The Day the Premiers Gave Stephen Harper a Slap in the Face

4 hours 40 min ago

He thought he could disrespect all those dead and missing aboriginal women. He thought he could treat that holocaust as just random acts of violence.

He thought he could use his callous position to appeal to his bigot base.

He thought he could get away with it.

But today Canada's Premiers gave him a stinging slap in the face.

Stephen Harper Goes After the Media and the Bigot Vote

13 hours 49 min ago

As you know I am increasingly concerned about Stephen Harper's state of mind. 

Because it's pretty clear to me that he is showing signs of cracking under the strain of all those bad polls, and is becoming even more aggressive. Or even crazier.

For in just a few days he has managed to attack Justin Trudeau like a bat out of hell.

Rant and rave about how the elitist conspiracy is out to get him.

All but declare war on the Russians. 

And now he's going after the MEDIA !!!!.

Stephen Harper Great Insane Tour of the North

14 hours 56 min ago

Well there he was, thundering over the tundra, on the last day of his Great Photo-Op Tour of the North.

The Dark Knight Nerd on the warpath. Taking part in a military exercise designed to portray him as a Great Strong Leader.

Declaring that the greatest threat to his beloved Arctic are the Russians.

An emboldened Russia is a threat to it neighbours in the Arctic and Canada must be ready to respond to any Russian incursions in the region, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Tuesday as he ended his yearly tour of Canada's North.

And suggesting that only a strong military, under his strong leadership, can save the people who live in the True North Strong and Free. 

His True North...

Stephen Harper and the Great Northern Farce

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 03:41

Well there he was today in the Northwest Passage, sailing majestically along and trying to pose as a great explorer, Harper of the True North Strong and Free. 

The push to find the remains of the Franklin expedition is not simply a matter of historical interest, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Sunday — it’s about the pre-Canadian claim to sovereignty in the Arctic.

Sending a strong subtle message to the Russians to back off, while indulging his depraved taste for the macabre.

The Harper Cons: Still Killing the CBC and Still Lying About It.

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 03:37

About two months ago, I told you how Stephen Harper was killing the CBC, 

Chopping it into pieces, frying it in its own blood, and washing it down with a glass of Chianti.

While instructing Con MPs like Joyce Bateman to deny it.

"We are not making cuts to the CBC… They have stable funding. I guess their crisis is their viewing is going down significantly. Hence, as a consequence, advertising revenue is going down, so that may be what you're referring to but from a government perspective, we are giving them as much taxpayer money as they ever have received."

Well believe it or not, even after being exposed as a liar.

Bateman is back, lying through her teeth. Again.

Stephen Harper's Dismal and Dangerous Black and White World

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 04:15

I spent the weekend trying to forget, at least for a few hours, all the horrible things that are happening in this world.

By biking along the waterfront, and shooting things like this bunch of wilting but still beautiful flowers...

But even they reminded me of all those missing and murdered aboriginal women...

And made me wonder again how Stephen Harper could dismiss that veritable holocaust as the mere acts of random violence.

GAZONTO: What if Gaza Was Toronto?

Sun, 08/24/2014 - 22:27

This simple but powerful artistic collage by the Palestinian photographer Belal Khalel, couldn't sum up better how I feel about what is going on in Gaza.

The ceasefire broken, whole neighbourhoods reduced to rubble, hundreds of thousands with no place to call home. More than 2,000 dead. More than ten thousand wounded. 

The Hamas death cult death firing off rockets and mortars in the general direction of Israel.

While shooting their own people in the street... 

The Israeli Death Machine levelling entire apartment buildings.

Stephen Harper's Great Paranoid Tour of the North

Sun, 08/24/2014 - 04:02

Well it's hard to know what exactly Stephen Harper is doing up north. 

Whether he's there to make more promises he never keeps. Or hide from the media.

Or warn us the Russians are coming.

Or just share a quiet crazy moment with his wife Laureen...

But one thing is for sure eh?

He's using the trip, and our hard earned tax dollars, to attack the opposition parties.

Tina Fontaine and the Utter Bestiality of Stephen Harper

Sun, 08/24/2014 - 00:54

They held a funeral service for Tina Fontaine yesterday and how sad it was was. 

"Our sweet girl is now reunited with her daddy and the angels," long-time family friend Sandra Longford said during the eulogy. Longford went on to sing Never Alone, the same song she sang at Tina's father's funeral just four years earlier.

And my sorrow over the death of yet another young aboriginal woman, is only matched by my hatred for her bestial killer, and my contempt for Stephen Harper.

"It's very clear that there has been very fulsome study of this particular … of these particular things. They're not all one phenomenon," said Harper. "We should not view this as a sociological phenomenon. We should view it as crime."

The bestial leader who would show us yet again why he is unfit to be a Canadian Prime Minister.

Scottish Independence and the Struggle for a Con Free Country

Sat, 08/23/2014 - 02:09

It's now less than a month before the people of Scotland will vote YES or NO to independence.

And some Canadian newspapers have been running stories, mostly comparing the campaign to the one during the last Quebec referendum.

But after spending a couple of weeks in Scotland recently, I have to say that while there are some strong similarities.

