The socialist destruction of Argentina

At the present rate, North America is on the same path.

Gun control bill a grandiose but ultimately hollow gesture

Lorne Gunter

Just when I didn’t think it was possible for the Trudeau Liberals to get any dumber about gun control, along comes Monday’s proposal to cap the number of handguns in the country (not ban, but cap). This is simple virtue-signalling by the Liberals intended to impress their followers, most of whom know nothing about firearms or firearms crime except the sensational cases they see in the news. And it is yet another attempt by the Trudeau government to win moral points by being anti-American. FULL COMMENT.

Something evil has invaded our nation

By Ben Stein

"I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here. But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what.

I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life--so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind! You can't justify this insanity:

• If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

• Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

• It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

• Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.

• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?!

Nothing makes sense anymore - no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it's racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is A-OK! Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast. Speak up!"

New $789M museum is out of touch with reality

May. 13, 2022

By Octavian Lacatusu on CHEK-TV

There’s an old Romanian saying: “satul arde și baba se piaptănă” — meaning, ‘the old lady combs her hair, meanwhile the town burns.’ This is what swiftly came to mind when the province announced its grand plan to spend just shy of $800 million to replace the Royal BC Museum. What makes the phrase even more ironic is that it comes at a time when far more pressing issues are hovering ominously over Greater Victoria Area and Vancouver Island, and have been so for several years now. Let’s start with our infrastructure. MORE


Canola oil diesel expansion fuelled by B.C. climate tax credits

Tom Fletcher

Parkland Fuels is committing $600 million, most of it from tax credits earned by meeting B.C.’s low-carbon fuel standard, to expand its capacity to make diesel fuel from canola oil and other renewable sources at its Burnaby refinery. Renewable fuels are mixed with conventional diesel or gasoline to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and producers receive a tax credit for fuels below the province’s “carbon intensity” target, and debits for producing fuel above the standard.

'Greenism' has helped Putin fuel his war machine

March 10, 2022

REX MURPHY – For some environmentalists, nothing is more important — not industry, not employment, not national security, and certainly not national economies. Anything that “contributes to global warming” must yield to their first dogma — that if we do not obey their alarms and edicts, subscribe to their millenarian nightmares, we face nothing less than the end of things. It is the green version of the Bible’s Revelations. FULL FEATURE

Trudeau gets harsh media treatment on Europe tour

Dan McTeague

By Dan McTeague
Prime Minister Trudeau travelled to the UK recently for meetings on the war in Ukraine, and his performance prompted some harsh media coverage there. One columnist noted that Canada’s image-conscious Trudeau was up to his tiresome “green energy” virtue-signaling, while saying nothing about what Europe actually needs – Canada’s energy resources.  The piece summed up Trudeau’s all show no substance performance with a beauty pageant sneer: “thank you Miss Canada”. (Welcome to ugly island, dreamboat Justin Trudeau (
