What a beautiful morning. October has broken records for rainfall and I've sure been feeling it. I got rid of my car so my motorcycle is my only source of transportation right now. I used to joke and say I'm from Vancouver. If we didn't do anything in the rain we wouldn't get anything done. It is nice to get a break from the rain once in awhile and see the sun. This morning is magnificent. All those clouds of heavy rain has lifted to reveal fresh snow on the mountain peaks at higher elevations. Cypress even got a dusting of fresh snow. This is a screenshot from their web cam.
As reported in Bob Green's obituary, yesterday was his funeral. As I previously said I would not be covering the funeral or reporting on it. I'm not going to play paparazzi and report on who showed up and why. I'm letting his family, friends and associates pay their respects in peace.
What I have said about Bob Green and about Shaun Clary stands. History has recorded that. I'm not going to argue or debate about troll trash. That's not my thing. I simply state my opinion then move on and let history be the judge.
One blog reader just tipped me off to another like minded blogger named Daniel Hopsicker. Last year he made an interesting blog post about a new movie about Barry Seal and the CIA drug trafficking out of Mena Arkansas tied to Hillary Clinton. Barry Seal is being played by Tom Cruise. I just saw Tom Cruise in the new Jack Reacher movie. I liked it.
Variety dot com is reporting that "Tom Cruise’s cartel film Mena is now called American Made, and is moving from Jan. 6, 2017, to Sept. 29, 2017, Universal Pictures announced on Monday." After the election. Big surprise. The Agency got the family of Barry Seal to tie the film up in the courts first. Hillary Clinton is as dirty as they get. That's all I have to say on the matter.
So it does appear that Daniel Hopsicker is a like mind. I'm not the only one that shares some of those concerns. As for me, I'm just a rider on a western highway - from the mountains to the sea. I'm just a rider on a western highway, thank God I'm free. Peace.

CTV is reporting that "Shocking video has surfaced showing an RCMP officer dragging an elderly man down a flight of stairs following a heated strata meeting in Coquitlam Thursday night. The footage, which was uploaded to YouTube, begins with a group of officers surrounding an older couple in the stairwell of a Best Western hotel, where the strata was holding its annual general meeting. As a young girl cries and screams, one Mountie can be seen grabbing the elderly man, who is lying on the ground, and pulling him toward the stairs."Stop resisting," the officer yells before apparently yanking the man down a staircase."
The Coquitlam RCMP have a horrible reputation. They are the ones that kicked in the whistleblowers' door and seized all his hard drives after he went public about Jim Brown. They knowingly destroyed evidence by deleting his hard drives before returning them to him.
In this case the video is indeed very disturbing. The cop is seen dragging the senior down the stairs. Totally inappropriate. What's even more inappropriate is Superintendent Sean Maloney's response to the video. He says they're going to investigate the matter by looking into why they were called to the meeting trying to find some way to blame the senior.
During a protest people are often arrested for refusing to leave. They sit down and don't resist they simply refuse to comply. That is what this senior is doing. In those cases the police pick them up and carry they away. They don't drag them down a flight of stairs. It's very unprofessional as is the Coquitlam Police Chief's response. No wonder they destroyed evidence in the Jim Brown case. They have a lot to hide.

Scan BC is reporting that there was a double drive by shooting at 159 St & 110 Ave in Surrey. One victim DOA en route to the hospital. One of the reporters on scene pointed out that there was a fatal shooting of a gang member a few houses down the street in 2012. Fraser Heights is a nice area. This shooting took place right across from Erma Stephenson elementary school.
CTV is reporting that there was another shooting in Burnaby last night. Although multiple shots were fired, no one was injured. Global is reporting that "Residents say they heard what sounded like gunfire exchanged around 11 p.m. A vehicle was also seen racing away shortly after. When police arrived they found a bullet hole in an apartment building and a vehicle in the underground parking lot riddled with bullets. Its owner was found nearby uninjured. RCMP say he is known to them and is associated with a criminal organization."
The Kelowna Hells Angels clubhouse is in the news again. Kelowna Capital News is reporting that "Mounties arrested one suspect and seized property after a Tuesday afternoon raid of the Hells Angels clubhouse on Ellis Street. The Kelowna RCMP, partnered with officers of the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT), executed a search warrant just after 1 p.m. on the property in the 800 block of Ellis Street. 'Investigators have seized a travel trailer, allegedly reported stolen in Alberta, from the property and arrested a 50-year-old Alberta woman found inside that trailer,' said Const. Jesse O'Donaghey, in a press release. 'Investigators have also seized evidence from inside the residence as part of the ongoing investigation.'"
I am thrilled to hear that the Kelowna RCMP teamed up with ALERT, the Alberta Gang Task Force. After the huge success of the Kelowna Summer Jam in 2012, the Christy Clark government dismantled the BC Gang Task Force and cut funding making it compromised just like the Edmonton Police Service. Every time a police task force found organized crime, a government body dismantled that police task force. That is exactly what has happened to the OMGU and the BC Gang Task Force. ALERT has been doing a great job busting the Edmonton Hells Angels despite the fact that the EPS has been compromised for many years.
No doubt being in possession of stolen property will not help their case to keep their clubhouse in the court application to seize the clubhouse under proceeds of crime. Like I said they should just hand over that clubhouse as a consent order before they establish bad jurisprudence in the court system because that one is a lost cause. The Kelowna Hells Angels were involved in so much criminal activity only and idiot or a corrupt judge like Peter Leask would deny that application.

