Why Do So Many Trump Supporters Still Believe What He Says?



According to some reports Donald Trump's friends are worried about him. They say he's never sounded so agitated, and never looked so bagged.

Which is of course great news, for it suggests that he could be felled by stroke or a heart attack, even before he's impeached or forced to resign.

But what really worries me is the sad state of his supporters.

For so many of them still believe everything he tells them.

Donald Trump and the 2020 Nightmare



Donald Trump has only been in office for five months, but to me and I'm sure many others all over the world it seems longer than that. Much longer.

So you can imagine how I felt when I heard that the orange oaf is already making plans to occupy the Oval Office for a full EIGHT years.

And that I might have to endure his insane behaviour for what might seem like forever. 

For let's face it, this is insanity.

The Abominable Cowardice of Andrew Scheer



This much we know about Andrew Scheer, the man who likes to call himself Stephen Harper Two, or Harper with a smile.

We know he is a serious religious fanatic, who owes Brad Trost his new job.

We know that his political philosophy is more Republican than Canadian.

But who knew he was such an appalling coward?

The Con Bigot Party and the Shame of Kellie Leitch



You might think that Kellie Leitch had embarrassed herself enough. Done what was left of her reputation enough damage.

During the last election, her cultural barbarism show bombed so bad, the stench alone helped bring down the Harper regime.



And the way her campaign for the Con leadership race went down in flames, after all that effort, and all that money, couldn't have been more humiliating.

But it seems that Leitch just can't control herself, and now she's embarrassing herself and her party again.

Is Donald Trump Getting Tired of Playing President?



Donald Trump made his first visit to Camp David on the weekend, no doubt hoping to escape the madding media, and try to pull himself together, after yet another terrible week in office.

A week where he seemed to confirm that he was under investigation, and was seen yelling at TV sets in the White House.

So he really needed a leafy break.

But Camp David has only a one-hole golf course, so Trump did have time to tweet.



Only to reveal once again his compulsive need to compare himself to Obama, and show how desperate he is becoming.

Is Andrew Scheer a Ghastly Con or a Reagan Republican?



We already knew that Andrew Scheer is a sinister religious fanatic, who doesn't believe in women's rights, and believes that gay Canadians are "abhorrent."

We knew that he likes to smile a lot, even when he's talking about child rape and other dirty sex stuff in the House of Commons.

Except when he is in his office working on plans to turn Canada into a theocracy.

But who knew that he was more American than Canadian?

Trump Caesar and Ezra Levant's Rebel Loonies



It's a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar. It's being staged in New York's Central Park.

And it's controversial because its Caesar looks a lot like Donald Trump, and his supporters can't stand the sight of their hero being assassinated.



And neither it seems can Ezra Levant.

Jeremy Corbyn and the Politics of Hope



I must admit I'm still enjoying the aftermath of the British election.

Seeing the Cons and their media stooges trying to explain why Jeremy Corbyn is so popular with young people.

After all the Corbyn haters did to try to destroy him.

And failing in an epic manner, even though the answer is so simple.

Isn't It Time To Ask What's Wrong With Donald Trump?



You can see the fear in Donald Trump's piggy eyes. You can smell his desperation.

After somebody shot some Republican congressmen, he tried so hard to look and sound like a president. 

But that new found restraint only lasted for about 48-hours.

Before his madness erupted again.

LGBT Rights and the Trudeau Legacy



After fighting for years for their human rights, and having to endure the most disgusting discrimination and violence, this was a good week for transgendered Canadians.

A few days ago at a ceremony to mark Pride Month, they saw their flag raised on Parliament Hill for the first time.

And yesterday they finally got their transgender bill of rights. 

Transgender Canadians will soon have the same human rights protections as everyone else, after the government's attempt to add gender identity to the Canadian Human Rights Act passed in the Senate Thursday afternoon.

And for both of those things they can thank Justin Trudeau.

Trumpdiddlydumper's Worst Birthday Ever



It was Donald Trump's 71st birthday yesterday, and I think it's safe to say it wasn't a very happy one.

First he found out that somebody had been shooting Republicans.

Which since he is notoriously cowardly, must have had him wondering whether he might be next, and whether he really needed to be president.

Then came the devastating news that the gunman wasn't a Muslim.

And then came the worst news of all.

Brad Trost and the Shaming of Andrew Scheer



As I'm sure you know, Brad Trost is a religious fanatic who likes to think of himself as a holy warrior battling Muslims, women who need an abortion, and gay people.

