Justin Trudeau’s “Chopper of Rights”

December 3, 2016 

By Kari Simpson

Justin Trudeau’s willingness to bend over and acquiesce to the demands of sex activists has reached a new low.

According to sex activist and lawyer Douglas Elliott’s Statement of Claim, Green Zombies in rainbow tutus participating in a Pride parade are more than scary! Not only was Elliott himself as a Toronto parade marcher affected, but our Prime Minister, the Attorney General of Canada, and the tens of thousands of people who attended or participated in the Toronto Pride Parade apparently suffered extreme “harm,” “trauma” or “mental distress”—whether they know it or not. This is because Bill Whatcott and a few Christian Truth activists, who paid their entry fees under the name of the “Gay Zombies Cannabis Consumers Association” and dressed up as neon green zombies with rainbow tutus, handed out flyers wrapped to look like condoms. For this they are being sued for $104 million dollars.

It is true that the flyer handed out to the happy crowd contained a bold and graphic political message about the health risks associated with the practice of sodomy, and noted the Liberal Party of Canada’s determined path to put children at risk.

There’s no doubt that the facts in the flyer damaged the propagandist machine of the sex activists. Truth will do that, and this threatens the ability of sex activist organizations to continue to milk the government coffers dry and bamboozle trusting Canadians.

The reality in Canada is that Men having Sex with Men (“MSM”) is costing tax-payers billions of dollars a year. This is a direct result of their indulgence in socially irresponsible behaviours, and then demanding your tax dollars to sustain themselves and hundreds of so-called “non-profit” organizations and “trusts” that cater to their needs, appetites, lawsuits, health costs and political lobbying.

Like most Canadians, I don’t want the government dictating what is permissible in the bedrooms of the nation. BUT when those bedrooms continually grab at my wallet, and that behaviour puts children and minors at risk, and those activities increasingly are being engaged in public spaces, that changes this political game.

Socially irresponsible and unnatural sexual practices like sodomy are creating a public health crisis and infecting and killing young men by the thousands every year. Canadians have a right to be informed. According to Public Health Agency of Canada: One-quarter of all HIV diagnoses in Canada were in youth aged 15 to 29.

According to national surveillance data collected between 1985 and 2014:

  • 20,235 youth (aged 15 to 29) have been diagnosed with HIV in Canada.
  • Just over one-quarter (26%) of all HIV diagnoses (of people whose age was known) were youth aged 15 to 29 years.
  • Three-quarters (75%) of all HIV diagnoses among youth were male.

Those statistics relate just to “youth.” According to the agency, the total number of people living with HIV (including those with AIDS) in Canada is estimated to be, as of 2014, approximately 75,500 (range between 63,400 and 87,600). This estimate represents a 9.7% increase from the estimated 68,800 (range between 57,600 and 80,000) at the end of 2011.

Syphilis is on the rise, along with Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia. Rates of Syphilis infections between 2003 and 2012 have increased 100% with the majority of infections occurring from MSM. Don’t forget about Anal Warts, Hepatitis C, Anal Cancer, and Genital Herpes. Oh, and did you know the sex activists community is lobbying right now for you to pay for a drug regimen that can be used by men who engage in “risky” sex with virus positive guys or high risk partners to help reduce the odds of them contracting the virus – a mere $1000 or so per course of treatment!

Do you know that it is conservatively estimated that medical costs and loss of contribution to society costs taxpayers $1.4 million per episode, per person infected with HIV/AIDS? That is just the medical costs, BUT there is an industry that has boomed as a result: the taxpayer funded, friends of the government, squawk-boxing, non-profit organizations like AIDS Committee Toronto (“ACT”) that hold “Condom Stuffing Parties” with pizza provided(!) and you pay for it!   According to Revenue Canada reporting period March 31, 2016, a hefty $2,676,577 of government funding (your money) was given to ACT. The Health Initiative for Men (HIM), another sex activist organization, received $500,000 from the BC government to create a hard-core gay porn video that was linked as a “Youth Resource” to one of the programs being used to combat “bullying” in schools. (You get the idea, more on this another time. Back to Whatcott…)

Lawyer Douglas Elliott and his “legal team” at Cambridge Law LLP, including lawyers Chris Macloud, Doug Fairley, Manjit Singh and Joan Kasozi are all busy sex activists. In addition to suing Mr. Whatcott for $104 million, Mr. Elliott is acting “Chair” and identified as one of the “authors” of the Just Society Report.   This 200+ page “Report” is the catalyst for the renewed efforts by sex activists to lower the age of consent for sodomy—an amendment to the Criminal Code that the Prime Minister has agreed to act upon.

The so-called “charitable organization” responsible for the Just Society Report is called the EGALE Human Rights Trust. This organization has received $887,075 of taxpayers’ money—your money. “Legal team Cambridge” members Fairley, Singh and Kasozi are also “acknowledged” as helping create the “Report,” along with Dr. Rev. Brent Hawkes, who is currently being tried criminally in Nova Scotia for engaging in sexual acts with teenage boys.

The “Report” isn’t limited to endangering minors. It also demands that amends be made and compensation paid to homosexuals who, in generations past, compromised the security of Canada by being vulnerable to blackmail and other tactics of coercion, and were for that reason removed from military service.

In addition to the demands made in the “Report” chaired and authored in part by Douglas Elliott, Mr. Elliott—now putting on his lawyer-hat—has also launched yet another class-action lawsuit, this time against the government—that is, against you and me.

According to Elliott’s law firm’s write-up about the case, the homosexual plaintiffs are seeking—quote—“General and Aggravated Damages claimed on behalf of the class in the sum of $500,000,000”—that’s half a billion dollars!—plus “exemplary damages are claimed in the amount of $100,000,000.” That’s a total of $600 million in a case referred to as “the Ross matter.” In a CBC interview, Elliott used this tactic to bully the government. He stated: “The lawsuit is intended to force the government to the bargaining table, but also to recognize that while the law and society have changed, attitudes within government, particularly in the military, are still hostile.”

Clearly, Big Gay gets to play while we taxpayers PAY.

