We Need To Speak Out . . . NOW – MORE THAN EVER

WE CAN’T FIGHT YESTERDAY’S BATTLES IF WE WANT TO WIN TOMORROW’S

THE IMMEDIATE FOLLOWING BARELY SCRATCHES THE SURFACE:

Obama just licensed Iran to try and wipeout Israel, and to more successfully foment TERRORISM to create its Caliphate.

Islamists are threatening the world.

MILLIONS of Arabs in Syria and other Arab countries have become pitiful refugees at the hands of fellow Arabs, not to mention the more than half-a-million Arab men, women, and children in Syria, who’ve been massacred and raped, also at the hands of fellow Arabs.

Russia is invading an autonomous country (Ukraine).

China is imposing itself on the sovereign territories of other nations in the South China Sea.

Greece and the rest of the Europe are teetering on bankruptcy.

Hezbollah and other assorted Jew-Haters and America-Haters are marching down our streets in Canada and the USA.

Obama and the LEFT are creating the GREAT DIVIDE between Blacks and Whites, rich and poor, men and women, straights and gays, young and old, MAKERS AND TAKERS . . . as they throw the American Dream and the US Constitution into the garbage.

IF NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO REALLY SPEAK OUT . . . THEN WHEN?

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE . . . and fighting is not without consequences. So, when I ask once a month for support for this BLOG and the things that I do and try to do . . . THERE ARE REAL COSTS, and I’m always prepared to pay them.

As many of you know, and some of you might just be learning, I am a NON-COMPROMISING DEFENDER OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.

In the USA, this is called the FIRST AMENDMENT . . . In Canada; it’s called the discretion of Judges and government appointed non-jurists to Canada’s 11-Human Rights Commissions, which carry the weight of law, but are above the law.

ONE OF THE HEADS OF THE COMMISSIONS said a few years ago in a media interview, that Freedom of Speech does not apply in Canada . . . “IT IS AN AMERICAN CONCEPT”.

I WAS IN COURT LAST WEEK . . . Standing before a Bankruptcy Judge, because I refused, and still refuse to raise money to pay as much as $300,000 to the other side, for a FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION LAWSUIT I fought and lost.

In the province of Quebec, where the French population numbers more than 80%, the UNRESTRICTED USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS AGAINST THE LAW.

In the Province of Ontario, which is 96% English speaking, French language ethnocentric nationalists, most of whom speak English fluently, who are concentrated in numbers per community, carry political clout near Ottawa (Canada’s capital), because of their concentration, passed bylaws making the stand-alone use of the English language on private commercial signs ILLEGAL.

WE EITHER FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS . . . or we don’t deserve to have them. And as usual – I chose to fight.

TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE MEETING WITH THE JUDGE . . . on questioning under oath, I was asked why I chose to file for insolvency, when my wife has a successful advertising agency, why we just sold a 5-star hobby-farm, how come I don’t own the agency or the farm, or any of the equipment on the farm, or any of the multiple vehicles we have, all of which is 100% owned by Anne?

It confused her how the only thing I owned was my motorcycle. But, that was no accident, because in the mid-1990’s I decided to invest my time writing and fighting, turning all of our assets including the house and business over to Anne.

MY ANSWER TO THE INQUISITOR WAS SIMPLE AND SUCCINCT:

“I put everything on the line to save YOUR RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, and give you the right to question me in the language of my choice.”

. . . HOW MUCH CLEARER THAN THAT DOES IT GET?

THE COURTS AND MY ADVERSARIES WONDERED HOW I PAID FOR OUR LAWYERS:

I’ve been standing in the PUBLIC SQUARE for most of my adult life, fighting tooth and nail to defend others against an ever ENCROACHING GOVERNMENT, which is determined to take away the power of the people, in order take this power for themselves.

I have funded several FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION Supreme Court Battles from inception to conclusion. We won one, which turned out to be a Pyrrhic Victory, in the way it was written-up in the courts pandering judgment.

