Some serious Grit spinning these days...

Here is a knee-slapper article.

How does puny li’l Canada stop it?

It cannot. It can only capitulate to some odious demands.

Some silver fox with a brain has gotten involved in this pre-school and explained to the children that it is too close to the election to be boneheads. Give in and grovel in private, and then put a sunny spin to the little people the way the Grits have been doing for decades.

But the n00bs didn’t know that you only make pretend to be tough at home, and made a mess of things trying to thump their chests.

This is one big clean-up detail, as in, the sewer backed up in your basement and you are up to your knees in waste just as your air conditioning died and it is a scorcher outside. They are breaking out the Ozium and the ozone generator for this party, kids.

Will it work? No, more stuff is coming out from the sewer, and there comes a point when all the backdoor grovelling and concessions become obvious and people get a whiff of something foul.

The neglect of this feral regime went on for too long. Everything is disjointed and you cannot unring a bell. You need more than crisis PR at this point —and it is not coming any time soon…

A stupid stratagey, if true.

The Hill Times has an oblivious article about how the federal Liberals in Canada are dealing with the bricks in their plants.

They have a story to tell the people? Give me a break. Every blowhard bores the world with a “story.”

The Grits are patriarchal. They rode on the coattails of a dead Pierre Trudeau by proxy. His selfish and egotistical son is no Pierre and he hogged the limelight with his boring selfies. He has too many no-name rookies who never gained narrative traction, and the three who did: Freeland, Moreau, and McKenna, did not do a good job. Wilson-Raybould and Philpott did and they were kicked to the curb.

Oh gee, what kind of dumbass story do you have there?

The Grits do not get that it is too late. They have disposable rookies who are expendable and have no story to tell. They have the Jive Turkey, no one else, and turned out to be a mean and incompetent downer in this narrative. Freeland comes off as his long-suffering minion. No pop, no story worth telling. Heaven help us all.

The story is what people take drugs to escape from. A dysfunction house of cards. The more the Grits try to spin this as victories, the more people will see it is the kind of bullshit they puke on their Facebook pages so other middle class people do not feel superior and pity them.

Trudeau was perceived as being charmed and lucky. His nepotism brought in a truckload of assumptions and he turned out to be even more bumbling than the average Joe. If he is that bad, then people do not want to give him a free pass because they are not going to give another chance to someone who is just like them.

While it is too soon to call an election, I seriously doubt we will see the Grits win this one. They are just too gross. They need a serious overhaul and if they keep insist on having “stories”, they need someone who can follow a script in public and not go parading in culturally offensive garb out in the global stage as he abuses his cabinet ministers when they try to do the legal and right thing…

Political Fuckery in an Age of Propaganda.

This is a stupid thing to say:

Are we supposed to be gullible enough to assume that places that bought our steel just sat on their hands — or went to alternative sources, and won’t come back?

Life isn’t static or in a bubble. It moves. One setback brings with it a bunch of other troubles and the old scripts don’t work.

The federal liberals are in deep shit, and they cannot bank on the US’s abortion bullshit to frighten people into voting for them because there will be more dirt to contend with by the time the official election starts. Nor will CBC’s propaganda spin trick people into voting for them again. Nor can they bribe a dead profession.

The problem is more than just the Jive Turkey prime minister, but he is a prima donna who isn’t pleased when he cannot control his image. This means his motives will aways be to manipulate the optics and let everything else slide, and the Grits are stuck in a bygone era where they were the Government Party and could lead people by the nose because they had no other options.

Those days are gone. Abortion is not going to save the Grits. The lifting of tariffs is not going to save them, either.

They are charlatans at heart: they are not original or innovative. They coast on a status quo and have no idea about anything. Legalized weed did not catapult them. Neither will fear about abortion rights.

After all, the Grits had a whole term to codify those rights, and they never bothered; so it’s not as if women’s rights were ever a genuine priority for them.

Because it was never about feminism to Canada’s little Caesar: it was always about his image, and what pleases him. Politicians are never about the people. They are about themselves, but usually, they have the intelligence to know how to effectively pretend they do care. Jive Turkey isn’t that bright or capable.

You can see a major Liberal clean-up detail going on — and one so obvious that it is too dutifully following a script. This is a middle class middle manager job of it. That’s not a good sign. It means the real talent have walked away, and the C-listers are left. That bodes poorly for the country no matter what.

Canada had to give a lot of concessions in order to get the tariffs lifted for optics’ sake. You can use the agreement as toilet paper. This is a country in the hands of rank losers hoping a stoned populace will be too oblivious to know they are being played and will vote for them again.

The Left has been splintered, however, and there are more ghosts than SNC-Lavalin and the Mark Norman Debacle. Timing is everything and these exposed problems are a mere preface: not all of the dots have been placed to connect. An October surprise is in the cards.

The clean-up detail is too big and complex for the Grits to handle. They are used to coasting, not working. This election will be interesting in that the Grits will waste their resources running on a hamster wheel blindfolded. It will be a circus and a comedy filled with clowns, but when you get things because of your name, you miss the nuances of power, and using political fuckery as a strategy. In any case, little Caesar will not be pleased…

Hamilton City Hall's whining about "efficiencies." Please someone introduce them to reality.

