Thanks to this satirical article on the Beaverton, about the radical Leftist professors and administrators at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada, who forced a grad teaching assistant into tears when they confronted her for playing a clip from Ontario’s public broadcaster, of a debate with professor Jordan Peterson, Americans are now discovering Canada’s version of The Onion, The Beaverton.

“WATERLOO, ON – Officials at Wilfrid Laurier University are launching a probe to determine how a TA who showed her students a clip from The Agenda became exposed to the extremist organization and its radical leader, Steve Paikin.

The clip featured a debate on the use of gender neutral pronouns. The university is still trying to ascertain how the TA got hold of such a graphic and disturbing clip.

AlexaAccording to Alexa.com, as of May 12, 2013, FauxCapitalist.com, a part-time, unpaid effort, had a 3-month ranking of 181,062th place among all websites accessed from the United States.

This compares with a 3-month worldwide rating of 90,706th place for the Daily Bell, whose founder admitted to working for large international banks, despite portraying itself as an alternative site, and was later proven to have lied about their numbers.

The Daily Bell likes to talk a lot about efficiencies of the free market, and despite them trying to shoot the messenger and blaming Alexa’s ranking system only after their ranking started tanking, the free market is showing that more Americans are opting for more efficient websites from a cost-benefit analysis than all visitors are to theirs.

Investigate 9/11A fellow Canadian linked to my article, What didn’t happen on 9/11, with the misunderstanding that I was promoting “the theory that 9/11 wasn’t actually a terrorist attack.”

No, it was definitely a terrorist attack, but the question is who were the terrorists.

The author responded to two of my comments with predictable diversionary tactics, in not refuting the accuracy of my assertions.

Then, this reader chimed in concerning my comments:

As for 9/11, James is right. Any official video would no doubt be dismissed as fake by people who wanted to believe otherwise to advance whatever agenda they may have (see landing, moon).

I responded with:

Why deal in generalities when we have specifics?

An official video did come out — the problem is, it’s missing a date and timestamp, so we’re just supposed to assume it was of one of the alleged hijackers boarding Flight 77 at Dulles at the time they said.

Then, there’s the still frame of Atta and another alleged terrorist, with two timestamps, and it’s actually from Portland airport, not Logan, where they allegedly took off.

It’s sad how too many fellow Canadians, including this one, still slavishly cling to the official 9/11 conspiracy theory, despite the lack of the psychological barrier facing Americans, of confronting complicity by elements within their own government.

A dollar-sign image. This image is used in use...

A caller to The Bob Tuskin Show on Oracle Broadcasting made an excellent point about free enterprise versus capitalism on the November 10, 2011 episode (starting at 1:38:25):

A lot of Americans don’t realize that this country was never a capitalist country; it’s a free enterprise country. Ah, capitalism was thrown around and sold to the public, the same way most Americans are saying, ‘we’re a democracy.’ The United States is not a democracy; it’s a republic. Capitalism is this, another ‘ism’ that was created to eat up the free enterprise and create a monopoly.

The guest, Abby Martin of MediaRoots.org and Project Censored, realized the caller brought up something important, and said she should look into it.

American Flag on Canada Day 2008

While generally regarded as having a more intrusive government than the United States, the reality in Canada since 9/11 is far different, and the undertaking of the census is one such example.

While Americans had census workers going onto their property with GPS systems in 2010, Canadians received a one-page form in their mailboxes in May 2011, courtesy of Canada Post, asking them to fill it out online, or to call a toll-free number to get a hardcopy.

As a result of the governing Conservatives policy change in 2010, the “long-form” census is now optional for those Canadians selected to participate, and it is only mandatory to answer some basic questions, including your address, phone number, age, sex, the number of residents, and language-related questions specifically required in pursuance of Canada’s official policy of bilingualism.

In the United States, however, some Americans were required to answer many more questions, despite their Constitution stating that the census is only supposed to be an enumeration of residents for the purpose of determining representation in the House of Representatives, and the apportionment of direct taxes.

Donald Trump

I believe that today’s developments in the ‘birther’ issue is instructive for us with the AIDS scam.

Regardless of whether Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or not, he spent over $2 million dollars in the past three years to fight court cases that demanded he prove his natural born citizenship eligibility requirement by producing his long-form birth certificate, long after producing his purported short-form certification of live birth online during the 2008 presidential campaign.

The mass media, including the so-called pro-Republican and conservative Fox News, repeatedly wrote off all legitimate and well-intentioned inquiry into the issue. That is, until a man by the name of Donald Trump with his billions of dollars and mass media stardom started polling at the top of Republican presidential candidates for 2012.

My take home message from all this is that until someone big steps up to confront the AIDS scam in a similar way, I don’t see this scam getting effectively exposed and challenged in a big way until enough average people feel directly threatened by it in a significant manner. Given that most Americans didn’t feel directly threatened by the ‘birther’ issue, it likely would’ve continued to languish outside of the mainstream had it not been for the actions of Trump.
