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!

Has the World Gone Insane?

English actor and comedian, John Cleese, once said, “The World is insane. With tiny spots of sanity, here and there… Not the other way around!”  I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors)  think he’s right. An online Dictionary defines insanity as “extreme foolishness or irrationality.” It was Albert Einstein who said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” We’re told that we are now in the 4th wave—some say fifth—of COVID driven by the Omicron variant. CTV News says ‘We are in for the long haul’: Canadians experience pandemic fatigue amid fourth wave. It’s more than fatigue; people are fed up considering an Australian man sets himself on fire to protest COVID restrictions.

In the National Post, Jordan Peterson wrote a piece, Open the damn country back up, before Canadians wreck something we can’t fix, describing how insane our world has gotten. He writes, “the country is growing more authoritarian in response to fear,” and “We are pushing the complex systems upon which we depend and which are miraculously effective and efficient in their often thankless operation to their breaking point.”  World citizens are fed up demonstrated by Millions protested vaccine mandates, and the media barely mentioned it.

The CDC Director Admits Vaccines Don’t Prevent Transmission, and that  Over 75% Of COVID Deaths In Vaccinated Had ‘At Least 4 Comorbidities’.  The British gov’t admits efficacy of face masks is ‘not conclusive’. Nearly 15,000 Deaths, More than 700,000 Injuries Reported to VAERS Since December 2020 Rollout of COVID Vaccines in U.S. yet the CDC says vaccines are safe and effective. We’re told vaccines are the only way  out of the alleged pandemic, and Ivermectin is unsafe, yet the WHO’s Own Website: Even When Taken In Animal Doses, Ivermectin “NOT Hazardous To Humans!” Canada’s top doctor, Theresa Tam, says there’s No data suggesting vaccine passports work. Most interesting is the Food and Drug Administration or FDA Now Wants 75 Years to Release Pfizer Vaccine Documents. What are they hiding? And why has the Trudeau Government Exempting Immigrants From Medical Testing. This much confusion can only be described as insane!

Global News reports on a January 2022 poll suggesting a slim majority of Canadians support the latest round of lockdowns and other government-imposed restrictions. It says 56% of respondents in the poll agreed governments are making the right decisions to limit the spread of Omicron and keep the health system from being overrun. The fact is, government restrictions failed to stop the spread of COVID, and many restrictions are ridiculous like Canada’s Top 10 worst and weirdest winter COVID restrictions.

What’s irrational is the lack of concern for the casualties of lockdowns and restrictions such as how Lockdowns killed more Canadians under 65 than COVID-19: Statscan. Very alarming is the 4 million cries for help: Calls to Kids Help Phone soar amid pandemic. Most insane is Washington State Elementary Students Are Eating Outside In 39-Degree Weather While Teachers Dine Indoors – For ‘Safety’  Even the New York Times Admits America Sacrificed Children’s Well-Being For Sake Of Adults’ Safety In The Name Of COVID-19, stating: [Some] have begun backtracking on previously held beliefs regarding COVID-19. From Jen Rubin admitting COVID-19 is not as deadly as it first appeared, to Dr. Anthony Fauci saying we’re ‘overcounting’ come cases…

The Toronto Sun has a opinion piece titled, As more people get mild Omicron, they’re questioning the need for restrictions. It states that “If we hadn’t been tested and knew it was Omicron, we would have thought it was just a cold.”  It’s irrational, and all out insanity to ignore the damage caused by government-imposed restrictions. I haven’t even got into damage done to our economies.

Remember when ‘conspiracy theory’ people were laughed at for suggesting in 2020 and 2021 that a nationwide vaccine passport system was coming; a ‘conspiracy theory’ that became truth like the 7 COVID ‘Conspiracy Theories’ That Came True in 2021. As Brazilian lyricist, Paulo Coelho says, “If you want to control someone, all you have to do is to make them feel afraid.”  The article, Inside the Omicron fear factory says, “Public health chiefs and the media are working overtime to gin up hysteria.”  Yet Many Seem To Think The Loss Of Freedom Will Only Impact ‘Other People, according to Spencer Fernando who says:

Putting our faith in any one politician or party will only continue to perpetuate the cycle of hope & betrayal that comes with expecting people to be anything other than focused on using powerful centralized systems to further their own interests at our expense.

