Please do your own research. The information I share is only a catalyst to expanding ones confined consciousness. I have NO desire for anyone to blindly believe or agree with what I share. Seek the truth for yourself and put your own puzzle together that has been presented to you. I'm not here to teach, preach or lead, but rather assist in awakening the consciousness of the collective from its temporary dormancy.
How can you tell if you are an old soul? Are there differences in traits or behaviors? What signs can I look for that can help me differentiate the difference?
Generally speaking, we are all old souls, but some of us have been here longer than others.
The word “old” is only relative to time. Because time is linear and our souls are eternal, 10,000 years would be the blink of an eye.
Dolores Cannon believes that we need to incarnate many, many times to learn all of the lessons we came here for.
16 Ways To Tell If You Are An Old Soul
1. You Understand Many Of Life’s Deeper Lessons.
For some people, it is hard to fathom that the soul of a child may be much older than the soul of his or her parents. For these particular people, this is a sign that their soul might be younger than yours. When you begin to understand why you keep incarnating to this 3rd dimensional reality, it becomes similar to the movie, Groundhog Day, where Phil wakes up each day to find out that it’s still February 2nd until he learns how to remove his ego and starts doing kind deeds for others.
Once you realize that time, space, energy and matter are 3rd dimensional products, the theory of time becomes irrelevant, thus the theory of how old your soul is also becomes irrelevant.
But for the sake of understanding how old your soul may be, we’ll continue!
2. You Are In Touch With Your Natural Abilities Or Have An Extreme Interest In These Abilities.
Some people are born with innate gifts, such as special healing abilities or psychic abilities. The truth is that we all possess these abilities, but an older soul is more in tune with how to access and implement these abilities in the name of humanity. If you don’t have any particular ability, but have a strong interest in them, this is simply your soul trying to recall these abilities that you may have had in a previous lifetime.
3. You Become Spiritually Aware.
Everyone is pure consciousness, but many people have a difficult time understanding what this means. Your soul is pure consciousness and love. It has a unique understanding of how the matrix is being played on this planet and understands that everything we do as a collective will help to facilitate the awakening of others.
4. You Understand The Importance Of Forgiveness.
Some people are old souls who still have much to learn because they are trapped inside the box with their ideologies, they are stubborn, or they have not learned the importance of forgiveness. By forgiving yourself and others, we can release any karma between these people.
5. You’re Able To Transcend Ego.
It’s nearly impossible for anyone to completely transcend ego 100% of the time but simply being aware of our ego and how it plays against unity consciousness is a definite sign of an old soul. On the other side, there is no ego. During your life review, you will re-live your ego and will see how it affected others, as well as yourself. At this point in “time”, you will probably make a soul contract with the hopes of overcoming ego and atoning for whatever ego issues you had in your previous incarnation.
6. You’re Able To Transcend Materialism.
Money and materialism are products of this 3rd dimensional reality and it’s easy to succumb to materialism, especially when it’s in your face through advertising, programming and peer pressure. An older soul realizes that money is non-existent on the other side and it generally takes away from who we truly are as spiritual beings.
Those who are older souls will generally use money as a tool to either help facilitate their spiritual progression through spiritual retreats or by possibly creating a lavish feng shui home decorated with spiritual meaning versus the most luxurious furnishings. They may also use their money to help others who are less fortunate.
7. You Are Able To Understand The Concept That Your Body Is A Shell For Your Soul.
Before you were born, you not only chose your parents, you also chose your life situations and challenges that would help to facilitate your spiritual growth while atoning for any previous karma. The body that you are currently in is simply a vessel for your soul.
Your name is what your soul currently refers itself as, but in previous lifetimes, you had many different names and you have lived many previous lives as either a male or a female. Your name and title are both associated with ego because ultimately, you are infinite consciousness and we are all on the same team.
8. You Seem To Have A Special Connection To Eras Long Before You Were Born.
Did you ever watch an old movie or see some artwork from a specific era in time and have a connection to that era? Chances are, you lived a previous life during that time period and this is your cellular memory letting you know!
9. You Have An Understanding Of What You Need To Do To Complete Your Spiritual Progression.
Just by making it this far, you are more awakened than most people on this planet. You have an understanding of Universal laws and what is left to do on your soul contract. Even if you are not specifically sure of either, your higher self and spirit guides will continue to lead you in the right direction.
10. You Have A Strong Feeling That Home Isn’t Earth.
Did you ever look at a random area of the sky and stare at an unknown star for no particular reason? Do you have a special connection with specific star systems such as the Pleiades or Orion’s Belt? Do wars and corruption make you feel uneasy, as if they didn’t exist where you originally came from? Are you one of the souls who volunteered to come here at this specific point in time to help with the Earth’s ascension? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then chances are, Earth is not your home planet.
11. You Tend To Be A Loner.
The stigma on the word loner is often condescending, but those who are old souls are merely looking for other fragments of themselves and will often distance themselves from younger souls who need more incarnations into a 3rd dimensional planet. Older souls will seek out other like-minded people because there’s a comfort and familiarity with these types of people who will help to facilitate each others spiritual progression.
12. You Have A Rebellious Nature.
Whether you rebel from religion, laws or anything else, this is a sign that your soul knows the only true laws… the Laws of the Universe. While you respect the reasoning and intention behind laws and religion, you might not be compelled to use these as absolute laws when you know there are a set of higher laws that are intended to facilitate our spiritual progressions.
13. You Have A Burning Desire To Attain Truth And Inner Wisdom.
Many older souls can easily see through the lies we’ve been taught through religion, politics and through our educational facilities. While they realize they are all one with the universe, they also want the truth exposed to help other people’s awakening process. They also continue to seek knowledge in the spiritual, metaphysical and esoteric fields and will absorb this information much easier than anything they were taught in school.
14. You Are Not Controlling Of Others.
Older souls are more accepting, not just of other people, but of circumstances as well. For example, while you don’t approve of the corruption within politics, you understand how the corruption will help to awaken other people to the truth. You respect the free will of others and are more likely to use tact than verbal demands of others. You tend to be more of a team player than anything else.
15. You Sense A Separation Between Yourself And The “Real World”.
As you transcend ego and materialism, you find yourself living a different lifestyle. While this lifestyle is unique to your current incarnation, there also seems to be a familiarity of the direction you’re heading.
16. You Are Curious Whether You’re An Old Soul Or Not.
Many young souls wouldn’t ask this question or much less be concerned about it. While many older souls aren’t concerned either, for different reasons, they simply “know” they’re old souls, but it’s nice to have affirmations that coincide with your spiritual progression.
There are many lessons we have learned throughout our lifetimes, all of which has culminated into this particular incarnation. All of your previous life incarnations are embedded into your cellular memory and can be recalled through past life regressions.
Most of the people on this planet are old souls, yet many remain unawakened and still have a lot more to learn and will need several more incarnations to a 3rd dimensional planet.
Many of those who are awakened will probably move on to their next level of spiritual progression. It’s important to remember that this is not a race because in the end, we all win. Enjoy every millisecond in this incarnation because this may be the last time you’ll ever experience a 3rd dimensional reality!
As “Leader of the Free World”, the United States has waged numerous wars against sovereign countries since the end of World War II resulting in millions of deaths. The atrocities and crimes committed are on record.
The corporate media has upheld ALL these military interventions (without exception) starting with the Korean war in 1950 as “peace-making operations” intent upon spreading democracy Worldwide.
At this juncture in our history, namely the Ukraine Crisis, it is important that a peace process be initiated with a view to preventing escalation. What is happening in Ukraine has serious geopolitical implications and could potentially lead to a World War III scenario.
In the context of the Ukraine crisis, Canada is unconditionally supporting the United States without reflecting on an unspoken chapter in the history of our country.
Most Canadians are unaware of the fact that the United States of America had formulated in 1924 a carefully designed plan to invade Canada and bomb Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax and Vancouver.
What has been deliberately omitted from our history books is that our American neighbour had envisaged a detailed plan to invade Canada. The use of “poison gas” was part of that project.
War Plan Red was officially approved by the US War Department in May 1930.
The 1928 draft stated that “it should be made quite clear to Canada that in a war she would suffer grievously”.
And guess who was in charge of planning the bombing raids against Canadian cities:
General Douglas MacArthur who during World War II was put in charge of waging the Pacific War and coordinating the extensive bombing of Japanese cities (1941-1945).
The war plan was explicitly geared towards the conquest of Canada.
“The U.S. Army’s mission, [written in capital letters], was “ULTIMATELY, TO GAIN COMPLETE CONTROL OF CRIMSON [Canada].”
Canada’s Global and Mail has twisted realities upside down. The Red War Plan to Attack CRIMSON was casually presented as a peacemaking endeavor. It was a plan to rightfully defend the US:
First approved in 1930, Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan – Redwas drawn up to defend the United States in the event of war with Britain.
It was one of a series of such contingency plans produced in the late 1920s. Canada, identified as Crimson, would be invaded to prevent the Britons from using it as a staging ground to attack the United States. (Globe and Mail, December 31, 2005, emphasis added)
The war plan directed against Canada initially formulated in 1924 was entitled “Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan — Red”. It was approved by the US War Department under the presidency of Herbert Hoover in 1930. It was updated in 1934 and 1935 during the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was withdrawn in 1939 (but not abolished) following the outbreak of the Second World War.
“Though ostensibly for war against Britain Plan RED is almost devoid of plans to fight the British. The Plan is focused on the conquest of Canada, which was color- coded CRIMSON. The U.S. Army’s mission, written in capital letters, was “ULTIMATELY, TO GAIN COMPLETE CONTROL OF CRIMSON.” The 1924 draft declared that U.S. “intentions are to hold in perpetuity all CRIMSON and RED territory gained… The Dominion government [of Canada] will be abolished.”
The strategic bombing of Halifax, Montreal and Quebec City were envisaged under Plan RED. Moreover, the US Army had been instructed (in capital letters),
“TO MAKE ALL NECESSARY PREPARATIONS FOR THE USE OF CHEMICAL WARFARE FROM THE OUTBREAK OF WAR. THE USE OF CHEMICAL WARFARE, INCLUDING THE USE OF TOXIC AGENTS, FROM THE INCEPTION OF HOSTILITIES, IS AUTHORIZED…” (quoted by Floyd Rudmin, op cit).
In a bitter irony, General Douglas MacArthur who led US forces in The Pacific during World War II, not to mention the conduct of the carpet bombing raids against North Korea (1950-1953) was actively involved in the planning of war directed against Canada.
“In March 1935, General Douglas MacArthur proposed an amendment making Vancouver a priority [bombing] target comparable to Halifax and Montreal” (Ibid)
Today, Canada’s sovereignty as a Nation State is threatened by the Justin Trudeau government which is firmly aligned with Joe Biden’s military agenda, acting as a de facto US proxy.

America’s Plan to Invade and Annex Canada
June 30th, 2013
Canada Day July 1st is an opportunity for Canadians to reflect on issues of national sovereignty.
Territorial control over Canada has been part of Washington’s geopolitical and military agenda since the 1860s, following the end of the American civil war.
In 1867, Canada became a nation, a federation, under the British North America Act, largely in response to the threat of annexation by the United States as formulated in a bill adopted by the US Congress in 1866:
“A Bill for the admission of the States of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Canada East, and Canada West, and for the organization of the Territories of Selkirk, Saskatchewan, and Columbia. (Annexation Bill)” (see map below)
Fast Forward: The plan to annex Canada to the USA is still on the books?
In April 2002, upon the creation of US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM), Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld put forth the concept of “Binational integration” of military command structures, alongside a major revamping in the areas of immigration, law enforcement and intelligence.
Rumsfeld also stated without consulting Ottawa, that the areas of territorial jurisdiction of USNORTHCOM on land and sea would extend into the Northwest territories and the Canadian Arctic.
Moreover, territorial integration under the proposed North American Union and Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) (launched in 2005) would embody Canada (as well as Mexico) into the US Homeland Security apparatus. Broadly speaking, Washington would set the agenda for “integration” and would exert an overriding influence in developing the legal, political, economic, military and national security architecture of the proposed NAU.
