Welcome to the antidote to Canada’s massively-corrupt mainstream media

Will the REAL Thomas Mulcair PLEASE now show his true face?

By Henry McRandall

Evil Thomas Mulcair
It is sad but irrefutably true that the NDP – a once-proud “social-democratic” party built by and for poor and working-class Canadians – has shifted far to the right – or to the “centre”, as the disgruntled middle-class Liberals who’ve seized control of the party prefer to phrase it – over the past 25 years. But the betrayal and abandonment of the poor and the working class by the NDP has never been faster or more ruthless than under current leader Thomas Mulcair. Canada’s poor and working class could now suffer even more if the Mulcair NDP is elected on October 19, and here’s why:

Tory Rampage! Harper’s economic legacy (Part 1) – 8 consecutive deficits, rapid working-class impoverishment & massive enrichment of the Top1%

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COMEconomic Crisis
In his first official campaign event for Canada’s October 19 federal election, Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s nose grew significantly longer as he once again attempted to deceive Canadians by attempting to paint a rosy picture of his ten years of disastrous economic mismanagement and by attempting to scare voters away from voting for another party that might have some chance of bringing this second Harper Recession to an end before the masses get battered even more.
Harper has tried to frame the election around what he considers to be his strongest issues: “the economy” and “keeping Canadians safe.” Between now and October 19, we’ll be examining the sorry and sordid record of the Harper Conservatives on both of these issues – as well as others. And we’ll also look at the credentials – or lack thereof – of the other parties and their leaders to deliver the massive change that is urgently needed – not only in Canada but around the world.
Just what has the fiscal and economic legacy of these Conservative thugs been? Let’s take a look:

“Free trade” & “trickle-down economics” – the siamese twins of the most massive embezzlement in capitalism’s ugly history

By Henry McRandall
www.WRISEUP.COM
Eat the rich
It all started 36 years ago when Conservative Margaret Thatcher – “the Iron Bitch” – was elected prime minister of Great Britain, quickly followed by that lying buffoon Ronald Reagan as president of the U.S. in 1980 and braindead Brian Mulroney as prime minister of Canada in 1984 and – for the poor, for the working class and, now, even for much of the middle class in all three countries,it’s been all downhill ever since.
Simply put, NAFTA and all these other corporate-style, so-called “free trade” deals – combined with massive and non-stop tax cuts for the Top1% and the corporations they control and equally massive and non-stop real spending cuts on health, education and social programs desperately needed by the masses – have amounted to nothing more and nothing less than the most massive embezzlement in the entire 500-year history of corporate capitalism – aided and abetted by the self-seeking puppet political prostitutes of the Top1% in the legislatures across all three of these countries and, indeed, most of the world. And that was the entire goal and intent of the sadistic political and economic policies that have been to bear against the masses for far too long.

Tory Terror Fables: Harper’s security legacy (Part 1): Spying on citizens and urging people to fear their own shadows

By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM
False flag "terrorism" threatens North America.
One is torn between laughing and crying when a televised NHL hockey game is preceded by the playing of the U.S. national anthem and one watches these brainwashed sheep “patriotically” placing their hands over their hearts as the singer solemnly intones: “Home of the brave; land of the free.” How much “bravery” does it take to drop bombs on unarmed civilians from a fighter jet 35,000 feet above them or to mow people down with drones “piloted” from safe underground bunkers thousands of miles away? And how “free” is a country where grown men are afraid to watch TV in their own living rooms without a loaded gun right under the sofa?
The primary western military powers – the U.S. and the United Kingdom – and their various NATO lapdogs – including Canada – have been the primary instigators and beneficiaries of almost 15 years of progressively priming the pump of public paranoia with regard to a global terrorism threat that – whether fact or fiction – they themselves created and nurtured. There is not a single significant known terrorist entity in the world today that was not created, financed, trained and/or armed by Amerikkka and/or its “allies” – or “proxies” – both inside and outside of NATO. And what results have the U.S.-NATO zeal to “liberate” and “democratize” all those “less exceptional countries” wrought? Let’s take a look:

Will Black Lives ever really matter in a country built on genocide, greed and bigotry?

By Henry McRandall
www.WRISEUP.COM
African-American
As the unrestrained cop killings of unarmed citizens – mostly young men of colour and, in particular, young African-American men – continues unabated and unrestrained across Amerikkka, one must wonder if any lives other than the lives of Wealthy White Males will ever matter in a country founded on two genocides – the genocide against the millions of indigenous people who already occupied the so-called “New World” when the European settlers came to rape and pillage and loot these fat and fertile lands, and the genocide against Africans who were kidnapped in the millions and brought to this so-called “New World” to forever be slaves of the white male master class.
Right-wing white supremacists and other semi-literate, gun-toting girliemen might – in their state of exuberant brainwashing – may worship the United States Constitution that they mistakenly view as some kind of legislative manna from heaven. But if any of these manipulated nutbars could ever take the time to read the original, un-amended constitution they would see that the so-called Founding Fathers – and, yes, they were all wealthy white males – that the hate-filled lunatics worship never intended for the United States of America to be a democracy. It was their intention not only that the only people who could ever hold any public office but also even vote for the privileged few who could hold any public office would always be only wealthy white males.

