The Word Soldiers

The most powerful soldiers in the country today are the word soldiers. These soldiers can mow down any opposition, win every battle and put the enemy to flight. When they go on the attack most everyone runs for cover. Who are these word soldiers? They are the media army always ready to suppress opinions they do not like. The minute anyone steps out of line and opposes their propaganda, their metaphor missiles take deadly aim. They never miss their targets for they have endless supplies of word ammunition and have launching platforms for their messages to suppress views they do not like.

These soldiers of the media army are in the T.V newsrooms, The Radio Stations and The Newspapers. They are always at the ready. Whenever the normal people attack media approved doctrines such as unnatural lifestyles, the killing of the child in the womb, "legalizing" same-sex marriage, or other media approved nonsense, the big guns of the word soldiers go into action. They take no prisoners. They are the media army of the politically correct. Many of the people of the land—constantly bombarded with their heavy artillery words—have been brainwashed into submission. Many people, after surrendering, buy the word soldiers propaganda sheets and listen to them on the broadcasting networks.

The word soldiers can also be heard on discussion panels around the land, interviewing each other on politically correct issues and disseminating their "wisdom" to the watching and listening masses. One such media outlet, the Collective Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is well known for its battalions of word soldiers. You can be sure in this war against truth, the CBC will be in the front line, as will Communal Television (CTV) and Glow-Bull Television (GTV.)  All the news soldiers of the media army are efficient in word assassination. Propaganda wins in any war and the word soldiers are constantly at war, shutting down or ridiculing opposing voices.

The word soldiers spring into immediate action whenever there is an exposure of the  politically correct media agenda. When an emergency occurs the media word troops are parachuted into action. The fiery attack words come in waves: "bigot," "homophobic," "bile," "disgusting," "lunatic," "neanderthal," "extreme," "outrageous," "beyond the pale," “hypocrite,” “loony-tune,"  "repugnant beliefs," “nutbar”—the word weaponry is awesome to behold. Every epithet in the media arsenal is sometimes used to take down any dissident who contradicts or criticizes the media-approved message. The victims surrender, riddled with word bullets, and some retreat into silence never again to raise their voice.  Very few can stand up to this propaganda firepower. The word soldiers of the media army take no prisoners in their battle for word control and propaganda supremacy, and some even get medals for being the “best” in the media world of word soldiers.

Are We Seeing Institutionalized Corruption and Treachery?

“The largest banks have become too big to prosecute because of the impact criminal charges would have on confidence in them, Britain’s most senior bank regulator has admitted.” [8] Harry Wilson, Telegraph U.K., December 14, 2012.

Financial Corruption:

The financial system has been pillaged and looted by financial criminals and none have gone to jail. In the Libor “racket” [1] some of them have paid large fines and continue to operate in the financial world. Other financial institutions have been involved in laundering drug money and financing terrorism [2] but still no jail time ensues. Many banks have been bailed out with taxpayers’ dollars, and many taxpayers have lost their homes their jobs and seen their pension funds and their savings go into the dumpster (no bailouts for them) because of the financial banditry by these monetary reprobates.  Some of these monetary manipulators have been known to advise governments, and goofy governments take their advice and impose austerity on their own people.

The people of Greece, Ireland, and other countries are subjected to austerity imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) which in turn is financed by the taxpayers’ dollars of various countries. Was there ever a sweeter set up than this kind of system where taxpayers who pay the wages of the IMF cabal are punished by this same crony cabal of pin striped suited bankers?’ If it wasn’t so ridiculous it would be laughable, but unfortunately it is no joke. The jokers in charge are the money changers who wage monetary war in the name of austerity.

The War Business Corruption:

“First, the [Libyan] war is illegal under the United States constitution and our War Powers Act, because only the US Congress has the authority to declare war and the president has been unable to show that the US faced an imminent threat from Libya.” -Dennis Kucinich, American Congressman, writing in the Guardian U.K Newspaper July 6, 2011.

Illegal wars are started under the slogans of “humanitarian missions” and “responsibility to protect.” A country is laid waste and men women and children are slaughtered in the name of “bringing democracy,” and the end result is a civil war. Dictators are propped up and supplied with weapons to terrorize their own people by the friendly politicians [3] in the western “democracies.”

The Ottawa Citizen of April 23, 2011 had this headline: “DND reports reveal Canada's ties with Gadhafi.  The article went on to say, “Western politicians have labelled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi a despot and a brutal dictator, but Defence Department reports portray him in another way--as a staunch ally in the war against al-Qaeda and Islamic extremism.”

