Police Move on COVID-19 Trucker Protesters After Arresting Leaders:
Canadian police on Friday started arresting protesters as part of an operation to end a three-week blockade of Ottawa by hundreds of truck drivers that crippled the capital and prompted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to assume emergency powers.
Live television footage showed police making at least seven arrests, without using any force.
Police arrested organizers Tamara Lich and Chris Barber around Parliament Hill Thursday but did not immediately move in force on the demonstrators.
"Some protesters are surrendering and are being arrested. We ask protesters to remain peaceful and lawful," the Ottawa police said in a tweet.
The drivers, joined by thousands of demonstrators and some 400 vehicles, turned the streets around Parliament into a noisy party zone since first arriving on Jan. 28, in what has become one of the worst crises to hit Trudeau since he took power in 2015.
Police negotiated with the protesters, trying to persuade them to go home, interim Ottawa Police Chief Steve Bell said Thursday. “We want this demonstration to end peacefully,” he said, but added: “If they do not peacefully leave, we have plans.”
Many of the truckers in the self-styled Freedom Convoy appeared unmoved by days of warnings from police and the government that they were risking arrest and could see their rigs seized and bank accounts frozen.
“I’m prepared to sit on my ass and watch them hit me with pepper spray,” said one of their leaders, Pat King. As for the trucks parked bumper-to-bumper, he said: “There’s no tow trucks in Canada that will touch them.”
King later told truckers to lock their doors.
Amid the rising tensions, truckers outside Parliament blared their horns in defiance of a court injunction against honking, issued for the benefit of neighborhood residents.
Ottawa represented the movement’s last stronghold after weeks of demonstrations and blockades that shut down border crossings into the U.S., inflicted economic damage on both countries and created a political crisis for Trudeau.
The protests have shaken Canada’s reputation for civility and rule-following and inspired similar convoys in France, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
“It’s high time that these illegal and dangerous activities stop,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared in Parliament, not far from where the more than 300 trucks were parked.
“They are a threat to our economy and our relationship with trading partners,” he said. “They are a threat to public safety.”
Ottawa police began locking down a wide swath of the downtown area, allowing in only those who live or work there after they pass through one of more than 100 checkpoints, the interim chief said.
Police were especially worried about the children among the protesters. Bell said police were working with child-welfare agencies to determine how to safely remove the youngsters before authorities move in.
Early this week, the prime minister invoked Canada’s Emergencies Act, empowering law enforcement authorities to declare the blockades illegal, tow away trucks, arrest the drivers, suspend their licenses and take other measures.
On Thursday, Trudeau and some of his top ministers took turns warning the protesters to leave, in an apparent move by the government to avert a clash, or at least show it had gone the extra mile to avoid one.
Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said the government began freezing truckers’ accounts as threatened. “It is happening. I do have the numbers in front of me,” she said.
Ottawa police likewise handed out leaflets for the second straight day demanding the truckers end the siege, and also helpfully placed notices on vehicles informing owners how and where to pick up their trucks if they are towed.
The protests by demonstrators in trucks, tractors and motor homes initially focused on Canada’s vaccine requirement for truckers entering the country but soon morphed into a broader attack on COVID-19 precautions and Trudeau’s government.
The biggest, most damaging of the blockades at the border took place at the Ambassador Bridge between Windsor, Ontario, and Detroit. Before authorities arrested dozens of protesters last weekend and lifted the siege, it disrupted the flow of auto parts between the two countries and forced the industry to curtail production.
The final blockade, in Manitoba, ended peacefully Wednesday.

Ottawa police on horseback trample freedom protesters
Fri Feb 18, 2022 - 9:30 pm EST
OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) — Images and video coming from the Canadian national capital of Ottawa today sent shockwaves around the globe. Hundreds were arrested and went peacefully, but police were at times brutal. One group of officers on horseback were caught on video trampling protesters.
Another video from the clash shows officers hitting someone already on the ground with the butt of a rifle.
