Canada: MPs' Report Finds Government in Contempt

The Conservative government is in contempt of Parliament, a report by a committee of MPs tabled Monday concludes.


The government's failure to produce all documents that had been requested from it or to provide a satisfactory explanation for withholding them impedes the ability of MPs to carry out their duties, the report said, and the government is therefore in contempt.

The 26-page report was tabled late Monday afternoon and 48 hours must go by before the House of Commons can vote on whether to accept the committee's report. The finding is a historic one and it paves the way for the Liberals, or any of the other opposition parties, to move a non-confidence motion on the matter and bring down Prime Minister Stephen Harper's minority government.

The procedure and house affairs committee began meeting early Monday morning to finalize a draft of the report that had been prepared over the weekend following two days of hearings last week. The committee was tasked with deciding whether the government breached the privilege of MPs by not supplying sufficient documentation on the estimated costs of corporate tax cuts, proposed crime legislation and the F-35 fighter jet procurement. Some amendments were made and the final report was made public Monday afternoon.

"This contempt report - a first in the history of Canada and the Commonwealth - is the result of the Harper regime's abuse of power," Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said in a statement. He added that the finding undermines the credibility of the federal budget that is set to be delivered Tuesday, because the government can't be trusted.

Lakewood Veteran Recalls Biggest Nuclear Blast Ever


Lakewood - This month marks the 57th anniversary of an event that shocked the world, but that few people remember. The largest nuclear bomb ever was exploded on one of the Marshall Islands as a U.S. Military test. Harry Kissleman of Lakewood witnessed it from a ship miles away. It was a day he will never forget.

Kisselman, 79, recently told 9NEWS about his experience. The test, in March of 1954, was called "Operation Castle Bravo." The military and Energy Department planned to explode the hydrogen bomb on Bikini Atoll, one of the Marshall Islands.

Kisselman was 22 at the time, and was a sailor on a ship that carried scientists and supplies to the site. On the day of the test, his ship was about 100 miles away. He says what he saw was a total shock.

"The sky lit up, just an ungodly purple and pink, mostly pinkish. Real bright. And all you could do, you couldn't even talk to anybody, was just watch it," he said.

UN official: Israel engaging in ethnic cleansing

Falk. Banned from Israel
Investigator Richard Falk says settlement expansion, consequent evicting of Palestinians 'intolerable'.

Israel's expansion of Jewish "settlements" in east Jerusalem and eviction of Palestinians from their homes there is a form of ethnic cleansing, a United Nations investigator said on Monday.

US academic Richard Falk was speaking to the UN Human Rights Council as it prepared to pass resolutions condemning Israeli behaviour on territory it has occupied since 1967.

The "continued pattern of settlement expansion in East Jerusalem combined with the forcible eviction of long-residing Palestinians are creating an intolerable situation" in the part of the city previously controlled by Jordan, he said.

Schizoid Declaration, Alan Dershowitz Style: Talmudic Logic for Beginners

Image

It is possible that when they circumcised Alan Dershowitz, they binned the wrong bit. Following the recent devastating chain of nuclear disasters in Japan, the lame Zionist advocate has managed to draw the most astonishing conclusion: "Israel Has the Right to Attack Iran's Nuclear Reactors Now".

Here is Dershowitz' fascinating, logical, algorithm for us to consider:
  1. "The recent disaster in Japan has shown the world the extraordinary dangers posed by nuclear radiation"
  2. "If Iran were to develop nuclear weapons, the next ship destined to Gaza might contain a nuclear dirty bomb"
  3. "A dirty bomb detonated in tiny Israel would cause incalculable damage to civilian life."

Comment: Interesting that Atzmon mentions circumcision. Perhaps it may explain how Alan Dershowitz reached his "astonishing conclusion".

From The Way of the Fool:
The first stage, or circuit, is the oral-passive-receptive, and is imprinted by what is perceived to be the mother or first mothering object. It can be conditioned by nourishment or threat, and is mostly concerned with bodily security. Trauma during this phase can cause an unconsciously motivated mechanical retreat from anything threatening to physical safety.

In recent times I have given a lot of thought to this particular circuit because of the matter of circumcision. Having come to the tentative idea that the whole Judeo-Christian monotheistic rant was a major control program, I came face to face with the question: how and why has it worked so well for so many thousands of years? More than that, how was it imposed in the first place?