Not necessarily in that order.

And like most religious fanatics he likes to think that he is better than we are.

So this must be REALLY embarrassing.

Donald Trump's Deeply Disturbing Loyalty Test



Donald Trump is still claiming that he did not try to force James Comey to sign a loyalty oath.

And that Comey is the liar not him.

But yesterday we got an idea of the kind of loyalty Boss Trump demands from those who work for him.

And not only did it reinforce Comey's claim, it couldn't have been more disturbing or more disgusting.

Donald Trump and the True Meaning of Idiot



He's desperately trying to restrain himself. His lawyers have warned him that his tweets could be used against him one day.

And could be the difference between the White House and the Big House.

But ever since James Comey called him a liar, in front of a television audience of about 19 million people, Donald Trump has been slowly going crazy, or crazier.

First he declared Comey's devastating testimony to be a big, or a yuuuuuuuge victory for HIMSELF.

And now it seems he actually believes that he can get away with portraying himself as the victim, and Comey as a criminal.

The Hidden Face of Andrew Scheer



As you know, I've been trying to warn people that Andrew Scheer is not the nice guy he pretends to be.

Warn them that his perma smile conceals the frightening depth of his religious fanaticism, as well as a truly ugly mean streak.

And that far from being a howdy doody farm boy, Scheer is a ruthless Con operative,
and as great a threat to this country as was Stephen Harper.

Is Donald Trump Just Too Stupid To Be President?



I must admit that when I saw Donald Trump holding a rare news conference yesterday I was absolutely shocked.

Not just by the way he looked, like a man about to keel over.

But also by the crazy things he was saying.

Or blowing out of his pie hole.

Theresa May and the Nasty Bigot Party



Uh oh. Somebody call a tow truck. It seem that Theresa May isn't going anywhere. 

She may have been humiliated by Jeremy Corbyn, she may have lost all those Tory seats.

Some of her Cons are drawing straws to see who gets the honour of stabbing her in the back.

But she seems determined to try to cling to power, with the help of a nasty little gang.

Friday, June 09, 2017

Theresa May and the Amazing Campaign of Jeremy Corbyn



When Theresa May called a snap election, I'm pretty sure she was confident her Cons would be able to destroy Jeremy Corbyn. 

Her campaign manager Lynton Crosby, the malignant Aussie known as the Wizard or Lizard of Oz, must have had her dreaming of making meat pies out of the mild-mannered Labour Party leader.

And no doubt also reminding her that even many of Corbyn's own MPs, the lost followers of Tony Blair, thought he was dead man walking. 

After the Con media had spent years demonizing him...

How You Can Help Put The Squeeze On The Rebel



As you know, Ezra Levant likes to call himself a "Rebel Commander" and portray himself and The Rebel as a champions of free speech.

Even though The Rebel is just a tacky hate mongering rag, which should have been closed down long ago by the vice squad.

And Levant is only in it for the money. 

Donald Trump and the Day of the Comey



I'm sure Donald Trump's White House minions are doing their best to prepare him for James Comey's Senate hearing today.

But it won't be easy, because it's going to be a big event.

So while Trump is threatening to live tweet the hearing, other Republicans are doing their best to discredit Comey.

By running attack ads like this one.

Donald Trump, James Comey, and the Coming War With Iran



I can only imagine what kind of state Donald Trump must be in as James Comey, the FBI director he fired, prepares to testify tomorrow.

But it can't be very pretty.

Not when Boss Trump probably thought he had "fixed" the Comey problem...



So now he's hopping mad...

Will Trump's Latest Twitter Orgy Be The Beginning Of The End?



Donald Trump has had many bad Twitter moments, that have demeaned him and his country, and shocked the world.

But that usually end up with Trump staring into a pool of excrement and liking what he sees.

But his trip to Europe and the Middle East exhausted him.

The idea that James Comey is coming back to haunt him, must be giving him bad dreams



And the volley of tweets he released in the last 48 hours may well mark the beginning of the end of his presidency.

Michael Harris On The Cheating Party of Canada



As I'm sure you know Andrew Scheer, the smiling religious fanatic is trying to give himself a saintly image.

Or at least portray himself as an aw shucks, gee whiz, Jimmy Stewart version of a priest or a farm boy.

So there he was the other day at the Press Gallery dinner, chugging milk out of a carton, while all the others got drunk.

But sadly for him it's just not working.

