War on drugs

Human rights: ‘only for good guys’
.
Help end addiction  war on drugs,  corruption and child abuse   crackdown on illegal drugs . The Philippines’s  President Rodrigo Duterte came to power on his promise to crack down on crime. Shabu is the Philippines slang term for the highly addictive crystal methamphetamine which is the most popular illegal drug in the country. Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte  says try drugs themselves to fully grasp the seriousness of the problem.
.
Duterte’s dirty drug war Philippines Police figures show 7,042 people have been killed during the campaign, 2,250 in anti-drugs operations. teams are coordinated to execute a list of targets: suspected drug users, dealers and criminals. “We are not that bad policemen or bad individuals. We are just a tool, we are just angels that God gave talent to, you know, to get these bad souls back to heaven and cleanse them.” pending cases that identified hardened criminals on drugs and hardened murderers, we are going to have to neutralise them  The team investigates the individuals to determine whether they are involved in drug dealing or other illegal activities, whether they are “God-fearing” or a “parasite”, and then acts accordingly. 
.
The police have been given a licence from the president to crack down on drugs and crime.  Of the 3,600-plus deaths so far, 1,375 have been killed in above-board police operations, while about 2,233 more have been put down to vigilantes  Duterte,  So far he appears to have the public on his side – a July poll by Pulse Asia Research showed his approval rating at 91%. It is not also easy to disregard the success of the anti-illegal drug trade campaign 
.
The   Philippines is showing initial success in eradicating the drug menace and in preventing the Philippines from becoming a Narco-state. President Duterte’s war against illegal drug trade has reduced criminality by 50% nationwide, and with its limited resources the government has placed the drug addicts in rehabilitation centers.
.
Japan PM offers Philippines drug war support  “As the Philippines pursues its campaign to destroy the illegal drug trade apparatus, we welcome the expression of interest of Japan to support measures to address the tremendous social cost of drug addiction,” Duterte has said he will not stop the crackdown until every last drug-related drug criminal is dead.
.
NOW the Philippines’ policy has helped restore law and order to the country; while Canada, the US has been too soft. In the U.S.,  drug users “don’t go to prison,” claiming that by failing to crack down on people with “marijuana cigarettes,” the government has allowed the illegal drug trade to flourish.
 .
Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive drug seeking and drug use, despite harmful consequences. It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to many harmful, often self-destructive, behaviors. Such self-destructive behaviors, in the case of addiction to drugs, also lead to the destruction of the family, which spells danger and doom to any nation – the family being the basic unit of society. Strong, healthy families constitute a solid foundation, like a rock, assuring a nation’s vibrant future.

 And meanwhile  in Canada
.
Booze, drugs and smokes: Canada is 23rd on Global Vice Index
.
Concerns about drugs prompt street security .More enforcement of drug laws.“We need zero tolerance for drug dealers, they are just preying on the most vulnerable of people,” . The police have issued a warning that a tainted batch of heroin or fentanyl may be making its way around the area.   The deaths were linked to fentanyl . Most people who overdose on fentanyl have been taking heroin or other opioids. The drug has also been found linked to cocaine and methamphetamine, but that is less common, he said.  Drug overdose deaths double in 2016 Some British Columbians support the idea to try to stem the growing number of deaths caused by overdoses of fentanyl, which is often mixed into streets drugs such as heroin and cocaine. But others oppose using public funds to buy drugs for those already suffering addictions.
.
Organized crime groups and gangs in Canada are more likely to produce and traffic drugs such as crystal methamphetamine and cocaine than they are cannabis,  organized crime groups were linked to 75 percent of all heroin-trafficking cases, 62 percent of all cocaine-trafficking cases, and 60 percent of all methamphetamine-trafficking cases; they were linked to 39 percent of all cannabis-trafficking cases, and to just 6 percent of all cannabis cultivation cases.  This contradicts common Royal Canadian Mounted Police wisdom and that the researchers’ definition of “organized crime” – three or more people who commit a serious crime to profit – is misleading.
.
There is also a  lot of marijuana around, but estimates of usage are unreliable given the legal environment surrounding marijuana use. The central question in this disturbing situation is what effect will marijuana legalization have on this serious drug problem?
.
Heroin abuse is tightly tied to prescription drug abuse. Almost half of people addicted to heroin are also addicted to painkillers. People are 40 times more likely to be addicted to heroin if they are addicted to prescription painkillers. Abuse of prescription painkillers is incredibly common . While it’s true that heroin abuse has skyrocketed in the last years, prescription drug abuse is more common. The number of overdose deaths from prescription pain medication is larger than those of heroin and cocaine combined.
.
Most addiction programs do not work.
.
Researchers with personal financial ties to pharmaceutical companies tend to publish studies casting those companies’ drugs in a positive light 76 per cent of the studies that cast the drugs in a positive light were led by investigators that had direct financial ties to the companies producing the drugs. By contrast, only 49 per cent of the negative studies had lead investigators with a monetary tie to the drug companies in question.

Mountie faces second impaired driving charge

but the RCMP had said there are no RCMP alcholics, or less than a handful?

He has been a constable in the RCMP for about 16 years, according to RCMP, and has been on medical leave since the first incident. and has been an Alcoholic now for how many years as well? and his supervisors now as well?

 RCMP officer charged with impaired driving Vancouver Sun
CTV British Columbia – The Province – News1130 
   
When the too often immoral, lying RCMP Public relationship department tells the public that there are on the average only 3 alcoholic RCMP offices in Canada per year and we have had more than that Number RCMP officers caught drunk driving this year.. We have had news media report of some Police officers in BC now getting drunk often after work even in the Police stations and likely driving home as well. It is an undeniable fact that Police taverns are often filled with police officer after the shift has ended, and likely many of them drive home drunk.. but it is the citizens that seem to mostly end up on drunk charges in the court and mostly natives now as well.. 
 
 Certainly do not believe that all justice  is even best carried out, being done in the Queen’s courts, or by the too often  rigged Commissions, masturbating self regulating societies? How often do you even see bad lawyers, bad cops, bad RCMP, bad professionals, bad Politicians, bad alcoholics IN CANADA get their rightful dues now? Very rarely!!  
  

Vancouver Mountie faces second impaired driving charge in two months The Canadian Press  VANCOUVER, BC – A Mountie in Vancouver is facing his second impaired driving charge in two months. Vancouver police say they pulled the off-duty officer over Saturday morning and breath samples showed he was over the legal limit for blood alcohol. The 55-year-old officer, whose name has not been released, (But yours likely would be posted) already had a court date from a previous impaired driving charge and was prohibited from driving for 90 days. He’s now been charged with driving while prohibited, impaired driving and driving with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit. ( He likely also is still getting paid as a Mounties too) He is the latest in a number of Metro Vancouver police officers who have faced impaired driving charges in the last two years, including a Mountie charged in a Delta, B.C., crash that killed a 21-year-old motorcyclist in October 2008. The officer in that case, Cpl. Benjamin Monty Robertson, was the one who gave the order to use a Taser on Robert Dziekanski before the Polish man died at Vancouver airport in October 2007.

 

RCMP officer arrested 2nd time for drunk driving in Vancouver CBC.ca  The off-duty Mountie was arrested Saturday morning after a Vancouver police officer watched a man urinate in the Spanish Banks parking lot on N.W. Marine Drive and then get into a vehicle and attempt to drive away.After the Vancouver officer stopped the vehicle and identified the man as an RCMP officer, the man failed to pass a breathalyzer test, said police. Vancouver police are recommending he face charges of driving while prohibited, impaired driving and driving with blood-alcohol exceeding 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. He was released and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 8. The 55-year-old officer, assigned to RCMP’s E Division headquarters, was previously arrested Oct. 3 after an accident on the Second Narrows Bridge, said police. In that incident, police suspended his licence and recommended charges of impaired driving. He was scheduled to appear in court Nov. 20 in that case. The officer’s name has not yet been released because the Crown counsel has not yet approved a criminal charge from either of the two incidents, ( because Crown counsel is also an acoholic?)  but police did say the man has been a member of RCMP for 16 years and has been on medical leave since the October incident. Impaired driving is the No.1 criminal cause of death in Canada ( note not speeding) . “As police officers, we have seen first-hand the carnage and death caused by this irresponsible behaviour. This makes it all the more difficult when an incident involves one of our own.” ( and it occurs too often now too) -Go to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Pull his Licence. Take his badge end of story.   These types of police officers bring a bad image to the rest of the force, which as a whole, does a very good job. So this suspended officer, has been caught again, and then he is released, and after having an accident in the first incidence. This person should be held in custody, he is obviously a danger to the public and to himself. Are there two sets of laws? What a shame, however, he MUST be held to the same standard as any other person in Canada. Peace Officers need to be beyond reproach, and in the case of the RCMP as of late, even more so.  I also would like to know why no charges have been filed from the first incident??? Seems odd to me. Twice eh? Wonder if the Crown will approve the charges? If it was me, Im sure charges will already be laid and my name all over the local papers. Medical leave my arse,…. what his medical condition….hungover?
 
