US official: Ukrainian military ‘on edge’ as potential Russian invasion looms

The Ukrainian military is “on edge” and “more stressed” as the prospect for a Russian invasion of the country appears to strengthen, a U.S. official told Fox News Friday.

“The Ukrainian military is on edge tonight,” the official said. “I have never heard them more stressed than during calls today.”

The State Department is making calls to some of the 30,000 American citizens who remain in Ukraine, urging them to vacate the country within the next 24-48 hours, the official said.

Several warnings, including one from the State Department, have urged Americans to depart from Ukraine “as soon as possible.”

Fox News correspondent Lucas Tomlinson contributed to this update.

Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley held a series of phone calls on Friday with several of his foreign counterparts, including that of Russia, to address security-related concerns amid rising tensions in Ukraine.

readout of Milley’s call with Chief of Russian General Staff Gen. Valery Gerasimov noted the two military leaders “discussed several security-related issues of concern” and did not offer additional details on what was discussed.

In addition, Milley held phone calls with his counterparts from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, and the United Kingdom.

Milley’s office said the leaders discussed “items of mutual security concern, including ongoing coordination during the adjustment of U.S. force posture in Europe.”

Brethren – this may turn uglier than anyone is expecting. The clown in our White House instills NO fear in the hearts of leadership of Russia and China.

Uncle Joe has purposely weakened our Military and many countries look at us as if we are a joke.

Both sides of my family are from Kiev, Ukraine. My great grandparents came over around 1903. I also had a uncle who was in the “Party” and of course, lived in Russian.

But God’s Will be done! He alone is in control. TRUST HIM!



Court Freezes $8 Million for Freedom Convoy Raised on GiveSendGo

GiveSendGo says Canada has ‘ZERO jurisdiction’

The government of the province of Ontario in Canada on Thursday successfully sought a court order to freeze over US$8 million in funds made to the Freedom Convoy on the GiveSendGo platform.

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice ordered that all donations made through the “Freedom Convoy 2022” and “Adopt a trucker” campaigns on the Christian fundraising platform be frozen until further notice, according to a statement from Premier Doug Ford’s office.

The statement said Ontario Attorney General Doug Downey brought the application for the restraint order, in which 490.8 of the Criminal Code was cited as grounds to freeze the funds. The section reads, in part: “The Attorney General may make an application … for a restraint order … in respect of any offence-related property.”

Ivana Yelich, spokesperson for the premier, said the order “binds any and all parties with possession or control over these donations.”

In a statement on Twitter, GiveSendGo wrote in an apparent response to the court order, “Know this! Canada has absolutely ZERO jurisdiction over how we manage our funds here at GiveSendGo.”

It adds, “All funds for EVERY campaign on GiveSendGo flow directly to the recipients of those campaigns, not least of which is The Freedom Convoy campaign.”

John Carpay, president of the legal group Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which is providing legal help to the Freedom Convoy organizers, told The Epoch Times that their lawyers are looking into the issue.

The protest started in late January as a demonstration by truckers against the federal government’s requirement for cross-border truck drivers to be vaccinated, but has since evolved into a large movement joined by people from across Canada to oppose different COVID-19 mandates and restrictions.

Vehicle convoys came to Ottawa on Jan. 29, and many have stayed in the city, with trucks and other vehicles parked by Parliament Hill. Since then, various protest convoys have been set up in different parts of Canada.

Protesters in Ottawa say they won’t leave until the government lifts COVID-19 mandates.

More than US$8 million had been raised through GoFundMe before the platform said on Feb. 4 it would stop payments and forward the money to charities instead, before changing course on Feb. 5 and announcing it would automatically reimburse the funds to donors.

Following the GoFundMe announcements, protest convoy organizers set up the “Freedom Convoy 2022” fundraiser on GiveSendGo.

Several U.S. Republicans subsequently raised concernsabout GoFundMe’s removal of the funds for the trucker protest.

The demonic globalists are flexing their muscles. Brethren, they will probably win here, but will spend eternity in a fiery hell if they don’t repent and be saved.
