KidsPlay Foundation hosts Kabaddi tournament in Surrey

The KidsPlay Foundation and the Canada Kabaddi Fedration BC hosted the second anual youth World Cup of Kabaddi in Surrey today at the Bell Centre. Kabaddi is a traditional sport from India that combines wrestling with rugby. post live videos of Kabaddi tournaments. .

Blaine Harbor Music Festival and Camp

Yesterday was the conclusion of another successful Blaine Harbor Music Festival and Camp. For many years Blaine has put on an impressive jazz festival and camp teaching highshcool students jazz and showcases those talents in free open air concerts at the H street and G street plazas.

The Vancouver jazz festival is nice but it's different. It's hosts many different jazz venues across the city but it doesn't provide opportunities for kids to learn jazz. That's the Blaine jazz festivals specialty. Talented musicians from across the US come and teach during the camp. Greg Hopskins is a famous trumpet player from Boston who comes every year as well as Greta Matassa who is a well known local jazz vocalist from Seattle. Both individuals as well as many others including long time contributors like Lou Abbott, Clipper Anderson, Nick Biello and Ted DeCorso have dedicated years of their lives teaching kids jazz.

The camp also branches out into other forms of music as well. Charlie Porter along with Gregor Huebner and Jovino Santos Neto have picked up the torch and are continuing the New Directions program that teaches kids how to remix hard core classical arrangements with modern pop songs. This year they did an impressive cello concerto remixing a traditional Bach piece with an Eminem tune. It was awesome. If you have kids and you want them to get involved in something positive, this is the place to send them.

Portugal charges 89 Hells Angels after Lisbon attack

DW is reporting that "Members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club were indicted for attempting to kill four people and injuring others with knives, axes and batons at a restaurant in Lisbon. The gang was banned by the Netherlands in May."

"Prosecutors allege that the gang's members tried to kill four people and seriously injured others last year at a restaurant on the outskirts of Portugal's capital, Lisbon. The restaurant was destroyed in the Hells Angels attack. At the time of the restaurant attack, the Hell Angels was involved in a gang war for control of illicit guns and drug trade, according to authorities."

Hells Angels from Germany were arrested in Mallorca on a small island off the coast of Spain back in 2013. They were charged with drug trafficking, trafficking in humans, extortion and running prostitution rings. February of this year the Majorca Daily Bulletin reported that the case is coming to trial and that "The centre of the gang's operations was Playa de Palma, where brothels were used to finance its network."

"The Hells Angels case was one element that led to the investigation into police corruption in Palma and ultimately to the Cursach case." In 2018 the Majorca Daily Bulletin reported that one of the two officers arrested was the contact for the madame, the arranger of alleged prostitute parties for police, politicians and public service employees."

Are you sure this wasn't the BC Gang Task force frequenting the Garden of Eden in Kelowna?

In Portugal and Spain they arrest Hells Angels for Prostitution. In BC they do not.

Ontario Residents angry about Amber Alert alarms in the middle of the night

Narcity is reporting that "Police have once again been receiving complaints from residents after issuing an Ontario Amber Alert at around 3:00 AM on Thursday." This is where the government crosses the line and becomes way too intrusive.

People were understandably upset because they didn't want these alarm sounds on their cell phones in the middle of the night. "York Regional Police emergency dispatchers were forced to deal with several complaint calls overnight from residents who were upset that the alert woke them. Journalist Jeremy Cohn claims that some of the calls have been abusive and very rude."

"We apologize for the inconvenience, but when there are kids' safety at risk, we pull out all the stops, and this was just one of the tools that was being used,” York Regional Police Const. Andy Pattenden said while explaining how police dealt with the calls.

You are not listening. The public doesn't want to get these alarm notifications every time a kid goes missing. Send a press release out the the media not to every residents private cell phone. That is WAY too intrusive. You mean well but what you are doing is not right.

You're just a public servant. The public pays your wages. STFU and do as your told.

