WHY METRO VANCOUVER SHOULD VOTE NO IN THE TRANSIT PLEBISCITE

WHY METRO VANCOUVER SHOULD VOTE NO IN THE TRANSIT PLEBISCITE

Residents of Metro Vancouver should vote “NO” in a plebiscite in March on a proposal to increase the sales tax. The money generated by the increase is to help pay for over $7 Billion in transportation improvements. According to the Mayors  in Metro Vancouver, those “improvements” will relieve the congestion caused by adding 1 million people to Metro by 2040.

The Mayors have stated that they have no “PLAN B”, implying that there is no alternative. But it is very clear that there is one :  The Mayors should unite to call for a dramatic cut to unnecessary immigration. It   has been responsible for over 83% of Metro’s huge population increase since 1991 when Canada’s mass immigration policy began. It will soon be responsible for close to 100% of the 1 million population increase. Metro Vancouver’s population in 1991 was 1.6 million. It is now over 2.5 million. If the immigration madness continues, it will be 3.5 million in 2040.

Residents should vote “NO” for the following reasons :

There is no point to having 3.5 million people living here by 2040.  Canada’s average yearly intake of 250,000 immigrants per year is corrupt and abnormal. It is a policy, not a constitutional requirement. It  could be changed easily. Our federal government has never provided any justification for this intake. If there is no justification for the high intake, then there is no justification for huge unnecessary infrastructure expenditures that result from the intake. If Metro prevents the congestion, then Metro won’t need a “Congestion Improvement Tax”. If there were ever a time for Metro politicians to show some backbone, this is it.

Instead, the Mayors are trying to deceive the public by not saying why the area needs all the extra infrastructure.  Two sample ballots that Metro Vancouver has published demonstrate the deceit.  The first one   began with this statement : “One million more people will live and work in Metro Vancouver by 2040. The region’s mayors worked together to develop a plan to reduce congestion on roads and bridges and to provide more transit to communities across the region.” To be blunt, this means that the Mayors didn’t have the guts to stand up to Ottawa and now they want residents to pay for their gutlessness.

The second sample ballot, the one that residents will use, says nothing about an additional 1 million people living in Metro Vancouver. The obvious question is “WHY?” The clear answer is that the Mayors and Councillors do not want Metro to ask who these 1 million people are and why they are coming here. The answer to “Who are these people” is unnecessary immigrants. The answer to “Why are they coming here?” is  that all of our federal parties are equally gutless and scared that if they stand up for the majority of Canadians, they will lose their share of the immigrant vote.

None of the conventional reasons given for immigration such as the supposed necessity to deal with an aging population or the supposed need to stimulate the area’s economy are true. The federal government’s own research has shown that Canada should not use immigration to solve problems caused by an aging population. It has also shown that immigration provides no significant stimulus to the economy.  In fact, recent research of thousands of income tax returns demonstrates that immigrants are taking close to $30 Billion per year more in benefits out of the economy that they are contributing in taxes.

Municipalities like to plead that they don’t have power over matters such as immigration.  Yet, they often grovel to Ottawa for other things and manage to get concessions by doing so. The point is that now is an even more important time to get concessions and to avoid a senseless 1 million increase in Metro Vancouver’s population and the accompanying massive expenditures.

Municipalities should also stop pretending that their Green strategies will solve problems created by a massive population increase here. The truth is that Ottawa’s senseless high immigration policy  will negate all the gains that might be achieved by Green strategies.  For example, Vancouver boasts that it will become the Greenest City in the world. Meanwhile, it is clear-cutting huge areas of single-family detached houses in order to make room for high rise condos. The new people need resources such as water, heat and food. These demands will create huge new environmental pressures—as well as huge amounts of waste. In 2014, Metro shipped about 170,000 tonnes of garbage to places like Washington State. Annually, it generates about 900,000 tonnes of garbage, including single-family waste. What will these Green hypocrites say in 2040 when a new federal government wants to increase Metro Vancouver’s population by another 1 million?

The current municipal cast in Metro Vancouver does not seem capable of understanding that there are limits to an area’s ability to absorb people.

Metro Vancouver, Southern Ontario and many other urban areas in Canada reached that limit years ago.  Canada desperately needs governments to develop some backbone and to stabilize our population.

Why Cultural Compatibility Must Be A Necessary Immigration Criterion: Look at the Results of These Moslem Opinion Polls

Muslim Opinion Polls

A “Tiny Minority of Extremists”?

“Strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be
unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is their destination.”

