KINSELLACAST 292: Bye, 2023 with Adler, Mulroney, Powers and 2023’s best music


  1. Peter Williams says:

    What was Israel supposed to do about Qatar supplying money to Hamas?

  2. Curious V says:

    Trudeau hates PP, and that’s why he wants to fight him – a schoolyard brawl. Just that the liberals aren’t doing so well communicating their stick, or defining PP based on his extensive experience and resume. The next year will see the lead narrow, and further narrow in an election with NDP jumping to the Liberals to stop PP, but will it diminish enough to change Trudeau’s fortunes …………….dunno.

  3. PJH says:

    With Mr. Kinsella’s kind indulgence, I would like to wish him and all the regular posters here who voice their opinion(s) on his august forum a very Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.
    The War Room is the first thing I look at in the morning, and I gain much insight and knowledge from other people’s opinions and points of view, even from those I don’t necessarily agree with….but especially from Mr. Kinsella’s wisdom(and wit)

    The last few months have been extremely trying for you I know, Mr Kinsella, but I must say you never look happier than when in the company of your new significant other. I wish you all the best for the coming year.


  4. Peter Williams says:

    Did I hear correctly? Israel should engage in assassinations around the globe to get rid of Hamas Leaders?

    I seem to recall another country did this, much to condemnation from Canadian progressives. Is that killing now Okay?

    • Peter,

      Even Hamas knows that’s the Israeli playbook and that it’s coming in spades.

      • But taking out the top leadership is not the be-all and end-all of winning against the terrorists. You eliminate the leadership and they’re replaced by others in short order.

      • Warren,

        Well, this is no surprise to anyone:

        Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri killed in Beirut blast

        This will open up another front in the war. Hezbollah won’t take this lying down. It will lead to a clear escalation but Israel must have known that.

  5. Curious V says:

    Happy New Everybody !!!!! I wish you all the best no matter who you like to vote for !! Here’s to good health and prosperity in 2024!!!

    • Peter Williams says:

      Happy New Year.

      I’m sure Liberal MPs, their families, and friends will continue to prosper financially (and enjoy fat government contracts).

      Although I gather the CBC is not happy with their share.

  6. Warren,

    From what I heard, Pierre’s best and most consistent adviser is called Anaida (Ana).

  7. Warren,

    Tiny, black hearts? You’re way off on this one.

    • Martin Dixon says:

      Ronald, he has said that couple of times now. I laugh. I would assume a joke. I actually miss the days where people from across the aisle could be friends. It seems pretty clear to me that Tim Powers and our host are friends and they looked like friends when Warren pulled the dinosaur out 30 years ago on CTV. I have a ton of NDP, Liberal, communist and even anarchist friends that I spent a ton of time training with in the day. Remain friends with them 40 years later.

  8. Warren,

    Let’s be frank, Harper didn’t so much win in 2006 as Martin lost over Sponsorship. Ditto this time. Pierre mostly isn’t winning — Trudeau is losing spectacularly.

  9. Biden and Trudeau will likely inevitably lose because of inflation and the economy. Both of them allowed their central bank to continue QE from 2008 until the start of QT. That was the primary cause of inflation via the creation of money by digitization. In short, money creation is by far the largest factor related to inflation acceleration. Both Biden and Trudeau took a pistol and quite deliberately shot themselves in the head with their monetary policy stance. That’s why both will almost inevitably lose in their respective elections.

    • Curious V says:

      With inflation retreating, and both economies humming along, I think the issues will change, maybe to healthcare.

      • Martin Dixon says:

        Not with all those mortgages coming due.

      • Curious,

        When the fools at The Federal Reserve and the Bank of Canada make their first rate cut, inflation will spike UP, not go down. Rate cuts will be coupled with more QE (increases in the money supply) and that will fuck Biden and Trudeau even further.

  10. Warren,

    Trudeau will never, ever, leave until he’s massively defeated and humiliated. In two words: pride and EGO.

    • Curious V says:

      You’re right, Trudeau is going to stick around. I think it has more to do with his hatred of PP than his want for a fourth term. Had the conservatives chosen Charest, I doubt he’d be running, but he despises PP.

