Smear tactics! Why is the City of Richmond Hill keeping a legal document secret that will exonerate mayoral candidate Carmine Perrelli?

Remove Ads

Folks, I recently had this confidential legal document anonymously dropped on my porch. It’s a whopper.

You see, it is proof indicating that the narrative that Perrelli owes the city $140,000 for the blue box/green bin program is bogus.

When it comes to the green movement forever fretting about the so-called climate crisis, you’d think that an elected politician launching a program that allows residents to exchange their broken recycling and compost bins would be a GOOD thing, right?

You know – the Three Rs – reduce, reuse, and recycle being the holy trinity of green enthusiasts.

So, why is it that Richmond Hill council ruled that one of their own councillors, Carmine Perrelli, must pay back the city $140,000 for a blue box and green bin giveaway that he coordinated during the pandemic? How odd!

Is it because Perrelli, unlike most of his colleagues on city council, leans right of centre? Thus, are his political opponents attacking him not on the merits of the program, but rather, based on the political ideology of the man behind the program?

And it gets worse: last October, Richmond Hill Mayor David West supported a bylaw that was essentially crafted to shame Perrelli.

This bylaw was circulated in the public realm and declared the false narrative that Perrelli owes the city $140,000 for the blue box/green bin program.

We know this is a false narrative because the city hired an expert external law firm to provide council with an opinion on the validity and lawfulness of the bylaw.

Here are three key conclusions:

1. “In our view, the City simply does not have the legal authority to [enact the bylaw.]”

2. “As a result, we think it is almost certain that a Court will quash the October 2021 Resolution and By-Law, they will also likely conclude that the Resolution and By-Law were passed in bad faith.”

3. “If the October By-Law is not repealed, the City will incur unnecessary costs litigating this aspect of the Application. The costs will be substantial considering the broad factual allegations. Further, when the October By-Law is quashed, a court will award Councillor Perrelli with his legal costs, possibly on a substantial indemnity basis. Thus, given the unlikelihood of success, we do not recommend litigating this issue.”

And yet, Mayor West is desperate to keep this legal opinion secret until after the election. He wants this false narrative to hang over Mr. Perrelli’s head during the election campaign. And Mayor West has no issue with the fact that Richmond Hill taxpayers will potentially be on the hook for millions of dollars in legal costs. That because it would seem to be that for Mayor West, the ends – i.e., getting re-elected – justify the means. This is certainly immoral and unethical. It might even be illegal.

We reached out to Mayor West via email and phone; he has yet to respond.

10 Secrets of Long-Living People

Laughter, Sex, Vegetables and Fish — 10 Secrets of Long-Living People is definitely a book title that is going to grab your attention. Many years ago, I was standing in a bookshop in Tasmania, trying to find my credit card so that I could invest in a book on how to live longer. It was a long-life investment!

Dr John Tickell is a medical doctor, international speaker, bestselling author, and television personality, who has spent the last four decades researching the health, well-being and longevity patterns of people around the world.

Dr John and his wife Sue have five children. Two are medical doctors, who with Dr John, have visited in total over 100 countries in our world, studying the living and eating habits of the longest-living healthiest people on earth.

If curiosity killed the cat, I would be dead nine times. Dr John Tickell impressed me, firstly because he is an Aussie; secondly, because he is a doctor; thirdly, because he has a good sense of humour and can laugh at himself; fourthly, he was rated as among the top 20 motivational speakers in the world; and fifthly, because he has five kids and is still happily married.

Watch him talk about the Stress of Success in this video:

Sometimes curiosity works for you.  In the case of Dr John Tickell’s book, this was the case for me. This book is brilliant, very real, very funny and very achievable. I encourage you to buy it. No, I beg you to buy it. Watch this video if in doubt!

I can honestly say reading this book has changed our lives. My wife and I have started to be more selective about our eating habits. We are eating more vegetables and more unrefined foods. One of Dr Tickell’s favourite quotes is from the Greek father of medicine, Hippocrates, in 400 BC: “Let thy food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Victor Lindlahr said it this way in the 1930s: “You are what you eat.”

My wife and I also have tried to eat less food. In the West, we are killing ourselves by overeating. My wife and I work hard at doing the opposite. Often at restaurants, we order a serve for one and share that serve between us two. It is cheaper too. I have taken to making my own muesli for breakfast and we have both cut back on our fast-food consumption.

