The First American Prime Minister, On The Importance Of Voting

"I am an American Democrat. I will vote for Kerry in November," Ignatieff told The Glasgow Herald in 2004.

Oops.

And we're supposed to trust this guy when he tells us that he will not try to form a coalition? That is the number 1 issue in this election.

I wonder who screened Biffy, and signed his nomination forms - Boob Ray?

Who was the one that did the background check on Biffy?

I can not wait until "Fox North" is on the air, perhaps they would ask those questions.

Still no word if the LIEberals that owed Elections Canada their thousands of dollars, are runnung in this election.

If they are, why don't the Conservative War Room expose them and ask why illegal candadates are running for the LIEberals.

Elections Canada is gaining the reputation of Global Warming/Climatte Change - nothing but a joke.

"Liberal Party of Canada postpones convention

I just received an email from Liberal Party President Alf Apps letting me know June’s convention has been postponed, without any further explanation.

Apps has this to say:

As we work together to win this election, the Liberal Party of Canada is postponing the 2011 Biennial Convention, which had been scheduled for June 17-18 in Ottawa. The good news is that a new date will be set shortly, as per our constitution, to take place within six months of the original date. Stay tuned for more updates.

That is ridiculous.

Apps has now provided the Conservatives, the NDP and the media with an opportunity to start the week off with claims that:

A) The Liberal Party is broke and can’t afford a convention; or

B) The Liberal Party believes that Ignatieff is going to lose, and the next convention will be a leadership convention.

Either way, dumb, dumb, dumb. Apps can’t be replaced soon enough."

The Laser: A Trifecta + Is the left MSM also a fraud?

"*One of the functions of the media is to protect the public from fraudulent statements made by public figures."

1. Brian Lilley has put the laser on Liberal Count Ignatieff:

"Asked to clarify why Ignatieff once said he would vote for Kerry and why he says now that he has never voted outside of Canada, Ignatieff's spokesman dodged the questions."

2. Daniel Leblanc of the Globe-Mail put the laser on the Liberal Ad$Cam fraud of Liberals Chretien/MartinJr.

3. Liberal Count Ignatieff's o'Harvard buddy comes under the laser of Donald Trump.

...-

"*Donald Trump Scores an Important Victory... Over the Media"

"But Trump has achieved something important. His decision to focus like a laser on Obama's failure to produce a birth certificate has highlighted the absolute corruption of the American media on the subject of Obama, and the dangers of power granted in the absence of an unaligned press.

Given that Obama's primary claim to the presidency has been his compelling life story -- his biracialism, his international upbringing, especially the time he spent in Muslim lands -- the media has shown shockingly little interest in several pieces of information about Obama's life which might legitimately concern voters. Nowhere in his biographies, for example, does Obama mention his 1981 trip to Pakistan, where he stayed with influential political leaders from that country at a time when a State Department advisory warned U.S. citizens against travel to Pakistan. There has also been a strange disinterest in Obama's 2006 trip to Kenya where, as a sitting U.S. senator, Obama criticized the incumbent government (a U.S. ally) and barnstormed with a Marxist candidate he supported. So too, there has been nary a peep among media elites over Obama's funding of the radical "education" work of bomb thrower Bill Ayers, or his own work on behalf of the activist group ACORN, the now defunct largest purveyor of voter registration fraud in American history (and, apparently, an enabler of under aged prostitution.).

One of the functions of the media is to protect the public from fraudulent statements made by public figures. The unwillingness of the media to fulfill this role in the case of Obama has led to significant, and probably needless, public tension. Obama's resistance to releasing the long version of his birth certificate, has served not only to raise legitimate speculation about the circumstances surrounding his birth, but to give fodder to anti-Obama extremists."

Technically speaking, Iggy himself didn't vote for Kerry, etc, he was probably just channeling

conditions like death or terminal illness.

