It is often said that “truth is the first casualty of war.” But it may be more accurate to say that war is a deadly consequence of truth’s absence.

Our guest Salim Mansur seems to confirm this latter perspective. In citing the crisis in Ukraine, he notes that “we are in the midst of the fog of war” a fog caused by the false view of Russia and Ukraine promoted in the fake news media.

It is difficult to overstate or exaggerate the absence of truth in the state-funded ‘mainstream’ media about what is happening in Ukraine today.

Indeed, truth’s absence is that media’s ‘elephant in the room.’ From viral pandemics to climate change, to the police action against the Ottawa Freedom Convoy, to the stolen American election, to Trudeau’s tyranny, to mandated lockdowns and injections, and now to the events in Ukraine, every state media account presents an intentionally false narrative.

War in Ukraine | Putin’s defense against globalism and the Great Reset

Any student of history knows that when tanks start crossing borders we are witnessing not the opening move on the chessboard but only one in a long sequence of moves that have reached the point we normally call war. The current conflict in Ukraine is no exception to this.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 most former Warsaw Pact countries rejected communism and the ruling elites of Moscow. They embraced their status as independent nation-states. Ironically, since that time, most Western countries have moved towards a borderless world of international socialism led by a cabal of elites in Washington, Brussels, and Davos.

The past two decades have seen Ukraine used by oligarchs and the corrupt American administrations of Clinton and Obama as their own little playground for money laundering and personal financial gain at the expense of the innocent civilians of that country. It is against this backdrop of foreign interference into the internal politics of Ukraine, coupled with the dangerous push to expand NATO alliances into the backyard of Moscow we enter this phase of what is, when taken in the broader context of history, a worldwide ideological conflict of globalism versus nationalism.

We can add to this volatile mix globalist toadies like Justin Trudeau and Canada’s Deputy Prime Minster Christia Freeland honking the horn of the Great Reset juggernaut calling the world to arms against Russia, which, as Professor Mansur explains, is one of the few remaining European nations protecting itself from the advancing New World Order.

746 – Word War Spree—fascists versus ‘freedom’

 Comments Off on 746 – Word War Spree—fascists versus ‘freedom’

The entire ‘Covid’ narrative is crumbling and the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy in Ottawa has sped that process exponentially. Every lie, every sinister intentional action to destroy the lives, health and welfare of citizens everywhere, will soon become common knowledge as more and more people waken to their political reality.

This terrifies the likes of Justin Trudeau, whose fascist policies have created the very tyranny against which Canadians are protesting. He has been justifying his fascism based on a Covid narrative whose falsity is becoming more self-evident with each passing day.

Censorship and propaganda have been governments’ primary weapon in an ‘information war’ that has been extraordinarily effective, thanks to the ‘fake-news’ media acting as a government-paid propagandist for the state.

The ‘info war’ has now escalated into an all-out ‘word war’ spree. At the heart of the conflict is the word ‘freedom’ itself, a concept that the Left cannot tolerate or defeat. That’s because the word ‘freedom,’ above all, means freedom from coercion, which happens to be another way of saying freedom from the Left.

Individualism (on the Right) operates on the principles of freedom and consent. Collectivism (on the Left) operates on the principles of control and coercion. Since individualism is moral while collectivism is immoral, it should come as no surprise that the Left is doing everything possible to denigrate the concept of freedom by morally equating it with the Left’s own ideals of coercion and violence.

The Left’s attack on the concept of freedom is mirrored in its similar attack on the concept of the political ‘Right’ – by associating it with fascism (which is explicitly Left) – and by inventing meaningless terms like ‘alt-right,’ or ‘extreme right wing.’

To win the war for freedom it must be understood that there are no ‘degrees’ or variants of freedom. It’s just freedom for the same reason that what’s right is Just Right.

Trucker’s Freedom Convoy 2022 unmasks Canada’s freedom delusion | Salim Mansur

The Truckers Freedom Convoy of the past two weeks has lifted the veil, or the mask, on just how fundamentally flawed Canada is and always was. Amid the blaring of truck horns cries of “mandate freedom” are echoing down Wellington Street in Ottawa. Unfortunately, Parliamentarians are deaf to these pleas and if one knows anything of Canadian history, as does our guest Professor Salim Mansur, Parliamentarians have never had freedom on their agenda.

If one understands Canada’s Constitution and is familiar with its laws and practices then one realizes that Canada is not, nor was it ever, a nation of individual rights and “We The People”, rather, Canada was always a nation of We The Parliament, or We The State.

In the British tradition, Canada’s Parliament is supreme. It can, and often does, pass laws that violate the individual rights of its citizens. “Peace, order, and good government” is the mantra of Parliament used by Conservatives and Liberals alike. It is the motive for governance enshrined in Canada’s Constitution (Sect. 91). Contrast this to the founding motivation for the American revolution and the structure of its government—individual rights. We The People, the first words of the U.S. Constitution, set the USA apart from every other nation on Earth and which still, to this day, is the only country founded on the principle that individual rights lie outside of government and that the primary role of government is to protect those rights.

