I am brainwashed. You are brainwashed. We are brainwashed.


by Robin Mathews, December, 2017

Vast numbers of people (many more than we think, probably) are aware of a major, constant process by ‘Established power’, by the Mainstream Press and Media, by ‘Imperial Globalization’, by the Deep State, [there are more names] to blanket the population in misinformation, ‘disinformation’, misleading reporting, half-finished news and misanalysis of events   to use, in effect, a continuing blanket of propaganda to assure we do not know the truth about the world around us and to make us feel we are the enemies of perfectly self-respecting countries attempting to live peaceful lives .

Being aware is one thing.  Seeing through the propaganda is another  and there are not many who can (consistently) do it “which is what all the named forces above intend.  None of us gets  and stays  free.  That’s why the title of this column.  We all know we are being brainwashed.  But until we replace the present power structure/power system we will not be able to prevent what is being done to us  constantly, daily, intentionally, internationally.

Occasionally (with us all) a light shines in and reveals an insight, a small revelation  (or a large one). That makes the propaganda process clearer and its magnitude more evident.

Take the on-going repetition of (false) terrorist events in Western countries.  They are alleged to be produced by government-connected forces (alleged, that is, by non-official, independent investigators constantly at work). The investigators (most know) are almost all authentic, serious, responsible, even scholarly people concerned about the health of the community.  They toil away gratis for the good of the community.  Continuous accusations are made that those well informed researchers and critics of sensationally staged (Islamic?) terrorist events are Conspiracy Theorists who besmirch and ridicule the noble and selfless work of our official defenders.  But more and more people are less and less sure that the so-called Conspiracy Theorists are wrong.

Since the Cenotaph-and-after terrorist event in Ottawa on October 22, 2014, for instance, a number of researchers (I think of Graeme MacQueen and Barrie Zwicker) have brought telling arguments of a False Flag event created by shadow Canadian State operatives to hoodwink the nation and the world.  (Once again, a single, semi-insane ˜terrorist’ was killed before any testimony could be gathered from him.) So far the argument for the Ottawa terrorist event as fraudulent can’t be proved absolutely.  But we have one crystal-clear example of a Canadian False Flag: the wholly fraudulent Islamic terrorist event at Victoria, B.C., July 1, 2013.

Think of how much secret organization and how much deciding to do criminal things had to go on in order to create the terrorist event in Victoria.

Justice Catherine Bruce  judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia (on the case)  was applied to for corrective action after sitting through the jury trial (that found the two converts to Islam guilty). Justice Bruce had observed much. She struck down the terrorist conviction against the two socially challenged converts to Islam  and unveiled the judgement that the RCMP (and by implication the federal Conservative government) was planner, initiator, and controller of the whole elaborate sham “ using more than 200 RCMP and millions of dollars of unsuspecting taxpayers’ dollars.  Since the replacement of the Conservative government by a Liberal one, cover-up of the event continues, the Liberal cabinet refuses to discuss a Public Inquiry of the RCMP and an Appeal against the Justice Bruce decision is to take place in the B.C. Appeals Court on January 18, 2018. 

No one was killed or maimed in that ˜operation’ but innocent Canadians were jailed, charged, misused  and if the Crown wins the Appeal against the judgement by Justice Bruce, the two accused “ declared innocent by Madam Justice Bruce - can go back to jail and serve life sentences!

Historically the public-spirited investigators constantly at work (for no pay) started investigation of what might be called False Flag activity at a time when the hand of the evil U.S. government and/or Deep State could (almost) be plainly seen.  The assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963; the Gulf of Tonkin faked ship battle in August, 1964, (to provide reason to intensify the War in Viet Nam); the assassination of Martin Luther King on April 4, 1968 brought an intense focus on U.S. government (˜Deep State’) criminality in the U.S.A.

