Oriental Sentiment

 

If we, Canadians, show sentiment and concern

towards the Chinese guests in Canada,

the Chinese will show a marked preferential treatment

and care for Us Canadians.

Now we are noted to be the friendliest people on earth.

But we still are not THAT sentimental.

Instead of acting like disciplining fathers,

why don’t we act like protective mothers?

(another quotable?)

Costa Rica Leads The Way

 

 

 

Costa Rica

Costa Rica leads the way against Climate Change.

Cheap hydrogen is used which,

from Chem 101,

hydrogen is combined with oxygen

to produce water,

the by-product of which is electricity

which runs the motor.

This is so economical that it might even deserve

American sanctions to stop mass production.

A Tale of Two Countries

 

Cuba’s economy is groveling.

So is Venezuela’s.

When Cuba kicked out American casinos and hotels,

American sanctions rained down on the country.

When Venezuela planned to export its very large

oil reserves,

the country was bombarded with American sanctions

Venezuela’s economy sank.

Venezuela has money.

But it cannot import goods.

The coup de grace, Maduro’s regime has to be changed. 

BTW, Canada still fails to export its oil.

And still, Canada favors the regime change.

Venezuela

 

NOW who is interfering?

Venezuela is Venezuela’s business.

Canada has nothing to do with Venezuela.

Leave it alone.

If Venezuelans live differently from Canada

then so be it.

Not all peoples live like Canadians.

And it is not right to get Canada promote

a regime change in Venezuela

just because it lives differently.

If the Venezuelans elect a President legitimately

so let this President preside over the Venezuelans.

I am sure the world will salute Canada for meddling.

I am also sure it will cost Canadian money

to secure this salute.

But  heck, what would Canadians benefit from

meddling in the affairs of Venezuela?

A pat on the head from the Americans?

Maduro  is  President-elect  of  Venezuela.

He is Venezuela’s problem.

He has not been deposed yet.

Only American money can depose him.

But the American coffers is dry.

It cannot even pay its government employees.

America is not now able to be

the conscience of the world.

It cannot anymore make another regime change.

So therefore,

Yankee Go Home

Canuck Shut Up!

 

 

He Blinked!

He blinked!

The Great Negotiator blinked!

He cancelled his State of The Nation Address.

We never thought we would see this day!

YEHEYYYY!

Canadian Diplomacy

McCallum.mpg

Canadian Ambassador to China,

John McCallum opines

that Meng Wangzhou has a strong case

on her extradition case.

This is just his opinion

and is not what we can call interference

with the extradition trial.

But some particular noise-makers in Canada

are up in arms calling  McCallum’s opinion

an intervention.

My gosh!

Believe you me.

It is now getting difficult not to call these people

stupid journalists.

(Ooops! Sorry. Pardon me.

Mea Culpa.

I did not mean to say “journalists”.

Slip of the pen, sorry.)

Personally,

this is the first instance within this government

that I have heard something that profuses

with tact and diplomacy.

This John McCallum

is up and starting to be

the accomplished diplomat!

Go, John, damn the torpedoes

Full speed ahead.

You will  get the Canadians out of China yet.

After all

they have yet to pinpoint where

Kim’s nuclear devices were moved to.

And John’s opinion

is precisely according to mine.

Bless his soul!

 

The Huawei Who We?

As if Canada realized that it has been beaten in the game,

it now sounds out the trumpet to call on its big brothers.

A very unwise decision.

This will make matters worse.

What could the others do to influence China?

Impose sanctions on Huawei?

These would easily be countermanded.

Or that company be re-structured and modified.

Canada again does not realize what it is up against.

It has yet to realize

that the US is using Canada as a cannon fodder.

And that efforts to release those Canadians

under Chinese detention are useless.

There is no cause for Meng Wangzhou to be extradited.

They should have known that by now.

But there are valid reasons

why the Canadians should be detained in China.

And if my guess is right,

these reasons are related

to the complete denuclearization of Korea

as was promised by Kim Jong Un.

Perhaps the Canadian News media should stop spinning

and start listening to some other comments.

