      THIS IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND...
      As Kittoh rightly points out, the surface issues allowed to come out in mainstream media are one thing...
      the whole truth is quite another... and we all need to know it, because IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY... ALWAYS....

      Note the date of this piece!!

      Imperial Minions, Transparent Rednecks and Dirty Drawers
      January 11, 2012

      Imagine someone coming into your home to inspect for cleanliness and
      write a report for his boss. He makes notes on the number of chairs you
      have, what you do with your garbage, if anyone is sick and many other
      things. This is the kind of information in the Indian agents' reports to
      Ottawa about the various Indigenous people they were responsible for as
      "wards of the Crown".

      One agent actually stated, "They are improving in sanitation, the
      majority now keeping their houses and surroundings clean, also having
      regular weekly washings of underclothing." Note#1

      The mentality reflected in such arrogance can be found throughout the
      record and has not changed one iota. It is carried on today in the
      unmistakable tone of articles, reports and speeches such as those
      discussed in this report.

      The Canadian Gov recently introduced a bill to legislate, First Nations
      Financial Transparency Act. NOTE#2 They were under pressure from
      elements who think that band council chiefs make too much money. They
      say they want to eliminate corruption in Native communities. Sounds more
      like they want to eliminate native communities and Native people period.
      If they want to look for corruption, they could look at their own
      colonial governments who have a long history of corruption, theft, fraud
      and criminal behaviour.

      Another bill by former chief of Kamloops First Nation Manny Jules, is
      the First Nations Property Ownership Act intended to "transform" the way
      Indigenous own community land. Ultimately, it will take the land away
      and eliminate the rez, ie the community which is the basis of Indigenous
      strength, identity and healing.

      Speaking of big salaries, Manny, appointed by Prime Minister Stephen
      "Pinnocchio" Harper as head Commish of the First Nations Tax Commission
      FNTC to advise the Minister of AAND, makes about $200,000 annually for
      nine years. NOTE#3

      The groups and people behind this legislative campaign include federal
      MP Kelly Block, Canadian Taxpayers Federation CTF based in Saskatchewan
      with offices from BC to Ontario and the Frontier Centre for Public
      Policy FCPP as well as the strident imperial voices of well paid
      academics like Flanagan, Widdowson and Bland. These people all act on
      the assumption that their way is always the better way for everybody
      else. They will "help" anyone.... as long as they are the boss...They
      are unscrupulous at twisting ideas and concepts.



      Taxpayers Soapbox
      The Canadian Taxpayers Federation CTF issued a highly controversial
      report on Native band chief salaries being more than the Prime
      Minister's. NOTE#4

      The CTF is a nonprofit advocacy group that lobbies mainly on tax issues.
      They have a board of directors, researchers and spokespersons. They
      claim they have over 70,000 supporters who donate money to finance their
      efforts.

      The CTF web site boasts, "CTF offices field hundreds of media interviews
      each month, hold press conferences and issue regular news releases,
      commentaries and publications to advocate the common interest of
      taxpayers. CTF representatives speak at functions, make presentations to
      government, meet with politicians, and organize petition drives, events
      and campaigns to mobilize citizens to effect public policy change."

      That's a lot of propaganda and psychological warfare.

      The CTF board includes director, Erin Chutter, Note#5 an aggressive and
      ruthless young business woman who knows what she wants: to be the
      world's biggest digger upper of cobalt and rare earth metals for the
      military and telecommunications industries. She's looking for big
      investors in her projects and schemes.

      Ms "Chatterbox" Chutter is the head of Vancouver-based Puget Ventures
      Inc./Global Cobalt Corporation with projects planned in Ontario north of
      Kenora and in Altai, Russia.

      Puget Ventures say their Werner Lake claim is "Canada's next primary
      cobalt producer". The 1,700 hectares in Northwestern Ontario is in
      Anishnaabek territory (Treaty 3). It includes "three extremely rare
      primary cobalt deposits and two significant nickel-copper-PGE
      deposits...about 90 km north of Kenora, Ontario and 90 km east Northeast
      of the town of Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba."

      Erin Chatter is also a founder and director of Sceptre Ventures and
      Quantum Rare Earth Development Inc. which is developing some rare earth
      elements near Uranium City, Saskatchewan and Niobium in Nebraska.
      They're looking for investors on the German stock exchange.

