First apologies for not getting Blanche out at our regular 7:00 pm time slot. Life happens - for the good and not so good.
So first, we want to know if the czar legault is requiring all the firemen coming from every corner of North America to pass a french test before fighting the over 437 forest fires in quebec. Just asking.
We listen to American news and all we heard from New York was how the air is being polluted by quebec forest fires. And Americans are mightily ticked off. Canceled baseball games, closing Broadway shows, bringing back those dreaded masks, stopping any and all outdoor activity is not sitting well and it's coming from who? Canada?
So let's unpack these fires.
Take a dry forest, add some lightning strikes with minimal rain, and you’ve got a formula for bad forest fires — no human beings needed. So much for conspiracy theories.
Next: As the fires are in very rural areas, it appears what is happening today in Canada’s forests was caused by lightning strikes as far as anyone can tell right now. We can’t stop lightning strikes, and a district attorney can’t charge the lightning with reckless arson.
Clearly the 'green a la montreal's mayor valerie plante' want to blame climate change on the forest fires. Perfect scapegoat, perfect answer and it fits their narrative to a tee. Now read this:
Dearies, we’ve always had lightning strikes and we’ve always had dryer seasons and heat waves. It is impossible to prove that if the earth had the carbon emissions of the year 2000 instead of the year 2023, these forest fires never would have started, or never would have grown large enough to create this much smoke.
Drought periods have always existed, and few modern droughts are as intense as the one that turned the center of the United States into the “Dust Bowl" in the 1930's long before climate change was even a thought anywhere.
Oh, and by the way, the picture above was taken in 2020 from another forest fire that did the same thing as this one. That's what forest fires do.
In the will-they-never-learn department, a federal grand jury in Florida reportedly indicted Donald Trump on seven charges in yet another criminal investigation, this into his handling of classified material after leaving office.
We will reiterate the definition of stupidity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome.
Nothing will come from this indictment because Trump is not the only one who had classified documents in his possession after leaving office.
Let's start with Joe Biden who had stuff all over his house - and in his case, he didn't even know.
We can then move to the infamous Hillary Clinton who had no less than top secret servers in closets in her house - while she was in office. Nothing happened to her.
DeSantis said it right on: “We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation.” The democrats and probably some republicans are trying to make sure Trump can't run in the next election. It. Won't. Work.
Even Elon Musk got into the fray: “There does seem to be far higher interest in pursuing Trump compared to other people in politics.” Duh.
Enough already. Trying to bury Trump in indictments is only going to make him dig his heels in deeper. He clearly has enough money and enough supporters with money to keep fighting these indictments until the cows come home. Moo.
Clearly executives of the Pottery Barn were on the moon when the whole Bud Light fiasco blew up.
We will remind you that Bud Light put the he who said he wanted to be a she but has now come out straight Dylan Mulvaney - on their beer cans. That little advertising adventure cost Anheuser Busch - owner of Bud Light - a cool $27 billion.
Jennings began 'transitioning' at - get this one - the age of 3. We simply have no words. When he was two years old he wanted to play with dolls. And so?
His parents were confused so they went to a therapist who told them - ready - he was transgender and was a girl trapped in a boy's body - at the age of 2.
He had multiple surgeries way too young and has suffered ever since. So now the Pottery Barn is using his story to woo exactly who? Two-year olds who want to transgender? Or maybe their parents who clearly need lobotomies.
People are furious with Pottery Barn. In the end, as with Bud Light and Target, Pottery Barn will lose lots and lots of money because they became political when they should just stick to selling their products. Another one bites the dust.
David Johnston, Canada's rapporteur, testified a couple of days ago concerning his newly appointed role by his friend Justin. Johnston claimed they are not such good friends. Right. And pigs fly.
David Johnston ate out with Justin often, skied with Justin and his family and of course sat on the Trudeau Foundation board. But they are not such good friends.
Up until his 'friend' Justin fed him to the wolves, Johnston had a stellar reputation. When he testified, he looked dazed and confused, like a deer in the headlights.
Justin Trudeau would sell his mother if he thought it would help him stay in power. He's gross.