Posted by: Gord Tulk at April 11, 2011 7:42 AM

I don't think it matters who you vote for. They are all just puppets controlled by corporations.
Talk about balancing the budget under a fiat monetary system, is impossible.A Government has only two ways to obtain money. One is taxation of it's citizens, the other is borrowing from the banks.It is ludicrous for the government to put billions of dollars into circulation by borrowing from the private banks, when it can create the extra money it needs,virtually free.The Canadian government's deficit is not about its size, or its size relative to the GDP, but the insane way it is being financed. None of the current parties talk of reforming our current system, none of them will get my vote either.

Gord,

Well apparently it is easier in some states than other ;-) (The dead shall rise in Illinois)

However, compliant returinging officers in Democratic friendly districts could make this easier.

Best case for Iggy, he just comes across as a boaster and a chameleon. It wont play well either way, because he clearly is able to change with the elites he is hanging around with. This is the downside of being an unapologetic "cosmo" you actually have no country, because most of the time it is to burdensome, and peasant like, to do so.

This is just who he is. He can make a virtue of necessity, I have lots of world experience (well world salon experience) and he can try to compare himself to Wayne Gretzky (remeber Wayne's uncle ran for the cons in Cambridge and I sure hope Wayne corrects Iggy for continually using his name)

So one hopes the con campaign has finally woken up, bring more evidence to their previous themes on Iggy and highlight the thing form the crypt (the ultimate tax on everything, cap and trade)

Canadian Politics

Jack Layton (NDP) met with the Queen of England.

He asked her, "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me in case I form the next
government?"
"Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."
Layton frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know if the people around me are really intelligent?"
The Queen took a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy, you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle". The Queen pushed a button on her intercom.
"Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?"
Tony Blair walked into the room and said, "Yes, my Queen?"
The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please, Tony, your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister.
Who is it?"Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered, "That would be me."
"Yes! Very good," said the Queen.
Layton went back home to ask Mike Ignatief, his Liberal cohort. "Answer this for me Iggy; Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"
"I'm not sure," said Iggy. "Let me get back to you on that one.." He went to his advisers and asked every one, but none could give him an answer.
Finally, he ended up in the men's room and recognized Steven Harper's shoes in the next stall.
Iggy asked Harper, "Hey Steve, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
Harper answered back, "That's easy you dummy, it's me!"
Iggy smiled, and said, "Thanks!" Then, he went back to speak with Layton.
"Say Jack, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It is Steven Harper." Layton got mad and yelled "No you bloody idiot it is not! It's Tony Blair"!

I love this:

Q: "How many Canadian elections did you vote in when you were living overseas?"

Ignatieff: "I voted in a couple. Can’t remember, happy to tell you. But I voted in Canadian elections since I was able to vote."

"Can't remember, happy to tell you" - it's the Liberal mantra:

"Where were you on the evening of October 12, 2003?"

"Can't remember, happy to tell you."

"What happened to the millions of dollars funneled back to the Liberal Party in the course of this money-laundering scheme?"

"Can't remember, happy to tell you."

"How many Canadian elections did you vote in when you were living overseas?"

"Can't remember, happy to tell you."

Posted by: EBD at April 11, 2011 10:45 AM

There is nothing wrong with working and writing in the USA and that writing can even be emboldened with a "I'm one of you" style but it bears repeating; if the conservatives placed before the Canadian electorate a candidate for PM with a similiar history to Mr. Ignatieff the voices of outrage from our media would be deafening.

Forbes: The Thinking Man's Candidate.

Who is in the sad sack with Liberal Count Ignatieff?

Old man Time: “by 5 p.m. Monday.”
…-

“Liberals can’t sack controversial candidate”

“Disgraced Liberal candidate Andre Forbes, who allegedly called natives “featherheads” and “lazy” years ago while heading a white rights group, isn’t going away quietly.

And while Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff thinks he sacked Forbes as a Liberal candidate last week, apparently he can’t actually do that.

Forbes, who will be addressing the media Monday to answer NDP “attacks” against him, is still listed as the confirmed candidate for the Quebec riding of Manicouagan on Elections Canada’s website.

“And the law does not contain any provision that would allow a party to remove its support to a confirmed candidate,” Elections Canada’s Serge Fleyfel told Le Soleil newspaper. Only Forbes can resign, by 5 p.m. Monday.

