The Hard Left wants to control how we wipe our butts... what, is this going to be Obama's next executive order?
See? Leftists are nuts, particularly enviro-extremist ones who want to control our lives.
And the ancient Tupolev Tu-95 "Bear" intercontinental nuclear bomber/reconnaisance airship was intercepted by our CF-18 Hornets (also ancient and due to be replaced eventually by new F/A-35 Lightnings) ...on the eve of Barack Hussein Obama's visit to Ottawa. Go ahead... click and read it for yourself. It's a lot more interesting than reading about the likes of Brangelina's fight with Jenny Aniston and, just in, how to get Mrs. Obama's toned arms for yourself... *ZZZ*!
It's a great read... Canada and Russia are pretty much yelling at each other, calling one another liars. Shades of the Cold War... oh, wait... it never really ended... Russia was just playing the same game with us as she has her proxy, Hamas/PLO, play with Israel. Phony ceasefire to lick wounds, heal, regroup, rearm... most folks, including myself (with Russia, not with "Palestine") were fooled!
Wonder who's lying?
Darth Putin of Russia is screwing with us, as I can tell he's screwing with the world, both personally and via proxy, unreported by the Big Media, who is clueless and not the least bit curious to look into what he's doing.
The Putin guy's, in my opinion, a neo-Communist Hitler. He becomes, like Hitler, more narcississtic, megalomaniac and dangerous to the world every day. And he's becoming more totalitarian as well, warning Russians to not demonstrate against his government in light of the terrible recession gripping that neo-Communist country.
It never ceases to cause, admittedly with dread, me to marvel at how the world, particularly the supposedly "free" press thereof, continues to pretend that there's no evil out there, that it's all relative, and that when stuff like the above happens, it's actually the good guys' and the victims' faults. Astonishing, the mentality of the Free World today. What happened? Since the Cold War supposedly ended, something happened to its citizenry. I can tell. People are different today, psychologically, than they were during the Cold War era, and I, too, was like that, until a few years ago. They're oblivious and blissful, believing that all's well and will always be well from now on, no matter what happens in the world (except, of course, that our use of energy will cause the end of the world, a Big Lie, actually, perpetuated by corrupt "Progressive" elites who love money and power). Such an attitude has, unfortunately, ominously, permeated the Big Media of the Free World and the political leadership, which, in America, is now what I suspect to be a proxy of sorts, perhaps a Manchurian Candidate, of the likes of Darth Putin and the rest of the evil Axis Power Group.
Funny how people believe the Big Lie of "anthropogenic global warming" and "catastrophic, extinction-causing climate change" told by stooges of the likes of the evil-dominated and -controlled "United Nations" and super-wealthy Leftist lunatics like George Soros and Maurice Strong (who's in voluntary exile in China and hasn't been in Canada in years, since he was fingered in the UN's Oil-for-Food scam). It's funny that they believe that the sky is falling just because a bunch of corrupt, money-addicted "scientists" signed on to a declaration without having bothered to examine the massive documentation behind it, whereas they deny that there's anything to worry about when the enemy's intercontinental nuclear bombers approach on the eve of the U.S. President's visit and whilst new, mini-holocausts are waged across the world, largely or completely ignored by the uncurious Free Press, who prefers to whine about humiliated Muslim jihadists in Abu Ghraib and waterboarded enemy evildoers in Guantanamo Bay...
It just doesn't feel right... and I'm suspicious about the timing of the U.S. financial-system collapse right in the middle of the election. Could the financial system collapse in America which dominoed across the globe be of anthropogenic design and timing? Of course it's possible, if one thinks about it. Not a "conspiracy theory", but, you know, there certainly are actors out there who would like to cause some kind of frightening catastrophic event that would lead to the election of a neo-Communist President who then brings in a multi-trilliondollar deficit-financed budget of unfettered socialism which will change the fundamentals of America and negatively affect the character of millions of Americans...
Well, before you decide I'm nuts, just listen to the folks I criticize... are you sure they're not nuts, despite the outrageous, unbelievable claims they make, which millions nevertheless believe and submit to, claims which lead to wrenching, devastating policy formulation and implementation?
I continue to contend we're being taken for fools. And it's really easy to fool most of the people when they trust and depend on the old-line Big Media, who's, as an oligopolic institution, submissively, corruptly onside with the Hard-Left fearmongering activists and elites.
Fortunately, however, there's the internet... where we can turn if we suspect we're being lied to by the old-line Big Media and the politicians. Since the internet is (still, anyway) free and uncontrolled-by-the-state, the truth can still be found to combat the lies we're being told by the traditional, now-corrupt Big Media and the elites. So you now know what to do to retake control of your own mind and view of the world, which has been corrupted by the lies which are all too easy to believe because they sound so authorative in the first place.

"We have a desperate population, and it's feeling even more desperate than usual," Dr. Lyle Rossiter told WND. "People are really quite frightened. They're looking for magic, and they think they are going to find it in this man."
"He has a particular gift for rhetorical speech that's inspiring, seductive and inviting," he said. "He's a quite charming person in his manner. People have been looking for someone to rescue them, and Obama has presented himself as the hero of the day."
"He's headed for a very severe fall because the expectations are far in excess of what anyone could possibly provide," he said. "We've reached the point where, not only can the economy not respond to the stimulus, we have an incredible amount of debt. The entire project is going to collapse, and he will be humiliated."
"If you keep trying to do it, you are going to destroy the character of the people," he said. "You may be able to subjugate them and get them into this dependent state, but, ultimately, society collapses because it's conceptually flawed."
"What Obama and the Democrats are doing is a profoundly political move to increase the numbers of voters by getting them on welfare so they will continue to vote Democratic," he said." Their immigration program is geared toward the same end – to provide legalization and benefits for illegal immigrants because they know 70 percent of those people voted Democratic."
