Christy Clark To Run In Fraserview?

Well here we go, the era of change, that makes me laugh, hasn`t every politician from Harper to Bush to Obama, everyone promised change but no one has delivered anything but deja vu and more of the same, the Cluck Cluck era will be no different.

I listened to the pundits all day, Smyth, Good, Holman, Hocstein, Finlayson, Schrek, Teileman and the rest of the usual suspects, but you know what, not one pundit mentioned that Christy Clark barely beat the second, maybe third most hated person in the Province, Clark barely beat a disgusting little dweeb with a bad hair cut, a twirpy little Gordon Campbell mouthpiece who was front and center in a brutal Government whose leader was thrown to the wolves, this victory, the spin and rabble from the chit chatters, boy have they missed the mark, inside the numbers, the longer the campaign went on the smaller Mz Clark`s lead became, in other words friends, Clark started out as the people`s little barbie, our darling Christy but as more time went by and more people heard her gaffes and flip flops and witnessed her hostility....

Christy Clark`s popularity was already starting to wane, if the contest had lasted one more week Falcon would have won, Clark peaked and waned, that bodes well for the NDP, it amazes me, the talking heads babbled on and on  about the widespread support Christy has, she barely beat Kevin Falcon, she won by a whisker over a man even BC Liberals hate....

The era of change, there will be no family day holiday, big business have already killed that one, STRIKE 1...As Christy picks her cabinet, remember folks, BC has the largest cabinet in the universe, how many ministers are there, 40?....Somewhere around 25 ministers, Leckstrom and Bennett are out, Sultan is retiring, so there is 25 ministers and 40 MLAs to choose from, every current cabinet minster will remain, although Von Dongen and Bill Bennett are definately out as cabinet ministers, Kreuger will be stripped of his ministership...

If you didnt hear it already, Von Dongen talked of resigning if Christy won, and Randy White (BC Conservatives) on Sean Holman`s Sunday radio show told the listeners that Bill Bennett told him in person just last week that if Christy Clark won he was joining the BC Conservative party...Are Von Dongen and Bill Bennett going to keep to their word or flip flop, both Bill Bennett and Von Dongen so far have flip flopped and kissed up to Christy Clark.....Cue up Holman`s replay of his Sunday show and catch racist Bill Bennett flip flopping like a large mouth bass on the end of a hook!

Hansen, Abbott, Falcon, De Jong, Bond and Bell, McDiarmid, Stiwell, Penner, every Cabinet minister will remain in place or perhaps a minor little shuffle, none of the top guns in the party will lose out, none will be demoted from being a cabinet minister so how much change can there really be?

Christy Clark has already flopped and lost on the stat holiday, she will be campaigning for the HST, she won`t change the education or health file, she has already spoke in favour of the massive BC Hydro rate increases, ferries rates too....Where is the change?

I was listening very carefully today folks, Gordon Campbell was doing a photo-op, the opening up of a Autistic center, Campbell spoke to the press or should I say the press asked of Campbell if he was giving up his seat for Christy Clark and his response was rather puzzling which got me thinking and fretting, Gordon Campbell said that  

he would consider giving up his seat if that`s what she wanted, Christy can come and talk to me when she`s ready 

I got the distinct impression that Gordon Campbell doesn`t want to leave, I heard something about he needs to stay until at least May 2011 to receive a full pension however I have also heard Campbell say that he wanted to serve out the remainder of his term representing the people of Point Grey which brings up the distinct possibility of Gordon Campbell not going anywhere until 2013, I don`t believe Harper is in a big rush to hire Campbell, Gordo is toxic right now, maybe in time, so who is the premier, Christy Clark and Patrick Kinsella or Gordon Campbell and Patrick Kinsella, think of the optics, Campbell stays on keeping his eye on premier Clark from within....Like I said, Gordon Campbell didn`t say he was resigning his seat, what he said was that if Christy WANTED HIS SEAT HE WOULD STEP ASIDE....Campbell didn`t say he was resigning at all today.

Wouldn`t you announce your last day if you were premier, Campbell left the door open to stay on as MLA.

So where does Christy run, outside of Ralph Sultan resigning his North shore riding, unless, unless the buzz I heard from a couple of insiders is true....

The BC Liberals are a party still in tatters, the Kash Heed affair is toxic, there is no clean out with Kash Heed unless he falls on his sword, at present Kash Heed is hiding behind the BC Supreme court, they will eventually rule against Kash , the BC supreme court and or the BC appeals court has no authority to overrule Elections BC...So, what we have is this, Christy Clark, the last thing she needs as premier is a defiant Kash Heed hiding behind the courts embroiled in election fraud all while Clark campaigned on a theme of CHANGE and OPEN GOVERNMENT...

So the buzz from a couple of insiders is that Kash Heed is being pressured to fall on his sword and resign his seat, that friends does two things, it opens up a seat for Christy Clark and it removes the Kash Heed stench, it makes perfect sense, the last thing Clark needs is two bi-elections being run at the same time, her running in Point Grey and Someone running in place of the disgraced Kash Heed, the optics aren`t good....

With Kash Heed being forced out Campbell stays on, the Legislature won`t likely open until late spring, we don`t have fall sessions, heck we don`t even have spring sessions, Campbell could theoretically stay on for the entirety of his term and never be seen, yes friends the scenario exists, I go back to Campbell saying when he resigned he was serving out his term in Point Grey....Oh indeed, Campbell needs to make sure Christy Clark doesn`t spill the beans on the BC books, a caretaker Premier with no mandate but with Campbell lurking in the shadows making sure that the future is about anything but change.

So that`s the buzz friends, Gordon Campbell stays and Kash Heed falls on his sword and resigns in disgrace, that my friends kills two birds with one stone.

5000 of the nearly 7000 rejected memberships came from the Christy Clark Campaign Team.

Strange days indeed, I can`t help but feel very dirty this morning, we go from hated Government to illegal Government with no mandate from the people....

Before I get rolling here let`s do a little math....There were 30,000 BC Liberal members before the leadership contest, the Liberal camps claimed to have signed up 60,000 new members bringing the grand total to 90,000 members yet a mere 53,000 people voted.

Christy Clark has no mandate to Govern period, there were almost 7000 rejected memberships, that`s right folks, The BC Liberal party 2 days before the leadership vote announced quietly that over 6000 new memberships were rejected, how many soiled new memberships were missed? We also know that hundreds of people received BC Liberal memberships and pin numbers who didn`t pay or even apply to join the BC Liberal party, ....And we had a huge mailout problems with the PIN numbers, thousands of people who did join the BC Liberals didn`t receive their PIN numbers at all......We had cats signed up as new members, hockey teams that were signed illegally, we had complaints from the other BC Liberal leader camps that Christy Clark campaign team photocopied complete membership books...

Nearly 15% of the new memberships were fraud, did they really weed them all out, and...53 thousand odd votes, roughly 60% of total members voted, so what we have is.....52% of 53,000 voters elected a premier, a vote where at 7000 fake memberships were initially put forward, memberships that required $60,000.00 dollars minimum of accompanying cash.....That tells me that whether successful or not, there was a concentrated effort at membership fraud, so consider this, we now may have a premier running this Province whose campaign team engaged in membership fraud!....And, if Christy Clark won with a 70% total, even 60%, but at 52%...170 votes more votes for Falcon and he would be premier, how did the PIN numbers get lost in Canada post?...How many rural voters said the heck with voting?....If even 1100 voters were disenfranchised that would be enough to change the results,  1100 voters is 2% of the total vote.....But even more so in the rural area`s......

Because, with the weighted voting system, if in a Surrey riding there was 5000 votes, that riding is worth only 100 points, if in that riding there were 100 disenfranchised voters that accounts for but 2% or..2 points in that riding....But in a rural smaller riding, the rural riding might only have 500 members, if 100 votes were disenfranchised from a small riding that represents 10% or 10 points....There were only 54,000 thousands votes cast, there are 85 ridings, that means on a per average breakdown, there was less than 1000 voters per riding, ....85 ridings  X  1000 voters = 85,000 votes, there was only 54,000 votes....So when you break it down it didn`t need more that a few votes in the rurals to go astray to change the entire outcome.

My sister who works in Surrey at a business, my sister works and runs one of those CDI type education places, on Friday past, Christy Clark`s campaign team came to their large office building and terrorized the staff, they were Gestapo like in their pursuit of up new members, dogging every employee to vote for Christy,  my Sister had to threaten to call the police to get the Clark campaign team out of their office building, my sister also said to me that some of the staff gave Christy Clark`s campaign team their email addresses at work and on Saturday, the day of the leaders vote the employees at my Sister`s work place received hundreds of Emails that Saturday, non-stop emailing until my sister and the staff called the Clark campaign, emailed the Clark campaign and demanded that the email barrage be stopped!