This pissing contest between the brats at Hamilton City Hall and the Ford regime is one for the books. The only representative the city has in the government is Donna Skelly, someone the mayor has publicly dissed and treated patronizingly before she became an MPP.

Skelly is telling the city that they can trim their fat. She is absolutely correct. You see the nepotistic hires twirling their eyes in the bullshit jobs. Skelly had a short stint as a councillor in City Hall — and she would know.

Hamilton always shoots itself in the foot: they stick by the NDP no matter how they aren’t getting anywhere by it. When the city was a Liberal stronghold, its fortunes were far better. This last election showed that doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome truly was bonkers.

And now the expectant temper tantrums. The city lost Basic Income by voting NDP, and then having to bend to Conservative overlords. The city owes Kathleen Wynne an apology.

They also owe one to Skelly. She is the lone voice — and they keep spitting in her face. The mayor should do whatever it takes to make nice with her because things are about to get a lot worse for the city. The US tariffs may be lifted, but companies have had a chance to go elsewhere for their steel, and the delay was long enough to show that there are plenty of alternatives. There is nothing to cheer about here.

But while Hamilton whines how they have no fat to cut, they find all sorts of money to waste.

Screen Shot 2019-05-18 at 2.25.16 PM.png

Those utility boxes do not need to be beautified. There is a perfect example of waste, just as the city spend money in a stupid no-starter bod to woo Amazon to the city, as if.

A forensic accountant looking over the city’s books would be a great way to test the city’s theory. It is long overdue, but with its uppity attitude when it has no cards to play, shows just how clueless the overlords in town really are…

Oppressing freedom of speech, Canada-style.

Never let the government dictate how to think.

I believe in freedom of expression, even for vile trolls. I want to know what people think so that I am prepared and that scum aren’t swept under the rug.

But the Canadian federal regime wants a “digital charter” — Pierre Trudeau codified human rights with his charter, while his son Justin takes them away with his.

This is the equivalent of forbidding danger signs near cliffs and landmines. Censorship is tantamount to propaganda by omission: if we erase all those inconvenient rage puking of sickos, then people think things are safe and good, and they are neither.

But we have a cowardly government that is too lazy and stupid to march right into the eye of the storm and confront reality.

This “charter” helps no one but those who want to hide messes and then proclaim there isn’t anything bad happening…

This article in the Smithsonian magazine is an oldie, but a goodie, but then again, I have always been a fan of magic.

But this applies to other areas of life.

Like what to look for when you don’t want to believe that you are being played.

In my life, I have been courted by grifters. I have always been a disappointment to them. I look like an easy mark. I don’t pretend that I can’t get played — everyone can get played.

The difference is I study the dynamics of the grifter-pigeon relationship while others don’t.

Grifters are interesting. As Donald Trump said, they are smooth. Cute and cuddly with charm. They remember your name. They have a very good memory for names, faces, and events. They are warm. Some are endearing and sympathetic.

And they often have tragedy or some other trauma and act wounded. There is always some sort of scam going on, usually a combination of a greed scam (show your love by believing in me — and invest in my dreams) and pity scam (save me from myself because I had a bad childhood) where, if you are foolish enough to get on the hamster wheel, will suck you into a vortex of saviour and social worker wasting your resources on the con artist instead of yourself.

It is a bad deal.

Grifters always see themselves as being the most cunning person around. They leverage their bad childhoods into collateral to be used to gain things. They think they are entitled and owed something — that’s the fuel that makes them seething, petty, spiteful, and vindictive.

They always look chipper and upbeat. They seem polite until you cross them, then they blame you and won’t let go of a grudge. There is always a scam, a mask, a script, and an angle.

They are very snazzy dressers. Nothing but the best for them. Clothes are props, but so are people. They are to be paraded out to reassure people that they are very nice people who care and can be trusted.

They are always apologetic. They always have an entourage clean up their messes. They bank favours and pull strings. They know all the gossip and can exploit people with ease.

They use people as pawns, and they can size you up. They can secretly maneuver people on their game boards. They can play chess or pool with ease, and there is usually some little smirk on their face as if they are in on some private little joke.

They will often seemingly bring other people into their confidence — and those are the dupes and pigeons they exploit by turning them into faithful lackeys. People feel honoured to know the “real” person — and they think they are in on the ride, not being taken for it.

Nothing ever gets done with them, however. They are big talkers and dreamers, but they never actually deliver — or plan to deliver. They just want to get things and coast.

When they are young, they get away with a lot — a baby face will get you a lot of goodwill. People are protective of grifters who know how to play the part. You cannot save them: that’s all part of the act. They will give you sad doe eyes pretending to submit when things go awry.

Right now, we are in an Age of Propaganda, and that means we seek grifters by default. This penchant for taking style over substance has damage the Left’s brand and severely so. Urbane sophisticate is not going to prove you superior to the Right. The other side has political mastery — and they brawl, not bawl.

The biggest mistake women in Canada made was allowing the privileged white boy to call himself a feminist without actual cred. You want a feminist, get the angry woman who launches her campaign at the battered women’s shelter and demands to know why we have concentration camps for abused women.

