How to lose

BC Liberal Party website — They obviously put out a news release announcing their leadership debate, stating, as even their own website states, that you can stream it at their website. The Globe and Mail said so too, even. But go to their website, and nothing like an anticipatory video teaser is there. Like they're not even set up for it. Or don't care if you watch it. You can, they say, watch it on Facebook. But I won't support that crap. So heckofa job, Libbies.

Canadians love their cheap Chinese trinkets despite the moral question

Globe and Mail — Startling reports out of the Port of Vancouver indicate just how much Canadians care that communist China was (and still is) holding Canadian and American citizens illegally, steals intellectual property from everyone around the world, is a rogue racist state, an authoritarian and totalitarian dictatorship, which is bent on global communist domination, which enslaves and arguably eliminates ethnic groups, and which pollutes the entire globe to beat hell.

The Port of Vancouver is sending record numbers of empty shipping containers to Asia ... The reason so many shipping containers are going back to Asia filled with nothing but air has to do with a surge in consumer demand for Asian goods ...

...There were 597,443 TEUs of empty containers exported from Vancouver in the first eight months of this year, up 89 per cent from the same period in 2020. And 2020 was previously the record-high year for empty-container shipments from the port.

Almost half of all the containers that have left Vancouver so far this year have been empty.

In total, the Port of Vancouver has handled 2.55 million TEUs of both imports and exports during the first eight months of 2021, up 17 per cent from the same period in 2020.

China is the largest shipper into the Port of Vancouver of containerized merchandise, including consumer goods.

What happened to all that bellyaching about "sustainability?" It doesn't apply to the country of Canada itself? Trudeau? Liberals? Maybe lose the woke BS, lose the love and admiration for "that basic dictatorship" and labels that read "Fabrique en Chine," raise the Canadian flag that you've shamed from its now months-long half-mast detention, and show you give more of a crap about Canada and its real, actual issues.

Hey has China relaxed its restrictions on tourists from the west yet? Asking for literally nobody.

Wall Street Journal —Don't plan your next trip to China without writing your will and saying goodbye to loved ones. The WSJ's editorial board is not impressed - with China or with President Biden and his team of surrender monkeys.

China’s Hostage Triumph

The U.S. lets Huawei’s CFO off easy, and Beijing frees two Canadians.

Westerners working in China are officially on notice. You could be arrested on trumped up charges at any time and used as hostages to promote Communist Party interests. That’s the message from the humiliating U.S. surrender to China’s hostage diplomacy in the case of Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou.

Canadian authorities arrested Ms. Meng in 2018 at the request of the U.S., which charged her with bank and wire fraud. Under a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) reached Friday, Ms. Meng was allowed to return to China without going to trial. She merely admitted to facts she had previously denied. Shortly thereafter, and right on cue, China released two Canadians it had arrested on phony charges not long after Ms. Meng’s arrest.

China’s immediate release of businessman Michael Spavor and former diplomat Michael Kovrig proves their arrest was a hostage-taking to pressure Canada and the U.S. over Ms. Meng. In China the law serves the Party. But in the U.S. the law is supposed to operate independent of political interests. ...

I'd no sooner visit China than I would North Korea, Iran, or Cuba.

“Health Reasons.” Fer sure, China.

Globe and Mail — It's not the Globe and Mail's fault. In this case, they're just reporting. And it — China — is just utterly insulting our intelligence and totally disrespecting us. I didn't even read the article because I don't take well to being insulted by communists or a-holes. But on the other hand, this one is all Globe and Mail. For me it's about the contrast between how they treated the last president's handling of the border crisis — a problem not of his own making; and how they are treating this president's handling of a far worse crisis of his and his comrades' own making. Media bias 101? Or them more simply utterly insulting our intelligence and totally disrespecting us?

Joe Oliver for leader? Alas no. But heed to his leadership.

Financial Post — Joe Oliver penned a good column today offering good conservative sense for Conservatives. So that's something different and worthwhile for you to read today in the papers increasingly filled with total bunk and muck — usually from lefties — about how the Conservatives need to go still further leftward to win. It's headlined "Conservatives must persuade the electorate, not pander to the left." And it's worth your read.

"...There is an economic and cultural route to broaden the appeal of Conservative values and policies: bring the public to you, rather than mimic the left-wing’s latest faddish ideals and retreaded socialist truths. That is what leadership is all about. ..."

Ronald Reagan believed in and practiced this philosophy very effectively, making wonderful speaches counseling his fellow conservatives to speak up — "in bold colors" — to convince the electorate to vote for the values — conservative values — which most of their fellow electorate actually already believed in. And he was one of the best and most popular presidents in US history. Joe Oliver wrote today about some of those Canadian conservative values, which, similarly, are actually Canadian values.
Joe Oliver isn't running to be the leader. He's 81 and is rightly enjoying retirement. But anybody who wants to follow in Ronald Regan's — or Joe Oliver's — footsteps is more than welcome to step up at this time, please.

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.

The Article

In the week that saw the release of studies confirming longstanding links between teen marijuana use and the onset of schizophrenia, our federal Liberal party released its own teen-loon, schizo-exec Young Liberals Vice-President Thomas Hubert, who referred to Israel as “the most vile ‘nation’ in history.” And yes, the 17-year old crackpot did put the word “nation” in quotes in his e-mail, as in “If Israel can be called a nation in the first place.”

