Is anybody else getting tired of...

This seemingly endless, manufactured Fiberal outrage?

As Joël-Denis Bellavance reported in La Presse on Saturday, documents obtained from Canada’s Foreign Affairs Department show that the Liberal government was warned in 2003, 2004 and 2005 that torture was an ongoing practice in Afghan prisons.

Yet Paul Martin nonetheless signed a 2005 agreement by which our soldiers would transfer detainees to Afghan custody.
How can anyone who reads about the countless episodes of fiberal serial chicanery regarding Afghanistan... not be insane with rage?

These people are just rotten to the core.

Virginia Tech "massacre"...

Could have been much worse...

Maybe not for the families and friends of those killed... but take a step back and look at "the Big Picture."

In short, every six and a half years, give or take a couple of months, Americans get massacred. The difference this time is that the body count is so much lower.

Why? Because the weapons were just guns.


But maybe next time we won't be so lucky. Maybe the killer won't use a weapon that requires him to walk across campus to get from the first two victims to the next 30.

Maybe he'll do what killers already do in Iraq: take out scores of people in one blast.
So for anyone sitting there, who just mentally celebrated the convictions and life sentences handed to the would-be British jihadi-bombers... just remember... their friends and fellow madmen are inevitably bringing this sort of insanity to your doorstep.

One mentally-ill loner is the least of your problems.

"It belongs to us," James Bryant, a spokesman for the hereditary chiefs of the Allied Tsimshian Tribes of Lax Kw'alaams and Metlakatla, defiantly declared as the collection's new owners shifted uncomfortably in the audience.

The collection's history dates back to its acquisition in 1863, at Old Metlakatla, near present-day Prince Rupert, where it was given up - or stolen, depending on your point of view - as part of the natives' conversion to Christianity

If martyrdom is the goal...

Then the so-called "Spring Offensive" is a whopping success...

Nato-led forces and Afghan troops have killed scores of Taleban fighters in the western province of Herat, a coalition statement says.

It said 87 had been killed in a 14-hour battle on Sunday, 49 died two days earlier and one US soldier died.
Despite the dervish-like spinning of CTV and the CBC, the only way to interpret this latest conflict is overwhelming victory for NATO forces.

But two months ago, she did something none of her friends have done. She had her hymen re-sewn, technically making her a virgin again.

This 30-minute outpatient procedure, called "hymenoplasty" and costing between 1,500 and 3,000 euros ($2,000-$4,000), is increasingly popular among young women of North African descent in France.

Yup, no argument there... and the country hasn't fully recovered to this day.

"In 1968, when Trudeau went from rich, socialist professor who had never held a real job in his life to prime minister, Canada’s national debt was a modest $11.3 billion; the federal deficit was zero."

"When Trudeau left office in 1984, the debt had mushroomed to $128 billion; the deficit to $25 billion annually."
Anyone who doesn't get all their current events from the CBC, knows that Pierre Trudeau was the worst thing to happen to this country since the war of 1812.

Fiberal high-flier...

Goes down in flames.

27 Apr 23:30 - Just watched CTV news do a complete puff piece on Lafleur.

Sandie Rinaldo gravely intoned that, "Lafleur took money, for work of little or no value", somehow forgetting to mention that Lafleur was actually handed contracts worth tens of millions of dollars by his Liberal government friends... the only expectation being, that he kick back money to the Fiberals themselves.

No word on Lafleur making any sort of restitution.

Some hard-hitting reporting there, Sandie.

UPDATE: How much time at Club Fed...

Could you do for 12 million dollars?

Lafleur's company made some $65 million from government business from 1995 to 2003. During that time, he and several family members collected nearly $12 million in salaries and bonuses.

Justice John Gomery's report into the sponsorship scandal found Lafleur cultivated contacts in the federal Liberal party that "contributed to what may be described as a financial bonanza for Jean Lafleur and his family."

    (C)... drop it all into cancer research
Well, right at the moment, this one seems like a bit of a no-brainer.
-- OTTAWA -- A new report predicts the number of deaths attributable to cancer may soon surpass those caused by cardiovascular diseases.

