Stephen Harper Lies To His Conservative Base And Lies To All Canadians



 Written by Grant G

Stephen Harper in 2011 promised income splitting as soon as the budget is balanced, so why has Canada`s mainstream media fallen asleep and not reported Stephen Harper`s latest betrayal and whopper lie?

Stephen Harper has slashed the income splitting measures he promised Canadians, when Harper proposed income splitting on the condition of a balanced budget in 2011 the benefit was supposed to amount to a $7000,00 yearly benefit....That benefit has been capped at $2000,00 yearly benefit, those who qualify(which I certainly don`t qualify for by a country mile) will now have to collect that benefit for 4 years to see that $7000,00 dollars, clearly that is a blatant lie..

Let me be clear, I totally disagree with income splitting, it rewards only15% of the population, that would be the wealthiest 15% of Canadians, the one group that needs no financial assistance, story after story about the growing gap between the haves and the have nots, medium income in 2014 is 17% dollars less than it was in 1970, and that`s not even adjusted for inflation...

Those who won`t qualify is separated parents, single parents, gay parents, only extremely wealthy will qualify and how shameful is Canada`s media, they all know that income splitting helps only the wealthy, every newscast I listened and read made the assertion that by lowering the income splitting benefit from $7000,00 to $2000,00 makes it all better, they claim that amount of money($2000,00) is hardly worth mentioning, ...Those statements show how completely out of touch with the majority of Canadians they are, how they only represent the corporate and well-to-do demographic..!

Not only will the wealthy get $2000,00 dollars they will also receive increased child benefits too.

No increase for those with disabilities, no increase to a meager old age Canada pension, Stephen Harper is raising the eligibility threshold to collect OAS to 67 years of age, 2 years longer for us peasants to collect that meager pension...

Stephen Harper stated in 2011 that income splitting would only come in when the budget is balanced, no sooner, no later...

I have a question for Stephen Harper....If Canada falls back into deficit will this income splitting measure be cancelled?

A bold headline atop this Straight Goods article, perhaps you are wondering what the other big whopper lie is?, what did Stephen Harper say in 2011...

"A Conservative Government will bring in income splitting as soon as the budget is balanced" snip

I have a newsflash for all you Canadians reading this story...The budget is not balanced this year, it may be balanced and or in surplus next year(do to the deliberate timeline delay on every multi-$billion dollar military procurement, from jets to helicopters to transport vehicles and particularly those photo-op ship building contracts announced in 2011, not one piece of steel has been cut, no monies handed out, zip, zoodle, nada, not a damn red cent..

And perhaps you doubters of The Straight Good`s assertion are wondering why I`m saying the budget isn`t balanced...

It wasn`t me that said the 2014 budget isn`t balanced, Stephen Harper said it yesterday during his nauseating tax cut/income splitting photo-op...

Stephen Harper took a handful of questions...A Bloomberg reporter asked the 4th question...

"Sir what is your outlook for the budget balance with these cuts in place, do you have any concerns about eliminating the surplus you budgeted for this year"

Stephen Harper answered...and I quote......

"We didn`t budget a surplus for this year, we`re planning on running a deficit this year 2014/ 2015....It`s next year 2015 2016 we`re planning a surplus..We`re not planning on advancing that, we are budgeting to run a small deficit this year and a small surplus next year" snip

This income splitting is retroactive to this year, a year which is in deficit!!!!! remember this statement from Harper..


"A Conservative Government will bring in income splitting as soon as the budget is balanced"  Stephen Harper snip



So here`s the deal, here is the elephant in the room that all the mainstream media missed...

Stephen Harper is borrowing money against our Canadian accounts to advance monies to his Conservative base, that`s right folks, Stephen Harper is borrowing money, adding to Canada`s debt to give money to the wealthiest people in Canada...

Stephen Harper is a liar, he said no income splitting until the budget is balanced, Harper`s own words prove him to once again be a bald-faced LIAR

Those want to see the smoking gun proof....watch this video courtesy of CPAC(Canadian public affairs channel)

 http://www.cpac.ca/en/programs/primetime-politics/episodes/90004205


The question and offending answer comes just past the 27 minute mark in the above link, ..It`s Stephen Harper`s answer to the question from the Bloomberg reporter .....

http://www.cpac.ca/en/digital-archive

How come no one in the mainstream media is reporting on this Stephen Harper lie, the budget isn`t balanced for 2014/2015...Therefore Harper is lying to all Canadians...Harper is adding to Canada`s debt to give the richest among us more walking around money..

Stephen Harper`s Corporate Canada



Written by Grant G




Let me first say that I am Canadian, a proud Canadian but as of late a disgruntled Canadian, I`m troubled seeing our values slowly eroded, disgusted with the corporate takeover and consolidation of Canada`s main stream media, even the CBC seems to have lost it`s wide analytical lens, cowtowing to a corporate controlled Conservative government, perhaps fearing financial retribution, perhaps waiting for a change of government, one can only pray that fear has only temporarily trumped journalistic integrity...

Chest pumping bravado circumvented facts and I don`t condone violence, wrong is wrong, murder by suicide is the coward`s way out........It takes real courage to rush in and confront gunfire and Mr. Nathan Cirillo didn`t deserve to die on home soil, no one deserves to die on Canadian land and in writing this I can`t help feeling that we the people are nothing but cannon fodder....

I left for Vancouver Island in late August having never even heard of the group? ISIS and by the time August had ended Isis was the world`s greatest threat, they had in their possession tanks, rockets, stinger missiles, assault rifles, armoured vehicles and strangely enough, white tennis shoes and more money than many countries.....Wow, how did ISIS attain all those American weapons...

Osama Bin Laden, a Saudi billionaire`s son, a one-time American ally, let me be clear, I do not know what drew Bin Laden to Afghanistan but I do know, the world knows that Bin Laden was fighting the Russians, he was hell bent on keeping Russian flags from being raised on Afghanistan soil, he hid in rugged alpine terrain where he waged a stealth war, there`s an old saying, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" a saying America knows too well, weapons, rocket propelled grenades and other military arms were gifted to Bin Laden,  the mighty USA armed Osama Bin Laden, after all, the cold war was still in play....Then...Then Russia conceded, conceded not only Afghanistan but the cold war too, Russia was terrified with the nuclear armament build up, they blinked first, they saw something in Ronald Regan, I believe they saw mutual Armageddon....

Bin Laden was now of no use to America, Bin Laden who?, perhaps that`s what spurned him to plan and execute the 911 terror attack.

Americans have such short memories, so does corporate oil media, 20 of the 21 911 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, Bin Laden`s birth country, those facts were well known before George Bush`s invasion of Iraq, the entire world and half of the American public knew this to be true, the other American half knew it too only they didn`t care.

20 of the 21 911 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia, a plot orchestrated by America`s one time ally Osama Bin Laden, there was no 911 connection to Iraq and the Whitehouse knew it however, Dick Cheney and big oil Haliburton needed an excuse to get a foothold in Iraq`s oil fields, the intelligence was deliberately flawed, no yellowcake, no nuclear facilities, no mobile biological killing machines, no weapons of mass destruction and yes, Saddam Hussein was a nasty piece of work, a brutal dictator, he was also known to America`s CIA, the Whitehouse, and at one time known as "The enemy of my enemy is my friend".....The united States of America armed Saddam Hussein with American munitions to fight America`s other Middle East foe Iran....Oh indeed, these are no secrets, every educated journalist and news outlets knows this to be true, American intelligence was also aware that Saddam Hussein didn`t like the Kurds, and more, the USA knew about Saddam Hussein`s nasty gassing of the northern Kurds, they said nothing, didn`t interject it was business as usual because Saddam was still engaged with Iran, that little secret America put on the backburner, perhaps in anticipation of using this knowledge at a future date......Which they did along with a bunch of poorly masqueraded fairy tale intelligence...

100,000`s of Iraqis were slaughtered in that false flag war, 100,000`s of Iraqis who have brothers, mothers, daughters, sons who wept as their beloved kin died needlessly....

