Andrew Scheer telling Indigenous protesters to "check their privilege" is patently absurd, but it's a predictable offshoot of the bizarre contradictions in Critical Race Theory, an anti-racism analysis popular among some race theorists.In a nutshell, Critical Race Theory is an academic belief that because White people hold societal power, only White people can be racist.Any thinking person knows racism is terrible - and illogical - which is why it's important to combat it effectively! And that means through advocacy and action founded in critical thinking, not academic nonsense.Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) & Maus Merryjest's (@bywordofmaus) examine & deconstruct the theory that "prejudice plus power equals racism" (also known as the Bidol equation) showing how basic Critical Thinking exposes the illogical basis of Critical Race Theory by following it through to its ridiculous conclusions. If you want some additional reading, check out Maus' blog post on the subject as well! https://philoscribbles.tumblr.com/post/171907276826/bidols-equation-doesnt-add-up______________________Important, jargon-free, no-nonsense discussions of important topics other media won't touch - except the radicals who destroy public discourse.

We know this episode is going to trigger some peoples' outrage - but that's exactly why we need to talk about it.As evidence recently shown in the Amber Heard - Johnny Depp divorce, sometimes charges of physical or sexual abuse are provably false, but it will still leave the life & psyche of the person falsely accused in ruins - while the false accuser pays no legal price for taking a wrecking ball to someone's life.False accusations also make it harder for those who've truly been victims of abuse to be taken seriously, and the fear by men of being falsely accused has reduced workplace opportunities for women. It's a serious issue, and we treat it as such. Probably the most emotional episode of Mensplaining that we've done. Listen before you judge. And then think._______________________________________________FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) and Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) discuss the chicken-or-egg question: did all these idiotic people doing idiotic things for social media 'fame' always exist, or has the lure of social media status pushed them toward greater & more dangerous (and stupid) acts they wouldn't do if their narcissism wasn't rewarded?

Men are supposed to be fearless, right? It's part of that whole 'macho masculinity' we're spoon-fed by media depictions of male heroes.Bullsh*t.Men have fears. Some small & silly, some much bigger and deeper. And it's facing fears, instead of pretending they don't have any, that makes men into Men.Mensplaining - Men talking to men about being men in 2020.

An FU_POLITICS special presentation of one of Canada's best podcasts - This is VANCOLOUR hosted by a Canadian rising-star, Mo Amir.Think elected officials are always so careful with what they say that they don't say anything at all? Brad West, Mayor of Port Coquitlam, BC is not that kind of politician. In fact, his candid and often scathing remarks on political culture, communications, and cynicism will make your jaw drop. As will West's biting critique of specific high-profile political leadership (he names names!) leaving office for lobbyist jobs and work that he describes as against the national interest - sometimes even for foreign governments - is a rattling reality check for why Canadians need to get involved in politics now more than ever.  Immensely popular, Mayor West's profile in British Columbia is on the rise as a truly fresh voice in the political landscape. _______________________________________________Support FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) and Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) pull no punches this week: Peter MacKay shows why he's unfit to lead the country & while he'll lead the federal Conservatives - at the same time; the irrational reasons the irrational Left hate the rational Pete Buttigeig, the egomania fueling Bernie Sanders and his supporters' conspiracy theories, how Bernie Bros & Trumpers are cut from the same cloth and more commentaries sure to enrage people who are already outraged or looking to be.Listen.

It's a Man's World. That doesn't mean the world doesn't chew them up and spit them out. Men over 50 have the highest suicide rates. Societal messages haven't taught men how to reach out for nor accept help. Whether our spouses, sons, fathers or friends, there are men in the lives of women who need help.

