Revealed: Emails Between Mounties Show Them Gloating About Intimidating Protesters With Their "Jackboots"

The neocons allied with the neoliberals support this, and keep telling us it's no big deal.

It's Putin's invasion of Ukraine that we should really be Concerned about.

Not the fact that debanking and the use of government forces against the right has become common in both Canada and the US -- with the support of the Establishment pseudoright, who see the tactic as useful for keeping down their rivals on the right.

No, no, no -- we shouldn't worry about our own freedom or security. (Or borders.) Just the freedom and security (and borders) of a far off people.

In a group chat called "SOCIAL Musical Ride 2022," the RCMP members expressed their excitement at going to Ottawa to crack down on the protests there.


In one screenshot, a person by the name of Andrew Nixon writes: "Cheers crew! Here's to some sweet OT this weekend for our on call members. Don't kick all of them out until next weeks group gets our turn."

He writes in another message: "I'm signed up. Anyone not signed up jump on this. You're police officers first and ride members second. Don't coward away when we're needed. Even one shift can relieve an ops member for one night."

One person commented on the police accommodations, saying, "Nice downroom in Chateau Laurier."

Nixon adds at another point: "Time for the protestors to hear our jackboots on the ground."

He later backtracks when someone says this is a "kinder gentler RCMP," and says, "Okay we can give out free hubs and unicorn stickers."

At one point, the group talks about the moment a number of freedom protesters were trampled by mounted police officers. A member wrote: "Just watched that horse video - that is awesome!! We should practice that manoeuvre."

A woman who was reportedly injured when police on horseback rode through a crowd of protesters Friday evening has been identified as an Indigenous elder who was using a walking assist device and reportedly suffered a broken clavicle.

Kurt Sclichter (personal friend, once gave me a handjob with lots of Nail Action and some strategic Ballplay) explains to the Neocon/Neolib alliance why fascism in Canada is more important to Americans than an invasion in Ukraine.


Putin has sent has 100K+ troops into the fake separatist regions of Ukraine, and that's bad. But the morphing of Canada into a fascist state before our eyes is exponentially worse. A garbage elite on our border -- with the disgraceful support of 65% of American Democrats -- has declared war upon the working class, outraged that mere peasants are refusing to submit to their betters. Due process, free speech, not beating the brains out of old ladies with walkers -- these basics have gone by the wayside and our senile president, with his coterie of aspiring Castros -- though Castro was potent enough to impregnate Trudeau's trash mommy while our ruling class can't make it happen unless they are on a Zoom call -- have said nothing publicly. But privately, they are taking notes. They love the idea of criminalizing dissent -- look at the January 6th witch trials -- and they are taking notes.

And while Ukraine is bad, this is about us and our country and whether we will remain free or slide into a corporate-abetted social credit dictatorship.

I like Ukrainians. I deployed with them. I trained them in Ukraine. They like to party and they like to fight invaders. I get no problem giving them weapons to kill Russians. I hope the corpses of invaders are piled like cordwood as the Ukes channel the Finns when the Russian dictator-du-jour Stalin sent troops into reindeer land back in 1939. But the worst-case scenario if Putin takes over Ukraine -- he's actually only likely to secure some strategic chunks of it, but whatever -- is that Putin adds Ukraine back into the Russian sphere of influence where it has resided for centuries anyway. As obnoxious as it is, we can live with that.

But we cannot live under tyranny here. Canada is right next door, and this is a dress rehearsal for the kind of tyranny our own garbage ruling class would love to inflict here. Sadly, the majority of Canadians and their disgusting MPs seem to support treating the Anglo-Saxon legacy of human rights and democracy like Eric Swalwell treats his boxers after a chili cook-off. They have proven themselves unfit to be a free people and are happy to slide into serfdom.

I don't care what happens to a bunch of maple leaf sissies who prefer a thug-powered nanny state that suppresses dissent and scoffs at due process. I do care that this constitutes inspiration to Democrats here at home. And for that reason, on Kurt's "Things I Care About" chart, "Canadian Fascism" is number one with a bullet.

...

The rulers of Canada have more in common with the American establishment than with their own people, and America's establishment clearly prefers Trudeaueans to those knuckle-dragging Jesus gun people who sweat when they work. The idea that what happened in Canada cannot happen here -- particularly with the eager participation of corporate accomplices to create a Chi Com-esque social credit regime that punishes dissent by eliminating dissenters' ability to work and live within the economy -- is ludicrous. It not only can happen here but the Democrats actively want it to.

