Chronicles of Twatrick: Gratuitous spending, indeed.

One of my regular confidential informants just informed me that Lloydminster's most notorious and most childish on-prem undischarged bankrupt just bragged on social media about how he was having the coolest time at this concert:

which happens to be the James Barker Band, which played just yesterday in ... Grande Prairie, AB, which establishes that:

  • Patrick is indeed in Grande Prairie, and
  • He's spending money on concerts that should be going to me.

The proper authorities have been informed.

That is all.

P.S. I am doing everything I can to arrange for a process server to show up personally at Patrick's Lloydminster address to get a rise out of his father. I'll let you know how that works out.

Apparently, I need to explain "atheism."

Regular anonymous correspondent tells me that some truly stupid people elsewhere are yammering on about "atheism," and getting it completely wrong. Here, let me clear things up.

And, yes, that is the correct definition.

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is ..." Oh, shut up.

It's pretty much a mantra by now used to defend wildly unlimited open carry of even the most lethal of semi-automatic and fully-automatic killing machines:

"The only that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

This idiocy is used to defend the idea of as many people packing heat as possible to deal with, you know, shooters walking into an elementary school and mowing down kids and teachers. Unfortunately, that maxim has an absolutely fatal flaw, which I will now explain:

If everyone can carry, there is no way to tell the good guys from the bad guys until it's too late. That this even needs to be explained is depressing beyond imagination, but let's give it a shot. Pun intended.

"If everyone at that school had been armed, that kid would never have been able to kill 19 children."

Really? And how does that work, exactly? Because if everyone has the right to strap an AR-15 to their back and wander around freely, then how do you tell the good guys from the bad guys in the first place?

So some guy in full camo and an assault rifle enters a school. Is he there to cause mayhem? Or maybe, because he has the legal right, he's just come from deer hunting and is there to pick up his daughter. How can you know the difference? What makes him an obvious "bad guy"? He enters a classroom full of kids. Is there any cause for alarm yet? How are you going to know, until he unslings his AR-15 and starts shooting kids? If everyone is free to wander around with a fully-loaded assault weapon, then there's nothing you can do when someone so equipped walks into a school. Or a church. Or a synagogue.

Until they start shooting. By then, it's kinda too late, but I assume you figured that out by now.

The stupid. It burns.

Keean Bexte and "The Counter Signal": Grifty, grifty, grifty.

Recall how ex-Rebeler Keean "Beaker" Bexte was shrieking hysterically about how he needed $13,000 right now or he would be forced to, well, get a real job:


Hey, I know ... let's do the math.

It appears that Bexte is a customer of provider "Fastly," which has a readily available pricing table:

Note the different pricing in various global regions so, just to give Bexte the benefit of the doubt, we'll do some calculations based on the most expensive region of all: Africa, which charges $0.28 per GB for the first 10 TB. According to Bexte's own panhandling, his site is using a whopping 1.65TB per month, which at $0.28 per GB represents a monthly cost of ...


That's it ... a monthly expense of $462.00, and that's using the most expensive region possible. If one restricted oneself to just North America, the monthly total would be a whopping ...


No one need take my word for it, do the math for yourself. And even if Bexte is using a different provider, the charges are typically pretty standard. So if we say that Bexte was racking up a couple hundred dollars in bandwidth charges every month, if his current outstanding bill is some $13,000, that would have taken him ...

Almost five and a half years.

Does anyone think any Internet provider would have allowed a client to run a growing tab to the point where they owe $13,000 if that took over five years? I don't fucking think so.

Like they say, a Counter Signal reader and his money are soon parted.

P.S. Hilariously, Bexte writes:

"We have been so successful at sharing our research, news and commentary that we about to break the servers of our web service provider."

Um, no. As you can see above, Bexte thinks 1.65TB a month is some sort of staggering, provider-crippling amount of bandwidth, whereas even a total idiot can see that the first tier of pricing from Fastly covers everything up to 10TB per month, so Bexte and his racist rubbish are not even close to maxing out the first column.

Jesus, what a tool.

P.P.S. It occurs to me that if I was an Internet service provider, and one of my clients was blatantly misrepresenting our business relationship and accusing me of acting in bad faith or trying to extort money under threat of cancellation of service, I'd consider that potentially defamatory. I wonder if Bexte's provider knows he's bad-mouthing them online?

AFTERSNARK: As I suggested earlier, the most hilarious aspect of this scam is the idea that, after bragging about a readership of a cool million, Bexte is still reduced to begging for what is a fairly paltry sum of $13,000 to stay on the air.

