I have to admit it was a great photo-op, and a sure way to get the attention of the Con media.
A small group of demonstrators at the CLC's Young Workers Summit turning their backs on Justin Trudeau.
"Honour your promises!" hollered some in the crowd, as event moderators tried to keep the peace. "We don't have dialogue with liars!" "Shame! Shame!"
While shooting selfies of themselves, with Justin peering over their shoulders.
But although I am all in favour of young Canadians getting politically involved, and if necessary giving the Prime Minister a rough ride.
I thought their behaviour was appalling.Read more »
As we all know, it's sometimes hard to tell whether Donald Trump is an extreme narcissist, or a clinical psychopath, or a sexual predator, or a raging maniac.
Or all of the above.
But now we find out that on a rare occasion when Trump revealed his inner demons, they turned out to be more pathetic than frightening.Read more »
I love the musical Les Miserables. I love the songs, and the way the characters celebrate revolution.
Even if it ends badly.
Because I believe that only a revolution can save us and the world we live in.
But Donald Trump has a version of Les Miserables called Les Deplorables... Read more »
As you know I always predicted that the Con leadership race was going to be a real circus.
But who knew there would be so many candidates. Twelve and counting.
Or that it would be such a fascist circus.
For look who just joined the race.Read more »
With only fifteen days to go before the U.S. election, if we were on a plane this would be about the time when the pilot announces "we're now on final approach."
Or if you're on the Trump plane the pilot screams "Mayday!! Mayday!! Only God can save us!!!!
Hillary Clinton has vaulted to a double-digit advantage in the inaugural ABC News 2016 election tracking poll, boosted by broad disapproval of Donald Trump on two controversial issues: His treatment of women and his reluctance to endorse the election’s legitimacy.
Unless you're Donald Trump of course, who is still screaming "MAGA!!! MAGA!!! My campaign is not nosediving!!!!"Read more »
It's a strange thing about Justin Trudeau. He may be the most popular Prime Minister in recent Canadian history, and a nice guy.
But nobody is hated and demonized by some Canadians as much as he is, and now that hatred is out of control.
For what else can explain that some crazy from the Green Party should throw pumpkin seeds at Trudeau.Read more »
There are now only sixteen days to go before the U.S. election, but they promise to be some of the scariest days of our lives.
For Donald Trump and his Trumplings are still a nightmare in progress.
And there was Trump yesterday, on what he called the "hollowed ground" of Gettysburg.
Where the great Abraham Lincoln so famously tried to heal the wounds of a nation.
Delivering the anti-Gettysburg address.Read more »
I'm sure you remember Michael Sona, the young Con operative who was the only person ever convicted in the Robocall Scandal.
Well now he's out of jail, talking to Michael Harris.
Still proclaiming his innocence.Read more »
This weekend will mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Chanie Wenjack, the Ojibway boy who ran away from a residential school, only to die of hunger and exposure.
The boy Gord Downie, who is also dying, has made it his last project to remember.
You know, this boy...Read more »
Yesterday I celebrated the one-year anniversary of the day Justin Trudeau brought down the Con regime, after a decade of darkness.
Only to be reminded how fragile was that victory.
And how desperately the Con media are to return us to the nightmare we escaped.
And to try to destroy Justin.Read more »
As we all know, Hillary Clinton had Donald Trump for dinner at their final debate Wednesday night.
But not before he had called her a "nasty woman" and threatened not to accept the election result.
For as we also know, Trump is a bad loser.
But at least yesterday he made it clear what the decent people of America must do to avoid a post-election nightmare.Read more »
I was so excited to see Donald Trump hit the canvas last night, that I forgot that it was also the one year anniversary of the day Stephen Harper also went down like palooka.
And the sun finally set on his foul Con regime.One year since Canadians finally gave them the boot. Humiliated their depraved leader.
Made Justin Trudeau prime minister.

For a sickening moment during last night's debate, I thought Donald Trump was going to give Hillary Clinton a hard time, score some badly needed points.And maybe even win the debate, after losing the two others.For he started out looking reasonably under control, he wasn't sniffling or snuffling, and he was talking about jobs.But sadly for him that only lasted about 30 minutes, before he hit the canvas with a sickening thud.Read more »
They will face each other for the last time in Las Vegas tonight, and for Donald Trump it will be his last chance to try to stop Hilary Clinton from becoming the first female president of the United States.
And burying him in a landslide.
It’s now or never for Donald Trump.
Trump now lags Hillary Clinton in the RealClearPolitics national polling average by about 7 percentage points, a margin that suggests he is in danger of being routed on Nov. 8.And Trump is no doubt hoping that Hillary Clinton's WikiLeak's e-mails will damage her enough to save him from disaster.Read more »
No media personality in this country has attacked Justin Trudeau as viciously as has Ezra Levant.
He has called him a terrorist, he has attacked his family in the lowest possible way.
During Trudeau's fight with Patrick Brazeau he got so carried away, he practically came in his pants wondering whether Justin would be removed in an ambulance or a hearse.
And his ghastly Rebel has run one death threat after another aimed at him in its grotesque comment section.
So this desperate plea couldn't be more patheticRead more »
Like many others, I don't believe that Donald Trump ever thought he would become the Republican candidate for president, when he launched his campaign sixteen months ago.
I believe that all he was interested in was getting a lot of free publicity, and boosting the Trump brand.
So I thought it might be interesting to look at how that brand is doing after all that has happened and all those scandals.
And as it turns out, the answer is not so good.Read more »
About two weeks ago I wrote a post where I said that the only thing worse than watching Donald Trump in full fury, was having to listen to his screaming surrogates on CNN.
And this doesn't help.
Not when Corey Lewandowski is reportedly being paid $500,000 by CNN, while apparently still working for Trump.
But the worst thing about those surrogates is that not only are they incredibly annoying, CNN's decision to employ them is also a threat to American democracy.Read more »
Now it really is looking like the final scene in a horror movie. With the monster Donald Trump cornered and increasingly desperate.
Most decent Americans now consider him a sleazy sexual predator. Fewer people are attending his rallies. His polls are collapsing.
And he's never sounded crazier, or more dangerous.Read more »
I'll always remember the day Stephen Harper decided to start celebrating Canada's 150th birthday, three years early.
And how critics warned that the infrastructure money that came with it could be used by the Cons as a giant slush fund.
And sure enough they were right. Read more »
Yes I know, I vowed to try to tune out the Donald Trump horror movie this weekend, to remind myself that the world isn't THAT crazy.
But it isn't easy. Not with the deranged demagogue now running wild, and suggesting that Hillary Clinton was on drugs during the last debate.
“We should take a drug test prior because I don’t know what’s going on with her. But at the beginning of her last debate — she was all pumped up at the beginning, and at the end it was like, ‘Oh, take me down.’ She could barely reach her car.”
After his sniffling, snuffling performance, that had many wondering whether he was suffering from a bad case of coke nose.
So I give thanks that in the midst of this madness there are videos to distract me.Read more »