Gas Fraud at the Price Fixing Inquiry

The Canadian Press is reporting that "Gasoline prices in British Columbia have risen in line with land costs and credit card processing fees but that doesn't fully explain why they're so much higher than in other parts of Western Canada, a new report says." BULLSH*T! The price of gas has risen in BC because of Price Fixing. There is NO other explanation.

The price of bread, eggs or land has absolutely nothing to do with the price of oil. The price of oil drops and they raise the price of gas at the pumps. They charge as much as they can simply because they can. The gas companies are lying again and are in contempt for failing to produce the required documentation about their profits per litre. Jail them. We need to file a class action lawsuit against them like they did back east.

The Criminal Culpability of Jason Kenney

Alberta Gang Task force seize 6 kilos of cocaine and 2 kilos of crystal meth from BC

The Edmonton Journal is reporting that "More than $1 million in cash, drugs and cars were seized by the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) after a nine-month investigation dubbed Project Embrace. Investigators say the operation involved an Edmonton group importing drugs from B.C. and distributing them in Alberta, particularly in the communities of Bonnyville, Lloydminster, St. Paul, Cold Lake, Little Smoky and Frog Lake." Those aren't bags of N64 games.

"More than six kilograms of cocaine, two kilograms of methamphetamine, almost $350,000 in cash, 18 kilograms of a cocaine buffing agent and a 2007 Volvo XC90 with a hidden compartment were seized. Six people are facing drug trafficking and other charges, including an Edmonton man alleged to be at the centre of the operation. Police searched four Edmonton homes and two Vancouver apartments as part of the operation and seizures."

Once again the Alberta Gang Task force saves the day while the completely compromised BC Gang Task force sends out press releases about old N64 games. GMAFB.

Who the f*ck do you think this Edmonton drug ring was tied to? The Surrey RCMP should bust the Hells Angels drug trafficking out of Shakerz. Failing to do so is criminal culpability.

Juel Stanton's son targeted in RCMP Fraud

The Burnaby Now is reporting that "Dillon Juel Stanton, 29, told the court he robbed small businesses to fuel drug addiction sparked by unresolved trauma from witnessing his father's 2010 murder." For f*ck sakes. Coquitlam RCMP drama queen Bryon Massie held a press conference displaying some of the stolen property seized in the operation. A bunch of old N 64s. How old are those video games? They're virtually worthless.

"Nineteen-year-old Dillon Juel Stanton, son of notorious ex-Hells Angel Juel Ross Stanton, was at home the day his father was gunned down in the family’s backyard in 2010." Get a life. Put him in rehab and leave him alone.

Juel's son is obviously not affiliated with the club that killed his father. He's a low level thief supporting a drug addiction. He was charged with using an imitation firearm to commit a serious offence and with one count of possessing an illegal firearm. He wasn't charged with using the firearm to commit a criminal offence. Oh but he had a pistol grip on his shotgun. GMAFB. My Mossberg Maverick came with a pistol grip straight from Canadian Tire. That is not an illegal firearm as long as the overall lengh in more than 660 mm or 26 inches and if it's a 470 mm or 18.5 inch barrel it doesn't have to be registered. It's a non restricted firearm. Stop lying.

BTW You measure the shotgun barrel length from the inside not the outside. That's the problem. So many RCMP officers have absolutely no idea what the firearm laws are in Canada. You really should take a course. In Canada shotgun barrels have to be 18.5 inches not 18.

The Coquitlam RCMP... wasn't sleazebag Jim Brown from the Coquitlam RCMP? As soon as it was mentioned witnesses saw a picture of Jim Brown in a threesome with Dave Pickton, the Coquitlam RCMP kicked in the whistle blower's door and deleted all the evidence. The Coquitlam RCMP is dirty as f*ck. Do something useful for a change.

Dillon's father was completely f*cked over by the club. The day the news broke of his murder witnesses saw David Giles in Kelowna having a serious talk with some younger members as if he was explaining to them why they did it. David Giles was a POS. Juel Stanton wasn't any more violent than Tony Terezakis who filmed himself beating the life out of drug addicts who owed him money. Juel Stanton was killed right before his next court date.