Quran 9:73

Have you heard that Islam is a peaceful religion because most Muslims live peacefully and that only a “tiny minority of extremists” practice violence?  …  Neither does it explain why religious violence is largely endemic to Islam, despite the tremendous persecution of religious minorities in Muslim countries.

In truth, even a tiny minority of “1%” of Muslims worldwide translates to 15 million believers – which is hardly an insignificant number.  However, the “minority” of Muslims who approve of terrorists, their goals, or their means of achieving them is much greater than this.  In fact, it isn’t even a true minority in some cases, depending on how goals and targets are defined.

The following polls convey what Muslims say are their attitudes toward terrorism, al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, the 9/11 attacks, violence in defense of Islam, Sharia, honor killings, and matters concerning assimilation in Western society.  The results are all the more astonishing because most of the polls were conducted by organizations with an obvious interest in “discovering” agreeable statistics that downplay any cause for concern.

(These have been compiled over the years, so not all links remain active.  We will continue adding  to this).

Remembering a Philosopher-King


It has long been recognized that there are two ways in which civilization can break down into barbaric conditions. The rule of law can collapse altogether leaving ordinary citizens powerless against the criminal elements that now call the shorts. This is called anarchy. Or the state can become intrusive and controlling, curtailing its people’s freedoms, dictating their everyday decisions, and ruling by sheer force in an atmosphere of fear. This is called tyranny. It has also long been recognized that there is a cyclical pattern to the rise and fall of civilizations in which after civilization breaks down into one of these conditions for a period, the other emerges in response, and eventually a new civilization is born out of the rubble.

What if, however, civilization were to break down in both ways simultaneously and the same state was to fail in providing the basic protection of the law on the one hand, while tyrannically harassing and abusing its people on the other? Twenty years ago one of the greatest American political thinkers of the last half of the twentieth century saw this happening in the United States and all around the Western world and coined a term to describe it – anarchotyranny, the synthesis of anarchy and tyranny. On February 15th, ten years ago, he passed away due to complications following heart surgery at the age of 57. His name was Sam Francis.

