    In "A cunning stunt," we posted Jim Hoft's report regarding the dirty trick played on John McCain at a town hall meeting last week by Obama supporter Marty Parrish. Parrish has been described in reports about the incident as a Baptist minister. We doubt it. At the conclusion of our post, John Hinderaker added: "If that jerk is a Baptist minister, I'm the Pope." Late last night we recevied a two-word message from Parrish with the heading "Hi." The message reads: "Pope John." In other words, Parrish asserts that he is a Baptist minister. In his interview with John Gibson...

    Lockyer, Parrish vie for treasurer WINNER TO BE INVESTOR-IN-CHIEF By George Avalos MediaNews The major-party candidates for state treasurer recognize the challenges that come with being California's investor in chief -- a job often regarded as nothing more than a financial and economic soapbox. State Attorney General Bill Lockyer, a Democrat, and state Board of Equalization board member Claude Parrish, a Republican, are among a handful of candidates vying for a post whose occupant can get the ear of Wall Street, which for years has scrutinized California's financial health and mammoth government operations. (SNIP) The two candidates disagree about the...

    Printer-Friendly Version Email This Story Chapman fraud charge dropped By ROB SEAL Wednesday, September 21, 2005 A former House of Delegates candidate who was indicted in the middle of a heated election is no longer charged with felony voter fraud. Steve Chapman, 27, was scheduled to go to trial today for allegedly lying about his address on a voting registration form. On Monday, a special prosecutor dropped that charge, which carried the threat of a 10-year prison sentence. Chapman said the outcome was a relief, but not a surprise. "We're excited, but I always said these charges were trumped...

    Canadian Government Pondering Reinstating MP Canned for Anti-Anerican Rampage OTTAWA, July 27, 2005 ( - The Liberal Party of Canada may be reconsidering their decision to throw out Carolyn Parrish, the MP for Mississauga who made her career pandering to leftist anti-Americanism. The question remains open as to whether the party is reconsidering having also thrown out the extremism she represents. On the eve of the US Invasion of Iraq in 2003, Parrish was overheard saying she hated Americans and calling them "bastards." Then-Prime Minister Jean Chretien had little interest in improving relations with the US and dismissed demands that...

    See for full report. I'll post the hot story of the week and a summary here... Hot stories of the Week: After Sen. Abel Maldanado (sic) opened his Controller's Monday, stories started circulating that Republican Assemblyman Keith Richman would move from the Treaturer's race where his trails Simon by 40+ points to the Controller's race. Tony Strickland would benefit from that move because that would mean two moderates - Richman (voted against Arnold's budget because it did not include tax increases) and Maldonado would be fighting it out against a lone conservative. Republican candidates (or potential candidates) for Senate...

Darrel Stinson and another Conservative MP who is also in treatment for cancer, David Chatters, brought up their illnesses during question period Wednesday. Earlier in the day, Martin set May 19 as the date to vote on the budget, a confidence motion that would topple the government if it...

    The U.S. is engaged in a bloody war in Iraq for the purpose of eliminating the remnants of a terrorist regime, foreign terrorists, and bringing democracy to Iraq and the region. It is a big gamble that has put radical Islam on the defensive around the world. But shocking evidence demonstrates that controversial former U.S. Marine and former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who now writes for the anti-American Arab "news" organization Al Jazeera, was involved in a controversial effort to stop the war by enlisting prominent personalities in a "peace" campaign.

    TORONTO -- A kinder, gentler Carolyn Parrish appeared on CNN as the US president visited Ottawa. The outspoken MP, who was turfed from the Liberal caucus two weeks ago, has attracted attention for her anti-American comments. But she softened her stance yesterday during an interview with news anchor Wolf Blitzer. When asked if she thought George W. Bush was an idiot, Parrish told Blitzer "the coalition of idiots I was referring to, I think, were mostly the politicians in my own government." She said "how could he rise to the top job in the country by being an idiot?" But...

    ...So it's refreshing to learn that Canada's hoi polloi (i.e., the silent majority) take a far different view of the U.S. According to poll results released yesterday, some 71% of Canadians identify the U.S. as their country's closest friend. In addition, 60% say they have "positive" feelings about America, while a further 25% say their feelings are "somewhat positive".... The main reason given for the close ties is trade and economic relations. The poll was commissioned by the non-profit Friends of America.... Despite occasional disagreements, the two countries have a better relationship than any other border states in the world...

It was the morning after the airing of the program when I saw the picture of that leather boot applied to the torso of the Bush effigy. I assumed it was a picture from Fallujah or some other city where fundamentalists fantasize about murdering the American president. But after a few swigs of coffee, I began seeing the fine print in the newspaper beside the picture and realized that this...

    OUTSPOKEN LIBERAL MP Carolyn Parrish got the boot from caucus yesterday after publicly criticizing Prime Minister Paul Martin, saying he and his closest advisers "can all go to hell." Martin said yesterday the final straw came when Parrish did an interview with Canadian Press Wednesday in which the Mississauga MP went on a rant about her lack of respect for him, saying she wouldn't "shed a tear" if he lost the next election.

    As a Canadian Freeper I have literally had it with some Canadians not understanding that America lost some 3,000 people on September 11, 2001. People forget that some Canadians also died at the WTC that fateful day. I have watched my federal government offer support to Bush43 but not “official” support to the 2003 War in Iraq all the while quietly letting Canadian troops on exchange programs fight in Iraq. Even after the issue became public, my former PM would not support his own troops. And through it all I have watched Carolyn Parrish, Federal Liberal Member of Parliament treat...

    No sooner had U.S. President George W. Bush finished his victory speech last week than Mississauga-Erindale Liberal MP Carolyn Parrish was at it again. What's to be done about Parrish? How about a "three strikes and you're out" rule? After all, she has gotten off fairly easily for her previous drive-by smearings of Americans. First, over a year ago, she was caught muttering, "Damn Americans ... I hate those bastards." A few weeks ago -- and directly to the cameras -- she used the phrase "coalition of the idiots" to describe those who back U.S. missile defence. Last week, again,...

    Canada Prime Minister Paul Martin is afraid of anti-American, backbencher, Liberal MP Carolyn Parrish. Martin’s fraidy cat mode is propelled by the minority position his scandal-plagued government was left in by last June’s federal election. Prime Minister Martin cannot, as requested in emails of protest, fire the Mississauga-Erindale four-time re-elected MP, no matter how vociferous her continuing anti-American outbursts. That’s because the ouster of even one Liberal from his caucus would mean the literal downfall fall of the Liberal government, which would be forced to return to the voting booth just months after re-election. . . . .
