Candace Owens -Biden was instructed by China to remove American troops from Afghanistan and he did it.

May be an image of text that says 'Candace Owens Biden was instructed by China to remove American troops from Afghanistan and he did it. It had NOTHING to do with wanting to end a war and EVERYTHING to do with what he & Hunter were paid for; Biden's orders from Beijing are to destroy America so China becomes a global hegemon. @CandaceOwens 1.2K 50.6K 3:56 PM 752 463'

Trudeau’s vaccine passports are an affront to liberty

“The ferocity with which authorities and the general public are calling for their fellow citizens to either capitulate or be cast out of functioning society is shocking and irrational.”

POSTED ON: AUGUST 15, 2021

By Lisa Bildy, The Post Millennial

The federal government’s announcement on August 11, 2021, that it will implement a national Covid vaccine passport for international travel in the early fall of 2021 appears to have set off a cascade of vaccine mandates and public pressure for provinces, universities, and private businesses to follow suit. Prime Minister Trudeau’s announcement marks a significant reversal of his previous statements that a vaccine passport would “have divisive impacts on community and country.”As with lockdowns in the spring of 2020, once one province or institution succumbs to public pressure, a domino effect occurs. We are seeing that play out once again with vaccine passports and mandates. And as with lockdowns, anyone seeking to rationally balance the harms is disparaged as an “anti-vaxxer,” no matter how many vaccines they or their children have previously accepted.

Calls are growing to make life as difficult as possible for those who won’t get with the program. A Hamilton City counsellor even argued that people should not even be permitted to access grocery stores and hospitals without showing that they have been vaccinated.

It has been said that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. The full implications of widespread vaccine mandates are not yet known, but this much is certain: it will divide society. And the overreach being proposed by authorities like the Hamilton City counsellor is staggering. If we continue down this path, those persons who cannot or choose not to be vaccinated for Covid-19, as is their right, will be segregated and denied a normal existence. They will be vilified in the media and by government, ostracized by society and ultimately persecuted. They may even be denied food and medical care. Those who defend them will be censored, silenced, and punished.

The Justice Centre has received hundreds of emails from Canadians about this issue in the last weeks and months, and it is clear that individuals’ reasons for choosing not to take the Covid vaccine shots to date are as diverse and nuanced as the pluralistic society in which we live. There are also those who are vaccinated yet have privacy concerns about being forced to show their medical status before being allowed by government to move freely about society.

Many point to the hasty rollout of the shots. Unlike other vaccines which take 5-10 years to undergo clinical trials and where long-term safety data can be studied, the Covid vaccines were rushed to market in mere months, even before clinical trials were finished. Those trials won’t be completed until 2023. Section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms should protect the rights of Canadians to choose not to take a medical treatment that is still in the experimental phase.

Other Canadians have doubts about the efficacy of the shots. The right to have an opinion and to express it is protected in section 2(b) of the Charter, yet each new day brings more censorship and punishment for those Canadians, including medical professionals, who voice concerns about efficacy and safety. In a free and democratic society, the ability to have a conversation, including hearing various viewpoints, is not only a benefit, it is a right. Canadians have a right to see and hear the data and consider it for themselves.

Some Canadians point to countries such as Iceland, where approximately 75 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated, and over 90 percent of people over the age of 16 have had at least one shot. That country’s Chief Epidemiologist recently conceded that herd immunity from vaccination has not and cannot be achieved, as the Delta variant can be contracted easily even by those who are vaccinated and spread to others. This reality echoes a CDC report from a July 2021 outbreak in Cape Cod, MA, where 469 Covid-19 cases were identified among residents who had travelled there and 74 percent occurred in fully vaccinated persons. Of the 5 hospitalized cases, 4 were fully vaccinated.

Others are concerned that a vaccine passport system ignores the fact that thousands of Canadians are naturally immune from Covid, having recovered from the disease.  Natural immunity has been proven to be very robust. In Israel, where approximately 60 percent of the population is fully immunized against Covid, data presented to the Israeli Health Ministry revealed that coronavirus patients who recovered from the virus were far less likely to become infected during the latest wave of the pandemic than people who were vaccinated against Covid.

Many Canadians are concerned about government coercion to take experimental vaccines, and potential side effects of the vaccines, all of which have Health Canada warning labels for various conditions including myocarditis, pericarditisBell’s Palsy, and thrombosis. Further, according to the US Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), there have been 6,631 recorded deaths among people who have received a Covid vaccine.

And, as the Justice Centre has repeatedly reported over the last 17 months with statistical information from our governments’ own websites, the risk of suffering a severe outcome or death from Covid is vanishingly small for children and young adults—even for most adults under 60, unless they suffer from multiple, serious co-morbidities. It would be perfectly reasonable for young adults to decline to accept these known risks, given their low risk of harm from Covid, and it is unethical for universities and colleges to demand this of them as a cost of getting an education. This is medical coercion.

