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

imageReport from on the ground in Afghanistan just now:

”…forces are seeing more suicide bombs now.  Some say that’s desperation on the part of the Taliban because, not only is the BOMBER killed, but also, often civilians are caught between the bomber and its target! …” 

—Susan Ormiston, CBC News.

Golly.  I hear on Fox News Channel that sometimes, “some say”, civilians are the target!  No, not the target of American or Canadian forces (who routinely target civilians if I understand “some” liberals correctly), but civilians are the target of the Taliban!  No seriously!  This is why some Fox News Channel folks accurately call them homicide bombers (with nary a need for explanation to its viewers). 

Here’s another wonderfully astute observation which the pedagogical CBC reporter could possibly consider making to Canadians after vacuously explaining that ”…forces are seeing more suicide bombs now!” :  The savage Taliban and other related terrorist groups and all of their divisions are (a) working as a cohesive group in order to win a war; and (b) are far more sophisticated and media savvy than the CBC or any western media (with the possible exception of Fox News Channel and the Washington Times). 

I do realize this could be a rather embarrassing admission for the CBC reporter to make. And it won’t help them to win over the troops back home (by which I mean their “progressive” far-left viewers who all want to immediately quit the war and surrender to the Taliban, and then win power over Canada).

image While you’re at it, it would also benefit Canadians to understand that some of our country’s liberal mainstream media are not actually “on our side” per se, the way the Taliban are all “on side”—i.e., on the same team.  The CBC seems to like to fashion itself as “neutral”—not particularly “on our side”.  So that’s difficult to explain as well.  No, sorry, it’s impossible.  But important.  They should actually have a banner under their reports reading “NOTE: WE’RE NOT NECESSARILY ON CANADA’S SIDE”. Or use the hilariously redundant banner they used earlier this week, as seen at right.

But it would only take 20 seconds to more fully inform Canadians.  (Cut into some of your “Harper is an unfriendly dictator time!).  It could go something like this:


…forces are seeing more suicide bombs now.  Terrorists often appear to increase their murderous terrorist bombings just when they think it’s particularly beneficial to their public relations and war-winning interests.  Like when the liberal-left and its media in Canada are on a renewed and vigorous campaign to make clear that we Canadians are all rather indecisive about the very mission itself, with some of us actually demanding we immediately quit the fight because we will never win.  This, on the basis that our enemy is too strong for us—and perhaps even more right than we are in their cause. 

The result of this anti-war tour de force in and from Canada is that our troops are put in harm’s way, and troops and civilians are at risk of death.  But at least the liberal-left is making their point. 

Yes Canadians, some of us are actually on the Taliban’s side, or are at least “neutral”, as we at the CBC strain to appear, instead of being on, you know, Canada’s side.  That way, and only that way, we can test to see whether we’re war criminals, as George Bush is seen to be by unnamed sources, or simply defending our national security and other interests abroad, as the neo-cons say without blushing.  We’re not sure up to now.  The Taliban might be the good guys.  We’re just. Not. Sure. 

Our —I mean the — liberal-left in Canada exemplify this position all day long by, for example, casting doubt and aspersions about the Afghanistan mission, and we —sorry they —purposefully raise doubts about the mission among the citizenry back home, and try to bring into renewed doubt the very worthiness of the mission, and try to convince Canadians that it’s all a waste of time and that we can’t win so let’s give up

image And we here at the CBC dutifully report every word they utter.  Without questioning them.  For “balance” purposes.  Well, we do question the Conservatives, but you know, they’re neo-cons and, some reports suggest, “war mongers”.

And then of course as a result of all the doubt that has been implanted in the hearts and minds of Canadians, the government in Canada actually has to have constant parliamentary “debates” and “committee” hearings, and then have a cute little carefully staged votes in the House about whether or not it’s all worthwhile (because it’s just that unclear, eh!). 

And while the political opposition parties figure out their best politically expedient strategy (all based on their best win the next election “principles”, they prove to the terrorists—sorry, I mean the “misunderstood insurgents”—that the vote to extend the mission actually had a credible chance of failing, after which even our own troops wouldn’t know if they’ve been fighting and dying for shit [CBC could substitute “nothing”], or for what, exactly. 

And when even after the vote passes, asses [CBC could substitute “arses”] like far-leftist pantywaist party leader Jack Layton and other liberal-leftists continue to demand we surrender because, well, it’s just not worth fighting for freedom and democracy and national security and our national interests.

Conversely, Canadians, as we know, all of that jibba jabba about a willingness to stay “for 100 years” supported by the likes of Republican presidential candidates John McCain, whose incredibly right-thinking [CBC could substitute “sober”] words are actually now being used against him by liberal Democrat surrender monkeys [CBC could substitute with “incredibly short-sighted and dangerous liberals”] who are just itching to surrender in Iraq in order to prove that Republicans failed, might actually have the effect of helping to discourage terrorists.  And that would suck, politically, according to some sources. 

And it doesn’t help them—Canada—that in any case, the current debate is also about end-date idiocy, rather than a clear demonstration of our willingness to fight until we win, and to never surrender, ever.

It would be a fairly long report.  But today, for example, they’ve spent about an hour, so far, talking about the cool movies to see this weekend, on CBC Newsworld.

I don’t know what side the media is on.  Personally, I’m on our side.  So I’d go ahead and make that report. It would serve the nation well. In juxtaposition to how the CBC is currently serving the nation.
