Hypocritical Canada - Bad Mouthing/Sanctioning Russia...Yet Sucking Up When it Comes to Space

American, Russian and Canadian Astronauts

Nobody likes a hypocrite.  I've been saying for a couple of years now that the reason le Dauphin tanked in the public opinion polls within a year of his election is because of his hypocritical attitude towards Russia.  Trudeau's first and only conversation with Putin shortly after becoming Canada's prime minister was short and not sweet "You need to get out of Ukraine" was Trudeau's hypocritical message.  Trudeau probably didn't even know how hypocritical he sounded to older Canadians, who remember the Quebec Independence Crisis in the 1960's in Canada.  In that crisis, Quebeccers were allowed to have a referendum--to decide for themselves whether they wanted to remain in Canada.  Luckily for Canada, they chose, by a razor thin margin, to stay.  Now, the ethnically Russian Crimeans also held a referendum to decide whether they wanted to stay in Ukraine, which had removed a Ukrainian pro Russian leader by a violent coup, or return to Russia...where their culture and language rights would be respected.  The Crimeans, by a vote of over 90%, decided to return to Russia.  The "West", including Trudeau, do not recognize the Crimeans' right to decide their future.  How hypocritical of Justin--when his own father led the "Non" forces in the Quebec Referendum--which was recognized.  Such hypocrisy is so disgusting and so "in your face" that it totally turned off average Canadians.  That, along with Trudeau's constant "virtue signaling" and arrogance is why he is now political "toast".

Canadians are reminded of Trudeau's hypocrisy every time they read the newspaper or watch the news.  Here is an article about Canada's space program that appeared today on the CBC website.  Please read and I will have more comments to follow:

From the CBC

"...In spite of successive rounds of economic and diplomatic sanctions — as a result of issues such as Russia's role in Ukraine and Syria — the job of blasting people into orbit has remained remarkably untouched by the bitter divide between Russia and its western space partners, which includes Canada.

"I like to view myself that I am standing on a bridge above all the unrest and tensions," said David Saint-Jacques, Canada's next space-bound traveller, who is scheduled to launch in December.

The 49-year-old Montrealer will lift off in a Russian rocket, sitting alongside a Russian cosmonaut commander and relaying key information to a ground-based Russian mission control, all the while speaking in Russian.

"You have to acknowledge politics — it exists," Saint-Jacques said. "It is a reality and we don't dismiss it, but we are fortunate, [as] cosmonauts and astronauts, that we are part of one of those few 'strings' that still exist between nations."

Saint-Jacques, who earned a PhD in astrophysics and also worked as a medical doctor, has been training for his December flight at Russia's Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre, about an hour and half northeast of Moscow. This week, Canadian media were invited to observe some of his exercises and speak to the other two members of the crew.

While many other sectors of Russia's economy, such as the banking and energy industries, have been the frequent target of Western sanctions, so far, space has been left untouched.

Practical partnership

In April, Russian President Vladimir Putin told an audience of space enthusiasts at a Cosmonaut Day address in Moscow that he has no intention of drawing the space program into his disagreements with the United States and other western countries.

There may be practical reasons for that. Russia's space program remains a huge source of pride for the country, and Putin's government frequently invokes the names of great Russian space travellers — such as Gagarin — as he attempts to rebuild Russia's standing in the world.

NASA is also in the midst of a long-term contract with Russia that is lucrative for Putin's administration. NASA is paying Roscosmos, Russia's space agency, more than $2.6 billion US to take its astronauts up to the International Space Station until 2019. The last Canadian astronaut in space, Commander Chris Hadfield (who commanded the ISS in 2013), flew there in a Russian Soyuz rocket.

Since the end of NASA's Shuttle Program in 2011, Roscosmos has been the only option for moving people to the space station. The contract has been a lucrative source of money for Russia's space program, allowing the Putin government to continue working on new heavy-lift rockets with the aim of phasing out the 50-year-old Soyuz technology.

