Canada Votes To Continue Martial Law, Even As Elsewhere Rulers Signal Their Desire to Move On

I want to remind you that our side, except for niggling details, and except for the odd conspiracy theory or two we’re still waiting to have verified, has been right about everything. Try and remember this.

But also recall being right does not mean winning.

Canada voted to keep its martial law because “emergency” 185 to 151. The 151, I hope, have made contingency plans and have their monies in accounts not easily “seized.” Or is the euphemism “frozen”? You pick: either way, what was yours, my Great White North brothers, is now theirs.

What’s best is Tyrant Trudeau in asking to extend the emergency act admitted there was no current emergency. But, he said, there might be one. “In case the truckers come back,” he said.

In case.

Pre-crime necessitates the continuation of martial law. Says Tyrant Trudeau. Coming soon to a democracy near you? Wait. Don’t answer yet.

Even conservative NRO is reporting that “Trudeau Government Moves to Make Expanded Surveillance Powers over Financial Transactions ‘Permanent'”. Permanent is a long time.

Canadian finance minister Chrystia Freeland said that the government was using the Emergencies Act to broaden “the scope of Canada’s anti-money-laundering and terrorist financing rules so that they cover crowdfunding platforms and the payment service providers they use.”

So, coming to…wait…wait. I got one more.

Is it better to classify her as Canada’s AOC or Maxine Waters? I won’t debate. You pick. That she (like AOC or Waters) is there and voting is sufficient for me.

So, coming to a democracy near you?

Never mind. It’s a rhetorical question. The only thing we have to figure out is the form it will take in each democracy.

Say, remember how all classic authors spoke of how democracy invariably descends into tyranny? Remember—ah, the Hell with it. My heart’s not in it.

Let’s think coroandoom instead, since today is Tuesday.

Tyrant Trudeau will have to lessen unnecessary restrictions at some point. The honkening and martial law means the unnecessary restrictions will continue longer in Canada, in and around Ottawa anyway, than in other places. Bad news for them.

Spring is coming, though you’d never know it looking out the window, and with it the annual well expected quieting of respiratory bugs. Here, in the States, are the daily infections (still mistakenly called “cases”).

Mene, mene, shekel, Pfizarkin. Which means: the panic has been measured and been found wanting, and the number of its days are nearing their end.

Our rulers see it. You see it. The oligarchs see it; especially those who have felt the sting of lost money. That lack of unity at the top guarantees this crisis must end—though others will be rushed in to fill its place.

So, let go the mandates and needless rules? Like useless masks? No, says propaganda outlet The Atlantic. Or, rather, yes, they say. Yes, masks don’t work. But they help us identify our tribe. “Mask policies can still make sense, so long as they serve a community’s shared goals,” they say.

Well, it’s not a rousing endorsement of masks. It is a signal they still want them, but aren’t going to bleed for them.

The week’s favorite has to be from the chief of chiefs of all propagandist outlets, yes, the New York Times itself, cussing out the CDC for hiding data. “The agency has withheld critical data on boosters, hospitalizations,” they admitted.

Why? Because you, dear reader, cannot be trusted to gainsay Experts. If you saw the data, you might come to the wrong conclusions—-conclusions, I emphasize, that were decided upon before anybody, even the CDC, saw any data.

When the C.D.C. published the first significant data on the effectiveness of boosters in adults younger than 65 two weeks ago, it left out the numbers for a huge portion of that population: 18- to 49-year-olds, the group least likely to benefit from extra shots, because the first two doses already left them well-protected…

Two full years into the pandemic, the agency leading the country’s response to the public health emergency has published only a tiny fraction of the data it has collected, several people familiar with the data said….

But the experts dismissed the potential misuse or misinterpretation of data as an acceptable reason for not releasing it.

Strange they didn’t capitalize Experts, but we’ll let that pass.

Long-time readers will know the CDC hiding data is yet another conspiracy theory that has come true. Or, rather, been verified. I don’t know what your history of gambling is, but if I were you, I’d never bet against conspiracy theories anymore. You won’t win every time (like how vaxxes turn you into magnets), but you’ll do better than even the slickest card-counting blackjack player.

Late addendum.

Proving even Experts have a sense of humor.

I found today’s picture somewhere on Twitter but cannot rediscover where.

  1. And in the end, it is made clear that democracy really is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner

  2. How many MPs voted to continue martial law because they still think Justin is cute?

    The FOIA release is a giant middle finger.

  3. “… either way, what was yours, my Great White North brothers, is now theirs.”

    Yes – the state now has the power to appropriate at a whim, the sum total of a “citizen’s” entire life’s blood, sweat, tears and toil; 30 years of one’s labour, maybe 40 years or more. Just disappears at the whim of some faceless, unknown, smirking bureaucrat. Want to get it back? File a complaint? LOL. Why the general population tolerates this is beyond me.

    Don’t like it? Go stand in front of a horse and get trampled to death. Many of the Canadian police are celebrating it, according to reports of the messages they are sending to one another.

    Trudeau is a chicken hawk, like so many of the neocons out there. These folks think they are all powerful. With time, when the truth sinks into the general population (and it will), they will find out they are just paper tigers. If they are lucky.

