  1. LGBT, Antifa demand Texas church shut down over sexuality

    Militant and Marxist protesters from LGBT and Antifa groups gathered to shut down a Christian megachurch in Austin, Texas, last Sunday – reportedly demanding that its members renounce their biblical views on sexuality while condemning the church’s support of biblical marriage between one man and one woman.

    “Members of the were joined by a dozen or so other gay rights activists who chanted, waved pride flags and held signs [last] weekend to protest Celebration Church because of its opposition to gay marriage,” PJ Media reported. “The gay rights activists also protested the church’s Sunday morning services at the Austin school district performing arts center in order to criticize the district for renting the facility to Christian ‘homophobes.’”

    • Militant and Marxist protesters from LGBT and Antifa groups gathered to shut down a Christian megachurch in Austin, Texas, last Sunday – reportedly demanding that its members renounce their biblical views on sexuality while condemning the church’s support of biblical marriage between one man and one woman.

      Erem … hasn’t “marriage between one man and one woman” always been the anchor-stone, genetic model or norm? P’raps this might explain humanity’s incredible success at populating nearly every crevice and niche on this entire planet. There’s even 5,000 people living down on Antarctica!

      With all genetic box canyons cast aside—which is what too much of the LGQBTXYZ involves—instead, let’s give a Heigh Ho to heterosexual fecundity. Despite, how it were not for this unbelievable genetic dimorphism, none of this LGQBTXYZ rigmarole ever would have happened. EVER!!!

      I’m repeating myself and shall stop now.

      Thenk ewe,


  2. The Threat of “Multiracial White Supremacists”

    Daniel Greenfield

    When your premise dismantles your entire article, maybe you should reconsider your article.

    But, nope. The Daily Beast decided to publish, “Why Young Men of Color Are Joining White-Supremacist Groups” anyway. Its examples involve Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer, neither of which are white supremacist groups.

    But forget checking facts. That’s for conservatives.

  3. Alleged Nazi Collaborator George Soros Working With Iranian Regime
    September 4, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    What do George Soros and Iran have in common? Much like ordinary Islamists and the left, they both hate Jews.

    He collaborated with the Nazis during the Holocaust and insisted that helping confiscate property from Jews brought him no guilt. “There was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets that if I weren’t there of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would.” He described the season of these horrors as “the most exciting time of my life.”

    Soros grew up in a “Jewish, anti-Semitic home”. He called his mother a “typical Jewish anti-Semite” who hated his first wife because she was “too Jewish”. After undergoing psychoanalysis, he was able to understand that his shame was rooted in his Jewishness. He had a special contempt for Jewish philanthropies after a failed attempt to defraud a Jewish charity in London.

    He was booed when he undermined the presentation of an award to a Holocaust survivor by comparing Israeli Jews to Nazis. Elie Wiesel had declared in disgust, “I heard what happened. If I’d been there—and you can quote me—I would have walked out.”

    That same year, Soros blamed the Israeli government for a “resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe”.

    So it’s no surprise to find Soros Inc. tentacles in Iran.

    • Jewish Soros hates Jews so tries to destroy Israel.

      Hungarian Soros hates Hungary so tries to destroy Hungary.

      Self hater pays shrink to be told he is hateful shithead.

      He sells sea shells by the sea shore.

      How embarrassing.

    • Jewish Soros hates jews so tries to destroy Israel.

      Hungarian Soros hates Hungarians so tries to destroy Hungary.

      Self-hating Soros hates self so pays shrink to learn he is self-hating shithead.

      He sold sea shells by the sea shore but refused to destroy himself.

