I realize that the Globe writer John Ibbitson has written some rotten columns before, most of them in praise of Stephen Harper.
And I realize he works for a newspaper that somehow managed to endorse the Cons, if not Harper, in the last election.
Which was of course somewhere between absurdity, and insanity.
And after the way Harper and his foul Cons raped this country during the Decade of Darkness, was totally disgusting.
But Ibbitson's last two columns, the most recent in praise of Andrew Scheer, are just as absurd, and just as morally depraved.

They've been praying up a storm at the White House, laying their hands on Donald Trump.
And begging for heavenly intervention, or at least a get-out-of-jail card.
But it's going to take more than the power of prayer to save Trump and his corrupt regime.
And nobody knows that more than the mad king himself.

As you know, I believe that the decision by Andrew Scheer's Cons to take their campaign against the Khadr settlement to the U.S. on the eve of the NAFTA talks, can only be described as treason.
So I'm glad to see that even some in the Con media agree.
Conservatives are entitled to object to the Liberal government’s $10.5 million payment to Omar Khadr, even to make as much political hay of it as they can. But taking their quarrel to the United States is a little too close to treason in these sensitive times.
But don't expect Scheer to agree.

The other day I accused Stephen Harper of acting in a treasonous manner, by trashing his country in Trump's America for crass political purposes.
But now his filthy Harper Party has taken that traitorous behaviour one foul step further.
By threatening to destroy tens of thousands of Canadian jobs.

As I like to say every time I write about Cheryl Gallant, this is all you really need to know about that ghastly Con clown:
She's a religious fanatic, and a brutish anti-gay and anti-Muslim bigot. She told wounded soldiers suffering from PTSD that any stigma was in their heads. She has compared abortion to a terrorist beheading.
She has heaped scorn on Atlantic Canadians who earn their living on the sea, for depending on the Coast Guard to rescue them. She calls environmentalists plant eaters, regularly compares the Liberals to the Nazis.
And needless to say is always disgracing herself.

When Stephen Harper stumbled into the night after his humiliating election defeat at the hands of Justin Trudeau, I thought it would be a long long time before we saw or heard from him again.
And for almost two years that seemed to be the case, as he kept a very low profile, or only came out after midnight.
But now the Omar Khadr settlement has roused him from his crypt.
And he's back and as ugly as ever.

I've been having too much of a good time sailing and fishing in the north of Scotland to keep up with what has been happening in Canada.
But everywhere I go, as soon as people find out I'm a Canadian, they can't wait to tell me how much they admire Justin Trudeau.
And how they wish he was their prime minister.
So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out that Trudeau is in trouble back home.

I've written many posts about the case of Omar Khadr. I consider the way that Canadian child soldier was treated by his own government to be one of the worst legal travesties in modern Canadian history.
And one that should shame us all.
So I'm glad to see that he is finally going to get some justice.
And as usual, I am disgusted by the reaction of Cons like Jason Kenney.

As you know today is July the Fourth, or Independence Day in the United States.
But as you also know, many of our good neighbours have very little or nothing to celebrate this year.
With the look on the face of the Statue of Liberty no doubt even more sombre than the day it arrived in America.
With the country's presidency hijacked.
Well I must say my Canada 150 long weekend was about 150% better than I had hoped it would be.
The music and the fireworks were amazing. Some friends from Montreal were staying with me, so I was able to party in both official languages.
And for the first time I felt that our other founding nations were being recognized at last.