Let me remind you folks, Gordon Campbell didn`t leave Government because he was tired and served out his time, Gordon Campbell was thrown out of Government by his own party, the party was hated for lying, cheating and stealing from the commons, Gordon Campbell was/is the most unpopular leader in a very unpopular Government and even with that, even with that...

George Abbott(bobblehead) nothing but a wet noodle, De Jong, the most incompetent Attorney General in BC History, and we have Kevin mini me Falcon, the Campbell clone, a nasty bile little man that is so hated that even BC Liberal voters hate Kevin Falcon, of all the polling done...Every poll showed that the public hated Falcon and he would be the biggest loser against the NDP.....

So what we have is a hated Government in the BC Liberals, we have Gordon Campbell who was ousted from office by his own party, thrown out, get lost, don`t come back, a despised Gordon Campbell, a despised Kevin Falcon, the public hates Colin liar Hansen, De Jong is a Attorney General buffoon, Abbott is a useless slug and we have the liar Christy cluck cluck Clark and......

And of a field of hated losers Christy Clark barely beat the second most hated man in BC Keven Falcon...Christy Clark got 52% of the vote to Falcon`s 48% of the vote.....A mere 170 more points and Falcon would be premier, a BC Liberal leader needed to garner 60% to 70% to have even the slightest mandate, at 52% Christy Clark has NO MANDATE! PERIOD!

7000 rejected illegal memberships, the vast majority of the rejected new BC Liberal memberships came from the Christy Clark camp, PIN number mail out was botched, hundreds who didn`t even register with the Liberals ended up with paid memberships and PIN numbers.

So here I was watching both Global TV and listening to CKNW......And boy oh boy were the evening events about to heat up...

On CKNW 5 minutes before the first vote result(roughly 6:00pm)....CKNW interviewed Kevin Kreuger, earlier that day Kevin Kreuger resigned as caucus whip, the reason he resigned was so he could endorse George Abbott and Kevin Falcon....It was amazing, Kevin Kreuger said, 5 minutes before the first ballot result said....

"Christy Clark came to us MLAs and asked for support, we told her we don`t support you, we don`t want you as premier or leader, we as MLAs rejected Christy Clark for leader, that`s why she has no caucus support"


Another interesting moment was with Vaughn the pawn Palmer....About 10 minutes before the first ballot results Palmer said ....

"According to the Christy Clark camp  they are well north of 40% and have it in the bag in the first round"

And when the first ballot results came out Vaughn Palmer said....

"Christy Clark`s camp has been over-selling her popularity all week it seems" snip

Repeat a lie often enough until the lie becomes real, for weeks the Clark camp has been lying about her popularity,  as you can see, the Christy Clark camp used Gestapo type tactics, thousands of fake memberships, lied about her popularity and even with that, she barely beat the second most hated BC Liberal in BC History Kevin Falcon...


That folks is why Christy Clark has no-mandate to be premier, a snap election must be called!


Lastly folks, we all know that Christy Clark is not very smart, she`s mouthy, combative, a compulsive liar, a cheater and a quitter and those are her good qualities, I expected Christy Clark to cheat, she comes form the arm of the Federal Liberals who stole money for sponsorship, Clark was trained in the art of Deception by her brother Bruce Clark...I expected what Clark did,she cheated enough to beat the hated Falcon....Let me be clear, it didn`t matter who won among these four candidates because, we all lose with any BC Lying Liberal..

But what really angers me, the media, the media decided early on that THEY wanted Christy clark as leader of the BC Liberals...The Vancouver Sun, Global news, CTV news, they ignored BC Rail, not one of them reported the story about the 7000 rejected memberships, not an efffing one....They ignored the smoking gun proof I had on Clark lying on her radio show, Alex G Tsakumis threw everything at Christy Clark but the kitchen sink, in fact rumour has it AGT was about to buy a sink to throw at her, the point I am making, the media, CKNW, Global,CTV, Bill Good, Pamela Martin, those are the real enemies, corporate media, they wanted Christy, they ignored the dirt and mud and failed to report critically, pandering coverage, rock star treatment with next to nothing in criticism, a pathetic and dishonest display.

So all in all....I feel Good, really good, Christy Clark will destroy the BC Liberal coalition, and if you don`t believe me, cue-up the CKNW audio vault(about 6:00 pm Saturday February 26th) and listen to what Kevin Kreuger said about Clark...Listen To Kevin Kreuger tell Christy Clark that there isn`t one BC Liberal MLA who wants her as boss or leader...

As a regular citizen, the BC Rail scandal lingered for years, hydro rates are now skyrocketing as predicted by Rafe and others, lowest minimum wage, stealth taxes, HST, tolls coming on line, ferry rates to double or more and in the last election the BC Liberals lied about a $4 billion dollar deficit, they lied about the HST, they lied about the reason they adopted the HST, Hansen and Campbell claimed they need the $1.6 billion bribe from Ottawa to avoid bigger deficits or cuts, their entire platform was a lie, the deficit wasn`t $495 million dollars maximum, it was $4 billion dollars after the election, this year they scoop nearly $1 billion dollars from ICBC reserve money, your money! And their still running deficits yet there is talk about the new Premier having a $1 billion dollar slush fund for which she use for either tax cuts or treats for the public!!!!!

When will the deception ever end, we were told that we need the $1.6 billion dollar one time chunk of transition cash to save the Province from deep hurtful cuts and here we are a year later with ICBC a little lighter in the wallet and new found $ billions for the new leader to spend....All while the BC DEBT is set to rise to $60 billion by 2013.

The lies covering their cover lies are getting so convoluted, maybe I am wrong, maybe the public are so dumb, walking around in a daze, the media, the Liberals, they rip you off and 2 months later, 6 months later who cares, blatant corruption if not crime stares the people in the face and no one cares, the HST referendum will come and go and the HST will still be here there is nothing binding, the lies will continue, for me friends, I feel as if ever since the last election there has been no Government for the citizens, only corporate Government, the deficit lie, the HST lie, the debt lie, Kash Heed hiding in the courts, a mockery BC Rail trial, a sick legal pay off, theft and rewards, the scoundrels get our railway and lawyers get rich, now a new leader chosen under a cloud of membership fraud during the term of a deposed hated now ousted Gordon Campbell, 52% of 53,000 people elected a premier and the stench just gets riper and riper.

This is going to be really fun and scary trying to bring down Christy Clark and the lying Liberals, although I suspect the party will/may disintegrate on its own.

The BC Liberal Swindle Party

The word out of the BC Liberal camp this morning, over 6000 new membership sign ups have been tossed out.

Let`s do a little math, before the BC Liberal leadership contest there were about 30,000 members of the Liberal party, after the mass sign up game the member total rose to 90,000 total members in the party....Christy Clark yesterday claimed her internal polling numbers put her north of 40%.

Lets do the math, 60,000 new members, 6000 plus new memberships tossed out, that my friends means that over 10% of the sign ups are phony, rigged, fake, so what we have is....1000s of NDP voters have joined the BC Liberals, the environmentalists that joined the party thinking they could sway the BC Liberals through blackmail, they are rumoured to be on the 10,000 range, a sophisticated far reaching campaign, those 12,000 memberships aren`t tho one`s being tossed out, ....Let`s run through that again, there was 60,000 new memberships, the 10,000  environmentalists plus  2000 NDPers who registered with the BC Liberals are legitimate new members....So subtract 12,000 members from 60,000 new members leaves 48,000 new members.........Now subtract 6000 tainted memberships that SOMEONE signed up from the remaining  48,000 new memberships...That leaves 42,000 new members, it also changes all the math from the Clark Campaign!

So Christy Clark, how many of these fake memberships did you poll?...How many of the NDPers who signed up for Liberal memberships did you poll? How many environmentalists did you poll and what answer did they give to your tea?....Can you believe their responses? remember folks, normally it`s only the politically active who join parties, in other words...If I was polled I wouldn`t tell them my true intentions, not if I joined for trouble making purposes.

What I don`t know is which camp had the most memberships tossed out, according to the press release, the rejected memberships came from the mass sign ups from the front runners, that means Christy Clark and Falcon.

So as for the polling Christy did, with 10% of the votes tossed out changes the dynamic of this weekend`s race.

I will leave you with this, I heard a Mr. Love who is running De Jong`s campaign say that fraud during the leadership campaign wouldn`t occur, he claimed that with 60,000 new members a few dozen phony memberships wouldn`t change the results, Mr. Love claimed it would take a real concentrated effort to cheat your way to victory...Well..