That’s why you must help. All of us, as Canadians, are in a culture war; and good, hard-working Canadians are being forced by the enemy’s allies within the government to pay for our own demise! This has to stop.

The Whatcott case is where we, as Canadians, must throw down the gauntlet.

The next hearing date for the Whatcott case is set for February 8 – 9th, 2017. Currently the plaintiffs are busy trying to decide on whom they will cross-examine before the cut-off date imposed by Justice Perell. I just received notice (Dec 2, 2016) that I am now on their list. I guess the optics didn’t look so good for the plaintiffs at the last hearing when Bill Whatcott’s lawyers addressed their supplementary factum and my affidavit directed at the lies and misinformation contained in the plaintiffs factum and the affidavit of Hudspeth. In desperation to look legitimate they want to now “cross-examine” me on my affidavit. I somehow don’t think this is going to help their case; I understand Justice Perell is a very astute judge.

The true test of this ridiculous case will be whether or not the Ontario Court will indulge these sex activists in what is an obvious and vexatious abuse of the Justice system. As Canadians, we hear far too often that the judicial system needs more money, and that you, the taxpayer, must be willing to give still more. I say if cases like this are allowed to proceed, then it is the courts that ought to be the target of our outrage.

I’ve undertaken to make available to you the legal documents from both sides of this matter. These materials will be published on both BillWhatcott.com & CultureGuard.com. The judicial process, a process you pay for, should be open to public scrutiny, and technology today ensures this ability. I encourage you to familiarize yourselves with the factum written by Bill Whatcott’s legal counsel, Dr. Charles Lugosi. It’s brilliant, and should be mandatory reading for every Canadian over 17 years of age.

DENY THE LIE! – JUSTIN TRUDEAU & LIBERAL GOVT. ARE TRUTH-DENIERS By Arthur Topham

DENY THE  LIE! – JUSTIN TRUDEAU & LIBERAL GOVT. ARE TRUTH-DENIERS  

By Arthur  Topham

The Liberal Party of Canada under their new rookie Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are guilty of outright lying to the people of Canada about the alleged “6 Million Jews” who were supposed to have been “gassed” and “burnt” in German work camps during World War II.

Like clock-work the Prime  Minister’s Office (PMO) spits out announcements over and over stating that the “Nazis” murdered “millions” of “Jews” between 1939 – 1945. This is wilfully done by Justin Trudeau’s ‘advisors’ (i.e., read Zionist Jew handlers) who are firmly in control of both him and his party.

The latest repetition of this lie came forth from the PMO’s office yesterday, Wednesday, September 21, 2016. It reads:

Prime Minister of Canada welcomes progress on National Holocaust Monument

September 21, 2016
Ottawa, Ontario

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today participated in a site dedication ceremony for the National Holocaust Monument, which is being built at the corner of Wellington and Booth streets in Ottawa.

The Monument, which is scheduled to be unveiled in 2017, will honour the millions of Jews and other innocent victims who died in the Holocaust. It will also promote a better understanding of the historical events surrounding the Holocaust and how they affected Canada, and celebrate the tremendous contributions that Holocaust survivors have made to this country.

Quote

“It is important for Canadians and the rest of the world to remember the suffering and murder of millions of Jews and others in the Holocaust. We must never forget the stories of the victims, and the important lessons of the Holocaust. As Canadians and citizens of the world, we must fight the hatred and fear that once fuelled these deplorable acts, and ensure that tolerance and pluralism always triumph over anti-Semitism and racism. We must also pay tribute to the resilience of those who survived that horrific ordeal and went on to make enormous contributions here in Canada as well as many other countries around the world.”
—The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

“This national monument will stand as a testament to the suffering of the millions who lost their lives and families to the Holocaust and tell the stories of those who came to Canada to build a new life. The Monument will serve as a reminder to future generations of Canadians to keep the lessons of history alive in our country’s consciousness. We must never take for granted our freedom, diversity, and deep commitment to human rights.”
The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage

The question needs to asked over and over, “Why is the Liberal government emphasizing and repeatedly pushing this 6 Million Lie so much?

Is it because the Zionist lobbyists here in Canada like B’nai Brith and their USA Anti-Defamation League (ADL) counterpart the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada as well as the latest traitorous Israeli espionage agency the Centre for Israel & Jewish Affairs (CIJA), are beginning to panic because their 71 year old “6 Million” deception is now, thanks to the Internet and Social Media outlets like Facebook, so tattered and torn by the Truth that they’re frantically attempting to shore up this massive deception in any way possible?

It must be remembered that the Zionist Jew lobbyists here in Canada built their draconian “Hate Propaganda” laws, contained in Sections 318 – 320 of the Canadian Criminal Code, and now being used against Truth Revealers, on the baseless foundation of the “6 Million Jews” holocaust lie. This fact is documented in my March 29, 2014 article, Bad Moon Rising: How the Jewish Lobbies Created Canada’s “Hate Propaganda” Laws.

We’re seeing a quickening by the Jewish lobbyists in their last-ditch attempts to sustain their fraudulence and deception when it comes to the greatest lie ever told to the world. Could it be because more and more Canadians and especially German-Canadian citizens are finally standing up and speaking  out in defence of their ethnic homeland and especially in defence of Truth itself?

Monika Schaefer of Jasper, Alberta and Brian Ruhe of Vancouver, B.C. are two of the latest shining examples of German-Canadian truth revealers who’ve shown the courage of their convictions by speaking out on the net through their blogsites and their videos in order to inform Canadians and warn them against continuing to believe the Zionist-controlled mainstream media (MSM) and the Liberal government of Justin Trudeau.

There is also a concerted effort on the part of the B’nai Brith foreign lobby in Canada to destroy the livelihood and reputation of University of Lethbridge tenured Professor Anthony Hall by spreading lies on their website and in other Zionist-controlled media that are simply not true.

Could all of this be a prelude to the Liberal government possibly attempting to introduce “Holocaust Denial” laws into Canadian jurisprudence like the ones we see in occupied Germany today in order to stem the growing tide of Truth about what really happened during WWII and who the real perpetrators were?