      Remember Frontenac Ventures?? Watch out for phoney Native protests as a
      way to raise funding for the many competing and scrambling venture
      capitalists.

      Another director at CTF is Andy Crooks who owns a company, RichCrooks
      Enterprises Ltd. Doesn't that say it all??



      The MP Pawn in the Game
      Kelly Block is a Saskatchewan MP in Harper's Conservative government.
      She's a loyal minion and token affirmative action for the colonial
      elitists. NOTE#6

      Here's what Kelly Block said,
      "This legislation helps pave the way to greater private sector
      investment and economic prosperity for First Nations. I have heard from
      aboriginal community members, who have said this information is
      important and necessary for their communities and I am proud that our
      government is taking action to deliver results for First Nations."

      Stooges, Parrots and Other Unmentionables
      Then token Indian, Chief of Whitecap Dakotas, Darcy "Yogi Berra" Bear
      parrots her comments, "This bill will mean more accountability of First
      Nation leaders to our people. Transparent and accountable First Nation
      governments support a strong environment for investment leading to
      greater economic development."

      That is what it is really about, "a strong environment for investment".
      But for whom? This is the full throttle Cons policy to welcome the
      global resource grabbers here. The aspiring minions invest their savings
      in developing resources while the corporate giants profit without
      apparent risk, growing fatter all the time.

      Don Sandberg, Cree from Norway House, is employed by the FCPP in their
      Aboriginal Frontiers Project. A few years ago, he was asked his views on
      Bill C-7, the Governance Act proposed by former Indian Affairs Minister
      Robert Nault.

      Don said, "We had, for the first time that aboriginal people can recall,
      a minister of the government saying to the ordinary people on the
      reserve, 'I know what your problems are through your many letters asking
      for assistance and I want to assist by making band councils accountable
      not only to you but the taxpaying public.'"

      Dom maintains, "The government has to start policing their funding
      commitments to the native people and respecting the taxpayers that fund
      aboriginal organizations." NOTE#7

      "The taxpayers that fund aboriginal organizations"!!??

      Hold on now, that's backwards and very provocative. The Canadian
      taxpayer who lives and works here and pays taxes is a beneficiary of
      Indigenous resources. The resources include water, trees, minerals,
      soil, etc. For example, the Cree share resources like petroleum with
      nonNative visitors. If all factors were calculated in, the visitors have
      a big debt to pay.

      Up to now, Indigenous have benefitted very little from the vast wealth
      taken out of our territories in many and diverse forms. The colonial
      debt to us continues to mount into astronomical numbers.

      Thought Control and Mass Thinking or Lack of
      Making Mental Knots NOTE#8

      "Go-To Think Tanks" NOTE#9
      The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) of the Foreign
      Policy Research Institute FPRI at the International Relations Program,
      University of Pennsylvania is a think tank that studies think tanks.
      Every year they publish lists of the top think tanks in the world.

      Most think tanks were new in the 1980's and 90's. Today, there are over
      6,000 think tanks worlwide. Most of them are "right" leaning in their
      politics though they may pretend otherwise. While the US boasts 1816
      thinking organizations, Canada has just 97. The UK has 278, France, 176,
      China 425, Israel 54 and the Vatican has 1 think tank.

      Think tanks are the people who influence government policy far more than
      any person who casts a vote in any election.

      The top US think til you stink tanks for 2010 are Brookings Institute,
      Council on Foreign Relations (the US counterpart to the RIIA) and the
      Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

      The #1 nonUS think tank is Chatham House (AKA The Royal Institute of
      International Affairs RIIA), UK, founded with Cecil Rhodes' imperial
      ideology and financing from Sir Abe Bailey and the Astor family. The
      epitome of the British colonial elite, Rhodes made his fortune when he
      "was able to monopolize the diamond mines of South Africa as De Beers
      Consolidated Mines". Note#10

      #2 on the list of 50 is Amnesty International, UK which does a good job
      of pacifying outrage among the populace.

      The Fraser Institute is Canada's top think tank at #17. The Centre for
      International Governance Innovation (CIGI)Canada is #32 and at #48 is
      the International Institute for Sustainable Development, (Canada)IISD,
      one of many creations of NWO promoter, Maurice Strong. NOTE#11

      Strong is or has been influential in think tanks all over the world,
      including Trustee at the Aspen Institute USA and Chair of the World
      Resources Institute at Harvard University. He was a Member of the
      Society for Development, Justice and Peace at the Vatican. He is a past
      Chairman of the advisory board of the United Nations University. The UNU
      is the publisher of the GLOBAL "GO-TO THINK TANKS" 2010.