Cardiovascular diseases were responsible for 47 per cent of deaths in Canada in 1979; by 2004, this percentage had declined to 32.

The opposite has occurred with cancer, Canada's second main cause of death: Cancer was responsible for 23 per cent of deaths in 1979; by 2004, this share had increased to 30 per cent.
Oh yeah, just for interests sake... the actual figure, carefully buried by successive Fiberal Prime Ministers... is probably a lot closer to two billion.

With apologies to Jeopardy...

What well-known public figure pursued an agenda of...

"exclusiveness, racial superiority, injustice and arrogance while trying to destabilize Poland".
Well, according to Farhan Mujahid Chak, the federal Liberals' candidate in Edmonton-Mill Woods-Beaumont... the answer is not, as one might expect, Adolph Hitler... but Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

And exactly who is Farhan Mujahid Chak?

Surprise, surprise... turns out he was Edmonton campaign manager for Stephane Dion's Liberal leadership bid.

Is there any divisive, outrageous fear-monger the Fiberals won't cosy up to these days? Chak is apparently a very popular person in the Muslim community these days, as he runs around spreading his poison.
Asked about his charge the Tories' have a philosophy of "racial superiority," he says, "Believe it or not, the Conservatives I've met in Edmonton are very racist."
Strangely though, Mr. Chak may not be as wildly enthusiastic about gun control as the rest of his fellow fiberals...
And there are questions around a 1993 shooting incident at a local club in which an Edmonton man named Farhan Mujahid Chak, then 19-- which would make him the same age as the Liberal candidate -- was charged with use of a firearm during commission of an offence and possession of an illegal weapon. (The candidate did not respond to requests for clarification on the charges.)
Yet another stellar choice by Steffi and friends.

UPDATE: Where's Steffi on racist gun-nut Lib?
"Erratic behavior and extremism have no place in Canadian politics, and yet the Liberals have nominated an individual who appears to be guilty of both," said Kenney.

Algerian Islamofascist...

Gets on board the "soul train"...

Samir Saioud, also known as Samir Moussaab, was killed in fighting in Si Mustapha, east of the capital Algiers, security sources told APS news agency.

Saioud was believed to be the number-two of an al-Qaeda-linked Islamist group, the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC).

Earlier this month, the group claimed responsibility for a series of car bombings in the capital, Algiers, including one near the prime minister's office.
Hey... this approach gets around Stephane Dion's concern about prisoners... maybe we can use it in Afghanistan.

Waiting for the explosion

In Deseronto.

-- Local News - Thursday, April 26, 2007 @ 10:00 -- "My personal feeling is that we're sitting on a ticking time bomb."
So says Deseronto Mayor Norm Clark. At a public meeting where residents aired concerns about personal safety and plummetting property values, Clark was doing his best to calm peoples fears.

The biggest problem is those fears are entirely reasonable. Look at who they're dealing with.

He also had a cautionary message for the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte...
Clark told the public Tuesday evening that Deseronto council has encouraged the MBQ band council to come out more strongly against incidents such as the railway blockade.
Unfortunately, Chief R. Donald Maracle apparently subscribes to "the dog ate my homework" school of governance.
The chief of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (MBQ) is worried about losing public support, but says he has no control over the protesters.

Maracle was referring to a public meeting in Deseronto Tuesday evening, where Mayor Norm Clark and town council updated residents on the ongoing negotiations between the MBQ and the federal government.
And the residents of Deseronto hunker down and wait.

Bubble-wrapping the baby...

This makes perfect sense to me.

My son has been a huge football fan since he was six years old. He's been, despite their record, a faithful Raiders booster and we watch NFL ball religiously during the season.

It just seemed inevitable that he would one day play full-contact, balls to the wall, don't scrimp on the mouthpiece tackle football.

Unlike soccer... another very popular game in the area... where parents rush onto the field every time little Timmy trips over his own feet... my son is learning how to block and tackle, how to push the envelope... and just as importantly, how to take a "good hit" without falling to pieces.

