OPEN LETTER: to Andrew Scheer - Leader of the Official Opposition - Canadian Parliament

Andrew Scheer announces first act as leader will be to Google who he is
Who is Andrew Scheer?

Dear Andrew Scheer:

Yes, you--and all Canadians--have been busily googling your name since your surprise election last weekend to the position of Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and Leader of the Official Opposition in the Canadian Federal Parliament in Ottawa.

I was initially pleasantly surprised to read about your victory...even though, prior to last Sunday, I had never heard your name.  It was refreshing, to say the least, to hear that there would be a new face in the Canadian halls of "power" in Ottawa.  Please read my blog post on the matter for further details of my initial (and subsequent) reaction:

http://greencrowasthecrowflies.blogspot.ca/2017/05/good-political-news-for-once-and-great.html

Even though I am a geopolitical blogger and deal on a daily basis with politics...my area of interest is international and focusses on globalization geopolitics, the Deep [Global] State, wars for Empire including the wars in the Middle East and Ukraine.  I have regular readers checking my blog from all over the world.  You might be surprised to learn that the second highest readership (after the US) comes from Russia and Ukraine.  Although I occasionally touch on Canadian domestic affairs...it is generally within the context of how Canada is affected by or affects international geopolitics.  Thus, I can rationalize my previous ignorance of your candidacy and the Conservative Leadership Campaign because it was not within my usual scope of interest.

Once you were elected, however, it did fall within my purview and so I published a rather upbeat post on the matter yesterday.  An hour or so after publishing my post, I was shocked to read (after belatedly googling Wikipedia for your bio) that you are one of the 13 Canadians banned from travelling to or within the Russian Federation.  I nearly had whiplash from the 180 degree turnaround in my POV--upon reading this very disappointing piece of crucial information about your history.

In my initial post, I expressed satisfaction that the current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would (in you) have a viable opposition.  This was because, as you probably are aware of by reading the Public Opinion Polls, Mr. Trudeau has been in steady popular decline--due to reneging on several promises since his election.  While the media dotes on his change of heart re electoral reform, this is, IMO, a smokescreen to cover up the real reason for his growing unpopularity.  The real reason is that Trudeau is continuing the vassalage Harper foreign policy of following the US globalist, neocon "Regime Change" foreign and military policy--that has dragged the world down to perpetual war since the early 2000's.

My entire political thesis is based on the Rule of International Law and the primacy of Independent National Sovereignty.  IMO, Canada's very existence depends on the Rule of International Law rather than the "survival of the fittest", unipolar, globalization "Regime Change" doctrine of the United States and its "allies".

Since the early 2000's, the United States has declared war on Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and has surreptitiously invaded Yemen, Syria and many other countries (the latest being the Philippines) by way of proxy terrorist militias.  Canadians are truly fed up with this escalating chaos and destruction of national infrastructure...and killing (including millions of children) going on non-stop around the world.  Some of us had held out hope that Trudeau would change the international dynamic, as he had promised during the election (I personally held out no hope that he would do this and did not vote for him).  Canadians want to regain our former international respect and reputation based on Peacekeeping, and being "Honest Brokers".  Instead, not only has Justin Trudeau towed the highly unpopular foreign policy lines of Stephen Harper, he has doubled down and appointed, as Canadian foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, who is a supporter of the illegal Kiev Junta which in 2014  conducted a violent "regime change" in Ukraine...snipers...shooting at both sides from buildings surrounding the Maidan Square led to the ouster of a democratically-elected leader, and installed in his place an appointee of US Acting Secretary of State Victoria "cookies" Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt, US ambassador to Ukraine.

Freeland's grandfather, who immigrated to Canada following WWII was the editor of a Nazi newspaper in Ukraine.  Freeland supports the Kiev Junta, which has military battalions who wear swastikas and adhere to tenets of neo-Nazism.  Having a neo-Nazi supporter as Canadian Foreign Minister?  How bad can it get?  Well, naively I thought it couldn't get any worse than Freeland.  But then I read your WikiLeaks profile yesterday and saw that along with Freeland, you were also banned from entering Russia.  This ban of 13 Canadians was made by Russia in direct retaliation for sanctions placed on Russia by Canada...after the coup...following obediently behind the US Regime Change artistes in Washington.

Ostensibly, Washington is covering its 'serial coup/regime change' destruction of International Law (upon which Canada's survival depends) under the fig leaf of opposition to Russia for the "crime" of allowing the Crimea to return to Russia after over 90% of Crimeans (ethnic Russian Speaking people) voted in a referendum to return following the violent Maidan coup...after which the Kiev Junta passed laws denying official language status to the Russian language in Ukraine.

