After 18 months of enormous struggle & several crushing setbacks, WRISEUP.COM is finally on the verge of re-launching as a full-scale DAILY digital newsmag – but we DESPERATELY need YOUR help

Just as it began to seem like our 18-month-long struggle – highlighted by several crushing setbacks – would never end, a woman of modest means but an enormous heart appeared out of nowhere and offered to become our atrickledown“angel” and revitalize our dream of launching a viable alternative to Canada’s corrupt and hopelessly compromised mainstream media. This most generous angel is now providing just a very modest amount of start-up capital that might be enough to get us off the ground – But we would still DESPERATELY need YOUR help too!
WRISEUP.COM’s mission is to speak truth to power – whether or not the self-anointed powers-that-be want to hear the ugly truth about the horrific reality they have created; to reveal who benefits and who loses from existing policies and proposed changes to official policy; to propose and crusade for viable alternatives that would better serve the Other99%; to offer our readers “news for the Other99%, by the Other99%”; to offer a credible and authoritative alternative to the pro-Establishment and pro-status-quo corruption of almost all of Canada’s mainstream media; and to stand tall for politicial, cultural, racial, judicial, economic and social justice – not just in Canada but around the world.
Starting with a minimum of just four stories each day – tentatively beginning on Thursday, September 8, 2016 – plus a daily reader opinion poll, WRISEUP.COM will examine Canadian, U.S. and world affairs – politics; economics; environmental affairs; social & cultural affairs; education; health & healthcare; labour & the workplace; law & order; crime & punishment; freedom, privacy, human rights and asocialjusticegovernment/corporate surveillance; science & technology; etc. – from a very-hard-hitting, no-holds-barred, no-sacred-cows, anti-Establishment, anti-corporate, anti-so-called-“free-trade”, anti-status-quo, non-partisan perspective – promoting a massive redistribution of wealth, income and power in Canada – from the Top1% to the Other99% – and a more equitable and inclusive society.
The one final possible hitch in this start-up plan is that it is our “angel”‘s intention to make the cash transfer to our business account to finance an extremely modest start-up on Wednesday, September 7. However, it is today – Tuesday, September 6, that our angel will be undergoing her first cancer treatment and I suspect that just one day after having her first-ever round of radiation and/or chemotherapy, that our angel may not be quite ready to deal with banking chores. Even with her great heart and her enormous generosity, however, we will still need YOUR help.
WRISEUP.COM wholeheartedly shares the view of many that – to whatever extent possible – information should be free. But, as you can imagine, obtaining serious financing for such a revolutionary, apoliticalrevolutionanti-Establishment and anti-status-quo alternative media start-up. That is why we are PLEADING WITH YOU to cough up just $3.65 – just one penny per day – for a one-year subscription. For those who truly cannot afford even just one penny per day or just will not relent and pay just one penny per day for a serious and credible alternative to the corrupt mainstream media, we will ALWAYS make a portion of each day’s website content “free-access”. But because our viability and long-term survival are dependent on us generating at least a modest amount of start-up working capital, we will also ALWAYS reserve a portion of each day’s website content for “subscribers only”. ALL WE CAN PROMISE in return is that we can achieve our goal of just 100,000 pre-paid subscribers within 365 days, we will no long need to sell subscriptions and we will halt the unsavoury practice. But as an ongoing tribute to all those other potential “angels” out there who choose to chip in just $3.65 to this modest first-year “crowd-funding” effort, we will convert all of your one-year subscriptions into lifetime subscriptions – at no additional cost whatsoever – and ALWAYS reserve a portion of each day’s website content exclusively for you.
Will YOU please give us that vital “hand up”?

What Canada can learn from Donald Trump’s victory – about “democracy” & about the perils of a “divide & conquer” strategy

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

Amerikkka’s Ownership/Real Ruling Class should be somewhat concerned about the ongoing viability of the “democratic” sham it has foisted aaaaaaaaaaabostonteapartyon the Other99% ever since the semi-literate masses were conned into supporting the Boston Tea Party 243 years ago on the deceptive premise that the event was about creating a nation of freedom and of democracy.
By now, it must be evident to a growing swath of Americans that U.S. elections are about nothing more than “permitting the aaaaaaaaaaaoligarchyunwashed masses” to take their pick between two puppet political prostitutes who’ve been bought-and-paid-for and anointed by the Ownership/Real Ruling Class, to try and decipher which of the mere two viable choices is really the “lesser” of the two evils.

