Thousands left without power in west Toronto as icy conditions continue

 Cache   

Cars crashed, ice rained down and Santa stayed home. That was the kind of day the GTA had to endure Sunday as the weather took an apocalyptic turn overnight.

Environment Canada foresees flurries and the risk of freezing drizzle Sunday night — with easterly 30 km/h winds gusting to 50 km/h — as the mercury gets down to -3 C.

The flurries are expected to end late Monday morning, when the high will be around freezing. As of 3:25 p.m. a snowfall warning was in effect for Pickering, Oshawa and the southern Durham Region.

Toronto Mayor John Tory tweeted about the extreme winter weather conditions on Sunday pleading for everyone to “please drive with extra caution on our roads” and to “be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get to where you’re going and remember to drive safe and look out for pedestrians.”

Toronto Hydro tweeted Sunday night it was responding to a west-end power outage impacting approximately 6,000 people. People living near and surrounding Bloor Street, the Queensway, Kipling Avenue and Windermere Avenue may have been impacted.

Crews found that a tree branch on a wire had caused the outage, Toronto Hydro said in a tweet.

The Toronto District School Board also said it will be monitoring conditions and will update people on any cancellations in the morning.

Fears of slippery driving conditions were validated on Sunday morning by a 12-car pileup at Davenport Road and Avenue Road.

“We have to make adjustments this time this season,” said Toronto Police Const. David Hopkinson. “I want to illustrate to people that they should slow down and clean their windshields.”

Hopkins says treacherous, icy road conditions played a role in the collision, though no one was injured. The weather wreaked havoc on holiday festivities: Burlington and Mississauga’s Santa Claus Parades, scheduled for Sunday, were cancelled, with Burlington citing “unsafe weather conditions and the declaration of a significant weather event.” Mississauga had expected a crowd of up to 25,000.

Ontario Provincial Police said there were approximately 400 collisions in the GTA.

Outside of the city, provincial police say one person has died in a pileup involving dozens of vehicles in Kingston. Police say the crash happened on Highway 401 at about 2:30 p.m., and involved between 30 and 40 passenger vehicles and big-rig trucks.

Another crash killed a 24-year-old woman in the Niagara region when her Jeep collided with a truck on Sunday, Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said.

Torontonians had been warned of a blustery start to December and ice pellets did indeed descend on Sunday morning. Hopkinson said during the first few snowfalls of the season, accidents are more likely to occur since many road users haven’t adjusted to the change in weather. And as it becomes increasingly dark, reduced visibility also becomes a factor.

After cancelling its annual Santa Claus Parade previously scheduled for today, the City of Burlington also announced on Twitter that the parade cannot be rescheduled due to the massive amount of scheduling and coordination required.

Looking ahead, Tuesday will see a mix of clouds and the first sign of sunshine with a 40 per cent chance of flurries, which will increase to 60 per cent on Wednesday.

On Thursday, the sun may peek again although with a 40 per cent chance of flurries, and finally a mix of sun and clouds on Friday.

Mark Mills, from the city’s road operations department, said everyone should practise “extreme caution and patience on roadways,” defer travel where possible and try to use public transit.

Despite the weather, driving conditions should be better come Monday’s commute as road operations has deployed “snow fighters” to salt roadways, expressways and local roads.

According to Pearson International Airport’s website, many flights were delayed and even cancelled as of Sunday afternoon.

How Do Gender Norms Impact on Men's Mental Health?

 Cache   
For International Men's Day, Michael shares his experiences of how gender norms can impact on men's mental health help-seeking behaviours, experiences, and literacy. 


- Michael Priestley


In thinking about how gender norms impact on men's mental health, it is important to acknowledge that men, like women, are a diverse group and that multiple factors will shape this relationship- such as class, race, and sexuality. I write therefore from my own mental health experiences as a man, and cannot speak for all men.

I understand gender roles as both learned and performed; I act as a man in different ways in different contexts as shaped by the different models of masculinity that I see around me. I see one particularly dominant model of masculinity as follows. Men, as opposed to women: 1) Don't talk about or show emotions; 2) Are brave and physically strong; 3) Have sex with women and 4) Drink beer. Stick to these simple rules society tells us, and we'll all be fine. But will we? Research shows men to be at an increased risk of certain mental health difficulties and death by suicide, and are significantly less likely than women to seek help for their mental health from professionals, friends, or family. In this context, and drawing on my own experiences, I suggest that these dominant gender norms may impact on men's mental health in three main ways:

1) Gender Norms Can Impact on Men's Help-Seeking:
Clearly, if men don't talk about or show emotions and if men are brave and strong, this can make it hard as a man to openly acknowledge and admit that you are struggling with your mental health and ask for help.

2) Gender Norms Can Impact on Men's Emotional Experiences:
As a man, in trying not to show difficult emotions such as sadness, embarrassment, or fear, you can end up trying not to feel these emotions which, in turn, can change the way that you understand, articulate, and experience them. For me, instead of experiencing feelings of sadness or anxiety as something that could be related to my mental health, for which I should probably get help, at the time, I experienced these feelings only as confusion, frustration, or anger with the events or people in my life. Not only this, but by repressing and avoiding how I was actually feeling, these feelings built up to a boiling point and I ended up expressing them in ways that were destructive, both for myself and for others around me.

3) Gender Norms Impact on Men's Mental Health Literacy 
If men don't talk about or show emotions, it can become difficult for men to develop a language in which to express or understand difficult emotions. The problem then is that when men do feel them, they can feel ill-prepared and under-equipped to understand and share these with others, forcing many men into silence and isolation to deal with problems alone.
The point is that, from my experience, not only do gender norms create conditions where it is hard for men to speak up and ask for help for their mental health, they also condition men's emotional experiences and language in ways that, in the long term, can have a negative impact on mental health. In isolation, simply telling men to talk more (whilst obviously very important!), can be an oversimplification of the complex social processes that influence the way that men understand and experience emotion. As a society, we need to develop other models of masculinity, but in the meantime, we also need a new language for recognising, understanding, and responding to men's distinctive mental health experiences as situated within, and mediated by, social gender norms.

These ideas were initially shared as part of an International Men's Day panel discussion organised by Changing Relations; an arts-based education and training company that challenges thinking around gender norms, gender equality, and healthy relationships.

LHMP #274c Dinshaw 1999 Getting Medieval: Sexualities and Communities, Pre- and Post-Modern - Chapter 2

 Cache   

The chapter begins with a summary of the legal records concerning John/Eleanor Rykener who was arrested for prostitution and who confessed to having sex with men as a woman, and with women as a man. [Note: The primary publication concerning this historic record is Karras & Boyd 1996] Of particular relevance to Dinshaw’s theme, Rykener specified having sex with both clerics and nuns. (There is no explicit mention of being paid to have sex with women, as there is when having sex with men.) The court records date to two months prior to the posting of the Lollards’ “Conclusions” (their manifesto of principles) and the Rykener case reads as if designed to illustrate their claims about sexual corruption in the church.

Rykener’s story also has echoes in Chaucer’s “Cook’s Tale,” involving themes of casual prostitution among London’s working class in the late 14th century. But Rykener holds an unusual position in the English legal record, which is generally devoid of accusations of men for prostitution. Prostitution was understood to be an inherently and essentially female crime.

Although originally arrested for suspicion of prostitution (due to female dress and appearance), the investigation shifted to being for sodomy. And yet Rykerer’s entry into the trade involves feminization not only with regard to sexual activity but in occupation (embroiderer).

Using this jumping off point, Dinshaw uses this chapter to explore the questions Rykener’s interrogation raises, comparing this with Chaucer’s queer character of the Pardoner, and with Foucault’s essay on “the life of infamous men.”

Rykener’s crime is described in the text as “vitium...nephandum” (unmentionable vice) which traditionally alludes to sodomy. Yet there are regular references back to “the aforementioned vice”, highlighting it as unspeakable and yet referenced by previous utterance. The interrogatoin involves many layers of “translation”: an English proceeding recorded in Latin, possibly rendered into the formulaic language of confessional manuals. Our ability to retrieve Rykener's own voice is questionable. [Note: I have been shifting to a practice of using they/them pronouns when discussing individuals whose lives crossed gender lines. However this approach has it's own hazards, especially in flattening the data about how their gender was performed and perceived. The transcript of the trial evidence shifts between male and female pronouns for Rykener in ways that reflect both the speaker's attitude and the interpretive layer of the clerk.]

The emphasis on clerical offenses might come from the concerns of the questioners, or from Rykener’s focus in answering, or from the clerk’s own focus in recording the procedings. Rykener appears to cooperate eagerly, but may have shaped their testimony out of fear of the legal penalty for sodomy. (Technically, the death penalty was called for, but very rarely implemented.)

Rykener presents a category crisis. Despite the initial emphasis on male/male sodomy, the emerging details blur categories of gender and sex acts. Rykener’s description of their own actions strictly follows a heterosexual framing: female with men and male with women, dodging the strict definition of sodomy entirely.

Sodomy isn’t the only queer element present. Why would Rykener choose prostitution as a woman (or even embroidery as a woman) over the more profitable options available to even the poorest of men? Practicality and logic suggest this was not simply an economic strategy. Did Rykener’s male clients all believe themselves to be having sex with a woman? Or did they desire sex with someone falling between categories? Women taught Rykener how to be read as a woman and how to play on gender expectations. To what purpose?

Laws that expected a clear gender binary had no way to address the situation. Despite the detailed interrogation, no formal charges were recorded against Rykener--which doesn’t preclude more informal hazards now that their story was out.

Dinshaw compares Rykener’s categorical indeterminacy with the way Chaucer’s Pardoner is presented (and mocked, in-text) as anomalously masculine (with hints that he might be a eunuch). [There follows a great deal of analysis of Chaucer’s use of language and imagery in general.]

The chapter ends with Foucault’s essay “The Life of Infamous Men” on the context and problems of doing history on persons whose lives emerge only from (often antagonistic) texts. [Note: Foucault seems to be playing on both the derogatory sense of “infamous” and a literal sense of “not famous,” that is, men for whom we don’t have multiple textual sources due to the obscurity of their lives.]

Foucault was struck by the power that such ordinary “real existences” have in contrast to the more mythologized lives of the famous. Although his essay is not specifically commenting on queer history, Foucault’s observation is powerful in the context of trying to document and understand queer lives. Texts such as Rykener’s can create affective relations across time that stand apart from any objective unknowable “truth” of their lives.

