So, the results of my little experiment are that whenever I post anything mentioning China, even a post with just the word China in it, I immediately get views from China.
On the other hand, views from Russia seem to be totally random, and not related at all to what is in my post.
I get the majority of my traffic, followers and views, etc. from the USA and I wonder how many views from the good old USA are from various security agencies screening world traffic?
Anyway, I figure the folks doing the screening everywhere are probably more in my headspace than the Gia worshipping One World aliens colonizing the coasts, or southern Ontario in the case of Canada.
So where were we …, a couple of items rise to the top of the pit this morning amidst the swirling green pond scum of wealth and hellfare emanating from our nation’s towers of gub’mint. I think I will stick to developments and items not closely “covered”, or even intentionally ignored, by the MSM.
After all, why ever bother with the MSM and Facebook, and Google, and YouTube, and so on and so on … So I just point at the first item and you can visit it and maybe even read a bit of it as the mood take you.
Agencies from the U.S., Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand have documented evidence that the Communists knew about the outbreak in early December but tried to hide it. Gee! it really IS Red Bat Flu! Who Knew?
But of course, China continues to stonewall and deny everything, aided and abetted by all their customers and stooges in the media and foreign health care organizations, and other “useful idiots” like the WHO and the CDC. The Canadian Health Department(s) of course don’t even reach the enlightened heights of international prominence and are kept totally busy with their Mickey Mouse Club Chants scripted by the WHO, and speaking moistly.
And, second we have another smoke trail across the sky from China, through the WHO, to Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada … all one has to do is be willing to connect the dots … but that is a dangerous activity in Canada.
Wake up America – Canada has become a much bigger threat to American interests than Castro and the Cubans ever were. We are the Great White North backdoor standing wide open to any and all Chinese subversion. But, that’s nothing new, right?
I believe I can safely assume that the US will never completely hand over the keys to the asylum to the coastal elite, at least not without serious checks and balances.
Canada, on the other hand, has been a danger to her neighbours since at least the 60’s. Back then, my Boy Scout leader was actually a retired American Ranger and had a lot to say about all the other American expats popping up all over.
That was back when all those American scum-suckin’, bottom-feeding, Democrat voting, dope smokin’ cowards fled to Canada to avoid National Service, and were welcomed with open arms by the Commie Liberals in power, to stack the staff our Universities, Health Care Research companies, and lower level Academia.
They also showed up in my career path as well when many of them moved into major government leadership posts in the Department of Justice, and so on. Oh, right! My Bad … they were all “Political Refugees”.
That was quite the run-on sentence, wasn’t it?
We (Canada) have become a safehouse, and the super highway into the American heart for subversives and nerdowells of all stripes. So it comes as no surprise to see Justin doing the same sort of things. Like Father, like Son.
So, Justin’s Chinese “advisers” over at St. Patrick’s Street in what was once the Convent of the Sisters of The Good Shepherd, have been helping out with completing the latest changes to Canadian Media in the interest of “correcting” what gets broadcast and reported in Canada.
Warnings continue to multiply over the “insane” and “invasive” report that recommends Canada’s Liberal government register and regulate all internet media content providers.
A number of commentators in and outside Canada denounced the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review (BTLR) panel’s report released last week as a “breathtaking” and unprecedented plan to regulate the internet. ‘Watching an ally, a neighbor and a friend talk about regulating the free press shows where the far left wants to take, not just Canada, but any nation they control.’
The government-assembled panel of broadcasting experts chaired by Janet Yale was tasked with advising the Liberals on overhauling the country’s allegedly outdated broadcasting laws.
And they are not reporting to anything or anyone who appears to have anything do with media and communications. No, in Liberal “NEWSPEAK” we put the new Orwellian censorship proposals in a: “Letter to the Honourable Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry and the Honourable Minister of Canadian Heritage” rather equivalent to putting “BAD” news in the last section of the newspaper next to the underwear and lingerie adverts.
Since the last election, the Liberals have been mulling over implementing a widespread social media crackdown, despite no election “disinformation” problem. According to Twitter, the Canadian election faced no organized disinformation or election interference campaigns, even though foreign entities or persons intervened or participated on Justin Trudeau’s behalf.
This was Canada’s “Russia Interfered” moment, and even though it was a total bust our version of the Democratic party continue to push on through the quagmire. As reported by True North, a former Clinton aide took part in organizing a fundraiser in New York City on Justin Trudeau’s behalf while the election was underway. Further, Elections Canada estimated that approximately 103,000 non-citizens were on the voter list.
In spite of the complete lack of evidence, since the last election, the Liberals have refused to rule out forcing social media platforms into compliance with their demands to crack down on combating “disinformation”, even threatening to temporarily shut down access to the sites in Canada.
The Liberals devoted $48 million towards their efforts to monitor social media over the election period and much more since. Has anyone ever calculated the costs of changing legislation and regulations to suit the desires of the Natural Ruling Party?