My wife and I go to the gym three mornings a week between 6 a.m. – 7 a.m. My wife swims a kilometre three times a week and I do the same once per week Both of us enjoy long walks and work hard at being active. It is quite simple. If you don’t use it, you lose it!

Watch this video, which promotes the best way to live longer. You will never guess what it is!

You have to invest in yourself as a father. This goes for your health too! If you don’t lead an active, balanced, healthy lifestyle, you will have great difficulties being a father; in fact, you might drop dead without finishing the job. Living longer should be one of your main obsessions. You have to take an active interest in your health.

Dr Steven Covey, a highly acclaimed author, writes about taking time to renew yourself in the four key areas of life: physical, social, mental and spiritual. If you don’t do this, you risk getting out of balance.

Life is all about a good balance of the key ingredients. There is a saying from Proverbs: ‘A just balance is the Lord’s delight’.  Maybe we should change it to ‘a just balance in a dad is the children’s delight,’ or a ‘just balance in a husband is a wife’s delight.’

Lovework

Do yourself a favour — take some time out.  Buy a book about exercise, health, nutrition, food and fun, read it and put it into practice. If you do, you will love longer, live happier, live smarter, become a better lover, and become a better father because of all of the above.

Anyone would think that I owned shares in Crown Content, Melbourne, the publishers of Laughter, Sex, Vegetables and Fish — 10 Secrets of Long-Living People.  No, I don’t, but I do own shares in life, and so do you.

If you don’t learn, you won’t grow. If you don’t read, you won’t know. Go and buy this book. If you can find something better, buy that.

Investing in your health will change your life.  I will finish with a quote from the book by Dr John Tickell:

“Notice how so many people take themselves far too seriously? For God’s sake, lighten up a little. Try laughing. You can’t be angry when you’re laughing. You can die laughing, but you can’t get sick laughing.”

Yours for Living Longer,
Warwick Marsh

Lawsuit: Wisconsin Elections Commission Let Electors Change Votes After Submitting Ballots

Lawsuit: Wisconsin Elections Commission Let Electors Change Votes After Submitting Ballots

Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) last week over its unlawful guidance allowing absentee voters to change their votes after their ballots are cast.

In an Aug. 1, 2022, memorandum sent to all Wisconsin municipal clerks, WEC instructed that after a voter submits an absentee ballot, he can request to “spoil” that ballot and receive a new one if he changes his mind or makes a mistake. Furthermore, in an Aug. 2 memo, WEC allows clerks to “invalidate” a “spoiled ballot” on behalf of the voter.

Such guidance violates Wisconsin statute, which states that a voter possesses the exclusive authority to spoil his absentee ballot before it is submitted, not after. If the voter spoils his absentee ballot before he casts it, he must return the ballot to the clerk (who then destroys it) and request a new one. 

With WEC’s new guidance, however, a clerk may invalidate a “spoiled” ballot on behalf of the voter, thereby increasing the potential for fraud or abuse in the absentee voting process.

“RITE is working to protect Wisconsinites from unfair and unequal election procedures,” RITE’s President and CEO Derek Lyons said in a press release. “Once a vote is cast, it is cast. Period. WEC is breaking the law and courting disaster by allowing individuals to retrieve their cast ballots and alter their votes. The discretion WEC gives to local officials undermines the integrity of the ballot box and disrupts the uniform and transparent administration of elections throughout the Badger State.” 

RITE is asking the Waukesha County Circuit Court for immediate injunctive relief “prior to the start of absentee ballot voting for the November 8, 2022, election.” The election integrity group is suing on behalf of Wisconsin voter Nancy Kormanik and her right to fair and equal treatment. 

During the 2020 election, Wisconsin processed nearly 2 million absentee ballots statewide.

Maren Morris Has Zero Understanding Of Country Music Fans

Maren Morris Has Zero Understanding Of Country Music Fans

Country music singer Maren Morris has been popping up in the news quite a bit recently, and as is the case with most celebrities, the reason has zero to do with entertaining people.

Following her recent feud with Brittany Aldean, wherein the “My Church” singer attacked the wife of fellow country singer Jason Aldean for opposing the chemical and surgical mutilation of children’s bodies, Morris is making headlines yet again for saying that she may skip the upcoming Country Music Association Awards because she wouldn’t “feel comfortable going.”