Canada’s election race officially begins; but can the people possibly win at all?

By Henry McRandallCrass corporate capitalism
WRISEUP.COM
Canada’s despotic Conservative prime minister, Stephen Harper, officially launched the campaign for the October 19 federal election today and the question uppermost in my mind after hearing all five party leaders trot out their opening pitches is: Is there any way the Other99% can possibly win this “democratic” charade?
In announcing the “dropping of the writs”, Harper asserted that this election is about the economy and security and, as his nose grew longer, vowed that the extra six weeks of campaigning would not cost taxpayers a penny more. If I had a penny for every additional penny that it WILL absolutely cost taxpayers, I’d be at least $100 million richer on October 20. As for the Conservative clown’s deceitful claim about the economic stewardship his government has given the country over the course of his nine years in power, the reality is that, under Harper, the Canadian economy has careened from near-crisis to near-crisis, saved from disaster only by the relatively strict banking regulations put in place not by the Conservatives but by a previous Liberal government. And the irrefutable truth is that economic growth in Canada has been much slower under the Harper Conservatives than at any other time since 1960. And as for security, there was no credible terror threat in Canada before Stephen Harper and his cast of clowns came to power. It was Canada’s lapdog participation in the indiscriminate U.S./NATO of civilians and the demolition of vast residential areas of defenceless countries across much of the so-called Middle East and beyond that has made Canada a target of jihadist terrorists – as a simple connecting of the dots would readily show.

Greek Tragedy sires Greek Uprising, sires Greek Farce, and, finally, Greek Genocide

By Henry McRandall

The rich won't give an inch, so neither should the masses.
The rich won’t give an inch, so neither should the masses.

In the coming weeks and months, thousands of Greek citizens and residents will die prematurely as a corporate-capitalist “Axis of Evil” – the so-called “Troika” consisting of the European Central Bank, the Eurozone and the U.S.-controlled IMF (International Monetary Fund) – crushes the most vulnerable men, women and children of this southern European nation beneath its steel-toed jackboot as a warning to the entire world that the Top1% is not to be trifled with.
The Greek crisis is, to be certain, an unanticipated byproduct to a certain extent of years of lax tax enforcement by the Greek government. But, much more than that, it is the direct and deliberate product of an ongoing ploy by the world’s self-anointed money managers to bankrupt national governments around the world and place their necks of their nations under the heavy heel of the global “ownership class.”

Canadians to pay a massive price as despot Harper launches yet another election fraud

Democracy1By Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM
With just 78 days to go until the October 19 federal election mandated by law, Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper – the designer of the most corrupt and incompetent government in Canadian history – is preparing to further extend the cruel hoax of “prudent fiscal management” by unnecessarily wasting tens of millions of dollars more of taxpayer money by turning this year’s campaign into the longest Canadian election campaign in more than a century. Why? Simply because an extremely long campaign will give his Tory scumbags an enormous financial advantage over every other political party. In fact, it will ensure that the taxpayer subsidy of the Conservative party will continue to be much higher than the taxpayer subsidies for all the other parties combined.
What neither the puppet political prostitutes of the Top1% nor the presstitutes of the mainstream media will admit is that Canada’s entire electoral financing system is massively corrupt and deliberately designed to give right-wing parties an extreme financial advantage over any other party – and all at taxpayer expense. How does this work? Well, although current election laws supposedly place strict limits on how much any corporation – or any individual – can donate to a political party. But along with the phony limits on contributions, the legislation requires all parties and candidates to publish the names of all their contributors and the amount they contributed. And without any arm-twisting at all by the corporation, every employee hoping to go very far with that corporation knows that his or her employer will know exactly how much he or she contributed – and to which parties and/or candidates. Those who have demonstrated great loyalty to the company’s malevolent agenda can expect to be looked upon with favour by management. Those who have donated to other parties and candidates may quickly learn that they’ve now advanced as far as they are likely to advance within that corporation.

Canada’s never-ending Senate scandals may be the worst in the entire world

DemocracyBy Henry McRandall
WRISEUP.COM

Like the U.S. Senate, Canada’s Senate is supposed to be a chamber of “sober second thought,” charged with reviewing proposed federal legislation and promoting changes that might better serve the intent of the legislation. That, however, is where the similarity ends. In reality, it is nothing more and nothing less than a cesspool of unrestrained corruption and crime.
