LIE-Berals think silencing critics is better for their election chances than creating honest and effective economic and social policy!!!!!!!!



Considering how many things LIE-BERALS are wrong about- it is impossible for them to alter their policy without first admitting THEY WERE WRONG!!!!!!



Here is an article illustrating the amount of double speak and apparent reverse bigotry prevalent at Ryerson University. With some comments of my onw in brackets):

Was Ryerson University pressured into cancelling Fatah speech?

By Liz Braun, Toronto Sun. First posted: Thursday, August 03, 2017 06:44 PM EDT | Updated: Thursday, August 03, 2017 07:53 PM EDT

The Canada-India Foundation had booked space at Ryerson University to hear a speech from author, columnist and activist Tarek Fatah, but Ryerson has since pulled the plug on the event. (CRAIG ROBERTSON/TORONTO SUN)

Curiouser and curiouser: That seems to be the state of affairs on some Canadian campuses over issues of free speech. Executives with the Canada-India Foundation were dismayed to have had an event cancelled by Ryerson University this week, with no explanation given.

The CIF Speaker Series had booked space at Ryerson to hear a speech from Tarek Fatah, the author and columnist controversial for his statements against Islamist extremism. Fatah, who writes for the Toronto Sun, is an award-winning author and activist who founded the Muslim Canadian Congress after the events of 9/11 — both to fight Islamism and to alleviate Islamophobia. He is the host of the Zee News TV talk show Fatah Ka Fatwa’ and is a sought-after speaker in Canada and India.

He is a champion of free speech. He is also a frequent recipient of death threats. On Aug. 10 his talk, which will be held at a location to be announced, will address “Ghazwa-e-Hind vs. the Ethos of Hindustan.”

Fatah speculates that Ryerson cancelled the CIF event because of pressure from various groups who would protest his speech, such as AntiFa Toronto or the school’s Muslim Students’ Association.

Ryerson’s cancellation was last-minute; a permit to use Ryerson University Campus Premises and Facilities was revoked with no explanation.

When Vipul Jani, executive director of the CIF, asked why the permit was cancelled, he received a response from Voula Cocolakis, executive director of Ryerson University’s Business Services, as follows:

“We certainly understand your frustration, but as per our Rules and Regulations for Permit to Use Ryerson University Campus Premises and Facilities, Ryerson may revoke or cancel the Permit at any time with or without cause.”

(As a facility dedicated to educational pursuits set legally to Cdn standards- I say Ryerson has some obligation to be open and transparent in its dealings with the public and to make its facilities available within reason to public use! Ryerson has not just dropped the ball here- they have punctured it and thrown it away !)

Cocolakis did not respond to an e-mail from the Toronto Sun; another e-mail sent to Ryerson president Mohamed Lachemi was replied to by Johanna VanderMaas, Manger of Public Affairs, as follows:

“Thank you for your email; I am happy to respond on behalf of the university.

Unfortunately, Ryerson was unable to accommodate the Canada-India Foundation’s room booking request for August 10; we have expressed our apologies to Mr. Jani and CIF. The university is not aware of any concerns or plans to disrupt Mr. Fatah’s keynote address.”

Asked for the actual reason for cancellation, VanderMaas repeated the above, noting it was the university’s official comment. One could be forgiven for thinking that Ryerson is ducking the question.

Or that the school is currently plagued by bizarre political goings-on — consider Toronto Sun columnist Sue-Ann Levy’s recent expose of the anti-Semitism a student faced in her dealings with Ryerson School of Social Work field coordinator Heather Bain — who is now on leave.

(It seems to be an open secret that radical forces are- as U of T. Professor Jourdan Peterson has suggested, have taken over some areas of study in our institutions and are pushing views and values not compatible with general public thinking.)

Freedom of speech issues are taking a drubbing on many North American campuses, with scheduled speakers getting cancelled more frequently, often due to threats of violence from groups who present themselves as occupying the high moral ground.

(Sadly- some of these radical groups such as Black Lives matter and OCAP. BLM is pushing a radical view that only white people can be bigots. And Both BLM and OCAP-The Ontari-owe Coalition Against Poverty are pushing views that ought to be scorned and Not rewarded with govt grants! OCAP- which presents a political view that is slightly left of Joseph Stalin often gets grants from Cdn auto workers union and other such labour groups. One has to think OCAP is being offered a sort of `conscience` money by the unions that are price gouging us so often with LIE-beral aid! In any case there are too many radicals and too few logical thinkers at our colleges and universities! It is becoming a poisoned and toxic workplace.)