Will Canada become the next Germany and start jailing its citizens for questioning historic events that have been created and spun throughout past history like gigantic spider webs of lies in order to keep the world in a state of perpetual ignorance?

It won’t take too long to find out given the times that we’re living in.

Conrad Black’s Zionist Newspaper chain (Lethbridge Herald) Accuses Professor Anthony Hall of “Hate Speech”

 

Conspiracy theories
By Lethbridge Herald
June 19, 2016

J.W. Schnarr
Lethbridge Herald
jwschnarr@lethbridgeherald.com

The University of Lethbridge is defending a professor’s right to use his position to promote conspiracy theories online, including the idea that the 2014 Parliament Hill shooting in Ottawa was a scheme to keep Stephen Harper in power; the Sandy Hook massacre was staged to promote gun control; and Jewish Zionists are waging a secret war to demonize Muslims around the world through control of western media.  Anthony Hall is a tenured member within the U of L’s Faculty of Arts and Science. He has a history of activism that includes being arrested during protests at the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City in 2001, protesting wars in the Middle East, and battling for the rights of First Nations people.


Since late December, Hall has been a co-host on a weekly YouTube program called “False Flag Weekly News” with fellow conspiracy theorists Kevin Barrett, an Arabist-Islamologist, and James Fetzer, a professor of Philosophy Emeritus.

FFWN promotes the idea of a global Zionist conspiracy to create hatred against Muslims by promoting an alternative narrative of Muslim extremism through global “false flag” terror events. These events include just about every large-scale terror attack and mass shooting since the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, which is seen as a sort of “Ground Zero” for this secret war.

Both Barrett and Fetzer are noted Holocaust deniers, and Hall has questioned established facts which happened during the Second World War.

In a prepared statement, Craig Cooper, Dean of Arts and Science, stated the U of L does not dictate research areas to faculty members and supports Hall’s right to “pursue the research topics of his choosing.”

“The university doesn’t always agree with the opinions expressed by faculty members but recognizes their rights to express them,” the statement read.
Hall could not be reached for comment, despite multiple attempts by The Herald, but there are more than six months of weekly broadcasts on YouTube where he spoke freely on a number of topics.

There was a discussion about a Twitter A.I. chatbot named “Tay” developed by Microsoft, which started randomly posting anti-Semitic tweets such as “Hitler was right I hate the Jews” after it was bombarded by internet trolls was supported on FFWN.

Hall referenced the book “Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil” by Gerard Menuhin, which claims to show proof the Holocaust is a myth. He stated the book causes a “very dramatic re-looking at what happened in Europe in World War 2.”

“So I’m reading that text and having to reassess a lot of ideas,” Hall said. “So maybe Tay is actually on to something here.”

During a discussion on the March 2016 Lahore, Pakistan, terror attack that left 75 dead and hundreds injured, Barrett discussed how more Muslims than Christians were killed, but CNN was reporting it as a Muslim attack on Christians.

He went on to say CNN is run by Jewish Zionists like all other major media. Hall then accused CNN political anchor Wolf Blitzer of being a leader in this conspiracy.

“Let’s face it. The media is dominated by ethnically Jewish Zionists, and some of them may not be completely on board with the neo-con agenda, but it sure looks like a lot of them are,” said Barrett.

“And Wolf Blitzer, of course, is one of the chief Zionists in the whole U.S. media,” said Hall. “He is one of the point people.”

During a discussion of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 20 young children and six adults were killed by shooter Adam Lanza, Fetzer said the school had been shut down since 2008 and that the shooting never actually happened. He accused the families of faking the story and collecting between $27 million and $130 million collectively.

Hall stated his impression was that Sandy Hook was not the usual type of false flag event designed to instil hatred of Muslims.

“My understanding is that it was about gun control,” he said on the show.

In a discussion about noted white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, Hall referred to the need for Duke to have an audience to be able to air his views.

“Thinking people, as David Duke is, intelligent people, some of their theories are good, and some of them not-so-good. (Duke) deserves an audience. He has some very astute analysis of things going on. And some of his ideas are objectionable.”

Barrett and Hall’s discussion on the 2014 Parliament Hill shooting described a False Flag event designed to push an anti-Islam agenda to win the election for Stephen Harper. They said that attempt failed and Trudeau took power.

A discussion about swaying public opinion through mass media involved the Ottawa shooting and how convenient that there were photos of shooter Michael Zehaf-Bibeau at the Canadian National War Memorial during the event.

“Supposedly, the image shows him with a gun at the place where he was supposed to have killed Nathan Cirillo. Where did the picture come from?” Hall asked.
He went on to describe the images and footage released during the first hours of the events as “low level productions,” with dummies being blown up and “ketchup being sprayed here and there.”

“They really didn’t have a good budget for their stage management of the whole thing,” Hall said.

The Herald reached out to the Lethbridge Jewish community, for a response, and was provided with the following statement:

“Mr. Hall’s statements and theories are so outlandish, venomous, and without substance, that we cannot even begin to dignify them with a response.”

In defending Hall, Cooper noted the role of universities in “ensuring our societies are free and improve through the critical analysis undertaken through research and the tenet of academic freedom. Academic freedom is necessary so that all topics can be fully explored in the absence of external influence, popular opinion or conventional wisdom.”

CANADA: The New Sodom and Gomorrah? By Arthur Topham

 

CANADASODOM?

CANADA: The New Sodom and Gomorrah?

By
Arthur Topham

On May 17th, 2016, a day recognized by the federal government as “International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia”, an edict emanated forth from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office (PMO) stating that the Liberal government was planning to make additional changes to the “Hate Propaganda” laws (Sections 318 to 320) of the Criminal Code of Canada in order to “protect” the nation’s sexually deviant members.

UpYoursTrudeauJr

The unabashed and strident manner in which the federal government is pushing forward with its controversial agenda of planned perversion and subversion of Canadian society (under the guise of supposed “human rights” for sexual aberrants) is an issue fraught with deep and troubling concern, not only those Canadians of the Christian faith who prefer to rely upon the eternal wisdom of God and Nature but also for millions of other citizens whose moral standards won’t permit them to accept the subversive and sinister hidden aim within the government’s mandate to criminalize public dissent and discussion on moral, ethical and health standards affecting the nation as a whole.