Remembering a Philosopher-King</p>
<p>It has long been recognized that there are two ways in which civilization can break down into barbaric conditions. The rule of law can collapse altogether leaving ordinary citizens powerless against the criminal elements that now call the shorts. This is called anarchy. Or the state can become intrusive and controlling, curtailing its people’s freedoms, dictating their everyday decisions, and ruling by sheer force in an atmosphere of fear. This is called tyranny. It has also long been recognized that there is a cyclical pattern to the rise and fall of civilizations in which after civilization breaks down into one of these conditions for a period, the other emerges in response, and eventually a new civilization is born out of the rubble.</p>
<p>What if, however, civilization were to break down in both ways simultaneously and the same state was to fail in providing the basic protection of the law on the one hand, while tyrannically harassing and abusing its people on the other? Twenty years ago one of the greatest American political thinkers of the last half of the twentieth century saw this happening in the United States and all around the Western world and coined a term to describe it – anarchotyranny, the synthesis of anarchy and tyranny. On February 15th, ten years ago, he passed away due to complications following heart surgery at the age of 57. His name was Sam Francis.</p>
<p>Sam Francis was far more than just the man who thought up a clever name for this phenomenon – he was also its chief chronicler, analyst, and critic. In his twice-weekly column, syndicated by Creators but carried by far fewer newspapers than it ought to have been for reasons we will shortly get into, he provided a bold, uncompromising, commentary, expressed in a dry, sardonic wit that was perfectly complemented by the way he seemed to look out at you with amused disdain through his heavy glasses in the publicity photo attached to his column, on the news and issues of the day and the narrative beneath the news and issues – the ongoing war being waged by those presently in power in the West and particularly in the United States on the traditions, cultures, symbols, and ways of life of Western peoples. Nor did he shy away from addressing the taboo aspect of this subject, the racial element.</p>
<p>Dr. Samuel Todd Francis was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee on April 29, 1947, and it was in Chattanooga that he was raised and where as a young prodigy his literary talents and brilliant mind first gained attention. It was also in the Scenic City, under the Appalachian mountains, that we was finally laid to rest in 2005. He studied English literature at John Hopkins University in Baltimore before taking his Ph.D in history from the University of North Carolina. </p>
<p>It was at Chapel Hill that he became acquainted with two of his fellow students, the classicist Thomas Fleming and the historian Clyde Wilson. These men would become his lifelong colleagues. They worked together on the Southern Partisan, a conservative quarterly that was started up in the late 1970s in the spirit of the Vanderbilt Agrarians. Each contributed to The New Right Papers, a 1982 anthology put together by Robert W. Whitaker. Their most significant collaboration however was in Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture, founded by Leopold Tyrmand in 1976 and published by the Rockford Institute of Rockford, Illinois. Thomas Fleming became the editor of Chroniclesfollowing Tyrmand’s death in 1985. Clyde Wilson is an associate editor, and until his passing Sam Francis was the magazine’s Washington or political editor. Under the direction of these men Chronicles became the flagship publication of paleoconservatism which, in opposition to the neoconservatives who were calling for a Pax Americana, a new world order in which the United States would use its military might to export liberal, capitalist, democracy to the farthest parts of the globe, called American conservatism back to its roots in the Burkean traditionalism of Russell Kirk and the small-r republicanism of the American Old Right that had opposed the New Deal, American entanglement in foreign conflicts, and the development of the “welfare-warfare state”. This was very much bucking the trend in the larger American conservative movement. As the neoconservative viewpoint came to increasingly dominate the movement, conservative writers who having opposed mass, demographics-altering, immigration, both legal and illegal, criticized Israel and objected to America’s being drawn into wars in the Middle East on her behalf, called for a rollback of the American federal government to its constitutional limits, refused to concede the victories of liberalism in the culture wars, and otherwise offended the neoconservatives, found themselves exiled from the pages of National Review and other mainstream conservative publications.Chronicles became a place of sanctuary for these writers. By the middle of the 1990s it was a sanctuary Dr. Francis was himself in need of.</p>
<p>Up to that point his career as a thinker within the American conservative movement had been quite successful. It had three basic stages. In 1977 he joined the Heritage Foundation, a Washington D. C. think tank that had been founded four years earlier by New Right activist Paul Weyrich and Edwin Feulner with money put up by beer baron Joseph Coors. Dr. Francis was hired as a policy analyst in the fields of intelligence and security, particularly with regards to the threat of terrorism as a strategy employed by the Soviet Union in the Cold War.</p>
<p>In 1981, following the publication of his The Soviet Strategy of Terror, he left the Heritage Foundation to take a position as legislative assistant to Senator John P. East, R-North Carolina. It was as an expert on national security matters that he was hired to this position but, interestingly, in the course of his work for East he was called upon to write a document that both required this expertise yet also had to do with the cultural and racial concerns on which his later, and lasting, fame rests. In 1983, US President Ronald Reagan signed into law a bill that made the third Monday in January into an American national holiday in honour of Martin Luther King Jr. The bill had been hotly debated, and leading the opposition to the holiday was the other Republican Senator from North Carolina, Jesse Helms. Senator East worked closely with his colleague and mentor in the campaign against this ridiculous holiday and on October 3, 1983, Helms read out in Congress a paper written by Dr. Francis that documented King’s collaboration with Soviet agents and Communist fronts.</p>
<p>Dr. Francis worked for Senator East until the latter’s death in 1986 at which point he joined the staff of the Washington Times. He served the newspaper as an editorial writer, opinion columnist, and editor and it was here that his career started to really take off. His column was nationally syndicated, and his articles won him the Distinguished Writing Award in 1989 and 1990. He was runner up for another award both those years as well. Then, in 1995 all of that came to an end.</p>
<p>It started with his column for June 27, 1995, entitled “All Those Things to Apologize For”. Written one week after the Southern Baptist Convention issued a grovelling apology for the stance they had taken 150 years previously in the controversy over slavery that divided them from the Northern Baptists, this column pointed out that the Baptists were making a big deal about repenting for something never condemned as a sin by the Bible. “Neither Jesus nor the apostles nor the early church condemned slavery,” he wrote, “despite countless opportunities to do so, and there is no indication that slavery is contrary to Christian ethics or that any serious theologian before modern times ever thought it was”. All of this is true. Unfortunately, it is the kind of truth that people in this era cannot bear to hear.</p>
