“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtains,” says the Wizard in the 1939 classic film adapted from the Frank L. Baum masterpiece of entertainment and satire.
While seen primarily as a film for young people it has inspired sequels by Baum, and then later has spawned spoofs, pastiches and alternate views of entire books and the cast of characters.
The scene is near the climax of the film and as Toto, who has escaped from Dorothy, runs towards a curtain and pulls it back to reveal the Wizard who is speaking into a tube and controlling a distorted image.
“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain,” he says to the group who is watching.
Caught in his lies, he tells the story of how he came to Oz and became the Great Wizard.
If you look into the history of the film and the subsequent books it is apparent that the Wizard, Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, Scarecrow and Lion are archetypes and represent more than they seem to be. The entire film is an allegory about power and greed and a dire warning that not all is as it seems.
Our modern history, our pandesent is beleaguered with the same problem.
Not all is as it seems.
We could discuss US politics with Qanon and the Main Stream Media at odds over perceptions and reality, but it would conclude nor solve no problem. Is Donald Trump the worst president ever or are the Democrats demons behind every Bush? Hmmm.
In Canada, we have a similar problem without a national information source that permeates society at all levels. It is factual that our Main Stream Media (CBC, CTV, Black Press and others) have been encouraged to be gentle with the Liberals and they certainly have been. ‘Alternate’ news organizations such as True North and the Rebel have traditionally been treated as personae non grata by the Liberals and until this month, by the ruling party in Alberta as well.
Yet, funded or not Main Stream Media do not have all the news sources and reports that reveal a different picture than ‘sunny days’ Justin wants us all to see.
Most Canadians would be surprised to know that there are lawsuits and court cases pending against Prime (Crime) Minister Justin Trudeau (and his cronies) on a number of levels and a number of charges that include corruption and deception on Covid 19 responses. There is also a motion that includes private copyright on a national law!
Super Lawyer Rocco Galati is suing the Canadian government, Trudeau, Federal and Provincial Health Ministers, and others in the first of its kind supreme court lawsuit. His argument is fact and research based and he asserts that the extreme COVID Measures that have now been proven to cause 14 to 1 more deaths than the actual virus!
Rebel News reporter, Ezra Levant has covered this story in a hard-hitting report at:
A secondary site, globalresearch.ca has interviewed Galati at:
Just as many YouTube, Twitter and alternate news sources (NOT CONSPIRACY) have reported and documented, the Galati lawsuit has a long list of experts, data, and more to prove the case against the government.
Presently, a handful of countries including the United States and Germany have similar push back against extreme measures.
Secondly, Canadian Norman Traversy delivered a 192 page document to the US Embassy in Ottawa on July 1, 2020 alleging that Justin Trudeau is guilty of corruption in the S.N.C. Lavalin scandal at many levels, just as many of his cohorts in the Liberal Cabinet and sphere of influence. Previously, Donald Trump, the CIA and FBI were delivered copies and are now aware of the charges. According to the new USMCA agreement section 27.5, any leader charged with corruption can and will be investigated to the full extent of the law.
As of mid August, Traversy now has legal counsel for his legal action and as his website notes:
“We (Norman) has (have) served a letter to the Ethics Commissioner concerning Trudeau’s obstruction of justice. We are piggybacking on the WE investigation, the Trudeau III report. We have CC’d President Trump and President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.”
As reported by Traversy, extensive preparations for the Private Prosecution in the Ontario Court of Justice are ongoing with support growing quickly from all sectors of Canadian society.
“We will be able to add further charges to the motion once we are heard, and we will be adding MC IMC elements (Picton Pig Farm),” noted Traversy in an interview.
While there are many sources for information on such activities in the United States and worldwide, Canadian sources are few and I defer to Norman Traversy who states the case best in his letter to President Trump and Mexican President Obrador that explains three separate allegations:
All things considered, with a Crime Minister who is allegedly complicit in corruption of various sorts and the promotion of global corporation sponsored policy in Canada should not have the mandate to lead our country considering his demonstrated moral compass. I am embarrassed and ashamed of the morals of our leadership in our country.
May God have mercy on our souls if we re-elect this evil man.
Trudeau’s Pandemic Accord: Selling Canada By The Pound
“The #PandemicAccord process is at the very beginning of a multiyear Member State led negotiation, which will only be finalised in 2024 after multiple public hearings around the world. And all voices will be heard”–@DrTedros WHO
Some are born great. Some have greatness thrust upon them. Then there’s Justin Trudeau, the Trust Fund Fruit-Loop. You know you’re out of your depth. Worse, you know that everyone else knows you’re out of your depth. You know that they know you have a resumé thinner than consommé. You have multiple skeletons hidden back at the ski chalet. They only want you for your name.
So what do you do to win respect? You rent yourself out to the fashionable, the witty wind therapists, the glib retainers of the media. The unelected armies of NGOs and Davos cowboys who live off free money and private jets. The positively furious grad-school Marxists.
“Make me into a man,” cried Pinnochio. “Not this wooden son of Margaret Trudeau that I am now.” So his handlers got to the work of making chicken salad from chicken… er, stuff.
