What's Wrong With This Picture?

Look at the photo, this is being used in an article about the 3 by-elections being called. What's wrong with this picture? Look behind PM Harper, who's sitting there? Did the Canadian Press pick this photo intentionally? This picture is the only file photo they could find? This one is obviously from when Harper was the Opposition Leader, not even the PM.



They could have used a more recent picture, like this one:



If a lowly little blogger can find an up to date picture in about 5 seconds, why can't the Canadian Press or CNEWS? It sure stinks. Why print an old file photo with Chuck Cadman sitting behind the PM? It really, really stinks!

That's not Chuck Cadman. It's his ghost.

Who cares? Everyone and his brother knows the press is in the tank for the Liberals....much like they are for Obama.
However, they only have one vote per press pass.
Screw'em...let them play their silly games

Looking closer, it says "Stephen Harper in a file photo. (CP PHOTO/Jonathan Hayward)" so I guess it's the Canadian Press, who's mandate is supposedly just report the news. Right, following your own rules I see. NOT!

and John Reynolds ....

hunter said...

Good point Jad, wasn't it John Reynolds who supposedly went to talk to Chuck?

They must have had to dig real deep to find this picture. Real sleazy. There is no other explanation, why use a picture that is years out of date?

Oh Anony haha - I see you are back and can add nothing to the discussion except your usual stupidity. It is really quite funny to watch how the MSM tries to be so subtle with their reporting but with bloggers keeping watch on them, it is easy to call them on their partisanship.

After your idiotic comments about the oil companies strip mining Alberta and leaving it for YOU to clean up, I wonder how you can even show your cyber face. It has become painfully obvious that you spout the same old crap fed to you by the environmentalists.

Maybe if you did a little reading for yourself, you wouldn't believe everything the MSM tells you - no matter how they try to pull the wool over the eyes of the left wing voters.

You know that is not what I said, you know I was describing what they would do if they could get away with it. You know that, yet you persist in misquoting. That makes you either really stupid, or a liar. Which is it?

But then, that is what is so typical of most of the right wingers these days. Misquote someone, then repeat over and over. Really it is a form of lying.

Sorry, the big lie doesn't work anymore. Everyone is on to you. Now try debating without such techniques and maybe people will listen to you.

Otherwise they will simply laugh at you.

Hahahahahahahahaha!

Great catch, Hunter.

And may I respectfully suggest that you ban anonymous comments? I'm sure the more intelligent ones would figure out how to sign in eventually.

Apologies to Hunter for hijacking this post

- The following is for Anonyhaha as he often forgets what he said in one of his many comments. I have put your statement that you said you did not make in brackets, just to make it easy for you to find.

"The oil companies really put the screws on you when the NEP came about to wrestle control of resources away from the foreign owned majors.

(They fought tooth and nail for their right to strip mine the whole place and leave all of us to clean up the mess after.)

They deliberately created hardship for you, hoping to spark a revolt. It's worked in other places when the government is deemed "unfriendly" by them. You were punished by them for the federal government trying to help us all.

The oil companies prefer weak banana republic type governments that they can buy off or threaten to get their way. They would have loved for you to separate and become just another shiekdom they could exploit."

hunter said...

Yes, Joanne, I've been thinking about that for a week or two. AnonHAHA is so anon that he/she/it lives somewhere in the waters of Hudson's Bay.

Fair warning, starting with my next post, anons are out of here!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for proving my point.

Now why do you continue to claim that I believe they are not required to clean up their mess? It seems pretty obvious, with the two surrounding paragraphs, that my statements said they were trying to make that happen, as opposed to this being what I think is the situation.

So carry on with your smear. Once hunter figures out how to disable anons, you can prattle on and continue to misrepresent my views.

By the way, I always sign my comments. You were just too stupid to see it:

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Hey jojo!
How come, in all your fuming about Fantino, and ranting about Dalton the appeaser, do you neglect to mention Dalton is 100% behind Fantino?

Hahahahahaha!

frmgrl said...

I'm glad you caught that photo Hunter. The media is not biased. Yeah, right! They don't even hide their bias anymore. I think they're starting to get a bit desperate just like the opposition and their faux scandals.
I really enjoy reading your posts, Hunter. You do an excellent job. I also enjoy commenting once in awhile and reading what other commenters have to say. But lately Anon haha, is getting a tad annoying and childish. I don't even read what anon has posted anymore. I just skip to the next sensible comment.

"It seems pretty obvious, with the two surrounding paragraphs, that my statements said they were trying to make that happen, as opposed to this being what I think is the situation"

No it doesn't. Now you are stretching the truth aonyhaha.

If you want to spread your brand of untruths, start your own blog - why spread your hate onto other's blogs.

It is painfully obvious that you do not want to debate; your mind is made up, you believe that Alberta is the source of all the pollution in this country (funny as we NEVER have smog days here) yet you turn a blind eye to the other provinces that are actually strip mining and not reclaiming the land.

So get your own blog and we can all come over there and "discuss"on your terms.

Alberta Girl said...

"I don't even read what anon has posted anymore."

But Frmgrl, you should read them; it is a fascinating glimpse into what makes the left in this country tick; they really do have a warped sense of reality; they have little common sense and really do not care to learn the truth.