A member of Forbes’ team told Le Soleil he hasn’t ruled out running as an Independent.

“But his first option would be to remain as a Liberal candidate.”

If he doesn’t resign, the Liberal Party will not be allowed to run another candidate in the riding.”

The so-called debate is a joke as the Three Stooges will pile on PMSH and generally behave badly. Millions of Canadians won't bother watching the debacle, and will rely on the media for their analysis. PMSH will be portrayed as adversarial and mean-spirited. Ignatieff could have a complete meltdown and fling chairs about, Layton could run off the stage in tears and Duceppe could pee his pants on national TV and the media would report that PMSH was the loser.

Anyone who bases his/her vote on this debate shouldn't be allowed to vote.

The Conservative ads "just visiting" and "not in it for you" are targeted to affect Liberal supporters.

Ignatieff's secret 'hidden agenda' is to run for:

1. PM of Canada

If not sucessful:

2. Run for President of US in 2012

If not sucessful:

3. Run for PM of UK

Because the world citizen Liberal creed is to:

"Vote early, vote often, with other people's money."

I seem to remember Kerry being extolled as presidential material based on his Kennedy-esque hair stle, could be that Iggy based his deep admiration on this vital aspect, it would help explain the medias fixation on Harpers so called helmet hair.I guess it isn't natural looking like Craig Owlivers or Floyd Blanderson's

Micheal Ignatieff,Jack Layton and Gilles Duceppe are in their election bus on their way to a coalition meeting when,'WHAP'; they are struck by a semi and killed.
As the Emergency Medics and police are cleaning up the mess: one officer hears a 'POOFT' and presto,there's Micheal Ignatieff standing there beside a young cop.

"WWhhat are you doing here!?" says the officer,"You're supposed to be dead?"

Micheal shakes his head and says,"Well I was, but they let me come back."

"WWell, why would they do that if you were already dead?" asked the poor bewildered rookie.

"Ah," Micheal said,"It appears we weren't supposed to be their yet, so St Peter made us a deal that we could buy our way back for a million dollars each."

"Wow," says the young cop..."That,s great, but how did you manage that?"

"Oh,"said Micheal,"That was the easy part: I just got the Liberals to dig out some of that brown paper bag money to pay my costs, and here I am!"

"Well, what about the other two?" asked the cop.

"Oh them." said Micheal,"Well that wasn't so easy...the Liberal Party wouldn't give them any of the Adscam money,so I guess Jack is waiting for the Unions to bail him out,and as for Gilles,well I guess he's waiting the rest of Canada to foot his bill!"

"Mr. Ignatieff has simply confirmed what we already know — that he is a progressive, compassionate liberal. Always has been, always will be," Liboiron said in an e-mail.

Or maybe he's confirmed that he is certain that gaunt, aristocratic politicians with a rooted and poorly-concealed contempt for ordinary people make perfect heads of government on both sides of the border.

Posted by: Jm Whyte at April 11, 2011 12:46 PM

Why do I now suspect that Iggy believes in the "No Borders" crowd, you know, those folks who think that anyone should be allowed in Canada. No borders, no rules, anyone can vote.

Is this the Canada that most Canadians want? I think not.

Posted by: Robert W. (Vancouver) at April 11, 2011 12:57 PM

IMO, Ignatieff and May are globalists. Or 'internationalists' as Ignatieff would say. Ignatieff voted in Britain, called himself an American Democrat who was going to vote for John Kerry in 2004, and his wife does not yet have Canadian citizenship. May's family are connected to the Clintons; she has both American and Canadian citizenship. My concerns here have to do with Canadian sovereignty and ownership of our natural resources. Ignatieff's views regarding Cap and Trade (and carbon taxes) speak volumes; our leftist media outlets seem eager to keep his 2009 statements on this issue BURIED.

From today's Globe and Mail:

An attempt to confuse the issue?

"The report points to one quote Mr. Ignatieff provided to the Glasgow Herald in 2004, when he was a Harvard professor: 'I am an American Democrat. I will vote for [John] Kerry in November.'”

