Christy Clark, Bruce Clark, Criminal Intent

I am still trying to get my head around this amazing revelation, we .....No, not me, BC Mary and Bill Tieleman wrote years ago about the players, the insiders, the warrants, every leak that  comes out confirms everything that Ross K wrote about this case, what  Tieleman,  what BC Mary, what Robin Mathews wrote, I wrote a little, no where near the volumes by the others....

They were called whackos, internet spooks, conspiracy theorists, the looney bloggers, or what did Vaughn Palmer call us.."Boggers"....Well folks, those bloggers nailed another one, a big fat corrupt rail sale orchestrated by Gordon Campbell and a big red Liberal party, yes friends party, as in plural.
Even though we know most of the story, the tentacles, the connections, intertwined greedy fingers working in tandem, working the room, a game of money for service, money for access, money for favour, the people involved, two people vying to be the next dictator of our Province, two people who are hiding behind privilege and process, a corrupt process and the privilege of protection from the highest chairs.

I am not going to try and unravel very much right now, it`s 12:00 AM and I`m still trying to recover from last night`s moondance, but for now, let me lay out a small bit of the picture involving Christy Clark, Bruce Clark and Mike De Jong.

Here is what we know, even before the election in 2001, Eric  Bornman, Basi, Virk, Bruce Clark were already engaging in political favours for compensation,  right after the 2001 election folks,  Bruce Clark....Basi...Virk...Eric Bornman  started talking about forming a lobbying company, before we go much further, who brought Bruce Clark into the back rooms of Government, who would have had clout, no other than Christy Clark, a member of the opposition Liberals, until 2001 when Christy was part of Goverment, now according to testimony from Eric Bornman, he started paying Basi bribes immediately after the election for favours, information and access, this was a whole year before the BC Rail sale bribes,,,,,,A whole year folks, let`s slow it down here, before the 2001 election, Basi/Virk/Bruce Clark/ Eric Bornman talked of forming  a lobbying/communications company.....Bribes were already flowing,  the 2001 election comes and goes, a huge BC Liberal majority and the floodgates open, the trough over flowith with riches from the commons, and for access, for favour, for money you get it all, information, the inside track,.....Eric Bornman doesn`t divulge what he and Bruce Clark were lobbying Dave Basi for during this pre-BC Rail sale period, the obvious answer was the  BC Rail port subdivision,  Bruce Clark was a consultant to the Washington Marine group.....

So what we know, Bornman claims he bribed Dave Basi countless times, a forensic accounting audit was done, they concluded Basi had nearly $1 million dollars he couldn`t account for, Basi`s lawyer beat that number down to over a $hundred thousand, I imagine the lawyer claimed Basi spent nothing, saved everything and was gifted, never the less, it`s clear the David Basi  received a fortune in bribes, .....Let`s stop here, we already know from this testimony that Mike De Jong has lied to us, not once did Mike De Jong tell us that Basi and Virk were taking bribes not only on BC Rail but other items, like fast ferries, on land, waterfront property, docks, contracts, who knows the extent of what other secrets were sold, the trial was stopped, according to Mike De Jong there wasn`t anything else to learn, but that`s not true, the bribes started before the BC Rail was offered up for bids, so what other secrets were sold....

When they raided the BC Legislature they also raided Christy Clark`s Brother..Bruce Clark`s home where they found confidential information on the sale of the BC Rail Port subdivision, full stop right there......Bruce Clark had in his possession top secret confidential information, Basi and Virk admitted to providing Bruce Clark with confidential information, we also know that Basi and Virk didn`t give anything away for free....


In other words, when Christy Clark was education minister and deputy premier her brother Bruce Clark was paying bribes to Basi and Virk for confidential information, ......Let`s go back a little, are we to believe that Bruce Clark got caught on his first top secret document he received through cash bribes? We already know that Eric Bornman was bribing Basi for over a year before BC Rail went to a bid process, how many other top secret documents did Bruce Clark buy, did Christy Clark provide any top secret documents to her brother........Eric Bornman, a partner of Brian Kieran of the lobbying firm Pilothouse, a lobby group paying cash bribes to Basi and Virk, for years, not just once but years and years of Eric Bornman and pilothouse paying bribes to Basi and Virk and Christy Clark`s brother Bruce Clark is in on the action...