Chronicles of Twatrick: The bombastic legalizing.

While I recently promised that I would not pollute the airwaves with any more sad tales of the dumpster fire/train wreck of a life that is Lloydminster's Patrick Ross, he has sort of forced my hand so I'm going to let you in on something I became aware of only in the last little while.

As regular readers will know, His Royal Highness Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen has frequently threatened legal action against all and sundry who describe him as a bloviating asshat and shitty, shitty author, even though it has been firmly established that, given Patrick's status as an undischarged bankrupt without a trustee, he has absolutely zero standing to launch any lawsuits. This point is not up for debate -- Patrick cannot sue anyone, no matter how much he digs into jurisprudence and misinterprets what he reads there.

More to the point, even if (miraculously) he managed to get a filing past some courthouse clerk, given his history of relentless non-compliance with court orders and refusal to pay cost awards for years on end, Patrick would certainly be required to post significant security. And by "significant," I mean $25,000, perhaps $50,000, as no court would have any sympathy for him at this point. (And if Patrick tried to hire a lawyer, I can assure you that would require a similarly massive retainer.) But you all know all this, so what's new?

What's new is that, not that long ago, my go-to contact at Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy (OSB) revealed to me that, due to multiple complaints against Patrick for his public harassment of people in threatening to sue them, the OSB actually sent an official letter to Patrick, informing him that he does indeed have no legal standing whatsofuckingever to sue anyone for anything.

Make sure you understand the significance of what I just told you.

The OSB itself, responding to Patrick's ongoing bad behaviour and threats, has officially informed him that he has no legal right to sue anyone. And not only did Patrick receive that letter, a copy was sent to the courthouse in Grande Prairie, Alberta, informing them of the same, so that if Patrick tries to file yet another asinine legal action while toiling away in Northern Alberta, his filing will be unceremoniously kicked to the curb by that courthouse. In short, Patrick is now totally screwed in terms of yammering on about how he's going to sue someone for three and a half skajillion dollars for calling him an addle-pated twatwaffle.

(Disclaimer: I have not seen a copy of the aforementioned letter, as it did not relate directly to me so it is inappropriate for the OSB to give me a copy unless it becomes necessary, so I am simply taking my OSB contact's word for what they have done, but I have no reason to not believe him.)

So what does this all mean? Well, as I said, it means Patrick is totally fucked in terms of his constant threatening of legal action, but it also means some potential entertainment value in that, the next time Patrick threatens anyone, one can respond by asking ever so sweetly about how his threats square with the letter he received from the OSB. Even better, ask Patrick to post the letter (he has every right to publish it himself), and suggest he provide his legal interpretation of what it says. But here's the capper.

Given Patrick's chronic dishonesty, it's entirely possible that he will deny the very existence of the letter, and that's where he could find himself in a world of trouble since, if he refuses to acknowledge his receipt of the letter and tries to file an action against someone anyway, that opens him up to just a massive ass-kicking from the court who will demand to know why Patrick was ignoring a clear directive from the OSB.

In any event, if Patrick is threatening you with legal action, you have my permission to ask him about the letter he got from the OSB, and see how he responds. And if he insists that no such letter exists, by God, you need to take a screenshot of that denial because it will be ever so handy when Patrick gets his nads handed to him by the legal system.

And thanks for stopping by.

BONUS TRACK: Just yesterday, Patrick was bloviating as to how he was given the go-ahead to sue by the Court of Queen's Bench:

Two things about the above. First, Patrick filed that without disclosing his status as an undischarged bankrupt without a trustee; the court clerk subsequently made it clear Patrick's filing would not have been accepted if he'd admitted that.

Second, you'll notice that that filing is from October of last year, and I have it on good authority that it has not progressed even the tiniest bit, as Patrick is well aware of what would happen if he made any effort to move it along.

If Patrick wants to brag about his legal standing to prosecute the above action, then let him contact the court and ask for a hearing date, and see how well that ends for him.

JUST TO BE CLEAR about what I wrote above, Patrick has bragged for months about how the above filing against Peter Skinner proves beyond a doubt that he has the right to launch legal actions. However, he carefully omits two details about that action.

He first carefully conceals that he did not disclose his status as an undischarged bankrupt to the court clerk, who absolutely would have rejected his filing if she had known that.