But that’s real. It’s reality, truth, and uncomfortable. It is not polished. It’s raw. It’s not snootily having some delusion that we are enlightened or progressive.

Once we allowed a non-feminist to ride on the coattails of feminism, once he was exposed as a poseur, he didn’t just damaged his own brand or just his party’s brand, but the feminist brand. If your psychographic is incapable of knowing who is real and who is fake, you lose face.

You don’t just desperately try to take anyone who’ll have you in order to exploit you. You cannot settle for anything or anyone.

There are too many brutes in suits exploiting people who never study their ways or ask hard questions. Dreams for the future cannot come true unless you face the nightmare of reality. The path of utopia never came following grifters or buying their hype, and the sooner that truth is grasp, the more likely a better world can be built.

But it all depends on whether people truly want freedom — or merely wish to pretend that they do…

To the politically illiterate who are invoking this propaganda poster in response to the abortion laws...

Stop it.

zekj5rykz8711.jpg

First of all, throwing a fit on the Facebook will not change a thing. Laws do not get repealed that way. Get off your motherfucking ass, and get informed before doing something that will actually alter your environment.

Second of all, the law was passed in a state legislature. Not a federal one. Having Hillary as president would not have altered a thing. Do not be ignorant. Do not be stupid. Do not pretend that you would have had a liberal paradise when two thirds of the governors voted in were conservative in 2016. The two are separate entities. You are not being clever when you do not even know how your own country’s political system works — so don’t be surprised that you aren’t getting things your own way…

Canadian journalists begged for fascism...they are just about to get it. Be careful what you beg for, suckers.

When you have lazy trolls pretend to be journalists, they can’t actually pull it off, and like other sheltered brats, they went to Daddy Government to give them free money.

Not only will they not see much more than pennies, they opened the door to fascist regime tactics.

We are now getting an Approved Media List.

We have a regime with no empirical data or experience decreeing what will be considered approved.

This is very bad:

Federal agencies will publish an A-list of newspapers and websites deemed reliable under a multi-million dollar subsidy program, the Department of Finance yesterday told the Senate national finance committee. Subsidies to federally-approved news media invite government meddling in a free press, cautioned one senator.

This is worse:

An unnamed cabinet-appointed group will decide which media qualify for subsidies. “The government will decide whether or not to change certain criteria,” said Maude Lavoie, Finance Canada director general of business tax programs.

And this is just plain stupid:

“I’m worried here you have criteria, you’ll have to jump those; selection committees appointed by the government – we’re intruding on the freedom of the press,” said Andreychuk. “It may not be our intention; it’s the survival of newspapers. But we’re going to be creating opportunities for others to come in, and we may not be really helping those we intended to in the first place.”

…“we all want to encourage the survival of the press, whether it’s in a small town or elsewhere, but if we start down this road, with these criteria, with government setting that criteria and interpreting that criteria, I think we’re on the wrong road,” said Andreychuk.

Journalism didn’t survive: it was always an illusion. It was never empirical or serious. What we always had was an ideal, not the real thing.

We should be smart enough and brave enough to have an alternative to journalism. This version obviously has flaws too big to be functional. It was always based on a model where common people did not have access to a broad audience. When they did, all of the glaring holes and flaws in journalism stood out and people lost faith in that institution.

The federal Liberals are horrid. They are scam artists, not visionaries, innovators, or thinkers. It is not as if we have a party that actually has vision and an ability to take risks. Bribe, break, and control seems to be the only game the federal regime knows how to play, and now that they have their mitts on a dead profession, we will see just how manipulative they can be with an inert press that should have made big changes when they still had the chance…

Why does Canada have so many pantywaist politicians in its ranks?

Justin Trudeau is the King of the Pantywaists, and now that the hate for him is sanctioned, it is now running rampant. The Toronto Sun is having a field day:

Justin Trudeau — who, angelic visage notwithstanding, is a vengeful and petty little man — went after Norman, viciously. 

In other words, he is a pantywaist: the conniving little twerp who thinks he is cunning and getting away with shit, not realizing the family name and the pity factor gave him his free pass. Everyone saw what was happening: they just let it slide.

But Canada seems to load up on vapid twerps. Like Ontario MPP Sam Oosterhoff who call the cops on people who have opinions that do not align with his undeveloped and unrealistic fantasies, and then has the nerve to take taxpayer money as a pay check and not have respect for them while puking sexist garbage:

"We have survived 50 years of abortion in Canada and we pledge to fight to make abortion unthinkable in our lifetime."

Spoken like a true motherfucker. I will think whatever I please, you little pantywaist. Your weak little brain is no match for mine.

But perhaps we are looking at this the wrong way: why are we producing tyrannical little man-children who think they can make everyone march lockstep to their tyrannical and unscientific decrees?

If women’s reproductive rights are on the table, then we should have men’s reproductive rights on the table, too. We should force men to father children with whomever the state decrees. Or force vasectomies on them, too.

RKdeFfGZ23BSse20652JTHcC_640x360.jpg

Justin Trudeau hijacked the democratic system and ruined the career of Jody Wilson-Raybould on his decree. Oosterhoff is of the same unimpressive ilk.

