Rich Coleman and Colin Hansen Gnaw Jordan Bateman`s Balls

Can it be any wonder why NO ONE reads anything Jordan Bateman writes, a quick look at Alexa web company reveals that Langley Politics(Bateman`s blog)...Is so obscure, so not read it`s a wonder why Coleman and Hansen would chew Bateman`s balls off........

It is also a stark reminder of the cowardice and gutless actions of all B.C. Liberals......

With a mere 10 visitors a day to Bateman`s blog why would the media freak out and plaster Bateman all over the news, headlines of dissent, cracks in the Liberal ranks.....

Mr. Jordon Bateman............A personal note to you from Grant G.....

You are a coward, you have the ability to spot the lie, you had the courage to say what millions of BCers are saying, you had a moment of clarity, you spotted the obvious Hansen and Campbell lies, you were willing to throw Hansen and Campbell over a cliff in an effort to save a dead and beyond revival B.C. Liberal party.......

But then you waffled, your yellow streak was exposed, your cowardice, your fear of reprisal from your political masters, you prepared your butt hole for a fresh reaming, you put on your best knee pads got on all fours and received the glory, the Coleman lips and Hansen stick, you lost your backbone and relegated yourself to eternal guppy and stooge status....

And your apology, your gracious retraction, you have proven your loyalty and decision making is in other hands, you put facts and the truth aside in order not to upset your political masters, you have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are in fact, a coward, a gutless dirtbag, may I recommend some hemmoroid creme and an extra seat cushoin, because on this Friday morning Jordon Bateman, not only is your nose red but your behind is BEET red too.....

You have now with your actions Jordon Bateman destroyed your political future, welcome to private life, you told the world that you can be bought and prodded to say and do anything, you have confirmed that your spine is made of Jelly......

You can read Bateman`s apology to Colin Hansen ...You can read Jordon Bateman`s asking Hansen to resign here and you can read his retraction and yellow journalism

here

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Indeed friends, that is what is wrong with politics today, elected officials turning their backs on voters and taking marching orders from criminals and liars, Remember that name friends, Jordon Bateman, the man with no spine, a yellow bellied coward who never gathered any readers, an obscure blogger, a voice not worth listening to......And his opportunity to shine and speak was ruined and he sold his political future, his pride, his manhood, he gave it all away from a "on all fours" stance, barking and obaying(typo error intended)......

This Powell River persuader will never sell out his pride, his morality, we here at the Straight Goods put reader integrity above all other items.....Now you know why no one ever read or ever will read what the Coward Jordon Bateman had to say.....Jordon Who?????

I actually know Jordon,and despite the fact that we have different political leanings,I know him to be a stand up young guy who has done a heck of a lot for Langley, and the people who live there. He has three young kids, and he and his wife have done a lot of good for people in the area, and have fought hard on a number of issues.

I was very proud to see him call for the resignation, and I have to say that I know Jordon never speaks or acts rashly, and without consideration.

In my opinion, Jordon has a lot of things to consider in his life, like supporting his kids and family as well as his other political and personal affiliations. I suspect, but don't know that he was ordered to retract - OR ELSE.

This is a bit more about Jordon. http://www.jordanbateman.com/about-jordan.php

Everyone knows I am not a Liberal, or a Liberal supporter, but just consider the greater picture. Jordon is a good man, a father and husband who perhaps was a little naive as to the power the Liberal political machine holds.Can he throw everything he has worked for away on this? I doubt it. Hard to do when you have3 little kids, mortgage and commitments.

I'm sure I'll take some heat for this,but oh well. I know what kind of guy Jordon really is. Not every liberal is a bad liberal, just like every NDP'er isn't a wishy washy non decider either.

Grant G said...

Wrong Laila....The fact that he has kids or is a good father has ne bearing on ethics or honour...

Spin it anyway you want, he is a yellow bellied fool....The fact that he has kids he should be thinking about their future...

His actions should depend on a steady pay cheque...Someone ran the gas chambers for the same reason, job security...Your argument Laila is pathetic...

Write a blog on Bateman defending him, don`t defend him here...

Good day.

Grant G said...

Your argument Laila ....A man should put his job security first...

Really, forget facts, forget who elected you..

Men and woman all over ths province make decisions, for a pay cheque should one kill salmon, kill the environment, without morality and honestly what do we have....

