Ron Paul: Canada Suffers for Turning Militaristic

“Like the US PATRIOT Act, Canadian legislation that had been previously proposed to give the government more authority to spy on and aggressively interrogate its citizens has been given a shot in the arm by last week’s attacks,” Paul said. “Unfortunately Canada has unlearned the lesson of 1968: staying out of other people’s wars makes a country more safe; following the endless war policy of its southern neighbor opens Canada up to the ugly side of blowback.” –Dr. Ron Paul

Even Dr. Ron Paul can see how Prime Minister Stephen Harper has betrayed Canada and what it means to be Canadian. -LW

Paul, the longtime member of the US House of Representatives and thrice presidential hopeful, said in a tape-recorded address published on Monday this week that Canada’s recent willingness to join America’s fight against the extremist group calling itself the Islamic State marks a major departure from the anti-war ideologies that made the Great White North a destination for draft dodgers during the Vietnam conflict.Canada is quickly becoming an aggressive nation, former United States congressman Ron Paul warns in a recent dispatch, and will risk significant blowback if it continues to intervene in matters overseas.

Although Canada distanced itself from other NATO partners that were involved in the US-led campaign in Vietnam only four decades ago, its recent actions, Paul insists, mark a major departure.

“How the world has changed. Canada’s wise caution about military adventurism even at the height of the Cold War has given way to a Canada of the 21st century literally joined at Washington’s hip and eager to participate in any bombing mission initiated by the DC interventionists,” the former congressman says in a message posted to his toll-free “Texas Straight Talk” telephone hotline.

“Considering Canada’s peaceful past, the interventionist Canada that has emerged at the end of the Cold War is a genuine disappointment. Who would doubt that today’s Canada would, should a draft be re-instated in the US, send each and every American resister back home to face prison and worse?” Paul asked.

The longtime congressman’s remarks come on the heels of the nation’s decision to join the US in the fight against the group also known as ISIS, or ISIL, but also only days after Canada was turned on its side by no fewer than two violent outbursts that are being considered acts of terrorism: a man who recently converted to Islam drove his vehicle into a group of Canadian soldiers in broad daylight last week, killing two, days before another Muslim man opened fire at the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa, killing one.

 

“That is the danger of intervention in other people’s wars thousands of miles away,” Paul responded on Monday, “Those at the other end of foreign bombs – and their surviving family members or anyone who sympathizes with them – have great incentive to seek revenge.”

Adding to his argument, Paul quoted American lawyer-turned-journalist Glenn Greenwald as opining similarly last week that attacks on Canadian soil, as rare as they are, should be expected given the country’s ramped-up military action abroad during the last decade.

“Canada has spent the last 13 years proclaiming itself a nation at war. It actively participated in the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and was an enthusiastic partner in some of the most extremist War on Terror abuses perpetrated by the US,” Greenwald wrote for The Intercept, as quoted by Paul.

“Regardless of one’s views on the justifiability of Canada’s lengthy military actions, it’s not the slightest bit surprising or difficult to understand why people who identify with those on the other end of Canadian bombs and bullets would decide to attack the military responsible for that violence,” the journalist continued.

Yet Paul warns that what could come next may indeed be a surprise to Canucks: should Canada follow the precedent sent by post-9/11 America, then the contentious surveillance operations practiced in the US may soon seep north of the border.

“Like the US PATRIOT Act, Canadian legislation that had been previously proposed to give the government more authority to spy on and aggressively interrogate its citizens has been given a shot in the arm by last week’s attacks,”Paul said. “Unfortunately Canada has unlearned the lesson of 1968: staying out of other people’s wars makes a country more safe; following the endless war policy of its southern neighbor opens Canada up to the ugly side of blowback.”

On Thursday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest called the recent events in Canada Despicable terrorist attacks and said it’s important “that when it comes to dealing with terrorist activity that Canada and the United States has to be entirely in sync.”

Evil Conservative Radio: What Power Does the Common-Law Grand Jury Hold?

