I AM A CANADIAN . . . PROUD AND TRUE: BY HOWARD GALGANOV

WH

I AM A CANADIAN . . . PROUD AND TRUE:

I have a great respect, admiration, and sincere FONDNESS for the United States of America. And I have a deep emotional commitment to Israel . . . BUT FIRST AND FOREMOST, I AM A CANADIAN.
So, when my country comes under attack as what is happening as I am writing this, MY BLOOD BOILS WITH ANGER.
In Canada, we have no shortage of our own LEFTIST problems. We have no shortage of language and cultural issues to deal with, AND governments that are TOO BIG, TOO REGULATORY HAPPY, TOO EXPENSIVE . . . Etcetera.
And just as I’m critical of what’s happening in the USA, I am NO LESS critical of what is happening politically and socially in Canada. But that doesn’t matter now.
When I first realized that America came under attack on 9/11, I sat in front of my television, with tears streaming down my cheeks, because a BEST FRIEND was just harmed. And this morning (October 22, 2014), just as on 9/11 . . . tears filled my eyes as I watched the news unfold as a gunman was shooting it out in MY PARLIAMENT BUILDING.

CANADA FIGHTS WELL BEYOND OUR SIZE:

Canada is a small country in terms of population, at just about THIRTY-FIVE Million People, and HUGE in size, the second largest landmass in the world.
But in spite of our small population, NO COUNTRY has ever provided more military in the defense of FREEDOM on a per capita basis than has Canada.
Canada was one of the FIRST countries to send TROOPS to Afghanistan, who didn’t hide in their compounds, as virtually all other Nations’ troops did.
OUR TROOPS FOUGHT, BLED AND DIED.
Regardless of how we ARGUE with each other in Canada, TOUCH ONE CANADIAN and you’ve touched us all. And if anyone thinks for a second that Canada will back down when PUSHED, they should have a very serious DOUBLE THINK, because Canada NEVER BACKS DOWN.
We are one TOUGH “little” country with a very BIG heart.
And if this shooting at Parliament has anything to do with Islamo/Fascism, as the killing of one soldier, and the wounding of another on Monday (October 20, 2014) in St Jean Sur Richelieu (just South of Montreal) was carried-out in the name of Islam . . . THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY.

HERE’S SOME BRIEF PERSONAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

1 – I have spoken at Parliament at the invitation of the government.
2 – I have led various large events on Parliament Hill including the Pledge Ride in 2012.
3 – I have visited often with Members of Parliament on Parliament Hill, dining from time to time in the Parliamentary Dining Room.
4 – Anne and I have enjoyed a Private Supper with Stephen Harper (Canada’s Prime Minister) as our guest at the Syrian/Lebanese Club in Montreal.
5 – And currently, I am organizing with several Members of Parliament to have a special Tour of Parliament for our American Riders of the Pledge Ride for 2015, which this year will be held in part in Ottawa . . . ending in Washington DC.

HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE:

IF THIS WAS AN ATTACK IN THE NAME OF ISLAM . . . NEITHER ALLAH NOR MOHAMMED WILL BE ABLE TO PROTECT THOSE RESPONSIBLE.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

EVEN HE VOTED EARLY: President Barack Obama arrives to cast a ballot at the Dr. Martin Luther King Community Service Center in Chicago, Monday while participating in early voting.

By Paul Miller
CHICAGO — Early Voting in Illinois got off to its typical start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.
Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

MACHINE ISSUES: Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan had trouble voting for himself on Monday when early voting started in Illinois.
“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”
The conservative website Illinois Review reported that “While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race.
Moynihan offered this gracious lesson to his followers on Twitter: “Be careful when you vote in Illinois. Make sure you take the time to check your votes before submitting.”
Cook County Board of Elections Deputy Communications Director Jim Scalzitti, told Illinois Watchdog, the machine was taken out of service and tested.
“This was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine,” Scalzitti said. “When Mr. Moynihan used the touch-screen, it improperly assigned his votes due to improper calibration.”
Scalzitti stressed that at no time were Moynihan’s votes actually registered, and that voters are always asked to make sure the votes they cast are correct before they are counted. Scalzitti praised Moynihan for checking his ballot and alerting the election judge of the machine’s failure.

