Oops. MSM attack on Gord Steeves backfires.

Gord Steeves has suddenly been propelled into being the frontrunner in Winnipeg's mayoral race.
And it's not for something he said or did. He can thank his wife for the push.

What? What are you talking about? The MSM says his campaign is finished because of a four-year-old Facebook post by his wife complaining about being harrassed by "drunk native guys."



And that means that finally somebody is talking about something that people care about. Like WHY DOWNTOWN WINNIPEG IS SUCH A SHITHOLE.

Steeves' support is solidified by the trumped-up attack on him, and voters who haven't paid much, if any, attention to the campaign for mayor now know his name.  And they also know he's the only candidate they've heard saying what they want to hear -- clean up downtown.

He's not jabbering about some abstract "vision" of some future city in some non-existent dreamland.  He's talking about this city, here, now. 

Gee, that's BOLD. 

And voters, especially women, are listening to the guy with the concrete ideas for making this city safer.  The critics who want to turn downtown Winnipeg over to the derelicts that harass people day and night have only greased Steeves' way to the front of the pack.

Harassed by drunk native guys? Hell, is there anyone who works downtown or, God forbid, has to go there for a medical appointment, business meeting, Jets game, pick-up, who hasn't been harassed by panhandlers?  And the typical panhandler is -- wait for it --- aboriginal in appearance. Ask anyone who waits for a bus on Graham Avenue how often they're approached.  Then ask them how many times they've witnessed fights on the street between--wait for it--- drunk native guys. And gals, those flowers of native femininity. 

Everybody who works for CTV knows the truth. 

Everybody who works at CBC, and doesn't run home to the suburbs immediately after work, knows the truth.

Everybody who works at MTS Centre knows the truth. 

Everybody who works at Manitoba Hydro knows the truth.

Everybody who works at Air Canada knows the truth. 

The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ annual report for 2012 talked about the assignment of  "10 permanent WPS Cadets means sustained delivery of downtown safety services, related to assisting intoxicated people".  Gee, who could they be talking about?

It doesn't matter how much the Indian Victim industry or the leftwing news media tries to rewrite reality. Thousands of people know who is telling the truth in this faux scandal.

Of course the howling mob doesn't worry about truth.  No, the mob is trying to imply that Steeves' wife, and everybody who agrees with her, are calling all Indians drunks.  That, simply, is a lie.
On any day there are plenty of Indians at the Millenium Library in the heart of downtown.  What are they doing?  Reading newspapers and magazines.  
Nobody calls them drunk Indians.

The food court at Portage Place is full of Indian patrons. What are they doing?  Eating, laughing, socializing.  
Nobody calls them drunk Indians (except for those who are.)

The news media discovered through the various methods of instant feedback (Twitter, Internet comments, Facebook) that there was little sympathy for the drunk native guys in the story. 
CBC, for example, had 311 comments on their Steeves story,  ten-to-one in his favour, before they closed off comments.

So when the critics found they couldn't garner support for drunk harassers of women, the criticism morphed over the weekend -- into identifying the harassers as "homeless". Oh, boo hoo hoo.

Well, these derelicts ARE NOT ALL HOMELESS. We know some come from some Indian reserves.  That means they have homes, just not in Winnipeg.  The respective Indian reserves are their homes.

If you showed up in Berlin tomorrow, would you be homeless?  Or Paris?  Doesn't everyone want to spend a couple of years in Paris?  If you showed up in Paris and declared you had no job, knew nobody with a couch to spare, you didn't speak French and you had no job skills.  But you wanted a furnished apartment---because, of course, you were homeless.  Oh, and toss in a monthly allowance to let you, er, socialize in the manner you've become accustomed to.  How far do you think you would get with the Parisian authorities?

The media frenzy over the "drunk native guys" comment has to be compared with the media's blanket defence of Eric Robinson's racist attitude towards white people that was revealed one year ago this month.

Robinson sent an email, then tried to hide its existence, in which he declared his contempt for "white" do-gooders.  When caught, he declared he had a right to be racist because he was an Indian and whites had mistreated him.

The same news outlets that now falsely accuse Steeves' wife of making a racist comment, defended Robinson back then, making excuses for his racism, trying to explain that attacking whites for the colour of their skin wasn't racist, redefining racism to exclude discriminating against white people.

Prominent among Steeves' attackers is Wab Kinew, the former CBC reporter who now calls himelf a hip-hop artist. Kinew was also prominent among the defenders of Robinson's racism, only he didn't call for Robinson's resignation, the way he called for Steeves to drop out of the race for mayor. 

See, for example, Kinew's music career highlight---'Good Boy', his paean to Matthew Dumas, the doped-up Indian teen who was shot to death in 2005 as he advanced on a police officer while armed with a screwdriver. 

Dumas attracted police attention when he bolted after seeing officers, who were looking for suspects in a robbery. Chased down, Dumas, who was wanted on a warrant although the police chasing him didn't know that, punched an officer and took off again. He pulled out a screwdriver, shook off blasts of pepper spray, and refused to drop his weapon as he closed the distance on a policeman.

Except that's not the way the former CBC reporter Kinew saw it.  Dumas "took the wrong way home", rapped Wab, and was shot because of his "criminal appearance, aboriginal appearance."  Poor boy was shot because of "how Canada's configured", said Kinew.

"There's a cop chopper in the sky should we run for our lives?" rapped the native drama queen.

