Warren Kinsella: The #RecipeForHate book tour begins!

…with my pals Supriya and Matt on AM640 this morning! You can listen in here:

Warren Kinsella: The pivot: Rod Phillips, and why Patrick Brown needs to emulate Jean Chretien

My old friend (“old” because we’ve known each other for just about two decades, not “old” because we are both, you know, older) Rod Phillips is running for Patrick Brown’s PCs in the riding of Ajax in the next provincial election. Is it a huge pick-up for Brown?  It is. Is it good for Ontario ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: oppo works – and it can work against Trump

Hate him.  The 70 per cent of Americans who self-identify as Democrats or Independents share one thing: they hate, hate, hate Donald Trump. They want him gone. Impeached, indicted, whatever. Gone. The 30 per cent of who still call themselves Republicans, however, love him. They adore him. They stick with him. No amount of controversy, ...

Warren Kinsella: School Library Journal: Recipe For Hate “a compelling and jagged read”!

  .@sljournal calls Recipe for Hate by @kinsellawarren “a compelling and jagged read.” It’s available now: https://t.co/qsIMJwVVV2 pic.twitter.com/NOdaPvY231 — Dundurn (@dundurnpress) October 30, 2017 With a title ripped from a Bad Religion song, this book does not try to hide its punk flair. X and Kurt Blank are best friends in Portland, Maine at the ...

Warren Kinsella: Trump campaign conspired with Russia: guilty plea proves it

That Robert Mueller is one crafty guy. He knew the Unpresident would say (a) the Manafort/Gates indictment doesn’t mention me or my campaign (b) they were bad guys I haven’t had any contact with in a long time, and (c) me and my campaign did nothing wrong. Mueller knew Trump would do that.  He knew. ...

Warren Kinsella: Trump’s campaign manager is indicted – for conspiring against the United States

Here is the first page of the multi-count indictment. Read it. It is extraordinary. And there can be no doubt, now, that Trump’s campaign was effectively run out of the Kremlin. Have a nice day, President Pisstape.  Your misery is just beginning, you racist, sexist sonofabitch.

Warren Kinsella: But I mean this in the nicest possible way

One of these things is spherical, perfectly-round, white and full of hot air. The other is a balloon. #ableg #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/jzSvCQJkye — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) October 30, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Good morning Americas! It’s #IndictmentMonday!

It will be such a good day, too!  My God Almighty, how I enjoy the misery and despair that will be unleashed today! Trumpkins being bankrupted by legal bills! Once-close Trumpsters turning on each other before grand juries! The inner circle’s mug shots living on the Internet, forever!  Make Assholes Guilty Again! Who do you ...

Warren Kinsella: And people wonder how Trump for elected 

Wonder no more, etc.  (Even here in Canada.) Support for Bill 62: Quebec 76% BC 69% Saskatchewan 69% Manitoba 69% Ontario 66% Alberta 64% Atlantic 57% — Karl Bélanger (@KarlBelanger) October 27, 2017

Warren Kinsella: First charges filed by Mueller

Here you go, Trump. May your misery be long and deep. A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter. The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for ...

Warren Kinsella: BREAKING: Just got this from someone who was at today’s “deleted email” trial

The OPP, as you may recall, criminally charged two Ontario Liberals for “deleting” some emails which weren’t deleted. The guy they used to do the deleting is Pete Faist. That’s well known.  What wasn’t known until this afternoon is this: THE OPP HIRED PETE FAIST TO DO THE SAME THING FOR THEM.  From someone who ...

Warren Kinsella: Is Trudeau losing B.C.?

I don’t think so, and I said so to Mr. Nuttall at The Tyee: Political consultant and former North Vancouver Liberal candidate Warren Kinsella rejects that idea. Kinsella told The Tyee the Liberal strategy has always been to win as many seats across the board as possible. Although some “central Canadian” strategists may suggest trying ...

Warren Kinsella: Is Mr. Selfie in trouble? Is the dud a stud? Is Jagmeet dead meat?

