Truth Always Prevails

Author Ulpian Fulwell wrote, “Truth in the end shall prevail.”  I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) believe that. The problem is, what is truth?  There are those who say truth is ever changing, never static or absolute, and what we consider to be truth today may be proven a lie tomorrow. There are those who claim that at least some truth is absolute truth, or some truths are universal and unalterable. I think both are true depending on the truth, but it can be confusing. For me personally, I trust my heart. If it feels true, I accept that. If it feels false, I accept that too. In other words, I follow my intuition.

Author Llewellyn Rockwell once wrote, “We like to imagine that in history, truth will prevail through sheer persuasive power. Sadly, this is not the case. Truth needs champions …” Truth does need champions (sometimes referred to as ‘truthers’) as we humans are easily manipulated, programmed and mind controlled.  Joseph Goebbels, a German Nazi politician who became Reich Minister of Propaganda, once said:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

That is a frightening thought. Could this be happening? Are truths being told really lies? For this post, when I speak of truth, I am referring to the ever changing “truths” told to us by our politicians, the mainstream media (MSM) and health officials. Let’s start with politicians.

Canada’s Parliament drops investigation into woman who stood on War Memorial tomb, a committee investigation into a highly publicized incident of a woman who allegedly climbed atop the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier during the Freedom Convoy protests in Ottawa. Funny how no reason was provided for discontinuing the committee hearings. Was the story a lie? Was it an attempt to discredit the protesters? That’s my guess. Trudeau’s national security adviser says Freedom Convoy planned to ‘overthrow the government’, another lie since the Freedom Convoy’s spokesperson stated on Fox News that “We want to get rid of the vaccine mandates and the (vaccine) passports. And that passport, that’s the really concerning one” (see Independent). Even MSM’s, The Globe and Mail says, Trudeau and Ford’s use of emergency legislation was pure show business. Actress Felicity Kendal says, “There is one sure way of telling when politicians aren’t telling the truth – their lips move.” That says it all.

What about the health officials? Are they telling truths? Alberta Health admits they manipulated ICU numbers. The CDC admits COVID-19 isn’t a threat to the vast majority of people. CDC Scientists admit they did manipulate study data to show the Covid-19 Vaccines are safe for Pregnant Women. This was an obvious attempt to mislead as researchers discover 91% of pregnancies resulted in miscarriage following Covid-19 Vaccination. Health Officials Admit COVID Numbers Were Inflated As They Cover Up Vaccine Injuries, and a Fired ER Doctor Tells RFK, Jr. ‘We Just Bowed Down’ Instead of Practicing Science. A Nurse claims Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s COVID-19 vaccination was faked, points out red flags. Watch her video. It seems we are being deceived by health officials.

Even MSM, especially Canada’s National Broadcaster,  admit to lying. MSM’s Toronto Sun says More falsehoods about the convoy are now being retracted. CBC issues second retraction on their convoy coverage, retracting the story by the CBC that foreigners—the Russians—had played a major role in the Freedom Convoy protest, and that the Convoy protest received hundreds of donations that appeared to be from abroad. Both stories were blatant lies. Here are 5 Ways The Establishment—aka MSM—Tried To Rewrite The History Of Freedom Convoy 2022. The MSM protects politicians as Canadian Media Cover-Up International Condemnation Of Justin Trudeau. Regarding the alleged pandemic, the CBC apologizes for using fake patients and training facility in COVID-19 story, another lie. The CBC forced to pay $1.95 million in libel case as court finds it “failed in its duty to be fair, balanced and responsible,” as reported by the CBC. This explains why CBC viewership hits record lows as subsidies hit record highs, The CBC’s ad revenue problem continues, and why the CBC wants to know why young people aren’t watching their programs. People are even leaving as CBC producer quits, slams woke broadcaster for failing to cover issues important to Canadians, and Tara Henley explains, Why I quit the CBC in the National Post. We see this in other companies as a Former Global News employee Anita Krishna speaks out about COVID-19 narrative. Yet, Canada’s government is pouring money into the CBC as Liberals move to ‘modernize’ CBC, making public broadcaster less reliant on advertising, plus  CBC salaries include 125 senior directors earning up to $186,000 each. Something is wrong with this picture when truths are not being reported!

It’s interesting how the Covid narrative disappeared almost overnight when Russia entered the Ukraine. Now the MSM narrative is “Putin is evil,” and it’s terrible what he’s doing in the Ukraine, but be wary of what you’re being shown and told by the MSM. Powerful deep narratives control us. We’re shown something one way, when there is usually something much deeper going on behind the scenes, intentionally hidden from us. There is a reason for everything media says and shows. There are many countries experiencing worse things than the Ukraine, but we’re not being told about them. We are only shown what they want us to see, and it’s often faked. We are only told what they want us to hear. Everything is designed to control and manipulate us. There are those who think I talk craziness, so consider this.  MSM says Russia’s wild theories about secret bio-labs and ‘crisis actors’ in Ukraine are crafted to appeal to US conspiracists, experts say, yet the U.S. Confirms there are Biolabs In Ukraine. Listen to what Tucker Carlson says in the video  The Pentagon is lying about biolabs in Ukraine. Only one of these narratives are true.

There are worse things occurring in the African country of Yemen, as opposed to the Ukraine. According to Countries Currently At War 2022, the Yemeni Civil War began in September 2014 and continues today. Saudi Arabia intervened in the conflict and there have been more than 140,000 fatalities since the start of the war, including nearly 20,000 in 2020 alone. A great number of these are children. According to 10 Countries Facing Humanitarian Crises in 2020, Venezuelans and 9 others need humanitarian assistance right now. Why aren’t we hearing about these on the MSM?

Why did Freeland’s office “pressure” legacy media to change critical stories? and why did Trudeau announce millions of dollars to attack news agencies he doesn’t like.? Are governments and the MSM trying to create a narrative to manipulate the masses? There is much evidence that what is shown on the daily news is faked. Don’t believe me. Check out this video MSM Fake News Air Raid. The video on the left is of supposed Ukrainians running from air strikes. The second video was added by another user. Also, observe the body bag on the left in this news clip MSM Fake News (body bags). This video is yet Another example of disinformation about the Ukraine War. We are only given what they want us to see.

Why would media do this? Some argue that the MSM, or television in general, puts people in a hypnotic state. According to How To Override Hypnosis In The Media :

Hypnosis is a state of mind in which you suspend your normal analytical thinking, and place yourself in an open, accepting frame of mind. In this state, you find it easier to accept ideas that you normally wouldn’t.

The article, How Hypnotists (and Mass Media) Hack Your Mind to Control Your Behavior says:

Those who regularly watch news on the television, which is well-known to rapidly induce alpha brain wave states in the viewer, bringing them into a hypnotic trance automatically, typically affecting the function of the frontal lobe within an astonishing 90 seconds, and bypassing critical thinking.

According to the article, How TV influences your mind through hypnosis:

Your mind slips into the hypnotic trance state within seconds of watching TV. This lowers your brainwaves to a lower ‘alpha state’ commonly associated with meditation and deep relaxation. This is believed to be caused by the screen flicker and explains why you feel sleepy while watching TV.

Is media hypnotizing its viewers? Was the Covid narrative for the past two years to keep its viewers in a hypnotic fearful state? Are they presently hypnotizing us to think of Russians as demons? People are catching on? Poll shows trust in media, government at all-time low.  In another poll published in the National Post, it shows trust for Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer eroded either a little or a lot among 46 per cent of Canadians. And for provincial public health institutions, led by the chief medical officers, almost half of Canadians (49%) saying they had lost trust in them. Trust goes down the drain when authority figures mislead and lie (#bullying, #antibullying). Truth is prevailing!

