Just listened to you on CPAC re Syria and the dreadful massacre.

You know, as do our Opposition Leaders, that the Americans are behind the Rebels, are funding and arming them. They are also there on the ground directing and even participating themselves in terrorism attacks designed to discredit the Government of Syria. False flag operations on behalf of the Rebels. The U.S. Government was behind the most recent inhumane massacre.

The whole world knows this. Those NATO countries that support what you yourself are saying are knowingly lying

From NATO's point of view, The Syrian government must go in order for NATO to bomb and destroy the beautiful country of Iran. Thousands of innocent citizens will be killed....just like in Iraq and more recently Libya. The Government of Israel also lobbies for regime change in the Middle East. They care little about the deaths of countless people....including their own Jewish citizens.

For Canada to support the U.S. goal of "empire" and the Government of Israel in matters such as this is reprehensible and just plain wrong. Frankly it is truly "evil".
Canadians are not as dumb as you wish to think. It matters not what the corporately controlled media says.

We no longer believe our media nor do we believe our Government.

Paul Godfrey's big public push on newspaper ownership

Posted: 28 May 2012 06:40 PM PDT
Today, the Globe gets a copy of this: "Paul Godfrey memo to staff." Long story short, Postmedia newspapers are having great difficulty financially. Precious advertising dollars are going to online competition and print media is feeling the effects. This is not a new development for print media, we've been hearing about it for years. We also recently heard about the Globe itself going through some difficulties this summer and their contemplation of a paywall.

What is new in Godfrey's publicity push is something he said last week that should grab the attention of Canadians:
But now, at a time when print advertising revenue is dropping, Canadian newspapers are competing with foreign websites for online advertising, Godfrey said. "Corporations like Google, corporations like Facebook, corporations like the Huffington Post and AOL have all come to Canada. They are getting without providding the content more than 50 per cent of all the advertising reveenue going to the digital world," Godfrey said.
He suggested two possible solutions. "We should either remove the foreign-ownership rules that protected us 60 plus years ago and are not needed today. Or provide the same rules to Google, Facebook, the Huffington Post and others that if they're not controlled by Canadians the advertising that goes on there should not allowed to be deducted as a legitimate business expense."(emphasis added)

Godfrey will be lobbying the Heritage Department on his proposed solutions.

As things stand today, as noted in the report: "...if a newspaper or a chain falls into foreign ownership in Canada, the new owner has one year to ensure the majority owner is Canadian otherwise those who advertise with that publication cannnot deduct it as a business expense, which means "they're out of business." (Private companies must be 75 per cent Canadian-owned while it's 50.1 per cent for public ones.)"

Will the Harper government lift foreign-ownership rules for the newspaper bidness? With Postmedia and the Globe making such loud noises about financial hurt? Wouldn't that make for a radical change for Canada.

Just think of the possibilities.

Conservatives appeal in Etobicoke-Centre

Posted: 28 May 2012 02:12 PM PDT
"Tory in overturned Toronto election to go to Supreme Court."
Under the Canada Elections Act, the Supreme Court is required to hear an appeal of a contested election result "without delay and in a summary manner." Andres Garin, the court's executive legal officer, couldn't give firm details of how the case will be handled, noting this is the first time the top court has been involved in a contested election. But he said he imagines the court will set a date for a hearing after consulting both parties in the case. The court is sitting in June but Garin suspected the parties might want more time to prepare, which would most likely mean no hearing until the fall. He said a hearing during the summer, when the court normally does not sit, is possible but "highly unlikely."

"Without delay and in a summary manner" suggests to me, as a standard, that the Supreme Court should be taking this up sooner rather than later. A riding's result has been declared null and void. If that's not something requiring urgency to settle, then what is? As noted in the report, Wrzesnewskyj is requesting a hearing in June.

On the appeal, of course the Conservatives would take the opportunity. They have the money and they're going to use it to exhaust any possible appeal route they have. This is what they did with the in-and-out civil litigation that they dragged out for years, from 2006 until 2012, until they achieved majority government status.

The appeal also sends a message to any challenger that this is how far you will have to be prepared to go with the Conservatives. To the Supreme Court of Canada. That costs a lot of money and few have it to finance litigation that far. Makes me think a bursary fund of some sort might be contemplated, by people who care about the integrity of the electoral system, as a resource for candidates in this situation. Party funding is being squeezed, it's an idea.

