Carrying the load for the whole of Western Civilisation

 

The Battle of Quebec, Queenston Heights, Lundy’s LaneVimy RidgeDeippeJuno, Moscow 1972, not to forget Laura Secord. And now the Battle of Parliament Hill, Ottawa. You don’t want to mess with Canadians, when they’re really angry. And they are really angry.

And bless them, they are carrying the load for the whole of Western Civilisation. 

I suspect the people who teach Canadian history don’t even know most of these moments, but what they show is that Canadians will not surrender when there is a battle before them.

    1. I think I know how this trucker rebellion is going to end. Hear me out.
    2. Two days in a row, Liberal MPs have publicly distanced themselves from Trudeau’s fiasco. He’s never had such a crisis before and he’s never mismanaged it so badly. Gerald Butts’ usual advice – smear everybody as racist sexist Nazis – isn’t working. It’s made things worse.
    3. No-one believes it anymore, especially when everyone can see for themselves how happy and Canadian the crowd is. They see thousands of Canadian flags but they hear Trudeau snarling about Nazi flags. Suddenly Trudeau looks old and out of touch.
    4. So Trudeau is abusing working people, minorities, independent thinkers. People who used to vote for him. I can’t get over the fact that 57% of Green voters love the truckers. Trudeau’s smiley mask has slipped; he’s shown his rage. Voters will never un-see that.
    5. Trudeau never apologizes (except for when he apologizes for other people’s sins). He is emotionally incapable of admitting he was wrong. He never has in his life. So he’s stuck as the angry guy. It’s not a good look. That’s 100% Gerald Butts.
    6. Trudeau is polling as the worst politician to deal with the crisis according to BOTH pro- and anti-truckers! (How is that even possible?)
    It’s a remarkable combination of insults, incompetence, and fleeing the city. Both sides blame Trudeau.
    7. But he can’t back down now. How can you call someone a racist sexist Nazi, and say you’ll never meet with them — and then meet with them?
    But that’s exactly what most people want Trudeau to do. Including half of the people in Ottawa!
    8. Trudeau has made outrageous threats and the Ottawa Police have disgraced themselves by carrying out those threats with shocking brutality. This video (80yo man being arrested) has 3M views in two days. This is Trudeau’s vibe now. But how can he back down? He can’t lose face.
    9. That video is bad enough. But imagine going truck by truck, extracting men, women and children? Here’s a vid from the Coutts border crossing. What’s Trudeau going to do — shoot them? Policing doesn’t work when the bulk of citizens don’t consent.
    10. So the truckers aren’t backing down. All Ottawa courts would do is end the honking. The Coutts and Milk River blockade probably have 5,000 people in the middle of the prairie. And now the single most important bridge in North America is locked down.
    11. I call it the most important because it carries 25% of Canada-U.S. trade on it — connecting the auto industry on either side of the Detroit River. And the bridge just happens to be privately owned, too.
    12. Trudeau has no clue what to do. He’s losing his cool. He’s losing voters. He’s even losing his MPs. Only the fools at the Ottawa Police and the Media Party are still marching with him. Gerald Butts is panicking — he’s lashing out and suing critics.
    13. But look at this! Vice President Jen Psaki (I think that’s her title) was asked about the truckers. And she didn’t do a Butts. She didn’t smear or slander or attack. In fact, she seemed to praise the truckers and pretend Joe Biden was one of them!
    14. For all her flaws VP Psaki can control her emotions, unlike Trudeau and Butts. Trudeau thought demonizing truckers somehow made him look better, so he doused the fire with kerosene. Psaki was conciliatory and friendly. Why?
    15. Again, because she can control her emotions. She doesn’t have a vendetta against Canadian truckers like Trudeau does. She just doesn’t want the Trucker Spring to spread to the U.S. She doesn’t want the political optics. She doesn’t want the economic carnage. She’s a grown-up.
    16. Imagine what a trucker rebellion would do in the U.S. Supply chain mess. Inflation. Unemployment. Visual proof of Biden’s economic failure on TV every night. Alienating working class voters Biden needs so desperately this November.
    Trudeau’s mess is creeping over the bridge.
    17. But the truckers are already changing the political climate. Half a dozen Democrat states just ended mask mandates. Democrats are looking for a graceful exit for Fauci. Biden doesn’t need this staring contest. And here, I predict, is how this ends:
    18. Biden gets the CDC to announce that The Science(TM) has evolved again, and St. Fauci now says truckers don’t need to be vaccinated to cross the border. Biden’s policies are working so well, they can be retired already! Biden is a friend of the working man!
    19. Biden saves the day. He saves jobs. He’s normalizing America! And the Teamsters will praise him. And because he didn’t demonize the truckers, he won’t lose face.
    But all cross-border trucks do round trips. So if Biden ends the vaccine mandate, Trudeau has to, as well.
    20. You can’t have a cross-border vaccine mandate in one direction. Biden will move, Trudeau will follow. He’ll say it was for Canada-U.S. relations, and that it wasn’t because of those racist, sexist, Nazi truckers.
    But of course, it will be. And everyone will know it.
    21. These Canadian truckers — and everyone cheering them on, despite the rage of the establishment — are saving Canada. They’re already making us more free. They’ve done more damage to Trudeau than the last two Conservative Party leaders combined. They’re a political tsunami.
    22. They’ve restored a sense of community in a country that Trudeau and Butts pitted against itself. They’ve restored a common purpose in a country where lockdown laws kept us isolated from each other. They’ve literally been a moveable street festival. They’re great Canadians.
    23. I mean, come on. Don’t you wish you were there?
    24. But what’s never happened before is these Canadian truckers will be responsible for making America a freer place. The daily TV images of the Canadian truckers have some paternity in the Democrats’ about-face on masks this past week. (What other intervening event did that?)
    25. But it’s those brave truckers on the Ambassador Bridge who put a fright into Biden and Psaki. In 1812, the last time Canada invaded the U.S., they sacked the place and burned down the White House. Psaki doesn’t know her history but Biden is old enough to have been there.
    26. To save the U.S. economy from a trucker rebellion, Joe Biden will lift his trucker vaccine mandate. Trudeau will have to follow, though he will be so enraged he’ll probably punch through the drywall.
    I can’t see much further into the future than that.
    What do you think?

