  • Ontario does not deserve a major league baseball franchise

    The case got thrown out of court. This surprises me, knowing the leftist inclinations of the Ontario courts.

    I have it from the Christie Blatchford comment on Tuesday's National Post. Judge Thomas McEwen seemed to throw a curve at the applicants. He asked this key question.

    What will the game look like if I grant this application?"

    They struck out on trying to answer. (Laughs).

    I left this a little too late unfortunately but I learn from the Globe and Mail that the Ontario Supreme Court Justice “denies bid” for the action by Mr. Cardinal. The person representing the baseball people, then mentioned the indigenous complainant as being in China at this time. He said the man could not suffer hurt seeing offending the logos there.

    It should be mentioned that there was a rebuttal that China mainstreams the baseball series. Hmm, fancy that.

    Something else I read another article was the type of plane the woman who accused him of groping her on wasn't flying in/out of NY at the time in the 80's

    It seemed puzzling to me at the onset of the allegations, that a simple thing was not discussed. Meticulous records are kept of passenger lists of planes. Surely this lady could have been asked by the rabid denizens of the media as to what flight was it?

    A smear is said to be often absolutely impossible to disprove. One of the times a smear does fall down is the time and place referred to. This if the person smeared just was not there.

    If Donald Trump had his flight records still to hand, he just might be able to flatten the rabid press. None of them would have the decency to retract statements. In any case the damage may have been done regardless. Such is the mentality of numbers of their viewers.

    I just heard a Hollywood actor, one Robert De Niro holding forth on Donald Trump. It was shown on not so dear old Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. They have been having hissy fits galore over this business.

    Now De Niro spewed forth a number of epithets about Donald Trump. I retorted to the television that ..... Oh well, fancy a Hollywood actor being offended by name calling. Then indulges in it himself. In addition to that, we are to suppose the male Hollywood actor fraternity treat women with respect. This on what is revealed about their swashbuckling and rampages with naïve and vulnerable females.

    Always something to learn on FR. I hit up Wikipedia and learn of the rock group "The Kinks". Seems that their ballads told of working class blues and the changing scene. The title was as you have stated. When I left London Town in 1955 Muswell Hill was considered rather posh. I understand it is still nice though.

    Curious how some people fitted in to old London Town many years ago. The Jewish and the Irish long established. I have heard some misgivings about other more recent dwellers though.

    The debate and it's participants show much of the difference between a liberal and a conservative in a microcosm. Just a classic example of the characteristics of both kinds of persons.

    The liberal absolutely not wanting to listen to a rational statement. Not keeping their own personal inner feelings to themselves. Making outlandish comparisons. The conservative attempting to politely state their points. A willingness to listen to the other side. Good manners included.

    He is politically incorrect and nothing they have tried reduces his popularity.

    I believe that the dread weapon of the media was and still is political correctness. I have a Canadian book titled "Gotcha". It exposes the beady eyes and listening ears of the press. How often has it been that an earnest decent person has made a slip of the tongue. Or indeed a statement taken out of context.

    The press has then swooped. Every time the reaction of the person slammed, was to grovel- even break into tears. Sorry, so sorry they would plead. The media circled the person like sharks smelling blood in the water.

    Donald Trump does not give a damn about them. Better still, he survives stronger than ever. He has proved their weapon fizzles like a damp firework.

    Vicente Fox has a paternal ancestry direct from Germany. His Gt. Grandfather was Louis Michel Fuchs, his wife was Catherina formerly Flach. Both came as immigrants to Cincinnati, Ohio. He was an accomplished maker of items in the livery trade. He opened up a business in Mexico City, in 1897.

    The name of Fuchs was changed to Fox. The Grandparents of this gentleman Vicente Fox were born in the USA. I would not think much of his chances of being where he is without this lineage.

    To build such an edifice as this needs a variety of trades and of course, labour. To come by the skills needed for some if not most trades, requires dedication to the work ethic.

    I suppose it would be impossible but a percentage indication of the backgrounds of the people employed would be interesting. If the architect/s were Caucasian that would be a case in point. It would be somewhat of a paradox if mostly Caucasians built that museum. I wonder about the electrical system......

