it forced on you, plus, you guessed it, you are going to have to pay HST on the extra fee. But not until next year. Not something you are supposed to know about before an election.

At least the smart meters were made in Ontario right? Nope made in Korea.
Korea IT Times.
http://koreaittimes.com/story/15485/smart-meter-shipments-totaled-174-million-units-worldwide-during-1st-quarter-2011

Buried on a footnote on page 1-102, of volume 2a of the 2010 Ontario Public Accounts is a revelation that Dalton McGuinty's Minister of Energy quietly approved a request from the Independent Electricity Systems Operator to apply to the Ontario Energy Board for a new tax called Smart Meter Service Fees.

Page 13 of the Independent Electricity System Operator's 2011-2013 Business Plan confirms that the Dalton McGuinty Liberals are already budgeting to collect $33 million per year in Smart Meter Service Fees beginning in 2012. Over the next four years, this would cost Ontario families $132 million to run the smart meter super computer.

This new Smart Meter Tax will be applied to smart meter hydro bills above and beyond the higher costs of "time of use pricing".

Already under Dalton McGuinty, hydro rates have gone up 84 percent and 150 percent for homes with a smart meter, not to mention the $1 billion ($200 per household) price tag that came with installing smart meters.

IT'S NOW IN YOUR HANDS—DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT !!!!

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/us-eyes-fencing-along-canadian-border/article2184300/

Nearly half of Canadians oppose greater integration with U.S. law enforcement
Deal to smooth U.S.-Canada border woes inches closer to reality
The border service is also pondering options including a beefed-up technological presence through increased use of radar, sensors, cameras, drones and vehicle scanners. In addition, it might continue to improve or expand customs facilities at ports of entry.
The agency considered but ruled out the possibility of hiring "significantly more" U.S. Border Patrol agents to increase the rate of inspections, noting staffing has already risen in recent years.
The proposals are spelled out in a new draft report by the border service that examines the possible environmental impact of the various options over the next five to seven years.
Customs and Border Protection is inviting comment on the options and plans a series of public meetings in Washington and several U.S. border communities next month. It will then decide which ideas to pursue.
U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano noted last month the challenges of monitoring the vast, sparsely populated northern border region. She stressed manpower, but also a greater reliance on technology.
Ironically, the moves come as Canada and the U.S. try to finalize a perimeter security arrangement that would focus on continental defences while easing border congestion. It would be aimed at speeding passage of goods and people across the Canada-U.S. border, which has become something of a bottleneck since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Relatively speaking, Washington has focused more energy and resources on tightening security along the border with Mexico than at the sprawling one with Canada.
But that may be changing.
A U.S. Government Accountability Office report recently warned that only a small portion of the border with Canada is properly secure. It said U.S. border officers control just 50 kilometres of the 6,400-kilometre boundary.
The Customs and Border Protection report says while fences have been a big element in deterring unauthorized crossings of the U.S.-Mexican border, "it is unlikely that fencing will play as prominent a role" on the northern border, given its length and terrain that varies from prairie to forest.
However, the agency would use fencing and other barriers such as trenches to control movement and sometimes delay people trying to sneak across the border, increasing the likelihood they could be caught, says the report.
It doesn't provide details about what the fences might look like, but suggests they would be designed to blend into the environment and "complement the natural landscape."
The approach would also involve upgrading roadways and trails near the border.
"The lack of roads or presence of unmaintained roads impedes efficient surveillance operations," says the report. "Improving or expanding the roadway and trail networks could improve mobility, allowing agents to patrol more miles each day and shortening response times."
Over the last two years, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has already made what it calls "critical security improvements along the northern border," adding inspectors at the ports of entry and Border Patrol agents between ports, as well as modernizing land crossings.
Nearly 3,800 Customs and Border Protection officers scrutinize people and goods at crossings. The number of Border Patrol agents working between crossings along the northern parallel has increased 700 per cent since Sept. 11, 2001. And some three dozen land ports of entry are being modernized.
Unmanned U.S. aircraft patrol about 1,500 kilometres along the northern border from Washington to Minnesota as well as more than 300 kilometres of the Canadian border around New York state and Lake Ontario.

Mr Trost--I am writing to thank you for having the moral courage to stand against this promoting and paying for abortion in countries that have the morals to refuse to murder unborn babies.  But then, I guess any government that sees nothing wrong with bombing innocent children in Libya would not see anything wrong with funding killing babies before they are born?  I wonder if the Harper government will give aid to the babies born in Libya when they are born deformed by the DU that we are dropping on them with great congratulatory back slapping?  
What does the government not understand about the fact that funding an agency that supports abortion promotes abortion?  Using our tax dollars to bring other countries down to our level of immorality does nothing for us or the world.  Perhaps this money could be better used to support our people at home so they wouldn't feel the need to kill their own babies?
Thank you again for your courage.

