The Dry Shave Show #109: Fake Comedy

Time for another episode of everyone’s favourite political comedy podcast, The Dry Shave Show! Hosted by Byron Bertram, our very own Ivan Penaluna, and news girl Pyra Draculea.

Bonus: this week we’re joined by our special guest Mark Hughes.

This week: Fake Comedy

Ivan and Byron are joined this week by Vancouver stand-up and founder of the Comedy Shocker Mark Hughes to discuss the craft of comedy and what is or is not funny and acceptable to joke about.

They also chat about victim worship and other societal horrors such as prison rape and slam poetry before getting into news stories about Nazi pugs, a hate crime in which paparazzi ask to see Bruce Jenner’s dick, and fake comedy like Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Trevor Noah, and other “globo-cuck” comedians who are really in the business of propaganda.

Cultural Marxism Explained

Anyone who suggests that Cultural Marxism is a fabrication of the right, needs to see this film made in 1985, in which ex-KGB officer, Yuri Bezmenov details the strategy and methods behind what he describes as ‘Ideological Subversion.’

You have to wonder what Bezemov would make of the death spiral Western culture now finds itself in, with slut walks; gender pro nouns; race as a construct and ‘Islamaphobia.’

And whilst our Western liberal democracies are no longer capable of defending themselves due to the ideological rot which Cultural Marxism has spawned (a rot almost entirely epitomized by the world view of Canada’s Justin Trudeau), former Soviet Bloc European leaders have no problem identifying and resisting the utter lunacy of such thinking.

If Islamic terror attacks serve one purpose, it is to highlight what a pathetic specimen Western civilization has become after decades of cultural Marxism & political correctness have ground us down to a pith of emasculated self-loathing and insecurity.

The sum total of our permissible response to yet another attack from an enemy within, and whom we continue to welcome onto our shores in increasing numbers, is to wash our social media profile picture with the relevant flag and speak of our surprise & non-specific sadness at another act of predictable violence at the hands of an enemy whose name cannot be uttered.

For anyone outside of this paradigm, this borders upon a collective mental illness of cult proportions. Our inability to even identify the threat means that we have little chance of addressing it, and absolutely no chance of defeating it. Which in turn inevitably leads to a state of resignation, as we have to admit that after decades of dismantling our societies from within, cultural Marxism & political correctness have left our societies unable to respond, let alone defend a civilization that has been crafted with blood and reason over a thousand years to provide a societal model that others have sought to adopt and emulate.

It’s truly appalling what we have become, but it was by design, not accident.

Cultural Marxism Has Left Us Defenceless To Islam

The Dry Shave Show #108: CNN Not Over Russia

Time for another episode of everyone’s favourite political comedy podcast, The Dry Shave Show! Hosted by Byron Bertram, our very own Ivan Penaluna, and news girl Pyra Draculea.

This week: CNN Not Over Russia

Ivan and Byron laugh about how CNN obsesses over Russia like a scorned lover who totally swears she’s over her ex—despite constantly talking about him; ignorance in state schools, Bill Nye’s ice cream propaganda, and news stories about banning Mothers’ & Fathers’ Day school crafts in elementary schools and applause during speeches on college campuses, both in the name of inclusivity.

Also, people who reveal truth are the enemy, Antifa are the new Khmer Rouge but with worse hygiene, the pedo sex Wreck Beach Nazi, and “whole lotta pedo goin’ on” in Jerry Lee Lewis’s marriage and “the religion of special needs.”

PS: Some day scientists will find JFK’s brain and be able to find out what Marilyn Monroe’s hoo-ha felt like.

MSM & Dems Suck Deep State Cock

After over six months of pimping their alternate reality in an attempt to undermine & unseat Trump, the Democrats’ Russian narrative has managed to reach terminal velocity without any fuel. It is quite a feat really when you think about it.

