Federal government breathes sigh of relief...

...as native peoples offer to contribute corporate expertise...

The head of the Assembly of First Nations signalled a renewed willingness to work with the feds on major resource development projects.
I'm just happy that Canada's aboriginal communities have solved all those other pesky little problems that were stopping their communities from assuming these larger responsibilities.

FROM THE COMMENTS: Aboriginal corruption...

"It is alleged the grand chief used $10,000 of the group’s money on a Minnesota gambling excursion and a trip to an amusement park in August and September. That scandal tainted the lobby group and the more it spread, the worse it got."
Yup... I'm shocked...
-- WINNIPEG -- A Manitoba native group misspent more than $6 million in federal health-care funds on exotic trips and unjustified payments to the organization's CEO, a federal audit has revealed.
Of course, if you audit aboriginal peoples... it just means you're a racist.

A cautionary tale from the guy...

...who brought you My Lai & Abu Ghraib... let's face it, this guy is a liberal's wet dream come true...

It doesn't take much to fire up Hersh, the investigative journalist who has been the nemesis of US presidents since the 1960s and who was once described by the Republican party as "the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist".
Of course, he's less celebrated when he turns his critical eye a little to the left...
"The Obama administration lies systematically," he claims, "Yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him."

"It's pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama]," he declares in an interview with the Guardian.
He's not afraid to get into specifics...
On the subject of the Navy Seal raid that supposedly resulted in the death of the Al-Qaeda terror leader, Hersh remarked, “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true.”

Hersh added that the Obama administration habitually lies but they continue to do so because the press allows them to get away with it.
I miss real journalism.

The band's songs include “Horny Single Mom” and “Jesus Got Wood.” The video for the latter features a writhing woman and the lyrics, “Baby you're going to get impaled.”
Now, don't you read anything scurrilous into this, folks... ol' Rolf has an explanation for all that as well...
Dinsdale says the songs show his sense of humour and he considers his material pro-Christian. Jesus Got Wood is a Christian anthem."

So You Think You Can Think

No wonder Al-Shabaab thinks we're ripe for the picking...

In a body-popping bid for wider understanding, scientists from Australia to the Netherlands are making interpretive dance videos based on their Ph.D. dissertations. To make an esoteric thesis come alive, they leap, swoon, spin and krump.

The performances -- all captured on video and posted online -- belong to an annual international competition called "Dance Your Ph.D," which for five years has been turning scientific obsessions into performance art. To qualify, the author of the Ph.D. dissertation must perform in the dance. Typically, the scientists submit the videos after being awarded their Ph.D.s.
And like any contemporary kindergarten class... everybody is a winner.
"It makes you think in a different way," said Matt Kent who is among the contest judges. "Even if I hate the performance, I love the idea that they are trying."


Of course it's a fake...

The Redistribution (for some) Cometh

Isn't a man who will have 24/7 bodyguards for the rest of his life, a man who will be taken directly to the front of every conceivable waiting line... isn't such a man the very definition of the despicable 1 percent?
redistributing wealth

$621 billion is a pretty eye-glazing number. Most readers will find it easier to think about how this number translates to a typical American family—the very family candidate Obama promised would see $2,500 in annual savings as far as the eye could see.

Between 2014 and 2022, the increase in national health spending (which the Medicare actuaries specifically attribute to the law) amounts to $7,450 per family of 4.

RELATED: Obamanomics... the tally
The Federal Reserve also released its latest weekly accounting sheet indicating that it had already accumulated more Treasuries and MBSs than the total value of the publicly held U.S. government debt amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington though Bill Clinton.

Since the beginning of September 2008, in fact, the Fed's ownership of Treasury securities and MBSs has increased seven fold.
Because that's what socialists do...
"In 1968, when Trudeau went from rich, socialist professor who had never held a real job in his life to prime minister, Canada’s national debt was a modest $11.3 billion; the federal deficit was zero."

"When Trudeau left office in 1984, the debt had mushroomed to $128 billion; the deficit to $25 billion annually."

Watching Freeland talk, it’s easy to see why Trudeau finds her impressive. She has all the latest buzzwords and jargon. In a 60-second interview last week, she used the phrase “tipping point” four times. She loves talking about “millennials.”

She’s not a policy adviser. She’s a pundit. She doesn’t know a lot about economics, or about Canada.

But to Trudeau, she’s got something more important: The unwavering loyalty of her former Media Party colleagues.

And, of course, no more astrophysics, as the term "black hole" has now been officially erased from the lexicon...

It's official... when you start to fall over yourselves about politically correct silliness like this, it's time to disband the whole effete organisation.

I just about threw up when I heard Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson sombrely announcing that the whole city was in mourning for these people... even before bodies had been pulled from the wreckage.

However, the court added that no offence had been committed as the masturbating man was not pleasuring himself towards a specific person.