It was when the unconvincingly explained murder of leading personalities in the U.S.A. began to be evident that the False Flag investigative process appears to have gone into high gear. Since the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy up to and including the most recent multi-Western nation terrorist events (still carried out mostly by apparently demented and “ usually-single-acting madmen who are almost always shot dead on the spot making live testimony from them impossible to gain) the number of terrorist events has blossomed  and the propaganda flowing from them has been imprinted over and over and over on the minds of Western populations.

Almost always, ISIS (the demonic, savage, heartless, brutal, and mostly invisible organization) ˜claims’ responsibility from  somewhere. Thus Islamic evil is established.

The pattern is relentless.  Almost always innocent people are killed or maimed, revealing the brutal heartlessness of the perpetrators.  But  pause.  Pull back.  Think a minute.

Surely if there is a powerful, designing force with tentacles into every Western country  through actual contact people or by wickedly-created terrorist-electronic-contact networks “ and is a force with considerable power and influence (and doubtless money)  wouldn’t it make something else happen  as well?

Wouldn’t that force, that evil organization, that unwearying actor on the world stage be able to enlist a few other people than the nut-case truck-drivers and the single shoot-out madmen we have been asked to accept?  And  (I suppose what I write next is sort-of kindergarten stuff) “ surely the evil organization could pick a few more telling targets than random gatherings of innocent citizens.  If the evil force wanted to make the point that it is the enemy of all those who are daily making war against Islamic peoples  wouldn’t it (at least now and then?) pick off a significant political operative, a known intelligence/military person, a major public figure involved in the damnation of Islam?  Surely “even if very rarely“ wouldn’t it drive one of those trucks into a significant store of weaponry, or a meaningful chemical factory  or  even just a significant anti-Islamic institution?

Now that I’ve said it  mustn’t it strike every thoughtful ordinary person in the Western World as very, very strange that the cruel, wicked, barbaric, brutal Islamic fighters (working in the West) have never targeted a single, meaningful actor contributing to the War Against Islam?  If that were to happen, ordinary people in the West wouldn’t be thunderstruck. They would think “ ˜yes yes, that makes sense: tit for tat’.  Maybe that’s one of the reasons it doesn’t happen. (That doesn’t mean any sane person would want any terrorist brutality.)

The failure of ISIS (or whatever organizations detest the war-making West) ever to undertake attacks on centrally responsible persons in the West leads one to believe that the attacks are not undertaken by Islamic sources at all  and are connected to Islam only through the propaganda channels of Western power and its Deep State.  The actual perpetrators of the brutalities visited upon innocent, ordinary people in Western countries might just be part of a force within those countries perpetrating acts of brutality against ordinary people to BRAINWASH whole populations in order to make them learn to despise those who are ACCUSED of the brutalities.

People in Western countries will protest.  Surely no force in Western democracies, they will say, would be permitted to violate groups of the wholly innocent, killing and maiming many for propaganda purposes!  But pause again  and think. Isn’t that precisely what the Western perpetrators of the brutalities against innocent people would depend upon “the essential decency of Western World citizens who wouldn’t believe the cause could possibly be found inside their own democratic countries?

The perpetrators would depend upon that good faith of citizens and would feed that good faith from controlled government sources, from controlled press and media, from lavishly supplied eye-witnesses to the events, from consenting elected representatives who are bought actors or misled innocents who will always mouth the appropriate propaganda phrases.

Looking at the bloodstained sidewalks and the blood-splattered market stalls where innocents have been brutalized, concerned citizens do ask: WHY THEM?  They do not ordinarily ask: Why not, instead, visible perpetrators of violence against Islam? or How come a person visibly responsible for the endless carnage in the Middle East is never picked off by a terrorist or a terrorist group?

Is it possible we don’t ask those questions because we have been indoctrinated, manipulated, brainwashed, taught to believe those questions don’t even exist, or may not be asked, or that only madmen and madwomen would ask them? When we think through the meaning of the state of mind we are in are we looking at what it is to be brainwashed ? And if we are what do we do about it?

