A Serpent's Tale - Dave's parable about what we are doing to our planet - when you look into the abyss, even if you have no idea what you are doing - be careful - maybe the abyss is looking back ...



In the 60s we were a few short steps away from the dream of democratic peace and prosperity our ancestors had fought for for centuries - and here we are as the first decade of the 21st century stumbles to an end on the edge of the abyss with nothing but grim in sight as chaos and turmoil threaten from all sides - what happened cover



Do you wonder what is happening to our society? This -

aquila cover



- and for the curious, if anyone cares, a few words on
From Hastings to Green Island
- the (very) short form story of Dave's own journey..


Really .... The (somewhat erratic) daily observations...

Aug 24 - "news" haha - '..we're now in week 4 of the election campaign...' - and we're still focused on trivia - 4 weeks in, and still not a word on the TPP and TTIP - lots of pointing out of the obvious, of course (today the big revelation is 'whoever wants to win has to do well in Ontario, with a third of the seats..' - well holy fuck batman we couldn't have figured THAT out without your penetrating analysis!! Thanks CBC!!!!)

- and on the "news" haha - ISIS has blown up some historical site - some details, not a word about ISIS arising from the devastation of US-NATO bombing of Iraq and Libya and lots of other places, so, really, that's kind of Canada being responsible, to some extent, no????? - haha. not on the CBC. Just damned old ISIS, who 'has a history of destroying things it considers non-Muslim'. etc

- and on the Island Morning show, Mitch talks to some lady about kids doing poorly in math, and after some kind of 'research' finds that these kids often have parents not too bright in math either - and somehow reaches the conclusion that 'math anxiety' could be genetic. Talk about dumbed down. Way to go CBC, dragging Cdns back to the dark ages (of course, I suppose these are some of the Cdns engaged in the 'Siege on Science' we learned about a few months ago on Ideas...)

Aug 23 - CBC "news" (Harper's hair disappears from column, then reappears!!!!! NEWS!!!!!!

and - 'news' fucfucfuc - first a 'We're such good children look at us follow the rules mommy!!' story - somebody at Peggy's Cove starting some 'twitter story' calling people who don't 'obey the rules!!!' 'morons', and everybody agrees - if you're too stupid do obey rules designed for your own safety, well you are a moron, right???? (who makes the rules? Oh, we're not going there - momma makes the rules of course and GOOD children don't ask questions, they do what momma says. People do NOT decide for themselves what their safety limits are - momma does! Yayyy momma!!!

>> and another 'must know Cdns!!!!!' story - some football game or something from Montreal, where 'fans' were greeting some player - gotta know this, Cdns, nothing else of any fucking interest at all going on in the world!!!!

- Sunday Edition - narrative creation - the Americans really wanted to create a democracy in Iraq, that would spread to the whole area!!!! Wonderful 'shining city on the hill dream!!!' (my sarcasm) - but it was the damned Iranians supporting chaos in Iraq that shattered that dream! Damn ol Iranians!! Nice, well-meaning, but simple minded and innocent Americans (aka greatest military force in history) defeated by evil fucking bastards!!! - that's it, children, that's 'history!!!' (the host thinks her story is quite hilarious in places - no need to be serious here folks, that would show we believe the shit we're peddling ... )

Aug 22 - let it just be on the fucking record for once - the Globe and Mail is fucking terrified of letting me have any kind of voice at all. In the 'comments' after this article - no room for big ideas, I made one small comment, suggesting Mr Simpson look in a mirror, since it is the Cdn media which has been pushing trivia and gossip for years and completely avoiding serious things such as the current TPP, and made a small reply to a later comment by one Doug Broome, saying I wanted to nominate his comment as 'best of the year' or something - both were accepted, both were in no possible fucking way contravening any 'community standards', and now an hour later both are gone. In a way it's very angering, in another way it's very encouraging - obviously those who oversee the Cdn media are very concerned about letting me speak. And you fucking ought to be you bastards I AM fucking after you, and I will get you. (no it's not a threat it's a fucking promise, I am not going to rest until ALL of you fuckers who have almost completely destroyed the dream of a great Canada are in a max security jail cell for the rest of your fucking lives)

>> CBC - again creating the narrative - on the House - some sounds from outside the Duffy trial, or somewhere, and then Hall tells us - 'the Duffy trial dominates the election' - not really, Chris - the Duffy trial dominates the media - it's interesting they tackle people who are trying to find sanity directly, they have a clip of the 'confrontation' between some harper supporter telling a reporter the Duffy trial was meaningless, and the relentless CBC reporter insisting on asking questions about the trial - message - the CBC says the trial is the BIG THING!@!!!!! - and you peasants have no fucking say in anything. - and then of course we have a few guests telling us why it is important, and nobody explaining why it is trivial (sorry, actually one guy did say it was not the biggest issue in Canada, and Hall skips right on to the next question without even acknowledging that). What would you expect from corporate Canada propaganda central?? Truth???? Context??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! (ie LOL)

Aug 21 - CBC 'news' from Ottawa - they're all amazed that a Japanese chess players playing - 'not 1! not 2! not 3! But FIFTY!!!!!! opponents at once in Chicago!!!!!! And even more amazing - he's only 27!!!!' - obviously completely illiterate in terms of chess, a kind of 'intelligent adult' game, knowledge of which is thus certainly not encouraged on the CBC - but obviously, the grandmasters have been playing large numbers of opponents for the last 100 years or more, and the chess grandmaster is usually at his peak in his 20s. Fucking CBC. Pathetic.

>> all over the gossip also - some 'cheating' site got hacked or something, and the sexually immature Cdns are all a gossip over the names of 'cheating spouses' being released. Fuck, the rulers must be feeling very secure these days - the peasants are totally oblivious to important stuff, overwhelmed with the childish gossip they love so much.

fuck Harper sigh - $543 fine - it's a democracy, really. Really!!! Really!!!???? (and more proof of the immense hypocrisy of the media pretending nobody says 'the f-bomb!!!' etc.

Aug 20 - the Current - oh, the lies - the host introduces her panelists as people who 'seek the truth' - that's why she's on the radio, we can't see her nose growing - egregious lie (she did have the shame to giggle a bit as she said it) - but the whole half hour dedicated to making sure you peasants understand clearly what happened with Wright, and it IS important, you fucking peasants!!! (after listening a bit - this really could stand some lengthy deconstruction, looking at the quite openly childish behaviors all of these people are showing - you'd think they were learning good stuff if this was a bunch of high school kids - but CBC?????? - what can you say, but fuckfuckfuck - beyond pathetic. But I believe I've noted that before. ) (the quality of 'analysis' - if people already hate Harper, this will give them an excuse to not vote for Harper. ???? really. he said that. if you hated Harper before, I guess you might vote for him anyway - but NOW, by golly, you can hate him and NOT vote for him!!! - amazing logic - the CBC in action.

Aug 19 - some lady tells us about Wright 'paying the check' - fuck. kids and gossip and only marginally literate. the new CBC. NOT to be proud of.

- apparently the CBC thinks its some kind of big story to find out who knew Wright was paying Duffy the 90 grand. ????? Good ol CBC - always looking for trivia to distract the childlike Cdn mind. OH NO Breaking News!!!!NOVAK KNEW!!!!!! OMG THE WORLD WILL END NOVAK KNEW NOVAK KNEW !!!!!!!!!!!

- as with the Current - some candidate told people he comes from a holocaust-survivor family - and the CBC by god wants to know if this is 'legitimate' to tell people. Wow. And still not a fucking WORD about two major trade treaties under negotiation that will, if signed, have major ramifications for the country. And signed they will be, as soon as whoever is going to get elected gets elected - without a single fucking Cdn having any fucking idea what is going on (Cdns who rely on the CBC, at any rate ...).

>> and we have a book for gods sake about some actress's opinion on healthy eating. And the CBC thinks this worth a half hour. Fuck the TPP - we have celebrity gossip!!!!!!!

>> and we have time for a story about some damned luddites in BC not getting vaccinated up to CBC standards - with comment from some shocked mother who just can't understand why any mother would put their poor babies at risk like this. And some gobbledygook about 'anything short of herd immunity is unacceptable!!' - you hear that, people? The whole world (CBC world) will be ON YOUR FUCKING CASE!!! until you join the herd, and do as the herd wishes. (and that is Democracy, my friend, doing as the majority fucking tells you to do. Even, or maybe especially, when the herd is running off the cliff, you do NOT try to talk sense to anyone - just grit it and jump. THAT'S FREEDOM!!!!!

- man cannot board flight because female security won't frisk him - a highly, highly sexually dysfunctional, fucked-up society. Not to mention highly stupid. Dumbed down. Very childish.

>> VE VILL CONTROLL EVVVVVVVRYFUCKINGTHING!!!!! - fuck, I don't believe this. - obviously some total fucking control freak who believes they are god of some kind - listen up - '..On the upside, B.C. has recently taken the step of increasing speed limits to better fit with modern conditions. Higher speed limits reduce the tedium and cause drivers to pay attention and drive better..' - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - it's just a fact that higher speeds equal more accidents - but THIS guy obviously likes driving fast, so that's ok kids!!!!!! But get your hands in the right position!!!!! - I don't care what anyone things - the problem is when they start thinking they're fucking god and have some right to tell others what to do. Getting very, very widespread these days. They must be fought to the end.

Popes' museum - ???? not, actually - the museum does not belong to the popes, so the s-apos ending is not correct. Not hard to understand, but there is a great deal of bad punctuation floating around in our lands today - sign of dumbing down, no doubt about it.

Aug 16 - fuck, even on Sunday, push the current Big Shew!!!!! - so (our expert political correspondent!!) - Mike Duffy's trial will be on again tomorrow, Nigel Wright will be on the stand again - how does this affect the election campaign?? - and etc - utter fucking meaningless crap, day after day after fucking day. Gossip and pretend drama and utter meaningless crap - the CBC of 2015.

>> and the ongoing rewriting of history - lots of bombs in Iraq and elsewhere - all the blame laid on the Iraqis, not a fucking whisper of the Cdn-media backed bombing of Saddam way back when, and everyone else - any honest media would be analysing this kind of thing, rather than the completely trivial Duffy trial - do you suppose it was a good idea to get rid of Saddam, now, in hindsight? Was Iraq a better place with him than now??? And what about all the others we have bombed? Libya is a total fucking mess now, but, actually, the best country in Africa before we bombed him - and etc.

Aug 15 - the House - pushing the main gossip of the day, the Duffy trial - this is NOT some major issue in Canada, but they try to make it one - it's been a couple of weeks now, and I haven't heard a single word in the media about the big pseudo-trade 'treaties', the TPP and TTIP, other than the brief 'This is fucking WONDERFUL!!!' bit by Charest last week) (more here in 5 minutes of real interest than anything I've heard on the CBC in the last two weeks - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5b-99oxCEs - Assange talking briefly about why we need to be concerned about the TPP - the House wants to know if you are concerned about the economy, but oddly enough not this...) - also today aside from the gossipers dissecting the minute details of the Duffy trial, they tell us how important 'the economy!!!' is, and 'terrorism!!' - all spectacle and mush, while not talking about anything important.

