"Vive la Difference!"
HAIKU, MAUI, July 2 - Immediately after the
"Ugly Face of Globalism" piece was published at the Truth in Media web site,
we started to get reactions from various people around the world. The
feedback was quite interesting because of its diversity. So "vive la
difference," as the French say. But first, here's an update to our
original Toronto story...
CANADA: Did Toronto
Police Brass Cuff, Muzzle Their Own Officers?
TORONTO, July 1 - Here's an update to our
original Toronto story. It appears the orders to stand down and let
the black-hooded goons do their dirty work in the streets of Toronto came
from the top - the police brass cuffed and muzzled their own officers.
A Toronto Sun columnist, Joe Warmington, writes that several frontline
officers had told him they were ordered not to get involved.
Surprise, surprise... right, given that all
three levels of Canadian governments cow-towed before the G20 "aristocrats"
like a bunch of poodles.
"It was awful," one officer told Warmington.
"There were guys with equipment to do the job, all standing around looking
at each other in disbelief."
Here's a link to the full story...

Warmington: Cops had hands 'cuffed
Let's hope that there is a public inquiry and
that, when the full truth emerges from it, real culprits end up behind bars.
And now, here's a sampling of letters we have
Protesters Have No Right to Disrupt My Life
June 30 - We received the first reaction from Belgrade, the capital of
Serbia, and the site of many protests in the past, and it seems now, too:
You are beginning to sound like Bianca Jagger
writing against brutal Serbs raping poor innocent women in Bosnia by
Living in a city paralyzed at least once a week by
some protestors who feel it is their right to stop mothers from
getting home after work to feed their children in order to bring to
the media's attention their plight or right or just an opinion, I
can fully sympathize with your angry Canadian friend. He probably,
like myself, does not care who the protestors are, what they are
protesting against (or for) and whether they are tools of
instigation by a corrupt government or people with genuine
grievances. He just wants to move on.
To paraphrase Darwin, people that will survive and
thrive are not the strongest, the smartest, the most moral, but
those that best adopt to change. Protestors are those who cannot
adopt or do not want to.
In the late 1800's in France villagers tore up
railroad tracks believing the railway is responsible for the
phylloxera outbreak that destroyed their vineyards. Earlier Ludits
threw their wooden clogs into the gears of the machines to force the
return to manual manufacturing. Today people are more sophisticated
and better informed, so they protest against GM crops and free
movement of capital and labor. They have as much chance to succeed
as Ludits had. Should vast majority of people who adopt to change
rather than resist it allow the minority to terrorize them? I can
tell you that in Belgrade people no longer do. Last week angry
drivers got out their tyre irons and some 20 protestors sitting on
the main boulevard in front of the Parliament and blocking miles and
miles of rush hour traffic suddenly decided that sidewalk is just as
good a place to express their democratic rights. I would rather have
police in armor disperse the demonstrators than citizens themselves.
Having citizens turn against each other is ugly and always ends
badly for everyone.
Those protestors have an option to field their
candidate in the elections, to disseminate his message, to vote, to
write petitions and organize referendum. Disrupting my life because
they don't like current policies is not one of the options I can

CANADA: Why Did Police
Ignore "Black Thugs?" - a Valid Question
June 30 - We received the following comment from a Canadian friend in
By changing your
position from: "I now have unequivocal photographic proof that those
thugs wearing black masks and smashing windows and setting cars on
fire were in fact undercover police."
To: "Of course, what happened in Quebec is no proof
that the same thing occurred on Toronto streets on Saturday."
... you have avoided
trashing your own credibility as a serious geopolitical observer,
and gone on to write a thought and action provoking article.
Why the handful of
‘black thugs’ were seemingly ignored by thousands of nearby police
is a very valid important question.
Your and Boyd Erman’s
wrap-up (below) is a pretty good summary of my position: the G20 as
it was done was an abuse of power by our federal & provincial
I expect they will
confirm that in elections.

To which this writer replied - BEFORE seeing the
Warmington column above:
HAWAII: "If You Don't
Take Care of Your Rights, They Will Go Away"
Thanks for your feedback, as always. You'd make a good
lawyer. But so would I, I have been told many times.
However, proof is in the eyes of a beholder. What was good enough for
me was evidently not proof enough for you. Fine. That's why we have 12
people on juries so they can debate the finer points of law and logic.
But we are not dealing with lawyers here. Nor juries.
We are dealing with hooligans of the highest order. And no, I am not
speaking of the black-hooded thugs. I am talking about the new global
"aristocrats", the so-called New World Order (NWO), which Bush Sr.
announced in Sep 1990. They are trying to commit grand larceny by
robbing us of our rights and freedom, and the countries of their
sovereignty. That's why I told you in my previous email that there were
larger issues at play here than just the possible undercover police
work. That, I will leave the civil libertarians and lawyers of Canada
to deal with.
The main point and thrust of my article was to elevate
our point of view from the street level to a higher global perspective.
As I had been doing nearly full-time for 12 years since founding the Truth
in Media in 1990, I
wanted to alert and enlighten the reader to what's really going on; that
almost nothing is ever what it seems when it comes to such spineless
people. I wanted to the reader to consider his/her rights are a
precious and perishable commodity. As one of the TiM readers put it a
long time ago, "if you don't take care of them, your rights will go
The Toronto events this weekend have shown again that
just because people have the rights written on paper, there is no
guarantee they will keep them Unless they are willing to protect them
and fight for them.
That's a lesson I learned a very long time ago, when I
was a young student "revolutionary" taking part in the first-ever
anticommunist government uprising in Belgrade in June 1968. Fearing that
the Belgrade police would not shoot their sons and daughters, president
Tito, the communist dictator, had brought in thousands of heavily armed
police and troops from the provinces. We, the students, faced them with
just bare arms, but also with something more potent: a deep sense of
righteousness and a resolve not to give up.
In the end, after a 12-day stand-off, Tito backed down.
We "won." My fellow-student revolutionaries sang and danced a victory
dance in Belgrade's main square. And I sat at home, watched them on TV,
and wept. Because I knew that ours was a Pyrrhic victory; that, after we
go home, Tito would try to pick us off one at a time. So I left the
country - illegally and forever.
The point of the story? I hope that the Canadian civil libertarians
and all people who feel they were abused and stripped of their rights
this weekend don't let up. If they wait till the next election, the
real hooligans - the government leaders who abused the people's rights -
will get away with it. Just like the black-hooded thugs, they will shed
their clothes and blend into the crowd. So that the next column of
elected officials, who are also willing to sell out their souls and
their people to the NWO interests, can continue their dirty work.
The Same Thing Happened in Paris
June 30 - Here's another letter from France, from the wife of that senior
Thanks for your input. I am not surprised at all! A few
years ago I attended a demonstration in Paris. My group (the socialist
party) was waiting patiently because traditionally unions walk before
political parties. For three hours, the police were around but
incredibly disappeared just before the group of black rioters
arrived.... It suited the government to say that the demonstrators were
violent, whereas over a million people had demonstrated perfectly
peacefully, old and young, even babies among them.

To which this writer replied:
Thanks for sharing that, M-C. That's what I have been trying to tell
my Canadian friends - that what happened this weekend in Toronto was
neither unique nor extraordinary - typical NWO behavior.
