Democrats Question Ambassador's Role in Organizing McCain Speech in Canada

By Michael D. Shear
A Canadian newspaper reported Thursday that Friday's scheduled $100-a-plate luncheon speech by Sen. John McCain in Ottowa was organized in part by U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins, a former South Carolina lawmaker whom President Bush appointed in 2005.

Democrats pointed out the article late Thursday night, and alleged that Wilkins's actions could be construed as a violation of the Hatch Act, which prohibits many kinds of political activities by government employees.

The article in the Edmonton Sun, and an earlier one in the Globe and Mail, says that Wilkins contacted Thomas d'Aquino, the president of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, to help set up what they described as a fundraiser before McCain's visit. McCain is scheduled to give a speech at the the Chateau Laurier Hotel and to meet with several Canadian officials.

According to the Sun: "Wilkins had been contacted by the McCain campaign about a Canadian visit, and the ambassador wanted to know if some of d'Aquino's group of corporate chief executives might be interested in meeting the Republican presidential candidate. Almost instantly, d'Aquino jumped at the opportunity."

The Hatch Act circumscribes political activity for government employees. According to the American Foreign Service Association Web site, the State Department's ethics office prohibits fundraising activities for its presidential appointees.

The Web site for the association prints Cable No. 035610, the guidelines from the ethics division of the Department of State Legal Adviser's Office.

"In particular, you may not sell tickets for or otherwise promote fundraising activites such as political dinners for a partisan candidate or political committee," the cable says.It adds that the rules are for anyone "on duty," and that "the legislative history suggests that ambassadors may be considered to be on duty twenty-four hours a day while they are at post."

The McCain campaign said Wilkins did nothing more than help gather a crowd for a speech by a U.S. official, something that is well within his role as an ambassador.

A McCain spokesman said that while the campaign pays travel costs for the trip, the luncheon, held by the Economic Club of Canada, is not a fundraiser and not a campaign event.
He said the $100-per-person ticket price for the event is to cover the cost of the lunch and will not benefit the campaign.

"It's not a fundraiser. That's to pay for their own lunch. That is not for campaign coffers," Brian Rogers said. "The Ottawa speech is not in our view a campaign-related event. Thus, anything related to that is not political."

This is not a big deal. I think the funny part is that after spending the money to fly up there, and to take valuable campaign time talking politics in another country, he got caught and can't take the money now! Cool. If McCain is going to continue to try to skirt around the laws, he really needs to get better aids that at least can come up with a better back up story to fall on when caught with one's pants down. They sure do not want to count on quick thinking by Johnny M.

DEAR MR. PRESIDENT, I AM DEEPLY WORRIED ABOUT THE POLITICAL FUTURE OF THE USA. THAT´S WHY IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ACCEPT THE ELECTION OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA AS AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT! AS A MATTER OF FACT, I CAN´T UNDERSTAND WHY THE AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC DELEGATES WANT TO BLACKMALE THE AMERICAN SOCIETY AND WANT TO JEOPARDIZE THE AMERICAN DEMOCRACY THROUGH THE ELECTION OF A JEREMIAH´S WRIGHT FELLOW.

IT IS NEVER RIGHT TO ELECT A JEREMIAH´S WRIGHT CANDIDATE. WHAT THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN REALLY MEANS TO THE WORLD? I AM SURE YOU KNOW THE ANSWER (OR AT LEAST GUESS IT)! YOU WILL SURELY FEEL SORRY AND DISAPPOINTED FOR THE INCOMING EVENTS THAT ARE TAKING PLACE IN THE USA NOW.

HOW COME WE DIDN´T REALIZE YET THAT AN AFRICAN AMERICAN CAN´T BE AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT? HOW COME WE ALLOW AN AFRICAN AMERICAN REPRESENTATIVE TO BECOME AN AMERICAN ELIGIBLE AND QUALIFIED PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE? ARE WE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE AMERICAN FUTURE´S ROLE IN THE WORLD? ARE WE REALLY AWARE THAT THE ELECTION OF BARACK OBAMA WOULD BE A POLITICAL DISASTER NOT ONLY FOR THE USA BUT ALSO FOR THE WORLD?