<p>Dr. Francis was not arguing for slavery. He was arguing against what he called a “bastardized version of Christian ethics”, that had appeared in the 18th Century and had so permeated the churches that they “now spend more time preaching against apartheid and colonialism than they do against real sins such as pinching secretaries and pilfering from the office coffee-pool.” He observed, correctly, that to read the abolitionist message into the New Testament and dismiss the passages that tell bond-servants to obey their masters as irrelevant is to undermine the authority of passages that “enjoin other social responsibilities.” These truths were especially embarrassing to the kind of Christians who, on the one hand pride themselves on the Christian roots of abolitionism, while on the other hand trying to defend what remains of traditional authority and order against the modernizing influences of those who see the abolitionist movement as the first stage in their perpetual revolution against the “slavery” of marriage, family, and traditional morality.</p>
<p>This embarrassment proved too much for Wesley Pruden, the newspaper’s editor-in-chief. He rebuked and demoted Dr. Francis, cut his salary, and began censoring his columns. In September of that same year, he fired Dr. Francis outright. This time it was not over something he had written in a column but something he had said in a speech the year previously. </p>
<p>In May of 1994, American Renaissance, a monthly periodical devoted to matters of race, intelligence, and immigration hosted its first conference and Dr. Francis was invited to speak. He gave a message entitled “Why Race Matters”, the text of which was later published as an article in the September 1994 issue of American Renaissance. In this speech, he talked about how the culture of Western countries, especially the United States and in particular the South had come under attack, with traditional symbols being attacked, demonized, and replaced, how anti-racism was an effective strategy in a campaign being waged against the white race, how whites themselves were digging “their own racial and civilization grave” through liberalism and leftism, and that a merely cultural strategy in defence of Western civilization would not be sufficient – there needs to be conscious racial element to Western identity as well. He said:</p>
<p>The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that the civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people.</p>
<p>This is so obviously true that one wonders that it needs to be stated. Nevertheless, it was the last straw for Wesley Pruden. The way in which Pruden learned of the remark did not help matters. Dinesh D’Souza, who had attended the conference, wrote a book, The End of Racism, which was published in 1995. D’Souza’s book discussed many of the same issues American Renaissance specializes in, and often took positions similar to theirs. D’Souza was, however, a firm believer in propositional nationalism and the ideal of the United States as a “universal nation”, who objected very much to the idea of defending Western civilization in explicitly racial terms. The chapter in which he talked about the conference contained many distortions – even after D’Souza was force to rewrite the chapter when Jared Taylor andLawrence Auster, along with Dr. Francis, wrote to the publisher to complain of the many ways in which D’Souza had twisted their words. In September of 1995, at the time the book finally saw print and reviews were beginning to appear, an article by D’Souza about the American Renaissance conference appeared in the Washington Post. D’Souza selectively quoted from Dr. Francis’ speech and presented the quotes in a very unfavourable light. And so, Dr. Francis lost his job at theWashington Times.</p>
<p>He remained on the editorial staff of Chronicles, of course, to which he contributed each month, either his “Principalities and Powers” column or a book review or feature article. The Creators Syndicate continued to distribute his column. In the latter he offered his commentary on the news of the day and, while immigration was the issue that he most frequently addressed, he covered a broad gamut of topics, including free trade and globalization, gun control, and the erosion of civil liberties. He supported the presidential candidacies of his friend Patrick Buchanan and kept a watchful eye on the doings of those who actually made it to the White House. Scathing as his criticism of the Clinton administration was, he was no less severe in his assessment of George W. Bush. He contrasted the way in which the Bush administration had expanded its policing powers, undermining the civil liberties of Americans in the process, by means of antiterrorist legislation like the USA PATRIOT Act, with the way in which it refused to use its existing, lawful, powers to control immigration, this contrast being a classic example of anarchotyranny. In 2002 he wrote several columns against the Bush administration’s plans to invade Iraq and when that invasion took place saw his arguments more than justified. His arguments against the war were far more sane, sensible, and interesting than either the neocon arguments for the war or the blithering banalities uttered against it by the left-wing peaceniks. His final column was about George W. Bush’s second inaugural speech and it concluded by saying that Bush had “confirmed once and for all that the neo-conservatism to which he has delivered his administration and the country is fundamentally indistinguishable from the liberalism many conservatives imagine he has renounced and defeated.”</p>
<p>In his Chronicles column, where he had more space to work with, he discussed the same topics at a deeper level. From James Burnham, about whose ideas he had written a book, he had learned much about the nature of power and the elites who inevitably hold it, including the present elite of technocratic managers who preside over the dismantling of the traditions, culture, and civilization of Western societies and rationalize their actions with the universalistic ideology of liberalism. From liberal sociologist Donald Warren he had gleaned insights into how the alliance of the uppermost and lowermost classes in the welfare state was putting the squeeze on the middle class, radicalizing what is ordinarily the most stable of classes, and thus generating a support base that a populist movement could use against the elites. From these insights, Dr. Francis framed his argument for such a populist “revolt from the middle”, bending the cold, hard, theory of Machiavellian power politics to serve ends that was anything but cold and hard – the cause of white, middle class Americans, who were seeing everything they held dear, their culture and religion, traditions and way of life, on every level from the regional to the national, including the constitution of their republic and their habits and institutions of freedom, being mercilessly swept away by elites they seemed powerless to stop. First in the New Right that brought Ronald Reagan into power, and later in the movement that failed to deliver the presidency to Pat Buchanan, he had found movements that could potentially achieve his ends. The dilemma for which he was seeking a solution to the very end of his life, as can be seen in his last “Principalities and Powers” article entitled “Towards a Hard Right”, was how such a movement could gain success without being sidetracked from its goals by corporate globalists dangling the carrot of the free market before its eyes.'

