Searching for Truth and Accountability in Nonsenseland

“There is but an inch of difference between the cushioned chamber and the padded cell” – G.K. Chesterton.

Nonsenseland was in a state of turmoil, the police were searching for information on alleged, “bribery, fraud and breach of trust.” Hundreds of political emails were released into the public domain and the residents of the Land were seeing some of the inner workings of their “law and order” government. Much of the information was not pretty to read. It seemed a certain honourable person had been billing the taxpayers quite a lot and “was getting paid for meals he ate in his own house...”  Still, we cannot have a hungry politician, can we? But hey, a politician has to eat and what better way to do it than bill the taxpayers when feeling hungry? Ordinary people have to go to food banks when they need food. Therefore, the answer for them is, get elected and they will never be hungry again! Because in Nonsenseland, it seems the political class are “entitled to their entitlements.”

Anyway, it seems this honourable guy’s “entitlements” have been causing the leader of the Land a bit of bother. He was asked, did he know about monies being paid to cover this honourable person’s expenses? The leader replied that he “did not know” and seemed astonished and dumbfounded that this had happened. Yet, in the leader’s office there were a number of his political appointees who knew all about this arrangement. What was going on? Why did these trusted advisers keep the leader in the dark? Was there some type of conspiracy? Was truth a victim and lies a victor in the most important and highest office in Nonsenseland? In fact, the policeman investigating this tangled web of possible deceit had said the evidence from one honourable player was “ not consistent with the facts.” Did this mean, an honourable person was lying? Surely not! After all, this was Nonsenseland where the spoken word could be nonsensical.

Still, Nonsenseland was no stranger to scandals. The previous government had been immersed in scandal and had been punished by the taxpayers by being voted out of office. Yet, this “new” government had preached “accountability”  and “rule of law” now some people were wondering was “accountability” and “rule of law” just B.S. to fool the masses.

Unfortunately, the masses in Nonsenseland were victims of politicians. They voted these people into power then they were punished by these same politicians. Yet, the people, ever faithful turned out at election time for more of the same. Was this a form of political masochism? At one time there had been a chance of referendum and recall in the Land, but this had been conveniently ditched when the politicians merged into the one big political party that was now in power. So now there was no hope of recalling politicians or having referendums anymore on their conduct. And the present leader of Nonsenseland could not be recalled even if the people wanted to do so.

Some people were now wondering was the word “accountability” just another word to placate and fool the people into believing all was well in Nonsenseland. When in reality, based on the evidence in the political emails released, some of their honourable political masters and some of their powerful appointees were up to no good. Still, this was Nonsenseland where nonsense was acceptable and accountability was just a word that sounded good, and the truth was proving hard to find.

Censored TV (CTV) Covers up the Slaughtered Victims

One can see and read in the media about the slaughtered victims of wars, genocide, bomb blasts and numerous other atrocities. But when it comes to the slaughter of the innocents by abortion, media censorship takes place.  Such was the case by Censored TV (CTV) recently in Chilliwack, B.C. [1]

Some courageous young people in Chilliwack were distributing postcards door to door in Chilliwack, showing the heinous atrocity of abortion alongside a photo of a Rwandan genocide victim. CTV covered up the grisly abortion photo.

A few people complained about the postcards and one woman was quoted as saying,

“There ought to be a bylaw, or a fine,” said Mallory, who says she’s just lucky she got to the photo before her children. “It was gruesome, gory and violent. These images could be very damaging to young kids.” CTV News, November 16, 2013. [1]

One can respect this woman’s right to free speech but what does she think is happening in Canada’s abortuaries?  The killings are “gruesome, gory and violent.” Over 100,000 innocent lives are slaughtered yearly in lawless Canada by abortionists; this is certainly “very damaging” to the innocent victims who are cut to pieces, decapitated whose body parts are suctioned out. Yet this lady believes “there ought to be a bylaw, or a fine” for showing the truth of what is happening in a depraved Canada, a country that has no law on abortion and sanctions infanticide. [2]

The Censored TV (CTV) article goes on to say, “Mallory said she had talked to a variety of people in her neighbourhood who were turned off by the postcard...” Which surely must be true, for what decent person would not be “turned off” by what is happening within the blood-soaked walls of Canada’s abortion chambers?  Still, it would be nice if those who object to the truth being shown in Canada would address their righteous indignation to those who are carrying out and supporting these gory atrocities under the banner of “choice.”

