Update from Christian Free Speech Warrior & Political Prisoner, Bill Whatcott

Whatcott update, August 10, 2020

Post

by Bill Whatcott » Mon Aug 10, 2020 2:20 pm Dear Friends,

My lawyer John Rosen just finished the latest pre-trial conference for my so-called “hate crime” charge today. The “hate crime” is now over four years old. Since then the civil $104 million lawsuit that was commenced with much drama (see the drama here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAosD7J7cuw&t=54s) immediately after my Gospel infiltration of the Toronto unGodly pride parade has been dropped as of late last year. The criminal hate crime charge remains ongoing and now as of today Justice Goldstein has set the tentative trial date for my “hate crime” trial for Monday, October 4, 2021.

One could be forgiven if by now they forgot the Gospel stunt that I pulled off that made the homosexual activists so mad that nearly 5 years after the fact they still want me in jail for 18 months for raining (in a Godly sort of way) on their parade. For those who forgot or who don’t know about this redemptive, creative, and definitely not hateful act of truth telling activism, here it is: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10526&p=26007#p26007

As for other news not much has been going on in my life. Being out on bail for the past 2 years has its limitations. I had to turn my passport in, so that precludes travel outside of Canada. Now with the advent of the Chinese Communist Party virus travel is shut down for most of the world and Canadians can’t travel abroad anyways.

Then there is the economic fallout from the lockdown and virus protocals being imposed on businesses across Canada and the world. The unfortunate thing about outstanding criminal charges is even though you are “presumed innocent” until proven guilty, in actual fact the police reveal outstanding charges to your potential employers during background checks when you apply for a job and the presumption of innocence bafflegab aside, most employers decline to hire people with outstanding charges. When this sort of thing goes on for years it is quite limiting, especially when the unemployment rate is in the double digits as it is in Canada right now thanks to our corrupt and incompetent government destroying our resource and manufacturing sectors , before the economic hammering brought on by the Chinese Communist Party virus lockdowns and layoffs.

That being said, I have been blessed these last few months to be putting in 20-30 hour work weeks with a temp agency. Ten years ago that would be considered extremely marginal, but today many Canadians with no outstanding criminal charges are out of work and would love to have a 20-30 hour a week minimum wage job. How times have changed!

Indeed times have changed, in fact I believe Canada has fundamentally changed. The freedom and prosperity we took for granted is gone. Thanks to our Liberal government colluding with foriegn NGOs to sabotage Canada’s oil sands, what was once the largest employer in Canada’s resource industry, the oil sands is largely destroyed now. Conventional oil, mining, lumber, etc…. are also almost dead. There are no jobs in any of these sectors.

Eastern Canada’s manufacturing base is also largely gone. Without manufacturing or resources there simply is no means of wealth creation to keep handing out government cheques, so with that in mind the CERB payments are ending next month and literally millions of Canadians will be off CERB and will still be out of work with no prospects of economic recovery coming in the near future.

We could blame the Liberal government for this mess and indeed they deserve alot of the blame. Their carbon taxes, other taxes and onerous; I would even say malicious, regulations have ruined our nation’s oil industry years before the CCP virus reached our shores. We could also blame the Chinese Communist Party as the virus they covered up and allowed to spread around the world has had a catastrophic effect on our economy and quality of life. Had the CCP warned the world earlier that this virus escaped from their lab (more probable than wet market) and declined to vacuum up all our PPE before we knew what was going on, we could have been better prepared and mitigated much of the suffering we are now experiencing thanks to the pandemic. However, I believe there are deeper issues at play in Canada’s repid demise.

For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:14

I believe God has removed His blessing from our land and it is He who is allowing wicked governments such as the Canadian Liberals and Chinese Communist Party to harm us.

