ARTHUR HAILEY

This was going to be one of those Canadian lobster posts, where I tear down a fellow Canadian who has done something significant. However, I am reading "The Evening News" and discovering that Arthur Hailey was actually quite a good author. Sure, his books may seem a little tame and corny, but he was great at filling in the backstories of his characters. He can take you from New York in the early 90's to San Francisco in the 60's to England to a B-17 over Germany in 1943 in just a few dozen pages.

This post also kind of ties into my last post as CKWS-tv was the station that first aired the play "Flight Into Danger."

CKWS-TV, CHEX-TV NEW SCHEDULES

This is probably the last year I'll be doing this. With the switch to digital coming next August 31, I won't be able to pull out the old analog TV with antenna on Labour Day to check out what changes CKWS and CHEX have made. Besides, with the two stations becoming more homogenized and adding more Cbc programming every year, monitoring their new schedules is frankly becoming less fun.

At 7:00 a.m., the two stations pick up a feed from CBCNN, whereas the main Cbc stations have Cbc 4 Kids. This is a good move on CKWS and CHEX's part. Kids shouldn't watch TV when they first get up in the morning.

From 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., there is really no change from last season:

8:00: infomercials
8:30: Life Today
9:00: Cbc 4 Kids
10:30: CKWS-infomercial; CHEX-Rod Hembrey
11:00: The People's Court
12:00: Cbc News
1:00: Oprah

At 3:30, both stations have "Vicky and Kristena's Grocery Bag" a cooking show which is quite entertaining. It is probably produced by Corus Entertainment, the station's parent company.

At 5:00, both stations have "The Insider." This is a good move since people can see the show right when they get home from work instead of waiting till after dinner.

At 11:35, both stations still show David Letterman, and CHEX still has multicultural programming on the weekends.

HAM CHATTER

Heard some guys talking on their hams tonight just below 4480.

One guy was talking about his new cameraphone. Then a group of guys that were on there started talking about "Get Smart" and how hot Barbara Feldman was. The topic then switched to whether you could shoot somebody with a flaregun. I then heard one of the hams say:

"Hey Jack, I got a Chinese microphone. It sounds real good if you speak Chinese to it."

Then they talked about Herb, this old guy that was on the bands a few decades ago and would ramble on incoherently all day long.

THE FIRST WORLD WAR WAS STAGED

In the years prior to World War I, all the kings of Europe wanted to go to war. You've got to consider that these guy's families had been in power for generations. The rulers of Europe were dellusional with inherited wealth and power.

The assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdenand was the excuse needed to start a war. The situation could have been quickly defused if Gavrilo Princip had been rounded up, tried and executed.

Much of the war was a stalemate. This suited the rulers just fine because it kept the troops fighting and pumped more money into the economy. We must also remember that before the war, there was the chance of an economic depression.

During the war, the Kaiser tried to warn of influences controlling both sides of the conflict, but since he was the enemy, nobody listened to him

With the assasination of the Czar and the Spanish flu having started to sweep through the trenches in the last months of the war, most of the leaders decided they couldn't keep the thing up much longer so they moved toward peace, with the hostilities of course ceasing on November 11, 1918.

The end of the war brought about the League Of Nations, the first incarnation of world government. The terms of the treaty of Versailles set Germany up as the one who would start the next world war.

In the editorial of the August issue of Chatalaine, the editor says the magazine has been talking to Canadian women to find out what they want in their magazine. They're trying to be all things to all women. They've got an article about the oppression of women in Africa next to an article titled "Making Over Your Makeup Bag."

An itim in the Nutrition section advises women to eat a Happy Meal rather than a Big Mack because it has fewer calories. I would advise people trying to loose weight not to eat fast food at all.

The Food section has recipes for a rehearsal dinner. Why do we have rehearsal dinners? We've been having weddings for thousands of years.

