Escape From The Holocaust Lie

By
Arthur Topham

“The first and most important value is the freedom to debate, the freedom to think, the freedom to speak and the freedom to disagree. This prosecution, has already had a very serious effect on those freedoms. If it were to result in a conviction, I suggest to you that a process of witch-hunting would begin in our society where everyone who had a grievance against anyone else would say “Uh-huh, you are false, and I’ll take you or pressure somebody else to take you to court and force you to defend yourself.”
~ Douglas Christie, Barrister & Solicitor from his Summation to the Jury
in the Ernst Zundel Trial, February 25, 1985

I chose the above quote from Douglas Christie, the greatest defender of freedom of speech Canada has ever produced. Doug, more than any other person I know (and I knew him personally for seven years right up to the time of his death in March of 2013), epitomized the spirit of Truth, intelligence of Heart, the noble Grace and indefatigable Courage and Integrity of a free man all combined with an adamantine faith in God.

It was due in great part to the efforts of Doug Christie during the trial of Ernst Zundel that he, like the biblical Moses of old, was able to lead the captured consciousness of Truth Seekers of the 20th Century out of their mentally-induced prisons into the fertile lands of freedom of speech and expression.

Ernst Zundel had been charged under Section 177 of the Criminal Code for having knowingly “published false news that was likely to be injurious to the public good” when he began dispensing a small booklet titled Did Six Million Really Die? – one which he hadn’t written himself but felt expressed his views on the alleged Jewish Holocaust. It was Zundel’s trial that finally brought to a head the (then) forty years of Canadians wondering aimlessly through a cognitive “6 Million” wilderness of deception not knowing that all the while they were being psychically manipulated and conditioned to believe the greatest LIE ever told to humanity.

Awhile ago I typed out and digitally recorded on RadicalPress.com Doug Christie’s Summation to the Jury which first appeared in booklet form not too long after the trial ended and I highly recommend that anyone in the least concerned about this massive experiment in mind control read it. If nothing else it will vividly show you the brilliance and logic (and levity) of the lawyer who honestly earned his handle “The Battling Barrister”.

ZundelTrialFreeSpeechDC800 copy

Doug Christie put the issue of Ernst Zundel’s concerns before the jury in the following manner:

“The booklet Did Six Million Really Die? is more important for German people than it is maybe for others, because there is a real guilt daily inculcated against German people in the media every time they look at the war.

The German people have been portrayed for forty years in the role of the butchers of six million.”

In Christie’s Summation to the Jury at the culmination of the trial he recapped much of what was revealed to the court through weeks of mind-bending cross-examination, regarding this one fundamental LIE that has superseded all other interpretations of what took place during WW 2 in German occupied territories in Eastern Europe.

During the Zundel Trial Christie literally demolished the illusions of the “gas chambers” and the “6 Million Jews” myth that the Crown and its Expert Witness Raul Hilberg had attempted to foist upon the Jury and, by extension, the nation and the world as a whole. The final results showed that the much-touted, world renowned “holocaust expert” Raul Hilberg’s testimony (the Jews considered Hilberg to be their No. 1 man) ultimately proved to be nothing more than unsubstantiated bluff.

As Doug Christie put it in his summation:

“Who denies Dr. Hilberg the right to publish his views? Who denies that he should be free to say there was a Hitler order to exterminate Jews? Not my client; not me; nobody in society denies him that right. Who denies anyone the right to publish their views? Well, it’s the position of my client that he’s obliged to justify his publication. And I suggest he has….”

“Has Dr. Hilberg proved a single thing here to be false? No, he hasn’t. He says he had documents. He produces none. He talks about the train tickets and schedules. What train tickets and schedules? If we’re talking about a criminal case we should have evidence. There isn’t enough evidence here today to convict one person for murdering one other person. But they want you to believe that six million died, or millions died, and that this question mark is false. Where is the evidence to support one murder by one person? There is no Hitler order; there is an alleged order somewhere by somebody alleged to have heard it from somebody else. There’s no evidence.”

And the Beat(ing) Goes On

Now, seventy-one years later (thirty-one years after Doug’s summation) we’re still witnessing the relentless, malicious efforts of the Zionist Jews (and their sycophant zombie clones) to brow-beat, bludgeon, bedazzle and intimidate Canadians into accepting as FACT everything that the Ernst Zundel trial legally established as mere FICTION.

I am specifically referring to the current mainstream media uproar of feigned sound and fury that’s overtaken not only the local media in Jasper, Alberta The Jasper Local, and the Canadian Edmonton, Alberta media but has even extended itself to the state of Israel’s Haaretz newspaper since one of Jasper’s better known residents and peace activists, Monika Schaefer, published a short video denouncing the alleged “6 Million Jewish Holocaust”. The video in question was titled, Sorry Mom, I was wrong about the Holocaust.

MonikaSchaeferSorryMomHdr copy

No ifs ands or buts, it’s intentional mind-control on the same level as that of MKULTRA.

No ifs and or buts, it’s intentional mind-control on the same level as that of MKULTRA. Canadians, like people everywhere, have been unwittingly under the hypnotic, sorcerer’s spell of Jewish controlled “mainstream media” since the end of World War 2. They have surreptitiously endured a lifetime of brainwashing and mendaciously motivated mind control and for many today they still have little or no clue that the alleged “6 Million Jewish Holocaust” was and is the BIGGEST and most pervasive LIE ever foisted upon the world.

Of course that’s how it was intentionally designed to be when the perpetrators of this fantastic fiction first formulated, then forecast for use on such a massive scale, their serpentine “6 Million” siren song purposely meant to entrap the masses into subconsciously entering a Zionist-induced cognitive gulag or concentration camp strikingly similar to their own Talmudic Rabbi’s historically induced ghetto consciousness that forms the superstructure upon which Zionism’s atheistic ideological edifice rests.

Back in 2009 I wrote an article titled Israel’s Wall: For Palestinians or Jews? where I try to show the similitude between the wall that the Israeli government constructed on stolen Palestinian land and the mental/emotional wall that the Talmudic Rabbis built around their own tribe in order to control the minds of each successive generation of Jews and keep them trapped in the Talmudic oral “law”; an alleged law that purported made them especially chosen by God to rule over the world and because of that exclusiveness therefore separate and a step above the rest of humanity. It was a thesis first put forward by the British author and journalist Douglas Reed in his monumental classic, The Controversy of Zion.

The final point thought that needs to be restated again and again is the fact that down through history and right up until the 20th Century the most astute observers of civilized development in the West continually questioned and criticized the actions and motives of the Babylonian Talmudic tribe of Pharisees whenever they began to meddle too deeply in the affairs of other nation states but beginning with the take-over of the majority of the media in the West around the turn of the 20th century this practise began to cease and in its place there began renewed efforts on the part of the Zionist Jews to attack any and all critics of their ideology and their actions with the endless epithets of “anti-Semite” and “racist” and “Jew Hater”, an enterprise that has today reached such epidemic proportions that critics of present day Zionism lay wasting away in dungeons and website owners, university professors, researchers and writers everywhere are being accused of “hate crimes” throughout most, if not all, western nations.

Monika Schaefer’s case is the latest in that long and disgusting list of Truth Revealers who Jewish lobby organizations like B’nai Brith Canada and the new viper on the holohoax block The Centre for Israel & Jewish Affairs (CIJA) along with all their trance-induced toady followers are attempting to smear and degrade and destroy in order to keep the BIG LIE from being questioned.

What to do?

The longer this travesty of injustice goes on the more insanely vile and blood-thirsty the Zionists are becoming. Their desperation has grown almost exponentially over the past decade as they wend their way through the corridors of Canada’s justice system plying their rag-tag “hate crime” laws in order to safeguard the collusion they’ve made with the Devil.

