A Turning Point?

It has been quite some time – years, in fact – that I have been waiting for some speck of light to poke through from the end of the COVID plan-scamdemic tunnel. And perhaps that time is imminent.

Even as we are dyed-in-the-wool PPC (Peoples Party of Canada)/Max Bernier supporters, it has been interesting for Lynn and I to watch the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) leadership race, given the apparent shift-to-the-right the party has taken in recent months under interim leader Candice Bergen. They had previously stooped to new leftist lows under Erin O’Toole, whose views I thought were more consistent with a Liberal cabinet minister than anything remotely ‘conservative’. And speaking of, yet another ‘liberal in sheep’s clothing’ (in the leadership race of all places!) is Jean Charest, who actually governed as Premier of Quebec under the Liberal banner from 2003 to 2012. Go figure…

It would appear at this stage in the race, that Pierre Poilievre is the front-runner, at least among professed conservative voters in the country. We like Roman Baber, as he has been the most consistent true conservative throughout this debacle that has gripped the country. But in the opinion of voters as a whole, the confident and assertive Poilievre is no doubt the most electable of all the candidates.

Having said that, historically, the CPC always shoots itself in the foot when it comes time to elect a leader. Just look at who won the last two contests, and that should tell you all you need to know. Time will tell if they go three-for-three.

In the last few days, to my surprise, there have been rumblings that Trudeau is considering calling yet another election in the coming months. When I first heard this, I thought, ‘no frigging way’.  Why the hell would he? Let’s crawl out on a twig and speculate on the potential reasons:

  • He is losing the support of his fellow globalist WEF alumnus Singh and the NDP. There is no doubt Trudeau’s popularity has plummeted since his declaring the Emergencies Act and the whole truckers’ convoy thing. Perhaps Singh knows his support of Trudeau is rather like remaining on a sinking ship, and has signalled the liberals that he wants a divorce.
  • He is losing the support of  his own cabinet, for reasons similar to the above. Calling an election and losing would be preferable to resigning, and allow him to save face – such as it is.
  • He is afraid of what is going to come out with all of the lawsuits over vaccine passports. We have heard from sources that things are not going so well for him in court. Per Shaun Rickard of Canada Flight Alternatives:

  • He knows about the financial meltdown, food shortages and energy crisis looming ahead, and even though his policies have greatly contributed to them all, he does not want to be left holding the bag when it all comes down.

So initially, I thought we weren’t going to be rid of him for possibly another four years, and could see us all going straight to hell in his hand-basket. But without him and his globalist masters pulling the strings in Ottawa, maybe for Canadians there is just a little ray of light at the end of the tunnel after all . . .

Or at least maybe a less bumpy ride down that hand-basket he left us all in.

Ontario Provincial Election Looms

It’s time once again for prognostication of a political kind.

There is a provincial election in Ontario coming up in less than one week’s time, and I have sinking feelings similar to the ones I had when I predicted both the U.S. and Canadian federal elections some 12 months ago.

(And, if I may toot my own horn, I was correct on both counts.)

So here goes nuthin’.

Many Conservative pundits have predicted a Ford Conservative win. However, during the last two years, actions taken by the so-called pro-business Ford government have resulted in more failures and bankruptcies than at any other time in our history. Sure, you can blame COVID for that, but I do not. I blame our collective over-reaction to this so-called pandemic, the most hideous being the senseless lockdowns and vaccine mandates, neither of which have had any positive outcomes. Quite the contrary, in fact.

The same goes for mask mandates and social distancing. Just look at Florida and Governor DeSantis, where there was none of this destructive nonsense imposed on the people, and compare the numbers. They speak for themselves.

We DID ask the obvious question to our local MPP (and cc’d Mr. Ford), what evidence they had to support the suspension of our basic rights (like informed consent!) and freedoms. But neither offered any, and after sending us the same smug, canned, non-reply they probably sent to everyone else who called them out on it, ignored all subsequent emails from us.

The biggest victims of this scam have been people who have historically voted conservative. It is as though Doug has taken all his orders right from ‘woke’ Ottawa, and the globalist minions who are currently in power there. Do you think all those people who were shuttered and have since become debt slaves will turn around and vote for the same morally bankrupt people who’ve put them in that position? Me thinks . . . NOT.