LHMP #274a Dinshaw 1999 Getting Medieval: Sexualities and Communities, Pre- and Post-Modern - Introduction

 Cache   

This is not fundamentally a book about queer sex in history, it’s a book about the place of sex in the construction of certain historic communities in 14-15th century England, and specifically the place of sexuality in community-identification in relation to Lollard ideas. [Note: it may be useful for the reader to get a brief background in Lollardy from Wikipedia. Basically, it’s a pre-Protestant reformation movement inspired by the teachings of John Wycliffe and his translation of the Bible into English.] Some examples involved in this study are queer or have resonance for modern queer communities. And Dinshaw’s approach includes a queer-aligned examination of how people connect with historic communities across time. So it’s not so much a contribution to queer history as a topic, but to the act of doing queer history as a project.

The introduction (as is usual for a book of this sort) provides a survey of the topics and texts that will be discussed. It begins with a late 14th century verse manual for parish priests. In discussing sexual advice, the manual suggests with regard to sexual sins: “Also written well I find, That of sin against kind [i.e., sin against nature], Thou shalt thy parish nothing teach, Nor of that sin nothing preach.” Dinshaw examines how we can understand what “sin against kind” means in a context where its unspeakability was an essential characteristic. This will be explored further in chapters 1 and 2.

The definition and discussion of types of sexual sin--with the understanding that under some theologies, all sex was inescapably sinful--creates an indeterminate understanding of where same-sex practices fell within it. Some sex acts were simultaneously “against nature” and something that people might fall into through innate desire, as in Gower’s version of the story of Iphis and Ianthe.

Dinshaw discusses the theoretical landscape she’s working in, with a review of existing studies, including the uses of cross-historical affective identification as a type of dissidence and agency. That is: the desire of modern people to identify with people in the past as “like them” gives those modern people both a way of challenging the modern narratives they’re forced into, and a way of taking charge of their own transhistorical identities.

Although viewing cultural phenomena (such as sex) as “fundamentally indeterminate,” Dinshaw does not see this as incompatible with identifying a “usable history” for queer people. In terms of providing identification for community formation, connections across time need not be complete or identical to create “community.”

John Boswell’s Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality” opened an ongoing debate on this topic and is analyzed as a community-building force of its own in Dinshaw’s book. Boswell assembled evidence supporting a conceptual shift in the mid 13th century from a relatively tolerant Christianity and a flourishing self-consciously “gay” urban subculture to a more repressive, intolerant Christianity. Boswell was accused of “white-washing” the church out of a desire for a sense of acceptance (i.e., a desire to find a historic Christian church that allegedly had accepted and embraced homosexuality, as a path to influencing modern Christians to “return” to that state). Boswell’s work serves as an example of the public side of “doing history” in the late 20th century.

Boswell participated in a debate on whether one can say there were “real” gay people in history, or whether sexuality is always an ephemeral cultural construct--the former being an apparent prerequisite for the existence of “gay history.” Apart from the essentially cultural critique, Boswell’s approach has been accused of glossing over institutionalized age-difference aspects of male-male relationships, and of unwarrantedly assuming that his overwhelmingly male data applied to women as well.

Dinshaw discusses Foucault’s reception of Boswell’s work and how it interacted with his own work and approach. She surveys other historians working across the field of the history of sexuality.

Dinshaw uses an analysis of the Lollards as a light on the complexity of identification--how such cultural conflicts are complex, with the sides often having far more in common than not, even while people yearn for simple tests and metrics of truth and deviancy.

One chapter uses the case of John/Eleanor Rykener as an illustration of the elusiveness of categories.

There is much philosophizing to finish up the introduction.

“Merecemos vivir sin miedo”

 Cache   

“Una cosa es escuchar sobre la gente que está siendo detenida y separada todos los días, es otra cosa vivir ese sufrimiento por ti misma,” explica Yolanda Zavala, madre de cinco hijos quien emigró a Carolina del Norte desde Michoacán hace dos décadas. 

En el 2008, el hijo de Yolanda quien apenas tenía 18 años, fue arrestado en el condado de Wake por manejar sin licencia. Lo que debió de haber sido una citación sencilla se volvió en uno de los momentos más dolorosos en la vida de Yolanda. Su hijo pasó seis meses en un centro de detención y eventualmente se convirtió en una de las primeras personas deportadas bajo el programa de 287(g) en el condado de Wake, un programa que autoriza a oficiales policiacos para poder ayudar a Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE) a detener y deportar a miembros de la comunidad que son indocumentados. 

Yolanda canalizó el dolor de la experiencia de su hijo para convertirse en una defensora de su comunidad. Por los últimos diez años, Yolanda ha estado luchando contra narrativas anti-inmigrantes, las mismas que pintaron a su hijo como un criminal y que han impactado a varios miembros de su familia. “Vivimos sabiendo que en cualquier momento ICE puede deportarte. He pasado muchas noches pensando que pasaría si arrestaran algún otro de mis hijos, esperando esa llamada. Cada vez que dejamos nuestra casa nunca tenemos confianza en que vamos a regresar.” El yerno de Yolanda también se encontró atrapado en la máquina de deportación de ICE. Ella fue testigo de cómo sus nietos se quedaban esperando por la puerta a su papá, sin poder explicar que no regresaría. En Carolina del Norte, miles de miembros de la comunidad han sido deportados bajo el programa de 287(g). 

A pesar de las tácticas de miedo usadas por políticos anti-inmigrantes, no hay evidencia de que deportaciones o cooperación con ICE incremente la seguridad de la comunidad. Al contrario, estos acuerdos dañan la seguridad pública para todos los residentes. Estudios conducidos por la Universidad de Illinois y el Centro de Progreso Americano han demostrado que cuando las autoridades locales ayudan a oficiales federales de inmigración, gente que es víctima o testigos de un crimen—sin importar su estatus inmigratorio—son menos probables a contactar a la policía debido al miedo de que puedan investigar el estatus inmigratorio de sus familiares o conocidos. Otro estudio conducido por el Instituto Cato en el 2018 tampoco encontró evidencia de que estos acuerdos con ICE reduzcan el crimen. También la Universidad de Carolina del Norte muestra que más de 86% de la gente puesta en procedimientos de deportación gracias al programa de 287(g) fueron arrestados por delitos menores, con 32% siendo violaciones de tráfico.

Comunidades por todo el estado están resistiendo a ICE, y el movimiento para desmantelar la vía de deportación en Carolina del Norte ha tenido victorias históricas este último año. Organización comunitaria lideró la terminación del programa de 287(g) en los condados de Wake y Mecklenburg, los condados más grandes en el estado, y ayudaron a elegir nuevos alguaciles en esos condados y a otros que hicieron campañas pro-inmigrantes, incluyendo los condados de Buncombe, Forsyth, Guilford, y Durham. Cuando legisladores anti-inmigrantes trabajaron con ICE para pasar la propuesta de ley, H.B. 370, que amenazaba con destituir a los alguaciles elegidos democráticamente si rehusaban usar recursos locales para cooperar con ICE, grupos de pro-derechos inmigrantes, la ACLU, y otros se unieron para derrotar esta propuesta de ley, que por último fue vetada por el Gobernador Roy Cooper.

Pero la campaña para lograr un estado libre de redadas y deportación de ICE sigue. Cuatro condados—Cabarrus, Gaston, Henderson, y Nash—siguen participando en el programa de 287(g), y muchos otros siguen deteniendo gente sin el debido proceso cuando se los pide ICE. No pararemos de luchar hasta que estos acuerdos voluntarios con ICE estén completamente desmantelados. 

Cuando alguien es llevado bajo custodia por ICE y es deportado, tiene un efecto dominó que toca e interrumpe la vida diaria de la comunidad entera sean niños, padres, compañeros de trabajo, o vecinos. 

Griselda Alonso sabe lo que es tener que vivir con la preocupación constante de que ICE detenga a un miembro de la familia a cualquier momento. “La salud mental de nuestros hijos ha sido gravemente perjudicada, ya que día con día el cerco de conocer a alguien que ha sido deportado se va acercando más y más a ti, lo cual aun sin que queramos, nuestros hijos sienten el miedo reflejado en los ojos de su madre al ver que está manejando y un policía se le acerca por la parte de atrás,” continúa, “Ese mismo miedo ha sido llevado a las aulas de las escuelas, ya que su rendimiento escolar no es el mismo y como va ser el mismo si un día anterior un vecino, un amigo o un familiar ha sido deportado.” Para ella, un estado libre de ICE significaría que su hija no se tiene que imaginar lo peor cada vez que su mamá maneja y se arriesga a ser parada por la policía. 

“Muchos de nuestros familiares, incluyendo a nuestros hijos, son ciudadanos,” dice Griselda. “Día a día contribuimos a este estado, pagamos nuestros impuestos y merecemos vivir con dignidad, con respeto, pero sobre todo sin miedo.”

Martha Hernández emigró de la Ciudad de México a los 17 años buscando estabilidad y libertad de persecución, que encontró en Carolina del Norte con sus dos hijos. Sin embargo, cada mañana antes de irse al trabajo, como mucha gente en su comunidad, se fija para ver si hay carros sospechosos. “Somos mamás que trabajamos duro todos los días pero todavía hacemos tiempo para reunirnos todas las semanas para ver cómo podemos proteger a nuestras familias y mejorar nuestra comunidad.”

Martha, Yolanda, y Griselda trabajan tiempo completo, organizan eventos culturales, y han estado al frente del movimiento para terminar la colaboración entre la policía local de Carolina del Norte e ICE desde la incepción del programa de 287(g) en el condado de Wake. “Este movimiento no es solo de nosotras, también incluye las caras de la gente que se va directamente del trabajo a protestar, a los que traen a sus hijos a las juntas, y a los que van a cabildear aunque tengan miedo,” dice Martha. “Cada uno de nuestros triunfos es algo que todos trabajamos para lograr.”

Gracias a su activismo, y al apoyo de la comunidad de Carolina del Norte, estas tres mujeres tienen la esperanza de que seguiremos acercándonos a la comunidad que queremos tener. La nieta de Yolanda de 18 años, le describió el sentimiento dulce-amargo de poder votar por primera vez por un alguacil que prometió terminar el programa que fue responsable por la deportación de su padre cuando era niña. 

“Solo queremos vivir en paz, con dignidad, y sin miedo,” explica Martha. “Sacar a ICE de Carolina del Norte significaría no tener que vivir con la ansiedad emocional y la incertidumbre sobre lo que te pueda pasar cada vez que salgas fuera de tu casa. Quiero tener la tranquilidad de no tener que preocuparme de lo que vaya a pasarme camino a mi casa y a mis hijos. Solo así respiraré con alivio y podré decir que realmente soy libre.”

“We Deserve to Live Without Fear”

 Cache   

 “It’s one thing to know that people are being detained and separated every day. It’s another to experience that pain and suffering for yourself,” explains Yolanda Zavala, a mother of five who immigrated to North Carolina from southern Mexico more than two decades ago. 

In 2008, Yolanda’s 18-year-old son was arrested in Wake County for driving without a license on his way back from a soccer game. What should’ve been a simple citation turned into one of the most painful moments of Yolanda’s life. Her son spent six months in detention centers and eventually became one of the first people in Wake County to be deported under 287(g), a federal program that deputizes local law enforcement to help Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) target, jail, and deport community members who are undocumented. 

