Stephen Harper and the Hidden Story of the Anti-Gay Judge

Sun, 12/21/2014 - 04:16

The other day I wrote about how appalled I was to see that Stephen Harper, and his ghastly stooge Peter MacKay, had appointed an anti-gay judge. 

A law professor named an Ontario judge this week wrote two years ago for a conservative, U.S.-based institute that the legalization of same-sex marriage in Canada has harmed religious freedom and free speech, and led to the “indoctrination” of children in public schools.

Who sounded like he had sprung from the bowels of bigot America.

But then I decided to find out more about Bradley Miller. 

And now I'm even more DISGUSTED.

The War on Christmas is Over Somebody Tell Nina Grewal

Sat, 12/20/2014 - 22:52

Well I know it may be hard to believe, but it seems like that old Con favourite, the imaginary War on Christmas, is finally over.

The Fox News nutbar Bill O'Reilly has declared victory. Again.

"I won the 'War on Christmas!'" he said. "I've been doing this for about 10 years and this is the only year we have not had a store that commanded its employees not to say 'Merry Christmas.'" "It's over, we won," he proclaimed.

And this time he may actually be right.

Stephen Harper's Monstrous Propaganda War on Canadians

Sat, 12/20/2014 - 05:32

We know that Stephen Harper and his ghastly Con regime run the biggest propaganda machine this country has ever seen.

And that they have spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to brainwash us with our own money.

But who knew they're also spending a fortune trying to pass off propaganda as NEWS?

The Ghastly Con Nightmare Before Christmas

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 17:02

Golly. When I think of the Cons reciting "Twas the Night Before Christmas" all I can think of is "The Nightmare before Christmas."

Because Christmas and the brutish Harperland were definitely not made for each other.

But believe it or not, the real version, is even SCARIER !!!!

Stephen Harper and his CRA Stormtroopers Prepare to Kill a Charity

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 05:31

For months Stephen Harper has been unleashing the stormtroopers from the Canadian Revenue Agency upon his many enemies.

They have been harassing environmental groups and other progressive charities, and trying to cripple them into submission.

But now it seems they have claimed their first victim, and are preparing to blast it out of existence.

Michael Harris REALLY Doesn't Like Peter Mansbridge

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 04:20

As I said in my last post, I wasn't impressed with the way Peter Mansbridge handled his year end interview with Stephen Harper.

I thought he stroked Great Crazy Leader with a feather, and failed to challenge his many lies, or ask the follow up questions that needed to be asked.

So the whole thing looked more like a cozy chat than an interview.

But I see that Michael Harris was even less impressed.

Stephen Harper's Crazy Carbon Tax problem

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 03:04

As I've been warning recently, Stephen Harper's mental state is clearly growing more unstable by the day.

The exhaustion of all those foreign photo-ops, combined with the shock of seeing his beloved Albertonia torpedoed by low oil prices, and his budget surplus going up in flames, has driven him to the brink.

And there is no better example of that than his wildly oscillating position on a carbon tax.

Just ten days ago he called one "crazy." Or CRAAAAAAAZY.

But in the CBC interview the other night, while being stroked with a feather by Peter Mansbridge, he all but called it a good idea.

Stephen Harper's New and Foul Assault on the Justice System

Thu, 12/18/2014 - 05:37

Well I guess Stephen Harper wasn't kidding. If the courts wouldn't kneel before him he would debase them into submission.

Not by simply soiling himself.

But by soiling the entire justice system as only he could.

By among other foul things appointing an Ontario judge who clearly doesn't believe in the equality of gay Canadians.

Stephen Harper's Scary Year End Horror Show

Thu, 12/18/2014 - 03:08

I tried to put it off as I could, I was having too much of a good time to spoil it. 

Humming Christmas tunes, fixing one of my little robots, and playing with my neighbour's puppy.

But eventually I figured I better check out Peter Mansbridge's interview with Stephen Harper. And oh boy did that ruin my evening.

Because it was an absolute HORROR show.

Happy Birthday Chelsea Manning

Wed, 12/17/2014 - 16:39

It's been five years since the young American soldier now known as Chelsea Manning began downloading hundreds of thousands of Pentagon files.

And in the process not only revealed the horror, the brutality, and the hypocrisy of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the diplomatic world. But also the U.S. intelligence machine's most closely guarded secret.

That in order to spy on their enemies, they would now spy on us ALL.