They didn't want him to be the first BC HA to get criminal org status. They saved that privilege for David Giles, the POS that ordered Juel's murder. With friends like that, who needs enemies.

Juel needed some money for lawyers. He had it but he was ripped off by another worthless POS in the club. I'm not going to name the member or state what the money went to. Someone else will do that and I'm not going to bite their sh*t. My point is that there is no L&R in the BC Hells Angels. Only Greed and Betrayal. History has recorded that.

Ironclad: Protecting the Maga Carta

Speaking of civil liberty, the movie Ironclad is now on Netflix. It's about protecting the Magna Carta which was a precursor to the Declaration of Independence. It granted rights and liberties to the nobles. The Constitution and the Charter of Rights grants rights and liberties to everyone.

Canadian govt to fund defence of Smuggler’s Inn owner

The Surrey Now Leader is reporting that "A U.S. inn owner facing charges in Canada relating to human smuggling has had an application to have his defence funded by the Canadian government granted." This is obviously about the Charter Right to legal representation.

David MacAlister, director of Simon Fraser University’s school of criminology said “The rights that we have in the charter are applicable to all people.” I agree. Is this precedent setting? Since you don't have to be a Canadian citizen to be protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights, does that mean you don't have to be an American citizen to be protected by the US Constitution?

The US border agents at the Truck border crossing once told me my client didn't have the right to legal representation at the border because they weren't an American citizen they were Canadian. They said the US Constitution did not apply the Immigration act did. That my friend is the root of all evil. The US Constitution says no state shall deny to any person within it's jurisdiction equal protection of the law. Yet it does. Especially at the border. That is not right.

Civil liberty - only available in Canada you say? Pity.

The Jeffrey Epstein case

Global is reporting that "American billionaire and financier Jeffrey Epstein is facing new charges for the alleged sex trafficking of minors, some as young as 14 years old. At the same time, a court order from last week to unseal roughly 2,000 pages of documents from a defamation case related to 2014 allegations against Epstein could spell trouble for many of the prominent businessman's powerful friends -- including one described at the time as a well-known Prime Minister."

"The charges laid on Monday appear at this time to be similar but distinct from a series of allegations made by two individuals in 2014, which accused Epstein and a number of world leaders of sexual abuse. These petitioners included in their filings not only descriptions of sexual abuse by Epstein, but also new allegations of sexual abuse by several other prominent individuals, 'including numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well‐known Prime Minister, and other world leaders,' states an order to unseal records issued last week by a New York appeals court."

Things that make ya go hmmm...

BTW Bill Clinton is full of sh*t. He knew nothing about Monica Lewinsky either.

As for the Donald Trump cult, he is not the f*cking messiah. You all need professional help. See him for what he is. A greedy pig who has a long history of entitlement when it comes to women. However, in this picture of him with Jeffrey Epstein Trump is with his current wife Melania and Jeffrey Epstein is with Ghislaine Maxwell who was not underage. Mr Bill however, was a freak

Steven Seagal on the other hand has a long list of sexual harassment allegations as well as an admiration for girls that look under age which has been recently confirmed by local sources. Katherine Heigl claims that when she had just turned 16 Steven Seagal told her that he had girlfriends her age. That seems to be a way of life in Hollywood. I preferred New York.

Jay Dobyns is no friend of mine

Sometimes you need to be less concerned with what the world thinks and be more concerned with maintaining your own self respect. I've tried to keep my mouth shut out of respect for all parties involved but enough is enough. The cycle of bullsh*t needs to come to an end.

Jay Dobyns is full of sh*t. He is NOT an authority on organized crime. He is a wannabe never was. That is all he is and ever will be. He wrote a book about himself called No Angel. Well his ghost writer wrote it for him. Indeed he is no Hells Angel. He never was. He wanted to be but he never made the cut. His claim to fame was lying to the Hells Angels about killing a Mongol. That is his claim to fame and his five seconds of glory have long worn out their welcome.

