For those who contend that the USA has no culture, that is our culture –the freedom to pursue health, wealth and happiness and it is why nations of the world look to American culture for inspiration.
Law enforcement officers confiscating life-giving supplies to Freedom Convoy truckers lining the streets of Ottawa comes down to one thing – attempted homicide.
Denying emergency supplies that will keep law-abiding citizens (or even lawbreakers, were that the case, which it isn’t) fed and warm in subzero weather is undeniable intent to inflict harm, injure health and induce possible death.
officials are claiming that parents may be endangering children by bringing them to a peaceful protest
Going further, where officials are claiming that parents may be endangering children by bringing them to a peaceful protest, it is the unlawful seizure of gas and diesel, firewood, food, extra clothing and blankets that places minor children in peril of physical harm.
Only despotic government agents, from elected and appointed officials to street cops following unlawful orders, are culpable for loss of health or life that may result from interrupting and withholding the distribution of survival necessities.
The act of aiding life and freedom is being obstructed in places other than the capital of Canada where the provincial government headed by Doug Ford has declared a “state of emergency.” In other words, government agents and police have no lawful control over the free gathering of citizens seeking to express their opinion in a peaceful manner, therefore it’s deemed necessary to claim emergency powers to enforce dominion.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is now rattling his sabre, threatening the truckers with harsh words. It’s wondered how much can really be done to dislodge the Freedom Convoy built of truckers who are the nation’s infrastructure without wreaking more havoc than Trudeau has already inflicted on Canada’s economy.
Free Speech and Domestic Terrorists
As Ford’s administration is incapable of removing thousands of trucks from clogging Ottawa streets and other crucial arterials, it has lodged a court complaint against funding channel GiveSendGo, based on erroneous implications of convoy participants’ violent intent (i.e. lies). There is no end to the irony of governments allowing hundreds of millions to flow through disgraced GoFundMe in 2020-21 to rioters BLM and Antifa that inflicted billions of dollars in damage to private enterprise, but are up-in-arms that law abiding truckers are (now quietly) obstructing traffic.
Measures have also been taken to throttle free speech and election reform in the United States beginning with the Department of Homeland Security issuing a memorandum declaring individuals “domestic terrorists” who question election integrity, Covid mandates, vaccine efficacy, school curricula or, indeed, probity of federal agencies.
Individuals voicing an opinion regarding any of the above are now, and actually have been, under scrutiny as potential terror agents despite the unobtrusive – other than vocal – gatherings expressing concerned opposition to repressive mandates.
In the United States, the Constitution clearly empowers citizens to freely express opinion and exercise religion while restraining government from interfering with these freedoms. Yet that is not holding back the Biden Administration from attempting to usurp the power of the people by declaring those who disagree with its decrees to be terrorists bent on violent overthrow of its self-declared domain.
As part of the crackdown that has already carted off innocuous attendees of the January 6, 2021 D.C. rally to jail and, for all intents and purposes, thrown away the key, lawful vendors such as GiveSendGo are now likely to draw DOJ ire. That the service is, first, Christian and, second, unwilling to defund causes the White House dislikes, makes it a potential target for disruption and ultimate dismantling by Biden administration goons. The injudicial hammer is about to come down on visible proponents of constitutional rights just as the Canadian hierarchy is working diligently to accomplish through its own court system.
The discussion is whether the installed authoritarians (legitimately holding office is arguable) have the power to sideline either the U.S.’ constitutional or Canada’s charter rights in favor of their own arbitrary policies. The majority of legal citizens in both countries would plainly say “no.” Not that their opinion or peaceful obstruction of unlawful mandates will stop administrations from ignoring those rights.
In an effort to makeover the population of the United States into an ignorant progressive voting bank, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) has revamped its mission statement to exclude terminology that protects America from malcontents and miscreants. It has been replaced with all-inclusive verbiage that welcomes anyone from true refugees to criminal element, giving any and all sanction to destroy the foundation of this free nation. Despite the Biden administration intent to demoralize and deconstruct America’s free society through redirecting executive policy from protect and serve to destroy and steal, the populace is realizing what’s taking place.
Not only in the New World are the citizens becoming aware of how their governments are stripping away their God-given rights, the rest of the world is finally rising to meet the challenge of life-threatening lockdowns and mandates. Paris is now operating under authoritarian backlash to the crowds of thousands peacefully congregating to protest the militarization of their beloved city. Tear gas, batons and battle gear outfit the gendarmes in the streets to deter truckers and supportive citizens.
The Constitution is not a worthless or ever-changing piece of parchment, it is a written standard by which to live in liberty
Dr. Naomi Wolf discussed where the Ukraine border distraction is likely heading, having seen the ruse used when she worked in the Clinton administration. Smearing the working class, particularly truckers, for taking the freedom message to the highways, she and others with insight have pointed out that elitist plans have taken into account these protests and made ready to blame them for the supply chain debacle created by the questionable “leaders” in national office, not just in the United States.
Not to be discouraged, the plurality of the populations in both Canada and the U.S.A. are taking issue with the heavy- and under-handed police actions by turning out, not by the thousands but by the millions to be seen and heard. Censorship and major media omission of their stories will not impede the growing movement to reclaim the God-given rights of the People.
As long as some semblance of the law of both lands is recognized by principled judiciary and law enforcement, pretenders will be removed from their seats of power. And it will be accomplished by legal means because, in the United States at least, the Founders’ wisdom foresaw this debacle and prepared the weapons with which to fight it…
The Constitution is not a worthless or ever-changing piece of parchment, it is a written standard by which to live in liberty because, for those who contend that the USA has no culture, that is our culture – the freedom to pursue health, wealth and happiness and it is why nations of the world look to American culture for inspiration.
It is also why freedom will win.
