Reflection: In Times like These

True Happiness in Times like These: The Lesson from my Fallen Uncle

by Kevin D. Annett

 Written on the 70th anniversary of his death for another

 

Sub.Lt. Robert I.L. Annett (author’s uncle), front row, third from right (killed in action)

He comprehends his trust, and to the same keeps faithful with a singleness of aim;

And therefore does not stoop, nor lie in wait for wealth, or honours, or for worldly state, or mild concerns of ordinary life;

But who, if he be called upon to face some awful moment to which Heaven has joined great issues, good or bad for human kind, Is happy as a Lover; and attired with sudden brightness, like a Man inspired.

He to whom neither shape of danger can dismay, nor thought of tender happiness betray; Who, not content that former worth stand fast, looks forward, persevering to the last.

Or if he must fall to sleep without his fame, and leave a dead unprofitable name, finds comfort in himself and in his cause;

And, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws His breath in confidence of Heaven’s applause:

This is the happy Warrior; this is he whom every Man in arms should wish to be.

- “The Happy Warrior” by William Wordsworth, 1770-1850

…….

My father is the only one in the faded photograph who still draws breath.

He was a boy of fifteen when the family photo was taken: the day before his eldest brother Bob left forever to serve as the youngest officer on the doomed Canadian destroyer HMCS Athabaskan.

My younger father stares soberly into the camera, bearing the same troubled look as every other member of his family, save one: nineteen year old Bob himself, whose easy and gentle smile seems untouched by the war that waits to engulf him.

One of the sailors who survived the Germans’ torpedoing of the Athabaskan seven decades ago this evening, on April 29, 1944, described, later, how Bob wore the same confident radiance in the dark and icy waters of the English Channel as men died about him. He recalls how Bob tried leading the ship’s survivors in song to keep their spirits and them alive, as the ship sank and the waters burned with diesel oil.

And in the midst of the carnage, Bob actually gave up his life jacket to a wounded man.

Last week, I held the old Annett family photograph in my hands as my Dad sipped his scotch and remembered his last memory of brother Bob.

“He could have spent his embarkation leave in town, whooping it up, or seeing his fiancee Elaine. But instead he drove out to see me, his kid brother, and he roused me out of bed and wrestled with me and cheered me up. He was that kind of a guy”.

I gazed at the snapshot and said,

“From the looks of all of you, it’s like you all knew he was going to die”

Dad nodded, and replied softly, and unashamedly awed,

“And look at his smile”

To those accustomed to the sluggish death we like to call peace time, the highest concern one can bestow on another is the admonition to “Be safe”. Even my closest friends tell me that all the time, as if safeguarding one’s own life is some kind of bottom line. It wasn’t for my Uncle Bob, nor is it for anyone like him who discovers the secret of life.

The same people who puzzle over how Bob is the only one smiling in that final photograph are the same ones who comment with regret that Bob died because he gave away his life jacket, as if it would have been possible for him to do anything else when faced with another man drowning from his wounds.

The desperate selfishness of “everyday” life spares us the chance to be fully human that is thrust so starkly upon on us by war. And so far too many of us go away sad and troubled by the actions of shining lights like my Uncle Bob, never understanding the drama: like the crowd who encountered Jesus on his cross and saw only bloodshed.

How habitually do we struggle to shore up the unsalvageable – our own mortal life – and refuse to live for that one moment when we find our real purpose in life by giving up our life entirely for what is right and necessary.

Perhaps Bob was so radiant in that final family photograph because he knew that his own special moment was approaching; and knowing his own measure and loving what he saw, he knew he would not fail. As for the others in the picture, how could their sadness be anything but their knowledge that they could not share in Bob’s moment?

We do not live in a time of peace, as much as we pretend we do. The war in which we are all now immersed, like all wars, is rapidly clarifying everything with the same simple truth, and choice, given to my Uncle Bob in the cold waters: If we do not act, others will die.

The particular happiness of true warriors is that they can devote every moment to the service of that deed, which is after all, the essential thing. And for those who shrink back from such necessary action, there is no remedy, and no ultimate happiness.