The hope is that Russia's new generation of rockets will be able to compete with soon-to-be-available privately owned spacecraft developed by U.S. companies such as Boeing and SpaceX.

Saint-Jacques says that while economics matter, he believes space has been free of political retribution mostly because all sides agree mankind must keep pushing forward with exploration...."


Greencrow says: You won't be hearing Trudeau thank the Russians for allowing Canada to piggyback onto their space program yet again. Nosiree. Knuckleheaded Trudeau doesn't back down once he takes one of his "principled stands" on an issue. The fact of the matter is that Russia created the Space Station--and all of the foreign states that have sent astronauts into orbit around the earth on it--have gone there due to Russian technology. This was made possible due to the unique Russian ability, unknown in the West, to separate politics from science and to maintain agreements, even when the other side kicks you in the teeth. This is what the West has done to Russia---with all the sanctions--based on lies (like the Skripal hoax) and psychopathic fraud [the Bill Browder "Magnitsky Act" scam].  Nobody would hold it against Russia if it suddenly told the West to take its astronauts and shove them somewhere where the sun don't shine--and I don't mean space.

But Russia soldiers on...maintaining the decades old Agreements and contracts signed before the West decided that Russia had to be it's new "enemy du jour" in order that the MIC could keep fleecing taxpayers' money to pad their already exorbitant military budgets. Russia adheres to the old values like "Our Word is Our Bond".

But the Space Station contracts will all be up in the next few years--and it's highly doubtful they will be renewed. Once they're up, the West will have to depend on private contractors like Boeing and SpaceX to create a similar program. From their achievements thus far, it will be a very long time before the West is able to set up a Space Station to orbit the earth [they're even still dependent on Russia for rockets, for Gawd's sake!]. Why doesn't the West just give the assignment to NASA you ask. After all, NASA took man to the mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon in 1969. lolololololololol. NASA was/is just a fairytale. NASA is like asking Disney to handle space travel. It will be very believable and the graphics will be stunning. The brainwashed sheeple will buy it hook, line and sinker. Western civilians should ask themselves why Russia has never tried to go to the moon.

To send humanity into space requires the kind of technology that only Russia has been able to come up with. If Westerners really want to be part of the emerging new Russian technology in the future, wankers like Trudeau better grow up, stop hypocritically sucking up and then kicking Russia in the ballz. The real mystery for Canadians is why Trudeau would [or must] go down in ignominious electoral defeat in the next election rather than give a little well-earned respect to Russia.  Who's yanking his chain????

You always make me laugh GC...moooooooony loooooooony tuuuuuuunes! Not trying to get off topic, but I found this today and am passing it around. This is a trailer to a recent Newsbud video on Vimeo approx 3 hour doc about 9/11.
One can either rent or download.
Pass it on...

Thanks for the info on the NewsBud video . Just yesterday I made a comment on RI stating that to save the nation of the US ,there would need to be a disclosure of nine eleven event ,to clean up the many criminals that are acting as leaders .
Looks like a good video to have.

Disclosure of the truth about the 9/11 atrocity and other events is why I've suggested forming a "Truth and Reconciliation" government committee where insider whistleblowers can tell the world what they know in return for amnesty.

What do you think about the Truth and Reconciliation concept?

Reading between the lines said...

Amnesty and then hanging !
But seriously the truth and reconciliation concept could work in getting the truth out.But and I do mean but ,the people responsible for this crime , should be named and shamed ,after all if we consider all the people in the buildings ,Afghanistan , Iraq ,Libya , Syria that have died because of this event it becomes very very hard to give them amnesty .The bottom line is we need disclosure , if this is at all possible from the entity that governs most of the Western world.
Cheers from Manitoba !

All I can say RBTL is that it's too bad for Amerika that the Dufus Trump is in the early stages of senility/dementia. He was the last hope for that nation. As someone who was NOT on the scene during the 9/11 atrocity, he could have opened the floodgates of truth.

But he doesn't know Sh!t from Shinola at this stage of his career....which sadly coincides with his presidency.

