  1. Calling conservatives "White supremacists," is beginning to sound like Hillary's "deplorable."

      If most conservatives aren’t white supremacists, then how would so-called dog whistles rally support?

    2. betsy

      Actually, it's pundits (journalists) who made that observation (Liberals trying to tie up conservatives (like Scheer) to white supremacists -  I think it was on CTV Power Play - saying that it's starting to sound like: Hillary's deplorables. 

      One said people are not buying into it.  They say it could backfire against the Liberals.  Journalists must be seeing some negative reaction from the public.

  2. Can someone please explain why my post is gone from Argus' new topic, "People are lonely?"

    It was the first response to that topic!

    I do hope nobody's playing "exclusion by request of anyone" on this site!

      I can say for a fact they are. 

      A certain poster doesn't like their misrepresentations questioned.

  3. Can you believe this bull about Sears?   They're ripping off pensions of employees....and giving bonuses to executive officers - who no doubt had everything to do with Sears' failure!   

    I hope these employees win in their lawsuit!  Companies like deplorable Sears ought to get knocked down!

      Maybe if they had a union this wouldn't be happening to them.

      Perhaps, but the union sure wasn't any help when McCain foods pulled out of Edmonton.  Unions don't carry as much productive weight as a lot of people think.

      Not sure about Edmonton, but compare what's happening at Sears with the most recent McCains Foods closure...   it's night and day.

      Union vs non-union. 

      So saying a union doesn't help in these situations is factually wrong.

  5. Canada has become embarrassingly irrelevant under Trudeau!

    Turkey passed up - actually ignored - Canada's offer to help!

     

    Canada offered to help Turkey investigate the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, but the Turks never took up the proposal. 

    Documents from Global Affairs Canada obtained by CBC News under Access to Information law show that in October 2018, then-foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland told her Turkish counterpart Canada would be happy to send investigators to help probe the death of the prominent Saudi journalist and dissident.

    A Global Affairs employee, who asked not to be identified, told CBC News that Turkish officials let the offer hang and never asked for Canada's help — despite repeated calls from its president for broad international co-operation in the investigation of Khashoggi's death.

    "Turkey simply never asked us," the Canadian official said.

    The U.S. has featured more prominently in Turkey's efforts; President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan personally urged the Americans to get more involved in the probe. Turkey also sent Washington and other national governments an audio recording of Khashoggi's death.

  7. Canadian correspondent asked Spicer at the White House daily briefing today, about a meeting between Trump and Trudeau.  Spicer was non-commital.  The reply was short and curt, that it's still in the works. Then Spicer promptly pointed at another journalist.

  8. Candy cane banned....because, "J" is for Jesus, the red symbolizes His blood, and white is for the Resurrection.  

    No kidding.  The looney politically correct are getting even more loonier!

     

    Manchester Elementary principal Jennifer Sinclair sent a memorandum to parents and students informing them that candy canes were off limits because “Historically, the shape [of the candy cane] is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection. This would also include different colored candy canes.”

    The list essentially banned any Christmas-specific decor or activities, including Christmas carols and music, reindeer, Elf on the Shelf, and red and green items, but it allowed for non-Christmas winter imagery such as yetis, penguins and “snowmen, snow women, snow people, snowflakes”:

      The school should be made to stop using the term Christmas to describe their festivities.  Christians groups should take that up as a challenge.  That's a form of misappropriation.

      @betsy  have to agree, this whole PC nonsense is a bridge too far.     I'm surprised they do call it Christmas, usually it's 'holidays' or some such thing.

  12. CBC Carole McNeil suggests White House veering on "authoritarian" with controlled messages to media. 

    Well?  We have "controlled" media when we got the CBC and CTV, both being mouthpieces for the sitting government!  They even go along and propagandize the deceptive narrative of giving all the credits to Trudeau (Trump renegotiating NAFTA) - to make him look good to Canadians!

      Hypocrisy.  That's the CBC for you - and all Canadians who feigned indignation over the death during the violent protest, and who showed this so-called solidarity with anti-fascist!

      So what if Bolton wrote a book.   He could just as easily have written that Trump admitted to killing someone in cold blood and dumping the body in the ocean!

      Furthermore - Bolton has the motive to lie!  More than one motive, in fact!  

      The evidence - by the Dem's own witnesses - show that Trump has not done anything impeachable!

      Kenneth Starr had explained everything in layman's terms!  Get a grip. :lol:

      The Dems are working feverishly to have witnesses be called - to prolong the spectacle - because they know - come election time - their goose is cooked!    They want to damage Trump as much as they can.

       

      I'd be surprised indeed if Trump does not win by a landslide!

    "Evangelicals increased their total numbers as Canada’s population grew.

    The same goes for Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs.

      They don't like the Conservative stance on immigration - that's the simple reason.  But they're bound to be more compatible with Conservative values!

      Criticism of Trump himself has become a form of virtue signalling of its own. That is to say, it is a stylish thing to do... it gets applause. The criticism itself doesn't even matter, as long as one blanket dismisses Donald Trump as an absolute charlatan and cad. The more absolute, the better.

      But many see through this and recognize it as theatre. The Dems and the media have tried to pull off the same joke too many times. We already know the punchline: Donald Trump.

      Still the record holder for lowest approval rating over the term of his presidency, currently at 53% disapproval rate - this means the majority of people disapprove of him, in case the number confuses you.  Seems like most people agree with Hollywood and athletes.

      He's also behind Biden by 10 points.  But I guess Trumpetts are desperate for anything positive, so a slight rise in approval to not even a majority is "good news"

       

       

      Eh?   What's that got to do with what I said?

       

      Hollywood and athletes aren't as influential as they imagine themselves to be!

No, sir, we are not fools for asking this question, and we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people.”

  21. CTV Marcia McMillan and that girl were pulling a fast one on an alleged "fact-check" on Trump.  what so-called fact-check was that?

    When Trump said that money from Nato countries "are pouring in,"  these two fibbers were saying that countries had already made a commitment even before Trump took office!  DOH, you empty-headed talking heads!

    crazy-sign-smiley-emoticon.gif

     

    Making commitment, isn't the same as "money pouring in!"  So many countries had made commitments, and they weren't fulfilling those commitments!  That's the point!

     

    Now, it looks like some countries are making good on those commitments!  They're giving the money!

     

    The only fact-check I can see is showing a lot of talking heads don't even realize the drivel they spill!

      Actually it’s not new as it’s questionable as to how much coverage the media really provides, and in this case, how fair they would be.    Last fall Patrick Brown’s  Chief of Staff canvassed media outlets about not providing a bus to follow Brown during the campaign so the PC’s were looking at doing away with the bus long before Ford became leader.