A multi $trillion dollar war, American conmen claimed the USA would be greeted as liberators, flowers and hugs, kisses and tears of joy would be the order of the day, it didn`t happen, insurgency and IEDs were soup de jour, for years,......One military man before the false flag war against Iraq happened warned of that exact scenario, told the Whitehouse that a 600,000 man army would be required to secure Iraq after the invasion, he was blackballed, silenced and sent on his way....

America broke the Geneva Convention, innocent Iraqis were tortured, prisoned, killed, water boarded, everything was on the table, all that torture didn`t stop the insurgency, the car bombs, suicide bombers, Iraqis wanted America gone, the futility raged for years, death tolls mounted and for at least 9 years the world was told that America was training a massive 100,00 strong Iraqi army...

An American appointed Iraqi president was inserted, Shiites and Sunni`s, Saddan Hussein was a Sunni, ....The Sunni made up only 1/5th of the Iraqi population, positions of power in Iraq were filled with minority Sunni, ....Sunni hated the Shiites, these different sects have been fighting a secular war for thousands of years....Nouri al-Maliki, the American inserted president of Iraq reversed the roles, the majority Shiites now occupied positions of power, the minority Sunnis were now an endangered species in Iraq....BAM...The applecart was overturned..  

"MISSION ACCOMPLISHED"....We were told the 100,000 strong Iraqi army was now trained and ready to protect their own country so who the hell is ISIS?

Who is ISIS.......They were trained by the CIA in Jordan, in Turkey, they were armed with American weapons, funded by America`s longtime ally Saudi Arabia(a country that averages 2 beheadings per week), the same country where 20 of the 21  911 bombers originated...why, why why....Syria, America`s newest foe in the Middle East, ....Assad, ...America wanted Assad dead, wanted his oil refineries shut down, the USA wanted to bomb Assad into oblivion however there was a problem, the world wouldn`t except another American war,...Bring on ISIS, or IS, or ISIM, call them what they are, this band of black balaclava Nike tennis shoe wearing radicals who were supposed to cause havoc in Syria....Well well well, this out of the blue well funded and well armed group of bought mercenaries had ideas of their own, forget Syria, they changed the playbook, they instead of going into Syria marched into Iraq, gathered up gobs of American abandoned armaments and what the hell happened to the 100,000 strong ready to stand on their own Iraqi army...?...They laid down their guns and went home..

"ISIS IS A BOON TO AMERICAN DEFENCE CONTRATORS"

Defense contractors who under Barack Obama`s tutelage found their pockets to be empty of money, I`m still not sure how or who(Republicans) pilfered 400 stinger missiles that magically found their way into ISIS`s hands...

 These facts are known to be true by all the major news outlets in Canada.....

Canada`s corporate media has engaged in dumbing down journalism, no real truth telling exists, the National Post, Globe n Mail, Corus radio is wholly owned by the Harpercon corporate masters, don`t even get me started on Global, CTV...As for Sunnews, they aren`t a news station, they are Stephen Harper`s spindoctoring messengers, scantily clad girls who could almost pass for ladies of the night and or crackheads..

I mourn for all those killed needlessly, the Surrey Six slayings, Ian Bush...terrorist criminal gangs known as Angels, Scorpians, Triads, operate with impunity, these self radicalized gangs thrive in Canada year in and year out, with impunity they walk our streets, hundreds of gang killins in Canada yearly, innocent bystanders slaughtered regularly, drugs flow freely into out ports, into our jails, business as usual because politicians aren`t the target, Canadians are the targets, unelected Canadians die needlessly day after day and it`s only business as usual...

Is that not terrorism, if the law, CSIS, RCMP, border guards, prison guards can`t even stop the flow of drugs into our prisons what makes anyone think lone-wolf terrorism can be stopped, please please please somebody tell me what terrorism is, ...Is it CSIS spying on Environmental groups, is it Enbridge funding CSIS and RCMP get togethers behind closed doors, Enbridge providing food, drink and monies for Canada`s CSIS...This is wrong, it`s not an appearance of conflict it is direct conflict..

Canada`s security and intelligence agencies along with Stephen Harper`s tyranny have merged with corporate globalists, combined into an all powerful toxic sludge, corporate profits above Canadian values, oil before life, profits trump clean air, pure water, propaganda ad nauseum reverberates, beats like an drum 24/7....It never stops, lies, spin, distortion and the omission of factual data, that is the new Canada under Harper`s guidance, our Supreme Court being undermined, scientists muzzled, nary a media column on 8000 scientists around the world pleading in an open letter to Stephen Harper to stop the muzzling, the Canada I once knew would be outraged, newspapers would have headlined that story for days in the not too distant past...

Every hard fought Canadian democratic principle is under Conservative Governmental assault

I am Canadian....I deplore violence..Terrorism is wrong, even when the Federal Government engages in it....It`s still wrong and where are the ethical journalistic voices...where!

Who killed 6 RCMP in Alberta a few years back...Who killed 3 RCMP members in eastern Canada recently....Who killed a hockey mom in Newton..Who killed 50 Canadians in British Columbia last year....Who damn it! who!....Terrorists that's who...

We are cannon fodder....Lac Megantic.....A town vapourized, near 50 people turned to ashes, the cause identified early on, no, it was not as Ezra Levant and Greg Renouf claimed, it wasn`t First Nations, it wasn`t eco terrorists, it was a corporate terrorist, railway regulations gutted at the behest of lobbyists, trains loaded with dangerous cargoes reduced to a crew of one, engineers forced to work long hours, sleep deprived and infamous DOT rail cars laden with oil, bombs by any other name, DOT rail cars not designed to carry explosive liquids, puncture prone rolling sardine cans....

Canada`s media over the last week using phrases like this to describe a couple of lost suicidal killers...."The day that changed Canada forever...A day that will be remembered for decades...The day Canada lost its innocence"

The Lac Megantic  preventable rail disaster is the day that Canadians will remember forever

Canada lost its innocence when Stephen Harper got his corporate majority..

DOT cars are banned in many places, Cherry Point refinery in Washington state will no longer allow DOT rail cars..

The railway company that was responsible for the worst terrorism in Canada, the vapourization of Lac Megantic, the railway company that claimed bankruptcy protection to avoid lawsuits has re-emerged and wants to again run oil laden DOT cars through Lac Megantic Quebec, now that`s terrorism!

Business as usual, with a stroke of a pen Stephen Harper could have all the rolling DOT bombs removed from our rails, railway companies could have industry work 24/7 7 days a week building new safer rail cars, Harper won`t because all Stephen Harper cares about is oil...

Corporate media and the Conservative Government have only two things to offer Canadians...Propaganda and...

A cold blank stare.....

http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.ca/2013/07/canadas-cold-blank-stare.html



P.S.....All Terrorism is wrong, religious terrorism is wrong,  the voting booth, that is where and how Canadians are going to change the direction our country is heading, the internet is the last bastion of true journalism, it must not be curtailed, freedom of speech must be protected, hate speech is already illegal in Canada,.....Propaganda disguised as news must be outlawed, Hate speakers like Ezra Levant too must be removed from fake news outlets(Sunnews)....Lastly, my condolences to all the mourning families who lost loved ones through terrorism, murder and violence, and a heartfelt thank you to all the brave gladiators who protect us...Military, RCMP, Security Guards....

B.C. Liberals Corrupt LNG PLOT, .........Exposed


Written by Grant G


A couple of months on Vancouver island, no internet, no cable, merely AM radio, .....What the hell is going on around here, !!!!!!!

Houston, we have a problem...,....Actually British Columbia has a problem, we have no media, fully complicit in accepting, regurgitating and passing on to a sheepish public pure bafflegab, that is no understatement, ....Where to start..

GHG emissions, .....1 LNG plant emitting green house gasses at the lowest level, at the level of the most efficient LNG plant in the world 1 LNG plant will emit the GHGs equivalent to the emissions of 3 million automobiles....5 medium LNG plants would emit greenhousegasses equivalent to 15 million automobiles, ......at that level these plants will pay no carbon tax, only if they pollute more than that of the level of the most efficient LNG plant(3 million tonnes per year) will they have to purchase carbon offsets and or pay into a industry innovation fund?????

Our BC enshrined in law GHG reduction targets require British Columbia to reduce greenhousegas emissions by 33% over 2007 levels by 2020....

