FALSE FLAG EARTH ~ THE PLANNED DECIMATION OF A PLANET

By Zen Gardner
April 30th, 2012.
There comes a time when a coming convergence becomes apparent. But when it spells possible doom people are not too eager to see it.
But see it we must. Because sound the alarm we must as well as prepare.
Funny how that s another thing they minimize and belittle. Conspiracy freak leads into gloom and doom preacher , fear and hate monger etc., all being cleverly wrapped into the terrorist catch-all these fascist days.
F ing bastards. Always missing the point on purpose to divert and betray.
OUR SURREAL NEWS
With several recent realities finally striking home there s hope people are catching on.
Shrimping is finally banned off the Gulf of Mexico due to horrific deformities and lesions in specimens being found (duh); the arrival of radioactive Japan tsunami debris on the US west coast (reality strikes); the continued massive radioactive releases into the air and water around Fukushima finally getting attention (hello!), and growing concerns about earthquake causing fracking in the U.S. (again, reported?)
Something s seriously amiss. And that s just a sampling.
All these man-made anomalies are outrageous. And the Fukushima mutation weirdness has hardly begun with the millions of tons of nuclear contaminated water being continually, and dutifully I might add, dumped off of Japan.
Just wait to see what s brewing in the toxic sea. The mutations and die-offs have started, but just barely. It will get very distressing.
WE VE BEEN CONNED
You d think people might start to realize something serious is actually going down.
They can t.
It s too horrific.
Listen.
If the spent fuel rod pool just at Fukushima reactor 4 collapses, there will be so much plutonium-based radiation released it s being called a potential Extinction Level Event (ELE).
Just that. And if that doesn t bake your noodle , do you know how many hundreds of these types of old dangerous fuel rod stocked reactors there are around the world?
And all those built in the 60 s and 70 s are now due for expiration ! Never mind the plethora of nuclear bomb manufacturing facilities in the US and around the world!
We re talking insane, people.
And most of us had nothing to do with any of this.
At least not consciously.
This planet is one large deliberately bomb-ridden Murrah Building or explosive-laden Twin Tower.
Earth has been and is being engineered for demolition.
I m sorry to be the one to tell you, but it s clearly true.
My point here, though, is to see it for what it is and make it a motivator!
Waiting around
and business as usual
are no longer an option.
HOPE AGAINST HOPE
~ TRUTH GIVES HOPE BECAUSE IT RULES!
This doesn t have to spell the end of everything, as awful as that all sounds. People who love you tell you the Truth. And love reigns.
But surgeons don t go to work until they know the full extent of the problem. Neither should we when it comes to the big picture.
We need to address each issue as they come up.
Understanding the endgame is essential to a full realization of what s going on.
I have a lot of theories as to why all this is transpiring and where each of us may be going. Number one is that our job here is to wake up, first and foremost, and then wake up everyone around us. But it s imperative people see the vast extent of the perfidy of this parasitic force destroying our planet.
FALSE FLAG EARTH AND THE WAR GODS
I use this analogy because of the wicked planned demolition aspect. Anyone reading this knows false flags have been perpetrated by rulers since time immemorial. It s virtually primordial evil to secretly do some evil deed yourself or have someone do it for you and blame someone else, all for a desired effect.
But this huge scam is admittedly off the charts.
Earth will survive their puny efforts. Humanity may not, at least here, until the earth recovers.
They say there are bases on Mars for just such emergencies. I don t know. But to deliberately bring on such catastrophic conditions is not an easy one for the lay unaware earth man to wrap his head around.
They say mega natural catastrophes have wiped out previous civilizations and thousands of animal species on earth. They ve even found evidence of a nuclear conflagration in ancient India, and it s theorized Atlantis and Lemuria had it out and that s how they came to an end.
It seems these warlike gods through the ages have a propensity for this type of wonton death-dealing and destruction. They really should find their own already decimated rock somewhere out there and fight it out between themselves and leave us the hell alone. Wouldn t you say?
ETERNITY RULES
If we re on to their scam, identify it, rise up in defiance of it and overcome it! Whatever form we take! Even if the whole place blows, you think that s the end?
No way!
Get over it! Fear of death is possibly the biggest con going!

