Happy New Year

I want to wish all a Happy New Year. I hope each one has a blessed and prosperous 2010.

What will 2010 bring? Will we see and elelction, who knows?
Will we once again see "scandal of the week?" I think the public is sick and tired of them. I am.

Conservatives will have a majority in the Senate, long overdue. The economy will continue to improve. PM Harper and his government will continue (despite the antics of the opposition and the MSM) to govern in the best interests of the Canadian people. He will be hosting the G8 and G20 summits next summer. He is always ten steps ahead of the opposition and the media. That's why we always see faux outrages, he out foxes every last one of them.

The Liberals will continue to have internal problems. They haven't gotten it yet. Dumping Iffy is not going to fix their troubles. Their problem is that they are still arrogant and have that sense of entitlement. Until they recognize that and do something about it, they aren't going to move forward in meaningful way that will attract voters their way. You see leadership is not really the problem. Iffy is not much of a leader but it wouldn't matter who they had right now. They could also apologize for stealing our money through adscam and start paying some restitution toward that. Might help.

I think Jack Layton will keep looking out for Jack Layton. He will do or say whatever he has to to keep his job. I don't think if there is another election and he doesn't improve the Dippers standings he will be around as leader. I see Thomas Mulcair possibly taking over as Dipper boss if that happens.

Gilles is Gilles. He'll see to it that the Blocheads get their pensions and demand more money for Quebec.

On the world scene there's lot's brewing. Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, North Korea, Israel etc. Unfortunately, we'll probably keep hearing of more terror threats too.

In the US they still have the Obamacare bill on the burner, still spending the country into oblivion, and they have their Cap and Trade bill on the agenda too. I don't think that is going to anywhere.
Midterm elections are coming up in November. I think you'll see a surge in Republicans getting elected and a lot of Democrats losing their seats.

The UK has an election too, in late spring and the British Conservatives will win decisively.

Tiger Woods? That's his business.

Don't forget the Olympics. I hope Canada does well and wins a lot of medals. Go Canada go! I'm sure a good time will be had by all.

Put on your seatbelts, I'm sure 201o will be quite a ride.

Once again, Happy New Year, ya all!

Liberal Hypocrisy Again

Oh, the feigned outrage and accusations of abuse of Afghan detainees against our troops and our government.

The Torch (BTW, a very good blog) calls the Liberals out on the detainee issue. Apparently back when they were in government, they were warned too of abuse by diplomats.

"Predate: More from Radio-Canada in April 2007 (via an acute observer):
Prisonniers afghans torturés
Une pratique déjà connue
Google translation:
The former Liberal government had been accused by Canadian diplomats in Kabul in 2003, 2004 and 2005 that torture was commonplace in Afghan prisons.

A report in 2004 the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and obtained by The News reveals that "the surveillance reports of the Independent Commission of Human Rights in Afghanistan indicate that torture remains a common practice for police officers, including the 'stage of the investigation. This measure is used to obtain confessions from detainees. "

In 2005, another report shows that military, police and intelligence services are involved in arbitrary arrests, kidnappings, extortion cases, cases of torture and killings of individuals suspected of having committed crimes. The paper also reported cases of rapes of women, girls and boys by the police commanders and their troops.

An agreement still

Despite warnings from Canadian diplomats, the Paul Martin government has nonetheless signed an agreement with the Afghan government in December 2005, to deliver to the Afghan authorities and non-Americans to all prisoners captured by Canadian soldiers.

In the wake of the controversy surrounding alleged mistreatment of detainees at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo, and torture of prisoners by U.S. soldiers at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, that Canada had taken this decision."

Where is the MSM on this? Have they forgotten? Are they lazy? Or do they want this kept buried so that only the Conservative government is embarrassed?

I think too PM Harper and Minister Mackay needs to call the Libs on this. Where are you? Inform the public, please.

This will eventually come back to bite the Liberals in the butt. They better be awfully careful in their outrage and accusations. This will get out, one way or another.
