Netanyahu’s Big Gamble

In pursuing the strategy of preserving the perception of the Iranian threat in order to maintain the special relationship with the United States, Netanyahu is pursuing strategies that sabotage America’s own foreign policy interests...

By going over President Obama’s head to Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is taking a big gamble, apparently hoping that he can block any U.S. rapprochement with Iran and heighten tensions in the Middle East, a strategy that lacks both facts and logic, says Ted Snider.

Obama Incites Bloodshed in Venezuela

The US special services together with their “assistants” from Canada and Great Britain tried again to stage a coup in Venezuela. In the middle of February, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said the national security services frustrated the plans of US embassy and put an end to its hostile actions. As a result, a number of people were arrested, including Venezuelan air force officers and activists of radical opposition. The subversive activities were guided by Western diplomatic missions. The names of those behind the plot are known but they cannot be brought to justice being protected by diplomatic immunity. The President said the plotters wanted to assassinate him. The United States embassy guaranteed that the perpetrators would be granted asylum in America.

Canada Considers Sending Troops to Ukraine

As the United States and Britain prepare to send advisors to support the Ukrainian military, Canada seriously considers doing the same. But many Canadian lawmakers are leery of becoming further involved in a conflict half-way around the world.

Canada Quietly Tiptoeing into Ukraine Civil War

As debate over Canada’s role in the latest Iraq war rages, Ottawa is quietly being drawn into a second, more dangerous, conflict.

That second war is in Ukraine. The U.S. and Britain are sending military advisers there to help Ukraine’s embattled central government fight Moscow-backed secessionists. Defence Minister Jason Kenney says Canada might do the same.

Kenney told both Global News and the CBC that any Canadian soldiers in Ukraine would stay far away from the fighting.

This, of course, is the same assurance that the government gave last fall when it dispatched 69 commandos to advise Kurdish troops in Iraq. As it turned out, those advisers did end up under fire on the front lines.

Snowden Document Reveals Huge Scope of Canada's Domestic Surveillance

Canada's electronic spy agency, the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), collects millions of emails and other information from its citizens and stores them for "days to months," according to a document leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and revealed by CBC News in collaboration with The Intercept on Wednesday.

QUEBEC: Education minister who backed high school strip searches quits politics and returns to medicine

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA (Toronto Globe and Mail): “I took a personal decision to return to practising medicine,” Bolduc told reporters without taking any questions. “It’s a decision that was my own and given all that’s going on … I took the decision to return to practising medicine, which I love.”

Bolduc has been seen as a source of embarrassment for the governing Liberals in recent days after comments he made about strip searches at schools.

Last week, Bolduc said strip searches were permitted in Quebec high schools as long as they were conducted in a manner that was “very respectful” to the student. The issue surfaced after a 15-year-old girl told Le Journal de Québec she felt violated after being strip-searched because the school suspected her of selling drugs.

COMER UPDATE - Federal Court of Appeal Decision — January 26, 2015

Since the Federal Court of Appeal fully upheld the decision of Justice Russell dated April 24, 2014, Justice Russell’s decision stands. I refer everyone to my summary of that decision on COMER’s website.

What that means is that we are entitled to proceed with our action, subject to me drafting and filing an amended Statement of Claim with the Federal Court, which will be done shortly.

In short, and in summary, the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal is a victory for COMER to proceed. (While the government can seek leave of the Federal Court of Appeal’s decision to the Supreme Court of Canada, to date no such indication has been conveyed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those just finding out about COMER (which Canada has been trying to block and ban from both corporate and independent media) , the Bank of Canada is supposed to provide interest-free loans to the Canadian governments for infrastructure development. But starting in the 1970s, the Canadian government started getting their loans from privately owned banks, and forcing Canadian taxpayers to pay the interest! The COMER lawsuit seeks to force the Canadian government to avail itself of the interest-free loans mandated by the charter for the Bank of Canada, and so far the courts have agreed that COMER is correct.

The Canadian government has banned this subject from the Canadian corporate media, and emails from Canada report that links to stories about COMER are blocked inside Canada as well. This is to keep the Canadian people from finding out about this scandal as they would likely ask why the Canadian government would do such a thing, and so far the only answer seems to be, "We decided to loot the taxpayers and give it to the private banks because the private bankers write really generous campaign donation checks every election!"

Needless to say, this would not sit very well with the already over-taxed Canadian people!

Jeb Bush Wouldn't Hesitate to Start 'Third Bush War'

In response to a question, the former Florida governor said his family ties would not prohibit him from engaging in armed conflict in the Middle East.

(*The way this family assumes ownership of the nation , it sounds to me like when it commences , it will be known as Bush War III rather than WWIII , and family ties will have everything to do with it . )

Harper urges swift passage of anti-terror bill as NDP calls for full study

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is urging a House of Commons committee to study the government's anti-terror bill as quickly as possible, in spite of accusations the Conservatives are using their majority to rush the legislation onto the books.

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair told the Commons on Tuesday it is essential to scrutinize the bill, and asked Harper to ensure that security and human rights experts are not only heard, but also heeded.

The Conservatives brought in the bill — which would significantly expand the powers of Canada's spy agency — following the murders of two Canadian soldiers last October.

The bill would also make it easier for authorities to control the movements of terror suspects, expand no-fly list powers, crack down on extremist propaganda and outlaw encouraging someone to commit a terrorist act.

Bill C-51 threatens to sacrifice liberty for security

Four former Canadian prime ministers (including a Conservative) and five former Supreme Court justices have warned Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper that protecting the security of Canadians and their most important freedoms is not a zero sum game.

