Balding Bears And Truckers

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

At the end of the day, and a little late to the party, leadership in Europe condemned Canadian dictator Trudeau for his behavior towards protesters in the Freedom Convoy.

Good on them. I think. More on that later.

I watched footage firsthand and spoke to a live streamer that was told they were an enemy of Canada for recording violence.

They were an enemy of a Tyranny perhaps, but not an enemy to the Canadian people.

A line from an anthem comes to mind.

Thou True North, Strong and Free

Frankly, I am appreciative of the Ottawa Truckers. I wish us Yankees had done it first. I wish Americans had stood up stoutly overall against Trudeau like Europe did after the fact.

It is funny that Trump and Europe stand in solidarity.

Former U.S. president Donald Trump has taken aim at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, telling his supporters that if they want to fight for democracy abroad, “they should start with the democracy that is under threat right next door, a place called Canada.”

I believe Trump was talking about Ukraine when he spoke of fighting for democracy abroad.

People are up in arms about Ukraine, probably with justification.

Some guy named Sean Penn is going to smelt his Oscars if Ukraine’s President Zelensky isn’t allowed to speak at the Academy Awards.

Now, the last time I checked, this is a smelt.

And this, is an oscar.

Oscars are predators that eat fish, so smelting an oscar seems pretty good for the oscar.

Where were all these preachy actors and actresses when relatively peaceful protesters were beaten by police/military without nametags in Ottawa?

United Nations in Ottawa? Who knows? No Identification.

A threat to democracy is indeed to the North.

Plot twist. I wonder if these noble European leaders had involvement in suppressing Freedom in Ottawa and are now distancing themselves from it because there is a Balding Bear expanding his territory in the European backyard.

When I use Google, the lady doth protest too much.

Recently, a fringe conspiracy is such until the climate changes and it is then declared fact..

Somewhere down the road, we will see where the unmarked green men came from. If they came from Europe, well, we will know there was a bit of hypocrisy.

Moving back to the Ukraine. President Biden has my full backing for steadily ramping up sanctions and stating that Putin cannot remain in power.

The news media and political folk are trying to downplay or soften his statements. Putin is a dictator and a murderer, understanding power. Cherie, an expert on such things can correct me, but, to confront a bully directly and stoutly is the only effective way forward.

    I doubt Europe knows a lot about police brutality during Canadian trucker protests.

    As a Canadian, thank you Storyteller for the support in getting the word out. I’m currently following the US Freedom convoy and they are doing a great job for you all too. They are in Harrisburg listening to informed speakers on the steps of the legislature. Please support them. Groups are being formed in every state. Grass roots is where it’s at. Many countries are facing a corrupt power grab and North America is part of it. The awesome thing to me is the growing grass roots solidarity between us, North and South. We need each other like never before. We need to stand up like never before.

    The UN did absolutely nothing to try and prevent the war in Ukraine, and seems more concerned about climate change than people dying in Ukraine.

    It’s an egghell time. Not even America could withstand a protracted nuclear war (we are out weaponed there by the balding bear), but smaller less resilient countries would be utterly vaporized in such an event.. we (and NATO) have to tread carefully which is most agonizing for Ukraine but also for all the rest of us. No one but Putin wants WWIII, and he is delusional about its outcome.

      Thank you for your perspective! I always appreciate when you bring wisdom to the table! 🤠🔥

    I think it is so interesting how the American Freedom Convoy is getting no air time on television. It’s all being overshadowed by a war we haven’t even had troops on the ground fighting. I feel bad for the people of the Ukraine, but I want to know why our own fight is being ignored.

  6. cheriewhite says:

    I hate to say it, but I think Biden is intimidated by Putin, and basically any other leader who has guts. I don’t trust Putin as far as I can throw him and he’s like any other politician, a power hungry tyrant. However, there’s still a lot of unanswered questions I have about this war. I pray for the innocent civilians in Ukraine, don’t get me wrong. But why are all the far Left, media, and Deep State players supporting Ukraine all of a sudden when, about 5-6 years ago, the news media was yammering about how corrupt the country was?

    First, they were labeling Ukraine to be a corrupt country, and now, all of a sudden, they’re all up in arms about Ukraine? Something about this just stinks. 💩

        😂🤣😂 Amen on that, Ben! Speaking of “the slap heard around the world,” you know that was real! You could see the shock all over Chris Rock and the rest of the audience!