Reading between the lines said...

Trump is trying to run the country like a business .After all ,that is what he is ,a business man and not so good at that either because he went bankrupt a few times ,to then be saved by the Rothschild enterprise.
He does not know shit about foreign policy and / or history ,in my opinion .I don't hold much hope for the Western empire and the US dollar for that matter .
The crash of the US dollar would probably be another method for disclosure of the 9/11 perps.
If you have any spare coins , gold might be a good investment .China and Russia are loading up on the precious metal heavily . They probably are hedging their bets that there will be a major change in currency values in the near future .

Here's what needs to be done according to the Law...

18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason
[Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)]

GC...I also have trouble swallowing the idea of "Reconciliation" because the consciences of this kind of evil has been pervasive for FAR TOO LONG FOR THE WORLD. It needs to be PURGED...and hanging them would be far TOO COMPASSIONATE. There are simply no words that can describe the ABOMINATIONS that have been perpetrated since then...never mind WWII, KOREA, VIETNAM, JFK, RFK, MLK, MX, and on down the same worn out path our history has fallen. SHAME doesn't cover the faces of this barbarism so only DEATH should set the example for anyone thinking otherwise. The world is tired of being oppressed by this SHITTY SHAMEFUL country called the USA...never mind a citizen wishing for its end. (and that would be me)

Hi Anonymous:

Technically, you're absolutely right. The Law SHOULD always prevail. However, Americans have to face up to the fact that there IS no law in the United States anymore. There is pseudo-law that is imposed on the average citizens and middle class to keep them in line...but as far as corporate crime, governmental [including security agency] or military crime...there is NO law.

So. In the absence of law what do you do? What CAN you do? The only thing that you can do is ask for truth. Truth acts like an antiseptic or like sunshine. It kills germs. The hope is that once truth has done its work then the rule of law can be re-established. In fact, the germs/perps will plea for a re-established rule of law because the law is much more merciful than raw justice--which is what will be meted out to them once the Truth is out.

I don't know about you but just about any solution is preferable to this stasis that the West has been held in since 9/11. As Christopher Bollyn says in a video I will be posting shortly...Americans have been held captive ever since 9/11.

Thank you GC, I appreciate your reply. Here is an example (yes I see your eyes rolling already) of the treasonous in your face criminal POS elected (not by me) official response to a petition from If Americans Knew concerning the recent 38 Billion aid to Israel asking our senators to veto the bill. Never does one get a sincere reply but a form letter...and in this case a form letter suggesting that I am pro Israel:

Hello IAK,

Here was my (form letter) response from Senator on the 38 billion aid package to Israel. He took it from the pro Israel criminals and applied it to me. Absolutely criminal. You just don’t know what I wish for these treasonous criminals who are literally operating on their own accord. Why would I send a letter if I was pro Israel knowing all too well their anti American stance? Treason is the only word for it. LBJ should have had the death penalty for treason concerning the USS Liberty…

Dear Ms. ******:

Thank you for contacting me about continued U.S. military assistance to Israel. I appreciate the opportunity to respond.

Throughout my career in public service, I have been a stalwart supporter of Israel. As our closest ally in a region faced with increasing instability, our relationship with Israel is more important than ever. Israel serves as a beacon of democracy for the region, and I have consistently encouraged a strong relationship between our two countries.

I have long supported direct aid to support Israeli security and advocated for a renewed partnership between Israel and the U.S. in the face of changing threats in the Middle East. In April 2016, I wrote to President Obama supporting the administration’s efforts to finalize a new security assistance Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Israel—and I will support robust funding as the Senate considers appropriations legislation so that we can meet our obligations outlined in the MOU. As threats like the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) increase, it is essential that the United States helps Israel preserve its military superiority over destabilizing regional actors.

I will continue to be a strong advocate for legislation that protects Israel’s security. I appreciate your advocacy for one of our most important allies, and I will keep your thoughts in mind as the Senate considers relevant legislation.

Thank you again for contacting me.
