If the prime minister of a North African or Middle Eastern nation was forced into hiding by a protest occupying his capital city, Dick Cheney and Hillary Clinton would materialize from thin air to call for U.S.-backed regime change. “Government Loses Popular Support,” newspaper headlines would blare, amid calls for sanctions, State Department-NGO initiatives and the inevitable “nation-building” exercises. Justin Trudeau can rest easy, however. No such song and dance routine is in store for America’s northerly neighbor despite thousands of protesting truckers in Ottawa sending the prime minister underground. While imagining intervention in America’s northerly neighbor rightly seems risible, it
It’s Thursday in North America, and the truckers are going nowhere. Did The Simpson’s predict this soon-to-be international protest? Are the Canadian military about to intervene? What is happening in Saskatchewan? Trudeau Hasn’t Called in the Military…Yet. Prime Minister-in-hiding Justin Trudeau has denied that he intends to send Canada’s troops to clear protestors from Ottawa. Capital Police Chief Peter Sloly admitted many protestors left the area throughout the week, but at least 250 remain. Numbers are expected to swell again this weekend. And while Trudeau has toyed with the idea, there has been no formal request for a military intervention.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau still in hiding, Canada’s main news network is claiming the Freedom Convoy is a Russian operation, and Facebook is trying to stop an American Freedom Convoy from organizing. US Truckers Censored by Facebook. A Facebook group dedicated to organizing an American trucker convoy from California to Washington, D.C. has been removed by Mark Zuckerberg’s platform. The group’s organizer, Jeremy Johnson, called the move “censorship at its finest,” during an interview with Fox & Friends. Johnson’s personal account was also removed from Facebook. He has contacted a civil rights attorney to discuss next steps against the platform.
The Freedom Convoy 2022 is an ongoing protest in Canada, wherein truckers from across the country are joining forces to demand the return of the nation’s freedoms from COVID-19 vaccine mandates and more. One specific vaccine mandate was introduced into law in Canada on January 15th, and requires truckers to either accept the experimental vaccination or quarantine for two weeks every time they enter in the country. More than 16,000 truckers may lose their careers should the mandate remain in place. U.S.-Canadian Border Blockage Deemed “Unlawful”. Earlier on Tuesday, the Freedom Convoy reached the U.S.-Canada border between Alberta and Montana.
Vice President Kamala Harris has begun to take calls on behalf of President Joe Biden, raising questions about his ability to do the job of President. The White House published a readout yesterday entitled “Readout of Vice President Kamala Harris Call with President Emmanuel Macron of France.” It states: Vice President Kamala Harris spoke today with President Emmanuel Macron of France, and expressed her commitment to strengthening bilateral ties between the United States and France and to revitalizing the transatlantic alliance. Vice President Harris and President Macron agreed on the need for close bilateral and multilateral cooperation to address COVID-19,
After the recent G-7 Summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau raised eyebrows when he gave a blistering press conference calling out President Trump for his protectionist tariffs. Trudeau’s remarks were met by some, uh, colorful language by a senior member of the Trump administration, who was none too pleased by the Canadian leader’s political grandstanding. While I share the concerns of many about the potential impact of a trade war, and I consider free trade to be a cornerstone of American prosperity, Trudeau’s press conference brings to mind a certain proverb about removing the plank in one’s own eye before