The ferocity with which authorities and the general public are calling for their fellow citizens to either capitulate or be cast out of functioning society is shocking and irrational. Too many people have forgotten how to live in a free society and expect everything and everyone to be tightly controlled. The ability to move about freely, travel, congregate and socialize, are not privileges to be bestowed at the whim of bureaucrats and politicians, but are rather fundamental rights and freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution. The Justice Centre exists to protect and preserve these rights and is determined to do so.

Lisa Bildy is Interim President of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms.

Trump blasts Biden’s Afghan exit strategy as driven by ‘ weakness, incompetence’

‘Joe Biden gets it wrong every time on foreign policy,’ 45th president declared.

By John Solomon

Updated: August 14, 2021 – 9:07pm

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday evening blasted his succesor’s strategy for exiting Afghanistan, saying it was driven by
“weakness, incompetence, and total strategic incoherence.”https://71b9c5478b8337c6abf83678b7bf65b1.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

“Joe Biden gets it wrong every time on foreign policy, and many other issues,” Trump said in a statement issued by his office. “Everyone knew he couldn’t handle the pressure. Even Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, said as much.”

Trump said his administration left behind a plan to keep pressure on the Taliban while U.S. troops withdrew, and that it was disregarded. He suggested the sudden surge by the Taliban across Afghanistan was due to that failure.

Biden “ran out of Afghanistan instead of following the plan our Administration left for him— a plan that protected our people and our property, and ensured the Taliban would never dream of taking our Embassy or providing a base for new attacks against America,” he said.

Former Pentagon chief of staff Kash Patel told Just the News on Friday that Trump’s plan included continuing U.S.air power to keep the Taliban in check and try to force them into negotiations.

“What a disgrace it will be when the Taliban raises their flag over America’s Embassy in Kabul. This is complete failure through weakness, incompetence, and total strategic incoherence,” Trump said.

BBC: Leading the World Against Israel

by Richard Kemp

  • Following accusations of slanted reporting of the second Palestinian intifada, which began in 2000, and the rise in Jew-hatred caused by it, in 2004 the BBC was pressured to open an inquiry into its coverage, by Malcolm Balen, former BBC News editor. For 17 years Balen’s findings have been kept under lock and key by the BBC, which admitted spending $500,000 of public funds in a series of legal battles to prevent its release.
  • “What is it are they hiding and what are they afraid of?”, Conservative peer Lord Polack asked. Responding, the Minister for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said that in “some instances it [the BBC] has fallen far short” of the required standards.
  • Three allegations that Bowen breached BBC guidelines on accuracy and impartiality were fully or partially upheld in 2009 by the BBC’s Editorial Standards Committee, which also said that he had failed to acknowledge there were views contrary to his own.
  • The BBC’s reporting on the Gaza conflict this year typifies its long-term bias against Israel. It constantly drew moral equivalence between Israel, a Western liberal democracy, and Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, both proscribed terrorist organizations…. There was no acknowledgement that the conflict had been initiated by these groups that openly seek the destruction of Israel or that without their violent actions, no Palestinians in Gaza or civilians in Israel would have died. Instead the BBC maintained the fiction — pushed by the Palestinian side — that Israel’s actions in Jerusalem were the cause. Nor did they mention that Hamas misappropriated millions of dollars of international aid to construct tunnels, rockets and other engines of war to attack Israeli civilians.
  • This biased journalism was crowned by commentary direct from Jeremy Bowen, whose report from Gaza at the end of the conflict looked more like pro-Hamas propaganda than objective reporting…..
  • Why so much emphasis on Bowen’s role? Because all BBC reporting on the Israel-Palestinian conflict for more than 15 years has been driven, above all, by his editorial influence.
  • I do not blame Bowen for the influence he wields, I blame the BBC executives that allow him, with his history, to hold a position that dominates the coverage of the world’s largest broadcast media corporation. Israel. During the 2021 Gaza conflict… the BBC had to issue corrections eight times in their Arabic news coverage alone.
  • Senior BBC producer Alaa Daraghme recently shared a video on Twitter which he wrote was “An Israeli settler ramming a Palestinian man near the Lions Gate.” In fact the video showed a car being driven onto the sidewalk after an attempt by Palestinians to lynch the driver, who then lost control. There are many other such cases of bias and distortion among BBC staff.
  • Like many others, the BBC rejects or ignores historical reality in order to portray Israel as an illegal occupier of Arab lands. To underpin its false narrative, for many years it has repeated Palestinian propaganda, ignored violence against their own people, and whitewashed their Jew-hate…. Israel’s contributions to disaster relief and other humanitarian actions around the world are almost always ignored.
  • There is little likelihood, without firm intervention by the British government, that the BBC will relinquish its leadership of the global anti-Israel movement that has contributed to so much suffering, misery and bloodshed.
More than any other media organization, the BBC is responsible for inciting hatred against Israel — not just in Britain but globally. Its agenda helps to ensure continued aggression against the Jewish State, and fuels violence by Hamas and other terrorist groups. Pictured: The BBC Television Centre in London, England.

