On January 31st, Elections Canada released their initial report about the 2021 federal election. You can be forgiven for not noticing their news release. The only mainstream news outlet to carry the report was Blacklock's Reporter, who ran the story under the headline, "Over 200,000 Ballots Not Counted". Blacklock's noted, "The agency sent ballot kits to 1,274,447 … [Read more...]
Erin O’Toole’s Election Dilemma: How to Stop Sounding Like Trudeau
The key to winning an election is to offer policy solutions that set you apart from your rivals in the minds of voters. And this is where Erin O’Toole utterly fails. For 18 months he’s been Trudeau’s "yes-man" on almost every major issue that matters to Canadians. Driving Canada’s debt to a record high? (Trudeau spent more last year than all other Prime Ministers … [Read more...]

Are Your Ready for a Pandemic Spring Election?
I've said for a while that Justin Trudeau wants a spring election. A Friday afternoon funding announcement is one more indicator that The Shiny Pony does indeed intend to send Canadians to the polls for a pandemic election. How he will engineer the fall of his own government remains to be seen. On December 11th, the Trudeau government quietly rolled out their latest climate … [Read more...]
Justin Trudeau: All I want for Christmas is a Pandemic Election
December 2, 2020, 16:00 hrs | Updated final analysis at the bottom of the page. Justin Trudeau will use his government’s December 1st fiscal update to force opposition parties to either lick his boots or send Canadians to the polls. This comes with some sharp unknowns for all sides, but the chips appear to be stacked in favour of the … [Read more...]
Is Widespread Election Fraud Coming to Canada?
Will the next Canadian federal election be marred by widespread electoral fraud? Some would contend election fraud arrived ages ago, albeit not in any organized fashion. But are those people correct? The answer, sadly, is both "Yes" and "No". Elections Canada says it identified over 85,000 names on the federal voter list who were not citizens prior to the 2019 federal … [Read more...]
Time to Incarcerate Trump Supporters?
Last Friday afternoon the media declared Joe Biden President-Elect of the United States of America despite the fact not a single official source has reached this conclusion. This is hardly surprising. The media hated Donald Trump long before he won the 2016 Presidential election and has spent the last four years trying to discredit him. Despite Trump proving every one of … [Read more...]
Did NDP Candidate Dan Coulter Just Make Electoral History in Chilliwack, BC?
Congratulations to Dan Coulter who, if the preliminary results hold, made provincial electoral history as the first NDP candidate ever elected in the provincial riding of Chilliwack, British Columbia. This is a feat nobody thought was possible as Chilliwack is arguably one of the most conservative electoral districts, both federally and provincially, in the entire … [Read more...]

Erin O’Toole: When Will You Keep Your Promise to End the Election Expenses Clawback?
Erin O'Toole, when will you keep your promise to end the Election Expenses Clawback? I ask this not because I believe Erin O'Toole is not on the right track (he is), but because Conservative EDAs deserve to know when they can expect reimbursement for the tens of thousands of dollars the Conservative Party withheld from their Elections Canada rebate after the 2019 federal … [Read more...]

Has the Conservative Party Forgotten its Grass-Roots Foundations?
[Update 2020-03-07: Updated list of official candidates and nomination form links] [Update 2020-02-14: Updated with donation link for Dr. Leslyn Lewis campaign] It’s possible, likely even, the Conservative Party has forgotten its grass-roots foundations.

