Ever since isolated incidents of ‘coronavirus’ have begun appearing outside of China, much of the mainstream and social media alike have gone ‘coronaviral’ by needlessly spreading fear and panic about the flu-like illness. Yet, the real disease that should be feared is China’s political ideology which may have more to do with the breakout of coronavirus than the virus itself.

As our guest Salim Mansur explains, China has been identified as the world’s premier incubator of new infectious flu strains, including: the 1918-19 Spanish flu, the 1957 Asian flu, the Hong Kong flu of 1968, the Russian flu of 1997, the SARS outbreak of 2003, and most recently, the global spread of coronavirus originating in Wuhan. To Salim, this is not surprising. Having himself visited China from its coastal cities to its deepest interior, Salim has witnessed horrifying conditions unimaginable to most of us.

With entire cities of millions being shut down and quarantined, China’s actions have included rounding up, imprisoning, and even shooting its own citizens who were caught walking in the streets. Remarkably, China’s government has been praised by many Western leaders for its handling of the outbreak.

There is a tragic and outrageous irony in this. In the Western nations, the outbreak of coronavirus has been politicized so as to place blame on the Trump administration in the United States, with the mainstream media and those on the Left going so far as to call it the ‘Trump virus.’ Yet, the only justifiable ‘politicization’ of this outbreak falls squarely on China’s communist regime, and on the globalist politicians who have failed to take the appropriate measures to limit its spread.

Dr. Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University, comments on US President Donald Trump’s momentous visit to India and the positive reaction given Trump by the Indian people and that country’s leadership.

Salim notes the stark contrast between the adulation which Donald Trump received during his visit and the tawdry and juvenile coverage of the historic event made by the mainstream American media and to the clownish antics exhibited by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when he visited India in 2018.

641 – Freedom Forward – Philosophy’s indispensable role in determining the Right Direction

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 »

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.

634 – The black and white truth about lying

 Comments Off on 634 – The black and white truth about lying

Generally, when most people object to lying, they think about themselves being lied to – or lied about – and consider lying to be a moral indiscretion. They rarely see themselves as being the liar, nor do they consider how they might even unwittingly or unconsciously be lending credibility to a lie told, whatever its source or intent.

A ‘lie’ is defined as “an untrue statement made with the intent of deceiving; a falsehood; that which creates or is intended to produce a false impression.” (Funk & Wagnalls)

Note that the definition, per se, does not necessarily imply any form of criminal or immoral objective; it merely defines a lie as being a statement that does not represent the reality of a given situation or fact.

Even among the Ten Commandments there is none commanding that “Thou shalt not lie.” However, specific forms of lying are indeed implied in the eighth and ninth commandments, which command that “Thou shalt not steal,” and “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” Continue reading »

People’s Party Gatineau Media Scrum – Behind the Scenes

 Comments Off on People’s Party Gatineau Media Scrum – Behind the Scenes

On August 18th Just Right Media was part of the media scrum following the People’s Party of Canada’s veteran’s policy announcement in Gatineau, Quebec.

Marshall McLuhan was wrong – the medium is not the message – the MEDIA is the message and we present this video so our viewers can get a behind the scene’s look at how journalists through both the questions they ask and the questions they DON’T ask, attempt to shape the narrative surrounding this new party.

Not one journalist except for Just Right’s Robert Vaughan asked a question about the new platform plank although Maxime was joined by the writers of the policy at the scrum, veterans all.

Instead, the media asked questions focusing on issues they thought would be controversial, divisive, and cast the People’s Party in a negative light.

Apologies to our French-speaking countrymen but this is the English part of the scrum only. There were no questions in French dealing with the new policy instead, the French language journalists’ questions parroted those of their English colleagues.

Maxime Bernier

It should come as no surprise to our regular listeners that with Canada’s federal election only days away, Just Right Media would fully endorse Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party of Canada (PPC).

“Fighting for freedom is the most important fight that we must do and we are doing that together,” said Bernier at the PPC event held in Hamilton on September 29. “When I (created the PPC), I thought that I would be alone – but I’ll fight for what I believe. And after a month, we had more than 28 thousand founding members and now it’s a growing movement, more than a political party.”

As long as that remains the mission of the PPC, it will continue to have our support and endorsement – even after the election. It’s hard to do otherwise, given that the party’s first platform completely conforms to the principles and ideas expressed on Just Right.

Not only that, but regular Just Right contributor Salim Mansur has become a leading voice within the PPC movement, and its leader, Maxime Bernier, is the only political party leader in Canada who opposes all censorship and supports the right of Canadians to discuss any issues of concern.
