Yahoo News — Dutch Foreign Minister Sigrid Kaag resigned on Thursday after parliament formally condemned her handling of the Afghanistan evacuation crisis.
Too bad Canada doesn't have a Parliament. Or a 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.

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.

Read a well-reasoned explanation of Biden's declining poll numbers by Rich Lowry, at Politico, but not at any of the "news media" outlets that couldn't stop reporting on Trump's declining poll numbers.

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.

Yesterday, CTV “News” embarrassed themselves by touting a CNN “fact-check” (CNN doing any manner of “fact-check” is hideous in and of itself). Their “fact-check” was on the Republican Nation Convention, which, beyond hideous, is journalistic malpractice. Actually, they “fact-checked” Melania Trump’s lovely speech, making it all the more ridiculous:

CNN is arguably the most dishonest “news” outfit outside of China or North Korea. And I’ve watched and read Canadian news! But nobody can legitimately argue — no honest person does — that CNN is not absolutely, utterly partisan (virulently anti-Trump/Republicans/etc., as if I had to tell you), nor that they literally cheerlead for the Dems all day long. Let me put it this way: only ardent — and dishonest — liberals would argue that point, but no conservative would argue that point. Conservatives would laugh. As weird as it sounds, that helps prove the point. I’d no sooner ascribe credibility to a CNN fact-check than I would one from China or North Korea state media. I’d trust Canada’s state-owned CBC before I trusted CNN, and that’s saying a lot, In fact, I’m throwing up right now.

The day before yesterday, CTV first relied on CNN to bash the first night of the RNC. But they added context you guys! They compared it to the glorious (and super-honest!) Democratic event the week before. A broad sweeping LIE! was all they could muster after a night of really good, inspiring, mostly uplifting pro-America speeches (including lots from black Americans who are Republicans, including many women, and this drives liberals mad with rage). Look at this balanced headline:

“First night of Republican convention features more dishonesty than all of DNC: CNN fact check”

Check out its first line — and remember, this is “reporting!” — which CTV published to their site as “news”:

“The Republican National Convention started off with a parade of dishonesty, in stark contrast with last week’s Democratic convention.”

It then goes off for thousands of words, detailing — disputing, actually — every word that was said at the convention, no matter how banal.

Night three: MORE LIES! “Egregious” ones!

In order of their actual headlines by the day — all duly highlighted with a giant red bolded “FACT CHECK” banner (courtesy of the super-honest CNN!), as you can see in the actual screengrab below:

  1. “First night of RNC features more dishonesty than all of DNC”
  2. “Second night of RNC riddled with dishonesty”
  3. “Egregious false claims and careless inaccuracies mar night 3 of the RNC”

It turns out CTV has a whole section of their “news” website in which they rip into Trump, VP Mike Pence, Melania, and any other Republican they can slam, all under the rubric of “AMERICA VOTES.” Must as those phony “get out the vote” pushes are really “Vote, but just for Democrats/Lefties,” “AMERICA VOTES” really means “Vote, but don’t vote Republican.”

Here’s CTV Washington “reporter” — not a professional partisan political activist or Democratic Party/Liberal Party operative (that I know of) — Joy Malbon, imploring people to vote, in light of a video she attached — a video which was used by the Dems during the DNC as one of their PR or advertising props. The video warns that Trump wants to prevent people from voting, because Trump knows, see, that if you do vote, see, Trump will lose. Malbon’s comment? “VOTE” — in all caps.


“Reporting for CTV National News from Washington, Ottawa, London, Toronto and then some.” That’s CTV “reporter” Joy Malbon’s Twitter bio.

The CTV’s other Washington activist — excuse me, “DC-based correspondent” — is Richard Madan, and he’s no better. His Twitter rap sheet is just as anti-Trump as Joe Biden’s. He literally appears to be working for Biden. Here’s one example from among way too many to cause any confusion as to his bias, and, in the end, get-out-to-vote-correctly activism:

So if I understand correctly, and I do, “reporting” means being a partisan activist and anti-Trump, pro-liberal/Democratic cheerleader, and not a reporter at all.

Here’s “reporter” Malbon retweeting another DNC ad —sorry, “reporting” on a DNC ad— which is a compilation of Republican leadership campaign candidates hitting against Trump in the heat of their leadership battle in 2016 which she needed to report on now because reasons.

Super objective and contextual and apropos of everything you guys. Here is the last frame in the cute li’l video she tweeted out for your newsy information:

It’s literally a Biden/Harris campaign ad. Which Joy Malbon tweeted out. As a reporter. Bear in mind there are no Trump ads she could “report” on, except for 8,000 of them.

I can find no tweets or evidence of any honest “fact-checking” or attacks of the DNC at the CTV’s specious “AMERICA VOTES” section of their “news” site. Just anti-Republican. Here’s an actual headline not on that page, but which I found after running a search at CTV: “CNN fact checks the first two nights of the Democratic convention.” First line (hold your laughter!): “To be frank, there hasn’t been a whole lot to fact check from the Democratic National Convention so far. We’ve been watching closely.”

I kid you not.

I believe this is an objective truth: CNN, along with most of the other American “news” outfits, are the literal mouthpieces of the Dems and libs. CTV knows that. So why they would use CNN to “fact-check” the Republican National Convention is easy to answer. Neither CNN nor CTV are “news” organizations, as we can see from their content and from their “reporters.” They’re not doing the news right at all. In fact they can’t even be called “news” anymore. They’re doing political activism very well. Which makes it all entirely dishonest. “Egregiously” so.

And yet here they are reporting — as fact — on some perceived dishonesty.

Their own egregious dishonesty aside, it’s insulting and really rather amazing that they think you’re so stupid.