When I previously said some cops go under cover because they covet the life, Jay Dobyns is the one I was specifically referring to. Alex Caine once told me about his meeting with Jay Dobins when Jay was under cover in Arizona. He met him at a house full of cops, booze and strippers. The cops were talking about things they should not have been talking about in front of civilians. It was just like the Secret Service agents in Colombia. Useless wannabes.

Jay Dobyns insisted that Alex Caine was nothing but a rat. When I heard that I said AYFKM? Who does Jay Dobyns think he is? He's the rat. He's no better than Alex Caine. At least Alex isn't a dirty ass swinger. The Aging Rebel has plenty to say about Jay Dobbins' traveling circus. The Aging Rebel has credibility, Jay Dobyns does not. Jay Dobyns is a fake, a fraud, a f*cking idiot. He is no friend of mine. Not that it matters. Just sayn.

Jay Dobyns is an actor. He pretends to be something he is not. That is what he does. In other words, he's a liar and is full of sh*t. I'll just plug my nose and let that circus pass me by.

Second $100M settlement announced in RCMP sexual harassment case

CBC reported that "Three years after settling a sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit with female officers for $100 million, the RCMP has reached a second settlement — for about another $100 million — for women who worked for the force in non-policing roles. The settlement was announced Monday morning by Klein Lawyers LLP, the same Vancouver law firm that handled the first settlement in 2016. The latest pact is subject to approval by a federal court."

Global is reporting that "In 2016, former Commissioner Bob Paulson announced a settlement had been reached as the result of two sexual harassment class-action lawsuits against the RCMP. He also promised the fist of God will fall on Mounties who perpetuate sexual harassment." Which was absolute bullsh*t because right after he made that ridiculous statement there were new allegations within his own office.

This second lawsuit was a class action. It wasn't just one victim and one offender. It was a climate of unprofessional that permeated the force. Straight from the Friends of Craig Callen right to the office of Bob Paulson. Not to mention his fake fishing trip at Pitt Lake with Craig Callen and Bill Fordy. Much. Although there is no doubt a gag order that goes with the settlement we all know that a female employee of the RCMP was raped by a RCMP officer during the Olympics.

We all complain about the millennial's sense of entitlement. That same problem permeates the RCMP. That is why we need a regional police force in Surrey and why the E Division headquarters in Surrey should not have a bar on site. No one else is allowed to drink and drive. They shouldn't be allowed to either. No Justice, No Peace.

Speaking of RCMP cover ups what ever happened to Mike Webster? He disappeared after he threw Grant under the bus.

Syria Propaganda: The War on Truth

They say the fist casualty of war is the truth. We have certainly seen that repeatedly in Syria. It appears that the Syrian Network for Human Rights is NOT an objective third party. It is a biased outlet funded by the West and staffed by the opposition. Tim Anderson from Hands off Syria claims that the Syrian Network for Human Rights is a NATO jihadist front. Possible.

What do we know? We know that ISIS mysteriously appeared in Syria beheading people to justify US intervention. Then we find out that Israel was supporting ISIS in Syria because they were opposing Assad. We know that under Operation Ajax British and American intervention in Iran created Islamic extremism there. The October Surprise perpetuated it.

We know that rebel forces use civilians as human shields. We know that Germany bombed civilians in London repeatedly. We know that the Americans killed more women and children in Hiroshima and Nagasaki then any other country ever has.

We know that the Syrian Network for Human Rights is not credible. That's all we know.

Neither is the Tony Blair Faith Foundation which is now called the Institute for Global Change.

Chantix: the suicide side effect

In 2008 Web MD reported that "Federal officials warned Friday that a popular antismoking drug may be linked to suicides in some patients. The drug, called Chantix, has been used by more than 5 million patients as a smoking cessation aid, according to manufacturer Pfizer Inc. The drug will now carry new labels warning doctors and consumers of reports of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. FDA officials said they had received nearly 500 reports of suicidal thoughts, behaviors, and completed suicides, 420 of which were in U.S. patients. Thirty-four cases of completed suicide were recorded in the U.S., along with five cases overseas. The reports don't prove that Chantix was the cause of the suicide. But FDA officials say their investigation showed several suicide cases in patients with no history of psychiatric problems."

