British girls were helped into Syria by spy from U.S.-led coalition

A spy who worked for a country in the U.S.-led coalition that is fighting Islamic State had helped three British girls to cross into Syria to join the militants and has been caught, the Turkish foreign minister said on Thursday.

The minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, told broadcaster A Haber in an interview: "He was caught. It turned out to be someone who works for the intelligence of a country from the coalition."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if the plan was to get these girls into Iraq, photograph them there with ISIS, then bring them back home to set them up as patsies for another false-flag terror attack.

Reports link Islamic State recruiter to Canadian Embassy in Jordan

Canada’s embassy in Jordan, which is run by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s handpicked ambassador and former top bodyguard, is being linked in news reports to an unfolding international terrorism and spy scandal. The federal government refused to comment Friday on multiple Turkish media reports that a foreign spy allegedly working for Canadian intelligence – and arrested in Turkey for helping three young British girls travel to Syria to join Islamic State militants – was working for the Canadian embassy in Amman, Jordan.

How Iran and the US intersect in “Syraq”

The self-described “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” Obama administration, with its rambling foreign policy, is driving the real Masters of the Universe who control the current world system absolutely crazy.

A cliffhanger debate will take place this Wednesday at the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Picture Secretary of State John Kerry, new Pentagon supremo Ashton Carter, and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey all testifying in the same room.

The meat of the matter: the House of Cards, sorry, US Congress mulling over what’s the real deal behind the Obama administration’s proposal to use “military force” in Syria, and whether to impose a no-fly zone to protect Syrian “rebels”.

Canadian spy said to be detained in Turkey for helping British teens join ISIS

Turkish authorities say they have detained a spy for helping three British girls join Islamic State, and reports say the detainee worked for Canada's spy agency.

Bill C-51 committee hears monologues, but few questions

A lot can be inferred as to someone's leanings on a particular topic by the questions they ask.

In the first hour of testimony at Thursday’s review of the government’s anti-terrorism bill, Conservative MPs posed only one question.

"Are you fundamentally opposed to taking terrorists off the streets?" Conservative MP Rick Norlock asked Carmen Cheung of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association — an echo of former public security minister Vic Toews’s "stand with us or with the child pornographers" statement.

NATO’s Shadow of Nazi Operation Barbarossa

Russia can perceive, rightly, the continuum of aggression.

NATO’s Operation Atlantic Resolve paced ahead this week with the latest arrival of more US military forces in the Baltic region.

Under the guise of defending eastern Europe from «Russian aggression», more than 100 Abrams tanks and Bradley armoured personnel carriers rolled into Latvia. Last month, a similar motorised display of military support was deployed in Estonia – in the town of Narva – with American flags flown by the US Army’s Second Calvary Regiment just 300 metres from the Russian border.

Impending Threat to Canadian Democracy: Harper Government’s “Anti-Terrorism Act” isn’t about Terrorism, it’s a Torture Act

The Harper government’s Bill C-51, or Anti-Terrorism Act, has been in the public domain for over a month. Long enough for us to know that it subverts basic principles of constitutional law, assaults rights of free speech and free assembly, and is viciously anti-democratic.

Leading digital rights organization throws support behind National Day of Action against the government's Secret Police Bill C-51

OpenMedia is encouraging Internet users across Canada to support events in over 35 cities this Saturday March 14

VANCOUVER, March 10, 2015 /CNW/ - Digital rights group OpenMedia is throwing its support behind a massive National Day of Action against Bill C-51 this Saturday March 14. Sparked by concerned citizens on social media platforms Facebook, and reddit, events are being organized right across Canada, from Victoria to Halifax. OpenMedia is supporting the day of action by launching an online action platform to empower those speaking out against C-51 at http://StopC51.ca

Public opinion is rapidly turning against the bill, with a recent EKOS opinion poll revealing that only 29% of Canadians would give up personal privacy safeguards in order to boost spy agency powers. Over 75,000 people have already spoken out online in recent weeks calling on Prime Minister Harper to rein in the unaccountable powers and violations of our civil liberties contained in Bill C-51.

Agent 'working for Canadian intelligence' has been arrested in Turkey for allegedly helping three British girls cross into Syria to join ISIS

The foreign spy arrested on suspicion of helping three British schoolgirls travel to Syria to join the Islamic State was working for the Canadian intelligence service, it has been reported.

