Let's Comment on Everything:  April 2023

Let's comment on everything possible.  Even the outrageous.  How about that  incredibly brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine?  At times,  even to  the average reader,  practiced, studious observer or analyst,  it must seem  the world has now gone mad.  Civilization on the cusp of total  destruction. Three seconds to midnight, the total annihilation of humanity.   Shall we comment on everything in reach just to be safe? Three seconds to go.  Or is it only two?  Why not?


"A declaration of war is the ultimate admission of  human failure to reason and logic"

International news is sad. Illogical.  Angry, terrifying, and specifically, endless.  Just as there is no time limit on politics, there is no limit to resources spent upon warfare. There is no explanation of war, and upon occasion,  no justification. "A declaration of war is the ultimate admission of  human failure to reason and logic" comes to mind.  That being said and worth remembering, Our response can only be commentary.  Hopeful commentary.  Our  best bet is hope. Please do feel free to comment  if you are so inclined. It is our fondest wish  here at  that faith, reason and logic continue to inspire thought, reason, and other wonderful things.    

Russian Invasion of Ukraine

The Russian 'special military operation'  invasion,  a blatant lie and an  uncalled-for, illegal  attack on Ukraine  sovereign territory  Feb 24/22 has now been blazing viciously for over a year.  Nothing but an ill-devised territorial land and resources grab— a repeat of, and similar to the Russian "annexation" of Crimea in 2014 and the 1939  Winter War with Finland. ( That resulted in a loss of about 10% of valuable Finnish territory, just for the record.  Never again.  (Finland to join NATO. )

Unbelievable Casualties.

Russian casualties are now considered to be  hundreds of thousands, but the true human cost will never be admitted by the egotistical bully Putin or the Kremlin. Russian destruction of Ukrainian civilian infrastructure, power, water, apartment buildings, private homes — has left many Ukrainian casualties,  Ukrainian elders, families, children, babies— homeless, helpless, and freezing in the dark. In basements or rudimentary shelters.  Or evacuated, migrated, possibly to never return. Thousands of Ukrainian troops  have been killed, thousands of  civilians including children are considered to be "collateral damage" by the invading Russians.

A Foolish Miscalculation

A very foolish and vicious  miscalculation by Vladimir Putin  has backfired. The bitter war has taken too long.  the war is ongoing over a year later and has just resulted in Ukrainians being tougher and more determined than ever. To live long enough to eject all Russian troops entirely from ALL Ukrainian territory.  From the  newly seized and illegally 'annexed (2022)  Ukraine territory. Russia, stubbornly, will not leave  The Crimea,  which Russia  illegally  invaded and 'annexed' in 2014, but  Ukrainian President Zelensky and Ukrainians insist that  Russia must leave ALL Ukrainian territoryNo cease-fire or negotiated peace is possible in this stalemate.  

Here at  #WeStandWithUkraine.

The slick,  delusional, stubborn and unstable  dictator Putin stubbornly insists he is 'denazifying'  Ukraine with his  delusional 'special military operation'.  Incredibly, the delusions of Putin may now have already cost more than 250,000 genuine Russian lives.  In Putin's dreams, Ukrainian citizens  and ethnic Russians alike are "worthless peasant lives' Putin considers absolutely disposable. We disagree.  All lives are valuable.  Here at we stand with Ukraine for the principles of democracy and integrity of sovereign territory.  

An Arrest Warrant for Vladimir Putin the War Criminal.

Putin's disgraceful 'special military operation'   includes the use of deadly  force provided by brutal, murderous Wagner mercenaries . Mercenaries who have brazenly committed hundreds of war crimes, including torture,  summary execution,  the  rape of prisoners,   men, women and children alike. Also the theft or kidnapping of children.  The International Criminal Court  has issued a warrant for  the arrest of Vladimir Putin for overseeing  the illegal deportation of thousands of  children from Ukraine to Russia. How about the early and murderous occupation of Bucha that cost the lives of 500+ Ukrainian civilian lives?  How about the vicious targeting and bombing of civilian apartment buildings, villages, and homes?  What about Russian missiles targeting Ukrainian  power infrastructure, water, heat and electricity— required by civilians  to survive during the winter? Rocket attacks  and bombing of civilians  are Crimes against Humanity.   *In our point of view, recruitment of prisoners  by the state or mercenary armies should be a banned, illegal practice globally.    Russian prisoners,  whether they be pickpockets, common thieves, rapists, murderers or corrupt politicians have bartered the balance of their " sentences" pending 'freedom' to fight as Wagner mercenaries on the Ukraine front lines.  

