Rich Coleman, Premier and Wielder of the Shank

Blades of Glory, cold steel, a deep penetrating thrust or pepper Gordon Campbell`s back with a hundred little jabs, my my, what to do with this incision decision......

And can you imagine, the Gordon Campbell BC Rail corruption trial starts on Monday, our good friends Robin Mathews and citizen reporter 54 will keep us all captivated with the Straight Goods, BC Mary will diligently lay out the new discoveries and of course the mad scientist Ross K will fill our heads with images of of cryogenically frozen memories and missing links, I can`t wait, I haven`t been this excited since the pre-campbell crustacean period.....

And so the trial will resume, only now Gordon Campbell is bloodied and bruised, hated, the HST army and bloggers kept this alive, from Enbridge to energy to taxes to corruption the alternate media has roasted Gordon Campbell and all the BC Liberals....

Let me be perfectly clear, BC Rail, the HST, and a hundred other items were kept alive and lethal by bloggers and small private on line media, not Canwest, not Global news, not CTV, not CKNW.....Everyone of those corporate media mediums have given Campbell a pass, more than a pass, big stooge media has gone out of their way to forgive, distort, and promote a corrupt government, the Michael Campbell, Michael Levy, Keith Baldrey, Bill Good, Cristy cluck cluck Clark, Gord MacDonald, Chris Galais, Vaughn Palmer not to mention John Winters, Helmut Pastrick, Chamber of Commerce.....And big business dollars......

Despite all the money, the cable and radio airwaves, name recognition, despite all of that, new media has won, we won, B.C. has the highest percentage online, 86% of all BCers are on line, they are reading BC Mary, Ross K...House of Infamy, Laila Yuile, the articulate Norman Farrell, Willcocks and Shrek, not to mention the entire BC Liberal caucus regularly visits us at the Straight Goods, (Hello Whigs).......

Can`t you feel it folks, more muscle, more readers, more respect than all Canwest properties combined, put that in your pipe and smoke it editors in chiefs!!!!!!

We owe our friend Gary E a big high5 for giving us the heads up on the Liberal revolt in the Caribou Chilcotin, (Thanks Mr. Gary E).

But that revolt, and then there was Sheila Orr, Jordon Bateman, Scott Nelson, and more.....In facts friends from my sources in the Campbell Caucus tell me there are 25 riding associations that have filed grievences and resignation demands of Gordon Campbell, both Peace region riding`s, why do you think Leckstrom bolted(That and the clean energy scam)...Abbot`s riding, every border riding is grieving financially and have filed resignation demands on Gordon Campbell.....

And that brings us to the BC Liberal death spiral, why is Gordon Campbell still there, well, besides Campbell being criminally insane no one wants the leadership, Dianne Watts is out, Carole Taylor is out, Gordon Campbell knows that unless they can find a Superstar leader with clean hands the B.C. Liberal brand is dead, never to be seen again, and Campbell`s other problem is.....

Whoever runs as leader for the BC Liberals, Gordon Campbell wants the :Leader or wanna be leader of the BC Liberal party to defend and promote the HST and clean energy act, to defend Gordon Campbell, there in lies the rub, Carole Taylor and Dianne Watts are opposed to the HST and can see through the economic IPP/power purchase scam, there is nothing to defend, it won`t hold up to scrutiny, scrutiny..............

Scrutiny, something Canwest Global and CTV and CKNW have ignored, garbage reporting, mis-information, lies, a complete failure by Kirk Lapointe, Luchinda, Graham,Tom Plasteras, these clowns are amateur hour hacks who have ignored the facts for advertising dollars, they are as guilty as Gordon Campbell and his spineless lying loser MLAs.

So that is why Gordon Campbell is still hanging on, there is no wanting to carry his distorted corrupt legacy forward, all comers want to bury Campbell and his policies (corruption).....So that leaves a "Shank wielding cabinet minister".....A leader from within the ranks of cabinet, something Campbell knows is doomed to failure, cabinet has dirty hands.........

Cue Rich Coleman, not only is Rich Coleman making the backroom deals but also the front room players are backing Coleman....

My sources tell me that not only does Coleman want leadership now, Coleman is prepared to scrap the HST and burn any Campbell self-perceived legacy to achieve his goals....

The HST fraud is dragging BCs economy into the tank, riding associations have figured out the HST scam....Drag the economy down for years and hope in 10 years people stop fighting the tax....

Rich Coleman is prepared to campaign on removing the HST.......Rich Coleman is prepared to back Ottawa in a corner over federal votes ........Coleman is prepared to make a federal majority Government or take that majority away over the HST.......This is getting lively......