Now, Mr. Scheer, as a student of Canadian politics and history, the two political issues mentioned in the paragraph directly above should ring a very loud bell.  Referendum?  Where have we heard that before?  Didn't Quebec have the right to hold a referendum to determine its future?  Are we to distinguish between the Quebeccers' right and the right of the people of Crimea?  Does one group have the right under International Law but not the other?  C'mon.  Secondly, Language Rights.  As a Canadian, you have been reading French on your cornflakes cereal boxes for long enough to know that a minority as large and important as the French Canadians deserves to have its language recognized as an "official language" of the country.  You, yourself, prudently mastered the French Language as a prerequisite to entering Federal politics.  The Kiev Junta banned Russian as an official language and you don't think the people of the Donbass and Crimea have a legitimate grievance?  C'mon! I won't go into all the other discriminatory practices the Kiev Junta imposed on the Donbass...like cutting off social security payments, the gas, electricity, etc.

The above has all been but prelude to the two fundamental questions I want to ask you---and that I believe Canadians deserve to have an answer to:

1.  Why do you believe YOU were selected to be one of the 13 Canadians banned from entering Russia?  I can't find this specific question answered anywhere on the Internet.  To my knowledge, you have made no public statements on the issue.

2.  As a Federal Leader, do you plan to respond to the wishes of Canadians expressed over and over and reflected in Public Opinion Polls that Canadians do NOT want Canada dragged into international conflicts and morasses and particularly ones that destroy or corrupt the rule of International Law...upon which Canada Depends?  In other words...Who do you plan on representing?  The people of Canada, or the Serial Globalist Deep State "Regime Change" artists?

Inquiring and concerned Canadians want and deserve to know.

Yours respectfully,

greencrow

UPDATED: Good Political News [for once]--and a Great Essay on Leadership

UPDATE:  May 30, 2017 - Already there is a major "Fly in the Ointment" to the Andrew Scheer election as Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.  According to Wikipedia...he was one of 13 Canadians to be banned from visiting Russia...along with the infamous neo-Nazi supporter, Liberal Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.  Wonder why he was banned? I'm sure we'll soon find out.  Oh well...back to the drawing board.  NOTEI am so disappointed by this development that I'm going to write an "Open Letter" to Mr. Scheer and will post it on this blog tomorrow.

Newly Elected Conservative Party of Canada
Leader Andrew Scheer - his victory speech

Yesterday's post "Are We There Yet" was such a downer to write and to read...but I had to write it because that's how I've been feeling for weeks now...totally frustrated by the status quo and by all the negative political news. Today's Post is going to offer a glimmer of hope.

Many pundits, political analysts and geopolitical strategists insist that one politician can't make a difference...that it is actually a "Deep State" that runs all politics all over the world.  Well, I don't subscribe to that view...and as proof of its falsity and the power of the individual, I offer the political careers of Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Bashar al Assad of Syria.  Putin and Assad are powerhouses in and of themselves. Each of them capable of mobilizing millions of supporters at a moment's notice...thus giving them the power to draw "lines in the sand" and confront the evil ones, the Satanic Deep State, both by way of the media and on the battlefield.  This potential "power of the individual" terrifies the Satanists.  They will do anything to deny its possibilities and, if it emerges as a barrier to their evil agenda, they will even assassinate the possessor of such power.  It has always been thus.  If you read ancient and modern history...it has always been one powerful, charismatic leader who has lead all the movements that have fomented all the changes throughout history.

Now for the good news.  Prior to last weekend, most Canadians thought we were stuck with "le Dauphin", Liberal Leader and Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau.  This poseur had won the leadership of his party and the office of Prime Minister by riding on his deceased father's lengthy coattails--and by being an attractive, young, glib personality.  The trouble was/is he has no good policies, as Canadians have discovered to their disappointment.  He simply regurgitates the old foreign/domestic policies of the discredited Stephen Harper...who was an abject captive of the US Deep State.

