COMMENTARY · 2nd July 2011
Merv Ritchie
Waving red and white flags with maple leafs and singing “we stand of guard for thee” What a bunch of liars. Most Canadians wouldn’t stand on guard for their children at a cross walk.

I can’t tell you how many times I have had to explain the difference between a Premier and a Prime Minister, and even how many times I have been asked, “Who is our president?” by grown men and women.

Right across Canada, throughout even the supposedly ‘knowledgeable’ media, Canadians have become the most politically un-astute citizenry since the Stone Age.

BC’s last premier, Gordon Campbell didn’t even bother debating his policies in the Provincial Legislature. He just declared things law, made decisions and wiped his hands together as if dusting them off and then walked away not caring about the people. And he could get away with that because Canadians only got involved enough to bitch while downing their Tim’s coffee. I still squirm when I think about how Campbell’s criminal behaviour, driving while completely tanked in Hawaii, was excused by everyone in politics and the media. They claimed it wasn’t criminal in Hawaii so there was nothing much they could do. Well we arrest guys who have sex with children in South Asian countries where it isn’t so criminal. So what’s the difference? His action was criminal here yet he was allowed to continued to decimate BC’s public infrastructure and now has been promoted to an ambassador to London.

Taking a page from Campbells book, Christy Crunch wouldn’t even debate with David Eby or any other Candidate during the Point Grey by election, (in which she narrowly got her seat), and wont debate the HST with Dix. Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Go blow!

And speaking about criminal behaviour, Canada, Canadians, are currently bombing a sovereign country, killing civilians in a completely criminal act of war and aggression. The entire UN declaration of a ‘No Fly Zone’ was a pre-emptive action. Colonel Kaddafi “might” kill some of his own people so we’d better go and bomb the hell out of his country! And why are words so misconstrued? “A No Fly Zone” means everyone can fly there except the sovereign countries own planes. How flipping stupid are Canadians?

But this is not the half of it.

Canada, with its current Prime Minister, has signed away Canada’s right to dictate its own policies, border laws, military engagements, commercial contracts and resource extraction regulations. It is like we no longer have the right to be a separate Country, making good common sense decisions for the good of Canadians.

Why we fly a maple leaf flag is beyond me. We should be flying the American Flag or better yet the flag of the UN. If the IMF had a flag we should really be flying it. The IMF? It is the International Mafioso Federation more commonly known as the International Monetary Fund..

This is the organization which truly dictates policy. Something every sovereign government used to be able to do. But now we have a New World Order, which was officially announced by Britain’s PM, Gordon Brown in April of 2009 after the fabrication of the financial crisis in 2008. But of course the so very responsible main stream media covered this in great depth explaining to every Canadian and American how their governments were no longer able to make sovereign independent decisions regardless of who we elect.

Look at Greece as an example. They have just bent over and took it for the IMF. But what choice did they have? Look at the reality just for a moment. Greece couldn’t even pay the interest on their debt, let alone the principle.

Imagine going to your local bank and explaining that you had been able to make at least the interest payments on your loan but now times are even tougher and you need to borrow more money from them just to pay them the interest. Now imagine being thrown out through the plate glass window. That is how laughable it is. Yet the IMF is prepared to lend more money. The kicker is, like all Mafioso organizations, they take everything; bridges ,water, land, roads, utilities, railways – everything! Railways, hmmm doesn’t something ring a bell here? Hmmm BC Rail that’s right, Gordie boy gave that away to the private new world order without so much as a whimper. But then that was just before he was invited to the secretive New World Order Bilderberg meeting, just before he resigned to accept the London ambassador position.

All western Governments learned a truly great lesson in 1985 after the French secret service sunk the Greenpeace vessel, ‘Rainbow Warrior’ in a New Zealand Harbour. The New Zealand authorities (until then a sovereign government) arrested and charged those French secret service agents responsible for killing the photographer on board who was developing the film footage of the French nuclear bomb testing in the South Pacific. What lesson did the New Zealanders, and subsequently the rest of the western trading nations learn?