      The Club of Rome is #17 on the Top 25 International Development Think
      Tanks 2010. Mau is a Member of the Executive committee. We didn't set
      out to write about him yet again, he just keeps popping up everywhere
      like a stalker.

      A Trying to Think Tank - the Frontier Centre for Public Policy FCPP
      Hawks and ConArtists in Sheep's Clothing

      The anti Indigenous FCPP was started in Winnipeg in 1997 by Peter Holle.
      It now has offices in Calgary and Regina, maintaining a "Western" focus.
      The FCPP propagandists write a lot of articles for mainstream media,
      post their favourites on their web sites and vigourously lobby
      government. See endnotes for more on the people at FCPP. NOTE#12

      FCPP managed to get onto the prestigious "Go-To Think Tanks" list in
      2008. They were ranked at #22 after Preston Manning's Canada West
      Foundation at #21. NOTE#13, NOTE#14

      Pinnocchio, PM of Canada, gushes, "Over the last decade, the Frontier
      Centre has grown into a sturdy Manitoba Maple, with solid branches
      reaching into every major area of public policy research and advocacy
      and did it without taking a nickel in government money. Frontier's
      ongoing contribution to serious, informed public policy debate in Canada
      has been outstanding."

      The FCPP boasts, their "Radio and TV personnel and advisors appear
      regularly on TV current affairs programs and radio talk shows" like
      Ottawa's CFRA580. NOTE#15 Their obnoxious comments are calculated to
      incite, insult and provoke while pushing the envelope of what can be
      said. Being government approved, they reflect and influence public policy.

      This excerpt from a December, 2011 Globe and Mail article, sums up their
      argument. The prolific and vociferous Tom Flanagan has a neat formula
      that sure looks like a capitalist recipe, capitalism being the economic
      system of colonialism and imperialism. NOTE#16

      "...Parliament is considering bills to make public the salaries of
      chiefs and councillors and, on an opt-in basis, to extend elected terms
      of office of reserve governments from two to four years. These steps in
      the direction of greater transparency and stability should enhance the
      rule of law for first nations. But much remains to be done, particularly
      to strengthen the property rights of first nations people, to give them
      real ownership, so they will have the same opportunities as other
      Canadians to make better lives for themselves." NOTE#17

      The articles compiled at the fcpp web site suggest a massive media
      campaign aimed low at everybody's gut level. It's a flawed campaign that
      does not stand up to reason or hard data. It leaves out completely the
      Indigenous way.




      More on the Academics
      Thought Leaders Behind the Rhetoric

      Tom Flanagan was a behind the scenes manipulator for Preston Manning of
      the Reform Party which morphed into the now Conservative Party led by
      Harper. Flanagan managed Harper's campaign career which brought Stephen
      Pinocchio to power. Tom is still an Advisor to the Prime Minister of Canada.

      "Our parliamentary government creates a concentrated power structure out
      of step with other aspects of society." - Harper and Flanagan

      It appears they prefer a totalitarian system totally run by them.

      A 2004 article by Marci McDonald in Walrus Magazine NOTE#18 gives a
      detailed rundown on Flanagan's career and the influences in his life.
      This includes how Flanagan in turn influences the federal government
      "led" by Stephen Pinocchio Harper.

      Flanagan, now pushing 70, grew up in Ottawa, Illinois and had a solid
      Roman Catholic education. He no doubt carries dual citizenship.

      The Calgary School of Redneckology
      Flanagan is the longtime head of a clique of "like-minded ideologues
      from the University of Calgary's political-science department...
      collectively dubbed the 'Calgary School'. Flanagan won his conservative
      spurs targeting the prevailing wisdom on the country's native people...

      "... in Calgary, one of his former students, Ezra Levant... sees
      Flanagan and Harper more as "symbiotic partners...I call him Don Tomaso.
      He is the master strategist, the godfather - even of Harper." "

      Radha Jhappan, associate professor in poly sci at Carleton University,
      refers to the Calgary counterpart as the "department of redneckology."
      NOTE# 19, 20

      Another major influence at the Calgary School is Leo Strauss.