Narratives without evidence are propaganda; lies brought to life and given credibility merely through the act of repeating them, as we have seen Demococrats and the MSM do incessantly for the past 6 months.

In fact, the blanket coverage CNN continues to provide this story should be embarrasing; they are not journalists at this stage, they are errand boys whose diet seems to now exclusively consist of burgers, soda & Deep State sperm.

Opposition to this assertion is not helped by a recent Harvard University report into Media bias over the Trump  campaign and subsequent presidency. The figures are truly shocking and led Tucker Carlson to declare that there was more diversity of press opinion in Ceauscescu’s Romania. (Ouch)

Harvard Study Reveals Huge Extent Of Anti-Trump Media Bias

20170519_bias1.jpg

“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels. Among psychologists something like this known as the “illusion of truth” effect. Read More

In contrast, last night on Carlson’s Show, Davis Hanson soberly laid out what we know for sure: that he Trump Russian narrative was created during the nomination process by Never Trump Republicans, who commissioned a report compliled by a British ex-intelligence agent. After Trump got the nomination, it was passed on to the Clinton campaign and forgotten about… until she lost that is. Then it was resurrected and employed as an excuse, after which, it somehow ended up in the hands of the FBI Director and leaked to media sources. Et voila: Trump is a Russian agent.

The Dry Shave Show #107: ‘Allo, Allah!

Time for another episode of everyone’s favourite political comedy podcast, The Dry Shave Show! Hosted by Byron Bertram, our very own Ivan Penaluna, and news girl Pyra Draculea.

This week: ‘Allo, Allah!

When it comes to jihad, France just can’t get enough and chooses suicide by Emmanuel Macron’s globalist, pro-EU, and open-borders policies (plus his “Satan’s Cornflake” wife) while Byron gets nostalgic for the electric chair and the good old days when perverts weren’t lazy and Ivan muses about how good reggae must be dripping with either the Old Testament or big bouncing asses. The guys also discuss the local BC provincial elections—in which Ivan’s kid endorses Tucker Carlson—before getting into news about shooting down drones in Kentucky and immunity for drivers who run over protesters.

Plus: social justice aliens, how to tell if something’s Communist, “Fake Tits America”, and how the relationship between the Deep State and Islamic terrorists blossomed in the Soviet-Afghanistan war of the 1980s.

Canada’s Looming Housing Collapse

Over recent months, Zerohedge have been running an increasing number of article dedicated to the overheated Canadian real estate market and the sureal conditions such temperatures have created.

Feb 2017 Vancouver Home Sales Crash 40%, As Toronto Home Prices Soar 22%

Apr 2017 Attention Turns To Toronto’s Subprime Debt Time Bomb

Well, last week the alarm bells started ringing as it was announced that Home Capital Group, Canada’s largest independant mortgage provider, was in trouble and required a bail out of $2 billion. This news resulted in a one day drop in the share value of a staggering 60%, and 71% overall.

Canada’s Housing Bubble Explodes As Its Biggest Alternative Mortgage Lender Crashes Most In History

Home Capital Group cratered by over 60%, its biggest drop on record, after the company disclosed that it struck an emergency liquidity arrangement for a C$2 billion ($1.5 billion) credit line to counter evaporating deposits at terms that will leave the alternative mortgage lender unable to meet financial targets, and worse, may leave it insolvent in very short notice.

And they weren’t alone…

So where did this $2 billion bailout come from? This is where it gets interesting.

One day later, it emerged that the lender behind HCG’s (pre-petition) rescue loan was none other than the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP). As Bloomberg reported, the Toronto-based pension plan – which represented more than 321,000 healthcare workers in Ontario – gave the struggling Canadian mortgage lender the loan to shore up liquidity as it faces a run on deposits amid a probe by the provincial securities regulator. Home Capital had also retained RBC Capital Markets and BMO Capital Markets to advise on “strategic options” after it secured the loan.

