Warren Kinsella: Conrad Black Sabbath! Bulletin Kill! SFH!

If you die and miss this, you will die unhappy.

Warren Kinsella: World to Trump: you first

Warren Kinsella: Mad about Trump and Paris Accord? Don’t get mad. Sing along!

Warren Kinsella: I love Justin Trudeau. There, I said it.

Just getting that out here, about this. Takes big constitutional balls to say what he has said, very clearly. Ipso facto, I (and Coyne, probably) love the guy. As Premier Philippe Couillard appears set to kick off a renewed push towards negotiations for Quebec to sign on to the 1982 Constitution, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seems ...

Warren Kinsella: Toronto city councillor says his constituents have a “Grade Two” understanding

Who could it be? What Toronto City Councillor wrote that his/her residents have "a grade 2 understanding" of issues? #topoli #onpoli pic.twitter.com/cXzAl7PpIM — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) April 19, 2017

Warren Kinsella: Most brilliant Twitter exchange ever

You’ve probably seen this by now, but it still makes me spit my morning covfefe all over my desk. Here’s the Unpresident: Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 1, 2017 And here’s ...

Warren Kinsella: It was fifty years ago today

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.  A half century.  Incredible. I don’t remember it coming out, on June 1, 1967.  I was six, and we were living in Dallas.  Much later on, I recall, certain songs would start to leave a mark – Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, Within You Without You (I shared ...

Warren Kinsella: If it were all about money, the election would be over before it started 

…and if elections were all about who had the most to spend, Ross Perot and Pete DuPont would’ve been president.  But, still. This is extraordinary. Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives raised more than $16.1-million through political donations in 2016, a record haul that far outstripped the governing Liberals as the parties prepare for next year’s election. Kathleen ...

Warren Kinsella: CBC: Ex-ombudsman André​ Marin ordered to pay $68K in legal fees after failed lawsuit

Link here.  Story: Former Ontario ombudsman André Marin has been ordered to pay $68,000 in legal costs to the provincial legislature and the Office of the Ontario Ombudsman. The Superior Court of Justice ruling comes after a judge quashed Marin’s wrongful dismissal lawsuit against his former employers in March. Marin has been ordered to pay $18,552 to the ombudsman’s office ...

Warren Kinsella: “Tell everyone on this train I love them.”

Two heroes, killed by a hater.  This was hard to read.

Warren Kinsella: Scheer: the grinning extremist

From Michael Coren’s carefully-researched piece in the new NOW magazine: “Scheer’s religious faith is especially significant. He is a traditional Roman Catholic, the son of a deacon. He is an opponent of abortion, equal marriage, trans rights and euthanasia. He voted against Bill C-16, which adds “gender expression or identity” as a protected ground to ...

Warren Kinsella: Me? Nominated for what? Hello?

Just got this note from an old friend, who himself happens to be one of the best lawyers in Canada: Warren, you see this? You’re being nominated for top 25 most influential lawyers in Canadian Lawyer mag in the Human Rights, Advocacy and Criminal category for your work getting that asshole’s publication banned from Canada ...

Warren Kinsella: A track from SFH’s new album leaks!

It hasn’t been mixed or mastered yet, and the engineer actually cuts the song off at the end.  But it’s rather Hot Nasties-ish, I must say. The addled Gregorian chant at the start? It’s an inside joke, like the whole band is.

Warren Kinsella: The Liberal war room moves to the CPC leadership convention

Fun story in the new Maclean’s, here. I blabbed about how we made sausages. So shoot me. Kevin Bosch, research director for the Liberal Party, wore a blue dress shirt on Saturday and a Conservative-branded nametag like everyone else. His partner, Braeden Caley, the Liberal Party’s communications director, slinked at the back of the room. On ...

Warren Kinsella: Frank Carter discovers love

I first discovered the wonder and mystery of Frank Carter ten years ago, when in Britain to see the Sex Pistols’ latest filthy lucre tour.  Frank was on the cover of the NME, because he was the coolest person in the world.  I was intrigued. Bjorn and me and some other guys went to see Frank ...

Warren Kinsella: Don’t mess with my pal Mr. Velshi

Warren Kinsella: I don’t think he likes politicians

Warren Kinsella: Papa Smirk

Now in HuffPo!

Warren Kinsella: “We have lots of things that we’re going to do that we won’t say before the election because we want to get elected”

Story here. The knuckle-dragging, red-necked Landowner loon Jack MacLaren should have been kicked out of the Ontario PC caucus long ago.  He’s an idiot. He, and his “Trillim Party” are irrelevant, now.  But this statement MacLaren made in that video will linger for a long time: “We have lots of things that we’re going to do ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: Introducing the Smirker™

TORONTO—Smirk. The economy. Justin Trudeau. Free speech. His deceased mother. ISIS. On every subject, no matter how sad or serious, Andrew Scheer would smirk. It was, well, weird. His rictus was so off-putting, we started to forget what he was actually saying. Which, for him, was pretty fortunate. Minutes after he won the Conservative Party ...

Warren Kinsella: From tomorrow’s column about The Smirker

To wit: “Barton: But do you, yourself, believe [in gay marriage]? Scheer: I, it’s, look, I don’t – it’s absolutely – our party dealt with this issue in Vancouver and, you know, there was a specific policy plank in our platform, and I think members decided, a lot of social conservatives who, you know, have ...

The #CPC just selected the evil Richie Cunningham. #cpcldr pic.twitter.com/TpNUv5PlEF — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) May 28, 2017

Warren Kinsella: This tweet about #CPCldr is quite popular 

Seriously: we all know #CPC members mostly hate @JustinTrudeau. But Canadians mostly don't. They need a new strategy. Seriously. #CPCldr — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) May 27, 2017

Warren Kinsella: HuffPo: in which I am quite mean to everyone, pretty much


Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: the next CPC leader – and what they should be doing 

Boring. Drab, dull, flat, insipid, uninspiring, monotonous, prosaic, tedious, interminable. The leadership race of the Conservative Party of Canada has been all these things, and so many more. If you consult your nearest thesaurus for things that are synonymous with “boring,” like I did, you will find no shortage of words that fit. You might ...
