A comment made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in 2013 may explain his true sentiments and his actions against the Freedom Convoy fighting back against vaccine mandates.
Trudeau actually admitted a “level of admiration for China” because of their “basic dictatorship.”
At a “ladies night” fundraiser in Toronto, the then-up-and-coming politician was asked about a nation and administration he admired most in the entire world. His answer? Communist China. “There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say we need to go green, we need to start, you know, investing in solar,” Justin Trudeau told the group of women.
“There is a flexibility that I know [Prime Minister] Stephen Harper must dream about: having a dictatorship where you can do whatever you wanted, that I find quite interesting.”
“There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime…having a dictatorship where you can do whatever you wanted, that I find quite interesting.”

Just Monday, Trudeau announced he was activating an emergency power in” an effort to suppress the Freedom Convoy, a movement originally created to protest vaccination mandates for truckers crossing the US border that has morphed into a broader protest against COVID restrictions” reports Tampa Free Press.
“The blockades are harming our economy and endangering public safety,” Trudeau said in a news conference. “We cannot and will not allow illegal and dangerous activities to continue.”
Tampa Free Press notes that “by invoking Canada’s Emergencies Act—which in 1988 replaced the War Measures Act—Trudeau can use federal law enforcement to assist provincial governments and expand its search and seizure of private goods that sustain the protest movement.”
“We are making these changes because we know that these (crowdfunding) platforms are being used to support illegal blockades and illegal activity which is damaging the Canadian economy,” said Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland, who used the word “terrorism” in her comments.
According to Reuters, premiers in Quebec, Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan all came out against Trudeau’s plan.

Fauci and wife’s net worth ‘skyrocketed’ to $12.6 million at the end of 2021
No wonder Dr. Anthony Fauci was in no rush for the global COVID-19 pandemic to come to an end; it was making him a very wealthy man. According to a report from the non-profit OpenTheBooks, a government spending watchdog group, Fauci and his wife’s networth grew by $5 million during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The combined wealth of the 81-year-old retiring director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and his bioethicist wife, Christine Grady, soared from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the end of 2021.”
“Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely,” the group’s CEO, Adam Andrzejewski, told Fox News Digital. “While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic.”
Specific chunks of money came in part to “major salary increases, cash awards and royalties, according to the report.”
“Fauci’s soaring net worth was based on career-end salary spiking, lucrative cash prizes awarded by non-profit organizations around the world and an ever-larger investment portfolio,” Andrzejewski said.
“He is the top-paid federal employee, his first-year golden parachute retirement pension is the largest in federal history, and he’s accepting $1 million prizes from foreign non-profits,” he added.
The New York Post reports:
Last year, Fauci raked in lucrative awards from nonprofits, including $1 million from the Dan David Foundation for “speaking truth to power” and “defending science” during the Trump Administration.
He kept $910,400 of that award, while roughly 10% went to scholarship winners, according to OpenTheBooks report.
His total compensation was $456,028 last year, up from the $434,312 he earned in 2020.
Overall, the couple’s investments also increased by more than $900,000 in 2021 while their portfolios — which included trust, retirement and college education accounts — jumped $800,000 in 2020, according to the analysis.
At the end of last year, Fauci’s account totaled $10.2 million and Grady’s had reached $2.4 million in investments.
