Bombshell: Liberals rewarding their friends using taxdollars under the guise of "Relocation Services"? -- 2.25 BILLION for "Relocation Services": Going to Luxury Hotels, Spas, Golf Resorts 01/01/06 via Newsbeat1, SmallDeadAnimals



Besides van line contracts for the Department of National Defense, our money is being spent for some pretty over the top accommodations/vacation spots. Just look at some of the contracts awarded by Public Works and billed as "relocation services": [. . . . ]




Now, what was going on here? The Star leans toward the Liberals ... Is it a case of mustn't bite the hand that feeds us?

Memory Lane: Torstar Sale Of Surplus Land



TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 12, 2005) - Torstar Corporation (TSX:TS.NV.B) announced today that it has signed an agreement to sell surplus land located at 7 Queen's Quay East in Toronto to the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation for a total consideration of $12.2 million. [. . . . ]


Let's see, now, there has been a scandal involving travel by the principals involved with the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation ... posted within the last two months on this site. I guess it is no wonder The Star supports the Liberals ... Better check further.




What is your response to this Liberal candidate?

Alghabra Liberal candidate -- "the fact that some alarming Islamist declarations were made in connection with Alghabra's victory." And the Star missed this even though it had a reporter present at the Dec. 1 event. Imagine, Gordon postulates, that a Conservative candidate in a similar spirit of celebration had called his win a "victory for Christianity" – how the Star would have been all over that!



[. . . . ] Ezra Levant gives five instances of Alghabra's Islamist-leaning record at the Western Standard's blog:

Alghabra has condemned CanWest newspapers for labelling groups like Hamas and Hizbollah "terrorist" groups;

Alghabra has welcomed al-Jazeera to Canada and railed against any restrictions on it, but condemned the CRTC for allowing the "abusive" Fox News Channel in;

In the wake of the Arab riots at Concordia that shut down a speech by former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Alghabra had the temerity to blame Jewish students for silencing campus discussions, and supported an Arab conference on campus whose stated mission was the elimination of Israel;
There is more.

Anne Bayefsky: Doing Business with Iran -- Top U.N. officials responsible for nuclear nonproliferation are facilitating Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. Jan. 16, 06



Backstabbing by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan reached another low-water mark late last week, as Annan worked furiously to undo European and American efforts to bring Iran before the Security Council. Reminiscent of his 1998 comment after visiting Saddam Hussein, "I think I can do business with him," Annan told reporters on Thursday: "I had a 40-minute conversation with Mr. [Ali] Larijani, the Iranian negotiator of the nuclear issue. ...He in turn affirmed to me that they are interested in serious and constructive negotiations..." He later explained, "the negotiations relate to the EU3," Britain, France, and Germany.

[. . . . ] Joining Annan in lobbying hard to keep Iran away from the Council has been his sidekick Mohammed ElBaradei, the director general of the IAEA.


Link for the sorry details.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Association responsible for monitoring nuclear sites and related matters does NOT want any action on Iran by the Security council? Why does anyone take the UN seriously? PM, are you listening?

Kyoto Accord: "It is highly weighted on the bureacracy/administration side. Lot of middlemen to scam (think gun registry boondoggle on an exponential scale)" caspar34, Jan. 17, 06



It is just a wealth transfer device. Example from AB/SK to Que/ON. From Canada to Russia and China. You don't have to reduce just buy credits.

Will increase regional tensions between East and West.

Will be very costly in terms of percentage of GDP.

It doesn't include China, USA of India or developing counties.

This is bang on! There are other comments.


Voting Stations Axed at U of T !


Because concerns about the legality of the special stations were first expressed by members of Liberal Tony Ianno's campaign, and not Elections Canada, canceling the campus stations may have had a clear political motivation. Ianno is running for re-election in Trinity-Spadina (the larger of U of T's two St. George ridings).

[....] Students in Trinity-Spadina may call their returning officer at 1-866-281-5088 for information on their nearest poll and on how to vote without the residence stations.


Never underestimate how low a desperate Lieberal may stoop, if desperate. Check the rest.


The Khadr family -- immigration

Scroll down for BCNU2 who summarizes the situation well.


Liberals, under Trudeau, essentiallly opened up our doors to immigrants from all corners of the globe.