What does Donald Trump’s victory say about social stability in the U.S. and the state of American so-called “democracy”?

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

Most of the pundits and pollsters were shocked a couple of days ago when Donald Trump managed to defeat Hillary Clinton to become the aaaaaaaaaatrump45th U.S. president. Clinton herself was so devastated as she saw her almost-certain victory slowly slip away on Tuesday night that she wasn’t even able to deliver a concession speech until the next day. But what should be ofaaaaaaaaaahillary greater concern than the experts’ miscalculations were the very troubling factors behind Trump’s win and what it tells us that Amerikkka and the world have to fear in the coming years.
A victory by either Trump or Clinton would likely have been equally catastrophic for ongoing social and economic stability. A victory by either would have illustrated equally well how dysfunctional both U.S. “democracy” and society have become. And a victory by either would certainly have been an equally massive LOSS for the Other99%.

The abysmal ignorance of brainwashed RWNJ haters has turned Amerikkka into a repository of fear & paranoia – little more than a dog-eat-dog capitalist jungle & cesspool

aaaaaaaaawhitesupremacistsBy Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

The gun-loving, white-supremacist right-wing nutjobs who so worship the U.S. Constitution and especially the 2nd Amendment which they so commonly misunderstand need to learn to read and get a copy of the original un-amended U.S. Constitution and see for themselves just what kind of elitist, anti-democratic republic the so-called “Founding Fathers” actually had in mind. And the need to give their heads a shake – collectively – and realize that they are nothing but sorry-ass pawns in the Top1%’s perpetual “divide & conquer” strategy.
The clear intention of the “Founding Fathers” was that the ONLY PEOPLE who would EVER be allowed to vote or to hold any elected public office would be WEALTHY WHITE MALES. The society they wanted to create would be one in which no one but aaaaaaaaaoligarchy2wealthy white males would ever wield political power – even wealthy white women would be second-class citizens – if they had any status whatsoever as citizens – along with the descendants of kidnapped African brought to Amerikkka to provide slave labor forever; the descendants of the aboriginals from whom this vast land and all its natural wealth were stolen; the descendants of early indentured servants who would likely never acquire any significant wealth after long years of menial servitude to the wealthier Europeans who paid for their sea passage to the so-called New World; and myriad variety of future immigrants – especially those of any color other than white – who would be lured to this new continent with the promise of “milk and honey” only to find upon their arrival that what was really waiting for them would be oil and vinegar.

Is the incessant “false-flag” scapegoating of Russia & of Vladimir Putin meant to condition us to accept World War III?

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

While it has become particularly fashionable in recent years for the U.S., NATO and other western countries to blame Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, for all the woes in the world, the simple truth is that the scapegoating of Putin and of Russia are nothing aaaaaaaaaukrainebut thinly-veiled efforts at “false-flagging” the formerly Communist country for all the aaaaaaaaaputinfailings of the west’s crony corporate capitalism and for the dire consequences of failed U.S./NATO efforts to dominate and control the entire world. Fortunately for the brainwashed western masses, however, it is only Putin’s & Russia’s pushback that have prevented a worldwide corporate-capitalist dictatorship.
Several years ago, U.S. president Barack Obama was supposed to have pressed the reset button for America’s relationship with Russia, intimating to the unwashed masses that this initiative was sincere and genuine. Truth be told, however, the west’s intent was merely to lull Putin and Russia into accepting increased worldwide U.S./NATO militarism.

Is the current scandal surrounding Quebec police surveillance of working journalists just the tip of a horrific, terrifying, anti-democratic national spy iceberg?

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

Earlier this week Quebec Liberal Premier Phillippe Couillard announced a public inquiry after it was revealed that the Montreal policeaaaaaaaapolice (SPVM) and the provincial police (Surete du Quebec or SQ) had been conducting illegal surveillance on at least half a dozen Quebec journalists. It is scary enough when supposedly “democratic” governments routinely conduct surveillance and store meta data on journalists. But what is even scarier is that citizen aaaaaaaasuretesurveillance by governments, by police departments, by spy agencies and even by corporations has now reached a level where it has become a clear and present danger to the freedom and the well-being of any citizen who is not a supporter of the Establishment and of a status quo that is leaving far too many people by the wayside.

Can anything be done to stop yet another job-killing, corporate-style “free trade” deal from coming down the pipe in the form of the TPP?