Okay then - here is an article reminding us of the quite sleazy methods that LIE-berals are using to avoid being accused of massive conflict of interest violations- and the screen is dangerously and scandalously THIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And LIE-berals are getting help from their pals of the Cdn news media who have chosen NOT to talk about the infamous "Morneau Screen"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Consider: Here is an article illustrating LIE-beral style morality and levels of honesty-and it ain’t pretty. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Morneau conflict-of-interest screen used by at least 3 other Liberal ministers

Canadian Press. Published: October 31, 2017. Updated: October 31, 2017 11:54 AM EDT. Filed Under: Toronto SUN News Canada

Trudeau questioned over ministers with conflict-of-interest... 2:13
OTTAWA — At least three other members of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s cabinet have personal financial arrangements similar to the setup that has landed Finance Minister Bill Morneau in hot water, despite the blessing of the federal ethics commissioner.

Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc, Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi are using so-called conflict-of-interest screens, a step short of the blind-trust gold standard for politicians seeking to avoid the sort of controversy Morneau now finds himself in.

(AS we have seen before there is one standard of behaviour for LIE-berals and a second- HIGHER STANDARD for everybody else! LIE-berals are so arrogant and so ego driven that they simply assume we will recognize their saintly good will and angelic attitudes! What a LIE-beral CROCK of fresh, ripe, steaming, straight from the back of the Bull, organic fertilizer! Its all just LIE-beral ENTITLEMENT! What ordinary Cdn could conveniently FORGET he owned a villa in the south of France as finance minister Morneau did? If a group of Conservatives had set up such deals there would be LIE-berals screaming for blood!)

Sohi says he has a screen in place to prevent him from participating in decisions that could benefit his wife’s holdings in a company that is also a partial owner of farmland in Alberta.

He says the screen is an effective tool that has already seen him removed from the approval process for an infrastructure project, proposed by the province, that would be in close proximity to the farmland.



In response to accusations that he’s personally profited from decisions he’s taken as finance minister, Morneau has promised to sell off $21 million worth of shares in his family’s company and place the rest his substantial assets in a blind trust.

Morneau, who says he was never in a conflict of interest amid questions about his work to spearhead pension-reform legislation, has promised to donate to charity any gains in the value of his Morneau Shepell shares since he was elected two years ago.

(Our prisons are FULL of people who claim they are innocent! It is the standard defense of people caught doing things they should not have done! Ands its not the frist time LIE-berals have been caught in immoral situations that are on the edge of criminal in the minds of many Cdns! One has only to think of former LIE-beral finance minister Paul Martin who moved his Canada Steamship Lines out of Canada to a more tax friendly location and did so WITHOUT bothering to pay the usual export duties- using loopholes he left in his own legislation!)

(Or we could speak of the Duffy senate “scandal” in which 3 Conservatives were spotted by other party members and told they were being careless with public money. So Conservative senators Wallin and Brazeau PAID BACK money that their colleagues felt had been spent unwisely. Conservative senator Mike Duffy defied the party and so Conservatives paid back the money FOR HIM and then sued him to get their money back! No harm and no foul for Cdn tax payers as Conservatives set a high standard of behaviour and enforced it too!)

(Too bad that Conservatives found out the hard way that senate spending rules are so sloppy that Duffy could do pretty much as he pleased with OUR money. The only option ofr Conservatives was to dump Duffy from their party. And the REAL KICKER in this? LIE-beral senator MacDonald Harb took and wasted MORE MONEY than Wallin. Brazeau and Duffy- COMBINED- and never faced any sort of censure! And LIE-berals certainly never paid anything back for him and never apologized either! One standard for LIE-berals and screw the rest!)

(Our we could discuss the LIE-beral adscam mess in which THREE BILLION DOLLARS of tax revenue disappeared from the Human Resources Ministry and when the theft was discovered, LIE-beral leader Paul Martin assured us he would find the money and if any had been taken inappropriately, then LIE-berals would pay it back- even if it was as much as one hundred thousand dollars! Such a LIE-beral thing to say!)

(Or we could look at events in the Ontari-owe Mike Harris era- when a Conservative cabinet minister was judged to have spent ten thousand dollars on meals and alcohol and was bounced from cabinet and made to pay the money back- while at the same time LIE-beral deputy prime minister Sheila Copps was accused of spending one hundred and eighty six thousand dollars in exactly the same improper way and basically told reporters to “fuddle duddle” and if they had a complaint they should discuss it with her boss- the prime minister. And since there is one standard for LIE-berals and another for everybody else- that is as far as it went- no LIE-beral shame and certainly no public accountability- and LIE-berals wonder why aspiring prime ministers Paul Martin, Stephan Dion and Mikey Ignatieff could not get elected?)

NDP calls Morneaus proposed charity donation guilt- and aint it grand that even NDPers recognize sleazy suspect behaviour when they see it? Ethics commissioner Mary Dawson has said she told Morneau a blind trust wouldn’t be necessary, since his shares were indirectly held through private companies and were therefore not considered a controlled asset under the Conflict of Interest Act.