That is the reason you do not vote for boys whose families push them and prop them up. You vote for people who actually had to work and earn their way to becoming something real.

As a taxpayer, I resent both of these pantywaists. They draw a pay check on my dime, and have done fuck all for me. They do not represent my views, but they will gladly take my money to attend things that I would never approve of.

Left, right, it never matters. We are a nation run by jive turkeys. Ones who do not respect their elders, women, people with different life requirements. Just their own worthless asses. That’s what this country has in power.

I am not impressed. I do not get intimidated, let alone beguiled by dofo yokels in suits.

And that’s why I am a political atheist. When you have trash in power, no matter what they do, it will stink…

Charges conveniently dropped against Vice-Admiral Mark Norman...tidying up before the next federal election...

Considering all the dirt that was going to be exposed, a clean-up detail was in order.

This doesn’t bode well for the federal Liberals as they have vaults of sins, and are very vulnerable. Norman was a high-profile case, but that’s how the Grits do business.

The Green Party has now emerged as the spoiler. The NDP is yesterday’s party, and that also doesn’t bode well for not only the Grits, but for Hamilton, a town that has banked its fortunes on the party for years. The city is whining about not getting another nine million dollars to waste. They are in for a very rude awakening. Their troubles haven’t even begun.

And neither has the federal Grits. They have too many holes to plug up, and their fearless leader is the global nerd. That trip to India will cost him his job. People are looking for any reason to turf and they will turf him hard.

The Greens are in the same place as Jack Layton’s NDP was during his last hurrah: they have more than a good chance of becoming the Official Opposition. Elizabeth May can play her cards right. She has public goodwill, and unlike her three competitors, she doesn’t comes off as a middle manager for some boutique advertising firm in Toronto. They have two seats federally now. Their provincial counterparts in PEI are the official opposition. Even Ontario government has a lone Green MPP in its ranks. Persistence pays, and May can push the party to break another serious barrier. Once upon a time, the Reform Party did just that to the Tories, and the Greens are poised to do the same to the Grits.

Sweeping Norman under the rug won’t matter one way or another. There is always something grungy to take out of the Liberals’ vault and parade it around with the appropriate facial expression of disgust. What the Greens have is their political greenness: they simply to do not the stench of the past to bog them down…

Watching the Federal Liberal Implosion...

That Prince Edward Island went to the Tories and the Greens in the provincial election is truly stunning.

By the time the federal election comes, it will be a full scale slaughter: when you can do no wrong, no scandal touches you, but when you can do no right, everything will be an excuse to dethrone you.

The last-minute clean-up detail is a real knee-slapper. Canada is taking back their garbage because the President of the Philippines literally had to threaten to declare war to get action.

And now that Bill Blair ignore a constituent who is now going run against him in the next election, he has come up with a grand and glorious bullshit story that makes no sense.

You didn’t see the email because it went to spam? Really?

As someone who had to look after a severely disabled relative, I can say you get ignored by politicians of all affiliations and levels when you call or write. They figure you’ll be too sick or busy to go and vote, so screw you. Blair just didn’t think it would come back and bite him.

The smarmy ways of the Grits has now reached a peculiar tipping point, but everything began to backfire once Justin Trudeau went on his vanity junket in India. He was supposed to be what Canadians thought was “cool”, not embarrassing. Not dad-wore-pale-blue-socks-with-sandals-and-plaid-polyester-brown-pants-at-my-wedding humiliating. It broke the spell. He is just like your dad, or uncle, or husband who does dumbass things in public and you want to smash objects against your head.

It went downhill from there.

There will be more crap coming out in the open in the next few months — more cringeworthy crap because the talent who made the Grits look good in front of the little people are abandoning ship. Without the layer of protection, the gaudy truth comes out.

And we haven’t even begun…

We have no journalists...only propagandists pretending to be journalists. And a global humbling is fast approaching...

Remember when journalists were lying to you and told you how WikiLeaks were Russian agents?

If you have forgotten because you have Middle Class Selective Amnesia Syndrome, I have taken the liberty of giving you screenshots of the liars and what they puked in 2016.

And now all of a sudden, when journalists thought they could ride on Julian Assange’s coattails and lie once again how they are just like him, and how great WikiLeaks is, they are trying any and all propaganda to save their worthless selves because their incestuous narcissistic award-giving to themselves isn’t doing a thing, either.

Too late. Your word is garbage and so are you. You are now desperately trying to spin the Mueller report, flat-out making up stuff as you spin and distort, but you are nothing but propagandists for lazy Democrats who have absolutely no platform or plan to have one and are using that report as a misdirection so people do not see how they just want money and power by being leeches on the taxpayer’s dime as they try to convince those same taxpayers that they would be destitute without their meddling. They are grifters and scam artists who are threatening women with rape and forced baby-producing by proxy via the brutish Right if they don’t behave and vote for them.

Here is an idea: I don’t vote for either of you losers. You’re all scum. Don’t you dare threaten me with war propaganda.

Journalism keeps getting more shrill and pathetic, but I guess the stench of a rotten corpse is rancid to begin with. The martyrdom narrative is pure bullshit. They are still losing their jobs in droves. For a reason. When you lie, you don’t deserve to be employed. Fuck you.

