  1. Just spent the last 10 minutes yelling at my grandma for voting for Joe Biden. Then, after leaving the cemetery, I went and had a spot of breakfast. ---YouTube Comment

  2. This is exactly the sort of smug, triumphant sort of post which makes so many people despise urban liberals. Crowing over something they actually know almost nothing about, just because THEIR guy did it. Even if their guy had almost nothing to do with it. They're like Trumpists in that way. Trump signs something put before him and they all shout in praise of his towering accomplishment. So we see how the political zealots of the left and political zealots of the right are mirrors of each other. For the record, Trudeau opposed Brexit. His attitude about redoing the trade deal afterward sou

  3. The U.S. has certainly seen this before, but it has never had the media bandwidth to amplify and fight the ideology battles on such a scale down to the individual level. Partisanship has been democratized with technology that is far more efficient and penetrating than plodding letters to the editor. There are no more barriers to media entry, and the more partisan and inflammatory, the better to drive clicks and responses that drive even more views and clicks. Hard, objective news has become passe and underfunded because the old revenue model is broken.

  4. What concerns me is the increasing lack of tolerance towards the opposing side. That Twitter, Facebook and big tech are suppressing conservative support of a sitting president I’ve just never seen before. Wordpress just told a conservative group that they have a limited amount of time to find another provider because their views don’t line up with Wordpress. YouTube takes down videos of people talking about the election with a conservative viewpoint. A great deal of pressure was brought to bear on the Trump legal team and as a result some of his lawyers have resigned. Even the wo

  5. Most Americans, including myself, do not hate Canada. If anything, we are guilty of being quite indifferent towards Canada without a complete understanding of how the national relationships have evolved over time. It is far more interesting to hear a Canadian (i.e. this YouTube video) explain the evolution of Canadian nationalism from a very Canadian perspective, without the tactical poop flinging across the border for fun and games. Canada's shift from right-wing to left-wing nationalism is fascinating and consistent with the changing domestic and foreign circumstances it has en

  6. Well, Canadians (and Americans) do find accommodation at the personal and practical level across millions of lives, but the aggregate nationalist identity still demands a purposeful separation and rejection to exist. This is not just a Canadian attribute, but Canada's history made it much more likely and enduring, and even persists domestically with Quebec. The Americans initially defined their national identity as fiercely not British, but this gave way to an American nationalism that was no longer challenged or threatened by a declining British Empire, with the United States creating

  7. It's fascinating to watch people refuse to accept reality when it's clear as day in front of them. It's no coincidence the covid-is-a-hoax people are the same ones who claim the election is a fraud. They have a degenerative brain disorder that only lets them believe the facts they want to believe. They invented their own little realities and then blame the media for telling them the truth. It would be funnier if it weren't so disturbing.

  8. So you feel that all political leaders should be required to go to gay pride parades? Have I got that right? What about Muslims and Hindus and Orthodox Jews? What else? Attend BLM protests and bend the knee? Is that a requirement too? The Harper government DID, in fact, fund contraceptives, just not abortion. And I'm still waiting for you to show me how they forced their religious views on you.

  9. Westcan, I get all your sentiments, I'm just saying the timing is not good. You can say the same thing on Nov 10 or Nov 12. There's a time and place for everything. Veteran and defence issues are at the bottom of Trudeau's priorities for this country clearly. If you actually read the budgets this gov will dedicates 70 pages to gender (feminist) issues and 3 pages to veteran support issues. I mean literally the last budget I read it was 3 pages. People risk their lives for this country and then live the rest of their lives with mental and physical injuries, we can give them more than

  10. Has anyone noticed that the PA Appeals court has ruled in favour Trump's legal team? They ruled that Secretary of State, Kathy Brookvar did not have the authority to extend the deadline for vote-by-mail participants to show their ID by a certain date. This is something that was going to be a slam dunk overrule by any court higher up the chain, so it's basically just the PA court trying to not look foolish by ruling the other way and getting immediately overturned. Still, it's a small victory. Many more to come.

  11. So the news organization that couldn't accept Trump as president now has it on good authority that no fraud occurred, eh? Well they should be happy to have it looked at by the courts then. Trump will look even more foolish when this election gets certified.

  15. Two things. It's not up to some manager to decide what's before the courts. Also, this is just one of many possible crimes that was committed, and no doubt the Trump legal team is not tipping their hand to reveal all of the issues that have been found. Out here in the cheap seats, we simply aren't privy to the whole picture and what the Legacy Media is telling us is only what they want us to think.

  16. Well luckily there's nothing suspicious at all about the timing of this announcement, less than 2 days after Biden won the election. Because as we all know, drug companies make big discoveries at 6am on a Monday morning a few hours before most people show up to work and markets open.

