  1. There are many indications that events in Ukraine are not what they seem. It is said Soros has had a huge influence there. Our esteemed leaders, Trudeau and Freeland, are all in. In fact the full weight of the West is in perfect harmony on the matter.

    I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. The method used by astronomers to know when there is an enormous, but invisible, black hole millions of light-years away is by observing how light bends around the object. So great is its gravitational pull that this is inevitable.

    …and they believe they are on a mission from God to ‘Derussify Ukraine in Holy War’
    Other video filmed at checkpoints around Mariupol showed Azov fighters shooting and killing civilians attempting to flee. On March 1, Zelensky replaced the regional administrator of Odessa with Maksym Marchenko, a former commander of the extreme right Aidar Battalion, which has been accused of an array of war crimes in the Donbass region.

    • If only 10% of this is true it’s enough. Gangsters for hire with Davos Crowd help. It has not been lost on many what an excellent cover the Jew-ish Zelensky would provide.

  3. Islamic State names new leader, confirming US raid killed predecessor
    Audio message names Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi as new leader in first admission of former head’s death
    Islamic State has named a new leader after confirming that its previous head was killed by the US in north-western Syria over a month ago.
    In an audio message released on Thursday, an IS spokesman, Abu Omar al-Muhajer, confirmed the death of the group’s leader, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, as well as that of its former spokesman, Abu Hamza al-Qurayshi, in the US raid.
    Muhajer said IS had named a successor, identifying him as Abu Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi and saying the late IS chief had chosen him.
    “He has accepted the leadership,” Muhajer said of the new chief, without providing his real name.
    There was no immediate information about the new leader and it wasn’t known whether he was Iraqi like his two predecessors, both killed in rebel-held parts of Syria.
    None of the Qurayshis are believed to be related. “Al-Qurayshi” comes from Quraish, the name of the tribe that Islam’s Prophet Muhammad belonged to, and which serves as part of an IS leader’s nom de guerre.
    Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi was killed during an overnight raid by US special forces on 3 February.
    US officials said he blew himself up along with members of his family as American forces raided his hideout in the north-western Syrian town of Atme, near the Turkish border.
    About 50 US special operations forces landed in helicopters and attacked the house in the rebel-held corner of Syria, clashing for two hours with gunmen. In all, 13 people were killed, including six children and four women.
    In a televised address, the US president, Joe Biden, said “this horrible terrorist leader” was accused of the genocide of the Yazidis in northern Iraq and last month’s spectacular assault on a prison holding IS inmates in the east of Syria.
    Qurayshi, an Iraqi born in the northern town of Tel Afar, was a veteran of the post-Saddam Hussein Sunni-led insurgency.
    He is the fourth senior Isis leader to have been tracked down, captured or killed in Idlib province in the past two years. Qurayshi’s predecessor Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in October 2019 in a village nine miles (14.5km) south of Atme.
    The prevalence of the IS leadership in the area raises the likelihood that the heartland of the group – western Iraq – is no longer the centre of its operations, and that a new generation of leaders is opting for sanctuary on the battlefields of Syria.

  4. First this:

    Then this:

    This will give truckers another reason to strike. Dear Leader never anticipated our current inflation when he declared this idiotic raise. It will be devastating to an economy already devastated. Then again, maybe this is what Davos wants.

  5. Remember the Toronto 18, the terrorists from Somalia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Pakistan, Afghanistan. They planned to blowup the Toronto Stock Exchange, the Canadian Military Service on Front Street and a Canadian Military Base and cut off PM Stephen Harper’s head.

    They were caught, charged, sent to prison, stripped of the Canadian Citizenship. They stated they never felt Canadian.

    Justine Trudeau scrapped the law that allowed the government to revoke the citizenship of the convicted terrorists, who hold dual citizenship. He told the Canadian people “A Canadian is a Canadian and terrorists should keep their citizenship “.

    He never told us the terrorists are a small fringe group who hold unacceptable views.

    Now we are slowly being told through his paid media, bit by bit, little remarks about the bigger plan the truckers had.