  4. The Kavanaugh Battle Heats Up
    How far will Democrats go with their resistance?

    “The judge’s job is to interpret the law, not to make the law or make policy,” said Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to fill the retired Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court, in a speech he delivered at Antonin Scalia Law School in June 2016. “Read the text of the Constitution as written, mindful of history and tradition. Don’t make up new constitutional rights that are not in the text of the Constitution. Don’t shy away from enforcing constitutional rights that are in the text of the Constitution.” Progressives detest Judge Kavanaugh’s conservative philosophy of judicial restraint. They want a Supreme Court filled with progressive judges in their own image, willing to bend the Constitution to fit their policy preferences. Thus, they will use every trick in the book to try and bring Judge Kavanaugh down, as they did to Robert Bork and nearly succeeded in doing to Justice Clarence Thomas. However, so long as Senate Republicans stick together to vote for this eminently qualified mainstream conservative jurist, there is little that the Democrat obstructionists can do in the end to stop the Kavanaugh train. First, however, Judge Kavanaugh must endure four grueling days of his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, beginning on Tuesday. He will have to listen to Democrats bray about how the confirmation process has been rigged to push through a nominee somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun, while patiently parrying questions designed to trap or embarrass him.

  5. Massive MS-13 Bust in California
    Establishment media ignores the story – and California Democrats seek to avoid “labels” for violent criminal illegals.
    September 4, 2018
    Lloyd Billingsley

    “Murder, violent assaults and drug trafficking among charges against alleged MS-13 members,” read the Fresno Bee headline last week. The story got little attention at the national level, despite the gravity and scope of the crimes. According to Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, the investigation began with 14 homicides in the town of Mendota and in Fresno County between 2015 and 2017.

    “The homicides are extremely violent in nature,” Mims said in the press conference. “Most as a result of hacking injuries” and knife attacks. Police confiscated seven guns, 57 knives, 10 machetes, and 270 rounds of ammunition. The investigation eventually covered at least 30 homicides in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston and New York City.

    “The investigation uncovered a wide range of criminal activity, including murder, violent assaults and drug trafficking by MS-13 cells operating in and around Mendota and Los Angeles,” U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott told reporters.

    “MS-13 members were using the remote area of our county as an extension of their larger operation in Los Angeles,” Fresno County District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp said, “and created a home base to continue to operate their unlawful activities while ingraining themselves in our community.” A full 25 members of the MS-13 gang, ages 18 to 31, face charges for murder, violent assaults and drug trafficking, but it wasn’t just a local or California issue.

  6. Anti-Christian “Pogroms” in Nigeria
    Not that you’d know this from the Roman Catholic leadership.
    September 4, 2018
    Jack Kerwick

    Unquestionably, the abuse and corruption of children by sexually predatory Catholic priests and its concealment by church leaders long precedes the rise of Pope Francis. Nevertheless, as has been noted by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, former Vatican ambassador to the United States, this rot reaches to the highest echelons of the Church leadership.

    Thus, Vigano concludes, the Pope must resign.

    This lifelong Roman Catholic agrees wholeheartedly.

    The idea that the Pope was ignorant of what has occurred stretches credibility to the snapping point. But even if he was ignorant, his resignation would be a powerful symbolic expression of the Church’s resolve to repent of the evil that it has permitted for decades.

    In all candor, though, there are still other reasons for why Francis should resign:

  7. A short profile of the Amsterdam trainstation stabber Jawed S. Exclusive story, in dutch:

    He arrived in Germany in 2015, went to school in Neumagen-Dhron. Was later moved to a shelter for single refugees in Oberdiebach. Radicalized there, grew beard, german intelligence was warned about him.
    He posted extremist stuff on Facebook. Two days before the stabbing he posted a photo of Wilders with a knife through his head.

    • Police found a testament in Jawed S.’s house, he expected not to survive his stabbing spree.
      He stated during interrogation that both his parents died, and that just 4 things are important in his life: Allah, Islam, the Quran and prophet Muhammed.

      • He stated during interrogation that both his parents died, and that just 4 things are important in his life: Allah, Islam, the Quran and prophet Muhammed.

        Fair enough, then. Let’s place this stabby POS into the general population and see how “stabby” his life gets …

  9. Islamic Republic of Iran building ‘ballistic missile factory,’ with missiles able to reach Tel Aviv – Israel releases satellite images

    Iran’s saber-rattling and its calls to destroy Israel are more or less constant, and this is yet another indication that the bloodthirsty Islamic regime in Tehran doesn’t mean just to talk; it will act to destroy Israel as soon as it possibly can. The United Nations would not tolerate these repeated vows by one member state that it will wipe out another member state, and direct action to do so, if the targeted nation were any one other than Israel. But when it comes to Israel, any threat, any provocation, any outrage is welcomed by the UN, which is dominated by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

  11. Communities Push Back On ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ For Children

    As the “Drag Queen Story Hour” for children holds more events at public-funded libraries across the country, it’s beginning to experience growing pushback from communities, particularly in the South.

