Kenney Is Gone.......!!!!!!

I mean, just wow! The whisper number was that he needed at least 66%. He got 52% and so he resigned as UCP leader.

It's funny to see Conservative parties growing a pair while Liberals are still licking you know who's ass.

Makes me damned proud to be a Conservative. Caucus having clout is good. The membership having it is so much better.

BOC: Campbell Wrong, Poilièvre Right.

Kim Campbell doesn't seem to think too highly of the CPC. Admittedly, she has a lot of company, which is important for our party to remember. Sure, we're not doing enough on climate change and feminist advancement but we sure aren't codding authoritarianism. So, Campbell is definitely wrong on that.

As for the BOC and its legislated independence, well, they don't do squat unless it dovetails with what the so-called political masters want politically. Plus the lazy politicians tend to inevitably buy into the central  bank  foolishness  and  incompetence:  read  the  Keynesian  policies  of  easy  money  and          I-N-E-V-I-T-A-B-L-E inflation creation. Sure, COVID-19 and Ukraine are factors but only that. The main cause by far is the digitization of money. Look south of the border where The Federal Reserve has recently created 45% of the money supply. Insane idiocy.

What we need is continual rises in rates to at least past the unofficial inflation rate which is somewhere between 15 and 25% both in Canada and the United States. That's what Volcker did and it worked leading to a huge economic expansion and multi-decade boom.

So, on this issue, I'm almost 100% with Poilièvre. My proviso is that the Governor be allowed to admit publicly that the BOC was wrong to permit easy money to this extent and also indicate that further tightening by same will continue. That's Macklem's fig leaf out. Otherwise, he goes and Poilièvre would find us a new gov.

In short, it has absolutely nothing to do with someone growing up. What it has to do with is the verbal diarrhea coming out of Biden's mouth on this. For Christ's sake, he re-nominated this serial incompetent as Chair. Biden did that, and Trump did it before him. Fucking Powell, what a jackass. But I digress.

Macklem needs to be put on notice that things will be greatly different if the CPC ultimately forms government and I for one see absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact, I commend Pierre for taking this on.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I support Charest's leadership bid.

CPC Ballot: Ranking Changes.

That's what I like about counting the ballots only in September: as you watch and hear them out, it provokes changes, at least to my second and third rankings. It sure has. I doubt these rankings will change a third time but nothing is impossible now is it.

I'm for Charest, which should be no surprise to most of you.

Wednesday, 11 May 2022

Jesus Christ, Joe.

Nobody and I mean absolutely nobody is buying that speech bullshit that COVID-19 and Putin's war are behind inflation.

Inflation is entirely due to the creation and digitization of money, courtesy of The Federal Reserve.

And who did nothing to stop it: let's see, Obama, Trump and Biden.

And who nominated that incompetent Powell as chair: let's see, Trump and later Biden.

So, own up to your responsibility Joe and pray like hell that abortion saves your party's ass in the mid-terms.

As for 2024, don't hold your breath counting on a win and a second term cause that's called reality Joe.

Trudeau In Kyiv.

Every Canadian will support this visit as it sends the right signal of solidarity and commitment to Ukraine and its people. Biden take note. Don't make me laugh that any individual president is so important that he or she can't and shouldn't visit Kyiv. 

When Roosevelt and Kennedy died, the world kept turning and the United States continued. This security bullshit is just that, bullshit, as it amplifies the perceived over-importance of an American president in the overall scheme of things. No duly elected president is indispensable. If Dr. Jill Biden can go, so can her husband. Like I said, bullshit.

Ukraine: Demoralized Russians?

And they thought it couldn't get any worse: reports are circulating that that outstanding Marshal of Russia is going to take command, personally. By all means.

That should finish them off even more quickly with Putin at the helm. Too funny. What's next, The Keystone Kops?

To say that the Russians have been humbled is the understatement of the century. Maybe Putin going forward should meet his people in a football stadium. You know, lots and lots of space. He would also be well advised to cook his own meals. That's the thing about dictactorship, it can get tricky right out of the blue, especially when both conscripts and professionals are dropping like flies.

May God continue to bless Ukraine and her people.

Don't Cry For Me Stock Markets.

Well, finally. The Bond bubble is finally a bursting good. Just look at IG bonds: LQD-A.

And if that doesn't quite cut it for ya, check out these beauts: SCHZ-A, BND-Q and AGG-A.

She's going down, baby! And she'll take the major stock indices with her. Yes, sir.

Thank you, Jesus. Long, long, long, overdue.

Now if the idiot prez can finally fire Powell and the entire FOMC. Obama put that incompetent there and Trump made him Chair. More stupid prezs.

Vance, Trump And Ohio.

You know how it goes, so goes Ohio and so goes the country. Maybe.

Is Ohio still a swing state and president maker? That was quite the split nonetheless with Dolan in a close third. So, for Trump it's still a win to at least some extent because the guy is still relatively powerful and more important relevant in federal politics.

What Trump says and does still matters, and who he endorses has major political consequences, for now.

We're about to be in for at least a primary a week and that should be fun to see how Trump does. I'm not betting on a reliable trend, no sir, no mamn.

Throw Roe into the mix and we're in for a lot of serious debate and political fun. Maybe 4th of July style fireworks in favor of Dems and maybe not. But women will be heard loud and clear either way and that's a good thing.

Mind you, if my name is Collins, I'm feeling pretty stupid right now so it's seat-saving time, at least theoretically. But I digress.

Kind of feels like some drunk guy shoving his you know what right in your face, doesn't it.

But back to Ohio: does it really matter nationally or is it simply an exercise in serious navel gazing? You tell me.

CPC Debates.

One down. 

The real question is about their collective outcome. Will they cement the front runner or clearly distinguish a challenger who can leap ahead?

In my view, nope. Not at all. IMHO, the only real winner after three debates will be the person not part of the dynamic duo already known as ANYBODY BUT [INSERT NAME OF THE DESPISED HERE.]

That's the story so far.

Full disclosure: I support Charest.

Ukrainian Re-Supply?

That's it in a nut shell: it's all about re-supply and for how long Putin is prepared to take it. Not long because the demon seed knows that inevitably, re-supply is all about gradation and that means Russian fighters, Russian tanks and both of them gradually being supplanted by American fighters, bombers and tanks, not to mention German tanks and French and British tanks, fighters and bombers.