We are risking our lives for you narrative is bullshit. Memo to journalists: reporting on Mortal Kombat 11 isn’t actually dangerous.

Trump was exonerated, and we still have people who see it and are exasperated by the press having a vendetta that is pathological and out of control, but I agree with Noam Chomsky of what is going to happen.

But I will take it further. The Left’s temper tantrums and hubris is costing them election after election. The Right surge is happening precisely because the Left are trying to shame the world into believing their opinions to be reality, and they are not. Limousine liberals don’t know reality; so their bullshit looks ridiculous and so far off the mark that they end up looking like nerds and loons. The Right’s opinions are not reality, either, but people want to stick it to the Left for their insistence on being at the top of their pecking order to humble them.

So what you have is two groups of people trying to impose their will to rig things so they always win.

You also have Big Tech who is trying to play Big Brother with their fascist censorship garbage, known as GIFCT. However, this is not a sign of their gaining power, but that they are rapidly losing clout. The Internet is a shadow of its former self.

I am now finessing my books, but that is not focus-intensive. The research takes much more than the actual writing, but the resources online are not one tenth they were when I wrote my last book When Journalism was a Thing in 2017and that was not one hundredth of what it was when I was writing Don’t Believe It!: How lies become news and OutFoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s war on journalism…back in 2004.

That is breath-taking. Here you have all of these little propaganda mills begging for donations, and they have shit to offer. They are erasing their archives of old articles, and even library databases are a shadow of their former selves. That is not evolving, but regressing.

Wired thinks the censorship leaning of Big Tech should scare us, but I don’t agree. Big Tech is FUBAR. The Internet is a warehouse of garbage. Traditional journalism is fucked, too. What no one else has the courage to admit is that we now have conditioned people to think their beliefs are divine truth and reality. They no longer seek any information at all because they think they have all the answers with their uninformed folksy bullshit. When you have people try to indoctrinate you by thinking an unverified meme poster proves that they are right over the person with front line experience, expertise and exhaustive research, you know it is game over. Big Tech pandered to the point of shooting themselves in the foot. They are outsmarting themselves into oblivion.

GIFCT is a desperate push to salvage the Left, and it will not work. The Left are getting crushed on all sides and deservedly so. You cannot bribe people into supporting you because it is never enough and they always want more. Kathleen Wynne found that out the hard way. Doug Ford is shrewdly taking away the Ontario Left’s three veins: he slashed municipal seats so the cheap way of NDP and Liberal candidates to get media attention and incubate a voter base has been hobbled. He is setting the bar to sue the Ontario government so high so that he is now cutting off the narrative publicity and propaganda vein of misusing the courts to shame the government. Teachers and activists used this gambit too many times because they know they give the press an easy story where they can look sad in front of the camera and whine no matter how much money gets thrown at them. He takes this vein out, and they lose a “newsworthy” stunt to moral-shame the Tories. He is drastically slashing the public sector, and healthcare and education — the two collectives who still have good jobs and a strong union to throw tantrums and get away with it, are going to be broken. I will not be surprised if education doesn’t get privatized in some significant way so that teachers no longer pose a threat.

But that’s not the Right’s doing. That’s the Left always using the same gambits thinking the other side won’t notice and crack the code. Worse, if your prosperity hinges on working in the public sector where you think you have no risks and complete security, your world will collapse because you got cocky and slagged people who are being paid less and have to toil more, and they will remember your snooty attitude and get their revenge on you at the ballot. No amount of shaming and tantrums is going to save you when it’s personal.

Journalists cannot be trusted with seeing reality because they have the same blinders. They have been indoctrinated and march lockstep brainlessly not seeing that the side they picked are not actual thinkers with a moral compass. They are short-sighted and socialism is not going to save them because you need money to burn through and when you have leeches who just take and refuse to give, the black hole will swallow you up. Trying to brainwash people through shaming, narrative, or censorship isn’t going to work because all of these leftist governments are getting kicked out in droves, too, meaning it has the opposite effect.

Politico has always been propaganda garbage and sophistry, for instance. They puke propaganda, and the jealous sots are trying to smear the Intercept — which actually has factual value in a pathetic attempt to destroy anything that goes against their narrative. They should call this trash can Pollutico.

Here is a memo to you losers: the “Democratic civil war” as you misnamed it, isn’t fuelled by the Intercept but by a bunch of spoiled and manipulative rich psychopaths who want to control people and use a ruse of morality to do it, but since they have no clue what is moral, they have to fake it, and then the low-class antics get exposed.

Speaking of garbage that has been spawned from Pollutico, Julia Angwin’s pathetic attempt at starting a propaganda machine called the Markup resulted in her getting turfed before it even debuted. She got canned because her bullshit ideas on “data journalism" about technology — snake oil for the modern ages, kids — was nixed for flat-out propaganda and lobbying disguised as “advocacy.”