BC Liberals cook the books: In one year BC Hydro customer base went from 1.9 in 2014 to 4 million in 2015?

Amazing isn't it that there can be a 2.1 million increase over one year in new customers to BC Hydro statistics from 2014 to 2015 and the 95% ! dot depicting a pac man pie remains the same ! ! ! !

Translink Station Escalator Alerts: Incapable of working as stairs?

Mandatory servicing may be a valid reason for what appears as an ever ongoing shut down of the escalators at various Skytrain stations, but why is it that Waterfront Station outage is listed under Sapperton Station?
Does the Sapperton Station even have an escalator, let alone one that is indeed out of service?

At the REAL Waterfront Station there are two escalators going down (northbound) and two escalators going up (southbound) and in yesterdays instance the Southbound Left escalator of two was out for the Mandatory Maintenance without a worker in sight.

There we were backed almost to the vessel we had just departed waiting for access to the one working escalator with the right half of the tread holding those pedestrians that refuse to walk up the steps and those to the left were shuffling, moving upwards under their own energy.


Typically the holding pen for northbound travel has the commuters ready and willing and waiting with a few stragglers seen running for the departure area.  Those of us who just departed the vessel are looking at two EMPTY escalators coming down (northbound) with nary a soul in sight.

Why can't one of the northbound escalators be reversed to travel up, and if not, why can't it be used as a set of stairs?   Appropriate signage at the top should be sufficient of a warning.

Jackboots In The Canadian Academy. Freedom Of Expression And Inquiry Under Threat Again. University of Lethbridge, Alberta.


                                         by Robin Mathews   December 2017


Freedom of Speech battles in universities often mirror problems in the larger community, and the one being fought at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, is no exception.  It is conducted, on one side, by convinced believers as a response to alleged Anti-Semitic positions which have surfaced there and which, the believers think, need relentless, radical, extreme responses.  Conversely, the conflict looks, to some others, perhaps, as a program to create a huge smokescreen behind which representatives or friends or sympathizers of the State of Israel can attempt to cut off any examination of that State's activities which might bring it into disrepute.  And the quickest method is to brand any adverse references to the accounts of history held by the State of Israel as well as to any of its actions and policies as acts of Anti-Semitism.



Forces wishing to dominate and to dictate inquiry and to control freedom of expression always seek to repress certain kinds of knowledge, investigation, and expressions of opinion.



In the late 1980s I was proposed for a year's exchange with a professor in Simon Fraser University's English Department at the time dominated by U.S. immigrants holding U.S. citizenship.  They rejected my presence at SFU and were backed belligerently by SFU's Canadian president who was quoted in the Vancouver Sun saying that he wouldn't have Robin Mathews on his campus and he didn't know a university president in Canada who would!  (Amusing slander, but slander nonetheless.)



If William Saywell's comment sounds like an utterance by present University of Lethbridge president Michael Mahon it may be because both men appear to have fallen to thinking they could dispose of human persons in any way a passing whim suggested ... and to make no bones about it!



The U.S. citizen chair of the SFU English Department wrote me a letter saying that many people in the Department disliked my views on literary and cultural nationalism in Canada and did not want to give me a place at SFU to utter them. That was a ban on free (scholarly) expression. I took it to mean, also, that U.S. citizens intended to decide what Canadians could say to Canadians in British Columbia.



There was a battle.  It was long months and months. The national faculty body (the CAUT) was strong. It declared SFU in violation of academic freedom. At that point, SFU admitted it had lost.  The intensity of the battle is hard to think of now the basis of it is so apparently minor.  Reports, however, were that grown men at SFU interviewed on the matter almost burst into tears. And, indeed, passions were running so high the SFU Administration asked me if I would teach from the Centre for Canadian Studies rather than from the bent, bleeding, and discountenanced English Department.