      "...Leo Strauss, the philosophical father of the neo-conservative
      movement... argued that a ruling elite often had to resort to deception
      - a noble lie - to protect citizens from themselves. To that end, he
      recommended harnessing the simplistic platitudes of populism to
      galvanize mass support for measures that would in fact restrict
      rights...there's no mystery in the appeal of Strauss's theories to
      Flanagan or Cooper, who edited Strauss's thirty-year correspondence with
      Voegelin, Faith and Political Philosophy." NOTE#18



      Flanagan on Louis Riel
      Flanagan warned, "...Rehabilitating Riel's reputation could cost
      Canadian taxpayers billions in Metis land claims."

      According to McDonald, "Between 1972 and 1994, he received nearly
      $620,000 in research grants on the subject from the Canada Council and
      the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council...[including]
      $500,000 for a five-year project with four other academics, co-editing
      the collected writings of Louis Riel.

      "...in 1986. The Justice Department offered him a $103,000 contract as
      its chief historical consultant on ... a suit by the Manitoba Métis
      Federation for 1.4 million acres promised to Riel and his followers in
      1870..."

      Flanagan is an expert witness for the Government in numerous cases
      against Native land claims.

      He wrote a provocative book in 2000, "First Nations? Second Thoughts".
      NOTE#21 It was denounced by Native leaders and organizations. Joyce
      Green, associate professor at the University of Regina and Metis herself
      tells McDonald, "These aren't second thoughts. They're the same old
      first thoughts that the colonizers came with from Europe. It's a
      celebration of the original arguments that supported the subordination
      of indigenous peoples." NOTE#22

      Flanagan contended that "European Civilization was several thousand
      years more advanced than the aboriginal cultures of North America, both
      in technology and social organization...Owing to this tremendous gap in
      civilization, the European colonization of North America was inevitable
      and, if we accept the philosophical analysis of John Locke and Emer de
      Vattel, justifiable."

      ""There's a fundamental racism that underpins his view," says Radha
      Jhappan. "It's an amazingly selective reading of history...""

      In the Ottawa/Hull War Rooms and backroom company of the colonial
      agents, the racist language continues seamlessly from the earliest
      Indian Reports. That it is now coming out in public more and more is a
      signal for great concern. Many people are so inured, embittered or/and
      oblivious that they are not paying attention.

      Tom Gets Ted to Wash His Dirty Drawers
      Flanagan is "active in the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship,
      an aggressive lobby of professors fighting political correctness, on
      whose board he now sits."

      Ted Byfield, Alberta "elder of ConRants" NOTE#23 writes "in terms Leo
      Strauss might have approved. 'All these positions which Harper cherishes
      are there because of a group of people in Calgary - Flanagan most
      prominent among them. I don't think he knows how to compromise. It's not
      in his genes. The issue now is: how do we fool the world into thinking
      we're moving to the left when we're not?'"

      The Royal Society of Canada Note#24
      In 1996, when Flanagan was bashing Louis Riel, longtime friend and
      colleague, Barry "Cooper thumbed his nose at his pal's critics by
      nominating him to the Royal Society of Canada. "I don't think I disagree
      with Tom on anything," Cooper says. "Political or intellectual.""

      According to their web site, the Royal Society of Canada RSC "exists to
      recognize academic excellence, to advise governments and organizations,
      and to promote Canadian culture... the responsibility of a national
      academy is to provide expert advice on matters of national interest or
      urgency and to promote its national culture abroad... on multilateral
      agencies (G8, UNESCO, IAP)..."

      The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) got its Royal Charter NOTE#25 from
      Queen Vikki in 1883.

      Maurice Strong was a member for decades while Tom Flanagan has been a
      fellow since 1996. At first glance Tom and Mau would appear to represent
      opposing interests. This is the illusion of the two-headed monster. If
      you only see the heads, you may not realize they are attached to the
      same body.

      Tom is in the British imperialist, expansionist, anything but
      "conservative" faction seeking global empire. Mau is in the
      environmentalist/capitalist NWO UN global governance faction. Their end
      goals are identical - to serve the interests of the global elitists and
      destroy Nature and Indigenous by whatever means necessary. NOTE#26

      CONCLUSION
      A person who sits out on a hill comtemplating the universe is more
      likely to "get it" than many who have a big education, read and expound,
      their heads always buried in mindless comatose realms.

