Peter MacKay vows to hammer us with the police state; I say, “over my dead body.”

 

The idea of bringing the American police state to Canada is one that keeps psychopaths like Peter MacKay big boy dreams at night.

(In this letter, I discounted the possibility of parliament actually surviving long enough before Harper had to prorogue it again; it never occurred to me that MacKay and Harper would piss off the Supreme Court so much that ANY government legislation would be D.O.A.)

Dear Mr. MacKay:

 

An interesting story appeared in today’s National Post: “Peter MacKay insists Conservatives (sic) are not moving Canada toward U.S-style justice.” When a news story quotes a politician, it is important to remind oneself that the politician intends to do the exact opposite of what he is claiming.

 

Buried way down towards the bottom of the story: “MacKay said he also won’t be intimidated or deterred from considering new lawful access provisions despite privacy concerns that ultimately led to the death of previous bills.

 

You can consider lawful access provisions all you want. You’re still not going to get them. As criminality in the senate continues to be exposed on a wider and wider scale every day, and as more scandals emerge, Mr. Harper will continue to resort to his old trick of proroguing parliament (i.e. going back to 24 Sussex and hiding until the thing blows over). That means your bill will die with it. Again and again.

 

And if, by some miracle you do get your warantless wiretapping bill through parliament and the disgraced senate, the Supreme Court will strike it down before it ever goes into effect. And, unfortunately for you, you won’t be able to “reform” the court in time to stop that from happening.

 

Conservatives such as myself are counting down the days until the next election. After your party suffers an apocalypse not seen since 1993, we can take the party back and rebuild it with the true libertarian conservative ideals that our founder, Preston Manning intended (yes, yes, I know you came from the Joe Clark / Brian Mulroney side; they wouldn’t even have done what Harper has done).

 

Canadians will not accept the police state that has incrementally taken over our American friends. Thanks to Edward Snowden, Big Media is now discussing topics once relegated to overnight talk radio shows and shows originating from Austin, Texas.

 

As I told your predecessor and Mr. Toews, if you dare to propose warrantless wiretapping (or lawful access, as you prefer to call it) I want the right as a Canadian citizen to drop by your office or your home and see what is in your computer. I want to record your telephone calls. I want to attach a GPS tracking device underneath your car and see where you go at night. And I want the same right to inspect every police department employee.

 

I assure you sir, you are seriously underestimating the mood of the Canadian people if you think we are going to let you get away with this.

 

Before you consider such legislation, I respectfully suggest you canvass your colleagues in caucus. Make sure none of them have downloaded any videos from the internet. That none of them have ever gone driving around looking for company at night (female or otherwise). And you absolutely want to be certain nobody has ever – or will ever – seek out recreational pharmaceuticals. Because people more enterprising than myself will find out.

 

As I have repeatedly told my M.P., your police state stops at the Niagara River. Canadians are not going to put up with it. I thought we made that clear the last time Mr. Toews tried this. Yet “your” government keeps scheming.

 

In closing, I do support your intention to toughen impaired driving / drugged driving penalties,. I would even go so far as to suggest a name for it: Rahim’s Law. Perhaps on the day it goes into effect, you can hop into an F-18, land in front of the Orangeville court house and hold a photo-op.

Dear Mr. Flaherty

It has come to my attention that you have been inviting suggestion from the Opposition and Canadians regarding means of eliminating your structural deficit without increasing taxes. I thank you for the opportunity to comment.

Spending:

Start by leading by example. Return parliament to its Westminster roots. Eliminate M.P. salaries, return parliament to meeting once per year, after which M.P.s go back to their (your) real jobs. Wind-up the M.P. pension scheme, return all past contributions with interest (based on the Bank of Canada rate, of course) and repudiate all future obligations. Similarly eliminate all Senate obligations. I am aware of nowhere in the British North America Act which states how much taxpayers have to pay these people.

Initiate a constitutional review of all laws, and repeal those which have the effect of encouraging an authoritarian police state. In particular, I would concentrate on laws enforcing the failed “war on drugs.” This would allow Your Government to fire thousands of employees at the R.C.M.P., Correctional Services, the Department of Justice and Canada Border Services Agency.

