Easter Holiday Wishes and Notice to Readers

Easter Holiday Wishes and Notice to Readers


Due to family commitments [participation in an "Easter egg hunt"] I will be away from my computer for a few days.  Easter is traditionally the season of hope and rebirth.  Humanity is blessed with the conscious awareness that things CAN and DO get better, no matter how dark the present may be.

Let this awareness guide all my readers in the next few days.  Let's count our blessings along with Easter Eggs.  May our families, not false identities foisted upon us by "identity politics", be the core of our true identities. And may our children and grandchildren be the focus and evidence of our right and responsibility to make a better future.

Crisis Actors Shooting Themselves In The Foot


Shooting Yourself in the Foot

So. Russia recently announced it has secretly developed some very high tech weaponry...far ahead of anything USrael currently has. Shortly thereafter...US/UK/NATO provokes a situation involving a False Flag operation in the UK [Fake poisoning of UK spy on a Park bench]. Subsequently, 100's of the "Wests" "eyes and ears" in Russia are kicked out in a "tit for tat" diplomatic war...This immediately lessens/eliminates opportunities that USrael will learn anything more about these mysterious Russian wonder weapons.

Does the metaphor "shoot yourself in the foot" have any resonance? Back in the day when sanity was the prevailing mental condition of humanity, finding out that your enemy/competitor had developed a technological "edge" would generally spur you to cozy up to that individual...feign friendliness and partnership...in the hopes that the details of this advantage would become available/accessible.

Not any more.  In the era of institutional insanity...the opposite is true.  You find out that your enemy has developed a game changing technology?  Insult them!  Provoke them with a contrived piece of sh!t False Flag...blame them without recourse to the historical principles of justice and Punish them draconically.  THAT'S the way to surpass your enemy these days!

I said in a recent comment on this blog that the UK Assistant Secretary of Defense...the one who "blurted out" during a press conference on the Skripal False Flag that the Russians should "Go Away and Shut Up!" was behaving akin to a vandal....his outburst was the verbal equivalent of "...throwing a brick through a Stained Glass Window".  You know those big stained glass windows...like they have in St Paul's Cathedral in London.  

But, upon further reflection, I have taken my assessment of his behaviour a bit further.  He did not "blurt out" his line...it was carefully scripted.  Scripted for maximum provocation...and to put the Russians on alert that what would transpire thereafter was going to be a pig mud wrestling match...not an international dispute.

IMO, the British Secretary of Defense..is only an actor, hired to perform a role.  In fact, all the West's current stable of deplorable puppet politicians, including and especially Canada's very own Bollywood dancing Prime Minister "le Dauphin" Trudeau, are what I am going to call "crisis actors".  Just like the low life, underemployed traitors to their country "crisis actors" that are hired and trained surreptitiously by the Deep State to come on scene and present the "official story" after a school shooting or other "mass casualty" event.  These professional crisis actors don't owe the electorate or the public or the nation anything.  They're employed by the Deep State and can be hired and fired at will.

Yes, all politicians these days...and many well known celebrities in the Newz industry (Main$tream Media) are certified "crisis actors".  They are selected early on...based on appearance (suitability for the role) craven lust for earthly fame and wealth, lack of ethics and chutzpah!  Then they are trained [brainwashed] and, just like the "stardom" days in the '30's and '40's heyday of Hollywood...are maintained in a "stable" of similar actors, trained, kept on the payroll.

At an opportune moment, they are inserted into the matrix and begin their acting career.  They are given lines, poses, and sets.  At the Press Conference in the UK just after the Skripal False Flag, the little "extra" in the British cabinet got his moment on centre stage...basking in the limelight.  His lines were simple, yet unforgettable, he "threw his verbal brick through the stained glass window" of tradition, law and sanity...and then it was all over.

Give the Man an Oscar!

Still Report on the US cell (FBI) of the Western-wide Police Terror Factory involving vulnerable Patsies

Bill Still - The Still Report
Asks the Burning Question:
Is the FBI linked to Mass Shootings?

To which the greencrow responds...'Is the Pope a Catholic?'  The above video is a must watch.  Like almost all of Bill Still's reports, it's chock-a-block full of "dots" [facts] to connect with other clues as to what is going on in the 5-eyes realm of Western corruption. This time Still examines Police [FBI] corruption in the United States.

Still says that there are several millions of documents held by the FBI about mass shootings--that it refuses to hand over to the US government elected representatives, even though the documents have been formally requested.  One of the sworn constitutional duties of these elected representatives is to provide oversight on agencies like the FBI.  To deny that constitutional right is a de facto admission that a coup has taken place and the powers that be are "above the law" and "above the constitution".  In normal times, this would be cause for alarm and an emergency activation of armed forces in the US Capital to, as Still suggests, surround the offices of the FBI, seize the relevant documents and run them up to Capital Hill.

Still points to the sudden resignation of a US lawmaker from Utah, former Senator Chavez.  Chavez was involved in the formal request for the documents from the FBI before he suddenly and mysteriously resigned his seat.  Still asks why Chavez not only resigned but refused to say specifically WHY he resigned.  The obvious implications are that what he discovered in his early stage examination of some of the documents was so horrific that he feared continuing with the quest to the point of resignation!

It's not rocket science what he likely found out.  We in British Columbia already know what's been going on for years.  The corrupt government agencies are seeking out vulnerable dopes and mentoring them...at taxpayer expense....for months and years...and then setting them up as patsies... to carry out terror acts...whether it be a bombing in a crowded square, a mass shooting in an urban nightclub...whatever.  This is what federal police agencies are doing all over western countries...justifying their existence, huge budgets AND terrorizing the populations into meekly accepting the tyrannical, warmongering, globalist Deep State.  No doubt the FBI documents subpoenaed by the US government document this criminal corruption.

BTW, folks.  I'm STILL waiting to hear the outcome of the Canadian Federal Government's appeal of the BC Supreme Court's 2015 decision to throw out the conviction of our two home-grown patsies...John Nuttall and Amanda Korody.  Like the Pulse Nightclub shooter, these two ex-addict, low-functioning disability/welfare clients had all kinds of connections with CSIS and the RCMP in the months prior to them placing a bomb on the grounds of the BC Legislature on July 1st, Canada Day in 2013.

