Left-wing government news today: “It’s not looking good.”

Joel Johannesen Thanks to liberals/leftists worldwide, it really isn’t looking good.  We start from the left coast and this Globe & Mail article, and, well, actually we just keep moving left. …“The count came in at the average that we’ve seen over the last 10 years,” Mr. Affleck told reporters. “The mayor made a commitment, […]

Arctic Apple Takes a Bite Out of Pseudo-Science

Mischa Popoff After 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 […]

Sun News Net (compact)

Sun News Network Sets

Joel Johannesen Sun New Network simply went away today. Signed off for good. And I’m not shocked. I am a little forlorn, because now, once again, we have nothing but LIBERALVISION – and worse – to watch, for hard news and talk in Canada. Yeah once again, what we’re left with is utterly terrible news-watching, with that […]

Maclean’s “Reporter” Nancy Macdonald Fry’d; Caught Faking “Racism,” As We Speak

Joel Johannesen Move over Hedy Fry (Liberal MP, Vancouver Center). “As we speak,” the Rogers Cable conglomerate’s Maclean’s magazine division (or is it the liberals’ Maclean’s division – the left is so confusing with their complex corporate and political structures) gets $1.5 MILLION in annual taxpayer subsidies for… things like seemingly faking “news” reports on “racism.” These millions […]

Oh look! The liberal media are being complete idiots again!

Joel Johannesen Some days, the liberals’ mainstream news media division provides us with more than reports of the current events of the day. They provide glimpses of just how callow and idiotic they are. Take today as an example. Today, at least two Canadian – Canadian, mind you – liberal mainstream news outlets, the Globe […]

The state-owned CBC: they’re not like us.

Joel Johannesen Last week, the state-owned (and therefore backward, but we digress) CBC asked its notoriously far-left extremist viewers whether they supported the Harper administration’s plans to combat ISIS terrorists with our air power. Here’s how that went, left – by which we mean look at the graphic at left, in this case. Now… you’ll just have to do as we […]

“Corporate” Sponsorship of Premiers’ (i.e. Government) Conference?

Joel Johannesen The Globe and Mail editorial mocks the notion of private-sector sponsorship of a government conference. Good. They’re right to. But their disdain is not surprising, given the liberal media’s reluctance to embrace anything “corporate” or in any way capitalist. “The Premiers’ conference: And now, a word from our sponsor” Let’s watch how they, […]

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

Joel Johannesen Smear 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 […]

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

Joel Johannesen Math, 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 […]

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

Joel Johannesen I 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 […]

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

Joel Johannesen Ontario 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 […]

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

Joel Johannesen So 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 […]

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

Joel Johannesen Got 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 […]