The Langley Times is reporting that "The Integrated Homicide Team said the human remains found on the side of a rural road in Langley on Wednesday morning are connected to gang activity. 'Currently, investigators do not believe the location of the remains is where the homicide occurred,' said Foster. 'I can't speak to how the body was discovered or the condition of the body,'she said. 'No doubt, this was a gruesome event that took place.'"
Global News reported that the body was dismembered. Rumors are swirling about the identity of the body but I'll wait until we receive official confirmation before commenting on that.
Update: CKNW and Kim Bolan are both reporting that IHIT have released the identity of the murder victim. It is indeed Shaun Alan Clary of Surrey. Blaze was lying again. When they say gang associate I'd have to say VERY loosely affiliated. He posted a picture of him with two Bikers and one of his friends was shocked and said who are the two guys with the cuts? (Turns out they are Teamsters Horsement not HAs)
Dismembered could simply mean he is no longer affiliated. I do not believe this had anything to do with the murder of Bob Green. Dumping the body in the general area was a opportunity to cover their tracks. Just like the Burnby Drive by where the victim's car drove into a house. Kim Bolan reported that he was a prospect of the Whiterock Hells Angels. There is no way either of these two guys had anything to do with the murder of Bob Green. I'm still not convinced the Burnaby shooting of the prospect wasn't internal seeing how there are so many racists within the club.
When the leader of Redd Alert for BC was shot in East Van, that was a high level associate shot by a rival. That is not the case here. Shaun might have smoked a little weed but he was by absolutely no means a high level drug dealer.
As for the police officer who said he had never heard of this kind of thing before, has he never heard of Bob Roth? Bob Roth was decapitated for a drug debt by the Whiteboy Posse who sell drugs for the Edmonton Hells Angels. His head was dumped in an alley in Edmonton while his body was dumped just outside of Edmonton in a rival drug dealers area.
William Edgar Taylor was convicted of murdering Timothy Salsman in a basement in the town of Hayter, near Provost. for a $1,500 drug debt. He refused to reveal where he dumped the victim's head and hands which were never recovered by the family. William Taylor was with the Whiteboy Posse who sell drugs for the Edmonton Hells Angels. So when he was collecting money for the debt, who do you think the debt was ultimately to?
In Prince George a member of the crew cutt off a guy's finger for a $170 drug debt. The Crew in Prince George sold crack for the Vancouver Hells Angels. Addicts were tortured for drug debts in the basement of crack shacks in Prince George all under the supervision of you know who.

The Vancouver Sun is reporting Linda Hepners' press release unveiling her crime promotion strategy for Surrey. The same article was also printed in the Vancouver Province and the Vancouver 24 Hours. Word for word thanks to Post Media mergers and the Attack of the Clones. This new strategy is nothing new. It's just more smoke and mirrors to appease the masses and pretend she is doing something about crime in Surrey. We've heard this all before. You can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.
Remember when they promised to map crime statistics instead of suppressing them? What a wonderful world that would be if they ever followed up on that promise. If they did that they would see the highest crime rates in Surrey correspond directly to where they let crack be sold in public. Instead of arresting the crack dealers that are selling fentanyl to unknowing customers, Linda Hepner and her media circus is dancing all around the crack dealers promoting their cause and their business. If we do not arrest the crack dealers that we see selling crack in public all this other bullsh*t is a complete waste of time. You are not fooling anyone any more.
Last year Tom Zytaruk from the Surrey Now reported that Surrey mayor says new strategy is not to comment on crime. Now all of a sudden she cares? Not likely. She only cares about appearances. The problem has not changed. If she cared she would have done something.