Still, the time had come to replace the dictator, who formerly was their friend and “staunch ally” so the “good guys” teamed up with their supposed enemy, the bad guys [4], and bombed Libya back to the dark ages. [5] But hey, these are the “good guys” in partnership with the bad guys and if they kill innocent children [6] in the process they can always apologise. So what is really going on? First the “good guys” supply the dictator with weapons then they unseat him in partnership with a supposed enemy. Now the Al- Qaeda flag is flying over Libya, [7] and nobody is held accountable for the horrific mess. Though one courageous politician did have the courage to speak out:

“A US lawmaker fiercely opposed to NATO’s role in the Libya conflict called Tuesday for the alliance’s military chiefs to be held to account under international law for the deaths of Libyan civilians.

“Otherwise we will have witnessed the triumph of a new international gangsterism,” Democratic Representative Dennis Kucinich, a leading opponent in the US Congress to Washington’s role in the fighting, said in a statement.” [7a]

Political Treachery?

Are we seeing political treachery being enacted? Can the people of any country have confidence in a government that does not obey the will of the people?

Example: The people of Ireland voted No to joining the European Union. This vote was not acceptable to the elites and the people of Ireland were subjected to another vote that culminated in a Yes vote. Therefore, one has to ask: Why was the No vote unacceptable? Were there other forces behind the scenes determined to subvert democracy and did they succeed? And could one call this abrogation of the original No vote, a case of political treason?

Another example: Some countries now in the European Union never asked their citizens whether they wanted to join. In fact, “Bloomberg Business Week” of June 13, 2008, stated, “Ireland is the only country in Europe to hold a referendum on the treaty.” Now in the E.U. national sovereignty has been surrendered to technocrats, bureaucrats, bankers and the unelected. The Euro Observer of December 9, 2011 stated, “…almost all fiscal policy-making would be taken out of the hands of national assemblies and delivered up to European civil servants.” The people are being betrayed by their puppet political “leaders.” Democracy has been ditched and I believe political treason abounds.

We also see “free trade” deals being negotiated between countries in secret. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) [9] is one “secret” deal and there are others. Parliaments are being bypassed and I believe national sovereignty surrendered. [9A] A deal is signed with a communist dictatorship [10] and “free enterprise” capitalists’ consort with communists as do many politicians. [11] Ethics, principle, morality and human rights are tossed aside in the race for bloodstained profits. There are many more examples that could be quoted about the treachery I believe is being enacted today. I have only shown a few. In closing one has to ask, are we seeing institutionalized corruption and treachery?

Are They Armchair Assassins?

They watch computer screens in cozy armchairs
Are they Armchair Assassins in their secure lairs?
Are they operators of death and destruction?
Are they “legalized” hitmen? Do they have no compunction?

Some of their “work” hours are nine to five
They press their buttons and bring death to the alive
Sometimes they kill children, “but it’s all a mistake”
An apology will be issued for any “errors” they make

Collateral damage is the deceptive words used
When innocents are slaughtered and murdered too
Some even call this “responsibility to protect”
Then they praise this hellish and sick effect

But hey, these are the “good guys,’’ do they sanction murder?
Where is the law? Are we seeing a disorder?
Is there no respect for life, and human decency?
Can killing be “legitimized” instead of being an obscenity?

 Is something very wrong in this world today?
Can authorized killing be legal anyway?
No pleas, No trials, No laws, No courts of justice
Can an illegal death sentence be totally callous?

Do we have “official” terrorists: name calling terrorists?
Has murder been incorporated amongst the “best” of us?
We all better think and perhaps beware
Are there state approved assassins in comfortable armchairs?

A Christmas Present to Chinese Communists

“Canada approved China's biggest overseas energy acquisition, a $15.1 billion takeover by state-owned CNOOC of Canadian oil and gas producer Nexen…” [4]  CBS News, December 7, 2012

