|This last Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canada’s history.
By setting this law in motion, the Canadian government essentially suspends its citizens’ civil liberties for 30 days.
According to the books, the act can only be invoked under an “urgent and critical situation” that “seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians.”
There are four categories of “emergency” that qualify for the law to be enacted: public welfare emergencies, public order emergencies, international emergencies, and war emergencies.
Try as I might, I just can’t seem to find “getting embarrassed by fed-up truckers” on that list.
But if we know one thing about big government, we know it never lets a crisis go to waste: whether we’re talking about an actual crisis or…you know… a bunch of trucks parked in the road.
Trudeau and his cronies also announced that they would be freezing the bank accounts of anyone who is connected to the Ottowa protests under “terrorist financing laws.” As of this week, financial institutions have begun locking down accounts of participants.
The Canadian government is also collecting “intelligence” on other means of exchange between protesters, like cash and cryptocurrency.
It’s almost as if centralized banking—and giving the government unchecked power over it—isn’t the best idea.
While my heart goes out to Canadians whose government is mistreating them, I don’t write about their situation out of pity. I do so because it’s a warning of what could very quickly happen in America.
If you’ve been getting these emails for a while, you’ve probably heard me reference the Creature from Jekyll Island. It’s a book that first showed many now-liberty-minded folks that big government doesn’t have our best interests at heart. It exposes the massive “creature” of the Federal Reserve, controlling every aspect of our lives by manipulating our money while enriching its controllers.
If you want a good look at how we got to where we are today—inflation off the charts, crazy government controls, and so-called free countries freezing “terrorist” bank accounts with the snap of a finger—I recommend you give that book a read.
As awesome as the original book is, it’s not the easiest text for kids to work their way through. But we can’t afford to wait until they’re adults to teach them the truth about big government: the government propaganda machine, education system, and the media are trying to get to young minds as we speak.
So, I started writing kid’s versions of the most important texts on liberty, economics, and civics… Including The Tuttle Twins and the Creature from Jekyll Island, one of our best-sellers.
