It's that time again. Back by semi-popular demand, The View Up Here Triple Rant. After all...when in Rome...
Tony - Despite best efforts of the CPC and corporate media, there is no denying the abrupt and complete derailment of a career politician with the highest civilian security clearance in the land. At his own...um...hand. From releasing it on US Midterm Day after sitting on it for a week, to minimizing it, to retracting that, to being sent to the backbenches to off the bench in 48 hours. And the corporate coverage was sombre and regretful with no meme-like graphics or theme music. Followup looks to be not forthcoming unless absolutely necessary. Compare this to a recent circus over a single event from more than a decade ago that involved contact above the shoulders but was grounds for resignation from the planet.
The Bunk Debate - Considering the history of The Munk School, established by the billionaire family of the founder of Barrick Gold, free market extremism has always been standard fare. Never an institution to miss out on a trend, it's Steve Bannon vs David Frum to ponder "populism". You can almost see the pendulum moving right, can you not? When the author of "Axis of Evil" plays the reasonable entrant it's a one way street. But please, corporate media, never mention the Aurea Foundation. Those millions to neoliberal slogan tanks aren't important.
The Anything But Resistance - Where does one start? A high school dropout drug dealer, a divinity school dropout, a corporate puppet, a groomed insider convicted of impaired driving and a seperate vehicular homicide and a failed waiter that was the worst Speaker of the House in history. What is this motley crew resisting? Reality? Intelligence? Progress? Facts? Full marks to Rogers Communications owned Macleans and the novelist Pompous Wells. It's not a failed pitch, just the next step in what will not relent until Election 2019.