What is at stake is de facto annexation, where Canada would cease to function as a sovereign nation, relegated to the status of a US protectorate.
The Conservative government in Ottawa has not only embraced the SPP, it is also actively supporting the US war agenda, its national security agenda and its “Global War on Terrorism”.
In the last few years “Securing the North American Security Perimeter” has been viewed by Washington as a means to “bringing Canada into Fortress America”.
Historical Background: US Bill to Annex Canada (1866)
Most Canadians are unaware that a Bill to Annex Canada into the US was introduced and adopted by the US Congress in 1866 prior to the 1867 Alaska Purchase from Russia. The Complete text of the 1866 Bill is contained in Annex to this article.
The text of the bill is tantamount to an invasion plan. It was to come into force upon its proclamation by US president Andrew Johnson (left). It included the territories of British North America from Newfoundland and the Maritimes to British Columbia, extending North into the Hudson Bay territory and North West Territory bordering onto “Russian America”. (i.e Alaska) (See map below)
It consisted in the outright confiscation of public lands. It also implied US control over the trans Canada railway system, waterways, canals as well as control over the Saint Lawrence seaway.
The US government had also contemplated paying “compensation” to the Hudson Bay Company. This consisted essentially in a plan to confiscate the territories under H.B.C jurisdiction (see map), “in full discharge of all claims to territory or jurisdiction in North America, whether founded on the charter of the [Hudson Bay] company or any treaty, law, or usage.”
The United States will pay ten millions of dollars to the Hudson Bay Company in full discharge of all claims to territory or jurisdiction in North America, whether founded on the charter of the company or any treaty, law, or usage. (Article XI)
The territorial division of British North America is outlined in the bill. The various constituent “Canadian states” would conform to US laws in setting up their legislature.
While the 1866 Annexation project was stalled upon the adoption of the British North American Act in 1867, US plans to annex and/or invade Canada militarily were contemplated in the 1930s.
In the late 1920s, Washington formulated a detailed plan to invade Canada, entitled “Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan — Red”. The plan was approved by the US War Department under the presidency of Herbert Hoover (right) in 1930. It was updated in 1934 and 1935 during the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was withdrawn in 1939 following the outbreak of the Second World War.
Secretary of War Patrick J. Hurley (left below) was largely instrumental in the formulation and approval of Plan Red by the US administration.
The plan to invade Canada consisted of a 94-page document “with the word SECRET stamped on the cover. It had been formulated over a period of over five years (See full text in Annex).
In February 1935, the [US] War Department arranged a Congressional appropriation of $57 million dollars to build three border air bases for the purposes of pre-emptive surprise attacks on Canadian air fields. The base in the Great Lakes region was to be camouflaged as a civilian airport and was to “be capable of dominating the industrial heart of Canada, the Ontario Peninsula” (from p. 61 of the February 11-13, 1935, hearings of the Committee on Military Affairs, House of Representatives, on Air Defense Bases (H.R. 6621 and H.R. 4130). This testimony was to have been secret but was published by mistake. See the New York Times, May 1, 1935, p. 1.
In August 1935, the US held its largest peacetime military manoeuvres in history, with 36,000 troops converging at the Canadian border south of Ottawa, and another 15,000 held in reserve in Pennsylvania. The war game scenario was a US motorized invasion of Canada, with the defending forces initially repulsing the invading Blue forces, but eventually to lose “outnumbered and outgunned” when Blue reinforcements arrive. This according to the Army’s pamphlet “Souvenir of of the First Army Maneuvers: The Greatest Peace Time Event in US History” (p.2). ( Professor F.W. Rudmin, Queen’s University Kingston, Ontario, Comments on “War Plan Red”, see complete text in Annex III)
One of the updates to the 1930 invasion plan was the use of chemical weapons against civilians:
“In 1934, War Plan Red was amended to authorize the immediate first use of poison gas against Canadians and to use strategic bombing to destroy Halifax if it could not be captured.” (Ibid)
It is worth noting that in the course of World War II, a decision was taken by the War Department to retain the invasion plan on the books. War Plan Red was declassified in 1974.
The Washington Post, which casually dismissed the historical significance of “Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan — Red”, nonetheless acknowledged the aggressive nature of the proposed military endeavor:
“A bold plan, a bodacious plan, a step-by-step plan to invade, seize and annex our neighbor to the north. …First, we send a joint Army-Navy overseas force to capture the port city of Halifax, cutting the Canadians off from their British allies.
Then we seize Canadian power plants near Niagara Falls, so they freeze in the dark.
Then the U.S. Army invades on three fronts — marching from Vermont to take Montreal and Quebec, charging out of North Dakota to grab the railroad center at Winnipeg, and storming out of the Midwest to capture the strategic nickel mines of Ontario.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy seizes the Great Lakes and blockades Canada’s Atlantic and Pacific ports. … “(Raiding the Icebox; Behind Its Warm Front, the United States Made Cold Calculations to Subdue Canada, by Peter Carlson, Washington Post, 30 December 2005, emphasis added).
The complete text of War Plan Red is contained in Annex III. The complete text of the Annexation Plan is contained in Annex I.
The plan is detailed. It involves both military as well an intelligence components.
According to historian John Major “War, Plan Red” also consisted in “a series of possible pre-emptive American campaigns to invade Canada in several areas and occupy key ports and railways before British troops could provide reinforcement to the Canadians…”
Canada’s National Defense
The Canadian federal government and military were fully aware of these “Secret” US plans to invade Canada. In the 1920s, Lieutenant James “Buster” Sutherland Brown had been appointed Director of Military Operations and Intelligence in Ottawa to address the issue of Canada’s national security. His tasks consisted in developing contingency war plans in the case of a US attack against the Dominion of Canada. Under the helm of “Buster” Sutherland Brown (subsequently promoted to Brigadier), Canada’s response to US threats was formulated under “Defence Scheme No. 1”, a counterattack contingency plan, in the case of a US invasion.
“Defense Scheme No. 1” was abandoned in 1931 by Canada’s chief of the general staff, A.G.L. McNaughton (following the adoption of “War Plan Red” in 1930) , on the grounds that “the Americans would inevitably win such a war” and there was no use in acting upon a contingency plan.
Ottawa had caved in. The watershed decision by the Conservative government of Prime Minister R. B. Bennett which came to office in August 1930 to abandon a Canada national defense plan constituted a de facto recognition of US hegemony in North America. While the invasion of Canada under Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan — Red was never carried out, the military threat of an invasion plan served to oblige Canada to ultimately surrender to US political and economic pressures.
Let us remember on Canada Day, July 1st, 2020 that the greatest threat to Canadian national sovereignty emanates from US plans of “deep integration”, which have been supported by both the Harper and Trudeau governments.

TRANSCRIPT OF US BILL TO ANNEX CANADA INTO THE US (1866)
A Bill for the admission of the States of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Canada East, and Canada West, and for the organization of the Territories of Selkirk, Saskatchewan, and Columbia. (Annexation Bill)
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the President of the United States is hereby authorized and directed, whenever notice shall be deposited in the Department of State that the governments of Great Britain and the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Canada, British Columbia, and Vancouver’s Island have accepted the proposition hereinafter made by the United States, to publish by proclamation that, from the date thereof, the States of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Canada East, and Canada West, and the Territories of Selkirk, Saskatchewan, and Columbia, with limits and rights as by the act defined, are constituted and admitted as States and Territories of the United States of America.

If Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick shall decline the proposition, but Canada, British Columbia, and Vancouver island shall, with the consent of Great Britain, accept the same, the construction of a railway from Truro to Riviere du Loup, with all stipulations relating to the maritime provinces, will form no part of the proposed plan of union, but the same will be consummated in all other respects. If Canada shall decline the proposition, then the stipulations in regard to the Saint Lawrence canals and a railway from Ottawa to Sault Ste. Marie, with the Canadian clause of debt and revenue indemnity, will be relinquished. If the plan of union shall only be accepted in regard to the northwestern territory and the Pacific provinces, the United States will aid the construction, on the terms named, of a railway from the western extremity of Lake Superior, in the State of Minnesota, by way of Pembina, Fort Garry, and the valley of the Saskatchewan, to the Pacific coast, north of latitude forty-nine degrees, besides securing all the rights and privileges of an American territory to the proposed Territories of Selkirk, Saskatchewan, and Columbia.
DETAILS OF “WAR PLAN RED” (1930)
The plan is detailed (See annex III). It involves both military as well an intelligence components:
Nova Scotia and New Brunswick:
Occupying Halifax, following a poison gas first strike, would deny the British a major naval base and cut links between Britain and Canada.
The plan considers several land and sea options for the attack and concludes that a landing at St. Margarets Bay, a then undeveloped bay near Halifax, would be superior to a direct assault via the longer overland route.
Failing to take Halifax, the U.S. could occupy New Brunswick by land to cut Nova Scotia off from the rest of Canada at the key railway junction at Moncton.
Quebec and the valley of the Saint Lawrence River:
Occupying Montreal and Quebec City would cut the remainder of Canada off from the Eastern seaboard, preventing the movement of soldiers and resources in both directions.
The routes from northern New York to Montreal and from Vermont to Quebec are both found satisfactory for an offensive, with Quebec being the more critical target.
Ontario and the Great Lakes area:
Occupying this region gains control of Toronto and most of Canada’s industry, while also preventing Britain and Canada from using it for air or land attacks against the U.S. industrial heartland in the Midwest.
The plan proposes simultaneous offensives from Buffalo across the Niagara River, from Detroit into Ontario, and from Sault Ste. Marie into Sudbury. Controlling the Great Lakes for U.S. transport is considered logistically necessary for a continued invasion.
Winnipeg is a central nexus of the Canadian rail system for connecting the country.
The plan sees no major obstacles to an offensive from Grand Forks, North Dakota, to Winnipeg.
Vancouver and Victoria:
Although Vancouver’s distance from Europe reduces its importance, occupying it would deny Britain a naval base and cut Canada off from the Pacific Ocean.
Vancouver could be easily attacked overland from Bellingham, Washington, and Vancouver Island could be attacked by sea from Port Angeles, Washington.
The British Columbia port Prince Rupert has a rail connection to the rest of Canada, but a naval blockade is viewed as easy if Vancouver were taken. (Wikipedia)
The following is a full-text reproduction of the 1935 plan for a US invasion of Canada prepared at the US Army War College, G-2 intelligence division, and submitted on December 18, 1935. This is the most recent declassified invasion plan available from the US archival sources. Centered pagination is that of the original document. The spelling and punctuation of the original document are reproduced as in the original document, even when in error by present-day norms.
This document was first identified by Richard Preston in his 1977 book, “The Defence of the Undefended Border: Planning for War in North America 1867-1939” (Montreal: McGill-Queen’s University Press.) Preston’s reference citation (p. 277) identified this to be archived at the US Military History Collection, Carlisle Barracks, Pa., coded AWC 2-1936-8, G2, no. 19A. It was located by the US National Archives and supplied on microfilm.
The military planning context of this document is War Plan Red, which was approved in May 1930 by the Secretary of War and the Secretary of Navy. War Plan Red and supporting documents are available from the US National Archives on microfilm, in the Records of the Joint Board, 1903-1947, Roll 10, J.B. 325, Serial 435 through Serial 641. In War Plan Red, the US Army’s theatre of operations is defined to be: “All CRIMSON territory” (p.80), and the US Army’s mission, in bold type: ULTIMATELY, TO GAIN COMPLETE CONTROL OF CRIMSON (p. 84). CRIMSON is the colour code for Canada. In 1934, War Plan Red was amended to authorize the immediate first use of poison gas against Canadians and to use strategic bombing to destroy Halifax if it could not be captured.
In February 1935, the War Department arranged a Congressional appropriation of $57 million dollars to build three border air bases for the purposes of pre-emptive surprise attacks on Canadian air fields. The base in the Great Lakes region was to be camouflaged as a civilian airport and was to “be capable of dominating the industrial heart of Canada, the Ontario Peninsula” from p. 61 of the February 11-13, 1935, hearings of the Committee on Military Affairs, House of Representatives, on Air Defense Bases (H.R. 6621 and H.R. 4130). This testimony was to have been secret but was published by mistake. See the New York Times, May 1, 1935, p. 1.