I helped finance another FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION Supreme Court Battle, which we lost, because the Supreme Court couldn’t define FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.

IN MY MOST RECENT CASE . . . The Supreme Court didn’t have the courage to hear our appeal, even though it is a monumental national issue, which they cannot avoid forever. And because the Supreme Court dismissed our Appeal, the case died, and I became PERSONALLY responsible for the Court Costs and Legal Costs of the other side.

I PAID OUR LAWYERS IN FULL, who gave us a break on their fees, which still cost more than $125,000 . . . some of which was paid by four elderly patriots, three of whom have since passed (25%), some of it by the CLF (Canadians for Language Fairness 25%), some of it by me personally (25%), and some of it by YOU through Galganov.com.

IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAVE HAPPENED:

BUT I WOULD BE DAMNED . . . if I would ever turn to you, or anyone else to raise money to pay the legal fees for a COURT CHALLENGE that never should have happened, and I never should have lost . . . ESPECIALLY AFTER THE FACT.

And there was no way under GOD’S Creation that I was going to ask or allow Anne to make the sacrifice of paying for the RIGHTS of all Canadians, the vast majority of whom can’t be bothered to stand up for their own RIGHTS.

IT ISN’T FREE . . . BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PRICE WORTH PAYING:

I have already personally paid THOUSANDS of dollars over the past year to the Trustees, none of which, gratefully went to the other side or to the courts, and was informed last week by the Judge, that I will have to pay more thousands of dollars over the next 12-months, until I am released from any and all obligations. TO ME, THIS IS A VICTORY – ‘cause it’s coming to an end.

IT WAS INDEED A VERY CHEAP PRICE TO PAY FOR THE DEFENSE OF FREEDOM:

This editorial has nothing to do with how much money I spent over the years, and the aggravation that I agreed to live with . . . IT IS TO LET YOU KNOW, that whatever is contributed to GALGANOV DOT COM GOES TO THE FIGHT . . . NOT TO ME.

I HAVE NEVER TAKEN AN INCOME FROM GALGANOV DOT COM:

Galganov Dot Com was incorporated as a Federally Chartered Non Profit Corporation, which does not pay salaries. And all the money we receive through this BLOG goes entirely to finance the things I do in the USA, Canada, and Israel.

As a matter of fact, the other side was so upset with my refusal to give them $300,000 or any portion there-of, that they questioned Galganov Dot Com . . . TO NO AVAIL, since Galganov Dot Com files extremely detailed and complete tax returns every year, specifying all financial activities, with the exception of the names of the people who support the BLOG.

I GENERALLY NEVER SPECIFICALLY THANK ANYONE ON THIS BLOG . . . BUT:

The CLF (Canadians For language Fairness), headed by Kim McConnell, a naturalized Canadian Citizen, who has fought MORE passionately for FREEDOM in Canada than anyone else I know, always carries the FLAG against government overreach . . . and for all of our FREEDOMS.

Kim felt so badly about the Bankruptcy Court Costs to me, the ones that I have already paid, and the ones I will pay over the next 12-months, that she insists the CLF send $500 to help defray some of the costs, WHICH IS 100% UNNECESSARY, since this is water already under the bridge, and paid for by me.

WE CAN’T FIGHT YESTERDAY’S BATTLES IF WE WANT TO WIN TOMORROW’S:

AS YOU READ IN THE OPENING PARAGRAPHS . . . there is so much CRAP coming at us everyday, and from every direction, that NOT fighting is NOT an option. And as long as I can write and speak, I fully intend to be at the forefront.

I’m too old to fight with my fists, and even if I was a younger man, physically fighting would win little – but, reaching a large audience that is hungry for the truth and leadership, and FIGHTING in the COURT of PUBLIC OPINION against those who wish to take away our RIGHTS . . . IS SOMETHING I DO VERY WELL.

HERE’S THE MONTHLY PITCH:

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE . . . and neither is it free to me – for the things that I do, and the costs and maintenance of GALGANOV DOT COM. And if you feel that this BLOG provides real value and can make a difference, and you can afford to offer FINANCIAL SUPPORT . . . it would be most welcome.

