An internal Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) investigation, conducted by retired Major-General Daniel Gosselin, has concluded that the military’s top brass took advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to launch a propaganda campaign modeled on the disinformation operations the CAF mounted while waging counterinsurgency war in Afghanistan. However, this time the intended target was the Canadian public.
In July 2020, the Ottawa Citizen revealed that on April 8, 2020, two weeks after the CAF had announced it was deploying 24,000 CAF personnel to assist the government during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Joint Operations Command (CJOC) launched an “information operation.” This euphemism referred to a propaganda campaign aimed at “shaping” public opinion as fears grew in the military of a “worst-case scenario” related to the pandemic—that is, mass popular anger and civil unrest. (See Canada’s military launched operation to “shape” opinion amid pandemic)
The stated objectives of the propaganda campaign were to strengthen confidence in the government and to suppress social opposition. According to the admissions of several CAF officers, the operation was based on methods Canada’s military had developed in Afghanistan to coerce villagers into supporting the regime established by the United States and its western imperialist allies, Canada included, after their neocolonial invasion of the country in 2001.
According to Gosselin, the CAF high command saw the pandemic as a “unique opportunity” to test propaganda techniques on the Canadian population. To illustrate this, Gosselin quotes Vice Admiral Brian Santarpia, then chief of staff of the CJOC, as saying, “This is really a learning opportunity for all of us and a chance to start integrating information operations into our routine.”
In this context, the acknowledged links between the CAF’s propaganda operations on Canadian soil and those it conducted in Afghanistan cannot be ignored. Canadian imperialism is bringing home to Canada the tactics it employed in seeking to subjugate an Afghan population hostile to foreign occupation.

Re The logo of Ukraine's Defence Intelligence Main Directorate features an Owl holding a sword above Russia.
Do the colors mean anything...facing the owl left side Black & right side White?
Bat is a symbol of Russian Spetsnaz.
In particular, the Ukrainian businessman and public figure Valery Pekar called the emblem "level 800 trolling" of aggressive Russia.
1. Russian intelligence motto - "Above us – only stars," Ukrainian – "Wise to rule the stars."
2. Symbol of the Russian intelligence – a bat, Ukrainian – an owl (guess who she eats).
3. Well, to be sure, the owl plunges the sword in the map Russia."
Besides owls, Internet users have paid attention to the logo of Counterintelligence Department of the Special Service of Ukraine (SBU). It depicts an eagle, overcoming the snake with two crowned bird's heads, similar to two-headed eagle on Russian coat of arms.
'Trolling lvl 800': Ukrainian Intel logo upsetting Kremlin, explained
The new Ukrainian military intelligence agency was in fact built upon the existing intelligence assets of Kyiv, Odessa, Carpathian military districts, air-defence army, 17th Air Army, portion of the Black Sea Fleet, and center-controlled units.
On July 6, 1993, the Decree of the President of Ukraine gave start to merging of the Intelligence Directorate of the General Headquarters and the Strategic Military Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine into the Main Military Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine.
On April 14, 1994, in compliance with the Decree of President of Ukraine, the Main Military Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine was renamed into the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine (DIU). Since that day, Ukraine’s comprehensive, effective, and multilevel military intelligence system began developing.
History of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine
The human skin contains millions of sweat glands, connected to the pores at the surface through tiny sweat ducts, which could reveal the emotional state of a person without making physical contact by bouncing electromagnetic waves off them. While most people believe that these tiny ducts are straight tubes, a study conducted by Israeli researchers reveal that they are actually helical.
When you look at this through the eyes of an electrical engineer, it is very familiar. It immediately ignited the thinking that perhaps they also behave as helical antenna," says Aharon Agranat of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. However, in order to do so these ducts must conduct electricity. Because they are filled with sweat, it might be possible to induce electrical current into them with the help of medium-frequency electromagnetic waves.
At high frequencies, electrical current is conducted through the ducts through a process called 'proton hopping', as protons oscillate rapidly through the hydrogen bonds near the surface of the cells. If one considers the human skin as a helical antenna, then physiological measurements can be conducted from a distance, says Yuri Feldman, initiator of the study.
During experiments, the researching team used electromagnetic frequencies with a range of 100 gigahertz, in order to measure the frequency of the electromagnetic wave reflected off the skin of subjects, before and after exercise, as perspiration is directly linked to physiological parameters, such as blood pressure and pulse rate.
The measurements revealed that the modeled skin containing helical antennas were in concordance with the received signals. To be certain that the theory is correct, the team first made measurements in contact with the skin of the subjects. However, even when the detector was located 22 centimeters way from the subject, it was still able to make accurate readings.
You could make a lie detector that does not require any connections to the person being tested," said Agranat.
In the interaction of microwave radiation and human beings, the skin is traditionally considered as just an absorbing sponge stratum filled with water. In previous works, we showed that this view is flawed when we demonstrated that the coiled portion of the sweat duct in upper skin layer is regarded as a helical antenna in the sub-THz band. Experimentally we showed that the reflectance of the human skin in the sub-THz region depends on the intensity of perspiration, i.e. sweat duct's conductivity, and correlates with levels of human stress (physical, mental and emotional).
Starting from July 2016 the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted new rules for wireless broadband operations above 24 GHz (5 G). This trend of exploitation is predicted to expand to higher frequencies in the sub-THz region. One must consider the implications of human immersion in the electromagnetic noise, caused by devices working at the very same frequencies as those, to which the sweat duct (as a helical antenna) is most attuned. We are raising a warning flag against the unrestricted use of sub-THz technologies for communication, before the possible consequences for public health are explored.

