Canadian Truckers Protests massive, Trudeau runs from Ottawa

Spread the word. The legacy corporate media are not telling the world about the biggest Truck Convoy in history. People in cars have joined in, farmers in tractors are lining up. People are baking cupcakes and organising food for the drivers. A few hours ago it was a freezing cold midwinter night but throngs were cheering and tooting around Parliament Hill and the streets nearby were in gridlock. Three or four blocks away from Parliament Hill people are tooting in queues of cars, cheering on the Truckers.

Justin Trudeau has tested negative to Covid but has fled Ottawa for a secret location for “fear of violence” and to self isolate with his family. He’s called it a “small fringe minority” expressing “unacceptable views”, and the protesters have taken on the small fringe minority label in placards.

The Empire strikes back

Ezra Levant is on the scene and reporting that officials are going to extreme lengths (as I said they would) to stop the Convoy — they are blocking roads near Parliament Hill with police cars and graders. They have turned off traffic cameras that normally run 24/7 so that people cannot see what is going on.  Apparently they allowed “some trucks” into the centre but are banning the others. (Great way to manipulate the shots to show a “small protest”.)

Nova Scotia has banned people standing on roadsides cheering for the Truckers. So much for free speech! They have allowed some trucks in but are blocking the rest, presumably so they can get shots of a “small protest”. The lies to defend the Empire never end. Someone on Canadian State Media, CBC, is even blaming the Russians.

On Tucker Carlson, one trucker reports that as he approached the border the border guards didn’t need to see his phone “passport” because his phone had already reported his status on their screen. His phone had already given his private medical details to the border guards. As he said, what’s to stop them bringing this in all over the country, not just at the borders.

“Fear of Violence”: Easy way to sabotage any protest

The Washington Post and Trudeau are already labeling this as “far right” and potentially violent. The Truckers have gone out of their way to insist the protest is peaceful. There is a real risk here that this protest could be turned against the protesters just as the unarmed January 6 Capitol Hill protest was. Is a another false flag type incident on the cards? Who knows, but it would serve the autocrats if it happened, wouldn’t it? It would be used to discredit all the upstanding hardworking citizens just asking the government to let them choose their own medical treatment. Another fake insurrection. Another Reichstag fire?

Truck protests appear to be popping up now in  other countries but they are hard to confirm:

See Germany, Brazil, Australia. In Australia, #ConvoytoCanberra has begun. CraigKellyMP will be at PheasantsNest tomorrow at 7am. There are a lot of things stacked against this — we don’t have the same trigger point of new border truck restrictions like Canada does. But we have plenty to protest about. Will it take off? See #AustralianTruckers There are convoys on the road in Wyong and in Queensland/

    These truckers have found a way to push back against the decline in ethical standards in government.

    Sadly it’s a world wide problem in democracies where due diligence has lapsed because we, the people, have been too trusting of our elected representatives and the occupants of government institutions.

    They have taken advantage of us.

    We can further our own pushback by discussing and exploring the problem.

    The best place to do that is Here;

    I very much doubt that trucks from WA will be able to roll through SA thanks to record rain (likely more to come) which has cut! (washed away) highways. I can’t vouch for the state of outback roads in Qld. but I think it highly likely they are impassible.

        A lot of that should be sheeted back to a chap called Jones (Welsh?) who headed up our Bureau of Meteorology who called a drought “the new normal” back a decade or so.

          Hey Patrick – I’m so glad you mention things called “clouds”

          Aren’t they the big white/grey/black fluffy things in the sky that make up part of water vapour? They’re the part of water vapour we SEE in the air and combined together they make up between 45-95% of the warming/cooling blanket that covers our beautiful planet.

          I do know that they’re also one of the items that CAN’T be inputted to ANY the boffins 100+ “MODELS” that predict catastrophic man-made runaway global warming/cooling. There’s MANY other things that also can’t be inputted to their “super” computers (BS in BS out) such as tree/grass densities, geographical surface makeup such as rocks, earth etc and many other things.

          Hopefully I bait a few “true believers” so they can attempt to take a shot and shoot me down – you know who.

          Best of luck to them 🙂

          Cheers,

        No, he’s not kidding.