Is Simpson saying that Harper is  a toady for israel?  If this is the case then why did they even bother counting the votes of others, or why did we spend millions on an election?  For that matter, why does anyone else even bother to vote?  Or why does not Harper et al tell us before the election who they will be governing for, Canada or israel?  Any thinking voter knows where Harper's allegience lies and it is not with Canada.  We are down the list of what is important to him--just keep paying taxes and shut up. 
350,000 dictate how the rest of us will be governed?  That is democracy? 
Sadly, I thought to vote in Canada you had to be a Canadian citizen.  So why are we being divided into special interest groups?  This says to me that our governments care not a damn what Canadians think--they only care what special interest groups want.  This bodes ill for Canada.  And it is also an insult to the groups polled. 
The article also proves that polls are for dogs--they know what to do with a poll(pole)

Prior to the BC Clean Energy Act, any BC Hydro project greater than $50 million required regulatory review by the BC Utilities Commission, and  an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN). The application included mandatory public consultation and afforded citizens and any other stakeholders an opportunity to question the claimed benefits of the project. It was up to BC Hydro to demonstrate that the project was in the best interest of the ratepayer.

But in 2010, the BC Government passed the Clean Energy Act, which exempted the Smart Meter Program from the regulatory review process and denied the public their chance to scrutinize the Smart Meter program.  But then why should B.C. taxpayers expect public consultation on a billion dollar project from the B.C. Liberals, the same democrats who gave us the HST?

Hi Joe: below, my perpective on the debate.  Hudak could make life better for us in Ontario..........

Horwath held her own with charm, but with a weak closing statement.  She said "I think" rather than stating her position.  Good local policy on corporate tax cuts, but failed to recognize the existing global economy and multi-tiered health care system.  She could, however, perform well as official opposition to a Hudak Government. 

McGuinty didn't let the facts get in the way of his spins.  Then he slipped into an acknowledging winced in the face of the truth of all the suffering he has caused the people of Ontario.  He then quivered with exaggerated movement to the strength and honesty of Tim Hudak who came out strong for health care, education and the economy.  Hudak breaths real internal balance that goes beyond mere public performance.

Simply put, we are not buying the bullshit, we never will buy the bullshit, and we won't ever forget the bullshit as long as Tony Clement is there to remind us.

It is kind of like those four RCMP cops that lit up that Polish guy in the Vancouver airport FOUR times, then tried to cover it up.

Subject: Re: Opinion on Canada's involvement in Libya


Joe,
 
Here is my two cents on military armed conflicts:
 
No Country should start a military armed conflict.
Having said that, unfortunately, in a world where some countries cannot solve their differences without military armed conflicts, allow me to express my views on the subject.
 
Any country that is forced into a war situation should make a quick and final decision as to whether to surrender without a fight, or engage the attacking foe.
When the decision has been made to defend oneself, the politicians should take 100 paces backward and hand over the task of defending their country in the hands of the Generals of their military divisions - land, air and sea with the explicit order to get the conflict over and done with in a hurry.
This means that the armed forces are told to use the biggest stick they have at their disposal right at the beginning of the hostilities. If the sticks they have are not big enough, make sure they can get ones big enough to do the job in a hurry. And get all the boots on the ground, in the air and at sea you can muster on the double.
And keep the politicians out of military decisions.
I say this because in Vietnam, in Afghanistan and many other military conflicts around the world since WWII, the politicians of the US, NATO countries and many of their allies around the world never intended to win these wars.
 
They could have won these wars. They had the military MIGHT had they been willing to use it.

These wars could have been won in a matter of months. But the politicians meddled. It was politically expedient to look as if they were doing something, but not politically expedient to win these wars. The Soviet Union did the same thing in Afghanistan. The got out the losers. So will NATO and the US.
 
Incredibly, most of the countries that have engaged and beat the US, NATO and their allies since WWII were no match for the military MIGHT the latter could have brought to bear on these tin pot regimes. Even the Soviet Union had the military MIGHT to win. But they didn't have the resolve either.
 
Either you get involved in these wars, or you don't. And if you do, you'd better have the resolve to WIN and do whatever it takes to do so.

You have to pound the enemy long and hard until they have lost the will to fight. And once they have, you inflict upon them a last deadly blow to make sure they don't change their minds.
 
In the foreseeable future the FREE WORLD, if we can call ourselves free, will face a determined foe who has greater resolve than we'll ever have. And I can tell you that the so-called FREE WORLD doesn't have an iota of resolve as this foe has.

As a result, I honestly believe our great-grand-children will speak another language, their wives and daughters will not dress the way ours do.

WHY? Because we tolerate the intolerable because we are too nice; or is it because we don't have the gonads to stand up for our way of life, for our beliefs and our principles?
 
I have no faith in the politicians of the FREE WORLD to win any armed military conflicts in the foreseeable future.
 
The civilian population is no better. They cry "ATROCITY" at the number of soldiers we have lost in Afghanistan over the years we have been involved there, not realizing that during WWI AND WWII we were losing that many in matter of hours every day.

Don't get me wrong, I deplore the loss of lives in these conflicts. Unfortunately they are unavoidable.
 
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. THERE IS A HEAVY AND COSTLY PRICE TO PAY FOR IT.
 
LETS REMEMBER THAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT SURRENDERING TO ANY FOE.
 
I can already hear the labels that will be directed at me. All I can say to this, there will always be many who can't handle the truth.

You either fight or surrender. And if you decide to fight, you fight to win.
