Trudeau set to reveal details of anti-ISIS mission
Ministers of National Defence, Global Affairs and International Development to attend

It was a bonanza for Keith Bilous’s CBC News censors as the clamp down on free speech continues. Comments that criticized CBC, reminded readers and viewers about babies, incubators and weapons of mass destruction were killed before they lived. Invitations for fellow readers to simply google “John Mc Cain and ISIS” were similarly “disabled.”
The comments that I would have expected to see from other like-minded readers were nowhere to be found.
McCain: Russian airstrikes target CIA-backed rebels
Submitted to CBC Feedback, February 11, 2016
This is a copy of an e-mail I sent to Mrs. Joly regarding CBC commenting censorship having gone into overdrive. I’ll make it so simple that even you people can understand it: I know you’re full of it. Millions of Canadians know you’re full of it. And clamping down on the comments won’t make a difference. See my “disabled” comments on my own website, http://www.LettersToTheBeast.com. You’ve given me quite a collection this week.
You know you’re just making fools of yourself, right?
I like how my comment last week reminding viewers / readers that CBC told us about babies and incubators 25 years ago, and Saddam’s Nukular Bombs 14 years ago. And that fairy tales about “ISIS” ought to be taken in the same light. I also like how your censors at ICUC are also clamping down on any mention of googling John McCain and ISIS.
What a nice picture.
So go ahead. Eliminate the comments section. Admit you’re bullshitting us. Not sure how Keith Bilous is going to pay for his Tesla. But go ahead and do it anyway. That’s one less wasteful thing taxpayers will have to fund.
Dear Mrs. Joly:
Please find attached a letter I wrote (via paper snail mail) to Peter Mansbridge, CBC’s “chief correspondent” and host of their show, “The National.” I wrote this letter on December 31, 2015.
To put it bluntly, I am sick and tired of being constantly lied to and propagandized. The letter makes reference to the censorship in the comments sections of CBC.ca. Since then, that level of censorship has become even more draconian. My own website, http://www.LettersToTheBeast.com, has examples of comments CBC has removed for no reason other than they conflict with a political or corporate agenda. If this were CTV, the Toronto Globe and Mail, the National Post or any other private media empire, I would not care. Newsrooms are closing around the world and jobs are being shed by the thousands as people cease paying to be b.s.’d. But in the case of the CBC, it’s ours. We own it. When they are deceiving us, propagandizing us and outright lying to us, I have every right as a Canadian citizen and a Canadian taxpayer to complain.
As of just this past week, the censorship on CBC.ca has gone into overdrive. Almost all my posts have been “disabled.” And posts from other commenters which regular readers would expect to call out the crap are missing.
I’ll keep this simple: when a simple google search “John McCain ISIS” turns up literally thousands of copies of pictures of U.S. Senator John McCain meeting with “Abu Bakhr al-Baghdadi” (aka Simon Elliot), and other members of “ISIS,” and when the CBC itself has reported that a CSIS agent, Mohammed al-Rashad, was caught smuggling teenage British girls into Syria to “fight” for ISIS, and when Mr. al-Rashad’s “payment” was to be Canadian citizenship awarded by the former Foreign Minister, and when the aforementioned “Mr. al-Baghdadi” – prior to his most recent death – died on April 28, 2015 in israel, attended to by israeli doctors, as reported by that bastion of whacko conspiracy theories, the Jerusalem Post…I could go on with the, ahem, contradictions. And recent media reports have suggested that Mr. Elliot here has come back to life for the third time and is living in northern Iraq. I mean, come on, seriously?
Of course, the previous Harper Regime was the same regime which gave two unknown israeli Mossad agents instant Canadian citizenship after carrying out the murder of
Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai. I can only imagine what other crimes were committed over the past decade purportedly in our name. Mind you, when you have a foreign minister who sends the matriarch of a known drug dealing family down to Miami to be “our” consul general, it’s not as if we ought to have the highest expectations of legality and morality in the first place. And this is the guy who made a career out of putting people in prison for victimless crimes.
When the corporate media (presstitutes and whorespondents, to use the terminology of former frequent CBC guest Gerald Celente) are busy trying to tell me stories about ISIS and terrorists and we (as in our children – ours, not yours, mind you) need to go over and kill them, I need only be reminded that these are the same people who told me about babies and incubators 25 years ago, and Saddam’s Nukular Bombs over a decade ago.
To put it succinctly: We know you’re lying, CBC.
I do want to close by telling how much I admire your colleague, Harjit Sajjan, the defense minister. And I’m as conservative as they come (conservative, not fascist; there is a big difference). I used to live at Marine and Fraser 14 years ago. And if I still did, I would have voted for Mr. Sajjan. And I’ve never voted Liberal in my life. Millions of Canadians such as myself live in hope that Mr. Sajjan has come to the same conclusion that we have: the war of terror is a farce, a fraud and a hoax and so is “ISIS.”
The messages I want taken away from this letter are these: First, stop funding the CBC’s lies; and stop Canada’s participation in the u.s. and israeli War of Terror. And get on with it and put a stop to the war on drugs. I never even touch the stuff and I can see how hypocritical and destructive it has become. Nicholson would take some poor fool from Little Burgundy or Jane and Finch or Surrey and lock him up and throw away the key. Meanwhile, when Patrick Brazeau or Rahim Jaffer inadvertently wind up in court, they need only show the judge their “Kiss My Ass” card and walk out the door with a big grin on their respective faces.
Besides yourself, Mrs. Joly, this letter is sent to Messrs. Sajjan and Trudeau, as well as the disgraced former Foreign Minister and M.P. for Niagara Falls Rob Nicholson, who belongs in The Hague along with the rest of the former Harper War Crime Regime. I didn’t vote for the Liberal Party. In fact I voted for the NDP for the first time in my life because theirs was the only leader who was promising fiscal sanity in Ottawa. And in Niagara Falls, Ontario, they happened to have had the best local candidate running. I’m sorry she didn’t win and that the money up in Niagara-On-The-Lake defeated the good people of Niagara Falls and Fort Erie ONCE AGAIN. Having said that, if your government turns on your Liberal supporters the way Barack Hussein Obama stabbed his supporters in the back by carrying on the neocon agenda, you are going to have tens of millions of pissed off Canadians to deal with.
I think you know what John F. Kennedy said about peaceful revolution having been made impossible. We’re almost there. Trust me.
This letter will be posted (when I have time) on LettersToTheBeast.com.
CBC, Peter Mansbridge: Cut the crap, Tell the truth or shut up.