Before last weekend, it looked like le Dauphin was going to be around forever...one election after another.  Suddenly things have changed.  The Conservative Party of Canada held its leadership Convention and a totally new personality came out of the woodwork.  I had never even heard of Andrew Scheer prior to last weekend!  See the video above and this one...his first interview after his Convention win:

Conservative Party Leader during his
first interview with CBC talking head

......and watch as the new "Leader of the Opposition" takes the political stage, literally and figuratively.  Suddenly, le Dauphin has his hands full.  His main opponent, who will sit directly across from him in Parliament day in and day out is younger than he is....just as attractive with a boyish smile.  BUT, here's the clincher...Scheer is a savvy and seasoned parliamentarian...having held his seat since 2004 and having held the very respected position of (youngest ever) "Speaker of the House".  Raised in Saskatchewan, he is fluently French/English bi-lingual.  As speaker of the house Scheer was elected from within the parliament on a bi-partisan basis on the strength of  knowing the legalities of debate--the Rules of Parliament inside and out; being an expert negotiator; diplomat and...leader.  You have to be a natural leader in order to lead such a fractious group to focus on and debate one piece of legislation after another.

The whole tenor of the Canadian Parliament is going to change dramatically.  Le Dauphin better pick up his game.  No longer will he be able to get away with his petulant refusal (a record 18 times) to answer a simple question during "Question Period".

Le Dauphin Refuses to answer questions
during Parliamentary "Question Period"

There is nothing more unsettling to an established leader than the arrival of a "New Boy In Town".  I might even start watching the Parliamentary TV channel again, lol.

The selection (by one vote) of Andrew Scheer will also be interesting to follow due to his personal profile.  He's a Roman Catholic, married, with a large family.  No doubt this will raise the hackles/paranoia of the "usual suspects" who can't abide someone they don't "control" through ethnicity, religion or human frailties.  I expect a concerted effort by the controlled, complicit "main$tream media" to take him down a few pegs and weaken any power he may have by way of his positive personal attributes that I listed previously.   As I type, "they" are no doubt scouring his closet for skeletons.

Naturally, these are very early days...and I caution readers (and myself) that Mr. Scheer is very much a man of his party. Already, he has referred to "Stephen Harper's strong foreign policy".  He will be subjected to all the slings, arrows, bribes, perks and potential cow paddies to step into. But the good news remains...Le Dauphin will be forced to pick up his game...and perhaps become more responsive to the actual needs/wants of Canadians...because there will be an alternative come the next (s)election.

Finally, as an antidote to all the optimism expressed above, I am presenting an excellent essay on leadership for my readers.  Here is Part I of  "JFK at 100-- The War On Our Heros" h/t to Aletho News.  I am very much looking forward to Part II of this essay and will post it here when it appears.

Are We There Yet? Exposing the Criminality of the State....and Bringing the Perps to Justice

WTC Victims

The False Flag of 9/11 started it all.  The long trip spiraling downwards into an endless journey with jarring pit stops--punctuated by one False Flag after another.  Today the Newz is full of the latest Manchester bombing False Flag.  Regular readers will note that I didn't even cover this latest one...just like the other ones. Could it be that if we just ignore them they will go away?  Well, that's what the "Justice System" seems to think, anyway.

I remember after I discovered the truth about 9/11 I naively tried to convince my friends and family.  Their response, finally, was "What do you care about it anyway?  It doesn't affect YOU personally."  My response to that was "If we don't catch the perpetrators of 9/11 they'll keep doing it...just like any serial murderer...that's what serial murderers DO."  It didn't seem to click with them.

And I was right.  It keeps going on, and on and on. Like a kid travelling in a car on a family roadtrip...I keep asking on this blog and elsewhere..."Are we THERE yet?"  Have we reached the destination the Satanists put us on when they got away with 9/11?

Some analysts say we're on the road to a police state.  If we are, then it's a global police state...because the vile journey has taken us from downtown New York City through Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen and is now in the Philippines.

There have been a few, very few, signposts along the way. The journey seems to cause problems for religions other than Satanism...problems for Islam...and now, with the recent targeting of Christians in Syria and Egypt...Christianity. Russia seems to be a focus of the journey...Russia having been re-converted to Eastern Orthodox Christianity since the emergence of Putin as a leader. Putin is also a target because he read the roadmap and caught on early to the goal of this deadly journey.

Putin: ‘95% Of World Terrorist Attacks Are Orchestrated By The CIA’

April 06, 2017
Shockwaves are reverberating around the Kremlin after an extraordinary meeting called by Vladimir Putin yesterday during which the Russian president said that “95% of the world’s terrorist attacks are orchestrated by the CIA,” and the St. Petersburg metro bombing must be investigated “with this in mind.“

President Bashar al Assad of Syria is another expert navigator who knows the drivers and the destination.  He tells us here:

“The American President has no policies. There are policies drawn by the American institutions which control the American regime which are the intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the big arms and oil companies, and financial institutions, in addition to some other lobbies which influence American decision-making. The American President merely implements these policies, and the evidence is that when Trump tried to move on a different track, during and after his election campaign, he couldn’t. He came under a ferocious attack. As we have seen in the past few week, he changed his rhetoric completely and subjected himself to the terms of the deep American state, or the deep American regime. That’s why it is unrealistic and a complete waste of time to make an assessment of the American President’s foreign policy, for he might say something; but he ultimately does what these institutions dictate to him. This is not new. This has been ongoing American policy for decades.”