AS A MATTER OF FACT, OBAMA IS JUST DRIVEN BY THE AFRICAN AMERICAN SELFISH HIDDEN INTERESTS WHILE MISS HILLARY CLINTON AND MR. JOHN MCCAIN REMAIN AS THE ONLY RELIABLE AND TRUSTWORTHY CANDIDATES WHO DESERVE TO REPRESENT AND TO STAND UP FOR THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IN THE WORLD!

THE THREE MOST CONCERNING PROBLEMS FACED BY THE AMERICAN SOCIETY NOW ARE EXACTLY THE SAME THREE MAIN ISSUES TO BE TACKLED BY THE NEXT AMERICAN PRESIDENT. HE WILL NEED TO COPE WITH THESE PROBLEMS AND TO SOLVE THEM IN THE SHORTEST TERM IN ORDER TO STAND UP FOR THE AMERICAN POLITICAL, MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL GROUND IN THE WORLD! THESE PROBLEMS ARE:

1) THE NATO´S FINAL COALITION VICTORY AGAINST THE MUSLIM TERRORISM NETWORK IN THE WORLD; ISLAMIC REMAINING ENEMIES WILL HAVE TO BE KEPT UNDER SEVERE AND TOUGH CONTROL BY NATO´S MILITARY FORCES IN AFGHANISTAN, IN IRAQ AND IN THE STRATEGIC MEDITERRANEAN ISLAND OF CYPRUS;

2) A NEW AMERICAN IMMIGRATION POLICY IN ORDER TO STOP THE ILLEGAL REMITTANCE OF AMERICAN GOODS AND MONEY ABROAD PERFORMED AS AN OUTRAGEOUS ABUSE BY LATIN AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS, IN ORDER TO PUNISH AND TO BANISH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND IN ORDER TO PREVENT FURTHER IMMIGRANTS FROM COMING TO THE USA;

3) THE GROWTH AND EXPANSION OF THE NAFTA AS THE ONLY LEGITIMATE AMERICAN TRADE AGREEMENT. BY THE WAY, MERCOSUR REPRESENTS THE LATIN AMERICAN LEFTIST CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE UNITED STATES BECAUSE MERCOSUR MEMBERS ARE UNITED WITH VENEZUELA, WITH CUBA, WITH BOLIVIA, WITH ECUADOR JUST TO CHALLENGE THE AMERICAN POLITICAL LEADERSHIP, TO THREAT THE AMERICAN COMMERCIAL INTERESTS AND TO REPLACE THE NAFTA BY MERCOSUR AS IF MERCOSUR COULD BE RECOGNIZED AS AN AMERICAN RELIABLE, QUALIFIED AND LEGITIMATE TRADE AGREEMENT! THAT´S WHY CASTRO, CHÁVEZ, MORALES, CORREA AND LULA WILL REMAIN ARROGANT, DEFIANT AND REVENGEFUL AGAINST THE AMERICAN LEGITIMATE LEADERSHIP IN THE WORLD. THAT´S WHY THE POLITICAL AND COMMERCIAL KEY TO WIN THIS COMMERCIAL BATTLE IN AMERICA IS THE NAFTA´S GROWTH AND EXPANSION THROUGH AN AMERICAN / MEXICAN TOUGH, SEVERE AND DEMANDING POLITICAL AND COMMERCIAL ALLIANCE AGAINST MERCOSUR´S CONSPIRACY.
THE NAFTA HAS TO BE A STRONG AND POWERFUL COMMERCIAL ALLIANCE IN ORDER TO STAND UP FOR THE AMERICAN COMMERCIAL INTERESTS AT THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION (W.T.O.)!
DEAR PRESIDENT, I MAKE A STRONG APPEAL FOR EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN; AS FAR AS WE ALREADY KNOW WE ALL NEED TO GET RID OF ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, TO GET FREE FROM LATIN AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS AND TO GET AWAY WITH OBAMA!
PLEASE, LET´S JOIN THE SAME COMMON EFFORT ON KEEPING THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY IN THE RIGHT FAST TRACK NOW! WE NEED TO FIGHT TOGETHER IN ORDER TO REMAIN UNITED ON STANDING UP FOR THE AMERICAN LEGITIMATE LEADERSHIP IN THE WORLD! OTHERWISE IT WILL BE TOO LATE TO REACT AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL BE TROUBLED BY AN UNBEARABLE GOVERNMENT FROM NOW ON!