Just as significantly, Patrick glosses over the fact that he filed that action in October of last year and has been milking its alleged importance ever since, despite the fact that he has made no effort to move it along through the court system. As regular visitors will remember, shortly after Patrick filed the above, he went to a great deal of effort to avoid legal service of a response, going so far as listing a bogus address for service. One suspects Patrick is well aware of what would happen if he made even the slightest effort to move this action forward, which is why he is reduced to gloating meaninglessly about a filing from last fall that has gone precisely nowhere since he filed it.

This is the level of dumbass stupid we're dealing with:

Saturday, May 28, 2022


Man who runs one of the most relentless, wide-sweeping and sophisticated data-mining operations on the planet will now express concern over peoples' privacy.

Learned well from his grifty master, Keean has.

Once upon a time, I explained one of the dead giveaways of an obvious grift (courtesy of the Urban Dictionary):

The highlighted portion emphasizes one of the most overused strategies of the grift -- the claim of a sudden emergency wherein one needs an assload of money to stay on the air (see: "Ezra Levant", as in my earlier piece). Whereupon along comes right-wing hack and ex-Rebeler Keean "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" Bexte ...

Yes, send money! Now! Right now, or Bexte might go off the air for *checks notes* violating the terms of his contract.

It does make one wonder, though, how someone who claims an audience of a million readers a month can't find a mere $13,000, given that he panhandles even more relentlessly than Sheila Gunn Reid. Sounds like Bexte is even worse with money management than Patrick Ross, and I do not make that suggestion lightly.

P.S. I am curious as to how having a sizable readership equates to chewing up one and a half terabytes of disk space a month. If people are simply reading your swill, why would that result in such a ginormous use of disk space, unless all that space is being used to track readers for the purpose of, who knows, selling their personal information to third parties? Because people simply reading stuff doesn't explain it, does it? And if Bexte is already heavily into data mining for the purpose of monetizing his readership, why the fuck is he begging for cash?

So many questions.

P.P.S. From that earlier piece, one is reminded of perpetual panhandler Ezra Levant shrieking desperately for at least $150K to sue PayPal:

Whatever became of that legal action, and all the dosh that was sucked up for it? Again, so many questions.

Mentally ill drug addict Dr. Jordan Peterson, who made a career out of publicly shaming and doxxing his critics, will now make a plea for non-disclosure:

How much more burning stupid can we handle?

Christ ...

Chronicles of Twatrick: Ah, the irony.

*Sigh* ... I am simply too weak to resist responding to this recent idiocy from Lloydminster's Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen:

First, Patrick is not suing that person/account as Patrick has no idea who's behind that account and therefore could not possibly have effected a proper and legal service that requires a response. That's how the law works.

Second, there is a delicious irony in Patrick mocking someone for not having filed a defense against a defamation action, since it was precisely the fact that Patrick never filed a defense against my defamation action against him back in 2010 that allowed me to get my default judgment. And we all know how that turned out for Patrick.

Finally, it's unlikely that someone who is an undischarged bankrupt and owes me over $100K (and is reportedly using his father's credit card when out on the town) is "happy living a productive life with good friends & family," as I have it on moderately reliable authority that no one in that dysfunctional family even likes Patrick anymore, given the financial mess and chaos he's dragged them into.

But, hey, enjoy your fantasies, bucko.

BONUS TRACK: It's hard to believe the relentless gaseous bloviating coming out of Lloydminster these days, as Patrick continues to insist he's going to sue the living shit out of ... well, everybody:



However, I can assure one and all that the above is never, ever, ever going to happen for a number of reasons, a few of which I will list here.

First, given Patrick's appalling level of indebtedness to me (along with his history of refusing to obey court orders or pay cost awards until forced), any sane judge will insist that Patrick put up a whacking big chunk of security. Whereupon I will swoop in and simply take it as part of my collection proceedings.

Second, I know (through the OSB) that the legal system is now fully aware of Patrick's status as an undischarged bankrupt without a trustee, and Patrick will absolutely not be allowed to file any further legal actions. Period.

The best part, though, is that the evidence is overwhelming that Patrick is now back in Grande Prairie, and even if he somehow found a way to file an action, he would absolutely have to list -- as his address for legal service -- his address in Grande Prairie, and not a bogus address like Lloydminster where he currently does not reside. And the instant he did that, I would make sure collection agents showed up at that address for future collection (especially if he had to reveal the identity of his employer).

Let's face it -- with one minor exception, Patrick has represented himself in this action related to me since 2010, and the end results show pretty clearly that he doesn't have the slightest fucking idea how the law works. So I don't think anyone has anything to worry about. But if Patrick wants to file something, I would be more than happy to take his contact information to expedite the collection process.