      Peace. Justice. Survival.
      The statement of the Group of 78 - for which the prime mover has been
      Andrew Brewin, former NDP MP for Toronto Greenwood - follows:

      The basic priorities of Canada's foreign policy should be threefold:

      Removal of the threat of nuclear war, the greatest danger facing mankind
      today;

      the strengthening of the United Nations and other global institutions
      designed to bring about a pacific settlement of disputes, foster
      international cooperation, promote the growth of world law and the
      protection of basic human rights;

      the mobilization of world resources to achieve a more equitable
      international order and bring an end to the crushing poverty which is
      the common lot of the majority of the Third World...

      Canada should make it clear that from the beginning it regarded the
      North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as an interim security measure
      until such time as a general system of collective security could be
      established...
      Canada should also support UN efforts to establish an International
      Satellite Monitoring Agency (ISMA). Such an agency, at present being
      actively studied at the United Nations, is a proposal for a peacekeeping
      force in space..."

      Signatories include many academics, church leaders, Maurice Strong,
      (then director, International Energy Development Corp., London, first
      president of CIDA), Bernard Wood, (executive director, North South
      Institute), Margaret Laurence, (author and educator), George Ignatieff,
      (Mike's dad, chancellor, University of Toronto and retired diplomat) and
      Marion Dewar, (then mayor of Ottawa).

      excerpt from a 2004 article in Walrus Magazine,
      The Man Behind Stephen Harper
      The new Conservative Party has tasted success and wants majority rule.
      If Tom Flanagan and his Calgary School have their way, they'll get it
      without compromising their principles
      By Marci McDonald

      "He went to Marquette High where the nuns on the Roman Catholic school's
      teaching staff... "focused on the heroic feats of the French missionary
      who gave the school its name: Father Jacques Marquette who teamed up
      with the voyageur Louis Jolliet to become the first Europeans to
      discover and trace the Mississippi. The emphasis was on Father Marquette
      and how he brought Catholicism to the Indians."

      Tom went on to the Catholic bastion of Indiana's Notre Dame and then to
      Duke University in Durham, North Carolina where he got his PhD in
      political science."

      Some of his mentors are Eric Voegelin, a German-born philosopher who had
      fled Hitler...John Hallowell, head of the political science department
      and one of Voegelin's disciples, Allan Kornberg, Duke's expert on
      decoding the statistical mysteries behind voting patterns, Austrian
      economist Friedrich Hayek [adored by Maggie Thatcher] and Frans de Waal.

      "1996 ... paper from a scholar at Johns Hopkins' School of Advanced
      International Studies in Washington... twenty-page treatise entitled
      "The Calgary School: The New Motor of Canadian Political Thought"
      reported that a band of Alberta academics had "given birth to a new form
      of nationalism, that in turn is changing the terms of debate in English
      Canada."

      ....

      "In 1983 Flanagan published Riel and the Rebellion: 1885 Reconsidered...
      with a motive: to block lobbying for a posthumous pardon that would
      exonerate Riel in time for the 1985 centennial of the Northwest
      Rebellion. A pardon, he declared, "now strikes me as quite wrong."

      "... Rehabilitating Riel's reputation, he warned, could cost Canadian
      taxpayers billions in Metis land claims. What seems most striking about
      the revised text is its notched-up adversarial tone...

      ....more research - an exercise that turns out to have been financed
      largely from federal coffers. Between 1972 and 1994, he received nearly
      $620,000 in research grants on the subject from the Canada Council and
      the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. That largesse
      includes a rare scholarly bonanza: $500,000 for a five-year project with
      four other academics, co-editing the collected writings of Louis Riel.

      "...in 1986. The Justice Department offered him a $103,000 contract as
      its chief historical consultant on one of the biggest land-claims cases
      before the federal courts: a suit by the Manitoba Métis Federation for
      1.4 million acres promised to Riel and his followers in 1870...

      "...Flanagan has... that role in a half-dozen other federal aboriginal
      disputes, including Victor Buffalo, et al. vs. The Queen - a landmark
      claim for more than $1 billion in damages by the Samson Cree Nation at
      Hobbema, near Edmonton, over Ottawa's handling of its oil and gas
      royalties. The Manitoba and Alberta governments have also hired him for
      their own battles over treaty rights. "What he's become is a very
      convenient tool for the government," says David Chartrand, president of
      the Manitoba Métis Federation.