        Have you heard of a Grand Solar Minimum?
        It’s like the Wolf Minimum (1290 – 1320), the Maunder Minimum (1645 – 1710), and the Dalton Minimum (1790 – 1830).
        All three were periods of low solar activity which made for low temperatures, short seasons (so poor growing seasons) and lots of rain/snow (precipitation of every sort) in the early years.

        The Sun went into a new Grand Solar Minimum in 2020, called the Eddy Minimum. It hasn’t told us how bad it’s going to be. According to Zharkova et al, there won’t be much in the way of Sunspot activity over Sunspot Cycle 26 (this decade is SC 25), so it is expected to be very cool, maybe even cold. It’s thought it will be very like the Maunder Minimum.

        When this happens, there is a lot of precipitation in the early years as the water vapour is condensed out of the atmosphere with accompanying flooding. Because the Sun is weaker and weaker, there is less and less evaporation to replace that water vapour, and drought sets in. The first is predicted to be 2028 but could be sooner. There may very well be a food shortage by then, because floods and droughts are not good growing conditions for food crops.

        Australia is having flooding at the moment.

        The European weather during the Maunder Minimum is a matter of public record. Search for it and read all about it — you will at least be warned what to expect. The further from the equator you live, the worse it will be.

        Welcome to Real Life.

            At the moment it is recognised as a Secular Minimum. That doesn’t mean it’s only a part of a GSM, it means the Sunspot Cycle won’t completely stop. Everything else follows the GSM script. Yes, Solar Cycle 25 is going to be weak, but it will weaken as it progresses. Solar Cycle 26 is the determinant and you said Nothing about SC 26.=, so I am.

            Zharkova’s Number crunching a few years ago said SC 26 would have zero Sun spots. We haven’t got there, yet, so don’t be too quick to throw it under the bus. It may be a Secular Minimum all the way through, it may turn Grand. So What? It’s going to have a bit of Sunspot activity if it remains Secular but they won’t change very much. It will be Cold with lousy weather and a few Sunspots instead of cold with lousy weather and no Sunspots.

            We won’t escape the Lousy Weather™ whatever it is.

      Of course you’re correct — they should have glued themselves to the highways right across Canada in minus 20 degrees. That way if they blocked ambulances they would have been given a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again until tomorrow . . . or else they’d get a $1 fine for their 25th offence. Or does that only apply when it’s the Greens and ANTIFA blocking highways?

      Freedom is the ultimate justification. If the truckers had done anything less than what they have done, Trudeau would have yawned and carried on regardless, instead of cowering in his Fuhrer-Bunker, terrified of his constituents.

        Applies to here in Australia too. If our truckers fail to achieve anything then our next stop is the ballot box very soon. If enough people don’t wake up by then, I don’t see how we who are awake can do anything to change things. The government will just as you say yawn and carry on regardless with their draconian actions.

            The worry is even if the Canadians truckers are successful in toppling Trudeau and/or his mandates, there is still a lot we must do here to change our situation. Unless our federal government somehow through Commonwealth law or legislation forces the states to scrap their mandates, nothing can change no matter how much we all jump up and down, truckers included. We are different to Canada and in fact more like the US where their states in so many areas have the power. Their US Supreme Court decision of late has smacked down Biden’s attempts to coerce and mandate COVID-19 related restrictions and guidelines, and allow the states to do what they like. It is clear our PM is reluctant to pursue any avenue to force the states to change. Besides, he has stated we must move on and learn to live with the virus with the proviso we all still get vaccinated and follow up with booster shots. In other words, he has no intention to try and force the states to give up on their draconian mandates. He has in effect given them the green light. For him to give them the red light, he has to change his tune and act like a national leader in the face of a national crisis, and stop pretending to be one. I wish our truckers all the best in making that a reality and force our PM to change.

    I find myself this morning making an argument I always thought was stupid. Having been Libertarian and in an uneasy alliance with local Republicans, I have always been a little disturbed by the argument that “It’s OK if the Left wins, the stupid things they do will drive people to us”. Most disturbing was to see the candidates from the right, if they were elected, go along to get along with to much of the stupidity.

    In retrospect; the left has always changed the language to make stupidity seem like progress to enough to the ordinary citizens….”believe what we say and not what you experience” to maintain majorities in some populations.

