Journamalism: White privilege edition.

"You know, we should look into the soul-crushing burdens imposed on wives who end up looking after their husbands who develop Alzheimer's disease ... any suggestions on who would be representative of that tragic demographic?"

"Hey, I know ... what about a wealthy, privileged, well-connected white chick with a lifetime pension who can easily afford to hire personal care assistants, and who has a reputation of being a snotty bitch with no compassion for others, and whose government in which she was a high-profile minister did sweet fuck all for exactly those women for a decade?"

"Awesome! On it."

Tune in next week when English lord Conrad Black discusses the difficulty in getting genuine Panamanian pool cleaners and gardeners in the midst of a global pandemic.

Release the Krakovfefe!


I'll just leave this here ...


JUXTA ... oh, fuck it, Jason Kenney is a despicable pig.


"That's 1-800-Grifters! Call now!"

Apparently, the legal braintrusts over at Rebel News LLC and Laundromat have a spiffy new idea to separate the rubes from their rubles; unsurprisingly, it involves giving them lots and lots of money:

 "Free lawyers?" Wowzers, that sounds awesome, wait a minute ...

Ah, there's the catch ... everyone else will be footing the bill, while Ezra will be taking all the credit. Still, it's a fascinating concept, and I'm sure Ezra and the Ezrettes will be paragons of transparency in publishing full details of all of their donations, and cases accepted, and legal fee receipts and so on. I mean, heaven forfend that Rebel and its shareholders rake in close to a quarter million without explaining where it all went.

I'm sure I'm worried over nothing.

BY THE WAY, is it worth pointing out how this is exactly why Rebel News in no way qualifies as a "media outlet?" One of the most basic obligations of a responsible media outlet is to report the news as it happens; in this case, Rebel News is -- as always -- choosing to insinuate itself into the process and make itself part of the story, for no good reason.

In other words, Rebel News and Ezra are currently asking their gullible, mouth-breathing fans to hand over $200,000 for something that has absolutely nothing to do with actual journalism.

There is simply no educating some people, is there?

Grifters gonna grift.

Oh, *sigh* ...

One wonders if the dimbulbs signing that petition understand that no one at Rebel News gives the slightest fuck about Adam Skelly, and all this is simply in aid of growing Rebel's mailing list.

Canadian conservatives insisting it's not fair to go so far back in history as to blame Brian Mulroney for Canada's lack of vaccine production same whiny, childish assholes still shrieking about how Justin Trudeau once wore blackface in a high school play.

Dear Erin O'Toole: Fuck off, and take Michelle Rempel with you.



Mikhaila Peterson comes to the defense of her sniveling, whiny, pathetic, victimhood-obsessed, narcissistic drug addict of a father by suggesting that crying adults should be fired.

It doesn't get any funnier than that.


BY THE WAY, if you need to know how dreckful is Jordan Peterson's output, this is a delicious evisceration of his execrably awful earlier work, "Maps of Meaning." Enjoy.

Jenna Ellis: Idiot.

This is the level of dumbass stupid we're dealing with with respect to Donald Trump's "elite strike force" legal team:

Fun fact: The Third Circuit does not "grant appeals."

AFTERSNARK: Are we taking bets on when Ellis gets fired by presidential tweet?

How much trouble is Sidney Powell really in?

While most folks are having a good chuckle over ex-Trump mouthpiece and loonbat conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell getting the boot for being too much of a whack job even for Rudy Giuliani, it seems Powell might now be in more than a wee bit of trouble, and here's why. According to Powell's own published statement:

"I agree with the campaign's statement that I am not part of the campaign's legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees."

Um, OK, let's go with that and see where it takes us (and, fair warning, I am not a lawyer so some of this will be speculation).

It's fine if Powell now wants to claim that she's just been helping out on the side, unofficially and all that, but that raises the question -- if she was never officially retained, does solicitor-client privilege still apply? As in, if no one representing Trump or the Trump campaign ever actually hired her, can she claim privilege for any of the conversations she had with any of them? And why would that matter? I'm glad you asked.

If someone wanted to start disbarment proceedings against Powell (and, frankly, no one deserves it more), one would think that it would be delightful to find out that she was legally forced to disclose any and all conversations she had with any of the Trump team. Without solicitor-client privilege, Powell should have no expectation that any of those conversations would be protected, and if one learned that Powell said, in a moment of ostensibly private candor, something like, "Yeah, I know this case is complete rubbish and baseless, but let's do it just to clog the courts and waste time," you know, I'm betting that would go a long way to getting to disbarment.

And if that's not enough, if Powell is now claiming that she was never an official member of the Trump contingent, then there better not be any court filings with her signature on them as if she was. I'm pretty sure courts take a dim view of anyone signing official motions or affidavits, only to later claim, "Oh, I was just a friend helping out." Once again, hello, disbarment.

Powell might be trying to minimize her current embarrassment by insisting she was just being a buddy and helping out on the side all this time, but it seems that taking that stance puts her in a very awkward position, does it not?

Jesus Christ ... it's just grift, plain and simple.

Holy fucking crap ... all that Trump-defending Sidney Powell rubbish? It's simple grift. As with everything else connected to Donald Trump, it's all about the Benjamins.

BONUS TRACK: Every time Sidney Powell opens her festering gob and yammers on about how she has massive, overwhelming, humongous evidence, I am reminded of this.

UPPITY DATE: I'm Sidney Powell; send money.

