As you know Maxime Bernier likes to portray himself as the hero of the Mad Max movies.
Or at least the extreme libertarian version of that series.
Where the lonesome hero wanders through an apocalyptic landscape dodging Big Government agents who are always trying to tax Canadians to death, or control their minds.
But I see Bernier as the star of a completely different movie.

Well Doug Ford has his bus, he's on the road, and he's now channelling Donald Trump, as only an ape could.
And vowing to go after Kathleen Wynne as Trump went after Hillary Clinton.
So don't be surprised if the mob he calls the "Ford Nation" starts chanting "lock her up, lock her up," at one of his bestial rallies.
But did you know that the ones who are giving him his Team Trump marching orders, are in many cases the former members of a another well known team.

Oh dear, poor Andrew Scheer has that desperate look on his face again. And no wonder, everything is going wrong.
Last night his "emergency pipeline debate" went nowhere, after all he could do was shout "Mr Trudeau build that pipeline!!!!"
Which seemed a bit ridiculous, considering the situation, especially since the Prime Minister is in Europe.
So most of the media didn't bother to cover it.
But if you thought that went badly, his attempt to use Trudeau's India visit to embarrass him, again, was even more of a fiasco.

I see that Doug Ford has unveiled his shiny new bus.
And a shiny new slogan: "For the People."
So he can ride in comfort all over Ontario, giving the people the thumb.
While giving the media the finger.
Because as you may know, he's not giving them a bus to follow him.
So it will be harder to ask Ford any embarrassing questions.
Like do you know what you are doing Meat Loaf?
Or are you making it up as you go along?

It was quite a performance by Donald Trump, one that no doubt made millions of people wonder they would survive him.
For first he went after the former FBI director James Comey, with an early morning tweet storm yesterday, that had to be seen to be believed.
After Comey in a new book made it clear what he thinks of Trump.
Ever since Justin Trudeau's trip to India was made to look like a disaster by the shabby stooges in the Con media, Andrew Scheer has gone crazy with Indian fever.
He's still trying to make the India story sound like it's the biggest story in Canada.
Even though it died of old age weeks ago...
But so desperate is Scheer to try to revive it, and get some of that poll boosting buzz back, he has been scouring every newspaper and supermarket tabloid in India hoping to find some evidence to use against the Prime Minister.
So you can imagine how horribly excited he must have been, when he thought he had caught Trudeau being humiliated by the Indian government.

During the last election campaign I used to have fun portraying Stephen Harper under assault by our superior social media.
And that superiority helped us bring down the Harper regime, by exposing their lies, helping to get out the vote, and by humiliating Great Closet Leader over and over again.
I loved it, there's nothing I like more than seeing bullies deflated.
But of course the Cons hated it, and vowed that they would never allow that to happen again.
And that this time THEY would be the Lords of Social Media.

It's a truly terrifying moment in human history. Donald Trump is vowing a massive missile strike on Syria.
And taunting the Russians.
While we wait to see whether Israel and Iran will declare war on each other and trigger an all out war in the Middle East. Or even the Third World War.
And to make matters worse, if that's possible, Trump has never sounded so crazy.
I know this may be hard to believe, but after attacking Stephen Harper almost every day for almost ten years, my memories of him and his grim decade of darkness had started to fade.
And I almost felt sorry for him.
After all I said to myself, he's not the Great Leader he once was. People change, time heals almost everything.
I even started to wonder whether I had been too hard on him. Can you believe that?
But then I saw this.

It's easy to forget that the Con leadership race that Andrew Scheer won, was tainted by widespread allegations of vote rigging and membership fraud.
And that even a few days before the final vote, Maxime Bernier was leading the other candidates, and Scheer wasn't even in contention.
But somehow he managed to cross the finishing line ahead of Bernier and his boys from the Beauce.
And now a bitter Bernier is claiming he knows exactly what happened.

I watched the vigil for the Humboldt Broncos last night, and although I'm not religious, I still found it extremely moving.
For it is a very sad story, and it couldn't be more Canadian. Buses roaring through the night carrying young players to their next game many, many, miles away.
And sometimes not making it.
The hockey sticks on the porch.
That mean something to us, in a country where a prime minister and his son can sit in the crowd like any other citizens.
And Justin Trudeau didn't need to say anything, to let the people of Humboldt know that he and we were with them.
It was all so humbly and so wonderfully Canadian, until I saw this.