Well, duh. As if we need to be told... by an unimpeachable psychiatrist who literally wrote the book on the liberal mind. Of course, there are still those who don't understand, so, hopefully, this information will open their minds and make them look critically at what they've been told over and over and over again is somehow a miracle, magic, etc...

"I'm a very strong supporter of Israel," Clinton said back in February 2000.
On Thursday, as Secretary of State she had yet another about face in the form of angry messages demanding Israel speed up aid to Gaza. Jewish leaders are furious.
"I am very surprised, frankly, at this statement from the United States government and from the secretary of state," said Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News and member of the NYC Jewish Community Relations Council.
"I liked her a lot more as a senator from New York," Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, said. "Now, I wonder as I used to wonder who the real Hillary Clinton is."
Well, Hillary's a "progressive" (that's code for "communist" and all sorts of other bad things, for they all call themselves "progressives" while denying being the other stuff... lyingly).
"I happen to have a lot of family who live in Israel and I feel, personally, when you are dealing with people who are very strong against you, you have to stand up to them," said Tami Davudoff of Kew Gardens.Well, Hillary's standing with the aggressors, the "Palestinian" terrorists, against Israel, the victim and defender of self.
Hillary is therefore an anti-Semite, hell, might as well say she's effectively a neo-Nazi masquerading as something else, because to be anti-Israel is effectively to be anti-Semite, as Israel is the only Jewish nation in the world and she's under attack, not because of anything she did, but because she's Jewish. Why don't "progressives" demand that the Muslims prove their claims against Israel, rather than automatically, unquestioningly believing them just because they're "poor" by their own willing doing, despite all the billions in aid from the world and all the help Israel has always, always, always offered them? How the hell can they remain poor with the world showering them with billions of dollars over the decades and building their infrastructure for free? Where's the proof that Israel is doing anything wrong, that she's doing anything other than fighting the terrorists who attack her every damn day no matter what?
Anti-Israelism is anti-Semitism. Hillary Clinton is an anti-Semite. She's even on record as uttering the hateful slur "F'n Jew bastard". And she's gotten away with it thanks to the anti-Semitic Big Media, who pretend she never said that.

Well, haven't you gotten the feeling yet that there's many, many scientists the world over who dismiss the IPCC's claim that we're making the earth hotter and are bringing about imminent "catastrophic" climate change? Emphasis mine...
Kanya Kusano, Program Director for the Earth Simulator at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science & Technology, compares computer climate modeling used to support the man-made global warming theory to “ancient astrology.”
He states that the IPCC’s “conclusion that from now on atmospheric temperatures are likely to show a continuous, monotonous increase should be perceived as an unprovable hypothesis.”
Shunichi Akasofu, head of the International Arctic Research Center in Alaska, agrees: “IPCC’s theory that atmospheric temperature has risen since 2000 in correspondence with [carbon dioxide increases] is nothing but a hypothesis.”
These crazies keep on getting crazier and crazier. In the olden days they'd have been dismissed as lunatics and crackpots and perhaps commited.
I really, truly am convinced that the whole global warming/climate change thing is a Big Lie. Just watch the Big Liars become more and more cracked and loony as they, frustrated, witness people pretty much ignoring them, including even leftist governments, who obviously know that it's a big pile of B.S.
When lunatics who crave attention sense loss of attention, they become even more loony in an attempt to recapture the attention. This is what the Chicken Little lunatics are doing.
The best thing to do is to ignore these nuts. I don't care if the corrupt, evil UN's "IPCC" claims whatever they want to claim. After all, they're an offspring of the corrupt, evil UN, so how the hell can the rational person believe bizarre, incredible, outlandish claims made by something created by that which is corrupt and evil?
Wajsman, whose world view teeters from the cynical to the outright misanthropic, is positively effusive about Ignatieff. Calling him “the most independent Liberal leader in the last 20 years,” Wajsman believes Ignatieff “can restore the Liberal party to small ‘L’ liberalism, put an end to tribalism and bring a new national vision for the country.”
Well, I don't know about that. I've been very critical about Ignatieff. One problem with Iggy is that he has Warren "Slappy The Clown/Prince Of Darkness" Kinsella as his chief strategist, showing, in his steadfast refusal to fire that hapless nincompoop, his lack of judgement. Iggy also, unfortunately, tends to flipflop for political convenience, destroying his image as a true intellectual, at least as a politician. A true intellectual, after all, doesn't believe according to political convenience, nor does one associate so stubbornly with the clowny likes of Slappy Catmeat Kinsella. It also bears mentioning that Warren Kinsella supported Beryl Wajsman for leader...
Will he win?? He certainly has some high profile backers, including Warren Kinsella, who along with Wasjman are "old time Liberals". If he is in it for the right reasons -- passion to change the country for the better -- he may get a strong following.
And Beryl Wajsman has been critical of the Liberal Party itself. I had previously made a comment (on Exposed Agenda, an old site belonging to my good friend Aizlynne, for whom I used to be a guest poster in my early days as the Canadian Sentinel):
(...) Beryl Wasjman? I like him so far. But I don't understand why he'd like to lead the Liberals under their current constitution and institutional structure. It's a leader-whipped party wherein regular members have no real say.Oh, and in the same comment, I also said about Iggy, in the context of discussing potential leadership contenders, back when the result was Stephane "Do-Over" Dion...
And bring on Egghead Iggy Ignatieff. Where do I start? Well, he's on record as slurring various minority groups, a serious no-no. He supports torture, something the left thinks is wrong for the treatment of bad guys like Al Qaeda fighters. He is unsaleable to folks across the spectrum.
