This is a good article detailing the shift from English Canada in having a primarily British identity from inception in 1867 until the 1960s, to what PM Justin Trudeau and others want to see as Canada being the world’s first post-national state based on alleged shared values.
. . . no, not Canada Day, but Dominion Day, the true name of the day that commemorates Confederation, the founding of our country, whose full, legal name is the Dominion of Canada. Its ersatz replacement, “Canada Day” or “Jour Fete du Canada”, was passed one late Friday after noon in Parliament but less than the thirteen member legal quorum by Pierre Trudeau’s Liberals.
It will never be “Canada Day,” at least not in my heart, damn it!
And that’s not the worst of it. Beginning with his predecessor, Lester Pearson, Canada’s traditions have been destroyed, one by one, by the Liberals, starting with the flag. Canada’s true historical flag is the Red Ensign, with a Union Jack in the upper right, for the simple reason that Canada was and is a British product, but all traces of our British heritage are being removed, starting with the flag, now replaced…

Here is a graph I created on the causes of hate crimes, based on the causes of rape meme, which exposes the hypocrisy of the corporate mass media in attempting to link alleged or real hate crimes in the UK to the democratic majority Brexit vote. Help it to go viral!

Here are some of my thoughts on the successful Brexit vote, shared on the Facebook page for Exposing Faux Capitalism:
- Corporate mass media hypocrisy: When democratic referendums are in favour of being part of some bigger political union, they want to move on after saying how great the outcome was, yet, in the rare case that voters go against that, like with Brexit, the democratic majority is minimized for the sake of divide and conquer, pitting older against younger, and accusing what would only represent a small minority, of racist motives.
- Leftist Brexit inconsistency, which I’ve noticed even with local mass media: Saying how bad the Brexit outcome is, yet ignoring the EU’s well-known democratic deficit.
- Someone on a group I follow was so concerned yesterday about the pound dropping around 10% overnight to a 30-year low. Let’s put this in perspective. The Dow Jones fluctuated around 5% several days during the 2008 financial crisis, especially when the House initially voted down the bankster bailout bill, yet the bleeding stopped by March 2010 and the Dow is now historically high. Iceland’s currency dropped by 80% in just 4 months, but the good news was they didn’t have to pay for any of the bad loans that their private banks made. Britain had no business being in the EU in the first place, and their membership isn’t essential.
- Good that Brexit has put an end for the UK to the silly EU passport policy where someone coming from Eastern Europe, for instance, had an easier time getting into the UK than someone from a Commonwealth country who is fluent in English.

Congratulations to the UK on voting to leave the EU. Charles de Gaulle did you all a favour in vetoing entry twice, and now the voters overturned what their self-aggrandizing politicians have been doing since the 70s.

With word that Trump has revoked the press credentials of the Washington Post for appearing in an official capacity at any of his events, and criticism of that from the usual quarters, I couldn’t help but recall what I learned perhaps only about five to six years ago, about “America’s greatest President,” Abraham Lincoln, arresting critical newspaper editors.
In fact, here’s Lincoln’s official Executive Order on the matter (emphasis mine):
“Whereas there has been wickedly and traitorously printed and published this morning in the New York World and New York Journal of Commerce, newspapers printed and published in the city of New York, a false and spurious proclamation purporting to be signed by the President and to be countersigned by the Secretary of State, which publication is of a treasonable nature, designed to give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States and to the rebels now at war against the Government and their aiders and abettors, you are therefore hereby commanded forthwith to arrest and imprison in any fort or military prison in your command the editors, proprietors, and publishers of the aforesaid newspapers, and all such persons as, after public notice has been given of the falsehood of said publication, print and publish the same with intent to give aid and comfort to the enemy; and you will hold the persons so arrested in close custody until they can be brought to trial before a military commission for their offense. You will also take possession by military force of the printing establishments of the New York World and Journal of Commerce, and hold the same until further orders, and prohibit any further publication therefrom.“
And before that, America’s second president, John Adams, signed the blatantly unconstitutional “Alien and Sedition Acts,” which made it a punishable crime to be critical of the federal government.
Unlike Adams and Lincoln, Trump is still a private citizen. When he’s President, then starts banning various press agencies, then let’s put things in historical perspective and judge what a violator of the First Amendment he truly is, and decide on the appropriate remedy.

This is the way to do it, questioning claims uncritically put forth by the mass media, without resorting to much speculation for a general and big audience.

I was just talking yesterday with someone about some interesting provisions in the Canada’s Criminal Code, included from a bygone era, where the purpose of criminal law was really appreciated and codified, of fundamentally protecting individual freedom, versus making the state supreme.
One of them I was aware of going all the way back to 2009, from the work of Robert Menard, and it turns out that it had actually been repealed in 2012.
Here it was before repeal, in Section 39:
“Defence with claim of right
39 (1) Every one who is in peaceable possession of personal property under a claim of right, and every one acting under his authority, is protected from criminal responsibility for defending that possession, even against a person entitled by law to possession of it, if he uses no more force than is necessary.
Defence without claim of right
(2) Every one who is in peaceable possession of personal property, but does not claim it as of right or does not act under the authority of a person who claims it as of right, is not justified or protected from criminal responsibility for defending his possession against a person who is entitled by law to possession of it.“
And here is what the 2012 repeal legislation said:
“39 [Repealed, 2012, c. 9, s. 2]“
More on the significance and other interesting current and former provisions in a future post.