This is Stupid

In the video Pilot Has A Message For Canadians, the pilot speaks of a “disaster averting, lifesaving phrase: ‘this is stupid’” used in the aviation world. He tells of a deadly aviation disaster involving two 747s. He says even though a first officer expressed concern, the disaster still happened because “of complacency, deferring to authority and not wanting to rock the boat by questioning.” The phrase “this is stupid” or “this is dangerous” would have awoke the pilot of danger. He goes on to say that our government presently “has their throttle jammed full forward in a race for totalitarian control,” and the “voice inside you is saying ‘this is stupid,‘ ‘this is dangerous,’ and ‘this is wrong.’” He says, “your voice is useless if you stay silent,” so “you have to summon the courage to say no.” Since 2020, I’ve been saying “something is wrong.” The truth is, Canada and the world are at a critical point. DO WE WANT TO LIVE IN A FREE WORLD OR NOT?

Trudeau has never bothered to speak to the protestors. Instead, he declared an emergency while still debating the Emergencies Act in Parliament. In fact, the House of Commons suspends debate on Emergencies Act ahead of police operation against Freedom Convoy. This act has not received approval of the Canadian Senate or Royal Assent. On February  13, a  MSM’s New York Post headline said, Canada PM Justin Trudeau slammed for invoking emergency powers to stop protests.

Multiple Canadian premiers oppose Trudeau invoking Emergencies Act. Trudeau is condemned around the world for moving to crush protests. Some headlines were blunt as in Trudeau Invokes the Emergencies Act (aka Martial Law) in Canada … For a Bunch of Truckers. Independent media says Trudeau is marching Canada down a dark path. Billionaire, Elon Musk draws ire for comparing Trudeau to Hitler.  An editorial piece in the NY Times called out Trudeau for backing a protest by farmers in India that clogged major roads in New Delhi while attacking his own citizens for a peaceful protest that has blocked roads in Ottawa. American podcaster, Dan Bongino says “Canada’s Dictator Declares War On Freedom” (see Dan Bongino Show). This is a war on our freedoms. Declaring an emergency when there is no emergency is extreme bullying (#bullying, #antibullying).

Trudeau said when announcing this emergency:

We’re entering the third week of illegal blockades that have been disrupting the lives of too many Canadians. Here in our capital city, families and small businesses have been enduring illegal obstruction of their neighbourhoods. Occupying streets, harassing people, breaking the law: this is not a peaceful protest. At the borders in different places in the country, the blockades are harming our economy and endangering public safety.

Former Prime Minister Steven Harper said in 2005, “When a government start trying to cancel dissent or avoid dissent is when it’s rapidly losing its moral authority to govern.”  Trudeau has lost the moral authority to govern.

When the blockade ended in Coutts, Alberta, protestors hugged police. Don’t believe me (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors). Watch Coutts protest ends. Still think Ottawa protestors are “endangering public safety,” and it is “not a peaceful protest?”  Watch the videos Canadian Peaceful Protest, and Food, massages offered freely to anyone in need as convoy protest continues in Ottawa. Here’s a video of the Ottawa protestors “endangering public safety.”

The National Post’s Rex Murphy: Trudeau’s monumentally misguided emergency measures are an insult to Canadians  says:

Here’s the mother of all questions for Trudeau and it is one that he cannot, and will never, answer: what was so difficult about having a talk with the leaders of a group of Canadians who found some of the government’s COVID regulations to be a grievous burden? When Black Lives Matter [a terrorist organization] flooded the streets, Trudeau not only met with them, he went into the streets and joined in on the their American-inspired protest. He gave them a knee and bowed his head. But he would not meet with the truckers. He would not talk to their representatives. There was certainly no kneeling.

Here is some history around this act. The Canadian Encyclopedia, says, when the First World War began (1914), the Canadian government  passed the War Measures Act (WMA), giving the cabinet sweeping emergency powers. This Act gave the government full authority during wartime to censor and suppress communications; to arrest, detain and deport people without charges or trials; to control the economy; and to seize private property. Most controversial is the WMA enabled the government to intern “enemy aliens” on the suspicion they posed a threat to Canada’s safety.  About 600 Italian Canadians and 800 German Canadians were interned during the war, along with Jewish refugees and Mennonites .

During the Second World War (1939), the WMA was again invoked resulting in approximately 22,000 Japanese Canadians on the West Coast being interned in remote areas of interior British Columbia. The WMA enabled the government to strip Japanese Canadians of their property and pressure them to accept mass deportation  when the war ended. I led many classroom discussions about the Japanese Internment, and students typically felt it was a violation of Japanese Canadian’s civil liberties.

In 1970, the WMA was invoked because of the October Crisis. A state of “apprehended insurrection” was officially declared to exist in Quebec in October of 1970, as a response to two kidnappings by the terrorist group Front de Libération du Québec (FLQ). This emergency enabled police to conduct more than 3,000 searches without a warrant and detain 497 people. The suspension of civil liberties in Quebec was controversial. I remember as a kid being confused about the controversy as many Canadians were angered at their loss of civil liberties.

In 1988, the WMA was amended to the Emergencies Act. This act defines a national emergency as an urgent, temporary and critical situation that seriously endangers the health and safety of Canadians or that seriously threatens the ability of the Government of Canada to preserve the sovereignty, security and territorial integrity of Canada. When invoked, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (Charter) continues to protect individual rights. The Government MUST respect constitutionally protected rights and freedoms (see Emergencies Act).

Canada’s Charter specifically says, “Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: (a) freedom of conscience and religion; (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion, and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and (d) freedom of association.”

Most Canadians feel the use of Emergencies Act is illegal because a peaceful protest is no emergency.  MSM’s National Post headlines, ‘Legal standard not met’: Two court challenges filed over Trudeau’s use of Emergencies Act. Ironically, Canada issued a harsh condemnation of the Cuban government’s sentencing of protesters who participated in anti-government rallies last July.

On February 18, in the once free country of Canada, Ottawa police arrest dozens of protesters, and start towing rigs, and Ottawa Police threaten media with arrest for covering enforcement against peaceful protesters.  Independent Media, Rebel News journalist Alexa Lavoie attacked by Ottawa police. Watch how RCMP Trample Elderly Lady With Horses. Watch how police use force.  The MSM’s National Post says This must be what Ottawa police meant by methods not usually seen in Canada. Look at the article’s disturbing pictures. Watch police damaging personal property in this video.

Watch the Fox News video: Tucker Carlson’s view of Ottawa events. What occurred is “state sanctioned violence.” CBC reports Emergencies Act directs financial institutions to freeze accounts linked to convoy protests. Trudeau gives BLM money while seizing the bank accounts of peaceful protesters. An Ottawa Bakery is facing threats and harassment over leaked convoy donation. Independent media reports that Ottawa may euthanize truckers’ pets as punishment. Trudeau’s justice minister, David Lametti says Trump supporters should be worried. Why? Trump merely endorsed the Truck Convoy.

Sadly, there are still Canadians who think this is about a virus. As an emotional Calgary police officer said after seeing what happened in Ottawa, “Canada has fallen.” This is about our government wanting totalitarian control over us. This is about the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset. Here is what  Alberta’s premier said about the Great Reset.

Are we free when peaceful protestors are ignored, and arrested for demanding freedom, when bank accounts are being frozen for supporting freedom fighters, when threats to harm family pets are made, and businesses supporting freedom are harassed? If you think this is okay, you are NOT thinking for yourself.  If you go to your heart, you know this is wrong; that this is stupid. You’d know this is a sad day for Canada.