Canada has murdered more than 3 million unborn children by abortion. We have murdered thousands of elderly and disabled through euthanasia. We are allowing our children to be switched to the gender they are not but are not and are allowing children to march in homosexual parades but we won’t allow them to recite the Lord’s prayer in our schools. We have rejected God’s Word and embraced instead homosexual perversion and socialism, so now it is not surprising to me that the land is starting to suffer under God’s judgment in tangible ways.

Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land;
but if you refuse and rebel,
you shall be eaten by the sword;
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Isaiah 1:18-20

I believe God in His great mercy can forgive us of our sin and turn back the judgment on our land if we repent and turn to Him. I know in my own life I have suffered both tremendous loss because of my sun and experienced tremendous, undeserved, grace and forgiveness when I repented, confessed, and turned away from my sin. I believe on a national level these same principles hold true for Canada. I would strongly encourage Canada’s Christians to start to fast and pray for our land. Even if it is too late to turn back the judgement, perhaps with a bold witness some souls could be snatched from the coming fire.

“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:13, 14

Do you use any of the following:

  • Windows as your computer’s operating system.
  • Internet Explorer or Edge as your browser.
  • Bing as your search engine.
  • Outlook for your email.
  • Word as your writing software.

If you do, recently you probably received an email notification from Microsoft about changes to their Services Agreement, just in time for the 2020 election.

But most of you probably didn’t click on the link to read Microsoft’s new Services Agreement. You should, because contained in the Services Agreement is this: 3. Code of Conduct. take our poll – story continues below

  • Should the Government be Mandating Masks?  

a. By agreeing to these Terms, you’re agreeing that, when using the Services, you will follow these rules:

  • vii. Don’t engage in activity that is harmful to you, the Services or others (e.g., transmitting viruses, stalking, posting terrorist or violent extremist content, communicating hate speech, or advocating violence against others).
  • viii. Don’t infringe upon the rights of others (e.g., unauthorized sharing of copyrighted music or other copyrighted material, resale or other distribution of Bing maps, or photographs).
  • ix. Don’t engage in activity that violates the privacy of others.
  • x. Don’t help others break these rules.

b. Enforcement.If you violate these Terms, we may stop providing Services to you or we may close your Microsoft account. We may also block delivery of a communication (like email, file sharing or instant message) to or from the Services in an effort to enforce these Terms or we may remove or refuse to publish Your Content for any reason.

Nowhere does the Services Agreement even remotely define what “hate speech” or what “help others break these rules” means.

As an example, if I call Microsoft “tyrannical,” is that “hate speech”? If I, as I had, point out that Microsoft’s co-founder Bill Gates had said on four occasions that vaccines would reduce world population, is that “hate speech”? And if, having read this post, a reader post a comment criticizing Microsoft, am I “helping” others to “communicate hate speech”?

Trending:

Not defining these critical terms, the violation of which can trigger Microsoft’s termination of its services, means that Microsoft can call “hate speech” and “helping others break these rules” whatever they want.Given the vagueness of its Services Agreement, how are we to conduct ourselves so as not to violate the terms of the agreement?

Thousands rally in downtown Montreal to protest Quebec mask rules

[And in other widely under-reported rallies in Toronto, & Vancouver & elsewhere Canadian freedom fighters are saying: NO COMPULSORY MASKS, NO NEW POLICE STATE” NORMAL & END THE LOCKDOWN NOW!]

[Broad spectrum of motivations and ideologies present; few wore masks

CBC News · Posted: Aug 08, 2020 4:47 PM ET | Last Updated: 19 minutes ago

Protesters chanted “liberté” as they marched from the main gates of McGill University on Sherbrooke Street to the CBC/Radio-Canada building on René-Lévesque Boulevard. (Jean-Claude Taliana/Radio-Canada)

Thousands of demonstrators marched through downtown Montreal Saturday to protest against the Quebec government’s mandatory mask regulations.

The protesters — the vast majority of whom did not wear masks — carried signs and wore t-shirts indicating a variety of motivations and ideologies in opposition to face coverings.