Global News is reporting that More than one kilogram of cocaine and nearly 150 fentanyl pills were seized from two Grande Prairie homes on Oct. 13, 2016. Karman Singh Grewal, 24, of Langley, B.C. and Elson Blue Joy, 22, of Kelowna, B.C. have been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.

The Edmonton Journal is reporting that Police are investigating a suspicious death after a 19-year-old man was found dead near the Alfred H. Savage Centre at 13204 Fox Drive around 8:30 p.m. Saturday. A 21-year-old suspect was picked up by police nearby, however no charges have been laid at this time.
The Vancouver Sun is reporting that A male victim has been taken to hospital after a shooting Monday morning in Delta.
The Abby News is reporting that Police are investigating a drive-by shooting that occurred at about 8 p.m. last night (Saturday). No one was injured but a home and car were hit with bullets. CBC also reports that yesterday human remains were found on a rural Abbotsford B.C. property.

CBC is reporting that "The province's police watchdog has completed its report into the death of Hudson Brooks, 20, who was shot and killed by police outside the south Surrey RCMP detachment last year. The Independent Investigations Office will now send its report to the Crown office for consideration of charges. That only happens when the IIO determines an officer may have committed a crime." "At the conclusion of a
In August of this year CBC reported that A member of the Independent Investigations Office visited the family of Hudson Brooks on Wednesday to provide them with more information about the case. Brooks's mother, Jennifer, says the IIO told her that her son appeared to be in distress in the early morning hours of July 18, 2015. She says she was told Brooks was walking in the middle of 152nd Street near 18th Avenue wearing only a pair of shorts and flip flops. "I guess he was causing a bit of a ruckus, so they called the police," Jennifer Brooks said. "The police officer called for backup. Backup came. Hudson started pounding on the second police car, pounding on the window and asking for help."
This confirms our initial report at the time when local witnesses claimed Hudson was unarmed running for his life from a mob at the same park that another skateboarder named Dario Bartoli was assaulted and murdered. Hudson was frantic running to the police for help and the police shot him dead. This new report has not disclosed how a police officer was shot when Hudson was unarmed running to the police for help but it has refered the case to the crown to consider if criminal charges should be laid agaist the officers involved.
At the time we reported how one witness claimed a rookie cop ordered Hudson to stop when he was running for his life. Since Hudson was frantic and failed to obey her direct command she drew her gun and shot themself in the leg. Then the officer frantically radioed for help saying officer down I've been shot. That is when other officers arrived on the scene and shot Hudson dead. It was a tragic mistake by a rookie cop. The truth needs to be told. Peace.
Rodrigo Duterte, the raging lunatic who has told citizens to shoot anyone they claim is a drug dealer on sight has officially embraced Communist China. After denouncing the US for not supporting his complete abandonment of civl liberty he has boldly endorsed Communism. Big surprise. This is what happens when you elect a dictator. He embraces dictatorships.
He has given up Scarborough Shoal, which China seized from the Philippines in 2012 and sparked demonstrations by Filipinos around the world. Duterte says "We cannot win that. We can’t beat China.” So instead he wants to join them. The question now remains are his fellow Filipinos prepared for their nation to become a Comunist satellite?
Say hello to political prisoners and organ harvesting. Anything to make a buck.
Speaking of Wayne Moriarty and media mergers, he just wrote an inspiring editorial in the Vancouver Province on the love of sobriety. He talked about how last week he came home to a strange woman passed out on the front lawn of his apartment building and talked about how that reminded him of his love of sobriety. Indeed.
It's not often you see the editor in chief write actual articles for the paper. Yet it appears in June of this year he stepped down as editor in chief and went back to being an editorial columnist. I wonder if that has anything to do with the media mergers? If all of these local papers are now owned by the same company, doesn't that mean one of the chief editors can take the job for more than one paper? Evidently so.
Harold Munro is the chief editor for the Vancouver Sun. He is now also listed as the editor in chief for the Vancouver Province. Things that make ya go hmmm.... Times have changed so they have. That's a sobering thought. Welcome to the new media order.

