Posted onJanuary 22, 2017|Comments Off on 1 Trump supporter vs. 400 feminists at Women’s (anti-Trump) March, London, Ontario
UPDATED: On January 21/17 I took an official Trump/Pence lawn sign to the London, Ontario version of the ‘Women’s March’ and stood across the street from 400 feminists. The sign was the last of 4 I picked up at a GOP office in Detroit, 3 of which were stolen off my front lawn on Nov 8 by a tolerant liberal.
My goal was to create media opportunites to expose the hypocrisy of the left’s criticism of Trump while completely ignoring Clinton’s acceptance of money from countries like Saudi Arabia that treat women like dogs.
Success! I did 4 interviews by London radio, newspaper and TV reporters. In addition to the usual name calling, one of the more tolerant, liberal feminists actually grabbed and stole my sign during his TV interview! So, not only did I expose the hypocrisy of the left, I exposed their intimidation tactics that no true conservative would use.
The lesson: Just one person can make a difference. You don’t have to have hundreds or even dozens of people to take on the alt-left haters. Just do something. Whatever you can afford to do with what you have. Let us be silent no longer! Continue reading →
Canada’s national, taxpayer-funded broadcaster used my/our money to produce a disgusting, hate-inciting video mocking and taunting white people as Nazis, and celebrating the day when there will be none of us left because the country will be ‘beige.’ Watch this piece of filth, read my letter to my MP, the CBC Ombudsman and Conservative Opposition leaders, then send your own thoughts:
CBC ‘Comedy YouTube Channel, Nov 30/16: Wake-up call for the alt-right: a beige horizon is inevitable | 22 Minutes [VIDEO, 2:02]

I have been made aware of a racist, hateful video produced by CBC ‘Comedy’ that incites hate against white people by mocking us as white supremacists and Nazis, and praising the day when there are no more white people once society is all ‘beige.’ This video is on the ‘CBC Comedy’ YouTube channel and was published Nov 30/16. It is entitled, Wake-up call for the alt-right: a beige horizon is inevitable | 22 Minutes:
Try to imagine CBC getting a bunch of white people together to insult and mock black people and celebrate the day in the future when they will no longer exist. Can you imagine the reaction that such a repugnant video would incite!
I realize that it is quite in fashion to call every conservative who disagrees with a liberal person a ‘white supremacist,’ and to falsely accuse people with white skin of being ‘privileged’ (I’d like to know where my White Privilege bonus cheque is, frankly), but this trash mocking and taunting people with white skin is being produced with MY tax dollars by the country’s broadcaster.

This story may be ‘fake news,’ but I heard it from a guy who I think got it from his cousin’s uncle’s sister’s hairdresser, so if meets New York Times’ standards, it’s good enough for me.
Canadian Border Problems, by anonymous
The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week. The Republican presidential election is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution.
Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, liberal arts majors, global-warming activists, and “green” energy proponents crossing their fields at night.
“I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,” said southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. “He was cold, exhausted and hungry, and begged me for a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn’t have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?”
In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields, but they just stuck their fingers in their ears and kept coming. Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals just south of the border, pack them into electric cars, and drive them across the border, where they are simply left to fend for themselves after the battery dies. “A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions,” an Alberta border patrolman said. “I found one carload without a single bottle of Perrier water, or any gemelli with shrimp and arugula. All they had was a nice little Napa Valley cabernet and some kale chips.

Close your eyes and imagine that Trump lost the election, and now I’m in the street protesting against a democratic election with a bunch of others who have spent the past few days tearing apart neighbourhoods. Imagine I’m holding up a big sign that says ‘RAPE CHELSEA!’ Imagine that while I’m holding up that sign no one tells me to stop being so disgusting. Imagine that no one tries to takes the sign from me.
Posted onNovember 12, 2016|Comments Off on A Canadian Perspective on President Elect Trump and ‘THE LIARS FORMERLY KNOWN AS JOURNALISTS’
UPDATE: As if on cue, one day after first publishing a version of this story on Facebook, Canada’s National Post has teamed up with the Washington Post (check out the byline in the NP story linked to below) to smear Donald Trump and his supporters as KKK white supremacists on Remembrance Day:
Dear NP/WP: I’m a Trump supporter, and I’m also a (Canadian) veteran, as are hundreds of thousands of others so…many thanks to you biased hacks for your filthy accusation of being white supremacists on ‘our’ day. Much appreciated because it proves what we’ve been saying from day one: Mainstream Media have abandoned all pretence at telling truths.