I am still a proud Canadian, but I am ashamed of my government. Shame on a government who resorts to police action instead of peaceful dialogue with the protesters, and for the parliamentarians who voted to suspend parliament. I am ashamed of those enforcement officers conducting arrests in their riot gear and carrying automatic weapons. Shame on them for breaking the oath to serve and protect. I am ashamed of tow truck operators participating in this police action. Shame on you for wearing neon-green ski masks, with your companies’ decals taped over to conceal your identities. I am ashamed of the MSM. Shame on you for reporting a peaceful protest as a ‘nationwide insurrection” (see Business Insider).

This is NOT the country I grew up in. I no longer live in a free and democratic country. We are now living under a fascist dictatorship. That may make some uncomfortable, but that is because of cognitive dissonance. No matter what you believe, if you listen to your heart, you’d know this is stupid!

Something Astonishing is Happening

The Freedom Truck Convoy and protest happening in my country has captivated me (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors). I can’t stop watching what is going on. I pondered why, and for the first time in over two years I feel proud to be Canadian again. I have read numerous posts and comments of fellow Canadians saying the same thing. Canadians are raising money in support of the truckers, presently over 10 million dollars. Despite what mainstream media (MSM) says, truckers are respectful. See for yourself in these videos: Chris Couture’s Video and truckers ask for shovels. Canadians are showing their gratitude with food, gift cards, coffee, and greeting truckers enthusiastically when they drove by their cities and towns. See for yourself.

Historians and writers consider the Canadian victory at Vimy Ridge a defining moment for Canada. In April 1917, during the first World War (WWI), the Canadian Corps seized Vimy Ridge, a heavily-fortified seven-kilometre ridge in northern France which held a impressive view over the Allied lines. With this victory, Canada emerged from under the shadow of Britain, recognized as a country in its own right.

Once again, the world is recognizing Canadians. This time it is the Freedom Truck Convoy and their massive protest in Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. On January 26th, Justin Trudeau said this about the Freedom Convoy:

“The small fringe minority of people are on their way to Ottawa, who are holding unacceptable views that they’re expressing, do not represent the views of Canadians who have been there for each other.”

Listen carefully to his words.

You decide if it is a “small fringe minority of people?” Check out this drone video.

Ottawa Police report aprox 2.3 million people on foot and 130,000 trucks in the city. That is no “small fringe minority of people.”  I heard one of the truckers speak at Saturday’s protest saying Canada has never been a unified country until now. Gathered in Ottawa are anglophones, francophones, people of all religions, many ethnic groups, vaccinated and unvaccinated all united to end EVERY government imposed restriction and to take back their rights and freedoms. WATCH: Convoy organizers say they are fully vaxed but still oppose mandates.

Trudeau claims the truckers “do not represent the views of Canadians,“ a lie, as the vast majority of Canadians support the truckers. Poll shows majority of Canadians now want COVID restrictions to end. A Toronto Sun editorial says  It’s time to end COVID rules in Canada. Much of the world is removing restrictions as MSM’s ABC News reports in, ‘Take back life’: More nations ease coronavirus restrictions. Even the WHO Warns Against Repeated Booster Shots and Vaccine Mandates: ‘It’s Over, People’. There is no need for mandates. MSM’s National Post says Mandatory vaccination a betrayal of what Canada stands for.

The National Post, part of MSM reported on January 29, Thousands pack Parliament Hill for protest, really millions according to Ottawa police. The same day there were trucker convoys and protests held at the various provincial legislatures and in Canadian cities, such as Edmonton trucker convoy turns into massive rally against mandates.

High profile Celebrities are supporting the Truckers for Freedom Convoy. Canadians unintentionally initiated a worldwide movement. The convoy is gaining international attention. Many countries were inspired by Canada to start their own convoys as reported in European and Australian truckers are joining the Freedom Convoy! and Truckers inspired by Canada begin ‘freedom’ convoys around the world. I have seen posts of convoys in Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy, Brazil, United Kingdom, US, Finland, Czech Republic, Australia to name a few. In 1917, the world was inspired by the Canadian WWI soldiers who fought for freedom, and now 105 years later, the world is once again inspired by Canadians fighting for freedoms. This site says Uprising: Truckers Freedom Convoy is a Beacon of Hope for the Entire World.

No surprise to me, MSM and politicians attempt to mislead the public. When the truck convoy for freedom began, Canada’s CBC said Truckers protest dangerous conditions on B.C. highways, a blatant lie. Canadians didn’t buy that, so the CBC reported that it was a protest against vaccine mandates for truck drivers as in this article, Ottawa police prepare as convoy protesting vaccine mandate heads to nation’s capital. This article insinuated that the truckers might damage infrastructure, become violent, and spew statements of hatred, xenophobia, and racism to those who disagree with them. Independent Media called them out on this lie saying They tried calling truckers racist and sexist. It didn’t work. So now they’re calling them violent.  Here are Eleven ridiculous convoy stories pushed by the legacy media. . Candice Malcolm debunks legacy media lies about the Trucker Convoy. Even the MSM’s Toronto Sun says Media’s handling of trucker convoy one-sided, inflammatory, shameful. Thankfully, Media is being EXPOSED for misleading Canadians. This video clearly shows how the MSM manipulates the truth. So please reject Establishment Media Attempts To Demonize Canadian Truckers, an opinion piece by Spencer Fernando. The protestors have said from the beginning that it was a peaceful protest to demand that all pandemic-related measures end.

This protest is about freedom, and was from its inception. Protestors are demanding their civil and Charter rights be returned; rights such as the right to fully open their businesses, the right to keep their medical records private, the right to choose what medical treatments they receive, mobility rights returned—unvaccinated are forbidden to fly, and the right to be treated equally as guaranteed in the Charter of Rights and Freedom. Until recently, unvaccinated Canadians were discriminated against as Quebec health tax for unvaccinated residents prompts fierce Covid debate, but one example.

MSM and government leaders continue to spread lies and try to discredit the movement. Trudeau calls convoy truckers “tinfoil hats,” says he will not meet with organizers saying:

“Freedom of expression, assembly and association are cornerstones of democracy, but Nazi symbolism, racist imagery, and desecration of war memorials are not.”

Opposition members are calling Trudeau on his rhetoric as Conservative Party (CP) member, Pierre Poilievre, did in his response to Trudeau. Politicians are even calling out government lies. Poilievre calls former Liberal cabinet minister “a liar” for convoy tweet. Another CP member, Leslyn Lewis, at the Freedom Convoy: The people have been lied to, and they want answers. CP leader Erin O’Toole fired by his own caucus after not supporting the Freedom Convoy. In this opinion piece, Spencer Fernando outlines What The Establishment Media & Trudeau Government Doesn’t Want You To See. Trudeau even admits he is taking away Canadian’s rights and freedoms. Listen to his words carefully.

Agitators wearing Nazi symbolism are typically paid (see Paid protestor). MSM continues to present the protestors negatively like CTV’s article, ‘Very concerning’: Professor worried about extremist views present during trucker protest. Why would the MSM do that? Simple answer, MSM has been paid off as shown in the article, The Toronto Star has prostituted itself to Justin Trudeau by accepting tax dollars from hardworking Canadian families. Trudeau even brags about doing so in this  video.


Religious leaders tell us God’s spirit unites. Christian leaders would more likely say the Holy Spirit unites. Albert Einstein is considered to be one of the most brilliant scientists to have ever lived. He once wrote a powerful message of love to his son. In his letter, he tells his son;

There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet be. This universal force is LOVE. When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force.

A Baha’i Perspective says “Love is the most powerful attractive force in the universe.”

