For weeks, I've been quietly stewing on the so-called Conservative Media's near total silence about The People's Convoy. It was an irritation that slowly increased from a simmer to a rolling boil and today I'm boiling over!
Why-oh-why won't the so-called Conservative Media cover The People's Convoy which most of us consider to be THE Freedom Event of the Century!?! They were generous enough with their coverage of the Canadian Freedom Convoy to Ottawa!
With the exception of a quick interview here or a brief article there, for over a month the Conservative Media has ignored The People's Convoy. Eric Bolling of Newsmax reportedly tried, but even his videos on YouTube are woefully out-of-date! After re-posting eight of my early Convoy articles, even the aggregator WhatFinger categorically stopped accepting my convoy articles after the Convoy's meeting with Senators Cruz and Johnson.
I expect the Convoy to be ignored by the Mainstream/Legacy Media but damn it! Shouldn't the Conservative Media be better than the MSM!?! They enthusiastically covered the Canadian Freedom Convoy, which had no power to change the USA, but when an American peaceful convoy that might actually inspire change with no drama, no arrests and multiple cordial meetings with politicians during eight weeks of successfully rolling "from sea to shining sea"...all you get are crickets!
The Heart-Warming Goodness Enveloping of the Peoples' Convoy: "Renaissance not Revolution"
As readers of AMERICA: The Blog may've noticed, I suffer from a terminal case of Pathological Optimism. Like fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg's mother who survived Auschwitz and yet only saw Good everywhere for the rest of her life, I survived an epic personal battle for Freedom, still with my Pathological Optimism intact. So if you arrived on my site looking to dig up dirt on the People's Convoy, Honey, you're in the wrong place cause there ain't any!
Remember how wonderful Ottawa was at the height of their Freedom Convoy? My friend, "D," who danced on the frozen streets of Ottawa every weekend during their Convoy, described it as a "Vortex of Love." Even via livestream, you could feel the joy, the love, the determination in every soul to be peaceful and impeccable. Everyone in Ottawa and watching livestreams from around the world were drunk on Liberté! Liberté! Liberté!
Well, my fellow Americans, our Canadian brothers and sisters have nothing on us! Just one week after setting up housekeeping at the Hagerstown Speedway, our Convoy has come together with a wonderful vibe proving we passionate Americans just as joyful, just as loving, just as patient, peaceful and impeccable as our True North kindred. Maybe there's a little less dancing in Hagerstown but hey! It's an older, more arthritic crowd...but I'm sure a bouncy castle is on the way. (Hint! Hint!)
This article is a compilation of just a few of the heart-warming, lump-in-throat inducing tales flowing out of Hagerstown. So fetch a box of tissues cause you're gonna need 'em.
Our story begins with a four-year-old boy, Robert, who donated his allowance, four quarters, to the truckers. Click the thumbnails below to read the whole story and if you don't have tears running down your cheeks then you're made of sterner stuff than I am!
The Tear-Jerking Story Behind the World War II Flag Flying Proudly on the People's Convoy Lead Truck
It's old. It's slightly yellowed. It's wrinkled. It only has forty-eight stars. But the World War II flag fluttering proudly from the lead convoy truck driven by Mike Landis has a story that will have even the toughest trucker "chopping onions in his cab."
It all began earlier this week when a Texan drove to Oklahoma to meet the convoy. He found Mike Landis and said, "I've got something for ya." Reaching behind the seat of his truck, he produced an American flag folded in the distinctive triangle we all know so well from military funerals.
That's when Mike started "chopping onions."
Whenever the creeping, advancing totalitarianism in our world is mentioned to my mother-in-law, she goes straight into denial. "That can't happen here," she says. "This is America!" She'd say the same if she were Canadian. But, apparently, it can because Trudeau the Grasshopper did it in Ottawa last weekend to the freedom-loving Ants, if you'll pardon the insect analogy.
Well, as Julia Roberts says in Pretty Woman, "Big mistake. Big. Huge!"
Far from quelling the Canadians' passion for freedom, Trudeau and his jackbooted RCMP and Gestapo police gratuitous violence have fanned this passion from a bright flame to a roaring inferno.
Big mistake, Trudeau. Big. Huge!
The Ants have realized their collective power and, buoyed by the approval of the entire world, they will continue because their consciences are clear, their cause is just and their anger is righteous. They've learned what their government is capable of and they've got nothing left to lose.
The Freedom Loving Canadians have already won and you have already lost, Trudeau. You just haven't realized it yet.
Here are a few thoughts after vicariously basking-via-livestream in a blissful 3-week festival of Freedom and Patriotism so rudely interrupted by Trudeau's Goons-For-Hire.
Every time you think you've seen everything during the three (previously) peaceful weeks of Canada's Freedom Convoy, something even more bizarre happens.