More than any other media organization, the BBC is responsible for inciting hatred against Israel — not just in Britain but globally. Its agenda helps to ensure continued aggression against the Jewish State; fuels violence by Hamas and other terrorist groups; feeds the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement; encourages distorted condemnation of Israel by human rights groups and international bodies; and provides material to be exploited by activist university professors and students.

All of this not only seriously harms the reputation of the State of Israel and stimulates antisemitism around the world, it also worsens the suffering of Palestinians by uncritical coverage of the leadership that is responsible for their plight.

Plenty of other media organizations and propagandists contribute to this malevolent narrative, but the BBC is more influential than any of them because of its widely perceived objectivity, respectability and reliability, combined with unrivalled reach. It operates under a contract with the British government and is bound by a Royal charter, together requiring accurate and impartial news and analysis of current events and ideas. In its own words: “BBC News is respected both in the UK and around the world for the strength of its journalism and impartiality”.

It is the largest broadcaster on the planet, with over 35,000 staff. Last year it boasted that on average 438 million people around the world came to the BBC each week.

Following accusations of slanted reporting of the second Palestinian intifada, which began in 2000, and the rise in Jew-hatred caused by it, in 2004 the BBC was pressured to open an inquiry into its coverage, by Malcolm Balen, a former BBC News editor. For 17 years Balen’s findings have been kept under lock and key by the BBC, which admitted to spending $500,000 of public funds in a series of legal battles to prevent its release. Efforts are now being made by filmmaker Hugh Kitson and others to have the report made public. In parliament this June, Conservative peer Lord Polack urged the government to compel the BBC to release it. “What is it they are hiding and what are they afraid of?”, he asked. Responding, the Minister for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said that “in some instances it [the BBC] has fallen far short” of the required standards.

In the wake of the Balen report, in 2005 the BBC created a Middle East Editor to add context to coverage of events on the ground. Experienced reporter Jeremy Bowen was given the assignment and has been in the job ever since. Bowen had been BBC Middle East Correspondent from 1995-2000. In May 2000, while covering the IDF withdrawal from Lebanon, his driver was killed by IDF tank fire, an event he described as the pivotal moment in his life.

An IDF investigation concluded this had been a tragic mistake. Bowen however seems to have no doubt the IDF intentionally attacked him, a BBC journalist. In a tweet last year, on the anniversary of the incident, he wrote: “They were close enough to see us clearly with the sophisticated optics in a Merkava tank.”

I have fought in a comparable British tank and know that, no matter how sophisticated the optics, mistakes often happen in the innate confusion of war. A Challenger tank in my brigade during the 1991 Gulf war opened fire on a British Warrior armoured vehicle and in the 2003 Gulf war one British tank attacked another, killing two crewmen.

There have been many other similar incidents involving tanks. Would Bowen argue that these were also deliberate? In 2003, BBC journalist John Simpson was wounded in a US “friendly fire” air strike that killed his interpreter and 17 others. He did not suggest this was a deliberate action by the Americans, but concluded: “these things happen in a war”.

Whatever the reality, noone could blame Bowen for feeling the way he does about the May 2000 incident, and some might find it hard to retain their objectivity. But the wisdom of appointing a man with this experience to a role intended to address accusations of biased reporting must be questioned.

Three allegations that Bowen breached BBC guidelines on accuracy and impartiality were fully or partially upheld in 2009 by the BBC’s Editorial Standards Committee, which also said that he had failed to acknowledge there were views contrary to his own. Bowen rejected this censure, branding complainants “the enemies of impartiality”.

The BBC’s reporting on the Gaza conflict this year typifies its long-term bias against Israel. It constantly drew moral equivalence between Israel, a Western liberal democracy, and Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, both proscribed terrorist organizations, whose status I never saw mentioned in BBC reports. There was no acknowledgement that the conflict had been initiated by these groups that openly seek the destruction of Israel or that without their violent actions, no Palestinians in Gaza or civilians in Israel would have died. Instead the BBC maintained the fiction — pushed by the Palestinian side — that Israel’s actions in Jerusalem were the cause. Nor did they mention that Hamas misappropriated millions of dollars of international aid to construct tunnels, rockets and other engines of war to attack Israeli civilians.

This biased journalism was crowned by commentary direct from Jeremy Bowen, whose report from Gaza at the end of the conflict looked more like pro-Hamas propaganda than objective reporting. This was true to form. In an article written by Bowen after the last major conflagration in Gaza in 2014, he said: “I saw no evidence… of Israel’s accusation that Hamas uses Palestinians as human shields”. This despite universally recognised evidence that human shields are Hamas’s consistent tactic against Israel, as proudly admitted on more than one occasion by Hamas leader Fathi Hamad and confirmed again in May in a speech to the UN Security Council by Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland.