Aug 14 - wow, TWO crying people this morning!! - some guy blubbering about having to run away from his campground, a lady in Indonesia crying about her husband being released from jail - great stuff!!!

- and they've got some new directive from HQ - there's a lot of 'thank you SO much!' the last few days from the 'news(haha) reader' to some 'correspondent - 'thanks' is fine, but not gushing. fuck, you people.

- the Current - 'society may not know what to do with single aging women..' ??? really, 'current'??

Aug 13 - "news" - oh, listen to the outright fucking lies from the CBC!!!! - the Assange charges are about to be dropped - ".. Swedish authorities have been trying to talk to Assange for years but he's been hiding out in the Ecuador embassy..." (they don't use 'hiding out', but same meaning) - but of course, Assange has repeatedly tried to talk to the Swedes, has invited them to come and see him, but they refuse to come to England to talk to him!!! - baaaaaaaddddddd CBC!!!!!! stupid CBC, easily provable lies!!! (they could be just stupid, of course, and of course a lot of them are, having graduated from the obvious jokes they're calling 'journalism school' these days - but THAT stupid?????? (in the situation between the US gov and Assange, of course, with the US gov wanting to lock him the fuck up forever, there is no question at all which 'side' the CBC is on, and thus no confusion about why they are lying here - can't say anything that makes our masters look bad, can we? Making those who dare question our Master look bad - well, haha, do bears shit in the woods??)

- Ottawa Morning - there are rats in Ottawa!!!!! - and the voice of the "reporter" (not haha) is just full of shock and horror as she 'reports'.

- more on the Duffy trial of course - I wonder if they're setting up some big fall for someone here - it seems everyone allowed to talk on the CBC is missing the biggest and most obvious point - if Duffy was a senator from PEI, he, by law, **had** to have a residence there - meaning **everyone** involved with appointing him had to 'sign off' on the **fact** that he was a PEI resident, and thus, by direct implication, was eligible to claim expenses???? - it sounds like his lawyer is pretty smart, and may bring this up - but even if, why has it not been getting a lot more speculation? It seems of central importance here ...

Aug 12 - national 'news' - some lady in BC not happy about the way her doctor talked to her. Listen up children - gossip!!!! - the REAL 'national news' on the CBC!!!!

- and we get an update on the narrative of the Duffy trial - just to be sure we're all on the same page here. This is IMPORTANT folks!!! - unlike boring old shit like the TTP or something - we normal folks don't need any talk about what is going on with this stuff that, if signed, is trying to control our country for decades to come, nononoNO folks!!!! - get with interesting GOSSIP!!! - that what we live for, right?? - oh, here comes the Sports News!!! - can't miss that!

Aug 9 - Unwanted kiss OMG!!!!! - I don't know what kind of world these people are trying to build, but it's going to be a pretty dead one (note radfems - an 'unwanted kiss' like this is NOT NOT NOT!!!!!!!! the equivalent of violent sexual assault proving ALL MEN ARE FUCKING RAPISTS AND THIS IS A RAPE SOCIETY!!!! - take a fucking valium) For the lady - geezus lady, in the real world outside your feminist fantasyland studio, people actually touch each other quite a bit - if you can't stand being touched or heckled - find another job.

fuck. the very fact they make this a 'national headline story' says a great deal about what is wrong with the CBC these days. (no story about the TPP, for example - obviously 'unwanted peck on cheek of CBC female reporter OMFG!!!!' rates higher on their 'priority' list)

- maritime 'news' - some place was robbed by 'two masked men wearing masks..' - I don't think they're really trying to do comedy (the 'real' CBC 'comedy' is far less amusing than this sort of shit you get most days..)

>> '...PEI parks are recommending not swimming possibly due to rip currents..' - fuck, do they even study English? - I suppose in the new CBC, it's fine to make up any old shit as you go. Obviously - 'due to possible rip currents'. fuck.

Aug 8 - no, still kicking, just get a bit wrapped up in day job stuff the last few weeks, and making a big push to get the book done, as it is desperately needed - it may well be that noone will read it, but that's not my job, my job is to write it and put it out there, just in case anyone is ready to get serious about fighting Sauron. The Deeper Truth - Why we're losing, and how to start winning. Coming soon.

- 'news' talking about the Wynne-Harper 'fight', and she continually talks about 'Harper' and 'Wynne' - fuck, it's just disgusting to listen to this kind of disrespect of our elected leaders, no matter how much you disagree with them, as I obviously do. (So what's the deal? Who knows, maybe just stupid kids at play showing (once again) they have absolutely no idea of how a real professional journalists behaves, or maybe it's the rightwing influence - all government is bad, they're all just trying to steal from us and making stupid policies to placate the damned socialists, etc. I don't know, really - once again, you think, they're pretty much at the bottom, but they always find ways to go lower. If we ever win here, the whole place is going to have to be gutted and thoroughly fumigated before we start to phoenix it. We do need the CBC, but not the cancerous Saruman-character it has become now.)

- the House - oh, look, we ARE going to talk about the TPP, Dave, and even the TTIP!!!! What's the 'nasty corporate media propaganda here?!?!? eh??' - hahaha well - listen to it - it's just a complete whitewash, a pro-corporate trader telling us all how wonderful this is, how dangerous it would be to not sign it. Not a WORD from anyone with questions - for obvious enough reasons, of course, this stuff is SO bad they can NOT let anyone with serious questions near the corporate media, just apologists like Charest.

Aug 6 - the 'news' update about the election - debate tonight, wherein 'one misstep could mean the end for them!!' - just like advertising the next episode of your favorite tv show!! - which is all it is, of course, selling their program, the narrative they are creating - it doesn't matter what happens over the next few weeks, the CBC et al are writing the history books right now, as they have in the past.

- interesting, not surprising, the CBC joining the drive to get homeopathic products banned - I don't think there are any confirmed deaths at all from these things, while there are tens of thousands of deaths every year related to prescribed drugs, but the CBC PUSHES big pharma drugs, and has no interest at all in stories about the deaths and other things they cause. Money rules, of course. The story itself should be investigated - they say the got a licence for a fictional remedy from Health Canada with no evidence, no problem, and they say they, all by themselves!!, got Health Canada to change its licensing policy. This sounds a bit exaggerated, to say the least.

- PEI 'news' - the sweet young cub reporter talking to lady whose car has been vandalized with paint - 'How did you feel when you saw your car with paint all over it?' - and so goes the 'news'.

- office air conditioning biased against women - fuck, absolutely nothing is too petty for these people - I guess when there's nothing real to point at you just start making shit up .. as always, what is saddest is how many people you'd think were 'normal' get sucked into this kind of stuff - let the kids free on the 'news' rooms and this is what you get

Aug 5 - no surprise, the 'news' telling us the narrative of the 'campaign' - '..Harper will have to explain the economy..' - uh-huh - that's actually the Lib/NDP talking point, not 'reporting' - but haha who pays attention anymore? Big Brother tells us what to think. and who wants to question BB?

- just a reminder - on the Current, a nice conversation (sarc) with 3 women who are running some kind of 'man free' website or magazine or something - allowed to spew anti-male garbage, a good deal of it pure fantasy and/or lies - the host was pretending to be concerned about 'journalism', but it was a very tepid effort, no real challenges of the shit these people were vomiting up

- and then a bit on homeless people - sounds like they care, but for those able to think for themselves (all 3 of us??? I don't know ..) - you realise, not a word about why in the fuck a wealthy country like Canada has ANY homeless people - it's beyond shameful (she did manage to have a minute or two about how some people think this is their own fault...) - but getting to the 'deeper' places, we get a message - you plebes out there??? - this is your life, if you don't do as you're told to do - any fucking job at all is better than this shit, right???? - serious, now. Do you want to be one of these fucking losers??? - well suck it up, bud, and it doesn't matter how fucking bad that job is, it's better than this.

Aug 4 - the Current - drugs in sports, some lady soldier who died and her father by god is looking into into it. So many stories a real 'what you need to know' media could and should be doing - this, for instance - TPP to make Canada Post 'for profit' only - my, you might think that may be of interest to Cdns! - many other stories on RT the CBC won't EVER go near - Anti-ISIS US bombs kill hundreds of civilians - ooooeeeee!!!! No way the CBC wants us thinking about this!!!!! - oh well no point in carrying on, we all (here outside the box) know what the CBC is up to.

Aug 2 - the ongoing creation of the 'election of 2015 narrative' - here's the Cons doing 'attack ads' on Mulcair, and here's what it means!!! Tune in tomorrow, for the next installment of the Election Narrative 2015!!'

Aug 1 - the House - openly as possible - Harper has not called the election, but the House is telling us the campaign will begin this weekend, and sets the narrative stage for how we are supposed to follow it. And we have Trudeau on to emphasize that all these 3 parties really, really ARE very, very different, and there is a really important choice to make here, folks!! Brazen narrative creation - what Harper says is not important, Terry whats-his-name is telling us how it's going to be. The power of the media. and I may be the only person understanding this. (adds a bit of irony to the current idiotic 'controversy' in the media, or at least the discussion section of the stories, about the Ontario Superior "court" (what a joke calling this a 'judicial decision') 'finding' that people who live overseas more than 5 years should not have a vote - the case could be made that not being in the middle of the 24-7 full surround sound indoctrination all Cds are subjected to has had more than a bit to do with the way I have been able to figure out what is going on over there - making me a far, far more informed citizen than the indoctrinated dolts forming the bulk of the Cdn citizenry these days - and adding a bit of behind-the-scenes reasoning to the 'decision' they don't want to talk about - they last thing these fuckers want is truly informed citizens voting in their elections .. it's more than a bit discouraging to see the 99% support for this decision even in the neanderthal NP - apparently they believe that only people living in Canada and paying taxes are 'real' citizens. Another point on the 'I don't really want to go back there at all, do I?' side of the equation ... (of course the letter from my niece a few days ago gives quite the opposite feeling - there are a lot of good people over there too, and I guess I owe it to them to keep fighting.