How many parallel dimensional worlds

are right now spinning,

slipping and sliding around us?
Even our so called big brained physicists say at least 11.
You think that s all? (And btw, notice no one s calling them conspiracy freaks! Ha!)
Just wanted to get that death thing outta the way. We might just slide to a parallel earth that s in great shape while the perps are left here to suffer their own demise. Who knows? We re eternal spirit consciousness and can t be snuffed out.
8 SUICIDAL STEPS THEY RE TAKING TOWARDS HELL ON EARTH
Like you, I could spit nails over the current onslaught of horrific destruction being perpetrated by the insane powers that be. I don t think this can be screamed about enough. And more than that, we need to look the Endgame square in the face.
We ve gone over these before, but let s do a quick recap:
1. GEOENGINEERING AND TERRAFORMING.
Filling our skies with toxic metal oxide chemtrails to use weather as a force multiplier in their drive to control earth. This includes engineered sea-killing algae blooms, atmospheric heaters and electromagnetic warfare causing mass animal die-offs and creating more desert areas worldwide. Then they HAARP it all up and spin, crack or fry anything in their path. Sick f*ers.
2. GENETIC MODIFICATION OF ANYTHING THEY CAN GET THEIR HANDS ON .
Now it s trees and shrubs, along with fish, animals and insects in addition to genetically destroying the food chain. Don t forget, all this ultimately changes the human genome. It s pure disgusting insanity.
3. RELEASE OF PREVIOUSLY BANNED PESTICIDES AND HERBICIDES
that amongst other things is decimating the world s life-giving bee population, a sure indicator of an unsustainable food supply system.
4. MINDLESS MEDICATION AT ANY COST AND FOR ANY REASON.
Vaccines, drugs, poisoned water and foods and toxic air. All anti-life.
5. DELIRIOUS RAPING OF EARTH S RESOURCES ,
including poisoning the water table through fracking, killing the oceans with oil and waste, and putting banned toxic substances on it to boot to cover up their perfidy.
6. ELECTROMAGNETIC SOUP
is swirling around screwing with humanity, set deliberately on the same frequency as the human nervous system.
7. WAR AND MORE WAR.
Besides the rapacious and wonton mass destruction by more and more weapons technologies in the hands of mad war lords, the use of depleted uranium and other highly toxic materials is rendering huge areas of our planet unusable for generations to come, while horribly mutating babies and children.
8. THE NUCLEAR KILLSHOT :
If all that s not enough, why not build high profit poorly planned nuclear time bombs around the world producing enough nuclear waste to destroy the world hundreds of times over.
WHY?
This is where we need to really stand back and see what s really going on. We need to attack each of these issues any way we can, but obviously these idiots are in collusion with one another politically, financially, economically ~ and most of all, spiritually.
So why would anyone or anything behave so deliberately irresponsibly and destructively?
And don t give me that corporate bankster greed coverall.
Sure that s part of the cause and what s used to get the lower levels on board.
When you connect the dots you can see there s much more than that going on.
What s their end game?
They ve stored good non-modified seeds in a vault in Norway. The elites have their food and riches in giant underground vaults with accompanying bases. All documented.
So what s the plan? Just kill off the earth and this superfluous, unwanted 90+% population overflow they so disdain while they wait it out underground?
Are they that crazy?
Underground bunker or self-made tomb?
WE RE TALKING SICK HERE, FOLKS
Unfortunately what I m laying out here is documented. They have even hardly tried to hide it.
They just don t let it into mainstream consciousness as their media mongrel watchdogs keep everyone watching Disney froth or the phony political bullshit.
Very well orchestrated, but absolutely insane.
Machiavellian even falls short.
Satanic beyond your wildest dreams is more like it.
Where s this coming from?
Insane means unclean .
But more than that we re talking non human. That s why people can t grasp the depths or motivation behind all this. No, not everyone being used is in on the full plan or aware of that.
It s all compartmentalized.
This driving force to subdue our world into a totally controlled unit has been around for millennia.
From this beyond fascist order they hope to create, this pseudo-spiritual Satanic techno-race will want to no doubt conquer other races and planets and solar systems. This is what NWO insider spokes-scientist Michio Kaku calls a Type 2 civilization.
In fact, if you don t go along with it, Kaku labels you a terrorist. Sound familiar?
EPILOGUE
It s hard to believe we re on a planet with such psychopathic control freaks whose sole aim is domination for their selfish purposes. When the vast majority of the world are loving, caring and sharing compassionate individuals you have to consider this an invasive or mutant species that needs to be exposed and put in its place.
Instead the world has been carefully lulled into voluntary submission. Just as they designed. Their ultimate M.O. is for us to conform or die. Mostly die is how they want it. Those who remain they want to be transhuman .
In fact, they re so recklessly pursuing their megalomaniacal plan they don t care what humanity morphs into, as long as it s shrunken to a manageable half billion dumbed-down fully controllable droids.
All possible with genetic engineering, drugs and computer implant technology.
And driven by a deeply occult-scientific agenda.
NON COOPERATION AND RESISTANCE
ARE ESSENTIAL
So our job is to resist.
First wake up to the horrific reality that we re being deliberately killed off and then wake up as many others as possible.
I don t know about any cavalry coming but I do know it s a time of energetic change that will help more and more see what s going on and hopefully wake up out of slumber.
The responsibility is ours.
It will always remain ours.
That s the cycle we re on.
If you don t get it and respond you re doomed to repeat it till you do ~ in one form or another. And that to me makes total sense.
The Universe is intrinsically right and just.
If we didn t have free will life would be a drag.
And with free will comes a lot of messiness.
Enjoy it anyway! But let s get Love and Truth back in charge here, shall we?
Let s Put This in Perspective ~ They Can t Win Over Truth and Love
You really wonder how these anti-natural freaks can take themselves seriously. Just look at the magnificence of our Universe. It s beyond description.
Clearly forces play out that we re only slightly aware of.
But one thing we can be sure of ~ puny man or any other power-crazed entity is nothing to be feared.
We re inter connected with Something so much greater and profound we can rest assured all will come out for the better no matter what happens in the short term.
The current awakening is changing the entire dynamic on our planet by the hour. The matrix is coming down, which is why they re so frantically trying to slap supports for it everywhere.
There s a vibrational change that is exposing the Truth and accelerating drastic life changes all around us. This will no doubt change the course of all of their plans as everyone s perceptions will be changing as well.
In addition, when societies face these types of scenarios, from the decimation of the planet to draconian clamp downs, it always has a powerful kickback effect. When it starts to become so in-your-face obvious to a broader and broader swathe of people, the wake up accelerates exponentially.
We need to fan those flames of Truth and Freedom by feeding those awakening with empowering information!
Truth and Love always win in the long run. The test is within you and your life.
When you get it you ll change and be motivated to reach out to others. And on it goes.
Keep on, folks! We need to step on it in these final laps around the track. They re itching to pull the plug on the internet so get the word out!
Love, Zen