      ...."He's concerned the state should not adopt people as wards," says
      Allan Kornberg. "It eventually has a corrosive effect on the entire
      society." That libertarian loathing of special rights for any group is
      the philosophical underpinning of Flanagan's most provocative work,
      First Nations? Second Thoughts, which unleashed outrage not only in
      aboriginal circles, but in the usually restrained corridors of academe.
      "These aren't second thoughts," says Joyce Green, an associate professor
      at the University of Regina and a Metis herself. "They're the same old
      first thoughts that the colonizers came with from Europe. It's a
      celebration of the original arguments that supported the subordination
      of indigenous peoples."

      What ignited the most fury was Flanagan's contention that aboriginals
      were simply conquered peoples who'd been bested by Europeans with a
      higher degree of "civilization," as he termed it. That argument,
      peppered with references to "savagery," hadn't been heard in polite
      company for decades. "There's a fundamental racism that underpins his
      view," says Radha Jhappan. "It's an amazingly selective reading of
      history and it's driven by a particular right-wing agenda that wants to
      undermine the claims of collectivity."

      When First Nations? Second Thoughts won the $25,000 Donner Prize in
      2001, Flanagan's foes weren't surprised. The award is funded by the
      Donner Canadian Foundation, which set out to promote a Reaganite agenda
      in this country. The foundation, in fact, funded Flanagan's basic
      research with a $25,000 grant.

      ....the Canadian Political Science Association cpsa awarded Flanagan's
      book its prestigious Donald Smiley Prize...

      ....Calgary's Canada West Foundation, Preston Manning and the
      foundation's president, Roger Gibbins...
      [Manning says that Flanagan and Harper are the ones who deposed him]

      [After some brainstorming with Manning who went on to found the Reform
      party....Flanagan had other interests] By then, Flanagan had plunged
      into a new intellectual passion, the theories of the once scorned
      Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek, who lauded free markets as the
      cornerstone of free societies, impervious to intrusive government
      meddling. In the late 1970s when Flanagan stumbled on his work, Margaret
      Thatcher had just cut short a Conservative policy confab in Britain by
      slapping down Hayek's The Constitution of Liberty on a desk. "This," she
      said, "is what we believe."

      [then after mulroney showed what he could do, flanagan joined manning in
      1990. but manning was a populist who wanted to communicate with the
      grassroots while flanagan found this disgusting. he figured he should
      run the whole show but they didn't listen to him]

      When Manning's closest collaborator had suddenly become Anderson, a
      veteran Ottawa operative who'd run the Washington office of the lobbying
      giant, Hill & Knowlton, [Flanagan quit in 1992].

      bio-politics - a collection of controversial theories on the biological
      basis for power that had become the rage of the American right.

      "Tom just fell in love with that literature," Gibbins recalls, "and
      brought it into the classroom." Indeed, on Flanagan's reading list was
      one book that had sparked a personal epiphany: Frans de Waal's
      Chimpanzee Politics, which won raves from Newt Gingrich in The New York
      Times. A study of the world's largest captive chimp colony at a
      Netherlands zoo, it chronicles the scheming, coups, and ultimate murder
      of the would-be alpha male, Liut. Ezra Levant, then still a student,
      remembers being riveted by Flanagan's lectures on the subject. "It was
      the most radical class I ever took," he says. "If a series of young
      males were fighting for power, a thoughtful chimpanzee would make
      alliances with all the losers and eventually take over the group."

      .... In de Waal's Dutch colony, savvy chimps built coalitions and bided
      their time. Over the next years, Flanagan and Harper might not have been
      on Reform's main stage, but they were far from inactive. A new
      intellectual infrastructure was taking shape on the Canadian right,
      echoing the web of conservative foundations and think tanks that paved
      the way for Reagan's 1980 ascension to the White House. Flanagan became
      an activist in Civitas, a network of 300 conservative thinkers spawned
      by the 1996 Winds of Change conference that Levant and fellow National
      Post columnist David Frum had organized in Calgary. Toronto's C.D. Howe
      Institute - whose researcher, Ken Boessenkool, would later become
      Harper's policy chief - and Vancouver's Fraser Institute, which opened a
      Calgary office under Cooper, were routinely proffering policies once
      considered too radically right wing for mainstream consumption

      [after backing stockwell day, flanagan soon realized that was a mistake
      too...and threw in his lot with harper]

      In one of their last joint literary efforts, Flanagan and Harper
      co-authored a public missive to Alberta premier Ralph Klein - co-signed
      by Boessenkool and two other members of the Calgary School - calling on
      him to build a political "firewall" around Alberta. That firewall
      letter, as it became known, demanded Klein use the muscle of Alberta's
      oil wealth to sieze control over health care, opt out of the Canada
      Pension Plan, and send the rcmp packing in what would amount to
      quasi-secession from the federal bosom.