Here's Mr. Wajsman responding to me:
You are quite right. It is not the Liberal party that is interesting nor worth defending. It is he idea of industrial liberalism as the great force for individual expression and opportunity. My admiration for Trudeau stems from the fact that with the Charter he attempted to inculculate in Canadians a respect for their own individual consequence. He made every single one of us sovereign over any demands of the state or any collectivity. He changed Canada from a Parliamentary to a Constitutional democracy.You see, Mr. Wajsman was considering running for the leadership in that contest, but decided not to.
That message is at the heart of a true liberal agenda. We've got to make sure it takes hold in our spirits.
The idea of liberalism was put most succintly by a great "radical" in 1911. He said that the role of liberal government was,“To raise people up from poverty. To reconcile private interests with public rights. To attack monopoly. To reward enterprise, but not with untrammeled privilege and preference. To exalt the individual over ruler or regulation. To expand freedom at home and abroad. This is our liberalism. This is the signature of our society.” That radical was none other than Winston Spencer Churchill who spoke as Minister of Social Welfare in the Liberal Asquith government which he was a part of between his two Tory eras.
We need to get back to those basics.
Well, I don't know... supporting Iggy? I like Mr. Wajsman and, as I've posted some of his stuff, think he's often quite "Wajs" (wise), but I also respect his right to make his own mistakes and learn from them the hard way.
And I seriously, seriously doubt that, under whatever leader, the Liberal Party of Canada will ever change its spots. Not even under Michael Ignatieff. Sorry- I just don't see it. Like, where's even the critically necessary plan for reopening the Liberal Party Constitution to reform it from the grassroots up? Anyone? Hello?
Sorry, but as long as the Party itself remains as it is, regardless of leadership, I wouldn't touch it with someone else's ten foot pole...
"The CBC cannot be insulated from all market realities," said Kory Teneycke, chief spokesman for Prime Minister Stephen Harper. "Nobody likes to see this, but broadcasters have to adapt to lower ad revenues. No one broadcaster is immune from that."ht: National Newswatch
Flashback: CBC Wants Bailout!
Besides, you know, in the Free World, it doesn't make sense to have state broadcasters.
Also besides, we're now in deficit...
Further besides, the CBC sucks.
Hardly anyone watches it.
Leave it up to the marketplace and the consumers to decide which Big Media outlets, if any, get to survive, or whether they'll be replaced by New Media outlets...
From June 2008:
The violence associated with Mexican drug cartels is now spilling over onto the America side of the border in Arizona and Texas, state officials have admitted.
The New York Times reports that Arizona has seen a dramatic spike in drug-related abductions, home invasions, and even men dressed in SWAT gear wielding military-grade weaponry.
A home invasion here last year was carried out by attackers wielding military-style rifles and dressed in uniforms similar to a Phoenix police tactical unit. The discovery of grenades and other military-style weaponry bound for Mexico is becoming more routine, as is hostage-taking and kidnapping for ransom, law enforcement officials said.
The Phoenix police regularly receive reports involving a border-related kidnapping or hostage-taking in a home.
The Maricopa County attorney’s office said such cases rose to 241 last year from 48 in 2004, though investigators are not sure of the true number because they believe many crimes go unreported.
“There are a lot of cops on the payroll of the Vicente Carrillo organization and Guzman wants a stake in that smuggling corridor,” said Tony Payan, a drug trade expert at the University of Texas at El Paso. “Given that their pact has broken down, the gangs are setting out to kill all the people who work for the other side.”
Some 500 police officers and military personnel have been killed in drug violence in the 18 months since Calderon sent out the first of some 25,000 soldiers to fight drug gangs.
The official urged the U.S. Congress to pass a $1.4 billion aid package to help Mexico buy equipment like helicopters and encrypted communication devices to hunt down drug cartels.
Lawmakers have held up the so-called Merida Initiative with calls to attach conditions on how and where the aid is used.
“The Merida Initiative is vital,” the official said. “The hold-ups in Congress are not good. It could be seen we’re letting Mexico down.”
Looks like Congress also let America down...
Kind of a shocker. The insane suddenly go sane. It's a miracle!
SEATTLE — The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit reversed a ruling Wednesday which had upheld as constitutional a Montana commissioner’s determination that a church violated state law by not registering as an “incidental political committee.” Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund filed a lawsuit in June 2004 after the Montana commissioner of political practices began investigating the church upon receiving a complaint from a homosexual activist group because the church spoke in support of the state’s constitutional amendment protecting marriage.
“Churches shouldn’t be penalized for expressing their beliefs. They should never be forced to forfeit their free speech rights just because the government decides to enact unconstitutional laws requiring them to remain silent on social issues,” said ADF Legal Counsel Dale Schowengerdt, who litigated the case with co-counsel Tim Fox of the Helena law firm of Gough, Shanahan, Johnson & Waterman.
“Churches have the right to speak about the moral issues of our time. That is what churches do,” said Fox. “This ruling affirms that churches are free to disagree and to participate in public debate.”
The court ruled on appeal that the political practices law is unconstitutionally vague and that its application in this case violated the church’s First Amendment rights.
Wonder how on earth this happened? I thought the Ninth Circuit Court was hopelessly afflicted with terminal "Progressive" Liberal-Leftist Mental Disorder!

Amid the criticism that has already emerged about President Obama's reported pick for the powerful position of chairman of the National Intelligence Council, there is a yet unmentioned problem that is likely cause even bigger troubles: He had business ties to the bin Laden family after 9/11.
Charles “Chas” Freeman, a former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia, had business connections with the bin Laden family and their Saudi Binladin Group, a multi-billion dollar construction conglomerate founded by the father of Osama bin Laden. As chairman of Projects International, Inc., a company that develops international business deals, Mr. Freeman asserted in an interview with the Associated Press less than a month after September 11 that he was still “discussing proposals with the Bin Laden Group—and that won't change.”
