Gordon Black Hole Campbell, Propaganda, Deceit, Lies!

Well well well, what an interesting last couple of days, where do we start........

Lets start with Campbell`s interview with Sean Leslie at 4:30 pm Sunday on CKNW......

Gordon Campbell said at least 6 times, "Not a shred of evidence".......Interesting how many times Campbell used that line, I believe Campbell has lost his mind, I can picture a delusional Premier that everytime when he hears the word "evidence" involuntarily shouts out.....

"Shred!".......As in Mr. Premier, the ministry sees evidence of falling revenue....Campbell shouts out "Shred!".........Mr Campbell.....There is strong evidence ....."Shred!" "Shred!!" "Shred!!!".......

And the end of the Sean Leslie interview......First off, Sean Leslie conducted a very firm, cordial but stern interview of Campbell, and 2 things became very obvious with the Sean Leslie interview, #1)...Gordon Campbell had a PAB (Public affairs bureau) to coach his words through the interview, #2)..Gordon Campbell was upset with the interviewer......

At the end of the Sean Leslie interview ...Sean Leslie said to Campbell, "If you are still premier in a year will you return for another interview".....To which Campbell replied, "After this interview I don`t think I will ever return" Snip.......

With that the interview ended and it was off to a commercial break, up next was Farnsworth of the NDP.........

Sitting with my Dad listening to this garbage from Campbell, my Dad piped up, "Did Campbell just say what I think he said" (referring to the "I`ll never be back" response from Campbell)

I confirmed with my dad that Campbell did indeed say that, we were shocked, Campbell lost it!.....Meanwhile we were waiting for Mike Farnsworth.......But immediately after the commercial break it wasn`t Farnsworth it was Gordon Campbell again, .........Obviously the PAB said to Campbell to call back in and correct your last statement, to which Campbell did, after saying he would never be back, he called back in and said "I would love to come back anytime"......Too late Campbell, you showed your anger and PAB gave you direction.......!

Also on the Sean Leslie show.....Campbell said that our BC Economy was booming, 20,000 jobs added since the HST, that my friends is a complete lie, job hiring numbers did not spike in July, there is always a fair bit of student and part-time job hiring in the Summer, there was NO 20,000 full time jobs added to BCs economy......

Gordon Campbell also said on the Sean Leslie show that "wages would rise".....Again, another lie, minimum wage is frozen at $6.00 per hour the lowest in Canada by almost 40% to the next lowest Province......And as for rising wages,.....I come across a story in the Alberni Valley Times and in The Hook at the Tyee...........you can hear the Sean Leslie interview here....Cue-up 4:30pm sunday

Catalyst is demanding a 21% wage rollback from all it`s employees, first off the union has already given up pensions, given up job security, given up seniority rights, given up pre-negotiated benefits, and the employees have also given any and all wage increases and have already rolled their wages back nearly 20% and now Catalyst wants employees to rollback wages by another 21%........

Let me be perfectly clear, slave labour in Chinese mills with raw BC Logs are putting our workers at risk, we can`t compete with $5 dollar a day employees, yet if Gordon Campbell would have slowed raw log exports rather than a 3000% spike in raw log exports since 2001 we wouldn`t be in this dire situation......But as for the rising wages Campbell spoke of on the Sean Leslie show......Can you say Bullshit!....Read about Catalyst rolling back wages and shuttering mills here

So Mill workers in small towns are getting hosed on property taxes because of industrial TAX law suits, getting hosed on BC Hydro rates, hosed on Ferry rates, hosed on the HST, hosed an any re-training money are now getting their wages slashed to the point of turning mill jobs into McFlip jobs!

And Colin Hansen today got into the spin/lie game, Colin ferrett face Hansen made some ridiculous claims today.....

Colin Hansen said of corporate tax revenue...."We are forecasting, it (Could) mean as much as $2.7 billion in extra revenue over 4 years".....

Hansen said.."We will use $565 million of the extra money $2.7 billion over the next 4 years to reduce the deficit"snip

"We haven`t decided how to use the remaining $2.1 billion of the windfall" snip.......

And still with Hansen`s forecast....He is predicting forestry revenue to increase 19% this year, 32% the year after that and another 5% in 2013.......How can he predict increased forestry revenue when the US is in a double dip, housing is still in collapse, and.......And forestry in Canada is predicting losses, read how big here

And Catalyst will be closing several mills and be laying off another 1000 employees, across Canada the forestry and pulp and paper industries are forecast to lose nearly $600 million dollars, yet Hansen`s rose coloured glasses wearing forecasters see it different!