Sam Francis was far more than just the man who thought up a clever name for this phenomenon – he was also its chief chronicler, analyst, and critic. In his twice-weekly column, syndicated by Creators but carried by far fewer newspapers than it ought to have been for reasons we will shortly get into, he provided a bold, uncompromising, commentary, expressed in a dry, sardonic wit that was perfectly complemented by the way he seemed to look out at you with amused disdain through his heavy glasses in the publicity photo attached to his column, on the news and issues of the day and the narrative beneath the news and issues – the ongoing war being waged by those presently in power in the West and particularly in the United States on the traditions, cultures, symbols, and ways of life of Western peoples.

In 1981, following the publication of his The Soviet Strategy of Terror, he left the Heritage Foundation to take a position as legislative assistant to Senator John P. East, R-North Carolina. It was as an expert on national security matters that he was hired to this position but, interestingly, in the course of his work for East he was called upon to write a document that both required this expertise yet also had to do with the cultural and racial concerns on which his later, and lasting, fame rests. In 1983, US President Ronald Reagan signed into law a bill that made the third Monday in January into an American national holiday in honour of Martin Luther King Jr. The bill had been hotly debated, and leading the opposition to the holiday was the other Republican Senator from North Carolina, Jesse Helms. Senator East worked closely with his colleague and mentor in the campaign against this ridiculous holiday and on October 3, 1983, Helms read out in Congress a paper written by Dr. Francis that documented King’s collaboration with Soviet agents and Communist fronts.

Dr. Francis worked for Senator East until the latter’s death in 1986 at which point he joined the staff of the Washington Times. He served the newspaper as an editorial writer, opinion columnist, and editor and it was here that his career started to really take off. His column was nationally syndicated, and his articles won him the Distinguished Writing Award in 1989 and 1990. He was runner up for another award both those years as well. Then, in 1995 all of that came to an end.

It started with his column for June 27, 1995, entitled “All Those Things to Apologize For”. Written one week after the Southern Baptist Convention issued a grovelling apology for the stance they had taken 150 years previously in the controversy over slavery that divided them from the Northern Baptists, this column pointed out that the Baptists were making a big deal about repenting for something never condemned as a sin by the Bible. “Neither Jesus nor the apostles nor the early church condemned slavery,” he wrote, “despite countless opportunities to do so, and there is no indication that slavery is contrary to Christian ethics or that any serious theologian before modern times ever thought it was”. All of this is true. Unfortunately, it is the kind of truth that people in this era cannot bear to hear.

Dr. Francis was not arguing for slavery. He was arguing against what he called a “bastardized version of Christian ethics”, that had appeared in the 18th Century and had so permeated the churches that they “now spend more time preaching against apartheid and colonialism than they do against real sins such as pinching secretaries and pilfering from the office coffee-pool.” He observed, correctly, that to read the abolitionist message into the New Testament and dismiss the passages that tell bond-servants to obey their masters as irrelevant is to undermine the authority of passages that “enjoin other social responsibilities.” These truths were especially embarrassing to the kind of Christians who, on the one hand pride themselves on the Christian roots of abolitionism, while on the other hand trying to defend what remains of traditional authority and order against the modernizing influences of those who see the abolitionist movement as the first stage in their perpetual revolution against the “slavery” of marriage, family, and traditional morality.

This embarrassment proved too much for Wesley Pruden, the newspaper’s editor-in-chief. He rebuked and demoted Dr. Francis, cut his salary, and began censoring his columns. In September of that same year, he fired Dr. Francis outright. This time it was not over something he had written in a column but something he had said in a speech the year previously.