Yolanda channeled the pain of her son’s experience by becoming an advocate for her community. For the last ten years, Yolanda has been fighting a widespread anti-immigrant narrative that painted her son as a criminal and has impacted multiple members of her family. “We live knowing that any day ICE can deport you,” she said. “I’ve stayed up so many nights thinking about my other children being arrested and waiting for that call. Every time we leave the house we are never confident that we will return home.” Yolanda’s son-in-law was also ensnared in ICE’s deportation machine. She watched her grandchildren sit by the front door and wait for their dad to come home for days, unable to explain that he wasn’t coming back. Tens of thousands of community members have been deported from North Carolina under the 287(g) program.

Despite the fear-mongering of anti-immigrant politicians, there is no evidence that mass deportations or local cooperation with ICE makes communities safer. If anything, these agreements harm public safety for all residents. Studies from the University of Illinois and the Center for American Progress have shown that when local authorities partner with federal immigration officers, people who are victims or witnesses of crime – regardless of their immigration status – are far less likely to contact law enforcement out of fear that they would investigate the immigration status of friends or relatives. A 2018 study from the libertarian Cato Institute found no evidence that partnerships with ICE reduce crime rates. And another study from the University of North Carolina showed that more than 86 percent of people placed in deportation proceedings through 287(g) agreements in North Carolina were arrested for misdemeanors, 32 percent for traffic violations.  

Communities across our state are resisting ICE, and the movement to dismantle the deportation pipeline in North Carolina achieved historic victories in the last year. Community organizing helped end the 287(g) programs in Wake and Mecklenburg counties, the two biggest in the state, and elect new sheriffs in those counties and others who campaigned on pro-immigrant platforms, including Buncombe, Forsyth, Guilford, and Durham. When anti-immigrant legislators partnered with ICE to pass House Bill 370, which threatened to remove democratically elected sheriffs from office if they refused to spend local resources to cooperate with ICE, immigrants’ rights groups, the ACLU, and others banded together to fight the bill, which was ultimately vetoed by Gov. Roy Cooper. 

But the campaign for a North Carolina free from ICE raids and deportations is far from over. Four counties - Cabarrus, Gaston, Henderson, and Nash - remain in the 287(g) program, and most others continue to detain people when ICE asks without due process. We won’t stop fighting until these voluntary local partnerships with ICE are fully dismantled.

When someone is taken into custody by ICE and deported, it has a ripple effect that touches and disrupts the daily lives of their entire community: children, spouses, co-workers, neighbors, and more. 

Griselda Alonso knows what it’s like to live with the constant worry that ICE can detain a member of your family at any time, including her own. “The mental health of our children has been gravely impacted, given that day to day we become closer to having someone around us be deported, and without us even wanting to, our fear is reflected in the eyes of a mother as she drives and a police car pulls behind her,” she says. “That same fear has been transferred to our children’s schools, as many of our children’s education is impacted by them knowing that the day before a neighbor, a friend, or a family member has been deported.” For her, a North Carolina free from ICE would mean that her teenage daughter would no longer need to brace herself for the worst every time her mother drives and risks being pulled over. 

“Many of our family members, including our children, are U.S. citizens,” Griselda says. “We work, we pay taxes, and we deserve to live without fear.”

Martha Hernandez migrated from Mexico City at 17 looking for stability and freedom from persecution, which she has found in North Carolina with her two children. Still, every morning before she goes to work, like many people in her community, she checks for suspicious cars.  “ We’re moms who work hard every day but still make time to meet every week to figure out how to protect our families and improve our community.”  

Martha, Yolanda, and Griselda all work full-time jobs, organize cultural events, and have been leading the movement to end the collaboration between North Carolina local enforcement and ICE since the inception of the 287(g) program in Wake County. “This movement is not just about us, it also includes the faces of those who go straight from work to protest, who bring their kids along to meetings, and those who show up to lobby despite their fear,” said Martha. “Each and every one of our triumphs is something that we all worked for.”

Thanks to their organizing, and the support of North Carolinians across the state, these three women hope we are inching closer to the community they are trying to build. Yolanda’s 18-year-old granddaughter described to her the bittersweet feeling of being able to cast her first vote for a sheriff who vowed to eliminate the program that had deported her dad when she was a child. 

“We just want to live in peace, dignity, and no more fear,” says Martha. “Getting ICE out of North Carolina would mean not living with the emotional anxiety and uncertainty about what will happen every time you step out of your house. I want to have the tranquility of not having to worry about what is going to happen to me on my way home to my children. Only then will I breathe a sigh of relief and be able to say that I am truly free.”

Can-opener bridge, recently raised 8 inches, claims another victim

 Cache   

When the infamous 11-foot-8 bridge of Durham, North Carolina was raised 8 inches last month, fans of the videos showing trucks getting their tops sheared off were bummed out. But it looks like their despair was premature.

From the 11-foot-8 YouTube channel:

On November 26, the new 12foot4 canopener tried to snag its first truck, but it only managed to get a nibble! Still, we're counting it as "crash #151" since the truck was clearly damaged. I actually collected the piece that fell off :)

The NDP is complicit in imperialist violence in Bolivia

 Cache   

NDP leader Jagmeet Singh speaks at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa on Sunday, October 15, 2017. Photo by Obert Madondo (Flickr).

Editor’s Note: Less than an hour after this article was published, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh issued statements on Facebook and Twitter, calling on the Trudeau government to “condemn the anti-democratic actions” that led to the coup in Bolivia. Singh’s statement, however, does not clarify whether or not the NDP believes Morales should be allowed to run in a future election.

It’s now been four days since the right-wing coup in Bolivia, where President Evo Morales — the first Indigenous president of the Indigenous-majority Latin American county — was violently ousted by military forces backed by the United States and Canada. 

The new self-proclaimed president of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, is a Christian fundamentalist who has a litany of anti-Indigenous statements to her name, including “I dream of a Bolivia free of Indigenous satanic rites, the city is not for ‘Indians,’ they better go to the highlands or El Chaco.”

Police officers cut Indigenous flags off their uniforms, while one of Áñez’s far-right accomplices brought a Bible to the presidential palace in La Paz with the assertion: “[Indigenous goddess] Pachamama will never return. Today Christ is returning to the Government Palace. Bolivia is for Christ.” What has taken place is unequivocally a fascist, theocratic coup.

There are many theories about the motivating factors for the coup (and it objectively is a coup: Áñez has taken power without Morales resigning in accordance with the constitution and she has since banned him from running in the next election).

Some have speculated that Bolivia’s immense lithium deposits may have been the Iraq oil to this overthrow, with corporations thirsty for privatization of the resource critical to building batteries for electric vehicles; some experts have pushed back at this reading as overly simplistic. 

But here is what we do know, well summarized by Sioux academic Nick Estes in an excellent article for the Guardian:

Evo and his party, the Indigenous-led Movement for Socialism (MAS in Spanish), nationalized key industries and used bold social spending to shrink extreme poverty by more than half, lowering the country’s Gini coefficient, which measures income inequality, by a remarkable 19%. During Evo’s and MAS’s tenure, much of Bolivia’s Indigenous-majority population has, for the first time in their lives, lived above poverty.


Morales and the MAS were leaders of the so-called Pink Tide in Latin America, a continental force that has worked to resist neoliberalism and assert national sovereignty over land and resources. Many of these efforts have been crippled by right-wing sabotage and outright assault, including the incarceration of Lula in Brazil and attempted overthrowing of Maduro in Venezuela. Others have betrayed leftist movements, like Lenín Moreno in Ecuador. The movement has certainly been weakened. But Indigenous peoples and trade unionists keep fighting for their lives, even as Morales himself was forced to flee to Mexico to avoid potential assassination. The struggle for socialism continues.

This is a coup with massive repercussions, not only for the people of Bolivia and Latin America but for the left around the world. It requires immediate and unequivocal opposition like that displayed by political heavyweights including UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and union bodies like AFL–CIO, National Nurses United, and the Durham Region Labour Council. The latter called on the Ontario Federation of Labour to “write a public statement that denounces Canada’s support for this coup and calls for our government to support the restoration of democracy and the safe return of Evo Morales.”

It is best summarized as a lowest common denominator response. A statement does not constitute action, only the beginning of organizing against this act of imperialism. 

Yet the NDP, Canada’s supposedly leftist party of labour and solidarity, cannot bring itself to issue a statement condemning the coup. Over the last four days, in spite of consistent demands from NDP membership and allies, the party has refused to even acknowledge that a coup has taken place, let alone issue a strong statement to draw the public’s attention to it. 

In fact, instead of issuing a statement on Bolivia, the NDP published one about fighter jet procurement which bragged of how “men and women are working miracles to make the CF-18s work.” Meanwhile, the party’s defense critic, Randall Garrison, has quote tweeted the Israel Defense Forces while slandering Palestinian resistance as “Islamic Jihad.”

Compare this to a statement issued by the Communist Party of Canada on the day of the coup: “The Communist Party demands that the safety of President Morales and other MAS leaders is protected by Bolivian authorities, and that the Canadian government and the international community must add their voices to this demand.”

This silence from the NDP is a cowardly betrayal of immense proportions. To many, it is not a surprising one given the NDP’s history of complicity in imperialism such as twice voting to bomb Libya and refusing calls to condemn a similar coup in Haiti when Jack Layton was leader.

The NDP has also supported Canada’s training of the fascist-infiltrated Ukraine army, and complained that new military spending is not being released quickly enough.

This particular moment matters because leftists were told repeatedly throughout the federal election that Jagmeet Singh and his team of NDP candidates were different; that they would be pursuing a “New Deal for the People” (whatever that means) and that it was the most leftist campaign in a generation, grounded in commitments to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and challenging of billionaire power.

Many young activists were drawn into the party through organizations like Our Time, helping to canvass and door-knock for candidates who they believed represented a different vision. To be sure, five or so NDP MPs have individually spoken out against the coup: Leah Gazan, Niki Ashton, Jenny Kwan, Matthew Green, and Don Davies. These statements follow consistent support for other principled anti-imperialist struggles like Gazan’s participation in an anti-coup panel when right-wing forces were attempting to overthrow Maduro. Ashton, too, has been an increasingly strong ally to the struggle for Palestinian statehood and an end to Israeli military occupation.

Unfortunately, statements from individual politicians do not constitute a party position. Unless forwarded by the leader and party itself, they remain mere tweets that, while appreciated, cannot translate into helping anti-imperialist social movements fight back against the coup. The response to this violent overthrow of an Indigenous leader of a socialist country was a litmus test for the party leadership: one that it has failed miserably, and should reiterate to leftists why the NDP is not our ally but rather an accessory to imperialist violence.