What is happening is this spiritual force —love—that Einstein refers to is uniting Canadians and the world. This spirit of togetherness is uniting humanity, conquering fear, and inspiring people to take back their intrinsic rights and freedoms. Author Cat Bauer says, “Love is so powerful that it always wins. Truth is so powerful that it always wins. All it takes is Time.” That is what I think is happening. Love, truth—and I would also add hope—is beginning to win over the fear propaganda machine. Humans were created as sovereign beings, so love, hope and truth are now reminding humanity of that. The lies and bullies (#bullying, #antibullying) are being exposed!

The Next Thing to Fear

I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) noticed since GOP26 that the mainstream media (MM), or the cooperate media, is ramping up the climate change narrative. I Googled ‘climate change news’ and got about 667,000,000 results. Here is a sampling of headlines that caught my attention. Canada’s CBC News says: Biden offers sympathies to people affected by B.C. floods, says Canada and U.S. in sync on climate change, and Big banks want to act on climate change — so what’s stopping them?  The Guardian has a headline: The forgotten oil ads that told us climate change was nothing, and NPR News says: Climate change is making it harder to provide clean drinking water in farm country. Reuther’s has U.N. climate change report sounds ‘code red for humanity’, and CNN writes Senior Pentagon official warns the US military is ‘not ready’ for climate change. Then there’s The Globe and Mail’s, Morning Update: World to warm at least 2.4 C, climate analysis shows. The fear mongering MM continues its dissemination of fear with climate alarmism. Adolf Hitler once said, “Tell a lie loud enough and long enough and people will believe it.” Are we being lied to? Joseph Stalin allegedly said, “The press must grow day in and day out – it is our Party’s sharpest and most powerful weapon.”

The MM creates climate hysteria by insinuating that we have little time left to save the planet. There is even a Climate clock that says humanity has just under 8 years to save the planet. In 2018, The Washington Post claimed The world has just over a decade to get climate change under control, U.N. scientists say. The Guardian was more specific, saying We have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe, warns UN. The BBC in 2019 created alarm with its headline, Climate change: 12 years to save the planet? Make that 18 months, as did the New York Times with the headline, Democrats Have a Year to Save the Planet. Causes climate alarmism is emotional bullying–when we’re made to feel afraid) (#bullying, #antibullying).

Authors like Bill McGuire, in his 2008 book claimed we have Seven Years to Save the Planet: The Questions and Answers, yet in 2019 ‘Uninhabitable Earth’ author said Humans Have 30 Years To Stave Off Climate Catastrophe. NRDC, (Natural Resources Defense Council), founded by a group of law students and attorneys, asserts Climate Scientists to World: We Have Only 20 Years Before There’s No Turning Back.  American politicians like “John Kerry says Earth has 9 years to avert the worst consequences of climate crisis: “There’s no faking it on this one” . So, how long does the planet have? There doesn’t seem to be agreement, yet MM and our political leaders encourage climate hysteria. My question is why? The Epoch Times answers that question saying Net-Zero Policies: Taking From the Poor and Giving to the Rich. It’s always about the money!

Now let’s set the record straight. I am not saying I don’t believe in climate change. Climate change is happening, but it is a question of whether global warming is due to natural fluctuations or due to human activities? That is the debate. The MM and our political leaders want you to believe it is due to human activities. Britannica’s procon.org lists the arguments for this debate. I used to teach about climate change, and show my students the movie, An Inconvenient Truth. This is a documentary in which Al Gore describes the problems of climate change. The truth is, I don’t know if global warming is due to natural fluctuations or if it is due to human activities. I would need to do a lot more research. The more I learn, though, the more I realize I don’t know, and the more confused I become. Euripides, a Greek writer said in the 400s BC, “Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing.” That is where I am at. In fact, American psychiatrist, M. Scott Peck, says, “The path to holiness lies through questioning everything,” so I am a truth seeker who is on the path to holiness.

Like the COVID narrative that we have been hearing about for almost 2 years, I am noticing more and more doom-laden headlines and articles, and some are just plain absurd. Nancy Pelosi said at the GOP26 climate summit that “Eighty percent of people displaced by climate change globally are women.” Does that mean climate change affects mainly women? The Independent article, How long to save the planet from climate catastrophe? This clock is ticking down states the clock reveals little time left to tackle the climate crisis before the planet is past a tipping point, specifically saying 7 years, 98 days, 15 hours… and counting. Can anyone predict that precisely when we are allegedly doomed? I doubt it.  Another article claims Climate change may increase congenital heart defects. How could they possibly blame the most common birth defect on climate change? I know from teaching biology that there are many variables that can cause birth defects. One of my favourites is the Smithsonian magazine article: Could Climate Change Mean Less Sex and Fewer Babies? It seems climate change may affect our sex lives. Countless variables can affect sex lives. The most ridiculous article I’ve seen so far is the one titled: B.C. doctor diagnoses patient with ‘climate change’ You can’t make this stuff up.  An emergency doctor at Kootenay Lake Hospital in British Columbia, Canada, attributed a patient’s illness to climate change. No one, including doctors, can make such a comprehensive claim.

Even some of the MM is questioning the climate change narrative as in the Sun’s Douglas Murray (UK edition) opinion piece COP26’s a vanity project for the global elite and eco-alarmist kids who’ve never paid a tax bill, calling it a “yawnathon green gabfest.” Many claim climate alarmism is another way to keep the masses fearful,  like Conrad Black: Unfettered climate alarmism on full display at COP26 — National Post, also part of MM and Doomsday climate change predictions promote fear and anxiety. Some believe The CBC has become a woke climate alarmist rag,   and some are even Debunking the climate hysteria from the United Nations with Tom Harris. American cognitive scientist, Noam Chomsky says, “The more you can increase fear of drugs and crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more you control all the people.” Now we can add fear of climate to his list, and let’s not forget fear of COVID.

Canada’s prime minister is a climate alarmist as shown in the article, Trudeau’s climate advisor says climate action not “going fast enough”.  Calgary City Council officially declares ‘CLIMATE EMERGENCY’ in the city, implying Canada has a climate crisis.  MM’s Globe and Mail alarms people with After a year of disasters, it’s urgent that we address Canada’s climate-caused water crisis. Independent Media, True North News, argues Canada does not have a climate crisis. I find it interesting that MM promotes climate hysteria while independent news refutes it. At least those looking at independent media get another side of the narrative.

Conrad Black said in the National Post that Unfettered climate alarmism on full display at COP26. I would to have agree since the hypocritical world’s leaders who attended it partied on Fuel-guzzling cruise ship hosts 3,000 global leaders at COP26, Glasgow locals, attendees complained of COP26 delegates leaving their cars idling, and Over 400 Private Jets Flew to Glasgow to “Save the Climate,” with leaders defending their flights. The 120 saviours of the planet (world leaders) are hypocrites who put on a show. The Epoch Times says COP 26: It’s Time for the Make-Believe to Stop and Andrew Lawton of True North News calls the conference a COP26 cop-out. Conrad Black in the MM’s, National Post, talks about The ghastly charade in Glasgow and the West’s self-flagellation over the climate writing “Glasgow was as inconsequential as the Paris, Copenhagen and Kyoto conferences that preceded it,” and “a colossal scam most of the climate fear campaign is.” It is difficult for me to become alarmed by climate change when our leaders don’t take it seriously.

The New York Times’s recent headline Vancouver Is Marooned by Flooding and Besieged Again by Climate Change , like most MM, creates climate alarmism. I find it interesting that the Vancouver Sun in its 2016 article This Week In History: 1913 — Series of storms dump a biblical amount of rain, sleet and snow on U.S. and its 2021 article This Week in History: 1894 & 1948 The Fraser Valley is inundated in a great flood admits that major flooding in BC is nothing new, since massive floods have occurred as far back as 1894, probably even before that. These historic floods occurred during times when climate change and global warming were unknown terms. Here is a video of the 1948 great flood with images that look remarkably like the images media shows today.

