(National Sentinel) Espionage: A week after Harvard rescinded an offer to Chelsea, a.k.a. Bradley, Manning to be a visiting fellow, the Canadian government has refused to allow him/her to enter the country.
As reported by the Washington Times, Canadian border officials denied him/her entry into the country because what he/she was convicted of in the U.S. amounts to treason north of the border.
In a tweet announcing the ban, he/she included a picture of a letter from Canadian immigration authorities who explained their actions.
“If committed in Canada this offence would equate to an indictable offence, namely treason,” said the letter.
The Associated Press noted further that the head of Canada’s Public Safety Ministry, Ralph Goodale, said he wasn’t inclined to immediately reverse a border official’s decision.
“No such request has been made to me with respect to that matter,” Goodale said. “And, when a Canada Border Services officer has exercised appropriately within their jurisdiction the judgment that they are called upon to make, I don’t interfere in that process in any kind of a light or cavalier manner.”
As the AP reminded us:
The transgender woman was known as Bradley Manning when she was convicted in 2013 of leaking a trove of classified documents. She was released after serving seven years of a 35-year sentence, which was commuted by President Barack Obama in his final days in office.
The Left wasn’t outraged by this pardon, mind you. They saved it for when President Donald J. Trump pardoned long-serving Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose major offense was offending the sensibilities of liberal activists in Obama’s Justice Department because he dared to enforce immigration laws in the state of Arizona as written.
Meanwhile, all Manning — a U.S. Army specialist at the time — did was betray his oath and his country. At least Canadians understand what an outrageous crime he/she committed and that it endangered their national security as well as ours, consider the close intelligence relationship between the two countries.
Now, if he/she sneaks into Canada illegally, the American Left will elevate him to cult status.