In their own words criticizing his anti-terrorism legislation, Bill C-51, they warn: “Protecting human rights and protecting public safety are complementary objectives, but experience has shown that serious human rights abuses can occur in the name of maintaining national security.”

The Destabilization Doctrine: ISIS, Proxies and Patsies

Israel has essentially used the United States as a cat’s paw in the Middle East, manipulating America’s Leviathan military to smash up her enemies.

In the past week we have witnessed a number of expedient events that were designed to legitimize the West’s imperialist foreign policies in the minds of the masses.

Greece — Syriza – Subservience to Neoliberalism – The Killing Plague that Knows No Mercy?

Greece’s debt today stands at 175 % of her economic output. The best – and only decent and socially as well as economically viable option – is exiting the Eurozone by her own decision.

Greece has various options/

Tsipras-Varoufakis must know them. Perhaps they keep them hidden away until “the last ditch” moment. To begin with, they could have imposed and still can impose strict capital transfer controls, to avoid the outflow of precious capital from Greek oligarchs, capital that eventually is missing for rebuilding Greece’s economy and would need to be replaced by new debt. Although, this is basically against EU’s rule of free transfer of capital, Greece as a sovereign country, can roll back its EU vassal status, take back its sovereignty and do what every reasonable central bank would do in Greece’s situation – impose capital transfer restrictions. After all, the Euro is also – and still is – Greece’s currency.

China pivots everywhere

The world’s leading economy is on a roll as it enters a new year in the Chinese zodiac. Welcome to the Year of the Sheep. Or Goat. Or Ram. Or, technically, the Green Wooden Sheep (or Goat).

The hyper-connected average Chinese – juggling among his five smart devices (smartphones, tablets, e-readers) – is bravely advancing a real commercial revolution. In China (and the rest of Asia) online transactions are now worth twice the combined value of transactions in the US and Europe.

CANADIAN PUBLISHER FACES JAIL FOR POLITICAL WRITINGS! PLEASE DONATE FOR HIS LEGAL DEFENSE!

Hello. My name is Arthur Topham and I am the owner, publisher and editor of the online alternative News site RadicalPress.com which has been operating in Canada for the past sixteen years. Over the last eight years I have been involved in legal battles with the Canadian government over alleged offences that purportedly violate Canada's "Hate Propaganda" laws. After eight years of endless legal persecution where I've been unable to work and make a living and also now being a senior citizen on a very small fixed pension the expense of hiring legal counsel is beyond my abilities without additional support from others who believe strongly in the fundamental right to freedom of speech, both off and on the net.

Barb Weir interviews moderate Syrian rebels

You must be joking. Since when are Syrian rebels from Syria? They come from Afar, Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Australia, Azabaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Benin, Bosnia, Britain, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Canada, Central African Republic, Chad, Chechnya, Denmark, Djibouti, Egypt, France…

…but Syria? Please, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a Syrian Syrian rebel. And there weren’t that many to start with.

Well, ISIL, ISIS, the Islamic state – whatever you want to call it – they’re paying even better and getting their money from the same places as us

The Assassination of Greece

The strangulation of Syriza is part and parcel of the decade long process of the EU’s assassination of Greece.

A savage response to a heroic attempt by an entire people, hurled into destitution, condemned to be ruled by kleptocratic conservatives and social democrats.

Empires do not surrender their colonies through reasonable arguments or by the bankruptcy of their regressive “reforms”.

If in fact, EU dogmatism and intransigence forecloses even the most favorable deals, Tsipras and Syriza, (against their desires) may be forced to exit the Euro Empire and face the challenge of carving out a new truly radical policy and economy as a free and independent country.

At War With Those “Who Have Perverted Islam”

The latest ISIL political ally to surface is Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, and an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2008.

During a speech at this week’s White House conference on countering violent extremism,President Obama described the enemy that calls itself ISIL:

“We are not at war with Islam; we are at war with people who have perverted Islam.”

That statement is sensible and it is clear. It represents the President’s careful separation of ISIL (initially self-designated as the Islamic State in the Levant) from the world’s Muslim population.

ISIL is not remotely representative of Islam. It steals its language the way extremists out of Jewish and Christian backgrounds pervert those religious communities.

How, to contain and defeat perverted and violent Islamic fundamentalism

American foreign policy and authoritarian Muslim regimes, cause/provoke Muslim hurt, humiliation, anger and the despair of no hope.

If perverted and violent Islamic fundamentalism (PVIF) in all of its manifestations is to be contained and defeated there’s one thing above all others that must happen – Western leaders, starting with President Obama, must open their minds to the fact that consequences have causes and then address the causes.

There are two main and related causes of PVIF (Perverted and violent Islamic fundamentalism):

(1) American-led Western foreign policy for the Arab and wider Muslim world including its double standard as demonstrated by refusal to call and hold Israel to account for its defiance of international law and rejection of the Palestinian claim for justice.

(2) The corruption, authoritarianism and repression of most if not all Arab and other Muslim regimes. In most cases they are regimes supported/endorsed by American-led Western foreign policy.

Ralph Nader: Stephen Harper is selling the politics of fear

A former candidate for the U.S. presidency has come down hard on the Canadian government's new anti-terrorism bill, calling it a crass effort to "sell the politics of fear."

Ralph Nader says Prime Minister Stephen Harper is exaggerating the threat of Islamic terrorism and his paranoia has now exceeded "Washington's chief attack dog, former vice-president Dick Cheney" — and he has written a letter to Harper to express his concerns.