INTERNATIONAL WORKERS DAY: MUAMMAR QADDAFI ON DEMOCRACY IN INDUSTRY

April 30, 2012
Address by Colonel Muammar Qaddafi, Leader of the Revolution of the First of September, delivered on the 1978 International Workers Day celebrations in Tripoli, Libya.
“We celebrate today the first of May, the international workers day; but the real workers\’ day is the one on which all workers of the world are liberated from slavery and when they become partners instead of wage workers.
This should be the Workers International Day of Liberation throughout the world which deserves the true celebration.
What meaning does this celebration of world workers have so long as in every part of the world they are succumbed under servitude of the pay which controls their living and their freedom? Is there any freedom for the person who lives enslaved by another? Is there any meaning for the life of a person when all his material and necessary needs, his daily or monthly income and his children\’s living are all possessed by another person?
One\’s freedom is not complete until he is totally emancipated from all forms of pressure and oppression from whatever source they are practiced. That is to say when one is in complete control of all his needs, because he can never be free if any of his needs is possessed by others.
The genuine revolution eliminates all forms of exploitation on which the exploiting society is based including the Libyan society up to this moment. The bases of exploitation which deny the Libyan his freedom should be all destroyed.
Brothers, the revolution is not a military coup, nor the taking of seats from one group to hand them to another; but the revolution exposes the bases of oppression in society and destroys them. It attacks the fortresses of exploitation and is capable of destroying them. This is the revolution.
The revolution exposes the suppressing relations in the field of production as well as the unjust relations between people, and destroys these relations. This is what the revolution is about.
Any movement for change that does not go beyond depriving some of the seats [of power] or exchanging slogans and leaves the roots of exploitation in a society unchanged, then it is a fascist coup, a movement with a limited purpose and no historical impact on man\’s life.
In every place, man seeks liberty and is ready to die to achieve it. He has been struggling all through history in order to live happily, because for man to be happy he has to be free. He must be emancipated from those who enslave him in order to be free in his life, in what he eats, in what he dresses and in his house. This is the free man who ought to live with happiness.
All over the world, there are reformative and superficial attempts to satisfy the workers by allowing them to participate in the management or to have some of the shares of profit or by raising the minimum wage rate. Such attempts are illusive and merely aim at deceiving the workers.
WORKERS AS PARTICIPANTS IN MANAGEMENT
The conscious person does not accept such falsifications since these reformative attempts cannot be but a failure. The labourer should not participate in the management, he must be the manager. So the labourers, from their positions of production ought to take over the management.
If the best position for the labourers in the world now is to participate in the management… then let us first define who is the manager. He is the one who exploits the labourers and he exploits them by allowing them to participate in the management. So they should be the real managers, for the labourers ought to be free.
They are the majority in the world. Therefore, they should enjoy freedom and happiness. Who said that the labourers should live under exploitation all the time? They should be the managers with no other partners. The fake regimes which pretend progressiveness try to give labourers a share of the profit, but from where do these profits come? The labourers should have the full right in the profit share because it is the result of their hard work in the production process.
The aim of the centres of production in giving away any form of social benefits to the workers, directly or indirectly, is to make them forget about their full right in the profit to which they are fully entitled.
The worker is the producer and the right principle is that the one who produces is the one who consumes his production… but the workers produce and the other exploiting people consume their production, while they try to give the workers some of the profit share and the leftovers.
If the labourers do not manage all the centres of production, and consume their own production, they will remain exploited.
This call for the liberation of the labourers comes from Libya, the first Jamahiriya in the world. This would be a true liberation day, brothers, when the thousands in Libya become partners instead of wage workers . This would be the real day for celebration of the historical labour day.
NO DELEGATION IN DEFENDING FREEDOM
The resolutions of the people\’s conference to the effect of raising the minimum wage rate are to be implemented. Although the people\’s conferences have resolved in compliance with reality and in spite of the executive measures taken by the general people\’s committee and other committees, I hereby tell you not to rejoice for the rise in the minimum wage rate nor be satisfied with it or with sharing the profits or participating in the management; but the revolution should be carried on and your march should continue until the workers take over the management completely in all the institutes in which they work.
Any benefits that you acquire through a resolution or a legislation are considered as a favour by others given to you. A free man cannot live on a favour of another, because he will be the inferior .
