We don' need no...

...steenkin' justice system...
who needs judges & juries anywayOh my gawd... drugs are one thing, but if I'd known he was a cold-blooded killer...

"And that's not even the whole story. A city hall revolt and murder are also now part of the imbroglio gripping Toronto's local government."
Wow, I can't wait to hear "the whole story." I'm envisioning intimate escapades with livestock, selling young girls & boys into sexual slavery... who knows what other depravity this guy is into?

Apparently only our omniscient friends in the media.

Hmmm... I'm thinking, before this thing is over, Rob Ford may not be the only one who needs a lawyer.

The Globe and Mail knows what's best for everybody...
Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford must resign, as a matter of principle, as a matter of leadership, and as a matter of good governance. Even if the allegations against him are untrue, that is now beside the point. It is now too late to salvage the effectiveness, not to mention the dignity, of his term as mayor.
Unbelieveable. Even if he's innocent... he's guilty. Stalin could take lessons from these soul-less sack-o-shit scribblers.

In light of this, a fellow blogger has an interesting proposal...
"Imagine the Media Party’s reaction if I were to set up an on-line collection system to hire a private investigator in order look into who Layton’s hooker was."

UPDATE: All of this nonsense...

...can only ASCEND into farce...

Anybody else see a pattern here?


Never a Community Organiser around...

...when you really need one...

The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is what was the president doing in those eight hours. He had a routine meeting at five o’clock. He never after during the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger, he never called the Secretary of Defense, he never calls the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he never called the CIA Director, Who does he call?

Five hours in he calls the Secretary of State. And after the phone call she releases a statement essentially about the video and how we denounce any intolerance. It looks as if the only phone call is to construct a cover story at a time when the last two Americans who died were still alive and fighting for their lives. There’s the scandal and that has to be uncovered.”
In other "pants on fire" news...
From President Obama on down, the recap was simple: A crowd of demonstrators angry over an obscure YouTube video that denigrated Islam’s Prophet Muhammad spontaneously stormed the complex.

Today, the public knows that those early administration pronouncements were false. They were uttered with less than two months to go in a presidential election campaign in which Mr. Obama declared al Qaeda on its heels.

The story line of the Benghazi scandal is filled with misleading statements and poor decision-making:

• A president who publicly clung to the idea that an American dabbler in YouTube productions prompted the deaths of four Americans.

• A State Department that repeatedly denied requests for more security and pulled bodyguards out of Libya as violence spiked.

• Altered “talking points” that the administration used on a series of Sunday interview shows to tell Americans that the attack was a protest rather than an orchestrated assault by terrorists.

• The world’s most powerful military as a spectator as the attack unfolded.

Ask a Journo-Canadian

Lesson 1.. how to report on a first degree murder...airbrushing the politburoOkay... succinct & to the point, but wait... is there something missing here? Let's see what Canada's "national broadcaster" has to say...oopsFunny thing, though... you click on the article and the headline appears to have been altered. C'mon guys... if you're gonna publicly piss all over someone, at least have the stones to stay the course.

That's the least Canadians expect for their 1.3 billion dollars.

...CBC as yet unable to link killing to Rob Ford...

Toronto police have been called to the scene of a fatal shooting in the city's east end. Police reports that a man was shot at 17 Manti Road, near Morningside Avenue and Lawrence Avenue East.
Don't worry folks, I'm sure they'll keep trying.

**********

UPDATE2: Latest "target" identified
Surenthira Vaithilingam, 37, was killed while doing landscaping in backyard in what police are calling a “targeted shooting.” “It’s very terrible, it’s scary to us,” said one of Vaithilingam’s neighbours, who comes from the same northern-Sri Lankan village that Vaithilingam was from.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A court employee who retrieved photos and deleted text messages from Trayvon Martin's cellphone has been placed on administrative leave after an attorney testified that prosecutors didn't properly turn over the evidence to the defense, an attorney said Wednesday.

