ISIS AGAIN claims responsibility for Toronto mass shooting

Way back in July -- how quickly we forget -- a lone gunman opened fire into a crowd into a crowd of restaurant-goers on Danforth Avenue, in Toronto's famous Greektown, killing two innocent people and wounding 15 before turning the gun on himself. No shouts of "Allahu akbar!" were heard, and the identity of the killer was suppressed by the police and lamestream media. Walt was one of many who speculated that Faisal Hussain -- for that was his name -- was an Islamic extremist. See "Non-gangsta gunman shoots 14 in Toronto", WWW 23/7/18.

The official politically correct government line, right from the get-go, was that Mr Hussain was mentally ill. That he happened to be an Afghan "newcomer" and a follower of the prophet was just a coincidence. Within hours, hours of the release of the accused's name, a professionally-written statement, in proper English, was sent out "on behalf of the Hussain family", explaining that "our son had severe mental health challenges, struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life."

The statement was written by Mohammed [What else? Ed.] Hashim, a full-time organizer for the Toronto & York Region Labour Council. Social media accounts belonging to Mr Hashim show him heavily involved in supporting NDP (= "social democratic") candidates both federally and provincially in Ontario. He's also described as a driving force behind the National Council of Canadian Muslims. See "Meet the spin doctor behind the Hussain family statement", by Anthony Furey, in the Toronto Sun, 25/7/18.

Walt's bullshit meter went right off the scale on that one, the more so when, on the very same day, ISIS/ISIL claimed responsibility for the vicious attack. See "'Allahu akbar!' ISIS claims responsibility for Greektown shooting", WWW 25/7/18. One of Canada's "independent" broadcasters (but not the state-owned Canadian Broadcorping Castration) passing on a quote from the Islamic terrorists' AMAQ news agency, which referred to Mr Hussain as "a soldier of the Islamic State" who "carried out the attack in response to calls to target the citizens of the coalition countries."

Although one must always take claims from ISIS/ISIL cum grano salis, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders put extra lipstick on the pig, saying his force's investigation had uncovered "no evidence to support these claims." The government called in the usual gang of "terrorism experts" to warn against accepting the ISIL claim at face value. "We'll look into it further, but don't expect a conclusion other than that Hussain was such a wild and crazy guy. Nothing to see here, folks."

Ah yes... we're looking into it... the default response of "the authorities" to anything that doesn't accord with the liberal line that Islam is a religion of peace, there's no jihad going on, and "diversity is our strength" (gaggg). Indeed, the investigation is still "active and ongoing", according to an affidavit filed by the Toronto police in response to an application in Ontario's Superior Court by several news outlets to smash the cone of silence and unseal details of the search warrants in the case. The cops are fighting to prevent the release of the information "to ensure the integrity of the investigation is maintained." Oh, hahahahahaha...

Meanwhile, this past Sunday, a propaganda video released by pro-Islamic State media named July's atrocity as IS's "most successful foreign operation of the year." The video by the Al-Abd Al-Faqir Media Foundation mimics a corporate year-end review of operations. Called "Harvest of the Lone Lions", it features excerpts from the most recent speech by Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS/ISIL, in which he praises attackers in the West, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

The information on the Toronto attack includes imagery taken from mainstream media after the shooting, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaking to the media. The rating and casualty information is superimposed over an animated scene of a tattered Canadian flag in a burning urban landscape.

As noted above, this is not the first such claim by IS. Nor is it the second. This is the third claim connecting the deadly attack to ISIS/ISIL, but still the Canuck authorities say they have no evidence from ISIL or its media affiliates that the gunman acted on behalf of any organizations. Requests from the Canuck meeja for comment on this latest claim have so far not been answered. M-103.

VIDEO: "Join the Catholic Church and go to hell!"

Father John Hollowell is a Roman Catholic priest, serving in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. On YouTube he has 13,000 followers, and counting. He is not yet a "rad trad" (see yesterday's post "Vatican cover-up of homosexual crimes leaves no choice for Catholics -- leave the Church or join us 'rad trads'" -- includes great video by Michael Matt) but it sounds to me he knows and keeps to the faith of our fathers (living still in spite of dungeon, fire and Francis) so will have to give Michael Matt's exhortation some serious consideration.