In the July/August issue of Canadian Geographic, writer and documentarian Peter Sybil writes about attending a rodio in Lindsey, Ontario in 2008. He writes about how he forgot about all the problems of the world while he was there. It really is amazing how those types of events can envelope you in the momment. I just attended our local fair this weekend and at times all I was thinking about was the carioke emanating from the grandstand and the horse competitions and the beautiful sunshine.

The In Habitat section of the same issue is written by a man talking about watching his neighbours bail hay. I was visiting my former neighbours one time. They had moved to our small town from Ottawa. A truck carrying hay went by and the woman commented it was like living in the sticks. I said, "It's haytime" to which she responded, "It's 3:00." Yeah, they are yuppy idiots.

Another member of the Chatalaine staff has died of breast cancer. muhahahahahahahahahaha.

POPE INVITES BRITISH PROTESTERS TO SMOKE THE PEACE PIPE

Pope Benedict today invited representatives of various groups who've been protesting him to sit down with him and partake in a bong.

"I just want to find out what's in these guys heads," the 83-year old pontiff told reporters.

Humanist and various gay and lesbian groups have been protesting outside of locations where the Pope has held masses and ceremonies.

"Traditionally, the Church forbids the smoking of marijuana, but I'm the Pope so if I say it's all right it's acceptible."

The August 30-September 6 issue of Maclean's has an article about Brian Wilson's upcoming album of Gershwin music. Why do so many of these old rock stars have to put out albums of other people's music? Make something new!

In the same issue, there is an article about Japanese companies hiring retired workers. I admire people who are retirement age who keep working. A fair number of retired people seem unhappy.

There is also an article in the same issue about Ray Fleming's new biography of Peter Gzoski. Gzoski doesn't sound like he was a really good person, due to his arrogance, numerous affairs and poor performance as a father. However, I can't fault him for making up stories about his childhood on the radio. The number one rule of radio is keep it happy. People wouldn't have wanted to hear about how he grew up unpopular and with an absent father and mostly absent stepfather. They wanted to hear about him playing hockey and that he had a wonderful father. Making up things about himself was just part of Gzoski's on-air persona.

FRANKLIN W. DIXON, CAROLYN KEENE KILLED IN PLANE CRASH

Famous children's authors Franklin W. Dixon and Carolyn Keene were killed today when the plane they were travelling on crashed in the jungles of Brazil.

Dixon was the author of the Hardy Boys detective series, Keene the author of the Nancy Drew detective series.

"They will be sorely missed," a spokesman for Siman And Schuster, the two's publisher said in a statement.

Franklin W. Dixon and Carolyn Keene were 143 and 140 years of age respectively.

TO A REPRESENTATIVE FROM AMERICAN PRECIOUS METALS

No one from this household sent you a fax requesting information about buying precious metals from you. Quit calling my house with your slick attitude. Also, if I hang up on you due to the fact I've dealt with you and your scummy ways before, don't immediately call back two or three times in succession.

Judging by the attitude of this company's sales representatives, I suspect that possibly they are affiliated with the mafia.

If this continues, I am going to track you down, break your legs, saw them off, beat you to a bloody pulp until you aren't even recognizable as a human being, bash your head against something thoroughly, pull out your teeth, pluck out your eyes, chop off your ears, break some as yet unspecified bones, and punch your nose really hard. Finally, I will chop your head off.

In college, they told us to bash the system and never a specific person. However, it has occurred to me that the particular American Precious Metals sales representative who keeps calling our house might be a renegade who is in violation of his otherwise upstanding company's sales and customer service policy. Thus, the name of the jerkface who keeps calling and bothering me is JOE BABCOCK.

Have a nice day and thank you for visiting the Alex Horton Blog.

The August 23 issue of Maclean's has an article about Mao Jin-Yu, the grandson of Chairman Mao. He's never actually done anything and is childish. He's like George W. Bush and Barack Obama combined.

