“ Pearson so bad that backups a National Fire Code violation “

How bad are the backups in the customs halls at Pearson? So bad that the fire chief for Canada’s busiest airport has warned airlines that if they let passengers off before they’re told to, they will be in violation of the National Fire Code.

As a result, all international flights arriving in Toronto must now hold passengers on the plane until they are given specific instructions that they can be released.

 

The feds want you to believe that they have no role in this, it’s just the airlines and their scheduling problems, or they claim it’s a staffing issue.

Let’s be clear, as I have been from the beginning, the airlines have things they are responsible for, including the disaster that has become baggage handling, but screening and customs are huge problems that are solely the responsibility of the federal government.

 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his ministers need to stop blaming slow passengers or bad airlines for things only they can fix.

 

As Aitkens noted, there are staffing issues at Pearson for the Canada Border Services Agency, which is in charge of the customs agents. The union representing those workers has been sounding the alarm on staffing issues for months; they’ve also been calling out the problems

Trudeau’s true legacy — stoking the woke

Compared to other countries this century, such as the U.K. and the United States, the modern wave of right-wing populism is late in coming to Canada. It is now, however, firmly entrenched in the People’s Party of Canada, the Alberta-based Maverick Party, the Conservative Party of Quebec, and increasingly in the CPC. As in other nations, it is the product both of circumstance, including economic, industrial, and social dislocation, and leadership, both that of left-leaning politicians like Justin Trudeau, who stoked the woke, and of right-of-centre politicians, who seized the opportunity.

 

As mentioned, Trudeau’s time in office was marked by an astronomical growth of government. This growth predates the pandemic, where spending soared off the charts; from 2015–2019, it stemmed from both a philosophical perspective and a political calculation. Philosophically, it owed a debt to the ideas embodied in future minister-of-everything Chrystia Freeland’s 2012 opus, Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else. Freeland argued that the middle class was being “hollowed out” at the expense of the wealthy; she prescribed economic redistribution to remedy inequality. Trudeau followed Freeland’s advice and gave tax breaks to the middle class while raising taxes on the rich; he also pledged “more support to those working hard to join the middle class,” playing to New Canadians’ and working-class voters’ desire for upward mobility. This, the Liberals figured, would win the support they needed to take key ridings in suburban Toronto, mainland B.C., and suburban Quebec.

Author John Ivison describes Trudeau as having “an absolute conviction that Canadians share (his) devotion, bordering on dogmatism, for an activist agenda to transform Canada into a more egalitarian society by government fiat.” Ivison cites American conservative writer Thomas Sowell, who in 1995 penned a scathing critique of political correctness in which he distinguished between two groups: the “Anointed” and the “Benighted.” According to Sowell, the Anointed have a “vision” wherein they predict future social, economic, or environmental problems unless the state steps in; they are deemed not merely correct (think Trudeau’s reliance on “evidence-based policy”) but morally superior. The Benighted are dismissed as “uninformed, irresponsible, or motivated by unworthy purposes” (think anti-mandate protesters during the convoy).

 

Trudeau was seen as a hypocrite who preached one thing but practised another

Trudeau was also sanctimonious. If you disagreed with him, you were not only wrong, but a bad person. He, the Anointed, would not seek to enlighten the Benighted but shame them. And in doing so, he would sow a legacy of division and backlash.

 

Trudeau’s contempt was on full display at a 2018 town hall in Sabrevois, Que., where he was heckled about his refugee policy and lack of border controls. Trudeau responded to the Sabrevois heckler by declaring that her “racism” had no place in Canada. As it turned out, the heckler in question was in fact linked to the Storm Alliance, a far-right group. But her concern about Canada’s porous borders was shared by many Canadians who were not racist but angry that their country was allowing people to queue-jump while other refugees played by the rules. The PM’s off-the-cuff, holier-than-thou response also sparked the resurrection of every blackface meme of Trudeau ever created. A similar outrage erupted when the PM took a knee at a Black Lives Matter protest on Parliament Hill in 2020; he was slammed from the left and the right for his “hollow gesture” that disrespected the RCMP that had protected him “since infancy.” Again in 2022 when he described unvaccinated people as “racists and misogynists” on a Quebec television program, the public responded indignantly.