He's also learning that you can be "larger than yourself"... about being part of a finely tuned, well oiled machine.

He's come to the point where he has a real sense of satisfaction when he gets through a two hour practice... all the more, from knowing it wasn't a walk in the park.

It was tough enough... that he didn't really want to go back after the first practice. I ended up making a deal with him, that after showing up and doing half of the second round... he could tell the coach he wanted out.

It was a gamble, but when we went to leave that night and the coach said to him, "We'll see you next time", he said, "Yup, I'll be there."

And that's the point. If it was easy, anyone could do it.

It's the sort of thing we did without a second thought when I was a kid.

We climbed trees... hell... we jumped out of trees... while holding the ends of springy branches. We rode our bikes twenty miles round-trip to the local conservation area. We made zip-guns out of wood and elastic and we had "wars." We took our air rifles out on safari.

We played "ball tag"... where instead of tagging someone with your hand, you used a rubber ball... which, skillfully and mercilessly flung, had the potential to knock your target clean out of his "PF Flyers."

And I'm sure my mother's blood pressure soared every time she saw her seven year-old son climb over the the second floor balcony rail, to head out to the playground... but, to her credit, she never once tried to stop me.

I'll give you a hint... it isn't Sidney Poitier.

-- OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Stephen Harper rejected a Liberal suggestion yesterday that Canadian troops should transfer Taliban prisoners to Canada to save them from being handed over to Afghan authorities.
Fresh off his bizarro side deals with Eco-Lizard May and Danny Millions, it seems that Steffi is now sussing out the latest sorely needed block of potential liberal voters.

It's a cagey two-pronged plan... by wrapping up the raggedy-ass fanatical fundamentalist demographic, he also stands to bleed off support from the granola-snorting, sandal-clad wing of the NDP.

Fortunately, the Prime Minister was there to bring the leftbot castles in the sky back in for a safe landing.
Mr. Harper promised the "serious allegations" would be examined by officials and followed up with Afghan authorities, "but what we will not do is bring the Taliban prisoners to Canada."
Now that pricks a hole in Dion's latest trial balloon... but hey Steffi, don't give up just yet.

Maybe the Fiberals could make a special deal with Doug Henning and the Natural Law Party.... so that we can all levitate to work, thus really reducing Canada's carbon emissions.

The assailants are believed to be in their early 20s and of Tamil origin, while the group who was attacked is white, Det. Sgt. Searl said, but there was no immediate indication of whether the incident had any racial overtones.

The myth of the cab-driving...

Foreign-born Neurosurgeon...

"Some of them are driving cabs because they don't pass the level of standard in Canada... just because we need more doctors doesn't mean we should lower our standards."

"Nobody ever talks about them being underqualified... the problem is not that we're not getting them into the system; the problem is they're flopping out."
I've always had my doubts about this latter day urban myth. Now someone in the know is finally, despite the politically correct paralysis gripping the nation, speaking up...
The failure rate for first-time IMGs between 2000 and 2005 was another 40 per cent.

What does that leave? "Not a lot," Lee said. "The number's not huge."

When pressed, Lee refuses to divulge the final number of foreign-trained doctors who actually make it through the funnelling system which weeds out those who can't hack it.

"I don't publish that mother of all stats," he said.

By contrast, Canadian students pass the exams at about a 97-per-cent rate, Lee said.
Something to think about, the next time your "progressive" friends start jawing about Canada's "racist" ways.

-- BAGHDAD -- Gunmen in northern Iraq stopped a bus filled with Christians and members of a tiny Kurdish religious sect, police said, separating out the groups and taking 23 of the passengers away to be shot.

Police said the execution-style killings of the Yazidis — a primarily Kurdish sect that worships an angel figure considered to be the devil by some Muslims and Christians — appeared to be in response to the stoning death of a Yazidi woman who had recently converted to Islam.
And the beat goes on.

Democracy... in the Middle East

Pop quiz... when is a dictatorship actually "a democracy"?

Answer... When Baath Party leader and President Bashar Assad says it is...

Unlike the polls in Nigeria or France, there is almost no contest and voters are not showing much interest.

