Donald Trump Surrenders To Justin Trudeau. Again.

Donald Trump tried to bully Justin Trudeau from the moment they first met.

And in early August he tried again, by slapping tariffs on Canadian aluminum.

But if he thought he could bully Trudeau and this country, and get away with it, he was sadly mistaken.

Because (most) Canadians and their leader don't intimidate easily.

Why I Want Trudeau's Throne Speech To Trigger An Election

The other day I went out for a bike ride, and at the end of my street came across Justin Trudeau.

He was attending an event to announce a new loan program for black owned businesses.

But all any of the ratty members of the Con media wanted to know, was whether he was planning an early election.

And this is what Trudeau had to say about that.

Erin O'Toole's Shadow Cabinet From Hell

It's an absolute freak show. A real fascist circus, where Erin O'Toole tries to fool Canadians into believing that he's really a nice guy.

While the Con clowns in the media lick him like a lollipop, and would have us believe that he's not just a nice guy, he's also compassionate. 

When in fact he is neither.

Erin O'Toole's Fraudulent Make Over and the Killer Cons

It's a truly disgusting spectacle.The Cons and their shabby stooge media are going all out to try to portray Erin O'Toole as a really nice guy.

With some in the Con media so desperate to make him look good, it won't be long before they whip out their ShamWows and start polishing his shiny bald head. 

But of course, they can't fool me, because I know that O'Toole is not what he wants to make us believe.

He's a shameless opportunist, a third-rate Trump impersonator, who likes or liked to be called True Blue O'Toole.

What Might Donald Trump Do If He Loses?

By now it should be obvious that Donald Trump is not going to accept an election result unless he wins.

For he knows what might happen to him if he loses.

So a high level group of politicians, civil servants, media experts, and strategists decided to build a series of war games to try to figure out what might happen.

And some of the results were terrifying.

Erin O'Toole and the SoCon Trap

It's a horrible image. Erin O'Toole preening himself in a mirror, and suggesting decent  people might want to join his Bigot Party.

But he knows that a lot of Canadians don't know him from a hole in the wall, and that he must define himself before his political enemies define him first.

So he's trying to convince people that he's a nice guy, and definitely NOT Andrew Scheer.

But the more things change, the more they don't.

And I'm sure Scheer is loving this one.

Could Street Violence Lead To A Trump Victory?

With just over two months to go before the election, Donald Trump is clearly feeling the heat.

He must be finally realizing that he could lose, and end up in a jail cell for all his crimes against America.

So over the weekend, he fired off a barrage of tweets which only served to show how desperate he must be.

Erin O'Toole and the Con Trump Cult

The other night as I watched Donald Trump's acceptance speech I was struck by how many words Erin O'Toole has borrowed from him.

Words and phrases like "Take back Canada" "cancel culture" and many others. 

It made me wonder why O'Toole would want to be Trump's parrot?  

But it does explain why he wants to dismember the CBC.

Donald Trump and Nuremberg Night in America

It was a Donald Trump production from start to finish. His Nuremberg moment on the south lawn of the White House.

It had more flags than even Leni Riefenstahl would have wanted, and more Trumpanzees not wearing masks than decency demanded, chanting "Four More Years, Four More Years."

And then there was the depraved Orange Fuhrer spouting even more lies than usual out of every orifice.

Covid-19 And The Triumph of Team Canada

For months the Cons and their shabby NDP and Bloc stooges attacked Justin Trudeau like a pack of rabid hyenas, in a desperate effort to try to undermine Team Canada's war on Covid-19.

So they could blame Trudeau for all the lives lost.

They were aided and abetted by our foul Con media, that smeared our decent prime minister over and over again, with one fake scandal after the other.

With the exception of the American owned National Post no media outlet smeared Trudeau more, and did more damage to Team Canada, than did the Globe and Mail.

So this must really have hurt.

The Con Balloon Man and the Social Conservatives

In my last post I looked at how Erin O'Toole is trying to change his image.

Trying to pretend that although he was elected leader by far right extremists and religious fanatics, he's not like them.

Or rather he is like them, but he's also more moderate than Andrew Scheer. And a really nice guy.

Which is why I've started calling him Balloon Man, because he's so full of hot air.

Considering the painful position he's in...

The Ugly Two Faces Of Erin O'Toole

It was Erin O'Toole's first full day as Con leader, and he wasted no time trying to change his image, and trying to convince Canadians that they can trust him.

Only to end up showing decent people why they must NEVER trust him.

