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.

‘I’m not proud to be Canadian: Have I broken any new IOC laws?’ HARTNELL asks HARPER






Brad Cran, the principled Vancouver Poet Laureate who castigated the draconian curtailments of free expression by VANOC and the IOC during the so-called ‘Cultural Olympiad,’ and then removed himself from any of the events, mentioned the late great Anglo-Canadian anarchist writer George Woodcock in his jeremiad at Vancouver Verse [see link in Comments below].

Woodcock was a friend of another famous English writer that called himself ‘George Orwell’, that being Eric Blair.

Both were passionate defenders of free speech against the constant threats it faces from totalitarian governments, whether of the right, the left or the centre.

Now in Canada the common wisdom is that to win election in this middle-class country, one must find the mythical centrist voters, the so-called ‘moderates,’ and only by doing this can one’s party be assured of electoral victory.

Both the so-called ‘Conservatives’ and the so-called ‘Liberals’ propagate this myth that they are the real Canadian ‘moderate’ or ‘centrist’ parties representing the best interests of the Canadian people.

If the current glut of wasteful unaccounntable spending on these unholy Games is the best one can expect from a supposedly ‘moderate’ or ‘centrist Canadian Conservative’ goverment, one wonders what distinguishes these ‘Canadian’ and ‘Conservative’ Games from those recently held in Communist China?

Same bunch of international gangstas (IOC) operating in the same obnoxious manner, as far as this Pacifican is concerned.

No accountability whatsoever, in fact, the exact opposite.

Every time Rogge or Furlong open their mouths they spout lies.

So, no, Mr. Harper, I am not proud to be a Canadian when your government wages unjust war against Afghanistan, and condones and hides torture there.

I am not proud that you bullied the pushover Governor General twice into shutting Parliament when it best suited your personal agenda.

I am not proud that the streets of this once great country are littered with thousands of  desperate mentally ill and addicted people, improperly housed, and condemned to a nightmare existence of petty crime, police and court records, unemployment, homelessness and premature death… all while you crazed and hardhearted hawkish jocks have your obscene and creepy sport cult bachanale.

Doping athletes, posturing politicians with hands full of free tickets paid for by taxpayers who can’t afford the folly themselves, pimps and prostitutes flying in from all points, and the  imperious IOC dictating to all governments through its local proxy gangsta outfit called VANOC.

There is something seriously wrong with this picture.

It makes me ashamed to be a ‘Canadian.’

LEONARD COHEN INSPIRED POETS TO CREATE ‘PEACE PAPER’: Milton Acorn, bill bissett, Pierre Coupey, Gerry Gilbert, Rick Kitaeff formed Georgia Straight with Dan McLeod in 1967



Michael Buckley credits Montreal Jewish Zen troubadour – crooner Leonard Cohen with having inspired a loose-knit group of Pacifican hippy poets in Vancouver to have created a new ‘peace paper,’ in one of twenty five Famous Literary Visitors found in the current number of B. C. Bookworld.

Here is the excerpt from page nine in the Summer number of the free publication found on B. C. Ferries and in most bookstores in the province…



AND HE SHOWED US where to look among the garbage and the flowers…

The story goes that Dan McLeod and like-minded counter-culturalists decided to start a ‘peace paper’ at a Vancouver party following a poetry reading by Leonard Cohen in February of 1967.

The first organizational meeting was held at the home of Rick Kitaeff on March 30, 1967.

This subsequently gave rise to a cooperatively managed newspaper called the Georgia Straight, later controlled and owned by McLeod.  

The history is fuzzy, but certainly the newspaper had literary beginnings.  Other poets involved in its creation included bill bissett – whose blewointmentpress printed a handbill advertising an open organizational meeting for April 2 1967 – as well as Pierre Coupey, Gerry Gilbert and Milton Acorn.
