Back in May, Bezan and Romanado were being photographed together at Ottawa City Hall, along with another person. Bezan, standing for the photo, made a comment he now admits was “inappropriate and flippant” — “This isn’t my idea of a threesome.”
Bezan said he meant the comment as a partisan joke … Romanado said it was an “unwanted and humiliating” sexual remark that is still causing her problems today … “ These comments have caused me great stress and negatively affected my work environment,” she told the Commons on Monday.
*MORBNOTE; Note the ‘ humiliating ‘ … the ‘ great stress ‘ bullshit !!! … He’s just making a wise crack you stupid bitch !!! … Roll with it … or get over it !!! … Don’t try to sore money or political points over a million times daily flippant remark just can’t come up with a suitable comeback !!! … FUCK !!! this is snowballing !!!…
The incident landed with the chief human resources officer of the House of Commons soon after it happened, and Bezan offered to go into mediation (as the code provides) so that he could apologize. The request was denied.
Well that’s because it lessons the political value of the entire nonsensical subject in the first place !!!…

Al Franken has announced he will resign from the U.S. Senate amid a rising number of sexual misconduct allegations against him.The former comedian, writer and Saturday Night Live star made his statement on the Senate floor Thursday morning.”Today, I am announcing that in the coming weeks, I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate,” Franken said. “I know in my heart that nothing I have done as a senator — nothing — has brought dishonour on this institution,” he declared.Referring to President Donald Trump and Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, he noted the “irony that I am leaving while a man who has bragged about sexual assaults sits in the Oval Office and a man accused of sexual wrongdoing with underaged women is campaigning with the full backing of his party.”
No prob Al .. You squirmed out of it quite … Politically correct … And you’ll have a good taxpayer funded pension to add to your other income to sustain you in comfort beyond the masses reach til you die … And until then .. You can always keep bitching and complaining from the stands with your leftist views … No harm done .. Eh Al ? …
I hope that’s the last I hear of you … But sadly … Probably not …

Roused by the first major ISIS-inspired attack on U.S. soil since he took office, President Donald Trump urged swift repeal of an immigration program that brought the suspect to America and laid into a political foe he said was responsible for it — though Republican George H. W. Bush signed the law. Trump insisted Wednesday that Congress must end the visa lottery program under which Uzbek immigrant Sayfullo Saipov entered the country, and he ordered still tighter scrutiny of immigrants already subject to what he calls “extreme vetting.” But the White House offered no indication of what new steps the president might be planning. “We have to get much tougher, much smarter, and less politically correct,” Trump said. He also said the U.S. justice system for dealing with such cases must be strengthened, declaring, “What we have right now is a joke and it’s a laughingstock.” Again, there was no elaboration from the White House. Trump denounced the 29-year-old suspect in the truck attack, which killed eight and injured many more, as an “animal,” and said he was open to sending the man to the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, instead of to trial in New York. “I would certainly consider that. Send him to Gitmo,” Trump said.
Exactly what my buddy Lar said when we saw this on the news last night !!! … Why spend money on the asshole with court costs !!! …

U.N. Resolution 2371 On Aug. 5, the 15 nations that make up the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2371 (2017) to place new sanctions on North Korea. The resolution comes after North Korea’s most recent ballistic missile launches, in violation of a ban on nuclear and missile tests.
The new U.N. resolution says:
• North Korea shall not supply, sell or transfer coal, iron, iron ore, seafood, lead and lead ore to other countries;
• UN Member States shall not increase the number of work permits for North Korean nationals (unless approved by the Security Council Committee), based on concerns that their earnings support North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs;
• States shall prohibit the opening of new joint ventures or cooperative entities with North Korean entities and individuals, or the expansion of existing joint ventures through additional investments.
The resolution also identified nine individuals and four entities that would become subject to a travel ban and asset freeze. The asset freeze extends to the Foreign Trade Bank, a state-owned bank that serves as North Korea’s primary foreign exchange bank. Provisions in the resolution could reduce North Korea’s revenue by about $1 billion, according to statements from delegates in the Security Council. The ban on exports from North Korea will prevent it from earning “over a $1 billion per year of hard currency that would be redirected to its illicit programs,” said a resolution fact sheet from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. The east Asian nation earns about $3 billion per year from export revenues, the fact sheet said.
MORBNOTE ; Notice how the United Nations arrived at this decision , 15 – 0 , yet this media outlet is desperately attempting to put sole responsibility on the Trumpster’s shoulders !!!… But backs off after it’s own investigation concludes that Donald DID NOT orchestrate the whole thing … He simply voiced his approval !!! …

Global warming guru Al Gore blew through Toronto recently on a promotional tour for An Inconvenient Sequel, the follow up to his 2006 Academy Award winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. The sequel is scheduled for general release in August, and Gore had high praise for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — who briefly appears with Gore in the new film — as a key player in negotiating the 2015 Paris climate treaty. The Nobel Peace Prize winner also took a mild shot at Trudeau, expressing disappointment he supports oil and gas pipelines.
Never mind that the purpose of those pipelines is to transport Canada’s oil and natural gas resources to market, fossil fuels which supply the energy Gore relies on to keep his never-ending global, jet-setting environmental crusade airborne. This as he travels the world in the lap of luxury urging the rest of us to tighten our belts to save the planet. Fact is, the world really would be in imminent, existential danger from global warming if everyone consumed as much fossil fuel energy as Gore does.
The failed U.S. presidential candidate completely jumped the shark in 2013 when he sold his struggling liberal cable network , Current TV, to Al Jazeera for $500 million, with a reported payday of up to $100 million for himself. Al Jazeera is owned by the oil and gas emirate of Qatar, an Arab dictatorship currently denying allegations from surrounding Arab dictatorships that it funds Islamic terrorism.
Gore’s hypocrisy in selling Current TV to Mideast oil and gas interests, given his crusade against fossil fuels, can only be described as breathtaking.
Typical ( ex ) politician !!! …

The Rolling Stone subset of America – along with the other populations represented by the international press currently going gaga for Mr. Trudeau – are crying for help because the United States is now being led by a fickle, disloyal, hot-headed President with little affection for the political norms or constraints of Western democracies. This crowd knows the system of values and laws that have governed the international order since the Second World War only work when they’re underpinned by American might and diplomacy.
No matter how much Mr. Trudeau talks the talk, he’ll never be able to walk the American walk. Canada doesn’t carry a big enough stick or have an ample enough carrot patch to carry the day in naughty places like Russia or China. So grab your barf bucket and gobble up Rolling Stone’s saccharine profile of Mr. Trudeau. We could all use a bit of candy in this bitter world.
As much as his old man catered to Kbec ( to remain in power as long as he did !!! ) and other policies he put forth that I didn’t agree with … I still maintain that Pierre was one of our more able ‘ politicians ‘ and more than capable when it came to being in a room with other world leaders and be respected and listened to … Pete Jr. is just the spoiled child that has never had to do without in his life and lives for the photo-ops he is gorging himself with to feed his ego …
Trump would shut him up in two minutes in a debate !!! … His father , however , would let the Donald rant on for 20 minutes … Then with a slight smile ( verging on smirk ! ) … Make a statement that would have the whole world laughing at him !!! … Which would send the pompous Trumpster into such a tantrum he would be exposed to the world !!! …
As for you Jr. , you just worry about Canada and stick to your campaign promises …
