UPDATED: Fully vaccinated Trudeau wears mask and elbow-bumps like a true idiot performer

If Justin Trudeau approached me with his mask on (especially when just five seconds ago he wasn't wearing one), and extended his elbow toward me instead of his hand to shake, I'd... ...be more likely...

Who’s proud of America? Those who *aren’t* in school. Ding ding. There’s a clue.

A poll in America on the occasion of Independence Day — the fourth of July — revealed that Americans are, in fact, proud of their country, despite what the media would have you believe (what with all the "systemic racism" and whatnots). I might rephrase that a bit: despite how the media would have it if only they could more fully convince Americans that America is bad.

Trudeau, eject your Senator Woo from our Canadian Senate

The Canadian Senate — your Canadian Senate — has the power to throw out a senator from the appointed chamber, as long as a majority of Senators approve of the expulsion. And a majority...

SPONSORSHIP II?: a new Liberal Party corruption scandal exposed by Fife & Chase

The Liberals' Globe and Mail division will be a nasty place to work at again today. The dynamic duo, Robert Fife, Ottawa Bureau Cheif, and Steven Chase, Senior Parliamentary Reporter — who often make...

We canceled Penticton, because Penticton canceled Canada

We finally, after sweating it out for a good long time online, managed to book a bed & breakfast in Penticton in July. Everybody's rushing to book stuff now that America's Operation Warp Speed...

Science my butt

The Liberals' Globe and Mail division dutifully wrote up today's exciting news of the all-powerful Canadian government's easing of U.S. travel restrictions  — rules which, they leave out of their story-writing, have been imprisoning...

Changing your name is what it’s all about, when it’s “Liberal”

British Columbia, for those of you who don't know, has two main political parties: the left-wing labor-union-and-wokeness-obsessed NDP, and the not-quite-as-left-wing BC Liberals —no relation to the federal Liberals, the BC Liberals sometimes say,...

Today’s Top Story in Total BS News — Thursday June 10 2021

Given the chance to learn from history and think ahead, liberal MPs chose death.