With over 6000 new members means but one thing, it means there was blatant illegal sign ups happening on a grand scale, 1 in every 10 new members to the BC Liberal party are fakes...How many more fakes are out there, that is a huge number, we already heard about Christy Clark`s campaign volunteer who registered her cat, people around the Province have had Liberal membership cards show up in their mail box and they never even joined the party.

In light of this latest news release on fake memberships, how can we as a Province except any results, remember folks, the Liberal vote isn`t choosing just a leader but the Premier and head of this Province....Do any of you believe the BC Liberal party found all the fake memberships, they had barely over 1 week to check the status on 10s of thousands of new members, it`s obvious that membership fraud is very easily accomplished...In light of this revelation.

I as a citizen of British Columbia demand that after the BC Liberals elect their new leader that a general election be called, whoever takes over the party has no mandate, the leadership race with thousands of fake memberships can`t be allowed to stand, we as citizens will never know how legitimate the process was...

All we know for sure, the BC Liberal camps are corrupt and attempting to win the premiership through theft, that is apparent to all...

And as a side note, the Vander Zalm HST petition,  707,000 thousand people signed that petition, volunteers and real people, of over 700,000 signatures there was about 4000 signatures rejected,  1/2 % were rejected, a tiny percentage of rejected signatures, yet the BC Liberal sign ups have well over 10% level of fraud!!!....And when the BC Liberal media and PAB heard about the rejected HST signatures on the HST petition the press blasted the story on the airwaves, we were called Taliban by Christy Clark, Clark and others made a big deal about the tiny percentage of unvalidated anti HST signatures but the BC Liberal sign up fraud, over 6000 rejected memberships, over 10% fraud perpetrated deliberately by BC Liberal campaign workers....Where is the media, not one word in the Vancouver sun or Province newspapers, nothing on Global or CTV news at 6:00pm either.

The silence on the BC Liberal membership fraud by the mainstream media is deafening!

I demand to know whose camp the phony memberships came from, I want to know if the phony memberships were evenly divided among the front runners or were 6000 plus phony memberships all from one campaign, we as BC voters need that information, for example, if Christy Clark wins the leadership contest but her campaign team had 5000 fake memberships, doesn`t the voting public have a right to know if the 6000 phony memberships came from one candidates team?.....Well....Christy Clark, Kevin Falcon or any candidate would have no mandate to be premier, PERIOD!

BC Liberals only cheat when they can`t win!

PS)...I contacted the BC Liberal party head of communications, they refuse to divulge which camp had thousands of fake memberships, I told the woman that the public has a right to know, this vote chooses a premier, I told her that we the public need to know if they came from one camp, if Kevin Falcon, De Jong  or Christy Clark`s team had over 6000 fake memberships we need to know, the BC Liberal party only had 10 days to validate these memberships, how many fakes got through?That information must be released before the Saturday vote...It goes to credibility and morals, can you imagine how the piblic will feel if say Falcon won and became premier and a short time later we found out that these fake memberships came from his campaign...Remember folks, even with a minimum donation to join, someone paid $60,000.00 dollars for these memberships.

Carrots and Sticks

Bloodshed, revolts, anarchy and chaos has erupted around the world, the peasants, the indigenous and plain old average folks are standing up and shouting We have had enough and we won`t take it anymore......

Flash points simultaneously around the world seemed to just erupt, this day in history has been brewing for decades and it`s my opinion that we are on the verge of world anger and conflict the likes that haven`t been seen since the mid 40s but these conflicts won`t be Nation state against Nation but Governments against their own peoples.....

Bear with me folks, this post, this story starts with Ronald Reagan and ends with ....Actually there is no ending yet...The Republican neo-con assault upon socialism and workers starts with Reagen, the trickle down affect, deregulate, look the other way, strip workers of rights and destroy unions all in the name of the corporation, at that time in history the standard of living was at it`s apex, I`m not talking about gadgets and fancy toys, back then a working man had a wife who stayed home and fed a basket full of kids, they had a car, a home, TV, radio, they take a holiday every year or two, one income, almost any job in North America at that time could deliver you that dream, home ownership and a decent life......CEO wages were about a ratio of 10 to 1 back then, now the wage difference is closer to a 100 to 1....Now in North America, in Canada regular folks need 2 incomes and no kids and a 30 year mortgage(or 40).

In Libya, in Egypt, in countries around the world Leaders, Rulers and Dictators have prospered for decades, extraordinary boom times have occurred, in the middle East prices have gone from a few dollars a barrel to over $150 a barrel a few years ago to roughly $80 dollars, now nearing the $100 dollar a barrel mark, for decades these leaders have promised jobs, security and wealth sharing and like everywhere in the world the wealth got concentrated in but a few pockets while the poor and impoverished population grew in numbers and percentage...The old trickle down affect, give large to the top of the food chain and eventually it will trickle down to the masses has not materialized anywhere...Even all the noise about China coming of age, hogwash, hundreds and hundreds of millions who live in poverty, but like everywhere the wealth gets concentrated into very few and mostly corporate hands..

In Mexico and all through Latin America stretching all the way down into South America, in Northern Mexico there are more than 10 murders per day, everyday, 365 days a year, 50,000 murders over the last three years, two days ago a bunch of people were slaughtered in Acapulco..What does drug killing and violence have to do with this story, simple answer, NAFTA...NAFTA promised Mexico and Latin America prosperity, jobs and a rising standard of living, what was promised and what was delivered are two different things, NAFTA created a disaster in Mexico, it drove down wages, protections and promises were broken,Corporate America took advantage of the situation, they used Mexican workers as slaves without benefits, corporate America used NAFTA and threats of leaving America to drive down benefits and wages in the homeland, Ronald Reagan, then Nafta...The assault on the workers and middle class has never stopped, meanwhile Government corruption swept Mexico and only bribes and corporate influence has sway with the Mexican rulers and since the people have no money the bribes and influence came from the corporation, thus the status quo betrayal of the masses continued, what hope do these Latin American young people have, a life of a peasant or the lure of easy money through gangs and drugs, Mexico is one of the wealthiest countries in the world with gold mines and petroleum and for decades the promises to the people every election, the new prosperity, the new hope are but empty words devoid of meaning, I don`t blame the young people for joining cartels and gangs in Latin America, after all , perhaps we all too will be in gangs fighting, fighting our Government for freedom and a future.

Just before the great recession of 2007...The markets around the world(except Japan) reach record highs, the Dow, TSX, China, markets are flush with cash, housing boom in the USA and Canada, easy credit, ...Oil jumps to $150 a barrel, the Arabs are rolling in money, Exxon Mobile is making $40 billion per quarter, the forecasters, the rating agencies, the over-see,ers , the watchdog and protection groups and Government itself, they all failed on their predictions......The markets crash, Wall Street guzzled the world, everybody but the few got ripped off, Governments around the world are told to pony up $trillions in cash or everything will fall apart at the seams and become even worse...

Meanwhile Americans who bought the phony dream, the promises of a service based economy while  the corporate world pulled up stakes, laid off workers who were making half decent wages and fled to the cheapest labour whore country they could find, year after year the outsourcing continued and Neocons and Fraser institutes, BC Liberals, Governments around the world for decades played the trickle down game on the people...However, the massive amounts of wealth accumulated in very few pockets and then.......

And then the markets crashed, $trillions of dollars to bail out the criminals, the whole world under threat if we didn`t pay the blackmail, the earth would open up and swallow us whole, Governments caved in to the threats from the best and the brightest criminals....In every corner of the world Governments gave the Players who screwed everyone a blank cheque....And now markets have recovered, record gold prices, oil prices spiking, S&P companies sitting on $trillions of cash and.....

And the recovery is a jobless recovery, no such animal in history has ever existed, it has been said over and over again since the end of the Great Depression in the 30s...There is no such thing as a jobless recovery, it can`t happen, the two go hand in hand, recovery and jobs, the corporate world can`t survive with a jobless recovery

That was true at one time, for now the money is so concentrated, in so few hands, with robot factories, slave labour countries, miniscule tax rates with the ability to rip-up pensions, renege on commitments to  retired workers, for now the corporate world can make a fortune with North America in the dumper.....

The Wall Street Corporate criminals get bailed out for $trillions of dollars and Governments everywhere tell their people that the benefits are gone, wages are going down, work longer, pay more, user fees, taxes, promises made  around the globe are broken, the public was betrayed and again, after this so-called last economic boom there are more people living in dank, dark poverty then ever before and if these leaders, Dictators, Czars, Prime Ministers and Premiers, even Corporate bosses think they can take take take more more more from Joe average who is drowning in debt while sitting in their ivory towers drinking Saki and counting their ill-gotten gains...Well..