No better example of just how demented it’s becoming was the latest attack upon Monika Schaefer that occurred but a day or so ago in Jasper. When Monika Schaefer moved to Jasper, Alberta busking (i.e. the playing of an instrument on the public streets) was illegal. Bearing that in mind, in communication with Monika over this matter  she told me the following:

“The irony of the fact is that it was me who brought the issue of busking to town council already a few years ago, made a presentation (at least on one occasion, and have raised it a few times since…) to support busking in town. You see, it has always been illegal to busk in Jasper. Yes, you read correctly Arthur. Anyway, so you see the irony – I have been pushing for busking for a long time. This summer is the first time it is legal. So when I went yesterday to get my busking license, my senses already went up. Dave wasn’t there, but the woman who was there (whom I have also known for decades – it’s a small town) was behaving very cagy. Then I left a phone message, text message, and email message with the person who was supposedly in charge (someone else, not even Dave). Today my gut feeling of yesterday was proven correct when I received Dave’s message.”

And here’s the rub for those who haven’t read the article. Dave’s message read: “We have considered your application for a busking permit in Jasper. In light of your recently publicly proclaimed non-inclusive beliefs we have decided to decline a permit to you at this time.”

“publicly proclaimed non-inclusive beliefs” !!!???

As one commenter on RadicalPress. com wrote in reply to the article, Surely you guys are making this up! because no one can possibly be dumb enough to actually write and publish that sentence – NOT, in Canada, no f’n way!”

Unfortunately for Canada someone in an official position with the municipal government of Jasper, Alberta DID write that sentence and sent it to Monika Schaefer.

Since my own arrest, incarceration and criminal case began back in May of 2012 after I was charged with “communicating statements” that did “willfully promote hatred against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code” I’ve been doing my damnedest to warn Canadians of the extreme danger of these so-called “Hate Propaganda” laws that the Zionist Jew lobbyists created and are using with increasing fervour and zeal to censor any and all criticism of their deeds both here at home and abroad in the state of Israel. And of course the kicker is the fact that they used the “6 Million” holocaust lie in order to justify the inclusion of these Orwellian anti-free speech laws into Canadian jurisprudence.

Given the current Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau’s, longstanding indoctrination on the holocaust deception and his unabashed public display of obeisance to the perpetrators of this hoax there’s little chance that we will see him do what Conservative PM Stephen Harper did with the equally nefarious Sec. 13(1) legislation formerly contained in the Canadian Human Rights Act; that is, repeal the law. But that is the only and final solution to this “hate speech” madness that’s slithered like a snake from out of that den of vipers known as the Canadian “Jewish Lobby”.

RepealHateLaws-1000 copy 2

The issue must be taken from Cybespace’s Facebook and the Alternative media and transposed down onto the streets and turned into a public spectacle that the mainstream media cannot refuse to cover. Instead of focussing their attention on Gay Pride festivities it’s time that the Jewish-controlled media was forced to recognize that the fundamental rights of ALL Canadians are being jeopardized by these draconian “hate speech” laws and the only way this is going to happen is if normal, law-abiding citizens of Canada get their act together and begin to openly PROTEST this blatant act of sedition by these foreign lobbyists against Canadians’ lawful right to freedom of expression both on and off the Internet.

The time to organize this is NOW. Their game plan is so in our face obvious and the people know it. All that remains is for concerned Canadians to stand up, take to the streets and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

If we want our basic freedoms we’re going to have to fight to hang on to them one way or another.

Hate speech complaint filed against Jasper woman for Holocaust denial video
Green Party condemns former candidate’s ‘terribly misguided’ statements

On her Facebook page, Monika Schaefer lists herself as a self-employed violin instructor.

In the first five seconds of her video titled “Sorry Mom, I was wrong about the Holocaust,” the former Green party candidate is shown deftly playing the violin.

However, it’s not her violin playing but what she says in the video that is garnering all of the attention.

‘This is the biggest and most pernicious and persistent lie in all of history.’ – Monika Schaefer

Less than three minutes into the video Schaefer, who was born in Canada of German heritage, tells a story of how as a child she was taught to believe the Holocaust happened.

She goes on to say she confronted her parents about why they didn’t do anything to stop the Holocaust. They replied they didn’t know it was happening. Schaefer says her parents didn’t know about the genocide because “these things did not happen.”

Later in the video she says that since 2014 she started to realize the Holocaust “is the biggest and most pernicious and persistent lie in all of history.”

Throughout the video she expresses her firm belief that six million Jews did not die at the hands of Nazi Germany and refers to the Holocaust as “the six-million lie.”

Human rights complaint
Reaction to her video has been wide ranging.

In the comments section under her YouTube posting, there are supporters — some even applauding her for “speaking the truth.” But just as many are condemning the Jasper music teacher’s comments.

Ken Kuzminski is one of them.

‘It is a hate crime in my mind and I believe it should be investigated as such.’ – Ken Kuzminski

Kuzminski used to be friends with Schaefer but says that all changed after he saw her video.  He says many people have approached him in the town of Jasper in disbelief over what Schaefer has said.

“It is a hate crime in my mind and I believe it should be investigated as such,” said Kuzminski, who is also the president of the local Legion in Jasper.

He says Schaefer is no longer welcomed at the legion.

Kuzminski filed a complaint with the Alberta and Canadian Human Rights Commission, citing Schaefer’s denial of the Holocaust as hate speech.

“By allowing it to be unchallenged like this gives licence to the people that want to spread hatred, and ignorance even further, and you see that on the comments of her YouTube videos, the hatred that’s being expressed there,” said Kuzminski.

The Edmonton Jewish Federation wasn’t aware of Schaefer’s YouTube video or its contents.

After watching it, Tal Toubiana, the director of community relations and communications for the federation, was hesitant to give Schaefer any further attention.

“Any media coverage inadvertently gives her a larger audience and platform,” he said.

Despite that, Toubiana added: “I find it curious that a woman who allegedly faced bullying based on her country of origin would rather continue a cycle of irreflexive hate than reflect deeply on the wounded history and trauma the Holocaust did create.

‘The Holocaust is a historical event that is not only undeniable in regards to the facts and documentation of its existence, but in the collective trauma it created.’ – Tal Toubiana

“The Holocaust is a historical event that is not only undeniable in regards to the facts and documentation of its existence, but in the collective trauma it created. Ms. Schaefer is a product of the very trauma she claims does not exist.

“Genocide sadly has not stopped at the Holocaust and lives continue to be lost all over the world. Perhaps we should shift our conversation away from those who choose to put on blinders rather than face pain, and discuss how we can combat hate and indifference in our world.”

Green party condemns former candidate

The Green Party condemned Schaefer’s comments in a strongly worded statement released Friday.

“I am shocked by comments made by Ms. Schaefer and I condemn her terribly misguided and untrue statements,” said Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada. “Ms. Schaefer does not represent the values of the Green Party nor of our membership.”

The party said Schaefer was rejected as a potential Green candidate for the riding of Yellowhead before the 2015 federal election, and was also rejected as a potential candidate for the 2014 by-election in Fort McMurray-Athabasca.

“In light of Ms. Schaefer’s untrue statements made in a recent online video, we will be initiating the process to terminate her membership with the Green Party of Canada at the earliest possible opportunity,” said Emily McMillan, Green party executive director.

Even though there has been backlash, Schaefer is standing firm on her position made in the June 17 video, which now has well over 30,000 views.

She says for the last two years she has spent “a great deal of time researching this topic.” What is being taught to Canadians about the Holocaust is full of “inaccuracies,” she claims.
“When I started to look at the evidence, and I researched, and I researched and I researched, and the lies are coming apart, this house of cards is crumbling, and that is why there is this very fierce reaction against what I’m saying, because this lie, this public myth, has shaped our world.”

Nazi Death Camp Believer & Editor/Publisher of The Jasper Local finds Monika Schaefer’s Holohoax video “repulsive”

by Bob Covey

From the July 1, 2016 edition

Jasper is trending!

First, the original Science Guy, Bill Nye, was announced as the marquee presenter at this year’s Dark Sky Festival; next The Amazing Race put the entire Athabasca Valley into two million Canadian living rooms; and then Trekkie golden boy, George Takei, was announced as another Dark Sky darling for October. Hashtag MyJasper!

