While Trudeau has since rescinded his martial law order and the world has moved on, distracted by the shiny object of the Globalist’s darling, Ukraine, it is worth reviewing the threat this move poses for free countries.
New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Americans should not only be concerned with but greatly alarmed by Trudeau’s declaration of martial law in Canada. His actions over there have repercussions here, a Nation that resides next door.
A declaration of martial law could happen here, but the presence of tens of millions of armed citizens operates as an extraordinarily powerful deterrent against the imposition of it if the Government’s inducement for it were grounded on the notion the armed citizenry itself posed an imminent threat to it.
Yet, given the nature of events at home in the U.S. this past year, under a feckless, corrupt, inept, idiotic Administration and an equally feckless corrupt Democrat-Party controlled Congress, the Government could attempt it.
If the Biden Administration is that stupid, a rebellion would ensue—no doubt about that. But it will be the Government’s call. The Government will have to be the instigator of violence against the American people.
Americans will not suffer tyranny. That much is clear. The question is how far will this Government go in testing the citizenry’s patience? At what point would the Government feel brazen enough to take the risk by pushing the American people against a wall?
There are forces both here and abroad that would love to see the Biden Administration call for martial law, as the Trudeau Government did, notwithstanding here, as there, lack of sound reason—or even flimsy pretext—to do so.
Americans have certainly witnessed in the last few years a clear and callous constriction of their fundamental rights and liberties.
But the Federal Government hasn’t dared to strangle a person’s life by freezing his or her bank account—at least not yet. And, a truck strike, such as the one in Canada, is not likely to result in anything of the sort occurring here in the U.S. for the very reason that tens of millions of Americans possess firearms. The Canadian citizenry does not. Americans would not tolerate a massive attack on their ability to provide for themselves and their families as a means to subjugate them.
Recent events in Canada mark a major step forward in a massive, albeit secretive global enterprise that transects and transcends the needs, desires, and wishes of the commonality of all western first-world countries. The goals of that global enterprise are incompatible with the needs, desires, and wishes of the common people of those countries.
Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, declared martial law in Canada on February 15, 2022. He delivered the declaration of martial law coolly, caustically, perfunctorily, in monotone as if reading a script prepared for him by others, which it undoubtedly was.
This declaration of martial law could have been avoided if Trudeau had deigned to meet with spokespeople for the truckers, allowing them the courtesy of airing their justifiable grievances to which, as citizens, they were certainly entitled. That would have obviated the need for an irresponsible, horrific response to their strike—a peaceful act of civil disobedience.
But, then, the declaration of martial law wasn’t something to be avoided. It was precisely what Trudeau wanted—or rather, and more to the point, it was what those pulling Trudeau’s strings wanted.
It was what the Deep State Globalist ruling elite wanted—the imposition of totalitarianism on Canada. And the Truckers’ strike gave the Globalists the pretext they needed and wanted.
Still, the rationale for it from a legal sense, let alone ethical sense, is problematic and the implications of it for both Canada and other western nation-states, including, and especially ours, as Canada’s closest neighbor, is deeply troubling.
This is no small matter. It marks an unprecedented step backward—to outright barbarism—and it is a dire omen for Americans.
And, what was the rationale and motivation for Trudeau’s invocation of Canada’s “Emergencies Act?”
The Conservative Institute says this:
“Canada’s embattled tyrant Justin Trudeau declared martial law Monday in a desperate bid to crush the truckers who have been protesting his COVID mandates for more than two weeks.
Effectively labeling the protesters terrorists, Trudeau announced he would invoke a never-before-used law, the Emergencies Act, that would give him the power to ban public assembly and freeze the bank accounts of anyone helping the demonstrators.
The Emergencies Act can only be invoked in a dire emergency” that ‘seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians.’ It has never been used in Canada’s history.
By invoking it Monday, Trudeau was essentially declaring peaceful demonstrators who have blockaded the capital of Ottawa to demand an end to COVID restrictions an unprecedented threat to Canada’s security. He laid out a series of extreme measures to deal with the ‘threat.’
Trudeau warned that protesters who fail to obey his orders could lose their vehicle insurance and have their personal bank accounts frozen without a court order. Tow truck drivers could also be coerced to cooperate in breaking up the demonstrations. The authoritarian measures, Trudeau said, are ‘necessary and responsible,‘ and would be ‘time-limited.’”
See also the article in NY Post.
Trudeau’s invocation of martial law in Canada does not, in his very utterance of it, speak of the need for it, but begs the question,
“ ‘Can it truly be said the security of Canada is threatened by largely non-violent protests? Certainly, our sovereignty and territorial integrity are not at risk.’” See article in the New York Post, citing, “Leah West, an assistant professor at Carleton University in Ottawa,” who pointed out that “‘The federal government [of Canada] must consult with provinces and Cabinet must believe the protests rise to the level of a national emergency.’”
And, there’s the rub. The territorial integrity of Canada was never at risk.
Trudeau apparently never did this. He never consulted with the Parliament and with the Canadian Provinces, as he is required to do. In fact, Parliament would not have granted authority in any case. See article in Lifesitenews. Many critical questions are raised that have gone unanswered.
“Conservative Party interim Leader Candice Bergen. . . suggested that Prime Minister’s antics were unneeded & making the situation worse, [asserting, on January 16, 2022] in the Canadian Parliament, ‘Yesterday, I noted that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would have to get approval from the Canadian Parliament to enact the odious ‘Emergencies Act.’ Given the fact he heads a minority government and that many Canadian citizens support the goals of the Freedom Convoy protest, Members of Parliament may not be too keen to grant it.
It appears I was right. Less than 24-hours after declaring wide-ranging powers, including terror finance laws to defund the trucker, Trudeau came to parliament to persuade them to support his move.’”
Trudeau responded with blather, completely dodging Bergen’s pointed queries. Bergen even noted that there were significant developments that negated the need to invoke the Act:
- The Coutts border between the US and Alberta has been cleared.
- The Ambassador Bridge is fully
- Ontario is ending its vaccine mandate.
When Trudeau explained he was implementing the “Emergencies Act” for the safety of Canadians, he was booed loudly. When he said he was demonstrating exemplary leadership, there were laughter and jeers. The Speaker of Parliament had to step in to quiet the uproar several times.
Interim Conservative Party leader Bergen made one exceptional point: What if what Trudeau is doing makes things worse?
Indeed, the situation appears to be poised to be far more problematic as the truckers remain defiant.”
See article on the website, legal insurrection.
Indeed, the situation is problematic! Martial law shall exist in Canada indefinitely. The Globalist masters have tightened the noose around Canada, just as they have done so in Australia, New Zealand, and as they are doing so in the EU. Now enter stage left, Ukraine. Is Putin moving against the global cabal that controls Ukraine, the same cabal that gives Trudeau his marching orders?
Only the U.S. remains obstinately, indefatigably resistant and defiant to despotic rule. Shall it remain so?