Still, maybe one day the media and Censored TV (CTV) will start doing what they are supposed to be doing: “Searching for Truth” and get around to showing the bodies of the innocent victims that they have covered up for so long. Then perhaps this uncivilized country called Canada will pass a law protecting the most vulnerable in our society today, the pre-born child in the womb, and pro-abortion propaganda from the media will finally be

Uproar in Nonsenseland

Nonsenseland was in an uproar.  The leader of its largest city was seen on video supposedly smoking crack cocaine. Then another video surfaced where the city leader was using threatening words and obscene language and threatening to kill.  Many people were supposedly horrified. Was the city not all it was cracked up to be? Was dopiness a prerequisite for public office? Were the people dopey to have elected this person? Surely not! After all, this was Nonsenseland and anything goes in Nonsenseland! [1]

Meanwhile in Nonsenseland’s parliament, (in one of its infrequent sessions) the leader of the country was under attack for appointing some senators whose expenses were called outrageous and some who seemed to have problems knowing where their principal residences were. Still, home is where the heart is, as the saying goes, and these people were right at home in taxpayers’ haven. Unfortunately, they lost their seats for two years, in this house of “sober second thought” after their senatorial friends voted to punish them. But, they would still be allowed to collect their pensions and health benefits and the ordinary taxpayers would pay for them. Some people thought this was ridiculous, but, this was Nonsenseland where being ridiculous was acceptable.

Others, were thinking where is the accountability? Still, accountability questions were raised in parliament about who knew what, about, checks being signed by the leader’s representatives. The leader said he knew nothing or very little about all these happenings and blamed it on a guy he appointed. Even though he was in charge of these appointed people he continued to plead ignorance. This was quite acceptable because this was Nonsenseland where it seemed ignorance is a virtue.

Then more uproar was heard in Nonsenseland. It seemed the boyish Liberal leader had professed “admiration” for the Chinese dictatorship while talking to a women’s only conference. This caused a bit of a rumpus and a prominent Tory and others got quite upset at the Liberal boyo. Forgetting that their talking Tory “pit bull” had also described the Chinese dictatorship as a “friend’ and a “ally” and that their Tory leader had formed a “strategic partnership" [2]  with the Chinese dictatorship. So really, is there very little moral difference between Liberal or Tory? Do they both speak the same B.S., but only their party names are different? Still, this is Nonsenseland where hypocrisy is natural and normal.

Meanwhile in another part of  Nonsenseland there was uproar over a proposed “Charter of Values” by a provincial government. This charter would have no values except those mandated by the State. Some people were wondering if this was a society in state of collapse? [3] Or was this just more noisy nonsense in Nonsenseland?

Did the Party Faithful Cheer and Applaud the Loss of National Sovereignty and more...?

Did the Party Faithful Cheer and Applaud the Loss of National Sovereignty and more...?
By Stephen J. Gray

“This transatlantic trade deal is a full-frontal assault on democracy...It would allow a secretive panel of corporate lawyers to overrule the will of parliament and destroy our legal protections. Yet the defenders of our sovereignty say nothing.” – George Monbiot, The Guardian, U.K. Nov. 4, 2013.

[Note: The above words could also apply to the Canada, E.U. trade deal. It has been touted as a “template” for the TTIP.]

I watched a speech recently by a political leader at a convention and listened to the cheers and the applause. The leader addressed the assembled party faithful as “friends,” numerous times, and they cheered with delight his every word.
The leader boasted of signing  The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) that was negotiated in “secret.” [1] Though some details have now been tabled.
The people of the country have been told they will not get to vote on it. Their country is being “integrated” economically with numerous other countries, with a possible loss of national sovereignty and these true believers cheered!  Even though their “leader” is on record as saying this about national sovereignty: I know some people don’t like it, it’s a loss of national sovereignty” [2]
Meanwhile, another “secretive” trade deal [3] is being negotiated, that reportedly is also a danger to national sovereignty.  Therefore, one has to ask: Are the party members happy in their ignorance? Do they care more for their leader than their country?

“And the negotiations over CETA could be used as a template for future trade deals, most obviously the planned Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership [TTIP] between the United States and the EU, discussion of which began in July.” The Economist, October 26, 2013.

Their leader also boasted of his party’s “law and order” agenda and protection for “victims.” And the true believers cheered. Meanwhile, in their “civilized” country 491 babies [4] were born alive after abortionists failed to kill them. It would appear that there is “no law and order” for these tiny innocents. The country has no law on the protection of pre-born human life and the leader of the party does not want to speak of “when human life begins.” And still, the party members applaud this person. Is this a leader who couldn’t care less about innocent human life?  Are the party members wilfully blind to this heinous atrocity that has been committed? Do they have functioning consciences? Do they see no evil and hear no evil amongst their camaraderie?

“The forces of Evil have begun their decisive offensive, you can feel their pressure, and yet your screens and publications are full of prescribed smiles and raised glasses. What is the joy about?”
Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Still, the “joy” is almost overpowering about the “hidden” and “secretive” trade deals. Most of the corporate media are going ga-ga over them. The party faithful cheer and applaud in unison while their country’s national sovereignty appears to be signed away. And the people of the country will not be allowed to vote on these deals, that have been called a,