They don’t put their brains on the noise they make.

Bank of Nova Scotia / Home Equity Bank

 

 

Below is the gist of the email I sent to the address of the President of the

Bank of Nova Scotia to remove my concerns about losing funds due to

improper posting or accounting procedures.

The allegedly missing funds were those sent to Bank of Nova Scotia by

the Home Equity Bank as part of the procedure to avail of the CHIP

Mortgage offered by the latter bank.

I am sure that the Bank of Nova Scotia will be able to prove their side

 and that my concerns are not justified after all.

Till then, I really would like to know

so that my files on this matter will be complete.

 


 

Your phone line is busy.

This is understandable, and is the consequence for this email.

 

Attached is a copy of my Scotia Checking Account covering date

June 16, 2016 ro June 17, 2017 as provided graciously by Nicole.

(This attachment is deleted for security purposes)

 

My issue is that I am presently unable to get Scotiabank departments

to certify where some amounts credited to my accounts are deposited.

 

They are $14,320.82 and $9000, and $119,168.51

 

The amounts in question are considered by your bank departments as

disbursed to Lines of Credit and payments to accounts ordered closed

by my lawyer, Hautmann Law Offfice.

My lawyer can certify that your bank received the money.

Your bank, however, is unable to certify where the money went.

Such a document as the Distribution of the money

was never sent me as required by law.

 

What I need now are copies of the relative account numbers

attributed to me

that shows the amounts have been ENTERED AS CREDITS

and that double entries were not  made

and that the amounts credited are exactly enough

to just close the account when ordered by my lawyer.

Any amounts  in surplus credited to the accounts s

should be reimbursed to me.

This need of mine you would understand

because they are not meager amounts.

Your bank departments in Belmont  Branch and 81st St-118 Ave

both in Edmonton NW

did give up in tracing these amounts

because their computers do not show anything

relative to the transactions on June 16, 2016.

 

Woeful it would be to say that my money is missing

because Scotiabank do not keep records,

or some entries were intentionally edited.

 

My last recorded phone conversation was with JARROT who,

as is customary for Scotiabank employees,

is in a stalling mood.

Since you are President of this bank

which I have been a client for more than 43 years,

you are able to mobilize as much manpower as you need

to cover more area as required to make

the time frame shorter for this investigation.

 

Please note that this email will be published

and any such reply you make to this

may or may not also be published.

You may, however, notify me to go to your branch

at Belmont, Victoria Trail,  Edmonton AB

to receive your verbal reply.

Your phone, and all the other, Scotiabank phones,

are not effective communicators.

 

Note also that what have been found so far regarding this case

I refrain from sending to you

so that you may start your investigation clean and unbiased.

Democrats Grounded

Under the quick order from Trump

a USAF plane bearing some Democrat members of Congress

was grounded.

It seems that no junkets are allowed

while the government is at a shutdown.

While Trump tones down his tantrums

he  starts going on a rampage.

“You no buy, you no fly”

“No pay wall, no play ball”

Huawei Still Under Test

I have already given some hints of what this test is all about.

And sad to say, Canada’s marks are sliding.

The situation is getting out of hand.

Canada’s position is untenable.

Canada’s rule of law is unenforceable in China.

China has its own rule of law.

It is enforceable because it applies to China, within China.

Chinese justice is as fast as judge Roy Bean’s.

Canada’s  lady justice procrastinates.

Blindfolded  she may be, but she lets the scale hang on a hook

because she is too lazy to hold it up.

I have provided here before

 two suggestions as to how to de-escalate the situation.

This is the third suggestion

and it may appeal to the oriental heart,

First, unshackle Meng Wanzhou of all restraints and alerts.

Next, deliver her lock, stock and barrel

to the Chinese Ambassador to Canada.

Then, return her passport and provide her with a plane ticket to Beijing.

Have the Chinese Ambassador vouch for her return to Canada

to face the extradition trial.

It will still be the responsibility of Canada

to abide by the extradition treaty with the US.

And not to worry, Meng Wanzhou will be back to face trial.

