How fucking useless is Sheila Gunn Reid?

Ah, yes, I remember the days when Sheila was creaming her Stephen Harper-embossed thong underwear over the Republican-driven victory over COVID-19 in Florida:

So, Sheila ... how's that victory lap looking these days? Well, fuck ...

I'm glad we had this little chat.

Chronicles of Twatrick: Moving to B.C. is not going to help.

Given that bankruptcy is administered by a federal department out of Ottawa, moving to B.C. is not really going to help Lloydminster's Patrick Ross:

And come January, that department is going to want to have a chat with Patrick. Count on it.

Chronicles of Twatrick: It's clobberin' time.

Regular readers of this forum might recall that, pursuant to my collection enforcement filing against Lloydminster's Patrick Ross, the Saskatchewan sheriffs have already taken into custody some $7,500, representing various cost awards levied against Patrick (some of which go back many years). But the obvious question is -- if the sheriffs managed to find enough to resolve the outstanding cost awards, why did they not just keep going to satisfy my $100K+ defamation judgment against Patrick?

The answer is actually simple -- they had not yet received that paperwork.

That is, the filings for the cost awards went in some time back, while the filing to collect for the judgment itself was submitted afterwards and took its time getting through the system, but it finally showed up, and Saskatchewan sheriffs have confirmed receipt which means that, come the new year after everyone there is back from holidays, SK sheriffs will go hunting for some $109,000 (judgment, plus interest, plus service charges for sheriffs' work in enforcing the filing).

So everything is under control, and shit should begin to happen in early January.

I'll keep you posted.

P.S. If Patrick thinks he's going to continue to harass people with meritless lawsuits, I suspect he's going to have his hands full dealing with Canada's federal Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, who have reportedly not heard from him since 2015 and would like to know why he has not been honouring his legal obligations under the bankruptcy regime for the last several years.

Rebel News: Money well spent, I'm sure.

In the midst of Rebel News' Ezra Levant's latest grievance-based fundraiser to buy him a building using other peoples' money, it seems that very few people are asking: Where went all the money donated to "Fight the Fines" and other idiotic causes? And rather than ask that question in general, let's pick on precisely two of Rebel's moneymakers, and ask whether this could have been money better invested.

The first examination will be of the ubiquitous "Save Artur" campaign, wherein Rebel News appears to have raised well in excess of one million dollars exclusively for the legal defense of professional victim "Pastor" Artur Pawlowski, whose crime was to ... get fined for violating pandemic lockdown restrictions.

That's it. Nothing more.

In short, more than a cool million has been collected and disbursed in order to aggressively defend someone who could have avoided all of this by just obeying the same lockdown regulations that everyone was obeying. Which leads one to wonder ... could that million-plus have been better spent elsewhere? Perhaps on a down payment on a commercial property?

The second curious example I have written about before is Ezra Levant's insistence that he is going to spend over $300,000 (of other peoples' money, naturally) to fight a total of ... $3,000 in fines for election spending violations. I am not making this up:

So, just to be clear, Ezra Levant and/or Rebel News have pulled in what appears to be a cool mil and a half, and are determined to spend all of it because a) one guy didn't feel like limiting his public gatherings, and b) Ezra doesn't feel like paying $3,000 in totally justified fines.

So here's my question to all of Ezra's inevitable donors to buy him a building: Are you not getting tired of paying all of Ezra's bills, particularly when you see how much money is rolling into Rebel News, and having absolutely no idea where any of it is going?

Are you not getting tired of doing things like paying off Rebel's previous $380,000 bank loan, and buying his interns expensive computers, and now flat-out buying him a building, when it seems like he never puts in any of his own money?

And are you not just the slightest bit irked to realize that Ezra is pouring what appears to be millions into ridiculously trivial legal cases, when all that money could have probably bought him a commercial property outright?

And yet, in the end, dear donors, you will end up buying Ezra a building, because it's what you do. You really are that stupid.

BOUNTY, ANYONE? Anonymous correspondent suggests someone should offer a monetary bounty for a full, unredacted copy of Ezra's RBC mortgage application. That is an evil idea. I love it.


  • Ezra Levant: "With respect to vaccine mandates, how dare anyone tell businesses who they can choose to serve?"
  • Also Ezra Levant: "With respect to commercial mortgages, how dare businesses presume to decide who they can choose to serve?" 

Are we done here? I think we're done here.

The Kabuki Theatre that is Rebel News.

In the midst of the latest spectacular grift coming out of Rebel News, there is an oddity that no one seems to be addressing -- that Rebel's Ezra Levant has audio recordings of RBC officials even before the bank turned down his mortgage application.

Who the fuck does that?

Who the fuck has the foresight to start recording even the initial negotiations for a commercial mortgage application, unless one already knows how it's going to end, and wants all the evidence to run yet another mind-numbing grift?

