Trump oath

In keeping with past Inauguration addresses made by American presidents, Donald Trump‘s Inauguration Address last Friday turned out to be very presidential indeed.

Criticized as being a “dark speech” the likes of which has never been heard before, it would be more accurate to suggest that Trump’s Inaugural Address followed a tradition that has been a presidential practice since the days of John Adams, the second president of the United States.

The parallels are striking and are part of the conversation on today’s Just Right, along with our point-by-point analysis of some key essentials in Trump’s address. Could Donald Trump’s address be resurrecting the symbolic “ghost” of John Adams?

“A nation exists to serve its citizens,” Trump declared, in stark contrast to the opposing philosophy that has been running the White House since the days of John F Kennedy.

Under Trump’s “America first” agenda, is “Buy American” an un-American slogan? Can trade restrictions and import/export taxes possibly benefit the general welfare, or are they simply a continuation of crony politics that benefit the few at the expense of the many? Continue reading »

capitalism

FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY – FOR THE LOVE OF LIFE: “Tyranny of the rich?” That’s rich! But it’s a common belief among those who have a limited understanding (or outright dislike) of capitalism and what that word truly represents.

“Capitalism is slavery,” is another epistemological contradiction that is often heard in the blind rage against the singular economic system that is the very opposite of slavery.

Or maybe you’ve heard these before: “Capitalists prey on the poor” or “The love of money is the root of all evil.”

These are, of course, demonstrable falsehoods. Yet many accept these bromides as truths. To be able to counter these tragic misunderstandings (or to discover sinister intentions), one must be intellectually and morally armed against them.

On today’s Just Right, you’ll hear our response to these and many more similar bromides that lead to tragic outcomes when practiced as truths. Continue reading »

Angry Mob

MAJORITY FOOLS: Ontario voters and taxpayers have been played for fools when promised that Kathleen Wynne’s electoral financing reform would eliminate influence peddling on the part of her Liberal Party.

But Wynne has delivered on her promise. In the name of supposedly eliminating assumed “corruption” evidenced by $1000+ voluntary political contributions paid to the Liberal Party to attend some party events, the problem has now been solved. Effective January 1 of this year, you no longer have to be a Liberal supporter to contribute your cash to the Liberal Party. In fact, everyone in Ontario must now do so.

If you live in Ontario, you are now being forced to support the Liberal Party – and three others – with your tax dollars, even if you strongly disagree with all of their policies.

Thanks to Bill 2 (formerly Bill 201), every Ontario taxpayer has now been forced to contribute – for the first time ever – directly to the following political parties, and retroactively in 2016: Continue reading »

Gulliver

GULLIVER’S TRAVAILS

U.S. president-elect Donald Trump has vowed to “make America great again.” Just what does “greatness” look like? How will we know if he succeeds or fails?

On this, Thanksgiving Day in America, it is certainly a “great” day to reflect on just what it is that makes America “great.”

All nations have the potential to be “great” nations, but most unfortunately choose to become like the Lilliputians in the classic Gulliver’s Travels, dedicated to bringing greatness down to their level. Has the United States become a victim of this trend, or will it always rise above the Lilliputians?

Joining us for a second round of post-U.S. election discussion on today’s Just Right are Western University’s Associate Professor of Political Science Salim Mansur, and John Thompson of the Strategic Intelligence Group. Together, the picture they paint of what makes a “great” country looks something like this: Continue reading »

Make American Great Again

TRUMP TOWERS – above his critics.

“I never doubted that Trump would win,” declares Western University’s Associate Professor of Political Science Salim Mansur, who has been accurately following, describing, and predicting the ascent of Donald Trump on Just Right since Trump first appeared on the GOP stage.

“The media establishment cannot be trusted with the truth,” adds John Thompson of the Strategic Intelligence Group, who likewise has been accurately following, describing, and predicting the destruction wrought by post-modernist thinking during his past appearances on Just Right.

Now back on the show together for the first time since the US election, our two powerhouse guests tell it like it is, like it was, and how it likely will be, given the reality of the situation. Tragically, reality runs entirely counter to the narrative offered by the so-called establishment media, which has become the biggest loser in the U.S. presidential election – an election which they should have reported, not attempted to control.

Standing Alone

WHY HAS FREEDOM BEEN “LEFT-RIGHT” OUT? With Donald Trump now the U.S. president-elect, don’t expect the Trump haters to let up on their hatreds.

Unable to articulate any objective reasons for hating Trump, unwilling to accept defeat with the grace they demanded of Trump, unable to understand the forces that drive political realities, completely ignorant of Trump’s platform and agenda (which we covered in detail on last week’s show) Trump’s critics resort to the use of labels they also do not understand. Ironically, the labels they use apply to themselves: “racist” “sexist” “nazi” “fascist” and the usual array of collectivist words and constant expletives used to attack the messenger in an attempt to hide a truth that they cannot defeat.

The “Trump Derangement Syndrome” as we have called it on previous broadcasts of Just Right, continues unabated as a self-inflicted handicap on the part of its sufferers. Ironically, the hatred generated by the syndrome is not really directed at Donald Trump himself. It is directed at what has been broadly – and mistakenly – called the “right”.

This is a truth we have learned from personal experience and which continues to be demonstrated to us daily. Given that the name of our freedom-oriented weekly radio show is called “Just Right,” that’s pretty much all it takes for us to be irrationally attacked in the very same way as is Donald Trump. Just check out past posts made by such critics on our Facebook page for the abundance of evidence. One thing these critics will never offer is an objective reason for their hatreds. Continue reading »
