Jason Kenney and the Shameless Con Zombies

3 hours 59 min ago

In my last post I told you how Jason Kenney and a group of Con zombies set out to try to use a secretly recorded conversation to discredit a Liberal candidate in Alberta.

Only to end up looking like clowns when it turned out they had gone after the wrong person.

So you might think they would have the decency to apologize for their idiot mistake, or at least admit they were wrong.

But no they will not, for they are Cons, and they are shameless.

Stephen Harper, Jason Kenney, and the Con Clown Circus

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 04:38

As you know, I sometimes like to portray the foul Harper regime as a Con clown circus.

Because although they are the most sinister government in Canadian history, fanatical, brutish, and cruel. 

They are also hysterically incompetent.

And today was one of their best shows EVER !!!!

The Ghomeshi Scandal and the CBC Management Cult

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 02:02

About ten days ago I wrote a post about the CBC and the Ghomeshi scandal, and I blamed its hapless managers for creating a cult of celebrity where such a horrible thing could happen.

Then came this shabby incident. 

Which not only reinforced my belief that CBC management treats its "stars" like gods. It also convinced me that some of those managers don't know what they're doing, and should be fired immediately.

And now from the guy most responsible for exposing the Ghomeshi scandal comes this latest shocking revelation: CBC management isn't just promoting a celebrity cult.

It's a cult ITSELF!!!!!

Stephen Harper, Stephen Lewis, and the Con Neanderthals

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 04:37

Somewhere in his grim bunker, or his dank closet, Stephen Harper must be celebrating madly.

I'm sure he can't quite believe his good fortune. Or the way the bony hand of fate has saved him from almost certain defeat.

But war has been good for Great Leader, and after trailing Justin Trudeau for a year and a half, he has finally caught him.

Shelly Glover and the New Con Assault on the CBC

Sun, 11/23/2014 - 02:36

I have to admit that when I heard that the Con Heritage Minister Shelly Glover was warning the CBC to boost its ratings, or ELSE, I thought of her former profession.

And of what some some bloated foreign fascist, who may or may not have been Hermann Goring once said:

"When I hear the word culture I feel like reaching for my revolver."

How Stephen Harper Screwed the NDP AND Himself

Sat, 11/22/2014 - 05:47

He likes to think of himself as a Great Warrior Leader. And the greatest political genius  this country has ever known.

And of course his faithful fanatics in the PMO groom him like a queen bee, and feed his delusions.

But these days I wouldn't be surprised if they are all sitting there in shock, watching Stephen Harper weeping like a baby, or biting the carpet in his closet.

After finally realizing he has made a horrible, possibly fatal, and definitely elementary mistake.

Stephen Harper's Outrageous Boondoggle Tour of the North

Sat, 11/22/2014 - 02:12

We knew it was just another extravagant photo-op, a chance for Stephen Harper to pose as a Great Strong Leader and a Great Explorer.

The man who found the remains of the Franklin expedition, and told Putin to take a hike...

We knew he made an absolute fool of himself.

We knew he managed to spend a week in the Arctic without ever mentioning the words climate change...

Which takes a certain skill. The kind they teach you in prison.

But holy moly poley bear, who knew it was so EXPENSIVE !!!!

When the Harper Cons Don't Listen to Canada's Doctors

Fri, 11/21/2014 - 03:13

In the aftermath of the SARS crisis of 2003, the government created the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the position of Chief Public Health Officer to strengthen this country's medical defences.

After they were shown to be almost catastrophically inadequate.

But now Stephen Harper and his Cons are slashing the Public Health Agency's budget, and neutering the country's top doctor.

And to make matters even worse, they're not even listening to them. They're all but burying their reports.

Stephen Harper and the Great War on the Internet

Fri, 11/21/2014 - 00:09

He rules by fear. He tries to muzzle his opponents. He is terrorizing the civil service, and politicizing the police.

So when the Privacy Commissioner warns that Stephen Harper is trying to control the only thing he can't control, the internet. 

Canadians should be alarmed.

Julian Fantino and the Royal Conadian Choir

Thu, 11/20/2014 - 04:13

When I heard the news that Julian Fantino had met with a group of veterans in an apparent effort to rebuild all those bridges he has blown up in the last few years, I was suitably impressed.

Until I found out the meeting was at the Citadel in Quebec City, not Ottawa as is usually the case. So he could get as far away from the Parliamentary media as possible, short of heading for Tuktoyaktuk.

Or Stephen Harper's closet.

And that veterans who weren't prepared to join the choir and sing along with him, weren't invited.

Michael Sona, Stephen Harper, and the Robocall Conspiracy

Wed, 11/19/2014 - 16:10

It was an attempt to steal an election, and today one of Stephen Harper's Cons was sent to jail for that crime against democracy. 