BC Justice Elizabeth Bruce threw out the convictions, saying that CSIS and the RCMP were "manufacturing terror' by mentoring [putting the couple up in hotels...driving them around to pick up bomb parts, etc., etc., etc] the couple at a cost of over $1,000,000 in overtime alone...all this at a time when the drug dealers involved in the opioid epidemic were, and continue to be, running wild and killing citizens in record numbers.

Following the throwing out of the conviction by Justice Bruce, the Federal government appealed and the appeal was heard in January, 2018.  After that, silence.  No announcement of a decision.  Nothing.  What power these corrupt creeps must have over our society....that they can silence the legal system, the elected representatives and anyone of any ethical persuasion left in the main$tream media.

Diplomacy is Dead...What Next?

Russian Federation Spokesperson Dmitri Peskov

Today is a national day of mourning in the Russian Federation. Dozens of children and their families were killed in a tragic Shopping Mall fire in a Siberian City a few days ago. Ironically, this was the same day that hundreds of Russian diplomats were summarily kicked out of Western countries on the order of the Deep State Global Tyranny.

So when you watch the all day live broadcast of the memorial services for the fire victims on RT, think not only about the needless deaths which Putin ascribed to wanton negligence by the maintenance staff of the Shopping Mall...but also give a small thought at least to the Death of Diplomacy...due to the wanton negligence/deliberate actions of the Deep State Warmongering Perps.

Above, is a recent video of the full interview with Chief Russian Diplomat/Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov. Watch it as a fin de siècle example of diplomacy at its height. He chooses his words carefully...yet is ruthlessly truthful in doing so. A masterpiece.

Now, we're in the era of "Shut Up! And Get Out!" as voiced by the Ministry of Defense ohmadon from the UK ...when caught up in the tangle of his governments' own false flag lies about a park bench and a poison that would, if used, have killed everyone within a block radius.

Listen to this RT Interview with a financial expert Max Keiser. I was with Max all the way, right up until he blamed Saudi Arabia for 9/11...then ha ha I GOT it. Max is a dysinfo agent using the old standby...the limited hang-out. Everything he said initially was true...including and especially about the US Empire historically being based on war, looting and stealing the resources of other countries. But the Elephant was Missing from the Room. His analysis completely left out Israel. Well, when he blamed SA for 9/11 it all became clear. The entire interview was a propping up of the alibi/pointing the finger elsewhere for 9/11. As Christopher Bollyn has made abundantly clear through his excruciatingly detailed books...9/11 was a Mossad Operation. Say, is Keiser a Jewish name? So. The future is going to be pretty bleak with no Diplomacy, no truth and lots of "Shut Up and Go Home".

Wait....while the Internet and blogosphere still exist don't we have a small portal from which we can observe the outlines of truth and decency on the horizon? Here, eg., Stephen Lendmen paints a pretty accurate landscape portrait of what is likely to happen next. Nuclear War is more inevitable than ever. The boys HAVE to use their toys dontcha know. Come to think of it...with the Internet...why does Russia need diplomats anyway? Their government can address those Westerners who have a few critically-thinking brain cells directly, right in their homes...sitting at their computers via the Internet, right? Just a minute...what was that headline I saw a few minutes ago?

Internet Going Down?


Yes, according to KimDotcom...Julian Assange, imprisoned for years in the Equadorean Embassy in London, has finally been cut off the Internet. In a triple whammy...the perps operating out of the bowels of Fleet St [very appropriately named after an enema] London, have attacked Diplomacy by: 1) denying a basic function to the Embassy of Ecuador; 2)  free speech;  AND 3)  The Internet. [UPDATE:  Apparently the Equador Embassy cut Julian Assange off the internet for breaching an agreement re commenting on world politics...but, but, but...doesn't Julian have a cell phone which he can hook up to an outside server?  The plot thickens.]

Julian is just the beginning. The Internet is going down......even though it's one of the last moneymakers for the West...even though it's demise will kill what little economy they have left. What does it matter anyway when the Chinese Petro-Yuan is on the horizon and spells death to the Petro-dollar?  Folks, this is the fundamental reason for everything we've seen building in the past year or more.  The basic funding of the Military Industrial Complex world hegemony is being shut down.  The Samson Option, including the nuclear Samson Option, is the only option left for the perps.

Neocon False Flag Cycle Comes Full Circle with Trumps' Bolton Appointment

John Bolton - One of the PNAC
Murderers Behind 9/11 and Iraq War

Geopolitics is turning into one "Night of the Living Dead" episode after another, each worse than the last.  The latest development is Trump's appointment of the 9/11 perp relic, John Bolton, to the position of "National Security" advisor.  Back in the early 2000's when alternative bloggers were busy "solving" the False Flag Crime of the Century...9/11...one of the first photos to go up on the "WANTED" poster board was that of John Bolton, above.  Bolton was involved with the architects of the Neocon Manifesto "Project for The New American Century"...which concluded that the United States needed a "New Pearl Harbour" in order to have a pretext to convince the citizens they needed to attack seven Middle East countries in five years.  This document was only one of many "smoking guns" indicating that 9/11 was an "Inside Job".

Low and behold, 9/11 took place just months afterwards and most of the PNAC signers got plum appointments in Bush II's cabinet...including John Bolton.  It was John Bolton who went around the presstitute media studios giving interviews about how attacking Iraq was going to be a "cakewalk".  It is stunning to think that even after the United States admitted that it attacked Iraq based on the false premise of "WMD", killed, maimed and uprooted millions of innocent Iraqis...left the country environmentally poisoned and in ruins...that one of the chief architects of this War Crime of the Millenium [one who was caught lying to a Senate hearing] is still considered an appropriate appointment.

So we've come full circle now.  The Middle East is in turmoil.  Three more countries [Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen] have been destroyed...and counting [Syria].  And Bolton is brought back...what for?  To "finish" the job?  To start a nuclear war with Russia?  Here is what former US President Jimmy Carter has to say:

Bolton’s appointment 'a disaster for our country': Jimmy Carter


From a PressTV report

US President Donald Trump may have made “one of the worst mistakes” of his tenure by appointing John Bolton as his national security adviser, according to former President Jimmy Carter. 
In an interview with USA TODAY on Monday, Carter described Bolton as “a warlike figure” who supports catastrophic policies.