HSBC Documents Show Bank Helped Clients Hide Billions From Tax Man

British bank HSBC helped hundreds of Canadians hide Swiss accounts from authorities to avoid paying millions of dollars in taxes, CBC News has learned.

That’s one of the takeaways gleaned from a massive collection of documents collected by Hervé Falciani, a former employee of the bank, who blew the whistle on his former employer and handed over reams of data to tax authorities.

Toronto Star promoting the extreme right in Ukraine

The three conglomerates that dominate print media in Canada -- Torstar, which publishes the Toronto Star, the country’s largest daily newspaper; Woodbridge, which publishes The Globe and Mail, the largest national daily; and Postmedia, which controls the daily newspapers of most cities in English Canada -- speak on Ukraine as though they all attended the same indoctrination sessions. Viewed through their prism, Ukraine is topsy-turvy and bears little resemblance to reality. Human rights, moral standards and the concerns of the people of the east of the country are given no standing, no voice and no sympathy.

Among the three, the Star has distinguished itself in that three of its writers have used their column and article space to vaunt the fundraising projects of Ukraine's extreme-right parties and militias and the Ukraine army. These are the forces which have been shelling towns and cities in eastern Ukraine and otherwise committing countless war crimes for the better part of the past year.

Putin Should Just Take East Ukraine

Such a decisive move by Russia would definitely put an end to the Western-backed war of aggression on the pro-Russian people of east Ukraine.

Moscow has so far shown more than enough forbearance towards Washington and its puppet regime in Kiev. And yet this week, Washington’s allies in the European Union have seen it fit to impose fresh sanctions on Russia. Putin’s diplomatic efforts to end the conflict on a mutual basis between the Kiev regime and the separatist ethnic Russian people have been twisted and upended at every turn by Washington.

Alberta tar sands pollution suspected in rare cancer cases

In 2006, Canadian doctor John O’Connor made a startling realization. Specialists had diagnosed three of his patients in the northern Alberta village of Fort Chipewyan with cholangiocarcinoma — a deadly cancer of the bile duct. The same cancer had killed his own father years earlier in Ireland.

Only about one in 100,000 Canadians contracts this type of cancer, so the likelihood of three cases in a town of about 950 was minuscule. O’Connor suspected pollution from Alberta’s tar sands, 100 miles upstream from Fort Chipewyan on the Athabasca River. Since then, the provincial government, while confirming an additional case of bile duct cancer and high rates of lung and cervical cancer, has yet to investigate further.

If You Care About The Environment In Canada, You May Be Targeted As An 'Anti-Petroleum Extremist'

As the Globe and Mail article makes clear, environmentalists are now being considered as part of an "anti-petroleum" movement. That's not just some irrelevant rebranding: it means that new legislation supposedly targeting "terrorism" can be applied.

9 weirdest things about this RCMP intelligence report on the "anti-petroleum movement"

First reported in La Presse, and again Monday in the Globe and Mail, the RCMP report dated January 2014 warns of "a growing, highly organized and well-financed anti-Canada petroleum movement that consists of peaceful activists, militants and violent extremists who are opposed to society's reliance on fossil fuels."

The report surfaces amidst fresh debate in Parliament over the Tories new anti-terror legislation and its potential use against groups involved in peaceful protest and legitimate dissent. The Harper government already has a proven track record for gathering intelligence on opponents of the oil sands.

Kiev says troops withdrawn from Debaltsevo, rebels claim military ‘surrender en masse’

Kiev troops surrounded in the city of Debalstevo have started to surrender en masse, Ukrainian rebels have said. President Poroshenko announced a complete withdrawal from the contested city.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko confirmed in a video statement that he has given an order to withdraw troops from Debaltsevo on Wednesdsay.

“We stated and proved that Debaltsevo was under our control and that there was no encirclement. Our units withdrew according to plan in an organized manner. They took military hardware with them – tanks, APCs, artillery pieces, tow-tracks, cars,” the president said.

He added that some 80 percent of the troops have already left the city.

Obama Destroyed Libya

Bush committed this error in Iraq. Obama made it in Libya. And now he's doing it again in Syria.What he did to Libya is as bad as what Bush did to Iraq and Afghanistan. He doesn’t deserve a historical pass.

When Obama took office in 2009, Libya was under the clutches of longtime dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. But things were looking up.

Bush and Gaddafi had cut a deal to lift Western trade sanctions in exchange for Libya acknowledging and paying restitution for its role in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. In a rare triumph for Bush, Libya also agreed to give up its nuclear weapons research program. Libyan and Western analysts anticipated that Gaddafi’s dictatorship would be forced to accept liberal reforms, perhaps even free elections and rival political parties, in order to attract Western investment.

American current bi-party system is bankrupt

It was Thucydides who warned us about slick tongued orators when he criticized the weakness and dangers of Democracy!

Obama and his administration have done, or achieved, none of the things which they claim to have done in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Palestine or at home in the U.S.

Many of the problems may have been inherited from the policies and tactics of the bent, crooked, broken and hijacked eight-year Administration of George Bush, but nothing has really changed. In fact, his pursuit of these very same methods and tactics as “resolutions” to these problems seems to have simply added more fuel to these disastrous fires.

Canada must own up to its complicity in torture

Shortly after the Senate’s torture report surfaced, the Canadian government quickly denied any complicity.

“It has nothing whatsoever to do with the Government of Canada,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in Parliament.

