"Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, therefore we need to build pipelines."
No, seriously, she said that in the House of Commons.
"Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, therefore we need to build pipelines."
No, seriously, she said that in the House of Commons.
I was unaware that the purpose of the Keystone XL pipeline was to *checks notes* reduce Canada's dependence on Russian oil:
The things you learn reading Rebel News.
Even as burly, bearded truckers with halitosis and insufficient teeth yammer on about their unequivocal courage and stalwartness defending their freedoms to ... to ... I dunno, insist on being susceptible to a deadly virus, one is reminded of, years ago, the indescribable courage of right-wing gasbag Hugh Hewitt.
Seriously, it's awesome. You'll thank me for recommending it.
Let's recall how Rebel News' Ezra Levant raked in another $28.6 million to leap to the legal defense of any idiot truckers who were dumb enough to take his advice to continue breaking the law:
Ah, but it's always the nefarious fine print that's going to get you in the end since, as you can see from the above if you read carefully, Ezra very specifically restricts his financial largesse to those idiots who were involved exclusively in the Coutts, AB blockade, which means that -- if you interpret the above literally -- all of those morons who illegally occupied Ottawa (or the Ambassador Bridge for that matter) and got tickets and fines, and were arrested, and had their rigs seized and their trucking licenses cancelled are, well, shit out of luck.
So are there any truckers who are currently skulking home from Ottawa, laden with tickets and fines, who have submitted their bill to Rebel News? And are they willing to share the reply they got? And do they finally understand what the phrase "fine print" means?
I'm just asking.
Can someone explain to perpetual imbecile Lorrie Goldstein the concept of "Fuck around and find out?"
Christ, what a dumbass.
[OTTAWA] Government of Canada announces sanctions against Russia, including banning all media sources of pro-Putin propaganda; Rebel News' Ezra Levant immediately announces lawsuit to protect his freedom of speech.
CPC MP and blatant Russian asset Candice "Murphy Brownshirt" Bergen brags about standing up for Ukraine:
The crowd tells her to fucking fuck the fuck off:
We need way more of that.
It is impossible to put into words the crushing stupidity of Andrew Lawton, so just go read. You will actually feel your IQ dropping by the minute.
I have no words ...
Let me sum this up to save you the trouble of tracking it down and reading it in its mind-numbing, ignorant entirety: Rebel airhead Tamara Ugolini is outraged -- OUTRAGED!!! -- that long-term care homes are refusing to allow unvaccinated, virus-spewing plague rats free access to a building full of elderly, fragile and possibly immuno-compromised members of other peoples' family.
No, seriously, that's why she's angry. Send money.
JUXTAPOSE: The thigh-sucking hypocrisy here relates to Ugolini's own oil patch trailer trash Rebel colleague, Sheila Gunn Reid, only a few years ago, making it clear she was not a huge fan of allowing the unvaccinated in the vicinity of her undoubtedly hideous, malformed children:
It's amazing how your most strenuously-held principles sometimes just follow your paycheque.
Ah, yes, the nefarious "undisclosed" "secret" location ...
... that pretty much everyone on the planet knows about:
Tune in next week when Alexandra warns us that Erin O'Toole is in danger of losing the CPC leadership, and that Maxime Bernier appears to be a racist.
Rebel News: "We're perfectly fine with prominent Republicans being keynote speakers at an openly white supremacist, anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying, pro-Putin Republican Party event."
Also Rebel News: "Justin Trudeau once wore blackface at a high school play 30 years ago! This ugly racism cannot be allowed to stand!"
Man who spent the last three months of his mom's life harassing people on the internet will now criticize the idea of spending the last three months of one's mom's life harassing people on the internet.
Wingnuts: "Justin Trudeau is such a brutal, fascist dictator for imposing draconian vaccine mandate rules on truckers!"
Wingnuts: "Justin Trudeau is such a pansy-assed, cowardly pussy for hiding out at his cottage when truckers come to town!"
Wingnuts: "Justin Trudeau is such a brutal, fascist dictator for invoking the Emergencies Act to deal with all those hot tubs and bouncy castles!"
Wingnuts: "Justin Trudeau is such a pansy-assed, cowardly pussy for folding under pressure and revoking the Emergencies Act!"
Wingnuts: "Justin Trudeau is such a brutal, fascist dictator for sending his critics to jail!"
Tune in tomorrow ...
It's not the tweet, it's the brutal beatdown from the replies.
Really, there are so many riffs on that theme.
