The Sentinel was dumb enough to allow comments. One contributor noted that, had such an ATM robbery happened in Chicago (shurely he jests!), the victim would indeed be dead and the bad guy would have his cash, and thus his next crack fix. A reply to that comment rightly stated that the dead victim would be added to the rolls of likely Democratic voters.
The Sentinel did not identify the perp or the hero. Fortunately, television station WFTV‘s reporting was somewhat more insightful.
No doubt local Orlando media will be entertaining us with dated pictures of Carlos Medina in his high school graduation garb over the next few days.
Your humble correspondent will update you should Medina’s name show up in local obituaries.
Robbing a senior citizen in Florida. What a dumb-ass.
Trump will turn on Canada, warns former Mexican congressman
As Trump doubles down on wall promise, Canada and Mexico must unite, says Agustin Barrios Gomez
By Katharine Starr, Tyler Buist, CBC NewsPosted: Jan 25, 2017 7:10 PM ET
Canada’s state news agency trotted out a Mexican agent of the Council on Foreign Relations to continue its anti-Trump agenda and work what few Canadians still pay attention to corporate fake news into a lather.
The question of “how good” a U.S. president will be for Canada has been a discussion amongst Canadians since time immemorial. The question, frankly, is irrelevant. The job of the U.S. president is to look after the U.S. people. And to the horror of the entrenched establishment, Donald Trump is following through on that simple fact.
Donald Trump is not the president of Mexico. He is not the prime minister of Canada or Britain or even israel (oh, just wait until he makes that last one clear!). Donald Trump was elected to look after the American people and American interests first and foremost.
Obviously, that’s just something the Council on Foreign Relations just cannot handle.
The Mexican C.F.R.’s Agustin Barrios Gomez, pleaded with Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau to take a principled stand against Trump and for the continuation of globalist and “progressive policies.” Gomez also invoked Godwin’s law in comparing Trump to Adolph Hitler. Referring to former British prime minister Neville Chamberlain, Gomez said, “I don’t think appeasement is the way to go.”
In calling for Trudeau to take a “principled stand,” Gomez presupposes, erroneously, that Justin Trudeau is a competent, principled leader. He is not. Justin Trudeau was elected leader of the Liberal Party for no other reason than his name: Trudeau. Trudeau is a self-described feminist. He is a guilt-ridden white social justice warrior (on Canadian taxpayers’ dime, of course). He doesn’t have a clue how to do anything or solve any problems, other than to throw money at it. The Liberal Party could have chosen, among other candidates, Marc Garneau, a former astronaut. Unfortunately, in their infinite wisdom, our Liberal friends went with the pothead. With the luxurious hair.
On the issue of “the wall,” Gomez called it a “horrible symbol of ignorance and said it was “zero likely” Mexico would pay for it. Gomez is wrong. Mexico will pay for it when Trump starts taxing remittances from the United States back to Mexico. Those remittances may even be eliminated when those remittances are brought into U.S. banking regulations and valid, verified social security numbers are collected in order to transmit those funds.
So, yes, one way or another, Mexico will pay for that wall.
Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party was not elected on a wave of left-wing enthusiasm in Canada. The former prime minister, Conservative Stephen Harper, was arrogant, corrupt, and wasteful. Canada’s debt exploded under his reign. Conservative changed their vote to Liberal in 2015 and put the Conservatives in a corner.
One of the candidates running for the Conservative leadership is Kevin O’Leary, who has been compared to Donald Trump. He is very rich (by Canadian standards), brash, blunt, and, oh yes, starred in reality TV shows (Dragon’s Den in Canada and Shark Tank in the U.S.) O’Leary has been vilified since he first mused about running for the leadership. Establishment Conservative politicians want nothing to do with him. He has been ridiculed and dismissed by corporate fake news media (CBC included). In other words, he will be Canada’s next prime minister if the comparisons to Trump are taken to their logical conclusion.