That is why I can’t understand or give consideration any longer to the multitudes of “concerned” but immobilized people who shrink back from doing what is necessary to save not only the lives of children, but our lands and our liberties, now, amidst this final war being waged against humanity by a global machinery of death.

At desperate moments like this, hope does come to us, but always at a great cost.

What does awaken us are living examples of a true man, or woman, who show that we are not measured by our capacity to “Be safe”, but rather, to be True, regardless of the cost.

That is the secret of Bob’s smile, and of my own: a reflection of the special opportunity granted to every human being, which no tyrant can rob from us, and no cataclysm can undo.

Will you seize that noble chance?

An Invitation to Participate in the Birth of a New Nation: The Republic of Kanata In Winnipeg, Manitoba commencing Monday, June 15, 2014

“Our land and its wealth resides equally in the hands of all the people, and by such justice is the True Law honored and Liberty assured”

Canada is a rogue nation, created in genocide and conquest and sustained by crime and corruption. But this past year, its heads of state and church have been lawfully convicted of crimes against humanity, and under the Law of Nations, their authority has been nullified and disestablished. (see “Canada is Dissolved” Common Law Proclamation, below)

This revoking of the power of the so-called Crown of England and the government of Canada has given all Canadians the opportunity and obligation to create a new society based on justice and equality, and cleansed of a legacy of crime and foreign domination.

It is on this basis, and from out of the hopes and cries of both the living and the dead, that a sovereign Republic in Canada is arising to reflect and uphold the sacred liberties of all of its people and nations. In the lineage of our ancestors and Republican patriots like MacKenzie, Papineau and Riel, we now take this stand.

It is in this recognition and spirit that The Provisional Council of the Republic of Kanata has convened and issued the following statement and Invitation:

Let it be known that a Federal Constitutional Congress will convene on June 15, 2014 in the city of Winnipeg to draft a Proclamation of Sovereign Independence and a Constitution for all the peoples and nations of Kanata.

Delegates from organizing committees across the country will gather on that day to frame the new Republic under the auspices of The Provisional Council of the Republic of Kanata (RoK) and the International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ).

To participate, one must first sign the Oath to Establish the Kanata Republic (below) and solemnly pledge oneself to its lawful creation, and form or join a local RoK organizing committee of three or more people from which to seek election as a Congress Delegate. Individuals may also apply to attend the Congress as non voting delegates with speaking rights. The peoples’ media and international observers will be present at the Congress, including from the ICLCJ.

The Republic of Kanata will be lawfully proclaimed and enacted following the Congress, no later than the First Day of July, 2014. Join us and take back our country!

For information contact The Secretary of The Provisional Council of the Republic of Kanata at republicofkanata@gmail.com .

A Public Oath to Establish The Republic of Kanata

As a freeborn man or woman, I the undersigned do hereby and solemnly swear to actively establish a sovereign Republic on the lands and waterways formerly known as the Dominion of Canada, casting aside all previous political allegiances.

I therefore publicly vow my allegiance to the Republic of Kanata, its Laws and its Constitution as established at its Founding Congress under the authority of the Natural Law and the Provisional Council for the Republic.

I take this Oath freely and unconditionally, without coercion or reservation, according to my conscience and capacity as a free born man or woman. I pledge to stand in solidarity with and to defend all those who swear this Oath.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Thursday, March 7, 2013

CANADA IS DISSOLVED

A Legal Notice to the People of Canada and to all agents of the so-called Crown of England

Issued by the International Common Law Court of Justice, Brussels

LET IT BE KNOWN, that on February 25, 2013, our lawfully constituted Court and its fifty eight sworn jurors found Elizabeth Windsor, Queen of England and Head of State in Canada, guilty as charged of Crimes against Humanity and of engaging in a Criminal Conspiracy to obstruct justice and conceal her personal complicity in the permanent disappearance of ten Canadian children.

This verdict, which also found guilty former Pope Benedict, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other officials of church and state, was based on irrefutable evidence of their role in the deaths of over 50,000 aboriginal children through Crown established and church-sponsored internment camps. Neither Elizabeth Windsor nor any of the defendants denied or contested this evidence, nor did they respond to the Public Summons issued to them. Accordingly, the Pope, the Queen and the Prime Minister were sentenced in absentia to twenty five years imprisonment and a loss of all authority, assets and property.