In the same issue, there is an article about the reprinting of the Judy Bolton books. Judy Bolton was a contemporary of Nancy Drew. All the books were written by a Canadian woman. Unlike the Nancy Drew series, the criminals in the Judy Bolton stories were never entirely bad. That's the problem i find with a lot of Canadian literature and TV series: the "bad guys" are given too much sympathy. People want to see the hero or heroine defeat a really mean, dispicable villain.

The August 31-September 6 issue of Maclean's has an article about a woman who was stocked by a man for 36 years. He had a disturbed personality and "could find anything he wanted in the Bible." This sounds a lot like the father of a friend I had growing up. He had met my friend's mother and kept bugging her until she agreed to go on dates with him. He was a mental case who claimed to be a Christian, even though there were rumours and some potential evidence he abused his wife and children and his attendance of church consisted of watching Benny Hinn on Sunday mornings.

There is definitely a fine line between "pursuing a girl" and stocking.

THE ILLUMINATI AND ITS TRIAD OF EVIL

I have just finished months of grueling but exciting research into the shadowy but tremendously important spiritual and temporal (material) connection between
three world powers, China, the United States, and Israel. Unbeknown to the average man on the street, Satan’s human agents who comprise the Illuminati
elite are actively organizing the Earth’s resources to engineer a final assault on man’s freedom and independence. These three nations are at the center
of the Illuminati Plan.

I discovered that China, in the span of less than four decades, has been transformed into a Colossus of Evil unparalleled in the annals of mankind. China’s
banks—HSBC, Bank of China, and others, in concert with Rothschild’s JP Morgan Chase Bank, rule the precious metals markets—gold, silver, platinum, etc.
Its petroleum corporations, in a brief ten year period, have grown and vaulted over western oil combines like Chevron, Shell, and BP that have operated
in the global markets for over a century.

Moreover, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and other western banks have cooperated with the tyrants in Beijing and have constructed over 100,000 huge warehouses
located throughout Red China. These warehouses are brimming with stores of expensive materials—wood and lumber, aluminum, iron ore, steel, tin, concrete,
brick, glass, tractors, earth-moving equipment, tools. The list is endless.

Why is Red China stocking up on so many valuable materials? Is the Communist leadership preparing for war?

Iraqi Oil Laundered by Rothschild’s Israel and Red China with U.S. Assistance

In last month’s newsletter (see my investigative report, Rothschild’s Black Gold Empire, available on
Tape
or
CD
, 60 min., $8), I exposed the scam in which Rothschild’s oil companies and banks, in collusion with Israel’s corrupt leaders and Obama’s White House, are
stealing Iraq’s plentiful oil resources and laundering the oil through China. Due to this outrageous scheme, China’s PetroChina has now become the world’s
fifth largest oil company and is expected to top Exxon-Mobil as #1 in the world by 2015.

Houston Chronicle June 9, 2010
This amazing June 9, 2010 article in the Houston Chronicle reveals how Chinese oil companies are now operating in Iraq, plundering that conquered nation’s
plentiful oil resources. Iraq’s oil is being laundered through China by Rothschild’s Israeli-owned oil cartel.

The name Rothschild is legendary in all three of these Illuminist nations, China, the U.S.A. and Israel. The Rothschild Dynasty was founded in the eighteenth
century by patriarch Mayer Amschel Bauer in Germany. Bauer changed his family name to “Rothschild” (Red Shield) and so, once again, we discover a clue
to the links between human agents and the evil perpetrated by the Great Red Dragon, the Woman who wears purple and scarlet (red), and the Beast whose color
is scarlet (red).

The color red has always depicted whoredom—in many cities, the “red light” district is where brothels are found. Communism touts the symbolic “red” color.
Lenin, in plunging Russia and the captive republics of the U.S.S.R. into murderous chaos, coined the term “Red Terror.” Bloody red streams of death flooded
the cities, villages, and farm areas of the U.S.S.R.