Jordon Bateman can become a garbage collector, a labourer, take up a trade, are his kids and family more special than yours?

You disappoint me badly today Laila.

You play favorite and will temper your response based on personal feelings, wrong game you`re playing Laila....

lailayuile said...

I didn't play favorites Grant, and I am not defending his retraction. I don't think he should have,and to be honest, I was quite surprised when he did.

I simply stated that I know Jordon and I can't imagine him retracting anything unless something was threatened to him. It's not like we don't all know what the Libs are like, threats are nothing to them.

His kids and family are no more special than mine,but I can guarantee you they are as important to him as mine are to me. Something pretty big had to happen for him to back off that issue the way he did. Jordon just isn't like that.

We do all make choices Grant, and sometimes they aren't easy and sometimes they are wrong. He was wrong to retract, I don't dispute that at all. But I would certainly like to know what happened to make him do it before I start trashing him. This doesn't jive with what I know of the guy.

Back peddling,is whats on the menu today,they will do anything they can to finish the job of raping us,and jordan is truly a spineless coward,and looks like he is scared to get a real job too,besides taking it in the rear must be a lot easier than going to work for a living,just proves hes just another whore,and I just thought he was a lieberal that was just confused and baffled from all the bullshit and finally saw the light.

dan said...

Jordan being a good father is irrelevant.

Jordan having kids is irrelevant.

Jordan having a mortgage is irrelevant.

Jordan wearing a lampshade on his head is irrelevant.

Quoted from Jordan’s apology statement:

“We(Jordan and Hansen)( spoke about the documents and I feel you should all know that Minister Hansen gave me his direct assurance that the HST was not being planned prior to the election.”

Really?? Sure about that? This Liberal Government applied for intervener status on the side of New Brunswick in the defense of the HST there more than two years ago.

And our Finance minister did not know? What quality of Finance Minister can this be if he readily admits to not being aware?

What is relevant?

A Liberal Party insider confirms and admits in public that he, as a liberal insider, does not represent the desires of his constituents; he simply does what he is told and nothing more.

A perfect example of why we MUST HAVE a debate about the way we elect our government politicians.

Copy of the e-mail I sent to Jordan...

Sir, as many have said above... you are a coward! You have shown your real side, a dark side to the public. Along with Campbell (Where the hell is he?), Huggies Hansen (The "Flag" waving liar), and Coleman (Who rolls along, burping, lying, and been swayed by the criminals re: the $9990.00 magic line of safety for the money-laundering folks. I could go on sir, but today is your day. Resign, do the noble thing. Then the rest of the carpetbaggers should also resign, because I believe, as many do, that the election was won on deceit. RECALL IN THE FALL!

Grant, I think you have wrong here..... the play is like this, put up a Notice Hansen has to resign, media picks it up, Hansen makes him take it down (more media), he puts up an apology (more media).

Could it have been any better? He knew what he was doing and don't think there are not other liberal members elected and liberal connected to this gravy train boat, who don't want to have their money train stopped. Get Hansen to take the fall, we know Gordo won't, so Hansen does it. HST continues and the Liberal gravy train continues for the Corporations......

Think outside the box...... at least sometimes

Elwood, you need to actually take a hard look at the page you claim showss Grants stats.

Those stats are for the host, blogspot.com, not for grants individual blog traffic.

Take a look at what it says when you enter in my site: http://www.websitetrafficspy.com/www.lailayuile.wordpress.com

According to them,I get over 300 million visitors a day. Sure.... and if you read on, it states those are the stats for the host wordpress.com.

Website spy is not set up to handle individual blogs like ours. Alexa is the only reputable blog ranking tool,used by companies and competitors.

If Grant or I had 19 million visitors a day,we would be more read than the New York Times, or any other major site in the world.

That being said,I think we both do pretty damn well.

so Laila why did you remove the straight goods from your favorite blogs list?I could understand removing that fat silly alcohol swilling pigs,but Grants?,is this some sort of competition?

I still see he has yours up so your playing the game by yourself.

Grant G said...

Settle down folks, there is no competition, Laila fights the good fight, as for who`s on whose blog list, who cares......

Every blogger is a little different, Mary, Laila, myself, Norman, try to get this info out there and find time to live, one man research, edit, writing.......