(So a civil service Hog who owes her fine job- riding the govt gravy train- to LIE-berals has refused to condemn LIE-beral behaviour? Is that a surprise?)

If LIE-berals get their way, we will be driving the electrically powered and entirely Cdn Soviet version of an East German Trabant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



It is a tribute to how messed up Socialists are that the same people who built Porches and Mercedes in a free market- would turn around and produce a Trabant in a socialist market!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the Trabant standing beside a Porche is surely a DAMNING INDICTMENT of all things socialist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cohen lawyer admits he was anonymous CNN source for bombshell story on Trump Tower meeting

Quote:

Lanny Davis, the high-powered attorney of President Trump’s longtime “fixer”-turned-foe Michael Cohen, admitted Monday he was an anonymous source for a bombshell CNN story on the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting — after The Washington Post outed him as a source for its own story.
Davis told BuzzFeed News Monday night he regretted being the anonymous source as well as his subsequent denial. The CNN story, which cited multiple “sources,” claimed Cohen said President Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower sit-down.
“I made a mistake,” Davis told BuzzFeed.
CNN, which has stood by its reporting, did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.
Davis spent recent days walking back his bombshell assertions that his client could tell Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Trump had prior knowledge of the meeting with a Russian lawyer discussing potentially damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
Trump has denied knowledge all along, and fired back following CNN’s report last month.
“I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr. Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?). He even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary’s lawyer. Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice!” Trump tweeted on July 27.
The CNN report from July 27 headlined, “Cohen claims Trump knew in advance of 2016 Trump Tower meeting,” cited “sources with knowledge,” contradicting repeated denials by Trump and his surrogates, as Fox News previously reported. CNN’s report resulted in countless cable news segments and sent other news organizations scurrying to match.
Among them was The Washington Post. On Sunday, the newspaper published an interview in which Davis backpedaled.
Davis, attempting to clean up his comments in interviews last week after Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and bank fraud, told the Post he “should have been more clear” that he “could not independently confirm what happened.”
Davis said he regretted his “error.”
“Davis’s latest comments cast doubt on what Cohen may know, including about a June 2016 meeting in New York’s Trump Tower attended by Trump’s eldest son and a Russian lawyer,” the Post wrote on Sunday night.
Davis started walking back the allegations last week, when during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, he was asked whether there was evidence that Trump knew about the meeting before it happened.
“No, there’s not,” Davis said.
He told BuzzFeed on Monday night about his comments to Cooper: “I did not mean to be cute.”

John McCain was a jet fighter pilot shot down over Hanoi and taken prisoner in the infamous Hanoi Hilton prison!

His father was a govt big-wig and the Viets wanted their prominent prisoner to make some little broadcasts- essentially LYING about conditions in Viet prisons in exchange for his freedom!

McCain refused- telling his guards and torturers that he would ONLY go home with the rest of the Yankee prisoners!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course later on, John McCain rather blackened his reputation by getting neck deep in the old Savings and Loans Trust scandal!!!!!!!!!!

Basically Senator John McCain led a govt coalition that persuaded Congress NOT to act on and try to limit the growing Savings and Loan scandal for a year- during which time a WHOLE LOT of people lost their life savings!

'Soon' in this case is pretty much an open ended timeline and more towards the end than the beginning.

It may have escaped your notice if you have already tuned out, but the US news cycle is increasingly run on pure hysteria.
This is cheap replacement for solid, informative content. Also it is much easier to manipulate and bend to ulterior motives than good informative content, allowing it to be marketed as a "derivative" to interested parties -- i.e. billionaires, oligarchs, and politicians eager to distort the nation's political culture for their own advantage.

CNN Has been Caught at Creating Fake News & Everyone Else is Pointing the Finger at them – Investment Watch Blog
CNN reported that Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, was ready to tell Mueller that Trump knew about the meeting with Russias at Trump Tower in advance. Many other newspapers report the story using CNN as the source that this was the “bombshell” that would impeach Trump. that The problem is that Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, has repudiated that story. Davis has come out and expressly stated that Cohen has no information that Trump had prior knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting Every other news service has come out and apologized for the false report. Not the king of Faker News, CNN. CNN has come out and stated: “We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it.” This really shows how low CNN has become. There are now no longer regarded as a “reliable” news service and have fallen hard in the rates as FOX News has been number one now for 200 months straight .

Here is an older article just to remind us of how we got to this point!

