Things are bad when even Romanians are warning you that your leader is a tyrant

Cristian Terhes of the European Parliament: “he’s exactly like a tyrant, a dictator. He’s like Ceaușescu in Romania”

If even you raise doubts, about the vaccine, you are outcasted.

What’s the difference between what he does and what happened under the inquisition? See on one side they say, we should not believe in God, and on the other they say “we should believe in science. “

Science is not about belief…

Kings and Emperors ruled by Godly decree. Today tyrants rule by “science”. And The Science says whatever they want. If the Archbishop of Science finds the wrong thing, he will be sacked until the new Archbishop gets it right.

 

In 2014 Daniel Dickin warned that Canada will become a dictatorship under Trudeau. He observed that Trudeau had no respect for democratic processes and rigged or tampered with Liberal nominations. Some candidates were mysteriously disqualified, paperwork went missing, and Trudeau ordered candidates to vote exactly the way he wanted.

Then there are those immortal moments when Trudeau admired the dictatorship in China.

    Here is a video by Benny Johnson about Trudeau’s father. Leftist “fact checkers” deny it was anyone but Pierre but that’s because they deny certain facts.

    This is a balanced discussion with supporting evidence about Trudeau’s parentage.

    https://youtu.be/-IL1uRlL1c8

    Trudeau’s behaviour and beliefs are completely consistent with his presumed father.

    You decide.

    It’s currently 3:34pm in Ottawa. Trudeau has extended the Emergency, after promising it would be time limited. And the vote tonight even he admits will be a confidence vote on his government and if it fails, his government falls. With the lowest popular vote to form a minority government in Canadian history, a few rebels will bring him down. And individual politicians will be calculating whether they would be better off if he does. The toes you stand on today may be connected the boot which kicks you out tomorrow.

    Here is some very good commentary from Tim Cast regarding the situation in Canada.

    Includes –

    – Government member’s call for permanent emergency powers.

    – Trudeau’s goons, I won’t call them police, mock injuries they caused to protestors.

    – Trudeau froze bank account of single mother for donating $50 to truckers even though donations were then legal.

    – The Left desire to have digital traceable and trackable currency so what you purchase can be controlled, e.g. enforcement of a food quota to “save the planet”, prevent donations to pro-freedom groups etc..

    This is everything rational thinkers have been warning about the Left for decades and the nightmare is all coming to fruition in Canada right now.

      Good point; It’s “Right Now”.

      An important message that we here in Australia must note and start pushing back immediately.

      “They” scammed us, controlled us and robbed us using the invented falsehood of Man Made Climate change and death by incineration due to human origin CO2.
      There is not one iota of truth to support the “science” of CAGW. It’s absurd to believe that human origin CO2 can have any influence on the thermodynamics of the atmosphere.
      It’s a thermodynamic ridiculosity to start with and to hammer in the final nail, it is a quantitative nonsense.

      O.K. they got away with the Global Warming control mechanism and the sale of huge quantities of dysfunctional, expensive, alternative green electricity generation systems to mess us around.

      Now the control is so damaging that we can barely understand the damage done to society over the last two years of Kovid Katastrophism and it IS now, right now, time to Object, biggly, as Trump might say.

    If Canada doesn’t wake up people of the West to the true intentions of the Left, then we have absolutely no hope.

    However, we are now seeing a fight back from the freedom-loving rational thinkers of the world.

    There is still hope.

    We have seen signs of the pro-freedom movement emerge in Canada, Australia, Once Great Britain and the USA, even NZ.

    Now….watch the Left redefine what “freedom” means, to suit their own agenda.

    “Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau exhibits the classic pathological traits of an abuser, refusing to allow his victims to question his authority. …. He claims it is not his fault the people rose up in protest to challenge his unilateral COVID mandates; however, now that they have, the government must punish them as a result of their challenge in order to restore the peace that he provides. The remarks are classic abuser obfuscations.”

      Trudeau is an unstable and insecure little man, filled with fear.
      If Parliament begins questioning him openly, and the Media call him to task for his manifest failures, he will collapse.

