Terror Almost Strikes in Liberal Land
Alleged terror plot uncovered in Kingston, Ontario!
Imagine that: a terror plot in my own hometown where Syrian refugee families, struggling to settle into and learn the language and customs of a strange new environment, now find their presence being exploited to scare the bejeebers out of the locals who, not incidentally, tend to vote Liberal.
Oh, please Mr. Scheer. Make Kingston safe again! Turn us into outright racists if you have to. Yes, if we work hard at it, we can even out-Right the Right.
Vice: Conservatives Are Blaming Refugee Screening for Alleged Bomb Plot
Ooooh, that seems a rather revealing statement on Goodale's part. Is he saying that Scheer doesn't know Jack, and has merely leapt upon an opportunity to push anti-immigration buttons in this election year?
Or is it possible that Goodale himself knows the probable outcome and is pretty sure Scheer doesn't? And if that's the case, what's Goodale up to himself?
I love it when they say "experts believe". But if you're an expert shouldn't it be more a matter of actual knowledge than belief?
Not being an expert at much of anything myself, but reasonably competent, a keen observer of human nature, and an avid reader, I would, however, agree that the terrorist meme is wearing thin, especially for political purposes.
If we've got terrorists at all, the chances are sadly great that they are aided, abetted, tricked and/or wildly exaggerated for political purposes and, as we've seen, for war purposes (regime change) by "experts" in the field.
Nena-News: How the West Created the Islamic State
The whole terrorist meme goes all the way back to presidential policy advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who originated the very useful bogeyman dubbed by the CIA as "Al Qaeda" (Arabic: the base). He made no bones about it, and saw it as a clever means of grabbing Afghanistan away from the Russians.[YouTube]
Did Brzezinski create a Frankenstein's Monster that toppled New York's twin towers, including - for what? just for good measure? - also Building #7 which didn't even get clobbered by a plane but, like the towers, collapsed into its own footprint, but was, luckily, just as heavily insured as the towers were.
One report states that:
As a result of 9/11, both the US and Canada were able to begin the process of eroding "democracy" by invoking the "Patriot Act" and "The Security Certificate".
EFF: The USA PATRIOT Act broadly expands law enforcement's surveillance and investigative powers and represents one of the most significant threats to civil liberties, privacy, and democratic traditions in US history.
CBC: [The Security Certificate] is a legal tool that allows the Canadian government to detain and deport permanent residents or foreign nationals considered to be a security threat using secret evidence that the accused is not allowed to see.
One prominent victim of the Security Certificate is Mohamed Harkat. Please see the Donation Request and links to articles about him in the YYC side panel. ---->
If the Conservatives are planning to use fear tactics to beat Trudeau, one of them ought to at least volunteer to get wounded for the cause, otherwise we're just going to get complacent all over again about terrorism.
Dick Cheney could arrange that if Scheer is too chicken. And there might eventually be a blockbuster movie about it. Paul Gross could play Scheer (if he hasn't aged too much).
As one commenter to the article about the movie "Vice" said: "True Power is shooting a lawyer in the face and having them publically apologize for getting in the way of your shot".
Yes, Cheney was quite a big baby about the incident, and managed to garner more sympathy than his victim.
Ronald Regan, on the other hand, was a real trooper. He was definitely shot for the good of America. Guess what his first words were to the doctors who treated him: “Please tell me you’re Republicans.”
That's keeping your eye on the prize! Come on, Andrew, take one for the Gipper!