“Maybe one of the worst mistakes that President Trump has made since he’s been in office is his employment of John Bolton, who has been advocating a war with North Korea for a long time and even an attack on Iran, and who has been one of the leading figures on orchestrating the decision to invade Iraq,” Carter said.

The 93-year-old former president went on to call the appointment “a disaster for our country.”

President Trump announced Gen. H.R. McMaster's replacement on Thursday, making Bolton -- a former US ambassador to the United Nations -- his third national security adviser, part of a shake-up that creates one of the most hawkish national security teams of any White House in recent history.

Some analysts have said that the appointment of Bolton as US national security adviser indicates that the Trump administration plans to escalate hostilities towards Iran.

Shortly before the US and its allies invaded Iraq in 2003, Bolton reportedly told Israeli officials that once Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was removed, it would be necessary to deal with Syria, Iran and North Korea.

Foreign policy experts say Bolton is likely to encourage President Trump toward military confrontation with Iran.

Bolton has also called on Washington to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic, even though UN inspectors have repeatedly verified Iran’s compliance with the accord."

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

What is Bolton likely to do as "National Security Advisor"?  Here is what RT thinks will happen next...

Remember when Trump was anti-Iraq War? Bolton hire just tip of iceberg in policy U-turn

.....Despite being elected on an anti-interventionist program, Donald Trump has now surrounded himself with foreign policy hawks and Iraq war apologists. The new National Security Adviser, John Bolton, is just one of the wild bunch.

Back in his pre-election days Trump was a vocal critic of American military adventurism. Notably in 2013, he outright said on Twitter “All former Bush administration officials should have zero standing on Syria. Iraq was a waste of blood & treasure.”

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

As the above paragraph illustrates...Trump has squandered his last ounce of credibility with American voters by appointing Bolton and thus acting in diametric opposition to one of his main campaign stances...whatever. We know that Bolton is in Israel's hip pocket, always has been...so the sights are now on Iran....Israel's "next up the plank" list of enemies which, in total, contains every single other nation in the world...including the US itself...as its final coup de grace.

Every day, more storm clouds build on the horizon.  The USrael globalist Deep State is dragging humanity closer and closer to disaster.  Any moment we could see that final flash of blinding white light...a nuclear explosion before the endless darkness of planetary extermination.  That, folks is the big picture of the Bolton appointment.  What are the immediate implications and outcomes?  RT tries to bring sense to the latest senseless act of the USraelites...events that quickly followed the Bolton appointment:


*********************
From RT

....Moscow will now consider its response to the expulsions of its diplomats, but it is in a no-win situation. If, based on past practice, the Russians respond with “proportionate” restraint so as not to permanently alienate their Western so-called “partners,” they can be sure of more of the same – and worse. On the other hand, if they hit back asymmetrically and hard – for example cancelling overflight rights of flag carriers of sanctioning states – the howls of Russian “rogue behavior” will intensify, leading to yet more and harsher sanctions, such as SWIFT cutoff. Look for a stepped-up boycott campaign against the 2018 World Cup as well as stronger calls to neutralize Moscow’s veto in the UN Security Council. Or another chemical weapons false flag in Syria. Or a possible “Krajina scenario” launched by Kiev against Donbass – in the expectation that Putin will step aside the way that Slobodan Milosevic did.

Those behind this global campaign think we can treat Russia as though it were a minor power of the magnitude of Serbia, Iraq, Libya, or Syria, or even Iran. They think if we just keep pushing, pushing, pushing, either the Russians will collapse or back down. They can see no other acceptable outcome than removing Putin and returning Russia to the condition of a Yeltsin-era vassal state – a term Putin used in his interview with Oliver Stone – or, better yet, its territorial breakup along the lines suggested by the late Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Things are going to get worse. Maybe a lot worse."


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

I wish my parents were alive and I could ask them if THIS is what it was like in the late 1930's, just before the outbreak of WWII.  Did THEY see the return to power of a known criminal, one who had been disgraced by association with a notorious false flag that had murdered in cold blood thousands of his own countrymen and women?  Did THEY see a "leader" they elected on a platform of peace and reconciliation betray them and humanity in the worst possible way...by surrounding himself with blood-soaked ghoulish murderers?  Did THEY feel powerless...as the sides lined up inexorably for battle?  Perhaps they did...but this time it's different.WE'RE being lined up on the wrong side. Worse. So much worse.

North American Union is bidding for the 2026 World Cup

North American Union Flag

A lot of people don't even know that the United States and its two vassals, Canada and Mexico, have put in a joint bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.  Here is a report from RT about the details of that bid.  In my post of this morning, I opined that the Skripal False Flag in the UK was all about denying Russia the opportunity to hold a successful World Cup.  This announcement puts an interesting twist on the disgusting degradation of International Law, diplomacy, fundamental principles of jurisprudence, etc., etc., that is the Skripal crisis.  In other times it would seem crazy to think that the world's people would vote for an entity to hold an international sports [or any] event when they have a hard won reputation as discourteous, warmongering and flaunting of basic civil norms of behaviour...but these are not normal times and we're not in Kansas any more Toto.

