It's been almost a week since the Toronto police officer James Forcillo was found guilty of the attempted murder of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim.
Even though he killed him, and it was murder.
And now there are calls for another police officer to be charged for what he did to Yatim after he was shot.
In my last post I argued that the CBC should fire the Con clown Rex Murphy, for promoting the Energy East pipeline.
While being paid by Big Oil to give speeches glorifying their dubious achievements.
And for attacking Justin Trudeau, and acting like Rona Ambrose's spokesman, on the CBC's flagship news show The National.
Well now in the National Post, Murphy has taken his deranged campaign one step further.
Saturday, January 30, 2016
Once upon a time I used to fly though the air like Peter Pan in search of the remote control, whenever the ghastly Rex Murphy popped up on my big TV.
In a desperate attempt to change the channel, before his oily fumes started pouring out of every orifice, and before that scary bulging eye started following me around the room.
But now I just sit there staring numbly at the screen and wondering: why is that Con teabagger on the CBC? Is this Canada or Trumpville?
And this is just the latest reason why I think he should be fired.

A lot of people in this country seem to believe that when we defeated Stephen Harper we sent the Con vampire to his political coffin, with a wooden stake through his heart.
But they couldn't be more wrong.
The monster may be hiding in the shadows, but he's very much alive, or undead.
And the Cons are still the Harper Party...
Stephen Harper likes to call himself a Christian, and some of his supporters have been known to call him Jesus Harper.
But both claims couldn't be more absurd or more blasphemous.
Harper is too evil to be a Christian. It is just an act designed to appeal to his monstrous satanic base.
And now it seems that his hollow instrument, the so-called Office of Religious Freedom, is about to be destroyed.
Like her leathery leader Rona The Vulture Ambrose, Candice Bergen likes to dress in black.
And with good reason.
She is one of the nastiest Cons in the House of Commons.
Thursday, January 28, 2016
As you know I have been frantically searching for Stephen Harper all over Canada and the United States.
And I've even adjusted my
With a weird smile on his face, several days of stubble, and a baseball cap pulled down over his nose.
But so far no luck.
And no sadly this was not him...

Ever since she was elected interim Queen of the Cons, Rona Ambrose has been claiming that they are the new/nouveau Cons, not the shattered remnants of the Harper Party.
But now that Parliament has returned that is turning out to be just another Big Lie.
With the Cons trying to turn our Parliament into a fascist circus again.
By attacking the Liberals like bats out of hell...
Tuesday, January 26, 2016
As you know I really like this image of Justin Trudeau slowly but surely demolishing Stephen Harper's foul legacy.
And today he took another step in that direction.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his job is to look out for Canada's best interests and not act as a "cheerleader" for various pipeline projects as the previous Conservative government did.
And since we now know for sure that the National Energy Board can't be trusted to enforce safety or environmental regulations.
Monday, January 25, 2016
It's one of the most bizarre verdicts I've ever seen. A Toronto police officer is found guilty of attempted murder for shooting a troubled teenager on a streetcar.
But not guilty of murder.
Even though he killed him.
It's quite the confrontation. Denis Coderre, the blowhard Mayor of Montreal, jackhammering plans for an Energy East pipeline.
Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre announced the city's official opposition to proposed Energy East pipeline project Thursday, saying the potential risks outweigh its possible economic benefits to communities including his.
And Brad Wall, the blowhard oil pimp from Saskatchewan, threatening to declare war on Quebec.
Sunday, January 24, 2016
Lordy. If Donald Trump's head keeps swelling I'm afraid he is going to have to get a new comb over or caterpillar.
For there he was yesterday shooting his mouth off, trumpeting his lead over all the other Republican candidates.
And actually claiming that he could kill someone, and STILL not lose any votes.
Saturday, January 23, 2016
I realize that the Con media in this country is going through some hard times.
One day the sorry slaves who toil in its bowels have a job, the next day they don't.
And of course their bosses are still VERY unhappy that Canadians ignored their advice and elected Justin Trudeau Prime Minister...
Friday, January 22, 2016
For weeks I've been warning that the Con zombies out there are out of control
Spewing hatred in every direction, and even threatening the lives of Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau.
I've been monitoring those Con crazies for years, and I've never seen anything like it.
And if you don't believe me, read Martin Patriquin's story and meet some of them yourselves.
I haven't written a post about Sarah Palin, the redneck from Wasilla, for about eight years.
Back when the one they called The Barracuda was running for Vice President of the United States.
Back in the days when people were taking her candidacy seriously.
And even Maureen Dowd was calling her My Fair Veep.
Thursday, January 21, 2016
As you know I have been urging Justin Trudeau to demolish Stephen Harper's legacy as soon as possible.
