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.

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.

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 »
As you probably know the Preston Manning is holding a big Con Conclave in Ottawa, and it's not just the hookers who are quivering with excitement. So are the pundits and poobahs.Because it's the BIG EVENT !!! Given the potential for spirited and substantial political debate, is it any wonder that ManningFest has become one of the hottest political tickets in town?Which in itself tells you how low we have fallen eh?And that's BEFORE you check the guest list and discover that Mark Steyn is one of the main speakers…Read more »
It's hard to imagine a more outrageous performance in a Canadian parliament, or any parliament, than the one the Con MP Brad Butt offered up the other day.By first announcing that he had "personally witnessed" people picking voter cards out of the garbage, and using them to commit electoral fraud.And a few days later admitting he LIED.But unfortunately for our democracy there is more than one Con clown. And the latest Con clown show stars Peter Van Loan….Read more »
Yesterday I wrote about the sordid tale of the Con MP Brad Butt, who claimed that he had "personally witnessed" people picking up voting cards out of the garbage.So they could rush to the nearest polling station, with an accomplice to vouch for them, and commit voter fraud.Until he suddenly admitted it was all a Big Lie. A Con whopper if ever there was one.And It all happened so suddenly, I couldn't help wondering what had driven him to confess? Had Butt found Bejesus or what?But today the truth was revealed.Read more »
Well I think we can safely say that Stephen Harper didn't have a very good weekend.First his plans for the total destruction of Justin Trudeau at the Liberal convention failed miserably…
Greg Perry/Toronto StarWhen Justin managed to get away unscathed. Beep Beep.And his designated agent of personal destruction Pierre Poilievre was left looking like an IDIOT. Read more »
He's back in Canada after his disastrous trip to Mexico and rarely has he looked so diminished.For while he is desperately trying to spin the trip into a triumph, nothing can conceal the humiliation of this slap in the face. Read more »
I see that Rex Murphy has finally responded to complaints that he is in a conflict of interest when he attacks environmentalists on the CBC, while shilling for Big Oil.And that he has done it in his usual fashion, by trying to bury the inconvenient truth under a mountain of big words. Read more »
There's an old saying in Quebec, more Con or more stupid than that and you die.But it clearly doesn't apply in Ontario eh?Because if it did the loser Tim Hudak would be mummified by now. Instead of bouncing up and down like a Con clown.Read more »
About a week ago I wrote a post demanding to know why the CBC hadn't fired Rex Murphy for being a shill for Big Oil.And I assumed that because so many others had complained, and it was such an obvious conflict of interest, that the CBC would at least take those complaints seriously.But I was wrong. It turns out CBC management doesn't think Murphy is guilty of ANYTHING. Read more »
It's the winter that seems to have gone on forever. The bay is frozen solid.Like much of the Great Lakes.And I can't wait begin for it to warm up. Not just because I've got a roaring case of cabin fever.But also because the birds who live in the bay are suffering from the lack of open water…
With the magnificent swans being forced to share the few holes in the ice with hundreds of hungry ducks.And my only consolation is that what's happening here and in other parts of the world is going to help melt (Read more…)

I'm sure you remember how just over a month ago Stephen Harper set out to make his own propaganda movies.By making us pay to make him look good. With a weekly round-up of Great Leader's activities that resembles something you might encounter in a state like North Korea.Well I'm happy to report that the Harper Show is an absolute and total BUST.

As you probably know I have appointed myself the unofficial campaign manager (in the heathen areas) of Jason Kenney's leadership campaign.In the firm belief that if he replaces Stephen Harper the Cons will be gone for a GENERATION.And so far we're doing well, the wind and the Lord are in our sails, and as you can see from his twitter feed Jason is campaigning all-out. One moment he's in Newfoundland, the next moment he's in BC, while still managing to hit every church, mosque, synagogue, and temple in between.So you can imagine how horrified I was to read (Read more…)

I haven't write about Tim Hudak for a while because quite frankly I thought his Cons would have got rid of him by now. Since he is the best thing the Ontario Liberals and the NDP have going for them.And he is a real LOSER.But I see he has been calling himself a "winner" after the by-elections in Thornhill and Niagara Falls.Even though his party's loss in Niagara Falls, the riding next door to his own, was a HUMILIATING defeat.And this makes him sound like a MORON.

It's hard to believe after what the Harper Cons have done to our veterans, that they could treat or betray them even more than they already have.But that's exactly what they are doing. First they closed down those veteran service centres for no good reason.Now they're going after their healthcare plans. Read more »
It had to be one of the most bizarre sights I have ever seen in Question Period. And yet another sign that the Con regime is running out of steam, and Stephen Harper is losing his marbles.
For there was Jimbo Flaherty, on the day after his budget, sitting like a wax figure, or a garden gnome, while Great Ugly Leader answered all the questions directed at his muzzled Finance Minister.
And it does look a lot like the income splitting question is splitting the Con regime. Read more »
I like to think that Jim Flaherty's recent illness has made him a better human being, because I'm a firm believer in the power of redemption.And he has come a long way from the days when he was calling for the homeless to be jailed.But unfortunately he's still a Con, he still works for Stephen Harper, and his latest budget is nothing more than the product of a snake oil salesman.Read more »
Oh boy. I realize it's not easy to remain cheerful and optimistic in this dark Harperland. Not even in my little Hobbit Town where it's always Christmas.Not when this freezing winter seems to have gone on FOREVERAnd not when I can't even even tell my friends to cheer up, without risking getting an icy snowball in the back of the head. Ouch !#@!!!!But think of it this way eh?At least we know the answer to this three-year-old question…Read more »
I've always known he was a vociferous climate change denier, a wordier Ezra Levant. A shabby little demagogue who lards his windy diatribes with Con talking points.I recently found out that in addition to his gigs at CBC Television, CBC Radio, and the National Post, he also moonlights as a shill for Big Oil.A words-weary audience jumped to its feet with an enthusiastic ovation for broadcaster Rex Murphy after he urged pipeline builders Friday to stop being ashamed of the multibillion-dollar projects they are trying to build.But who knew that being an oily prophet, could be so profitable?

I'm sure you remember the last time Rob and Doug Ford got their own Ford Nation TV show.And how it had to be cancelled after just ONE episode. Because the Ford brothers stank out the joint.And crappy low budget Fox News North ran out of tape…
Well brace yourself, they're BAAAAACK !!!!With their even lower budget YouTube show…Read more »
Last night I pointed out something about the Con regime's so-called Fair Elections Act, that to my knowledge the entire MSM somehow managed to miss.And that is that this truly sinister bill is not just about satiating Stephen Harper's deranged hatred for Elections Canada, or increasing the Con fundraising advantage.It's also about suppressing the vote.Read more »
Well he wasn't available to answer questions in the House of Commons yesterday, no doubt having decided that discretion ducking and covering was the better part of valour. After having revealed his ghastly colours, again, by first bullying a group of elderly veterans in the most disgusting manner. Then "sincerely" apologizing, sort of. Only to claim it wasn't his fault, and that the vets had been duped by the unions. But Julian Fantino did manage to crawl into the Commons later in the day, to join his fellow Cons in crushing this NDP motion. Read more »