I admire the hard work, it`s not easy for any of us, we take no prisoners here, vision/npa/lib/con/ndp/media/.......

Let the chips fall where they may, Bateman has earned no quarter here.

Coleman is making his leadership move, the Batement retraction is a coup within a coup....

Let` s see who jumps on whose bandwagon.

No competition Anonymous,when we are all working on the same team, for the same cause!

I'm just correcting the information from that site,because it is completely incorrect for all blog sites.

It is no concern to anyone here why I removed Alex and Grants blogs from my blogroll, but suffice it to say it was required at the time I removed them, several months ago. I rarely update my blogroll, which is unfortunate because then I miss passing on good blogs to my readers.

Grant is right, we all have different styles and personalities, and it is very hard at times to maintain it all, because as he says, it is a one man show. I have 4 kids that run from age 2, to 19, and with university and school and life... well it's a lot. But we all work hard to get these stories to you.

Right or wrong, it's the ability to debate and get ideas out there that makes it work. I admire Grants passion and energy, and his ability to rally the troups and inspire. His recent post about his dad was a work of art, a wordsmith is the only thing I can think of to describe his talent to convey a story. I just see things more gray sometimes, rather than black and white.

Paul said...

*** Bob Groeneveld editor of the Langley Advance ***

"I recall when Langley Advance reporter Jordan Bateman used to laugh at politicians who blamed their faux pas on the media."

"Then, proving what he had of time contended was a basic flaw among many politicians during his days in the Advance newsroom, he compromised his honesty – or maybe he just lost his spine.

"In any case, the contentious blog item disappeared into some hole in the fabric of cyberspace, and out of that dark, dirty hole popped an apology."

"Bateman apologized for speaking the truth."

"Now he's a TRUE politician."

Stuart said...

Since we are talking about Jordan Bateman I thought I'd throw this into the mix. A few days ago I sent these thoughts in response to his My theory on Gordon Campbells future.


"Its not often I feel compelled to write but there is one glaring reason why none of you characters are ever going to win again. Not once in your article or your readers responses are the people of this province ever mentioned. Its all about the party and how to survive. I hope you guys are all wiped off the political landscape." (edited by site owner for name calling)


I don't know Jordon but I do resent his tagging on that last bit. My letter was exactly as you see it, no more, no less. Nothing was edited. Now what that says about his character I'll leave up to you.

Leah said...

8:25 - it says to me that he is a sad and broken man who has resorted to manipulation, and fudging of facts while hitching his wagon to the wrong star. He has yet to find out that a man's good name is his most precious asset...when he willingly sells that for a mess of potage, he has lost his soul.

Anonymous said...

I would like to know what the coercive methods are. I don't believe for second that every single BCFiberal backs the HST 100% and most MUST see the writing on the wall... so how are they being blackmailed?

Anonymous said...

Why would Jordan Bateman lose his livelihood? He's a councillor for the Township of Langley and a licensed wedding chaplain. What the.....has that got to do with being a Liberal supporter? What livelihood would he lose by offending the party apparatchik? He makes $36,139 a year being a councillor (source: Langley Advance July 2, 2010 http://www.langleyadvance.com/business/Township+council+Travel+spending+queried/3227558/story.html) and he has a small business (Outlawed Wonderings; clients include the reelection campaigns of Rich Coleman and Mary Polak). Maybe his client list would get smaller because he'd lose those two clients, but he does have others.

I'm no fan of Bateman's (he has been the big pusher of having some historical farm lands (Hudson's Bay Co farm lands actually) taken out of the ALR for an overpass to nowhere) and he is pushing to run for mayor of the Township.

Maybe that's it. The Liberal party won't support him for a municipal position.

The guy's a goof. I've seen him in action at council meetings and he is an embarassment. A Liberal tool. Laila may think he's a nice guy. To the folks in Langley, he's not.

Crankypants said...

I'm a little bit confused about this whole situation. If Grant's asertions about Bateman's readership of his blog are correct, then how did his call for Hansen's resignation attract the whole spectrum of the MSM? Traffic of 10 visitors per day amounts to nothing more than family and close friends. Yet, it hit every conceivable media, be it radio, television or print. It kind of reminds me of when the media almost beat the police to Glen Clark's house years back.

