  1. Dedicated to those who think military parades are just for dictators!






    1. Omni


      I bet we all have bone spurs if you look hard enough.

    2. ?Impact


      Yes, but we don't all have the connections that allow us to use them as excuses.

    3. Omni


      Indeed. I wonder how many soldiers roamed around Viet Nam heavily encumbered with those nasty bone spurs.

  2. Democrat Schumer tries to weasel justification why Kavanaugh does not deserve PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE! 

    watch how he trips himself!



      If it's a fact-finding proceeding (and not a criminal trial) - you do not jump into conclusion that an accused is automatically guilty just because somebody accused him of a crime!

    Yes, IF - IF Ford is right, of course....Kavanaugh's credibility is shot.

    But that's the question, isn't it, moron?

    Is Ford right or not?

    The purpose of fact-finding IS TO DETERMINE WHETHER FORD IS RIGHT,
    OR NOT!

    Hey, moron.....until it's determined that she's right (through what you described as, FACT-FINDING) , that means, you don't declare the accused automatically guilty!

    You wait to see the facts!

    See? You're tripped by your own words that this so-called "fact-finding job interview," is nothing but a farce!

    You pathetic, deplorable weasel. You're no better than a con man!
    I hope voters see through these deceptions the Dems try to weave around their supporters.

    BLEEEEEECH! Sorry....I just puked.

    1. Argus


      It's this kind of fanatical determination to ignore reality which is going to get the Republicans hammered, both in November and in 2 years. There's no reason why Kavanaugh can't be withdrawn and another conservative nominee put in his place. Continuing to push this guy, despite his pathetic performance in front of the committee, his lying, evasiveness, yelling at the committee, crying and anger management issues, is moronic.

    2. betsy


      The video of Schumer is clear.   Don't ignore reality.




    That's why we hear a lot of arguments that now try to focus on his "temperament!"  :lol:

    1. OftenWrong


      How dare he get upset over these baseless personal accusations, eh? 

    2. scribblet


      Get this now...

      The creepy porn lawyer Avenatti's new witness is now claiming that she attended "over 20 house parties" where she saw Kavanaugh spiking the punch with Quaaludes.   (how did she know they were Quaaludes)

      So let me get this right...   she saw them spiking the punch with drugs yet still went to 20 parties - and she was best friends  with Ford and  Swetnick.   Who in Gawd’s name are these people?

  4. Democrats' incompetence - neglecting to secure the authority to issue subpoenas - keep biting their a**! 

    Bye-bye Bolton!  :lol:

  5. Dems and media are all aghast that Trump put the blame on mental illness!   He's right! What is wrong with that?

    Surely, you folks aren't naive enough to think that all people who hate end up killing????

    If someone can't harness his hatred that he resorts to violence - then, obviously there's some mental issues going on in there!

      When the color of the person's skin is the reason for the shooting, sure. But what the hell is a black shooting? White people shooting blacks? Black people shooting whites? How is it even relevant?

  6. Did CTV or CBC showed Trump supporters showing their support in UK?



    1. scribblet


      Not likely but I have some pics too   :)-

    2. BubberMiley


      The only Trump supporters left are the ones who will admit they don't mind politicians working with adversarial foreign powers to illegally hack their rivals and compromise free elections. They hate their left-wing neighbours so much that irritating them is more important to them than western democracy. 

    3. bush_cheney2004


      Trudeau and his minions have spent a lot more time and money trying to influence Americans than Putin.   More terrorists came from Canada than Russia.   NATO deadbeats have no grounds to whine about Trump.

  7. Did the Opposition check the fine print???  For all we know....Trudeau also slipped it in that bill that he'll be PM for the next 20 years.....or, for life! 

    Kinda taking a page from Xi and Putin! :lol:

    1. scribblet


      I wondered that too, who knows what they slipped in there, at least it looks as if they are limited to 6 months.   Talk about an egregious power grab.   Tantamount to overturning the election results.

  8. Did you see the new Conservative attack ad on Trudeau?  :lol: 


    They showed it last night on Power Play - can't find it on youtube!   All the leftists' criticisms on Trump......you'd think it's about Trump! 

    Lol.   What would Trudeau-loving-Trump-haters have to say now?


