Trudeau to the country: 'I Give Up.'


Where ya bin? you ask.
In the modern vernacuar, we reply: 
Later, dude.

The Black Rod was jolted back into action by the televised news conference last week with the Prime Minister of Canada, 
Justin "Buckwheat" Trudeau.

Trudeau had been jaunting around the world, basking in accolades, while mobs barricaded railroads across Canada, slowly strangling
 the economy and forcing layoffs and shortgages of essential goods.

Finally, shamed by the Opposition Conservatives in Parliament for ignoring the crisis, he reluctantly cancelled the next destination
of his winter world tour---sunny Barbados---and returned to Ottawa.

Less than a week of non-action later, he stood in front of television cameras to make an announcement:  he had no idea what to do.

Yep, that was it.

The leader of a country of 35 million people formally announced to the world that the protestors had won. He had nothing. 

He had tried his best, i.e. begging the "hereditary chiefs" of native bands in British Columbia to end their opposition to a legally authorized pipeline to he coast, and they had informed him to go pound sand.  So he was throwing in the towel.

The sight of the elected prime minister of the country, holding all the power of the country in his hands, cravenly surrendering to
a tiny pack of non-elected chiefs allegedly of territory (22,000 square kilometres) that adds up to a pimple on the ass of the nation
(9,98 million square kilometres), and their tiny mobs of supporters across the country, was shattering.

Even worse, was how this surrender went underreported by the news media. You know, those self-described defenders of democracy. 

Here, the Winnipeg Free Press found room for Trudeau's whimpering stand-down in the second section of their most-read Saturday paper. 

A curling team winning a game go better coverage than the humiliation of the prime minister.

What exactly did Trudeau do during his six days of crisis management? 
Well, he convened his "Incident Response Group". 

Woooooh That sounds important---until you realize its just his toadies in cabinetg who---you guessed it---had no idea what do do, either.

He met wit the other parties holding seats in the House of Commons, except the Conservatives. You know, the political party that won 6.1 million votes in the 2019 federal election, 34.4 percent of the popular vote. Trudeau's Liberals attracted 5.9 million voters and only 33 percent of the popular vote. 

Trudeau, who has trumpeted his belief in "dialogue" silenced the voices of six million Canadians, more than a third of Canadian voters, by refusing to invite the official government-in-waiting to his meeting.  The press went along meekly.

Tory leader Andrew Scheer apparently grew a pair since his loss of the federal election. He called on Trudeau to show some leadership by ordering the RCMP to step in and remove the illegal blockades of railroads across Canada. Trudeau, pandering to his flock, feigned
outrage at the calling of the blockades "illegal".

Trudeau also rejected the idea of calling in the RCMP to enforce the law. He huffed that the police were independent and the government  couldn't tell them what to do. This from the man who secretly intervened in a legal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin, then lied about it to the public for weeks, then, when caught out, declared to always had the authority to intervene.

Only days after Trudeau's 'no mas' news conference, Liberal MPss across Canada were appearing on television calling for an end to
the "illegal" blockades. 

And  by sheer coincidence (no pun intended) the night before Trudeau spoke, the RCMP withdrew from an observation post they had set up on the disputed territory in B.C. to apparently concede to a demand by the hereditary chiefs to leave 'their' land. 

In the week since his declaration of national impotence, Trudeau has waited for someone else to act. He was plausible deniability.

Someone---the provinces, the police---can do the dirty work while Trudeau sits on the sidelines, taking no responsibility but ready
to condemn whenever its politically expedient

THIS is the definition of Liberal leadership.

Of course, Trudeau, the duly elected PM, can  always go on bended knee to the non-elected hereditary "chiefs", just as they insist he do, to formally beg them to get him off the hook.

He could even throw on an Afro wig, paint his face black, and do an amusing Negro monkey dance to break the ice. 
He likes doing that.

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 so much more…

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)---which it could not a…

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 Bebo.com, 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 gang-li…

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 his woman-and-gay bas…

Sex and Drugs in the Peg. Is that what PM Justin Trudeau is covering up?

The Parliamentary Press Gallery spent the weekend yukking it up with Justin Trudeau at the annual gallery dinner, demonstrating that relations between the Prime Minister and the press were back to normal, the master and his voice in sync again. Things had been a little strained a few weeks ago when Trudeau, determined to show that he was a tough guy and not to be trifled with in the House of Commons, delivered a hard elbow to a female MP's breast while manhandling an Opposition MP who wasn't moving fast enough to suit the PM.
The reporters and pundits had to do quite the soft shoe to excuse Trudeau's boorishness when video of the incident contradicted his initial explanation for how his elbow smashed into her chest.  Luckily, the controversy subsided quickly and the press gallery could go back to work--- adoring the Sun King.
And then, last week, damn it, up popped another matter that threatened to blemish the reign of Trudeau II. Its name---Hunter Tootoo.
Hunter Tootoo turned…

It's time to call the family to pay their last respects. Manitoba Hydro is done.

A perfect storm is hitting Manitoba Hydro. Insolvency is inevitable. 

Eight months ago we reported that Hydro was on its deathbed, based on the testimony of the utility's own witnesses at a hearing of the Manitoba Public Utilities Board.

Since then the patient's condition has deteriorated rapidly. It's time to call the family to pay their last respects. 

Last week the Bank of Canada announced that the years of low interest rates are officially over. The Bank raised the bank rate by one quarter of one percent. It was the third rate hike within a year.  It's just the start.

The Bank of Canada expects at least one and possibly two more rate hikes in 2018.  That will bring the bank rate to about half of where the Bank wants it to be.  You read that right---half.  The Bank of Canada wants the bank rate to steady out at 2.5 percent, the lower end of a range the Bank feels is right for a healthy econo…