    “You will own nothing and be happy”. Maybe this is why universities are introducing “Happiness” Professors; you know, to start the ball rolling.

  4. Marshall McCluhan’s most prescient statement:
    ” In America 1984 happened in 1930 and nobody knew it..” from his book The Media Is the Message
    which I read right around 1984. I didn’t fully appreciate it at the time but I do now. We’ve been
    asleep for a long time.

  5. Briggs: “…being right does not mean winning.”

    Too many hate the truth. And the Truth. They are enslaved by sweet little lies.

    “What’s best is Tyrant Trudeau in asking to extend the emergency act admitted there was no current emergency. But, he said, there might be one. “In case the truckers come back,” he said.”

    The Trucker Suckers have achieved results comparable to Trump’s Chumps: lured into a trap where their riotous antics gave a pretext for advancing the enemy’s agenda.

  6. The best case scenario is that Canada only uses these emergency powers to crack down on peaceful dissidents with the wrong politics.

    Human history has shown that the far more likely scenario is that assets are seized with minimal justification whenever an agency is running low on cash, or to disrupt an (equally woke) political opponent. Just adds a whole new layer of arbitrariness to the already arbitrary Anarcho-Tyranny of modern governments.

  7. Wow!!! Well said, Hagfish Bagpipe!! I had not thought of their convoy and the ramifications that could or would occur, in this way, though I was praying that they would stay within lawful boundaries. Dear God, please awaken the Canadians to the truth. Thank you!!
    God bless, C-Marie

  8. But… but… how are the fak-chakers chaking faks without the FOIA data…?

    Maybe all the pages of blacked-out data are really magic eye puzzles where if you stare at it long and hard enough it will slowly start to resemble the conclusion that THE SCIENCE ™ says it does?

    Is that how we become Experts? By developing this ability of diagnosing optical illusions?

  9. The narrative push for a second booster shot/”fourth dose” is getting pretty heavy.

    Always amusing to see the doctor brought on say “Well, currently the recommendations are just for the immunocompromised, and we do not at this moment think that more than the first booster shot is needed for the population at large. Some countries have moved ahead anyway, but there’s no sign that that needs to happen here.” The exact same way that the first booster was rolled out, and just like the first time the reports are always led with a title like “doctors recommend a fourth dose of COVID vaccines” without once mentioning this idea that it is restricted the immunocompromised.

    If you got the first set of the vaccine, it’s understandable. If you got the booster you are pretty gullible, especially if you did it after getting sick. If you’re on board with the second booster there’s no hope.

  10. Those of us intellectually part the old right (before I sobered up and returned to the Catholic Church) used to read such texts as Garet Garrett Ex America, the 50th Anniversary of the People’s Pottage.

    It is a quick, interesting and alarming read.

    In the introduction, Garrett observes that in the three months before the 1936 election of FDR, in which he won 63 % of the vote, Gallup asked voters in they thought his policies will lead to a dictatorship.

    45 % said yes. And then they voted for him.

    FDR gave the people the dictatorship they wanted even as Lincoln did before him and Trudeau is doing now.

    Garrett observes: The revolution is behind them (1938). It went by in the night of the depression, singing songs to freedom… They had forgotten their Aristotle. More than 2000 years ago he wrote of what can happen within the form, when ‘”one thing takes the place of another, so that the ancient laws will remain, while the power will be in the hands of this who have brought about revolution in the state.”

    That is a truncated paraphrase of Politics book IV Part V but it is as accurate as it is succinct.

  11. I only hope that if people can’t see that democracy is not desirable in and of itself that they will at least see that it is better that the right have the whip hand rather than the left.

    And, to repeat my endless refrain: repeal the 19th now and forever

  12. re: “The Trucker Suckers have achieved results comparable to Trump’s Chumps”

    Ah, no, as we find out. Trudeau reverses direction on Emerg -er- War Powers invocation:

    Because, “its about the Benjamins”, or the loonies:

    Noteworthy is the herky-jerky posture of “Freeland”, the VICE PM in the video; she is most distracting with her body movements – is she on something? Commenter posts on CT seem to lean to a ‘coke’ or speed addiction …

  13. Thanks for posting that. I was going to, but you beat me to it.

    I would say that the “Great Retraction” is about damage control after the hoi polloi just found out how easily the state-read banksters-can freeze, seize, steal, whatever you own, including crypto wallets, whenever they want. Kind of places a damper on the entire Central Bank Digital Currency idea, showing how easily people can be controlled and shut out from their accounts.

    This was supposed to be a very big part of the Covid Pass/digital ID being pushed by the WEF, uniting the passports with the financial system, and forcing a social credit score al la China. Now two graduates of the WEF’s Young Leader’s Program, Justin Castreaux and Chrystia Freeland, have inadvertently thrown a large wrench in that plan through their desire for total control.

    The bottom line is that nothing that you have in any financial institution is yours. When you deposit money there you are now an unsecured creditor to the bank/financial entity. This is black letter law. Have assets outside of the system in order to be able to operate independently. There’s a reason that folks in the depression kept cash in their mattresses and didn’t trust banks for a long time after.