Pardon all those serving federal sentences for victimless crimes, including the aforementioned “war on drugs.”

Shut down the Communication Security Establishment and any other federal department charged with spying on Canadians. Cease contracting with other countries to do your dirty work.

Comply with the demands of the COMER lawsuit and return the Bank of Canada to its role as an interest-free credit-creation instrument for the Canadian government and people. This does not mean blindly printing money. At least., not for a fiscally disciplined government.

Immediately end all Canadian foreign military adventures (including “training missions” and “exercises”).

Close Canada’s embassy in Israel, recall our ambassador and other diplomatic staff and expel theirs. Refuse to accept their meddling and manipulation of our domestic and foreign policy. Decline to assist in prosecuting any more of their wars. Enshrine in law the expectation that public officers are expected to be loyal to Canada first, second and third.

Cut foreign aid to zero.

Wind down the Canada Pension Plan over a period of decades. Pay obligations to Canadians currently enrolled and current retirees. Expect future generations to plan and invest for their own retirement. As a means of accomplishing this, encourage a truly free stock market by outlawing derivatives, bail-outs (or bail-ins, to use your vernacular) and other government intervention. Prosecute white collar crime tomorrow as enthusiastically as you prosecute simple possession today. Institute strict limits on fractional reserve banking and abandon your goal of replacing 9:1 with unlimited.

I would hesitantly advocate returning the Canadian dollar to a value-based instrument instead of its current status as a debt-based fiat note. However we have seen what has happened to countries which attempted to do this (see Libya). You might compromise, though, by ordering the Mint to stop passing off their steel slugs as money, and return to using nickel (for nickels) and silver for all other coins.

End all Canadian participation in the U.N., the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and expel their officers and staff from Canada.

End state-mandated bilingualism. There is not a single Canadian outside the province of Quebec who speaks French but cannot speak English.

Forbid non-citizens from receiving federal entitlements.

Sell or close down the C.B.C.

Taxes:

Reduce the G.S.T. to zero.

Reduce the income tax rate its original six percent, with the first $50,000 exempt. Aim to eliminate it entirely.

Return to funding the government through excise taxes and duties. Reinstate countervailing duties on goods coming from countries which have no environmental, wage or labour legislation and ban the importation of goods manufactured by prison labour or slaves. This would have the beneficial side-effect of Your Government being able to fire tens of thousands of revenuers.

Repudiate Your Government’s participation in the global warming hoax and outlaw any future “carbon taxes.”

It is truly regrettable that, since taking office in 2006, The Harper Government has increased the public debt by over $150-billion and put “us” on track towards a $1-trillion public debt once Your Government loses control of interest rates.

It is also ironic that the closest thing we ever saw to a Preston Manning Reform Party government was a Liberal government with Paul Martin as Finance Minister and later Prime Minister.

The record of Your Government fills me with regret that Mr. Martin was not able to stay in office. Having voted Conservative in every election up to and including 2008 (I now only vote for independent candidates at every level) I share a certain degree of responsibility.

I initially voted for the newly-amalgamated Conservative Party. I saw candidates such as yourself and Mr. Clement and I was under mistaken impression I would voting for something like the Mike Harris Common Sense Revolution at the federal level. Add to that Stephen “Steve” Harper was being passed off as a right-wing extremist.

I was had. I will not be voting for your party or any “establishment” party again. It will have to be rebuilt from the ground up in the image of Mr. Manning before I will ever vote Conservative. However in the meantime, you might as well do something useful before your well-deserved electoral apocalypse (see Kim Campbell) in less than two years.

When the rebuilding happens, I’ll come back and lend a hand.

Dear Mr. Runciman:

 

It is particularly galling for “your” government to expect Canadians to expect an even greater expansion of the police state when your enforcers can’t even secure a room. Even the vaunted, all-mighty United States Secret Service and every other intelligence agency in the world wasn’t able to prevent a psychopath masquerading as a sign-language interpreter from getting withing feet of world “leaders” at Nelson Mandela’s funeral in South Africa. One would have thought the man’s US$85 fee would have been the first clue.

