The Freedom Revolution

By Michelle Hazekamp

February 22, 2022

On Fire for Freedom!

Canada is on "Fire for Freedom" as they have taken the world lead in the fight against mandates. On January 22, 2022, thousands of Canadian truckers from all provinces joined forces to create what is known as "The Freedom Convoy" that converged on Ottawa January 29, blockading Parliaments Capital Hill. In the first week it was estimated 50,000 trucks were involved, joined by thousands of pedestrian protestors and blockades along the U.S../Candadian border and provincial capitals.

Extreme Lockdowns

Through out the pandemic, Canada has been under some of the most extreme Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions, similar to Australia. The main-stream media has deliberately censored this knowledge from the world, and social media video's and posts have consistently been removed by big tech censorship as they "fact-check" our First Amendment rights away. In the way of protest, we really have not seen anything significant from the Canadians and most have assumed that the Canadians have succumbed to socialism, until now.

Churches Burned

Some of Canada's provinces imposed harsher lock-downs and restrictions than others. For example, according to Wayne Peters, a citizen journalist and resident of Saskatchewan, in the spring of 2021 all businesses were still closed and people were not allowed to leave their homes other than for grocery's or other very limited activities. Vaccine and mask mandates were in strict force and vaccine passports became the regulatory mode of limited freedom. In Alberta, Pastor Artur Pawloski was arrested for the first time of many for "inciting" people to go to church. His church, among many others, was burned to the ground. Pastor Pawloski continued to hold services in barns and other buildings, and continued to get arrested, as he still proceeds to resist to this day.

As of February 9, 2022, both Saskatchewan and Alberta succumbed to the Freedom Convoy and have ended their Covid-19 restrictions and vaccine passport mandates.

It was Never About the Virus

Most of us came to realize early on that these restrictions and mandates were never about a virus, rather a power-grab from elite politicians world-wide who were given opportunity to take control in the midst of a "plandemic". As the people of Canada and the rest of the world have grown restless over these tyrannical extremes, a proclamation of required vaccine passports to cross the U.S./Canada border was the final nail in the coffin. From the beginning, the repercussions to the socialist agenda has been a massive world-wide movement for freedom un-like any before, as we are truly living in historical times. For two years we have spoke up, resisted, rallied, peacefully protested and declared our God given rights with not much success. But to our surprise, the Canadians are the ones who came up with a most brilliant plan of resistance and have sounded the trumpet that has been heard around the world!

Holding the Economy Hostage

What better way to make a statement of non-compliance than to hold the economy hostage by way of a halt to the supply chain, especially when that supply chain exports 664.16 billion dollars worth of goods into the U.S. every year. Most importantly, this is a massive show of unity on the grounds of freedom, considering only 10% of Canadian truckers are unvaccinated. As thousands of vaccinated and unvaccinated truckers and citizens stand together and demand the freedom to choose, they, have taken on their civic duty to become lesser magistrates. What began as a stance for freedom in Canada quickly became ground zero for the world and we have not seen anything this exciting since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

Trampled by Horses

As the Canadians protest was more of a celebration with music, dancing, food, fellowship, etc., the police have not been so kind. Police in Ottawa have broke windows, slashed tires and been very aggressive towards the peaceful protestors. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police at one point charged into crowds this past weekend with their horses and pedestrians were trampled. Many were hospitalized and one victim died from her injuries, and the organizers of the convoy were all arrested along with hundreds of others. In Michigan, truckers began to blockade the bridges responsible for almost all transport between the borders last Saturday.. Police began to make arrests and tow the trucks away, with the aid of our heathen governor, Gretchen Whitmore, and on the Canadian side the bridges, there are reports of millions of dollars worth of destruction to equipment (not part of the convoy) done by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Greater Concerns Regarding our Tyrannical Leaders

