The Day Stephen Harper Admitted he Pressured the Police to Break the Law
For years Stephen Harper has made a mockery out of our democracy, turned our parliament into a Roman circus, attacked the courts, and flouted the rule of law over and over again.
Like some deranged ruler on some monstrous throne, who is so crazed with the lust for power, and so morally depraved, he now believes he's above the law and can do anything he wants.
And for years he has managed to dodge and weave, and claim that he knows nothing about anything bad that ever happens in his sinister office. Or the dungeons of the PMO.
But now at last, he may have finally gone too far.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper acknowledges his government pressured the Mounties to swiftly destroy long-gun registry records, even though they’d been warned it was illegal.
An exchange in the House of Commons on Tuesday marked the first time the Conservative government has flatly asserted that it was actively encouraging the RCMP to delete the registry data in 2012 — notwithstanding an ongoing investigation by information commissioner Suzanne Legault and a written promise from the public safety minister to respect the law.
Because when he pressures the national police force to commit an illegal act. And then tries to protect the police and himself, by rewriting laws that were in existence at the time the illegal act was committed.
After being informed this March of Legault’s case for laying charges, the Conservatives responded by retroactively rewriting the 2012 law, backdating it to October 2011 when the long-gun bill was first presented in Parliament, and burying the amendments in a 167-page omnibus budget bill.
Legault has called the government’s move a “perilous precedent” and a history-denying “black hole” that sets the stage for retroactive cover-ups of more serious government wrongdoing, including electoral fraud and spending scandals.
He is guilty of rewriting history, like Big Brother himself...
He is guilty of counselling a criminal act.
And when on top of all that he lies like a thief, by claiming that this was all about the move to destroy the gun registry. When the gun registry would have been destroyed whether the RCMP had waited a few weeks or not.
Like he does in this exchange with the Liberal deputy leader Ralph Goodale...
He is clearly desperate, absolutely shameless, and capable of saying and doing ANYTHING.
But the good news is that the Ontario Provincial Police are investigating this scandal. And if they determine that the RCMP did indeed break the law, as I can't imagine they won't, they will come under pressure to also lay charges against Boss Harper and his PMO gang.
And whether they do or they don't, the controversy and the stench of criminality, along with the stink lines of the Duffy trial, will linger in the air all the way to the election.
And Harper's decision to rewrite laws, even as he passes his equally Orwellian Bill C-51, can only convince more Canadians that he is too corrupt AND too dangerous to remain in office.
Because he is dangerous, he is out of control, he does think he can get away with anything.
And for that reason alone he must be defeated.
Justice and decency must be restored.
And the mad king on his monstrous throne.
Must be restrained as soon as possible...