In the end, it doesn't matter. In the end, Ezra is going to empty the pockets of his mentally-deficient groupies and will end up owning an entire commercial property, purchased entirely with other peoples' money. It remains to be seen only how Ezra:
  • writes it all off as a massive tax deduction, and
  • gets The Democracy Fund to issue charitable tax receipts to all of those donors
Give Ezra credit ... he's very, very good at what he does. And never with his own money.

I love my commenters.

Minor aesthetic edits:

Not to keep belabouring the same point, but not only would an investment in Ezra's Nazipalooza Centre make no business sense from an investment perspective, it would link RBC visibly with one of the most toxic brands in the country.

While I take corporate commitments to social causes with a grain of salt, RBC has been very aggressive in its pursuit of the Indigenous market, which represents many billions of dollars in Claims Settlements, land title, resource revenue sharing agreements, joint ventures, and other direct and indirect investments. 
Given the Rebel's long standing contempt for and mockery of various claims groups, Indigenous title and treaty rights, federal programs to address poverty and water issues, and particularly its downplaying of the residential schools issue, there is simply no way that the Indigenous shareholders, board members and major clients would sit still for an RBC-funded FuhrerBunker in Calgary.

Ditto any Muslim shareholders or clients.

Ditto any immigrant shareholders or clients.

Ditto any shareholders, clients or directors with any sort of environmental concerns.

Given that, for its entire lifespan, the Rebel hasn't managed to attract one single prominent advertiser or sponsor willing to associate itself with the reeking Rebel brand, why on earth does Ezra expect RBC to do it now???



"Heavily subsidized and protected by taxpayers."


Now do Alberta's oil industry.

BONUS TRACK: Quite the thread here.

I'm sure this will end well.

This is Rebel News' Ezra Levant, reacting maturely to a rejected mortgage application by openly and publicly identifying the bank officer involved, because Ezra openly and publicly identifying someone on social media has never ended badly.

Surely a $5,000 bounty can't be far behind. Let's watch.

JUXTAPOSE! Canada's self-described champion of freedom, liberty, liberty and freedom will now shriek in outrage over the freedom of a corporation to deal with whoever they please.

P.S. I'm fascinated by how Ezra apparently made no attempt to get a mortgage through another bank; rather, he went straight to panhandling. It's almost as if he knew what the result of this choreography was going to be.

But that's just a guess.

Chronicles of Twatrick: If Patrick thought 2021 was rough ...

While there have been no tangible developments over the holidays, it's worth mentioning in passing that if Lloydminster's village buffoon and most famous undischarged bankrupt Patrick Ross thought 2021 was a tough year, he might want to buckle up for 2022 as he's about to experience a whole new level of pain, of which I will provide just one example.

I (and others) have now filed official complaints with the federal Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy (OSB) and, come the new year, Patrick is going to learn the hard way how little a sense of humour those people have with respect to bankrupts who so blithely and casually neglect to honour their legal obligations under the bankruptcy regime. But first ... an important side note.

Even though I have had Patrick removed from the protection of bankruptcy and am currently enforcing collection proceedings against him, that does not change the fact that he is still an undischarged bankrupt. What this means is that, even as I will be taking everything he owns for the foreseeable future, he is still technically a bankrupt and, therefore, still legally required to abide by the very strict and unforgiving requirements of Canada's bankruptcy laws ... which is exactly why 2022 is going to be monstrously unpleasant for Patrick.

I refer to the lengthy list of duties here, and in particular to two obligations that Patrick has so dismissively ignored for the last several years.

First, there's this one:

(n.1) inform the trustee of any material change in the bankrupt’s financial situation;

Yeah, I think it's safe to say, Patrick has not done that; in fact, I have been informed that Patrick has not reported in and updated his file (as he is legally required to) since 2015, which is a massive no-no given that any favourable change in a bankrupt's financial status is to not only be reported to his trustee, but any additional assets are to be turned over to said trustee for distribution to the creditors (that is, me). So Patrick is already in a world of trouble for ignoring his duties for the last several years and concealing his income and acquired assets all those years.

But it gets worse when one reads this obligation of Patrick's a bit further down the list (emphasis added):

(p) until his application for discharge has been disposed of and the administration of the estate completed, keep the trustee advised at all times of his place of residence or address.

Oh, yeah, this is where the OSB is going to drop a fucking house on Patrick, given that he has deliberately concealed his location recently for the sole purpose of being able to avoid legal service.

On top of all this, I'm reasonably sure that the OSB -- when it gets ahold of Patrick -- is also going to have words with him about his inability to file any legal actions of any kind, and his years of ignoring the financial obligations of his 2014 Conditional Discharge Order can apparently result in significant monetary penalties (and when I say "significant," I've heard rumours of tens of thousands of dollars, given the length of Patrick's non-compliance).