Hope the Supreme Court gets its appeal calendar cleared and sends a message to Canadians that our electoral system is a priority!

Comment following the article:

It's good to see that former Progressive Conservatives are finally speaking out.   I had faith that Progressive Conservatives, with the odd exception which applies to all parties, were working in what they truly thought was the best interests of Canadians.  But for many years, they have been silent.

I really hope that they will have some influence on Mr. Harper.  If they don't, then I hope they have influence on the voters who used to vote Progressive Conservative and had their party stolen from them.

How census figures cement Harper's grip on power

John Ibbitson, Globe and Mail Update, Published Tuesday, May. 29, 2012 9:08AM EDT

The 2011 census confirms what the ballot box has already told us: Aspiring Canada votes Conservative. If the NDP or Liberals are ever to win government, they must break the bond between these aspirational voters and Stephen Harper.

The latest tranche of data released Tuesday morning by Statistics Canada paints a picture of a country that is about to get old. The population of seniors is growing; for the first time, those who are getting ready to leave the labour force (age 55 to 64) exceed those getting ready to enter it (aged 15 to 24). But the country is not aging uniformly. Younger, working-age Canadians are moving West, to where the jobs are. And within the big cities, the downtowns are aging differently than the suburbs. The Conservatives are the party of the West and the party of suburbs. That is why Stephen Harper is Prime Minister.

Once again, the census paints a picture of three Canadas. The proportion of the population over 65 is higher than the national average in Quebec and in Atlantic Canada. Ontario is about average. The West, except for the retirement Mecca of British Columbia, is younger than average. Generally, an older society is a poorer society, because seniors consume more from government than they contribute through taxes, and because the economy is unable to provide the jobs needed to keep young people from leaving town in search of work.

These consuming provinces east of the Ottawa River predominantly vote NDP or Liberal. The contributing provinces of Western Canada, where a booming resource centre acts as a job magnet, vote Conservative. But it's much more than a story of East versus West. Even more, it's a story of downtowns versus suburbs. As the census observes: "Differences in age structure between central and peripheral areas are particularly striking" in Canada's largest cities.

In the suburban communities surrounding Toronto, the percentage of families with young children is well above the national average. The percentage of older Canadians is below average. These edge cities – Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan, Markham, Ajax and Pickering, Oshawa – are largely middle-class. They have large populations of working parents. They pay more in federal taxes than they consume in federal services. Many of them are immigrants who have done well. In the last federal election, almost every riding in this suburban belt went Conservative.

In Toronto itself, the number of both seniors and families with children is both below the national average. The city has a large population of singles and DINKs, (double-income-no-kids). Many of these voters are well-educated professionals who work the financial, educational and cultural industries. And the ridings of downtown Toronto are Liberal or NDP. Both the demographics and the political results are mirrored in Vancouver, (though the population of retirees is higher there, thanks to the weather). Local cultures, of course, influence results. In Montreal, the Liberals did well in English enclaves; in Calgary the Conservatives prevailed in every postal code; parts of rural English Canada, though older and poorer than the national average, voted Conservative for cultural reasons.

But where it counts, in the populous communities outside the downtowns of cities in English Canada, suburban middle-class voters who seek a better life both for themselves and for their children vote for the party that they believe will look after the economy, protect their jobs and keep their taxes low. In the next election, these suburban cities will receive the lion's share of the 30 new seats being added to the House of Commons. Those seats will go Conservative, too, unless the Liberals or the NDP can think of a way to make aspirational Canadians change their minds.

Dear Elizabeth May, Green Party Leader and Member of Parliament.

Greetings from a Green/Conservative on Vancouver Island.

The Daily Digest below is from the former Conservative Party now the PC Party, Progressive Canadian Party.

PC members are conservatives who did not join the Harper/Reform takeover.

My guess is that the Prime Minister has staff monitoring the Daily Digest.

DD Editor, Joe Hueglin is a former PC Member of Parliament for Niagara Falls.

Scroll half way down the site and see my Vancouver Hearings  link. 

Thanks to Joe Hueglin for posting that link for his readers.

Best wishes for success to the Vancouver Hearings in June.

I hope the Green Party and PC Party send observers.