Don’t tell me you were just ‘reporting a story’: your goal was to get ‘Trump’ and ‘KKK’ into a headline to link the two where was no link. Been there, been victimized by that before, so I know your sleazy tactics. (It took 4 separate lawsuits from four of us to get an apology and two 1000 word op-eds in two editions of the Six Nations’ Tekawanake News for doing something very similar to us.)
For readers tempted to believe the attempts by these two ‘news’ outlets to link Trump and the KKK, you should know–as the writers of the piece undoubtedly do, too–that the KKK was a ‘Democratic’ Party creation, the same party that fought bitterly against the new abolitionist Republican Party created to end slavery. I highly recommend you either watch Dinesh D’Souza’s stunning documentary, Hillary’s America or review the extensive evidence found on his website:
Again, I thank the National Post and Washington Post for showing just how low liberal ‘reporting’ can go: lower than rats eating garbage at the bottom of a landfill. And you wonder why we hate you. Well, let me tell you just how much…
A Canadian Perspective on President Elect Trump and THE ‘LIARS FORMERLY KNOWN AS JOURNALISTS’
I said from the beginning that Trump’s greatest contribution to freedom may well be the forcing of today’s lying, racist, elitist, bigoted, liberal, colluding hacks masking as ‘reporters’ to once again embrace the noble profession of ‘journalism.’ And I was right. The ‘mainstream’ media’s greatest gift to us during the past year has been the pleasure of watching them destroy much of their dwindling credibility in spectacular fashion. Heck, the idiots at Newsweek even had a commemorative issue for Clinton’s ‘win’ printed and distributed in advance. Really.
For a year I listened to our lying Canadian media who obviously got their lies from American lying media. I can’t recall a single time when I heard a positive story about Trump. Canadian media simply repeated the discredited and biased stories from their lying American counterparts. I doubt that even one of them had actually listened to any of Trump’s speeches such as the one he gave before members of a black Detroit church honoured him by placing a very special Jewish prayer shawl on his shoulders:
Or the moving call to justice and action given by the Republican V.P. of the MLK (Martin Luther King Jr.) Society at a Texas rally for Trump:
Even the usually even-keeled and fair Andy Oudman on AM1290 London (Ontario, Canada) suffered from TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). It was sad to listen to him tell how every day he got up and watched the CNN liars who colluded with the most evil candidate in US presidential history so he would know what to tell us. Well, of course, he didn’t tell us the collusion part…because he didn’t know that part because he was trusting THE LIARS FORMERLY KNOWN AS JOURNALISTS. And he, of all people, should know better. That was Andy’s source: liars proven by WikiLeaks to be in the bag for another liar and crook who got 4 brave people killed in Libya because she wouldn’t protect them before, during or after the slaughter: despicably lying to the families of the dead. That was Andy’s source, and it was bloody sad, bloody frustrating, and bloody scary because I was raised to believe that journalists were the ‘watchdogs’ of democracy.’ Watchdogs? Lapdogs…with very, very few exceptions like Sean Hannity of Fox News in the U.S. and Rebel Media in Canada.
PLUS…4 other scientists – including a co-founder of GreenPeace – who reject the theory of catastrophic, human-caused global warming. And…a supporting petition signed by over 31,000 US scientists! Yes, there’s a ‘consensus all right; it’s just not the one the media tell you about.
Posted onNovember 28, 2014|Comments Off on Dr. Don Easterbrook to Washington Climate Change committee: the testimony every legislator needs to hear before voting on climate issues
CO2 makes up only .036% of the atmosphere. As Dr. Easterbrook points out, an 8/1000th of 1% increase in CO2 is next to nothing and, in addition to other reasons, cannot be responsible for global warming or climate changes. Created by David Strutt, DStruttPhotography.com. CLICK TO ENLARGE IN NEW WINDOW.