In August 1935, the US held its largest peacetime military manoeuvres in history, with 36,000 troops converging at the Canadian border south of Ottawa, and another 15,000 held in reserve in Pennsylvania. The war game scenario was a US motorized invasion of Canada, with the defending forces initially repulsing the invading Blue forces, but eventually to lose “outnumbered and outgunned” when Blue reinforcements arrive. This according to the Army’s pamphlet “Souvenir of of the First Army Maneuvers: The Greatest Peace Time Event in US History” (p.2).
The following document is a declassified public domain document and may be freely reproduced. This should be of particular interest to people in the Halifax and Quebec City regions, then considered to be the most strategic cities in Canada.

II. The Study Presented. ___________________ Determine under the geographical factor, the critical areas in Crimson (Canada) and the best approaches thereto for Blue. A critical area is assumed to be any area of such strategic importance to either belligerent that control thereof may have a material bearing on the out- come of the war.
III. Facts bearing on the study. __________________________ 1. General Considerations: An area in Crimson territory may be of strategic importance from the viewpoint of tactical, economic, or political considerations. In the final analysis, however, critical areas must be largely determined in the light of Red’s probable line of action and Crimson’s contribution to that effort. 2. Geographical Features of Canada. a. Location and extent. The location and extent of the Dominion of _ Canada is shown on the Map herewith (see Exhibit A). It comprises the entire northern half of the the North American continent, excepting only Alaska and the coast of Labrador, a dependency of the colony of New- foundland. The principal political subdivisions are those located along the border of the United States. These from east to west are: (1) The Maritime Provinces: Prince Edward Island. Nova Scotia. New Brunswick. (2) Quebec. (3) Ontario. (4) The Prairie Provinces: Manitoba. Saskatchewan. Alberta.
(5) British Columbia. Newfoundland, while not a part of the Dominion of Canada, would undoubtedly collaborate in any Crimson effort. b. Topography. (Slide 14852) _ The great area in eastern Canada underlain by rocks of Precambrian age is known as the Canadian Shield. Its northern boundary crosses the Arctic archipelago; the eastern boundary lies beyond Baffin Island and Labrador, and reaches the depressed area occupied by the St. Lawrence, a short spur crossing this valley east of Lake Ontario to join the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The southern boundary runs from this spur west to Georgian Bay thence along the north shore of Lake Huron and Lake Superior, thence northwest from the Lake of the Woods to the western end of Lake Athabaska. Its average elevation does not exceed 1500 feet. The greatest known elevations are in the eastern part of Baffin Island and along the coast of northern Labrador. Peaks of the Torngat Mountains of Labrador have elevations of between 4000 and 5000 feet.
The coast is one of the boldest and most rugged in the world, with many vertical cliffs rising 1000 to 2000 feet high. Occasional exceptions occur in which there are reliefs of several hundred feet, as in the hills along the north shore of Lake Huron and Lake Superior. The area is dotted with lakes, large and small, and of irregular outline. A lowland of considerable extent stretches for some distance into Ontario and Manitoba from Hudson Bay. Extending south and west form the Canadian Shield, between the Ap- palachian Mountains on the east and the Cordilleras on the west, lies the Great North American plain.
The northeastern portion of this plain called the St. Lawrence lowlands occupies southern Ontario, south of a line ex- tending from Georgian Bay to the east end of Lake Ontario; eastern Ontario lying between the Ottawa and St. Lawrence rivers, and that part of Quebec lying adjacent to the St. Lawrence between Montreal and Quebec. The plain west of the Canadian Shield, known as the Interior Plains, stretches northward to the Arctic Ocean between a line approximately join- ing Lake Winnipeg and Lake Athabasca, Great Slave Lake and Great Bear Lake on the east, and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains on the west.
That part of the St. Lawrence Lowlands lying in the eastern angle of Ontario, and in Quebec south of Montreal and extending down the St. Law- rence is comparatively flat and lies less than 500 feet above sea level. On the lower St. Lawrence it is greatly narrowed by the near approach of the Appalachian system to the Canadian Shield. The part lying adjacent to Lakes Ontario, Erie and Huron is of less even surface, has its greatest elevation of over 1700 feet south of Georgian Bay and slopes gently to the Great Lakes. The Interior Plains region is in general rolling country with broad undulations and a slope eastward and northward of a few feet per mile, descending from an elevation of 3000 to 5000 feet near the mountains on the west to less than 1000 feet at the eastern border. The rolling character of the area is relieved by several flat topped hills, by flat areas that formed the beds of extensive lakes, and by deep river valleys. The Appalachain and Arcadian regions occupy practically all that part of Canada lying east of the St. Lawrence, with the exception of the lowlands west of a line joining Quebec City and Lake Champlain. The Applachain region is a continuation into Quebec of three chains of the Applachain system of mountains. The most westerly of these ranges, the Green Mountains of Vermont, stretches northeast into the Gaspe peninsula, where it forms flat topped hills some 3000 feet high. The Acadian region, which includes
New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island is an alternation of upland with hills and ridges rising 2500 feet and higher. Adjacent to the Bay of Fundy is a series of ridges rising in places to 1200 feet. Between these two New Brunswick uplands, which converge toward the southwest is a lowland forming the whole eastern part of the province. This lowland ex- tends east to include Prince Edward Island, the western fringe of Cape Breton Island and the mainland of Nova Scotia north of the Cobequid moun- tains, which have an elevation of 800 to 1000 feet. South of the Cobequid Mountains lies a long narrow lowland stretching from Chedabucto Bay to Minas Basin, and along the Cornwallis Annapolis valley between North and South Mountains. South of this lowland is a highland sloping to the Atlantic Coast.
The northern part of Cape Breton Island is a tableland 1200 feet high with its central part rising to an elevation of over 1700 feet. The Cordelleran region, a mountainous area bordering the Pacific extends from the United States through Canada into Alaska and embraces nearly all of British Columbia and Yukon and the western edge of Alberta and the Northwest Territories. The eastern part of the Cordillera is occu- pied by the Rocky Mountains, with peaks rising to 10,000 feet and 12,000 feet. They extend northwest and fall away towards the Liard River. The western part of the Cordillera is occupied by the Coast Range and the mountains of Vancouver and Queen Charlotte Islands.
The Coast Range rises to heights of 7000 to 9000 feet. Between the Rocky Mountains and the Coast Range lies a vast plateau 3000 to 4000 feet high and cut by deep river valleys. 3. Population. According to the census of 1931, the total population on June 1, 1931 was 10,376,786, of whom 5,374,541 were males. The inhabited areas of the Dominion are essentially confined to a narrow strip alolo the United States boundary, generally south of the 56th parallel of latitude west of the Lake Winnipeg, and south of the 49th parallel of latitude east of Lake Superior. Approximately 10% of the total population are found in the Maritime provinces, 61% in Quebec and Ontario, 23% in the Prairie Provinces and 6% in British Columbia. Of the present population, 51.86% are of British descent, 28.22% French, and the remainder of widely scattered nativity. 4. Climate. The climate of southern Canada is comparable to that of the northern tier of the states of the United States. The west coast of British Columbia tempered by the Pacific Ocean is mild and humid. The prairie provinces generally experience extreme cold weather from November to March, with heavy snow fall. The climate of southern Ontario, the St. Lawrence Valley and the Maritime Provinces is much milder that that of the prairie provinces, but freezing temperatures are general between the end of November and the first of April, and the ground is usually covered with between one and three feet of snow. Any extensive military operations in Canada between November 1st and April 15th would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. 5. Communications. a. Railways. _ There are only two railway systems in Canada, both crossing Canada east and west from the Atlantic to the Pacific. These lines generally parallel the United States border, in some instances crossing through the United States.
(1) The Canadian national Railways system (See inclosure B) belonging to and operated by the government, has eastern terminals at Halifax, N.S., Portland, Maine (Grand Trunk), and through the Central Vermont, at Boston, New London and New York. Western terminals are Vancouver and Prince Rupert B.C. An extension from Cochrane, Ontario, to Moosonee, Ontario on James Bay, was completed by the Province of Ontario in July 1932, to connect with water routes to Churchill, Hudson Bay and with the northern route to Europe. (2) The Canadian Pacific system (see inclosure C) has its eastern terminus at Saint John, N.B. and it western terminus at Vancouver, B.C. As indicated by the systems maps, there are numerous branch lines serving the industrial and farming areas of the Dominion, and connecting lines ty- ing in with various railroads of the United States. From a military viewpoint, these railroads provide excellent trans- portation facilities for Blue, if invasion of Crimson is decided upon, and being located in close proximity to the border are, from the Crimson view- point, very liable to interruption. This is particularly true at Winnipeg some 60 miles north of Blues border, through which both transcontinental systems now pass. This fact probably encouraged Canada to construct the railroad from The Pass, Manitoba and develop the port at Churchill. Complete details concerning all railroads of Canada are contained in Appendix No. 1. b. Highways. _ In recent years Canada has greatly increased and improved her road con- struction and while there are enormous stretches of country, particularly in the northern portion of the Dominion, with few or no roads, the southern portion is well served with improved roads. A number of transcontinental motor roads are under construction or projected, the most important being the “Kings International Highway” from Montreal to Vancouver, via Ottawa, North Bay, Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie, Winnipeg, MacLeod, Crow’s Nest Pass, Fernia and Cranbrook. Another highway is being constructed from Calgary to Vancouver. The principal roads in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime Provinces are shown on Inclosure D, herewith. Roads in the Prairie Provinces and British Columbia are shown on inclosure E. The majority of improved roads are classified as gravel; macadam and concrete construction amounting to only 7870 miles out of a total of some 95,000 miles improved. Gravel roads will require extensive maintenance under heavy motor traffic, especially during the spring. c. Water Transportation. _ (1) Inland Waterways. The Great Lakes, with the St. Lawrence River, is the most im- portant fresh water transportation system in the world. At the present time it affords a draft of 21.0 feet over all the Great Lakes and through the Welland Canal into the St. Lawrence. From the Atlantic Ocean to Mon- treal, the present head of ocean navigation on the St. Lawrence, a draft of 30.0 feet is available, adequate for the great majority of ocean shipping. For some distance above Montreal the present channel has an available depth of only 14.0 feet. The inland waterway is of prime importance to the economic life of both the United States and Canada for the transportation of bulk com- modities, especially for the movement of wheat from the western plains to shipping centers on the eastern seaboard; of iron ore from the mines in Minnesota to foundaries along Lake Ontario; and for coal from the mines of Pennsylvania and West Virginia to Ontario, Quebec and the northwest.
The locks at Sault Ste. Marie, the boundary channels between Port Huron and Detroit and to a lesser degree the Welland Canal are the critical points on this waterway and effective control of such areas is vital to Blue. Navigation on the Great Lakes is generally closed by ice from about the end of November to the first of April. The St. Lawrence River is ordinarily ice bound for a similar period, but somewhat later about early in December to the latter part of April. While there are a number of Canadian lake ports of importance, Montreal is the only one which would not be automatically closed by Blue control of the Lakes. Montreal is also an important ocean port and will be considered along with other deep sea ports. (2) Ocean Shipping. The Dominion of Canada owns and operates a cargo and passenger carrying fleet consisting of some 57 cargo vessels and 11 passenger ships. The principal ocean ports and the magnitude of Canadian ocean traffic is indicated by the following tabulation:
A. Number and tonnage of sea-going vessels entered and cleared at the principal ports of Canada. (For year ending March 31, 1934.)
Churchill, Man. * 15 15 132,000 Three Rivers, Que 79 79 424,560 Windsor, N.S. 56 69 201,032
Note: The above figures do not indicate amount of commerce; Register tons ______ are gross tons. (Namely cubical contents in cubic feet divided by 100) less deductions for crews space, stores, etc.
