CTF: Place the Big Mother with boxcar sized neon flashing lights and whistles under Sophie's bedroom window!

Good Day Readers:

The Trudeau's are sadly out of touch with Canadians! As millions of working, single parents have to rush to drop off their children at daycare while holding down a couple minimum wage part-time jobs to pay the bills, there's stay at home mom Sophie with no official duties singing lullabies to her privately schooled children as she sips her morning coffee

To add insult to injury she's saying she needs more taxpayers' dollars to carry out her "official duties" as First Lady! What "official duties?" Canadians can't afford the Trudeau's lavish lifestyle.

Canadian Taxpayers Federation launches 2016 national debt clock tour

  • Trudeau government's spending plans will see federal debt burden rise to $716 billion by 2020
  • Every Canadian already owes $17,300 in federal debt
  • Federal debt increases by $3.3 million every hour of every day
VICTORIA, British Columbia: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) today launched a six-week, nine-province tour of its National Debt Clock, in order to raise awareness about the rising public debt burden faced by Canadians, and calling on the federal government to return to balanced budgets as soon as possible.
“It took the Harper Conservatives six years to climb out of the deficit they plunged us into in 2009, and the result was an additional $120 billion in federal debt,” said CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick. “Now the Trudeau Liberals – who ironically ran on a platform of ‘real change’ – appear set to pile up even more debt, leaving future generations of Canadians holding the bag.”
The CTF Debt Clock is a large digital clock measuring five feet high and 12 feet long, and displays the real-time total federal debt, along with per-second and per-person figures. A customized trailer built specifically for the clock allows for a rolling display of the clock as it crosses Canada.
“The federal government is spending $3.3 million per day on interest, and the provinces are spending millions more. This is not responsible, and it is not sustainable. Governments need to learn to live within their means, and stop expecting children and grandchildren to pay their bills for them,” continued Wudrick.
The CTF will be posting regular updates on social media as the Debt Clock makes it way from Victoria to Halifax, before ending the tour in Ontario in mid-July.

Anderson Cooper makes his RidicULiST!

Good Day Readers:

So what does he do? He announces CNN will not identify by name the Orlando, Florida shooter because that's the kind of attention they crave. First, he's already dead so it matters not. Second, unless you've been resident of another planet he'd been identified a gazillion times. Try Googling anything even remotely related to the Orlando tragedy, Anderson, and tell us what you see. Seech! Jezus, for a change inform your viewers about something they don't know!

Good Day Readers:

Here's what's mega scary. If a computer system such as the presumably sophisticated University of Calgary's can be held up for ransom whose next? Because of the way bitcoins are transacted on the open market they are very difficult to track.

Hillary Clinton: "Donald Trump doesn't have the temperrment to be President of the United States!"

Bill, White House staff lived in fear of Hillary: Ex-Secret Service Officer

Hillary Clinton has a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality that left White House staffers scared stiff of her explosive — and even physical — outbursts, an ex-Secret Service officer claims in a scathing new tell-all.

Gary Byrne, who was posted outside the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was President, portrays Hillary as too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become leader of the free world, according to advance promotional materials exclusively obtained by Page Six.

The allegations from Byrne, a 29-year veteran of the military and federal law enforcement, threaten to derail her campaign days before she is expected to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination.

He describes Hillary Clinton as acting friendly one moment, then raging the next.

“What I saw in the 1990s sickened me,” he writes in the intro of the book, “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses his Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.”
The book claims she repeatedly screamed obscenities at her husband, Secret Service personnel and White House staffers — all of whom lived in terror of her next tirade.

Secret Service agents had discussions about the possibility that they would have to protect Bill from his wife’s physical attacks, Byrne writes, and the couple had one “violent encounter” the morning of a key presidential address to the nation.

Meanwhile, a paranoid Hillary Clinton tried to have the Secret Service banned from the White House and once tried to ditch her security detail, Byrne says.

“Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office,” he writes.

“From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true. And with Hillary’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style — volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else — hasn’t changed a bit.”

The book isn’t set for release until June 28, but pre-orders have sent it to No. 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list.

Byrne — who was subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury that investigated Bill Clinton’s affair with intern Monica Lewinsky — claims in the book that he interrupted the president’s sexual shenanigans in the White House.

Byrne says he walked into a room where the president was “involved inappropriately with a woman” who was neither his wife nor Lewinsky.

And he says he once threw out a White House towel stained with a woman’s lipstick — and the president’s “bodily fluids.”

