#Harper’s #CPC #DumpsterFire: #ShyTories vs #LieTories #polls #cdnpoli #elxn42 #GPC #LPC #NDP

Well friends, it seems as if all of our hard work by way of cooperation, collaboration and consultation may have indeed sparked the Harper Regime’s Epic Outta Control Dumpster Fire! At the very least our latest poll diversion efforts have served to be an excellent accelerant by adding fuel within the dissenting ranks within the core of the Regime itself. It almost seems, judging by the varied mixed messages as if there is some sort of controlled demolition occurring. While the fire rages, we’ll try to keep this post, short and sweet while the whole mutha burns.

#Harpers #DumpsterFire 2015
#Harpers #DumpsterFire 2015

Before we begin, let’s not forget who the cowardly copypasta yellow journalists from across the spectrum are on Tuesday so that we may ask some tough questions and/or issue some pink slips. Surely there are more qualified individuals that may have the courage to do some independent investigative research into domestic AND global issues as opposed to the current trend of fear based war-mongering that is being spewed and regurgitated ad nauseum via “anonymous government” sources.

Now, let’s get to the meat and potatoes of this, hopefully last, installment of the DumpHarper! campaign and how it ties into our belligerent title. For this we have to open up some of our strategy guide, but not too much to provide the next Dumpable Regime any strstegic advantages.

The Harper Regime intended to create the same fear/war diversion/division atmosphere it did in the last election but since there global planners did not anticipate the flow of their “Old Stock” interventionist policies, (think WW1), we seemingly have found ourselves as a Nation caught in 2 separate simmering quagmires, one in Syria and the other in the Ukraine. One is brimming with so-called jihadist mercenaries while the other is brimming with so-called neo-nazi mercenaries causing unseen and unimaginable horrors upon the innocent populations.

The sad truth is that “We the People” are funding these foreign endeavours and really our kids and grand-kids cannot afford them and more than likely will decide to default on them. This should serve to be a wake up call to the so-called Boomers, since if push comes to shove, they will be dumped off into the Soylent Green camps. We will simply leave it there for right now so that you may let those thoughts percolate a bit.

Moving forward we need to make a semi-admission with regards to our recent “poll” strategy since the Regime felt it necessary to to bring in the Wizard of Oz as a high paid TFW to run the campaign. This “shy tory” strategy, oddly enough, played right into our strategy which we code named “Operation Lie Tory” for just such an emergency.

So what is a “Lie Tory” you may wonder?

Simply put a “Lie Tory” is someone who willingly infiltrates caucus meetings, inserts false “Armageddon” narratives (lol) into politcos/journalists/thinktanks, fields all calls/emails/polls/etc. plus pledge enduring (loaded) admiration, loyalty and support for Dear Leader Harper and all those within the Regime, aka: ReformaCons, to anyone that will listen to our outlandish tales. The only Harper Party members that were not given this stellar support were the actual “Old Stock” Conservatives within the bunch since they will have to perform the internal Regime purges. (BTW: Our version of “Old Stock” is pretty much the 180 degree opposite of Harper’s version.) You can believe us on that since many of us are traditionally conservative that hold certain fundamental views upon the balance between good governance and fiscal responsibility. In other words, we demand value from our investment by way of taxation. We believe in fair taxation with responsible representation based in the rule of law that benefit our own Nation first and formost. We do NOT believe in unfair taxation without representation that only benefits globalist and internationalist minded investors that do NOT hold any allegiance to Canada nor contribute to our taxation system, period.

As promised, we shall conclude this, hopefully last, installment of the DumpHarper! blog while keeping our eyes pealed for fraudulent and suspicious voting activities and irregularities.

Stephen Harper, Nobel, and Me

When I first heard about Stephen Harper’s “nomination” for the Nobel Peace Prize I laughed. Actually I did a quick Google search about it. Other than the B’nai Brith announcement, there was only one other hit. A RWNJ blog about how the Lefties’ heads were going to collectively explode over this.

“Yeah,” I thought’ “explode with laughter.”

