SNOW BIRD ALERT: GO STRAIGHT TO MEXICO: Canadians should stop travelling to Amerika if Emperor Obushama signs draconian disappearance-enabling NDAA… PRAY FOR PEACE: stay away from USA until Ron Paul is elected

I don’t recall being asked whether I agreed to being a subject of Emperor Obushama, so, while the Internet is still sort of free, I opt out of that bogus status right now.

Frankly, I don’t much appreciate how Herr Stefan von Harper has redefined what it means to be a ‘Conservative’ or a ‘Canadian’ either, for that matter.

As a Jesuit-trained Canadian Catholic historian with deep family roots in the Golden State, I abhor the craven militarism and thuggish banksterism of the present decadent  tyrannous regimes in all three of the North American failed narco-states.

My late father was arrested during the Second World War, on trumped-up charges, because he spoke out for his own principled reasons against Canada  fighting England’s war.

I am concerned that if President Obama signs the NDAA, family and friends in the great Republic to our south will be subject to arbitrary, sudden and forceful arrest.

If Obushama can get away with this tyranny, what is to stop our own Dictator Harper from bringing in very similar laws up north?

This is a very serious violation of God’s Natural Law and traditional American constitutional law as I understand it from my five years of studies under Professors Raymond Dennehy and  Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis, Jesuit Fathers Buckley, Fessio, King and other eminent Jewish, Roman Catholic, Canadian and American historians, in the History Department and the Saint Ignatius Institute at the University of San Francisco, California.

The two northern amigos just agreed to share travellers’ data between police in both countries, and that is also a clear violation of the privacy and sovereignty of the people of each country.

Since 2008, according to recently uncovered secret Canadian defence data retrieved using Freedom of Information legislation by the Canadian Press, we already share our military with the Gringos in all sorts of scenarios, including terrorist emergencies, so we have somehow inadvertently allowed this covert military to completely usurp both our House of Commons and Senate, making our soldiers shameless mercenaries in the American Empire.

We are already living under Imperial American martial law in both countries, in effect, but most people don’t seem to realize it yet.

If Barack Obama makes this horrible mistake and signs the NDAA, Canadians should stop travelling to that country, pending the election of a more humble and reasonable republican president, namely Dr. Ron Paul.

Dr. Paul would certainly work to rescind the ludicrously named Patriot Act, and the even more draconian National Defense Authorization Act which would authorize indefinite detention without charge of American citizens, and hopefully the good peace doctor would also stop nuclear ship visits to these Canadian sovereign salt waters around Vancouver Island and the other Gulf Islands.

Gringo militarist aggressors have no legitimate business bringing their dangerous nuclear submarines, nor their huge aircraft carriers USS Abraham Lincoln, the USS Nimitz, the USS Stennis or any other such heavy nuclear-armed and nuclear-powered behemoth warships into our Pacifican harbours such as Esquimalt, Nanoose or Victoria.

Upon election, Ron Paul promises to defend America, but to also end all the futile wars in Muslim countries immediately, and to bring all the American troops home from all 900 military bases in more than 130 countries, and that should include Canada.

Until that glorious day when the Constitutional Republic is restored, in the meantime, Canadian snow birds who can afford it should go to Mexico this winter instead.

They will find that the warm people in that beautiful country are much more congenial than hysterical racist propaganda here would have them believe.

Jeremy Maddock on an old ‘Dean Team’ idea of affordable housing in Victoria: ‘politicians only support affordable housing that’s publicly funded and managed.’ Letter published in Times Colonist, October 27, 2011.

City wants a monopoly on affordable housing

BY JEREMY MADDOCK, TIMES COLONIST OCTOBER 27, 2011

Re: “‘It’s not going to cost the city a penny,’ ” Times Colonist, Oct. 22.

I was quite disgusted to read that the City of Victoria is continuing to block a private developer’s efforts to offer affordable housing units in an unused downtown hotel.

Wherever you come from ideologically, it’s difficult to deny that Victoria is in desperate need of more affordable housing.

It’s one of the main talking points in every local election.

But it seems that once they are elected, local politicians only support affordable housing that’s publicly funded and managed.

When a private entrepreneur comes along with a viable business model to turn an empty hotel into cheap housing for struggling Victorians, City Hall opposes it.

Could it be that politicians only believe in helping people when they have a monopoly on doing it?

I was also a little shocked by at least one councillor’s rationale for opposing the private affordable housing plan:

“Coun. Lynn Hunter is worried that the nature of the development could make it a magnet for single men, which could lead to added social costs such as police calls the city will have to pick up in the future.”

Can you imagine if this councillor had said the same thing about blacks, natives, or basically any minority group other than “single men?”

‘Oak Bay democracy can still be clean, easy and free’, says Gregory Hartnell; ‘Rockland Outsider’ didn’t spend a cent on paperless sign-free Campaign for Oak Bay Liberty

I am pleased to report something that I am sure that all my cousins the Turnbulls, and all my long-dead Glaswegian ancestors on my mother’s side, would certainly appreciate.