July 30 - morning laugh - CBC goes after Naomi Wolf for comments on 'vocal fry' - why would we be the least surprised that the CBC champions Kim Kardashian over Naomi Wolf?????? (or that they are presenting obvious opinion/attack teenage pretend 'journalism' as 'news') - Wolf is actually on the right track, although she's not quite getting to the heart of what's going on - these vocalisations are signs of dumbing down, more noticeable in biologically submissive females, but also very evident in many males trained to be submissive, along with many other signs of the 30 year dumbing down that has been going on, such as immature ideas (my opinion is news!! gossip is news!!! entertainment and sports are FAR more interesting than economics or who's bombing who overseas (and whatever happens, We are the Good Guys!!), and etc ) (the 'reply' from some site called 99% invisible at the bottom is a good example of the advanced maturity (sarc) of the people who mindlessly 'defend' their dumbed-down-ness.. - the immature, spoiled little mind again - I AM RIGHT NO MATTER WHAT I DO SO THERE!!! and etc) (exactly what the dumbing downers are after - stupidity and stubbornness replacing calm maturity and intelligence-based opinions rather than 'Whatever I and my teenage friends think is right, and you have no right to challenge us!!)

- fuck, these people are completely lost in their stupidity - I listened to the Current segment with Naomi Wolf, who makes a very strong case about how these vocalizations make the people using them seem meek and unassertive - and then they have a woman on, using these patterns throughout, making her sound apologetic etc, DEFENDING them - and accusing Wolf and others of trying to actually DISempower women by 'controlling' the way they speak!!! - some of this is probably hubris and stupidity, but you have to figure the rulers are here too, and they know what is happening, and don't want anyone talking about it. When I tell my kids they should eat broccoli instead of ice cream, I'm not 'removing their freedom to choose' or 'controlling' them in some evil way, I'm trying to educate them in how to behave as a healthy adult - Wolf is doing the same, but the Kids now Rule and by fuck, they'll do it their way!!! (and as always, the rulers in their high towers laugh at how easy the masses are to manipulate - even when someone actually intelligent and eloquent comes along and is allowed to speak - the kids are NOT moving out of their comfort zone.) (and a second lady they have on to criticize Wolf sounds far far more credible, speaking in normal English tones (an older woman) - which don't automatically engender agreement, as she is wrong, but she sounds more credible. The idea that we can change this internal biological messaging by will is wrong, I think - when baby animals are frightened, they squeal in a high pitch, which tells everyone around them that they are helpless and under attack - try to imagine a lion roaring in a high pitched voice, and if you would feel the same fear as a 'real' lion roaring in the deep earth-shaking bass they have .... of course, the 'new kids' seem to believe that they can just 'will' biology out of existance, as with the attempt to mock the military leader a few weeks back who dared to say that men are kind of biologically driven to think a certain way about females - NO FUCKING WAY!!!!! was the instant outraged response of the people who think they can remake the world in their own childish fantasy ... )

(note for when I write this up later, if I do - don't forget the body language as well, the hand gestures that are so immature, used for emphasis because they know they can't express themselves clearly with the childish voice tones trying to carry meaning - pulling both hands up in front of the chest and flinging the palms out, etc ..... and also, they constantly say other people do such things and are not singled out - they don't seem to see the difference between doing something occasionally, and doing it as a normal pattern (fuck, one place they have a recent clip of Chomsky speaking, trying to say he does the same kind of vocalisations - not clear from the clip what they are referring to, but a 90-year-old guy will pretty naturally have a low voice, and the time his voices raises as if asking a question - he is actually reading a question from a paper, and it is normal and correct for the voice to go up when asking a question - these people are pretty clueless, and it's more than a bit indicative of what is going on that the CBC is on this bandwagon - the CBC has been central in raising the last couple of generations of child-adults, and must defend its work, I suppose ... )

- note the tone of voice of the CBC woman reading the 'news' as she tells us an election campaign could be 11 weeks - the 'OMG!!' is very evident in her voice - 'boy, we Cdns sure need 11 boring weeks of election campaign, eh?? boooooooring!!' - all 'cool' Cdns like her listening to her share her opinions, right? Of course they do!. Creating the narrative. Our CBC - ministry of truth.

July 28 - BC hotel turns away local residents. National news. We need to know this in the rest of Canada. Are there other things going on we might better be informed about? BRICS? (have yet to see a story on this) - just a tad more on TTRIP or TTP? Almost no coverage of these very, very important things. etc etc. Gossip and spectacle and propaganda - for real 'news', kind of anywhere but the CBC - RT, Real News, Global Research, etc. (it's just ridiculous - a pic of a lady with a big smile, two big-grin kids in the background - caption 'this lady and her kids left in tears after being denied service' - fuck. it's really ridiculous to the point of farce, what they get up to - but the scary part is how many 'progressive' Cdns look to the CBC for what they need to know about what is going on here and in the world. (and as we read on - later the manager apologized, and all is well, but she's not staying there again!! - fuck, now I see - this is a really, REALLY important story we need to know about all across Canada. What BRICS are getting up to in the world to resists the US-NATO hegemony is utterly MEANINGLESS!!!! besides Cdn stories of such importance - any intelligent news selector would choose to run the BC story!! Obviously!!!

- two stories of cops harassing young women with no tops on - OMG!!!!! - We need to know this!!!!

- and more distraction - longer campaign cost millions more!! - but in a country with a federal budget of over 300 billion dollars, a few million is literally nothing more than some fractions of a penny in your own pocket. But most people have no idea about this, and are impressed by 'Millions!!!'. Odd then that the CBC et al have no concern at all about odious debts in the hundreds of billions of dollars, and completely unnecessary 'debt service' charges in the tens of billions yearly. No???? well - maybe not all that odd, if the people running the CBC (via running the Cdn gov) are the same people pulling this massive scam. A little tiny bit odd that more Cdns don't see through this - but I've come to accept it. Sad so many people are so easily fooled by a very obvious scam, in modern progressive Canada.

- Eve Adams' next step unclear... - ???? the original story about her trying to get nominated was not that interesting, but this 'now what's she going to do??' is of no interest at all - nothing more than gossip. Oh - forgot (haha) - gossip is the first priority of the CBC .... much, much better for the citizens to be gossiping about people than asking hard questions about what the fuck is going on about more important stuff, as if we go THAT way, there are quite a few very serious 'what the fuck' questions to be asked - that nobody really wants to get backed into any corners having to deal with, I would be very, very sure ...

July 24 - it's just accepted wisdom now - Island Morning interviewing the new RCMP commander - one question - 'All gov agencies are facing budgetary cutbacks' - the massive fraud is part of the dogma now, we question it no more than we question the national reader at Xmas when he tells us in a somber voice about something happening in 'the birthplace of jesus..' - no question, good children believe in Jesus, and good children understand that government money is being cutback - we don't need to ask questions, the government is working for us, and is our friend and is only doing this because - well - because daddy knows best, and good children don't ask questions. What's on tv, daddy?

( and on the "newshaha" - some lady won an international soap box derby!!! - or something like that - WAY TO GO PEI!!!!!! (what about the Island Society Fighting Poverty and War? - huh???? if they exist, once every 2-3 years is all the time they need .... we gotta do what interests Islanders, eh????)

- and the Current - ladies selling breast milk in the US (or should they give it away??? - important shit man!) - and then some comedy thing about 'being Canadian' - well, always things more important than they have on the CBC, no point in carrying on.)

July 21 - Canada the police state - '..This October { Ezra Levant} will be prosecuted for one charge of being “publicly discourteous or disrespectful to a Commissioner or Tribunal Chair of the Alberta Human Rights Commission” and two charges that my “public comments regarding the Alberta Human Rights Commission were inappropriate and unbecoming and that such conduct is deserving of sanction.”..

- more and more and more - I wonder how many people understand that in the end, 'political correctness' is all about complete mind control? Brave New World is almost here. Don't worry, be happy. (but don't try to think...)

July 20 - expats can't vote - 'unfair to resident Cdns' says appeal court - the country, the "judges" on a high court, is just a fucking joke, when a high court says a Cdn-born citizen with a passport is not allowed to vote because they are not resident. (sorry, I guess that's pretty redundant - it's been a joke for quite awhile now before this - a bit ironic in a way, as there's nobody worth voting for anyway ...)

July 17 - some Cuban athletes defected to the US - and we hear that 'this is not reported in state-controlled media at home' - really???? sounds like propaganda to me, but we're not getting any contrary info on the CBC - we do get a lot of propaganda and gatekeeping from the 'private' media of course (aka corporate state propaganda media - a 'truth' you won't hear in the Canadian media haha..)

July 16 - interesting talk on a recent BRICS conference - two informed, intelligent citizens talking about important things in the world, what the 'real news' should be about - anyone who watches things like this cannot escape the rather sad conclusion that the CBC is nothing more than western propaganda, their 'experts' nothing more than paid propagandists trying to spread the narrative that 'good Canadian Winstons' are supposed to believe. happy little munchkins in munchkinland.

July 15 - 'the bank of canada has a crucial decision to make today, in terms of what is it going to do with the interest rate' - utter fucking horseshit, as is the 'analysis' by whatever CBC 'expert' is doing the 'report'. Religious BS of the first order - meaningless words to make the peasants believe something important is happening - and therefore the 'experts' really deserve their high jobs and prestige. Snake oil salesmen the bunch, and they all ought to be in jail. (the 'interest rate' is basically meaningless)

>> and the fearmongering about Iran - 'Iran's new prosperity could be used to support Syria!!!!' - OMFG!!!!! - etc. more horseshit.

- amusing pretension on the Current - Ms Tremonti talks with some self-styled writer about 'bad writing' - they chuckle about some 'examples' of 'incomprehensible' writing that are perfectly clear to anyone functioning at a literate level - of course, the CBC audience is supposed to be dumbed down well below that level now, and probably are to a large extent. At one point Ms T tells us 'many people on my show have talked about 'capacity building', but I have no idea what that means!' - wow. admitting that level of ignorance on the national radio - the idea of 'capacity building' is perfectly clear. I suppose Ms T could use a bit of 'capacity building' herself, in some of the basic ideas of 'real' journalism - of course, not if she wants to keep working at the CBC, where 'real journalism' is one of the serious enemies of what they do.

July 14 - again, obviously the morning shows get directives about things to do - both Island and Ottawa Morning have talks with the 'Ottawa Correspondent' about government handouts going to Con ridings - all similar questions on both shows. The narrative in construction.

July 13 - CBC national news - floods near Calgary, interview resident, 'Yea, woke up to loud thunder .... getting sewer backup from the storm ...' - national news. fuck. CBC's just a national fucking joke. A couple of thousand children die in Africa every fucking day from lack of food and preventable disease - and we hear about this how often on the CBC? Basically fucking never. Talk about skewed priorities. Fuck, that is SUCH a fucking understatement (yea, I'm sure Bob's basement flooding is of interest to the people in his community, as they're sharing problems - but why is Bob's basement flooding of the remotest fucking concern to Joe in Squirrel Harbour Newfoundland? Ms X in some Toronto slum worried about 12-year-olds with knives running around the parking lot looking to show how tough they are, and her daughters have nowhere else to play? And etc - but the CBC could care the fuck less - that's why they're there, of course, getting people to believe things are basically ok in Canada and the world, aside from the phony propaganda 'crises' they manufacture, or I should say play secretariat for, for the US who does the actual manufacturing. Listen to the excitement over the Pan Am games - Big news Cdns!!!! Yea!!!