I once was alarmed because of the global warming and climate change narrative, even teaching my students about the urgency to make changes. Now, since it’s namely the MM corporate media promoting climate hysteria, I am reconsidering my views. As Euripides said, “Question everything.” That is what I am doing. Just because the MM said it, doesn’t mean it is truth. I will do my own thinking and research on the topic.

Government of the People, by the People, for the People

The words in the title were spoken by the 16th US president, Abraham Lincoln , during the Gettysburg Address where he honoured soldiers who sacrificed their lives. Lincoln said these sacrifices were in order “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” These words apply to all soldiers that died for freedom and democracy.

Growing up, I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) heard my dad say many times, “politicians are crooks.” I never really understood what he meant until later when I would see politicians make promises during election campaigns and then break them when elected, making most politicians liars. Ironically, the Guardian has a 19-year-old article titled, Politicians are ‘crooks and liars’ says BBC research. I see government corruption being revealed daily. Now I understand my dad’s words.

Constitutions are important documents which dictate how we are governed. I admire the US constitution because it begins with “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union…” suggesting their constitution is ‘of the people, by the people, for the people.’ For Canada, that is not the case. The people are virtually absent from the Canadian Constitution, as it opens with a formal “Whereas the provinces have expressed the desire to be federally united into one Dominion” (see BNA Act).

Canada’s constitution isn’t working and this is likely true for many countries. This is obvious by how hypocritical, corrupt and untrustworthy governments are, especially Canada’s government. I’m not the only one saying so. One in six Canadians don’t trust information from the government and Nearly half of Canadians want political system completely reformed: Pew Research. Yet mainstream media, or MM, like CTV News claim Unlike U.S. neighbours, most Canadians content with state of their democracy: survey and the National Post who assert Canadians love their democracy (but hate their politicians). With no faith in MM, I take these Legacy Media articles with a ‘grain of salt.’ Canada’s democracy needs fixing.

Let’s start with Canada’s prime minister (PM). The article, Is Justin Trudeau Placing Democracy On Permanent Vacation? reports that our PM is impeding democracy by delaying parliament. The Toronto Sun published a commentary saying, “By the time MPs return it will have been six months since Canada’s Parliament last met.” How is this democracy?

In the video, Have we learned nothing from history? Ezra Lavant gives his thoughts on some of recent political manoeuvres made to seize greater control over Canada’s parliament. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said; “Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.” When discrimination and segregation of Canadians is endorsed by governments, we’re being oppressed. When inalienable human rights are taken away by governments, we’re being oppressed. This is government bullying (#bullying, #antibullying), or shall I say tyranny.

Canada’s democracy is broken, and the article: Is A Canada Where Public Opinion Has No Meaning A True Democracy? outlines many reasons why. As long as politicians are forced to vote along political party lines, and no free votes are allowed, our democracy is not a true democracy. We live with the illusion it is. The Toronto Sun’s commentary talks about The uninspiring sameness of Canada’s political parties, which means we think we have choices, but really we don’t.

In Canada, the federal government makes equalization payments to provincial governments to help address fiscal disparities among Canadian provinces. My province, Alberta, has always felt this equalization program is unfair, especially when Alberta’s economy has suffered in recent years, yet we receive nothing. In fact, Majority of Canadians believe equalization is unfair to Alberta: poll, and  66% of Canadians think equalization unfairly disadvantages Alberta. A referendum was held in October on this topic and 61.7% of Alberta referendum voters opt to remove equalization from constitution. Yet, Trudeau slams Alberta Premier Jason Kenney for his ‘incredibly political’ referendum on equalization and Quebec’s Bloc Québécois leader scoffs at Alberta’s equalization referendum. Even MM’s National post has the opinion that Jason Kenney’s equalization referendum shows Canada doesn’t work. I couldn’t agree more. Our constitutional system is flawed.

Alberta’s Premier called Trudeau and Guilbeault, “radical green left” hypocrite, out for “gross hypocrisy” after they repeatedly shut down efforts to shift towards nuclear energy – a safe alternative to fossil fuels identified by experts around the world.  CTV News says ‘Stop kicking us while we’re down’: Alberta premier has harsh words for politicians who say oil industry is dead. If the Canadian federation worked the way it was intended, the PM and all provinces would work together for the benefit of all Canadians. I wonder if Trudeau even knew that  Foreign Interests spent billions to wage war against Alberta’s oil industry. The Canadian federation is broken.

In Canada, to run for political office, you must be a Canadian citizen and be at least 18 years old on election day. Yet, many potential candidates are rejected by political parties, as the articles, Disqualified Conservative Yukon candidate Jonas Smith to run as independent and Conservative pundit Aaron Gunn barred from running for BC Liberal leadership reveal. Even those accepted by a political party are tossed out when they speak freely as in Former CPC candidate for Yukon goes indie after dismissal for COVID passport views.  How can you call this democracy when free thinking is forbidden?

Then there is the hypocrisy of politicians. The National Post’s article, Trudeau’s Tofino romp exposed him as a hypocrite in the eyes of the public, questions Trudeau’s credibility after he proclaimed a National Day of Truth and Reconciliation which is a day for reflection on how the Indigenous people were treated. Trudeau vacationed on that day, instead of participating in ceremonies, which is hypocrisy at its finest. Even the people who protect the PM are threatening to quit as Trudeau’s sniper detail blasts PM over vaccine mandate, saying they no longer wish to protect a tyrannical leader. Even though Canada had an election in September, this explains why letters in the Calgary Sun say it’s  ‘Time to take Trudeau to the polls again’.  Our PM is no leader, he is a hypocrite! As Suneeta Pandey says, “A good leader will unite and lead, a bad leader will divide and rule.”

Canada’s government refuses to raise Canadian flag so it can be lowered for Remembrance Day. Most Canadians have long forgotten why flags are at half-mast. At federal buildings in Canada, our flag has been flying at half-mast since May 30 when Trudeau issued the order after unmarked graves were found on former residential school sites. Remembrance Day tradition dictates that flags ceremonially be lowered to half-mast. The PM wants Canadians to believe he cares about Indigenous people, but clearly he doesn’t when Trudeau files last-ditch appeal against billions for Indigenous children, after a tribunal ordered the Canadian government to pay compensation to indigenous children who suffered discrimination in welfare system.

Then there’s the hypocrisy of the world’s leaders attending COP26, a Climate Change conference in Glasgow, Scotland. The world’s leaders partied on Fuel-guzzling cruise ship hosts 3,000 global leaders at COP26 and Over 400 Private Jets Flew to Glasgow to “Save the Climate,” yet these leaders defended their flights. Then we hear of Glasgow locals, attendees complaining of COP26 delegates leaving their cars idling. It is obvious to me that the 120 world leaders portraying themselves as the planet’s saviours are hypocrites. This “show” costs Canadians financially as Canada sent most delegates to COP26 out of G7 nations and Liberals won’t reveal cost of 300 officials and aides attending COP26. Plus, leaders are not talking about the world’s pressing issues, such as struggling economies, unemployment, or the alleged pandemic. Instead, World leaders fear-monger over climate change while ignoring the real issues. Watch some world leaders at COP26 remove their masks after a photo (COP26 hypocrites). On a side note, a Former Canadian provincial premier calls out the world’s leaders for COVID tyranny, saying ‘End Game’ Is A Global ‘Reset’.