However, the benefits you achieve by completely possessing the management where you are working or by obtaining your full share in the production, these can only be achieved by the popular revolution and not by a resolution or legislation, because both are subject to change or cancellation by the same body that has laid them or by a new body that replaces the old one.
In the Arab countries that used to be progressive one day or any other countries in the world, the workers lost all the benefits they gained in management and profit by a legislation or revolutionary resolution, when the revolutionary administration was over or replaced. No one can achieve freedom on behalf of someone else. One should struggle for his own freedom for which he may also die.
Therefore, all the benefits that I have just mentioned have to be in a workers movement and by popular revolution . However, this revolution movement should be fully aware and well organized because otherwise it would be anarchic. In anarchism one loses his freedom or allows others to deprive him of his freedom.
The movement of society is the movement of the Libyan people towards achieving the historical objectives of laying down the foundation of a new civilization .
The revolution should be launched from practical and political frameworks in order to achieve its objectives. The movement of the popular forces, like the workers, should also be well organized to get their own rights which they have been longing to achieve. It is high time for the oppressed and exploited to be liberated and to take their rights by means of a popular revolution.
DESTROYING THE OPPRESSING BASES, FOR MAN TO BE LIBERATED
Who condemned you to backwardness and poverty? Who condemned you to be an inferior class and others to be a superior class? Who decided to possess your needs? Of course, not God…God is Just. He can never condemn you to any of these miseries. It is the society of oppression and exploitation, the bases of which would be revealed by the revolution so that man can be free. It is time now for you to get consciously ready and well organized to have your full share of the production which you, yourself produce.
These new slogans are laid down before you to think about now . This call for freedom, freedom of the labourers should come out very loudly from the Jamahiriya so that the workers of the world can hear it. When the historical mission of the revolution is successfully accomplished, when you take the lead in getting your full rights , then the oppressed workers around us will do the same and take their positions in managing the production.
Then all the poor and oppressed labourers of the Arab Nation will be free. When the Arab human being, the Arab workers are liberated, they will be the master of the country… They will also constitute a force that is capable of confronting the enemy and defeating him, once they become free and have achievements to defend.
Therefore, as of today the labour day will have a different meaning. When the workers get their full share, consume what they produce, and manage all the stages in the production process, then they can celebrate their day.
The workers of the Libyan Jamahiriya have to accomplish this objective so that Libya can achieve its self-sufficiency and bridle the tongues which spread rumours and anti-propaganda against the Libyan workers to hinder the process of self achievements . You should not leave a gap in your revolution or give an excuse for the enemies of the workers .
I am sure you will never give them the chance if you start organizing yourself , as of today, in presenting a magnificent example for the oppressed workers of the Arab world. Then the exploiting, reactionary and imperialist forces and the enemies of the workers in the Arab world will realise the unique experience of Libya.
I have presented what I have said before you so that you shoulder the responsibility. I assure you that my duty and the duty of my colleagues who have led the revolution are only to participate with the people in order to liberate themselves and live a happy life.” ~ Muammar Qaddafi .
On September 1, 1978, responding to calls by the Revolutionary Leadership, workers throughout Libya seized factories and production sites removing government bureaucracy and private exploitationist administration, and set up popular administrations . The Libyan workers thus ended ages of slavery and became partners in production instead of wage earners .
On September 1, 1978, the struggle of the world\’s workers was crowned by a world accomplishment that has been the product of the struggle of the oppressed. This accomplishment is the true challenge to the forces of exploitation, and spells the end of all those who practiced cruelty and persecution since the middle ages by sapping the efforts of workers throughout the world.
On May 1st, 1982, Col. Qadhafi made a historic call to the workers of the world. The Libyan leader called on workers internationally to escalate their struggle. He declared:
“On this day we call on the workers of the world who are suffering from deceit, exploitation, oppression and slavery, to rebel against cruel social relations by seizing factories and production units to control their rights over production and form their people\’s congresses and committees . (\’ No democracy without popular congresses…Committees everywhere !\’) The outbreak of the workers revolution shall sweep the world, destroying forces of exploitation and oppression and raising the banner of the dictum ” Partners in production not wage-earners “, guided by the second chapter of the Green Book .”