Well it looks like he was partly right. A bunch of people really do have their knickers in a knot over this. There are petitions and blogs and Twitter Wars and all sorts of ranting and raving about this.

What I’m going to do is to ask you to step back a bit and look at this without kneejerk reactions and vehemence.

What does this “nomination” mean?

Nothing much, really.

Other than the fact that some guy (Frank Dimant) is putting up Stephen Harper for the award. There isn’t a lot here to talk about.

When I checked the Nobel site, there are a record 278 nominations this year. 47 of these are organizations and the rest, I assume, are people. What this says to me is that there are going to be a lot of losers. If you are interested in the list of 2014 nominations, the Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO) has a partial list.

This year’s short list, according to PRIO, includes Pope Francis, Malala Yousafzai, the Afghan girl shot by the Taliban for going to school, and others.

Another nominee for the 2014 award is Vladimir Putin. But he’s not on the short list, at least not according to PRIO anyway.

A Nobel nomination is usually for disarmament, or for peacemaking but can also include things like multicultural understanding or food security.

Being a cheerleader for Israel’s retaliation on Palestine or shouting at 2014 Nobel Prize nominee Putin doesn’t really seem to make the cut. Even if Steve wore a short skirt and ferociously waved his blue pompoms, I don’t think he’s going to be a Nobel Laureate.

I’m sure that Harper sees it much differently than I do, but a Nobel nomination is not a huge deal. There have been a few people besides Harper and Putin that most people wouldn’t want to have over for dinner. Past nominees include Hitler, Mussolini who was nominated twice and Stalin who was likewise nominated twice.

So how do you nominate someone? The Nobel Prize Organization’s website gives the rules. Basically, if you or your group want to submit a name, there is a list there of who you need to submit it for you. Your MP is one, a judge or a University Professor (like Frank Dimant) would be another.

So if you want to nominate me for the $1 Million paycheque… kidding, just give it some real thought and don’t go rushing trying to nominate anyone simply because they aren’t Harper. Deal?

Laters!

On second thought, if you want to sign a petition or send an angry email then fire away. Someone needs to take Steve down a peg or two.

Harper Party Spies

To hear the Harper Party loyalists talk, you’d think that the Liberal Party of Canada has a problem. Yet another Liberal has spoken words that don’t echo the words of their leader.

And this is a problem?

Let’s set the scene. A woman asked retired General Andrew Leslie about his thoughts regarding the Israeli Palestine situation. The General gave a long answer including the need for Israel to be able to defend herself from terrorists, such as Hamas, but he also blamed the Israeli military for the deaths of civilians in Palestine.

I guess the General didn’t realize that he was talking with a Harper Party spy. Looking to get whatever dirt she could dig up on a noted Liberal contender for the 2015 Election and she hit the mother lode! This guy thinks the Israeli military shouldn’t have killed Palestinian civilians!

What a horrid thought. No mere MP much less a noted advisor to Stephen Harper would say such a thing. No, Stephen’s troops would blindly parrot the talking points issued from the unelected, appointed, not ready for big boy pants crew in the PMO.

Nope, they’d swallow their gumption and say whatever their Leader says they should say. Here are your pompoms and here’s your script: “Israel is good, Palestinians are bad and they all deserve to die.”

Rah Team!

The problem with the Harper Party antics is that General Leslie is right. As a professional soldier, trained in the military, he knows the rules and one of the biggies is that every effort must be undertaken to prevent civilian casualties or “collateral damage” as they like to say today.

What is even more horrid is the tactics that the Harper Team are stooping to in an attempt to try and demonize the Liberal Party.

While the Harper Party complains about the liberal media and “gotcha journalism” they are stepping down several rungs with these Secret Agent X19 tactics. Sneak a recording device in and try and get the enemy to say something that can be used against them. And then try to get the so called incriminating evidence into the public eye.

The Harperistas didn’t send their ill gotten booty to the media, not at first; they tried to hand it over to a prominent Jewish organization who put the kibosh on that plan. They were smart enough to not get involved in petty politics, maybe they can read the writing on the wall or maybe they just don’t like the idea of being used as a dupe for the Harper Party?