Turkish foreign minister Mehmet Cavusoglu earlier said the suspect works for the intelligence agency of a country that is part of the US-led coalition fighting ISIS but did not identify the country, saying only that it was not the United States or a member of the European Union.

However, an Istanbul-based newspaper has reported that the spy was working for the Canadian government.

Bill C-51: Privacy watchdog Daniel Therrien blocked from committee witness list

The Commons public safety committee isn't planning to give the federal privacy watchdog the opportunity to share his concerns publicly with MPs over sweeping new information-sharing powers that would be given to national security agencies under the government's proposed anti-terror bill.

"At this point, we have not been invited," a spokeswoman for Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien told CBC News Wednesday.

"The commissioner has said that, given the significant implications for privacy, he would welcome an opportunity to appear to discuss his submission in more detail with committee members," Valerie Lawton said.

Toet’s terrorism mailout ‘a joke’

A local researcher denounced a mailed-out survey by Conservative MP Lawrence Toet as “a joke.”

Toet, who represents Elmwood-Transcona, tried to drum up support for the Conservatives' proposed anti-terrorism legislation C-51 and asked his constituents to check off one of the following two responses:

“I agree with my MP Lawrence Toet. We must take additional action to protect Canada from terrorism,” or “I disagree. Terrorists are victims too.”

“I got one the other night,” Probe Research vice-president Curtis Brown said Wednesday. “My wife and I had a chuckle about it ... 'Terrorists are victims, too' — that's what made me laugh.

“I took a picture of it and posted it on Twitter and now, everyone's outraged by this.”

Canadian defense minister tweets hoax photos from anti-Muslim hate sites

Muslims in Canada have strongly condemned their country’s defense minister for tweeting hoax photographs purporting to depict enslavement and oppression of women and girls by Muslim men. This comes amid accusations that the government is deliberately stoking anti-Muslim sentiment in the country.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims said the tweets by Minister of National Defense Jason Kenney were “corrosive” and “inflammatory” and provided “another example of our elected leaders, at best, ignorantly conflating Islam and Muslims with extremism and terrorism, and at worst, deliberately attempting to score political points by stoking divisions among Canadians.”

Removing Israel from American politics

It is writing such as this, which illustrates and illuminates the extent of Zionist infiltration in the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave," which will drive home to the "American" public what has happened to their "dream, which may eventually stir them to action of some sort to bring it to an end... if anything will!

It is certainly past time to push back against an organization that is brazenly promoting the interests of a foreign government at the expense of the American people.

Shutting Down AIPAC

I would like to concentrate on two issues. First is the nature of the special relationship between Israel and the United States and second is the role of the Israel Lobby and most particularly AIPAC in shaping that relationship.

That’s the only way you can have international affairs. So I will accept the commitment of the U.S. government, the U.S. administration, about what– going to do. And I will– I mean if they have an agreement, I will hold them accountable.

Nuland’s Mastery of Ukraine Propaganda

So, did Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland mislead Congress or just play a propaganda game, asks Robert Parry.

An early skill learned by Official Washington’s neoconservatives, when they were cutting their teeth inside the U.S. government in the 1980s, was how to frame their arguments in the most propagandistic way, so anyone who dared to disagree with any aspect of the presentation seemed unpatriotic or crazy.

During my years at The Associated Press and Newsweek, I dealt with a number of now prominent neocons who were just starting out and mastering these techniques at the knee of top CIA psychological warfare specialist Walter Raymond Jr., who had been transferred to President Ronald Reagan’s National Security Council staff where Raymond oversaw inter-agency task forces that pushed Reagan’s hard-line agenda in Central America and elsewhere.

Saving World Heritage – the West’s New R2P Pretext

The ideological arsenal of pretexts for US military interventions are depleted, redundant, spent or thoroughly disgraced.

Is the defence of world heritage sites in Iraq the new «responsibility to protect» (R2P) doctrine to justify Western intervention in the geo-strategically important region? The timing coincides with renewed admonitions from the United States and Saudi Arabia for a coalition of ground forces to defeat the Islamic State network in Iraq and Syria – and just when Iraqi and Syrian forces appear to be decisively pushing back the extremists in both countries.

The US and its Western allies have long used the doctrine of «responsibility to protect» or «R2P» as a flimsy pretext for military intervention.They found success with various tropes, including the «War on Terror», the elimination of «weapons of mass destruction», and the Responsibility to Protect» human rights.