Not even Canada would allow the import of New Zealand products.

No western country would trade with New Zealand until they released the French secret service agents who clandestinely entered their sovereign country in a failed attempt to stop the exposure of their criminality, nuclear bomb testing, potentially destroying the planet. New Zealand went broke; had to beg to be able to trade in the world markets again.

In 1200 AD a revolt against the same organization, the bankers, the money lenders, took place. Responsible government leaders determined to stand up against the hardship imposed on their starving subjects. In those days in England it was the Barons. They saw families dying in starvation on the streets. In 1200 it was all due to the interest being charged by the Jewish money lenders. In those days it was illegal, against Christian law, to charge interest. It is still against Muslim law. As far back as the writings in the Old Testament the act of “Usury” (charging interest) was a sin. Even the Jewish Torah saw it as wrong forbiding it amongst themselves. They were, however, still allowed to charge interest to non Jews.

The revolt against the hardship resulted in the signing of the Magna Carta, which was all but decimated in the following years, regardless of how people think it is the foundation of our civilization. The Magna Carta needs to be re-implemented with all its original words, something the MP’s (members of the Canadian parliament) can’t seem to understand. They won’t even stand up for Canadian values.

Canada, as a sovereign Country has the ability to print its own money and circulate it to build infrastructure projects. It could lend the money at zero interest too. But just like New Zealand, if you do not play by the rules of the International Mafioso Federation your Country will be denied imports and exports from all the other sucker nations who have sacrificed their sovereignty to the IMF.

Today Canada, with our new dictator, Prime Minister Steven Harper, is bombing another Country, which actually was sovereign. Libya refused to play they game. They printed their own money. If you wanted to buy their oil you had to buy it with their money, the Dinar. They didn’t have to appease the New World Order of the IMF. Same thing went for Iraq. They had free education and healthcare. Just before Saddam was bombed (again another criminal action) he had decided to sell his oil in Euros not US dollars. No Mafioso organization can stand disrespect. Saddam was finally hung by a rope from the neck. His real crime was standing up against the IMF, the World Bank and providing a good life for the citizenry.

Why is Canada committed to buying the same planes as the US military uses? Because we are one and the same, we are the same military force. Steven Harper signed away Canada’s sovereignty long ago. The charade of being Canada is being kept up for your personal entertainment.

Here is another small issue to consider to prove the point. When the economy crashed in 2008 the only item which hasn't really recovered is the stock market pension funds. They were lost. Twenty years ago the debate about the ability for the pensions funds to support the looming "baby boomers " was discussed with great concern. The fabricated financial crisis solved much of that. The new item being destroyed during union contract negotiations and IMF imposed demands, is the unlocking of pensions to cost of living and the requirement of governments and industry to match required payments regardless of stock market losses. These same pension demands are being made in Greece. All across the globe the governments speak about "Austerity Measures". We are all being used and abused.

25 years after the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior and the destruction of the New Zealanders economy the tools of the IMF have become even more insidious and manipulative. You are a pion. Retirement in comfort and security after working 40 to 50 years? Who are you kiddin?

The truth is far crazier than this short essay. Why don’t you know? Why haven’t you been told? A simple Google search will explain who owns all the media channels. Those are the primary sources for all the information you receive every day. This is the same reason you are not being informed of the various nuclear accidents in North America. Why you are not being told Japan is twenty times worse than Chernobyl. It takes more than watching the boob tube, the idiot box, ohhh! That’s why they call it that!