“Canada doesn’t torture anyone. Period! Period!” Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said, refusing to answer whether Canada uses torture-tainted information.

There’s a reason why he ignored the question. The facts tell us that Canada is complicit in the torture of detainees and has been doing everything it can to cover its dirty hands.

Putin Wins a Second Match

Has Russia’s Vladimir Putin pulled Barack Obama’s chestnuts out of the fire for a second time?

Will the shaky cease-fire in Ukraine that began this weekend hold up and end a conflict that was threatening a nuclear war between the United States and Russia?

The answer to the first question is yes. Remember back in 2013 when the Obama White House was threatening to attack Syria over allegations it was using poison gas?As it turned out, the UN found it was the US-backed Syrian rebels who were likely to have used chemical weapons rather than the Damascus regime.

Noble Peace Prize Winner Obama and his lady strategists almost got the US into a war in Syria that could have led to direct clashes with Russia, which was backing the Damascus government.Along came that unlikely man of peace, Russia’s Vlad Putin, who charted a diplomatic course out of the Syria mess for the bumbling White House which had talked itself into corner.

Hailed as a Model for Successful Intervention, Libya Proves to be the Exact Opposite

Once Gadaffi was brutally killed by a mob, advocates of intervention threw a giddy party for themselves, celebrating their own rightness and righteousness and declaring Libya a model for future western interventions. Upon Gadaffi’s fleeing, The New York Times, which editorially supported the war, published a front-page article declaring: “U.S. Tactics in Libya May be a Model for Other Efforts.”

Leading war advocates such as Anne-Marie Slaughter and Nick Kristof celebrated themselves as humanitarian visionaries and chided war opponents for being blinkered and overly cynical about the virtues of American force. British and French leaders descended upon Libya to strut around like some sort of conquering heroes, while American and Canadian officials held pompous war victory ceremonies. Hillary Clinton was downright sociopathic, gloating and cackling in an interview when told about Gadaffi’s death by mob: “We came, we saw, he died.”

Netanyahu Uses US Congress as Prop

By addressing the U.S. Congress for a third time, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu will again demonstrate his mastery of the American political process, using the backdrop of repeated standing ovations to keep Israelis from thinking too much about economic troubles.

The speech itself enables Netanyahu to show the U.S. Congress again eating out of his hand, reassuring his voters that he has everything under control as far as U.S. politics are concerned, notwithstanding any unpleasantness with the current U.S. president.

Chapel Hill Shooting and the ‘New Atheist’ Neocons

Beware the neocon ‘New Atheists.’ A terrible crime has happened in North Carolina – three young Muslim university students were shot dead ‘execution-style’ in their Chapel Hill apartment on Tuesday.

Police have arrested and charged 46-year-old Craig Stephen Hicks with the brutal murders, a man known for posting anti-religion comments online and whose Facebook page is riddled with pictures of and quotes from his ‘New Atheist’ heroes Richard Dawkins and Bill Maher.

The cops are conveniently saying that the Muslim students were not targeted because of their faith, but rather a “parking dispute.” How bizarre.

“It was execution style, a bullet in every head,” the father of the two deceased girls told the media, insisting that “this was not a dispute over a parking space, this was a hate crime.”

Why We Need the International Criminal Court

Since law is one of the foundations of civilization, shouldn't we make sure that no one stands above it.

The adage that no one should be above the law is of particular importance here. The problem is that there are innumerable cases where some individual or group holds sufficient political power to defy the rule of law.

This issue has not yet been fully confronted because, until very recently, no one has actually brought the crimes of individuals representing large and powerful states, or their allies, to the attention of the Court.

How do you arrest the indicted person if he is Henry Kissinger, George W. Bush or any number of Israeli military and civilian leaders, all of whom may well warrant the Court’s attention.

However, this is about to change due to the decision of the Palestinian National Authority to join the ICC. This has resulted in an ICC preliminary investigation of Israeli war crimes during the 2014 invasion of the Gaza Strip.

Good Morning America, Bibi is Coming to Town

“Do not seek the treasure. Its an ambush.”
The Israeli Prime Minister will be greeted by cheers and applause from those members of Congress who will be in attendance. Some members will not attend. How many will skip the event could depend on voters who demand their absence.

In attendance, assuming the Prime Minister actually goes through with what has become a highly controversial and increasingly unpopular speech.

Even strong pro-Israel outlets like Fox News, and Liberal Zionist media outlets like MSNBC, are urging Netanyahu to cancel his March 3 moment in the world media spotlight.

The decision by members of Congress to attend, or not to attend, Netanyahu’s speech March 3 is a test of loyalty for members, to their elected president or to the Sheldon Adelson-controlled prime minister of Israel.That is a political decision.It is also a personal moral decision.

The War on Venezuela’s Democracy – A Thwarted Coup Attempt

This is a typical case of neoliberal Washington paid thugs and mercenaries false-flagging ‘undesired’ governments into chaos, for ‘regime change’ – and then being taken over by the US, subjugating the population to US dictate and stealing the country’s resources.

Being subjected to the constant stream of lies by the six Zionist-Anglo-Saxon mega-media corporations controlling 90% of the western information – ‘news’ – system, it is easy to brainwash the western population into believing that the culprit is the Maduro government, exercising police repression.

Just Say ‘No’ to the AUMF! It’s a blank check for endless war

ISIL has yet to reach Baghdad – so why posit they’re on their way to Baltimore?

