In Defense of the Free Republic



OK one for the road. We need to pause for a standing eight count and ask ourselves what the hell are we doing? Look where this insanity is taking us. Just to be clear, I'm not going to approve comments that are filed with Muslim hate any more than I would approve comments that are filled with Jewish or Catholic hate. A free republic supports the freedom of religion. Adapting a single state religion is as bad as abolishing religion all together. A free republic does neither.

The first three episodes of Star Wars was a heartwarming story about how a handful of rebels overthrew an evil empire of dictatorship. The second three episodes showed how that free republic fell and became an evil empire. George Lucas was very insightful.

Nobody likes politics. Yet politicians start and end wars. Politicians grant and remove civil liberty. Politicians destroy or protect the environment. Politicians raise or lower taxes. That is why politics is so important. Everybody hates politics because it is filled with deception and lies. We have to be able to see through the lies to preserve and protect the free republic.

It is no secret that Stephen Harper is an enemy of the Charter of Rights. Yet the President of the United States swears an oath to defend the Constitutions. Obama's abandonment of the Constitution is indeed a huge concern. One of the main purposes of my blog and web site has been to expose the fact that the Hells Angels are a criminal organization. Their main order of business is drug trafficking and the use of violence to obtain a monopoly on that market.

The second purpose of my blog is to show that the CIA is also a criminal organization. Their recent infiltration into various government agencies in Operation Fast and Furious is tied to the Hells Angels drug trafficking network just like it was tied to Freeway Ricky in LA and is a huge threat to civil liberty. That is what we need to address. Protecting civil liberty and the free republic. That is what this is all about. It relates to the fall of the Nugan Hand bank in Australia



CBC is reporting that "Hong Kong activists kicked off a long-threatened mass civil disobedience protest Sunday to challenge Beijing over restrictions on voting reforms, escalating the battle for democracy in the former British colony after police arrested dozens of student demonstrators."

"The announcement by civil leaders came after a big crowd of tens of thousands turned out around midnight Saturday to support the student protesters who stormed into a courtyard of the government complex and scuffled with police wielding pepper spray. Police arrested at least 74 people, including some in their teens."

Holy Tiananmen square. Hong Kong is very problematic because they had a democracy under British Rule. Communist China taking that away from them isn't going to go over very well. Time Magazine report on the 25th Anniversary of the Tiananmen square massacre.



So far the Hong Kong police are just using tear gas and pepper spray on protesters instead of live ammunition. The question is, why are they using tear gas and pepper spray on protesters? That is not a democratic society. “We all saw the teargas. None of us expected they would use it. It’s beyond our imagination and toleration. We Hong Kongers have to strike for the common good. The government is becoming irrational.”

  1. I recommend Akiro Kurosawa's "The Hidden Fortress", starring Toshiro Mifune. George Lucas cites it as a major influence for Star Wars.

    Pretty much any Akiro Kurosawa Samurai flick with Toshiro Mifune is awesome. "Yojimbo" (The Bodyguard) was remade both by Sergio Leone (A Fistful of Dollars with Clint Eastwood) and by Walter Hill (Last Man Standing with Bruce Willis). It's success led to another movie, "Sanjiro", also starring Mifune. And then there is of course "The Seven Samurai" also remade a few times.

    Worth noting that Mifune Toshiro was not just an actor who waved a sword around onscreen, he was a long time student of Sugino Yoshio sensei of the Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū school of kenjutsu, whom also did the fight choreography for these movies.

  2. Why are they using pepper spray, etc,? Because they can. Who is going to stop them? Wait until the Red Army comes out of its barracks. Yes they are in Hong Kong.

    Now of course what is so entertaining is we had P.M. harper running around flapping his gums about democracy in Ukraine and former eastern block countries. Democracy for Hong Kong, not so much.

    The entertaining question is: what will we do when corporations from China bring their own "security" people into Canada and start "dealing" with Canadian protestors or strikers. Remember, that trade agreement gives companies from China a lot of latitude in Canada. The other important item is many of those companies aren't like our companies. The companies from China are owned by the Red Army of China and the Government of China. Remember what they did to those people in T. Sq. 25 yrs ago. Now why would harper want to sign a 31 yr deal with them and what will they do to our country.

    You worry about the H.A. I'd worry more about Harper and China and what they've got planned for Hong Kong and Canada.

    1. I do worry about the HAs. They're both wrong. In fact they're not much different one from the other.

  3. You do have a point there. However, China and the Government of Canada are so much bigger than the HA and come with so many more vehicles and weapons, etc. I just feel if push comes to shove, the HA looks like a bunch of little boys playing with their toys.
