ConCalls: Commish Waves White Flag in #RoboCon #elxnfraud Investigation

Despite audio evidence of widespread illegal robocalls, the Commissioner of Elections Canada has announced “no offenses committed”!

Canadians have had a heaping helping of obvious crime going unpunished, where Conservatives are the apparent benefactors.

I sadly predicted this ludicrous situation with a satirical piece I wrote last year that many people mistook for reality.

Among the bewildering improbable findings by the Commish are this:
“It is useful to note, moreover, that the data gathered in the investigation does not lend support to the existence of a conspiracy or conspiracies to interfere with the voting process (see, for example, sections 1.3 and 4.3).”

A Federal Court Judge ruled the opposite! He found fraud was likely in multiple ridings, which as we know from the highly “secure” CIMS database, requires CPC HQ authorization to be available in multiple ridings. Local staff do not have access to riding information elsewhere in the country, so there would have to be a conspiracy for identical fraud to be happening in more than one riding, as the Federal Court ruled.

Also this from Andrew Coyne:

Someone, that is, committed massive electoral fraud, in a way that could only benefit the Conservative party and making use of proprietary party information. But they did it without the party’s knowledge or participation.

Or what else can one conclude from Thursday’s ruling by Federal Court Judge Richard Mosley

Apparently Elections Canada can conclude what they did after 2008′s malicious robocalls in the S-GI riding of B.C., and drop the whole thing because investigations are harrrrd.

PMO: RCMP is Deeply Offended You’re Not Buying Their Crap

“Come on!” – RCMP

The Canadian people know when they’re being fed smoke and mirrors, and things taste very smoky and shiny right now.

“Thanks to the RCMP, we know that senior officials in our government were conspiring to cover up tens of thousands of dollars in (seemingly) improper payments to senators. The internal emails and interview transcripts published by the RCMP show Wright, Duffy and a host of lawyers and senators doing all kinds of things they would never do if they didn’t think they could keep it secret.”

“The way our legal system is set up, we will never know why the Mounties decided not to proceed unless it comes out in court if the force proceeds with charges against Mike Duffy, which is expected in the coming weeks. But it’s up to politicians, not police or judges, to tell us how it is that the prime minister’s chief of staff is able to make a secret payment to a sitting legislator without facing criminal prosecution.

There is no way that should be legal.”

Brothers in Weyburn

Then this:

The so called Temporary Foreign Workers program is little better than indentured servitude. That’s a form of slavery, where the employer holds an unreasonable level of power over their workers, so the workers will not stand up for their human rights.

Ask yourself it’s a coincidence that the people in Weyburn as TFWs stayed on the job after the “restructuring”, but the long term, Canadian, employees were unable to for whatever reason(s). The reason(s) made them so embittered, they contacted the media to shame their former bosses, ending any hope of going back to work for them.

P.S. I’m hoping for a better, feel-good story out of Weyburn soon to counteract the complete nonsense it’s putting out lately.

ADDED: You can’t believe what Jason Kenney says, he’s a liar. RBC never faced fraud charges for their TFW nonsense.

Flickering: Foretelling Crisis in an Ecosystem

Originally posted on Nourish Boston:

In a recent study, published in Nature, a group of scientists have pioneered a method to predict when an ecosystem is likely to collapse. By utilizing samples collected from a particular ecosystem and applying their mathematical model to recognize fluctuations in the health of an ecosystem, the tipping point and eventual collapse (or recovery) of an ecosystem can be predicted. 

The study posits that ecosystems will ‘wobble’ or ‘flicker’ back and forth between alternative states of recovery and crisis in response to relatively large external impacts before a critical transition, or tipping point.

Scientists applied their theory to a real world scenario—the environmental collapse of Lake Erhai in Yunnan Province, China. They collected sediment samples of the lake and graphed and analyzed the levels of fossilized algae over a 125-year period as a measure of the lake’s health. 

From this data, they extrapolated that the algae communities remained stable…

Canada Coaching Countries to Waste Water

Canada, a decade ago, used to do more good than bad in the wider world. Now we’re an international wrecking crew, teaching countries how to waste their water supplies on international disasters like shale oil.

This sort of unproductive activity is also changing our climate. It’s also slowing investment in renewable energy technologies that don’t pollute and consume water or air.