One question left, are the NDP prepared to play hard ball with the Feds over the HST or are they going to draft behind Rich Coleman`s wake and play wishy washy? We will know that answer by November 15th....

Who was with Gordon on his European Vacation?

Anonymous said...

Rich Coleman was seen having dinner with Patrick Kinsella at the Keg in South Surrey (per Alex T....I know, I know). Jordan Bateman is no longer president of Coleman's constituency as of...September 11. Makes sense. Unfortunately, he's not much better than Campbell, IMHO.

Well, we know Nancy was there according to Gordo. But, who knows for sure? :-)

jaydee said...

The only one Campbell will let take over would be someone who will enable him to become Mr. Gordo Putin.

Now him and/or his bud Robertson want to buy up farmland so we have a constant 'local' source of food and the people jump for joy. When will the people learn he is a liar, he will sell it to his cronies.

jaydee said...

....make that give it away and probably with some valuable ocean front property thrown in.

jaydee said...

If Campbell says Nancy was on vacation!!! again/still with him, she wasn't.

According to Campbell shouldn't he be holidaying, spending his money here, the best place on earth?

As I see it, the next leader of the BC Liberal Party will be determined by the Howe Streeters and their henchmen. They were the group that installed Gordon Campbell and they will decide who will be his replacement. I suspect that they would prefer someone not currently a part of the current regime. For that reason, I believe that they are courting Dianne Watts big time. She is basically in the same space as Campbell was when he was installed as the leader of the Libs. She has very little negative baggage, politically speaking, and for the most part a positive aura. There may be some of the incumbent BC Liberal MLAs that covet this position, but they are all damaged goods, so to speak. Their support will come from family and friends, not the power brokers they require to attain the pinnacle of their aspirations.

The Howe Streeters have control of the MSM, and as such can control who becomes annointed as their next puppet. Just reflect back as to how Campbell was able to oust Gordon Wilson, the guy who single handidly revived the party. Wilson was easy pickings after his affair was exposed, and the MSM delivered every gory detail they dig up. Marital breakdowns occur every day, but Wilson's indescretions got the media coverage usually reserved for the elite. The irony of the Wilson situation is that he and Judy are still together.

Although I do not believe in political parties as a means of being represented in government, I really wonder where the BC NDP has disappeared to. They have said nothing about what has transpired this week at Elections BC. They have waffled on whether they would extinguish the HST. Sitting back and waiting for the BC Liberals to implode may be advantageous to a point, but there comes a time when they must step forwardlay their visions on the electorate. They have enjoyed a free ride on the back of the HST backlash, but that is short term at best.

No one should assume power by attrition.

Anyone who goes after leadership of the Lib party is doomed to failure. It smells like shit, looks like shit....it must be shit. Go for it Coleman!

Uhmm.. it's "wielder".. of the shank,
not weilder.

But let's skip past the trivial and get to the problem at hand, one Mr. (dis)honorable G. Campbell, albatross to the Fiberal party, a magnet for lying, self-interested, biased and unintelligent staff (C.Hansen comes to mind), a big business supporter and small business killer.

The sooner we have G. Campbell and his rotten ilk out of the government picture, the sooner we can get around to fixing this smashed (play on a DUI? lol) and distorted government we have and are left with.

My only concern, and from the masses of posts I've seen, it's echoed about "WHO" is going to take over.
The NDP are really no-where to be seen. Why is that?
I thought that they'd be all over this like white on rice, instead, barely a peep.

I'm pretty sure that our "democratic society" is falling by the way-side as our "betters" acknowledge that they are only there for the gravy of the position (per-diems, etc) than to make ANY difference.
When you have party leaders who start sentences with statements like "what can we do??" leaves a bad feeling in my stomach.
If an average BC'er can tell the "leaders" what to do better, then maybe it's the average BC'er who should be leading and not some wanna-be bigwig strutting around and soaking up our tax dollars like they were rays of sunshine.

Grant said: "Dianne Watts is out"
________________________

But in a previous post Grant said "Dianne Watts was on with Michael Smyth today, right after Scott Nelson, Watts said she was running for Mayor of Surrey, although when Smyth asked her if running for mayor was etched in stone Dianne Watts paused with her response.....

That pause was so staged, staged to give disgruntled Liberals a glimmer of hope".

So, which one is it? Give us the straight goods!

Gary E said...

Thanks for the mention Grant.