A brief description of the above ports to indicate size, avail- able depths and important terminal facilities is included in Appendix No. 2. While the above tabulation lists the principal ports, it should be _________ realized that there are a large number of less desirable ports having available depths at low water of from 20 to 30 feet and provided with satis- factory terminal facilities, which can be used in an emergency for landing troops or supplies. Examples of this class of harbors are: Pictou, N.S. Sydney, N.S. Canso, N.S. Gaspe’, Quebec Sorel, Quebec
The port of Montreal, favorably located at the head of ocean naviga- tion on the St. Lawrence and the foot of inland navigation of the Great Lakes, is a natural shipping and railroad center. The port of Quebec is less favorable situated economically being more than 100 miles northeast of Montreal. Strategically, however, Quebec controls the commerce of Canada moving to or from the Atlantic seaboard. Its possession by Blue would interrupt eastern rail and water communication between England and the Mari- time Provinces and the rest of Canada. The port of Halifax is one of the best harbors on the Atlantic Coast and the principal winter port of Eastern Canada. The harbor has been ex- tensively developed by the Dominion government as a modern ocean terminal and naval base. It is fortified, though much of the armament is obsoles- cent. In case of war with Red, Halifax would become of prime importance to Red as a naval base and as a debarkation point for overseas expeditions in case Blue controlled the St. Lawrence. However, the routes available for a Red advance from Halifax into northeastern United States or towards Quebec and Montreal are quite difficult. The port of Saint John, New Brunswick is similar in many respects to the port of Halifax. It is open throughout the year and equipped with the most modern terminal facilities, including one of the largest drydocks in the world. It is an important shipping center for grain and dairy products. Due to the proximity of the port to the United States border and the fact that the principal rail connections (C.P. Ry.) passes through the state of Maine, the port would be of little use to Crimson or Red, at least in the early stages of war, provided Blue made any effort to control this area. The port of Vancouver, B.C. came into prominence with the opening of the Panama Canal, providing an alternate route to that of the transcontinental railroads for grain, dairy, lumber and the other products of western Canada to Europe. The port of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, is similarly situated, but due to the absence of rail connection with the mainland is more concerned with passenger and mail traffic than with bulk commodities. Esquimalt, two miles west of Victoria, and the only Canadian naval base on the west coast, is equipped with a large modern drydock, and affords good anchorage for the largest vessels. Consequently this area is of prime importance to Crimson. With the closing of the Panama Canal to Red traffic and the presence of Blue naval forces based on Honolulu, its commercial value is largely des- troyed. Assuming that Blue controls the St. Lawrence and cuts Crimson’s eastern communication with Red, the areas importance is enhanced, although it remains a decidedly unsatisfactory outlet. If Red should win control of the Pacific steamship lanes, the area becomes of first importance to Red. All factors considered, it must be controlled by Blue. The port of Prince Rupert is a first class harbor with modern terminal facilities and excellent and extensive anchorages. It becomes of extreme importance to Crimson, if and when they are denied the use of the southwest British Columbia ports, although, as in the case of Vancouver, it affords a most unsatisfactory and hazardous route to Europe. Physical occupation of Prince Rupert harbor by Blue is not vital, but closing the port to ocean traffic should be effected. The port of Churchill, Manitoba now offers a good harbor and limited but modern terminal facilities, affording a back door to the Prairie Provin- ces and, by way of Moosonee, Ontario, and the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railroad, with central and western Ontario. Hudson Bay and James Bay are open to navigation only about 4 months of the year, but this condition is partially offset by the fact that the distance from the Prairie Provinces
to Europe, via Churchill is from 500 to 1000 miles shorter than the rail- water route via Montreal. In case Red is denied the use of the Atlantic or Pacific ports, or both, Churchill will afford an outlet for grain and meat products from Ontario, Manitoba and Sasketchewan and an inlet for mili- tary supplies and troops from Europe unless the northern trade route through Hudson Strait is controlled by the Blue fleet, and this is improbable. d. Air Transportation (Civil). _ During 1933 there were 90 commercial aircraft operators in Canada. Their activities included forest file patrols, timber cruising, air photo- graphy, transportation of passengers, express and mail, etc. To encourage a more widespread interest and knowledge of aviation the Department of National Defense, since 1928, has issued two light air- planes and made certain grants to each of 23 flying clubs and a large air terminal has been built at St. Hubert, seven miles south of Montreal and a terminal airdrome at Rimouski, Quebec for the reception of trans-atlantic mails. At the close of 1934 there were 101 air fields of all types, 368 civil aircraft and 684 licensed pilots in Canada. Some details of airports in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are given in a letter from the Office of the Chief of Air Corps, herewith. (See inclosure F) e. Telephone and Telegraph. _ (1) Cables. Six transoceanic cables have termini in Canada, five on the Atlantic and one on the Pacific. The Atlantic cables are landed at Halifax, though several of them are routed through Newfoundland. The Pacific cable lands at Vancouver from whence a cable also leads to the United States. (2) Radio. A transoceanic commercial radio beam service is carried on by a station at Drummondville, Quebec, with Australia, Great Britain and the United States. In 1932 a direct radio telephone circuit with Great Britain was opened through the medium of this beam station. (3) General. Canada is well supplied with local telephone, telegraph and radio service. Interruption of Canada’s trans-oceanic telegraph and radio service will seriously handicap Red-Crimson cooperation. 6. Other Economic Factors. a. Agriculture. _ Agriculture, including stock raising and horticulture, is the chief single industry of the Canadian people. Canada is not only self-sustaining, as far as food is concerned, but has a large excess for export. Food pro- duction is varied and so distributed throughout the dominion that each section is practically self-sustaining and cutting her off from the outside would would mere serve to deny her people certain luxuries, such as coffee, tea, sugar, spices and tropical fruit. The Maritime Provinces are noted for their fruit and vegetable crop, particularly for the oat and potato crops of Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick and apples in Nova Scotia. Quebec and Ontario are mixed farming communities with the Niagara peninsula specializing in fruit. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta are the principal wheat producing centers, with other grains and stock raising of increasing importance. The rich valleys of British Columbia produce apples, other fruit and vegetables.
b. Forests. _ The principal forests are in the provinces of British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The manufacture of lumber, lath, shingles and other products such as paper pulp, is the second most important Canadian industry. c. Mineral Resources. _ Canada is one of the greatest mineral producing countries of the world. Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and the Yukon Ter- ritory contain the chief mining districts. The following summary notes pertinent facts concerning minerals of primary military importance. Aluminum. Aluminum was the 16th ranking Canadian export in 1934. Large quantities of bauxite, the principal source of supply were imported from the United States. Coal. There are enormous deposits of coal in Canada, largely in Nova Soctia and New Brunswick, in the east and in Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia in the west. Due mainly to the distance of the fields from the manufacturing and industrial centers, about 50% of the coal consumed is imported from the United States, via the Great Lakes. Statistics for the calendar year 1933 show: Produced: Nova Scotia 6,340,790 tons New Brunswick 314,681 ” Manitoba 3,036 ” Saskatchewan 903,776 ” Alberta 4,748,074 ” British Columbia 1,484,653 ” Yukon Territory 638 ” Imported: From United States 8,865,935 tons From United Kingdom 1,942,875 ” Total – – – – – – ……………………….22,265,235 tons. (see slide 14855) In case of war with the United States, Canadas coal imports from this country would be cut off and her railroads and industrial activities seriously handicapped. If Blue controlled the Quebec area and Winnipeg, Canada’s railroads and industries dependent upon “steam power” would be crippled. Copper. The world production of copper in 1933 was (in short tons): Canada 149,992 Mexico 43,900 Rhodesia 144,954 Peru 28,000 Belgian Congo 73,409 Spain and ) Chile 179,200 Portugal ) 34,720 Japan 75,459 United States 196,190 Canada’s production was distributed approximately as follows: Province Tons ________ ____ Quebec 35,000 Eastern Townships Ontario 72,700 Sudbury area Manitoba 19,000 Flin Flon Saskatchewan 1,600 British Columbia 21,600 Western Manitoba
Iron and Steel. Canada ranks seventh among the nations as a producer of iron and steel but only a small percentage of her production is derived from domestic ores, in view of the abundant supply of higher grade ores in Newfoundland and Minnesota. The Wabana section of Newfoundland contains the largest known single deposit of iron ore in the world. There are large iron ore deposits in Quebec, northern Ontario and British Columbia but for various reasons they are handicapped for blast furnace treatment. Iron and steel are produced in Nova Scotia (Sydney) and in Ontario. Iron ore is obtained from the Mesabi Range in Minnesota, via the Great Lakes and from Newfound- land. (See slide 14856) The bulk of iron and steel products, however, are imported, principally from the United States and the United Kingdom.
Lead. Lead is obtained in Canada largely from deposits in British Columbia, the largest porting being exported to England. Nickel. The world production of nickel in 1933 was about 50,736 tons, of which about 82% originated in the Sudbury district, north of Georgian Bay in Ontario. The remainder came chiefly from New Caledonia (Fr.). A new deposit of nickel was recently discovered in northern Saskatchewan but has not yet been worked. Nickel is necessary to industry and indispensable in war. Control of the Sudbury mines, in case of war, is therefor of vital importance. Petroleum. The production of crude oil or petroleum in Canada during 1934 amounted to 1,417,368 barrels, principally from the Turner Valley field in Alberta. A small amount is also obtained from wells near Monkton, New Brunswick and in southwest Ontario, between Lake Huron and Lake Erie. Considerable quantities are also imported from the United States. Zinc. Canada ranks fourth among the worlds producers of zinc. Her out- put in 1934 totaled 298,579,531 pounds.
The principal producing mines are located in the Kootenay district of British Columbia and near Flin-Flon in northwest Manitoba. Approximately 2/3 of the zinc exported goes to Great Britain. d. Manufacturing. _ (1) General. Canada is the second largest manufacturing country in the British Empire, with Ontario and Quebec the most important industrial centers. The relative standing of the various provinces during 1933, based on the value of products manufactured, was approximately as follows: Ontario $1,000,000,000. Quebec 650,000,000. British Columbia * 146,500,000. Manitoba 91,000,000. Alberta 55,000,000. Nova Scotia 53,000,000. New Brunswick 45,000,000. Saskatchewan 36,000,000. Prince Edward Island 3,000,000. *Includes Yukon Territory
The principal industries ranked according to gross value of products (1932) are: Pulp and Paper $123,415,492. Central Electrical Stations 117,532,081. Non-ferrous metal smelting 100,561,297. Slaughtering and meat packing 92,366,137. Flour and food mills 83,322,099. Butter and Cheese 80,395,887. Petroleum Products 70,268,265. Bread and other bakery product 51,244,162. Cotton yarn and cloth 51,197,628. Printing and publishing 50,811,968. Clothing factory, women’s 44,535,823. Automobiles. 42,885,643. Rubber goods. 41,511,556. Hosiery and knitted goods 40,997,210. Sawmills. 39,438,057. (2) Munitions. (a) Aircraft.
There are at present six firms manufacturing aircraft as follows: Canadian-Vickers……………Montreal, Que. De Haviland………………..Toronto, Ont. Curtis Reid………………..Cartierville, Que. Fairchild………………….Longueuil, Que. Boeing…………………….Vancouver, B.C. Ottawa Car Mfg. Co………….Ottawa, Que. Aero engine factories have been established by: Armstrong-Siddeley Motors Co. at Ottawa, Que. Aero Engines of Canada at Montreal, Que. Canadian Pratt-Whitney Aircraft Co. at Longueuil, Que. (b) Miscellaneous. During the World War Canada demonstrated her ability to divert her peace time industries to the production of munitions, when she manufactured and exported large quantities of shells, fuses, cartridge cases, explosives, gun forgings, machine guns and small arms ammunition.
This production could not be obtained in case of war with Blue but some munitions could be produced if her factories were free to operate and raw materials were available. The government arsenal at Lindsey, Ont., is equipped to produce small arms ammunition and the arsenal at Quebec manu- factures some small arms and artillery ammunition. e. Commerce. _ Analysis of Canada’s industry and resources indicate that she has a sufficiency or surplus of certain raw materials but a deficiency of others. The more important of these materials are as follows: (1) Sufficiency or surplus; Arsenic, asbestos, cadmium, cobalt, copper, feldspar, fish oil, fluospar, foodstuffs, furs, gold, graphite, gypsum, lead, leather, magnesium, mica, nickel, silver, talc, wood and zinc. (2) Deficiency; Aluminium, antimony, bauxite, barytes, camphor, chromite, coal, cotton, flax, hemp, iron, jute, kaolin, manganese, mercury, nitrates, phosphate, petroleum, opium, quinine, rubber, silk, sugar, sulphur, tea, tin, tobacco and wool.
