More than being a demonstrated lifesaving treatment in fighting the COVID-19 virus (SARS CoV-2), hydroxychloroquine has now become a symbol of the fundamental political divide regarding the government-mandated lockdown.

Donald Trump’s recent announcement that he is personally using hydroxychloroquine was a direct challenge to negative mainstream media narratives about the drug. It was also a direct attack against those on the Left determined to keep the COVID-19 lockdown in effect for as long as possible, no matter how many people may die or suffer in the process.

In many jurisdictions around the world, it may appear that the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown is slowly ending, but the reality is that it is incrementally being extended – indefinitely – as politicians seek to entrench their recently exercised undemocratic powers over the rest of us. Political threats to repeatedly shut down areas of the economy on the basis of future COVID-19 statistics means that the economy may never be able to recover.

Tragically, at the root of all the shutdown strategies lies a single priority: the protection of healthcare ‘systems,’ a priority placed above that of protecting the lives of the people forced to deal with those systems. When the pandemic began, ‘flattening the curve’ to prevent hospitals from being overrun was the first and only stated objective of the shutdown. Today, the continued rationale for the shutdown is anybody’s guess, as it can change by the hour, and often does. But the priority hasn’t changed even though politicians insist their motivations are based on ‘saving lives.’

By placing the public spotlight on his use of hydroxychloroquine, Trump boldly demonstrated how ‘saving lives’ is not the goal of the mainstream media or the Left. Once again, Trump brilliantly did what was Just Right: he exposed the hypocrisy of those who claim to be motivated by ‘saving lives’ while simultaneously opposed to the use of that which is life-saving.

Who can we believe? The growing gap between projected cases of COVID-19 in statistical models and the contrary evidence being revealed by daily accumulating data is becoming impossible to ignore.

Similarly, the permanent gap between Left and Right has also become impossible to ignore. Those on the Left want the shutdown to continue indefinitely, since that serves their communist and fascist ideologies of state control, prohibition, and censorship. The COVID-19 shutdown is a Leftist’s wildest dream come true. Those on the Right insist that the shutdowns be ended, claiming that there is no longer a need to do so in light of the fact that all of the fears originally justifying them are no longer an issue.

But more and more, the COVID-19 crisis is looking like a déjà vu of the climate change crisis, the United Nations-led conspiracy to destroy capitalism on a global scale.

Indeed, the very same propaganda tactics and terminology for fighting climate change are now being used for fighting the coronavirus. For example, what were once ‘climate change deniers’ are now ‘coronavirus deniers.’ Continue reading »

644 – Gone coronaviral—The infectious politics of spreading fear and panic

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.

Namaste Trump – Salim Mansur

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

 Comments Off on 636 – The impeachment of Donald Trump—for crimes of the Democratic Party
Jan 092020
 


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 »
