Something Missing from the Duffy Trial So Far

I wrote this blog back in Oct. 30th, 2013 about the Duffy controversy, and I am re-posting it because the issue still hasn’t been discussed in the news; it is a point that still hasn’t come out. I hope you enjoy the view point.

Harper and $13 Thousand Dollars of Credibility Duffy’s assertion that he actually received a second cheque has caused Stephan Harper a problem that the Prime Minister (PM) hadn’t anticipated. If Duffy has received a second cheque, and it can be proven by him, it sets off a scenario that will the PM will have great difficulty in explaining and his image and/or trust of him will be near impossible to recover from.

If Mike Duffy has recieved a second cheque the question arises did Stephan Harper know about it or not? If he knew about it, his act of ignorance makes him a liar, but if he didn’t know about the additional cheque it launches him into the stage of incompetence. Even if Stephan Harper wasn’t aware of the doings of his office’s chief of staff, Nigel Wright, surely, when the knowledge of the $90,000 cheque hit the media it would have provoked the Prime Minister to sit down his staff and ask what the heck was going on. Surely his staff would have been forthcoming and told him all the details of their dealings with Mike Duffy including the cheque for $13,000. This disclosure would put the PM into the liar camp.


The other scenario does not put the Prime Minister in any better light. If at the time of the $90,000 cheque coming forward, Stephan Harper did not sit his staff down it shows a gross incompetence on the part of the PM that will destroy any credibility of him as a competent manager of the Country. If Harper cannot manage the affairs of his own office, how then can he be capable of running the complexity of all of Canada?

My own view is that Harper is way too much a control freak to not have control in his office.

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen

  1. We have 2 parties in our government that keeps bleeding us dry. The Liberal and Conservative these 2 parties have to be exterminated, and start a new party, for the people, fire all senators, no expense account for politicians, ( they have to buy own house, pay own rent, buy own meals) and no pension till 20 years service. They are making enough wages to live on and vacation on. 2 weeks vacation not 2 months. That’s how everything gets back logged. Also we must raise minimum wages to meet cost of living. That way everyone will want to work for the extra money.

      My regards to Jack Anbridge, those are all very good and sensible suggestions. I agree with keeping the Senate, but add accountabilty to them. I like you recognize that the 2 main parties are the problem. The Consevatives and the Liberals have been the servants of the 1%, that is how Free Trade / Globalism has become the reality in the World. The fact that it happened in Canada, in concert with the rest of the World tells me that the 1% are in charge of the World.