Rather than mobilize its supporters to rally and advocate for Bolivian comrades facing incredible oppression from far-right radicals, Singh and his team have opted to stay silent and instead gloat about meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to talk about national pharmacare.

It is clear that the NDP’s “love and courage” extends only to people in Canada, not those in the Global South whose resources Canadian companies plunder and kill for.

However, for leftists who have been long critical of the NDP for its actions both provincially and federally on issues such as foreign policy, policing and incarceration, and fossil fuel extraction, this betrayal should not be taken as an opportunity to pull an “I told you so” about the party and leave it at that.

We must continue to pressure and shame the NDP to do what is right, of course, but more importantly work to build up anti-imperialist movements that can host rallies, panel discussions, office occupations, and outreach campaigns in the coming weeks and months to oppose ever-increasing hostilities to the left in the Global South and include young leftists disillusioned with the NDP’s silence.

Indigenous communities and trade unionists in Bolivia are under deadly assault. The NDP has made it abundantly clear in its silence where it stands on this reality: tacit support, consistent with its silence on the paramilitary raid in Unist’ot’en territory

We must realize that the NDP cannot and will not be our saviours. Even if the party does eventually muster the requisite courage to release a statement, it is almost guaranteed it will not mobilize its resources to fight for it. This should be taken as a reminder that Singh and his senior staff do not care about anti-imperialism and the Global South. They care only about appealing to existing ideological frameworks for votes. The way the party will shift its position is with incredible pressure from community organizers.

We are left to do the work that any legitimate leftist party would be leading: to advocate in our unions, faith communities, and classrooms for Morales to be guaranteed safe return to Bolivia to continue his party’s work of Indigenous socialism.

We cannot have climate justice without being committed to anti-imperialist struggle. This is an opportunity to coalesce fights against mining companies and oil and gas extraction with right-wing violence against Indigenous communities in the Global South and North. A bourgeois, barely social democratic party will not do that for us. It has made its decision. Now we must make ours.

Alan Dershowitz: Ukraine Dispute Is About Policy, Not Lawbreaking; If Trump Is Impeached It Will Be Partisan

 Cache   
Attorney Alan Dershowitz joined FNC's Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" to give his take on the first week of public impeachment inquiry hearings into President Trump:
MARIA BARTIROMO, FOX NEWS: What do you think your takeaway is from the last couple of weeks of these public hearings to impeach President Trump. ALAN DERSHOWITZ: I think these hearings demonstrate beyond any doubt. That these criteria have not been met. They're all about policies, do you agree or disagree with how the president handled Ukraine. Those are reasonable bases deciding who to vote for, but nothing I've seen during these weeks of the impeachment testimony has moved the ball at all toward impeachment. If he is impeached it will be partisan. BARTIROMO: It has been the process that the republicans are really complaining about. The fact that Devin Nunes can't yield his time to somebody else or the fact that the Republicans can't call their own witnesses without checking with Adam Schiff. What is your reaction to the process? DERSHOWITZ: It is very, very unfair. I mean the impeachment process is quasi-criminal in nature and the person being accused is supposed to have rights comparable to the rights of somebody being accused of a crime. The constitution talks about high crimes and misdemeanors yet the process is screwed and one-sided and partisan. It was Alexander Hamilton said quite clearly we do not want a partisan process where impeach turns on who has the most votes. That is what is going on. BARTIROMO: Lindsey Graham has been on this program saying it is dead on arrival in the senate unless we interview the whistle-blower. Yet they're tiptoeing around the whistleblower. What do you think about that? Should the whistleblower come out to explain these charges? DERSHOWITZ: He will or she will, eventually, we don't know who it is. There is no doubt this can't go forward to the Senate without a full opportunity to cross-examine all of the relevant witnesses and republicans will be able to subpoena the whistleblower. We have to balance the right of the whistleblower against retaliation against the right of the person to produce witnesses. BARTIROMO: Let me ask about the upcoming I.G. report. We're expecting the I.G. report out December 9th. We've been following the story for three years. Our audience feels like they know exactly what happened, that Donald Trump was framed in 2016. What are you expecting from the John Durham now criminal investigation? DERSHOWITZ: We're getting for the first time non-partisan, objective reports, both by the inspector general and by the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut. The American public is craving an objective analysis rather than the partisan analyses we've been getting. So I think we'll get some very useful information that will allow the American public to decide who is at fault. What I don't want is to see weaponizing the criminal justice system. I don't want to see the Democrats weaponizing it. I don't want to see the Republicans weaponizing it. Let's reserve the criminal justice system for real crimes, not political sins.

Notes de lecture. Jacques Houle, Disparaître. Afflux migratoire et avenir du Québec (texte intégral)

 Cache   

Notes de lecture. Jacques Houle, Disparaître. Afflux migratoire et avenir du Québec,
préface de Mathieu Bock-Côté, Liber, 2019.

Depuis Lord Durham, la nation originaire de la Nouvelle-France est sujette à des accès récurrents d’angoisse de disparition. Déjà en 1840, Étienne Parent s’était résigné à l’assimilation promise aux Canadiens français. Vaguement rassurée par la portion d’État qui leur était dévolue à la fondation du pays, et surtout par l’édification d’une solide armature ecclésiale porteuse de la nation, les Canadiens français n’en restaient pas moins catastrophés par la saignée démographique vers les États-Unis ainsi que par l’anglicisation galopante des minorités de la diaspora. Celle de la Nouvelle-Angleterre rendait les armes à la fin des années 1920; quarante ans plus tard, la nation elle-même s’amputait officiellement de celles du Canada, pour se replier sur le territoire du Québec. Entretemps, Lionel Groulx s’était efforcé de ranimer ce «petit peuple de l’espèce tragique», de ceux qui ne savent pas s’ils existeront encore demain, tandis que Victor Barbeau fustigeait les clercs se gargarisant de lieux communs sur «les raisons qu’ont les Canadiens français de ne pas désespérer». «Vous n’êtes pas écœurés de mourir, bandes de caves», affichera plus tard l’artiste sur les murs du Grand Théâtre de Québec, érigé à la gloire du centenaire de la (Con)fédération. Plus flegmatique, Jacques Ferron se souciait surtout «qu’au moins le croque-mort sache qui il prépare pour sa dernière parade ».

Au seuil de l’avènement du Parti québécois – le seul qu’aura peut-être connu le Québec à avoir des politiques dignes de ce nom – Pierre Vadeboncœur publiait un prophétique Génocide en douce de ce peuple qui avait eu «la vocation de la défaite et l’insolence de subsister quand même*». Au banc des accusés : «l’infamie capitaliste », « diamétralement incompatible [avec] la protection du milieu écologique, la pauvreté [...] et l’avenir humain**». (La pauvreté, s’entend, pas la misère, à savoir une immunité au «poison de l’idée d’enrichissement***»). Et secondairement, le racisme anti-québécois. Le pronostic était sombre: «tout se décidera [...] d’ici un demi-siècle peut-être, peut-être moins [...] et pour toujours si [les Québécois] sont vaincus****». Nous y sommes.

Les perspectives de population pour les années 1980, établies par les démographes de 1960, ont été radicalement démenties par une chute aussi brutale qu’imprévue de la fécondité, renforcée par un déficit migratoire interprovincial chronique. Au lieu du minimum de huit millions attendu, la population du Québec n’avait atteint que les six millions. À l’inverse, les pronostics les plus optimistes de 1980, si on faisait l’hypothèse d’un redressement de la fécondité et d’un solde migratoire modestement positif, reportaient aux années 2020 le huit millions en question, qui fut pourtant atteint une décennie plus tôt. Non par un redressement de la fécondité: par la hausse de la longévité ainsi que par l’afflux migratoire. On estime le taux de rétention de ces immigrants à 80%. Nonobstant le solde migratoire interprovincial, immigrants et natifs confondus, qui est resté négatif, fluctuant dans une large fourchette autour de dix mille selon la conjoncture de l’emploi, ça laisse un bon surplus dû à l’immigration internationale, surtout après la hausse amorcée en 2007 et que le présent gouvernement s’est empressé d’entériner. Bref, plus de vieux pas pressés de mourir, plus d’immigrants moins pressés de repartir, mais pas beaucoup plus d’enfants.

Contre le vieillissement de la population, la pénurie de main-d’œuvre ou l’amélioration des finances publiques, l’immigration est un «remède imaginaire» rétorquaient en 2011 le spécialiste en politiques publiques Benoît Dubreuil et son complice, le démographe Guillaume Marois. «L’effet de l’immigration sur la prospérité du Québec est marginal mais son effet sur la composition de la population est à la fois profond et durable*****». Les rares experts consultés par le gouvernement Charest s’étaient montrés très réticents à une hausse de l’immigration. «Nous sommes déjà débordés de néo-Québécois qu’on est incapable d’intégrer» au marché du travail, déclarait entre autres le réputé économiste Pierre Fortin en 2008******.

Dubreuil et Marois annonçaient s’en tenir strictement sur le plan de la démographie et de l’économie, tout en reconnaissant qu’il existait d’autres dimensions au problème de l’immigration. En s’appuyant sur quelques données de cette étude, enrichies de mises à jour récentes, Jacques Houle, ancien cadre à Emploi et Immigration Canada, ramène dans le décor l’angoisse de la disparition. Il ne s’agit pas seulement d’un processus endogène, par sous-fécondité, mais d’une immersion sous l’afflux migratoire. Plutôt qu’un diagnostic rationnel empiriquement fondé, affranchi de la rectitude politique et tenant sous contrôle ses propres positions politiques, à la manière de ses prédécesseurs de 2011, il présente un vigoureux réquisitoire, développé en sept chapitres de longueur variable. D’abord un rappel historique sur «l’ethnocide de la nation française d’Amérique du Nord [...] bien enclenché dès 1851» (p. 21), suivi de quelques données sur l’évolution de l’immigration jusqu’à aujourd’hui, y inclus les irréguliers et les «bébés passeport» (nés d’une mère étrangère venue accoucher en sol québécois, qui obtiennent ainsi la citoyenneté canadienne, ouvrant plus tard la porte pour toute la famille). Houle s’arrête plus longuement sur le thème de la «désintégration de la majorité historique», qui est le cœur de son propos, en insistant sur la situation de Montréal. Par «majorité historique», il entend évidemment la nation de ceux qui se nommaient jadis Canadiens, puis Canadiens-Français, édulcorés en Canadiens français, puis Québécois et qui n’ont plus aujourd’hui ni de nom propre ni de définition précise. Dans le même paragraphe en introduction (p. 29), on lit «majorité d’ascendance canadienne-française», ce qui exclut les nombreux assimilés, souvent repérables à leur patronyme exotique ou leur faciès un peu sombre. Et «majorité de langue maternelle française», ce qui inclut les minorités audibles telles que les Franco-Québécois (immigrants français). Puis «majorité historique francophone», ce qui est à la fois plus juste et plus vague. Quoi qu’il en soit, cette «majorité historique» est devenue minoritaire sur l’île de Montréal; c’est l’anglais qu’il faut maîtriser pour pouvoir travailler; les immigrants refusent de participer aux cours de francisation; un enfant d’immigrant sur cinq s’identifie à la majorité – vraisemblablement parmi ceux qui sont issus d’un mariage mixte.

