Lefty Mayor caught maskless but it’s ok: “I was feelin’ the spirit!”

National Review — Another article you won't read in 99% of the "news" media because, oh do I even have to say it?... she's a lefty mayor! (and we can well imagine the "news" media's faux outrage if she was a he and he was a Republican):

The mayor of San Francisco [London Breed] says that she shouldn’t be criticized for breaking her own COVID rules, because, and I quote, “I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.” CBS reports:

“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing,” said Breed during an interview to address the controversy.

The city’s health order states attendees at live indoor performances must remain masked except when actively eating or drinking. Breed maintained that she was drinking at the time.

“My drink was sitting at the table,” said Breed. “I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.”
As Charles C.W. Cooke points out, the hideousness doesn't stop just at her hypocrisy, her failure to take responsibility for her own actions, or her elitist rule-breaking, it's the fact that she laments the notion of "the fun police," when, in fact, as mayor and as the perpetrator of these asinine rules, she IS "the fun police."

Best post-election headline so far

Wall Street Journal — They get the headline just about right: Their opener:

The late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher counseled that in politics “standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous. You get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.” That’s the lesson delivered to Canada’s Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole in Monday’s national election.

I like that they added this because Canadian "news" media are loathed to mention it:

Yet while they again won the popular vote, they finished a distant second in seat count with about 119, two seats down from 2019. (By the way, the Tories have won the popular vote in five of the last six elections, which is a lesson for Americans who think this only happens because of the Electoral College.)

They see what I see. O'Toole: Speaking in pale pastels — largely pink — instead of bold colors. Lesson #596 for the Conservative Party of Canada. They'll learn someday. Maybe.

BC’s NDP gov and their “news” media divisions hiding stats and facts? Here’s one.

health-infobase.canada.ca For all the noise from the Canadian national "news" media, you'd think Ontario was the only province in the country, and that it's doing terribly with regard to the Wuhan Virus (which everybody still calls "COVID" on orders from the Communist Party of China). That's not news to anyone outside of Ontario. What might be news to people both outside and inside of Ontario is that BC's rate of death is nearly twice that of Ontario.
Don't worry lefties, even people in BC don't know that, because the "news" media in BC are actually cheerleaders for the NDP government of BC — much as the national news media is actually a division of the federal Liberal Party (well and the Ontario Liberal Party of course). Ontario is led by a party with the word "Conservative" in it, even though "Progressive" is the first and foremost word and concept in their party name and style of governance. But, you know, it's just deathn shit. Politics is way more important to the "news" media.
Facts. Get 'em anywhere you can, because you can't reliably get them from the "news" media.

Canada Excluded From International China Security Pact

Globe and Mail Dismissed by Justin Trudeau as merely a crass American salesman's move to pawn off the latest high-tech US-built nuclear subs to what we have to therefore assume he thinks are the total idiot Aussies, the three-nation deal didn't even include Canada in the talks leading up to the historic pact. And after Trudeau's comments on the matter (and the aforementioned attitude toward the Aussies), you can understand why.
"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday played down Canada’s exclusion from the Indo-Pacific security deal, saying it is merely a way for the U.S. to sell nuclear submarines to Australia ... “This is a deal for nuclear submarines, which Canada is not currently or any time soon in the market for. Australia is.”"
In a clear indication that even Trudeau's political bro Joe Biden doesn't actually take him or Canada seriously anymore (forcing one to wonder if his high-fivin' bro Barack Obama doesn't also come off as a bit two-faced after Obama gave Trudeau a campaign "endorsement" this week), even Canadian officials were left in the dark. Almost like Canada can't even be trusted anymore on any level.

"Three officials, representing Canada’s foreign affairs, intelligence and defence departments, told The Globe and Mail that Ottawa was not consulted about the pact, and had no idea the trilateral security announcement was coming until it was made on Wednesday by U.S. President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison."

Trudeau, in contrast, delayed Canada's Wuhan Virus immunization program by signing a deal not with the Americans or Brits, but with... CHINA, for vaccines, in what turned out to be a total failure with countless Canadian lives lost as a result. What is going on here?

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.

The Article

Donald Trump lies!

It’s actually true. He did and does.

You know what else is true? Justin Trudeau and his cabinet lie. All the time. And so do his news media divisions. Two or more things can all be true at the same time.

Lies, lies, and more lies. I read about some today in a column by a former pharmaceutical CEO who dared speak truth to Canadian political power — in contradistinction to most news media in Canada — and call out just some of their lies. It’s a good read in the Financial Post from last week: “Opinion: Why we’re not doing better on COVID vaccinesLiberal government pharmaceutical policy has failed Canadians at our time of greatest need.” (Author: Paul Lucas, Jan 14, 2021.)