Getting Past the Issue of Being Jewish

In the United States we may be approaching a tipping point in the struggle against Zionist racism and Israeli oppression.

The struggle is against racism, discrimination, oppression, occupation and illegal colonization because they are evils no matter who perpetrates them.

The Israeli case has to be prioritized because Israel and its Zionist allies have bought and bullied our own government and political parties in a corrupting manner.

Slash-and-Burn to Oblivion - The Technocorporate Empire State Strikes Back

Now-failed states like Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya are the blueprint for a world order modeled on the principles of a slash-and-burn corporate structure that seeks to eliminate “non-performers” from its vast portfolio. Surplus labor worldwide has been given the pink slip in the form of an order of execution, and condemned to live out its numbered days warehoused in squalor. Israel’s once refined methods of incremental genocide has now evolved into a more efficient method of mass extermination for its one-time cheap labor force, now permanently confined in the world’s largest prison on land coveted for an emerging class of settler-property developers. Whether these “non-performers” reside in the Gaza strip, housed in some US immigration detention center, or “loitering” on some pre-gentrified patch of concrete, the memo from HQ is explicit in its downsizing imperatives worldwide.

The Power of Israel over the United States

There is much idle chatter from liberals, leftists and progressives, claiming that Netanyahu’s ‘brazen intervention’would backfire;

There have been times when history has played tricks with man and…has magnified the features of essentially small persons into a parody of greatness--Rabindranath Tagore(on Benito Mussolini)

How is it that the ruler (Benjamin Netanyahu) of a puny country (Israel) of 8.2 million (6.2 million Jews) with the 37th biggest economy (GDP in current prices) in the world dictates war policy and secures the willing submission of the legislature of the largest economy and most powerful military empire in the world?

What significance does Netanyahu’s speech to the US Congress have, beyond the fact that he uses it as a platform to attack the elected President of the US, to denounce US peace negotiations and to demand that Congress adopt policies designed to precipitate a war with Iran?

Circumstances of Canadian soldier's death in Iraq strongly suggest Harper Government is lying

After our long , painful and expensive Afghanistan experience, Canadians obviously want no part in a ground war in the Middle East or Asia. We have made this clear, and the government has responded -- against its instincts -- by not remaining in Afghanistan and promising us that Canadian troops will not get involved on the ground in Iraq.

For this reason, the Harper Government has been careful to claim, repeatedly, that the Canadian special-ops soldiers are there as non-combatants to train and advise soldiers of the Kurdish Peshmerga, far behind the front lines of the fight with ISIS.

So what was a party of four Canadian soldiers doing Friday inside the combat zone?

Berlin Rumbles Washington’s Hidden War Agenda

Berlin and the rest of Europe need to move fast to underpin diplomacy with Russia and to head off Washington’s death-wish plunge into the abyss.

Washington’s reckless attempts to scuttle the shaky ceasefire in Ukraine are unnerving Germany. The German government feels, with good reason, that the Americans are trying to undermine its recent efforts to mediate a political solution to the nearly year-old conflict, which has caused at least 6,000 deaths and up to one million refugees. Not only that but the violence between the ultranationalist regime in Kiev and the pro-Russian separatists in the east is threatening to spillover into a wider war that could involve Russia and the rest of Europe.

Canadian soldier killed & 3 more wounded by Kurds in friendly fire incident in Northern Iraq

OTTAWA—A group of Canadian soldiers had successfully passed several Kurdish checkpoints and were approaching an observation post exactly as discussed with local troops hours earlier when a nervous Kurd with a quick trigger finger opened fire on the patrol, the Star has learned.

The Canadians were less than 100 metres from the post when they were cut down by the friendly fire, according to a military source.

“The notion that we somehow ‘surprised’ them by being there is not accurate,” a military source said.

Israel Shamir: Who Killed Nemtsov

The Russians are worried that pro-Western neoliberal party will regain the positions they lost after 2000, and dead Nemtsov will indeed be more useful for his cause than alive one.

