Pirates Plundering Canada Thanks to Crazy Voters

Judging by most of his columns, I don’t think National Post columnist Andrew Coyne is a socialist, even by Canadian standards.

Why he voted for the socialists in the last election is anyone’s guess. It seemed to have been promulgated on the same premise many Americans are subscribing to in the U.S. today: both main candidates are so awful they can’t vote for either, so to support democracy, they vote for one of the third-party candidates who have utterly no chance of winning.

Back then he did say on Twitter that he didn’t think either the Grits or the Conservatives deserved it.

The problem with that theory is that unlike America’s ridic Green Party, which polls at roughly 0 to 1 percent, the socialist NDP were doing only too well in the polls in 2015. So it’s a risk Mr. Coyne deemed to be worth taking. Weird for a non-socialist.

Personally, if I couldn’t vote for Trudeau’s Liberal Party (and I couldn’t), or Stephen Harper’s Conservatives (which I happily and correctly did), I’d have voted for the Pirate Party of Canada (actual registered party — look it up, matey) rather than the socialist NDP (which really is a party of actual pirates as far as I can tell. ARrrrrr).

Coyne’s columns are a must-read in Canada no matter how stupidly he votes. Far be it for me to critique his writing. What I can do is critique his voting, because I think the way people in Canada vote is crazy. Andrew Coyne is one of the Captains of the Canadian ship Voter Persuasion.

Today Cpt. Coyne rightly slams the Liberals’ budget mess:

A Liberal spending spree because they want to
National Post, November 2, 2016

[…] The $25-billion deficit now forecast for the current fiscal year may appear to be less than the $29 billion we were told it would be eight months ago, but that is only because the previous estimate was overstated by $6 billion: the amount by which the Liberals sandbagged their revenue estimates, assuming a worst-case scenario for economic growth “for planning purposes” even as they were confidently telling the public the budget would increase it: a half a percentage point this year and a full percentage point the next, thanks to fiscal multipliers that, it was claimed, could reach “between 3 and 4.” (That’s right: your government is currently occupied by people who believe that $1 in government spending can produce $4 in economic growth.) …

Yep there are actually people who think that way. Crazy people. For example, Andrew Coyne’s go-to, the NDP, and all socialists and communists. That is exactly the NDP fiscal policy. Coyne voted for a party “occupied by people who believe that $1 in government spending can produce $4 in economic growth.” That’s literally the Left’s base economic principle. Not just Liberals.

But October of 2015’s voting record is so last year. So let’s go back to 2011, when he voted for… the Liberals!

In 2011, Coyne explained that the economy is the number one issue (“For me there are two issues of overwhelming importance in this election. The first is the economy…”), and asked “…would the Liberals harm the economy more than the Conservatives would?…” and he answered no. He also said:

[…] It’s macroeconomic policy that can really run you onto the rocks: running massive deficits…. Call me naive, but I do not think the Liberals would do either—even in combination with the NDP. If anything, I suspect they would be at pains to prove their fiscal-conservative credentials, for fear of financial markets’ wrath…

Holy wrongness. And if I may be so bold, I’ll go ahead and accept your offer to call you naive.

The Liberals turned further left, the NDP pretended to turn right (but it was a total head-fake), and we’re currently running directly Blackbeardonto the rocks. And again, that’s because that’s the economic principle of the left. “A Liberal spending spree because they want to” is literally what his column today is entitled, and literally how it ends (the column, that is).

…spending is higher, the deficit larger, and the economy weaker than foretold. And each time the uncertainty and doubt around the minister’s figures grow.

What is clear is that for all the billions of dollars in “stimulative” spending the government is frantically pushing out the door, the economy is dawdling along at more or less the same rate it was before, or rather a little slower. And for all Morneau’s jiggery-pokery, the fiscal position is deteriorating at an alarming rate.