Are we missing anything? Oh right, a local musician’s YouTube video garnered more than 25,000 views and received 500 comments in less than a week for denying the holocaust.

MonikaSorryHDR

Wait, what?

Monika Schaefer has used these pages to express alternative points of view in the past, but recently she left Jasperites’ jaws agape after she starred in a video which not only asked people to consider an alternate history of World War II but suggested that the Nazi death camps were no such thing and that six million Jews were not in fact murdered.

As you can imagine, the backlash on local social media channels has been severe. As you might not be able to imagine, the comments below the video are largely in support of her “speaking up.” It is a frightening glimpse into a community imbued with anti-Semitism and hate.

The Jasper Local struggled with how to deal with this “issue.” We certainly wouldn’t have touched it had it not been on the lips of everyone in town. The spike of interest wasn’t for the ideas, of course, but rather the shocking way in which they were broadcast. Why would someone record such a thing? How could one not consider the hurt they would cause wartime survivors and their relations? Why would one want to subject one’s self to the public scorn which will so clearly stem from such a project?

We posed these questions to the YouTuber herself, and Schaefer’s response was quizzical. She said her whole life she’s spoken for justice and since she’s discovered the “truth,” this was no different. The only difference, she said, is the reaction from the people she shares the community with. She’s scared she’s in physical danger.

“My life has changed forever,” she said from the train station in Toronto. “I dread arriving home.”

Many Jasperites, including those of us at this newspaper, consider the views expressed in Schaefer’s video repulsive. But as strong as that feeling is, we feel even stronger that people should have a right to express their opinions, no matter how strange, sick or sad.

On Canada Day, we’re encouraged to celebrate diversity. Divergent view points, particularly those which make us uncomfortable, will challenge our ability to do that.

However, let’s remember that we don’t need to embrace the views themselves to be grateful for Canadians’ right to express them.

Like the anthem says: the true north is strong. More importantly, however, it’s free.

Alberta Al: NDP Premier Rachel Notley appoints outsiders to top government advisory positions By Al Romanchuk

Alberta Al: NDP Premier Rachel Notley appoints outsiders to top government advisory positions

By

Al Romanchuk

 

[Editor’s Note: This Father’s Day/Summer Solstice rant by Al is in response to an article by Ezra Levant called “Meet Alberta’s new colonial chiefs”.]

I’m really not surprised at appointments; what I am not in favour of is the appointment of outsiders to do an inside job! As I’ve said we have 4.2 million people here in Alberta to choose from. Shit, she could have chosen ME to be an adviser to any GD [“God Damned” Ed.] Minister at $3,000/mo. working 8 hours per day 5 days a week. The government would, of course, have to pay the taxes on these motley earnings. Who better to be an adviser who KNOWS virtually everything about my province and the federal scene.

And let’s be clear on one thing: EVERY GD PARTY HAS SOCIALIST ASPECTS TO IT! The GD PCs and Liberals, like the NDs in Ontario, can’t wait to dole out our tax dollars UNCONDITIONALLY to the auto industry, the banking establishment and farm machinery manufacturers to name just a few. And remember these freebies have been going on for decades without abatement. Our PCs here in Alberta were quite adept at doling out BILLIONS to the oil and gas industry and the forestry business. It has poured in multi millions for carbon sequestration. Can you imagine that! The companies bring it up from the ground and then waste our GD tax dollars by having them pump it down again! Talk about idiocy!

The federal election is looming. What choices do we right-thinking Canadians have between all these socialist parties? We’ve all voted for one or the other over the years without any meaningful, tangible results because they are more concerned about donating to the have not nations instead of looking after us first. All of their GD minds are discombobulated!

We need a wholesale reformation of our political/electoral system and I have been preaching about this for decades. We can no longer support corruption, unaccountability legislation by special edicts of the PM. We need to scrap the political party system and allow the people to vote for INDEPENDENT candidates, someone who is a free thinker instead of one who tows the party line. First past the post must be abolished. Subsidies to political parties/candidates must be eliminated. We need RECALL, CITIZEN INITIATIVE AND REFERENDA legislation. We need to strengthen our laws to provide for more severe punishments to politicians who deliberately, wantonly and negligently break our laws. We need to weed them out of our houses in which they are supposed to serve. We don’t need a useless, wasteful, corrupt Senate – it should be abolished forthwith if not sooner and I am unanimous in this. We need reps in our Houses who truly represent the wishes of the people of Canada, if we can get our shit together. We don’t need outside forces like Zionist Israel dictating what we should be doing. We don’t need Obomber and his successors telling us to invade countries because the US administration falsely believes that they pose a threat to our democratic institutions. But having said all this, and repeated myself a hundred times, I know that NOTHING will change because the status quo leeches in Ontario and Quebec hold the balance of power over us. We will continue to elect people who are so GD dense they don’t know whether they’re coming or going. But one thing is certain: THEY SURE AS HELL KNOW HOW TO BE FED FROM THE TAXPAYERS TROUGH!

We have allowed ourselves to be governed, moulded, socially engineered – call it what you will – by the evil human forces who have managed to change our Criminal Code into “hate laws”. When will we learn that our own people are striking at the very heart of our freedoms – freedom of speech and freedom of the press – by making it a GD offence to “offend” someone because of what we write? When are we going to learn that the establishment of HUMAN RIGHTS tribunals across our land stultifies our freedoms? When are we going to learn that outside intervention by evil, sinister, cancerous human forces are at work hell-bent on destroying our traditions, our values and our laws? I will quote the former PM of Israel who, on October 3, 2001, told the Knesset:

“Every time we do something you tell me America (read Canada also) will do this and will do that… I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about the American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”

The death of democracy, certainly as I know it in Canada, is best summarized and very succinctly I might add by Robert Maynard Hutchins when he wrote:

“The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference and undernourishment.”

Now that I’ve concluded my rant, which unleashes some steam from my inner boiler, I want to wish all you fathers out there who are lucky enough to be able to communicate with your children and grandchildren a very happy Father’s Day.

Embracing Truth: Elizabeth May, Green Party of Canada, 9/11 and the Politics of Denial
An Open Letter to MP Elizabeth May from former Green Party candidate Monika Schaefer

Preface
by Arthur Topham

ATSmlEdScreenshot

There is a clear and present psychological disconnect between the world-wide Zionist Jew controlled media – often referred to as the “corporate/mainstream media or simply the msm” – and the world of truth, reality and common sense, which, thanks to the birth of the internet, has not been fully obliterated by the overpowering presence and influence of the controlled Zionist press.

Nowhere is this deliberate disconnect more clearly emphasized and exemplified than in the December 4, 2015 CTV news story titled “Elizabeth May presents ‘9/11 truther’ petition to Parliament” by CTVNews.ca’s Jesse Tahirali wherein the writer kick-starts their thinly veiled diatribe against Canada’s solitary Green Party member of parliament and the petitioners themselves with the following lead sentence, “Green Party Leader Elizabeth May put forward a bizarre petition in the House of Commons Wednesday asking the government to support a popular 9/11 conspiracy theory.”

MayCTVPic

While seemingly an innocuous opening statement the truth of the matter is that Tahirail immediately attacks the petition as being “bizarre”, i.e. eccentric, fantastic, grotesque, half barbaric, etc. and then automatically lumps it into the commonly coded Zionist phraseology of being nothing but a “conspiracy theory”.

In other words, according to CTVNews, the issue isn’t about the growing awareness and knowledge of thousands, if not millions, of people worldwide, who, given the irrefutable evidence of cover up which has now, metaphorically speaking, grown to the height of the former Twin Towers and points to massive deception on the part of the American government’s National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission, first established by President George W. Bush back in 2002 but merely the fact that a member of Canada’s parliament actually displayed the audacity to present a petition on behalf of these great unwashed 9/11 apostates who are asking the Canadian government to conduct a parliamentary review into the events that occurred in the United States on September 11, 2001.