Anyway, while the mourning and the funeral did not cause any breach of peace, the march did not turn into a Maidan or Tahrir, and Bernard Henri Levi did not land on the Red Square, the Putin’s government got cold feet. For a long eight days Russian police looked for the murderers, and meanwhile the Yeltsin’s cadres, people of nineties assaulted Putin from within and the Western media and officials from without. President Putin is not a Genghis Khan, he is a non-confrontational bloke whose great ambition is to live in peace and harmony with the West while defending Russia’s vital interests, and observing interests of Russia’s wealthies and worthies. He also wants to be accepted as an equal among the world’s great, East and West.

We saved Jews 3 times, Netanyahu should revise history lessons – Iranian FM

Iran has no intention of destroying Israel and has actually saved the Jews three times in history, but the current Israeli regime is a threat to Tehran, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said.

“Israel threatens to use force against Iran almost on a daily basis… Of course, if they did use force against Iran, we would defend ourselves, as we have done with great sacrifice in the past. But we are not invading, we are not threatening anybody. We have not threatened anybody for 250 years,” the Iranian FM said.

“We never had the bomb. We will never have a bomb. We’re not looking to have a bomb. We do not believe a bomb is in our interest. Whereas [Netanyahu] does have a bomb. He has 200 nuclear weapons,” he said.

Canadian soldier killed by friendly fire in Iraq

OTTAWA—Canada’s military mission in Iraq has turned deadly after Iraqi Kurdish troops fired on an approaching group of Canadian soldiers, killing one and wounding three others in a tragic mix-up.

The friendly-fire death marks the first Canadian fatality since the mission to battle Islamic extremists began last fall.

Three other members were injured and are being treated, the military said in a statement.

CANADIAN PUBLISHER FACES JAIL FOR POLITICAL WRITINGS! PLEASE DONATE!

My name is Arthur Topham and I am the owner, publisher and editor of the online alternative News site RadicalPress.com which has been operating in Canada for the past sixteen years. Over the last eight years I have been involved in legal battles with the Canadian government, first the Canadian Human Rights Commission and now the federal legal system over alleged offences that purportedly violate Canada's "Hate Propaganda" laws. At this point in time I have expert legal help preparing Charter applications but in terms of raising the necessary $15,000 to cover all the costs of hiring competent legal counsel to present the applications here in Quesnel, the results thus far have proven to be rather disheartening with only $2000.00 having been raised since early November of 2014.

Toronto Star: Harper's terror fixation draws attention from Canada's failing economy

Two issues dominate Canadian politics. One is talked about. The other is not.

The one talked about is terrorism. It is the topic of the day.

Politicians furiously debate the government’s new anti-terror bill. Does it go too far? Would it do any good if passed?

Or, perversely, would it make matters worse?

The issue that is not much talked about any more — at least by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government — is the economy.

At a fundamental level, the economy is failing. Any number of studies point to this fact. The latest was released this week by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

Washington Yanks British Bulldog into Line

The gross interference by Washington in Britain’s forthcoming election on the vital issue of budgetary priorities clearly demonstrates that British «democracy» is but an appendage to an American leash. And the leash is being yanked to pull the snarling bulldog into line.

In a brazen show of bringing-to-heel in their «special relationship», American political and Pentagon chiefs are openly rebuking the British government to maintain its huge military spend on the NATO alliance – to the possible detriment of already withering public services in austerity-clobbered Britain. The imposition by Washington raises serious questions about the nature of democracy in Britain – the self-proclaimed «Mother of all Parliaments».

Disney vacation turns to nightmare for Mississauga family

A customs supervisor later told the family they were being denied entry to the U.S. and asked them to sign papers to declare they were withdrawing their applications for admission, he said. Al-Rawi refused and asked for a reason.

“He said, ‘You are not going to your trip because we have doubts if you are going to return to Canada after the trip,’” said Al-Rawi, who spent more than five years working to earn an Ontario medical licence and restart his stalled practice in Canada.

United States Customs and Border Protection refused to comment on the Al-Rawi incident, but said travellers are responsible for proving their innocence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has gone back to Code Napoleonic justice, where the government can declare you guilty without proof, and demand you prove a negative. This from the exact same United States Customs and Border Protection that has turned a blind eye to millions of illegal immigrants pouring into this nation with no intention of ever returning home.

And let us be honest, if Dr. Firas Al-Rawi wanted to stay in the United States, how is that a bad thing given his expertise as an emergency room doctor; certainly far more desirable a citizen than the uneducated, unskilled, and occasionally infectious illegals Obama just amnestied?