THAT'S where this is inevitably going, leaving Putin no choice but to attack NATO: first Poland and later with an assault that could reach past Germany, into France and Italy and down to the low countries. Maybe even into Spain and Scandinavia. 

So, forget about Moldova or the Baltics because that's nothing more than a sideshow.

The deluded, demented sociopath has much bigger plans.

IPSOS: A Parallel Universe.

My God, what a pathetic joke: do I ever feel sorry for my candidate, Jean Charest and our supporters. Most Canadians expect Poilievre to win with Charest not even dominating in our home province among CPC members and supporters.

Granted I'm biased but from where I'm sitting, I can't imagine Pierre beating Trudeau. Not on your life. Even Charest would have an uphill battle. I think Team Charest already know it's over for all practical purposes -- there's no way in hell that we'll sell more memberships than Pierre, period.

I repeatedly urged my team to wrap up a deal with Leslyn but I don't see any signs of that happening. So...unless a deal is reached and Leslyn can swing at least 85% of her people behind Jean, then just forget it.

I've seen this movie before with both O'Toole and before him Scheer winning the popular vote. Big fucking deal...and with Poilievre running second in Ontario, just imagine how he'll likely do in that province in the general.

Somewhere, our pathetic excuse for a prime minister is at least smirking and has reason to be. Talk about a parallel political universe leading us once again back on to the opposition benches.

John Kirby: Just Gave It Away.

John Kirby represents your average American and let's face it, most Americans down in their hearts and souls are just like Kirby, quintessential Americans.

They'll fight like hell when it comes to politics but down at marrow level, they're pretty much all decent Americans who love their country and want to do what's right and honorable. That's why the bonds that bind may bend right into a pretzel but they'll never, ever, really break. 

America may not always be Reagan's shining city on a hill but the United States is always a beacon of light for what good represents.

That's why Kirby unintentionally gave it away by breaking down over Ukraine. He showed the world what the American fabric is truly all about. Americans on their worst day are the greatest humanists and humanitarians on this planet bar none.

There's a reason why they call it the Free World, namely, America against her own initial impulses is rising to the occasion in the face of a demon seed and pure evil. The United States did it in WWI and WWII and so it shall this time. They will save democracy worldwide, just like they did twice before. And why? Because they are Americans, that's why.

Kirby gave it away, probably without realizing it. His was the reaction of the average American and sooner or later, Biden will no longer be able to take it anymore and America will finally have at it. And Thank God for that. 

May God Bless the United States of America and her people who will inevitably do her proud, because...they're Americans.

Come On Little Man.

I'm quaking. Nuke us. I dare you. Can you say Virginia-Class? Pray to the devil that you worship that you never find out because it'll be Bye, bye, Russia time.

Saturday, 23 April 2022


I can't help wondering how well we're doing in signing up memberships. Not my cup of tea. Anyway, are we seriously closing the gap with Team Pierre? 

And then there's the attack strategy still coming out of both camps. What does that say about memberships already sold? Hope we've sold more than Brown has.

It's no news to anyone that I'm all in for the Wynne strategy: so, who logically bends into whose wind and what's the political price if and when we form government? E-X-A-C-T-L-Y.

I'm already giving my two cents to those who care to hear it.

The Fed: Damned If They Do AND If They Don't.

On my best day, I'm at the very least a Federal Reserve blood enemy: how I positively loathe their persistent lack of political accountability, not to mention successive presidents and congressional leadership who go out of their way to let them be.

These serial incompetents have done what The Fed has mostly always done: destroyed an otherwise healthy American economy. In this instance, via the economic insanity of QE, that mother of all inflation creation machines. They're quite literally hollowing out the middle class, not to mention decimating the poor.

Meanwhile, these paragons of sound economics and monetary policy profit continuously by being in the market that they themselves quite deliberately inflated via QE. Beyond despicable while the bought and paid for in DC ever conveniently look the other way.

So human abject misery begins with them as their digital money creating machine sends inflation spiraling out of control. It ain't at a bullshit 9%, it's more like at 15 to 20%.

This is where Fed damnation begins: they can panic and hike rates with a series of at least 75 basis point rises, or they can start and then suddenly chicken out and reverse course. You know, those upcoming midterms.

Option One throws an already fragile economy into official recession with the 10 year yield spiking up precipitously.  That means above 3% at minimum. Not good. Guess what, it'll sink the bond market and then down goes the rest.

Contrast that with chickening out, which they'll do, again for political reasons. You know, those midterms.

Breaking the back of inflation always means raising rates above the inflation rate. That's why Volcker went to 18%. There's no way Powell and company will do that here. No fucking way.

So, inflation is on-board for the duration as it continues to steadily rise. When it finally naturally begins to abate, not anytime soon, in will come a  deflationary bust that'll make 1929 look like a pleasant walk in the park.

In short, they goosed markets to make themselves a lot richer while destroying pretty much everyone else. Damned if they do and if they don't. Put another way, there's no possible good outcomes thanks to the collective incompetence of those chaletans at The Fed. After all, faking it till they don't make it is their only stock in trade...


Ukraine: Mass Graves And Dead Russian Oligarchs.

Our political cowards need to wake up and smell the coffee: we in the West and NATO can fight Russia now, which I'm calling for, or inevitably fight Putin later. Because make no mistake, Putin will stop at nothing and that means directly attacking any country he chooses -- NATO member or not. 

WWIII with Putin's Russia should come sooner rather than further down the road. And all of us who happen to be sentient know who will win and that country's name will never, ever, be Russia.

Saturday, 16 April 2022

How Much More Does Ukraine Have To Take Before NATO And The West Finally Say Uncle?

My God, watching this horror on our screens, day in and day out is almost more than I can take. One wonders what our politicians are made of. Human decency is crying out for direct military intervention from at least NATO and yet our cowardly politicians dither as ever increasing numbers of civilians die, men, women and children.

So, like I've said before, I'm for WWIII and I want it yesterday. In my book, I'd rather we all get blown to hell on this planet in the service of good and what is driven by humanism than to apply a collective policy of partial appeasement, because make no mistake, that's exactly what we're doing.

Anyone with functional brain cells knows that we're going to be all in in the end. Better that it come quickly on our terms than on Putin's.

It will be a great day for humanity when Putin is ultimately held accountable in The Hague. He'll swing and have absolutely no one else to blame other than himself. He quite deliberately chose to act like a sociopath and so, may he live with the appropriate legal and political consequences. Putin is the next Hussein and he already knows it.

Charest And Those Truckers.