Not just the Democrats. A lot of "conservatives" have never actually been conservatives -- they have simply been defenders of the monied classes. They are corporatists. When corporations went woke, they decided that being woke was pretty cool. When corporations began censoring people and debanking them and isolating them from the financial system, they decided that a China-style social credit system was a nifty thing, because "private companies were doing it" (with the threatening encouragement of Democrat government officials, of course).

The neocons approve of this regime. They routinely cheerlead it, and patiently explain to the actual right Why You Really Deserve This, When You Think About It.

Taking the neocons and neoliberals together, you have 95% of all the monied interests and government power in the country allied and, to one extent or another, in favor of using "private business power" (again, threateningly encouraged by Democrat government officials) to punish, silence, isolate, and bankrupt any dissenters from The Regime.

Kurt lists some reasons why he doesn't think that the Canadian Example is likely to work on American soil. He thinks it's possible, but not likely -- "400 million guns" being one reason.

But Canada has a lot of guns too.

I think it's more likely than he allows.

Because a lot of the pseudoright is in favor of all of this.

Which parts of corporate fascism have the corporate neocons opposed? None. They oppose none of them. In fact, they defend them, and they pretend with all of their might that the Democrats are not routinely commanding the corporations to discriminate against the right.

For example, National Review "condemned" Spotify's censorship of Joe Rogan here.

You might say, "Well that's good, isn't it? What's the problem?"

The problem is this: National Review knew full well -- but choose to deliberately hide from its readers -- that Spotify took this censorship action at least in partial compliance with the White House's command that Spotify must "do more" than the censorship it had already imposed on Rogan (caveats and disclaimers):

It would have been natural for National Review to also slam the White House for bullying a private corporation into censorship.

But they did not not. And they knew full well of the White House's umpteenth demand for censorship; Psaki's demand was well-publicized and roundly criticized... everywhere except National Review.

So: Why did National Review hide this fact? Why didn't they criticize the White House for doing that which they insist that conservatives must not do, which is to interfere with the censorship decisions of an allegedly private corporation?

For the same reason Barack Obama refused to condemn Iran for its bombing campaigns against American troops and ships when he was involved in the "nuclear deal" with them: Once you're in bed with someone, you cannot condemn them freely, as it draws attention to the fact that you're in bed with them in the first place.

National Review's whole argument for not forcing monopolies to follow strict rules of fairness and viewpoint-neutrality is that they claim "the government should not impose rules on private companies."

Thus, the cannot admit that the Democrats are already imposing rules on private companies, and have been for years and years, demanding they censor Alex Jones, and then Milo Yiannopolis, and then anyone doubting the effectiveness of masks or the vaccines, and anyone circulating the 100% true lab leak theory, and then Joe Rogan.

It's recently been revealed that the CDC was "guiding" FaceBook's "messaging policy" on Covid.

But we can't have the government dictating the speech of Muh Private Monopolies, huh?


National Review cannot ever acknowledge that in fact the government is already dictating the censorship policies of tech monopolies, and using the threat of breaking up these monopolies if they don't play ball, because that would of course completely destroy their "we must not use government power to dictate censorship policies" rationale.

Their real rationale? Well, they just happen to be sponsored/supported by FaceBook, Google, and AEI (which is itself paid by FaceBook and Google).

And it just so happens that National Review is absolutely dedicated, in turn, to protecting their benefactors from any interference from the right on their censorship policies, or any threat to their monopoly status.

If you don't believe me, see if you can get anyone from National Review to write, in the pages of National Review, about Elizabeth Warren's and Joe Biden's and Jen Psaki's and dozens of other Democrat congressmen's and Administration personnel routinely making demands on tech monopolies to "do better" in suppressing information they don't like.*

They won't. They can't.

It would undermine the point they're being.. um, pecuniarally encouraged to make.

Now, knowing that the establishment pseudoright is essentially the paid rentboys for the most powerful corporations in the world -- corporations firmly on the extreme left, and in favor of maximum social control -- how convinced are you that It Can't Happen Here?

Putting it tangible terms: If it were up to Ramesh Ponuru, Charlie "3-Wives" Sykes, Bill Kristol and David Frum to decide whether or not you could be debanked and barred from every owning or renting property -- what do you imagine the vote would be?


* It occurs to me that the same people claiming that if ordinary citizens with no positions in government just "care" enough about Ukraine that will have some positive, tangible deterrent effect on Putin are the same people pretending that Elizabeth Warren, who sits on the Banking and Finance Committee, does not influence monopolies' censorship decisions when she orders them to censor people.