L’afflux d’immigrants se traduit par l’anglicisation de Montréal et la formation de ghettos ethniques. «La généralisation du bilinguisme comme critère d’embauche s’est faite sans que l’employeur ait même à le justifier» (p. 50). Il aurait fallu «aller moins vite» et ajuster l’immigration «à notre capacité réelle d’absorption linguistique, culturelle et sociétale » (p. 46). Contrairement aux gouvernements péquistes, les Libéraux ont persisté à maintenir un haut niveau d’immigration sous divers prétextes économiques, au premier chef: la pénurie de main-d’œuvre. Or il n’y a pas de pénurie de main-d’œuvre qualifiée, celle qui est censée répondre aux critères de sélection du Québec, mais au contraire pénurie d’emplois qualifiés. Le cri d’alarme des employeurs concerne principalement la main-d’œuvre peu qualifiée et mal payée: «secteurs de la restauration-hébergement, du tourisme, du commerce au détail, des centres d’appel, des services et des soins aux personnes» (p. 89). Le véritable motif de cette immigration trop massive et mal ciblée saute au nez: «Les Néo-Québécois, issus de l’immigration, à l’instar des Anglo-Québécois, votent de manière quasi unanime et à des niveaux soviétiques pour le PLQ et contre la souveraineté.» (p. 58)

Contre « la disparition programmée du peuple québécois » (p. 106), Houle propose le modèle japonais, société démographiquement très vieille, où l’immigration est marginale, qui supplée à la pénurie de main-d’œuvre par la robotisation et qui a su conserver sa prospérité économique tout en préservant son homogénéité culturelle. Les «solutions claires et énergiques» (p. 117) qu’il propose restent tout de même un peu molles ou irréalistes. Un retour au seuil de 30 000 immigrants choisis en fonction de «la plus grande proximité culturelle possible» (p. 118)? Pourquoi ne pas abolir simplement tout le programme des immigrants économiques, sauf pour cette catégorie d’emplois où les besoins en main-d’œuvre vont inévitablement croître, à savoir les soins aux personnes âgées? Il resterait encore tous les réfugiés politiques à qui le Québec offre l’hospitalité, depuis les Hongrois de 1956 jusqu’aux récents Syriens, en passant par les Chiliens de 1973, les Vietnamiens, les Libanais, les Haïtiens… en attente des réfugiés écologiques, qui ne vont pas tarder. Quant aux immigrants économiques, ils ne demandent pas l’hospitalité, seulement l’autorisation de venir s’installer ici, ce qui n’est pas tout à fait équivalent.

Houle préconise aussi de récupérer au Québec l’entière compétence en matière d’immigration, en s’inspirant de la «pugnacité» de Maurice Duplessis dans le dossier de l’impôt provincial (p. 127). Et la robotisation des industries dans le secteur manufacturier, le commerce de détail, les institutions financières et les mines (p. 129), de façon à économiser le besoin de main-d’œuvre. Pourquoi ne fermerait-on pas plutôt plusieurs entreprises dans les secteurs écologiquement nuisibles, si rentables soient-ils dans le système économique actuel, telles que les mines ou le tourisme? Encourager la natalité par «la promotion enthousiaste de la famille» (p. 132)? Il serait plus réaliste de «changer la mentalité» de l’école, appelée à favoriser l’assimilation d’enfants d’immigrants en leur transmettant une «culture publique commune» plutôt que de leur inculquer l’idéologie multiculturelle. «L’impératif de la dispersion hors Montréal par la régionalisation» (p. 123)? Il existe une petite proportion d’immigrants à Québec et en régions, qui n’ont guère le choix que de s’intégrer; pourquoi y exporterait-on le problème de Montréal?

Dans sa préface, Mathieu Bock-Côté relie la question de l’immigration à celle de la souveraineté, en ramenant dans le décor la célèbre déclaration de Parizeau au soir du référendum de 1995, qu’il cite incorrectement, comme tout un chacun, même en connaissance de cause – Dubreuil et Marois le signalent par une mise entre crochets du [les] – donnant ainsi à comprendre « le vote des ethniques», ce qui comporte la même différence avec l’exact «des votes ethniques» que le vote des syndiqués avec un vote syndical ou le vote des femmes avec un vote féministe. Il faisait bien sûr référence à une coalition juive-grecque-italienne appelant leurs congénères à voter (ethniquement) pour le NON. Déclaration «déplacée» jugent Dubreuil et Marois – aurait-il pu la placer ailleurs? Ce qu’il y avait là de contestable, en fait, c’est que Parizeau n’exprimait que la moindre partie de la vérité; l’important, il l’avait dit durant la campagne référendaire, à savoir qu’on n’avait pas besoin des ethniques pour faire la souveraineté – déclaration qui n’est pas passée à l’histoire. Effectivement, ce n’aurait pas été trop demander aux Québéquiens de se prononcer aux deux tiers pour eux-mêmes. On peut ainsi considérer que la souveraineté a été perdue dans le ventre mou de Québec, où il n’y a pas suffisamment d’immigrants pour alerter la conscience nationale, plutôt que chez les ethniques de Montréal. «Si on ne l’a pas eu, c’est qu’on ne l’a pas mérité», philosophait Gilles Vigneault.

Le solide texte de Bock-Côté pose clairement le problème, en radicalisant le diagnostic de l’auteur. Le peuple québécois «se laisse intégrer dans un nouveau peuple montréalais multiculturel et bilingue [...] comme en témoigne le rejet viscéral d’une éventuelle charte de la laïcité [...] dans un processus de sécession mentale avec le Québec » (p. 15). Le préfacier ne propose pas de solution concrète, tout en refusant de déclarer forfait. Il y a lieu d’être plus pessimiste. Coincée entre la dictature de la mondialisation et le gouvernement des juges, l’instance politique n’a plus beaucoup d’autre pouvoir que la gestion à la petite semaine des problèmes sociaux. Les jeunes gens se désintéressent donc du politique, la souveraineté ne les interpelle plus, ils nagent dans la culture américaine, parlent des deux côtés de la bouche et déplorent de n’avoir pas été autorisés à fréquenter l’école anglaise. Ça ne fait pas une grosse perspective d’avenir. Disparaître? Pour le moment, la nation s’estompe en douce sur l’île de Montréal, tandis que le résidu de l’ancien empire français d’Amérique se rétracte sur le reste du Québec.

Una conferenza internazionale alla Durham University
Nel novembre scorso, all’Università di Durham, nel Nord dell’Inghilterra…

Durham. Nel novembre scorso, all’Università di Durham, nel Nord dell’Inghilterra, si è tenuta una conferenza internazionale nella ricorrenza dell’ottavo centenario dell’incontro di San Francesco con il Sultano.

Alla conferenza, intitolata "L'eredità francescana: dal 13° al 21° secolo”, hanno partecipato quasi 200 persone provenienti da tutto il mondo. Il Center for Catholic Studies dell'Università di Durham ha ospitato questo evento su iniziativa di Fr. James Boner OFMCap, Ministro provinciale dei Frati Cappuccini della Gran Bretagna.

Questa conferenza accademica ha visto la partecipazione di frati e suore francescani della tradizione cattolica e anglicana; inoltre, i laici di varie confessioni cristiane e quelli di fede musulmana si sono incontrati per ascoltare gli oratori che hanno parlato dell'importanza dell'eredità francescana, alla luce della celebrazione di questo storico anniversario.

Tra i relatori principali c'erano, fra gli altri, la prof.ssa Richard Cross, la sig.ra Ilia Delio OSF, la prof.ssa Mary Heimann, il prof. John McCafferty, il Fr. William Short OFM, la prof.ssa Mona Siddiqui, il prof. John V. Tolan, il cardinale Fitzgerald, la dott.ssa Kristen Suenens e Fr. Jason Wells OFM.

La nutrita presenza dei Frati Cappuccini, provenienti da varie parti del mondo, ha evidenziato il forte desiderio dei frati di impegnare seriamente il mondo d’oggi con le ricche risorse contenute nella nostra eredità. C'erano cappuccini provenienti dall’Inghilterra, dall’Irlanda, dagli Stati Uniti e dall’Australia. I frati cappuccini Ed Foley, John Celichowski, sono venuti dalla provincia di St. Joseph negli Stati Uniti per consegnare le loro riflessioni, mentre fra Thomas Piolata e Benjamin Johnson sono venuti dal nostro Collegio Internazionale di Roma per tenere le loro conferenze.

Tra I partecipanti era chiaramente presente lo spirito di Francesco e la sua eredità spirituale lasciata alla Chiesa.

L'importanza attuale di impegnarsi ulteriormente in questa tradizione spirituale e teologica è stata evidenziata in particolare dal desiderio della Durham University, con la sua grande tradizione accademica, di ospitare l'anniversario dell’importante evento dell'incontro di San Francesco con il Sultano.

fr. Thomas Piolata e fr. Benjamin Johnson

At the Point of No Return as Captain Kangaroo Holds Court

 Cache   

The ongoing effort to take down President Donald John Trump has entered a somewhat decisive phase now that the impeachment circus has commenced. There is no need, at least as far as I see it, to discuss the simple fact that this effort began during the administration of then President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and has been continued by the mammoth network of American intelligence communities with the assistance of the current president’s own Cabinet and sub-Cabinet appointees and numerous career bureaucrats who believe that it is their duty to “supervise” a duly elected president whose policies meet with their disdainful disapproval.

How Trump Has Enabled Those Who Have Sought and Continue to Seek His Ruin

Before discussing the coup itself, which, as Andrew McCarthy opined recently is being undertaken not necessarily to remove President Donald John Trump but to weaken him politically, something that, it would appear, might not occur given how Captain Kangaroo's coup hearings are unfolding as his self-shaped narrative of impeachable conduct unravels before his very eyes, it should be noted yet again that Trump’s lack of preparedness to be president and his ignorance of the necessity of staffing a president’s political appointees who are the nominal, sometimes very, very nominal, superiors of the career apparatchiks in the administrative state have resulted in a White House staff is that unusually at odds with itself and that leaks like a sieve even from those are supposed to be his allies and not the plants put there by the intelligence community.

Although, I have noted this in the past on several occasions, it is necessary, as I see it, to do so yet again as readers can forget what they have read, especially with all the verbiage available in cyberspace with just the press of a finger on a hyperlink. Repetition is the mother of learning.