Former prosecutor Wesley White said he was ethically obligated to reveal that Fourth Judicial Circuit Information Technology Director Ben Kruidbos retrieved the data that weren't turned over.

White said the photos Kruidbos retrieved were of a hand holding a gun and one depicted drugs. The content of the text messages wasn't specified.
Unfortunately, hiding evidence from the Zimmerman defence team may be a crime... but despite a man's life hanging in the balance, the judge won't allow any of it to be presented at trial.

TORONTO - Any claim that senior political staff in the Dalton McGuinty government innocently erased their emails “strains credulity,” Ontario information and privacy commissioner Dr. Ann Cavoukian says.

New Democrat MPP Peter Tabuns complained to Cavoukian’s office after learning that internal emails, including those related to cancelled gas plants in Mississauga and Oakville, were wiped clean after the departure of staff. The cost of cancelling and relocating the two plants has climbed to at least $585 million, after an initial pricetag of $230 million.

“Not only have they been deleted, but the deleted would have been deleted, and somebody would have gone to great pains to destroy the backup as well.”

Cavoukian said she’ll go into much greater detail in the report which will be released in June.
So, the Liberals pissed away 600 million taxpayer dollars... AND THEN tried to cover it up. No wonder Dalton bailed.

"Khadr was finally allowed onto the range in February. In March, prison authorities asked him to work on the food line, handing out pieces of butter to other prisoners."
Wow... it's almost like breaking rocks on a chain gang.

Not surprisingly, the article skips over what it terms the "negative influence from his family", nudge, nudge, wink, wink... "some of whom expressed sympathy for extremist groups several years ago."

Extremist groups, huh? Don't you dare use the "T" word... wouldn't wanna hurt anybody's feelings.

Let's also not forget that some of Omar's family were shot dead by counter-terror operatives for engaging in these "negative" activities.

Not ready for "Prime" time

The Conservative Party should hire Justin a tour bus and subsidise a cross-country speaking tour...

OTTAWA -- The scandal-plagued Senate has a cheerleader in Justin Trudeau after the Liberal leader said he wouldn't abolish the chamber because it's to Quebec's gain over other provinces to keep the lights on.

"We have 24 senators from Quebec and there are just six from Alberta and British Columbia. It's to our advantage," he told a French newspaper.

It's not the first time the Montreal MP has put Quebec's interests first. In 2010, he told an interviewer he was tired of Albertans running the country and that Quebecers have made the best prime ministers - remarks his staff said were taken out of context.
Maybe there's a reason for all JT's wacky ideas about caste and politics... let's ask Canada's "Prince of Pot"...

When I hear the word preacher, I think Billy Graham... or Martin Luther King. I can't imagine either of them condoning cold-blooded, premeditated slaughter... unlike, say... Anjem Choudary.

"I last saw him in 2011, he was a very nice man with impeccable character and nothing unusual about him. What he did was unusual and it's not the kind of view that I propagate and I do not condone the use of violence, but those views are out there."

"Some members of the Muslim community struggle to express themselves and he is making his voice heard in blood.""
So who, in this mans opinion, are the real culprits?
"If you want to condemn anyone it's the British government, this is one death but if you add up the number of people killed and tortured by the British government it is in the millions."
Who exactly is this man defending? Meet Mikey.
Michael Adebolajo, 28, and his unnamed accomplice are believed to have knocked off duty Drummer Lee Rigby down with a Vauxhall Tigra as he walked back to the Woolwich Barracks at 2.20pm yesterday, crushing his body against a road sign.

Witnesses said the terror suspects then "hacked and chopped" at his body like "crazed animals", before dragging his corpse into the middle of the road leaving a trail of blood.

As they apparently tried to decapitate him they were chanting "Allah Akbar!" – an Islamic phrase meaning "God is great" - and yelling "this is what God would have wanted".
That's one bloodthirsty deity.