Then...(Ignatieff::"So, in 2004, I thought John Kerry was a better idea than George W. Bush and only a conservative would think that George W. Bush was a better choice for the United States, but I can’t vote in the United States and never did.'”

So why say it?

Let's see if I can get this straight: Ignatieff has apparently had voting rights held exclusively for U.S. citizens, the same for citizens of England, he still holds a Countship inherited from the nobility of 19th Century Czarist Russia, and he is also supposedly a Canadian citizen running for Prime Minister. So what gives? Me smells another "birthers" cover-up a la Barack Hussein Obama -- Canadian style.

Remember Conrad Black? The Liberals and Chretien wouldn't even tolerate him being granted a Lordship from the Brits -- a symbolic gesture -- and allow him to remain a Canadian citizen. The Libs revoked Black's Canadian citizenship, although the British monarchy is still officially our head of our State.

But Iggy being a Russian Count, and apparently holding a plethora of other citizenship rights abroad as well? NO PROBLEMA SEñORES!

I just heard Icky tell some reporters that he wanted Canada to have a 'learning' government. This terminology irritates me so much that I have to address it. Icky claims to be a writer and a educated man; as such, he should know the difference between using past participles or gerunds as nouns and using verbs as an adjectives, modifying nouns. A past participle (past perfect tense of some verbs) can function as a noun but can never be used, properly, as an adjective. No literate person would be caught dead using the term 'a learning man', thus a 'learning government' is equally incorrect. A man/government (noun and subject) can learn, will learn or has learned ...followed by a predicate such as; 'how to change a tire', is correct use of the verb 'learn'. A past participle, when functioning as a subject, cannot modify another noun (that would be redundant) eg "Learning is fun." (no extra noun in this proper sentence).

Does the continual slaughter of the English language by this silly fellow bother anyone else? I have been forced to wonder; is Icky thumbing his nose to the citizens of Canada by purposely using 'rube talk' or is he ignorant? Is he insulting the citizens of Canada or does he really not understand the functions of the different parts of speech? Inquiring minds want to know!

Posted by: Jema 54 at April 11, 2011 3:53 PM

Jema54, Ignatieff has also said "I could care less" when the context and meaning required "I couldn't care less"...

A news article I read this morning made it sound as though "will" ("I will vote for Kerry") means the same thing as "would" ("I would vote for Kerry")....Journalists can be devious that way:)

Posted by: chutzpahticular at April 11, 2011 4:15 PM

Jema, he is a member of the intelliduncia, they are far removed from us rubes. They are the only ones who don't know the difference between theft and honesty, right and wrong etc. I would love to know where Iggulas money is coming from, is it being funneled from the Harvard connection, clandestine foundations run by shady billionaires? These theiving Lieberals have been away from the treasury fo over 5 years, virtually no donations and still they have money to drag Canada through an unneccessary election. Cap and Trade, National Energy Frankenstein Program #2 if Iggula can resussitate the monster and Canada is stupid enough, God help us.

Posted by: dwo at April 11, 2011 4:26 PM

Sorry for this OT cut & paste but this statement needs wider circulation...

"We will not release or comment on our audit report on the G8 Legacy Infrastructure Fund. Under the Auditor General Act, we can only present reports when Parliament is sitting. The Office of the Audit General of Canada remains the custodian of its reports until they are presented to the Speaker of the House of Commons for tabling.

I strongly caution the public to wait until our final report on the G8 Legacy Infrastructure Fund has been tabled in Parliament and made public.

We work very hard to keep our reports confidential before they are tabled. There are indications that an early draft of this report may have been released by someone outside our Office. Our normal audit process requires that we share early drafts of our reports with government departments. We do this so they can validate the facts on which our conclusions are based, provide any additional relevant information, and so they can prepare responses to our recommendations. Sometimes during the process of fact validation, additional information is brought to our attention. Only the final report that is tabled in Parliament represents our audit findings and conclusions".

Posted by: Ron at April 11, 2011 4:27 PM

Ron, looks to me as though the Opposition parties, or one or more of them, seized the opportunity to leak this DRAFT (incomplete findings subject to revision) specifically when the House of Commons was not sitting, so its contents would create a big murky, muddy splash all over the Conservatives just before the debates and especially before the VOTE.

