Lefty Mayor caught maskless but it’s ok: “I was feelin’ the spirit!”

National Review — Another article you won't read in 99% of the "news" media because, oh do I even have to say it?... she's a lefty mayor! (and we can well imagine the "news" media's faux outrage if she was a he and he was a Republican):

The mayor of San Francisco [London Breed] says that she shouldn’t be criticized for breaking her own COVID rules, because, and I quote, “I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.” CBS reports:

“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing,” said Breed during an interview to address the controversy.

The city’s health order states attendees at live indoor performances must remain masked except when actively eating or drinking. Breed maintained that she was drinking at the time.

“My drink was sitting at the table,” said Breed. “I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.”
As Charles C.W. Cooke points out, the hideousness doesn't stop just at her hypocrisy, her failure to take responsibility for her own actions, or her elitist rule-breaking, it's the fact that she laments the notion of "the fun police," when, in fact, as mayor and as the perpetrator of these asinine rules, she IS "the fun police."

Best post-election headline so far

Wall Street Journal — They get the headline just about right: Their opener:

The late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher counseled that in politics “standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous. You get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.” That’s the lesson delivered to Canada’s Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole in Monday’s national election.

I like that they added this because Canadian "news" media are loathed to mention it:

Yet while they again won the popular vote, they finished a distant second in seat count with about 119, two seats down from 2019. (By the way, the Tories have won the popular vote in five of the last six elections, which is a lesson for Americans who think this only happens because of the Electoral College.)

They see what I see. O'Toole: Speaking in pale pastels — largely pink — instead of bold colors. Lesson #596 for the Conservative Party of Canada. They'll learn someday. Maybe.

BC’s NDP gov and their “news” media divisions hiding stats and facts? Here’s one.

health-infobase.canada.ca For all the noise from the Canadian national "news" media, you'd think Ontario was the only province in the country, and that it's doing terribly with regard to the Wuhan Virus (which everybody still calls "COVID" on orders from the Communist Party of China). That's not news to anyone outside of Ontario. What might be news to people both outside and inside of Ontario is that BC's rate of death is nearly twice that of Ontario.
Don't worry lefties, even people in BC don't know that, because the "news" media in BC are actually cheerleaders for the NDP government of BC — much as the national news media is actually a division of the federal Liberal Party (well and the Ontario Liberal Party of course). Ontario is led by a party with the word "Conservative" in it, even though "Progressive" is the first and foremost word and concept in their party name and style of governance. But, you know, it's just deathn shit. Politics is way more important to the "news" media.
Facts. Get 'em anywhere you can, because you can't reliably get them from the "news" media.

Canada Excluded From International China Security Pact

Globe and Mail Dismissed by Justin Trudeau as merely a crass American salesman's move to pawn off the latest high-tech US-built nuclear subs to what we have to therefore assume he thinks are the total idiot Aussies, the three-nation deal didn't even include Canada in the talks leading up to the historic pact. And after Trudeau's comments on the matter (and the aforementioned attitude toward the Aussies), you can understand why.
"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday played down Canada’s exclusion from the Indo-Pacific security deal, saying it is merely a way for the U.S. to sell nuclear submarines to Australia ... “This is a deal for nuclear submarines, which Canada is not currently or any time soon in the market for. Australia is.”"
In a clear indication that even Trudeau's political bro Joe Biden doesn't actually take him or Canada seriously anymore (forcing one to wonder if his high-fivin' bro Barack Obama doesn't also come off as a bit two-faced after Obama gave Trudeau a campaign "endorsement" this week), even Canadian officials were left in the dark. Almost like Canada can't even be trusted anymore on any level.

"Three officials, representing Canada’s foreign affairs, intelligence and defence departments, told The Globe and Mail that Ottawa was not consulted about the pact, and had no idea the trilateral security announcement was coming until it was made on Wednesday by U.S. President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison."

Trudeau, in contrast, delayed Canada's Wuhan Virus immunization program by signing a deal not with the Americans or Brits, but with... CHINA, for vaccines, in what turned out to be a total failure with countless Canadian lives lost as a result. What is going on here?

And the science SAYSSS…

National Post —Move over Donald Trump. In their NP Platformed email available to subscribers, columnist Sabrina Maddeaux calmly explains that Justin Trudeau's recent uncontrolled angry outbursts — one at a citizen who was rude, and one at a reporter who dared challenge him with actual reporter-like questions — provides a clue as to his baser instincts. And if you saw these outbursts, you'd agree, it isn't a good look for him or any normal human. But moreover, it's a terrible look for anyone claiming the title of Prime Minister. But it's this new line of anti-science, pure crass political campaign bullshit that has me riled:
"...At a weekend rally in Oakville, Ont., Trudeau revealed his hand when he claimed that, “If you want this pandemic to end, go out and vote Liberal.” He repeated the message again, even turning it up a notch, in Surrey, B.C., on Monday, saying, “If you want this pandemic to end for good, go out and vote Liberal!”
"This is the ultimate false promise by a politician who’s become infamous for making false promises. No one can guarantee he will be able to end the pandemic. In fact, the expert consensus seems to be that there will be no real end to it: the virus will become endemic and we will be forced to live with it, albeit hopefully more normally. ..."
So it's "follow the science," and "the science says... to vote Liberal”? Many, especially the media, would dismiss "bible belt" politicians who insinuated that "God wants you to vote [whatever way].  This blowhard — and his disciples — should be treated no differently.