Like everything this administration does, President Obama’s proposed draft for the authorization of military force (AUMF) is a purely political document, starting with its conception.

he President is paving the way for his successor, who he hopes will be one Hillary Rodham Clinton, and whose foreign policy principles are a bit more openly hawkish than his own. Before she assumes office, he wants Congress’s signature on a blank check for whatever price she is willing to pay for continued US hegemony in the Middle East – while still paying lip service to the idea of a “limited” war.This is something the smarter breed of criminals do all the time: prepare an alibi in advance and spread the responsibility far and wide.

Russia’s Putin wins in Ukraine conflict

The 13 main points of the new agreement have carried forward the twelve-point Minsk accord of last September. But there is ‘additionality’ too insofar as timeline has been given for compliance by the warring sides and other protagonists.

The terms of the latest agreement confirms that Russia negotiated from a strong position — contrary to what the blistering western propaganda all along wanted us to believe.

The ‘additionality’ in regard of the future of the eastern regions to be decided by the end of the year doubtless is a major gain for Russia, as the induction of Ukraine into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO] is virtually ruled out if the constitutional reform goes through. This has been the core Russian demand.

Tracking the roots of Zionism and imperial russophobia

In order to understand the relationship between the Empire, Zionism and Western russophobia, we must go back to the late 19th century, and focus in particular on British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.

Which, of the Anglo-American Empire and the international Jewry, steers the other?

Ottawa keeping secret details of secret terror watch with Five Eyes allies

A veil of secrecy has dropped around a series of immigration information-sharing agreements between Canada and its “Five Eyes” allies.

In Washington this week, Francis Taylor, Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis, informed a congressional committee that “with the Five Country Conference — which includes Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom — we have concluded immigration information sharing agreements that reduce the likelihood that a person applying for asylum or a visa in any of the five countries who has an illicit past could hide that history.”

Testifying about the threat of foreign fighters and homegrown terror, Taylor said in addition to those agreements, Washington has built ties with other allies to improve its ability to detect terror threats or returning foreign fighters.

Sun News Network shuts down

Sun News Network went off the air at 5 a.m. ET Friday after failing to find a new owner.

Programming on the channel was replaced with a Sun TV logo.

Sun Media Corp. issued a statement saying it spent months unsuccessfully trying to find a buyer, but financial losses meant it could not continue to operate.

"This is an unfortunate outcome; shutting down Sun News was certainly not our goal," said Julie Tremblay, President and CEO of Media Group and Sun Media Corporation.

Obama, what about Israel’s nuclear arsenal?

A Washington-based think-tank, the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) recently painted a different, and more appealing, picture. A “special report” written by its director, Grant F. Smith, focused on a lawsuit that it has filed challenging “US ‘ambiguity’ towards Israel’s nuclear arsenal”.

It is disappointing, if not disturbing, that US President Barack Obama avoided airing any views about the decades-long Palestinian-Israeli conflict in an hour-long interview about US foreign policy issues with CNN’s much-respected anchorman Fareed Zakaria.

Ceasefire May Spare Poroshenko From Knives Out in Kiev

A ceasefire in the Ukraine war has been brokered after marathon talks in the Belarus capital, Minsk, this week. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the breakthrough along with his German and French counterparts following 17 hours of intense negotiations that went on through the night.

But perhaps the biggest relief will be felt by Poroshenko. His attendance at Minsk was notable for appearing to have an added gear of zeal to clinch a deal. That zeal may be not so much out of humanitarian concerns for his countrymen, as out of personal reasons for his own political survival

RCMP unlawfully seized guns during Alberta floods: Report

RCMP officers acted outside of the law when they conducted warrantless searches and seizures of firearms during the southern Alberta floods of 2013, according to an independent report.

The seizures angered many residents of High River, just south of Calgary.

The report, issued by the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission on Thursday, found that RCMP members performed "warrantless searches and seizures of firearms from some of the evacuated homes."

Mounties have claimed they don't need warrants to seize firearms and that they only took guns that were unsecured or improperly stored and in plain view.

Weapons to Ukraine may end US empire

Germany, France and even American lapdog ally Britain have all voiced opposition to sending more military hardware to Ukraine, fearful that such a move would escalate the conflict and antagonize Russia into a wider war.

While hosting Merkel at the White House this week, Obama was at pains to emphasize unity between Washington and Europe over the Ukraine crisis and toward Russia. Obama felt obliged to shore up that waning unity, rather than talk about the weapons option that so many other American politicians are advocating.

Restore the Bank of Canada

The Bank of Canada, unlike the Federal Reserve in the U.S., is wholly owned by the people of Canada. It was nationalized in 1938 and was used very successfully to fund infrastructure, social programs, education, etc, for the benefit of all Canadians. It was used to bring us out of the depression, funded WWII, to build highways such as the McDonald-Cartier freeway, public transportation systems, subway lines, airports, the St. Lawrence Seaway, our universal healthcare system and our Canada Pension Plan.

Unfortunately, since Canada adopted economist Milton Friedman’s theory of monetarism in 1974 this has not been the case and one can track the progression of the dismantling of Canada since then.

This is a very significant story but you probably haven’t heard of it. Why? The mainstream media and government have blacked out the story for reasons that appear to stem from fear of how the public will react to realizing they’ve been systematically enslaved for decades.

“Rather than seeking to hold Israel to account for its war crimes during the recent military assault on Gaza and its intensified colonization of the occupied West Bank,” the Canadian government “is further deepening its collaboration with Israel’s occupation and launching a shameful, propagandistic attack on free speech in the process,” Rafeef Ziadah, a member of the Boycott National Commitee (BNC) secretariat, said in statement.