For after spending months appealing to far right extremists and social conservatives, and owing his victory to them.

This was outrageous.

Has Anyone Seen The Fake WE Scandal?

Every day for months the Cons and their NDP and Bloc stooges went after Justin Trudeau over the fake WE scandal.

With the revolting stooge media calling it the biggest scandal EVER.

They managed to damage his standing in the polls, despite all the excellent work they had done fighting the pandemic.

But that was then and this is now.

True Blue O'Toole and the Con Clown Convention

It was a horror show that began with a comedy show, when the clowns at the Con leadership convention couldn't even count the votes.

So those watching had to wait for six hours for the results, while our shabby media did their best to fill, and tried to pretend it wasn't an absolute farce. 

Which sadly revealed both their bias and their mediocrity. 

But about an hour before the results started to dribble out, the comedy show suddenly turned into a real horror show.

Andrew Scheer's Last Desperate Hours

I never expected to write a post on Andrew Scheer's last day in office. I thought after more than two years of attacking him on an almost daily basis  I was done with him.

And since I am working on a farewell video, and I have so much material I don't know where to start, I thought I would just try to ignore him.

But I just couldn't.

Jack Layton and the Message of Hope

It's hard to believe that it's now been nine years since Jack Layton died. It seems so long ago, yet I remember that day so vividly.

I was up early that day, and as I biked down by the lake where Jack liked to go biking, the sun came up a brilliant orange, and I knew he was gone.

But I'll never forget him, or his love for life, and his fighting spirit.

Justin Trudeau's Exciting New Deal

Justin Trudeau was already going to be known as a great Canadian prime minister.

The way he defeated first Stephen Harper, and then Andrew Scheer, and the magnificent way he has managed the pandemic have earned him his place in history.

But what he is working on now, could make him the GREATEST prime minister ever.

Pierre Poilievre and the Skeleton in the Closet

It's an intriguing Canadian political mystery. Why did Pierre Poilievre suddenly drop out of the Conservative leadership race?

He was a front runner, and the darling of the Con base. He had been campaigning hard for the job, he had the organization and the money.

But just a few days before he was about to announce his candidacy he suddenly quit, citing family reasons. 

I never believed that, and now I have become aware of another possible reason, and it's truly shocking.

Covid-19 and the Smoking Gun

I was happy to be able to spend the last few days of my vacation on the Toronto islands, and go swimming for the first time this summer.

And although I was supposed to be in Scotland, visiting my parents.

And had been looking forward to getting far away from Canada, and trying to forget the horror of Covid-19, by breathing in the fresh air of the North Sea.

On a beach like this one, not far from my highland home.

But even if I had been able to go, I would have known that feeling wouldn't last long,

Because no matter how far you go, you can't get away from this monstrous killer.

For it's still all around us, it will be with us for years. And because not enough Canadians are wearing masks, or are acting like lunatics... 

It's surging again, even in places like British Columbia. 

And this fall and winter could be its most murderous season ever.

As for me my conscience is clear. My friends and I have been fighting the beast for months. 

And I've also done my best to convince people I know, and even total strangers, why Covid-19 is a deadly threat.

I carry pictures like this one of a lung ravaged by Covid around on my mobile...

As well as this picture of a tiny alveolus or air sac where you can see little blood clots sprouting like mushrooms.

Getting ready to set sail around the body, and damage  brains and/or hearts 

But most of all I have warned them about this smoking gun. 

Skeptics of the notion that the coronavirus spreads through the air — including many expert advisers to the World Health Organization — have held out for one missing piece of evidence: proof that floating respiratory droplets called aerosols contain live virus, and not just fragments of genetic material.

Now a team of virologists and aerosol scientists has produced exactly that confirmation of infectious virus in the air.

Because it changes EVERYTHING.

A research team at the University of Florida succeeded in isolating live virus from aerosols collected at a distance of seven to 16 feet from patients hospitalized with Covid-19 — farther than the six feet recommended in social distancing guidelines.

And makes wearing masks even more important.

But what chance do I and others have to change any minds, when so many Canadians are so deliberately and proudly ignorant? 

And most of them are filthy Cons:

Political affiliation is also correlated with a person’s categorization in the Index. Past CPC voters are four-times more likely to be Cynical Spreaders than those who voted for the Liberal Party or New Democratic Party in 2019.

Who not only satisfied with trying to destroy this country with their ghastly fake scandals, are now trying to kill as many people as possible.

And that's where I'll leave it, with this final warning.