In May of 1994, American Renaissance, a monthly periodical devoted to matters of race, intelligence, and immigration hosted its first conference and Dr. Francis was invited to speak. He gave a message entitled “Why Race Matters”, the text of which was later published as an article in the September 1994 issue of American Renaissance. In this speech, he talked about how the culture of Western countries, especially the United States and in particular the South had come under attack, with traditional symbols being attacked, demonized, and replaced, how anti-racism was an effective strategy in a campaign being waged against the white race, how whites themselves were digging “their own racial and civilization grave” through liberalism and leftism, and that a merely cultural strategy in defence of Western civilization would not be sufficient – there needs to be conscious racial element to Western identity as well. He said:

The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that the civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people.

This is so obviously true that one wonders that it needs to be stated. Nevertheless, it was the last straw for Wesley Pruden. The way in which Pruden learned of the remark did not help matters. Dinesh D’Souza, who had attended the conference, wrote a book, The End of Racism, which was published in 1995. D’Souza’s book discussed many of the same issues American Renaissance specializes in, and often took positions similar to theirs. D’Souza was, however, a firm believer in propositional nationalism and the ideal of the United States as a “universal nation”, who objected very much to the idea of defending Western civilization in explicitly racial terms. The chapter in which he talked about the conference contained many distortions – even after D’Souza was force to rewrite the chapter when Jared Taylor andLawrence Auster, along with Dr. Francis, wrote to the publisher to complain of the many ways in which D’Souza had twisted their words. In September of 1995, at the time the book finally saw print and reviews were beginning to appear, an article by D’Souza about the American Renaissance conference appeared in the Washington Post. D’Souza selectively quoted from Dr. Francis’ speech and presented the quotes in a very unfavourable light. And so, Dr. Francis lost his job at theWashington Times.

He remained on the editorial staff of Chronicles, of course, to which he contributed each month, either his “Principalities and Powers” column or a book review or feature article. The Creators Syndicate continued to distribute his column. In the latter he offered his commentary on the news of the day and, while immigration was the issue that he most frequently addressed, he covered a broad gamut of topics, including free trade and globalization, gun control, and the erosion of civil liberties. He supported the presidential candidacies of his friend Patrick Buchanan and kept a watchful eye on the doings of those who actually made it to the White House. Scathing as his criticism of the Clinton administration was, he was no less severe in his assessment of George W. Bush. He contrasted the way in which the Bush administration had expanded its policing powers, undermining the civil liberties of Americans in the process, by means of antiterrorist legislation like the USA PATRIOT Act, with the way in which it refused to use its existing, lawful, powers to control immigration, this contrast being a classic example of anarchotyranny. In 2002 he wrote several columns against the Bush administration’s plans to invade Iraq and when that invasion took place saw his arguments more than justified. His arguments against the war were far more sane, sensible, and interesting than either the neocon arguments for the war or the blithering banalities uttered against it by the left-wing peaceniks. His final column was about George W. Bush’s second inaugural speech and it concluded by saying that Bush had “confirmed once and for all that the neo-conservatism to which he has delivered his administration and the country is fundamentally indistinguishable from the liberalism many conservatives imagine he has renounced and defeated.”

In his Chronicles column, where he had more space to work with, he discussed the same topics at a deeper level. From James Burnham, about whose ideas he had written a book, he had learned much about the nature of power and the elites who inevitably hold it, including the present elite of technocratic managers who preside over the dismantling of the traditions, culture, and civilization of Western societies and rationalize their actions with the universalistic ideology of liberalism. From liberal sociologist Donald Warren he had gleaned insights into how the alliance of the uppermost and lowermost classes in the welfare state was putting the squeeze on the middle class, radicalizing what is ordinarily the most stable of classes, and thus generating a support base that a populist movement could use against the elites. From these insights, Dr. Francis framed his argument for such a populist “revolt from the middle”, bending the cold, hard, theory of Machiavellian power politics to serve ends that was anything but cold and hard – the cause of white, middle class Americans, who were seeing everything they held dear, their culture and religion, traditions and way of life, on every level from the regional to the national, including the constitution of their republic and their habits and institutions of freedom, being mercilessly swept away by elites they seemed powerless to stop. First in the New Right that brought Ronald Reagan into power, and later in the movement that failed to deliver the presidency to Pat Buchanan, he had found movements that could potentially achieve his ends. The dilemma for which he was seeking a solution to the very end of his life, as can be seen in his last “Principalities and Powers” article entitled “Towards a Hard Right”, was how such a movement could gain success without being sidetracked from its goals by corporate globalists dangling the carrot of the free market before its eyes.

Liang Chen Wishes Me “Gung hay fat choih”: I’m Not Impressed
Christine Elliott Leadership Campaign
Frederick —

Gung hay fat choih! Xīn nián kuài lè!