The Marvellous Message of the One Love Manchester Concert



I must admit I'd never heard of Ariana Grande before the terror attack in Manchester two weeks ago.

And neither had I heard of many of the young artists who performed at her One Love Manchester benefit show yesterday evening.

Ariana Grande returned to the Manchester stage two weeks after a suicide bombing killed 22 victims at her concert in the city, singing upbeat and motivational pop anthems as the audience cheered loudly for the singer.

But despite feeling a bit old, I quite enjoyed the show, and I have to agree with the Globe's John Doyle.

Donald Trump and the Man Who Would Poison the World



I could barely watch the coverage of this latest terrorist attack. 

It was all so insane and so cowardly, and I felt I'd seen it all before. 

And what made it even more disgusting was to see Donald Trump try to turn that tragedy into bigotry, for crass political purposes.

President Donald Trump on Saturday evening said the United States needs "the travel ban as an extra level of safety" following multiple fatal incidents in London. "We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety," the president tweeted at 7:17 p.m.

When in fact he's the one we need to be protected from.

The greatest would be terrorist on earth.

The Harper Regime's Inhuman Legacy Takes Another Blow



It was just another dull government statement of the kind they churn out all the time. But it really made my day.

Because what it means is that in another Canadian city, fewer people like those in the picture are going to die from drug overdoses. 

Today, Health Canada granted the necessary exemptions from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act for the operation of three new supervised consumption sites in Toronto.

And not only is that great news because of the thousands of lives that will be saved.

It's also another massive blow to the inhuman legacy of the monstrous Harper regime...

Should Andrew Scheer Resign as Con Leader?



It was such a moving photo. Maxime "Mad Max" Bernier raising the arm of Andrew "Smiley" Scheer, at the end of the Con leadership convention.

And for a moment it looked like that long running Con mob story would have a happy ending.

But sadly for them, and the Harper Party, that good feeling didn't last.

Because now Bernier and his gang are coming after Scheer !!!!

Donald Trump and the End of the (American) World As We Know It.



A few months ago the big German magazine Der Spiegel ran this cover of Donald Trump.

With the title "The End of the World, As We Know it."

And yesterday when the flaming orange proclaimed that the U.S. is pulling out of the Paris Accord, it was shared on social media all over the planet.

But while it is a good cover, I think I like this other cover better...

Donald Trump and the Day of Judgement



As you may know, today is the day Donald Trump will announce whether he will pull the United States out of the Paris Accord.

Momentous arguments inside the West Wing over the future of the Paris climate accord became a messy public spectacle on Wednesday, with some aides saying that President Trump had decided to abandon the landmark global warming agreement while others insisted that no decision had been made.

With the world watching nervously, the feuding among the president’s aides further exposed the fault lines of a chaotic decision-making process that has swirled around Mr. Trump since he took office.


And it's not surprising that the world is holding its breath, since not only is his government a mess, he's not in great shape either.

Donald Trump's Most Miserable Homecoming



Donald Trump may be back in the White House, after his disastrous tour of the Middle East and Europe. But he's not a happy man.

He has "family problems." 

Jared Kushner deserves a bit of sympathy. All his life he’s been serving his father or father-in-law. All his career he’s been thrust into roles he’s not ready for. His background has ill prepared him for national government. Now he is in a realm where his instincts seem to lead him astray and where there’s a chance he will end up in disgrace and possibly under indictment.

He must be wondering whether Jared and him are going to end up in the Big House together.

So it couldn't be a worse homecoming.

Andrew Scheer and the Theocon Conspiracy



It was a bizarre sight, and a deeply disturbing one.

Andrew Scheer preparing to address his caucus for the first time as leader. 

Looking like a minister about to deliver a sermon, or lead his Con flock to the Promised Land.

But still claiming that he is not a religious fanatic.

Monday, May 29, 2017

Andrew Scheer and The Rebel Connection



I'm pretty sure that most Canadians know very little about Andrew Scheer, the new leader of the Cons, who likes to call himself "Harper with a smile."

They just see a friendly looking man who always has a smile on his face, even when he's talking about the recent death of his mother. 

Or trying to stick a metaphorical knife into the back of Justin Trudeau.

But sadly, Scheer is not as nice as he appears to be. He's a dangerous religious fanatic who could threaten the rights of millions of Canadians.

Just don't expect our Con media to warn people about that, because they're too busy trying to make Ol' Smiley look like a nice guy, and a real leader.

