In a Sept 1 Open Letter to Prime Minister Trudeau, a group of prominent Canadian media interests called for the establishment of nothing less than a police state. “We are asking police forces to take several immediate steps… to combat abuse of journalists and all victims of online hate and harassment,” they chimed.

Among signatories to the request are the National Post, the Globe & Mail, Canadian Association of Broadcasters, the Canadian Association of Journalists, the Winnipeg Free Press, Toronto Star, TV Ontario, Quebecor, Postmedia, OMNI News, La Presse, City News, and many others.

Citing a global problem “in relation to the increasing and alarming online hate and harassment targeting journalists and journalism as a profession,” the letter called for an abandonment of investigating “individual complaints.” Instead, it called for a system allowing the media itself to report “patterns” that identify “connections of extremist groups” by means of “similar language, the language commonly used by domestic extremist groups.”

Lacking any specifics or examples, the letter is evidence of an inability to counter alternative narratives that demonstrate how inaccurate and misleading their own news coverage has been. The deafening silence from the state-sponsored media in response to Joe Biden’s Sept 1 speech served as an ironic backdrop to the request from a media that can no longer be trusted to report the news.

As accumulating data and verifiable narratives continue to show how the “fake news media” earned its reputation, the natural resentment and disgust with fake news is now being experienced as “online hate and harassment.” But instead of countering alternative narratives with their own, the media fascists have opted for state control of the competition.

Of course, the right thing to always do is to ensure an exchange of ideas and perspectives in an open forum free of any censorship. Through such exchanges – or from a refusal to participate in them – one can best discover and learn to trust those media sources that consistently prove to be Just Right in their search for the truth.

771 – It’s biblical—God, politics, and morality

It has long been argued that totalitarian nations and tyrannies are a consequence of the “atheistic” philosophies under which they are ruled. However, this is a serious error. It is based on the mistaken view that “atheism” is some kind of philosophy or doctrine, as is the case with theism. But this is not so.

Consider that, unlike the word “theist” which in a proper context identifies what a person is, “atheist” is a negative concept that defines a person in terms of what he is not. In no way can it be reasonably justified on these grounds to conclude that atheists have some kind of “atheist belief system” or philosophy.

In fact, in philosophical and moral terms “atheism” isn’t even a thing. However, tyranny is. That tyrannies may be “atheistic” is mere association; it is not cause and effect. Totalitarian regimes and tyrannies are caused by collectivist ideologies invariably supported by Leftist theists and atheists alike. Similarly, theists and atheists on the Right support freedom and justice.

In the moral and political gulf between freedom and tyranny, the only polarity that matters is the one that contrasts the values of the Left (collectivism) with those of the Right (individualism).

Thus it is unfortunate that some on the “religious right” have been increasingly disparaging atheists, as if atheism is somehow a causal factor behind the current tyranny. In atheism, theists perceive an absence of morality rather than recognizing the presence of alternative moralities grounded on different principles.

On the one hand are those who cannot conceive of morality without faith in a God and afterlife, while on the other there are those who cannot conceive of morality based on anything but reason exercised within a finite limited lifetime.

Fortunately, experience has demonstrated that these metaphysically opposing views do not preclude a shared morality. Whether theist or atheist, what counts in politics is which side of political polarity holds power – Left or Right. Consequently, those on the side of freedom will of necessity eventually gravitate towards those moral alliances held together in an orbit circling the political polarity that is Just Right.

770 – Witness—to the Freedom Convoy | Andrew Lawton

As an eye-witness to Canada’s infamous Ottawa Freedom Convoy last winter, our guest Andrew Lawton can count himself among the front-line warriors in an Information War that has killed and injured as many people as any war could.

Andrew’s experience has been published in his book: The Freedom Convoy – The Inside Story Of Three Weeks That Shook The World (Sutherland House, 2022). As a first-hand account of what happened during the Freedom Convoy’s presence in Ottawa, this book stands in stark contrast to the official narrative and the still-so-called mainstream media.

Notably, the Freedom Convoy was not an organized event in the common understanding of that term. It was entirely organic, with no single leader, group, or organization having masterminded what proved to be among the most peaceful protest rallies in history.

It was perhaps this very lack of a centralized authority that has made it so difficult for Trudeau’s fascist government to create a false narrative applicable to all of the participants. After all, the single issue that united them was the very issue his government did not want to face – his government’s tyranny justified by Covid lies.

The two sides in this information war do not merely disagree. Indeed, officialdom and the mainstream mediocre insist that no debates or disagreements even be allowed, preferring outright censorship, false reports, and physically attacking the messengers rather than offer any justifications for their mandates and proclamations.

The lesson to be learned from the Freedom Convoy is universal. Tyrants fear truth above all. They know that once exposed to the truth, each individual can decide on his own which side is telling the lies, and which side has been Just Right all along.

The Freedom Convoy | Andrew Lawton

The Trucker’s Freedom Convoy was a pivotal moment in Canadian history and one which will be studied for many years to come.