And I remind you what Colin Hansen and Gordon Campbell said pre-election and what they said days after the last election.......

Colin Hansen said pre-election....."BC is in great shape, BC is in better shape thay any other jurisdiction in the world...$495 million dollar deficit maximum......The HST is not on our radar"snip

So there is a sample of the lies Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen made pre-election.....Now, lets compare to what Hansen and Campbell said 1 week after the election.....

Hansen and Campbell said after the election to try and justify them being out by billions in their deficit forecast...."Over the last month corporate revenue declined by over $1 billion dollars, personal income tax declined by millions, the speed and ferocity of the financial numbers overwhelmed us" SNIP......You can read Hansen gobbilly goop from today here

So here`s the deal folks, Colin Hansen relied on forecasters pre-election, the forecasters were wrong, big time wrong, the forecasters in the course of 6 months were out billions of dollars, Colin Hansen and Habitual liar Gordon Campbell talked of the speed and rapidness of the economic fall and collapse of Provincial revenues yet today.......September 13/2010 Colin Hansen and Gordon Campbell ...............................

Cart out the same forecasters and despite the US being in a double dip recession, China demand is falling, exports are down, Europe is in the tank, tourism is flat, housing is flat, housing prices are falling in Canada and interest rates are rising yet Colin Hansen and Gordon Campbell cart out the same economic forecasters and deliver some gobbilly goop numbers about corporate tax revenue over the next 4 years,!!!!!!

Today`s budget update forecast isn`t worth the paper it`s written on.....I have had a quick look at Hansen`s forecast numbers, they have forecast a big spike in Natural gas revenue, Hansen forecast a massive spike in sales tax, a massive spike in both corporate and personal income taxes..........

Yet.....Yet friends, isn`t that what Colin Hansen and Gordon Campbell did last year, blame the forecasters, blame the world, blame the US depression, I suggest that anyone who believes these forecasts are idiots, they were out billions of dollars in a few months yet Hansen expects the BC Public to believe these same clowns over a 4 year forecast period!!!!!!

Lets have a quick look at the non -binding referendum scheduled for September 24/2011....

First off, Gordon Campbell is refusing to make a legislative bill in parliment that guarantees that the HST referendum is binding, on the radio today Campbell said that all that is required is a simple majority...50% plus 1.......

Yet he won`t enshrine it in law, also, Gordon Campbell won`t be premier by the time the referendum is here, Campbell is stalling for time, but my question to Campbell and the BC Liberals is this.....If Campbell isn`t premier on September 24/2011....Will the new leader, new premier guarantee that a simple majority is all that is required to exstinguish the HST.....

Whether it be Rich Coleman...Falcon...De Jong...Abbot....Will any BC Liberal premier or interim leader honour the simple majority of the referendum, why not put it into writing, legislative writing?
Also today Campbell said if the simple majority votes to remove the HST he will honour the vote and remove the HST.......

But....Campbell didn`t say how long would it take, is Campbell talking about if the people vote against the HST he will after 2013 give notice to Ottawa that BC wants out?......

Gordon Campbell needs to clarify before the referendum exactly how long it will take to get out of the HST....

Now call me skeptical, Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen are habitual liars, "I won`t sell BC Rail...I won`t tear up contracts....An open and honest Government....the HST is not on our radar...No cuts to health....No cuts to education...No cuts to community groups and charities"....

Gordon Campbell with gag laws, BC Rail trial, the HEU supreme court trial...Highest child poverty and lowest minimum wage, 40% lower than any other Province.....

Yet Gordon Campbell expects/wants us to believe we can trust his word, not legislative words but Gordon Campbell`s personal words that the referendum will be binding, words from an ex-premier that won`t even be leader come the referendum....."Recall in the Fall"

As for paying back all HST monies collected by the Province until the tax is removed , too complicated, too expensive, let`s split the difference and call it a day, just remove the damn tax and move on..

And hello to the NDP....NOW what, I warned you about your wishy washy stance on the HST....I warned you to campaign on removing the HST no matter what the cost.....

Now what?.....Because it`s quite clear that the BC Liberals won`t remove the HST before another election, they will campaign on removing the HST in the 2013 election and will pull a Jean Chretian and never remove the tax.....But what about you NDP...Are you going to make a strong get rid-of -the-HST-no-matter-what-stance.......

Or are you going to draft behind Rich Coleman and play hide the truth!

Meanwhile democracy is being sucked into a black hole and 4 million citizens are being treated like very young children, we need to know the questions in the referendum now and what the out option is.