Byrne describes arriving for work one day in 1995 following a loud fight between the Clintons the night before.

The dust-up, he says, left a light blue vase “smashed to bits” and Bill sporting a “real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye.”

Byrne’s book amplifies earlier allegations of mistreatment of Secret Service personnel by Hillary Clinton — including in 2014’s “First Family Detail” by former Washington Post reporter Ronald Kessler and last year’s “The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House,” which also detailed a fight between Bill and Hillary over the Lewinsky affair.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign downplayed Byrne’s book and compared him to Edward Klein, author of last year’s “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary.”

A classic oxymoron ..... politicians against corruption!

Good Day Readers:

When politicians of any stripe rail against corruption should taxpayers not cast a very wary eye? After all isn't that what politicians do best - create scandals which taxpayers then have to pay to clean up. Is this not akin to putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop or having organized crime investigate itself? Sheesh!

As London gig ends, Gordon Campbell decries global corruption

Is Canada's exiting UK High Commissioner headed back to BC?

Canada is back in the business of attending global gatherings to fight corruption. And one of the faces we showed is B.C.'s former premier Gordon Campbell.

Campbell resigned as premier after a number of scandals and facing party revolt over imposing a surprise new sales tax just after re-election. His popularity at rock bottom, Campbell landed in London as Canada's high commissioner for the U.K., appointed by Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2011.

Canada was absent from last fall's United Nations anti-corruption convention, after Harper opted to send no delegate or observer to the summit in St. Petersburg, Russia.

But when U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron hosted an anti-corruption confab on May 12, the Trudeau government sent a delegation led by Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, accompanied by his issues manager Cory Pike, senior advisor on international crime David Pimm, and Campbell.

Pimm was on the Canadian delegation at the Panama City-hosted United Nations' Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption in 2013.

What was Campbell's role at the recent London conference? "The Canadian High Commission supported the delegation through the negotiation of summit documents and the facilitation of media availability for the minister at the close of the summit," Global Affairs spokesperson Austin Jean explained via email.

"This was the first summit of its kind, bringing together world leaders, business and civil society to exchange views on the consequences of corruption and reaffirm their commitment to expose and prosecute it."

Jean shared, as well, that Campbell's tour of duty serving at the pleasure of the federal government is about to end. He is expected to return to Canada this summer.

'Corruption should be driven out'

Campbell and other participants at the one-day London summit declared that corruption should be exposed, pursued and punished, and that those who have suffered should be fully supported. "Corruption should be driven out -- wherever it may exist," said the summit's declaration.

Cameron has been under fire for the rising cost of real estate in London amid a rush of investment from Russian sources. The U.K. government has enacted new requirements for disclosure of beneficial ownership of companies buying real estate and bidding on contracts in U.K.

A three-and-a-half page statement of Canadian policies submitted to the summit outlined some of the Liberal government's efforts, such as the $444 million allocation to Canada Revenue Agency to "better tackle tax evasion and aggressive tax avoidance."

"We commit to reviewing penalties and other actions against professional enablers of tax evasion, including for corporations that fail to prevent their employees from facilitating tax evasion," said Canada's statement, which mentioned cooperation with China and the OECD Forum on Tax Administration.

It also said Canada commits to implementing the Common Reporting Standard for the automatic exchange of financial account information for tax purposes by July 2017 and working with others to establish an International Anti-Corruption Coordination Centre.

The paper mentioned three five-year programs worth almost $36 million that were established under the Conservative government, including audit, transparency and anti-corruption initiatives in Ukraine, Cameroon, Ghana, Tanzania, and Vietnam. Canada also has partnerships under the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative with Peru and Tanzania, countries where many Canadian companies are involved in mining.

Coming home?

It's not known whether Gordon Campbell, when his high commissioner tour of duty ends, will roost again in British Columbia. His 10 years as B.C. premier office were marred by the province's biggest corruption scandal surrounding the $1 billion privatization of BC Rail.

The trial of former ministerial aides Dave Basi and Bob Virk ended in a fall 2010 plea bargain. Ex-finance minister Gary Collins was about to testify, but Basi and Virk were sentenced to two years house arrest for accepting bribes from a bidder. Their $6 million legal bill was charged to taxpayers, despite government policy.

Campbell had previously promised a full explanation. When that didn't come, the B.C. NDP promised a BC Rail public inquiry if they won the 2013 election. The BC Liberals, however, were re-elected under Christy Clark.