  3. Steyn from a few days ago:

    In Ottawa, attempts by agents provocateurs to provoke violence at the Freedom Rally have gone nowhere. So last night, “anti-hate” buffoon Bernie Farber, friend to censors everywhere, was reduced to hate-hoaxing for Justin by circulating “anti-semitic flyers” sent to him by a “friend” “in Ottawa”. Inevitably, within moments, they were revealed to be from something entirely different in Florida some weeks ago. So Bernie explained that his imaginary friend in Ottawa had seen actual hate flyers in Ottawa but had accidentally emailed him a similar flyer from America or something… These days Farber disgraces even himself.

    Meanwhile, the Ottawa police have begun arresting citizens trying to deliver food to the truckers. There is no basis in Canadian law for the actions these goon coppers are taking, but the attitude of their dreadful police chief is: hey, the law is whatever I say it is. So he has ordered the arrest of citizens for “mischief”. By mischief, he means bringing sustenance or heat to protesters passing the night in temperatures of twenty below.

    ~Many parts of the western world are in a very dark place right now, but none more so than Canada. Its unseen prime minister, who came into office promising “sunny ways”, can no longer appear in public and sweepingly, tweetingly declares that he doesn’t need to because the sort of chaps you run into out there are rubes who don’t even know they’re Islamophobes, transphobes, thisaphobes, thataphobes, too dumb even to be aware they’re working for Putin.

    As Tucker and I used to joke five years back, across the developed world the elite rise up against the masses: it’s like an anti-1848, prefiguring the post-democratic era that the 2020s will usher in. The present showdown between the Bollywood Bridesmaid and the truckers who deliver his quinoa has made it about as explicit as you can get. The good humour in the face of elite contempt is impressive…….