The Day Stephen Harper Collided With Crude Reality

Wed, 12/17/2014 - 13:44

You could can see the strain in his face, he can't hide it anymore, even under all that pancake makeup.

He's still trying to pretend that those tanking oil prices won't affect his plans to try to buy the next election, or balance the budget.

Even though he recklessly blew the surplus before he even had one.

But it's just not working, and with every passing day he's sounding more and more delusional.

Albertonia Report: The Wild Hog Party Goes Down Squealing

Wed, 12/17/2014 - 03:26

It could only happen in Alberta, the land of cowboy Steve and not so Big Oil, Canada's Banana Republic.

Where the leader of the opposition, after attacking the Con government for five years, and trailing them in the polls by only five points.

Has suddenly decided that if you can't beat them, you should join them.

And is apparently leading half her Wild Hog Party back to the trough.

The Further Insane Adventures of Peter Dumbo Mackay

Tue, 12/16/2014 - 17:58

Once upon a time I thought that Peter MacKay was a fairly harmless Con buffoon, of limited intelligence, masquerading as a minister.

The happy idiot who was easily conned into selling the once proud Progressive Conservative party, and his soul, to Stephen Harper and his Reform rednecks.

The hopeless loser who shamelessly used his neighbour's dog to try to guilt out his ex-girlfriend Belinda Stronach...

For having had the good sense to break-up with him.

But now I'm starting to think that Dumbo MacKay is morphing into something far more sinister.

Stephen Harper, Tony Abbott, and the Great Terrorist Conspiracy

Tue, 12/16/2014 - 04:14

It all looks and sounds so familiar. A wild looking gunman terrorizes a cafe in Sydney, killing two people, and traumatizing a city and nation.

And even though police say there is no evidence the man was a real terrorist, the country's Prime Minister is quick to plant that idea in the minds of his people.

Stephen Harper and the Secrets of the Con Regime

Tue, 12/16/2014 - 01:34

He runs the most shadowy government in Canadian history. Where everything is either a secret or a talking point.

He likes to muzzle the truth. Or bury it. 

Like his shameless minions have just been caught doing with this climate change report.

Is Stephen Harper's Golden Ride Finally Over?

Mon, 12/15/2014 - 14:18

The other day I told you that Stephen Harper's roller coaster rise in the polls appeared to have finally ended.

And today there is more evidence of that.

This poll from Ekos...

And this even more encouraging one from Forum.

Stephen Harper's Hugely Embarrassing Jewish Problem

Mon, 12/15/2014 - 03:15

The fuse has been burning ever since Benjamin Netanyahu set out to make Israel the nation-state of the Jewish people.

A controversial bill that officially defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people has been approved by cabinet despite warnings that the move risks undermining the country’s democratic character. 

Opponents, including some cabinet ministers, said the new legislation defined reserved “national rights” for Jews only and not for its minorities, and rights groups condemned it as racist.

It's an issue that is bitterly dividing Israelis, and Jews all over the world. 

But from Stephen Harper and his Con regime, who like to pose as Israel's best friends ever, there has been only silence.

What Would You Tell Stephen Harper If He Tried to Shake Your Hand?

Sun, 12/14/2014 - 23:01

It's a horrible thought, and it could only happen in a nightmare.

But what if you were wandering through a deathly dreamscape, and suddenly there was Stephen Harper, offering to shake your hand?

What WOULD you say to him?

And while that could never happen to me, because I'd rather cut off my hand than shake his, or run in the opposite direction, or moon him.

I have to say I think Gerald Caplan has a list of very good suggestions.

Who's the Real Immigration Minister Chris Alexander or Jason Kenney?

Sun, 12/14/2014 - 03:05

Ever since he was made a minister I've made it pretty clear what I think of Chris Alexander.

How he reminds of the character in The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Who after selling his soul to Stephen Harper, morphed from a promising young diplomat into a ghastly Con monster...

But who knew he was so incompetent?

Ezra Levant and Brian Lilley's Disastrous Freedom Tour

Sat, 12/13/2014 - 23:34

Well it was always going to be a freak show. Ezra Levant and Brian Lilley, the two Con clowns from Sun TV, on a so-called Free Speech Tour.

Spewing bigotry out of every orifice, and asking their faithful followers suckers to pay for the privilege of watching them live and in person.

But who knew it would be such a bust or such an execrable adventure?