 

 
Hey, RCMP officers, when will you wake up from drunkenness? The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), colloquially known as Mounties, is the national police force of Canada. RCMP officers should be the representatives of responsibility, dignity, honesty, and honour. Some BC Lower Mainland’s police officers really smeared the image of RCMP in people’s minds. In two years, five Lower Mainland RCMP officers faced charges of drunk driving. On Oct. 4, 2009, Sunday, around 4:20 a.m., the fifth officer, who works at the RCMP’s Vancouver headquarters, was arrested for impaired driving after his car hit a cement barrier near the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. Two passengers on his car were sent to hospital and the driver failed the alcohol test on the scene. He was off-duty that time. The other four drunk driving cases the Lower Mainland RCMP officers involved in were: On Sept. 25, an officer from Coquitlam of BC was charged with impaired driving after being stopped by policemen of his own police bureau. Last November, one of the four officers involved in Robert Dziekanski’s stun-gun case was arrested for drunk driving after he hit and killed a young motorcyclist in Delta of BC. Near the end of 2007, Cpl. Darren Baker and Const. Kulwant Singh Malhi were charged with impaired driving in West Vancouver and Richmond of BC respectively. What’s wrong with the RCMP officers of BC Lower Mainland? Come on. Please don’t ruin people’s trust anymore.
http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/4333290-whats-wrong-with-mounties
  
 
Charges have been stayed for an RCMP officer accused of driving drunk and fleeing after a fender-bender three years ago. Const. Kulwant Singh Malhi, 43, was charged in 2008 with failure to stop at an accident, impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.  The charges were stayed by a judge in B.C. Provincial Court in Richmond Thursday on the third and final day of Malhi’s trial. Malhi remains suspended with pay and a Code of Conduct investigation is under way.

Why heart attacks often kills still

Hospital

Congestive heart failure, Coronary artery disease, Hypertension, Mitral valve collapse, Arrhythmias, Atrial fibrillation , Angina,  Cardiomyopathy, Heart attacks, Strokes, High cholesterol all likely can be effectively treated if we had a more competent, compassionated medical care system firstly..  On top of that as I know first hand and often, the quality of services you get THERE TOO depends on the quality of the doctor himself, and half of them, the clearly really poor ones should be employed for a start elsewhere, and have half of their salary cut as well next rightfully too. Too many medical professionals initially do not spot serious heart problems, even heart attacks still in reality for  Doctors, nurses mostly still do have to do a real medical test, even a blood work to tell if  ANY person is really having a heart attack, heart problems! The basic xray test  will not realy indicate at all if a person is having heart problems as well, more serious medical testing is required . Interpretation of the scans, results are very crucial, and on the interpretation side, there is also a very wide range of quality or accuracy, in reality. Even 90 percent poor ones.  Now  doctors can make an extra $500,000 to $1 million a year simply by acquiring their own  scanner that next still give poor results, for often  they are not even competent to interpret accurately the results.. only the  competent Cardiologists tend to understand heart problems.. and not the rest of the doctors.. and that is why it is so hard to get to see a good competent Cardiologist.   

Some things seem to never change, such as cold calloused, pretentious Ministers, Health Ministers included who really do not care if the others live or die, as long as they alone survive  it seems still too. I could not help but notice and read the great newspaper articles about heart care tips.. but what about all of those people where these tips are too late and the mostly pretentious health care is not there for them.. face it to get get real health care you have to get the attention of the emergency department, triage  care givers, that is if you can get past those preeminent security guards there, too often pretentious triage nurses, who screen all the patients firstly. and if you still are not dumb to recognize that now hiring 12 nurses who get the same pay as one doctor cannot, do not make up, compose one qualified medical doctor firstly as well. Nurses have 2 years of training while doctors have at least a decade, so they the real doctors do have both a deeper and wider applicable   knowledge base too. 

 SINCE I DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT PLEASING ANYONE OR OFFENDING THEM, I do not need to spin anytting too and  I CAN TELL THE TRUTH TO ALL EVEN ABOUT HOW TO SAVE MEDICARE DOLLARS. CHARGE CARD HAPPY DOCTORS ARE BLEEDING THE MEDICAL CARE SYSTEM TO DEATH BY THEIR TOO OFTEN POOR AND PRETENTIOUS SERVICES NOW STILL TOO, EVEN  IN MY OWN DIRECT MEDICAL EXPERIENCES. http://pbulow.tripod.com/health.htm 

 
 
Now from years of experience I do also next a Hospital tour. I walk around the hospitals and observe how many hospital employees I can see talking in a group, or just floor walking, and  the medical personnel not at their desks, offices, and I had now clearly observed firstly that this hospital was not even being utilized to a 50 percent capacity, never mind now 75 percent. Clearly bad hospital mangers are responsible for this and there is a significant room for improvement. Being nice to even one bad person is still a major waste of time, and most Hospital managers, employees REALLY STILL do not care at all about the patient’s good welfare, sickness, problems, BUT ONLY THEIR OWN GOOD WELFARE, for  all they staff care about is keeping their own jobs,  getting a raise, promotion and doing the minimum amount of work possible too, because only the fear of firing can cause any hospital employee to do a better job.. So start by firing the bad Hospital managers. Bad School mangers, etc.. Health and all of the bad   Ministers firstly as well. 
 
A host of studies and reports by academics and the federal government shows that physicians who own scanners order many more scans than those who do not http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/30/AR2009073004285.html?sub=AR
 
 
 The  echocardiogram is a test in which ultrasound is used to examine the heart. The equipment is far superior to that used by fishermen. In addition to providing single-dimension images, known as M-mode echo that allows accurate measurement of the heart chambers, the echocardiogram also offers far more sophisticated and advanced imaging. The first test that should be done for most people with potential heart problems often seems rather firstly reserved for the pregnant mothers rather still too.” http://www.heartsite.com/html/echocardiogram.html
Secondly most of the initial doctor  prescribed medical test for potentially serious  heart problems are really pretentious, cheap, ineffective, basically  all useless, and are mostly now used because the real valid medical tests such as the Echocardiogram   are mostly unavailable and too costly to be used immediatley too, for most people who reallly do need them.
 
A number of bad Cardiologists, doctors  refer patients for imaging done by rather very obsolete even equipment, equipment now  they own and thus profit more from.  I recently encountered this myself as well.More than 95 million high-tech scans are done each year in the US , and medical imaging, including CT, M.R.I. and PET scans, has ballooned into a $100-billion-a-year industry in the United States, with Medicare paying for $14 billion of that. But recent studies show that as many as 20 percent to 50 percent of the procedures should never have been done because their results did not help diagnose ailments or treat patients.Insurers pay the same for a scan done on a 10-year-old machine as one on the latest model, though the differences in the images can be significant. Insurers do not distinguish between scans that are done poorly or done well or read by less- or more-qualified doctors. Technologists must also be certified, and there are standards for supervising physicians. And the scanners must be regularly assessed to ensure they are properly functioning. But many test centers are not even accredited.In a recent report, the Government Accountability Office said nearly two-thirds of the money Medicare paid for imaging was for scans in doctors’ offices. And, the report added, doctors were receiving an ever larger part of their income from providing scanning services. Not only were patients more likely to have scans if a doctor did this, but the quality of some of the scans was questioned.   http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/02/health/02scans.html?_r=1    
 
 Some noninvasive Heart tests, and not all of them even are  fully effective .. most tests still do require professional diagnostic experiences solely by qualified cardiologists.
Doctors   are often ordering tests or procedures not based on THE ACTUAL need but A RIGHTFUL CONCERN OF LIABILITY or increasing their income is the biggest waste of health care dollars STILL… More insured and uninsured consumers are RIGHTFULLY getting their BETTER primary care in THE HOSPITAL’S emergency rooms.
 
IN REALITY THE TRIAGE, THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT AT THE HOSPITAL TEND TO PROVIDE STILL THE BEST AND MOST ECONOMICAL MEDICAL SERVICES, AND INCREASING THE ACCESS TO THESE SERVICES THERE WOULD SAVE MORE MEDICARE MONEY TOO. HEART TESTS CAN INCLUDE: 
  • Resting electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
  • Signal-averaged electrocardiogram (SAECG)
  • Chest X-ray
  • Holter monitor (ambulatory electrocardiogram)
  • Echocardiogram
  • Exercise stress test
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA
 
Cancer and Cardiovascular disease ARE  the leading cause of death in both men and women,  Cardiovascular disease accounting for one-third of all deaths. MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE ACCOUNTING STILL  FOR 25 PERCENT?? Medical errors are costing the  billions a year in wasted expenses, something that makes ME irate too. The general belief that the hospitals are getting much better in managing this AND THEMSELVES STILL more than they have in the past is also still an unnacceptable myth.
NOW WE ALL KNOW THAT HEART ATTACKS CAN KILL.. WOULD BE NICE iF THEY COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED.. UNLIKELY.. WOULD ALSO HAVE BEEN NICE IF THEY CAN BE PROPERLY TREATED, DIAGNOSED AS WELL by the medical community including the doctors, nurses and YES more real money was available for the needed treatment as well in reality, not rather a pretentious amount. Both men and women’s  symptoms are often most likely to lead STILL to dismissal by most of the medical personnel.
Many persons seem to stereotype that men only   tend to have “heart attacks” while engaged in physical exertion, like shovelling snow.  I think they should stress that NOT ONLY MEN AND women present heart attacks  differently, each individual persons presentations can be different, non typical now as well.  Some persons  feel   tightness in the chest. Other  pain in the jaw or shoulder or back, others had  had an ‘upset stomach’,    I do agree that doctors and women should educate themselves more  on how men and women  symptoms of a heart attack.  We don’t need more badly trained doctors, nurses instead we need “more competent doctors.”
 
Women are almost twice as likely to die within 30 days of a heart attack compared with men, but the difference disappears when age, medical history and disease severity are taken into account.”
I have seen women die of heart attacks because the medical personnel were not able to recognize that heart attacks in women present differently than they do in men. Women’s heart attacks do not always present with the cardiac pain that men experience, they usually present with abdominal discomfort, a strong urge to defecate and some anxiety, the very symptoms that many doctors roll their eyes at and thus take those complaints very lightly, they are often dismissed as women complaining, and the women are not taken seriously. A good book to read for information is “Women are not small men” available at the library and gives a good description and health information to women with regard to cardiac health care and problems as they affect women. “
 
Also “many health conditions are greatly affected by gender, there is a big difference for many reasons.”  http://www.cbc.ca/health/story/2009/08/25/heart-women.html
 
 
Now on top of all that the food you eat, unresolved negative stress, lack of exercise, hereditary aspects   as well can lead to a serious heart attack. Include the risky behavior such as smoking, obesity,  alcohol abuse, not washing hands, and the often over-prescribing of antibiotics. 
 