Someone recently sent me numerous links about people committing suicide on Chantix and it rang a bell. I remember a friend tell me that when he was on it he felt like killing himself so he went off of it. Obviously everyone isn't going to have the same side effect but there are more than enough documented cases to put a warning on the box to make people aware of the concern in case it starts to happen to them. An Australian inquest found that Chantix contributed to a teenagers named Timothy John's suicide.

"In September of 2016, however, the FDA narrowly voted in favor of removing the warning, arguing that the benefits of Chantix outweighed the demerits of its side-effects and that there was no clear evidence of causality between the drug and the side-effects.” Wow.

Removing that warning is criminal culpability. People need to be aware of the possible side effects so they can stop taking the drug if they start to have those adverse side effects.

Obviously the pharmaceutical companies will pay whoever they can to say whatever they want. Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain committed suicide while on Chantix. There's a petition to the FDA to bring back the warning labels but it shouldn't need a petition. The facts show that there is a need for the warning. Removing that warning is completely irresponsible.

RCMP Officer sentenced to10 years for cocaine theft and trafficking

CTV is reporting that "A judge sentenced a former high-ranking RCMP officer to 10 years in prison for stealing and selling $300,000 worth of cocaine Thursday, saying the egregious breach of trust compromised the national police force and resulted in a remarkable fall from grace. Justice James Chipman said 51-year-old retired staff sergeant Craig Robert Burnett's corruption led him to exploit the very law he was sworn to uphold. Rather than acting according to the core values of the RCMP, he behaved dishonestly when he manipulated the system to covertly steal approximately 10 kilograms of cocaine," then gave it to a friend to sell on the street.

Jarrod Bacon's statutory release revoked

CBC is reporting that mama's boy Jarred Pigsh*t Bacon has had his statutory release revoked because he tested positive for cocaine. "In 2012, Bacon was sentenced to 12 years in prison, minus time served, for smuggling 100 kilograms of cocaine. He was supposed to serve nine years before being eligible for statutory release but was released early, in February 2017 due to a clerical error. He landed back in a maximum security prison after breaking the conditions of his release and again received statutory release in June 2018. In December of last year, Bacon was again found to be in violation of his release conditions after testing positive for cocaine. "Before that event, the caseworkers had doubts about your sobriety," said the board decision, adding that "instead of seeking help, you took steps to actively hide your consumption."

This pathetic loser is like unto Jody York - hopeless. Some people never grow up. He is anything but notorious. The Bacon brothers were yuppies from the suburbs who lived with their parents. Nobody in Surrey liked them. Jonathan was a preppy ass b*tch in bed with Larry Amero from the get go. Jamie was a brainless ork. Jarrod was just an angry young man who did drugs. Nobody cares about him. In 2017 he was too afraid to go to a halfway house thinking he's be killed.

Natural justice will take care of this one. He's too much of a heat bag to sell for the club any more. Now he's just another drug user without a job. Where do you think that's going to take him?

Ontario Hells Angel pleads guilty in Nova Scotia drug case

TBM Scandinavia is reporting on an article from the Chronicle Herald which states that "A member of the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle club from Ontario has pleaded guilty to drug-related charges in Nova Scotia. Mark David Heickert, 50, of Orillia pleaded guilty last week in Dartmouth provincial court to three charges: conspiracy to traffic cocaine, conspiracy to possess proceeds of crime and breaching his release conditions by having contact with members of the Hells Angels or affiliated clubs. Heickert and an Eastern Shore man – Paul Francis Monahan of Ostrea Lake - were arrested in November 2017 following a nine-month police investigation that included undercover officers" where two kilos of cocaine were seized.

"Police said Monahan is a hang-around member of the New Brunswick Nomads Hells Angels chapter and Heickert is a full-patch member of the Hells Angels chapter in Oshawa, Ont."

