As if the Con leadership race wasn't bizarre or pathetic enough.
With Kellie Leitch trying to stir up hatred against refugees and immigrants.
And Brad Trost trying to stir up hatred against gay Canadians.
Now another Con fanatic is joining the race.Read more »
Anyone who watched the Donald Trump Hillary Clinton debate knows who won.
And it wasn't the Annoying Orange.
But don't tell that to the bloated demagogue, because he simply can't accept reality.
And spent the day after his humiliating defeat claiming victory.Read more »
I must admit I was a bit worried, deeply concerned, a nervous wreck before last night's debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The bloated demagogue has been enjoying some momentum. Polls suggest the race is now a dead heat.
And with just six weeks to go before the election, it was a critical moment.
But it turns out I shouldn't have worried, because Clinton left Trump looking like a big baby.Read more »
I wasn't planning to write another post about Kellie Leitch for a while, because I feel I've written enough about her to last me a lifetime.
But then I saw the cover of the latest issue of Macleans and I changed my mind.
Because although that picture is absolutely ridiculous, and has people howling with laughter all over the country.
And wondering where did she get that flag pole from?Read more »
The ghastly show is finally over. After a shabby twenty year run on Parliament Hill Jason Kenney has packed up his harp, and finally left the building.
But not before one last tawdry song.
Jason Kenney delivered a rousing and emotional farewell speech in the House of Commons on Thursday after nearly 20 years as a member of Parliament. He struck a non-partisan tone and urged his colleagues to embrace their role as legislators, not simply as foot soldiers of a political party, and to relish their time in the hallowed halls of Centre Block — "the temple of our democracy," as he described it.
Which couldn't have been more phony or absurd. Kenney the ultimate rabid partisan preaching non partisanship in the "temple of democracy" he desecrated over and over again.
And that wasn't the only scandal...Read more »
I'm really looking forward to this weekend. It's going to be warm and sunny, and perfect for biking, or sailing.
And on Sunday, in this park in my neighbourhood, there is going to be a big book fair with lots of authors and artists. So it couldn't be better, or more lovely Canada.
But I can't forget what's happening to so many people in this nightmare place.
And ever since I found out that Chris Alexander and Kellie Leitch will be reuniting.
I can't help wondering what might have happened to some of the Syrian refugees now living in this peaceful country if the Cons had been re-elected?Read more »
Let it never be said that Ted Cruz holds a grudge for long. Or that he will let anything get in the way of his feverish desire to be President.
Not even what's left of his dignity, his father's good name, or his wife's honour.
For after having called Donald Trump every dirty word in the book, and claiming he'd have to be a "servile puppy" to endorse him
Big Ted has rolled over like a lap dog and endorsed him anyway.Read more »
The other day I wrote about how Kellie Leitch's "Anti-Canadian Values" campaign had brought back memories of the Chris and Kellie show.
The barbaric Con production where Leitch and Chris Alexander demonized Muslims, and invited Canadians to snitch on their neighbours.
And it was such an ugly memory, I remember thinking thank goodness that show was cancelled, and that those two will never be together again.
But sadly I was wrong. Because it seems that the Chris and Kellie show is on again.Read more »
As a Canadian I have always found it hard to understand how Donald Trump has managed to fool so many Americans into believing that he is more than just a grubby Con man.
Its always seemed so obvious to me. I mean look at him. What else could he be?
But now at last that may be changing.
The media in that country has finally started to take a closer look at Trump, his Empire, and his campaign.
And revealing him to be a shameless hustler Con man clown.Read more »
As we all know Bernie Sanders was treated unfairly by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party establishment.
And he has every right to be bitter.
But with the shadow of the fascist Trump looming over America.
Bernie is hitting the campaign trail and urging his supporters to vote for Hillary.Read more »
As you may know Donald Trump has been trying to reach out to to African American voters, by visiting black churches and asking one wacko preacher after the other to bless him.
But it doesn't seem to be working, with his support still mired in the single digits and falling...And his visit to a black church in Cleveland yesterday can only drive that support down further.
Because it began weirdly, and ended disastrously.Read more »
It still feels like summer in the place where I live, but fall officially arrives tomorrow.
So I have been spending as much time as I can soaking up every precious ray of sunshine.
And I am finding it very hard to get excited about the return of Parliament.
For just one quick glance at Question Period was enough to send shivers down my back.Read more »
Last Sunday was the second anniversary of Scotland's independence referendum, which as you may know, was for me a day of great disappointment.
And one I'll always remember.
But I haven't dared even mention the anniversary when talking to my family in the Scottish highlands, because for them it's a day best forgotten.
They don't want to talk about it. It's too traumatic.
And they all voted NO.Read more »
They say an apple never falls far from the tree. Especially if it's rotten to the core.
And in the case of Donald Trumps's family, the would be first family of America, that couldn't be more true.
For this is what his ghastly spawn Donald Trump Jr. tweeted last night.Read more »
As you may have heard, Stephen Harper is finally gainfully employed again, after getting paid to do nothing for so long.And although he hasn't yet asked Big Oil for a job, he's clearly got plans to become a very rich man.For not only does he have his own consulting business, he has joined Dentons the world's largest law firm. Which as you can see has made him very, very, happy.Read more »
As we know Donald Trump is always attacking the media, and going after reporters who criticize him, or don't flatter his bloated ego.
Blasting away at them on his deranged Twitter account, in an obvious attempt to intimidate them.
He has vowed that if he becomes President he will change the law to make it easier to sue them for libel.
And this weekend his tiny fingers have been typing away furiously, threatening the New York Times.Read more »
It seems I might have been a bit too hasty when I labelled the Harper Party, the Trump Party.
For while Kellie Leitch and Tony Clement are doing their pathetic best to foster that impression...And I'm sure both those losers will eventually succeed in labelling it the Trump Party in the eyes of most Canadians.
It's important to remember that the Harper Party has always been, and still is, Canada's Homophobic Party.Read more »
I knew Donald Trump was growing increasingly desperate, like Benito Mussolini himself.
Before he expired from a bad case of lead poisoning, and was hung up to dry.
For it couldn't have been easy having to kill his own campaign.
But who knew that dirty old man is now so afraid of being humiliated by Hillary Clinton.
He would suggest that his grubby supporters might kill her...Read more »
In my last post I predicted that Donald Trump's so-called birther campaign would do him enormous damage.
By finally exposing him as a dirty old crackpot.
But now I'm sure it will destroy him.Read more »
He has been trying to soften his image, and portray himself as a reasonable man. A man who loves children and black people, not a deranged demagogue.
And it has boosted his polls.
But sadly for Donald Trump, he can only be reasonable for so long, before the voices in his head start screaming, and he reveals his inner racism.
And now, just as he was doing so well, he may have stuck a fork in his own campaign.Read more »