Freedom:  "If they  Complete Their 'Term''. 

IF they survive Wagner's brutality, and backup execution by their own troops if fleeing, surrendering, or retreating.  Forced into battle with Ukraine.   Which, by any standard, is  far better armed, better trained, better supported,  and better planned .  Deserters are arbitrarily executed,  shot in the back if retreating, with no surrender allowed. *In our point of view, forced recruitment of prisoners should be illegal. Reportedly,  300,000  civilians  and perhaps more 'citizens'   have been arbitrarily conscripted.  Poorly, virtually -untrained, mostly ethnic minority "Russians" from the far reaches of Russia  were 'signed up'.   To donate their lives to the Motherland' with no choice.  Tossed  into Putin's badly planned, badly-trained, badly-equipped,  poorly-led Russian meat-grinder WAR of GENOCIDE against Ukraine. Hundreds of thousands of Russians cleverly  left the country, leaving in a hurry to flee — to Finland, Poland, Germany. Any escape to any country  that would allow them to avoid conscription in PUTIN'S WAR.   Yes,  it is a WAR by any standard,  and it is  PUTIN'S WAR.   A GENOCIDAL ATTEMPT to wipe Ukraine and her people off of the map.  An attempt to grab all  territories and countries that were  or may have been  USSR  'states' prior to it's collapse.   Or areas  Putin considers "historically-Russian' lands". Or not.  That might be more appropriately called 'hysterically'—considered to be Russian lands— in the delusional mind of Putin.   

The Target: Lands and Resources

Ukraine is a rich source of agricultural products, steel, metals,  salt, and minerals of all kinds.   Plunder has included museum treasures, and relics, artwork,   agricultural tractors and farm machinery, livestock, washing machines, televisions, computers. and food supplies. And, by the way... thousands of children—considered suitable for kidnapping and  relocation to Russian 'families' for forced re-education. Stolen children. What does that infer?  You decide.  

Ukrainian Military Personnel are Better Trained.

Ukrainian military personnel are—decidedly better trained,  more resourceful, —and far better equipped and assisted by NATO with training, heavy weapons,  artillery of all descriptions and ammunition as well as 'intelligence'.

NATO and Western Aid

Western aid from NATO, the USA, and Europe continues to flow to Ukraine. Aid, consisting of Howitzers, armored vehicles, tanks, weapons of all kinds, ammunition, medical supplies,  etc/ are delivered, if sporadically.  Mostly from NATO countries but also from  non- members of NATO, despite Putin's dire warnings of escalation.

                      A Battle Tank, only one of many...  (Photo: 2022, CNN)

Not-so-subtle, repetitive and  ugly hints of Nuclear Retaliation.

Putin's machinations and predictable bluster including threats of  potential nuclear response or retaliation with smaller tactical nuclear weapons —occur regularly.   Even  WW III.  A nuclear Armageddon. An eventful, deadly global event, a  war no country can win.  Therefore, should the existential battle in any  tortured mind be an excuse for mutual destruction?  Let us pause there and  consider that Putin's arrogant 'special military operation' has already failed.  His obscenely  long,  arrogant, gold-trimmed palatial  table  may soon  be  more useful hacked  into short, convenient pieces of firewood. Which he may well require to stay warm in a  Siberian cave.  

Just Consider.

Just consider. Putin's 'special military operation'  is not only a failure but a painful reality of   delusions in the mind of an unnamed Kremlin madman who would be King.  At any cost.  Period. You decide.  Please comment below.

The Sun is Setting on Justin Trudeau

©2019 by Raymond Alexander Kukkee     [caption id="attachment_3981" align="aligncenter" width="600"]The inverted Maple Leaf flag of Canada --a symbol of distress Canada in Distress:   The Sun is setting on Justin Trudeau[/caption]          

The Sun is Setting on Justin Trudeau

"The sun is setting on Justin Trudeau."  You have to be impressed.   The Prime Minister of Canada has done it again.   As usual,  Justin continues to make  inexcusable blunders, gaffes,  one after the other.  Endlessly. Making excuses. Justifying actions and errors with lies,   tossing in thoughtless insults. Arrogantly offering  'alternative experiences' as 'valid' explanations  for mindless,  off-script comments, illegal actions.  Political statements laced with wildly inaccurate half-truths, taqiyya lies of convenience, deception, and poisoned delusion. On and on. Approved and supported by The "#LiberalTeamofwhat?" in action.  Get this...


Trudeau Was Caught In Scandalous NO-NO. —a.k.a.   The Very Big SNC LAVALIN "Affair".

