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...
I must admit that I never paid too much attention to Doug Ford until recently. I just saw him as the lesser half of the ghastly Ford Brother's Comedy and Horror show that almost tanked Toronto.
A political thug who tries to intimidate anyone who doesn't agree with him.
A millionaire who claims he's fighting the "elites" who he defines this way...
Doug Ford, the new leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, on who he defines as “elites.” Tonight on The Agenda, at 11pm. #onpoli pic.twitter.com/sx7vwyeVo0— The Agenda | TVO (@TheAgenda) March 17, 2018
And is, as you can see, a ghastly Con clown, who if he lost another couple of IQ points would have to be watered rather than fed.
But of course, now I have to take him seriously.
Saturday, March 17, 2018
When I last checked out Paul Godfrey, Postmedia's Big Boss, he was cursing Justin Trudeau, and demanding money to bail out his sinking operation.
And his frantic employees were running around, or splashing around, desperately trying to please him.
Which is the only way to explain this story.
It's a scary sight, but the Trump White House is starting to look a lot like the last days in the Fuhrer bunker.
With the Orange Fuhrer raging like a madman, and firing people left and right.
Everybody in that sweaty bunker wondering who is next?
And nobody able to feel safe.

For months our ratty Con media has tried to damage Justin Trudeau, and diminish his status abroad.
And of course some like the miserable Andrew Scheer have gone even further...
But luckily that treasonous Trumpling is only negotiating with others in his own mind.
And it's just been revealed that when Justin met Donald he made the president look like a little man.
He talked up a storm after the Stoneman Douglas high school massacre. He talked about raising the age you can buy certain weapons. He said he wasn't afraid of the NRA.
But sadly Donald Trump WAS afraid of the NRA, and he folded like a cheap suit.
On Sunday night, Trump unveiled his proposal on guns in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting that left 17 people dead. Guess what was left out of that proposal? Yup -- nothing on raising the age limit on the purchase of some types of weapons.
Claiming that his little hands are tied, when they are not. And that the public was against the idea, when in fact they favour it more than he does.
In a CNN/SSRS poll conducted late last month, 71% said they supported raising the age limit to 21 to buy any sort of gun -- a proposal that goes beyond even what Trump was advocating for in the open meeting he held with members of Congress on guns earlier this month.
So much for President Chicken.

David Akin has always been one of the shabbiest members of our grotesque Con media.
Once he used to inhale Ezra Levant's farts at Sun TV News, until the farts caught fire, and it went down in flames.
But it seems old habits die hard, and now he spends his days looking for any excuse to attack Justin Trudeau.
And I mean ANY excuse.

We already knew that Doug Ford arranged to get anointed in a church to solidify the support of social conservatives.
We knew that he has promised to make it harder for young women to get an abortion, harder for LGBT kids to be safe in our schools, and that the thought of all that young meat had the religious fanatics howling like a pack of hungry wolves,
And we knew that his faithful beasts rewarded him by making the leader, or the Big Boss of the Ontario Trump Party, by casting the decisive votes in his favour
But who knew that they would howl so loudly?
Monday, March 12, 2018
Well he's now officially the leader, or the Boss of Bosses, of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario.
After complaining about "serious irregularities" poor old Christine Elliott has hurriedly surrendered.
“After completing my review, I am confident in the results. I extend my congratulations to Doug Ford on a hard-fought campaign.”
And Doug "Meat Head" Ford, Brother of Robbie, has emerged the winner of a grubby Con contest that he lost, but somehow won.
The tussle over the election results arose after Elliott won both the popular vote as well as 64 ridings, compared to Ford’s 60 on the third ballot — yet still lost the race.
But who can blame the shattered Elliott? No doubt she can read the writing on the wall, or see the horse's head of her political career lying at the end of the bed.
Or hear the voice of Mike "Big Mike" Harris calling for party unity.

I know I predicted that the Ontario PC leadership race would be a Con clown show, and it was.
Their convention was a total disaster.
It dragged on for hours with no result. Nobody knew what was happening.
And then they had to tell everybody to leave, because the room had been booked for a bodybuilding show.
Which went down like a lead balloon, with the enraged Cons booing their own party officials.
Saturday, March 10, 2018
I never did understand, and never will, how Donald Trump could boast of grabbing women by their private parts, act like a sexist pig, and a pervert.
And still be elected president of the United States of America.
It's so depressing, and so infuriating, and the stench of corruption burns the nostrils.
But it seems that justice may still be divine.
For the Ballad of Stormy Daniels is now pounding in his ears again.