DOES BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA STAND FOR CHANGE? YES, SURE BUT CHANGE FOR WORSE!!! AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE AMERICAN ELECTION PROCESS IS NOT LEGITIMATE BECAUSE THE CANDIDATE OBAMA IS NOT EITHER QUALIFIED OR ELIGIBLE TO BECOME AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT! WHAT REALLY NEEDS TO CHANGE IS THE AMERICAN ELECTION PROCESS THAT ALLOWS SOMEONE LIKE HIM TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE MOST IMPORTANT NATION IN THE WORLD.

DEAR PRESIDENT, I MAKE A STRONG APPEAL FOR EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN; AS FAR AS WE ALREADY KNOW WE ALL NEED TO GET RID OF ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, TO GET FREE FROM LATIN AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS AND TO GET AWAY WITH OBAMA!
PLEASE, LET´S JOIN THE SAME COMMON EFFORT ON KEEPING THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY IN THE RIGHT FAST TRACK NOW! WE NEED TO FIGHT TOGETHER IN ORDER TO REMAIN UNITED ON STANDING UP FOR THE AMERICAN LEGITIMATE LEADERSHIP IN THE WORLD! OTHERWISE IT WILL BE TOO LATE TO REACT AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL BE TROUBLED BY AN UNBEARABLE GOVERNMENT FROM NOW ON!

DOES BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA STAND FOR CHANGE? YES, SURE BUT CHANGE FOR WORSE!!! AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE AMERICAN ELECTION PROCESS IS NOT LEGITIMATE BECAUSE THE CANDIDATE OBAMA IS NOT EITHER QUALIFIED OR ELIGIBLE TO BECOME AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT! WHAT REALLY NEEDS TO CHANGE IS THE AMERICAN ELECTION PROCESS THAT ALLOWS SOMEONE LIKE HIM TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE MOST IMPORTANT NATION IN THE WORLD.

The Democrats spoke to soon; they should have waited until he took the money. There is no life lower and more contemptible then the members of the Republican Party. If McCain who like "W" cannot win this election fairly they will resort to cheating. This is not the first time a republican political appointee has violated the "Hatch Act". There was a woman working for the GAO or something like that who went around directing her people to help out republican candidates using government funds. We know that they had 10,000s of vote thrown out under the guise of voter fraud in the 2004 election. Karl Rove had an Alabama Governor imprisoned on false charges. These people are scum you scrape off your shoes after walking through cow pasture. It would not be wrong to take physical action against the destroyers of our world.

For more on this story, read the very interesting piece in the June 21st edition of the Toronto Globe and Mail entitled "Heeere's Johnny". According to this account, there were "premium" tables at $5,000 each. The Senator was late to lunch because he had a picture taking session with the "sponsors" of the event. Also according to this story,the McCain security team tried to get Canadian parliamentary reporters out of the way and a female reporter for the Globe and Mail was offered a free lunch if she got out of the way of the cameras, however she refused.

The Republicans and McSame can put any spin on it that they want. This was a fund raiser and a violation of the Hatch Act plain and simple!

Once again, McSame shows he is just like Bush and Chenney. McCain plays under the table with the rich and the special interest groups just like Bush and Chenney. McCain does this for his own benefit looking for ways around and regardless of the law. He is a master at twisting the facts to justify his own actions.

The "Straight Talk Express" is no longer wobbly. It is stuck dead in the mud. Indeed,it has lost all of its wheels!

Yeah right.. Canada knows it will psorper with a Stronger American Workforce and McCain's 3R plan which was leaked months ago proves the point!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JOHN McCAIN'S 3R ECONOMIC PLAN 2008
Abbreviated version

Progressive Candidate John McCain comes through for America with his 3R economic plan.
In the persona of Theodore Roosevelt, McCain's plan just makes sense.