Thanks for posting this. As Emily Latella would say, that's very different.

Peter went OT when he said in regard to Canada's debt: "the insane way it is being financed... None of the current parties talk of reforming ...none of them will get my vote either."

All I can say is that with such deep thoughts, we should all be glad he's NOT voting!

Liberal Count Ignatieff confesses:

Count keeps on talking ’bout HimSelf.

>>> I-Moi am a socialist.

*I-Moi = a socialist narcissist: “I”, “I”, “I”.

“*I’ve lived overseas, and wherever I’ve been I’ve supported progressive policies.”"

Here is the progressive mindset:

“How does the evil Tea Party keep kicking our butts when our ideas are so wildly popular and clearly superior?”

More: “some of the things that may be impeding progressives include excessive party loyalty, the desire for a charismatic leader (the “XFK phenomenon”), and the urge to prematurely celebrate accomplishments that are flawed and incomplete.”

…-

“Progressives ponder why tea party is kicking their butts”

“By the time I finished reading this lengthy, plaintive missive by Richard Esko at the Huffington Post, I will confess that I’d actually begun feeling sorry for him. Observing the conclusion of the recent budget battles and viewing them as a disastrous loss for the progressive movement, Mr. Esko casts about for an answer to what seems to be the question of the day: How does the evil Tea Party keep kicking our butts when our ideas are so wildly popular and clearly superior? And he thinks he’s found some answers.”

I-Moi Liberal Count Ignatieff gets a spread on politico.

“It says something about Canada that this isn’t a disqualifier:”.

“Canadian candidate talked of voting elsewhere

It says something about Canada that this isn’t a disqualifier:

[Liberal leader Michael] Ignatieff now claims he has never voted in a foreign country, but quotations from his past suggest he voted Labour in Britain and would vote Democrat in the U.S.

“I am an American Democrat. I will vote for Kerry in November,” Ignatieff told The Glasgow Herald in 2004.”

Drained Brain at April 11, 2011 4:49 PM,

Good link. So I wonder if "Mr. Ethics" Ignatieff will be willing to go back to the U.S. and face an investigation into his alleged voting fraud? Are there extradition treaties for "Canadian" politicians like Iggy (WHO ALSO MAY BE Russian, American, or Brit at the same time!)?

chutz
* Ian Davey - former Chief of Staff to Leader of the Opposition Michael Ignatieff and son of Senator Keith Davey. Credited as one of the Liberals who ventured to Harvard and convinced Ignatieff to return to Canada. Prior to his political work, Davey has worked as an independent television producer in Toronto.[3]

* Dan Brock - Principal Secretary to the Opposition Leader, prior to joining Ignatieff's office, Brock worked as a lawyer in a large Toronto firm.[3]

* Alfred Apps - President of the Liberal Party of Canada and the only member of the group who lives in Rosedale, described by Globe and Mail political affairs columnist Jane Taber as, "a well-connected Bay Street lawyer and one of the Liberals responsible for plucking Michael Ignatieff from Harvard and bringing him back to Canada."[4]

I think Micheal lies on a regular basis...a pathological liar perhaps?

He just sees himself as royalty....both in his birthright and within academia.

He is too far removed in his own mind to believe that he is not so clever by half.

When King Louis xvi and Marie Antoinette tried to escape Paris during the French Revolution...they most likely would have escaped to the protection of her family in Austria had they not...

A) Stopped at Louis's insistence at an inn close to the border where he was recognized,and

B) The queen had not insisted in packing her extensive wardrobe along thereby slowing down the escape.

Ahh...the privileged class...not overly bright where it counts!...

Right Count/ er Micheal!!

ricardo @3:38 - I've been wondering about that too. Condrad Black can't receive a British title and hold on to his Canadian citizemship (because of a Cretien vendetta), but Iggy can be a sodding Count, and run for P.M. on the Liberal ticket, and it's a-okay?

Posted by: Black Mamba at April 11, 2011 6:33 PM

Ignatieff is ethics free intellectual idiot.