Some demanded freedom, some were critical of the Coalition Avenir Québec government, Premier François Legault or public health director Dr. Horacio Arruda, and others espoused various theories about COVID-19 and U.S. politics.

“I find it illogical,” said Nathalie Warren, who travelled from Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que. for the protest.

“Say we go into a restaurant,” she said. “We walk in wearing a mask, because, what, COVID is there? Then we sit down and we can take the masks off because, what, the COVID is gone?”

Under the government’s regulations, masks are mandatory in restaurants when clients are moving around because it is harder to maintain a physical distance from others in those instances, provincial health authorities have said. When a client is seated, they may remove their mask as long as they are at a two-metre distance from others. 

“We want our liberty. We want the right to say yes to a vaccine. We want the right to decide. It’s our life, it’s our bodies, it’s up to us,” said Warren. 

“I’m not OK with children going to school wearing masks, and physical distancing,” said Irène Sarmiento. “It makes no sense. The children aren’t to blame. The population is being abused.”

So far, the Quebec government has not made masks mandatory for students heading back to school

There were frequent spontaneous chants of “liberté” as the march wound from the main gates of McGill University on Sherbrooke Street to the CBC/Radio-Canada building on René-Lévesque Boulevard. Montreal police surveyed the event from motorcycles and bicycles.

At previous anti-mask protests in the province over the last month or so, demonstrators argued that mandatory mask rules are not fair and that the threat of COVID-19 is not as serious as is being reported.

On Saturday, some people made a show of embracing each other or exchanging double-cheek kisses.

In the past, the Quebec government has said that people are allowed to protest. On July 27, responding to protests the previous weekend, Deputy Premier Geneviève Guilbault said there would be “consequences” if there continued to be incidents where people “transgress the rules of public health.”  

“It has nothing to do with taking away anyone’s right to protest or express themselves,” Guilbault said. “It’s obvious that anybody can protest. But nobody has the right to put anyone else’s health in danger.”

Melbourne, Australia — Corona Police State

Melbourne, that glorious city in the state of Victoria in Australia, granted me some of the best travel days of my life during two separate trips each lasting a full week.


A happy, civilized, highly educated people are here living amidst modern architecture, inspiring bridges, and natural beauty, a place where even the police are kind, and when you ask them for directions they reply with a smile, and when you say thank you, they say “No worries.”
Now there are big worries in Melbourne.

andrews.jpg

The Premier has imposed a vicious police state without precedent in this country’s history. His name is Dan Andrews (a sweet-sounding name that masks the tyrant he has become), and he tweets out pictures of empty streets to brag about what he has achieved in the name of suppressing a virus.


Tacitus’s line about the Roman empire comes to mind: “Where they make a desert, they call it peace.”


Australia is the only country in the world that has a law that people can’t be mean to each other. Now it is host to one of the world’s meanest governments.


The catastrophe began with a spring lockdown before there were any cases of C-19 and much fewer deaths. The ethos in Australia was one of extreme exclusion and suppression of the virus, not as bad as New Zealand but pretty bad. The rest of the world can catch this disease, but Australia would use its geographical isolation and political intelligence to ban the virus. The virus will be in awe and know to stay away forever.


It’s not a good theory because that’s not how viruses work.
Still, it seemed to work, at first. That’s because the virus had yet to arrive.
When the virus did arrive, the futility of the suppression strategy was revealed.


Melbourne had set up quarantine hotels for people arriving from abroad or returning from cruises. They would spend 14 days in isolation to purge themselves of possible infection. Then all would be okay. There was a problem: the wily virus escaped.


As a result, a nation’s pride in having suppressed the virus turned to panic and full lockdown. Internal borders are sealed. And Melbourne has become a living hell, not because of the virus (which is still mild) but because of the unleashing of a hellish police state.