I'm pretty sure you will see a lot more coming from this riding.It's unbelievable how mad the people here are. And when Campbell waffled on quitting it just go worse.And I'm not talking about NDP supporters. These are Liberals.
I think Scot was trying to stem the blood flow from the riding executive, but in my opinion it's too late. There may be some party jumping here soon.
Interestingly enough our MLA has seemed to have disappeared. Oh, she's writing her columns and entertaining various ministers. But with the ministers we only hear that they were here a week or more after the fact. And they are not talking about the HST to the public. They hide behind closed doors with the Chamber of Commerce. How is that explaining their position on the HST to the people thaat count? The voters. Go figure.

Grant G said...

Dianne Watts is out...Here "Pause" was staged, staged to buy time and hope for disillusioned Liberals....
Watts will only run if she campaigns on ending the HST.....

Which means a bloody knife fight with Cabinet, I don`t think Watts has the stomach for so much bloodshed.....

As for Coleman, not only is he prepared to shank half his team, he is prepared to bury Campbell with dirt, scandal, bad policy...

The winning formula for power in BC rests with running
/promising the elimination of the HST....

And I can`t be the first one to figure that out, think about it.......

What better way to retain power than eat their own and cast Campbell into the garbage heap....

A party, wether it be Liberal/NDP/REfed/Con...

Someone will be pushing hard the no HST prize....

Who is prepared to grab the brass ring...

Carole James and Moe Sihota have been trying to woo big business......

The irony of ironies........

If the NDP waffle on the HST the other brass ring grabbers will be succinct with their HST message...

Elect me and the HST is gone...

Carole James and the NDP will watch it all slip away...

The road to power in Victoria travells through the NO -HST real world....

Decide which road you will be taking Carloe James.

Grant, I just listened to Dianne Watts from the CKNW audio vault of last Monday and when asked if she has any interest in running for the premier's chair, she said:

quote - "Well you know, I'm the mayor right now and at this point the job is not available so I think it is significantly pre-mature for anyone to be looking in that direction" [and then the 4 second pause about her running again for mayor] - "Nothing is cut in stone." unquote

What that tells me is that she doesn't want to step on anyone's toes until the job becomes available and she is playing coy until that opportunity arises.

All Watts had to say was "I am not interested and never have been interested in provincial politics or becoming premier" - End of story.

I think the poster Cam is right when he says: "I believe that they are courting Dianne Watts big time."

The idea of the NDP cozying up to business really sucks. It will be as successful for them as cozying up to Wall Street and saving them from themselves has proven to be for Obama. It is laughable listening to people like Boner Man (Boehner) accusing Obama of being a left wing radical - if he was more left wing and looking after average Americans as well as he is the Military-Industrial Complex and Wall Street his popularity would still be soaring and we could throw out the tea bags. The NDP should remember that the PEOPLE have the votes, not business, but I guess business has the money and the NDP are greedy and lazy also, perhaps.

I think Cam is 100% right with:

"As I see it, the next leader of the BC Liberal Party will be determined by the Howe Streeters and their henchmen."

I like your idea Grant about Ricky Coleman as leader of the liaRs. It is difficult to replace Campbell with anyone in his class for being despicable, but Ricky Boy and Falcon are about as close as you can come. I think Coleman would amount to a Rita Johnson in reverse drag, and force the Socrud, CRAP, Reform, Canadian Taliban and ReThuglican co-alition to make up or steal yet another party label. Even Carole James and the "zombies in a coma" NDP couldn't lose to him, unless every candidate was caught molesting children or abusing animals ON VIDEOTAPE.

I can't wait until tomorrow, and not just because I get better looking everyday!

This has been the summer of discontent, for the citizens of BC. The BC Liberal party, is in name only. Campbell is a Conservative, and works for Harper. Chomp, chomp, Ida Chong, chomped her way, through $6.000 of fine dining. It is obvious, Campbell could care less about the BC peoples taxes, going for outrageous expenses. Campbell's security bills, are the highest in Canada. The BC Liberal Party, is a false party, and should be dissolved, the party, stands for nothing other than, a way to steal as much of, the tax payers dollars, as they can. Why would Campbell care about, damaging the BC Liberal name? He isn't Liberal. That is why, he will not step down to save the party. BC people have seen, the BC ministers and MLA's, support an absolute monster. We sure as hell don't want, any of them, governing this province. Campbell and Hansen, has made BC a, bottomless pit of corruption. BC will be 50-60 years, cleaning up Campbell's mess.

The NDP is right in not getting too involved in the HST and the rest of the rot and stink rising through the Liebrel party.
The weasel is in the hen house now, let him do his work.
Besides if the NDP were to wade in to this mess they would be crapped all over by the MSN.
Carol James is the biggest problem the NDP have.She has to go soon.