In my opinion, this was and always will be the biggest miscarriage of Justice ever perpetrated on Canadians.

Quote of the day rom Rex.

So here we are. The stumbling statutory inquiring into the invocation of the Emergencies Act has revealed the police didn’t ask for it; that, according to the deputy minister of public safety, the minister said some things he didn’t mean to, or didn’t say some things he meant to; and that the widest possible powers were given to law enforcement on the basis of truly gruesome miscommunication.

What to say? Well, it’s a good time to visit Chile, I suppose. That is, if you don’t have to leave (or come back) via Pearson.

If being appalled by all of this makes me "a R/W extremist" then sign me up.

It used to be the domain of liberals... back when I voted for them, that was before they became completely unhinged and authoritarian. 

the berlin wall fell due to a mis spoken word.  Stuff happens

More than half of Canada's AstraZeneca vaccine doses expired, will be thrown out

OTTAWA -- Canada is about to toss more than half of its doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine because it couldn't find any takers for it either at home or abroad.

It also has yet to explain how it plans to manage millions of doses of both Novavax and Medicago vaccines that it bought but is unlikely to use itself.

“Canada is Back” ….asswards that is !!

 

Court martial planned for soldier who criticized vaccine mandates, led march to Ottawa

 

 

The Canadian soldier who recently led a protest march to Ottawa is now facing a court martial for having spoken out against the federal government's COVID-19 vaccine requirements while wearing his uniform. 

Warrant Officer James Topp was recently notified that he will be allowed to have his case heard in a military court instead of by his chain of command, according to the army reservist's civilian lawyer. 

Phillip Millar said the decision represents a second about-face after the military initially offered his client a court martial when he was charged in February, only to rescind the offer and send his case to Topp's unit commanders. 

"It's hard to know what they're doing, because I don't think they really know what they're doing," said Millar. "But now they're saying it's a court martial." 

The decision raises the stakes for Topp, according to military law experts. Courts martial are allowed to impose heavier sentences against Armed Forces members than if they are tried by their chain of command in what is known as a summary trial.

It also means he will be allowed to have legal representation at trial — which wouldn't necessarily have been the case had he been tried by his commanding officer — while his trial will receive much more public attention. 

"The stakes are obviously going to be increased in a public-relations context," said retired lieutenant-colonel Rory Fowler, who is now a lawyer specializing in military law in Kingston, Ont. 

The Department of National Defence did not respond to questions about whether Topp's case was changed from a court martial to summary trial and back again. 

Potentially stiffer penalties

Topp was charged in February with two counts of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline after the army reservist appeared in uniform in two online videos criticizing vaccine requirements for military personnel and other federal employees. 

Canadian Armed Forces members are severely restricted in the comments they can make while in uniform, particularly when it comes to criticizing government policies, in large part to protect the military from any perception of politicization. 

Topp, who is now in the process of being released from the military, later led a months-long march from Vancouver that ended in Ottawa last week and was supported by many of the same people behind this year's "Freedom Convoy." 

He has since become a symbol of sorts for Canadians opposed to vaccines, vaccine mandates and perceived government overreach. Some Conservative MPs have also hitched their wagon to him, including leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre. 

While Millar questioned the military's back and forth with his client, and said he planned to question the way Topp's charges were handled, he still welcomed the latest decision to allow a court martial.

Lich crown prosecutor donated $17K to Liberals, attended Trudeau fundraiser
 

Official Elections Canada political financing records reveal that Moiz Karimjee from Ottawa donated over $17,000 to the Liberal Party of Canada since 2013. 

Karimjee is currently the lead Crown prosecutor in charge of the case against Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich.

Contribution data from Elections Canada reveals that Karimjee from Orleans – a suburb of the nation’s capital – donated a total of $17,176.24 to various Liberal Party of Canada efforts. The latest contribution listed by Karimjee was on Sept. 30, 2019 amounting to $250. 

On May 21, 2017, Karimjee also made a large contribution worth $1,500 to the Liberal Party of Canada. His extensive support continued regularly for nearly six years spanning 29 different contributions. 

Karimjee did in fact also donate to the Conservative Party of Canada on two occasions in 2010 amounting to $800.  
 

