Information coming out of Canada regarding how the government and police force are handling the Freedom Convoy and its peaceful assembly is almost impossible to believe. The dictatorial and tyrannical behavior of a first world country that borders the United States just to our north is stripping rights from its citizens.
Not only has money from private citizens donating to the cause been frozen, emergency powers enacted and peaceful citizens arrested, but the police and government are working together. The official Twitter account of the Ottawa police reads more like speeches from tyrannical dictators.
“If you are involved in this protest, we will actively look to identify you and follow up with financial sanctions and criminal charges” one tweet read.

Another one reads “DEMONSTRATORS: You must leave. You must cease further unlawful activity and immediately remove your vehicle and/or property from all unlawful protest sites. Anyone within the unlawful protest site may be arrested.”

Ottawa’s interim police chief Steve Bell actually stated over the weekend in a press conference, “If you are involved in this protest, we will actively look to identify you and follow up with financial sanctions and criminal charges.”
“This investigation will go on for months to come,” he continued. “It has many, many different streams both from a federal financial level, from a provincial licensing level, from a Criminal Code level, from a municipal breach of court order, breach of court injunction level.”
Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House
Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.
Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.
Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.
National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.
In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.
Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
