Budget Day 2012 was a very strange but sadly ordinary day in Harper Land. Stay Tuned, it will take a while to digest it. And, since they aren't very thorough, and ignore evidence, it is bound to have a lot of unintended CONsequences. For one thing, we are going to have to listen to the phrase 'Nickel Back' even more often. He always throws his friends a bone.
Now that Non Cons can read it, We will see just exactly who, and how many Canadians that it does leave penniless. The numbers might surprise you.

What Does That Mean?
Should be a Cakewalk.
Canadians, or so the story goes, would never be 'fooled by criminals into electing them'. Canadians are in fact quite mistaken in this assumption and it is all due to the fact that dishonesty, deceit, denial and obfuscation are so foreign to us and the very cornerstones of the Conservative Party of Canada. And those are not the ways of most of us, so we are reluctant to believe that they are really cheating us.
But, if the evidence that CBC's Terry Milewski released Thursday night, is what it appears to be, then that cheating and that election fraud is systemic and systematic and apparently they are very good at it!

But None of it went Unsubstantiated.

when anyone suggests
that they are not above racial slurs.
In the Current round of the Harper Government's claims that they are being victimised and are the object of unsubstantiated smears, most Canadians now seem to understand that that is not the case. Does that mean that Canadians are actually getting to know Mr. Harper and his dysfunctional caucus? How I wish it did.
Not until there is a full Public Inquiry into the RoboCon Affair that gets to the bottom of the tactics used and sheds much needed light on the elements of the Conservative Party that owe their campaign tactics to one of Americas leading right wing hacks, Karl Rove, and leave them and those tactics naked and known to be what they really are, will we have satisfied our curiosity. At that point I believe all those "smears" will have been substantiated. Most previous smears of this Government's name have been.
find out all about him at Wikipedia, to need to say much, but I can show a short clip that illustrates some of the vibe that surrounds him.
Was this video producer Smearing him or his Party?
Or is it an indignant but Satirical Statement of Fact?