I didn’t spend a red cent, not one devalued Canadian penny, not one single unit of the Bankster’s fiat currency in spreading the bulletproof ideas of Liberty to the good people of Oak Bay in last week’s election.

I analysed the basics of Dr. Ron Paul’s erudition and wisdom, integrating the most applicable economic principles into my own non partisan ten point plan for Oak Bay economic recovery, incorporating Austrian School of Economics ideas as I understand them from studying Dr. Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty.

So it is quite possible to come from Victoria with a commendation and a warning, to stand for election in a neighbouring jurisdiction, to spread timeless revolutionary anti-corporatist ideas, to not spend a cent, and to have about 569 souls vote for those sorts of pro-Life, pro-Liberty, pro low tax ideas.

Thanks to all my Pro-Life, Pro-Liberty, Pro-Peace, Pro-Market, Pro-Sound Money Concerned Citizens and other new friends in Oak Bay.

Remember folks, this campaign was essentially a one man operation, run by face to face contact with Oak Bay residents, telephone calls, emails and blogs.

Imagine what you can do with a gang of peaceful Liberty revolutionaries who are more computer savvy than your humble servant, and not hung up on Scottish frugality.

I didn’t use any so-called social media at all.

No facebook ‘friends’, no myspace, no linkedin, no twittering…

NADA de estas cosas estupidas!

MUCHAS GRACIAS, AMIGOS!

Can our heritage Joseph Strauss-designed Johnson Street bascule bridge be saved by three new Victoria City Councillors? Half of philistine Dean’s Team is history: Lynn Hunter replaced by Ben Isitt, John Luton replaced by Shellie Gudgeon; Philippe Lucas replaced by Lisa Helps

Joseph Strauss’ bascule bridge is shamefully neglected by the Fortinites

THREE JOHNSON STREET  BRIDGE PHILISTINES HIT THE ROAD

The bad news is that Dino got back in… somehow.

It can only be explained by reference to the odious NDP political machine, and will no doubt mean more high residential and commercial property taxes if he gets his Globalist agenda supported by the new trio. 

But the good news is that half of his so-called ‘Dean Team’ went down: ex-MP Lynn Hunter and bike fanatic John Luton, both of whom supported his philistine plans to destroy the Johnson Street Bridge, are about to exit the political stage, thank you very much!

Ex-Green Party Councillor Candidate Philippe Lucas is also a Globalist Futurist who wanted to tear down the old bascule, so these losses are really a severe blow to the Mayor’s stimulus plans, I reckon.

Can Dino really count on the hot-headed radical Ben Isitt?

Somehow, I see clashes coming between the staid boring old stimulus-addicted Globalist Socialist Dino (with the sky blue and electric green signs) and the red-haired Socialist historian whose orange signs connoted his unofficial NDP affiliation.

But perhaps the biggest losers of the evening were the Greens, as their unofficial preferred Victoria Mayoral Candidate Steve Filipovic came in third, incumbent Victoria City Councillor Lucas lost his seat as did incumbent Luton (whose signs were bright green this year), and Linda Lisa McGrew,  the only Councillor Candidate on the Open Victoria slate endorsed by the Green Party, did not get elected.

On the other hand, I believe that Steve Filipovic endorsed all three of the winning Councillor Candidates; Shellie Gudgeon, Lisa Helps and Ben Isitt, so that was prescient.

It is my fervent hope that the three new Councillors will challenge the whole new bridge project, and actually try to stop it as financially reckless.

Instead, the new Councillors should join forces with Councillor Young and provide a unified front to convince Councillors Madoff, Coleman, Thornton Joe and perhaps others to change their minds, and to save the old heritage Johnson Street Bridge.

I am particularly interested in seeing how Shellie Gudgeon does on Council, as counter to my published intentions, I decided at the last minute to vote for her, for all the classic counterintuitive reasons…

As a publican already holding a number of liquor licenses in her restaurant businesses, she would not be able to vote on any new liquor license applications without finding herself in a conflict of interest, and she will therefor have to recuse herself in those instances.

All three of these new Councillors are so-called ‘harm reductionists’ so there is really no change on the Council in that regard.

I met and spoke to Shellie Gudgeon about ‘harm reduction’ not long after her campaign office was opened up.

We briefly shared with each other our stories of loved ones in our families lost to overdoses.

So it wasn’t long before we agreed to disagree on the best social health solutions to these nagging problems, but I know her heart is in the right place, and I hope she and other ‘harm reductionists’ eventually come to reject the ‘harm reduction’ nonsense as based on junk science.

Thomas E. Woods Jr. on how poor are prospering: It is by evading the state’s alleged help that the most vulnerable have managed to eke out tolerable livings for themselves.’ @ tomwoods.com

How the Poor Are Prospering by Ignoring the State

This is one of the most interesting and startling articles I have read in a long time.

In the usual version of events, the poor are helpless victims of capitalist exploitation, and only the wise intervention of the state can improve their condition.

The growth of what experts call System D, the unofficial economy that operates outside the state’s arena of taxation and regulation, suggests that the reality is quite different.

It is by evading the state’s alleged help that the most vulnerable have managed to eke out tolerable livings for themselves.