In the words of the PM, “To do its part, the Government of Canada today will introduce legislation that will help ensure transgender and other gender-diverse people can live according to their gender identity, free from discrimination, and protected from hate propaganda and hate crimes.”

FREEXPRESSIONLOCKUP copy 4

The reality that the federal government intends to expand rather than repeal Section 318 – 320 of the Canadian Criminal Code is disconcerting  in itself given the excessively subjective nature of this draconian section of the Code. The concept of “Hate Propaganda” as a “criminal offence” is nothing less than a blatant example of government mind control; one that, here in Canada, has proven itself over the last half century of contentious litigation, to be extremely controversial, provocative and unjust and a clear and present danger to freedom of expression or “free speech” as defined by Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The alarm bells ought to be ringing across the country at the thought of this new “Liberal” government of Justin Trudeau pulling the Orwellian zipper of censorship even tighter over the mouths of Canada’s citizens than his predecessor Harper. It appears to be a new day but still the same old shit – of increasingly repressive laws and greater restrictions on individual freedoms theoretically guaranteed by our Charter.

5FeetFury copy

In fact the threat of expanding Canada’s “hate” laws to include ‘Tranny’(i.e. transvestite) protection has already angered and incensed Canadian bloggers as we see in the following reaction by Kathy Shaidle, one of the veterans of the previous “Section 13” wars that were ongoing during Harper’s reign.

As I’ve stated numerous times and especially in my essay Bad Moon Rising: How the Jewish Lobbies Created Canada’s “Hate Propaganda” Laws, these Communist-inspired laws were surreptitiously and deliberately put in place through the mendacious actions of various Jewish lobby organizations such as the Canadian Jewish Congress, B’nai Brith Canada and, more recently, the newly-formed Centre for Israel & Jewish Affairs, all of whom have worked in tandem for decades to ensure that issues to do with Israel and its Zionist ideological political system would ultimately fall within this section of the Code and therefore make any truthful and factual statements about important civil and national issues indictable offences.

What must be clearly understood from the start when discussing the issue of  “Hate Propaganda” laws is that the notion of elevating the natural emotional feeling of hatred into a pseudo-legal category wherein it becomes an indictable offence is purely an invention of the Zionist Jews and in certain respects an historical concomitant of the Bolshevik era’s Leninist/Stalinist totalitarian terror regimes. One could rightly state that its essential character is embodied in such classics of “hate” literature as Germany Must Perish!, a book written back in 1941 by the Jewish author Theodore N. Kaufman with the sole purpose of inciting America to hate Germany and then translate that hatred into the USA joining the Allies in their unjust war against the National Socialist government of Germany.

EyeOnFreeSpeech600

In a previous article entitled Canada: Hypocrite Nation Ruled by Zionist Deception & anti-Free Speech Laws I had the following to say about these despicable, sham legal subterfuges disguised as legitimate jurisprudence:

“The war to silence Canadians and stymie any public speech that the Jewish lobby felt might negatively impact them or Israel in any way (either on or off the internet), gained its foothold back in 1977 when the federal government first implemented the so-called Canadian Human Rights Act and created its attendant enforcement agencies, the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT). Both the commission and the tribunal were quasi-judicial, i.e. “crazy” judicial in that they basically set their own rules and guidelines and consistently changed the “legal” goal posts depending upon whatever case they were dealing with, in order to ensure a conviction. If fact, of the hundreds of Canadians dragged before these Stalinist style “Show Trial” tribunals, EVERYONE was found guilty for the simple reason that all it took was for someone to register a complain against them and that, in itself, sealed their fate. When I describe Section 13 as a “Bolshevik” type law I do so with the full knowledge that under the former Soviet system, Lenin, in one of the regime’s very first acts upon gaining absolute power, was to make “anti-Semitism” a crime punishable by death. Death, that is, without so much as a trial even. All it would take, (just as with the Section 13 “complaints”) was for someone to accuse another of said crime and the Cheka (soviet secret police) had the excuse to liquidate the victim.”

Reporting on this issue in Christian News Heather Clark remarks that apart from the criminal aspects of this proposed legislation there are those like Charles McVety, president of the Institute for Canadian Values and others who consider the bill to be “nebulous and reckless.”

Clark’s article goes on, “Bill C-16 is so vague, it is unenforceable,” he [McVety] said in a statement. “The fluid nature of gender identity is so nebulous that people can change their gender identity moment by moment. In that the bill seeks to change the Criminal Code of Canada, people may be sent to prison for two years over something that is ill-defined, and indeterminable.”

“It is also reckless as the proposed law will establish universal protection for any man who wishes to access women’s bathrooms or girls’ showers with momentary gender fluidity,” McVety continued. “Every Member of Parliament should examine their conscience over the potential of their vote exposing women and girls to male genitalia.”

JewShitter

In the context of our Charter rights Clark says, “There is also uncertainty as to how the law will be applied to free speech. As previously reported, in 2013, the Supreme Court of Canada upheld the conviction of activist William Whatcott, who found himself in hot water after distributing flyers regarding the Bible’s prohibitions against homosexuality throughout the Saskatoon and Regina neighborhoods in 2001 and 2002.”

Bill-Whatcott-Image

As Charles McVety rightfully stated the proposed Bill C-16 is definitely “nebulous and reckless” but as past convictions in both the cases of Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act and Section 319(2) of the Canadian Criminal Code show, simply because it’s “vague” doesn’t mean that it isn’t “enforceable”. All it takes are judges and justices within the Canadian judicial system who will interpret and lend credence to subjective definitions of nebulous terms such as “hatred” so that they may then shapeshift into whatever meaning the Crown wishes in order to fit the charge. No better example currently exists than the latest and most severe case of Whatcott.

Conclusion: What’s coming next?

