Trump Derangement Syndrome dominates the News from Nowhere

Welcome to a long-awaited (and long) News from Nowhere, which is once again dominated by the happenings of the White House of Pres. Donald Trump and all his opponents. Aren’t you fed up with Trump and everyone else yet? I sure am. Tonight, I am going to skewer Trump’s opponents. Honestly, I am getting completely…

Soccer dominates headlines in this week’s News from Nowhere

Welcome to News from Nowhere for this Sunday, and the news is totally dominated by soccer. Of course, there is the World Cup of Soccer, but there is other soccer team news. Namely, those kids from the soccer team in Thailand who need to be rescued from that cave they are trapped in. This story…

G7 implodes thanks to Pres. Donald Trump, and other News from Nowhere

Welcome to a long-awaited News from Nowhere, with most of the news in this edition emanating from the Upset States of America — and in particular, its upset President, Donald Trump. This man really is the one-man wrecking crew of the G7. These last few weeks have been proof of that! First, this guy Trump…

Another high-flying News from Nowhere

Welcome to another News from Nowhere, and this week it is going to be brief because this is summer and I’d rather spend the rest of tonight, and this week for that matter, listening to baseball games. Anyway, the big news this past week has been all about airplane crashes and about airlines not flying…

ROB FORD’S CRACK COCAINE ADMISSION LEADS THE NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Welcome again to News from Nowhere, and who knew that the top story from politics would be from Canada. That’s right, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford finally got around to admitting he has used crack cocaine. He told the press and then later had his big apology. The news has now gone viral worldwide. This story…

NEWS FROM NOWHERE IS NOW UP FOR A TURKEY-FILLED LONG WEEKEND

Welcome to another News from Nowhere, this time coinciding with Thanksgiving weekend here in frozen Canada — although to be honest, around here it is not “frozen” yet. But it will be, soon enough, so I’m enjoying what is four full days off from work before all that happens. After this post, I intend to…

BY GEORGE, IT’S A KING-SIZED EDITION OF NEWS FROM NOWHERE

It was quite a week of News from Nowhere this week, starting with the birth of the future King of England on Monday, named George Alexander Louis.  My reaction to that title was — well they have all of Europe covered because George is a good British name for monarchs, Alexander a good Russian name…

NEWS FROM NOWHERE WELCOMES OUR VIEWERS IN THE US GOVERNMENT

Welcome to News from Nowhere, our usual rundown of the news of the day. First of all, a big hello to President Barack Obama and the rest of you folks in the United States government, who no doubt are enjoying this blog and everyone else’s blogs, and Facebook and Twitter accounts too. Surely to God, though,…

WRAPPING UP A TOUGH WEEK OF NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Has this ever been a bad news week for the ages? At least Kim Jong-un didn’t drop a nuclear bomb on anyone — that would have been the icing on the cake. In addition to the Boston bombings was the Waco fertilizer-plant explosion that lost a lot of lives. What a week. Anyway, one thing we saw…

NORTH KOREA ANTICS, CYPRUS CHAOS, AND THE REST OF THE NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Welcome to the “World is Going to Heck” edition of News from Nowhere. Seriously, what is going on? Financial chaos, tinpot dictators, Jarome Iginla traded — you name it. First I want to talk about the financial mess in Cyprus, with the bank accounts being raided by up to 40 percent to bail the country out….

IT IS A METEORIC WEEK OF NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Good grief, could last week have been any weirder in terms of big news stories? I almost feel like this week’s News from Nowhere is like an episode of Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. First the week starts with the Pope resigning. Then you have a bolt of lightning hitting the Vatican. You cannot…

THE FINAL NEWS FROM NOWHERE OF 2012 IS A REAL CLIFF-HANGER

This will no doubt be my last News from Nowhere, and last post, of 2012. The top story in North America is the ongoing talks over the looming US “fiscal cliff”. The negotiations have been going in Congress today and the latest on that can be found here. Personally, I think some solution will be found since no one really wants…

THIS WEEK’S NEWS FROM NOWHERE IS A REAL HIGHWIRE ACT

Welcome again to News from Nowhere for this Monday night. I have a few items to share with you this night about all the happenings going on out there. I guess the first piece of business is to mention Nik Wallenda’s highwire crossing over Niagara Falls on Friday, which ended up a success. Of course, at…

NEWS FROM NOWHERE FOR A BEAUTIFUL MARCH SPRING DAY

Welcome back to another fabulous edition of News from Nowhere on this beautiful March day. Boy, do I have a lot to cover from the past week or so — like the embarrassing St. Patty’s Day riots in London, Ontario, the outrageous sexual abuse sentence that ex-coach Graham James got in Winnipeg, the earthquake in…