Regular readers know where I stand on the so-called truckers and the freedom convoy.

Charest has made his position clear vis-à-vis Poilievre's support of that effort.

I would strongly urge Team Charest not to go there as there is a very effective response that negates that charge. Fortunately, nobody but me knows what it is and quite obviously, I won't be telling. LOL.

Ukraine: BOJO Leads While Biden Follows.

There have been at least three other high profile political visitors in Kyiv and all of them are to be commended for going there.

But as predicted, no one has outdone Johnson. What guts! Walking the streets of Kyiv with Zelenskyy. Wow, what courage, especially given the fact that war is the operating theatre for double and triple agents. Both of them could quite literally have gotten plugged but thank God they didn't.

Meanwhile, the dolts around Biden won't let him go to Ukraine. That makes him a follower instead of a leader.

So God bless Boris and may he have the wisdom and decency to finally get all of NATO directly into this war. Then and only then we can finally clean Putin's clock and put him in the ICC dock. 

Housakos: Is This All He's Got?

 Talking about missing the mark, it looks like Housakos is now Poilièvre's Agnew. Interesting.

But the thing is, he takes on Charest for respecting provincial jurisdiction and respecting the wishes of people in his province. Strange, I thought in Canada and particularly in the West that fellow Canadians were big on provincial jurisdiction and the premiers who decide what's what.

Housakos attempts to lump in Charest with the Trudeau Liberals. What a laugh! Where's his proof? Exactly.

Quebec has a carbon tax and funny eh, most Canadians favour either a tax, capture and storage or carbon credits. That's MOST Canadians. Housakos seems to have missed that.

Housakos doesn't like gun registeration -- another policy that most Canadians support. The argument is only about how and at what government level. Again, Housakos also has missed that.

And my God, Charest raised taxes during an economic crisis. What a radical progressive...after all no other federal, provincial or territorial government has ever done that to bring in new revenue streams.

And finally, what about Housakos' political judgment? Who again did he support in the last leadership race and even broke Senate rules to do it? Oh, right. Now that was bang on, wasn't it.

Ukraine: Portable Crematoriums.

Well, all of you know what that means -- Putin will stop at nothing to win. The message is clear to the troops, there are no rules, no conventions of war, it's all out inhumanity to man with no holds barred. Period.

What does that tell you? First and foremost that the civilian dead are at least in the tens of thousands hence the mad rush to destroy evidence, read bodies and cover up what in the final analysis can never be fully covered up.

So, the game plan is to quite literally stop at nothing and that means war crimes and crimes against humanity that will rival what the Nazis did.

Putin is now a cornered animal who can't win this war. I know it, you know it and so does The Kremlin. 

That means nothing is off the table to try and reverse a losing trend on the battlefield that can't and won't be reversed.

To survive, Putin has to cut off NATO resupply. So look not only at his increased adventures in the east but also the west. The more desperate Russian forces become, the more likely Poland will be attacked and then we're all in for better or worse.

Russian command and control on the ground has to know that the war is already lost and that The Hague is keeping score. That leaves local commanders with a choice: they can defy Moscow in theatre or collectively swing further down the road.

History reminds us of two separate events where mid-level Soviet officers prevented a nuclear exchange with the United States in the 1960s and 1980s.

That should be Putin's biggest fear. Will officers and men ultimately turn on him? Laughing it off are you? Well maybe, just maybe, you should ask the Tsar.

How Putin Problem Solves The World Right Into World War III.

Across the worldwide geopolitical community, there's an intense debate raging about what Putin actually knows of what is going on on the ground in Ukraine. Some argue that he's fully briefed while others insist that things are quite deliberately being kept from him. Personally, I agree with the former concluding that Putin is about as hands-on as you can get -- you can tell that by the ferocious and inhumane effort made by Russian forces. You know, anything goes even attacking fleeing civilians.

In short, Ukraine is well on its way to being Putin's disaster. That's what's in the making and Putin  can see the writing on the wall. He knows ahead of time that opening up yet another front in this war by invading Moldova next won't cut the mustard. Putin probably instinctively knows that Moldova is the next Ukraine where at best his forces will become bogged down and entrenched. In short, a mini-Ukraine. short, what can Putin do to turn the tide? As Russian forces become increasingly more desperate in Ukraine, he only has one chance to turn the tide of reinforcements and supplies arriving from the West and that means choking off Poland. 

To do that, he needs to take on the land of The Virgin Mary, Queen of Poland. And so he ultimately shall and that will finally mean an enlarged conflict with all of NATO. From there, it will be all downhill until Russia is invaded and effectively defeated, or the powers that be in The Kremlin save themselves by solving their own problem with Putin. Putin is almost invincible as long as he's WINNING. Once he's not and his armies are in stalemate, retreat or subject to defeat, then Putin's days are effectively numbered and nobody in Russia knows that better than Vladimir Putin himself.

Churchill Channeling On Ukraine.

"You can always count on the Americans to do the right thing after they have tried everything else."

The quicker that NATO joins this war, the better. It's good versus evil time: hospitals, seniors' residences, apartments, kindergartens, schools, theatres, etc.

The noose awaits at The Hague for war crimes and crimes against humanity. I'm counting the weeks and months to that glorious day.

Putin: Ultimately The Hague Bound.


Will Putin surrender voluntarily to the ICC in The Hague? I don't think so. You know what that means: NATO will have to ultimately "help" him to get there and make no mistake, he WILL get there, later rather than sooner.

Sunday, 27 March 2022

The REAL Joe Speaks.

"For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power."

That's what all this wringing of hands and backpedaling is all about. From Blinken on down, to the Senate and House, everyone is in a race with each other to put the kibosh on regime change in Russia and they're all dead wrong.

You see, Joe spoke from his heart and was backed up by his intelligence, instincts and yes, dare forbid, his emotions. He knows too well that Putin is, at the very least, the devil incarnate and therefore has to be taken on full bore. 

Biden is smart enough to recognize that with a demon seed, a wider war with NATO is almost inevitable. So...NATO, the EU and others can fight Putin now, or likely inevitably fight him later. 

In Foreign Policy 101, you learn that when you fill the geopolitical bottle with water, sooner or later it overflows. In the Ukraine context, that means steady filling by Ukraine's allies with ever increasing supplies of weapons of sophistication -- we all already KNOW how Putin will ultimately respond, he will attack NATO, period as he can stomach our reinforcement and resupply in Ukraine for only so long.