May, who likely spent many a night ‘sleepless in Ottawa’ tossing and turning on her pillow thinking about the petition and the repercussions of presenting it to parliament, is to be lauded for eventually garnering the fortitude necessary to have made the right decision on behalf of concerned Canadians, truth and the democratic process itself. It set a precedent, not only in Canada but around the globe, and also brought into vivid focus the indisputable realization that the mainstream media is not a medium for dispensing neutral, impartial facts and news but rather the most insidious, dangerous, and indispensable device in the arsenal of Zion’s mind-control weaponry; one crucial to projecting and protecting the lies and illusions that the globalist Zionist cartel depends upon to support its infrastructure of terror.

The rub, of course, in all of this (and the legal loophole too) was the fact that May, while doing her democratic duty to the electorate, also made the decision to distance herself and the Green Party of Canada from any formal endorsement of the petition itself; an act which has precipitated even further controversy and concern amongst those who believe that the Green Party of Canada should have, on principle, taken the position of the petitioners and the overwhelming evidence supporting the charge of a 9/11 deception and stood up for the truth regardless of whatever flak the Zionist media undoubtedly would have responded with.

The essence of dissatisfaction with May’s decision is best presented in the following Open Letter to MP Elizabeth May from Monika Shaefer, a friend of May and a former Green Party candidate in the riding of Yellowhead, Alberta who was a veteran of several federal elections in a row. As explained to me in our correspondence, for the next election Monika was planning to run on a 9/11 truth platform. When she informed Elizabeth May of her plans she was told that would be fine, as long as she also talked about Green Party policies.

MonikaScreenShot

In the interim period an event transpired that seriously affected Monika Schaefer’s future plans. That event was the revelation in the msm that the then President of the Green Party of Canada, Paul Estrin, was a closet Zionist making public statements on Facebook and on the official Green Party website in support of the genocidal actions of the state of Israel during their 2014 summer bombing and terrorist siege of Gaza, Palestine. Interested readers can review that issue here where I covered the story back on July 30th.

MayEstrinPic

Like many Greens Monika Schaefer was extremely unsettled and disturbed by this sudden turn of events and in a letter to May dated August 5th, 2014, expressed her concerns about the Estrin affair. Below are some quotes from her letter:

“The Paul Estrin story is an issue which surely has caused you to lose sleep. It is indeed very heavy. I hope that by sharing my thoughts and insights with you, I can help to bring clarity to what must be done.
 
“It is abundantly clear to me from Paul Estrin’s controversial article entitled “Why Gaza Makes Me Sad”, that he is a Zionist shill, and will destroy the Green Party of Canada from within. It is of critical importance that he be expelled from his position of Party President immediately. 

“. . . Paul Estrin’s silence on Israel at the Green Party Convention, followed by the publication of his article on the Green Party website, is not just a coincidence or an innocent oversight on his part. He has one goal – eviscerate and thereby destroy the Green Party of Canada. 

“. . . The Zionists are in their end-game now and they are playing the stakes high. We see this by their current behaviour in Gaza, and we have seen it in the form of various false-flag terror operations over the years. These were meant to bring about the New World Order by means of the fraudulent War on Terror and by means of implementation of a police-state domestically. False-flag operations, the biggest one being 911, are carried out with the express purpose of accelerating their all-or-nothing end-game.

“They have taken control of most of our major institutions, including the media, the banks, and the government. They control the secret societies, which do not receive much attention (of course not – they are secret!), but whose influence penetrate deeply into our society. It is clear that they control all the major political parties, not just the one in power, but also the larger opposition parties. Now they are going for the Green Party as well. 

“While it is true that Paul Estrin was elected Party President by the membership, there was never disclosure about who Paul Estrin really is. I may even have voted for him myself – I don’t remember now. Even you, Elizabeth, were (by your own admission) unaware of what he really stands for. 

“He was groomed to rise to an influential position. Then when the time was right, mere days after the GPC convention, and during the current Israeli war against the Palestinians, he let loose with his diatribe, filled with lies and hate, on behalf of a supremacist cult….

“It is time to free ourselves of the shackles of Zionism. In the teachings of the Talmud, we the goyim are lower than cattle, and we are quickly becoming enslaved. In Canada we have been particularly susceptible to being brainwashed and controlled by this powerful force, precisely because we have grown up in such an open society, in which we were taught about good democratic ideals and peace and justice, and that we in Canada embodied all those wonderful values. Who would have thought that such a dark force could be in our midst. 

“No one need feel embarrassed for not understanding what has happened. The perpetrators have pulled out all the stops for maintaining mass deception. It took until 10 years post-911 before I really began to understand, and that was only because a close relative steered me in the direction of truth – for that I am grateful.

“Thank you so much for reading, listening, and hearing. I am confident you will do the right thing, and show Paul Estrin the exit door.

“your friend always,

Monika

 
As Monika later relates, “Lo-and-behold a by-election was called in my riding of Yellowhead, Alberta in October of 2014 but because of the letter regarding Paul Estrin I was rejected by the GPC as a candidate. Elizabeth May told me I could apologize to Paul for the letter, thereby making it “go away”. I refused, because that would have been the beginning of the road to compromise on truth.”

With this preface completed I now present Monika Schaefer’s recent letter to Elizabeth May regarding the 9/11 petition which she tabled in the Canadian parliament but publicly distanced herself and her party from. The Subject line of Schaefer’s letter was titled, “Embracing Truth”.

Dear Elizabeth, 

First I would like to thank you again for making the principled decision to table the ReThink911 petition on behalf of the many citizens who are clamouring for truth and clarity in unraveling the staggering events of September 11th, 2001.

I am writing now with my fervent plea for you to embrace 9/11 truth and not distance yourself from it, for the good of the planet and for the triumph of light over darkness. This is not a trivial single-stakeholder issue concerning a remote event.  9/11 is the Achilles heel of the hidden power that is steering this world into perpetual war, the so-called “war on terror”.  A grand deception has taken place and all of our institutions are participating in this deception, including the mainstream media (MSM) and our government. This includes every single Member of Parliament, as they have all been silenced on this matter.

All of our MPs have been rendered impotent while the perpetrators of the crime of 9/11 continue their game. And it would not matter how many Green Party MPs would be elected, 1 or 12 or 50 or 250, those MPs would still not have any significant effect while the “hidden government” rules. That hidden power is what will silence you and all the others on what is really going on.

You will gain the support of many citizens in publicly denouncing the official version of 9/11. It is the MSM that will attack you. Please understand that the same cabal that brought us 9/11 own and control the MSM. In the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” they call the press the Great Power.

In the 16th century, it was heretical to proclaim that the earth was round. Giordano Bruno was executed for saying this but today he is regarded a hero. His execution did not make the earth flat. Today it is heretical to question the official conspiracy story of 9/11. As with the flat earth theory, it does not make the prevailing story true.

The most important question to ask after a crime is “cui bono?”. Certainly the Muslims worldwide did not benefit from 9/11. One also needs to ask why and by whom you were attacked for tabling the petition. If their version was true, they could and would simply prove it.  A petition asking for clarification of inconsistencies would be no big deal. Most petitions do not make the news. The fact that you were attacked for tabling this particular petition raises another red flag that there is something to hide. I think you understand this.

The non-investigation of what actually happened on 9/11 was deliberate, and constituted a crime in and of itself. Many obvious mistakes were made however, and it behoves us to open our eyes. For example several MSM outlets reported WTC7 to have fallen 20 minutes before it actually fell. Someone got the timing of the script terribly wrong. There is also the case of the 5 dancing Israelis, who later reported on Israeli television that they had been in New York “to document the event”. This requires foreknowledge. Yet the criminals belligerently perpetuate the lies.

Elizabeth, as long as we the people cower in silence, as long as we fear the retributions of speaking the truth about 9/11, they will maintain their power. Nothing any of us do for other causes, be it climate change or poverty, will make much difference, because we are not in control of our affairs. We have become enslaved to the hidden power, the perpetrators of the crime.

