Coffee Breath Conversations:

Hey everyone, Russell here. Welcome back to coffee breath conversations. Another daily live stream. Today, we're going to talk about people going missing Saskatchewan. The arrived Canada app causing confusion at the border. Tomorrow, Ilitch granted bail, and then a scuffle ensues with the media. British Columbia has become a gangster's paradise. And Farm Credit Canada encouraged people to report potential calm voice supporters. And then an internet drama news the term groomer has now been banned from Reddit and Twitter because it's now an anti LGBT slur. Whoopi Goldberg things Dr. Jill Biden PhD would make a great surgeon general and Kamala Harris reminds me and everyone else that she is a woman wearing a suit. Okay, just before we get started here, I just want to let people know that this is a new format that I'm doing. I'm trying to do live stream format trying to do it every day here. So there might be some some sort of crinkles to work out along the way, but definitely going to try to make this work. So I don't have much for local news today. If you check out the show from yesterday, I had quite a bit, talking about Irina's talking about the hospitals and Prince Albert in Saskatoon basically being a de facto homeless shelter for people and not getting the proper care that they need. And so yeah, if you're interested in that, check out the show from yesterday. Today just talking a bit about a missing persons case from Saskatoon here. Okay, local news. So on local news, Don Walker and Vinson, Jason are the latest missing people and an ever growing list in Saskatchewan reported missing July 24. Last seen on July 22, their vehicle was found near chief white cat Park. And the police are now conducting a reverse search and asking nearby people to turn over home video footage. I'm hopeful that for the families that they are found alive and safe. It's almost unheard of in 2022, that people can simply go missing and disappear. But it happens especially in rural areas, especially in areas with limited cell phone coverage. From the information gathered, it doesn't appear that that wherever they went, that they brought their electronic devices with them. But I didn't want to kind of look at the numbers. And the scattering Association of Police Chief website indicates at this time that there are 104 confirmed so that means that avenues to locate them have been completely exhausted. 104 confirmed missing people in the province. And the main clusters I looked at the map the main clusters revolve around Prince Albert Saskatoon and North Battleford. Now without trying to fear monger, if you look at the crime statistics, those areas also have some of the highest crime statistic blocks in the province. So does correlation equal causation? Well, I'm not sure. But there's definitely something going on here. At the end of the day, I'm hoping that these these people, this woman and her son, are found safe and that they had some reason to go on the run to get away from a bad situation or something like that. But it's definitely a sad situation. And I really hope that that they are found that they're found safe, and that everything turns out to be all right. But I am a little pessimistic. Unfortunately, I get that way after I think it's three days. If someone's missing for three days or longer, then the chances of finding them tend to start to rapidly diminish or at least finding them alive. But I mean, stay hopeful, stay hopeful for the families. And, and I am hopeful that that, again, they had some reason to go on the run for safety reasons, and that there'll be found safely. And so Switching now to national news, since that's all I really had today for local news. Okay, looking at the national news, so the arrive Canada app continues to cause confusion at the border. It was noted today that Niagara mer, had come out against it saying that it's wreaking havoc on their tourism industry. In a surprising move, federal NDP Member of Parliament, Brian Massey, from Windsor, Ontario, also came out against it saying that it wasn't there for its intended purpose. And that's actually there to track people. Now, I grew up in Windsor, Ontario, so to see, to see Bryan Massey come out against it was, I guess, not surprising these, I've always thought for NDP DICE has been pretty decent overall. But public health continues to insist that people have to do it as part of the quarantine act. That is, is an entry requirement into Canada? Well, legally, it's not as a Canadian citizen, you are entitled to come back into Canada, you cannot be denied access to Canada. So when they say it's an entry requirement there, they're not really telling the full truth there because you can't be denied entry into your own country. And what I think people are upset with is they're saying, well, what's the viability we're the only country that's still using this type of tracking method? And it is tracking method isn't there simply to to make things easier for processing? Because people that are offering to do the paperwork are being told no, you have to download the app, you have to download the app. And when they're saying no, I'll just I'll do the paperwork, I'll be on my way. And they're being told no, you need to download the app. So it's obviously if they're being told that they need to download this app and use it, then it's not simply being used for easier border entry, that there's a there's another purpose behind it. I was looking on Twitter, of course for the truth, because you can always find the truth on Twitter, no lies ever, no one ever tells a lie on the internet. So I do approach things with a healthy level of skepticism. And people are saying that, basically, if they have the arrive candidate, that they're being randomly selected to do a COVID test to do a PCR test, and I saw at least one video with someone on the phone with someone from public health, saying that they're required to do this, that they're randomly selected for a PCR test. And they were required to do it. Or they could face a hefty fine. So is it is it a situation where, where it's not tracking people? I mean, it's hard. It's hard to say, it appears to be a form of theater, and bureaucracy. Someone mentioned in one of the videos that we're going to take a quick look at here. And they mentioned that it's a form of Bureau government bureaucracy. And so let's just, let's just open this up here really quick. And let's take a look here. No, not that. We'll get to that guy next.

Unknown:

Nevermind, this is a bureaucracy gone and luck. I know. But you know, it's, it's why you have to do it. Right. This is more requirements, part of the quarantine. Right to get back in? Well, let's say you've got your gun rights court. You've got my COVID shots I've had for him to have my passport. Okay, why not? Let's just do the paperwork. Because they want the government. Let me

Coffee Breath Conversations:

so right there says let's just do the paperwork. Let's get this over with he says no, the government wants the app.

Unknown:

What's the reason why you don't want to do it? I don't think there's gonna be a reason to it. No, I don't think I should have. It's

Coffee Breath Conversations:

I'm trying. Again, I don't think I should have to well, there has to be a reason there has to be a reason while there doesn't really have to be a reason you're entering into Canada, you have the right to enter your own country. And the government has not instituted that into codified into law that nor to enter into Canada. As part of the Canadian Charter, you must have the arrived Canada app.

Unknown:

This is this is my phone. It's my app. I'm just having myself on it.

Coffee Breath Conversations:

So one of the things I want to say as well about sort of this arrive Canada app as well is when you look at the app and you and you look at the people that are saying that you need to have it these people are employed by the Public Health Agency of Canada. But when you look at them, they're just wearing these kind of blank red vests. They don't have any identifiers on them. They they don't really indicate who they are, what their role is, overall. There doesn't appear to be any sort of process to talk to someone Have a supervisor or someone in a position of authority that can answer additional questions, or any such things, it appears very much to be a situation where you're basically these people that you can't even really identify. despite them being public servants in a quasi law enforcement capacity, I guess in enforcing the quarantine act. Any police officer border officer, anyone representing a capacity of law enforcement is required to have ID on them so that you can file a complaint if you wish, hold them accountable. Things like that. I'm going to play this next video. And again, this one's been played several times before and I've addressed it previously as well with some of my annoyances with the video. And it goes beyond simply just shouldn't have to worry about the Rive Canada app. It goes it goes beyond that. Let's take a look.

Unknown:

I'm doesn't need in the province of Ontario to issue contravention fines if people do not comply. So if you don't want to comply, oh, give us your option. Yeah, you'd see the UK will take a fine, that's fine. I do you can't tell me.

Coffee Breath Conversations:

So it's so again, here's another person that kind of has this like red vest with no real identifiers on it. They have this badge around their neck, I didn't know that they that they issued badges to public health authority officers. But it doesn't look like there's any writing on it. I mean, it's not the best quality video bit of a potato phone. But it doesn't really have any identifiers on it looks like something you could have bought over $1 store. And then what looks like the ID band here, the name tag is flipped over. So you can't see the person's name. And this person is saying like you need to give me your passports.

Unknown:

You cannot tell me what is required. You'll give us back. They're not gonna keep it there. Just need your information. As soon as you're done with it to get information, since nothing makes sense. It's hard for us to trust anyone cuz nothing makes sense. So that's why we don't want give our passports away. But you'll definitely give us back our passport. I'm saying just get your passports back. Yeah, sure. Sure. You can have your cake and eat it too. That's Oh, yeah, this is very cakey. This is so creaky. Yeah, this is.

Coffee Breath Conversations:

So definitely maybe get some of the additional training on public. Talking to people in public might be a good idea. Because again, person is there kind of being rude. I won't play the full video because it's about four minutes long. But the person is saying, Well, you know, you can't have your cake and eat it too well. You know, again, if you're in a position of authority, and you're detaining people, you don't really have to mock them and put them down, you're already in the position of authority over them. So mocking them, belittling them, putting them down, that that's not going to help at all. So I don't know what the solution is, well, I can think of a good solution here. They should just can the app, they should say the app is we're done using the app. And we're going to move on from there. But I don't think that they're going to and it appears that despite all these misgivings about the app, they're going to continue to use the arrive Canada app. And again, we're seeing now is that politicians at the federal level that aren't just the conservatives, but other parties are starting to say, hey, like, why are we using this app? What's really going on here? Now you had the mayor from Niagara, also saying like, like, can we just use some common sense here, basically. So that's kind of what I want to say about the arrive Canada app, I think that the government really needs to look at it and say, Do we really need it? I don't think they need it personally. But that's going to be I guess, up to the federal government, and they do not seem at all determine not to use this app anymore. So moving on to our next national headline. So tomorrow Liche the Canadian freedom convoy political prisoner, held for questionable bail breech for over 50 days in total, was released with help from our legal team from the Justice Center for constitutional freedoms yesterday. And now the judge that was residing in this case is the fifth one to preside over this case in regards to these bail hearings, and this what he had to say, we're not talking about sedition. We're not talking about inciting a riot. We're talking about mischief here. Goodman said as he challenged the prosecutor to produce a similar case as legal precedent. Do you know of any case where mischief over $5,000 is even close to 10 years or even a penitentiary sentence the judge asked. And I think that's a really really good point. mischief is a hybrid A defense in Canada so it can be tried via summary conviction or it can be tried via indictable. Now indictable, of course is more severe, it's compared to the states, it's a felony charge versus a lesser charge if we're going to use states terms, but as a hybrid offense can be chosen to be done is either. And so again, in my hate to compare it to January 6, in the States, but it kinda seems to be following in line with that, where we have someone that's being held on in mischief charge for 50 days, bail breach for being in the same room as someone else who was a organizer for this convoy. Again, there was no talk of reviving the street protest or anything like that they were simply in the same room together. I do think that's bad judgment overall. And that probably shouldn't have happened when they're on bail. But again, just holding them back saying we need to deny bail. And yet people have gone online produced video after video after video and documents and documents, showcasing were people that have been charged for crimes of manslaughter and aggravated assault and all these different, very serious charges, even when they had a history of breaching conditions had been released. But they need to stop this woman. It's very, very political. I don't believe it's rooted in good faith whatsoever. And, you know, the judge in this kind of case was looking at and saying like, really does this really meet the legal threshold? Like do they have to bring her in there and shackles and marched around like that it's the it's it's theater at the end of the showcasing its theater. Now, so tomorrow was ordered released on bail the same conditions as before the as before, video shows tomorrow being embraced by family and friends outside the courtroom. When it then appears, a CTV journalism crew attempted to force their way through to Tamera which led to a brief scuffle. As the CTV anchor was seen being pushed and pushing as police enter the area quickly to break it up with people pointing to the CTV cameraman and yelling to the police. And at this time, they don't know who started the scuffle or if charges are being pursued. So we'll take a we'll take a very quick look at that. I have it up here so that journalists there is Glenn McGregor looks like a restarted on me. But that journalist there's a Glenn McGregor. And again, I can't really tell who started the scuffle. But from what it looks like and there's a couple of different angles you can find online. It appears that the CTV journalism crew tried to kind of push their way in to get some footage, and they kind of got pushed back and led to a kind of bit of a scuffle. You saw the police quickly entered in the area and broke it up. They didn't look very impressed by the whole thing, but it'll be interesting to see. CTV and I was checking on Glenn McGregor's twitter feed earlier and there was no statement nothing had been said. So be interested to see and maybe I'll update on a future daily show to see if anything is is said about the incident. And another interesting one is block locks reporting. Through documents received revealed that the farmers credit center may have lied back in February 22 2021 said it had not compiled a list in respect to the freedom convoy internal email received that employees were told that if they became aware of potential customer involvement that they must submit a tip to the customer due diligence center including name stated involvement, and other pertinent details but not to launch their own investigation. So they were so basically FCC. Alright, this company that is supposed to help farmers with their with different monetary aspects that's also funded through the government. These documents were were received through an ATF request They said that they, in fact had actually been compiling a list that was supposed to go to some Customer Care Center. So on February 22, when block blocks first reported that FCC was compiling a blacklist of farmers, they denied it. They said, No, it's not happening. Well, the ATF request that was filed is now showing over in this was part of 1000 document release, that in fact, there was internal emails that was to single out people that might be involved with the freedom convoy to basically be screened in for for additional looking at and we'll take a brief look at that. You'll have to go to block locks if you want to see the full report and block locks is a pay to read site. So this is a public tweet. So FCC has received a list of names from Ottawa police service. Restraint orders for funds raced through Gibson go crowdfunding platform for the freedom convoy. So that was one of the emails, there was another email that's on here as well, that that indicates that yes, the convoy. Supporters that talk to FCC were indeed were indeed being being compiled onto some form of a list. In other news, the final kind of news pieces, you know, British Columbia, really seems to have become some form of Gangster's sort of paradise. They had another shooting out in Surrey. And this is just become a really a grouping of about 10 sort of shootings in the last month, in sort of the BC interior. Of course, one earlier in the month where nine police officers were injured, I believe, when a bank robbery gone wrong and escalated into a shootout with the police. And since then, it just seems like the firearm crime and in BC, in that kind of interior sector has just gone out of control. Now I can say I can attest personally, that about a month ago, I had to travel to to Kelowna for work. And I was meeting up with a family member that lives in Kelowna. And I mean, it's a beautiful town like really it is if you get a chance to go there. I'm gonna I'm about to say something trashy about Kelowna. But I'll tell you this. The Okanagan Valley is amazing. The the wine tours, they're great. It's a very, it's very clean city. Overall, it has its areas, I think, that are not so good. And it's known to be a bit of a party city downtown. But overall, it's not a it's not a bad city to go to now when my family member came and picked me up. We saw an ad we saw an ambulance and a fire truck go flying by we saw the police were were chasing someone down. They were sectioning off an area it was it was really weird. And I turn the phone number I'm like, is this common here? And he's like, I don't know. Like, I've never really seen it like this before. And and then there was someone who looked like he done like a citizen's arrest. There was some guy on the ground and people were filming on their phones. And it was just like, whoa, like, you know, for a city I thought was kind of Bergy it's kind of reminded me a bit of Prince Albert North Battleford right now. Who knows, maybe I brought the I brought the I brought the Saskatchewan crime rates with me who knows. But there definitely seems to be an issue with a growing number of, of shootings and firearm involvement. Now these firearms, of course, are not legally purchased firearms are illegal firearms. But, you know, in our current climate, the best way to deal with shootings is to is to address is to take action against legal firearms owners who are vetted and trained and only use their firearms legally approved ranges. So hopefully, hopefully these sorts of incidents aren't going to be used as tipping blocks to lead to further firearm confiscation in this country. We already saw that with Brenda lucky and the denial that she's made and about potential prosecutorial prosecution level involvement in giving the government firearms information they could use towards banning additional firearms. So that's kind of what I had for news for today. Now let's move on to the fun stuff, the internet drama The stuff everyone loves. Oh okay internet drama. So first thing on the list Vernet drama. And this one here is a very complicated one, I think, overall, but I won't, I'm not going to get too much into it. But I will direct you to, to a resource I think we'll provide some context is the term groomer. So this term has really kind of exploded into the stratosphere of the culture war. Guys like James Lindsay and a few other conservatives really kind of started this with whenever there was something involving drag queen storytime hour, or grade school that was telling kids that they can change their gender, and they'll keep it secret from their parents and stuff like that. They were throwing out the term groomer, implying that these kids are being groomed for predation by predators and, and things like that. There's some context that the grooming was done to groom them into some form of Cultural Marxism, that sort of thing. And the term really blew up. No, I think it's an overused term. Yeah. You know, that kind of became the discourse anytime someone wanted to engage in an honest discourse. They were just met with Okay, groomer, okay, groomer, okay, groomer over and over again. And I can understand how that's upsetting. But as soon as you ban a word, or you say that a word shouldn't be used anymore, can't be used anymore. All you do is you learn is you lead instant credence to the reasoning behind using that word. So when they banned that word, off red and say it was an anti LGBT Q slur. All that told people was was well, why? Why would that be specific to that? You know, are LGBTQ people groomers and again, I know the reasoning is a little circular. But again, like I said, with guys like Alex Jones and Stefan Molyneux, and that you can disagree with them all you want, as soon as you ban them, all you've done is you've just legitimize them you've said, your point is to correct and it's too dangerous for the mainstream conversation. So we have to ban it. And when you're dealing with people, especially people that are involved in conspiracy theories and things like that, students, you get involved in something where it's looked as as conspiratorial in nature, all you've done is you've validated their concerns. And you've only empowered them to continue preaching on and saying, Hey, no, this is what's going on. Look, I got banned for it, I got banned for telling the truth. So it's not a good look. And frankly, I do believe as a society, we need to have an honest conversation about grooming and grooming behavior. Resource all link is you can check out my Twitter, coffee breath conversations. My pin tweet is talking a bit about grooming a personal situation where were myself and my family were groomed into a situation where one of my family members was sexually assaulted by someone else. It's a very personal story. But it's up there. It's the truth. And it's what happens with grooming and grooming behavior. The real reason reason that grooming behavior happens, not just some hypothetical, but what happens and what it does to families. So highly recommend you check that out. I did a podcast episode with dangerous rhetoric. And that will be coming out in the next few days hopefully. And again, another topic where we dive right into the whole groomer controversy we really really dive into we talk about, you know, power and dynamics and what it means in the context of grooming and, and I think it's going to be a very powerful conversation overall. So highly recommend you check that out. But groomers off you can't mention it. It's instant. We bannable offense on Reddit gets suspended off of Twitter. I think it's the wrong decision, I think is just going to further entrench people into their ideological camps. All right. Let's talk about Whoopi Goldberg. Remember her while she had some pretty big brain things say about Dr. Jill Biden PhD. So we're going to give it a quick listen here hopefully you can hear it if you can't hear it. Do let me know where is here we go.