Quebec man charged for not giving up phone password at border

A law professor in Halifax says the case of a Quebec man charged with obstructing border officials raises a new legal question in Canada.

The accused, 38-year-old Alain Philippon of Ste-Anne-des-Plaines, Que., refused to divulge his smart phone password to Canada Border Services Agency during a customs search.

Philippon arrived in Halifax Monday night on a flight from Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

Rob Currie is the director of the Law and Technology Institute at the Schulich School of Law. He says under the law, travellers crossing the Canadian border have a reduced expectation of privacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What do they expect to find on a smart phone in an age where real criminals and terrorists know their smart phones can be searched? This whole operation, in addition to being a violation of privacy laws, is a complete waste of time and money! Real criminals and terrorists will use other means to transport their data!

Amid Media Blackout, Canada Lawsuit Challenges Banker Rule

According to American monetary-reform author and filmmaker Bill Still—and Canadian activists with whom AFP has been in contact—Canada’s mainstream media has been suppressing news that the three-judge panel on Jan. 26 ruled in favor of plaintiffs who filed suit to restore the Bank of Canada to its time-tested mandate of issuing debt-free money in the public interest.

Reporting on his online news-site which covers monetary reform, Mr. Still remarked: “The [Canadian] government has ordered the mainstream media not to cover this.”

The ruling gives plaintiffs William Krehm and Ann Emmett of COMER, or the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform, represented by attorney Rocco Galati, the ability to move forward toward trial. The Crown can appeal once more to Canada’s Supreme Court.

This is a very significant story but you probably haven’t heard of it. Why?

Canada Quietly Tiptoeing into Ukraine Civil War

As debate over Canada’s role in the latest Iraq war rages, Ottawa is quietly being drawn into a second, more dangerous, conflict.

That second war is in Ukraine. The U.S. and Britain are sending military advisers there to help Ukraine’s embattled central government fight Moscow-backed secessionists. Defence Minister Jason Kenney says Canada might do the same.

Kenney told both Global News and the CBC that any Canadian soldiers in Ukraine would stay far away from the fighting.

This, of course, is the same assurance that the government gave last fall when it dispatched 69 commandos to advise Kurdish troops in Iraq. As it turned out, those advisers did end up under fire on the front lines.

COMER UPDATE - Federal Court of Appeal Decision — January 26, 2015

Since the Federal Court of Appeal fully upheld the decision of Justice Russell dated April 24, 2014, Justice Russell’s decision stands. I refer everyone to my summary of that decision on COMER’s website.

What that means is that we are entitled to proceed with our action, subject to me drafting and filing an amended Statement of Claim with the Federal Court, which will be done shortly.

In short, and in summary, the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal is a victory for COMER to proceed. (While the government can seek leave of the Federal Court of Appeal’s decision to the Supreme Court of Canada, to date no such indication has been conveyed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those just finding out about COMER (which Canada has been trying to block and ban from both corporate and independent media) , the Bank of Canada is supposed to provide interest-free loans to the Canadian governments for infrastructure development. But starting in the 1970s, the Canadian government started getting their loans from privately owned banks, and forcing Canadian taxpayers to pay the interest! The COMER lawsuit seeks to force the Canadian government to avail itself of the interest-free loans mandated by the charter for the Bank of Canada, and so far the courts have agreed that COMER is correct.

The Canadian government has banned this subject from the Canadian corporate media, and emails from Canada report that links to stories about COMER are blocked inside Canada as well. This is to keep the Canadian people from finding out about this scandal as they would likely ask why the Canadian government would do such a thing, and so far the only answer seems to be, "We decided to loot the taxpayers and give it to the private banks because the private bankers write really generous campaign donation checks every election!"

Needless to say, this would not sit very well with the already over-taxed Canadian people!

Ralph Nader: Stephen Harper is selling the politics of fear

A former candidate for the U.S. presidency has come down hard on the Canadian government's new anti-terrorism bill, calling it a crass effort to "sell the politics of fear."

Ralph Nader says Prime Minister Stephen Harper is exaggerating the threat of Islamic terrorism and his paranoia has now exceeded "Washington's chief attack dog, former vice-president Dick Cheney" — and he has written a letter to Harper to express his concerns.

HSBC Documents Show Bank Helped Clients Hide Billions From Tax Man

British bank HSBC helped hundreds of Canadians hide Swiss accounts from authorities to avoid paying millions of dollars in taxes, CBC News has learned.