(...)The Journal also noted that Freeman's connections with the bin Laden family went beyond business: Freeman's Middle East Policy Council, a think tank dedicated to Mideast issues, was receiving “tens of thousand of dollars a year from the bin Laden family” at that time. Since the rumors of his appointment broke, Freeman has been criticized because the pro-Saudi MEPC also accepted donations in the millions of dollars from the Saudi royal family.
Freeman's appointment for the top intelligence post, which would task Freeman with creating and occasionally directly presenting President Obama with national intelligence estimates, has also sparked a firestorm among groups supportive of Israel who have accused him of bias. Freeman's MEPC was one of the loudest supporters of the Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy written by Stephen Walt and John Mearshimer, which was criticized by scholars for the paper's factual errors and shoddy scholarship.
I've warned about Obama. I don't trust Obama. I see far, far too much negative stuff... seriously negative stuff that fits together logically into a risky big picture and amasses to serious trepidations about Obama as President.
Each day I learn something new about Obama and his agenda. And it more often than not disturbs me. The direction into which he's leading America is the wrong direction, not only economically/fiscally/socially, but also in terms of U.S. national security interests, a direction which sends the wrong signals, particularly to our mortal enemies, who are always looking for a sign of either strength or weakness, and Obama is telling them that America is weak and willing to cave in to their demands, offering carrots while forgetting the stick. Gotta have a stick, and a big one, 'cause they've got sticks and have indicated they plan to use them!
By the way, Mr. Freeman donated about a thousand bucks to Obama's campaign...
Another scary-extremist crony of Obama... on top of the many, many we already know of... will it ever end? I fear not.

The statement was publicized by California attorney Orly Taitz who, along with her DefendOurFreedom.us Foundation, is working on a series of legal cases seeking to uncover Obama's birth records and other documents that would reveal whether he meets the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.
"As an active-duty officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of president of the United States," wrote Scott Easterling in a "to-whom-it-may-concern" letter.
Obama "has absolutely refused to provide to the American public his original birth certificate, as well as other documents which may prove or disprove his eligibility," Easterling wrote. "In fact, he has fought every attempt made by concerned citizens in their effort to force him to do so."
He doesn't care if he gets court-martialed for demanding proof, for he's sworn an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, and is apparently taking the oath seriously, unlike, obviously, Obama.
Isn't it bizarre that the Big Media won't talk about this? Dammit, but it's juicy stuff. I thought the Big Media liked to go on and on and on about juicy stuff, and it doesn't get much juicier than the possibility that the President of the United States of America is a fraud, an impostor.
"Until Mr. Obama releases a 'vault copy' of his original birth certificate for public review, I will consider him neither my Commander in Chief nor my President, but rather, a usurper to the Office – an impostor," his statement said.
Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff thinks he's got a secret weapon: Warren "Slappy the Clown" Kinsella.
Slappy Kinsella is perhaps most infamous for making fun of an opponent's religious beliefs with a stuffed animal used as a prop on live television... for electoral advantage. Of course, one may argue he's most infamous for other stuff, but the important thing is really that he's Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff's chief political strategist, and that continuing to employ someone like Kinsella isn't exactly a demonstration of intelligence or common sense on the part of a guy who thinks he could one day be Prime Minister (reminds one of Stephane "Do-Over" Dion, doesn't it?). Nevertheless, I hope Iggy-Poo continues to employ that clown, for the sillyman just might turn out to be, not Iggy-Poo's secret weapon against Harper, but actually the other way around!
Slappy Kinsella's also infamous for suing a LOT of people... and for threatening to sue. Guy's a bully who can't handle inconvenient truth or questions about himself or his worldview.
One of his latest antics is to sue (again!) Ezra Levant for asking inconvenient questions (yep, click and read the whole thing about the poor, poor, pitiful Slappy, chief strategist to clueless, absent-minded, utterly-devoid of street-smarts, Liberal Leader Ignatieff) about whatever involvement there may have been on his part with respect to the infamous ADSCAM Liberal scandal which devastated the Liberal party and led to its subsequent worsening-each-time, devastating electoral defeats and current position as being hopelessly lost deep in the dark, scary woods of the proverbial political wilderness.
You can see the lawsuit here. (The original $50,000 lawsuit was filed in September. Last week it was amended to add Adscam, and increased to $5,000,000.)
It's going to fail spectacularly, and hurt the Liberal Party.
It’s just the latest erratic move by Kinsella, who has had an awful month as the Liberal war room boss. From having to issue a groveling apology for his anti-Chinese slur that Chinese restaurants serve cat meat, to his failed attempt to bully TVO into cancelling an on-air guest, it’s been a gong show over there.
Hey, I remember The Gong Show! It was hilarious, if silly and ridiculous as hell, kind of like Mr. Kinsella! Damn, you know, if they brought back The Gong Show, Warren Kinsella could host it, or at least be one of the regular, silly-dummy-ass characters on it.
Hey, Warren, ask not for whom the Gong tolls, for it tolls for thee!
Filing a $5-million lawsuit to try to silence questions about his Adscam involvement probably isn’t Kinsella’s smartest move. I’m not sure why someone who wants to stop people talking about Adscam would create a conversation-starter like a massive lawsuit. And then there’s the prickly matter of Kinsella subjecting himself (and his private documents) to unlimited cross-examination by my lawyer – I mean days or weeks, not the brief appearance he made before Justice John Gomery’s Inquiry.
Oh, my... what a pickle Warren's gotten into! Ditto his boss, the clueless Iggy-Poo!
Most astonishing of all is the fact that the reputedly "smart" Iggy-Poo hasn't fired Slappy, even after all the spectacular poopers he's dropped!
Let the entertainment continue! Don't you just love watching clowns having their silly pants fall down over and over and over again?
We should call Warren Kinsella "Slappy the Clown", for his slapstick antics, for the fact that he likes to launch nuisance SLAPP suits and for his non-stop, knee-slappingly hilariously backfiring attempts at gaining advantage over political opponents.
