There is a widespread belief – particularly among advocates of freedom and capitalism – that individual freedom and individual rights will spontaneously emerge if nations gradually adopt various forms of capitalism, freer markets, and/or more private economic initiatives. Yet, many socialist, fascist and communist jurisdictions have done exactly this, but nevertheless remained socialist, fascist or communist. While their economies may have become more ‘efficient,’ their people still do not enjoy individual rights, having ironically been turned into ‘slaves’ of a state-directed economic ‘efficiency.’

Additionally, there is a certain ‘literalism’ on the philosophic front, with many freedom advocates rejecting the best political alternative on the basis of some kind of philosophical impurity or inconsistency on the part of a given politician or party.

This is dangerous thinking, and can lead to unwarranted feelings of futility, frustration, and cynicism regarding political action in general. It is an affliction that most affects those on the Right, and is in part responsible for the continuing ascendancy of the Left and the erosion of our freedoms. Continue reading »

Heightened tensions in Iraq and Iran have overshadowed the conflicts that the Americans are having at home with their President once again becoming the target of Democratic terrorist sympathizers.

Congress, the Press, and many Americans have forgotten their history by condemning President Trump’s actions in Iraq and the taking out of terrorist Qassem Soleimani. Where once they lauded President Reagan for the assassination attempt on Muammar Gaddafi in 1986 and hailed President Obama as a hero for conducting the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, Trump is vilified for acting in the nation’s defence and interests in Iraq.

Professor Emeritus Salim Mansur of Western University once again reminds us of the hypocrisy of the Trump-deranged Democrats and the two-faced media by putting the latest actions in the Middle East in historical perspective.

636 – The impeachment of Donald Trump—for crimes of the Democratic Party

In the absence of any objective evidence whatever, on December 18, 2019, the Democratic Party voted to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump. In so doing, Democrats followed through on their announced intention to impeach from the very first moment of Trump’s election in 2016. Worse, House speaker Nancy Pelosi withheld the articles of impeachment from the Senate as if to emphasize that due process has no place in the world of Democrats.

Having first unsuccessfully blamed Trump’s electoral victory on Russian interference, then on false accusations of racism and other improprieties, Democrats eventually settled upon a phone call made by Trump to the president of Ukraine as the grounds for their long-intended impeachment vote.

What makes their whole impeachment process particularly laughable is that it has been a total exercise in projection: every accusation made against Trump relates to verifiable actions taken by Hillary Clinton and a host of Democrats in the past.

To add insult to injury, the mainstream media has utterly abandoned its role as the fourth estate by repeating the lies and falsehoods promoted by the Democrats and by expressing outright personal hatreds directed towards the president.

As Salim Mansur concludes on today’s broadcast, at the heart of the futile effort to implicate Trump in various conspiracies and illegal activities lies the Left’s Progressive agenda, which takes the form of socialism and communism. Thus, it is Just Right to conclude that in reality, they’re not after Trump; they’re after the American people, and Trump is just in the way.

The sweet spot of liberty | Bruce Pardy and Salim Mansur

Politics has become a war of shifting definitions with both the Conservatives and the Liberals becoming ‘progressives’ and ‘collectivists’ yet continuing to call themselves something they clearly are not.

Professor Bruce Pardy of Queen’s University, Professor Emeritus Salim Mansur of Western University and Robert Vaughan of Just Right Media try to make some sense of the confusing labels.

Rounding out the discussion is why the People’s Party of Canada failed to capture the support of Canadians in the last federal election even though they lie squarely in that “sweet spot of liberty” reserved for the individualistic, classical liberals.

Rethinking Canada—The alienation of The West

In the first of a 3-part series Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, speaks with Robert Vaughan of Just Right Media, and Salim’s Campaign Manager in the 2019 election, about the failings of Canada’s system of government.

The Western provinces and rural Canadians are once again ignored in Parliament as the Liberals under Justin Trudeau have been reelected primarily with the support of the urban voters of Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa.

Regardless of the part in power the dominance of the Laurentian elite in Canadian politics is something which dates back to the founding of our nation and has been a constant irritant to many Canadians outside of Ontario and Quebec who wish to be treated as equal partners in what is supposed to be a Federation of equal provinces.

In Part 1 Salim suggests that the debate on a triple-E Senate needs to be revisited to once and for all address the inequities built into our Westminster-style system of government.

Part 1 – The Alienation of The West
Part 2 – Conservative Party Mediocrity
Part 3 – The People’s Party Option

While Boris Johnson may not be properly grouped into that class of populist leaders like a Trump, Orbán, or Farage his recent reelection and resultant resounding majority in Parliament has captured the resentment most voters in that nation have towards the elites who have denied them the break from the EU they demanded in 2016.

Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, joins Robert Vaughan to discuss the election and how it might portend a bright future for Canada’s own populist People’s Party.