In this video, Fr Hollowell deconstructs and refutes three mistaken beliefs that many Protestants and other non-Catholics have about the Catholic Faith. Those who hate, or at least disagree with Catholicism quote Holy Scripture to "prove" that Catholics are wrong in their beliefs and practices. They refer, in particular, to these three passages from the Gospels. (I am using the Protestant King James Version to avoid any quibbles about the exact words.)

Matthew 23:9 - And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
John 6:54 - Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Matthew 16:18 - And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Those are the words of Jesus, the Son of God, and those who opposed Catholicism argue that we are wrong in how we interpret them. Father Hollowell explains where the Catholic interpretation comes from and why the meaning believed by Catholics for nearly 2000 years is to be preferred.

Note: For those who were wondering... The "RCIA" to which Father refers at the beginning is the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (Ordo Initiationis Christianae Adultorum), a process developed by the Church for prospective converts who are above the age of infant baptism. Two of Walt's agents have been teachers in this programme. Getting back to today's crisis in the Church, the problem nowadays seems to be finding someone who wants to be taught!

VIDEO: Vatican cover-up of homosexual crimes leaves no choice for Catholics -- leave the Church or join us "rad trads"

Earlier this week, the Vatican gave a belated and totally inadequate response to the allegations of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, whose Testimony asserts that Pope Francis knew years ago of the activities of Cardinal McCarrick, the homosexual predator, and did nothing about the scandalous situation. What is the Holy Father's plan? Wait for it... He has "called the leaders of the world's episcopal conferences to Rome, to speak about the prevention of abuse of minors and vulnerable adults". Errr, that's it.

Yes, dear Catholic (and other) friends, you read that right. More than five years after Francis announced his plan to set up a special commission to recommend plans and policies for "the prevention of abuse of minors and vulnerable adults", the situation has, if anything, worsened. So what to do? Have another meeting! And did I mention when the meeting will be held? In February of next year! Until then, according to the Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago, the Pope will be too busy talking about climate change and being nice to refugees. "We won't be going down that rabbit hole!" (Actual quote from Cardinal Cupich. See "Cardinal Cupich goes off the deep end", with excellent video by Michael Matt, WWW 4/9/18.)

The TOR (Terms Of Reference) for the meeting look to have been drawn up by a team of Vatican lawyers -- the type of men who can pick fly-specks out of pepper with boxing gloves on. The scope of the meeting is carefully limited to preclude any discussion of the plague of sodomy between priests and "consenting adults" aged 18 or over. That leaves plenty of room for actively homosexual priests, bishops, cardinals and... others... to continue their activity.

Francis obviously has no intention of addressing the influence of a homosexual network among the clergy unless its activity involves an actual rape prosecutable under civil law. Even then, however, the cover-ups will continue as much as possible in the current climate of public scrutiny. The Gay Mafia wins again!

So... time for another video -- the second I've reposted this month -- featuring Michael J. Matt, editor of The Remnant newspaper. In "Michael Matt talks about calls for Pope Francis to resign, calls Archbishop Viganò 'Instrument of Divine Intervention'", WWW 2/9/18, I said "Mr Matt just keeps getting better and better. Perhaps he is driven to outdo himself by the increasingly parlous state of the Roman Catholic Church." In his latest video, Mr Matt not only steps outside the box but also smashes it to bits as he analyses what's really going on with the clerical sex abuse crisis.

"What is the Viganò Effect? How do Vatican II and the New Mass come into this? With the Catholic Church clearly occupied, should faithful Catholics just join the lynch mob? What's a faithful Catholic to do?" You'll find Mr Matt's carefully reasoned answer in the last few minutes. Dear Catholic readers, the time has come!

"Catholicism After 2018", by Rusty Reno, editor of First Things, October 2018. Don't let the "nothing" title fool you. This is about the culture of denial of homoclericalism -- a homosexual subculture in the Catholic clergy as the core issue underlying recent sex abuse scandals assailing the Roman Catholic Church.

