Follow-up to the Frank Graves so-called “controversy”…

The Harperites have scaled up their attacks against the CBC and the remarks made by EKOS President, Frank Graves.

“Make no mistake, we will continue to challenge Frank Graves’s credibility as a neutral pollster on party politics,” the Conservative Party says in a memo circulated to MPs and supporters.

“The public broadcaster is spending the public’s money, not Liberal Party money,” the memo says. “If the CBC is serious about reversing its declining status and influence within the Canadian population we recommend that they re-consider their position.

“At the very least Mr. Graves’s partisanship should be disclosed to viewers each and every time he appears on-air.”

What a bunch of clap-trap! Like I said in my post yesterday, of COURSE he’s biased! We ALL are! He is markedly less biased than most because of his job!

A good article in the G&M this morning notes that:

…They forget, for example, that the CBC has hired Kory Teneycke, the former director of communications to the Prime Minister, who is now being paid with taxpayer dollars to tout the Tory line and do Mr. Harper’s bidding.

The Reformatories, boys and girls, are practising what you might call hypocritical cherry-picking!

If the Cons are holding on to the “how dare you suggest that a wedge be driven into the country, thus dividing it”  call…

Dean Del Mastro, the Peterborough Conservative MP and parliamentary secretary to the Heritage Minister, had been pushing for the probe. He was outraged over Mr. Graves’s “culture war” comments, believing the pollster was driving a wedge between east and west after Conservatives have worked so hard to unify the country.

…then they need to look in the mirror a little more often! No Prime Minister since Trudeau (who I admire, but face it – he did pit east against west) has sought to divide this country more than Harper! West versus East, secular versus non-secular, rural versus urban… you name the schism and Harpy is there dancing merrily over it! Factional splits are seen as opportunities for the ever-cynical Harperites.

Look no further than the gun registry – a tool that needs some improvements but is a useful database that is used by police forces across the country. But for the Cons, it is more useful to exploit the registry for political purposes… ignoring its benefits.

If the argument that the ReformCons are hitching their donkeys to is the use of public funds for partisan purposes, then what about these?

But for me, the most enjoyable thing is a journey through ReformCon blog-land or a perusal of random comments on main stream media stories. Here’s a sampling:

From the Globe and Mail story:

The Party needs to reign in the CBC. It is primarily staffed by Socialists and Bolsheviks who are trying to undermine the State. If they won’t change their ways they should be brought in front of a government tribunal and made to explain themselves.

Hmmm… I wonder if there is someone named Lenin on the payroll…

If Harper was a genuine small-c fiscal conservative he would immediately begin to eradicate the deficit/debt by changing this embarrassment to a private pay for view station, sell the complete far-left bias and extremely unbalanced CBC and force the bimbos to get a real job, or simply shut down this bimbo-driven humiliation to humanity.

Bimbos? really?

Complain about grit hack frank graves

Senator Findlay wants us all to complain to the CBC about biased liberal hack frank graves. I have already written to the cbc ombudsman. I already give the maximum, I can  to the party. I urge you all to write to the cbc ombudsman and donate money to the Tories. Let’s teach the cbc, and the liberal hack frank graves, a lesson. I also urge you not to answer ekos when they attempt to contact you. We should boycott this liberal front organization.

From onwardjames.blogspot.com

There are times I think that we should have our version of the Tea Party, — a start with Ontario with manipulative Liberal Dalton McGuinty — however, I believe that Prime Minister Harper, perhaps the best Prime Minister in the history of Canada, considering the times and events, has done a superb job with notable ministers behind him for a UNITED CANADA.

You get the picture.

Supporters of the ReformCons like to pile on like a bunch of brain-starved zombies whenever they feel like they are being unfairly treated or portrayed!

And they call we lefties overly sensitive?

And here’s the kicker: over at a post called Inconvenient facts always ruin an attempted narrative at Scott’s Diatribes, the author cites a Tweet from Glen McGregor:

By my math, since CPC formed government, “Liberal partisan” pollster Frank Graves has done $5,657,710 in work for Harper govt.

Followed by:

Also, EKOS has done two polling contacts worth $131,440 for Privy Council Office under Harper.

Glen muses he perhaps should do a story on that in his paper. I really hope he does, to get it out there to a wider audience what a silly thing this attempted line of attack is. Sometimes, facts can be very inconvenient when you’re trying to push out propaganda.

Maybe now is the time for an election… gotta remove the DeceptiCons (Hey! I just made that up!) and their lemming-like minions from any position of power before they destroy all that has made Canada a great country over the past 140+ years!

American columnist suggests that the U.S. military might overthrow Obama

Once again, the U.S. right-wing nuts are proving themselves to being even wackier than previously thought. How far can these guys go?

Check this out – from “Newsmax“… an American pseudo-media outlet that seems to have, as its sole raison d’être, the demeaning and humiliation of the President and any policy he has ever been a part of.

I must note, however, that this article has disappeared from the site. Apparently even the fascists at Newsmax couldn’t stomach what this moron was writing.

Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention

By: John L. Perry

There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.

America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:

# Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”

# Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.

# They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.

# They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.

# They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.

# They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.

# They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.

# They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.

So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?

Wait until this president bungles into losing the war in Afghanistan, and Pakistan’s arsenal of nuclear bombs falls into the hands of militant Islam?

Wait until Israel is forced to launch air strikes on Iran’s nuclear-bomb plants, and the Middle East explodes, destabilizing or subjugating the Free World?

What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, “I’m not interested in victory”) that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?

Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership is lost in a fool’s fog.

Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”

In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.
