The Financial Gutting of Canada: Upping the Ante

The degree of foreign investment in Canada, i.e. U.S. ownership, cultural imperialism, the NAFTA predecessor towards North American Union, the historical and ongoing betrayal by Canadian capital, etc. are all givens. For those in the loop, the latter hover in around the political perception and analytical depth of Poli-Sci 101.

Now comes news that the sitting Conservative Government is planning a very serious sell-off of state assets, i.e. Crown corporations: Major Canadian government assets could be sold. On the chopping block are Canada Post, Via Rail, the Royal Canadian Mint, the agency that oversees security at Canada’s airports (very serious and very bad!), Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. (yikes!), the CBC (the propaganda mother corp.) and the Canada Council for the Arts (state-subsidized artistes going boo hoo hoo).

Here is what is being put into play: it’s a squeeze, a takeover. Engineered government debt, plus depreciated asset values (courtesy of the “financial crisis”) open the door for the economic hitmen.

Zeitgeist Addendum offers one of the better introductions to global capital at work. Feel free to superimpose the Addendum with the great work being done by Chris Martenson with his Crash Course. To view the role of economic hitmen, jump to Part 4 of the Addendum for John Perkins’ explanation.

HCR 0006 Media Twins: Alex Jones and Glenn Beck

In an addendum to the post HCR 0006 Setback, there was featured an interview of NH State Rep. Dan Itse by Fox News’ Glenn Beck. The spin on that interview should be as evident as the corporate interests served and the television demographic targeted.

Counter the latter with an interview of Rep. Itse by Alex Jones. The same dynamics hold, only with inversed degree and political motive. Beck and Jones constitute a journalistic yin-yang around HCR 0006 with Rep. Itse walking the line of the S-Curve that separates/unites the two hemispheres.

(Note: The interview with Jones actually preceded the interview with Beck.)