(left, a billboard in Melbourne)
A friend summarized the situation for me:
+Police may now enter anyone’s home without a warrant. 
+Curfew 8:00pm. 
+ $1,652 fine if outside without “a valid reason” – an amount being raised by the day 
+ Can’t visit any family or friends. $200 fine for no mask (mandatory masks at all times). 
+Can only exercise once per day, for up to 1 hour. 
+Only one person per household, per day, can leave the house (including for groceries). 
+Can’t go more than 3 miles from your home. 
+Weddings are illegal. No gatherings of any size. 
+Army is on the streets fining/arresting people. 
+”Since March 21, a total of 193,740 spot checks have been conducted by police across Victoria.” 
+ Protests/activism is illegal; people have already been arrested for peaceful gatherings. 
+Media is EXTREMELY biased, calls protesters “right-wing conspiracy nutjobs” and won’t allow discussion of whether these lockdowns are right or not. 
+Several thousand people were placed under house arrest and unable to leave for ANY reason, with food rations delivered by the army, leading to appalling levels of personal trauma. 
+Australia won’t release how many fines they’ve given out, but an ABC news report says it’s over $5.2 million so far. 
+Streets of Melbourne are empty, even in a city of 5 million+ people. People are HATEFUL to each other, everyone is cannibalizing their neighbours (calling police to report any little infraction of the rules and turning on each other like some socialist hellhole). 
+Billboards outside on the street that say in capital letters: “WHAT ARE YOU DOING? STAY HOME.” They feel extremely oppressive like we’re being yelled at by a very oppressive government. 
+The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews shows complete and utter disdain for us, constantly blaming us. He’s blamed children (yes, really) for not taking this seriously enough. Every chance he gets, he tells us it’s OUR fault the virus is spreading (even though that’s what viruses do – they spread). 

scott.png

+It’s not just the Victorian Premier – the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, left, is just as terrible. He’s encouraged all of this, and he was responsible for the first lockdown. 
+1984 dystopian language: billboards everywhere saying “Staying apart keeps us together.” 
+Have they gone mad? There’s probably more but at this point, I honestly lost track of all the insanity that’s happened. All because 147 people died in the state of Victoria (total population is 6.359 million), almost all of the deaths are over 70 with comorbidities, same as everywhere else in the world. 
+This is lockdown ideology at work. It is a tyranny without limit, at the expense of all human dignity, decency, and rights. The politicians make a desert and call it health.


Like everywhere else on the planet, Melbourne will have to reach herd immunity from C-19 at some point. Those who deny that are risking not only liberty and health but civilization itself.


Perhaps the other states in Australia will observe the destruction in Victoria and learn to take another path when the virus first arrives in their territory, as it surely will. Lockdowns are not science; they are brutality.
I cry for the once-great city of Melbourne this day. May there be justice. And may its future political leadership be granted some modicum of decency and wisdom.

Academic freedom under threat as pro-Brexit professors face discrimination and are self-censoring

Academic freedom under threat as pro-Brexit professors face discrimination and are self-censoring

Think tank releases a report claiming universities and the Government must do much more to ensure that all lawful speech is protectedByGabriella Swerling, SOCIAL AND RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS EDITOR3 August 2020 • 12:01am

Pro-Brexit and right-wing professors face discrimination and are self censoring, a think tank has warned, amid fears that academic freedom is under threat. 

The Policy Exchange think tank has released a report claiming that higher education institutions and the Government must do much more to ensure that all lawful speech is protected on university campuses across the country.

The paper, entitled Academic freedom in the UK, suggests there is a “structural discriminatory effect” against the minority of academics at British universities who identify as being on the right.

Researchers warned that: “Hostile or just uncomfortable attitudes signal to those subject to such discrimination that they should conceal their views and narrow their research questions to conform to prevailing norms, if they wish to progress and enjoy a positive workplace experience,” it warns.Ad

A YouGov poll, of 820 both current and former academics, found more than one in seven said there was a hostile climate towards people with their political beliefs in their department – but the figure is higher among those who identify as being right-leaning, or among those who voted to leave the EU.