5 LNG plants will triple British Columbia`s current GHG levels, .......Are you listening BC media, this corrupt BC Liberal government will continue to gouge BCers for carbon tax money(returned to the wealthy and corporations as tax cuts) while our provincial GHG levels triple....

Christy Clark, ......You blathering idiot, expecting the public to believe you, referencing reducing China`s emissions by claiming we`re reducing their coal use when at the same time we are selling them coal..

I have a question for you Christy Clark....Are you high on magic mushrooms? LSD?...

I have a question for the media.....What is your price, how much money does it require for you all to turn in to idiot sounding boards, echo chamber for stupid dumbass buffoons!...My gawd, why aren`t you laughing at the BC Liberals?..

Here this you effing media fools....1 LNG plant will add the emissions of 3 million automobiles, 3 million automobile emissions pouring in to Kitimat, in to Prince Rupert......oh indeed, don`t get me started with carbon offsets, our Great Bear rainforest .........If one could claim our Great Bear rainforest as a carbon offset(if)...The Great Bear Rainforest in it`s entirety per year is only 1.2 million tonnes of carbon capture...and no, the Great Bear Rainforest CAN`T be claimed as a carbon offset!...

Why aren`t you laughing at the BC Liberals, ?....Nobody is buying the bullshit, no one, not even the BC Liberal supporters..!

Honesty, a value lost, nowhere to be seen in British Columbia, if our BC Liberal government was honest they would just tell the truth, LNG plants will blow our B.C. emissions off the chart...cancel the carbon tax, cancel the carbon tax tax cuts, game over, no other argument applies, no bafflegab, no bullshit, no spin, just spit out the truth....

Will the public be forced to pay a carbon tax as BC`s emission double, triple....square pegs in a round hole and I can`t believe my ears, the media, Global, CTV, even the CBC sit there regurgitating this crappolla , you couldn`t sell this lie to a kindergarten child, no one is that stupid....yes BC mainstream media, you aren`t that stupid either, just bought and sold like cheap junk bonds, ...

Mike De Jong is lying, Rich Coleman is lying, Christy Clark is lying, ......

Mike De Jong claims that a 3.5 percent tax on profits on a medium LNG plant will bring British Columbia $800 million per year(after build costs are recouped) ...Wrong...The current world LNG export market is 170 billion dollars per year(that was when LNG was trading for $18 dollars per BTU in Japan, current price is 12$ per BTU), that is from all the world`s LNG plants......

Do the math people.... Mike De Jong is claiming British Columbia will collect $800 million per year at the 3.5% taxation level......???.....That means that a medium sized LNG plant must be making $23 billion dollars on LNG per year, that would be $23 billion dollars in pure profit....Let me remind you that the current LNG market for all the world is less than $170 billion dollars...Are you telling us that 1 medium BC LNG plant will take 17% of the world market?....5 medium British Columbia LNG plants are going to acquire 80% of the world LNG export market?????

The numbers don`t add up, not even close, 1 medium LNG plant over 30 years is going to achieve $700 billion dollars in profit ?......5 medium sized LNG plants making over $100 billion dollars in pure profit, pure year, Total sales would have to be in the $Trillions ? per year

HA HA, ......Hello Keith Baldrey, hello Vaughn Palmer, are you awake, alive, or are you both in a coma?

PETRONAS.....hmmm....The Malaysian government, the project PETRONAS is proposing is made up of equity partners...They are as follows.....The government of Brunei....Japex(Japanese government).....The Government of India...Sinopec(Chinese Government).....

These equity partners are taking(committed to taking) 70% of the gas, leaving only 30% of the gas being liquefied for sale, ..that 30% is in PETRONAS`s hands for potential sale to cash buyers...

Riddle me this media.....Why would Brunei, India, Japan, China, Malaysia pay $billions of dollars for an LNG plant only to pay market rate for the gas?, they can buy market rate gas from Australia, from Qatar, from Russia.....Equity partners do not invest $billions to pay ther same price as joe public...

And..

There is no guarantee that the time PETRONAS finishes building their plant that the equity partners will take all the gas...However, as it stands now only 30% of the natural gas PETRONAS liquefies is for sale and subject to taxation..hello Vaughn Palmer, ask some questions and perhaps even a follow-up question...Sheesh..

How many more leads do you media need....These LNG plants proposed are to be built on the coast, guess where the mainframes are to be built, fabricated, modularized, ....That`s right friends, 90% of the mainframe for the LNG plants are to be built in South Korea in modular form and barged to British Columbia... Why am I mentioning this?...Because we in Canada and British Columbia are going to be allowing $billions of dollars of LNG infrastructure built in South Korea to be written off against BC and Canada taxes????

You don`t have to believe me, believe British Gas....

("BG intends to build a facility on Ridley Island capable of producing 21 million tonnes of LNG a year. Called Prince Rupert LNG, it would be built overseas in modules and shipped to Prince Rupert for assembly.
 Even so, the plant would create 3,500 jobs during construction,

 250 permanent direct jobs and another 250 spinoff jobs.

 BG says it is planning to build it in two phases, beginning in 2016.
The first phase — two seven-million-tonne-a-year processing units, or trains — is to be completed by 2021" )


_______________

Do you need more, PETRONAS has a problem, a big problem, they want to dredge the Skeena river estuary....meaning the end of BC`s second most productive salmon river, ....PETRONAS wants a free pass from the federal environmental assessment, they have already received a free pass on our provincial environmental assessment....Remember?

Remember when Christy Clark announced that LNG plants wouldn`t require an environmental assessment, that is still in play...Christy Clark had to backtrack(verbally) as First Nations flipped out after hearing that...

______________________

A group of B.C. officials has been kicked out of a First Nations forum on liquefied natural gas over the government’s decision to exempt most of the gas produced in the province from mandatory environmental assessment.

Chief Sharleen Gale of the Fort Nelson First Nation, organizer of the summit in the northeast corner of the province, asked the bureaucrats to leave and escorted them out.

“There was no consultation as far as changing that policy,” said Chief Terry Teegee of the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council, which represents eight First Nations communities in northern B.C. “We were blindsided.”

Cheryl Casimer, an executive of the First Nations Summit, called the revisions “another unacceptable example of government once again attempting to water down and minimize its consultation and accommodation obligations with our communities.”

Earlier this week, the Liberal government passed an order in council that means, as of April 28, natural gas plants that produce so-called “sweet gas” will no longer face an automatic environmental assessment. According to figures from the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission, that would account for about 99 per cent of the natural gas produced in the province.

Environment Minister Mary Polak said processing plants will still be subject to an approval process overseen by the commission. The revisions eliminate duplication, she said.

http://westcoastnativenews.com/b-c-government-officials-have-been-kicked-out-of-a-first-nations-forum-on-lng/

(Do you see the highlighted section above, a corrupted oil n gas commission has been given the power to yea and nay environmental approvals!!)
____________________

PETRONAS wants to dredge the Skeena river, PETRONAS has been offered a free pass from the province on the environmental assessment, ...Just like the province green-lighted Tesako`s prosperity mine project, a project so environmentally destructive even the Federal Government rejected it, rejected it twice...

Where the hell is the media, ask some effing questions,.....These BC Liberals don`t need to be mollycoddled they need to be questioned, as in an inquisition!....

Bottom line on this LNG scam.... Greenhouse gas emissions from these LNG plants will double to triple BC`s entire provincial emission total, no mandated by law targets will ever be met, no carbon offsets large enough exist anywhere in the world....And as for the so-called industry innovation fund, call it what it is, industry filling industry`s own piggybank....News flash, there is no scientific way to reduce natural gas emissions, can`t be scrubbed, or buried, science, pure science.....

The money the BC Liberals are claiming we will receive from a 3.5% tax will never accrue, never, I dare any accountant to prove me wrong...And....It will take more than a decade for these companies to recoup their build costs, their double and triple over budget build costs, ..These would be the south Korean built modules, foreign built modules written off against Canadian taxes...

Christy Clark...Mike De Jong..Rich Coleman..Shirley Bond will be long gone before British Columbia realizes they have been duped...

_____

The Petronas EIS dated Feb. 2014 lists CO2 emissions at 5.28 million tonnes (MT) for an LNG annual output of 19.2 MT, which is a ratio of 0.275. Even if ratio is 0.22, as they are now claiming, that equals 4.22 MT CO2 per year.