Why did HOOPP put itself, or rather its constituents in the precarious position of funding what is a very rapidly melting ice cube? The answer to that emerged when we learned that HOOPP President and CEO Jim Keohane also sits on Home Capital’s board and is also a shareholder.

But it got worse for HCG:

On Thursday we observed that as concerns about HCG’s viability mounted, depositors were quietly pulling their funding from from savings accounts at subsidiary Home Trust. By Wednesday, when Home Capital revealed it was seeking a $2-billion loan to backstop its sinking savings deposits, shareholders ran for the exits, driving down the company’s share price by 65 per cent on Wednesday alone, and heightening the sense of panic.

On Friday, the company revealed that high-interest savings account balances fell another 36% to $521-million by Friday morning, down by a whopping $293 million from $814-million Thursday and more than $2-billion a month ago.

Panic Bank Run Leaves Canada’s Largest Alternative Mortgage Lender On Edge Of Collapse

Considering the lack of reporting on any of this in the MSM, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was all taking place in an alternate dimension.

But don’t expect CBC or CTV to share this news with you any time soon; they will keep this boat afloat and the illusion of stability going as long as they can.

But there is another concerning aspect to this story: Canadian household debt

A whopping 31% of respondents said they already don’t make enough to meet all their financial obligations.

Half Of Canadians Have $200 Or Less In Savings

It would appear that in order to afford their increasingly expensive standard of living, Canadians have been forced to take on an unprecedented level of debt, with little understanding of how it really works.

Roughly 60 per cent of respondants said they don’t have a firm grasp of how interest rates affect debt repayments. 

Well, let us explain:

A decision by the BoC to start lifting its key policy rate from historic lows would raise the cost of carrying debt across the country. A one percentage point rise in the BoC’s key interest rate would likely push up variable mortgage rates by a similar amount. A variable mortgage rate that’s currently set at 3 per cent, for example, would go up to 4 per cent, which represents a 33 per cent increase in interest payments for the mortgage holder. That’s an extra $83 a month for every $100,000 in outstanding mortgage debt.

It would appear that many Canadaians are so highly leveraged, that even a modest hike in interest rates would shake many of those hands from the tree. And this combination of household debt and an overheated housing market leaves the Canadian economy on the verge of a housing and debt crisis, the likes of which we last saw south of the border in 2008.

May 11:  Moody’s downgrades Canadian banks: Beginning of the end for the housing market?

Credit ratings agency Moody’s Investors Service downgraded Canada’s big six banks on Wednesday evening, citing concerns about soaring household debt and housing prices.

The Dry Shave Show #106: Sub-Prime Puthay

Time for another episode of everyone’s favourite political comedy podcast, The Dry Shave Show! Hosted by Byron Bertram, our very own Ivan Penaluna, and news girl Pyra Draculea.

This week: Sub-Prime Puthay

Ivan and Byron discuss the impending Canadian real estate crash, and Byron’s looking forward to finally being able to afford that dumpster home he’s had his eye on once Vancouver’s insane real estate bubble bursts. Meanwhile, Ivan gloats about being both recession- and earthquake-proof before the guys get into discussing the Saudis fighting Yemeni childhood obesity, ISIS-front real estate in Syria, right-wing ice cream, Hillary kissing KKK senator Robert Byrd, Pakistan being the porn search capital of the world, and how Trump vs. Lil’ Kim Jong Un is like the Mob taking on the local autistic kid.

Also: Axl Rose looks like an angry lesbian, KISS and Scooby Doo are the gateway drug to glam rock and ozone-depleting hairspray, the profound poetry of Mötley Crüe, weaponized wild boars, the “skinny white hoods” of the new inclusive KKK in the Pacific Northwest, conspiracy theories about John Lennon faking his own death, and Keith Richards is an immortal avatar of a Hindu god, sustained by goats’ blood transfusions while Bob Marley proved to be not nearly as resilient.

PS: “Goat, machine gun, lady with one leg, porn.”