That battle was won at SFU for freedom of expression and inquiry!  But the personal victory was muted because president Saywell and a few of his closest underlings, I believe, did everything they could in the next years to limit my effectiveness.  No surprise. The fortunes one might say of (academic) war.



At the University of Lethbridge twenty-six-year professorial veteran of Native American Studies, Liberal Arts, Globalization Studies and more Anthony Hall has responded with invention, far-reaching research, and creativity to the hugeness of the body of knowledge he has taken as his province. In two large, scholarly, and fascinating works (The American Empire and the Fourth World (2003), and Earth Into Property (2010) Hall traces the oppression and exploitation of the globe's indigenous peoples since the historic voyage to the new world of Christopher Columbus in 1492.



As a result of his wide-ranging research (and travel) Anthony Hall couldn't fail to see the power and to observe the participation of the U.S.A. in what he names imperial globalization.  Nor could he evade the intimate ties between the State of Israel and the U.S.A. Nor, of course, could he fail to see the huge influence the State of Israel has upon U.S. policy in the Middle East (a region populated with indigenous peoples, like the Palestinians).



He is, moreover, a scholar who believes genuinely that no subject worthy of study can be declared off limits whether Canadian culture and literary nationalism or the complex Holocaust in Nazi Germany operated preceding and during what we choose to call The Second World War (1939-1945). Donning the apparel of true scholars everywhere, Professor Hall accepts that there is no historical, scientific, or cultural fact however apparently sunk in concrete that cannot be revisited, re-opened, re-weighed, re-examined, reassessed.



Closer to home, professor Hall has paid attention to the rising tide of voices in the U.S.A. and Canada which claims the official account of 9/11 (of, that is to say, the destruction of the Trade Towers in New York on September 11, 2001) was, has been, and is the product of a huge Conspiracy by complex powers (involving U.S. government) producing a Conspiracy Theory created to mislead everyone and to place the blame for the event on people of Islam, especially in the Middle East … people, incidentally, who have become, it would seem, by the accident of history, enemies  - in fact  of both the U.S.A. and the State of Israel.



And so if more and more authentic voices are saying the official account of 9/11 was created by government and Secret Intelligence Conspiracy Theorists wanting to pin onto Islam the guilt of 9/11 a question forces itself forward.  If the formally accused did not, then, who did organize and carry out the destruction of the buildings of the World Trade Centre (and of the building which, a little later, simply appeared to collapse into rubble without any apparent cause)?



Also, since September 11, 2001 an increasing number of so-called terrorist events and attacks have occurred all over the Western World and have (by persistent and often careful and scholarly non government-approved examination) been called by investigators arising in the population faked events or what is called False Flags undertaken (it is alleged) to terrify innocent Western populations and to condition them to accept Islam (in a hundred different forms) as the over-arching enemy of the peace-loving and (mostly) Christian West.  In answer to the very active, very numerous, and wholly un-government on-going operations and investigations into those terrorist events, Anthony Hall has found himself a co-host of The False Flag Weekly News.



It is hugely relevant to the whole subject (and especially to Canadians) that in July, 2016, Madam Justice Catherine Bruce in the B.C. Supreme Court declared that an apparent attempted Islamic Terrorist Event at the B.C. legislature grounds on July 1, 2013, was, in fact, wholly the work of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, [a major False Flag event] entrapping socially challenged converts to Islam, counseling them, coaching them, assisting them, giving them money, and delivering them to the terrorist site and then arresting them as terrorist criminals caught in the act!  For all those who say that people questioning terrorist events are ‘conspiracy theorists making up lies the highly organized RCMP criminal action proves absolutely that at least one State Canada has engaged in a major False Flag event in order to slander Islam. It did so employing hundreds of RCMP and millions of dollars of Canadian taxpayers funds (during the Conservative government led by Stephen Harper).