Ed the Sock doing what  he does best - saying the things you want to say.To both the Right & the Left a question: What the Hell is wrong with you people??! Anyone with a different opinion is "evil"; you pick a 'team' and anything someone on your 'team' does you support and anything 'their team' does you scream your heads off with outrage - even when both those people have done the exact same thing!And if someone on your team says anything positive about someone on the other team, you turn on your 'traitorous' now-former ally like a pack of wild dogs!Don't fool yourself into believing 'they' are the problem - thinking like that makes you the problem' too! Righteous indignation does not mean you are right!We're living The Lord of the Flies (it's a book, read it), picking tribes & behaving as Identity Politics soldiers in a stupid Culture War. And it's all a bunch of immature bullshit for cowards who don't have the guts to think for themselves! And for people lacking in common sense, individuality or any iota of consistent principles.In short - smarten up or shut the f*ck up! The alt.right and control.left are taken us all down a rabbit hole to oblivion!Ed wants you to know - Left or Right - he's not on your 'team' - and you shouldn't be either! __________________________________________________Straight talk.

Broken Clock is a podcast about critical thinking. Remember that thing people used to do before drinking one team or another's Kool-Aid became so much easier than thinking for yourself?In each episode of Broken Clock, Liana Kerzner and Maus Merryjest (no, that's not his real name; if you needed to be told that, you are in serious need of this podcast) discuss how to bring reason, plausibility and facts to bear on everything from politics to pop culture. And they also point out where people typically go wrong when they don't use their noodles.In this debut first episode (probably redundant, 'debut' and 'first episode'), Liana and Maus exchange their critical thinking pet peeves: exceptions, fallacy fallacies, conflating correlation and causation and more, all leading to a discussion about online arguments over Star Wars.____Broken Clock - a Critical Thinking Podcast is part of Wave Two of series on FU_Politics as we continue our mission of restoring to everyday Canadians the important dialogues we need to have, without the barriers to entry blocked by pundits paid political proxies partisans and radicals that have taken over mainstream news media. Restoring intelligent discourse with a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions - that's FU_Politics. Shows that sound like you - because we are you.  And FU stands for more tha an attitude - also For Us and For U.

Jean Charest - gone. Pierre Poilievre - gone. Rona Ambrose - gone. All serious candidates for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada; some announced their leadership bid only to withdraw shortly thereafter, or declined to run. Who's been pulling the strings behind the scenes to make these once very-committed candidates to drop out?Meanwhile former PM Stephen Harper resigns from the board of the Conservative Fund, rumoured to be inspired by his desire to block Charest. But was that the reason? Is Harper the one still controlling the CPC and if so, did he get other serious candidates to walk away to clear the decks for Peter MacKay...or did he do it to clear the decks for his own bid to re-take the leadership?!Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) and Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) discuss these tantalizing speculations - and if there's a well-known, well-liked non-political person in the wings planning to do what Bloomberg & Steyer did to the US Democratic race?Listen.

You've heard the saying - "The only difference between men and boys is the size of their toys." (Why is it always about size?)In this less serious, more fun episode, our Mensplaining panelists talk about their favourite boyhood toys and how those toys reflected who they were, how they were taught about 'manliness' and what kids gained by playing with real, plastic toys, in person with friends or alone with their own imaginations, and the importance of it all. Hey - support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

As she continues her deep-dive into bullying in the electronic age, Michelle Budiwski shares her own insight as both a victim of bullying and as a teenage bully herself.  Because before we can effectively combat cyber-bullying we have to be brutally honest and face the uncomfortable truths of why bullies bully, where they learn to bully and how they choose their victims._____Hey - what Michelle talks about on Keeping It Real is important stuff, the kind of stuff regular Canadians face every day but escape the attention of the moneyed and political classes. So support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations that the powers-that-be try to suppress with distracting stories about beards and donuts.  At FUN - The FU_Network our shows sound like you - because we are you.  Become a monthly patron at patreon.com/funetworktv or give us a one time boost at Paypal - funetworktv@gmail.com.

