The Blanche Report: Deep Throat, The Bahamas & Roy

A few months ago we wrote about Dr. Arthur Porter, perhaps one of the most sly individuals out there who managed to weasel his way into the highest offices in Canada. He’s now wanted for a myriad of serious offenses like fraud and stealing the government blind. He jumped ship here and bolted for the Bahamas a while ago. He’s one smart dude and knew that Canada has no extradition treaty with the Bahamas.  A few months ago he claimed  he was very ill with advanced lung cancer and was unable to come to Canada to defend himself. Wouldn’t you know it?

Well, Dr. Porter seems to have made a miraculous recovery and was able to travel to Panama with his wife, where Canadian authorities do have an extradition agreement and zut alors – arrested them both. He has fifteen days to fight the extradition but we don’t think he will be successful as the ‘friends’ he made here in high places lost his number long ago. Stay tuned, this story could be very juicy.

Obama is still in some serious dog doodoo. He’s another very sly fellow and instead of staying in Washington to deal with the issues at hand, ran to ‘comfort’ the people in tornado-struck Oklahoma and then onto the Jersey shore to sing the praises of his dear Republican friend Chris Christie. They were both marveling on how the Jersey shore made a come-back after hurricane Sandy.

The advice Obama has been given is pretty straight-forward: Batten down the hatches and wait for the storm to clear.

He’s dealing with three fronts simultaneously: Benghazi and the cover-up there, the IRS microscopic checks on Tea Party members and some Jewish groups, and the wiretapping of about 20 AP reporters. It seems that Obama did not know about the latter two problems. The Benghazi business is something entirely different and he should be raked over the coals for that one. But, being the sly dude that he is, we have a inkling that he will somehow slink his way out of all three.

One more thing about the wiretapping of reporters. People who feed reporters information, often want to remain anonymous. If the reporter’s phones etc are wiretapped guess what’s coming back? Deep throat. For those too young to remember, he was someone deep inside the Nixon administration who would meet Woodward or Bernstein in a garage somewhere in Washington and give over what the two rookie reporters should be following next. It’s coming back to theater near you again.

As we speak, Obama could have another scandal on his hands. Two US embassy officials were shot today in Venezuela while at some kind of, shall we say, place where women are not quite fully dressed. The story is still unfolding.

Senator Mike Duffy is going to get his wish of being able to testify before some committee that you and I will be paying for. The Senate committee on internal economy has voted unanimously to send the matter of Senator Mike Duffy’s expense claims to the RCMP. It has come to our attention by someone in the know that over the years in his capacity as reporter, Mr. Duffy accumulated serious amounts of, shall we say, interesting information about many politicians and high ranking officials. Could be they don’t want him to open his mouth. Oops.

Things for ex mayor of Laval, Gilles Vaillancourt are looking worse by the second. Three credible sources from three separate Quebec police forces revealed that some of the people Gilles Vaillancourt allegedly used to smuggle cash to Europe were minors. Quebec police claim Vaillancourt has hidden about $15 million that he allegedly received fraudulently through kickbacks from construction companies that won municipal contracts in Laval, which is just north of Montreal. $15 million??? This guy is no small potatoes.

In case you were wondering what’s happening with Kate and William we’ll fill you in. She’s due mid-July and once the baby is born will be spending the first six weeks in her parent’s home. Smart move. We couldn’t really see her rumbling around Buckingham palace with William’s grandparents – Queen Elizabeth and Phil, nor could we envision Chuck and Camilla taking care of her.

Patrick Roy, ex goalie of the Habs has been named coach and vice-president of hockey operations for the Colorado Avalanche.
Why does he still rub us the wrong way?

We’ll talk…