Joe instinctively knows that and so in his mind, it's a calculus of fighting Putin now or taking him on later. But either way, we will be at war with Russia in the final analysis.

And the other major humanitarian implication screams out for general mobilization across NATO right now. It's known as the Ukrainian government and people. With each passing day, more and more innocent civilians die. At what point does that number become unacceptable for NATO and worthy of military intervention? Exactly.

The Demon Seed cares not for civilian homes, hospitals, seniors' residences, schools, day-care centers, etc. Putin and his inner circle need to be defeated yesterday so they can collectively be on their way to The Hague for trial and punishment for their crimes against humanity and war crimes, period. Surely, this is one ICC dossier that the United States and every other civilization nation can rally around?

As Joe said from the heart, human decency is crying out for the saving of Ukraine. Don't disappoint The Almighty and don't ignore your collective humanity if you're in high positions of power in the United States, NATO, the EU and other allied countries.

Don't make the same mistake Obama made in Syria. This red-line needs to be defined now and tanks, fighters and bombers need to be in Ukraine as soon as possible. Then Ukrainians can take the war to Russia, so they can fittingly experience exactly what they have put Ukraine through. In French, we call it donner donnant.


Leslyn: A New And Improved Campaign?

As some of you will already know, when I filled out my ranked ballot last time, |I put Leslyn second, like a lot of other people. I put MacKay first.

I must say that it's pretty gutzy for her to run again. Quite obviously, Team Lewis is going to build on the last campaign autopsy and see where they went wrong, if they did. The other thing that's likely will be preparing their supporters for Strategy A and Strategy B. None of you need any help in knowing what Strategy A will be and is all about. Strategy B is, of course, TheGoToTM strategy. For maximum impact, Leslyn would have to bring at least 90% of her people with her to become king-maker. 

But that's the also-ran strategy, not the main focus of her campaign. If Leslyn is in, it's because she wants to win and so she'll adjust her political strategy accordingly. She will no doubt look to political history both in Canada and the United States for tips. Why did some campaigns win big and why did others only win because of a couple of factors in an otherwise extremely close race?

I'm for Charest but I'm still looking forward to see what her strategists come up with. Leslyn has always been for a big tent campaign with respect across the board for all points of view, including those she does not share personally.'s my prediction: at worst, Lewis improves her final position in this race as opposed to last time. If she gets the wind in her sails, it will suddenly be a battle for number two as number one likely plateaus on the second round of ballot ranking. 

Then it becomes all about relationships and alliances made before party members vote. If her supporters know the endgame before we vote and more importantly, are okay with it, then anything becomes possible, at least in theory.

Remember that Joe and Flora was designed to work both ways when in fact it didn't. But it was a sound piece of strategy nonetheless. Leslyn is likely to be a think-out-of-the-box candidate and as such, the other major candidates in this race better take her deadly seriously. Quite literally, anything can happen as final outcome in this leadership race. Watch Lewis go and wait for more than likely major surprises.

Saturday, 26 March 2022

What Will Peter Do Now?

Now that I've reached a decision given the fact that Peter is out, it naturally flows from that that I wonder where MacKay is going to end up. I can see two possible scenarios: the first hinges on whether Peter is at least open to running again in Central Nova. Here, the family dynamic will be important. He either stays or goes, maybe even back to Toronto?

If Peter runs next time, IMHO, all the more reason to consider embracing the Charest campaign. Charest is, at the very least, middle-of-the-road, while others such as yours truly consider him as a Red Tory. Charest and his people need to see the big picture and be proactive about that: you know, a big blue wave that starts out in Atlantic Canada and moves westward. Hello! Who's the guy most likely to get that wave generated and off the ground? Why MacKay, if he's interested that is.

Personally, I'm biased as hell but IMHO, it would be a crying shame if Peter was out for good. He has so much more to give to Canada in his political career and would make not only a good fit with Charest but also would reasonably dovetail Jean when it comes to policy and the federal government's role in the overall scheme of things.

So...whatever Peter decides, it will and should be respected. But IMHO, Peter needs to join Team Jean rather than support any of the other candidates. I guess we'll find out soon enough which way MacKay ultimately goes.

Peter MacKay is many things but one thing he's definitely not is being politically irrelevant or yesterday's guy. That's what I'm counting on. In my perfect hockey world, I see Peter and Jean passing the puck to each other as they break for the net. With both of them going hard at it, how can the puck not go in?

Friday, 25 March 2022

CPC Leadership Race: Neutral NO MORE!

I just came back from Charest's speech and frankly in good conscience, how can I possibly remain neutral after a speech like that? It was a doozy.

In short, I'm sold now on his candidacy.

Ukraine: It's Up To BOJO To Save The Free World.

On Ukraine, the democratic world needs World War III and we need it YESTERDAY. This is a war against the devil incarnate so we really only have two legitimate choices: NATO, the EU and others can fight Putin now or absolutely be drawn in further down the road after hundreds of thousands of civilians will have been massacred. It's long overdue for the rubber to hit the road.

The United States got in late in WW I & WW II...what would have happened to the Free World but for Pearl Harbor? Exactly.

In short, it's up to BOJO to become Churchill. The UK must get in now, along with the Commonwealth and that will force the Americans' hand. FINALLY. Once the UK is in, the other self-respecting democracies will get in and Putin will be one hell of a lot closer to meeting the noose in The Hague.

Saturday, 12 March 2022

MacKay Is Out.

I respect Peter's decision and reasons for same. But I won't be a fucking phoney and pretend to suddenly find wild enthusiasm for Poilièvre, Charest, Lewis or anyone else. Nope, as H.W. would say: not gonna do it...

In short, I'm out too and will be neutral going forward. It's very disappointing. What can I say.

I was looking forward mightily to taking all of them on but now...what's the point? Ron Agnew has just left the building. LOL.

How To Kill Your Own Campaign.

As that wise political strategist Warren Kinsella would say, when you're on defence, you're losing. You know, Charest on the colour of his political cloth, the carbon tax, Quebec's sales tax, etc.

But the other leg of the two-legged stool is equally important: when you've got practically no credible policy of your very own and have already become totally obsessed with sinking Charest, well, that just won't cut the mustard, even if you happen to already be "TRUE Blue." That's Poilièvre, Byrne and company in a nutshell. The candidate ain't exactly an easy sell, nor is Charest for that matter and original policy is microscopically thin, so it's all out on offense and only that against the Charest bogeyman. Not too impressive. In short, you can't win on just I'm not Jean Charest.

