On Thursday, Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper received an award named for Woodrow Wilson, the American President who confessed, “I have unwittingly ruined my country.”
The “Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service” is in the tradition of the “Jeffrey Dahmer Medal for Better Human Relations.” It reminds me of the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize won by Henry Kissinger.
Previous recipients include James Baker, Dick Cheney and the much hated Brian Mulroney. At the dinner, George W. Bush lauded Mr. Harper (via video) for his “leadership” in the war on terror and ended by saying “God bless Steve.”
Harper is following in the footsteps of Woodrow Wilson who betrayed his country in 1913 by setting up the Federal Reserve Bank, and again in 1917 by entering World War One, which was about to end in a draw. In both cases Wilson was blackmailed and manipulated. In a famous statement for posterity, Wilson confessed:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” (“Repeal the Federal Reserve Banks” by Casimir Frank Gierut, p.31)
Similarly Harper, obedient to the bankers, flouts Canadian public opinion on three fronts.
1. Canadians are at least 3-2 against participation in the Afghanistan War. Yet on Thursday, Harper called it the “price of Canada’s leadership.” Evidently it is the price of good relations with the occupational government of Canada’s largest trading partner. And like Americans, Canadians don’t have a choice. The Liberal opposition party is also in favor of this immoral no-win war.
2. After Israel leveled Lebanon, killing 1100 civilians in retaliation for the capture of two soldiers, Harper described Israel’s reaction as “measured.” His poll numbers immediately plummeted, especially in Quebec. Seventy per cent of Canadians wanted to stay neutral. Ignoring the public reaction, Harper’s Conservative party had the chutzpah to launch a fund-raising drive predicated on his “principled stand.” Surely the bankers are paying them enough already.
3. Harper’s government is taking steps to integrate Canada into a North American Union, without publicity or democratic process. Clearly this is an act of treason. This subject, like concentration camps in America, is so painful that I postpone examining it. I feel like a Jew in Nazi Germany except this time anybody who believes in real democracy, freedom and God, is a Jew.
On the domestic side, Harper’s government appears to be competent, decreasing the promotion of homosexuality and feminism, and government waste and corruption in general.
But in terms of foreign policy, Harper’s award is well suited. “Public Service” consists in following the central banker scheme for world degradation and dictatorship. Perhaps some day when Canada has disappeared as a nation altogether, there will be an award for patriotic service called “The Steve.”
