Canada’s liberals are, in fact, dumb bombs

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

RealClearPolitics.com — 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 RealClearPolitics.com, 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 – a Quicktake

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

Proving that Canada is far from serious about this war on terror and its own defence and national security, Canada still doesn’t have already years-old, latest generation laser-guided “smart-bomb” technology for its now already aging CF-18 fighter jets, which would enable them to fire ammunition at enemies with pinpoint accuracy and deadly force—something even third-world Iran boasts it can do.  Liberals are in favor of that. 

Why are they in favor of that?  Well for one thing, it’s their fault.  They did this.  But also, as a result of their perfidy, Canada can’t send its fleet of CF-18s to aid our relatively huge effort in Afghanistan—a mission which the liberal-left in Canada hates—to help protect our Canadian troops’ lives and advance our noble mission’s goals there, without that technology.  Readers know I’ve been demanding they do just that since the Liberals begrudgingly started the mission in 2001 following the latest declaration of war against us by Islamist terrorists, on September 11, 2001—and it’s a decision they apparently weren’t any more serious about than their sacred Kyoto Accord with its hilarious targets they had no plan to nor intention of meeting. 

Liberals, who were busy improperly deploying all of the nations’ resources and attention enacting emergency gay “marriage” legislation and redefining the definition of “family” and “marriage” at any cost whatsoever, even while Islamist terrorism was festering in front of their faces and a real war was going on, are still unaware or unwilling to admit or unwilling to come to grips with the fact that Islamist terrorists turned several passenger aircraft into “smart bombs” on that memorable day in 2001.  Note that the terrorists employed this “smart bomb” technology without any squabbling over contracts.

 

  Canadian Forces CF-18 fighter jet—painted in the fabulous “Proud To Be Canadian” motif … but lacking the latest “smart bomb” technology.

The Liberal government failed to ensure that our fighter jet fleet—aging as it was—was up to date with modern-day war technology, thus failed to do their custodial and constitutional and moral minimum duty which is to ensure our nation’s safety and security.  They failed to act despite their more than decade of failed leadership of this largely undefended country.  After their merciful defeat in 2006, and now that the Conservative government finally let out the overdue contracts last March to Lockheed Martin—one of three bidders—soon after winning the election last year, Canada’s liberals now want to stop the processRight in the middle of a war.  And they are doing it for nothing but political purposes, even at the expense of our Afghanistan mission, and the risk to our troops and our national security.  And they’re using one of their own tools to do it—yet another Liberal Party-stacked “tribunal”. 

The latest political football and lose-the-war tactic for them is no less than a Canadian International Trade Tribunal ruling from the liberals’ sacred Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Chairman of the organization and all members were appointed by Liberals).  And this, even at the expense of our Canadian troops’ lives and our national security.

This proves in yet another way that far from being serious about winning the war, they actually want to lose it.  They can’t legislate defeat by officially surrendering like the pantywaist-wearing Islamist appeasers that they are, because they’re not in power and the treason would simply be too obvious even for the liberals’ media to digest.  They obliquely demand we do surrender, nonetheless.  So liberals are attempting to achieve the same result using every other method they can think of —this one being right up their ally:  big-government political and bureaucratic constipation and a good verbal oozing of liberal-leftist brain poo to forestall the deployment of our military equipment to the field—in this case using a bureaucratic institution they stacked with their own appointees.

Their Trade Tribunal—not to be confused with their various “Human Rights” tribunals and such—has put a stop to the process of updating our jets because of a complaint by contract winner Lockheed Martin’s competitors. This is a liberal-left dream come true, and a result which I’m sure even the corporations who launched a complaint couldn’t have desired, since they’re not in the business of losing wars, like the liberals are, but rather winning them.  Once again, their bureaucracy and all those appointments made over the years comes through for them.

Canada’s liberal-left politicians and voters have of course already determined and pronounced that Canada’s troops are not doing anything worthwhile in Afghanistan—worse, they’re actually causing harm there.  So by logical extension they would hardly have an interest in protecting them (quite the opposite, I suspect, but for the media optics of it).  Also, they have apparently determined—perhaps through “U.N. computer modeling”—that Canada will be in absolutely no danger from terrorists or any other threat whatsoever, at least not until this stupid bureaucratic matter is vetted by them—in the media of course—and settled to their political satisfaction.  Further, the science is apparently settled on there being no risk of skirmishes anywhere in the terror and Islamist-threatened world, like in, say, Sudan, or in the Congo, or in, I don’t know, Canada, in which Canada could play a pivotal pro-active humanitarian military role. 

No, life-and-death wars can’t be fought until the Liberal joker Denis Coderre is finished his little comedy stage act and his blathering on and on before the fawning media, calling Prime Minister Harper “President Harper” to much repeated giggling amongst news anchors on the national media.  And not until liberals across Canada have finished finding ways of demeaning and talking-down Canada and its mission. 

And no, not until liberals in and out of their media division get some juicy political mileage and headlines out every possible thing—war deaths and political stumbles along the way (even those which were caused directly by Liberal governments and their own failings and inadequate arrangements and purposeful unavailability of even minimal modern equipment). 

But don’t worry, they “support the troops”.

The smart-bombs-updating contract, however suspect or poorly awarded it was or wasn’t, should obviously be completed non-stop and ASAP, even as the stupid legal debate continues—which it likely will for years and years.  But that’s too sensible and serious a notion for liberals to consider.  For example, doing that would help us advance in the war in Afghanistan. 

For them, it’s better that we put our troops and our mission at risk while they continue to attempt to garner cheap political points and media stories and attention and Denis Coderre prattles off a few more jokes, which their liberal media collectively giggle at.  They are all dumb bombs.

The only real news here is that the Liberals failed our nation and purposely—some might say treasonously—neglected our military to the point of near rust-out.  And the real emergencies in this country—like the war on terror; national defence and national security and generally fighting wars to protect —rather then risk and ruin and re-fashion or re-define our families and attempt to re-write our nation’s core values to their trendy “progressive” flavor of the month—are all too real for liberals. 

 

Thanks to Ron and others for educating me on munitions and correcting some of my wording.