So, according to some few intrepid navigators, explorers, scouts in the wilderness, as it were, the entities driving the vehicle of our interminable "trip to no-where" operate from deep in the bowels of the CIA, Pentagon and in the underground bunkers of the Virginia Hills on the outskirts of Washington...and in the UK...and in Israel...and in Saudi Arabia and its gulf allies.  But, I shout from the back seat of the car...I knew who they were way back in the early 2000's when I told my family that they had to be arrested and brought to justice or they would keep killing!

Yet, today in 2017 we are still in the backseat of the car from hell and still riding...driving...or falling...whatever.  Why do the victims keep piling up?  Why is there never any true investigation?  Why do the justice and security systems of the world continue to let humanity down??? Here's a video by video blogger Bill Still talking about one of the latest victims--of the "9/11 endless journey into night"...Seth Rich.



The entities who Bill Still accuses of covering up the murder of Seth Rich are the same entities that Putin and Assad have identified and are the same perpetrators of  9/11 How long will they be able to roam free and commit their atrocities?  Will we ever get to a point when they will be arrested and tried?  Are we there yet?

UPDATED: Who wants Christians out of the birthplace of Christianity aka--the Middle East?

UPDATE:  May 26, 2017 According to this France 24 Report, Egypt has responded to the cowardly terrorist attack on unarmed Christians by bombing terrorist training bases in Libya

Bus splattered with blood after Gunmen
in military uniforms kill
28 Christians in Egypt[GRAPHIC]

Following Egyptian President al-Sisi's courageous confrontation with the demonic perpetrators of evil the other day--I posted a snippet HERE of his speech before Trump and the leaders of Israel and Saudi Arabia, I wondered when the retaliation would come.  Al-Sisis condemned the true supporters of terror--those who create, train, equip and support ISIS and other proxy terrorists, i.e. The US, the UK, Israel and Saudia Arabia.  As I feared, it did not take long for the Satanists to respond.  Please read the following report from RT below and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

Children among dozens killed as gunmen ambush convoy of Egyptian Coptic Christians

Gunmen opened fire on two buses and a truck carrying Coptic Christians in Minya, Egypt on Friday, killing at least 26, including children. Some 26 people were also injured in the attack. The group of between eight and 10 gunmen, reportedly dressed in military uniforms according to eyewitnesses, approached the convoy in three four-wheel-drive pickup trucks before opening fire, according to local media reports and the Egyptian Interior Ministry.

"They used automatic weapons," Essam el-Bedaiwy, governor of Minya told state television as cited by AFP. Security chiefs established a perimeter around the scene and launched a hunt for the attackers, setting up dozens of roadblocks in the area and sending out patrols to scour the desert road.

The Grand Imam of al-Azhar Ahmad al-Tayeb believes the attack was intended to destabilize the country. Al-Azhar is a center of Islamic learning in Egypt that dates back more than 1,000.  "I call on Egyptians to unite in the face of this brutal terrorism," al-Tayeb said while on a visit to Germany, as cited by Reuters.

The shooting, which occurred on the eve of Ramadan, happened as the victims travelled from Beni Suef province to the Coptic Orthodox Anba Samuel monastery near the southern city of Minya, 250km (155 miles) south of Cairo, according to local security sources, cited by Haaretz.

There is no immediate claim of responsibility. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi called an emergency meeting of security officials in the wake of Friday’s attack, Reuters reports.
Al-Bedaiwy confirmed the preliminary death toll, reports Reuters. Ambulances dispatched from the cities of Beni Suef and Minya are transporting victims to local hospitals in Adwa, Minya, Maghagha, according to local news outlet Youm7.

The US Embassy in Cairo warned of an imminent but unspecified terrorist attack on the night of May 24. “The Embassy is aware of a potential threat posted on a website by the Hassm Group, a known terrorist organization, suggesting some kind of unspecified action this evening,” the Egypt mission said in a statement.