There will come a tipping point for the truth to prevail. Perhaps it will take someone of your fame and stature to tell the world that the official story of 9/11 is nothing but a pack of lies. I implore you to consider your legacy Elizabeth. Please do not come down on the wrong side of history. History will judge us by which road we traveled when we were faced with the truth about 9/11. You are extremely intelligent, and yet you say publicly you do not agree with the petition. It makes no sense, other than for political expediency. You have told me your goal is to have 12 Green MPs thereby gaining the balance of power in a possible minority government after the next election. If you need to compromise on this truth to achieve that goal, then of what use will those 12 MPs really be? They will all have to toe the line of what the hidden power dictates.  And dictate they will. They already dictate a false narrative about the false flag terror attack of 9/11. This is the premise for the wars abroad and the erosion of our democracy at home. The false flag events continue and the MSM carry on deceiving us.

You have always said you speak truth to power. This is when it really counts. How we handle 9/11 truth is a powerful litmus test to demonstrate that the Green Party is not just one of the “grey” parties (as we like to call the rest of the parties). Embrace the petition for 9/11 truth, and the Greens truly are different than the Greys.

We urgently need to expose the fraud and bring sanity and peace to a deeply troubled world. This is about preventing WW III. This is about regaining control over our own destiny, and yes, that includes the ability to address the environmental issues which threaten our very future. Let 2015 be the year of light, not darkness.

With deep respect and humility,

Monika Schaefer
Jasper, Alberta

Why Justin Trudeau May Be More Dangerous than Harper

Justin Trudeau just may be Canada’s most dangerous man.

He of the throngs of adoring supporters, the pretty new face that promises to resurrect “Canada’s party”.

The key positions he’s taken thus far – supporting the sellout of our strategic energy resources to the Chinese Government, giving away our sovereignty through the Canada-China Trade deal, new pipelines to expand the Tar Sands – hardly vary from those of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. They just look and sound far more attractive coming from Canada’s prodigal son.

And that’s what scares me.

keystone.pipeline.route_ copy

Trudeau’s latest decision to out-Harper Mr. Harper on boosting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline to Texas give us a sobering sense of where the young Liberal leader is headed. Perhaps more troubling is the question of what he actually believes – or whether these positions derive from polling data, focus groups, and a cynical drive to get elected at all costs (more on that in a moment).

In his first swing out west following a successful leadership bid, Trudeau took the time to praise Alberta Premier Alison Redford’s efforts to secure access for Keystone by talking up improved “environmental sustainability” in the Tar Sands (exactly how, we’re left to wonder, beyond a carbon tax proposed by Redford).

“I’m very hopeful despite the political games being played by the NDP…that we will see the Keystone pipeline approved soon,” Trudeau proclaimed.

If Bay Street and the energy sector see that Trudeau is prepared to fulfill the same key objectives as Harper, they will not think twice about swinging their support back to the Liberals. This latest statement on Keystone signals that Mr. Trudeau is truly open for business. For this reason, while backing Keystone may be unpopular with certain segments of the Canadian public, it could prove a shrewd political move in the long-run.

KeystonePipeline2

Harper is uncharacteristically weak at the moment. There is the infighting within his usually locked-down caucus, the cratering polling figures (a recent Nanos poll has the Liberals leading the Conservatives for the first time in years, at 34 to 31% support), and an authoritarian image that is becoming increasingly problematic. He and his embattled foot soldiers, the likes of Joe Oliver and Jason Kenney, have had a very bad month.

Oliver overplayed his hand a couple of weeks ago when he attacked the world’s most respected climate scientist, the recently retired James Hansen of NASA, while on a “diplomatic” mission to Washington to build support for Keystone.

The tone-deaf Oliver ranted that Hansen should be “ashamed” of “exaggerating” the effects of climate change and impacts of the Tar Sands, apparently missing the irony of attacking his hosts while trying win them over. The comments, which backfired severely, were picked up by everyone from the New York Times to the UK’s Guardian. Hansen shot back, aptly branding Oliver a “Neanderthal“.

OOS

On this score, Trudeau seems to understand something his Conservative opponents don’t – i.e. cultivating buy-in for Keystone requires more sophisticated framing and at least a modicum of tact with our southern neighbours.

Meanwhile, the most likeable and politically adept figure in the Harper Government, Immigration Minister Kenney, finds himself embroiled in the growing scandal over his government’s foreign temporary worker program. The seriousness of this political pitfall is evident in the unusual backtracking Harper is doing on the program.

He’s right to do so. The problem for Harper with issues like this one, the buyout of Canadian energy company Nexen by Chinese state-owned CNOOC, and the botched fighter jet program, is the way they rile his base. Unpopular with small “c” conservatives, they drive division within Harper’s tenuous right-wing alliance.

With these troubles brewing on the home front and attack ads aimed at Trudeau falling short of the effect they had on his predecessors – Michael Ignatieff and Sétphane Dion – things are shaping up nicely for Harper’s young challenger.

The question is, what does this mean for Canada?

If all Mr. Trudeau represents is a better-packaged version of Harper’s economic vision, then how will the Canadian public and environment – not to mention the planet – be any better off?

tarsands-beforeafter

The thing that has always bothered me about Justin – ever since his entry onto the public scene at his famous father’s funeral – is that he’s never appeared to stand for anything real. Years later, even following a lengthy leadership race and literally thousands of media clips and public appearances, I still don’t know what core principles motivate his drive to lead the country. He speaks in platitudes, clever but meaningless tweets – which is partly what makes him so effective with social media and our soundbite-obsessed mainstream press.

He is our version of Robert Redford’s character in The Candidate.

Evidently, if Justin stands for anything, it’s selling out Canada’s strategic resources and exploiting the climate-destroying Tar Sands. Where his father tried and failed to build a made-in-Canada energy policy, the younger Trudeau is going in the opposite direction.

A 8189

Even that, though, I suspect, is more a reflection of his willingness to shape-shift his policies into whatever form advisers tell him will track best politically.

With Harper, by contrast, we have a sense that his zeal for expanding Canada’s fossil fuel industries through foreign ownership is something in which he believes on a deep, ideological level. I’m not sure which is better – the guy who believes in something I and many other Canadians patently don’t, or the guy who probably doesn’t but is willing to say he does, just to get elected. If these are our two choices, then I’m ready for a third.

Real leadership means fighting for real principles, even when they’re unpopular. Great politicians find a way to sell good ideas to the public and media.

Justin Trudeau does none of these things. But, boy, does he look good not doing them.

Hydraulic Fracturing [“Fracking”] Worldwide by Robin Mathews

Hydraulic Fracturing [“Fracking”] Worldwide.
Jessica Ernst of Rosebud, Alberta. Encana Corporation. Market Manipulation. Derivative Bubbles and The Fracking Wars.

By Robin Mathews

April 26, 2013

They merge.  They interpenetrate. The thread of one weaves into the fabric of the others. “Fracking” operations rush past law, past regulation, past health and environmental concerns. Supporters of ‘quick cash’, gas ‘futures’ pass corporate-written law to silence land-owners, elected councils, voters … you and me.

Narrowly – “fracking” legislation and regulatory behaviour push aside, silence anyone questioning a dangerous procedure. Broadly – they strip away the Rule of Law, disenfranchise populations, ‘despotize’ governments.

In Alberta, Stephen Harper, Alison Redford, Encana Corporation, the newly appointed Alberta Regulator Gerard Protti (enforcing newly written law), and – so far – The Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench Chief Justice Neil Wittmann all merge … interpenetrate to hold off remedial action – to create toxic law, toxic wealth, toxic environment.

People waken worldwide and begin to battle corporations, “regulators”, police forces, legislatures, courts – the dominators determined to engage in “unconventional drilling” (hydraulic fracturing, ‘fracking’). Conflict on the subject continues.  France (2011) Bulgaria (2012), and Tunisia have banned hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’). It continues in Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, the U.S.A., and more.

Hydraulic Fracturing is the intensive assault on shale, and coal beds, through multiple well bores (often invading water tables) to release marketable gas.  “Fracking” uses giant amounts of sand, water, toxic chemical-mixes near the surface or miles down to fracture strata – ‘fracking’ – for marketable gas.