  11. And then there’s the not insignificant matter for any politician of those who serially violate their marriage vows. In 99% of cases, that inevitably does not end well politically but especially personally. Funny how most cheaters never factor that into the equation before…

  12. Warren,

    In both countries, we’re entering stagflation where unemployment steadily heads higher, which will be followed by disinflation and then deflation. Once we enter disinflation, we’ll be a the front door of a not-insignificant recession in both countries.

  13. Peter Williams says:

    Why does the left have a fascination with authoritarians?

    For example:

    Justin Trudeau “I admire their basic dictatorship”

    Justin Trudeau’s deep admiration for Fidel Castro

    Labour Unions, who continue to display Soviet era flags.

    Pierre Trudeau, after a visit to Cuba in 1964, “When you see mass rallies with Fidel Castro speaking for 90 minutes in 100 degree heat you wonder what is the need for elections.”

    Later as PM on a visit to Cuba Trudeau Sr. was overheard by reporters saying how much easier governing would be if things were run “the Cuban way”.

    Pierre Trudeau openly admired how the Soviet Union built the Siberian city of Norilsk, lamenting that no comperable Canadian city existed. It was a Soviet dissident who reminded Trudeau that the city was built by prisoners.

    Trudeau Sr referred to Jewish human rights activist Anatoly Shcharansky and the Nobel Prize winning physicist as “hooligans”.

  14. Peter Williams says:

    Cabinet should discipline federal managers for incompetence or corruption.


    Imagine if Trudeau did this! Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

    • Martin Dixon says:

      I am sure the usual suspects will say that this step means that there will be people dying in the streets(nonsense) but this sort of thing needs to be done at all levels of government from municipal to federal. I have 48 years of examples of their mind numbing incompetent nonsense at all levels of government. And you don’t even have to fire people(although I would prefer that), just let people retire or buy them out. I know you can’t say it out loud like this until you are in power(see Hudak) but let’s hope this is part of Pierre’s “secret agenda”.


      • Martin,

        I doubt this will shock you: in my many, many, many years on this Earth, I’ve seen incredible mind-boggling incompetence and stupidity. 65% came from the public sector with the private sector providing the rest.

        To wit: American money-centre and commercial large-cap banks. First, monumentally in 2008 and again now with most of them already being technically insolvent. Another taxpayer bailout ahead to keep them afloat and of course, no one goes to jail this time either…

  15. Peter Williams says:

    On Jan 10, 2023, Trudeau promised a $400 million air defence system to Ukraine.

    In April 2023 Trudeau’s Defence Minster, Anita Anand, said this system was “en route” to Ukraine.

    Today David Pugliese reported that the missile system is yet to be delivered as plans are still being developed.


    For a year Team Trudeau has been taking credit for this aid to Ukraine, but they haven’t even finished planning to get it.

    Why the delay?

    To get even more press releases glowingly describing what Trudeau is “doing” to aid Ukraine?

  16. Curious V says:

    I think Trudeau will win the next election, given that issues will change, the NDP will jump to the liberals, and focus will change to juxtapose Trudeau and Poilievre – with people choosing Trudeau for fear of this fool.

    • Curious V,

      Nope, nada, nyet.

      At minimum, this is 2006 again.

      Vacuum cleaner time to scoop up the longtime Liberal embarrassment.

    • Gilbert says:

      I think Mr. Trudeau will lose the next election. Many Canadians believe he’s very arrogant and superficial and has no solutions. He isn’t taken seriously by other leaders, is definitely not an intellectual, doesn’t think about monetary policy and is a radical leftist.

  17. joe long says:

    Good news Canadians
    OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office is clarifying that he and his family are vacationing in Jamaica “at no cost at a location owned by family friends,” after initially saying the family was paying for their stay.

    At no cost!

    Somebody’s is lying.

    Hopefully the CBC can find out who? They might just do that since they’re upset at Justin’s lack of CBC funding.

    • joe long says:

      This is up there with Freeland’s claim that she uses public transit.

      “We know that they are lying, they know that they are lying, they even know that we know they are lying,.. but they are still lying. In our country, the lie has become not just moral category, but the pillar industry of this country.” Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

      Under Trudeau lying has indeed become the pillar industry of our country

    • Joe,

      Trudeau Liberals possibly lying? Well, I never.

  18. Martin Dixon says:

    Can’t the PMO handle something this simple without having to revise and extend their remarks?