Other than the REALLY big guys (think corporate, like Walmart, Canadian Tire and Amazon) I can’t for the life of me see any struggling small-business owner voting for the other two major parties, the Liberals and NDP; had they had their way during this scamdemic, things would have been even more tyrannical.

There are a couple of other so-called ‘fringe’ parties who’ve risen up – the Ontario PPC and the New Blue Party, who currently espouse the most core conservative ideals of any, in my opinion anyway. But both have been denied a voice and shut out of the left-leaning mainstream media debates, due to rules that change with virtually every election. Their message is not being heard by the masses, therefore it is doubtful either of these parties will become a factor, other than taking votes away from the Conservatives.

So how will this shake out June 2nd? I (reluctantly) predict a mirror image of what happened in the last federal election. The Liberals will successfully seek out the backing of the NDP, who combined will have won more seats than the Ford Conservatives, and form the next coalition government in Ontario.

And that, in a word or two, is a truly frightening proposition; even more ghastly than another four years under Ford.

I can only pray that I am wrong this time.

A Plea for some sanity

I have written and emailed the following letter to the mayor and councillors of Lambton County, hoping for some push-back against the heavy-handed and oppressive stance that our provincial government is enforcing upon private businesses in Ontario. A motion will be presented and voted on this week.

Dear Sir/Madame,

Greetings – Mike Ward and Lynn Groves here. We were long-time residents of Sarnia until we moved to British Columbia in 2015. We have just moved back to Grand Bend, Ontario this fall to be closer to our children and grandchildren in Sarnia, in these uncertain times.

A motion has been put forward to Lambton County Council that will be discussed and decided on at the November 3rd meeting that, if passed, would have the county request that the Provincial Government of Ontario remove all mandatory requirements to show proof of vaccination across all sectors in Ontario and return Ontario to a place where everyone is treated as equals.

My wife, Lynn Groves and I are very frightened at the prospects of any government mandating that its citizenry submit themselves to taking medications that many doctors and scientists caution against, and that is still technically ‘experimental’. We are therefore fully supportive of this motion.

U.S. VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) data released October 22/21 by the CDC shows a total of 623,343 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 13,627 deaths and 84,466 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and October 15, 2021. It is generally accepted that less than 10% of all adverse reactions are even reported and recorded in this database.

The World Health Organization maintains a more comprehensive global database ‘http://vigiaccess.org/’ of reported potential side effects of medicinal products. Side effects – known technically as adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and adverse events following immunization (AEFIs) – are reported by national pharmacovigilance centres or national drug regulatory authorities that are members of the WHO Programme for International Drug Monitoring (PIDM). I saved the data (PDF format) from October 28, 2021 – you can view the attachment below and draw your own conclusions.

VigiAccess

Where can you see or hear about this in the mainstream media? The truth is that no one knows the long-term effects of these so-called vaccines. And there are many of us who do not wish, and will not allow ourselves to be, experimental subjects for the likes of Pfizer and Moderna.

Vaccine mandates fly in the face of the bedrock ethical principle of informed consent established in the Nuremberg Code. As an adult of reasonably sound mind, I should be allowed sovereignty over my own body, and make my own decision on what medications to take – and conversely, avoid if I believe the benefits do not outweigh the risks.

MY BODY – MY CHOICE.

By putting the onus onto private businesses to enforce these arguably draconian dictates, denying people the right to work and access to goods or services based on their ‘vaccination status’, what is rightly confidential medical information and none of anyone’s business, governments at all levels are turning people against people, a truly underhanded maneuver of getting others to do their ‘dirty-work’ if ever there was one.

If we continue as a society along this dreary path, it won’t be long before those of us who chose to exercise our right to informed consent and who wish to protect our medical confidentiality become second-class citizens. How long before they restrict our access to health care and other necessities of life? It seems the goalposts move further from freedom and closer to tyranny on a weekly if not daily basis.

As for the un-elected health czars behind these dictates who have been handed all-but-absolute authority over our elected representatives, I fear the last thing they want is a ‘return to normal’. They keep changing the rules on us and no doubt will continue to do so until they are stopped, or until our economy is in ruins, our social order is in chaos, and our spirits crushed. To my mind, ceding such authority to people totally unaccountable to the voting public, then coercing private businesses and law enforcement agencies to, in essence, enforce and police these ‘orders’, is unconscionable.

