Canada Establishes Draconian International Travel Restrictions

Canada launches draconian travel restrictions, including quasi-concentration camp confinement for International travellers.

Published

on

Yesterday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a new set of draconian — some say fascistic  — restrictions on international travellers. All travel to Mexico, the Caribbean, and other hot spots has been banned until April 30. All returning international travellers need to take a test, and be housed in a designated hotel for 3 days, at their own expense, which will be up to $2000 per person. If the test is negative, they will be allowed to go home, where they must quarantine for a further 14 days, subject to random home checks by government agents with the power to issue huge fines and even arrest those deemed to be in violation. If they test positive, they will be taken to an isolation facility where they will be housed for a minimum of 14 days. Trudeau has said that this is all being done for “public safety” and “your own good”.

Given that the creator of the test has said that it is unreliable, and should not be used as a Covid test, because it delivers a false result at least 50% of the time, this is very scary. For those of us, like myself, who have come from countries ruled by totalitarian regimes, this is raising huge alarm bells. Totalitarian governments have always used “public safety” and doing things for “your own good” as an excuse for further erosions on the rights and freedoms of the people over whom they rule.

Civil libertarians are calling this edict Orwellian and quasi-fascistic. If you have read Animal Farm and 1984, these actions could have been torn from the pages of those books. Comrade Napoleon and Big Brother would be very proud. Frankly, they would applaud the ingenuity involved in coming up with these measures and making them sound so benign.

The isolation facilities are eerily similar to concentration camps in places like Nazi Germany. The $2000 fee to house travellers in government designated hotels is reminiscent of Saddam Hussein charging families for the cost of imprisoning and executing his political opponents, when he was the dictator of Iraq.

This edict is a definite violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which ironically was championed by Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau, during his tenure as Prime Minister in 1982. Freedom of movement and of travel is enshrined in the Charter.  Many campaigners for civil rights are sounding the alarm, and readying lawsuits to challenge the government and its actions.

None of the other major parties in Canada are in any way pushing back against this latest assault on the rights and freedoms of the Canadian people. This is very puzzling, because there is a very real undercurrent of dissatisfaction with and resistance to the Covid lockdowns and restrictions. Covid fatigue is a real thing. A smart politician with the right messaging, could ride this issue alone to a smashing victory over Trudeau and his Liberals. But that would take guts and real leadership, and unfortunately, there is very little of either currently in Canadian politics.

For now, it is just another nail in the coffin of the rights and freedoms of the strong and free people of the True North.

The 90-year Shame of the New York Times

Despite its constant lies, propaganda, and censorship, the New York Times is regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’

Published

on

The New York Times deliberately buried the story known as the Terror-Famine, in 1932 and 1933, which astoundingly killed 3.9 to 7.0 million Ukrainians, at least one out of every eight people, perhaps one out of every four people.

The editors at the Times were well aware that the famine was orchestrated by Joseph Stalin who forbade outside food and aid shipments, confiscated household food items, and restricted the mobility of Ukrainian citizens.

What made Stalin do this to a region known as “the world’s breadbasket”? He sought to punish independence-minded Ukrainians, quash anyone who represented a threat to his totalitarian government, and vanquish Ukraine’s small farms in favor of Soviet state-run collectives. Stalin lost no sleep over the legions of emaciated bodies, near death, scratching for any morsel of food they could find.

Maniacal and Mendacious

Why did The New York Times bury this heart-wrenching, world-shaking story? Then, as now, their leftist bent was so intense and so all-encompassing that they couldn’t help themselves. The blunt truth is that they do not care who is hurt as long as socialist/Marxist/communist ideology prevails on earth.

In another 10 years, it will be at least 100 years since the Times and other heavily left-leaning organizations, which today comprise the highly biased ‘mainstream media,’ have been dominant.

In 2121, one hundred years from now, is it realistic to believe that the facade which the mainstream media has foisted on Americans and on free people around the globe will not continue to dominate?

Will their maniacal ideology, somehow, finally be exposed by some new form of information dissemination or some fundamental shift in media coverage?

Sheeple at the Trough

Just how biased and detrimental their slanted news coverage has been to humanity, globally, is difficult to fathom. For decades on end, when you prop up socialist, Marxist, or communist regimes, are you helping anyone?

The mainstream media has held a news and information monopoly for so long, so skillfully, that the facade is not remotely understood by those in its spell, and bitterly denounced by those who see the mainstream press for what it really is. In the long run, truth generally prevails.

Even today, after five years of attempting to prove it, not a shred of evidence indicates that Donald Trump, his administration, or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Still, you have Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and all the other dolts in Congress who will readily appear on TV and spew lies. They play the ‘talking head’ game with sympathetic hosts and continue the guise, holding sway over those who don’t know how to find out the truth.

A Stranglehold for the Ages

The stranglehold that the Left and the mainstream media has on humanity leads to some intriguing philosophical questions. Even before the mass media came into being, has there always been some entity that enforced its will upon the unwitting masses?

Throughout history, dictators and other rulers imposed their version of the truth on the unwitting masses. Even in societies where news and information was somewhat freely exchanged, has there always been a faction that sought to slant reality and the will of others? It seems likely.

In the 21st century, roughly half of the U.S. and roughly half of the globe are still subject to Leftist manipulation. Despite all the information sources that exist today, why does so much of the world still fall for obviously manufactured and manipulated news?

How can people keep tuning in to CNN or MSNBC, or for that matter the nightly news on ABC, NBC, or CBS? How many times does CBS have to be caught red-handed doctoring the news, slanting stories on 60 Minutes, and laying traps for people like Governor Ron DeSantis, only to be exposed?

And then, within a matter of days, having learned nothing, CBS reverts right back to more of their insidious ways of presenting information.

Living with Perpetual Lies

How often can The New York Times offer a story the latter proves to be completely untrue, and its editors knew was untrue at the time, and yet its readership is unfazed?

How can the Times continue to be regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’? What tidal wave of human understanding, once and for all, needs to occur before we universally recognize highly biased reporting sources for what they are?

In the U.K., news publications openly advocate a position, left or right, and don’t play pretend. Consumers understand the bias that each media outlet or newspaper maintains, can read articles, and judge them accordingly.

In the U.S., the mainstream press continues to push lie that they offer an objective, balanced view of what’s happening in the world. How can they continue to do this? Sadly, enough fools buy what they say… lock, stock, and barrel.