According to the medical experts many people die needlessly, even heart attacks and strokes are highly preventable. In fact, seven of ten Americans who die each year, die of a preventable chronic disease such as heart disease and diabetes While 95 percent of the health care dollars in the US are spent on treating disease,  little attention is paid to preventing disease, which should be a national priority  too.  
 
THUS ALSO  ALLOWING MORE PEOPLE ACCESS TO A FREE DIETICIAN IS LESS COSTLY THAN ACCESS TO DOCTORS AND MEDICAL CARE SYSTEM NEXT TOO
 
Most diabetics don’t eat healthily, and Cathy Chan wants to know why. More than two million Canadians have type 2 diabetes, and the number continues to rise. The cost of treating diabetes and its related conditions is estimated at up to $9 billion annually. Long-term studies show that people who follow the lifestyle recommendations they receive when diagnosed have better control of their diabetes and require fewer medications, says Chan, a researcher and professor of nutrition in the department of agricultural, food and nutritional science at the University of Alberta. “That’s less expensive for you and less expensive for the health-care system, but you’re also less at risk for developing the complications of diabetes, which include heart attack, stroke, amputation, blindness and renal failure,” Chan says. Yet only one in three diabetics eats what they should, which basically follows the Canada’s Food Guide. Most diabetics meet protein recommendations, but only 20% eat the required amounts of fibre found in whole grains, fruits and vegetables. According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, diet is the most difficult thing for people to deal with. http://www.canada.com/health/diabetics+eating+right/1889722/story.html
 
Diabetics  are not the only   people who do have problems making  diet changes, so do many heart patients even now as well.. Changing one’s eating habits often requires the cooperation of others such as one’s spouse, and yes falsely some spouse refuse to make any changes.  I estimate 80 percent of heart patients die as a direct result of failing to change their food  eating habits  
 

 

US States with the highest diabetes prevalence in the analysis also have the highest levels of blood pressure and cardiovascular disease risk, cancer risk, and none of this surprising since diabetes is   often related to the type of food they eat too.. and poorer people tend to eat junkier foods..   U.S. scientists also say they’ve found that in human breast cancer cell tumors in mice, a diabetes drug worked better than chemotherapy in prolonging remission. It is interesting that diabetes medicine already has also been found to help 30 percent of heart patients get better too. The drug, metformin, appears to selectively kill cancer stem cells in culture dishes and in mice. Health Ministers and Health Canada should seriously be looking into this too

 

 
You can see also
I know for a fact that both the internet and non doctors, alternative approaches,  were unable to help me with my medical conditions many times.. it took real and competent doctors and real, valid  diagnostic equipment/testing  rather for my: heart problems, diabetes, congestive heart failure, gland problems, vitamin deficiencies, cataracts, etc

It is estimated that nearly one in three  adults have high blood pressure. People from lower socioeconomic backgrounds who suffer a heart attack come to the emergency department more often, are less likely to be treated aggressively and have higher mortality rates a year after heart attack, says new University of Alberta research that has important implications for access to cardiac care. If blood pressure is not brought back to the normal range it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. Magnesium, Cayenne Pepper, Onions, Garlic, Bananas   have also been demonstrated to be effective in bringing down high blood pressure. Eat also a food diet high in fiber, fresh fruit, more vegeatables  and food always low in sugar, or salt.  Avoid the negative side effects of today’s medicines such as Diuretics, Beta Blockers, Alpha Blockers and the related abusive, extortionate, crushing financial costs

Spin – Canadians warming to minority rule – MEDIA, POLITICAL Posturing

 

PINOCCHIO-L

Election time is when the Biggest liars escalate what they have been doing all year now anyway

BUFFALO, N.Y., Aug. 25 (UPI) — Many people seek out information confirming what they believe, instead of searching for information that confirms or disconfirms a belief, U.S. researchers say. Study co-author Steven Hoffman, a visiting assistant professor of sociology at the University at Buffalo, and colleagues say for the most part people completely ignore contrary information.  For example, before the 2004 U.S. election there was strong resilience of the belief among many Americans that Saddam Hussein was linked to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, despite strong evidence otherwise. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2009/08/25/Study-Why-people-ignore-facts/UPI-95341251179479/

” the same day two very dissimilar polls were published. One gave Prime Minister Stephen Harper‘s Conservative party an 11-point lead over the Liberals while the second showed the country’s two oldest parties in a dead heat. http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/08/25/Canadian-Liberals-fan-fall-election-talk/UPI-12571251205605/
 
 SO WHAT POLL DID THE LOCAL  NEWS MEDIA EMPHASIZE, PUBLISH NEXT? THE WANT THEY WANTED THE READERS TO SEE? OR THE ONE THEY THOUGHT THE READERS WANTED TO READ? OR WHAT YOU THOUGHT THERE WAS SUCH AS THING NOW AS HONEST JOURNALISM TOO? DREAM ON AND CAN I SELL YOU THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE AGAIN?

Spin – Canadians warming to minority rule  Canadians warming to liars? 

Why is it so many of the liars still wrongfully, falsely think all of  the rest of us are still stupid?
 

The real fact of life is that there is an ongoing need of honest Journalism still,  of separating the fact, truth from the spins, lies, for the majority persons now even in Canada tend not to believe these polls cause we firstly do know they can bought, be manipulated to give the answer you want, to meet a hidden agenda still. Nor do we tend to believe automatically sadly  the too often lying news media, politicians and their associates as well, especially the lawyers. 
 
The spin doctors now say that Canadians want a Majority Government, Canadians want a majority Liberal Government, Canadians want a majority Conservative  Government or  “Canadians warming to minority rule: poll 53.9% Supportive; Election-ready Conservative MPs focused on majority Emily Senger, National Post  Published: Saturday, August 22, 2009 ” and well here is my version of this poll as posted on the net for all to see too. Canadians want a good  honest majority government, honest, honest, good leaders, honest and good politicians firstly still too, honest and good cops, RCMP firstly still too
 
Firstly my own real past personal undeniable dealing with Nik Nanos, as I had previously detailed to him and on the net,   was that he was an unfair, unethical person, and he did not deny this to me before  too,   who likely would sell himself to the highest bidder and so how can anyone trust anything he writes now too about Stephen Harper or Canadian Politics ?
 
”  With Conservative MPs beginning to ramp up rhetoric about the need for a majority in the next election, the poll suggests they may not have a high degree of support for that view, said Nanos president and CEO Nik Nanos. ( I do not support the conservatives but clearly neither does Nik Nanos based on his other recent polls of his that I have read too but we all could know that before the poll result too)
 
 “The Conservatives have said that they want a majority government for stability, but the polling suggests that only about 31.5% of Canadians would even like them to see them get re-elected,” Mr. Nanos said.  ( We do not need a poll to know that 30 persons of these supporters are Conservatives, mostly in Alberta, prairies , or also the fact that 60 percent of Alberta voters had stopped voting in the provincial elections now too but we knew that before the poll )

 
In the poll, 58.5% of respondents said the statement “Stephen Harper has had his chance and it’s time for a change” matched their beliefs. ( what the same polarized majority that did not elect him into office in the first place too and  we knew that before the poll, and why would have it changed even?)
 
The appetite for minority governments is partially driven by the fact that Canadians don’t see a single leader as particularly strong or desirable, so electing a leader into a minority situation provides a check ( block, stalemate) on power, Mr. Nanos said. ( and that is still  Nik’s political spin, it has nothing to do with a real poll results ehh?)
 
“It’s a bit of a reflection on the state of affairs in regards to the leadership of the federal political parties,” Mr. Nanos said. (but we knew that before the poll)
 
The poll indicated that those in Quebec are most in favour of a minority government, with 29.7% of respondents saying the idea of a minority government was positive. ( We all know or should know that no one can win a federal majority government without a leader from Quebec, and I said that openly too, and that is why IGGY too now from Ontario  is not popular, and that is a fact, no poll is needed,   we knew that before Nik poll.)
 
On the Prairies, only 11% of respondents said the idea of a minority government was positive. ( Cause the biased, self centered  prairies support a majority Conservative government and the rest of Canada do not.. but we knew that before the poll)
This isn’t surprising given the number of Bloc voters in Quebec, who ( rightfully)  benefit greatly when there is a minority in the House, Mr. Nanos said. (but we knew that before the poll, BQ too is a legitimate, elected party and has a full right to exists and no poll can change that fact, truth now too)
 
“Any situation where the BQ could potentially place leverage on the government of Canada, would probably be welcome for those voters,” Mr. Nanos said.
 
When asked why they viewed a minority as favourable, 54.8% of respondents said: “It’s good because it forces parties to co-operate.” But when asked if minority governments actually do co-operate, Mr. Nanos replied simply. “No,” he said, laughing. Co-operation between minorities happened when Lester B. Pearson’s Liberals created the Canada Health Act in 1984, but today’s minority governments seem to spend more time fighting than forging alliances.
 
“There is a natural default position in the Canadian psyche to want everybody to work together and be nice,” Mr. Nanos said. “It doesn’t necessarily translate into political reality.” ( To be honest and fair firstly now   Harper does not have a majority government, and as an minority leader he firstly has to cooperate with the other parties, as we all can know   he Harper himself clearly has refused to do, he and his party now firstly obstructs all parties cooperation to insure his  government failure to hopefully in futility  force a futile majority government election for the Conservatives, the reality is that Harper firstly had set the bad tone in the house himself and he now lying blames it on the others, but we knew that before the poll, there is not denial of that truth and no need to spin it as well)
 
Nanos Research ( actually a spin doctoring, political posturing  report, do take a poll to see if it isn’t ehh) conducted a random telephone survey of 1,002 Canadians between July 30 and Aug. 2. The survey is considered accurate to within plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.” ( accurate? more like full of distortions  and spins and  I myself thus would never hire rightfully Nanos for any Poll..)  esenger@nationalpost.com

No wonder so many people rightfully do believe that Politicians, polls and news media often lie these days.. I got no good meat out of this report, it was a waste of money.. Citizens clearly do not care for leaders, political parties who still are mainly locking after their own interests and lie and say they are not, that they are looking after the citizens, and that is an undeniable truth, fact, that no poll will change too
  
PS: One obvious liar, or crook?  objected in writing to me for sending this to him or others… too bad for him.. I still do have my right of free speech now too.
  