Thank you for your consideration.

The Lady Doth Protest Too Much, Me Thinks

In a recent Blackburn News Sarnia article, Sarnia-Lambton’s Tory MP Marilyn Gladu stated that the People’s Party of Canada kept the Conservatives from winning the 2021 federal election.

First off, I congratulate Marilyn for her successful campaign and wish her all the best, as I know for a fact and from experience that she is a person of integrity and serves her constituents in Sarnia-Lambton well.

However, perhaps Ms. Gladu and other Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP’s and candidates in the 2021 federal election should ask themselves why 5% of the electorate abandoned the Tories for the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) in the first place. I think I may have a pretty good idea.

O’Toole began his campaign for leader by declaring himself a “true blue conservative” who would oppose the Trudeau government’s proposals to confiscate legal firearms from Canadians. Mere weeks after confirming his promise to repeal the Liberals’ May 2020 order-in-council prohibiting over 1500 firearm models and variants, he flip-flopped and said a Conservative government would “maintain the restrictions that were put in place in 2020”; adding a footnote which stated, “All firearms that are currently banned will remain banned.”  Hmm…

In the Conservative leadership race, O’Toole’s platform clearly stated that he would scrap the Trudeau carbon tax and that he would not be interfering with provincial jurisdiction over a federal carbon tax scheme. He even signed the Canadian Taxpayers Federation pledge eschewing a carbon tax. Yet in April, he flip-flopped again, and proposed his own idea of a carbon tax disguised in deliberately misleading language – a “low carbon savings account”. If it looks like a tax, and quacks like a tax, it IS a tax, Mr. O’Toole.

In his leadership campaign, he addressed the very sticky issue of equalization, reassuring Albertans that, “A province with an economy in recession and a skyrocketing unemployment rate should not be forced to send money to other provinces.” Then while in Quebec he put his foot on the soft peddle and only committed two sentences of his platform to equalization, saying “We will add fairness to Equalization by adopting the Equalization and Transfers Fairness Act as a government bill and passing it as quickly as possible. This will add transparency to Equalization.” Hmm.. again.

But perhaps most tellingly, during the leadership race, O’Toole attacked Peter MacKay in an email to his supporters saying that MacKay wouldn’t allow MPs to vote their conscience on moral issues, after MacKay indicated he would expect members of his cabinet to fall in line on such matters. O’Toole vowed to “never whip any Member of Parliament, be they in cabinet or the backbench, on moral issues.”

Well, get ready for the next flip-flop. During the federal election campaign, O’Toole said every Conservative candidate fully backed his platform and that if they didn’t they wouldn’t be allowed to sit as a Conservative MP saying, “If there are candidates who don’t support it—or any other part of Canada’s Recovery Plan—they won’t be sitting in the caucus of a future Conservative government.”

So much for the grassroots supporters of the CPC, whose voices echo mostly from rural ridings.

Before the election took place, Jonas Smith was disqualified as Conservative candidate after voicing opposition to mandatory vaccines in the workplace and the implementation of vaccine passports, a moral issue if there ever was one.

Perhaps after seeing this consistent and incremental shifting to the left, the more traditional wing of the Conservative Party in this country felt abandoned and looked for a REAL Conservative alternative, one whose policies and platform remained consistent throughout this whole entirely unnecessary election process foisted upon us by Mr. Trudeau. And a process with the predictable result – virtually indistinguishable from the previous election.

Isn’t it funny how now, the same media who crucified O’Toole during the election campaign, suddenly loves him and thinks he should hang around for another election or two. He’s a proven loser. If I didn’t know any better, I would say that he was hand-picked to lead the Conservative party by Trudeau himself. But then I remember how effectively the CPC shoots itself in the foot whenever it’s time to pick a leader.

The Conservatives don’t need any help losing an election from the PPC party. They do a pretty good job all by themselves.

To quote Hamlet, “the lady doth protest too much, me thinks.”

~  ~  ~

Postscript November 5, 2021

Bravo to Marilyn Gladu for standing up for the 18 health care workers fired from Bluewater Health for exercising their sovereignty over their own bodies and not disclosing their vaccine status.