Weighing in on the controversial leak from the Supreme Court that appears to be ready to overturn Roe v Wade, the U.S. National Rifle Association has announced its opposition to abortion as it results in a depleted supply of easy, slow-moving targets.

Herschel Walker is an idiot.

Good Lord, but Donald Trump's anointed one for Georgia Senator is an imbecile:

 If Walker were any more of a moron, he'd be Lorrie Goldstein.

In today's episode of "Tweets That Did Not Age Well" ...


It's hard to believe I admire Pierre Poilievre for something.

From the diseased brain of white nationalist Keean "Beaker" Bexte, we learn that Pierre "Skippy" Poilievre had the good sense to tell the Independent Press Gallery (IPG) to stuff it:

And if you want to understand Pierre's thinking, it's because the IPG is a collection of unaccomplished, self-absorbed, dishonest hacks and trolls masquerading as a journalism organization and, the last time I looked, its entire membership consisted of:

  • Rebel News
  • True North Centre
  • The Post Millennial

and a more disreputable sack of journalistic garbage would be hard to find. So I will hold my nose and praise Pierre Poilievre for telling that sad collection of pretenders that he had better things to do than be quizzed by petulant children cosplaying as reporters.

OK, I managed to screw this up, and unscrew it just as quickly.

No, seriously ... flame ... die. The sooner, the better, you pandering asshats.


How fucking stupid is Herschel Walker?

This fucking stupid.

On today's episode of "Rebel News: Where Are They Now?"


Chronicles of Twatrick: The weaselening, Part Deux.

As a followup to that last post, the evidence is compelling that Lloydminster's Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen is now back in the vicinity of Grande Prairie, AB, one assumes to resume whatever menial, minimum wage employment he'd been toiling through last year, which perhaps changes the social dynamic of my current collection proceedings against him.

See, given that Patrick was until recently clearly embedded back in the Lloyd on his mom's basement couch, there seemed little incentive to continue siccing the Saskatchewan sheriffs on him, but if Patrick is once again gainfully employed, it seems only reasonable to prod said sheriffs to resume regular emptying of his credit union account, but there's possibly a new wrinkle here.

One of my anonymous tipsters suggests I look into whether Patrick is directing his pay cheque, not to his normal bank account, but to an investment vehicle of some kind, and specifically refers to something called "WealthSimple," given that Patrick has mentioned that very investment firm on at least one occasion. It would be fascinating if that is in fact what is happening, as it would be even more no-brainer evidence of Patrick trying to game the bankruptcy system and conceal assets from me, the sheriffs and Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy (OSB), so I will pass on to the proper authorities at least the possibility. (Oh, and the fact that tax filing time just passed suggests I check for the proper parties who have the authority to seize a copy of Patrick's tax return and peruse what's there.)

In any event, if Patrick is truly back in GP and properly employed, feel free to keep tabs on him and send any info my way (either by comment or private e-mail), and I, my lawyers, the sheriffs and the OSB will take it from there.

P.S. The evidence that Patrick is back in GP can be gleaned from his most recent unwatchable YouTube videos. Until recently, Patrick's bloviating was backed with what is obviously the basement walls at Casa Twatrick in the Lloyd:

However, Patrick's last three tubes all show the same easily-identifiable background of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Grande Prairie:

and one assumes Patrick did not make the seven-hour drive and stay there for several days just for the scenery.

Let the collection seizures re-commence!

Chronicles of Twatrick: Patrick back in Grande Prairie?

One of my anonymous informants draws my attention to a couple unsurprisingly unwatchable YouTube videos from Lloydminster's Patrick Ross, wherein one gets a good look at a distinguished building in the background:


whose architectural profile looks suspiciously like that of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Grande Prairie, AB:

leading one to wonder if Patrick is back at his former place of employment and, if so, if he's playing any games trying to conceal income.

If anyone wants to weigh in on the probable identity of that building in the distance, help yourself, and I'll get the Saskatchewan sheriffs to take it from there.

BONUS TRACK: A Google Earth shot seems to confirm that, yes, this is the aforementioned structure, given the green space you can see that matches nicely with the background behind Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen:

Commercial interlude: Local hot sauces in Ottawa.

Purely by chance, I wandered across Haico Krijgsman with his own booth in Ottawa's Byward Market earlier today.

Haico who? Thanks for asking.

Here you go.

