GoFundMe freezes more than 4 million d-llars raised for Canadian truckers protesting vax mandates| 25 Jan 2022 | Fundraising website GoFundMe has frozen access to over 4 million raised for the trucker convoy headed to Ottawa in protest of Canada’s vaccine mandates. The fundraising platform is still accepting donations to the campaign, but it is unclear at this stage when the group will have access to the money. “Funds will be safely held until the organizer is able to provide the documentation to our team about how funds will be properly distributed,” Rachel Hollis, a spokeswoman for the crowd-funding platform, said in an email. According to Canadian media, as of Tuesday morning over 55,000 people had donated over 4.2 million dollars to the campaign, which seeks to put an end to the dictatorial COVID-19 mandates that have been imposed on Canadians nationwide. Of particular concern was the implementation of Justin Trudeau’s federal vaccine mandate for truckers that barred “unvaccinated” truckers from making cross border deliveries.

Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., told Fox & Friends. Leaked video shows migrants being transported on secret charter flights under the cover of night from southern border states to Westchester, New York. “The government is betraying the American people,” a federal contractor told a Westchester County police officer in a conversation recorded on the officer’s body camera on the tarmac of a Westchester airport on Aug. 13, 2021.

  1. Quebec, a testing ground for the rest of Canada and the U.S?….If that’s tried here, it’ll be getting close to enacting the 2nd amendment in it’s full purpose and intent in my opinion..

    • The proverbial ‘Catch 22’. Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t.

      The game being played here is serious, irreconcilable, and existential. Not only will there be winners and losers, the difference between winning and losing, for all sides, has become a matter of definitive self-defense. When one side wins, it survives, while the other side ceases to exist.

      Why must the game be existential, you ask – a matter of life and death?

      Because it takes but one side to reject compromise, to insist on the elimination of the other side, in its totality. And when just one side determines to fight to the death, the only choice left to the other side is to submit and be eliminated, or to fight – even when, to them, compromise is a reasonable outcome.

      On one side we have Collectivists. On the other, the Individualist.

      For the Collectivists there can be no compromise. If only one Individualist survives (let alone thrives), the basis for the Collective is threatened. For if just one Individualist can survive, so can others.

      The Individualist, on the other hand, and by definition, can make a gracious allowance not permitted by the Collectivists… to live, and let live. That a Collective exists is no threat to the autonomy of the Individualist – unless, of course, the Collectivists declare the Individualist an enemy of the Collective, to be destroyed at all costs, because the Individualist has committed the mortal sin of rejecting the Collectivist’s order.

      The absurdity of the Collectivist’s dogma is exemplified by the precept that one cannot even choose to be a Collectivist in the first place. We are what we are. Or, rather, we are what the Collectivists say we are… because, merely expressing a ‘choice’ is the epitome of committing the original mortal sin.

      Game on. Second Amendment? If it comes to that, so be it.

  2. I see it in a more simplified light…Get in the way of my ability to sustain my life will put yours in jeopardy.

  3. I think the article about Wisconsin from Gateway pundit included an honest mistake. The unanimous vote was on a different bill, but was interpreted as the assembly voting yes to take back those electoral college votes. Someone correct me if I’m wrong about that.

  4. Pure Insanity….policies like this will KILL and economy and its citizens. Who will ever do business at any establishment that really does not serve the public? The implosion begins!
