The Coup d’Etat

 

It was said that President Allende committed suicide.

However, on May 31, 2011, Chile’s state television station reported that a top-secret military account of Allende’s death had been discovered in the home of a former military justice official. The 300-page document was only found when the house was destroyed in the 2010 Chilean earthquake. After reviewing the report, two forensic experts told TVN “that they are inclined to conclude that Allende was assassinated.”[21]

Benjamin Franklin Saw America’s Bane

 

It is possible to glean useful foresight in which to see the future; instead of merely ‘taking life as it comes’ as most people do.

 

Benjamin Franklin did. He did not obey the spirit of his times (zeitgeist)

Ben told us:

“we may hope the luxury of a few merchants on the Seacoast will not be the Ruin of America”

The October Crisis for a New Generation

A beautiful day visits a Montreal street. Or possibly your street… Yet this is the weather. On the street -soldiers. Your freedom of movement has been curtailed. The soldiers might speak your language; or they might not. For how long? ‘One does not yet know.’

This was the October (FLQ) Crisis of 1970.

Operation Maple Response (‘Jade Helm North’)

Prelude to War Measures (a police state) in Canada?

Possible Objective: the imposition of Department of Homeland Security policy upon Canada.

What are the main differences between the use of the War Measures Act (1970) and Bill C-51 (2015)?

Whereas the War Measures Act imposed in wake of the October Crisis were temporary, changes following Maple Response are most likely to see the suspension of Civil Liberties of Canadians – in a far longer lasted way.

We are more likely to see the use this time around of a ‘Continual Emergency State.’

In other words, a Continual Emergency State using ‘Emergency Management‘ and ‘Green Laws‘ for the long term removal of rights we know in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, found in the Constitution Act of 1982.

Warning: Once these laws are on the books, it will become very difficult to undo this . These new conditions will become the NEW Normal.

One got a taste of this with the way police treated Canadian civilians in Toronto during the 2010 G7/G20 Summit; where most of the center of Toronto was placed on lock-down.

These laws are not about safety and security for the Canadian public alone. These measures, some Canadian lawyers and MPs have postured -are really about tax shakedowns.

Not of habitual criminals – but on and with members of the Canadian Middle Class.

The Magna Carta: Disregarded Waste Paper of the Anglo-West

The Magna Carta Libertatum (Latin for “the Great Charter of the Liberties“), is a charter agreed by King John of England at Runnymead , near Windsor, on 15 June 1215.

The Magna Carta was demanded so that any king that came along could not just make up laws

at a whim (arbitrary law).

For many in the Anglo-West who have no personal experience or memory of living under oppression the hard earned rights which were put to paper in the Magna Carta have long been taken for granted.

Yet in recent years we have witnessed this prize document treated like a page torn from an unvalued and unappreciated old book. This has been the relationship of many in government towards the Magna Carta.

Much of this indifference comes from measuring oneself by oneself ; or issues in the world by an Anglo country which has long had a Magna Carta heritage. This is a subjective calculation which says I feel fine; things must be alright. Yet these liberties are not some cheap thing ;were arrived at over time and found at a huge cost; whether one is aware of this or not.

In recent years, much to the result of post-modernism, there has been a clearly-displayed indifferent attitude by many citizens and residents in the Anglo-West concerning this precious document. It is like eating the good fruit each day but not caring about where they good fruit came from; nor of who toiled to grow that that fruit; or how that vineyard was originally planted.

 

The rights and liberties we address here are not by accident. For they were purchased for us ‘by the blood and pain of many men and women in earlier generations.’

There is a subtle and often not so subtle removal and suspension of our civil liberties and human rights.

Is this important to you?

If yes…What are you doing to respond to this?

 

We tell the story of Magna Carta, foundation of our rights: freedom’s unlikely origins, remarkable triumphs and modern challenges.

Careful what you Say: Forbidden Film

 

 

‘Think that if the one is charged or arrested … then that man or woman must be guilty of something’?

‘Think again…’

 

‘It was a gray world. We could laugh. Yet we could not speak too loudly.’

 

The film Das Leben der Anderen (‘The Lives of Others’) was first released in 2006.

 

Many former East Germans were stunned by the factual accuracy of the film’s set and atmosphere, accurately portraying a state merged with West Germany and ceased to exist 16 years prior to the release. The film’s authenticity was considered notable, given that the director grew up outside of East Germany and was only sixteen when the Berlin Wall fell.

A short clip of this film:

 

In our present time the line between corporation and government has nearly vanished. They want to hear what you are saying. Yes, they want to know everything.

‘So make sure you speak up so your new kitchen appliances can hear you.’

 

One word: ‘What has been – shall be again

 

To a stained people of this world,  after you view this film, you will see a way to find a Restore Point button for your life.’

 

‘This Restore Point was Crucified for you.’

