Trudeau Liberals stonewall Rebel investigation into Freeland’s “weird” airport photo-op with Rahaf Mohammed

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Last month a Saudi teenager named Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun fled her family by jumping on a flight to Thailand. 

Then, after having her passport taken away by a Saudi diplomat, leaving her stranded in Bangkok, she began making appeals for asylum on Twitter.

Alqunun said that if she returned to her family, she would face abuse, persecution and maybe even death, after renouncing Islam.

Her tweets for help from a Bangkok hotel room trended internationally, and to the Canadian government.

Never ones to pass up an opportunity to virtue signal to the rest of the world about what do-gooders they are, they granted Alqunun asylum and had her land on Canadian soil in an astounding eight days.

When she landed at Toronto's Pearson airport, the spectacle was enormous. Global Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland hung off the girl and paraded her around in front of the media like a partisan prop.

I wanted to know how that debacle came to be and, how Alqunun managed to receive warp speed service from both Global Affairs and Citizenship and Immigration Canada while Yazidis languished for 15 months in immigration purgatory, and persecuted Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi spent three dangerous months waiting for Canada to intervene on her behalf.

I filed a Freedom of Information request with both ministries to:

“...provide copies of all documents including emails, memos, briefing notes, communication plans, Q&As, media lines, text and or instant messages, waivers etc regarding the planning and preparation for the arrival at Toronto Pearson airport of Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun, and the presence of the Minister of Foreign Affairs to welcome her, covering the time from January 1st 2019 to January 14th 2019.”

Today I'll show you the responses I received from each, about one week apart.

And in both cases, I didn't get information. I got stonewalled.

Conveniently, both ministries are taking an extension beyond the statutory 30 days to provide the information.

Instead of one month, it will be a total of seven months before we know how Alqunun got the help she needed so quickly to escape Islamic extremists, while so many other women, did not.

Never forget Chrystia Freeland’s Nazi background.

Chrystia was obviously there to provide a parka and some winter advice. And of course a virtue signalling photo op.

Now that she is a Canadian, she will be able to reunify with her family and they will all be coming here.

A government of imbeciles ruling over the country of disappearing sheep. Nothing to be surprised of.

Freeland & Trudeau cynically staged a “Dog and Pony Show” to showcase Rahaf Mohammed coming to Canada as a legitimate refugee.

Freeland even falsely introduced Ms. Mohammed as a “new Canadian”.

Rahaf Mohammed didn’t appreciate how she was being used as cheap, partisan prop for the Trudeau regime (complete with a UN cap and Canada hoodie!).

She had no legal representation present to advise her prior to her pre-planned, staged debut.

Freeland’s job performance as Minister of Foreign Affairs has been poor and even embarrassing to Canada, so she staged a event designed to improve public perception of her (obviously with Trudeau’s prior knowledge & consent).

What more could we expect from someone whose only professional experience is as a part-time high school drama teacher?

Nothing about these muslim “refugees” makes any sense apart from the fact that they come here to take and offer NOTHING in return. Does anybody recall Adolf Hitl…. I mean, Trudeau state, “Canada needs immigrants to bolster our economy” speech about two years ago? Listen to the hypocrisy behind those words. Yes, Canada does need immigrants to boost our economy but how do you boost the economy when the immigrants arriving refuse to work and rely on the taxpayer to fully support them? I’m not an economist but common sense tells me that this is not the way to boost and strengthen an economy but rather a great way to destroy it. A can of Tuna has a higher IQ than Trudeau.

This was just a well orchestrated exercise to get this teen into Canada. How can we believe that she could barricade herself in a hotel room with a mattress against the door and carry on a live feed on her phone without the authorities entering her room? I also don’t believe she could have arranged and paid for a flight or arranged a visa without her families knowledge. Biggest question for me is – were Canadian officials complicit in this farce or were they duped?

Glitz for the Bought-Off Central Canada Smearedia. The different slippery slant provided to Anglo-Canadian Cutural & Values. Frequently quite different to what is provided to the Franco-Canadien Culture & different Values*.

As professed by Just in Trudeauce when ever He mistakenly believes the Bias will not be read by Anglo-Canadian Cultural & Values Citizens; the smearedia pf Central Canada knows and doesn’t give a darnation. Justin is really only protecting His & Princess Sofie’s future when another misinformation gaffe gives him a chance to meet his Wish as President of Quebec.

Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun fled her family: was it a teenager temper tantrum? Did she really denounce Islam, or is it something to say to get Western sympathy? Isn’t it strange how a Saudi government official knew when she was landing and was there to confiscate her passport?

In China they are forcing Muslims to eat pork to show that they are integrated and loyal to China. Alqunun renounced Islam. Give her a ham and cheese sandwich and watch what happens next; will she or won’t she take a bite and swallow.