“At the beginning of the pandemic, nurses on the front lines were wearing their PPE, there’s no evidence that they transmitted COVID-19 to patients and nobody was vaccinated at that point so I think we really need to look at reasonable accommodations before starting to think about terminating people.”

Credit where credit is due. Thank you Ms. Gladu.

A Federal Election on the horizon?

Yes, here I go again, prognosticating on the political shape of things to come.

Not a pleasant subject for me, being an old white guy and all . . but nonetheless, it is what I feel compelled to do.

Putting on my “Carnac the Magnificent” hat (which will be familiar to you folks old enough to remember Jonny Carson) I gaze into my crystal ball (OK, acrylic..) and this is what I see.

The Trudeau Liberals are currently trying to secure enough support to get their heritage minister, Steven Guilbeault’s Bill C-10 passed. You see, it’s not enough to pay off the CBC’s and CTV’s and convert them into virtual propaganda arms of the government; now they want to control on-line content too.

It sounds like the Bloc Quebecois has come on-side and will support the bill without any amendments, so, along with the unconditional support from Justin’s lap-dog NDP, passage is all but a done-deal. Coincidental to this, Quebec just got a really sweet deal from Trudeau to be the sole province able to amend the Canadian Constitution, even though they were the only province that did NOT sign off on it.

Once Trudeau and his merry band of globalists have this in place, they will be able to muzzle virtually any opposition to their ‘vision’ of what Canada will be, and outlets like True North, Post Millenial and Rebel News will be a thing of the past.

Just recently, at an appearance before the heritage committee during its hearings on internet regulation bill C-10, Justice Minister David Lametti emphasized there are “legitimate” ways in which legislation can infringe the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, including freedom of expression. Does that give you a warm and fuzzy feeling?

So the way I see it, Trudeau is just waiting to get this bill pushed through, so that he has control over not just the mainstream media, but social media as well. Once he can virtually eliminate any dissenting voices by the new powers vested in him, he will call an election and be guaranteed of unanimously positive press coverage leading neatly to his coronation.

The conservatives will certainly do no better than they did with Scheer, in fact I believe they will drop at least 10% if not more like 20 points. I swear that O’Toole is a closet Liberal – it’s as if he was hand-picked to lead the opposition by Justin himself.

The communist — er, Liberal, party will rule in their perpetual alliance with the socialist NDP and the Bloc, for decades to come. Even if the conservatives ran Jesus Christ himself, they will never have enough to beat the combined total from all of the other parties. If there is one thing you can take to the bank, it’s that the Conservatives will always find a way to fall on their swords when they elect a leader.

And most Canadians will go on believing that propaganda agents like the CBC are actually credible unbiased news sources.

I will of course support Maxime Bernier of the PPC – he is the only one talking sensibly as far as I am concerned. However, with current and projected demographics and controlled (or should I say, out-of-control) immigration, the future of such a party looks bleak. All of the talking heads in the mainstream media will continue to vilify him, and most Canadians will fall in, or be intimidated into silence.

I wish I could say that I still have hope for the future of all Canadians, including my progeny, but alas, I cannot seem to find anything optimistic about the direction things seem to be heading in.

Vaccine Passports

I thought readers might be interested in the letter I sent this morning to our local M.P., Mel Arnold; the text of which is copied below.

Those of us who are frightened by the prospect of such governmental over-reach had better speak up now, or we may as well forever hold our peace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Greetings Mr. Arnold, Mike Ward from Tappen here.

Below is a quote from our P.M. from The Post Millenial regarding his intentions regarding ‘vaccine passports’:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sounded committed to the idea of a vaccine passport for incoming travellers, but added that implementing the idea would require cooperation from like-minded countries.

“We’re still very much in a third wave, we still need to get more and more people vaccinated across this country and get those numbers down. However, we also know that as people start to travel again – perhaps this summer if everything goes well – it would make sense for us to align with partners around the world on some sort of proof of vaccination or vaccine certification,” said Trudeau.

“We are now working with allies, particularly in Europe on that. But, ultimately, it is up to every country to determine what requirements they expect from incoming travellers.”