Hello Canadians!  Were you impressed by PM Stephen Harper’s early Christmas present to a State Owned Enterprise (SOE) of Communist China? Do you feel good about part of your country being given away and then described as a “net benefit” to Canada? Has anybody seen the definition of “net benefit” explained? Do we have to ask the Chinese to “explain” the “deal” as our Industry Minister told us to? [1] Were you impressed seeing Stephen Harper at a news conference podium, inscribed with the words “A STRONG CANADA”? Did you wonder how our country can be “strong” if we allow some of our resources to be owned by a communist dictatorship? Is that not a sign of being ethically challenged and morally weak? Still, “A STRONG CANADA” is an excellent marketing slogan and no doubt most of the media fell for it. I did not hear any of them asking how our land can be “strong” if we surrender our resources without debate in parliament and ignore the people of this country, who according to a poll were “73%” opposed. [2] Still, we are told we live in a “democracy.” But are we seeing hypocrisy? PM Stephen Harper is on record as saying this:

"I don't think Canadians want us to sell out important Canadian values -- our belief in democracy, freedom, human rights. They don't want us to sell that out to the almighty dollar.'' -- Stephen Harper talking about relations with China in 2006 [3]

Then just the other day Stephen Harper says this:

"To be blunt, Canadians have not spent years reducing ownership of sectors of the economy by our own governments only to see them bought and controlled by foreign governments instead.”[4]

Is our great leader confused? He just approved a part of our country to bebought and controlled” by a “foreign” communist government. Still, he did say, “the [Harper] government would only consider future takeover deals in the oil sands by state-owned companies in exceptional circumstances.” [4] Gee, it gets curiouser and curiouser here in Tory Wonderland. I wonder, what does “exceptional circumstances” mean? But hey, in Tory Wonderland words can mean anything you want them to mean. It could be called a BS marketing ploy or an attempt to baffle the people. Just make the words sound good and all will be well. And it was. In fact, I heard a media panel on a political show say they were in agreement with the communist SOE deal (as are most other corporate mainstream media as well). Maybe this media “scrum” was competing for an Order of Canada award or a Senate seat.  Just kidding, but who knows?

Anyway, the “deal” is done and none of the “conservative” MPs spoke out on opposition to this handover to a bloodthirsty communist regime, though one keeps hearing some were against it. One would have thought they would have had the moral courage to speak out and oppose it and the undemocratic way it was done: No debate in parliament and no public consultation. How can these “conservative” MPs look in the mirror at their own faces without being disgusted with themselves? Does allegiance to Mr. Harper mean more to them than allegiance to their country’s democratic tradition?  Still, it is the season of goodwill and giving, and I believe the Harper “conservatives” gave the Chinese Communists a Christmas present from Canada by approving the communist SOE deal. But, cheer up everybody: we are getting two Pandas on loan so that should be a “net benefit” to us all. So Merry Christmas Canada!

A CPC Comrade’s Letter to the CPC of Canada Hurrah! Our SOE Passed the “Net Benefit” Test (Satire) By Stephen J. Gray

Dear Comrades of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC). This is my second letter to you. [1] How are things in Panda Land? Panda-ring well I hope. Hey, just a silly pun on our loan of two pandas to you; anyway, on to my reason for writing.

As a good communist of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and supporter of our State Owned Enterprises (SOEs), I wish to thank you for approving one of our SOEs.  I hear it passed your “net benefit” test with flying red colours. We are so grateful in the communist party that your great leader and Chairman did allow some of your country’s resources into our hands. I liked the way he did it, without any input by the people or your parliament. We operate the same way in our Politburo so our “strategic partnership” should be beneficial to all the elites concerned. I would also like to thank the business leaders and many of your media propagandists in your country who supported this deal between capitalism and communism. One clever fellow even said it was “no big deal.” He obviously appreciates how we run our country.

Many of these people would make good communists. In fact your media propagandists, just like our state-owned media, are quite similar in many ways. Ownership is in a few hands and they parrot some of the same views we do. I especially like your Irrational Post, the Glib and Mail, and the Red Star. I hope I got their names correct; if not I sincerely apologise.  I believe that old saying is very true: “birds of a feather flock together”—though we are not birds, but all comrades together bound by our common greed; pardon me, I mean need. We need your resources and you need our communist money. Some people say “bloodstained money is the root of all evil” but they are just losers who do not like imposed order. In an ordered society the masses must be ruled with an iron fist and your Chairman, just like our famous Chairman Mao, does not allow dissent in his party. Nor does he like it in his country.

