Nice to see a world leader getting grilled every now and then.
Earthquake: It’s now midnight in Germany, and the results that came confirm the trend: CDU/CSU & SPD, the two parties that have for 75 years dominated the German political landscape, and ensured a centrist direction for the country, have lost their majority among German voters
It seems to be mostly a mess. (Apologies for the botched link, fixed now)
I’ve cut this one in half and queued it up to the meat of the analysis.
When you do worse than Andrew Scheer in Toronto…
*Bumped this back up to the top. The video just hit 100,000 views.
Team O’Toole had a golden opportunity to have a long conversation with Jordan Peterson and his over 4 million subscribers right before election day but they weren’t interested. Maybe the strategic thinkers thought the MSM would treat them better. A few hours after this mornings disastrous press conference a new video dropped.
An hour and sixteen minutes with Maxime Bernier.
This week’s media pile-on directed at Alberta and Saskatchewan was a deliberate political trap, timed and designed to benefit the federal Liberals and NDP on Monday.
The strategy: to force a humiliating public policy reversal on vaccine “passports” to anger the libertarians/conservative base and drive votes from Erin O’Toole to the PPC.

He ducks. Every time.
This isn’t the #leadership we need to end covid for good.

GUNTER: Erin O’Toole playing the fool, If he doesn’t believe in his platform, why believe in him?
Want to know why Stephen Harper won three elections (even though two were just won minorities) and Erin O’Toole likely will not win this one? It’s because, when the liberal establishment — political and media — squawked about some right-of-centre Conservative policy, Harper stood his ground. He ignored the liberal carping and whinging and paid voters the respect of explaining why his ideas would work.
Liberals, Conservatives suddenly agree on the need for EV sales quotas. How will they deliver post election?
Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole is the latest federal party leader to promise a national system for proving residents have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
O’Toole says he would work with provinces to devise a national proof-of-vaccination system, adding such a setup would help Canadians during international travel.
O’Toole says he wants 90 per cent of eligible residents vaccinated against COVID-19, and is pledging to cover the cost of time off for employees to get a shot, free transportation to vaccine clinics and a national booster shot strategy that would initially target seniors and the immunocompromised.
Anyone have anything different on the table?
Canada’s annual inflation rate accelerated to 3.7% in July, beating analyst expectations and rising at its fastest clip since 2011, mostly driven by higher shelter costs, Statistics Canada data showed on Wednesday.
Analysts polled by Reuters had expected the annual rate to rise to 3.4% in July, from 3.1% in June.
Those nerves that were getting frayed in the Liberal war room over the bad start to Trudeau’s campaign….
They just got a lot more frayed…..
Did I mention all the polls said the Nova Scotia Liberals would win?
One of the most senior members of the Conservative Party leadership ring has resigned following Erin O’Toole’s decision to fire the Yukon candidate.
Ted Laking, who was the Yukon National Councillor resigned his position Friday morning, according to multiple sources within the party speaking to The Counter Signal off the record.
Jonas J. Smith, the Yukon candidate for the CPC, was booted out of the party by Erin O’Toole on Thursday after rumours spread that he was personally opposed to vaccine mandates and passports.
It was widely expected Smith would win the Yukon race.
Wants to spend more time in Costa Rica.
