This is the part where our politicians sell our country out from under us , pocket some bribe money , and leave town quick.
Note the part where it mentions 9 other countries ? They mean Canada as well.

Illegal Spying Below

Watch the Video. That's all I gotta say.

Searching for truth in Gaza conflict


It has been my observation certain news articles , especially unpopular ones, tend to mysteriously vanish. So , I'm copying this one , in full, it was written by John Robson , QMI agency  , in the toronto sun. 

With Israel winding down its incursion into Gaza, we search through the physical and mental rubble for lessons. As usual, an air of unreality permeates the exercise.
The conventional wisdom seems to be that a brutal Israeli overreaction to Hamas provocations outraged world opinion and forced Tel Aviv back to the negotiating table with reasonable local players and its staunch American ally to seek a two-state solution to help the poor Palestinians. Not one bit of that is true.

OK. The Hamas provocations were real, from rocket attacks to an elaborate expensive network of terror tunnels. But Israel did not overreact and was not brutal.
Those who say “Israel has a right to defend itself but…” have never explained what it could have done that would have been less forceful yet effective. And despite the common narrative of Israel as a callous bully spraying fire at civilians and outraging world opinion, the IDF acted to minimize civilian and maximize jihadi deaths with considerable effect.

Most accounts tell you the bulk of victims were “civilians” then list a few dead children for added pathos. And all decent people are horrified by non-combatant deaths, young or old, and wish they could be avoided. But in fact a far higher proportion of the dead are young men with terrorist affiliations than would result from careless or random fire. And Hamas has been storing weapons in schools, firing from beside hospitals, hiding tunnel entrances behind UNRWA signs and otherwise seeking to maximize innocent deaths it can then exploit for publicity and recruitment.
Why do we hear so little of this? Because the official account of events within Gaza comes from Hamas, which doesn’t just kill Jews and its own people without compunction, as human shields or in brutal extralegal torture-murders of suspected collaborators. It also routinely bullies and threatens journalists, who then say, and omit, what Hamas dictates without mentioning that they report under duress.

As for international “pressure” helping end the incursion, world opinion may influence the course of debate in a genuinely divided society like, say, white South Africa during apartheid. But something like 95% of Israeli Jews favoured “Operation Protective Edge.” Mind you, more than half think it ended too soon.

Thus the Obama administration is doubly deluded in thinking UN, Western liberal and Islamist outrage now force a stubborn Israeli government to join a negotiating process among various local parties seeking a genuine compromise solution. John Kerry can trade words with open backers of Hamas like Qatar and Turkey until his Nobel Peace Prize comes home, but Israelis know there’s no partner for peace on the other side so they do what they need to do and stop when they think it’s done.

As it happens most of Israel’s neighbours hate and fear Hamas, and its Iranian backers, so much that for once they don’t want to kill the Jews then start in on each other. This time the Saudi, Egyptian and Jordanian governments, among others, want to do it in the other order.
Finally, the Muslim world does not sympathize with the Palestinians. No Arab neighbour has offered them refuge and citizenship at any point in the last 66 years. Instead, like Hamas, those governments find Palestinian suffering instrumentally useful but otherwise uninteresting.

There is an old saying that a lie is half-way around the world before the truth gets its boots on. But as the dust settles, at least some people will keep asking questions like: Why do the negotiations go nowhere? What does the Hamas Charter say? Why do media peddle Hamas numbers? Why should we trust Western journalists and politicians who are so reliably wrong on every important aspect of the Middle East?

Why the persistent air of unreality?

Wow Voice Chat

Wow is an online game I play a lot. It has built in voice chat ,which didn't matter because when it first came out , years ago , it sucked pretty bad.

But these days, it's a lot better.

So I"m making this article on my blog to show people how to set it up , and we'll give it another go.

When you're in the game, press Esc , system , and select voice .  This should bring you to the voice chat screen.

Obviously , make sure the "Enable Voice Chat" box is selected.

We'll start with the Microphone.  Pick the first one in the list of Microphones , make sure the volume is about half (you can move it up and down if it turns out to be too loud) . 

Press the Record Button , say "Test Test Test" into your microphone , and then press play. You should hear your voice . You should also in the Volume Read Out right beside the play button , see a little gray bar moving back and forth with your voice.  If you see the grey bar moving around when you talk , you know your microphone is set up. If not , check your mic. Is it plugged in ? Is it turned on , etc. 

If that fails , go to the List of Microphones and try the next one.  Work your way down the list and hopefully one of them will work. 

Speakers are pretty obvious. If you can hear your voice from the microphone test , you don't have to do anything. Otherwise , move all the volume controls to 50%  , start with the top speaker , and try again. Work your way down the list until you can hear yourself. 

The settings you see here are correct for push to talk. That is , people only hear you when you're pushing the transmit button , and I've selected the left control key as the key. If you want a different one, press the red button and press some other key , and that will be the transmit key. 

 Now that we (I hope !) have you talking , it's time to choose a Chat channel. 

Open the channel menu, it's on the minimap. 