No one is safe anymore, teachers in Wisconsin, teachers who make $32k per year are getting their benefits and bargaining power stripped away from them, 25 other states are proposing the same thing, take from average joe his pension, his benefits, his buying power, the people got screwed by Wall Street and world finance scams, the people bailed out the crooks, "no good dead goes unpunished" now it`s the people paying the price again!

Here in BC we have the highest child poverty, the largest personal debt loads in North America, the highest gas prices, the HST, hydro asking to raise prices by 60% over 3 years, MSP premiums up, user fees, property taxes, road tolls and the BC Liberals beat the drum about health care being unsustainable, education is woefully under funded, something has to give, wages have been flat ever since Ronald Reagan, buying power has never been lower, a frozen minimum wage, frozen middle class wages or cuts, no more company pensions, the game is..

The game is almost over, like monopoly, once one player has all the money and owns everything it`s time to pack it in, that`s capitalism....

Corporate greed has taken over Governments.....Let me finish with this...Two small business owners start out...One business owner works very hard and because of location and customer flow barely makes a living, he pays his employees and makes a modest living, the other business owner strikes it big, a a giant casino and transportation hub open up across the street from him and he has tremendous customer traffic...He/She makes a fortune....

Are either businesses a failure?....Absolutely not, the Corporate world doesn`t understand that sometimes it`s okay to run a business, pay your expenses, your employees and make a decent living, you don`t always have to make a killing, but Governments through threats and bribes have caved to the corporate world, you know what friends, I know we are right on this one, unless as a people we unite, in every corner of earth, the internet, citizen media, twitter, tweets, Iphones, cameras, Facebook and so much more, the peasants can`t be silenced anymore, students, terrorists, fathers and mothers, in the country, the mountains, on islands, in the damn desert, there is an encyclopedia, computer, social media,CNN, Google, there is access to every study, every voice, every dissenting point of view is at one`s fingertips and never again in history will the people of earth be left in the dark and starved of information while being force fed propaganda, the age of awakening is here....

Lastly, you remember our big fight with Tesako`s prosperity mine, imagine this, back when that area originally was accessed for ore, the price of gold was but a few dollars per ounce, the most profitable way to extract that ore (at that low price) and make any money was to avail themselves of Fish lake, a man made freebie tailings pond...Right where they need it, how convenient, environmental assessment after environmental assessment rejected the project over the proposed watershed destruction...continued past the next image...
_____________________________________________________________________________________________


OK Kootcoot, Gold wasn`t a few dollars but a few hundred dollars, never-the-less...Gold was but a couple of $hundred dollars.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
And along came Gordon Campbell and his look the other way policies, Tesako mines gave Campbell some cash to push the project through, thank goodness the Federal environmental branch hasn`t been corrupted like Campbell`s gang in BC....

Never the less, I wrote in one of my Fish lake posts that Gold was cheap when Prosperity mine was first proposed, but at $1200 to $1400 per ounce Tesako mine can make money at the Fish Lake site without destroying the watershed, isn`t that interesting, Tesako mine terrorized first nations people, they attacked environmentalists, they spent a fortune advertising and spinning, they brought people to tears and heartache, literally $millions have been spent fighting this project but Corporate greed.....

Remember the small business story I started with, the one business who pays his employees, expenses but only makes a modest living, the other business owner who had some luck makes a fortune, both enterprises are winners.

So let`s take two mines, company X makes $100 on every tonne of ore extracted....Company Y makes $30 dollars on every tonne of ore extracted, they are both winners and......

corporations need to be treated like teenagers, sometimes you must say no, I know every teenager thinks their right, so does every Corporation, like the teenager bitching for $20 dollars on a Friday night, if the teenager can`t get the $20 because you have only offered $10 dollars, trust me, the teenager will take the $10 dollars...

It has come to my attention that miraculously Tesako mine has figured out a way to extract the ore at the Fish Lake site without using Fish Lake and without harming the surrounding watershed, the story Tesako mine is saying that commodity prices are high enough to make money without all the destruction, Tesako mine has resubmitted the plan with the changes to The Federal and EA agencies....I can`t comment on the plan itself but what I can comment on is corporate greed....

If governments play hard ball, if corporations have to make a choice of making some money or none, they will choose the SOME MONEY option, Tesako mine is a perfect example, Tesako terrorized a people for years and caused all this strife because of what Gordon Campbell promised Tesako when the whole time the company had the ability to make money without the harm, and only until backed into a corner did the corporation concede and now will do it differently, perhaps we can get jobs without killing the environment, we, BCers, our new Government must play hard ball, the same goes with the salmon farmers, if their told to become self contained and land based or go away, the same thing will happen, some money is better than none.

I hope every Government pays attention to this reversal by Tesako, Corporations for too long have been giving us the stick while eating all the carrots.

Time for Change, Time for Corporate reform, both of environment and taxation, time to stop getting trickled on!

The Old Numbers Game

Here comes the Talking Heads, you know when I wrote that it dawned on me that perhaps, just perhaps that I too am a talking head, the pundits, profilers, predictors, Ipsos, Mustel, Nanos and others, the more these companies predict the more I`m convinced the one and only goal of polling companies is to supply data designed to incite more confirming polls, and propaganda, the last 2 BC Elections the pollsters had the BC Liberals with insurmountable leads, at least that`s what the pollsters want the public to believe, a foregone conclusion, in other words, if you are a NDP voter stay home...Yet the results despite Canwest Global and the media pimping the BC Liberals are very very close...In other words, pollsters are but party spokespeople, the numbers can be turned on their head with the flip of a switch, ....

Christy Clark was quick to the airways today with new internal polling numbers, coincidentally the poll numbers came out the same time she was being interviewed by Bill Good......According to Christy`s people she is north of 40% on first ballots, in other words Clark is letting it be known to the others that she is close to the big chair, with those numbers Clark wouldn`t need many second ballot votes to get over the top, but with the new 100 points for each riding makes predicting far from a science, however...

One thing I learned very early on was whether in business, sports, personal achievements, never get too cocky, when in the lead stay quiet and say nothing, you don`t want your star quarterback predicting a blowout of their opponent and for me, it looks bad when a politician like Christy blasts the airwaves with internal polling telling her competitors she is the anointed one, and also today, Mike De Jongs backers, Cheema and company made the airwaves by saying that De Jong supporters second preference on their ballot was going to George Abbott.....

One of our regular contributers sent me information about 1000s of Green voters who joined the BC Liberal party and apparently there was a sophisticated campaign ran by enviro  groups asking their members to join the BC Liberal party and vote for the greenest candidate who is against destroying Fish Lake and against the Enbridge pipeline, in other words an attempt at blackmail, I responded back to my friend that the Greenies were being silly if they think they can negotiate with the corporate BC Liberal party, even if a Liberal leader promised something green the chances of it coming to fruition is very slim and rumour has it BC Liberals tend to lie(snark).....

Before we move on, if Christy Clark had this big north of 40% lead over everyone(Even though she has no party or business support)....Why would her team crow and appear cocky?...Why indeed, why would Cheema who is Mike De Jong`s Asian power broker....A man who has signed up 1000s for De Jong...Why would he tell the press his second choice votes are going to Abbott?

Why tip your hand?...Why forecast your next move at all, unless, unless it`s a bluff, here`s the scenario...By De Jong`s backers claiming second choices are going to go to Abbott, where does the Falcon second choice ballots go, they certainly wouldn`t want them too going to Abbott....But with de Jong out after round 1....Who does Christy Clark`s second choice ballots go ?....If De Jong`s ballots go to Abbott...Falcon second ballots won`t go to Christy Clark, especially after Clark`s team announced their poll numbers...

So what we have is De Jong almost conceding he`s gone, the power behind De Jong made the airwaves claiming second choices are going Abbott.......Abbott voter`s second choice will not go to Christy Clark, again because of the bragging Cluck Cluck was doing today....So where do Abbott second choices go, with De Jong going out....Abbott`s second ballot choices will go to Falcon...But....If Cheema is lying?....If De Jong`s people are actually going to support Falcon with their second choice ballots?.... Abbots second choice ballots go Falcon too..And if  De Jong`s second choice ballot go Falcon too?....And if Christy Clark`s second choice ballots all go to De Jong(That`s a lot of second ballot votes).

Back to the numbers game, it`s rumoured the Green environmentalists signed up 10,000 members, 10,000 BC Liberal green voters, and I know for fact that 1000`s of NDPers have joined the BC Liberals....So as to the polling, we have 10,000 green voters and another several thousand NDPers who either have been polled and or asked who their voting for, but are their answers honest?

Who are the Green voters going to vote for, well every BC Liberal leader has shunned the enviros and promoted both Prosperity mine and Enbridge pipeline....The NDP stand on those issues is by far, A STARK DIFFERENCE...

