THE JUSTIN PARTY: Required Reading

From "Party of One," the scary, post apocalyptic Michael Harris fairy story about evil Stephen Harper's "sabre-rattling"...
"The White House, the Pentagon, American and Israeli intelligence, and the IAEA had all come to the same conclusion based on the evidence: Iran does not have a nuclear weapon, is not building one, and has not decided to build one."
Meanwhile, back in the real world...
Lausanne, Switzerland, March 30, 2015 3:55 pm - Iran rejected on Monday ongoing demands by Western powers that it export to Russia its stockpiles of enriched uranium, the key component in a nuclear bomb. “The export of stocks of enriched uranium is not in our program, and we do not intend sending them abroad,” Abbas Araqchi, an Iranian negotiator and diplomat, was quoted as telling the country’s state-run press. “There is no question of sending the stocks abroad.”
Oh, yeah... that enriched uranium.

Need another example?
"Since dismantling the Long Gun Registry, the Harper government has four times delayed rules that would assign serial numbers to guns."
That's funny, EVERY GUN I've ever owned, EVERY GUN I've ever seen, including an octagonal barrelled muzzle loading rifle from the 1800's has had a serial number.

Perhaps Mr Harris is referring to tattooing serial numbers on gun owners themselves? I do know that when I go to Canadian Tire to buy .22 ammunition for my tin can plinker, I have to present my state-issued photo-id Firearms Licence which duly records my every crime against humanity.


"Any serial number can be filed off, including a Liberal one."
As articulated elsewhere... "Increasingly complex gun control legislation is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars."

Apparently Quebec knows a guy...

...who knows a guy...
Based on “conservative” estimates, a provincial registry will cost at least $30 million to set up, but Thériault acknowledged that the number could fluctuate. “You have to take the time to draw up the legislation, table the legislation, adopt the legislation, all of that. You have to understand that it can’t be done overnight.”
So, no actual tenders and no actual completion date... but Quebec will pay a fraction of the $2,000,000,000 the Federal Liberals pissed away on their not quite functional post-Ghamil Gharbi public relations exercise?

Whaddaya wanna bet that number doesn't "fluctuate" down?

Well, c'mon now folks...

...you can't discriminate against the poor dear because he had demons in his dome...
The forensic find comes hours after it emerged that Lubitz was forced to postpone his pilot training in 2008 because of mental health problems, with a friend saying he was 'in depression'.

Many things happened in quick succession in the cockpit. Batouti reached over and shut off the fuel, killing both engines. Habashi screamed, "What is this? What is this? Did you shut the engines?"
Next up... the age-old bias against visually impaired pilots.


LAST WORD: Closing the barn door
The federal government has issued an emergency order requiring Canadian airlines to have two crew members in the cockpit at all times.
Better late than never I guess.

That secretive, tyrannical George W....

...wait just a freakin' minute...
"For the second consecutive year, the Obama administration more often than ever censored government files or outright denied access to them under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act."
how's that hopey changey thing working out for you
The government took longer to turn over files when it provided any, said more regularly that it couldn’t find documents, and refused a record number of times to turn over files quickly that might be especially newsworthy.

It also acknowledged in nearly 1 in 3 cases that its initial decisions to withhold or censor records were improper under the law — but only when it was challenged.

Its backlog of unanswered requests at year’s end grew remarkably by 55 per cent to more than 200,000.
Listen up sheeple. You truly do get the kind of government you deserve.

As the protests began, the cameras stayed on the regents. That’s when Napolitano leans over to Varner and said, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Her hot mic caught the comment.

The comment was a different tone from Napolitano at the very same meeting. “They want to be sure that their voices are being heard and I want to commit to them that their voices are being heard.”
Wake up folks... Barack and friends ARE the One Percent.

Geez, what's the big deal?

It's not like anybody got kil... wait a minute...
The House Committee on Benghazi has given Hillary Clinton an additional two weeks to respond to a subpoena asking for her private emails on Libya and the 2012 terrorist attacks.

Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) subpoenaed the former secretary of state after it was reported that she used a personal email that stored her communications on an off-site server at her home.

“Chairman Gowdy still believes the best option for Secretary Clinton is to turn over her server to a neutral arbiter to independently determine what should be in the public domain. The Committee has no interest in her personal emails.”
Looks like Slick Willie's missus isn't as smart as she thinks she is.

From the folks who brought you...

