New British PM Boris Johnson is a Trump Favorite Who Pledges to Execute Brexit by October

This is a good news for patriots in the United Kingdom and throughout the world.

The Conservative Party has elected Boris Johnson, a favorite of President Donald Trump who is an outspoken supporter of the Brexit, as the new Prime Minister of Britain, succeeding the vanquished Theresa May who recently resigned from her position.

Johnson won the vote of his party members by a resounding two-thirds majority, making him the clear choice to lead the Tories. He received 92,153 votes while his competitor, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, received only 46,656 votes.

Hunt was an outspoken campaigner for Britain to remain in the European Union while Johnson was and continues to be one of the most outspoken supporters of the leave campaign. It is clear that the Tories will be firmly behind the Brexit with Johnson at the helm, as his predecessor’s lack of strength on the issue ultimately sealed her political doom.

President Trump immediately talked up Johnson as the new British PM at a rally in Washington, offering him the highest of possible praise by comparing Johnson to himself.

“We are going to energize the country,” Johnson said while giving his victory speech at the Queen Elizabeth II center in London.

“We are going to get Brexit done on 31 October and take advantage of all the opportunities it will bring with a new spirit of can do,” he added. “We are once again going to believe in ourselves, and like some slumbering giant we are going to rise and ping off the guy ropes of self doubt and negativity.”

Johnson’s full remarks can be seen here:

Johnson’s pledge to achieve a Brexit regardless of the negotiations has already caused the resignations of Education Minister Anne Milton and justice secretary David Gauke, two bureaucrats who want to continue to deny the people the Brexit they voted for.

It remains to be seen if Johnson can live up to his “do or die” mandate by Oct. 31. If he reneges on his pledge to pull off the Brexit by that date, he could be remembered alongside May as an ineffectual Tory PM as Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage waits in the wings.

Canadian Police Report Almost 2,200 Home Visits To Monitor Quarantine Compliance

Published

on

Canadian police officers reportedly have conducted almost 2,200 home visits to ensure travelers into the country are complying with quarantine rules.

In late March, the Canadian government announced the start of the Quarantine Act, which mandates that anyone entering the country, with the exception of essential workers like truck drivers and those in healthcare, must self-isolate for 14 days.

Failure to comply can incur a fine of up to $750,000 and/or six months in prison. However, so far there have been no arrests, and only one fine of $1,000.

Still, many may find unsettling the degree to which the Canadian police, in coordination with official border and health services, are enforcing a nanny state by paying home visits to incoming travelers deemed at risk of non-compliance. In addition, prime minister Justin Trudeau has hinted that even tougher measures could be coming, even once Canada begins easing cross-border travel.

Also in late March, the Trudeau government announced a halt to all immigration in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, current immigration applications would not be closed or denied due to failure to meet typical requirements.

Still, many pointed out that Canada’s response was actually stronger than the US’, which has continued to import thousands of H-1B workers even while under lockdown due to a global pandemic.

The border between the US and Canada has been closed since the end of March, and this was recently extended, likely into mid-June. Trudeau has stated that the closure and its extension were implemented with full cooperation from the US.

While travel into Canada has not stopped completely, it has fallen drastically since the implementation of restrictive policies. However, critics of the government question whether Trudeau reacted quickly enough, and argue that the policy going forward is too vague and requires more explanation and accountability.

As stated by Conservative MP Pierre Paul-Hus:

“It was the Trudeau government’s failure to close our borders that allowed the virus to spread in the first place. It is incumbent on the Trudeau government to explain how they plan to ensure that travelers who are coming back to Canada are not spreading COVID-19… Unfortunately, right now the Trudeau government is telling Canadians to ‘wait and see’ without explaining what metrics they are relying on to make decisions.”

While Canada is doing significantly better than the US in terms of the number of cases, one tragically sobering area in which it has exhibited clear failure is the fate of its elderly, particularly those in state and private long-term care institutions.

It is estimated that up to 86% of the Canadian death toll is from facilities such as long-term care, retirement, and corrections, with the first two making up the large majority. In one privately-run nursing home, as much as one third of residents have died from coronavirus.

While the situation is complex and there are few countries that do not seem to have significant problems with their approach, it is clear that something is wrong with Canada’s. Perhaps the government should focus more on taking care of its elderly than intrusively monitoring its citizens.