Bulldoze it into a smoking heap of rubble.
And because patience is not one of my
But I have to say, that in that regard, yesterday was a very good day.

You might think that Joe Oliver would have stayed missing after the Cons lost the election, and he lost his seat.
Or sought refuge in his private Bay Street Boy's Club...
So he wouldn't have to answer questions about what him and Stephen Harper's oily policies have done to our economy.
But no, now he's everywhere, accusing the Liberals of blowing the surplus that never was.
And going after Justin Trudeau's plan to bring in electoral reform.
Monday, January 18, 2016
I always knew Rona Ambrose was hopelessly incompetent. I knew that she had managed to bungle every job she was ever given.
I knew she made people laugh without trying, and for all the wrong reasons.
But who knew she was a REAL stand-up comedian?
I can only imagine what Stephen Harper must be telling his psychiatrist these days.
But if he's claiming he's still a Great Economist Leader it must be crazy stuff.
As his oily obsession and his rampant incompetence come back to haunt us.
And of course Rona Ambrose also deserves some down time on that shrink's couch.
For her outrageous claim that Kevin O'Leary, would make a great leadership candidate.
Sunday, January 17, 2016
Oh dear, pity poor Rona Ambrose. It's all going horribly wrong. Already.
She may be the interim Queen of the Cons, but she's finding her throne so uncomfortable, she might as well be sitting on the prickly parts.
Party officials have been complaining behind her back that she's doing nothing to stop different factions from fighting to control the rules of the Con leadership race to suit themselves.
They say she's like a rabbit, paralyzed by the deathly stare of a cobra.
But it turns out that Ambrose's real problem may be the elephant, or the monster in the room.
In the last nine years I wrote more than 100 posts about the case of Omar Khadr, because I considered it one of the most shameful episodes in modern Canadian history.
And could never accept that a Canadian child soldier could be tortured and jailed in a place like Guantanamo. And abandoned by his own government.
But this will probably be my last post about him.
Not because the case is over, it isn't. The federal government is still appealing his release on bail.
But because amazingly enough it seems to have had a happy ending.
Saturday, January 16, 2016
Stephen Harper hasn't been seen in public now for almost a month, and almost nobody knows where he is hiding.
Some say he's still in Las Vegas, others say he's been spotted in Mexico.
But he might as well have never left.
Because his ghastly legacy has come back to haunt us.
It tells you a lot about the dilapidated state of the Harper Party, and the lamentable judgment of their hapless interim leader Rona Ambrose.
That just a few days after being criticized by some anonymous party officials for failing to properly organize the Con leadership race, by just standing around doing nothing, and looking stupid.
Something that comes naturally to her...
She would seek to correct that impression by embracing the ghastly hustler Kevin O'Leary.
Friday, January 15, 2016
When Kevin O'Leary announced that he is thinking of running for the leadership of the Harper Party, I thought that most Canadians would shake their heads in disbelief.
Or burst out laughing.
But it seems I was wrong.
Because believe it or not, some in the Con media think he'd make a really great Prime Minister.
Thursday, January 14, 2016
Well now we know why Kevin O'Leary came charging out the other day.
Claiming he was willing to invest a million dollars in Alberta's sagging oil industry if Rachel Notley resigned.
And looking and sounding a lot like Donald Trump.
Because believe it or not, he's thinking of running for the leadership of the Harper Party.
As I'm sure you know, the last year has been Ezra Levant's annus horribilis. Or in his case his anus horribilis.
It's been almost a year since he lost his job when Sun News TV went down like the Titanic.
His tacky Rebel Media site is taking on water fast, and should be joining the Titanic by next Spring at the latest.
So I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that the grotesque hate monger is now so desperate he's suggesting that Justin Trudeau is a secret Muslim.
Wednesday, January 13, 2016
As if Rachel Notley, the decent NDP Premier of Alberta, didn't have enough real problems.
Plunging oil prices, growing unemployment, a flood of death threats from that province's ignorant and violent rednecks.
Now she has another monkey on her back.
The Con clown and jungle capitalist Kevin O'Leary.
Tuesday, January 12, 2016
Uh oh. Move over Michelle Rempel. There's a new star at Rona Ambrose's Con clown circus.
His name is Tony Clement also known as The King of Muskoka.
Or the new shadow minister of Foreign Affairs.
And he couldn't be funnier...
It was amazing to see so many people all over the world saying the same thing yesterday.
Oh no. I didn't even know he was ill. Not the soundtrack of my life.
Not Ziggy Stardust.
Monday, January 11, 2016
As we all know, before he was defeated by the Forces of Light, dirty old King Harper made a number of last minute patronage appointments.