And I hope the Prime Minister sends RCMP and CSIS.

Joe, What is making the rounds is the connections between governments of any stripe, and how their policies are mirroring one another in remarkable stealth fashion all over the world, no matter in the developed and developing countries of the world. Amazing the same tactics no matter if the leader is a known dictator, a tyrant to the left leaning governments and to the severe right turn, that has taken in Canada.

Before, I kick start this post, Joe I am surprise that you are in agreement with Peggy, and her obvious spreading of misconceptions concerning voting procedures at the voting booth. If that is happening as she implies, time to dump the people who were hired, because it is obviously that they are not following the rules. In the big cities, yes it is a pain, when a voter does not show up with his voter card from Election Canada, his picture ID, and another identification attesting to who they are and address of the person. Last federal election, and more so since Harper has enter the picture, it is becoming a real pain to vote, and more so for the urban dwellers compared to the small rural communities. Picture this, a roomful of ladies who all could identified me, where I live without the necessity of asking me for ID, and even knew which table to go to, to pick up my ballot. Rather amusing, and than I asked what happens if I don't have all three sets of identification? I like many other who do not have pictured ID, would have to be sworn in. When it takes 5 minutes to process one voter who has all the ID, imagine how long does it take to process voters who do not have the required 3 IDs? Imagine this process in the urban cities, and Peggy has a beef with the immigrants. Better worry about the everyday Canadians, who may be voting in multiple polling stations, if Peggy is correct in her assertions that the requirement of the 3 IDs is not in place, than the solution is not door to door enumeration. Why? The costs of the door to door enumeration, will results in the reduction of polling stations, that in turn voters will have to travel further distances to vote, longer waiting lines and more importantly people will still turn up without the required ID or the voter card from Elections Canada.

The polling stations have been decreasing at a steady pace for the last 30 years, and more so in the urban settings to save a few bucks, and it is happening across the world. Why? Make it as difficult to vote, and the ones that opt out for whatever reasons, is a boon for all political parties, even for the extreme parties of the left and right. And of course the rise of minority governments all over the world, that at least practice democratic principles as the window dressing.

But what I like and found most amusing is this line from Peggy's post, to declare that the federal government, are a bunch of naive adults, who don't have the intelligence to protect themselves from hackers. " Their motive is to destroy the credibility of the Conservative Party and in my opinion the media have unfairly labelled the Conservative Party as the perpetrators without any solid proof! In this day of computer technology there is NO security and hacking has become an art used by creative users and there is no way to control or investigate the individuals So anyone could have got into voters lists and been able to identify party affiliations "

Really now, the government has no way of protecting themselves because there is no security, and therefore are open up to the to the hackers of creativity, because the government has no way of controlling the actions or investigating the hackers. Any 10 year old, worth their salt can hack into their best buddy's facebook site, providing their best friends don't have the crucial security in place, that can be had for free or on subscription. Tsk, tsk and it is another tactic that government uses to play the victim, and in reality it is the governments that have the best secure systems in the world, including the political parties. The only way the robo calls to occur, someone or a group of individuals at the highest levels of the Conservative Party of Canada headquarters to give the information to make hay to prevent voters from voting, and if not, there is a new set of hackers that will have jobs working for the government looking after the security of their systems, and if not government, at some big IT company or multi-international company looking for the best to secure their networks. Anyone worth their salt, knows how to do the mickey-mouse stuff in hacking their next door neighbour's computer, but it takes a real pro to hack government servers, let along a multi-international company. Governments are no more victims, because they already have the best secure systems money can buy, but not the average citizen, who has more worries than a neighbour trying to hack in. It is the government, and their creative ways of spying on the average citizens. Peggy's tactic, is spewing misconceptions, half-truths to twist and convince the readers, the big powerful government of Canada, has no authority over the actions of would-be hackers. Besides that Peggy, I actually expect the Canadian government as well as the different levels of government to protect and safeguard my privacy by having secure networks, as I do in my home, although I have no protection from the spying eye of governments and its agencies if they become curious as to who I communicate to on facebook. A pain, but it is a reality in this world, and I know very well that portraying the federal government as a victim without power is little disingenuous on your part. The Robo Calls scandal should be promptly be seen in the courts, but that will never happen if the Conservative government has its way. They really do swing a stick will a lot more power and authority, and is being used to swat the victims - ordinary Canadian - with a sledge hammer on all those who opposes the Conservative government.