So what we have are about 15,000 sabotage voters registered to the BC Liberal party all with a completely different motive than the remaining registered BC Liberals, my gut tells me that the Green voters and NDP voters whom joined the BC Liberal party will be voting for Falcon as first choice and Abbott on their second ballot.....And this has nothing to do with anything but strategy, Kevin Falcon, the man just brings out negative feelings, he would be the easiest for the NDP to beat, Falcon polls negative even among BC Liberal insiders...

The old numbers game, Christy Clark`s team erred today by revealing those numbers, self confident it was not, it came across cocky, 20% of the BC Liberal membership are not Liberal voters, their saboteurs, 1 in 5 votes will be strategic votes.

I`ll stick with my earlier assessment, I don`t believe Cheema and the De Jong team, my sources tell me those votes are going to Falcon....The ploy was designed to have Abbott second choices to go Falcon or De Jong....And where do Clark second choice ballots go?.....We could have a situation where De Jong gets all the second votes, Votes from the Clark team, Votes from the Abbott team, and Falcon, everyone might vote for De Jong for their second choice, with everyone not wanting to hurt their candidate`s chances could bring all the second choice ballots to the perceived weakest candidate of the 4.....

Now toss in 15,000 sabotage voters and anything goes.....My gut tells me the Cheema press release and the Clark press release are designed to intimidate others into defensive moves, don`t believe a word of it....

The main reason why I think Falcon will prevail, what big business wants, big business gets, Big Business wants Falcon....

Remember BC Liberals...."One in the hand is worth two in the bush"

The Next Premier of British Columbia

As much as it stresses me even thinking about it the fact is one of these four pictured above is going to be premier, well, maybe, Christy Cluck Cluck Clark would have to run in a bi-election(Point Grey, Fraserview, North Vancouver)..

Take a good look at that picture, let`s start right to left, Michael De Jong, lawyer, attorney general, solicitor general, could you imagine being in a fox hole or trench with him, most likely you would be pushing up daisies in short order, don`t get me wrong, I like Mike De Jong, picture him wearing a burger king crown flipping burgers, the speed or lack thereof displayed by De Jong to either make a decision or speak a sentence, the problem with Mike De Jong is...He is so worried about not saying or doing anything wrong that he neither does say or do anything intelligent.....The man is at best a career bureaucrat who should have never moved past middle management,

Kevin Falcon, the birdman of Cloverdale, his claim to fame was his total recall campaign he and the BC Liberals launched against the NDP...A mini Gordon Campbell?...No, not at all, in fact I think Falcon would make the best premier of these four candidates, Brian Day and private health care will celebrate, road builders and casino operators will jump for joy...... Falcon isn`t very smart or tricky, he is quite unintelligent but secretly sly, What I mean by that is Falcon is a good listener, a copycat, he watched Gordon Campbell operate and learned, but what he learned was....Big business is his master, the BC Liberals never ever called the shots in this Province, Gordon Campbell was run by Teck Cominco and General Electric, those companies are the BC Liberals and as such, they are the premiers of BC....Falcon will be a Campbell clone, a puppet to big business, a status quo premier, Kevin Falcon will answer to the same corporate masters, that does sound like a Gordon Campbell, but....But there is a difference, as much as I dislike Falcon I believe Falcon is more honest than Campbell, his marriage isn`t a sham, he loves his wife and child, where as Campbell was a life-long adulter, an habitual liar and drug abuser...There is the slimmest of chances that Falcon looks in his baby`s eyes and actually Governs for the future of children, I have my doubts, Gordon Campbell never loved anything more than himself!

George Bobblehead Abbott, a career Yes man, I watched George Abbott lie in the legislature for years, the 5000 acute long term care beds promised in 2001 that have never been delivered, instead new language was created to  give wiggle room to George Abbott and the BC Liberals, 5000 acute care beds promised were slowly turned into...5000 assisted living and incremental care beds, ...BC Liberal language meaning gobbily goop, George looked nurses in the face and repeated the nonsensical BC Liberal bed language, .....

George Abbott never once fought for seniors or children or anything in his term as health minister, all he did was explain health cuts using new BC Liberal language....Can anyone tell me what an "Incremental care bed" is?

It surprises me that people and media call Bobblehead the uniter, the middle-of the-road candidate...Nothing could be further from the truth, Abbott is one of the most partisan Liberals out there, he`s a prolific liar, the truth be known, the only thing I respect Abbott for was when he told Gordon Campbell off in a cabinet meeting, Abbott  as health minister was giving a briefing, apparently Gordon Campbell butt in and started talking over George who was giving the briefing, George Abbott turned to Gordon Campbell and said in front of everyone..."Perhaps you would like to takeover and give the briefing"....Jaws dropped in the meeting and to everyone`s surprise, Gordon Campbell shut-up and nothing more was said.....Bobblehead does have a temper....And if not for all the lies that came so easy to Abbott he would be my choice of these four runners....The one positive I see if Abbott gets the nod....I see George Abbott doing next to nothing in the way of new policy, Abbott will take the safest route for the Province, that is if big business don`t rein him in...

And last but not least is Christy Cluckster Clark, a great speaker but that is her achiles heel, the problem with Clark is she will say and blurt out anything, lies, spin, actually all the BC Liberals lie but with Clark she will defend the lie even when overwhelmed with opposing evidence Christy will charge on, ...Unfortunately for Christy, she never completes anything, from not completing any of the universities she attended, her failed bid for Mayor of Vancouver, her failed marriage, a bear hunting, Manswer watching hater of teachers, .....But what scares me is the damage she did when she was education minister, I believe that Christy Clark hated her father( a school teacher), Christy failed in school but was successful in earning money and talking, rumor has it CKNW already has guests lined up for her return to talk radio at the end of the month!

Lastly folks, a sorry lot to say the least, two life long bureaucrats, a weasel and a deranged teacher hater who has an underlying hatred of her father.....

One more thing about Christy Clark, even the slimiest of the slimers Basi and Virk called Christy Clark`s brother Bruce Clark the greasy, dirty, slimy Mexeecan, even the slimers of BC Liberal backrooms consider Bruce Clark a sleazeball....Christy Clark, Bruce Clark, Paul Martin, David Maclean, the Federal Liberal sponsorship scandal, these are the players, Christy Clark and her connections had more to do with the loss of BC Rail than any of the others.....And despite Joe Public favouring Christy over the others, Christy Clark tears the party apart.....So who I would like to see win doesn`t matter, none can hold a candle to John Horgan...NDP`s new front runner....(Listen to a great radio interview on CKNW with Sean Leslie and John Horgan today, Saturday, February 19, 4:30pm to 4:47pm) Audio Vault here

So now...Who is my prediction, De Jong is gone but he holds the keys to the premiers office, Christy Clark will finish in third place, Abbott will finish in second place, all De Jong`s people will be sliding their support to Kevin Falcon, Falcon has guaranteed De Jong any ministry he wants, the reason I came to the conclusion I did, despite the negative visceral response the public has to Kevin Falcon, Big business, the Vancouver Sun, Global, CTV, big media and big business money still believe they can control the message and manipulate the people into voting for Kevin Falcon....Big business ran Gordon Campbell, Big business ran the BC Liberals, nothing will change, the backroom bosses are still there calling the shots......

Christy Clark will be placed back at CKNW to promote the BC Liberals and bash the NDP....And in a different world big business might win this round but not today, the middle east, the people`s revolt, France, Spain, Ireland, Iceland voted to allow their bank to fail rather than bail it out, protests in Wisconsin, in Washington DC...Republicans, Neo-cons, the Fraser institutes, the Michael Levys, the Michael Campbells, CD Howe, these rightwing nut jobs have had their way for the last 2 decades and decimated world finance and the world`s poor people are fighting back, the internet, the blogs, alternate media, everyday our readership rises while The Vancouver Suns, the Global, the CTVs all become irrelevant...

I`ll be listening for your lies Christy Clark, enjoy your short little term Falcon, how about nominating a new electoral chief officer De Jong(If you can spare the time).....And you George Abbott will make another very partisan speaker of the House.

And to all my readers, contact Google, Kootcoot`s House of Infamy was burnt to the Ground...Da House must be resurrected, demand the return of the House...Thank you for everything Kootcoot ....Words of Freedom can not be stifled

Despite Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins(republicans) bill that is giving the US Government the capability to shut down the internet

And how many more sites to be shut down by Government?

You`re out of Order(UPDATED)

BC Liberal John Von Dongen gets multiple excessive speeding tickets and has his driving license revoked and we the taxpayer have to pay for Von Dongen to get taxied around.....