    A serial blackface fetishist is calling the masses racist and the court eunuchs of Canada’s state-funded media dutifully tag along…….

  15. Living the dream – can you read & comprehend any material more complicated than the daily newspapers?

    If so – please allocate some time to get up to speed with the medical journals and clinical research papers, & learn a little about immunology & virology. The genetic “vaccines” that have been authorised under “emergency use” have not been subjected to the long process of clinical research trials of the traditional vaccines which all of us, and our children, have willingly accepted.

    What has occurred in the last two years will be bitterly regretted in the future.

    Again, if you are capable of any sort of research, you might read the Great Barrington Declaration & the Rome Declaration signed by tens of thousands of global physicians protesting against the adoption of unprecedented inoculations. These signatures include some of the most celebrated scientists, virologists, vaccinologists, immunologists, et al of our age.

  24. “Considered views above. Obviously none of you is aware that the requirement for vaccination has been with us for a very long time.”

    NONE of those ‘requirements’ restrict those who refuse the vaccine from doing as they wish ‘in private’ – need a measles vax to send your kid to a public school, and don’t want it? Go to a private school that doesn’t have that requirement, or even home school your kids. Your life can go on as before with some minor inconveniences.

    But the COVID vax mandate is much worse: it forces one to choose between one of two UN Universal Human Rights – the right to bodily autonomy and the right to earn a living. And is made worse by another UN Universal Human Rights violation – the ability to move freely with the state (country) in which you are resident.
    Australia signed up to the UN’s Universal Human Rights agenda decades ago. State governments are violating these human rights.
    AHRC says it cannot prevent state governments from doing so (I have an email from them stating this).
    (NSW) State Omsbudsman says (s)he can’t do anything either (again, response in an email)
    (NSW) Governor will not even acknowledge receipt of a request for where I can go to have these human rights violation addressed.

    You may not care in this particular case – it certainly appears you are with the Government(s) on this issue. When they come for you on something that matters to you, will you object? And if so, who will support you if you allow this outrageous situation to continue?

    They are telling you what you MUST wear in public (mask mandates), what you MUST ‘consume’ (get the vax!), and how you MUST behave in public (‘social distancing’) – and if you refuse, you are punished severely.

    My rights have been taken away from me (and you, and every other Australian) without due process.
    What’s next?
    The right to voice your political opinion?
    The right to vote?
    The right to own private property?
    Where is YOUR line, hmmm?
    And if you do not support my rights in this issue, why should I care about future rights violations against you that you do object to? And make no mistake, if they are allowed to continue with this hideous, unethical and downright evil campaign, they will not stop until you have no more rights than a medieval peasant – that is to say, none at all.
    Live in the pod.
    Eat the bugs.
    You will own nothing, and you’ll be happy.
    THAT is the future, if we let them do it.
    And you support them?

    Welcome to the blog.
    You do write like someone who identified as Iampeter, on a previous incarnation of this blog.

    So, so as not to sound like the idiot Iampeter clearly was, please read the Virology and Immunology chapters in Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, 20th Ed. – Kasper, Fauci, Hauser (2018)
    You’ll then learn about about the differences between true vaccines and adjuvant immunotherapies like Fizzer, AZ and ModRNA.
    Indications, modes of function, benefits, limitations and side-effects.

    You may then appreciate why most bloggers here disagree with you.

  37. And, so far, nil outrage about the “Mix ‘n Match” ‘vaccinations.

    I had 2 Astrazenica jabs, then went to my local pharmacy for the “top-up”.

    Pfizer!

    I asked the nice young lady about this and she assured me that it was compatible.

    She lied.

    The publicly available CMI (Consumer Medical Information) sheets for both the Pfizer and AZ inoculations, both clearly state that each of them have not been tested in combination with any other “vaccine” or medicine, let alone the combination being properly trialed with a control group. This is all on the TGA website, but everyone should be given a copy to read and understand BEFORE agreeing to get the jab, as part of the “informed consent” process.