Rich Coleman reminds one of Jabba the Hutt. A big greasy bag of shit. He epitomizes what the Liebrel Party is all about. A coup organized by this slime bucket would just grease the rails for a faster slide of these bums into the sewer.
Mother Teresa couldn't save these animals now.

They may have Coleman act as the "impaler" and take over until they can restructure with a new leader and henchmen. The Liberal party will look for someone "outside" the "party". Look for them to suggest former mayors or councillors from Vancouver. How does Peter Ladner sound, Larry Campbell, any one or one of the higher profile lawyers in town. Of course they could ask the former NDP short term premier, "D" to come back on the other side of the spectrum. If the "liberal" party is to survive they will need a long term strategy to survive and there doesn't appear to be any "Grace McCarthy" to rebuild a party. Of course Brian Peckford is sitting in qualiquam and who knows what he may want to do.
With a weak t.v. line up for the fall, BC politics just might be the best show in town.

Has anyone read today's Province article about Gordon Campbell? in it he says...What he thinks about at night...is how to better the economy in order to increase peoples' paycheques so they can look after their families' (I don't have quote exactly correct, but that the gist.) Since when has he looked out for the common man....

Anonymous said...

Grant, you forgot the bigmouth legislative reporter Tom Fletcher on your list of morons. Have you had a look at what this ass writes on a weekly basis in Black Press publications. This guy would be commited if essindale /riverview was accepting new patients. If Gordon (KORSICOFFS) Campbell ever takes a sharp turn this Fletcher fella will suffer a broken neck as he has his head so far up Gordos bum.

I believe Tom Fletcher was working for the Canwest papers in Vancouver when Campbell stole the BC LIberal Party from Gordon Wilson. He obviously had to join in the brainwashing sessions demanded by the Howe Streeters and couldn't handle de-programming. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if he isn't a member of the party as well.

I have posted on the shenanigans going on at Elections BC on pretty every site I frequent in hope that as many people as possible become exposed to this travesty. I even posted a comment on Vaughn Palmer's latest blog on the Vancouver Sun website, but for some reason, it has not yet been publicized. I did it Friday evening, so maybe the person that vets the comments doesn't work weekends. If it is still not on the site tomorrow, then I'm sure Postmedia publications are under orders to avoid the whole thing.

I was incorrect on Fletcher. He was the editor of the Maple Ridge News before becoming a supposed legislative reporter for Black Press. Black Press owns the Maple Ridge News now, but I don't know when they acquired it.

Regardless, I do think he has been brainwashed. I have yet to see an article that he has written that is anything but complimentary of Gordo and his gang.

Listening to radio talk shows, I have heard a few Gordo Lib supporters (Sheila Orr, for one) go on about all the 'good' he as done for this province. They harp on and on and then when they try and come up with an example, they can only think of one thing! The provincial tax cut by 25% that was way back in 2001. After that, they cannot come up with another example. AS far as I'm concerned, the tax cut has no merit whatsoever. It was simply replaced with massive price increases to BCmed premiums, reduced services, skyrocketing ferry fares, skyrocketing hydro rates etc.


What good has he done? Anybody?

The BC HST, has sent prices, right out of control. And, with the tax hikes in the provincial budget. Those two taxes, put together, will cause, evictions and utility cut offs. Campbell and Hansen have put BC, into the billions of dollars in debt. Campbell and Hansen, did the most stupid of all. The BC and Federal government, takes all our money for taxes, we can't support any businesses. Many communities have gone underground. Through the underground, meat, vegetables, chicken and eggs, are less than half the cost, of what big businesses charge. All of the underground food, is organic, and not poisoned, such as supermarkets foods often are. So many small business owners, have had to close their doors, because, of the HST. Restaurants, are really hit hard.

With numbers like these being donated to the Liberal party, it really ought to tell us not to look for truth anytime soon. Or unbiased, non-partisan reporting either. From 2005/2009:

Glacier Media Inc. Total Contribution For This Search: $100,000.00
Madison Venture Corp. (Glacier's largest shareholder): Total Contribution For This Search: $50,000.00
Glacier Chairman, contributing under Madison Pacific Properties Inc. : Total Contribution For This Search: $100,000.00
CanWest Media Inc. Total Contribution For This Search: $50,000.00

Wow...with all the good coverage Campbell's been getting from day one - you'd think the donations should have gone the other way. Or maybe they have...in the form of advertising dollars. Cute, private companies pay him, public money pays them. No wonder they love their Gordo!