I know there are some in your country who babble on about the lack of human rights in my country and the use of torture, slave labour and forced abortions, as well as our one child policy. But it is no good the kettle calling the pot black, as the saying goes. You also have your ugly side. There was an article that said about your country, “Canada’s official statistics agency has confirmed that 491 babies died after they were born alive during abortions…” [2] And your country even gave its highest award to an abortionist. In fact, your country does not even wish to discuss “when human life begins.” And your great leader and Chairman voted against finding out when life begins. He obviously prefers to be ignorant rather than informed. But hey, great leaders are allowed to be ignorant; that’s why leaders are great. Still, the people need to be re-educated on the facts of life, and that wisdom always comes from the great Chairman. Politics and business are above the concerns of the masses, and monetary power and political power go hand in hand. Ethics, principles, morality and human rights have no place in a “net benefit” test, that’s why we have re-education camps in our country.

Now that we are going to be firmly ensconced in your country we could help your great leader and Chairman set up some re-education camps if he so wishes.  After all, he did at one time criticize us, but did see the error of his ways, so obviously he had a great conversion to our system and now we are classed as a “friend” and “ally.” So you see, villains can become virtuous if the right propaganda, oops I mean attempts, are made to give them respect. Does that make sense?  Anyway, it doesn’t really matter we are all in bed together now, a ménage a trois of politicians, Big Business, and Media. A threesome of communism, capitalism and propaganda joined together to support and promote each other in a world of hypocrisy and deceit.  I hope I am coming across like a true communist. Or as one of your respected business leaders once said, “now we can get down to business.”

In closing, I must say I am very impressed with most of your propagandists; pardon me, I believe you call them journalists. Most of them promoted our State Owned Enterprise (SOE) having access to your resources. In fact, one journalist inferred that those who opposed it were hypocrites. This is the kind of rhetoric we like to use in the communist party against those who dissent. It is gratifying to see your propagandists act the same way. This is very good and helps to confuse the reality of what is really going on: our takeover of some of your resources and part of your country. As I said earlier, many of your promoters of our SOEs would make good communists. And as good communists we censor the internet in our country. I see it has been reported in your country that you are also trying to censor information:

“NDP MP Charlie Angus said it is disturbing the government is forcing internet companies to remove content, saying it is the kind of thing usually done by authoritarian regimes.” [3]

Anyway, as the season of goodwill and happy holidays approaches, this Comrade of the CPC wishes the Comrades of the CPC in Canada a Happy Comrades Season. The same applies to your Big Business Comrades and your media propagandists. May we all prosper in our “strategic partnership” and perhaps our countries some day could merge and become one big State Owned Enterprise (SOE).  We could call it CanChin or ChinCan; anyway, that is just a thought. But who knows what may happen down this “strategic partnership” road.

Yours in Solidarity: A CPC comrade.

491 Murders that the Mainstream Media Ignored

“Pro-life advocates are calling for a federal investigation after Canada’s official statistics agency has confirmed that 491 babies died after they were born alive during abortions between 2000 and 2009.” [1] Lifesite News, Patrick B. Crane, November 28, 2012.

One would have thought the so-called “investigative media” would have been all over this story and that it would have been headline news. Still, Canada’s media have been busy lately writing about the sled dogs slaughter and the sentencing of the dogs’ killer. Granted, the dog story is an important issue, but surely the slaughter and killing of 491 innocent human lives by abortionists is worthy of publicity also? But no, sadly the killing of these tiny humans did not rate a mention by the mainstream media’s written word or TV news.

Something is deadly wrong in our society today when a mass killing of this magnitude is covered up, or missed by the mainstream media. One wonders if it had been 491 dogs slaughtered or left to die—would the media have missed the story then? Based on their reporting on the killing of animals I don’t believe so. In fact, many media show their bias in favour of abortion.  Consider an editorial headlined “The Abortion debate is over so shut up” in Vancouver Province of November 20, 2012, which stated,

“Anti-abortionists need to get this through their skulls: the debate is over and you lost. Women long ago won the right to have control over their bodies, and the choice about whether and when to have children, and Canadians massively support that right. Abortion is not murder, so get over it. [2]

Oh really? I wonder what the Province editorialists think about the 491 babies who survived abortion but were left to die. But hey, the Province tells us, “Abortion is not murder, so get over it.” Perhaps that is why the story of the 491 babies who survived abortion is not headlines in the Province newspaper.

I believe if we had any ethics in this country, we would stop pretending that killing by “choice” is okay. We would call this abominable word “abortion” what it really is, the suctioning out, the cutting up, and the carving to pieces of innocent human lives. The gory killings would have to be shown by our so-called “investigative media" instead of them covering up the evidence.  The medical butchers would be put on trial. So one has to ask why there has been no homicide charges laid against those who committed the atrocities against the 491 innocent human lives.