UPDATE April 2018 – Watch Should We Celebrate Carbon Dioxide? by former Greenpeace leader Dr. Patrick Moore (Expert #3 below) and you’ll know more than 99% of the population about how climate works and why the hysteria about CO2 is completely unjustified because it is, in terms of world history, shockingly low.
———————————- I’ve never written about the climate change debate because I never knew quite what to believe, although I did have my doubts about the hysterical man-made climate doomsday scenarios that are getting more strident by the day.
Enter my good friend David Strutt who recently started a campaign to convince Ontario Liberal MPPs that a carbon tax was a very bad idea. He cc’d his friends when sending the politicians the seminal video below of geologist/climate expert Dr. Don Easterbrook testifying March 26/13 at a ‘Climate Change’ session held by the Washington State Senate Energy, Environment & Telecommunications Committee.
This is testimony that every legislator in the world needs to see before voting on climate issues. It is 90 minutes of pure revelation and nuanced discourse by a calm, rational scientist with 50 years of experience, logic and facts on his side.
One of the shocking truths Dr. Easterbrook points out is that there is indeed a scientific consensus about man-made global warming, but not the one you hear about in the media and from climate extremists…far from it: in fact, over 31,000 American scientists have signed a petition declaring their opposition to the hypothesis of man-made global warming.
Watch the videos of Dr. Easterbrook and 4 other doctoral-level climate experts (including a co-founder of Greenpeace, and a NASA scientist), then judge for yourself.

A good question…
Another friend who ran as a candidate during the last provincial election was invited to speak to students where he was asked what he thought about global warming. Rather than get into a complicated debate on the facts and figures, he appealed to their own sense of logic with a thought-provoking and revealing question:
10,000 years ago our area (south-western Ontario) was covered by a glacier. Given that there were no man-made sources of CO2 at the time, what made it melt?
It was a long time coming, but Haldimand Council has announced that it will finally do something to reclaim the Caledonia occupation site–the Douglas Creek Estates subdivision–where so many of us volunteered to be repeatedly arrested for ‘trespassing’ and/or ‘breaching the peace’ simply for trying to walk on the public county-owned roads through the site which have been blocked by native militants since 2006:
CALEDONIA – Haldimand County Council has voted to dismantle a blockage set up by protesters at the entrance of the former Douglas Creek Estates.
Mayor Ken Hewitt said the vote happened in camera Monday night. The county will be hiring a contractor to take apart the barrier – fashioned with metal, concrete and other materials – at Surrey Street in Caledonia.
For those wondering about Haldimand council’s sudden discovery of spinal strength, it may help to tell the backstory of which the Spectator was unaware:
Gary & Christine McHale, entrance to Douglas Creek Estates, April 21/10
Gary McHale recently sent a notice to Haldimand councillors announcing he intended to organize pickets at their homes to dramatize their ongoing failure to enforce the law, a prospect that enraged at least one councillor.
Meanwhile, his wife Christine sent a letter to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne advising her of the crimes being committed by the occupiers from provincially-owned land (some is owned by Ontario, some by Haldimand County) and of the safety risks inherent in allowing native occupiers to remain in the one house still standing:
You should be concerned about the issue of safety of both native and non-native people. With Surrey Street totally blocked off, this prevents emergency vehicles vehicles such as fire trucks, ambulances and police vehicles from being able to drive down Surrey Street in case of an emergency.” –Christine McHale, June 14/14 letter to Premier Wynne
In truth, the McHales didn’t get council to act because of two letters any more than Gary McHale shut down the Enbridge occupation with one letter: the solutions came as a result of a few letters backed by 8 years of powerful, effective activism by people who say what they mean and mean what they say.
It explains how we applied Ethical Lawfare and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s methods in today’s environment of cowardly governments that would rather violate the rights of the innocent than uphold the rule of law against the guilty.
What happens next?
Will the natives turn violent again? Will the crisis flare up over an attempt to clean the property and open public roads to the public?
Posted onOctober 9, 2013|Comments Off on If Michael Moore Had a Good Twin: A Review of Gary McHale’s Victory In The No-Go Zone
“Victory In The No-Go Zone is an astounding book.”