The Day The Cons Became the Reform Party Again



When I saw Rona Ambrose at the Con convention giving her farewell speech, praising herself extravagantly  and bragging about how "she could kick Trudeau in the balls," I knew it was going to be a weird night.

And that I was right, Ambrose has no class.

But who knew the Cons would end up giving themselves, and their chances of winning the next election, a kick in the same place?

After electing as their new leader a religious fanatic described as "Harper with a smile."

The Simpsons on Donald Trump's 125 Days in Power



After nine days abroad in Europe and the Middle East Donald Trump is on his back to Washington and calling his trip a "home run."

When in fact it was a total disaster, and Trump never looked so crazy and dangerous. 

President Trump failed to commit to remaining within the Paris climate agreement during a two-day meeting with world leaders that ended here Saturday, but he tweeted that he was still considering it and would announce a final decision “next week.”

He was however able to dodge questions from the media, but as the Simpsons predict, now it's back to reality.

The Ghastly Beginning of the Con Clown Convention



As I watched the Con leadership candidates deliver their final speeches yesterday evening I was struck by three things:

How small the convention room was, how old and white the audience.

And how absurd were those speeches

Thirteen candidates vying to replace Stephen Harper as permanent Conservative leader delivered their final speeches Friday night, pitching their vision for the country and urging party unity in the wake of a long and sometimes divisive campaign.

When most of the Cons had already voted.

Jared Kushner and the Trump Corruption Scandal



Well there he was at the Western Wall the other day, trying to look as pious as possible. 

But when you're Donald Trump that's not easy.

No matter how hard you try...



And by the time he visited the pope his first family act was looking a little monstrous...

Nigel Wright and the Con Scandal That Won't Die



The timing couldn't have been more embarrassing for the Cons. 

On Saturday they will choose a new leader, and Rona Ambrose is still desperately trying to whip up interest in the event...

As well as trying to make Canadians believe that the Cons have changed, and are now the New/Nouveau Conservative Party.

When along comes a blast from the past, to remind us who they really are...

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Rona Ambrose and the Bleak Future of the Cons



With just three days to go before the Cons choose a new leader, I see that Rona Ambrose is still trying to whip up some interest in the event.

Still claiming that she was always planning to leave. 

“If I was going to stay in politics, I would have run for the full leadership. I made that choice then. I knew I was going to leave.”

And still insisting that her decision to run for the exit had nothing to do with the dilapidated state of the Harper Party.

Is the Donald Trump Story Making People Sick?



Oh boy. I thought I was going to be able to completely ignore Donald Trump's Magical Mystery Tour of the Middle East this week end.

Which would have been good, because quite frankly I've got to break my Trump Show addiction, before I end up like him. Bellowing incoherently, feeling sorry for myself. And making no sense.

But then I saw that photo of Lord Blobby with the Egyptian dictator, and the senile King of Saudi Arabia, and the glowing orb.

And I was hooked again....

Why Justin Trudeau Has The Wind In His Sails



It's getting pretty close to my favourite time of the year. Time to think about harnessing the wind out on the lake, and getting away from it all.

Now that I have almost recovered from my motorcycle accident.

Or just taking to my hammock, reading some real books, and making a list of the many reasons I love living in Canada.

And this would would be one of them.

Donald Trump's Russian Problem Just Keeps Getting Worse



Oh well, at least now we know why those Russian diplomats seemed to be having such a good time in the Oval Office, while Donald Trump seemed strangely out of it.

Not only had he shared some top-secret intelligence with them, after ordering the White House media out of the room.

It seems Trump also told the Russians why he had fired the FBI director James Comey.

And once again managed to shoot himself in the foot.

By making himself sound both guilty AND crazy.

The Lamentable Legacy of the Con Clown Rona Ambrose



It's not a very good picture, but I thought I'd keep it anyway, because it's historic. 

Sort of.

A picture of the Con Queen Rona Ambrose announcing that she's retiring from federal politics. 

Which as you can imagine had the Cons and the pathetic Con media in a tizzy, praising her as the Greatest Prime Minister Canada Never Had.

And had the idiot Ambrose aka The Village Idiot, no doubt thinking it was only what she deserved.

Donald Trump and the Demon Child In His Head



It's hardly surprising that Donald Trump is not happy with the appointment of a special counsel.



But judging by that tweet this morning, the voices in his head are now all screaming at the same time.

And when Trump visited the U.S. Coast Guard Academy yesterday, they did provoke him into an orgy of self pity.