The odious Globalist weasel who lords over conquered Canada was never exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer. Nonetheless, when it comes to cunning and politicking, Prime Minister Justine Trudeau(Castro Jr), much like Bill Clinton of America, of such “skills” has no lack. Though a Soros-Schwab leftist through and through, Trudeau, like Clinton, instinctively knows how to “moderate” back to the “center” the moment the concerned public starts to push back against the Marxist advance.
It therefore comes as quite a shock to observe Trudeau antagonizing his own countrymen to the extent that he is — going so far as to label the trucker-protesters and their growing legions of supporters as “racists and misogynists.” And now, this — from the article:
“Trudeau took the rare step of declaring a national public order emergency in a push to end protests that have paralyzed the center of the Canadian capital for more than two weeks and reverberated across the country. Mr. Trudeau and several of his cabinet ministers said the move would allow the government to take a variety of steps, including freezing bank accounts of protesters.”
Trudeau’s hard line is so hard that even the high & mighty Editorial Board of The New York Times (fearful of a Canadian backlash)felt compelled to distance itself from Trudeau’s heavy-handedness. What’s this shaggy-haired clown doing to Canada? Does he not see that this tyrannical decree has the potential for backfiring? — Or does he?
Check this out:
There has never been, and there will never be, a successful “spontaneous” uprising of “the people” which came to fruition solely as a result of the initiative and actions of “the people.”
“The people” — for the most part — will ever be an inert mass of normies waiting to be activated by some higher hand. All revolts — whether “good” or “bad” — must therefore be engineered and executed or, at the very least, be critically aided, abetted and financed by a second tier faction of the ruling class that has turned against the dominant faction.
The American Revolution was the secretive work of some of the richest and most talented men in the colonies; the Jacobin clubs of revolutionary France had the Illuminati behind them; the Bolsheviks were guided and funded by the limitless pockets of the Schiff-Warburg-Rothschild crime syndicate which simultaneously waged war on the Russian Monarchy from the outside; the various “Color Revolutions” and “Arab Spring” uprisings of the 2000’s were the handiwork of Soros and the CIA; and even Hitler’s ground-up revolution still required the money of the industrial class and the tacit blessing of both retired and active military leaders in order to succeed in the end.
This is not “conspiracy theory.” It’s just basic social dynamics — which leads to the question: Who is the power behind Canada’s “Trucker Revolution?”
We waited awhile before calling this one. But now that the trucker revolt shows no signs of abating any time soon — (actually, it is going global) — Trump and the international White Hat coalition have to be the only suspects behind this “spontaneous” anti-vax-mandate movement. The Globalists are getting a taste of their own medicine. In due time, we expect, hopefully, that the Trudeau regime (as well as others like it in Europe) will be toppled via cascading “Color Revolutions” similar to Eastern Europe’s Soros “Velvet Revolutions” of 1989.
As for Trudeau’s astonishingly antagonistic “blundering” here — a series of fuel-to-the-fire missteps so “foolish” that it seems as though he’s actually working for Trump — well, we believe that he is! Only that he, meaning Trudeau, is actually “Trudeau” — meaning, a Deep Fake imposter. (incoming hate mail in 3… 2… 1).
Like so many others (Biden, Maricon sorry “Macron”, Bojo, Hillary, Obongo, Pelosi, numerous celebrities et al) “Trudeau” doesn’t look the same, nor sound the same (accent sounds American, not Canadian). And then there was that eyebrow of his which literally started falling off, on camera, at the most recent G-7 conference!(image below)
Keep your eye on Canada, and expect these “spontaneous” trucker revolts to keep gaining and expanding internationally.
The Nobel Prize Winning” Fake Economist Paul Krugman is one of the most senior propagandists at the Manhattan Mendacity Machine and a ubiquitous TV gadfly. The odious little demon’s subtle condescending scorn and veiled hatred for White people — the American rural class in particular — have been well exposed in previous articles by “Moi”. But in this vile attack against the non-vaccinated, the sneaky sniveling specimen of Satanic scum leaves absolutely nothing to subtlety.
Krugman’s kikey kookiness is really “off the charts” this time. He is openly inciting the type of Trotskyite hatred which — if he had his way — would lead to internment and even mass murder of the modern incarnation of the “kulaks” (Russian private farmers). Let’s analyze what this “Pulitzer Prize” nominee has to say about us “selfish” non-normies.
Krugman: New York City remains America’s gateway to the world — a status that brings many good things, but also makes it a place where new variants of the corona-virus can spread fast. Analysis: The reason why New York was the “epicenter”of Stupid-19 and its never-ending spawn of Greek-lettered “variants” has got nothing to do with being a “gateway to the world.” It’s because New York is the Jewish media capital of the world. What happens in New York gets magnified and amplified — just like the 9/11 false flag did.
Krugman: The good news is that the city appears to have weathered the rapidly receding Omicron wave relatively well. Analysis: So, what’s all the fuss about then?
Krugman: It is a very different story from what happened during the initial wave in 2020, when New York was uniquely vulnerable because of its high population density and reliance on public transportation Analysis: Provincial New York libtards & normies have an exaggerated view of themselves and their “uniqueness.” In reality, “The Big Apple” doesn’t even register on the list of the world’s most densely populated urban areas. How is it that cities like Manila, Cairo, Bangalore et al had nowhere near the number of “Covid deaths” per capita as New York Shitty? Answer: The numbers were rigged for the media capital of the western world.
Krugman: This time, the city was able to cope much better, in part because a great majority of its residents are vaccinated, and they generally follow rules about wearing masks, showing proof of vaccination before dining indoors, and so on. Analysis: New Yorkers survived Omicron because they were obedient little commies.
Krugman: In other words, New Yorkers have been behaving fairly responsibly by U.S. standards. Unfortunately, U.S. standards are pretty bad. Analysis: Now comes the Satanic hatred.
Krugman: America has done a very poor job of dealing with Covid. Analysis: Americans were locked-down, socially-distanced, masked-up and, for the most part, vaccinated. And it’s still not enough for this nasty swine.
Krugman: We’ve had more deaths, as a percentage of the population, than any other large, wealthy nation. Analysis: Not exactly. What we’ve had was more fraudulent PCR “test” results and more rigged statistics than any other large, wealthy nation.
Krugman: Why? Because so many Americans haven’t behaved responsibly. And I know I’m not alone in feeling angry about this irresponsibility. Analysis: Putrid Paulie is “angry.” Be afraid! The bellowing Bolshevik is essentially calling we-the-disobedient MURDERERS.
Krugman: There are surely many Americans feeling a simmering rage against the minority that has placed the rest of us at risk and degraded the quality of our nation’s life. Analysis: A “simmering rage” against we-the-disobedient, eh? Feeling’s mutual, you malevolent Marxist motherfucker.
Krugman: Available surveys suggest that a majority of vaccinated Americans were frustrated or angry with the unvaccinated. Analysis: The only reason that the bewildered boobs of the overlapping tyrannical Kingdoms of Normiedom and Libtardia are “angry” at we-the-disobedient is because scum like Kikeman have incited them to hatred with 24/7 fear porn and disinformation.
Krugman: I wouldn’t be surprised if those numbers grew so that Americans fed up with their compatriots who won’t do the right thing are now a silent majority. Analysis: The Satanic spirit of Trotsky and the Cheka of Russia’s early Bolshevik days animates Kikeman’s keyboard.
Krugman: Oh, and don’t tell me that how you behave during a pandemic is just an individual choice. Analysis: If it’s not an “individual choice” — then it must be a collective mandate, which can only be enforced by hired thugs. Kill the kulaks!
Krugman: I don’t claim any special expertise in the science….. Analysis: “Yeah but” alert — Here comes the “but” in 3… 2…. 1…
Krugman: … but there seems to be clear evidence …. Analysis: The terms “seems to be” and “clear evidence” actually contradict each other. Just sayin’. Continue, asshole.
Krugman: ….that wearing masks in certain settings has helped limit the spread of the coronavirus. Rebuttal: Wrong again, Crockman. A viral molecule is to the fibers of a mask as a mosquito is to a chain link fence. It still gets through the “protection” — into your lying mouth and up your hooked nose, to say nothing of your beady little eyeballs, wax-filled ear canals, and snake-skin pores etc.
Krugman: I know that some people in red America … Analysis: There it is! The diminutive little rat bastard can’t resist. “America” —- those damned unwashed uncultured kulak rednecks of red-state “flyover country.” This is quintessentially cosmopolitan snobbery.
Krugman: Those who refuse to take basic Covid precautions are, at best, being selfish — at worst, they’re engaged in deliberate aggression . Analysis: Wow! Even by Krugman’s standards, this is shocking language. We-the-disobedient are now “aggressors.”
Krugman: The fact that some of the people around us are deliberately putting others at risk takes its own psychological toll. Analysis: According to this logic, we-the-disobedient could be sued for inflicting emotional distress on normies…. or perhaps even imprisoned.
Krugman: Tell me that it doesn’t bother you when the person sitting across the aisle or standing behind you in the checkout line ostentatiously goes maskless or keeps his or her mask pulled down. Analysis: It doesn’t bother me at all. What bothers me are the sanctimonious dumb-as-dirt normies who remain under your hypnotic spell.
Krugman: Many Americans are angry at the bad behavior that has helped keep this pandemic going. Analysis: Many Americans are also “angry” over having had their businesses destroyed and their lives disrupted — all for a HOAX perpetrated by the usual suspects. Satan help you, Crookman, if we-the-disobedient ones ever get the upper hand on you guys.
Krugman: This quiet rage of the responsible should be a political force to be reckoned with. Analysis: Dream on, Kikeman. The Communists of America will be wiped out this November. Let’s “hope and pray”that it will be a permanent purge this time. *
Insane criminals like Krugman really ought to be strung up from a lamppost. Sound harsh? He’d do it to us in a Jew York minute if he could. It’s him or us.
Most regular readers of this channel know by now that the Sulzberger-Ochs Crime Family has — ever since buying up the Gentile-owned New York Times on the cheap (post “Panic of 1893”) in 1896 — used its status and influence as “the paper of record” to promote the Globalist agenda. What is less known is the fact that, owing to the generally conservative and patriotic political / cultural realities of decades gone by, the propagandists had to tread carefully as (((they))) went about their dirty business. Today, the Times, if it should so choose, could probably sell the existence of flying Unicorns to their dumb-as-dirt “educated” worshipers. Back in the day, they could not. For that reason, one will find many instances of “the other side of the story” pertaining to this or that issue being presented fully and truthfully — albeit offset by the more numerous poison pills.
The “Times Machines Archives” — which your generous donations help to pay for (hint hint) have proven to be very useful to your favorite Real Historian here when it comes to the never-ending search for all important original-source data. It’s really interesting to note how — when read with a “third eye” and combined with other data — the Jewish-owned New York Times seemed to confirm the version of events presented in the banned and “controversial” book, The Bad War.
Let’s have a critical look at the day-by-day headlines leading up to that fateful and avoidable September 1, 1939 breakout of World War 2, and also those of the first days after the shooting started. Any historian who would dare to merely present this “other side of the story” today — even with obligatory and pathetic “anti-Nazi” qualifiers — would be booted out of Quackademia quicker than Professor Christina Jeffrey was dumped as Congressional historian in 1995 for having, 10 years prior, suggested precisely that in her assessment of a history curriculum she had been tasked with reviewing. It’s amazing.
These sorts of surprising (by today’s standards, that is) headlines and articles about “the other side of the story” would continue up to and even a few months after Japan’s justifiable non-surprise attack upon the Pearl Harbor naval base in the US territory of Hawaii in 1941. Entire communiques issued by the German, Italian and Japanese Foreign Ministries, as well as statements by Hitler himself, were published — albeit not as frequently nor as well-placed as the dirty lies of Churchill and FDR. It wasn’t until US troops started to physically engage the “Axis” nations that the Times could show its true colors and descend into pure “Yellow Journalism.” But prior to that, the “paper of record” dumped a load of truth gems for anyone with the time, sense of smell and patience to dig them out.