Let me see: Christian under threat of death? Three months and counting. Other religious refugees who aren’t Muslim (and under attack by Muslims)? Takes more than a year, and no more allowed. Muslim teen taking a hissy fit? From start to finish eight days. And when she gets here she is part of a media circus with red shoes Freeland and a $50,000 support cheque waiting for her.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, Freeland isn’t doing much about Canadians held in China or about the clause she missed in the USMCA where Mexico – and not Canada – is exempt from restrictions on US government contracts. Probably was too busy handing out Popsicles to the press standing in the street on a hot summer day in Washington, or publicly insulting Trump. What a useless ditz she is.

Isn’t this Liberal government supposed to be the most transparent Canadian government in our history? Please, don’t tell me that King Baby Doc Trudeau (Peace Be Upon Him/Piece of Ass Be Near Him) lied to his minions!

Dave Sutton 42 min ago—“-Recently I learned that a group of Syrian “christians” arrived in Canada but it has now been revealed that they were all muslims and nothing is being done about the fact that they LIED to come here.”
Dave, I appreciate that story. What I find difficult to understand is why did they lie when Trudeau loves Muslims more than Christians?
The answer may be that when you are sponsored, you receive individual attention, eg. English lessons, your favorite food, private room ect..

Charred Remains 10 hr. ago," sticking with the thread this girl should be in the witness protection kind of program .I still believe the girls life is in danger in Canada. Islamaphobia is real and this young lady might just prove that theory. "
She gets 24 hr. protection in Canada at our expense. Why can’t we bring in normal people that may have religion, but it doesn’t run shotgun over their daily movements?

Off topic of SGR’s article:

I love the free speech aspect of THEREBEL

I hate the fact that because of the free speech aspect, trolls, and egoists pollute this site as they take total advantage with their ego and vanity stroking BS and fill up that space with their virtue signaling and trolling crap!
It’s enough to make a man want to kick Voltaire in the nuts…
This is the kind of between-a-rock-and-a-hard-place-morality the left just doesn’t get!
The left has no honour…or integrity…or morals…or principles…and how can you if you are a moral relativist!
If we don’t effectively deal with the irrational and delusional demon spawn on the left…they WILL be dealing with us!

I’m somewhat confused but at the same time I don’t want to point and say that Rahaf is lying about anything she said. My point is this. in islam there is a doctrine called “taqiyya” which simply translates into “lying for the faith (islam)”. Muslims are encouraged to lie through their teeth to mislead non muslims in order to get what they want or get the upper hand over them. This includes denying their faith, cursing allah and denouncing islam itself. All of this is permitted in islam and there are no penalties incurred upon the muslim as long as they believe in their hearts that they remain devout muslims. The issue that concerns me is how do we know Rahaf REALLY was in fear of her life, or is this just a rouse to bypass the entire immigration system (as laid out by jihadi trudeau) to allow his muslim friends into Canada? How do we know that Rahaf is really in danger? How do we know she didn’t lie to come here and now she’s going to bring her family and friends over here to enjoy the “free” money trudeau is handing out? How do we know that she is not an ISIS agent setting up a base camp in Canada? I would like to know where the proof in all of her claims is.
Recently I learned that a group of Syrian “christians” arrived in Canada but it has now been revealed that they were all muslims and nothing is being done about the fact that they LIED to come here. They mislead the very people who sponsored them and took their money and resources that have been handed to them under false pretenses.
If lying is a requirement in islam then what assurances do we have that what comes out of these people’s mouths is true? If there are no penalties for muslims who lie to come to Canada then who exactly is arriving on a daily basis? Do we have conclusive evidence that ISIS is NOT setting up camps across this nation knowing that they are immune to our laws and will not be deported? If the CONVICTED terrorist Khadr was “rewarded” for his terrorist acts then who else is about to win the “terrorist lottery” in Canada? Am I being paranoid here or is there truth to anything I have just stated?

7 months you say. hmmmm, well in my books that should take us to the election during which this new islamic poster child ( not to be confused with the Syrian poster child trudeau/liberals used in 2015) will no doubt be in top priority being used for yet another bleeding heart win – along with the right of all invaders to vote the minute they touch our soil and of course the liberal right to foreign interference and foreign money – all of which will keep him in power to the end of time- which for canada and what is left of we ACTUAL canadians, about one year at best.
Give it up Rebel. the war is lost because of lies, theft, treason and of course good old canuks who are too lazy , apathetic, and too busy shopping to be bothered to stop him! Besides canuks think it is the job of someone else to come save their asses however NO ONE CARES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and why should they? I mean they have enough problems of their own and what’s more, trudeau gave them all the FINGER!!
He also KILLED our own military so again, NO ONE IS COMING TO SAVE OUR SORRY ASSES!!!