Just over half of respondents said they would feel comfortable sitting with a colleague who is a Leave supporter at lunch, in a meeting or in the staff room.

Meanwhile, more than a third said they would feel comfortable sitting with a colleague who opposes admitting transwomen to women’s refuge centres.

But more than four in five said they believed academics who were pro-Remain would feel comfortable expressing their views to colleagues, the poll found.

The report suggests that right-leaning academics are more likely to choose to “self-censor” compared to colleagues who are centrists or on the left.

Some pro-Leave social sciences and humanities academics said they had refrained from publishing or airing views in research and teaching for “fear of consequences” to their careers, according to the think tank paper.

It warns: “The challenge today is that a serious threat to academic freedom may now, in addition, arise from within universities.

“This internal threat derives from the way that some in the university-both students and faculty members-relate to others on campus, being willing to penalise them on the basis of their perceived or actual political views.”

In a foreword to the report, Ruth Smeeth, former Labour MP and chief executive of Index on Censorship, says: “It does the country no good if our educators, our academics, our scholars and, most importantly, our students feel that they can’t speak or engage without fear of retribution.”

The report calls on the Government to make it explicit in law that universities have a direct duty to protect academic freedom and freedom of speech.

It adds that a “Director for Academic Freedom” should be created as part of the Office for Students (OfS) to investigate claims that freedom of speech have been violated, and to promote tolerance for viewpoint diversity in the sector.

Universities minister Michelle Donelan said: “University leaders must do much more to champion freedom of speech, and this Government is committed to bringing forward measures to strengthen free speech and academic freedom, potentially including legislation.”

She added: “It is deeply concerning the extent to which students and academics with mainstream views are being silenced and discriminated against in our universities.”

But Jo Grady, general secretary of University and College Union (UCU), dismissed the findings of the think tank’s report. She said: “The idea that academic freedom is under threat is a myth.

“The main concern our members express is not with think tank-inspired bogeyman, but with the current Government’s wish to police what can and cannot be taught at university.”

The OfS said it is planning to issue guidance on how universities can meet principles relating to academic freedom and free speech in the autumn.

Responding to the report, a Universities UK (UUK) spokesman said: “Academic freedom and freedom of speech are critical to the success of UK higher education and universities take seriously their legal obligations on both.

“Robustly protecting these characteristics in a constantly evolving world is of the utmost importance to universities.”

Andrew Anglin on the Meaning of Freedom of Speech in an Adult Society — If Trump doesn’t win our issue will be basic survival.

If Trump doesn’t win our issue will be basic survival.

All of this is to say: information has to be taken at face value, and all information should be examined through a critical lens by adult readers. The social media companies are now dealing with people as though they are children, incapable of any kind of critical analysis whatsoever. I don’t know if people are or are not capable of critical analysis, but I do know that the primary, foundational assumption of a universal suffrage democracy is that every adult member of society is capable of rational analysis and critical decision-making. That’s the most basic claim of this system, as it justifies allowing them to vote and determine who runs the government.

By undermining the ability of people to make rational and informed decisions, Twitter is undermining the concept of universal suffrage democracy itself. Of course, they don’t care, because our rulers do not actually believe in anything other than power. They profess various ideologies at different times, but only use these ideologies to push their agenda that exists totally independently from the ideologues.

Kelowna Online Media Castanet Publishes Letter Wishing Infection on END THE LOCKDOWN Protesters

COVID hysteria drives followers insane.

A letter calling for the infection of END THE LOCKDOWN protesters, was published by the Castanet media in Kelowna, which has refused to cover the protests.

” I believe we need an infected person to go find this group of idiots that think the virus is fake and give all the protesters a hug.If someone has the virus please go into a protest and shake hands with every protester and hug people

.Let’s see if the protesters get sick and disappear. See if the protesters believe after they get sick.Most of us know someone who has it, had it or been tested for it.To see a protest against this horrible virus makes me sick to my stomach.

