Ding Dong.. the premier is gone!!!!

Can’t write, I am actually in tears. No, I’m not kidding. I watched it through tears of joy. One down.. more to go and next on my ‘ personal ‘  list is the man responsible for much of the financial secrecy in the Ministry of Transportation, Kevin Falcon.

Note to Falcon : Stop sounding so smug on the radio right now. You’re next. Then Ms. Shirley Bond.

    Thank God! I believe the real puppet masters have had enough and felt that Gordo and cronies were attracting too much attention. Inquiring minds, BT, LY, BCM, among others, were making things uncomfortable. Now if we could only have someone in the halls of power that has been instilled with some moral teachings that could help with in-depth inquiries re: BCRail, S2S, Port Mann, just to name a few. I continue to PRAY…

    The night of the last provincial election, I sat in on the chat session one of the bloggers hosted as the results came in. I remember you were so upset that you vowed to run in the next election (I hope you are still considering doing that). It would be the height of poetic justice if the story you broke on the shadow tolls was the was the straw that broke the Campbell’s back.

    Keep up the good work, Laila. It’s starting to pay off.

    I guess Campbell heard that a number of his caucus cohorts had gone shopping at The House Of Knives in preparation for the quickly called meeting by Van Dongen. We know he didn’t suddenly develop a conscience.

    It will be interesting to see who the Howe Streeters annoint as their next frontperson. My money is on Dianne Watts because she strikes me as the female version of Gordo.

    As the old saying goes, be careful what you wish for!
    He needed to be gone for sure but in true Gordon Campbell style he left his party holding the bag. And who among them is smart enough or untainted enough to do it? No one on my radar.
    Is Carole James the answer?
    Who in the liberal party is going to want to take the job even given the situation? I’m sure Coleman would or Falcon but neither of these posses the leadership abilities or intelligence required. who then will run the province for the next two years?
    All bets seem to be on Diane Watts, ask yourself if you were her would you leave her position that she has rightfully built for herself to become an opposition leader for eternity as chief of a sunken Liberal party?
    This is a mess we may never resolve in our lifetimes and the cornerstone of it all has conveniently just dropped out.

    Diane in my opinion, would carry on with Campbell and company’s ways.

    What we the citizens must do, is continue to get to the bottom of the secret deals that have been made, following through with the recalls, and referendum. We cannot be sidetracked by this corrupt government and their friends and think because their leader steps aside, that things will change . Not.

    It is an attempt , in my opinion, to put us off from continuing with the good work that Laila, Mary, Grant, Ian etc have done and exposing what this party has really done to our province and our assets. There’s more than gordo involved. What do I keep hearing? Follow the money.

    In the Vancouver Sun this morning, the implications of GMC resigning so quickly, but before doing so, acted on his own to hamstring the next BC Liberal leader by having implemented a complete overhaul of all ministries, made a 15% cut in personal taxes, and how the HST initiative vote will be handled makes me aware of just how much this man had his finger on the pulse that went down while he was Premier.

    BC Rail comes to mind, immediately, and the fact that, as Defense Lawyer Kevin McCulough often said “the fix was in”. Tell me again Premier Gordon Muir Campbell who said to pay off Dave Basi and Bobby Virk to keep the trial to its final bitter end? Why allow Martyn Brown and Brian G. Kenning to be roasted on the stand? Why cave in on the eve of Gary Collins taking the stand?

    Billy, the least Campbell should be doing re: Bilderberg is repaying the 16+ Thousand dollars of OUR money he used to go there! It was a “personal” invitation to him alone, no one else was allowed to tend with him…and he is NEVER allowed to speak of what he heard there. How does that serve us? It doesn’t.

    We don’t know who he’s serving, but no matter who it is – he does NOT have the right to use our money for personal meetings not related to provincial business. If he states it was provincial business, then he better be coughing up with minutes of the meeting to prove it. Or – repay the money. I’m sure Mr. Rockefeller won’t mind.

    I think everyone including his own party are shocked and don’t know how to deal with this guy, this is anything but rational, has he lost it?
    Is this a strategy to try and stifle the recall process? To buy time and then announce later he’s staying?

  23. “Billy” – You seem to have an impacted gland where your brain should be. My original comment was a joke that you obviously didn’t get because you seem to take everything literally, and still don’t get it. The point being, unless he is locked in a dungeon or offed, it doesn’t seem likely he is going anywhere, AND, he has pretty well hamstrung whomever succeeds him – in other words the control freak is holding onto the reins as long as he can. My second response was to call you on you nerve of accusing me of being gauche – so I extended it to allow you too to be in the convertible.

