Tweet

One tweet from somebody not very happy with Stephen Harper.

-Analysis- Expenses audit won’t end questions about Senate’s role: Chris Hall   { -Um, The Auditor General is conducting an audit of Senate expenses- worrying some senators who fear their legitimate expenses may be criticized and questioned. *** >>—-> Opinion >>—-> The Harper government has been trying to bring down the Senate, with its checks and balances that get in the way of what many see as Harper’s attempts to turn Canada into his own private slave state. A tweet this morning (above) is one of many that voice their unhappiness with Harper’s attempts to ‘turn Canada into a colony of China’. It was three of Harper’s Senate appointees who were singled out and kicked out of the Senate in the recent scandals, leading some to wonder if Harper was crafty enough to appoint those three and maybe others in an attempt to sabotage the Senate. This Prime Minister has also gone up against the Supreme Court, and anybody else who would not buckle under to his total control. —djo— }

Central Huron residents told to lock doors for police probe   { I had a nightmare while I was growing up that the Army and National Guard locked down this whole area for some made up reason and went around shooting my friends with impunity- I thought I had awakened in a world occupied by Nazi storm troopers in American Uniforms. So that’s ‘where I’m coming from’ when I say it makes me nervous to hear that any police force wants to lock down whole towns after one person shows up shot to death.  —djo— }

Professional cheerleading ‘should be abolished’   { This opinion comes from former professional basketball player, Mariah Burton Nelson, “Cheerleading implies that women’s proper role is to support men, smile at men and fulfill the sexual fantasies of males,” declared Nelson, who played for Stanford University and in the first women’s pro-basketball league in the U.S. *Um, is this another case of somebody who wants to ‘throw the baby out with the bathwater’? Weren’t the original cheerleaders mostly men? I remember most cheerleaders in high school being ‘popularity addicts’ that I wasn’t particularly impressed by, -but I’ve developed an extreme allergic reaction to anyone who tries to tell me what everybody else should do or how they should think. }

B.C. teachers’ strike: Talks under way at Richmond hotel.   { I wonder if we’ll ever get anything like the truth behind this. Nobody has been able to answer my questions- I saw photos of teachers carrying signs that said they were locked out- but couldn’t find anything to either support or refute that. I should probably spend a little bit of time to dig deeper, but I can’t fly to British Columbia to seek out an talk to anybody out there- and I don’t have a whole day to sit and dig through ‘virtual reams’ of lies, half truths and corporate propaganda to find out what is really happening out there. —djo— }

David Haines beheading: British PM vows to ‘hunt down those responsible’    { Tell him to search his own closet first? }

Controversial natural gas rule changes came after B.C., oil lobby met   { “In January of this year, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers made a presentation to high-ranking officials in British Columbia’s Environment Ministry, outlining changes they wanted to environmental review rules for natural gas projects. – Those changes became law on April 14, but they didn’t stay that way for long.

“An outcry from First Nations organizations forced an about-face from Environment Minister Mary Polak, who rescinded the revisions two days after they were passed by order-in-council. – Internal government documents obtained by The Canadian Press show 25 to 45 new natural gas plants will be needed to meet the government’s hopes for liquefied natural gas and that the industry wanted regulatory changes expedited so they could make investment decisions. – The Environment Ministry says Polak met with “various industry and environmental organizations” to discuss the regulation change, but the documents don’t make a single mention of any meetings other than with the petroleum producers’ association. – The regulatory review carried out on the instructions of Premier Christy Clark continues, but the ministry says no further changes will go ahead without public review and input.”  —djo— }

Abortion rights trump MP’s freedom to vote their conscience, Trudeau says   { Stephen Harper has been described to me as ‘a rabid micro-manager’. I heard somebody ask, ‘Does that give Justin Trudeau the right to become a dictator on the other side of the fence?’ I couldn’t see any fence. And then I remembered Ralph Nader calling members of both the two biggest US Political parties “Republicrats” and I wonder about trends toward the same thing in Canada. —djo— }

