Why did men riding Greyhound bus not rush and overcome killer who beheaded fellow passenger?

Aug 3, 2008 — Judi McLeod

The Canadian beheading-on-the-bus story is as mysterious as it is horrifying.

Imagine a young man on the long road home, snoozing, lulled by his earphones as the Greyhound bus lumbers along remote roads through the Canadian Prairies.

  Unspeakable as events were, it was to take two days before the story was carried by the mainstream media.


Want to break through China’s Olympics censorship?  Falun Gong’s got the roadmap

Aug 1, 2008 — Judi McLeod

Beijing OlympicsWith a defiant China standing firm on Internet censorship, one tiny group is standing tall against them.  Even as China was hitting back at the United States over human rights criticism yesterday, The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) was writing a detailed guide, a how-to booklet with a map to some of China’s most prominent gulags of despair.

According to CIPFG, not only do these “hellholes” exist—but also some are located within mere miles of Olympic venues.

The booklet, released yesterday shows the 20,000 international journalists expected to cover the Aug.8-24 games, a detailed guide to detention facilities known for their severe abuse of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience.


ABC gives platforms to megalomaniacs

Jul 30, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageJust like some U.S. presidential wanabees, Osama bin Laden is a megalomaniac.

The al Qaeda leader, who was to go on and cause carnage at two U.S. embassies within two months, wanted to meet the American public via an ABC Television interview.

  If the specter of bin Laden, the ABC television star isn’t enough, former ABC correspondent John Miller, testifying at the first Guantanamo war crimes trial, also recalled comparing bin Laden with U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt as he made small talk during filming of the May 28, 1998, interview at an Afghanistan mountain hideout.


Debut of the pint-sized Climate Nazis

Jul 30, 2008 — Judi McLeod

image It’s mid-summer and global warming alarmists are going right into the tree house to recruit your children to their never-ending, the-sky-is-falling cause.

  This time it’s the well-paid bureaucrats at one of Britain’s biggest utility corporations.

  Launched in the weekend papers, full colour ads by “Britain’s brightest energy company,” npower, urges vacationing school children to sign up as “climate cops”.

  By now your bored-with-summer, freckle-faced, 9-year-old Tom Sawyer of the ‘hood could be keeping a secret file on your environmental sins.

“In a luridly-designed website, mimicking the style of “yoof” cartoons, it offers a bundle of downloads, including a pack of “climate crime cards”, urging its recruits to spy on families, friends and relatives, inviting each of them to build up a “climate crime case file” in order to help them ensure their putative criminals do not “commit those crimes again (or else!)!” (eureferendum.blogspot.com, July 27, 2008.)


Internet photo album of America’s new First Family

Jul 25, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageSome people might ask, “How come we haven’t seen or known about these pictures before?”

The original source of the photos is unknown but they were passed on by Poland-based journalist and CFP columnist David Dastych.  This photo album of what could in November 2008 be America’s new First Family, which may not have been printed anywhere in the mainstream media, is being posted here for the approximate two hundred million Americans who have Internet Access.


The skeleton in Obama’s money closet

Jul 24, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageRobert Wolf, CEO of UBS Americas, who has bundled more than $370,850 for Barack Obama so far this year, is one of the most embarrassing skeletons in BO’s money closet, now that the financial institution Wolf heads up in America has been outed in The Nation’s Attack of the Global Pirate Bankers.

  “…This crowded docket, combined with the UBS mea culpa, almost distracted us from the sordid details of the Levin Committee’s actual findings,” investigative journalist James S. Henry, wrote in The Nation on Tuesday.

  It’s not as if Wolf is just another number in the contribution side of the ledger paying for Obama’s race to the White House.

  Among the groupies pushing Obama’s rock star-status, Wolf stands at the front of the line.


The Day Canada Free Press dumped Michael Savage

Jul 24, 2008 — Judi McLeod

Jumping to the defense of nationally syndicated radio giant Michael Savage for standing by his criticism of the autism “racket”, yesterday WorldNetDaily (WND) wrote that the autism controversy was “sparked by a left-leaning media watchdog’s campaign against him.”

Wrong.

No one other than a loose-tongued Michael Savage sparked the autism controversy.


Movie Director throws spotlight on terrorist training camps in Target Practice

Jul 23, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageThe military compounds training terrorists on American and Canadian soil, that everyone talks about but no one seems to do much about, has made it to the silver screen. 

  There is no doubt that director Richmond Riedel’s realistic film, Target Practice takes you there.

  Starring in a timely topic, Target Practice gives new meaning to the description of art imitating real life.

  Fast-paced and intense, the film has the distinction of premiering in two high-profile film festivals in the Los Angeles area on the same night.

  On Friday, July 25, Target Practice premiers at the 11th Annual Dances With Films Independent Film Festival (DWF). Ditto for the 4th Annual Action On Film International Film Festival (AOF).


Pawprints of Katrina will leave pawprints on your heart

Jul 19, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageThe shrieking winds of Hurricane Katrina could never drown out the frightened cries of thousands of animals left behind by human companions given no choice about taking their pets during evacuation. 

  It’s will go down as a kind of poetic justice that the happy barks and deep purrs of rescued dogs and cats are contained within the pages of Cathy Scott’s Pawprints of Katrina: Pets Saved and Lessons Learned.