  19. I want our neighbors to the south to enjoy prosperity, liberty and to thrive in every positive way. Since Trump took office in 2016 something truly nefarious started and hasn't stopped. I don't know of any other democratically elected leader who has had to endure such a constant vicious barrage on a daily basis not to mention the hate directed against his family. It has been an ongoing coup from day one and I wonder how anyone could stand up to all this abuse without cracking.Whatever his faults are, I truly believe he deeply loves his country and he is a fighter through and through.

  20. Riiiight. So when you saw Trump say "MS-13 are animals" and then you saw people on CNN say "Trump referred to immigrants as animals" you didn't notice that was a complete lie? You weren't duped by the lack of access to a more reliable source, they actually showed you all the evidence that you needed in order to know that they were lying. You were just incredibly stupid if you didn't catch it. When they brought up Lisa Swetnick's accusation of "I went to ten Kavanaugh gang-rape parties" and turned Avanatti into a hero overnight, I laughed. I instantly knew it was just stupid. No

  21. Biden's not going to win. It'll probably take 3 or 4 weeks for the fraud cases to work their way up the courts, and the boom gets lowered on the Dem fraudsters. Be patient and let the left do their dancing until then.

  23. Canadian nationalism has been declared extinct by its present prime minister, but Canada is far from being a "post national state". After methodically describing the history and evolution of Canadian nationalism through today, this chap concludes that Canada is forever doomed to define itself as "not American" because the newer left-wing brand of Canadian nationalism, just like the previous right-wing, pro-British brand of nationalism, demands exactly that. Hating America at some level is essential to this exercise and political framework, and has been from the very beginning. Will C

  24. I would have started before the crisis, reducing the debt in times of prosperity like former Prime Ministers did. I would have supported Canadian businesses, instead of encouraging my premiers to criminalize their operation. If my finance minister was Bill Morneau, whose background was executive chairman of Morneau Shepel a company trusted by several major pension funds to manage their portfolios, I would have listened when he told me that spending was wildly out of control. I would not refuse to take his phone calls, making his position untenable and forcing his resignation. I certainly in a

And if "every single state which administers it, Republican and Democrat, says there's no evidence of widespread fraud" what was this about then: 10 state AGs file brief supporting challenge to Pennsylvania mail ballot deadline At least 10 states seem to think there might be evidence of fraud in at least Pennsylvania. As to this: "the federal government's own election monitoring agency says there's no evidence of any fraud..." That's not correct either. One guy, Chris Krebs said "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any

  30. Im sure you are right. People are indeed wearing them, yet the virus prevails. I suspect the truth of the matter is that people trust the masks and it gives them a false sense of security. Absolutely false, for any paper or cloth masks. Likewise physical distancing does not work in the store lineups, because when you stand on the X right in the same location where the previous person was, you are breathing in their air. It now matters how long you wait before advancing, how long they were standing there before you, and ventilation. Therefor be advised. If you can smell her perf

I don't mean to single out USA today because WashPo, CNN, NYT and all the other fake news outlets posted similar disinformation on their various platforms. I'm just not rounding up all the links. Those people know that there's a certain percentage of people who lack the reading comprehension to make sense of what they're looking at, some are ignorant enough to just believe it without checking into it, and there are people who are happy to just lie right along with them just to smear someone that they don't like.

Sulking and claiming she actually won for years afterward and giving silent assent to the rioting, looting and attacks that occurred months afterwards and caused billions of $ damage. And during her campaign she helped spread the fraudulent Steele Dossier that was never backed up by a single source. And she recently was still claiming she won.

  40. Hmm. You're not getting it, it's all of the above. The Trump legal team has dozens of affidavits across probably 6 or 7 states. Witnesses on the ground saw all kinds of illegal shenanigans and have submitted sworn statements. I don't know what they all are. I don't think anyone does, outside of the legal professionals connected to the cases. Arizona alone had almost 3000 ballots from out of state that apparently aren't military or students. They shouldn't have been counted and will eventually be deducted from the totals as they should have been in the first place. And here's the b

  41. Also, the historic rejection rate of mail in ballots is a stat that bears investigation. Every election, there have been mail in ballots, for varying reasons. When you look at the number of mail in ballots rejected each year, it averages 1%. This is ballots that are missing information, are not signed, the person is not eligible, or some other legal reason. In this election, applying the 1% average to the mail in ballots in PA, around 26,000 mail in ballots would have been rejected. They rejected 951 ballots. 951 ballots, and they blocked, barred, and abused the republican watchers.

Canada should beware Joe Biden’s ‘Buy American’ mentality With our southern neighbours' recent election of Joe Biden, many commentators and interest groups have expressed relief at the arrival of this career politician with a calmer tone than his predecessor’s. But when it comes to economics, can we really expect a less protectionist president who will smooth trade relations with our country? Like many international trade experts and diplomats, we do not think that this Democratic victory will necessarily mean freer trade between our two countries. While the disputes in the aluminum a

They have been printing fake ballots by the 10's of thousands, cast for Biden, and trucking them in at night, to boost Biden's numbers where needed.
