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

Passionate, compassionate, caring, loving, kind, polite Canadians. Balanced. Moderate. Calm. Loving. Not the least xenophobic. Tolerant. Inclusive. That’s Canada, “eh?”

No. That’s utter bull. Get your head straight. You deserve to understand your country more accurately than that.

The media and many of its “elites” (all self-anointed) spend more time bitching and kvetching and pointing at and mocking Trump (to the best of their ability anyway), than they do anything or anyone in Canada including their dear leader, and literally their benefactor, Justin Trudeau. Challenge the Conservatives they do. But Trudeau? No, rather, they defend him, explain-away his nonsense, and run cover for him all day long. On state-owned, taxpayer-paid television and radio, and in taxpayer-supported newspapers. So here’s a bit of self-reflection for a change.

None of this is unusual, unfortunately, but here’s a Twitter thread I found today, May 7, 2020. As the “Likes” to the tweet piled up, I had to have a look-see. I wish I didn’t. It reminded me of the horrible comments I have found at the state-owned CBC over the years (which are among the worst, most despicable bits of commentary I have ever found on the internet, anywhere in the world, some of which I’ve documented here over the years).

That’s the original tweet. Not happy news, right? Right. You’d think. But it’s happy or hopeful news to some of those loving, compassionate, friendly, polite Canadians. I screen-captured their comments in case they get any sense, they grew up, or maybe some friend of theirs (assuming they have any) set them straight on, you know, “life,” and they do as they should, and delete their tweets, then possibly delete their entire accounts. This would happily ruin my demonstration of ugly Canadians in action.

Like many of the others, that comment above got a “Like,” so I went to see who in Hell’s name would like a morbid death-wish like that. Here’s who:

Phoebe Greene: “I practice respect for all ppls … except when you’re just plain being hateful. Lover of all…”

Yeah I’m gonna have to call bullshit on you and your entire fake principle set, there, doll. Here’s her own tweet:

I guess a hug is love, generally, but in this case it’s demonstrably hate. And disrespect. On purpose. So there’s that.

Let’s carry on:

In fact, so many Canadians are among the stupidest people I know in the world. And they demonstrate it daily, often as in this case, as a mindless reflex. A kneejerk, hateful, perverted, unthinking reflex, usually smugly posted off-handedly as an anonymous comment. That is not an intelligent action, or that of a thoughtful person. This is hate, stupidity, and mindless group-think.

This isn’t a simple case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. This sort of smug, morbid, ghoulish death-wish, expressed with such glee and so openly, is simply sociopathic. This is a psychotic response to a bit of awful news. It’s reacting exactly the polar opposite of the way in which almost every Conservative and conservative reacts, to, for example, Sophie Trudeau’s COVID-19 diagnosis.

This is puerile, it’s playing politics like it’s a mindless team-sport, but worse, it’s a sport in which the audience actually hopes for death, and the ruination of families (no care, concern, or remorse expressed for the valet here) and the hope for the disease-killing of an American president — therefore the upending of an entire country, and one upon which Canada totally depends — literally for its very life as we know it. They clap like morons (or literally, as shown, like Minions) when something bad happens in the U.S. as long as a Republican is president, and especially now that Trump is president, but mostly, it’s only while all of the establishment forces are giving them cover for their intolerance and hate, and actually joining in. They get positive feedback from others in their perverted club.

This anti-Trump, anti-Republican, anti-conservative, and more broadly, the anti-USA fetish among the left — including even what I used to think of as the intelligents in Canadian media like some reporters and columnists — is a perversion that is destructive to democracy, and divisive beyond the pale. Divisive and destructive here in Canada, to be clear.

If CTV “News” had any self-respect, they’d delete their tweet, thus hiding all those comments/replies. It would actually serve Canada’s interests to do that.

Proud to be Canadian? Yeah no. Not when I see this bullshit from so many Canadians.