A heartfelt “thank you” to all of “you guys” who — especially in the wake of the Amazon / Kindle ban — have kept me in a position to keep doing just that.
More than thirty years have now passed since I in 1914 made my modest contribution as a volunteer in the first world war that was forced upon the Reich.
In these three decades I have been actuated solely by love and loyalty to my people in all my thoughts, acts, and life. They gave me the strength to make the most difficult decisions which have ever confronted mortal man. I have spent my time, my working strength, and my health in these three decades.
It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted the war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish descent or worked for Jewish interests.
I have made too many offers for the control and limitation of armaments, which posterity will not for all time be able to disregard for the responsibility for the outbreak of this war to be laid on me. I have further never wished that after the first fatal world war a second against England, or even against America, should break out. Centuries will pass away, but out of the ruins of our towns and monuments the hatred against those finally responsible whom we have to thank for everything, international Jewry and its helpers, will grow.
Three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish war I again proposed to the British ambassador in Berlin a solution to the German-Polish problem—similar to that in the case of the Saar district, under international control. This offer also cannot be denied. It was only rejected because the leading circles in English politics wanted the war, partly on account of the business hoped for and partly under influence of propaganda organized by international Jewry.
I have also made it quite plain that, if the nations of Europe are again to be regarded as mere shares to be bought and sold by these international conspirators in money and finance, then that race, Jewry, which is the real criminal of this murderous struggle, will be saddled with the responsibility. I further left no one in doubt that this time not only would millions of children of Europe’s Aryan peoples die of hunger, not only would millions of grown men suffer death, and not only hundreds of thousands of women and children be burnt and bombed to death in the towns, without the real criminal having to atone for this guilt, even if by more humane means.
After six years of war, which in spite of all setbacks will go down one day in history as the most glorious and valiant demonstration of a nation’s life purpose, I cannot forsake the city which is the capital of this Reich. As the forces are too small to make any further stand against the enemy attack at this place, and our resistance is gradually being weakened by men who are as deluded as they are lacking in initiative, I should like, by remaining in this town, to share my fate with those, the millions of others, who have also taken upon themselves to do so. Moreover I do not wish to fall into the hands of an enemy who requires a new spectacle organized by the Jews for the amusement of their hysterical masses.
I have decided therefore to remain in Berlin and there of my own free will to choose death at the moment when I believe the position of the Fuehrer and Chancellor itself can no longer be held.
I die with a happy heart, aware of the immeasurable deeds and achievements of our soldiers at the front, our women at home, the achievements of our farmers and workers and the work, unique in history, of our youth who bear my name.
That from the bottom of my heart I express my thanks to you all, is just as self-evident as my wish that you should, because of that, on no account give up the struggle but rather continue it against the enemies of the Fatherland, no matter where, true to the creed of a great Clausewitz. From the sacrifice of our soldiers and from my own unity with them unto death, will in any case spring up in the history of Germany, the seed of a radiant renaissance of the National-Socialist movement and thus of the realization of a true community of nations.
Many of the most courageous men and women have decided to unite their lives with mine until the very last I have begged and finally ordered them not to do this, but to take part in the further battle of the Nation. I beg the heads of the Armies, the Navy, and the Air Force to strengthen by all possible means the spirit of resistance of our soldiers in the National-Socialist sense, with special reference to the fact that also I myself, as founder and creator of this movement, have preferred death to cowardly abdication or even capitulation.
May it, at some future time, become part of the code of honor of the German officer—as is already the case in our Navy—that the surrender of a district or of a town is impossible, and that above all the leaders here must march ahead as shining examples, faithfully fulfilling their duty unto death.
Second Part of the Political Testament
Before my death I expel the former Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering from the party and deprive him of all rights which he may enjoy by virtue of the decree of June 29th, 1941; and also by virtue of my statement in the Reichstag on September 1st, 1939, I appoint in his place Grossadmiral Doenitz, President of the Reich and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Before my death I expel the former Reichsfuehrer-SS and Minister of the Interior, Heinrich Himmler, from the party and from all offices of State. In his stead I appoint Gauleiter Karl Hanke as Reichsfuehrer-SS and Chief of the German Police, and Gauleiter Paul Giesler as Reich Minister of the Interior.
Goering and Himmler, quite apart from their disloyalty to my person, have done immeasurable harm to the country and the whole nation by secret negotiations with the enemy, which they conducted without my knowledge and against my wishes, and by illegally attempting to seize power in the State for themselves.
(Editor’s Note: Goering & Himmler naively believed that they could end the war by making peace with the United States and fighting the Soviets together instead.)
In order to give the German people a government composed of honorable men,—a government which will fulfill its pledge to continue the war by every means—I appoint the following members of the new Cabinet as leaders of the nation:
President of the Reich: DOENITZ Chancellor of the Reich: DR. GOEBBELS Party Minister: BORMANN Foreign Minister: SEYSS-INQUART
[Here follow fifteen others.]
Although a number of these men, such as Martin Bormann, Dr. Goebbels, etc., together with their wives, have joined me of their own free will and did not wish to leave the capital of the Reich under any circumstances, but were willing to perish with me here, I must nevertheless ask them to obey my request, and in this case set the interests of the nation above their own feelings. By their work and loyalty as comrades they will be just as close to me after death, as I hope that my spirit will linger among them and always go with them. Let them be hard, but never unjust, above all let them never allow fear to influence their actions, and set the honor of the nation above everything in the world. Finally, let them be conscious of the fact that our task, that of continuing the building of a National Socialist State, represents the work of the coming centuries, which places every single person under an obligation always to serve the common interest and to subordinate his own advantage to this end. I demand of all Germans, all National Socialists, men, women, and all the men of the Armed Forces, that they be faithful and obedient unto death to the new government and its President.
Above all I charge the leaders of the nation and those under them to scrupulous observance of the laws of race and to merciless opposition to the universal poisoner of all peoples, international Jewry. Given in Berlin, this 29th day of April 1945. 4:00 A.M.
“Our nation was born in genocide. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode.”
Those words were spoken by Martin Luther King Jr in his 1963 book “Why We Can’t Wait.”
Of course, the U.S. was not the only nation who tried as a matter of policy to wipe out its indigenous people–Canada, Australia and others did the same. But the thrust of what King was saying is correct.
The month of December is filled with various kinds of celebrations and festivities; however, there is one event that always seems to be conveniently overlooked by the wider society. This December 29 marks the 131st anniversary of the massacre of the Native people at Wounded Knee. Wounded Knee is located on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
What Whites as a collective do not understand, approve, or develop they demonize, ridicule or attack. Part of the background to the Wounded Knee massacre, lies in the spiritual of the Ghost Dance Movement practiced by some of the Native Nations, among them the Sioux people. After the surrender of the Sioux Nation in the 1876-1877 war, the government drove the Sioux out of Nebraska, all that was left to them was 35,000 square miles of almost useless land
After protests and compromises between the Native Nations and the government, groups settled in various parts of the territory. The 35,000 square miles of land given to the Great Sioux Reservation was mostly taken away eventually from the Native people.
When the Sioux killed George Armstrong Custer of the 7th Cavalry Regiment, the U.S. Army wanted revenge. Sitting Bull, the great Sioux chief was in exile in Canada with some of his followers, where they stayed for four years; this partly explains why the government intruders were successful in retaking most of the land from the Sioux.
The government tried to convince Sitting Bull to return to the United States with the condition that, they surrender all weapons and horses as; they were considered a threat to the United States, the British Government, and the Royal Mounted Police in Canada. Chief Sitting Bull and some of his followers eventually returned to the United States and was very influential among many of the other Nations.Land Claims: An Indigenous People’s History of the United States
Many of the Native people of the Reservation believed in and practiced what was known as the Ghost Dance; a ritualistic dance based on the belief that the dead would come back to life and that non-believers would be destroyed. Sitting Bull was very skeptical.
The popularity of the Ghost Dance among the Native people worried the government and soldiers were brought into some Reservations to stop the ceremonies. Indian police were sent to the Reservation to remove and arrest Kicking Bear who went to Standing Rock to teach Chief Sitting Bull’s people the Ghost Dance. Sitting Bull took no action against Kicking Bear, and it was suggested that he be arrested and jailed in a military prison.
On December 15, 1890 forty-three Indian police surrounded the cabin of Sitting Bull while at the same time a group of cavalry stood in waiting as support some miles away. While being taken away by Indian Affairs agents, the leader of the arrest team was shot, in retaliation he fired hitting Sitting Bull instead; a traitor named Red Tomahawk would assassinate Sitting Bull on the spot.
Because of the influence of the Ghost Dance, the Sioux people took no retaliation; instead hundreds fled from Standing Rock to nearby Ghost Dance camps or with Chief Red Cloud at Pine Ridge. On the morning of December 29, 1890, the United States army’s 7th cavalry surrounded a group of Ghost Dancers whose leader was Big Foot a Lakota Sioux chief.
The soldiers demanded that the men surrendered and hand over all their weapons; not satisfied with the number of weapons surrendered, the soldiers raided the tents confiscating axes and knives; only two guns were found from the raid. A fight later ensued between a native and a soldier, a shot was fired, and reports stated nobody knew by whom.
The soldiers immediately opened fire indiscriminately on the unarmed people killing men, women, and children, using Hotchkiss Mountain Guns sited on hills overlooking the camp. When the massacre stopped 153 native people were killed nearly half of them women and children; the cavalry suffered disproportionate losses; 29 soldiers killed and 39 wounded.
One estimate is that the final toll nears 300 of 350 men, women and children who were in the camp; on top of this the indignity that followed was deplorable. Many of the killed or dying were left to lie where they had fallen and later froze from the snowstorm that followed later that day.

The deplorable scene is best described in a quote by Black Elk in the book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown.
Black Elk said:
I did not know then how much was ended. When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can still see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as when I saw them with my eyes still young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud and was buried in the blizzard. A people’s dream died there. It was a beautiful dream….the nation’s hoop is broken and scattered. There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead.
On that infamous day of December 29, 1890, the U.S. government fueled by the doctrine of white supremacy, carried out one of its many atrocities that have repeated themselves dozens of times over—in places like My Lai, No Gun-Ri, Bola Baluk, Baghuz, the Plain of Jars and Kunduz among others around the world where the U.S. army has slaughtered native peoples.

These latter crimes reiterate that America’s unwillingness to “reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode [genocide of natives],” as Martin Luther King Jr. put it, continues, and is embedded in the ideology of white supremacy and great power chauvinism that drives imperialist policies.
To this day, each successive Administration has only given hypocritical lip service in acknowledging the atrocities meted out to the Native people. Whether it is the disparity in the allocation of resources for development; the imprisonment of Leonard Peltier or the activists protesting the Enbridge pipeline, Native-Americans are still oppressed.
Their rights and treaties are still trampled on and ignored and they are effectively written out of the mainstream narrative. “Peace and good will to all men” should meaningfully include the Native peoples.

Here Come the Fake Videos * Eerie Tom Cruise Videos, Reanimate Unease With Deepfakes * Internet Companies Prepare to Fight the ‘Deepfake’ Future * Deepfakes — Believe at Your Own Risk * (NYT YouTube): Do These AI Fake People Look Real to You? * Deepfakes: Is This Video Even Real? * (NYT Tweet by Nick Kristoff: “Deep Fake” of Queen Elizabeth – Reminder of the Perils of Deep Fakes
Over the course of the past three years, many well-known specimens of bottom-feeding scum from the intertwined worlds of Fake News and politics have been “warning” normiedom about the “dangers” of “Deep Fake” video technology that can present the appearance, voice and in-sync lip movement of a targeted individual in a manner almost indistinguishable from the actual person himself. Just do an Internet search for “Deep Fake” and see for yourself just how afraid of this technology “the usual suspects” are. Even Poop Frankie the Fake has warned the world’s Catholics about Deep Fakes! (here)
The “Editorial Board” of The Anti-New York Times has, for some time now, maintained that the White Hats have already been using Deep Fake technology, masks and imposters as fill-ins for certain Satanic celebrities and crooked politicians who have already been “disappeared” to the military prison at Guantanamo Bay on the island of Cuba. We also believe that actors — some wearing sophisticated masks — are being utilized for the same purpose. These assertions always draw a mixed response from the loyal readership — ranging from: “Holy shit! You’re right, Mike! These ARE fakes!” on one side, to: “Mike, love your work, but you’re really discrediting yourself with this crazy talk!” – on the other end.