When Agusto Barrois Gomez predicts Trump will “turn on” Canada, he makes a fatal flaw in his logic. Canadians, historically, have a higher standard of living than Americans (confiscatory taxation and stifling bureaucracy notwithstanding). Canadians have not swarmed across the U.S. border by the tens of millions, taken up residence in the U.S., terrorized Americans with gangs, sucked billions of dollars out of the American people by ending up on welfare, had anchor babies who have bankrupted American schools, and basically just demanded free stuff. So the comparison between Mexico and Canada is preposterous.
The only swarms of Canadians seen in the United States are those migrating towards the Walden Galleria, Great Lakes Crossing, Bellis Fair and hundreds of other U.S. shopping malls dotting the picturesque northern border.If you live in suburban Toronto and are destined for the Walden Galleria, don’t worry about directions. Your car knows the way.
Mexico is a corrupt, disease-filled, crime-ridden garbage dump. Neither Canada nor the United States need take any lessons from them. And if Trump’s impressive election victory proved anything, it is that Americans are done being manipulated by the Council on Foreign Relations.
Justin Trudeau, and Canada’s government by extension, have two choices: It can work with the Trump administration and remind it of the important trade relationship between the U.S. and Canada. It can remind Trump that Canada is the number one single largest purchaser of U.S. goods and services. Not Britain. Not Japan. Not China. Canada. It can remind Trump of the damage the U.S. inflicted upon border cities such as Niagara Falls and Buffalo when it imposed a passport requirement upon Canadians. Or…the Trudeau government can go the path of least resistance by demagoguing Trump and his administration, and endearing itself it its loony-left Liberal base as the Canadian dollar continues its collapse and what’s left of Canadian manufacturing – the auto industry chief among it – disappears entirely.
Here at LettersToTheBeast, our money is on option two. But that’s okay. It’s nothing Prime Minister O’Leary can’t fix.

Vancouver in its longest cold snap in over 30 years
We’re at 33 days and counting — but there’s a way to go before the record is broken
By Justin McElroy & David Horemans, CBC NewsPosted: Jan 06, 2017 6:00 AM PT
Get out the hip-waders for this one. The carbonazis are in full-bore panic on Canada’s left coast, seat of the country’s global warming / global taxation grid movement.
Vancouver is Canada’s money center. And, with a mild year-’round climate, it has been typically easy to convince its denizens of the “threat” of global warming. Politicians and their allied media are safe from pontificating on the ravages of global warming while the temperature is well below zero, snow is piled knee-high and homeless people are freezing to death. British Columbia was eager to adopt the “carbon tax.”
This current winter has threatened to kill the golden goose. So CBC, Canada’s state broadcaster, trotted out weather girl Johanna Wagstaffe to explain away the contradiction between claims of warming while the city is frozen solid.
Wagstaffe pointed out instances of cold snaps and frozen ponds in Vancouver’s distant past (i.e., nearly a century ago). Just as the carbon nazis point to evidence of global warming locked up in the Arctic, the North Pole, the Antarctic and other places we can’t visit, Johanna cited a period of time where none of us was alive and therefore couldn’t challenge from personal experience.
Wagstaffe used the classic global warming move to back her argument: citing temperature data from the local airport and downtown.
Uh, riiighht. So, the claims of global warming (as if a longer growing season and not freezing to death is somehow a problem), is based on data obtained by thermometers placed smack-dab in the middle of hundreds of acres of blazing hot pavement, jet blasts (in the case of airports), air conditioner outflows and steam grates (in the case of urban areas)?
Okay, Johanna. What do the historic temperature data show at, say, Stanley Park? Kitsilano Beach? Burnaby Mountain? Boundary Bay?
Amusingly, Environment Canada, the Canadian government’s meteorological service, defines a cold winter day in Vancouver as anything under five degrees celsius (41 F).
The typist admits YVR (the Vancouver Airport) is the warmest place in Vancouver. And with all that manipulation, it was still registering record lows. For over a month.
Wagstaffe also provided us with this little gem: the government only uses numbers from less than forty years ago in compiling its data in favor of global warming.
That sounds familiar, some how…where have we heard that before…oh, yes…
Michael Mann, of course, works for Pennsylvania State University, who know a thing or two about hiding things. Just ask Jerry Sandusky. Oh, wait…
The government is only using numbers from 1981, when urban Vancouver (along with urban-everywhere-else) exploded. Land that was rural farmland is now housing tracts and condos. With all that pavement reflecting sunlight, all those air conditioning exhausts, all those furnaces, of course it’s going to be warmer!