When you have rich liberal meddlers give you $23 million dollars, they want propaganda that pushes their interests. Not news. This was to be liberal propaganda to try to control Big Tech, nothing more. “Advocacy” is doublespeak for “partisan propagandistic lobbying”, nothing more. The Left have been co-opted by hucksters with raging egos whose con games all hinge on feeding those cancerous egos as they shame people into doing stupid things that will bleed them dry. This entire episode is a sad joke as the little parasites have jumped shipped. This is why journalism got destroyed, and then you have clueless egomaniacs such as Andrew Yang try to suck up to journalists saying he wants to save a dead profession so they’ll keep writing about him. Sure, right, likely story. Warren Buffet sees newspapers as toast? Dude, that ship has sailed years ago. The ashes have already been blown away.

But the propaganda is all over the place. We have the Canadian Liberal regime planning to use propaganda to suggest that white supremacists — who all conveniently come from Alberta, are going to pose a threat to the jittery middle class…so the natural conclusion is to keep voting for the rancid Grits. Nice try, but when Hillary Clinton tried that with her smart-ass deplorables comment, it cost the idiot the presidency. No wonder other Western nations think Canada is bonkers with their shrill and dire fake warnings.

But the Left are getting pummelled with their games. Doug Ford has realized where they are getting their money and is cutting them off at the knees. The Ontario Liberals figured out the best way to hide how weak the province was finding itself in was to give just enough money to the borderline poor to think they were Middle Class and just enough graft to the upper end Middle Class to think that they were rich. Have a nice and fat public sector making well over a six figure salary doing bullshit and give in to their demands with some fake resistance to make them feel big and powerful. Doug Ford didn’t get a single one of their votes, and then just pulled the rug out from under them. He is actually showing just how weak and precarious they were all along.

He has nothing to worry about. You can’t bribe people using other people’s money — they will always scream for more, while the people you are using to fund your racket will not tolerate it. It’s what destroyed the former Yugoslavia and every other socialist and communist regime. The Left have painted themselves in a corner because they keep going to extremist ideologies trying to be completely different than the Right, backstabbing innocent people when they cannot control and exploit them — and then trying to claim the people they betrayed as one of their own when things spiral out of control.

I am certain poor Julian Assange had no idea how badly he’d be used, exploited, betrayed, maligned, and vilified. Journalists treated him like the devil as they broke him before trying to exploit that same broken man as their puppet by now pretending they think he is a saint. Too late, assholes, you already locked in your answers in 2016.

He was hopelessly naive, however. He honestly believed that if he told the middle class how they were being manipulated, they would rise up as they became enlightened. He had no idea it is the middle class who set these rigs up, exploiting both the rich and the poor so they don’t have to do any of the dirty work themselves or actual have to take a risk and then look foolish if they were gasp! wrong or failed. Then they can pretend they are smarter, wiser, and more moral and interesting than anyone else as they pretend they are keeping their hands clean. Assange rubbed their noses in their reality, and they turned on him for rocking the boat. He had no clue and no chance.

If he wanted to change the world, he should have filmed middle class people feeding their kids for free with shitty Costco food samples and then bragging about the smartphone they bought on their Facebook pages, and then called them nerds. That would have started a motherfucking revolution.

Big Tech pandered to that same class telling them how rich and famous they’d become, and then everything exploded and got out of control, and now they are trying to put the demon back into Hell. No dice, let alone a paradise.

Big changes are coming, and for the Left, the shocks are just beginning. They are decaying faster than they should be decaying, and that always hints at some internal crisis because someone who did all the work and thinking for them either left or was underestimated and kicked to the curb or died.

And the middle class are quietly hedging their bets on the Right, while the National Post’s solution is to drug everyone with microdoses of LSD so that people are too stoned to care about the world collapsing around them (memo to you losers: emotional apathy is not a good thing to have: it means you have no sensitivity to your surroundings. It is a coward’s lazy escape).

I see the games of the sucker circus, and I still chronicle them. I am not naive like Assange, however. I register my observations, but I have my own reasons for it that have nothing to do with changing the world for others or doing their thinking for them. I’m not your mother.

By the way, remember when journalism had the courage to admit their faults and not puke bullshit about how great they are?

No?

Try this Atlantic article from 1996.

But that was when journalism still was a thing…

Fourteen years ago today, OutFoxed: Rupert Murdoch's war on journalism was published.

Disinfo is no longer in business, but the book is still around.

of.jpg

As I am still toiling away, I would like to take a breather and point out some of the fuckery going on in the press.

Like this bullshit piece from Quartz:

A new Twitter account is outing shoddy reporting in science stories

You misogynistic motherfuckers, some white guy starts a Twitter feed, and you give him free publicity about showing shoddy reportage about science?

I wrote two books chronicling the same thing and showing how to spot it, and I did not get a mention.

Don’t Believe It!: How lies become news was published in March 2005 and I had an entire chapter on this problem.

When Journalism was a Thing also extensively went into this problem last year, and you ignored it.

The man posts five seconds on Twitter, and you drool and slobber all over his ass as if he did something original. Go fuck yourselves.

And speaking of fuckery, boy, someone with big boy pants must have taken over the propaganda arm of the federal Liberals.

The National Post are being dutiful little minions and are doing free propaganda for them:

'Inconsistent with democratic values': Internal conflict flared over Jody Wilson-Raybould's controversial last act as justice minister

An internal memo claims Crown lawyers were being overruled and told not to use certain defences to appear less adversarial toward Indigenous plaintiffs

Really? JWR was your pick, assholes. That was the culture of control you cultivated. She was well within the brand of political reasoning — and you wait until your little SNC-Lavalin scandal got this far away from you to try to take swipes at her?