Maybe this is why our hypocritical political elites don’t appear to be afraid of the Omicron variant since hours after Alberta’s premier called for holiday restrictions, his political party holds Xmas party for hundreds, and Alberta’s top, Doctor Hinshaw will not ‘judge’ UCP for having Christmas party despite recommendations. Irrational behaviour was exposed when Alberta Health Services CEO was Caught Spreading Misinformation About ICU Bed Capacity.

Restrictions are causing major havoc on our planet. Jordan Peterson, who I mentioned earlier, clearly shows that in his article. He describes extensively his Christmas trip experience—not a good experience—discussing his frustrations due to staff shortages caused by job losses from mandatory vaccinations and COVID restrictions. It’s not just him saying it. The Counter Signal says Lockdown stresses linked to labour shortages which will be filled with immigrantsKelowna airport temporary shut down of food, beverage service ‘unprecedented’ due to lack of staff. After Christmas our daughter flew back to Europe where she currently lives. She had difficulty finding food in Toronto International Airport as most food outlets were closed. Then there is the Mounting pressures: Alberta sees ambulance red alerts, hospital closures, and staff redeployments. Extreme foolishness on the part of government COVID policy is causing this staffing crisis.

As Albert Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results,” and that is what our governments are doing. They continue to lock us down, force us to wear masks, isolate, and shove the vaccines. This is shown with Quebec announces a 3rd booster will be required for vaccine passport and Quebec to impose ‘significant’ financial penalty against people who refuse to get vaccinated. Trudeau plans on vaccinating Canadians 2 to 3 times every year, even as experts denounce his plan. Does he know something we don’t? All these actions, and still Omicron: Infections in Canada exceed total cases for all of 2020. If that isn’t insanity, I don’t know what is.

Most insane is a September 16, 2021 interview with Justin Trudeau where our Prime Minister said this about the unvaccinated. You can watch a clip here.

“We are going to get through the pandemic with vaccinations…there is a part of the population fiercely against it. They are extremists, they don’t believe in science, they’re often misogynists, and also racists…This leads us, as a leader and as a country. to make a choice. Do we tolerate these people?” 

Canada’s leader endorses hatred towards the unvaccinated. In this video, he committed a hate crime (see Canada’s Criminal Code). He is a bully (#bullying, #antibullying).  Canada’s Opposition shockingly silent on PM’s hatred of unvaccinated Canadians, according to Toronto Sun. Also, the UK media pummels Trudeau for rant against “racist, misogynist” unvaxxed. Spencer Fernando says Trudeau’s Dangerous & Dictatorial Rhetoric Is An Appeal To The Worst Aspects Of Human Nature. A New York academic slams Trudeau for dehumanizing the unvaccinated. A Jewish author calls Trudeau “unethical, immoral” and “evil” over comments on unvaccinated. I couldn’t agree more. The Counter Signal comments on The one group of people Canadians openly discriminate against: the unvaccinated. Insanity ensues when a country’s leader promotes hatred toward a group of its citizens.

The Federalist reports Canadian Ronald McDonald House Plans To Evict Unvaxxed in Vancouver revealing “everyone five years and older who are working, staying, or visiting our facilities must show proof of full vaccination.” Ronald McDonald House Charities is a nonprofit organization whose stated mission is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. The family was staying in Ronald McDonald house while their 4-year-old son received treatment for leukemia. I know of a local family who were asked to leave their relative’s house when it was discovered they were unvaccinated. These things would never happen if leaders didn’t pit its citizens against one other by promoting hatred towards the unvaccinated. The most ridiculous headline I recently saw was the UK’s Daily Mail headline,  Wearing a facemask makes you more attractive to the opposite sex, study finds. That folks is extreme foolishness! How can you be attracted to someone when you’re unable to see their face? That’s insanity. Try to convince me otherwise.

When Disconnected, We Fall

As I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) watch the world around me become more divided—something I wrote about in my last blog, United We Stand, Divided We Fall—I become more and more disheartened and saddened. I ask why is this division happening, and American singer and songwriter, David Draiman, provides an answer that makes sense to me. He said, “People who are divided are easier to control.”