"Mad Max" announces formation of new pro-Canada conservative party

Switzerland has its Swiss People's Party. Austria has its Austrian People's Party. And now, at last, there's a People's Party of Canada for all the Canucks who are fed up with the so-called Conservative Party of Canada, which really is the "alt-Liberal" party -- same as the Trudeau gang only with an older and slightly whiter face.

Yes, Maxime Bernier, who left the Somewhat Conservatives to sit as the independent Member of Parliament for Beauce, has made good on his promise to founding of a new party prepared to stand up for conservative and Canadian values.

"Mad Max" today announced the formation of the People's Party of Canada: www.peoplespartyofcanada.ca. M Bernier says he wants the new party to fight for free-market values as well defend ordinary citizens against the power of special interest groups. In prepared remarks, he said the PPC will "respect our traditions, our history, and what makes Canada a unique place in the world, without trying to forcibly change it like the current Liberal government is doing."

The name translates easily into French too, so I think Max is going to try to work both sides of the street/la rue, which is as it should be. The lamestream media don't like to say it, but there's more anti-immigrant feeling in Québec (outside of Montréal) than places like the soi-disant Greater Toronto Area, so the PPC should get a lot of traction there quickly. All they need now is to get the rest of Ontario and the rest of Canada on board. Walt wishes Mad Max bonne chance!

"Europe belongs to Europeans!" - Dalai Lama (!)

As reported here on WWW, Sweden had a general election last weekend. One of the main ballot questions (if not the main ballot question), was what to do with the "refugees", asylum-seekers and other migrants flooding into the country. The rightist Sweden Democrats, whose policy is to turn them back at the borders or send them back where they came from, did well, although not as well as hoped.

In a masterpiece of coincidental timing, the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of millions of Tibetan Buddhists, weighed in on the subject on Wednesday. If he had spoken out before the election, he might well have been accused by the lefties and SJWs of meddling, for what he said came as a shock to the do-good weenies who are assisting the suicide of Europe.

Visiting Sweden to celebrate the 80th anniversary of its international anti-poverty efforts, the Dalai Lama asseerted that refugees should be repatriated to they can rebuild the shitholes ["lands", shurely! Ed.] they came from. Why? Because, the holy man told the earnest one-worlders, "Europe belongs to the Europeans!"

Speaking in the multicultural city of Malmö, where Iraqis are the single biggest ethnic group and native-born Swedes are in the minority, the Nobel Prize laureat said Sweden is seen as "a peaceful, generally prosperous country” with a relatively small gap between rich and poor." But then, according to Norrköpings Tidningar, he "spontaneously moved on to talk about one of the biggest issues in the Swedish election — the reception of refugees."

Noting that a large number of immigrants have settled in Europe from the Middle East and elsewhere, he said it was good for nations to help "a refugee really facing danger against their life" -- a subtle suggestion that some of the "refugees" coming to Europe were actually economic migrants. "Receive them, help them, educate them, the holy man concluded, "but ultimately they should develop their own country."

Syrian refugee charged with murder of 13-year-old BC girl

This is... or was... Marrisa Shen, a girl from Burnaby BC who didn't live to see her 14th birthday.

She was last seen leaving her apartment building around 1800 on 18 July 2017. Surveillance footage later showed the teenager entering a nearby Tim Hortons minutes after she left her apartment across from the city's Central Park. She stayed there for an hour and a half. Her family reported her missing to police at 2330, and her body was found in the brush in the southeast corner of the park a little more than an hour later. Police have not revealed how she was killed, nor if she was sexually assaulted.

Last Friday, Ibrahim Ali, 28, of Burnaby was charged with the first-degree murder of the young girl. The sum total of what the police and the lamestream media are saying about the accused is that he is "a Syrian national and permanent Canadian resident" who arrived in Canada "17 months ago". By my calendar, that would be around Valentine's Day of 2017, or about four months before Marrisa was killed. He was arrested in Burnaby on Sept. 7.

