Biden Declares ‘National Emergency’
Ahead of Freedom Convoy Heading Towards
Washington D.C.

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 2/21/2022 2:56:07 AM

Joe Biden is extending the declaration of a Covid “national emergency” ahead of an expected People’s Convoy heading towards Washington D.C. The move echoes beleaguered Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s invocation of the Emergencies Act to carry out a police crackdown on Freedom Convoy protesters under the color of martial law.Biden has just issued the declaration in an executive letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: Dear Madam Speaker: (Dear Madam President:) Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, within 90 days prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes

As long as crooked politicians are able to declare national emergencies, there will always be one. Now we can see why the founders said only congress can declare war. They knew if one man could do it, war would never be over. Kind of like things are now.

Why did Biden advise Trudeau to use the power of government to crush the truckers? It all is becoming clear. The globalists are getting impatient and are fearful that they are losing control. People all over the world are waking up to oppressive governments breathing down their necks. The pandemic is for all intents and purposes ending and that weapon will no longer be effective. People are resisting and rebelling at their draconian mandates and the elites cannot allow that to get out of hand. Therefore, they are going to up the ante. They are going to use peaceful protests to set up a scenario that they can exploit just as they did on January 6, 2021. They will send in their thugs to infiltrate the truckers protest. A spark of violence will be created and that will be used to bring down the full force of the government against the protesters. I am sure the media are salivating in anticipation of reporting whatever scenario the government creates. This, I realize, sounds like crazy talk. However, at this point and in this totalitarian political climate with Americans turning against this administration, I truly believe there is nothing they would not do to hold on to power. They believe they hold all the cards. They have control of law enforcement and the military something they have never had before. The media will enthusiastically deliver whatever narrative they want. It’s hard to believe but I think Joe is going to go full Trudeau. The only wildcard is that while Trudeau faces Canadians, Joe is going to face ticked off Americans. Biden is playing a very dangerous game.

I agree with this Conservative Treehouse assessment: "Russia has absolutely no plan to invade Ukraine and doesn’t even have a role in this theatrical production from the White House. The way the game is played; and believe me, everything about this is a game; they must take the manufactured crisis to the brink of thermonuclear war, so that Joe Biden can save the world and be seen as this legendary diplomat." Putin has no plans of invading Ukraine. It's being cooked up because the White House is dreaming of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Joe Biden and the Democrats are frightened. Scared into pissing themselves over losing their power over the people. If they were smart they would listen to what is going on in this country. This isn't just truckers, they are only the ones being seen. There are millions of Americans who stand behind them.

Putin began this "invasion" plan from the moment Biden cancelled construction of our own oil pipeline. Putin wants to sell the USA more oil. He has ginned up this conflict to negotiate a sale of more oil if he does not invade. Putin the evil genius, is rubbing his hands together...everything is going according to plan.

Yup. . . truckers driving across country, which hasn't even started yet, is a national emergency. But Gov. DeSantis asking for federal aid via a declared state emergency to help Floridians after major storm and tornado damage is denied by the same "uniter" of a president. Shameful and horrifying at the same time.

#7 hit the bullseye. Just think how bad this is: the truckers and their supporters have been overwhelmingly peaceful (or we would have heard otherwise by the drive-by media). But yet the little Canadian tyrant wants to go after the bank accounts of the truckers and anyone who supports them. Do you think the democrats won't see the brilliance of that and try it here? Nothing surprises me anymore. So, ti t for tat, honest DAs and law enforcement should finally go after the "protestors" who burned and destroyed our cities. This is long overdue.

What's happening in Canada should be a flashing red beacon to American truckers. A convoy could enable the use of emergency powers by the government and provide ample opportunities for false flag operations by the "justice system". Are they considering less risky options such as a general strike?

The truckers could refuse to re-supple any government entity until the mandates are dropped. And where possible, don't sell to or resupply anyone who works for the government.

This story is frightening especially the photo of the disabled lady run over by the police horse. She's in the hospital with injuries for just attending a protest. This is the world without God, without conscience, without morals. We've been praying for police for some time, so how could the police be part of this hideous attack on peaceful protesters? The police are supposed to be our protectors. To protect and to serve. God will judge them for taking part in this violence on the innocence. This reminds us of what the Brown Shirts of the 1930s did to innocent citizens like these protestors. We know Trudeau is evil, but for the police to join forces with evil, is unthinkable. God help us! God save Canada and the U.S.!