SERIOUS QUESTION: If, as Powell insists, "I agree with the campaign's statement that I am not part of the campaign's legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees," then does solicitor-client privilege apply?

In case you ever wondered ...

... where the stunning, jaw-dropping, eye-rolling, breathtaking, lunatic, mouth-breathing, batshit fucking crazy comes from ...

I'm glad we had this little chat. 

Dumbassitude for the win!

Because when you're representing the President of the United States in a high-profile legal capacity, this is exactly the kind of impression you want to leave:

BONUS TRACK: If Conrad Black were any further up Donald Trump's anal canal, he'd be fighting for reading room with Ezra Levant:


Watching Donald Trump currently threatening, harassing and intimidating Republicans to overthrow the results of the recent election, and burning American democracy to the ground in the process, one is reminded of when he wanted Hillary Clinton locked up for her emails.

Trump legalist Sidney Powell is an utter imbecile. Here's why.

While everyone is peeing themselves with laughter over Rudy Giuliani's thigh-suckingly deranged, performance art press conference the other day, it seems most folks are overlooking an even more nad-grindingly idiotic presentation by Trump legalist Sidney Powell (Twitter handle @SidneyPowell1), who demonstrated beyond any doubt that she has not the foggiest fucking idea what she is talking about when it comes to computers.

Powell (Twitter handle @SidneyPowell1) can be seen and heard ranting like a loon here on YouTube, and the stunning dumbassitude starts at around 1:30, when Powell (Twitter handle @SidneyPowell1) describes the voting machine in part thusly:

"... one of its most characteristic features [sic] is its ability to 'flip votes.' It can set and run an algorithm that probably ran all over the country to take a certain percentage of votes from President Trump and flip them to President Biden which we might never have uncovered had the votes for President Trump not been so overwhelming in so many of these states that it 'broke the
algorithm' [sic] ...
Pause with me and consider the crippling idiocy of the claim above.

Accept, for the sake of argument, that the voting machines in question had been hacked to, in some way, "flip" a certain number of votes from Trump to Biden. OK, so far, so good. So if this is what was happening, then it logically follows that the total number of votes would have been around the same nationally and, based on the final tally, that number would have been around 150 million or so (give or take a quatloo).

Now, I don't mean to brag, but I've spent a number of years in the IT industry, and I can assure you that, even if you're using legacy 32-bit processors, 150 million is not an unmanageable number, and any decent embedded system would have no trouble dealing with that value. But that's not quite what Powell (Twitter handle @SidneyPowell1) is claiming. No, she is claiming that the number of votes cast for Trump was so "overwhelming" that flipping a bunch of them for Joe Biden somehow "broke the algorithm."

What in the name of Ivanka Trump's cosmetic surgery does that even mean?

I can well imagine that, in a hacked voting machine, one might -- after much investigation -- uncover the nefarious snippet of code "if (some random selection value) { flip Trump vote to Biden vote }" ... OK, fine, that would certainly represent a hacked system. But under what conceivable circumstances would running that statement too many times cause the "algorithm" to "break?"

I have written a great deal of code in my time, and I can assure you that very little of it came with a shelf life such that, after being run too many times, the algorithm would simply throw up its hands and holler, "Fuck it, I can't do this anymore!!" Yet that is exactly what Powell (Twitter handle @SidneyPowell1) is describing here -- that Trump's votes were so "overwhelming" that the poor "algorithm" simply could not process a simple "if" statement anymore, and packed it in.

This is, of course, ridiculous nonsense, and rather than pressing Powell (Twitter handle @SidneyPowell1) for evidence of her idiotic claim (which we all know will not be forthcoming), I suggest it would be far more useful to ask her to simply describe what in the hell she's talking about with respect to some "algorithm" being faced with such an "overwhelming" number of votes that it simply refuses to run anymore, since the claim is utterly absurd on its face.

So if anyone wants to politely and diplomatically put this question to Powell (Twitter handle @SidneyPowell1), let me know how it turns out.

Sincerely yours,

Someone who actually knows how computers work


AFTERSNARK: What a delightfully relevant question:

HOLY CHRIST, but Powell is batshit fucking crazy.

I wouldn't be counting on that cheque. I'm just saying.

Here's Rebel News punching bag and fundraiser fodder David Menzies getting his ass kicked yet again, and promising a quick windfall for whatever stool pigeon squeals:

Except here's what happened the last time Ezra and company promised to compensate the helpful public:

Grifters gonna grift ... and then they're going to stiff you.

AFTERSNARK: Only David Menzies is so intellectually hobbled as to be told to wear a fucking mask, and need to ask for "clarification":

Apparently, treasonous Trump sycophant Emily Murphy is feeling the strain.

Dear Emily Murphy:

AFTERSNARK: Via CNN, we have this gorge-inducing pandering to Murphy:

No, she is not a "consummate professional" -- she is a worthless, unprincipled, partisan hack who should rot in prison for treason.

But that's just me.

Gosh ... anti-Semitic much?

Ah, the depth and nuance of Rebel Media commenters.

While the goose-stepping brownshirts over at Rebel News are currently weeping inconsolably over how mean everyone is to them, it's worth taking a trip down memory lane to refresh our memories of the rancidly toxic atmosphere Ezra Levant created at his combination piece-of-crap media outlet and white hood emporium.

Here's a random sampling of some of the literary gems left by regular commenters at Rebel Media over the years. Enjoy.

But remember, it's a crime against humanity when someone tells Keean Bexte or David Menzies to fuck off, so I guess that makes us even.