First, Donald John Trump knew nothing about the Constitution of the United States of America before his election on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. He still knows nothing about the Constitution of the United States of America. While I am a critic of the false principles underlying the Constitution, it is nonetheless true that it is the governing charter of the Federal government. One who aspires to be the chief executive of the United States of America ought to have some familiarity with the provisions of the document that outlines the responsibilities and powers of the Federal government, including the limitations upon the exercise of those powers. 

Mind you, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and all other statists of the false opposite of the naturalist “left” had contempt for the Constitution of the United States of America because he believed it to be an “outdated” document that had to be deconstructed of its actual meaning to provide for the alleged “needs” of “the people” in a “changed” world.

In other words, the former president and commander-in-chief of the coup against the current president believed in the sort of “living constitution” that can be manipulated by Federal judges and/or ignored by presidents and congresses who have the “needs” of “the people” in mind. This is nothing other than a secular version of the late Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II’s “living tradition,” which was relabeled as the “hermeneutic of continuity” by Antipope Emeritus Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, that is nothing other than condemned Modernist precept of “dogmatic evolutionism.” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, of course, is just an open dogmatic evolutionist without any pretext.

President Donald John Trump is not a reader. He fashions himself a doer. He simply hath not the attention span to engage in the realm of ideas. He reacts to the world by pure viscera, and he may never realize that his visceral instincts, while correct on some occasions, can never be substituted for a clear-sighted understanding of First and Last Things, ignorance of which consigns any man, including the president, to becoming his own worst enemy over the time and also to becoming easy prey for those who make it appear as though they know the world better (another spoiler alert: military generals and intelligence officials) even though they, the “experts,” are equally clueless about First and Last Things.

Second, Donald John Trump was also ignorant of the actual complexity of the existence, no less the structure, of the Executive Office of the President, which is a massive behemoth consisting of 1,869 full-time employees. It was as president-elect that Trump remarked to the two-faced man who had tried to sabotage his election and was conspiring even at that time to undermine and cripple his presidency, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, that he, Trump, did not know how many people worked in the White House. Such ignorance was inexcusable and is directly responsible for much of the chaos in his presidency as the man with the gigantic combover of dyed hair was simply unprepared to staff the Executive Office of the President, which is why he “outsourced” much of the personnel selection process of the nogoodniks in the Republican National Committee who cared only about giving their friends cushy jobs and to try to “limit the damage,” as they continue to see it, that could be done if Trump actually did carry through with his threat to “drain the swamp.”

Third, Donald John Trump, as has been noted on this site several times before, was equally unprepared to name individuals to fill sub-Cabinet positions in the fifteen Cabinet departments of the Federal government. This is how he got saddled with holdovers from the Obama/Soetoro administration, including the nefarious Sally Yates, who served as Acting Attorney General of the United States of America while a New Yorker who is tougher than Trump, Charles H. Schumer, the Minority Leader of the United States Senate, slow-walked the nomination of United States Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions (R-Alabama) to serve as the Attorney General of the United States of America. Obviously, it should go without saying that Trump’s selection of Sessions was mistaken in the first place.

Fourth, Donald John Trump made a huge mistake by retaining the petty statist and vicious narcissist named James Brien Comey as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.).  Comey should have been fired. Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe, should have been fired. Even without all of the evidence that has been revealed in the past three years now concerning the corruption within the highest reaches of the F.B.I., the United States Department of Justice (D.O.J.), the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.), the National Security Agency (N.S.A.) and the United States Department of State, Comey and McCabe should never have been retained.

Fifth, Donald John Trump made a “yuge” mistake, as they say in New York, by thinking that he could schmooze the retained Comey, whose new book confirms that he had contempt for Trump before his election and distrusted him after his inauguration. Trump has far, far too much confidence in his ability to win people over to his side, and it was when he saw that he could not “play” Comey, who has always been every bit the self-seeker, he chose a most inopportune to fire Comey, which played into the latter’s hand perfectly.  Comey wanted a “special counsel” appointed to investigate the nonexistent “collusion” of the Trump campaign with Russia, and he got exactly the man he wanted, deep state’s own Robert Mueller (see an editorial in The Boston Herald on Mueller’s prosecutorial misconduct in his current role as leader of another American coup, Investigators Reveal Bias Against Trump) and Real Clear Politics’ Carl Cannon’s Special Prosecutorial Abuse, when another ill-chosen appointee, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein, chose his former boss at the United States Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section of the Criminal Division to conduct what has turned out to be an investigation whose scope is ever-widening. 

These were completely unforced errors. However, Donald John Trump is the epitome of the “carnal man,” which refers not only his notorious behavior as a serial adulterer in each of his three “marriages” but, much, much more importantly, his absolute obsession with himself and how he is viewed by others. There are more important things for a president to do than to be on something called “twitter” all day long as he responds to what the idiots in the chattering class are saying about it.

Trump also has caused numerous problems for himself by surrounding him with lowlifes such as the late Roy Cohn, the sodomite who mentored him never to admit that he had made mistakes and to attack others without any mercy or distinctions, the weaselly coward and financially crooked Michael Cohen and, of course, the amoral pro-abort named Roger Stone, the thrice married, thrice divorced serial adulterer named Rudolph William Giuliani, who became a pro-abort thirty years ago in order to receive the cross endorsement of the New York State Liberal Party (an endorsement that came with a twenty-five thousand dollar donation), who had absolutely no business being sent on any kind of investigation in Ukraine. There is an investigation to be undertaken in Ukraine, which is the ground zero of the deep state’s effort to thwart Trump's election and to cripple his presidency, but that is the purview of United States Attorney General William Barr and United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham, not of Rudolph William Giuliani. Trump's trust in Giuliani is similar to the trust that Madame Defarge (also known as Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton) placed in Sidney Blumenthal to run rogue "intelligence" operations for her whilst she was the United States Secretary of State from January 21, 2009, to February 1, 2013.

Similarly, despite the parade of the cast of characters that walked in and out of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, President-elect Trump did not acquit himself well when he selected such men as James Mattis, Rex Tillerson and Jefferson Beauregard Sessions to serve in his Cabinet, and the selection of Reince Priebus to be his first White House Chief of Staff was disastrous. Also, the presence of his Kabbalist son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in the White House was ill-advised, to say the very least.

President Trump was also hamstrung by selected such warmongers as Herbert Raymond “Daddy Warlocks” McMaster and John Bolton, of all people, to serve as his National Security Advisers after his original selectee, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, for whom Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro had an intense personal animus, was kneecapped as follows by the combined statist likes of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Brien Comey, Deputy Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Andrew McCabe and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Peter Strzok:

Oddity No. 1: Then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe personally contacted Flynn on the second full working day of the Trump administration and asked him to meet with FBI agents, a meeting that McCabe reportedly characterized as no big deal. That should have been Flynn’s first red flag. The FBI doesn’t do “no big deal” interviews.  

McCabe’s request apparently came at the direction of his boss, former FBI Director James Comey, whose now-transparent camera lust led to the nugget last week that he wanted to exploit his perceived — and likely biased — view that the Trump administration would not be sophisticated enough to spot an end run around normal protocols and White House legal counsel.  

Was there anything legally wrong with Comey’s and McCabe’s duplicitous efforts to lull Flynn into a false sense of security, gain direct, solo access to him and not warn him about lying to agents? Nope. And that’s why his attorney’s probe of that angle went nowhere with the court.

But “legal” doesn’t mean it was proper. McCabe dispatched Peter Strzok and another agent to do the interview. Pause a moment: Comey, McCabe, Strzok. All three subsequently were fired for cause. Comey’s and Strzok’s strong anti-Trump biases, and McCabe’s conflicted links to the Clinton campaign, are well documented. It is fair to question their motivations for seeking out Flynn the way they did. Their actions were unprecedented for senior-most leadership of the FBI … yes, odd.   

And so Flynn, who now faces criminal sentencing for lying to FBI agents, was contacted by McCabe, who not only lied to FBI agents but did so, unlike Flynn, while under oath. McCabe remains uncharged. Words such as “odd” and “ironic” fail. (Three Oddities in in FBI Handling of Michael Flynn interview.)

For present purposes of this commentary, you see, James Brien Comey’s Machiavellian calculation about the unsophisticated nature of the chaotic Trump White House on the second day of its operation proved to be quite successful as it set the stage to cripple President Donald John Trump’s presidency by taking out his National Security Adviser. Moreover, Flynn, who had no reason to lie to FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, about the meeting that he had on December 22, 2016, with Russian Ambassador to the United Nations to ask him to cast a veto on a United Nations resolution condemning the Zionist State of Israel for its continued building of Israeli settlements on the West Bank, found himself under questioning for doing what Jared Kushner wanted done: to protect his beloved State of Israel.  (Flynn-Kislyak Conversation on Israel.)

In other words, it was the desire to help the Zionists that was used by the DeepStateniks to go after Flynn and thus to use their own strategies to capitalize on Trump’s unpreparedness to govern and the misplaced trust that he put in James Brien Comey.

Similar unforced errors on the part of Donald John Trump continues to this day, including that unfortunate “tweet” of his on Friday, November 14, 2019, the Feast of Saint Josaphat as the witness he  sought to undermine, former American Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch

The Bick Stops Squarely At Obama/Soetoro’s Oval Office

The observations above are not meant in any way to detract from the simple truth that the effort to prevent Donald John Trump from being elected and then, failing that, to undermine his presidency with all manner of false accusations that are then dutifully reported as “real news” by the administrative/deep state’s operatives and stooges within the mainslime media began right in the Oval Office with the imperious Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, who said of himself in 2008 that:

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for.

(APPLAUSE)

We are the change that we seek. We are the hope of those boys who have so little, who've been told that they cannot have what they dreamed, that they cannot be what they imagine.

Yes, they can. We are the hope of the father who goes to work before dawn and lies awake with doubt that tells him he cannot give his children the same opportunities that someone gave him.

Yes, he can.

We are the hope of the woman who hears that her city will not be rebuilt, that she cannot somehow claim the life that was swept away in a terrible storm.

Yes, she can.

We are the hope of the future, the answer to the cynics who tell us our house must stand divided, that we cannot come together, that we cannot remake this world as it should be. (Raw Data: Text of Barack Obama's Super Tuesday Speech.) 