    Perhaps the key to power was retaining optimum stupidity. But the drug of authoritarianism and the fever of TDS have allowed the guardrails to slip away; the careful march of years through our institutions has been replaced by a headlong rush to establish the liberal utopia, and in ain’t Camelot, it’s Hades. And it landed smack in the middle of Joe Ordinary’s kitchen table;

    Defund the police, Men becoming pregnant, magic powerplants creating skyrocketing energy costs, no borders, and not even a semblence of respect for the folks (“Shut up and take your damn jabs”) have finally driven home the reality of progressive practice to the average citizen and taxpayer.

    This is good. Fear has worked for the ‘authorities’ to take power. They need to feel fear of those they have abused; the newly elected in the next go-around must also understand once again the power of those who, for two many years, they only pretended to serve.

    SO much as I hate myself this morning, it may be that this dose of progressivism have finally awakened the common sense of the forgotten man, and Democracy will once again function well in countries that elect their leaders.

      It is reported in The Australian and other Australian papers “hundreds of anti-vaxxer truckies protest in Ottawa over mandates”

      It is interesting that YouTube is not deleting these videos.

      The convoy is being downplayed in Australian press. Australians are informed there are “hundreds of anti-vaxxer truckies” protesting in Ottawa. The only press photo in the local paper in Melbourne showed four trucks in a narrow street with less than 100 people in view.

      On a lighter note: Comments in the live streams are occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. There was one bot posting ad nauseam that Black Lives Matter and, well, actual people replied back that All Lives Matter and that Free Lives Matter, which was good and true, but the one that got me was that “Beavers’ Lives Matter!” IIRC, there was some vain attempt by the Turd-dope faction to give all the beavers in Canada the clot-shot.

      There were also calls to get the WEF classified as a terrorist organization, which sounds like a great idea.

      After Germany, the Netherlands, France, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, the Philippines, Bosnia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Israel (Palestine too, probably), Aruba, Bolivia, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, and most of the states in the U.S., including Hawaii and Alaska, declared themselves part of the “chat”, someone posted “It’s a Small World After All!” Complete with musical notes.

      And then, of course, there was that guy who chimed in with, “Hi, Mom!”

    Some WA pollies seem to have an electoral Death Wish — the bottle shops are closed to the unvaccinated. Woo Hoo! Electoral Suicide!
    It’s election year this year.

    Before all the Western Australians rush out to be jabbed, everyone should take a look, a long close look at NZ’s experience.

    See: https://hatchardreport.com

    extra comment at:
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/6h2Yrz0jSjh9/

    and make up their own minds rather than accept the govt pressure.

    They need to ensure they have or can get insurance to cover themselves against a vaccination accident; insurance which can’t be declared `suicide’ and anulled — as in France which means they need to find and read all the available vaccine information.

    (The NZ ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation) holds the statistics on NZ’s vaccine “accidents” and it would take an Act of Parliament to access any of that information.)

      ATAGI to change ‘fully vaccinated’ definition to someone with three doses, reports claim

      Australia’s vaccine advisory body is gearing up to change the definition of a “fully vaccinated” person, according to reports. Here’s what it could soon mean.

      Sky News’ political editor Andrew Clennell revealed last night that the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) will soon categorise a fully vaccinated Australian as someone who has had three doses of a TGA-approved Covid-19 jab.

      Under the current definition, those considered fully vaccinated “have received two doses of any Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved or TGA-recognised Covid-19 vaccine at least 14 days apart” and “are least 7 days post their second dose”.

      Clennell said that the move to include a third dose in the definition showed “the campaign for Australians to take their booster shots is in full swing”.

      “The federal government knows that it is up against it in getting all Australians to get a third jab, but figures as more people perish from the virus, it will encourage people to come forward for their shots,” he said.

      Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews also hinted at the move on Sunday, telling reporters it’s only a matter of time before federal health agencies change the definition to mean three doses instead of two.

      Mr Andrews said he expected the changes to the vaccination regime to be announced over the next week.

      Questions are mounting, though, over whether three doses will be enough to help protect Australians from the virus.

      “As for fourth and fifth [doses], let’s wait and see how this goes,” Mr Andrews said regarding the matter.

      “Being vaccinated saves lives.”

