Montreal Simon: Why Does the Chicken Hawk Jason Kenney Lie So Much?

Well let nobody say that I didn't warn them. I predicted that Jason Kenney would be the worst Defence Minister this country has ever known.A Cold War warrior, a chubby chicken hawk, who would lead us to disaster.Or judging by the crazy stuff he tweets…

Help trigger the Third World War.I knew he didn't know what he was doing. But who knew he would lie all the time?Read more »

Montreal Simon: Jason Kenney Disgraces Himself Again

Yesterday I confidently predicted that Jason Kenney would be the worst Defence Minister this country has ever known.And I accused him of being a holy hypocrite, for claiming he was reaching out to Muslims in this country. While subtly working to whip up hate against them, for crass political purposes.And sure enough now I see he has proved me right.In just two tweets.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Calculated Bigotry of the Con Regime

It's already the most disgusting election campaign in modern Canadian history. With Stephen Harper fanning the flames of anti-Muslim bigotry in Quebec.And the Con MP, and former Harper communications director John Williamson depositing this racist turd at the Manning Networking Conference:"My part of the country, I deal with temporary foreign workers and the interaction with employment insurance, and it makes no sense from my point of view — I'm going to put this in terms of colours but it's not meant to be about race — it makes no sense to pay 'whities' to stay home while we bring in (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Jason Kenney and the Great Con Clown War on Terror

As you probably know, I'm still having a REALLY hard time coming to terms with the brutal fact that Jason Kenney is Canada's Defence Minister.The very thought that a chubby chickenhawk and religious fanatic like Kenney should be in charge of any armed force is frankly frightening.Especially now that the Great War on Terror and/or Muslims seems to have inflamed him. He can't stop playing Patton.And sounding like Strangelove…Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Days of Drums and Dummies

He's rushing his dangerously flawed anti-terrorist bill through the House of Commons, to the machine gun beat of a fascist drum.Bill C-51, the government's proposed anti-terror law, has passed second reading in the House of Commons with a vote of 176-87 and will now be sent to committee.He didn't bother to show up for the debate, he cut it off after a few hours. He says he needs the bill NOW to protect us from the terrorists and the niqabs that are EVERYWHERE.Even though the bill threatens our freedoms more than the terrorists do, and he's just playing (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Jason Kenney’s Sorry and Surrealistic Terrorist Game

Well let nobody say I didn't warn them. I predicted Jason Kenney would be the worst possible Defence Minister for these troubled times.I knew that sexually repressed religious fanatic would be inflamed by a religious war, and the sight of so many men in uniform.And would soon lose control of himself, start shooting his mouth off, and trying to turn our mini-war in Iraq into an all-out crusade.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Jason Kenney and the Strangelove Cons

It was just a coincidence that the Turner Classic Movie channel should be running Dr Strangelove yesterday.On the same day that Jason Kenney made his first major speech as the Con regime's new Defence Minister.But in a way it seemed strangely appropriate, because I did have trouble distinguishing between the two movies. Or deciding which one was more hilarious or more deeply disturbing. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Slow Melting of the Con Regime

Well I see that Stephen Harper has been spending more time in the tiny Con bastion of Quebec City.And it seems only appropriate that he should stage this photo-op at the city's Ice Hotel.Considering the state of his government, and the way his support is in danger of melting. Read more »

Political Eh-conomy: Jason Kenney gets a growth portfolio

Jason Kenney has long been one of Stephen Harper’s trusted lieutenants and after yesterday’s cabinet reshuffle, he is now Minister of National Defence. In Harperland, this is a decisive promotion: from the “ugh, why are we still doing this?” of Employment and Social Development to the prestigious, patriotic defence portfolio. While the Conservatives promote an image of sound economic and fiscal management, it is clear that they will attempt to frame the upcoming election in large part in terms of security and terrorism — and Jason Kenney will now be instrumental in their fear-mongering campaign.