The three-month state of emergency, declared in the wake of the Palm Sunday bombings in Tanta and Alexandria, is yet to expire. On April 9, twin suicide bombs targeting Coptic Christians killed at least 44 people and injured more than 118 in Tanta and Alexandria. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Coptic Christians make up roughly 10 percent of Egypt's population of 92 million and are the Middle East’s largest Christian community. Pope Francis visited Egypt in April to show solidarity with Christians following the April attacks. He met Pope Tawadros II, the spiritual leader of the Coptics in Egypt.

In response to the Catholic Pope's visit, IS promised to escalate attacks in Egypt, warning Muslims to avoid Christian gatherings.  “The growing number of these terror attacks is not at all reassuring,” Fr. Rafic Greiche, the spokesman for the Egyptian Catholic Church, told local Egyptian media as cited by the AP

Some entity is bound and determined to rout all Christians out of the Middle East.  Who and why are the only questions.  Geopolitical analyst Mimi "Partisan Girl" recently alleged that it is Israel who wants Christians out...to make room for a "homeland" for their favoured Kurd allies.  Surely, Syrian Christians have also been targeted in Syria.  Now, if the Bus had been full of Jews on their way to a Jewish holy site...there would be a worldwide condemnation and search for the killers.  The holocaust would be invoked and the Western Press would be full of lengthy tirades, particularly because this is the third such attack since Easter (the holiest time on the Christian calendar).  Some entity is bent on genocide--trying to wipe out Christians.  Who can it be?

Well, all I can do from this vantage point is to repeat the words of Egypt's President al-Sisi which he directed at the leaders of the US, UK, Israel and Saudi Arabia just within the last week...and which, IMO, spurred the demons to spill more Christian blood:

In Front of Trump, Egypt's Al-Sisi
Exposes the true supporters of Terrorism

Christians have become far too complacent over the past centuries.  The Devil hates those who believe in Christ more than anything.

Cluster Bomb Manufacturing Investment - How Canadian Corporations Make Money off Human Suffering

Cluster Bombs - How they work and the
Damage They're DESIGNED TO DO

PAX, an international foundation for Peace- has just come out with an update on a concern it has been reporting on since 2009...what corporations from what countries are investing in the Cluster Bomb Industry.  Yes, it is an industry and some "humans" are getting very wealthy designing and manufacturing evil implements of war that instantaneously tear people apart.  These bombs explode into tiny shrapnel fragments that scatter at tremendous speed, tearing limbs from bodies and heads from torsos.  That is what they are DESIGNED to do.  They are DESIGNED to rip the human body apart...and they are used to kill massive numbers of civilians, including children, in urban areas.

What is just as disgusting is that the financial set-up for manufacturing these brutish tools of Satan included huge corporate investment from well known corporations and banks that are the mainstay of the economic fabric of their home countries.  It is almost a form of blackmail.  The big armaments corporations get their funding quietly...from Insurance Companies and Banks that are used by average citizens who are unaware that this is where their savings and health dollars are going...it is evil beyond belief. 

So I read the PAX update released yesterday (and thereafter immediately buried under the salacious distracting headlines churned out by the M$M) and was shocked [not] to read that three very common Canadian Companies, including the Bank that I deal with...are investors in Cluster Bomb manufacturing Companies.  Those corporate entities are:  The Royal Bank of Canada; Manulife Insurance Company and Sun Life Financial.

Regular readers will remember how I've frequently named and targeted big Insurance Companies as being behind the Healthcare scandal/swindle in the US...and who are desperate to install the same healthcare Insurance format here in Canada.  What a coinkydink that these same health insurance companies are investing in tools of human destruction...shows you their morality

It would appear from this report that the primary manufacturers of Cluster Bombs are the following corporations:

Textron United States
Orbital ATK Orbital ATK Inc
Alliant Techsystems Inc

I have read the report as it pertains to my own country of origin...Canada.  Readers are encouraged to look at the report and click on the links that pertain to THEIR countries.  Please read the summation from the PAX report and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

PAX "May 2017 update - Worldwide investments in CLUSTER MUNITIONS a shared responsibility


Executive Summary

PAX (this edition, dated May 2017), published the first report on “Worldwide Investments in Cluster Munitions: a Shared Responsibility” in October 2009.

I. It was a state-of-the-art report on financial institutions’ investment in companies that develop or produce cluster munitions, on financial institutions disinvesting from producers of cluster munitions and on states banning investments in cluster munitions. Updates of the report appeared in April 2010, May 2011, June 2012, December 2013, November 2014 and  June 2016.2 This edition by PAX, dated May 2017, updates the earlier reports.