When asked if it was now acceptable to masturbate in public if you don't direct it towards a specific individual the prosecutor said it was "okay."
You think I'm kidding here? Think again.
Meanwhile, the workshops where Liberals were meant to hammer out 135 or so policy resolutions were all but deserted.

The princely sum of $325,183 has been spent on this endeavour.

Airbrushing the Politburo

All that carefully crafted spin... surely you don't think any part of that is a happy accident...

Why would anyone enamored enough with an Obama administration they want to go work for do anything that might make a potential employer uncomfortable -- you know, like actually report on ObamaCare and the economy honestly, or dig into Benghazi and the IRS?

The media is left-wing and crusading enough without the potential of a cushy government job being held out as a carrot.

And don't think the Obama administration isn't doling out these jobs for a reason. What a wonderful message to send to the world of media: Don't go too far, don't burn a bridge, don't upset us too much and there just might be a lifeline off the sinking MSM ship.
Despite employing all the "media guerillas" to shape the message... Americans are starting to wise up...
"Americans' trust and confidence in the federal government's ability to solve problems internationally as well as domestically has fallen to historic lows this year."
Unfortunately, it's too late to do anything about the horrendous economic damage the Obamacrats have already wreaked on the land. You can only move forward... hopefully in a more responsible manner.

There is a message in here for Canadians. Will short memories and a craving for celebrity allow us to elect the son of the man who, over the course of his reign, increased the deficit by a factor of ten?


Sex, Lies and alleged Videotape

Okay, so there's no sex. You'll have to settle for a murder.

Officers responded to 37 Francine Dr., near Leslie St. and McNicoll Ave., around 9 a.m. and located the mortally wounded victim on the front porch.

“He appeared to be suffering from stab wounds,” Const. Wendy Drummond said. Police immediately suspected the man had been murdered [striking more yip-yap about the school lockdown, including a hastily dispatched rent-a-cop].

Homicide detectives stopped by the scene for a brief look around and soon after officially deemed the man’s death a murder, the city’s 41st killing of the year.

The victim’s name was not released.
You want useful information, maybe he had a Facebook page. Alright, alright, there's a process here... we need to protect people's privacy.

There's always an insult in these missives (Nonny invariably refers to me as Neo-Cunt)... as if my anonymous fanboy thinks I'm gonna roll over and cry. He simply misses the fact that his commentary reveals much more about his own personality than anything else.

If legalising pot is the extent of Justin's policy depths... he may be in for a rougher ride than he thinks.

Yup... some murders are way more...

...important than others...
what murder

•• TORONTO •• A 16-year-old boy is dead after he was shot in the neck in an apartment on Weston Road near Lawrence Avenue West late Sunday.

The shooting is the latest in a spate of recent gun violence. In the last six months, at least six teens have been shot and five have died from their injuries.
Wait a minute, where's Alok Mukherjee? Where's Andre Marin?

Where's the garish, manipulative OCAP death parade? Why isn't this shooting dominating the nationwide news cycle?

Oh, right... no cops... no vultures.

"It’s all eerily familiar to the last big protest he led when he helped co-opt the Sammy Yatim march. Is Hussan simply on auto-pilot, or is this an intentional provocation?"
Orwell was right.

All those dead teenagers... I think I better write a poem.

In a release issued Monday afternoon, police identified the victim as Yusuf Tifow.
Senseless.

FLIP... wait, I mean FLOP

Following in Hillary Clinton's illustrious footsteps...

“President Assad has been very generous with me in terms of the discussions we have had,” Mr. Kerry, as a senator from Massachusetts, told an audience at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in March 2011. He predicted that Mr. Assad would change for the better.
That was then.

This is now...
Today, Mr. Kerry is a leading advocate for attacking Mr. Assad’s regime. On Friday, he called the man he once befriended a thug and murderer.”
That's how the hopey-changey lunatic left does it.


Little less pot... little more paperwork?

So what's up with the party of... "Dave's not here, man"...

"Justin Trudeau's successful and popular visit last week there indicates that there is a lot of support to work with and we look forward to waging a strong campaign there as we will across the country," Andree-Lyne Halle told QMI Agency.
Hey, full speed ahead, huh? Nuthin' gonna stop this political juggernau... wait a minute...
It turns out the Federal Liberal Association for Central Nova - the riding in which Antigonish is located - had been put on notice only a week before, the result of failing to comply with various financial submissions requirements of the Canada Elections Act.
Oh, oh... might be a "non-voluntary deregistration" comin' down the pike.

Hey, Justin... maybe scope out the office for the giggley dude with the cheezie dust paws. Victimless crime, my sweet patootie.

...it almost bankrupted the country...
"In other words, the only reason there was a large deficit, was because of the huge interest payments (33 cents on every tax dollar) Canada had to pay to service the enormous debt Trudeau built up."
His father's charisma... his mother's intellect.
