Fake-News-Frederick-Burr-Opper

Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau’s Liberal government has announced a sinister plan to curb ‘fake news,’ political ‘misinformation,’ and ‘foreign influence’ in Canada’s elections.

Supporters of the Trudeau Plan, like the Globe and Mail’s ‘disinformation expert’ Marcus Kolga, actually believe that it does not go far enough, and ‘divisive’ ideas and discussions like those about ‘anti-immigration and anti-globalism’ should be even further curbed on social media.

All of this is reprehensible, and should be loudly condemned. We have one clear message for Trudeau and his fake supporters: “So fake off already – and get real!”

False news reports have been with us since the news itself. But as we learn on today’s broadcast, the current context of the term ‘fake news’ was first introduced on October 13, 2016 in an Obama speech calling for a campaign to “curate information in the wild west media environment.” Continue reading »

Video – The multicultural lie – Salim Mansur

“All cultures are not equal. Never have been.

“The cultures of the Taliban, the cultures of the Bedouin and nomads of North Africa or Sahara or Arabian desert, the culture that accepts female genital mutilation or promotes polygamy is not a culture that is equal to a culture that is based upon the rights of individuals, freedom, the culture that has landed man on the moon, that has decoded the DNA.”

Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus of Western University, takes us on a trip through Canadian history to show how Canada has gone from being a nation founded on the uniquely Western values of individual rights and freedom to a country without a “core identity” as Justin Trudeau has so proudly crowed.

Salim begins at the beginning with the BNA Act, proceeds to the Bilingualism and Bicultural Commission of 1967, the Air India bombing of 1985, the ethnic silos in our major cities, and ends with the impending appeasement of the Muslim community as they come to this country by the tens of thousands demanding that Canada accommodate their backward culture.

The result is a country made up not of individuals but of groups and ethnic tribes competing for political influence and power. A country of rudderless political parties willing to sell the country’s soul to get the favour of hyphenated Canadians and, most importantly, their votes. The worst culprit has been the Liberal Party of Canada beginning with Pierre Trudeau and coming full circle with his son, Justin.

Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada have accelerated Canada’s decline as a once-proud country to become, as Trudeau has claimed, the first “post-national state.” In his rush to follow in his father’s footsteps he has subjected us to increased acts of terrorism, a complete disregard for immigration laws as evidenced by those crossing the border illegally and being met with open-arms, and a cultural shift away from individual freedom and towards ethnic conflict and Sharia.

California is a state in crisis, mostly self-imposed. Given its government’s Leftist mindset, the crisis is bound to deepen.

As if oblivious to the human excrement on the streets, the needles littering every block, and much more, California has focused instead on legislating everything from ‘straw bans’ to passing laws about the kinds of beverages restaurants must offer their customers. Because water prices are regulated by the state, the state is now rationing water, with threats of $1000/day fines for those households exceeding water usage of 55 gallons per day.

To ‘fix’ the California state-burdened economy, the state legislature is forcing an increase in the number of female directors on state corporate boards, arguing that this will ‘boost’ the economy as well. The forced sexual discrimination is accompanied with all the usual threats of fines and imprisonment for those who do not comply.

With this kind of thinking going on in government, small wonder that many have become hopelessly cynical about California’s future. Podcaster Bill Whittle has proposed that “the way to fix California is to take the liberal’s positions to their ultimate conclusions.” Danielle and Robert describe those conclusions as a bullet – “the bullet at the end of the gun that is government.” Continue reading »

collectivism vs individual freedom

To fully comprehend that the political Left and Right are polar opposites is also to understand that the two completely opposite ideologies cannot co-exist.

This represents a great frustration to supporters of both the “liberal left” and of the “conservative right.”

Those on the “left” find themselves forced to compromise with the idea that at least “some capitalism” (on the Right) is necessary, for without it, there is little to no wealth for socialists to “re-distribute.” Those on the “right” find themselves forced to compromise with the notion that at least “some socialism” (on the Left) is necessary, for without it, the elderly, sick, and poor would be unable to survive.

Both camps share a common error. To the extent that each is sincere in its desire to address its concerns as stated (which is another matter entirely), the road to both ends (prosperity, security) has been clearly demonstrated to be Right: the environment of freedom and capitalism.

Justin Trudeau in the arms of Fidel Castro

With his father Pierre, it was Trudeaumania. With Justin, it’s more like Trudeaumaniac. On the heels of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro‘s death, Canada’s Prime Minister made that extra effort to show the world that he is in serious need of a reality check. Like father, like son?

From the implications of Justin Trudeau’s admiration for dictatorships and dictators, to his penchant for “proportional representation,” these are signals that should alarm any freedom-minded nations and individuals.

Here is the statement by the Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, on the death of former Cuban President Fidel Castro issued from Antananarivo, Madagascar, November 26, 2016:

It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.

“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation. Continue reading »

Justin Trudeau

In his September 20 address to the United Nations General Assembly, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seemed perversely fixated on something he called “diversity.”

As Canada’s representative before the U.N., the picture he painted of his country was not a flattering one. In Canada, explained Trudeau, people his own age “find it tough to make ends meet, even when working full time.

“Young Canadians,” he continued, “told me they couldn’t get a job because they don’t have work experience, and they don’t have work experience because they don’t have a job.”

Then as if describing some uncivilized corner of the world, Trudeau announced that “Women and girls still face inequality in the workplace and violence – just because they are women – even in a progressive country like Canada.” Just for good measure, Trudeau made a point of mentioning “the shamefully continuing marginalization of Canada’s indigenous peoples.”

With the balance of his message focused on opening Canada’s doors to the world’s refugees Trudeau then turned his attention to the “anxiety” caused by his government’s ‘diversity’ policies. “Our leaders are faced with citizens’ anxiety.” In order to allay the anxiety “we need to create economic growth that is broadly shared.

Are some people happy to be sad? There appears to be much evidence that this is so. Sadly, misery loves company.

Sadder still, today’s political trend is one that will soon provide more company for misery. Misery also loves the left.

The political pursuit of misery is a reality and comes in many forms. Misery is delivered with the fulfilled promises of socialism, communism, fascism, progressivism, theocracy, anarchy, fighting climate change, and other something-for-nothing fantasies sold as political ideals.

Of course, what’s really being pursued by those doing the ‘pursuing’ is power; misery is merely the price suffered by the body politic for that pursuit.

The trail of sadness left in the wake of these false ideologies permeates the cultures and the minds of the individuals who both willingly and unwillingly become its victims. From hope to hopelessness, from meaningful purpose to meaninglessness, and from prosperity to mere subsistence and existence, the direction of our current political trends is not even denied by those who advocate them.