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

While it may have been Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s lurch to the left – after woefully inept NDP leader Thomas Mulcair sent his aaaaaaaatrudeaumulcairerstwhile working-class party careening toward the right like a drunken sailor last September 25 – that gave Trudeau his massive majority, his government’s actions – or lack thereof – and the incremental shifting of its rhetoric back toward the right post-election – represent yet another massive betrayal of working-class and middle-class Canadians.
Yes, the charismatic and boyish Justin Trudeau may make a lot of women and a lot of gay men swoon but the legacy he is beginning to weave as prime minister – particularly with his strong support for even more job-killing, corporate-style, so-called “free trade” deals – will once again exclude most Canadians from any new national wealth.aaaaaaaadistributionofwealth To put it very simply, the entire goal of these job-killing free-trade deals is nothing more and nothing less than converting high-level middle-class salaries and working-class wages into windfall profits for Canadian and foreign billionaires and mega-millionaires, even as almost the entire domestic workforce is left to take it on the chin yet again.

1,800 miles (2,938 kM) apart, aboriginal protectors wage an uphill battle to ensure the safety of the drinking water of 17 million North Americans

By Henry McRandall

When the first European (white) “settlers” – along with their pedophile “Christian” missionaries – began arriving in the so-called “New aaaaaaaasettlersWorld” 500 years ago, the massive land grab – and the two worst genocides in history that aaaaaaaamissionarieswould be part-and-parcel of their grand scheme – would give the Ownership/Ruling Class among the newcomers control of a humongous swath of real estate not only precious for its resources and its agriculturally-friendly climate but also for soil and water so pure and pristine it was the likes of which almost no living European had ever seen or even imagined. For millennia, the aboriginal people who were in the so-called “New World” first had made it a mission of their lives to protect and to live in harmony with their environment. The trashing by the “newcomers” of that sacred legacy has now become so complete that the very survival of humankind now hangs in the balance as the decimated Original population of “protectors” fights – almost alone – for the survival of us all: Continue reading “1,800 miles (2,938 kM) apart, aboriginal protectors wage an uphill battle to ensure the safety of the drinking water of 17 million North Americans”

Can ANYTHING other than a full-scale public inquiry end the massive, routine corruption & fraud at OLG (the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corp.)?

Amerikkka’s Ownership/Ruling Class forces voters to choose between Satan Trump & Lucifer Clinton — and calls THIS “democracy”

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

In just a few days, the last few millions of disillusioned and reluctant U.S. voters will trudge to their local polling stations, hold their noses and – most likely – cast a presidential ballot for either aaaaaaatrumpRepublican nominee Donald (Satan) Trump or Democratic nominee Hillary (Lucifer) Clinton.aaaaaaaclinton Many will then despondently head back home to wait for the sorry news – regardless of which of these two depraved misfits wins the election – and wonder when the next shoe will drop, after a seemingly endless and exceedingly brutal campaign that has made the wealthiest and most powerful country on Earth a laughing stock across most of the world. The sad reality is that both of these sociopathic phonies are equally deceitful, demented and dangerous and the rise of either to ultimate power will only serve to further destabilize both the U.S. and the entire world: Continue reading “Amerikkka’s Ownership/Ruling Class forces voters to choose between Satan Trump & Lucifer Clinton — and calls THIS “democracy””

1 year after its majority election, Canada’s shiny new Liberal govt. has earned a FAILING GRADE on everything but rhetoric, deception & promoting the hell out of boyish “charmer” Justin Trudeau

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

One year ago last week, Justin Trudeau – a son of charismatic and flamboyant late Canadian Liberal prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, who governed this country for most of the years from 1968 to 1983 – stunned most pundits by turning a losing campaign into a smashing aaaaaaajustinhalloweenmajority on October 16, 2015. Trudeau The Son won the election by cobbling together a very “leftish” campaign rhetoric at the very moment that incompetent and elitist NDP leader Thomas Mulcair was demolishing Canada’s 55-year-old working-class party. While Mulcair’s ill-conceived notion that pivoting the NDP’s agenda sharply toward the right at aaaaaathomas3a time when decades of economic stagnation were pushing the majority of Canadians toward the left, created a massive void on the progressive side of the political spectrum that Justin Trudeau was as anxious as a bull in heat to jump into. The tragic reality, however, is that a billion pretty words cannot by themselves change reality; the words only attain any meaning from the actions – or total lack thereof – that back them up. And so far, very few of those pretty words have attained any meaning and, for many of them, it appears to be little more than a cynical bait-and-switch.