Today we witnessed the worst of Tyrant Trudeau and his Gestapo when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police plunged into the crowd with their steeds, trampling a woman to death [UPDATE 2-19-2022: She may not have died however I thought I saw a horse's hoof land on her torso.] as well as reportedly killing a man who livestreamer, Zoke, says perished after a horse trod on his head. (Not confirmed. Media silence.)
Meanwhile, the Lovers of Freedom continued to make Tamara Lich proud by remaining unarmed and peaceful. Righteously angry and jolly loud...but still peaceful.
In twelve hours of livestream watching, I never saw a fist raised nor a patriot touch a cop in any way. The patriots even admonished each other not to use the "F" word at the police.
At the other end of the emotional spectrum after the RCMP committed murder were the musicians who whipped out guitar, banjo and fiddle for a rousing if rather tone-deaf rendition of, "Rock me mama like a wagon wheel, Rock me mama any way you feel, Hey, hey, mama rock me" as a cops slowly closed in and semi after semi was towed away.
If Trudeau had only validated that the government's power is derived from the consent of the governed and met with the organizers, Tamara would've insisted the trucks leave under their own steam and expense and Ottawa be left spotless. Instead, Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer are footing a whopping great tow bill and the Legacy Media will undoubtedly claim the convoy trashed Ottawa when actually it was trashed when they arrived and cleaned it up!
But perhaps the only funny moment in a very unfunny day was when Rohan of the WarCampaign livestream faced the police and wailed in his fake-ass Indian accent, "Plllllease don't tase me, brrrrrro. I'm holding the line and my pee. I'm caught in a mosh pit forrrrrr frrrrrredom."
Sovereign Canadian Truckers or Maritime Strawmen??? The Unspoken Legal Disconnect Between the Freedom Convoy's Natural Law and the Canadian Government's Maritime Law
What's the most challenging part of a marriage? Communication. My husband and I both speak English but in our ten years of marriage I've come to realize we use and define the same English words vastly differently.
That is exactly the disconnect the Free people and truckers of Canada are having in the uneasy marriage betwixt them and their government.
You think you're all using the same English or French languages in the same way. You aren't.
You think you and your government define the same words in the same way. You don't.
You think you, the Ottawa Police and RCMP all share and understand the same legal code. You don't.
Most heartbreaking of all, you think the Natural Law that God has written on all of our hearts,including the RCMP's hearts, is codified in the Laws of Canada. Because the common language and the legal language use the same words but define them differently, it isn't.
And it gets even worse.
Therein is the silent, frustrating disconnect between the Freedom Convoy and the "Authorities" that everyone feels but no one can quite put their finger on.
It's like one of those weird marital arguments where you suddenly realize that for the last half hour you and your spouse weren't arguing about the same thing at all, even though you were using the same words! Arrrgh!
The Freedom Convoy and those who seek to suppress them are engaged in a similar argument, seeming to argue about the same things (right to assemble, freedom, etc.) but actually you're engaged two different arguments, slipping obliquely past each other, even while using the same words.
This whole linguistic/legal problem was "discovered" by Wisconsinite, David Wynn Miller, under the saddest circumstances: the government ripped his children from him during his 1980s divorce, just as the government ripped my husband's three children from him when his cheating ex kicked him to the curb, making good on her longtime "jest" that, "I just need five kids, then I don't need you anymore."
Unable to fathom how a government could take his own flesh and blood from him, David Wynn Miller began his research. What he discovered made him such a liability to the Establishment and so annoying to the Canadian courts that he was banned from crossing into Canada in 2001 but what he discovered explains exactly why the Freedom Convoy is being illegally threatened, arrested and prosecuted for "crimes" they did not commit, harassed for embodying "we stand on guard for thee," while the police commit the crimes and violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
It's been a heartbreaking pleasure to "meet" (via livestreams) the many Freedom Convoy truck drivers who fled Eastern Europe seeking Freedom in Canada. The Hell of not having Freedom in Europe ignites in them a love and passion to restore Freedom in Canada that someone who's always enjoyed Liberty can't quite fathom.
Maybe that's why the Freedom Convoys have hit me so hard. From the moment I heard Canada had "a great big convoy, truckin' through the night," I was obsessed.
The first two weeks, I hardly slept, I barely ate, sitting motionless at this computer seeking out and posting any and all news from Ottawa, while my legs slowly swelled. Oops.
The convoys stirred a disturbing, yet eerily familiar emotion I couldn't quite place. A vicarious mixture of excitement and fear, dread and vulnerability, passion and joy.
Then I remembered: Watching Canadian Patriots insist on 100% of their God-given Freedoms, despite all the "science" and shaming, all the condescension and infantilization, triggered the same emotional Hell I experienced in 2013 when I finally wrestled all my God-given Freedom from people who had held me against my will, doling out just enough Freedom so I could earn and pay rent money to them...with a trifle more "Freedom" allowed to keep me "happy" and quiet a la Stockholm Syndrome
To the Heroes of Coutts Border Crossing: You Actually Succeeded Beyond Your Wildest Dreams and Command our Utmost Respect
We Americans like to think we lit the fuse of Freedom with our Revolutionary War and reignited the flame with the 2016 MAGA movement but it dimmed slightly after the stolen election of 2020 and false flag of January 6th.