No one in the Main Stream Media seems completely satisfied with that, but it does not apparently occur to any of them that it would obviously be known to the recipient of the calls that it was Not the Cons doing it. As I type this I am listening to a vacuous (name withheld) CBC announcer talking about it as if it is some great and powerful transgression that shows that the Liberals were doing something illegal and that that favours the Cons in there effort to cloud the discussion. That is Nonsense.
Yet they just keep discussing it as if Dean Del Mastro had a clue about any of the subtleties of this and that he may be right in saying what we have all heard him saying and repeating endlessly and mindlessly for days on end. That Dean Del Mastro was being sincere is not even a possibility.
Why did it NOT occur to any of them that by not identifying themselves, they left the door wide open for the householder to mistakenly think it may have been the NDP that had called them? Now stay with me here. There are only two possibilities.
1.) The householder receiving the call was passionately anti-choice. And you can call it pro-life if you prefer, but to me it is anti-choice, and that is another argument that we can have later ~ In which case they would not be swayed from voting conservative, and may even have switched to the conservatives from another choice that they had already somewhat decided upon After all only the conservatives are anti-choice, and not all of them are of course, but had they been, they would definitely have been CPC.
2.) The householder who received the call was pro-choice. In that case they would want this information, which as you see above was accurate, and actually was provided willingly by Mr. Burke These people would have, especially after hearing this, voted for anyone but Mark Burke. They may even have been thankful for the information and voted for the party that provided that information. But since they forgot to identify the calling party, that vote could just as easily have gone to any other party, including the flying Spaghetti monsters.
So, in reality it was a disadvantage to Valeriote to have failed to self identify. And certainly Not some cunning scheme to cheat anyone.
But if this robocall affair (which I prefer to call the RoboCon Affair) has raised another concern, it may just be that it is time that we abandoned, or at the very least, demanded much more from the MSM than we have been getting from them lately. The Conservatives are doing their best to muddy the waters and the main stream media is doing nothing to provide the clarity that we all need and deserve.
That brings us to one other little thing. How many times a day do you hear the MSM say that we are not engaged, or that we are in the dark, or that we just do not care, or that this kind of issue tends to leave us not caring? Five? Ten? Twenty?
Don't laugh. I counted 35 times yesterday, and so far three times today, but hey, I spend 12 to 16 hours a day tuned in to MSM politics while on-line being heard and listening to and interacting with Canadians from coast to coast. And I can tell you this much.
Canadian politics will start to heal only when we the people get off of our asses and help it heal and far from being a reason to disengage, the state of politics in this country, and the sad fact that the conservatives, at least the Big C ones, are no longer progressive and the obvious fact that they are connected to American politics, ideology and scandalous tactics is not a reason to give up on Canada and it's politics.
If anything, it should help to crystallize in our minds the absolute need to become engaged, if not enraged, more aware and not be caught sitting back while others with far less to lose steal our fragile and vital democracy.
Most of us do not have to answer to an editor, an office manger, and advertiser, a board of directors, or share holders or political bullies, but there are those among us that do. And there is no way that we should ever feel that we have to answer to them.
We need to help change that dynamic and we need to let it be known that it is we citizens to whom the debt is owed. I want a mainstream media that is either driven into the background or who evolves and becomes a catalyst for our re engagement.
They really should know enough and be free enough from interference to inspire us to get involved, but many of them are also on the side of the vote suppressors, whether by choice or by circumstance.
Oh, I gotta go. That odd daytime CBC lady just referred to Harper's "pledge to pass the Omnibus (more at Ominous) Crime Bill" which is IMO more of a threat than a pledge. and so should our awakening be more of a threat to wake up every Canadian than a pledge to support the dismal political atmosphere created by this dismal Harper Government!
I may be one of the few that sees reason for hope in the abject hopelessness that is the Harper Government.
And while you are at it. Please help us to Pressure Elections Canada to release the name of the despot or despots who thought it would be within the rules to divest anyone of their right to vote. And Please join with other Canadians to get the harper Government to call a Royal Commission to get to the bottom of this an fix it so that Nothing Like this ever happens again!
If the so called Pierre Poutine did indeed come forward yesterday, as he said he would, and if he did indeed confess to something that everyone in the country knows to be a crime, then charge him immediately and unless he is a minor, Release his Name. We have waited for the answer to his identity long enough as it is.