The Financial Post is reporting that "Postmedia holds the largest audience in Canada, with a nationwide readership of 11.1 million people on all platforms, dominating all other Canadian newspaper groups." The exact same article was in the Vancouver Province. At first I thought it was a joke but it wasn't in the comic section, it was in the news section. The reason why Postmedia has the largest readership in Western Canada is because they are the only media outlet. They now own almost all the newspapers here.
We've talked about media mergers and how it is concerning when all the media is owned by one entity because it becomes easier to control. Well, wait until you see where I'm going with this.
Here we have a news agency reporting on itself. The article states "According to a new study by Vividata, Postmedia leads the Torstar network by more than 2.9 million readers and the Globe and Mail by more than 5.2 million readers." Ah so Toronto still have two independent newspapers, the Toronto Star and the Globe an Mail. Time will tell how long before they too buckle and cave into the hostile takeover killing the freedom of the press once and for all. Honourable mention goes to the CBC who are also independent. For now.
In all fairness, the Toronto Sun confirmed the findings in this new report. Oh wait, they're owned by Postmedia as well. Same article, same media outlet. While this propoganda piece hit the airwaves, the Globe and Mail reported that Postmedia to cut more jobs as net loss spikes. At the same time, the CBC is reporting that Postmedia Network Canada Corp. says it intends to reduce staffing costs again as the company reports lower revenue and a deeper quarterly net loss.
I was joking when I said Postmedia could fire Keith Fraser now that Kim Bolan writes for the Vancouver Province as well as the Vancouver Sun. Shockingly, it looks like that just might be a reality in the new media order. Kim Bolan recently wrote an article that was printed in the Vancouver Province and instead of saying the Vancouver Sun has learned, she now says Postmedia has learned. Well let's take a look at what the new media empire did to Dan Murphy.
The Death of Political Satire
Yesterday it finally dawned on me that I hadn't seen an editorial cartoon in the paper for quite some time. My employer subscribes to the Vancouver Province so there are always several copies in the lunchroom at work. In 2015 the Vancouver Sun reported that "A longtime British Columbia editorial cartoonist described as a survivor among his Canadian colleagues is a victim of budget cuts after more than three decades at the same newspaper. The Victoria Times Colonist announced Tuesday that it can no longer afford to employ cartoonist Adrian Raeside."
I remember him. Budget cuts... The Victoria Times Colonist isn't part of the Postmedia empire as it was sold to Glacier Media in 2012 but it shows a disturbing trend. Political satire has been a long standing Canadian tradition. Removing political satire is another step towards eliminating the royal opposition and turning everything into one homogeneous machine of royal assent.
Now for the shocker. In 2015 the National Observer reported that editorial cartoonist Dan Murphy lost his job with the Vancouver Province for printing a cartoon that upset one of it's corporate advertisers. The story as also in Huffington Post and the CBC.
He claims he reigned after management said it was time for him to move on. Dan Murphy claims that after he made a video spoof of an Enbridge commercial, it was taken offline out of fears of upsetting the corporate advertiser. The story made the New York Times.
The National Observer reported that "In his meeting with Moriarty, Murphy says he was told Enbridge had complained to the Toronto head office of The Province’s owner, Postmedia Network Canada Corp., Canada’s largest newspaper chain. He says the order had come down to pull Murphy’s satire off the paper’s website – and that $1-million in Enbridge advertising was at stake."
Wayne Moriarty has a different recollection of the conversation but the fact remains, the spoof was pulled and Dan Murphy resigned. This has been one of the public's primary concerns with media mergers. When the news becomes censored because it may offend and affect advertizing revenue from corporate sponsors, the freedom of the press is diminished.
So what happens when all the editorial cartoonists are done away with though attrition and budget cuts? Will that be the end of political satire? Will that be the end of dissent? Does the media then simply become the mindless propaganda tool of the state? Heaven forbid.
I like Wayne Moriarty. He treated me fairly once. Years ago the Vancouver Province printed an article form the National Post mocking 911 truthers. I wrote in to complain that the article said 911 truthers concerns were unfounded yet the article didn't cite a single fact. Wayne and I started to argue back and forth about the issue. I cited Conrad Black's ownership of the National Post and other media outlets claiming that when he was in charge, if a reporter printed a labour friendly article they could lose their job. He passionately disagreed that was the case and we agreed to disagree.
I kept saying the bottom line is that you're only printing one side of the debate until finally he said fine, you write an article and I'll print the other side. I was shocked. I wrote an article and he printed it. Truthers were contacting me and ask how on earth I got that article published. I honestly said I'm not sure. One minute I'm in a heated argument with this guy and the next minute he says he'll print my side of the debate. That was fair. Sadly I don't see it happening again.
I understand the pressure to make money. I just think political satire is a Canadian tradition worth preserving. The public has to be able to question government polices. That is the fundamental aspect of a democratic society. Peace.