Well, you know, folks, if you're representative of eligible voters in Canada, surely you realize that if each and every one of you votes Conservative in the next election, the Conservatives are said, at 40% support, to be virtually guaranteed a majority government. And with a majority, they can pass legislation to crack down on fraudulent immigration/refugee claimants and more easily deport fraudsters who get in while hiding their criminality.
So don't complain- just remember to vote Conservative. Unless you do, then we can't do anything, for we require a majority to nudge the soft-on-crime, bleeding-heart, delusional Hard Left Opposition aside to get things done.
If people want things done, and want the right things done, they must put in place a majority Conservative government. They know that.

This guy is:
So is this guy.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Renowned investor George Soros said on Friday the world financial system has effectively disintegrated, adding that there is yet no prospect of a near-term resolution to the crisis.
Soros said the turbulence is actually more severe than during the Great Depression, comparing the current situation to the demise of the Soviet Union.
That nutass Soros is trying to scare the hell out of us with the economy now, saying it's worse than the Great Depression, as if anyone who knows anything about the Great Depression is going to believe it (I believe he does, which makes his statement all the more ludicrous). As if trying to scare us silly with the whole global warming-climate change scam wasn't enough. What'll he come up with next? Show up for a TV interview in drag? Damn, that'd be scary.
Besides, I witnessed, via CNN, the collapse of the USSR. Gimme a break Soros- we're nowhere near the fix they were in- nowhere. Who, other than Hard-Leftists who don't have functioning brains, do you think you're fooling?
What's up with such unbelievable nutcases these days?
As for those who choose to believe such nonsense, then they'll have to believe this too. After all, this guy, former Defense Minister Paul Hellyer, says his evidence that there are extraterrestrial spaceships and aliens is "irrefutable", sounding like the IPCC, which pretty much makes the same claim as to its "evidence" that we're destroying the world each time we use energy and exhale from any orifice.
What to believe?
Remember, the Nazis did it one increasingly worse thing at a time, "progressively", just like the "Progressives" do things today.
The CUPE-Ontario decided to boycott Israeli universities. Read it all.
Oh, isn't that nice? They believe all the Big Lies they were told by anti-Semites, so they discriminate on the basis of the Big Lies. Of course, that's how Leftists/"Progressives" operate!
You see, anti-Israelism is anti-Semitism.
Read also the related post: Liberal Fascist Spotlight: CUPE-Ontario Bigwig Sid Ryan
Why doesn't the CUPE-Ontario boycott "Palestinian" universities? After all, those universities preach hatred, intolerance and incite terrorism against Israel and Jews. Don't the stupid Hard-Left union bosses know this? (Probably!)
Not all CUPE members agree and they say they'll boycott the union in the event of passage of the hateful, prejudicial, Big Lies-based resolution.
I see that a bunch of hateful, prejudiced Arabs confronted the Jewish demonstrators while they protested the anti-Semitic vote. Big surprise.
(...)"CUPE Ontario will become less important in the eyes of mainstream Canada,"(...)
"I think this runs against the grain of Canadian values."
"Jews worldwide have a sense today sadly that people are entering into a black hole of anti-Semitism and the passing of this resolution will only reinforce it."
I see that Sid Ryan is now potentially in trouble with the "Human Rights" Commission for his hateful demand to discriminate against all Israeli academics in Canada, effectively robbing them of their means of making a living. While I'm against those Liberal Fascist kangaroo courts, which run roughshod over peoples' rights and rule regardless of evidence/lack of evidence, it would be priceless to watch what happens when the complaints are to be considered by the HRC apparatchiks. Will they dismiss the complaint, making up some stupid excuse, even though Sid Ryan clearly incited against an identifiable group, inciting to discriminate? This falls directly within the HRC's actual, official, original mandate that in employment, as well as in housing, one can't discriminate on the basis of such things as national origin! Ah, now hold on a moment... now I DO support the HRC jackbooting that bastard Ryan, as it will, for once, be acting within its mandate!
The resolution has even been the subject of a complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal. Three Essex County men are not asking for financial damages, but say they want an apology from Ryan to the Canadian people.
This isn't over.
It's a huge smear on all unions, not just on CUPE-Ontario. It's un-Canadian, what the leadership of CUPE-Ontario did. And hateful. And based on Big Lies and prejudice.
This is one of the oldest hatreds in human history... and it's not being fought by so-called "Progressives" who incessantly, screamingly, spittlingly, non-sincerely claim to be "opposed to hate" and keep on chanting "stop hate" and so on and so forth. Bunch of liars.
Remedial reading for "Progressives": Israel's History and Right to Exist
I'll provide a critical excerpt here, though you must read the whole thing (bookmark the link and print it out if you haven't the time right now).
In effectively launching the 1967 war, the Arabs violated these boundaries, thereby invalidating them as de facto borders. The Israeli conquest, the result of a defensive war, constituted a legitimate redrawing of the armistice lines, pending a final settlement. UNSCR 242, drafted as the roadmap to this settlement, stipulates that Israel should withdraw from these new armistice lines “to secure and recognized boundaries” only as part of a negotiated peace, something which has yet to be achieved. And while the resolution does not define what these boundaries should be, its framers made it clear that they should not be the 1949 lines, (i.e. the Green Line), lines they dismissed as entirely unsuitable for a permanent international border. The deliberate omission of the definite article from UNSCR 242’s withdrawal clause was designed to facilitate the necessary revisions. So, until permanent territorial boundaries are demarcated in the context of a comprehensive peace, Israel has an equal right to be in these lands.And one knows that the "Palestinians" have never tried sincerely to make peace. They reject every effort of Israel and each time Israel tries to make peace with genuine concessions and gestures, the "Palestinians" attack Israel however they can, to kill innocents on purpose. They even reject Israel's unilateral, and wholly unnecessary, withdrawal from Gaza, which is being used as a launching pad for missiles by the "Palestinians", such launching being the precise reason for Israel's operation to take out the aggressors and their war equipment to protect Israel's citizenry therefrom. It's all "Palestine"'s fault, everything bad that happens there! They simply don't want peace, for it's their raison d'etre to destroy Israel, period... and all the hard evidence proves it, like Hamas's constitution, for one thing, and continuing refusal to accept Israel and peace, no matter what!