I puzzled over this for weeks. I thought about several things that Friedrich Nietzsche had said that struck me like thunderbolts of truth once I was able to really step back and look at the matter:

Neitzsche wrote:
The Jews are the most remarkable nation of world history because, faced with the question of being or not being, they preferred, with a perfectly uncanny conviction, being at any price; the price they had to pay was the radical falsification of all nature, all naturalness, all reality, the entire inner world as well as the outer, They defined themselves counter to all those conditions under which a nation was previously able to live, was permitted to live; they made of themselves an antithesis of natural conditions - they inverted religion, religious worship, morality, history, psychology, one after the other, in an irreparable way into the contradiction of their natural values.[...]
The first "circuit" is concerned with what is safe and what is not safe. In our society, money is one of the primary items that is intimately tied to survival and biological security. Money represents survival. In addition to that, people who have been traumatized during the imprinting phase of the first circuit tend to view other people in an abstract way. It is "us and them." They also tend to be very easily threatened by disapproval of any sort because disapproval suggests the idea of extinction or loss of food supply. And, finally, those who have been negatively imprinted at this stage tend to have a chronic muscular armoring that prevents proper, relaxed breathing; they are "up tight."

One of the main characteristics of people who are heavily controlled by this circuit, or are "stuck" in this "oral phase", is that when they sense danger of any sort, whether actual or conceptual, all mental activity comes to a halt. Such people are chronically anxious and dependent - mostly on religion. They are not able to really understand what other people are feeling or what can happen in the future in regard to relationships, given a certain present situation. They only understand what is happening "now", and they can only feel what THEY feel. They cannot accurately grasp what others feel because they relate to others only as sensory objects."
"Us and them" world -view? Easily threatened by disapproval of any sort because disapproval suggests the idea of extinction or loss of food supply?

In this case, no wonder that the following description of schizoid personality from Political Ponerologyby Andrew Lobaczewski fits Zionists' attitude toward the rest of the World like a glove.
Literature provides us with descriptions of several varieties of this anomaly, whose existence can be attributed either to changes in the genetic factor or to differences in other individual characteristics of a non-pathological nature. Let us thus sketch these sub-species' common features.

Carriers of this anomaly are hypersensitive and distrustful, while, at the same time, pay little attention to the feelings of others. They tend to assume extreme positions, and are eager to retaliate for minor offenses. Sometimes they are eccentric and odd. Their poor sense of psychological situation and reality leads them to superimpose erroneous, pejorative interpretations upon other people's intentions.

They easily become involved in activities which are ostensibly moral, but which actually inflict damage upon themselves and others. Their impoverished psychological worldview makes them typically pessimistic regarding human nature. We frequently find expressions of their characteristic attitudes in their statements and writings: "Human nature is so bad that order in human society can only be maintained by a strong power created by highly qualified individuals in the name of some higher idea." Let us call this typical expression the "schizoid declaration".[...]

The quantitative frequency of this anomaly varies among races and nations: low among Blacks, the highest among Jews. Estimates of this frequency range from negligible up to 3 %. In Poland it may be estimated as 0.7 % of population. My observations suggest this anomaly is autosomally hereditary.

A schizoid's ponerological activity should be evaluated in two aspects. On the small scale, such people cause their families trouble, easily turn into tools of intrigue in the hands of clever and unscrupulous individuals, and generally do a poor job of raising children. Their tendency to see human reality in the doctrinaire and simplistic manner they consider "proper" - i.e. "black or white" - transforms their frequently good intentions into bad results. However, their ponerogenic role can have macrosocial implications if their attitude toward human reality and their tendency to invent great doctrines are put to paper and duplicated in large editions.

A 'Unique' Form of 'Terrorism'

Here is a thought experiment concerning two men who have issued money. One issued gold and silver coins that will today bring more in dollars than he charged for them. The other issued paper notes that are today worth but a fraction the gold or silver they were worth at the time they were issued. One man is facing the possibility of years in prison after a federal jury found his issuing of money to have been a crime. The other man is walking around free and being treated by the authorities with great deference.

Which is which?