      On Sunday, December 7, Jean-Pierre Kingsley, Canada's Chief Electoral
      Officer, went to the office. He almost never worked weekends, but Harper
      and Progressive Conservative leader Peter MacKay persuaded Kingsley they
      couldn't wait to register their new Conservative Party of Canada, forged
      from a merger that had been ratified by MacKay's members in a vote only
      the night before.

      [as harper's campaign manager, flanagan cut out a lot of other
      people]From a war room that ironically once housed Groupe Action, the ad
      firm behind the Liberals' sponsorship scandal, he directed an election
      effort that stunned even veteran Parliament Hill reporters with its
      fortress mentality. "Everything was very tightly held," says one Tory.
      "It was circle the wagons completely."

      As official co-chair of the Conservative campaign, Deborah Grey refuses
      to badmouth Flanagan - at least not in so many words. "He's bright and
      he's capable - a university guy - and I wish him well with his classes,"
      she says. "Some guys fit and some guys don't."

      Flanagan has never blanched at owning up to his most contentious
      beliefs: scrapping medicare in favour of personal medical savings
      accounts - a policy adopted by some U.S. corporations - and whittling
      aboriginal claims on land and self-determination down to individual
      property rights and municipal self-government.

      ....in Alberta, Ted Byfield, the unabashed voice of the West since the
      Calgary School's professors were pups, sees it another way - in terms
      Leo Strauss might have approved. "All these positions which Harper
      cherishes are there because of a group of people in Calgary - Flanagan
      most prominent among them," Byfield says. "I don't think he knows how to
      compromise. It's not in his genes. The issue now is: how do we fool the
      world into thinking we're moving to the left when we're not?"

      NOTE#20
      What is a RedNeck??
      The meaning of the word "redneck" has been muddied by the passage of
      time. To some it refers to some Scots loyalists; to others it refers to
      "poor whites" whose necks got burned red from bending over working in
      the sun all day.

      The self-proclaimed Redneck is sometimes not a bad guy. He's a working
      class individual who never expects to rise much above his current status
      in society.

      The real and dangerous Redneck considers the term to be a "very
      offensive epithet". (see Walrus magazine) The real redneck feels
      superior to others and aspires to be like the imperial elite. He cannot
      see or refuses to see the glass ceiling that will always keep him down
      at a certain level. Maybe that is why in denying his own identity, he
      needs others to downpress. He needs to be sure there is someone lower
      than himself.

      The Royal Society of Canada
      http://www.rsc.ca/rscinfo_what.php

      "The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) is the senior national body of
      distinguished Canadian scholars, artists and scientists. It is Canada's
      national academy. The primary objective of the RSC is to promote
      learning and research in the arts and sciences. The RSC consists of
      nearly 2000 Fellows, men and women who are selected by their peers for
      outstanding contributions to the natural and social sciences, in the
      arts and in the humanities.

      "As Canada's national academy, the RSC exists to recognize academic
      excellence, to advise governments and organizations, and to promote
      Canadian culture.

      "... The second responsibility of a national academy is to provide
      expert advice on matters of national interest or urgency. The third
      responsibility of a national academy is to promote its national culture
      abroad. This occurs in a variety of ways, and includes service on
      multilateral agencies (G8, UNESCO, IAP), ...

      In the late 1870s, the Governor General of Canada, the Marquess of
      Lorne, determined that Canada required a cultural institution to assist
      with Canada's development. In 1883, the Royal Society of Canada (RSC)
      was granted its Royal Charter and, since that time, succeeding governors
      general have remained closely involved with the affairs of the society.
      One of the functions of the President of the RSC is to serve on the
      Governor General's advisory council for appointments to the Order of
      Canada. [like the recent appointment of Paul Martin, Rick Hillier and
      others].

      The founding Fellows of the RSC included Sir Sanford Fleming, the
      originator of the world system of Standard Time, and Sir William Osler,
      one of the greatest physicians of his day. The "Fellows" of the RSC were
      nominated by a committee headed by the Principal of McGill University,
      Sir John William Dawson, and by the former Premier of Quebec, Pierre
      J.O. Chauveau. These two men served as the first and second presidents
      of the society.

