Senator who allowed expense abuses to occur refuses to accept any blame

tkachuk

Conservative Senator David Tkachuk obviously doesn’t have an ounce of the quality that is supposed to separate us Conservatives from the Liberals and Socialists – the concept of taking personal responsibility.

Tkachuk when asked about the Senate scandal surrounding Mike Duffy says “I’m disgusted” (see here) but refuses to accept any blame for chairing the Senate committee (see here) which allowed all these abuses to occur.

Also don’t forget that Tkachuk himself skirted the rules to expense $100,000 in personal travel in 1997 and recently defended (and covered-up) for senators caught expensing personal items on Senate credit cards as well as the perk of taxpayers footing the bill for family members’ travels (see here).

Every single Senator on that Internal Economy committee should resign in disgrace and apologize to Canadians for allowing these illegalities to slide by under their noses.

Trudeau blames “right-wing folks of fearmongering” about Omar Khadr

trudeau_root

Liberal leader Justin Trudeau has an impossible time keeping his foot out of his mouth when it comes to defending terrorists but this time he goes even further saying it’s us lunatic conservatives who aren’t being nice to poor little Omar Khadr:

“I think there’s an awful lot of fear-mongering going out there by right-wing folks”

And then goes on to say that he’s happy to have this murderer here in Canada’s jails because of how he was treated by the Americans:

“A much fairer justice system than what he’s faced in the past” (watch here apx 1:35 mark)

This affection for terrorists runs deep within the Liberal Party. Keep in mind that it was Jean Chretien who helped free Khadr’s father Ahmed Said from the Pakistani authorities in 1996.

How many people died because of Chretien’s sympathy and how many would die due to Trudeau’s?

Rob Ford’s fired chief-of-staff accused of being media’s anonymous source

towhey

It’s now become a battle of anonymous sources around Toronto City Hall as one has surfaced saying Rob Ford’s recently fired chief-of-staff Mark Towhey has been the person leaking false stories to the media:

The source within the Mayor’s Office told the National Post that Towhey “is trying to kill the mayor, politically and otherwise,” accusing him of leaking “revisionist history.”

“He’s got an axe to grind with the mayor here and with other people in the office. Certainly with Councillor Ford. He’s trying to blame everyone else for where he is,” the source said. (see here)

Not sure if this is a case of an “et tu, Brute” but I am convinced that it’s far past time for libel suits.

National Post’s Andrew Coyne – Media Party’s biggest hypocrite?

coyne

You have to give the National Post’s Andrew Coyne credit for having the chutzpah to demand political parties stop doing the exact same thing that his industry is allowed:

The exemptions include telemarketing calls made by, or on behalf of:

  • Canadian registered charities;
  • Political parties, riding associations and candidates; and
  • Newspapers of general circulation for the purpose of soliciting subscriptions. (see here)

As well, Coyne could also lead by example, climb down from his high-horse and post his CBC-expensed charges online (including receipts) for all to see.

Update: Ezra Levant calls out Coyne for vehemently opposing Sun News’ application with the CRTC for a carriage license while being silent on the CBC’s (watch here)