Republican Interference? ~ The View from the Front Porch Looking North ~ This is Not just Voter Engagement
|Julius Caesar Crossed the Rubicon |
on January 10th, 49 B.C.
which turned out to be One river too far.
So, why do modern men still cross lines
that Precipitate their Own Undoing?
To me, their tell-tale shared backward looking Ideology and all that they both promote sheds light on the very heart of the Robocon Scandals that include not only Tele Town Halls as well as Robocalls, but a whole litany of other unreported activities.
There is much more than an exchange of services happening here. There is much in this relationship that speaks of a growing connection between the Harper Conservatives and the Right, American Conservative Movement. A look at some of the Issues that Front Porch Strategies promotes shows a very close relationship to the American Religious Right and the big money of the Republicans and shows their passionate interest in dredging up a lot of issues that Canadians have long since felt were already settled. Many of them are issues that even Harper claims are already settled. According to Harper for instance there is no reason or plans to resurect the abortion debate.
Here are just a few screen shots taken from the very public facebook Page of Front Porch Strategies. Just a few pictures to whet your appetite.
What is the Heartbeat Bill? ~ This from the Companies official Public Facebook page:
So what other issues do they promote? Well they are seemingly in lock-step with the Harper government's views on Israel vs. Palestine and openly lobby on Facebook for more support for Israel, and less consideration for Palestinians and are clearly promoting a very unbalanced approach.
I am having a hard time to decide which clip of Newt Gingrich best typifies his incredibly dangerous and dismal Ideology. Should I raise his racist rants? Should I talk about his stupid take on taxes, his attacks on Muslims, or his outrageous treatment of both of his ex-wives? There are just so many clips, and so little time. Of course all of those topics are open game in america. And again I want to ask you to ask yourself if you think that any company that so actively and passionately promotes nothing but Right wing Ideologues is not very likely to have more than just a business relationship with those who share that Right Wing Ideology?
At any rate I picked this clip because it shows how very practical he can be. This was just moments after his having lost the Republican Primary on Jan. 31st, 2012 in Florida: (Unofficial 100 percent) Mitt Romney 46.42 percent (775,014), Newt Gingrich 31.9 percent (533,117), Rick Santorum 13.3 percent (222,799), Ron Paul 7 percent (117,104), other 1.3 percent (21,613). ).
|Wondering Why the Christian Alliance seems so familiar?|
|Harper looking None too Happy |
to be photographed
outside of Alliance Church
Since Harper moved in 2003 to Ottawa, he has been attending the capital city's Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, called East Gate, under the guidance of Pastor Bill Buitenwerf.
On the outside, RockPointe Church looks like a bunker. On the inside, it's a cavernous auditorium with no crosses, altar or pulpit. Instead it has a "stage" on which its many pastors champion conservative moral values while strolling like casual talk-show hosts, remarking on how "cool" things are, exclaiming "Right on!" and referring to adherents as "You guys."
Trask believes the more than 2,000 evangelical Protestants in his thriving church, as well as most of the 2.5 million evangelicals across the country, are enthusiastic supporters of his old friend, the prime minister. "Read more:

And yet Another Contradiction by Front Porch Strategies who have Categorically Denied that they even Make
So, do you still think that the Harper Government has no idea what went on with all the calls that they paid for during the election?
They seem pretty damned well organized to me, even taking the time to thank the company that was kind enough to bring American attitudes and issues right to their door. Are you comfortable with front Porch Strategies importing their Pro-life and Anti-Palestine campaign here?
They do as you may remember, also promote Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum.
What Could Be Less Canadian Than That?
I just wanted to add one final worry about this American Right wing spin machine. They have been saying for a week that they do NOT do Robocalls and only did Tele-Town-Halls on behalf of the Conservatives. As you have just seen that clearly is the case. Oddly they still deny having such capabilities, but they need to be careful what they say on publicly on Facebook.

Stick around and we'll jog yer memory! He even personally broke the Election Law on May 2, 2011at 1136 PM ET.
Have another look at evidence clearly showing Harper campaigning illegally on Election day 2011!
And he was talking about the fresh news that Osama was dead. If there is anything that reaches out to his kind of crowd, it is news that opponent has been slain. Revenge is a powerful Right Wing aphrodisiac. Note at the end that he gets schooled by a citizen after putting in a shameless plug at the end of the interview.
To me it is hard evidence. There is also much evidence that to the Cons, the concept of evidence is a hard one to get! We can't change them, but we do out-number them. We must concert ourselves to that end.
Seriously, Election Fraud is no harder to prove than all of the other fraud that they have so openly committed! Their entire tenure as the government has been fraught with dismal lapses of reason, ethics or direction. This blog is full of such information.

|It Turns out that the Famous Conservative call centre company|
(Responsive Marketing Group in Thunder Bay )
has a checkered legal history in U.S.
Media reports say Elections Canada is broadening its investigation of harassing telephone calls in Guelph to include former employees of Responsive Marketing Group in Thunder Bay, who called the RCMP to report concerns about calls they were making to direct voters to the wrong polling stations.
RMG issued a statement late Wednesday night asserting that it did not engage in voter suppression calls in the campaign and saying the company would contact Elections Canada to work with the agency.
Doug Finley praised this company loudly just last week. Hmmm..... Doug Finely, that rings a bell.