Monopolies are in a perilous position, and they know it. Democrats are exploiting that tenuous position to make monopolies into illegal vessels of Democrat government power, and Republicans are enabling this by 1, allowing monopolies to persist as monopolies, and 2, not setting up rules about what can and cannot be censored for these monopolies, which would limit Democrats' ability to illegally use them as extensions of state power.

85 The mindset of supporters of this tyrannical crushing of Canadian liberty and their own equivalent to the bill of rights is pretty messed up.

One I read compared taking the shot to blacking out your curtains from bombing in Blitz-era London.

How do you get to that place mentally? They basically start from the position that we're all going to die if we don't get the shot, and the shot protects everyone, but only if everyone gets it.

Now, there's a host of things wrong with that -- every single clause in that argument is the opposite of truth -- but they cling to it all because its all been built up over the last two years by sources they trust (and more importantly, opposed by people they hate).

Of course. That's the point of Critical Theory. CT in general is a framework for interpreting the world and pushing on everything non-compliant to change it into becoming compliant. Once you accept CT or any of its variants (CRT being the big one), this will happen to you. It becomes the only mechanism of interpretation.

As someone with an actual science degree (or at least one with science in the title), allow me to explain. The absolute, fundamental, bedrock principle of "science" is "Do As We Say, Bitches". Once you understand that, it all makes sense.

Also, word on the street is that Putin will offer lucrative jobs to the children of Biden, Pelosi, Romney, et al, so they should very soon be coming out with a statement that Ukraine was dressed like a whore and had it coming.

170 I said this on the last thread, but let me expand.

My thinking is that Putin is rebuilding the empire so he has a chance against China. Right now, Russia is a shell of a country - oil, gas, and minerals, and not a lot else.

He is not protecting himself from EU wokeness, and certainly not concerned about expatriated ethnic Russians who ended up on the wrong side of the border. He does not give a shit about corruption in Ukraine except that he wants that action inside the tent.

His concern is mass - population, gdp, technology, markets, etc. that can be a legitimate threat to China. Otherwise he will have allowed russia to become the vassal state.

Interesting hypothesis. Russia is a MASSIVE amount of land, rich in resources, but relatively poor in population (around 1/2 the people of the U.S., I think). How strongly guarded is the Russian frontier bordering China? Is China making incursions into Russian territory for their resources? What's stopping them?

It could very well be that Putin is simply trying to strengthen Russia's position against Chinese aggression in the future.

The former prime ministers of Italy and Finland resigned from the boards of two Russian companies on Thursday following Vladimir Putin's full-scale military invasion of Ukraine."

From the AP, three weeks ago (4 Feb 2022):

"German ex-leader Schroeder nominated as director at Gazprom

Russian state-owned gas company Gazprom says German ex-Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has been nominated to join its board of directors"

232 Interesting hypothesis. Russia is a MASSIVE amount of land, rich in resources, but relatively poor in population (around 1/2 the people of the U.S., I think). How strongly guarded is the Russian frontier bordering China? Is China making incursions into Russian territory for their resources? What's stopping them?

It could very well be that Putin is simply trying to strengthen Russia's position against Chinese aggression in the future.

I pretty much agree with this. The only caveat is "we" set their ass up. Well, Bill Clinton convinced them to give up their nukes in exchange for security guarantees. If they had nukes, it would have made it very risky indeed to invade them for Blad Puddin'. Of course, the obvious rejoinder is: "You fcuked up. You trusted us."

So, yeah the Ukraine probably has a different opinion of the US saying Not our fight. Like: You Bastards, We Trusted You!!!!!!

That's because while some of us were watching what was really going on in the world, others were being told by their mentors and peers that the most important thing in the world was gay rights, lesbian rights, trans rights, and the entire spectrum of intersectionalism promoted and required by the Democrat Nazi Party who just happen to control and keep happy the Union that represents those mentors the teachers. We were flanked and by the time we realized how bad it was, it was all over.

We thought we had time to correct this twisted thinking but that too was not true. We barely may have an election that is real but then we may never have had one for years. With the melding of corporate and government we've fallen into the pit we fought many times to stay out of. And now we're fully in it and the slope out is very steep.

Sociopaths do a good job at worming into top jobs in a civilization but they simply don't get loyalty, truth, etc. which ultimately leads to their fall. Simple societies rely on mutual trust (like the old noblisse oblige) and mutual duties. Sociopaths see no duties important to constrain themselves and trust no one. So, you get someone like Bill Gates who arguably stole his software, peddled it to IBM because his father was an exec, and believed himself to be the new Oracle of Delphi and now the philanthropist friend of Epstein who deals out poisonous doses in the Third World at the very least.

