Michelle Rempel and the Whitewashing of Stephen Harper

3 hours 24 sec ago

Well it seems that Michelle Rempel got what she wanted. Got comedian Mark Critch to surrender.

With a deranged Twitter rant, and a volley of vulgar words. 

Comedian Mark Critch has removed a photo mocking former prime minister Stephen Harper from his Instagram account following a barrage of tweets from a Conservative MP that included obscenities.

Which is both sad and pathetic.

But what the wretched Rempel will NEVER succeed in doing is bullying other Canadians into whitewashing the legacy of this pathetic loser.

Jason Kenney's Shameful Virtual Reality Campaign

5 hours 36 min ago

As we all know, Jason Kenney's burning ambition knows no limits.

Often exceeds the bounds of decency.

And his leadership abilities exist only in his fevered imagination.

And for more evidence of that please check out this photo from his Unite Alberta website.

The Cons and the Cult of Political Violence

Sun, 08/28/2016 - 05:24

The other day I wrote about how the threat of political violence was growing in Canada, and about all the death threats aimed at Justin Trudeau.

I wondered why the Ambrose Cons weren't doing anything to rein in their violent supporters.  

And I also wondered why the MSM had ignored this story for so long, even though it's so obvious, so disturbing, and so dangerous.

So I'm glad to see that Chantal Hébert has noticed a foul stench in the air.

Michael Harris On The Shabby Legacy of Stephen Harper

Sat, 08/27/2016 - 05:37

Yesterday I wrote a short post about Stephen Harper's legacy. 

It had to be short because there wasn't much legacy to write about.

Only the lingering stench of a nightmare that had to be lived to be believed.

And after spending every single day for almost ten years writing about Harper and his filthy un-Canadian regime I'm just about out of words.

So I thought I'd let Michael Harris, who fought the tyrant so well, render the final verdict.

Michelle Rempel's Scary and Vulgar Twitter Meltdown

Sat, 08/27/2016 - 02:40

As I'm sure you know, Michelle Rempel had a huge crush on Stephen Harper. 

A crush tempered only by her even stronger desire to have his job.

And as I'm sure you also know she's also a lover of fine wines...

So I'm sorry to report that when she heard that Harper had resigned, her love for him, and her love of wine, may have led to her worst Twitter meltdown EVER !!!!

The Day Stephen Harper Finally Resigned

Fri, 08/26/2016 - 10:07

Yes, it's true. After living high off the hog for about ten months after he was defeated and humiliated, the mad emperor has finally left the building.

Stephen Harper has finally resigned.

Stephen Harper is stepping down from Parliament and going into business, hoping that his credentials as a former G7 leader will lead to a successful consulting career on the international stage.

Now please stand by for a message from Great Fallen Leader.

Why Do So Many Cons Want To Kill Justin Trudeau?

Fri, 08/26/2016 - 03:23

A few weeks ago I was at a party in Edinburgh, and once they found out I was a Canadian, everyone I met wanted to ask me about Justin Trudeau.

Had I ever met him? Was he as cool as he seemed? When will he legalize marijuana?(So they know when to visit Canada.)

And how they wished he was their Prime Minister.

And although I was forced to admit that I hadn't voted for Justin. Which was embarrassing eh?

When I stumbled back to my hotel room, I was feeling pretty good about myself and my country.

Until I saw this story.

What Exactly Is Jason Kenney Peddling in Alberta?

Fri, 08/26/2016 - 00:02

I've always thought that Jason Kenney was a bit of a snake oil salesman.

For what else can explain that after spending twenty years in Ottawa he should think he's the only one who can unite the right in Alberta?

Or explain why he thinks that Canadians should keep paying him his MP's salary, while he campaigns for another job?

But now I really have to wonder what exactly is that ghastly Con peddling?

The Con Media's Disgusting Attack on the Trudeau Government

Thu, 08/25/2016 - 03:57

Yesterday I wrote about how Rona Ambrose and her Cons were going after the decent Health Minister Jane Philpott for having rented a limo Lexus to travel around the Greater Toronto Area.

Instead of taking a taxi or a bus.