A Dec. 12, 2017 open fundraising event report by the Liberal Party of Canada also lists Karimjee as an attendee. The event took place at the National Gallery of Canada and had Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as a featured guest. 

The event was branded as a “donor appreciation” celebration for those who gave at least $1,500 annually to the Liberals. Among those in attendance also were SNC Lavalin lobbyist Bruce Hartley, Trudeau’s former principal secretary Gerald Butts and the prime minister’s chief of staff Katie Telford. 

“Justin Trudeau, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, will deliver remarks at a Laurier Club donor appreciation reception in Ottawa on December 12, 2017,” a press release from the time stated. 

“The Liberal Party of Canada has committed to the strongest standards in federal politics for openness and transparency, and is challenging other parties to do the same.”

While Canada does all it can to get people “hooked” on drugs by giving them away for free in parts of the country…there’s this. If you’ve ever travelled to Singapore there’s  a huge sign in customs warning people that the penalty for importing drugs is death. In contrast to what this article claims…that sure would be a deterrent for me.

 

Singapore hangs two drug traffickers despite opposition 

Amnesty International said Singapore is one of just four countries known to have executed people for drug-related offences in recent years.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Two drug traffickers were hanged in Singapore on Thursday, bringing the number of executions this year in the city-state to four despite growing calls to abolish its death penalty.

Activists said the prison department handed the belongings and death certificates for Malaysian national Kalwant Singh and Singaporean Norasharee Gous to their families after their execution Thursday morning.

 

Amnesty International said Singapore is one of just four countries known to have executed people for drug-related offences in recent years, going against a global trend toward abolishing the death penalty.

 

“Singapore has once again executed people convicted of drug-related offenses in violation of international law, callously disregarding public outcry,” said Emerlynne Gill, Amnesty International’s deputy regional director for research.

 

“The death penalty is never the solution and we oppose it unconditionally. There is no evidence that it acts as a unique deterrent to crime,” Gill said in a statement.

Kalwant, who was convicted in 2016 of bringing heroin into Singapore, was the second Malaysian to be executed in less than three months. In late April, the hanging of another Malaysian sparked an international outcry because he was believed to be mentally disabled.

 

Kalwant filed a last-minute appeal on the eve of his execution on grounds that he was a mere courier and that he had cooperated with police, but it was rejected by Singapore’s top court, activists said.

 

Critics say that Singapore’s death penalty has mostly snared low-level mules and done little to stop drug traffickers and organized syndicates. But Singapore’s government defends it as necessary to protect its citizens.

 

“We urge the Singaporean authorities to immediately stop this latest wave of hangings and impose a moratorium on executions as a step towards ending this shameful and inhuman punishment,” Amnesty said.

 

Four others drug traffickers, including two more Malaysians, were scheduled to be hanged earlier but their executions were delayed pending legal challenges.

Dutch farmer protest sparked by policy Trudeau wants for Canada

Dutch farmers have been blocking highways, supermarkets and food distribution centres for the past week over a policy that is similar to what we could soon see in Canada.

 

In fact, if Justin Trudeau isn’t careful, the next protest he sees might be tractors and farmers rather than truckers.

 

Farmers across the Netherlands are protesting rules that will require them to reduce nitrous oxide emissions by 50% by 2030. It’s a move to reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also one that could see them lose money, have lower crop yields or force some farms to close for good.

 

In Canada, the Trudeau government is moving forward with a plan to reduce emissions from fertilizer by 30% to help meet Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions targets. For most farmers, that means reducing fertilizer usage by 30%, which means lower crop yields, lower income for farm families and higher prices for families at the grocery store.

There are fertilizers that have a smaller GHG footprint, but they cost more, don’t increase crop yields in the same way and, in some cases, see plastics injected into the soil as part of the slow release formulation. Industry groups say they were not consulted before the Trudeau government pulled the 30% reduction target out of thin air and that there has been no analysis and no modeling provided to farmers or industry groups.

 

While still described as a voluntary reduction, those in the agriculture sector say they don’t feel the government understands the way things work. Bureaucrats talks as if farmers across the board are using far more fertilizer than they need.

 

While best practices can always be improved, most farmers aren’t spreading fertilizer across the their fields like your Uncle Bob does after a sale on lawn fertilizer at Canadian Tire.

