Senategate 2: The Duffy Scandal is Back in the News

It seems like such a long time since Senategate was Canada's hottest and most scandalous show.

And I've missed the cast of shady characters so badly. 

The faithful fanatic Nigel Wright, the old scoundrel Mike Duffy, the shadowy lawyer Benjamin Perrin, and all the other members of the Senategate gang.

But now they're back !!!

Along with all kinds of new and used talent from Stephen Harper's PMO.

Stephen Harper and the Fake War on Sexual Offenders

From the moment Stephen Harper and his Con zombies came to power they have been  loudly proclaiming, or moaning and wailing, that only they can protect Canadian children.

And that anybody who doesn't agree with them must be a sexual predator.

But like so many other things the Con regime does, it is all posturing.

They really are zombies.

And their dangerous incompetence knows no limits.

Why Stephen Harper's Bigotry Will Come Back to Haunt Him

As you know I am having a hard time accepting that Stephen Harper would actually use fear and bigotry to try to win himself another bloody majority.

Because even though he is a grubby creature, it's the lowest thing I have ever seen. And I fear what might happen to this country should he get away with it. 

So it's really good to see some in the MSM finally starting to criticize his dirty game.

And like Tim Harper, start saying enough is enough. 

Michael Harris' Guide to Street-Proofing Our Votes

As you may have heard, Ottawa has been swirling with rumours that Stephen Harper could be getting ready to call a very early election. 

So he can strike before the flames of fear and bigotry he has been fanning die down. And before the Duffy Trial.

And although those rumours seem to have subsided, his performance during his year end interview with Peter Mansbridge was less than reassuring in that regard...

And now that he's even crazier than he was back then, he is capable of ANYTHING.

So just to be safe, or as safe as you can be in his monstrous Harperland, I thought I'd pass on Michael Harris' guide to street-proofing your vote.

Or his Hitchhiker's Guide to the 2015 Election. 

Why Benjamin Netanyahu Could End Up Hurting Stephen Harper

Oh. My. Gorilla. I see Benjamin Netanyahu has begun his controversial visit to the United States.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has arrived in the US to argue against a possible nuclear deal with Iran. Mr Netanyahu says the deal would be inadequate to prevent Tehran from acquiring a nuclear bomb. He is due to give a speech in Congress on Tuesday which was not agreed in advance with the Obama administration, angering the White House.

And although he has spent the last few days trying to portray it as a "sacred mission."

And claiming to speak for the "entire Jewish people."

He not only risks making a fool out of himself, he could also end up embarrassing his faithful stooge Stephen Harper.

Stephen Harper's Fear Card and the Canadian Revolt

It's so cold out there, and the ice is so thick in the bay, that the Island ferry has stopped running.

This small police boat was having a hard time getting anywhere yesterday.

And I have to admit that I feel half frozen too eh?

Because I still can't believe that Stephen Harper would use fear and bigotry to try to win himself another bloody majority.

The Harper Regime and the Continuing War on Canadian Veterans

The day Stephen Harper finally fired Julian Fantino, and made Erin O'Toole the new Minister of Veterans Affairs, I predicted that nothing would change.

Because the way the Cons have treated our veterans wasn't just a failure to communicate. It was a failure of human decency, and a betrayal of our Canadian values.

And sure enough, I was right. O'Toole turned out to be just another tool of his depraved leader.

And the more things change, the more they stay the same. 

José Mujica: The Pauper President Steps Down

In a world groaning under the weight of poverty, ignorance, and war, it's hard to imagine how we will ever solve all our problems.

Or even save the planet from destruction.

In a world full of grubby self serving politicians, it's hard to find a political hero.

But I do have one, and his name is José Mujica.

Why Bill C-51 Will End Up Hurting Stephen Harper

They say Stephen Harper is fit to be tied, or restrained.

He can't stand the idea that his monstrously flawed anti-terrorism bill C-51 is going to take weeks, rather than a few days to study in committee.

And what must be driving him absolutely crazy is the thought that with every passing day more Canadians are coming forward to call his bill bad and dangerous. 

Stephen Harper and the Veiled Appeal to Racism

Stephen Harper would like us all to know, that when it comes to the headgear of some Muslim women, some are more equal or permissible than others.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper doesn't agree with a Quebec Court judge's controversial decision to refuse to hear a woman's case because she was wearing a hijab, a spokesman says. "If someone is not covering their face, we believe they should be allowed to testify," Harper spokesman Stephen Lecce said in a one-line statement.

Even if he doesn't say it himself. And it's just a one-line statement.

Because of course, as I pointed out yesterday and Chantal Hébert points out today, he's counting on fanning the flames of bigotry in Quebec's Great Niqab debate.

Along with his fellow travellers in the Bloc Quebecois.