During the heated Sec. 13 Campaign here in Canada when the Canadian Human Rights Act was being wielded like a club by the Canadian Human Rights Commission and bloggers around the country were being bludgeoned and jailed, fined and nailed to the “hate crime” cross the Zionist element within the Conservative Right finally realized that the Sec. 13 legislation no longer was serving just their purposes but was being turned against them as well. As a result they garnered the support of Canada’s Zionist media monopoly and the lobbying to repeal the specious section of the Act was eventually accomplished back in June of 2012. Unfortunately they weren’t smart enough to realize that the “Hate Propaganda” laws within the Criminal Code were even more insidious than Sec. 13. They figured that as long as Sec. 319(2) of the ccc was there and could be used against critics of Israel and anyone else accused of “anti-Semitism” then that was just fine with them. To hell (or jail) with “freedom of speech” if it meant allowing bloggers to speak openly and frankly about the Jews or the Zionist empire builders.

But the tables appear to be turning once again as the new Liberal government of Justin Trudeau begins forcing their faggot philosophy down the throats of unwilling Canadians and then, on top of that monumental insult, threatens the nation with increased criminal penalties of up to two years in jail for anyone who doesn’t want to go happily and gayly along down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah carrying their little rainbow flag in hand.

Will they eventually start campaigning to repeal these anti-free speech laws contained in Sec. 318 to 320 of the Criminal Code and get rid of the last vestiges of Orwellian censorship in Canada?

Time will soon tell.

Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia

May 17, 2016
Ottawa, Ontario

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia:

“Today, I join Canadians – and people around the world – to recognize the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.

“Everyone deserves to live free of stigma, persecution, and discrimination – no matter who they are or whom they love. Today is about ensuring that all people – regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity – feel safe and secure, and empowered to freely express themselves.

“On this important day, I encourage all Canadians to raise awareness, and mobilize to end the violence, prejudice, and judgement faced by LGBTQ2 persons.

“As a society, we have taken many important steps toward recognizing and protecting the legal rights for the LGBTQ2 community – from enshrining equality rights in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to the passage of the Civil Marriage Act. There remains much to be done, though. Far too many people still face harassment, discrimination, and violence for being who they are. This is unacceptable.

“To do its part, the Government of Canada today will introduce legislation that will help ensure transgender and other gender-diverse people can live according to their gender identity, free from discrimination, and protected from hate propaganda and hate crimes.

“Today, let us unite in a global celebration of diversity, and reaffirm our commitment to unequivocally defend LGBTQ2 rights as human rights. We will never stop fighting for a safer, more equal, and more just world for all of our children.”

ATEDITOR0216

[Editor’s Note: For the record. The ongoing statements emanating forth from the Prime Minister’s Office that promote and laud the barbarism and murder and terrorism and lies and deceit of the Zionist Jew ‘state’ of Israel are solid confirmation that the Liberal government of Canada under Trudeau Jr. is fully under the control of the Jew lobbyists here in Canada. 

Issuing this type of blatant bullshit propaganda on the Israeli state while at the same time refusing to allow French comedian Dieudonne to enter the country is the height of hypocrisy and bigotry and makes Canada a laughing stock of nations around the world who are well versed on the true, actual reality of what the ‘state’ of Israel is really about.

Canada is still another Zionist Occupied Government (ZOG) and the nation is being blacklisted around the globe because of these unabashed lies and propaganda that our government keeps sending out to the people here and around the world.

Justin Trudeau. You’re just another lying, two-faced, ignorant puppet/sycophant of the Jews and you’ll go down in real history as a traitor to Canada just as your Marxist, Communist father did.

Shalom my ass! There will never be peace until Israel is removed from the nations of the world and Zionism and Jewish power is destroyed just as Syphilis and other contagious diseases inimical to a healthy world.]

JustinIsraelPuppetStatement by the Prime Minister of Canada on Israel Independence Day

May 12, 2016
Ottawa, Ontario

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement in celebration of Yom Ha’atzmaut:

“Today, we celebrate the 68th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel with our Israeli friends and Jewish communities, both here in Canada, and around the world.

“The State of Israel is a thriving and vibrant country, which Canada is proud to call a close partner and steadfast ally.

“Canada and Israel unite in their people-to-people ties, shared values, respect for democracy, and growing trade relationship. I look forward to continuing to strengthen our strong friendship.

“Although today is a joyous day, let us also reflect on the threat that Israel and its people continue to face throughout the world in the form of terrorist attacks, acts of anti-Semitism, and religious intolerance. Canada stands with Israel and will continue to promote peace and stability in the region.

“On behalf of Sophie and our children, I wish everyone celebrating Israel’s Independence Day a Yom Ha’atzmaut Sameach. Shalom.”

[Editor’s Note: Liberal foreign affairs minister Stéphane Dion tells us that in order for Canadians to enjoy freedom of religion they must also have freedom of conscience and, to my way of thinking, the most important freedom of all – freedom of speech.

So what is the new Liberal government of Justin Trudeau doing about ensuring and protecting this basic Charter right? The first thing that needs to be done is to repeal the infamous and Orwellian section of Canada’s Criminal Code Sec. 318 to 320. Without the removal of these unconstitutional “Hate Propaganda” laws, instigated by the Zionist lobby here in Canada, we will never see full freedom of religion (with, of course, the exception of Talmudic Judaism).

So come on Mr. Dion and Mr. Trudeau let’s get behind the Charter challenge to Sec. 319(2) as it’s now unfolding in Regina v Roy Arthur Topham and see to it that all religions are placed on an even keel.

Support Freedom of Speech in Canada and also support Arthur Topham’s upcoming Charter challenge.]

——

The first attempt to replicate the United States’s diplomatic advocacy for beleaguered believers worldwide has come to an end.

Five years ago, Canada’s Conservative party campaigned for a new office to champion the cause of international religious freedom (IRF). The office opened in 2013, looking to complement the strengths of the US State Department’s IRF office that it was modelled after.

But six months after the Conservatives lost national elections to the Liberal party, the four-person, $5 million Office of Religious Freedom (ORF) has been shut down.

“Our government shares the same conviction as the previous government, but it assesses the consequences of its chosen method of promoting this conviction differently,” said foreign affairs minister Stéphane Dion during a speech, according to The Globe and Mail. “I am referring to freedom of religion or belief, which we will defend tooth and nail, but not through the office that the Harper government specifically set up for this purpose.”