The BC RCMP are reporting that the seized a kilo of fentanyl from a suspicious vehicle just south of Nanaimo near Cassidy Airport on Vancouver Island last week. Now they just have to take the next step and arrest the drug dealers in Whalley selling fentanyl mixed with other drugs.
The Calgary Herald is reporting that "Authorities intercepted $10 million worth of cocaine at Alberta’s Coutts border crossing in the biggest such seizures of the drug in Prairie history. The 202 kg drugs were packed with goods in three separate shipments aboard commercial trucks, beginning with 60 packages of cocaine weighing 69 kg secreted in a cargo of televisions discovered Sept. 2. Another 40.5 kg of the drug was found two days later amid cargo of 2,000 Halloween costumes - the two making up the largest weekend seizure numbers for the Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) prairie region.
The largest was yet to come on Oct. 10 when 83 bricks of cocaine weighing 92.74 kg were seized from another commercial truck where it was hidden throughout its cab" The Calgary Sun is reporting that "In all, five men have been charged in the three busts with importing a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking. The suspects hail mainly from B.C. The amount of cocaine being shipped is definitely organized crime-related."
The Winnipeg Sun is reporting that "A judge has convicted prominent Hells Angels biker Rod Sweeney of assaulting a 14-year-old leukemia survivor and the boy’s uncle after the two were seen riding their bikes behind Sweeney’s house." This guy has been involved in Winnipeg gang violence for many years.

Local sources in Greece are reporting that Dusty Swanson was sentenced to 15 years without parole for second degree murder today. Full patch Alberta Hells Angels Nick Dragich and Brent Koziak were found guilty of accessory to murder and were sentenced to 5 years with parole. Sadly, that means the two accessories just get time served and walk away free. Nick participated in the beating. They also have to pay bail of 20,000 euros each.
As everyone here knows, high ranking BC Hells Angel Bob Green was shot dead on Sunday. Although I certainly didn't lose any sleep over the death of Jonathan Bacon, I want to be clear in that I am not happy about this murder and I do not support it.
I always thought Len Peltier would get shot before Bob. CKNW is reporting that 27-year-old Jason Francis Wallace is charged with the second degree murder of Bob Green. Jason was a member of the 856 who work for Len Peltier and Bob Green. Jason was charged with drug trafficking along with Lenny last year. It is highly likely Bob Green wanted him to take the fall for Lenny like many others have in the past and he said no.
This murder represents a crossroad for not only Bob Green but also for myself and the future direction of this blog. Obviously the family is struggling with the loss but also with the why. Instantly we all knew it was related to the drug trade. That was the why. We just didn't know the who or which one. We already have an answer to that question as well. It was not a rival, it was internal. Only it didn't come from above, this time it came from below. No wonder he turned himself into the police so fast. He knew he'd be killed if he wasn't in police custody.
I'm not a reporter, I'm an activist. I'm not here to sell newspapers and make money off of a family's tragedy. I'm here to help people see the consequences of their choices and encourage them to leave the life and have a fresh start on life. As I previously said, Bob Green was not a bad man. There are a lot worse out there. He was a good father, loyal husband and devoted friend. He also profited from the sale of drugs. So does the CIA, Hillary Clinton and Wall street.
Bob was a businessman. Sometimes it's hard to find ethical investments. Often when we invest our money, we don't really want to know about the sweatshops or the exploitation that goes on behind the scenes as long as our investment turns a profit. Lenny and Caylan are pieces of garbage. No disrespect to the family. Every family has black sheep so to speak.
Lenny was supplying crack houses in Surrey back when the Surrey House of Horrors was in existence. Larry Mizen was a debt collector that worked for Lenny. Lenny is a weasel who hides behind John Crowston and uses Bob Green's name. Now that Bob is gone the industry will take care of Lenny themselves. Many sources claim that Len Peltier is a rat. Well, he doesn't call it that. When you get busted and get someone who works for you to take the fall they don't call that being a rat. They call that the price of doing business.
It's pretty obvious that Jason Wallace was expected to take the fall for Lenny again and evidently he did not approve of the idea. Why should Lenny the weasel sell out everyone that works for him over and over again? It's also possible Bob Green said that since the heat was on the 856 it was time to change it up and disband the 856 until the heat is off. It's quite possible that the puppet bit the hand that fed him. Which just goes to show, even a 12 year old kid can pull a trigger.
As for the crossroads and the change in direction of the blog, I will reiterate George Christie and Kerri Krysko have convinced me that not all Hells Angels are bad. Not all of them are involved in criminal activity. Many of them are but many more are not. In this case, Bob Green was. Yet he was not like David Giles who boasted that his friendship was for sale or the many pieces of garbage with patches running around Edmonton.
Bob Green's kids are good. His family wasn't involved in the business. This tragedy reminds me of a mother who spoke at the Gang Violence Rally in Bear Creek Park which inspired me to start this blog. They released doves in memory of loved ones lost to gang violence. One mother stood up and said she lost her son to gang violence. Only unlike Chris Mohan and Ed Schellenberg he was not an innocent victim. He was involved in the drug trade. Yet she was hurting too and grieving the loss of her son just like Bob Green's family is now.
The question is, will the club and the press let the family grieve in peace or will they turn his funeral into another circus side show promoting the drug trade when his family had nothing to do with that life and are suffering now as a result. Peace.

