Montreal Simon: The Main Reason Stephen Harper Must Be Defeated

This photo was released today by the Con Ministry of Propaganda, and is apparently designed to portray Stephen Harper as a leader bearing the burden of governing this country as only he can.The man with the lonely job of steering this country through a dark and perilous time.But to me it represents something completely different.It's the portrait of a monster, who is threatening to destroy this country.The sinister representation of a man The Tyee calls a serial abuser of power.

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Lies That Will Destroy Him

After only two days of this marathon election campaign, Stephen Harper's strategy seems only too obvious.Repeat a Big Lie over and over again, magnify it with his propaganda machine.And hope that he can brainwash Canadians into believing that he really is a Great Economist Leader.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Porky Election Call

It seems only fitting that Stephen Harper should kick off his last election campaign, in the same way he has governed this country.By seeking to extract maximum political advantage from the withered carcass of our democracy.By making it only too clear that the H in Harper stands for hypocrisy. Or hog.And of course by lying like a thief. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Insanity of Harperland

I'm glad I'm leaving Canada for a while because I really need to get away from this ghastly political monster.Who is now so desperate, he is turning his depraved Harperland into a mad house.For there he was in a Bloomberg interview claiming that he was a Great Economist Leader, the steady hand on the wheel.And that letting anyone else steer Canada through these perilous times could only lead to disaster.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Who Says the Cons Aren’t Trying to Buy the Election?

As I mentioned in my last post, Stephen Harper and his criminal Con gang now seem to have a triple-edged strategy.They are going to try to cripple the opposition by extending the campaign. They are going to use the financial advantage that gives them by bombarding us with their porky ads.Even if it costs taxpayers millions of dollars.And of course they are going to use our money to try to buy the election.But even by their grubby standards this is outrageous.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Final Battle for Canada

For ten long years he has schemed and plotted to destroy the Canada he hates so much, by perverting our traditions, and dismembering our democracy.And now he's got a new plan that he hopes will do both.Force a long and exhausting election campaign upon Canadians, so he can bombard them with ads from his well funded propaganda machine, while draining the money like blood out of the opposition.So he can claw them to death in the final stages of the campaign.And it seems that the Final Battle for Canada is about to begin.

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Pathetic Con Sheeple

Well never let it be said that the Harper Cons are not a cult, or a herd of pathetic sheeple.A baaing bunch incapable of independent thought, who can only repeat word for word what the PMO tells them.As even their so-called Finance Minister, the hapless stooge Joe Oliver, does all the time…

And for even more evidence of that please consult the following video.Read more »

Montreal Simon: When Progressives Fire Back At the Con Attack Machine

As you know, I wasn't too impressed by the latest Con attack ad aimed at the NDP. And I'm sure Tom Mulcair wasn't either.Because when Stephen Harper accuses you of being as corrupt as he is, that could be dangerous. You could die LAUGHING.But then I also hate the never ending Con attack ads aimed at Justin Trudeau.Because every time I see this ghastly geezer on TV I feel like screaming.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Hog Harper’s Absurd and Desperate Assault on the NDP

It couldn't be more grotesque, it couldn't be more hypocritical, it couldn't be more laughable.

After smearing his own excrement all over this country, the lowlife political hog Stephen Harper is now accusing the NDP of being corrupt.

By firing this attack ad at them out of his rear orifice.Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Day Stephen Harper Lost His Economic Crown

The other day I ran a video of Joe Oliver literally running for cover, so he didn't have to answer questions from reporters about the state of the economy. And explain why the Parliamentary Budget Officer says he has a billion dollar DEFICIT instead of a billion dollar SURPLUS as he has been claiming.And now I'm sorry to report that Oily Joe is STILL running, so is Stephen Harper.

And the Cons are trying their best to make sure they never have to answer that burning question.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper’s Stealthy Assault On Our Judicial System

All through the long and dark years of Stephen Harper's evil regime the Supreme Court of Canada has been his most mighty opponent.Time and time again it has rejected his foul and flawed bills that would have turned us into a monstrous police state, or a vengeful theocracy.It has been the last bastion of Canadian values that the depraved tyrant has been unable to corrupt or destroy.But what most people don't know, and as the Globe's Sean Fine points out, Harper has been slowly undermining the court from below. By stealthily remaking our judiciary in his own monstrous image. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Simon’s Summer and the Great Con War on the Senate

Well I have to admit that I too am now deep into the Canadian summer, and don't feel like writing about politics, or doing anything too strenuous. I just want to have fun with my buddy Sébastien.As humble as that might be. Yikes. How low have I fallen?But I just HAD to share this great joke with you.It seems that Stephen Harper and his fellow oil pimp Brad Wall are about to declare war on the Con Senate !!! Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Day Stephen Harper Was Exposed As a Con Artist

For weeks Stephen Harper and his grubby flying monkey Joe Oliver, have been trying to fool Canadians into thinking that they had balanced the budget for the first time in eight years.Harper has been travelling around claiming that the economic shock waves that are rocking this country are just a "downturn" not a recession. And that he still has the money to bribe them.While the senile simian Oliver has been claiming that he has a surplus not a deficit.But yesterday all those claims came tumbling down, and both men were exposed as shameless Con artists.