I only use as much as I need to grow the crop,” one farmer in Southwestern Ontario told me Thursday.

 

“You can only afford so much of this,” said another farmer from Saskatchewan.

 

Fertilizer is either the most expensive input for farmers or one of the most expensive inputs depending on the crops and scale of the operation. No one who wants to be successful is using more than they need and some have told me they should probably use more based on soil analysis but that it becomes cost prohibitive.

 

Now comes the federal government, who on the one hand wants Canadian agricultural products to become a major export but on the other hand wants to impose rules that will drop yields for famers and raise costs for consumers.

A study by Fertilizer Canada, found that the impact would be significant on farm family income.

 

It is estimated that a 30% absolute emission reduction for a farmer with 1,000 acres of canola and 1,000 acres of wheat stands to have their profit reduced by approximately $38,000 – $40,500/ annually,” the report said.

 

The industry has been trying to tell the Trudeau government that they are willing to do their part to reduce emissions but that they should be looking at a reduction in emissions intensity instead of a hard cap on emissions. That means the GHG emissions per bushel of crop or acre of land farmed would go down even if total emissions from farms did not.

 

That would mean no reduction in farm outputs and perhaps even an increase in yields at a time when the global food supply is up in the air due to the war in Ukraine and other factors.

 

So far, the Trudeau government hasn’t shown any interest in those arguments. They want a total reduction, and the fear is that the “voluntary” reductions on the table now will become mandatory in the near future.

At that point, expect to see tractors become a protest symbol in Canada as they have become in the Netherlands.

Bill Morneau memoir will be tough on Trudeau, says ghostwriter

 

The award-winning novelist who helped former finance minister Bill Morneau craft his memoir says the results are going to be tough on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Where To from Here: A Path to Canadian Prosperity is set to be published in January by ECW Press, based in Toronto.

“I am a little hesitant to give too much away, but it’s going to cause people to reassess, in ways they may not be doing now, Justin Trudeau’s role as prime minister,” John Lawrence Reynolds said in an interview.

“The biggest surprise, obviously will be the background of the reasons [Mr. Morneau] left. A substantial surprise will be his highly qualified and substantive opinion of Justin Trudeau’s weaknesses as Prime Minister.”

The core of the book, he said, is that Mr. Morneau could not agree with the principles he was dealing with in Mr. Trudeau’s government. “That was at the core of his reasons for leaving. That’s expressed pretty directly in the book. So I’ll just leave it there.”

Mr. Reynolds, an 82-year-old from Burlington, Ont., declined to elaborate. The winner of three Arthur Ellis awards for mystery fiction has worked on the memoirs of political leaders including former Newfoundland and Labrador premier Brian Tobin, Manitoba NDP Leader Wab Kinew and even Justin Trudeau. He worked on Mr. Trudeau’s 2014 book, Common Ground. In total, he has written or provided editorial services for 25 books, including the Morneau project.

The Morneau book is still a few months away, but Mr. Reynolds has a new work out now about another finance minister: a memoir of Michael Wilson, who served in Brian Mulroney’s cabinet, and was Canada’s ambassador to the United States. Mr. Reynolds finished Something within Me: A Personal and Political Memoir after Mr. Wilson died in 2019 at age 81. In the book’s introduction, Mr. Mulroney writes that, ”If a Prime Minister of Canada is lucky – and I mean really lucky – he will wind up with a Michael Wilson in his cabinet, ideally as minister of finance.” He credits Mr. Wilson for helping facilitate such policies as the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, the North American Free Trade Agreement and the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax as a visible consumption tax.

The book also deals with Mr. Wilson’s advocacy for mental-health awareness spurred by the 1995 suicide of his son Cameron, who had mental-health issues.

Mr. Morneau was a stalwart political ally to Mr. Trudeau for five years until he resigned from cabinet in 2020 amid the WE Charity scandal. In 2021, the federal ethics commissioner concluded Mr. Morneau had breached the Conflict of Interest Act when he failed to recuse himself from cabinet deliberations on a summer student grants contract despite ties to his family.