New Zealand’s Prime Minister admits she is creating a two-tier society between vaccinated and unvaccinated revealed in  COVID Tyrant: Yes We Want a Two-Class System. The article, Big Pharma payola scandal erupts in Australia, takes down six corrupt officials and Australian Premier Berejiklian reports that Australian premier and staff members of New South Wales, resigned in shame over their involvement in a massive Covid-19 bribery scheme. Watch the video, NZ PM ends her press conference, where New Zealand’s leader walks out on a news conference when asked an unapproved question from an Independent News agency. I ask you: Does this sound like governments are of the People, by the People, for the People?

Former US president Ronald Reagan once said, “Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.” I agree totally. When citizens are afraid of their governments, as many are today, governments are bullying. “People shouldn’t be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people,” Alan Moore proclaims.  Human Rights First Canada says, “Tyrants are not the problem. People obeying tyrants; that’s the problem.” Exactly! “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” a quote by Thomas Jefferson.  People obeying tyrants is why Canada is no longer free. I know that makes some uncomfortable, but as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.”

Is Mainstream News Trustworthy?

“Fake news” refers to false or misleading information presented as news. Most people identify “fake news” with Donald Trump, as he used the term widely to challenge mass media coverage of his 2016 presidential campaign. The former president even referred to the press as “the enemy of the people.” Now I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) will admit, when I first heard Donald Trump use the phrase “fake news,” I didn’t understand what he meant, but I sure do now. He might be right. The press may be “the enemy of the people.”

I have become more and more disillusioned with Mainstream Media (MM), or Legacy Media, which started back in 1985 when I was involved in a teacher’s strike. Being part of the strike committee, I had inside information, yet what the media was reporting was very different from what I knew as an insider. I also know two other people who shared their experiences involving a murder, and their experience with news media. They told me that what the media reported and what they knew because of personal involvement differed greatly.  My disillusionment has only grown since.

I’m not the only one as Half of Citizens Polled Say Media Are Intentionally Deceiving Canadians. Even MM’s Toronto Sun headline:  As CBC ratings plummet, they ask for more taxpayer dollars. Independent News outlets say, the CBC is the media arm of the Liberal Party of Canada and I would have to agree. Regarding Canada’s publicly owned news media, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), many Canadians question if tax dollars are well spent, as in the article CBC: Costing Canadians $1.2 billion — and for what?  In fact, there are calls to defund the CBC, with the MM’s National Post saying Erin O’Toole won the Tory leadership promising to ‘defund CBC. The Financial Post says CBC does not deserve our money. There is even a petition to defund the CBC. Clearly, Canadians are losing faith in the news, or at the very least, the CBC.

This trust is dwindling in other countries as well. In the US, Well Deserved: Americans Have the Lowest Trust in the Mainstream Media. In the United Kingdom, the BBC faces fresh calls for defunding after sending ‘despicable’ letters to elderly viewers. If news is withholding and manipulating the truth, then of course trust is lost because this is passive bullying (#bullying, #antibullying).

The concentration of ownership of media very much alarms me. In the US the Big 6 Media Companies are Comcast, Walt Disney, AT&T, ViacomCBS, Sony, and Fox. Together they control 90% of all media outlets. Surprising to me was, “Canada has the biggest concentrated TV ownership out of all the G8 countries and it comes in second place for the most concentrated television viewers,” according to Wikipedia.

In Wikipedia’s article, Concentration of media ownership, it says:

Media integrity— the ability of a media outlet to serve the public interest and democratic process—is at risk when small number of companies and individuals control the media market. Net neutrality— involves a lack of restrictions on content on the internet—is also at stake when media mergers occur.

When the MM is owned by a few individuals, or corporations, of course integrity is compromised. That’s alarming. If owners have an agenda, such as spreading fear of a virus, concentration of media ownership makes that easy. This is not just me claiming that the MM is a fear propaganda machine.  Bill Maher Asks Liberal Media to Stop “Scaring the S—” Out of People About COVID, and even politicians have as in “Stop promoting fear:” Premier Kenney takes aim at legacy media’s COVID coverage.

Another reason not to trust MM is they can be bought. Every news media who secretly took Trudeau’s $61M pre-election pay-off and Liberal government gave Canadian Press $2 million during pandemic are examples. Trudeau even admits he did in the video, Well now! Nothing like outright admitting that you bought the media! Check it out. This editorial claims Secret Liberal Government Payments To Media Subvert Democracy – Spencer Fernando. If media can be bought, of course they threaten democracy. How can media have integrity when they are bought off?

The most convincing reason for me not to trust MM is the numerous times media outlets have been caught outright lying to us, or at the very least manipulating a story to get viewers or readers to think a certain way—mind manipulation if you will. A recent example is CBC uses mannequin instead of patient to show crowded ICU..  The articles CBC admits they used mannequin in COVID propaganda,, The CBC was forced to admit that they engaged in fake news, and CBC apologizes for using fake patients and training facility in COVID-19 story all confirm the story. Even the National Post says, ‘Error in judgement’: CBC Edmonton regrets mannequin’s use in COVID-19 news report. This was more than an error in judgement. This was deliberately done to mislead people making it fake news as True North’s Candice Malcolm says, The CBC was forced to admit that they engaged in fake news.

There are many other examples, and not just in Canada. A LEAKED VIDEO: Daily Mail Australia caught manufacturing fake news and WATCH: Police bodycam proves the mainstream media was HIDING the truth. In the US “They’re Lying at Your Network” – CNN Correspondent Confronted During Interview. Another example involving CNN is CNN Attempts Damage Control After Being Humiliated by Joe Rogan, a podcaster who blasted CNN for lying about ivermectin. In the United Kingdom, The silence from BBC News, Sky News, & GB News is deafening after hundreds of thousands of people marched for your Freedom on June 26thGermany’s Largest Newspaper BILD Apologises for Harming Society Over its Coverage of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The list goes on.

Here are more examples from Canada. In a heavily slanted article by CBC News during Canada’s recent election, reporting on Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole’s views on mandatory vaccinations for federal workers, the CBC failed to mention that the Liberals held the exact same position when it comes to vaccine mandates. (see CBC bashes Conservatives). The story, Big sister of dead child used in COVID propaganda speaks out against media and government, is a story about the sister of the boy who died calling out the media and government for lying.  In this article, Levy points out the Shameful double standard in how police, politicians and the media cover terror attacks. Showing more skewed reporting is Cuban protesters call for end of Communist regime (and mainstream media lies about it), and Global News journo caught in fake news lie over Trudeau’s blocked campaign bus. Another article tells how Legacy media largely ignored Trudeau’s “monetary policy” gaffe. Then there’s the story of a journalist whose show was cancelled for raising concerns about ethical standards in media today (see Lacey Lee Elliott: TV host cancelled after vid on NOT trusting the media). MM constantly tells us to “trust the experts” when it comes to COVID-19, but what the media doesn’t tell us is sometimes the health experts turn out to be partisan politicians and/or political donors.  This was  revealed in How can we trust “experts” when they moonlight as political activists? The “icing on the cake” is a SUPERSPREADER COVER-UP: CBC hides internal outbreak from public.

I have to wonder why governments—specifically Justin Trudeau—try to suppress independent media as in the story, Team Trudeau cuts our mic — Terry Guillon RETURNS to bully Rebel News! Could it be that independent media tells more truth? The truth is, Canadians can’t rely on the legacy media to report the truth.

I trust independent media more than the MM. If you read my blogs regularly, you know that. Yet, I still get many people refuting my arguments citing MM news articles. That won’t convince me for reasons clearly outlined above. If you wish to contest something I say, you’ll have to use other sources. Am I saying that independent media is unbiased? No, of course they have their biases, since MM labels them conservative. What baffles me is those who rely on MM for their information, yet never question that the MM might be biased or even lying to us. These people are quick to tell me that the sources I use are prejudiced or biased. Is news from MM fake? The evidence is there.

I’ll end with some food for thought.