And Mike De Jong stood up and told every British Columbia citizen there there was nothing more to learn from the trial, 1 1/2 witnesses out of a scheduled 40 witnesses and this is revealed, the admission of bribes going back years and years.....Mike De Jong has clearly lied and breached his oath of office, anything short of his resignation is a disgrace, $7 million dollars of defence legal fees, another $20 plus million for the prosecution legal fees, 1 1/2 witnesses out of 40.....And look how much information we got from a couple of pieces of paper.....And Mike De Jong and Gordon Campbell stood up and said there is nothing more to learn, we know that Basi and Virk were taking bribes from Bruce Clark, Eric Bornman, how many more, surely no one believes those were the only ones paying bribes.

And can anyone tell me how Brian Kieran, friend of Bruce Clark, partner of Eric Bornman, ended up with a weekly CKNW radio segment on the Christy Clark show, what are the odds that Christy Clark didn`t have relations with Brian Kieran at least on a friendship basis, was this Brian Kieran`s reward for silence?

And there`s more, what piece of the action did Bruce Clark get, he was a consultant/ lobbyist for Washington marine group, not only did the Washington marine get the fast cat ferries for less than scrap metal price they also received docks, land and waterfront property on the north shore of Vancouver Harbour, the land alone is worth more than what they paid for everything.....Was that Washington marine group`s reward, was that to buy silence from Bruce Clark.......Washington marine group sold the fast ferries in 2009 just before the last election to Abu Dhabi Mar, A rich Arab company, neither Washington marine group or Abu Dhabi Mar has divulged what they were sold for, rumour and tips have told me the sale price was $270 million dollars for the sale, why has Washington marine Group refused to divulge what they sold them for, there is no reason for the silence unless .....Unless you bought three fast ferries, waterfront land, dock all for $19 million dollars and sold the boats alone for $270 million dollars! 

So here we go folks, full circle, Christy Clark voted to keep BC Ferries sheilded from freedom of information, she was there for the debenture and sale of BC Ferries, her brother Bruce Clark is a lobbyist fot the Washington marine group(WMG), her brother Bruce Clark was paying bribes to Basi and Virk for confidential information, WMG ultimately ends up owning waterfront land, three ferries that they sold for a small fortune, cue to Christy Clark lying on the radio about BC Feries making $500 million dollars in annual profits under the excellent guidance of the $million dollar man David Hahn......

Excuse me, and Christy Clark claims she has nothing to do with BC Rail scandal, Christy left Government at the same time all this crap was going down, she used the excuse that it was because of her young son, but she immediately attempted to run for Mayor of Vancouver, she lost the nomination....Bring on her CKNW radio gig....A job that Patrick Kinsella(Gordon Campbell`s campaign manager) placed her in, .....

 I have listened to her show for years, I can tell that the day they announced the trial was over Christy Clark on air was literally giddy with excitement, like a load had been lifted, shortly thereafter Brian Kieran had his weekly radio spot with Christy and a few months later Christy Clark wants to be premier but flatly refuses to hold a public inquiry into BC Rail corruption trial.

And all I can say is....You are finished Christy Clark, Mike De Jong, you must resign, a public inquiry must be called, you lied about the details, bribes came from many people over a period of years and years....Mike De Jong, you are finished, leadership will never come your way and if you were honourable you would do the right thing and resign today!

This is just a small piece of the big puzzle, we started with 5 potential BC Liberal Leaders and we are down to  3...Make that 2 leaders left.....George Abbott, Kevin Falcon, and I have plenty of dirt on both of those rat packers.

Sorry floks. I hope the above story makes sense or at least adds to the BC Rail quilt, I will leave the rest for others, I still have my eye on the prize.

