In the run-up to the October 19, 2015 Canadian federal election, I found these two federal all-candidates sessions to be very interesting.

This one in the riding of Fundy Royal, New Brunswick is interesting because the independent candidate, David Amos, looks like Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings, and he has some intelligent things to say.

And this one from the riding of Thornhill, Ontario is interesting, because only three candidates showed up, so the Libertarian candidate, Gene Balfour, gets to have a lot of talking time, speaking to the big government Liberal and NDP candidates, in an interactive way that you almost never see, and he schools them on the benefits of a more libertarian society.

Dr. Stan MonteithDr. Stan Monteith, a 49-year veteran of the true conservative movement, said that most conservative organizations have been infiltrated, and that some people are pretending to be his friend in order to alter the way he looks at things, including his support for Ron Paul, on his January 11, 2012 broadcast (starting at 46:22):

As I’ve told you in the past, many times, most of the conservative organizations, most of the liberal organizations, most of the Christian organizations have been infiltrated. And many of the individuals — the outspoken and very good leaders of our country — have somebody planted very close to them to alter the way they look at things. And they’ve done this with me, they’ve done it with everybody I know. But I think a few people are smart enough to see through it. I think Joyce can see through it, I think Alex can see through it. Hopefully I’m smart enough to realize that there are people out there who pretend to be my friends, who are really there doing everything they can to ingratiate themselves with me, but they’re really pushing the opposite of freedom.

For more on Dr. Stan Monteith’s statements based on his 49-year experience in the true conservative movement, see my articles here.

The New logo for the Toronto sun

The Toronto Sun, one of Toronto’s four daily newspapers, is rightly called a tabloid newspaper.

Someone with whom I had some lively email exchanges regarding the Canadian economy and form of government compared to the United States once sent me a link to a particular article in the Sun, and I called it a tabloid paper.

A giveaway that it’s a tabloid paper is when it had a front-page picture of former federal Liberal Party leader, Michael Ignatieff, with two heads, symbolizing his alleged two-facedness.

The article was actually informative, in revealing that either Ignatieff or one of his political handlers wasn’t being consistent regarding his voting record in Britain.

Since then, I have scarcely learned anything interesting when reading it at one of my local coffee shops when it is the only paper around.

One of its regular commentators, Christina Blizzard, has written several boilerplate commentaries that I read.

One was about the Ontario Liberal government, led by Dalton McGuinty, after its minority election win in October 2011, where she had the audacity to write:

For the last eight years, the Libs have governed as if they were anointed by divine right.

It’s called a majority government, under Canada’s system of constitutional monarchy, Christina. You should know well, since the guy you wrote a book about — former Premier Mike Harris — governed with at least as much arrogance as McGuinty did.

But it’s her job to throw red meat to her audience, keeping the false left-right paradigm firmly in place, and Ontarians and Canadians divided against those working against their common interest.

Shortly before Occupy Toronto was broken up, someone wrote a letter to the Sun, saying she had walked through the camp and didn’t find any problems. Their response? They arrogantly asked whether she was an expert on the situation by having walked through there once.

Again — more red meat to their audience, portraying Occupy Toronto as a bunch of losers with no legitimate grievances.

Another example of their boilerplate commentary is a response to a letter in the first week of 2012, saying, “they say it’s for our safety,” in response to the Ontario Liberal government’s policy that all Ontarians present valid identification in order to redeem their medical prescription.

That’s a nice partisan dodge of the larger issue of governments of all political stripes imposing regulations in the name of “public safety,” such as the Stephen Harper Conservative majority government’s plan for police to be able to obtain selected customer information from all internet users, without a warrant, all in the name of protecting the public from criminals.

But something tells me the Toronto Sun isn’t going to come out against that scheme to allegedly protect public safety to the degree they lambaste Liberal government policies.

U.S. Senator Bob Smith of New HampshireBob Smith, former U.S. Senator from New Hampshire from 1990 to 2003, derided “liberals” during his January 21, 2011 appearance on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith.

Yet, he voted for “The Liberal Lion” Ted Kennedy’s No Child Left Behind Act in 2001, as you will see in the Senate’s official roll call vote here.

Someone on the forums at somethingawful.com included this site as one of their best news sources, and categorized it as liberal/progressive, along with the top 1% rated crooksandliars.com.

Perhaps it’s because he read these articles:
“CIGI’09: Towards a Global New Deal (Without the Average Person),” or
“The Voice of the Working Man,” or
“Voters in 14 out of 15 states with a higher than average number of households making $200K+ voted for the presidential candidate who promised to raise their taxes!”

But I wonder if the author knew that 4 of my articles have been posted on Alex Jones’ Infowars.com and Prisonplanet.com, or if he/she read any of these articles:
“The first step in health care reform: recognizing that health care is not a right,” or
“President Bill Clinton in 1996: “The era of big government is [NOT!] over — 13 years later,” or
“Why the Federal Reserve central bank of the United States is illegal”

Still sound liberal/progressive to you? FauxCapitalist.com: beyond definition!
