There's been a change in the political weather in Manitoba.

  Something is happening---and we don't know what it is, yet. It's like a change in the weather; your knees ache, the temperature drops suddenly, or the wind picks up and you don't know what's happening, but you know something is. There's been a change in the political weather in Manitoba. For the past two-and-a-half weeks the NDP's biggest allies at the Winnipeg Free Press have pumped out a barrage of commentary attacking the government, which individually and collectively are so flimsy they only indicate that the writers are grasping at straws. Columnist Niigaanwewidam Sinclair went full Tasmanian Devil on Education Minister Wayne Ewasko for calling Opposition leader Wab Kinew a ham. In the Legislature Ewasko said that Kinew "seems to stand in this house on a day-to-day basis pretending to be some kind of actor. He's no Adam Beach, Madam Speaker." Sinclair, who belongs to the Aboriginal Church of Perpetural Outrage, thundered that "Minister

Obby vs Wabby: The real story of Handshake-gate

The Black Rod has seen exclusive video of Turban Day at the Manitoba Legislature including the tense handshake confrontation between NDP leader Wab Kinew and Government Culture and Heritage Minister Obby Khan. Supplemented by unbroadcast video of media scrums with the two men it’s not hard to determine who is telling the truth and who is lying about the incident. You won't get this information anywhere else because the local news has been running interference for Kinew from the day he announced he was running for leader of the Manitoba NDP. Khan was among a number of people called up to address the crowd in the rotunda of the Manitoba Legislature regarding the province's first-ever Turban Day event. His entire comments were caught on videotape so there's no misundertanding of what he said and what Wab Kinew says he said.  Khan stood at the podium, which was 6 feet in front of an NDP banner set

Revealing the Heather Stefanson magic trick that has scared the NDP leading to the October election

  Uh oh. They say dogs can smell fear. Well, the hounds must have been howling this weekend after Winnipeg Free Press readers saw the latest opinion column from the city's King of Fake News, Dan Lett, who has suddenly realized his hopes and dreams may be swirling down the toilet. Just over a week ago U of M political scientist Paul Thomas wrote a column advising the NDP of the preparations needed to take power from the Conservatives who have been badly trailing the New Democrats in the polls for months. Keeping with the same theme, two days later, Lett wrote that all those polls, especially the one showing a "remarkable" 20-point lead in Winnipeg for the NDP, "suggest the coming election is his (NDP leader Wab Kinew's) to lose. " But by week's end, in a column dripping with flop sweat, Lett was putting distance between himself and his political hero. And it put a new light on his interview with Kinew. " Manitoba government bets big on nurses’ forgiv

Blowhard Bombs Out Bigtime: Our 2022 Newsmaker of the Year

  With 2022 receding fast in the rear-view mirror there's just enough time to ordain the annual Newsmaker of the Year. He arrived with the biggest anticipation, the biggest name, the biggest voice, the biggest lead in the polls, and the biggest hype in the press. He ended the year as the biggest loser, and that's not a reference to having the biggest waistline in the race to be mayor. Ladies and gentlemen, say goodbye to Glen Murray. Goodbye because his crash-and-burn campaign was like watching the Hindenberg drop gently from the sky before erupting in uncontrollable fire, consumed in minutes. That sucker will never fly again. With an election set for October, the press treated Murray's anticipated candidacy like the Second Coming. Murray, who was mayor from 1998 to 2004, had come home to retake the reins at city hall. When would he announce? The official announcement came on June 22.  To the press, the election was over. Nobody could beat Glen Murray. His campaig

Kevin Klein pops the NDP bubble

  The reporters in the Winnipeg media were so excited they almost peed their pants on Tuesday as the results trickled in from the Kirkfield Park by-election.  This was IT. The NDP were going to take this safe Conservative riding and ignite the long-predicted sweep of city seats, foreshadowing the removal of the PC's from office in the general election next year. Poll after poll had the super-woke transexual NDP candidate in the lead. (He was a female---okay, a lesbian---before he became a man, starting his trek to masculinity, beard an all, in 2014.) With only the advance polls to be counted, the reporters were on the edges of their seats preparing their personal celebrations. But...then...the horror.  Conservative candidate Kevin Klein was declared the winner! By 160 votes. Time for the pundits and reporters to pick themselves off the ground, wipe away their tears, and dust off Plan B, which is getting a big frayed from constant use. CBC's Barley Kives went to the usua

A disgraceful week of Fake News by Winnipeg's news media

  Two cases of blatant fake news in the Winnipeg mainstream media this week serve as prime examples of why consumers continue to abandon the MSM by the thousands. The most egregious is the smear campaign being conducted in the Manitoba Legislature by the NDP and Liberals against Kevin Klein, the Progressive Conservative candidate in the upcoming Kirkfield Park by-election. The smear was led by MLA Dougald Lamont, who has officially donned the crown as the slimiest politician in the province. Lamont is the "leader" of a rump group of 3 MLA's who sit in the far back benches under the banner of the Liberal Party of Manitoba, though they have no chance of ever becoming the government, and can't even elect enough members to qualify as a legitimate 'party' in the Legislature. Lamont has been attacking Klein for working with Peter Nygaard, the "disgraced fashion mogul" as the Winnipeg Free Press labels him. Nygaard is in jail in Toronto awaiting trial on
