Canada's prime minister wants to make it harder for people to vote against him, with the new, and blatantly unfair Fair Elections Act

Stephen Harper, who won by an uncomfortably small margin in the last election, has passed laws that may keep voters who oppose him from the polls

Harper has pushed through a series of legal changes spearheaded by the perversely named Fair Elections Act.

The Fair Elections Act strips Elections Canada, the nonpartisan government body responsible for administering elections, of its authority to actively encourage citizens to vote.

Unbelievable, instead, on voting day, incumbent candidates (not Elections Canada) will appoint polling supervisors.

Then there is the muzzling of the chief electoral officer, restricting the role to speaking publicly on just five ‘safe’ topics such as ‘how to become a candidate’ and ‘how to cast a ballot’.

The chief electoral officers loses the power to alert the public to problems during an election and to raise awareness of the electoral process, particularly to “persons and groups most likely to experience difficulties in exercising their democratic rights”

These very groups - indigenous peoples, the disabled, students living away from home and transients, are not traditionally Harper supporters.

Harper also cut Elections Canada’s budget by 8%

In addition, Elections Canada’s investigations arm (which investigates election fraud) has been cut. This is relevant because the Conservative Party has a history of dirty electoral tricks. In 2011, a Conservative political consulting firm and party staffer were found guilty of making thousands of misleading, automated phone calls directing non-Conservative voters to the wrong polling stations.

Harper has also increased the maximum donations by 20%!

Harper must go. Almost 40% of eligible voters did not vote last time. This legislation is geared to increase election non-participation.

The Harperman Protest song is getting great reviews in Canada, and outside of it.

Up to 70 per cent of Australian jobs could be at threat as a new wave of automation sweeps the world's workplaces

Pricewaterhouse Cooper (PwC) says 44% — over 5 million current Australian jobs — are at high risk of being affected by computerisation and technology over the next 20 years.

But director of digital at CSIRO Adrian Turner said 70 per cent of today's workforce could be at risk in the years to come.

This change is expected within 20 years. Where is the money to come from to support infrastructure and government services with the anticipated massive escalation in job losses?

Current job losses and underemployment are due to a combination of outsourcing and automation. Automation and the use of intelligent robots is expected to rise rapidly.

This article suggests that medicine and IT are safe options. Other articles indicate that jobs in education, health, law and IT development are all at risk of being curtailed due to the rise of the intelligent robotics era.

Passing pro-corporate globalist trade pacts will only hasten the painful, poverty inducing descent into corporate feudalism. It is unlikely that robots or their wealthy powerful owners will shed a tear over the poor and disempowered.

Harperman - Canadian protest song performance.

Harperman was written and sung by singer-songwriter-environmental scientist, Tony Turner; who was subsequently sent home from his government job cause government did not want him to voice his criticism of Harper government.

Demonstrating the Streisand effect; since his suspension - the song is gaining rapidly in popularity. It is currently trending on Twitter.

Tony Turner did not sing alone. This is an awesome performance by him and concerned members of his church. (You may have the urge to sing along.)

Canadian Federal scientist put on leave over Harperman protest song - Harperman

Environment Canada staffer Tony Turner wrote and performed anti-Tory song - which is increasing in popularity - especially as the Canadian government suspended him from his job for doing it.

Apparently free speech is only theoretical in Canada, under the Harper government. 😶

Bernie Sanders Gets Stamp of Approval From Cornel West

Cornel West, the influential scholar and civil rights activist says Bernie Sanders has been an ally in the fight for justice over the years, and that his voice needs to be heard.

This is an important signal to Black Americans. 

Members of the BLM movement have disrupted 2 of Bernie Sanders rallies (which is bizarre given he supports their issues).

It has been reported that BLM is receiving considerable funding from George Soros (who also backs Hilary Clinton).
Read up on George Soros, and his his NGOs.
Suggest you also read up on Hilary Clinton and so called "Smart Power".

There are allegations that under the false flag of democracy, and as a form of "smart power"; so called democracy NGOs are assuming much of the CIAs role in toppling foreign governments that are not held in favour by the US government. (These are typically socialist governments that don't allow corporate raiding of national resources).

Regime change is initiated covertly by magnifying points of dissatisfaction, and inciting civil unrest.

Generally vocal leaders who oppose the government (etc) are influenced to take action. They are (at least initially) often unaware that they are being manipulated. If they are incited to do something illegal, then the Psyops group have power over them.

When plots to topple governments are successful, a (commonly authoritarian) puppet regime is put in place. If it fails, it is commonly followed by ongoing violent unrest and civil war that disempowers the target government.

CIA and NGO based psyops guerrillas certainly have the expertise to disrupt and cause civil unrest. (The CIA has written a "How To manual".) The Stratfor leaks indicated that there are professionals with expertise in doing this.

The disruption of Sanders rallies by BLM activists is regarded by some as political sabotage. 

Cornel West's endorsement of Bernie Sanders is important; because no one is paying for his support - and he is a well known expert in the civil rights issues central to the BLM movement.

Cornel West’s endorsement is a valuable one for Bernie Sanders, who has been gaining ground in recent polls but who has faced protests from Black Lives Matter activists who have said he is not sufficiently supportive of their cause.

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire
Introduction

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire

Like many others, I've only recently awakened to the assault on democracy and civil liberties the world over.

The Blogs I post are for educational purposes - to inform the public of relevant details regarding the truth of what is happening in governments the world over - and to encourage positive peaceful change. 

An informed public is powerful. But authoritarian rulers do not want the public to be informed. They lie, deceive, mislead and operate in secrecy to hide actions that would alarm or disgust the public and/or are not to the benefit of the public. 

Informing the public of the truth has become a battle between right versus might; truth versus lies and deception; transparency versus secrecy and coverups.

Democracy and civil liberties are under fire from within in many countries - by some of our own elected representatives, as well as some powerful government administrators and those in power in the military-industrial-surveillance complex - who want to consolidate and grow their power base nationally and internationally. 

Mass surveillance, propaganda, censorship and entrenched government secrecy are being used to disempower the public and provide the power elite with unwarranted authority and control over the public. 

Democracy and civil liberties are also under threat from the masterminds behind the financial sector - whose deliberate, calculated wheeling and dealing has likely resulted in the rise and fall of economies. These money monarchs likely also have substantial control over governments the world over because of what they can do that would influence the value of investments or level of loans of various countries. 

The political whipping system is another major threat to the democratic process - that should be seriously curtailed or abolished. 

The consequence of these factors has been evolution of so-called democratic governments run by administrations who dance to the tune of the rich and powerful and ignore the consequences of policies and law changes on the general public. 

We are being more and more ruled by an elite group who would lie to and deceive the public without blinking an eye, turn a blind eye to wrong-doing, and who are lacking in trustworthiness and integrity. Knowledge based on truth brings power. This Blog is about raising awareness of the true consequences of government policies, actions and law changes - and to encourage a focus on policies actions and law respectful of democracy, civil liberties and human rights.

All that is required for evil to take hold and grow is to: close your eyes, block your ears, shut your mouth - and do nothing.

Bragging rights
My eyes have been opened - and I want to help others see.