No wonder the MSM have to keep them afloat!

Archie said...

Great catch Hunter, keep up the good work.

frmgrl said...

Alberta girl, the thing is I was reading anon's posts. I did get a glimpse into what the left is thinking, and they make absolutely no sense whatsoever. They have no grasp on reality. I began skipping anon's ramblings because it's always the same. No real debate just a bunch of juvenile baffle gab.
Anon has made his/hers mind up and there's no changing. That's the way left is. You can point out blatant facts but they just can't except them.

Anonymous said...

No. You questioned the statement, I explained it. Then you continue to misquote the original statement, even though I think it is clear. I have clarified it, just for you, oh 5 times now. Yet you continue to ignore that. That makes you dishonest.

If you want to spread your brand of untruths, start your own blog - why spread your hate onto other's blogs.
Now it's back to the hate card. Are you really so unimaginative? You continue to project.
Why don't you stop lying?

It is painfully obvious that you do not want to debate; your mind is made up, you believe that Alberta is the source of all the pollution in this country (funny as we NEVER have smog days here) yet you turn a blind eye to the other provinces that are actually strip mining and not reclaiming the land.

You are lying. Can you helpfully provide the quote where I state I believe Alberta is the source of all pollution in this country? No you can't. That is because there isn't one. All you have is your own projections, pre-cooked rants to spew at anyone who triggers it by using words that you pick up on. Kind of like a bot would do.

So are you a bot or are you a liar?

Hahahahaha!

And this passes for critical thought here. What a laugh.

They have no grasp on reality.
You mean I don't agree with you. But you can't just say that. It's always insinuation of mental illness. You forgot to insinuate drug addiction. And you forgot to insinuate I am some kid. You're slipping again.

I began skipping anon's ramblings because it's always the same. No real debate just a bunch of juvenile baffle gab.
I stand corrected. You did remember to play the "juvenile" card.

But you are really skipping my "ramblings" because you don't like to hear different views, do you?

Anon has made his/hers mind up and there's no changing.
Oh boo hoo. You seem to think you can change peoples' minds by endless repetition of your lies. Sorry, it's not that easy.

That's the way left is. You can point out blatant facts but they just can't except them.
Please, PLEASE, try to get new material. I don't agree with your "facts", so now I have some mental disorder that I can't "except" (I'm sure you mean "accept") them? Baloney.

So much sneering ad hominem attacks here. That's why it's such a riot to read all your huffing and puffing.

Hahahahahahaha!

Alberta Girl said...

Anony haha

Whatever.....you are a typical left winger - you say things; then twist the next comment around to say that you didn't say that. Spin, Spin, Spin

I thought Gayle was on holidays but anonyhaha sure sounds like her??

I think I will take your comments to heart Frmgrl - thanks.

Wonder if that lib candidate, has anything to do with this photo making it back to the headlines. you know the one who had dead donators to his election for leadership, and then Anne Mc. had dead voters on her lists. Is that the medias way of saying, put PMSH back in opposition.

hunter said...

AnonHAHA I deleted your post for rudeness to other people. If you don't like it, tough, I do!! I hear your Mom calling you to come to supper, bye now.

Another reminder, anons will not be allowed on this site anymore, starting with my next post. Too bad one bad apple has to mess it up for all.

maryT said...

Congratulations to you re anonhaha
If one has to post as anon, for some reasons, they can always use a name before starting their comment. That would save time by going to the end to find out if it should be deleted.
Just identify yourself.
Have any of you gone to SDA and read the article in a foreign paper re who obama is.
Click on Is there anything this man can't do.

Gaglian going after a Farm Credit Loan to buy a vineyard in Quebec. Why doesn't he open some of those brown envelopes that had lots of money in them that seem to be missing. Also, LaFlleur is claiming bankruptcy to avoid adscam fines. And EC is worried about conservatives using their own money in an election campaign. And a Judge has order the Cadman tape to be investigated, along with the machine it was recorded on. So, Chuck's pic is in the news over that, and then this photo.
Did EC ever investigate those liberal ridings that used adscam money, or name the mps involved. Didn't think so. If as many liberals stay home in these 3 elections as stayed home when Rae was elected, Dion will lose all 3 ridings.

The missing 800,000

I think it's fitting that we are now calling “media”, what we used to call “news” - as news refers to something credible (like factually reporting events), while media is more just a means of communication; however what I’ve found lately is “news” people are using the “media” for “propaganda” and subtle influence like that picture - it must have taken a while to find it. I commented earlier on the CBC’s stating that “1,000,000” people were expected at Obama’s Berlin show. Later when an est 200,000 showed up I did not hear them comment on the missing 800,000, and it was heralded as a great success. Nonetheless, they got that “1,000,000 people” number connected to Obama, very subtle, very effective… and very disturbing. Great investigative Blogging!

On the topic of pictures - I have been told that when speaking in public that one should never "point" ones finger, as it can be misconstrued as offensive and make people ill at ease, however open palms supposedly are considered disarming and do the opposite. Check out http://www.nationalnewswatch.com/

I've noticed they've been doing this for a while now.

Very good point BW, I counted 6 pointing fingers, all by Conservatives. That might make a nice future post, thanks.
