Oh, man, this sounds familiar.

Ah, the delight of arguing in bad faith about any issue in general ... we all know someone exactly like this:



It's vacation time so blogging will be light.

Don't hate me because I'm getting out of Ottawa before the Dumbass Convoy shows up for Canada Day ...



 
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a bathing suit and some SPF 75 to pack.

JUXTAPOSE!

Jan 6. commission witness Cassidy Hutchinson -- who testified before the commission, in person, at the Capitol and under oath -- currently having her credibility attacked by others who refuse to appear or who have taken the Fifth 879 times.

Getting really tired of the burning stupid ...

 


If only there were a magic box where one could go and ask questions like "What is mischief?"



If only ...

The Sun's Anthony Furey is the stupidest human being in the universe.

That's it. That's the post.

Submitted without comment.

 


There's stupid, there's really stupid and there's Steve Nixon-level stupid.

 


Well, this looks bad.

 


In light of the above, this will never, ever, ever, ever, ever stop being funny:





Seriously, it will never not be funny.

Yup, I called it ... Tamara Lich might be going back to jail.

It was over a week ago that I (along with others) pointed out that lunatic white nationalist and professional grifter Tamara Lich clearly violated her bail conditions.

Oh, look ... from just yesterday:



Cue the shrieking about fascism. Or censorship. Or Communism. Anything but Lich violating her bail conditions.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh, Lord, the dishonesty:



No, Lich was not arrested for criticizing the government; she was arrested for breaching her explicit and unequivocal bail conditions. What part of that is so difficult to comprehend?

P.S. More of Ezra's lies:



AFTERTHOUGHT: Does anyone else think this is all deliberate, so that Lich can once again play the victim and grift another truckload of cash from decidedly gullible and brain-damaged supporters?

Somebody has mommy issues.

Ex-Rebeler Keean "Beaker" Bexte seriously needs to seek professional help:




All the therapy on the planet is not going to fix whatever is wrong with that boy.

Rudy Giuliani: Snowflake.

Apparently, this is "assault":


Cue the entire right-wing-o-sphere shrieking about the savage, murderous thuggery of Antifa. You know it's coming.

Man, but that is some burning stupid.

Jesus ...



Sure, because getting a vaccination to avoid being a virus-spewing plague rat is just like stripping women of their reproductive rights.

How do these people even dress themselves in the morning without help?

Yeah, this is going to end well.

This is who Pierre Poilievre and Candice Bergen are explicitly and deliberately inviting to Ottawa:



But, sure, this is all about vaccine mandates.

God: The biggest abortionist of them all.

I have opined on this before, but when the religiously devout begin screeching about how God so loves the fetuses, feel free to point out that that very same Christian God, in a fit of pique, sent a worldwide flood to kill virtually every human being on the planet, including pregnant women and, consequently, their unborn children, making the Christian God the most renowned mass murderer of fetuses in the history of the universe.

I'm glad we had this little chat.

Yup, I called it.

And just as I predicted, Rebel News -- which has spent month after month shrieking "FREEDOM!" and insisting that the government has absolutely no right to interfere with the personal health choices of citizens -- is currently creaming itself over the U.S. Supreme Court depriving women of the freedom to make their own health care decisions:



I'm sure you're shocked by the hypocrisy. Or at least a little concerned.

JUXTAPOSE!

Canadian conservatives livid -- LIVID, I TELL YOU!!! -- over government vaccine mandates that infringe on their bodily autonomy currently positively gleeful after Trump-dominated U.S. Supreme Court just stripped 150 million women of their bodily autonomy.

You can't make this stuff up.

P.S. Apparently, this is only the beginning:




I'm sure Democrats will harness their rage to do what they always do -- turn on each other and stab one another in the back.

P.P.S. Apparently, Senator Susan Collins is concerned, verging on disappointed. That is all.

Why James Topp is such a dishonest piece of crap.

James Topp, who claimed to be walking across Canada to protest vaccine mandates, now openly admits that that rationale is absolute bullshit:



Perhaps someone could explain to Topp how democracy and elections work, then tell him to turn around and fuck off home.

Speaking of Fort McMurray ...

It's mildly amusing to watch Rebel News' Ezra Levant still pandering shamelessly to Fort McMurray:




given how he screwed that city out of well over $100,000 in matching Red Cross donations, and one might also remember how Ezra once assured everyone he was organizing a "convoy" to help rebuild Fort Mac from the smoldering ruins:



Whatever happened to that convoy? Enquiring minds want to know.