Janice Fiamengo, a University of Ottawa English professor who is also the editor of the Freedom Press Canada Journal, has written an in-depth review of Gary McHale’s upcoming book, Victory In The No-Go Zone: Winning The Fight Against Two-Tier Policing. The concluding paragraph reads:
Victory in the No-Go Zone is an astounding book. The accumulated evidence of police corruption and of the triumph of victim ideology over effective or just law enforcement is often staggering. One can hardly believe this is Canada. McHale tells the story with just the right mix of anger, insouciance, and righteous passion. He is brilliant in his analysis, a la Martin Luther King Jr., of the inverse logic that tars men as racist bigots when they call for equal treatment, and blames innocent citizens for “inciting” violence through peaceful demonstrations. His character as a man of God, and as someone who has thought through his own principles and convictions and believes in himself whatever the whole world tells him, colours every page and makes his book an inspiring document of perseverance and integrity. It should be read by all concerned Canadians, not only as a civic duty but also as a warning and a preparation for what we may all face in the future.
2. You can pre-order a signed copy of Victory In The No-Go Zonehere.
3. You can get a free signed copy of Victory In The No-Go Zone by attending the 2013 Freedom Symposium at the Old Mill Inn, Toronto where the book will be launched. $75, lunch included. VoiceofCanada editor Mark Vandermaas will be speaking as well as Gary McHale and other authors/thinkers.
You’ve read about the agony of Caledonia’s victims in Helpless at the hands of the Ontario Provincial Police and their two-tier policing of Native militants; now read the story about the small group of Canadian patriots who followed Dr. King’s teachings in order to defend freedom and, in the process, showed Canadians how to fight back…and win.
If you want to stop police appeasement of violent radicals in Canada, and prevent European-style Islamic ‘no-go zones’ from arriving here tomorrow, you should read this book.
Freedom Press Canada: Registration form for the 2nd Freedom Symposium, Nov 9/13. Guarantee your seat by registering today.
About Victory In The No-Go Zone (from the rear cover)
In Caledonia, thousands of families lived in fear because ‘Public Safety’ became a mere political buzz word while the full resources of the state were used to silence victims’ voices. This book exposes the corruption of race-based policing while demonstrating how average citizens can take back control when the system fails.
You are invited…
Victory In The No-Go Zone will be released at the Freedom Press Canada 2013 Freedom Symposium, “Freedom in Canada: Tribute or Eulogy?” on November 9th at the Old Mill Inn in Toronto. Both Gary and Mark Vandermaas, founder of the Caledonia Victims Project, will be speaking alongside other freedom advocates/authors/thinkers. Cost is $75 and includes a buffet lunch and a copy of Gary’s book.
Posted onJune 26, 2013|Comments Off on Gary McHale & CANACE shut down Enbridge pipeline occupation w/one letter to Hamilton Police
Gary & Christine McHale stand on steps of Hamilton courthouse April 21/10 after the Crown ended its 30-month prosecution of him for ‘Counselling Mischief Not Committed.’ The charge was dropped during the Preliminary Hearing after McHale convinced another court to issue charges of Obstructing Justice against 2 senior officers involved in his case: now-Commissioner Chris Lewis and Superintendent Ron Gentle.
UPDATE, June 26/13: SUN News’ Brian Lilley praises Gary McHale for taking action. Video below.
Step 1: Gary McHale letter to Hamilton Police promising that he and his supporters would gather evidence and lay charges using Canada’s Private Prosecution provisions in the Criminal Code, including against police officers who might obstruct the gathering of that evidence:
“Starting next week we will, without notice, appear at the illegal occupation in order to video tape criminal behaviour, which includes mischief, and then file private prosecution charges against the protesters. Apparently these protesters believe they can block people from videotaping them – this, of course, is mischief as ruled by the courts.
“If your officers attempt to interfere in the gathering of evidence they too could be arrested and prosecuted on a charge of obstructing justice. Police cannot aid in criminal behaviour and they cannot interfere with the justice system.