Quite simply, I am not playing nice anymore. I've tried to do this amicably, and it was a waste of time, so even as I continue to take everything Patrick owns, I am now going to get the OSB involved, and I can assure you they take stuff like this very, very seriously. In short, 2022 for Patrick is going to be a combination of:

  • My forcibly collecting the $100K+ that Patrick owes me,
  • Patrick fending off an order to dismiss from one Peter Skinner, which could very well end up with Patrick hit with a significant cost award, as well as being declared a "vexatious litigant", and
  • the OSB charging Patrick with numerous violations of OSB obligations, possibly resulting in massive financial penalties, and also making sure he understands he doesn't have a fucking leg to stand on when it comes to his relentless threats to sue anyone and everyone.

No more Mr. Nice Guy. And if Patrick's idiot family wants to get involved, then I'll be happy to take all their shit, too.

I am so done playing around. Now it's clobbering time.

THE BANKRUPTCY OF STEVEN SINDACO: If you need more evidence of the severity of Patrick's imminent problems, I give you a 2003 BCSC ruling in the bankruptcy of Steven Sindaco. Long story short, after declaring bankruptcy, Sindaco got a ridiculously favourable conditional discharge order -- just pay $2,500 and he was out of bankruptcy, free and clear. He failed to comply (sound familiar?), at which time his trustee gave up on him and discharged himself, leaving Sindaco as an undischarged bankrupt without a trustee (again, sounding familiar?).

Fast forward to Sindaco winning $500,000 in the lottery, at which time he returned to the trustee and graciously offered to pay off the paltry CDO of $2,500. Not so fast, said a judge, pointing out that, under bankruptcy laws,

(1)  The property of a bankrupt divisible among his creditors ... shall comprise ...

(c)  all property wherever situated of the bankrupt at the date of his bankruptcy or that may be acquired by or devolved on him before his discharge

Let me translate that for you: If you're still an undischarged bankrupt and you get any sort of financial windfall (money, assets, property, inheritance, whatever), then your creditors get to share in the spoils, above and beyond the CDO, up to the extent of paying those creditors their entire original claim on you.

And now you see Patrick's problem. Once the OSB gets ahold of him, they will absolutely require that he bring his file up to date, including declaring all income and assets he has acquired since declaring bankruptcy in 2012. And once Patrick is forced to disclose all of that to the OSB, it immediately devolves to me.

Now you see what I mean by not playing nice anymore.

IF PATRICK IS PLAYING GAMES WITH THE OSB, that is going to end very badly for him, and here's just one way that might happen:

What the above means is that if Patrick acquired an asset of any kind (inheritance, property, cash gift, etc.), then simply signed it over to a relative for next to nothing, that would be considered a "transfer at undervalue," and can be reversed by the OSB. And note well -- if that transfer was to someone "not at arm's length" (like a close relative), the OSB is entitled to go back up to five years before the initial bankruptcy event, which means that if Patrick tried to divest himself of assets in the couple of years before his filing for bankruptcy in December of 2012, the OSB has every right to reverse that transfer, whereupon I get to take those assets.

No more Mr. Nice Guy.

BONUS TRACK: In case you really want to know how much trouble Patrick might be in, know that certain violations of bankruptcy opens one up to criminal charges. Yes, criminal charges:

And what are some of those potentially criminal offences?

Note well the possible offence, "Fraudulently disposes of property before or after the bankruptcy," which I'm pretty sure covers the action of quietly signing over personal assets to others in order to conceal them from the OSB and creditors. In any event, feel free to peruse the case studies, to see if Patrick falls into any of those categories. Oh, and if any of Patrick's relatives assisted in any of the above, I will insist they be similarly charged.

I am so fucking done with this asshole.

No more Mr. Nice Guy.

How Ezra Levant's bounty on doctors could end very, very badly.

Having been absolutely excoriated for his public $5,000 bounty on health care professionals, Rebel News' Ezra Levant does what he always does -- he doubles down on the stupid and blathers on, justifying his incredibly stupid idea:

This rule-following stuff? This lockdown stuff? This privacy-invading stuff? It’s just for you.

Being checked up on — it’s just for you.

And the moment anyone dares to ask the ruling class if they’re compliant? Holy hell.

They’re just not used to it, I guess. That’s what happens when 99 per cent of Canadian journalists are on Trudeau’s payroll, I guess. 

So is it actually fair to check whether the doctors who are advising on or setting public lockdown policy are following their own rules? You know, maybe it is, and if Ezra wants to offer thousands of dollars for evidence that that's happening, that might be typically sleazy and classless of him but, in the end, would it be newsworthy? Perhaps ... but here's the question I don't see anyone asking: What if someone provides alleged footage of that, hands it to Ezra, collects the bounty, and Ezra publishes it ... and it turns out to be completely wrong, thereby opening up several people to a massive lawsuit of harassment, invasion of privacy and malicious defamation?