Interesting hypothesis. Russia is a MASSIVE amount of land, rich in resources, but relatively poor in population (around 1/2 the people of the U.S., I think). How strongly guarded is the Russian frontier bordering China? Is China making incursions into Russian territory for their resources? What's stopping them?

It could very well be that Putin is simply trying to strengthen Russia's position against Chinese aggression in the future.

I see this all as a mirror of WWII, pre barbarosa. Russia and China are preparing for the main battle. The main problem for putin is that China has already outflanked him by having so much influence in Europe. By taking over some key parts, he puts an end to that expanding to his border.

367 Which emphasizes the point I have made previously that, despite low ratings (whatever that might mean), the MFM is still a lot more powerful than we like to believe it is.

It's not the news. Aside from possibly Trump (and I'm not really sure he's an exception), conservatives are as locked into Cold War thinking, the maintenance and even expansion of NATO up to the borders of Russia or its satellites, as any Democrat. Hell listen to the crazy shit the Horde has to say about this. One prominent warmonger was comparing Putin to Hitler and Stalin just this morning. Others are pledging their themselves to kill and die for Poland. Americans have no idea what's in the national interest anymore. We have no rational foreign policy. Haven't for 2 decades. It ain't just the current administration.

Coming around to this idea.


When I was a kid, this is how it worked. Cops drove their car to the station, put on the uniform, checked out their duty weapon, and went to work in their duty car. Later, they brought the car back, changed, checked their weapon, and took their own car back home. They simply were not "Johnny Law" 24/7.

And at least where I lived, they had to reside in the precinct they policed. There was no notion of "getting into a fight with an off duty cop". You might get into an altercation with somebody that was a cop - but they weren't acting as a cop while out of uniform.

This shit all started going downhill with take-home cars.

383 Interest rates affect stocks 2 ways.

1 is an alternative investment. If a CD pays 5% with no risk, you're more likely to take that option vs investing in riskier stocks. If a CD pays 1.15% like it does now, you'll be more likely to invest in stocks. So with every little bit of movement up or down, stocks become more or less attractive.

2. The cost of borrowing for companies. Lower rates = less cost = more profit. More profit is good for stock prices. And the reverse. Higher rates = more cost = less profit.

And that's why 98% of the shit on Fox Biz or CNBC is irrelevant. It's all about the interest rates.

Yes they would. It is a particular curse that companies going on the downslide buy large ornamental hqs.

Google is basically AdSense and a bunch of money losing apps, etc. to feed the AdSense advertising monster. Apparently the market for that is shrinking with Apple carving out Fakebook and Google planning to do the same with Android. That is a big reason why Fakebook is worth half of what it was.

But, AdSense is one successful lawsuit away from destroying the company if you remember the lawsuits ending the Yellow Pages monopoly that made Bell mint.

406 I said this on the last thread, but let me expand.

My thinking is that Putin is rebuilding the empire so he has a chance against China. Right now, Russia is a shell of a country - oil, gas, and minerals, and not a lot else.

He is not protecting himself from EU wokeness, and certainly not concerned about expatriated ethnic Russians who ended up on the wrong side of the border. He does not give a shit about corruption in Ukraine except that he wants that action inside the tent.

His concern is mass - population, gdp, technology, markets, etc. that can be a legitimate threat to China. Otherwise he will have allowed russia to become the vassal state.

That is to say, that like social justice, the modifier social means the thing modified isn't what it used to be.

Socialization is more important than reality in the current culture, because that is how they are going to control everyone. Weaponized marketing basically. Call if mass formation psychosis if you like but if you get enough people to say a thing is true, often even if they don't believe it, then that thing culturally true. and Cultural truths can't be easily broken. See for example the concept of Taboo. Because if you break the Taboo, you are unpersoned.

With all the other twisted things the US Gov't been doing, it's a lot harder to defend those actions in the face of someone who's actually played it pretty straight all these years. Putin's made no bones about what he wants to do and he has the backing of the Russian people. And he sees that he has a greater degree of moral authority than the US does at this moment in time.

Technically the US just poisoned the world and their may be worse coming if we can't get these insane clowns in DC to stop and reflect on the real science and data for just one minute.

Ukraine is the 4th largest exporter in the world, of grain.

It's not empty... it also exports steel. It has 45 million citizens, almost 1/3 the population of Russia.

It also sits on, and controls, Pipeline routes from Russia, to the rest of Europe... taking their cut as oil and gas flows.

I am puzzled by that myself. Look at the cast of characters that the left has built up, promoted, given shows, and piled money on.