Oh Canada, Oh Canada, Oh Canada. Wave your flag. Look at the Prince and Princess, watch your survivor, and see your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren etc etc etc, locked in poverty, slavery and destitution for evermore. Oh wait, we suppose you can always pray to your God. That’ll make it all better. Just like the ‘ol head in the sand trick.
No patriostism here....
Comment by A.Heidl on 15th July 2011
How TRUE..of course I was a Canadian in Japan during everything that went down and I was ignored and had not help from the Canadian embassy,,,, Libya was top new and then proceeding the re-election..We all knew that was a waste of time..
And now I am still trying to get help from the government and being pushed aside, yet a foreigner, who had the misfortunes of returning to her home country and being abused and harmed by her husband which is not to be taken lightly, is being taken care of by our own government. Her flight back to Canada along with housing and all hospital bills covered by our government, or in other words our tax dollars. I am not trying to sounds rude, but I am sincerely sorry for this woman, but I, who am a Canadian citizen was in a horrific event and attempted to seek help from my own government and was pushed aside and sent in the infamous circles of "my issue "not fitting in provincial or federal issues......This just goes to show that Canada does not care about its citizens but care about showing immigrants that they will take care of them.
And people wonder why I am not hooting my Canadian patriotism....
you`ve got it

Thanks for enlightening the people. IMF, UN, Libya, Greece ect. We`ve lost our countrty. Time for a revolution.
Comment by Coppereagle on 7th July 2011
Bravo, Merv! It's not everyone who sees the truth, much less speaks about it. Cancer in a person is scary and intimidating, cancer in society is no less. However, the IMF wants us all to believe cancer is incurable; they're wrong. Anything is curable if we choose to open our eyes, and our ears.
My mistake.
Comment by Janice P. Robinson on 6th July 2011
The question is: How did PUBLIC PROPERTY of the TSIMSHIAN (the People), as represented by the esteemed Tsimshian House of Gitxon (eg. hotsprings) get into PRIVATE hands??

How is it possible for such a treasure, as the hotsprings at Lach Gels, to ever be owned by any private entity??

One tires of educating/answering foolish questions>
It's not so "new."
Comment by Janice P. Robinson on 6th July 2011
It's about time you all woke up. Our WAAP (House) was informed of the "new world order" back in April, 1937. The Indian Agent disrespectfully entered my great-grandmother's (big) house, on Tsimshian Territory, and told her that, "All eight" grandchildren who lived with her must get out, and get out of the village too. As soon as possible. " They are not Indians." They were my Mother, her brothers, and her sisters. A direct hit to the heart of Waap Gitxon. This event is recorded. How our public territories (eg. hot springs at Lach Gel) became public properties is beyond me. Some things are beyond private ownership. Agreed?

My Mother has written, in her own hand, that "treaty talks are dangerous." Because of the Tsimshian "treaty negotiations," I witnessed her being slandered, exploited, mistreated and THREATENED. Why?

As a Chief Matriarch of Waap Gitxon, she stood for important, public properties of the Tsimshian. When asked what she (we) could do to assuage the unwelcome wrath of treaty engineers, she was told that, "You can all cease to exist."

We can't do that, so we mind our own business, let go, and let God. Be true.
Orwell Rolls In His Grave
Comment by Karen Dedosenco on 5th July 2011
“We believe the picture painters of the mass media are artfully creating landscapes for us which deliberately hide the real picture."

Watch this documentary on the manipulation of the masses and see how a nation has been brainwashed.
Don’t confuse me with the facts.
Comment by Merv on 4th July 2011
In 1971 Gary Allen published a small paperback book titled “None Dare Call It Conspiracy”. It was an in-depth expose’ on the control and corruption of the main international banks over all politics and nations. The opening of the first chapter tells a great story on why our friends and neighbours can't see what is right in front of them.

“Most of us have had the experience, either as parents or youngsters, of trying to discover the “hidden picture” within another picture in a children’s magazine. Usually you are shown a landscape with trees, bushes, flowers and other bits of nature. The caption reads something like this; ‘Concealed somewhere in this picture is a donkey pulling a cart with a boy in it. Can you find them?’ Try as you might, usually you could not find the hidden picture until you turned to a page further back in the magazine which would reveal how cleverly the artist had hidden it from us. If we study the landscape we realize that the whole picture was painted in such a way as to conceal the real picture within, and once we see the ‘real picture’, it stands out like the proverbial painful digit.