Clearly, the "international community" is supposed to be condemning the Arabs/Muslims/"Palestinians", not Israel!
Get a clue, brainless fools of the "Progressive" movement!
"Well, his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate," Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., told constituents in Cullman County. "You have to be born in America to be president."
WND has reported on multiple legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."
The governor's office in Hawaii said there is a valid certificate but rejected requests for access and left ambiguous its origin: Does the certificate on file with the Department of Health indicate a Hawaii birth or was it generated after the Obama family registered a Kenyan birth in Hawaii, which the state's procedures allowed at the time?
Debka File reports that Obama has concluded a "secret pact" with the Saudis.
DEBKA-Net-Weekly reveals the terms of the accord US president Barack Obama has secretly forged with Saudi King Abdullah and the ways in which they plan to work together in the Muslim world, the Persian Gulf and the Middle East.
One needs to subscribe to Debka Net Weekly to discover the details.
What is Barack Hussein Obama, himself born a Muslim, and with many perfectly legitimate questions being seriously posed about the constitutionality of his presidency, doing making secret deals with Islamofascistic, terrorism-funding tyrannies?
Note that the Saudis are still funding terrorism.
Saudi intelligence is investing in the new group to create a militia for challenging Hizballah's sole grip on South Lebanon and Iran's inroads on Lebanon. To win recognition and legitimacy, the Jihad Movement for Gaza is trying to seize the war initiative against Israel and show Hizballah up as all talk and no action.
In the last two weeks, operations against UN peacekeepers and Israeli forces and rocket attacks on Galilee have been in the pipeline. UNIFIL has been on a high alert. But, although this information has been in Israel's hands since the last week of January, the authorities refrained from putting Israeli border communities and towns on guard. This is compatible with the policy pursued by defense minister Ehud Barak and his senior adviser Amos Gilead to put all Israel's security eggs in the Egyptian basket - and indirectly in Saudi hands.
Cairo and Riyadh's interests diverge sharply from those of Israel in the areas adjoining its borders – Gaza and Lebanon. Saudi sponsorship of a new terrorist organization in South Lebanon illustrates this conflict of interests.
Looks like Obama's "change" doesn't look like much of a departure from that of Bush the Second's. But at least we knew that Bush was cozy with the House of Saud. Why is Obama being so secretive? See, I said many times that Obama has a hidden agenda!
One can't help but wonder, because of Obama's refusal to prove that he's natural-born American, and because of his secret deal with the Saudis, who are funding a new, Al Qaeda-associated terrorist group...

"Obama is a radical communist, and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it's true," said Keyes, who ran unsuccessfully against Obama for the state's open Senate seat in 2004. "He is going to destroy this country, and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist."Any bets that the Chicago Mob, who runs interference/intimidation for Obama and his puppeteers will call Mr. Keyes what they've been calling a lot of those who dare disagree with Obama... a "racist"?
"We are claiming that a bankrupt government can save a bankrupt banking system," Keyes said. "The fact that we have just elected an individual – who may or may not be qualified – and he presents silly ideas like this and says, 'Let's move forward now,' and we're all acting like the laws of economics have been repealed and we can actually afford to foot the bill with money nobody's got, this is insane.
"It's got to lead to the collapse of our economy," Keys declared, "and it's going to."
Uh-oh... they'll have to think up something different now! Maybe they'll call Keyes a "poopy-head" or something, which isn't any less mature (or lazy-minded) than automatically calling people "racists" just for criticizing the President (as if it's racist to criticize the President... they criticized Bush, didn't they?).
There's a lot more folks than is immediately apparent out there who believe that Obama will ruin America. Such folks are immune to the pomp and circumstance, the dazzling gobbleddygook, the fake Greek architecture and fireworks, etc., and are able to think for themselves. Maybe they're wrong and maybe Obama won't "destroy" America. But I'm pretty sure that when he's finished his fast & furious, radically extreme and stealthy campaign to turn the nation so hard and far to the Left, we won't recognize America anymore.
Once Obama's done his damage, many who loathed Bush the Second will pine for the good old days under his leadership, believe it or not. At least America still looked a lot like America under Bush!
Then ask yourself: Why are there serious consequences for merely being accused of "offending" certain minority groups, but there are virtually no consequences for tormenting fellow students at school?
Why is it that bullies get away with violating other students' human rights on an ongoing basis?
Why doesn't the "Progressive" movement step in and force governments to declare bullying a "hate crime" punishable just like any other "hate crime"?
If the "Progressive" movement did care at all, then bullying would be talked about all day every day. You couldn't open the paper or turn on the news broadcasts without being inundated with stuff about bullying, just as you are inundated today with stuff about Obama, "womens' 'right' to choose (to murder their children)", global warming, homosexuality and poor, vulnerable, peaceful, tolerant, victimized Muslims...
We hear almost nothing about the obvious problem of bullying, particularly in schools.
Why is this? Shouldn't non-people-of-color, straight, ordinary citizens enjoy the same protections as do minorities, homosexuals, Muslims, etc.? Do regular folks' human rights and equality rights not count as much, or at all? Does one have to be "special" to be protected by the state apparatus from evildoers?
To look the other way and ignore bullying in schools isn't "progressive".