Ken Dobell illegally lobbies the Gordon Campbell Government while working from a desk in the Premiers office and the court orders Ken Dobell to write an essay on why lobbying without registering is wrong....

John Les was exonerated by Robin Mcfee....The special prosecutor failed to point out the John Les was the only beneficiary of the illegal removals of land from the ALR....John Les is a corrupt bastard who not only wasn`t charged and jailed he was allowed to keep his ill-gotten gains!

Jane Thornthwaite who apologized for getting pissed out of her mind, getting in her car and driving drunk during the Oplympics....She is appearing in court in early April, 2011....Jane Thornthwaite has retracted her apology to her constituents and has plead NOT GUILTY....Despite the fact she admitted drinking large amounts of booze, despite hundreds of witnesses who saw Jane Thornthwaite chug a lugging .....What will the court do for Jane Thorthwaite....Will the crown throw out the charges or force Jane Thornthwaite to write an essay on drinking and driving!...

Kash Heed who fled from West Vancouver where he was facing several internal charges from the RCMP, charges laid by fellow officers, charges of interfering with criminal cases, one case involving child pornography...Kash Heed used an RCMP loophole...If Kash Heed left the West Vancouver force before his hearings.... he then, through the loophole could not be charged by the RCMP for these infractions, Kash Heed used a get out of jail free card, he gave up his job to avoid convictions from fellow police members...And that is exactly what the criminal Kash Heed did...He quit the top job as police chief, 18 months into a 4 year term Kash Heed quit to Join with the BC Liberals.....Not only did Kash Heed`s campaign team, Barinder Sall, Satpol Johl, break every election law, they conspired to send out illegal flyers, they overspent election limits, the Heed election team along with Kash Heed`s brother Gerry Heed lied to the police, they submitted phony documents, they attempted to lie, cheat and interfere in the police investigation, Heed`s campaign team are all being charged with crimes....

And since the 2009 BC Election Kash Heed has been paid over $300,000.00 dollars as an MLA when he is illegally holding office, Kash Heed is intending on riding the BC Court Gravy train for the entire 4 year term....First the BC Supreme court then the BC appeals court...Kash Heed is going to sponge from the public for every dime he can get!

$40 million dollars was spent to cover Gordon Campbell 2001 election lie and betrayal....Dave Basi...Bobby Virk...These guys took hundreds of thousands in bribes, they own multiple homes, vacation property, probably all their assets paid for by illegal bribes, yet they had all their legal fees paid for by you the taxpayer...Basi and Virk get to keep all their ill-gotten gains, just like John Les....

Yet Susan Heyes......Yes friends the BC Courts have erred in their judgement, they have been corrupted just like the BC Rail mock trial.....Susan Heyes and the other Cambie street merchants were told over and over again that the Canada line construction would be bored tunnel and disruptions in front of their stores would be but a few months at most....Yet after the Canada line project started INTRANSIT switched from a bored tunnel method to a cut-n-Cover method which meant two things....

It meant that Cambie street and surrounding area was disrupted for not a few months but for many years...Dozens of commercial stores went belly up....Business lost their profitability for years, cracked sidewalks, puddles, dirt piles, orange cones, loud noises, cracked foundations, blocked streets and this went on for years, the Canada line builders reneged on their promise of a bored tunnel and changed to cut n cover without consulting any of the affected businesses until after the fact....

With the help of a good lawyer(Cameron Ward) ..Susan Heyes and Cameron Ward took to the courts and the BC Supreme court found that Susan Heyes lost a ton of money and that INTRANSIT had misled the Cambie merchants on the contruction method and time frames of the disruptions....The BC Supreme court ordered a meager award to Susan Heyes of $600,000.00 dollars for all her provable business losses caused by Intransit and the Canada line construction....

Susan Heyes fought Translink, she fought the Gordon Campbell Government, she took them to court and won....Kash Heed has illegally collected over $300,000.00 in pay ....Kash Heed gets paid everyday while illegally holding office, a fraudulent election campaign, expense account, a cushy job hiding from the public and the press and Kash Heed will be paid by the time he is removed from office nearly $600,000.00 dollars ....Kash Heed gets paid a small fortune while illegally sitting in office yet Susan Heyes who had her business bankrupted, who proved in court the the Intransit lied about not only the construction method but the time frame of business disruptions...

And today, Friday, February 18th 2011....The BC Appeals court threw our Susan Heyes win and handed another illegal victory to the BC Government and Translink, the appeal courts judges failed in their ruling, they have confused eminent domain with deliberate lies.....Yes, Transit projects are for the good of the masses, yes, public projects that are for the benefit of the majority can indeed affect the minority, even a teeny weeny minority...But that doesn`t dissolve the BC Government or Translink from having to tell the truth, for that is where the BC Appeals court failed....

No one is disputing that the Canada line was going to be built, even if it took three arm-twisting votes by the Mayors council....But Translink, Intransit had the obligation to be truthful to the Cambie street merchants, eminent Domain went out the window when Tranlink and Intransit lied to the Cambie merchants on the construction methods and lied about the length of the disruption, store owners were told that there would be disruptions for a few weeks and at most maybe a few months.....That is what the Merchants were told before the construction started...

If Translink and Intransit had told the merchants well before the project started that cut-n-cover will be used and Cambie street will be a loud noisy construction zone for years as a result....If the businesses were told that early on they had the option of staying or leaving, but that isn`t what happened, it was only after the construction started that the truth was revealed, by that time it was too late for store owners to get out, leases were signed and commitments made .........

When the Transit Authority lied both Eminent Domain and the rule of law regarding normal construction delays and disruptions must be tossed out of court........Kash Heed will be paid over $500,000.00 dollars he doesn`t  deserve and the BC Supreme court just stole Susan Heyes meager monetary settlement based on flawed logic....

I guarantee that Susan Heyes will win in the Supreme court of Canada....There is no justice in British Columbia, Essays and tainted special prosecutors, gag laws, Gerrymandering, drunk driving politicians, drunk premiers, illegal lobbyists, Basi, Virk, $40 million dollars and Basi and Virk get to keep their combined ownership of 8 homes, they sit at home with their pension and families with all their ill-gotten gains...John Les with his illegal land holdings, $900 million dollars for a retractable roof, shadow tolls on the Sea to Sky highway, bank taxes slashed, subsidies for Ecana Gas....Environmental assessments gutted, ........

There is no law or justice for injured workers, no justice for struggling business owners, but slimy Corrupt BC Liberals like Ken Dobell, Patrick Kinsella, Von Dongen, Jane Thornthwaite, Gordon Campbell, John Les and Kash Heed can stick their faces deep into the public trough, what law, what courts, the BC Appeals court should be ashamed of themselves, the BC Appeals court just changed the lay of the land, for if their ruling is left to stand the BC Appeals court have made new law, Governments and Government builders can now deliberately lie to business, they can lie to the public, Translink can say whatever they want, Enbridge can say whatever they want, and major construction  company can lie about the method of construction and time-lines of disruption, and face no repercussions, .......All under the guise of the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few`....

Where was Government for the people just once

For even if you look at the Intransit claim which the court agreed was true, Intransit would have incurred $hundreds of millions in additional construction costs had they not switched to cut-n-cover method over bored tunnel....If that is true....Certainly Intransit could have passed on a few $million dollars to the businesses.....They say they saved all that money, rather than pony up a few dollars they spent even more litigating in a bought court!

 Intransit had money to compensate the Musqeam First Nations for fishing disruptions under the Canada line bridge, the Musqeam didn`t have to prove losses, the Musqeam didn`t have to sue, the Musqeam could have fished on either side of the Canada line bridge, but merchants with real losses get nothing!

Remember the HEU lawsuit against the BC Government, they too found no justice in our courts, the HEU had to go east to the Supreme court of Canada for justice..... I suspect Susan Heyes can win there too......And if she wins in the Canada Supreme court, what does that say about our BC courts.

Well well well....The needs of the many need a severed Gordon Campbell Head served on a platter, the needs of the many need to see Kash Heeds head, Jane Thornthwaite, Von Dongen , John Les`s head, the public needs to see the severed heads of BC Liberals served on a platter, BC needs a Justice System!...

The Appeals court is out of order, the Government is out of order, the judges are out of order, the whole damn BC legal machine is out of order!

Updated here....WCB(Worsafe BC) Has slashed the fines they levied against SNC Lavalin, a crane operator was killed on the Canada line project during construction, WCB found that the employee wasn`t properely trained and supervision was lacking....What does this have to do with Susan Heyes?....The builders of the Canada line had their WCB fines slashed in half, a second fine was eliminated...So WCB gave SNC Lavalin a financial  gift(out of taxpayer dollars) a week agter Susan Heyes entire award was taken back....Fucking Shocking and Typical of the BC LIBERALS...Here`s the story

Gordon Muir Campbell, Con Man

Perhaps my posts have become a little vague lately....I didn`t want to appear cocky....The Olympic village disaster...I told you so....Golden Ears bridge(yawn)...We had the story 2 years ago....Natural gas revenues plummet, yes friends we wrote about that last year too....

