Dell's Canadian Tails

Dell on Democracy & Controlling the Population

These last few days I have been without internet. Now that things are back up and running, I would like to share on a hypothetical situation Ron and I have been thinking over these last few rainy days.

Just suppose, we began, if we were to look at history for the last sixty years; think in terms of what the allies learned from Hitler. Following the war, it had to have been noted that the German government's information, both vital statistics and personal information, allowed greater control over the population. The Nazi's near success in the war, and huge success at exterminating people using the brilliant manipulation of the population through media control and propaganda, were just a few of their successes. The population who are unquestioningly dutiful when asked to provide information, show up for epidemic needles, get on the train, and so on...well, they just go ahead and do whatever they're asked. The leaders know best.
We also noted that since the war, there have been some additional surefire methods to be employed, such as new drug addictions, psychotropic drugs, and rehabilitation and social agencies to deal with every little aspect of a life.Additionally, Psychology, post-war, was gaining wide respect despite never being subjected to a medical model and a Diagnostic Manual that grows with each problem society produces.
The public trusted psychology and went along with labels of depression, anxiety and stress, without asking if the social conditions precipitating their mental illness were the result of a calculated social policy meant to drive people to the edge and seek drugs, or become addicted through legal drugs, only to be refused and forced to buy illegal drugs.  You would have to be manipulating the population with these and other techniques, in order to cull and remove individuals, just as Hitler did, except you wouldn't be doing it as policy but as secondary hidden agenda.
It would be necessary to create news items with world issues and various news items to keep the population focused on the usual: war, poisoning the environment, sexual preference issues, abortion versus right to life, consumerism on a scale unparalleled, and give them any darn thing they want and let them fight themselves silly. Just don't let the population notice what is really happening: we're getting rich off their misery.
If you need or want to cull or get rid of a certain segment of society, you don't do it overtly in this new order. You just scare everyone into lining up for a needle to cure the latest epidemic. Later, when some who went to one nurse get cancer and others who went to another desk don't get cancer, no one will make the connection.
If you want to control people, you come down heavy on crime but only once you've made sure that there is plenty of crime. You don't want to really end crime, but make a good show of things in order to bring more and more police on board. Except the drug crime is actually being fed purposely in order to create social breakdown, further criminalize and control people, infiltrate their lives using social agencies to keep track and brow beat people, and hang labels on everyone. 
You have to control most media [see my most recent post on CBC and youtube.
When all else fails, you threaten the person with death, death of a loved one, a loved one will go missing, a loved one suddenly gets cancer, dies in a freak accident and the like. Or more subtle control: the individual or group are punished by not getting a promotion, having you pay into a pension then robbing you of that pension by not closing the loop-hole laws that put creditors ahead of pensioners, and so on. Some men, no matter how good as fathers, will never find a court to enforce their Order for child access: all things in your family life are chosen for you, except you don't know it.
The internet is the last gasp for those who see what is happening and are trying to open the eyes of the public who would assume that a nice looking face and a smile wouldn't be party to this scenario: somehow I hear the words, "you won't feel a thing" coming. Hello...are they building long-term care homes? Why not?
The reason this scenario isn't jumping out and biting people is that they believe there are several political parties. There are several parties, but there is an unspoken dynasty of money that is behind the bigger plan and it's all about money and not party politics.
The control exerted increasingly over the population over the course of history these last sixty years has been just subtle enough to appear to be no more than the way life goes. 
Except it isn't real.
Is it possible to reverse the power that is exerted upon the likes of Richard Fadden, a credible decent man, when he tries to give enough information so that people will get curious? Must the public wait like dump sheep, while Fadden is bullied into line and Canadian laws are not obeyed by our own police and politicians.
That's crap? you say. Given what was known about psychiatry, psychotropics, scientific advances and the like by 1945, it is not much of a leap to picture a scenario in which the greedy victors set about to create the social conditions by which they would profit for generations.
The ultimate control lies in negating the rights of the individual entrenched in democracy. What took place in Toronto at the G20 recently is the beginning of the final push for that total control.
Given what has been going on since my internet failed, I did notice that the news appears to have been manipulated yet again. Canadian politicians of Chinese background are interviewed, sounding reasonable, accusing Mr. Fadden of behaving irresponsibly with his statements and offending the Chinese Canadian population.
Meanwhile, rhe money grubbers want Canadians to focus on the issue of offending the Chinese, so you won't notice that they're stealing the country blind. As long as the Conservatives and Liberals refuse to close the cash cow loop-holes, they are separate parties in name only. The policies might differ, but the same people are getting rich. Money knows no ethnic or political ties, Chinese, or otherwise: Money only loves more money.
Well, that's what our talk covered. Hope tomorrow's post is shorter; but, if you don't see me and I suddenly die in a freak accident, or my children or loved ones suffer, would you consider it important then to ensure the police act within the law? and the law is not up for changing or being lied about by our politicians and police? Or will you wait until you're asking,"why didn't I see it coming?"