Making the Pinocchio conversion much easier was how a tattered Liberal Party, the party his father had helped to crater, was looking around for something, anything, to retrieve their hustle from the dread Stephen Harper. So Trudeau literally threw himself into the arms of the calculating Cape Breton fixer Gerald Butts and a coterie of Kinsey-style influencers and leeches.
Using Justin’s coming-out performance as the sobbing son at Papa Pierre’s casket, they put him on a trajectory to dominate Instagram and eTalk. The urban hives of Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal were tired of apologizing to their progressive pals elsewhere for a leader who wore sans-a-belt pants and gloried in policy. The Hill Media Party wanted someone with a little sizzle.
His fixers’ only instruction? “Shut you mouth and keep your hands to yourself.” This proved difficult for Justin. But an acquiescent media corps buried his sexual faux pas faster than Hunter Biden burying his meth lab.
So Justin boxed the hapless Patrick Brazeau to firm up his macho bonafides. He did cupcake photo apps with his soon-to-be-estranged wife in glossy U.S. periodicals. He stopped openly dreaming of the Communist Chinese government model. Voilà. Trudeau the Younger won the prize.
Ensconced as PM, Justin resorted to his entitled past, taking free trips from the Aga Khan, getting jiggy with a female reporter, calling off the Mounties’ investigating Quebec’s SNC Lavalin. And sucking up big time to the global elites by destroying Canada’s energy industry. Always protected by media he’d paid off in advance.
To make up for lost Liberal seats in future elections he recruited the hapless Jagmeet Singh and his NDP faculty club into a non-aggression pact. He was free to embrace all the fashionable frippery of the Woke radicals. With another term— and Singh— in hand it came time last fall to pay off his real constituents: the Reset Regime. The suits who give him gravitas. Luminaries such as WEF honcho Klaus Schwab, who bragged at having “penetrated” Trudeau’s cabinet.
Enter the WHO’s wildly ambitious Pandemic Accord. Never heard of it?
According to WHO director-general Dr. Tedros, the Chinese puppet running the WHO, the Pandemic Accord is an urgent project. ”The last few years have taught us about our own collective fragility and the threat to economies and security of not working together… The essence of the proposed #PandemicAccord is to improve cooperation, coordination, and the sharing of data, information, biological materials and lifesaving tools.”
If you’re looking to parse that word salad, rest assured that the Pandemic Accord will not be consulting local knowledge the next time a virus rolls through. It will be “one size fits all” lockdowns, vaccines and travel restrictions mandated in Europe. And the funding for the Accord will be a sinkhole, not unlike the current UN.
(If you’re thinking this surrender of sovereignty is just a Justin thing, 154 other sheep nations have also signed up for this “1984” tribute. Australia’s PM Scott Morrison sums up the enthusiasm for Covid Kool-Aid on the pandemic treaty: “The WHO should have those powers and authorities,” he announced. For an intellectual non-entity like Trudeau this is a train he needs to get on board. He’ll get to hang with the big guys.)
Now if you haven’t heard of the Pandemic Accord, you’re not alone. Because it has the power to upset naïve citizens, the arrival of this monstrosity has been covered up by the war in Ukraine. Wondering if the Bono was why Trudeau kept flying to Ukraine? In part, yes.
But he was also meeting with European leaders and global financiers about the Accord and handing over sovereignty to unelected suits. And how he can get a piece of the action when he leaves the PMO. You didn’t know his stint as PM was simply a job application to hanging with the globalist crowd? What are you, a trucker? Shame on you.
While Skippy is burnishing his CV in Europe, in his home province the Quebec government has decided now is the time to squeeze non-Francophones again. “Bill 96 would impose tougher language requirements on small businesses and companies in federally regulated industries, such as banking and telecommunications, as well as governments and schools.
If passed, companies with 25 employees or more would be subject to “francization” — government certification that use of French is generalized in the workplace — down from 50 currently. The bill also assigns new powers to the French language watchdog and sets tighter language rules for professional orders.
The cost for a roughly 50-employee company would range between $9.5 million and $23.5 million, according to estimates from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. The bill is expected to pass before the legislature breaks for the summer.”
It’ll all be fuelled by a snitch culture that turns neighbours against each other and on companies. To help Premier François Legault navigate any legal or Charter issues, the PM has said they’ll move the deck chairs so it can pass without a problem.
But that and soaring gas prices is all just a sideshow for Trudeau. The big action— and respect— lies in Europe. And he can’t wait for you to give him a lucrative send-off.

The Real Reason for Record Gas Prices
Who’s to blame for record high gas prices which in turn have made EVERYTHING more expensive?
Politicians are using the playbook of environmental activists who want desperately to slow everything down, every business, and every single person (who can’t afford endless price hikes).
Here’s Emmy Award winning journalist John Stossel.
Putin! Price gouging! Excess profit! Politicians blame the wrong things for record gas prices. Politicians say higher prices are caused by “corporate greed.” Nonsense. Greed is a constant. Companies are always greedy. They were just as greedy when prices dropped. “If big oil could raise prices anytime they wanted … then why were they so cheap in 2020?” asks Ben Lieberman of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. He points out that the record price “all comes down to cutting back on supplies.” Exactly. Prices change because of supply and demand. Politicians, pushed by environmental activists, have restricted oil production.