The Langley Times is reporting that "Homicide police are investigating the death of a male in Langley, B.C. Langley RCMP say officers were called on a report of suspicious circumstances Sunday morning and arrived to find a male who had injuries consistent with foul play. They say he died as a result of his injuries. RCMP say the attack appears to have been targeted." The identity has not yet been released but one reader claims it is someone signifigant in the local drug trade.
I've received confirmation on the identity of the victim and I am indeed shocked. I always thought Lenny would get shot before he would. I never really had beef with him. He was pretty far removed from the Janice Shore incident. Lenny was more directly involved in that. I will pause before discussing his ID publically to give all the family, friends and associates time to be notified properly. They shouldn't hear it first from Gangsters out. My condolences to the family.
This is big news though. Perhaps the tide is changing. I do hear good things about this guy. I hear good things about his kids. There are a lot of others that would be more logical choices. Makes me wonder about motive. Kim's picked up on it now as well. I'm going to pause for a bit.
There was another shooting Sunday night in the parking lot of the Vancouver Game Farm. That is messed up. The Peace arch News is reporting that there has been an arrest in Surrey possibly related to one of the Langley shootings. The Stopru is reporting that Vincenzo Spagnolo, former right-hand man and friend of the deceased godfather Vito Rizzuto, was killed Saturday night in Laval. It's time for a little Ghetto Gospel so it is.
Update: CKNW is reporting that Arrest made in shooting death of Hells Angels member Bob Green This was an 856 member who was charged with drug trafficking. Bob probably wanted him to take the fall for Lenny. The 856 is their own puppet club. They are not a rival.

We are hearing a lot of bizarre stories about a heroin epidemic in the US similar to the crack epidemic there back in the /80's. For many of us it's hard to comprehend. Most people think although heroin is highly addictive, you have to be pretty far gone to stick a needle in your arm. Yet we are hearing more and more reports of middle class families resorting to doing exactly that.
In 2014 the Guardian reported A deadly crisis: mapping the spread of America's drug overdose epidemic. In 2015 Time Magazine reported that Heroin Use in U.S. Reaches Epidemic Levels. In 2016 RT dot com reported that Unprecedented: Heroin use & overdose deaths triple in US.
So what happened? Recently Activist Post claimed part of the problem is the DEA Protecting Big Pharmaceutical companies. I am hesitant about headlines that refer to the failure of the drug war. The drug war hasn't failed. It's just that many agencies are on the wrong side of that war.
The Activist Post reports that "Purdue made $31 billion playing its part in getting America hooked on opioids, under the guise of effective pain treatment. When people could no longer afford OxyContin or other patented painkillers, they turn to its close cousin heroin, which is far cheaper and relatively easy to obtain through the black market."
Likewise, USA Today reports that "Heroin use is reaching into new communities - addicting more women and middle-class users - as people hooked on prescription painkillers transition to cheaper illegal drugs, a new report shows." The common thread is that people are getting addicted to prescription painkillers then turn to cheaper illegal drugs like heroin.
Logistically two villains have merged motivated by the same greed. The big pharmaceutical companies coveting their patent monopolies, exploit consumers as much as the market will allow. The other villain is those that produce and profit from heroin production. Don't forget who created the Golden Triangle and what country is the largest producers of opium in the world.

