Arrogance and cowardice form Obama's "side of history"

Mainstream media biases, laziness, and incompetence informs Native protest coverage

On July 13 a new caravan of people will be bussed up to the Unist’ot’en Camp, an activist action camp it’s leaders call a “soft blockade”. Like most similar events, the media hasn’t been doing a good job at covering the camp. Movement-friendly media have been publishing misleading information- like’s post that leaves the reader to believe all of the the Wet’suwet’en people “stand united” against the pipelines, others simply omit the fact that people in the community have opposing views.

Most of the information about the Unist’ot’en camp has been produced by their allies and supporters; many stories come from publications with low moral standards– the result is that there’s been a lot of misinformation circulating around. A prominent activist recently explained his theory to me about why media coverage of these events is often so dismal. Staffing cuts, and the time demands of the 24 hour news cycle can make it difficult for journalists to dig too deep. He suggested to try and encapsulate information for people in the media, “give them some bullet points they can work off, with lots of references”.

In anticipation of a potential conflict at the Unist’ot’en, and in the hope that this will help people better cover the story when it happens, I’ve compiled a list of five things every journalist should know about the camp. It should also be a good guide to those of you who are considering joining the conflict- beware of the risks you take with your dangerous new bedfellows. Not all is as it looks on the surface...

200 retired generals and admirals urge Congress to reject Iran nuclear deal

A group of nearly 200 retired generals and admirals sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday urging lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear agreement, which they say threatens national security.

The letter is the latest in a blizzard of missives petitioning Congress either to support or oppose the agreement with Iran, which would lift sanctions if Iran pared back its nuclear program. Letters have come from ad hoc groupings of rabbis, nuclear scientists, arms-control and nonproliferation experts — and now, retired senior military officers, many of whom have worked in the White House during various administrations dating to the 1980s.

The letter, addressed to Republican and Democratic leaders in the Senate and the House, is a response to one sent last week by three dozen retired senior military officers who support the nuclear deal.

“The agreement will enable Iran to become far more dangerous, render the Mideast still more unstable and introduce new threats to American interests as well as our allies,” the letter states...

A Polish journalist describes Hamas' use of human shields

...I was sitting with other journalists in a cafe outside one of the hotels near the beach. During wartime, these hotels are occupied by foreign press and some NGOs. Every hotel is full and in its cafes many journalists spend their time discussing, writing, editing stories or just recharging the phones. Suddenly I saw a man firing a rocket from between the hotels. It was obvious that we journalists became a target. If the IDF would strike back, we all would be dead. What would Hamas do? It would not be surprising to hear about the “cruel Zionist regime killing innocent and free press.”...

NDP candidate for Don Valley East's facebook page listed support for three 2014 anti-Israel/pro-terrorist events

The word came down hard and heavy to every NDP and Liberal candidate in the upcoming federal election to go through their social media accounts and start purging embarrassing posts.

That came in the aftermath of disgraced Liberal candidate Ala Buzreba's resignation following exposure of a series of hateful twitter postings she had made. The 21 year-old originally claimed they were youthful indiscretions, but it soon emerged that as recently as a year ago, she had told Jewish journalist Ezra Levant, whose family has been in Canada for over a century, to "pack up and leave to Israel."

Buzreba's fall was only a few days after NDP candidate Morgan Wheeldon was given the heave-ho as the party's candidate in Kings-Hauts for his anti-Israel and anti-Canadian social media postings. All three major political parties have had bozo eruptions from their candidates. But the NDP in particular, both for the number of candidates doing it and the demented viciousness of things they've said or written in the past, has a cache of crazy that beats the others by an order of magnitude.

As the election campaign draws closer to its finish on October 19, more and more information about how unqualified and irresponsible Tom Mulcair's potential caucus is looking.

Today's example is the NDP candidate for Don Valley East, Khalid Ahmed, who recently purged from his facebook events page, support for three viciously anti-Israel events last year which were co-organized by the pro-terrorist Palestine House.

In 2012, the federal government ended its relationship with Palestine House because of that organization's support for terror and antisemitism.

The events Ahmed supported were protests outside the Israeli consulate in Toronto at which Israel was slandered as an apartheid state, something the Canadian government considers an antisemitic slur.  The participants at these protests routinely expressed support for terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah. Indeed the other organizer of the events was the so-called "Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid" a loose grouping of antisemites, academic imbeciles, anti-western socialist extremists, and mentally ill hatemongers.

The events in question also featured accusations of Israel being like Nazi Germany and deranged antisemitic conspiracy theories.

Though Ahmed recently purged the events from his facebook page, they were captured in the screenshot below:

Canada didn't get stolen by Prime Minister Stephen Harper

...Can’t tell you how often on Facebook I’ve seen some variant of this posted: “We have to take our country back!” 
Seriously? How did Stephen Harper steal your country? 
Let’s run through the arguments. 

1. The New York Times doesn’t respect us anymore.

Well … good. 

2. We don’t do a lot of UN peacekeeping.

I would argue the UN — at best a noble failed experiment, at worst a corrupt body whose primary task is promoting hatred for Jews on the world stage — isn’t worth anybody’s time. 
As for the efficacy of peacekeeping, I refer you to the Rwandan genocide.

3. Harper won’t give government employees the unfettered ability to communicate with the public unsupervised.

If you work for a big oil company downtown, are you allowed to call a press conference to discuss global warming whenever you feel like it?

Didn’t think so.

4. Harper doesn’t like the CBC.

Well … who the hell does? It’s not 1955 anymore and genuine Canadian voices in the culture — like Trailer Park Boys — are doing just fine on Netflix, thank you very much.