Former Conservative staffer Michael Sona has been sentenced to nine months in jail plus a year on probation for trying to keep some voters in Guelph, Ont., from casting ballots in the 2011 federal election.

But it wasn't much of a sentence, and the burning question remains: 

What about the others?

For there were others, and it was a conspiracy.

Why The Harper Cons Must Pull These Porky Ads

Wed, 11/19/2014 - 04:17

As you know, I had a little fun yesterday with this latest Porky Action Plan ad, produced and directed by the Con Ministry of Propaganda and Disinformation.

Because it's so misleading, so obviously partisan, such a blatant attempt to brainwash Canadians with their own money.

I simply can't help myself...

For how else are you supposed to react to such totalitarian propaganda? Except laugh in the faces of those who made it.

Stephen Harper and the By-election Message Progressives Cannot Ignore

Wed, 11/19/2014 - 03:00

You'd think Stephen Harper would have been cheered by his two by-election victories in Ontario and Alberta.

But he wasn't. In the Commons yesterday he was tense and irritable.

And with good reason. For when you examine the results closely you can see that hidden in them are the seeds of his own destruction.

The Chaplain, the Con MP, and the Betrayal of the Legion

Tue, 11/18/2014 - 20:04

She's the latest victim of the Con regime's war on Canadian veterans. 

A Royal Canadian Legion chaplain who lost her position for having committed the ultimate crime in Stephen Harper's Canada:

Standing up for our veterans and our wounded soldiers.

Will Stephen Harper Really Take a Walk in the Snow?

Tue, 11/18/2014 - 03:21

When I first heard the rumours that Stephen Harper was about to go for a walk in the snow. Or whatever. 

And announce that he planned to step down in the New Year, I must admit I was stunned. It just didn't seem to make sense.

His fear campaign is boosting his polls, the unemployment rate is down, he's planning to spend billions of dollars bribing voters.

He's just launched this new Porky Action Plan campaign...

Aimed at brainwashing Canadians with OUR money.

And of course, he was the abominable star of the recent G20 summit...

So why would he choose to quit NOW, and give his job to Jason Kenney?

The Day Thousands Took to the Streets to Defend the CBC

Mon, 11/17/2014 - 03:25

It was a stirring sight. And for the beleaguered CBC it couldn't have come at a better time, or be more welcome.

Thousands of people marching in streets of Montreal and other places, to demand that the Harper regime stop killing the corporation.

CBC/Radio-Canada supporters gathered in Montreal, Matane, Sept-Îles, Quebec City, Saguenay, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Rimouski, Gaspé and Moncton in New Brunswick to protest against deep cuts and job losses at the Crown corporation.

And all I can say is it's about time.

Can War Be Made to Look Too Beautiful?

Mon, 11/17/2014 - 01:03

It was the most stunning and beautiful tribute to those who died in the First World War I have ever seen.

A sea of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London, one for every British or Commonwealth soldier killed in that war.

But now the poppies are being uprooted.

The Christmas lights are going on.

And when Sainsbury's, a big supermarket chain, tried to mix war and Christmas, it was accused of making war look too BEAUTIFUL...

The G20 Summit and the Day of Reckoning

Sun, 11/16/2014 - 22:39

It's hard to believe that it's been more than four years since the G20 Summit in Toronto, and my neighbourhood became a police state.

A dark sinister place where more than a thousand people were arrested, and caged like animals.

For no good reason.

And yes, the wheels of justice grind slowly.

Joe Oliver's Dangerously Reckless Budget Scam

Sun, 11/16/2014 - 04:58

Well as you know, I wasn't exactly impressed by Joe Oliver's totally political fiscal update, and by the way he is recklessly blowing the surplus.

To try to buy votes and leave no money in the cupboard, so the opposition can't make their own spending promises.

While also leaving no money for a rainy day should the economy take a dive, and oil prices keep tanking.

So I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks that Ol' Joe, and his equally incompetent master Stephen Harper, could be leading us to DISASTER.

Stephen Harper, Vladimir Putin, and the Great G20 Showdown

Sun, 11/16/2014 - 01:57

OMG. I see Stephen Harper has stolen the spotlight at the G20 summit, by going dictator to dictator, with Vladimir Putin.

Stephen Harper told Russian President Vladimir Putin flatly that he needs "to get out of Ukraine," when the two met at a Group of 20 summit of major economies in Brisbane.

Or mano a mano.

The Russian Leader stuck out his hand. Mr. Harper accepted the gesture but said to the Russian Leader: "I guess I'll shake your hand but I have only one thing to say to you, you need to get out of Ukraine."‎

In a crass attempt to make the summit all about him, and the ethnic vote.