    1. scribblet


      and please don't call him 'little potato'

  9. Didn't Trudeau just gave $1 billion LAST YEAR  to Bombardier to KEEP JOBS? 


    The excutives even gave themselves fat raises!


    Apr 2017

    Last week, Trudeau said the government respects “the free market and the choices that companies will make.” On Monday, he said the government is “obviously not pleased” with Bombardier’s decision, “but we are happy to see it make decisions that are fixing that for Quebecers’ and Canadians’ confidence.”



    What f**king confidence is he on about when it isn't the first time Bombardier had been bailed out by Canadian taxpayers???

    So....today, Bombardier is laying off 5.000 workers!


    What happened to that billion?

    1. DogOnPorch


      My bet is Air Bus if it's missing...so to speak.

    2. betsy


      Which Liberal politician is tied with Bombardier?   Chretien?

      There must be a reason why Bombardier is so cuddled by the Liberals!

    3. DogOnPorch


      Quebec...I thought.

  10. Didn't work.

    Looks like Trudeau will have to do his contrition speech after all.

  11. Do we have an air raid siren?

    Japan woke up to air raid siren when NKorea launched a missile.

    1. betsy


      Uh-oh.  Looks like most of them are gone.



      A bit of research and I found out that most were removed by the Department of National Defence (DND) back in the 1970s because they were rusting and becoming eyesores. The Federal Government had no money to maintain them. These sirens had been installed back in the 50s as part of the cold war effort to be prepared for air raids. Those sirens would give about twenty minutes advanced warning for people to take shelter in case of an enemy attack.

      Apparently there are a few left, some web sites show two in Toronto and a few in BC. DND admitted in an interview to the Toronto Star in 2007, that some may have been missed from the inventory. In fact, there was controversy as to who actually owned them. The Star called the City of Toronto, who referred them to the Province, who referred them to DND, who referred them back to the City of Toronto.

      There was a time when the sirens made sense and the investment was justified. Times change however, and technology advances require us to constantly revisit the premise upon which we made a decision. In emergency management, much has changed as well. I started my emergency management career by having to pull out the emergency plan once a year, turn to the telephone list, and call everyone to make sure the phone numbers were still valid. Back then a blackberry was a fruit, a cell was a living organism, and a network was a social organization.



    2. drummindiver


      For the types of missiles they are talking about nowadays pretty sure a siren won't help much.

    3. betsy


      Having the time to get to a bunker, or your basement - 20 minutes can be ample time to seal off a room -  it's better than nothing. 

  12. Does Canada have something like this?


    "Inside the secret U.S. stockpile meant to save us all in a bioterror attack"



  13. Don't let this Clement scandal bury something we ought to be really concerned about!

  14. Don't take the polls seriously!  Remember all those polls that says Clinton was gonna win???

    Go out and vote!!!

    1. BubberMiley


      Nevertheless, the CBC poll tracker currently gives Ford more than a 72% chance of winning a majority. I agree with betsy. The only poll that counts is on election day and the NDP have the momentum!

    2. AngusThermopyle


      That momentum is starting to fade pretty quickly as more of their loony members are revealed to public scrutiny. Not to mention really bad math skills, sanctuary provinces and donating an unspecified "little more" in taxes. 

    3. betsy


      ....and Horvath's statement that she'll never use the back-to-work legislation:  what does that say to the union?

      Just by revealing that openly, is a bad decision, Ms Horvath!  You're practically announcing you'll give the  greenlight for the union to take the taxpayers to the cleaners!

  16. Elliot will not concede? 

    With the election a few months from now - this will drag on?

    1. scribblet


      I do hope for 24 hrs for a resolution, we can't afford even a liberal minority but Elliot is putting self first.

      Just found out:  Elliott will support Ford.

  17. Even earthquakes are onboard in this climate change!  hahaha

    Volcanoes, too!

    1. BubberMiley


      Yes, denying climate change is similar to religion in that you deny science because it interferes with what you want to believe. Good point.

    2. DogOnPorch


      It's changing because 8 billion folks (and growing) are like parasites to this globe. Get ready for the next Permian style extinction. You've got front row seats. There's not a damn thing we can do....short of collectively offing ourselves in an eco-friendly way. The critters would thank us.