I like the idea the Germans have about a COVID party. Maybe Kelowna needs one as well but except like Germany don’t ask for volunteers, use the COVID protesters.”

Second is a detailed update on today’s awesome media rally.  Awesome if only because we had a great attendance, a beautiful day, and definitely got the media’s attention.  Please see the attached pix!!!

We had approximately 30 committed supporters of freedom on a sunny and warm summer Okanagan day, though not all of them made the pix. Our rally began as a result of an article in Castanet (online news) from reporter Sarita Patel, in relation to our fact brochures we handed out on the nature of the COVID-19 issue. She interviewed the person who found the brochure, and did not contact us at all to fulfill her investigative journalistic duties.

I contacted her, and was told by her boss that they would not be interviewing me because they are supporting B.C. Public Health Minister Bonnie Henry.  This because their belief and support for Ms. Henry is not being permitted to be challenged by investigative journalism – ie. it is a form of wilfull blindness, recklessness, and pure corruption.  As demonstrated below, anyone who simply doesn’t believe what the gov’t tells them, is some form of conspiracy nut, and media outlets continually claim to be supporting gov’t propaganda and lies, without any intellectual debate on the statistics, procedures and death counts.  No one is being allowed to challenge them.

Gov’ts have grossly over reacted to what true statistics prove, is no more dangerous than, at most, a serious strain of the flu. 

Forover 99% of the people who catch the virus, it is not life threatening.  Focus should be on those most at risk, not shutting down our entire society and forcing everyone to live in fear and paranoia. 

Four Canadian epdemiologists in the National Post recently, wrote that the chances of dying from a COVID infection if you are under 65 years of age, is 1/166 666, or the same as being hit by a car.  We have so many facts in relation to this issue, as well as on the masks and social distancing issues, that it is becoming hard to know where to start analyzing them all.

What has been done is nothing less than a criminal misrepresentation of the seriousness of this virus, by our governments.  This information on our position is critical to understanding what happened in the local Castanet Letters column, which I will explain shortly below.

Moreover, it is not merely the absence of investigative reporting by these gov’t propaganda media outlets that is worrisome, it is their repetitive labelling and derogatory allegations being made against us, without even providing us the opportunity to provide them intelligent rebuttal.  One could say it is, or borders on the line of slander, defamation or libel – as well as deception/fraud. And of course, if prevents the truth of our cause from becoming mainstream and the public living with lack of knowledge and in abstract and unnecessary fear.

As a result, of this ongoing misrepresentation by the MSM in B.C. and in Canada, our group here in Kelowna made the bold and unprecedented decision to hold a rally in front all local media outlets here in Kelowna today, to voice our concerns over the substance of their reporting as well as their refusal to hear us.

Our first stop was the Kelowna Daily Courier. We were met within minutes by 4-5 staff outside all taking pictures of us and our signs. I met with Mr. Ross Freake who was standing in for news reporters who are on holidays.  Mr. Freake was colourfully respectful to us/me in our brief discussions, and advised me that he would contact the reporter on Thursday or Friday, and get back to me. 

A woman official also sought answers to her questions.  Upon satisfying her queries, she advised me that she was going to contact the publisher in relation to our position on COVID-19, mask and social distancing.  She was pleasant, appeared concerned on the issues I raised, non-abusive and polite. 

Contrary to their word, the very next day (Thursday) the Kelowna Courier printed this article on the front page of their newspaper today, titled: “Virus-doubting protesters picket Kelowna media outlets”.

http://www.kelownadailycourier.ca/news/article_205bcf5e-d760-11ea-a069-5f52e48dadf0.html

This exact same article was also printed in the Penticton Herald, with a different title: “COVID conspiracy theorists picket media outlets in Kelowna”, with the following endnote:

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Herald stands by its coverage on COVID-19 and stories by other news agencies that we have published. We 100% support the scientific and medical research presented by Dr. Bonnie Henry, Dr. Theresa Tam and Dr. Anthony Fauci

Mr. Freake promised me that they would not do an article without seeking our opinion on the matter.  He agreed with me that writing a story from only one point of view, is pure propaganda.  It is obvious that the word of a media representative is about as reliable as that of a politician.  Almost.