        And Will Smith even thought the GI Jane crack was funny at first because you could see him laughing. But as soon as Jada gave Will a look, that’s when he walked up and slapped Chris! 💥💥💥

    Up in Wisconsin dey have a Shmelt Fry every Friday night somewhere in all the little towns and it is yummy to da tummy.
    As to the rest of it you are point on with all of your questions.

    I can’t comment on the Canada thing / I do not know details and have not followed… I have been staying away from most news.

    But I do agree… Putin needs to be taken out of power…

    He 100% is murderer, dictator, WAR CRIMINAL! 💯 percent!!

    It is ridiculous to me that the world sits by and allows all this to happen!

    Is this a question to anyone?? Innocent people being killed both Russian and Ukrainian

    And to destroy a country like that – it is soooo beyond disgusting!!

    There is no excuse for this barbaric mental Cold War immaturity!! Ugh that is so frustrating!

    It’s just disgusting – how he gonna rule after this? He’s done. Bye Felicia

    His people will never forgive him and neither will the world – he’s so done

    Who’s up next? China?


    It’s just insane 🤨

    What happen to the world omg … fricken 2020’s

    Just when I start having GOOD stuff … the world goes to shit 🤨

    Sigh 😞 the world is exhausting

    The world makes life soooo hard!

    Think of this new generation coming into this 😮☹️ you ready to see that emotional trauma that’s gonna come off of this? How stable they be mentally and those memories and experiences they have – gonna shape who they are.

    So yes I have zero problem with any of Biden’s statements

    I also DO appreciate not charging us directly into war immediately … to step cautiously and TRY to negotiate

    But I agree – Putin is War Criminal. Mass murderer.

    Russia does need regime change

    Hello?? Lol

    Putin is awful!!

    This is what I can’t take… clearly he is murderer and has zero regard for life…

    He IS a war criminal …

    Why is THE world still allowing?

    … also the news is giving opinions – I do not want to hear news people giving me their opinions / I don’t care – I don’t wanna know.

    I watch the news to know the facts not also hear someone’s opinion of the facts. Most news sucks because of that stupid crap – I will give news a chance but if they do that, I am done.

    But I do agree with Biden’s initial comments

    The trick is – how to handle so that least amount of lives lost, least amount of destruction and devastation? How does one do that in this situation?

    I just think of videos from school of World War II – when have to take someone like that down.

    Not easy job / not everyone gonna agree with choices… is a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

    When you say confront your bully … I think of my satan and I can not. Nope. I want nothing to do with and do not even want to be within vicinity of. Much less think about.

    I like life without him ❤️ so much more ❤️ it brightens daily without him so I’m good. Lol

    I lay low so he doesn’t constantly come after me.

    I just prefer not having him in my life at all.

    I did remove him from power. Lol

    You can’t even imagine how much more amazing life is without him ❤️ omg no comparison!!! Night and day!

    Because of one person 😮

    So yes Putin needs to be removed.

  9. dumbestblogger says:

    You make excellent points about smelt and Canadian Truckers. Regarding Putin being removed from power… that’s nice, but whatcha gonna do about it?

      1. dumbestblogger says:

        Probably not. I just want someone to explain a feasible plan for deposing him which doesn’t involve global thermonuclear war. I’ll be here all day.

          1. dumbestblogger says:

            Hmmm. So are you saying you would be with nuclear war if it meant getting rid of Putin?

          2. Benjamin says:

            I am referring to flatulence in jest. I am not in the know, but something tells me a show of force slows down a bullying. I am not ok with a nuclear showdown.

          3. dumbestblogger says:

            I agree with all of that. Like Teddy Roosevelt said, speak softly and carry a big stick. Unfortunately our President talks a lot, but has no stick. A good time for a show of force would have been a couple months ago when Biden said that a minor invasion would be ok.

    We have grown to take news as truth, and continue failing to fact checking…oh yeah…how can we….google has long replaced history archive. Media is a powerful tool and is controlled by powerful backing. Small independent media is considered somewhat conspiracy spreader. I have no words. I reply on God the only trusting and faithful source. Amen on reading the Word. It nourishes and cultivates.

      1. Cassa Bassa says:

        Amen! I was reading Judges on Gideon. There is comfort in being a small force in battle when God’s on our side.