        Scam in World History — The Truth is This is a ‘Pandemic of the Vaccinated’

        This week has been eye-opening. Even for me — and I’m the guy who has warned for over a year, in commentary after commentary, and often for three hours a day on my nationally syndicated radio show, that the COVID-19 vaccine could be dangerous and deadly and could lead to catastrophe.

        I stuck my neck out like no other talk show host in America to warn the vaccine may not even prevent illness; in fact, it could damage the immune system, thereby causing more illness and death. And not just from COVID-19, but also injuries and death linked to the COVID-19 vaccine itself.

        Eight months ago, I warned it was time to suspend the vaccine program pending an investigation of mounting deaths, grievous injuries and permanent disabilities. I titled my commentary, “What if This Experimental COVID Shot Is Killing People? Don’t Americans Have a Right To Know?”

        But even I was shocked by the plethora of stories coming out just in the past week, from all corners of the world, suggesting the vaccines are indeed a terrible failure and are causing a mass die-off.

        Here is a quick look at the FACTS that have come pouring out of the closet just in the past week:

          COVID-19 science or blind compliance

          Defense Medical Epidemiology Database tracking our military’s health trends

          This past Monday, Jan. 24, 2022, Sen. Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, conducted a hearing on the issue of COVID-19 interventions. More specifically, the senator invited testimony regarding our military’s new practice of requiring mRNA injections of all our nation’s soldiers. Mr. Johnson’s goal was quite simple and straightforward. He wanted to learn what the available data shows concerning this new drug’s efficacy and potential side effects.

          Why is this important?

          Well, it is pretty simple. We need to know if the men and women charged to defend our country are healthy enough to do so. In other words, a sick sailor, a downed pilot or a bedridden infantryman is of little value should we need to go to war.

          In fact, an official database exists to facilitate all this. It is called the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database, and it is considered exceptionally accurate, complete and effective in the early detection of any compromised health trends in our military population.

          For example, regardless of your party affiliation, wouldn’t you want to know if the United States Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corp were experiencing a near 300% increase in cancer cases during the first 11 months of 2021 compared to the previous five-year average?

          And, wouldn’t you want to know if there were a similar increase (again, 300% greater than the previous five-year average) in miscarriages?

          And, wouldn’t you think it was noteworthy if the same database showed a 1000% increase in neurological disorders?

          And what if this same set of statistics showed 71% of all new COVID-19 cases in the military are fully vaccinated and that 60% of all hospitalizations are from the same group?

          When you hear cries of outrage because someone like Mr. Johnson and Sen. Rand Paul — or even Joe Rogan for that matter — simply asks good questions, it might be evidence that maybe it never was about science but rather compliance.

          Israel: A Profile in Vaccine failure and a Warning to the World

          “Israel’s daily COVID-19 cases reach record 83,653,” says Wednesday’s news wire.

          “COVID-19 in Israel: Serious cases increase tenfold in span of a month, continue to rise,” announces a recent headline from the Jerusalem Post.

          Elsewhere we learn that Israel’s positive test rate is a staggering 29.63 percent. This means that nearly one-third of all Covid tests taken by Israelis are coming back positive.

          Israel is obviously a country in deep Covid trouble with the SARS-CoV-2 virus running out of control in that nation.

          Even though Israel’s population is heavily vaccinated and boostered, the country is posting unprecedented case numbers. On January 25, Israel reported over 101,905 cases which is more than 10 times its pre-vaccination high. In other words, now that the Israeli people have been mass injected with the mRNA vaccines, their cases have gone up by more than 1000 percent.

        Misery for Australia is on the Way

        PM Scott Morrison faces electoral wipe-out with support plunging, according to Newspoll

        On a two-party-preferred basis, Newspoll delivers Labor a winning margin of 56-44 – the largest margin for the opposition seen since the leadership change in September 2018.

        Labor would wipe out the Morrison Government’s majority if those results are replicated at the election with the potential loss of up to 25 seats and a landslide victory.

        According to Newspoll, Labor’s primary vote lifted three points to 41 per cent, its highest result since 2018.

        For the first time, the Coalition is also behind Labor on the question of which party is deemed better at leading Australia’s recovery out of Covid-19.

        The Greens secured 11 per cent of primary votes while Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party remained largely unchanged on 3 per cent.

