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.

Inflation races higher in Canada — another new emergent threat to any economic recovery

Globe and Mail — They're reporting that Canada’s inflation rate jumps to 4.1%, fastest pace since 2003, sending shockwaves to almost nobody in the news media ahead of the stupid election. For example, the state-owned CBC "news media" division of the Trudeau Liberals reports it as their news item number seven or eight from the top. The G&M, as if explaining it to the CBC, wrote:
"The Statscan report arrives just five days before a federal election that’s seen affordability emerge as a key theme on the campaign trail, with all major parties pitching ideas to rein in a variety of costs, including for housing, child care and wireless plans..."
The cost of "wireless plans" is something like priority number 18,539 for me and 99% of the country, but Jagmeet Singh and the NDP — and therefore their loyal media at every opportunity — make out like it's more important than... I don't know.... inflation at 4% and Canada falling out of the economic freedom top ten... to say nothing of trillion-dollar debts and out-of-control budgets, and that thing about the end of our freedom of speech 'n junk like that. But ma wireless plan!!%#

Not “election news,” apparently: Canada drops out of top 10 countries in annual economic freedom report

Fraser Institute — In a sane land with actual journalism, this would be front-page news, one week ahead of an election. "In this year’s report, Canada ranks 14th based on 2019 data, the most recent comprehensive data, part of a downward trend since 2016. (Last year, Canada initially ranked 8th, although data revisions later lowered its rank to 13th.)"
“Due to higher taxes and increased regulation in Ottawa and the provinces, Canadians are less economically free, which means slower economic growth and less investment in Canada,” said Fred McMahon, Dr. Michael A. Walker Research Chair in Economic Freedom at the Fraser Institute.
Economic Freedom of the World: 2021 Annual Report is the world's premier measurement of economic freedom, ranking countries based on five areas—size of government [Canada: 111th], legal structure and property rights, access to sound money, freedom to trade internationally, regulation of credit, labour and business. In this year's report, which compares 165 countries and territories, Hong Kong is again number one—although China's heavy hand will likely lower Hong Kong's ranking in future years—and Canada (14th) trails the United States (6th).

Why isn’t this the biggest story in Canada?

National Review — "Why Isn’t the Attack on Larry Elder the Biggest Story in America?"  Their sub-head put it exactly right:
"A white woman in a gorilla mask threw an egg at a black man seeking to become the first non-white governor of our largest state, and the media shrug."
And they begin their story much as I have over the years: "Do a search for “Larry Elder” and gorilla on the CNN website and nothing comes up. Washington Post? Zilch. Nothing comes up on the New York Times site either..." — only replace those outfits with CBC, CTV, Global, Globe & Mail, etc.
In case you're stupid, let me fill you in: Larry Elder is a black man, but moreover, and in fact almost entirely over, he is a conservative man of considerable intellect and conscience. A Republican.
Indeed, in Canada, wherein they talk endlessly about evvvvvvery instance of "racism" in America in their activist effort to have it spill over into Canada and create divisions here to help fulfill their political ends, they utterly ignored this overt racism doozy. Why? Because they're hypocritical, dishonest, ideological, political... anything but journalists. They should all be ashamed of themselves. But I bet they aren't.
And yet they are so self-assured and arrogant that despite their obvious corruption, which they don't even care if you notice, they continue to demand and accept YOUR taxpayer handouts.

WE: The liberals’, the Liberals’, and Trudeau’s shame —documented in 4-part podcast

The Podcastosphere — I've listened to four parts of the well-done series titled "The White Saviors," narrated by Olusola Adeogun. There will be one more episode. The series documents the "cult" — yes, cult is the word used by an interviewee who worked for them — that is the liberals' own WE organization. I always thought of this WE group as cult-y, and corrupt, and as phony as a Liberal or NDP campaign promise, and as a leftist brainwashing center of bullshittery, but now, more so. Including, or especially because of, Justin Trudeau's participation in it. And the news media's love of it. And Big Public Education's embrace of it. And all of that combined.
The podcast is well described as "the exclusive story of a charity that did well when it was supposed to be doing good."
Produced by Canadaland, which has been on it for years, and arguably broke the story of WE and Liberal Party corruption in 2020.

Biden’s poll numbers are too embarrassing for the “news” media — I bring you the numbers because the others won't. The "news" media only bring you the news they want you to know, filtered through their very special way of telling it to you — because as you know, they're not really a "news media" at all. Therefore, Biden being increasingly underwater, as demonstrated by the scientific data that the news media studiously refuses to follow at, is ignored. They are lying through omission.

We won’t “get thru this together,” any more, boyfriend.

Globe and Mail — The Liberals' Globe and Mail division sounded off today on none other than their hero, liberalism's fancy-socked neo-liberal, The Right Woke Justin Trudeau. Seems the marriage is off.
"...We will never find comfort in the Liberal Leader’s corrupted line that we will “get through this together.” He doesn’t mean it. Only certain people matter to Mr. Trudeau – the ones he uses to prosecute identity politics for the singular purpose of furthering his destiny. ..."
The G&M, in a historic fashion reminiscent of the Maclean's revelation of two years ago, suddenly wakes up to discover that the Emperor wears no clothes; or at least those he does wear are just butt-ugly, overly showy, and of poor — possibly Fabrique en Chine —quality. He is, in fact, Right Woke, as I've been saying. And thus, the G&M finally seems to have woken up. Good morning.

