Arctic Apple Takes a Bite Out of Pseudo-Science

Mischa PopoffAfter years of research and extensive field testing, the Okanagan’s own GMO apple is going to the big leagues. Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are routinely attacked by urban organic activists in spite of the fact that not a single ailment has ever been linked to this technology. And now, as a testament to the baselessness of […]

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. […]

What’s Zulu for “complete government bullcrap?”

Joel JohannesenOK watch out for an air-quote festival, I’m addressing another government waste-a-thon. So you understand. Without even fully delving into the obvious, gross misuse of taxpayer funds that is self-important government “officials” taking their spouses on “business” trips, why did government “officials” even have to go to a “parliamentary” conference in South Africa at […]

When government deems a park as sacred and organizes a “pilgrimage?” Tweet Poo!

Joel JohannesenTotal confusion! The upcoming “Earth Day” (barf) promises lots of pure, natural, “organic,” un-man-made, Earthy stuff to do. If, that is, as a normal person, you can ignore the left-wing aura that envelopes the obviously politically tainted “Earth Day.” For example, you could do like the Muslims do when they embark on their sacred […]

Just what kind of “environmental justice” is raw sewage being dumped by our huge nanny-state government?

Joel JohannesenHey producers at, oh, for example, CTV News!  I have this story of “environmental crime” that I want to pitch to you. A pipeline spilled 3,000 barrels into some of the most pristine waters and the beaches off of the iconic Stanley Park in Vancouver!  Go crazy! Today I happened to stumble onto a […]

BC nanny-state may allow citizens to do grownup things soon.

Joel JohannesenI’ll believe it when I see it, but the progressive-left liberal BC Liberal government is setting the stage for allowing citizens to buy consumer products like liquor in regular stores, almost like the free world grownups down south and to our east in Alberta do. The progressive BC Liberals aren’t making this move on […]

The Province Misleads on Purpose

Irony: the Province newspaper misleads readers on senate scandal with fake photo

Joel JohannesenThe irony of this terrible reporting obviously flies right over their heads, at the Postmedia-owned Province newspaper in Vancouver. Even while reporting about the senate scandal, in which we normal citizens and all responsible media lament the fact that nobody knows who to believe (Harper or Duffy…), on account of there being so many […]

Liberal Media “Arts” Reporter Should “Shut Up And…”, well, just shut up.

Joel JohannesenReading any of the mainstream liberal-left progressive newspapers, the one thing that will strike you aside from their liberal-left advocacy and bigotry against the conservative or traditional right, is that they will bend over backward, do multiple back-flips, leapfrog over logic and common sense, do multiple re-writes, strain credulity, and even make a total […]

Ford: taxpayers being played is job one?

Joel JohannesenEven as I write this post (Thursday afternoon) about a couple of different examples of the failures of corporate welfare and crony capitalism that came across my desk, Sun News Network is broadcasting a report about… the failures of corporate welfare and crony capitalism. It seems we need a team approach to keeping up […]

In BC: Bikers join Washington DC 9/11 Bikers Honoring 9/11 heroes

Joel JohannesenI’ve been watching the 9/11 memorials all over the U.S. today. Very moving. But I got a kick out of the item called ‘2 Million Bikers’ turnout blows away ‘handful’ at ‘Million Muslim’ gathering in DC [pics, video].   Twitchy featured the tweeters’ pictures of the massive bike-in, along with a couple taken at the so-called […]

Socialism update: NDP-affiliated union demands state-owned cell-phone “company”

Joel JohannesenSocialists, liberals, and other progressives are sure to love the latest demand from one of the far-left, socialist labor unions in Canada.  The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP) is calling on the Harper government to establish another “crown corporation”  —  yet another expansion of the government  —  to compete against the […]

Example of typical liberal media “news” report: “It’s even more bad news!!”

Joel JohannesenIn today’s news across Canada, we find that there are sensible Canadians responding to the left-wing progressive-advocating media’s advocacy  —  in the papers’ own comments sections! It’s what makes Wednesdays tolerable for me. Well that and Bill O’Reilly & Dennis Miller’s segment on Fox News Channel’s O’Reilly Factor. (My two examples of sanity will […]

BC’s Chinese Communist Party-linked NDP candidate loses to normal candidate

Joel JohannesenBC Election 2013 result: socialists of the NDP lose to less socialist BC Liberals Last week before the BC election I wrote about a Chinese Communist Party-linked NDP candidate, which the NDP leader Adrian Dix embraced even after discovering that star candidate of his in the huge Richmond Centre riding had Chinese Communist Party […]