Calling it "basically no more than five rectangular strips of paper," Fed chairman Ben Bernanke illustrates how much "$200" is actually worth.
It turns out that the man walking free is Benjamin Bernanke, the chairman of the Federal Reserve. A one-dollar note that his bank issued used to be worth - as recently as, say, the start of President Bush's first term - a 265th of an ounce of gold; today it's value has plunged to less than a 1,400th of an ounce of gold. The man who issued the coins that will fetch more dollars today than when he issued them is Bernard von NotHaus, 67. He called his coins "Liberty Dollars," minted them with some similarities to government money, and even though they more than held their value it turns out they're against the law.

Bernard von NotHaus, liberty dollar

Bernard von NotHaus
Von NotHaus promised a "spectacular trial" when, in 2007, he was interviewed by our Joseph Goldstein.* At the time von NotHaus was expecting to be indicted, as he eventually was, in connection with his minting of coins. His boast to our Mr. Goldstein was that he would "put this country's monetary system on trial." In the event, the trial of von NotHaus, which took place at Statesville, North Carolina, was over in but eight days. The jury deliberated but two hours before bringing in its verdict of guilty. It will stand for many as a lesson in the difficulties of illuminating the illogic of our monetary system.

Libya, Let's carpet bomb it - Turn it into a resort!

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Stout (DDG 55) launches a Tomahawk missile in support of Operation Odyssey Dawn. This was one of approximately 110 cruise missiles fired from U.S. and British ships and submarines that targeted about 20 radar and anti-aircraft sites along Libya's Mediterranean coast. Joint Task Force Odyssey Dawn is the U.S. Africa Command task force established to provide operational and tactical command and control of U.S. military forces supporting the international response to the unrest in Libya and enforcement of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1973.
You seen the heading, and I'm not going to sugar-coat this one, I've set aside a couple of articles I was working on to write on the upcoming invasion of Libya by the greatest destructive force for globalisation the modern world has seen...

I hadn't intended to write up this particular rant, but I've been felt ready to claw my own eyes out at the monumental level of UNFIXABLE BULLSHIT I'm being inundated with on my subscriptions and news feeds! So get this right now, huge problems out-with your control instil fear, panic and underlying layers of stress which ultimately weakens your resolve and cognitive ability to look for practical solutions while obsessing on those problems! And that is the point of the inundation of so much negativity, a veritable barrage of information which people are soaking in and fixating on, intelligent people for sure, but there it is. They are too busy looking way over there when we've got some pretty monumental battles right here to fight that we most certainly CAN get our teeth into.

One might do well to consider that a great deal of Libya's problems come from the crooks we've got over here in the UK, EU or the US, they can't do much about our crooks, there's a few dozen bad-ass armies armed to the teeth in between. So does that not mean we should be doing something about the corrupt sons of bitches? Just a thought...

It's going to be highly offensive to some and not my usual, not just in language as I'm not one for pointless crudity but this subject got under my skin, but also too in some rather graphic descriptions of a few realities of the barbarity of war that an ignorant Pro-War Statist and the useful idiot repeaters cannot or will not accept, those that get their entire world from purely mainstream sources when the crow about the 'necessity' of establishing this "no fly-zone" or "initiating regime-change" by any and "all necessary measures." They are wilfully ignorant of the harsh reality behind these little sound-bites, but let's not confuse ignorance of an alien understanding with a lack of intelligence because I don't. I just call them 'weekend warmongers'.

Gates: US expects to hand off Libya lead in days

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Sunday that the U.S. expects to turn control of the Libya military mission over to a coalition -- probably headed either by the French and British or by NATO -- "in a matter of days."

In his first public remarks since the start of the bombings, Gates said President Barack Obama felt very strongly about limiting America's role in the operation, adding that the president is "more aware than almost anybody of the stress on the military."


"We agreed to use our unique capabilities and the breadth of those capabilities at the front of this process, and then we expected in a matter of days to be able to turn over the primary responsibility to others," Gates told reporters traveling with him to Russia. "We will continue to support the coalition, we will be a member of the coalition, we will have a military role in the coalition, but we will not have the preeminent role."

The two key possibilities, he said, are a combined British-French command or the use of a NATO command. He acknowledged there is "some sensitivity on the part of the Arab League to being seen to be operating under a NATO umbrella."

NATO's top decision-making body approved late Sunday a military plan to implement the U.N. arms embargo on Libya, but failed to agree on a plan for the alliance to enforce the no-fly zone over this north African country.