    Plant the seed Justine, plant the seed and then keep trampling on it.

    The truckers, the proud boys, the guy on the street without his mask, the old woman in the park, sitting massless, they are all terrorists and next is he going to ask us if we have to tolerate them?

    The Canadian people are not sick, no matter how many crazy ass “healthcare” workers tell you you are. The PCR test, was perhaps a test of ones stupidity, nothing more. There are a lot of money hungry, liars in the system, they are the sick ones. Please do not allow them to walk away from their crimes, they have injured and murdered many through their total incompetent actions and pushing the experimental injections.

      • Georgie Soros’s “Civil Society” trained people in the Ukraine-a leaderless revolution – destabilize the Western World.

        John McCain received donations from Soros. Lindsey Graham was there in the Ukraine with McCain. Victoria Nuland told operatives in the Ukraine to “keep their hands off Soros people”.

        The Chalupa sisters, hung with Maxine Waters, I wonder if they said anything about being linked to Soros. They slummed with The DNC. Bad Trump.

        Perhaps we need start being “space cleaner-uppers”. It is amazing just how much one learns slumming with politicians.

  6. zero hedge – Italian Truckers Declare Force Majeure Over Gas Pains, Halt Deliveries Starting Monday

    […]Force Majeure Starting Monday Stops Trucking

    Via Google Translate from Ansa.

    Starting from next Monday, March 14, the trucking companies will suspend their services nationwide ‘due to force majeure’ “and that is the explosion of fuel costs.

    “The suspension of services has become inevitable – underlines a letter sent by Trasportiunito to the Prime Minister, the Minister and Deputy Minister of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility and the President of the Guarantee Commission in Strikes – also to protect companies and prevent that the exasperated market conditions, determined by the record rise in fuel prices, translate into advantages for other subjects in the transport sector, or into charges for contractual obligations that the companies in the logistics chain are no longer able to guarantee “.

    “The road transport block will have direct effects on the community, suspending the supplies of goods in the commercial sector and leading to a surge in retail price lists in shops and supermarkets – says the president Carlo Rienzi – An inevitable consequence, considering that the 85% of goods sold in Italy travel by road, and a further damage for consumers, exhausted like companies by expensive fuel”.

    “In this situation, a shameful immobility arrives from the Government, and it is not clear what awaits the executive to immediately cancel the VAT on petrol and diesel and reduce excise duties,

    The trucking industry calls on the government to suspend the Value Added Tax (VAT) on gas and diesel and remove excise duties.

  9. CBC – The war in Ukraine threatens to distract us from the climate crisis

    Climate action isn’t something governments can set aside when it’s inconvenient

    Russia’s invasion of Ukraine does not change the fact of climate change – a reality brought home again by another stark report from the UN’s climate change panel two weeks ago.

    But the ramifications of this war are being used to raise new questions about Canadian climate and energy policy.

    With gas prices surging a week after Vladimir Putin’s forces invaded Ukraine, Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown wrote to Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland to suggest that she delay the annual increase in the federal carbon tax, slated to take effect on April 1. “Now is the wrong time for any new burden,” he said.

    You could be forgiven for suspecting that Brown’s new interest in federal climate policy has something to do with the fact that he’s about to enter the Conservative Party’s leadership race. Whatever his motives, the merits of Brown’s proposed pause are dubious.

    While the higher carbon fee will add 2.2 cents per litre to the price of gas, carbon pricing’s critics tend to ignore the fact that nearly all of the revenue it collects is rebated back to households in provinces covered by the federal policy – and most households end up receiving more than they pay out.

    Because of fuel consumption patterns, only Ontario households in the top two income quintiles were expected to pay more than they received when projections were published by the Parliamentary Budget Officer in 2020.

    But Brown’s call for a pause (which has been echoed by federal Conservatives and conservative provincial governments in Alberta, New Brunswick and Ontario) also assumes that climate policy is something less than necessary — that reducing emissions is a priority only when it’s not inconvenient.