    It may be proverbial "Scottish verdict" time. She skates, but never ever has a police job again.

    This statement takes me back in time living in England. In a murder trial in England it was "Guilty" or "Not Guilty." Scotland had these two alternatives as you will know but also "Not Proven". It meant the case could be revisited.

    I had an experience as a raw conscript soldier patrolling on guard duty at night. This on the Suez Canal. All alone. But for the bolt action on the 3.03 Lee Enfield which required three separate movements before firing, I could have shot someone once. Oh, well, not the place for these yarns really.

    For the record it is worthwhile to mention one of the greatest victories of the British Army. It was indeed General Kitchener who painstakingly waited while a railway line was constructed. This was from Egypt to the Sudan. The Dervish (forces of Islam) had killed Lord Gordon at Khartoum. They had chased the Egyptian army out of the Sudan. They had massacred six British Officers and thousands of Egyptian troops in 1883. The intention was to retake the Sudan.

    !898, the railway completed and the British gunboats coming down the Nile. The big standoff, at Omdurman. 20,000 fanatic Dervish horsemen ready to die for Allah. Facing the British troops plus an Egyptian brigade, also the Black African Sudanese soldiers.

    The Maxim, the Gatlin and Gardener machine guns at the ready. All American manufacture. Absolute slaughter. The Mahdi, their leader and also a prophet, slain with his counsellors. 11,000 horsemen sent to Allah. After the battle, Lord Kitchener stepped into a dreaded prison and ordered the release of the prisoners. Charles Neufeld was one , an Austrian captured when Gordon was killed.

    Excuse the history. Possibly the last time the forces of Islam came out in the open field.

    She won't be convicted.

    I hope you are right here. First of all this officer had no idea what this man might do. Next I will use the old axiom.

    Hindsight is better than foresight.

    I wonder what the law enforcement should do in this instance. If it was suspected a person was going to detonate an explosive device, reaching for something. If it was a device, the officer is a hero. If it was not. the officer is condemned. Most of the public aided and abetted by a corrupt and spite driven media fail to put themselves in the officer's shoes.

    A family that lost a great deal of their wealth in WWII and are now only minor layers but get hauled out when people need a boogieman to scare small children.

    I have to go with my own personal view of the Rothschilds. I must concede I have not done any research on the present status of this family. I know that in my native country, England simply that the name meant great wealth. Rothschild bankrolled England with funds to build the mighty Suez Canal. The French engineered it under De Lesseps. The poor Egyptian labourers slaved to complete it in 1867. The British guarded it.

    The real story of Downton Abbey is based on Almina, the illegitimate daughter of Baron Albert Rothschild. Her mother was Mina Wombwell, a married woman. Almina inherited huge wealth when her father died. She married into high society to Lord Carnarvon in 1895.

    Your post #85.

    Weren't religious charitable organizations the first ones responsible for bringing them in?

    I hope I am not remiss in mentioning the source for some quick research by me. I used a Breitbart article by Michael Patrick Leahy 2015. I will be as accurate as I can. Named are the Lutheran Church and Catholic Charity group. It seems- this is my own interpretation, that massive sums are then contributed by the government (taxpayer). The church groups siphon off as much as 25% for their administration.

    Now totally removed from this elsewhere is this. That a pastor of the Lutheran Church was found to have a sudden massive increase in his personal salary. If this is true, then at least it should be out there in public. No concern at all for the average member of the public, who then sees resources strained to the limit. Called racist if they even complain.

    Canada has very strict immigration requirements.

    I know as an immigrant myself to Canada that a medical exam or proof thereof is still compulsory. This is not needed for the much abused three months visitors visa though. I say much abused because thousands do not register on their exit after three months. I believe one has to be free of HIV etc. Previous criminal convictions may bar a person also.

    I do not take these people seriously. Still these statements make them feel good no doubt.

    Hopefully it might be realized that CBC does not represent "all Canadians". Formerly a good thing to have a commercial free network, it has now sadly deteriorated. I would use the Antonio Gramsci theory proposed many years ago. That being to control a country without a violent revolution believers gradually infiltrated a societies institutions.