Propaganda....I have been beating the drum about the non-stop propaganda being used on you everyday, Michael Campbell who is filling in for Bill Good this week....Everyday, pensions are unsustainable, health care costs can`t continue to rise, people are living too long..Blah blah blah...Today Michael Campbell had on as a guest John Kesselman...An economist who just wrote a propaganda piece for the BCBC (British Columbia Business Council)..A group of business mouthpieces headed up by Jock Finlayson....Another phony paper from a pretend economist telling us how great the HST and how it doesn`t cost BCers anything....HA!

John Kesselman lied on the radio today...That`s right folks he lied his face off...He distorted facts and used political spin disguised as fact....Kesselman made the claim that poor people are ahead of the game...Kesselman made the claim that the HST cost BCers a mere  $1 dollar in tax on every $165.00 dollars they spend....In other words Kesselman said.....If you spend $1650.00 dollars the HST added costs will amount to $10 dollars...If you spend 16,500.00 dollars the additional costs attributed to the HST amounts to $100.....And if you spend 165,000.00 dollars the HST added costs are but $1000 dollars....

Kesselman is a BC Liberal con man....For example...If you bought a $1 million dollar new home the added HST on that purchase would be $70 thousand dollars(less rebate of 22k leaving a net loss of nearly $50 thousand dollars)...

A $10,000.00 Dollar used car will have an additional HST cost $700 hundred dollars.....John Kesselman paper(I haven`t found the link yet) is a joke!

John Kesselman was paid to produce a phony vague report on the HST that was nothing but spin and distortion, we have lost 40,000 jobs in BC in the last three months, the HST is a yearly $2 billion dollars per year in new taxes from the public...And simple math provides a simple answer, if the population  of BC is 4 million people...Divide 4 million people by $2 billion dollars and it works out to over $500 dollars per man woman and child in BC...Those are the facts, math can`t be spun...

John Kesselman also lied today when he said..."Business have reduced their prices and passed on all their saving`s to the public"

Food prices are up, every service price is up, fuel is up, fees are up, new house prices are up, even liquor prices are up after the BC Government increased the floor price......According to John Kesselman and his phony math BCers must be spending a staggering $330 billion dollars on taxable goods every year ....Because according to Kesselman`s math...BCers are out a mere $1 dollars in HST tax on every $165 dollars spent, well .....To come up with with $2 billion dollars according to Kesselman BCers must be spending 165 to 1......$2 billion dollars times 165 =  $330 billion dollars....

Like I said...John Kesselman is a bold faced liar, his math his wrong, his assertions are wrong.....Kesselman couldn`t name one item that had been reduced in price!...Michael Campbell and John Kesselman refused to allow any phone calls on the topic, had they allowed callers the public and this persuader would have publicly called Kesselman a BOLD FACED LIAR!

I wrote about the CBSC taking music away, lately the CRTC has been, at the same time they are gutting fair-and-balanced legislation...The CRTC is attempting to give carte Blanche permissen to radio voices and TV news broadcasts to lie on the air, not only on talk radio but TV and radio newcasts, the CRTC is attempting to gut our protections, the new legislation the CRTC is proposing .....Radio and News cast personalities ....Unless you can prove they lied on puropose AND CAUSED PUBLIC HARM...Only then can you file charges against the broadcaster, in other words lies on TV and radio  would be allowed unless it physically harmed the public...

The Campbell and Harper Governments see what is happening in Europe, in Spain, in Ireland, in France, Egypt, the middle east, even down south, the public is ready to revolt, BC is a hot-bed of Government revolt, the anti-HST revolt is a great example, the moves being made by the CRTC and the CBSC are preemptive strikes against Democracy...Governments in Canada are attempting to stifle free speech and news, he who controls the news controls the people....My blog has been attacked, I have been attacked, Kootcoot and the House of Infamy has been burnt to the ground....

Bill Good is a liar, Christy Clark is  liar, Gordon Campbell is a liar and thief, ......

The BC Rail document dump, again I believe that big media is trying to spin the story, apparently there were thousands of documents released yesterday, how can within minutes of the document dump can CTV write a story saying no cabinet minister is involved?....Very interesting....

The big media, the radio voices, certain bloggers like AGT are freaking out about the document dump, you see folks, everybody except for a few wise people are falling for the propaganda...And of course our fine contributers know what is going on, was the BC Rail scandal ever about two ministerial aides?...Was BC Rail not about an election lie?...Should`t  a trial been about devaluing a public asset, about lying, about betrayal, Who..Why...When...How.....How did an election lie, how did selling a $billion dollar asset for pennies that belonged to the public to Gordon Campbell`s campaign financer get turned into a $40 million dollar mock trial against two dirty aides.....Why has no one looked into the David Maclean Gordon Campbell campaign connection, .....Who cares about the in-between......The day Gordon Campbell won the 2001 election BC Rail was gone.....$40 million dollars and 7 years, $40 million dollars to avoid the real question....

`Gordon Campbell.....What deal did you make with David Maclean for financing your Provincial election runs in 1996 and 2001

Dave Basi and Bobby Virk don`t matter, the sponge Bruce Clark doesn`t matter, forget about the ultra rich ex husband of Christy Clark Mark Marrissen, forget about the liars Brian Keiran and Eric Bornmann, forget about Omni Trax....Forget about the $40 million dollars in legal fees to both the defence and prosecution...None of that matters!

The BC Rail tragedy is about Gordon Muir Campbell and David Maclean....Gordon Campbell lied his face off in 2001 and said he wouldn`t sell BC Rail, the problem is Gordon Campbell had already made a personal promise to David Maclean to give him and CN our Railway in exchange for massive amounts of election campaign cash!

Everything  after that doesn`t matter, it doesn`t matter how all the BC Liberal MLAs had their balls cut-off and had their voices silenced, everyone of the BC Liberal MLAs in exchange for cash looked the other way and lied to the public!

And what we must remember, Gordon Campbell in 2001 should have stood up and declared that the Province of BC is going to sell BC Rail.....Campbell was the premier and he had the right to make the decision to sell BC Rail, (I don`t think any one person should have that power).....But....But Gordon Campbell did have the power to make the decision....

But instead of Gordon Campbell being a man and standing up and telling the public BC Rail will be sold for as much as we can get for it.....

Instead of that happening Gordon Campbell spent Government money, money from the BC Commons was spent by Gordon Campbell and his spineless MLAs to travel the Province talking down BC Rail, in the Legislature day after day in 2001 and 2002 Gordon Campbell bad-mouthed our asset and drove down the price, that my friends is the story, not the lie, not the sale but Gordon Campbell spending your tax dollars and two years to drive down the price and value of our asset.....

And that is why we need an inquiry, nothing would have happened without Gordon Campbell lying and deliberately devaluing BC Rail as a favour to his friend and campaign finance man David Maclean...

Who puts their business or house up for sale and tells the world it`s debt ridden, the basement leaks, the walls are thin, the appliances don`t work, BC Rail is not the Olympic village....

Gordon Campbell committed a crime against the commons by single handedly devaluing public assets as a personal and financial favour to David Maclean......Gordon Campbell is British Columbia`s most prolific thief and criminal!

If Gordon Campbell was going to be selling BC Rail he and the Government should have been talking up BC Rail, talking up the future, the access, that is what a leader does, so meanwhile the media and propaganda machines spins and twists the BC Rail document dump about cabinet ministers with clean hands, pundits, media, confused bloggers who think Basi and Virk were innocent fall guys.....Memo...Schmemo...Who cares

BC Rail is about the Liar and thief Gordon Campbell...It`s about BC Liberal MLA`s who lied to their constituents and the General Public, it`s about ethics and honour.....BC Rail is gone, the Tax indemnity issue must be resolved, there is no way in hell CN Rail will receive one dime of the $670 million dollar and growing tax indemnity......

If David Maclean and CN Rail want to claim that Gordon Campbell gift tax indemnity.....Take us to court....Lets talk in 10 years Mr. Maclean, ....."No comment, it`s before the courts"

Big Brother is Coming to a Town Near You












        






































Sign the petition folks....The CRTC has been infiltrated by the enemy, last month it was music and the CBSC, now they are threatening our internet use...And...