- oh, gossip time crept up - how we have a 'feature' about Caitlin Jenner - isn't that SOOOO exciting!?!?!?!! Yea!!!! gossip 'r' us at the CBC!!!

- fuck this, there's gotta be something on RT. ((like this maybe - talking to Mickey Huff about the top censored stories of last year!!!!!! - wow, do you suppose any fucking Cdns might find this more interesting than gossip about this Jenner character????? Do you think ?????? - fuck, I suppose a few, but I suppose more are interested in Jenner .... going, going gone ....

July 11 - surprise surprise the entire CBC is like totally EXCITED!!!!! about the Pan-Am games - truly high-school level radio these days, the voice going up and down like kids talking to one another, the 'cool jargon' (the first OMG!! moment of the games!! - so, like, cool, eh???)

- the House - with Chris Hall, economics expert!! - why is the Finance Minister reluctant to admit we are in recession?!? (i.e. Chris Hall **knows** this is happening - and if the finance minister disagree, then Hall by god is going to know why.. (no, i don't believe a word the gov says about economics - but the CBC has even less credibility)- the stern CBC reporter, doing his duty and holding the finance minister's feet to the fire - ain't we really great journalists at the CBC????

>> interesting how you can follow the development of the narrative if you're clued in - in the first few minutes, Hall has said 3-4 times '**if** Cdns go to the polls this fall - !!!!!! - for the last few weeks, the CBC talk has been COMPLETELY about 'campaign starts now, everybody knows about the election this fall, etc etc' - now suddenly we're not sure??????? (haha - i will bet I am the only person in the fucking country who sees or hears this stuff .... alright, that's a wee tiny bit hubristic - there might be 1-2 others ... ) - no speculation just yet about why they are doing this, just noting it ..

- don't wait for this one this one in the Cdn media.

July 9 - good comment on modern conformity - during which some recent addition to the roll, some new Randian Libertarian, once again blames everything on socialists, and I just have to quickly set him straight (haha well, I know he's not listening but ...)

"... actually, you're sounding like an indoctrinated fool now. If you go back to when socialism was strong in Canada, you go to places like the big general strikes of the first half of the century, when the workers were fighting for a decent living in the face of the capitalist berserkers - no conformist, weak-minded, unable to think sheep to be found. Think of Tommy Douglas, the last real socialist public figure we've had in Canada - a terror to the capitalists, really, very, very intelligent and courageous. Since the 70s, growing in power every year, the capitalists have been fighting back, surreptitiously of course, and using the education system and media to create your passive, dumbed down sheep - what they want for their 'newage capitalist plantations'. It's the capitalists/bankers taking over the world, and creating their desired passive citizenry, not 'socialists', who are fighting this, but the capitalists have everyone totally brainwashed to believe, as you do, 'socialists' are the enemy - the complete reverse of the truth, if you're fighting for a future of dignity and freedom. The capitalists - well, they're running Mordor, and taking you there...'

July 8 - Island Morning - it's ok to be dumbed down children, folks!!! - a 'story' about 'adult coloring books' - new trend! Makes you feel great!! - and etc - never mind them boring world problems, nobody likes to talk about boring shit like that, leave it to your leaders, who love you and look after you - just get your coloring book out, like all children, and let your troubles, and our country, go away ...

July 7 (and 6 etc) - there is such a huge difference between the CBC and other corporate press on the Greek referendum, and the reality, it's a very clear demarcation of the masses of people so completely clueless about what is really happening in the world, and our country, and pretty much anything else of importance. No need to give the corporate press propaganda, anybody paying any attention at all knows about the silly Greeks not wanting to pay their debts, all the trouble they're in, etc - and the Truth here - for example, TCBH - The Greek People Have Voted ‘No!’ to Austerity and Economic Blackmail - check out Real News if you want for more.

July 4 - fuck the 'WE KNOW BEST' fucking nazis at it again - get these fucking people a life, somebody. The utter trivial thing now - any parent with a young child on an airplane MUST buy a separate seat for the kid they used to fly for free on the parent's lap. Now, a while back, ONE fucking instance of a kid being killed in an accident, and they leap into action, with wild projections about what might happen, therefore EVERYBODY is in the future going to follow our rules. (and of course these people are working with the CBC, as the House interviews the lady behind this, explaining why all you people need to get ready for new lockdown devices in your lives. (same kind of stupid argument for the measles vaccine - no examples ever offered at all, but YOU have to get your kid vaccinated, because even if you don't, your kid MIGHT get the disease, and then MIGHT encounter some poor wee baby who can't be vaccinated because of some other condition, and the poor baby gets the measles from your unvaccinated kid and dies, you fucking monster. Utterly ludicrous, but this is what passes as 'national debate' these days.

July 2 - swatting pranks dangerous for everyone - I'll say - look at that picture, it's just fucking ridiculous, but in a Dr Strangelove insane-scary way from people who REALLY ought to know the fuck better - a gang of heavily armed thugs calling themselves 'police' COMPLETELY out of fucking control, running around with big guns looking for things to shoot. One prank phone call and this happens????? This is fucking insanity - Chicken Little gone crazy on modern steroids. These people, and the ones who command them, ought to all be fired, and some sane people hired, who have at least some small understanding that before you go in with guns blazing, you just check around a bit and make sure there's really a problem of some sort. And if there is a problem, the LAST resort is going in with guns blazing, not the immediate knee-jerk response. This is real police state shit, and people ought to be protesting more. ( and when the 'swatting pranksters' are caught, they ought to be pretty harshly dealt with - there are 'practical jokes' and 'practical jokes' - this sort of shit is *not*, it is dangerous, and our treatment of the perps needs to reflect that. (and then we might do a bit of soul searching with some actually intelligent people and try to figure why some kids think this is funny, or acceptable - we raised em to at least some extent collectively, and what are they seeing on tv or their 'smart' phones or from their leaders that make them think this is 'cool'?

July 2 - Ottawa Morning provides a good example of how 'the narrative' gets firmly instilled in people's minds - they're talking about the federal election and who's doing well and stuff, and just in passing, the "reporter" refers to the Libs as 'for the last 4 elections they've shot themselves in the foot' - and that's the 'dogma', the created narrative - in reality, of course, to those (evidently few) of us who lived through these times thinking with our own brains rather than accepting the media narrative, it was the media pretty much 100% who derailed the Libs and put the Cons in power - explained in more detail here The Canadian Media: Creating the Narrative of the 2008 election - you could write exactly the same kind of story about the 2011 election, and the destruction of Ignatieff. I think this is meant to be one of, perhaps the, big lesson of this time in my life for me - really accepting the fact that although most Canadians 9and no doubt many others in the world, but my job these days is with Canada and Canadians) seem so smart, so aware, so thoughtful and thinking - and yet in every important way are completely under the control of the Wizard, the Masters, whoever you want to call them. I know I've talked about it a lot, but I've always felt I was exaggerating a bit, that there were at least a lot of people out there going along to get along, as it were, but really understood these lies - but more and more I am having to go this place I don't want to really go - I am one of the few here who have actually escaped a very deep and powerful indoctrination that is controlling most 'progressive' Canadians. More later. Working on it.

July 1 - RCMP musical ride oops! Swat Team Canada Day Celebrations yayyy!!! - how far behind can Canada Youth be? And mindless rampaging mobs with brutal beatings for anyone not standing tall and screaming how wonderful their country is and how they love their great soldiers!!! (yes, it was nice to see some protest from those present - but when Der Fuhrer has his mind made up, as he obviously does, the dissidents will start getting visits from people in masks, and soon there won't be many daring to speak up .... )

June 30 - Ottawa morning - a little drive by indoc reinforcement - they're joking about how 'unsafely' Australian children are taught to swim, and get into a little joke session about they're all wearing helmets etc, all quite happy in their protected little worlds I guess - then some clever kid 'reporter' laughing like he's so superior about politicians trying to wear jeans and hats at the Calgary stampede as if they were 'normal' people (haha giggle), and treating us to his opinion of what the leaders will be doing this summer, as if his opinion mattered any more than anyone else's - and then an interview with a lady who is making some kind of spread with cashew nuts and wants to call it cheese cashew or something and can't understand why the labeling people won't let her call it a 'cheese' product when there's no milk in it, and says calling it 'cashew spread' is not very clear - not only for kids, but stupider kids every day (what actually is not clear about a (something flavored) cashew spread? (she says she has different flavors of her 'cheese flavored cashew spread). Fuck - Anissa from In the Now on RT is off for the summer - not much left to listen to for a bit of daily intelligent commentary about what's going on in the world (other than the other RT shows of course but I like Anissa the best .. )

- CBC - flacking for Big Pharma again - you just know these days when the drug industry suddenly discovers some 'really big new problem that could be cured with a Miracle Drug we made for you nice people!!!!' - there's always another side to the story - but you won't get it on 'propaganda central' CBC.

>> and the CBC, like all corporate media, has been tolling mournful bells the last few days about the terrible Greek debt crisis, and how they won't do as nice but 'tough love' momma the IMF and EU banks want them to do (which is actually get down on their knees and do things really bad men like to make those they have brutally beaten do) - as always, much better explanations of important things are to be found elsewhere - such as Bill Black and Michael Hudson talk about what is really going on in Greece - never, never NEVER to be heard on the CBC - momma would be very angry with the CBC were she to tell THIS kind of truth - boy, believe it!!!!

June 29 - island Morning - a little story on a guy taking pictures of old places - the teen cub-reporter "don't you get creeped out when you go into some of these places?' - cbc - of, by and for the kids ... serious journos need not apply ...

- and more - CBC PEI headline - Why did Lucy Duck cross the road? To get to the other side?. Gotta go to RT for 'adult' stuff any more.

