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!