And now the CRTC is about to allow corporate infomercials to be broadcast as news, the changes being proposed will also make it impossible to charge radio voices for lying on air, the proposed changes will turn broadcast news into a free-for-all ...Anything goes, with what goes on at Global news and CKNW already...




My Gawd, could you imagine what this change would mean.....The CRTC is attempting to stifle internet use and at the same time are attempting to ban music, attempting to scare off bloggers with threats of libel ....




The little voices are being silenced at the time corporate voices and broadcasters are being given the green light to spin the news....The drum is beating loudly friends, thousands dead in Egypt...Riots in Iran, in Europe, Spain, France, Governments around the world are preparing to silence our voices, here in B.C...No Government, no legislative sessions, a corrupt Government, a disgraced Government, who`s running the show????




Teck Cominco...Ecana Gas...Paragon...Phil Hocstein...The Chinese....




A "mock BC Rail Trial"...Gag laws, Gerrymandering...Intrusions with smart meters.....The Government will be able to send you messages daily through these devices, control, control, control....The people are getting angry, Governments are running huge debts and the propaganda machine CKNW  all week has Michael Campbell, brother of the disgraced Gordon Campbell beating the drum all week about unsustainable health care, unfunded pensions, too many entitlements, drip drip drip of propaganda yet corrupt Governments can afford $3 billion dollar bridges and $900 million dollar retractable roof....Millions for upgrading BCLC computers...Money for banks, money for corporate subsidies while Hydro rates, MSP premiums, carbon taxes, HST, propert taxes, road tolls, skyrocketing ferry rates, highest tuition in Canada, highest fuel prices, BC with the highest household debts, lowest minimum wages and a decade of leading Canada in child poverty....




Throne speech after throne speech and year after year the stench emanating from the BC Liberal LIE pile has ripened, a tired, corrupt BC Liberal pack of hyenas who are still blaming the NDP of the 90s for all their ills...




Prepare for a tsunami of propaganda coming from Stephen Harper..Gordon Campbell, prepare for another promotional HST wave, prepare for Government messaging the likes you have never seen before....Rumour has it PAB is hiring...CBSC..CRTC...Harper..BC Liberals...The ability for radio and TV voices to lie with impunity..

Hi grant,

Canadian journalism as we know it only has 48 hours left to live -- that is if the CRTC moves forward with its new loophole that would allow outright lies to be broadcast to the public.

The CRTC rule -- "coincidentally" coming just in time for the launch of Fox New North (Sun TV) -- would require complaints about news stories to not only prove that the broadcaster knew the information was wrong, but also that its broadcast posed a threat to the lives, health or safety of the public.

Fox News in the United States has used its loose interpretation of "news" to boost ratings and push its right-wing agenda. The only thing preventing someone from doing the same in Canada is the "fair and balanced" rule the CRTC is ready to gut.

Lies don't have to put people in physical danger to be dangerous. The spread of falsehoods as "news" is corrosive to democracy.

There are less than 48 hours left to raise a public outcry to stop the dismantling of journalistic integrity in Canada. The CRTC needs to know that you, your friends, your family and all Canadians won't tolerate lies broadcast as news.

Sign the petition, post it to Facebook, tweet it out to your network and send it to your friends.

Thanks for taking action!

Golden Ears Bridge Boondoggle Revisited(Updated February 16/2011)

 As written here last year, Golden Ears bridge to lose millions for years...The Olympic villages and now this story, I wonder if the media gets tired of being a day late and a dollar short every time? you can read the above link, or you can read what was written long ago below.



Well friends, the mouthpiece for Translink Drew Snider has been on the news of late,particularly talking about the Golden Ears bridge, apparently the bridge has not met revenue projections,Drew Snider blamed the economic downturn and claimed indirectly that people can`t seem to find the elusive bridge,let`s crunch the numbers.
First off, the claim by the Habitual lying Campbell Government that Construction of the Golden Ears bridge was on budget is false, it didn`t cost the $800 million they claimed,the price was actually $1.2 billion dollars.
A little background information is required, under the original terms of the deal between Translink and the builder the builder would get paid back for the build through tolls, but, it wasn`t until the 11th hour when the builder and Translink changed the deal, it`s obvious now that the builder knew it had zero chance to recoup the build cost let alone make money on the tolls,so the deal was changed, under the new terms of the deal Translink would pay the builder a set fee schedule, a fee schedule that started very low in the first year and spirals upwards at an alarming rate.
Before I get into the fee schedule I would like to quickly discuss what Drew Snider said yesterday.
Here are some Drew Snider quotes from yesterday.
" Because of the global economic turn down we didn`t realize our traffic forecasts" and this..."We expect that when the economy picks up so will toll revenue".....and more "We aren`t anticipating raising tolls at this time" and Drew Snider continued..."We are planning on advertising the bridge" snip.
Well well well, those were the statements, first off, wasn`t the GVRD going great guns with all the Olympic activity? Secondly, what kind of fool does Drew Snider take the public for, is there anyone who doesn`t know where the secret entrance to the Golden Ears bridge is? I thought everyone knew that you drive through the bat cave, turn right at the fortress of solitude,then a hard left at wonder woman way.......Sheesh, I reference comic books because Drew Snider is definitely living in fantasy land, although I don`t blame Drew Snider, Gordon Campbell`s public affairs bureau are the idiots behind these news releases, and of course Canwest Global/CTV or CKNW Stooges merely pump out the garbage without question, the real truth of the matter is the Golden Ears bridge is a financial disaster growing by leaps and bounds!
Now according to Drew Snider the Golden Ears bridge from June 20 (Grand opening) to the first of the year the bridge lost $2.1 million dollars.
The Fee Schedule___________________________________________________
  1. Translink will pay to the builders from June/20/2009 through to December 31/2009 ...$500.000,00 (1/2 million dollars) per month,plus a monthly maintenance fee of $316.000,00.
  2. From Jan 1/2010 through to June 30/2010 Translink will pay the builder $1.5 million dollars per month plus a monthly maintenance fee of $316.000,00 dollars.
  3. From July 1/2010 through to June 30/2011 Translink will pay the builder $3 million dollars per month plus a monthly maintenance fee of $316.000,00 dollars.
  4. From July 1/2011 though to June 30/2015 Translink will pay the builder $4 million per month plus a monthly maintenance fee of 316.000,00 dollars.
  5. From July 1/2015 through to ...................2040 translink will pay the builder $4.7 million dollars plus a monthly maintenance fee of $316.000,00 dollars.
So friends, we can extrapolate from the numbers,if Translink lost $2.1 million dollar in roughly 6 months, over a year that number rises to over $4 million dollars...But, that was at the lowest fee schedule, $500.000,00 per month....So we can further project that between January 1/2010 to June 30/2010 Translink will lose $8.1 million dollars more.
And we can project that between July 1/2010 and June 30/2011 Translink will lose $34 million dollars,or let me re-phrase,will have to pay the builder $34 million dollars over and above toll revenue.
And we can project that after July 1 /2011 Translink will lose $46 million dollars per year until ........Until the Port Mann tolls start up, at that time the losses will subside somewhat.but the bridge will still lose millions and millions per year for decades.
Now I expect that the Fine folks of Langley and Maple Ridge are going to be in for some shocking Toll increases,the tolls are already pegged to inflation,in other words the tolls will rise each year to keep up with inflation, but those increases will be but 1% to 3% per year, not earth shattering numbers, but unscheduled toll increases are going to be put on the bridge,that or Translink will fry with debt, also yesterday Drew Snider claimed that Translink`s total revenue losses for the year were $68 million dollars, a big chunk of that loss went to subsidize the money losing Canada line, that boondoggle is for another day, one Gordon Campbell financial disaster per week is all I can handle!
Back to the boondoggle Golden ears bridge, Drew Snider can blame the bogey man or claim the entrance to the bat cave is the reason revenue projections are way off all he wants, he can leave trails of bread crumbs leading to the bridge,it won`t help, I visit Maple ridge every month, my friends refuse to use the bridge,they can`t afford it,those who can put their backs up and drive around anyway.
I`m going to give you a little friendly advice Drew Snider, I hope you`re listening Gordon Campbell,you too Shirley Bond, what you must do, don`t shoot the messenger folks but here`s the deal...
Remove the tolls on the Golden Ears bridge(sort of).....Add tolls on every main bridge in the GVRD, $1 dollar per crossing, maxing out at $3 dollars per day,in other words the most people will be billed per month is $100 dollars, but, at least everyone driving will pay,even the rich boys on the north shore, and while your at it,put a toll on the sea to sky highway(past horseshoe bay,but not for local residents,for the rich ski crowd) What`s fair is fair.....I guarantee that if you spike the tolls on the Golden Ears bridge cars driving on that bridge will be rarer than spotted owls or Vancouver island Marmots!