Today is Chinese New Year – a time when the Chinese-Canadian community celebrates the opportunities a new year brings, and reflects on the year that past.Last year was the Year of the Horse – defined by relentless forward momentum.

2014 was certainly a time of relentless momentum for Christine Elliott: strong endorsements, unmatched fundraising, and tremendous support from across Ontario. It is clear that Christine is the number one choice in the PC leadership race. And her momentum is only growing. Every day, she is signing up new members from across Ontario. She is building the team we need to restore our PC Party to greatness.

To beat the Liberals in 2018, we need to win in the GTA. And to do that, we need to win the hearts and minds of new Canadians.

Christine has received great support from new Canadian communities in Toronto and across Ontario. I have seen her do it firsthand. She shares the values of many in these communities: hard work, strong families, low taxes, entrepreneurial aspiration, and a belief in protecting our most vulnerable. These are shared conservative values.

Christine is the best person who can bring these communities into the Big Blue Tent, and the best person who can win seats in the GTA. We need her if we want to win in 2018.

So renew your membership right now and show your support. If you don’t renew before February 28th, you won’t be able to vote. We can’t afford to lose this race. Let’s keep our momentum going. Join us today.

Sincerely,

Liang Chen
PC Candidate, Scarborough-Agincourt

Dear Mr. Chen & Christine Elliott:

 
I am not impressed with this Chinese New Year stuff.
 
I for one am sick of politically correct politicians catering to minorities while ignoring the values of the party’s traditional Canadian base.
 
So, Christine Elliott wants to be the leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.
 
We need a politician to tell the truth: that massive immigration at a time of high unemployment is cruel to newcomers and an affront to the unemployed; that the horrific traffic gridlock is the result of uncontrolled immigration and almost static infrastructure. 
 
An Ontario leader must advocate for those of us trapped by the horrific traffic gridlock. The time has come to tell the Feds of all parties: We need a moratorium on immigration until we can get our own unemployed, especially recent graduates. into the labour market and  until we can build the roads and public transport to efficiently move the people already here.
 
Instead of a cute greeting in a foreign language, I’d like to hear a promise to to reverse the Liberals’ anti-Christian compulsory indoctrination about homosexuality and transgenderism in the school curriculum as far down as kindergarten, for heaven’s sake. It’s offensive to parents of many religions. It’s offensive to common sense and to healthy kids. It’s another example of politicians favouring minorities and tossing the Majority under the bus.
 
I hope you’ll address these issues, Christine and Liang.

Protesting Chinese Flag at B.C. School Brings Threats From RCMP Political Police

Protesting Chinese Flag at B.C. School Brings Threats From RCMP Political Police
 
Last week, Lisa Glatt sent out an e-mail opposing the actions of a Sooke, BC elementary school flying the flag of communist China. Within a day, she had received the following e-mail from Constable Matt Rowat of the Sooke Detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
 
It was pure and simple police state bullying. As Brad Love has found, approach certain politicians or policy makers with your strongly worded concerns and  they are likely to  … call the police! Whatever happened to a respectful response to concerns from the general public?
 
Constable Rowat says: “Your e-mail regarding the Chinese flag being flown at Journey Middle

School has been brought to our attention, and as such, a police file has

been created.  Please be aware that any threats towards the school will

be taken very seriously and can be considered a hate crime if you

threaten damage or harm to the staff or property of Journey Middle

School.”

This is intimidation. Ms Glatt sends out a protest and learns the political police are now keeping a “police file” on her. Note, these threats are not being made in North Korea or Communist Cuba or even Communist China but in Canada with its Trudeau Charter of Rights and Freedoms that even mentions something about freedom of expression.

Read Ms Glatt’s e-mail again. Do you see any threats aimed at staff, students or property at Journey Middle School? I couldn’t find any either, but she is threatened: “Please be aware that any threats towards the school will be taken very seriously and can be considered a hate crime if you threaten damage or harm to the staff or property.” 

“Any threats?” What about the threat to complain to the local board of education or the Minister of Education or the press?

Canadians have been propagandized that “hate” is wrong, maybe even criminal — we have a free speech suppressing “hate law” (Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code). Well, except that minorities can “hate” or denigrate Christians, Whites or Europeans in general.

Again, look at Ms Glatt’s e-mail. Does she mention hating Chinese or anyone else? No, she opposes the flying of the flag of a foreign country at Journey Middle School and notes, quite correctly, that Canadians were never consulted about making this once overwhelmingly European country “multicultural” or about being reduced to minority status in their own country.