“After five years of constant election speculation, Canadians may be warming to the idea of minority governments, according to a new poll. The poll, conducted by Nanos Research, suggests that more than half of Canadians, 53.9%, say their impression of minority governments is positive or somewhat positive.” ( maybe is not a poll fact, but a spin)
 
Canadians don’t want election, Stephen Harper says, while Harper and his associates  are clearly   in reelection campaign mode
  
 Ignatieff does not want  an election  he says and Ignatieff insists he’s not in campaign mode, but his Liberal Party is
 
 As posted on the net the truth is that Canadians warming to minority rule: poll and everyone in  Politics these days is sadly still a big liar it seems too.. at the federal and at the provincial levels,  they mostly lie to get reelected  and THEY LIE WHEN THEY SAY THEY ARE HERE TO BE RESPONSIBLE TO LOOK AFTER THE GOOD CITIZENS OF CANADA IS BASICALLY THE REASON WE PREFER MINORITY GOVERNMENTS CAUSE WE DO NOT TRUST ANY MAJORITY PARTY. We need to and want to stop electing all liars into any government job, political office, newspapers, news media as well. http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/story.html?id=1918505
  
Another day and we have the news media again disagreeing with each other and who do we believe?
  

Liberals, Tories in dead heat: poll  Monday, Aug. 24, 2009  OTTAWA – A new poll suggests the Conservatives and Liberals remain locked in a dead heat amid rumblings of a possible fall election. The Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey put the parties in a statistical tie, with 32 per cent support for the Liberals and 31 per cent for the Tories. The NDP were at 16 per cent, the Greens at 11, and the Bloc Quebecois at nine. The numbers have barely budged throughout the summer, a period in which voters are typically disengaged.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/canada/cp

Conservatives jump to big lead in poll Reuters Canada   Monday, Aug. 24, 2009 The impression that the economy was recovering from a recession helped propel the Conservatives to 39 percent support and cut the Liberals to 28 percent, the Ipsos Reid poll said. Two months ago, it had the Liberals ahead 35 to 34 percent.”The Tories are now in the driver’s seat,” the polling firm said.Most recent polls had put the two main parties neck and neck, and a Nanos survey two weeks ago had the Liberals ahead by 2-1/2 percentage points.

Conservatives 39%, Liberals 28%, NDP 14%Net Newsledger – James Murray -Monday, 24 August 2009 06:46 pm  Conservatives 39%, Liberals 28%, NDP 14% Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s five-day visit to the north and official statistics showing the country is slowing moving out of recession are working in the prime minister’s favor. Evidence is the 11 percent hike in the Tories’ approval rating in a survey made by Ipsos Reid.The results of the study made by Ipsos Reid for Canwest News Service and released Monday, said the Conservatives led by Harper got a 39 percent support among decided voters. The party’s rating went up by 5 percent compared to two months ago.In contrast, the Liberals led by Michael Ignatieff, secured only 28 percent, which dipped by 7 percent from two months ago. The same poll said 45 percent of Canadians think Harper did a good job and deserves to be reelected, although a higher 50 percent had an opposite view. Nevertheless, Harper is seen by 48 percent as better in improving Canada’s economy and representing Ottawa’s interest in global affairs, while 49 percent view the prime minister as doing a good job in managing Canada’s finances. Ignatieff is perceived as the better leader by 45 percent in protecting the environment,

 

 New Poll In Canada Shows Tories Widen Lead Over Liberals Gant Daily – Monday, Aug. 24, 2009  Ottawa, Ontario (AHN) – Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s five-day visit to the north and official statistics showing the country is slowing moving …

Yeah I know everyone lies, some more than others.. such as news editors, pastors, politicians, lawyers, doctors too?..

 

There are yes too many  false sheep who worship those crooked leaders, shepherds, pastors, preachers dressed in nice suits. Not trying to impress anyone, or showing off I next went to a new church dressed in my clean, regular daily clothes. I next too was surprised when now one said hello to me nor did they great me, and a few services later this continued to happen. So I prayed about it and to my surprise God said they were harlots, prostitutes. Embarrassed at this revelation I decided I would fully proof for myself this was true. So next Sunday I put on a white shirt, tie, nice black pants, and a white sports jacket and most everyone said hello  to me. Incidentally the same thing happens to me on the bus as well.. Why?  Also the very same pastor of this professing Christian church dressed there in a nice suit who also did not talk to me as well was next charged with abuse, slander, lying, misappropriation of church funds, and was eventually fired. Now these days when I see these peacock members, deacons, ushers  strutting around church in their fancy suits trying to impress the others , it causes me to be sick to my stomach still. It would be better if they used the money rather to help the poor and needy in their own church.

Evangelical Prime Minister Stephen Harper now included. The Canadian new Conservative party -wolves in sheep clothing 

Prime Minister Stephen Harper was labelled Canada’s political “patronage king” and a “hypocrite” yesterday after tossing aside for the second time his promise not to name unelected Canadians to the Senate. Liberal Iggy had nothing to do with this as well. Stephen Harper once said he had no plans to stack the Senate with unelected representatives, suggesting it was “a dumping ground for the favoured cronies of the prime minister.” Next when he’s actually a prime minister, he’s done exactly what he said he wouldn’t do. And falsely Harper still blames the Liberals for his lies, poor acts, or whatever but clearly he Harper lacks integrity too and thus patronage and croneyism continues to rule the day in Canadian politics and taxpayers are still the big losers. Conservative supporters  go along with Harper’s lies again too. He has declared to the Canadian public that he would not name unelected people to the Senate. … His word means less and less every day he’s in office, and he’s behaving more and more like the Liberals,” NDP Leader Jack Layton said of Harper.
   
Word that Michael Ignatieff is backing down again from his demands for Employment Insurance reform is terrible news for the 1.6 million Canadians who are out-of-work and struggling to make ends meet, says New Democrat Leader Jack Layton.“All summer I’ve met with unemployed families who can barely pay their bills and put food on the table,” said Layton. “They need help now, but Michael Ignatieff insists on ignoring them.”

The Liberal Party — first under Dion and now under Ignatieff — have a disgraceful track record of propping up Stephen Harper. They’ve rubberstamped his Conservative agenda 79 times and counting. Employment Insurance reform is just the latest example of Liberals standing up for Harper, instead of standing up for Canadians. http://albertatalks.ca/2009/08/28/ignatieff-backs-down-on-ei-again

While personal revenge and anger tends to amplify our worst  tendencies but we all do need a  stark reminder that all persons now are still  responsible, accountable  for what they do, say, in governments, police stations, churches, in the open, online or  otherwise. Civil and public servants, Pastors, elders, individuals included.

I lost faith in Canada’s justice system long time ago

  0COINTOSS
 http://picasaweb.google.com/anonconformer/Thenonconformer#
 
 The faith in the Canadian Justice system  must have rightfully gone out the windows long time ago after I had personally in Canada now also had encountered  the too many crooked evangelical pastors, too many crooked cops, too many crooked accountants, too many  lying lawyers and their bad regulating societies, too many no good, lazy immoral civil and public servants too. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/problem-civil-and-public-servants-are-depressed/
  
It really now was a false bliss to be ignorant, the first 25 years of my life was a very sheltered one, all hidden behind family, friends, school, university in Canada in fact.
 
 My work place itself tended to be very tame, with exception of an occasional selfish, overly ambitious, rude manager or employee.. most people in the private sector tend to be busy working now not rather playing dirty politics, most but not all… some people wrongfully do still use the work place as a place to do their own thing, to play dirty politcs and do not try to  actually do their assigned work.
 
My first major rude awakening to the real world was to encounter in am evangelical  Church  an immoral, maniulating,self centered  evangelical pastor, which next became also the norm the next half a century as well, and this sudden revelation now next was also often confirmed by many others. It was also a shock for me to also see how anyone an be quickly kicked out of the so called evangelical Christian Churches in fact, for all they had to do is stop giving money to the church or let others know they do not go along with the bad pastors, bad elders, bad deacons.. Any financial dissension   is generally ground from immediate dismissal. The real sad thing is about 70 percent of the pastors are still crooked these days, (and yes likely the lawyers, barristers, politicians, cops now as well)  and they tend  tailor their services, church services too for the money givers.. they do use whatever means that will give them money next. It was a very sad discovery that most of the perverse, crookedness in life now still tends to be around one trying to get more money too, in society and the churches, after all they tend to be not much different.. where the poor persons are not anymore welcomed in many even in the churches too.. http://thenonconformer.yolasite.com/index/hireling
 
Too busy still employed, working I did not have the time to discover firsthand what the real world was like.. until I next became sick and unemployed.. now with plenty of free time I next encountered what the too often perverse cops rather are like, busy generating mostly unbeneficial but still money making, self promotional parking ,traffic tickets .. etc and it was a shock to see how the too often perverse judges in the courts falsely went along with it too.
 