        Labor leader Anthony Albanese is also closing the gap on Mr Morrison as preferred prime minister, with just two points now separating them.

        The Prime Minister’s net satisfaction ratings have fallen 11 points to minus 19, his worst ranking since February 2020 revelations of his secret Hawaii holiday while the nation burned.

        Under Albanese and Labor, Australia is Screwed – just look at VIC, QLD, WA.

            Labor leader Anthony Albanese charged taxpayers $17,269 to stay in his own Canberra flat

            As Sydney struggled through a marathon lockdown, Anthony Albanese claimed $17,169 in travel allowance from taxpayers to stay in his Canberra flat

            Labor leader Anthony Albanese claimed $17,169 in travel allowance from taxpayers to stay at his mortgage-free Canberra apartment for 59 nights during Sydney’s marathon lockdown while staging “guerilla” campaign missions into Queensland and Tasmania.

            News.com.au can reveal Mr Albanese claimed a travel allowance for 74 nights in Canberra, Queensland and Tasmania, while Parliament was only sitting for 19 days during the same period.

            By basing himself in the nation’s capital during the lockdowns in NSW and Victoria, Mr Albanese was able to campaign in Queensland while the Prime Minister remained largely locked down in Sydney and unable to travel.

            During that period he claimed more than $21,020 in travel allowance including $17,169 in Canberra which he used as a staging post to run missions into Queensland and Tasmania despite border controls requiring Sydneysiders to quarantine.

            Mr Albanese’s register of interest declaring his assets to Parliament confirms Mr Albanese owns three homes – his Marrickville residence, a Dulwich Hill investment property and his Canberra apartment.

      That might work but if the masses are already too far gone then they might turn on the truckers. It depends on the proportion of people who are willing to support the truckers for the long term. It also depends on whether the truckers themselves will not give up. So many questions that only time will answer.

    Both Apple and Google Android have contact tracing ‘infrastructure’ (the “Exposure Notification Interface” application programming interface [API]) built into their operating systems. This is known as Google/Apple Exposure Notification or GAEN.

    If you don’t want to be traced and tracked by GAEN or numerous other methods, you need to get a de-Googled phone. It is impossible to de-Google an Apple phone, it will always trace and track you no matter what you do but it can be done with certain models of Android phones (with open source Android installed). You need to change the firmware so it’s a job for experts only or you risk bricking your phone.

    Another option is a Linux phone.

    Look at the YouTube channel Rob Braxman Tech. Rob Braxman is an expert on privacy-oriented phones and also sells de-Googled phones.

    I suppose Big Brother’s next move is to ban de-Googled phones.

    John McAfee started to develop a privacy phone before he died…

    Those of the Left always say “if you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to hide”, but that’s not the point. Few conservatives have done anything wrong they need to hide from but they are entitled to privacy anyway. This is a concept Leftists simply don’t understand because they think Big Brother knows best.

    In this video Rob Braxman talks about using a de-Googled Android phone.

    https://youtu.be/mqSCmT5S-2w

    Note that regardless of your phone OS, or Google, the phone network knows where you are anyway by virtue of the fact you are logged into the nearest cell tower. De-Googling stops the more egregious tracing and tracking, however.

    TV news reports and the local Herald Sun newspaper in Melbourne reported “hundreds” of trucks. So it has made the main stream in Australia but is downplayed albeit inconsistently because both reports went on to say Trudeau was in hiding for him and his family safety. Surely a small security group could protect Trudeau from a mere “hundred”. truckers.

    This from The Australian:

    We All Should Declare Ourselves Honorary Canadians and Thank Them

    Freedom is a fragile thing and it’s never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. And those in world history who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.

    Ronald Reagan–Jan 5, 1967

    I love my country, I truly do. The United State of America is one of the most remarkable countries in the entire world.

    Yesterday in Ottawa, Canada, and truly throughout the whole of the “Great White North,” a melting pot of human beings from all different backgrounds came together to bring Twain’s famous quote above to life in a way that I have not seen in quite some time. The Truckers Rally for Freedom 2022 might have started out as just those who are the backbone of any nation, the truckers who work 24/7, 365 days a year, to make sure we have food and supplies to purchase at our convenience. Yet it seems to me that it has morphed into something much more.