Here, let me give you an example.

Let's imagine one of the Ezra's dimbulb followers decides to try to collect that bounty, so he parks himself across the road from said doctor's residence, and begins filming, hoping to catch said doctor allowing more than, say, the limit of 10 people inside for a holiday party. Dimbulb follower (let's call him "Adam" for the hell of it) waits patiently until, here we go, three people come walking around the nearest corner, up to the house, up the sidewalk and ring the doorbell, whereupon they are invited in, and the door closes.

"Awesome," thinks Adam, "that's three," carefully making notes. And another half hour passes, whereupon two cars pull up and unload -- four people from each car, total of eight -- all of whom similarly enter the front door of the house, to the sound of holiday revelry inside. "Bingo!", thinks Adam, with the damning lockdown-violating footage that he promptly emails to Rebel News, which is just as promptly published with a suitably damning headline, resulting in the doctor being on the receiving end of harassment, insults and the occasional death threat ... all based on a mistake ...

... because imagine that the first three people arrived on foot from around the corner because they had parked in the alley behind the house, and were just there to collect the snowblower they had purchased on Kijiji, whereupon they simply wandered through the house to the back door, then out to the garage where they bundled their new snowblower onto the back of a pickup truck and drove off, totally out of sight of the snitch waiting out front in the street.


And is this scenario that hard to believe? The "journalists" at Der Rebel already have a reputation as being pathetically sloppy in terms of confirmation and corroboration; imagine, then, the screaming incompetence of Rebel News' faithful followers, who are guaranteed to fuck up almost everything they touch, and it would surprise absolutely no one if they made a total mess of something like surveillance, thereby inspiring Rebel News to publish a wildly inaccurate and defamatory article.

It would be easy enough for someone with legitimate journalistic skills to screw up something like this; to count on the accuracy of someone who reads Rebel News on a regular basis to get something like this correct is really asking for a fucking holiday miracle.

Kanienkehaka: I love my commenters.

Even though this is a recent comment here at CC HQ, I was so transfixed by it that I'm boosting it. Enjoy. (Aesthetic editing added.)

How badly does the Rebel fail as a "journalism" shop?

I once participated in an extraordinary year-long project with the goal of creating a national news service for a cultural group whose stories were simply not being told by other media. Advisors and contributors to the project included some of the best known journalists and producers in Canada, but their role was input and commentary only. The project, and the design of the service itself, was spearheaded by a brilliant Kanienkehaka journalist and a team of Indigenous reporters, playwrights, writers, artists and editors. The challenge they set themselves was to identify what aspects of Western/mainstream "journalism" had relevance and value in an Indigenous context, what other values should inform a news service, and how could a service be structured to reflect those principles.

I bring this up because that year was essentially about stripping the concept of "journalism" down to its absolute essential core, without the dross and drama they teach in J-school. And the essentials were pretty strong.

  • You had to tell the truth. No post-modern nonsense about "what is 'true'" allowed.
  • You had to correct any error as soon as it was detected, and draw the audience's attention to the correction.
  • You had to use reliable, named sources, and you had to corroborate their story. If you couldn't the story didn't run.
  • You had make a clear and constant distinction between journalism (here's what happened), editorial content (here's how we interpret what happened), and commercial content (someone is paying to use our platform to sell you a product or message. Here's who it is.)
  • You had to provide the opportunity for the "other side" of any story to respond, ideally within the same story, or, if later, in a story of equal prominence.
  • Any conflict of interest - family, political, economic - was to be avoided and, if unavoidable, disclosed. Actual sources of all funds will be disclosed.
  • The broadcaster's commitment to those standards needs to be explicit, accessible to everyone, and constantly monitored internally for compliance. Clear channels for complaints about failure to meet those standards will be advertised to the audience.

Those are the principles that distinguish actual journalism from the propaganda practiced by state broadcasters in totalitarian regimes, or by paid advertorial writers for specific industries or political interests masquerading as reporters. And those are the principles that Ezra and the Rebel violate Every. Single. Day.

Sorry to be so long winded about this, but it's a useful exercise to reflect on exactly WHY the Rebel is such a cancer. Because Ezra has neither the interest, the integrity or the capacity to meet those standards, his fallback position is to deride them, and consequently to convince his audience and the stupider members of his team that (a) those concepts don't matter, and (b) nobody pays attention to that stuff anyway.

Can a recommendation for drinking bleach be far behind?

This is Rebel News' Ezra Levant, literally defending the use of a livestock dewormer for the treatment of COVID-19:

I wish I could say I was surprised but ... not really.

In case you needed reminding ...

Since it's the holiday season, It's worth pointing out that the best evidence that Rebel News' Ezra Levant is a valueless, meritless, utterly irredeemable piece of human refuse and raging dumpster fire of a human being is that he absolutely idolizes both Donald Trump and Conrad Black:

There is no coming back from that level of indescribable assholishness.