1. RETHINK: America must rethink the global views on what America is capable of in our current state of technology, engineering and the demands that face the world.

"RE-Think" the basic job goals involve the dwindling retirement, health care and social security plans that are failing Americans. With a strong base and a higher Gross Domestic Product (GDP) America has a new bargaining chip in the way we live and the ways we retire.

The framework is already in place through existing laws to make this happen. The Progressive attitude of John McCain to get things done by crossing party lines will resurrect America.

2. REFORM: America must rise to these demands and compete aggressively in a global economy. American people must demand higher quality products and less restricted trade routes for Made in USA components.

The USA will reform its dead manufacturing base to create the most innovative and green-engineered products possible. We will compete in a world market along with other high quality products. Once again, the world needs American success in these new ways of manufacturing.

3. REINVENT: America and Americans must reinvent themselves to reach and maintain these standards and by sheer American ingenuity, control the world's marketplace in the competitive manner, as we have always been proud to be #1. Can you hear Theodore Roosevelt shouting this?

Americans are going back to a 3R-schooling program where they are paid to reinvent their skills and learn new skills to design and lead their personal LLC, Corporation or joint venture company. That's easy enough to comprehend and just as easy to implement. The 3R plan is designed as a six-month rapid advancement system. Graduates may return for additional skill enhancements from time to time, or step up after new advanced training in executive management.

NUTS AND BOLTS of the plan are simple.

Green Engineering firms with actual answers to viable fossil fuel free transportation and climate control for homes and office have products that will save end users billions per year have finally realized why these ideas have always been avoided. Billions of savings equates to millions of lost tax revenue from energy companies.

Here is the John McCain 3R solution.

McCain's 3R is about technical, closely monitored and rapid hands on training from pros to create new pros. Thousands of currently-job-displaced "once leaders in the manufacturing arena" will be asked to train and play instructor rolls in the 3R plan. Paid, of course, as these new leaders will help create a whole new style of prosperous America.

A new guard for Social Security.

While manufacturing is a very important part of this plan, thousands of new businesses must to be created to meet the new surge of 3R manufacturing industries to create a new era of prosperous Americans.
Initial estimates of 1 in 5 students will begin his or her own company and drive even more Americans into a viable lifestyle with real jobs, real benefits and a retirement to look forward to.

All of this can be done without costing taxpayers (or the government) additional funds. America has the means to follow through with John McCain's 3R plan, ready and in place across the USA. The buildings we need sit vacant for the most part. By assuming leases on abandoned stores and factories across America with MC-3R schools and mini-manufacturing training centers, the USA made products can be sold and support the stores. Building owners write off the loss in taxes over a few years!

This is the new place for financial speculators to invest!

The speculators who first drove the economy with mortgage investments and most recently with crude oil investments have a better arena for their investments. America as nation of industrious individuals who want to work and want to succeed will make them huge profits. The supply of eager Americans with ideas and dreams to prosper is limitless.

Although the thousands of new businesses manufacturing USA Made products is exciting enough, the real excitement comes from the massive amount of additional jobs that will be created to provide the new housing, new buildings, new parks, shopping, grocery stores, schools, government outlets and so much more.
McCain's Progressive nature embodies Theodore Roosevelt more than any US presidential candidate in history since the original Rough Rider blazed the greatest era of growth in America.

We need John McCain to lead our nation with the same type of change.

"A McCain spokesman said that while the campaign pays travel costs for the trip, the luncheon, held by the Economic Club of Canada, is not a fundraiser and not a campaign event.

He said the $100-per-person ticket price for the event is to cover the cost of the lunch and will not benefit the campaign."

That redlined my BS detector. How is making a political speech in Canada, and claiming that the campaign was just recouping costs not only a Hatch Act violation but also political fundraising from non-citizens?