And Go to the custom channel part. You will click on it , enter the channel name, and the password , if there is a password.  And then you should be happily chatting with everyone else on the channel. Note that if the channel doesn't exist , it will be created.

And that should be that.

New Fire Alarm System (Or a Hidden Mic)

New fire alarm system. They now put the speakers right inside your home.
Problem is , it's the post Edward Snowden Era , and thoughts about NSA and CSEC spying on you and everything are flying all over the internet.

And now they're putting this thing in every single apartment.
Product specs look innocent enough of you look up a Wheelock E50 Speaker , but still. It would be a really good way to put a microphone in every apartment in the country , wouldn't it ?

Overly Suspicious ? Yes. Tin Foil Hat ?

Every contact number for Cooper Industries is inside the United States. Meaning they are legally required to do anything any US Government agency asks (such as the NSA). Which means yes, the USA believes it has the right to put hidden microphones in the things.

Like they put data taps in computers that were headed for china. (real fact , not tin foil hat theory , they got caught red handed.)

Congradualtions. I don't know whether the thing is bugged or not , that's speculation , but a path now exists for the NSA to put a microphone in every non-americans home. And by the way , the consider it perfectly legal.

Probably it's just a Speaker.

But they claim the right to bug it , if they like.

I want it removed.

I mailed a letter to David McGuinty , Liberal Member of Parliment for Ottawa South.

XXXXXXXXXXXXx Apt XXX , Ottawa South
They put in a new fire alarm system today.
It apparently requires a speaker in every apartment.
(picture enclosed)
Off the bottom of the speaker I got the name Wheelock
Looking up this on google , I got a Wheelock E50 White Speaker , from
Cooper Industries.

All contacts for Cooper Industries are Either Ohio, or Texas , in the USA.

I talked to the Land Lord, he is REQUIRED by the fire code, to put speakers in every apartment.
And the Crux of The Matter :

The USA has declared it has the right to order it's corperations to cooperate with government departments, such as the NSA , to assist in spying. We have seen examples of them putting bugs in routers, or other computers, and shipping them off to China, bugging Angela Merkels phone (German Chancellor). Etc etc.

Odds are , there ISN'T a microphone in those speakers. :)

But still , the USA has reserved the right to put one there , if they feel like. And if those speakers are everywhere in Canada , or even just everywhere in Ontario (depending on what level the fire code is operating at) , that means the USA has reserved the right , at least , to spy on anyone in Ontario , if they feel like it.

And by the way , Obama has already declared this kind of activity to be perfectly legal.

I protest , and I want this USA made device out of my apartment. I don't trust it. Even if it has no listening device in it now , sooner or later it will need repairs, which means it essentially reserves permission to put one in , any time they feel like , and call it a repair visit.

Allowing the USA to put devices in every home in the province or country is a huge mistake , and I think it should be undone. XXXXX  XXXXXXXX

(Edit) Conversation with the Land Lord to have it removed. They refuse. It's part of the Fire Code to have it in every unit of the building.

What the heck is this thing ?

What the heck is this thing ?
Ok , firstly , I admit , these pics have been in my camera a while. This thing just apeared one day at this corner , I don't know what it is , but it has the city of ottawa logo on it. A day or two later, it was moved to the opposite side of the intersection , and a few days later it was gone.

I'm guessing ... traffic counter ?
Who knows. That dish at the top looks like a really tiny radar dish. And it's pointed at the center of the intersection.

The weirdest things these days keep popping up.

Little Doggie (ok, it's a fox)

It's probably not shown very well , but near the Elmvale Shopping center in Ottawa, Ont, there was a fox running loose. I caught some pics, this is the best one. It's not that good. Hopefully it will magnify properly when you click on it...

Caliphate Summer War

Iraq fighting rages after Sunni militants declare caliphate


Alarming regional and world powers, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed universal authority when it dropped the local element in its name and said its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as leader of the Islamic state, was now caliph of the Muslim world — a medieval title last widely recognized in the Ottoman sultan deposed 90 years ago after the First World War.
"He is the imam and caliph for Muslims everywhere," group spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani said in an online statement on Sunday, using titles that carry religious and civil power.

 Dang. I had such hopes for this group. If Iraq was such a corrupt dive of a country , maybe the muslims would solve the problem and make their own , stable nation. 

But now , with this declaration that they rule the world , and all muslims should obey and all non-muslims need to die , I see the truth. 

This is a Summer War. 

What is a Summer War ? 

In europe , in the napolionic era , when there was no birth control , guess how they cut back the population ? They got all the young men all hot and bothered about some cause or another , and sent them off to war , deliberately seeking to get them killed off. Commanders actually had orders not to return until they had gotten rid of a certain amount of their command. 

The other muslim countries are not going to cow tow to some upstart, that much is certain. And the west certainly isn't going to stand back and let some islamic super power come into existance with the publically stated coal of brutally murdering anyone not following their particular brand of islam.

This is a summer war. It's just to get all the young men fire up , and then kill them off. A flash in the pan. It's going no where.