Members of prime minister Justin Trudeau’s new government are opting instead to fold religious rights into a broader human rights office.

“We believe that human rights are better defended when they are considered, universal, indivisible, interdependent and interrelated, as set out in the Vienna Declaration,” said Dion during the speech. He foreshadowed the decision in a January speech, noting, “How can you enjoy freedom of religion if you don’t have freedom of conscience? Freedom of speech? Freedom of mobility?”

The chairman of the ORF’s religious advisors doubts this explanation. “If the ORF is not being closed because it is not working, it is likely being closed because the government does not place a priority on the work itself,” wrote Raymond J. De Souza for the National Post. “That reading is rendered more plausible given that the foreign affairs department (now called Global Affairs) undertook no consultations with the ORF’s advisory committee…. If there was a commitment to religious freedom, but through a different means, such consultation would have been an obvious starting point.”

The Economist speculates that Liberals object more to the Conservative party that founded the ORF than the office itself.

Former prime minister Stephen Harper first suggested its creation following the assassination of Pakistani politician Shahbaz Bhatti, an outspoken proponent for his country’s minorities.

“We’re deeply disappointed,” Bruce Clemenger, president of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, told CT. “The office had became a go-to place for us to raise concerns about religious freedom to the government, and it established a level of expertise within the Canadian government.”

An Ottawa academic and Ukrainian Catholic, Andrew Bennett, was nominated as the office’s first and only ambassador in 2013. Bennett left his position in March to join the Christian think tank Cardus and lead its new interfaith initiative, Faith in Canada 150.

The need for the office has been contested since it opened in 2013. Some worried it would be prone to favor Christianity, since the majority of consultants in an early closed-door meeting were Christians. Critics also suggested that it was a “misguided attempt to inject religion into foreign policy, and some have expressed concern that it would be biased toward the persecution of Christians,” Religion News Service reported in 2013.

But the office’s closure was protested by a variety of faith groups, including representatives from the Jewish, Sikh, and Muslim communities, who called its work valuable. “While these projects do not always make headlines, we believe they laudably reflect a practical and effective role Canada can play in mitigating the plight of persecuted religious minorities around the world,” they wrote.

Canadians in general are only moderately enthusiastic about religious freedom: 62 percent said that it was very important that people can practice their religion freely in their country, compared to 84 percent in the United States. Canadians ranked religious freedom below equal rights for women (92%) and two-party, honest elections (81%), according to a Pew Research Center study of 38 countries last year.

Canada’s concern for religious freedom ranked in the bottom third of the countries Pew surveyed. Religion was the most valued democratic principle, Pew found, garnering the support of 74 percent of people globally.

Globally, African countries were most likely to value religious freedom, with 90 percent of Nigerians and Senegalese calling it the most important freedom. (Five of the top seven countries were in sub-Saharan Africa, and the regional median was 87 percent.)

Almost three out of four citizens of Asian countries also valued religious freedom, though the range from the regional median (74%) was larger. The vast majority of Indians and Indonesians (both 83%) highly prioritize religious freedom, while less than half of South Koreans (49%), Vietnamese (46%), and Japanese (24%) said the same.

Brazil had the highest support (86%) for religious freedom out of any Latin American country, followed by Argentina (76%) and Chile (75%). Support was the lowest in Mexico (64%) and Venezuela (66%). The regional median was 72 percent.

Europe had the lowest regional median (63%). Italians (75%) and Germans (71%) were most likely to support religious freedom, while French (52%) and Polish (55%) citizens were least likely.

Support for religious freedom did not strongly correlate with participation in a particular faith, Pew found.

“Freedom of religion is widely embraced around the world, but it is particularly significant to people who place high importance on religion in their lives,” stated Pew. “In 34 nations, those who say religion is very important in their own lives are more likely to believe it is very important to live in a country where people can practice their religion freely.”

CT noted when Bennett was named the religious freedom ambassador (two years late), as well as several cases where Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board denied asylum because applicants demonstrated poor knowledge of Christian doctrine.

By Anthony James Hall (Special to Truth and Shadows)

After taking his vow of office, Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau introduced his new cabinet. Canada’s triumphant leader rightfully boasted that the new face of his government authentically reflects Canada’s multicultural population.  Moreover half of his appointees are women. One of them, Jody Wilson-Raybould, is a member of the Kwakwaka’wakw First Nation as well as Canada’s first Aboriginal Minister of Justice.

Another striking appointment is that of Maryam Monsef. Age 30, Ms. Monsef is the youngest Minister as well as the first Muslim ever to hold a cabinet position in Canada’s executive branch. Monsef emigrated from Afghanistan when she was 11 years old. Trudeau assigned to the youthful cabinet inductee the Democratic Institutions portfolio.

The elevation of a young Muslim woman to high office in the core of the Canadian government represents a good beginning to start repairing the enormous damage wrought by the defeated former Prime Minister, Stephen Harper.  In the recent election campaign Harper brought to radical extremes his attempt to gain political advantage from bashing Muslim people, Muslim religion, and Muslim dress. He had hoped to ride to a new electoral mandate by energizing a wave of Islamophobia.

Harper’s campaign began under the guidance of Lynton Crosby, an Australian Wizard of Oz with considerable political experience turning anti-immigrant, anti-Aboriginal policies to the political advantage of his prior client, neoconservative Australian Prime Minister John Howard.  Crosby tried to help Harper refine his image as Christian warrior with a passion for vanquishing Islamic infidels. The defeated prime minister attempted to cultivate his crusader personae by dramatizing a federal prohibition on the wearing of the niqab—a feature of Islamic dress adopted by some Muslim women—during citizenship ceremonies. This ban was ruled unconstitutional by the courts, but Harper promised to take the case to the Supreme Court of Canada if re-elected.

A Muslim himself, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi condemned Harper’s tactic as “disgraceful.” Nenshi explained that under the auspices of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, “the label of terrorism is thrown around in Ottawa with disturbing regularity… It’s targeted language that always describes an act of violence by someone of my faith.” The popular municipal politician continued, “To tie violent action to a religious group,” is “incredibly dangerous stuff.”

