Well they're not pretty, but they are fanatics, they'll do anything for their deranged leader.
Dark and dirty things that have turned our country into a horror show.
But don't bother asking how much Stephen Harper pays his grubby PMO gang, his little monsters.
Because that's a state secret. Read more »
Well it wasn't a total surprise, but it was still a stunning sight.
Pauline Marois and her new star candidate Pierre-Karl Péladeau
Pierre-Karl Péladeau, controlling shareholder of the Quebecor media empire, on Sunday announced he will run for the Parti Québécois, saying his top motivation is to make Quebec independent.
“My joining the Parti Québécois is tied to my most intimate and profound values and that is to say I want Quebec to become a country,” he told supporters in the riding of St-Jérôme, just north of Montreal, where he will be running in the April 7 provincial election.Read more »
Oh boy. Talk about a roller coaster of emotions eh?
Yesterday I wrote a post about Vic Toews being appointed as a judge in Manitoba's top trial court.
And although it's a horrible story, about an appalling choice, I had a little fun with it...Because I like to mock the Cons as well as criticize them.
And because politically speaking, Vic Toews does exist somewhere in the dead zone between neanderthal and right-wing zombie.
So you can imagine how stunned I was to see this story. Read more »
Uh oh. It looks as if Pierre Poilievre's demagogic defence of the foul Fair Elections Act, also known as the Voter Suppression Bill, is going down in flames.
Because now that sinister Con fanatic is batting ZERO for FOUR.Read more »
It's a horrible nightmare. I'm driving down a country road in rural Manitoba on a dark and stormy night, when my car breaks down.
And before I know it I'm forced to run for my life.
But I make it into this small hamlet, report the zombie invasion to the bubbah sheriff.
Only to be arrested and dragged before Judge Toews. Read more »
It couldn't have been a more revolting spectacle. Canada's Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand called to testify before a House of Commons committee.
To talk about the foul voter suppression bill known as the Fair Elections Act, and the Harper regime's attempts to muzzle him.
Only to have the Cons try to muzzle him again, by breaking a deal they had with the opposition, and scheduling a vote in the Commons, just as Mayrand was preparing to address the committee.
Which had even the MSM gasping in disbelief.Read more »
I'm glad the mother of Cpl. Justin Stark decided to speak out about the one-cent cheque the government sent her dead son.
And that the Cons were forced to apologize, for the pain that was caused.
The mother of a dead Hamilton, Ont., soldier who received a cheque for one cent from the federal government has accepted an apology from Defence Minister Rob Nicholson but said the incident has reopened wounds.
So hopefully it doesn't happen again, because it has happened before.Read more »

Golly. Can you believe it? It seems Stephen Harper and the Con regime have changed their minds about marijuana.
Forget everything they said before, or the disgusting way they tried to smear Justin Trudeau.
Justin is still a junkie, but the killer weed is NOT the source of all EVIL. Read more »
Well I think it's safe to say it's the last thing Stephen Harper needed, what with all his other scandals.
It must be a bit like Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Past.
But like it it or not old Brucie is BAAAACK !!!! Read more »
For some reason I've always assumed that the Cons were rushing their foul voter suppression bill through Parliament, so they could try to steal the next election like they tried to steal the last one.
For why else would they be in such a hurry? Why else would they even ignore the critical comments of the Con Godfather Preston Manning?
But now Lawrence Martin has reminded me of another possible reason. They're trying to cover their asses from the fallout of the robocall scandal. Read more »
It could only happen in Harperland, a place where decency goes to die, and the Big Lie rules.Where a Con MP can lie outrageously about personally witnessing election fraud.
And get away with it shamelessly.Read more »
This is the story of two cheques.
This big fat one...
The one Nigel Wright sent to Mike Duffy.To cover up a sordid scandal.
And this one, in the miserable amount of one cent...That went to Justin Stark who killed himself after serving his country. Read more »
Golly. Can you believe it eh?
The Con clown Brad Butt has finally got his ass spanked. Sort of.
By the Speaker of the House of Commons. Read more »
Well he went down to Los Angeles where he was given the celebrity treatment by Jimmy Kimmel.
It all went to his head like a hit from a crack pipe.
Until he left Tinseltown tonight, feeling like a sucker. Read more »
It's hard to imagine a scarier situation than the threat of a superpower confrontation in the Crimean peninsula.
The Obama administration said Monday that any Russian threat to Ukraine's navy would be a "dangerous escalation" of an extremely tense situation.
The State Department said that Washington would hold Moscow directly accountable for such an escalation but did not elaborate on potential consequences.
Or a scarier sight than the old Cold War warrior John McCain, banging his tin drum for war with Russia. Read more »
If Stephen Harper thought he could get away with his foul assault on democracy, by ramming his so-called Fair Elections Act through Parliament, after this weekend he must be having second thoughts.
Because first he got spanked by the Godfather of the Conservative movement, Preston Manning, for trying to muzzle the chief electoral officer.
And now a former chief electoral officer has pointed out yet another flaw in that anti-democratic bill. Read more »
In the 1970's a Nimbus satellite first revealed a giant hole in the sea ice around Antarctica, which appeared every winter for three years.
Only to disappear and not be seen again since.
Now some Canadian scientists have figured out why, and the implications couldn't be more ominous. Read more »
If the crisis in Ukraine wasn't so ominous, the sight of the Harper Cons mobilizing for war would be absolutely hilarious.
Stephen Harper sucking in his gut, puffing out his chest, inflating his propaganda balloon, talking tough to the fascist dwarf Vladimir Putin.
Ominous developments in Ukraine have prompted Prime Minister Stephen Harper to strongly condemn Russian military intervention in the country while urging President Vladimir Putin to withdraw his troops immediately.
John Baird going the extra mile to win the Ukrainian-Canadian vote...Read more »
There are many issues that could topple Stephen Harper off his throne.
His party could get tired of him like so many other Canadians. The sordid scandals could engulf him. The police could arrest him.
But the two issues that could probably do him the most damage are trust and taxes.
And right now he's failing both of them. Read more »