    The reading sessions at public libraries feature men dressed as women presenting “gender fluidity”-focused stories and commentary for the express purpose of providing “positive and unabashedly queer role models” to children.

    “Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores,” the organization’s website explains. “DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.”


      Sell any Nike stock that you may own.

    Nike Goes From Sweatshops To Hiring Kaepernick …You Know For Equality

    • I ask our overseas friends to not buy anything from Nike.

      At this point in time … it is my intense personal pleasure to announce that I’ve NEVER bought a Nike brand item in my entire life.

      If the whole label winked out of current reality, it would only inspire me to open a magnum of Champagne.

      • Nor have I.
        New Balance has a factory outlet 15 minutes from my apt. They used to make everything in Maine, though I hear some comes from Vietnam these days.

    • Colin Kaepernick is a perfect example of someone using their celebrity status to pseudo-validate personal beliefs being held that are totally irrelevant regarding their claim to fame. It is one of the more powerful levers which the MSM possesses as part of their recruitment spiel when it comes to delivering that “15 minutes of fame”. Boy howdy, I certainly wouldn’t want to share the slightest arc of Kaepernick’s tidy little spotlight.

      In an age of Ego over Empiricism (in their worst and best senses, respectively), this is an irresistible promise, especially to intermediate IQ types like Kaepernick.

      Yo! Message from HQ:

      Just because you are talented at playing a ball game that most mature males abandon during their adolescence does not ensconce you as some sort of political pundit or moral authority.

      In fact, demonstrating such outrageous disrespect for American values seems to have gotten your piddly little @ss traded from the 49ers. Not that I could even tell you what league or which team this rectal cavity went to.

      Be it Barbara Streisand and her Hollyweird crew of anti-Westerners, whatever vacuous “talking heads”, or just the usual boatload of camp followers who obtain personal validation by rubbing shoulders with the rich-and-famous—all of it is part and parcel of building a new Consensual Reality™ which relies more upon individual emotions and feelings as opposed to being based upon facts, reason, and [gasp!] logic.

  13. Saudi Arabia seeks death penalty for Sunni scholar Salman Odah (mee, Sep 4, 2018)

    “A Saudi prosecutor demanded the death penalty for prominent Sunni scholar Salman al-Odah on Tuesday, his son and Saudi rights groups confirmed.

    Odah, 61, is an internationally renowned Sunni Muslim scholar and cleric known for his progressive views on controversial social issues.

    He was referred to a secret trial in mid-August in Riyadh after nearly a year in detention without charges.

    Saudi official media announced on Tuesday that “a person affiliated with a terrorist organisation” was sentenced to death, but did not name Odah.

    Saudi rights activists told Middle East Eye that leaked news from a Riyadh court confirmed that the person is Salman al-Odah, who is affiliated to the International Union of Muslim Scholars, which the kingdom has labelled as a “terrorist organisation”….”

    • … to a secret trial in mid-August in Riyadh after nearly a year in detention without charges.

      Well now, that certainly explains everything.

      What more we could we want from such a duplicitous “ally”.

    • A Saudi prosecutor demanded the death penalty for prominent Sunni scholar Salman al-Odah on Tuesday, his son and Saudi rights groups confirmed.

      So, does this mean to tell us that MbS is all window dressing?!?

      Looking upon all of the Saudi Arabian “progress” as mere ornamentation will do infinitely greater harm than good. Then again, if this Saudi “reform” is strictly tassel and tinsel, then to hell with MbS and every last of his ilk.

      This PLANET needs so badly a Muslim Majority Nation that convincingly climbed onboard the 21th Century bandwagon. It certainly LOOKS like MbS is doing a determined job but, due to how TAQIYYA IRREDEEMABLY DAMNS ISLAM, there is no way to know for sure.

      We only can hope that MbS isn’t a big lying wad of compacted taqiyya sh!te. Which, all too sadly, may well be the case.