That's when you Canadians fanned the Torch of Freedom from a shimmering coal to a roaring conflagration that ignited the souls of Patriots from "sea to shining sea" then leapt oceansto ignite every continent for Freedom.
Oh, I know the heroes of the Coutts/Milk River Convoy are devastated today. Some are posting on social media that they feel, quite wrongly, they've failed.
Dear Brothers and Sisters of the True North, you couldn't be more wrong!
Just as on J6 in Washington D. C., you were false flagged and, instead of compromising your devotion to peace in this age of asymmetrical/social media warfare, you made the wise choice of a tactical retreat thus retaining the high ground of peace.
You chose to protect the Freedom Convoy's impeccable reputation for utter peacefulness in Canada by keeping it untarnished, an incredible example of Christlike repaying evil with good and turning the other cheek. You didn't just sing your national anthem, you honored it by living every word of it.
For that, you have America's, nay the entire world's, highest admiration. We quick-to-anger Wild Wild West Americans would do well to take your example of absolute peacefulness and unreasonable kindness to heart.
You have not failed! On the contrary, you succeeded beyond your wildest imagination. Merely because the protest at the exact geographical location of Coutts Crossing/Milk River didn't go exactly to your plans, how dare you hang your heads in shame!
When the livestream of yesterday's Freedom Convoy in Ottawa began with the view of two Canadians basking in an inflatable hot tub, giving an interview to the media through billows of steam, that's when I knew it was gonna be a good day in Ottawa and indeed it was!
But if stripping off to your knickers in 34°F with a flag-stiffening gale in front of 2.3 million partying Canadians isn't your thang, they also had two wood-fired saunas quietly steaming at Coventry. Nothing like all the comforts of home during a #FreedomConvoy!
All this just to return to the normalcy of 2019. The mind reels!
The Wild Hope of Freedom: Iconic Photos, Memes and Lessons from the Canadian Freedom Convoy
If Evil is fighting the Canadian Freedom Convoy this hard...the Convoy must be doing God's Work. In just two short weeks, they've written the playbook for impeccable and peaceful Freedom Convoys worldwide and filled the hearts of patriots everywhere with a Wild Hope of Freedom.
A hope of not only of Freedom but also of Justice and Governments that actually govern with and by the Consent of the Governed. Governments that actually...brace yourselves..follow the Law. The Law of God, the Natural Law He's written on our hearts, not this man-made Maritime-on-Dry-Land strawman bullshit law they've used to rob us of our children, our property, our money and our Liberty.
Government serve at our pleasure and the people of Canada are very displeased.
You know you've been oppressed and discouraged when a Wild Hope like this brings tears to your eyes. Innumerable people have said that, since the Convoy began, they can't stop crying. (Ol' Waterworks here is one of 'em. Sniff, sniff.)
Yes, it's a Wild Hope but one that, for the first time in our lives, seems within reach. You see this Wild Hope glowing in the eyes of these Canadian truckers captured through the loving lens of Dan Aponte.
Police Harrassing Ottawans AT HOME Merely for Supporting Freedom Convoy on Facebook
Canada- The world stands in awe of you. In total peace, you have thwarted the Powers of Evil cleverly, serenely and best of all, humorously.
The Evil of yesteryear demanded all Jews wear yellow stars so, according to a thoroughly debunked story (of course!), everyone in Denmark wore yellow stars. Whether it actually happened or not, it inspired the Resistance to Tyrants you demonstrate so adorably today.
My Canadian friend spent last weekend in Ottawa with the Freedom Convoy. Here is her on-the-spot report. Thank you, Friend to the North, for sharing this beautiful account of Freedom in Action.
We’re back! It was such an amazing time - seeing and being with all those peaceful loving Canadians Patriots was like a bath of Divine Love.
I see you are quite on top of everything...good job!
The MSM continue, along with leaders of political parties, to depict this protest as an insurrection to overthrow the government, an occupation. People who watch the MSM don't get the truth and the real picture.
It was pure love on the ground, people coming in hordes to donate all kinds of stuff: food, clothing, hand warmer packs, boxes of pizza and anyone could help themselves and nobody was greedy. Nobody took advantage of the crowd to try and sell something (the infamous t-shirt sellers), no garbage on the street as the truckers have big garbage bags every 25 feet. People picking up shovels to clear the snow, a bunch of hockey sticks and nets for anyone who wants to play. [Lenora's Note: The Convoy Organizers brought 100 shovels and the truckers have been clearing the streets and sidewalks, and sprinkling salt, as the City of Ottawa refuse to do their job despite being paid by taxes.)
Heck, even a couple of bouncy castles for the little ones.
🤣 Quote from Convoy Presser
"I don't know how
you can have the words
'bouncy castle' and 'insurrection'
in the same sentence."