The greatest weapon is not a gun or a bomb. It is the control of information. To control the world’s information is to manipulate all the minds that consume it.

Are We Playing Simon Says?

You probably noticed I’ve (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) taken a break from blogging, instead, spending time in nature, camping with my wife and occasionally with some of my children. It was my way to disconnect from all the craziness in this world of ours. I’m sure you’ll agree, sometimes we need a break.

Coming back to reality, I see the craziness continues. It feels like I’m in a game of ‘Simon Says,’ a game I played as a kid. If you are unfamiliar with the game, it is a children’s game where one player takes the role of “Simon” and issues instructions to the other players, which should be followed only when prefaced with the phrase “Simon says.” Players are eliminated from the game by either following instructions that are not immediately preceded by the phrase, or by failing to follow an instruction which does include the phrase “Simon says.” It teaches the ability to distinguish between genuine and fake commands. The object for the player acting as Simon is to get all the other players out as quickly as possible; the winner of the game is usually the last player who has successfully followed all commands.

Simon—really, I mean the government, health professionals, and legacy(mainstream) media—says Covid cases are rising, no, Covid cases are dropping, stay indoors, wear a mask, wear two masks, only 10 can gather outside, no, now Simon says 20 can. Stay 6 feet or 2 metres apart, but only when you’re not wearing a mask.  Wear a mask outdoors, no, you’re safe outdoors without a mask since Covid doesn’t spread easily outdoors, masks work, masks don’t work, vaccinations protect you, vaccinations may not protect you, unvaccinated are spreading virus, no, the vaccinated are spreading virus. As in the game, the directives and narratives are constantly changing.

Let me tell you what I see happening these days. The narrative has been (or shall we say Simon says) get vaccinated as the Unvaccinated People Are Increasing the Chances for More Coronavirus Variants and Unvaccinated Albertans are majority of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths: Hinshaw, Alberta’s designated top doctor. But then Simon says (narrative changes) as Fauci: Amount of Virus in COVID-19 Breakthrough Delta Cases ‘Almost Identical’ to Unvaccinated. Now Simon says Vaccinated people spreading Delta variant just as quickly as the unvaccinated: Leaked CDC document. Now that’s a 180 degree turn. Simon says this is partly based on a CDC study shows 74% of people infected in Massachusetts Covid outbreak were fully vaccinated. I am so confused. I always taught in my biology classes that vaccinations artificially made people immune to the virus because it induced the production of antibodies. Do the shots protect us or not? Seems not since the PHE released a report revealing 62% of alleged Covid deaths are people who’ve been vaccinated. Are Covid vaccines effective? I have to wonder since Simon is now saying  Covid Delta variant: Two vaccine shots may be ineffective, booster shots needed [details].

Simon says  COVID Vaccines Aren’t Dangerous, but then he says, FDA Approval Of Pfizer COVID Vaccine Does Not Mean It’s ‘Safe’, Liberty Counsel Says. Simon even says there are Possible Side Effects After Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine. Even serious ones as Simon says, CDC Finds More Cases of Heart Inflammation Than Expected in Vaccinated Young Males. Simon even says the COVID Vaccine Injury Reports Jump by 27,000 in One Week, FDA Pulls ‘Bait and Switch’ With Pfizer Vaccine Approval. Do Covid shots work? I cannot listen to Simon anymore when he contradicts himself.

Now Simon says our children should be jabbed as Alberta schools to host COVID-19 vaccine clinics this fall. Why would Simon say that? when the Majority of COVID-19 victims were very old and had serious health problems: StatsCan. Even the CDC says 0.04% of COVID-19 Deaths Are in Children 17 and Under. That means youth (17 and under) have a survival rate of 99.96%. Nova Scotia releases COVID comorbidity stats also say this. Why would Simon say our youth need the shot? Seems to me they have natural protection. Yet, PA Push For Kids To Get Vaccine Without Parental Consent Advances. Why would Simon say such things? Is Simon trying to confuse us? Is Simon up to something?

What about Travel? Simon says you can travel if vaccinated as Trudeau doubles down on mandatory COVID-19 vaccines for domestic travel, but then Mixed vaccines could keep British Columbians from cruise travel. But if you traveling over the southern border in the US, Simon says it’s okay, even though there is a  900% Increase In Migrants Coming Over Border Testing Positive For Covid. Simon is so confusing.

Simon first told us the PCR Tests: Gold Standard in Fighting COVID-19, but now Simon says The CDC Is Withdrawing Its Original PCR Test for COVID—Here’s Why That’s a Good Thing. In other words, the CDC Revokes Emergency Use Authorization To RT-PCR For COVID-19 Testing. The CDC now says that many of the COVID-19 cases this past year could NOT be distinguished from “flu cases.” That explains why flu cases in Alberta decreased to zero in 2020. If the PCR is the gold standard, as Simon says, then why does Simon sometimes say Up to 90% of PCR Tests for COVID-19 May Be False Positives. Plus the inventor of the PCR test said that the PCR test was not made to detect any type of infectious disease (see Never Said). Simon changes his mind a lot.

Now Simon says New Zealand Locks Down After Single Suspected Covid Variant Case, but then says Despite ‘Delta’ Alarmism, COVID-19 Deaths Hit 16-Month Low and 35,000 Americans Getting Symptomatic COVID-19 a Week Despite Being Vaccinated: CDC. Simon is so puzzling. In the US McConnell hints at LOCKDOWNS if more Americans don’t get vaccinated, but then Fauci predicts US will not return to lockdowns despite Delta variant risks. Do lockdowns work or not? If this is the forth wave of Covid, then clearly they aren’t working (What will Canada’s 4th COVID-19 wave look like? Here’s what the experts, data say). Furthermore, why would Simon promote more lockdowns when Lockdowns killed more Canadians under 65 than COVID-19: Statscan? The Use of fentanyl, cannabis and methamphetamines in Canada skyrocketed during pandemic: report tells me that lockdowns do more harm than good, since more people die from the lockdowns than the virus.

What about masks? What does Simon say about that? Canada’s top doc encourages Manitobans to keep masks on, and Wear a mask during sex, skip kissing, Canada’s top doctor suggests. So, More Winnipeg school divisions mandate masks, vaccines. Then Simon says masks are needed outside as Joe Biden tells parents to make their children wear masks OUTSIDE to keep them safe from COVID, then Simon says, Penn State AD says no masks will be required for outdoor seating at Beaver Stadium. Make up your mind, Simon! Curbing Covid Spread Requires Wearing Masks, Fauci Says, but then Simon says, CDC: Students Wearing Masks No Longer Need Quarantine, Even if ‘Close Contact’. Then Simon confuses me more, saying FINALLY a Clinical Trial on Facemasks in Children – Parents Take Note! saying masks harm children.

When Covid started, Simon said Here’s how scientists know the coronavirus came from bats and wasn’t made in a lab, and No evidence of novel coronavirus originating from a laboratory. Then Simon changes his mind, and says, BOMBSHELL: House Committee finds COVID-19 leaked from Wuhan lab. Then he says something disturbing, saying Coronavirus is a Biological Warfare Weapon. Simon, you are scaring me.

It’s not just me who is confused by Simon. WATCH: Police officer vents his frustration at inconsistent Covid rules and Confused on COVID rules? You’re not alone. As a kid, when I was tired of playing a game, I simply quit playing the game. I am tired of playing Simon’s Covid game. So, I quit. The truth is, I quit listening to Simon (government leaders, health officials, and Legacy or Mainstream Media) long ago. I would rather trust my own thinking, and not Simon’s. His directives are just too damn mystifying. Plus, I have to wonder if Simon is a tyrant as Why the Silence in the Face of Covid Tyranny? – AIER. Tyrants are cruel, unreasonable, and like to use power or control. Simon, are you just being a bully (#antibullying, #bullying)? Are you a tyrant?