Of course, the government does bear some responsibility here...
Government sources confirmed that the names of both suspects were on a list maintained by the security services, but stressed it was unclear what level of surveillance they were under.

Palinkas also notes that under the current law and system, USCIS reports a 99.5 percent approval rating for ILLEGAL immigrants seeking legal residency inside the United States.

In addition, over the past year, Palinkas said USCIS has waived more than $200 million in fees from ILLEGAL immigrants seeking legal status.
Another lasting legacy of the Obama presidency.

My first question here would be... aside from further dismantling of the conservative principle of a meritocracy... why bother spending billions of dollars on border security if you're going to throw open the doors anyway?

As striking as what appears in the email traffic is what does not. There is no mention of the YouTube video that would become a central part of the administration’s explanation of the attacks to the American people until a brief mention in the subject line of emails coming out of an important meeting where further revisions were made.

UPDATE: Sticking to the party line...
The president continued, "Keep in mind by the way these so-called talking points that were prepared for Susan Rice, five, six days after the event occurred, pretty much matched the assessments that I was receiving at that time in my presidential daily briefing."
Funny, that's not what the guys on the ground are saying.

LAST WORD: Let's see the paperwork
The source said the deletion of references to al Qaeda and the CIA's warnings came after a White House meeting on the day before Susan Rice appeared on the Sunday talk shows.
Yup... let's blame it all on Youtube.

"An expert in U.S. burial law said the resistance to Tsarnaev's burial is unprecedented in a country that has always found a way to put to rest its notorious killers, from Lee Harvey Oswald to Adam Lanza, who gunned down 20 children and six educators at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school last year."
Let's see a little of that infamous charismatic leadership here.

The remains of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev have been buried in a Muslim cemetery in Doswell, Va., a small community about 15 miles from Richmond, the state capital.

High infant mortality among First Nations could partly account for Canada's poor ranking. While data on the subject is sparse, a 2010 study in the Canadian Journal of Public Health notes infant mortality for Quebec babies born of Inuit mothers was 23.1 deaths per 1,000, compared to 5.1 for Canadians in general.

The worst country in the entire world for first-day deaths is Somalia, where 18 per 1,000 babies never see a second day.
It's gotta be racism... right?

Hope, Change and... move along folks

Obama White House happy to blame it all on Youtube...

Further examination of Benghazi is clearly political, he said, because the incident and surrounding circumstances have "been looked at exhaustively.”

The continued pursuit of details of the attack is, Carney said, "part of an effort to chase after what isn't the substance here."
Yessirree... "further examination"... that's always a bad thing.

RELATED: Ask a DEMOCRAT

They have a platitude for every occasion...
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, tells Benghazi witnesses that "death is a part of life."
That's real purty, Elijah.

Let's ask a grieving mother...
"I got one telephone call from a clerk that was a couple days after it happened. He was reading to me from the time line, which I already had. And that was it. And since then, all they have told me is that I am not part of the immediate family so they don't want to tell me anything."
The Whitehouse just wants this to all go away.

I know where my sympathies lie.

**********

UPDATE: It's just so confusing, huh Barry?
The White House on Wednesday stood by its story that the Obama administration remained unsure exactly who was responsible for the attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi nearly five days after it occurred even though new revelations show Ansar al-Sharia’s direct involvement.
The temperature continues to climb.

Reading, writing and...

...OH... MY... GAWD...

A Toronto public school teacher has been ordered to work from home after posting explicit sex-education brochures in his Grade 7 and 8 classroom. Published by the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT), it’s entitled “Use Your Head When Giving It: Blow Job Tips” and offers advice for gay men on safe sex.

The brochure includes an image of the tattooed back of a man with his pants down and his backside being clutched by man reaching around from the front, seemingly while on his knees.

TDSB spokesman Ryan Bird insisted the teacher had “good intentions” and used the brochures to communicate with students in a youthful way.
What is it they say about "good intentions"?