Time to wake up Peggy, and seems to be the favourite mantra this week.

On the DD blog today, it is indeed a very good article called Versailles on the Ottawa. "In her stint as First Lady, Nancy Reagan did three things to show that Marie Antoinette had no imagination.

First, she had an exact replica of her bed shipped anywhere in the world when she was traveling for state reasons longer than three days and two nights because she liked to sleep in her "own" bed. Second, she insisted that every bedroom assigned to her be painted red, her favorite color.

Finally, the workmen who constructed her bed-away-from-home also had to re-hang all the mirrors in the First Lady's room so that when she looked into them she saw more than the top of her head. Details courtesy of Lewis H. Lapham.

The Harper government has more than a touch of Queen Nancy. It has already morphed into Versailles on the Ottawa. The facts, and the rules, are being made up as this crowd goes along ........"

That outdoes the orange juice caper of one Conservative minister.....

Nothing that history has shown, when government rule by stealth changing the rules/regulation and laws to suit governments who have lost their moral authority. Shown since the dawn of mankind, and one can start with the Roman Empire, and the Celtic Tribes. How the Romans admired the Celtic Tribes, especially the Germanic tribes, and their determination not to loose their culture, their language and their way of life and not adapt the Roman way of doing things. No doubt, it has some bearing today, and the identical policies being played out in one country after another. If some think Harper is bad, coming down hard on seasonal workers, take a yonder over to what the German government is doing. The Conservative government of Canada, looks like the choir boys compared to the German government.

"Graham Summers, of Phoenix Capital Research, just back from Europe says:

"The situation in Europe is bad… How BAD? Well, France, Spain, and Germany have ALL implemented border controls. Spain, France, and Germany can each close their borders for up to 30 days at any point if they so choose. Why are they doing this? Because they know that when the stuff hits the fan and the EU collapses (which it will in the next few months) people are going to attempt to flee with their money… so they have made it so that no one can get it… and no one can get out,"

Yes, all the global economies, to the national levels of countries and right down to the households are all based debt financing to keep producing record profits among the banks and global corporations along with handpicked approved NGOs to provide the charity and feel good projects for those who are determined to keep the the worker bees (the citizens) in hock from infancy to death and after death. How? The identical tactics being mirrored across the world, no matter the stripe of the government, by reducing the health, education services, putting clamps on mobility of citizens, and reducing the overall benefits and wages receives either by government or employer, and regulating citizens lives via through the regulation regime, eventually turning the regulations into a set of legislated laws in the countries that have an appearance of a functional democracy.

Time to wake up citizens, but first a link from a respected organization, that has the respect of all governments, on the background information necessary to connect the dots, from the top to the bottom where law abiding citizens who live ordinary lives, are now the target to keep this ponzi scheme that the globalists have cook up for themselves, to profit on everything that moves, including the negative outcomes of their citizens, if they should be without a job, broke, and the every day misfortunes that befall people through no fault of their own. Keep them in debt and force them to sell their soul to the government store, and in some quarters, volunteer to fall on the government's sword. And some do, with their lives.......

Osama Abbasi, Chief Executive Officer Asia Pacific, Credit Suisse said: "Our second edition of the Global Wealth Report reconfirms again that these are times of unprecedented economic change, and a radical reconfiguration of the world's economic order is taking shape. Emerging markets are important drivers of the global recovery and remain the key growth engines of global wealth."

Giles Keating, Global Head of Research for Private Banking and Asset Management, Credit Suisse and a member of the Credit Suisse Research Institute Operating Committee, said: "Credit Suisse believes this fast emerging wealth will drive new trends in consumption and investment in Asia, underpinning Credit Suisse's proprietary thematic research initiatives on Global Megatrends of Demographics and Multipolar World. The much higher debt per adult level in Europe versus Asia, together with the much higher wealth growth rate in Asia versus Europe, suggests there may be scope for significant mutual collaboration to help mitigate the euro debt crisis."

Stefano Natella, Global Head of Equity Research for Investment Banking and a member of the Credit Suisse Research Institute Operating Committee, said: "Unlike other studies, the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report generates unique proprietary data and aims to offer the most comprehensive study of world wealth. It analyzes the wealth distribution of all the 4.5 billion adults in the world in more than 200 countries, using a rigorous and independent research approach."