Local sources in Greece are reporting that the three Canadian Hells Angels from Alberta on trial for a vicious assault that resulted in murder were in court yesterday to have the matter adjourned until Tuesday for cross examination and a possible a verdict will be rendered.
Dusty Swanson (in the top picture on the right) a prospect for Westridge, formally from the Dirty flu appears to be taking the fall for the patch holders as per usual. Nick Dragich was one of the Hells Angels posing with Rob Ford when he was mayor of Toronto. Lets hope Greece has a better judicial system than Spain. More information will be forthcoming.
Just for the record, this is a picture of the guy they beat to death:
This is a picture of Nick Dragich:
Nick is huge and has a background in MMA. Nobody likes a bully.
Having one guy take the fall for this murder is pretty offensive. Compare this case with the brutal murder of Dain Philips in Kelowna. Dain was a big man. So was Robert Thomas who yelled "So you want to f*ck with the Hells Angles?!" as he confronted him with a baseball bat and a car load of members and associates.
Dain saw he was outnumbered, raised his hands in a neutral position of surrender and said he wasn't there to fight. Thomas hit him several times with the baseball bat. Dain did not fight back. When Dain was hit in the head with the baseball bat that finally brought him to the ground. Once Dain was on the ground everyone else joined in kicking and punching him while he was on the ground and beat him to death with hammers. It was a disgustingly brutal and cowardly act. It wasn't just one person involved.
In the Greece murder there is no way just one person was involved. With the Hells Angels it's all about fight me, fight my gang. All Nick had to do was stand there as a Hells Angel and the victim would have been paralyzed with fear while Dusty beat him to death. I do not believe the others did not join in. Even if they didn't their presence aided the murder through intimidation and their presence supporting it not stopping it makes them accessories to murder at the very least. They were the patch holders, Dusty was the prospect. All they had to do was say stop and he would have. They didn't. That makes the criminally culpable.
Reuters is reporting that "Hacked emails published by Wikileaks this week appear to show Qatar pledging to donate $1 million to Hillary Clinton's family's charitable foundation, despite her promise to curb new donations by foreign governments while U.S. secretary of state."
Why would Qatar "donate" $1 million to Hillary Clinton personally? Wait 'till I tell ye. Qatar arms ISIS. Julian Assange claimed that Hilary Clinton was shipping arms to Qatar for ISIS. This $1 million payment is part of the paper trail.
It is rather amusing how the Rothschilds owned American media is spinning this one. Front Page Magazine is reporting that "WikiLeaks released an August 2014 e-mail from Hillary Clinton to John Podesta, who currently serves as her campaign chairman, stating that the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region. Evidently President Obama has not heeded Hillary’s concern, or chose to ignore it." AYFKM! That's like blaming Obama for Operation Fast and Furious when Hillary Clinton was the author of it. Hilary Clinton wasn't telling Obama to avoid Qatar, she was accepting money from them for services rendered.
"What makes Hillary’s e-mail noteworthy is the irony that the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and groups aligned with them, have not only been major funders of ISIS and other jihadist organizations, as she indicated, but they also have been big funders of the Clinton Foundation for years. Hillary has had no trouble taking money for her foundation from regimes that fund terrorists, oppress women, execute or imprison gays and apostates, and severely punish the exercise of free speech."
"In a letter from Senator Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary, to Attorney General Loretta Lynch dated August 15. 2016, Grassley noted that prior to Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, “Qatar was the recipient of approximately $271 million in military related export deals. During her tenure, Qatar was the recipient of approximately $4.3 billion – a 1,482% increase.” Saudi Arabia received a 97% increase in such export deals during her tenure."
"With Hillary Clinton as president, we may hear some tougher talk than we have heard from President Obama criticizing Saudi Arabia and Qatar for their support of jihadist groups and their funding of the spread of jihadist ideology. However, it will be just words, since Hillary will not want to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs for her foundation."
ISIS is a creation of the CIA and Hillary Clinton is making a lot of money arming them.
Israel admitted to providing aid to Syrian rebels to overthrow Assad. Just like the Americans. They admit to supporting al-Nusra who are in fact Al Qaeda and are closely affiliated with ISIS. So once again the Americans and the Israelis are supporting ISIS just like CSIS.