Meanwhile, Chong is out, which is a strategic mistake given his political bent and MacKay isn't in. If Peter wants to play, he can't prolong this too much longer otherwise he'll lose credibility as time passes him by.

I won't in any way pretend to be neutral and unbiased. That would be farcical. A lot of Conservatives know exactly where I stand. The question is, where am I going politically in this leadership race?

How Biden And Western Leaders Become De Facto War Criminals À La Putin.

This is Biden's latest position and it's, for lack of a more definitive word, G-A-R-B-A-G-E.

What the fuck are Biden and the others waiting for? 50 million dead? My God, how can our leaders have such stupid blinders on and not be willing to immediately take on the Anti-Christ's latest representative on Earth?

NATO and the West need to get that demonic bastard now, not later. Waiting amounts to indirect appeasement à la Chamberlain when all of us already know that Ukraine is only stop one, think Georgia and Moldova next.

This narcissistic psychopath-sociopath will also take on former Soviet republics that are now NATO members, so collectively get that in your heads now. 

Prepare for general mobilization and do it yesterday. 


Charest: It All Comes Down To This For Most Conservatives.

This party needs a leader with a long track record. That person also has to be intimately familiar with every aspect of the party and its positions. That person has to have a proven record of dedicated service to the party and Conservative governments, post 2003. 

Jean Charest says he's a Conservative. Then let him produce his membership information for all to see. If he's been discreetly all in since 2003, then great. If not, then stop pretending. He better not be a Johnny-Come-Lately nor another Erin O'Toole -- who's one thing while in the PCPC, another while premier and finally a third incarnation while running for the CPC leadership.

It brings me back to Clark's remark about Orchard about being a tourist in the [legacy] party. Could Charest win a general election? Sure he could. But the membership is calling the shots in this race and they will go for the genuine article. That's why if Charest isn't 100% authentic, he and his people might as well simply stay home.

Like I said before, watch Harper's cabinet ministers. They will show the way to a considerable extent. For Charest to win, he needs at least a plurality of ministers. But where the rubber really hits the road is whether he can actually do that. Colour yours truly skeptical at best.

CPC Leadership Race: God Please Help Us.

Oh my God, what a disaster in the making: this leadership race is shaping up with the potential not only to fracture the party but could also ultimately destroy it.

Yes, it's that serious. It's all about polarization, attacks on the other and a refusal to come together on policy, not to mention a leader.

Just look how Poilievre and Byrne are playbooking it: Charest, the devil incarnate, who has no history with or loyalty to this party, coming in and it's takeover time.

At the other end, Charest, yes, a veritable tourist in this party with a strong sense of entitlement for a guy who's never been a member.

Like I said before, what a disaster. There's no middle ground for anyone to safely occupy and talk of Harper not being neutral. I hope that's not true as it would only make matters much worse.

So, Charest now will announce on Thursday and he's already sealing the deal: first with Brown and now Tasha. Some are crying about an attempted fix almost already being in.

So, expect a battle with elbows up and chips that fall where they may.

Meanwhile, the Trudeau Liberals are happier than a pig in shit watching us make complete fools of ourselves.

Ours is now a party only about self. Just another Trudeau party. No bold vision for Canada, no economic remedies, no course to chart for the future. All that remains is a war of entitlement and absolutely no consensus on either candidate, or future direction for the party and the country.

Like I said, it simply can't get any worse.

Our Genius Strikes Again.

This Prime Minister is not known to be the swiftest but even he should not be this stupid: he announced today additional sanctions on unnamed Russian oligarchs and he stated publicly that those names came from a list compiled by jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

Great going, genius. That should be enough for someone to "find" Navalny dead in his prison cell.

A Message To CPC Members.

We'll know the result of the leadership on September 10th. Another ranked ballot, for better or worse.

Here's my message to all of you: first off, this party is not the PPC. More importantly, nor are we the PCPC. So, the membership will be giving Charest a critical look, to say the very least. Charest is expected to announce tomorrow (Monday).

But a lot of them will want to follow the lead of Harper cabinet ministers, not MPs. Who will the Harper cabinet rally around, mostly? Highly doubt that person will be Charest.

God Bless Mike Pence!

Pence tells GOP donors the party has "no room in this party for apologists for Putin," drawing contrast with Trump

Fuck Trump!

Jake Tapper.

May God Bless Jake Tapper. He got it exactly right on Ukraine and the appeasement of various administrations in the United States, going all the way back to Clinton right up to Trump.

Putin: They're Deliberately Targeting Hospitals, Schools and Civilians At Large.

With this, Putin has sealed his fate. As if using cluster bombs wasn't already enough. He will end up at the end of a noose for war crimes. 

This is pure evil, the work of the Anti-Christ, so declare war now. Evil must be wiped off the face of the Earth, period.

Just how far will this demon seed have to go before NATO and the EU finally get it? Because sooner or later, NATO will be backed into a corner and will have to find the resolve they should have already found a week or two ago.

Need more proof of evil at work, just look what they've done to Kinsella's comment section  -- like I said before, this is a war between good and evil so clean his fucker's clock now!

Are NATO Members Humanitarians?

Each of you is sentient, you see what's going on in Ukraine day after miserable day. So, ask yourselves this question: the Ukrainian President and Foreign Minister have it exactly right, just how much suffering and death are NATO members willing to let the Ukrainians endure? 

You need to get out of that mindset that you are a defensive alliance. People are dying right across from your borders. You can't do nothing and fortunately, you and the EU are not doing nothing but remember that by not doing nothing, you invite an almost inevitable attack on at least a NATO member in eventual retaliation. Put another way, Russian attacks outside Ukraine are both predictable and likely. 

With that in mind, you can join the fight now and limit the bloodshed, not to mention shorten the time to victory for Ukraine or you can do it later, when there are no legal niceties available to keep you out of World War III.

Hitler went into parts and then all of Czechoslovakia. The West was foolishly in solely reactive mode and did nothing until he invaded Poland. And surprise, surprise, NATO is still as cowardly now as the West was then. Make no mistake, when Putin inevitably attacks NATO, it will be war writ large. Better to fight for the good right now than to wait and do it later when circumstances on the ground effectively mean you have no other choice. 

Putin Is Losing.

The world is watching and seeing how the Ukrainians are defending their country with far more success than anyone thought. This invasion is transforming before our eyes into a guerilla war and that is never to the advantage of the aggressor.