That’s one of the takeaways gleaned from a massive collection of documents collected by Hervé Falciani, a former employee of the bank, who blew the whistle on his former employer and handed over reams of data to tax authorities.

Alberta tar sands pollution suspected in rare cancer cases

In 2006, Canadian doctor John O’Connor made a startling realization. Specialists had diagnosed three of his patients in the northern Alberta village of Fort Chipewyan with cholangiocarcinoma — a deadly cancer of the bile duct. The same cancer had killed his own father years earlier in Ireland.

Only about one in 100,000 Canadians contracts this type of cancer, so the likelihood of three cases in a town of about 950 was minuscule. O’Connor suspected pollution from Alberta’s tar sands, 100 miles upstream from Fort Chipewyan on the Athabasca River. Since then, the provincial government, while confirming an additional case of bile duct cancer and high rates of lung and cervical cancer, has yet to investigate further.

9 weirdest things about this RCMP intelligence report on the "anti-petroleum movement"

First reported in La Presse, and again Monday in the Globe and Mail, the RCMP report dated January 2014 warns of "a growing, highly organized and well-financed anti-Canada petroleum movement that consists of peaceful activists, militants and violent extremists who are opposed to society's reliance on fossil fuels."

The report surfaces amidst fresh debate in Parliament over the Tories new anti-terror legislation and its potential use against groups involved in peaceful protest and legitimate dissent. The Harper government already has a proven track record for gathering intelligence on opponents of the oil sands.

Canada must own up to its complicity in torture

Shortly after the Senate’s torture report surfaced, the Canadian government quickly denied any complicity.

“It has nothing whatsoever to do with the Government of Canada,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in Parliament.

“Canada doesn’t torture anyone. Period! Period!” Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said, refusing to answer whether Canada uses torture-tainted information.

There’s a reason why he ignored the question. The facts tell us that Canada is complicit in the torture of detainees and has been doing everything it can to cover its dirty hands.

Ottawa keeping secret details of secret terror watch with Five Eyes allies

A veil of secrecy has dropped around a series of immigration information-sharing agreements between Canada and its “Five Eyes” allies.

In Washington this week, Francis Taylor, Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis, informed a congressional committee that “with the Five Country Conference — which includes Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom — we have concluded immigration information sharing agreements that reduce the likelihood that a person applying for asylum or a visa in any of the five countries who has an illicit past could hide that history.”

Testifying about the threat of foreign fighters and homegrown terror, Taylor said in addition to those agreements, Washington has built ties with other allies to improve its ability to detect terror threats or returning foreign fighters.

RCMP unlawfully seized guns during Alberta floods: Report

RCMP officers acted outside of the law when they conducted warrantless searches and seizures of firearms during the southern Alberta floods of 2013, according to an independent report.

The seizures angered many residents of High River, just south of Calgary.

The report, issued by the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission on Thursday, found that RCMP members performed "warrantless searches and seizures of firearms from some of the evacuated homes."

Mounties have claimed they don't need warrants to seize firearms and that they only took guns that were unsecured or improperly stored and in plain view.

Keystone pipeline clears Congress, sets up Obama veto

Congress gave final approval to the Keystone XL pipeline on Wednesday, clearing the bill for President Obama, who has vowed a veto.

The House voted 270-152 to pass the bill, which had already passed the Senate late last month. Twenty-nine Democrats joined with all but one Republican in backing the pipeline in the House.

Keystone would bring oil from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, into the U.S. where it will be refined and then shipped.

Restore the Bank of Canada

The Bank of Canada, unlike the Federal Reserve in the U.S., is wholly owned by the people of Canada. It was nationalized in 1938 and was used very successfully to fund infrastructure, social programs, education, etc, for the benefit of all Canadians. It was used to bring us out of the depression, funded WWII, to build highways such as the McDonald-Cartier freeway, public transportation systems, subway lines, airports, the St. Lawrence Seaway, our universal healthcare system and our Canada Pension Plan.

Unfortunately, since Canada adopted economist Milton Friedman’s theory of monetarism in 1974 this has not been the case and one can track the progression of the dismantling of Canada since then.