The headline deficit numbers tell only part of the tale. The small surpluses the previous government left (and it did: the government is only able to show a deficit of $1 billion for 2015-16 by some truly heroic efforts at backdating spending) have been replaced, not by the two years of $10-billion deficits (max!) promised in the election campaign, but by shortfalls that are now projected to average more than $2 billion over six years, with no end in sight or even promised. …

It’s no coinkydink that “jiggery-pokery” sounds pirate-y. That’s the Liberals’ core, summed-up. But don’t be fooled by the NDP — pace Mr. Coyne’s unfortunate voting decision and certainly like the state-owned (and socialist) CBC was. Here’s how the CBC began an article about the NDP’s 2015 election platform:

…the New Democratic Party is promising four years of balanced budgets in a bid to reassure voters that the party is throwing off its socialist past. …

No, as I said, that was but another “jiggery-pokery,” as people like me knew at the time. They really were playing you for fools. Just review the current big push within the Party to turn hard, hard left — back to their extreme left-wing socialist roots, where big government and big government spending are the order of the day.

The Conservatives weren’t perfect by any means. You could say they were scallywags. But once you’ve gone into battle against the Conservatives and tried both mainstream alternatives, as Mr. Coyne has like Blackbeard who was known for going into battle holding two weapons, and both prove to be a disaster for Canada (real or potential), I’m just wondering if Mr. Coyne would like a do-over and switch to the Pirate Party. It’s less crazy.

Or just take the least risk and vote conservative next time. Because yo-ho-ho!: “A Liberal spending spree because they want to” be how thee good galleon Canada will end up on thee rocks, buccaneers.

Update on Liberals’ War on Women & Truth: Liberal Senator in Alleged Sexual Harassment.

Maybe it doesn’t make sense. But when you think of Liberal senator Colin Kenny, who is now facing a sexual harassment complaint, weirdly, sexual harassment is the first thing that comes to mind. It shouldn’t be.

Harassment at the RCMP: Sex is Just the Tip of the Iceberg.

by Colin Kenny
August 2013

Sex gets the headlines. So when Canadians think about harassment at the RCMP, sexual harassment is the first thing that comes to mind. It shouldn’t be.

No question, sexual harassment is a problem within the RCMP. But when it comes to harassment, sex is only the tip of the iceberg.

Female members are prime targets in all these categories, which isn’t exactly surprising, given the RCMP’s long-standing macho culture.

[…]

Unwanted sexual advances? They’re bad – terrible, really. But so is all this other crap that bubbles up from one common sinkhole – an institutional lack of respect. …

Colin_Kenny-2013-11-22_115422

Allegations against him are just that, at this point  — allegations. He has not been charged by police. This could all be bogus, and actually, given the level of idiocy that liberals and progressives generally have inspired among their “feminist” division, I assume it is until I hear otherwise (and I won’t be relying on the progressives’ liberal media division for the news).

This article of his was posted at his web site and remains today. It was also published in several newspapers.

  • Ottawa Citizen – August 1, 2012
  • Calgary Herald – August 2, 2012
  • The Province – August 3, 2012
  • Victoria Times-Colonist – August 4, 2012

More to the point, it was written just before Kenny’s female senate employee had gone to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s office to advise the Liberal leader about 20131122-103927-gthe alleged harassment. And it was written after other sexual misconduct allegations have been made over the years, including serious sexual allegations made by an employee of Kenny’s tanning salon, and two complaints made by women while working within the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

Remember hearing about all that? Yeah, me neither.

What’s also hard to make sense of, though is, well, lots of things. First, the Liberal leader, Justin “I demand Transparency!” Trudeau said nothing about it back in August when the complainant first made her allegations; and apparently the Libs did nothing about it, and certainly didn’t inform Canadians.

Since nothing was being done about it, the senate employee had to go back to the Liberal leader’s office and complain again a couple of months later, in October.

And then still nothing was done with Kenny, and nothing was said about it to Canadians. Certainly nothing was reported in the liberal media division, anyway. I honestly don’t know what the media knew. I’m smart enough to not trust them.

It was only yesterday, Thursday November 21, 2013, that the Liberal senator left the liberal caucus.tanning-salon-1 You may not have even heard about this, because the Liberal Party’s news media division is keeping a very tight lid on it. I’ve been watching their state-owned CBC division all day, and while the CBC spends a huge amount of time on the Conservative senate scandal, they’ve said nothing on the Liberal sexual harassment complaint.  Right now they’re reviewing a “film” on the news channel (it’s a “Low-key drama about three generations of Cree,” so thank God we’re fully informed).