It seems that in the intellectualdom, the only statement that is valid is the latest, as though what was, was, it is no more.

Have to add that a political machine, that is the “back room boys” so to speak will turn any decent human being into a shameless robotic idiot. The only exception is the socialist/fascist characters, they are born that way, it may be a genetic flaw that the headshrinkers did not have time to define yet.

Posted by: Lev at April 11, 2011 6:37 PM

Mamba,

Yep and a Russian Count has actual political power -- equivalent to a British Baron or an American Governor; whereas a Lord (e.g. Conrad), is the lowest on the nobility totem pole -- purely symbolic.

Posted by: ricardo at April 11, 2011 6:39 PM

If he voted in the US as a non-citizen isn't that against the law and second if he voted there'd be a record of said vote. So will the Liberal Media do due diligence or tell us to shut up they have no problem with Iffy voting in other Nation's Election?

Posted by: Rose at April 11, 2011 7:11 PM

How about a prisoner exchange?

Bring back Lord Conrad Black (after all he has more than redeemed himself by helping to reform other prisoners and is now an advocate) and send them Count Iggy in exchange to face charges.

Posted by: ricardo at April 11, 2011 7:35 PM

I don't think either of them have any power, Ricardo, what with the revolution and all. I don't think a Russian Count counts. I just find it ridiculous.

Posted by: Black Mamba at April 11, 2011 7:39 PM

But yes, I'd be more than happy to trade Black for Iggy. Conrad for P.M. says me.

He((thinks) he sacrificed by coming back to Canada in his attempt to be the big fish in a little pond.

The Canaadian electorate, is dumb, but, even they sense a person who transparently despises them and the country they inhabit.

Posted by: john begley at April 12, 2011 2:02 AM

Thanks for the excellent link to Braitbart, Drained Brain. The comments on this article are amusing; most Americans posting are laughing at us Canadians for allowing a guy, who is an American citizen (as oft said by Icky himself...'we Americans", "it is my country (United states) as much as it is yours"..'I will vote Democrat'...the list goes on and on), to run for Prime Minister. I would be embarrassed if the Americans had not voted in a rather strange, foreign type fellow for the top job in their nation.

Right now we have a true blue Canadian Prime Minister; he is not a French citizen (like Dionsky), he is not an owner of a fleet of foreign ships (like Paul II) he is not a thug (like the Cretian), he is not a Stalin/Hitler lover (like Turdo)...we have come a long way to the good; the Americans, not so much.

Canadians must 'Count' our blessings and give our Prime Minister, Mr. Stephen Harper, the majority he has earned. I don't care where the Liberano import leader goes after the election. He could maybe try his luck in Hungry; he has an 'in' as the spouse of a Hungarian citizen.

Posted by: Jema 54 at April 12, 2011 4:10 AM

Since canada has:
BLOC, Duceppe a marxist leninist
NDP, Layton, a Socialist
LPOC,the most corrupt party in canadian history
And since all three parties have signed an agreement together as a COALITION PARTY.

And since the MSM, promoters, supporters of all three parties (calition)
What is one more issue added to the problem. If Ignatieff who is suppose to be the ringleader of all the three parties and of the media, because of the LIBERAL BRAND, Ignatieff like the previous leaders has entitlement for himself as well. Therefore whatever Ignatieff says like he is democrat from the tip of his head to bottom of his feet or was going to vote for Kerry or whatever, he knows that he is entitle to this own entitlements just as much as the other liberals leaders had.

Only us canadians and the PM and Conservatives are not allowed to have any of the sorts or else the msm will be after us canadians and conservatives for something that never happened but to the msm it did happen so that they have something to write about.

Posted by: Jen at April 12, 2011 9:28 AM

I couldn't care less about Ignatieff's citizenship or where he voted.

The man has proven beyond any doubt that he is an idiot and a liar and completely unqualified to lead this country. He is the leader of the most corrupt, dishonest political party in Canadian history with a track record that resembles that of a banana republic dictatorship. He would gladly sell his soul and join forces with socialists and separatists to push aside an elected government.

His background is the least of his shortcomings.