Subsequently, in answer to a call for a Public Inquiry into the RCMP, (Liberal) Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Ralph Goodale, responding for the Liberal, Justin Trudeau cabinet, expressed, in effect, approval of organized criminal activity on the part of the RCMP... what he calls in his letter the RCMP's major crime technique.  Nowhere in the letter does he refer to the request for a Public Inquiry, instead urging understanding and support for the Force he gives evidence of accepting as a criminal organization. 



If the officially declared Islamic men did not plan, organize, and carry out what we call 9/11 then who did?  All possibilities are open for consideration.  One of them is that the State of Israel was involved, wanting to influence the U.S.A. towards an aggressive policy in the Middle East.  The claim may be completely false. Naturally, the hosts running The False Flag Weekly News, Kevin Barrett and Anthony Hall, would air the possibilities (among many others) on their weekly program.  And they did and, apparently Professor Hall was not unsympathetic to the idea that the State of Israel may have had a hand in the events of 9/11.



Then, in an astonishing event on Friday, August 26, 2016 when Anthony Hall was out of Canada, someone placed a despicable, violently Anti-semitic cartoon on his Facebook Page completely unknown to Hall.  With truly remarkable speed,  organizations and individuals, some apparently supporting the State of Israel went to work as if Anthony Hall was wholly guilty of the posting on his Facebook Page. People from outside the University, a few who would normally be thought of as related to the State of Israel in one way or another, pressed upon the University Administration, the police, officers of the Alberta government and more.  (The Alberta government, it seems, has insisted upon keeping secret some of the names of those complaining.)



If one were to suggest the possibility that a carefully staged campaign was unleashed against Anthony Hall, one might not be wrong to so suggest.  The University Administration filed a complaint against Hall with Alberta Human Rights.  The complaint was rejected.  And so the University Administration filed another one.



In an action (some believe) marked by intemperance and folly without having exchanged a single word with Professor Hall, a senior academic colleague - president Michael Mahon of the University of Lethbridge ordered Hall off every University of Lethbridge campus and suspended him without pay.  He did those things while completely ignoring ALL carefully constructed processes within the university for managing complaints against professorial staff.  The processes are written into almost every university faculty/administration agreement in Canada and have been honed and improved over many decades.



Slander and libel filled the Lethbridge air to match the wholly unacceptable actions of the University of Lethbridge Administration and Board of Governors. Nonetheless, the national faculty body, the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT), and the local Faculty Association held firm the CAUT naming the University of Lethbridge in Violation of Academic Freedom, not a light designation in the university world in Canada.  In a court procedure weighing the actions, a little later, the Administration of the university won over neither the judge presiding nor the Alberta government represented at the process.



And so on November 23, 2017, the University of Lethbridge Administration reinstated Professor Hall, lifting all sanctions against him and announcing it would also withdraw its complaint against him to Alberta Human Rights.  After fifteen months of attempted Jackboot Justice, the Administration at the University of Lethbridge agreed to use the processes long set up to provide fair and impartial judgements of complaints against faculty members.  At one level the return to civility by the University of Lethbridge Administration is a victory for democratic forces in Canada. But at another level its long hold-out, a period filled with injustice to Anthony Hall as well as being filled with violent language and slander, will long remain a scandal in the Canadian Academy.



On the same day November 23, 2017 - a top B'nai Brith official declared that B'nai Brith is outraged at Professor Hall's full reinstatement which is coupled with the move to due process in the examination of complaints against him.

Premier Gordon Campbell left it to Kevin Falcon to explain the $3 billion lost to HST as "A failed experiment,"

This morning's tea at Edgemont Village was interrupted by former Minister of Finance Kevin Falcon strolling into Delany's.  His presence reminded us of the $3 Billion squandered by the BC Liberals on the HST.   Money that could have been used to reduce, or totally eliminate, our MSP monthly billing for the past seven years.

Instead, the BC Liberals took their $3 Billion in 'dividends' from ICBC and BC Hydro to  "balance" their version of fudget budgets, sending both Crown Corporations on the road to insolvency.

