Stephen Harper and the Foul Assault on Beverley McLachlin
I knew he would go after the Supreme Court, now that he is so bitter and crazy desperate.
I knew that he would not be able to contain his anger, after losing five SCOC decisions in a row.
And that his rage would explode out of every orifice like vomit or diarrhoea.
But who knew him and his depraved Cons would stoop so low as to try to smear the Chief Justice?
The Prime Minister's Office late Thursday suggested that the chief justice of the Supreme Court tried inappropriately to intervene in the process to appoint Justice Marc Nadon, even though her advice came before Nadon's appointment was announced and ultimately would have saved the government an embarrassing defeat.
With the sleazy stooge Peter MacKay trying to make the classy Beverley McLachlin sound like a cheap lobbyist who tried to bend the ear of the Prime Minister...
Late Thursday, the Prime Minister's Office issued a statement saying MacKay informed Prime Minister Stephen Harper that taking a call from the chief justice would be "inadvisable and inappropriate. The prime minister agreed and did not take the call."
When she did no such thing:
There is nothing in the statement from McLachlin's office saying she wished to speak directly to Harper, and nothing in the statement from the PMO, written by spokesperson Jason MacDonald, that McLachlin in fact asked MacKay if she could speak to Harper.
She was only doing her duty and having her office point out to his office that Justice Marc Nadon, as a federal Court judge, was not eligible to be appointed to the Supreme Court.
And the Cons are only trying to smear her to try to cover-up the fact that the only reason they chose Nadon was because he was the only judge who agreed with their shameful treatment of the child soldier Omar Khadr.
And now they want to punish the Chief Justice, or bully her and the Supreme Court, for daring to disagree with them. As they have done to so many other decent Canadians.
MP Sean Casey, speaking for the Liberals, said the government attacks people who offer what he called "contrary" opinions. "That's the way these guys operate — when the only tool in your tool kit is a sledge hammer everything looks like a rock."
Because they are foul bullies, and they have no respect for the law. Or our democracy.
For even as the PMO was issuing a statement to try to smear McLachlin, their Cons were ramming their foul Unfair Elections Act through committee without proper debate.
In the end, the clock ran out. A committee tasked with combing through the government’s 244-page overhaul of its election law altogether cut off its debate, no further through the bill than Page 47.
Which tells you all you need to know about the Con regime. And why Stephen Harper hates the Supreme Court so much.
Because if that bastion of non-partisan decency and Canadian values wasn't there to uphold the law and the Constitution, he could do whatever he wanted to us.
For he is a depraved beast who would turn our country into a jungle or a pig pen.
And as you know, he would do ANYTHING to debase it...
And the good news?
That grubby little man is only debasing himself. The Supreme Court is far more popular than Great Leader, and about a million times more trusted.
It will not bend to his bullying and neither will we. So he will grow ever more frustrated and angry, or just plain CRAZY.
We shall use all of the above to portray him as a dangerous maniac, who is threatening our democracy.
And in the end his assault on our justice system will only help destroy him...