Ezra Levant: The lying continues.

Fresh off publicly announcing monetary "bounties" on health care professionals, Rebel News' Ezra Levant is doubling down on the rationale for doing it but, in addition, Ezra subsequently posted one of the most curious (and rancidly dishonest) defenses of his douchebaggery. I give you (emphasis tail-waggingly added):

This is, of course, absolute rubbish as -- over the years -- Ezra has used his bully pulpit and his racist, misogynistic troupe of flying monkeys to attack and encourage the harassment of perfectly private citizens on a number of occasions, of which I will gift you with just one:

Predictably, Ezra could not let pass the opportunity to slime and mock and demean a mother who simply wanted to take her 7-year-old son to see the Prime Minister:

Exactly as he wished, Ezra's troglodyte followers wasted no time in getting the message and piling on:

So, no ... Ezra does not respect any sort of private/public boundaries when he decides that someone he disagrees with (or just wants to mock for the entertainment value) needs a good dose of online abuse, harassment and/or death threats. He simply points in the general direction, and his online gang of mouth-breathing bullies does the rest, whereupon Ezra sits back and smirks, "Hey, I never told anyone to do anything," knowing full well that's exactly what he was suggesting.

I have other examples if it becomes necessary.

Rebel News' Ezra Levant, who has fashioned an entire career from shameless panhandling, will now mock someone for an alleged money-making scheme:

You can't make this stuff up. You just can't.

Friday, December 24, 2021

Good riddance to execrable rubbish.

Ted Byfield: Not dead enough.


Ezra Levant, and the consequences of his actions.

There are so, so many things that can be said about Rebel News' Ezra Levant's truly creepy recent cash bounty on medical professionals (all of which we will get to in good time), but one of the interesting developments is the miniscule group of dimbulbs defending Levant's creepiness by insisting that the bounty is only for proof of misbehaviour or malfeasance, or some such lame ass justification; I mean, after all, he's not actually asking people to go out and assault or kill anyone, so we're all good here, right? Right?

Apparently, these people are unaware of the consequences of relentlessly bad-mouthing and demeaning and denigrating someone publicly, given that the occasional person might, you know, get the wrong idea and decide to take things into their own hands.

I suggest that, if you don't understand of what I speak, you go read this, and then read this, then come back and argue that a constant drumbeat of public criticism might not end really, really badly.

And if Ezra wants to argue that he's not responsible for any deranged misinterpretation of his "bounties," well, I have bad news for him, but that can wait for another post.

Thanks for stopping by.

BONUS TRACK: I was going to save this for a subsequent post, but I think this is important enough to get out now, so pay attention because I think this is critical.

A number of truly stupid people are currently defending Ezra Levant's bounty on some health care professionals because, technically, he's not explicitly calling for physical violence. Their argument is that Ezra is perfectly within his rights to mock and insult and denigrate these people by name, as long as he stops short of a suggestion of actual violence, and if any of Ezra's loyal acolytes takes it into his (or her) hands to misinterpret Ezra's public denunciation of these people, well, he can't be held responsible for the actions of others, right? Right?

An interesting proposition, since it flies directly in the face of Ezra's own position when it comes to blaming Justin Trudeau personally for the RCMP's recent beatdown of professional victim David Menzies, of which Ezra wrote:

Go back and read that again if you missed the significance of it the first time. That would be Ezra Levant, explicitly and quite publicly taking the position that, if the Prime Minister constantly and relentlessly excoriates Rebel News, and some of his staff eventually "get the message" and take matters into their own hands to the point of physical violence, then Trudeau is ultimately responsible. Which seems to me to be a really unwise position for Ezra to have announced, given the potential blowback.

So the next time Ezra claims, hey, he can't be held responsible for the actions of people who take him seriously or misinterpret what he's asking of them, it seems to me only appropriate to quote his own words back at him.

I'm betting that will be awkward.

I is boosterized.

As of yesterday, I am now triple-vaxxed and ready to party. No, no, just kidding, I have no intention of being an ass and wandering around in crowds unmasked. But I still feel safer.

Rebel News' Ezra Levant announces a "bounty" on medical professionals:

In totally unrelated news, Rebel's village idiot Tamara Ugolini will accuse someone else of "hate speech":

You can't make this up. You just can't.


Ezra Levant putting a public $5,000 bounty on a doctor did not violate Twitter's code of conduct:

I, on the other hand, was suspended from Twitter permanently for describing disgusting pile of human refuse and white nationalist Senator Denise Batters as a "twatwaffle."

Sure, that sounds fair.

I'm sure this will end well.

So, Rebel News' Ezra Levant is now putting literal "bounties" on medical professionals:

I'm sure Ezra's relentless, public denigration of people can't possibly end badly, oh, wait ...

Where were we ... oh, right, I'm sure this can't end badly.