Please read the following report on the "NAU bid"...and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

************************
"World football governing body FIFA will decide on a joint bid from the USA, Canada and Mexico submitted on Monday to host the 2026 World Cup at its annual congress in Moscow in June. FIFA announced on Monday that it had received two bids – the other came from Morocco – to host the tournament. The two bids will be evaluated by a taskforce, which will visit all the potential host nations, and a decision will be made in the Russian capital this summer.
The 2018 World Cup kicks off on June 14, when host nation Russia take on Saudi Arabia at Moscow’s newly renovated Luzhniki Stadium. The tournament will be held in 12 stadiums across 11 host cities before returning to Luzhniki on July 15 for the final match.
The World Cup is held every four years, and Arab country Qatar was chosen to host the 2022 tournament. FIFA president Gianni Infantino described the 2026 World Cup bid process as "fair, objective and transparent."
"I challenge anyone to point out an organization that conducts a bidding process as fair, objective and transparent as the one that FIFA is carrying out for the 2026 FIFA World Cup," Infantino said in the statement.
"FIFA has been heavily criticized for how it conducted the selection of hosts in the past; it was our obligation to learn from this and leave no room for any doubt or subjectivity," he added.
"This is why the rules of this process... include the highest standards in terms of ethical conduct, participation and commitment to sustainability and human rights."
Moroccan officials announced a $16 billion spending plan for the tournament, should they receive hosting rights. it also touted its "very low gun circulation" in competition with USA.
************************
This is the first time I heard about this bid. I doubt whether very many Canadians are aware of it. The three governments would have to soft pedal something like this because of the implication that none of the three countries are up to [sovereign or solvent enough] the challenge of hosting such a games on their own. Not to mention that the Trump government has constantly insulted Mexico with its stupid "border wall" talk...even insisting that Mexico would "be happy" to pay for such a wall.

The big question that popped into my head when I read the story is....Is this just another of the endless sneaky tactics constantly being imposed on Canada and Mexico to bring in the NAU [North American Union] via the back door?

They're probably getting antsy about the chances of imposing the "done deal" NAU--what with the raging unpopularity of "leaders" Trump and Trudeau [I don't know the poll numbers of the Mexican leader].  Have there ever been two more unpopular leaders in my lifetime?  Doubt it. In fact, these two leaders are part of a rancid crop of western leaders who, unless they're gone soon, put the idea that the planet will survive until 2026 in grave doubt.

In summary...if the perps behind the USrael Deep State continue their current virulent, anti-Russian psy-op....they can kiss goodbye the idea of hosting the FIFA cup in North America.  When it comes time for the vote/decision....I have no doubt the Rest of the World would just love to show the neocon globalists just how popular their SOP tactic is of using sports for political purposes. The little state of Morocco has never looked more appealing to me...and if there's a Gawd in Heaven...then it's "On to Morocco in 2026!"

Skripal False Flag Sh!t$torm Explodes into World Cup Destroying Main$tream Meme

Skripal False Flag Sh!tstorm Explodes
as Deep State tool to destroy Russia World Cup

This morning the Main$tream Presstitute Media is uniformly marching in anti-Russian goose step fanaticism. They're announcing the expulsion of Russian diplomats in all the Western vassal states. Looking back over the past week or two this was always going to be where it was headed. It was always going to be about suddenly and without cause, evidence or rationality...escalating the strategic project of isolating Russia exponentially...just ahead of the 2018 Soccer (Football) World Cup which is scheduled to start in Russia in a few weeks.

Anyone with a cursory understanding of geopolitics would know that the 2018 World Cup in Russia was never going to happen.  And today it is crystal clear how that Deep State decision which was likely made years ago.... is going to play out.  First banning and expelling diplomats to be closely followed by banning national teams going to Russia.  All Europe and North American [as if that would matter] football teams will not be going to Russia.

Now we know how ruthless these diablos are when they set their sights on destruction.  Funny, just yesterday I was thinking about that American hero who was the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic to Europe back in 1927.  Charles Lindberg was his name.  A very handsome fellow, he became a national, or even world wide hero.  Then, he came out against WWII.  He saw though the bankster, Deep State corralling and propulsion of humanity towards a World War with "enemy du jour" Germany....and spoke out.

Well, the Main$tream Media attacked him like a pack of jackals. Simultaneously, his firstborn child was ripped from his infant's cradle in the middle of the night and slaughtered.  These guys don't hold back.

That is what's going on re Russia/Putin at the moment. Total destruction of Russia's public image.  As I've said recently, the West's weaponry may be the sh!t$.... but their media is a top notch and ruthless reputation killer. IMO, Putin needs to strike back, and fast.  Losing the narrative is the worst thing that can happen in this situation...where Russia is the target of a global media Sh!t$torm attack.

UK political commentator George Galloway succinctly puts it:
Galloway said Russia should not assume that being soft in response to Trump’s action will have any desirable effect.

“If it were me who was making the decision, I certainly wouldn’t proceed on the assumption that being soft will in any way satiate the ravenous beasts that are baying for Russia’s blood at this point in time,” he said.

According to Galloway, the UK has not conducted a serious and unbiased investigation into the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter.

“As far as I can see there is no investigation,” he said. “The verdict was declared before the investigation began and I think there’s no investigation because the results of any serious scientific analytical investigation would show that the allegations against Russia are baseless.”
Galloway said there are still many questions which have been left unanswered in the Skripal case.

“I don’t believe that Russia is responsible for this act. And the good news is that most of the British public tend to agree,” he said.

If I were Putin [lolololol] what I would do is use this occasion to grab the narrative back by disclosing one of the secrets it must know about the West.  If Russia knows anything about 9/11 or the Apollo lunar hoaxes...now's the time to disclose it. Now, before they shut down RT and the other friendly media like Sputnik and PressTV...not to mention the alternative blogs [like this one] and/or even the Internet itself.  Grab the narrative back, Putin.  The world's counting on you!

PS:

This link has a list of the countries that Qualified for the 2018 World Cup of Football.  Watch for intense international pressure/false flags...taking place in these countries.  Iceland has already bowed out ["diplomatically'] wonder if that means their team won't play?  This is how THEY play the game.

Russia's Side of the Skripal Story

Russia's Side of the Skripal Story
You know the one...
The one that the Sheeple Will 
Never hear or see on the Lying Mainstream Newz


Thanks to the Saker we have the Russian side of this disgusting pack of British Lies.  The old saying..."No Sex...we're British!" will have to be revised....the new quote should be:  "No Truth...we're British!"

Canada's Puppet/Idiot Son is back at it

Le Dauphin Pontificating about something
he knows nothing about

The Idiot Son of Canada's former Prime Minister, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, is at it again.  "Le Dauphin" Trudeau, never one to turn down an opportunity, as my intrepid blogging colleague, Northerntruthseeker, often says....to perform a certain scatological function on a controller/handler...is busy doing that "thang" again. Please read this article from the CBC and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

The Russian embassy is firing back at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for criticizing President Vladimir Putin at a news conference this week.