So they went with Plan B. Hand the audio over to the Sun News Network, the finest investigative journalists this side of 1972 Pravda. And the Sun News Crew was more than happy to jump all over this.

The Harper People crow about this, they see nothing wrong, they just want people to know what goes on in the opposing camp. What they don’t say is that this is putting a chilling effect on Democracy in Canada.

It is hard enough to get a politician to say anything in public now, they don’t want to annoy the Boss, but in the future, every politician of every stripe is going to be guarded in what they say lest there be a secret agent nearby. And when they’re done with the named politicians, they can start on those who are merely considering running for office.

Seriously, it is hard to get a politician to comment on the weather anymore. What with having to consider if this stretch of warm weather is bad for the farmers and so on it takes them tem minutes to come up with “Yep, nice weather.” It is getting to the point that some politicians cannot scratch their butt without a note from the PMO.

Real boats rock, Steve. Having people within a party who hold differing opinions is not a bad thing, it is part of Democracy. Any Leader, be it in politics or business that surrounds themselves with kowtowing lackies soon finds themselves on the outside looking in.

But your echo boxes are half right. How can Canadians decide on which candidate is best for their riding if we don’t know how they think and what they feel about the issues that we care about? Simply put they can’t.

I am comfortable in voting for someone who has the wits and courage to speak their mind in public. It means that they have the ability to speak up for me in the House and in the Caucus. These are not your people, Steve.

They are mine.

And for what it’s worth, there are an awful lot of people like me who think that the killing and wounding of civilians is wrong. It doesn’t matter which side does it.

I like General Leslie a hell of a lot more that any echo box you have to offer.

Ta ta for now,
BC

Letter to Harper re: Palestine

Dear Stephen.

It’s been a while since I last wrote, but I was wondering about some things and I hope that you can help me with them.

Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot in the news about the situation between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Frankly, there is much here that I don’t understand, but mainly I don’t understand your position on all of this.

You might want to call me anti-Semitic because I am not pro-Israel or because I’m not anti-Palestinian but you’d be mistaken. I have nothing against the people of the Jewish Faith any more than people who are Christians or Muslims for that matter.

What I am though is anti hate.

Look Stephen, I’ll agree that for the Hamas militants to fire rockets into Israel is wrong, but is the bombing of the Palestinians right? The response of the Israeli government to the Hamas rockets, some 300 or 400 I understand, has been the dropping of hundreds of Israeli bombs on Palestine. The response of the death of 10 Israelis has been the deaths of hundreds of Palestinians.

My question is when will it end? Will it end when the last Palestinian lies dead in the street because there is no one left to bury him?

What do you think history will say if this occurs?

Will Benjamin Netanyahu be celebrated as a great hero, or will his name be listed alongside other notables like Stalin?

What will history have to say about Stephen Harper, if it even remembers you at all?

If history is nice, you might be remembered as a Neville Chamberlain type. You had the ear of Mr. Netanyahu but chose to support him rather than to create a lasting peace in the Middle East. If history is cruel, you could end up being Mr. Netanyahu’s Mussolini.

Even the Americans, the staunchest of Israel’s supporters are trying to get the offending sides to sit down and work out a compromise, and yet you distance Our stance from theirs.

You seem to support the Israeli government with an almost religious fervour and that troubles me.

You, me, the Israeli government, and Hamas all have something in common. Our religions are all derived from the God of Abraham. We are all related. We share a common God.

Does that bother you? It bothers the Hell out of me.

These are rival factions of the same family beating the life out of each other and it appears that the one side has the power to do the other in.

And you? You’re cheering them on.

They tell me there is a special place in Hell for those who do nothing when evil occurs. Do you suppose there is a worse place for those who cheer on the evil doers?

We are told that Jesus said “Blessed are the peacemakers” so why aren’t we working towards peace in stead of sending Mr. Baird to the UN to chastise those who want the fighting to stop?