#6, the FBI and Capitol Police are already murderers and have framed hundreds for non-existent crimes on Jan 6. Sorry, our police, at least in DC, are probably worse than the Canadian police. Up there, rumors are that the violent ones were imported UN troops. I don't know if that is true, but if so, this is a VERY bad move. Just like foreign UN troops are happy to harm "foreign Americans", that cuts both ways. IIRC, in the events after 1776, the Hessian mercenaries were treated much more harshly than British soldiers.

When the truckers roll Americans across the country need to be in the streets and honking to show their support. Unless people push back I fear Canada was just a "milk run" for what's in store for us. Two years, and instead of backing off it looks like they are just starting to gear up. Who knows if a "national emergency" will preempt our coming elections. I do not believe anything is off the table.

It's troubling to see so many people equate the Capitol Police with non-blue state/local/county law enforcement outside of the blue-run jurisdictions. For those folks who believe all police are inherently bad, I expect to see a precipitous drop in 911 calls for service, as many walk the walk in their stated belief that police are out to kill us. Interestingly, that drop in 911 calls hasn't been seen in the black communities where the protests over police brutality have been the most strident and violent.

A former oil tycoon who spent ten years in prison after falling foul of Vladimir Putin said the Russian president 'has gone mad' after ordering the invasion of Ukraine.Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who was once believed to be the wealthiest man in Russia, spoke out last night as Ukrainian troops battled to repel an attack by Putin's forces.The former magnate was arrested by the Russian authorities in 2003 and charged with fraud, money laundering and embezzlement. He was released in 2013 and fled to London, where he now leads a foundation, the Dossier Center, dedicated to exposing criminal activity by Kremlin insiders.

Hillary Clinton is an exhausting one-trick pony, blaming her nemesis, The Orange Man, for the woes of the world and never letting pesky facts or history or the shame of blatant hypocrisy deter her.It’s getting old. It’s getting ridiculous. And thanks to MSNBC, it’s getting all the air time Hillary so desperately craves.In an appearance on “Morning Joe,” Obama’s former secretary of state has predictably claimed that former President Donald Trump along with some members of the rascally Republican Party are responsible for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bold aggression against Ukraine, because, after all, they have given “aid and comfort” to the enemy.

Joe Biden isn’t in the habit of keeping campaign promises: he has divided the country, failed to shut down the virus and wrecked our economy.Unfortunately, he is following through on his promise to nominate an activist judge to the Supreme Court. Ketanji Jackson Brown is beloved by far-left special interest groups and has a dangerously out-of-touch legal record. Brown would be a disastrous Supreme Court justice with no interest in protecting our constitutional rights and liberties. Biden has selected a rubber-stamp in his quest to radically remake the America we know and love.

If there's one person who shouldn't pontificate about dealing with Putin and Russia, it's Hillary Clinton. As Obama's Secretary of State, Hillary staged that pathetic, supposed, "reset" of relations with Putin's Russia, capped by laughingly pushing her [mistranslated] reset button with Putin's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.Subsequently during Obama's tenure, Putin invaded and annexed the Crimea region of Ukraine, as Obama meekly responded with some feckless sanctions. So much for your reset, Hillary.

Elon Musk likes to look up — all the way to Mars, his ultimate goal.But his younger, cowboy-hat wearing brother, Kimbal, 49, has his feet firmly on the ground as a chef and food-oriented entrepreneur involved in green initiatives that teach gardening and farming to kids and adults. He also threw himself a punk-rock party for his 35th birthday. Now the eccentric Musk brothers — who, by most accounts, have been close since their rocky childhood in South Africa and who started out in business together in 1994 after they moved to California — have one uncomfortable thing in common

The Secret Service is telling Republican investigators that it cannot find communications related to Hunter Biden’s travels for 2010, 2011, or 2013 — when President Joe Biden was the vice president. Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent the Secret Service a letter last month seeking unredacted records tied to Hunter Biden’s travels between January 2009 and January 2017. They asked for full travel records and criticized the agency for years of “inappropriate redactions” — especially related to a controversial Kazakhstan trip in 2014. The senators also lamented that three years of documents seemed to be missing entirely.

In an ideal world, maybe we could ignore what's happening in Ukraine but we have to see the world as it is, not how we want it to be: Russia is calling and wants its Ukraine back. I generally appreciate Tucker Carlson, but every time he discusses Ukraine and Russia, I bristle — especially when he contends that America has no interest in Ukraine. I know some of you might agree with Carlson, but you can be a solid conservative who is just as war-weary as the next guy and still see a security interest in Ukraine without being a neocon.

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin took to Twitter Friday to mock Pope Francis' attempt to halt the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.

In an unprecedented gesture, Francis visited the Russian embassy in Rome earlier on Friday to express his concern over the war.