Thanks for the tip, Johanna.
Kudos to Mrs. Wagstaffe for using “global warming” and not the officially-rebranded “climate change.” No doubt she, and typists McElroy and Horeman (this is the CBC after all, so of course they need THREE staff reporters) have already received their letters of reprimand from Toronto.
Naturally, comments were disabled. While it could be assumed they were preaching to the choir when it comes to the warmistas and other enviro-nuts, there is no way they were about to allow the “deniers” to point out the obvious falsehoods.
If there was ever a message to the corporate dinosaur (i.e. “bullshit”) media, President-Elect Donald J. Trump delivered it loud and clear on November 21, 2016.
He doesn’t need corporate media to analyze, filter, or explain, or massage his message. He doesn’t need them to tell us what he really means. Whenever he has something to say, he can say it directly to us. And if YouTube decides to play games with the President’s account as it has with other accounts that have fallen afoul of its policies, he can simply publish the video on WhiteHouse.gov.
Do you get it, Big Media? You’re done! All the lies throughout the primaries and the general election campaign. All the covering up for Missus Clinton. Eight years of justifying, running interference and apologizing for Barack Hussein Obama (B.O.). All the Clinton Foundation donors putting on the pretense of objectivity and telling us how horrible Trump was because he said, “Pussy.” All the “most unqualified candidate” critiques.
Jeff Bezos, Carlos Slim, Warren Buffett, Sheldon Adelson, Rupert Murdoch, Haim Saban, David and Charles Koch, David Rockefeller, Evelyn de Rothschilds (and the rest of the Satanic Rockefeller and Rothschilds broods), George Soros, Bill Gates and the other billionaire (and trillionaires in the case of the Rockefellers and Rothschilds) magnates don’t have nearly enough money to keep this scam going any longer. And the corporate owners? Time-Warner, General Electric, Disney, etc? They all have to answer to their shareholders. They will have no choice but to pull the plug. So all those presstitutes and whorespondents out there who were shilling for Hillary…enjoy your unemployment checks, folks.
And if Big Media and its neo-con allies from the left and the right conclude that – the Ron Paul treatment clearly not having worked – the only option left is the Robert F. Kennedy / John F. Kennedy treatment: don’t even fkng think about it. Not for a nano-second.
You will unleash the wrath of two-hundred armed Americans. And if you think the military will defend you…seriously? You think your military is going to take orders from the same people who tried to steal the election in the first place, sent out the George Soros rent-a-mobs and attacked police workers in the first place? No. The rank-and-file military will do one of two things: Shoot the officers who give the unconstitutional orders; or join the American people. Or both. Hell, the police workers may even be persuaded to put down their radar guns, tie up their cash-and-drug-sniffing performing dogs and join the American people. Hey, cops, just be careful not so shoot those dogs, okay? They’re one of you.
During a rally in Florida, candidate Trump told his audience he would be angry with them if they didn’t vote for him. One can only hope Mr. Trump’s anger will turn into an uncontrollable rage when he finds out to what extent the United States government has been lying, deceiving and victimizing the American people (and the world) since November 22, 1963. Here’s hoping Mr. Trump learns who killed President Kennedy, who attacked the U.S.S. Liberty (and who perpetuated the cover-up), who concocted the babies-and-incubators tale, who did 9/11, who came up with the weapons of mass destruction hoax, who runs al-qaeda, who Abu-Bakr al-baghdadi really is and who he really works for (when he is between deaths, of course), what happened to USAma bin-laden and who really died at that villa in Pakistan, what happened at Benghazi and who started the civil wars in Libya and Syria, who planned and perpetrated all those mass-shootings during Obama’s time in office, and most importantly, the extent of the government of israel’s usurpation of the United States government and American educational, cultural and media institutions.
President Trump will be angry all right. Let’s hope he does something about it.