We were unable to locate the CTV location.  I had an address from the net that appeared to be incorrect.  I could not locate a phone number. People in other buildings refused to assist.  So, we moved on to Castanet.

Within minutes of our arrival, a super-charged angry man came out of the building specifically asking for “Dave”. I introduced myself, upon which he demanded to know why we were there.  I professionally informed him that it was the article in his news service that started this by having a report published with incorrect information about us and refusing to permit us to correct the erroneous allegations or provide the facts that we rely upon.

Further discussions ensued, where I informed him that a Castanet official reneged on her word to me that we could publish a small article/ad in the paper for our rallies as well, and then reneged on her word on the advice of a superior.

This official, who refused to introduce himself, was extremely angry, belligerent and made every attempt to provoke our group into a confrontation.  Fortunately, this did not occur.  His claim of calling the police and that they were on there way, was an absolute lie, and no police showed up at all. In fact, a police car even drove by and continued right past us without stopping.

This official continually interrupted me and subsequently then went into the building, but not after a reporter took some pictures of some of the group and subsequently included them in an article that went up on the Castanet site about an hour later: https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/307091/COVID-conspiracy-theory-protesters-set-up-outside-Castanet#307091

Shortly thereafter, a local radio station official arrived and requested an interview.  As per usual, he had no business cards.  However, he was professional and respectful in his questions and demeanour.  I was allowed to fully answer all his questions without interruption and his questions were not deceptive or inflammatory. 

As with the Courier, I told him politely that I wanted an interview with his morning DJ and he said he would raise it on Thursday morning with him and contact me again Thursday or Friday.    As of this writing, I have received no calls from this man and it appears that he is following the same trustworthiness of other “professional” journalists. Then it was off to Global News.

As you can see from the above article, the Castanet official claims that we were going to other media outlets, and I suspect he called them in advance. Upon arrival at Global, entrance was denied and communication was only by speaker phone. I was told all news room were out on assignment, until an unknown time.  Unsurprisingly.  I left some of our materials with them and after ½ hour we left to the CBC.

No one answered the locked door, nor the buzzer.  Phone calls were routed to news reporters who did not answer and went to voice mail. We remained here for ½ hour and then ended our rally back at Stuart Park.

So, it was an eventful day and we most definitely caught the attention of most if not all the local media here.  Unfortunately, it appears that this attention was merely that of role playing. Every media outlet’s news reporters were conveniently unavailable.  This is no coincidence.  They simply do not wish to discuss facts, but to promulgate lies and outright deception. 

All group members were adamant that if the media continues to ignore us, and/or publish incorrect or misleading information about us, we will be back better and stronger!!   It appears that come September, we will be back at their doorsteps with even more people. Fraud lurks in silence – we will expose them.

I hope this will set a precedent for other communities to protest their local and national medial outlets in their communities, who are failing or refusing to do proper investigative journalism, and are simply propaganda arms of our governments.

The most important advice I can give anyone in so doing, is to have your position supported by facts.  Know in advance how your province is misleading everyone with falsified stats.  Timelines are critical – why are all these masks impositions occurring now when there are virtually no deaths?  BC has had almost 100 cases of COVID and no deaths recently, yet are imposing mask requirements on all buses.

These masks are nothing more than a safety blanket for the superstitious masses, who simply want something to believe in that will save them. 

Third: our next rally is Saturday, August 8, 2020, 12:00 noon at Stuart Park in beautiful Kelowna, B.C.

We need as many people as possible

for our rallies!

If you have been unable to make it out to previous rallies, NOW is the time to come out!!!!