But in Syria, in effect ruled by one party, there is no room for real politics, says the BBC's Kim Ghattas, a situation reflected in widespread apathy among the electorate.
But they have a parliament... it must be a free and democratic land.
Adding to voter apathy is the mostly nominal role of the parliament - it cannot give or withdraw confidence to the government; it cannot draft laws, only debate those sent to it by the government; and it has no say in foreign policy.

Its first task will be to approve the Baath Party nomination of the president, Bashar Assad, for a second seven-year term.

Mr Assad will be the only candidate in a July referendum.
Okay... I get it. It's one of those "nudge, nudge, wink, wink" democracies the lefties are always holding up as modern day political miracles.

21 April 2007

If you're a copper...

And some guy tells you he's gonna rob a bank... aren't you under some sort of obligation to keep an eye on him and maybe try to prevent it?

If you've been following the aboriginal rail blockade in Deseronto, in Eastern Ontario this week, you might not necessarily come to that conclusion.

Shawn Brant, fresh off a major disruption of Canada's busiest rail corridor, is promising more of what he likes to call, "economic disruptions" to Canadian citizenry and infrastructure alike... in the near future.

"Believe it or not, it was the first soft step of the campaign," said Shawn Brant around 8 a.m., two hours after the group removed a school bus blocking the tracks. "We have identified three different targets, and we will escalate the degree of severity as is necessary."
Bear in mind this is the very same Shawn Brant who had a spot of trouble with the local constabulary just a little while ago...
-- DESERONTO -- Charged with three counts of uttering death threats are Shawn Michael Brant, 42, of Tyendinaga.
But, you might ask, "Don't the police have to have pretty specific cause before they start keeping tabs on private citizens"?

Well, the enthusiastic, but apparently not especially bright Mr. Brant has obligingly and very publicly announced his criminal intent to the mainstream media...
Those targets are the railway, provincial highways and the town of Deseronto, Brant said as he puffed on cigarettes at the gravel quarry that is the heart of the dispute

The next target has been selected already and plans for the action are being finalized, he said.
I suspect Mr. Brant is feeling quite pleased with himself for the moment... after shutting down, occupying and looting a private gravel pit operation and then, in short order, facing down one of the largest corporate entities in Canada... with absolutely no legal consequences to himself, or his band of criminal brothers.

Not too surprisingly, the aboriginal police force seems to have taken Mr. Brant's side of things... going as far as to join him for refreshments at his illegal siege.

Although I have heard from a reliable source, that local OPP line officers are not very happy about having to stand by and watch these miscreants flouting the law, apparently those higher up the chain of command have no such issues...
"No arrests have been made at this point", said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kristine Rae.

"We’re pleased that it was a peaceful resolution."
Peaceful, of course, until the day it isn't.

LAST WORD: I have a theory...
... about danger and risk-taking... it goes something like this...

Doing something stupid, or dangerous is like playing the lottery... the more tickets you buy, the better your chances of "winning the jackpot".

Right now, Shawn Brant is on a hysterical spending spree. He's won a few small prizes and now he has gambling fever...

With all the tickets he's been buying lately, I'm guessin' Mr. Brant is due for a big win. And as soon as he oversteps and engages the OPP, or another similar body in his much touted "violent confrontation"... he may find he has hit the jackpot.

Just my two cents.

Everyday Feminine Protection...#2

Lock and load, ladies...

Tough isn't a word necessarily associated with Miss America, but three thieves arrested after their truck tires were shot out by 82-year-old Venus Ramey might beg to differ.

Ramey, who won the elite beauty crown in 1944, confronted one of the three robbers on her farm in Waynesburg, Ky., about 140 miles south of Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

"He was probably wetting his pants," said Ramey, who balanced on her walking stick as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-caliber handgun.

Thank you, Ontario taxpayers...

For handing the world’s largest producer of cereal products millions of taxpayer dollars.

Jeff Chow, Kellogg plant manager in Belleville, said his company has received “great support“ from the province of Ontario, the Quinte region and the City of Belleville. Chow said he can’t wait to start producing Kellogg products at the new plant.