To ensure that his legacy would live on, and that Justin Trudeau wouldn't be able to fully control his own government.
For as Michael Harris writes, he will not let go of the government.
The other day I wrote about how shocked I was to see that Michelle Rempel hadn't said a word, or tweeted a single solitary line, about that horrifying pepper spray attack on a group of Syrian refugees in Vancouver.
And that even though she is the Con's new shadow minister of immigration and REFUGEES, she hadn't condemned the attack, or offered up a word of sympathy.
So today I went back to her Twitter feed to see if the situation had changed.
Only to find myself staring at this ghastly tweet.
Sunday, January 10, 2016
It's just been two months and five days since Justin Trudeau was sworn in as Prime Minister.
But already the Cons, the Con media, and even some some progressives are claiming that he is a total failure.
And while that is to be expected from the shellshocked Cons, and the equally desperate Con media.
I must admit it hurts me to see some progressives repeating the same nonsense.
I'm glad that police in Vancouver are calling it a truly disturbing hate crime.
Vancouver Police Chief Adam Palmer is calling a pepper spray attack outside a welcome event for Syrian refugees a very troubling hate crime and asked the perpetrator to turn himself in.
I'm glad that Justin Trudeau is saying it's not who we are.
But what I also find truly disturbing is the silence of the Cons.
Saturday, January 09, 2016
There couldn't be a more brutish act, or one more disgusting or more cowardly.
Than attacking a group of refugees seeking shelter in Canada.
Men, women, and children.
On their welcome night.
As you know I've been trying to figure out why Stephen Harper has been keeping such a low profile that some are now calling him the invisible man.
And why he hasn't been seen in public since that strange sighting in Las Vegas.
Where he was spotted with the loonie, or the Harper peso, that was also going south in a hurry.
But if Not So Great Leader is practically invisible, so are the shattered survivors of his Harper Party...
Friday, January 08, 2016
He has only been in power for eighty days, but already Justin Trudeau is being caught between the right and the left.
Between the Cons who are enraged at the way he is tearing down their beloved Harperland.
And progressives like Michael Harris, who want him to de-Harperize Canada faster.
If it was Justin Trudeau's happy fate to be able to best represent change at a time when most Canadians were screaming for it.
It is also his unhappy fate to take over a country where Stephen Harper has poisoned the well.
Led the country into the darkness of economic disaster.
Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz says Canada is facing a long and painful fallout from a “seismic shift” in global resource prices that could last up to five years and drain $50-billion a year from the economy.
And populated it with right-wing zombies who are now making threats to kill him.
Thursday, January 07, 2016
Yesterday I tried to explain why I believe it's going to be very hard for the Cons and their friends in the media, to dent Justin Trudeau's popularity.
Or end his honeymoon.
And how polls like this one.
Were driving Cons like Stephen Taylor wild...
Another day has gone by, and Stephen Harper is still missing. There have been more UFO sightings in the last month than there have been of him.
So I'm glad to see the pictures on the milk cartons have been updated to show how desperate he might look today.
But then there were a lot of Canadians looking like that yesterday.
After his ghost or his mummy came back to haunt us.
Wednesday, January 06, 2016
This is how the Cons and their supporters in the MSM like to portray Justin Trudeau.
As a hopelessly idealistic Don Quijote tilting at windmills, with promises that are made to be broken.
And dreams that are too big for Canada.
But what I would say to them is this: why would you make the people of a big country dream so small?
Tuesday, January 05, 2016
Well we still don't know where Stephen Harper is hiding, for there hasn't been a sighting in days.
We don't know whether the man they're now calling Hermit Harper, is holed up in a closet, or living in a car, or getting plastic surgery.
Or living in Ray Kovac's garage, like his Robin once lived in his....
Or whether he is still wandering around Las Vegas, like poor Howard Hughes did after he went crazy.
But what we can say is he's lucky he didn't surface yesterday.
Because that would have been REALLY embarrassing.
The situation couldn't be more dire or more dangerous.
Saudi Arabia's execution of 47 prisoners, including the well known Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr, has set off a firestorm in the region.
It's threatening to lead to an all-out confrontation between the Saudis and the Iranians.
And to make even matters worse, it turns out we're caught up in this madness, because Stephen Harper and his Con clowns didn't know what they were doing.
Monday, January 04, 2016
As we all know, Rona Ambrose can on occasion, and even without realizing it, be quite funny.
Like the time she found herself agreeing with Australia's Stoner Sloth that marijuana makes you stupid.
Because she should know eh?
About the stupid.
And as Michael Harris writes, her war on electoral reform is a real comedy.