Unless we can flatten the curve, and the filthy Cons, tens of thousands of Canadians could soon be taking a trolley to the morgue...

I hope and pray that won't happen, but from what I know and see I can't see how it can be avoided.

I can't see how anyone with a serious respiratory problem is going to survive for long.

And yes, if it does happen, it will have been  preventable...

I hope all the readers of this blog are safe, and I just want to say I'm happy to be back with you.

Please enjoy the last days of summer, because it's dying too.

And it like life itself, is too precious to be wasted...

Andrew Scheer's Foul Legacy of Hate

In my last post I looked at some of the ways Andrew Scheer poisoned politics in Canada, during his two years as Con leader.

How he debased our parliament with his bigotry, his ugly attack ads, his never-ending lies, his American values.

And of course how his obsessive hatred for Justin Trudeau couldn't have been more diseased or more disturbing.

Or more dangerous.

Andrew Scheer's Monstrous Last Question Period

I went to a lot of trouble to make sure I didn't miss Andrew Scheer's last Question Period as Con leader.

I wondered whether on this last day he might show some class, and raise himself out of the gutter where he has spent the last two years smearing Justin Trudeau.

But alas, the miserable Schmear monger was not capable of that.

And it was just another horror show.

Andrew Scheer's Pathetic Last News Conference

When I put on the TV to check the weather forecast this morning, I got a nasty shock. For there was Andrew Scheer looking even more ugly than usual.

He had a strange look in his eyes, and he was ranting and raving about the fake WE scandal, as only a Con, or a DipperCon, or a member of our shabby media could.

But just as I was about to change the channel, Scheer stunned me by announcing that this would be his last news conference as Con leader.

And although he tried hard, he couldn't conceal his disappointment.

Will Justin Trudeau Seize The Chance To Remake Canada?

The day Justin Trudeau won the 2015 election was the day I first began to believe in the possibility of real change.

It was like coming out of the darkness into the light, after the horror of the Harper years.

And although I was not disappointed, I'm now hoping that the horror of the pandemic may give Trudeau a chance to take that real change even further.

Justin Trudeau and the Ratty Con Media

As I'm sure you know, I have long complained about the growing influence of our ratty Con media, and the way it has helped turn our politics into a sewer, ever more grubby, ever more American.

It hasn't been easy trying to convince people that the way our shabby media speaks with one right-wing voice threatens our democracy.

A lot of people can't see the forest for the trees. And even some of my friends believed that I was exaggerating.

But not any longer.

Donald Trump and the Unravelling of America

Donald Trump is starting to panic. He can see the writing on the wall, and he now realizes that he is heading for defeat in November. 

So he is now trying to buy votes anyway he can, and promising that only he can make America great again.

But it's a little, or a lot too late for that.

The Fake WE Scandal and the DipperCon Monster

It's been that kind of holiday. I should have been in Scotland running wild in the highlands, but instead I'm practically a prisoner in Toronto.

Yesterday I was planning to go and do a little kiteboarding on the other side of the island, but fell asleep in my hammock, and missed the boat.

Then just as I was about to board another boat, this monster came along.

The Fake Scandal and the Desperation Of Andrew Scheer

I knew the fake WE scandal wouldn't stand the test of time. I knew it would crumble like a sand castle, as the truth caught up with it.

Starting with the moment Justin Trudeau testified at Pierre Poilievre's ugly little star chamber, and made the Cons and their NDP stooges look like a bunch of goons, who would destroy a highly respected children's charity just to try to destroy him.

For it was easy to see that Trudeau's statement had taken the air out of the fake scandal.

All you had to do was look at how these three members of the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation reacted seconds after Trudeau had finished speaking.

Pierre Poilievre and the Death of the Fake Scandal

I wasn't looking forward to watching Justin Trudeau appear before the Commons Justice Committee.

I knew that Pierre Poilievre and his ugly stooge Charlie Angus were out for blood, determined to make a fake scandal sound like a real one.

And after the way they had both teamed up to smear poor Margaret Trudeau the day before, I knew they were capable of anything.

But as it turns out, I shouldn't have worried.

The Monkey Court and the Day the NDP Died

I knew the Finance Committee hearing into the so-called WEgate scandal was going to be a kangaroo court, or something even worse.

For the very simple reason, there is no scandal.

WE Charity co-founders Marc and Craig Kielburger emerged from a four-hour grilling by opposition MPs tonight saying they did not stand to gain financially from agreeing to run the Liberal government's $900 million student grant program — and insisting they did not exploit their ties with the Trudeau family to secure the deal. 

