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.

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.

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

The liberals’ Globe and Mail and their sister, the liberalvision CTV network, have had their polling firm which is called something like The National Committee of Co-opted Liberal-Left Strategery and Compliance with Leftists Trendy ‘Tudes in the Hood Council, do another one of their hideously stupid polls.  It seems to me these are designed only to test the progress of the “progressive” liberal media’s latest of their ongoing efforts at driving Canada ever leftward (a job that is never done, apparently) so that they can massage and adjust their media message accordingly, and ultimately achieve their ignoble ends.

There’s simply no other reasonable explanation for the stupidity of constantly polling a nation’s people regarding whether or not they’re kinda like tired of its war yet, today, and how they think the war should be micromanaged on the field—taking prisoners, what to do with them exactly, whether to negotiate with the enemy, and over tea and buns?  Or scones?…

But the reporting of the absolutely predictable results of their polls (they’re designed to be this predictable, I think), simply adds humour to the stupidity. Read this sneering reporter’s (apparently his name is “CTV News Staff”) condemnation of the opponents of his man General (“Taliban Jack”) Layton of the you’ve got to be kidding party at CTV.ca, after their polling and media effectiveness testing division drummed-up another one of their claptrap polls, in which it is revealed with much fanfare that most Canadians believe we should now “negotiate” with the savage, barbaric, Islamofascist terrorist enemy (clearly my adjectives, not CTV’s.  CTV opted for the word “Taliban” instead, because that’s what they call themselves.  If they called themselves “The Good Guys”, the liberal media would obediently call this “Canada’s war against The Good Guys”): 

Canadians support talks with Taliban: poll
Updated Sun. May. 20 2007 11:00 PM ET

CTV.ca News Staff

[…] When NDP Leader Jack Layton called for peace talks with the Taliban last fall, Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay later called the approach “naive.” Some wags started calling Layton “Taliban Jack.” 

[…]

Yeah.  Like me.  Because the good Peter MacKay, like my fellow members of the sensible set, know that what General (Taliban) Jack was calling for was for our troops to summarily split the joint, and to then supplant them and our fighting mission with a cabal of nobs like Buzz Hargrove and Svend Robinson to negotiate, instead, almost like civilized people, with Mullah Mohammad Omar, over tea and buns. 

But let’s quickly hit the dictionary while we’re here: “Wags” means humorous or droll people.  A “Droll” person is described as a buffoon.  But I’m sure the reporter meant it in a nice way.  No bias here.  Have a nice day.

According to the liberal media style guide, when they want to emphasize opposition to conservatives, the media calls the opponents (always unnamed) “critics”, as in, ”…but many critics are known to be against the Conservatives’ policy…”.  But when they’re speaking of opponents of their socialist brothers in arms, they’re dismissively called “wags”.  As in “some wags…”  Thank God for editors or it’d be “buffoons”

I actually think they (liberals) hope polls like this will show with great authority that Canada should cut and run like little girls and effete boys donning pantywaists from all the “hard stuff” that life presents, and then deploy the official “cross yer fingers” foreign relations tactic espoused by General Taliban Jack, supplemented by more of those yummy national social programs which are designed to further weaken a person’s resolve and to rely even more fully on big government.

Agenda-driven media liberals like this who constantly poll Canadians about matters of war as if war should be fought on the basis of daily changing polls, are simpletons of the highest order, with nothing better to do.  Only pinheads believe that American Idol-style pop-sociology polls conducted by self-inflated experts who make cash by testing their liberal media boss’s agenda-driving techniques —and then reporting the results as if conclusive—are doing the nation a service.  They’re not. They’re harming the nation’s resolve, its morale, and that of our fighting troops.  Worse:  I think they’re doing it on purpose.

Damaging the resolve and the morale of a nation and its troops is an effective technique used in all wars by all enemies.  It is said that the object of the battles of war is not to merely kill all of the enemy, cause horrendous damage, and generally destroy the place, but to so destroy the morale and resolve of the enemy that they ultimately just give up, leaving the place largely intact.  This tactic succeeded in Afghanistan and both Iraq wars, at least initially, when in a matter of weeks, huge enemy forces literally threw up their hands and surrendered in the face of apparently insurmountable odds. 

But nothing except the lessons not learned from the Vietnam war could have prepared me for the foe using—and thus being—the media in my own country.  Liberals and their media are doing to our country what our enemy seeks to do to win the war—causing a loss of morale and our national resolve.  So that we lose.  Go team. 

And all this media combat action is to help their masters score cheap political points, and gain power. 

As if to prove it’s all political, in the same article there is a palatable sense of glee in the reporter’s writing when he suggests that ”[The pollster’s Mr.] Donolo said 57 per cent of Conservative Party members supported the idea of negotiations.”  So they asked exactly what political party those polled belonged to, huh?  This revelation betrays two facts:  (1) that of course most Conservative Party members are not conservatives, which is what I’ve been saying without polling for years (think Stronach and Brison and half of the “conservatives” you hear from and talk to today); and (2) the poll was political more than anything else, and done with a pro-liberal-leftist peacenik agenda in mind, rather than with what I would call a neutral attitude: a patriotic, pro-Canadian, let’s win this war attitude —an attitude which was apparently suppressed if it existed at all in this case.  Such is the manner of all liberal media reporting on this war on terror.  And, as we can see, the subsequent, successful, testing results.