📣From Alexander Lukashevich's speech
"On Ukraine's crimes against the civilian population and the unacceptable reaction of Western countries to Russia's special military operation"
The root of today's crisis in Ukraine is not a Russian special military operation. The situation in Donbass and Ukraine is a consequence of the desire of the US-led NATO to use 🇺🇦 to create real threats to national security and discourage 🇷🇺Russia.
Following the criminal decisions of the Kiev regime to free criminals from 🇺🇦 prisons and free distribution of firearms in the cities of Ukraine, 🧨 armed gangs of marauders and robbers are unleashed, shooting ordinary citizens without warning.
❗️🇷🇺The army does not threaten the civilian population in Ukraine, it does not bomb civilian infrastructure.
An information war has broken out against 🇷🇺. Objects destroyed by the Armed Forces of 🇺🇦 and the nationalist battalions in the DPR and LPR are presented by the Western media as the consequences of our military operation in Ukraine, replicating falsely about the alleged indiscriminate bombing 💣 of Ukrainian cities.
During the 💣 of the ex. Yugoslavia in 1999 NATO countries hid behind humanitarian causes. So why did he do it. do they not express their indignation at the war unleashed by Kiev against the inhabitants of the east 🇺🇦 for 8 years, when the residential areas fell under the blows of artillery and multiple rocket launchers?
After the 2014 coup, Western countries only encouraged Kiev to inhuman actions, inflating the country with weapons, sending military instructors there and pushing them to armed provocations against the residents in defense of the Donbass, who did not attack 🇺🇦
We consider the statements by several NATO countries on new military supplies to Ukraine as a continuation of the irresponsible policy aimed at inciting a military escalation in the country 🇺🇦
The Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a televised "warning" to the United States today, saying that if we continue to send ships through the Taiwan Strait, and encourage Taiwan Independence, our military deterrent "will be turned into scrap iron."
Here's the video, see and listen for yourselves:

Problem for this line of progress as I see it: if you put any significant amount of conducting material / metal / some carbon compounds into your body, you are then more vulnerable to an EMP type attack.
You can be taken out easier, if needed. "Deleted" ???
EDIT TO ADD: Oh, and not just EMP attacks ... extreme solar flares would also be a problem, and perhaps unpredictably so!

Isn't this QAnon stuff just another false flag movement? And if not originally, then at what point was it co-opted by the Deep State? If Trump continues to leverage it and ultimately lead it, then you know it's not a genuine truth movement. You've just been fooled again!!