    Also the CMI for the provisionally approved Pfizer inoculation states only that a third dose “may be taken AFTER 6 months” so it is all BS; “expert advice” being relied on when the government is trying to coerce people into taking it after 3 months.

    Therefore, taking a Pfizer “booster” after an AZ 2 dose course is pure experimentation, but you will never be told that by your doctor, as they have all been compromised by the blatant threat they have received from AHPRA, to follow the government narrative or be investigated and deregistered. ALL doctors, having taken the metaphorical “Kings shilling”, now have a conflict of interest and your health is not their primary interest.

    You’re completely wrong. On everything. Please stop having opinions. There are no vaccine requirements for *any* school in any state in Australia. There are some states that don’t allow unvaxed kids in pre-schools and childcare. None ban unvaxed kids from any education. That’s true for state schools as well as private schools.

    You’re an idiot. Like most people who believe in vaccines. Idiotic and evil.

    For the person who asked about the hepatitis B vaccine it’s simply a function of the fact that the vaccine program is disgusting and immoral through and through. Doctors – because they’re stupid – decided that the reason junkies got liver cancer was because they got infected with a virus called “hepatitis b”. They had zero evidence for this and a non-retard would have pointed out that shooting up toxins (aka heroin) would cause liver damage. But no. It had to be a virus. So they came out with a vaccine to give to junkies. Of course they did.

    But the problem is that junkies didn’t want it. And it was hard to convince them to get it. So instead they came up with the bright idea to give it to newborn babies. The only reason was because stressed out new mothers were already in a hospital and easy to bully into it. And then they told people that the vaccine would magically stop people getting liver cancer when they were older.

    The problem is, the infant hep B vaccine has been around for 30 years (the vaccine has been around for 40) and guess what? Liver cancer rates have skyrocketed in that time.

    That’s right. The vaccine is completely worthless. There’s far more evidence for it *causing* liver cancer than that it might prevent it.

    If it wasn’t a vaccine (which are all sacred cows) the people responsible would have been thrown in prison for such a catastrophic failure. Of course, nobody with any power even suggests there is any kind of a problem. If you point people to actual government liver cancer data they will call you a conspiracy theorist and a pro-plaguer.

    The truckers are ridiculous. They certainly are not “freedom” fighters. No freedoms are at peril here; people are free to opt out of vaccine.

    Good god you are an idiot, what makes you think you can talk down to other adults?

    90+%, of people in NSW were double vaccinated.

    The government lied, then took away some liberties again, now the definition of fully vaccinated is going to change.

    All for a strain of the common cold, which at least 20% of us have caught and at least 30% of us have natural immunity to (and double vaccination rates are around 95%).

    You are so full of shit it isn’t funny.

    NSW Parliament didn’t sit for six months and the executive kept on making new regulation defining civil liberties.

    Not since 1215 has the executive decided what civil liberties we have.

    You are too damned stupid to understand the gravity of these emergency powers. The fact that they are being used for a relatively benign illness is a sick joke.

    Like (Dr) Gilas said, the list of lies and contradictions that were and are anti scientific garbage, spouted by “health experts” and became the basis for coercive laws is very numerous.

    Anyone with a normal, happy life worth living has taken a huge loss in the past 23 months.

    In a less insane country, it would be over. Instead, Hunt, McGowan, Andrews, Chant and other associated loons are doubling down.

    They have no clue or concern about the damages they have brought upon us. Trust has evaporated. Businesses shut down. They’ve given actual antivaxxers ammunition for the next 30 years.

    Oh please. Give me a break. Your lies may fly with the morons but it is an objective fact that many kids have been excluded from school on the basis of them not being injected with substances the government wants injected to them. Maybe not on an enrolment basis, but certainly on a rolling whim basis depending on what the authorities allege is floating around in the school environment. Fact. At many times in the years you’ve lived on this earth, Australian kids have been at home rather than school BECAUSE they are not injected with a substance. It’s simply a fact honey.

    “When are children excluded from school?