Dell on Outdoors Hospitality & Visitors

It's always nice when someone drops by unexpectedly at the lake. Just a couple guys, friends of Ron, checking to make sure they were heading in the right direction. Ron thought he was tucked out of the way of visitors behind the white pines and the bluffs; yet, even in the wilderness, the outdoorsmen type will drop by for a visit if he's in the general vicinity and generally you're happy to have the company.
These two fellows asked if I'd heard of any break-ins recently on this lake. I guess some folks who aren't in residence at camps on the bigger lakes have taken some tough losses when their backs were turned. What are you going to do? You can't keep a camp under guard 24/7, right? And camp insurance always costs a fortune or isn't even available if you don't meet stringent fire prevention standards. I can hear Shelley saying, "Grampa, you digress."
It actually turned out to be a serendipitous meeting, these two fellows showing up when they did. I was headed down to the dock to rinse my socks out after a hand washing, forgetting Shelley had lifted the indoor/outdoor carpet to give it a complete drying in the sun. Where the rug had been, the dock was all slippery. These two fellows saw me slip and catch myself and insisted on replacing the missing carpet before they headed out so I would have a sure footing. The outdoorsman is just naturally safety conscious to the point of watching out for whoever they meet along life's path. It's been a lovely weekend so far, despite my high blood pressure acting up. The prescription for my gout seems to be working just fine. I shudder to think of how crippled up I'd have been without it: especially, if I'd slipped on the dock with no one there to notice. Shelley would have had my hide!
What she doesn't know won't worry her, right? A good lie of omission: Is there such a thing?

Dell on Cooling Off

In the cold days of February I have dreamed of hot July days. Today is a scorcher, it's July, and I hear myself thinking, "a tad cooler" would be okay just about now. The truth is, I will end up taking whatever comes.The most I can ever hope to do is check which way the wind is blowing and go from there.
Time to head for the shade, slow down and cool off!

Dell on McGuinty, The Boys Club & Sacrificial Lambs

Premier Dalton McGuinty, " I don't believe you."
When you tell the Canadian press:
"Some confusion arose, and in hindsight I think that we could have, and probably should have, done something to make it perfectly clear to people," or that your government could have "done a better job" of informing people about the temporary, powers-granting regulations you were part of orchestrating.
Using the Ontario Public Works Protection Act, you were in on this from the beginning and made not a single clarification following that secretly changed legislation, back on June 2, 2010: notably, not even as Canadian citizens' rights were violated hundreds of times over during the Summits.
This change to Ontario law, done in secrecy, to perpetrate a lie of the supposed granting of "powers of arrest" was done, the public were told, at the behest of Toronto Chief of Police Blair, who similarly did nothing to clarify the "confusion" until after the Summit, and then, when asked if there had in fact been law permitting the unlawful searches and arrests, smiled and said, "No, but I was trying to keep the criminals out."
Blair's smug smile and clear disdain for acting within the law said it all, Premier McGuinty: this was a planned and co-ordinated effort to circumvent the law.
Sgt. Burrows in charge of G8 and G20 security needs to be relieved from his position immediately. If he simply believed he had new, sweeping powers of arrest and did not ask to see a written copy of that same new law, he's incompetent. If, having seen the written copy of the actual law, he went ahead with illegal search, seizures and arrests, Sgt.Burrows broke the law and should be fired. It's a lose/lose situation.
Ontario's solicitor general, Liberal MPP, Minister of Public Safety and Correction, Rick Bartolucci, knew as well.[see my earlier posts].

