Globalists/Neocons Prepare …
… to Battle Russia and United States

Neo-conservatives and their globalist co-ideologues are persistent if anything else. The decision by the Donald Trump transition team to bar those neo-con Republicans who signed on to the Never Trump movement from having any positions in his administration has globalist and neo-con circles looking for other venues from which to operate.
The neo-cons and globalists have regrouped in order to fight against both Russia and the incoming US President Donald Trump. With the departure of arch-neocons Victoria Nuland from her perch in the State Department, Samantha Power from the US mission to the United Nations, and Susan Rice from the National Security Council, the neocon and globalist establishments, which have in common their Atlanticist views, have settled on Canada as the ideal place from which to wage their wars of subterfuge and propaganda.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau fired his foreign minister Stephane Dion to make way for an ideological doppelganger for Nuland, Power, and Rice on the world stage: Chrystia Freeland, his trade minister. Dion’s policy of seeking to engage with Russia is what ultimately cost him his job as Ottawa prepares to host every anti-Trump instability operation it can muster for future operations against the Trump administration.
Freeland, who is of Ukrainian descent, became a darling of the globalists after she hammered out a free trade agreement with the European Union last year. A frustrated Freeland leaned heavily on the one holdout to the deal, the regional government of Wallonia in Belgium. Even after it was announced that the Wallonian government dropped its reservations to the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (“CETA”), the Belgian central government reneged on a deal with the Wallonians that would have required the EU Court of Justice review the agreement before the final accession by Brussels.
Freeland also oversaw the signing of the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement with the neo-fascist government in Kiev. Steeped in the corporatism and globalism of Canadian Liberal Party doctrine, Freeland is of the view that regional governments, whether they are in Wallonia, Crimea, or Quebec, have no right to self-determination. This behavior is at the root of corporate globalist ideology. Freeland’s fellow Liberals in Quebec have neutered the Quebec sovereignty movement. However, if French National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen is victorious in this year’s election, France can breathe new life into the Quebec independence movement, much as President Charles de Gaulle did in Montreal in 1967 with his famous “Vive le Quebec Libre!” speech.
With the appointment of Freeland as foreign minister and Somali-born Ahmed Hussen as Immigration Minister, Trudeau has drawn a red line against Trump on the twin issues of globalization and open borders migration. Ottawa will soon become a nest for anti-Trump operations that will almost certainly involve the billionaire global troublemaker George Soros.
Like Power, Freeland is a former journalist who traded in her journalistic credentials to become a shill for globalization’s new world order. A Rhodes scholar, graduate of Harvard, and alum of the Brookings Institution, she represented the Financial Times (“FT“) in Washington, New York, and Moscow.
Freeland’s anti-Russian stance, including her support for sanctions against Russia over Ukraine and Crimea, earned her a visa ban from the Russian government. During her final months in Moscow for the FT, Freeland became a major critic of the new administration of President Putin and accused him of creating a dictatorship in Russia. Before heading the FT‘s Moscow bureau, Freeland’s Russophobia was honed during her time as a reporter in Kiev. In fact, Freeland’s bias against Russia has always been present in her reporting. Freeland’s closest friends cross party lines in Canada and they include the Liberal Party’s Zionist overseer, Irwin Cotler; Paul Grod, the president of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress; and Conservative Party foreign affairs spokesman Peter Kent.
In one of her first statements as foreign minister, Freeland vowed that Canadian sanctions will not be lifted against Russia. On January 10 2017, Freeland vowed that Canada will serve as a front against rising global “trade protectionism and xenophobia”. That was a clear warning to Trump in Washington, Marine Le Pen, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, and UK Independence Party politician Nigel Farage. In December 2016, Canada hosted a meeting of the United Nations High Commission on Refugees and Soros’s Open Society Foundations that seeks to expand the movement of refugees from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia to the industrialized nations of the West. There is little doubt that Russophobes Freeland and Soros are cooperating on several fronts against both Russia and Trump.
Europe’s ankle-biting small powers are ecstatic that the Trudeau government has placed a Russophobe in charge of Canada’s foreign relations. Freeland has made no secret of her aim to influence the Trump administration to change course on Russia. She has bragged about her “wide network of contacts” in Washington and she claims she has experience working the “power corridors” in the US Congress, State Department, and White House. The Ukrainian ambassador in Ottawa, Andriy Shevchenko, hopes that Freeland will “educate” the Trump administration on maintaining political and economic pressure on Russia. The Latvian ambassador in Ottawa, Karlis Eihenbaums, views Ottawa as the launch point for a de facto Nato “influence operations” campaign in Washington to derail closer US-Russian relations.
Freeland showed her intentions toward Trump and Putin when she met at the recent Davos Economic Summit in Switzerland with US financier William Browder, the figure at the center of a massive fraud scheme in Russia involving his Guernsey-based company, Heritage Financial Management. Browder, the grandson of the one-time leader of the US Communist Party Earl Browder, is, like fellow fraudster Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a fierce critic of the Russian government and President Putin.
From Ottawa, Freeland will lead the neocon and globalist charge against any attempt by Trump to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement (“NAFTA”). She will almost certainly try to salvage the Trans-Pacific Partnership (“TPP”), which includes Canada and which Trump has vowed to scrap. Freeland will also likely open up Canada’s Arctic to a military presence by anti-Russian Nato countries like Norway, Denmark, and Germany, as well as pro-Nato Sweden and Finland. An increased Nato presence, without US forces, in the Canadian Arctic will not only militarize the region but send a warning to Russia about Canadian control over emerging Arctic sea lanes that are increasingly navigable due to climate change.
With Ottawa becoming a center for anti-Trump and anti-Russian activities, the world can expect a chill to set in between Canada and the United States. If Trump begins to view Canada as a source for anti-Trump operations, the US border with Mexico may not be the only flash point in North American politics.