But a leading expert on Russia and the Arctic is dismissing the dust-up as the result of a mistaken prime minister, and a junior Russian diplomat with an itchy Twitter finger.

Trudeau said on Wednesday during a Toronto press conference that Putin needs to start playing a more positive role in the world on a variety of fronts, from Ukraine, to Syria, to the Arctic, as well as answering for Russia's role in the nerve gas attack in Britain two
weeks ago.

The embassy tweeted its response on Thursday, accusing Trudeau of using confrontational and unproductive rhetoric.

Trudeau also said on Wednesday that Canada needs to be vigilant about protecting the integrity of its electoral systems from foreign interference. However, the Russian Embassy tweet did not mention election meddling.

Trudeau's remarks came after several recent warnings about possible Russian interference in the 2019 Canadian federal election from eastern European diplomats in Ottawa, as well as a top NATO researcher.

Trudeau listed some positive behaviour he said he'd like to see from Putin.

"Whether it's pulling back of his engagement in the Donbass or leaving Crimea," the prime minister said, "whether it's taking responsibility for . . . the important questions that the U.K. has asked after the terrible poisoning incident a few weeks ago in Salisbury, whether it's questions around NATO, questions around Syria, questions around the Arctic." 
The House of Commons unanimously adopted a motion this week that blames Russia for what it calls a despicable nerve gas attack in Britain that hospitalized former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the city of Salisbury. The British government says they were victims of a Russian nerve agent.

The Arctic gets dragged into the exchange

Trudeau's final example of the Arctic drew the ire of the Russian Embassy in its tweet. The Arctic is one area where the two countries have tried to co-operate through the Arctic Council and bilaterally.

"We regret PM Trudeau's confrontational rhetoric at yesterday's Toronto press-conference prompted by UK slanderous Russophobic hysteria," said Thursday's tweet.

"This language of ultimatums is totally unacceptable & counterproductive, especially for bilateral dialogue on important issues, like the Arctic."

Trudeau's office did not reply to a request for comment on why he included a reference to the Arctic in his remarks, or whether Canada's Arctic policy had taken a negative turn with Russia.

RCI: Russian embassy warns of fallout for Arctic cooperation
Foreign election interference a reality, says Trudeau after Putin's re-election

Michael Byers, an expert on the Arctic, dismissed the affair as an inconsequential chain of events.

"The prime minister made a tiny mistake and a junior diplomat picked up on it. End of story," said Byers, the Canada Research Chair in Global Politics and International Law at the University of British Columbia.

Byers said he has travelled to Moscow and met with Russian foreign ministry officials as part of his work on Arctic foreign policy."The Arctic is one of just a couple of places where Russian-Western co-operation remains good."

Tweet could have been sent by a 'troll'

Byers also said no weight should be attached to the fact the statement was made on a Twitter account linked to the Russian Embassy.He said the account is run by a press secretary "who is a very active tweeter — you might even call him a troll."

Byers said he has blocked the account on Twitter."Yes, he is an employee of the Russian foreign ministry, but he is a long way from the centre."

***********************
Greencrow says:  According to the CBC, Trudeau sat down and gave an interview wherein he again poked the Russian Bear.  He doesn't HAVE to do this...Canada is a minor...and getting
more minor all the time...player on the international scene.  Canadians, for the most part, don't want him to do it.  In fact, Canadians elected le Dauphin on the basis that he would be different from former Prime Minister Stephen Harper...who was up to the same kind of embarrassing mischief all the time. Prior to the last federal election, Trudeau made a false promise of a geopolitical "reset" for Canada, which was the main reason he was elected. The Greencrow didn't take the bait and did not vote for le Dauphin, but he was elected all the same.

But, in spite of being elected by a small majority, Trudeau doesn't feel he owes Canadian voters a
single thing.  Like all the other puppet leaders of the 5 eyes vassal states, he knows who has the key to wind him up in the keyhole in his back. When he flags...like he did after he returned from his disastrous trip to India a few weeks ago and, after flailing around like a fool in Parliament for a week or so...was shuttled off for yet another vaycay in Florida...where it is presumed he met with his psychoanalyst and/or the key holder to get re-wound and re-programed. Trudeau has now returned and is apparently back in the same old rut.

The only good news is that Trudeau's polling numbers are tanked.  Now, ain't that curious?  Trudeau's numbers are just the same as Harper's were at his low point...after Canadians finally cottoned on to what HE was up to. I have come to detest Justin Trudeau and, when he gratuitously pokes the bear...with the predictable volley of perp fed lies...I want to vomit.

Splattered Truthies

Splattered Truthies

Hi folks:

My laptop's still in the shop being repaired.  I only have a few borrowed minutes allowed at my husband's computer. He's afraid I might taint it and thus prevent him from looking at the golf scores.  In the interim until I get my own device back, my blogging colleague, Ed(itor) who I recently found hails from Massachusetts, not Connecticut, has generously provided me with a post.  I have borrowed the title "Splattered Truthies" from him and like it so much I could start a meme based on it at some point. 

Ed(itor), unlike moi, likes to focus on US domestic newz.  While I think this area of geopolitics is crucial to understanding the bigger picture, I do not have the patience to muck my way through the "swamp".  Ed(itor), OTOH, has heavy rubber hip wading boots and is up for the challenge.  Enjoy!

"... the Nazis used hydrogen cyanide and carbon monoxide to murder millions of Jews, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war, and others in concentration camps throughout Europe…"
Et tu, Wayne! I sentence you to a month in the salt-pits of codoh.com. See all the videos of Denierbud or whatever he happens to be calling himself these days. And don't miss the hilarious analysis of carbon monoxide as a death weapon. No one dares to mention carbon monoxids any more. What in the world have you been reading? As for the cyanide, it would be remiss to neglect mention of anti-Judaic hero Germar Rudolph. Go to duckduckgo.com and put in *Germar Rudolph cyanide*. Ignore the first few items. Those have been data-bombed by the Jews. But go on to Rudolph's own websites and the other serious articles. Forensic chemistry says the traces of cyanide use are permanent and obvious. No Holocaust because no trace of cyanide except massively in small delousing chambers for lice on clothes.