Canadians Sued The Bank Of Canada & Won. Mainstream Media & Government Blacks Out Story

Recently, constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati won yet another round of appeals set forth by the Bank of Canada in a case involving two Canadians who filed an action in federal court to restore The Bank of Canada to its original purpose and operations. This is a very significant story but you probably haven’t heard of it. Why? The mainstream media and government have blacked out the story for reasons that appear to stem from fear of how the public will react to realizing they’ve been systematically enslaved for decades.

The Case to “Reinstate” the Bank of Canada

There is a very interesting legal case that is playing out in Canada at the moment. William Krehm, Anne Emmett, and COMER (The Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform: http://www.comer.org/) filed a lawsuit on December 12th, 2011, in Federal Court to try to force a restoration of the Bank of Canada to its mandated purposes. In essence, they want the Bank of Canada to provide interest-free loans to the federal, provincial, and municipal governments, as provided for in the Bank of Canada Act.

The largest Palestinian civil society coalition has condemned Canada’s escalating “disinformation campaign and repressive measures against the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights.”

“Rather than seeking to hold Israel to account for its war crimes during the recent military assault on Gaza and its intensified colonization of the occupied West Bank,” the Canadian government “is further deepening its collaboration with Israel’s occupation and launching a shameful, propagandistic attack on free speech in the process,” Rafeef Ziadah, a member of the Boycott National Commitee (BNC) secretariat, said in statement.

The Case to "Reinstate" the Bank of Canada

There is a very interesting legal case that is playing out in Canada at the moment. William Krehm, Anne Emmett, and Comer (The Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform: http://www.comer.org/) filed a lawsuit on December 12th, 2011, in Federal Court to try to force a restoration of the Bank of Canada to its mandated purposes. In essence, they want the Bank of Canada to provide interest-free loans to the federal, provincial, and municipal governments, as provided for in the Bank of Canada Act. This money would be used to finance public expenditures whenever there is a budgetary deficit. Apparently, the federal government used to borrow interest-free (to at least some extent) from the Bank of Canada up until 1974. At present, governments borrow all of the necessary money (apart from any bonds they may sell to the public) from private banks at the going rate of interest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This case is worth keeping in the public eye, especially since I am getting emails from Canadian readers that links to these stories are being blocked in Canada.

The wealth of the private central bankers rests on a simple mechanism of taking control of a nation's currency and then issuing all of that currency as a loan at interest. This mechanism guarantees immense wealth to the bankers and perpetual debt-slavery to the people. Canada's Central Bank was created with the requirement that loans to the national, provincial and municipal government be made interest-free, but starting in 1974 the Bank of Canada abandoned that principle, reaping huge profits from the Canadian taxpayer for loaning money that like all private central bank money is created out of thin air. This lawsuit seeks to return the Bank of Canada to the original rules, and possibly repay the illegally collected interest. Because the Bank of Canada clearly and openly violated the rules, the courts have so far found for the plaintiffs. The Private Central Bankers are in a panic, not only because of the potential loss of money, but because this case is calling attention to how these private central banks, and other people in other nations are starting to ask why their own banks are not operated the same way so as to reduce the taxpayer burden.

Here in the United States, the question every taxpayer should be asking right now is why, when the Constitution authorizes the Federal Government to create and issue a debt-free currency, why that government persists in borrowing created-out-of-thin-air money from a privately-owned central bank at interest, plunging the people into hopelessly unpayable debt. The inevitable answer is always the greed of the Private Central Bankers aided by the complicity of hopelessly corrupt politicians.

HISTORICAL COURT RULING IN CANADA AGAINST PRIVATE CENTRAL BANKING

Court Demands Bank Of Canada return to it's original mandate issuing it's currency Debt free Harper Government orders MEDIA BLACKOUT of this case

Feb 03 12:15

Banking on serious reform

Why do Canadians allow private banks to profit off our public debt when the Bank of Canada is legislated to provide low- or no-interest loans for human capital and infrastructure spending? The Bank of Canada has not issued such loans since 1974, after it funded Canada out of the Great Depression, the Second World War, the infrastructure boom, universal health care, universities and colleges, CBC and more. Monday, three judges upheld the previous ruling of justiciability. The next step is to determine the statutes of the Bank of Canada Act and if they have been subverted by conspiracy.

The monopoly of private banks' exclusive privilege of lending money to governments will, for the second time in our history, soon be put on trial. The first time it was debated in the House of Commons, it led to the creation of the Bank of Canada. It's time to restore the Bank of Canada and jail the banksters.