Mind you, the now former President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro still believes his own narcissistic rhetoric. He really does believe that he was the “one” we had been waiting for and that not no one was qualified to replace if he did not approve of his successor and was assured that he (or she, another “chosen one,” Madame Defarge) would continue his policies without any qualification. This is what the former self-anointed secular savior of the United States of America said Thursday, November 3, 2016, in an anti-Trump campaign speech in Raleigh, North Carolina:

I’ve got Republican friends who don't think or act the way Donald Trump does.  This is somebody who is uniquely unqualified.  I ran against John McCain.  I ran against Mitt Romney.  I thought I’d be a better President, but I never thought that the Republic was at risk if they were elected.  And guess what, North Carolina -- the good news is, all of you are uniquely qualified to make sure this guy who is uniquely unqualified does not become President.  You just got to vote.  You just got to vote.  (Applause.)  And the nice thing is, you don’t just have to vote against that guy because you’ve got a candidate who is actually worthy of your vote -- who is smart, and who is steady, and who is tested, is probably the most qualified person ever to run for this office, and that is the next President of the United States, Hillary Clinton.  (Applause.)  (Obama/Soetoro Speech, November 2, 2016.)

Whether not United States Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, whose report on how the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department’s mishandling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal permitted the malefactors to escape unpunished and criticized in the mildest manner possible, or the United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, John Durham, ever state categorically that Obama/Soetoro was (and continues to be) the mastermind of the ongoing coup, it is no more believable that the nefarious duo of James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence from August 9, 2010, to January 20, 2017 and John Brennan, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from March 8, 2013, to January 20, 2017, were acting as “roque agents” in the intelligence community than it was to believe that Lois Lerner was acting on her own when she headed the Exempt Organizations section of the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to thwart the application of “conservative” organizations or that “rogue agents” in the IRS’s Cincinnati, Ohio, office were to blame. It is also implausible that the Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Andrew McCabe’s infamous “insurance policy” against then-candidate Donald John Trump that was heralded in “tweets” by FBI Special Agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page was taken out without some level of White House approval, if not directly from Obama/Soetoro himself. No, no matter what the Horowitz report or Durham findings may state publicly, it is really inarguable that the impetus for the ongoing coup against Donald John Trump was not the brainchild of Barack Hussein “play by the book” Obama/Barry Soetoro.

The former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John “I voted Communist Gus Hall, a stooge of the Communist Part of the Soviet Union, for president” Brennan was not acting on his own when he pushed the self-important, above-it-all, self-appointed philosopher king and gatekeeper, James Brien Comey, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation into establishing a false narrative that Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Pappadapoulous were working in behalf of the government or Russian President Vladimir I. Putin. John Brennan worked for and at the direction of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, and though the proof may never be established directly, there is no doubt that the man who whose own “qualifications” for being president consistent of having served in the Illinois State Senate and for two years in the United States Senate before announcing his campaign for the 2008 Democratic Party presidential nomination, which he won narrowly over the carpetbagging expert in cattle futures named Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, remains the mastermind behind the effort to prevent Trump’s election and then to thwart his presidency at every step of the way.

Indeed, Brennan’s role is at the center of United States Attorney John Durham’s investigation:

In the waning days of the Obama administration, the U.S. intelligence community produced a report saying Russian President Vladimir Putin had tried to swing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

The January 2017 report, called an Intelligence Community Assessment, followed months of leaks to the media that had falsely suggested illicit ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin while also revealing that such contacts were the subject of a federal investigation. Its release cast a pall of suspicion over Trump just days before he took office, setting the tone for the unfounded allegations of conspiracy and treason that have engulfed his first term.

The ICA's blockbuster finding was presented to the public as the consensus view of the nation's intelligence community. As events have unfolded, however, it now seems apparent that the report was largely the work of one agency, the CIA, and overseen by one man, then-Director John Brennan, who closely directed its drafting and publication with a small group of hand-picked analysts.

Nearly three years later, as the public awaits answers from two Justice Department inquiries into the Trump-Russia probe’s origins, and as impeachment hearings catalyzed by a Brennan-hired anti-Trump CIA analyst unfold in Congress, it is clear that Brennan’s role in propagating the collusion narrative went far beyond his work on the ICA. A close review of facts that have slowly come to light reveals that he was a central architect and promoter of the conspiracy theory from its inception. The record shows that:

  • Contrary to a general impression that the FBI launched the Trump-Russia conspiracy probe, Brennan pushed it to the bureau – breaking with CIA tradition by intruding into domestic politics: the 2016 presidential election. He also supplied suggestive but ultimately false information to counterintelligence investigators and other U.S. officials.
  • Leveraging his close proximity to President Obama, Brennan sounded the alarm about alleged Russian interference to the White House, and was tasked with managing the U.S. intelligence community's response.
  • While some FBI officials expressed skepticism about the Trump/Russia narrative as they hunted down investigative leads, Brennan stood out for insisting on its veracity.
  • To substantiate his claims, Brennan relied on a Kremlin informant who was later found to be a mid-level official with limited access to Putin’s inner circle.
  • Circumventing normal protocol for congressional briefings, Brennan supplied then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid with incendiary Trump-Russia innuendo that Reid amplified in a pair of public letters late in the election campaign.
  • After Trump's unexpected victory, Brennan oversaw the hasty production of the tenuous Intelligence Community Assessment.
  • Departing from his predecessors’ usual practice of staying above the political fray after leaving office, Brennan has worked as a prominent analyst for MSNBC, where he has used his authority as a former guardian of the nation’s top secrets to launch vitriolic attacks on a sitting president, accusing Trump of "treasonous" conduct.

Now Brennan is among the most vocal critics of the more comprehensive of the two Justice probes, the criminal investigation run by U.S. Attorney John Durham and Attorney General William Barr. "I don’t understand the predication of this worldwide effort to try to uncover dirt, real or imagined, that would discredit that investigation in 2016 into Russian interference," he recently said on MSNBC.

The Trump-Russia collusion theory was not propagated by a few rogue figures. Key Obama administration and intelligence officials laundered it through national security reporters who gave their explosive claims anonymous cover. Nevertheless, Brennan stands apart for the outsized role he played in generating and spreading the false narrative. (Brennan Was the Prime Mover of Russiagate.)

This is not all, however, as it was John “Get Out the Vote for Gus Hall” Brennan made sure that the alleged White House hearsay “whistleblower,” Eric Ciaramella, who is a protégé of one Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. (see Alleged Whisteblower Erich Ciaramella Was Biden Guest at State Department Banquet), got to be his—and the administrative state’s—eyes  and ears at the nerve center of the Trump White House (see the very informative video: John Brennan Handpick Ciaramella for White House). Eric Ciaramella also accompanied the aforementioned Biden to Ukraine when the latter attempted to strongarm Ukrainian leaders into firing the prosecutor who was investigation why the Burisma company, which was co-owned by the inexperienced one-time drug addict named Hunter Biden, had received a contract from the Ukrainian government:

SEN. RAND PAUL: I think [alleged Ukraine whistleblower] Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony... he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there and Hunter Biden was working for Ukrainian oligarchs. Simply for that, I think he is a material witness and needs to be brought in, the other question is, while the whistleblower is protected from being fired or from retaliation in court proceedings, the whistleblower is not protected from being asked who gave him the information, because we can't have a country where the private contents of the president's phone calls are leaked to people who are not supposed to be in that loop.

I think all these questions have to be asked. I don't think the whistleblower statute was never intended to have criminal trials and people put before the penalty of criminal justice without being able to hear from their accusers. So I think ultimately, he should testify. Adam Schiff is going to prevent it in the House. In the Senate, I will be advocating that if it comes to the Senate, we haven't had a vote yet of what the rules should be. By a simple minority, we should make the rules that the president is allowed to call all his witnesses, and then it is up to the president who he wants to call as his witnesses. (Rand Paul Says Ukraine "Whistleblower" is a Material Fact Witness and Must Testify.)

Ciaramella, it would appear, played a key role in the Obama/Biden White House of trying to “neutralize” Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, meaning that the so-called “whistleblower” (whose very appellation as such is inaccurate as the president of the United States of America is not subject to the jurisdiction and oversight of the intelligence community), meaning that the thirty year-old former “student activist” from Yale is no “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”:

More information is coming to light regarding CIA analyst and alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella. A new report from Judicial Watch revealed Obama-era visitor logs from the White House, which showed Ciaramella’s contacts during his tenure in D.C.

In their recent analysis of the visitor logs, the nonprofit examined his ties to Alexandra Chalupa, a contractor hired by the DNC during the 2016 election. She reportedly coordinated with Ukraine to investigate President Trump and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort. The logs showed Chalupa visited the White House 27 times and that her point of contact was Ciaramella. Judicial Watch released a detailed list of several other questionable figures who visited the presidential mansion.

Daria Kaleniuk is the co-founder of the Soros-funded Anti-corruption Action Centre (ANTAC) in Ukraine and visited the White House on December 9, 2015.

Former adviser Rachel Goldbrenner visited on both January 15 and August 8, 2016. During the time of her visit, Goldbrenner served as an adviser to former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, who was behind the unmasking of Mike Flynn.

Former European Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland also met with Ciaramella and reportedly was involved in the Clinton-funded dossier. She visited on June 17, 2016. Judicial Watch has released documents revealing that Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s “urgent” gathering of classified Russia investigation information, which was disseminated to members of Congress within hours of then-candidate Trump taking office.

ANTAC Director Artem Sytnyk visited on January 19, 2016. He is tied to the release of documents during the 2016 campaign that were detrimental to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. Sytnyk was convicted in Ukraine — along with Serhiy Leshenkco — for releasing official documents about Manafort to interfere with the 2016 election.

Judicial Watch is calling on Congress to question Ciaramella about these meetings. (Judicial Watch Unearths Visitor Logs from Eric Ciaramella's Time at the White House.)

Even the Obama White House knew that Hunter Biden’s connections to Burisma were problematic, but the don from Chicago by way of Hawaii wanted to protect his vice president, which is why Ciaramella became a “whistleblower” in the first place:

Of all the supposedly shocking revelations that have emerged from the impeachment hearings this week, here’s one that the Democrats in Congress hope you don’t hear about: The Obama White House knew that Hunter Biden’s extremely lucrative appointment to the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, which occurred the month after his father was named the administration’s “point person” on Ukraine, reeked of corruption — and they didn’t do anything about it.

In Congressional testimony Friday, former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch confirmed for Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), that in 2016 the Obama State Department privately ran her through a series of practice questions and answers to prepare Yovanovitch for her Senate confirmation hearing.

Stefanik confirmed that one specific question Yovanovitch was asked to prepare for was, “What can you tell us about Hunter Biden’s being named to the board of Burisma?” Incredibly, Yovanovitch later testified that the State Department told her to deflect any questions she might get about Hunter Biden and Burisma by referring Senators’ questions to the vice president’s office.

This admission regarding her senate confirmation prep session was startling, and it flatly contradicted a prior statement Yovanovitch had made in the hearing: “Although I have met former vice president several times over the course of our many years in government service, neither he nor the previous administration ever raised the issue of either Burisma or Hunter Biden with me.” (Obama Administration Knew Hunter Biden was Shady, Witness Admits.)

