Warren Kinsella: Politics in the new era

Politics when I was growing up: voters voted for someone/something. Politics now: voters vote against someone/something. — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) June 12, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Dear Yasir Naqvi and Toronto Police: wake the Hell up

Watch.

Warren Kinsella: Trump strikes out

Trump just fell into 3 big traps: 1. He accused Comey of perjury. 2. He said he'd testify under oath. 3. He said he'd meet special counsel. — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) June 9, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Canada One What?

The big day is just a few days away.  You’d never know that, however. As noted below, I remember the centennial – I was a kid and living in the United States, for Chrissakes, and I knew all about Expo and Trudeau and everything else that was going on.  It was wonderful. Same with the ...

Warren Kinsella: I can’t stop reading this

Amazing. Cotton: Do you think Donald Trump colluded with Russia? COMEY: That's a question I don't think I should answer in an opening setting. pic.twitter.com/fbJyxt7KYw — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) June 8, 2017

Warren Kinsella: From next week’s column: Comey hammers nails in Trump’s coffin – many of them

Among the [James Comey testimony] lowlights: the Trump administration “lied” about Comey, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Trump “defamed” Comey when he claimed that the FBI had lost confidence in their former director. There was a “massive” effort by Russia to intervene in the 2016 U.S. election and elect Trump. Comey kept detailed notes ...

Warren Kinsella: Levant v. Awan

He loses before our nation’s highest court. That’s justice. I wonder: are the Supremes now anti-Semitic, too, “rebels”? The Supreme Court of Canada has dismissed a request to hear an appeal of a lower-court libel ruling against right-wing commentator and self-described provocateur Ezra Levant. The plaintiff in the case was Khurrum Awan, a lawyer based in ...

Warren Kinsella: Holy. Shit. 

HOLY SHIT. Q: Do you think Trump colluded with Russia? Comey: "I can't answer in open session." #ComeyHearings — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) June 8, 2017

Warren Kinsella: As I predicted 

Here. You’re welcome. 

Warren Kinsella: Highly-scientific poll™: who is gonna win in Ontario?

Vote now, vote often! The Ontario election is one year away. Who is going to win? — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) June 7, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Comet on Trump: “It was very concerning”

Wow.  Here’s Comey’s prepared statement.  It’s going to be quite a morning, tomorrow. This is obstruction of justice, by any reasonable standard.  The only reason why Comey does not come out clearly and say that, I suspect, is because he knows he will be asked this tomorrow: “Well, if you felt it was obstruction of ...

Warren Kinsella: JDL arrests in Kevin Metcalfe case

The video showing the assault on Kevin here. Update from Kevin here: So I just wanted to provide an update on the assault case I’m involved in. I just got off the phone with 52 Division and can confirm pending charges against two individuals: member of the Jewish Defence League Max Bocknek, and a previously ...

Warren Kinsella: Ontario snap election, pro and con

Rumours are rampant. Tweeters are a-Twitter. Pundits are prognosticating. Herewith, the Grit pros and cons. PRO eliminates the PC’s huge financial advantage capitalizes on post-budget bounce potentially catches the opposition off-guard  recognizes that things could get worse the longer they wait CON we could lose – badly

Warren Kinsella: Rebel, rebel, your face is a mess

Here’s what The Rebel is saying about a fine Canadian company, Sears, which quietly declined to advertise with The Rebel.  Got that? Okay. And here’s just one thing found on The Rebel’s web site: If you can make sense of any of that, drop me a line. 

Warren Kinsella: Saving Trump from himself

Now in HuffPo! My preferred graf: You’ll never get him off Twitter. Ever. He thinks he’s The Shakespeare of Twitter. So, invite people to tweet at him about challenges they face. Have him commit to reading a certain number every day, and develop solutions for them. On Twitter. It’ll satisfy his craving for attention, and it’ll ...

Warren Kinsella: I think Dave Khan can be Premier of Alberta

My friend Dave was elected Alberta Liberal leader on the weekend. He’s an amazing guy, and I believe he’s got what it takes to win. He’s also got a few things in his favour: The ideological extremes are arrogant, and have (stupidly) left the Alberta political centre wide open The notion that a Liberal option ...

Warren Kinsella: Help Sleeping Giants shut down “alt-Right” sites in Canada

What’s Sleeping Giants? Basically, it’s citizen-run Twitter accounts which try to persuade advertisers to boycott far-Right web sites like Breitbart and The Rebel, (which was founded by Andrew Scheer’s top aide, BTW). It works.  You can read about the results here and here and here. There’s a Sleeping Giants Canada account, too.  It’s here. What ...

Warren Kinsella: Scheer is a scheater

7,500 votes.  That’s much more than the margin Scheer “won” by. That’s an actual scandal.  But what would you expect from a leader whose campaign guru helped to found the alt-Right web site The Rebel?

Warren Kinsella: Somewhere, Kim Campbell’s head just exploded 

That, or Kim was a him. “Definitely not,” said Trudeau. He later added: “Although I will say, I have one daughter and there is something very special about imagining a woman prime minister. I think it’s long overdue. I just don’t think we have to wait that long. I think it should be sooner than ...

Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: saving Trump – from himself

Can Donald Trump be saved?  Most Americans – and most non-Americans – don’t want to, of course. They want him gone: impeached, indicted, imprisoned. Whatever it takes. But his legions of opponents lack the means. Impeachment won’t happen until the Democrats have sufficient numbers in Congress – and that’s many months away, if it happens ...

Warren Kinsella: Alt-Right Japanese-made SUV spotted on return to TO

Alt-Right wants to fire Kathleen Wynne. Vehicle driven, shockingly, by porcine old white guy.  Oh, and snap election? Who does that benefit, exactly?

Warren Kinsella: Terror: three things

My first book was about terrorism.  What I learned: Don’t give what them what they most want  Don’t turn more people into terrorists Don’t hesitate to find terrorists and terminate them Donald Trump always does one and two. He doesn’t ever do three. 

Warren Kinsella: 20 years ago today

20 years ago today. I totally forgot about it. One of my Daisy colleagues reminded me.I would’ve been good at it, I think. 

Warren Kinsella: Rebel, farewell?

We can only hope. A growing number of advertisers in Canada are feeling the heat for placing ads on The Rebel, a website founded by Ezra Levant as a successor of sorts to the now-defunct Sun News Network. …Sleeping Giants, an anonymous group, created a Twitter account in November to publish screen shots of ads ...

Warren Kinsella: It’s not a good week to be an Ontario Liberal. It hasn’t been a good week in a long time.

Let’s recap. The Ontario PCs raised $16 million last year, and the Ontario Liberals – the, you know, government – raised $6 million.  Ten million less.  The government. The most powerful mayor in Canada – a very, very popular guy who has helped the governing Liberals out of many tight spots – has all but ...