Rather than make this case with words, it’s better to use images — because, after all, it is imagery that we are talking about. Let’s have a look at some of these imposters — and some headlines from various entertainment media sources, all containing the word “unrecognizable.”
JOE BIDEN & ANTHONY FAUCI Column 1: Fake Biden in mask — on CNBC (Video Here) // Columns 2 & 3: Fake Dr. Falsie in mask — on NBC’s Meet the Press (Video Here)
WILL SMITH is “unrecognizable.”
TOM CRUISE is “unrecognizable.”
DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON 1. “The Rock” (r) is 6′ 5″ tall and 260 pounds. (here) Charles Barkley (l) is 6’6″ tall and 250 pounds. (here) — If the two men are roughly the same size, then why does Barkley — in both height & weight — appear to dwarf Johnson in a recent photo? // 2. Has an Alabama cop taken The Rock’s place?
BEYONCE is “unrecognizable.”
JENNIFER LOPEZ is “unrecognizable.”
BEN AFFLECK is “unrecognizable.”
MERYL STREEP is “unrecognizable.”
CHRISSY TIEGEN is “unrecognizable.”
NICOLE KIDMAN is “unrecognizable.”
DEMI MOORE is “unrecognizable.”
TOM HANKS is “unrecognizable.”
MADONNA is “unrecognizable.”
There’s something strange going on. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t quite look nor sound like herself; Alec Baldwin (who also looks “unrecognizable”) is finished after that “shooting” incident; the once holy names of St. Andrew Cuomo and St. Bill Gates are shit now; and a 40-year personal friend of Bruce Willis’s (whom we will not name) tells us that the star actor has disappeared.
So, why this pantomime act, you ask? That’s a good question — and the best we can theoretically infer is this: Under the perfect cover and noise of “Covid” — the White Hats removed or placed under submission as many of the black chess pieces from the board as possible — thus rendering the crooks and the Satanists harmless — before presenting the grand finale of “The Movie” to all of shell-shocked Normiedom. After the coming “Dark Winter” of high heating bills, food inflation and shortages has passed, the approval ratings of the deliberately stumbling and bumbling “Joe Biden” should be down in the 20s by the time Trump’s “Truth Social” media colossus rolls out in February. That’s when the White Hats — a la Sun Tzu — will, we believe, strike with maximum ferocity.
Some will say: “Mike, love you man. But you’ve really taken a ride on the Q crazy train now!” —– But have I though? Let’s wait and see. In the meantime, “youse guys” have gotta admit: the fact that so many big names are suddenly being Deep Faked or turned “unrecognizable”(ENTERTAINMENT MEDIA’S WORD, NOT MINE) is like something out of a … well, movie! — Like Mission Impossible.
The release of the most recent report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was met with widespread international alarm. The BBC wrote that this was “code red for humanity” and the New York Times warned, “A Hotter Future Is Certain.” A Guardian headline stated that major changes to the climate were “inevitable” and “irreversible,” while both the BBC and the Guardian seemingly celebrated a survey that showed 4 in 10 young people now have almost uncontrollable anxiety about the climate.
According to the survey, nearly half of 16-25-year-olds around the world are hesitant to have children as a result of what they believe is a climate crisis and feel that governments are doing too little to prevent it.
In come the bankers with the help of the UN and world governments to finally save the day. The first step is: Find a way to purchase, own, and monetize the land we need to conserve.
In October, journalist Whitney Webb reported on one of the plans launched by a new group called the ‘Intrinsic Exchange Group‘ (IEG) that promises to save us from this catastrophe once and for all. According to the IEG, with the help of multinational corporations, billionaires, and other investors, the UN and IEG will rescue the planet from certain extermination.
After all, the UN conceded once that ‘the businesses of the world is now the business of the UN.
In September, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) announced it had developed a new asset class and listing vehicle aimed at “preserving and restoring the natural assets that ultimately underlie the ability for there to be life on Earth.” The vehicle, known as a natural asset company, or NAC, will enable the formation of specialized firms “that own the rights to the ecosystem services produced on a certain piece of land, such as carbon sequestration or clean water.” The natural assets that these NACs commodify will subsequently be maintained, managed, and grown by them.
In the US, Summit Carbon Solutions recently began work on obtaining land in North Iowa for its proposed Midwest Carbon Express pipeline.
Summit Carbon Solutions, an offshoot of Summit Agriculture Group, is behind the $4.5 billion Midwest Carbon Express project. It would be the largest carbon capture project in the world with the goal of sending 12 million tons of CO2 annually to western North Dakota, where it can be stored underground.
Landowners expressed concerns regarding Summit Carbon’s use of eminent domain, which allows the company to build the pipeline on land without consent from the landowner.
Eminent domain is when a government body can acquire private property for public use, with compensation for affected landowners.
While shady deals like these have been happening in the US for decades, these new corporations — soon to be traded on the stock market casino — aren’t going to be largely focused on land looted in the US.
Allegedly, NACs will use the funds from these newly obtained and monetized natural assets to help fight climate change by ‘preserving’ the rain forests, mountains, and lakes mostly abroad. They also vow to change the “conventional agricultural production practices” of farms to make them more efficient and sustainable.
But, the creators of NACs concede the ultimate goal is to extract trillions in profits from natural processes such as photosynthesis, apply intrinsic values to natural processes, and then monetize it.
“Our hope is that owning a natural asset company is going to be a way that an increasingly broad range of investors have the ability to invest in something that’s intrinsically valuable, but, up to this point, was really excluded from the financial markets,” said NYSE COO Michael Blaugrund upon the launch of the NAC idea.
On their website the Intrinsic Exchange Group states that they are “using Intrinsic value as the umbrella for values not yet identified or quantified, as well as values such as cultural, social, aesthetic, spiritual, etc.”
Following the launch, Fortune Magazine noted that NACs allow for a ‘new form of sustainable investment’ which has caught the ears of BlackRock CEO Larry Fink along with countless other infamous investors.
…”In return, investors will get access to a new form of sustainable investment—a space that has enthralled the likes of BlackRock CEO Larry Fink…” Fortune Magazine wrote.
In 2019, the IEG teamed up with NYSE — which itself holds a minority stake — to launch the idea of NACs. The top three investors in the IEG are the Rockefeller Foundation, Aberdare Ventures, a venture capital firm founded by Paul Klingenstein focused mainly on digital healthcare, and the Inter-American Development Bank, which is the largest source of development financing for Latin America.
Climate Alarmism: A Land Grab Manufactured And Funded By The Bankers, For The Bankers
IEG is currently working with the Costa Rican government to guide a ‘pilot program’ of the efforts in Costa Rica. Andrea Meza Murillo, Costa Rican Minister of Environment and Energy, argued that the pilot project with IEG “deepens the economic analysis of the economic value of nature and continues to mobilize the flow of funds for nature maintenance.”
According to the IEG, the plan is to pioneer “a new asset class based on natural assets, and the mechanism to convert them to financial capital.” The new ‘assets’ according to the group are all of which make “life on Earth possible and enjoyable, and include biological systems that provide clean air, water, foods, and medicines.”
Put simply, entire ecosystems and the benefits people receive from them, will become financial assets. Assets will include food production, tourism, clean water, biodiversity, pollination, and even carbon sequestration. The assets will then be owned by corporations, and stocks in these assets will be sold on Wallstreet.
As IEG notes, the NAC is just the issuer of the natural asset, while the assets the NAC represents can be purchased by investors like BlackRock. Those investors include institutional investors, private investors, individuals and institutions, corporations, sovereign wealth funds, and multilateral development banks.
All of this is only possible if the ownership of the land is transferred into the hands of the banks.
From the IEG Website:
Webb recently reported that in early November an “industry-led and UN-convened” alliance of private banking and financial institutions announced their plans at the COP26 conference. The group is called the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) and the goal is to overhaul the role of global and regional financial institutions, including the World Bank and IMF, as part of a broader plan to “transform” the global financial system.
According to the group’s own progress report, the group aims to merge these institutions with the private-banking interests that compose the alliance and create a new system of “global financial governance.”
To obtain the land necessary for the NAC, developing nations would be forced to establish business environments beneficial to the alliance members and open up land. This can be accomplished in several ways including debt-for-nature swaps. This process is where a creditor country forgives a portion of the public bilateral debt of a debtor nation in exchange for environmental commitments from that country.
The degree of debt-for-nature swaps groups like these have engaged in have been well documented in Argentina, specifically Patagonia, for decades. What occurred in Argentina and Chile however would pale in comparison to the level of swaps this plan would entail.
At the Climate Leaders Summit in April 2021, convened by the US and attended by global policymakers, Argentina alluded to another one of these swaps. Argentina’s president Alberto Fernández pushed for an agreement with its creditor countries to reduce part of the foreign debt in exchange for increased ‘environmental and climate commitments.’
In other words, when a Latin American country owes money, they open up their land to pay the debt or the interest of the debt. This process is normally referred to as Debt-trap diplomacy or put simply, debt-entrapment.
Multilateral development banks (MDBs), such as the World Bank, leverage the debt of developing countries to force them to privatize public assets. The GFANZ report states that the Alliance is now trying to use the same controversial tactics by forcing more deregulation in developing countries to allow alliance members to invest.
In the 1990s founder of Northface clothing, Doug Tompkins, and his second wife, Kris Tompkins, who was an executive of clothing brand Patagonia, purchased more than 2 million acres of wilderness in Chile under the guise of ‘conservation efforts.’ Following Tomkins’ death, their NGO Tompkins Conservation formally donated one million acresof land back to the Chilean government.
The other way this land grab can be accomplished is by using powerful international groups like the UN to pressure developing countries to deregulate and open up their land for privatization due to the ‘urgent life-threatening’ menace of climate change.
The GFANZ alliance was launched in April by John Kerry, Janet Yellen, and former chair of the Bank of England, Mark Carney. Carney also co-chairs the alliance with Michael Bloomberg.
While the world focuses on Russia reportedly planning a military offensive against Ukraine, and China apparently rehearsing for an attack on Taiwan, the supranational banking elite is quietly invading the US and countries worldwide to loot their resources.
John Kerry recently noted that “the largest financial players in the world recognize energy transition represents a vast commercial opportunity.” Boris Johnson described GFANZ as being responsible for paving the way to “uniting the world’s banks and financial institutions behind the global transition to net zero.”
The principals listed on the GFANZ website include the CEOs of BlackRock, Bank of America, Citi Bank, Banco Santander, and HSBC. The CEO of the London Stock Exchange Group and Nili Gilbert, chairwoman for the David Rockefeller Fund are also listed.
In mid-November, Michael Bloomberg hosted his ‘New Economy’ forum. According to the event’s website, the group is focused primarily on climate change and COVID-19 vaccines.
“Covid-19 held a mirror to society’s biggest problems, from climate change to inequality, forcing humanity to grapple with their consequences. But there is hope. Even as the pandemic still rages, the success of groundbreaking mRNA vaccines, the acceleration of the digital economy during lockdowns, and a focus on government spending to save lives and improve livelihoods demonstrate that humankind is capable of taking on — and overcoming — great challenges. Breakthroughs are possible. In science and technology, we’ve entered a new age of discovery.”
Bloomberg’s ‘New Economy’ forum is led by Bill Gates, Henry Kissinger, and Penny Pritzker, as well as a dozen other board members with ties to multinational banks like Goldman Sachs. Former Governor of the People’s Bank of China Zhou Xiaochuan, as well as the founder of Binance, are on the board as well.