Toronto Police Chief Blair's smug admission of complicity was the undoing of all of you. The boys club attitude that says we're just going to do this it this way and later say it was a matter of "confusion" and misunderstanding, isn't going to wash this time.
Do you think the public haven't guessed that since your solicitor general, Rick Burrows, knew all about this, that your next move will be have the Crown Attorney drop the false charges in order to prevent a court challenge that would surely expose what you and your boys club have been up to?

No, I think all four of you should be thrown out on your rear ends. If there is an inquiry, I'd put money on it that this goes right to the top. There are no party lines...Conservative...Liberal...when there's money to be made, as Richard Fadden, head of CSIS revealed. The loop-holes that need closing in Canada's laws, to enforce accountability, have been there for too long and abused by the Liberals, too. Wasn't it the Liberals who brought in the flawed Whistleblowers Act (PSDPA) that sounds good but in reality  provides no way to enforce accountability?
The only difference between the Liberals and Conservatives right now, is that Harper's government promised to close the loop-holes and end the gravy train with transparency in government affairs, but once elected, the Harper government bellied up to the trough, just as governments before have done.
The greed, deceit, arrogance and indifference of Harper's government is without precedent in this country, because they promised change and have sold out both Canada's security and future wealth, for the money they could make in the moment.
I am reminded of the Marcos regime of the Phillipines: and how many shoes does the lady have?
Premier McGuinty said he doesn't feel he owes the public an apology for the illegal actions of police and politicians during the G8 and G20 summits.
Save your apology, sir, I am offended enough already.
It would appear you four are to be sacrificial lambs on PM Harper's continuing altar of greed.
Honesty, Premier McGuinty, would have impressed me at this point: An apology? Not even close.

Dell on What Is CBC Up To?

You know how something sticks in your craw? Someone will say something? or you see something? and something about it nags at you? Something just doesn't fit and you can't quite put your finger on what it is?
For me it was several things all on the same day.

One was the video report by Jennifer Hollet of CBC on June 27, 2010.

The other was Susan Ormiston's report to CBC 'The National'  on the same day regarding the police abrogation of citizens' rights in Toronto at the G20, asking, "What country am I living in?"

Jennifer Hollet,of CBC, in her report, made a point of showing two videos side by side and a number of  what I found intriguing statements, throughout her video report: 

Prior to Ms. Hollet's report, another CBC reporter draws attention to a protester shouting out, "See you on youtube"
Then Ms. Hollet's report followed, in which she talks about the 70 "new security cameras" in Toronto for the G20...
" one could argue that these are actually the new security cameras." [Hollet holds up her flip cam]
"My flip cam allowed me to get right up close when protesters took over police vehicles"
..."Here I was shooting a police car on fire when riot police suddenly storm the crowd"
..."Just this morning, with everyone having these little cameras"..."Police can't separate the protesters from the press"..."the media line blurs"...
At this point the side by side videos are shown: "take a's actually the CBC's "
Jennifer Hollet CBC video

Side by side are then  two identical videos. The video was posted to youtube by the CBC video journalist...
Hollet draws attention to the fact a CBC journalist has posted to youtube...what's with that? why mention it?
Is she saying the CBC video was posted by the journalist filming it because he didn't think it would make it to air? ...or is she saying some news doesn't make it to air?...or is she saying, something you've seen as news is not real?
"as journalists we're trying to make sense of what you see?" is the ending.

Is someone manipulating the news?
... with staged bank bombings? terrorist acts that are really "controlled events"? to drum up public support for Harper's policies and discredit CSIS' whistleblower, Richard Fadden?
Is there an effort being made to draw Canadians' attention from the bigger story?
Richard Fadden has told Canadians that Harper's government has done nothing to close the loop-holes that make Canada vulnerable to foreign influence and theft of trade secrets and technology? [because PM Harper and his friends are getting rich leaving the loop-holes in place.]

If I wanted to draw the attention of the public to news manipulation, I'd do a piece like Jennifer Hollet's report. It comes across like a hostage trying to send a message.
If that's what Hollet was up to, sending an innocuous report with a deeper message, in such a way as to not  draw attention from the censors, I would have used the same sort of word choices, phrasing, order of phrasing, visual clues, etc....
Susan Ormiston, "What country am I living in?"
CBC reports: "protestor shouts back: See you on youtube."
Jennifer Hollet does a piece on CBC news footage being posted at youtube.
Either CBC is slipping in the way it covers news, or CBC is telling Canadians, "look, listen and make sense of what you are seeing."
CBC news: what are you up to?