Our Court’s verdict rests upon the Nuremberg Legal Statutes which allow any head of state to be tried for crimes against humanity, as well as the right under Canadian law to hold the Crown liable for tort offenses committed in Canada.

Elizabeth Windsor, as a convicted felon and fugitive from justice, is not only liable for immediate arrest and imprisonment, but has forfeited any legal or constitutional authority. All constitutional arrangements and Nations based on the authority of the Crown of England have accordingly been legally dissolved.

Therefore, Canada has been rendered as a state without legitimate legal or political authority. It will remain so until a new and lawful Head of State and Constitution can be democratically established by the people of Canada.

As of this date, all agents of the former Crown of England are released from their obligation and allegiance to that Crown and the government of Canada, including all Members of Parliament, judges, civil servants, the police, and the military. All courts, laws and statutes based upon the Crown and former Dominion of Canada are similarly disestablished and their power is nullified.

Until a legitimate government and law is established in Canada, citizens are obligated to conduct themselves under the inherent common law requirement of equity, peaceable co-existence and self-government, maintaining their own law and order within their communities. For all existing political, legal and police authorities in Canada are illegitimate and inoperative.

As self-governing men and women, citizens are obligated to convene a National Congress to draft a new Constitution for a sovereign Republic of free citizens. This Constitution, established in such a Congress, will be ratified by a popular vote, and will establish a new democratic Republic in Canada.

The new Constitution will include a legal framework to ensure that all of the convicted parties in our case of genocide in Canada will similarly be disestablished as corporate bodies, including those churches responsible for Genocide and Criminal Conspiracy in Canada: namely, the Vatican/Roman Catholic church, the Church of England, and the United Church of Canada.

Our Court has entered this verdict and statement into its permanent record, and issued it to all of the governments of the world and to the United Nations. As such, this Public Notice constitutes a legally enforceable document that may be used by the Bearer to uphold his or her status as a freeborn man or woman within Canada who is not subject to any authority or law save as a Citizen of a democratically constituted Republic in Canada.

Promulgated by the International Common Law Court of Justice on the Seventh Day of March in the year 2013.

Kevin Annett: Pope Bergoglio flaunts UN deadline on child trafficking as 30 child skeletons discovered at B.C. native residential school

VANCOUVER, BC – In an interview today with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Kevin Annett, field secretary of the International Tribunal for Crimes of Church and State discusses how Pope Bergoglio is using the basic methods recommended by Machiavelli in flaunting a UN-imposed deadline for revealing Vatican-controlled data on child trafficking and tightening up rules covering up child abuse in the Catholic Church just as 30 skeletons of children are discovered in a mass grave on the grounds of a United Church residential school for native children in Port Alberni, B.C.

International intervention frees Canadian Prisoner of Conscience Steve Finney

ONTARIO, CANADA OFFICIALS UNSUCCESSFUL IN CRIMINALIZING POSTING ITCCS.ORG VIDEOS ON YOU TUBE AND JAILING ITCCS.ORG MEMBERS -

He’s Out! International intervention frees Canadian Prisoner of Conscience Steve Finney – “Early morning call” to Ontario’s Attorney General spurred ITCCS leader’s release

Kitchener, Ontario:

The courage and resolve of Steve Finney himself, and phone calls from the ITCCS and a United Nations non-governmental body to the Ontario government, stopped cold an attempt by local judges and police to silence Finney and his campaign to confront child trafficking in Kitchener, Ontario.

Finney was released this afternoon in a sudden about-face by local authorities less than two hours after Ontario Attorney General John Gerretsen spoke with two human rights officials who have monitored Finney’s unlawful arrest and imprisonment.

According to one of these officials, who is a legal advisor to the ITCCS in Brussels,

“We can’t disclose the conversation we had with the Attorney General, out of mutual agreement with Mr. Gerretsen. But I can tell you that we informed him that we were preparing a motion at the United Nations to censure his government for its treatment of Mr. Finney. We were also going to name Finney as a prisoner of conscience if he wasn’t released, since he was clearly incarcerated because of his political beliefs.”