The schoolyard bully is a trope - someone many of us had to face down or left us face-down. But then we could go home and be safe. That was before the internet. Now, no place is safe, for kids or adults. The internet has made it possible for bullies to harass, threaten, extort and humiliate people 24/7. Social media especially thrives on adults bullying adults, adults bullying kids, kids bullying kids and hate oozing through society from every electronic orifice. How do we shut these bullies down and how do we teach our children compassion, empathy and respect while they're growing up in an internet fueled age of rage?Hey, look down here...yeah, right here...now that we got your attention, how about throwing your support behind our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

While the rest of the media cries its crocodile tears over the tragedy of lives lost on a Ukrainian airliner, using it as grist for the mill of political reporting of Trump-centric clickbait, this FU_Politics Report focuses on the real victims - the dead, their families and loved ones.This kind of tragedy has happened before. One of them resulted in even greater loss of Canadian life - the Air India terrorist bombing of 1985, which took off from Montreal and exploded over the Atlantic. There's much to learn from every tragedy. What did we learn from Air India? What mistakes did the government and media make? What did they get right? And how can those lessons be applied to reduce the human cost to the loved ones and friends of those who died on Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752?Both our guests have very direct, very different personal connections to the Air India bombing and offer their reflections, experience and advice on a very human level.Host: Steven KerznerPanel:Taleeb Noormohamed was the director of the Air India review secretariat, responsible for all activities related to the review of the bombing investigation and the final report issued by bob rae, including coordinating with agencies of the Canadian government including the RCMP, CSIS and Transport Canada as well as with foreign government and working with the families of the victims.Liana Kerzner, co-founder of FU_Network, host of the FU_Politics podcast Hey Ladies, a broadcaster, award-winning TV writer/producer/performer, radio host, popular Youtuber, journalist and public speaker. But for this show, none of that matters. What matters is that Liana, as a girl in 1st grade, lost her friend and classmate to a terrorist air tragedy.Putting a human spin on the news.

Liana Kerzner and panel take no prisoners- again - with this honest, blunt, insightful discussion about he word "Slut" - where it came from (not where you think), how it's changed, how it's used today, it's power and meaning to each panelist. Host:Liana Kerzner is a podcaster, Youtuber,  award-winning TV producer/writer/host, radio broadcaster, journalist & public speaker. Panel:Roze Jardine - Producer and playwright Roze Jardine is a life coach and a youth advocate, who uses the arts as a catalyst to bring to light a variety of social issues for the purpose of dialogue, community engagement and social change.Lex Gore - very non-traditional wife & mother, punk musician, anti-hate activist who's "'triggered' people by encouraging critical thinking and not subscribing to every ever changing word mincing semantic piece of dogma the far left and right constantly spew." Her words, not ours. But very true.You won't find down-to-earth, no BS, intelligent talk anywhere else in Canadian media. That's why we created FU_Politics.

Neil Waytowich (@waytowichneil) speaks with three Ontarians who have been directly affected by Doug Ford’s cuts - three people with very personal stories to tell.It is time to calculate the human cost of the Ford government's "efficiencies" and hear from real people who have been affected by the callous cuts used to fund Ford's wasteful pet peeves: proud autism mom and advocate, Suzi Panovska-Guarrasi. A certified teacher with 12 years experience who received a redundancy notice, Sarah Carlyon. I also speak with reluctant autism advocate and Twitter (bleeped)-kicking machine, Dr. Hannah Rasmussen. Together they represent Doug Ford's worst nightmare.________________________Hey - support our mission at FU_Politics, telling the stories of real people the media elites ignore, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Ali Velshi is an Emmy-award-winning journalist, best-selling author, noted expert on finance & business and a star anchor on cable news network MSNBC.How did a Canadian, born in Kenya, come to be such a powerful voice in American cable news?Steven talks to Ali about that journey and the challenges facing journalists in Trump's America, the gulf between stories the news/political classes focus on and what's important to everyday people, how to fight deliberate ignorance and opposition to facts and the type of news stories which continue to haunt him.A 'must-listen' for those concerned about the spread of false news, 'fake news' and the political forces promoting both. Plus, there's also the trademark FU_Politics humour that keeps the conversation entertaining as well as informative.Host: Steven Kerzner, founder of FUN - The FU_Network, award-winning TV writer/producer, radio host and multimedia consultant.If you like this show and it's jargon-free, peer-level style - support our mission at FU_Politics of restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to media.