It's now a recurring nightmare. The hellish vision of Doug Ford swinging from the CN tower and bellowing like King Kong:
"I'm da Premier of Ontario!!!!"
Now that the polls show him apparently heading for a gorilla of a majority.
And as if that wasn't bad enough, then there's this other poll suggesting that men are mostly responsible for what would be an act of collective madness.
Which I found even more disturbing.
For only that could explain a front page like this one...

As long as I can remember I've always considered the Cons to be more American than Canadian.
And since Andrew Scheer became their leader I've often wondered whether his party has been receiving money from some of the sinister billionaires who have been bankrolling right-wing groups all over the United States.
For who can forget how he tried to undermine our country at the NAFTA negotiations, for crass political reasons.
And now one of his good buddies has been caught with his grubby hands in an American cookie jar.

As we all know Donald Trump is becoming more and more unstable.
As the voices in his head get louder and louder.
I dare anyone to read this story and not conclude that he is losing his marbles.
And of course we all know that nobody in his cabinet is safe.
You know when I stare at that picture of Andrew Scheer, even I find it hard to believe that he is a mortal threat to Canada and its values.
I mean look at him.
He just looks like a nerd who would embarrass this country beyond recognition if he ever became Prime Minister.
A Mr Ding Dong if ever there was one.
But then I remember he is a creepy religious fanatic, who just can't stop lying.
It looked like some kind of low budget religious TV program, with a host and a guest who were made for each other.
Faith Goldy, the monstrous Christian Crusader and white supremacist, and Andrew Scheer, the creepy religious fanatic and alt-right sympathizer who would be Prime Minister.
Sitting in one of Ezra Levant's ratty Rebel studios, all but swapping spit, and talking about all kinds of alt-righty things.
From freedom of speech i.e. freedom to hate, to duck hunting.

As we all know the Con media's assault on Justin Trudeau during his trip to India was something to behold.
Relentless, vicious, and since most of the Con media covered it from Ottawa and Toronto, abysmally ignorant of what was really going on in India.
And hyped to the point of absurdity.
But our shabby, shuffling Con stooges did do Justin some damage, by claiming that he had SHAMED us in the eyes of the world !!!
Which was also nonsense, but because it's Canada, it had some of the dumbest hosers in the land running around shouting things like "Jesus Christ in a hotdog bun, we've been HUMILIATED !!#@!
And since it worked so well, and gave Andrew Scheer such a boost, they're now calling him Little Rocket Man, or the Flying Messiah.
The Con media is doing it again.
As we all know Donald Trump likes to rant and rave about the so-called "fake news," even though he produces ninety per cent of it himself.
And it seems the right-wing Sinclair Broadcast Group, that owns more TV stations in the U.S. than any other company, shares that view.
And ordered its news programs to deliver the same speech to its millions of viewers.

As I'm sure you know, I've been portraying Donald Trump as a hog as long as I can remember.
I realize that there are other names one could call that misogynist, that bigot, that dirty old man.
But hog, with apologies to real pigs who are better than him, always seemed right to me.
So you can imagine how happy I was to see the latest cover of New York magazine.

Andrew Scheer claims to be a great Canadian and a great Christian. Not necessarily in that order.
And his Easter card has a sinister looking cross on it big enough to crucify us all.
Or at least crucify those who offend him and his bloodthirsty Godzilla the most.
You know, liberated women, Muslims, LGBT Canadians, environmentalists, drug users, atheists, and of course the Great Satan Justin Trudeau, for whom Hell is too good.
But sadly for Scheer, he may have all the qualities of a religious fanatic, but he's no model Christian.

As we all know, Andrew Scheer has been trying to keep the fake India story alive long after it rolled over and died.
And recently even disrupted our parliament with an absurd and incredibly costly filibuster...
Claiming that the Liberals are engaged in some kind of sinister cover-up.
When the only thing sinister about about any of this is Scheer's willingness to make a mockery out of our democracy for crass political purposes.
But now Schmear is going to get a taste of his own medicine
As you probably know, I honestly believe that Doug Ford is unfit to lead anything, let alone the province of Ontario.
And that if that brutish Con clown ever does become Premier, he might bring down the whole country.
While making us look like Trumpland North, just smaller and even more ignorant.
So the rest of the civilized world can laugh at us, and think of Canada, again, as a primitive place populated by rubes and rednecks.
Not the cool place they thought we were, briefly.
For sadly Ford really doesn't know anything about anything, and he just proved that again.