“As part of COP26, GFANZ— a key group at that conference—is publishing a plan aimed at scaling “private capital flows to emerging and developing economies.” Per the alliance’s press release, this plan focuses on “the development of country platforms to connect the now enormous private capital committed to net zero with country projects, scaling blended finance through MDBs [multilateral development banks] and developing high integrity, credible global carbon markets.” The press release notes that this “enormous private capital” is money that alliance members seek to invest in emerging and developing countries, estimated at over $130 trillion, and that—in order to deploy these trillions in investment—“the global financial system is being transformed” by this very alliance in coordination with the group that convened them, the United Nations.”
A “country platform” is defined by GFANZ as a mechanism for a “public-private partnership around a specific issue or geography.” In other words, a country with lucrative land they can obtain ownership of, monetize, corporatize, and sell on the New York Stock Exchange.
As documented in a recent Bloomberg article, U.S. climate envoy John Kerry says investment banks including Goldman and Morgan Stanley are ready to invest $4.16 trillion in the energy transition over the next decade. “We have to find a way to deploy that money,” he says.
“We have to start where the greatest amount of emissions are if we’re going to win the battle,” Kerry told the Bloomberg New Economy Forum. “We have to, all of us, be able to put the deals together that will phase out their coal fast.”
According to another Bloomberg report, Jeff Bezos has given over $1 billion dollars to date. Last year, Bezos gave $791 million to 16 organizations as part of his commitment to his ‘Earth Fund to fight climate change.’ Bezos has promised to distribute the full amount by 2030.
The GFANZ report plainly states that the MDB should be used to encourage developing countries to“create an appropriate high-level and cross-cutting enabling environment” for alliance members’ investments in these countries.
Another mechanism that comes into play is the Global Public-Private Partnership(GPPP) The GPPP is a worldwide collective of billionaires — including central banks, philanthropic foundations, think-tanks, and governments — working together as a network in order to implement policy favorable to the banks.
As journalist Iain Davis writes, “Under our current model of Westphalian national sovereignty, the government of one nation cannot make legislation or law in another. However, through global governance, the GPPP creates policy initiatives at the global level which then cascade down to people in every nation. This typically occurs via an intermediary policy distributor, such as the IMF or IPCC, and national government then enact the recommended policies.”
Based on the proposed international ‘problem’ the GPPP enforces the international consensus for the ‘solution.’ It is then the policy framework is set. The supranational partners then collaborate to ensure the desired policies are implemented and enforced. The GPPP can control nations across the world without the need for traditional individual legislation.
At the same time, Bloomberg partnered with holdings company Equitable, Franch Insurance firm AXA, and banks like Goldman Sachs and HSBC to form the Climate Finance Leadership Initiative (CFLI). The group was formed at the request of the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres.
Through the CFLI, networks of banks and corporations recommend policy to achieve ‘net-zero emissions.’ One of the solutions implied is obtaining huge swaths of land in North America to build solar and wind farms.
Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates maintain a close relationship in this broad network of self-described philanthropists.
An analysis by The Land Report found in January that Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates owns 242,000 acres of farmland in the US, making him the largest private-farmland owner in the country.
Gates’ farmland portfolio stretches across 18 states, according to the report. His biggest holdings are in Louisiana (69,071 acres), Arkansas (47,927 acres), and Nebraska (20,588 acres).
According to another report, one of Gates’ investment firms also purchased about 25,000 acres near Phoenix, part of which to be transformed into a suburb with space for 80,000 homes. Gates is not alone, recent viral news reports indicate that corporations Like BlackRock are buying up thousands of homes and entire neighborhoods, further pricing Americans out of the market.
In 2017, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also pledged $300 million to ‘help low-income farmers in Asia and Africa adapt to climate change.’
According to an Insider report, in 2011 the Oakland Institute made one of their investigative reports public regarding billionaires buying up land in Africa. The OI stated that the amount of land being purchased in the continent ‘concerned them,’ and that hedge funds and other foreign firms have been acquiring large swathes of African land, often without proper contracts. In the same year, the BBC published a headline titled ‘Hedge Funds Grabbing Land in Africa.’
The OI report concluded that the acquisitions had displaced millions of small farmers and is “creating insecurity in the global food system that could be a much bigger threat than terrorism,” the report said.
The interest these billionaires have in this land abroad is not just the infinite lucrative potential of NACs, it also includes precious metals and minerals.
According to the New York Post, Mineral exploration company KoBold Metals —backed by billionaires including Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates — recently signed a deal to search and mine for critical materials used in electric vehicles.
According to one of their recent reports, KoBold metals calls on networks of billionaires and multinational firms to get behind ‘competing with China’ in the race to develop electric vehicles, in order to aid the Western world in being the first to achieve net-zero emissions.
In their report, KoBold states that more than half of the world’s cobalt reserves are in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and two-thirds of the world’s production of refined cobalt, a prerequisite for large EV batteries, takes place in China.
The company implies that the Western world needs to find a way to prevent China’s influence over natural resources, including lithium, cobalt, and other precious metals.
It seems this broad network of philanthropists seeking to achieve net-zero emissions forgot that Cobalt mining is one of the dirtiest processes for the environment. It should come as no surprise that a recent report from Mining.com predicts that CO2 emissions from cobalt production are expected to soar in 2021.
Lockheed Martin is also apparently getting in on the action.
UK Seabed Resources, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, in partnership with the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, currently holds licenses and contracts to explore endless amounts of the Pacific seafloor to extract mineral-rich polymetallic nodules.
Tanzania — one of the countries in Africa on the chopping block for multinational firms — has recently become a target for Nickel production. According to Reuters, the Northwest part of the country has the world’s largest development-ready, high-grade nickel sulfide deposit. Conspiracy theories surrounding the recent death of Tanzanian President John Magufuli are usually centered around his COVID-19 vaccine response, but his regulations against investment firms are a far more plausible conspiracy.
According to a Reuters report, Barrick Gold and Glencore lost a massive nickel project in 2018 when Tanzanian President John Magufuli’s administration revoked their retention license along with the licenses of 10 other investors as part of new mining laws and regulations.
Just months after Magufi’s death, UK-based mining firm Kabanga Nickel Limited signed an agreement with Tanzania to develop the Kabanga nickel project formerly sought by Barrick Gold and Glencore. The company says the recent agreement could help ease electric-vehicle manufacturers’ ‘insatiable demand for nickel.’
In 2017, Tanzania nationalized $29.5 million worth of diamonds it seized from Petra Diamonds Ltd.’s Williamson mine after Tanzanian authorities accused the company of under-declaring mineral exports. In May of 2021, the Guardian reported that the London Stock Exchange-listed company paid a settlement of £4.3m in compensation to dozens of Tanzanians who allegedly suffered serious human rights abuses at mines.
A US-Supported 2019 coup in Bolivia — which many news outlets say led to massacres — came less than a week after former President Juan Morales stopped a multinational firm’s Lithium Deal in the country. Morales resigned as president on 10 November 2019, and he called his removal “forced” and a “coup” but also said that he wanted to stop the bloodshed.
Morales thanked Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, whom he credited with saving his life, after a Mexican government plane flew Morales out of Cochabamba, refueling in Paraguay before arriving in Mexico.
Morales was no saint, however. The former President oversaw a time when Bolivia was one of the largest producers of illicit drugs, had close relationships with drug cartels, and faced multiple rape accusations. In 2020, several photographs of him with a minor came to light and were circulated on social networks. Bolivian authorities said that Morales had been in a relationship with the minor since the age of 14.
The Western world has a well-documented history of bankers, war, and regime change. Many claim the U.S.-backed 2011 military intervention in Libya by NATO forces, and the subsequent death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was an intentional act by the US government which sought to benefit bankers.
Just six months after the email, Muammar Gaddafi, the deposed leader of Libya, was captured and killed after the Battle of Sirte.
Dr Eric Rubin of Harvard university admitted “We’re never going to learn how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it, and that’s just the way it goes”.
The committee was posed with the following question:
‘Based on the totality of scientific evidence available, do the benefits of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine when administered as a 2-dose series outweigh its risks for use in children 5-11 years of age?‘
THE JCVI – “THERE IS LITTLE RISK OF COVID IN YOUNG PEOPLE”
The U.K. government’s vaccine advisory panel — Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation says that a first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine could prevent 87 COVID-related hospital admissions per million children but comes with a risk of 3 to 17 cases of vaccine-induced Myocarditis. A second dose prevents a further six hospitalizations per million but risks an additional 12 to 34 cases of myocarditis.
The JVCI deliberated on the risk and benefits of children and young people receiving the vaccination and have said that the evidence strongly indicates that almost all children and young people are at very low risk from COVID-19. Where symptoms are seen in children and young people, they are “typically mild, and little different from other mild respiratory viral infections which circulate each year”.
Although the government had given missed education as a good reason to vaccinate, the JCVI addressed this arguing that young people who have “SARS-CoV2” infection do not become so unwell that they need to take time off school. Should the government wish to consider vaccinating children aged less than 18, the known benefits are limited.
In September the JCVI declined to recommend vaccine for adolescents 12 upwards, there would be no reason to think they would recommend the vaccine for the younger 5 – 11-year-olds. They instead passing the decision to Britain’s chief medical officers, preferring to wait for more data to be accrued.
VACCINATE THEM TO SAVE THE ADULTS?
That is all well and good, but arguably, sufficient data and evidence has been accrued, for instance, the modelling used by the British government taken from the University of Warwick and from Public Health England, have indicated that vaccinating young people and children, may have some impact on hospitalisations and even deaths in older adults but even by their own admission, “the extent of such benefits is highly uncertain.”
What we are certain of is that the children should not be made to feel responsible for deaths of adults who have had adverse reactions, or simply died of the “co morbidities” that they would have died of anyway.
According to Professor David Livermore, a medical microbiologist at the University of East Anglia ‘Vaccinating children to protect adults via herd immunity is ethically dubious and is scientifically weak.’ There are also still fears about myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation detected in children, mostly boys, in around one in 10,000 cases after vaccination.
VACCINATE THEM DESPITE THE ADVERSE REPORTS
We are also certain that there are post vaccination risks for children and it is the adults that should be keeping them safe. The certainty of risk can be clarified as a result of the reports of adverse reactions in the UKs Yellow Card Scheme and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) of the United States.
Just one study alone examined the VAERS data, the researchers found that post-vaccination incidences of cardiac adverse event (CAE) rate for boys 12 – 17 equates to 162.2 per million children without medical comorbidities and are highest in young boys aged 12-15.
The event rate far exceeds the expected 120-day COVID-19 hospitalisation rate at both moderate (August 21, 2021 rates) and high COVID-19 hospitalisation incidence. This evidence is further strengthened by the latest assessment published by the Advisory Committee on Immunisation Practices (ACIP) on Aug. 30, “data available to date suggest association of myocarditis with mRNA vaccination in adolescents and young adults.”
VACCINATE THEM DESPITE THE WARNING OF DEATHS ASSOCIATED WITH IT?
Again simply by looking at the reported adverse events in VAERS a bold note accompanying the reports can be clearly seen stating *Note that the total number of deaths associated with the COVID-19 vaccines is greater than the number of deaths associated with all other vaccines combined since the year 1990. That statement alone should mean end of discussion, particularly when that discussion is referring to the roll out of the emergency use authorisation of what is termed “COVID Vaccine”.
OR JUST VACCINATE THEM AND THEN WE CAN FIND OUT IF IT IS SAFE?
It therefore would make anyone wonder why there is a need for deliberation and more data, after one voting member of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee admitted that it won’t be known fully whether Pfizer’s vaccine is safe for 5 to 11-year-old children, until it begins being administered.
Dr Eric Rubin of Harvard university admitted “We’re never going to learn how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it, and that’s just the way it goes”.
Despite Dr. Rubin’s admission, the panel’s decision was unanimous in favour of recommending it under emergency use authorisation (EUA). Unbelievably, although it perhaps should be predictable by now, Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted 17-0 with one doctor abstaining, clearing the way for the full FDA authorisation.
The question is, will parents of young children agree to them being guinea pigs for their agenda?