As well as going after the equally decent Environment Minister Katherine McKenna, for the "crime" of having spent about $6,000 on photographs at the Paris climate summit.

Even though the Harper regime spent millions doing the same thing.

But what makes this grotesque assault even more disgusting is the way the Con media are trying to make it look like a major scandal.

Rona Ambrose and the Attempted Lynching of Jane Philpott

Wed, 08/24/2016 - 03:05

It's not a pretty sight, but Rona Ambrose and her Con bullies are in a high state of excitation.

They think they've found another helpless target, and a massive scandal that will destroy the Liberal government.

And no, this time it isn't the nannies and the Trudeau children they are going after.

It's the Health Minister Jane Philpott.

Stephen Harper, Jason Kenney, and the Pension Pigs

Tue, 08/23/2016 - 03:59

As we know Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney have been in the same leaky boat, or the same sweaty closet, from the day the Con regime was crushed and humiliated.

Still collecting their big fat MP pay cheques, while doing nothing to deserve them.

With Harper setting up his own business, and Kenney campaigning for another job in Alberta.

But now at last it seems they are finally about to summon up the courage to resign.

And it turns out it won't be THAT painful.

Donald Trump and the Pseudo Medical War on Hillary Clinton

Mon, 08/22/2016 - 03:34

It couldn't be a more bizarre allegation, considering the way Donald Trump has been behaving recently.

Or his advanced state of desperation.

But believe it or not, Trump and his RepubliCon clowns are now suggesting that Hillary Clinton is suffering from some kind of mysterious illness, that makes her, not him, unfit to be President.

As his pathetic stooge Rudy Giuliani was claiming last night on Fox News.

Gord Downie, the Tragically Hip, and the Canada I Love

Sun, 08/21/2016 - 03:53

It took me a few years to  fall in love with the Tragically Hip. I always loved their name, I thought it was so cool hip.

And when I heard that their lead singer was a poet I was even more impressed.

But it wasn't until my big brother took me to one of their shows, that I realized what a great band they were.

And their final performance last night was the best and most moving show I have ever seen.

Jason Kenney and Alberta's Last Political Cowboy

Sat, 08/20/2016 - 05:46

With every passing day Jason's Kenney's tour of Alberta in a Made in Mexico pick up truck becomes even more outrageous, and even more expensive.

For while one might hope that Kenney is paying for his own hair cuts...

We're still paying his MP's salary.

Donald Trump's Deeply Disturbing New Attack Ad

Sat, 08/20/2016 - 02:00

Well there he was in flood ravaged Louisiana yesterday, trying to portray himself as a kinder, gentler Donald Trump.

The great uniter instead of the great divider.

But let nobody be fooled by those hollow words.

Catching Up With the Adventures of the Republican Clown Donald Trump

Fri, 08/19/2016 - 03:06

During the almost three weeks I spent in Scotland, I wasn't able to follow the adventures of the RepubliCon clown Donald Trump as closely as I normally do.

Because as you may know, most Scots can't stand Trump and would rather ignore him.

So you can imagine how surprised I was to turn on CNN when I got home last night, and see the angry orange sounding almost reasonable.

Scotland and the Battle to Free Canada

Wed, 08/17/2016 - 22:42

Every year when I return to my family home in Scotland I find myself doing the same things.

Reliving my childhood on the massive beaches that line the north east coast.

Returning to the bay where I first learned to sail, as the jet fighters from the nearby RAF base scream overhead.

The Con Media Finally Goes After Jason Kenney

Tue, 08/16/2016 - 19:05

For more than two weeks Jason Kenney has been rolling around Alberta in his foreign made pick up truck.

Raising money for his campaign to unite the right, while collecting a big juicy pay cheque from his other job in Ottawa.
As our useless Con media looked on and said nothing.
But at last that might changing.

Benjamin Perrin and the Murky Case of Jason Kenney

Mon, 08/15/2016 - 21:13

You may remember Benjamin Perrin, the PMO lawyer who worked for Stephen Harper at the height of the Duffy Affair.

But who later turned against the Con regime declaring that it had lost the moral authority to govern.

Well now he's taking aim at one of that regimes most infamous members.