Disregarding M-103, Walt has some innocent questions: What is Mr Ali's religion? Is he by any chance a follower of the Prophet? Is he one of the 50,000 Syrian refugees that the arch-virtue-signaller Justin Trudeau, brought to Canada in a fit of misguided humanitarianism? If not, how did he get to be a permanent resident so quickly? What was Mr Ali's employment status at the time of his arrest? Was he working, or sponging off Canadian taxpayers like so many of the other 49,999?

A prize will be given for the first reader to spot the word "refugee" in any version of this story appearing in the Canadian media. Send a .pdf file or screenshot to Ed. at the usual address. Earliest time stamp wins.

UPDATE ADDED 1800: The contest announced above is over. Our very own Ed. hunted up the Vancouver Sun and found "Ibrahim Ali, 28, charged with first-degree murder of Burnaby teen Marrisa Shen", which includes this paragraph: Ali is a Syrian national and a permanent resident who came to Canada 17 months ago, Richardson said. She did not know whether he was a privately-sponsored or government-assisted refugee, but believed he does have family in Burnaby and is employed. As if there was any doubt about the "refugee" part.... The last two words came as a surprise though.

FURTHER VIEWING, added 11/9/18: Here's the report (with full credit to the Vancouver Sun) by Sheila Gunn Reid of The Rebel.Media.

Right-wing Sweden Democrats make big gains in election

The ballot question in yesterday's general election in Sweden was immigration, and the resultant rise in crime and decline in standards in the world's foremost cradle-to-grave nanny state. Proportionately, Sweden took in even more bogus refugees, asylum-seekers and other undesirables in the tsunami of 2015 than Angela Merkel's Germany. With a population of 10 million, the Swedes welcomed a record 163,000 mostly Muslim migrants in 2015 — the highest per capita of any European country.

The result has been a spike in crime, perpetrated by the poor, disadvantaged "refugees". Large parts of cities like Stockholm and (especially) Malmö, have been declared "no-go zones", where the cops and other first responders fear to tread. Social services are under tremendous strain, as Swedish taxpayers are forced by their liberal government to pony up for welfare, health care and other benefits for the indigent newcomers. See "Ezra Levant tours the mean Muslim streets of Eurabia", WWW 24/3/16 and "Mark Steyn reveals what's really happening in Sweden", WWW 7/3/17. Both contain videos which should be eye-openers to those who think social democracy is the answer to everything, including racial and religious strife.

The Swedes are a pretty phlegmatic, not to say dour lot, and until recently have been almost as docile as the Canadian sheeple in their acceptance of the liberal dogma that all these foreigners are good people and will be a real asset to the host country if treated properly. But lately, increasing numbers of native-born Swedes have become fed up, and are being attracted to the new(ish) Sweden Democrats, who entered the country's parliament in 2014 with 49 seats.

The mainstream parties, who have coalesced into two blocs (the Social Democrats and the Moderates) to fight the SD, claim that the Sweden Democrats are neo-Nazis, racists, Islamophobes, white supremacists, yada yada yada -- the same crap you hear from the "progressive" and antifa types about Trump Republicans.

You can imagine the consternation of the liberals and lefties, then, when pre-election polling showed the Sweden Democrats with a chance (albeit slim) of winning yesterday's election, and a real chance of finishing second, which would leave them holding the balance of power in a parliament where neither bloc commanded a majority.

Well, the results are in, and support for the SD hit a record high. They saw their share of the vote rise from 12.9% in 2014 to 17.6% in Sunday's poll -- the largest gain by any party in the Riksdag. That should translate to 63 seats, a gain of 14 from 2014. The SD leader Jimmie Akesson told his supporters, "We will gain huge influence over what happens in Sweden during the coming weeks, months and years."

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven's left-leaning Social Democratic bloc, as well as the centre-right Moderate bloc, emerged with roughly 40% each, well short of a majority. The prime minister's party lost 13 seats in parliament – their worst result in a century. That leaves the anti-SD types in an awkward position, since both have sworn not to invite the SD to join in a coalition, yet cannot agree to work together. That leaves the Sweden Democrats with the balance of power. They may yet succeed in getting Sweden back for Swedes!
