Canada: Legislation limits free speech for
journalists
Canadian journalists will face fines for commenting on the striking
action of trade unionists under new legislation
passed in the province of Alberta.
Canadian journalists will face fines for commenting on the
striking action of trade unionists under new legislation passed in the
province of Alberta. As reported by Index on Censorship
earlier
this
week Bill 45 and Bill 46 will see heavy sanctions placed on those
who partake in illegal picketing or comment publicly on those doing so.
Both bills passed through their third and final readings on Wednesday 4
December, in front of a full gallery of concerned members of the
public
Journalists now face fines of $500 a day for any comments made regarding
support for union strikes. Alongside this, Bill 45 also limits the
discussion of striking action or threats to strike by civil
servants,  fining unions $1 million a day unless they are able to
convince a court they were not responsible for or encouraging of the
striking talk.
Don Braid said in the Calgary Herald this week:  "It's hard to
imagine a more blatant violation of free speech, a right that always
implies a certain social anarchy to function usefully. People are not
allowed to break laws, but they are permitted, except in obvious cases of
threatening harm, to talk about challenging, testing, pushing or even
breaking them. The offence is in the breaking, not the talking. But not
for Alberta's public unions. Talking is now pretty much
illegal."

Interesting. I never read of this in any
newspapers.  Have you? Reckon it's of no importance.

Subject: With Israel lacking the capability and the U.S. suffering combat
fatigue, only negotiation can stop Iran
Date: Sun, 8 Dec 2013 23:27:54 -0500
Mr. Jonathan Kay
Opinion Editor
National Post
 
Copy to: Mr, Charles Krauthammer, Columnist fo The Washington Post:
You seem not to realize that if israel had the cababilty to destroy
Iran's nuclear installations, it would have done so long ago and
exhausted by two bloody wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, most Americans are
suffering from combat fatigue and President Barack Obama, like his
predecessor President George, has no desire to get involved in a new war
with Iran. And Iran can be stopped from going through negotiation. And,
like pariah nuclear-armed North Korea, a nuclear-armed Iran will become
an international pariah. Nuclear-armed Iran will be the greatest threat
to Iran.
 
With Israel lacking the capability and
the US suffering combat fatigue, only negotiation can stop Iran from
going nuclear
 
In his December, 6 Op-Ed: "Projecting weakness on three
fronts," Charles Krauthammer writes: "Equally dumbfounded are
the Israelis, now trapped by an agreement designed less to stop the
Iranian nuclear program than to prevent the Isaeli Air Force from
stopping the Iranian nuclear program." Before writing this, he
should have asked himself the question: Why didn't Israel, which
considers a nuclear-armed Iran as an existentialist threat, destroy
Iran's nuclear installations in the same way it destroyed Syria's much
smaller nuclear installations in 2007?
 
Answer to the question had been provided by Norman Podhoretz, editor at
large of Commentary, published by the American Jewish Committee.
In a hard-hitting article: "Stopping Iran: Why the Case for Military
Action Still Stands," published in the February 2008 issue, Mr.
Podhoretz wrote: "Tempting as it must be for George Bush to sit back
and let the Israelis do the job, there are considerations that should
give him pause. ... To make matters worse, the indications are that it
would be very hard for the Israeli Air Force, superb though it is, to
pull the mission off. ... the problem is that for the mission to succeed,
all of the many contingencies involved would have to go right. Hence an
Israeli attempt could end with the worst of all possible outcomes:
retaliatory measures by the Iranians even as their nuclear program
remained unscathed." Israel cannot afford to take such a risk by
striking Iran. This explains why Israel didn't carry out any
pre-emptive  strike against Iran's nuclear reactors in the same way
it carried out a surgical pre-emptive strike against Syria's nuclear
installations in 2007.
 
Mr. Podhoretz's prescription had been: "The upshot is that is that
if Iran is to be prevented from becoming a nuclear power, it is the
United States that will have to do the preventing, to do it by means of a
bombing campaign, and (because "If we wait for the threats to fully
materialize, we will have waited too long") to do it soon." But
in 2008, Mr. Bush was embroiled in two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and
he had no desire to become embroiled in a third war with Iran. So,
despite he kept declaring that Iran must not be permitted to get the bomb
and despite he kept warning that the "military option" was on
the table, he did nothing.
 
His successor President Barack Obama is even more reluctant to get
involved in a new war with Iran. In 2013, exhausted by two bloody wars in
Afghanistan and Iraq, most Americans are suffering from what can be
called "the terminal combat fatigue syndrome": the reluctance
to shed any more American blood and treasure in distant lands, unless the
U.S. security is directly at stake. This explains why most Americans
remain opposed to any military intervention in the civil war in Syria,
even though they think that Bashar Assad is an odious dictator who has
used chemical weapons against his own people.
 