The "official" reason given? [. . . . ]


The real reason is because Trudeau, that sorcerer's apprentice himself, wanted to smash the power of English Canada, and he has definitely done that, with his successive accomplices in the federal government. A side benefit of this plan is that immigrants generally continue to vote for the party that allowed them to come here: the Libs.

So the circle is complete: Libs bring in tons of immigrants, more than can be assimilated, they vote Liberal. Liberals stay in power, and bring in more immigrants. More immigrants vote in more Liberals, Liberals maintain power.
And so on. [. . . . ]



From Sensforever: "Elinor Caplan Fiberal Immigration Minister from Scarborough and her husband was an immigration lawyer"

Would that not have been a rather obvious conflict of interest for a Minister of Immigration? The CSL Barbados situation never stopped Finance Minister at the time, Paul Martin, so I suppose, it was not even a consideration for Liberals.


Some Points On Alberta Separation quebec1, Foxers and others


Liberal's Hidden Agenda "Liberal's Hidden Agenda: Desire for a feminized and dependent nation." BCNU2



From an old, National Review Online article from the U.S., eerily prophetic:

http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment080200a.shtml

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE IN CANADA

[. . . . ] The Canadian nation has always prided itself on tolerance. The mean-spirited intolerance that animates Canada's anti-gun-owner laws is helping many Canadians understand something that some of their British ancestors figured out back in 1215 with King John and the Magna Carta: There comes a time when a man who loves his country must tell his government, "Stop. Not one bit further."

http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment080200a.shtml


A second quote from another post



One motive for registration is simply a crass — although perhaps mistaken — political calculation that there are more urban female votes to be gained by attacking "masculine" culture than there are rural male votes to be lost. Indeed, polling research of Canadian gun-control supporters shows them to be almost perfectly ignorant of Canada's already-strict gun-control laws; their main motive for wanting more gun control is not the expectation that people will be safer, but their desire to express their antipathy for "macho" values.


Ye gods! Here's one woman who sees macho values as positive, that they bring us men who complement [not compliment, note] women, the males who bring the male perspective, skills and aspects of character that, with a woman's skills and abilities lead to happy pair bonding, homes and families. Many women are not enamoured with the feminized males; they want someone to share with, to form a whole person, so to speak.

Nor do they want Big Brother stepping in to take over their lives.


This just about encapsulates it. guns and politics - funny -- simply a hoot -- Send a copy to every Liberal who talks about root causes after someone is shot. caspar34



Liberals, Conservatives and Residents of Alberta

I Pose the following question:

You are walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small
children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes
around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a Glock 40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?

Liberal Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the
man look poor or depressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? [. . . . ]



Mr. Ignatieff -- Here's a tongue-in-cheek response from a letter writer to the phony 'I'm one of you, Canadians', that Michael Ignatieff wrote in the Post on Saturday: rosemarie59




Very Troubling

Open borders, closed minds Tony Blankley, Jan. 18, 06, Editorial



[. . . . ] Mr. Seper [Washington Times ] reports that: "The U.S. Border Patrol has warned agents in Arizona of incursions into the U.S. by [heavily armed] Mexican [military units]... 'trained to escape, evade and counterambush' if detected..." The Border Patrol also cautioned its agents to keep "a low profile" to use "cover and concealment" in approaching the Mexican military units, "to employ shadows and camouflage to conceal themselves and stay as quiet as possible."

As a red-blooded naturalized U.S. citizen (OK, perhaps slightly bluish-red), I felt my questionably hued blood boiling at the report that our Border Patrol has been instructed to hide and stay as quiet as possible in the face of a foreign military incursion. [. . . . ]

"intrusions by the Mexican military to protect drug loads happen all the time and represent a significant threat to the agents." He went on to say the incursions were not accidents, as the Mexican military has global positioning systems. [. . . . ]




Al-Qaida On Line Two Jan. 17, 06



[. . . . ] The American people, if not Al Gore, understand that the fact that there have been no terrorist attacks on American soil since 9-11 is not blind luck, but the result of Bush taking Congress seriously when it authorized him to use "all necessary" means to fight terrorism.

We don't know about Gore, but if someone like Ayman al-Zawahri, al-Qaida's second in command, calls somebody in, say, Toledo, we want those charged with keeping us alive and free to be listening in.
