The Philippines Wants Canada to Clean Up its Own Trash

Published

on

ZeroHedge reports that Rodrigo Duterte, the President of the Philippines, demands that garbage containers originating from Canada be shipped back to the country.

This is the latest controversy emerging from a dispute over more than 100 containers of trash that landed in the Philippines between 2013 and 2014. A Canadian company allegedly shipped these containers illegally.

The Canadian government previously agreed to these terms, but has been slow in fulfilling its end of the deal. In response to Canada’s sluggish actions, Duterte threated to leave the trash in Canadian waters if it refused to take it back. According to Salvador Panelo, a spokesman for Duterte, the president was “upset” by Canada’s delay in shipping the garbage back after Canada missed a key deadline on May 15.

The Philippine government is looking into hiring a private shipping company to move the garbage back to Canada, on the Philippine government’s dime.

Panelo continued relaying the Philippine government’s displeasure with the Canadian government’s actions.

The Philippines is an independent sovereign nation [and] must not be treated as trash by other foreign nations. We hope this message resonates well with other countries of the world.

The spokesman then said that the trash would be dumped in Canada’s territorial waters, which are 12 miles from Canada’s shore.

The containers that arrived in the Philippines were supposed to have plastics for recycling purposes. However, once delivered, this shipment actually contained newspapers, water bottles, diapers and other forms of waste.

In April, Duterte complained saying that “They have been sending their trash to us. Well, not this time. We will quarrel with each other. So what if we quarrel with Canada? We’ll declare war against them, we can beat them.”

Duterte advised the northern nation to “prepare a grand reception” for the incoming garbage. He ultimately doesn’t care what Canada does with it. Duterte suggested that Canadians could “eat it” if they so choose.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