    As to “Gordo and his policies have actually been responsible for the death of people in my region, thus to many of us it is fucking personal…………”

    That obviously isn’t referring to any cases that have been proven in a court of law – as if there were courts of law in the banana republic of BeeCee that actually dispensed justice anyway. Not only have Gordo’s policies been responsible for local UNECESSARY deaths, mainly due to the withdrawal of medical services within reasonable distances and times (hospital closures, removal of services at the remaining facilities, the starving of ambulance services in the hinterlands) but untold unnecessary suffering and expense have been wreaked on people as well. Well, when people suffer and or die as the result of another’s actions – IT IS PERSONAL. And eventually if the people cannot resolve inequity and find justice through civil and/or political means, eventually the people’s limits will be reached and stuff happens. As Thomas Jefferson and his colleagues wrote almost 250 years ago:

    ….Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, ……………….

    ………..But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” – 1776

    It is no accident that the emerging plutocracies here and to the south are building the power of the police, but there are ultimately more of us than them and a well armed power is eventually helpless when it is wrong and in the minority as the French found out in Algeria, the US in Vietnam and the Soviet Union all over its periphery.

    For now too many people are satisfied with trinkets, flat screen TeeVees, cars and boats and fast food – but when a critical mass can’t find a roof to watch their HD TeeVee beneath or afford gas to run their toys etc. the plutocrats will have to run for their lives – when there is nothing left to eat (except cake) EAT THE RICH!

    A couple of things come to mind, in the entertainment business there is a saying. Death is easy comedy is hard.
    And…
    Ten thousand comics out of business and you’re trying to be funny.
    So lets see if I’ve got this straight… Your “idea” of a joke is to suggest the death of someone you have a grudge against, whatever the reason of the grudge. Don’t even begin to try to gloss over your asinine statement.

    Is this yet another “example” of your idea of a joke?

    “Billy” – You seem to have an impacted gland where your brain should be
    You have the audacity to bray jackass like, “…you obviously didn’t get because you seem to take everything literally, and still don’t get it.”

    You, no doubt, will continue exhibiting the behaviours of a presumptuous ass and in doing so miss entirety the reality of cotemporary New World Order politicing .

    Skipping ahead to “…when people suffer and or die as the result of another’s actions – IT IS PERSONAL.” And the penny just dropped on that? Sheesh!
    But it goes much deeper Kootcoot and you have even scratched the surface!
    Try and get your pea sized brain around the fact that Campbell was being scouted for the premiership when he was mayor of Vancouver.

    That Bilderberg Boogie Campbell was invited to was, as they all are, the planning ground for future plan.

    Your asinine focus on Campbell totally ignores the puppet masters and they will have several other options lined up to carry out their agendas.
    Jesus Jumping Christ and you have the gall to claim I don’t get it.

    Don’t be holding your hand over your ass while waiting for some grand awakening from the sheople,

  25. I certainly don’t feel Campbell is the center of all evil and the only person of concern. If you could actually read and comprehend instead of trying to present yourself as the only person here that actually knows what is going on it would be clear to you that my original comment re: the grassy knoll was a humorous way to point out that HE REALLY ISN”T GONE and isn’t going anywhere soon and ultimately it doesn’t matter as he is only the figurehead for the local B.C. chapter of a cancer on the face of the earth or the greed is good club.

    So Mr. “Billy” as far as I’m concerned you are an ass and whether you get anything or not, you certainly have a hard time understanding what anyone else says. But that isn’t suprising because it is obvious you feel that you and only you around here anyway, actually “get it” so why even attempt to comprehend what anyone else has to say?

    If you hadn’t noticed “Your “idea” of a joke is to suggest the death of someone you have a grudge against,” has become part of the normal dialogue (see Sharon Angle’s call for 2nd Amendment solutions, or half of what comes out of Tundra Trailer Thrash Barbie’s mouth or Glenn Beck, O’Really and Limpballs) and there is no Reich Wing copyright on that sort of black humour!

    “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence … It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly-knit, highly-efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed not published. It’s mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced not praised. No expediture is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” John F. Kennedy

    If one is ever to comprehend the gravity of the circumstances they live under they will be required to fully acknowledge the above words of John F. Kennedy
    “Think globally, act locally” By all means necessary replace those “over” us with those who truly work in our stead. In order for that action to be done the type of thinking required cannot be the type of thinking that created our present governance which I see as follows;

    “To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be place under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.”

    Campbell was never the “problem” The “problem” with politics has as more to do with the electorate than with the elected.

    Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.

    While i am not a Liberal supporter,as long as Ms. James is running the NDP i wont be an NDP supporter either. But now that Campbell is stepping down do you think a forensic audit would be possible to find out what,where,when and to whom Campbell sold our province to?Also i would like to ask since when is the Deputy Chief of staff hire people for the ministers didnt they always hire their own or use the ones that were already in that position,and for the pay and expense account i think it rivals some presidents.Who is she and how did she come to have so much power no one seems to know or are willing to say anything about her. The newspapers would have had a field day with the NDP or any other goverment that has done so much harm to the province. Where are they,I have lost all respect for reporters and TV news,they dont deserve to call themselves professionals.