The Toronto Star Wants To Promote Retarded Jewish Values

There's an old Jewish joke about a woman asking one of her friends about her three sons.

"My first son is a genius, he's a doctor, he's head of Cardiology at the hospital. I'm so proud of him!" says Sadie about her eldest child.

"How's your second son doing?" asks the woman.

"He's just average, he became a lawyer," Sadie answers.

"And what about your third son?" the woman inquires.

"Him? He's retarded, " shrugs Sadie.

"I'm so sorry!" the woman responds, " How is he getting by?"

"Oh, he's managing," says Sadie, "he's a social worker."

I'm relaying that joke, and offending battalions of "social justice warriors" by using the "r word," (which, by the way, leftie activist types, everyone uses about you behind your back,) because of an article in yesterday's Toronto Star. It was written by a Ben Carniol, who is Professor Emeritus of Social Work at Ryerson University, which by the standards of that joke would make him Grand Duke of the Retards.

The article by Professor Carniol asserts the Prime Minister Stephen Harper's "ideology and attitudes" are out of step with Jewish values. Using the mangled, pompous and, dare I say, retarded reasoning one would expect from a Social Work professor, it basically boils down to the fact that Carniol doesn't like Harper or his policies, Carniol is Jewish, therefore Harper's values are un-Jewish.

Harper being out of step with Jewish values will come as a tremendous surprise to the majority of Jews and rabbis in Canada who enthusiastically support the Prime Minister and his government. Under Harper's tenure as Prime Minister, Canada has taken the firmest stand against antisemitism of any country on the globe. The Harper government has been an exceptionally strong supporter of Israel in its travails against its antidemocratic enemies. Though that support may be galling to Grand Duke Carniol, it is of substantial comfort to the overwhelming majority of Canadian Jews who see the Jewish state besieged both by murderous terror states like Iran and their Hezbollah and Hamas proxies, and hateful western academic bigots who advocate for Israel's destruction.

Carniol is bothered by Harper's support for Israel because of the suffering of the Palestinians. The tragic situation of the Palestinians is indeed troubling and all people of goodwill hope for a peaceful resolution to the conflict between them and Israel. But the Palestinians' woes are not of Harper's making, nor are they exacerbated by his support for Israel.

Someday there will be an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank next to an Israeli one. But before that can happen, a full commitment to peace and the bonds of trust must occur. Israel does need to make more effort to engage with the Palestinians in the West Bank. However, that is made exceptionally difficult when Palestinians routinely advocate violence, refuse to participate in sincere, serious negotiations, and they literally name public squares after terrorists who murder Jewish children. If there is blame to be placed for that, it belongs on an abysmal Palestinian leadership and their useful idiot enablers in the west who have embarked on a campaign to isolate Israel, not on the Israeli nor Canadian governments.

Other examples of Harper's out-of-steppiness with His Grand Ducal Highness' values are conflicts with a mushy-headed, nebulous notion of social justice about certain environmental policies and some canards about Harper's dealings with Canada's First Nations. Oddly enough, Harper's reforms and policies towards the First Nations are substantial improvements over those of the previous two Prime Ministers, Chretien and Martin, but only Harper is bestowed the anti-Jewish label by Perfessur Carniol.

Actually, if you look at what Carniol has to say and the politicized nature of his concept of "social justice," it becomes immediately apparent the Social Work professor has determined that "Jewish values" coincide precisely with NDP policy positions. That's amusingly ironic, or more to the point, outright ridiculous, considering that of the three major political parties in Canada, the NDP is easily the most antisemitic and anti-Israel.

Carniol uses the sleazy smear that the pastor of Harper's church claimed, "that the Muslim faith authorizes the persecution of Christians, and that the Muslim world wants to gain world dominance," as another example of why the Prime Minister is out of step with "Jewish values."  Personally, I think it's more of an example of why Professor Carniol personifies that old social worker joke. If Barack Obama shouldn't be tainted by his pastor's declaring, "God damn America," then why on earth should Harper be held accountable for his pastor's comments about Islam?

Beyond that, if Perfessur Carniol wanted to do some real exploration on the subject, he might discover that it's actually the Koran and a vast number of Islamic imams and scholars who authorize the persecution of Christians and who seek world dominance for Islam. But maybe being a retired Social Work professor keeps Carniol too busy to keep up with news about ISIS, Hezbollah, Iran, Christians being sentenced to death for blasphemy in Pakistan, and so on.

Using the feeble, subjective term "Tikun Olam" or "heal the world" by which far-left-wing Jews try hide their political activism under the fake mantle of religious obligation, Harper is not healing the world in the way Grand Duke Carniol would like.

But the world Ben Carniol wants isn't necessarily a good one, nor a just one. It's Carniol's own personal idea of a better world.

Not every Jew is a self-hating, kvetching caricature of Woody Allen. And thank God for that. Being a parody of a pop-culture leftist stereotype isn't the same as Jewish values. It's just what The Toronto Star and Ben Carniol would like you to believe they are.

NDP MP as guilty as Duffy: Pat Martin used donations from unions to pay off debt from defamation law suit

For months the NDP has been railing against Mike Duffy for accepting a gift — from Nigel Wright — to pay off his debt for inappropriately claiming a Senate living allowance.

Well, it looks like one of their own has done the same thing — sort of.

According to the Ottawa Citizen, New Democrat MP Pat Martin, received cash gifts from several unions to pay off debts incurred with regard to a defamation law suit against him for accusing an Edmonton call centre of being behind the Guelph robocall scandal...
