The Prager Conservative Concerto: Dennis Prager’s melodic steps to understanding left-wing, right-hating media

Dennis Prager, Conservative columnist, radio show host, and PragerU, um, Headmaster? Principle? -- I'm trying to find a non-triggering word here since even "founder" might trigger something à la the Founding Fathers) -- also...

Unbalanced columnist lists Fox News as “far right,” the others as “balanced”

If I understand the Left (and the "far-left!") correctly, anyone to the right of Maxine Waters is not merely "conservative," "traditional," "conventional," or heaven forbid a "moderate," no no no. You're a fascist, and...

Liberal professor – on the left’s (beloved) violent anti-American thugs

This woke me up better than my coffee this morning. A good hit of truth, well-timed, does that to me. From an article which appeared at The Daily Caller, August 22, 2017, written by Nick...

News media updates their fake news story on Trump-related immigration to Canada

This story gave me a smile this morning. The Supreme Court slaps the lower (liberal) courts and reinstates President Trump's travel ban. Related news: The liberals' mainstream media division's past reporting (sorry "reporting" -- so...

Peter Kent on Trudeau’s weird Chinacommielove

I'm not the state-owned CBC or CTV. I don't act like a stenographer for (in my case) CPC talking points, the way "reporters" for the CBC and several citizen-owned media outlets do for their...

Spot the bullCBC story at Yahoo Finance Canada

You'd be forgiven for thinking it was was the extreme leftist state-owned CBC web site. But no. It's Yahoo. This kind of bullCBC does happen occasionally at regular free-market sites. I mean normal ones who...

News of his election booted to page 30; now media asks, “Who is this...

When the Conservatives elected Andrew Scheer as its new leader last weekend, the Vancouver Sun shoved the story onto page 13 -- so insignificant they thought -- or wanted you to think -- that...

The Media vs Conservatives: Conservative Party Leadership Finale = Page 30

The big Conservative Party leadership contest ended on Saturday with Andrew Scheer winning. Where did Vancouver's The Province (a Postmedia paper - same owner as National Post, etc.) put the story on Sunday? Page 30. Yeah...

Other. Neither. Both. None. All of the above.

Hey boys and girls! I've done this before but it hasn't ceased to amaze me yet. Which I think is a good thing. First question in a survey I did this week:

Conservative Party leadership ballot — and how I’m ranking my vote

How did I decide how to mark my Conservative Party leadership ballot? Virtually all the candidates spout the same lines on personal and corporate taxes (lowering them), and some other key issues. So I judged based...

Foreign aid is not aid, it’s a rip-off

I've made clear the position of this website on the candidates for leader of the Conservative Party (Maxime Bernier). So I'll go ahead and share another reason why: it comes from this latest emailout...

Alt-right email. Alt-answered.

Mail delivered to me in a fashion at odds with the quaint traditional postal mail methods of yore. And then answered in a similar alternate fashion. Hi Joseph, I think what the "alt-right" folks intended to...