At the end of the report, a little disclaimer and important information on determining wealth.

"
Notes to Editors
- The Report defines wealth as the value of financial assets and non-financial assets (mainly real estate), minus household debt.
- All current data relate to mid-2011 and are at then-current market exchange rates (not purchasing power parity).
- The figures presented in the Report are based on the best available data on household assets and debts, updated and estimated where necessary. Full information on sources and methodology is provided in the Global Wealth Databook 2011.
- Projections to 2016 are made by the Credit Suisse Research Institute and are based on forecasts of the three components of wealth, financial assets, non-financial assets and debts"

The next grab of increasing and transferral of wealth from the citizens to the people who hold the political and economic powers, as well as the biggest purses, The last grab took place in 2008, and the next set will take place probably in 2014, when the citizens of the countries are too busy defending their own turf, protecting themselves from the sheer power and authority of their governments and busy paying for the tab, to keep their standard of living in place.

Am I talking off my head? No, because the next post will show the consequences of citizens far remove from the North America, giving you the realities that ordinary citizens are dealing with, and it is about to make an appearance in North America, thanks largely to two different governments of differing stripes, quite willing to sacrifice their citizens and their standard of living. It will be the standard of living that the government is willing to grant, and the greatest illusion is that all political parties that are not part of the fringe, are all on board. It makes the history of Hitler and Lenin look like pussy cats, compared to the governments of today, of what they are willing to do to make the citizens dance to the government tunes. And I am only talking about the developed countries, and the ruling elite have the gall to tell citizens that other citizens in the third world, have a much harder life, than the citizens in the developed countries. Read the above link well. Study it. Note the language of the paper, and note who the intended readers are. Not me or you or the other average citizens that is for sure.

And more importantly, none of us can look forward to an increase in wealth any time soon, compared to growing share of wealth own by the global political and economic powers. But we can look forward to financing our lives with debt capital, and that is if one can keep a good credit record. If not, there is always the charities that are quite willing to profit off the backs of the destitute. Food banks is such a creature, that has morphed into a profitable sideline of a network that stretches across Canada, and the bonus the citizens with the means to purchase foods, and the governments can safely ignore the policies that 5 million Canadians do not fulfilled their nutrition needs at least 4 days a month, and for some they only eat one meal a day. Just like in China, but it is done openly in their policies, compared to the governments policies of stealth in North America and other democratic countries.

BBC uses fake photo for Houla massacre 29 May 2012 The British state-run broadcaster BBC has been caught passing off an old photo from Iraq in 2003 for the massacre in the Syrian town of Houla. In a report published hours after the massacre, the network used an old photo of dead Iraqi children taken in Al Mussayyib that was first published over nine years ago and presented it as a photo of victims of the recent massacre of civilians in the town of Houla in western Syria, The Telegraph reported. The photographer who took the original picture, Marco Di Lauro, posted on his Facebook page, "Somebody is using my images as a propaganda against the Syrian government to prove the massacre."

US responsible for Houla massacre: Iran Majlis
28 May 2012 The new Iranian Majlis (parliament) has strongly condemned the ruthless massacre of defenseless Syrians in Houla, saying the US is responsible for the attack. "The barbaric massacre of the innocent people of Houla, in Homs, is reminiscent of the merciless terrorist atrocities in Sabra and Shatila and is a blatant symbol of terrorist acts and mass murder in this juncture of human history," the 9th Majlis lawmakers said in a statement Monday. On May 25, deadly clashes broke out between Syrian forces and armed groups in Houla, located in the central province of Homs.

Heads up! USociopaths are trolling for new wars: US military warns Syria as pressure builds on Obama --Top US general warns military is prepared to act if 'necessary' 28 May 2012 The US's top military officer has warned Syria it could face armed intervention as international outrage grows over the massacre of women and children by [non-Bashar] tanks and artillery in Houla. General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, said that following the UN security council's condemnation of the slaughter – in which more than 100 people were killed – there needed to be increased diplomatic pressure on Damascus. But he added that the US would be prepared to act militarily if it was "asked to do so". [LOL! The only sociopaths to 'ask' for US 'help' would be other predators, such as ExxonMobil, BP, and Blackwater.]