 

“In the wake of 9/11” has been the excuse for the stripping of civil liberties and even the most basic human rights of formerly-free people worldwide. Air travelers are interrogated, groped and subjected to cancer-causing naked body scanners. In the United States, the gangbangers and child molesters at the T.S.A. have expanded beyond the airports to Amtrak, Greyhound, and even the local city bus. The U.S. government is spending trillions annually on its spy grid and we don’t have a clue what is going on at the C.S.E, C.S.I.S., the R.C.M.P. And god knows how many other alphabet agencies here in Canada.

 

And you expect us to let you pass even more laws? No, sir. .Not just, “no.” Hell, no! Just in the past six months, billions of people worldwide have woken up to big government (I’ve been “awake” for years now).

 

No amount of inept security, false flag attacks or government breaking up its own plots is going to convince people to consent to increase government tyranny.

 

Please do not try and con Canadians with the notion you are trying to “keep us safe.” You are doing nothing of the sort. .Government’s only interest is keeping government safe.

 

 

If the billions of dollars the government of Canada spends on the National Security State were indeed intended for the betterment of Canadians, I would not get one single Viagara ad in my private e-mail, I would not get e-mails purporting to be from U.P.S. informing me of a package delivery gone wrong or a bank or a Nigerian telling me I’ve got a fortune waiting if I only send them all my personal details.

 

All this money spent on spying, yet the R.C.M.P. (let alone an American agency) has yet to shut down a single Crypto-locker scheme.

 

To be honest, I don’t know why the global warming types and associated liberals, socialists and communists are mad at “your” government in the first place. Since 2006, The Harper Regime should have been giving N.D.P.ers nocturnal emissions on a nightly basis. You have run up the national debt by over $150-billion. You have exploded the civil service. You have raised taxes. The police state has never been happier. And you still enable the global warming hoaxers by failing to call them out on their fraud.

 

You want to talk about impersonation? Up until the past election, when I decided I would never vote for an establishment party again, I was certain I was voting for a small-government, starve-the-beast, libertarian platform when I voted Conservative, Alliance and Reform (going back to 1993). As an enthusiastic Mike Harris booster, I thought sending guys like my own (then) M.P. David Tilson, as well as John Baird, Jim Flaherty and Tony Clement to Ottawa would bring the Common Sense Revolution to a national level.

 

Instead of a Preston Manning-inspred New Canada government, we ended with a Bob-Rae-on-steroids government with more Israel-Firsters than the Knesset.

 

If I had known then what I know now, I would have voted for a Paul Martin-led Liberal government. He’s the closest thing we’ve ever had to true conservative government.

 

I am 44 years old. As your god is my witness, I swear I will live long enough to see a constitutional restoration in my country and worldwide. And when that happens, its first action will be to abolish that trough of yours. Its second will be to repudiate Canadians’ purported obligations to your pension.

 

 

 

I am going to make the same plea to you that I have made to many of your fellow trough-dwellers up there in Ottawa. Would you please just leave. I don’t care where you go. Have Peter MacKay round up the as many of the nicest C.R.J.s he can find at Uplands, load one of them up with as many $100 bills as the Bank of Canada can print up. Fill the other ones up with as many politicians as you can find, take off for Switzerland, the Caymans, the City of London, Tel Aviv…anywhere. Just leave and let Canadians who truly care about the future of our country, our children and most importantly our freedom undo everything “your” government has done to Canadians. Don’t forget to take Peter van Loan with you.

 

Just…leave. Please. All of you.

One of the CBC’s thousands of “moderators” ensures nothing offends their website readers’ fragile little minds.

(Maybe when I have the time, I’ll log back in to my account, copy and paste all my rejected comments—ltb)

http://www.icucmoderation.com/

http://viafoura.com/

I’m done with the C.B.C.

I have left literally thousands of comments on hundreds of news stories. I am sick and tired of expecting a fifty – fifty chance of my comments seeing the light of day. I was always diligent about making sure my remarks conformed to your “community guidelines.” I didn’t make slanderous remarks. I didn’t cuss. I stayed on topic. I rarely even used capital letters. Unless of course I was talking about the CBC. In which case, I wrote it as C.B.C.

At first, it was obvious that my comments were being “disabled” for no other reason than they offended the political sensibilities of your censor. And yes, they are censors. Then I looked into Viafoura. And then I.C.U.C. I learned how I.C.U.C., in particular, was in the business of the “management” of their clients’ reputations on-line.