Dalhousie University's Faculty of Dentistry permitted a culture of "sexism, misogyny, homophobia and racism," an independent report into a controversial Facebook group has found - what utter shit. The zealots are running the country, with hysteria like this. it really is dangerous - when these kind of people get the power, and have the vindictiveness to go after anyone who disagrees with them, we get the worst kind of repression. It's related to the 'rape culture' shit others peddle. I don't know what the real numbers would be, but it would be a very, very VERY small number of Canadians who support any of this shit, and to identify Canada as a 'rape' culture, or 'racist' or 'misogynistic' because a few people are ignorant assholes is really dangerous, a kind of 'politically correct' thought control. And like we see so often - the Hunt story a week or two ago, for example - the much more likely outcome of this kind of zealotry is to severely hurt someone who is completely undeserving of their attacks. (and it's very telling that the CBC is pushing this kind of shit, pushing stupidity and obedience to these zealots - it may rate as a story, but any sane, intelligent media would have people on pointing out how hysterical this kind of shit is, how most Canadians do not agree with this stuff, therefore identifying some fringe assholes as representing 'the culture' is just another kind of extremist view (I would be very, very certain that any calm and rational canvassing of Dalhousie would find that a very, very small percentage of its students are any of the things the whole student body is accused of - they ought to be outraged by this kind of shit, rather than meekly asking the Masters how they can atone for the lies being told about them .. )

(fuck, just had a quick read of the 'report' - this is nothing but a screed, very blatantly written by a gang of zealots given a 'bully pulpit' to promote their extremist ideas, and given 'official sanction'. In other words, 'officialdom' is backing this serious addition to the creation of a thought-control society. We see this kind of stuff in dystopian societies, where the 'priests' have a zero-tolerance acceptance of contrary ideas, and are continually lurking around trying to trap someone into any tiny slipup for which they can be humiliated in public or worse, as an example to the masses - Hitler's SS wandering around looking for any tiny sign of less than complete obedience to 'Der Fuhrer', various strict religious sects doing the same, the CSIS people in Canada looking for any tiny sign of 'support' for ISIS, these femi-nazis that are getting dangerously widespread in our society accusing anyone who dares suggest they might take a slightly more moderate approach to this problem as 'misogynistic', and etc. Deeper stuff going on here, in terms of creating a dumbed down, passive society completely incapable of resisting the Brave New Feudalism they are ever more openly creating around us today, very worthy of a deeper examination, which i may or may not get at - I only do these things for my own reading anyway, as nobody is interested in our modern already-deeply-thought-controlled Canada in thoughts from 'beyond the pale'.)

June 27 - land of the free - fuck. You can think what you like!! (as long as we like what you think). Closer and closer we get to complete fucking thought control of the munchkins. (as always, saddest part is, most of them love it, and consider their controlled thought to be 'free' - BB is so pleased at the success of his efforts, I have no doubt. If you don't think bad thoughts, dave, you have nothing to worry about - and who wants to think bad thoughts anyway??)

>> and 'today on the House' - WE'RE ALL IN DANGER FROM TERRORISTS AND DON'T YOU FORGET IT!!!!!

- headline - oil patch 'battens down' - clearly indicating both the lack of professionalism at the CBC, and the fact they take sides - 'batten down' is something you do when something bad is coming, obviously, and the corporate CBC doesn't like commie govs attacking profits. A 'leftie' headline might read 'Alberta oil patch facing reality of finally paying a fair royalty' or something. A neutral headline - well, there probably wouldn't be one, as a 'neutral' media doesn't see the usefulness of this kind of projection, they'd just wait until whatever happened, happened, and then report it. Like the media is supposed to do. 'battening down' is kind of a call to arms - on your feet, oil patch people, and get ready to scream and shout in protest at this attack on your god given right to make money, and not have those fucking commies stealing it all!!!' - like that.

June 26 - Island Morning - c'mon good Germans! What makes you proud to be a Canadian!!! (first answer - I'm proud of our soldiers and police officers! - way, way too deeply brainwashed to reach, until after the war and it's too late ... ) [?? of course there are other things we could talk about - for example, on this almost the 150th birthday of our country, which has been going seriously downhill for a long time now - what do I plan to do to make this country even better than it is, particularly with things like our 'democracy' that is more like a Harper dictatorship right now? - of course, that would take some work, and blind chanting of slogans is SOOO much easier - }}

June 25 - somebody toying with the CBC? The 'newshaha' reported a story about a guy in Nfld who hit a moose, which peeled back the roof and smashed the windshield out, and he drove a long ways without realising it, stunned - very, very much like this story from a few years ago. Hell of a coincidence. Or ... the great journalistic ability of the CBC coming to the fore again ..

- more and more boring to try to listen to the CBC - turned on Ottawa Morning, and they're talking about Dalhousie students wanting some new graduation outfits - real interesting stuff for adults!! Less and less CBC, more and more RT - the differences are stunning, with CBC speaking more and more like teachers to kids, with 'appropriate' age-level subject matter, and RT adults speaking to adults. (I listen to the CBC as at least having a roundup of the major Cdn news stories, even if in kid form, with crying ladies featured where possible - and also to get the blood circulating sometimes - they make me so fucking angry sometimes, at the mush and propaganda - most younger people wouldn't notice anything different I suppose, but we older types, who remember what it used to be like with Gzowski and many others, Cdn adults speaking with and for other Cdn adults about things adults are interested in, what we have today is getting pretty tragic. Keeps me inspired to keep trying, although I really don't see much hope anymore, we're going down into the new 1000 year NWO Reich, almost for certain. Unless we can get the Great Green Island Road Show and Democracy Chautauqua rolling ...

It's kind of important to understand that the things happening in Canada, in terms of creating a dumbed down citizenry passively accepting the NWO and their 'instant lockdown ready' state, are also happening in all the English countries - probabaly most other 'advanced' countries to a greater or lesser extent to, as we see even the Nordic countries under heavy seige by rightwing forces (although a good bit of what we read in the English press may well be 'wishful thinking') - here a recent report from the WSWS about the Australian Broadcast Corp under further attack. (lots of other stuff on the WSWS about the parallel happenings to Canada in Australia. If anyone cares anymore) (and from GB, where the voting system is as idiotic as it is in Canada, and Cameron has a 'majority' with something like 25% of the vote - and is carrying on with his neocon new feudalist mandate - Child poverty to be worsened by new cuts )

June 24 - fuck, the sexually repressed CBC, always looking for an 'off color' something - I don't know how many times today I've heard them talking about Trudeau, and his remark last year about 'pull out our (fighter, whatever it is)' -

(speaking of sexual repression - some pool guard in some pool ordered an 8-year-old girl to put a top on. fuck. lots of pushback, of course, from people, but still, that people like this can get into positions of authority, and try to push their repression and opinions on others, says a lot about the country. not to mention the CBC thinking this a story worth covering on the national 'news'.

- and island Morning, showing the innate intelligence of their j-reporters - some girl talking to some kid from the university about the PEI budget, and he says, in response to a question about how much money they are talking about, ''Well, ten dollars a week, so that's 40 a month, and over an 8 month year about twenty four hundred dollars..;' ??? get it? 40x8=320, at least in the 'old math', quite a long ways from 2400. The reporter didn't clue in to anything, just went on to her next prepared question. Probably most Canadians would have to get out a calculator to check it, so wouldn't even think something might be amiss ..

Very interesting story - EU drafts plan to counter Russian media ‘disinformation’, targeting RT - the western corporate media are getting pretty worried - their massive propaganda is, of course, very, very vulnerable to one thing - the truth. RT is getting a lot of attention, with their far, far superior presentation, and their work of presenting truly alternative points of view to the corporate lies. The utter bullshit around what NATO is doing in eastern Europe, for example, is so stupid it has to be very vulnerable when anyone dares stand up and point out how ridiculous it is, by simply telling some truths. Maybe a good sign - even though when they get into the mindless 'hate Russia' shit on places like the NP, the completely braindead believers are all over me or anyone trying to point out how stupid all this shit is - evidently whatever secret polls and stuff they do are showing signs that a lot of people are maybe keeping away from the disucssion lists, but having trouble believing the lies, so they have to take some more direct action.

June 23 - CBC all a quiver again about 'investigative reporting' of some Cdn agency spending a few thousand bucks on 'business trips with benefits' or something. No doubt it is useful to expose things like this, and get a debate of some kind going about how much 'reward' such people deserve for doing a good job, if they actually do a good job, but the 'diversion' aspect of such stuff, for dumbed down audiences, is blatant when you realise the CBC either doesn't know about, or doesn't care to know about, the debt scam/fraud. tens of billions a year, a couple of trillion over the last few decades, now getting some people in jail for the rest of their lives because of that, and getting our finances on 'firm footing' for the first time in 40 years - now that would be something worth a journalism award. (maybe I'll get one someday (laugh to fall off the chair)

June 22 - a memo has gone to the managers! - both Island Morning and Ottawa Morning managed to remind somebody that 'we have money problems in Canada - where do you think the money for what you want would come from??'.

- "newshaha" - 'reporting' on Greece negotiations - 'the Greece finance minister is greeted with a playful slap from the Euro rep, like a father to a naughty son' - or something like that - no doubt at all that the CBC is fully supportive of the EU (that is to say, the banksters) and their assault on Greece. The banksters rule!!! (and the CBC actor/propagandists knows whose ass they have to lick if they want to keep those nice overseas 'correspondent' jobs..)

June 20 - 'news' story about some Loblaw employees having a money dispute with Loblaw. 'news' ?? fuck.

June 19 - the Greek government unleashed essentially a nuclear-level financial attack on not only their self-styled 'creditors', but the entire IMF-dominated financial system that controls everyone by debt - Greek debt committee declares debt illegitimate and odious - it is the kind of thing every citizen of every western country should read, as although the details may vary, the underlying ideas are similar - the IMF etc imposed 'debt' on sovereign natures is at heart odious and illegitimate. I have of course been saying this about the Canadian government debts for years - there were better available options for the Cdn government, the Cdn people had no idea about any 'choice' they had, and were saddled with this great debt without any real knowledge, or permission to the government to accure it.

not surprisingly, the mainstream media are completely burying this - this from the CBC, for instance, representative of all other corporate media I have checked (including the much-vaunted Guardian, proving its true 'this far and no farther' management purpose), simply talking about Greece not paying, and political problems, etc. Understandable, of course, as this could be very, very toxic to the rulers if anyone with a bit of brains and a bit of access to the public read this and thought about it and got angry enough and talking to others, it could be the crack in the dam that causes the whole thing to collapse. But the biggest thing is how scary it is, as a clear sign of how very strongly the corporate press now control public opinion in Canada (and everywhere else of course, but my fight is in Canada).

June 18 - CBC creating its own reality again, as always - more on the general and his 'unacceptable' remark about biology. In PC Canada, biology does NOT determine the assent/descent of man - the Feminist Imperative rules today - and if biology disagrees - well, we have fires for books, and people, we don't like. That's what Faith-based Science does. THERE IS NO BIOLOGICAL IMPERATIVE YOU WILL DO AS MOMMA TELLS YOU!!!!!! THE VORLD SORRY WORLD IS AS THE FEMINISTS WILL IT TO BE!! (and again - not a sweet fucking HINT of 'is there another side to this story? Is there such a thing as biology in the world? Do men and women have different sexual organs, different hormones, different 'innate instincts' that might, just occasionally, manifest at times?' and etc - no fucking way. When the CBC, or really the Cdn media anymore, including the 'politically correct' so-called 'alt' places, decide something is **right!!** and MUST NOT BE DENIED - there is no other side to the story. These people are seriously fascist, in the sense that 'For some things - you will think as you are told!!! You are NOT allowed to have any kind of thought that does not conform to what we tell you to think, or believe me buddy we well be ALL over you, until you have suffered severe consequences for daring to oppose us. (and by the way pal - that is democracy, and you don't forget it, or we'll be back to talk to you again)

- and 'London mayor swears at taxicab' !!!!!!!!!!!!!Now THERE is 'news' we really need to know about in Canada. Kind of like -

- and they're on the caitlin or whoever, and 'women's identity' or something - this is a Big Issue folks!!! fuck.