Wayne, some of your work is tops, especially regarding Obama 's background. No one can know everything, but the Holocaust fable is satanic and needs a stake through the heart. Many people take you seriously, so please get this right.

“… Peters spent ten years in Germany working in military intelligence. He later became a Foreign Area Officer, specializing in the Soviet Union. He attended the Command and General Staff College. His last assignment was to the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence. He retired in 1998 as a lieutenant colonel.… Peters’ wife, Katherine McIntire Peters, is the Deputy Editor of Government Executive Media Group, a division of Atlantic Media.[3]…. Peters's first novel was Bravo Romeo, a spy thriller set in West Germany, and was published in 1981. Since then, his novels progressed from futuristic scenarios involving the Red Army to contemporary terrorism and failed state issues. His characters are often presented as military mavericks who have the knowledge and courage to tackle problems others cannot or will not. His novel, The War After Armageddon, was released in 2009. In 2008, he published the non-fiction Looking for Trouble: Adventures in a Broken World. He is a regular contributor to the military history magazine, Armchair General Magazine, and he also serves on its Advisory Board.[8]

He has also written historical war novels. His novels about the American Civil War have been well received and recognized with the Hammett Prize and the W.Y. Boyd Literary Award for Excellence in Military Fiction.

He has published numerous essays on strategy in military journals such as Parameters, Military Review, and Armed Forces Journal, reports for the United States Marine Corps (see Center for Emerging Threats and Opportunities[permanent dead link]), formerly wrote a regular opinion column for the New York Post, and has written essays and columns for USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Newsweek, The Weekly Standard, The Washington Monthly and Army magazine. Peters is a member of the Board of Contributors for USA Today's Forum Page, part of the newspaper's Opinion section…..”

Peters' 1997 article "Constant Conflict"[9][10] stated: "There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.”////

“… "Hundreds of federal, state and local law enforcement officers worked together to identify and locate Conditt," U.S. Atty. John F. Bash said in a statement. The affidavit supporting the complaint, which might give details on how officials zeroed in on Conditt, remained under seal Wenesday afternoon.

Officials warned that Conditt may have planted or mailed more bombs before killing himself, and more than a dozen square blocks of his hometown of Pflugerville, a northeastern suburb of Austin, were evacuated as officials searched the area.

While investigators have not revealed a possible motive for Conditt's actions, a portrait emerged Wednesday of an introverted Christian conservative who had been home-schooled and worked at a local manufacturing company before being fired last year…..”

[Ed.: In what I am calling ‘the story of the DuaBomber” [UnaBomber redux], we have the trademark three names, amid the old history that the FBI and Homeland Security has worked closely with businesses for years, FedEx included, and we were all just waiting to see how this would unravel. At first blush, it looks straight-forward. I fully expect a quick made-for-TV movie, perhaps with Tom Hanks as a FedEx executive. I’m old enough to remeber the Tylenol poisonings, and that was decades ago. There’s likely some little weird gnome sitting in a closet in a walk-up rented by an intel contractor whose entire job, aside from playing video games and watching off-channel videos, is to come up with these ideas. But maybe that’s just what Wayne Madsen [or his clone-du-jour] called “classic MK-ULTRA fear” today. https://www.waynemadsenreport.com/articles/20180321 ]

Sweden Unveils Plans For 'Total Societal Mobilization' Against Russia

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-20/sweden-unveils-plans-total-societal-mobilization-against-russia

“… As America’s power and influence wane, the time will come for both Russia and China to make their mark on the global stage. Just on a side note, it should come as no surprise that Trump’s nominated ambassador to Australia, Adm. Harry Harris, is a known anti-China war hawk who recently warned Congress to prepare for a war with China.

Why should we need to prepare for a war with China? Who talks and thinks like that? A nation on a slow and inevitable decline that cannot refuse to admit defeat in almost any battle theater since World War II, that’s who.

Realistically, nobody wants a third world war, but as the U.S. increasingly thrashes to maintain its control of the global financial markets, its network of over 1,000 bases worldwide, and its status as the world’s global policemen, a third world war may be Washington’s only hope at staying afloat as the world’s top power.”

Authored by Darius Shahtahmasebi via TheAntiMedia.org,

[Ed.: As has been noted frequently by GreenCrow and others (including me), the crazed “Russia” frenzy and the contiunued pointing toward a foreign shore (Russian did it, Putin’s behind it) leaves a question hanging out in the breeze; Russia has always been a difficult nation to understand because of cultural differences, a language that is difficult to learn and to read, and more. But is it not possible (indeed, likely) that Russian culture, politics and state systems have changed radically since the fall fo the Soviet Union?

Given that the Pritzker family [ https://www.bloomberg.com/billionaires/profiles/jay-r-pritzker/ ] has been a major source of monies for the Democratic side of the Deep State and a chief investor in its miltitary machinery [see http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2017-12-03/jim-dey-now-thats-rich-democrats-have-vast-treasure-campaign-rhetoric.html ] [for unrelated items, see:http://themillenniumreport.com/2016/04/who-really-owns-and-controls-the-military-industrial-complex-part-ii/ and http://digitalcommons.fiu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1027&context=classracecorporatepower ], there must be some consideration given to the idea of the invulnerable Sarmat [ http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/putin-russia-new-nuclear-weapons-test-intercept-1.4556986 ] screaming in “like a meteorite” over the Arctic warm weather oil-drilling basin to land on the inner city capital of gun crime called Chicago.]


“… The U.S. government is also preparing for the worst. In March 2012, former President Obama signed an executive order titled, “National Defense Resources Preparedness” into law, giving agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Agriculture, Department of Labor and Department of Defense the authority to seize resources, materials and facilities it deems necessary to ensure national defense. Whether a worldwide crisis is caused by an asteroid hitting the Earth or a nuclear war breaking out, the decisions made by the elite should always act as signals for the public….”