For comments involving mass-shootings, I would ask what medications the shooter might have been on. I would “talk” about S.S.R.I.s. I would refer to the possibility that the shooter may have been using products which are advertised on evening newscasts in the United States. Such comments, or mere references, were always deleted. I guess I.C.U.C. must count pharmaceutical companies amongst their clients.

Comments about Israel? Citizens of Israel? Members of the financial industry? Oh, you bet. Gone. Expressing my disdain for people who behave like Nazis? “Content disabled.”

Complaining about the manipulation of the stock market, or the over-representation of Goldman Sachs alumni in governments around the world were also magnets for “content disabled.”

Using the words “Peter Mansbridge?” Content disabled.

When somebody would respond to a comment making some reference to my wearing a tin-foil hat (isn’t that a violation of your community guidelines right there?) I would point out how many of the things Big Media talks about now were the domain of “conspiracy kooks” only a year ago. Such responses are routinely blocked.

So somebody can use your comments section to call me a tin-foil hat wearer. But I can’t say that maybe it’s time for the CBC to head down to Austin, Texas and interview Alex Jones. Again. Which you did, by the way.

Mentioning that Pamela Wallen and Mike Duffy used to be CBC employees? As did fellow high-flyers Michaelle Jean and Adrienne Clarkson? Zap! You people are such control freaks that I can’t even mention your former colleagues?

So when a story has 500 or 1,000 comments (or more), what is the actual number? And how many of those comments were “disabled” in order to deceive readers into believing something that isn’t true?

Upon further research, I read a Bloomberg News article about Viafoura and how my comments would end up on some laptop computer in any given far-off country. Whether it would be “approved” is at the whim of some college student in Mexico, the Philippines or Israel.

I would not be as upset if every other news outlet operated in the same way. But they don’t. I will concede that the comments section of the Toronto Sun is well suited to their readership. But the fact is the Globe and Mail and National Post have just as many challenges regarding language, libel, bullying, etc, as you do. But they don’t resort to pre-censoring comments. And they still manage to have lively debates and intelligent discourse. As an aside, I used to participate in the Sun’s comments section, but I became confused over whether I was a right-wing lunatic or a left-tard lieberal so I left them.

I’m not going to waste my time on you people any longer. I went into my PCTools setting and set up cbc.ca as a banned website in my house. While perusing Google news, this will prevent any of us from clicking on one of your stories by mistake. We do not have cable, so we’re not funding you. Of course, you still have a direct – albeit diminishing – pipeline into my paycheque. But hopefully that will change soon.

We don’t have cable so you’re not getting my money that way.

When the next round of cuts is announced, you’d better not count on people like me to rally to your support. At this point, the CBC can rot for all I care. If I can’t even leave a comment on your website that questions what medication a dead criminal is on or point out war atrocities in the middle east, you are no better than Fox News.

I have a brain so I don’t believe most of what is reported anyway. And I wasn’t afraid to express such skepticism in your comments section. Every once in a while, such sentiments actually made it past your censors.

I sure am happy Russia Today makes itself available on-line, free of charge. And they have an uncensored comments site.

The question I have to ask as a taxpayer is this: How much money is the C.B.C. spending on censoring its comments section. And how, exactly, do you think that is helping matters any? I mean, it’s not as if such information isn’t readily available elsewhere.

I’ve wasted as much time with you people as I care to. I’m done. I’m out. Good luck on the next round of lay-offs.

Mr. Justin Trudeau, M.P.

House of Commons

Ottawa, Ontario

K1A 0A6

Dear Mr. Trudeau:

As a conservative-minded Canadian and former Conservative voter, I am writing to appeal to you and your party to get your (crap) together before the next election.

Here in Niagara Falls, we have a patriotic duty to our country to make sure our current member of parliament, Rob Nicholson, is not re-elected. He is a proponent of the police state and for that he needs to go. He should have been defeated in 2011. Unfortunately, your party chose to field an ineffective, incompetent candidate.