You losers do realize the more you slag her, the worse you sound, right? You either mistreated her, which speaks poorly of your prime minister, or you picked and propped up a lemon for years, which speaks even more poorly of you. If you had class — which, by the way, you don’t — you would be better off copping to the former rather than the latter.

Do you idiots realize this has now gotten way, way bigger than two ousted female MPs? You are all going to get hit with a bigger scandal or three before October, and it won’t matter. It doesn’t even matter now. You all sound like vindictive spouses going through a divorce and come off as petty shits. Get a crisis management team and get over yourselves.

And as for the National Propaganda — stop being stenographers for the Man. No wonder you guys bleed money.

But it goes beyond the childish and psychopathically abusive nose-tweaking. The Grits are desperate and reek badly of it with their vast conspiracy theories of political interference being floated as a possible bogeyman for them to frighten the little people into voting for them.

Dumbasses, here is the memo: all countries meddle in the affairs of other countries. That is why Julian Assange had to be silenced by bribing the regime who gave him refuge with loans — who knows what drugs were given to the guy during his exile to discredit him, but WikiLeaks released information that showed the the “political interference” happened everywhere all the time, and the Left sound like Loopy Lous trying to make it sound as if meddling happened only with Trump, and we have people in the Liberal Party sound like paranoid potheads warning that other countries will meddle in our election.

Yeah, the way you stick your pointy little noses in theirs. Fuck you. For a group of blowhards who preach about globalization, why would this even bother you? Globalization precisely means the right to meddle in other countries’ affairs. That’s like wanting to fuck everybody and still be a virgin. Morons.

One last observation: Peter Mackay’s column in the Toronto Sun seems to have a very sly, but nasty jab to Justin Trudeau:

No one is fooled by the crafted image, stage-managed appearances, bold bromides, soaring rhetoric and flashy wardrobe; the stuff of an Old Spice commercial spoofing itself for effect.

The Old Spice reference doesn’t fit — unless you recall that Matthew Perry’s stepdad was the Old Spice guy in commercials…and that Perry boasted in public how he used to beat up Trudeau in school when they were kids.

Trudeau could never compete with Perry in the acting sphere, so go show up the guy in politics where you are completely unqualified. Take that, Matthew Perry!

That’s all for now. I am averaging a chapter a day, and I am picking up speed. Propaganda-busting gets my juices flowing. I could never stand liars because they are arrogant cowards to the core.

Ciao!

How the federal Liberals are handing the Tories a campaign hook.

I

When Donald Trump ran for president, he had his mantra aside from Make America Great Again.

Lock her up.

And Clinton made that fairly easy for her rival to use that hook to radicalize his base.

But the federal Liberals are making that hook for their rivals.

This commentary has got it all wrong:

ANALYSIS: Biggest peril for Team Trudeau is that Liberals are at war with each other

No, the biggest peril is for a rival to campaign on a promise to open an investigation into SNC-Lavalin if he is elected. Lock him up.

The Tories or NDP can promise to open up what the Liberals keep shutting down. The Grits are leaking everything else but won’t be open about their SNC-Lavalin fuckery.

This election can get very nasty very fast, the more the Grits try to contain it, the more people will want to open that vault of sins to see what’s so exciting in there, giving the Tories the perfect hook to set off their first grenade…

Criminals using Canadian real estate to launder money? You don't say!

Duh.

How else does a real estate market here go up that much when a sizeable percentage of people in this country are in precarious employment and/or work for minimum wage?

It never made an ounce of sense.

But the press always hyped up the market, never questioning who or what is behind the spike.

I did. It always seriously worried me. And it is a serious problem. The mortgage “stress tests” are not a problem: it is who can afford to buy shacks for a couple of million dollars — or why would they want to do so.

This is biting Canada — and it painted a completely dishonest picture of our economic health. With our ongoing problems, a little nudge can easily cause catastrophic outcomes…

The Federal Liberals stoop to benign childish tattle-telling. Really, kids? Really?

While Donald Trump does a victory dance on journalists’ faces, Justin Trudeau is not so lucky. He is coming off as a real nerd in this whole SNC-Lavalin scandal.

Not having anything real to smear Jody Wilson-Raybould, one of his minion proxies had to think long and hard with the single brain cell they have in their empty head and tattled that the Prime Minister did not like her recommendation for Supreme Court pick because the person wasn’t politically correct enough and chose someone else.

Wilson-Raybould had this response to the childish swipe:

Wilson-Raybould denied to CTV News that there was any conflict over the Supreme Court appointment and said that the selection of a new Supreme Court judge is ultimately a decision for the prime minister.

“In this process there are typically CONFIDENTIAL conversations and communications -- back and forths between the PM and the AG on potential candidates for appointment,” she said in a email.

“I do however find it extremely worrisome why you are even asking such questions and where you received any such information. Commentary / reporting in this regard with respect to a SCC appointment(s) could compromise the integrity of the appointments process and potentially sitting Justices.”