The Case to "Reinstate" the Bank of Canada

There is a very interesting legal case that is playing out in Canada at the moment. William Krehm, Anne Emmett, and Comer (The Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform: http://www.comer.org/) filed a lawsuit on December 12th, 2011, in Federal Court to try to force a restoration of the Bank of Canada to its mandated purposes. In essence, they want the Bank of Canada to provide interest-free loans to the federal, provincial, and municipal governments, as provided for in the Bank of Canada Act. This money would be used to finance public expenditures whenever there is a budgetary deficit. Apparently, the federal government used to borrow interest-free (to at least some extent) from the Bank of Canada up until 1974. At present, governments borrow all of the necessary money (apart from any bonds they may sell to the public) from private banks at the going rate of interest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This case is worth keeping in the public eye, especially since I am getting emails from Canadian readers that links to these stories are being blocked in Canada.

The wealth of the private central bankers rests on a simple mechanism of taking control of a nation's currency and then issuing all of that currency as a loan at interest. This mechanism guarantees immense wealth to the bankers and perpetual debt-slavery to the people. Canada's Central Bank was created with the requirement that loans to the national, provincial and municipal government be made interest-free, but starting in 1974 the Bank of Canada abandoned that principle, reaping huge profits from the Canadian taxpayer for loaning money that like all private central bank money is created out of thin air. This lawsuit seeks to return the Bank of Canada to the original rules, and possibly repay the illegally collected interest. Because the Bank of Canada clearly and openly violated the rules, the courts have so far found for the plaintiffs. The Private Central Bankers are in a panic, not only because of the potential loss of money, but because this case is calling attention to how these private central banks, and other people in other nations are starting to ask why their own banks are not operated the same way so as to reduce the taxpayer burden.

Here in the United States, the question every taxpayer should be asking right now is why, when the Constitution authorizes the Federal Government to create and issue a debt-free currency, why that government persists in borrowing created-out-of-thin-air money from a privately-owned central bank at interest, plunging the people into hopelessly unpayable debt. The inevitable answer is always the greed of the Private Central Bankers aided by the complicity of hopelessly corrupt politicians.

HISTORICAL COURT RULING IN CANADA AGAINST PRIVATE CENTRAL BANKING

Court Demands Bank Of Canada return to it's original mandate issuing it's currency Debt free Harper Government orders MEDIA BLACKOUT of this case

Feb 03 11:15

Banking on serious reform

Why do Canadians allow private banks to profit off our public debt when the Bank of Canada is legislated to provide low- or no-interest loans for human capital and infrastructure spending? The Bank of Canada has not issued such loans since 1974, after it funded Canada out of the Great Depression, the Second World War, the infrastructure boom, universal health care, universities and colleges, CBC and more. Monday, three judges upheld the previous ruling of justiciability. The next step is to determine the statutes of the Bank of Canada Act and if they have been subverted by conspiracy.

The monopoly of private banks' exclusive privilege of lending money to governments will, for the second time in our history, soon be put on trial. The first time it was debated in the House of Commons, it led to the creation of the Bank of Canada. It's time to restore the Bank of Canada and jail the banksters.

Expect a full airing of the truth, said TRC Chair

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission is promising a scathing – and sweeping - report on the federal government and Canadian society.

“Our work of truth telling and truth collecting was not easy. We had challenges throughout,” said TRC Chair Justice Murray Sinclair, at the Special Chiefs Assembly in December in Winnipeg. He said he expected this to be the last time he addressed the Assembly of First Nations since the TRC’s mandate ends July 1, 2015.

Sinclair singled out the federal government’s reticence in handing over documents that dealt with Indian residential schools as one of the TRC’s “significant challenges.” The result was three separate occasions in court, all of which ended with the TRC winning. Sinclair said four million documents, from a variety of sources, have been collected to date, and he expected that number to double.

Angry Man Threatens Students at University of Toronto Scarborough

He stole a poster that read WARNING: THIS UNIVERSITY PROFITS OFF ISRAELI APARTHEID AND OCCUPATION. All attempts to calm him down failed. After stealing the poster he drove off, recording the incident with his phone. Campus police filed a report and said to notify them if the man returns. After a couple of weeks we put up another sign. The man came back. He forced his way into the student union. We tried to calm him down and initiate dialogue. The man replied with, “I’ll rip your fucking throat out” and “I have twelve guys on standby ready”—implying that he or other people will be back. He shouted that he use to be a part of the “israeli” military and regularly killed “terrorists”.

When people say they have no politics, it means that their politics aligns with the status quo. None of us are unbiased, none removed from the question of power. We are social creatures who absorb the outlook and opinions of those with whom we associate, and unconciously echo them. Objectivity is impossible.

Christopher Phillips arrest: no hazardous materials found at Ottawa hotel

The RCMP issued an internal communication Tuesday about Christopher Phillips, who lives in the Halifax area, identifying him as an ex-military weapons specialist with possible mental-health issues and considered "anti-police," sources confirmed to CBC News.

A Canada-wide warrant had been issued for Phillips after a suspicious package containing hazardous chemicals was found in the garage of a home in Cole Harbour, N.S.

The RCMP communication said Phillips may have been in possession of two dangerous chemicals:

Osmium, a precious metal.
Osmium tetroxide, a highly poisonous and volatile chemical that can penetrate skin easily that should not be used without a fume hood.