The western media, long owned and controlled by Jewish billionaires tied to the Rothschild trust, have covered up the historical truth that the Khazar European
and Russian Jews who invaded Palestine in 1948 massacred many of the resident Palestinians and stole their land, businesses, homes and farms. Most of the
Jewish invaders were vicious Communist terrorists. Their military weapons were of Communist origin, and one of these terrorists, the insane first Prime
Minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion, was an avid admirer of Lenin and Trotsky. (You can read about the “Red Terror” of Ben Gurion, Menachem Begin, Yitzak
Rabin, Ariel Sharon, and other Israeli “pioneer” monsters in the revealing book,
The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
, by the courageous Jewish historian, Ilan Pappé, available from Power of Prophecy for $20 + $5 s&h).

These Khazar Jewish jackals who invaded a land of peaceful citizens and stole their property and birthright saw fit to pretend that they were establishing
a “democracy” in Palestine, a myth that exists to this day.

The Jewish Origins of Mao’s Communist Regime in China

Another revelation that U.S.A. and western journalists and historians are prohibited from writing about concerns the Jewish origins of Mao Tse Tung’s Red
Chinese revolution. In fact, Mao was a stupid and inept Chinese peasant who was schooled by Skull and Bonesmen and initiated into the internationalist
Masonic Lodge by socialist Jews from the United States. This was done with the tacit permission of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a 32nd degree Mason
and, later, President Harry S. Truman a 33rd degree Mason.

Mao all along has been a closely-controlled puppet of Jewish revolutionaries—men like Israel Epstein and Sidney Shapiro, who lived in China and had the
reins of power over two key areas of Beijing’s Communist Government—the treasury (money) and the media (propaganda). Interestingly, Zionist Jews hold sway
over these same two essential instruments of government today in the United States.

Jewish Spies Give U.S.A. Military Secrets to Communist China

The covert Jewish control of Mao and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) explains why convicted Jewish spy Jonathan Pollard, found guilty of stealing thousands
of classified documents from the Defense Department where he worked, gave these materials to his masters, the Israeli Mossad operating in the U.S.A. The
Israelis, in turn, transferred these valuable military secrets straight to Red Chinese dictators in Beijing.

Pollard, a Jew born in Galveston, Texas, sits in a federal prison today. Recently, when Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu came to America, he visited Pollard
in prison and assured the despicable turncoat Israeli spy that the Israeli government was working behind-the-scenes with Obama’s White House to pardon
the convicted spy. Meanwhile, Pollard is a national hero in Israel—honored for stealing America’s most precious military secrets which Israel gave to Communist
China!

With the election of their puppet, Barack Obama, to the presidency (see my
DVD,
Rothschild’s Choice) the Jews and Israel now have effective control of the vast wealth and resources of this great nation. The Jewish swindlers placed in
power in Washington, D.C. by Obama—Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Ben Bernanke, and Timothy Geithner, et al—along with their Zionist fanatic associates in
Congress—are working nonstop to transfer America’s wealth to Israel and to Red China. The United States is being victimized by “Creative Destruction.”
This is unparalleled stealth robbery on a scale never before seen in history.

America Being Superseded by China

Red China has been chosen to be the poster child and role model for the Illuminati’s Hegelian synthesis of Communism and Capitalism. The United States,
meanwhile, is being purposely beat down and suppressed. Alien philosophies and a wave of immorality are being used to destroy peoples’ minds while Wall
Street operators continue their Ponzi scheme manipulation. The Federal Reserve, under Jewish banker Ben Bernanke’s direction, is regularly transmitting
boatloads of electronic cash to foreign banks in China. Thanks to this infusion of dollars, along with the trillions of dollars brought in from stolen
Iraqi oil use and sales, the Chinese economy is galloping ahead, roaring at 10% gain annually. But the crippled U.S. economy continues its slide to oblivion,
and a final economic crash could be precipitated by the elite at any moment.

Gold will not save America. China’s HSBC Bank has its tight grip on the gold markets. Oil won’t save us—Obama’s environmentalist bureaucrats are denying
drilling permits to U.S. oil companies while China has recently built 25 new oil refineries and its storage tanks are bulging with stolen Iraqi oil.

