Media Grewal tape dispute obscures fact that Representative Democracy is Dead


Shades of “Deepthroat”!!! It’s very ironic that we learn the true identity of the famous insider snitch that helped bring down the corrupt spin team in the Nixon administration, on a day when snitches and tapes play prominently in doing the same thing to the Martin cartel.

The blogs today are alive with analyzing the tapes and nattering over authenticity of the tape and supposed edits…and on and on. I want to come at this from a different perspective.

First I want fellow spin-besieged citizens to completely discount any Liberal party notions of "denyability through “muddied authenticity” or the moot points of unskilled edits or non edits and all other silly technical point-counter point debate on the lost issue of tape continuety. Put all this distracting noise out of your thinking and join me in reviewing the salient points of the CONTENT and arriving at the core issue in this "Bribescam"


1) First off, the conversations are too complex and true to character to be faked. Why/how could Grewal go to all the expense of hiring actors to play roles and sound exactly like the people alleged to be taped? Why put party and personal credibility/liability on the line for such a lame political talking point? The content of the tape( transcribed dialogue) is too natural and true to the personalities involved to be faked. And the content of the transcriptions of the meetings has NOT been denied. Nit picking about a couple of alleged edits pales in comparison to this simple fact.

2) The real story is in the transcripts that have a Martin cabinet minister and his top aid admitting that both Stronach, Brison , as well as "others", were bribed with PM appointments. This reveals a genetic MO of bribing support with the enticement of appointed positions.....and Gonery wintesses said as much...this is how judgeships are gained...political bribes for party faithful and support. Bribery and illegal and unethical use of both Martin and Chretien's office appointment powers is a self admitted fact validated by his closest toadies on tape.

3) Further creedence to the charges of systemic Liberal party graft come from the continued Liberal involvement of top politicians with Grewal in his "fishing trip". Why contiue to entertain an opportinistic advance from Grewal when all involved know this is both unethical, anti-democratic and illegal. The proper way for non guilty Liberal officials to answer phone calls from opposition MPs fishing for a bribe to cross the floor is like this : " Sorry Mr Grewal, we cam make no offers of incentives or inducements connected with patronage appointment for you to cross the floor to the liberals....this is illegal and unethical. We are glad you had a change of heart but prefer you sit as an independent and vote with us as we cannot guarantee or offer you enticement (by law) for your support. Have a nice day and thank you for your interest in the Liberal party.... CLICK ( sound of Murphy hanging up) But this didn't happen...the offer-counter offer in couched language continued, betraying a willingness to buy an opposition member. The greatest act of hypocrisy this year was Jack Layton urging investigation into bribery when he himself was bought in a series of clandestine hotel room meetings where an NDP budget was cobbled together to replace the one at the throne speach. Jack trolled his influence and he had his price....scumbag!

4) The content of the transcribed tapes reveal a head Liberal cabinet minister and PM's aid telling Grewal that in their mind they knew that what they did with Stronach and particualrly Brison was illegal and could be investigated if things were not handled properly....so in Liberal mindset the difference between a criminal act of bribery and common Liberal operational politics was a 2-4 week wait before the appointment payoff happened. This revealed that PM appointment bribery is common place in Liberal politics and in fact was comfirmed in the way they dismissed the charges: They shrugged off backroom discussions between Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh, prime ministerial aide Tim Murphy and Tory MP Gurmant Grewal as routine political horse-trading.

The end analysis of what we see was stated ( with no denials) in the transcript of the Grewal tapes, backed by what we hear from Gomery witnesses, is that bribery is a common Liberal practice... genetic in the Martin-Chretien regimes. This now being a self admitted established fact, we see that represenative democracy has been totally undermined by the Liberals making any elected or appointed representative's partisam support a marketable comodity that is bought, sold and traded to the highest bidder. The losers are the constituents of these swine who sell their electorate's will out to the market forces of a corrupt federal political cartel sitting in power.

The increase in pay, pension and perks for partisan treason is lucerative and not as obvious as the large cash payments in brown envelopes the private sector patrons recieve.....no laundered cash trail in PM appointment bribery.....right Scott?..Belinda?...Chuck?...Jack?

Don't discount the fact the Grewal seems like a shady guy himself. I think he is dumb enough to edit the tapes in a couple places.

According to Steve Madley on 580 CFRA this morning (in Ottawa), they had two of their audio engineers analyze the recording and both independantly came to the conclusion that the tapes were doctored, and poorly so.

I don't know if they were doctored but I wouldn't discount it, especially since CFRA and Steve Madley have been bashing the Liberals since as long as I can remember.

I was making a direct reference to the buzz on CFRA about the "edits"...this ( and the doubt surrounding Grewal's character) is side noise that I ask you to "tune out".

No one edited the parts where a Liberal minister and party official are admitting to the bribed inducements of Stronach and Brison and "others". No edit can discredit the meanings Dosanjh and Timmy were sending.

Any reasonable interpretation of these conversations will summize that party politics is degenerate and illegal the way the current Liberal regime plays it.

Grewal may not the the cleanest or sharpest knife in the CPC drawer, but the content of his taped session makes it clear where the Liberal regime comes from where subverting democracy is concerned....and I include the floor crossing, and potential floor crossing, trash in the same rotten basket.

No amateur edit job detracts from these self evident facts.

I invite you to go to Grewal's site and read the transcripts. The link is provided on the post.

Amen, WLM. Any issues with Grewal are dwarfed by the obviously perfidious Librano conduct.

God Almighty - this town stinks like a whorehouse at low tide.

Exactly: The Librano Press is back to it's speciality, deflecting and distracting for the Libs. Editting of the tapes, if it even occured, does in no way change the fact that:

1. The Libs spoke in obvious indirect mob-speak for 4 hours instead of telling Grewal to buzz off. It would've taken 10 minutes max to simply say, "We'd love to have you cross and sit as an independant, and we'll consider you running as a lib the next election. Good day sir!"

2. The Libs suggested they could get the ethics commissioner to clear Grewal.

But, if the MSM has it's way, Grewal is just a scumbag. The MSM will ensure that there is so much dirt thrown that no body will be able to keep track of the only issues at stake.

The easiest job in Canada is being a Liberal; you can't go wrong.

Well this isn’t the way I here it from Paul Wells. After this MSM elitist dork tore a strip off the blogging community on Kate’s Small Dead, Animals comments page, I told him what I thought of the Hubris, elitism, cliquishness and lack of inquisitiveness of Liberal dirt that defines the lethargic and preachy GTA based MSM....I got the typical snotty answer and he continued to ooze arrogance in the way he answered other bloggers, who he obviously thinks are the scum of the earth.

According to Wells, most of these eastern scribblers and reporter wannabes know they can’t bite the hand that feeds them so it's ignore the nakedness of their Librano emperor s or look for a new job.

Obviously Wells and his ilk (like the political whores that the Liberals buy with bribe money) put money above integrity....so in my mind they (MSM sell outs) have no moral authority to take shots at guys like Harper and the CPC who may get snookered by cheaters and be the under dog… but it's because they place their integrity above the dirty game placed in Ottawa. They remain the party that can't be bought and refuses to play a dirty game...unlike their detractors in the Liberal lap dog press of which Wells is a main lap dog.

Next time he goes on about lowly bloggers not being fit to kiss his elitist boots, just ask him to sit up and beg for his next doggy treat from the Librano press trainer.