Let us peer into the oracle that is Abacus (who, full disclosure, Daisy uses all the time, and proudly so).  It contains all sorts of interesting factoids and fun.  A chart, for your perusal: It astounds and astonishes me that Blandy Scheer is this competitive – but if Abacus says he is, then he is. ...

Warren Kinsella: School Library Journal: Recipe For Hate is “a compelling and jagged read”!

From the just-out review of the School Library Journal of Recipe For Hate: With a title ripped from a Bad Religion song, this book does not try to hide its punk flair. X and Kurt Blank are best friends in Portland, Maine at the beginning of the punk rock movement. Kurt acts as a Nick ...

Warren Kinsella: #TBT: the anarchic, historic roots of Recipe For Hate, the NCNA and the Social Blemishes

Top:Herr Marchand.  Top right: Bill Corcoran and a rabble-rousing punk. It’s Thursday, which means old folks get to circulate photos of themselves when they were younger, better-looking and less preoccupied with mortgage payments. My contribution to today’s #TBT is the photo above, taken sometime in 1976.  It’s the St. Bonaventure Junior High Student Council in ...

Warren Kinsella: Can someone explain to me why the GOP think the Steele/Trump oppo file is a good thing to talk about?

Because, from this old war room guy’s perspective, it ain’t.

Warren Kinsella: My #MeDo column on #MeToo is over on HuffPo now

Here it is. And here is a snippet: I have been resisting #MeToo. I have. For starters, I am generally pretty unenthusiastic about hashtag campaigns. Most of the time, they are just slacktivism, i.e. the false belief that posting something on social media is enough. It isn’t. Ever. And, most of the male responses I ...

Warren Kinsella: 24 years ago today

My 1993 war room colleague Bruce Hartley reminded me: 24 years ago today… the first of three majority governments…balanced budgets; restoring Canada’s place in the world; protecting national unity; the Clarity Act; the Ottawa Treaty; independent Canadian foreign policy; diversified trade initiatives; major investments in universities and research; reversing brain drain; broadband for all; advancements ...

Warren Kinsella: ‘SFH Kinda Suck’ is out!

Me and Simon of Ugly Pop picked ‘em up at Precision Pressing this afternoon – and they look great! Coloured vinyl too! You can get yours over at Ugly Pop’s website! To celebrate, in true SFH fashion, I filmed the first official video, below, for ‘TV Show.’ Special bonus: Finn drops by to pogo!

Warren Kinsella: Recipe For Hate is being featured on Apple’s iBooks!

Check it out: Apple is promoting Recipe For Hate on their iBooks web site! My ever-patient Dundurn Press publicist, Kendra, says that Apple has decided to promote pre-orders of the book on their Sneak Peaks pages.  A short download of the book is there, too, to encourage folks to check it out. Is this a ...

Warren Kinsella: I don’t want to be yet another man writing about how #MeToo affects me

I have been resisting #MeToo.  I have. For starters, I am generally pretty unenthusiastic about hashtag campaigns.  Most of the time, they are just slacktivism – ie., the false belief that posting something on social media is enough.  It isn’t.  Ever. And, most of the male responses I have seen have been completely idiotic.  Stuff ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: when do you cease to be a country?

She’s on the bus! The second she pulls down that veil, arrest her! When do you cease to be a country?  When do you stop being a people, a nation? Romeo LeBlanc, who I loved, had an answer.  “When children sleep on the streets,” he said to us once.  “When they have nothing to eat.  ...

Warren Kinsella: You are invited to the Recipe For Hate book launch – and the SFH Kinda Suck record release!

Twenty bucks will get you the book and the record (both signed)! Ten bucks will get you the bands and a bad rash. 

Warren Kinsella: “The Charter protects all Canadians, every one of us, even when it is uncomfortable.”

Justin Trudeau said that, back in July, when he was asked about his government paying $10 million to Omar Khadr.  It’s a quote: “The Charter protects all Canadians, everyone of us, even when it is uncomfortable.” And here’s what Justin Trudeau said three months later, when the Quebec Legislature passed a racist law, a “law” ...
