Before we get down to business, I’m pleased to say I’m using a new screen capture utility called “Greenshot.” It is user-supported public domain supported software that comes highly rated by PC World Magazine. It is exceptionally easy to use. Simply press the “Print Screen” (or equivalent) button, drag the cursor around the area you want to capture, and let go. That’s all there is to it. This is a unpaid. unsolicited testimonial. It is much cleaner, easier and neater than my clumsy cellphone screen captures. And yes, I will make a modest donation in appreciation for Greenshot‘s efforts.
Kevin O’Leary has been called the Canadian Donald Trump (although I think The Donald has more money than Kevin. And Donald has more hair. At least in public). O’Leary has been musing about running for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. More recently, he has also been musing about running for the Liberal leadership. The latter is a more curious choice as it is current occupied by Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister.
For the umteenth time, I am starting off this post by pointing out the blatant partisan censorship on the part of CBC and its ICUC “moderators.” But repeating the charge doesn’t change the offensive nature of their conduct. In one case, merely posting, “Yes, please!” in reply to a comment saying, “No thanks” was “disabled.”
A subsequent comment pointing out the censorship of my “Yes, please!” which also pointed out this humble blog is the number two link on Google (just under CBC itself) when searching “CBC content disabled” was similarly killed. But thank you, anyway, to everyone who has typed in that particular search term and landed on LettersToTheBeast.
This is by no means a professional undertaking. I am a working-class stiff. I prefer to remain anonymous so I don’t end up in prison for thinking bad thoughts like Arthur Topham.
All right. Let’s get to work…
Kevin O’Leary vows to be a ‘nightmare for politicians’ on economic policy
Possible Conservative leadership contender warns Liberals he plans to ‘tear that budget to pieces’

And speaking of unpaid, unsolicited advertising, I have recently started adding material from the on-line Cafe Press store on Michael Rivero’s http://www.WhatReallyHappened.com. These are not just bumper stickers. They come in the form of t-shirts, ball caps, magnets, yard signs, tote bags and even teddy bears. The teddy bear wearing the “I (HATE) D.C. shirt is my personal favourite. Why not click on the image, pick out your favourite slogan and let Mike make a couple of Federal Reservre Accounting Unit Dollars along the way? And maybe drop a couple of dollars iinto Mike’s PayPal account, too?
As for the ad WordPress inserts at the bottom of this post, I am too cheap to pay the extra hundred bucks or so per year for an ad-free site. Please click on the WRH “ad” I have created. Seriously, you’ll end up doing a lot more good. Thank you.
CBC amd ICUC continue to scrub any mention from their comment sections that Heir Hillary may have some, ahem, legal challenges ahead of her. They are also hostile to any historical reference to a president, or presidential candidate, not previously anointed by israel and the colonial establishment.
The usual CBC / ICUC censorship going on here when it comes to Hitlery. Complimenting her orange outfit, which she is quite fond of wearing (get used to it, honey!) and accurately quoting her infamous “We came, we saw, he died! Ha! Ha! Ha!” were killed before they lived.
As usual, CBC and its censors at ICUC gave free reign to commenters who ridiculed the “conspiracy theorists.” Facts and arguments responding to those comments were deleted, despite being fully within CBC’s “community guidelines.”
While I was annoyed in the past with such censorship, I now post my comments with the expectation they will be killed. For that reason, I am now making a point of quoting the comment I am replying to within my own comment so its context is clear when I post it on LettersToTheBeast.com.
Former secretary of state Madeleine Albright introduced Hillary Clinton at an event in New Hampshire on Saturday, telling the crowd and voters in general: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
But…never it let it be said ICUC’s censors don’t have a sense of humour:
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.
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.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s false flag operation against its own website continues unabated as comments are left awaiting “moderation” for hours. And many comments simply drop out of the queue and are automatically killed after the 24-hour commenting window closes.
You’d think ICUC management – starting with Keith BIlous – and its legions of twits around the world censoring free speech would be smart enough to realize they are cutting their own throats.
CBC and its censors are particularly hostile towards comments which remind viewers that three of the most prominent “Muslim” terrorists used to be jews.
Whether it’s because the Clinton Foundation is a paying client of ICUC’s “reputation management” service, or because of the political sympathies of the individual censors, or a combination of both, any negative mention of the Clintons will be blocked from CBC.ca. Even factually quoting Hillary’s infamous, “We came, we saw, he died! Ha! Ha! Ha.”
CBC and ICUC are always quick to kill comments which, even when generalizing, depict politicians as liars, criminals and psychopaths.
But…but…but..THEY ARE liars, criminals and psychopaths!
Commenters had to endure CBC’s new “moderation” policy which holds comments in queue for hours, lest the Proles say something unfortunate. Despite these efforts, my comment still earned three likes before the censors came back and killed it.
As an aside, note the comment above in reference to the Oregon stand-off:” Between Patriots and a psychopathic, criminal u.s. government, I’ll side with the Patriots in a heartbeat. ”
Not only is it remarkable that this one got past the censors, but it garnered six likes and, most astonishingly, didn’t generate any hateful replies. The only critical reply was some cop-sucker who said, “Patriots, the last refuge of the scoundrel.” In fact, most of the comments regarding Oregon are overwhelmingly in favour of the militiamen.
Yet the CBC and the other bullshit media are too stupid – or at least wilfully ignorant – to understand this. The internet audience is not a bunch of loony, leftist government-lovers. We have access to other means of information and we know when we are being lied to and manipulated.
In 2003, many of us were old enough to remember how the media who told us about Saddam’s Nukular Bombs also told us about Iraqi soldiers stealing incubators. In 2012, as media was abuzz with news about Bashar Assad using chemical weapons against his own Alawite supporters, right in front of U.N. inispectors on the very day of their visit, we remembered tales about Weapons of Mass Destruction. And now, more than half of our American friends reject the ridiculous and implausible conspiracy theory which suggests 19 brown guys living in caves caused a complete stand-down of the United States (and Canadian) military, managed to take over four passenger air-liners with box cutters, and – in three cases – fly them into their intended targets with perfect precision, despite havinig little flight training and absolutely no experience.
The lies are just getting more and more absurd and insulting. But, again, the governments and its accomplice bullshit media who put them out are either too stupid to understand this. Or they just don’t care.
Remember this the next time they put out a story (and “story” is exactly what it is) about the global warming hoax. Governments and the Rothschilds banks who run them need that money.
