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."
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.
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.
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!
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.
