Jason Kenney and the Teck Frontier Fiasco



For months Jason Kenney has been strutting around like a puffed up mini Mussolini,  bellowing "Trudeau gimme that mine, or else!!!!"

And threatening that Alberta could separate if the Liberal government didn't approve the Teck Frontier project, a massive oil sands mine.

But today you could hear the air hissing out of him, after the project was abandoned, and once again he was made to look like a loser.


Has Andrew Scheer Finally Finally Lost His Marbles?



As you may know, I have always been deeply concerned about Andrew Scheer's mental stability. 

His creepy smile, his religious extremism, his feverish obsession with Justin Trudeau, and his compulsive desire to strangle the truth, always made me wonder whether he was going off the deep end.

And sure enough, I truly believe he finally has.

And it all started on the night he was defeated and humiliated by the man he hates so much.

Justin Trudeau and the Day of Decision



He waited as long as he could, too long in the opinion of many.

He was obviously hoping that peaceful negotiation could bring down the rail barricades, in the best Canadian tradition.

But at last Justin Trudeau's patience was exhausted.

And it was the day of decision.

Now Can We Call The Cons The Levant Party?



In my last post, I looked at how Peter MacKay tweeted his support for far-right vigilantes who dismantled a blockade near Edmonton.

Only to hastily delete it. 

But by then it was too late, it had gone viral.

The Ugly Cons and the Shadow of the Vigilante



The barricades are still up, the ugly Cons are still howling for native blood.

And a lot of people all over the country are impatient and angry.

But Justin Trudeau's decision to rely on the Canadian values of negotiation and compromise seems to be working. 

Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says he's hoping the RCMP's offer to leave their outpost on Wet'suwet'en territory in northern B.C. will lead to the barricades coming down, as talks aimed at ending the rail blockades crippling the country's rail network continue.

And just in the nick of time, for some angry white Cons are trying to take the law into their own hands.

The Native Protests and the Bestial Cons



Thanks to this blockade I had to rent a car and drive to Montreal, instead of taking the train.

But Seb and I got to play our favourite songs all the way there and back, which we hadn't done for a long time.  So we had a blast.

And for a while at least I didn't have to listen to the howls of the bestial Cons. 

For they are out of control.

The Con Clown Erin O'Toole's Far Right Farce



I've always known that Erin O'Toole wasn't the brightest bulb in the universe, but I've always thought of him as a relatively innocuous Con clown. 

Unfortunately ever since he set out to win over his party's rabid base, he 's starting to sound like a far-right extremist.

And this is just the latest example.

John Baird Crashes Out Of The Con Leadership Race



He swam menacingly around the shark tank. He couldn't make up his mind. He knew the Cons were hoping he'd liven up their deadly boring leadership race.

He knew they were desperate.  

It is hard to imagine a race more boring than this one... As in any arena, strong competition breeds strong competitors. A field of strong candidates fight more forcefully for their ideas. Their weaknesses get tested. And through the fire of a leadership contest – the hotter the better - you harden them into steel. 

Step forward John Baird.

But when the time came, he just wasn't ready.

Will The Native Protests Kill The Reconciliation Process?



As I'm sure you know, there have been protests all over the country, in solidarity with the hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en Nation in northern B.C.

And while most of the protests have been noisy but peaceful.

Some have been ugly with people denied entrance to the places where they work.

Where Exactly Would Erin O'Toole Take The Cons?



The other day I wrote about how Erin O'Toole wants everybody to know that he's a True Blue Con.

Although I wasn't quite sure what exactly he was trying to say.

But now I know, and it couldn't be more ridiculous

Ezra Levant Goes After Omar Khadr. Again.



Ezra Levant is the most grotesque bully I have ever encountered. A porcine right-wing extremist who peddles bigotry for profit.

And the money he makes attacking Justin Trudeau, is only matched by the money he makes attacking the former child soldier Omar Khadr.

So when he heard that Khadr would be part of a panel discussion on child soldiers at Dalhousie University, he set off for Halifax to confront the man he hates so much.

Michael Harris on Peter MacKay and the Con Losers



In my last post I looked at a recent poll, one that had Peter MacKay so far ahead of the other Con leadership candidates it might as well be a coronation.

But sadly for Dumbo, it's only a cardboard crown, or a silly beanie with a helicopter-style propeller.

It won't mean much to most decent Canadians who remember how faithfully he served the monstrous Harper regime.

Erin O'Toole and the True Blue Farce



I never really noticed Erin O'Toole until he replaced Julian Fantino at Veteran Affairs, talked up a storm, only to find himself running for his life.

And then of course there was the time, when he suggested he was a Top Gun, only to be shot down and revealed to be a helicopter navigator.

