The Last Refuge
August 20, 2018
Under the auspices of making moves to block election interference from outside interests the government of Justin from Canada is moving to block internet content critical of Trudeau and his policies.
Simultaneously and ironically, the same Canadian government is spending millions lobbying U.S. politicians in Washington DC to retain their one-sided NAFTA trade benefits. Funny that, eh?
CANADA […] Among other things, the government wants to do more to ensure foreign actors or money aren’t involved in elections, require more transparency for political messaging on social media and prevent political parties from setting up ostensible advocacy groups to support them and help skirt spending limits.
[…] Among the options:
Those proposals go considerably further than C-76. The bill would prohibit foreign entities from spending any money to influence elections and prohibit anyone from knowingly selling election advertising space to foreign entities. (read more)
Consider this phrase carefully: “Among other things, the government wants to do more to ensure foreign actors or money aren’t involved in elections” … and now contrast that statement against this:
Huh…. Not funny, that!
This might raise an eyebrow:
Did you know it’s against Canadian law for U.S. banks to operate in Canada? Meanwhile, the Canadian government demands their banks be permitted to operate in the U.S….
Or, did you know that NAFTA is not actually a trade bloc of the U.S., Mexico and Canada? Instead NAFTA is merely an internal agreement of trade issues only between the three nations. This structure allows Canada and Mexico to engage with third-party-nations as brokers for access to the U.S. market. For the last 20+ years Canada and Mexico have exploited this agreement to benefit their own economy, exfiltrated American wealth, and done so without any regard for how damaging it is to the United States.
We are the host. They are the parasites. I digress….
Thankfully, we now have President Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump is the first, and only, U.S. politician who not only understands the flawed structure – but has also stated quite openly he is no longer going to allow it. Hence, the massive lobbying effort, and tens of millions being spent, by Canada into the U.S. seeking like-minded allies to eliminate the threat that is POTUS Trump.
Trudeau is increasingly unpopular, despite the Media Party’s best efforts. So he’s moving to shut down criticism of him online, including thru Human Rights Commissions censorship. Obviously the Media Party approves, and “civil libertarians” are silent. https://t.co/2mOBCJrQhq