II. The Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) categorically bans the use, production, stockpiling and  transfer of cluster munitions. 94 countries signed the convention at the Oslo Signing Conference held  3 – 4 December 2008. The convention entered into force on 1 August 2010.

Article 1(1)c of the CCM states, “Each State Party undertakes never under any circumstances to assist, encourage or induce anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Convention.” It seems obvious that financing the production of cluster munitions constitutes ‘assistance’ or ‘encouragement’, as the Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC) also points out in its policy paper.3 However, States Parties’ implementation of this convention might not automatically result in a ban on investments in cluster munitions. The process to ban cluster munitions is well underway. Many countries that have signed the convention are now drafting national implementation legislation, and/or have started to implement the convention.

Even before the CCM opened for signature, there was an international consensus on problems stemming from the indiscriminate nature of cluster munitions. This means that from a moral perspective financial institutions should not have needed the CCM to terminate their investment in companies producing cluster munitions. Some financial institutions took this step and banned all investment in cluster munitions even before the convention was negotiated in May 2008; others persisted in supporting the production of these indiscriminate weapons.

We emphasise that, at this point, there is still a lack of official information in the public domain about the production of cluster munitions and investment in cluster munitions producers. That is why the information in this report is by no means exhaustive. We explain our methodology in this executive summary and at the beginning of each chapter.

We hope that this information will stimulate states, financial institutions and civil society to further the convention’s goal to halt the unacceptable humanitarian harm to which cluster munitions give rise. There have been positive developments since the first edition came out in October 2009. Civil society in many countries has engaged with financial institutions and government representatives to talk about ways to disinvest. Parliamentary initiatives emerged; in some cases financial institutions disinvested or states took action by adopting legislation on investment in cluster munitions (producers).

Unfortunately, a lot still needs to be done. Ending the human suffering directly attributable to cluster munitions requires national legislation that reflects the spirit of the CCM. Governments must present clear guidelines by introducing and enforcing legislation that prohibits investment in cluster munitions producers. Until such legislation is in place, financial institutions have a moral obligation to act on their own and disinvest from cluster munitions. When they finance companies that produce cluster munitions, financial institutions assist these companies to produce an indiscriminate weapon that has been the object of opprobrium of states and civil society worldwide. We have identified many of the financial institutions that still invest in cluster munitions producers – even more than nine years after the text of the Convention on Cluster Munitions was negotiated in Dublin. You will find the names of these financial institutions in the first part of the report, the Hall of Shame...."

"...Canada

Canada signed the Convention on Cluster Munitions on 3 December 2008, ratified it on 16 March 2015  and became a State Party to the convention on 1 September 2015.743 
Canada’s implementation legislation does not contain a specific prohibition on investment in cluster munitions. However, in a debate in the Senate in May 2012, the Honourary Suzanne Fortin-Duplessis said that “under the bill it is prohibited to assist, encourage or induce anyone to engage in any prohibited activity including knowingly and directly investing in the production of cluster munitions.”744  On 9 July 2012, a Senior Defence Advisor from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade  stated in an email to Human Rights Watch that: “an investment that is executed with the knowledge and intention that it will encourage or assist cluster munitions production would be captured by the legislation’s prohibition on aiding and abetting any primary offence.”745 On 29 May 2013, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs reiterated the view that investment is prohibited under the bill.746

In December 2016, a bill was tabled in the Senate that would amend the Prohibiting Cluster Munitions Act by inserting an explicit prohibition on investments into the act. 747 The proposed Bill is discussed in the section on draft legislation.

*  This corporation is renowned for its "nickel and diming" of Canadians who have been placed in the unfortunate situation of needing to receive benefits from it for sickness and/or injuries.  It is relentless in harassing and denial of benefits...sometimes causing more suffering than the actual injury or sickness...I am NOT at all surprised to see it on this List of Shame.

Textron United States....


...Recommendations of the Report:

 States that have joined the CCM should make clear that in prohibiting assistance, article 1(1)c  of the convention prohibits investment in cluster munitions producers.

•  States should draft national legislation prohibiting investment in producers of cluster munitions. This provides clear guidelines for financial institutions and is in the spirit of the  CCM and in line with the Dubrovnik Action Plan.

•  Financial institutions should develop policies that exclude all financial links with companies involved in cluster munitions production. Because all investment facilitates this production,  no exceptions should be made for third-party financial services, for funds that follow an index  or for civilian project financing for a company also involved in cluster munitions. Policies should not be narrowed to refusing project financing for cluster munitions.