FrackinWomen

Said to be ‘old hat’ (sixty years old), present hydraulic fracturing to release marketable natural gas has new aspects and possesses multiple knowns and unknowns. Hyper-industrialization of agrarian sites: outcomes unknown. Increased earthquake activity: recorded. Unforeseen “leak gas” explosions: recorded. Increased cancer incidence close to oil and gas wells: measured.  Ground water sources polluted: common, but extent and health effects unknown. Water Tables lowered: unpredictable but occurring. “Migration”/leaks of gases over time: unpredictable but certain and increasingly frequent. Toxic effects on water, soil, animal life, human health: certain, unregulated, largely unresearched, information repressed.

FarmerLady

The commonly named ‘radioactive threat’ is only now starting to be researched.  A. Rich, E.C. Crosby, University of Texas  [New Solutions, Vol. 23 (1), 117-135, 2013] reveal (in layman’s language) that a cocktail of radioactive agents are set free especially by ‘unconventional’ (‘fracking’) gas operations. Radioactive agents are found in depositories [sludge storage, waste pits, storage pools] – AND in the land no longer used for those purposes.

“Out of Control: Nova Scotia’s Experience with Fracking for Shale Gas”, Report Summary, April 2013” reports that from the few test wells undertaken radioactive materials were found to be present “only several years after drilling and disposal of some of the waste….” (p. 4)

Jessica Ernst (Rosebud, Alberta) reports that sludge from fracking operations is spread on agricultural lands in Alberta.

JessicaErnstRosebud

In Alberta, (using Joyce Nelson’s words) “the government has introduced draconian legislation (Bill 2) that would strip landowners and others of their right to object to any energy project that would adversely and directly affect them.” (Watershed Sentinel, Jan-Feb, 2013)  The determined action envisioned in Bill 2 is doubtless a response to Jessica Ernst’s $33 million lawsuit against Encana Corporation and Alberta’s regulator. And so – one may conclude – is the switching of judges on her case.  And so is, one may conclude, (what I would call) the concerted delay engaged in by Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, Neil Wittmann.  He is the highly dubious present judge on the Jessica Ernst case.

Something is seriously wrong in Canada. And globally. Evidence is mounting of real, multiple dangers in hydraulic fracturing. Legislatures should be restraining, researching, proving, regulating … preventing … at high speed. But legislatures, joining with corporations, courts, security forces are – often – deregulating, erasing evidence, punishing protesters, repressing criticism.

The whole operation world-wide is so dangerous, so untested, so irresponsible, so despotic, that reasons have to be available for largely unresearched, unregulated hydraulic fracturing in the face of its perils.

And reasons are available.

First. Think of Wiebo Ludwig (1941-2012) of Trickle Creek farm, Peace River, Alberta, fighting “Sour Gas” fracking.  Sour gas “a potent neurotoxin, has left a legacy of death and destruction….” (Andrew Nikiforuk). Think of the attacks on Sour Gas operations around Trickle Creek. Think of the millions of dollars spent to investigate the attacks on Sour Gas fracking around Trickle Creek.

 
SourGaspic600 3

Think of the threats and attacks in B.C. near Chetwyn against Encana Corporation operations and the millions of dollars spent to investigate.

Think of the RCMP/Encana Corporation, alleged to have created a “false flag” and blowing up an Encana well site to spur on distress – no charges laid. Then think of the millions of dollars spent to investigate, charge, jail, and reinvestigate Wiebo Ludwig. One example of many: “RCMP conducted a four-day [fruitless] search of Trickle Creek (2010) involving over a hundred RCMP officers.” (Wikipedia)

Think of Wiebo Ludwig (but do not speak of him).  Think of him driven to desperation by Sour Gas fracking. (But do not speak of him.) Think of his repeated (unanswered) pleas to Alberta government for regulation, for research, inquiry, and investigation of hydraulic fracturing. (But do not speak of him – or risk being accused of sympathizing with lawlessness, terrorist activity.)

Who will speak of the terrorism of Alison Redford, Stephen Harper, Encana Corporation, Gerard Protti and the Alberta Regulators, legislators of Alberta, and – so far – of Neil Wittmann, Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench in openly, or tacitly, or passively accepting and/or furthering what many believe is a ruthless attack on the health, the well-being, the security, the privacy, the property, and the reasonable tranquility of honest, law-abiding, innocent Albertans?

JessicaFirewaterUntitled

Alberta may be seen as a poster-location for the kinds of violation named above. But – in various ways – such invasions are happening widely on the planet.   And there is a reason.

LSE professor Lord (Nicholas) Stern and thinktank Carbon Tracker state in a recent Report noted by Damian Carrington in The Guardian (Apr. 19, 2013) that instead of “reducing efforts to develop fossil fuels, the top 200 companies spent $674bn…in 2012 to find and exploit more….” That is about the sum named in a 2006 report that would “pay for a transition to a clean and sustainable economy”.

Stock markets “are betting on countries’ inaction on climate change”, the Report says. Stock markets are creating a Carbon Bubble not unlike the massive mortgage/derivatives/fake credit scandal of 2008. “If all goes well” – I say – countries will insist on internationally agreed Climate Change targets, and the “Carbon Bubble” will burst because of over-valuation of oil, coal, and gas reserves held by fossil fuel companies.  If all does not go well – Climate Change will ramp up beyond control.

It may be fair to say the same kinds of ‘investors’ are engaged in the present Carbon Bubble as were engaged in the 2008 blow-up … criminally irresponsible people willing to cause any kinds of destruction in their drive for wealth. The whole fossil fuels Bubble is being driven by greed … by big, irresponsible money.

To meet only present agreed Climate Change targets, it is estimated that at least two-thirds of present so-called fossil fuel ‘reserves’ will have to remain unexploited. But … instead of diminishing the push presently going on for hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’), it will probably intensify the push. As long as the pollutions created by hydraulic fracturing, by the huge environmental disruptions involved in its activities, and by the waste dumps it creates – as long as they aren’t registered by the present ‘Climate Change/global warming’ regulation machineries, the obviously destructive and dirty activity will be called “clean”.

Pumps&Swings

(But science knows the methane gas leaking and leaking into the environment (almost unmeasured and unrecorded) from oil and gas operations is a potent climate changer! Methane is said to be 25 times more potent in relation to Climate Change than carbon dioxide.  Who will bell the leaking methane cat?)

Redneck and Redford governments in Ottawa and Alberta (and elsewhere in the world) will attempt to criminalize any who resist “unconventional gas drilling” (‘fracking’). They will provide aid and comfort to corporations like Encana Corporation, and they will work to undermine courts seeking just adjudication of disputes about injury done from hydraulic fracturing.  They will do what they can to push for Liquid Natural Gas pipelines – hoping that a Climate Change clampdown on conventional extractions will raise prices on Hydraulically Fractured Gas.

Here is huge field for environmentalists, many of whom are already engaged in the gigantic task of revealing that – however it may (or may not) register on Climate Change measuring devices – the pollution from unconventional gas drilling (hydraulic fracturing, ‘fracking’) is a very, very Dirty Wildcat. Out of (seemingly) nowhere, in the last twenty years at most, one of the dirtiest “mining” operations in history has come into play and into visibility.

The more governments – like the Redneck government in Ottawa and the Redford government in Alberta – are absorbed into private corporate operations and dictated to by those corporations, the more they will resist just demands by citizens and populations for regulation.

The fight is worth it. The outcome certain. People all over the globe will not, ultimately, permit huge corporations and huge governments to desecrate the planet.  “The bigger they are”, remember, “the harder they fall.”

Fracking. The One Per Cent. Collapsing Canadian Courts. Jessica Ernst of Rosebud, Alberta. by Robin Mathews

Fracking. The One Per Cent. Collapsing Canadian Courts.  Jessica Ernst of Rosebud, Alberta.

by Robin Mathews

April 6, 2013

The One Per Cent, we know, control ‘the banks too big to fail’ and  the corporations too powerful to regulate – which includes (among other things) fracking enterprises worldwide.  The Canadian courts, we are beginning to know, operate – increasingly – outside the Rule of Law in matters concerning The One Per Cent … and fracking.

