1. While Liberals Punish Law-Abiding Gun Owners, They’re Simultaneously Reducing Penalties For Actual Gun Crimes

Could it be anymore obvious that the government is completely reversing the treatment of the innocent and the guilty?

At a certain point, it becomes painfully obvious that a government is driven solely by ideology, rather than facts.

And in the treatment of law-abiding Canadian gun owners, that is exactly what the Liberals are doing.

We have seen over and over again that the overwhelming majority of gun crime in Canada is perpetrated by criminals using illegal firearms.

By contrast, there is almost no crime committed by law-abiding gun owners, who are probably the safest people to be around in the entire country, since they can protect both themselves and those around them. […]

Here’s what Alberta Justice Minister Kaycee Madu said:

“While Ottawa’s new justice bill (Bill C-22) contains some reasonable measures, I am deeply concerned about the decision to gut tough sentencing provisions for gun crimes. 

“Ottawa’s draft law removes mandatory prison sentences for serious crimes such as illegal possession of a loaded handgun, robbery with a firearm, and possession of a firearm obtained through crime. 

“Removing tough, mandatory penalties for actual gun crimes undermines the very minority communities that are so often victimized by brazen gun violence. I also find it disingenuous for Ottawa to exploit a genuine issue like systemic racism to push through their soft-on-crime bills.

“For the federal government to gut sentences for real gun crimes just days after scapegoating duly-licensed, law-abiding firearms owners (Bill C-21) is especially rich.

“Once again, Ottawa appears to be going soft on the criminals who perpetuate real gun violence while symbolically targeting law-abiding Canadians.”

2. Trudeau in 2010. It looks an awful lot like he is going to run over this promise the same way he will over forced vaccines. He will make it happen, just call it something else. The Safe Shopping and Travel Bill or something classically socialist and Canadian like that.

3. China will not attack Taiwan unless of course, it thinks it will succeed. So it will. In other words.

4. Very worthy thread on the nature of the mRNA Gene Therapies and the Nuremberg code of ethical medical conduct.

 

5. . Major riots and fires in the street over arrest of a rapper in Spain

It appears that this guy is glorifying communist revolutionaries and possibly Islamic terror as well. A quick search and read gives articles that are vague and quite clearly are avoiding telling us what he is alleged to have said. But this CNN article manages to give enough metadata that we can safely guess he is ANTIFA and is glorifying Islamic terrorism and or communist terrorism.

[…] and that authorities “found 1,915 tweets in which appear the terms GRAPO, Monarchy, King, ETA, Terrorism, Bomb, Police and Civil Guard.”
GRAPO is the banned Marxist paramilitary group, The October First Anti-Fascist Resistance Group. ETA was the armed Basque group, listed as a terrorist group by Spain and the European Union, which killed more than 800 people in its long, unsuccessful fight for Basque independence.
On Monday, Hasel tweeted: “I stayed here without going into exile to contribute more to spreading the message, to the mobilization and above all to the organization. They have imprisoned me with my head held high for not having yielded to their terror, for having contributed my grain of sand to what I mentioned. We can all do it.”
If authorities only gave us all, including him, freedom of speech again, guys like this would have no influence and it wouldn’t matter what he says. More freedom of speech is the answer. Not jailing this guy. The reasons why are obvious as some of the more contentious parts of Spain appear to be on fire.

“I want to start with what we just saw,” MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle said at the outset of the Wednesday interview. “Contrast states like Florida and California. California [is] basically in a lockdown and their numbers aren’t that different from Florida.”

New numbers coming out of both states have suggested, to the surprise of many public health experts, that states with harsh lockdown policies have not been more successful at combating the virus than states that adopted more open approaches.

Slavitt, appearing confounded, responded, “Look, there’s so much of this virus that we think we understand, that we think we can predict, that’s just a little bit beyond our explanation.”

Then, without providing evidence, he claimed, “What we do know is that the more careful people are, the more they mask and social distance, and the quicker we vaccinate, the quicker it goes away and the less it spreads.”

“But, we have got to get better visibility into variants — we don’t know what role they play — umm, large events, etc.,” he continued.

(Florida’s proportion of elderly is also a lot higher. Which means that for the numbers to be the same, Florida should still have more deaths per 100,000. So this means that Florida likely has less deaths and this would likely be from herd immunity. If not, its because Lock downs cause more deaths in other ways.)

  1. 3 – China is in massive trouble, their economy is tanking because of the reduced buying in the west as well as the increased importing of food to take the place for the crops lost to the weather and insects.

    Then the ancient prophecies that give indicators of coming regime change, last summer we saw a lot of this indicators happen. The superstitious among the Chinese (meaning well over half of the Chinese population) are now expecting a new Dynasty to replace the Communist Party. Xi knows this and this combined with his enemies in the CCP looking for a way to depose him and possibly dispose of him he is getting desperate for something to save him and his regime. Conquering Taiwan won’t do that because the Taiwanese will probably destroy all of the chip manufacturing machinery rather then allow the Mainland to steal it. They are also suppose to be talking about/thinking about bombing the 3 Gorges Dam if they are invaded. Xi may be desperate enough to risk the destruction of the machinery and the dam, if there is a chance that he will succeed and save his neck while continuing to rule China.

    • I sincerely hope you are right!
      However, everything poor and medium income people buy is… made in china: even food is coming from there!
      We can’t afford to shop for organic crap or expensive fashion – tho’ mind you, all the top designers manufacture in China and Hong Kong.
      I would rather buy from India: anything made in Pakistan, Vietnam is also “Chinese”.

  2. I’m sorry but I couldn’t help scoffing at the Nuremberg Code.
    As the Eu/ 4th reich continues on its way, do you think it gives a damn for a stumbling block put in its way by decent people? The Eu (and u k) Nazis don’t give a rats butt for human rights, as seen with the mass importation of muzz rapists, torturers and murderers.
    Even where I live, a little seaside town in the south of England, war criminals thrive and continue to carry out their “cultural” attacks on the populace.