“Honestly, I haven’t decided if I’m gonna go. I’m very honored that my record is nominated. But I don’t know if I feel [at] home there right now,” Morris said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “So many people I love will be in that room, and maybe I’ll make a game-time decision and go. But as of right now, I don’t feel comfortable going.”

The controversy between Morris and Aldean started after the latter posted a video reel on Instagram in late August showing herself putting on makeup with the caption, “I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girly life.”

The innocent comments evoked the ire of Morris, who in a tweet called Aldean “a scumbag human” and “Insurrection Barbie,” referencing the Aldean couple’s previously expressed support for former President Donald Trump.

Not backing down in the face of an unhinged, left-wing mob, Aldean has since doubled down on her defense of minors, saying that “[a]dvocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of love and calling it ‘gender affirming care,’ is one of the worst evils” and “children should not be allowed to make these life-changing decisions at such a young age.”

During her interview with the L.A. Times, Morris went on to defend her labeling of Aldean as “Insurrection Barbie,” claiming that the nickname is justified because the Aldeans “totally partook” in the “whole conspiracy theory peddling of Jan. 6.”

“I don’t have feelings of kindness when it comes to humans being made fun of for questioning their identity, especially kids,” she said. “The whole ‘When they go low, we go high’ thing doesn’t work with these people. Any resistance movement is not done with kind words. And there’s a lot worse things I could’ve called her.”

But the “Circles Around This Town” singer didn’t just limit her belligerent remarks to the Aldean family. Within the same interview, Morris also went out of her way to trash the country music industry as a whole, asserting that it’s “a very insidious culture of people feeling very comfortable being transphobic and homophobic and racist, and that they can wrap it in a joke and no one will ever call them out for it.”

“I hate feeling like I need to be the hall monitor of treating people like human beings in country music,” she whined, adding that it all “got worse — irreparable, almost” after Trump got elected in 2016.

“I think there are people in country music that want it to be niche,” Morris continued. “They don’t want it to expand. They don’t care about it becoming more inclusive. It’s theirs, and everyone else is an other, or woke, or whatever. That’s sad to me, because I feel like country music at its core is people’s real stories.”

Morris Can’t See Past Her Elitism

The most revealing aspect of Morris’s interview isn’t necessarily her feelings of discomfort with attending an upcoming awards show, but her slander of the country music industry and assertion that she sees herself as its “hall monitor.”

Similar to how Hollywood celebrities look down on middle America with utter disdain, Morris’s elitist mindset doesn’t allow her to comprehend how people could possibly see issues differently than she does, and ultimately, the idea that “they all must be evil” becomes the only logical explanation. Yes, the country music world encapsulates a different culture than those found in other genres and Hollywood. But it’s all for the better.

Country music is a realm filled with people who embrace traditional American values, such as a love for God and country. The human beings that fill the rows of George Strait and Miranda Lambert concerts are the same ones who would pull over on the side of the road to help you change a flat tire or ask how you’re doing when passing you on the sidewalk.

For many in the fandom, country music remains one of the last places to go to escape the secular, neo-Marxist rot plaguing so many other facets of American culture. But just like any other leftist, Morris can’t leave well enough alone.

To her, country music is simply a piece on a chessboard that needs to be ideologically conquered. In this view, it’s nothing but a backward, hillbilly-infested community that should be reprogrammed and perfected to suit the very pagan religion that convinces her chemically and surgically mutilating the bodies of minors is an act of kindness to be celebrated and encouraged.

Perhaps if Morris actually bothered to listen instead of demonize, she’d understand that many within the country music community whom she openly scorns actually sympathize with these children and pray that their parents get them the mental help they so clearly need rather than having their bodies destroyed beyond repair. But as is the case with most out-of-touch elitists, I wouldn’t hold my breath for her.

Nord Stream pipeline blown up by France?

Nord Stream pipeline blown up by France?

https://www.legitgov.org

Sabotage: The One World Government Is Destroying Energy Infrastructure and Food Supplies By 2nd Smartest Guy in the World | 27 Sept 2022 | The Cabal is doing their utmost to induce mass global food and energy insecurity, and then fold all of these schemes into their all-encompassing and perpetual post-human planetary lockdown in PSYOP-CLIMATE-CHANGE. All evidence now points to breaks in the Nord Stream pipeline being anything but accidental. A “disturbance” more a bombing has caused a massive rupture. Concurrent with PSYOP-UKRAINE-INVASION which induced this fraudulent narrative of energy scarcity in order to exacerbate PSYOP-HYPERINFLATION, there have been statistically impossible bombings, fires and other sabotage to American food processing plants (well over 100 facilities this year and growing)…