While I’m thinking of the Bible, there are very few actual words of God recorded. I mean quotes like “Thou shalt not kill.”

Or are you one of those who believe in the “end times”? Are you looking forward to the Apocalypse and think that the Balkanization of the Middle East is just another step on that journey?

How long can this situation between Israel and Palestine go on until someone says “Enough” and takes up arms in support of one side or the other? And then the fun begins…

I really don’t fear God unleashing the Apocalypse. God promised Noah that He would never again eradicate humankind after the great flood.

If God is all powerful and hates the unbelievers the way some think He does, why does He allow them to have children? Why wouldn’t He just wave his hand and render all the offending religions and Nations barren? Within decades there would be no one left to fight, only the Chosen Ones would remain.

No, if there is to be an Apocalypse, it will be caused by man and fought by man. If Jesus should arrive at the end, I doubt that he will be dressed in armour and riding a white steed. He’ll more likely be dressed in a poor man’s robes, ministering to the sick and dying.

He’ll likely be preaching again too.

“Look what the word of man hath wrought. Come to me and let us create a new world where we can live in peace.”

I doubt that you’ll be invited Stephen.

Laters,

BC

#opTeaKettle: Oxidize the #cdnpoli Narrative [DRAFTv15] #SocialMedia #Kettling

#opTeaKettle vs. #cdnpoli #SocialMedia #Kettling

Did ya ever feel like your being directed, distracted and herded into a pen?

Are you on The Stephen Harper Conservative Party Enemy Hit List?

Please Note: Before you proceed, begin investigating and spread the hashtag to inspire and encourage others. Do NOT forget to share comments below, it’s free!

So here we are, right where “We the People” always eventually end up before we get fed up. The problem is that when we finally get fed up enough, the “game” quickly shifts gears and changes. One might think that this shifting of the gears accelerates or slows down the “narrative” when in fact the gears, within the apparatus of the machine, that has become so odious, slam into reverse. That’s where “kettling” enters the fray and where begins.

“We the People” seem, kinda, like a manufactured disposable commodity to be utilized as a resource to be exploited to manufacture invisible wealth?


Summary: The Kettle

Now many are familiar with the term “kettling” as it related to protests, the G8/G20 variety in particular, if not please read the brief explanations below:

Hopefully, as we continue drafting this article, the short summary above has exposed an event that is occurring exponentially and rapidly, in real time, right now via social media. Continue reading #opTeaKettle: Oxidize the #cdnpoli Narrative [DRAFTv15] #SocialMedia #Kettling

#cdnpoli Harper Demands Manic Sycophancy from MPs

This points to another element of Harper’s leadership style: to serve him you must first master the “sit and stay” command, then faithfully regurgitate any fabrication put before you.

Clement and Day do this well, although few can match the manic sycophancy of John Baird or Pierre Poilievre.

Wikileaks And The DRIC Smoking Guns (Part 2): A Windsor Square Exclusive

Here are the key excerpts from the relevant documents as disclosed in Wikileaks.

There are relatively few documents but the story they tell is very disturbing. I try to put each one in a context for you and try to explain to you how everything fits together. I want you to be able to make sense of it all so that you will understand the significance.

I apologize. It is a very long and ugly read. But very essential. It is very disturbing when you cut through it all and see how Governments really operate. It is fascinating that such disclosures have been made. Clearly, no one in the public was ever expected to read this material so we can learn things that were to be kept secret from us. Tell the public one thing, act another way behind the scenes.

How can people act this way in a supposedly democratic society? How can they look at themselves in the mirror in the morning? How do they justify their actions?

I am so sorry to do it to you again. This is an exceptionally long tale to tell and to discuss with you so I have broken it down into 2 parts. It is well worth your time to read both of them. I will post one part today and the balance tomorrow. I will give you, dear reader, the descriptive overview in this Article and all of the gory details with a full explanation to put everything in a context tomorrow.

I would suggest that you may want to read this over coffee or at lunch. Better yet, print both parts out and take them home with you and read them in the evening rather than watching one of those silly sitcoms or reality TV programs. You will want to tak…
