Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook – Connie Fogal – ad libs Feb. 5, 2007

Thank God for Jean Chretien! Six years into the disaster on wheels to south of us, the former democratic nation of the United States of America, Canadians should be lighting candles of thanks that the former prime minister, despite his myriad political failings, had the good sense to maintain a semblence of independence in Canada's foreign police by keeping the country out of the bloody conflagration in Iraq. Sadly, he sacrificed the continuous rotation of nearly three thousand Canadians to sustain the illegal occupation of Afghanistan, another disastrous project of George W. Bush's administration. Unbelievably though, the inheritors of the keys to Sussex Drive are eager to enjoin more closely Canada's ties to Empire America.

Clever Conservative Party leader, Stephen Harper, his own ascension to power in this country contingent on massive support by agents of the U.S. regime, and his own averred adherence to that regime's militarist philosophy, is determined to carry forward the long-dreamed, in some quarters, political and economic integration of the North American continent; hitching his poltical wagon, and your children's future, to the shooting star of a doomed empire.

Connie Fogal is the leader of the Canadian Action Party. CAP has been at the fore of the fight being waged by those Canadian citizens who believe Canada should remain independent of the elephant to the south, especially in matters of foreign military adventures. Connie Fogal on the conspiracies and less so of a North American Union in the first half.

And; they blazed into Washington riding a wave of voter revulsion of the incumbent government. Scandals of epic, unprecedented dimension are the hallmark of the Bush administration, and now, with majority control of both houses of Congress, the Democratic Party is in a position to initiate, impanel, and chair congressional committees to begin the long process of redress for a criminal conspiracy centred at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and so far responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands, and the pilfering of untold billions of dollars from the U.S. treasury. David Swanson is the Washington director of Democrats.com and ImpeachPAC.org, and co-founder of the groups, After Downing street.org and Meet with Cindy.org. David Swanson and an accounting of the 110th Congress of the United States of America in the second half.

And; Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the good things you can get up to in and around Victoria in the coming week. But first, Connie Fogal and shining a light on the dark corners of the deep integration.

Gorilla Radio – Chris Cook with Stanley Lahan January 29, 2007

Where are the millions that were once in the streets?

Stanley Laham is the author of, 'The Taking of Tigert Hall – Reminiscences from a Bygone Era', an examination of resistance then and now with Stanley Laham.

Craig Murray: Torture and The "War on Terror"

Send The Shrub Your Mail!

My dander is up like it hasn’t been for… a week… maybe less! This is the last straw… until the next one. I am outraged. George W. Bush has pulled another fast one on Congress and the American public.

You ever notice the insatiable appetite of the hard-core criminal. He is driven to commit new and more bizarre crimes. For the garden-variety crook, perpetrating new crimes is a necessary and heady stimulus… like good Tequila Boilermaker. Si! Tiempo para una mas tequila y cerveza!

Bush and the F – Word Part Two

The Bush administration’s overall record in 2006 was one of public manipulation for the benefit of crony capitalism and imperial overreach. Can the 110th Congress stop them in 2007?<br><br>

The pessimistic view is that Bush has nothing left to lose anyway, so will crash and burn the country in the next two years, much as he did many business ventures in the past.<br><br>

He’ll let the economy melt and watch as Americans struggle to stay afloat. He’ll attack Iran, increase troop presence in the Middle East and bring back the draft. He’ll roll back more civil rights in the name of national security, women’s rights in the name of God. He’ll pin all of the above on the Democrats come 2008.<br><br>

Pessimistic? Yes.

Bush and the F – Word Part one

by Heather Wokusch

It's not overstating the case to say that 2007 could be make or break for US democracy.<br><br>

The Bush administration's cutbacks and rollbacks in 2006 were so frequent and so egregious that many Americans stopped paying attention, gave up hope or else failed to see the onslaught as part of a larger pattern.<br><br>

Which brings up the f-word.

I Smell A Rat!

by Tom Chartier<br><br>

Can you smell it too? For a moment I thought it was the mangrove swamp.
<br><br>
Time to find out what’s polluting the shades of America. It’s been stinking up the U.S…. and the world… for six years now. How could anybody miss it? It’s reeking to high Heaven. Behold: a monstrous Rodentia Giganticus that chews glass and eats its young.
<br><br>
Folks, what we have here is a massive scam that’s just like all the others our government has been pulling on the taxpayers since… well, let’s just go back as far as 2000 when our Dear Leader, Bush 43 (George W. Bush), was handed the presidency by Bush 41’s (that would be Bush The First, George H.W.) supreme court.
<br><br>
We have been — and are still being — scammed.