I will bet my pair*  that she will.

She is, in fact, of the wealthy class.

By the way,

the rule of War on Drugs is followed to the letter by the Chinese.

They actually went to war against opium exports to China.

Remember the Opium War?

Schellenberg’s  punishment  of 15  years  in prison

was actually too light if only to follow the Chinese rule of law

and was laid down as a boon to the country of Canada.

but now, no more boons.

(*pair of striped shorts)

 

National Emergency?

Declaring a national emergency

from a situation of his own making 

would be the most spectacular goof Trump would ever make.

It would be a media-cre effort to correct things.

I agree that the Border Wall is essential

but not so much as that the lack of it would be

tantamount to danger to national security.

This phrase “national security” has been used by Trump

to scare the Americans that what he dictates should be the law.

Well, it did not work when he declared that Canadians are a

risk to the national security of the United States.

HAH!

Anyway, without the Border Wall, the Mexicans

and the other latinos do not constitute aggressors.

Neither is there an impending invasion.

Sneaking through the border is plain and simple TRESPASSING..

What he could have done now to remedy the situation

is to accept what the Congress offers now

on the condition that Congress considers the wall

to be essential and that he be allowed to raise more money

from somewhere else.

And then he can use his astounding ingenuity to raise money.

That is, after he reopens the government services (drat it!)

Indigenous Nuisance

In all the time I have lived in Canada

I have seen and heard about the indigenous peoples of this country

disrupt the government and business processes

by protests, roadblocks, and rallies.

These events happen with astounding regularity

and woeful consequences

so much so that the sympathy that they received

has been turned to adverse criticism of these peoples.

Now before you start ganging up on me

think of it this way—-

These Indians, bless their survivor efforts,

do spend a lot of time organizing and participating in these

disruptive events to give the implication that they

actually do not work for a living.

The more ugly implication is that they complain about something

when in truth they are asking for something else. 

The point I would like to make is that these Indians

should give something back to Canada

as gratitude for the heavy handouts that they

have received from the working peoples of Canada.

Laws, Treaties, Agreements, Constitution and all that such

do not actually apply to this situation.

Even Human Rights are negated if this is pitted by one group against another.

The rights of Indigenous Peoples is nothing

against the Rights of those

that are responsible for the existence of the country.

What we have here is a conflict between INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS .

One’s rights should be pitted against another.

And as in the case of Indigenous Peoples,

their rights as a group should not be pitted against the majority.

One’s individual  rights supersede any law, treaty or agreement.

A non-indigenous individual’s rights should therefore be pitted

against one indigenous person’s rights.

Not one group against another.

(Confusing, EH?

Not so if you think of YOUR  rights!)

The Huawei Test case Continues

And so the Meng Wanzhou case continues

with explicable consequences

like a new intelligence gathering by abductions.

Canada detains Meng without possession of

valid American extradition papers,

China detains two Canadian citizens,

and Russia enters the scene by abducting Whalen.

These abductions would be more pleasant

should they intend to use vodka, or rice wine, or cognac

instead of water for boarding; in which case the confessions

would be more sufferable and confounded merely

by a few hiccups here and there.

But all kidding aside, this is a test of

how effective the much-vaunted American sanctions can go.

now, it thus appear that American sanctions are effective only

if the countries cooperate in ganging up on the sanctioned party.

Otherwise, like in this instance, only Canada will cooperate in applying

American sanctions.

This is but natural for Canada to cooperate because this is one

country that keeps its word as regards agreements

and treaties which someone we know just breaks with a whim.

American sanctions are not punishable by detentions

and the rest of the world know this.

it is , however, open season for Canadian citizens for abductions.

Sad it is but this is true.

This country knows no enemies.

As a consequence, it has now become a whipping boy

for the rest of the world.

The ugly part of it is that Canada does not fight back.

It has even deferred itself from building

military grade weapons for its own defense.

But iof Canada really wants to end this test case

it should force the Americans to provide papers

to start the extradition trial of Meng Wangzhou.

Remember also that the more the extradition trial is delayed

the more money the lawyers concerned earn in fees

and this for just doing nothing but wait on their haunches.

