Cuckservatives hired PR firm to "seek and destroy" People's Party

Canada's self-styled "national newspaper", the Globe and Mail, reported Friday that Mr Kinsella and his Daisy Group consulting firm worked on a secret campaign to "seek and destroy" the fledgling People's Party of Canada and keep its leader, Maxime Bernier, out of the national Leaders' debates. Internal Daisy Group records obtained by the Glob show a team of Daisy Group employees worked on a plan called "Project Cactus" that focused on portraying People's Party supporters as racist.

The records make several references to a "client" for the project, including sending a bill for payment, but the client's identity is not revealed in the documents. A source (unnamed by the Globe for reasons of condfidentiality) with direct knowledge of the project said the client listed in the documents is... wait for it... none other than the self-styled Conservative Party of Canada. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer declined to answer numerous questions about the dirty tricks on Saturday, saying only, "As a rule, we never make comments on vendors that we may or may not have engaged with."

Meanwhile, M Bernier told a presser yesterday that he has filed a complaint with Elections Canada. "This is the kind of dirty politics that fuels Canadians' cynicism about politics," he said. True, but a fat lot of good this is going to do him, coming as it does, just two days before the polls are set to open.

Ed. here. Walt has decided that it's imperative he be in Canada for Monday's federal election. Later today he will be setting up our Canadian Affairs Desk (CAD) in Agent 78's family room. Cable and telephone lines are being run in. TVs have been rented. Computers have been hooked up. An expedition to the LCBO has been organized. Popcorn is being made. Walt will be back on Tuesday... or maybe Wednesday... DV.

5 stages of denial (Biden model)

I saw this somewhere a couple of days ago and saved it. Now I can't remember where it came from. Hey, I'm old.

What if no-one wins the Canadian election?

Suppose a country holds an election and no-one wins. What happens then? Because of the nature of the parliamentary democracy which it inherited from Britain, Canada may, this coming Monday, become a case in point.

Public opinion polls (which Americans know are always reliable) show Justin Trudeau's Gliberals in a virtual dead heat with Andrew Scheer's Cuckservatives, each with just under 32% support. In Canada, as in the USA, having more votes than the other guy doesn't guarantee that you'll become head of state. What counts is how many seats your party wins in the 338-seat House of Commons.

If the polls are accurate [as they always are in the USA. Ed.], neither of the two main parties can hope for a majority. Today's morning line has the Liberals emerging with 4 to 8 more seats than the Tories. But suppose it's the other way `round. Will Mr Socks resign and hand the reins of power over to Mr Bland? Time for The King-Byng Thing, a lesson in Canadian history and constitutional law from Agent 3.

The man on the left was a King. The man on the right was a Lord.

Julian Hedworth George Byng came from a noble English family, and commanded the Canadian Corps of the British Army at Vimy Ridge, in World War I. The Canucks won the battle but Byng won the honours, becoming the 1st Viscount Byng of Vimy. In 1921 he was sent to Canada to become the country's Governor-General, the representative of King George V.

William Lyon Mackenzie King (not "king" as in sovereign) was Prime Minister of Canada for most of the period from 1921 to 1948. He lost his grip on power, though, in a general election in the fall of 1925. Then, as may be the case now, no party got a majority of the seats in the House of Commons. Mr King's Liberals came second, a few seats behind the Conservatives. But (and this is where the constitutional point comes in), Mr King was the incumbent Prime Minister, and as such felt he had the right to meet the House and seek its confidence.

Lord Byng thought the Conservatives should have been called on to form the government, since they had more seats, but acceded to Mr King's request on condition that if the Liberals lost the vote of confidence, Mr King would not seek a dissolution of Parliament and a new election. Sure enough, the government fell and "Mackenzie King" went back to Lord Byng to ask that the election writ be dropped. Lord Byng refused and, in 1926, called on the Conservatives to form a government. They did, and almost immediately lost the next vote of confidence. Whereupon a new election was called, which the King Liberals won.

Lord Byne was duly recalled and a new Governor-General placed on the vice-regal throne. Upon returning to power, Mr King's government sought at an imperial conference to redefine the role of the Governor-General as a personal representative of the sovereign in his Canadian council and not of the British government (the king in his British council). The change was agreed to at the Imperial Conference of 1926 and came to be official as a result of the Balfour Declaration of 1926 and Statute of Westminster 1931.