Police lines stood intimidatingly forcing protesters back. Some officers wore riot gear, some gas masks, most had pepper spray at the ready in their vests. Some held batons and some high-powered rifles.
As police advanced, they arrested some of the protesters who resisted moving back. Once they had passed a vehicle in the protest, police ordered the occupants out of the vehicle and, if they refused, police smashed the windows and arrested the protesters.
Protesters throughout the day tried to convince police that the protest had remained peaceful throughout the nearly three weeks without any incidences of significance despite hundreds of thousands of protesters joining in.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau refused to meet at all with representatives of the convoy despite the pleas of opposition parties and international ridicule regarding his undemocratic approach. On Monday, Trudeau invoked the Emergency Measures Act, which afforded him emergency police powers, as well as the ability to freeze bank accounts of those he targets [Patrick Bestall]
This was NOT a good Day for CANADA…
War Fears Mount as Putin Oversees Drills, Zelenskyy Meets Allies:
Russia's leader will oversee major military drills along Ukraine's borders on Saturday, further escalating tensions after Washington said Moscow would invade within days, and Ukraine's president headed to Europe to drum up support.
Artillery shelling in the east of Ukraine and orders from Russian-backed separatists for civilians to evacuate the region Friday inflamed an already febrile situation as Washington insisted Moscow was encircling its pro-Western neighbour.
The Kremlin continues to say it has no plans to attack.
U.S. President Joe Biden said that the invasion would come in the next week or days and that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin had "made the decision" to invade. But Biden left the door open for a diplomatic resolution.
"Russia has a choice between war and all the suffering it will bring or diplomacy that will make a future for everyone," Biden said at the White House Friday.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was due to travel to Germany Saturday to meet Western leaders, with talks between him and US Vice President Kamala Harris expected. [NewsMax]
IT’S NO SECRET WITH HIM: JUSTIN CASTRODEAU REVEALS HIS ADMIRATION FOR DICTATORSHIPS RIGHT ON NATIONAL TELEVISION (VIDEO):
Isn’t it interesting that as he mentions how much his onetime opponent, Stephen Harper, might like the tyrannical behavior of China, he’s the one talking about how much he admires China and listing all the reasons why? Couple that with the fact that it is Trudeau who is LITERALLY EXEMPLIFYING the very behaviors he’s describing, and the only logical conclusion you can make is that Trudeau is a power-hungry egomaniac who clearly lacks self-awareness.

Judge Throws Out Sarah Palin’s Defamation Suit Against the Times:
A judge just ruled against Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The judge threw out the defamation lawsuit Palin had against the New York Times over an editorial written in 2017. Apparently, Palin’s lawyers did not produce enough evidence that the newspaper knew that what they wrote about her was false or acted recklessly regarding indications that it was false.
Jed Rakoff was the U.S. District Court Judge that ended the case. The ruling came in the midst of a jury in Manhattan deliberating Palin’s suit. She believes that the New York Times, along with their former editor James Bennet, defamed her by linking her unfairly to a 2011 shooting crime in Arizona. The incident killed six people and also wounded former Rep. Gabby Giffords.
Judge Rakoff did allow the jury to continue to deliberate saying that an appeal was likely, and the jury’s verdict could be useful to the appeals court. The order to dismiss the case came after a trial that lasted more than a week. The jury was already in its second day of deliberation.
The judge explained in his ruling that Palin’s attorneys did not elicit enough evidence for a reasonable jury to conclude that the Alaskan governor experienced the “actual malice” standard set by the Supreme Court for libel suits against public figures. The High Court set this standard in 1984 in the New York Times Co. v. Sullivan ruling.
Rakoff said, “The Supreme Court made that balance and set a very high standard, and I don’t think that standard has been realized by a plaintiff concerning at least one aspect of the actual malice requirement. I don’t think a reasonable juror could conclude that Mr. Bennet either knew the statements were false or that he thought the statements were false and he recklessly disregarded that high probability.”