This brings the issue of sanction against Iran into focus. Sanctions
against Iran have been crippling. Unlike a nuclear-armed North Korea,
which is propped up by its giant neighbour, China, Iran has no such
powerful backer and it is heavily dependent on oil exports to Europe and
Japan for its economic survival. As such, Iran cannot afford to defy the
international community and a nuclear-armed Iran will become a pariah
with no one to back it up. This explains why Iran has signed an agreement
which will heavily curtail its nuclear-enrichment program. The interim
agreement with Iran, freezing its nuclear program for six months,
represents a huge achievement. Even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu is likely to accept it if Iran complies with the agreement. If
Iran tries to backtrack, samctions can be re-imposed.
 
Iran must have come to realize that a nuclear-armed Iran will become an
international pariah like the nuclear-armed North Korea. North Korea has
at least a powerful friend to prop it up. Iran's friends -- Syria and
Hezbollah -- are heavily dependent on Iran for their own survival and
they cannot bankroll Iran facing an economic collapse because of
sanctions. One lame cannot help another. Israel need not be worried. Iran
cannot defy international community. Its own economic survival will be at
stake if it goes nuclear.

Dear Jeff:
I am very saddened to hear of a 500% increase in human trafficking
& exploitation in Alberta, even sexual exploitation. This is
why I'm so glad that the Young Womens Christian Association
(YWCA) & its Executive Director, Jacqueline Foord have been
given a federal grant to battle this issue. It affects mainly women &
young girls. Still, men & boys are also victims & when we are
supposed to promote freedom of dignity & human rights in today's
modern age & then still have in affect enslavement of people, there
is definitely something wrong with society!

Shit happens.
Begin forwarded message:
Subject: 2013 Darwin Awards
  You've been waiting for them
with baited breath, so without further ado, here are the 2013 Darwin
Awards:
*Eighth Place
In Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water
after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to
retrieve his
car keys.
*Seventh Place
A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zoned when he
ran",
accidentally jogged off a 100-foot high cliff on his daily run.
*Sixth Place
While at the beach, Daniel Jones, 21, dug an 8 foot hole for protection
from the wind and had been sitting in a beach chair at the bottom, when
it
collapsed, burying him beneath 5 feet of sand. People on the beach used
their
hands and shovels trying to get him out but could not reach him. It took
rescue workers using heavy equipment almost an hour to free him. Jones
was
pronounced dead at a hospital.
*Fifth Place
Santiago Alvarado, 24, was killed as he fell through the ceiling of a
bicycle shop he was burglarizing. Death was caused when the long
flashlight he
had placed in his mouth to keep his hands free rammed into the base of
his
skull as he hit the floor.
*Fourth Place
Sylvester Briddell, Jr., 26, was killed as he won a bet with friends who
said he would not put a revolver loaded with four bullets into his mouth
and
pull the trigger.
**Third Place
After stepping around a marked police patrol car parked at the front
door,
a man walked into H&J Leather & Firearms intent on robbing the
store. The
shop was full of customers and a uniformed officer was standing at the
counter. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up
and fired
a few wild shots from a target pistol.
The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, and several customers
also
drew their guns and fired. The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by
Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases
in
the shop. The subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds.
Ballistics
identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was
hurt.
*HONORABLE MENTION
Paul Stiller, 47, and his wife Bonnie were bored just driving around at 2
A.M. so they lit a quarter stick of dynamite to toss out the window to
see
what would happen. Apparently they failed to notice that the window was
closed.
RUNNER UP
Kerry Bingham had been drinking with several friends when one of them
said
they knew a person who had bungee-jumped from a local bridge in the
middle
of traffic. The conversation grew more excited, and at least 10 men
trooped
along the walkway of the bridge at 4:30 AM. Upon arrival at the midpoint
of
the bridge, they discovered that no one had brought a bungee rope.
Bingham,
who had continued drinking, volunteered and pointed out that a coil of
lineman's cable lay nearby. They secured one end around Bingham's leg and
then
tied the other to the bridge. His fall lasted 40 feet before the cable
tightened and tore his foot off at the ankle. He miraculously survived
his fall
into the icy water and was rescued by two nearby fishermen. Bingham's
foot was
never located.
AND THE WINNER IS....
Zookeeper Friedrich Riesfeldt ( Paderborn , Germany ) fed his constipated
elephant 22 doses of animal laxative and more than a bushel of berries,
figs
and prunes before the plugged-up pachyderm finally got relief.
Investigators
say ill-fated Friedrich, 46, was attempting to give the ailing elephant
an
olive oil enema when the relieved beast unloaded.
The sheer force of the elephant's unexpected defecation knocked Mr.
Riesfeldt to the ground where he struck his head on a rock as the
elephant
continued to evacuate 200 pounds of dung on top of him. It seems to be
just one of
those freak accidents that proves... '*S--- happens*'
IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPORTANT TO THANK THESE PEOPLE FOR REMOVING THEMSELVES
FROM THE GENE POOl.

Western leaders wearing Winnie's Necklace to Mandela Memorial

Like a pack of braying donkeys,  world leaders will gather in South
Africa preening for the cameras that will send their pictures world-wide
to celebrity watchers.
But phony braying, and crocodile tears notwithstanding, some still
remember the bone-chilling screams of South African blacks burnt alive by
the unspeakable evil of ANC
necklacing....http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/59727
