As alarming as it is to read about the things happening globally these days, it appears many in Canada are unaware or indifferent to much that I find gravely concerning here in our own beautiful country. I would be lying if I didn’t admit to finding the weight of this soul crushing.
In the mainstream news, magically, both the freedom protests and the virus have all but vanished, as people hold vigils or attend lawful protests to ‘stand with’ Ukraine. Are these issues of lost rights and accountability for the virus just to be swept under a yellow and blue carpet?
I, too, stand with the Ukrainian people. Without question, it is devastating to see how their lives are expendable, as the ruling elites use them as pawns in geopolitical games.
However, not to be forgotten, along with other innocents in neighbouring countries, I worry about the toll this takes on the Russians.
Regular people wanting nothing to do with wars, who have risked protest to say so, must now juggle life with a tyrant at the helm, loss of banking systems, the global internet, and access to international industry.
Maybe the goal is to starve innocent Russians until Putin gives up?
That appears at best ineffective, and at worst, cruel.
I know, everybody is an expert on these things, right, haha? But would these types of tactics seem likely to help solidify Russia’s relationships with China, Iran, and India, countries more than willing to fill in any gaps?
Are they picking teams for the big game?
I cared about the Iraqi people during the invasion in 2003 too, transfixed to the TV for months, following embedded reporters as they tore through each decimated town, taking cover from encroaching bombs. War was heartbreaking then, just as it is now. It always will be, regardless of where and between whom it happens.
I understand that my inherent hypervigilance might play a role in this instance, and I account for it to a degree, but over the past two years, the cognitive dissonance that many have developed as a coping mechanism appears to have resulted in a concerning rate of change blindness in society (failing to notice a change because it takes place slowly and incrementally).
With the insidious erosion of our rights and freedoms through ineffective lockdowns, forcefully coercing vaccines, and a lack of access to life-saving treatments in the early days, friends and family seem to have settled in with this new authoritarian way as though it’s A-okay with them, bugger the science and data.
People whom I know to be intelligent and thoughtful in other areas of their lives refuse to listen to anything not passed down to them from our politicians and their megaphone media, and prefer to assume that I am the one who is disturbed.
Why? What did they ever do to deserve such blind loyalty from the citizenry, especially after the laundry list of overreaching and tyrannical moves Trudeau and his team levied against peaceful protestors in our countries capital recently? But, again, they prefer to see those Canadians with the bravery to stand up, as racist terrorists like Trudeau told them, rather than to listen to what their own friends, family, and neighbours are saying.
The only way I can think to reach people is to write, meme, share, be here for support, and try to connect with other freedom-minded folks.
I will remain hopeful that something might spark a sense of curiosity in a reader, causing them to find the bravery to start their journey to the truth. Even if only a couple of people are enlightened and see what I am doing for what it truly is, that is enough for me.
What a disgrace. Tamara Lich, a Canadian with no criminal background, was denied bail after spending five nights behind bars on a mischief charge for her role in organising the Freedom Convoy to Ottawa last month.
This week was her bail review hearing where it went on record that the previous judge, Justice Julie Bourgeois (are you kidding me with these names! Who is writing this? ), who made the unusual ruling to deny Lich bail, should have recused herself. Bourgeois posed a conflict of interest as she had run as a Liberal candidate in the 2011 federal election.
Tamara Lich, has been severely mistreated by our justice system and was held as a political prisoner in Canada (did I just type that?!), while our government continues to use her as a poster child to scare people from organising protests in the future.
I was reading the summary for Bill C-36, and it looks like Justin Trudeau better beware, he might have the Human Rights Commission at his door regarding his comments about the convoy and those who have chosen not to be vaccinated:
‘This enactment amends the Criminal Code to create a recognizance to keep the peace relating to hate propaganda and hate crime and to define “hatred” for the purposes of two hate propaganda offences. It also makes related amendments to the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
In addition, it amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to provide that it is a discriminatory practice to communicate or cause to be communicated hate speech by means of the Internet or other means of telecommunication in a context in which the hate speech is likely to foment detestation or vilification of an individual or group of individuals on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination. It authorizes the Canadian Human Rights Commission to accept complaints alleging this discriminatory practice and authorizes the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to adjudicate complaints and order remedies.’
The overreach from our officials remains unrelenting. Silencing the alternative media will be quashing any truthful voices competing for our attention amidst the din of lies. We will get one side of any story: theirs. Consequently, the tag-team of corporate media and government will continue with impunity to run roughshod over Canadians, as fascism is wont to do.
In other crazy-making news, world leaders have been choosing flabbergasting phraseology and manipulation to condemn Putin’s invasion. It is difficult to believe we are not watching satire, with such blatant hypocrisy, worthy of any of the best This Hour Has 22 Minutes episodes. To this enlightened mind, the absurdity feels like an attempt to rub their incorrigible crimes in our faces, hubris their steadfast ally.
It would be a knee slapper if it were not so disastrous. These men detach from the horror of their pasts, automatons programmed to project their tyranny on whatever the chosen target, this being Russia season. Hey, I am all for the condemnation of war criminals, but let us make sure the likes of the Bushes, the Clintons, and Obama pay the same penance, ya?
Well, well, is that not the pot calling the kettle black-face? Who the hell does this dress-up clown continue to fool? Does no one think to tell him not to say these antagonising words to Canadians after the show of authoritarianism he just performed in Ottawa and across our great land? Does he not care what we think? I think, by now, the answer is clear: he does not.
The whole idea is to further infuriate and divide while actively initiating a world conflict between NATO and Russia, and only time will tell who else. The problem is, whose kids does he plan on sending because I doubt his dwindling list of loyal Liberal voters will be offering up theirs. People ought to be thinking about that, whether they agree with me or not.
Of course, George W. Bush and the Republicans are not the only side in US politics to spearhead imperialism and warmongering. Just look at the war crimes committed by the Obama regime against Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, and Syria. But it is easy to ignore all of that silly stuff if you focus on his charisma and ability to command an auditorium, eh?
Nay, nay, this is more of an across-the-board establishment endeavour. Left and right in agreement, publicly so in this case, and privately in most others, I would suspect anyway. Always under cover of the voters.
I was waiting to see what the federal government would offer via assisting the devastated refugees displaced by the brutality in Ukraine, and I sadly admit, this royal puppet never ceases to amaze me.
Why are we accepting people only temporarily if they have no family here? I do not remember this caveat with other refugees we have helped, as of late. Is he afraid Eastern European people might not be as willing to fall into his authoritarian line and might not make for great voters in the future?
Every day there is something new to befuddle or enrage us. It is near impossible to keep up with it all, and of course, that was always the plan. I will not stop trying to sift through it, though, not as long as my eyes can see. It is incumbent upon us that can tolerate truth to keep sharing it in the hopes that others will start to pay attention before it is too late. Sadly, I’m losing half the people in my life to do so, but that’s what protecting my son’s future and this great nation means to me.
Are you noticing an erosion of your rights and freedoms where you live?
If you do, are the people in your life willing to listen?
