7:41 P.M. Dear Haaretz.com … TAKE A COUPLE OF VALLIUMS !!! …

2015MediaHead

Trump’s anti-media blitzkrieg, which includes undermining its credibility, branding it as an enemy of the American people and selectively boycotting the outlets that annoy him the most, are being widely cheered by right-wingers with poisoned minds. After eons in which right-wing politicians have portrayed the mainstream media as mouthpieces for the dreaded liberal establishment, after years in which conservatives have been gorging themselves with the dark fantasies and concocted conspiracy theories of delusional right-wing media, it’s hardly surprising that Trump’s fans cheer him on as if they were bloodthirsty crowds in Rome’s Colosseum, delighting in yet another Christian being torn to bits by the beast in the arena.

MORBNOTE ; A tad ‘ over the top ‘  .. Don’t ya think ?!!! …

Trump is a dream come true for all those who detest those arrogant journalists who presume to speak in the name of freedom of speech and the rule of law, two concepts that are also being steadily eroded now by similarly reckless politicians. Republicans, who haven’t completely taken leave of their consciences – even though some of them may share Trump’s antagonism towards the press – are well aware that their president is playing with fire. They realize that he is trying to mold an “alternative reality” which he’ll be able to sculpt as he sees fit. They have no idea whether Trump will want or be able to stop at the last minute, before damage is done to the First Amendment – or the physical well-being of a journalist.

The states said Trump’s travel ban harmed individuals, businesses and universities. Citing Trump’s campaign promise to stop Muslims from entering the U.S., they said the ban unconstitutionally blocked entry to people based on religion.

Both sides faced tough questioning during an hour of arguments Tuesday conducted by phone  … an unusual step that was broadcast live on cable networks, newspaper websites and social media. It attracted a huge audience.

The judges hammered away at the Trump administration’s claim that the ban was motivated by terrorism fears, but they also challenged the states’ argument that it targeted Muslims.

6:05 P.M. Typical Globe and Mail !!! …

2015DoubleAppMed

The following is a prime example of several of my categories colliding !!! … This is an excerpt from the left wing , social liberal mindset of one of the staff of the Globe and Mail … Apparently approved by the ‘ editor ‘ !!! …

… It is this neutralizing of sexual orientation and gender identity that so infuriates critics … Listing such polarizing issues as simply one more of the qualities that make up a person , on a par with eye colour and family background , contradicts the tenets of their faiths … As one group puts it ; the lessons ‘ show no respect nor tolerance for traditionally-principled families ‘ …

But that is where the critics make their big mistake … The values reflected in the new curriculum are not family values … They are society’s values …

We live in a society in which equality and tolerance are enshrined as fundamental priorities … We want children to be armed against abuse , to be able to flourish on their own terms and under their own identity and to appreciate the differences in others … We want young men and women to grow up with a clear understanding of consent in sexual relations … These are the lessons that a public school system should teach , as long as it is done with care and the lessons are based on sound educational principles … The Ontario curriculum , which is conventional when compared with curriculums in other provinces and countries , meets that standard …

We will give this to its critics , though : The curriculum has a bizarre omission that baffles even the most open-minded and modern parent … When discussing sex , it never once mentions marriage or love … This is absurd …

Proponents of the new curriculum say its critics need to wake up and face reality , that this isn’t your grandfather’s world any more … Okay … And yet these same self-avowed realists look out the window and don’t see marriage , or love , going on around them ?…

No , marriage is not a basic societal value any more … But it has value to society and it is a fundamental part of many of the religions in Canada , and is also an important civil ceremony … It seems like a bit of a provocation not to acknowledge the role of marriage , traditional or otherwise , in our world … If children can learn over time about the different sorts of parents that exist in their world , then they can also learn that some parents are married and why that is important to them and irrelevant to others … At the very least , the government should acknowledge its existence in the curriculum …

As for love , when did that word become unmentionable ?… The curriculum refers to sex as a way of showing ‘ affection ‘ … 

MORBNOTE ; The above nonsense is certainly not my point of veiw !!! … I’ll add my thoughts to this later …

I do have to admit … I’m RIGHT into this !!! …

The Duffy trial will be one of the most heavily covered court cases in memory  … With reporters from many news outlets attending daily … Besides the main courtroom  … Staff at the Ottawa courthouse have prepared a 135-seat overflow room where the proceedings will be piped in on live video … But proceedings in Canadian courtrooms are not televised or recorded for broadcast …  So the best way to get up-to-the-minute information is online !!! …

Ahh yes .. Here’s where it all takes place … The joy the average schmo takes in … Witnessing the ‘ pork roast ‘ of one of those ‘ responsible ‘ for their misery of an existence  …  According to the ‘ press ‘ that is .. But then again … One must note that the ‘ press ‘ can’t sardine themselves in there tight enough !!! …

No jury … Just ONE man … A ‘ judge ‘ … Who will decide what the whole sordid affair amounts to … A ‘ lawyer ‘ … Who hung in long enough to ‘ judge ‘ his fellow lawyers … By ‘ passing a bar ‘ …

Who gives a shit about the ‘ people ‘ involved anyway ?!!! …

This all began because a supposed ‘ intelligent news reporter ‘  … Of thirty odd years of experience in exposing this exact type of blatant fraud !!! … Was given the ‘ Platinum PIN # ‘ for the public bank account by being appointed to the Senate … The rules regarding how he spends OUR money are simply too confusing !!! …