    Canada has shown the world how to hold a protest to address grievances against an overbearing government in the 21st Century. Quite frankly, they may have not just written a new chapter in the book on how to protest to protect our freedoms, but a whole new edition on how to do it the Canadian way.

    As an American who relishes my country’s past of being a little bit too itchy for a fight at the drop of a hat, I have to admit this surprises me in multiple ways. Yesterday, average, everyday Canadians showed the world how to not drop a hat and look for a fight but to wear wool hats snuggly and securely while demanding their right to be heard by their government in almost sub-zero temperatures.

    It should not be too difficult to understand the anger and frustration being expressed in Canada by heavy transport drivers and owners, if the handling of COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns are even worse than we have experienced in Australia, emphasis on State Governments of Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia in that order top of the list, but generally every State Government applies to Canada as news reports indicate.

    Of course politicians play party political games taking advantage of situations and quickly blame others, the fact is here that State Government Parliaments created the Emergency powers legislation, State Health Departments created the restrictions and lockdown rules and regulations, including quarantine hotel detention for international traveller arrivals including Australian citizens wanting to enter a State after being cleared through Federal Immigration etc at airports and ports, interstate border closures and so on.

    And right now after the Federal Government has borrowed to fund States, employers and employees during the lockdowns, supplied vaccines and other medical supplies and generally the few health related provisions within Federal areas of responsibility, some State Treasurers and Premiers are demanding more Federal funding assistance and complaining that according to their illogical claims the Federal Government has not done enough for them.

    Well regardless of which level of government the money comes from we the taxpayers foot the bills, including annual liability for interest on debt (government bonds).

    According to financial page reports unemployment is now surprisingly at a many years low and the national economy GDP growth is improving, it will not be until budgets are again in surplus that there will be spare revenue to retire the public debts with. The Federal Budget was close to a surplus, the first since the Howard Government’s last surplus of $22 billion achieved in 2007/08 financial year budgeting, for 2019/20 financial year and then unexpectedly COVID-19 pandemic commenced early in 2020 in Australia.

    To their credit the NSW Coalition Government is advocating a return to normality and back to working towards economic prosperity, and the Federal Government has been calling for that approach for many months earlier.

    However, the excesses imposed on we the people have been unacceptable, the Canadians have a woke far-left PM brother image for the New Zealand PM.

    Trudeau is clueless about basic facts. The UK statistics show that Omicron is 1/10 as dangerous as the covid Delta variation. Omicron is less dangerous than Omicron.

    A leader/all country leaders, must ensure that mandatory vaccinations are justified and safe. The first release RNA covid vaccinations are now neither.

    Omicron will stop covid in Canada also. Omicron is a paradigm changer. Infection with Omicron is inevitable for all as it is roughly as contagious as the measles and Omicron is roughly as dangerous as the flu based on the UK statistics.

    Why is the Canadian government continuing to force/recommend vaccination, including children with the first release covid vaccines which have dangerous side effects, including death?

      WA- for 2 years now, just about every basic rule of epidemiology, virology and public health policy has been ignored in the incessant bid to get to COVID zero. Do you think anyone in any government who has advocated for those crazy policies are going to capitulate now? Do you think they would use data and trends from other countries as a guide to their own policies. I’m thinking 2 chances of that happening. (no chance and bugger all) We are now in this no mans land where all these governments are saving face and wont admit their mistakes. As the Omicron train hurtles on at great speed this hesitation will only get worse. The UK and Denmark ( + Sweden etc) have shown the way, but will any others follow soon? Australian government? I don’t think our ” leader”. Scott Morrison will make any great changes in policy in the next few months prior to our federal election. The power of authority lies with the states anyway. The Labor (ALP) states will try to gain some political points from the LNP to push them out of government.

        ” … just about every basic rule of epidemiology, virology and public health policy has been ignored in the incessant bid to get to COVID zero.”

        But that isn’t really the objective, nor is it to reach xx% vaccinated.

        The real objective is 100% obedience.

    In Canada, ‘brave’ Sir Justin runs away

    One person who is not impressed is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a nascent tyrant and moral midget. He’s mindlessly accused unvaccinated people of being “misogynistic and racist” because those are the worst insults he can think of. In the same way, my son, when he was not quite three and deeply resented a walk to a lake, swore as only a toddler can: “I don’t want to go to dirty, stinky, poo-poo luck.” His words made as much sense as Trudeau’s insult, although Trudeau lacks the excuse of extreme immaturity.

