Rick Mercer Report : Celebrity Tips with Lord Conrad Black

Rick   Mercer   Report   Celebrity Reports  with  Lord  Conrad  Black  of  Crossharbour  

Rick Mercer

Tonight, embattled former press baron Conrad Black appeared on the Mercer Report in the segment called “Celebrity Tips” where the likes of Tie Domi and Stephen Harper have previously self-deprecated before the cameras.

In the piece, we see, among elegant surroundings, a lone figure walking authoritatively toward the camera, silhouetted by sunlight shining through large French windows. The camera zooms in, and it’s Lord Black of Crossharbour!

Black muses philosophically about the seasons and the perceived inability to preserve the beauty of red maple leaves, delivered in the sophisticatedly high language associated with Black’s haughtiness. Purposeful or not, he seems to be emulating Martha Stewart when he demonstrates that the leaves must first be pressed between two (of his own) books before ironing them between two pieces of wax paper.

Self-deprecating humour like this is funny because it comes from a previously powerful individual who has fallen from grace, someone who tends to view himself in only the most favourable light. When he is seemingly at his weakest, he lets you laugh at him.

From my perspective as a Canadian, one of Black’s major betrayals was abandoning his citizenship in return for a House of Lords peerage, and I think this appearance was a chance to atone for that move. Regardless of whether he was pushed by arch-nemesis Prime Minister Chrétien, Canadians know that citizenship is something worth fighting for and is one of the most valuable things someone can hold—more than riches, more than being Lord-of-something.

Will this appearance resonate with Canadians? Maybe. Is it part of a larger campaign to get his citizenship reinstated? Who knows? But for his legal appeal, it doesn’t really matter because jurisdiction lies in a US District Court in Illinois.

In a CP-Decima poll conducted last July, Canadians didn’t think too highly of him, so Mr. Black’s only hope appears to be that the court of law in the US will be more relenting than the court of public opinion in Canada.

To watch the clip, go to the site and do a search for “Conrad Black” in RMR videos. It’s October 2nd, Season 5. http://www.cbc.ca/mercerreport/backissues.php?season=5.

We Are Change and Alex Jones were in Times Square Saturday night and by chance Geraldo Rivera was giving a live broadcast just a few blocks away. A Truth Square was quickly dispached, and we made it on live TV. Alex Jones was later arrested by police and taken away broadcast live. The rest of WeAreChange were still in Times Square watching the action on the giant screen!

TV Fakery on 9/11 – Brainwashing with Peter Jennings

Once you understand the 9/11 media hoax on it’s pretty clear what happened and didn’t happen. The media used the Air Force One is a Target story to sell the idea of planes and plane crashes, and establish the deception operation in people’s minds. It was not a normal day in the studio as military feed was going out on the air and overriding the regular control room.

News Flash: Alex Jones Arrested by NYPD

Infowars.com | September 8, 2007

NEW YORK – Media activist Alex Jones was arrested by New York Police Department officers while filming a documentary about the sixth anniversary of September 11th and joining the protest against the official version of what happened on 9/11.

According to Infowars sources Jones was singled out by police from the head of a crowd of about 400 9/11 Truth Activists and protesters. He was verbally accosted and forced by the police officers to present identification which he was not carrying at the time.

NYPD officers arrested Jones for “unspecified charges” and removed from the protest crowd to be taken to the nearest police precinct where he currently remains.

Rob Jacobson, camera operator on Jones’ documentary production crew indicated that a large portion of the protest crowd has moved to the precinct where Jones is being held to ensure his fair treatment and safe release.

Truthers descend on Geraldo

Gerald Michael Riviera

Mr. Gerald Riviera I had respected you for many years..not any more!

As a journalist, attorney and talk show host you should know better! Of all men in the USA media.

To say in your newscast on air for the 911 truthers in New York and Alex Jones to ( all get a life) and ridiculing the truth movement really makes me sick!

You are no longer a journalist Mr. Riviera! You are not professional nor are you objective any more to anything you cover or investigate.

You should leave the fifth estate because you are no longer a professional within the fifth estate.

You are not a journalist and should be removed from the media!

-KYLE

[…] Here is an example of the mainstream media ignoring and ridiculing the truth movement. Rather than exploring the most significant single political event of my life time they talk about cookies and scantily dressed women, while ignoring the shouting masses. A sign of the times. They can’t win. The truth has a certain ring to it. […]

We Are Change and Alex Jones protest Fox’s “Geraldo Live” in Midtown Manhattan Saturday night. According to the live feed the Police have arrested Alex Jones and taken him in for processing. During the broadcast of “Geraldo Live” the protestors shouted down the host for the show’s last half hour. Traitor, criminal, neocon, whore and “9/11 was an inside job,” were just some of the chants directed towards the host of the war mongering Fox New’s live show.

Geraldo at Large

Just listen to the little neocon Geraldo laugh and call the protesters crazy and communists. He was so nervous. What was great is you could clearly see the 911 was an inside job signs. Good work Wearechange. Makes me wish I was back in the statesFOX calls them Anarchist, Communists and says I bet they are all into gay bathroom sex.Great job Wearechange. Anti-neocons.com has got your back. As for Alex we will get him out. Americans STILL have the right to free speech. The Neocon’s policy of free speech zones and “let me see your papers” is unconstitutional. I hope Alex will use this to go to the courts.

Twilight Zone: Planet of the Apes (Part 3)

Twilight Zone: Planet of the Apes (Part 3)

Planet of the Apes “re-imagined” as an episode of The Twilight Zone. Why?

Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, also co-wrote the screenplay for Planet of the Apes. Which is why the movie plays like a two-hour episode of the show, complete with social commentary and shock ending.

Thanks to digital video editing, I was able to re-edit the movie as an episode of the show. Opening narration comes from the episode “Elegy.” Closing narration comes from “The Shelter.”