It's ironic that the people who so loudly scream that they're prepared to go to jail for their principles are the very ones who hire the best lawyers to make sure that doesn't happen.
"I'm ready to die for my beliefs!"
"Dude, you're not even prepared to get out of your hot tub for your beliefs."
Sure, I can see the equivalence.
U.N. Security Council condemns Russian invasion of Ukraine; council member Russia vetoes condemnation. Everyone goes out for tacos.
Um, "have not been charged with any crime?" What utter douchebagitude, given that many, many of these very people have in fact been charged with criminal mischief.
The dishonesty of Ezra Levant would be breathtaking, if it wasn't so predictable.
... the consequences of your actions:
Read the whole thing. It's delightful.
At the moment, Lloydminster's village idiot and favourite undischarged bankrupt Patrick "Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen" Ross is lecturing others on how defamation law works:
I honestly don't know how this can get any funnier.
P.S. Is it worth pointing out that the lawsuit Patrick is referring to has nothing even remotely to do with defamation, so that anti-SLAPP legislation would be of no value? Lord, but that guy is thick. It's amazing he can even order a $21 hamburger without help.
What an awesome idea ... a bunch of Trump-loving hillbillies converging on DC ...
And given that the cops in DC still have fresh memories of the last insurrection that resulted in one of their own being dead, I'm sure they'll have plenty of patience for your fucking shit.
This is the dumbass fucking imbecility up with which we are forced to put:
Honestly, Lorrie, can you and Rex Murphy just get a room already?
[OTTAWA] Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revokes Emergency Act, explaining that it did its job and is no longer necessary; CPC interim leader Candice Bergen responds by demanding that Freedom Convoy immediately return to Ottawa and resume trashing the living shit out of the city.
It may amuse some to learn that, if one discounts the money seized from Lloydminster's Patrick "Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen" Ross that went to pay long-outstanding cost awards, even after being relieved of some $9,000, Patrick now owes me more than he did when I registered my defamation judgment against him back in August of 2021. As difficult as it might be to wrap your head around that, if you do the math, that's the facts.
The first collection by Saskatchewan sheriffs netted some $6,400, which went entirely to pay off some cost awards that Patrick had been blithely ignoring all these years, plus letting the sheriffs collect their cut in the way of administrative fees, which means that not a penny of that went to the outstanding amount for the judgment itself:
Since then, the sheriffs have collected another $2,500 or so but, if you run the numbers, given that the outstanding judgment amount is increasing by 5 per cent per year, that $2,500 does not quite cover the interest that has accrued since last August. In short -- and take a moment to truly appreciate this -- despite Patrick's bank account having been lightened by almost $9,000 recently, he actually owes me more with respect to the outstanding judgment amount now than he did before.
At this point, it is fair to say that Patrick is never, ever, ever, ever, ever going to get out from under this. So he might want to get comfortable living in his car. Since it's a Ford Escape, I'm sure the seats recline.
P.S. I'm still moderately interested in tracking down the meatspace co-ordinates of Baron von Loadenhosen (particularly his place of employment), but it's not critical given that the Saskatchewan sheriffs have Patrick's bank account info I gave them, and they will stop by on a regular basis and clean it out for me.
What Patrick needs to worry about is the long game here since, over time, it is simply not sustainable for him to have his bank account emptied every month or two, and it's even less sustainable given that Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy would really like to have a chat with him, and his idiotic million dollar defamation lawsuit against Peter Skinner will assuredly be kicked to the curb, at which time Peter will be awarded costs, and Patrick will have someone looking to collect from him from another direction and, eventually, if he files his income tax and expects a refund, I can assure you he won't be seeing it as the OSB will step in and garnish it for my benefit.
So Patrick is welcome to keep running, and refusing to answer his phone, and refusing to reply to e-mails, and refusing to acknowledge registered letters sent to his Lloydminster address but, eventually, he will need to surface, and when he does, there will be a number of very unhappy people with court orders waiting for him. And if he thinks his life is uncomfortable now, well, he has no idea.
Tamara Lich: Denied bail.
Pat King: Still sitting in a prison cell.
Numerous truckers and their supporters: Facing multiple criminal charges and the loss of their rigs, and currently camping out in a pig field south-east of Ottawa.
CPC interim leader Candice "Murphy Brownshirt" Bergen: Exposed as an utterly unprincipled political opportunist.
CPC MP Pierre Poilievre: Still a racist.