- and 'the accusation is the proof of guilt!!!' - some senator accused of having sex with teenager - and that's it folks, he's gone. You get accused around here, and the abso-fucking-lutely brainless twitter mob is screaming for blood - and the almost as clueless media are happy to give it to them. What a fucking joke of a society this has become. ( and SEX SEX SEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCK SOMETHING GREAT TO GOSSIP ABOUT!!!!!!! GOGOGOGO!!!! - WE CAN SHOW WHAT GREAT FUCKING JOURNALISTS WE ARE BY DIGGING AND DIGGING INTO ALL OF THE DETAILS OF THIS GREAT SEX STORY!!!! (no crime here, just salacious gossip - but hey we live for gossip!!! - listen to all the neat (non-criminal) stuff we've dug up already!!!! Boy, when we journos decide we're on your case, you're fuckin history boy!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! GOSSIP GOSSIP GOSSIP WE LIVE FOR GOSSIP!!!!!)' - fuck fuck. fuck. sorry for all the CAPS!!! but I get so fucking mad sometimes at what these people have done, and continue doing, to the country I once had such pride in, such great hopes for, I just kind of explode sometimes.

And actually, there's a really big issue happening right now that Cdns could find very useful to have some talk about - Greece declares EU debt odious - this really is the first time any western country (or any country as far as I know) has had the simple balls to stand on its feet and tell the truth about IMF debt - it's a monstrous scam, and very much qualifies as 'odious debt' - as I've been saying for years, the entire Cdn gov debt also qualifies.

June 16 - the "newshaha' - fuck, the 'news' reader finishes by saying something like 'the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. (period - 'pregnant pause' I suppose he cleverly thinks - then) - 'living in Canada makes me care a whole lot less'. Fucking seriously - how in the FUCK can a CBC 'news' reader be saying this kind of shit? I thought they were supposed to tell people in journo school that 'MY opinion!!!' is NOT news. well. pause. actually, it is very, very clear that at least the people at the CBC have NEVER been told this - the whole fucking thing is about 'my' opinion anymore - and sadly enough, the 'maturity' level of the people they hire to host shows or read news is somewhere around 'vaguely precocious teenager' - but very hubristic teenagers, thinking their shortsighted, me first, I'm ok fuck you etc view of the world is the center of the world - I hate Rob Ford! If you don't - who cares?!?!? - and etc.

fuck fuck fuck - as I keep saying - never think they can't go lower, they have a special team ...

>> and they have the story of the London kid getting shot - and it's like a couple of teens talking, with the slang and expression, 'and this is where things went bad', etc - 'everybody just totally devastated' - fuck.

- and the Current, getting on the 'hot story' of some woman who pretended she was 'black' - BIG SCANDAL OMG!!!!!! - no, it's a very minor fucking story, what is so fucking wrong with you people??

-- in the box - the Current, drive by 'we don't have any money!!' shit - docs are talking about retiring or not, and AM says 'when should doctors retire to make way for younger doctors?' - but why not have both, when we have an obvious and serious doctor shortage in Canada? We need both younger and older, and more importantly enough - and we have lots of fucking money, we're just allowing so much to be skimmed by the greedy-beyond-belief elite that we don't have enough 'money' for doctors, so we get choices like this - completely unnecessarily ...

-- the 'credit where due' department (something one very rarely has to acknowledge in the Cdn media) - it's a tiny bit nice to see most Cdn media backing off the Tim Hunt story (you know, the Nobel laureate who made a stupid joke about female scientists and immediately got 'hung out to dry' by the politically correct by incredibly fucking stupid and petty feminazis, or whatever you want to call them), with a few tiny 'mea culpa's - well, we may have gone just a tiny bit too far, even though he is guilty of saying something nobody should ever say, let alone think; sort of shit Margaret Wente, for instance - I don't like a lot of her opinions, but she seems like she is honest about what she says, and she's not one of the extremist right wingers, and we could probably get along, in a chippy sort of way). A bit, what, I don't know, something, to see they have even a tiny bit of common sense left - a very very fucking tiny bit, obviously, but, well, as I said, I spend a lot of time pillorying the fuckers, so when they do something even a tiny bit right - well, it's only fair to acknowledge it ... I guess that won't happen again this year - surprise me!!

- globe and mail just refused to allow me to log in - they have some new system, I asked them to send me the password reset - I put the password in - and no, you can't do this (new rule, I guess) - so I changed it - no, you can't do that, changed it again - no we have to have this and this - changed again - nope, sorry, new thing they needed. fuck, there are some seriously challenged people out there getting paid a lot of money to do this shit. Lousy fucking designs, obviously some kind of people with academic training, and no experience in the real world - and big corps take them out of school with NO fucking training because they're cheap or something. Fuck - say you're changing the system, here are the basic rules for your new password - but no, guess baby!!!! - fuckin country is down the tubes.

haha

- CBC 'journalism' - March airplane crash in Halifax - (I quote, as they say): '...The March 29 crash of the Airbus A320 caused the plane's landing gear to collapse, ripped off the plane's engine and severed the craft's nose cone ..' - 'the' engine. most A320s have two engines - now this would be a FUCK of a story if we had a new A320 with only one engine - or else we have a CBC junior reporter who just didn't really do very well in basic English. She wouldn't be alone.

fuck. and then '..The flight had left Toronto en route to Halifax..'. I better stop reading. this is painful.

June 15 - the Current - boy, listen to AM of the "neutral" CBC flacking heavily for getting rid of the senate!! - talking to the Cdn Taxpayers Federation, a far right group - so many things proving the CBC is very much on the political right, yet so many people believing, without thinking about anything or probably understanding anything, mindlessly wandering around 'thinking' the CBC is 'left wing' because that's what they've always been told, and they don't have the individual critical thinking facilities to understand what obvious nonsense this is.

>> 'news' about Alberta budget today - a kind of funny thing, responding to this, the Wild Rose leader says 'she can't be pulling money from thin air' - but of course, that is actually what the banks will do when she goes looking for gov bond sales. You wonder sometimes if these people are really so fucking naive as provincial party leaders they don't understand the scam? But they have to - to gatekeep people from do from exposing it -

June 14 Tim Hunt 'hung out to dry'" - at least the Guardian is a bit more honest than any Cdn media - we're unlikely to see any kind of 'mea culpa' a wee bit from the CBC or anyone else here - it's getting really bad the last few years, immediate jump to judgement, and then crucify someone, and then move on looking for the next victim, no matter how unjust the witch hunt has been, either from a bit of deeper analysis or in hindsight. Again - the dumbing down of Cdns - intelligent citizens do NOT get into this kind of immediate judgement, going along with the Twitter LCD gang (although according to what I read around the Cdn media, I may be somewhat of a 'group of 1' in that 'adult Cdn citizen' category - I'm sure there are others out there, there's no fucking way they'd get on the CBC trying to calm the zealots down, or any of the other media really, and many of them have probably long gone into hiding, to avoid their own personal Calvary from their neighbors. But if anyone reads this - get thee to the internet and hunt up the Rev Neimuller story, and get the fuck out there resisting these bastards. They are taking us to really, really bad places, and like ol humpty, once we've allowed ourselves to be once and for all pushed off the wall, it's going to be a pretty impossible job to try to salvage anything. Remember Rome - greatest empire ever, until this American 4th Reich anyway, and once they allowed the barbarians to take over, from the hubristic excesses of the rulers (very much like the shallow petty excesses of those running the CBC these days) - it never came back. The greatness that was Rome was missed - the days of Nero and Caligula not so much. Likewise Canada - the greatness of the 60s, here and in the English speaking world, will be missed - the NWO 'would be world rulers' days not so much. Not at all, probably, by whoever follows - if anyone survives, all the US etc are going to represent is a huge lesson about how NOT to try to run a democracy.

(oh look another correction!!! Apparently there were too many of the still-somewhat-intelligent people commenting on how very fucking overboard this was, and the CBC has actually kind of repeated the Guardian story about just maybe they went a bit too far - he was still a very, very bad man, of course of course!!!! - but maybe firing his was just a wee bit too much. This time.)

>> Good stuff, not to be found around the CBC or corporate media - Cory Doctorow - Light a candle, curse the darkness and win the war on general purpose computers to save the world

June 13 - CBC on again about the 'damning findings' of the auditor general on senate spending - just more stupidity - the auditor found a million bucks worth of **questionable** spending, from 30 senators - my guess would be that most of this is basically horseshit of one type or another - we know the CBC now, when they have decided they don't like something, they go into 'teenage girl exaggerate everything to hell (or just lie, what the fuck)' mode when they get their little knickers in a twist about someone or something, so their credibility anymore, sadly, is pretty much zilch.

>> and the House of course getting in on it - a long interview with the auditor general - and for maybe the first time, after all the shit going on in Canada the last 20 years, I'm starting to think - fuck, if this is the kind of thing Canadians support, I don't really want to be part of that society any more. It's so fucking mickey mouse, and so stupid, and so petty - in the context of 'the real world', this is just so petty, a few bucks here and there - if we assume that at least a lot, and possibly most, of these people are actually doing some work they think is good for the country, then as very senior members in our government, to have small-minded bean counters peeking over their shoulders and counting pennies is just beyond anything acceptable. Sure, a few of them are no doubt padding things unreasonably, and they should be reined in, but the 'take no prisoners' approach of the media these days when they have decided to go after someone is very, very unhealthy, for we as a society, where finding the middle ground is the way to a good future. When, for example, in all this 'GET THE SENATE!!!!" shit witch hunt have we had even a smidgen of perspective - where is the 'feature news special' having a calm and rational look at the senate, at what they actually do, and wondering if we get some value for the money we are spending? There have been good senate reports in the past, and as senior representatives of government attending events, they have some value - I don't support the institution, really, as contrary to the kind of real democracy I am working for - but this kind of LCD mob witch hunt is not something I much care about either, and it's getting more than a bit worrisome to see Canada falling lower and lower overall, as a caring, rational society

>> and second - a deeper thing - this is the capitalists controlling the peasants through money - just imagine any CEO accepting this kind of petty surveillance of his 'business expenses'!!!!!! - fuck. BUT - the capitalists have agreed that we can have some kind of semi-representative gov, but by fuck they are not going to spend a penny more of THEIR fucking money on it - but of course they can't say that openly, so they push 'us' (not me obviously) into this self-righteous bean-counting exercise.