NOVEMBER 22, 1963
In the interest of disclosure, your humble correspondent at LettersToThebeast.com is a Canadian. Married to an American. Sadly, he was not among the estimated-three-million illegal alien and other non-citizen voters in this past election (all of whom, presumably, voted for Hillary Clinton and other down-ballot Democrats). However, he looks forward to voting for President Trump’s re-election in 2020. Provided he does a good job, of course.
By the way, that “confidentiality agreement” will likely be a moot point when you’re dead.
Canadian citizens. Colorado. I guess they couldn’t find any actors for a low-rent video in the Rocky Mountain state and now they have to import them from Canada. I’m sure all of the immigration formalities have been taken care of.

I wonder what they have planned this time. Something to draw Canada back into The War of Terror? Something so unspeakable, so unimaginable, so horrible that it is guaranteed to make every last Canadian lust for blood?
On October 10, 1990, a 15-year-old girl, then identified only as “Nayirah,” gave tearful testimony before the U.S. Congress She gave tearful testimony about how, during the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait, she had witnessed Iraqi soldiers storming the maternity ward at the hospital in which she claimed to be a volunteer. According to her tale, the soldiers removed babies from the incubators and left them on the “cold floor” (this is Kuwait, not Canada, keep in mind) to die. The Iraqi soldiers then supposedly removed the incubators. Presumably, taking them back to Iraq. It was a performance worthy of an Academy Award.
15-year-old war criminal Nayirah al-Sabah gives testimony before the U.S. Congress on October 10, 1990 about purported brutality by Iraqi troops, including killings of babies and theft of incubators from Kuwaiti hospitals.
The tale took on a life of its own. It was repeated…
The city is trying to get on top of an ongoing rat problem in the community.
“We’re looking at each case that we have. We’re getting public health involved as far as distributing literature,” said city clerk Dean Iorfida.
“We’re baiting sewers. If there is a property nearby that may be suspect, we are inspecting those.”
Iorfida said the city has been doing a lot of research about the issue this summer, which is not necessarily the fault of anybody.
“(It was a) warmer winter, which meant that the rats were able to populate — they were able to breed, so there’s more of them,” he said. “It’s not necessarily your neighbour down the street causing the rats.”
Mayor Jim Diodati said it’s a region-wide issue, with a seemingly different animal problem each year.
“One year it might be a certain kind of moth, and right now it’s rats. It’s around the region, it’s not unique to us.”
Iorfida said staff hope to come back with a protocol this fall.
“What we’ve wanted to do is try to engage experts — to find the root problem as far as why they’re there,” he said.
Iorfida said sometimes rats are present in an area because their habitat was disrupted by construction, causing rats to move to a different location.
Yeah, that’s the problem with rats. No matter how hard we try, they just keep moving on and we can’t quite exterminate them.
After multiple break-ins to his home, one homeowner decided to upgrade with a motion sensor system. This system lets him know if someone is moving around outside his house. Sometimes, it’s the only warning we get. In this case, it was all the warning he needed.
According to FOX 29 San Antonio, a homeowner detected a possible intruder trying to break into his storage shed outside. He got his gun and went out to investigate. Sure enough, there was an intruder. Fearing for his life and his property, the homeowner shot the suspect multiple times in his legs. Immobilized, the suspect was held at gunpoint until police arrived.
The suspect was taken by police to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries. His status is unknown at this time but once he recovers, he will likely be charged for his attempted burglary.
Many areas around San Antonio have been rife with rampant property damage and property theft. Thugs are getting bolder. And while San Antonio police are far and above their peers in terms of law enforcement, they can only arrive so quickly.
Taking someone else’s property isn’t a right. People tend to forget that in this day and age when so many people espouse “you owe me this” mentality.
I am writing to first congratulate your party on your provincial colleagues’ win in Alberta last month. I am also writing to tell you that, as a conservative, I will be taking a huge chance and voting for your party federally in the next general election. Clearly the good people of Alberta feel as I do.
I am hopeful that your party can find a candidate here in Niagara Falls that can pull off a win as impressive as Wayne Gates did in the past provincial general election and by-election.
Yours was the only party who opposed the “anti-terrorism” legislation, bill C-51. And you, personally, were the only politician in the country who had the courage to point out certain questions with regards to the purported death of USAma bin-Laden.