The Straight Goods

Grant, excellent post. BTW, Brian really showed up the three stooges this morning. Seemed like they were mad at Brian. They obviously must be after reading about the truth about them here!

And yeah, where the hell is Carole James and the NDP? Repeal the HST no ifs, whats, or buts!

And today another fu#@in poll by Mustel showing that the LIEberals are only 9% behind the NDP. What the fu#@ is up with that, Carole?!

Grant G said...

Yes...Vaughn Palmer went into attack mode on Brian today....First they cut him off....And then argued with him off air...

What Brian was saying was....The $1.6 billion hasn`t been booked yet, the final installment isn`t being booked until 2013....So don`t spend the money....

They cut Brian off and attacked, Brian also wanted to mention(but was cut off)....

That the Gordon Campbell/Colin Hansen hints about knocking 2% percentage points off the HST in 2013 are unrealistic, each point would mean a $800 million dollar hole in the budget....

Palmer and Baldrey.....I`m afraid are nothing but lying stooges!

500 job cuts coming to Canwest/Global this week...Let`s see how many stooges have a newspaper job next week...

Cheers

Grant G said...

As for the Mustel poll....They are garbage, Evi Mustel is a friend of Gordon Campbell and business partner of Joan Mcyntire (BC Liberal MLA)..

Mustel polls are ALWAYS out at least 10 percentage points in BC...

Not worth the paper it`s printed on...

Angus Reid polls was the most accurate in the Last 5 vFederal elections and last 4 Provincial elections...

Evi Mustel...LOL LOL..Say hi to Joan Mcyntire for me would ya Evi?

Cheers

There must have been a pony in that studio... with so much horseshit been tossed about. Brian got to them. Gordo lied about everything, and as usual Big Bill, sat like the princess he is and lobbed easy questions at gordo. The three stooges have their orders, make it look plausible, make it look real, sound real. Sounds more like the 250 plus PABsmears are working overtime to save their boss. RECALL THESE CRIMINALS, expose them for the carpetbaggers they really are.

Poll was taken August 26 - September 7 (the HST/FOI stuff came out September 1st). Here's the link: http://www.mustelgroup.com/pdf/20100914.pdf

Grant is right about the LIEberal CONnected Musty firm. The World's Most Accurate Pollster ™, Robbins SCE Research, just released another BC poll today:

"If an election were held tomorrow would you support Gordon Campbell’s BC Liberals?
Yes 16.5 %
No 80 %
Undecided 4 %"

LOL... Sha na na na, hey Gordo, good-bye!

Talk about a bunch of bullshit Ron Cantelon who by the way will be re-called in our area had the goddam nerve to say the exports of lumber has increased by millions of board feet to China when in fact in Nanaimo the opposite is true as the only exports to increase are those of raw logs. If you read this Ron which you do everyday, your days are numbered in the political arena Cantelon. We have had it with your support of raw log exports, fish farms, poverty wages, lifting offshore drilling moratoriums,the HST and not listening to the constituents in your riding. Kiss your million dollar pension goodbye you transplant from Ontario to which you are welcome to return anytime. I'm sure the people in that province wouldn't put up with your bullshit either. You don't even have the gonads to respond to e-mails yourself as you have your assistants type your garbage. I'm sure you don't have the knowledge to operate a computer is that why you fail to respond to your constituents. Ron Cantelon i will work my bag off to re-call you if you continue your support for the HST and all of the above. It is time for you to represent those you claim to represent.

Societies problems go way beyond what is disscussed here, ridding ourselves of the HST & Liberals will not change the way in which society is being manipulated. If you arrest the drug dealer there is quickly another one to take the vaccant spot and drug dealing continues. We know how to end it though, if we should choose to do so.

Life needs to change on a more fundamental level, it has to start with what humans consider to be acceptable. If we don't change our mental concepts of justice and compassion we will continue seeing a repeat of yesterday and society will continue to be a human resource. Some members of society could use a good dose of humility.

Grant, this article is one of the BEST you've ever written! Thanks for being impartial and kicking some NDP ass too - they deserve it. Richly.

Kim said...

Anon 9:25 Very true. We need a global Bill of Human Rights. And we need to change the way we evaluate economics to include intrinsic standing value and sustainability. For starters...