It is therefore settled that the Governor-General of Canada may not refuse a request of the Prime Minister. The last time that possibility was raised, when Prime Minister Harper sought to prorogue Parliament to avoid a vote of confidence, Mr Harpoon threatened to go directly to the Queen to get what he wanted. It wasn't necessary, as the G-G caved.

What that means for Canadians is that even if, on Monday, Just In Trudeau's Liberals elect fewer Members of Parliament than Andrew Scheer's Conservatives, M Trudeau can make a good case for remaining in office. He could meet the House and, with the support of the socialist NDP and/or the separatist Bloc Québécois, could continue his misrule until such time as enough MPs desert him.

It is true, as Mr Scheer says, that no Prime Minister has done that in modern times. The convention for the last half-century or so is that a Prime Minister whose party finishes with fewer seats than another party should resign, and that the Governor-General should then call on the leader of that other party to form the government. It doesn't matter that the other party didn't get a majority of the seats. A plurality would do. So it will be up to M Trudeau, if he loses, to the right thing. But will he? Stay tuned.

Less than 2% of illegal border cross deported from Canuckistan

Since Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Dressup, issued his famous Tweet -- "Everyone fleeing Trump's Amerika is welcome to Canada" -- in 2017, over 45,000 "asylum-seekers" have jumped across the US-Canada border, mostly at Roxham Road, near the small Québec town of Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle. In this picture, members of Canada's famous Mounted Police are shown carrying their bags and pointing them towards the nearest welfare office.

Most of the border jumpers are black. Many are Muslim. Many came from shitholes like Haiti and Nigeria to the USA on visitor visas for the express purpose of going to Canada where they would be welcomed by the Liberals, always on the lookout for new Liberal voters. M Trudeau and his minions call them "irregular border crossers", not "illegal immigrants".

At least three cabinet ministers -- The Hon. Ralph Goodale (Public Security), the Hon. Ahmed Hussen (Minister of Refugees and Immigration, and a "refugee" himself) and the Hon. Bill Blair (former Toronto police chief, now Minister of Fart-catching) -- keep assuring Canadians that there's no crisis at the border. Don't worry, they say, all of these people will be screened and vetted and "processed", and those found to be security risks or otherwise inadmissible will be deported.

That's the theory. The reality, as reported by Canadian Press today, is that only a small fraction of the bogus refugee claimants have so far been deported. Statistics obtained by CP from the Canada Border Services Agency show that as of 27 September, 843 people had been physically removed from Canada. Do the math. That's less than 2%. A further 671 people were awaiting removals after exhausting all their options to stay in the Great No-longer-white North.

1000s more are at various stages in the "process". Canada's understaffed Immigration and Refugee Board is backed up worse than someone on an all-cheese diet, and fewer than half of the asylum claims have been heard. If the IRB disallows claims, the "irregulars" have the right of appeal. So far, 85% of those who've lost their initial bids for asylum have contested the decisions before the IRB's appeal division, with the assistance of lawyers paid by Canuck taxpayers.

That means deportation proceedings for 6600 or more illegal border crossesrs have been put on hold. While the hearings and appeals drag on, the "asylum-seekers" are fed and housed, sometimes in big-city hotels, again courtesy of the generous (and stupid) Canadian taxpayer.

I say "stupid" because millions of Canadians will vote, next Monday, for politicians and parties who propose to do exactly nothing to close the Canada-US border. "Canadians welcome all newcomers, no matter how they get here. The system works. Don't listen to the racist anti-immigrant party." That's the message not just from the Trudeau Liberals, but also from Andrew Scheer's Cuckservatives, the Sikh-led NDP, and the loony left Green Party.

The only party proposing anything different is Maxime Bernier's People's Party of Canada. The PPC platform calls for an end to Liberal "all welcome" mass immigration, with the emphasis to be shifted to economic migrants who are capable of integrating into and making a positive contribution to Canadian society. That means no more (or at least fewer) "refugees".

M Bernier goes further, promising that he will close the border at Roxham Road and other weak points by building a fence. Check out the video in "Latest interview with Max Bernier: border fences, supply management and the Indian Act", WWW 26/9/19.