    Despite the massive outpouring of support for the convoy, Trudeau also called the truckers, who have support from millions of Canadians, a “fringe minority” that holds “unacceptable views.” And ignoring entirely the good cheer and peacefulness that has characterized the truckers, Trudeau preemptively accused them of being violent.

    Trudeau has been so frightened by his own rhetoric that he announced that he’d been in contact with COVID and therefore had to quarantine at home. Raise your hand if you believe him.

    Now that the truckers have entered Ottawa, though, Trudeau has abandoned the pretense of quarantine. Instead, he’s simply run away:

    By contrast, Canada’s boy despot has, as I said, run away. And all I could think of was that Monty Python got there first—Brave Sir Justin ran away!

      Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau scurries out of Ottawa as protest convoy arrives

      As is typical of bullies and tyrants: when the people stand up to them, they bail. I give you exhibit A, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

      Canadian media is reporting that the fearless (or feckless) leader and defender of all things Covid, has left town as the miles-long convoy of patriotic truckers arrived in Ottawa.

      Now there’s a profile in courage.

      However, I do believe this example of spineless leadership will in the end destroy whatever credibility Trudeau had left. After all, the appearance of cowardice is never a resume enhancer, especially when compared to the inspirational courage exhibited in this historic protest by thousands of heroic truckers.

        Cut-and-run Justin

        Canadian truckers send Trudeau into hiding — and just might help end COVID mandates

        You’ve heard of Hidin’ Biden. Our neighbor to the north, my native land, just outdid that with Cut-and-Run Justin.

        With the pandemic in full swing, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Canadians to show support for those helping to keep food on their tables. “While many of us are working from home, there are others who aren’t able to do that — like the truck drivers who are working day and night to make sure our shelves are stocked. So when you can, please #ThankATrucker for everything they’re doing and help them however you can,” he tweeted March 31, 2020.

        Trudeau had a chance to thank thousands of them personally over the weekend, as the truckers who’ve assembled what they call the Freedom Convoy to protest COVID vaccine mandates and restrictions cruised into the capital. Instead, he fled — breaking isolation to do it.

        On Saturday, the Trudeaus moved from their official Ottawa residence to the classic “undisclosed location.” Dad had started a five-day isolation Wednesday after one of his kids tested COVID-positive — but security accompanied the first family as he fled.

        It was yet another example of how far the apple’s fallen from the tree

    I did a google search using “truck protest” to see what coverage it was getting.

    It seems while some may argue it’s not getting enough coverage, or is being downplayed. This from World Socialist Web Site (WSWS).
    https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2022/01/29/fcon-j29.html

    Anyone following the Canadian corporate media’s news coverage in recent days will have been bombarded by reports about a relatively small protest initiated and led by far-right, owner-operator truckers against a federal government-imposed vaccine mandate.

    Mainstream media outlets have breathlessly reported the progress of the “Freedom Convoy” as it has traversed the country from Vancouver on the Pacific Coast to Ottawa, where the protest concludes today.

    Separate to the above article, the WSWS claim “Ending the pandemic means fighting for socialism”.
    I’ll put that another way. “Taking away freedoms and creating a police state to fight the pandemic means embracing socialism.”

    The Trudeau Government Plans To Hit Truckers Again with Interprovincial Vaccine Mandates As Well.

    On Sunday morning . . . the CBC reported that the Transport Minister . . . stated that there was “working [sic] being done” to implement interprovincial vaccine mandates for truckers.

    In mid-January, Stephen Laskowski, president of the Canadian Trucking Alliance, acknowledged to Bloomberg News that Canada was already 23,000 drivers short of what’s needed to meet demand, a key reason for supply chain problems across the nation.

    What Does It Mean to Be a Canadian Today?

    In short, we believed that we were decent and productive Canadian citizens. The result is that we are now pariahs in our own country.

    The reason for this strange turn of events is common knowledge. We object to the ruinous official response to the pandemic — the mask mandates, the lockdowns and curfews, and now the mandatory vaccination protocols and vaxxports.

