NEB: Rubber-stamping pipelines and boasting about it

Posted December 10, 2014 by Boris

Hostile to the public interest. Conservative Party agent. Oil sector agent. In league with Satan. Pick your description, either the formerly respectable National Energy Board, which you pay for, will not help you understand and possibly object to an oi…

Obama – the guest from Hell

Posted November 25, 2014 by JR

Mathew Fisher:

There are ominous parallels in how U.S. President Barack Obama deliberately humiliated Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott … and how the American leader has kept Prime Minister Stephen Harper waiting at the altar for several years by withholding approval of the XL Keystone pipeline.

… Obama has cavalierly threatened close ties with two of the few countries the U.S. has always counted on when the world has gone berserk.

… Obama ignored the advice of his own embassy in Canberra that such a commentary would badly damage relations. Moreover, Obama failed to mention to Abbott his desire to deliver a speech in Australia during several long conversations that the two men had at the APEC leaders’ summit two weeks ago in Beijing.

…  Ignoring diplomatic protocol when visiting a friendly country, the White House refused to give its hosts a copy of the president’s speech or even a summary of what was in it.

What Obama did at the University of Queensland was intervene in this country’s often intense internal debate about climate change.

… the Abbott government was left fuming about their visitor’s insults

… Obama’s comments in Brisbane made a total nonsense of the White House’s stated intention …

the preaching and disloyaltyis immensely unhelpful at a time when China and India are ascendant, the Russian bear is marauding through Ukraine and threatening Georgia, Moldova, the Baltic states and Poland, and the Middle East is becoming an increasingly unpredictable cauldron of dysfunctional states.

Talk about guests from Hell!  Let’s face it, the man is a complete a**h*le, and a dangerous one at that.  Two more years is a long time to have a rogue American president on the loose.

Talking tough

Posted November 19, 2014 by Boris

The cupboardly man is talking tough regarding two regions of the world with the potential to blow-up. Ukraine-Russia and Israel-Palestine are flirting with major war and insurrection.

Our PM may think it is low risk to mouth-off to Putin or declare so…

Soft targets and red herrings

Posted November 17, 2014 by Boris

The mentally questionable individual who posed as a decorated jumper from the RCR is a soft target and irrelevant. The scorn presently being heaped on him from military circles is unsurprising, but Mr. Gervais is a red herring. Stephen Harper has worn …

Canada and Australia, alone in the world

Posted November 16, 2014 by Boris

G20 Summit lead-up, 2020

The world was not shocked today when the remaining G20 countries declined to extend meeting invitations to Canada and Australia over their stance on climate change. The intransigent position on fossil fuels taken by the nation…

The Ottawa attacks and ISIS: A strategy?

Posted October 23, 2014 by Boris

The following assumes ISIS is the motivator.

It is interesting that the attacks in St. Jean and Ottawa focussed exclusively on military and political targets, not specifically civilians (although two were apparently wounded yesterday). Three times (…

Canadian carbon bubble

Posted October 15, 2014 by Boris

Mark Carney, present Bank of England governor, former Bank of Canada governor thinks we’re in a fossil energy price bubble. If the world reaches a global climate deal, fossil fuel reserves are "unburnable" and therefore pretty much valueless. Indeed, divestment is already fast catching on.If this happens, the Tar Sands, Canada’s single economic bet, becomes nothing more than icky oily sand of use

Ethics

Harper’s politics of cynicism….

Posted September 7, 2014 by trashee

… and an empty shelf in the pantry where “ethics” used to be… Wandering around the Interweb, I found this cutting piece that brilliantly sums up the CPC modus operandi as follows: The Harper Government is a public relations oriented government. The machine seems to operate in the following manner; get the youngsters in the […]