Nova Scotia RCMP issued the warrant after receiving a call from Phillips's wife saying he was en route to Ottawa.

Genetically modified (GM) food is more strictly regulated in the European Union than it is in Canada or the United States. The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the United States-European Union Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will increase the risk of GM food entering Europe.

Harper won’t bet case of beer on World Juniors game because of ‘Russia’s aggression in Ukraine': PMO

Prime Minister Stephen Harper did not bet a case of beer on Monday’s World Juniors gold medal game — ignoring a long-standing tradition that has seen him place a friendly wager with the leader of the opposing nation in high-profile hockey tilts.

But continuing that tradition for Monday’s much-anticipated final between Canada and Russia would have forced him to engage with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Why Canada's Internet Keeps Getting More Expensive

A Canadian reddit poster claiming to be a Shaw employee—one of Canada’s premier telcos—with news about new internet rates created a stir online this week by posting what looked like advance details of upcoming rate plans.

The rate plans appeared to change the pricing schemes so that new customers would pay equal money for slower service. Existing customers, whose rates will be going up anyway, would be grandfathered on their old plans—with updated prices showing an obvious path for upsell to the new rate tiers.

How the CIA Launched the «Financial Pearl Harbor» Attacks on Russia and Venezuela

The net result of the CIA-inspired fracking operations, which the Saudis were warned not to pursue by petroleum engineers working for some foreign-based firms like Schlumberger, is that there will be an oil supply glut for the next 5 years. The glut will be followed by a reduction in Saudi oil production unless new oil fields are brought on line. There is now a major push by U.S. and Canadian oil companies to bring online the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the United States to offset the expected sharp rise in oil prices in four to five years. But with Canada suffering financially from the drop in oil revenues, the Keystone XL project is also on financially shaky ground.

Palestinians criticize Canada for boycotting meeting on Israeli settlements

The top Palestinian diplomat in Canada says the Harper government should not have boycotted a United Nations conference this week that harshly criticized Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Said Hamad says Canada should have joined other countries at a conference in Geneva examining the Fourth Geneva Convention, which governs the rules of war and military occupation.

Some 126 countries of the 196 international parties to the convention adopted a resolution Wednesday saying Israel’s construction of settlements does not conform to its international legal obligations as an occupying power.

Along with Israel and the U.S., Canada boycotted the conference, another example of unwavering Conservative support of Israel — a position that has exposed deep differences with the majority of the United Nations.

Anti-marijuana ad's dubious claim a scary hit with parents

The assertion about lowered IQ is derived in part from a 2012 Duke University study of 38 heavy users of cannabis, but has since been challenged, notably by a British study of 2,612 young people which could find no such link.

A spokesperson for Health Canada, Eric Morrissette, cited other research published in 2012, known as the Dunedin Study, as the basis for the ad's assertion about reduced IQ.

But the House of Commons health committee reported in October that there are doubts about the Dunedin Study's conclusion. A key witness — Zach Walsh, a psychology professor at the University of British Columbia — told the committee in May that "substantial concerns have been raised in various publications" about the IQ claim.

Another committee witness warned MPs against using "scare tactics" in ads, which must rather focus on "accurate information," says the report of the committee, which recommended the government launch a public-awareness campaign.

Like Canada’s Harper Government, Obama Administration Muzzling Its Scientists

In recent years, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has come under fire for disallowing scientists working for the Canadian government to speak directly to the press.

An article published in August by The New Republic said “Harper’s antagonism toward climate-change experts in his government may sound familiar to Americans,” pointing to similar deeds done by the George W. Bush Administration. That article also said that “Bush’s replacement,” President Barack Obama, “has reversed course” in this area.

Society for Professional Journalists, the largest trade association for professional journalists in the U.S., disagrees with this conclusion.

No, no, I don't mean the Torture Report. I'm talking about Canada.

Let the other sordid drama play itself out in America. We've now learned more about "rectal feeding" (read: medically unjustified anal rape) than we ever wanted to know, and that's just for starters. Did the authorities raid every prison for the criminally insane to swell CIA ranks? Far worse, we're watching a desperate attempt to frame this whole series of vile acts as a period in (recent) history now thankfully ended. Don't you go believing that fairytale, now.

Premier Jim Prentice warns of consequences of low oil in State of the Province Address

In a nearly 45 minute speech in front of 700 people, Premier Jim Prentice gave his first State of the Province Address Tuesday.

Prentice began his speech at the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce luncheon by acknowledging the fact oil has hit record lows lately, sitting around $63 a barrel Tuesday compared to just months ago when it was going for $100 a barrel.

“The economic viability, the sustainability, the strength of our energy industry in this province is not in question,” Prentice told the room.

“This is a price trough. This is a price trough, to be clear, of uncertain duration. Longer, I think, than many people realize,” he added.

All four of the detainees are Arab-Canadians who were detained post-9/11. The committee condemned Canada for refusing to apologize and give compensation to the individuals who were tortured in Syria, and recommended that the country do so immediately.

Stephen Harper’s “Northern Foundation”

Stephen Harper was a member of the ultra-right-wing Northern Foundation in 1989, Mr. Harrison documents that this was a group that had numerous Neo-Nazi skinheads as organizers, as well as a leadership that included a well-known white supremacist and anti-feminist crusader as a prominent leader that sought to take over the mass-media to enable the fulfillment of a right wing agenda. The Northern Foundation, with the support of corporate allies was able to get Mr. Harper elected in the first place by indeed, taking over the mass-media in Canada. This was done to shelter Mr. Harper from the kinds of critical journalism which had kept him out of power, in the first place. Corporate mass-media owners would seek to remake Mr. Harper and the Conservative Party from being ultra right, into a fabricated image of a non-threatening “moderately conservative” party.