In announcing his exit, Mr. Morneau said he had never planned to run for re-election and a new finance minister was needed to oversee the long-term economic recovery from the pandemic. The announcement followed reports of tension and policy disagreements with Mr. Trudeau.

Now it appears Mr. Morneau will have more to say. An ECW description of the book says that, “In his own persuasive voice, Bill Morneau paints a positive picture, tracing his widely lauded entry into the political arena, the arc of his career in politics, major accomplishments and missed opportunities, his surprising exit, and a host of revealing episodes between the events.”

Mr. Reynolds says he is pleased with the book, which was based on hours of recorded interviews with Mr. Morneau.

Sharan Kaur, a spokesperson for Mr. Morneau, said the book is not yet finalized and is still in the editing stage. “At a high level, it will be an overview of Bill’s time as Finance Minister and some of the inner workings of Ottawa. The book will focus on how to foster Canadian economic growth and prosperity,” Ms. Kaur said in a statement on Wednesday.

Mr. Reynolds said his work with politicians is to extract their life stories to be told in book form.

He said he employs what he has learned from writing a dozen mystery novels. “Find the arc of the story, identify the key personalities, bring them alive on the page. That’s my job, whether working with politicians or working with virtually everybody else.” Mr. Reynolds has also worked on books about business leaders such as Robert Milton, the former chairman, president and chief executive officer of the parent company of Air Canada.

Mr. Reynolds said he had long sessions with Mr. Wilson, discussing his life. “In the midst of our third or fourth long session in his office in Toronto, he revealed that he was facing treatment for liver cancer,” said Mr. Reynolds.

“The rest of our discussions were held by telephone, and they were painful in many ways because, by this time, I had grown to like the guy enormously – me, a lifetime Liberal, and him a dedicated conservative.”

He said the book might have been different had Mr. Wilson’s health been good throughout the process. “But I still think, between us, we captured enough of who the man was and what he had achieved.”

Middle class life keeps getting harder under Trudeau Liberals 

Government tone deaf to rising fuel prices

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came to office in 2015 with a simple message : “It’s about the middle class.” But as more and more people struggle to pay their bills thanks to levels of inflation not seen since the early 1980s, it’s become vividly clear that Liberal claims about fighting for the middle class don’t translate into a genuine concern for working Canadians.

 

The government’s hypocrisy was on full display on Tuesday, when Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland, promoting the government’s response to runaway inflation at a trucking company in Brampton, Ont., dismissed concerns about high fuel prices hurting truckers and raising the cost of goods and services.

 

“From my perspective, this price increase in fuel costs is a reminder of why climate action is so important, and why as a country we have to work even harder and move even faster towards a green economy,” she said. “It’s an insurance policy against higher energy prices.”

 

Her tone-deaf response showed a complete lack of regard for the very real struggles many Canadians are facing due to the high cost of living. But it should not come as a surprise: since coming to office, the Liberals have made no secret of their desire to raise fuel prices, in order to reduce carbon emissions and incentivize more energy-efficient technologies.

Policies such as the carbon tax and punishing restrictions placed on the oil and gas sector have always been a problem. But when the economy was strong and inflation was low, their economic impact was not as readily apparent.

 

With inflation hitting 7.7 per cent in May, nearly 50 per cent higher than a year earlier, and gas prices averaging around $2/litre, an increase of 60 per cent compared to last summer, however, those policies are proving to be economically devastating for the middle class.

 

The Trudeau Liberals had a choice to make: offer short-term relief for the working people they claim to be the defenders of, or prioritize their ideologically driven climate agenda at the expense of low-income and middle-class Canadians. They clearly chose the latter.

For months, the Liberals have been trying to deflect blame for rising prices by constantly reminding Canadians that inflation is a global problem resulting from factors that are largely out of their control. While strictly true, they have also steadfastly refused to do anything about government policies that contribute to high prices, such as the federal gasoline and carbon taxes, which collectively add about 21 cents per litre at the pump.

 

Speaking in the House of Commons last month, Liberal MP Rachel Bendayan said the government would not reduce gas taxes because “there is absolutely no guarantee these large oil and gas companies will pass on any savings to Canadian consumers.” That notion was disproved on July 1, when Ontario removed its 5.7-cent fuel tax and pump prices immediately dropped.