Incidents that have happened in and around that unspeakable act of unspeakable language help to explain how we came to be subjected to such an assault in the first place. The lessons for raising youth with balanced minds are larger than a cracked ideology of induced stupidity.

First, a federal Liberal MP teamed with two others who need not be specified, in unsolicited campaigns on behalf of terrorist Hezbollah – going all the way to that savage group’s home-base in Lebanon to make the case – belligerently demanding that the group be removed from the Canadian, if not the entire Western terror list.

So federal NDP leader Jack Layton took the next logical, lunatic step, arguing that the Taliban, no less, that uniquely gynocidal agent of latter-day genocide, must be viewed as “fundamental” in negotiations for peace and stability in Afghanistan.

And Layton is on a roll. He just endorsed the overwhelming endorsement of his cabal at their policy convention in Québec, calling for immediate abandonment of our Afghan Mission, immediate withdrawal of our troops from our national commitment.

That NDP convention was to debate resolutions accusing Israel of “targetted murder” across imperialist domination of occupationist colonialism in Palestinian lands.

But! Don’t accuse these loons of extremist aspersions. They removed a statement from a resolution that referred to Canadian troops as “acting like terrorists.”

But!! Layton, again, belligerently refused to condemn any of that language.

What else do you expect from a teen-loon Liberal, exposed to such bewildering unreason? Hubert started out in the NDP (surprise!) rising rapidly to campaign manager and riding president – at just 16.

His father and the local media now say, “he’s just a kid.”

With that kind of accountability – or lack thereof – never mind what manner of profound ignorance has been his pablum, I say again: the real wonder is that we have any kids at all not mired in complete crackhead idiocy.

So successful has been NDP and (growing) Liberal conflation of our Afghan Mission on the one hand, with the war to liberate Iraq, on the other, that a new poll needs to be commissioned immediately.

We must ask Canadians but one simple question:

Did federal NDP leader Jack Layton just urge immediate withdrawal of Canadian troops from Iraq, and only Iraq?

And remember, it’s not Iran/Iraq, just in case you were inclined to excuse confusion. Our participation in Afghanistan, passed under the federal Liberals, was well cemented before the Iraq debate gathered. There was no mass confusion, then. It cannot be explained away now. Except in terms of something that is nothing less than a diabolical perversion of language, logic and plain reality.

Even Hubert, in his moment of mortification, gave it all away. He said that he was “trying to get adjusted to the ‘kind of language’ that was appropriate for the Liberal party.”

Language? As in, something simply slipped, but his actual ugly attitude toward Israel is not the problem, then? He just needs to find better linguistic Teflon to give it a Clintonian cover? This is the “boy” who referred to Jews as a “community” of “absurdly selfish” creatures who defend a “ ‘state’ that survives on the blood of innocent people.”

And yes, again, the “boy” put the word “state” in quotes, again, as in “If you can call the Jewish State a state in the first place.”

What we have here is some deep-structure stupidity that transcends all manner of language.

Yet as quickly as the fuss started, our media made sure the smoke cleared. After all, we wouldn’t want to destroy the future of the “natural governing party of Canada.”

I’m even surprised that the kid had to “resign.” So what I need to do now is to take you back a fair bit, back to the exact place where the precocious punk got his very specific language, in order to remove all doubt about the Liberal legacy of New Hate and Deconstructed Intolerance. You need to know the precise nature of the danger of exposing your children to liberals.

Voltaire. Rousseau. Montesquieu. The 18th Century superstars, the unholy trinity of the so-called Enlightenment. They flourished in France, which gave them their odd title: philosophes (thinkers). But the History of Ideas has properly downgraded the philosophes from philosophers. Philosophes just aren’t deep enough, they’re not thorough in their jumble of eccentric creativity. They slap too many wild ideas together, they simply don’t probe well enough. They miss the mark: philosophers-manqué. They fall short, they’re lacking.

But there is nothing lacking in the savage way they put together prevailing notions of The Jewish Race and Nation.

Especially Voltaire. Voltaire of the Jew whose mother “commerces” with goats. Voltaire of the “barbarous” Jews who “immolate” their children. “Anthropophagous”: Man-Eater. Cannibal Jew.

This is not generic European anti-Semitism. This is endemic French ignorance. This is the anthropophaginian source of teen-lib Thomas Hubert’s Israel that survives on the blood of innocent people.

It has, you see, come right down to our own day. To our own ungodly trinity that went on that terror-hugging mission to Lebanon. One of the three, Bloc Québécois MP, Maria Mourani, who is said to be of “Lebanese descent,” referred to classification of Hezbollah as terrorist and Canadian support of Israel as “Canada’s shame.”

Now it was unequivocal support for Israel in the recent attack by Hezbollah that started to draw down federal Conservative numbers, particularly in Québec.

All the more reason why we must fight savagely to articulate aspirations against old hate in terms of our overall Middle East mission, addressing Canadians, in and out of Québec.

Otherwise, we assume that what Voltaire hath put together no genius or good will can take apart.

Then what exactly are we to do – in and out of Québec? Cough up Israel?

Loon-lib punks like Thomas Hubert are choking on old hate like kittens on a fur ball. We need to tell them flat out that we can no more cough up Israel than we can cough up the entire enterprise of humanity and Civilization.