There's gotta be a better explanation for this... right?
The school’s trustee, Chris Bolton, did not return calls, nor did TDSB superintendent Beth Butcher.

YOU'VE GOT MAIL: It's always interesting...

I usually moderate silliness like this, but sometimes feel I should share the most lurid hysterics. Funny how often the nonnybots start off with... "you're fat, drunk, bald" etc... or my personal favourite... "you're a fag"...
"You're well known for your strong homoerotic interest though. Perhaps JT arouses you? Wouldn't surprise."

Has anybody run the syllabus past...

That agitated Professor XXXXXX, who curtly replied, "I'm not going to engage in a forensic examination of the syllabus with you, thank you for your time." Then he hung up on me.

It's easy to sympathize with Professor XXXXXX'X frustration. It would be tremendously difficult to do a forensic examination of anything if you don't believe there's such a thing as a verifiable fact.

The really big question coming out of the budget is what will happen to the province’s credit rating? The plan outlined last week adds a whopping $40 billion to the debt over the next two years.

Let’s put that in context: Before the NDP became government in 1990, the entire provincial debt, accumulated over the previous 100 years, was only $40 billion.

Now we add that amount in two years.

Of all people, Hillary should know...

...it's not necessarily the crime... it's the cover-up that'll kill ya...

The lawyers said their clients believe their accounts of Benghazi were spurned by the Accountability Review board, the official investigative body convened by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to review the terrorist attacks, and that the two employees have faced threats and intimidation from as-yet-unnamed superiors.

“There were people who were material witnesses, who wanted to talk to the Accountability Review board, and they were not allowed to talk to them."
Benghazi, Benghazi... that sounds so familiar.

**********

UPDATE: Hillary's goin' down
Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks, told the committee that he and his colleagues on the ground in Libya that night knew instantly that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and that he was astonished that no one drafting the administration's talking points consulted with him before finalizing them, or before U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice delivered them on the Sunday talk shows of Sept. 16.
Looks like Mrs Bubba has effectively torched her 2016 presidential run.

The lawyer who first drew up White House policy on lethal drone strikes has accused the Obama administration of overusing them because of its reluctance to capture prisoners that would otherwise have to be sent to Guantánamo Bay.
Drone strikes, drone strikes... that sounds so familiar...
The pace of drone strikes has increased to two or three a week, up roughly fourfold from the Bush years.

Although drone strikes have killed more than a dozen Qaeda and Taliban leaders, they have incinerated hundreds of civilians, including women and children.
Funny... you don't hear about that on the nightly news.

"In an unprecedented move clamping down on free speech, Toronto police have threatened a rabbi that if he allows a speech to be given in his synagogue by a well-known anti-Islamist activist, he will lose his job as a chaplain with the force."
Please tell me the cops weren't wearing black trenchcoats.

**********

UPDATE: Hey, this is York Region...

...all speeches must be approved by the "higher authority"...
Inspector Ricky Veerappan, of the force’s diversity, equity and inclusion bureau, said he told Rabbi Mendel Kaplan that Geller’s speech “would not be endorsed by York Regional Police” and that the rabbi’s role as a force chaplain would be thrown into question if he were to permit the event.

“If he did (host Geller), then we’d have to reassess our relationship with (Kaplan),” Veerappan said. Some of the stuff that Ms. Geller speaks about runs contrary to the values of York Regional Police."

This week’s poster child for dubious conduct is Jane Shin, B.C. NDP candidate in Burnaby-Lougheed. Among her infractions, Ms. Shin — who is of Korean descent — once referred to Chinese-Canadians as “chinkasaureses.”

As in: “I'm fed up with the chinkasaureses roaming abouts in Vancouver.”

Should Ms. Shin have been let off the hook? Far worse than her ancient “chinkasaureses” crack are signs she exaggerated her academic and professional credentials.

The NDP chose to leave her in the race.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts killed three and injured hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document.

The Saudi warning, the official told MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen.