18 YEAR OLD SHEPHERD SHOT BY ISRAELI SOLDIERS IN JORDAN VALLEY

April 29, 2012
Last Thursday 18 year old shepherd Yasir Sulaiman Sal man Najadah was shot in the chest by Israeli soldiers taking part in military training exercises near the Tyraseer training zone.
If one walks towards the Bedouin community of Wadi al-Maleh in the Jordan Valley, they will see one of the 67 blocks of concrete placed by Israeli military in the area, the words Danger ~ Firing Zone ~ Entrance Forbidden audaciously inscribed.
The village is only a few hundred meters away from an Israeli military base, and the villagers of Wadi al-Maleh are frequently endangered as Israeli soldiers carry out military training. In the past year, the village has lost two young men, both killed whilst shepherding as they inadvertently triggered unexploded ordnance.
I was standing in the field with 19 camels, said Yasir. According to Yasir, army jeeps typically comb the area to alert herders before shooting exercises begin however on April 19th, no warnings were issued before the firing of live ammunition began. Yasir was shot from a distance of approximately 1 to 1.5 kilometers, and he believes that the soldiers saw him before shooting.
He did not see the soldiers and only became aware of their presence after the shooting began; he believes they were behind a nearby hill. After the bullet entered his chest, Yasir walked to his home where he was then driven to the training base by his father for medical attention.
Israeli soldiers refused to treat him and denied fault in the shooting. It was nearly two hours before Yasir received medical treatment in Rafadia Hospital in Nablus.
Yasir spent 1 day in Rafadia Hospital and was then transferred to a hospital in Ramallah.
According to his doctor, Yasir is in stable condition but remains in the Palestinian Authority hospital ICU after the shooting.
Yasir is the eldest of eight children and left school after the 10 th grade to tend to the family s herd of camels and sheep which is the main source of income for his family. He says his father is too old to take care of the animals and is concerned that no one is tending to them while he is in the hospital.
Despite being shot, Yasir says he must return to the area surrounding the Tyraseer training zone for grazing because it is the only spring-time grazing near his village.
Aref Dyragma chief of council in Wadi al-Maleh, was one of the first persons to be informed about the attack. As Dyragma shows us around al-Maleh, he described how the Bedouins are exposed to systematic violence.
Life is like hell here , he said. We have no running water, no electricity and we are prohibited from building anything. Israel has taken control of all the natural water resources, which forces us to walk 15 kilometers to the city of Tamoun, where we can buy expensive water.
The violence used against Palestinians in the Jordan Valley is part of process of ethnic cleansing. 130 families from the area have received demolition and evacuation orders ~ but Dyragma ensures that they will stay.
We have no other choice ~ this our land and we cannot leave.

SHYLOCK IN YIDDISH

Sicilian Actor Al Pacino as Shylock .

April 28, 2012 Gilad Atzmon

Amidst the controversy concerning Israeli Habima Theatre participation in Shakespeare\’s Festival at the Globe, London, I found an old treatment of Shylock in Yiddish. It is slightly \’antisemitic\’ and even tasteless but also pretty funny….Maybe we do not need Habima after all..