Canadians often turn to the Canadian Bill of Rights (1960) or to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982) as assurance that their individual rights are protected in law. In Canada, however, our individual rights lie not outside of our laws to be protected by the government, they lie inside of government, are limited by the government, and are often violated by the government.

The Bill of Rights is simply a federal statute applying to the federal government which has historically been ignored by the courts. The Charter is a document where peoples’ rights are bracketed by two sections (1 and 33) which, in effect, give power to the Parliament to override any individual right at its discretion.

As Professor Mansur expounds in this discussion, there are no federal parties in Parliament whose raison d’être is to defend the rights of Canadians. The Conservative Party often thought to be the party on the side of individual rights is in fact, as Professor Mansur makes clear, in Parliament to conserve the institutions of Parliament and its credo of “peace, order, and good government.”

“The Conservative Party has been conserving the formulation of the 1867 Act that is peace, order, and good government. (It) is not a party of freedom-loving people. They are not a party that has put the freedom issue at the top of the political agenda.”

A more robust understanding of Canada’s Constitution and how Canada’s Parliament works should reveal to Canadians that they live at the privilege of Cabinet. Their individual rights are an after-thought to the structure of Canadian governance and not a fundamental focus of legislation.

It remains to be seen in this chaotic and tumultuous time whether Canada will ever evolve from a nation of We The State and peace, order, and good governance to a nation of We The People and life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The Truckers’ Freedom Convoy may just be the spark that ignites the freedom revolution that Canada so desperately needs.

As the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy in Ottawa continues to make international waves, it has been powerfully instrumental in exposing the true nature of Canada’s crisis to the world.

“Canada is a broken country,” laments our guest Salim Mansur, “ – broken politically, broken economically, broken morally, spiritually. The idea that we have held for so long, with such conviction – that Canada is a free country, that our constitution provides for the defense and protection of the freedom of Canadians – is basically a hoax.”

Salim argues that Canadians have been living through a form of ‘peace, order, and good government,’ one of the ‘principles’ cited by Canadian politicians as justification for their undemocratic actions. Unfortunately, warns Salim, ‘peace, order, and good government’ is an authoritarian formula, not a formula for individual freedom.

“There is no freedom in Canada. What we have is a rule by an elite that imposes upon Canada their whim, their caprice, and their direction.”

Sadly, Salim is Just Right, and we can thank the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy for shining its light on this inconvenient truth.

Truckers For Freedom Convoy 2022 | Salim Mansur

Canada is without a doubt a socialist country where the people have over many decades elected far-Left governments. These governments, whether labelled Liberal or Conservative, have driven the nation to the brink of full-fledged communism where individual rights have taken a back seat to the machinations of tyrannical and corrupt “leaders.”

The actions of the Canadian government during the past two years have given Canadians second thoughts about the direction their country has been headed and the freedom convoy of truckers stands as a symbol of that hesitancy.

The Freedom Convoy has shown that Canadians have a breaking point, a limit beyond which even they do not want to pass. Much like the strike in Gdansk, Poland of August 1980 with its slogan of Solidarność (Solidarity) eventually led to the collapse of the Soviet Union millions of Canadians are hopeful that the truckers’ rally in Ottawa will lead to major reforms in Canada and the ousting of their embarrassment of a “leader” Justin Trudeau.

To discuss the ramifications of the rally we are joined by Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus of political science at Western University.

Canada’s ‘fake news’ media has transformed itself from being the ‘mainstream’ to being the ‘mean-stream’ media. Even before the Truckers for Freedom convoy arrived in Ottawa last weekend, the ‘mean stream’ of misleading and false accusations made against them have offered the world first-hand evidence of the media’s hatred and intolerance towards peaceful freedom-loving Canadians.

Indeed, the sheer intolerance and disrespect towards those who have a different opinion exhibited by Leftist ‘pro-vaxxers’ stands in stark contrast to those labeled ‘anti-vaxxers’ or some variant of a right-wing pejorative. The latter exhibit no animosity whatever towards the former, and would never deprive them of their right to choose.

The Left, on the other hand, would deny the ‘unvaxxed’ health care, freedom of association, freedom of speech, the freedom to work, and certainly the freedom to remain injection free. They would segregate them entirely from the rest of those who submit to political mandates.

Trudeau’s unconscionable statements expressing intolerance for the ‘unvaccinated’ and the ‘unacceptability’ of certain political opinions have been met with revulsion and disgust on the part of those who value individual freedom.

Yet his fascist intolerance has also been met with an increased popularity in the polls, as has been the case with similarly intolerant and fascist provincial premiers. Thanks to the ‘mean-stream’ media, a majority of Canadians remain isolated from the truth about the lockdowns and ‘vaccines’ that are no such thing.

As inspiring, positive, and re-assuring as the world record-breaking event in Ottawa has been for those on (and in) the Right, Justin Trudeau and his paid-for ‘mean-stream’ media have been doing everything possible to portray the event as some kind of racist-fascist plot to overthrow the country. We can expect more of the same propaganda to come.

So far, it looks as if the Truckers for Freedom have done everything Just Right; now comes the hard part.
