You may have received an email today from Dan Miles entitled "URGENT Help Brent". If not, see below.
Please be advised that I have no association with Dan Miles whatsoever, despite his attempts to portray himself as an agent of mine.
Dan Miles for those who probably don't know is Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's Director of Communications and a very effective spokesperson........for our cause.
That's because every time he offers up new "facts" or "explanations" for past or present activities, the government's lies and orchestrated cover-up become ever more apparent.
The truth means nothing to Dan Miles. He probably doesn't even know what the truth is. Let me provide two examples. One facile. One anything but.
Yesterday Dan Miles lamented on the fact that I must be working from "a small dark basement". I informed him that I was actually working from my cottage overlooking beautiful Lake Muskoka. Furthermore, my cottage doesn't even have a basement that is habitable. And yet in today's email we have Dan Miles proceeding with his false claim about my desperate circumstances and working from my basement. He liked that version of "reality" better, so he ran with it. But then apparently, that's his job: professional promulgator of falsehoods.
However this issue has nothing whatsoever to do with me and everything to do with tax-paying Canadians and the proper functioning of a democracy, which leads me to the less facile point
Less facile example:
Let me describe the income trust matter to you on a FACTUAL basis.
Harper made a promise. Harper broke that promise. Happens all the time with politicians, with two exceptions however:
(1) People lost $35 billion AND lost an essential savings vehicle.
$90 billion in related takeovers have ensued that have caused real tax leakage amounting to $2 billon a year. Meanwhile pension funds can exempt themselves from this tax, even though only 25% of Canadians belong to such pensions.
(2) The PREMISE for the broken promise is completely false. This is the lie part of Lie Conceal Fabricate.
Unlike global warming, tax leakage is a readily discernable and non-debatable construct. By its very nature, it is an absolute. In Flaherty's case however, it is an absolute lie.
Flaherty and his intellectually corrupt minions like Mark Carney (or is he the actual boss?) then go about fudging the tax revenue analysis and fudging the methodology to "cook up" some bogus argument for tax leakage by leaving out 38% of the taxes paid by the income trusts held in RRSPs.
Correct.....a mere 38%.
On that basis, Flaherty would never have passed his bar exams if the Bar Admissions had arbitrarily left out 38% of his marks. Perhaps we would all be better off if that had been that case, but that's not the point. The point is the government is lying to us. Dan Miles is responsible for promoting those lies of his boss. Income trusts do not cause tax leakage. The Government's fraudulent analysis causes tax leakage.
That's why Flaherty's Keystone Cops in the Department of Finance demanded that the 18 pages of blacked out documents issued under the ACCESS TO INFORMATION ACT be returned. RETURNED?. See attached letter.
How desperate and self incriminating is that? The only thing I can think of that is more desperate and self-incriminating than that, is Dan Miles' email to you of this morning.
Thanks Dan. Keep up the good work. We would be nowhere if it weren't for you. You must live by the Department of Finance credo enunciated by Brian Ernewein at the Public Hearings:
"If we were incompetent, we wouldn't admit to it"
Final word: No admissions necessary, since it's become abundantly self-evident at this point that Flaherty & Co. ARE incompetent
PS. Dan: I have three email lists. You are only on one of them. You missed the other two. Would you like me to forward your self incriminating plea to them as well? Would you mind if I posted it on the CAITI blog for maximum exposure?
PPS. Dan: Why the ongoing preoccupation with my occupation? You must understand that fighting to expose the corrupt Harper government is a full time job....and most rewarding.
PPPS. When is your party going to make good on that empty boast that "Flaherty would love to go a few rounds in a debate situation with those CAITI guys"? Simply name the time and place. Would my basement be a suitable venue?
