Kellie Leitch's Campaign Becomes Even More Absurd

I wasn't planning to write another post about Kellie Leitch for a while, because I feel I've written enough about her to last me a lifetime.

But then I saw the cover of the latest issue of Macleans and I changed my mind.

Because although that picture is absolutely ridiculous, and has people howling with laughter all over the country. 

And wondering where did she get that flag pole from?

Jason's Kenney and the Last Show in Ottawa

The ghastly show is finally over. After a shabby twenty year run on Parliament Hill Jason Kenney has packed up his harp, and finally left the building.

But not before one last tawdry song.

Jason Kenney delivered a rousing and emotional farewell speech in the House of Commons on Thursday after nearly 20 years as a member of Parliament. He struck a non-partisan tone and urged his colleagues to embrace their role as legislators, not simply as foot soldiers of a political party, and to relish their time in the hallowed halls of Centre Block — "the temple of our democracy," as he described it.

Which couldn't have been more phony or absurd. Kenney the ultimate rabid partisan preaching non partisanship in the "temple of democracy" he desecrated over and over again.

And that wasn't the only scandal...

Standing Up For Our Values In A Bigoted World

I'm really looking forward to this weekend. It's going to be warm and sunny, and perfect for biking, or sailing.

And on Sunday, in this park in my neighbourhood, there is going to be a big book fair with lots of authors and artists. So it couldn't be better, or more lovely Canada.

But I can't forget what's happening to so many people in this nightmare place.

And ever since I found out that Chris Alexander and Kellie Leitch will be reuniting.

I can't help wondering what might have happened to some of the Syrian refugees now living in this peaceful country if the Cons had been re-elected?

Ted Cruz's Hilarious Endorsement of Donald Trump

Let it never be said that Ted Cruz holds a grudge for long. Or that he will let anything get in the way of his feverish desire to be President.

Not even what's left of his dignity, his father's good name, or his wife's honour.

For after having called Donald Trump every dirty word in the book, and claiming he'd have to be a "servile puppy" to endorse him 

Big Ted has rolled over like a lap dog and endorsed him anyway.

The Return of the Monstrous Chris and Kellie Show

The other day I wrote about how Kellie Leitch's "Anti-Canadian Values" campaign had brought back memories of the Chris and Kellie show.

The barbaric Con production where Leitch and Chris Alexander demonized Muslims, and invited Canadians to snitch on their neighbours.

And it was such an ugly memory, I remember thinking thank goodness that show was cancelled, and that those two will never be together again.

But sadly I was wrong. Because it seems that the Chris and Kellie show is on again.

Donald Trump's New and Outrageous Scam

As a Canadian I have always found it hard to understand how Donald Trump has managed to fool so many Americans into believing that he is more than just a grubby Con man.

Its always seemed so obvious to me. I mean look at him. What else could he be?

But now at last that may be changing. 

The media in that country has finally started to take a closer look at Trump, his Empire, and his campaign. 

And revealing him to be a shameless hustler Con man clown.

Bernie Sanders Sets Out To Save Hillary Clinton

As we all know Bernie Sanders was treated unfairly by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party establishment. 

And he has every right to be bitter.

But with the shadow of the fascist Trump looming over America.

Bernie is hitting the campaign trail and urging his supporters to vote for Hillary.

Donald Trump's Hellish Day On the Campaign Trail

As you may know Donald Trump has been trying to reach out to to African American voters, by visiting black churches and asking one wacko preacher after the other to bless him.

But it doesn't seem to be working, with his support still mired in the single digits and falling...

And his visit to a black church in Cleveland yesterday can only drive that support down further.

Because it began weirdly, and ended disastrously.

The Trudeau Summer and the Slow Death of the Cons

It still feels like summer in the place where I live, but fall officially arrives tomorrow.

So I have been spending as much time as I can soaking up every precious ray of sunshine.

And I am finding it very hard to get excited about the return of Parliament.

For just one quick glance at Question Period was enough to send shivers down my back.

Scottish Independence and Some Lessons For Alberta

Last Sunday was the second anniversary of Scotland's independence referendum, which as you may know, was for me a day of great disappointment.

And one I'll always remember.

But I haven't dared even mention the anniversary when talking to my family in the Scottish highlands, because for them it's a day best forgotten.

They don't want to talk about it. It's too traumatic.

And they all voted NO.