      In the meantime, he will continue to express his views: Stop making me hurt you. You WILL kneel before ME.

      If Parliament grants him continuing Emergency Authority, the carnage of his dictatorship will destroy Canada.

    I read just now that, during the protes in Ottawa, a small bunch of people staged a counter protest, yelling at the truckers.

    This isn’t surprising. it’s what ‘they’ do. The vegan latte-sipping and purple-haired uni student sets have fondly and enthusiastically embraced protest as a means to push the leftist agenda for many years, yet seem less than happy about protests when it’s conservatives and/or working class people doing the protesting.

    But back to the bewildering trans rights protest. The writer seemed bemused by it, as were the truckers apparently. Much head-scratching was devoted to figuring out their motives. Maybe they just wanted a little of the limelight? Maybe, but I don’t think so. I think it was much more dangerous. I think it was a provocation. The counter protesters were there in hopes of getting a response that could be dressed-up by the media as evidence of the truckers’ far-right nature. They chose an issue which, they thought, was most likely to provoke a response that would feed Trudeau’s false narrative. Thankfully, it failed. All they got from the truckers was, “What?”

    Funny, maybe, but also deeply disturbing. The lengths these people are prepared to go to in order to maintain their lies and further their leftist agenda, even crushing ordinary workers who have the ‘wrong’ opinions, is appalling.

      A truck convoy is much harder to infiltrate under a false flag and smear because there is a precondition to join. You have to have a huge truck. Counter protests do not work on truck convoys. The 6 Jan protest was much easier for the far left operatives. And it worked because the media were part of it. Not so in Ottawa. Besides, it was -20C! What are you going to do, sing about Global Warming as in COP Copenhagen?

      Steve,
      We need to come up with a more effective way of communicating with the Left wing/Fooled wing. Honking horns and marching did not and will not communicate the issues (to the Left/Fooled wing) and did not appear to change many minds. The blocking of roads, was the excuse/logical reason that enabled Trudeau to stop funds that could have been used for more sophisticated and effective communication.

      We are losing a cold war with China, the most powerful/richest country on the planet. China has gained control of the news media/internet companies in almost every country and has control/strong influence over most governments. This is a propaganda/ideological war. We are losing because the news media and government institutions are controlled.

      Covid was an attack to cause chaos in our country and to destroy our economies. The RNA vaccines are dangerous and they do not provide long term protection against covid. FDA first release RNA vaccine testing was criminally negligence. The FDA did not force Pfizer to analyze the blood samples taken from each vaccine test patient for biomarker changes. Standard tests for biomarker changes would have proved that the vaccines are inappropriately causing complex problems in the body. This fact should stop all first release RNA vaccination now.

      The first release covid vaccines are obsolete because everyone in every country has had or will get exposed to Omicron. Omicron is 1/10 as deadly as the Delta variation because it has 32 mutations on the covid spike. Exposure to Omicron, unlike the first release RNA vaccines, provides long term (years of protection) for covid.

    A small definitional point of order:

    Are you a “dictator” if you do mean and unfair things that the large majority of your citizens want you to do?

    I think we overemphasize Trudeau in all of this. This is simply Canada, the Canadian national character, on display.

      You are correct. Canadians have been drifting this way for at least 2.5 decades. I lived not far from the border for a decade in the mid 1990s on and knew a few Canadians, personally, plus talking to Canadians when I visted Victoria or Vancouver. I was often surprised by their views on economics, government, and the U.S. itself.

      One of their persistent grips when talking economics was why the Canadian dollar purchased so much less than the U.S. dollar at the time. I tried to explain that this was almost entirely explained by welfare/social policy in Canada, which would probably lower expected returns compared to equivalent investments in the U.S., ceteris paribus.

    More from Eastern Europe

    “You have to admit that our so-called “experts” at State didn’t foresee this one. It puts the US and the rest of Europe into an entirely-untenable situation, but isn’t far from what I expected — recognition of the parts of the Ukraine that were and want to be Russian as, effectively…. Russian.