CBC is reporting that A well-known Saskatchewan mining contractor has died in a plane crash near Anahim Lake, B.C., 560 kilometers southwest of Prince George. This is Leonard Banga, the owner of Xtreme Mining who fired full patch member Jesse Bitz for sleeping on the job. After he was fired, Jesse Bitz was caught on camera threatening to kill him. Jesse jumped him Dec. 31, 2012 and his old boss kicked his ass. Leonard stood up to the Hells Angels and adopted a policy of not hiring people tied to organized crime. Now he's dead. The cause of the accident is not known. Well it bloody well better be investigated.

Yesterday I saw the play A Good Way Out at the Pacific Theatre in Vancouver. It's a very intimate theatre setting with seating on both sides of the stage. The play was very realistic. For those of us who know, perhaps a little too realistic for comfort. It's about a guy who gets caught up in a biker gang. He gets tired of being ripped off by the "family" and tries to leave the life. Early on in the play there is a line that explains the title but I don't want to spoil the ending for others.
One review in the Vancouver Courier said Wheeler, who has played everything from Stephen Harper in PROUD, to Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Story and Prime Minister Angus McLintock in the Best Laid Plans, makes your skin crawl in this role. That is very true.
The play is based on a true story. I do believe the club ripped the guy off but I dont believe he was skimming in real life any more than I believe Britney Irving was a rat. She was not. That was a bold faced lie they made up after they had her killed. We all know who put Joey Verma up to it. That is one crime that will never be solved in this life but it will be solved in the life hereafter.
I have previously expressed the concern that some undercover police officers go undercover because they covet that life. I do not. There is nothing in that life that appeals to me. They have absolutely nothing that I want. I am grateful that I am not part of that life nor have I ever been. That most certainly doesn't make me better than anyone else who is or has. It just makes me different. I'm just a broke ass bitch but I still rather be me. A poor man is better than a liar. Peace.

Susan Lindauer was a whistleblower who was the second non Arab American ever indicted under the patriot act. They used the Patriot Act to remove her rights to a fair trial because she was a whistleblower. This is a must watch video to set the stage for the next round of discussions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQjTYmDKPaI
"My law firm defended Ms. Susan Lindauer against federal charges of acting as an unregistered Iraqi Agent in conspiracy with the Iraqi Intelligence Service. I assure you that Ms. Lindauer's story is shocking, but true. It's an important story of this new political age, post-9/11."
"As her attorney, I maintained very high legal standards for validating Ms. Lindauer 's claims that she worked as a U.S. Intelligence Asset, supervised by members of the CIA and Defense Intelligence Agency. Before agreeing to represent her, I took steps to corroborate her story through independent sources that I considered to be extremely high caliber. Those included former Congressional staff, international journalists, and several U.S. and Scottish attorneys involved with the Lockerbie Trial at Camp Zeist. I know some of these people socially and professionally. Ms. Lindauer's story checked out. She has an extraordinary personal history, and I believe it's true." Brian Shaughnessy July 1, 2010 taken from the forward to her book Extreme Prejudice.
Speaking of CIA drug trafficking, Susan Lindauer claims the CIA were accused of heroin trafficking in Lebanon. She claims the Defence Intelligence Agency filed a complaint about it and had conducted an investigation gathering evidence in Lebanon to prove their case. They boarded Pan Am flight 103 with the evidence and it was subject to a "terrorist" bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. She claims the real person responsible for the Lockerbie bombing lives 8 miles from her house, in Fairfax County, Virginia with asylum and protection from the CIA.
Turns out it was indeed Major Charles McKee, of the Defence Intelligence Agency, who filed the complaint and gathered evidence in Beirut. McKee, Gannon and three other members of the team decided to fly back to CIA HQ and expose the COREA unit’s deal with al- Kassar. They booked seats on Pan Am 103. In his book, Lockerbie: The Tragedy of Flight 103, Scottish radio reporter David Johnston described how CIA agents helicoptered into Lockerbie shortly after the crash. They were looking for McKee’s suitcase.
Immediately after the Lockerbie Bombing, a quantity of heroin was found on a Lockerbie golf course and a suitcase full of heroin was discovered by a farmer a couple of miles to the east. (The Lockerbie trial: a top-level cover-up? The Guardian)