Implementing any sort of vaccine passport is in direct contravention of the Nuremberg Code (1947) which I believe Canada was signatory to, a portion of which I quote below, my emphasis added:

The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs, or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.

No Canadian citizen should be forced or coerced into taking these experimental ‘vaccines’ in order to enter freely back onto their native soil. Please stand against any such draconian measure as you represent the interests of your constituents in Parliament.

Thank you and best regards.

The Death of Free Speech

Of all the cornerstones a free society needs to survive, freedom of the press – and free flow of information among its citizenry – ranks right up there. And its polar opposite, censorship, no matter how insidiously it is cloaked, is one that should be feared most vehemently.

In several of my previous blog posts, I have vented about the state of the fifth estate in the so-called ‘free’ countries – especially the two I am most familiar with, the U.S. and of course Canada, where the CBC is to my mind a virtual propaganda arm of the Liberal government.

Regardless of one’s political leanings (and I make no secret or apologies for mine) one should be troubled when all of the mainstream journalists seem to be lined up in agreement with the narrative dictated from upon high. This never used to be the case.

When I grew up, we got most of our ‘news’ from newspapers; and to a lesser extent, television and radio. In the fifties and sixties, before the days of the internet, there were many independent newspapers, and the decisions of what ‘made the news’ was made at the local level, as was editorial discretion.

The editorial page was always my go-to (after reading about how well the Leafs did last night, that is) and I enjoyed the wide array of opinions expressed from the citizenry – many of whom were well versed and concise in expressing their viewpoint on this or that particular subject, whether or not one was in agreement with their views. There were almost always opinions expressed on both sides of every argument – from editorial writers, and readers alike. I believe that is what kept our politicians in line with at least some of the promises they made to get elected. And to see an error in grammar or spelling was a rare exception, not the rule.

My children did not grow up in a world like that, so they never really knew what that world – almost utopian compared to what is the new normal now – even looked like.

Much of what television offered back in the 1960’s was admittedly pretty corny, but there were some gems. Everyone of my generation remembers Walter Cronkite – and the look of disgust in his eyes when he was reporting something he suspected was disinformation, or reprehensible like the Kennedy and Martin Luther King assassinations. Lee Oswald even got his ten seconds of fame when he stated in prime time ‘I didn’t shoot no one’ and begged for legal representation on the air. But a scene like that would never see the light of nightly news now, unless it fit neatly into ‘the narrative’.

Funny thing is, I actually believed him (I was only 7) and fifty years later came to learn that my convictions at the time were probably right on, from reading books like Jim Marrs ‘Crossfire’ and Judyth Vary Baker’s ‘Me and Lee’ among others.

Today, there are only a handful of media companies that own virtually everything – including opinion itself, apparently. And with very few exceptions, they all parrot the same narrative of the day. In Canada, the federal Liberal government blatantly funds news organizations like they do any other branch of government – the CBC of course, but also all of the others who faithfully toe the line like CTV and Global. They gorge themselves at the public purse, and gush over the Liberal government that keeps topping up their financial feed-bags.

Independent news outlets (and yes there are still a few) like Rebel News, True North, the Post Millenial receive absolutely nothing from the Feds, and are thus not competing on an even playing field with the federally-funded the big boys. And if they dare to expose inconvenient truths they are ‘de-platformed’ by the Amazon/Facebook/Google gods, and de-funded by YouTube, depriving them of the bulk of their revenue stream in a blatant attempt to starve them out. Their demise is only a matter of time. Legislation on ‘hate-speech’ soon to be tabled by those Liberals, will effectively mute any dissenting opinion.

The U.S. fares only slightly better, but with same leftist slant in the majority of them – CNN, CNBC, CBS, and ABC. I gave up on all of them – and network television – decades ago. See the most recent exposé where CNN director Charlie Chester admits their ‘news’ is propaganda from projectveritas.com.

After Parler – a social media site that threatened NOT to censor people whose opinions got them banned from Facebook, was cut down at the knees by Google and Amazon, I knew that those of us who were rightly skeptical of the propaganda we’ve been spoon-fed by our leaders, were in deep shit.