•  Financial institutions should inform producers of their decision to end investment because  of the producers’ involvement with cluster munitions. Financial institutions can set clear deadlines with a limited time frame within which a company must cease production of cluster munitions if it wishes the disinvestment decision to be reversed. When a company persists in producing cluster munitions after the deadline, the financial institution will disinvest until such time as the company terminates production of cluster munitions. New applications for investment will be declined until the company has halted all activities related to the production of cluster munitions.

•  Financial institutions should apply their disinvestment policy to all activities: commercial banking, investment banking and asset management. All such activities aid and abet a company’s production of cluster munitions. When this new course of action requires a change in investment fund management, investors should be notified of this and given a deadline for withdrawing from these funds. After this deadline, management strategy will change and shares and obligations in companies involved in cluster munitions will be sold.


*****************

PAX should be commended for coming out with this update to their courageous Report of 2009.  It is not good enough to come up with an original report...it is necessary to follow up over the succeeding years to see what changes have been made and reward or punish investors in cluster bomb manufacturing based on their willingness to change...or not.

When I analyze topics such as corporate investments in war weaponry I look for a couple of things.  Firstly, I look for evidence of blackmail.  That is how all the perpetrations of evil are done on this planet..via some form of blackmail.  What are the elements of blackmail here?  These insurance companies and the Royal Bank have stupendous monopolies on their source of income...the public.  Are they being threatened that these monopolies will be cut back?  That some other competition will be introduced into their captive markets?  When you think about it...it resembles a huge money laundering scam.  The "dirty money" earned via the diabolical manufacture of limb-burning and tearing mechanisms...is laundered into pristine investment earnings--that benignly appear on citizens' yearly bank statements.

The second element I look at is the "bloody hands" factor.  The reason the demonic designers of war want the investments of these corporate entities is precisely because of their good corporate reputations.  They want to involve the mainstream corporations in their demonic activities so that thereafter the "honourable" corporations will have their hands bloodied and be subject to blackmail...so it is a vicious circle of blackmail, reward and punishment.  In fact, it is same old same old...same schemes they use to co-opt politicians, celebrities, etc.  These perps really ARE one trick ponies dontchaknow.

Finally, in summation, this report pulls back the curtain of obfuscation and disinformation that surrounds the wildly profitable manufacture of deadly and disgusting anti-human weaponry of war.  Cluster bombs are nothing more or less than child killers.  That is what they are designed to do.  Everybody knows that.  Look at the photo of the child above and wonder where he is today (actually I believe he came to live in Canada to undergo intensive medical follow up to his horrific injuries).  Do the people who work for the big weapons manufacturing companies that assembled the bombs that tore his limbs off ever think about him or his countrymen?  Do the CEO's of the big investment companies listed above ever think about the children they have indirectly maimed and killed?  Do the millions of investors (like myself) who deal with the investing corporations [like the Royal Bank] ever think where their investment dollar is going...and where the profits accruing to their investments come from?

At the moment, it appears that the criminally complicit corporations have the upper hand...they are operating under the protection of the government, the complicit media and the Deep State.  All the children of the planet can hope for is a day of reckoning

Labile

al-Sisi's shoe on left, Trump's on Right


This is a post I've been meaning to write for a while...ever since the "beautiful chocolate cake"/Syria bombing incident.  You remember that..when Trump, in an interview immediately following his bombing of Syria...where numerous Syrian soldiers and civilians were killed...lost his focus, momentarily forgot the name of the victim of his illegal and senseless bombing...and, incredibly, zeroed in on the "beautiful" after dinner chocolate cake his Maralago resort served up for his guest...the Chinese President...along with the "entertainment"...the shocking revelation of the potentially world war III-inducing American military aggression.

It got me thinking...there's another word for what Trump did that night...along with the designation I used at the time...non sequitur.  His speech pattern was "labile".  This is a term I became familiar with during my days as a social worker...working with parents and children with developmental disabilities.  Here are some definitions of "labile".

la·bile
ˈlāˌbīl,ˈlābəl/
adjective
technical
  1. liable to change; easily altered.
    • of or characterized by emotions that are easily aroused or freely expressed, and that tend to alter quickly and spontaneously; emotionally unstable.
    • Chemistry
      easily broken down or displaced.