How much more problems will the Justice Ministry

subject the country to?

Even the Federal Courts are troublesome!

And grandstanding, too.

I give you my first quotable quip—

You take-a my toy top,

I take-a your toy yoyo.

You give me back my toy top,

I think of giving your toy yoyo.

The Wall Street Facade

The Wall Street Enterprise

is about to hit a wall.

Stubbornly, it has survived a lot of these crashes.

Credit is to be given its facade of false charts

which are convincingly put up to rise from

impending doom.

Like the Phoenix.

But there will always be a Wall street

for as long as there is a lust

for the Easy Street.

The Retreat

Erdogan pauses from his trumpeting call

to the world to investigate

Mohammed Bs for

 dismembering  Khashoggi.

Trump recalls his troops from Syria.

Mattis quits.

Turkey moves troops towards Syria.

The Kurds feel abandoned.

Russia starts military maneuvers.

Syria is relieved of foreign mercenaries

supplied and funded by the United States.

Assad prepares to repatriate Syrians.

And pay them for coming back.

Wait till Trump changes his mind!

Montezuma’s Revenge

They call it “Caravan”

I call it Montezuma’s Revenge.

Two kids died acroos the border.

The President  shuts  down   the  government.

Not enough money to build the Wall.

And maybe not enough money

to pay for the government workers.

Congress asks why $5  billion

and not $1.3 billion.

Maybe the American Government is strapped for Cash.

But the Federal reserve can always print money

or that kind which Europe is trying to discard

and which China has a hoard.

I was right again—

when I said America is retreating into a cocoon

by its own doing.

It will still be great, though,

but will be ignored

like the next door bully

with a caravan availing of its outhouses.

(A horse, a horse

my kingdom for a horse!)

 

 

Third Canadian Detained By China

(This post is a new twist

and should twist your minds,

although I assure you that it did not come from a twisted mind!)

Chinese intelligence detains a third Canadian.

Her cell phone number must have been reflected

in any or both of the phones of the other two.

Either this, or she must have been taking pictures

of some sensitive storage sites.

It would be detrimental to the plight of those

now under detention

for the Americans to intervene

because by doing so may remove doubts that

the prisoners are actually working for the

US Intelligence.

The best thing that the Americans could do

is to cancel the request for extradition.

That is, if the Chinese National Security

has not yet been seriously compromised.

In any case, the success of the

US – North Korea Agreement is included in the ante.

(It should not take a great deal of intelligence

to figure out how Intelligence Departments work!)

(EH?)

Ottawa hands out Ice cream To Alberta

Ottawa announced that it is going to help Alberta

to ease out the oil crisis.

Ottawa must think that Albertans were born yesterday

and that an ice cream cone would appease the Albertans.

The “help’ that it announced were actually

due Alberta several months before the crisis,

and even so, it would do little to solve the oil problem.

The amount which is grossly exaggerated is $1.6B,

only $500 million of which may be used sparingly to appease Albertans.

Ottawa should remember that Alberta must have transferred to Ottawa

about 200 times that much over the oil years

And this amount is just a share of the oil resources.

Also, the rhetoric that accompanied the humiliating announcement

just about ensured this government

will not retain its office

come next election.

Alberta is not asking for a handout

nor for more loans that have to be repaid,

it is just asking to be freed from

the federal blockages to its oil industry.

China Keeps Its Heavy Word

China does not issue idle threats.

It only trumpets a heavy word.

And now it has kept it.

A warning was first issued

after Meng Wangzhou was detained in what apeears to be

an arrest without evidence to warrant that arrest,

only confidence that the requesting party

has its wown proof to warrant the arrest.

Kovrig  who once worked fore the Canadian government

was detained by Chinese authorities without a warrant with

but the reason that his employer was not registered.

Afterwards, Spavor who  is mostly connected with North Korea,

was detained with no possible charge but

a national security risk .

An announcement is then made by the Chinese authorities

that  these arrests are  not connected  to

the impending extradition of Meng Wangzhou.

