Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been accused of pressuring his former attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to cut a deal with SNC-Lavalin, an engineering and construction company that is facing corruption charges, and then retaliating against her by ‘demoting’ her when she refused to play ball. Many are calling for him to resign. SNC-Lavalin is accused of offering $36 million in bribes to Libyan officials between 2001 and 2011, when Muammar Gaddafi was in power. Trudeau interfered on behalf of SNC-Lavalin because the company is headquartered in Quebec, a swing province, and he wants votes for his Liberal Party.
In a nutshell
Mr Trudeau has been accused of pressuring his former attorney general to cut a deal with a company facing corruption charges – and retaliating when she refused to play ball.
The revelations could cost Trudeau the October general election, some pundits say.
The former AG, Jody Wilson-Raybould, says Trudeau and his staff spent months trying to convince her that taking the company to trial would cost Canadians jobs, and their party votes.
She also says she was subject to “veiled threats”, which she believes were made good when she was shuffled out of her department.
Now another minister, Jane Philpott, has quit saying it was “untenable” for her to continue due to “serious concerns” raised by the case.
Oxford has partnered with pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca in order to produce billions of doses. That means that, even though the vaccine is of little value, the government will purchase the billion doses and force everyone to accept them.
Over 700 looters were arrested, but more than 400 were immediately released without bail. It appears that city and state leaders have ordered police to stand down to encourage as much violence and destruction as possible to eventually justify martial law, which is the end game for ending America as a free nation.
In cities around the US, pallets of bricks have been delivered to riot locations. There is no construction in these areas, so it is logical to conclude that they are being provided for rioters to break windows. This is further proof of a well funded organized operation. These are not mere “protesters”.
Calling for stronger police and/or military response is exactly what the enemies of America want. Rather than calling for martial law, why don’t commentators call for putting the organizers of these riots into prison NOW? Can’t people see that they are professionals, not protesters?
Leftist college professors take to the media and Twitter accounts to voice their opinions, mostly sympathetic to rioters. They are using social media to promote and justify violence. The presidents and trustees of these universities have not objected to their rhetoric of hatred and violence.
This raises the question of whether police will have the power to forcibly enter a home and remove a lover from another address. This COVID Theater would be hilarious if it didn’t tragically affect so many lives.
Her arrest came as 47 NYPD vehicles were set on fire and damaged in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Rioters also were attacking police. An estimated 33 police officers were injured in the city. De Blasio’s daughter’s arrest came as he was urging protesters to return to their homes.
Trump has ordered the Pentagon to prepare the US military to deploy domestically inside the US. As the violence escalates, people will welcome the military. Minnesota is using ‘contact tracing’ techniques to track rioters – and then everybody.
Every state has plans for contact tracing. In Washington state, where contact tracing is said to be voluntary, non-compliant individuals may be sent to prison and fined up to $2,000 per day for non-compliance.
The NYPD said that several officers sustained injuries, including one who was struck in the head with a garbage can and another who was punched in the face. Protesters shut down the street around police headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the immediate ban of 1,500 models of semi-automatic guns after Nova Scotia shootings on April 18, 2020. The new ban would not have stopped the gunman from obtaining his weapons, because the guns were obtained illegally.
To the skeptical mind, this sounds like a flimsy ploy to use taxpayer funds to pay for the support of terrorism in Canada. Why would anyone want to do that? Because some people in high places actually want terrorism so there will be a plausible excuse to enact laws against liberty and to declare martial law. Martial law is the ultimate excuse for totalitarianism.
Border crossers are clogging the asylum system, flooding homeless shelters and are being moved out of college dormitories to make way for students. But Trudeau has a new solution: Move hundreds of immigrants into hotels where they will live at public expense. Canada could halt the illegal crossing with the stroke of a pen- but it won’t because it doesn’t serve the people, but has a different master.