    When there are cases of a vaccine preventable disease such as measles in a school, the local public health officer may request the principal to exclude any children who are not fully immunised against that disease during the incubation period (14 days for measles). In some circumstances, if unimmunised children can be immunised immediately they may be able to continue attending school, however if the window for this has passed the unimmunised children will need to stay at home. If no further cases arise the unimmunised children may return to school.

    Under the NSW Public Health Act, if an unimmunised child comes in contact with a vaccine preventable disease outside school, they can also be asked to stay home during the incubation period to reduce the risk of starting an outbreak. Again, unimmunised children can avoid exclusion from school if they can be immunised very soon after being in contact with the disease. The timeframe and exclusion policy varies by disease – see the NSW Health Disease Control Guidelines for more details.”

  49. “as the fuel cans now contained half fuel and half water”

    So, the “police” STOLE half of the fuel that they “confiscated” illegally, then returned containers of dangerously contaminated fuel to the rightful owners, presuming them to be silly enough to try to use that fuel in their engines and heaters.

    Those of us who have had to clear contaminated fuel from a diesel vehicle system would be VERY unhappy to be the recipients of such an act.

    MORE official, ORDERED and authorized criminal provocation.

    They WANT some one to snap so that they can go in and deliver serious “attitude adjustment”.

    THAT is how most modern governments work; State Terrorism.

  50. As I do not read aircraft engineering specs before boarding I similarly don’t feel the need to study medical texts. I have son with a PhD married to a PhD, both working in labs related to studies of immunology. I have met with the foremost Australian in this field and with a variety of doctors engaged in ICU. All of those people advise me to follow the public advice.
    Nothing here convinces me to question what I have been advised.

    So – you are “living the dream”, are you? I also have a PhD – & yes, I don’t read aircraft specifications before boarding an aircraft, either. But then, I have no reason to doubt the ability of the pilots and the maintenance of the aircraft. Nevertheless, it IS a leap of faith and plenty of aircraft have “gone down” for reasons of failures in maintenance and/or failures of flight personnel.

    I also realise we risk our lives daily when we assume modern technology trumps the ignorance of the past. Not merely motor vehicle accidents prove the point of our vulnerability – but medical “science” itself. People are injured regularly in hospitals from atrophic injuries caused by in appropriate treatment. Mostly, of course, we accept considerable risk in our lives.

    However, your inference that we live in a specialised age in which we confer absolute trust in experts is an ingenuous assumption. And, might I say, a fundamentally uneducated one.

    I do respect YOUR respect for your family involvement in labs involved in immunology, and your familiarity with various identities in the professional field.

    However, do you really assume that people on this blog (including this writer) do not have similar contacts? One such friend of mine is appalled that I should doubt “the Science,”although he concedes he is not surprised, knowing my infuriating desire “to know” all aspects of matters important to my health.

    Good luck to you.

    Untrue. Some people love this, because their lives were meaningless. Now you have elicited widespread unhappiness, we can assume harm.

    But there is no reason at all to think any government anywhere is part of a conspiracy.

    The national cabinet is literally a conspiracy – a secret meeting of people meeting to make decisions they were never legally empowered to do so in any State constitution, let alone the Commonwealth constitution.

    I have a couple of ex-junkie pals who would disagree vehemently. But they can’t because they came down with Hep B or C and cancer killed them.

    @ Fat Tony- This particular troll once posted under the account names ‘EllenG’ and later ‘Kim’ (amongst others) on the OldCat. Sinc got quite adept at smiting it, and its smoothbrained GetUp! script is pretty obvious.

    Some key characteristics include exclusively targeting anything posted by Steve Kates, writing off anyone who disagrees with it as being University types or Public Servants who have no understanding of commerce, and fetishising its apparent history as a sole trader/private enterprise. Even though it sounds like no small-medium business owner I have ever encountered.

    And the obligatory laying-on of all the scripted Pro-Gummint and Pro-Media talking points so thick, it has to be propaganda.

    Upset it sometime, and see how long it takes before it calls you a Putin puppet, as well… 🙂