Apparently Trudeau was informed just yesterday that Kenny was withdrawing from the caucus  —  effective November 13.  Eight days ago? Why that date? Is that when the investigations started? Moreover, then, this happened over a week ago without Trudeau  —  or his news media acolytes  —  knowing about it? Huh? They expect me and you to believe that? How insulting.

That lack of transparency  —  and let’s call a spade a spade: it’s a cover-up  —  is pretty big news in and of itself. It’s also not just simple hypocrisy. It’s the liberals who declare ownership of the women’s vote. Or is it that they declare ownership of women? Given stories like this, I’m never sure. And its liberals who pretend there’s a conservative “war on women.”

This is hypocrisy, deep-fried, on a stick.

So while Trudeau and all the Liberals and all the liberal media were blasting the Conservatives for its senate scandal up to and including today, the Liberals and their cabal were mum about this alleged sexual harassment scandal of their own. Didn’t even tell Canadians there was a problem.

What’s even harder to make sense of is that the self-described objective and honest liberal media, has, for the past number of weeks, been engaged in an investigation and speculation “surge” of historic, epic proportions, regarding the Conservatives’ senate scandal  —  questioning and writing-up and opining and Tweeting like never before. Well OK, at least not since their “reporting” about Conservative abortion policy, and the liberal media’s infamous and cult-like “Conservative hidden agenda” hoax. Yet they haven’t managed to uncover one single thing about this alleged sex scandal, in months?

Hard to believe. Really hard to make sense of any of this.

Extra! Extra!

I saw lots of tweets on my Twitter feed today about this mocking CBC’s “Kady” for holding back her usual too clever by half, passive-aggressive Twittersnark, in this one Colin Kenny scandal instance. She feigned shock and surprise, but ultimately retweeted another CBC reporter’s tweet, who’d thrown up a story earlier today which compiles all the many allegations of sexual harassment against Liberal Senator Colin Kenny in one neat package. Phew. Dodged a bullet there, huh CBC? Now you can say y’all “covered it.”

But then “Kady” finally had a bit of a meltdown, claiming, all at once, she’s done (“Fini”!) with questions pointed at her for not asking asking normal reporter questions, or actually reporting, almost like she forgot it’s her job to also report on LIBERAL scandals too. And also, yeah, she said she didn’t know nuttin’.

(Note that she’s so unfamiliar with the Kenny story that she can’t even spell Kenny.)

National Post’s and Postmedia’s liberal columnist and media club member Andrew Coyne (whom CNN recently described as “Andrew Coyle” from “Nationalmedia”) rushed to her defense with this we’re all in this together, and I’ve got your back, liberal media group-hug hilarity:

I’m old enough to remember when Liberals Jean Chretien and Paul Martin didn’t know nuttin’ about their adscam sponsorship scandals.

By the way, it all makes sense. I’m just playing with you.

Justin Trudeau thinks only Quebecers can run Canada properly; Canada belongs to Quebec!

Sun News busts out another of the Liberal-exposing stories that matter to Canadians this week, forcing the liberal-luvin’ Canadian lamestream media to once again — very reluctantly and begrudgingly — follow their lead. Well, “follow their lead” with copious whitewashing, and excuses, and those ever-important “context” filters applied. Sort of like how the state-owned CBC treated Sarah Palin, (as in when Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head: “Many people say that Sarah Palin … must share part of the BLAME!”), only exactly the opposite in every which way.

Justin Trudeau:

“Canada isn’t doing well right now because it’s Albertans who control our community and socio-democratic agenda. It doesn’t work.”

Then he was asked if Canada was “better served when there are more Quebecers in charge than Albertans?”

 “I’m a Liberal, so of course I think so, yes. Certainly when we look at the great prime ministers of the 20th century, those that really stood the test of time, they were MPs from Quebec… This country – Canada – it belongs to us.”

In sane-ville, this absolutely kills one’s chances of winning the leadership of any national political party, in this case Trudeau’s pursuit of the Liberal Party; and obviously his chances of being the leader of my country would now be construed as a joke. And in fact the whole party has sufficiently revealed itself this week, as if it hadn’t already, as being a party of elitist Ontario and Quebec-centric asses.

And at the very least, this would obviate his immediate resignation as an MP.

But then the media is only just now coming to his and their rescue. By the time they’re done, you won’t even recognize this story.

But at least this gives me the opportunity to once again trot out my old Justin Trudeau is so Groovy video!