Perhaps most damning,  it had to happen sometime. Trudeau was  clearly exposed using political pressure, his position, and sketchy influence to  prance and skate his way around the Canadian Constitution Rule of Law —on thin ice.

He was called out and rightly so —by the (then) Attorney-General of Canada —his own female Liberal MP Cabinet minister, MP Jody Wilson-Reybould. The first Indigenous Attorney-General of Canada. A woman with ethics. And a second woman. Dr. Jane Philpott.  There we go...the fake feminist Trudeau in action...


Jody Wilson-Reybould and Dr. Jane Philpott Expelled from the Liberal Party April 2nd, 2019.

Trudeau  smugly  thumbed  his nose at,  and  blamed the now ex-Attorney-General of Canada, Minister of Justice Jody Wilson-Reybould  and  MP Dr. Jane Philpott,  two of his most highly qualified ministers — for precipitating action on the  DIRT under the rug in the  Prime Ministerial Office.   More laughable, Trudeau  whined and charged  that in doing so,  they (those  evil untrustworthy women   " created distrust and caused a rift in the dishonest Liberal  "team of  What(??) " Party of Canada

Canadians now know and understand that The Prime Minister of Canada was clearly pressuring and interfering  with, and improperly  injecting himself and his staff into the EXCLUSIVE jurisdiction  of the Attorney-General of Canada — in the * SNC Lavalin scandal. 

*Bottom line explanation,  Trudeau's office was reportedly attempting to pressure  JWR  into offering SMC Lavalin a "deferred prosecution agreement" which would conveniently avoid a criminal TRIAL — including an agreement that the company simply would  pay a "slap your pinkies fine" instead and carry on with the business of being a  corporate Liberal donor in Trudeau's riding. Imagine that....

Would ordinary Canadians ever be allowed to prance naked skate around  the Rule of Law like that?  No. Do the crime, do the time, dude,   " 'Fess up.  Go to jail, do not collect $200" —Unless you're rich and one of Trudeau's "friends" in high places (Trudeau's riding) and political donors, (Liberal)  that is....

*To simplify the SNC Lavalin 'affair' Trudeau's office was caught with dirty political  fingers at the highest  level —dabbling improperly and  interfering in matters of  law into  which  politicians —even the Prime Minister of Canada himself— have absolutely no business sticking their long, lying, political noses. Period.  International bribery by Canadians is not to be condoned.  Ever.


The Big NO-NO Exposed

A big no-no.   It seems Justin, his  friendly socialist whisperer Gerald Butts, and head honcho M. Wernick, of the Privy Council, (a.k.a.  chief public servant)—in a round of phone calls and emails — had collectively   been  placing continuous, undue and illegal pressure on the (then) Attorney-General  Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Reybould  to reverse an existing decision. To force her to defer prosecution of SNC Lavalin for corruption a serious charge involving bribery to get government business in LIBYA, of all places.

How convenient.  With a Deferred Prosecution Agreement, SNC Lavalin,  a major Liberal donor in Trudeau's riding,  could then avoid a criminal TRIAL,  avoid conviction, thereby  remaining  'approved'  for very large and lucrative engineering contracts in Canada. 

Even more convenient,  and unbelievable, when the  incredibly improper "improprieties"  were exposed,  a "Justice Committee," pre-loaded with a biased Liberal majority,  was quickly formed to hide 'investigate' the matter.

The biased "committee"  heard a highly-stifled, Trudeau-approved  version of events from Wilson-Reybould,  some assorted  and Trudeau-approved selected 'testimony'  from Gerald Butts,  and "who really knows" from the head of the Privy Council  M. Wernick.  The Liberals subsequently and quickly shut down the investigation.

The opposition screamed COVERUP!  because it was a COVERUP!  (--and far  too uncomfortable  for the sweating Trudeau and  SNC Lavalin, the  large Liberal donor.  In Trudeau's riding yet. Imagine that, but I digress )  Let us not even start on the Trudeau fabricated excuses of 'protecting jobs'  yada-yada.... all b.s. which Lavalin executives  denied and, oh-oh!... then oops....promptly backtracked.  Nice job there... but since loss of jobs just does not qualify as an excuse for political interference in matters of justice, you get the idea...

It became evident that Wilson-Reybould,  clearly and calmly,   displaying integrity and  legal ethics, had  warned the PMO about the on-going problem with  political interference in matters of prosecution and the Rule of Law,  and had refused to change her decision.