      Saudi rights activists told Middle East Eye that leaked news from a Riyadh court confirmed that the person is Salman al-Odah, who is affiliated to the International Union of Muslim Scholars, which the kingdom has labelled as a “terrorist organisation”….

  14. Bangladeshi embassy workers in Saudi accused of abusing tortured maids (mee, Sep 4, 2018)

    “The Bangladeshi embassy in Saudi Arabia has suspended two workers accused of abusing women who had fled to the embassy-run shelter in Jeddah after being tortured by their Saudi employers.

    Local authorities took action after an abuse victim, who had been working as a maid in Saudi Arabia, tried to kill herself at Dhaka airport in Bangladesh last week.

    The tortured maid attempted to kill herself by swallowing insecticide inside a toilet in Dhaka airport, according to official Bangladeshi police documents seen by Middle East Eye.

    According to the documents, fellow abuse victims who accompanied the woman from the safe house in Saudi Arabia intervened, alongside airport cleaning staff, to stop the woman from killing herself.

    Airport police officers interviewed the woman and then filed a case against four employees of the Bangladeshi embassy in Saudi Arabia, accusing them of directly contributing to her desire to take her own life.

    Bangladeshi police detained the woman, who remains in detention because killing oneself is a crime in the country.

    Aid workers familiar with the incident said the woman attempted suicide after an embassy employee promised to marry her and expedite her repatriation to Bangladesh in exchange for sexual favours…”

Quaranic dictak or not, allow one smidgen of the sharia into your society and watch the rest of it magically appear like some sort of evil fairy hovering over future generations.

  15. CBC – ‘Catastrophic’ U.S. funding cut leaves UN agency scrambling to help Palestinians

    UNRWA appeals to Canada and other nations to help make up budget shortfall

    Just days after classes began for half a million Palestinian students in the Middle East, there’s an urgent warning that the school year could quickly come to an end thanks to a decision made in Washington.

    The United Nations agency that assists Palestinian refugees and their descendants faces a funding shortfall of $217 million US following the announcement last week that the United States, its largest donor, is cancelling its financial support to the organization.

    “It’s catastrophic,” said Chris Gunness, a spokesperson for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

    “Imagine a city — I don’t know, Ottawa or Montreal — where the local authorities simply said there would be no schools, there would be no clinics. I mean, that’s effectively what is going on,” Gunness told CBC.

    The U.S. State Department on Friday labelled UNRWA “irredeemably flawed,” as top American officials accused the agency of inflating the number of Palestinians who are Palestinian refugees, with the right to return to their homes in what is now Israel.

    As the Trump Administration puts the finishing touches on what the president has called “the ultimate deal” to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it’s believed the elimination of funding to UNRWA is part of a push to convince Palestinian leaders to drop demands for most of those refugees to return.

    Israel welcomes decision

    While some Israeli media outlets have reported that Israeli security officials have warned that defunding UNRWA could lead to unrest in the West Bank and Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday welcomed the U.S. move.

    “[The Palestinians] created a unique institution, 70 years ago, not to absorb the refugees but to perpetuate them. Therefore, the U.S. has done a very important thing by halting the financing for the refugee perpetuation agency known as UNRWA,” he said.

    Palestinian leaders have reacted with fury to Washington’s decision to stop funding UNRWA. A spokesperson for President Mahmoud Abbas called the move an “assault” against his people.

    Part of daily life

    UNRWA was established in 1949 to provide for hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who were forced from their homes, or fled, after the creation of the state of Israel and the war that followed the year before.

    It now helps 5.4 million Palestinians living in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, as well as in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, with everything from education to food aid to medical care.

    Walk through any of the Palestinian refugee camps — which are made up of permanent structures, rather than white tents usually associated with such camps — and the UN’s robin’s-egg blue flag is a common sight at schools and on garbage trucks.

    In the medical clinic in the Amari Camp, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, patients told CBC that they worry about where their children will be treated if the facility is closed.

    “This clinic is everything for us, and we are not able to get treatment anywhere else,” said Alaa Atiyeh, who came in to have a doctor look at some broken ribs. “The medicine is expensive outside, and the doctors will cost a lot.”