Montreal Simon: Why Stephen Harper’s Porky Plan to Buy the Election Won’t Work

Well there was Stephen Harper yesterday, looking and sounding like a sleazy used car salesman, declaring it was Christmas in July, and feverishly trying to buy an election.And in all the years of writing about him and his corrupt, morally depraved regime, I don't think I've ever seen a more disgusting spectacle.Two days ago in this letter marked "confidential" he was urging his caucus to look like Con Santas, and lie like thieves.Let me be perfectly clear: if Justin Trudeau and Tom Mulcair form the next government, they will take these benefits away from families, raise taxes, and (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Pierre Poilievre and the Con Christmas in July

I don't think I've ever seen such a scary tricycle scene since the famous one in the horror movie The Shining.You know this one.Pierre Polievre aka Mini Harper or Dickhead, pedalling furiously all over Canada pretending he's Santa Claus.And that it's Christmas in July.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Great Con War on Pensions and Seniors

I've written a lot of posts about the Stephen Harper and his Great Con War on Pensions and Seniors for a couple of very simple reasons.I like old people, I work and care for them all the time. I see far too many of them suffering the indignities of poverty in a country as rich as Canada. I will not remain quiet when so many are suffering in silence.And of course I loathe and despise foul bullies like Jesus Harper with every bone in my body.So now I'm writing another post, because as Martin Regg Cohn writes, (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Growing Anger of Canadians

I don't know why it's taken so long for many Canadians to be angered by Stephen Harper, considering what he has done to Canada.But a new EKOS poll shows that anger is growing.And it has a lot to do with the state of the economy. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Con Plan to Steal the Election

It was a day of good news and bad news on the election front yesterday.The good news is that now that we know that Stephen Harper is cancelling his annual trip to the Arctic, we know that he is almost certainly going drop the writ much sooner than expected. So we can be ready, and try to foil his plans to buy the election.And the bad news? A judge has approved his devious plan to try to steal it. Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Early Election Call and the Cowardice of Stephen Harper

As you know I'm deeply concerned by the horrible thought that Stephen Harper could ruin our summer, or steal it, as only Great Maniac Leader could.By calling an election one month earlier than most people had expected. So he can use a longer campaign to bankrupt his opponents.So I'm very glad to see that at least the NDP isn't worried. Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Con Oil Pimp Brad Wall Declares War on Central Canada

Oh great. Just what this broken bleeding country needs. Another Con oil pimp like Brad Wall, the Premier of Saskatchewan.Sweeping out of the West to declare war on Central Canada. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Day of Reckoning

For years Stephen Harper was able to fool or brainwash many Canadians into believing that he was a Great Economist Leader.Even as he put all our eggs into one oily basket, demolished what was left of our manufacturing sector, brought in armies of foreign workers to drive down wages, failed to create enough jobs, and ran one deficit after the other.And he was hoping that helped by a billon dollars worth of porky ads paid for with OUR money, that phony reputation would win him another monstrous majority.But yesterday that dream ended, when the day of reckoning finally arrived.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Does Stephen Harper Have a Plan To Ruin Our Summer?

I've been trying to soak up every precious minute of summer I can. Trying to escape the city by heading out on the lake, to feel the wind in my face or the sun beating down on me.Or just lying in my hammock, with my cell phone turned off, reading a book, or watching the flowers bloom…

Not just because the summer took a long time to arrive, or because our Canadian summers are so tragically short.But because for weeks I've been hearing rumours that Stephen Harper has a monstrous plan to make this one even shorter.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Jesus Harper and the Corrupt Con Cult

When I first read the story about the Con MP who compared Stephen Harper to Jesus I must admit I was greatly amused.As were so many others.

I wondered whether Wai Young was a religious fanatic, and whether she really believed what she was saying.Or was just trying to please Jesus Harper.The deranged leader of the Con cult.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Could the Great Con War on Marijuana Be About To Backfire Badly?

I don't know if you've noticed, but Rona Ambrose has recently stepped up the Great Con War on Marijuana.By rerunning that old anti-marijuana ad, the one with dirty glass tubing representing the human brain on drugs.And sticking us with the bummer bill. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Con MP Compares Stephen Harper to Jesus Christ

Well I must admit that even though I am an atheist I never would have compared Stephen Harper to Jesus.Not with that face, not with those horns.And not for bringing in Bill C-51 or imposing tougher prison sentences.But that is what a Con MP has just done. Read more »