“We believe the picture painters of the mass media are artfully creating landscapes for us which deliberately hide the real picture. […] Millions of Americans are concerned and frustrated over mishappenings in our nation. They feel that something is wrong, drastically wrong, but because of the picture painters they can’t quite put their fingers on it.”

'Don't Confuse Me With The Facts' was the heading of this first chapter of his book.

Gary wrote this a full 40 years ago. How about that, 40 years later and the misinformation, misguided news broadcasts, have most us all believing the spew issued forth by the political leaders and international ‘experts’. Why can’t the Humanitarian aid ship leave Greece? Because they now have to follow the directives of the IMF, remember they just accepted the IMF’s “austerity measures”. And who doesn’t want aid to get to the Gaza strip? And who runs the IMF (the money lenders)?

In the 70’s Gary Allen’s book opened my eyes to see. I wish the same for everyone.
From Albert Einstein
Comment by Helmut Giesbrecht on 4th July 2011
In 1949 Albert Einstein wrote an article on capitalism and the brand of socialism which he favored. Interesting was that he rejected completely the brand of communism so often used as an epithet by Mike Roch.

Here is a part of the article. Please read at least the second paragraph. (Quote) "Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population. Moreover, under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.

The situation prevailing in an economy based on the private ownership of capital is thus characterized by two main principles: first, means of production (capital) are privately owned and the owners dispose of them as they see fit; second, the labor contract is free. Of course, there is no such thing as a pure capitalist society in this sense. In particular, it should be noted that the workers, through long and bitter political struggles, have succeeded in securing a somewhat improved form of the "free labor contract" for certain categories of workers. But taken as a whole, the present day economy does not differ much from "pure" capitalism.

Production is carried on for profit, not for use. There is no provision that all those able and willing to work will always be in a position to find employment; an "army of unemployed" almost always exists. The worker is constantly in fear of losing his job. Since unemployed and poorly paid workers do not provide a profitable market, the production of consumers' goods is restricted, and great hardship is the consequence. Technological progress frequently results in more unemployment rather than in an easing of the burden of work for all. The profit motive, in conjunction with competition among capitalists, is responsible for an instability in the accumulation and utilization of capital which leads to increasingly severe depressions. Unlimited competition leads to a huge waste of labor, and to that crippling of the social consciousness of individuals which I mentioned before.

This crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism. Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive success as a preparation for his future career." (End of Quote).

I read this first back when Canada was debating the Free Trade. Those two principles mentioned in paragraph 2 were undermined by Free Trade because not only could capital now be moved across borders freely the pressure would follow on the labor contract. While the labor contract has not been made "free" it certainly has made it easier for the owners to put pressure on labor. The repeated refrain about us having to be friendly to investors is the evidence.

It does cause me to wonder if this was all part of the plan when Mulroney brought in Free Trade. Did a bunch of suits sit in some boardroom and decide that in order to squeeze workers they had to be able to get rid of borders and thereby remove any restriction when doing business. Did they decide that this economic pressure and the possibility of launching a flight of capital was the hammer they needed?

One thing is clear, Einstein noticed it even in 1949.
Good article.
Comment by Sheldon Davidson on 4th July 2011
Great Article, Merv.

For those who say that the New World Order is a product of a conspiracy they would be correct.

However, those who call it a conspiracy theory are incorrect.

Here is undeniable proof that the leaders of the word have been conspiring to create this new order of the world for at least 18 years:
(March 6, 1991)

Since Gordon Brown officially declared the New World Order in April 2009 this shows that there were talks in secret by the powers that be at some point between 1991 and 2009 about the creation of said New Order of the World.

Googles definition of a conspiracy; "A secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful"

Yes, I would consider this world order that they have constructed to be harmful to the 99.99%+ of the people on this planet (the 0.01% or less that actually profit are those who are already super rich). What has been created is a world wide power structure that has not been democratically voted into place nor has it been endorsed by the majority of the people on the planet.