For Kenney this is (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Joe Oliver, Stephen Harper, and the Baloney Cons

As you probably know, I've got a sinking feeling that Oily Joe Oliver is not going to save us from our present economic predicament.Not when he helped create the oily apocalypse. Not when he doesn't know what he's doing. And is not only a bumbling buffoon, but also a ghastly hypocrite. Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Humiliation of Jason Kenney and the Desperation of the Cons

Yesterday I wrote about how Jason Kenney was embarrassed, when he claimed in a CTV interview that the government would use budget cuts to easily balance the budget. But wouldn't touch the rainy day fund set aside for emergencies, like natural disasters. Because you know, the Con regime is a RESPONSIBLE government, Only to have an anonymous Finance Department official say exactly the opposite. They're NOT planning budget cuts, but they ARE thinking of going after the rainy day fund.Which as I pointed out, left Kenney looking like an idiot or a dunce…Read more » - Alberta Politics: What a year 2015 has been in Alberta politics!

Montreal Simon: Who’s the Real Immigration Minister Chris Alexander or Jason Kenney?

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?Read more »

Montreal Simon: Who Is Surprised That Jason Kenney Should Jump Into the Gutter?

Well you all know the sordid story. How Jason Kenney used a tape secretly recorded by the sinister Con operative Alexandra Constantinidis, to go after Marlo Raynolds, a Liberal candidate in Alberta. Who the Con Mata Hari told Kenney had criticized his beloved income splitting program, the one he designed to keep women at home barefoot and pregnant…

Only to discover that he had gone after the wrong guy. But rather than admit his mistake, produced a so-called audio expert to try to prove a voice on the tape was really Raynolds. Well now another audio expert has come forward to question (Read more…) . . . → Read More: Montreal Simon: Who Is Surprised That Jason Kenney Should Jump Into the Gutter?

Montreal Simon: The Day Jason Kenney Got Taken to the Woodshed

I have written about Jason Kenney's outrageous collaboration with the shadowy Con operative Alexandra ConstantinidisHow he used her secretly taped recording to go after a Liberal candidate.How he refused to apologize after it turned out to be the wrong guy.And instead delivered this crazed diatribe…

But now he has finally ran out of hot air, or been sedated, and has been taken to the woodshed by the Globe and Mail. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Where YOU Get to be the Judge of the Con Clown Awards

As you know I've been having a bit of trouble lately trying to decide who should be awarded my monthly weekly daily Con Clown Award.There are just so many candidates, starting with Great Leader, who deserve it so much.And today it was just too hard, and too dark in Harperland, for me to make up my mind. So I'm going to have to ask you my beloved readers, to decide who should receive that award.Read more »

Progressive Proselytizing: The Conservative’s scripted talking points get them into trouble

This little scandal Tories have gotten themselves into is a bit delightful, but underscores a more important point about the dissemination of talking points. The problem started when a Conservative operative secretly recorded a conversation including, allegedly, a Liberal MP Rob Anders saying some not-so-lovely things about the people benefiting from the Conservative’s income splitting proposals. The problem? It now appears it wasn’t the Liberal MP who said it, but the conservative supporter he was talking to.  In the short time after Sun news put this up, no less than four MPs – including Employment Minister Jason Kenney – (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Jason Kenney and the Shameless Con Zombies

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.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper, Jason Kenney, and the Con Clown Circus

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 !!!!Read more »

Montreal Simon: Will Stephen Harper Really Take a Walk in the Snow?

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 (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Omar Khadr’s Important Message to Canadians

It's been more than twelve years since he was horribly wounded in a firefight in Afghanistan. Then jailed and tortured in that hellhole called Guantanamo, even though he was a child soldier. Then betrayed by his own government. He is Canada's most famous prisoner, and yet for all that time he has also been its most invisible citizen. Never seen and never heard from. But now at last Omar Khadr has had a chance to address his fellow Canadians. And his words couldn't be more moving. Read more »

Montreal Simon: My Scary Halloween in Harperland

Well I'm glad Halloween is over, because it really is a challenge trying to scare people in Harperland.Where every day is Halloween and scarier than the day before. Especially if you're forced to run or hop around in a bunny suit that's at least two sizes too small. And people laugh at you instead of scream.But while I recover from last night's events, I thought I'd show you a few Halloween pictures and ask YOU to decide which one is scarier.Read more »