I’M BACK WITH NEWS FROM FREEZING COLD NOWHERE

Just want to say I’m back. I know, I’ve been away a while but I was busy at work the last several days. Then, last night I thought I might post, but then I realized that the whole World Wide Web (Wikipedia, Google etc) had shut down or otherwise launched their own protests over the USA’s proposed Stop Online…

NEWS FROM NOWHERE FOR A COLD FRIDAY NOVEMBER DAY

Well, welcome to another cold Friday. All I have to say is I’m very happy I still live somewhere where there is still no snow on the ground. I don’t know how long this will continue, though — I expect it will be blizzards and minus-30 in no time. Anyway, on to this week’s News from…

COLD NOVEMBER NEWS FROM NOWHERE

I am in the middle of tuning into another riveting World Series game, so this is going to be a fairly quick News from Nowhere for me, as I want to get this over with and watch the Giants try and eliminate the Rangers to win their first world title in something like 200 years….

OCTOBER NEWS FROM NOWHERE

It’s been about a week, so welcome to another News from Nowhere where we recount all the mayhem, death and destruction that has gone on around the world.

NEWS FROM NOWHERE IS BACK (BUT JAMES BOND IS NOT)

It is late August and after a bit of a hiatus News from Nowhere is back. It sure looks as if James Bond is not back, though. Production of his latest movie is postponed and we have no idea when the financial problems of MGM will be settled. So now we are getting the usual freakout…

SPORTS NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Well, it has been a busy week in the world of sports, going all the way back to last Wednesday when the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. It was an uncertain, chaotic end to the game, what with nobody except Patrick Kane knowing he scored the goal to win the Cup. But then again,…

TRYING DESPERATELY TO KEEP UP WITH THE NEWS FROM NOWHERE

I haven’t been at the blog very often lately, but that’s because I am busy resting up. I also have a bit of a break from work coming up soon, so I plan to spend that break doing very little as well. In the news—  the Americans passed health care reform tonight.Woo hoo! Expect some…

MORE UNBELIEVABLE NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Wow, what unbelieveable news we have for you in News from Nowhere. Like I have said, the world has gone crazy. Tiger Woods has become a cheating cad, Meredith Baxter has decided she prefers girls, you have party crashers at the White House, you have peace-loving Barack Obama sending in the troops, and in general…

THIS WEEKEND’S NEWS FROM NOWHERE IS REALLY ON THE BUTTON

Here once again is News from Nowhere, my semi-regular roundup of news stories and items that I didn’t get around to posting because of all the other things I have been doing. Well, Jenson Button of the Brawn GP team, pictured, has won the Formula 1 world title in Brazil, and his team also won the Constructor’s…

CREEPY NEWS FROM NOWHERE: MORE ABOUT THIS DAVE LETTERMAN EXTORTION BUSINESS

I thought I would provide another News from Nowhere post with some links to the news of what is really going on in the world. Well, the revelations are coming fast and furious in the bizarre Dave Letterman “extortion” saga. It seems the name of one of Dave’s staffer-ex-lovers has emerged. Turns out it’s Stephanie Birkitt, who folks who…

MICHAEL JACKSON NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Welcome to yet another News from Nowhere with more live continuing coverage of the death of Michael Jackson. Aren’t you fed up yet with Michael Jackson coverage?! I know I am, and a lot of these hard-news types of people are fed up too. They look at all this Jackson coverage on the news and…

MORE BIG NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Welcome to another edition of News from Nowhere. I know, I know, I should be posting about GM going bankrupt. But I don’t feel like it. Besides, I did a story last week on it, where I did a writeup about news concerning a local dealership that got the dreaded communication from GM, telling them…

REPORTING THE NEWS IN THE MIDDLE OF COLD NOWHERE

News from Nowhere is back — I am in Saskatoon again today, still covering the Curt Dagenais murder trial along with every other media organization from around here, and waiting for the jury deliberations to start. Final arguments were today, the charge to the jury starts tomorrow, and the deliberations are due to begin Wednesday….

FRIDAY THE 13TH NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Well, it is Friday the 13th, and yes, the movie of the same name is opening today. Based on the happenings today I think it’s fair to say that it would not have been too wise an idea to get out of bed today, at all. Because the news today has been grim. Well, all…

TV AND MOVIE NEWS FROM NOWHERE

This was a very big week in the world of TV and there was also some movie news to report, so I will do that in my special News from Nowhere about the entertainment industry. First off, American Idol is back! Yes, the top show on American TV is back with a new judge, but…

NEW YEAR’S NEWS FROM NOWHERE

Welcome to the first post at the CAIRNS BLOG for 2009, and if you were wondering where I was for the past few days, don’t worry. I have just been relaxing and chilling (yes, it’s freaking cold here) and have been in no mood to do much work — or writing for that matter. Don’t…