The power structure stays in place because of private and secret meetings amongst the most rich and powerful people on the planet. Some of these meetings have names such as the builderburg group, the bohemian club, the CFR, the trilateral Commission and the Skull and Bones Society. Some of the leaders of the world hold memberships to several of these organizations. Membership is not determined by the public and none of these organizations I have listed here are actual official state organizations - they are private groups with private memberships (builderburg can actually be considered a secret group with secret invite only memberships). These organizations that make decisions that influence nation states are done in secret behind closed doors. Some of these private organizations like the CFR were created by wealthy international banking families and not your elected officials as their name seams to imply. Some of the groups do have government funding sourced from the tax payer even though they are not considered official government events. Builderburg, for example, has some of the tightest security for any meeting in the world and I know for a fact that good security isn't cheep.

A few of the organizations have been around for 100 years or more and it could be argued that their agenda and motives have not changed since the foundations of the organizations were created.

While no one of these organizations controls the planet (as that would be an absurd statement) the members of these groups consist exclusively of the wealthy elite and do not represent the masses of people. Those who own the majority of the wealth on the planet do not have the same interests in mind as the rest of us. Using their positions of power it is not hard to imagine that they will attempt to influence decisions based on their own set of values.

The NWO is unlawful

While one has the choice to vote for different political parties in a democratic process those who are elected to power are often never the ones to make some of the most important decisions a nation can make. Due to the private and often secret nature of these powerful, influential organizations we are actually never informed of many of the decisions that are made. I have been deceived into believing that I was in control. I believed that if I voted that all the knots in society will be ironed out because of the democratic process that society fought to create. This democratic process has become a smoke screen for what is actually happening in secret.

I see this deceit as a direct attack on my personal Sovereignty. Any attack on my Sovereignty is unlawful and its my understanding that this is known as a form of treason.

"By mike Roch
why don't u move to Russia u commie "

Obvious troll is obvious.

Merv has pointed out that CANADA has instilled the 5th plank of the communist manifesto by running the economy off of the IMF backed fiat currencies. Troll harder next time.

No mention should need be said about how many of the other 9 planks of the communist manifesto have been instilled in this country as most of them have already been in place for years.

As Merv says, the truth is far more complicated than what can be put into a few paragraphs. What is really important is that as citizens of the world we have a responsibility to educate ourselves about the world around us to ensure that we will survive beyond our present generation. The current generation has a lower life expectancy than the last one due to the declining declining nutrient levels in our food and the ever increasing toxins in the air and water. This leads me to believe we are failing as a civilization but we have not failed yet.

While ignorance may be bliss, it may also be a large contributing factor in the extinction of our civilization. Our best bet to ensure survival is to educate ourselves.

Regarding the selloff of Canada
Comment by Mr. Wiebe on 2nd July 2011
Mr Richie

Alas I am afraid you give Harper too much credit. Canada has been a bargain basement clearance warehouse for raw materials for the world since it's inception. Do your readers know that Canada is the number two supplier and exporter of raw uranium worldwide? We are second only behind Kazakstan - now that's really something to chirp about. Do your readers know that under international law we can be on the hook to take back all the nice spent uranium - the thousands of tons of this malevolent carcinogenic crap thats now spread worldwide - because it originated here? Harper won't be adverstising that, he can't even be bothered to monitor the amount of fallout we are getting, except maybe for him and his merry cohorts, but that would be classified, not for the indentured slaves to ask or know. Canada has been used as a stockpile for the pillaging, whether it be troops to use as cannon fodder for world wars and numerous illegal wars of empire and hubris, or for other loot. Then came Lyin Brian, he started the ball rolling with his detestable free trade - treason in any other jargon, and the momentum of that sellout of our sovereignty and resources has increased exponentially under Cretin, Martin and now the resident fraud in chief. So, you should really give credit where its due.