Kitchener Judge Michael Cuthbertson had just yesterday told Steve Finney that he would not be released on bail unless he formally renounced his involvement with the ITCCS, and denied anyone connected to ITCCS the right to offer sureties for Finney. The Crown Counsel had also attacked ITCCS in the bail hearing and suggested that Finney’s wife Amy Smart could be arrested for posting ITCCS videos on youtube.

“I feel fantastic” said Steve Finney in a brief telephone interview soon after his release.

“I’m more determined now to keep fighting than I was before the arrest. What I saw in Maplehurst prison was sick, like, men sleeping on the floors and these overcrowded dirty cells. But the 35 guys in my cell all know their rights better now after I told them about our work and how Canada is dissolved. I’m going to be out on the street tomorrow fighting for those guys and for our common law rights.”

A complete video interview with Steve Finney about his campaign, his unlawful arrest and his imprisonment will be posted tomorrow at www.itccs.org .

Congratulations and thank you to the hundreds of people who rallied to Steve’s defence on such short notice. We’ve shown that police state tactics can be halted by the people working together.

Now let’s build on this victory and carry on with our common law courts and the struggle for the Republic of Kanata and for sovereign nations everywhere!

ITCCS leader Steve Finney assaulted and bloodied by Kitchener police, jailed illegally without charges

Breaking News Update: Monday, September 30, 2013, 1:00 pm EST

Kitchener, Ontario:

After being illegally arrested yesterday without being charged with anything, political prisoner Steve Finney, a leader of the ITCCS and Common Law movement in Canada and a declared citizen of the fledgling Republic of Kanata, was assaulted by Kitchener police this morning and appeared bruised and bloodied in a Kitchener courtroom. Steve was ordered to be detained another day until a bail hearing is held tomorrow.

“His right cheek is all bruised and bleeding, there’s blood all over his face, and there’s a big bruise under his nose that has blood on it” described his wife Amy Smart.

“I asked him who did it and he pointed to one of the uniformed cops in the courtroom”.

Steve and Amy have been outspoken critics of the Childrens’ Aid Society (CAS) and the police of the Kitchener-Waterloo area for their involvement in trafficking local children. The couple have picketed local CAS offices and called on residents to ignore the “false jurisdiction of crown courts”. In response, CAS officials have seized their five year old daughter Amber.

Both Steve and Amy are declared citizens of the Republic of Kanata.

“We need everybody to come down here tomorrow to the courthouse to see what’s happening” said Amy in a telephone interview this morning.

“This is a police state. Steve’s name wasn’t even listed on the court register this morning when he appeared, and they still aren’t charging him with anything. They wouldn’t allow a bail hearing today even when Steve asked for one because he has a job to go to. They’re trying to destroy us for our beliefs and ’cause we know what they’re doing to our children. But we won’t ever give up.”

The Kitchener ITCCS and local Republic of Kanata chapter have called a media conference for 9 am tomorrow, Tuesday October 1, along with a public protest, outside the Kitchener-Waterloo Criminal Courthouse. The address is 85 Frederick street in Kitchener, Ontario.

Come and rally to defend this targeted family, and an innocent man: brave defenders of liberty and our children. Don’t let them crush us one by one!

An Open Letter to Canadians about your Country’s Final Solution – and a Final Reckoning

A Special Communique by The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (Brussels) – Issued 23 September, 2012

An Open Letter to Canadians about your Country’s Final Solution
http://youtu.be/QTTzBQzaJV0

This week, thirty two public summonses were issued to mostly Canadian citizens, including Prime Minister Harper and major church officials, calling them to account for colluding in or concealing unspeakable crimes against children.

These crimes include beating children to death, kidnapping and starving others, torturing them in medical experiments or making them infertile, farming them out to wealthy child rapists, and gang raping and exploiting them as slave labor.

These abominations occurred in Canada for over a century in detention camps misleadingly called Indian residential schools, run by catholic and protestant churches. Some of these crimes continue today in your country.

Your tax money and church offerings have for many years helped to sustain these crimes and protect the guilty.

Your police have buried the grisly evidence of these atrocities, and continue to prosecute and silence those eyewitnesses who try to share the truth.

And your politicians and courts continue to whitewash these crimes and exonerate the churches that killed off more than 50,000 children in what they still call Indian residential schools.