Labile Affect

Labile Affect, also known as Pseudobulbar affect (PBA) or Emotional Incontinence, is a disorder where the patient has excessive displays of emotion, or expresses emotions that are not congruent with the situation. For example, uncontrollable crying over trivial things like accidentally knocking over a glass of water, or laughing hysterically over sad news like hearing about a devastating calamity. This condition results from an underlying neurological disorder, or from brain injury.

******************
I was going to do this post last weekend where there was a story in the New York Times about Trump calling former FBI Director James Comey a "nut job" while talking with Russian Federation Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  Then Lavrov denied the conversation and, knowing what liars the NYT are, I dropped the topic.

But, just today, in RT. there is yet another instance where Trump displays labile speech patterns.  He was attending a conference of Middle East Leaders a day or so ago...and, while meeting with Egyptian President al-Sisi, ..he suddenly commented about al-Sisi's shoes.  Here's the story from RT and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:


Trump’s foreign trip: The most bizarre moments so far (VIDEOS)

‘Boy, those shoes’: The President compliments Sisi’s footwear

Abdel Fattah al-Sisi wasn’t prepared for Trump’s reaction to his attempted love-bombing during their meeting in Riyadh.
The Egyptian head of state complimented the US President on his “unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible.”
Not to be outdone, and uninhibited by his seemingly little knowledge of al-Sisi, Trump returned the compliment.
"Love your shoes,” Trump said, as reporters were being taken from the room. “Boy, those shoes. Man ..."

***********************

No wonder Trump's handlers ushered the reporters from the room.  Here was yet another blaring example of embarrassing non sequitur/labile speech pattern.  Why does this matter?  Because it COULD be an example of Trump having cognitive brain issues....or, it could just be a symptom of a developmental issue/social awareness issue.  Whatever.  It could also just be that Trump is woefully ignorant of foreign affairs issues and has no understanding of the crucial role that Egypt's President al-Sisi plays in Middle Eastern Geopolitics.  If so, then that problem was quickly solved when it came time for Egypt's al-Sisi to address the gathering of leaders.  Watch the following video excerpt of al Sisi's speech and pay special attention to the look on Trump's face.

Thanks to Aletho News for the link

Egyptian President al-Sisi names names
of Terrorist Supporter Countries...
But Trump just focuses on his shoes?

In the above snippet from al-Sisi's speech to the stakeholders and leaders in the Middle East, al-Sisi packs in more truth than all the speeches of all the leaders over the past 16 years [with the notable exception of Syrian President Bashar al Assad]!  Al-Sisi says that the supporters of terror are not only the militants but the governments who support them, financially, medically, media wise, equipment/weaponry wise, etc.  He accuses the US and Israel to their faces of being behind the terrorism that has torn the Middle East apart and through unbridled refugee migration, threatens Europe and North America.

No wonder the Western Main$tream Media has given the speech no coverage at all.  That's always been their response to truth bombs.  They would rather obsess in robotic unison about False Flag bombs....which is yet another reason for the Manchester False Flag the other night...to distract from Trump's Middle East Bizarro Business Trip.

Israeli spokesperson promotes Manchester False Flag as distraction from Seth Rich Murder story

Top 5 Signs of a False Flag Attack

Why does the Zionist Shill, Rita Katz,continue to have any credibility in the Main$tream Media?  Why does anyone believe a Jewish woman who speaks for an Islamic Terrorist group?  What is wrong here?  Here she is this morning, announcing that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the blatant false flag that occurred yesterday evening in Manchester, England.

1) BREAKING: claims responsibility for attack at concert

******************

It would appear that the Google obfuscation was a success...because I can't seem to find out if Sean Hannity even interviewed Kim Dotcom after all.  That's how it works.  And if you went from one main$tream media network to another yesterday...following events in Manchester, all you saw were photos of ...well no EVIDENCE really...except some people milling around on dark streets with police tape strung around...the usual nothingburger....that they pass off as a gory false flag.  And, as so many bloggers have already asked this morning...Why do all these False Flags share one bizarre trait?  Nobody around has a decent cell phone with functioning video--who can capture the details that the talking heads are repeating over, and over, and over again.

So, in summary, yesterday in the City of Manchester, England there was yet another stereotypical false flag.  The likely purposes of it were to obfuscate and distract from:

1.  The rising curiosity in the assassination last summer of DNC worker Seth Rich who, it now has been revealed, was the individual who leaked DNC e-mails to WikiLeaks.

2.  The election in England which seems to be turning into the usual contest between the 'people's will' and the "need for fraud" to install the perps' puppets.

3.  The latest in the series of media "Drills" to make sure the co-opted, complicit, criminal media is still compliant..