(and of course there are always other things they could be doing - rather than this witch hunt bean counting, they could be encouraging debate on some really important stuff - hours and hours of air time pontificating on how terrible all the senators are, pretty much all dead air time in terms of actual useful substance being contributed to any national debate about our country - but how about some interviews with people like this - Enough is Enough - some things we really need to be moving towards, but of course things that would be a pretty direct attack on endless obscene capitalist profits, which the CBC has become a flack for, so we're never going to see such things on the CBC. And as long as most people who think of themselves as progressive follow the CBC, we're not ever going to have a chance to get to a better place.

- last week an Ideas series called Siege on Science - quite amazing, as it got right into wonderland trying to suggest that average Canadians were responsible for this, as they/we are too stupid to understand science, and think it is nothing more than magic - the whole thesis is amazingly stupid even for the CBC, and even their nonsensical logic does not hold up - they don't try to explain, even if people did think science is magic, why they would be against something that brought such wonderful things into their lives as the Ipads everyone is addicted to, that they think come from Hogwarts. But when stupid people are talking to people they consider just a stupid, if not stupider, logic doesn't really get into a lot of things they get up to. I was just so pissed off I wrote a letter (Siege on Science by Canadians????) - don't imagine I'll get any response, but for anyone curious about it. (it was quite interesting, and worrying again - a lot of comments underneath, all saying how wonderful the series was - I don't think people commenting really believe 'they' are conducting any 'siege on science' themselves, they just have these pre-conceived ideas, that Harper is doing this, it is bad, and of course the great CBC will be attacking Harper too - I don't think they even listened, or if they did, they didn't understand. Not uncommon of course for people to do this, but intelligent people shouldn't be - but in the measles vaccine stuff earlier, very obviously a LOT of people were 'supporting science' who had no clue at all of what 'science' actually was or did or said - just yesterday, I was in a bit of a 'discussion' with some people on the NP (I do this sometimes just for mild entertainment) who obviously had no idea at all what 'left' and 'right' in politics actually refer to - all they know, or I guess more correctly think they know, is that left=Libs/NDP=commie/socialist BADDDDD!!! - simple minded barbarian trolls attacking anything their master tells them to attack.

Very, very sad days for the country though. (?? have I said that before??)

June 12 - this is a new thing I'm starting to pick up on, a new twist to the dumbing down that's been going on for years, I suppose, just more open - now we can tell you - Canadians are not smart enough to understand things - I just wrote a long letter about the Ideas show telling Canadians they were too stupid to understand science (Siege on Science more in a bit) and thought it was all just magic, and now here we have Ottawa Morning telling people they're too stupid to know what the Magna Carta means (nothing nasty, of course, just all a laughing, no problem kids, you're not supposed to know this, we know you all concentrate on your Twitter feeds and what sports games are important this week, we're just helping out smiley smiley) - there's nothing accidental going on here - you get people believing they are too stupid to figure things out for themselves, and they're just blank slates waiting for the media to tell them what to believe - exactly the direction they have been pushing us for years, but they haven't talked about it this openly before

June 11 Nobel laureate resigns over 'trouble with girls' comment - fuck the over-reaction to minor incidents and demand of the 'politically correct' for pretty much complete thought control are getting really fucking scary around here.

- CBC "reporter" from Rome - '..for the federal election that starts this fall..'. Really dear. And when does it finish then?? Do you suppose wouldbe young journos listen to the CBC to learn anything these days?? fuck I hope not ... I guess they don't have to, actually, they're obviously taught this shit in whatever sad place they call 'j-school' these days ...

>> and from Halifax, where 'women and girls truly learned the meaning of the word 'misogyny' few months ago..' - what utter fucking bullshit from these people - some stupid jokes do NOT mean misogyny - but these people have really got their brains fried and there'd be no point in trying to talk to them

>> followed by a 'pursed lips' story about a 23-year-old woman/girl was suing some guy she said took his clothes off in front of her. ?????????????? fuck. maybe he did, there's a lot of pretty fucked up people in this wildly sexually repressed society, but why doesn't she just make some derogatory comment and leave the room, or just leave? fuck. what a place. The CBC fruitcakes making big stories out of nothing again.

>> and the same people running the CBC 'newshaha' is sure to add their 'voice of outrage' to the Nobel scientist noted above - happy he quit his job, etc. Some comments from outraged women also happy he lost his job - no sanity at all on the fucking 'news' these days. You want respect? Quit making big issues out of trivia - if your minds are stuck in this kind of petty shit, I wouldn't want to be working with you either.

>> seems to be another 'look at how badly women are treated here!!!!' day - the Current with an update of the 'the military REALLY treats women bad!!!' report from a few weeks ago - but it occurs to me, the odd time a soldier is killed overseas (or here), we are all told to get on our knees and pray with all this hushed respect, like these are the very angels of god offering their lives in the service of our country - I'm just wondering how these things work together - can you be a misogynistic fucking bastard at the same time you are a hero of the realm? Just one of those perhaps a bit awkward questions the Cdn media don't like to deal with. But you can't have it both ways, jack.

June 10 - CBC (and the rest of the media of course) all a-shock!!!OMG!!!!! about the MASSIVE senate accounting scandal!! OMFG!!!!! - a MILLION DOLLARS of questionable expenses, among THIRTY senators!!!! - mostly spectacle, distracting simple-minded Canadians, but also the rightwing attack on government in action, pretending this sort of triviality is important - and also distraction - of course, the two trillion that politicians have enabled bankers to steal over the last 30 years, with the full cooperation of the media, and all the related stuff, is a serious major crime, but we are not ever, ever, EVER FUCKING EVER!!!!!! going to talk about THAT on the corporate media, are we children????? hahahahaahaha.

>> the thing is, in 'social democracy' settings, we just naturally trust each other, until there is some obvious problem - but capitalists are another breed - the capitalist is trying to fix whatever part of the system to ensure the maximum flow of money to his bank account, by any means he can get away with, and thus assumes everyone else is doing the same, so non-trust is the norm in capitalism. And we have been under the control of serious capitalists for the last 30 years, and this is the outcome, or one of many outcomes, in which we are all expected to assume everyone else around us is trying to game the system, and be suspicious of everyone. Not a nice way to live, for hardly anyone - sure those who manage to steal the most have a lot of toys, but one wonders really how much real 'life satisfaction' they ever have - not much, I think, for many or most. The lives of small people back in the 1950s were pretty good, by and large, in the social democracy of the times - people working at decent jobs they enjoyed, living in places where trust was the default position, not having to have both adults in a family working just to get by, and etc.

>> and the big new Evan Solomon 'scandal' - basically more gossip, mountains out of molehill shit, he did nothing really wrong here - but it is really barf-inducing to listen to the self-righteous people on the Current today with the tight little sticks up their asses, all so 'holier than thou', talking about the great responsibility of journalists, and how they would never, never NEVER!!! do anything like this, and etc - fuck fuck fuck -

>> and another 'YOU DO NOT HAVE FREE SPEECH HERE IN CANADA YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE!!!!' story - the guy has a problem with women, and this is his life experience, but all the femi-nazis ( who obviously rule the CBC) go fucking ballistic over somebody daring to have a 'life experience' they don't approve of - fuck. again,. fuck fuck fuck. Trivia rules in Canada, while 'real' stuff gets ignored. We're really pretty close to the end, if I don't manage to get out to wake some people up - this kind of thing has to be one of the signs of 'far gone' decadence, the trivial opinions and tantrums of the children of the ruling class get turned into 'news' while the signs the empire is falling apart at the seams - well, who cares????

June 9 - Ottawa "news" - some football game, you buy a ticket for two games and are not allowed to leave between games - some people bought the ticket and then complained about the rule - and this is "news" in Ottawa!!!!!!! - fuck.

Consent to harm - '...When it comes to risk of bodily harm, what we are allowed to consent to is fraught territory...' - not much doubt about the meaning here - the basic assumption is that 'your government' rightfully controls everything you do. The CBC is telling you so, and we know the CBC only tells the truth, and is a really good momma guiding us down the paths of righteousness, don't we children?

June 8 - Montreal 'cracks down' on sex tourism - the efficient use of our cops. Fuck what a totally fucked up country this has become.

Island Morning (7:30 "newshaha") - 'Japan and Canada are seen as a holdout..' - fuck.

June 7 - "newshaha' - the lady reader is lecturing the children about how not to use English - some story about Baja California - she says 'ba-ja' as it is spelled, but of course most people who have spent a bit of time with geography know it is 'ba-ha'; then she gets into horse racing, and tells us about the winner of the 'bel-mount' stakes. good going, CBC. good news, I suppose, is that I may well be the only person out here bothered by such things, or cares what is happening to the CBC (no, the 'save the CBC' people seem to think the content is fine, they want more money from the gov so the propaganda can be spread more or something (sorry, I guess that was sarcastic - but the 'save the CBC' gang do seem to focus only on restoring CBC funding, and don't have anything to say about content - but I want the CBC management and senior staff absolutely gutted, and some real people who actually support democracy and good journalism back in there - there's lots of candidates out there writing on the web (none in the corporate media I can think of), before we give them any more money.

it was creepy - fuck, the absolutely juvenile narcissism of these 'new breed' of young women working at the CBC who thinks the world should revolve around them is getting right out of hand. Every showoff kid taunting someone by name calling etc is just looking for attention - apparently the CBC people are too immature to understand this. Some entertainer making 'crude' sexual remarks about a young woman has been going on forever, and will go on forever, like human stupidity, and all the whining and self-pity and navel gazing in the world by the CBC is not going to change it. And wouldn't it be just fucking amazing if they had a 100th of the degree of sympathy for others who really need it that they do for themselves? You could go around the poorer parts of any city in Canada and find kids going to school hungry, or getting abused by their parents or older kids, and this really is a fucking crime in this country - a crime occurring daily to what? tens of thousands of children???? And the CBC, to judge from the things they choose to cover, doesn't give a sweet fucking shit about those kid - just gossip about teenage girl stuff. Looking for new depths to fall too, I guess - I almost shudder to think what they'll find to outdo this, in terms of sheer pettiness being passed off as 'news'.