At the bare minimum it is our goal to expose any police force that allows a two tier justice system to be institutionalized. Your department has forced a company to get an injunction solely because you decided not to enforce the law.”
Gary McHale letter to Hamilton Police Chief Glenn De Caire, June 26/13: Illegal Occupation of Enbridge Line #9 Pipeline [PDF]
Step 2: Hamilton Police enforce the law:
“The move [to arrest the protesters] by Hamilton police comes mere hours after an overnight email to Police Chief Glenn DeCaire from Gary McHale. McHale, a rights activist who played a major role in the Caledonia land claim dispute, criticizing Ontario Provincial Police for their lack of action, told DeCaire in the email that he and his supporters would converge on the Enbridge compound to monitor the behaviour of the protesters and the damage they may have caused. “
Why Hamilton Police were right to take McHale’s promise seriously
Gary McHale and CANACE members have successfully convinced various courts to issue criminal charges against former OPP Commissioner Fantino, now-Commissioner Lewis, Superintendent Gentle, as well as two officers who were filmed helping native occupiers build a fence to keep the owner out of his own property in Hagersville.

After nearly seven years of fighting against incredible odds to confront the Ontario government’s illegal ‘peacekeeping‘ mission in Caledonia alongside Gary McHale, I am so very pleased that the Canadian Taxpayers Federation will award Gary the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in honour of his dedication to that struggle:

Said Troy Lanigan, President of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation about honouring McHale with the medal:
“The more we thought about it, the more we saw that people who should be recognized wouldn’t be recognized,” he said. “These are the kind of people we wanted to recognize. They’ve challenged the status quo. Gary McHale fits the bill. He has fought, in our view, for the equal application of the law and the execution of court orders. He’s taken some risks and some beatings over this, both literally and figuratively.”

I am also pleased to announce that Gary will be speaking at the upcoming Israel Truth Week Conference at Victory International Church in Hamilton, March 5-6. You can watch his mesmerizing speech from last year’s conference here after he is introduced by emcee Stuart Laughton as ‘one of the most disliked men in Canada’:

My 6+ years with Gary McHale…
THE END OF THE BEGINNING! After 4 arrests & a 31 month campaign Canadians force OPP to respect their right to raise a Canadian flag in Caledonia.
In early 2007 after we were arrested together on Dec 16/06 while trying to raise a Canadian flag opposite the occupation site; during a time when former OPP Commissioner and the OPPA and the media were printing the most vile accusations against him and his followers; and knowing that York Regional Police had been in his home to respond to threats against Gary and his wife Christine from occupation militants; and knowing just how politically-incorrect our mission to end race-based policing was, I said to Gary:
“If, when this struggle is over, we’re still alive and not in jail, everything else will be a bonus, but no one is going to be pinning any medals on us.”
I’m so glad I was wrong — about the medal. Six Nations militants did try to kill Gary on Dec 02/07 when occupation ringleader Clyde Powless jumped on his back and other cowards joined in, kicking him and screaming obscenitie while he lay on the ground. Fortunately, a quick thinking Doug Fleming tackled Powless and some badly outnumbered OPP officers hustled Gary out of the area. Despite being viciously assaulted Gary never once raised an angry voice or fist in retaliation.
For more six years I have had the honour (and, yes, the frustration sometimes), of working beside a stubborn, determined man who refused – and refuses – to give up until this province and its police force end racial policing and, once again, respect the rule of law.
UPDATED Oct 26/12 — A great Canadian patriot, naval veteran, peacekeeper, father, husband, friend of Israel and a tireless force for justice in Caledonia has been called home.
I am saddened to report that Merlyn Kinrade, Caledonia resident and co-founder of CANACE (Canadian Advocates for Charter Equality), died after a long battle with cancer at 2pm yesterday – Saturday, October 06, 2012. He was born March 16, 1935, and passed in his 77th year.
Bay Gardens Funeral Home
947 Rymal Road East, Hamilton L8W 3M2 (just east of Upper Gage Ave.)
Merlyn Kinrade lived more than 60 years of his life in Caledonia. He is a former member of the Royal Canadian Navy who served on one of the most famous ships in Canadian naval history, HMCS Haida. His service included a tour of duty in Port Said, Egypt on a United Nations peacekeeping mission during the 1956 Suez crisis.