AS for Trump being a "racist"- well we now know that is the fall back position of LIE-berals who have run out of Fake News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Most people are familiar with that old saying that “people get the government they deserve”. So why do civil service union Hogs want us to vote for a pack of loonie leftist lie-berals? Could it be because THEY are expecting massive gobs of gravy in exchange for their votes? It seems Hogs are DEMANDING that Lie-berals PAY civil service Hogs what they `THINK` they deserve……even if it bankrupts the country?
The first budget of John Tory is already toast-he is praying that our shaky economy will supply him with a near record 450 MILLION DOLLARS in land transfer taxes. Except our economy is slowing and people who are worried about their jobs DON’T make big purchases for things like houses. Workers are being laid off in increasing numbers, in part due to oil prices and in part due to the number of civil service Hogs who are in a strike position and are demanding that the government give them many MORE entitlements!
These union Hogs are keeping their wallets CLOSED while they try to strangle the government with debts and entitlements….thus hurting the economy further. John Tory has also been rebuffed by the Wynne-bag Lie-berals in his search for an extra 85 million in extra provincial funding…..in spite of the fact that Toronto ALREADY gets ten dollars per citizen for every one dollar that is given to citizens in other municipalities!
Toronto is a financial black hole that has already screwed itself-Lie-berals are already guaranteed Toronto support and have no need to kiss Toronto asses any further-so NO MORE MONEY. Even worse, this first Tory budget does NOT include any extra cash for the unions who believe they are so entitled! John Tory is a budgetary failure! He is the creation of civil service Hogs who wanted a spineless yes man to rubber stamp their demands for gravy and that is just what Tory has done!
A year ago I suggested that Toronto city council would argue itself to a standstill and end up stalling out on building any new public transit-no subways and no light rail either…..looks like I was right- nothing new is being built and there is nothing even on the horizon that might get started!

Wynne-bag has so many money troubles that it seems unlikely that she will honour her promise to pay up any of the thirty billion dollars of transit money she promised. And here we are a couple of years later and the grand LIE-beral offers have ALL BEEN RESCINDED! Wynne-bag has recently been rebuffed by our federal govt as the fed have declined to mess up ther financial situation in order to bail out the utterly irresponsible Wynne-bag!
Our civil service Hogs have created Wynne-bag and Tory and Our idiot Boy Justin as well and now the chickens have come home to roost- “the middle class” is paying MORE for everything just like the rest of us! There is NO golden Hog future on the horizon- merely massive future tax hikes to pay for current insane debt!
But there IS one piece of LIE-beral policy that I DO like- that is the part about making the “rich” pay MORE! This means that when we hit the debt wall we WILL be picking the pockets of the Hogs who created the debt mess to begin with!

In the modern world, mainstream economic journalists have just two roles to perform – to convince the public that they have some clue about what is going on; and to maintain public confidence at all costs. So it was, for example, that even as Lehman Brothers was collapsing a decade ago, mainstream economics coverage was still telling investors that their money was safe and that a new age of prosperity was dawning.
Ten years on, little has changed. Despite the decimation of the retail sector on both sides of the Atlantic and the worst collapse in real wages since the 1890s, mainstream media continue to point to supposedly full-employment and artificially propped-up stock markets as evidence that all is well. The trouble is that for millions of households, things are far from well. In the course of the decade since the Great Financial Accident, foodbanks have mushroomed across every town and city in the country. Official employment figures are high, but only because of part-time and zero-hours jobs. As the Resolution Foundation recently reported:
“The Foundation cautions that while employment has provided a major living standards boost since the crisis, widespread insecurity has been a big setback with around 800,000 workers currently on zero hours contracts. It adds that Britain’s impressive jobs record contrasts with its dire performance on pay, with real average earnings still £13 a week lower than they were a decade ago.”
A key reason for this, in the UK at least, is that we have been creating the wrong kind of jobs. The employment growth areas in Britain are in low-paid, labour intensive sectors – social care, retail and hospitality. In the years prior to the Sex Discrimination Act, when official unemployment rates were last this low, these would have been regarded as “women’s work” in the sense that they were never expected to provide the main income for a household, but were regarded as an additional income to supplement the wage or salary of the main (usually male) breadwinner in the household. Indeed, even in the more enlightened 1990s and early 2000s, many of these jobs would have been seen as “student jobs” – allowing the first generation obliged to pay for its education to add a small additional income to their maintenance loans. The problem today is that millions of households are obliged to live entirely on the low wages paid by these supplemental jobs. The result, for a growing army of people, is that they have to take on more than one such job and/or claim in-work benefits in order to get by.
In other words, the fact of full-employment is only “good news” insofar as things could be a lot worse. As it is, the collapse in real earnings for the majority is conveniently hidden in media coverage by the use of average wage figures that are increasingly meaningless in a grossly unequal society. As Sean Farrell at the Guardian reported earlier this month:
