Not good . . .


OUT OF CONTROL: when the RCMP pepper spray unarmed elders. According to Cari-Lee Raven Veilifter, who can be found on Facebook at #‎ElsipogtogStandOff‬:
“the elder the RCMP are pepper spraying is our elder Doris Copage of Elsipogtog (short hair/gray jacket). Doris is one of the kindest and most helpful people I've ever met. She cooks for and looks out for everyone. Of course she was completely unarmed and only had her rosary beads in hand when this happened- so they had no reason to spray her.”
Ya gotta wonder where the Tasers were. PRESS CORE is concerned about all the heavy-duty firepower; it seems that some of it might not be the RCMP, like the dude below. Do check out the site for some interesting pictures.

Just who is that guy. He doesn't have an insigna. Is he a hired gun from some outfit like BlackWater? If he is a hired gun, then he is in violation of Canada's gun laws and the rcmp might want to arrest him.

Bring in the Pinkertons.
At least the CTV network is right on top of things.

everything and anything could go wrong with fracking.

Is the guy in the military get up a Pickerton or some armed militia brought in from elsewhere? Was he the only one?

The guy in camo is shown on video (posted to You Tube) actually drawing his pistol. As you can see here, it's in his right hand. Fucking pretend soldier.

Eeep. I read a handful of the other "articles" on that PressCore website, and I'm gonna take that whole article with about a two-metric-tonne block of salt.

It looks about as trustworthy as InfoWars or Flat Earth Society Quarterly.

That said, I would like to know if those pictures come from the standoff and, if so, who are those "soldiers" in uniforms and without identifying tags?

Has anyone else noticed that the media are framing this as a 'shale gas' protest when it's a demonstration against fracking?

Eeep.

10-4 that, sorry, Press Core is boogity-boogity, but that particular article seemed to hold water amongst the foil-hat paranoia.

A delightful non-Eeep site is Nautilus

Getting through "Beyond the Horizon of the Universe" by Laura Mersini-Houghton, excellent read.

This blogpost discusses some of the stories and thinks they were all RCMP.

I don't know this blog but have seen it referred to a few times and the article seems sensible:

They are apparently the SWAT (or whatever it's called) team from 'J' Division (New Brunswick) of the RCMP. They are not Canadian Armed Forces at all.

Most of the website you cite is so weird as to create an automatic credibility problem for anything they say. I mean, Sandy Hook as a UN false flag operation? Really?

It's so cute when police Walter Mitties get together for a bit of military-style cosplay. Or it would be if they weren't doing it to menace their fellow citizens, on our dime...