Other provinces, including Alberta and Newfoundland, have also lowered taxes. As has every other G7 country. But not the Government of Canada. In fact, not only are the Liberals digging in their heels and refusing to do anything about policies that make life less affordable, they’re doubling down by imposing new fuel and vehicle standards that will only make things worse.

 

Last week, the Liberals quietly announced new “clean fuel regulations,” which will force energy companies to reduce the “carbon intensity” of their fuels. The announcement was made without the usual pomp and fanfare we’ve come to expect from this government.

There was no gloating about how Trudeau is saving us from a warmer future; no virtue-signalling about how Canada is leading the way for other countries to follow. Because the Liberals know full well that the new regulations will only add to the financial strain felt by many Canadians.

 

The government’s own analysis estimates the new rules will increase the cost of diesel between seven and 16 cents, and add upwards of 13 cents per litre of gasoline, thus increasing “production costs for primary suppliers, which will increase prices for households and industrial users” and decrease GDP by $9 billion over the next eight years.

 

Meanwhile, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, a federal agency, is pushing ahead with its Rolling Truck Age Program, which is set to take effect Sept. 15 and will forbid all trucks over 12 years old from entering the Port of Vancouver. The new regulation is expected to affect 360 drivers, or about 20 per cent of the trucks that currently move containers to and from the port.

This will prove to be a significant expense for many independent drivers and smaller shipping companies and will surely end up being passed on to consumers. Existing problems with snarled supply chains and increasing costs of food and consumers goods will be further exacerbated if the United Truckers Association goes ahead with a planned strike in August to protest the new measures.

 

While the new fuel standards and the Rolling Truck Age Program were in the works well before the current inflationary mess, the Liberals have steadfastly refused to address programs that artificially inflate prices and have instead moved ahead with policies that show just how little regard they have for middle-class Canadians.

 

In 2015, Trudeau noted that, “This is a tougher economy than it needs to be for the middle class and those who want to join it.” Since then, he has only made the situation worse.

Under the Liberals, Canada’s freedoms have been under growing threat for the last six years. They have been increasingly transparent in their efforts to shut down all speech they don’t agree with.

They passed the C-10 bill in an attempt to suppress our freedom of speech, particularly on social media. Among other things, they are trying to control what Instagram posts you see, the YouTube content that will get exposure, and which videos would be allowed to go viral.

Government tone deaf to rising fuel prices

Trudeau Liberals Continue To Deliberately Increase Inflation

Clean fuel’ regulations will drive up the cost of gas and take more money out of your pocket, just as the carbon tax is already doing.

A point that must be repeatedly made is that the Liberal government stands against Canadians when it comes to making life more affordable.

Many people in this country still have the belief that the Liberals want to lower inflation, as they assume that the government wouldn’t be purposely making their lives worse.

But that’s exactly what the Liberals are doing.

With new clean fuel regulations being announced – they will go into effect next year – the Liberals are purposely pushing a new inflationary carbon tax-style policy.

The regulations are expected to lead to an extra six to 13 cent increase in the per litre price of gas by 2030. But keep in mind, that’s what Steven Guilbeault is claiming, and given the Liberal record of dishonesty it would be no surprise if prices went way higher.

And that is all on top of the carbon tax that keeps going up every year.

The Liberals are deliberately pushing up inflation

If our country is to finally return to some common-sense policies, Canadians must fully realize that the Liberals are deliberately pushing the cost-of-living higher.

They want Canadians to be poorer.

 

They want to take our money from us.

They want us to be unable to afford to travel & use vehicles affordably.

They want to make it impossible for us to be financially independent.

The Liberals believe that your money is their money, and that they can spend it better than you.

And, they believe that you should be financially ruined to so they can fly to international galas and virtue-signal about “saving the world.”

The Trudeau Liberals have contempt for you, and for all Canadians who are just trying to make ends meet and improve our lives.

For the Liberals, making life unaffordable isn’t a negative byproduct of their policies, it’s largely the point of their policies, keeping Canadians down and elevating the power of the government at our expense.

It is profoundly important that we all do everything we can to reveal this truth to our fellow Canadians, and push back against the false narratives being pushed by the Trudeau Liberals and their servants in the establishment press.
