What was the basis of the so-called “national emergency” which prompted Harper’s illegal act? Canada’s Opposition parties had publicly stated their intention to hold a Parliamentary vote, for the purpose of voting Harper’s corrupt, minority government out of office. While undoubtedly the prospect of being thrown out on his ass was a personal “emergency” for Stephen Harper; there is no possible way in which any rational human being could consider a Parliamentary vote to be “a national emergency”.
There can be no equivocation here. Harper’s demand to illegally suspend Parliament (and thus illegally usurp political power) was an act of treason. Michelle Jean’s choice to rubber-stamp that demand was also an act of treason. While the position of Governor General is largely ceremonial; she had one duty/responsibility to uphold: ensuring that any/all procedural acts in which she participated were legal and constitutional.
No mentally competent adult could have construed Harper’s illegal demand to be a legitimate basis for suspending Parliament. Her decision to rubber-stamp Harper’s demand made her a simple, criminal accomplice to Harper’s overt act of treason.
Arguably, however, these original acts of treason were not the greatest outrages which occurred at that time. The greatest outrages came immediately afterward. Canada’s corrupt Corporate media began a massive campaign to brainwash the Canadian people.
These Liars described the intention of Canada’s Opposition parties to vote the Harper government out of power as “undemocratic”. Again, there can be no equivocation. Voting is THE fundamental act of democracy. Voting is as essential an act for democracy as breathing is for all mammals.
It is impossible for any mentally competent adult to believe voting to be “undemocratic”. While mere lying is not/cannot be the basis for a charge of “treason”; it was the weeks of saturation-lying by the Corporate media which successfully cemented Harper’s original act of treason. They were accomplices in fact, if not in law.
But there was even a greater outrage involved here. The pathetic drones masquerading as the “citizens” of Canada passively accepted those lies, with nary a whimper. In doing so; the residents of Canada conclusively demonstrated that they were no longer citizens at all, but merely serfs.
Being a citizen does not merely confer privileges, it carries responsibilities. While one could construct a fairly lengthy list of such “responsibilities”, paramount on any such list would be the duty of vigilance. When the government of a nation ceases to be legitimate (because of its own treasonous act), and refuses to surrender power; what then?
It is then the duty of all citizens to demonstrate the Power of the People. It begins with public protest. Prying their eyes away from their computer monitors/TV screens, lifting themselves off of their (comfortable) couches – and getting out into the streets. Public protest is the greatest fear of all criminals/tyrants, because (if maintained) it cannot be ignored by any sitting government, nor can it be covered-up by any lying, complicit media.
However there is one duty of being a citizen which is even more fundamental than the duty of vigilance (and protest). Citizens have a duty to think. It is the serf (and only the serf) who passively does whatever he/she is told to do, without thinking. The “citizen” who refuses to use his brain is no longer a citizen.
It is because of this series of outrages that Canada continues to be governed by a totally illegal/illegitimate regime. But wait, shout Harper’s apologists. On May 2, 2011; Harper’s Conservatives “won” a majority in that election, and so now it is a “legitimate” government.
No, it is not.
Apart from the fact that Harper’s previous act of treason personally disqualifies him from any public office (let alone the Prime Minister’s chair); no subsequent election can/could legitimize this illegal regime. The reasoning here is legally and logically irrefutable.
Because of Harper’s prior act of treason; the Conservatives entered that election as the illegal incumbent. Political incumbents win roughly 2/3rds of all elections. Thus Harper’s original act of treason literally doubled his chance of winning the election, and therefore “winning” an election via this large, illegal advantage de-legitimized this Conservative regime – in perpetuity.
As the illegal incumbent; no subsequent election can/could ever remove the stain of Harper’s previous act of treason, and thus transform an illegal government into a “legal” government. The only way, in theory, that the Conservative Party could ever form a legitimate/legal government is by first surrendering the political power which they have illegally usurped, and then getting elected as a non-incumbent (i.e. as an “opposition” party).
Unless/until that happens, the government of Canada – this traitorous, Conservative regime – will remain an illegal government. However, there is still one more essential piece to this narrative, which not only fully explains how and why the Opposition parties were going to vote the Conservatives out of office, it fully defines Stephen Harper as the Canadian traitor that he is.
It is no secret that there is little goodwill between Canada’s opposition parties. Indeed, it was/is their disunity which allowed Harper’s illegal government to achieve its “majority” in the last election, despite only having the support of 4 out of 10 Canadians. So what united these squabbling politicians to the point where they intended to form an official coalition?
Stephen Harper (while still running a minority government) arrogantly attempted to ram-through what he called “electoral reform”. What Harper was really doing was attempting to end all public financing for elections. While the Canadian people (i.e. 30+ million serfs) totally failed to grasp the significance of this monstrous (and traitorous act); the politicians in Canada’s Opposition parties immediately understood Harper’s plan.
With no more public financing for elections; this would allow Canada’s largest corporations (and the ultra-wealthy people who own these corporations) to simply buy the government of their choice, through drowning-out any and all other candidates with their ability to finance unlimited/infinite “campaign advertising” (i.e. propaganda). Obviously if the Corporate media can (and did) convince Canada’s serf-population that voting is “undemocratic”, that same propaganda machine can get these same serfs to vote for whoever they are told to vote for.
Which party do all of Canada’s large corporations (and the Corporate media) support, with unswerving loyalty? Harper’s corrupt Conservatives. The “electoral reform” which Harper tried to implement would have (effectively) permanently ended Canada’s democracy, and guaranteed corrupt, Conservative rule, forever.
More than any other act; this defines Stephen Harper as the irredeemable traitor that he is. Of course any Canadians who have actually been paying attention during Harper’s reign of error would also be aware of several, other treasonous acts:
1) Along with his hand-picked stooge, Mark Carney; Harper has deliberately destroyed the value of the Canadian dollar. Put another way; the collapse of the Loonie under Stephen Harper is roughly equal to the current collapse of the Russian ruble – which the entire world refers to as “a currency crisis”.
2) He signed a “military cooperation” deal with the U.S. which surrenders Canada’s sovereignty to the U.S. government. The U.S. military is now legally allowed to enter Canada to conduct military operations (i.e. wage war), without obtaining the consent of Canada’s government.
3) Harper is giving away our most-precious natural resource (tar-sands oil) as fast as he can, as cheaply as he can. Canada is currently losing as much as $50 per barrel on every barrel of tar-sands oil it ‘sells’ to the U.S.
Those are only Harper’s most obvious, treasonous acts. He has also totally undermined the Canadian financial system, destroyed Canada’s trade-surplus, destroyed Canada’s budget-surplus, deliberately duplicated the U.S.’s “housing bubble” in Canada, and entrenched the “bail-in” (simple, naked, stealing by the Big Banks) into our political/legal system.
Not only does Canada have an illegal government; it has a traitorous government intent on destroying Canada. Stephen Harper does not serve the Canadian people. Stephen Harper has never served the Canadian people. He has only one Master, and his name is “Uncle Sam”.
