    The View Up Here commits to Know Thine Enemy, Canada, Know Thine Enemy

    in Politics

    October 19, 2015. It is approaching fast as the usual bluster emanates from Ottawa. The pillar of status quo and conformity, the corporate media, continues to sensationalize and distract from the things that truly matter regarding the future and stability of Canada. An exhausted Elizabeth May tries to be someone she is not, utters the F-bomb twice in nine minutes, and this is suddenly the moral dilemma of the nation. Not election fraud. Not insiders awaitng trial, on trial, or under criminal investigation. Not $3.1 billion that went "unaccounted for". Not policy that benefits the top 20% or less of the population. Not the walls of secrecy or threats of retribution for speaking the truth. Not the obscenity that is omnibus legislation that changes acts of Parliament without relevance, debate or scrutiny.


    Canada is blessed with many intrepid investigators and reporters that seek the truth. But once they find that truth, the real hard part begins. Beancounters and message controllers masquerading as editors and producers have an agenda that differs from those that seek to inform and expose. Corporations keep the advertising revenues flowing as long as the message suits their aims. The false rallying cry from the establishment of the "Leftist Media" continues as the government of Emperor carries on with seeming impunity. Canadians need to awaken to see a different F-bomb in their midst. Government and corporations. It is Fascism.


    There are lessons to be learned from the Alberta election. The opposition parties keyed on their common enemy, not each other. The lies and incompetence were exposed. The voters were left to choose their replacement freely. It is time the federal parties did the same for the benefit of Canadians. It's not like there is no evidence to condemn Emperor and the Corporate Pacification Committee. Let's attack the enemy, not each other. For Canada.

Kirk as they discuss the following issues: that George Zimmerman just can't seem to stay out of trouble which urban media are quick to notice (but is this another case of the unclothed emperor?); an Atlanta Blackstar article highlights the Afrofuturism phenomenon but what is it and why does it have varied interpretations?; Dburt forgot to discuss his recent viewing of Ex Machina; delving into another issue that was left on the studio table-Transracial vs Transgenderism-is one more acceptable than the other; more nonsensical race based stories (HS principal berates Black folk during graduation, young White girls create N-word and lynching referencing rap song, BU professor sends out racially charged tweets against White college males before starting the job and Subway worker loses job for doing what the aforementioned professor did). And lastly, Conservative author/pundit, Ann Coulter believes that apologies for slavery have been given to POC previously in the wake of a recent college graduation commencement speech given by FLOTUS (does she really believe this?).  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.

    Japanese military strategy that determined final war decisions

    in Current Events

    Jane and her guest discuss the consequential moments of WWII as the Japanese highest military command wrestled with the Emperor on what solution was best for their country.  They had the moral dilemma of not wanting to admit defeat vs. accepting the perilous doom that the U.S. was going to try to make it impossible for the Japanese not to surrender.  Pride is one thing, death another but the casualty level became clear what decision to make.  SouthEast Asia did not think that Japan paid a high enough price even with the two Atom bombs being dropped.  Please tune in to this pivolal moment of history.  Some of the revelations are based on the examination of the movie, "The Longest Day."

    The View Up Here from the centre of the storm - the Alberta Election

    in Politics

    On May 5, 2015, Alberta heads to the polls in the most anticipated "unnecessary" election in more than a generation. In 110 years, only four political parties have formed Government in the province. So far every party that has lost power has virtually disappeared from the map.


    Considering this election was not necessary until 2016, Jim Prentice might be reconsidering a bit now. The PC's are in third place after 44 years in power. The New Democrats and the supposed dead Wildrose sit atop polling as they have from the outset of the campaign. There is a much different tone in the air this time around. No more coronations. It's looking like no more same old. General consensus is the higher the turnout, the bigger the loss for Prentice will be.


    We will look at the leaders of the five parties involved. We will look at any major policy goals of each. We will look at the one and only televised debate performances and effects of same. And we will look at the gaffes, leaks, mistakes, feuds, attacks and punditry of the campaign. It is not being discussed openly in media but the results in Alberta could be very influential as Canada heads towards a federal election this October at the latest. Jim Prentice and Brian Jean are both former MP's in Harper's CPC with Prentice far and away having the better of Jean on that score. So what would it tell Canada if the NDP formed government in Alberta of all places, over Emperor's messengers?


    Calls welcome, especially from Albertans! Join us for some insight into the seemingly ending conservative heartland.

    How to Pray for Evil Rulers

    in Spirituality

    How to Pray for Evil Rulers [LIVE call -in show for Thursday 04/23/15]


    Scripture tells us to pray for our national and regional leaders. In fact, it's rather detailed about how and why to do this. But I sometimes hear this from Christians: "How can I pray for this man who's in office now? I can't stand him, and he's doing a terrible job!"  Yet 2000 years ago, the Apostle Paul writes "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life ..." (I Tim. 2:1-2)


    Now in case your wondering how and why you should pray for our current leaders, and how you can possibly offer God thanks for them, keep in mind who ruled the Roman Empire at the time that Paul wrote this: it was Nero and his appointed henchmen. (You've heard of Nero, haven't you, dear Christian?) Nero was preceded by Claudius and by Emperor Caligula. Look up Caligula on the Internet for some perspective on the evil of our national leaders today. This was the time in which Paul wrote.


    So what's your verdict, Christian?  Are the Scriptures irrelevant here? Or had St. Paul gone "soft in the head" when he wrote this? How and why should we pray and be thankful for our national leaders today? Tune in and take note! Your host is Rev. Rick Anderson, on "Jewish Roots", each Thursday at 9:30 pm DST.