Unknown:

becomes a Surgeon General. His joke has fired his wife because she's you know he would never do but she thinks yes She's a hell of a doctor. She's an amazing doctor.

Coffee Breath Conversations:

Yeah. Hopefully you can hear that, basically will be with suggesting that that Dr. Jill Biden PhD would make a great surgeon general for, for the US because she's a great doctor. Again, she has a doctorate in education. And this is, you know, we talk about fallacies, right? Well, you know, the appeal to authority fallacy. So, there was this thing during kind of the election season where people are saying, She's not the first lady. She's a strong woman, she is Dr. Jill Biden, PhD, and you will address her by her official title, which, okay, that's, that's fine. But there's a lot of people who legitimately thought that she was like a medical doctor, not saying that a doctor and education isn't easy to get in that it's not valid in its own way. But uh, you're not certainly not a medical doctor, in that regards. And it looks like, it looks like we took it a little too personally, she got a she got a little bamboozled there. And then finally, the Vice President United States reminds us of the obvious, so let's give that give that one a quick listen, this one's a fun one.

Unknown:

I want to welcome these leaders are coming in to have this very important discussions about some of the most pressing issues of our time. I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she of her, I'm a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit. And

Coffee Breath Conversations:

okay, so there's the obvious right there. It's kind of sad, she had to look down at her notes to read that out. And I get what she's what she's trying to get at is, you know, they're trying to be more accommodating for people that are visually impaired and that but the thing is, if you're blind, you don't know what a blue suit looks like. Anyways, if you're legit, legitimately blind, you don't know what color looks like, is difficult for us that can see to fathom but someone that is blind, doesn't have a concept of these things. And maybe they were, they're just low visually impaired. Well, that's where we have glasses and stuff for it. It just it really wreaked of desperation. It wreaked of low effort, virtue signaling. And then I didn't play the full clip, but every single person around the table introduced themselves and indicated what they're wearing, what the color of their hair was, and that they were sitting at a table like it. It reeks of desperation. It didn't it did not in any way, shape, or form really, really lead any credence to conversation or anything like that. So it was like stating the obvious. Now would have been a nice follow up question. When Joe Biden says, you know, that she was a woman is to ask Joe Biden Well, well, Jill, what is or sorry, not Joe Biden. Kamala Harris, my bad. Although I think it'd be a good question to ask Joe Biden tubes and see if she'd be able to answer this just say, Kamala, what is a woman and see if she can even answer that without going into some weird word salad that she usually goes into. But anyways, that's the internet drama news for today. And that's all I have for today. And that's enough drama for today, which is July 27 2022. I hope you enjoyed the show. If you did, please consider leaving me a rating on Apple, Spotify. Or if you're watching the stream, dropping a like, comment and subscribe.