Sean Leslie did what 'NW rats told him to do, sound stern, cordial and firm with his 'interview' but do not question Campbell about anything he claims, which as usual are all lies. Again the corrupt, absolutely corrupt media and Campbell played their games. Ask the big C, I wish, questions but do not question him back. Campbell pretends to bad-mouth his best friends, the corrupt, absolutely corrupt media, gets verrry angry (fake) and calls back. 'NW (absolutely corrupt media) says to PAB (Campbell) that they have to try and make the public believe their lies again so let's pretend we are mad at each other and then call back and we'll kiss and make up.....ALL MEDIA AND politicians ARE CORRUPT....absolutely, positively no exceptions.

Mealy-mouth Farnworth came on with another opportunity to rip the whole set-up apart and says nothing just nothing.....except.......The NDP ARE KEEPING THE HST for 5 years (forever).

Looking for someone to vote for....the NDP would be in no position to audit or in any way dig, really dig into and publicize all the corruption Campbell has served this province, they are far too involved in it and cozy, even oftentime praising the Corrupt B.C. Liberal party. They truly have all been on one big party on our tax dollars and their self appointed pigS at the trough wages. Everybody involved, the corrupt media, politicians, Elections B.C., the list too long to list, have long since been bought off and bribed and they have all run this province into a big black hole.

Like E.D and another guy said (the only Union Campbell doesn't hate is his own Union, my words), the Bilderberger Mafia Union.

jaydee said...

Carole James and her mob continue to court big business and campaign against the HST!!!!!

GO NOW, RIGHT NOW, CAROLE JAMES AND TAKE MOE WITH YOU.

jaydee said...

Can't wait til the big C's Union and other like Unions start raiding each other. It always happens with the trillions of dollars involved here.

jaydee said...

It may have already passed but if not, please don't forget to attend Carole's big party for business....oops....and then for everyone, depending on what part of town you live in....Admission to listen to the drone: something like $250.00. I'm sure all the down- and-out downtown eastside and the working poor will be there too.

jaydee said...

Attack Brian off-air and no phone-ins on CKNW audio vault, just like the lying cowards they all are. Not even the entire mob media complete with the big C would publicly debate Brian...Brian 10, the enemies 0. Corrupt, absolute corrupt media reports the mob media and C wins the debate.

jaydee said...

Grant like you say, 'this is when the rubber hits the road'.

GENERAL STRIKE is the only hope we have. Hello big unions, where are you? Camping out with the enemy (corporates and government) still? It's all about money.

Anonymous said...

Bill Boring and Michael Levy just keep ramping it up as to being pro HST. But they wouldn't mention the 7% has not been on Equipment since 2001. Business was supposed to create thousands of jobs with this break. Nil nada Bill still denies being a liberal shill. Ha HA

Henri Paul,

I laughed and enjoyed your humor enough for two of us. It was hilarious and there is nothing offensive about it.

I always enjoy your short, to the point, at times humorous comments here at my favorite political blog guy's site and some other sites which I spend little time at.

Thanks,
Jean

Henri Paul,

Absolutely no problems and no apologies needed, it's all OK. I was just confused, which seems to happen all too often these days. I take medications and sometimes they leave me with muddled thinking. I frequent here and will be on the look-out for your sense of humour.

All the best

Campbell is a dictator. We all should know. Dictators, do not care about Constitutions, Civil Rights and Liberties, nor, Democracy and Freedom. There is plenty of, history to pull that from. Fadden of Canadian Intelligence, is keeping an eye, on both BC and Ontario. We also know, anyone opposing Campbell, soon loses their jobs. Two, Elections BC people, got vendetta's from Campbell. Any bad press, that paper, will get no government ads, same with TV stations. Judges, ei, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BC Rail, would lose her job, if she doesn't play ball, and cheat, to keep the real criminal (Campbell), out of the trial. RCMP, are dodging from, anything remotely, to do with Campbell, they could lose their contract with BC. FOI is tampered with by Campbell.

Chomp, chomp Chong, chomped her way through, $6.000, for her expenses for, fine dining. Campbell's expenses, are the highest, of all the other premiers, in all of Canada. All of Campbell's lies, corruption and greed, is killing this province. Who in the hell, believes newspapers anymore? Journalists, no longer believe in honest journalism. I buy no newspapers, out of Vancouver, nor Victoria. Radio station's and TV stations, are all under threat. You can't trust them either.

The only thing I disagree with is the statement that the US is in a double dip recession.

The reality is the US has been in the same recession. Just because the stock market rose many people think the economy got out of a recession. The stock market always precedes the economy. The US is still in the same recession. I know, there is the 'technical' indicator of GDP shrinking, but the reality is, job creation has been flat or negative the entire time.

We are going to start feeling their pain much more as it goes on. Our economy is far too dependent on theirs to escape the pain.