Of course there is nothing new in the attempt by the ousted prime minister to incite and exploit fear of Muslims as a religious wedge issue deployed in the service of political gain. The harnessing of Islamophobia for the advancement of neoconservative agendas goes back at least to 1979 when the basic ideological framework of the Global War on Terror was outlined at an international conference in Jerusalem organized by Benjamin Netanyahu.

Islamophobia and dog whistle politics

Perhaps the outcome of the Canadian election suggests that the pendulum of popular public opinion in the West is shifting. Perhaps the failure of Harper’s party to hold onto power by trumping up fear of Muslims marks the beginning of the end of the Global War on Terror. Perhaps this crack in the neoconservative edifice is like the early stages of the public assault on the Berlin Wall whose toppling marked the beginning of the end of the Cold War.

By identifying Islam with “barbaric cultural practices” and “medieval tribal customs,” the former Harper government may have exposed too much about the structure of neoconservative lies, deception and spin. Harper’s crusader zeal may have drawn unwanted scrutiny to the manipulations malevolently deployed in constructing the psychological prisons of synthetic fear thrown up by the War on Terror’s busy contractors.

For a time it seemed the niqab issue had set the trap that would turn the election in Harper’s favour. Fearing this outcome, Sheema Khan chronicled in the Globe and Mail some of the experiences of those on the receiving end of the Islamophobia. She wrote, “The government’s open hostility has given license to bigots to vent xenophobia. A pregnant Muslim woman is attacked in Montreal. A niqab-wearing woman is attacked while shopping with her daughters in Toronto. Mosques are taking precautions. Identifiable Muslim women feel less safe, and Muslim youth face difficult questions about identity and acceptance.”

Fifty years after arriving in Canada as a toddler Khan felt compelled to announce that she was made to feel like “a second-class citizen.” She added, “the Conservative message is: You are Muslim, you are the ‘other,’ you can’t be trusted and you will never belong.”

In the Huffington Post Hassan Arif characterized Harper’s failed divide-and-conquer strategy as follows, “Stephen Harper is campaigning on fear using the niqab as a wedge issue scapegoating Muslims. It is no coincidence that a senior adviser on the Conservative campaign is an Australian strategist known for dog whistle politics against cultural minorities. This is an attack on a longstanding consensus in Canadian politics in favour of multiculturalism and diversity, a consensus that had been upheld by the Liberals.”

Fear of terrorism, fear of Muslims

Trudeau’s success in the campaign was based in part on his spirited defense of the principles that “a Canadian citizen is a Canadian citizen,” that the principles entrenched in the UN Declaration of Universal Human Rights as well as in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms must prevail.

In one of the most significant moments in the Canadian election campaign, Trudeau evoked the words of former U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt on the subject of fear. He declared, “Having failed to help Canadians where it matters, what is Stephen Harper left with? Fear. The politics of fear and division. Franklin Roosevelt said we have nothing to fear but fear itself. Well, Stephen Harper has nothing to offer but fear itself. Fear of terrorism. Fear of the world beyond our borders. Fear of each other.”

Trudeau put in context his references to “fear of terrorism” by indicating, “We all know what is going on here…. It is nothing less than an attempt to play on people’s fears and foster prejudice, directly towards the Muslim faith.”

There are important international implications in the identification by the new Canadian Prime Minister of the prior government’s incitement and exploitation of Islamaphobia in the quest to gain, hold and extend political power. But Trudeau’s begs the question of what will happen next in addressing the great wrongs done to all Canadians through the long years when our government purposely inflamed public opinion against Muslims.

Paid mercenaries under Islamic flags

For the last 14 years since 9/11 the world has been delivered an onslaught of media imagery and commentary depicting Islamic terrorism as the world’s worst scourge. After two generations of being saturated in the intense psychological operations of the Cold War, we in the West were subjected to a shift from the propaganda of anti-communism to the propaganda of anti-terrorism. A key part of this propaganda has been to depict Islam as a religion of violence, as a seedbed of radicalization, murder and mayhem.

The biggest lie in the Global War on Terror is that the forces of Islamic jihad are totally independent, self-directed and self-financed. In fact there is a long history of the Western powers infiltrating the Muslim world and instrumentalizing Islamic sectarianism for imperial advantage. This trajectory of exploitation continues yet. It was on full display throughout the recent Canadian election campaign.

It is a matter of record that the CIA created al Qaeda as hosted within the mujahedeen and Taliban. The goal of this U.S.-financed and armed operation was to remove the Soviet-backed government of Afghanistan. The Western creation and sponsorship of mercenary armies said to be operating various Islamic flags has continued in a large arc of covert intervention. This arc of instrumentalized Islam extends from the breakup of the Balkans to the overthrow of Gaddafi’s government in Libya to the current campaign aimed at displacing Assad from power and dividing Syria and Iraq into easy-to-manipulate statelets.

There is a large and compelling body of serious scholarship on the history of this process emphasizing the close connection between Western intelligence services and groups regularly identified in the media as Islamic terrorist groups. The prolific scholarship on these subjects of, for instance, Ahmed Nafeez, Peter Dale Scott and Michel Chossudovsky comes immediately to mind.

This is not to say that there are not real zealots, as there are in every religion, that are prepared to commit violence to advance what they see as their sacred cause. In the context of the inner workings of the Global War on Terror, however, such individuals are likely to become prized assets to be funded, armed and manipulated by Western intelligence agencies in the hope they will participate in acts necessary to generate the political currency of fear. We know that the forerunner to this type of transaction was Operation Gladio, a NATO-run series of violent episodes concocted to turn public opinion against Europe’s left-wing parties.

The Terror Factory

By design, the Global War on Terror merges the empowerment of police state and surveillance state at home, military aggressions abroad. In Terror Factory, Trevor Aaronson describes the role of the FBI agents and infiltrators in encouraging pliable Muslim individuals to commit violence, only to be apprehended at some point in the entrapment process. His research leads Aaronson to conclude that these same procedures of FBI manipulation are re-enacted in almost every case of reported domestic terrorism in the United States.