All over the globe fracking is fouling drinking water, lowering water tables, and endangering agriculture in the search, especially, for what is called “natural gas”. It is doing that in the area of Rosebud, Alberta, where Jessica Ernst makes her home.

All over the globe people are being affected, waking up alarmed, calling for investigation, research, regulation, laws to control fracking.  Jessica Ernst, scientist, oil patch operative, has been doing that for … for going on a decade.  Jessica Ernst has a 33 million dollar lawsuit against Encana*, Alberta Energy Regulators, and the Alberta government, a suit being propelled forward (very, very, very slowly) by the law firm called Klippenstein of Toronto, Ontario.

The fight is tough.  The Alberta Regulator – The Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) has argued it’s immune from lawsuits and has “no duty of care” to citizens complaining of groundwater contamination. That indicates the ‘style’ of the conflict about fracking: just who is working for whom?

As if to underscore that “style”, a sort-of shake-up is going on in Alberta energy regulation. A new chair of Alberta energy regulation has been named: Gerald J.  Protti, fifteen year officer at Encana and its predecessor PanCanadian Energy. Deborah Yedlin of Calgary Herald uses this phrase about his appointment: perhaps, she says, “putting the fox in charge of the hen house” (April 2, 2013).  That doesn’t quite describe the appointment: the fox, after all, wants to eat the hens. Maybe the poetic image should be “putting the Mafia chief in charge of criminal investigations”. Whatever, Mr. Protti is not believed by many to be an objective choice.  Par for the course.

Which takes us to the court and the astonishing (I don’t like to say it), almost unbelievable behaviour in the Court of Queen’s Bench, Calgary. (Par for the course?) To put the matter in very simple terms, I believe the administration of justice – in relation to Jessica Ernst’s case – is being brutalized and shredded by a combination of forces including the Stephen Harper forces in Ottawa and the Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench (with, doubtless, a cheering section from Alberta government and “the industry”).

The people behind the behaviour of Stephen Harper and Queen’s Bench are not openly visible.  You might say they’re The One Per Cent.

In brief, the judge on the Case Management process, Justice Barbara Veldhuis, about to rule on whether Jessica Ernst can sue the government regulator, was promoted from the Court of Queen’s Bench to the Alberta Appeals Court, removed, and prevented from making a finding. By the merest chance, the Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench Neil Wittmann volunteered to take over the matter.  And has done so.

All that, I suggest, is probably fraudulent behaviour.

To begin, the promotion of Barbara Veldhuis stinks to high heaven.  Why did she need to move?  She didn’t.  Who moved her?  The only person in Canada who could move her is Rob Nicholson, minister of justice, Ottawa – by which we may say Stephen Harper. Why would Stephen Harper want to reach into the Alberta higher court system and move Barbara Veldhuis?

The answer can only be, I suggest, someone feared that she was about to rule against the interests of The One Per Cent.

The promotion of Barbara Veldhuis, we may say, was ridiculous, unnecessary, and timed to destroy her work on the Jessica Ernst case.  We may say more.

Members of either of the senior Alberta courts mentioned – Queen’s Bench and Court of Appeal – are ex officio members of the other court (if the Wikipedia material on the Alberta courts is correct).  Members of those courts are – at the very least – able (at the direction of the Chief Justice) to work in the other court. And so Barbara Veldhuis could be promoted to the Alberta Appeals Court and could also make the ruling on the Jessica Ernst application in the Court of Queen’s Bench.

The whole business of promoting Justice Veldhuis and moving her and preventing her from making the ruling is … I suggest, sham, smoke-and-mirrors, a fraud. The shifting of judges on sensitive cases must be seen for the dangerous activity it is.

Remember that in British Columbia in 2010 a similar action occurred.  That action directly connects the Alberta Jessica Ernst case with the B.C. Supreme Court BC Rail Scandal case. And … Neil Wittmann, Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, is involved in both events.
Supreme Court of B.C. Justice Elizabeth Bennett was swiftly removed from the BC Rail Scandal trial as a result of her promotion, by Stephen Harper, to the Appeals Court.  She was replaced by Madam Justice Anne MacKenzie who, some allege, was placed there to protect premier Gordon Campbell, his team, and all the powerful private operators who are alleged to have corruptly transferred BC Rail to the CNR.

There is more. Anne MacKenzie was, within weeks, raised by Stephen Harper to the position of Associate Chief Justice of the B.C. Supreme Court.  And then in some months she was raised by Stephen Harper to the B.C. Appeals Court.

A key fact of her time as judge on the BC Rail Scandal (Basi, Virk, and Basi) case, was that she permitted in her court a Special (Crown) Prosecutor who she was told, formally, was appointed to his position in flagrant violation of the legislation governing the appointment of Special Prosecutors.

Such appointees have to be completely objective and wholly unconnected to political power and civil service officers. But the Special (Crown) Prosecutor, William Berardino, was appointed to the case by a ministry of the Attorney General in which the Attorney General had been his partner and colleague for seven years, and the Deputy Attorney General had been his partner and colleague for eleven years.

The evidence of the Special Prosecutor’s illegitimate appointment was so stark that I wrote to the Chief Justice, the Associate Chief Justice and the judge on the case – on two separate occasions, formally reporting the illegitimate appointment.  They answered, refusing to act.

Two of the accused were cabinet appointed aides reporting to cabinet members and acting on their behalf. And so the appointment of the Special Prosecutor, as I say, was in flagrant violation of the legislation governing such appointments. He was simply too connected (in fact and in perception) to the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General to have been appointed. There is not the slightest question about that.

Unsatisfied with the replies I received from the top judges of the B.C. Supreme Court, I decided to address a complaint to the Canadian Judicial Council – the highest body in the country. I made a formal complaint of misconduct on the part of Associate Chief Justice Anne MacKenzie in the matter of knowing the Special Crown Prosecutor in her court was there by illegitimate appointment.  She was conducting herself as if he was a legitimate appointment and so she was sullying the administration of justice.

The Canadian Judicial Council elected to have the Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench Neil Wittmann deal with my complaint.  On his behalf (as is standard practice) his agent on the Council replied to me.  He declared that Chief Justice Neil Wittmann concluded that the conduct of Associate Chief Justice Anne MacKenzie (which I had pointed out) was a not matter of conduct.  He dismissed my complaint.

I allege that his action supported an illegitimate trial, supported the major wrong-doers in the BC Rail Scandal, and supported the action of Stephen Harper in ‘conveniently’ promoting Justice Elizabeth Bennett, making way for Justice Anne MacKenzie.

That is the same Chief Justice Neil Wittmann who did not protest when Justice Barbara Veldhuis was promoted, did not exercise his discretion as Chief Justice to permit her as ex officio of both courts to make a finding on the Jessica Ernst application, and who volunteered himself to take over the Jessica Ernst action in Case Management with what must be deleterious results.

If he decides to re-hear arguments on the application that were presented in Calgary court in January 2013, he will be choosing to force Jessica Ernst to exceptional expense and delay.  If he chooses merely to read the transcripts of the arguments presented, he will be placing Ms. Ernst at risk of being misunderstood in the presentations made both for her by her lawyers and against her by those opposed to her

A fundamental convention of such cases is that judges are not changed – for the obvious reason that they carry all the information forward as the case develops. Plainly, Chief Justice Wittmann is at sea on this case, wallowing, and is going to have, somehow, to start afresh, causing anxiety, financial cost, delay, and stress to Jessica Ernst.  But, for all we know, that may be precisely (with Neil Wittmann’s and Stephen Harper’s cooperation) what The One Per Cent (who seem to be in charge of this case) want to have happen.

Chief Justice Neil Wittmann can’t help being suspected by many people of simply being a “plant” on the case to make certain that justice will never be done. The strange, sudden, and unusual shifts in the case bring the administration of justice into disrepute, even in the unlikely possibility that they are honest shifts. For all we know, additional facts calling Neil Wittmann’s role into question may well surface in the coming weeks and months.