    3. Shady


      Like I already said.  Go talk to China and India, until then you know what to do.

  18. Ex-boyfriend exposes MORE LIES by Christine Blasey Ford!

    She never voiced any fear of flying!  And, what claustrophobia 2 -door bulls###? 

    She had no problems living in a "very small," 500 sq. ft. apartment with one door!"


    Christine Blasey Ford ex-boyfriend says she helped friend prep for potential polygraph; Grassley sounds alarm

      I deleted the ignorant claim insisting the hearing was a "job interview."   We've already discussed that in the forum, and I've already explained why it isn't a job interview.  I don't want this thread to be cluttered by ignorant trollings.

    “there’s much more to the story that needs to be told” but that it can’t come out because “there’s been an attempt to shut down the story” - Philpott

      Q: Why didn't Raybould resign if she didn't like what was happening?

      A:  She's the one who's got her finger on the dike - protecting the rule of law!



    2. AngusThermopyle


      Explosive hardly begins to describe this whole sordid debacle. It runs far deeper than most know, the tentacles stretch out in many directions, like this one for instance.


  20. Facebook should not only face fines, but also be punitively ordered to compensate all facebook members!

    Make an example of Facebook!  

  21. FBI discovers   Kavanaugh was so drunk he did a Chippendale performance on a bar counter!    Meh.  Big deal.  He did say  he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe. 

    Kavanaugh passed out drunk in a washroom.   Meh.  Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe. 


    Kavanaugh was so drunk he puked in an alley! Meh.  Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe. 

    Kavanaugh was so drunk he sang at karaoke!  He sounded so awful!  Meh.  Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe. 

    Kavanaugh was so drunk he swore worse than a sailor.  Meh.  Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe. 

    Kavanaugh got in a bar fight and threw ice!   Meh.   Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe. 

    I'll worry when as a judge,  he gets caught looking like this:




    or this:






  22. Finally.....she fesses up.



    "Angela Merkel admits that 'no-go zones' exist in Germany

    Conservatives and populists have long warned of the existence of such zones as the partial consequence of mass Muslim migration from the Middle East and Africa, particularly after Merkel opened Germany’s borders in 2015 as a response to the Syrian refugee crisis. Such areas are said to be dogged by high-levels of crime and are described as "no-go zones" because outsiders, including police and other authorities, are unable to enter.


    “Today, it seems this taboo has been broken. Guess who is talking about ‘no-go zones’?” a blog post on the Hungarian government’s official website said. "

    1. scribblet


      And the truth is there isn't it, I know people in the U.K. who say the same thing but it's not admitted, they just call them 'problematic areas'.

  23. FN wants to buy the pipeline!

    Whom are we kidding here?  This is another shell game!

    Canadian taxpayers bought the pipeline - and, Canadian taxpayers will be the one buying it too for FN!  Double whammy for taxpayers!

    Lol.   Canadians are surely taking a terrible beating from Trudeau government!   slapping.gif


    There's no letting up, eh......taking us through the grinder!

  24. Ford was DRUNK!    By her own admission!




    According to Blasey, now Christine Blasey Ford, all three had been drinking; but the boys were especially intoxicated

    In other words, she was drunk too - but she says, the boys were more drunk than she was.  How can she tell ?   :lol:


    She can't remember details that other sex assault/rape victims could never forget! 



    Dr. Ford's testimony lacks key details




    No wonder she didmn't want to testify!  Can you imagine the cross-examination? :lol:

      Tentatively as she is demanding that he testifies first...   which is unusual as the accused  can't speak to the issue unless he knows what the accuser has said.  

      All designed to drag it out and run down the clock.   Grassley is nuts if he lets the Dems. roll over him on this one.


    3. Hal 9000

      Hal 9000

      It's obvious that she doesn't want to testify.  The Dems are simply waiting until they can blame Grassley and claim victimhood.  Ford is full of shit.   

    4. scribblet


      Exactly.   I'm not sure of the timel ine or what will happen if she doesn't testify Thursday, but IMO if she does not, they should just have the vote.   This is just  organized political blackmail and I'd like to know who is paying for her high priced democrat lawyers.