“Construction is well under way and we should be under operation by the fourth quarter of this year.“

When asked whether Kellogg will open with 100 employees as previously stated, Chow replied, “That is still being developed.“
Well, actually you should thank the provincial Liberal government.

Of course, if you have to bribe a manufacturer of anything to entice them to your city, it's only a matter of time before they find someone who can top your bid... or provide lots of amigos who'll work for peanuts.

Look what happened with Hershey in Smith Falls.

At least the community gets something back this time... unlike Dalton McGuinty's other recent payoff.

20 April 2007

Shssssh... it's a secret

Go to CTV.ca and you'll see the title for an article that reads, "Demonstrators block Ontario rail crossing"... but wait a minute... something's not quite right.


Oh shoot... looks like they forgot to mention it wasn't seniors supporting "leash laws" or something like that... it was another illegal "aboriginal blockade"... of the most heavily travelled rail corridor in Canada.

Boy... are they ever gonna be embarrassed.

UPDATE:
Native blockaders blink...

But Shawn Brant promises more criminal activity will follow.

“I don't think they should expect an apology,” said Mr. Brant, who suggested the blockade was prompted by government inaction on the Mohawk's land claim.

Mr. Brant vowed that the occupation of the quarry would continue and that the group would mount further protests. “The disruption on the CN line was a first in a series of economic disruptions, the first in a campaign,” he said.

“We've been occupying the quarry and we have said we will never relinquish it... we will use it as a staging ground for further action.”
And why wouldn't he be willing to do it again and again... if he gets to walk away scot-free here.
Sgt. Kristine Rae, a spokeswoman for the Ontario Provincial Police, said the tracks are being inspected before rail traffic is allowed to resume.

Although the injunction ordered the protesters off the rail tracks and stated anyone who didn't comply would be arrested, Sgt. Rae said no arrests were made.
It's a dynamic a toddler would understand.

Never mind Empire...

Should Brits worry about the country itself flying apart?

Following hard on the heels of a reported shift to the right in French politics, the United Kingdom is apparently coming to a fork in the road on its immigration policy...

Immigration could lead to the political break-up of Britain, according to think-tank Civitas.

Shadow home secretary David Davis said: "We know that unchecked immigration is putting pressure on housing and local services. "Now this report shows that its effects are potentially even more serious."

"Given the limited number of schools, hospitals and houses, the government must apply a limit on the amount of people entering the country," he concluded.

Ministers had also announced a new tough Australian-style points system for immigrants, he added.
The report warns of a "tipping point", beyond which it conjures up a very chaotic situation...
"Once such a point is reached, political disintegration may be predicted to be not long in following," the report said.

Preem admits, "I'm no leader"

"Please save my bacon, Oh Wise Federal Leader", cries Dalton McGuinty.

-- Deseronto, Ont. -- Aboriginal protesters vowed Friday to maintain their planned 48-hour blockade of eastern Ontario's main rail corridor despite a court injunction ordering them off the railway crossing.

The tense situation prompted Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty to urge the federal government to intervene at the “earliest possible opportunity” to help resolve the issues behind the blockade.
Having made a major-league mess of the year old, as-yet-unresolved aboriginal standoff in Caledonia, Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty is apparently now at his wits end... over a similar situation developing in Deseronto.

See, here's the question Dalton... if I go down the road and commandeer the local lumber yard and threaten to take over the neighbouring town, how long do you think it would take an OPP SWAT team to stand me down... one way or another?

These terrorists are shutting down country-wide commerce.

What's your problem here? Dalton..? Dalton?

Is it still racist...

If a black man says it?

"The Beckles shooting was a defining moment for us," recalled Staff Inspector Dave McLeod, who, less than 72 hours later, took the helm of what was dubbed the black intelligence unit.