    Appeal to donors

    Gunness, the UNRWA spokesperson, said the agency is calling on all its donors, including Canada, “to step forward with funding because, to be clear, we opened our schools just a few days ago, but we only have enough money to run them until the end of September.”

    “And at that point, UNRWA is running on empty.”

    Canada announced an extra $10 million in funding to UNRWA earlier this year, following a previous cut to the agency’s budget from the U.S. The Trudeau government restored Canada’s contribution to UNRWA in 2016, initially giving the agency $25 million.

    The Conservative government of Stephen Harper cut funding to UNRWA in 2009, alleging the organization had links to Hamas, the Palestinian militant group that controls the Gaza Strip.

      • … and the Palestinians can support themselves because???

        Hell, just look at the endless factories, hospitals, research parks, universities, and other key infrastructure that all those bazillions of dollars could have bought.

        Oops, my mistake. As this world’s premier collection of hapless, prima donna fü¢kwits, the “Palestinians” are a pluperfect example of what to expect from Western funding of any pie that Hamas (or the MB) has their finger into.

  16. Al Qaeda trying to regain primacy as Islamic State loses ground: NATO (ahram, Sep 4, 2018)

    “Al Qaeda is trying to regain its primacy over international militancy as Islamic State loses ground, a senior NATO official said on Tuesday, seeing a potentially increased risk to the West from the groups’ rivalry.

    But Arndt von Loringhoven, the alliance’s assistant secretary general for intelligence and security, said Islamic State retained some personnel strength despite its combat losses, including fresh recruits among women and children.

    “ISIS-Daesh weakening has provided al Qaeda with an opportunity to attempt to regain its former status,” Von Loringhoven told a security conference hosted by Israel’s IDC Herzliya college, using a term for Islamic State.

    “While ISIL-Daesh has occupied the world’s attention for the last four-five year, al Qaeda has been quietly rebuilding its global networks and capabilities,” he said, citing activity in Kashmir, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and North Africa.

    “Rather like ISIL-Daesh, al Qaeda’s strategic aim is to regain leadership of like-minded militants and extremists. The competition for legitimacy, affiliates and recruits among the two major global extremist groups potentially increases the terrorism threat to NATO and our partners.”

    Al Qaeda carried out the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States, prompting U.S.-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. U.S. forces killed al Qaeda’s leader, Osama bin Laden, in a Pakistani hideout in 2011. Soon after, Islamic State, which is guided by a similarly extremist form of Sunni Islam, arose.

    Islamic State’s fiefdoms in Syria and Iraq have been largely dismantled in recent years by offensives launched by Damascus and Baghdad with the backing of various foreign coalitions.

    Von Loringhoven said NATO estimated that Islamic State’s peak strength of around 39,000 fighters in Syria and Iraq had been halved to between 18,000 and 20,000, most of them dispersed around the two countries and “gone underground”.

    “A very worrisome trend is the group’s concerted effort to use propaganda to radicalise women and minors, who have emerged as a new target for recruitment relatively recently,” he said.

    “This trend may have led to increased involvement of women and minors in the planning and execution of a number of attacks, including in NATO countries,” he said.

    Citing the arrest in June of a Tunisian man suspected of planning a ricin attack Germany, von Loringhoven said militants could increasingly try to turn to homemade chemical or biological arms or attacks using commercially available drones.”

      • Subtle, MB-bs.

        Too right, yucki! Either organization can be found down at Islam’s most ancient bedrock. A distinction without a difference.

        A very worrisome trend is the group’s concerted effort to use propaganda to radicalise women and minors, who have emerged as a new target for recruitment relatively recently,” he said.

        Far more “worrisome” is the West’s almost churlish denial of Muslims immediate access to their collective paradise. If that is what they so fervently plead for, who are we to deny them their deepest wish? With all of those jihadis chanting “Death to America!”, why shouldn’t they be rewarded with entrance into paradise the very next minute?

        As a horrible but lurid example: America could develop artillery or air-delivered “enhanced yield micro-nukes” (it’s already done so for artillery, yust look up M-29 Davy Crockett M-388 nuclear projectile).