Of Course, the retraction also got quick and equal coverage. The question is, was Mr. Bateman read the riot act by Coleman and Hansen, or was this just a pre-emptive strike designed to deflect people's attention from the contents of the FOI that was reported by the same media.

We have already been exposed to the fact that the Gordon Campbell led BC Liberal Party will go to any lengths possible to gain and retain power, whether it is above board or not. They have employed a take no prisoners policy from day one.

In my humble opinion, Campbell and Hansen and the rest of the BC Liberal MLAs should not resign. They should be all charged with fraud. They ran their last election campaign on the basis of being the most qualified to deal with the economy while bringing in a bogus pre-election budget and insisting that it was gospel. They all sang from the same songbook. From Campbell on down, they insisted that the deficit would be no more than $495 million while many of their supporters, such as Helmut Pastorik(appoligies for most likely mispelling his name), disputed this figure. The BC Liberal based their last election campaign on a lie and everything mushroomed from there.

Do not be swayed by by personalities. Power and money can make the nicest people do the most unthinkable things.

“Power and money can make the nicest people do the most unthinkable things.”

No power and money can make the weakest people do the most unthinkable things.

To demonstrate this weakness is to confirm your ineligibility for political office.

We do not have a government at the moment. We have a group of people disguised as a government who have been installed into political office.

None have demonstrated competency to date for the tasks at hand.
It is hard to believe that EVERY SINGLE LIBERAL continues to play along without dissent. Just taking the money and doing a lot of nothing. They are ALL the same caliber of person.

I won’t join in on the name calling; personal attacks have no place, this is about issues that affect all British Columbians at every level in our society.

Anonymous said...

A lot of these comments and the fact that Bateman retracted his statement convince me that it is more than money that is being used as a club - unless perhaps it is a lot of money.

Bateman already made his statement and he would have known that the repercussions (expulsion) would be an obvious consequence.

When what's his pickle - Blair Leckstrom - left the BC Liberals he left in the middle of the night on a weekend and was long gone - and all over the news as being gone - before Campbell even knew what was up. I think he did this on purpose SO HE COULD GET OUT. If he had gone through the regular channels informing his superiors etc I'd bet he'd still be a BC Liberal - with a broken toe or two.

I really want to know (not first hand) the mobster techniques Gordo's party is deploying.


All that said recall them ALL.

Crankypants said...

Anon. 10:44

Blair Leckstrom left the Liberal caucus and cabinet, but last I heard, he is still a member of the BC Liberal Party. He did not surrender his membership card. This status may have changed by now, but if it has, it wasn't made public.

Funny, Keith Baldrey said on Global that he reads Bateman's blog once in a while.

Imagine if Grant made a conversion on the road to Damascus and called for everyone to support the LIEberals. Grant would then receive the MSM "Bateman" treatment.

Anonymous said...

It is said, Campbell is actually a conservative, hiding under the Liberal name. Campbell and Harper, do have a very cozy relationship. Don't forget Harper's part, regarding the HST. Campbell and Hansen, have been nothing other, than a litany of lies, deceit. Cheating to win, is as about as low as they can go. They are fully aware, there is no support for them, from the BC people. Decent politicians , would step down, to save the party. However, Campbell and Hansen, have soiled the Liberal party name, because, they, are not true Liberals. I say, get rid of the entire, scurvy lot of them.

Kim said...

Well, to say that Campbell is a conservative doesn't quite fit, same with Harper. I think they should be defined as neo-conservative, in the Chicago School of Economics Style. The Calgary School in Canadian terms. This can be characterized by the belief that government has no role in society save their role in laundering money for global corporate interests. And in divesting nations of public assets.

Having said that, let the revolution begin...

Campbell never seems to come out of hiding. The province is falling apart. His bogus government is falling apart, and Campbell and his significant other, have gone to Europe, AGAIN. No fall sitting of the BC Legislature, Campbell is never there anyway. The legislature, runs fine without him. The BC Legislature, is made a mockery of, by the Liberal ministers, they usually put on, quite the exhibition. Arrogance and disrespect of what the Legislature is supposed to represent. Get rid of Campbell and Hansen. Hell no, get rid of the entire lot of them. They are useless anyway. They don't have minds of their own. They shiver in fear of, Campbell's vendetta's and, will sell their souls, in fear of the monster.