When Da Vinci made the Mona Lisa, there was no sequel. When Michaelangelo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, did he paint 6 other ceilings? Even up to the 1970s, sequels weren't an automatic response to a movie making money. So why did Star Wars need 6 movies made after the original trilogy stamped its cultural imprint on the world?Did the prequels/sequels make the Skywalker saga deeper & richer, or did they just dilute the potency of the original three films?Guest host Steven Kerzner and his panel discuss & debate this topic plus the many ways Star Wars was a game-changer for science-fiction, sci-fi cinema, licensed movie merchandise and more. Also how Star Wars fans ruined Star Wars!Hey, support our rebel alliance at FU_Politics trying to overthrow, or at least put up a good fight, against powerful corporate media empires that want to stomp out any resistance to their money-making, soul-eating agendas.

Ground zero for the so-called "War on Christmas" was retail clerks & cashiers being told not to say "Merry Christmas" to customers, replaced with the generic "Happy Holidays." This spread and became the new normal for businesses and politicians and all in the name of inclusiveness - not wanting to offend people of non-Christian faiths. But did anyone ask the people of non-Christian faiths if hearing "Merry Christmas" offended them??Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) hosts a panel of Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Atheists and others to talk ask about "Merry Christmas," but also about what the Christmas holiday season means to people raised in different faith & non-faith backgrounds, what traditions non-Christians have developed to make the holiday meaningful to them. If you're expecting a brawl-for-it-all between competing faiths & atheists & lost of Christmas-bashing - well...spoiler alert - your expectations are off-base. These are Canadians, after all.Is "Merry Christmas" offensive to non-Christians? Listen to the show.

What, we can't be trusted to see our own passwords?!!And the topic nobody wants to talk about but everyone wants addressed: toilet seat etiquette when having guests over.

#SCHEERHYPOCRISY was trending during the election - turns out it was right!

We're not getting the governance we deserve, and Steven & Stephen discuss a few reasons why:How can Trudeau's Liberals govern when the "loyal opposition" is only loyal to itself and its future political fortunes? Opposition parties are supposed to find ways to improve or point out the flaws or overlooked issues in proposed legislation so the best laws go into place for the Canadian people. This can't happen when it's "us vs them" instead of all parties working for the good of Canadians.Also, did Trudeau really do anything wrong at the NATO summit? SHould world leaders recognize that in a public gathering, mics are everywhere and be discreet? Will this affect our relations with the USA?And Trudeau-bashing itself -blackface, brownface, etc - has taken the place of actual cogent criticism of his government's policies and performance. Who is this helping?!Insightful, informative, engaging and funny conversation with @stephenlautens & @stevenjkerzner - just two guys who know things! Hey - support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Neil (Zod) and community newspaper publisher, author and musician Dave Bidini discuss the challenges facing independent journalism, life as a musician in Canada, and Dave's evolution as an author and artist and what it means to tell uniquely Canadian stories. In a wide ranging conversation Mo Amir and Neil discuss Canadian identity, what separates Canadians from Americans, wexit and western alienation, and Canadian patriotism.

What should we expect - or are expectations only a precursor to disappointment?

He is absolutely not qualified to talk about politics, but he doesn’t care. When not complaining about conservatives, he is usually at a punk show, or a Jays game. Cameron Bishop is a political junkie, a former Liberal staffer to MPs and cabinet ministers and a is passionate about engaging progressive Canadians. He’s the product of a Conservative upbringing but embraces the fight for social justice, equity & equality and fairness for all. You’ll never see him at a punk show or a Jays game, because when it comes to music and sport he’s pretty well illiterate.  Hey - support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

International Men's Day happened recently, and the mockery the hashtag got on Twitter from first women, then some men, underscored how little is understood or respected about the issues Men face, because 'patriarchy'. This isn't about the Men's Rights Movement, who are primarily a bunch of anti-women whackos, this is about things like men over 50 having the highest suicide rate in North America - why?? We offer some answers, including how men make their job not what they do but who they are; why men don't seek out care for mental health issues - or admit they have them.

