RATH: Tamara Lich is a political prisoner once again
UPDATED: June 29, 2022 at 10:45 p.m
UPDATED: June 29, 2022 at 6:10 p.m. Here is a synopsis of the arrest of Tamara Lich by “Police on Guard for Thee”. In summary, the arrest of the Freedom Award winning activist is highly unusual from a policing standpoint and appears to be politically motivated.
Good morning readers. As you are aware, Tamara Lich, winner of the George Jonas Freedom Award and soon to be Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, is again being held behind bars for….wait for it…..posing for a photo at her award ceremony with another freedom activist, Professor Tom Marrazzo who also attended her award ceremony.
Can you believe that? Being photographed with someone could land you back in jail on your original charge of “mischief”? By the way, her fellow activist Pat King has been held behind bars with no bail since February on a similar charge of “mischief”.
Read the following op-ed from the Western Standard that gives more details about this ignominious behaviour on the part of the Liberal Turvertian Government and I will have more comments to follow:
Jeffrey R.W. Rath is a constitutional lawyer who serves as Vice President General Counsel to the Alberta Prosperity Project.
Without a single nod to irony, in preparation for Canada Day, Trudeau-supporting police officers are threatening “zero-tolerance” for any protesters who might mar the planned “celebration” in Ottawa.
Does anyone else remember when Canada Day used to be a day when we celebrated the Canadian Charter of Rights and the freedoms that were the bedrock foundation of our prosperity? Does anyone else remember the day when a Canadian flag didn’t require a trigger warning for the delicate souls who now claim it to be a symbol of “extremism”?
Apparently, Canada Day is now a day when anyone contemplating acts of free speech or free assembly are being threatened by civic officials and police spokespeople. Hopefully no one is jailed for attempting to remind their fellow citizens that the Constitution of Canada rests on “the supremacy of God and the rule of law.”
In the aftermath of Tamara Lich’s arrest on a Canada-wide warrant for allegedly breaching bail conditions, Tamara’s mother, Bonnie McBurney, still has no idea what Tamara is alleged to have done to land her back in the Trudeau hoosegow. Meanwhile, Trudeau continues to yuk it up over whose “plane” is bigger with Boris Johnson and whose “pecs” are peckier while drinking champagne and eating caviar and canapes with his fellow WEF/G7 potentates at a “fairy tale castle” in Bavaria.
The last time Tamara was arrested and carted across the country to have her bail revoked, Trudeau’s friendly neighborhood prosecutor was rebuked by Ontario Superior Court Justice Kevin Phillips who said, “The courts are not a thought police. We seek only to control conduct to the extent that certain behaviour will violate or is likely to lead to violation of the law.”
It’s apparent that Trudeau’s prosecutors haven’t received the message and will not give up on their continued crusade to make Tamara Lich’s life as miserable as possible to satisfy the braying Twitter mob who continue to defame the George Jonas Freedom Award winner as a “racist,” “right-wing extremist.”
If the rumours are true and Tamara is being jailed and hauled across the country in leg irons because she had the nerve to pose for a photo with Tom Marrazzo at an event the court specifically allowed her to attend, it is unlikely the cruel and degrading arrest of Ms. Lich over the weekend will result in the revocation of her bail let alone sustaining the additional charge of breach of recognizance.
Posing for a picture at an event attended by Lich with the court’s blessing, with many of your lawyers present, is not a violation of the law or “likely to lead to a violation of the law” even if the person in the photo with you is on Justin Trudeau’s “Really, Really, Really Naughty” list.
It is unfortunate that it is highly unlikely that this recent, apparent overreach by prosecutors will not result in a justice citing the prosecutors for abuse of process and contempt of court. In the opinion of many Canadians, it is time for the courts to begin the process of reconciliation with Canadians, whose rights have been sorely abused, by starting to rein in abuses of power by members of Canada’s administrative state who see themselves as our overlords.
On a related note, Bonny McBurney confirmed to me this morning that the rumours about Tamara Lich being in the process of being nominated for The Nobel Peace Prize are, in fact, true.
Canadians need to internalize the degree of shame and national embarrassment they should all feel when Members of The European Parliament are nominating a Canadian political prisoner for The Nobel Peace Prize for courageously standing up to the tyranny of the authoritarian junta being presided over by Justin Trudeau. As someone recently said, “it is really sad that Trudeau now has Canada being referred to internationally as “Bananada.”
Bonny McBurney told this writer that her biggest concern is that Tamara’s arrest is part of the ongoing campaign by Trudeau and his minions to incite peaceful protesters to riot. They previously engaged in name-calling in the lead up to the Emergencies Act declaration, which Trudeau and his minions falsely claimed was invoked at the request of the RCMP and Ottawa Police.
On behalf of Tamara and herself, Mrs. McBurney urged everyone protesting Trudeau’s ongoing abuses of power to remain calm and peaceful.
“We are so grateful for everyone’s support. Everyone needs to remember that Tamara is a lot stronger than [Trudeau] is. Everyone needs to stay calm and remember that the only thing that Tamara wants is for everyone to remain peaceful. We can not let them bait us into behaving badly so that they can use this as a further excuse to lock people up or take away more people’s rights.”
Greencrow comments: The world is watching, folks as Canada lurches from bad to worse…forgetting even that we once were one of the free-est countries in the world. Now we have, not our national leader, but the mother of Tamara urging Canadians to remain calm and peaceful–so as not to provide an excuse for the psychopaths to indulge in even worse lawlessness.
Tamara wants us to remain calm–while perhaps some military and uncorrupted police go into action to arrest the criminal cabal that has taken our nation hostage and is trying to impose a ‘basic Chinese-style dictatorship’. We can only hope and pray this will happen. I will be updating this post later on in the day. This is a fast moving news story. As WB Yeats once said:
“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is lost
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are filled with passionate intensity.”
CBC is reporting that the circle is closing in on RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki vis a vis her attempt to interfere into the Nova Scotia Mass Murder investigation back in 2020.
It is important for readers to remember that the CBC is the Turvert’s personal Media outlet now and only reports things he plants in it. In this case, he and his fellow criminal cabalists in the PMO are setting Lucki up to “Take the Fall” for Trudeau. Anyone capable of rational thought would know that Lucki would never have made the comments to the Nova Scotia investigation that she did without being expressly ordered to by Trudeau. She was mouthing his words. We all know that.