Let's put this in perspective. If Burrard Thermal, which Christy liked to tout as a "major polluter", ran as a standby plant producing 900 MW 15% of the year, annual CO2 would be 0.6 MT.

If a $1.5 billion gas-fired power plant was built instead of $8 billion Site C, annual CO2 emissions to produce 5,100 GWh/yr would be 1.9 MT. Yet the gov't has outlawed such a plant under the Clean Energy Act due to its GHG emissions! Yet this same gov't had no issue modifying the Clean Energy Act to allow LNG terminals to burn all the gas they want. The hypocrisy is astounding

Poverty Breeds Healthcare Expenses



Written by Mark Taliano



The corporatist narrative informs us that freedom is blind attachment to the dictates of opaque supranational stealth agreements that supersede and obviate national legislation, rules, and regulations.

It tells us that tribunals outside of the reach of Canada's judiciary are to be trusted, and that investor-rights, even when the investor is a foreign country, are more important than national rights.
Totalitarian corruption from above, free from the shackles of democracy, is the new theology as Canadians are taught to blindly trust the benevolent corporatocracy, secure in the knowledge that what is good for corporate globalization must also be good for us.

When we are told that de-regulation is good for us, we believe it, even as tragedies such as the Lac Megantic inferno are fresh in our minds.

Destruction of the public sphere is also thought to be good, as are corporate in-roads into previously sacrosanct domains that were once thought to be emblematic of Canada.
It comes as no surprise, then, that many Canadians support the accelerating corporatization of universal healthcare. It's the (only) answer to the demands of an aging population, we are told, and what is best for the corporation is best for us.

Opposition is somehow treasonous, a socialist plot, and anathema to freedom loving peoples.
Consequently, sacrosanct investor-rights agreements -- such as the Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) -- are deemed necessary to lock in protections for free-ranging, transnational corporations, even as they shackle national economies and neuter democratic decision-making.

People blindly accept the co-option of human rights terminology that disguises the secret powers from above: "free trade" will liberate us; globalization is good, and Canada is open for business.
Once we remove our blinders, we see that the corrupting lies from above are disguising an anti-democratic system of governance that is impoverishing us, eroding our economy, and destroying any notions of universality or common good.

The irony is rich. The dismantling of our emblematic health care system is happening beneath our very noses. We are assured that it is in or best interests, and that corporate, multi-tiered health care, like corporate globalization, is inevitable. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Each promise about corporate healthcare is false. Comprehensive documentation shows that a "two tier" (it's actually a multitude of tiers) system is inferior to a universal publicly funded system, by any measure.

Not only is corporate health care bad for the collective health of a country's population, but it also cripples national economies. Ted Wagoner, former CEO of General Motors, recognized in 2008 that high healthcare costs reduce General Motor's competitiveness. Wagoner noted in "G.M C.E.O: Serious Health Care Reform 'Undoubtedly Would Help Level The Playing Field'" that his company spent over $103 billion over fifteen years on pensions and post-retirement health care benefits, and that, "Obviously if we had the $103 billion and could use it for other things, it would enable us to be even farther ahead on technology or newer equipment in our plants or whatever." The article further explains that Japan's universal health system ensures that Toyota "paid $1,400 less per vehicle on health care' and makes $2,400 more per car than American manufacturers."
Everything from bloated administrative costs, to the high cost of medical procedures, and the exorbitant cost of medications, to name just a few, make the US corporate healthcare model less efficient and more expensive than universal models, and the extra costs do not lead to better outcomes.

National health care programs, on the other hand, save money and improve outcomes. Bulk buying of medications improve patient accessibility to care, reduce costs to patients, and improve local and national economies.

Additionally, as the public system is further eroded by parallel corporate systems, other variables, such as wait times, also increase for most people.
Given the comprehensive evidence that illustrates the weakness of corporatized health care systems, this option should not even be on the table.

What, then, are productive solutions to Canada's current heath care woes?
Dr. Danielle Martin, family physician, V.P of Medical Affairs and Health Systems Solutions at Women's College Hospital, and Assistant Professor in Medicine and Health Policy at the University of Toronto, offers steps that could be implemented immediately to improve the health of all Canadians AND strengthen our economy.

Step one is "20 Drugs To Save A Nation." Bulk buying of medications through a public drug plan would reduce costs substantially. We could start now by bulk-buying 20 selected drugs, and eventually create a national pharmacare program which would save us as much as $10.7 billion per year.
Step two, "Less Is More" involves changing the culture of medical tests. We could improve health outcomes and save money by avoiding unnecessary testing and procedures.

The internet site www.choosingwiselycanada.org identifies the problems and dangers associated with unnecessary testing, and it explains "When you need them -- and when you don't."
Step three, "Sick With Poverty," is likely the most controversial, but it too would offer tremendous savings, as well as better health (and economic) outcomes.

Canada would save $7.6 billion per year on reduced health care costs alone if the crisis of poverty was responsibly addressed by discarding the current welfare system, and replacing it with a Guaranteed Annual Income system.

Evidence shouts that we could improve our collective health, and our economy, by improving, rather than rejecting universal healthcare -- and by shredding some of these corporate rights deals while we're at it.

All we need now is the collective will to make the right choices.

Christy Clark Wants Your Teenage Children Walking The Streets

Picture is of Christy Clark pandering and politicking at Seaspan Shipyards in 2011...remember Stephen Harper`s grand ship building contract, all that money...it was 2011...it is now 2014..still no ships under construction, same con job at the Irving shipyards in Halifax.....I`ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today, or a vote...sigh!





Written by Grant G



I`m not sure what has disgraced our province more, Christy Clark as the leader and face of British Columbia or a corporate media that cheerleads failure.....?

Would you eat at a restaurant(again) where you previously berated the waiter, the waitress, returned your food and refused to pay, cussed out the management and spit on the floor..

Would you trust having your vehicle serviced at a garage where you previously bounced checks, called into doubt the mechanic`s credentials, made rude and derogatory comments towards the garage....?

Probably not...there are plenty of other restaurants and service garages seemingly on every corner, water under the bridge, move on and spend your dollars elsewhere, however, public education isn`t everywhere, one place, one group, one set of teachers tasked to care for and teach your most valued asset, ......The Child.

Sign a labour contract, dot the I(s) and cross the T(s) and all is back to normal.....And all is back to normal...? really, just like that, happy smiling teachers, really, ...Teachers with no memories, no feelings, no remorse, no regrets just happy smiling teachers ready to teach little Billy and Sally, what grudges, what get-even thoughts, it doesn`t matter if teachers are now looking at PAY-UP notices coming through their mail slot, matters not that 1000s of teachers cancelled well-needed summer vacations, ......

Money, it`s one thing not to get more money it`s quite another to have dependable money stolen away, Christy Clark by taking monies away from teachers in her ongoing vendetta against teachers and her late dad has done more harm than can be imagined..

It will take years and years for the stench to fade, how motivated would you be to teach those BC Liberal parent`s kids, teachers can do their job, or they can do their job, must teachers be upbeat, motivated, ready and willing to work their butts off preparing your child for the future, or they can just do the minimum, score exams and hand out assignments...

Christy Clark is toxic sludge and no teacher settlement negotiated or otherwise can put broken and busted up Humpty Dumpty back together again....

Public education will never be the same again in British Columbia and you can thank Christy Clark for that....

$40 dollar per day childcare payments, for the littler ones, the bigger students get nothing....

You know what they say about idle hands....1000`s of teenage boys n girls fending for themselves, nothing to do, no money just time, time to smoke dope, time to drink, time to steal, commit crimes, time to have sex with each other while parent(s) are working, or perhaps time to have sex with adult men, that as a means to get cash, cash for dope, booze..

Will you Christy Clark take personal responsibility for anyone`s child who becomes incarcerated, drug addicted, working the streets, in jail or worse, will you Christy Clark take responsibility for those teenage children who die on weekday afternoons?

Parents know all too well that children, especially teenagers need organized structure to keep them out of trouble, teenagers need walking around money...

How come you Christy Clark want older teenage children wandering the streets without a penny(nickel) in their pocket..?

