CBC uses chick click-bait; no doubt because of a lack of government funding

Joel Johannesenig, big story at the state-owned CBC web site today, as seen at right under their heading “Editor’s Picks.”  Alas, no, it’s not a story about the CBC Editor’s choice for “sexiest babe.” It’s about stomach pain. Duh. Can’t you tell from the photo? They could have chosen the totally innocuous science-type graphic, like […]

Globe and Mail smear merchants get butt hurt with embarrassing smackdown after baseless personal attack

Joel JohannesenSmear merchants at Globe and Mail got their embarrassing comeuppance when Peter MacKay’s wife took the high road and easily schooled arrogant writer Leah McLaren, who wrote “An open letter to Peter MacKay’s wife,” with a classy rebuke, “An open letter to Leah McLaren”. The Globe and  Mail, through Leah McLaren, embarked on a gratuitous, totally uncalled-for personal […]

State-owned CBC “analysis” of tea party: black-hating, “rape-denying,” “neo-confederates.”

Joel Johannesen ANALYSIS  – Possibly the stupidest column of 2014, so far: a breathless, hate-filled “analysis” of the tea party from one of the most arrogant, conservative-hating “reporters” with the far-left, state-owned CBC – Neil Macdonald. Tea party-hater and CBC reporter Neil MacDonald loads a new bullet in the far-left’s “racist dog whistle” magazine. The term “Liberal […]

Militant left-wing BC teachers union advocates against Canada’s military recruiting

Joel JohannesenMath, science, and actively advocating against joining the Canadian military? Well yes, and “man-made global warming,” and business is bad, government is good, and socialism is the way to go, and unions are the best, and its for the kids, etc. Also LGBQT of course — that other stuff is only if there’s time. […]

Headlines moved; accepting columns

Joel JohannesenThe sometimes-snarky headlines that I have been generating here (and for Americans, at BoldColors.net) for the past month or so seem to be going over pretty well, so I’ve moved them to a new site: NewsQuips.ca (and NewsQuips.com for American headlines). Also, I’ve decided to start accepting opinion columns from the public for publication […]

I guess when you’re desperate, you resort to lies and fakery. Hey, CBC?

Joel JohannesenMan that Obama looks like he’s really hot! Look, Martha, he’s wiping his dang brow! Must be that man-made global warming! Or the state-owned, taxpayer-funded CBC “News” just faked you out. Spoiler alert: it’s exactly what you’ve come to expect from the CBC “News.” In this example from one of the state-owned, taxpayer-funded CBC’s […]

NOW the Conservatives want ME to donate to THEM to help THEM hammer the CBC?

Joel JohannesenI have to view this fight between the Conservative government and the state-owned CBC with a little bit of a head-shake. I’ve been harping about the CBC’s anti-conservative bias loudly and publicly and consistently for 15 years. In those 15 years, the CBC has threatened to sue me to kingdom come, threatened to “monitor” […]

UPDATED: Hideous anti-Fox News Channel, liberal bias exposed at National Post

Joel JohannesenUpdated below This is real. This actually happened. No, this isn’t about the far-left CBC, but I do understand the confusion.  Yes, Canada, this is what passes for objective news reporting, today, from what is purportedly a reputable, supposedly neutral or objective, national newspaper. And it’s also an excellent explanation for why the liberal-left […]

Visit everyday and throughout the day to see what we’re reading, and to find out what the main political news thrust of the day is. Headlines […]

Ontario Libs tout giving more cash to auto giants; Progressive Conservatives tout sanity

Joel JohannesenOntario election (and corporate welfare) watch: The auto industry (also known as the corporate welfare industry) Progressive Conservatives tout tax cuts instead of throwing taxpayer cash at them. Liberals tout throwing taxpayer cash at them, so, more government spending and thus higher taxes for all (or as their Globe & Mail division kindly puts […]

It happened while I was eating a sandwich. I’ll remember what I was doing at the time.

Joel JohannesenSo what happened? Where to begin…. It’s a tradition. The only one leftists love. I think it’s also in the constitution. Plus the geniuses at that UN “man-made global warming” department have written a big report signed by 8 cajillion teachers and lawyers, thus ending the debate as the science on this thing is […]

Communist Party of Canada sounds fun! If you’re a commie.

Joel JohannesenGot my regular snail mail from the Communist Party of Canada. It comes from the “Centre for Socialist Education” in Vancouver.  Sort of puts the lie to the socialists’ contention that there’s a big difference between socialism and communism, as the Communists constantly conflate those two words, with “progressive” also thrown in, on an […]

State-owned CBC “news” report on gov wireless ads: full spectrum of BS

Joel JohannesenI love it when the CBC reports news on the Conservative government, because it’s so fanciful and full of color! Not that I’m excusing the government for anything. Or am I being redundant? The state-owned, taxpayer-funded CBC vs the government… progressives and their government and their so-called “corporations” are so confusing. What I mean […]

Liberal Party of Canada now the ABORTION PARTY; JT says candidates MUST embrace abortion.

Joel JohannesenWhat an abomination. The very concept of “liberal” is now unceremoniously aborted from the party, and tossed like garbage into the trash, exactly like so many real life abortions. Abortion opponents not welcome to run for Liberals in 2015, Trudeau says The Canadian Press Published Wednesday, May 7, 2014 3:26PM EDT OTTAWA — Justin […]

“Intolerance is now a vice of the left” – says a liberal media columnist

Joel JohannesenWhen it comes to catching up with the reality on the ground, and admitting their perfidy, it takes the liberal media approximately eight years to catch up. But let’s give credit where it’s due. Margaret Wente, the Globe and Mail’s putative “conservative” columnist, writes up one that is sure to get her petitioned, rebuked, trolled, […]