On October 30, 2019 the news of an innocent 3 year-old child stabbed in his bed while he slept rocked the city of Winnipeg. He died three days later and as news of this horrific crime came to light and the history of Intimate Partner Violence between the child's mother and his killer came to light. The keyboard warriors of social media went on the attack looking to place blame. But this tragic story isn't about blame. It's about responsibility - OUR responsibility as a society to keep the conversations going so that we can bridge the gaps that failed this child and this family and prevent another tragedy from ever happening again.Domestic violence and abuse has not disappeared from our communities, we just don't talk about it - and if we don't talk about it, we can never fix it.So - let's talk. Now. Host: Michelle BidiwskiSupport our work to bring important dialogues to Canadians without the screaming matches, salacious innuendo or obvious political agendas seen in other media.

So many topics flow from one to another it's hard to list them all, but some main ones: societal pressures men face & women who laugh at them, why the umpteenth "Charlie's Angels" reboot movie failed - and it ain't sexism like director Elizabeth Banks claims (great way to deflect from making a crappy movie). ALSO - learning to apply the lost art of critical thinking using the Don Cherry/Jess Allen/Trudeau Blackface social media war.

CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS - WHERE DID THEY GO? CAN WE GET THEM BACK?!If you spend any time on social media you've heard the term 'false equivalency' - well between comparing Don Cherry to Jess Allen to Justin Trudeau, this past week has elevated false equivalency to new heights. But 'false equivalency' is a product of a lack of critical thinking - an inability to think logically in favour of emotional reactions and cheering on your 'team'.Where did critical thinking go? How did it slip away? How can we get it back? Can we get it back?? And why is critical thinking essential to a functioning democracy?All important questions. Be prepared to think.

“Don Cherry is not the disease, he is a symptom – a symptom of a society that has far too long turned a blind eye and silent ear to casual bigotry and hatred in our country.

Two things you're not supposed to talk about - Religion & Politics. We talk about both!!!In America, you can't get elected without declaring your pious religious beliefs (except Trump and we cover that).In Canada - different story. Political leaders who wear their religion on their sleeve - we're not interested. Just ask Andrew Scheer.Lots of history, context and insights why mixing religion & politics doesn't appeal to Canadians, just how different Canadians & Americans are on religion (it's a huge gap - and growing) and why there is no legitimate anti-Catholic bias against Andrew Scheer!Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) is a lawyer, political analyst, historian (not the boring kind) and political satirist.Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner), the creator of Ed the Sock, is a political commentator, satirist and critical-thinking advocate (not the boring kind).Support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring to Canadian media the intelligence, civility, opinions based in fact and a sense of humour that we've been missing!