Well, not if you're not trying to kill a cop, Wab.

But somebody call the infectious disease police. That great red hunter of racists, Wab, and the rest of the mob out to smear Gord Steeves need to be quarantined; they suffer from SRS---Selective Racism Syndrome.

The unreported bombshell conspiracy evidence in the Trudeau/SNC-Lavelin scandal

Wow. No, double-wow. A game-changing bombshell lies buried in the supplementary evidence provided to the House of Commons Judiciary Committee by former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. It has gone virtually unreported since she submitted the material almost a week ago. As far as we can find, only one journalist-- Andrew Coyne, columnist for the National Post--- has even mentioned it and even then he badly missed what it meant, burying it in paragraph 10 of a 14 paragraph story. The gist of the greatest political scandal in modern Canadian history is well-known by now. It's bigger than Adscam, the revelation 15 years ago that prominent members of the Liberal Party of Canada and the party itself funneled tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks into their own pockets from federal spending in Quebec sponsoring ads promoting Canadian unity. That was just venal politicians and a crooked political party helping themselves to public money. The Trudeau-Snc-Lavalin scandal is

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. There, we said it.

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. Oh, you won't find anyone official to say it. Yet . Like relatives trying to appear cheery and optimistic around a loved one that's been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the people in power are in the first stage of grief -- denial. The prognosis for Hydro was delivered three weeks ago at hearings before the Public Utilities Board where the utility was seeking punishingly higher rates for customers in Manitoba. It took us this long to read through the hundred-plus pages of transcript, to decipher the coded language of the witnesses, to interpret what they were getting at, and, finally, to understand the terrible conclusion.  We couldn't believe it, just as, we're sure, you can't--- so we did it all again, to get a second opinion, so to speak.  Hydro conceded to the PUB that it undertook a massive expansion program--- involving three (it was once four) new dams and two new major powerlines (one in the United States)---whi

Crips and Bloodz true cultural anchors of Winnipeg's aboriginal gangs

(Bebo tribute page to Aaron Nabess on the right, his handgun-toting friend on the left) At least six murder victims in Winnipeg in the past year are linked to a network of thuglife, gangster rap-styled, mainly aboriginal street gangs calling themselves Crips and Bloods after the major black gangs of L.A. The Black Rod has been monitoring these gangs for several months ever since discovering memorial tributes to victim Josh Prince on numerous pages on, a social networking website like Myspace and Facebook. Josh Prince , a student of Kildonan East Collegiate, was stabbed to death the night of May 26 allegedly while breaking up a fight. His family said at the time he had once been associated with an unidentified gang, but had since broken away. But the devotion to Prince on sites like Watt Street Bloodz and Kingk Notorious Bloodz (King-K-BLOODZ4Life) shows that at the time of his death he was still accepted as one of their own. Our searches of Bebo have turned up another five ga

Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP's Christian-bashing, cop-smearing, other star candidate

As the vultures of the press circle over the wounded Liberal Party of Manitoba, one NDP star candidate must be laughing up her sleeve at how her extremist past has escaped the scrutiny of reporters and pundits. Parachuted into a safe NDP seat in Winnipeg's North End, she nonetheless feared a bruising campaign against a well-heeled Liberal opponent.  Ha ha.  Instead, the sleepy newspeeps have turned a blind eye to her years of vitriolic attacks on Christianity, white people, and police. * She's spent years  bashing Christianity  as the root cause of all the problems of native people in Canada. * She's called for  a boycott of white businesses . * And with her  Marxist research partner, she's  smeared city police as intransigent racists . Step up Nahanni Fontaine, running for election in St. John's riding as successor to the retiring Gord Macintosh. While her male counterpart in the NDP's galaxy of stars, Wab Kinew, has responded to the controversy over

Exposing the CBC/WFP double-team smear of a hero cop

Published since 2006 on territory ceded, released, surrendered and yielded up in 1871 to Her Majesty the Queen and successors forever. Exposing the CBC/FP double-team smear of a hero cop Some of the shoddiest journalism in recent times appeared this long August weekend when the CBC and Winnipeg Free Press doubled teamed on a blatant smear of a veteran city police officer. In the latest example of narrative journalism these media outlets spun stories with total disregard for facts that contradicted the central message of the reports which, simplified, is: police are bad and the system is covering up. Let's start with the story on the taxpayer funded CBC by Sarah Petz that can be summed up in the lead. "A February incident where an off-duty Winnipeg officer allegedly knocked a suspect unconscious wasn't reported to the province's police watchdog, and one criminologist says it shows how flawed oversight of law enforcement can be." There you have it. A policeman, not

Winnipeg needs a new police chief - ASAP

When did the magic die? A week ago the Winnipeg police department delivered the bad news---crime in the city is out of control. The picture painted by the numbers (for 2018) was appalling. Robberies up ten percent in  a single year.  (And that was the good news.) Property crimes were up almost 20 percent.  Total crime was 33 percent higher than the five year average. The measure of violent crime in Winnipeg had soared to a rating of 161.  Only four years earlier it stood at 116. That's a 38 percent deterioration in safety. How did it happen? How, when in 2015 the police and Winnipeg's police board announced they had discovered the magic solution to crime? "Smart Policing" they called it.    A team of crime analysts would pore through data to spot crime hot-spots and as soon as they identified a trend (car thefts, muggings, liquor store robberies) they could call in police resources to descend on the problem and nip it. The police