I wouldn't be pre-ordering that new leather couch if I were you.

Ah, Ezra Levant, classy as ever ...

However, history suggests that such bounties from Ezra are never collected; I've had a couple correspondents assure me they provided Ezra with what he was asking for, and they never saw a dime. So ... govern yourselves accordingly.

Dear Sheila:

Apparently, Sheila is terribly, terribly concerned about violent assault:

And here's Sheila's co-worker at Der Rebel, who she has never, ever, ever, ever, ever criticized:

Dear Sheila: You might want to sit this one out.

And in this corner, defending conversion therapy ...

Well, you knew that someone had to be such an appallingly disgusting piece of human garbage that they would come out in support of conversion therapy:

Check back tomorrow when Der Rebel argues, perhaps, that defining an age of sexual consent infringes on the rights of 8-year-olds to have sex with adults. Or something equally stupid.

CC HQ is now Hot Sauce Central.

Canada Post just dropped off my recent order from the Capsaicin Cartel, which includes a limited edition, numbered (8/48) and autographed bottle of something called "Kill Vlad," and I'll just quote the description here:

We present an homage to Vlad The Impaler and the many mythical vampire legends. This special limited release KILL VLAD is a numbered collector's edition extreme hot sauce.  This special, one-time only recipe is made over the course of 10 days. A beautiful stock is made by simmering Count Dracula peppers, 7 pot Primos, Naga-Vipers, Trinidad Moruga Scorpions as a base with shallots, garlic, red bell peppers and heirloom tomatoes added. After hours, the reduction is separated and the pulp is dehydrated. The liquid is then simmered again and fresh ingredients are added to flavor the broth. The process is repeated for a 3rd time. The liquid is once again heated and the dehydrated powder added along with blood orange puree, maple syrup and citrus zest to make this unique sauce. 

Only 48 numbered bottles were made and are available as long as inventory lasts.

So, yeah, I'm special, but not in a Joe Warmington kind of way.

P.S. I got one of these, too.

Bring the pain.

Rebel News: All the news that's fit to ignore.

While the petulant children and grievance generators at Rebel News are current sobbing inconsolably over the roughing up of professional victim David Menzies, any bets on whether they give even a single line of coverage to a Fox News host openly calling for the murder of Dr. Anthony Fauci?

I'm guessing no.

The sleazy hypocrisy that is Sheila Gunn Reid.

Every time Rebel News' Sheila Gunn Reid shrieks about the unfairness of vaccine mandates and the appalling discrimination against the unvaccinated, remember that, only a few years ago, she felt entirely differently if it were her squalling brats that were at risk:

Gunn Reid: This is what a total lack of ethics, principles and moral compass looks like.

Chronicles of Twatrick: You keep using that word "temporary" ...

Until something of significance happens (and that may not take long), I won't have much more to say about Lloydminster's Patrick "Super Fucking Quintuple Threat Kid Cash Dragon Fire MMA Cosplay Warrior Street Fighting Man" Ross, other than to point out this amusing bit of history from way back in January of 2013, wherein Patrick smugly describes the minor inconvenience of personal bankruptcy:

And how did that "temporary" thingy work out? Oh, right ...

How it worked out is that Patrick is, almost nine years later, still in bankruptcy and, even worse, without a trustee, no longer protected by bankruptcy's stay of proceedings, with any discoverable assets of his currently being seized and handed over to me by the collections department of the Saskatchewan sheriffs. And if, for any reason, Patrick has recently received any significant assets from, say, a family member, it's pretty much a done deal that the sheriffs will find it and it will become mine.

In any event, it is the holiday season, and it would be uncharitable of me to not wish Patrick a Happy Interestversary and a Merry Collectionmas.

After all, I'm not a monster.

Hey, I was at that bakery.

CTV News highlights a delightful bakery in Alfred from where I purchased some goodies earlier this fall ...

... while I was hanging out here:

You're jealous. I know you are.

This is what pure fucking evil looks like.


The lies, the lies, the glorious lies.

Um, no:

As numerous people have pointed out, David "The Menses" Menzies was not standing patiently on a sidewalk; he, in fact, bullied his way through an RCMP security perimeter and obstructed the PM's motorcade, then verbally abused security officials who quite properly dragged his sorry fucking ass out of the way.

So Der Rebel is lying about what happened. I'm sure you're shocked.

This is how fucking stupid we've become.


Dear asteroid: Any time now.

I can't even ...


So, just to be clear, the spectacularly dishonest "media outlet" that mocked vaccines, discouraged wearing masks and vowed to support anyone who refused to abide by public health regulations, with the result of overloading hospitals with COVID-19 patients that forced elective surgeries to be delayed for months (if not years) will now ... complain about medical wait times.

I have no words. No fucking words at all.

The bullshit regarding vaccinations and "medical privacy."