Here’s a lie. Lie #1 (with my highlighting):
“I felt compelled to write about the current vaccine supply situation when federal Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs Dominic Leblanc erroneously stated on CTV’s Power Play that we don’t have any domestic vaccine production in Canada because “GSK closed its facility during the Harper years.” In fact, that facility is still operational and manufactures much of Canada’s annual flu vaccine.”

(How does the news media anchors and staff on liberalvision CTV’s Power Play program not know that GSK factory is open and running today? Well, they do know that. They didn’t want the truth to get out, in order to protect their partisan politics and their political party. So they button their lips. That’s how.)

Lie #2:
“As of this writing Canada ranks tenth in the world in COVID vaccine doses administered per 100 population. This is surprising considering Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has consistently stated that “We are better on vaccines than just about every other country.”

(We’re not even 10th now but 19th in the world, today, according to today’s ranking at OurWordData.org. How could the news media not know that, and not question Trudeau on his outright lie? Well, the news media does know that, and they didn’t want the truth to get out, in order to protect their partisan politics and their political party. So they simply don’t question him, and don’t tell you. That’s how.)

Lie #3:
“The provinces have worked out their logistics issues and are not the problem. The problem is clearly that the federal government is not able to procure significant doses of vaccine until April.”

Trudeau and cabinet and in fact many in the media would like to blame, oh, God I don’t know — everybody including God. First they blamed the provinces, but I’ve also heard them blame Trump, the pharmaceutical companies, delivery companies, bad staffing everywhere except in Trudeau-related offices… have they blamed the Russians yet? Anyway, columnist Tasha Kheiriddin does a very good job of explaining where blame really lies in her article today, “Tasha Kheiriddin: The Liberals went hostile against Big Pharma. Now we’re facing vaccine shortages Europeans will wait just one week for their Pfizer shipments to return to normal levels, while Canadians will wait for four weeks. (January 19, 2021, National Post)

Kheiriddin includes this scathing paragraph, which explains so much:

“Why was the Liberal government so intent on copying this model? Two words: national pharmacare. Without lower prices, the Liberals’ promise to introduce pharmacare would cost far more than Ottawa could afford. And without a pharmacare promise in their platform, the Liberals may not have siphoned enough NDP votes to eke out their minority government in 2019 — or to stay in power since.”

Tasha is too nice to say it, but my reading of that is that the Trudeau Liberals, and the farther-left NDP, with their news media happily in tow, literally put all of their partisan politics — their yearning for power — their liberal-left ideology — ahead of Canada’s businesses, its economy, and moreover, Canadians’ very lives. And Canadians have, and will, now die because of it.

But Trump lied!  Yeah. Maybe shut up.

Lie 3½ is unmentioned directly by Mr. Lucas. It is the fact that the Liberals (and their news media which know all of this full well) are actually hiding this very important information about the liberals and Liberals’ punitive pricing regime through their Patented Medicine Price Review Board regulations (which Tasha explains very well). These regs started in, wait for it… January 2021, exactly when supplies started getting cut off, unlike in Europe or the U.S.  So, they’re all lying by omission. Not telling you the facts you need to form an informed opinion. Because… They didn’t want the truth to get out, in order to protect their partisan politics and their political party.

Lie #4:
It’s another lie by omission. And it’s a doozy. Back to Paul Lucas:

“Or, finally, is our initial supply small because Canada provided little to no funding for the development of the vaccines, unlike the contributions made by the U.S., U.K. and Germany? Operation Warp Speed in the U.S. contributed $12 billion to support accelerated development and manufacturing. It should be no surprise that the U.S. now has large quantities of vaccine.”

Why is nobody in the news media ever talking about this (pace Tasha Kheiriddin and few  others)? Partly it’s because Trump’s Operation Warp Speed was so successful, and you know, TRRUMPPP! So, hide the facts and protect, well, back to the old refrain: They didn’t want the truth to get out, in order to protect their partisan politics and their political party. We should set it to somber music.

***

The direct effect of this liberal-left political ideology and the associated power-play by those political parties and their media are utterly pathetic. Deadly. Ruinous. Awful.

Paul Lucas again: “When it comes to vaccine supply Canada should be in the same position as these other leading countries. Instead, we are three to four months behind. How many more people will die in this pandemic who wouldn’t have if the federal government had done a better job acquiring more early doses? How many more businesses will fail? How long will the lockdowns go on? Months matter in this struggle. Days matter. Unfortunately, Canadians are paying a steep price.”

Perhaps they should slap a carbon tax on it.