    So openly corrupted has CBC become it is likely that the main figures do not even realize their own lack of integrity. We are now bombarded with a massive coverage of the American presidential election. Trump is the "hate figure". To me it is Orwellian in it's scope. When Stephen Harper the Conservative prime minister was defeated just over a year ago, their "hate figure" should have been gone. Even today they cannot let go re Harper. If it was not for the internet, there would be no voices raised. The print media has followed suit.

    Your statement.

    I'm not sure why Canada is giving them heroin instead of Methadone.

    First of all I am glad there was success with your relative in treatment. I did a bit of research and got the National Post of last March. Reference Tom Blackwell. Incredibly the number of Methadone patients in 1996 was 3000, in Ontario alone. To this date it is now 50 thousand. A health care worker stated that most patients use it to get a high.

    I will concede that I hadn't a clue about the statistics of drug use in Ontario. My own vice is 200 ml (7 ounces) of Wiser's Deluxe whisky once a week (chuckle). I absolutely do not condemn the addict, not walking in their shoes.

    From up Canada way, I understand the indignation and indeed anger about persons who are drug addicts. Society, by horror stories and indeed novels programmed generations to be repulsed by addiction, and blame the user.

    I am gratified that there could be at least some support for the authorities. They are just as anxious as are the average person to do something that works. The real culprits are those who smuggle drugs into our respective societies.

    I have just received my results for my DNA research from Luckily I do not have any qualms here. What gets to me is the elaborate procedures and various jump through the hoop paper work involved. All this to assure applicants of their utmost integrity in these matters. Even to the point of having a definite "no name, no family tree, private" indicator.

    Originally they did not have a Canadian address. They would only send the DNA kit to the USA, I gave them an address just across the border in Michigan. It is a convenient service for Canadians for a small fee. There are individual lock boxes there. I wanted the kit sent there. I phoned them in Utah about it and they were so hostile and interrogative, I hung up on them. Thought I was pulling something. Finally they got a Canadian outlet for Canadians to get the kit.

    Yes, if they lie about it (privacy) they deserve an end to their money tree.

    It is unfortunate that Kellie Lietch did not take a leaf from Donald Trump's book. Once again the politically correct ninnies have brought someone to tears and abject apologies. Kellie could have told them politely to “jump in the lake” or a similar riposte. After all entry to Canada by undocumented persons is not all that easy without some scrutiny. The catch is that whether the authority will act on a questionable entrant. The machinery is in place. Where I live at the Ontario/Michigan border, persons are turned back to the United States -if the border security deems it necessary.

    Again and again Conservatives make the mistake of backing up and apologizing. Then they are victim to the sharks circling the waters. The enemies of freedom are the politically correct brigade.

    This was a popular war, driven partly by the popular desire to avenge the death of General Gordon at Khartoum.

    As you will know, but had to put in a little history here for others. The British did not wish to be cut off in the desert without water for their expedition. A railway was gradually built from Egypt to the Sudan. fanatics of Islam did not realise it's strategic value. It had water tankers and supplies easily transported.

    Finally came the stand off. 20,000 crazed horsemen willing to die for Allah. The British lines at Omdurman holding with some Egyptian troops, plus the black Sudanese troops. On they came. The British had the Maxim, the Gatlin and the Gardner machine guns all American manufacture. About 11,000 horsemen died and never reached the bayonets of their enemy.

    The Khalifa (Mahdist leader) retreated with his ministers and waited on his blanket for his doom. The Sudan went back to Egyptian control. Had those troops lost they would have been massacred to a man. Which happened to 10,000 Egyptian troops in the Sudan under Sir Michael Hicks in 1883. Two observers survived. They were Austrian. Finally escaped from Islam after many years.

    Just a passing observation here. I wonder if the incessant barrage of putting down America by the left as an effect? It sometimes seems that certain of these people including some of the academic crowd bad mouth America.

    If pride and honour with love for a country is taught, then it should act as a bulwark against treason. Love for one's country does not mean in a democracy, that one cannot criticise it's faults. Could the guilt lie with much of the left?