-Updated- Shelling in eastern Ukraine challenges ceasefire deal   { And something I heard on Coast to Coast am last week led me to believe that psychics and others who believe they have prophetic abilities learned that sections in the official Christian Bible were heavily edited a long long time ago, but documentation still exists that says ‘Legitimate Prophets’ foresaw Russian troops attacking Scandinavia and then Canada and the U.S. in grabs for natural resources. The person who delivered this news or opinion says that Judaic and Christian officials were involved in cover-up re-writes in order to strengthen their own power within their religions. This guy went as far as to say that the Prophet we know as Jesus was actually Immanuel, who said that a religion based on his teachings would be perverted by power crazy religious clerics and that the same thing would happen about five hundred years later when another True Prophet would be born in what we call the Near East- and evil, manipulating men would pervert that True Prophet’s teachings. Immanuel went on to point out that the Israelites had stolen their land from inhabitants who were there before the Israelites left Egyptian slavery, and that if the two groups did not resolve their conflicts and differences, they would destroy each other. — This was way before there was a Russia or a United States of America — Karmic events were set to be triggered that could see the descendents of the Arabs who would follow the ‘True Prophet Mohamed’ conquer all of Europe, including England, and rule that area for 800 years. ***We may still be able to ameliorate this possibility, if we go back to the original teachings of Immanuel and scrap the revisionist nonsense that was written into the current version of the ‘Christian Bible’ – probably including anything that was added by the non-apostle Paul. *** It gets complicated.*** We’re stumbling around in the darkness of lies that have been hammered into our ‘consciousness’ for two thousand years, or longer. Pray for clarity here, pray the truth gets through to us. Pray for guidance and be ready to change everything you were ever taught to believe. Doesn’t sound easy does it? Want to wake up in chains or worse? Think about this — I do not have a hot line to the Source of all Truth — so you’re going to have to figure things out for yourself, and let me know what you come up with, okay?  —djo— }

‘It’ll take a number of years’: The challenges of destroying ISIS   { Some of my favourite people are conspiracy theorists, or fans of conspiracy theories- But suppose for a minute that they might be right- and ISIS is the product of a C.I.A. training program. -If not the C.I.A., then another ‘intelligence’ operation with a ‘black ops’ budget. They find people who are a little bit over the edge already, and encourage them to become stark raving fanatics, kind of like: wind ’em up and let ’em go- But their wind up toys never know who it was, exactly, that wound them up / encouraged them to let their natural frustration and anger fester and become a solid force to be manipulated by puppet masters ( or idiots who believe they are puppet masters ) Give an angry, brainwashed person a gun, show him how to use it, convince him that he can go to heaven and pick and choose his 72 virgins because he’ll be killing creatures that his understanding of ‘god’ didn’t make, no, the infidels were created by the devil, by false gods… and blah blah blah- and then sit back, tenting your fingers together, smug as all get-out, and see what happens. Al-Qaeda means ‘The List’ – this was the C.I.A.’s list of ‘friendly’ nationalistic / religious partisans who wanted the Russians out of their country and would be happy to take C.I.A. money and guns and training and run around creating havoc –  and then remember everything they learned and use it against the U.S.A. when they invaded their country / territory.  So, if Al-Qaeda were originally C.I.A. assets or puppets who cut their strings and went after the puppet-masters, then went out and trained a whole new crop of wilder and crazier fanatics and called them ISIS or whatever they call themselves, and remember- if you mispronounce a name in their neck of the woods, or desert- that’s an insult- But anyway, the point of this whole silly rant is- if the C.I.A. or some similar group trained these guys or at least trained their trainers, ya’d think they had some kind of fail-safe – like for instance, a shipment of nerve gas bombs programmed to leak and kill the fanatics who were about to use them on innocents- But wait a minute- either these puppeteers are lousy at their ‘craft’ – or they don’t want to take down their golden egg laying gooses / scary Islamic fanatics –  hey- while most of the people in this world are scared out of their minds that they might walk around the corner in Main Street, USA and see a wild eyed fanatic dressed like an Arab with an AK-47 in one hand and a grenade in the other- heck- while Mr and Ms USA are checking under their beds for wild eyed fanatics, they won’t be watching the puppet masters, who are robbing them blind, fitting them with strings and getting ready to play their funeral march.

Unless the PC Party in New Brunswick can buy an election the way G.W. Bush did here in the states, Alward will be looking for a job in a couple weeks.  * & This “CRA” is not the Canada Revenue Agency, which Canadians love to hate as much as we hate the I.R.S. –   but they don’t have the possible ‘out’ of learning that their federal tax agency never was legally adopted by the prerequisite number of states. The I.R.S. only has legal status because the congress passed laws to put Al Capone in Alcatraz for ‘tax evasion’.