A taped *conversation between Wilson-Reybould and Michael  Wernick  was subsequently  labeled  "improper" by  "Team Liberal Hypocrites " who  expressed themselves as being "uncomfortable" that JWR had "recorded a conversation."  How dastardly, they shreiked... A *conversation that in fact had clearly confirmed improprieties that Trudeau   denied. No matter.

Get this, folks, Justin lies,  denies being advised by Wernick of that accurate "*discussion".  Imagine that. (Why sure, we'll all believe that B.S.) 

JWR  had been subsequently  removed from the  position by Trudeau, and demoted to   Indian Affairs upon refusal to change her decision. Imagine that 'timely decision'. 

Trudeau lied, justifying  that demotion by blaming it as necessary because of the resignation of another MP, Scott Brison. Well, hello.  Wasn't that creative, let's blame Scott, blame someone else....always?

JWR  refused,   understandably  turning down the cheesy, dishonest,  and obviously  Trudeauesque  shifty two-step cabinet shuffle appointment, initially  to **Indigenous Affairs then to Veterans' Affairs. ( *Being an Indigenous woman ,  she is also  in disagreement with the  overbearing, highly-questionable  Indian Act of 1876, which in spite of amendments and many Liberal tears and promises of reconciliation,  handily controls and  limited all infrastructure,  the infamous residential schools, health, social aspects, education, language, and economic opportunity, defining and   dictating in its entirety  the nature of  contemporary aboriginal life in Canada ) 


The Punishment

Jody Wilson-Reybould  was CLEARLY and handily punished and demoted,  chided, scolded, denigrated  for being ETHICAL — and  later expelled from the Liberal Party by the blatantly dishonest Trudeau and  his curiously childish, uninformed, incredibly gullible, but  equally dishonest Liberal caucus.

In overview,  Justin the  FAKE sworn feminist, clearly  had absolutely NO hesitation in agitating, influencing,  conning ordering (whipping) the frightened  snowflake Liberal caucus into  tossing these two highly-qualified elected  women under the bus —and out of the Liberal Party. That is what dictators DO.

Understanding the sneaky, dishonest collection of  "Works of Trudeau" ,    Canadians can easily  conclude he conveniently conned and ordered the frightened Liberal party into once again, doing more of his dirty work.   Why?  To  avoid facing responsibility,   to protect his own sleazy agenda — and ensure his success.  The sunny,  Sunni, new,  Trudeau way.   After all it's still "2015" in his delusion. Why destroy his personal brand when he can easily lay the  blame  for the 'betrayal of trust" on the whole Liberal "team" he describes it?


The LiberalTeamOfWHAT (?)

The #LiberalTeamOfWhat? comes to mind. What exactly has this "team" become?   The  Liberal team of Dishonest, the Liberal Liars, the  Ignorant incompetent, the bleating sheep,   slaves, or  hypocritical?    Liberals should be ashamed not only of Trudeau but of  themselves.

So...Imagine that.  Where could it go from there?  Not one, but TWO competent, honest, and smart WOMEN—elected representatives, who, for the record, were, and remain  more honest,  far better informed, far smarter, far more astute than Trudeau will ever be...     Both with careers much brighter and longer than Justin should now ever hope to have.  Both are out. Both are now sitting as independents.

Officially, Jody Wilson-Reybould and Dr. Jane Philpott have  been expelled from the Liberal party as of this date. Why? Because the "team Trudeau" collectively could NOT INSIST OR ACCEPT  that  the dishonest Trudeau " made a serious  legal mistake  (yes, let's generously  call it a "mistake")  --and the Liberal Party,  individually and  collectively, most shamefully,  have absolutely  no intention of  being truthful with Canadians




Enough said  (?)  NO.

Because Trudeau  is a COWARD, dishonest,  and unable to accept responsibility for  personal actions, corruption, sleazy agenda, dereliction of duty,   government incompetence, we say no.  Because Trudeau endlessly expresses disrespect for seniors, original immigrants,  veterans, women,  Indigenous peoples, "old stock Canadians',  white people, and  his  improper  political interference in matters of law—   We say NO.

Trudeau compounded the error,  conning and whipping   frightened Liberals everywhere into calling  JWR's  taped conversation a crime, unethical.   (Justin continues to poison more sheep  to do his  dirty work.)

The justifiably-taped conversation which was intended to  advise and prevent  Trudeau from committing a crime —is now called a crime?  Dishonesty reigns...  The pot is calling the kettle black. That predictable  fabrication  and accusations of  "destruction of trust"   have been  publicized and exploited by Trudeau —to twist fact, cover his tracks, and justify his viciously kicking  two women—from the Liberal party.

