All of You Should Be Quite Ready for Tomorrow…..Mr. Morton…That Means You, AND the Premier…..
I spent the weekend trying to decompress from the previous week.
It didn’t work.
On Friday I received three separate calls from three very well-known members of the mainstream press in BC. Every one of them was appalled. They were still foaming at the mouth about a release sent out by the Premier’s favorite bubble gum girl, Sara the Chew, who proceeded to compile–completely out of context, several comments I’ve made on this blog about the Premier.
You see, in the Premier’s twisted world, when you can’t argue against a man’s word, you need to make it up as you’re going along. The problem being, is that during a press conference the day after I released David Basi’s shocking memo–wherein he fingers the Premier as a serial leaker of Cabinet level BC Rail intel to Erik Bornmann, and while Christy was still Deputy Premier, the Premier referred to me as “a liar.” This, of course, is actionable. Attacking me, apparently–and on a very personal level, will become job one. There will be no limits to the smear job.
Clark had a former CRTC-related pal, somehow get the attention of Corus/CKNW’s lawyers. They tried to intimidate CKNW into not having me on again with some drivel about content or endorsing all my work, etc. Pure nonsense. You see, after I appeared on the Jon McComb Show last week, and the Basi memo was also extensively covered by Simi Sara, this caused the Premier to go off like a rocket on one of her infamous tirades.
But they got nowhere, because CKNW will not be intimidated by Christy Clark.
On Twitter, the following two messages appeared on the account streams of two WELL-KNOWN Christy Clark leadership campaign workers (messages, which have now been removed):
“Alex the Greek is distraught since his wife left him. Would you want to wake up to that pig?”
“Tsakumis is full of it again with regards to Christy. He’s never been the same after his daughter’s bad ticker. Tsakumis’s a total mess and no one believes him.”
Now, apart from the fact that I’m Canadian and still married, it’s true, my youngest child, a daughter, was born with congenital heart disease. I’ve written about it extensively for the purpose of wishing no other parents would have to go through what Maryanna and I did, at least not without some comfort in knowing that a support group exists at Children’s Hospital and what a great group the Children’s Heart Action Network is. I’ve never once said otherwise, not that it hasn’t devastated and depressed me in the past. 1 in 99 sets of parents knows this pain, and we all work through it.
Think about what kind of an ASSHOLE, drags a man’s wife and child into the political realm. Imagine what kind of completely classless harridan (yes, Wrigley Sara, that means you) would take someone’s words totally out of context and pretext that as a reason for legitimate documents not to be believed. After all, Sara the Gummer, tells us that the documents “previously released” show that Christy Clark is indeed, “exonerated.”
Well, you’re going to see some of those very same documents tomorrow.
Although, I hear I’m in good company in being attacked by these dimwits.
Recently, at the annual convention of broadcasters of this province, the fools organizing that convention had the lack of judgment to invite Christy as their keynote speaker.
And she didn’t fail to disappoint. After some perfunctory fumbling (as is her trademark) Christy explained that she needed “your help” to get re-elected (meaning: the broadcasters need fall in line pronto.) And in case there was any confusion about what she demanded, Christy then proceeded to tear a strip off “problem” reporters, most notably, Global’s Jas Johal.
This, she claimed, was the reason for her bad polling.
Think about this: The Premier of the province was invited to speak to people who are responsible to cover her (I know, that’s bad enough). She rips them a new one and further rips into, arguably, the top reporter in the province–whose accomplishments include, in short order,too, an international portfolio of appearances on some of the most dangerous terrain on earth; including Arab battlefields a seasoned soldier would dread.
And only TWO of the broadcasting representatives walked out in protest (one, was the source for this bit of news).
But now, all is well. She’s hired Mike Morton, of BC Rail fame, who also stick-handled that file for Gordon Campbell while he was Premier.
Well, I’m being unfair.
Nothing’s well. Not after today. You see, I’ve compiled a list of documents I’d like you to look at over the next few days. Documents that are publicly “available”, but some in the media told you that they showed Christy Clark’s “innocence.”
Well, they lied. Thoroughly.
And others in the press have had them sitting around and didn’t lift a finger to go through them. That’s where your media is at.
I read almost 4,000 pages over the weekend–and I’m going to let YOU have a look. You be the judge. After all, consistent with what I have claimed all along, the Basi-Virk documents belong to you.
All of them.
Um, Mr. Morton doesn’t think so. I’ll explain that first tomorrow. And then I’ll hit you with the triple whammy of documents that will leave you wanting to storm the Premier’s Office with pitchforks.
And certain media outlets with just as much ferociousness. Lying to the public isn’t EVER acceptable.
Anyway, no more riddles. Sleep well, and be quite prepared tomorrow, some time in the morning, to read of a case of possible obstruction of justice, and when there is a JUDICIAL inquiry (after seeing more documents, I’m convinced of it), that there shouldn’t also be an investigation into the RCMP investigation that led to charges against ONLY David Basi and Bob Virk. If the RCMP ignore evidence as they did when investigating this case, then they deserve every bit of criticism. Absolutely shameful.
So, Premier, enjoy the Interior, and the BBQ circuit–for at least one more night. And Mr. Morton, remember who drew first blood…you claim no one cares about a ten year old story. And you had the gall to go onto Sean Leslie’s show and pretend that the BC Rail matter is just a past myth? YOU OF ALL PEOPLE?
Does Room 088A mean anything? Remember?
We should ignore a ten year old scandal that’s never gone away??? That’s why you keep raising Adrian Dix’s memo and the fast ferries? Both of which were NOTHING compared to what you know happened with respect to BC Rail?
Good luck with that, Mike.
The Clarkite morons on twitter can attack me all they like.
But they cannot drag my wife into it and expect that I won’t retaliate, with a vengeance. I do what I do for the public’s benefit–for their right to know.
But one of yours mentioned my kid, Christy, and that’s unforgivable. You see, I’m not like you. I don’t use my kids as props. They’re off limits. Your pal should have NEVER mentioned my little girl.
Get it, Premier?
Because the only way I’ll stop now, is if you call for a judicial inquiry. I don’t want you to resign, Premier. I want you to stay right where you are.
I’m a liar? Okay, let’s see who the real liar is.
Until you call an inquiry, I’m going to punish you. You and any of your staff or supporters that pull the kind of disgraceful stunts like last week’s array of evil.
You think having a kid with heart disease is something to poke fun at?
I’m going to punish you without pause–mercilessly.
I won’t even sit between rounds.
You wanted some more quotes, Sara.
Better now that your derriere, as well, is in the crosshairs?
Let’s see how you and your pals feel by the end of this week.
For the rest of you…
