Trudeau Deploying Anti-Terrorist measures against peaceful protestors “When you can’t peacefully protest that’s a threat to democracy”

Important Takeaways:

  • Decorated Canadian Veteran And Pastor: Trudeau Has Declared War On His Own People
  • ‘My parents escaped from Germany under the Nazis and Communists. I’ve seen real terrorism. Our freedoms are at stake here,’ military chaplain and decorated veteran Harold Ristau told The Federalist.
  • On Feb. 14, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act
  • The Canadian government has also deployed anti-terrorist banking measures to shut down the personal and crowdfunding accounts of those involved in the protests.
  • Canadian police arrested nearly 200 protesters Sunday and threatened those who brought their children to the Ottawa protest with up to five years in prison.
  • In response, convoy organizers announced an orderly departure from the nation’s capital
  • As a Canadian veteran — he is now a civilian chaplain supervising Canadian military chaplains — threatening to use war powers against one’s own citizens is a clear breach of law and public trust, he said.
  • It’s also dangerous to a democracy, in which governments are supposed to wield their powers under the rule of law and with the consent of the governed. Yet “from the get-go Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has treated [the Canadian truckers] like terrorists,” Ristau said on the program. “You don’t negotiate with terrorists.”
  • Violence related to the protest has been largely used by those opposed to the convoy and its counterparts in other parts of Canada. Perhaps the most significant act of violence was when a man allegedly drove an SUV headlong into convoy supporters, injuring four.
  • While the Royal Mounted Canadian Police cleared Ottawa streets over the weekend, they trampled several protesters with their horses, including an elderly woman with a walker, according to the Toronto Sun. Police also beat journalists while clearing the streets over the weekend, according to videos.
  • “Over in Ottawa on Friday they were singing ‘A Mighty Fortress is Our God,” Ristau told The Federalist. “We have masses of people praying in front of the police as they come in and use pepper spray and rubber bullets on them.”
  • “Once you’ve named someone a terrorist, I guess you can just do what you want,” Ristau said.

Proverbs 22:8 “Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of his fury will fail.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Banks have started to freeze accounts linked to the protests, says Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland
  • In a final warning, finance minister says truckers at the protest will be stripped of their insurance

  • Citing terrorist financing laws, the government has forced crowdfunding websites and payment providers to register with the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), the government’s financial intelligence unit.
  • Using powers granted under the Emergencies Act, the country’s banks and other financial institutions have been ordered to stop doing business with people who are “directly or indirectly” associated with the anti-vaccine mandate protests that have seriously disrupted Ottawa’s downtown core.

El Salvador President shocked to see armored vehicles used to stop peaceful protests calling it authoritarian behavior

Proverbs 22:8 “Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of his fury will fail.”

Important Takeaways:

  • El Salvador President on Ukraine: ‘The Real War Is in Canada’
  • Nayib Bukele, the president of El Salvador, said on Sunday the crisis in Ukraine is just a distraction, while the “real war” of interest to free people around the world is being fought over authoritarian coronavirus mandates in Europe, Canada, and the United States.
  • Bukele is quick to call out authoritarian behavior in North America and Europe, perhaps because he has been accused of authoritarianism himself, so he views his critics as hypocrites. For example, in February 2020 Bukele sent troops into the El Salvadoran parliament to pressure lawmakers into voting for a bill that would fund his programs against gang violence.
  • Bukele was especially horrified by footage of French riot police rolling in armored vehicles against a protest styled after Canada’s Freedom Convoy demonstrations