  • Keep up your great efforts, look forward to your eds nex year. Have a great 2015. Very best from an ex-pat.

  • Some people just do not have the mental capacity to function. That seems to be the case of your Canadian court system. Keep up the good work Howard.

  • My cheque is in the mail, Howard.

  • Howard I agree totally with what you have been saying.Freedom is a human right but it comes at a large price.Often I question people this “are we free men or men living in the illusion of freedom” Most of them actually answer this correct but few are prepared to do anything about it. Made a valiant attempt to defend some of those rights like the right to “peacefully make a living without harming anyone or their property without any interference” Guess how that ended, their pockets are deeper.

  • Thank you, Howard, for being you!! The feistiness that you show in all your battles does your heritage a great honour – you come from a people who have suffered through generations but have still come out swinging!!! We were so grateful to you for helping us expose the idiocy of the language laws in the Canadian 1982 Constitution which was written with one thing in mind – to transfer power from the majority English-speakers to the minority French-speakers by forced Frenchification.

  • It is time for a revolution.

  • Well stated Howard.
    I’m thoroughly disenchanted by a Canadian Supreme Court that cannot define Freedom of Expression. They need only look at themselves to see that they in fact possess such a basic principle of a free and democratic society. Many of their decisions are based on their own ideologically socially left leaning ideas. I can only assume Freedom of Expression in Canada belongs only to our Supreme Court!

  • Howard, I see that Canada’s judges are idiots, just like the USA’s judges!!! However, you are right on … We can NEVER stop fighting, for our Freedoms! The only good thing that the SCOTUS did, was to stop the EPA, for the moment. The US President & his Administration, is out to completely destroy the USA. I am so fearful, that with the November 2016 elections, the US President will enforce Martial Law & the USA will be screwed. I am mightily concern, for the future of the USA.

  • Howard–You don’t only “do the talk”, you “do the walk”, i. e., you’ve experienced many situations which have helped you to STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH! We appreciate your Editorials because they encourage US to do the same. I made a small contribution for the “blog” at the beginning of the year and plan to do so again next year. A “reminder” to your followers, from time to time, is NOT an unreasonable one. Best wishes………you and Anne are in my prayers each night. WE SHALL OVERCOME………AMEN!

  • I am thankful there are people like you willing to risk all they have monitarily for the freedoms we citizens of both Canada and the United States take for granted. Our court systems are errant to say the least our freedoms are fast fading into the sunset and most people stand in line for the hand out’s they seem to think are free. Someone has paid dearly for the freedoms we enjoy and you Howard are one of those few who have put their money where their mouth is. May God have mercy upon us.

    David L. Rice, Nebraska
  • Thanks Howard
    My question is this . Do you think there is enough character in our country to have a freedom rally.
    The soloist would sing our national anthem and the speaker would address the issues of same sex
    marriage, the loss of our freedoms , our national enemy of Islaam, and what we ought to do in the fight.
    I am Searching for leaders in politicians and preachers but so far have not been successful .
    Appreciate what you are doing. Gordy Hagen. Abbotsford British Columbia

  • The Obamaman is out to destroy the USA and every other freedom loving country. He was brought up by a communist mom. Raised by communist grandparents and throughout his life by surrounded himself with radical or communist friends and acquaintances. The division and rancor that he is spreading is all part of the communist manifesto. His father was an anti-colonialist and to destroy what he feels is the world’s #1 power would fulfill his father’s dream. Everything that he does is planned.

  • Howard, Years ago on 60 minutes after the wall came down and Moscow was coming to grips with it’s “freedom”, Mike Wallace was interviewing average Russians in the street, and a Russian Soldier “protecting the people” made the comment, “Freedom is worth more than a pound of Sausage.” That has always stuck with me.
    We are getting closer to socialism and the end of Freedom here. Much closer, and faster, than I ever thought possible.