Dell on PM Harper: An Abuser Behind A Churchy Face

There was a time when I voted Conservative. I trusted when the Reform Party, made accountability a big part of their platform. I trusted both before and after they joined the Conservative government. I naively believed that the goodness of a person from a Christian background was an indication of moral stature.

Canadians have been horrified at the sexual abuse that went on because a few clergy put on a "churchy face" only to seek victims for their personal gratification.

What I believe now is that PM Harper and his friends put on their "churchy" faces, promised to do the morally correct thing, and then sc**wed those they claimed to serve.
If it sounds a lot like the clergy abusing boys scenario, keep in mind there is a difference:
Harper & Co. find their gratification in money, and not sex.
The Christian community were shaken by the sex abuse revelations. I am hoping they will be similarly reviled following Richard Fadden's whistleblowing. Harper's government have brought further shame to all  Christians and their churches.
There will always be some who will use another's goodness as an occasion to serve their own ends. What bothers me, this Canada Day, is that PM Harper and his government doubted anyone would speak out. Their arrogance and self-interest was proceeding unimpeded.
Until Richard Fadden spoke up to save the victim from further abuse. Will Canadians support and protect Richard Fadden?
I believe they will. And that, is a terrific reason to start celebrating Canada Day.

Dell on What Richard Fadden Said & What It Means To Canadians

On June 23rd and 24th, I posted, following the CBC interview of  Richard Fadden, director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, (CSIS). I believed then that Fadden's timing was no accident.

Having since read Alison Crawford's Blog at CBC Inside Politics CBC Whistleblowers Act : Disclosure Not Enforceable, I see exactly what Richard Fadden was saying.

Harper has put this country's wealth and resources at risk to the tune of billions of dollars and allowed foreign infiltration, secondary to his government and cronies getting rich.The closure of  loop-holes that would prevent the rape of the nation are secondary to Harper's government's self-interest.

Instead of addressing those loop-holes, as one would expect Harper to have done, given Harper's promise on the transparency of PSPDA, Harper instead chose to do nothing.

There is no accountabilty! The Whistleblowers Act is flawed. There is no way to enforce disclosure. There are loop-holes all over and this government won't shut them because they are getting rich on not doing so.

That 1 billion dollar security threat for the G20:  another opportunity to spend without accountability. Get tough on crime? Sure.Who cares if you break the taxpayers back building those jails. He'll tell you where to put your tax dollar after he comes up with a policy aimed to drain your pocketbook.

Couple the unenforceable Whistleblowers Act and loop-holes all over the place, with Fadden's revelations, and this is what it means:

Harper's government have used these flaws as a means to get rich because there is no accountability. Harper has knowingly permitted foreign influence in Canada and failed to acknowledge and deal with the billions of dollars lost to stolen Canadian trade and technology secrets. Why? Because it would mean the end of the gravy train.
"Secret, unethical political donations and government lobbying are legal across Canada, as are blatant conflicts of interest, and no enforcement agency conducts audits to ensure compliance with the weak ethics rules that do exist, making it easy for anyone, including foreign governments, to corrupt any politician or government official in any government in the country," from Duff Conacher, Coordinator of Democracy Watch.I strongly recommend you read the entire release: Democracy Watch: June 23rd release 2010

The thing about this particular whistleblower, Richard Fadden, is his long and faithful service: He's credible. We, as Canadian citizens, need to understand what it is he said and means and then "get mad as hell" and say we're "not going to take it anymore."

The Harper government have put their self-interest ahead of Canadians interests. They should be tossed out promptly, the loop-holes closed and the nonsense of Harper's tough on crime policy exposed for what it is. His friends get rich getting tough on crime: it's a chance to build jails we don't need so his friends will make money. He would create misery getting tough to make a buck. Harper has robbed Canadians over and over and over, failing to close the loop-holes, demonstrating an utter contempt for those he is supposed to serve. It's time to get tough on crime, PM Harper. Let's start with what you have done on the backs of Canadians.
And, on this Canada Day, let me be among the first to say to Richard Fadden, "Thank you."