Lights out, ovens off: Europe preps for winter energy crisis | 26 Sept 2022 | As Europe heads into winter in the throes of an energy crisis [created by the WEF to hasten the arrival of the Great Reset], offices are getting chillier. Statues and historic buildings are going dark. Bakers who can’t afford to heat their ovens are talking about giving up, while fruit and vegetable growers face letting greenhouses stand idle. In poorer eastern Europe, people are stocking up on firewood, while in wealthier Germany, the wait for an energy-saving heat pump can take half a year. And businesses don’t know how much more they can cut back. The restaurants already run the grills no more than necessary and use motion detectors to turn off lights in storage, with some stores facing a 750% increase in electricity bills since the beginning of the year.

EU threatens foreign observers over Donbass referendums | 27 Sept 2022 | The EU will slap sanctions on anyone involved in referendums on joining Russia in the Donbass republics, as well as in Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, according to Peter Stano, a spokesman for the bloc’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell. “There would be consequences for all people, who participate in the illegal, illegitimate referendums,” Stano warned on Tuesday, the fifth and final day of voting. Stano did not rule out the possibility of foreign observers, including EU citizens, also facing restrictions over any support they have given to the process. He said it would be up to member states to decide who falls under the sanctions regime.

White House Warns Russia of ‘Catastrophic’ Consequences Over Nuclear Weapons | 25 Sept 2022 | White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan on Sunday issued a warning to the Kremlin following recent statements by top Russian officials regarding the possible use of nuclear weapons. “Let me say it plainly: If Russia crosses this line, there will be catastrophic consequences for Russia,” Sullivan said on NBC’s Meet the Presson Sunday. Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a directive to partially mobilize Russia’s reserve forces and suggested Moscow would use all weapons in its arsenal. Former President Dmitry Medvedev, meanwhile, issued a more explicit threat about using nukes if Russia’s territorial integrity were threatened. “This is not a bluff,” Putin said during his speech. “And those who try to blackmail us with nuclear weapons should know that the weathervane can turn and point towards them.” But if nukes are used, the United States will respond, Sullivan warned.DoD

Wouldn’t Let Troops Wait for FDA-Approved Vaccine | 27 Sept 2022 | The Pentagon considered as far back as October 2021 offering service members the option of taking the FDA-approved vaccine versus the vaccine authorized for emergency use before facing any punishment, but ultimately decided against it, paving the way for thousands to be discharged from the military, according to documents obtained by Breitbart News. A senior defense official proposed in an October 20, 2021, action memo allowing service members who did not want to take the vaccine that was under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) — known as the PfizerBioNTech COVID-19 vaccine — to wait instead for the FDA-approved vaccine — known as Comirnaty — before facing punishment for being unvaccinated… According to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) recently, some military whistleblowers have claimed that vaccine vials at a military base were mislabeled “Comirnaty,” when their lot number appears on a CDC database listing EUA vaccine lot numbers. Johnson last month sent a letter to the DoD, FDA, and CDC demanding answers.

Doctor Turns Against Messenger RNA COVID-19 Vaccines, Calls for Global Pause | 27 Sept 2022 | A doctor who promoted COVID-19 vaccines is now calling for health authorities around the world to pause the administration of two of the most-widely utilized COVID-19 vaccines, saying that the benefits from the vaccines may not outweigh the risks. “There is more than enough evidence–I would say the evidence is overwhelming–to pause the rollout of the vaccine,” Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a British cardiologist and evidence-based medicine expert, told The Epoch Times. A paper from Malhotra detailing the evidence was published on Sept. 26. Among the citations is a recent reanalysis of the Pfizer and Moderna clinical trials that concluded that vaccinated trial participants were at higher risk of serious adverse events. He called the study a “smoking gun.” Malhotra also pointed to the lack of reduction in mortality or severe disease in the trials, which were completed in 2020.

SCRUM: Michael Cooper speaks on CPC polling results and voters’ trust in Pierre Poilievre

SCRUM: Michael Cooper speaks on CPC polling results and voters’ trust in Pierre Poilievre

The Conservative Party of Canada has been polling well recently, indicating increasing support for the party under the new leadership of Pierre Poilievre. In this interview from September 26, Michael Cooper, the Conservative MP for St. Albert—Edmonton gives his take on the recent successful polling results, as well as why he believes voters should trust the CPC.