Besides scarring public education Christy Clark .......There will be dead children as a result of your actions...furthermore, every teenage child should receive the same $40 dollars per day...call it walking around money.

__________

There is no money, no money for kids, teachers, no money for seniors, no money for government oversight into mining, resource extraction, no money for anything, our province British Columbia has been brought to its knees because Christy Clark`s Liberal gang of incompetents have bankrupted our province, our provincial debt not counting BC Hydro debt, BC Ferry debt, IPP contractual debt and PPP debt stands at $75 billion dollars up from $28 billion in 2001...

There are no unicorns, no fairy godmother, no magic gold pixie dust just staggering debt, courtesy of fiscal criminality orchestrated by the BC Liberals....and there is no LNG riches coming our way....

I mentioned atop this post, who has disgraced us more, Christy Clark or our media and the answer is...

Corporate media....

"We are in a horserace with other countries, .....A trillion dollar once in a lifetime opportunity.....100,000 s of LNG jobs...revenue streams for northern communities, for First Nations.....Elimination of sales tax, ....our BC debt eliminated and a $100 billion dollar prosperity fund..."

Christy Clark promised British Columbia everything mentioned above for the last 3 years and during the 2013 election writ.....and guess what we as a province will be receiving?......NOTHING!

16 months since the election and LNG died.......Every project is dead except for the PETRONAS bid, that project involves giving away our finite resources to 5 national foreign governments...British Columbians are unaware that the PETRONAS project is not private industry, ...5 foreign governments involved...Malaysia...Japan...Brunei....China and India....not Shell..not Chevron, not Exxon Mobile, not Progress energy or Apache Energy...5 foreign Governments with equity shares...Hey Christy Clark...do you not realize that equity partners pay wholesale not retail.....


http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.ca/2013/11/christy-clarks-preposterous-lng-fantasy.html

Christy Clark`s and Rich Coleman`s LNG tax framework has now been pushed to the end of the year 2014(or later), the LNG export tax framework was initially promised for September 2013..been delayed, stalled and now...

Now it has been all but scuttled, been notified that the new number, (the old number bandied about last year was a 7% LNG export tax) is less than 1% ..higher than 0% but less than 1%...

So why isn`t the media reporting this, this LNG taxation won`t be a secret very long, there is no reason to withhold this information from the public, these aren`t trade secrets or Colonel Sanders recipes, it won`t affect other countries vying for LNG investment, you can`t beat 0%....

Even at 0% taxation the margins are thin, too thin thus these companies are going elsewhere, they need a country with no environmental rules or enforcement, they need a country where the local populous can be used and abused, modern day servitude disguised as progress...

Even with that the PETRONAS bid is not a for sure, still in doubt.....

Here is how the announcement of the LNG taxation framework will go down, what I`ve been told....

The LNG taxation framework will not be announced UNTIL there is a final investment decision, meaning if PETRONAS delays their FID announcement the LNG taxation framework will be delayed right along with it.....

Assuming PETRONAS does commit to a LNG plant(If Canadian bankers lend them the money on very long-term conditions).....

What is currently planned is a big press conference featuring the head of PETRONAS and Christy Clark, the talk will be of $billions and billions in investment, they will talk hyper exaggerated job numbers and how great this will be for British Columbia.....And we still won`t know the LNG taxation framework....Christy Clark will saunter of the stage and leave the questions for Rich Coleman...

Only after all the balloons, all the media perks have been handed out, only after the public fanfare will Rich Coleman deliver the bad news, ...How times had changed, how the parameters were moved, new playing field in a tough global economy....Only after all that is said will Rich Coleman tell BCers that their proposed export tax is gone!....  7% to 0%..

And if it isn`t 0% PETRONAS too will not build....Cue the media, they have no shame and Keith Baldrey will help sell this pig n a poke, in fact Keith Baldrey already knows about the double shuffle two step bullshit being planned for British Columbia....Vancouver Sun will promote the new deal as will the Globe n Mail...And if you have any doubt...

Check out the pre disappointment shilling being done....

http://www.vancouversun.com/business/Cayo+Vancouver+biggest+winner+when+forests+farms+mines+well/9720865/story.html


The "new" government funded think tank claims that city folk are the big winners in resource extraction, all those new lawyers and finance people required, all the goods and services, all multiplying and doubling, tripling, spinning, churning, there is even a video where think tank spokeboob explains in a Martian/Greek/Geek dialect how raping our province is good for Vancouver.....It will even pay for teachers wage demands....oh the humanity...

Desperate days for Christy Clark....

And now for the Glob n Pale......

They published today pure tripe, unseasoned tripe, no orange sauce, no wild rice just plain tripe that stunk up my computer screen.....

What next Globe n Mail?......Are you going to start selling special edition Christy Clark underwear or are you going to declare your allegiance to idiot writing shills?

Absolute pathetic writing and shilling finding press pages, I`ll let one commenter from the Glob N Pale sum up the article...



With eyes on LNG boom, demand for construction workers in B.C. to rise

KFB in B.C. wrote, and I quote.....


"What drivel! The globe should be ashamed for letting this bovine generated waste to be published. There is not one lng project on the go and is in all likely hood never will be. This is just cheap Schilling for a totally corrupt government. Shame."

Lie Big or Go Home

  
     Written By Mark Taliano    People are disinclined to believe monstrous crimes, especially since monstrous crimes are usually camouflaged by Big Lies. Hitler knew about the value of the Big Lie, and he wrote about it in
Mein HYPERLINK "http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/kampf.html"Kampf.

Stalin too was aware of the power of monstrous crimes. He is said to have observed that "when one man dies it is tragedy, when thousands die HYPERLINK "http://books.google.de/books?id=8fp1A2s6aQwC&pg=PA510&dq"it'sHYPERLINK "http://books.google.de/books?id=8fp1A2s6aQwC&pg=PA510&dq" statistics."

People are even less inclined to believe that their own country perpetuates these crimes. On a subterranean level, people associate the search for truth as being somehow unpatriotic, even as the search for truth means a search for freedom from the totalitarian shackles of undemocratic governance that advances secret agendas through its manipulation of the masses. Silence in the face of the lies of totalitarianism is a form of complicity.

Humanity’s inclination to accept monstrous crimes and the lies that camouflage them means that the crimes are perpetuated, time and again, throughout history. Those responsible for engineering the crimes are aware of this.

We now know, for example, that Bush and his aides lied
935 times in the lead up to the invasion of Iraq, and that they provided false evidence as a pretext for the illegal invasion of Iraq. Despite the fact that about one million people have already died as a result of this massive criminal enterprise, the public somehow remains delusional and ready to accept the next big crime and the next batch of lies.

The open-ended War On Terror is yet another Big Lie. It is used as a cover for on-going imperialism, not only in Afghanistan and Iraq, but also in the Ukraine, Syria, and Palestine. Those who oppose Empire are said to be terrorists, and the monstrous crimes are continue unabated. The most recent culprit is Israel, -- thought to be an appendage (or driver?) of the U.S empire -- which is currently committing genocide in Palestine. Predictably, much of the world is looking away, apparently lulled by the lies and distortions of the corporate media echo chambers.

In order to break this toxic cycle of delusions and crimes, we need to dig deep, find the truth behind the crimes, and the money behind the lies.

The foundational catalyst for the fraudulent "War On Terror" is 9/11, yet, unsurprisingly, investigations into this monstrous crime have so far been inadequate. As David Ray Griffith argues in The New Pearl Harbour: Disturbing Questions About The Bush Administration And 9/11, the conclusions of the political investigations: the 9/11 Joint Congressional Inquiry (of which 28 pages remain redacted), and the 9/11 Independent Commission, need to be re-examined by a sweeping juridical investigation, free from political interference and hasty presuppositions.

It is, for example, unacceptable, that the head of the 9/11 Commission,
Philip HYPERLINK "http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/09/20/142478/"Zelikow, was appointed by Bush administration, just as it is unacceptable that both the Joint Congressional hearings and the 9/11 Commission hearings were restricted by presuppositions that the crime was the result of breakdowns -- including incompetence, poor communication, and ignorance -- rather than official complicity.