How about we adults take a break from arguing over Don Cherry & Jess Allen and take a look at one of the valid questions her whiny personal anecdote raised: does junior hockey breed bullies? Probably one of the best shows we've done. Certainly the biggest panel. Host/Ref: Ed the SockPanel:Michael Landsberg is someone who arguably has talked to more Jocks than anyone in the history of Canada as 18-year host of the sports panel show Off the Record on TSN and now divides his time between co-hosting mornings on TSN 1050 radio in Toronto and his mental health awareness and advocacy group, Sick not Weak.Nathan Chiarlitti played five years in the Ontario Hockey League with the Sarnia Sting and the Owen Sound Attack, also 3 played 3 seasons St. Francis Xavier University, where he got his Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics and then played two seasons at McGill University, while completing a Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology. He’s currently a med student at U of Ottawa and wrote a book called More Than a Game, about his time on the ice and the life lessons kids learn playing our national pastime.Matt Park grew up playing minor league hockey with what was then the MTHL and has an uncle and cousin who made it on the ice in the pro league. He now works in corporate communications, making him one of the few living beings who was able to make an English degree work for him.Andrew Willis is Andrew Willis. That should be enough introduction. He’s a giant personality with bold opinions & often interesting life experiences we only hear the tip of. He hosts Andyland radio every Wednesday at 10:30PM west coast time on CiTR 101.9 FM. and find it there for streaming too. I don’t know if Andy ever played team sports and if so, what he would define as a team sport.Paul Marlow has been a fitness trainer for a decade, before which he played high school rugby, volleyball, soccer, baseball and basketball but cut down to only two sports when he was at an American university, and he was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays but politely declined. Hafeez Noorani is a digital marketing professional specializing in getting businesses online, which means he's more or less a field pylon when it comes to sports. Though he brings countless years of experience in being picked last in Phys Ed. If you'd like to support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring to Canadian media the intelligence, civility, opinions based in fact and a sense of humour that we've been missing, consider becoming a patron, with a monthly donation (whatever you can afford) or a one-time gift of support.

Ed the Sock's stream-of-consciousness opinions and musings as he drives from home to Toronto meetings. Like James Joyce's Ulysses on four wheels. Actually recorded while driving and yes, we don't recommend you do this, safety, blah blah blah, but Ed vents his spleen (and curses other drivers & Toronto roadways) when he's driving all the time anyway, so this is just adding a recording device. Topics include - Elizabeth May - who cares? Green Party - go away! That dumb glare male drivers give each other when passing, why baths are disgusting vs showers, Why "Gilligan's Island" should be taught alongside Shakespeare, Ed's current favourite and least-favourite TV shows, what the letters HBO really stand for...honestly, the list is too long.

Megan Murphy. Toronto Public Library. Google them to read about the clash between 'free-speech' advocates and LGBTQ+ community over letting a known transphobic speaker do her thing on city-owned property.Is a person's right to free speech more important than the damage that speech may cause? In Canada, the Charter of Rights & Freedoms says no. Most people don't know this - nor have a firm grasp of what 'the right to free speech' actually refers to.Does a woman espousing transphobic comments have a "right" to speak at a city-owned venue, or is her speech and its contribution to real violence against human beings being the kind of thing that the Charter meant about imposing "reasonable limits" to spouting off opinions?Is refusing to allow a transphobe a platform in a city-owned building a slippery-slope to the wholesale loss of everyone's freedom to express opinions that are generally unpopular and inaccurate?

That's a frikkin' stupid question. But that was the headline on numerous articles based on "a study in new journal Sex Roles, a 2018 US federal report led by Pennsylvania State University psychologist Janet Swim, has found participants assessing eco-friendly activity would be more likely to question the sexuality of a man who engaged in things they saw as more “feminine” green behaviours."So it's a dumb question. But listen to how dumb headlines lead to an interesting discussion about the strong messages men still receive about what's "MANLY" -- and what isn't.