CPC MP Michael Cooper: Still a Nazi.
Andrew Scheer: Still a retard.
Ezra Levant: Still a grifter.
Justin Trudeau: Still Prime Minister.
Canadian right-wingers, racists and white nationalists who were totally fine with a 15-year-old Omar Khadr spending 10 years in Guantanamo are horrified that Pat King might spend a fifth day in jail because, you know, white guy.
Curiously, while I am (and have been) free to do pretty much what I want, "Freedom Convoy" organizer Tamara Lich is behind bars, and is looking at potentially several years in prison.
It would be one thing for CPC MP Mark Strahl to sheepishly admit that he publicized that obvious fiction because he had been told it had happened, and he stupidly never bothered to confirm it. But that is not what happened here -- Strahl openly claims to know who "Briane" is, and claims to have been working with her, and that is an entirely different situation.
At this point, the appropriate question for Strahl would be, "Do you still claim to know who this Briane is?" You're not asking him to reveal anything, you're just asking Strahl to confirm that he is standing by his story, and that he knows the identity of this woman.
Keep it simple, kids.
It is simply maddening that, for the sake of an unattainable journalistic "balance," the CBC will continue to offset reasoned, thoughtful opinion with the demented, deranged, dishonest rantings of members of the CPC.
There is no value to giving these people any air time if they continue to lie. So knock it off.
So, to recap, the Canadian government is currently going aggressively after both the people who actively participated in various illegal "trucker" blockades and occupations, as well as any obvious "influencers" and sources of income, which brings us to Rebel News, who should be right at the top of the list of entities that provided material and/or financial support for all that criminal behaviour by openly and gleefully promising to provide free legal representation to anyone who wanted to continue committing crimes of one sort or another:
And given that Der Rebel has just as openly and gleefully advertised the services of Calgary lawyer Chad "Chad" Williamson, one would think that the authorities might want to have a conversation with Chad and, who knows, perhaps put a lock on all that cash until various ugly details are sorted out. Because if encouraging people to continue committing crimes by promising them free legal representation when they get caught doesn't represent offering financial support for ongoing criminal activity, well, it's not clear what does.
I'm sure Chad still has all the receipts.
P.S. It remains to be seen whether Der Rebel openly brags about all their upcoming legal victories regarding truckers and trucker supporters being charged criminally the way they did in breathlessly celebrating their trivial wins related to mask mandates: "SUCCESS! We had Mary Ann's $85 ticket for entering a Dollar Store without her mask overturned in court!!!"
Seems to me that the people being charged here are in a wee bit more trouble than Mary Ann, so it will be interesting to see Chad's choice of legal defences. Perhaps it will involve the First Amendment. One can only hope.
Because the horrific murder of six million Jews and the enslavement of an entire race for hundreds of years is *exactly* equivalent to Justin Trudeau wearing blackface in a high school play 30 years ago.
Now make fun of residential schools, Lorrie. You can do it. I know you can.
There is something truly mind-scrambling about Rebel News' in-house racist, bigot and stunningly dishonest trailer trash and embarrassment to her family Sheila Gunn Reid going after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by quoting a deranged, mentally-crippled Nazi like Rand Paul:
Tune in tomorrow when Sheila fellates both Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham, out behind the Red Deer junior high school.
Given that the current FINTRAC- and Emergencies Act-driven freezing and seizing of bank accounts is restricted to either active participants or (apparently) "influencers" of the laughably-misnamed "Freedom Convoy," one ponders why legal butt plug Chad "Chad" Williamson is not wondering why he suddenly can't pay for his fourth martini, given his open involvement with Rebel News and legal assistance for truckers:
If FINTRAC is legitimately going after anyone who has been offering material or financial assistance to an illegal occupation and numerous obvious examples of criminal activity, then it seems only logical that both Chad and Der Rebel have some serious 'splainin' to do, no?
I'm just throwing that out there.
HMMMMM ... curiously, the Rebel News crowdfunder hoovering up cash to buy Chad a second above-ground pool seems to have been "frozen" at 80% of donations for at least a couple days now:
Fresh off his tear-jerking report of "Briane from Chilliwack," CPC MP Mark Strahl warns us of the tragic demise of "Becky," who died from snorting marijuana.
Apparently, her bank account was frozen, too.
How much would you pay to see a charity boxing match between yammering asshat Pierre Poilievre and "Balcony Man?"
Can someone make that happen?