Lastly, neither of those candidates, Mike De Jong, Christy Clark, they can`t be premier, they have more skeltons, more cronyism, they both have been bought and sold like cattle, they would be as bad, maybe even worse than Gordon Campbell.

 "What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive"

 Bring on the BC Rail public inquiry

Gordon Campbell ran one of the largest ponzi schemes ever, where bribes, payoffs and massive profits for the rich were guaranteed.

Clark must resign from the Premier's race now! She is tainted and not just by a whiff of scandal, but a deluge of scandal.

And what now, she has direct connections to the Prime Minister's office, who is now getting very shaky in his support of her.

Incestuous, corrupt, evil - the entire ruling classes of Canada! How long until we submerge into the vile underworld of totalitarianism dictatorship?

"Unless you bought three fast ferries, waterfront land, dock all for $19 million dollars and sold the boats alone for $270 million dollars!"...and wanted to keep the fact that the boats were really worth a fortune. Not as you had continually reminded the people that they weren't worth scrap. And further didn't want the masses to know that you had given them away as a consolation prize.

Grant, it looks like not only will Cluck Cluck be gone from the race by the weekend but the rest of the rat pack will also need to resign in short order due to the new revelations in the BC Rail fiasco/swindle.

The only one left standing will be Moira Stilwell. Moira WHO? The LIEberal leadership race looks like its turning into a massive embarrassment, which will finish them off once and for all. lol

And where were or where are all the MSM when all of the corruption and deceit was and is being dispensed onto the citizens of BC? You know the old joke. What's 12 inches long and hangs between Gordon Campbell's legs? The MSM's necktie!

These crooks and liars are finished in BC! Too bad the people were so stupid that they gave them nearly 10 years to carry out their thieving ways.

Grant - fantastic write up today, just what I need, what people knew all along, but could not nail it together - just like you have in plain and simple understanding for those who are NOT so into politics, but still want to be in the know.

Keep up the good work - the people of B.C. need to know and e-mails are flying fast these days.
A BIG THANK YOU!!

I just paid $180 dollars in HST on a car repair bill yesterday. Bill Good can spin all he wants. We can't afford the HST!

Great stuff! Keep up the good work! I'm loving all the dirt being dug up on the LIEberal thugs. Every damn one of them from Scampbell on down needs to be brought up on criminal charges and jailed. I'm laughing my ass off at Christy and the rest of the "leadership" candidates. I hope they are all squirming and wondering why on earth they decided to run. Oh and Bill Good and the rest of the msm LIEberal ass kissers, are you starting to feel used and abused yet? If not I'm sure you soon will be.

How come Bill Good isn't running for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party? He by far expounds their geatness.

It was proven in the 1950s that BC voters are almost completely insensitive to corruption issues, as long as they think the governing party is the best deal for them financially. Don't count on any of this stuff influencing an election result.

Harper supports Campbell. Craig James does Campbell's dirty work for him. So does the RCMP, terrorizing an elderly lady in her eighties and others, so they won't sign the recall. Hochstein of the ICBA, and Campbell have a very close relationship. Hochstein has $2.235 trillion pledged and bragged about, for the fight to keep the HST. Even with the roof coming off, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR, he is still using his dirty tactics. Staging a scene at one of canvassers location, was so pathetically seen through, especially when Ida Chong was seen across the street, watching the asinine performance. It has also been said, Campbell will be sticking around, as an adviser. De Jongs blatant cover up, regarding Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR. Christy Clarks involvement in, the corrupt sale of the BCR. Why was there not a blanket recall, to drive this ugly, evil party right out of our province? How much more crap and b.s. are we citizens going to have to contend with? Blanket recall after x-mas, please.

Sadly you would have still paid the same amount of tax under the old GST plus PST system. Labour and parts incurred from auto repair shops was subject to both the PST and GST before the HST was foisted on us. I am not a proponent of the HST in anyway shape or form, but we can only argue against this regressive tax by exposing the extra things being taxed. Actually, your comment does seem to indicate that there are still a lot of people that have very little understanding of the HST and its implications to them. Although you are paying more in sales taxes with the HST on many things than you paid under the old GST/PST regime, it does nothing to highlight opposition based on incorrect information. All it does is give ammunition to the proponents of the HST by letting them basing their arguments on the fact that a majority of us are misinformed about its impact on our pocketbooks.