John Baird says Canada won’t join U.S. in airstrikes in Syria

Canada has no plans to follow its neighbour the United States in expanding airstrikes against the Islamic State group into Syria, the country’s top diplomat said Saturday during a visit to the Middle East.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Foreign Minister John Baird said Canada has a responsibility to contribute to the U.S.-led bombing campaign in part because the Islamic State group has attracted Canadian fighters to its ranks. But he insisted that support would be confined to Iraq for now.

“At this time we’re focusing on our current mission . . . We’ll stick with Iraq,” he said at a security conference in the Gulf island kingdom of Bahrain.

5 Stories That Prove Police Are Just as Terrifying in Canada

. That police in Saskatoon would routinely take First Nation people picked up for being drunk and disorderly to the outskirts of town, often during the winter, and tell them to sober up on the walk home was common knowledge in the area. The act of doing that actually has a name. It's called a "Midnight Blue Tour" or "Starlight Tour", and that it was commonplace in Saskatoon was more like a legend at the time, but one based on the fact that, over the years, several First Nation people in Saskatoon turned up dead of hypothermia on the edge of town, for reasons that no one could ever really explain.

Gill Rosenberg, Canadian citizen, may have been captured by ISIS

"She's originally from White Rock, British Columbia," CBC's Briar Stewart reported from London today. "She went to the British Columbia Institute of Technology, where she studied aviation.

"In 2006 she immigrated to Israel, where she later worked as a pilot with the army search and rescue unit.

"In 2009 … she was extradited to the United States, where she served time in prison for her part of an international phone scam. Now, after serving her time — it was just more than three years — she then went back to the Middle East, and obviously this fall she travelled … to Iraq to train with Kurdish fighters."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the CBC is pushing the fact that she is a Canadian woman, to serve the war agenda! Yet this article says she became an Israeli citizen, has a criminal record, and wanted to fight with the Kurds. This reeks of another setup to push the war propaganda.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel billed $950K US after giving birth in U.S.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel gave birth nine weeks early while on holiday in Hawaii in November 2013. Her baby daughter had to be hospitalized.

"My water broke two days into our holiday," Huculak-Kimmel said. "I spent six weeks on bed rest and then baby Reece was delivered by emergency C-section on December 10th."

Reece had to stay in the hospital for just over two months. Huculak-Kimmel thought that her insurance would cover the almost $1 million US bill.

In the end, Blue Cross denied payment. In a letter to the family, a Blue Cross worker wrote, "We are unable to provide coverage for any medical expenses incurred for Ms. Huculak's baby" and "please note that Ms. Huculak's travel policy expired on Nov. 9, 2013."

The Alberta Energy Regulator says 122 waterfowl died on tailings ponds operated by Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., Syncrude and Suncor in the northern Alberta Oilsands.

CNRL has found 60 birds so far at the Horizon site. Syncrude had to euthanize 30 birds that landed on a pond at the Mildred Lake site.

Its Canadian branch has been implicated in a long line of vigilante violence and fear-mongering. The fact that such a piece of dreck can solicit in a respectable Jewish establishment should make us sick to our collective stomachs.

But it doesn’t. That’s because the North American Jewish community, like its Christian and atheist counterpart, is infected with the scourge of Islamophobia. I define Islamophobia in the same way I define anti-Semitism: the delegitimization of a faith and the propagation of stereotypes and prejudice against its adherents. And it is endemic in our community.

Canada red-faced after doctored space equipment image appears on govt websites

The Canadian government has had to urgently remove from its agencies’ websites a photo of Canadarm2, its contribution to space exploration, after it was discovered that the country’s name and its flag had been airbrushed on space equipment.

The original picture was taken during a spacewalk in 2005 and shows astronaut Stephen Robinson. However, there is no logo on the photo of the Canadarm2. Yet in the doctored version, the name Canada is written on the piece of equipment, with the maple leaf flag painted above the final A.

"The tactic of fairly ham-fisted airbrushing used here seems more reminiscent of North Korean propaganda posters than of Western democracies' typical PR efforts," Kenneth Cukier said, writing on a blog for the Economist, after he had come across the photo by chance.

The unrest is palpable. In First Nations across Canada, word is spreading of a historic court ruling recognizing Indigenous land rights. And the murmurs are turning to action: an eviction notice issued to a railway company in British Columbia; a park occupied in Vancouver; lawsuits launched against the Enbridge tar sands pipeline; a government deal reconsidered by Ontario Algonquins; and sovereignty declared by the Atikamekw in Quebec.

These First Nations have been emboldened by this summer’s Supreme Court of Canada William decision, which recognized the aboriginal title of the Tsilhqot’in nation to 1,750 sq km of their land in central British Columbia – not outright ownership, but the right to use and manage the land and to reap its economic benefits.

In February 2012, the scientific journal Nature published an editorial opinion piece, Frozen Out, calling on the Canadian government to reform policies that restrict media access to federal scientists. This followed numerous stories documenting delays and confusion in how different federal departments respond to requests for media interviews on scientific matters.

How has the Harper government reacted? A new report, Can Scientists Speak, finds that federal media policies remain far more restrictive than those in the United States, and gives low to failing grades to nearly all 16 departments that employ scientists.