These past four weeks have brought to light greater concerns in regards to what we are facing with our tyrannical leaders. As millions of dollars were donated to and in efforts to support the truckers, Trudeau managed to freeze the funds, however, the official narrative is that the two funding sites were "hacked." Names of $92,000 donors were released and published in several journals, including the Washington Post. Names, postal codes and email addresses were released to the public, the majority of them U.S. citizens. Prime Minister Trudeau also had police documenting DOT numbers, cancelling insurance policies, licenses, authorities and freezing truckers and their employer's bank accounts. Arrests began in Ottawa on Saturday along with the towing of trucks. People don't realize how great of a sacrifice this is to all truckers participating and the full extent of the repercussions. Not all truckers participating in the convoys (world-wide) are independent drivers. Many work for companies that hold a fleet of trucks, and by cancelling insurance, authorities, etc., whole companies are being shut down, not just the truck that is residing at the protest site. When a government entity can take this much power illegally to destroy a movement that is not only legal, but peaceful with no reports of violence, it should scare the hell out of you or raise a red flag at the very least!

Trudeau Unleashes the "Emergency Act"

What is even more alarming is on Monday, February 14, Prime Minister Trudeau, enacted a never before used emergency power, the 1988 "Emergency Act," This act allows the federal government to take “special temporary measures to ensure safety and security during national emergencies”. It is a temporary, 30-day measure that comes into effect immediately when invoked. But the Act must get approval within seven days from Canada’s Parliament. The Act defines a national emergency as “an urgent and critical situation of a temporary nature” that:

  • seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it”, or

  • “seriously threatens the ability of the Government of Canada to preserve the sovereignty, security and territorial integrity of Canada”

The emergency also “cannot be effectively dealt with under any other law of Canada”. So what constitutes a "threat" to the security of Canada?"

  • spionage or sabotage that is against Canada or is detrimental to the interests of Canada or activities directed towards or in support of such espionage or sabotage;

  • foreign-influenced activities within or relating to Canada that are detrimental to the interests of Canada and are clandestine or deceptive or involve a threat to any person;

  • activities within or relating to Canada directed towards or in support of the threat or use of acts of serious violence against people or property for the purpose of achieving a political, religious or ideological objective within Canada or a foreign state, and

  • activities directed towards undermining by covert unlawful acts, or directed towards or intended ultimately to lead to the destruction or overthrow by violence of, the constitutionally established system of government in Canada

Threats to the security of Canada “does not include lawful advocacy, protest or dissent, unless carried on in conjunction with any of the activities” above, the Act states. And just last night, the Canadian House of Commons voted along party lines to extend the emergency powers of Justin Trudeau, in a moment very reminiscent of Hitler's Reichstag Fire.

According to Senator Rand Paul, the Emergencies Act that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently invoked is "very, very dangerous" and similar legislation exists in the U.S. "We have the same sort of statutes here, and I have long-time been an opponent of these. We actually have in the United States an Emergency Act that allows the president to shut down the internet." said Paul during an episode of the BASED Politics podcast that aired Sunday.

Encouragement to the World!

The Freedom Convoy gave huge encouragement around the world as Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, France, Ireland, England and many other European countries quickly came on board and joined forces with their own Freedom Convoys. The U.S. Freedom Convoy is set to take off February 25th, beginning in California and making it's way to Washington D.C. by March 1st. The Convey will be joined by more truckers as they reach specific points in various states. The mission for the U.S. truckers is the same as Canada; to converge in Washington D.C. and barricade every street coming in or out until the vaccine mandates are lifted. As organizing of the event has been underway, on Friday, Feb. 18, Biden announced he was not lifting the "national emergency" order that was issued in March of 2020 by President Trump for the Covid pandemic. It will be interesting to see how this order will be weaponized further and directed towards the U.S. Freedom Convoy.

Canadians Are NOT Giving Up!

The trucks have now been confiscated and towed away in Ottawa, but the Canadians are not giving up. Thousands of pedestrian protestors continue to line the streets daily. Over the weekend another call to action was issued for a national "Walk Out," a battle cry to not go to work on Monday and to not return until the mandates are lifted as another way to hit the economy (and the elites pocketbooks). Another trucker convoy is being organized to converge on Ottawa once more with the current count of 10,000 trucks on board to set forth. The logging industry has also announced they are converging on Ottawa in a month, after their seasonal work
