It had to be one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen on TV. So beautiful I almost couldn't believe it.
I just sat there stunned.
But it was true. What once seemed like an impossible dream had actually happened.
Rachel Notley and the NDP had crushed the Cons to smithereens, and turned Alberta ORANGE. Read more »
He likes to turn everything into just another big photo-op. He likes to pose as a Great Warrior Leader.
He likes to run pictures of himself and our soldiers, to prove he supports our troops.
Even if he endangers them. Read more »
There couldn't have been a more brutal clash of images. The old veterans in their wheelchairs honouring their comrades who died fighting the fascists to make Holland free.
And Stephen Harper posing for his propaganda reels, sucking up to the vets he has betrayed so miserably.
Playing politics in the garden of the dead, and having the nerve to talk about freedom and tyranny. Read more »
With just a few hours to go before Albertans go to the polls, in what could be a historic election, the excitement continues to mount.
And while some experts are still predicting that Jim Prentice's election day machine will allow him to keep his job.
A new poll is predicting that Rachel Notley's NDP is heading for a blowout victory. Read more »
As you know Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney made a surprise visit to Iraq, to try to whip up interest in the Great War on Terror.
Which has been flagging badly as the days get warmer and most Canadians tune it out.
And as the war fever fades, so do fears about the Great Terrorist Menace.
Especially since the ISIS crazies have yet to attack us, despite all Harper and Kenney have done to provoke an attack, by blowing hot air out of every orifice...So the Cons are now so desperate they're going after Omar Khadr. Again. Read more »
We already knew that the brains of progressives and conservatives are wired differently.
And that Cons have a larger fear gland
Peering inside the brain with MRI scans, researchers at University College London found that self-described conservative students had a larger amygdala (link is external) than liberals. The amygdala is an almond-shaped structure deep in the brain that is active during states of fear and anxiety.
The conservative party is big on national defense and magnifies our perception of threat, whether of foreign aggressors, immigrants, terrorists, or invading ideologies like Communism. To a conservative, the world really is a frightening place.
Which explains so much...Read more »
It looked like a scene out of one of those On the Road movies with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.
Except that this movie is not a comedy it's a horror show.
It's Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney on the road in Iraq,
Giving themselves another big, fat, juicy photo-op with OUR money. Read more »
With just two days to go before the Alberta election the excitement is mounting, and so is the fear campaign.
With Jim Prentice and his Big Business posse trying to scare the people of that province into voting for them and not the NDP.
And today it was Big Oil's turn to try to rescue the crumbling Con dynasty, and threaten Albertans. Read more »
Gosh. What a difference a day makes. The other day I was lamenting that an Abacus poll seemed to suggest that enough Canadians had liked the Con's porky budget so much they had given given Stephen Harper a big boost.
But now an EKOS poll suggests that while nobody is complaining about being bribed.
The budget hasn't moved his numbers. Read more »
Oh no. I can't believe it. She's at it again. Rona Ambrose just can't stop scaring people, and has absolutely no idea of her own limitations.Just a few days ago she was terrorizing the peaceful residents of Vancouver by posing as a Health Minister AND a Justice Minister.And demanding that they close down their pot shops, before the Killer Weed kills them, and Justin Trudeau kills their children.Now she trying to scare the people of Alberta, with dark warnings about the Deadly Job Killing NDP Menace.While posing as a Finance Minister !!!!

It's now been two full days since this shocking report on sexual harassment and violence in the Canadian Armed Forces.
The Canadian Armed Forces perpetuates a sexualized military culture that is hostile to women and gay members, and harassment and assault are often tolerated by senior officers, according to a report released Thursday.
But still Jason Kenney, the Defence Minister, has yet to issue a single solitary statement, about the problem and what he expects the military to do about it.
So now I'd like to ask that grotesque chicken hawk which of these details does he NOT find offensive?Read more »
It's been eerily quiet down by the waterfront where I live. It still doesn't feel like Spring.
People seem strangely subdued. And although I am looking forward to all the good things warm weather brings, I can't shake the feeling that something awful is about to happen.
And polls like this one don't help.Read more »
Ever since he came to power Stephen Harper has been trying to militarize this country.Trying to destroy our noble peacekeeping traditions, and turn our military into Harper's Army, with his hollow slogan:STRONG. PROUD. FREE.But as a new report makes clear the truth couldn't be more UGLY.Read more »
It may be hard to believe, but something amazing is happening in Alberta.
Other polls have documented the rise of the NDP.
But now one is suggesting the party is closing in on a majority. Read more »
Sometimes I think that the Mike Duffy trial is like one of those Russian nesting dolls, with Duffy as the biggest doll hiding all those other scandals inside it.
Which is unfortunate, because it might give people the impression that it's all about Ol' Duff and his dubious activities.
When in fact it's turning into a trial of the Senate AND the trial of Stephen Harper.
Who as Tom Mulcair pointed out yesterday, is at the very heart of the scandal. Read more »
I'm sure you remember the desperate state Jason Kenney was in a month ago, after claiming the reason the Cons were expanding the war into Syria was because the Americans had asked us.
Since we were apparently the only country in the anti-ISIS coalition, apart from the U.S., to have so-called smart bombs.
Only to have the country's top soldier shuffle forward, and make him look an idiot, or a liar.
And have the NDP demand that he be found guilty of breaching parliamentary privilege.
But as it turns out he didn't have to wail, or sweat even more than usual. Because yesterday the Con Speaker declared it was only an honest mistake. Read more »
Ever since the Mike Duffy scandal erupted one question has never been properly answered.How on earth did Duffy think he could get away with posing as a Senator from Prince Edward Island, when he had lived in Ottawa for decades?And yesterday that question was finally answered.It apparently wasn't Duffy's idea to pass himself off as the Senator from P.E.I., it was the fond wish, or the command, of his depraved patron Stephen Harper.

The other day I told you how the Con clown Rona Ambrose was causing a frightful scandal in Vancouver.
Making herself look like an absolute idiot, by screaming that marijuana was a killer weed, and NOBODY should consume it. Not even sick people prescribed it by their doctors.And loudly demanding that the city close its pot shops.
Before the devil weed, and Justin Trudeau, claimed more young victims.
So I was really glad to see that BC's Chief Medical Officer has taken on the challenge of re-educating the village idiot.Read more »
If we needed any more evidence that the Con regime is some kind of freakish cult, and that Stephen Harper is desperate, now we have it.
On Thursday it will be Great Leader's 56th birthday.
And his PMO monsters are actually sending out birthday cards for people to sign, tell him how much they love him. And wish him a happy birthday AND a happy majority !!!! Read more »
We knew the Cons are already spending $7.5 million dollars of OUR money to promote their smoke and mirrors budget.
To remind Canadians that many of them can expect a cheque in the mail if they vote for them.
And to try to brainwash Canadians into believing that Stephen Harper is a Great Economist Leader.
But it turns out, no doubt because of the way he has driven the economy into the ground, that won't be enough.
So the Cons are throwing in millions of their own dollars, to try to brainwash us, or blitz us, beyond recognition. Read more »