The world is moving backwards, and I no longer recognize the country I grew up in. I now live in a country that is medically segregated and is a country where discrimination is accepted as “normal” with the vaccine passports (see Across Canada and Alberta will keep COVID-19 vaccine passport). In Canada, like other countries, the vaccinated are allowed some freedoms, such as eating in restaurants, but the unvaccinated cannot. Businesses are threatened with exorbitant fines if they do not enforce the passports.

Presently Canada, like other nations, is no different than when racial segregation was rule in the United States, a policy that ended in the 1960s. African Americans experienced segregation of facilities, services, and opportunities such as housing, medical care, education, employment, and transportation. Americans of African descent were forced to use separate washrooms and separate water fountains. Segregation was a legally or socially enforced separation based on skin colour.

The acceptance of vaccine passports is no different than South Africa’s policy of apartheid from 1948 to 1994, a policy of segregation and political, social, and economic discrimination against the nonwhite majority in the Republic of South Africa. It is no different than the way Jews were discriminated against under Nazi rule in Germany. In 1935, the Nuremberg Laws stripped Jews of their citizenship, and at the beginning of WWII, the Jewish people were forced to wear the yellow star, inscribed with the word “Jude” (“Jew” in German), as a way to identifying them.

I thought humanity learned from the past, but now in 2021 we are facing a segregated society where hatred is directed towards a certain group of people. This hatred is directed at the unvaccinated; those who have a constitutionally guaranteed right to decide what happens to their bodies, but those rights are being ignored by authorities. We live in a deeply divided country as shown by the Angus Reid Institute who released a report showing growing polarization between Canada’s vaccinated and unvaccinated populations. Segregation and discrimination is amplified by the Mainstream media, as shown in this CTV article, The pandemic is ‘spiraling out of control’ due to unvaccinated people. Vaccine passports are being accepted, like the yellow star, to distinguish the vaccinated from the unvaccinated. Segregation promotes hatred and bullying (#bullying, #antibullying), and diminishes compassion and respect. My wife and I know lots of people who are being cornered daily, and bullied because they chose not to be vaccinated, rather than blindly following authorities. Segregation and discrimination can never be justified!

Martin Luther King, Jr once said:

Segregation…not only harms one physically but injures one spiritually…It scars the soul…It is a system which forever stares the segregated in the face, saying ‘You are less than…”You are not equal to…’

King also said:

To accept injustice or segregation passively is to say to the oppressor that his actions are morally right.

People appear to be accepting the injustice of segregation passively. Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Did Mr. Franklin suggest that safety is an illusion?

Is safety an illusion? Psychology Today’s article, Security is an Illusion, says:

One must come to grips with security being illusory, or at best only temporary. One can enjoy the sense of security, while at the same time keeping in mind that it is an illusion, that the world is chaotic, and that at any time that sense of security may be stripped away.

Is willingly giving up freedom for safety a good idea? Should safety exceed human rights? The truth is, we all want to feel safe, but at what cost? Should civil liberties be given up to feel safe? Should governments have control over what people do with their bodies? Or stop people from travelling freely? Are you willing to live in a police state, or worse under martial law, where the government can deny civil liberties under the banner of keeping you “healthy”?

Nelson Mandela once said, “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” The freedom to choose what enters our bodies is no longer respected as an individual freedom since the vaccine passports severely diminish freedoms for those who wish to control what happens to their bodies.

Woodrow Wilson said, “Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” Are governments, health officials and news media motivated to keep us safe, or do they have an ulterior motive? All I know is something feels terribly wrong. I will always side with those who stood for freedom, even when they felt unsafe, like Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King Jr.

Ana Monnar, founder of Readers Are Leaders U.S.A. says, “Treat other people’s home as you want them to respect yours because what goes around comes around.” The phrase, “what goes around comes around” means that people’s actions ultimately have consequences. What Monnar is really referring to is the Law of Karma or Law of Cause and Effect, a law that says, whatever one puts out into the Universe will come back to them. I can’t help but wonder what will come back to those who embraced segregation and division by passively accepting vaccine passports. The Law of Karma is why there is a Golden Rule, which is, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Or as it says in Matthew 7:12; Luke 6:31 of the Christian scriptures, “All things… that you want men to do to you, you also must do to them.” Everything you do, affects everyone else.