My encounter next was with the too many crooked, perverse business persons, crooked accounts even, lying lawyers and bad politicians now too,, all of which  was also a big eye opener.  In Canada   the justice system is still mostly pretentious and incompetent, but  that is nothing now new,  the sadly reality of many of our public and civil servants, cops, RCMP, political, regulating societies now included… and you find out generally the hard way when you are necessitated to try to use their services.. and not before. They all  mostly are unwilling, and ill-equipped to monitor and enforce: illegal major criminal, abuses, activity, and yet they still do take our taxes and their pay all while lying they are mainly serving us all.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/
 
(Jer 5:31 KJV)  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Heaven and Earth

 

God is Creator of Heaven as well as earth


1Chr. 29:10 David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, O LORD, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. 11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. 12 Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.

Gen. 14:17 After Abram returned from defeating Kedorlaomer and the kings allied with him, the king of Sodom came out to meet him in the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley). 18Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, 19and he blessed Abram, saying, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. 20 And blessed be God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything. 21The king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the people and keep the goods for yourself.” 22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth, and have taken an oath 23that I will accept nothing belonging to you, not even a thread or the thong of a sandal, so that you will never be able to say, `I made Abram rich.’

Gen. 24:2 [Abraham] said to the chief servant in his household, the one in charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh. 3I want you to swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I am living, 4but will go to my country and my own relatives and get a wife for my son Isaac.”

Gen. 28:11 When [Jacob] reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. 12 He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 There above it stood the LORD, and he said: “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. 14 Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. 15I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” 16 When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” 17 He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”

Exod. 20:1 And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3″ You shall have no other gods before me. 4″ You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand [generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Josh. 2:10 We have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed. 11When we heard of it, our hearts melted and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below. 12 Now then, please swear to me by the LORD that you will show kindness to my family, because I have shown kindness to you. Give me a sure sign 13 that you will spare the lives of my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all who belong to them, and that you will save us from death.” 14  “Our lives for your lives!” the men assured her. “If you don’t tell what we are doing, we will treat you kindly and faithfully when the LORD gives us the land.”

1 Sam. 2:8 [Hannah’s prayer of praise] He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. “For the foundations of the earth are the LORD’s; upon them he has set the world. 9 He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. “It is not by strength that one prevails; 10 those who oppose the LORD will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the LORD will judge the ends of the earth. “He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.” 11 Then Elkanah went home to Ramah, but the boy ministered before the LORD under Eli the priest.

1 Kings. 8:22 Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in front of the whole assembly of Israel, spread out his hands toward heaven 23 and said: “O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below –you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way. 24 You have kept your promise to your servant David my father; with your mouth you have promised and with your hand you have fulfilled it –as it is today. 25 “Now LORD, God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father the promises you made to him when you said, `You shall never fail to have a man to sit before me on the throne of Israel, if only your sons are careful in all they do to walk before me as you have done.’ 26 And now, O God of Israel, let your word that you promised your servant David my father come true. 27 “But will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built! 28 Yet give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, O LORD my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day. . . . 41 “As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your name– 42 for men will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm –when he comes and prays toward this temple, 43 then hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name.

2 Kings. 19:14 Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the LORD and spread it out before the LORD. 15 And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD: “O LORD, God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. 16 Give ear, O LORD, and hear; open your eyes, O LORD, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to insult the living God.

1 Chr. 21:15 And God sent an angel to destroy Jerusalem. But as the angel was doing so, the LORD saw it and was grieved because of the calamity and said to the angel who was destroying the people, “Enough! Withdraw your hand.” The angel of the LORD was then standing at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. 16 David looked up and saw the angel of the LORD standing between heaven and earth, with a drawn sword in his hand extended over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders, clothed in sackcloth, fell facedown. 17David said to God, “Was it not I who ordered the fighting men to be counted? I am the one who has sinned and done wrong. These are but sheep. What have they done? O LORD my God, let your hand fall upon me and my family, but do not let this plague remain on your people.”

2 Chr. 36:22 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah, the LORD moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and to put it in writing: 23″This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: “`The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Anyone of his people among you –may the LORD his God be with him, and let him go up.'”

Ezra 1:1 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah, the LORD moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and to put it in writing: 2 “This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: “`The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. 3 Anyone of his people among you –may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the LORD, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem.

Ezra 5:7 The report they sent him read as follows: To King Darius: Cordial greetings. 8 The king should know that we went to the district of Judah, to the temple of the great God. The people are building it with large stones and placing the timbers in the walls. The work is being carried on with diligence and is making rapid progress under their direction. 9 We questioned the elders and asked them, “Who authorized you to rebuild this temple and restore this structure?” 10 We also asked them their names, so that we could write down the names of their leaders for your information. 11 This is the answer they gave us: “We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and we are rebuilding the temple that was built many years ago, one that a great king of Israel built and finished. 12 But because our fathers angered the God of heaven, he handed them over to Nebuchadnezzar the Chaldean, king of Babylon, who destroyed this temple and deported the people to Babylon. 13 “However, in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, King Cyrus issued a decree to rebuild this house of God. 14 He even removed from the temple of Babylon the gold and silver articles of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple in Jerusalem and brought to the temple in Babylon. “Then King Cyrus gave them to a man named Sheshbazzar, whom he had appointed governor, 15 and he told him, `Take these articles and go and deposit them in the temple in Jerusalem. And rebuild the house of God on its site.’ 16 So this Sheshbazzar came and laid the foundations of the house of God in Jerusalem. From that day to the present it has been under construction but is not yet finished.”

Neh. 9:5 And the Levites –Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Pethahiah –said: “Stand up and praise the LORD your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting. ” “Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. 6 You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you. 7 “You are the LORD God, who chose Abram and brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans and named him Abraham.

Matt. 6:9 “This, then, is how you should pray: “`Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. ‘ 14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. 16 “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18so that it will not be obvious to men that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Ps. 3:4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. Selah 5I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. 6I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.

Ps. 9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done. 12For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.

Ps. 146:5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, 6the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them– the LORD, who remains faithful forever. 7 He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, 8 the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous. 9 The LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. 10 The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.

Ps. 102:18 Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD: 19″The LORD looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth, 20to hear the groans of the prisoners and release those condemned to death.” 21So the name of the LORD will be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem 22when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the LORD.

Ps. 115:14 May the LORD make you increase, both you and your children. 15 May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. 16The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man.

Ps. 121:1 I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3He will not let your foot slip– he who watches over you will not slumber; 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5The LORD watches over you– the LORD is your shade at your right hand; 6  the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7The LORD will keep you from all harm– he will watch over your life; 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Isa. 52:1 Awake, awake, O Zion, clothe yourself with strength. Put on your garments of splendor, O Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. 2 Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, O Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, O captive Daughter of Zion. 3 For this is what the LORD says: “You were sold for nothing, and without money you will be redeemed.” 4 For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “At first my people went down to Egypt to live; lately, Assyria has oppressed them. 5 “And now what do I have here?” declares the LORD. “For my people have been taken away for nothing, and those who rule them mock, ” declares the LORD. “And all day long my name is constantly blasphemed. 6 Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I.” 7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” 8 Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy. When the LORD returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes. 9 Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. 10 The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.

Isa. 66:10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her. 11 For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance.”
     12 For this is what the LORD says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. 13 As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”
     14 When you see this, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like grass; the hand of the LORD will be made known to his servants, but his fury will be shown to his foes. 15 See, the LORD is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. 16 For with fire and with his sword the LORD will execute judgment upon all men, and many will be those slain by the LORD.
     17″ Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following the one in the midst of those who eat the flesh of pigs and rats and other abominable things –they will meet their end together,” declares the LORD.
     18″ And I, because of their actions and their imaginations, am about to come and gather all nations and tongues, and they will come and see my glory.
     19″ I will set a sign among them, and I will send some of those who survive to the nations –to Tarshish, to the Libyans and Lydians (famous as archers), to Tubal and Greece, and to the distant islands that have not heard of my fame or seen my glory. They will proclaim my glory among the nations. 20 And they will bring all your brothers, from all the nations, to my holy mountain in Jerusalem as an offering to the LORD –on horses, in chariots and wagons, and on mules and camels,” says the LORD. “They will bring them, as the Israelites bring their grain offerings, to the temple of the LORD in ceremonially clean vessels. 21 And I will select some of them also to be priests and Levites,” says the LORD.
     22 “As the new heavens and the new earth that I make will endure before me,” declares the LORD, “so will your name and descendants endure. 23 From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the LORD. 24 “And they will go out and look upon the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; their worm will not die, nor will their fire be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.”

Jer. 23:23 “Am I only a God nearby,” declares the LORD, “and not a God far away? 24 Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him?” declares the LORD. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the LORD. 25 “I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name. They say, `I had a dream! I had a dream!’ 26 How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds? 27 They think the dreams they tell one another will make my people forget my name, just as their fathers forgot my name through Baal worship. 28 Let the prophet who has a dream tell his dream, but let the one who has my word speak it faithfully. For what has straw to do with grain?” declares the LORD. 29 “Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

Isa. 62:10 Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations. 11T he LORD has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to the Daughter of Zion, `See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.'” 12 They will be called the Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD; and you will be called Sought After, the City No Longer Deserted.

Isa. 65:16 Whoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the God of truth; he who takes an oath in the land will swear by the God of truth. For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes. 17 “Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. 18But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. 19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more. 20 “Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; he who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth; he who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. 21 They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the works of their hands. 23They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the LORD, they and their descendants with them. 24Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent’s food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the LORD.

Isa. 55:9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 11so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Isa. 56:6 And foreigners who bind themselves to the LORD to serve him, to love the name of the LORD, and to worship him, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant– 7these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

Isa. 51:1 “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn; 2 look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was but one, and I blessed him and made him many. 3 The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing. 4 “Listen to me, my people; hear me, my nation: The law will go out from me; my justice will become a light to the nations. 5 My righteousness draws near speedily, my salvation is on the way, and my arm will bring justice to the nations. The islands will look to me and wait in hope for my arm. 6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail.

Isa. 11:1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. 2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD– 3 and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; 4 but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. 5 Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist. 6 The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. 7 The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. 8 The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper’s nest. 9 They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. 10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious.