It actually made him cry. On national TV.On an election eve TV broadcast, prominent conservative TV & radio broadcaster Charles Adler could no longer deny to himself or anyone else that the Conservative Party he had supported for decades was gone. No longer socially progressive and fiscally conservative, the present Conservative Party of Canada is home to "...extremists...Islamophobes...white nationalists or white supremacists...misogynists. The usual suspects of people who we choose not to associate with."And it made him cry. His political home was gone.What finally brought Charles to this realization? The answer is sincere & emotional - both things modern Conservative Party members frown upon.When did the conservative movement in Canada lose its soul and can it be reclaimed? Steven and Charles talk about this and other related topics important to progressives, conservatives and our country.Charles Adler is an Emmy Award-winning TV & radio broadcaster with decades of experience in Canada and the United States and an iconic voice of rational, reasonable conservative thought. His radio program, Charles Adler Tonight, is heard weekdays on Global News Radio (and, of course, also available at all times on the internet). The Kerzner Expedition is an #FU_Politics Original Podcast No pundits, no jargon, no zealots - honest talk with knowledgeable, opinionated people w/sense of humour. Listen & Subscribe to #FU_Politics at: iTunes - Rate, Review and Subscribe!https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/fu-politics/id1472299923 Spotifyhttps://open.spotify.com/show/4YQ4rklq8bcsmhTfqgj9jH iHeart Radiohttps://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-fu-politics-48983352/ YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBRvebbl4FVT9dWt0IdE8ccD1cOkPO5a7  Podbeanhttps://fupolitics.podbean.com Google Playhttps://play.google.com/music/m/Ilgcik5imfx5qwtzxivpyblb2p4 Stitcherhttps://www.stitcher.com/podcast/fun-the-fu-network/fu-politics Player FMhttps://player.fm/series/fu-politics-2521543 Tune In / Alexahttp://tun.in/pjtS0 RSS Feedhttps://feed.podbean.com/fupolitics/feed.xml

He's got a solid record of community involvement at the highest levels, care for the needy, a business background and graduated from Princeton & Yale. Taleeb Noormohamed is a smart guy. So why would he want to run as the new Liberal candidate against former Attorney-General and deified avatar of truth, newly independent (read: kicked out) candidate Jody Wilson-Raybould?The local race, like many around the country, is neck-and-neck.Steven talks to Taleeb about why he chose to run, what his values are, his feelings about black/brownface, facing real racism and the feeling among constituents that issues that matter to their community have been sidelined in favour of the JWR circus. Also, why an independent MP may as well be an empty seat.Host: Steven Kerzner - http://Twitter.Com/StevenJKerznerTaleeb On Twitter: https://twitter.com/Taleeb Support honest, frank, insightful & funny political content, the kind that speaks the way you speak and talks with you, not at you.

Laura Budd is a Canadian, active in her community, and happened one afternoon to bump into her MP (at the time) Andrew Scheer. She asked him a question about whether he'd protect trans rights. His answer: he wants to 'cure' them.He said he opposes Gay Conversion 'Therapy'. Apparently he supports Trans Conversion 'Therapy'? Short interview, but important look into the mind of the man who wants to be our national leader. Host: Steven Kerzner - http://Twitter.Com/StevenJKerznerAfter listening you'll know why Canada needs #FU_Politics - real talk about real issues with real people from a politically moderate position!

Liberals and Conservatives are neck-and-neck in the polls. If Liberals get most number of seats, but not a majority, they form a Minority Government.If the Conservatives get most number of seats, but not a majority - The Liberals may still become the next government!Facts: Trudeau is PM until he resigns or is dismissed by the Governor-General. If he says he intends to form a government with help of smaller parties, or if Governor-General determines the Conservatives, even with highest seat count, can't effectively gain confidence of the House, Trudeau would remain PM - even if the Liberals win fewer seats than the Cons.It's all legal, proper and constitutional. We've just never experienced in our lifetimes (last time was 1919). Canadians won't understand what happened. And Scheer & his partisans will be apoplectic! If you think they fought dirty and misrepresented facts DURING the election (they did) wait'll you see the Conservatives when they are denied government! The rhetoric, the lies, the rage - it'll go to 11.

The 2019 Canadian election was not only the ugliest one in memory, it was also a field guide on how NOT to run a campaign. ALL of them - Liberal, Conservative and NDP!