The Liberals  accusing  JWR of unethical behaviour —is a travesty of justice.   How convenient, now contrived, a mere distraction  to  distract from  Justin Trudeau's dishonesty—and the ongoing agenda of the  poisoned, dishonest PMO.   Butts, the Trudeau-whisperer,   and Wernick the conniver —both resigned. Imagine why? ... yes, let us simply imagine WHY.


Liberals Continue to Choose Evil over Honesty

In observation, the Liberals have now demonstrated themselves to be  a "team" of spineless, dishonest hypocrites— which clearly approves of  political interference with  the Canadian  Rule of Law.

Liberals choose  to support corruption and the  childish, treasonous, dishonest, and 'team' including the  incredibly  incompetent 'lying leader'. Liberals continue to choose evil over honesty.

Canadians can justifiably no longer trust the 'lying leader'  OR the  Lying #LiberalTeamOfWhat?


Guess what, that wasn't ALL...

"The sun is setting on Justin Trudeau.." 

B.C. Grand Chief Stewart Phillip

Even more telling was Trudeau's visit to a Liberal fundraiser which happened to attract some protesters from Grassy Narrows, an Indian reservation where tragic mercury contamination from an old paper mill  has been known for decades.  Mercury-contaminated soil and water has been  ignored,  causing endless health issues, illness and deaths— in the native population.

While  those  protesters were being  quickly "removed" by Trudeau's security goons,   the Liberals  in attendance were —LAUGHING— as Justin repeatedly shouted  to the protesters being forcefully removed: 

"Thank you for your DONATION"

Can you imagine that?

Trudeau's crass, thoughtless comment  revealed and  demonstrated  his  fake "concern"  and  "genuine interest   in reconciliation" nicely — his lack of concern for the well-being, the very lives of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada. Human beings. Real children. Real families. Real people.

Yes. The Prime Minister of Canada addressed the disgraceful, inexcusably tragic situation facing the people of Grassy Narrows  with ignorant, arrogant comments which were accompanied by Liberal laughter.  How disconcerting.  How unbelievable. 

Yes.   Believe.  it.  or NOT.


"The sun is setting on Justin Trudeau"  was subsequently observed and politely stated by Union of B.C. Chiefs Grand Chief Stewart Phillip in an interview with Global TV correspondent Mercedes Stephenson. Chief Philip  thinks

" the prime minister is now showing his true colours on indigenous relations' and that it is "very disturbing and very disappointing."

Right.  That says it ALL.  The sun IS setting on Justin Trudeau in the rest of Canada too.  Canadians are fed up with Trudeau's dishonesty;  nothing he says OR does can be believed OR trusted. Ever.


Let's Repeat That! Words from the Prime Minister of Canada yet.  Unbelievable. 

 "Thank you for your donation". 

Wow.  Worth REPEATING.  The BC Union of Chiefs Grand Chief Stewart Phillip summed it up nicely in an interview with Mercedes Stephenson ( Global News, West Block Mar. 31/19):

 "The sun is setting on Justin Trudeau".  "The Prime Minister is now showing his true colours on indigenous is very disturbing and very disappointing."

* In observation,  we at IncomingBytes suggest that Trudeau had protesters removed from his "fund raiser" ($1500.00/ plate Lying Liberal Rubber Chicken) because  he cannot face the embarrassment, truth, lack of integrity  or the factual necessity of addressing and remediating  historical wrongs,  chronic neglect, and the incredible case of  the Grassy Narrows mercury contamination that has had  deadly, tragic consequences for decades.  It is making real human beings sick, and killing them. 

No cleanup of  Grassy Narrows mercury contamination is scheduled or expected.  Imagine that.   

—With decades-old mercury poisoning of Grassy Narrows,  outrageous poverty and timeless, unresolved  20-year boil water orders on other  indigenous communities,  it is becoming surprisingly easier  to believe that Trudeau considers  Indigenous peoples irrelevant,  less than human, disposable, and  not worth bothering with. Apparently these human beings are considered to be  unworthy of clean water and a safe environment. 

For the record,  real Canadians believe that Justin's ignorance and racist attitude to  Indigenous peoples of Canada was inexcusable, shameful,  and a disgrace. 

His  blathering  "apology" the next day was absolutely unbelievable and meaningless,  coming from the confused, forked-tongued actor. Understandably, First Nations people simply can no longer trust or believe Trudeau. Neither can other Canadians.

"The sun is setting on Justin Trudeau."

Sorry, the truth must be told.

All Canadians in Canada deserve MUCH better.

Is that a surprise?  After all, it is 2019....