“You will seek Me and you will find Me when you have sought me with all your heart”

Contemplating Takwâkin ᑕᑳᐧᑭᐣ

(It is Autumn)

“I try to keep the promise. The breeze was warm; yet a reduced warmth from what we had known just a month ago. The breeze rushed past us; lifting some leaves which swirled around us.”

https://i1.wp.com/digipraim.com/data_images/out/3/588338-bright-yellow-autumn-forest.jpg

 

A young girl parts the trees.  Several leaves fall.

Alssome-Sokanon (meaning ‘Independent Rain’)

This name is not in italics. It is not a foreign name. Alssome emerges from the trees and wades through the brown, red and yellow leaves which rustle in their dryness.

“Astam”

“nôsisim” (‘great- grandaughter’) – “come on.”

Alssome-Sokanon lifts some leaves from off the ground, enjoying their sounds and the colours.

She then stands up, turns, and asks “Was it always this way?”

Sorry nôsisim… what did you say”?

âniski-ohtâwîmâw (‘Great-Grandfather’) is aged and thus it is hard for him to hear; moreover, the wind is blowing.

“Moshom” (grandpa) ,  she asks her Mooshom.

“Was it always this way…?”

When I was younger you mean? he replies.

“Yes”.

“Well yes, it was very different then.”

There have been many changes since the Old Dominion.

Well, I can remember my Nokhum telling me about the ‘removal’. Actually, there were … ‘several’ removals.

You mean the Res School time?

There was that yes. But there were more.

The ‘first’ removal happened “under the sign of a cross.”  It was a misuse of that symbol of course. Yet that’s what they used when they came to take away our people.

We had to look within ourselves to understand who to trust.

We learned that their words did not match their actions.

And the “Second” mooshom?

The second removal happened – ‘without a cross’.

Yet both times they said they were ‘helping’ us.

(the wind picks up)

And what about the ‘WestCorp Removal’?

Ah yes. I did mention that refer to that once by the lake.

No. That one was different.

That removal took the mihkokwayawêw . Those people would not agree to the masinihcikewin ᒪᓯᓂᐦᒋᑫᐃᐧᐣ which began in the CondoCities.

This ‘taking’ took time. They used what were called LRTs. They used the big sport buildings to hold the “trouble makers”

Were they troublemakers?

Not really; they just wouldn’t go with the game.

 

The hearts of the CEOs – ‘were cold.’

The people were relocated into the big CondoCities.

Big towers where the people were watched all the time.

You mentioned on our walk last year a “peopletag”?

“What was that”?

Child. This is a painful memory. Mooshom winses; then there was a distant look in his eyes.

okimâskwêsis ( ᐅᑭᒫᐢᑫᐧᓯᐢ chief’s princess)… it was an implant which the people. No. The opamihiwew ᐅᐸᒥᐦᐃᐁᐧᐤ subjects) of WestCorp had to have inside them.

“For people to stay safe”??  “That’s what they told them, eh heh”

“It was to watch the people.”

They began to say to one another “He is “moyeyimaw ( ᒧᔦᔨᒪᐤ ).” (‘People are aware of him. He is under suspicion’)

“They turned on each other. They began to watch each other.”How long ago did I speak of this… what a mawinêhotowin ᒪᐃᐧᓀᐦᐅᑐᐃᐧᐣ challenge. The people were in kaskitipiskanohk (ᑲᐢᑭᑎᐱᐢᑲᓄᕁ  in deep darkness)

Who?

Mainly the people in the south.

The ayisiyinowak and the otayamihâwak in the north said no to these ways.

The iyinisiw ᐃᔨᓂᓯᐤ (wise ones) knew that the simâkanis of the old Dominion had tried to do the same thing with the Inuit. I think it was in the 1930s up there…

(The sound of the browning leaves crunching beneath their feet)

I remember myself pondering Hmmm. Yes. How did it come to this…?”

How did this all come?

The southerners –  were sleepwalking.

They traded their tipêyimisowin ᑎᐯᔨᒥᓱᐃᐧᐣ NI liberty, freedom; birthright – for a bowl of kîkisêpâ-mîciwin ᑮᑭᓭᐹ ᒦᒋᐃᐧᐣ (porridge).

“?”

So what did those Inuit do?

They said “no”.

“And the southerners”?

They did not understand.

Did not understand? Weren’t they all educated? I thought they all graduated from the unis? we learned.

They they went there.

“But they forgot who they were”

They did not remember where they had been.

They became “a people of no past and no future.’

Canada…  It was a land of beautiful forests. Green; golden. Well, the forests are returning now.

The picture of the universe is already inside your heart. This picture is mirrored in those who have walked rightly. Observe them. Learn from them.

You must be spiritually discerning. “Don’t do ten times. Think ten times – but do once.”