Of all the inane arguments made for rejecting vaccine mandates, perhaps the spectacularly stupidest is, "Hey, asking whether I've been vaccinated violates my right to medical privacy!" Let me explain why that excuse is monstrously fucking stupid.

You've already heard the dumbassery about how vaccine mandates violate one's right to medical privacy under the Charter, and the Criminal Code of Canada, and the British North America Act, and the Magna Carta, and the Ten Commandments, and the Code of Hammurabi, and the Interstellar Statutes of Proxima IV, and so on, and so on, and so stupidly on. But this argument is so much weasel poop since, with few exceptions, Canadians (and people in general) gleefully violate their own medical privacy on a regular basis. Let me explain via examples.

If you show up at work with your leg in a cast and a bandage on your wrist, it's totally expected to hear, "Whoa, dude, what happened to you?" To which it would be a bit shocking for you to snap back, "Hey! How dare you violate my medical privacy by asking that question!" No, you probably wouldn't be such an asshole. Rather, you'd say, "Ah, was walking the dog and there was a squirrel and ... well, you know the rest." And it would register on no one that asking what happened to you, and you telling them, involved a violation of your precious medical privacy.

And if you showed up at work with an appallingly swollen jaw and sporting numerous delightful colours of the rainbow, and someone exclaimed, "Holy shit, Karen, have you been hanging out with David Menzies again?", you probably wouldn't tell them to mind their own fucking business because Charter and rights and blah blah blah. No, you'd describe how you recently had all your wisdom teeth out, whereupon others would chime in, "Oh, yeah, I remember getting mine out," and everyone would try to outdo each other with their own wisdom teeth-related horror stories, and no one would be shrieking hysterically, "Medical privacy!"

Hell, most people have no problem sharing their medical history with total strangers: "Bartender, a double of your best single malt, I'm celebrating my recent knee replacement." And the total stranger next to you might pipe up, "Really, I had mine three months ago, who did yours?" And you'd spend the next hour comparing surgery stories, with nary a thought about Charter violations or medical segregation or discrimination, the point being that people who scream hysterically about privacy with respect to COVID-19 vaccinations are utter hypocrites when it comes to virtually every other aspect of their medical history.

Now, there are situations where you would definitely want to protect your medical privacy, which involve issues you'd rather not become public knowledge for one reason or another. For example, you might not want anyone to know you're currently in chemo for cancer, or that you're in therapy for depression, that sort of thing, the kind of thing that, in some way, you would find embarrassing or humiliating, and that's perfectly understandable. But if that's your argument, then you kind of need to explain how that applies to getting a COVID-19 vaccination shot.

In what way would it be embarrassing or humiliating to reveal that? Who exactly would (even hypothetically) think less of you for that? Oh ... the confrontational assholes who are milking this entire situation for the grift of a lifetime, that's who. It's simply incomprehensible to argue that getting a vaccine shot would diminish your reputation, except among people who are total twats to begin with in the first place and are trying to make a public spectacle of their refusal.

In short, this whole nonsense about "medical privacy" is just that -- nonsense. The blathering buffoons who shriek hysterically about this are the same ones who are more than happy to yammer on about their wisdom teeth, or appendectomy, or shoulder surgery, or damn near anything else, but will draw the utterly meaningless line at vaccinations. That's pretty much the definition of hypocrisy.

Thanks for stopping by.

P.S. One more point worth making. Invariably, the people who whine the loudest about this are the ones who regale us with stories about how they walked up to a restaurant that clearly explained that it was enforcing vaccine mandates, and were asked to produce their vaccine certificates, and began ranting about their rights, and privacy, and Nazis and so on. To which there is a simple response.

If you saw the sign that said you needed to be vaccinated, and you knew you were going to refuse to produce proof, why the fuck did you try to get in anyway, other than for the pure public spectacle? If you knew you were going to be refused entrance, what was the purpose of your asking to be seated, other than your wanting to cause a scene, probably for the video you were going to post later?

If you honestly think being asked whether you've been vaccinated against a deadly virus is such a savage violation of your rights, here's a suggestion -- avoid the places that clearly advertise you need to be vaccinated. How difficult is that?

Rebel News wrapping things up? The evidence is compelling.

Numerous correspondents here at CC HQ have suggested that the evidence is increasing that Ezra Levant, having realized he's running out of ways to milk the rubes at Der Rebel, is quietly shifting operations over to the spectacularly sketchy "The Democracy Fund," with which Ezra has already climbed into bed for several ventures.

One need only slither over to TDF -- specifically, to their Jobs page -- to see open positions that ever so coincidentally were once posted at Rebel News, but no longer show up there:

There is zero doubt that, at the moment, Rebel and TDF have morphed into some weird, classless combination of horrible journalism and legal panhandling, but if the entirety of Rebel News' pandemic-related begging relocates to TDF, well, that leaves precious little for Rebel to do other than send David Menzies out to get the shit beat out of him.