Body in Ottawa

The Harper government took full advantage of Ottawa shooting.

The evidence is strong that a similar process was at play in the Ottawa shooter event of October 22, 2014. On that day, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was identified by the FBI and CBS News as the killer of a soldier at the National War Cenotaph in the Canadian capital of Ottawa. Several hours later the armed Zehaf-Bibeau, now described by U.S. sources as “a recent Muslim convert,” was reported as having been shot dead after entering the nearby Parliament Building.

In retrospect this episode can be seen as the commencement of the Harper government’s campaign for re-election. As on 9/11 an elaborate interpretation was delivered almost immediately without any formal investigation whatsoever. The Canadian media fell in line and refused to ask any skeptical questions. The Harper government predictably exploited the occasion to put through Parliament pre-prepared legislation and policies setting up then-Prime Minister Harper for his campaign for re-election conflating Muslim “barbarism” with his war against “jihadi terrorism.”

Professor Graeme MacQueen has evaluated the government and police accounts of what transpired and has found many internal contradictions and holes in the official narrative. He has identified 34 unanswered questions that must be addressed. The first is, “When and by whom was the FBI first informed of the perpetrator’s name?” MacQueen’s Report for Democracy International is entitled The October 22, 2014, Ottawa Shootings: Why Canadians Need a Public Inquiry. MacQueen devotes one of his sections to address the question, “Was Zehaf-Bibeau a Managed Terrorist?”

The managers of the New York-based Canadian newspaper chain Postmedia seem to have worked quite closely with Lynton Crosby and the operatives in the re-election war room of Stephen Harper. They obviously collaborated closely to generate a flood of evocative images depicting ghoulish impressions of jihadi terror in the run-up to the Canadian election.

Throughout the campaign Paul Godfey’s monopolistic Postmedia chain, including the Ottawa Citizen, the Calgary Herald, the Vancouver Sun and the National Post, filled their front pages with collages of mask-wearing Arab faces, hooded Islamic men, countless real or faked pictures of the gun-toting kaffiyeh-wearing Zahef-Bibeau, and headlines like “The Radical Reality: Canada and Homegrown Terrorism,” or “The Terrorist and the Imam.”

On October 3, about two weeks before the election, the Postmedia papers released a series of pictures purporting to show wide shots of Zahef-Bibeau at the National War Memorial in the very act of murdering his victim. There is no compelling evidence presented to interpret the images as anything other than rather crude photoshopped fabrications. About the “French tourist” who supposedly captured the images, reporter Shaamini Yogaretnam indicates that “Jean Paul asked the Citizen to use only his first name.”

Trying to explain the origins of the prior grainy image that was quickly published in the media in order to convict Zahef-Bibeau in the court of public opinion, Yogaretnam came up with nothing but weasel words and indeterminate phrases. In the process she produced a classic example of really bad or even malfeasant journalism. “It is believed,” she wrote, “that several Ottawa police employees forwarded a zoomed-in picture of the gunman to civilian email addresses. The leak of the photo onto the Internet is believed to have originated from law enforcement sources, but it’s not clear whether it was Ottawa police, OPP (Ontario Provincial Police), RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), or one of the forces in Canada or the United States that had access to the photograph that started the chain that led to its being posted online.” Who was it precisely that did this believing? How does such a confusing mishmash of words prove anything except an intent to deceive and obfuscate?

The day before the federal election, Paul Godfrey’s Islamophobia-inciting Postmedia chain gave new meaning to the term yellow journalism. The front pages of all the Postmedia newspapers brandished giant ads. Against plain yellow backgrounds the newspapers proclaimed, “Voting Liberal will cost you.”

Restoring public confidence

MacQueen is right. Canadians do need a public inquiry into the inconsistencies permeating the official accounts of the Ottawa shootings of October 22, 2014. But we need more than that. The new Trudeau government must address the broad and deep implications of his election campaign pronouncement that Stephen Harper has incited and exploited Islamophobia by conflating fear of Muslims with fear of terrorism.

It is a good start to have appointed Maryam Monsef to a cabinet post. But that alone does not repair the tremendous damage that has been done to the civil condition of Canadian society after almost a decade of Harper’s media-enhanced promotion of Islamophobia. How did Harper take power in the first place? He first took control of the prime minister’s position in 2006 riding a wave of neoconservative empowerment connected to now-hotly-contested interpretations of what really happened on 9/11.

Whatever happened, the Canadian government should not have made Canadian anti-terrorist policy after 9/11 by depending exclusively on a very flawed U.S. report. The 9/11 Commission Report was based on a heavily politicized investigation whose co-chairs acknowledge was “set up to fail.” There should have been a Canadian investigation into the Canadian aspects of 9/11 including Canada’s involvement on the fateful day in the failures of NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

Moreover no officials in the government and Parliament of Canada should have sanctioned policies and laws based on a foreign report whose main conclusions were based on evidence obtained through illegal torture. The result of this failure of due diligence is that many Canadian officials made themselves complicit in prohibited torture and therefore violators of international criminal law.

To be consistent with his condemnation of Harper’s fostering of fear and prejudice towards Muslims, Trudeau must help us come to terms with what is real and what is concocted in the former Canadian government’s so-called war on “jihadi terrorism.” What, for instance, are Canadians to make of the reports in the Canadian media last March that an agent or asset connected to Canada’s embassy in Jordan was caught in Turkey helping with ISIL recruitment?

It would be a travesty for Prime Minister Trudeau to follow in the footsteps of U.S. President Barack Obama by simply maintaining the same fictions intertwined with the Global War on Terror that the both men inherited from the neoconservative administrations that preceded them. To restore Canada to civil health we need a transparent public process get to the root causes of the Islamophobia, including the systematic identification of all Muslims with the heavily engineered imagery of terrorism. This investigation could be characterized as part of the process of restoring evidence-based policy making to police work and military operations. Only thus do we have a chance of regaining some balance between the requirements of liberty, democracy and transparency with the imperatives of security.
