Jason Kenney: Pants on Fire

Featured

According to Jason Kenney and Andrew Scheer, neither low Oil and Gas prices, nor the American shale gale, nor the increase in U.S. crude oil production & resultant glut, nor the massive structural shift in the oil industry had anything to do with Alberta's downturn and continued recession: it was entirely caused by Superwoman Rachel Notley and/or her Superman sidekick, Justin Trudeau.

Gaslighting continues: Gut and Cut is the ideology of Deficit-Haters but stealth is a factor

Is Canadian Media exacerbating national division because it's lucrative? Postmedia almost fulfilled their goals to elect Andrew Scheer - like the U.S. media did when they helped to elect Trump - and often portrayed Alberta as a rising hotbed of separatist angst when the #Wexit noise really comes from a minority of discontented Conservatives having a temper tantrum. Prime example of Gaslighting: "This idea of Alberta as this poor, woe begotten, economic basket-case is a myth, one that opposition politicians here like to trade on. But it's a fairy tale."

Part 4: Conservative Economic rhetoric is Gaslighting

Andrew Scheer goes on and on about forcing the Federal Government to "live within its means" and that invokes old discredited fears about Canada's accumulating debt and our deficits. Scheer claims PM Justin Trudeau made a “mess” of our economy & his "massive" deficits will mean increased taxes that our children will inherit. Conservative fear-mongering about Canada's best debt-to-GDP-ratio in the G7 is gaslighting. Our children also inherit massive assets and like any mortgage they may pay on for 20-30 yrs, increased equity in ownership is a huge bonus.

Part 1 Conservative Economics Gutting Fiscal Capacity

Conservative economics drives and exacerbates income inequality. Their neoliberal ideology (Socialism for the Wealthy) started in the UK with Thatcher, the U.S. with Reagan, went into hyper-drive with Stephen Harper, and is in full swing in Ontario with Doug Ford. Alberta has followed with Jason Kenney's tax cuts for wealthy corporations that are already paying the lowest taxes in Canada.

Andrew Scheer Pants on Fire

Andrew Scheer is the leader of the Opposition in Canada, yet he finds the time to mislead his base almost every day. He has an unhealthy and seemingly pathological obsession with blaming PM Justin Trudeau (PMJT) for everything under the sun. As such, we started several blog posts dedicated entirely to Scheer’s #AlternativeFacts, obfuscations, misrepresentations, deflections and/or straight-up lies.

Andrew Sheer: TransCanada

For Andrew Scheer to claim PM Justin Trudeau is responsible for TransCanada's name change because they are running away from Canada when they are heavily invested in the U.S. and when the name change to TC Energy was planned over a year ago, is tin-foil hat thinking. TThere is rarely a day that goes by without a tweet from Andrew Scheer blaming PM Trudeau for some alleged wrong. He cornered the market on #AlternativeFacts, misrepresentations, and/or obfuscations long ago, but his obsession with blaming PMJT is bizarre.

Lie Tracker Introduction

In politics, we now live in a “post-truth” world of wicked polarization “alternative facts” and “fake news”! “A defining trait of post-truth politics is that campaigners continue to repeat their talking points, even when media outlets, experts in the field in question, and others provide proof that contradicts these talking points.”