    To digress- we just learn in Strathroy, Ontario, a youth has died. He was intercepted by the RCMP with a homemade bomb in his vehicle. He was a Isis convert. Old stock Canadian. The FBI tipped off the RCMP. They were doing surveillance, otherwise he might have been successful. Material showed radicalization and desire to blow up Canadians.

    From up Canada way I am reminded of the devastating effect of a false poll years ago. It took place on the East Coast. A phoney polling company was created and three days before the polls opened it forecast a big win for a Leftist party. It worked because the undecided were said to have wanted to get in on the winning side.

    The Bandwagon Effect.

    I would not put it past the recent polls, knowing the panic that a Donald Trump victory would cause certain people.

    Just my opinion only, but I have to go on my gut instinct and first impressions. I concede I do not have any direct evidence to back this up.

    This man Khan is a bully. He is one who does not tolerate dissent ion. He seems like an abuser. I would not like to be in front of such a man as a subordinate. He has inner demons. (JMHO).

  • Hillary: You know, Trump wants you all to be full of hate and fear

    The press- the MSM, seem as a one way propaganda machine against Donald Trump. Coupled with this, a juggernaut trying to drive Hillary Clinton to power. Glanced at "The View" today and there was Joy Behar et al. Sheer unabashed shilling for Hillary.

    The Canadian monoliths CTV and CBC are obsessed with the America presidential election. All the time banging away at Donald Trump and giving Hillary Clinton their benevolent wishes. There surely should be some fatigue for viewers by now.

    It might be appropriate at this time to remember this man.

    Daniel James White 1946-1985.

    He was a policeman, a firefighter and veteran. He served in the Vietnam war and was in the 101st Airborne. He had demonstrated compassion and decency as a police officer. He stood out as one who went against police excesses. He resigned his job which was a lucrative one on principle. He then found making a living was extremely hard to bring in al living wage.

    He then asked for his old job back. It took a lot for his pride to do that. The "gays" actively sabotaged his re hiring. It is said that the authority was willing to let things pass and re hire him.

    The spiteful merchants of human rights and compassion, mixed with tolerance, cut the feet right under him. He then lost it and murdered the two men he thought responsible.Had the "gays" shown some human decency, this tragedy would never have happened.

    This article from the Canada Free Press (because without America, there is no free world) gives me a chance to digress. The constant barrage from the two Canadian monoliths in television went beyond mere news. Again and again the well known figures were concealing quite their gloating. This as Mrs. Trump was juxtaposed with Mrs. Obama. One has to be well versed in their tones and meaningful glances.

    To cap it all and I quickly turned off the radio and CBC Radio One, there was sweet Carol Off. She was interviewing someone Stateside about the ramifications of the speech by Mrs. Trump.

    The two Canadian television news outlets seem to be nothing but shills against Donald Trump. None of their business anyway.

    Liberals have destroyed Hollywood and this is clearly reflected by the declining number of people attending the trash they put out.

    I hope that the declining numbers of cinema goes is a true fact. I have to humour my spouse (bless her) and go to a movie. This is about twice a month.

    Now the only choice of six movies locally was a movie called "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates". I am not easily shocked and am not prudish. My quick summation of it is that it shows what an older generation would call perversion. If, what is shown in that movie is accepted as a "norm", they (perverts) may have won. It not that, then they are winning.

    I cannot believe Canadians voted for this nonsense again. fwiw

    Figures were 39% Liberal. 30% Conservative. 22% NDP 9% others. Canadians cannot vote head to head for a Prime Minister. He only appears on his district/riding ballot. Justine Trudeau in suburb of Montreal.

    Sault Saint. Marie Ontario and Sault Sainte Marie Michigan one of the friendliest neighbour relationships in North America. Mind yer manners and get treated very well on both sides of the border.

    Excuse the sermon. Reminds me of the hard scrabble years post war England. We saw Hollywood films and thought all Americans had a beautiful mansion with a glamorous women walking down at staircase. Or in other locations spoke like the Bowery Boys. Maybe some Americans think we are all like the ones portrayed here. (laughs