      The RSC elects a total of approximately 75 Fellows per year. The RSC
      also elects up to 6 Specially Elected Fellows per year, for
      contributions to the objectives of the society other than by scholarship
      and research. Finally, a number of Foreign Fellows are elected annually.

      The RSC is governed by a 19-member Council, and by a 9-member Executive
      Committee of Council. Financial support is mainly from three sources:
      Fellows' subscriptions, membership contributions from 42 universities
      throughout Canada, and private sector support.

      ....the RSC advises governments and organizations through the provision
      of expert reports that address matters of national urgency from an
      interdisciplinary perspective."

      Their expert panel reports include "Environmental and Health Impacts of
      Canada's Oil Sands Industry
      (December 2010); A Review of the Potential Health Risks of
      Radiofrequency Fields from Wireless Telecommunication Devices
      (1999)(2001-2003); Recommendations for the Disposition of the Health
      Canada Primate Colony (1997) and their most recent, End-of-Life Decision
      Making (November 2011).

      DAWSON, Sir JOHN WILLIAM, geologist, palaeontologist, author, educator,
      office holder, publisher, and editor; b. 13 Oct. 1820 in Pictou, N.S.
      The Geological Society of London awarded Dawson the Lyell Medal in 1881
      for outstanding achievements in geology. In the same year the governor
      general, the Marquess of Lorne [Campbell*], called upon him to set up a
      royal society in Canada. Dawson envisaged a society similar to the Royal
      Society of London, but Lorne was adamant that the Canadian society's
      scope be broader and that it embrace not only science but also arts and
      literature. Lorne realized that only in this way would it be possible to
      involve to any significant extent the scholars and professionals of the
      French-speaking community. Accordingly, a provisional council met with
      Lorne at Dawson's home in December 1881. Present were Dawson, Hunt,
      Pierre-Joseph-Olivier Chauveau*, Narcisse-Henri-Édouard Faucher de
      Saint-Maurice, Daniel Wilson, Goldwin Smith*, Charles Carpmael, Alfred
      Richard Cecil Selwyn*, George Lawson, and John George Bourinot*.
      Together they drew up a constitution and proposed candidates for
      membership. The society was to be organized into two sections for the
      humanities and two sections for the sciences. Dawson, the founding
      president, remarked in his address to the first meeting of the Royal
      Society of Canada in May 1882 that membership was to be limited to
      "selected and representative men who have themselves done original work
      of at least Canadian celebrity." The society was to provide, in his
      words, "a bond of union between the scattered workers now widely
      separated in different parts of the Dominion." Its Transactions, to
      which Dawson would contribute numerous papers, notably on the fossil
      plants of western Canada, was for many years one of the principal
      Canadian outlets for the scholars of Canada.

      EXCERPT

      A royal charter is a formal document issued by a monarch as letters
      patent, granting a right or power to an individual or a body corporate.
      They were, and are still, used to establish significant organizations
      such as cities or universities. Charters should be distinguished from
      warrants and letters of appointment, as they have perpetual effect.

      At one time a royal charter was the only way in which an incorporated
      body could be formed, but other means (such as the registration process
      for limited companies) are generally now used instead.

      A Royal Charter is granted by Order in Council, either creating an
      incorporated body, or giving an existent one special status.[7] This is
      an exercise of the Royal Prerogative, and, in Canada, there are hundreds
      of organizations under Royal Charters. Such organizations include
      charities, businesses, colleges, universities, and cities. Today, it is
      mostly charities and professional institutions who receive Royal Charters.

      Application for a charter is a petition to the Queen-in-Council. To
      receive a Royal Charter, the organization must have corporate members
      who have at least first degree level in a relevant field, consist of
      5,000 members or more, be financially sound, and it must be in the
      public interest to regulate the institution under a charter. However,
      meeting these benchmarks does not guarantee the issuance of a Royal
      Charter.[8]

      [edit] Companies and societies Companies, corporations, and societies in
      Canada founded under or augmented by a Royal Charter include:

      subject to municipal Acts of parliament applied generally to other
      municipalities, and instead are governed by legislation applicable to
      each city individually. The Royal Charter codifies the laws applied to
      the particular city, and lays out the powers and responsibilities not
      given to other municipalities in the province concerned.