Justin Trudeau has always known how to handle Donald Trump better than any other world leader, with the possible exception of Vladimir Putin.
He knows how to use his charm to disarm him. He knows how to avoid the grip of a bully.
He knows how to return the favour, and squeeze Trump's tiny hands like a rubber ball.
And yesterday, Trudeau was tested again.
Thursday, March 08, 2018
I wasn't sure I had enough material to write even a short post about day three of Andrew Scheer's Great Con Clown Tour of London.
And his desperate attempt to land a big league photo-op, with someone famous, or just important.
Only to fail, again and again.
But Scheer does have something to celebrate these days. For while the Con media is failing to ask him what exactly he's doing in London.
It seems that its hysterical coverage of Justin Trudeau's visit to India has worked.
And Trudeau has been damaged.
Wednesday, March 07, 2018
As I'm sure you remember, when we last left Andrew Scheer, he was standing outside the mother of all parliaments desperately trying to get a photo-op with Theresa May.
On Day One of his Great Con Tour of Britain, designed to fool the millions of Canadians who still know almost nothing about him, into thinking he was a great statesman.
As well as a Great Economist Leader who was there to lay the foundations for a free trade deal, even though the foundations had already been laid by May and Justin Trudeau.
Which is when I started to worry that this trip could be so embarrassing, that by the time it was over we'd all be wearing paper bags over our heads.
And sure enough, on Day Two the humiliation continued.
Tuesday, March 06, 2018
It's a horrible image, and a scary one. Andrew Scheer wandering around in the ruins of post-Brexit Britain.
Wearing his Brexit hat, and celebrating what he calls its "newfound independence."
While posing as our next Prime Minister.
And claiming he's there to lay the groundwork for a free trade deal.
Andrew Scheer is off to London to start laying the groundwork for his pledge to negotiate a free trade agreement with the United Kingdom should he become prime minister.
Even though the Trudeau government is already doing that, as the Minister of International Trade gleefully reminded him.

Ever since the Con media ganged up to go after Justin Trudeau and his budget like a pack of rabid rats, I've been wondering what could have triggered such a frenzied
orgy of naked bias.
For it was frenzied, it was deeply disturbing, I had never seen anything like it. It was like the old white men of the parliamentary press gang had been overcome by some strange musky fever.
And were now humming sympathetically, or rutting prematurely, channelling the toxic Trudeau hate of the religious fanatic Andrew Scheer...
And doing all they could to make him Prime Minister.
So I really needed to know what was this madness? And from what dark or idiot place was it coming from?
Sunday, March 04, 2018
We don't hear much from Michelle Rempel these days. Ever since her political sugar daddy Stephen Harper faded to black, or blue, her paint has been peeling off too.
And she's not happy.
Once she was a rising star, or at least that's what the Con media said. And she was in the news all the time
But these days she gets very little face time in Question Period.
And her Twitter feed is a shadow of what it once was, mostly because she has blocked so many Canadians from reading it.

A few months ago, Hamish Marshall, the Rebel co-founder who is now the Con's campaign manager, addressed the annual gathering of uber right-wingers at the Manning Centre.
And told them that if the Harper Party was ever going to return to power, it needed to regain the support of ethnic communities it had lost during the last election campaign.
But his new boss and fellow Rebel groupie Andrew Scheer clearly wasn't listening.
For in his desperate attempt to dump on Justin Trudeau's trip to India, with the help of his Con media groupies.
He may have just shot himself in the foot, and further reduced his slim chances of winning the next election.
He's shown signs of cracking up before. His shrinking inner circle claims he's still the same old Donald Trump.
But others say something is happening to him. And that he's never looked or sounded so crazy. And I see what they mean.
He's threatening to impose punishing tariffs on steel and aluminum products, even though that could trigger a massive trade war, and bring down the global economy.
But he's not worried because he believes "trade wars are good and easy to win."
His good buddy Vladimir Putin is threatening the U.S. with a new generation of nuclear weapons, and even threatening to nuke his Mar-A-Lago home.
But Trump is pretending he didn't hear that, and hasn't said a word about it.
Robert Mueller and his FBI posse are closing in on him and his crime family.
But this is the first thing Donald Trump did when he woke up yesterday morning.
Friday, March 02, 2018
It was never as torrid an affair as many people imagined. The two political thugs were forced to admire each other from afar.
But it was an affair. Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin slathered praise all over each other.
While I, like so many others I'm sure, just hoped that the two men would stare into each others eyes, and agree to NOT blow us up.
And of course Trump assured us that if anyone could make a deal with Putin he could, because he knew more about diplomacy than the diplomats. Or was it the generals?
But sadly, and as usual, he was wrong.
And now this bully bromance could end really badly. Not with a whimper, but a bang or a BOOM.
Thursday, March 01, 2018
Ever since the Liberal government tabled its new budget, Andrew Scheer has been looking distinctly under the weather.
Or as one might say a little less delicately, looking like a man losing his marbles.
But while we can all understand how he feels. The new budget is a masterful political document that will boost Justin Trudeau's already very good chance of winning the next election.
Scheer's behaviour can only be described as bizarre.