Is there a need to constantly try and manipulate facts for everything these days? The lunch was organized by the Economic Council of Canada who are big free traders. The $100 a lunch was to also give them a speech and for some to get a special meeting with McCain later. NOWHERE does it say the money went to McCain in either Canadian article and it says the lunch was organized by the Council and not the Ambassador.Once again some democrats (Obama camp??)puts out false charges and expects everybody to jump on the bandwagon without checking the facts. Unless you can show somewhere that McCain got the funds from the luncheon then these are once again just false charges like others we have heard before from Democrats during this race.
And by the way, learn how to type read since you can't even spell Ottawa properly.

Canada is the most important trading partner that the US has. McCain just wants to shore up his shaky foreign policy credentials, and soak up some Canadian cash for his campaign from a few die-hard conservatives.

However, being seen with McCain will NOT help Stephen Harper's image in Canada. If he's smart, he'll stay away.

As a duel citizen living in Canada, I can tell you this,at a $100. dollar per plate there is money going to someone. The price of gas maybe unstable but rubber chicken has pretty much stayed the same.
McCain can come to Canada and hide behind conservative business associations but it will not change the facts on the ground here. The vast majority of Canadians do not want to see McCain as the President to them it is just more of the same. On the other hand if Obama offered to come to Canada he would draw 1,000's of ordinary Canadians to see him where ever he went. He is hugely popular here as he is throughout the rest of the world.
The whole question of NAFTA and Canada is a dead-ender. NAFTA is no more popular among many Canadians than it is with many Americans, albeit for different reasons. Many seem confused about the effects of NAFTA as it relates to Canada. American plants did not shift to Canada with our strong Union base, they have gone to Mexico,China and other Asian countries as did many Canadian companies.
The division on both sides of the border is over natural resources and environmental standards and many Canadians would agree that those provisions in NAFTA need to be re-tooled.
Bring on Obama that is who Canadians want to meet.

NAFTA did nothing for Canada or the U.S. since the Canadian free trade agreement was already in place. Canada does not pay slave wages, nor harm the environment, nor cause factories to relocate there like Hershey. They are our largest oil supplier and a solid ally in our war against the Taliban and foreign terrorists in the Afghan theater. Their troops are currently routing the Taliban in Helmand. Our country has a lot to learn from the elected officials in Canada that work for the people instead of themselves. God Bless our good neighbors to the north.

McCain may not make it to the November election. If he has more confused moments like Al Qaeda in Iran, the party will not give him the nod. The man has been on intelligence and military committees for years and had to be informed of the Sunni terrorist threat. When questioned by reporters recently, he got on a conference call with Lieberman to answer them. He may be more experienced than Obama, but if he has forgotten what experience has taught, what good is it?

There is an undercurrent in the the Republican party that hums with the name of Senator Chuck Hagel getting the nod at the convention, putting John McCain out to pasture.

The argument that not profiting from a $100 dollar a plate meal proves that the lunch was therefore not political is bizarre. The position made, by some, that the statements of Wilkins and the McCain campaign should be take at face value is simply ludicrous.

This kind of lunch was why the rules exist. Wilkins is a public servant. If he finds that role too restrictive he should resign.

One phone call to any of the organizers of this lunch would have established that this event is not a fundraiser. But apparently Mr. Shear didn't want to ruin a good story by doing any real research. Instead, he sets it up as he said/she said: the Democrats level the charge, the embassy denies. This is shoddy journalism, through and through.

The real story is that the unnamed Democrats Mr. Shear cites are prepared to make accusations without a shred of evidence, and he is prepared to publish them. Is it beyond his beyond to place a phone call to Canada to learn the truth?

Hmmm..Is this payback for the GOP providing the funding that got Conservative Stephen Harper elected PM? Oh no..how could such a thing happen..yet it's widely known that it did. I guess $100 per plate either reflects the decline of the US dollar against the CAN dollar..or they're eatin' pretty good in those executive get-togethers! For the record, Wilkins has had his two cents in on more than one questionable situationthis past year, including the NAFTA memo fiasco last winter, where the Conservatives conveniently leaked a memo, carefully slanted to imply that a conversation with one of Obama's aides had inferred certain things that had not been said! Why then, should we be surprised that McFake is currying "support", indirectly or directly from a foreign power. There we go again, with those pesky Ethics!
