Warren Kinsella: ISIS: the right decision, finally

Quote, from the (simply amazing) Bob Fife: “Sources say Canadian Special Forces are expected to continue training Kurdish militia, and the number of trainers will more than double to about 150. CF-18s will be pulled out, but two CP-140 Aurora reconnaissance aircraft and a CC-150 aerial refuelling plane are expected to stay in place.

Warren Kinsella: The media are not the enemy

…but they’re not your friend, either, alleged Jian Ghomeshi victims. Occasionally giving in to chase producers is no sin. But when a criminal probe is underway, or about to be? Zip your lip, and resist every microphone pointed in your direction. At that point, speaking up only helps out the guy you say is a bad guy.

Warren Kinsella: Messrs. Honderich and Crawley, a worried nation turns its eyes to you

Read this. Read David Olive’s brutal indictment of Paul Godfrey and the guild of vampires who have destroyed Canadian print journalism. No other democratic nation would have permitted what Godfrey and his cabal were licenced to do by the Harper government. No other nation’s regulatory authorities would have looked the other way, as a murder […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Messrs. Honderich and Crawley, a worried nation turns its eyes to you

Warren Kinsella: The courage of Michelle Rempel

Full disclosure, as they say: this former (Conservative) cabinet minister is my (Liberal) wife’s best friend. They became friends some years ago, drawn together – with other women, from other parties – by their unapologetic opposition to the sexism and/or misogyny that is endemic in our politics. Still.  Also disclosure: we knew about the criminal […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: The courage of Michelle Rempel

Warren Kinsella: Best quote of 2016 so far, on Trump, and possibly of all time

While explaining that he believes that Donald Trump’s success in the Republican party does not mean that establishment conservatism is dying, GOP strategist Rick Wilson dismissed the “childless single men” who support Trump’s presidential bid.   “The fact of the matter is, most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime.