Light Worker 29501:

If you’ve heard of Common Law Grand Juries, but aren’t quite sure what they are or why we don’t hear about them (much) anymore, this article should help. -LW

Originally posted on Our New World:

There has been a lot of buzz this weekend after Carl Swensson and the common-law grand jury he convened in Georgia this weekend created a presentment of findings against Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetoro aka Barry Sutoro. A lot of the commentary that I’ve read has been dismissive of the efforts of Mr. Swensson, and so I thought I’d pass along a few viewpoints on this matter. Frankly, whether the presentment against Obama gains traction or not really isn’t the point… but rather that Americans are becoming so fed up that they are becoming creative in the effort to use our constitution for its intended purpose – limiting the power of our benevolent overlords in government who pretend to be above the law. May a thousand more Cark Swenssons rise up across America in the coming weeks to shed light on the darkness that has become our government.

Some Late-Breaking News for Aug. 14th

First, Alfred Webre from Exopolitics.com shared the following. It sounds encouraging and very interesting so I’ll be tuning in on the 19th. 

GOOD NEWS – THE WHITE HATS HAVE LANDED!

Randy Cramerz is a Capt in the US Marine Corps authorized by his command under Article 21 of the USMC Special Section Special Code, when 50% of the Constitutional Guarantees of the US are not functioning, to speak out publicly and warn against traitors and treasonous behavior against the USA.

This is evidence that White Hats at top levels of the US Government are now acting under power of law to restore lawful constitutional order to the USA. Mars experiencers Capt. Randy, Andrew D. Basiago, Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, and myself completed a media panel today with Mark Dr. Dream Peebler hosting covering in part how the secret US mission to Mars has been perverted to attempt to depopulate and destroy Earth civilization, that will be broadcast on Tuesday Aug. 19 on Awakeinthedream radio

Also from Alfred…

The police shooting in Missouri has sparked protests in Times Square, New York City, Union Square and other locations.

5-Minute Speech that got Judge Napolitano Fired from Fox News [video]

Thanks, Nick.

You know your country is in trouble when the only way you can go on television and tell the truth is to formulate the information as a question—and you STILL get fired!

Don’t worry, Judge, there’s a better place for you. You nailed it on every single point. Hopefully a few were listening and realize that you’re spelling “TYRANNY”.  ~ BP

Super Security in Washington has People Spooked July 4th; Be On Your Toes

From America: Where Are You Now on Facebook… check out the page for photos

https://www.facebook.com/groups/AmericaWhereAreYouNow/permalink/604137193037496/

This account is from an awakened one who visited Washington yesterday and they feel like something is up.  ~ BP

“They had a huge fence around the DC area and around the National Mall on July 4, 2014, to funnel people through security checkpoints (I ended up having to go through 6 just to get to the central area of the national mall, which is funny because if I’d gone through the Smithsonian Station, I wouldn’t have had to deal with that bullshit unless I wanted to see the Memorials). The sad part is that they had a maze of fencing and checkpoints just to get to any of the war memorials. The checkpoints were TSA-style, complete with BOTH bag checks and wand-to-body checks. If for some reason you set off the wand scanner, they pulled you aside and gave a choice of leaving the area or getting a full pat-down…complete with a canine on your heels. Some of those dogs were NOT friendly. There were also military patrols all over DC…

IT WAS FUCKING INSANE.

And then they had USAF-SF and MP’s located all along this fence (some solo and some in groups of 2-4 personnel), watching and scanning the crowds and making sure no one tried to scale their precious fence.

Seriously, I understand securing DC on J4 and I have seen J4’s security before, but this SHIT was fucking insane! This was very close to a police state….they’re getting ready for something. And I’m not imagining this shit btw–I actually overheard several say they were uneasy about being assigned like this and that “there’s something going on that has everyone freaked”.

–so much for those Humvees on the train being shipped overseas….looks like a lot of them are staying here”

You may wish to visit the Watchmen of America web site and the chatroom there. The members share interesting intel and articles from blogs and websites.

Note though, that while on “High” alert, it is not RED, and has been at this status for as long as I’ve been visiting the site, so just remain calm.  ~ BP
