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."
1 Week From "Hillary DID Spy on Trump" to "Nuclear War in Ukraine." What Headlines Did THEY Want Us to Forget???
You've heard the old adage, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 397,482 times, shame on me." But this time THEY have really outdone themselves. With one crisis (Covid) winding down, the desperately needed to create another crisis to exploit.
It only took, oh, about nine days max from the headlines shouting, "Hillary Really Did Spy on Trump in the White House," which even the MSM couldn't ignore, to warmongering cries of, "World War III" and "Russian Nukes on High Alert." And everyone promptly forgot exactly what they were supposed to forget. I swear the whole world has Attention Deficit Disorder. "Oh look, a Ukrainian squirrel."
Some war too! Patriots seem to be split on whether or not the Russian/Ukranian War, which Fake Biden seemed desperate to foment, is actually occurring as the MSM is telling us or not.
If it is a war, which the X22 Report and John B. Wells argue eloquently against, they just don't make wars like they used to. It seems there's plenty of time for embattled Ukrainians to post selfies to Instagram.
They have the leisure to Photoshop fancy labels for molotov cocktail bottles. And the Press has the time to search their image archives for heart-wrending war images from Syria and Israel, dating back to 2012, they recycle to prove there's a horrible conflict in Ukraine.
B-u-s-t-e-d! Patriots on Twitter and Telegram caught ya...over and over and over again. But more on that later. Much more.
Strange that this classic Deep State Game of Distraction coincided with my renewed interest in "magic" tricks where the hand we're supposed to be looking at is never the one performing the sleight of hand.
If we're supposed to be obsessed with Ukraine, then what are we not supposed to be seeing. Like the incredible card magician and AGT favorite, Shin Lim, the Deep State's left hand is fluttering madly, so what is their right hand doing? What headlines are getting lost in the shuffle? What headlines have we plumb forgotten because they wanted us to plumb forget?
If you thought there was a torrent of concurrent earth-shattering headlines in the past, it's nothing compared to the deluge we're seeing now! Pace yourselves, People of Earth, pace yourselves. There's plenty of time to screw up this cockeyed little planet even more than it's already screwed up. (Is that possible!?!)
Clinton spied, Trudeau revealed himself as a wannabe tyrant, convoys are exploding worldwide, Canadian provinces scrapping their jab mandates, beauty queens jumping to their deaths, Truth Social coming online, Q possibly reappearing, New Zealand's jab mandate struck down, Trump's SOTU at CPAC...the list goes on and on!
So let's slow down the footage and allow ourselves to actually see the sleight of hand the magicians don't want us to see. Let's dig up all the headlines they've tried to expunge from our memories by sheer overstimulation. Maybe, just maybe, we'll discover the Deep State is desperate from losing...bigly. And Q saw it all coming.
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.
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.
If it weren't for patriotic, freedom-loving citizen journalists livestreaming 24/7 from the streets of Ottawa, we wouldn't know diddly shit about the great joyfulness, kindness, generosity, peacefulness and complete lack of crime at Canada's Freedom Convoy.
Yesterday, one of these patriots, Rohan Kumar Pall, paid dearly for his love of freedom when he was fired in realtime during his livestream by his (now) ex-boss, Ryan Hardy, Co-Founder, President and CEO of GetIt.
It's a disgrace to snakes. Here's what happened. Once upon a time...
The lessons the valiant Canadian Truckers have taught the entire world this week can't be learned in any book nor classroom. Over and over I read tweets about tough men and strong women who've been brought to tears by the kindness, the generosity and the friendliness of thetruckers and those caring for them in Ottawa.
I'm ashamed to admit that as a kid I only ever heard three things about truckers, all of them negative.
Something about "repenting in sackcloth and ashes" is appropriate here because that was horribly wrong. The Canadian truckers have put all their detractors to shame. Contradicted all the derogatory clichés. They are determined to be impeccable. To heap hot coals of kindness on the heads of those who wish to accuse them, shame them, arrest them.
Here's what I've learned after just one week of following the Freedom Convoy and ten years of marriage to a former trucker!
#FreedomConvoy2022: Impeccable Truckers Misled by Police. Thousands of Trucks Hidden!
In a nutshell, the first truckers to arrive in Ottawa were charmed with an elaborate ruse by the City of Ottawa and Ottawa police and now their trucks languish on the outskirts of Ottawa, out of sight, out of the rally. While I definitively support the Thin Blue Line, who have even been bringing hot meals to the truckers, they make it very hard when a few behave so disgracefully.