Posted onApril 30, 2012|Comments Off on Israel loses a daughter and defender – Rose Lax of Hamilton’s Never Again Group
I am very sad to to report that Rose Lax, a passionate advocate for Israel who was the driving force behind Hamilton’s Never Again Group, passed away on the weekend. She will be interned in Jerusalem on May 01/12 at 1:30pm at Bait Hesped, Har HaMenuchot Cemetary. A Shloshim Memorial service will take place at the Adas Israel Congregation in Hamilton on Wednesday, May 30/12 at 7:30pm.
The announcement from Adas Israel describes Rose as…
“Beloved mother of Daisy, mother-in-law of Kent, grandmother of Olivia, Asher & Ben. Passionate defender of the Jewish People & Israel.”
Not long ago I finished a short, but great radio interview w/CBC radio (French) out of Toronto who wanted my perspective on today’s march through Caledonia as the founder of the Caledonia Victims Project.
They were given material by the organizers of today’s takeover of the streets of Caledonia by Tom Keefer and his anti-capitalist allies that left the impression today’s march was about ‘commemmorating’ the occupation, but I talked about the flyer delivered to Haldimand homes in which they make it clear that the purpose was not about commemoration, but because Gary McHale & company (of which I am proud to be one) decided to walk down a county road through DCE, and how they are using the circumstances of a mentally disturbed person who tried to commit suicide by driving his car into the house on DCE.
I told him that it doesn’t matter whether they’re commemorating the beginning of a reign of terror against innocent people or reacting to non-native people who dared to walk down a county road, their goal is to legitimize the use of violence against innocent people as a political tool, by denying the humanity of their victims by pretending they don’t exist, by blaming the victims for the violence against them, and by attacking those who speak out for them. I said this was the essence of a supremacist ideology and, as the son of parents who lived under Nazi occupation, I found it disgusting and despicable.
I made clear that the victims also include native people; I mentioned the two rapes of native women on DCE, and that as a former soldier/peacekeeper I have a duty to speak for them too.
Fighting for justice in the Caledonia no-go zone: Our story in our words
“McHale is that rarest of modern Canadian creatures — a man who acts on principle, lives and breathes it in fact.” — Christie Blatchford, National Post columnist and author of ‘Helpless: Caledonia’s Nightmare of Fear And Anarchy, And How The Law Failed All Of Us’; from her foreword to Gary McHale’s ‘Victory In The No-Go Zone.’
Christie Blatchford: Caledonia law = Deep South law
“…the law in Haldimand County operates as the law in America’s Deep South once worked, where there was one law for the white man, who could break it with impunity, and another for the black man. In Haldimand County, since the occupation began, there has been one law for natives and another for non-natives.“
"And Mark and Gary, thank you for making us feel like we are not alone in this and that there are other Canadians who care." Elaine, Caledonia resident
"Mark, I just want to say thanks again for your diligence and your help with our struggle here in Caledonia. Thanks also to Gary, without his web site no one would know the lengths the government and the OPP will go to appease terrorists. I don't know how much more the residents who live along the occupied zone can take. I know for myself, I feel lost with nowhere to turn, with little to no help. I do however, thank God for you and Gary. Keep up the good work." Caledonia resident
"Dear Mark: this is my first visit to your site and I absolutely love it. I’m from Caledonia and have been fighting the two tiered justice system since day one. Thank you so much for following Gary McHale’s involvement and coming to Caledonia." Beth
"There are many injustices going on in Canada at the moment, especially in First Nation Territory. They could sure use a man of your passion to give them a hand! Sincerely, Rob"
"From the bottom of my heart, I thank you and Gary and all those who are willing to put your lives on hold to fight for freedom, democracy, law and order. They are definitely worth fighting for. If only I was 20 years younger. God Bless you all !" Cora
"I have to commend you on your writing, very direct, effective and from the heart." David Hartless
"Thanks Mark, and also to you Gary. You guys rock, to stand up for us when no one else will is just great. I can’t even stand up for myself for fear of retaliation against my family." 'BeothucVSA'