There is Something Wrong in Canada

Former Residential School in Alberta, Canada

In early June, News from Kamloops shook Canada when the remains of 215 children on a former residential school site in Kamloops, British Columbia (BC) were found. A week later, 751 unmarked graves at a former Saskatchewan residential school were located. The Marieval Indian Residential School site was operated by the Roman Catholic Church from 1899 to 1997 (source BBC). On June 30th, once again, First Nations in Cranbrook, BC reported 182 unmarked gravesites discovered near the location of a former residential school site close to the former St. Eugene’s Mission School (source CBC). I’m sure there will be more remains discovered.

Like most Canadians, I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) was outraged by this news, since these deaths resulted from bullying (#bullying #antibullying) by the governments of the day and Christian churches who ran the schools, half of which were Catholic Churches. However, I was surprised by the level of anger. It seems that Canadians either forgot about the revelations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission or didn’t pay much attention to it. ­In the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, in a document titled, Canada’s Residential Schools: Missing Children and Unmarked Burials, it was recommended that a study be done to identify the location of cemeteries and gravesites in which students were believed to be buried. The project was to collaborate with communities to identify options for commemoration, ceremony, and further community-based research. In 2009, the Commission requested the government cover the cost of this research, but the request was denied. I have to wonder, was the Canadian government trying to cover this up? The Commission revealed that there were many children buried in unmarked graves on former residential school sites.

Since the discovery of over 1000 unmarked graves, church vandalism in Canada has exploded and “suspicious” burnings of Christian (mostly Catholic) churches became widespread.  The US is experiencing similar events (see Catholic churches have been torched and vandalized in the US). From June 21 through June 26, four Catholic churches located on tribal lands in British Columbia burned to the ground. Nova Scotia RCMP report suspicious fire at Catholic church in First Nations community. An Anglican church burned on June 26, but was extinguished with minor damage. In the province of Alberta, a fire was extinguished in the early morning hours of June 28 at the Siksika Nation Catholic Church. One June 30th,  Alberta woke up to the headline, Century-old Catholic church in Morinville, Alta., destroyed by fire, a church I visited years ago. These fires appear to be intentionally set, and these attacks on churches continue. These attacks are hate-crimes directed towards the Christian community, and some even argue this is a war on Christianity (see Rebel News). I have to wonder why it took Canada’s prime minister 11 days to condemn attacks on christian churches (see Trudeau denounces church burnings, vandalism in Canada) when the October defacing of the mosque in Cold Lake, Alberta, provoked Trudeau to denounce it the next day.

Since the discovery of unmarked graves, a debate brewed in June over whether to hold Canada Day celebrations. According to the article, Cancel Canada Day: ‘Nothing to celebrate’ amid unmarked graves, many Indigenous community leaders and advocates have promoted the cancelation of celebrations, instead, asking for the day to be one to reflect on the real history of Canada and to support Indigenous people. Many communities across Canada have heeded to that call (see Timeline).

Another debate also erupted: What should Canada do about the statues that regard the very men who started the schools where these children died? Many institutions and local governments are acting to remove statues of Canada’s first prime minister, and other politicians, plus renaming streets and schools of those directly connected to Canada’s residential school program. Statues, including Religious statues, in Canada are being vandalized like the Six religious statues beheaded at Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, in Sudbury, Ontario. Vandalization of Catholic churches is rampant with at least 10 Calgary churches defaced with red paint on Canada Day. Not all Indigenous leaders agree with what’s occurring since some Indigenous chiefs and leaders decry church burnings and vandalism.

The level of reaction to discoveries on former residential school sites is unprecedented. Don’t get me wrong, the reaction should be strong. It’s a collective call for justice, and a call for all Canadians to be united with Canada’s First Nations people. The question is: Does justice mean burning churches, removing statues, vandalizing, and dumping Canada’s national day?

Sheila North, the former Grand Chief of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO) says;

“These things are perpetuating the racism and perpetuating the hatred towards Indigenous people without even realizing.”

I have to agree! The ways Canadians are directing their anger is only keeping division alive. Such activities do nothing to further reconciliation. They are actions of revenge which divide us by perpetuating hatred towards Indigenous people, catholics, or some other group.

Not everyone thinks residential schools were bad. An Indigenous person once told me that she felt she benefited from residential schools. There are even some who believe residential schools were a good thing as a Priest under fire after sermon on the ‘good done’ by Catholic Church on residential schools. Personally, I fail to see how any good can come from government-sponsored religious schools established to assimilate Indigenous children into Euro-Canadian culture. How can any good come from an estimated 150,000 First Nation, Inuit, and Métis children who were isolated from their culture, and who suffered abuses in the form of excessive physical abuse and sexual predation?

I understand the anger. I stand with the First Nations people and it saddens me the way our European ancestors treated them. There needs to be justice and reconciliation. However, Cancelling Culture—the phenomenon of “canceling” people, brands, shows, and movies due to problematic or offensive remarks, ideologies, and branding—is not the answer. In the article, What is the Cancel Culture Movement, it says:

One of the biggest problems with cancel culture is that people are quick to cancel, but never so quick to forgive…It ignores the idea that people can pay for their mistakes, and insists that we should all be perfect beings who have never – and will never – make a mistake. The problem is that humans aren’t infallible. Who hasn’t made a mistake in the past?

Our history should never be cancelled, instead, it needs to be studied so mistakes of the past are never repeated. We need to forgive past leaders for the damage their decisions caused, and right those wrongs. Statues should not be torn down, but serve as reminders of people who made mistakes. To cancel history doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

Cambridge Dictionary defines justice as “fairness in the way people  are dealt with.” Most Canadians and Americans would agree Indigenous people were treated unfairly. Canada’s prime minister is calling on the Pope to apologize for the Catholic Church’s role in residential schools, and is urging Canadian Catholics to demand action from their church.  Churches should take responsibility, but why isn’t our government taking responsibility, since all residential schools were mandated by them? Did the PM forget that Pierre Trudeau, his father, was Prime Minister (PM) of Canada from 1968 to 1979, and during that time, the maintenance of residential schools were run by his government?

Yes, the Catholic church and governments need to apologize, but NOT just words. Apologies require actions to correct the wrongs done to survivors. PM Justin Trudeau promised to end all long-term boil-water advisories within five years during his 2015 campaign. If the PM really felt First Nations people were wronged, then he would keep that promise. Instead, Indigenous Services minister says Trudeau government won’t end boil-water advisories by March 2021. Actions speak louder than words Mr. PM.

Adam Soos from Rebel News says:  

Reconciliation is a vital conversation that we must have, but please, for the sake of any progress that we have made on the path towards reconciliation, do not associate these hate crimes with progress or justice for the tragedies of our history. This is not justice. This is just the start of another dark chapter in Canadian history.  

I couldn’t agree more. This must be a time to unite with our Indigenous people, to reconcile with our history, and to start acting as one people. Mahatma Gandhi says, “Relationships are based on four principles: respect, understanding, acceptance and appreciation.” It is time to respect and understand First Nations people, their culture, and what they endured. It is time to accept them as equals, and appreciate Indigenous people for who they are. Let’s stop this nonsense that Canadians are inherently racist as Critical Race Theory would have us believe. This theory reasons that racism is systemic, is inherent in much of the American or Canadian way of life, and paints “white” people as racist. Racism is learned, and is designed to divide us. As I said in Does Media Mirror Culture, or Create Culture? “We humans are innately good, naturally cooperative, and instinctively altruistic.” It is time to start being who we truly are.