While I realize an NDP government would have certain loyalties and agendas to implement, I would ask that a Mulcair administration:
End Canadian participation in the U.S. War of Terror and “war on drugs.”
Repeal all Harper regime legislation which seeks to implement a police state
Restore constitutional freedoms
End unconditional support for the government of israel, stop all foreign aid to that government and cease enabling its war crimes
introduce legislation to elect senators in the long term. And in the short term, do not appoint any senators under the age of 70.
Pardon all Canadians convicted of victimless (i.e. drug possession) crimes, and release those currently caged.
Repeal Canada – U.S. – “border security” arrangements which seek to allow U.S. Police agents to operate and be armed in our country.
Eliminate the parliamentary “pension plan” for current members of parliament and investigate repudiating past obligations.
Order the RCMP to open an impartial investigation into criminal code offenses and War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity offenses committed by members of the Harper regime and appoint a special prosecutor.
To be clear, I oppose many of the policies of the NDP. As a resident of Ontario throughout the Bob Rae government of the 1990s, you can understand why. I abhor big government, even bigger taxation, a cradle-to-grave nanny-state and gun-grabbing. I am under no illusion that you and I will see eye-to-eye on those matters. However, even Bob Rae surprised us. Unfortunately, it was too late by then.
I am certain, however, that if you want to implement your socialist agenda, you have to give Canadians the tools make the money in order to pay the taxes to do so. First and foremost, we need the banksters thrown off of parliament hill. We need the Bank of Canada – if not abolished – to at least work for Canadians. We can accomplish that by ordering the Bank to return to its original purpose of issuing credit to the government of Canada at zero interest. And issuing our public currency at no cost. As it stands now, every “dollar” issued by the Bank of Canada is a loan at interest.
We can also agree that paying interest on debt is a waste of money that could better be used for good of Canadians. Paul Martin had us on the road to paying off our debt. Our country needs to be debt-free while it is still mathematically possible. Canadians need to understand that banks thrive on debt – both consumer and public. Nothing will bring the banksters to heel quite like becoming debt-free. Just make sure you are wearing your Kevlar underpants because the Rothschilds and the “federal” “reserve” won’t be happy with you (see Iraq, Libya, Iran and Syria for examples of their displeasure).
We need a government that will repudiate past governments’ one-way trade deals, particularly with China and Mexico. Allowing corporations to move their factories to third-world countries with no environmental, labour or wage legislation and then ship their goods back here tariff-free makes absolutely no sense. It is a simple matter to re-instate countervailing duties. Governments – both Conservative and Liberal – had such policies in place for over a century prior to NAFTA. If the Trans-Pacific Partnership is implemented in Canada by the Harper regime, I would expect your government to repudiate and repeal it, in its entirety.
If your future government is willing to restore our constitutional freedoms and do what is necessary to bring good-paying manufacturing jobs back to Canada, even if it means displeasing Wall Street, and if your government does not succumb to the temptation of going overboard with socialism, I believe you can count on the support of millions of conservative Canadians.
Canadians have never opposed paying a reasonable level of taxation. However, we expect something in return. We want good roads, good schools, hospitals, fire departments, police as servants of the people, our neighbours taken care of in times of need. On the other hand, using our hard-earned tax money to fund a state spy grid, government corruption, Wall Street, the City of London, foreign aid to third-world despots, sending our military around the world to make the world safe for U.S. Dollar hegemony, and funding israeli government war crimes are NOT a wise use of our money. Or the lives of our young people, for that matter.
I am a conservative. And I am a union member. And I am willing to give your party a chance. This once.
In closing, should you be chosen by the people of Canada to be Prime Minister this Fall, I would expect you to lay down the law with your future caucus: If any member is found to be working for a foreign influence (i.e. a foreign government – even israel -, a globalist organization such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission or Bilderberg, or a bank or corporation) he or she will be expelled from caucus and your party. Mr. Mulcair, Libby Davies was right. And you were wrong.
P.S.: Please, sir. Don’t stab us in the back like Obama did to his supporters.
