I'm not sure if you've noticed but
it's in the news every day now.
Today? Saturday May 27, 2023 - CBC headline reads
Thinking the 'unthinkable' (translation: if you're not, you better start)
A preparation for dire consequences w/the ongoing indoctrination (narrative)
that conflict is imminent.
The message is loud - the message is clear.
We need to be actively preparing for war!
Shake it up, then watch the fruit fall from the tree.
Right, ok. The sordid story is actually decades old. I remember hearing Reagan and both Bush Presidents, even Clinton mumbling rhetoric around the Chinese threat, then more recently in 2016 when Trump was elected. The orange man turned up the volume to 11. Time to rawk!
Trump poured gasoline on the fire and his base have been subscribing to the scare ever since. Hook, line & sinker - welcome, to the con. In the first few months of his Presidency ranting & raving about CHINA! Day in and day out spewing the mantra on the evil in the east and how they threaten America's livelihoods by flooding our markets w/their 'cheap crap', while much of what was/is in his product line (clothes, suits, jewellery & accessories) are in fact made there.
Hypocrisy? Off the charts. My thinking? These politicians really don't care about foreign interference. If anything? They welcome it! It just pumps up the fear factor which plays nicely into their hands. It's the all too familiar Populist power-play. Shake it up, then watch the fruit fall from the tree.
Here in Canada it was never even a thing UNTIL Conservative Party watchdog Pierre Poilievre entered the picture, becoming the CPC leader and has been capitalizing on it ever since for political gain; running with the ball that Trump passed to him 5 years ago. Hey. Worked for the Donald right? Maybe it can work for ME too! Time to spin that wheel!
Ok kids ... so if you haven't yet received the memo, let me bring you up to speed ... we're f*cked AND it's all Justin's fault! CHINA! Now say it after me ... CHI-NA.
Soft on China? Soft in the head.
First it was the Huawei 5G security threat, then the frikkin' balloons, then the 'foreign interference' now from China in a full throttle campaign filling the news cycle daily while Poilievre sits back w/that adolescent grin and rubs his hands together. Perfect plan.
Nuclear war? It's inevitable. The threat is more real now then it's ever been. Strap in and strap ON! It's gonna be a rough ride folks and the media? All over it. America's top military minds are casually throwing around the likelihood of a nuclear exchange w/China or Russia in the next 2 years over Starbucks coffee and danish pastries in Pentagon boardrooms and we're complacently accepting the probability like it's just what we may need to do? Insane.
Yes AND Justin Trudeau? Oh he's IN on it! Guessing Xi Ginping is paying him off while 'socks' fudges the truth and desperately tries to squirm out of a public inquiry on foreign interference and the election meddling that threatens our 'democracy'. Interference that HE orchestrated.
False narratives are in abundance and calling anyone out on any one of them has become a violation of our freedom of speech. Fact checking misinformation has become a game of 'pin the tail on the donkey' because the accuracy of information is only relevant/applicable to one's beliefs, so it's like living in the wild west. Anything goes.
Fake news, fake science & fake money. Take your pick. You can be rest assured of this - it's a shaky showdown and our blackface PM is at the heart of the conspiracy.
You can bet yer bitcoin on it!
That said, I do believe that China is far from innocent and that there is quite likely ongoing interference in play, so yes ... some truth there BUT ... really? War? More nukes??