Its focus: the black-on-black shootings that were fuelling the worst wave of gun crimes the city has ever seen.
So what happens a black police officer from Toronto takes an assignment on a "crime-washed island that has long produced one of the world's highest homicide tallies?
Staff Insp. McLeod went to Jamaica, where a Globe and Mail reporter conducted a series of exclusive interviews during the officer's last days on the job in Kingston — the crime-ravaged capital city where pockets are ruled by fearsome gangs whose reach extends clear to the streets of Toronto.
There's an interesting comparison to be made between the city of Toronto and the country of Jamaica itself...
High as its homicide total was in 2004, it was higher still in 2005, reaching a record 1,674 among a population of 2.7 million people, surpassing the rates of both Colombia and South Africa.

By comparison, Toronto, with almost the same population, witnessed 80 homicides that year, 52 of them gun deaths.

Of those shootings, more than half involved first- or second-generation Jamaican Canadians, most in their late teens or 20s.
A compelling read.

Justice - Aboriginal style - again...

**********
LATEST GESTURE: Oh yeah, that'll solve things...

"CN has obtained an injunction from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that has been served on the protesters by the sheriff's department requiring them to dismantle the blockade forthwith," said CN Rail spokesman Mark Hallman.
**********

Hey, big surprise... another aboriginal terrorist action.
The train tracks at Deseronto Road, west of Kingston, have once again been blocked by a group of people who police said are affiliated with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte.
Just listening on the local radio station to professional spokes-native Shawn Brant trying to justify closing down the CN tracks at Deseronto.

Brant was spouting the usual "we are victims" argle-bargle about the racist Canadian regime... while his band of merry men was shutting down all rail traffic between Toronto and points east.

A spokesman for CN came on and was very careful not to offend native sensibilities by mentioning the effect on commuters, or the cost to businesses waiting for just-in-time shipments. Wouldn't want to hurt anybody's feelings, would we.

Funny... no one available to comment from the OPP.

Again.

**********

UPDATE: Speak OPP, speak...

Just heard a Napanee OPP constable on radio station CJBQ say that the CN rail lands are, "the jurisdiction of the CN police".

Whew, that was a close one guys... see you back at the Tims.

Here's the party line from the OPP...
"Currently the situation is peaceful," police said in a news release around 8 a.m. "The O.P.P. and the C.N. Police are working closely together.

The O.P.P. are at the scene rerouting traffic around the blockade."
So much for "law enforcement". Well, I guess we'll have to settle for traffic cops.

No problem here... move along folks.

RELATED: Occupation and thievery...

First they shut down and occupy a private business... then they start stealing the inventory.
Mohawk demonstrators make no apologies about trucking gravel out of the Thurlow Aggregates site for use on driveways and potholes on the Tyendinaga reserve, says one protester.

Demonstrators have been using their own equipment to truck some of the existing gravel to benefit people on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, said Jason Maracle, who has been on the scene since the occupation began March 22.
So where are the OPP and Tyendinaga police on this?

The protest blockade at Deseronto is a decidedly laid-back affair, as shown in this photo from Loyalist Pioneer's Christopher Clarke.

Here, Tyendinaga Mohawk Police Senior Const. Marcel Maracle, left, relaxes with protest organizer Shawn Brant as the pair waited for a pot of corn soup to heat over the campfire.
I guess we know why nobody's getting arrested.

Like federal like provincial...

It's the same old Fiberal story... your money - their friends...

An Iranian community group, whose members include Ontario Liberals, received a $200,000 immigrant aid grant from the provincial government only three weeks after it was registered as a charity.

The centre was first listed with the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency as a charitable organization in the category "protection of animals," but later was changed to the category "recreation, playgrounds and vacation camps."

Its directors include the Liberal candidate for the new riding of Richmond Hill in the Oct. 10 provincial election and the riding association president, whose North York law office is listed as the charity's mailing address.
Thank you Dalton McGuinty.

UPDATE: 21 Apr - McGuinty lets bribe to Iranians slide...
"I think we can do a better job and I think that we have to do a better job," Mr. McGuinty told reporters yesterday. "We're going to have to look at it."

While the Fiberals "look at it", Conservatives call for an investigation...
Conservative opposition leader John Tory called for an investigation by the auditor general into the matter and said he planned to introduce a motion compelling officials to testify before a committee on the matter.