Apparently … When one sees the huge potential increase of numbers in the bank account … The number of digits in their IQ diminish accordingly !!! …

Below is a mockingly satirical version of those ‘ strict rules and guidelines ‘ that they find so difficult to comprehend … But pretty much sum up the attitudes of these ever inhaling ‘ swinular beings of the trough ‘ !!! …

Nigel Wright , at the time employed by the PMO , was the first one we heard about … By carving out a personal cheque to gloss over Mikey’s confusion over which province he actually resided in !!! … 

The Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff , being independently wealthy prior to the gift job that was bestowed upon him … Conspired with others to attempt to sweep the whole confusing fiasco under the Senate broadloom !!! …

 

TkachukAccording to the RCMP , David Tkachuk also participated in conversations about the audit of Duffy’s expenses and how the Senate should handle it … At the time , Tkachuk was the chair of the Internal Economy Committee , which oversaw the auditing process that ultimately led to the suspensions of Duffy , Patrick Brazeau and Pamela Wallin from the Senate … CTV News has reported that Tkachuk helped tone down the wording in the final version of the Duffy audit …

 
No doubt , Pam and Pat will make guest appearances from time to time !!! …

 

StewartOlsen

Carolyn Stewart Olsen was another key figure on the Senate’s powerful Internal Economy Committee … She also faced allegations in an RCMP court document of trying unsuccessfully to quash Duffy’s expense audit in exchange for Duffy repaying his bill … When asked if she helped sanitize the auditors’ notes , she told CTV News :

‘ I object to the word ‘ sanitized ’ … I moved the motion to adopt the report ‘ …

Here’s where they love to utilize their ‘ political vocabulary ‘ that aims to confuse the average , to below average , thinking electorate … You see … ‘ Sanitize ‘ hints at the fact that something was admittedly ‘ unclean ‘ … ‘ dirty ‘ … or , to be blunt … ‘ possessing a pungent , putrid permeation ‘ … In the first place !!! …

Can’t have that now can we !!! … That would be tantamount to saying one’s hand was indeed inside the cookie jar !!! … So what she’s telling us is … That she ‘ moved ‘ the motion to adopt the report … Meaning that she convinced the others that expressing it clearly was not an option !!! … Simply remove all damning descriptions and we can all go to lunch !!! …

Word around Ottawa was that the government wanted the pick-and-pay decision to come out in early spring , in order to give the Conservative Party another pro-consumer issue for this fall’s election …

Interestingly , the news broke early on Thursday , after it was leaked to a number of press outlets … The CRTC prides itself on confidentiality , and it holds announcements like these until 4 p.m. (ET) because the information has the potential to move stock markets … I can’t recall the last time a leak like this occurred … But then , I can’t recall the last time the federal government took such a keen interest in a particular CRTC proceeding …

I’m not saying , of course , that someone in the Harper government leaked the news … But after setting the stage for this particular TV drama and overseeing a lot of the action , it wouldn’t be a surprise if they wanted to write their own ending , too …


 
Another media outlet … Not ‘ saying ‘ … Just ‘ implying at the top of it’s lungs ‘ to direct easily swayed minds to state it for them …

8:09 P.M. Bell Media president Kevin Crull … CAUGHT !!! …

2015MediaHead

Kevin CrullAccording to a Globe and Mail report , a decision by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission last week to unbundle cable and satellite packages by 2016 so infuriated Bell Media president Kevin Crull that he instructed CTV News journalists to keep the CRTC’s chairman off the air …

CTV and Bell Media are both part of Bell Canada , Canada’s largest media and telecommunications company , which is directly impacted by the CRTC decision and has frequently been at odds with the regulatory agency …

The Globe reported that after CRTC chairman Jean-Pierre Blais appeared on Bell Media’s Business News Network in the afternoon , Crull called CTV News president Wendy Freeman and demanded he be kept off all further coverage that day … Segments featuring Blais were dropped from Bell Media channels until the CTV flagship evening news broadcast with Lisa LaFlamme , after senior editors and correspondents decided there was no way to properly cover the CRTC decision without footage of the commission’s chairman …

Blais rebuked Bell Media’s president in a sharply worded statement Wednesday after the allegations in the Globe story became public , saying that defending journalistic independence was of paramount importance …

JPBlaise ‘ That a regulated company does not like one of the CRTC’s rulings is one thing … The allegation , however , that the largest communication  company in Canada is manipulating news coverage is disturbing ‘ said Blais … ‘ Holding a radio or television licence is a privilege that comes with  important obligations that are in the public interest , especially in regards to high-quality news coverage and reporting ‘ …

In his ‘ mea culpa ‘ Wednesday , Crull apologized for meddling in the editorial process and said CTV’s ‘ strong and straightforward reaction ‘ to his ‘ intrusion ‘ convinced him of the quality of the network’s journalism …

He added that he  ‘ re-learned a valuable lesson ‘ about staying out of editorial decisions ‘ from the best news team in the business ‘ …

Basically … Since CTV stood up to the boss and told him … ‘ There’s LAWS in this country that stipulate you can’t dictate to us how we do our job ! ‘ … His ‘ mea culpa ‘ was to realize he had better suck up real good or he may lose HIS highly over paid job !!! …