But you get the idea. Tool likes to talk tough, even if he can't deliver.

So this is no surprise.

Will John Baird Join The Con Leadership Race?



It's hard to believe that John Baird could even be considered as a candidate for the Con leadership, after his disgraceful behaviour during the dark years of the Harper regime.

But the Cons are desperate. With less than a month to go before nominations close, hardly anyone has applied for the job. As one of my readers said the other day, "They got NOTHING!!!!"

So Jason Kenney is now urging his good buddy Baird to run.

How The Cons Became The Trump Party



It's a political story that ends in a graveyard, and I've been telling it for a long time. 

The story of the Harper Party, and how the Cons became more American than Canadian.

So when Donald Trump came along they fell on their knees before him.

Has Andrew Scheer Gone Over The Deep End?



He looks like the same old Andrew Scheer, the Con in the same blue suit, with the same creepy smile.

But don't be fooled. He may have only five months to go as Con leader, but his feverish obsession to try to destroy Justin Trudeau has never been greater.

And he has never acted so disturbed and so dangerous.

Is Peter MacKay Wrecking His Own Leadership Campaign?



As we all know,  Peter MacKay has been trying to make us believe that he's more of a manly manly leader than Justin Trudeau.

By acting like an ape, weaponizing misogyny, again. And trying to label Trudeau as a sissy or a girly boy, for the "crime" of practicing yoga.

But sadly for MacKay, his ugly smear appears to be backfiring.

After the bellowing ape was revealed to be nothing more than a squawking chicken.

The Ugly Cons and the Incredible Contracting Leadership Race



The last time the Cons held a leadership contest, just about everybody agreed that there were too many candidates, and it was real horror show..

But this time the Cons have another problem, an incredible contracting leadership race.

Where there are now so few candidates, some are worried it could end up looking like the coronation of Peter MacKay.

Peter MacKay and the Con Culture War



The polls suggest that Peter MacKay is the front runner in the Con leadership race. 

And he is the only candidate so far to have paid the entrance fee.

Just one week after officially launching his leadership campaign, MacKay has submitted the full $300,000 fee required to officially enter the race to replace Andrew Scheer.

But if anyone thinks that MacKay is the one who can give the Cons a brighter future, they are doomed to be sadly disappointed.

For he seems to want to take the Cons back to the past.

The Coronavirus and Canada's Bigot Epidemic



The images are apocalyptic, and the torrent of hysterical news stories are enough to make anyone reach for a face mask, or a hazmat suit.

But so far at least the coronavirus cannot even be compared to the far deadlier influenza virus.

And in Canada, with only a few mild cases, this is the biggest threat.

The Trumpling Campaign of the Con Clown Erin O'Toole



For most of his short and undistinguished parliamentary career, Erin O'Toole has been little more than a mouth that roars.

An annoying but relatively harmless Harper stooge.

But now he's running for the Con leadership. Again.

And he's posing as a warrior, or a great defender of Canada.

Peter MacKay Wants To Fight Justin Trudeau. For Real!!



Nine years ago Justin Trudeau offered Peter MacKay a chance to fight him in a charity boxing match.

MacKay turned him down, so Patrick Brazeau took his place. Only to wish he hadn't.

But despite that, MacKay now says he'd welcome a chance to fight Trudeau.

Yet Another Reason Peter MacKay Is Unfit To Be Prime Minister



There are many reasons I dislike Peter MacKay, starting with the way he sought to pleasure his master Stephen Harper, by trying to turn this country into a prison state.

The way he attacked our precious Supreme Court for daring to stand up for our Canadian values was absolutely disgusting, as was his ugly serial misogyny.

His Great War on Marijuana was right out of Reefer Madness.

Will John Bolton Be The One Who Finally Blows Up Trump?



I must admit that when the "stable genius" Donald Trump made the unstable warmonger John Bolton his national security adviser, I thought our goose was cooked.

And that Bolton would be the one who would push Trump over the edge, and get us all blown up.

So imagine how happy I am to think that Bolton could be the one who blows up Trump.

Peter MacKay and the Monstrous Mediocrity of the Cons



As I watched Peter MacKay officially launch his leadership campaign this morning, I felt like I was travelling back in time.

Back to the days when MacKay was Stephen Harper's most faithful stooge, even though he had stolen his party from him.

So the idea that Dumbo could now ride to the rescue of Canada is totally outrageous...

The Con Leadership Race and the Day of the Dead



It was just another day in the Con clown leadership race, but before it was over the real face of the Harper Party had been revealed. Again.

And it couldn't be more ugly.

Or for the Cons more like the Day of the Dead.

Why The Cons Will Always Be The Religious Bigot Party



It was Andrew Scheer's fatal flaw, the one that more than all the others cost him the election.