PSYCHOPATHS IN POWER: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY IN CANADA

By Robin Mathews
April 22nd, 2012
It may not be poetic license or science fiction to say the core group in the Stephen Harper cabinet is made up of psychopaths.
ED: Considering Harper surrounds himself with almost clones or complete yes men, of course they are psychopath. Like to like!

.
Lisa Raitt can argue with passion that destroying the democratic bargaining rights of employees in Canada is an act of virtue. She seems to have convinced herself that by making it possible for twenty-year olds to fly to a Florida beach in Spring Break she is up-holding the most basic freedom of Canadians ~ which must come before all else. She seems to be showing us, also, that the lies of psychopaths know no limits.
And she is showing, as well, that the Harper Conservatives will appeal to the sleaziest self-interest of Canadians in order to erode the rule of law in the country and move it towards the condition of a police state.
Whatever else, we must realize the total strategy of the Harper government is a strategy of lies as I shall attempt to show. Members of cabinet don t just use a lie here and there to cover a blunder here and there. Rather, the goals sought are governed by an over-arching policy of lies ~ planned, prepared, and executed.
Policy is followed to invalidate Canadian freedom, to see it as obstructive of efficiency, and, ultimately, to repress any Canadian resistance to what is in fact a growing fascist state. Such a state unites private corporations and a governing elite into a ruling class supported by police and military forces ready and eager to erase violently any public resistance to elite policy.
Increasingly that kind of structure is multi-national. The sell-out of the democracy of Canadians is pursued on behalf of so-called global interests. The Harper forces assist in the destruction of Canadian industrial operations like Stelco and Electro Motive Diesel to serve U.S. masters. And the Conservative Party employs ~ more and more ~ U.S. masters of deceit to assist in its determination to win elections by any kind of dishonesty, fraud, or malpractice.
The Conservative Party strategy of lies is supported with depressing consistency by the Mainstream Press and Media which actively supports it or overlooks it as a silly fault of a government trying to do its best for Canadians.
Conservative policy is not confined, by any means, to the inner cabinet. There is a democracy-destroying culture of the government (illegitimately) in power, a strategy of lies.
In a recent conversation with an aide to a Conservative senator on the Energy and Environment committee, I witnessed that fact. We had a spirited conversation about the attack on environmental organizations by the Harper government. Did I know, she asked, that (charitable status organization) Tides Canada has many, many more employees than (charitable status organization) the Fraser Institute? (She gave me the exact numbers.)
I replied that Tides Canada lists all its donors. I reported to her that I have written to the Fraser Institute and asked for a list of its financial donors. The Fraser Institute refuses to reveal who pays for its operation ~ but the federal government continues to grant it charitable status. The aide with whom I was speaking expressed sudden surprise to hear my news. She can tell me the exact number of people employed by the Fraser Institute. But she doesn t know it keeps a tight lid on the names of its financial supporters, refusing to reveal to the public who donates. Quite simply, I didn t believe her.
The two poster boys for Psychopaths in Power are Stephen Harper and Peter MacKay ~ the two ends of the spectrum, one might say. They both have a basic characteristic of the psychopath.
Truth, for them, is a tactic to be used sparingly. Lies usually sound better. Both men will say anything to cover embarrassing truth ~ at the drop of a hat, as we say.
What a trustworthy looking pair!

Peter Mackay is the Mulroney esque end of the spectrum. He s expansive. He likes luxury. He s important (?). He deserves the best (he thinks). He will say anything ~ whether he s explaining his luxurious hotel accommodations, his rich use of the Royal Canadian Air Force as a taxi service, his commandeering of a search and rescue helicopter to deliver him from a fishing vacation, or the endlessly elastic costs of the non-existent F-35 warplane. On that subject he ll use anybody s figures he deems useful at the time. He s a fibber who runs off at the mouth. But he s fun . He s likeable . So was Lyin Brian Mulroney.