...Trudeau & Trudeau-lite...land of pspawnWelcome to the land of beta-male inadequacy...
"They weren’t at capacity, it’s that having military personnel there is bad for business... the men buying drinks would get intimidated."
Montreal, Quebec, home of the sensitive, new age guy...
I began by explaining that I, like my feminist sisters, blame “men” for the Montreal Massacre, too—it’s just that I blame not only Gamil Gharbi, but also the “prophet” Muhammad, Pierre Trudeau, and the fifty or so male students who meekly left their classmates to their fate.

LAST WORD: Iron, er... Plastic Men...

...and Wooden Ships...
And, when it was over and Gharbi walked out of the room and past them, they still did nothing. Whatever its other defects, Canadian manhood does not suffer from an excess of testosterone.”
That's what we aspire to... right?

Don't blame the Golf-Pro in Chief

He's been so damn busy throwing open the gates and waging faux-war on terror... he wouldn't know email from she-male.
"The administration previously has said the president learned of the email scandal via news reports."


UPDATE: Never mind the deception...

...any country worth it's salt has an NSA equivalent.
An email system such as the one described is considered "easy pickings." After seeing the details in the press, my first conclusion is this: The Russians and the Chinese were reading her emails. In real time. I'm not saying maybe or perhaps. They were.

Did Putin know what our reaction would be before he invaded the Ukraine?

Did Al Quaida know our intentions in Benghazi before the attack?

Did Iran know our proposals before we started negotiating this latest agreement?
Oops on steroids.


UPDATE2: Leave it to Hillary...

...to make Monica Lewinsky look like a genius...
Hillary said during her press conference that her email server "contains personal communications from my husband and me."
Wait for it...
"The former president, who does regularly use Twitter, has sent a grand total of two emails during his entire life, both as president, says Matt McKenna, his spokesman."
Hillary Rodham Clinton... the Maxwell Smart of American politics.

Of Sinners and Superheroes

So, for two years now, young Elton McDonald, a longtime resident of the nearby Driftwood "community" has been digging a recreational tunnel (storeroom, cave, dungeon?) on property he doesn't own using "borrowed" construction materials and tools (a long term loan, it appears). He has also, in the spirit of entrepreneurship and modern romance, been doing this work under cover of night.

Forgive my suspicious nature, but there seems to be what lawyers would call a strong "consciousness of guilt" here.

In addition to the facts above, when young Elton showed up at Sun News to get his 15 minutes of fame he lied about his identity. Additionally, despite claiming the mantle of responsibility, he deflects any and all possible criminal activity to associates he refuses to identify. He might be lead architect... or just a digger. It depends.

Despite all these apparent red flags, the MSM and, more surprisingly, the Toronto Police service, have chosen to ignore any criminality and re-make Elton into some sort of dashing Robin Hood cum Robinson Crusoe-like symbol.

The media seems to be focussed on Elton's construction expertise. I'm thinking it's a mercy someone caught up to this Frank Lloyd Wrong before his underground barbequing caused multiple deaths by carbon monoxide. Let's not even think about what happens when you put a pick through a natural gas line or a buried high tension electrical feeder cable.

PS... I'm thinking I need a challenge. Anybody know where I can "borrow" a hundred two by eights and a couple dozen sheets of plywood? Oh, yeah... I'll need a generator too. I'll get it all back to you in a couple of years.



UPDATE: So, it's Driftwood, shit happens

So your buddies show up and stash a high powered rifle in your crib when you're not looking. Don't you hate when that happens?
On Sept. 1, 2013, police found a Browning Arms A-bolt .300-calibre rifle stashed in the home. McDonald was charged with possession of firearm without a licence and three other weapons offences.
Charges were eventually stayed. It was all a misunderstanding.

As per usual, the real story takes place...

...in the comments...
"The overview reveals a virtually identical homicide solving rate for Aboriginal women (88%) and non-Aboriginal women (89%). The study reveals that the rate of stranger perpetrated homicide against Aboriginal women is 8%, virtually the same as for non-Aboriginal women (7%).
As tragic as this situation is is (and gawd knows there is tragedy aplenty in aboriginal circles) the evidence clearly indicates that there is no coverup here. No evidence supports that aboriginal women are being targeted by race or that the murders of aboriginal women are being ignored by law enforcement agencies. In fact, some folks would argue that cops focus entirely too much on that demographic...
The incarceration rate of aboriginal men is 11 times that of non-native men; of women, it is 250 times the rate for non-native women.
So what is actually going on here?
It's not exactly going out on a limb to surmise that a significant portion of these murders are domestic violence. 93% are murdered by people they know. 63% were drunk or on drugs. The facts speak for themselves.
Wishing doesn't make it otherwise.