Notice to Readers

Notice to Readers


Hi Everyone:

Just letting you know that my computer finally crashed on Monday,after deteriorating in function for some weeks.  Yesterday I took it to the computer technician at Staples where I bought it.  The same gentleman who sold it to me, "Hussein" told me he sees this situation about four times per week.  Someone comes in and tells him the same story...that their "Outlook" and "Word" evaporated from their hard drive and when they tried to fix it themselves, they were invited "by Microsoft" to buy a new edition.  When they clicked on a few links...things got progressively worse.

This is what happened to me...Hussein told me it is a common scam.  He says that the first four links that come up when you search "Microsoft" on Google are not "Microsoft" at all but scammers who will infect your computer. These scammers have the ability to "encrypt" your Outlook e-mails which is what he says has happened to mine.  He says he doesn't know if he will be able to get them back but he has to back up all my work and completely wipe my hard drive and then download all the material back onto the computer.  

I'm wondering...if Google is so all powerful that it can control and manipulate all the algorhythims on Google, why can't it detect and delete the scammer's links?  Why are THEY at the top of the Google list when you search for "Microsoft"?

Anyhoooooooo...I'm typing on my husband's computer as my laptop will  be in the shop for about three days.  If it's any longer than that I will keep you posted.

CawRANT Events #63

CawRANT Events #63


Good Morning, Everybody!  It is a cloudy/sunny Spring day in the Pacific North West.  Outside my front window I can see my daffodil buds just about to open.  If all goes well, I should have a bumper crop of daffodils, crocus and hyacinths this year.  My CawRANT is a week late this time.  I should have published it last Monday, according to tradition, but last week was so chock-a-block full of newz stories that deserved their own post that I relegated my Caw RANT to this week.  There is still a torrent of crucial and critical stories so, let's get started.

Canadian Newz

My first story is about BC news. Apparently, the Canadian Revenue Agency ...the equivalent of the US's IRA...has a scandal brewing within one of the offices of its bureaucracy which stretches from coast to coast.  In a Nanaimo, BC CRA office there was an investigation into a situation where the CEO of the office decided for reasons of his own ego...to harass and prosecute a couple in Nanaimo who had a restaurant business.  Read the story at this CBC link.  

"Canada Revenue Agency must pay nearly $1.7 million for suppressing evidence in tax evasion case...

'Unprofessional glee'

Punnett said the case suggested "an unfortunate culture within the CRA."

He pointed to a primary report which cited the fact the agency hadn't prosecuted a restaurant or nightclub in Nanaimo as rationale to go ahead with the charges.

He also highlighted an email exchange in which a CRA investigative team leader pointed to press coverage by saying: "Front page of Wednesday's Nanaimo Daily News. I can't wait to read the edition after the guilty verdict....."

The reason I find this story newsworthy is the report's assessment of"....an unfortunate culture within the CRA." IMO, this is the same culture which has been allowed to breed, like locusts in all the governmental offices all over the West...from the White House to the UK parliament to the Canadian Tax gathering administration. Note, of course, that the taxpayer will be footing the $1.7 million dollar penalty. It is high time that the individuals involved shouldered some of the responsibility and were personally dinged in the pocket book for these high crimes...or served prison time. Unless and until the concept of personal "responsibility" is resurrected and activated...we are, IMO, doomed as a civilization. It may already be too late. But more about that later.

On March 1st, 2018 the World learned that the "Arms Race" had been turned on its head

Last week, the world was still reeling from Putin's earth shattering announcement that Russia has, on a shoestring budget, designed and built not one, not two, but several new weapons...each one of which vastly outstrips anything that the US or its vassals has to offer in the way of earthly self-immolation. What was the response from the West? The West is still going through the five stages of grief, starting with "denial" as exemplified in this report from "The Guardian" and analyzed by Alethonews.com:

In this piece Mark’s taking the ‘Nowheresville’ tack with added and cringe worthy willy jokes.

He tells us the weapons Putin talked about might sound “terrifying” but that’s ok because they probably won’t work (you know, much like the F-35), and anyhow, the animations in the presentation were “clunky”, and gee gosh, it’s all so frickin funny. Except (abrupt change of take in para 4) it is actually quite a “serious” shopping list that (no discernible irony) “go[es] against the letter or spirit of arms control treaties”. But then, just as abruptly, (para 5) it’s funny again, because…
It is easy to wonder, with a snigger, quite for what Putin is (over)compensating.
In case his sledgehammer wit is too subtle for you, Mark means Putin has a small penis. Yes, apparently he really thinks this comment says more about Putin’s manhood than about Mark Galeotti and his imbecilic reductionism."



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

No matter how the alternative media tried to nudge the West through the primitive stage of "denial" as in this Duran piece:


"Putin’s message couldn’t be clearer: The West needs to stop provoking a war we don’t want & which no one can win

Putin is trying to wake them up to the reality that if things don’t change nuclear war is a near certainty

...the official denial continued...and slowly morphed into "anger". But, because the liars in the Main$ream media cannot admit even what they are angry at...for fear of showing their vulnerabilities...they presented their anger in the form of an evidence-free attack on Russia. Accusing it of poisoning a former British spy and current M-16 asset who was supposedly (we don't even have proof of this) sitting with his daughter on a Salisbury park bench. No more evidence was produced but a few photos of police, supposedly exposing themselves to the virulent poison but showing no effects...milling around a park bench.

All of this blunderbuss explosion of lies coming out of UK was carefully timed to screw with the Russian Federal Election. It was even admitted by the CBC that the hope was to distract and produce a blanket of apathy smothering the Russian voters. Well, if that was the pre-text to destroy the reputation for quality jurisprudence, democracy and journalism [sic] in the UK then it was, like everything else the west has tried in an effort to bring Russia down recently, an abject failure. To wit:

According to Russia’s central election commission, Putin won 76.67% of the vote after 99.8 percent of ballots were counted. No serious complaints about violations have been registered.


Not according the lying Western media...which made up out of whole cloth providing no witnesses or evidence...the canard that the election was fraught with fraud.