Clearly the Chinese have something heavier than extraditions.

Something that is not commercial, financial,

cultural, political, or whatever.

This would be something that is related to information

regarding the extent of the relationship between the countries

of China and North Korea.

For China now,

I believe that Kovrig and Spavor

are in a very,very serious situation

and the complete release of Meng Wanzhou

will not affect it nonetheless.

Where are these two now?

They are in a Chinese prison,

a close inference of which may be spelled as

L-I-M-B-O

 

Freeland on Extradition.mp4

 

The Big Goof-Up

We Canadians have seen much of foreign journalists srew up

on the news that they actually report askewdly.

(if there is such a word as askewdly, but you know what I mean)

Sad it is to say that Canadians are goofing off right now

in reporting about Meng Wanzhou, and China relatively.

And I will say it outright, the CBC NEWS hosts are too much engrossed

in Canada being a Country of Laws.

I agree, of course, and that is the veritable truth:

Canadians are a nation of Laws.

But then again CBC NEWS ought to know what they are talking about.

This whole Wangzhou affair

has got the Chinese rapping wood on their rafters.

For good reason, nobody is sent to prison there

if one did  not  do  anything  wrong.

Meng  was  sent  to  prison  just  like  that.

And EXTRADITION is new to the Chinese law books.

It is therefore justifiable, for the Chinese

to stick this Canadian guy to prison

without any charges laid

 which we expect to be drummed up soon.

Anyhow, it is a tooth for a tooth, an eye for en eye,

and a jail for a jail with no charges laid.

But let us now see how much CBC NEWS know 

about the Rule of Law in Canada.

For the charge violating the sanctions against Iran,

Canada cannot extradite Meng because

it is America that has the sanctions against Iran.

Canada does not have sanctions against Iran.

For Meng to be extradited, her offense against America

must also be considered an offense in Canada.

This would be the first item that Meng’s defense lawyers would put up.

This is one prime article in the Extradition Treaty between Us and Canada.

And talking about this Extradition treaty,

the US would have only one charge

that may have a slim chance of sticking–

that of Annexes 12 and 16 (specifically annex 16)

which would be the charge of

“Fraud by a banker, agent, or by a director or officer of any company”

But then again, if this happened in Iran

this still will not stick because Canada

does not have any sanctions on Iran.

Canada may take into consideration

that this type of fraud (whatever it is)

may also constitute an offense in Canada,

in which case extradition may be considered.

But then again, it did not happen in Canada

so there.

The question is: will that guy being imprisoned in China

be able to afford a $10 million bail

as an eye for an eye?

 

(to CBC news, read first before you jump)

The Battle of Chosin

The American intrusion across the Yalu River

brought upon their heads

a swarm of Chinese troops about 8 division strong.

And thus started the tragic and most terrible retreat

of the UN police force in North Korea.

The Battle of Chosin.mp4

 

The Huawei Test Case

 

Comes now the biggest and most significant test case

of the much-vaunted American Sanction.

Meng Wanzhou, Chief Financial Officer of Huawei,

and daughter to the founder of this

 very promising electronics company,

was taken into custody by the Canadian Justice Department

in preparation for extradition to the US.

Meng is charged by the US of

violating the US sanctions on Iran.

IMO, since when has it been that the US sanction,

or any sanction by any country,

is enforceable as a criminal offense and as such

deserve imprisonment by the sanctioning country?

By any dictionary which one might use,

the definition of SANCION is simply

the  REMOVAL OF CONSENT, a RESTRAINT,

DISAPPROVAL, or Deem UNAUTHORIZED

those procedures or actions as may be specified.

SANCTION is not a BLOCKADE

 that is legally enforceable with troops or police.

Violating sanctions is not a crime.

The rights of Meng Wanzhou have been violated

when she was taken into custody.

SANCTION may be enforced by economic or political means

but not thru the courts of law or by weapons.

Clearly the Americans are testing how the world

may treat the US sanctions on any country or person.

Also under test is the extradition treaty

between Canada and the US.

(who is paying for the Canadian prosecutors and how much?)