When all is said and done, despite Obam/Soetoro’s fear that a President Donald John Trump would overturn ObamaDeathCare, end the globalist policy of “open borders” and reorient American foreign policy according to this country’s legitimate security interests, it is my belief that the principal reason that the former president was so intent on preventing Donald John Trump’s election and then thwarting his presidency thereafter was the latter’s prominent public role in raising questions about the forty-fourth president’s country of birth. Without discounting the fact that the fascistic Obama/Soetoro and the rest of his Jacobin/Bolsehvik adherents of the farthest reaches of the false opposite of the naturalist left do not believe that anyone other than they are qualified or even have the right to hold public office, it is my belief that the Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s visceral hatred for Trump originated with the “birther controversy.” Although Donald John Trump has a pretty thin-skin when it comes to criticism, he is a completely rank amateur in the thin-skinned department in comparison to the prima donna Obama/Soetoro, who was ever ready to use the “race card” to stifle opposition, a ploy that worked more times than not.

There is no need to address the specifics of the ongoing coup’s end game, impeachment, being led at present by the shameless congenital liar named United States Representative Adam Schiff (D-People’s Republic of California) except to note that the administrative/deep state operatives who have been hard at work for well over three years now in multiple Federal agencies and departments believe that they, not elected officials, set the policy agenda for the government of the United States of America and that anyone who dissents from that agenda must be disobeyed and then accused of betraying what they think are the “best interests of the nation.” It is beyond question now that the career bureaucrats, including those in the intelligence communities, and the foreign service, several of whose self-righteous, preening and posturing creatures have been in the public spotlight this past week, believe that elected officials are so much window-dressing that gives them cover to govern as they “know” is best for us unwashed masses.

Journalist Sharyl Atkisson made this observation in a different manner:

Under the U.S. Constitution, it is the president of the United States who determines foreign policy. How can President Trump be “at odds with foreign policy” when he’s the one who determines it?

President Trump may well have been altering foreign policy on Ukraine. It should be of no surprise that he wasn’t operating “business as usual,” since he ran on that platform and has executed it from day one. It’s clear that Kent and Taylor didn’t like or agree with Trump’s ideas, and believe they know what’s best. Trump rankled, contradicted and “embarrassed” them by operating outside the “regular” chain.

But they seem to miss the fact that their desires are subordinate to the president’s. “Official foreign policy,” as they called it, is not an independent unmovable-force object that exists outside the president’s authority; it is what the president determines it to be. The diplomats must execute the president’s wishes or resign from their posts if they feel they cannot bring themselves to do so.

Kent and Taylor genuinely seem to believe Trump was acting for his own political benefit — though they acknowledged they never had spoken to him or met him. Obviously, President Trump would say he was acting in the national interest. But their testimony makes it pretty clear why President Trump would develop a communications chain that would attempt to minimize career diplomats who do not wish to execute his wishes and may be working to undermine them.

Trump’s enemies may cheer on the idea of diplomats and other officials choosing to oppose or undermine his wishes. But based on our Constitution, the dissenting diplomats are the ones who are at odds with “official foreign policy”— not the other way around. To the extent they are attempting to further policies that oppose or undermine the president’s wishes, they are the ones conducting the “shadow campaign.” (The President, Not Diplomats, Sets 'Official Foreign Policy'. See also What impeachment is really all about.)

Even though President Donald John Trump was ill-advised mention in his July 25, 2019, phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, regardless of any nonexistent threat to withhold American military assistance even if that assistance was delayed for a time, something several of the unusually taciturn Vice Preisdent Michael Richard Pence’s aides were concerned might cause a political problem, the previous administration, that under Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., constantly threatened predominantly Catholic and/or Mohammedan nations to change their laws that defended the inviolability of the preborn child and criminalized sodomite behavior:

Last month, the eyes of the world were on Africa as President Obama welcomed Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari to the White House and, for the first time as president, visited his father's home country of Kenya.
 
Reports indicate that Buhari and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram, as well as possible political and economic reforms for Buhari's struggling country. Similar discussions took place in Kenya.
 
While all seemed well on the public front, the reality is that both Buhari's and Obama's visits were used by the White House to promote what Pope Francis called "ideological colonization." This agenda was let slip just days before Buhari arrived in Washington, when the U.S. State Department indicated it would push the Nigerian government to redefine marriage.

According to the Nigerian Pilot, America's Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told reporters that "[a]s a policy, we will continue to press the government of Nigeria, as well as other governments which have provided legislation that discriminates against the LGBT community."

Thomas-Greenfield defended the pressure, saying it was not international interference in Nigeria's domestic affairs, but rather is "very much a work in progress...I think you will agree with me that the law in Nigeria really went far in discriminating against this community but also people who associate with them. So, we will continue to press the government, to press the legislature to change these laws and provide human rights for all Nigerian people regardless of their sexual orientation."
 
Across Africa, millions of people face starvation, war, oppression, poverty, and death due to a lack of basic aid. For decades, the United States has provided myriad forms of aid designed to help nations surpass these problems.
 
Under the Obama administration, however, humanitarian aid has often come with a price tag: Abandoning traditional values, especially those related to contraception, abortion, and marriage.
 
In 2011, Obama issued a memorandum that directed all U.S. embassies worldwide to promote LGBT rights, which he said were "central to the United States commitment to promoting human rights."
 
"Under my Administration, agencies engaged abroad have already begun taking action to promote the fundamental human rights of LGBT persons everywhere," he said.
 
That same year, the administration made aid to Nigeria dependent upon its not enacting the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act. And before she stepped down as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton compared same-sex relationships to race and sex in a speech that left African leaders furious.
 
Last year, at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden both suggested that Africa's war-torn, impoverished nations could attract economic and development aid from the West by becoming more gay-friendly.
 
This is social engineering at its finest, but it is not limited to redefining marriage. Contraception and abortion policies -- euphemized as "family planning" -- are also pushed upon Nigeria, whose citizens have rejected these mandates, which they consider harmful anti-women policies.
 
Again, this "ideological colonization" is not limited to Nigeria. During his visit to Kenya, Obama publicly lectured president Uhuru Kenyatta on his nation's laws against same-sex sexual relationships. According to CNN, sexual relationships between males over 14 is illegal, and punishable by as many as 14 years in prison.
 
This is the same administration that has spent substantial political capital on a deal with Iran that includes scant reforms in that dictatorial, terrorist-supporting nation, and opened relations with Cuba despite requiring few, if any, political reforms from the Castro dictatorship.
 
African leaders have long opposed Obama's 21st-century imperialism, especially religious leaders. In October, Ignatius Kaigama, the Archbishop of Jos in Nigeria - whose diocese is in the heart of the area affected by terrorist organization Boko Haram - and Bishop Joseph Osei-Bonsu of Ghana told me that they were tired of international pressure to legalize gay marriage.
 
The Nigerian prelate explained, "Marriage is between a man and a woman... even outside of scriptural support, our culture tells us that, nature tells us that."
 
And despite threats of denial of much-needed aid, he says, Africans will not capitulate to the demands. "These are our cultures, and we're not going to compromise over them."
 
Former Population Research Institute Media and Research Coordinator Anne Morse, who is beginning a doctoral program on population studies, was recently in Kenya. An observation she made on Facebook is instructive:
 
"Dear President Obama," wrote Morse, "[please] justify why--for every dollar USAID spends on water and sanitation in Kenya--it spends TWELVE dollars on family planning." Morse noted that she "[had] seen 4 advertisements for condoms today, but hasn't had a hot shower since Sunday."
 
The worst example of America's new-age imperialism is found in the growing evidence that President Obama purposely withheld aid to fight the terrorist group Boko Haram. While Buhari's predecessor has been accused of refusing U.S. aid to fight Boko Haram, what has been less reported is that the refusal came in part because the United States demanded Nigeria change its laws on marriage.
 
These accusations aren't just coming from Catholic bishops. A former U.S. Congressman, a Pentagon Army spokespersona Nigerian official, and the Nigerian Ambassador to the United States have all confirmed this is the case. To quote Ambassador Adebowale Adefuye in his statement to the Council on Foreign Relations, "the U.S. government has up till today refused to grant Nigeria's request to purchase lethal equipment that would have brought down the terrorists within a short time."
 
Nigerian-American Winnie Obike, a Ph.D. candidate in political communications at the University of Maryland, told me that she is "appalled by the Obama administration's foreign policy objectives for the African continent."
 
"It is ironic that a president who has passionately apologized for America's 19th and 20th century imperialism has adopted a twenty-first century imperialism toward Africa by forcing nations to change their beliefs on marriage, abortion and contraception in exchange for basic humanitarian aid," said Obike, who was the Minority Outreach Coordinator for the Minnesota for Marriage Campaign.
 
"Nigeria and other African nations need humanitarian aid and help fighting terrorist groups like Boko Haram, not the West's declining values," said Obike. "I urge President Buhari not to compromise traditional values in exchange for foreign aid."
  
In 2009, President Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize because many hoped he would lead the world to greater peace and security. With less than 18 months left in his time in office, he can finally earn the award by setting aside his own ideology and focusing on the real aid needed by Nigerians, Kenyans, and many other Africans. (Obama's Twenty-first Century Imperialism on Display in Africa.)

How was this not impeachable and Trump’s putative threat to withhold military assistance to Ukraine that was granted after a delay of five weeks considered impeachable?

Well, there is intimidation and then, I suppose, there is intimidation.

A complete farce.

Moreover, what business does the government of the United States of American even have in Ukraine that justifies the sending of American military equipment and technology?

It is not an accident that many of the self-important military figures have testified before United States Representative Adam “Captain Kangaroo” Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee as these war hawks believe in endless war, and it does not matter to them that civilian control of the military is vested by Article II in the President of the United States of America. It is the president, not military officers nor career foreign service officers who establish American military and foreign policy.

President Dwight David Eisenhower was a globalist in his own right who had the blood of countless numbers of Catholics from Eastern Europe who were forcibly “repatriated” to the countries, then under the yoke of Soviet domination, were executed as “traitors” once they had been returned (“Operation Keelhaul”). Nevertheless, though, Eisenhower, a graduate of the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, and a career military office, understood the dangers posed by the military-industrial complex, some of whose contemporary products deem it to be an act of “commitment to the truth” to cooperate in the takedown of their Commander-in Chief, which he expressed as follows in his Farewell Address to the Nation on January 17, 1961:

Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small,there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties. A huge increase in newer elements of our defense; development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture; a dramatic expansion in basic and applied research-these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising in itself, may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel.

But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs-balance between the private and the public economy, balance between cost and hoped for advantage-balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable; balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual; balance between action of the moment and the national welfare of the future. Good judgment seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration.

The record of many decades stands as proof that our people and their government have, in the main, understood these truths and have responded to them well, in the face of stress and threat. But threats, new in kind or degree, constantly arise. I mention two only.

A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction.

Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peace time, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

Until the la