What Canadians have to see clearly in these two important cases is that, I allege, the Stephen Harper forces in Ottawa interfered with the administration of justice in a manner that prevented justice from being done.  I believe they interfered intentionally to pollute the administration of justice.

Canadians must also see clearly that all the other judges of the higher courts in British Columbia and Alberta – and the Law Societies of both provinces – consented (by inaction) to the pollution – even when they were not a material part of it. We are witnessing the collapsing Canadian courts … and the eroding  Canadian legal system.

We are witnessing here, in particular, what I take to be a highly organized and concerted attack upon Jessica Ernst and her case by the federal ministry of justice (directed by Stephen Harper) and by the most powerful officer of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench -with the silent assent of legal experts who should be protesting loudly and publicly at the attack on the most basic foundations of democratic society.

The Rule Of Law in Canada: Another Stephen Harper Wreck

by Robin Mathews

February 24, 2013

Alberta energy specialist Andrew Nikiforuk (Tyee, Feb. 22, 2013) reports the involvement of the federal Minister of Justice in what may be called direct interference with the rule of law in Alberta. The story Nikiforuk tells leaves the trail of malfeasance clear and examinable.

In “a stunning move the Harper government” – through the Department of Justice (reports Andrew Nikiforuk) – has promoted a key judge (in a landmark fracking case) from the Court of Queen’s Bench to the Alberta Court of Appeal.  As Andrew Nikiforuk puts it, the move was made in order to remove Justice Barbara L. Veldhuis, presiding judge, from “the multi-million dollar ($33 million) lawsuit” being pressed by Jessica Ernst in the matter of fracking pollution and those responsible for it.

Madam Justice Veldhuis will be replaced.  Her replacement will automatically be questionable – suspected of being a “plant” to prejudice the case in favour of Stephen Harper and Encana, one of Canada’s largest natural gas producers.

Readers need to know that the judge on a case is usually – for very obvious reasons – bound to that case.  The judge is said to be “seized” with the case – meaning responsible for all aspects of it from beginning to end. Being “seized” usually means not to be interfered with, not unnecessarily delayed, NOT REPLACED  without very sound reason – because the judge knows most about the complications of the case.

The judge is “seized” also because law and courts have a long history of powers of all kinds wanting to get rid of judges in order to tamper with, change, and/or redirect the judgement in cases. That is one of the reasons a judge is “seized” – so that any meddling by power can be seen for what it is, an action intended to violate the fair administration of justice.

Jessica Ernst is fighting Encana. and was close to getting a ruling from Madam Justice Veldhuis that she could sue “Alberta’s energy regulator … for failing to uphold provincial rules, protect groundwater, and respect the constitutional rights of Canadians”.
That ruling would have placed a burden of responsibility upon frackers that they have been doing everything they can to avoid [with the full support of Stephen Harper, anti-environmentalist].

The Harper Junta interference is, I suggest, mischievous, prejudicial, scandalous, and stunning in its obviousness.

But we have been there before.

In the trial of Dave Basi, Bobby Virk, and Aneal Basi (part of the corrupt transfer of BC Rail to the CNR by the Gordon Campbell group) the judge “seized” with the matter was Madam Justice Elizabeth Bennett. The pre-trial and trial ran from after the laying of charges in December 2004 to the outrageous explosive-ending of the trial in October 2010.

But that ending happened without Elizabeth Bennett presiding.

For – like Justice Barbara L. Veldhuis in the fracking case – Bennett was removed in what many believe was a Stephen Harper decision to protect his ‘friends’ – Gordon Campbell and others.

In order to defend the accused, Defence lawyers had to call for RCMP officers’ notebooks, for investigation records, for materials in BC Rail headquarters, for government records of pre-sale manipulations, and much more. At almost every call, RCMP delayed.  The Special Crown Prosecutor fudged and fumbled. Almost every time, Madam Justice Bennett upheld the Defence request as a reasonable part of the rights of the accused to defend against the charges against them.

Out of the blue Madam Justice Elizabeth Bennett – by the power that only resides in the Minister of Justice in Ottawa – was raised to the B.C. Appeal Court. Would she leave the matter that she was  seized with?  In theory, she didn’t have to.

Then a nightmare event happened in the B.C. Supreme Court.  Out of nowhere the bulldog Associate Chief Justice of the day Patrick Dohm appeared to preside at a process.

The apparent reason for the event was for the Special Prosecutor William Berardino to make a motion that Madam Justice Elizabeth Bennett be removed from the case.  He gave two reasons. The first and completely ridiculous reason was that she couldn’t be in two places at once – and so must go.  The second reason he evinced was that she had incorrectly employed process.  That I believe was a wholly false assertion.

Associate Chief Justice Patrick Dohm received the motion with enthusiasm … and with such approval that he admitted he had already chosen the person to succeed Elizabeth Bennett.  That meant he had to have chosen Bennett’s replacement before there was a motion to have a replacement made!

The Special Prosecutor, incidentally, had been appointed in flagrant violation of the legislation governing the appointment of Special Prosecutors.  William Berardino was not noted for experience in criminal prosecutions. But he had been partner and colleague for seven years of the sitting Attorney General Geoff Plant.  And he had been partner and colleague for eleven years of the sitting Deputy Attorney General Allan Seckel. Because of those connections he was completely unqualified for the appointment he received.

It seems he was to focus on the three men, to get a judgement against them, and to show to British Columbians that there had been real wrongdoers in the “sale” of BC Rail, three of them, three (lower level) Sikh employees, and they were all charged and were all convicted.  Justice triumphs! End of story.

It didn’t work. Mr. Berardino was confronted by excellent Defence counsel. They made a strong and fair case that defence of the accused could only be made by examining the actions of their highly dubious superiors…who gave orders.

Madam Justice Bennett permitted that reasonable defence.

Madam Justice Bennett was removed.

She was replaced by Madam Justice Anne MacKenzie who was very soon elevated – a few weeks later – to Associate Chief Justice upon the retirement of Patrick Dohm. Quite soon after the end of the Basi, Virk, and Basi trial, she was elevated to the British Columbia Appeal Court.

Her role, it seemed to me sitting in the courtroom, was to get the case back to the three men only.  But it didn’t work.

The trial became a hilarious display of amnesia … almost of general Altzheimers Disease. Gordon Campbell’s decade-long chief of staff, Martyn Brown, could remember almost nothing. A member of the BC Rail Board, Brian G. Kenning, could hardly remember his own name, and didn’t even finish his testimony before the trial ended. And there were to be about twenty-five more of the same to come.

If the cross-examination had continued in the same way – and it might have grown worse – the cover-up of major wrongdoers would, I am sure, have exploded. Something had to be done to end it. Backroom dealing went into high gear. The three accused agreed to what might be called charges reduced to almost nothing.  The government of Gordon Campbell agreed to pay all of the ($6 million) costs of Defence.

The $6 million (that might be called a bribe by some) to avoid criminal charges against top politicians and corporate ‘leaders’ (and perhaps some years behind bars for them) was cheap. It was a breach of procedure and was paid out of the pockets of the taxpayers of British Columbia – but what the hell!  It worked.

Stephen Harper’s ‘friends’ got out of it all unscathed – and without paying a penny – by the simple action of the Minister of Justice in Ottawa stepping in (on Stephen Harper’s orders?), and promoting Madam Justice Elizabeth Bennett from the B.C. Supreme Court to the B.C Appeal Court. To prove his prowess in the matter, Stephen Harper then appointed Gordon Campbell to what is perhaps the highest diplomatic position a Canadian can hold – Canadian High Commissioner in London.

In both cases, in B.C. and Alberta, the Stephen Harper Junta has used the courts and the administration of justice, I believe, to violate trust, to support alleged wrongdoers who might be found to be in serious fault or even criminally responsible, and to make justice in Canada a plaything of corrupt power.

I suggest that only a government powered by a psychopath could so viciously and openly attack the rule of law in Canada.