That's when the invading army gets bogged down, worn away and ultimately cut from their supply lines. In short, without supplies -- especially fuel -- an advancing army can no longer advance.

Add to that the fact that Putin is a lousy military strategist. He's more in the mould of Hitler and that isn't good for troop morale, especially given the fact that perhaps only 30% of the invading force are not conscripts doing their one-year mandatory military service. That puts the writing on the wall.

Putin is stuck with lousy options in this war: he can go full force and nuke countries but that's a suicidal strategy and he knows that. Sure, Russia like the United States, the UK and France have a sub-based part of a nuclear triad but no one's subs are less detectable than those of America. So, that means in a nuclear exchange, American forces would launch such a wide ranging retaliatory strike that Russia would quite literally be at risk of incineration. So, that's an empty threat at best.

Then comes his declaration that any country that enforces a no-fly zone will be considered an active wartime participant. No kidding. For now, a no-fly zone remains off the table but ultimately will come into being after Russia takes action to quell the steady incoming flow of Stingers, Javelins and other defensive weapons. In short, Poland now has a big X on her back and sooner rather than later, Putin will directly take on NATO and that will inevitably mean one thing: at least the political end of Vladimir Putin. That will be followed by what most offensive forces never think about: war crimes trials and the meting out of punishment.

Like I said on the top, Putin is losing and will one day pay the consequences.

Ukraine: Canada's Prime Ministers Must Unite.

I think now is the time for our former prime ministers to act in unison: they, like the rest of us are seeing the blood flow every day in Ukraine. 

Dare I say that as former PMs, Clark, Mulroney, Campbell, Chrétien, Martin and Harper have a special obligation to rally the country to Ukraine's side.

It's my hope that each of them will speak with the others regularly and hopefully reach a unanimous decision, or at least a consensus, in favour of military intervention against Putin's Russia.

Ukraine: It's Good versus Putin EVIL.

If the United States will not move militarily, then it's up to the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to come to the aid of Europe, just like we did in the last two World Wars. This is a time for leadership and statecraft to free the world of the Putin menace. The Ukrainian people are waiting and desperate for our direct military intervention.

Someone, anyone, will have to break NATO’s solidarity of troop non-intervention NOW and come to Ukraine’s aid.

The Putin demon-seed says he’ll nuke any western nation that comes to Ukraine’s aid militarily. My response: so be it and expect a retaliatory nuclear strike that will quite literally wipe Russia off the face of the Earth if Putin does that!

It all boils down to this: like I said before, NATO can fight Putin now, or fight him later, after he’s enslaved Ukraine. The Baltic States are next and in short order.

Fight You Cowardly Bastards, Fight!

Zelensky is begging NATO's heads of state and government to fast-track membership. But they are too scared. Fucking cowards.

We should be ordering general mobilisation across NATO, period.

The Anti-Christ wants to reconstitute the Soviet Union by force and that's exactly what Putin will do. 

So, find some balls and take him on now! Zelensky is brave and dignified. The rest of us are nothing more than pathetic losers and Chamberlains...

Remember that The Baltic States will be next.

When Putin Shows You Who He Is...

Is a full blown Ukraine invasion in the cards? Sure looks that way. Russian troops and local militias have been on Ukrainian soil for the past eight years and now Putin's forces are in these so-called newly Russian recognized independent republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.'s not too much of a leap to expect Russian forces to invade and ultimately occupy the rest of Ukraine, which they will surely do.

And that's when the rubber will finally hit the road for NATO members. Sanctions, even unprecedented ones, are all good and well but they are no deterrent nor sufficient enough to make Putin blink, much less back down. 

That means the local resistence will quickly have to take the form of guerilla warfare and that, at best, to use a Rumsfeldism, risks to be a long, hard, slog.

And then there's the elephant in the room that Biden and the rest of them don't want to talk about, namely, that Ukraine along with Australia, Finland, Georgia, Jordan and Sweden are NATO Enchanced Opportunities Partners. Put another way, either that means something important or it means nothing. 

Seems to me that NATO will have to quickly take a stand otherwise we play into Putin's hands and all of us who are sentient already know what that would mean in Round Two for the NATO member Baltic states. Because, as sure as I'm breathing, that's where this Russian incursion is going next. Make no mistake, if Putin goes there, that means all out war with NATO, period. But if Putin got away with Ukraine, won't he think he can get away with it a second time? Precisely.

That means NATO has to quickly hold the line in Ukraine, if an all out invasion happens. In short, it will be red-line time and we won't have any other practical choice, unless we're prepared to permit and concede an eventual Russian domination over much of former Soviet Europe. Yup, it is that simple. Fight now, or inevitably fight later over a far larger expanse of Russian occupied territory. There is no other credible way out. Putin has already seen to that.

Freeland And Ukraine.

It's no news flash to any of you that I long ago ceased to be a Freeland fan but I want to say to her, her family and friends that all of us, regardless of party and political position are with her and thinking and praying for the safety and well being of her loved ones during these extremely tense and trying times. May God protect Ukraine and all its people.

MacDonald: Please Cross The Floor.

After all, you'd be a perfect fit with this Prime Minister. Somhow, some way, the two of you have got to be related.

Truckers And THEIR Treason.

As we head into week three, blockades continue and lawlessness doesn't take a holiday. I don't know what some truckers are drinking or smoking but they're basically clueless: THEY don't get to decide who's prime minister or who are members of a given federal government. The collective arrogance of this lot and the nutbar quality of it all.

Some of them want to put Trudeau on trial and according to them, they have a divine right of kings to decide when mandates go. Who elected them to anything? So, in short, why don't they simply fuck off and go home.

And if that doesn't work, throw the lot of them who refuse to disperse in jail and let them cool their clearly deluded heels in the slammer for a month or two. Cause sorry bozos, mob rule won't take hold in Canada. Don't like the management at the federal, provincial, territorial or local level, then get off your ass in the next election and vote them out. can go quietly into the night, finally, or the cops and the army can crack heads. Either way, as sure as I'm breathing, you'll go. It's your choice. Do you still feel lucky?

Showdown At The Bergen Corral?

Look, I've always been a Bergen admirer, even though we didn't always agree on policy, I felt that Candice had natural leadership qualities and that she would make at least a good leader. I still think that. She's been chosen as interim and IMHO, the party is in good hands.