I hope Lisa Glatt is one tough lady. Many people would have butterflies in their stomach being told a “police file” had been opened on them and that “any threats” to the staff or property of Journey Middle School could result in “hate” charges.

The purpose the Constable Rowan’s letter would seem to be intimidation, with the clear message: “Shut up,lady!”

Dear Ms. GLATT,

Your e-mail regarding the Chinese flag being flown at Journey Middle

School has been brought to our attention, and as such, a police file has

be taken very seriously and can be considered a hate crime if you

Welcome to…China? No, actually, welcome to Journey Middle School! in Sooke, BC
 
In efforts to further promote state-sponsored multiculturalism, Journey Middle School (located at: 6522 Throup Road, Sooke, BC  V9Z 0W6) proudly flies the flag of China in order to “welcome” Chinese visitors to their school. 
Looks like at this school, students are receiving an indoctrination (not education) in the early stages of being put though our modern state-operated school system. It is no doubt that schools much like Journey are corrupt, with almost its entire faculty consisting of leftists who abuse their teaching positions as platforms to propagate partisan political agendas to young vulnerable students.
In 1971, Canada became the first country in the world to enact an official policy of multiculturalism. At the time, Canada was 96% European. There was no vote, and there was no referendum. We were never asked, and we never agreed. As in all Western countries, multiculturalism was imposed on us without our consent.

Bell Mobility Pays People in the Philippines to Harass Past Due Subscribers

Bell Mobility Pays People in the Philippines to Harass Past Due Subscribers
 
Canadian telephone/Internet Service Providers are very profitable and are regulated by the government. There have a comfy, quasi-monopoly. Apparently, though, there is neither legal nor moral barriers to offshoring Canadian jobs.
 
If you are a Bell Mobility subscriber and are a bit tardy with your payment, you are setting yourself for a daily harassing call. I tend to be a bit last minute and have been subjected to the daily call pressure.
 
Ring, ring. “Hello.”
 
“Mr. Paul, …” I could tell by the syntax and the almost comical error (Mr. Paul, instead of Mr. Fromm) that the caller who woke me up was not a native speaker of English or even a very successful graduate of ESL.
 
I let it go the first few times, but finally asked: “Where are you calling from?”
 
Three days in a row, I was told by different harassers: “I’m in the Philippines.”

February 15, Fly the Red Ensign — the Flag of the Real Canada Hijacked 50 Years Ago

February 15, Fly the Red Ensign — the Flag of the Real Canada Hijacked 50 Years Ago
 
James Alcock of the Red Ensign Society is urging all traditional Canadians to fly the Red Ensign on Sunday, February 15, the 50th anniversary of its replacement by the Maple Leaf, which looks like a corporate logo, interestingly featuring the colours of the Liberal Party.
 
The ’60s were a trendy time. Anything “new” was in. So, Canada’s lefty Liberal Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson just had to change the flag and bring us a “new” one. However, the change was far more sinister. The Red Ensign beautifully symbolized the Canada of its European founder/settler people: the Christian cross in the Union Jack; the Union Jack reminding us of our British laws and political system; the symbols of French, English, Irish and Scots. The sinister Pearson was about to fling open our doors to the Third World, in immigration changes announced that very year (1965). Canada was to be transformed by stealth into a Third World multicultural hodge podge. It wouldn’t do to have a flag that showed that we were founded, settled and built by people of European origin.
 
Today, I fly and honour the Red Ensign, the flag of the real Canada.

Since it first flew over Parliament Hill on February 15th, 1965, the red and white Maple Leaf Flag has become one of Canada's greatest and most recognizable symbols, and proudly displays Canada as a free and democratic country that is the envy of the world.</p>
<p>On this historic occasion, we, the Liberal Party of Canada, wanted to ensure that it was marked by an appropriate celebration.</p>
<p>To mark this great occasion, we will be celebrating at the University of Toronto - Mississauga Athletic Centre. Doors open at 12:00 pm.</p>

Wow.

I can hardly wait to celebrate the liberal, progressive and flag-changing, Lester B. Pearson’s anti-heritage, anti-root, anti-British replacement of Canada’s once proud and flying, ‘Red Ensign’ that so many young Canadians had died under in Canada’s  foreign wars.

 

I can hardly wait to be there for the Chretien/Trudeau photo-op in the current, yet-to-be-declared, Federal Election Campaign, that will have its voting day before April 7th, when Mike Duffy’s Harper-destroying trial begins.

Unless, PM Stephen Harper harbours a secret, political death-wish, he has got to to take action in the next 3-weeks.