His Siamese twin is Stephen Harper. He, too, appears to believe lies sound better than the truth. So he avoids the truth when he can ~ which is frequently. But he is not fun . Many believe the depths of his will to deceive are almost bottomless.
Karlheinz Schreiber, lobbyist, arms-dealer, (now a convict in Germany) and much more, who was tangled with Brian Mulroney s destiny over decades, filed an affidavit in Ontario Supreme Court in the week of November 5, 2007. In it he made allegations which involved his relations with Mulroney as prime minister. And he claimed he had written to Stephen Harper about extradition attempts and that he had asked Mulroney to intercede with Harper on his behalf.
Schreiber was alleged, in the words of Wikipedia, (relating to the purchase of Airbus planes for Air Canada) to have arranged secret commissions to be paid to Brian Mulroney . There has never been any evidence produced to substantiate the allegation .
Very clearly, the Schreiber allegations of 2007 focused the relation of Brian Mulroney and Stephen Harper. Closer examination might prove embarrassing. Stephen Harper quickly announced a Public Inquiry into the relation of Brian Mulroney and Karlheinz Schreiber. Harper chose Conservative university president David Johnston to set the terms of the Inquiry. Johnston, in effect, ruled out any serious approach to the subject of the purchase of Airbus planes for Air Canada. Johnston was appointed Governor General of Canada shortly after.
Mr. Justice Jeffrey Oliphant, appointed Inquirer, observed the limits of the Inquiry, judged the testimony of Brian Mulroney not believable, and was unable (as he saw the matter) to investigate the most serious allegations in the whole long and expensive affair. By deft manipulation ~ which some Canadians might believe desecrated Canadian justice and fairness ~ Stephen Harper disposed of the Karlheinz Schreiber/Brian Mulroney/Stephen Harper problem without ever permitting the key allegations against Brian Mulroney to be fully and fairly examined.
On the election-spending fraud of the 2006 election, Stephen Harper knew nothing (?). Funds flowed through 68 Conservative constituency offices, and he knew nothing about it. Though the Conservative Party admitted guilt and paid a fine for enormous fraud in the democratic process, the leader of the Conservative Party knew nothing about the fraud.
The Robocall Scandal of the 2011 election ~ which was nationwide, planned, organized, all-out ~ happened without his knowledge. He went so far as to state publicly that it had nothing to do with Conservative Party headquarters. How did he know? If the Robocall Scandal happened without his knowledge, how does he know Conservative Party Headquarters knew nothing about it?
On the matter of the F-35 warplane anticipated purchase, he had to know the difference between the estimates of all government-related authorities in the matter of the F-35 and what he told Canadians in the 2011 campaign, giving a different figure that was flatly untrue. Those who allege he purposefully lied to Canadians during that campaign cannot be convincingly contradicted.
He juxtaposes his truths in ways which are often offensive. Relations with China and the Harper government get closer and closer. China is a despotism. Its industrial capacity is supported by near slave-labour conditions. China s response to dissent is jail without trial when it isn t outright violence and slaughter. The decent mind boggles when it thinks of the ordinary lives of tens of millions of Chinese people. To Stephen Harper, China is fine.
But Socialist Cuba must be ostracized, cast out, kept from the Summit of the Americas even though all countries but the U.S. want Cuba included. Cuba offends Stephen Harper s democratic principles, according to Harper himself.
Democratic principles? No.
As with the Kyoto Accord and almost every other policy of importance, Harper s Cuba policy is made in Washington and in the offices of Goldman Sachs.
The only time in recent history that Cuba could be placed in the same category as present China on the matter of human rights was in the period of Cuban despotism and terror fully supported by the U.S.A. before the arrival of the Castro government.
Stephen Harper s apparent lying process is very different from that of Peter MacKay. Stephen Harper gives every indication of preparing lies. He appears to know he is uttering them. They don t flood from him the way Peter MacKay s lies do. That is why Harper is an um speaker. He ums , it may be argued, to pretend he doesn t know what he is going to say next. Harper pushes an um along his sentences. He doesn t want his lies, an analyst might say, to sound glib. He wants them to sound thoughtful, shaped as he goes, and so he ums and ums his way through sentences.
He might be said by experts to be the other end of the psychopath spectrum from Peter MacKay. He wants to look solid, dependable, measured. He wants to use his power effectively in his service of the big corporations. He wants the lie to become the truth ~ because he speaks it. He wants to look kind as he removes human rights and democratic protections from Canadians. But his long term lying is beginning to be evident.
Consider CBC. Consider the attack on environmental safety and groups advocating preservation of the environment.
James Moore, Heritage Minister, led what I believe is a long trajectory of lying about the CBC. If true, his behaviour supports the idea that lying is a significant strategy in long-term Harperite policy.
Mr. Moore first showed great enthusiasm for the CBC, suggesting it would not face a cut in budget. Immediately after the (illegitimate) election of 2011 he remarked that the government would maintain or increase support for the CBC . Then, months later, he admitted that in the overall 5% cut in the federal budget the CBC would have to carry its share of cost.
