Warren Kinsella: Kevin O’Leary doesn’t know who the Minister of Public Safety is

It’s Ralph Goodale. You know, the Saskatchewan Liberal who has been in the House of Commons since 1993, which coincidentally is the same year that Kevin O’Leary moved to Boston, where he has been ever since. Anyway, O’Leary says he’s going to fire Goodale, even though he doesn’t know who he is. My suggestion is ...

Warren Kinsella: Roethke

It’s apparently International Poetry Day, or something like that. Having always loved poetry – and having always lacked the ability to write it well, myself – I decided I would share my favourite poem by my favourite poet with you. He was a drunk, a philanderer, a dropout, a victim of mental illness, and – ...

Warren Kinsella: Having fun writing my own headlines as I watch CNN

Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: campaigns don’t matter – words do

Campaigns matter. That’s a long-time conceit of political consultants, of course.  We say it all the time.  I even worked at a successful political consulting firm which trademarked the phrase. Campaigns Matter™. Campaigns matter – along with its corollary, “the only poll that matters is the one on Election Day” – are central to the ...

Warren Kinsella: Pollyanna says: hail to Canada’s media

It’s not because the NNA nominees are out that I am reminded that we have some of the best media in the world. Not at all. I think, like Jerry Seinfeld, that award shows are horseshit. No, I believe that – for such a small country – we have some of the best reporters and ...

Warren Kinsella: BREAKING: FBI actively investigating Trump-Russia “coordination”

Here we go. It will be hard for the trained seals in the GOP caucus to ignore this.  And, wow. Never thought Comey would go this far. WOW: FBI CONFIRMS IT IS INVESTIGATING TRUMP-RUSSIA LINKS #USPOLI #POTUS pic.twitter.com/qVHdOd3x4E — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) March 20, 2017

Warren Kinsella: This is not a fair way to deal with the other contestants

Spotted by my eagle-eyed friend, Andy Gregg:

Warren Kinsella: Chuck Berry on the Sex Pistols, Clash, Ramones, Wire and Joy Division

…wherein Chuck, RIP, slices and dices my fave bands of all time (save and except Da Brudders), here: The Sex Pistols — “God Save the Queen” What’s this guy so angry about anyway? Guitar work and progression is like mine. Good backbeat. Can’t understand most of the vocals. If you’re going to be mad at least ...

If anyone else in agreement with her? Is so, comment below!

Warren Kinsella: Independent: Sheila Copps on political party skullduggery

…in today’s Hill Times: Politics is at its worst in political parties. Internal decisions are usually made in secret with little recourse to the rules of due process that apply to normal business decisions. …Decisions were made which served to tilt the nomination process in the races to replace outgoing ministers, John McCallum and Stéphane ...

Warren Kinsella: The inevitable concept solo album phase is upon us

SFH notwithstanding, I’m looking for GTA geriatric strings and skins punks for musical cooperation, and possible world domination. Fire off an email if intrigued. 

Warren Kinsella: The best column yet on the Unpresident

By Dowd, naturally: …we’ve never watched a president so hungrily devour his own presidency. Soon, there won’t be anything left except the sound of people snickering. Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories. As he rages in the storm, Lear-like, howling about poisonous ...

Warren Kinsella: Comedy Trumped Hate!

Elvira Kurt – the Elvira Kurt – tweeted this pic of Yours Screwly onstage at Comedy Trumps Hate! I’ve arrived! The show was oversold, and raised at least $12,000 for Planned Parenthood in the US!

Warren Kinsella: Rebel Media’s McInnes, Goldy, Gunn-Reid: “Jews are ruining the world with their lies and their money and their hooked-nose, bagel-eating faces”

Here. Wow. Goldy: The “Jewspapers,” the “Jew World Order.” McInnes: “Jews are ruining the world with their lies and their money and their hooked-nose, bagel-eating faces.” Goldy: “…we need to launch the next Crusade and reclaim Bethlehem.” McInnes: “I’ve actually become more anti-Semitic since I’ve come [to Israel].” Goldy: “Feminism is cancer.” McInnes: “[Palestinians] keep ...

Warren Kinsella: Dear America: We are all laughing at you. Sincerely, The World

Trump refuses to shake hands with someone who, unlike him, (a) is a grown-up and (b) has grown-up sized hands.

Warren Kinsella: Pints of Guinness make you strong

St. Patrick’s Day. So. When I was sixteen or something, at Bishop Carroll, Jim Keelaghan and me briefly wanted to join the Irish Republican Army. We’d wear army jackets and black armbands on St. Patrick’s Day, and darkly mutter, “St. Patrick didn’t drive all of the snakes out of Ireland.” Stuff like that. We were ...

Warren Kinsella: In next week’s column: campaigns may not matter, but words do

To wit: Donald Trump – the combed-over, sphincter-mouthed, racist, sexist, fascistic Human Cheeto – showed all of us that Campaigns Don’t Matter.  You can run a really shitty one, like he did, and still win. But.  But one thing, and it is deliciously ironic.  It is schadenfreude on a scale heretofore unseen in politics.  It ...

I’m honoured to host. Tickets are going fast, here. It’ll be an amazing night!

Warren Kinsella: When you say: “I’m becoming anti-Semitic,” are you anti-Semitic?

Not good. That’s what Rebel Media’s Gavin McInnes said on a video, found here. Here’s some other things he said: “God, [Jews are] so obsessed with the Holocaust. … I don’t know if it’s healthy to dwell.” “I felt myself defending the super-far-right Nazis, just because I was sick of so much [Holocaust] brainwashing.” “…much less ...