Ahhh, it’s all just chump change anyway, just a part of Justin’s weekly expenses … after all, what’s a piddly 48 million when you routinely donate 300 or so million to Islamic terrorists? But whose counting anyway … and any questioning in that direction is just Islamophobia. And if you ever question a Trudeau well … you’re “Just a Piece of Shit” or you get told to “F- – K O – – ” or was that “Fuddle Duddle”? Oh well, like father like son, right?
O Get Over It, you little whiners…
Anyway, I expect we should not judge, not take sides, but simply have Faith and Trust in the King’s plan about which we really don’t know anything – it is, after all, “Above our Pay Grade”.
This, all this troublesome civil “bullshit”, is really not new. This situation appears to have been the case for centuries, and hopefully this next quote will shed some useful light on “The Plan” which we are expected and commanded to Trust that all of this is part of God’s plan. We are supposed to be learning something important in the midst of all this “travail”.
Are you, am I, feeling threatened by population controls and censorship? Maybe you and I are to too attached to our opinions and think too highly of our importance in the grand scheme of things … humility, humility, humility. Purity is pleasing to God, but humility is necessary to enter the Kingdom. It is all in God’s hands and part of God’s plan and it is our pride that gets us worked up about the daily drama of the world.
“74. … “And in order that thou mayest better understand the answer to thy doubt, remember, that there is neither any succession of time in my decrees, nor any need of it for the perception and the execution of them. (ed. God exists outside time in the eternal now)
75. … It is not expedient: that the knowledge of all things be given to one man, as long as men are viators (travelers or pilgrims in this world). … Yet, as I leave most men to work by their natural light, it must follow, that they understand these mysteries in different senses, and that there exist different explanations and different meanings regarding the different passages …
77. … “Take notice also, my spouse, that very often I permit and cause differences of opinions among the doctors and teachers. Thus some of them maintain what is true and others, according to their natural disposition, defend what is doubtful. … For this reason the fury of hell, with inconceivable envy (especially in these, our times), has raised its throne of iniquity, pretending to engulf the waters of the Jordan (Job 40, 18), and obscure the light of holy faith by heretical doctrines and seeking to sow its false seeds by the help of man (Matth. 13, 25). …
79. … But it would be very pleasing to Me and in harmony with my service, if learned persons would extinguish and do away with pride, envy and ambition after vain honors; also all the other passions and vices, which arise from them, together with the bad seeds, that are likely to be generated from that sort of occupation (Matth. 13, 25). But I do not root out this bad seed at present, in order that the good may not be rooted out with the bad.”

So, something to think about, Trust, perhaps the most difficult of virtues in a singularly distrustful, self-reliant world which has come to worship “Self” above even God.
I think some of us have an unfair advantage. I feel sorry for the civilian world. It is easier for those of us with a military background, after spending years sometimes, following orders without knowing the big picture, to accept that the “Plan” is above our pay grade and to Trust that the King knows what he is doing. Military personnel give up worshiping themselves or they simply don’t last.
It has been my experience that modern society, especially our academics, progressive bureaucrats and the “Brights” of our day look down from their tower of self, on we military and police, serving and vets, as “stupid” and “brainwashed” because we, the dogs in the backyard, learned honor and integrity, and volunteered to “go in harm’s way” to serve and protect others, even when those others hate us for our service … hmmm … the long haired screamers still offend even in their old age.
But we know that we chose to let ourselves be brainwashed, if that is what it is. To willingly accept the breaking down of the childish self and the rebuilding of that individual self into a member of a team with a purpose greater than the sum of the parts.
To accept the uniform code of military conduct without having to think about it, to make a habit of all the little sacrifices daily in order to advance unit integrity, effectiveness and putting the mission first. Service and sacrifice Ad Aeternitatem.
That is really the essence of self-sacrifice, even in the world at large. Just look at what any loving mother or father go through for their children, even when the children don’t recognize or understand the sacrifices. And look at the daily sacrifices involved in simply trusting God’s plan.
The Brights and their progressive societal hangers-on are more deeply brainwashed and simply can’t see their reality because it’s all dressed up in bright shiny cool stuff that folks hang on their “I love me” wall.
Everything and everyone that doesn’t agree with their world view is simply branded as “stupid” and Bulverised into oblivion. We just know that we are right, isn’t that so Justin?
But “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy” Hamlet, Act I Scene v.
And Trust in God’s plan is an important constituent in charity, that is Love in the Agape sense. That charity which accepts that the right things have to be done even though some will not thank you and will ridicule you even while accepting your protection and help. Trust in God’s plan lends patience and kindness even to trying situations.
4 Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; 5 Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never falleth away: whether prophecies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge shall be destroyed. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child. 12 We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known. 13 And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity. (1 Cor. 13: 4-13)