The One Thing That Truly Matters

The astonishing economic and military growth of the Illuminati’s Triad of Evil means that we may we be approaching the final stages of prophetic history.
Let us then all keep our eye fixed on the prophecies of the Holy Bible and fasten our hearts and minds on the one thing that truly matters: Our relationship
to Jesus Christ.

The August 16 issue of Maclean's has an article about feminist mothers with trashy daughters. According to the article, these children even hate the word feminism. Maybe one of the reasons these girls hate the feminist movement is they see what miserable bitches their moms are. The feminist movement has failed because of things like the Girls Gone Wild videos. It was never about providing freedom to women; it was always about money, destruction and control.

In the same issue, there is an article about a man in London, Ontario who makes custom trailer hitches. He'll make a hitch so you can tow a trailer using a midsize or compact car. I wonder if he could design a trailer hitch you could use on a smart car?

I totally agree with the editorial of the August 23 issue of Maclean's. The editorial is in favour of summer vacation, as opposed to year round school, which the editor cites as more costly. Year round school is just designed to get kids used to the kind of working conditions they'll experience when the new world order totally comes into effect. They'll work long hours every day, yearround without a break.

DAY SIX

CBC Radio One, Saturday, 10:00 a.m.

This show is so boring and predictible. Of course the Cbc is going to think Terry Jones's plan to burn the Koran is a stupid American thing, of course they're going to take the position that Craigslist being forced to take down it's adult services section will endanger sex workers, of course the scientist who created the world's first genetically modified salmon aproved for human consumption is going to think it's perfectly safe, of course the Cbc is going to have someone on saying yuthinatia is a good thing.

Like so many Cbc shows before, Day Six claims it is edgy and irreverent but it is really just dull and boring.

ANIMALS THAT SHOW AND TELL

By William L. Coleman. Minneapolis, MN: Bethany House Publishers, 1985.

Lord, I never knew you gave such diverse uses to the acorn. People can eat acorns? I never knew there was such a thing as the acorn woodpecker. I didn’t know that insects lay their eggs in acorns.

We had a family of wrens in our wren house this summer. I’d be out there at around 5:00 many afternoons and I’d hear them cheeping away. At that time, the wrens were raising their chicks. Soon, the babies became big enough to leave the nest. We all watched, hoping to see them leave, but they wouldn’t do it while we were watching. One day, when everybody was at work, the babies flew away. We went outside in the late afternoon and they weren’t there anymore.

I never heard of the water shrew before. What an amazing animal You created.

Snow actually does good things. It provides protection for small animals, insulates the ground and renews the supply of groundwater. If these bloody evolutionists had their way, they would come up with a scientific way to eliminate snow. Then many speces of animals would become extinct and there would be massive drought. To me, snow alone is one massive proof that God created the world.

I had no idea butterflies could get violent. Just shows you how God made it so even those who don’t look like they can stand up for themselves can take on their enemies if they need to.

I didn’t know boas and pythons had legs. Nevertheless, they must crawl on their bellies as God decreed in Genesis 3.

I never knew there were such things as tirons: half lions, half tigers. Are there such things as cabbits: half cats, half rabbits? The exception proves the rule, however. Things reproduce kind after kind.

My sister has finches. Their song is so beautiful.

I didn’t know polar bears were really black.

I didn’t know the Amazon rain forest had cedars. I thought it only had tropical trees like mahogany.

The skunk pig is another interesting animal I wasn’t previously aware of. I had heard of the skunk ape, which lives in the swamps of Florida and also gives off a really bad smell.

Two calico cats we had used to bathe each other. The older one started doing this when the other one was just a kitten. They continued to wash each other until they got too big to fit in the basket together.

I didn’t know spiders didn’t have ears. They use sound waves, like bats.

The hog-nose snake is a wimp. If it encounters danger, it will puff itself up to resemble a cobra in an attempt to scare predators away. However, if the danger persists, the hognose snake will play dead. Two-legged snakes are like this. They’ll act all tough when first threatened by an opponent, but if the opponent perseveres, the reptilian person will run away.