Dear Canadian friends, if you're tired of paying the bills for tens of 1000s of unqualified and unwelcome "refugees", tired of having your immigration system [Is dis a system? Ed.] gamed by welfare-shoppers, and you want to pull in the welcome mat, you know what to do on Monday. Vote PPC!

Guide for Canadian voters

The 2019 federal election will be held on Monday, October 21st. Polling stations will be open from 0930 to 2130, local time. If you are registered to vote, you should have received a voter identification card in the mail.

If you did not get a card, and are a Canadian citizen, you are still entitled to vote. Take two pieces of identification -- one of them, preferably, a government-issued photo ID such as a driver's licence -- to the nearest polling station to your place of residence, and they will register you, or direct you the proper station.

The Deputy Returning Officer at your polling station will give you a ballot paper, with the names and party affiliations of all the candidates in your electoral district. Here is a sample ballot.

Once you have marked your ballot, fold it up again in the same way as it was given to you. Take the ballot back to the Deputy Returning Officer, who will remove the counterfoil and then hand it back to you to be deposited in the ballot box.

This message is presented by Walt Whiteman as a service to the people of Canuckistan.

Why Matt Taibbi thinks the deep state coup vs Pres Trump is dangerous

It's been a while since we quoted Matt Taibbi here, not because of his leftish political views [Free speech for everyone! Ed.], and certainly not because he's not funny. He is a fine writer and I can't help but chuckle as I read something like Insane Clown President. The thing is that I wait for Mr Taibbi's books to appear, because I refuse to read Rolling Stone. So I was pleased to discover, today, that Mr T pens (or types) Untitledgate, a newsletter (or "serial book", as he calls it"), which will be delivered to you by e-mail... if you subscribe, of course.

Even better news is that some parts are available to cheap Charlies [like Walt! Ed.] who want to read before they shell out the spondulix. The most recent offering, headed "We're in a permanent coup", is subheaded "Americans might soon wish they just waited to vote their way out of the Trump era". Eh? Must read! Here are some excerpts.

We have long been spared this madness [change of government by coup] in America. Our head-counting ceremony was Election Day. We did it once every four years. That’s all over, in the Trump era....

The men who are the proxies for Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani...are asserting that "official channels" have been corrupted. The forces backing impeachment, meanwhile, are telling us those same defendants are obstructing a lawful impeachment inquiry.... We are speeding toward a situation when someone in one of these camps refuses to obey a major decree, arrest order, or court decision, at which point Americans will get to experience the joys of their political futures being decided by phone calls to generals and police chiefs.

My discomfort in the last few years, first with Russiagate and now with Ukrainegate and impeachment, stems from the belief that the people pushing hardest for Trump's early removal are more dangerous than Trump. Many Americans don't see this because they're not used to waking up in a country where you're not sure who the president will be by nightfall. They don’t understand that this predicament is worse than having a bad president.

The Trump presidency is the first to reveal a full-blown schism between the intelligence community and the White House. Senior figures in the CIA, NSA, FBI and other agencies made an open break from their would-be boss before Trump's inauguration, commencing a public war of leaks that has not stopped....

The agencies' new trick is inserting themselves into domestic politics using leaks and media pressure. The "intel chiefs" meeting was just the first in a series of similar stories, many following the pattern in which a document was created, passed from department from department, and leaked. [Examples are given.] ...

I don't believe most Americans have thought through what a successful campaign to oust Donald Trump would look like. Most casual news consumers can only think of it in terms of Mike Pence becoming president. The real problem would be the precedent of a de facto intelligence community veto over elections, using the lunatic spookworld brand of politics that has dominated the last three years of anti-Trump agitation.

CIA/FBI-backed impeachment could also be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If Donald Trump thinks he's going to be jailed upon leaving office, he'll sooner or later figure out that his only real move is to start acting like the "dictator" MSNBC and CNN keep insisting he is. Why give up the White House and wait to be arrested, when he still has theoretical authority to send Special Forces troops rappelling through the windows of every last Russiagate/Ukrainegate leaker? That would be the endgame in a third world country, and it's where we're headed, unless someone calls off this craziness. Welcome to the Permanent Power Struggle.