This morning we find that the West has redoubled its efforts to stop Russia in its economic tracks...by somehow pressuring Europe to block the building of the nord stream gasline...after all, this is mostly what it's all about, dontcha know. Europe needs to satisfy itself with expensive and environmentally destructive (to North America) North American gas...shipped expensively to Europe rather than the much cheaper Russian gas. The otherwise entirely impotent US representatives even wrote a letter about it:

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

“We write to express our concern about the continuing development of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that would carry natural gas from Russia to Germany. We oppose Nord Stream 2 and urge the administration to utilize all of the tools at its disposal to prevent its construction,” lawmakers wrote in a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, as cited by Sputnik.

The letter, first seen by the Washington Examiner, warns the US government over probable monopolization of European energy markets. According to 39 US senators who signed the document, the project, implemented by Russia’s state-run firm Gazprom and its partners, represents a setback in Europe’s attempts to diversify its gas supplies. The pipeline allegedly makes the US more susceptible to Russian coercion and influence.

“For too long, European nations have been held hostage to Russian political pressure on a whole host of issues due to their dependence on Gazprom to deliver gas needed to keep their people warm throughout the winter,” the letter reads.

“The best way to guarantee Europe’s long-term economic health and independence is to enable and support investment in a variety of energy sources, suppliers, and routes to meet Europe’s needs and to force Gazprom to negotiate as a market actor and not a monopolist....,”

********************
Yes, this is what I call the "enveloping din from hell" Western technique of political destruction of the opposition. A cacophony of blistering lies, threats and invectives, rise up like demons from the underworld and, as one, surround and attack the victim. Putin might have his missiles and other secret weapons...but the West has Satan and his hellish fellow demons.

It's all up to Putin to get rid of OUR DEMONS????!!!

At this point I have to comment that a blogger I admire, in fact two Americans bloggers that I admire more than any other, Paul Craig Roberts and Stephen Lendman...continuously say that Putin is too soft. He should strike back "in kind" against the verbal and political slings and arrows of the West. This criticism rings a bit hollow to me. It's easy for us armchair warriors to say the only entity that is opposing the demons is not striving hard enough. I need to point out to Paul and to Stephen that there is NO elected politician either in the United States or the UK who is fighting against the diabolical ones. NONE! Here we encounter that irritating word "responsibility" again. Where is the moral responsibility in the United States [USrael] or the UK? From now on, I suggest that Roberts and Lendman have a proviso with each of their posts critical of Putin for not being "more aggressively oppositional" that their countries have NO opposition!

The Din from Hell

And some might say that I am being too dramatic in my depiction of Putin's enemies as Satanic, demonic and a "din from hell". Well, friends, in point of fact I am being too kind, too weak, too wishy washy. 

Who, else but Satanic demons would do this? Send gestapo-type soldiers to a Palestinian child's home in the middle of the night...terrorize his family, arrest the boy, drag him out of bed...take him to their police station, keep him up all night under interrogation and force him to sign a confession to...wait for it...having lied about the circumstances under which a chunk of his brain had been recently blown from his head. They forced him to say the obvious injury [his head is caved in on one side] was a "bicycle accident" all the while medical records and eye witness testimony say it was an Israeli bullet, fired at close range.

This young Palestinian is the cousin of the imprisoned 17 year old girl, Ahed Tamimi...who is being accused of slapping an Israeli soldier who entered her house one hour after a chunk of her cousin's brain had been shot out of his head.

and bites another Sheep in the Face.
Bidness as Usual

Still have doubts about the devils? Well, watch the above video. This shows satan himself unleashing a pitt bull attack dog on a herd of sheep. The dog bites off one of the sheeps' tail and does serious injury of the face of another sheep. All this done by a settler/Satan....who is on land stolen from the Palestinians. STILL think I'm over-reacting in calling the small, borderless entity of Israel Satanic?

Israeli parole board orders early release of soldier jailed for fatal shooting
Read this next story wherein an Israeli parole board orders early release of this soldier jailed for a fatal shooting of a Palestinian:

The face of Satan

This file photo taken on July 30, 2017 shows Israeli soldier Elor Azaria (C), who shot dead a wounded Palestinian man in March 2016, standing next to his mother Oshra (L) and father Charlie during a hearing at a military court in Tel Aviv. (Photo by AFP)

Murder charges were brought against Azaria after video footage, recorded by a Palestinian rights activist, emerged showing him killing Sharif on March 24, 2016.

Palestinian Abdel Fattah al-Sharif lies on the ground following a fatal shooting in the occupied southern West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron) on March 24, 2016. (Photo by Ma’an news agency)


The Israeli soldier walked up to the injured Palestinian man and, without waiting for any orders from his commander, calmly shot the Palestinian in the head, killing him in front of the Palestinian citizens nearby. Now the murderer is getting off early for "good behavior? Think about it folks? How will that insult traumatize the Palestinians further? How much more can they take? How much more can the world take of this? If Putin ever does set off his missile Kinzhal which is "dagger" in Russian...I know exactly where it should be aimed...right at the heart of Darkness.

Finally, some good news from the world of birds

Whenever the geopolitical events and endless crises get me down...I retreat to the wonderful world of birds. I go out for a walk in the woods with my three dogs and a pocket full of peanuts. The neighborhood crows see me leaving my yard and set up a cawing that can be heard for blocks. She's started on her walk! They fly above me like a jet formation in a Russian air show, occasionally swooping and diving to keep me aware of their presence and interest in...what I have in my pocket. I stop at the bridge with the iron railing and count the crows waiting, only inches away in the nearby branches. Five? Then I carefully balance exactly five peanuts on the iron railing and step away. The senior crow goes first...gingerly picking off the peanuts, stuffing two or three in his beak. This is a precious moment for me because, due to the logistics, I get to stare directly into the birds' eyes at eye level. There is a very heavy silent communication of trust going on.

Trust

My final insight for this morning is the eternal value of trust. Trust is what makes the world go around. Putin is the master of trust. This morning, Assad congratulated Putin on his electoral victory and ascribed his landslide vote of confidence correctly as a reward for the trust he has earned.

Canuck The Crow
His Best Side

Ending on a positive note, here's an update on Vancouver's star crow..."Canuck the Crow". Apparently he's gaining fame...even in the Big Apple.