        Back on track: Small enough to mate with existing JDAM systems, but big enough to neutron-irradiate a city block with minimal residual fallout. How many blocks would need “taking apart” before whichever governments in question would sing out the word “Uncle” like some bizarre Italian operatic solo?

        All of this can be done with ZERO fallout—just at much greater expense—via deployment of fuel-air bombs (“thermobaric weapons” or “vacuum bombs”).

        I am now fully convinced that the hometown (i.e., the city of Kandahar) of bin Laden’s “spiritual adviser”, mullah Omar, should have been flattened and had the rubble bounced a few extra times within hours of the 9-11 Atrocity.

        That is how I felt on 09-11-2001 (to much tribal disapproval and censure) and it is how I feel today.

        Regardless, my feelings remain the same.

        With London, Madrid, Bali, Bali II, Mumbai … each and every one of these terrorist Atrocities ought to have attracted some truly unpleasant consequences to large Islamic populations. Preferably to the particular cities or villages of the perpetrators.

        Time for a little comic relief….

  17. Dozens of Al Houthis, Iranians killed in Yemen (gulfnews, Sep 4, 2018)

    “Dozens of Al Houthi fighters and allied Iranian advisers have been killed this week by the Yemeni government forces in a stronghold of the militiamen, a military source said on Tuesday.

    Around 400 Al Houthis had been killed or injured during battles in the mountainous district of Maran in the northern province of Saada over the past two days, the source told news portal September Net linked to the Yemeni Defence Ministry.

    Last month, the government forces, backed by an Arab coalition, unleashed an operation dubbed “Cutting the Snake’s Head” in Saada near the border with Saudi Arabia.

    Government loyalists have since recaptured territory in Maran, where the leader of the Iran-allied militia Abdul Malek Al Houthi is believed to be hiding.

    Al Houthi militias have launched five attacks in the past two days in a desperate attempt to regain their lost positions, but have been pushed back, the source told September Net.

    Al Houthi fatalities in the fight included Ali Mohammad Shaikh, the chief of the so-called Maran Battalion.

    A number of Iranian military advisers, and militiamen from Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group were also killed and their bodies transported to a local hospital.

    Maran in the south-west part of Saada is symbolically important for Al Houthis. Abdul Malek’s brother, Hussain, was killed by the Yemeni army in a Maran cave in 2004.

    Al Houthis have repeatedly used Saada as the launch pad for firing missiles into Saudi Arabia, which is leading the Arab coalition fighting the Iran-aligned extremists…”

    The provincial government media office in a statement said the young men were being transferred to eastern Nangarhar province under the guise of providing work for the collection of pine nuts.

    The statement further added that the suspects and the young men were arrested during an operation in Khogyani district of Nangarhar.

    The governor’s office also added that a delegation consisting of deputy provincial intelligence chief, police chief, officials from the provincial and district administrative government has been formed to investigate the incident.

    The detained suspects are in the custody for further questioning while the young men have been sent back to their relative provinces, the statement added.

    It is yet not clear for what purposes the young men were transferred to Nangarhar.

    However, the Taliban group and ISIS Khurasan loyalists often hire young men in their ranks to conduct terrorist related and insurgency activities.

    Both the Taliban and ISIS loyalists are active in some remote districts of Nangarhar as counter-terrorism operations are underway to eliminate the terrorist groups from the province.”

    ST. CATHARINES, Ont. — Police are searching for armed suspects following a shooting that sent several people to hospital in St. Catharines, Ont., on Thursday afternoon.

    Niagara regional police said they were focusing their search on a downtown area of the city west of Toronto, adding that they were dealing with multiple shooting scenes.

    “We are actively searching for armed suspects,” Const. Phil Gavin tweeted. “This is not an active shooter situation.”

    Gavin said police were called to the intersection of Church Street and Niagara Street at around 3:45 p.m., and said the nearby intersection of Queenston Street and Geneva Street was also affected.

    “We arrived on scene to find multiple shooting victims,” he wrote on Twitter, without specifying exactly how many were involved. “The victims have been transported by @NiagaraEMS to area hospitals.”

    Gavin said numerous officers, the K-9 unit and emergency responders are all on the scene.

    Police advised residents to stay out of the area, and employees of local businesses said they remained inside with doors locked until more information was available.