It's also very very different.

Stephen Harper and the Myths that Will Destroy Him

Fri, 08/22/2014 - 03:56

As I said in my last post, I don't think Stephen Harper is going to get very far accusing Justin Trudeau  of being an elitist. When he is the worst kind of anti-democratic elitist himself.

But he will continue to claim that he is a Great Economist Leader who saved us from the depth of the last recession.

And that he is a Great Crime Busting Leader who will save us from the criminals, who are EVERYWHERE.

But sadly for Harper none of those claims will help him either.

Stephen Harper and the Real Elitist Menace

Fri, 08/22/2014 - 02:59

As I pointed out yesterday, Stephen Harper has a new weapon in his arsenal to try to destroy Justin Trudeau.

He will not only claim that Justin wants to sell pot to kiddies.

And that he is a terrorist sympathizer, who is soft on criminals, including those who terrorized his own family.

He will also claim that he's a real HE-MAN and that Justin is a LIBERAL ELITIST !!!!

Stephen Harper's Deeply Disturbing Descent into Tea Bagger Hell

Thu, 08/21/2014 - 02:49

He is sounding more deranged every day. You can see the desperation in this cold dead eyes.

He's flailing away in every direction, trying anything he can think of to try to make himself more popular.

One moment he's Great Warrior Leader, a legend in his own mind.

The next moment he's a Republican Tea Bagger denouncing the "liberal elites."

The Day Dr Chris Lectured Stephen Harper

Wed, 08/20/2014 - 23:56

He's been slowly killing medicare in his usual creepy stealthy way. Nibble nibble, gnaw, gnaw.

Killing it with neglect, and preparing to bleed it dry. 

So most of it can be privatized, just like the Cons in Britain are doing to that country's National Health Service. The magnificent system that inspired our own.

And most dangerously of all he has done absolutely nothing to help prepare our health system for the increasing influx of aging baby boomers.

And is setting the stage for an absolute nightmare of unnecessary human suffering.

So I'm really glad to see that the new president of the Canadian Medical Association is finally taking aim at Stephen Harper's criminally irresponsible inaction.

The Harper PMO and the Insane War on Justin Trudeau

Wed, 08/20/2014 - 04:03

Well you might think that Stephen Harper and his PMO gang might have better things to worry about than the Liberal leader's visit to Edmonton.

Like the disastrous state of the Canadian economy which is only producing part-time jobs.

Or how they're going to explain why they failed to prevent this totally preventable catastrophe.

Or how they're going to dodge the beginning of the Mike Duffy trial on the same day that Parliament returns.

But no, as this memo from the PMO shows, they have only one thing on their minds.

The total destruction of Justin Trudeau.

Julian Fantino and the Continuing Con War on Canadian Veterans

Wed, 08/20/2014 - 00:08

I don't think I'll ever forget the sight of Julian Fantino running away from the wife of a wounded veteran who just wanted to speak to him.

And how Jenifer Migneault finally threw up her arms in frustration and despair and shouted at the retreating minister:

"We are NOTHING to you."

It was so powerful, it stunned me like a concussion grenade.

And how right she was.

For what else is anybody supposed to conclude from this disgusting situation?

The Con Regime and the Horror of Lac Mégantic

Tue, 08/19/2014 - 16:54

The report into the horrifying tragedy in Lac-Mégantic is out, and it couldn't be more devastating for the Con regime.

A railway with a “weak safety culture” and a federal regulator that was asleep at the switch combined to bring about the worst accident in modern Canadian history, says a report by the Transportation Safety Board.

For not only does the report blame the railway for not operating safely, it also blames the federal government for not doing enough to prevent that fiery holocaust.

The Shadowy Con Conspiracy to Destroy Justin Trudeau

Tue, 08/19/2014 - 03:46

I have no idea who broke into Justin Trudeau's home the other night while he was away, in a creepy attempt to terrorize him and his young family.

I can't imagine what kind of foul creature, or creatures, would leave a sinister message in a circle of butcher knives.

But I am glad Justin is asking the RCMP to evaluate his security. 

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has asked the RCMP to assess whether he will need a security detail after someone broke into his Ottawa home on Saturday and left a threatening note.

Because I honestly believe there are a group of shadowy Cons out there who are trying to destroy him.

Reefer Madness and the Corruption of Rona Ambrose

Tue, 08/19/2014 - 03:31

Well it could have been just another day in the glamorous life of Rona Ambrose Health Minister.

Serving the public, like an Angel of Mercy, and servicing Stephen Harper, like the Angel of Death.

Not necessarily in that order. 
But then she blew it. Again.
By trying to make the country's doctors believe that the Con cult's massive tax payer funded anti-marijuana ad campaign wasn't blatantly political. Read more »

The Farewell Stephen Harper Song

Mon, 08/18/2014 - 14:29

Well as you know he's tortured us for more than eight years, not just with his ghastly policies.

But also with his "singing."

That monstrous wailing and screeching designed to make us believe that he's really a nice guy.

No matter how much it hurts our ears, or embarrasses us in the eyes of the world.

So now that his hideous reign is nearing an end, I thought it might be a good idea to play this farewell song for Steve...