Just two decent young Canadians trying to save their well loved children's charity, from dirty old men like these.

Old pols like Charlie Angus and  Pierre Poilievre, who would destroy a kid's charity just to get at Justin Trudeau.

Or worse go after poor old Margaret Trudeau for the same reason.

Which made me really angry...

No decent person can deny that Angus and Poilievre behaved like fascist pigs. They treated the Kielberger brothers like criminals.They berated and insulted them, they interrupted their answers again and again.

Even the Chair couldn't control them.    
And although I was happy to see that the brothers were able to handle themselves with class and dignity throughout their four hour ordeal.

What shocked me was how many Cons were cheering on the NDP, like they were now their farm team, or little orange brothers.

So much so that even the well known Con Stephen Taylor, once the master of the Blogging Tories, suggested that Charlie and Pierre should celebrate their appalling behaviour.

Or suggested that the boring Peter Julian is us ALL...

Instead of just another Con stooge who even after grilling the Kielburger brothers for more than four hours, declared that he STILL wasn't satisfied.

And yeah, that's it for me as far as the NDP is concerned. 

I used to vote for them back in the days when they were idealists, and could legitimately claim to be progressive. And I'm still proud that Jack Layton was my friend.

But then came angry Tom Mulcair who took the party so far to the right, I didn't recognize it...

And was singularly obsessed with destroying Justin Trudeau. Just like the old and bitter DipperCons are today.

So now I'm done forever, or at least until the NDP becomes a nobler and more decent party again. 

As for Justin Trudeau, tomorrow he will have to face the Angus-Poilievre committee, or the Canadian version of an ugly star chamber.

And like so many other Canadians I am hoping that Trudeau will prevail. For our country is in great danger.

The Cons and the NDP have sabotaged our ability to defeat the pandemic.

And as far as I can see only decency can save us now...

Has Justin Trudeau Lost The Wind In His Sails?

As a sailor, I know that you can have the fastest boat, and the best crew, but if the wind quits on you, you can still lose.

Which makes me wonder if that is what's happening to Justin Trudeau.

For as this latest poll suggests, the fake WE scandal has had an impact.

Andrew Scheer And My Wonderful Humiliation Party

In my last post I looked at how Andrew Scheer is cracking up with less than a month to go before he is given the bum's rush as Con leader.

And how desperate he is to try to force Justin Trudeau to resign before he does.

But if you thought that was just another sign that Scheer is losing his marbles, and that his party would be able to calm him down even if they had to use a tranquilizer dart, forget it.

For today the poor loser was back, sounding even crazier.

Thursday, July 23, 2020

The Day Andrew Scheer Finally Lost His Marbles

I knew that Andrew Scheer was slowly but surely coming apart at the seams, and Iooking and acting weirder and weirder.

I knew it was just a matter of time before he totally lost it

He's now only a month away from being given the bum's rush as Con leader, and the thought that he hasn't been able to destroy Justin Trudeau must be absolutely KILLING him.

But who knew he would lose his marbles in such a spectacular manner?

Poll Wars: The Scheer Nightmare Is Almost Over

Golly, what a difference a day makes. Yesterday an Abacus poll made it look like Andrew Scheer and his Cons were heading for victory in the next election.

And I really had to wonder about the mental health of many some Canadians, who could stab a decent leader like Justin Trudeau in the back, after all he has done to save them from the horrors of a murderous pandemic.

For it wasn't a pretty sight.

Why the WEgate Fake Scandal Will Not Take Down Trudeau

I must admit I didn't think that the fake WE scandal would have any effect on the Liberal party standings, or on the popularity of Justin Trudeau.

It's so obviouly a manufactured scandal, and the only reason it lasted more than a day was because the Con media made it sound like the biggest story in the world.

I thought that Canadians would understand that, and also recognize the excellent work Trudeau has been doing to lead us through a deadly pandemic.

But sadly I was wrong.

Why The Con Media's Fake Scandal Is Going Nowhere

It's a pandemic nightmare right out of Kafka, where the roar of a media mob turns reality on its head.

And a decent prime minister who has worked tirelessly for months to defeat a murderous pandemic, and get the country back on its feet, is suddenly called a "criminal."

For the "crime" of failing to recuse himself from a cabinet meeting in his rush to get help to more than 35,000 young Canadians.

It's so petty, I didn't think Justin Trudeau should even have bothered to apologize.

But decent will do what decent does.