Now, corporations are bigger than countries. They are global in nature, and subscribe to none of the ethics that a free society holds dear. Globalist interests have infiltrated our governments, and unelected bureaucrats taking their marching orders from the U.N. and World Health Organization have been placed in positions of authority as so-called ‘health tzars’ and are the driving force behind the totally unjustified, overbearing and devastating lock-downs that are killing our spirit, our hope, our sanity and our economy. The logical end is that all of us in the prime of our working lives will eventually become debt-slaves – and The Great Reset comes galloping on a White Horse to save us all (or maybe just some of us) from our demise. Welcome to the New Feudalism, 14th century-style.

Private business and free enterprise are the anchors of any free society – and they are going under at an alarming rate; while the likes of Amazon and Google and Facebook are raking in obscene profits and are the primary reason the stock market is so high. The saying that what is good for Wall Street is bad for Main Street has never been more appropriate than it is today under Covidism. If the middle class was on life support before, it is practically DOA now.

If there is one thing (of many) that this situation we find ourselves in today has taught us, it is that there is no longer any such thing as a sovereign state. Remember COVID-denying and populist President Magufuli of Tanzania – the guy who sent samples of a goat, a sheep, a papaya and motor oil to the WHO for COVID testing, three of which came back positive – and was then deposed in a coup (at the gentle urging of the globalist CFR) and showed up dead two weeks later? And then there’s always that sitting President of the U.S. who was ‘deplatformed’ by Twitter before he’d even left office.

Those who have the gold rule now, more that they ever have in the past. The gap between the richest and the rest of us has never been wider – and by many orders of magnitude.

We all know the saying  “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely”. And that does not bode well for any of us, regardless of where on the globe we live.

“We made a mistake”

“We Made A Mistake”: Peel Health Apologizes for Advising Parents to Confine Children

A mistake? No kidding!

Imagine confining your asymptomatic 7-year old child to their room – even forced to eat alone and deprived of any human contact – for fourteen days. What kind of so-called ‘Health Care’ agency advocates and knowingly inflicts that sort of mental torture on young families?

That is what we are up against, folks.

“I don’t understand how any health-care professional has moved so far away from the fundamentals of public health and of doing no harm that they would think that basically incarcerating a child in a room for 14 days is in any way justified,” Dr. Fulford said.

(Quoted from linked article at the beginning)

It took positive action from the Brampton mayor Patrick Brown – speaking out against this draconian and totally unnecessary measure – to get them to back down.

The real question, and one that will likely go unanswered, remains: Where did such a directive originate? And who among the municipal and medical officials simply rubber-stamped it and otherwise went along with it, to the extent that flyers were widely distributed through the region?

More of us need to speak out against actions like these perpetrated by unelected bureaucrats, as well as by many of our misguided elected representatives – or our ‘free’ society, standard of living, and all that we hold dear will continue to spiral down toward a hellish end.

Looking at the Ontario Government’s own numbers from March 1st, Peel Region is second only to Thunder Bay in COVID case incidence in the population-at-large, at just less than 14 cases per 100,000 people. Put into perspective, in this ‘High-community risk level’ zone, you have a 0.014% chance of even contracting COVID, let alone getting sick from it. And of those few who indeed are infected, you have an overall 99% survival rate (unless of course you’re over 80 and immune-compromised).

Yet half the population is rushing out to get the ‘vaccine’, and we have sent untold numbers of private businesses into bankruptcy; peoples’ lives and dreams shattered beyond repair. And nothing but fear-porn from the mainstream media, steering the direction of public opinion and ridiculing any dissenting voices.

Someone needs to be accountable for what happened in Peel Region, and for what is happening in way too many other regions and municipalities across Canada.

There are a LOT of mistakes being made in this country of ours. And no end in sight.

This Land

I am really beginning to wonder if this land is my land any more.

It seems we have entered a new dark age, where the control of the information we are allowed to read or hear is concentrated in very few hands. The federal Liberal government financially supports (read – bribes) their darling left-wing media to such an extent that  outlets like the CBC are little more than a propaganda arm of that government; while conservative news organizations like True North, Rebel News and The Post Millennial get nothing. How long do you think the CBC would last if they had to survive on their own merit?

Small local businesses are bearing the brunt of the lock-downs, while big corporate businesses like Walmart, Costco, and of course Amazon are still going as strong or stronger than ever. In Manitoba you can’t go to a bricks-and-mortar store to buy a coat for your kid – but you can order as many as you like from Amazon.