I met Haico last year pursuant to wandering south to Mountain, Ontario, to the inaugural "Heating up the Capital" hot sauce expo, when Haico was gracious enough to bring back to town the basket of hot sauces I won, but left before I was aware I was the big winner.

It was a total fluke that I ran across him today, so I was morally obligated to buy a selection of his hot sauces (not all of these, I am not suicidal):

I tried to be reasonable but among my purchases was a bottle of "Scorpion's Kiss" and, more imprudently, one of the limited edition "Devil's Brew":


It remains to be seen whether this is a life decision I regret but ... oh, hell. And, yes, there will be a hot sauce expo again this year.

You've been warned.

How stupid is Dr. Jordan B. Peterson?

I'm glad you asked:





Conservatives who relentlessly insist that public schools bow to their demands regarding the teaching of evolution, religion, sexuality, critical race theory and myriad other topics are suddenly outraged over the idea of ideological propaganda in public schools.

Jesus Christ on a Sybian, what in the absolute f...?

I will deal with the first bit of that imbecilitude ... that Justin Trudeau was personally responsible for Der Rebel not getting Parliamentary Press Gallery (PPG) accreditation. Quite simply, no one was "banned"; all that happened is that the PPG itself (not Trudeau) polices who is accredited and who isn't, and I could go on, but I put all that on pixels back here, so go read it and shut up.

Thanks for stopping by.

Today on "Privileged White People Bitch About Shit" ...



Sure, it's JUST like that.

Because being tortured (possibly to death) under a savage, right-wing military dictatorship is just like having to live with the consequences of choosing not to get vaccinated:

I can't believe I'd never noticed the similarities.

If Christy Clark were any stupider, ...

... she'd be Sheila Gunn Reid:

Seriously, how does one publish something that idiotic and not burst into flame?

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

The stupid. It burns.



Why does white nationalism regularly lead one to Rebel News' doorstep?

And while we are all justifiably pointing out how Fox News' Tucker Carlson has been a driving force behind truly ugly racism and bigotry and white supremacist thinking in the U.S., can we not forget how he has regular help with that on this side of the border as well?

Nothing to see here, move along.

Just someone publicly accusing the Prime Minister of treason and pleading for weapons to do something about it:

I'm sure this can't possibly end badly, right?

Chronicles of Twatrick: Happy (almost) interestversary!

Yes, it's a day early, but it's a very Linux-filled week for your humble scribe and I wanted to make sure I didn't forget to send interestversary salutations to Lloydminster's favourite undischarged bankrupt and basement-dwelling village idiot Patrick Ross on the nine-month anniversary of the registration of my malicious defamation judgment against him in the province of Saskatchewan:

Given that it is now nine months since the registration of my judgment, and given the Saskatchewan-imposed higher interest rate of 5 per cent, I guesstimate that Patrick now owes me just north of $108,000, an amount increasing by around $500 a month due to accruing interest (and let us not forget that Patrick is also responsible for the additional $100-200 per month of Sheriff's collection enforcement fees).

Finally, as regular readers will know, Patrick (quite unsurprisingly) did not turn in the voluntary Sheriff's questionnaire he was served with some weeks ago, which now opens up his entire family to being hauled in for questioning under oath, but as I have already explained, I am in no rush to push this along as I am fine with treating Patrick's debt to me as an investment that is returning 5 per cent annually.

In any event, I don't expect any further developments on the Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen front until we gather here a month from now for the next interestversary. Maybe there will be cake. It would be great if there's cake.

Sunday, May 15, 2022

Gosh, this sounds vaguely familiar ...

Shocking. Who would have imagined that a mass shooting could have been motivated by being radicalized by a diet of far too much racism, bigotry, hatred and white supremacist propaganda:

Oh, wait ... we all could have imagined that:

And why does this latest abomination sound so familiar?

And what steady diet of racist hatred could that Christchurch mass shooter have been feeding on ... oh, right:

To be fair, it's not like Rebel News goes out of its way to demonize minorities or immigrants ... hang on ...

I think I've made my point.

BONUS TRACK: It will come as no surprise to anyone that the white nationalist sub-humans over at Rebel News really, really, really don't want to talk about how relentless demonization of particular demographics can end very badly:


Are we allowed to predict how Der Rebel will screech hysterically, week after week, about the slightest indiscretion by "The Left," while studiously avoiding any mention of Buffalo shooter Payton Gendron and his public affection for the very philosophy spewed on a daily basis by Ezra Levant and his minions?

Let's watch.