One of our dogs treed our Maine coon cat once. The cat ran up the tree. When the dog was safely in his pen, the cat climbed down again. It took him a while, but he made it.

It has been theorized that before the fall, mosquitos ate plants.

A distant cousin of mine got stuck in quicksand once at Turkey Point. My mother and cousins got him out.

Ravens and crows are definitely intelligent, manipulative creatures. For me, another huge proof that God created the world. There is this western-themed store my sister and I like to visit. Until recently, they had a crow there that could talk.

O Lord, O Lord, how excellent is Your name.

It’s a wonderful world that God created.

The August 2-9 issue of Maclean's has an article about a saling instructor who promised his students a fun and enriching cruise but turned out to be cruel and abusive. His students were stuck at sea three times longer than promised, given very little food and constantly berated, among other things. Why did none of them mutiny? They probably could have taken him on.

In the same issue, Jacob Richler tries out a new, trendy drug popular among new agers. It causes horrible halucinations, vomiting and diarrhea. Why would anyone want to take that?

There is an article in the same issue about how hoola hooping has become popular among adults. Many people find twirling a hoop around their body to be good exercise. Even in high school gym class, we used to spin hoops around our ankles and wastes so I don't see why adults wouldn't think it's part of a good workout now.

THE SABBATH: MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

I believe the sabbath is on Saturday.

If you look in the Catholic literature, you'll discover that the Catholic church changed the day which is set aside for worship from Saturday to Sunday, because they could.

Some Evangelical ministers will tell you that because Jesus rose on Sunday, that changed the day of rest and worship from Saturday to Sunday. However, since Jesus rose late Saturday afternoon or early Saturday evening, as opposed to Sunday morning, this can't be true. These Evangelicals will tell you that Sunday being the Lord's Day is supported in the first verse of the book of Revelation. However, it only says "the Lord's day", not Sunday, so John could have been referring to the Saturday sabbath as the Lord's Day. These ministers will also tell you that the day of worship being on Sunday is supported by the fact that the believers were worshipping together in Troas on Sunday, the first day of the week. However, this only says that they were worshipping on that day. Just because you set aside Saturday to worship God doesn't mean you can't worship him on any other day of the week.

After going back and forth between Saturday and Sunday for a couple years, I finally settled on Saturday being the sabbath about ten years ago.

Now, I don't believe we should be strictly legalistic about keeping the sabbath. After all, Jesus said that the sabbath was made for man and not man for the sabbath. The last day of the week is basically to be a day of resting from the work you normally do during the week and a day on which you make time to worship and fellowship with God.

Personally, I try to rest from my work as an at-home sales representative on Saturday. A lot of Saturdays, it is tempting to do some work. However, I've found that doing a good amount of work during the week takes care of these temptations.

Also, I try not to buy anything on Saturdays. For one thing, we buy too much in our society already. Addbusters has their Buy Nothing Day; why not have 52 buy nothing days a year. The exception to this policy of not buying anything is if the proceeds from the sale are going to a charitable organization.

I also try not to go to malls or stores on Saturday because, along with the reason about overconsumption stated above, by going to a store on the sabbath I am, in a way forcing people to work on the sabbath.

A few times a year I'll go to parties or other events on the sabbath. Like I said, I'm not strictly legalistic about it. I'll also go to places like the Indian River Reptile Zoo and the Peterborough Zoo because those are basically charitable organizations. I attend my company's regional convention once a year, which takes place from Friday to Sunday, but I have to do this to stay informed. I wish it were held on different days, but it can't be helped. Also, sometimes if I go to visit someone, it'll involve going to stores on Saturday. This can't be helped either, and I'd rather visit my friends than stay home alone for the sake of not shopping on Saturday.

I just want to encourage anyone that, if they're thinking of keeping the Biblical sabbath, they can do it. Ask the Lord to help you and he will.