The worldview of many Indigenous Peoples contains the principle of connectivity which says everything in the universe is connected. Connectivity explains the connection people have to their communities, their traditional territories, and the land (source: Indigenous connectivity). This is a view of oneness, meaning, we are all one.

Spiritualists often talk about the Law of One. Wikipedia describes this law:

Simply put, the Law of One is the Universal Truth that All Is One. It is the Truth taught by Christ when he proclaimed, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” We are all direct expressions of the One Source God Source. 

Based on the Ra Material, ‘The Law of One’ states that there is only one, and that one is the Infinite Creator (source: Law of One). As the Indigenous people and spiritualists say ‘everything in the universe is connected,’ so anything you do has an effect—either good or bad—on all others. Perhaps this is what Einstein was saying when he said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

Some would call the energy that Einstein refers to as ‘source energy.” In the article, Seeking Source Energy: In Search of Lost Connectivity, it says

We can call this source energy a spirit, God, a higher power, or the universe, but it is definitely an enlivening current we can feel in our bones. Some may experience it as a vibration, some as stillness, others as a presence. Still others may simply feel totally awake and connected. 

The point I’m making is we are all connected and therefore what we do affects all others. My last post was titled, United We Stand, Divided We Fall, but now I prefer to use what American author and speaker, Jason Shurka, says, “Divided we fall… United we FLY!” When there is disconnection through segregation and discrimination, we fall. When we’re connected through respect, tolerance, and love, we achieve peace and harmony.

J.K. Rowling, author of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, says, “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” Right now, our world is very divided, segregated, and riddled with discrimination, making humanity weak. Unless humankind can find a way to unite, we will fall.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

I (#blogger #blog #somseason #YA #authors) recently read an article that asked the question: What ever happened to “agree to disagree?” It feels like that  is no longer an option. You are either for or against. I’ve never seen the world so divided. I’ve never seen my country so divided. I’ve never seen my province so divided. I’ve never seen my community so divided. I’m retired, but my wife still works, and she has never seen her work place so divided. Never have I seen families, including mine, so divided.

We are at a crossroads! Either we continue down the path we’ve been on for almost two years, a path of divide and conquer, or we can unite in our diversity of opinions and get out of this mess. Whether you are for or against vaccines, it doesn’t matter. When human rights and freedoms are threatened, we have a reason to unite. The way I see it—there will be those that will see it differently—is we are in a fight to be free and sovereign, to be free to choose what is right for our bodies, to have the freedom to be a free thinker, and to be free to disagree with the majority view. The following video says it much more eloquently than I can.

The words of the speaker that resonated most with me were:

“We do have an enemy, but it’s not your co-worker, it’s not your neighbour, or your family member. It is fear. Fear makes cowards of us all. Fear will always drive you to make the wrong decision. Fear blocks our ability to take in and disseminate information effectively. Fear can push us to act in ways we later regret. Fear can paralyze a nation and bring us to our knees in a way like no other….fear is the true foe.”

The inconvenient truth is it is fear that is dividing us. We are being manipulated and indoctrinated by our politicians, our health officials, and the mainstream or Legacy media with propaganda to keep us divided and in fear. That is bullying (#antibullying, #bullying). When divided, we are distracted from what is really going on. Whenever there’s a big story in the media, look for the story they’re trying to distract you from.  As Paulo Coelho, in The Devil and Miss Prym, says “If you want to control someone, all you have to do is to make them feel afraid.” We are being indoctrinated to hate the unvaccinated, just as the Nazis were indoctrinated to hate the Jews. Adolf Hitler, in 1926, did say: “The only stable emotion is hate.” 

I always told my students “that your opinion means nothing unless you can support it,” so here is mine.  Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau says he’s only interested in protecting the freedoms of “those who did the right thing”— and not those “who are risking us all going into further lockdowns.” In another video, he threatens unvaccinated Canadians with medical segregation. Where is the freedom of choice when our leaders decide what is the right thing? Even Legacy Media, the Toronto Sun, says Trudeau, not Kenney, is dividing Canadians, and politicians such as O’Toole says Trudeau ‘dividing the country.’  Trudeau is intentionally promoting hate toward the unvaccinated.