Isa. 14:12 How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! 13 You said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. 14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” 15 But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit. 16Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: “Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, 17the man who made the world a desert, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?”

Isa. 24:21 In that day the LORD will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below. 22 They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days. 23 The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed; for the LORD Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders, gloriously.

Ps. 33:13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind; 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth– 15he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.

Ps. 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.

Ps. 48:1 Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain. 2 It is beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth. Like the utmost heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King.

Ps. 50:2 From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth. 3  Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages. 4 He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that he may judge his people: 5″Gather to me my consecrated ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.” 6 And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for God himself is judge. Selah

Ps. 15:1 LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? 2 He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart 3 and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, 4 who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, 5 who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.

Zeph. 3:11 On that day you will not be put to shame for all the wrongs you have done to me, because I will remove from this city those who rejoice in their pride. Never again will you be haughty on my holy hill. 12 But I will leave within you the meek and humble, who trust in the name of the LORD. 13 The remnant of Israel will do no wrong; they will speak no lies, nor will deceit be found in their mouths. They will eat and lie down and no one will make them afraid.” 14 Sing, O Daughter of Zion; shout aloud, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem! 15 The LORD has taken away your punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you; never again will you fear any harm. 16 On that day they will say to Jerusalem, “Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands hang limp. 17 The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

Matt. 5:1 Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them, saying: 3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. 8Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matt. 6:19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Mark 9:47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, 48 where “`their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’

1 Cor. 15:35 But someone may ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 39All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. 40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. 41 The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.
     42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
     If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being” ; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.
     50 I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed– 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 55 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
     58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

2 Cor. 5:1 Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

Phil. 2:9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Col. 1:9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. 13For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Hebr. 11:8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
     11 By faith Abraham, even though he was past age –and Sarah herself was barren –was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12 And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.
     13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16Instead, they were longing for a better country –a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. . . .
     35 Women received back their dead, raised to life again. Others were tortured and refused to be released, so that they might gain a better resurrection. 36 Some faced jeers and flogging, while still others were chained and put in prison. 37 They were stoned; they were sawed in two; they were put to death by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated– 38 the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground. 39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. 40 God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.

2  Pet. 3:11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. 14So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.

Rev. 2:1 “To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands: 2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. 4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. 5 Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. 6 But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”

Rev. 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. 13 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Rev. 21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
     5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
     6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars –their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Rev. 22:1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
     6 The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”
     7″ Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”
     8 I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me. 9 But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book. Worship God!”
     10 Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near. 11 Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.”
     12 “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
     14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
     16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” 17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.
     18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
     20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
     Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
     21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.

Isa. 66:1 This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? 2 Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD. “This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word.

What does the Bible actually say about God, earth, heaven as well the dwelling, resting place of God himself, the place where God and Jesus Christ the Lamb live as one. Entrance to Heaven is  by only one way now too, it is through the house of God, the Church of Jesus Christ.

Everything in Heaven and earth is God’s to do with as he pleases and to judge now as well.

“CP Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates continued to rise   TORONTO — Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections. But despite that, rates of these infections continued to rise in the years immediately following the outbreaks, a new study reveals. Rates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus – known as MRSA – more than doubled in the period from 1999 to 2005, said the study, which was based on a survey of Canadian hospitals with more 80 or more patient beds.  Clostridium difficile infections ( shit  disease ) also rose over that period and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus climbed 77 per cent over the period. “Despite the two major communicable diseases – SARS and C. difficile – despite the emphasis by the Canadian Public Safety Institute on safer health care, despite all those things, our institutional approaches to infection control have changed remarkably little,” said Dr. Andrew Simor, head of microbiology at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Simor was not involved in the study. “And the outcomes, as a result, have gone in the wrong direction.” The survey was conducted in 2006 by researchers from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., and was a follow-up to an earlier survey conducted in 1999. Both were funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The results, which will be published in the December issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, showed that while hospitals reported an increase in staff devoted to infection control, increasing numbers of patients fell prey to hospital-acquired infections. There were 5.2 cases of MRSA per 1,000 hospital admissions in 2005, up from two per 1,000 in 1999. There was also an upward trend in C. difficile infections, and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with VRE soared. “We have to roll up our sleeves,” said lead author Dr. Dick Zoutman, head of infection control at Kingston General Hospital. But while the numbers don’t look good, the director of infectious disease prevention and control with Ontario’s public health agency raised a couple of important caveats. Dr. Michael Gardam suggested hiring new infection control staff is only one step in improving a hospital’s infection control performance. Real improvement requires a commitment and effort from all those involved in patient care in an institution, he said – and that takes time. “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Gardam said. “You need to have more infection control practitioners. And you need to bring about culture change. And just doing the resources side of things I don’t believe will actually get you there.” Gardam also suggested the numbers might have been worse but for the injection of resources that followed the 2003 SARS outbreak and the C. difficile crisis, which first came to light in 2004. “Probably we are having an impact, we are slowing the increase,” said Gardam, who was not involved in the study. “But we’re not actually achieving a real steady state and we’re not actually seeing a decrease.” That’s especially worrying given the current state of the economy, said both Zoutman and Simor, who noted that infection control efforts are an easy target when hospitals are trying to cut costs. “I’m concerned now that it’s more challenging economic times … that we don’t lose (sight of) this,” said Zoutman. “Because it’s a false economy. It’s penny wise, pound foolish.” “

Canada’s federal election fiasco repeats itself

Filed under: News and politics — thenonconformer @ 1:23 pm

The Quebec vote strongly suggests Harper still doesn’t have an innate feel for the aspirations of that province or he really does not care to have one.  “The Bloc got another break when Stephen Harper made a statement pushing for teens who commit serious crimes to serve jail sentences in adult prisons. Mr. Duceppe slammed the Prime Minister for delivering “fresh meat” to prison pedophiles and sending young criminals to “the university of crime.”” http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/election-2008/story.html?id=882332
 
Now really How can a now Alberta, redneck that was personally now even raised in Montreal, Quebec,  now get it so wrong, did he accidently offend the people of Quebec or did he do so knowingly because he not care if it did cause he was trying to please so hard his hypocritical, Conservative rednecks of Alberta, who do emphasize now wrongfully now the letter of   the law over the  spirit of the law.. for now when there is an increase of  problem children, juvenile diligent  it is the parents firstly who have to take the majority of the blame and not the children. Surely the self professing Christian evangelical, Alliance church,  Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper knows this from his own personal Bible readings? (Prov  22:6 KJV)  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

“It is historical fact, reinforced again this week, that Quebeckers have always voted for a party led by a Quebecker when confronted with a choice between such a party and one led by someone from outside the province… It is always possible that this pattern of not preferring one of their own could be broken, but it hasn’t been for 141 years….  It is also an  historical fact, reinforced again this week, that the rest of Canada  have always voted for a party led by a English speaking person when confronted with a choice between such a party and one led by someone from outside the province who cannot speak English properly, something the dumb Liberal party falsely had overlooked…  And after the Tories’ poor showing in the province in Tuesday’s election, many Quebec Conservatives believe Mr. Harper needs the Premier more than Mr. Charest – who is running high in the polls before a possible spring election – needs him.  The criticism has allowed Mr. Charest to position himself as a defender of Quebec’s interests who doesn’t owe anything to the regime in Ottawa.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/
 
Still  the Quebec province could not remain silent on key planks of the Conservative election platform, such as life sentences for young offenders and cuts to arts programs.

 

More minority government.  Conservatives win about 37 percent of the votes, a one percent gain only  since 2006. Liberals win 26 percent, down 4 percent. Liberals have worst showing in 20 years., BQ win 10 percent-  no change-, and  NDP win 18 percent of the votes , another 1 percent gain . But the NDP made significant gains mostly in Ontario. Lowest voter turnout in history, for $290-million federal election

Conservatives humbled, they still would still need opposition party support to govern. Canada’s third minority government in four years. Harper’s Conservatives defeated a Liberal minority government in the January 2006 election.  The Bloc Quebecois won about two-thirds of the Quebec province’s 75 seats on Tuesday as it repeated its 2006 success and kept its stranglehold on the province.  Canadian International Trade Minister Michael Fortier lost his bid to win a seat in Parliament in Tuesday’s election, initial projections showed. As expected, the Liberal’s star candidate, 36-year-old Justin Trudeau, son of the late prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was elected in his riding of Papineau, giving the party a boost to its sagging fortunes in Quebec. Disgraced former foreign minister, Maxime Bernier was easily re-elected in the Beauce with 63 per cent of the vote, despite being embroiled in the Julie Couillard affair.   Fortier, a member of the unelected Senate upper chamber, was trailing badly behind a candidate from the separatist Bloc Quebecois in the French-speaking province of Quebec. Whether he makes it back into government is now in considerable doubt.  Voters shut out the Conservatives from two of Canada’s major cities for a second consecutive election last night, when the Tories failed to secure a single seat in either Toronto or Montreal.. The Liberals have elected or are leading in 21 Toronto ridings, and the NDP in two, while the Conservative party has been shut out of Canada’s largest city yet again. NDP got one seat in Montreal and the Liberals got 15. Almost all of the past Conservative Cabinet Ministers were re-elected. New Democrats across Canada had heightened expectations for the elections on Monday night that were dashed when the ballots were finally counted. Liberal Bob Rae   elected twice in the same year. Rae took the riding in a byelection on March 17 and was declared the winner tonight after about a fifth of the polls were counted. Michael Ignatieff also took his riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore with about 47 per cent of the vote, with 50 of 261 polls reporting.  Rae and Ignatieff are considered front-runners if Stephane Dion’s leadership is challenged. Political observers have said Dion could face some pressure to resign if the Liberals fail to win about 90 seats, The Liberals are expected  to take about 76 seats.  Former Liberal leadership candidate Martha Hall Findlay took her seat in Willowdale and Gerard Kennedy took Parkdale-High Park from the NDP. Nova Scotia has elected its first Independent MP since 1874. Federal Liberals all but faded from Manitoba’s political landscapeTuesday, clinging to one seat following a fierce fight with the Conservatives and the NDP. Saskatchewan was awash in Tory blue Tuesday night with voters in the province strongly backing their incumbent Conservative MPs. Tories   make almost a clean sweep of all 14 ridings in southern Alberta – Big deal! They make enough noise about it still too.The NDP challenger Linda Duncan  in Edmonton-Strathcona bumped off four-time incumbent Tory Rahim Jaffer, preventing a Conservative sweep of Alberta. The Tories now hold 22 of 36 B.C. seats, up five from the last election.   They took ridings from both the New Democrats and Liberals but boosted their share mostly at Liberal expense. The Liberals went from seven to five seats but managed to hang on to three out of four core ridings. The New Democrats won in nine ridings, down one from their result in the 2006 election.   In the 2006 election, the Liberals sent 20 MPs to Ottawa from Atlantic Canada, while the Conservatives won nine seats and the NDP three. At press time the Liberals were elected or leading in 16 seats, the Conservatives had a small boost to 11 seats, the NDP had four and Bill Casey chalked one up in the Independent column.Voters in Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley are sending ex Conservative Bill Casey back to Ottawa for a fifth consecutive term.  The longtime MP made headlines last June when he voted against his party on a budget bill, saying it denied Nova Scotia benefits promised in an offshore deal. He was promptly kicked out of the Conservative caucus. Gerry Ritz, the federal agriculture minister who came under fire for cracking jokes about listeriosis, has reclaimed his seat in Saskatchewan. Canadians have elected a record number of women  68 to the House of Commons.