On my high-speed run back to YOW from Montreal this morning, I did in fact see a field full of dumbfucks^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H truckers just off the Hawkesbusy/Vankleek Hill exit so, yes, they've relocated out to the boondocks, which inspires the obvious question:
What is the goal? What is the end game?
They're not getting back into Ottawa, and Quebec sure as hell won't have a scintilla of patience with their shit, so what's the plan, Stan? There is more than a little irony to bitch and whine about not being able to make a living unvaccinated, and to deal with that by setting up camp in a remote field next to a manure spreader for the foreseeable future, wondering if either your rig or bank account is about to be yanked out from under you by Justin Trudeau.
As Gimli, son of Gloin, once said, "Let them stay there! Let them rot!"
As I am on Rebel News' begging bowl mailing list and the recipient of relentless fundraising screeds, it's amusing that the latest is related to how I am apparently losing my "freedoms" (despite having spent the weekend in Montreal, doing pretty much what I wanted).
The latest of Ezra Levant's 4,612 registered URLs would appear to be "freedompassport.ca", where you are invited to send Ezra $18.95:
Yeah, I'll pass.
Conservative senator Michael MacDonald, a member of Canada's chamber of "sober second thought," insists he made a public asswipe of himself only because he was sloshingly, falling down, barfing all over his girlfriend's shoes drunk.
[OTTAWA] Woman who got up, got dressed, made her way downtown, joined illegal protest, pushed her way to the front and threw herself in front of a police horse complaining about being trampled by a police horse.
Video at 11.
Conservative Senator Michael MacDonald, who makes a six-figure salary and works less than 20 hours a week, mocks Ottawans who apparently all make six-figure salaries and work 20 hours a week:
MacDonald then threw his tea at a server, screaming that it had not been heated to precisely 82.6C as he had ordered, and to take it back.
Wherein people who did not have to put up with 22 days of violent and illegal occupation will now lecture you on how it was no big deal.
In unrelated news, Patrick is still threatening to sue people for millions of dollars for calling him an "asshat" because it is apparently a Charter right to not be called an "asshat."
Seriously, you can look it up.
Rebel News' Sheila Gunn Reid, who is a relentless and well-established liar, is currently lecturing her readers on the importance of accuracy.
Rebel journalist "on the ground" releases shocking video of mounted constabulary at Wellington and Bank charging the crowd and savagely knocking an elderly woman to the ground:
Fortunately, despite the 86,000 mounted attackers, injuries were minimal.
"All right, I have to cough up a quarter million in fees and costs for my latest legal ass-kicking, so get out there and get beat up!"
"On it, boss."
Independent MPP Randy Hiller is committing a criminal act by openly encouraging people to flood 911 emergency lines with nuisance calls -- he still has a Twitter account.
I, on the other hand, was banned from Twitter for life for describing racist, white nationalist and mound of human garbage Senator Denise Batters as a "twatwaffle."
Sure, that sounds fair.
OK, a day late, but it's been six months to the day that Saskatchewan Court of Queens Bench told Patrick he owed me just north of $104,000 ...
... and I'm tardy in reporting on this as I am currently enjoying a long weekend in Montreal, all of it on Patrick's tab courtesy of the most recent seizure by sheriffs from his Synergy Credit Union account.
Endless refills on brunch mimosas? Don't mind if I do.
Shortly, your humble scribe will be jumping in the CCmobile and high-tailing it out of town to Montreal for a long weekend, where I will eat and drink well for a couple of days. Blogging will be light, unless Andrew Lawton gets pepper-sprayed in the face again.
Convicted malicious defamer and trustee-less undischarged bankrupt who apparently committed criminal identity fraud and has, for years, neglected his legal obligations to Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy will now lecture us on the "rule of law."
... if you could pack them in ever so tightly so that the ones way at the back can't be claimed until all the vehicles in front of it leave first, that'd be great, thanks.
[Ottawa, Feb. 18] Pursuant to current convoy enforcement activities, Ottawa police announce that they will be seizing all children who appear to have been mistreated, whereupon those children will be placed in protective care and, if parents do not claim them within eight days, the children will be considered "relinquished" and put up for adoption.
Whoops, hang on ... they were talking about pets. Never mind then ... carry on.
P.S. Would it be asking too much to have the relentless blare of air horns piped into the holding cells for the next several days?
I understand you're in the market to identify anyone who offered material or financial assistance to convoy truckers or their supporters:
Here, let me help:
No, no, don't thank me ... just doing my part to defend democracy.