Now, let's address the matter of nameless cowards who've already begun sniping about her and disrupting her leadership even before she barely got out of the gate. Let's call a spade a spade: those leaks are coming from at least one MP and that person or persons need to be found, identified with proof and then summarily tossed from caucus with no chance of ever being integrated again at a later date. In short, you burn the leader now and you pay the price forever. Let that person be the next one to get the heave-ho treatment.

As for Candice, she needs to know that as interim, she must only go with winning issues that increase support among Conservatives, the unaffiliated and others for the party. Any issue that divides up the country and puts all of us against each other is to be avoided like the plague. Why do I say that? Because I know Liberals, especially Trudeau Liberals, and nothing would give them more delight than to see our party divided and fighting with each other under an interim as HimselfTM comes up with a pretext to go into an early election against Bergen. All of us need to be mindful of that because it is a distinct possibility, strategically speaking.

So, Candice, if you want to grow this party, grow our support among the unaffiliated and previously non-voting Canadians, then drop the truckers and do it now. Otherwise, this party will die from the death of a thousand cuts and handoff to the new leader in an incredibly weak position. So, in the final analysis, it's Bergen's choice and hers alone. I'm for building bridges, expanding and growing the party. Hope she is for that as well. I want her legacy to be the strongest possible handoff that's possible to the new leader. I want the baton passed off with Bergen strength, not Bergen weakness. Like I said before, only Candice can cement her legacy as leader and only she can provide the initial rocket fuel that will likely propel this party straight into power after the selection of a new leader. That must be, and likely will be the Bergen legacy.

O'Toole: Stop The Hemorrhaging.

Sir, have you no common sense? Resign already. Don't put the party and the membership through another day of this. Just go, for heaven's sake, go.

A Third Of Caucus Turns On O'Toole.

Thank God. Bring on the early leadership review if O'Toole doesn't resign quickly.

Saturday, 29 January 2022

Stupid O'Toole...

Well, what about it? Did O'Toole meet with trucker leaders? You know, those truckers who did not, at the very least, punch out those demon seeds carrying the Stars and Bars and worse yet, Nazis flags!

So, what do the two sad sacks have to say about those two evil doozys? Come on Bernier and O'Toole, what exactly is your read on those disgusting and truly evil spectacles?

So far, that thundering and roaring sound you hear is not truck engines -- it's called fucking crickets.

Evil is as evil does, period. Guess even Bernier and O'Toole are smart enough not to want to have anything further to do with that? Again, so far, crickets.

This is way beyond a red line in the sand. This is Canada and it's our duty to have nothing to do with Nazi scum or racist demon seeds.

Wake up you gullible morons. Evil is royally playing you. Truckers, do something about it and do it yesterday, otherwise you are no better than those devil worshippers.

Ukraine: Why It Means War With NATO.

Totalitarian despots tend to see themselves as military geniuses of the highest order -- just think of Hitler in Russia -- but they're far from it. Putin is no exception and will fatally miscalculate from the get-go.

A Ukraine invasion is no longer an if, it's now an almost inevitable when. Here's why. Putin wants Ukraine out of the western orbit and he wants that yesterday. He knows that can no longer be accomplished politically by the vote so military action is his only option.

Here's my take: when it comes, it will be a Blitzkrieg attack on three fronts: forces crossing into Ukraine from Russia, Belarus and Crimea. They will likely attempt a pincer movement to quickly overrun Kyiv.

An easy enough in but probably with an unexpected number of Russian conscript casualties. Putin thinks he has Biden on the run politically, and he's right but that's not seeing the forest for the trees.

That's not the real deal. Since 2020, Ukraine is a NATO Enhanced Opportunities Partner and that's big news. When military push back comes from the West, the UK will take the lead given the especially close relations between London and Kyiv.

After all, it's MI6 who broke the news of the puppet players Russia plans to install in office once Ukraine has been taken.

It's no coincidence that Britain has already sent anti-tank weapons while the United States limits itself to ammunition. 

In the end, it's London that will call all the shots in the defensive response and just like in two world wars, America will inevitably follow with the rest of NATO bringing up the rear.

So...Putin better be careful what he plans for: a quick win on the ground will sooner or later turn into the Russian invasion of Afghanistan and we all know how that one ended for The Kremlin.

How ironic will it be for him when Putin's misadventures in Ukraine ultimately lead to his political demise in Mockba.

You read it here first.

CNN: Will Biden Bounce Back?

OK, let's take this one on what with both Biden and Harris' numbers tanking badly. First off, 22 is a mid-term election, which by its very nature, is more often than not a PROTEST vote. Translation: that means voters are largely dissatisfied with how it went and opt for the opposing party. That likely means Democrats losing many House seats and probably Senate control. No mystery there, just a traditional track record.

Now to Biden. Remember how in the campaign Biden was supposed to be a one-term president? Exactly...Lord Acton got it right at the individual level meaning that once in power, the average Joe suddenly grows into the idea of a solid eight years. So, right out of the blocks and looking to 24, Biden is no LBJ.

Just look at the historic track record of other presidents who were exactly where Biden is now in their first year in office and then got re-elected as chief executive. Think Reagan, Clinton and Obama. With that in mind, I don't expect Biden to create an opening.

Then there's the WSJ Schoen and Stein piece: you know, Hill's third run for the presidency with Bill cheering her on. Well, let's get it out there that Hillary and Bill make Machiavelli look like a rank amateur -- I mean, look up prepositioning in the dictionary and you'll find WJC and HRC. That's just the nature of the beast, looking for a leveraged opportunity.

Sure, the Dems have tacked left under Biden and that's been met with mixed reviews, to put it kindly. But being Bernie and AOC-lite ain't exactly like a political death sentence. Much depends on the economy which will dictate the incumbent's faith, perhaps à la Carter and perhaps not. Right now, the economy continues to tank while hiring goes up. Talk about a bifurcation and God only knows how it'll break in the voting booths.

The Clintons already have two problems coupled with a tremendous asset: they're unabashedly centrist and that will move the needle but HRC is also yesterday's news, just like Trump. Right now, both are convinced they respectively are a lead-pipe cinch for a huge political comeback. Maybe, maybe not.

Is the United States really thirsting for retreads on both the left and right? Independents will likely get to decide. And then there's the elephant in the room that Albright positively nailed: women, or at least a considerable number of them, going out of their way to vote Republican to deny Hillary the prize. My late Mom used to refer to that subsection and type as "catty bitches" and trust me, there are plenty of them around, yes, even in 2022. 