- chuckle of the day - CBC wins multiple journalism awards - that's odd - I can't for the life of me (as the old dad might phrase it) think of a single person working at the CBC that any normal person would call a 'journalist' - lots of propagandists and gossipers - no 'journalists'. (sure they do some good quality things, and in journalism school they'd get a good grade for them - but in the real world here, 'journalism' means you go where the rulers do not want you going, and the CBC is totally under the control of the rulers - good docs about safe box things, but nothing at all about 'real' stuff - and if you're not **really** going where the powerful do not want you going, you can NOT call yourself a 'journalist'. period. )

"newshaha' next hour (07:00 Atlantic) - some 'grand reopening' of Canada House in London - and a big 'expose' of how much was spent - 'over $200,000' 'of taxpayer's money'. It gets more and more obvious - governments spending too much money (allegedly) is a bedrock of rightwing propaganda trying to convince people to 'reduce' governments etc - pretty interesting that the CBC, pretending to be 'leftie', is promoting so many rightwing issues (I mean, seriously, a couple of hundred thousand dollars for this is really trivial, given the size of the government budget. Of course, as I mention from time to time, serious spending problems, like 50-60 billion in completely fraudulent "debt service charges" every year that *would* be worth informing people about, are never mentioned. (the whole Duffy-senate 'trial' shit is another very small story blown into something way, way, way the FUCK out of proportion. But that's a big part of the job of the CBC, of course, spectacle and mush for not-too-bright teenage-mind-adult-body citizens, keeping them interested in 'the things of childhood' while leaving far bigger things out of the discussion at all. Trivia - still hearing about the 'big FIFA scandal' - more trivia - it's not a matter of national concern in any way whatsoever to most people here what corrupt shit a private soccer league gets up to. (of course, if there's a chance to go after Putin, well, that's another thing altogether... guess we won't be hearing THIS guy on the CBC anytime soon haha - FIFA and geopolitics - or here US imperialism and the FIFA corruption investigation) (but finishing with more important news!!! - oh goody - we have 'brand new pictures of Princess Charlotte on our webite!!!' - and we REALLY REALLY care about that at the CBC !!!!!)

>> and later 'newshaha' - the CBC reports 'dozens' of protesters are at the G7 media - sounds a bit suspicious - RT says 'hundreds' - G7 summit protests. Betcha anything RT is closer to reality.

June 5 - "news" - 'Harper says Russia should never be let back into the G7 as long as Putin is the leader' - fine, that's something said by Harper that should be reported - but any actual 'news' organisation not part of the corporate state propaganda media (which is of course, in the end, controlled by the US hegemon, which really, really hates Putin for standing up to them, but he's just too powerful to 'shock and awe' out of existence as they did to Saddam and Gaddaffi, and are really serious about doing to Assad now one way or another, leaving Iran next in line) would have some commentary to go along with this, explaining why Harper is a pawn, and Putin and Russia are actually not the monsters the hegemon is making him out to be, far from it actually - for example, American Paul Craig Roberts has quite a different opinion - Putin the leader of the moral world - obviously, any citizen wishing to be informed needs to read or listen to a variety of opinion and make up their own mind - it is the job of the media to provide such a variety, if they are really 'serving' the people, as they claim to be - when they continually push one side of something, it's pretty obviously propaganda - especially in cases like this, where the truly engaged reader, reading widely, understands the many lies they tell about how 'evil' those they dislike are, and how wonderful the US is - which is, really, after the last 50 or 400 years, just to laugh in cynical disgust.

June 4 - and another Libertarian type speaks up against the tobacco ruling - award should make other industries nervous -

>> CBC “news" - starts with a story - 'one year ago, there was a 911 call, and then another! - and then some shots ...' and etc, all in a suitable story telling voice, of course - and then we go on with the now-established story of the Moncton shootings. All very dramatic, for the children being instilled with the modern Cdn narrative - but 'news' ?????? I think not .... haha, but then, the CBC hasn't actually been in the 'news' business for quite a few years now .... but listening to some more “newshaha'casts, we see this is narrative in creation - little stories about some of the heroes, one about some police dog that helped somebody last year - 'now they meet eye to eye - and they know 'I've got your back' - the use of the 'tough guy' simplistic but catchy phrases they like, a 'gang' thing - we can all identify with this stuff, we all want to be like that, heroic, standing tall for our country with our comrades against some evil enemy - all teenage boys, and more and more girls, anyway - dumbing down, deep deep indoctrination

-- and it is **really** noticeable - listen to RT for an hour, and then some 'current events' and 'newshaha' on the CBC - and it is so obvious how the CBC people have been told/taught to speak as teachers would speak to young children, using the voice etc to show the reaction expected from the children - on RT, you have adults speaking to adults - (here is a very good interview, just far above anything you would hear on the CBC these days - US portrays foes as stronger than they are because they need an enemy" - Sophie and Co - current events for adults, rather than the CBC propaganda for dumbed down indoctrinated citizens being told what their narrative is ...

>> followed by another pretty much 'spectacle' thing, the FIFA stuff - again, more propaganda as well, as the 'deep background' story here is nothing more than the US once again going after Russia after anything at all, as the point of this seems to be denying Russia the 2022 world soccer cup, or something. Much better analysis of this on RT (surprise surprise)

>> and of course more on the Moncton shooting last year - we poor, poor Canadians!! So innocent, such a traumatic thing when somebody runs around and shoots somebody!!!! - they really encourage people to fall apart in terror and helplessness - all the better to control you, my dear. But a reality check occurs to me - you know, Cdns have been either bombing directly, or supporting the bombing of, innocent people in middle eastern and other (Yugoslavia) for the last 15 years - just fucking imagine the trauma of a bomb falling onto your house from somewhere in the sky - no 'terrorists' in sight, just you and your family, including young children and old folks, sitting around having dinner, or sleeping, when fucking BOOM!!!!! - bodies and blood and pieces of bodies all around - no reason, no rhyme, just terror from the skies - THANKS CANADA!!!! - do you suppose that's what they think over there? Kids shot off bikes, people shot in cars, drones taking out wedding parties - fuck, in the mid east, since the US decided a few years ago it wanted to control everything over there, people - big numbers of people - getting killed in a regular basis is not some once in a lifetime traumatic event, it's a fucking part of your daily life - imagine a 'good day' being a day someone in your village does NOT get killed from some fucking random American (with Canadian support) bomb or raid??? - haha, don't wait for THAT story on the Current haha.

June 3 - the mind controllers are out in force again - Ottawa Morning talking about some lady who was drunk and killed someone a few years ago, and was just found guilty this week - and they want to know if there are still any neanderthals around who think drinking and driving is ok - you listening, children??? We REALLY disapprove of this, and will be after you with all the shaming we can muster on the CBC!!! - little self-righteous teenagers or bullies going after someone. Dumbing down in action.

Really, really scary world these people are trying to build - and looking more and more like the opposition is small and fading. But you never know -

- just read this today - Canada' devolution from peace seeker to war crimes" - one of the best pieces to come out of Canada in a long, long time - evidently the guy has been around and writing awhile, and I've never heard of him, because there's no real outlet for real 'alt' stuff to get shared in Canada, so there could be a lot more out there (although the comments in the NP and other places when someone is bragging about how PC they are is pretty scary, all the brainwashed obedient drones leaping on the bandwagon telling us what good children THEY are and mocking the few who dare speak up for a bit of freedom.

(speaking of - usually Ms Blatchford is leading the gossip in the Star, but gotta give her credit for standing up to this bit of ridiculous PC stuff - lawsuit decision deserves to go up in smoke - don't suppose she'll get a chance to speak about this on the CBC, unless somebody decides to take a run at making a mockery of her, which might be dangerous, she sounds like she's quite able to stand up for herself.

>> This is just fucking amazing - battling Russian propaganda - we know the American media is 100% corporate military state propaganda, and most of it at a very stupid level (Fox 'news' etc) - but to have this in a Canadian paper, esp one of supposed stature such as the GM, is just, well, amazing - surely to god they are not all that fucking stupid that they believe this???? The lies are just atrocious, pretending the American/Cdn MSM lies about 'Russian aggression' etc are true????? And when the Russians try to respond with a bit of truth, that is 'propaganda'??? Fuck - we are truly near the end days, when the Lies shall be honored as 'truths', and the Truth mocked as propaganda, by the most respectable media organisation in the county??? Fuck - you don't even know what to say at such brazen lying - you can't talk to people who look in your face and lie like that - you can't, I think, run to the excuse that 'oh, they must believe it!' - no, I can see a lot of people believing this, obviously, I spend time commenting on articles on the NP and Globe, and obviously a lot of 'ordinary not-too-fucking-bright Cdns do believe this shit (and equally obviously there are a lot of trolls on these comment places whose job is to jump people like me trying to insert a word or two of sanity) - but it is equally obvious that the top level people, those making editorial decisions, are very aware that this shit they are peddling is lies, and that makes them, I guess, some pretty fucking evil people. Three thousand dollar suits and five hundred dollar lunches and a lot of quite pathetic brown-nosers not in any way withstanding.

June 2 - Ottawa Morning - Robyn having a patronising discussion with some guy about idiots who think they can do things themselves around the house. We're all, in CBC world, just little munchkins, helpless and relying on Mother to look after us. YOU HEAR THAT CHILDREN????? DO NOT DO THINGS YOURSELF!@!!! you poor children are just not competent, and we have specially trained people to do things for you - not to mention specially trained experts to tell you what to think - you people surely do not want to try to THINK for yourselves, OMG hahahahahahaha!!!!!

>> tobacco companies ordered to pay - more political 'legal' shit - this has nothing to do with anything any intelligent, neutral observer would call 'justice' - just 'politically correct' punishment of someone the PCers have decided they don't like. This kind of thing is accepted as “evidence" - :..."Did you stop to think what a cigarette is? It destroys you — your health is totally destroyed," she said, holding up two photos of her late husband, who died in the summer of 2012 from lung cancer at the age of 68...." - obviously just personal opinion, we all (honest people at least) know people who smoked all their lives with no apparent damage - sure some people die, a lot more don't. But balance has nothing to do when you're on a politically-driven pogrom of some sort - very disturbing how much this goes on anymore, with anything the gov wants to do, and the obviously completely indoctrinated little obey-bots screaming out insults at anyone who dares disagree with dogma and try to speak 'truth'.

May 30 - a new "humor" thing (the idea of CBC 'humor' is laughable in itself) - but they have 'famous people' reading famous lines from old movies in a 'funny' way - starting with 'I love the smell of napalm' - from Apocalypse Now, of course, laughing at the Americans dropping napalm on Vietnam, killing millions, causing birth defects that last to this day - a real laugh. Just as a comparison, what if they dragged up some line from a movie about the German-Jewish holocaust, and tried to play it for laughs? Think that would pass unremarked???? I kind of doubt it. haha. (but for some far, far better humor stuff, as always, try RT - Lee Camp and Redacted Tongith - humor for adults who care about their country, not the CBC shit for dumbed down drones mindlessly supporting the NWO as instructed by the CBC.

they saw her belly!!!!OMFG!!!!! - it's obviously an epidemic. I keep starting comments on stupidity, and they keep getting stupider. You couldn't make this shit up, as they say. If there's any people with functioning brains left out there, you better watch who you associate with - this stuff appears to be contagious.