P.S. A reminder that, with another $157 in the fundraiser, you get the next installment in the ongoing "Chronicles of Ezra," the next one related to Ezra's assurances of matching funds and how that will play into my questioning of Ezra as we prepare for trial.

Dear Ottawa:

When you think back to the three weeks of hell in February involving blaring horns, choking diesel fumes, blocked streets and deranged white nationalists shutting down local businesses and accosting locals simply for wearing masks, keep in mind that it's the Conservative Party of Canada that just invited them back to do it all over again:



The Conservative Party of Canada: Yes, they're just as fucking horrible as you'd heard.

"Heating Up The Capital" Hot Sauce Expo, Ottawa, 2022!

And now, for something completely different ... after the stupid crazy success of last year's hot sauce get-together, there will be another hot sauce expo at the same location in Mountain, Ontario:




One of the driving forces behind this is local lethal sauce maker Haico Krijgsman, who was kind enough to bring back to Ottawa the basket of sauces I won in the raffle last year but left before the winner was announced, so I just ordered tickets to this year's painfest, and you should, too.

Buy local. Always buy local.

BONUS TRACK: I have an unopened bottle of:



I haven't opened it because it scares me.

MORE BONUS: The raffle basket I won was from The Capsaicin Cartel, whose name alone is enough to make one nervous. In particular, I purchased a bottle of the limited edition "Kill Vlad" sauce before it went out of stock. I suffer gladly to this day.

Gaming the system: How Sheila Gunn Reid, Andrew Lawton and Derek Smith write "bestsellers".

UPPITYDATE: If you want to truly appreciate how Ezra Levant has learned how to play the system, I suggest a piece I wrote back here. I won't bother summarizing it; you can figure it out for yourself.

As recently reported, Ezra Levant and the rest of the sub-humans at Rebel News are creaming their Preston Manning Underoos over the stunning rise to #1 prominence of this piece of literary dreck from piece of human dreck Derek Smith:



It's not like the folks at Der Rebel haven't figured out how to game the system, as I have explained on occasion here. And here. And here. And here. I mean, when an execrable human being like Sheila Gunn Reid can get a bestseller while being arguably the shittiest writer in the country, well, you know how seriously to take those rankings, as a recent commenter here at CC HQ explains:

I used to wonder how the truly wretched pustules of anti-culture self-published by the Rebel "writers" and their network managed to achieve apparently legitimate "#1 Best Seller At Amazon" status. Andrew Lawton's "insider account" of the trucker's convoy currently boasts that distinction, and it hasn't even been published yet. However, it was explained to me by an editor friend who helps writers prepare their work for self-publication.

How to have a best seller:

  1. Seek out a category with no other recent publications. Lawton's #1 best seller is in the category "Politics in Government"; the #2 book in that category is an East Indian edition of "The Constitution of Canada", at $1.32, published in 2020. So...not a lot of competition for that number one slot.
  2. Buy a ton of copies to ensure a huge initial spike. This works best if you work for a right wing video group blog like the Rebel or TN, which can make the initial purchase, write it off as a marketing expense, then sell the books through their site (or give them away as promo, prizes, or whatever.)

This spike in rankings obviously lasts until the next publication enters the category - usually a week or so later. Doesn't matter - the author can still claim a #1 Best Seller.

And now you know how even worthless, untalented human wreckage like Derek Smith or Sheila Gunn Reid can slime their way to a "bestseller."

I'm glad we had this little chat.

And already a best-seller, you say?

Unsurprisingly, Rebel News gushingly promotes a piece of literary swill by creepy loonbat Derek Smith entitled "How the Prime Minister Stole Freedom":




I look forward to Smith's subsequent potboilers, "Lock Him Up!" and "Nothing That a Bullet Couldn't Fix".

Chronicles of Twatrick: There are no words ...

I ... um ... wut?



So ... the man who dodged service for years and lied about it, lied to the court about what he promised to do and promised to deliver, was found in contempt of court twice, and filed such an utterly dishonest application that it was dismissed by the court as so "baseless and scandalous" that I was awarded enhanced costs will now ... lecture pompously on the civility and decorum of defendants.

I can't fucking speak.