I would like to share with you a sampling of the intellectual heavyweight your provincial cousins chose to offer us, based on his purportedly self-written profile in the Niagara Falls Review newspaper of June 11, 2014:

Why I’m running/key issues: The focus of Lionel’s (sic) campaign has three elements: jobs, transportation and health care. I believes (sic) that I can bring jobs to Niagara, to reinvigorate and revive Niagara’s failing industrial sector. I am committed to bringing regular GO Transit service to Niagara so that Niagara will be connected to the rest of the province. I believes (sic) that all people of Niagara have a fundamental entitlement to quality accessible health care and that a hospital must be built sooner, rather than later, to address the needs of southern Niagara’s citizens.

—Lionel Tupman, age 26, lawyer

Mr. Tupman came in third place, 17,000 votes behind NDP incumbent Wayne Gates. Voters probably did this rich kid from Niagara-on-the-Lake a favour because on the first day of his campaign, he vowed to sue someone who had created a fake twitter account. If the boy doesn’t understand that dirty tricks and people saying mean things about you go hand-in-hand with politics, then the provincial riding association really screwed up with this one.

If your party expects my vote in the next federal election, you will field a candidate who will serve as a credible, engaging representative of the people. Hopefully somebody high-profile. Sticking us with whatever parasitic lawyer who is able to win the nomination will not cut it with me.

If the Liberal Party isn’t identifying ridings with current Conservative cabinet ministers and making those a high priority, then you are not doing your job as leader. In the case of Niagara Falls, it’s not just a matter of getting a winning candidate. It’s a national emergency. We have a member of parliament and cabinet minister who is an open opponent of the constitution. He advocates unlimited powers for police, supports the U.S. War of Terror, and is accelerating the policy of imprisoning Canadians for victimless offenses.

The only circumstances under which I would vote for your party is if both its leader and its party advocated a platform of a constitutional restoration, and a return to the fiscal sanity that Mr. Martin provided. I often express my regret for not voting (or at least supporting) your party when Paul Martin was leader and finance minister. He was the closest thing our country got to a true conservative leader.

You will also need to repudiate the policy of one-way free trade deals espoused by Messrs. Chretien and Martin. There are only two ways manufacturing will return and thus the depression will end: a) impose countervailing duties on goods manufactured by slaves with no labour, wage or environmental regulations or; b) Canadians must be willing to work for 25 cents per hour, 12 hours per day, seven days per week in factories with suicide nets. If Ontarians thought “b” was practical, Mr. Hudak would have won by a landslide last night.

While I could be persuaded to vote Liberal in the next federal election if that is what it takes to remove my current M.P. from office, if your party were to abandon its policies of gun-grabbing, blind obedience to Israel and implementing “carbon taxes” in the name of propagating the global warming hoax, I would gladly become a member as well.

For now, I am content to accept baby steps. End the “war on drugs” (and I don’t even smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol, by the way), stop supporting the War of Terror, and reign in the police state. That, and cut spending and reduce taxes.

Up until 2004, we had an excellent Member of Parliament here in Niagara Falls: Gary Pilleteri. Mr. Pilleteri was a throwback to the way M.P.s used to be. And should be now. When he wasn’t in Ottawa, he could be found at his winery in Niagara on the Lake. Occasionally, I used to drop by and chat with him in his back yard. If it wasn’t for the fact that the man is pushing 80, I would drop by his winery and plead with him to run again. Did I happen to mention that I am a conservative?

Who is Rob Nicholson? Other than on television or in my mailbox, I have never seen his face. I have never seen him while walking down the street, or riding the city bus, or shopping. And he sure hasn’t invited me to join him in his back yard. For the years I have lived here, I can’t remember him even holding a public event (“town hall meeting” or something along those lines.

He is completely ineffective as a member of parliament. And the fault is partially your parties for consistently failing to offer up a credible candidate.

It is called the House of Commons for a reason: the house of the common people. Not a club for lawyers and accountants. We need more people with real jobs and real life experience in Ottawa. I will never vote for a lawyer or an accountant because they are only there to perpetuate job security for their respective occupations.

Mr. Trudeau, this is our last chance to push back against fascism. As leader of the Liberal Party, you need to put the interests of Canadians ahead of your party if you care about the future of your children.

We can’t afford to fool around in the upcoming election. As the Harper Regime becomes more tyrannical and more fascist, this may be our last chance.
