Liberal Party of Canada – Official Site

Posted by Justin Trudeau on December 31, 2013

Tonight, like many of you, Ill be ringing in the New Year with my loved ones.

And whether youre a lifelong Liberal or new to our movement, we have plenty to celebrate.

Less than 8 months ago, when you offered me the privilege of leading our party, I said that we had won nothing less than the opportunity to work even harder.

And for all weve accomplished, for all the hard weve done, that remains true today will you donate $3 now so that we are able to continue that hard work in 2014?

The optimism and hope of Canadians are the backbone of our movement, and that will always be stronger than the cynicism and negativity of the Harper Conservatives.

But weve seen what theyre capable of when theyre able to outraise and outspend us month after month.

That ends today. We can outraise the Conservatives, but we all need to dig deep and chip in before our midnight deadline.

Donate $3 now and lets show Canadians the power of hope and hard work:

Confirmed: Alternative Bulgarian Leftists to Run in EU Elections

A rift appears imminent in the Bulgarian Socialist Party, as MEP Ivaylo Kalfin has confirmed that an alternative left-wing project will take part in the upcoming EU elections.

Kalfin told the Bulgarian National Radio on Tuesday that the ABV movement of former left-wing President Georgi Parvanov will endorse its own MEP candidates.

This will be announced later today, Kalfin said.

Parvanovs Alternative for Bulgarian Renaissance (ABV) movement was declared “frozen” less than a year after its launch, but is now set to be revived, triggering suspicions of an even deeper divide among the Bulgarian Socialists.

The first aim of ABV will be the elections for European Parliament in May, where the Movement will have a separate alternative left-wing ballot.

Kalfin, a former Foreign Minister (2005-2009), is expected to head ABVs EU election list. Key Bulgarian Socialist Party officials have already condemned Parvanov and Kalfin as traitors.

Bulgarias fragile Socialist-led government remains in power despite seven months of relentless anti-graft protests.

The Nightmare of Christianity | The Nation

Matthew Murray, a disturbed young gunman behind the the shootings in Colorado Springs, chose to end his nightmare and rebel against Christian-right self-help gurus and cult-like doctrines.

The following is an excerpt from Max Blumenthal’s new book, Republican Gommorah: Inside the Movement That Shattered the Party, published by Nation Books.

Max Blumenthal is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in TheNew York Times, theLos Angeles…

A continuing conversation about Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel.

Its deploying all its resources to fight the growing world movement against the occupation.

A few miles down the road from Colorado Springs [a home to James Dobson's Focus on the Family], in the quiet bedroom community of Eldredge, a deeply disturbed young man named Matthew Murray followed the unfolding debacle at New Life Church [once under the stewardship of Pastor Ted Haggard] with an interest that bordered on obsession. Murray, a sallow-faced, bespectacled 24-year-old, had been indelibly scarred by a lifetime of psychological abuse at the hands of his charismatic Pentecostal parents. Murray’s mind became crowded with thoughts of death, destruction, and the killings he would soon carry out in the name of avenging what he called his “nightmare of Christianity.”

On an online chat room for former Pentecostals, Murray heaped contempt on his mother, Loretta, a physical therapist who homeschooled him to ensure that his contact with the outside world was severely limited. “My ‘mother,’” Murray wrote, “is just a brainswashed [sic] church agent cun,t [sic]. The only reason she had me was because she wanted a body/soul she could train into being the next Billy Graham…”

He went on:

…my mother was into all the charismatic “fanatical evangelical” insanity. Her and her church believed that Satan and demons were everywhere in everything. The rules were VERY strict all the time. We couldn’t have ANY christian or non-christian music at all except for a few charismatic worship CDs. There was physical abuse in my home. My mother although used psychotropic drugs because she somehow thought it would make it easier to control me (I’ve never been diagnosed with any mental illness either). Pastors would always come and interrogate me over video games or TV watching or other things. There were NO FRIENDS outside the church and family and even then only family members who were in the church. You could not trust anyone at all because anyone might be a spy.

An authoritarian Christian-right self-help guru named Bill Gothard created the home-schooling regimen implemented by Murray’s parents. Like his ally James Dobson, Gothard first grew popular during the 1960s by marketing his program to worried evangelical parents as anti-hippie insurance for adolescent children. Based on the theocratic teachings of R. J. Rushdoony, who devised Christian schools and home-schooling as the foundation of his Dominionist empire, Gothard’s Basic Life Principles outlined an all-consuming environment that followers could embrace for the whole of their lives. According to Ron Henzel, a one-time Gothard follower who co-authored a devastating expos about his former guru called A Matter of Basic Principles, under the rules, “large homeschooling families abstain from television, midwives are more important than doctors, traditional dating is forbidden, unmarried adults are ‘under the authority of their parents’ and live with them, divorced people can’t remarry under any circumstance, and music has hardly changed at all since the late nineteenth century.”

Gaza’s ruling Hamas cancels anniversary rally, cites growing …

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip An official says Gaza’s ruling Hamas has canceled its upcoming anniversary rally because of the territory’s economic woes. The Islamic militant group had used the elaborate annual commemoration of its December 1987 founding to demonstrate its control over Gaza.

The cancellation indicates that Egypt’s border restrictions, including the destruction of smuggling tunnels, are increasingly hurting Hamas.

Egypt’s military clamped down after a July coup against a president who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood, of which Hamas is an offshoot.

The border crackdown, accompanied by Israeli restrictions on Gaza, has caused power cuts, fuel shortages and the virtual collapse of the construction industry.

Hamas official Ashraf Abu Zayed said Sunday that the movement canceled the Dec. 7 rally and would spend the money on projects to “alleviate the suffering.”