$10G to watch grass grow: Coburn report details worst examples of gov't waste

WH 
WASTE BY YOUR CONGRESS,  AND THE PRESIDENTS MANY DEPARTMENTS ?
cordgrass.jpg
The government spent $10,000 to watch this type of grass grow. (USDA.GOV)
As American taxpayers worried about the terror threat from the Islamic State, the crisis at the border and the economy, the U.S. government spent their money to give rabbits massages, to teach sea monkeys to synchronize swim and to literally watch grass grow.
These and other examples of wasteful government spending were detailed by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn in his annual “Wastebook,” his final edition since he is retiring early next year.
“I have learned from these experiences that Washington will never change itself,” Coburn, R-Okla., said in a statement. “But even if the politicians won’t stop stupid spending, taxpayers always have the last word.”
The first example cited in the report is the millions spent on what one attorney called the government’s “dirty little secret”: paid administrative leave for troublesome employees. Workers who were placed on leave for disciplinary reasons, such as misconduct, security concerns or criminal issues, received $20 million while on leave this year.
These workers, according to Coburn, were essentially on a paid vacation that can last for months or years. The GAO also detailed this phenomenon in a report Monday. According to the GAO, during a three-year period more than 57,000 employees were placed on leave for 30 days or more, costing taxpayers $775 million in salary alone.
Another wasteful project with a big price tag is the Pentagon’s plan to destroy $16 billion in military-grade ammunition that it deems no longer useful. Sounds pricey, right? Well add in the fact that on top of that, the feds plan to spend $1 billion just to destroy the ammo.
“The amount of surplus ammunition is now so large that the cost of destroying it will equal the full years’ salary for over 54,000 Army privates,” the report notes.
Other examples vary from the serious, to the aggravating, to just plain bizarre. One that takes the cake is the $10,000 the government spent to watch grass grow --- seriously.
That project is the brainchild of the Department of Interior’s U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which is paying for the growth of the smooth cordgrass to be observed on a Florida reserve. The money covers “the cost to monitor grasses, restore two acres as a demonstration and publish a guide on best practices for cultivating the cordgrass, known formally as Spartina alterniflora.”
Still more examples show that while some Americans are struggling to make ends meet in a rough economy, there is a group in the U.S. getting major perks: animals.
In one instance, the government shelled out $387,000 to provide rabbits with a relaxing daily massage. The critters were treated to a “mechanical device that simulates the long, flowing strokes used in Swedish massages” to study the effect of massages on exercise recovery, according to the report.
Another animal getting a fun extracurricular activity courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers are sea monkeys. The government dropped $50,000 on a project to study the swirl of sea monkeys’ collective movements. The researchers did so by choreographing a synchronized swimming routine for the tiny shrimp.
The government also spent $856,000 to throw mountain lions on a treadmill and $171,000 to watch monkeys gamble. They also spent $331,000 on a study that led to a mind-blowing discovery, that "hungry people get cranky and aggressive."
“With no one watching over the vast bureaucracy, the problem is not just what Washington isn’t doing, but what it is doing.” Coburn said in the statement. “Only someone with too much of someone else’s money and not enough accountability for how it was being spent could come up some of these projects.”
Other notable examples include $90 million spent to promote U.S. culture around the world, $414,000 spent on a U.S. Army video game that some in the intelligence community have worried could inadvertently train terrorists and $4.6 million spent on “lavish” homes to house Border Patrol agents in areas temporarily.
Coburn, known as “Dr. No” for his strong stance against excess spending in Washington, announced in January he is retiring from the Senate early due to ongoing health issues. The Republican had already announced he would not seek reelection but decided to leave his term two years early, in January 2014.
A Coburn spokesperson told FoxNews.com that the senator has said that answers about if and how the “Wastebook” will continue will have to wait until next year. The spokesperson said Coburn hopes every lawmaker will make monitoring government waste a priority, but that one does not have to be a current lawmaker to do so.'

4 SIMPLE QUESTIONS ?

WH
SUBMITTED BY ROBERT FIRTH FREE ZONE WRITER, 
Here are 4 Simple questions from a reputable attorney...............

This really should get your "gray matter" to churning, even if you are an Obama fan. I wouldn't want my hero to be made out to be a liar, would you?
  For all you "anti-Fox News" folks, none of this information came from Fox. All of it can be verified from the listed sources.....or even a good history book.  It is very easy for someone to check out.

4 Simple Questions

1.Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes.'So how can the Obama 'birth certificate' state he is "African-American" when the term wasn't even used at that time?

2.The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961 & Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, Right ? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in " Kenya , East
Africa ".

This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama's birth, and 27 years after his father's birth. How could Obama's father have been born in a country that did not yet Exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the "British East Africa Protectorate". (check it below)
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_%28http:/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya%29

3.On the Birth Certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is "Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital".
This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity Home", Respectively.
The name did not change to Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged.
How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978 ?
(CHECK IT BELOW)

(http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx
)

Why hasn't this been discussed in the major media ?

4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama's book on his father. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I'm not a math genius, so I may need some help from you. Barack Obama's "birth certificate" says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when Obama was born. That should have put his father's date of birth approximately 1936-if my math holds (Honest! I did That without a calculator!!!) Now we need a non-revised history book-one that hasn't been altered to satisfy the author's goals-to verify that WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Just how many 3 year olds fight in Wars? Even in the latest stages of WW II his father wouldn't have been more than 9 years old. Does that mean that Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination or political purposes ?

Very truly yours,
Rich

Order for millions of blank work permits, green cards raising amnesty concerns

WH

A government print order for as many as 34 million blank work permits and green cards is raising concern that the Obama administration could be preparing an executive order for amnesty after the November election.
An online solicitation by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services seeks vendors that can produce a minimum 4 million cards per year for five years, and 9 million in the early stages.
If the numbers reported by Breitbart.com on Monday are correct, they are vastly larger than official estimates of 12 million illegal residents in this country.
“There aren’t enough federal employees from here to Pluto to do adequate background checks on 34 million,” said Bob Dane, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Dane told Watchdog.org that President Obama appears “to be getting his ducks in a row” before legalizing illegal residents by executive fiat.

“It’s another petulant display of contempt of Congress,” he said.
A USCIS official told MailOnline the solicitation for green cards was published “in case the president makes the move we think he will.”
But the official said the agency is not yet committed to buying the materials.