 

 

Majority Is Seen as Unlikely for Canada’s Conservatives   October 14, 2008  OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s gamble that forcing Canada into its third election in four years would give him firm control over Parliament seemed to be falling short on Tuesday.  Polls leading into the vote had indicated that his Conservatives would return to power, but that they would again find themselves relying on support from the opposition to get legislation passed.  And early returns from Atlantic Canada, where polls closed first, showed the Conservatives leading or elected in 21 parliamentary districts, to the Liberals’ 28 seats. The Conservatives were shut out in Newfoundland and Labrador.  But the Atlantic provinces were not expected to back Mr. Harper’s party, and Danny Williams, the Conservative who is prime minister of Newfoundland, had vigorously campaigned against the federal wing of his party because of a dispute over oil and gas rights. After taking power in 2006, Mr. Harper set a fixed election date, an idea introduced with fanfare but abandoned last month when he called this election.  It appeared that he was relying on the strong economy, as well as disarray in the opposition Liberal Party, to secure the parliamentary majority he was denied in the last election, in January 2006.  Mr. Harper was blindsided, however, by the turmoil that has swept international financial markets. Canada’s banks have avoided the troubles experienced of late in the United States and Britain, but the Toronto Stock Exchange has gyrated with its counterparts elsewhere. Mr. Harper made an undesirable situation worse for his party by projecting a nonchalant attitude.  During a debate, he found himself on the defensive after saying, “What Canadians are worried about right now is not the job situation, not losing their home like in the U.S.” Their concerns, he added, were limited to their investments. Later, in a television interview, he suggested that the world’s economic problems might not be all bad. “I think there are probably some gains to be made in the stock market,” he said. Canadians do not vote directly for a political party or the prime minister, but elect a local member of the House of Commons, the lower house of Parliament. For Mr. Harper to achieve a majority in Parliament, it was essential for him to improve his party’s standing in Ontario and Quebec, which control 181 of the 308 seats.  The current economic uncertainty has been a particular concern in parts of Ontario where industries rely heavily on exports to the United States. A rise in the value of the Canadian dollar over the past two years made many of those factories much less competitive. The economic slowdown in the United States has aggravated the problem. Peter Donolo, a former official in a Liberal government who now is an executive of the Strategic Counsel, a polling firm, said the perception of Mr. Harper in Quebec reversed during the campaign, from a 60 percent approval rating to a 60 percent disapproval rating. “The support just evaporated,” Mr. Donolo said. “He chased away Quebec votes kind of offhandedly.” French-speaking Quebecers reacted poorly to suggestions by Mr. Harper that artists were members of the elite who spent too much time at government-financed galas.  A proposal to stiffen penalties for young people who commit crimes also found little following in the province.   The New Democratic Party, supported by organized labor and led by Jack Layton, steadily rose in most polls during the campaign.  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/15/world/americas/15canada.html?ref=world

 MONTREAL — Liberal Leader Stephane Dion found himself an unlikely ally Friday as he dealt with the aftermath of a botched English-language interview in Halifax — Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe. Duceppe came to Dion’s defence after the Conservatives manhandled the Liberal leader over the garbled interview and declared him unfit to lead the country. Dion tripped up during the interview with CTV Atlantic on Thursday and excerpts of his linguistic fumbles were later broadcast despite assurances made to the Liberals the flubs would not be aired. The Conservatives wasted no time lambasting Dion, with Leader Stephen Harper linking Dion’s language woes to his ability to lead. But Duceppe called Harper’s comments a “low blow” during a radio interview in Montreal. The Bloc leader says Harper’s comment only illustrates the “double standard” that exists in Canadian politics that requires French-speaking politicians to be fluently bilingual while English-speaking politicians can get away with mangling French. “I think it’s just unacceptable to criticize Mr. Dion’s English,” Duceppe said.  “I think when we compare Mr. Dion’s English with the French of other English leaders or ministers . . . I think he’s getting better.” http://www.edmontonsun.com/canadavotes/news/2008/10/10/7047636.html

New Harper image didn’t cut it with Atlantic vote
TheChronicleHerald.ca, Canada –  By MARILLA STEPHENSON Staff Columnist Atlantic Canadians slammed the door against Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s second serious crack at a majority

Untill all parties start to care about all the voters this predicted fiasco repeats itself

 and it was really dumb to make a person  a Liberal chief too who cannot speak english.

And all persons are merely dreaming that the new Parliament will next usher in an era of co-operation between both the governing party and its opponents as long as Stephen Harper is around. That is not his style for he clearly and wrongfully loves to be a bully, to body check others.  And Harper now will clearly have to endure the successes and failures of minority government again by his own poor contributions to it .

it is about time someone did it..

 I have often said, asked that they should in fairness not discriminate and investigate not just all of the civil, public servants, politicians, in reality but also all the pastors, evangelists, preachers and annual now fairly in all of the denominations not just a few Pentecostal ones  even for alcoholism, drug usage,  possible tax evasions, abuse of donated funds, lies, slander.. but it never will happen sadly.. too many politicians who are likely just as bad will likely suppress it all firstly too.

Hospitality tab at Passport Canada costs taxpayers $16,800: document   OTTAWA – Senior cabinet minister Peter MacKay approved a $16,800 hospitality bill for a group of civil servants in an apparent bending of government rules, a newly disclosed document shows while Federal rules strictly govern hospitality expenses, especially when food and drink are provided free to civil servants.

What’s wrong with insisting that visitors to government offices aren’t drunk?

 

Tories apologize for ‘sober’ remark to aboriginal protester http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080918.welxncanapolgy0918/BNStory/Front

What’s wrong with insisting that visitors to government offices aren’t drunk?  Such a hypocritical Question, response firstly.

The Question   would only be really appropriate if the Ministers of the governments, managers of the civil and  public services were exemplary sober now themselves now..

Hospitality tab at Passport Canada costs taxpayers $16,800: document   OTTAWA – Senior cabinet minister Peter MacKay approved a $16,800 hospitality bill for a group of civil servants in an apparent bending of government rules, a newly disclosed document shows while Federal rules strictly govern hospitality expenses, especially when food and drink are provided free to civil servants.

Just last week a medical Doctor, one of my cardiologists too,  himself told me that most of Canada’s politicians are alcoholics, for  it seems liars and alcoholics are the best candidates suitable for getting the job? Unacceptable always too.

Not one cent of taxpayer’s money should be used to buy now any entertainment booze starting with the evangelical Prime Minister  Stephen Harper who is known for giving wine bottles as gifts to others

One of my neighbors used to work at a Major Downtown Hotel where the major politicians would come for lunch and fill up  drunk on their martinis, for if you had 2 martinis for lunch now you re legally drunk, incapable to drive so how could you go back to work and do an honest days work? You cannot. He saw even Alberta’s past premier  Ralph Klein give a speech while drunk as well.

I tend to pray for wisdom and guidance, and I was praying as to what kind of Christian Obama was, as I was praying the TV news came on and they showed Obama in a bar drinking alcohol with other alcoholics.. alcohol the substance that causes most of the car accidents, crimes, domestic abuses, violence.. he was not being a good example, and clearly was not exercising self control..

in Canada it seems we have been having minority governments and often reelections and part of the problems here too they are wrongfully electing the liars and alcoholics, instead of decent, good persons.

The Bible also clearly says a leader should not drink alcoholic beverages. And I have a whole post on that too. Living high on the hog in public office, abusing taxpayers money is generally associated with the alcoholics now as well.

1 Cor 6:10 Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers {and} slanderers, nor extortioners {and} robbers will inherit {or} have any share in the kingdom of God.

There is no record that Jesus drank strong drink, grape fruit juice yes, fermented grapefruit juice? no!. As a pastor or church leader, would I demand abstinence for leadership? Absolutely! The principle of Proverbs 31:4-5 is appropriately applied here, “It is not for Kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, or for rulers to take strong drink, lest they drink and forget what has been decreed and pervert the rights of all the afflicted.”

Canada’s “PM Stephen Harper the pretender evangelical as well.. is not the first time he wrongfully gave alcoholic beverages to others, and what next? Playboy??

http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2008/06/30/abstainers/

Obama says he is a good person then let him and his followers now act like it so we all can see it. Cause we all are not seeing it.