To instead tell students that homosexuality and Islam are great for them to get into and how to perform the activities that are part of those ideologies... not "progressive". Because ordinary people are actually being tormented, whereas the GLBTs and Muslims are being exalted, raised to first-class status while everyone else gets bullied and beaten... Thanks a lot, "Progressive" Liberal Leftists! Your so-called "Progressive" movement is utterly useless.
To crack down on bullying is, therefore the right, and conservative thing to do. It's about law and order and equality.
Let's start a massive campaign of public education, with ads, with news reports, with curricula in schools, with legislation, serious sentencing consequences, etc... against bullying! Crack down hard! Hell, why not use the awesome power of the so-called "Human Rights" Commissions to haul bullies before the Star Chambers and make them cry and crap their pants, so terrified at what's going on that they'll never again dare bother anyone?
WTF is wrong with society? WTF is wrong with the state apparatus? Not caring that people, especially students trying to learn, as is their right to do so, are being bullied incessantly? Forget your exclusive, obsessive hand-wringing over isolated, one-time little tiny verbal slights and the "gays" and Muslims. Just protect everyone! Equally!
Not America's. Not Bush's.
Today, however, he believes the murder of innocent people is both contrary to Islam and a strategic error. "Every drop of blood that was shed or is being shed in Afghanistan and Iraq is the responsibility of bin Laden and Zawahiri and their followers," writes Dr Fadl.
The terrorist attacks on September 11 were both immoral and counterproductive, he writes. "Ramming America has become the shortest road to fame and leadership among the Arabs and Muslims. But what good is it if you destroy one of your enemy's buildings, and he destroys one of your countries? What good is it if you kill one of his people, and he kills a thousand of yours?" asks Dr Fadl. "That, in short, is my evaluation of 9/11."
He is equally unsparing about Muslims who move to the West and then take up terrorism. "If they gave you permission to enter their homes and live with them, and if they gave you security for yourself and your money, and if they gave you the opportunity to work or study, or they granted you political asylum," writes Dr Fadl, then it is "not honourable" to "betray them, through killing and destruction".(...)
Dr Fadl was a central figure from the very outset of bin Laden's campaign. He was part of the tight circle which founded al-Qaeda in 1988 in the closing stages of the war against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. By then, Dr Fadl was already the leader of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, an extremist movement which fought the Cairo regime until its defeat in the 1990s.
Dr Fadl fled to Yemen, where he was arrested after September 11 and transferred to Egypt, where he is serving a life sentence. "He has the credibility of someone who has really gone through the whole system," said the diplomat. "Nobody's questioning the fact that he was the mentor of Zawahiri and the ideologue of Egyptian Islamic Jihad."
Listen up, "Progressives"! Straight from the horse's mouth!
It's not the Free World's fault! It's bin Laden/al-Zawahiri's! They attacked us in the first place! We were right to strike back!
So stop feeling guilty, stop hating your own country for standing up for itself and for freedom, democracy and the rule of law!
Priceless story here.

While most Canadian media outlets are slashing jobs and other costs to stay afloat in a sea of bad economic news for the industry, the CBC is once again rattling its tin cup for more handouts from taxpayers.
I don't see why we should care. Even the hockey games can go to another network.
I'd suggest slashing some of the crap that they produce on our dime. There's plenty of it. Get rid of 'em.
For example, don't do any more crap shows about boys visiting ball-waxing parlors! Not on our dime!
Better yet, sell the whole thing off... We need to save a billion here, a billion there. After all, we're in deficit and the debt is a-balloonin' again, 'cause the Far Left threatened to usurp the duly elected government (and do God only knows what!) if it didn't open the spending floodgates...

If ideological antisemitism seeks to mask itself under the banner of anti-racism, legalized antisemitism is even more sophisticated and insidious. Here, antisemitism simultaneously seeks to mask itself under the banner of human rights, to invoke the authority of international law, and to operate under the protective cover of the UN. In a word - and in an inversion of human rights, language and law - the singling-out of Israel and the Jewish people for differential and discriminatory treatment in the international arena is 'legalized'.And the Big Media prefers to go on instead about claimed upsurging in "hate crimes" against Muslims, claims for which we see little evidence, definitely compared to the evidence we see of "hate crimes" against Jews, Judaism and Israel, including public "hate speech" and public incitement to hatred, contempt and violence and genocide. And most of these neo-Nazis are getting away with it, just because they claim that their hatred and defamation is in the name of "human rights", "anti-racism", "anti-apartheid", etc... despite the fact that what they've been told about Israel and Jews, is pretty much a Big Lie designed to whip up opposition, hatred and contempt to Jews across the world, starting with the Jewish state of Israel. While Iran openly spews hatred, contempt, defamation and incitement to murder and genocide and gets away with it, the world is calling Israel the stuff they're supposed to be calling Iran instead! It's surreal!
But one example of legalized antisemitism occurred annually for over 35 years at the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. This influential body consistently began its annual session with Israel being the only country singled-out for country-specific indictment - even before the deliberations started - the whole in breach of the UN's own procedures and principles. In this 'Alice in Wonderland' situation, the conviction and sentence were pronounced even before the hearings commenced. Some 30% of all the resolutions passed at the Commission were indictments of Israel.