    By “recognizing” their Declaration of Independence the label aggressor can no longer be applied to Russia since an independent nation can ask for military assistance and there is no harm or foul (Kuwait anyone?); if any of the other fine folks start shooting to stop it Russia’s response to that is now defensive. Reports are that they have done exactly that, inviting in the Russians as “peacekeepers.” How true that said request was made is, of course, unknown.”

    Trudeau declared emergency (war) powers to ensure Canadians can go about their business and lives free from a supposed illegal blockade.
    He has now replaced this illegal blockade with a legal blockade stopping Canadians from going about their business and lives.

    Let’s hope little Trudeau has received this message from Cristian Terhes and is now having mental images of a fleeing Ceausescu pursued by the population until he and his miserable peasant wife met their end in front of a stone wall.
    As for the head of police in Ottawa, his promise to act like the SS police and pursue the truckers and their supporters from this time forward should cause him to review his future in Canada. Or anywhere else.

    Trudeau won the vote in parliament.
    https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-emergencies-act-vote-1.6359243
    Now Canada’s main hope is the court system (I have no confidence in the court system.

    But the most interesting things to me about the parliamentary vote are that (a) the NDP supported Trudeau “reluctantly” and say they will “pull our support as soon as … the act is no longer needed” which is a bad joke because now Trudeau has their vote in the vote that the constitution required he will make surecthere isn’t another vote. And (b) that a Liberal MP didn’t really support the motion but voted in favour to avoid a general election. In other words he didn’t vote on the merits and voted only for his own comfort.

    Scum.

      In spite of that, more people are properly informed of the facts thanks to the truckers. Now it’s up to the people to vote the despot government out. Same applies in other Western countries. The message is clear. We can no longer trust major parties let alone the MSM. Vote accordingly or else put up with worse and worse despot governments. You choice. Make it wisely before it’s too late.

    Hi Jo,

    I despair.

    It’s time that we acknowledged the Real Science.

    Human Origin CO2 cannot and does not create any heating effect in the atmosphere.

    That’s the true thermodynamics of the matter.

    As I have outlined here on numerous occasions in the past,

    even IF the crazy Photon Spraying mechanism was true, the unbelievably small quantities of human origin CO2 makes any thought of a thermal contribution a deceitful nonsense.

    If Will Janoschka was here he would demand that we find and state the temperature of this so called photon unloading mechanism in CO2.

    People might be surprised.

    I admire and respect those who are pushing back against the abuse of the public through false memes, but it’s time we went deeper and put the understandings of Will, Bob Carter and Murray Salby into play to expose the Untruths.

    I met, shook hands with and had my photo taken with Lord Christopher;

    his work is outstanding but he only goes as far as dismantling the mathematics of the UNIPCCC CAGW meme.

    The underlying scientific truth of the matter hasn’t been part of his work.

    John H, who posted here many years ago was similarly qualified to me. “Harbs” was known to Cohenite who still visits here occasionally.

    There’s a bigger truth that is being hidden from the taxpaying public and in a supposedly free society that’s very worrying.

      Why greenhouse gas warming doesn’t break the second law of thermodynamics

      So what is the Second Darn Law?

      And 500 more comments that repeat the same circles.

      Keith. This is off topic, could you please read my posts on it, and take it to unthreaded. The physics hasn’t changed in ten years. If people want to debate you there, they can. Even you give up the thermodynamic assertions and fall back immediately to the logarithmic effect of CO2 being largely saturated, which I agree with, but which has nothing to do with the second law of thermodynamics. The big effect of CO2 comes through kinetic collisions. Is there any mechanism where CO2 molecules can roam the sky but somehow avoid hitting an N2 or O2 molecule? How could that be — Molecules that can steer? Obviously through random collisions they give up the extra energy and thus create a tiny bit of local and temporary warming. Skeptics need to get their science right.

      In my world atoms fire off photons in all directions randomly. They don’t ask where they are headed.

      People now believe that there are photons that shoot out from atoms like golf balls in all directions.

      Anyone who bothered to study real physics would know that there’s no such thing as a photon.

      As Will J would put it: there’s a waiting energy potential, waiting to be invited to go off in the singular direction of the attracting lower energy potential.