The time of your complicity in these crimes against humanity is ending. For an International Common Law Court of Justice has convened and has charged dozens of Canadians with responsibility for genocide and criminal conspiracy. Their trial begins on October 15.

You can be in the global online courtroom that will judge the evidence of Canada’s Genocide and come to a verdict. You can help Canada come clean about its deliberate plan of extermination against Indians by holding your nation and its churches to account and be indicted for their home grown Holocaust.

The Common Law Court will be posting online all of the evidence behind its charges, commencing October 15. If a guilty verdict is reached, you are obligated under international law to stop funding and colluding with a government and churches found guilty of crimes like these:

- the beating to death of Victoria Stewart, age 9, by United Church employee Ann Knizky at the Edmonton Indian residential school on April 9, 1958

- the forced sterilization of Sarah Modeste and hundreds of other young women by United Church doctor George Darby at the infamous R.W. Large Hospital

- the use of Joan Morris and many other children as involuntary test subjects for drug testing, organ removal and pain endurance experiments at the Nanaimo Indian Hospital

- the attempted murder of William Combes, Ernie Tatooche and many other children by deliberately exposing them to tuberculosis and denying them treatment, at Catholic, Anglican and United Church hospitals and schools … and the actual killing of more than half of the children in these facilities by such methods

- the continued theft and trafficking of aboriginal children through “child aid” government agencies

The historic reckoning for these crimes has finally arrived. Be part of this cleansing and not its impediment … for all of the children.

Educate yourselves by seeing some of the evidence at www.hiddennolonger.com. Stay tuned to www.itccs.org for the complete posting of all of the cases and evidence in the Common Law Court docket indicting Canada, the Vatican and other powers for crimes against humanity.

Crimes at Mohawk School in Canada
http://youtu.be/G04DuSJhBhw

Barely three years ago, my aboriginal friend Johnny Dawson was beaten to death by three policeman in Vancouver, Canada for leading occupations of local churches that murdered more than 50,000 children in their “Indian residential schools”.

The official cause of Johnny’s death issued by the Vancouver Coroner’s office made no mention of his broken nose and shattered jaw.

Johnny’s fate is an example of how Canada’s genocide of native people has never stopped.

Last year, at a tribal-approved excavation, I held in my hand bits of bones and small buttons from what appears to be the mass grave of Mohawk Indian children who died at the Church of England Indian school in Brantford, Canada, and who were buried in secret on the school grounds. But after we made this historic news public, the Canadian media refused to report any aspect of it.

Canada is a land of official silence and coverup when it comes to its own ongoing genocide. With full church and state authorization, for over a century a hundred thousand Indian children were incarcerated in special camps called “residential schools” where until 1996 they were gang raped, tortured, worked to death as slave laborers, sexually sterilized, experimented on, starved to death and exposed to communicable diseases. Half of them died there.

For twenty years, I have documented and made public the details of these crimes (www.hiddennolonger.com), and have watched as the Canadian government and the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Churches have evaded justice and covered up their responsibility for the deliberate killing of more than 50,000 children in this infamous system.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is personally implicated in this criminal conspiracy by authorizing an official whitewash known as Canada’s “Truth and Reconciliation Commission”, which censors survivors’ statements, minimizes the genocide, ignores the mass graves of residential school children and actually prohibits the prosecution of the guilty churches and the naming of names of the guilty. Prime Minister Harper must be made to stand before an international court of justice for this crime.

Behind Canada’s global image of a humanitarian nation lies the fact that it continues to violate international law with apartheid legislation known as the Indian Act, which denies aboriginal people on reservations full citizenship rights. The death rate among Indians is forty times the national average, and Indian children are still stolen from their families and cultures in a clear plan of cultural eradication by the government that is as entrenched as it was during the time of the Indian “residential schools”.

Canada’s extermination of Indians is in fact continuing at an ever-quickening pace because of the demands of the United States military and corporations for Canada’s uranium, water and minerals, much of which lies on Indian territory. The depleted uranium that slowly tortures and kills the children of Iraq and other Islamic nations is mined on Cree Indian land in northern Saskatchewan, where it first causes the same death among Cree aboriginal families.