His religious fanaticism that made it impossible for many women and LGBT Canadians to trust him.

So not surprisingly those who would replace Scheer are desperate not to make the same mistake.

And one leadership candidate, Pierre Poilievre, is even trying to whitewash his past.

Iran and the Political Resurrection of Justin Trudeau



Over the course of the last year Justin Trudeau has had to deal with some of the darkest days of his political career.

The ugly Cons attacked him like a pack of rabid hyenas over one fake scandal after the other.

Their media stooges joined in the attempted lynching. with some of them even claiming that Trudeau was unfit to be a Canadian prime minister.

But not any longer.

The Ugly Cons and the Return of Stephen Harper



In one of my recent posts I mentioned that Stephen Harper had been spotted stumbling around in his zombie crypt.

And was threatening to intervene in the Con leadership race, to make sure the party he created remained the Harper Party.

Well now EVERYONE should take cover.

Because Great Zombie Leader has left the land of the living dead...

Justin Trudeau, Iran, and the Trumpling Cons



For days after the shooting down of that Ukrainian airliner Justin Trudeau spent most of his time demanding answers from the Iranians, and mourning our dead.

He didn't have time to play cheap politics as our bestial Cons were demanding.

But after the Iranian military admitted it had shot down the plane, he did speak out.

And said what really needed to be said...

Stephen Harper and the Con Zombies



Two years ago Stephen Harper told an American audience that he could still "easily" be Con leader, but didn't want to turn the party into his "personal political vehicle."

But now he is working behind the scenes to elect the next leader. 

An associate told the Star that Harper is supportive of a number of those seen as contenders for the leadership, including his former parliamentary secretary Pierre Poilievre and former cabinet ministers Peter MacKay and Erin O’Toole.

Which couldn't be more disastrous for his zombie party.

Justin Trudeau and the Hate-Mongering Wexiteers



The contrast couldn't have been clearer, or more brutal. 

At a vigil in Edmonton to remember those killed in the downing of that Ukrainian airliner, Justin Trudeau calling the crash a "Canadian tragedy."

“Your entire country stands with you tonight, tomorrow, and in all the years to come,” he told about 2,300 people who attended a memorial service on Sunday.

And asking Canadians to unite in this "moment of national pain."

Which was as beautiful as this is ugly.

The Tehran Tragedy and the Strength of Justin Trudeau



The 176 bodies have apparently been retrieved, including those of 57 Canadians whose lives were so brutally ended as they were on their way home. 

The Iranian military has admitted that they were responsible. 

And said that they are very sorry for bringing down the plane with a missile, in the fog or the darkness of war.

Leaving Justin Trudeau in the darkness of an Ottawa winter having to deal with the diplomatic fallout, and the anger and grief of many Canadians.

Could Pierre Poilievre Be The New Con Messiah?



Canada's SoCons have been unusually quiet since their leader Andrew Scheer was brought down by Justin Trudeau.

And went to hell in a bucket, so to speak.

But not any longer. 

Now that the Con leadership race is officially underway, the religious fanatics are speaking out, and they're NOT happy.

Is Donald Trump High On Drugs Or Just Insane?



For a moment last night the situation looked bleak. With Iranian missiles raining down on two American bases.

And the crazed Donald Trump huddled with his generals, no doubt threatening to do what he has been promising to do for days;

But when he addressed the American people and the rest of the world this morning, it was clear that he had been brought at least temporarily under control.

Did Trump's God Squad Inspire The Strike on Iran?



As you may remember, I thought the sight of Donald Trump praying with thousands of evangelicals one day after ordering the killing of Qassim Suleimani absolutely disgusting.

Especially his claim that God is "on our side." 

But what makes that even more disturbing is that the inspiration to assassinate Suleimani may indeed have come from above.

The Con Leadership Race: Now It's a Farce



As I'm sure you remember, the last Con leadership race was an absolute horror show that seemed to go on forever.

And despite the large number of candidates stumbling around only managed to produce a loser like Andrew Scheer.

Well now the Cons are trying to speed up the process by announcing that the new leader will be chosen next June.

Donald Trump and the Rush to War With Iran



It couldn't be a more disturbing sight. The depraved Donald Trump soaking up the love of the religious right, bragging about the assassination of the Iranian general Qassim Suleimani.

And claiming he ordered the killing to stop a war.

When in fact the evidence suggests the opposite.

Donald Trump and the Road to World War III



I was so happy to get back to Canada just in time to see the last sunset of 2019. 

And I was looking forward to enjoying a slightly more peaceful year in 2020.

So imagine how I feel to see us such a short time later, teetering on the edge of World War III.
