In the-lightbulb-finally-went-on-department, Dominique Anglade, at long last quit as leader of the liberal party and vacated her seat in the National assembly.
Now the question is who will replace her.
As per the voting attitudes of quebec, it should not be anyone black, Muslim, Asian, Jewish, female, lbgtq+2 or an immigrant from anywhere in the world.
That of course leaves a white, male, christian pure-laine quebecer. Anyone else will have the same snowstorm in July chance to beat the caq that Anglade had, and even then it's a stretch.
It is interesting to note that we have been hearing people are feeling sorry for Madame Anglade. Can we talk?
She only got the job because no one else wanted it at the convention. As time passed, it was clear that while she is bright, smart, even very smart - she was not a leader. At all. She could not unite the party, was unable to raise money and in the end lost about 10 seats in the last election. Her best before date had long expired.
Then there's our genius finance minister and deputy prime minister Chrystia Freeland who is so out of touch with the little peeps she is making Justin look good. And that takes a lot.
In an effort to 'identify' with the little peeps aka Canadians who are actually suffering as a result of inflation coupled with her and Justin giving away billions and billions of dollars during covid she said the following:
"I personally, as a mother and wife, look carefully at my credit card bill once a month. And last Sunday, I said to the kids, ‘you’re older now. You don’t watch Disney anymore. Let’s cut that Disney+ subscription,'” she explained. “So we cut it. It’s only $13.99 a month that we’re saving, but every little bit helps.”
That peeps, in a nutshell, is what is running our government. Entitled, arrogant, out-of-touch-living-in-their-ivory-tower politicians. They have no clue how much food costs have risen nor what it costs to drive a truck, drive to work or try to buy a home.
Clearly she took a page out of Justin's do-you-know-who-I-am book. She is as pompous as he is and they deserve each other. Why?
Day after day, Justin refuses to answer the following question: Who stayed in the $6000 USD room in the Corinthia Hotel in London for five days?
Why can't he just say it was him? Everybody knows it was. His blindness of what an entitled jerk he looks like when he doesn't answer the question is spectacularly jaw-dropping.
Polieviere should ask him one question every day. Did you stay in that $6000 a night room? Every day until he answers. And every day Justin doesn't respond, he is singularly keeping this story alive. It boggles the mind how the back-room boys don't dump him.
Tonight are the US Mid-Term elections. Believe it or not, the best explanation of this day comes from Al Jezeera. We will send out a second Blanche Report later tonight, although many of the results may not be known for a few days. We already heard that 20% of Arizona's voting machines don't work.
...About one-third of the seats in the 100-member US Senate are up for grabs, along with all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives.
...Governorships, state legislatures, and local councils and school boards will also be contested around the country.
...How many House and Senate seats will be up for grabs? All 435 House seats will be contested in November, while 35 senators will also be elected.
...How are seats in the House and Senate distributed? Each state, regardless of its population, gets two Senate seats, while House seats are distributed to the states based on their size.
And now the big question: What would happen if Republicans took back Congress? One word answer: Gridlock
There would be a lot of conflict between Congress and the White House, and the GOP would look to block any progress on Biden's 'agenda'. The republicans could run out the clock confirming any potential Supreme Court appointments, and they could block any further judicial nominations.
And the best part: Congressional investigations into Trump would come to a halt, and then, the republicans could go on the offensive, finally, at long last, investigating Hunter Biden and his father the president's involvement with his son's illegal activities.
A final note about tonight: We will remind you that in the 2016 election, 95% of the polls predicted a Hillary Clinton win. We know what happened.
So whatever the polls are pushing - and that's what they are doing - ignore them. We will only know the results after the votes have been counted and that
When we read this piece we were not surprised but seeing it in writing confirmed our suspicions.
You still see this all the time: People wearing masks while alone in their cars, or riding their bikes, or taking a stroll in the woods. Apparently they skipped their high school science class on parts per million — catching the virus outside is all but impossible.
So who are those people?
Before we answer that question and before you throw something at your computer screen we must make a disclaimer: We are very well aware that covid is still out there, and along with the flu and bad colds, will be a threat to everyone's health this winter.
Republicans mostly think the pandemic is over, but only 1 in 5 Democrats think so. Now guess who are wearing masks while riding a bike or hiking outside. ve that the pandemic is not over. Can you figure it out? If not, call Anthony Fauci who will enlighten you.
In the how-quickly-they-learn department on how to spend OPM (other people's money), Mary Simon, who hails from Nunavut, and is now our Governor General - the Queen's representative - learned very quickly how to live like the Queen on your dollar.
She recently took a group to Dubai. Below is the breakfast and dinner menu. Keep in mind what everyone else gets for breakfast on a plane - that is if you get anything: half frozen eggs that are supposed to pass for an omelette, a frozen roll and if you're lucky, a half dead muffin:
Breakfast: French Crepes with sweet caramelized peaches, Potato Rosti and Turkey bacon.
Dinner: Caprese salad with Balsamic vinegar, pan fried scallopini on fettuccine, creamy mushroom sauce with sauce on steamed asparagus and grilled red peppers or Beef Wellington with Red Wine jus, Roasted potatoes with garlic and rosemary and glazed baby carrots
Dessert: Red Velvet cake or Red berries and chantilly cream.
The cost was well over $200 per person. Wonder what she eats when she goes back to Nunavut. Caribou, seal and whale food are definitely not of the same ilk as caprese salad.
Seems the Donald is announcing he is running for president again on Tuesday November 15. One thing is for sure if he does this: the news stations will be jumping for joy. Boring news will again be a thing of the past.
One of the reasons he is announcing now is because he is trying to get ahead of Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida. Here's a headline for the donald: It's not going to help you. You may not like the right-wing politics of Ron DeSantis, but he's a normal person and is wildly popular.
In the last go-round, Trump beat the daylights of all those running against him for the presidential nomination: Ben Carson (sleepy), Mike Huckabee (uber boring), Ted Cruz (slimy), Marco Rubio (aka little marco), Chris Christie (mired in scandals), John Kasich (who?).
This time Trump has met his match. DeSantis is not afraid of him and can give it back as easily as he can take it. He will not cower in the face of Trump's antics. At least this fight will be even.
And for all those insanely out of their minds over Trump running again, the picture says it all: Deal with it.