Grant, it is as clear as can be that we must have a judicial inquiry on the sale, or 50 generation lease, of BC Rail. This will not happen as long as the BC Liberal Party holds power, no matter who takes over from Campbell. The thing is that the feud between you and AGT may be counter productive. You have the information that you have brought forward, and AGT has, through his contacts, gained access to documents that seem to show that not only were many cabinet ministers playing fast and loose their handling of the citizens assets, but so were many of those that lurk behind the scenes, politically speaking. As I see it, the more information brought forward by whomever can supply it can do nothing but increase the pressure on government to capitulate. There are times when one must put one's personal pride on the back-burner for the greater good. In my opinion, this is one of those times. I know that you did not bring the issue up on this particular article, but you did make a comment on a Tyee article under the handle of Tommy Gun that may have been detrimental to the cause. If AGT is producing information that is not legitimate, then he will ultimately have to face the consequences, as will you if what you publish is considered libelous. The fact that both you and he are still producing articles, and your names are not appearing in court documents as defendants, leads me to believe that you are both serving up legitimate information.

It's time that the Gordon Campbell reign of dishonesty was exposed to each and every British Columbian. I believe that we are finally on the right track, and if the fallout exposes those that are vying for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party, so much the better. It's time the people of BC really come to understand how poorly served they have been by Campbell & Co.

Our BC Rail is like a murder victim with the criminals responsible always looking for a new hiding place for the body. This stinks to high heaven, no matter which rug they try to put it under!

Grant, the 'World's Most Accurate Pollster', SCE Robbins, just came out with another poll showing that Cluck Cluck has now fallen over a cliff with the BC Rail scandal:

"Would you like to see Christy Clark become Premier of British Columbia?
Yes 6 %"

http://www.robbinssceresearch.com/polls/poll_758.html

6%? lol - Even Scampbell had a higher 9% rating. lol

Elwood...Christy Clark is history, many thanks too all of you for spreading the word.

The latest document dump has cooked her goose...We won`t be hearing anymore Cluck Cluck Clucking from that rubber goose.

There is always so much talk about politicians and how getting the right one in office will change things for the better. Well, I am not so sure about that, I would prefer to see a change in the citizens before I see a change in politics. The mentality of complacency held by society when it comes to the human condition in my opinion is much more important to change than politicians. Throughout life people have been used to fill the needs of the violent, the greedy and power hungry. When are people going to stand up for what is right, just like there are natural laws that govern nature so are there natural ethics, morals or whatever you want to call our condition that governs peoples existence. Peole know what is right and what is wrong but yet it is acceptable for corruption and self-denial to exist at our expense while a few prosper beyond belief. We as a society needs to change not the politicians, because politicians/politics is nothing more than a living breathing person/concept. Change the people not the politican and life will get better for all, it could not hurt.

The BC Rail Scandal is just one of many "sores" on the " body" of British Columbia (IPP's,shadow tolls,log exports,bank taxes, just to name a few) perpetrated by the Liberal Crime Family. Underneath these sores you will find rotten flesh and as with any rotten flesh it is always full of maggots.What we need is a skillful surgeon (full public inquiry into all past actions of the Liberal Government) to remove the rotten flesh and maggots and hopefully the patient can be saved, if the patient's condition isn't already terminal.

James B said...

I agree with Cam, Grant. You and AGT(and others, of course) are working for truth and justice.Very inspiring. We all will be happy when these things are restored, and these crimes are seen for what they are....even by those in charge of upholding the laws of the land(and not just changing them)

Will anyone cover Barinder Sall's next court appearance scheduled for December 20, 2010 at 9:00 am in Room 307. The wheels of justice grind pretty slowly here. Perhaps Craig James will show up as a character witness.