After the Commission was replaced in June 2006 by the UN Human Rights Council, the new body proceeded to condemn one member state - Israel - in 80% of its twenty-five country-specific resolutions, while the major human rights violators of our time enjoyed exculpatory immunity. Indeed, five special sessions, two fact-finding missions, and a high level commission of inquiry have been devoted to a single purpose: the singling-out of Israel.This week's ICCA Conference and London Declaration unequivocally condemn this 'legalized' antisemitism, calling out that "Governments and the UN should resolve that never again will the institutions of the international community and the dialogue of nations states be abused to try to establish any legitimacy for antisemitism, including the singling out of Israel for discriminatory treatment in the international arena, and we will never witness - or be party to - another gathering like Durban in 2001." The data unsurprisingly confirm that antisemitic incidents are very much on the rise. Still, the available figures only show half the picture - they demonstrate an increase in this old/new antisemitism by concentrating on the traditional antisemitic paradigm targeting individual Jews and Jewish institutions, while failing to consider the new antisemitic paradigm targeting Israel as the Jew among nations and the fall-out from it for traditional antisemitism. But the rise in traditional antisemitism is bound up with the rise in the new antisemitism, insidiously buoyed by a climate receptive to attacks on Jews because of the attacks on the Jewish state. Indeed, reports illustrate both an upsurge in violence and related antisemitic crimes corresponding with the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War, and the recent 2009 Israel-Hamas war, which delegates to the ICCA Conference characterized as a "pandemic".
I feel like Churchill writing this... I know I'm right, because of what I'm seeing over and over again, yet most folks obviously think I'm imagining it, that I'm a crackpot, though they're the ones who are deluded!
The World is perpetuating a new Big Lie, no doubt. And chief amongst them all are the Islamic World, the United Nations, the "Progressive" movement and most of the Big Media.
There is clearly, indubitably a systematic push to discriminate against Israel. Indeed, anti-Israelism is anti-Semitism, as Mr. Cotler made the case quite well. Further, to say that Zionism is "racism" is nothing more than piss-poor, hairsplitting anti-Semitism.
So many the world throughout are totally ignorant of the facts, of the reality of the situation between Israel-"Palestine". It's astonishing to me how easily people are misinformed and are too mentally lazy to look for the facts on their own. They prefer to let the state apparatus, the Big Media, political correctness, images of anti-Semitic "demonstrations", etc, etc... to tell them what to think, what to believe. Much like the Germans under the Third Reich!
The world has clearly been brainwashed with a New Big Lie against Israel and against the Jews, for Israel, who is innocent of the wrongdoing of which it's accused by those who've been brainwashed into hating her, is the only Jewish-majority and Jewish-in-nature nation on earth, and this, to anti-Semites, is unacceptable, therefore they demand the destruction of Israel.
I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Cotler, obviously.
As for the picture below, circa 1933, a Nazi minion stands outside a Jewish store. The sign implores Germans to "defend themselves" and not to buy from Jews.
Guess what? It's happening again. This time the bigots don't necessarily wear Nazi uniforms (sometimes they wear kaffiyehs, you know, scarves styled in a pattern like that of the silly thing Yasser Arafat used to wear on his head, and sometimes they, for some reason, also wave rainbow-colored flags and wear t-shirts with pink triangles on them... I'll never understand why). But they're just as prejudiced, by others spreading the New Big Lie, with insane hatred as is the brainwashed scumbag in the picture who thinks, just because he's been told, that he's righteous, just and doing the "right thing". Evil manifests in this way sometimes, when people delude themselves into believing that something they ought to recognize as wrong, as evil, as horrendous... is somehow right. This, as far as I can tell, is indicative of insanity!
Worthy reading: How Hitler Won Over the German People (ht: Maz2, in the comments)
In particular, I'd draw attention to the last paragraph at that link, to serve as a warning to the world and to everyone who falls for the New Big Lie:
By this time, August 1939, all sections of the regime, and the masses who had been so jubilant at Hitler's every "success," had ensured that their fate was tied to the decisions of the Führer. So it would remain down to 1945. In the wartime years, as seemingly glorious victory gave way to mounting, inexorable calamity, as defeat on defeat inevitably eroded the charismatic basis of his leadership, and as it became plain that he was leading Germany into the abyss, the fateful bonds with Hitler that had been sealed in the "good years" of the 1930s ensured that there was now no way back. The German people, having supported Hitler's triumphs, were now condemned to suffer the catastrophe into which he had led them.
Will today's world's people who link themselves so strongly, insanely, to the New Big Lie against Israel and Jews, similarly suffer a catastrophe into which today's latter-day Hitlers lead them? Don't these fools realize what evil they're helping perpetuate? Don't they see coming that which they're bringing upon themselves in their cavalier negligence to listen to their consciences, preferring instead to be mentally lazy and listen only to and believe only what the loudest, foulest mouths are incessantly screaming into their ears, never bothering to verify or debunk for themselves what they've been told?
Also a worthy read: Fighting the New Anti-Semitism by Jason Kenney

Last year at our national Holocaust commemoration ceremony, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said, speaking of the Holocaust, that "this genocide was so premeditated and grotesque in design, so monstrous and barbaric in scale and so systematic and efficient in execution that is stands alone in the annals of human evil."
"Unfortunately in some countries," he went on, "hatred of the Jews is still preached from religious pulpits and still proclaimed from political podiums. There are still people who would perpetrate another Holocaust if they could."
Let me tell you some of the things that Canada is doing to respond to this new anti-Semitism. We have recently applied to join the international task force on commemoration, education and research of the Holocaust. In that respect we have conducted a national baseline study of school curricula on Holocaust education. Our Parliament has declared through all-party support a bill for claiming the National Yom Hashoah Holocaust Memorial Day.
We are addressing our own history of officially sanctioned anti-Semitism, the most notorious manifestation of which was Canada's refusal to accept the hundreds of Jewish European refugees aboard the St. Louis as it arrived in Halifax harbour in 1938. In fact, as that boat arrived in Canadian waters, one of my predecessors infamously declared with respect to European Jewish refugees that none was too many for Canada to receive. That is why our government has established a $2.5-million commemorative fund to help educate future generations about the incident and the hatred which underscored it.
(...)recognize anti-Semitism for what it is, a pernicious evil that must be exposed, confronted and repudiated whenever and where-ever it appears, an evil so profound that it is ultimately a threat to us all."