Will 2022 be the year that Ezra Levant packs up in the middle of the night, and drags all those donations over to his new digs at TDF? Let's watch.

The burning dumbassitude ...

On the other hand, let's face it, I'm pretty sure Justin could take Menzies. Actually, I'm pretty sure Chrystia Freeland could stomp his sorry ass as well.

Chronicles of Twatrick: Happy interestversary!

It is now exactly four months to the day since the ruling that registered my 2010 defamation judgment against Patrick Ross in Saskatchewan, and increased the interest rate on the outstanding amount from two per cent to five percent:

Loyal readers are invited to do the math.

P.S. The previously-seized $7,500 has no effect on the above, as that money was collected pursuant to long-outstanding cost awards, and have nothing to do with the amount of the judgment, which is now at the front of the line with respect to Saskatchewan sheriffs' to-do list.

I look forward to a green Christmas.

One of these days, this is going to end very badly for David Menzies.

There are a number of lessons to take from Rebel News' David Menzies acting like a dangerous asshole in the proximity of the Prime Minister of Canada and getting stomped by the RCMP for it:

but the obvious question is -- is Menzies satisfied with his assigned role as Rebel News' fundraiser-related punching bag, given the inevitability that this is going to extremely badly for him one day? Here, let me explain.

Menzies' job at Ezra Levant's Rebel News is no secret -- go out, act abusive and confrontational to event organizers, security personnel and law enforcement, all for the sake of provoking a response, then screaming "harassment!" and launching another fundraiser. But here's the flaw in that strategy.

As everyone knows, if your entire business model is based on generating outrage, you can't just keep generating the same level of outrage; if you do, your audience will eventually get bored of the same ol', same ol' and wander off to be outraged elsewhere. This is not rocket surgery; it's a simple fact of human nature, which means that for Menzies' shtick to keep working, he needs to up the assholishness on a regular basis, and here's why that is probably not good for his health.

Until now, Menzies' standard move was to show up at some event, insult everyone in the vicinity and yell stupid questions from the other side of the security perimeter. All well and good but, after a while, everyone figured out his pattern and simply took to ignoring him, which really killed the dramatic effect of his douchebaggery. So what to do? Easy -- take it to the next level.

Which explains Menzies' most recent stunningly stupid attempt at notoriety which, according to numerous sources, involved bullying his way through a security perimeter and rushing the Prime Minister's motorcade, whereupon he was quite justifiably tackled by the RCMP and dragged away, where he was (again, justifiably) slapped around just a bit for his stupidity.

All this inspires the obvious question for Menzies: Is he happy being Ezra's punching bag for the sake of fundraisers that collect tens of thousands of dollars, and end up who knows where? More importantly, does Menzies even remotely understand the potential for this ending way, way worse for him?

For this recent event, David should be grateful that all he ended up with was a few scrapes and a slight headache, because it's not hard to imagine a much uglier result. It's easy to imagine another such rally where, on a dark, snowy night with poor visibility, the Prime Minister arrives by car whereupon, out of nowhere, a man crashes the security tape and runs toward the procession, yelling something indistinguishable and holding an unidentifiable object in his hand that no one can tell is a microphone, at which point -- fearing for the well-being of the PM -- the RCMP simply draw down and blow David Menzies' stupid fucking head off.

Because that day is assuredly coming, as long as David agrees to play the out-of-control buffoon for Ezra's benefit and, some day, Dave is going to go one step too far for the sake of a Rebel News fundraiser, and he will not be walking away with just a few scraped knuckles and a broken microphone.

It's only a matter of time until this happens, so David might want to take a step back and ask himself if this is really what he signed up for.

Speaking of burning stupid ...

No idea who this is, beyond someone indescribably imbecilic ...

Just stop eating the paint chips and you'll be fine, dear.

P.S. What the fuck is it with this level of dumbass stupid?

How does someone get to be a journalist and still be this clueless?

Ezra Levant is lying. In other news, water still wet.

As I am conveniently on Rebel News' mailing list, I am regularly gifted with Ezra Levant's rancid dishonesty, and today is no different. Witness this snippet from Ezra's latest regurgitation (emphasis tail-waggingly added):

I'm angry and sad at the same time.

Justin Trudeau’s bodyguards beat up our reporter David Menzies.It was completely unprovoked.

David was standing on a public sidewalk outside a public event where Trudeau was going to a Liberal Christmas party. David was doing what all media do — waiting patiently to call out a question to Trudeau as he walked in.

Um, no. As numerous people on social media have pointed out, David did in fact deliberately violate the security perimeter for the Prime Minister and his party, and obstructed the motorcade, despite being told repeatedly by security personnel not to do that.

No, Ezra, you putz, David was not standing on a public sidewalk; he was being the same asshole he always is, and always at your instructions.

But thanks for playing.