Whenever we have confronted these crimes of past or present genocide in Canada, we have faced the same attacks from the government, corporations and churches responsible. A total of thirteen native activists in our network across Canada have been killed or died mysteriously in the last four years, including homeless men like Johnny Dawson in Vancouver. I believe the only reason I am still alive is because of my pale skin; and the public exposure our campaign has received.

That campaign is now escalating, as we have joined with other victims of catholic church terror in countries like America, England, Ireland, Italy and Australia. This month, we are launching an online common law court, in which the evidence of these crimes will be presented to panels of citizen judges and jurors, and an enforceable verdict will be issued.

We urgently rely on the courts and people of other nations to help us bring to justice the institutions responsible for the ongoing slaughter of indigenous people and children. We have served public summonses on Pope Benedict, the Queen and England, Prime Minister Harper of Canada and other church and state officials. On November 1, our International Common Law Court of Justice will begin revealing to the world the extent of their crimes against humanity.

For the sake of our children, living and dead, and for the victims of the worst genocide in human history, I ask for your help.

Please call and work for international economic and political sanctions to be brought against Canada for its genocide of Indians, and for a boycott of all trade and tourism to Canada. Endorse our Common Law court, and give it exposure in your media. And join us to actively dis-establish the Vatican and other churches and criminal institutions covered with the blood of so many innocent children.

Please consult the attached documents and videos.

In the name of our common humanity and our desire for justice, I thank you.

An Open Letter to the “Aboriginal Peoples” Television Network

from Kevin D. Annett

An Open Letter to APTN
http://youtu.be/01Iq6OR0ibA

Dear APTN, and assorted minions,

I was going to write to your lawyers about all this, but you know how humorless those guys tend to be. And this involves what’s ultimately a laughing matter, despite the seriousness of the garbage you’ve been up to.

This week, as part of a grossly misrepresentative smear piece you’ve been running on me, you’ve been broadcasting my image on your network after I expressly denied you permission to do so. Somewhere, I read, that’s against the law.

You’ve also publicly lied about the work I’ve been doing at the Brantford Indian residential school in our search for the mass graves of the children who died there.

Let me say, first off, that I’ve tried unsuccessfully for several years to interest your station in our campaign to open these graves and bring the murdered children home for a proper burial. Ever since the farcical “apology” for genocide issued in June 2008 by your paymaster, the Prime Minister of Canada, you’ve ignored the whole issue, including the list of 28 mass graves near former Indian residential schools that I sent to your head office in April, 2010.

Even last year, when ten Mohawk elders gave me written authorization to commence surveys and digs at the Brantford “Mush hole” residential school, and when we actually uncovered evidence of buried children there, APTN refused to broadcast this historic news.

So it’s quite odd, and humorous, that APTN is now trumpeting itself as providing the “real story” about the missing residential school children in Canada. Exactly how you’d know anything about the issue is beyond me, considering how steadfastly you’ve shunned it.

But the heat is on you now, obviously, with the guilty government and churches’ need for a new big spin on the matter of mass murder of Indian children. Or is it coincidental that you guys are suddenly interested in missing Indian kids, now that the whitewash those killers call “canada’s truth and reconciliation commission” is about to issue its final report? A report, incidentally, that’s a $68 million version of the Warren Commission Report, except that it does the Americans one better: there wasn’t even a lone gunman responsible for the crime up here, apparently, since nobody was responsible for the deaths of those 50,000 Indian kids, considering that nobody is standing trial for the death of even one child – especially not the churches responsible.

So I understand. But in your zeal to suddenly look credible on the issue and help discredit me and the only independent inquiry into the mass graves, your bits of journalistic integrity have vanished quicker than death records into a church shredding machine. Because you’re openly lying about me, on the public airwaves.

One of your recent inflammatory pieces, for instance, claimed that our survey team at the Brantford Mush hole school relied only on “psychics” to identify the spot where childen were buried.

I guess you guys don’t watch youtube. In early October, 2011, images of our scanning the grounds of the school with a Ground Penetrating Radar machine were posted all over the internet. I can send you the link, again, if you like.