CTV News reports Alberta’s premier, Jason Kenney, stated that due to the escalating COVID-19 situation, which he described as a “crisis of the unvaccinated,” the province would enter into a proof of vaccination program. He too is promoting hate toward the unvaccinated. Kenney goes on to say, “I do not say this to stigmatize people, but we all need to understand that the decision not to get vaccinated is not just a personal choice, it has real consequences for our whole society and for our ability of our hospitals to cope.” That folks, is fear mongering.

Mainstream Media also promotes hatred toward the unvaccinated as in this Global News article, B.C. is in a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated,’ latest modelling numbers show.

The Top medical authority in Alberta says, Unvaccinated Albertans are majority of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths, according to Legacy Media’s CTV News. She too is creating hatred towards the unvaccinated. What’s interesting is there is little reporting by the Legacy media that Israel is struggling with COVID-19, despite high vaccination rates. What lessons can Australia learn? Is it really “a crisis of the unvaccinated? Or, Are we being manipulated and lied to? Rick Warren says, “a lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good, just because it is accepted by a majority.”

The media, governments and health officials are all trying to indoctrinate people to believe the unvaccinated are a threat to the vaccinated. If we are only being told one perspective, or one narrative, then we are being manipulated and controlled. It is not the responsibility of the unvaccinated to protect the vaccinated. That is the vaccines job!

There will be those who will say I’m negative, and call me a Conspiracy Theorist but I prefer the term prophet. A Conspiracy Theorist is the term used to discredit someone who speaks about things people can’t bare to look at because if it were true, it would reveal a darkness in the world that some people are simply not ready to accept.  There will be those who agree government laws are necessary for safety. There are those that say it is necessary to give up our human rights to be safe; that personal choices of others are selfish and need to be regulated. Perhaps selfish is expecting others to surrender their liberties so you can enjoy a false sense of security. I ask you: How many rights are you willing to give up to feel safe? It was Benjamin Franklin who said, “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Thomas Jefferson once said, “He who gives his freedom for safety gets none of them.” But it was Bob Marley who said, “Better to die fighting for freedom than be a prisoner all the days of your life.”

Someone reminded me that the Holocaust was legal and people who hid the Jews were criminals. Slavery was legal and people who freed slaves were criminals. Segregation was legal and people who stood up for equality and justice were criminals. Now vaccine mandates and passports are said to be legal—they’re not because of the Nuremberg Code and the many Human Rights Acts—and those who disagree are said to be the crazy conspiracy theorists and criminals. Our government and laws are not a guide to human decency and morality!

The phrase “United we stand, divided we fall” can be traced back to Aesop.  J.K. Rowling in ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ wrote, “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”  The simple truth is, as Richard Twiss says, “You can’t have unity without diversity.” It is time to choose! Do you want to live in a world of segregation and hate? Or, Do you want to live in a world that is united despite the diversity of opinions? Kofi Annan once said, “We may have different religions, different languages, different coloured skin, but we all belong to one human race,” or as John F. Kennedy once said, “Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.” Kennedy also said, “The unity of freedom has never relied on uniformity of opinion.” Are you willing to live in a world where some individuals are coerced and forced to take a vaccine to keep our jobs, and where we have to show a card to be identified has one of the vaccinated to eat at a restaurant, to shop, or to travel? I don’t. If you do, then you choose a world where we are no longer free. What kind of world do you wish to live in? When Robert Adams said, “There is only one decision you need to make: You are either working at your Freedom or you are accepting your bondage.” That is where humanity is at. What is your choice?

The truth is that humanity is at a crossroads. It does not matter what country you live in, the colour of your skin, or what your beliefs are. This is about whether we want to live in a free world or an enslaved world. This is why freedom rallies, comprised of both the vaccinated and unvaccinated, are erupting around the world as reported—rarely by the Legacy Media—in Tens of thousands take to the streets in “World Wide Rally For Freedom”. This was the fourth round of world wide freedom rallies. The “fake news” (Mainstream Media), if they do report on such events, claim these rallies are just violent anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers as in Australian police clash with anti-lockdown protesters, arrest nearly 270, but that is a whole other blog.

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.