 

 

At the very least,
prima facie incidents which point to official complicity should be re-examined. Griffith identifies, in detail, 40 such "smoking guns" that have not been adequately investigated. Three of the more compelling ones are listed below:

Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) to intercept hijacked airlines were not followed on September 11, 2001 only.
Forensic evidence – steel from the collapsed World Trade Center – was quickly removed, and shipped overseas, before it could be examined.
Local Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents were prevented from professionally performing their duties by FBI headquarters.

A better appreciation of the "money behind the lies" adds urgency to the need for a judicial investigation into the terror of 9/11 that killed
2,996 people immediately, and launched (previously-planned) invasions overseas, all under the cover of the on-going and patently fraudulent War On Terror.

The Bush Administration, the Pentagon, the CIA, the FBI, the military-industrial complex, and the oil industry all benefit from the 9/11 crimes:
Bush’s plans to enlarge the US Empire, and expand its globalized model of predatory economics were accelerated and advanced.
$48 billion was added to the Pentagon budget.
CIA funding was increased by 42%.
Imperial conquests, starting with Afghanistan and Iraq, are now disguised as legitimate, and even "self-defence".
Legislation to dominate and oppress civilians (i.e the Patriot Act, Homeland Security) continues to flourish.
Security, policing, and military complexes continue to benefit from more funding and power.
Oil companies continue to profit and expand in new areas of US control.
 

Polities that benefit from a crime are not necessarily guilty of the crime; however, it is still reasonable to ask whether they contributed to the crime or whether they were simply unwitting "beneficiaries."

Justice and freedom demand that we ask these questions in the context of a wide-sweeping judicial investigation. Failing that, we should pay heed to George Orwell’s assertion: "To be corrupted by totalitarianism, one does not have to live in a totalitarian country."

200 to 1



Written by Grant G

I don`t normally put in my 2 cents worth on international stories, in this case the Palestine Israeli ongoing disgrace, however one can only remain silent for so long, Stephen Harper`s finger wagging is bad enough but when a below average IQ deficient school drop out Christy Clark chooses sides, when she has no skin in the game, doesn`t represent the views of British Columbia, pandering to the simplistic Fox news, Sun news crowd, old angry black n white simplistic thinkers, those of time gone by, ...

Harvey Oberfeld, rightwing Stephen Harper promoter and racist proved my point, Oberfeld has also admitted he`s a huge Ezra Levant fan, that explains his latest simplistic black n white posting, dripping with Fox news and Ezra Levant` fingerprints, devoid of thought, absent is reason, cause, missing is everything, a posting based on the rants of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, an article tainted by Ezra Levant`s hate speech..

Sun news should be banned from the airwaves and Ezra Levant arrested and charged with hate speech, that was the last straw for me, in an opening editorial by the little twerp Ezra Levant, a man who has been sued successfully many times for slander and libel...

Ezra Levant ranting against the middle east talked of the holocaust, of gas chambers, Hitler and the word Nazi he used over 50 times, Hamas according to Ezra Levant are planning on building gas chambers and gassing every Israeli and Jewish person, as soon as Iran drops a nuclear bomb on Israel Hamas and the Palestine people are going to amass the still living Jewish people and lead them into the newly built gas chambers....That according to Sun news and Ezra Levant(and they think this hate speech will help Stephen Harper get re-elected)(Ha).....

Illegally occupied lands and territorial creep....

Greasers and the Socs(socials)...The socials come from wealth and privilege, the greasers live in squalor, the only thing they have in common is hatred of each other, knives, bats and chains, brawling, fighting, turf wars, one group returns home to tennis courts and college education, the other side returns home to cockroach infested rooms in the projects..

The bloods and the crypts, rivals with common hatreds, both groups peasant class but at least equal in power and arms..

Sunni hate Shiites, Iran hates Iraq, Kurds hate both of those groups, the Hatfields and McCoys, Argentinians hate Brazilians, ...

Irish immigrant vermin, taking away jobs from early American men in the late 18th century...Hatred towards WAAPS, Wetbacks, Polacks, excuse my French, nigger slaves stolen from Africa brought to America to toil in cottonfields, owning another man, robber barons raping the black girls, there there, get to the back of the bus shut your mouth and don`t you dare use white man`s water fountain, that was a mere 3 decades ago when equal rights were granted yet hatred, bigotry and wanting every single nigger dead still fills the minds of many, hello Texas...

Intense hatred, underlying resentment, wishing the worst on those who came to YOUR land looking for a better life, a job, looking for a home, seething anger that won`t stop until death, that hatred of those coloured different or speaking foreign tongue is real, now imagine everything above except...

Except those different are on your land, territorial creeping day by day, year by year, Israel, aided by $4 to $5 billion per year in military weapons, courtesy of America, the Socials versus the greasers, those of wealth and privilege, shopping malls and McDonald restaurants pushing, probing forward, nothing in common but the hatred of each other, dirt poor refugee existence populous being pushed by a Yaletown condo owning crowd......Resentment of those different is easy to understand in everyday situations so just imagine how sores would fester when those different are taking your land and there`s not a damn thing you can do about it, no court, no review board no non-partisan voice to decide or direct, , no, what we have is Goliath brandishing weapons and shields funded by American banks, poke, annoy, probe, prod and territorial creep...Any pushback is met with military force, Goliath military, torture, detainment, no lawyers, no justice no law, only hatred, yes the Hamas charter says no more, enough is enough, death to Israel, death to Judaism.

Greasers, Palestine will never be equals,  revenge and vengeance be mine, who will lead the greasers to prosperity and a land without territorial creeping, Hamas will and I am no fan of violence, yes Christy Clark should have her clucking mouth duct taped and Harvey Oberfeld deserves a swift kick, or at least a new remote control with no channel 177..

Thousands of years of wars, religious war, Christian crusades, wholesale slaughter of those different, of those not wanting to convert, there is no high ground for religion, any religion, Catholic child raping leaders, hundreds of years of child abuse, indoctrinated abuse, passed from Father to Son to.....Indoctrinated from youth....to you..

The unwritten Israeli charter, kill all the Palestine people and take all the land, West Bank, Gaza Strip and more, just don`t put it in writing and who in Canada wants to report on the moral sins of Goliath and his army, that being an American militarily armed Goliath war machine, who, ...Not Ezra Levant, ...Stephen Harper wouldn`t approve.

June 12th 2014 Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and 16 year old Naftali Fraenkel, 3 young Israeli boys living in a Jewish only settlement near the town of Hebron just vanished, days later the bodies found, they were murdered and that is tragedy, ....murder, mayhem, we have murders in Surrey every month, in Detroit there are multiple murders everyday, children, drug dealers, gang bangers, and the innocent, murdered hockey moms, hit n run pedestrian kills, we have our own police killing innocents and lying about it...Robert Dziekanski comes to mind, over time, after investigations, after testimony we in North America sometimes see justice, sometimes, what if you lived in a land where torture, incarceration, no phone calls, no lawyers, imagine if you lived in a land where your child could be snatched off the street by a Goliath military machine and held without cause, without charge,beaten, deprived light, food, water, deprived of humane treatment, killed unless confession....oh indeed and they do confess, anything to stop the pain.

Hitler killed Jewish people, raped them, used them for labour, Germany killed Gypsies too, Polaks, the infirm, mentally deficient, killed Canadians, Americans and everyone else who got in the way and to compare Palestine or Hamas to Hitler when Palestine has no plan or ability to take over the world, no desire to do any such thing  and for Ezra Levant to make that comparison in inflammatory tone is indeed hate speech worthy of jail..

Even balanced media coverage doesn`t exist and violence solves nothing unless all are killed, sores festering and vengeance be mine for after the bodies of the three young Jewish boys were found Goliath rampaged, 2000 homes ransacked in the middle of the night, hundreds arrested and a estimated 10 killed, hundreds held without charge, denied any legal recourse, tortured, yes the death of the boys was tragic and Hamas denied any responsibility however..

However in my opinion Israel pokes, provokes and creeps and by stealth wants these flare ups, 200 to 1...

The death of those boys was tragic, unacceptable and would you as a Canadian accept having your door kicked in, arrested without cause because someone affluent was murdered, someone better than you, as in not greasy, carte blanc powers to invade your home, arrest your children, without charge, tortured, you, your neighbour, the entire block, all persons on every floor in your highrise Yaletown condo hauled off to secret prisons, and if that happened ....

