Revised December 20th, 2010

Unfortunately, I must close down the “COMMENT” category, due to the high number of commercial plugs being received.  It is not unusual for me to find as many as twenty such computer-generated submissions when I go on-line in the morning, often with phoney, ill-spelt solicitations expressing great admiration and promising eternal fealty.

Quite frankly, I’m sick and tired of it.  My site / blog is relatively new, and although I receive a good number of ‘hits’ and my ‘recent visitor map’ looks great, I just don’t need the hassle.  It wastes time I need for putting up posts, which is far more important.

You can still reach me at:  jeff@jeff-goodall.com

Please remember, I reserve the right to not post any comment received if it is off-topic, insulting, racist, anti-Semitic or commercially motivated.  Nor am I interested in providing a free, unlimited-use platform for persons opposed to my opinions, beliefs or principles.  If you want to spout off, pay out the $$$ and get your own blog.

Any comments received, whether published or not, may be used in subsequent articles I write, including the name used by the sender.

If you disapprove of non-white immigration, and are unhappy with Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and the military/economic espionage being carried out by Israel against the United States and others, that’s fine by me.

But, I will not tolerate foul or blasphemous language, nor will I put up with expressions of hatred against Jews and minorities.

We’re here to express a viewpoint, not to get bogged down in childish, no-win battles over language, semantics, or our manner and style of presentation.

Canada pussyfooting over flotilla assault

Monday, May 31st, 2010

With Prime Minister Stephen Harper having declared himself a friend and supporter of Israel, it should be no surprise that our government is taking a ‘wait and see’ stand on Israel’s bloody assault against the Gaza flotilla.

Although much of the world has been quick to express condemnation, and ambassadors are being summoned around the world to explain Israel’s actions, Harper’s spokesman Minitri Soudas says only that “Canada deeply regrets the loss of life and the injuries suffered…we are currently looking for more information in order to shed light on what exactly happened.”

It should be pretty damn obvious what happened; Israel committed an act of piracy in international waters.  And if, as we are increasingly being told, the activists responded with force after being boarded, then they had every right under international law to do so.

Typical Canadian pussyfooting.  Wait to see which side of the debate comes out on top, and then issue pious pronouncements guaranteed to attract only approval and praise; no guts at all.

Piracy and murder

Monday, May 31st, 2010

The Israeli Navy has attacked the flotilla of civilian vessels attempting to bring food and supplies to Gaza.  It seems that at least ten persons were killed, and dozens more wounded or injured. 

According to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, (see story here), President Obama has said through spokesman William Burton that “The United States deeply regrets the loss of life and injuries sustained, and is currently working to understand the circumstances surrounding this tragedy”.

Radiocative waste hazard in Ontario?

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Appearing in the Toronto Star on May 30th is an article by Tyler Hamilton headed “Piles of poison PCB’s remain across Ontario.”  See story here

This takes me back to 1993, when I was travelling east from Toronto with a friend.  We kept to the shore of Lake Ontario as much as possible, and somewhere along the way we came to a sign by a farm gate advertising antique cars for sale.  These turned out to be mostly from the fifties, huge “bulge-mobiles” with fins on top of the fins; a real treat to see!

As we were talking with the old farmer who owned the cars, a man well into his seventies, I mentioned an Eldorado Nuclear sign I had seen back on the road, and we found ourselves discussing the subject of radioactive waste disposal.

Yet another “refugee” outrage!

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

In the Toronto Star of May 27th, 2010, appeared an article by Tracey Tyler headed “Refugee door pried open for Haitian women fearing rape”. 

See story here.

In it, we are told that a Federal judge took into account Amnesty International and Doctors without Borders having “identified rape as a systemic problem in Haiti, one that has worsened since January’s earthquake.”  

An Adjudicator last year rejected the refugee claim of a woman with four daughters, “because violence is such a widespread problem in Haiti”. 

However, the new ruling takes into account a previous Supreme Court of Canada determination that “sexual assault is not like any other crime and targets women in the vast majority of cases.”

Beijing suspects false flag attack on South Korean corvette

Friday, May 28th, 2010

The following article from “Online Journal” is speculative but interesting, in that it provides insights rarely to be found in the main-stream media.  The reference to Israel is significant to my mind, as North Korea is regarded by them as a source of nuclear materials and know-how to Syria and Iran.  JG.

The Miracle of Dunkirk

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Today is the 70th anniversary of the “Miracle of Dunkirk”.  Almost 340,000 troops were rescued between May 27th and June 4th, 1940.

One of them was my father.  According to him, he was directed to a small vessel, rather than to the Lancastria, a liner which was sunk with the loss of more than 3,000 lives when a Stuka dropped a bomb down a funnel, blowing the bottom out of the ship.

Had he been sent that way, he would likely have died, and my sister and I wouldn’t be here.

I really don’t know else what to say about this.

Moral monopoly no more

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

This article explains how the White majority lost its moral authority as a result of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and how initiatives such as Arizona’s immigration law may commence the process of regaining it. 

Read article here.

“Moral authority is what legitimizes the exercise of power in society. Some have it and some don’t. Those who have it have rights. Those who don’t can be pushed around.”