Months later when the budget was finally presented and examined, cuts to the CBC came, superficially, to more than 10%, and, arguably, when all losses are figured in, to nearly 20%. The Harper private corporate forces want to destroy public broadcasting in Canada. The process has long been worked out I believe, and a trail of lying ~ already begun ~ will lead to achievement of the goal.
The greatest pattern of lies and denials of fact by Harper and his brood relate to the environment.
They are completely complicit with what might be called the Goldman Sachs/large corporation denial of climate change, of Fukushima dangers, and of present ravages by industrial and military pollution of the environment.
From the time when the Liberals were in majority power, the Harper Conservatives have carried the torch for what is ~ despite cosmetic policies of sustainability ~ a general, North American, wealthy elite denial of present and future dangers to human life on the planet.
The lying that has been unrelieved is now united with an open attack upon democratic freedoms and legal behaviour.
The slander against environmental groups with charitable status and the millions of dollars to be spent to investigate whether those organizations have been violating the no political action clause is a hoax. For the Harper government is not consistent enough to attack reactionary organizations with charitable status. There has been no mention of investigation of the Fraser Institute, Preston Manning s organization, or others of the kind that visibly advocate on behalf of Conservative government policies and philosophy.
The same may be said for the new environmental review legislation. Huge corporations involved in the activities ~ whether in direct exploitation of the environment or in sustainability and community concern groups ~ are treated as solemn, objective, publicly responsible organizations faced with rabid, undemocratic, secretly financed, near terrorist organizations called environmental concern groups.
The lies about the status of participants in the argument over environmental protection are not only supported by the Harper government but created and circulated by it. The lies are intended to create a long-term Orwellian false reality. As the public comes to accept it, military and police forces can be used to destroy violently any attempt at democratic expression.
And where are the Mainstream Press and Media editorial writers and columnists in all this sordid history?
(A) Saying nothing.
(B) Avoiding the subject.
(C) Occasionally slightly perturbed ~ but almost never doing in-depth coverage in order to inform Canadians of the truth.
(D) Or as is the case with Globe and Mail columnist Gary Mason, they reveal what seems to be a parroting of the arguments made by the Harper Reactionaries and their corporate friends. Doing the job? Covering up as directed? Producing more media sleaze to bamboozle readers?
In his Globe column (April 19, 2012, A17) ~ A burden lifted but opposition remains , Gary Mason wakens the questions about himself that were asked by Marc Garneau of Peter MacKay.
Can Gary Mason read? Can he understand the world he is in?
Approving of the new, narrowed Harper environmental review policy that cuts out the provinces, Mason pretends that the people of the provinces may not have distinctly different concerns than the Harper government in Ottawa and may want a provincial platform to express them.
Democracy demands the participation of people concerned with policy measures taken on their behalf. In a democracy, governments must balance the power of large private corporations with wide open space for members of the population to be heard. Mason believes that dozens and dozens of environmental groups making essentially the same point . Merely drags out the process .
But dragging out the process is an important democratic activity. It happens in Parliament all the time in order to focus the attention of the population. It is a democratic political activity intended to inform a large public. It must be protected. Gary Mason opts for fascist efficiency ~ which is not efficiency at all but destructive policy to serve wealthy interests over the needs of the democratic population.
Since the reviews (in Mason s mind) are undertaken merely to find if environmental damage, narrowly defined, may happen, Mason cheer-leads for Stephen Harper. There is no reason why so many projects need to go though a two-step procedure , Mason avers. That is a way of saying there is no reason why democracy should be in place to serve the population when destroying democracy would be much more efficient for private, wealth-gathering corporations.
Cutting out environmental groups unless they can prove they are directly affected isn t entirely evil , Mason instructs us.
But a tanker accident near Alaska can affect the lives of Ontarians.
A pipeline accident harming rivers may affect fish and the fishing industry in a huge area.
Environmental disasters in one place can affect the whole world ~ which may be why Gary Mason never mentions the Fukashima disaster and its growing threat. If he did, he could never again talk the nonsense he does about those directly affected .
To suggest that environmental reviews are only concerned with those directly affected , those living near proposed activity, is simply fraudulent.
Gary Mason pushes the fraudulent claim.
It is the new Orwellian position of the Harper government, cheered and urged on by Gary Mason in Canada s national newspaper .
God help us.
To read columns like the Mason column in the Globe and Mail is to invite feelings of nausea and revulsion and anger.
Those must be the feelings of as many Canadians as possible. They must find a way to organize and to confront, effectively ~ and to turn back ~ the long-term policy of the Harper government ~ the lying policy ~ the policy that is intended to make lies the truth in Canada.