Innocent, insulted, treated like vermin, oily greasers living in creepland controlled by the socials, since the year 2000 ....since the year 2000 .......1400 Palestine children have died by the hands of the Israeli military....2 Palestine children killed every week, year in year out...those 1400 killed children, a mere 40 were found to be guilty of association ....There`s more, besides those innocents killed over the last 5 years on average 200 Palestine children are arrested, detained and tortured every month, these stories fail to breach western media news...Why...

Death of any children is tragic, 200 to 1....When those Jewish boys vanished, when their bodies were found some high ranking Jewish news makers had some very interesting public statements, statements that are never passed on to Fox, or Sun news watchers..

After the bodies were found..

____________________

When the three Israeli teens disappeared, Netanyahu immediately blamed Hamas, although it has reportedly denied responsibility, and launched a campaign to punish any person associated with the party, as well as those it wanted to target for other reasons (such as previously released prisoners). An informed observer cannot help but conclude that he seized on the personal tragedy of the families involved to pursue a broader political goal. Israel’s intention to “perform a root canal to uproot everything green [Hamas-related] in the West Bank” was announced on the national Army Radio, while Economy Minister Naftali Bennett promised to “turn membership of Hamas into an entry ticket to hell.” A high-ranking Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officer told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that the mass arrests are “a kind of thorough cleaning.” Israel, he said, had decided “to use the upcoming days to arrest anyone ‘infected’ with Hamas.” In one Israeli news source, an IDF officer even admitted that the operation had been planned ahead of time, and that its goal was not to find the boys, but provoke unrest

I have no skin in Israeli/Palestine generational war, I`m not choosing sides, my goal is to report all sides and suss out my own truth, what I think doesn`t matter, small fish, same goes for Stephen Harper, ....Christy Clark, STFU....Harvey Oberfeld, find a new news channel...

Ezra Levant, you should be jailed for hate speech....

The Hamas charter, it`s out there......The Israeli charter.......One dead Israeli at the hands of Palestine must be avenged with the death of 200 Palestine people, children, woman or innocents, it doesn`t matter, ......Greasers right?

The death of a child, brother or mother, scars are permanent, back of the bus and segregation, inferior status quo, labels and helplessness, haves and have not, including truth in media, vengeance be mine and elephants never forget....

Christy Clark Fatigue and The Streaking Diversion



Written by Grant G


Boy oh boy, how does one get around Vancouver city and the burbs when there are road closures and diversions everywhere, all caused by a myriad of Bollywood movie productions, ...just kidding, $20 million dollars flushed down the toilet on a Bollywood award show, political pandering and vote buying on the taxpayer`s dime...

"In my heart I am  Filipino"... ......."I would rather by a MILF than a cougar"..."LNG, a $trillion dollar once in a lifetime opportunity"....

Christy photo-op vote buyer say anything but the truth Clark,........We don`t care about your religious faith Christy, whether you be Filipino, Indian, Islamic, Muslim, Catholic and or...as we recently found out..Jewish.

British Columbia wants some simple answers to simple questions, ....Like perhaps...How long can we continue to claim a balanced provincial budget when our provincial debt is rising by over $5 billion dollars per year?..

"LNG will eliminate our provincial debt, ....LNG will fund a $100 billion dollar prosperity fund..LNG can eliminate road tolls, bridge tolls, pay for new schools, new hospitals and possibly even eliminate our provincial sales tax".....

We need answers to LNG industrial sized questions Christy Clark.....

Christy.....Why are we contemplating building Site C dam for an estimated $12 billion dollar taxpayer cost when LNG companies have already stated that they will be burning natural gas for their power needs?

Christy...Rich Coleman has stated, and I quote...

"LNG energy companies already know what rate our proposed provincial LNG tax is".....Christy..if that is true how come British Columbia citizens don`t know, how come every energy pundit, every energy industry representative including the University of Calgary..including Jack Mintz, including the Vancouver board of trade have all stated that any added tax beyond provincial royalties at the wellhead are a non-starter...

Christy Clark......An LNG industry....What is in it for British Columbia?

Since our domestic media has no balls, won`t ask questions, a group of club members where tough follow-up questions towards BC Liberal politicians are not only banned but taboo..

What we do know about BC`s LNG industry....Not one final investment decision from any LNG/gas company...LNG plants once built employ a mere 200 to 300 persons on a full-time basis....

We know you Christy Clark lied about employment numbers related to LNG extraction and production, exaggerated those numbers by a factor of 10....not 100,000 jobs but maybe 10,000 ..that is if 8 LNG plants actually get built..

http://focusonline.ca/?q=node/695

Christy..We know you are lying about GHG emissions related to LNG..if any plants are built and burn gas to freeze their gas any GHG reduction targets are gone, out the window, you can waffle, blather and silently fart all the messages you want about cleaning China`s airshed at the expense of British Columbia`s...Truth is....BC Liberals don`t give a rat`s ass about China`s air quality, and apparently not BC`s air quality either.... only re-election..

We know Kitimat`s airshed at the most could handle 2 LNG plants..So stop talking about 4 or 5 or more plants in Kitimat, the same thing goes for the Prince Rupert airshed....So stop talking about a dozen or more LNG plants in Kitimat and Prince Rupert..

British Columbia also wants to know why you Christy Clark in recent days signed a memorandum of understanding with China that grants them permission to use foreign temporary workers for LNG plant construction...

http://www.vancouverobserver.com/news/bc-and-china-sign-mou-allow-foreign-workers-expand-lng-industry

Isn`t that putting the cart before the horse?...I didn`t see any provisos in the announcement about temporary workers that stated...If 3 or 4 projects are going simultaneously temporary foreign workers will be allowed, ..or 2 or 3 projects being built simultaneously....You Christy Clark granted carte blanc permission to China that foreign workers are A okay...

Christy Clark........Do we not have enough tradepersons to accommodate construction for even 1 LNG plant?..Shouldn`t the temporary foreign worker debate and or permission to use them only come after a problem arises, like perhaps if there was actually multiple projects being built at the same time and shortages reared their head?

I read an article the other day where northern municipal communities have created an alliance, an alliance of towns wanting their 3% share of a mythical $100 billion dollar prosperity fund....funny, didn`t those communities hear.....?...That $100 billion dollar prosperity fund has already been downgraded to a $30 billion dollar prosperity fund, a 70% decline before ......before anything is built, proposed, projected, it`s not a good sign......!

___________

A $12-million provincial offer to Gitxsan chiefs to clear the way for gas pipeline development is inadequate and ill-timed, community leaders say.The offer is part of the B.C. government’s efforts to reach agreements with at least 30 First Nations in northern B.C. to allow billions of dollars of liquefied natural gas plants to go ahead. Premier Christy Clark has made developing LNG to export to Asia as the underpinning of her economic plan, promising five plants to create thousands of jobs and fuel a $30-billion prosperity fund."

http://www.vancouversun.com/technology/Gitxsan+displeased+with+pipeline+offer+made+directly/10050385/story.html

_____________-



This is what happens when you promise and pretend a $trillion dollars is up for grabs...

Even BC Liberal promoter and pom pom girl Keith (balderdash) Baldry can`t keep a straight face when it comes to propagating the industrial sized LNG lie...LIES.

http://www.burnabynow.com/opinion/columnists/a-pipe-dream-full-of-problems-1.1265977

Before I get to the crux of the matter...

In recent weeks, that highly advertised during our provincial election campaign prosperity fund, that $100 billion dollar figure has been cut by 70%...any revenue from a separate LNG tax, not our traditional royalty regime but that separate tax is over...

From an industry insider off the record.......After Australia dumped their carbon tax regime and reduced industry costs the BC Liberal Government has behind closed doors scrubbed any talk or implementation of any LNG taxation beyond traditional royalties......So desperate are Christy Clark and the lying BC Liberals to get shovels in the ground that they have silently scrapped their tax..not quite sure when they plan to tell the taxpaying public about this latest development...perhaps we will be informed after a future Government discovers only cobwebs where $billions were supposed be accruing interest in our LNG secret vault..

Are you shocked yet?