Take from all of the above that  HRC is no EMK -- she won't be challenging Biden any time soon. Now, if Biden clears the decks, then it's a go but not being nice with the White House isn't a solid political strategy. That, at the very least, gets Biden's back up and makes him ready for battle. Hill should know better. 

In my world, America is continually evolving and mostly for the better. Why should politics be any different? To Democrats I say, find younger, centrist, principled leadership and to Republicans, get your heads examined if you're still hard-core for Trump. 2024: in a nutshell, a political adventure with a reliable outcome almost no one can predict.

May God bless the United States of America!

Quebec Anti-Vax Tax: Risky.

Well, you've got to give Legault A+ for political balls because this thing is double-edged risky. It could quite literally get the CAQ re-elected in the biggest political landslide in Quebec history, or if not handled right, do the reverse.

First off, it's legal and entirely within provincial jurisdiction. But will the tax be equitable and will it be on an income sliding scale? Sure, unvaccinated people come at roughly the same cost to the health sector but what happens if or when someone can't pay via the tax return?

In addition, what role will the Charters pay? We have two of them. So, it's potentially somewhat akin to cutting off your nose despite your face.

But it's 100% gutsy and breaks the 100% safe mould that is the standard boilerplate of most governments. Some will argue that the same thing could be done by imposing vaccine passports across the board, you know, where you can't leave your home without being at least partially vaccinated. They have a point. But then again, nothing better concentrates the mind than being hit in the wallet. So, the principle is sound but is probably being implemented at the wrong end of the horse -- why not simply levy the tax after the fact, on those who are unvaccinated and have already gone through the health system? But then again, that doesn't do one iota to steady or even reduce the inflow of patients into hospitals...

So, maybe just maybe, Legault has finally run out of options and that's why this is a go and probably should and must be a go.

Thank You, Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

I can't let this day come to a close without thanking The Right Honourable Stephen Harper for sending out an e-mail to help The Honourable Peter MacKay retire his leadership race debt.

Too bad our current party leader doesn't have that much humanity or innate modesty.

I humbly ask all of you who can to please help Peter finally retire his leadership debt. Kindly join me in this effort. I will do my share again this year. Thank you very much!

Unvaccinated Libertarians...

Give your heads a shake for Christ's first it was merely damningly inconvenient to see elective surgeries cancelled across the globe but we're now long past that -- with people DYING became of these narcissistic idiots! 

The hospitals are so crowded with unvaccinated oafs that cancer and heart disease surgeries are being put off or cancelled. So, thank you so much you assholes for killing those people by ricochet. 

Happy now?

From Over At Kinsella's To Dr. Douglas Kinsella.

Just left and it put me in a mood for further writing on divinity, so here's my two cents for whatever it's worth: it begins with the wise words of Douglas Kinsella, M.D. Kinsella told his three sons to love people. I would add, treat people the way you'd like to be treated.

Mine is a world where I embrace a supreme being known to me as God. He, she or it reflects humanity's best possibilities, options and ultimate outcomes.

My God is a loving and teaching God, never a cruel or vengeful one. My God loves all of us, despite ourselves.

My God provides the individual white board but doesn't keep score. In fact, from Day One to the day we breathe our last, we dutifully provide the Os and Xs -- we, and no one else, make our post-Earth bed. For those of us who have not a shred of doubt about a heaven and a hell, we, individually, put ourselves there as God either rejoices or weeps for us.

In the end, action or inaction inevitably has consequences both on this planet but most especially in the after-life. If only we thought more of that with each passing day.

So...that's my view of divinity, right or wrong. Make your own luck in the here and now and strive to put your best foot forward. That can only make this world a better place and each of us a far better person. Enrich humanity and watch it thrive and grow beyond worldly measure.

The best is yet to come for future generations with each one leaving Earth a far better place than the way they found it. And Thank God for that.

O'Toole, Resign.


The Canadian Press:

OTTAWA — "Canadians unwilling to be vaccinated against COVID-19 should be accommodated through measures like rapid testing, Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole said Thursday as health experts warned the lightning-fast spread of the Omicron variant threatens to overwhelm hospitals."

O'Toole isn't right in the head if he thinks ANYONE should accommodate the unvaccinated unless they have a legitimate medical exemption, period.

Like all Canadians, I have an iron-clad right to stay alive and not have my health, well being and psychological equilibrium destroyed by transmission of COVID-19 from a quite deliberately unvaccinated person. NO ONE has a right to transmit COVID-19 to another person. The vaccinated and boosted actually care about others -- that's why they got vaccinated in the first place. Sadly, if they transmit COVID-19, it will be against their will and after having taken all the precautions humanly possible thus far known to medicine and science. 

The unvaccinated are classic narcissists who each only care about the health and well being of three people: ME, MYSELF & I. Never, ever, acceptable.

And any politician who plays to those reckless fools is a greater fool than all of them put together. 

" The Conservative leader said he refuses to criticize people who aren't vaccinated and believes "reasonable accommodations" should be provided to people like truck drivers to avoid service disruptions and exacerbating supply chain challenges."

OK, Erin so back your bullshit: get in the truck with an unvaccinated driver and stay with him in the cab for at least an entire week. You will certainly be accommodating him. You could even do some of the driving...provided you haven't dropped dead first from COVID-19 transmitted by your smiling partner in the driver's seat.

Talk about failed leadership. I truly feel sorry for the party, caucus, its members and supporters. What a poor excuse for leader. This is where I get off supporting this guy.

Make No Mistake!

It's still the Trump Party. They may call it Republican but it long ago ceased to be that -- what with every supporters and his or her dog and cat still pledging fealty to the former President.

A case in point: Perdue's primary challenge against Kemp. Incumbency only gets you so far, and not necessarily over the threshold. 

I'm betting that Perdue takes it in a run. And then there's the matter of Cheney's challenger also endorsed by Trump. Wyoming is pretty much Cheney country so Hageman might need divine intervention in her run.

The other thing to watch is what's left of moderate Republicans in the House. They're making noises about splitting the party and decamping post-2022 but hey, I'll actually believe that one when I see it.

So...short of President Trump suddenly dropping dead or hitting the slammer, he's still got some pretty damned good odds.

Presidents Obama and Trump both lost plenty of seats in their respective mid-terms. Right now, President Biden could quite conceivably do even worse. It's all about legislative output and if Biden blows the BBBA, along with the John Lewis and the other Voting Rights bill, Biden is likely done for in 2024.

Love him or loathe him, Trump's solidly on track to get the last laugh come November.