Steven Kerzner speaks to Hon. Marlene Jennings about Parliamentry Privilege, an issue that was a big one in Election 2019 before...other...stories took its place. But Canadians are still left not knowing what PP is, beyond what the media ( biased and unbiased), political parties and uninformed loudmouths on the internet tell them it is,Is Parliamentary Privilege designed to hide secrets of government misdeeds? Or is it there to protect the public? And in denying some testimony to happen during the SNC affair using PP (I know, pee pee, move on), did the Privy Council act to cover the ass of Prime Minister Trudeau or is PM JT quietly taking slings & arrows to protect innocent Canadians from being dragged into murky matters they don't deserve to be?Hon. Marlene Jennings  is the former Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for International Cooperation and the former Parliamentary Secretary to the Solicitor General of Canada. From 2004 to October 2005, she was Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister with special emphasis on Canada-U.S. relations.

Like Elton John sings, "Sorry seems to be the hardest word."But does it make it hard to get hard too? Does apologizing impair a man's masculinity? Make you weak, effeminate, a loser?Or is the ability to apologize a very "manly" quality?And are there times when it's more admirable NOT to apologize?Also, forgiveness. Is it 'girly-man' to grant forgiveness or the act of a mature male?And during this podcast, panelist Andrew Willis does something which MAY be unforgivable! Host: Ed the SockPanelists:Hafeez Noorani - Producer of "Mensplaining", digital content and marketing expert. @FeezyDoes ItAndrew Willis - Host of "Andyland Radio with Andrew Willis" streaming on andylandradio.com Wednesdays 10:30PM -12:30AM PST. @AndyLandRadioAndrew D.

So he's human after all. Justin Trudeau did dumb things when he was younger just like everyone else.

"Don't make me angry...you won't like me when I'm angry." That's what David Banner warned people just before turning into TV's Incredible Hulk.Well, Neil's angry - and we do like him! Soft-spoken Neil takes a bite out of Andrew Scheer's fake tax cuts as he and Lauren expose Scheer's deceptive tactics and discuss political burnout and Neil talks with Gerry Nichols, former VP to Stephen Harper at the ultra-conservative National Citizens Coalition, about Stephen Harper, how conservatism has changed, about the election campaign and the party leaders, as well as the importance of reaching across party lines and realizing that we are all Canadians. Gerry is a straight shooter who pulls no punches about the state of Canadian politics. And in a special satirical twist, Neil closes with 'story time'. Hosts: Neil Waytowich - http://Twitter.Com/ThatsMrNeil Lauren Griffith - http://Twitter.Com/HalandLolo

Once, in the early days of TV, the message was Father Knows Best. But it's been a slip-slide from capable, professional, competent TV sitcom fathers to Tim Taylor, Al Bundy, Kevin James, Jim Belushi, Jay Pritchett, Danny Tanner... why does TV tell us that men are incompetent dads full of hare-brained schemes they require their wife to bail them out of? Oh and by the way, the guy is usually half a slob and his wife could win a beauty contest. What does this tell us about what society expects of men, and what men expect from society?Don't worry, it's funny too.Host:Ed the Sock - http://Twitter.Com/EdTheSockPanelists:Andrew Willis - http://Twitter.Com/AndyLandRadioMo Amir - http://Twitter.Com/VancolourStuart Benson - http://Twitter.Com/LeftHandStuHey, did you know you can take credit for us making more shows?

Andrew Scheer keeps pledging that he'll 'put more money back in our pocket'. It's a frequent promise by political leaders. But has ANY government ever really put a noticeable amount of 'money back in our pocket' without taking more of it from the other pocket?

This week Neil introduces new co-host Lauren Griffith, and they speed date for co-hosts with the 2019 Federal Election, discuss how poor Andrew Scheer was, Twitter punditry, and rap battles for political junkies.  Neil talks with Max Fawcett about forgiveness in the age of social media and why politicians deserve a second chance after social media mistakes. We also discuss why Alberta has to change it's thinking regarding it's oil and gas resources to find the prosperity it seeks, Jason Kenney's belligerency and his national political aspirations, and the upcoming election. In the final segment, Neil talks with autism mom and advocate @AlineSociology about changes to the autism program at CHEO, about the disastrous management of the Ontario Autism Program by the Ford Government, the negative effect of these changes have had immigrant families, and what she would like to say to Todd Smith.