    The Trudeau government will likely resort to a false flag operation, seeking to turn the event into a rerun of the fake January 6 “insurrection.” It will condemn the truckers for snarling up traffic and preventing ambulances and fire trucks from responding to emergencies. Or it may do nothing besides let the truckers and their supporters freeze in -40ºC weather.

    The major news organizations are uniformly engaged in a slander blitzkrieg. The electorate has been 80% vaccinated and will join government and media in a self-righteous and defamatory campaign against the best people the country has to offer. Trudeau, who has been triple-vaxxed, suddenly discovered he had contracted COVID and conveniently withdrew from the immediacy of the fray, saying he would be working from home — no doubt planning strategy and issuing commands from his bunker. Altogether, the way in which this courageous band of truckers has been treated is without doubt the most sordid spectacle of political depravity I have ever witnessed in this country. Will they prevail? Miracles can happen, but the upshot is not encouraging.

    In any event, the die is cast. Of course, one can stay and fight, which is a noble endeavor and may, mirabile dictu, lead to temporary intermissions in a downward political and economic spiral. For many this may be enough. But rampant and unskilled immigration diluting an original population, a decadent education apparatus in which History and Civics have been abolished, a suborned media platform, comparative prosperity and public amenities leading to cognitive lassitude, and woke ideology spread across an entire country — truckers and patriots notwithstanding — can have only one denouement in the long term. Unlike the United States, Canada has no term limits on incumbent power. Trudeau may be in office for another decade or two, ruling an already broken country.

    Once — or if — local and personal circumstances permit, emigration is a feasible option. After all, citizenship can not only be abrogated, it can also be renounced.

    Off topic, but stop the presses.
    Victorian Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton says Daniel Andrews has not requested public health advice on mandated booster shots, despite the Victorian Premier repeatedly calling for them to be adopted.
    Professor Sutton said a third dose of the vaccine was not part of the public health advice and he would assess any requests made of him by Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley.

      Good Lord. That has the appearance of a man, a powerful bureaucrat, following and mentioning the real science. God bless him! How rare is that; to see ahead of Department take down the demands of a Premier? Wonder when the Chief Science Officer or any underling receiving funds for scientific research will either call out the science of AGW, or produce a paper with findings that simply reflect open minded research findings without feeling they must be presented in pro AGW propadanda. Peter Ridd should be the Saint of modern Research. His is almost a Bible story.

    On Fox today. Steve Hilton’s segment: Papers released this week show Natural Immunity x3 as effective as vaccines at keeping COVID-19 infected (Delta strain I believe) people out of hospital. John Hopkins University study shows Natural Immunity effective for at least 2 years.

    So, for the truckies, mandating vaccination for omicron especially makes little sense except to force people to have short acting, less effective vaccines. For those recovered and lost their jobs refusing the vaccines it makes for a lot of litigation one would think. If not possible against governments, then against businesses that forced the same edicts if one was to keep one’s job.

    A couple of links here,

    http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/2022/01/31/january-26-2021-reader-tips-2/#comments

    including

    “You can also watch the first press conference given by the Convoy organizers. The entire thing is well worth watching. These folks are VERY media and politically savvy. They understand what’s going on. We applaud them for not getting sucked in by the legacy media. We applaud them for not apologizing for peacefully fighting for the freedom of ALL Canadians. Nor will they allow themselves to affiliate with any particular political party or politician. Though they are looking to talk to the Conservative Party Leader, but insist that it is clearly not Erin O’Toole. Bravo!”

    The Rubin Report: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJW_bhh8y4E

    @tonyb: there’s nice, clear arial shot of one of the convoys. Not sure if that was the one that surpassed 57 mile long.

    Reportedly, there are 120,000 trucks in the convoys, and 1.5 million people protesting.

    Also, jerry-cans (spg?) are needed because, even thought the convoy brought their own tanker trucks, the Ottawa police are limiting their movement so that they can’t get to some of the trucks needing fuel. Therefore, Canadians are manning up and delivering fuel by hand. (What, they can’t pay-off the police there? 😉 Sorry, U.S. joke.)

    The truckers’ GoFundMe has surpassed $10 million at this point. So, reportedly, lawyers from the Ottawa “government” have filed a lawsuit claiming that the self-reliant, peaceful, tax-paying protestors somehow “owe” more money. Utter B.S.