No, I’m not creating a conspiracy theory on the fly. And no, I’m not accusing anybody of anything nefarious. What I am doing right now is pointing out an oddity: the lead Globe and Mail editorial board editorial this morning is, as I mentioned in an update to yesterday‘s post, about the Liberals’ shambolic bill C-10, which even the Liberals’ Globe and Mail division agrees (with me and every other sensible person), threatens our freedom-of-speech, and by (my) extension, our democracy.

In their own words: “Canadians are right to worry about it.”

That’s remarkable. I mean the G&M and Liberals spend all their time in bed together, doing who-knows-what to each other (let’s not even go there and no, I’m not even going to offer the numerous hilarious puns and double entendres that you know I could, here), and yet here they are — the Globe and Mail — wagging their naked finger at their bedmates, their beloved but apparently naked except for neat socks Trudeau Liberal cabal (it’s group sex), and both Heritage Minister Guilbeault and the emperor Trudeau himself having been publicly exposed by them as wearing no clothes (besides said sox).  And indeed Trudeau is the emperor who wears no clothes. Think about baseball or the CBC to get all those images out of your mind.

But anyway.

I also noticed the Globe and Mail did another strange thing in their writing today. While trying to expose Trudeau’s Minister of Heritage Guilbeault (a truly naked ass) as a total bullshitter (my word, not theirs — they said his are “arguments that don’t add up”), they point to a video clip of a state-owned CBC Power And Politics show, in which the aforementioned naked ass appears as a rambling, stuttering, lying, obfuscating, idiot — as he’s being interviewed by a shockingly incredulous CBC anchor. Yes, a usually reliably obsequious CBC anchor.

That in itself is amazing. I mean it’s amazing that the G&M would deign to do that to their sex partners, but also, watch that video! If you still vote Liberal after watching that, you may drug treatment. Or you need to stop watching liberalvision CTV. Or you need help being removed from a cult. Or you may be in need of sex counseling.

Moreover, it’s the link itself. Here’s a screenshot showing the link:

The link is: https://odysee.com/@ThoughtfulChrysalis:0/steven-guilbeault-of-the-liberal-party:7

Anything odd about that? Yes!

Odysee.com isn’t a sex site, no. But it is a rather, dare I say “subversive” (?) — or at least an unconventional video repository. The free speech haters who just love Twitter’s and YouTube’s censorship and demonetization of conservatives, COVID lockdown-skeptics, government skeptics, people who refuse to announce their pronouns and refuse to genuflect to the “I’m a racist too!” cult, and other heterodox thinkers) try their hardest to cancel Odysee as a bastion of the “alt-right,” “far-right,” and the other usual buzzwords of cancel culture devotees. Odysee does have a more congenial set of content rules than the YouTubes of the world, and strives to be a place which is freer from government and corporate control, much as Parler tried. Leftists are, as we know, dead set against that. They MUST control the conversation.

Videos uploaded to the Odysee site, though, can’t be removed or “deplatformed” or demonetized, at least in the conventional sense, because the site uses a new technological protocol called LBRY, undergirded by blockchain technology. They write about it thus:

…LBRY aims to be an alternative to these sites [YouTube, Instagram, etc], allowing publishers and their fans to interact directly without the risk of demonetization or other meddling.

What makes this all possible is the blockchain technology developed by the creator of Bitcoin. …

… We think users should own their content (and their privacy) instead of handing it over to a corporate giant and their advertising buddies. If you think we’re paranoid, there are dozens of examples of companies abusing users and acting against their interests. It’s not paranoia if they’re actually out to get you. …

… For the same reasons that nobody can prevent a Bitcoin transaction from taking place, nobody can prevent a transaction (like a publication…) from appearing on the LBRY blockchain. …

See what I mean now? See how it seems odd that Globe and Mail editors would link to a state-owned CBC video on that site, rather than, say, a clip on YouTube, or their beloved CBC site itself (here’s the CBC link to the video!), or, since they are rather familiar with their other bedmates, the CBC, a video of their own damn making?

In case you’re not connecting the dots, content on Odysee.com can’t be as easily regulated and controlled and censored by the government authorities in they way that the Trudeau and Guilbeault Liberals, and the Chinese Communist Party, and North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un, all seek to do.

One could rightly suggest that it is possible the G&M is concerned about the CBC, perhaps with the help of YouTube, and perhaps with instruction from Liberal Party HQ or the PMO’s Katie Telford, which wouldn’t be shocking at this point, arranging the tossing of that clip down the memory hole, and pretending it never happened. I mean that’s how revealing that clip is of their perfidy.

By linking to it on the blockchain, whence videos cannot easily be erased, banned, or censored without shutting down the internet in Canada (that couldn’t happen here under this government!), it shall remain there forever.

Have they lost their trust in their partners? With bill C-10, it would be no surprise if they have. At the very least, this exemplifies some sort of a snub to Trudeau and his CBC division. Or some sort of we’ll show you who’s boss, you idiots.

One more curious thing: who is it who uploaded that state-owned, copyrighted CBC video to Odysee? Let’s look! (Click for larger image):

The uploader was a fellow (or gal? Or “non-binary” “humankind” “personage.” Pronouns not indicated) named “@punditclass.” Zero followers. Created 14 days ago. Just that one CBC video upload. A political pundit, one could reason. A pundit from the Globe and Mail? One could speculate. Is the Globe and Mail hedging their bets about the future of Canada and the future of freedom therein, in light of C-10? Who knows.

And will they kick those asses out of their bed now?