I rightfully openly oppose all these false, bad professing Christians

  
Self regulation is another bad word for masturbation and it is not the real thing
 .

So still now  what really is needed  firstly is not more CHEAP, PRETENTIOUS  self regulations,   the supposed discipline of their members , or even their ensuring their education, but real INSPECTIONS, EFFECTIVENESS , competency testing. 

 .
(Micah 2:8 KJV)  Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.
 .
(Micah 3:5 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.  
 .
I have even been blogging on the net for decades  and surprisingly It has now been too often the bad professing Christians, bad pastors who have been wrongfully the most abusive towards me and my posts.. jealousy seems to still control them sadly too. Even the false apostle Judas was part of the 12 apostles
 .
  (Mal 3:5 KJV)  And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
 .
(Jer 24:2 KJV)  One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
 .
(Psa 120:7 KJV)  I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
(Psa 140:2 KJV)  Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
(Psa 144:1 KJV)   Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
(Prov 20:18 KJV)  Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
 .
I have often said, asked that they should in fairness not discriminate and investigate all the pastors, evangelists, preachers and annual now fairly in all of the denominations not just a few Pentecostal ones  even for possible tax evasions, abuse of donated funds, lies, slander.. but it never will happen sadly.. too many politicians who are likely just as bad will likely suppress it too.
 .
(Isa 41:12 KJV)  Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. 
.

While the Plymouth Brethren even say they Believe the Bible is the Word of God, they too clearly do have this unholy, desperate and complicated need to reinterpret almost every passage  of the Bible suitable to their own liking. They also seem to like to eradicate the Bible references to judgement, reaping, sins, Hell, damnation, and I often still do wonder .why? what are they hiding? fearful of? the real truth?

(Isa 42:13 KJV)  The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his e.nemies.

I make no denial, I rightfully openly oppose all these false, bad professing Christians, Plymouth Brethren, Dispensationalist, Fundamentalists, Baptists  who wrongfully  promote Hatred towards the other Christians, the  Catholics, Pentecostals, Charismatic Christians and do now lie about them , slander them too, even on the net, even those in my own family, and I do openly demand these bad persons rightful prosecutions  or repentance
 .
It is very clear that the Darby Plymouth Brethren, Dispensationalist  Christians to compensate for their failure to try to convert Jewish persons have come up with false reasons for not doing so as well
 .
There actually is no Biblical basis, promises, prophecy for Israel reclaiming this land in the whole New Testament.. just more Old Testament Jewish spins..
 
 .
“By embracing Christian Zionist teachings many believers have drifted from “… the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 1:3)
 .
Believers have become involved in politics and war, and have become respecter of persons.
.
Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
Geneva Bible Notes:
God does not judge men either by their blood or by their country, either to receive them or to cast them away.
 .
Christian Zionist teaching has caused many a believer to stray from their main purpose on this earth … preaching the gospel to every creature and evangelizing a lost world. Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
.
I too rightfully openly oppose all these false, bad professing Christians

 For it is a fact that anything that will put a self regulating body or a Ministry into a negative light will have a built in  tendency still to be denied,   suppressed, minimized in reality, to be ineffective .  

 .

There in reality is the main  one important step that all consumers can take to protect themselves from any unscrupulous persons  and that is enforced, exemplary public exposure and prosecution of the supposedly guilty persons by a recognized judicial public body,  and so now how many such bad persons now have really been exposed, prosecuted in the last few years in reality too by the responsible Ministers as well?  None? and why not?   
  .
Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.
.

  “about the ABUSERS, bullies, thugs, proud oppressors, war mongers “ 

.

THERE IS A  VERY BASIC COMMON MISCONCEPTION ON HOW TO DEAL WITH ANY PERCEIVED EVEN INJUSTICES, ABUSES, ANYWHERE, IN THE CHURCH AS WELL, BESIDES IMMEDIATELY CALLING THE LOCAL  POLICE..
.
THE NEW TESTAMENT IS CLEAR HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.. COMMUNICATION – AND YOU DON’T FIRST POST IT ALL ON THE NET.
 .
First you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and   proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others.
 .

Next God is fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing for decades too..

I SIMPLY SEND AN EMAIL, I PUT IT INTO CLEARLY WRITING, SO THE GUILTY PARTY CANNOT SAY I DID NOT ASK HIM OR HER TO REPENT.

 .
WHETHER THEY ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR NOT TO GOD DOES NOT MATTER.
.

THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS IN CANADA THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO  IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO.

Canada’s election not as interesting as the one in the US?

 


Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams made his “ABC,” or Anything But Conservative, campaign official on Tuesday by registering his crusade against Stephen Harper’s Conservatives with Elections Canada and obtaining “third party” status..It’s just the latest move by Williams, a Progressive Conservative, to ramp up his fight to prevent the re-election of Stephen Harper in the Oct. 14 federal election.Under Elections Canada rules, any person or group that spends more than $500 on election advertising must register as a “third party,” a designation distinct from that of parties actually running in the election.Williams has waged a war of words with Harper ever since the leader reneged on a 2006 election promise to exclude non-renewable energy sources from the equalization formulaOn Monday, the premier launched a website, http://www.anythingbutconservative.ca/ AnythingButConservative.ca, in his bid to keep Harper out of office. Days earlier, he blasted the prime minister in a vitriolic speech, calling Harper a fraud and warning he would pursue a far-right agenda if he is allowed to form a majority government.    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canadavotes/story/2008/09/16/williams-elections-cnd.html

 

Look at the great infighting… and it makes me wonder how anyone can support Harper

  
“In this campaign, you will hear many promises.
But promises are not on the ballot. People are on the ballot.
And the promises are only as good as the integrity of the people who make them.
 In this election, it is our responsibility as voters to serve as judges of character.
Let’s first of all remember that Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party was built on a broken promise. Peter MacKay promised David Orchard he would not merge the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada with the Canadian Alliance. That promise was swiftly broken.
And the broken promises have not stopped since.
Stephen Harper, in the last two election campaigns, traveled to Newfoundland and Labrador bearing a promise.
Newfoundlanders and Labradorians fully expected Stephen Harper to live up to his words and repeated written promise.
He did not.
He broke his promise after he got his votes. His own MPs and candidates confirm his promise was broken.
Stephen Harper’s actions raise important questions of trust. Of integrity. Of character.

In this election, Canadians have the opportunity – and the obligation – to judge Stephen Harper and his Conservatives by their record.
They have also broken other promises to Canadians.
They have imposed deep cuts on some of the most vulnerable people in our country.
They have mocked provincial premiers.
They have discouraged businesses from investing in Ontario.
These Conservatives are certainly not “Progressive” Conservatives. Their agenda is regressive.
And now the Conservatives are seeking a mandate and a majority government to continue to implement an agenda that is not fully revealed.

Canada deserves better than this.
This election truly is about making Canada strong. Strong and progressive. A country in which values like integrity and trust actually mean something.
The power to shape our future is in our hands.
And the first step is as easy as A-B-C. “
Anything But Conservative.”

 Stephen Harper’s own  past Quotes

“I think in Atlantic Canada, because of what happened in the decades following Confederation, there is a culture of defeat that we have to overcome. …Atlantic Canada’s culture of defeat will be hard to overcome as long as Atlantic Canada is actually physically trailing the rest of the country.”
    – New Brunswick Telegraph Journal
“There’s unfortunately a view of too many people in Atlantic Canada that it’s only through government favours that there’s going to be economic progress, or that’s what you look to…. That kind of can’t-do attitude is a problem in this country but it’s obviously more serious in regions that have had have-not status for a long time.”
    – Toronto Sun
“There is a dependence in the region that breeds a culture of defeatism.”
    – CBC News
“I’ve taken my position and frankly it’s the same position that I took all through the [Alliance] leadership race. I delivered [speeches] everywhere I went, including in the Maritime provinces on several occasions, about the spirit of defeatism in the country and what drives it and how we have to address it.”
    – National Post
“[W]hat we clearly need is experimentation – with market reforms and private delivery options within the public system. And it is only logical that, in a federal state where the provinces operate the public health care systems and regulate private services, that experimentation should occur at the provincial level.”
    – Speech in Charlottetown
“These proposals included cries for billions of new money for social assistance in the name of child poverty and for more business subsidies in the name of cultural identity. In both cases I was sought out as a rare public figure to oppose such projects.”
    – The Bulldog, National Citizens Coalition
“Canada is a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term, and very proud of it…. In terms of the unemployed… don’t feel particularly bad for many of these people. They don’t feel bad about it themselves, as long as they’re receiving generous social assistance and unemployment insurance.”
    – Speech to the US Council for National Policy
“After all, enforced national bilingualism in this country isn’t mere policy. It has attained the status of a religion. It’s a dogma which one is supposed to accept without question…. Make no mistake. Canada is not a bilingual country. In fact it is less bilingual today than it has ever been…. As a religion, bilingualism is the god that failed. It has led to no fairness, produced no unity, and cost Canadian taxpayers untold millions.”
    – Calgary Sun
“You’ve got to remember that west of Winnipeg the ridings the Liberals hold are dominated by people who are either recent Asian immigrants or recent migrants from eastern Canada: people who live in ghettoes and who are not integrated into western Canadian society.”
    – The Report newsmagazine
“For historic reasons that I won’t get into, the Liberal party gets the votes of most Catholics in the country, including many practising Catholics.”
    – Speech to the US Council for National Policy
“I don’t know all the facts on Iraq, but I think we should work closely with the Americans.”
    – The Report newsmagazine
“Fixed election dates prevent governments from calling snap elections for short-term political advantage. They level the playing field for all parties and the rules are clear for everybody.”
    – CBC News
“The government is clear that it will not be seeking an early election. At any time Parliament can defeat the government and provoke an early election, if that is what the opposition irresponsibly chooses to do.”
    – Hansard “..