Trudeau Hypocrisy #737 – “Carbon Offsets”
This week we learned our condescending Prime Minister uses 2 airplanes to criss-cross the nation during the 2019 election campaign. Worse, we learned he did the same thing in 2015. “Despite marching in climate strikes, lecturing everybody else on lowering emissions and imposing a carbon tax on hard-working Canadians, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals are secretly using two … [Read more...]
Will Canada’s Battle for Property Rights Begin in Alberta?
Will the national battle for the inclusion of property rights in Canada’s constitution begin in Alberta? It will if Jason Kenney leads the United Conservative Party (UCP) to victory in the upcoming Alberta provincial election. “At the heart of our approach is the firm belief that property rights, including landowner rights, are inherent civil rights. What you are seeing … [Read more...]
In Canada “Hurt Feelings” Trump Actual Rights
Thomas Paine wrote, in one of his famous Cato Letters, the following statement: He who dares not offend cannot be honest. Thomas Paine lived in a time where honesty was a valued commodity. The notion that truth was not relevant never occurred to Paine and nor should it. In a sane and rational nation there is enough space in the room for two differing opinions. There isn’t … [Read more...]
Liberal Media Claims Another Scalp By Frank Hilliard
Mischa Popoff was fired last night as the BC Conservative candidate in Boundary-Similkameen for what the party called “insensitive and disrespectful comments” about the Missing Women Inquiry and single mothers. This followed an article in the Vancouver Sun that appeared on the Web last night and in the paper this morning. Here’s a longer quote on what the party found … [Read more...]
Mischa Popoff, a true conservative, runs for BC Conservative Party
Finally we have a true conservative running for a truly conservative party in a province that deeply needs a return to conservative principles. Both of the major parties have shown their moral failures, their lax practices and their lack of vision; it is time for a return to the standards of practice, morality and fiscal prudence we all thought was a norm in Canadian … [Read more...]
What do governments despise most? An Informed Citizenry.
[powerpress] Yesterday I shared with you a video clip from the HBO series “The Newsroom” in which news anchor Will McAvoy makes the bold (and true) statement that "America is NOT the greatest country in the world." While that may have been the most shocking part of the video for many people, it wasn't the most important. No, the most … [Read more...]
America is NOT the greatest country in the world.
"America is NOT the greatest country in the world... but it could be." I have to admit I was quite blown away to watch this short video clip from the HBO series "The Newsroom". It was forwarded to me by a friend who called it the most honest three minutes of television ever. I have to admit he is correct. Watch it for yourself. Be amazed that such truth and honesty … [Read more...]
Why I Do Not Like The Obamas – The Daily Rant by Mychal S. Massie
Mychal S. Massie is an excellent commentary writer. He is also black. That allows him, unlike me, to write scathingly about the hypocrisy of the Obama clan without being called a racist. Me, I'm just your average white guy, so anything I say that disparages the "Anointed One" clearly must have racist roots, right? Yeah, whatever... In his recent column Mychal Massie … [Read more...]
President Obama: $5 million to the Charity of Your Choice if you just provide your records
Donald Trump is many things, and even if you dislike the man intensely (as I do) you've got to give him credit for putting his money where his big mouth is. Trump just released a video offering President Obama an incredible deal. If Obama will release his college records and applications and his passport applications and records by October 31 at 5pm Eastern, Donald Trump … [Read more...]
Diamond Rio’s Uplifting and Inspirational Song In God We Still Trust
For the religious among us here is a lovely song that's been around a while but bears listening to again as we lead up to a US Presidential election where the values of the two candidates couldn't be more clear. In Obama we have a man who hates America and apologizes to the world for her success. In Romney we have a man who has character, integrity, moral fibre and a … [Read more...]
Former Obama Supporter: Not saying I’ll vote for Romney, but I’m NOT voting for Obama
I am sick and tired of politics! Over the last couple of years, there has been a lot of tension over politics, and that division has intruded into my relationship with family and friends -- particularly now with the upcoming election. In 2008, I voted for Obama. That was my right -- I am a good person and I voted for him for good reasons. But that decision has created … [Read more...]
Former Obama Supporter says what he really thinks about the Pretender-In-Chief after the Presidential Debate
Some days it's just too much to ask for... having the cameras rolling when someone says what they really mean. Here is a perfect example: after last night's Presidential Debate one of the audience members explained exactly what he thinks of Obama today. This from a man who voted for Obama just 4 years ago. … [Read more...]
The Cult of the Messiah and Obama’s Sanctification of Liberal White Guilt
The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance. He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is … [Read more...]
Only Morons praise vice as virtue and slam virtue as vice
It has been said many times by better men than I that we live in a world that praises vice and condemns virtue. Never was this more true than in a moronic editorial in the Huffington Post. Editorial writer (and idiot-in-chief) Will Newman condemns Mitt Romney as a presidential candidate because Romney has never been drunk. What???? This buffoon goes on for ages about … [Read more...]
Ottawa County Patriots’ Brand New Billboards (these guys are great!)
Jim Chiodo, President of the Ottawa County Patriots contacted me after he discovered my Sept. 23rd article on the fantastic work his organization is doing.

Ottawa County Patriots create awesome US Presidential Election billboards
The ability of some folks to simply do what needs to be done never ceases to amaze me. Take the folks at Ottawa County Patriots (http://www.ottawacountypatriots.org), a group of very smart and committed American Patriots who clearly love their country.