    A bad precedent

    Between now and 2050 — the target date for bringing the world’s greenhouse gas emissions down to net-zero — there will be many moments when leaders are tempted to deviate from the goal of reducing emissions and moving to a clean economy.

    However much policymakers need to account for the practical impacts of climate action, suspending a planned increase in the carbon tax now could set a troublesome precedent.

    Coupled with the attacks on the federal carbon tax are calls for a renewed push to export Canadian oil and gas.

    Europe relies on Russia for a significant amount of its energy. Those Russian exports help fund Putin’s regime and complicate European efforts to sanction Russia. If reducing that reliance is important, maybe Canadian oil and liquefied natural gas could help replace those Russian resources. Or so the thinking goes.

    “Alberta can be a stable supplier of Liquefied Natural Gas to the countries threatened by Putin’s dictatorship,” Alberta Premier Jason Kenney tweeted this week.

    Pipelines aren’t the answer

    A week earlier, the federal Conservatives put a motion before the House of Commons that called on the Liberal government to prioritize the construction of new pipelines to the East Coast to carry liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe.

    In proposing the motion, Conservative MP Michael Chong argued that LNG can be environmentally beneficial if it’s used to displace high-emissions coal. But building a pipeline is easier said than done — and even in an ideal scenario it doesn’t seem like a short-term solution.

    As Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault noted enthusiastically in a speech he delivered in Toronto on Wednesday, Europe is not simply aiming to replace Russian oil and gas with fossil fuels from less problematic countries. A plan proposed by the European Union this week relies on both diversifying energy sources and moving faster to increase energy efficiency and develop renewable and clean energy.

    With that in mind, Guilbeault proposed that Canada could be “uniquely positioned” to help Europe as a source of non-emitting technology, critical minerals and hydrogen.

    Asked about the immediate needs of Europe, Guilbeault said that Canada could increase its exports of crude oil by about 200,000 barrels per day, which could allow the United States to send an equivalent amount across the Atlantic.

    Looking further into the future, Guilbeault said that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion could be finished by the end of next year (although it is supposed to serve the Asian market) and LNG Canada’s project in British Columbia could be completed in two to three years.

    A day earlier, in an interview with CBC’s Power & Politics, Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson sounded slightly more bullish on the possibilities for Canadian oil and gas.

    ‘It’s not just about drilling holes’

    “I think there may be pathways for us to support our European colleagues that are consistent with fighting climate change. And that means you have to produce oil and natural gas in a very low emissions way,” he said.

    On that score, he pointed to regulations on methane emissions, work being done on carbon capture and sequestration and a cap on emissions from the oil and gas sector.

    “In fact, if you actually saw enhanced production from Canada that’s done in a low emissions way, that can fit within our overall targets for climate,” he said. “It actually would be better for the world economy or the global climate because Russia doesn’t do that …

    “But you’ve got to do it in the right way. It’s not just about drilling holes. It’s about actually how you manage the emissions in a thoughtful and constructive way.”

    Wilkinson suggested LNG could be part of the transition to hydrogen.

    It’s not clear whether he was talking about something more than the Trans Mountain expansion and LNG Canada — but Guilbeault just gave himself until mid-April to make a decision about the Bay du Nord oil project proposed for Newfoundland.

    By then, Guilbeault also will have had to present to Parliament a new climate plan explaining how Canada can reach its emissions reductions target for 2030.

    “Crises can be moments when we see clearly,” said Caroline Brouillette of the Climate Action Network, one of several organizations that has called on the federal government to reject Bay du Nord.

    “The federal government needs to be honest with Canadians that our economy’s reliance on a volatile commodity is making us vulnerable — both in the face of Putin’s use of gas as an economic weapon and in the face of the climate crisis.”

    At the very least, it’s up to the proponents of new oil and gas developments to demonstrate how they can be conducted responsibly. To pursue Bay du Nord or any other project in the “right way” presumably means showing how it fits within this country’s climate goals.

    The war in Ukraine is profoundly important. But the battle against climate change still has to be fought.