Why so much emphasis on Bowen’s role? Because all BBC reporting on the Israel-Palestinian conflict for more than 15 years has been driven, above all, by his editorial influence. According to British newspaper The Independent:

“As Middle East editor of the BBC, he holds a position of such importance that people from all over the world look to him for an understanding of the course of international affairs.”

Bowen says of his role: “to try to explain the most complex and newsworthy place in the world is a hell of a big job, really.”

I do not blame Bowen for the influence he wields, I blame the BBC executives that allow him, with his history, to hold a position that dominates the coverage of the world’s largest broadcast media corporation. But of course he fits well into an organization infected with such a blatantly biased agenda on Israel. During the 2021 Gaza conflict, according to the UK’s Jewish Chronicle, following complaints the BBC had to issue corrections eight times in their Arabic news coverage alone.

Over the years, many BBC staff have betrayed their own bias both in their reports and on social media. For example, this year the BBC was forced to fire journalist Tala Halawa after a tweet she had written before being hired by the BBC was brought to their attention by media watchdog Honest Reporting. She wrote: “Israel is more Nazi than Hitler! Oh, Hitler was right, IDF go to hell”.

Senior BBC producer Alaa Daraghme recently shared a video on Twitter which he wrote was “An Israeli settler ramming a Palestinian man near the Lions Gate.” In fact the video showed a car being driven onto the sidewalk after an attempt by Palestinians to lynch the driver, who then lost control. There are many other such cases of bias and distortion among BBC staff.

In May, during the Gaza conflict, the UK charity Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) called on the BBC to dismiss Bowen following a tweet he posted on his official BBC twitter feed instructing “every Jew” to read an “exploration of Judaism” that claimed that “Racism, hate and violence are Jewish values too”. Gideon Falter, CAA Chief Executive, commented:

“As antisemitic incidents against Jews in Britain surge, Mr Bowen has chosen this moment to order all Jews to read an article that most people will have taken to be an analysis of why Judaism is a religion of racism, hate and violence. He will have known the feelings towards Jews that this would incite and recklessly added fuel to the fire.”

Last year, CAA complained to the BBC about a report marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Orla Guerin, veteran BBC international correspondent. She was accused of linking the murder of six million Jews during the Holocaust to Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, a comparison that is antisemitic under the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism, adopted by the British Government. Following her report, historian Simon Sebag Montefiore wrote:

“This BBC News commentary on Yad Vashem by Orla Guerin linking the Holocaust to Israel’s West Bank occupation is truly foul — managing to be both shamefully amoral and historically inaccurate, utterly cynical and complacently selfrighteous all the same time [sic]”.

In 2006, Guerin, who had succeeded Bowen as BBC correspondent in Jerusalem, was moved to Africa after allegations of bias in her reporting on Israel. In 2015, a former BBC Chairman complained about Guerin’s Middle East reporting, saying she had implied “equivalence between Israeli victims of terrorism and Palestinians who have been killed by Israeli security forces in the act of carrying out terror attacks”. Perhaps, like Bowen, Guerin has a personal axe to grind?

Like many others, the BBC rejects or ignores historical reality in order to portray Israel as an illegal occupier of Arab lands. To underpin its false narrative, for many years the BBC has repeated Palestinian propaganda, ignored violence against their own people, and whitewashed their Jew-hate. This is sometimes blatant, sometimes subtle and often emphasised in reporters’ body language. But always the message is clear and consistent. Anecdotally, I can remember only one or two positive reports about Israel in the last 20 years. Even reports about the country’s remarkable success against Coronavirus must be tainted by false allegations about depriving Palestinians of vaccines. Israel’s contributions to disaster relief and other humanitarian actions around the world are almost always ignored.

There are some expectations that the corporation’s new Director General, Tim Davie, will end the BBC’s heavily slanted coverage of this issue as well as many others. He recently told staff: “If you want to be an opinionated columnist or a partisan campaigner on social media then that is a valid choice, but you should not be working at the BBC”. But he has an uphill struggle against institutional bias. In reply to a recent complaint made to him about Jeremy Bowen, Davie’s staff wrote:

“We are confident in his ability to provide analysis of this often complicated situation with his own insight and knowledge… We do not agree Jeremy displays a bias against Israel”.

There is little likelihood, without firm intervention by the British government, that the BBC will relinquish its leadership of the global anti-Israel movement that has contributed to so much suffering, misery and bloodshed. As British journalist Melanie Phillips writes: “It is no exaggeration to say that when it to comes to Israel, the issue is not BBC bias. It is BBC incitement to baseless hatred”.