When the fraudster lives at home

Jul 19, 2008 — Judi McLeod

In the dark world of crime, we attribute fraud to strangers, naturally assuming we are safe from our own relatives.

Not locking the door on our blood relatives puts an in-house fraudster in an advantageous environment.


Putting the Focus back where it belongs

Jul 18, 2008 — Judi McLeod

  “The focus must be placed on Prai de Luz.  I hope the test results put the focus back on Maddie,” said the email that reached Canada Free Press (CFP) this morning.
  Had anybody but Danie Krugel sent the email, I would not have got the jolt of adrenalin upon reading it.

  Former South African police superintendent Danie Krugel has been quietly working on the Maddie case—with the consent of her parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, using the Matter Oriented System (MOS) equipment he has developed.

The New Yorker’s cartoon, El Rushbo style

Jul 16, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageThere’s a great picture of Rush Limbaugh standing over the New Yorker cartoon of the Obamas in the Oval Office up on the Rush Limbaugh website today.  El Rushbo is standing in front of the cartoon, holding a paintbrush and a palette.

  It’s not that radio’s Rush is a closet Leonardo da Vinci.  This is how near-sighted Liberals see it.  According to the Libs and their fellow travelers in the Drive-By Media, the cartoon, which was really poking fun of paranoid Americans against Obama, would have achieved its point better had only Rush been the artist.

Had the radio giant been the cartoonist depicting how Americans see who is arguably the most inexperienced candidate for president in history and his Mrs., he would have got it right on the money.


Released CSIS video stars Omar Khadr, the Victim

Jul 15, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageStarring on the World Wide Web today is Omar Khadr, in video showing the then 16-year-old being interviewed by CSIS agents at Guantanamo Bay in February, 2003.

  Portrayed all along by the mainstream media as a “child soldier” and on Nov. 19, 2007 in a CBS newscast as an “obedient son”, in today’s video, Khadr is a weeping victim whose trust was betrayed by Canadians he thought had come to rescue him.

“Promise you’ll protect me from the Americans,” Khadr told his Canadian visitors.


“Baby-faced” bin Laden boy’s bar mitzvah debut on World Web

Jul 9, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageIt is only the British tabloids that could describe Osama bin Laden’s infidel-hating son, Hamza, as a poet.

  “THIS (emphasis, The Sun’s) is Osama Bin (sic) Laden’s school-age son, who yesterday continued his father’s mission of hate—with a POEM (emphasis The Sun’s) begging for Britain to be destroyed.”

(Simon Hughes, Chief Investigative Reporter, The Sun, July 8, 2008).

  Noting that the 16-year-old son of the world’s most wanted terrorist was “baby-faced”, The Sun pointed out that he has already been dubbed, the “Crown Prince of Terror”.

  In his message to wannabe terrorists, bin Laden Jr. wants to “Accelerate the destruction of America, Britain, France and Denmark.”


Is Saddam’s “yellowcake” safe in Montreal?

Jul 8, 2008 — Judi McLeod

image The US military’s painstaking trail of getting 550 metric tons of “yellowcake” out of Iraq across two oceans to its final Canadian destination may not have considered that Montreal is a leading centre for Islamist and Jihadists groups in North America.

  The booty, described as “the last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program” arrived in Montreal on the July 4th weekend, where it will remain until Fall.

  The military operation to remove the massive amount of concentrated natural uranium from the former Tuwaitha nuclear complex about 12 miles (19 kilometers south of Baghdad) was utterly hush hush.


Radio’s Laurie Roth gives us something to believe in

Jul 7, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageThey call her `Annie Oakley of the Airwaves’, but I think Conservative talk show host Dr. Laurie Roth is more like The Unsinkable Molly Brown, reputed to have rowed for seven and a half hours straight saving herself and her passengers in Lifeboat No. 6 escaping the sinking of the Titanic off the coast of Newfoundland.

  Some historians swear that Molly is more legend than real.

  Dr. Laurie Roth is a real legend, a legend of our times.

  Some radio talk show hosts get you thinking, some provoke you and make you angry. Roth gets you believing that nothing’s impossible if you only try.  She gets you believing in yourself and proves the mighty power of one.


Mother Earth as Wicked Witch

Jul 6, 2008 — Judi McLeod

Mothers of the past, who blamed Russia for climate change were right, it is the Communists behind Climate Change.

According to Communist flagship Pravda, “Earth begins to kill people for changing its climate”.

Casting Earth in a retaliatory role is only the latest chapter in the ongoing drama called Global Warming.

Earth is portrayed as the mother of wicked witches on Pravda’s front page


Colombian hostage rescue story needs perfect ending

Jul 3, 2008 — Judi McLeod

imageThe daring rescue of 15 hostages in Colombian jungles yesterday was breathtaking in its execution.

  The leftist guerillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) were tricked into handing the hostages over by Colombian military intelligence agents without a single shot being fired.  When it was over, 58 guerillas were able to escape back into the jungle in the hopes some 700 hostages still held would be set free.


It’s checkmate for FARC in hostage freeing ‘Operation Jaque’

Jul 2, 2008 — Judi McLeod

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe made it official in a dramatic announcement to the world this afternoon: 15 hostages were freed by military spies from The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in Operation Jaque.

Ingrid Betancourt and three U.S. military contractors were among the hostages freed after military spies tricked rebels into giving them up without a single shot fired.