Private business is the anchor of a free society. Without them we have no economy, and we all become slaves to the corporatocracy. This is what is happening in Canada right now.

One man who defied the lock-down, Adam Skelly, owner of Adamson Barbeque in Etobicoke, was arrested and his restaurant boarded up. Many of his customers showed up to support him, but an armada of police – some on horseback – surrounded his establishment to maintain order. Heavy-handedness like this was never deployed for Antifa and BLM protests.

The conditions of his bail include him staying 200 meters away from any of his three businesses (I don’t know what the other two are or how relevant to the whole COVID plandemic they are), and – get this – he is not allowed to use, post or communicate on social media!

Are we living in Communist China ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

He is being censored and silenced, plain and simple. Right or wrong, they don’t want his message to get out. Is this the Canada that I once knew?

Organizers were planning to hold a demonstration at Queen’s Park today, November 28th, in support of Adam and in opposition to the draconian measures being foisted on the citizenry of Ontario. One of the guest speakers was supposed to be Ryan Kulbaba of British Columbia. Remember him? He was the one who protested the mask policy on B.C. Ferries a few weeks ago. He bought a plane ticket on Air Canada and was supposed to fly to Toronto on the 27th but was detained by security and denied entry onto the plane. They claimed it was because they thought he wasn’t going to wear a mask (he has a medical exemption which gives him that legal right) and was going to endanger passengers on the airplane. But I doubt that was the real reason they didn’t want him to get on that plane. He posted about his experience on social media this morning, but by mid-day he had been censored too, and his video became inaccessible.

In my opinion, they wanted to silence him too – and not allow him the opportunity to deliver his message to whoever showed up at the Toronto event, and subsequently preventing him from even talking about the experience on his facebook page.

This land is not the land I grew up in, nor the land of my father and grandfather before him. That land has been taken from us. If they were still around and could see what is happening, and the direction things are headed, they would be furious. And most of that fury would probably be directed at all those people who say nothing, and think all of this is just being done ‘for our own good’.

We have squandered the freedom our forefathers fought and died for. If we continue to sit idly by, wallow in our fear, and swallow the claptrap the mainstream media is feeding us, future generations are doomed.

The next time I leave this land, what was once my land, it may indeed be the last.

A Post-Mortem Bucket List

I know a lot of folks in my age group start to assemble ‘bucket lists’. We all know what they are; they’re the things we want to do and experience before we leave this earthly plain.

We make all these plans for the disposal of our physical remains, so those left behind can carry out and hopefully afford the exorbitant expense of our final arrangements. (Well, some of us do, anyway.) But have you ever thought about what you might like to do after you’re gone?

At the risk of sounding melodramatic – or of spouting off a bunch of religious doctrine from the myriad of faiths out there – here are some of the things I might focus on. That is, if there really is any kind of life-after-death. Folks who’ve had near-death experiences (you can read many accounts just like this one, from Psychology Today) for the most part no longer fear death; in fact, they often look forward to it. It can’t be all that bad now, can it?

So, folks, strap yourself in – this bantering is all in good fun, I promise.

First thing I’d do when and if I get there, is look up John Lennon; and hopefully my arrival at the pearly gates precedes Yoko’s. I never spent enough time in life to really listen to his stuff, and for some reason, his words resonate with me now more than ever.

After hobnobbing and hanging with him for a cup of tea and – no doubt – some interesting dialogue, I’d look up Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I bet they’re jamming-up-a-storm somewhere; and I would just love to see them do a guitar dual over Voodoo Child. I bet the back-up musicians would be awesome too! Think of Bob Berg on the soprano sax and Coltrane on the tenor, and maybe toss in a little bass from Jaco Pastorius. Very Coolsville!

While I’m in the music department, I’d find Janis Joplin and just give her a big hug. She didn’t get a lot of love in this world from anyone, not even her own parents; and I’d be shocked if she ever wanted to come back and do it all over again.

Louis Armstrong is near and dear to me – one of so many great jazz musicians of the fifties and sixties – when my aunts were young, they used to hang out at his place, and he even joked that he wanted to adopt them. I believe they became life-long friends; and few humans that graced this planet were more loving than Satchmo.

