Is This Justin Trudeau's Finest Moment?

David Suzuki says Trudeau called his views on climate change 'sanctimonious crap' in heated call.

I'm gobsmacked.

Is this Justin's finest moment? His most astute observation? Will he build on this moment of lucidity -- or is it all downhill from here?

The Fishy Mohammed Clock Caper…

"Naming your kid “Ahmed Mohamad” and sending him into school with a ticking briefcase is just asking for problems."

No kidding.

Was it really an invention? Or was it just a re-hashed clock from Radio Shack? If so, what was the purpose of this caper? Was it a set up?

Did he not realize that taking a ticking box filled with loose wires and electronics could be misconstrued? What about his parents/dad -- in this day and age would you innocently send your kid -- muslim no less -- off to school with what looks like a bomb without at least notifying the teacher ahead of time? Is this civil, civic-minded behaviour, or is this wilful provocation?

Did the police over-react? (Answer: yes -- but that's what liberal-left zero-tolerance policies gets you.)

He got the knee-jerk invite to the White House. Would he have got this invite if he were a white kid?Why does he get to go to the White House, but a kindergarten kid who gets expelled for eating a pop tart into the shape of a gun does not? Obama rarely misses a chance to "make America look bad" and fan the flames of racial/ethnic/religious animosity. 

Provocation, meet the provocateur-in-chief.

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

Great Moments in Global Warming: "Gas Prices triple by 2015”

Daily Caller:
ABC News ran a news special in 2009 called Earth 2100, a program warning its viewers about the dangers of climate change. ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff says the show “puts participants in the future and asks them to report back about what it is like to live in this future world. The first stop is the year 2015.” A Harvard University professor says, “We’re going to see more floods, more droughts, more wildfires.
Gas prices triple by 2015. Suburbs abandoned. Don't miss EthaHAUL --  it appears at the end of the video.

Don't expect a retrospective boy-were-we-duped retraction from ABC.

Warning: PG. Scary, apocalyptic scenarios. Could frighten children.

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
