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. 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?

The Article


I believe they’ve turned a page.

In at least the second shocker of the day, the state-owned socialism-reliant CBC reported good economic news today, but again, they sandwiched it with “buts”.  Or maybe butt cheeks. 

Yes, U.S. retail sales were UP in January—and the CBC reported it.  You can tell, because their banner, which usually reads the likes of “RETAIL CRASH!” and “RETAIL TAILSPIN!” and “RETAIL DISMAL!”  and “CAPITALISM IS A FAILURE!”, to wit…

image  image

this sales are up story is accompanied by a banner which reads… “RETAIL”, to wit:


And of course the language is priceless. 

“And a surprising thing happened last month in the U.S.!…”  (Well not nearly as surprising as you reporting it, Mizzz Lee).

Shortly after she got over the “surprise”, Mizz Lee advised us (and I quote) “But it could just be a blip!” 

This was followed by the business reporter inventing all manner of excuses —on behalf of the capitalism is dead! set’s mantra, perhaps —to helpfully explain the “blip”…  such as the “fact” that it could just be (and I quote) “suddenly frugal Americans may have waited for the January sales to rummage through the discount bins for everything from food to clothing and electronics and maybe also to spend their gift cards!”  (Yeah it must be something weird, since you all have been trash-talking and FEAR MONGERING since I don’t know when). 

She went on:  “Some analysts don’t buy the idea that the January sales bump can be sustained. Stock investors aren’t impressed either, major markets are ratcheting up losses again today!”  [UPDATE AT STOCK MARKET CLOSE: Dow dropped all of 6 points.  That’s a “ratcheting up” of a loss of 0.08 percent or eight-tenths of one percent.]

Then the primal base liberal urges emerge, as she talks-up the favorite liberal-left cause of all: booze and sex.  Yes condoms and condom sales are “u-up, Nancy!”. 

image  “Two other business that do well in hard times:  booze and sex!!  Sales at Diageo, the world’s biggest spirits maker were up at the end of last year, Nancy, as markets were falling apart, and condom sales were also u—up, uh six percent in January—this is according to uh the Nielsen company which should know these things I guess!”  [Laughter and giggles from both]

CBC anchor Nancy Wilson:   “Not touching that—not touching that at all but interesting to know!!” [Laughter and giggles from both]

CBC business reporter Jeannie Lee:   “Well you know ‘personal stimulus package’ I say!” [Laughter and giggles from both]

CBC anchor Nancy Wilson:   “Oh very good!  Very good!  I can’t top that!  I won’t try!”  [Laughter and giggles from both]


As if to prove they’re just barely short of crass, depraved, sex-obsessed liberal asses from Saturday Night Live, with no sense of journalistic propriety on the supposedly serious taxpayer-owned and funded “news” channel, the ever so subtle Jeannie Lee, in her next “YOUR BUSINESS” segment update, expands on the, gee, golly, GIANT BIG AND LONG AND HARD AND WARM PENIS ERECTION? (there you go, clever Mizzz Faux Prude) theme.  In the next segment, she added this hard news: 

imageCBC Business reporter Jeannie Lee:  “If the soft economy has you staying at home, throwing an extra layer on to stay warm, join the club!  Sales of condoms were up… more nesting, more need for cheap entertainment … and more need to avoid a BIG and LONG expense nine months down the line!  ..One condom maker is … offering more coupons to print on its web site Andrew, if you want to play it safe, fiscally and physically!”

CBC News anchor Andrew Nichols:  [blushing and looking sheepish] “Aren’t they clever.  ‘Cheap entertainment’ though?“ 

Business reporter Jannie Lee: “Well cheaper than, you know, your $300 dinners that I used to go to!” 

CBC News anchor Andrew Nichols:  “All right Jeannie, thanks very much.” 

Great.  Now we learn about Jeannie Lee’s sexual escapades, in which she used to be entertained by $300 dinners, and now finds casual sex a cheaper form of entertainment. 

I’m not real sure the news anchor and the business reporter should engage in crass, cheap sex talk in the middle of my morning coffee, on a state-owned, publicly-funded news channel.  Actually I’m absolutely sure of it.

No word so far from the CBC reporters and anchors about the actual joining of penises with VAGINAS, though, since that would be inappropriatepolitically incorrect— and no doubt strictly forbidden according the CBC style guide, in deference to the homosexuals, transsexuals, those who decry “sexual identity”, and the other elements of their viewer base.