Cooper has been the member of Parliament for the same riding, located in Alberta, since 2015. Prior to making his debut in politics, he studied at the University of Alberta.

William Diaz-Berthiaume asked:

We saw in a recent survey that Pierre Poilievre is crushing the Liberals with 40% of the vote, compared to only 32% [for the Liberals], therefore why do you think that is?”

Cooper was clear on his belief that the Liberal government has disappointed Canadians, saying they are a “failed” government.

“Look at the cost of living crisis,” he stated. “That is a direct consequence of failed liberal policies.”

Cooper also touched on the fact that there are certain conservatives who feel the CPC let them down during the pandemic. “The Conservatives were consistent in [their] opposition to punitive and unscientific vaccine mandates,” he said.

Watch this report for the rest of Cooper’s thoughts on the current Canadian political landscape.

Joe Biden Accuses Vladimir Putin of Lying About ‘Deliberate Act of Sabotage’ of Nord Stream Pipelines

Joe Biden Accuses Vladimir Putin of Lying About ‘Deliberate Act of Sabotage’ of Nord Stream Pipelines

President Joe Biden delivered remarks at the White House on Friday and accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of lying about the damage that incapacitated the Nord Stream gas pipelines.

“It was a deliberate act of sabotage, and now the Russians are pumping out disinformation and lies,” Biden said.

The president finally made a statement in reaction to the pipeline after repeatedly ignoring reporters’ questions about it on Thursday.

Putin said Friday that the United States and its allies in the West sabotaged the pipeline.

“The sanctions were not enough for the Anglo-Saxons: they moved onto sabotage,” Putin said. “It is hard to believe but it is a fact that they organized the blasts on the Nord Stream international gas pipeline.”

But Biden urged Americans not to listen to Putin’s claims.

“When things calm down, we’re going to be sending divers down to find out exactly what happened. … Just don’t listen to what Putin is saying,” Biden said. “What he is saying, we know, is not true.”

The Nord Stream pipeline network provides natural gas from Russia to Germany, and both pipelines are leaking hundreds of millions of cubic meters of natural gas into the sea.

Dramatic photos and videos of churning water from the leaks demonstrate the significance of the impact on the pipelines. Both pipelines have been closed down:

Seismic monitors said they monitored explosive activity near the area where the leaks began occurring.

Day 1: Revive Us Again, O Lord


Intention

To ready our hearts to lay hold of the outpouring of God

Scripture

“Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?”
– Psalm 85:6

Reflection

All the true revivals have been born in prayer. When God’s people become so concerned about the state of religion that they lie on their faces day and night in earnest supplication, the blessing will be sure to fall.”
– E. M. Bounds

During this month, we will ask God to move powerfully in our midst. We long to see God sweep across our nation, transforming it into the promised dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. But what does true revival actually look like and how should we pray?

Evan Roberts, the young man greatly used in the Welsh Revival, spoke of four keys to revival. These are helpful as we seek personal and corporate revival in our own lives:

Firstly, sin must be confessed to God, and wrongs committed against others must be put right. Secondly, we must turn away from the past through repentance and look to establish a Godly path that embraces the future. Thirdly, there must be radical obedience to the Holy Spirit. And, finally, there must be a public confession of Christ.

These are serious times in which we live, and we must humble ourselves in prayer, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways. We must be prepared to pay a price, for revival does not come without a cost, both at the personal and corporate levels.

Unity and prayer are two key elements needed for revival. Revival will not come without a hunger and thirst after God that brings about intense prayer. Similarly, revival will not come until we realise that we need each other, so when it does come, we can present a true image of Jesus to the world.

God must prepare us — His Church — personally and corporately for the self-sacrifice that revival entails. May we not draw back but prepare to lay hold of this glorious end-time outpouring of God with all our hearts as the radiant Bride of Christ, who is willing to sacrifice all so that people might be saved.

Video

Prayer

Father God, we desire that You would move upon our nation in revival.

We acknowledge that we have not kept You at the centre of our lives, nor the life of our nation. Forgive us for that and give us the ability to turn our lives around. Let us re-focus again on who You are, on Your promises, which we have discarded for what the world has offered us.

Re-form us as Your people into Your own image and allow us to reflect Your Glory to a lost and hurting world. Revive us again, O Lord, that Your people may rejoice in You.

Amen.