I’d definitely want to take a can of bear spray along, just in case I happened to run into Genghis Khan or … George Soros (I know, he’s not dead yet, but I’m hoping it will be any day now). And I’d also want a slingshot in case I bumped into Goliath – but maybe after a few thousand years he’s had time to mellow.

While I’m in the biblical borough, I wouldn’t mind checking in on old Gilgamesh – and going over that epic of his again, assuming that up there, we all magically speak the same language again. I doubt very much there was a ‘Tower of Babel‘ moment up there, confusing and dividing the few thousand resident souls by giving them all different languages.

And by gosh, those incredibly stunning rock structures at Baalbek in Lebanon and the great pyramid of Giza are a great mystery to me – I would love to try and find somebody (you would think I could find someone honest from that epoch in time up there, after all, it is heaven..) who could tell me how all those massive stones were carved to machine-like precision and lifted into place. There is so much fraud (and always has been) in the ‘scientific’ field of Archaeology, I don’t believe much of the claptrap those dudes make up.

If it’s really heaven, there won’t be any shortages of anything, and Amazon can go straight to you-know-where. We shouldn’t need any toilet paper, sani-wipes or masks up there now, should we?

Fast forward to the present (in geologic terms, anyway) there are three individuals I would dearly love to talk to. The first is Rudolph Hess. This is all eighty-year old stuff now, so if you are not as captivated by WW II history as I am, just skip down a couple of  paragraphs.

Hess was Deputy Führer – or #2 man behind Adolf Hitler from 1933 to 1941 (relatively early in the war) – when he miraculously flew solo to Scotland (which would have been practically impossible with the air defenses in place), supposedly either ‘defecting’ from Nazi Germany, or to present a peace offering to Churchill. The Brits had to have known he was coming, and let him in. And, arguably, someone in the Nazi hierarchy had to have known about his ill-conceived plan as well. It didn’t turn out all that well for him, that’s for sure.

The most interesting historical account of events, and end-of-the-twig speculation I’ve read is ‘Hess and the Penguins’ by Dr. Joseph Farrell. I don’t know if his book is still in print, but I have a copy. They never let that poor guy out of solitary confinement; he was ultimately the lone tenant of Spandau Prison in West Berlin, and eventually died (or was murdered?) in 1987 at the ripe old age of 93.

Even in the late 1980’s, his secrets were way too sensitive for the post-war powers (Great Britain, the U.S. and the Soviet Union – all three taking turns guarding the old man) to risk revealing; according to someone way up there, anyway.

Another guy I’d really like to chat with is Danny Casolaro. He was meeting a ‘source’ at a hotel in West Virginia while investigating a story he referred to as “The Octypus” where he was later found dead in his hotel room bathtub with ’10 to 12 slashes in his wrists’. He sure must have pissed some pretty big dogs off. His death was, if you can swallow it, declared a suicide. That was way back in 1991, so I imagine he’s pretty much over it now and can probably talk about what he knew – secrets he took to his grave.

And what would a trip to heaven be without a visit with Marylin Monroe. She would be such fun to talk to – and I sure would like to know about the circumstances surrounding her demise as well. Some say she was one of many of Kennedy’s lovers who learned of forbidden things during one or more pillow-talk sessions, and paid the ultimate price. Others still insist that she died of a drug overdose.

I bet that close by Marylin’s place I would likely find one other person I would just die to talk with – Dorothy Kilgallen.  She was a journalist back in the 50’s and 60’s who was publicly skeptical of the conclusions of the Warren Commission‘s report about the assassination of President Kennedy and Jack Ruby‘s shooting of Lee Oswald; and she wrote several newspaper articles on the subject and even published a copy of Jack Ruby’s testimony  to the Warren Commission in multiple newspapers of the time, before it had been ‘officially’ released. No wonder she was ‘suicided’. We don’t have many journalists of her caliber and courage around any more.

I think all of that should get me through the first month or so up there, anyway. It’s admittedly a pretty heavy dance card. But what with all of the shenanigans going on – almost worldwide – over this COVID plandemic, maybe things up there are a helluva lot better than they are down here. So, I’m making my list, just in case I get that ‘last call’!