This isn’t an actual scandal. This isn’t dirt. In fact, this isn’t even an actual thing. This is how my mom and I debate what restaurant to go to for lunch.

This is sad. This is rubbish. Who cares? Governments are supposed to smack each other around and then hammer out a solution. That’s how adults in power roll. What’s wrong with you?

This has to be a leak from Camp Trudeau: who else would think this was some sort of dirt: Ooo! She disagreed with the prime minister on something once! That proves something because the prime minister is always perfect!

Get over yourself, kids, and get some grown-up in there to manage you before people realize just how emotionally-stunted the brats they voted in...

Federal Liberals banking on old patriarchal ruses: Put up or shut up? Nice try, but on a rigged board, go for another option.

When you have bootlickers and minions, you think you are always in the right and when you have a board rigged to reward your noncompoopity, your perceptions of reality can get in your way when some who does not fall for the rules and script decides to play a different game with you.

So here were have another Liberal MP, Judy Sgro, try a very transparent strategy based on the sink or swim logical fallacy: She is telling renegades Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott to “put up or shut up” by going on a booby-trapped rigged board of Parliament to divulge everything they know.

This is a equivalent of murder mysteries where someone is given an anonymous note and told to meet the killer at a certain spot without telling anyone of the meeting — and to bring or destroy the note. Duh.

They should not actually fall for this ruse for many reasons, mostly because the other Grits would have already formed a counter-plan and are ready to undermine them through optics and other political strategies because they know the rigs and the rules and have more political experience than either of the first-terms MPs.

And they should call it out as a poor-man’s ruse, and decline it. It is a set up, nothing more.

And Sgro’s pathetic and misogynistic narrative how this is somehow some sort of personal vendetta against the Jive Turkey is laughable. Do try not to waste taxpayers’ money being so primitive, Ms. Sgro.

The Grits are dysfunctional and are turning on each other, trying every old trick in the book to salvage their operations. And you know how bad it is when they have to drag the old guard out and try to clean up the mess. Maclean’s magazine misreads the signs, however:

Enlisting the longtime Liberal party loyalist as a ‘change-maker’ offers yet another example of a government losing its optics mojo

They never had the mojo: what they had was a press primed to follow the old scripts for them. They thought the Prime Minister would be an ally to them, forgetting that during his most impressionable age, both of his parents were torn to shreds in the press for different reasons. He played them, plain and simple, because they were playing him. He set up the narrative of equality for all races and genders, and then when it came to practicing what he preached, he choked while the press dutifully followed the script, and everything became misaligned.

He was never that clever. Neither was Gerald Butts. Everyone was merely following the script until two female MPs went against its structure. And then people’s true intellectual shrewdness was exposed. Nothing more.

The Grits are in trouble. They know it. If the opposition parties were in better shape, they would be wiped off the map on election day.

But it can still happen. All bets are off, except that the old narratives are backfiring, causing nuclear light shows in their wake…

Federal Liberals try to stop the bleed, but this is an opponent who does not play by their rules.

The federal Liberal regime will us the budget tomorrow to bribe Canadian media into silence, which is silly because journalism here collapsed.

Because had it been strong, the Grits would have been in much bigger trouble with more resignations. Don’t kid yourself.

They will be bribing Millennials who always want more; so that will misfire.

Besides, the bribing comes too far away to make any impact. Kathleen Wynne tried that gambit and lost power.

They are trying to prevent Google from exposing their corruption. They have lawyered up.

Michael Wernick fell on his sword.

And the Grits are shutting down any inquiry.

Normally, this heavy clean-up detail would be enough to satisfy the cowardly sheeple into forgetting all the bad things, but this isn’t a normal or domestic assault.

This game is something beyond the Liberals’ ability to contain.

Because things have been getting progressively worse. It began with minor insults and now it is about corruption.

This isn’t a domestic attack because neither the Tories nor the NDP would have chosen the man-child leaders that they did had they had the capability.

And neither do the Grits. That they lost Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott isn’t strategically devastating in that they are both rookie MPs. The loss of Gerald Butts is a little more distressing, but he isn’t a genuine brilliant strategist: he is a hanger-on who knows the trick of latching on to someone in power and then failing upward. This can be embarrassing and a blow to morale, but it isn’t fatal.

What is more troublesome is Wernick’s departure. He has been in the game for almost four decades, regardless of regime. That he couldn’t handle it tells you just how serious this game happens to be.

You lose too many promoted pawns and you are set further back. People get jittery and they aren’t going to stick their necks out for you. The Grits have suffered far bigger losses than what their trying to do will repair.

And this game is far from over. No one is going to keep going after you and then just let go after they seriously weakened you. There are too many skeletons in this regime’s closet because they saw how weak the domestic opposition was and how fawning the press were and thought they could do anything with impunity and considering how many rookies are in this regime, you can imagine all the frat house antics that have been going on.

Except someone else has been keeping score and is slowing dripping problems one by one until there is enough to cause a flood. People are being primed and conditioned to go against the previous narrative about the Prime Minister, and so far, it is working perfectly. His credibility has been seriously damaged, and one or two more strategic airings of reality can make him seem as honest as Olivia Jade…