Bring at least two friends!!!

There will be several new issues to chat about on Saturday.  BC has capitulated and will be forcing masks on public transit beginning in later August.  Walmart has also decided to require masks in the stores.  This likely will mean more mask requirements in other stores.  This is going to require a massive amount of sacrifice on our part if this happens. 

We cannot simultaneously wear masks while complaining that they are unlawful. 

The mask issue is polarizing the entire country and breaking up friendships and families. 

If it comes to a choice of freedom or friends/families, do we sacrifice our freedoms for others who either don’t care about them or stand in fear?  If this was the case, we would never have reached this stage (prior to COVID-19) to begin with.  Strategy will play an important role for us to discuss.

Theresa The Communist-WHO official Tam said recently in her August 6, 2020 press release:

We must maintain our resolve and ensure our actions are guided by the best available science and evidence. With the rise of social media and

other digital platforms, we are consuming more information than ever before. However, some of this information, including certain claims about

COVID-19, is false or misleading.

In our fight against COVID-19, we need to do our part to stop the spread of misinformation. When we come across new information, we need to

think critically about it, check it against credible sources and not share it further if there is any doubt as to its validity.

Once we have confirmed our sources of factual information, we need to use it to avoid labelling as much as possible.  It is one thing to be called

names when someone has no information to support their position, it is quite another to be called those same names when we do have supporting

facts, but they choose to ignore them. That is when we can go on the offensive.  Facts = credibility.

In an article in the Vancouver Sun, Health Minister had this ominous quote attributed to him:

As we approach our B.C. Day long weekend, let’s acknowledge right now that it can’t be like any B.C. Day long weekend we’ve ever had.  This is our first B.C. Day celebration in our B.C. new normal.”

Use ‘COVID sense’ to stop the spread and stay safe

Van. Sun July 27, 2020  p. A11

Reading between the lines provides a frightening look into the future: there will be many more B.C. Day long weekends under similar circumstances as we see now, ie: this is permanent and will never end.

We cannot permit this to happen. Which leads directly to the real new normal that WE will practice.

The Real New Normal from now on, is:

Live normally and just say NO!      

Do not fall into the trap of believing that it is only because of the Gov’t’s social distancing/masks demands that stores can now begin to slowly open.  To the contrary, it is directly because of the Gov’t’s actions that we have sustained tens of billions of dollars in economic losses, permanent job losses, unknown deaths and needless suffering from cancelled surgeries, and incurred further health care costs resulting from these cancelled tests and surgeries, and actually placed thousands of people’s health and lives at risk.  Communist PM Trudeau, Premier Horgan, Health Minister Dix, and Public Health Officer Bonnie Henry are the true cause of these problems and short of a public apology and immediate cancellation of the lockdown and social distancing policies, must be voted out of office next election, or fired for Ms. Henry. And criminally charged.

 See everyone on Saturday, August 8, 2020 12:00 noon at Stuart Park!

POWER GRAB: How did ‘two weeks to flatten the curve’ turn into a two-year lockdown?

    Remember when we were told that it would take two weeks to “flatten the curve”?  Stay home, isolate from your friends and family, close your business, delay your doctor visits and surgeries, stop attending funerals. Save lives!  We were told that if we did that, we would slow down the rate of people getting sick, so the hospitals wouldn’t be overwhelmed.

It’s been more than four months now.

The curve has been flattened – in fact, most hospital wards have been empty the whole time.  So how did “flattening the curve” turn into unlimited rule by unelected health officials? The same health officials that jet-set around the country while telling you that you can’t leave your house.  Click here to watch what I have to say about that. 

This virus has been no worse than the annual flu season in terms of the death toll. It’s done now.   But that’s not enough. Now we’re being told to wear masks everywhere we go and to continue distancing ourselves until a rushed, made in China vaccine, is developedand that this could take another 2-3 years.  This is politics, not medicine.