How many of them could possibly have gotten into this position without the machine putting them there?

This is why I have been saying that the deep state and the Democrats are basically a neo mafia, I've been saying it years now. This is no different than Joey "the gut" Cervanno getting a no-work job as a union delegate because he's connected.

Except Mafia guys had to be earners, they couldn't just walk in and take a position. They had to fork up the cash to the bosses or they were out. With the Democrats, the only earning they have to do is promote the narrative with a few tweets a day and crappy shows.

With all the other twisted things the US Gov't been doing, it's a lot harder to defend those actions in the face of someone who's actually played it pretty straight all these years. Putin's made no bones about what he wants to do and he has the backing of the Russian people. And he sees that he has a greater degree of moral authority than the US does at this moment in time.

Technically the US just poisoned the world and their may be worse coming if we can't get these insane clowns in DC to stop and reflect on the real science and data for just one minute.

460 In Kentucky, for example, there is a law against carrying inside a bar. Fair enough. Cops on lunch carry proudly inside any bar-restaurant, however. I've seen them make a point of "escorting" various Louisville City Council around for lunch.

In all fairness, if twelve people are at the bar, at least three are carrying concealed as well. And cops are shitty shots anyway, but it's the principle of the matter.

So, all those banks and insurance companies that shut down accounts and cut off insurance coverage...oooopsie. That's going to be expensive...and potentially criminal. Trudeau won't run cover for them. He got what he wanted...he saved face by doing a back door deal with the House of Commons. This was planned. He, basically went in and worked a deal where he got them to vote in his favor and telling them he would remove the enactment from the table in a few days.

No one told the banks...no one told the insurance companies...and as a result, they violated the law in cutting off accounts.

Nope. All men are corruptible - including that sheriff. They're just men, not angels. But I can trust my gun to do exactly what I make it do.

I'd avoid that town. In my day to day work - I do avoid those towns. The states of New York, New Jersey, and such can't pay me enough to work there, and their various entities have tried. No thank you.

525 This paragraph by Ace is just *chef's kiss*:

"Monopolies are in a perilous position, and they know it. Democrats are exploiting that tenuous position to make monopolies into illegal vessels of Democrat government power, and Republicans are enabling this by 1, allowing monopolies to persist as monopolies, and 2, not setting up rules about what can and cannot be censored for these monopolies, which would limit Democrats' ability to illegally use them as extensions of state power."

That sums up the main reason Democrats have completely abandoned their historical position opposing large corporate monopolies. (The other is how the tech corps have become the personal piggy banks of Dem party officials, both through donations and as a revolving door - note how many Dems get comfortable gigs as tech executives.) The selling out of the conservative movement to the libertarian fantasy was a huge mistake. It's our task to put blind corporatism back in proper perspective.

You seem like a decent guy, trying his best to do a very difficult thing, being a cop in a broken big city.
My cousin was a cop for a long time; a patrolman for years, then a sergeant patrolman, then the last 15 years a detective sergeant before he retired. He was a cop for over 35 years. He told me a lot of shit that cops have to put up with, and it is a hard job. I respect and admire anyone who can do it without losing their marbles.
But you may be at a point where you have to decide; the people who command your department may someday soon order you to do something that is really wrong. Not just bad police work (you've seen that), but things you KNOW are wrong. I wouldn't want to be in your shoes; I mean that sincerely.
I know you are close to getting out. Beware, it may not be soon enough for the ugly things they may tell you to do.
I'm sure you have thought these thoughts, but it looks obvious to me, just a simple citizen civilian. I know you took a lot of shit the other day, and that was just wrong.
Be careful, and watch your six o'clock.

People are the underlying value of Money (wealth), not a gold standard, nothing else. People.

People are demand. People are production. No people wealth.

Money = human labor/service time.

If you are in debt, you literally volunteered your time to someone else's interest.

So the US debt, in that context, should be seen as an involuntary binding of human labor to someone else's interest. Literally slavery.

Yeah, its not really clear what happened that day and the Earps were probably abusing their power.

Yeah he was consultant on a lot of movies, but I mean... like nearly everyone in the west he was prone to wild rewrites of events and amazing boasting, invention, and just flights of fancy. And a consultant for Hollywood back then was basically just a buddy that got paid, they never give the guys much heed.

The film "Sunset" is based vaguely on Earp's relationship to Tom Mix which was a real thing. But that didn't make Tom Mix movies any more realistic or believable.

Most of the immigrants are not from the Anglosphere. They don't treasure the rights that we treasure. They sold their souls for mammon.