Christy Clark's Site C  .... .... "A failed experiment,"

The fast ferries began their slow but relentless voyage to oblivion almost 10 years ago. The starting point was March 1, 2000 and the cabinet room of the then New Democratic Party government.

The father of the fast ferries, Glen Clark, was gone from the premier's office. A new minister for ferries, Joy MacPhail, was trying to explain why the close to half a billion dollars Clark had spent on the project was mostly gone along with him.  "A failed experiment," she called the project. Her briefing supplied new premier Ujjal Dosanjh and his ministers with the ugly details.   Snip

Then there was this earlier failed 'experiment' using tolls by Kevin Falcon as Minister of Highways:

 Just weeks after hard-hatted politicians kicked off construction of a new, 10-lane Port Mann bridge, the province of British Columbia announced Friday that it will be on the hook for the entire cost of the $3.3-billion project after failing to reach a deal with private-sector partners.

 Snip

"If you can't get financing for this kind of a project, where there is a guaranteed source of revenue over a lengthy period of time, what project can you get financing for?" Mr. Ralston said to reporters after the news conference.

The new Port Mann bridge is to be financed through commuter tolls of $3 each way for cars. The planned completion date is 2013.   - Globe and Mail

Laila Yuile.... Post on The Billion Dollar Question with only one right answer

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Christy Clark's early campaign smoke and mirrors propaganda no different than her Site C's wasted two years

Christy, obviously.   4:20 induced Smoke and Mirror promise of jobs

Two guys standing around and watching.

No safety goggles or earmuffs for Christy.

Obviously No training for Christy .... otherwise she would have known that the nailer has to have an airline connected to a compressor.  No airline, No compressor visible.

Probable not trusted to have nails in the nailer either.  To protect the photographers

Christy Safety geared to the hilt with a trillion dollar promise to industry, and 100,000 jobs, eh

Her two helpers have aged, eh, and still standing around.

BC Hydro Site C would generate savings to ratepayers in the range of $650 to $900,000,000 (Typical household) with "Insurance Power"?

Its not clear to us if the number Premier Christy Clark used to sell Site C to her followers makes any sense at all.  They took a hypocritical hypothetical average on the first 50 years of Site C and then theorized that the range would be from $650         to      $900,000,000 in savings which would equate to 6 to 8 % for the typical household.     The larger number benefiting the few for the sole purpose of providing FREE hydro electricity to the LNG producers use, and to mining outfits like Imperial Metals who's Alberta owner coincidentally donated heavily to the BC Liberal Party, would be the beneficiaries leaving ratepayers on the hook to build the well over BUDGET transmission lines to Red Chris mine.
Over the first 50 years of Site C's project life, ratepayers will save an average of $650 to $900 million each year, compared to alternatives - this amounts to average annual savings of approximately six to eight per cent for the typical household.  The project will generate a century of low-cost power, providing enough electricity for about 450,000 homes per year - an eight-per-cent increase in supply to BC Hydro's system in 2024. - News release
As to that 450,000 homes per year being created by Site C...... what about Premier Gordon Campbell's backing of Grouse Mountain Resort's Eye of the Wind..... in 2010 .. Winter Olympics where they promised that the 'amusement park ride' (wheelchair not permitted into the elevator) would have a "capacity of 1.5 megawatts – which Grouse Mountain estimates is enough to power up to 400 homes a year – and is expected to generate up to 25 per cent of the resort's operational electricity needs annually."    BC Hydro congratulates Grouse Mountain Resort on The Eye of the Wind turbine's successful clean energy generation

Grouse Mountain Resort Eye of the Wind
Using simple math    if  one wind turbine can have a capacity that would service 400 homes then Site C's claim that they will be able to service 450,000 homes ... means that with the erection of 1,125 wind turbines ......  why build Site C at all.

Not on the north shore of Metro Vancouver because..... there has never been enough wind at Grouse Mountain that would warrant building a turbine up there on the mountain except for one exception,  The Amusement Park.