Vacation in progress

I regret to inform you that even I have to take time off. Plus, my office is getting re-carpeted, and thus my office furniture and computer (whatever that is) is currently jammed into another room, much of it standing on its end, and inaccessible. I could do all my work on a laptop, like I'm doing now, but I'm not an animal. Summer's nearly over, and thus, so will be my vacationing.

The Article

As I often say, so much of the deep liberal-left philosophy and policy initiative and so on revolves around the orgasm

They will do and say and discuss a thing to death, notably in articles or discussions about sexually-transmitted diseases like AIDS and HPV, and even pregnancy, before they invoke the word “abstinence” (actually, in the case of pregnancy, all they talk about is abstinence, before the fact or after).  And if someone does bring the word up, they get positively hostile.  It’s absurd!  What—are you stupid?  Get realistic!  Abstinence!?  In this day and age!  What a retard!  Christian!  It’ll never work!   Actually, I guarantee, it will ALWAYS work.  That’s the inconvenient truth of life, liberals.

It’s not about moralizing, it’s about saving lives!  I agree (even though morals do tend to save lives, in case that’s what you’re on about). But let’s talk strictly scientifically:  the most scientifically assured way of stopping STDs is abstinence.  There you go.  Irrefutable scientific fact.  Have a nice day.

I agree that another fact of the matter is that so many girls will follow the well-taught “progressive” tact, have never heard the word “abstinence” before, and will have sex as they’ve basically been told to do in their secular progressive schools, complete with the condom on the cucumber classes and the free map to the abortion clinic.  And since I’m not about to advocate sacrificing people to prove a point, I do suggest talking about the other far less effective methods too, like drugs to cure disease and prevent them, and of course condoms so you can blame someone or something when it goes wrong.  But to not even mention the most scientifically effective method is hideously shoddy journalism and shoddy science, with more than an ounce of agenda, at the very best.

The ingenious scientists and journalists in the article in the National Post’s Financial Post section, “A cancer vaccine with political will” do what they always do, and only mention the only two methods they can get their heads around: drugs to prevent and cure STDs; and of course the condoms, which once again they insanely represent, scientifically, as “safe sex”, which is hysterically stupid, bad science, manifestly because it’s a pure lie.  Another inconvenient truth they never talk about.  Pattern developing! 

But you see at least you can still have sex this way, and that’s what it’s all about. Now you’re thinking like a liberal.

The article has to do with the scientists, drug companies (suddenly liberals are totally on-side with them),  doctors, and wild monkey sex advocates in Canada who want to vaccinate a whole generation of innocent little girls with a drug called Gardasil, so that from age eight or nine onward, the theory goes, they’ll be able to have sex (yay!  sex!) with less likelihood of spreading a sexually transmitted disease called HPV, and therefore they will be less likely to get cervical cancer from the HPV.

It’s either drugs to prevent or cure the disease, or condoms.  Those are the only options presented.  Whatever yields the ability to have sex—hopefully with multiple partners—even at the risk of life itself.  That’s sound science.  That’s “progressive”. 

In gently arguing against the drug option, the only other option available to the brains of liberals is presented as: ”…condoms and Pap tests are nearly 100% effective, not only against all cervical cancers but against all STDs.”

Here’s the actual science:  Condoms don’t prevent HPV.  No, not 100%, no, not even “nearly” 100%.  The disease is spread through the skin.  So, through oral sex, for example, which Bill Clinton informs us and the young ‘uns is not, in fact, sex. 

Great.  Now this is a problem worse than “man-made global warming” for liberals, because they’ll no sooner stop having sex and contracting STDs than stop driving SUVs, buying motor boats, and flying in jets.  No wonder drugs and condoms are the best they can come up with to combat HPV.

Therefore here’s a letter-to-the-editor from an actual “realistic” Canadian that I liked today.  It’s in the National Post:


Abstinence is the only guarantee against STDs

Re: A Cancer Vaccine With Political Will, Aug. 7.

Your article claims that condoms are “nearly 100% effective, not only against all cervical cancers but against all STDs.” That’s a joke. The U.S. National Institute of Health did the most extensive study ever on the effectiveness of condoms and the results showed there is no scientific evidence to prove that condoms can protect men from six of the eight STDs, nor women from seven of the eight.

Also, the most common STD (which also causes 99% of cervical cancer) is the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is spread by skin contact. One doesn’t need to have intercourse to contract it—oral sex is enough.

“Safe sex” doesn’t exist in a promiscuous society, but woe to me if I talk about abstinence. It seems people can’t handle such a simple solution to such a major health problem.

I like Michael Coren’s line on this, in a column he wrote last year in the Toronto Sun about AIDS (during the AIDS conference in Canada at which talk of abstinence was apparently taboo), but which could apply here as well: 

”…The irony is that AIDS is one of the few diseases where personal behavior rather than medical research could save millions of lives.

At its most simple, stop fornicating.”

Nah.  That ain’t liberal.