You also claim that our digging up a small two foot deep, five foot square patch of earth near the school has “irretrievably damaged the site”, which is an odd thing to say, considering that the site encompassses more than three hundred acres.

What you convientally don’t mention on the air is the significance of the evidence we dug up at the Mush Hole: namely, buttons from children’s uniforms at the school, entangled in tree roots. Eyewitnesses say that when kids were buried on the grounds, trees were always planted on top of the remains.

Newsworthy? Apparently not to APTN. What you do consider important is to spread lots of gossip, innuendo and unsubstantiated nastiness about me personally, and pass that off as objective coverage of murdered children.

Which brings us to those bones we uncovered.

What you claim is that I, a white guy, went it like a gangbuster at the Mush Hole and dug up some animal bones and then passed them off as human, and thereby so angered the Mohawk elders they asked me to leave. That’s also what the government and church spin doctors are saying about me, but I guess that’s another coincidence, eh?

What actually happened is that with full permission, I conducted two small digs in the presence of authorizing Mohawk elders and uncovered many bones close to and mixed with the school uniform buttons I mentioned. That same week, an archeaologist named Kris Nahrgang and an Ontario fire marshal called Greg Olson sat with me and the Mohawk elders and studied the bones we unearthed. After a half hour of examining one small bone, Olson said, with Nahrgang agreeing,

“I’m 90 pecent cetain this is human, probably a small child’s knee socket. But we’ll need a forensic examination to be sure.”

On the basis of his remark, I subsequently showed that bone on a youtube broadcast and a Toronto TV program, and repeated Olson’s words: that it was “probably human”, but we weren’t sure yet.

The bones were then sent off to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington for analysis. Their chief forensic specialist took three weeks to examine them and then told me on the phone,

“They could be human but I think they’re animal. I’ll need more samples to be sure.”

Frankly, his ambiguous comments seemed strange to me, and I believe he was influenced to say what he did and to be vague. It wouldn’t be the first time a government scientist has responded thus when faced with the remains of possibly murdered Indian kids.

Meanwhile, back in Brantford, a woman name Jan Longboat, who admitted she receives government money, had been smearing me in the comunity from top to bottom and paying a man named Frank Miller to join the “Trash Kevin Annett” campaign. The two of them created enough confusion to put any further digs on hold – and again, I guess coincidentally eh? – Miller is the first and primary Mohawk that APTN went to for “the real story” about Kevin Annett and the Mush hole dig.

Of course, I’m not the issue at all: all those dead Mokawk children are, as is those who put them under the ground – namely, the Anglican Church of Canada and the feds. And Anglican Bishop Bob Bennett in London, Ontario has been sitting on hard evidence – including an 1870 Crown document outlining a plan to wipe out the Mohawks – that reveals that the church knew about the deaths at the Mush Hole and did nothing.

Funny that none of that made it into your programs, especially since, once again, I shared all of that information with you as I learned it from former Anglican researcher Leona Moses, who asked me to make it public. You are still getting my updates, aren’t you?

I know the pressure you guys are under. Last January, Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Cantebury, told top Canadian Anglican Fred Hiltz that not one church record about the Brantford school is to be made public. Back in law school, they called that obstructing justice. But I guess he can do that sort of thing, being an Archbishop.

The Archbishop didn’t call you guys too, did he?

Well, don’t worry. All of this stuff is being documented and will be broadcast soon all over the world, through the online common law court I am involved in that is publishing hundreds of exhibits detailing the crime and coverup of genocide in Canada … something else you’ve never mentioned over your airwaves.

So get the story straight, guys, and stop lying about me and what’s going on. But of course, engaging in such journalistic integrity, so unusual in Canada, will cost you your jobs, your reputations, and perhaps a lot more. That’s the price of truth.

cheers

ps: I’ve attached pictures showing that at the Brantford site, not only were we employing a GPR machine and technician – that’s Clynt employed by the Six Nations Tribal Council on the left, teaching ITCCS worker Lori O’Rorke how to run it – but your informant Frank Miller is filming everything, on the right. So how can he now claim we were only using a psychic?

Also, the pictures include three authorizing Mohawk elders – Bill Squire, Cheryl Squire, and Yvonne Hill – involved in the dig, and Cheryl Squire commencing the dig.