What caused our BC Liberal government to scrap their proposed separate LNG tax?

Japan has okayed the restart of 2 nuclear plants and.....and can even more restarts be far behind..

_____________--

Reactor restarts would aid Japanese recovery

http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/NP-Reactor-restarts-would-aid-Japanese-recovery-2807144.html

______________--

China and Russia inked a massive deal for a longterm cheap natural gas supply coming via pipeline from Russia direct to China, no liquefaction, no expensive LNG plants required..

Australia has enough capacity coming online in the next 3 years to flood the pacific basin with LNG, ...and under industry pressure Australia scrapped their carbon tax, making British Columbia an outlier...

Japan`s future forecast for LNG is in decline.....China has secured cheap supply from Russia...Over capacity and over supply are not myth but reality..


British Columbia proposed LNG projects have been unable to secure any longterm energy buying contracts at a price that is profitable...

Christy Clark.....British Columbia wants the truth on LNG, what is in it for the taxpayer, how many jobs, when, how much water is to be despoiled, how many holes drilled, how much methane will be escaping into our atmosphere, ......We want the truth Christy Clark, not spin, not hyperbole, not bluster, blather, bafflegab and exaggeration, ....We want The Straight Goods..

Hedge funds.....New York hedge funds lend money for a price, they operate 2 different ways...They lend monies to companies with the ability to repay and sometimes they lend money to companies in the hopes they default on repayment thus opening the door for the hedgefund to takeover and or claim the asset..

The silent truth....Breaking news, a New York hedge fund has told Apache Energy to dump their money losing LNG assets or be denied a loan....!..Thus Apache Energy has dropped out of the Kitimat LNG project, they were partnered with Chevron and this particular proposal/project was the furthest along in terms of design, site location and pipeline route....!

So what does this tell us, between the lines, ...It tells us that this New York hedge fund sees no profitability from building a LNG plant....For if this Hedgefund saw the potential for big monetary returns they wouldn`t have told Apache in no uncertain terms....Dump your money draining pits or you get nothing....

It also tells us that New York Hedgefunds are not interested in acquiring any LNG plants still not built and without longterm energy buying contracts...

We also know that EnCana gas has dumped all their British Columbia natural gas and LNG assets ...Why?

We also know Ziff energy has placed all their BC natural gas assets on the auction bloc....Why..

We also know that shale gas plays/ natural gas plays were a Wallstreet moneymaker for insiders, natural gas mergers and acquisitions were the flavour of the day as got Balls/Wallstreet attempted to lure investors in....That game has fizzled..

Here is what British Gas(BG Group) stated 2 years ago about construction jobs and fulltime plant workers if they built their project...

_________________-


"BG intends to build a facility on Ridley Island capable of producing 21 million tonnes of LNG a year. Called Prince Rupert LNG, it would be built overseas in modules and shipped to Prince Rupert for assembly.

 Even so, the plant would create 3,500 jobs during construction,

 250 permanent direct jobs and another 250 spinoff jobs.

 BG says it is planning to build it in two phases, beginning in 2016.
The first phase — two seven-million-tonne-a-year processing units, or trains — is to be completed by 2021"

And here is what Rich (gassy) Coleman and Christy Clark said about LNG employment numbers during our provincial election.....

_____________

"LNG facilities are currently proposed by business groups that include some of the world`s biggest energy companies-Shell, Imperial, Chevron, British Gas, Petronas, SK & and ES of South Korea, Inpex and the Chinese National Offshore Oil Corporation, to name some of the major players, it`s no fantasy.
The projects mean 39,000 jobs to British Columbia during construction with another 75,000 full time jobs created once in operation. We can create 1 $trillion dollars in economic activity and create the BC Prosperity fund with $100 billion over 30 years.

An opportunity this good faces lots of global competition. Premier Christy Clark and Today`s BC Liberals have worked diligently to enable LNG as an economic generator for decades to come."

Christy Clark`s vote-getting LNG fantasy has fallen apart, threads so worn, holes, patches and spin will not keep this sick joke atop our domestic media headlines any longer, the truth is coming out fast, ...

Will our media forget about LNG, like it never happened, ....?

PETRONAS....This company is nothing but a scam artist...So many headlines, headlines like...PETRONAS to invest $35 billion dollars over 30 years in British Columbia

Yet PETRONAS hasn`t invested any money in British Columbia...It has been advertised that PETRONAS has invested $6 billion dollars in British Columbia so far, but they haven`t, they bought Alberta company Progess Energy for $6 billion dollars, that isn`t investment, Progress Energy was already here, already playing in northeast British Columbia, changing the name on ownership papers of Progress Energy is not investment, investment is building a new company, not flipping titles..

PETRONAS....PETRONAS is the Malaysian government, PETRONAS delivers the Malaysian government 45% of their yearly budget, the Malaysian Government depends on PETRONAS for vast sums of money...Does Malaysia the country have banks?..I ask that question because...

Banks, hedgefunds, investment institutions do lend money...Banks lend money on short term and long term basis...The shorter the term the lower the repayment costs, if a bank lends say...say $15 billion dollars and the repayment term is over 30 years the interest rate is high, the cost prohibitive, interest premiums large, bankers know that any company borrowing that kind of money for an industrial project, an industrial exporting energy project know that interest costs will have to be built into the cost of doing business, and that any multi-national energy company in the same business, in this case the LNG exporting business, a company with deep pockets like Chevron, Exxon or British Petroleum, companies that use their own money to build projects will have a huge financial edge over companies requiring borrowing vast sums, or in PETRONAS`s case, borrowing the entire cost of their proposed British Columbia LNG project...

PETRONAS has not asked any New York hedge funds for a longterm loan, they haven`t asked Malaysian banks, PETRONAS has asked Canadian Banks to loan them the money, ....

Why.....Banks do not want the asset, meaning getting funding for LNG projects without longterm buyers is delusional, why....Why when PETRONAS talked about investing $35 billion dollars in British Columbia, all the headlines, 2 years worth of PETRONAS headlines, all the money they were going to invest, how come only now when all this bad LNG news has come to the light of day do we find out that PETRONAS will only proceed if Canadian banks take all the risk and lend PETRONAS $15 billion dollars over 30 years....

http://business.financialpost.com/2014/06/19/petronas-seeking-as-much-as-us15b-for-lng-project-in-canadas-biggest-ever-debt-financing-deal-sources/?__lsa=777b-25d5

In other words PETRONAS wants Canadian banks to risk their money, PETRONAS isn`t putting up any money and if it flops Canadian banks would be left holding an empty bag...And we know what banking and lending firms think about the prospect of LNG riches..
They just told Apache to dump their dogged LNG investments or get no money...And Apache Energy obliged....Kitimat  LNG is now on the ropes and Apache Energy doesn`t care., they need a loan..

http://www.vancouversun.com/business/Apache+Corp+under+investor+pressure+exiting+Kitimat+project/10079042/story.html

Between the lines folks....PETRONAS is out too, Malasia`s national bank won`t even lend them the money....PETRONAS, rather than just scrubbing the project they are attempting to save face by using the bank denying lending them money as an excuse to bail out...And if the banks are stupid enough to put all their money at risk so be it......Canadian banks will not lend this money..

Christy Clark, we don`t care if you are Filipino, Muslim, Islamic, we couldn`t care less if you are Catholic, Jewish or a Bollywooder, you can be a cougar or a MILF looking for brassballs doesn`t matter, all we British Columbian`s want is the truth, the straight goods, ...LNG is a lost cause?..If there are ne real benefits except a few longterm jobs just walk away, if taxpayer subsidies are the order of the day just walk away, or run....

P.S. ......Oh, by the way....The BC Liberals and Christy Clark so don`t want to talk about a defunct never got off the ground LNG industry, on the same day Apache announces they are out of British Columbia leaving Kitimat LNG project high n dry the BC Liberals have created a headline changer/diversion to change the media channel......That channel changer is a proposed $40 dollar a day childcare credit if schools don`t open up in the fall of 2014......You are so transparent Christy Clark....Why would you even make that suggestion?....And do you think those childcare spaces/openings actually exist...for hundreds of thousands of students?....Fluff, noise, look over here, not there,......don`t look Ethel......Too late..



The Straight Goods
