Warren Kinsella: Erased

Life is too short. Gord Tulk – he of the nearly-4,000-comments-does-this-guy-work – is gone, for good.  This is my space, with my rules, and cheap shots championing the “free speech” rights of neo-Nazis are not welcome, particularly with lots of litigation underway.  Find a new sandbox, Gordon.  You have been erased. Also erased: a nutty musician ...

Warren Kinsella: Parsing a Premiers’ popularity

Angus Reid released its semi-regular Premier thing last week, and I missed it with all the Nazi-fighting.  But, as usual, it tells a story: The poll may or may not be accurate, 21 times out of 20, plus or minus 101 points.  But it sure is fun to prognosticate about. Some quick takes: At the top, ...

Warren Kinsella: Snippet from next week’s column: what movie character reminds you of Justin Trudeau?

I love the movie, still, and I also think the comparison works.  If you disagree, tell us what movie character he most resembles? He’s hard to hate.  Tom Mulcair and assorted Tories try, certainly, but they usually just come off sounding bitter and/or jealous.  Trudeau (unlike his Dad, unlike Stephen Harper) is the Lloyd Dobler ...

Warren Kinsella: SFH at the Linsmore

Backing Conrad Black Sabbath. Nobody dimebagged me.  L-R: Steve Deceive, Bjorn von Flapjack III, Wink, Snipe

Warren Kinsella: Nazi hunting: today’s events, summarized

Lisa being interviewed by CBC outside the courthouse. What a day! I have to tell you: when we were before the Justice of the Peace and the Crown early this morning, I wasn’t at all confident we were going to win.  The pre-enquete hearing, as it is called, is not commonplace.  And we were essentially ...

Warren Kinsella: We won. This just happened.

Warren Kinsella: Who says playing geriatric punk rock doesn’t pay?

Warren Kinsella: X: Recipe for Hate in the new Quill and Quire!

Here: Warren Kinsella gives kids a glimpse into the heyday of punk with Recipe for Hate (Dundurn), which details how a group of punks took down a gang of neo-Nazis after the murder of two of their friends. It’s actually for adults, too, so don’t get fussed about the YA tag. You can pre-order here. ...

Warren Kinsella: Is the Mayor of Peterborough in a big conflict with that casino?

I have heard very, very troubling things. This, for example, is extraordinary and pretty damning. The good folks at the Peterborough Examiner asked him, straight out: Councillors didn’t debate the prospective sale in public – that happened in closed session. But they did vote unanimously on the plan in the open meeting. Mayor Daryl Bennett voted too. ...

Warren Kinsella: Now is the time for all good #ONpoli folks to come to the aid of the party

…if they’re Ontario Liberals, that is: The Liberals are the choice of just 23% of decided and leaning voters — down from 34% — and would secure just nine seats if an election were held now, the pollster projects. Forum Research found that 44% of decided and leaning voters polled support the Progressive Conservatives and ...

Warren Kinsella: U.S. Supreme Court rules offensive band names are okay

Here. Thank Christ, maaaan.

Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: what Trump could’ve done, and didn’t

Undersell and overperform. Those of us who had the honour and privilege of working for Jean Chrétien knew that aphorism well. It was his mantra, and therefore ours, too. It worked. Chrétien was never once defeated in his 40 years in the political game. He won three back-to-back majorities, and he was the most popular ...

Warren Kinsella: Rebel Media on Finsbury: we’ll let the neo-Nazi speak for us

Robinson is a long-time white supremacist. He’s also a Rebel Media correspondent. The “English Defence League,” which he founded, has always been unashamedly neo-Nazi. Why do Andrew Scheer’s senior people have anything to do with this insanity? Here is Rebel Media's Tommy Robinson justifying the attack in London's #FinsburyPark. The mosque is now a hub for ...

Warren Kinsella: Thought for the day 

Warren Kinsella: Trump is the illegitimate president

Not merely because of what he has done since he became president. But also because of what he did during the election. It has amazed me, for months, that millions of Americans agree that Russia hacked the 2016 US election – but those same Americans somehow believe that the hack was ineffective.  I think that is stupid, ...

Warren Kinsella: New SFH web site!

Now available for public viewing and your punk rock edification. Right here, maaaaan.  

Warren Kinsella: Accident victims 1, greedy trial lawyers 0

This is a huge decision, with historic implications. For usurious trial lawyers, it is an unmitigated disaster: they now face the realistic prospect of class action lawsuits by clients they have manipulated and ripped off. Meanwhile, anyone seen Ontario’s Attorney General? He’s been as invisible on this file as he has on a neo-Nazi rag ...

Warren Kinsella: June 15, 2004

Dr. T. Douglas KINSELLA, CM, BA, MD, FACP, FRCPC. Like some men, and as was the practice in some families, my brothers and I did not hug my father a lot. As we got older in places like Montreal, or Kingston, or Dallas or Calgary, we also did not tell him that we loved him ...

Warren Kinsella: Trump is under investigation for a crime – finally 

From the Washington Post: The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said. The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct ...

Warren Kinsella: My column on Americans and the day they died

Warren Kinsella: In yesterday walks tomorrow

Remember this? I was a kid, but I sure do: That was October 20, 1973. By November 17, Nixon was declaring that he was “not a crook,” when he was. By July 24, 1974, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Nixon must turn over all of the While House tapes. Three days later, the ...

Warren Kinsella: Ten reasons I am quite satisfied with the Trudeau government

Doing the right things – daycare, defence, etc.  Not doing the the wrong things – re-opening the Constitution, etc.  Staying out of the papers Cooling it with the selfie stuff  Underselling, overperforming Conspicuously opposing Trump’s manifest destiny No scandals of significance  No big fights with the provinces  Significant spending on opposing extremists who falsely claim ...