Predictably, the dependent press (legacy media outlets in the direct pay of the Liberal government) were notorious for their mishandling of the event. Their feeble and often amateurish attacks meant to vilify the protesters by means of deception and outright falsehoods were thwarted by the coverage of the rally by honest journalists such as Andrew Lawton of True North.

In order to set the record straight for the sake of posterity, Andrew published The Freedom Convoy—The inside story of three weeks that shook the world (Sutherland House). The book quickly became a best seller. In it, Andrew details how the rally was nothing like that depicted by both the dependent press and the politicians in government.

Andrew also reveals the inner workings of the organization that started the Convoy although “organization” is a term used loosely as it soon became apparent that the rally was quickly evolving into a massive grassroots movement spanning the country and involving several thousands of protesters.

Fueled by disgust and even rage over the tyrannical measures the Trudeau/Singh government had inflicted on them during the preceding two years Canadians across the country supported the truckers in numbers never seen before in this country. The response was noticed all over the world with similar convoys starting up in Europe, Australia, and the United States.

Robert Vaughan sat down with Andrew to discuss his inside knowledge of the freedom convoy and the events of those three weeks that shook the world.

769 – Hardwired to reality—definitions and gender

 Comments Off on 769 – Hardwired to reality—definitions and gender

There may be a variety of reasons why so many people are unable or unwilling to answer the question: “What is a Woman?” But after reviewing Matt Walsh’s documentary of the same name, one might be left with the impression that we are on the brink of civilization’s collapse.

The degree of confusion, fear, terror, hostility, evasion, and even indifference that was encountered at the mere asking of a simple definition tells a story far greater than any particular specific word in question. Worse, among the few who did offer their definition of “woman,” the answers were subjective and incorrect.

Of all the words in the English language, one would think that the word “woman” is about as innocuous as it gets. But not so. What by definition and by every rule of language is a binary concept distinguishing male from female has become a political and epistemological battleground on which concepts are being destroyed along with the ability to communicate.

However, reality exists, and every functioning human mind is “hardwired” to that reality, a connection that persists even in the attempt to deny or avoid it. The creation of definitions that do not correspond to reality or reason has been the primary political weapon of the so-called “trans-gender” community. Theirs is a misguided campaign against the reality that men are men and women are women and that that distinction is always a binary one. Continue reading »

763 – The fallacy of gun control

“As we see gun violence continue to rise, it is our duty to keep taking action. We decided to tackle this issue at a national level. And so today, we’re moving forward. We’re introducing legislation to implement a national freeze on handgun ownership. It will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer, or import handguns anywhere in Canada.”Justin Trudeau – 2022

“This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun control. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.”
Adolf Hitler – 1935

It is often said that “we never learn from history” but this cannot be said when it comes to the issue of gun control. Perhaps it is more accurate to suggest that we do learn from history, but that our politicians simply refuse to apply its lessons in a way that is beneficial to the general welfare.

We have long known that the road to tyranny always starts with the disarming of the general population, so, clearly, that lesson has been learned: “The one thing that unites every tyrant is that they all love gun control,” observed criminal attorney and outspoken political commentator Robert Barnes. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re Hitler, Stalin, Mao, any of them – they all love gun control.”

Politicians who insist that gun control makes the public at large safer are spreading false information, because the opposite is true and history demonstrates this as well. Continue reading »

760 – Projecting a state of freedom | Derek Proulx

 Comments Off on 760 – Projecting a state of freedom | Derek Proulx

“Live free or die” is the state motto of New Hampshire, and our guest Derek Proulx, a volunteer with the Free State Project elaborates: “…for death is not the worst of evils – slavery is.”

The strategy behind the project depends upon attracting a significant number of liberty-minded activists to a single state, one with a low enough population to effectively enable them to lobby and influence the local culture so as to elect more freedom-oriented political representatives to local governments.

Remarkably, there are other similar projects springing up, such as one now underway in Alberta involving the separation of that province from the rest of Canada. Its proponents argue that Alberta must be freed from the tyranny and “abuse” of the federal government.

But why these strategies? It appears the realization that freedom-loving people are a minority is causing many of them to create a refuge from the submissive majority. The success of their efforts is being measured against how well a particular ‘free state’ can maintain its independence and freedom segregated from the majority culture.

In the short run, this strategy can be judged successful but the greater challenge – and long-term danger – still remains. A free state cannot long co-exist next to a tyrannical state, let alone within one, as is the case with provinces and states within their republics or confederations. History and logic both demonstrate that the more dominant state will inevitably rule the smaller.

Thus the necessity of inculcating a philosophy and deep understanding of the nature of individual freedom remains an eternal task, one that must be directed beyond the confines of a segregated jurisdiction
. Establishing a universal awareness and appreciation of freedom’s profound virtue and benefits is a cultural pre-requisite towards establishing any free state – or free nation – or free world – in a manner that’s Just Right.