I got a chance to watch most of Power and Politics yesterday, and although I was reasonably impressed by its new host Vassy Kapelos, the editorial direction of the program itself was an absolute disaster. As usual.
Yet another example of either total incompetence and/or naked bias.
And one more example of why so many disappointed Canadians now call the CBC, the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation.
For why on earth would that panel debate whether Bill Morneau should apologize for calling Lisa Raitt a "neanderthal?"
When he never did.

For months the ghastly Con clown Pierre Poilievre has been going after Justin Trudeau for daring to take a vacation on the Aga Khan's island.
And accusing him of acting unethically, as only he could.
But now the annoying little clown has been revealed to be a monstrous hypocrite,
And the Junket King of 2017.
Nine years ago I made a short YouTube video called Lisa and the Losers. And I must say Lisa Raitt hasn't changed a bit.
She's on another losing streak, and it could be her worst.
First she lost the race to replace Stephen Harper. Who she had tried so hard to impress.
Then she lost her chance to run for the leadership of the Ontario PC party.
So she became co-chair of the Caroline Mulroney campaign, only to lose AGAIN !!!!
And now, sadly, she may be losing control of herself.

I'm sure that by now most people have heard of the young Canadian Christopher Wylie, who blew the whistle on the Cambridge Analytica, and Facebook data mining scam.
And since Wylie once did some work for the Liberals, a few days ago Andrew Scheer was loudly demanding that Justin Trudeau explain any connection he might have to him.
But no longer. Now Scheer is strangely muted, and with good reason.
For as the old saying goes, people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
And the Cons are the ones who have something to hide.

Well it finally happened. Donald Trump has been humiliated beyond recognition.
And they are laughing at him all over the world.
The porn star Stormy Daniels has told her story to Anderson Cooper, and it turns out to be a combination of a low budget porn movie and The Sopranos.

Before the March For Our Lives began, I knew it was going to be an extraordinary event.
Because those young Americans had already impressed me with the way they had confronted the horror of gun violence.
And the way they had turned sorrow into resistance.
I also knew by the way the NRA crazies were screaming, that the kids were making an impression on them, more powerful than any weapon.
But who could have imagined something like this?
Saturday, March 24, 2018
They were still building the stage yesterday evening as the sun went down on Washington.
But today hundreds of thousands of students and their supporters will be there taking part in the March for Our Lives.
Their message for the politicians couldn't be clearer.
Andrew Scheer was without a doubt the worst Speaker of the House of Commons in modern Canadian history.
A Speaker so biased, so incompetent, and so depraved, that he allowed his fellow Cons to make a mockery out of our Parliament.
Cutting off debate, heckling and howling like beasts, stomping around like bullies, defecating on our values and traditions, until the Commons resembled nothing less than a Roman or fascist circus.
And now Scheer has shown his contempt for Parliament again.

Well so much for the theory that Donald Trump could be controlled by saner men than him.
First he had his faithful minion, John Kelly, fire his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, while he was on the toilet.
Now he's flushed his National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster.
And maybe our last chance of surviving Trump's deranged presidency.
I'm always glad to get back to Canada, even after the shortest trips abroad. Especially at this time of the year, when if you bundle up it almost feels like Spring in The Great White North.
And at Sugar Beach in my neighbourhood, if you've got a good imagination, you can almost dream of summer.
But this time it seems different, there's a chill in the air, and I can't help thinking I must be crazy to be living in Ontario.
Where, as I'm sure you know, a scary ape is running wild.

Pity poor Andrew Scheer. The Con media has stopped attacking Justin Trudeau for a moment, so they can go after the NDP's Jagmeet Singh.
Which is bad for the Cons, because they want the NDP strong enough to split the progressive vote.
But it doesn't really matter.
The shrilly little scribblers managed to make such an absurd fuss over Trudeau's visit to India.
They have given Scheer and his Cons, their biggest boost ever.
In one of my last posts I wondered how any sane Canadian could vote for a bestial Con ape like Doug Ford.
And whether we should call those who support him the ugly Canadians.
I pointed out that Ford was both intellectually and emotionally unfit to be the leader of anything, let alone the Premier of Canada's most powerful province.
But what I forgot to mention is how the rest of the world would react.
Or what they would think of us for electing such a clown.
There is no man Donald Trump fears more than Robert Mueller, the special counsel who could have him evicted from the White House, and even sent to the Big House.
He's the recurring nightmare who makes Trump wake up screaming.
Which explains why until this weekend, the cowardly Trump hadn't dared criticize him.
But after whacking Andrew McCabe, the deputy FBI director, one day before he was due to retire, Trump is in a frigging frenzy.
And now he's going after Mueller, like a maniac, or a werewolf...
