A Masterpiece of artistic accuracy and sanctimonious malice!
Editors note: This sentence makes no sense in the context of what follows however Court Painter’s Press Attache AHM is enamoured with it and insists on its inclusion.
Although all of this was in plain view, many art critics, even people of rank, spread different stories.Different people had different views as to what possessed Court Painter. Some said it was a kind of frenzy. Others claimed he was possessed by a demon or maybe even worse, the Muse.
Let us take it that this infamy happened from a natural cause. This teaches us he has failed to repress the passions of the soul, and has become dominated by them, flirting with irreparable harm to his natural constitution.It was said that Court Painter had been damaged in a certain vein in the region of the brain by excessive imaginings, fantasies and anxieties.They say that there is the region in the brain, a very small, slender vein that nourishes the power of imagination and fantasy. Therefore when imaginations and fantasies abound in us,this little vein becomes agitated,and if it is sufficiently agitated and harmed, it ruptures, and the person falls into a frenzy of artistic insanity.Court Painter fails to set a limit, then, in his fantasies and imaginations, his conjectures and other pointless and useless cogitations thus falling into so great and irremediable a peril as to claim to be in the spasms of perdition.
Meanwhile Court Painter on most good days continues to hob nob and gallivant around with unrestrained glee and occasional gravity, exercising his social climbing proclivities wherever the company ,whatever the setting .
The following photographs released from the Court Painter archives document his seance attendance and other elbow rubbing with the chattering class!
As long as we valorize a settler mythology instead of actually knowing our history, we will remain incapable of dealing with the type of violent discourse that validates the death of a young indigenous man.

In response to national and international outrage,brain cramps and injury to delicate funny bones suffered by numerous snowflake journalists and politicians , Justin Trudeau surrendered yesterday on the steps of the House of Commons and agreed to attend Clown School immediately in an attempt to up his game as a jokester.
The Prime Minister explained an off-the-cuff remark he made during a town hall meeting about making the word mankind more inclusive was an attempt at humour that backfired — a joke that he now appears to regret.
“I made a dumb joke a few days ago that seems to have gone a little viral in the room on the ‘peoplekind‘ comment.It played well in the room and in context. Out of context, it doesn’t play so well,” Justin added as seriously as he could for the benefit of those teetering on the verge of outrage.
“It’s a little reminder to me that I shouldn’t be making jokes even when I think they’re funny.”
He said he’s pleased to attend Clown School to work on ‘out of context’ zingers and added it came highly recommended by Canadian ambassador to Germany and special envoy to the European Union,Stéphane Maurice Dion.
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger recently has said that the temptation to launch a pre-emptive strike on North Korea ‘is strong and the argument rational’ ; remaining consistent in his steadfast support for “bombing as an instrument of diplomacy.”
He recently told a meeting of the United States Senate Armed Services Committee that North Korea poses the most immediate threat to global security, arguing that denuclearization of the regime must be a ‘fundamental’ American foreign policy goal.
During his time in office, under Presidents Ford & Nixon, Kissinger had been involved in three genocides : Pol Pot’s “killing fields” in Cambodia, which would never have occurred had he not infamously ordered an illegal four-and-a-half-year bombing campaign in that country; Indonesia’s massacre in East Timor; Pakistan’s in Bangladesh both of which he expedited and later as a vociferous public supporter of invading Iraq.
Kissinger has been credited with being the modern architect of America’s propensity for “endless war”.
Don Cherry says people who believe in climate change are ‘cuckaloos’
Veteran hockey broadcaster Don Cherry is facing backlash after appearing to deny the existence of climate change and calling people who believe in the widely accepted phenomenon “cuckaloos.”
Cherry, 83, made the remarks to co-commentator Ron MacLean on Saturday night during the first intermission of the game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins, a day after Ontario’s newest forecasting groundhog Wiarton Willie signalled six more weeks of winter.
During his “Coach’s Corner” segment, Cherry, asked MacLean if he and his “left-wing pinko friends” could explain their fears over rising temperatures in light of the prevailing cold weather.
“I’m just asking you, the cuckaloos are always saying there are warming trends — we’re freezing to death.”
Skimmin’ $Bread off the Bread
The Fix is In on the Staff of Life
Competition Bureau documents reveal allegations seven companies participated in a scheme that inflated the price of bread by at least $1.50 over a decade and a half.
Court documents made public this week allege Canada Bread Co. Ltd. and Weston Bakeries Ltd. – the country’s top two bread producers – co-operated with major grocery retailers including Loblaw Companies Ltd., Walmart Canada, Empire Company Ltd. unit Sobeys, Metro Inc. and Giant Tiger Stores Ltd. to fix prices on an array of bread products. Loblaw and its parent George Weston were granted immunity from prosecution after tipping the bureau off to what they say was an “industry-wide” scheme.
The dollar cost to consumers through 15 years of price collusion would be in the billions. Indeed, the rise in price of bread exceeds that of all other general indices in the Statistics Canada consumer-price database.