Mark Heickert is a member of the Hells Angels in Oshawa. Hells Angels associate Sean Heickert was found guilty of the November 2007 murder of Bekim Zeneli which set off the Winnipeg gang war. He murdered one of their own guys so the Ontario Hells Angels could take over the Thompson drug trade from the Winnipeg Hells Angels. Sh*t Forever, Forever Sh*t.

Willem Holleeder gets life for five murders

BBC is reporting that "Willem Holleeder, the Netherlands' most notorious gangster, has been found guilty of ordering a series of murders of figures in the world of organised crime. Holleeder, now 61, achieved notoriety in the 1980s for the kidnapping of beer tycoon Freddy Heineken. He then became a big crime boss and has been convicted after a lengthy and expensive trial in Amsterdam. Among his victims was friend and associate Cor van Hout. The judges convicted Holleeder of ordering five murders and one manslaughter and sentenced him to spend the rest of his life in jail. They also found that he had formed a crime gang and ordered cold-blooded killings with jailed associate Dino Soerel and since-murdered criminal Stanley Hillis.'

BBC refers to Willem Holleeder as the Dutch godfather. In 2013 Het Parool reported that "One of the victims that Danny K., Dick V. and Willem Holleeder have extorted according to the judiciary is Theo Huisman, the recently dismissed president of the Amsterdam Hells Angels." The Trio formed the No Surrender crew in Amsterdam.

In 2014 NCR reported that Danny K., Dick V. and Willem Holleeder were charged with threatening and extorting Hells Angel Theo Huisman. I thought Hells Angels never dialed 911? Once again they went running to the cops for protection. Just like here in BC. The year before Dick V beat up Theo Huisman when he was president of the Amsterdam Hells Angels.

SNC-Lavalin opts for judge-only trial in corruption case

CBC is reporting that "Lawyers representing SNC-Lavalin have opted for trial by judge alone in a corruption case that has loomed over the Montreal-based engineering and construction giant. The company was ordered to stand trial last May. It is accused of paying $47.7 million in bribes to public officials in Libya between 2001 and 2011. SNC-Lavalin, its construction division and a subsidiary also face one charge each of fraud and corruption for allegedly defrauding various Libyan organizations of $129.8 million."

SNC-Lavalin is a bad company like unto Lockheed Martin. We really need to stop bailing them out with tax dollars. The Canadian economy will not take a hit if SNC-Lavalin goes down because other companies will rise to take it's place. That's how it works in a free market. Other companies that aren't so riddled with corruption. Corporate Communism has got to go. SNC-Lavalin has a long history of under biding and over charging government contracts then committing fraud with tax dollars only to give the politicians a kickback. This obscenity needs to come to an end.

Chilliwack RCMP seize drugs in Surrey

The Surrey Now Leader is reporting that Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit Drug Section (CRU) searched 3 residences in Surrey and seized 2.4 kilos of crystal met and half a kilo of cocaine." When are the Surrey RCMP going to bust the drug trafficking out of Shakerz and stop providing them police protection? Please advise.

Gordon Wilson's defamation Fraud takes three hits

The Surrey now Leader is reporting that "A B.C. Supreme Court judge has struck three of Gordon Wilson’s five claims for special damages in the former provincial politicians defamation lawsuit against Surrey-Whalley MLA Bruce Ralston, Premier John Horgan, NDP MP Rachel Blaney and Jen Holmwood." This is an offensive fraud of epic proportions.

Gordon Wilson got a sweetheart job advocating for LNG because his wife, Judi Tyabji, wrote a book promoting Christy Clark called Behind the Smile. When John Horgan was elected they changed LNG advocates. Bruce Ralston and John Horgan implied that Gordon Wilson did very little to justify his exuberant salary. That was absolutely true.

One of the statements said he didn't even write a report. Then Dianne Watts pathetic lapdog does some digging and found a report Gordon Wilson had someone write for him. Aha! That's defamation! Not. You guys are complete shysters. Anonymous implied that Christy Clark funneled thousands of tax dollars into that conflicted couple while she was premier. They should be in jail. This frivolous law suit should be thrown out because of the anti SLAPP legislation. Gordon Wilson and Judi Tyabji should be more concerned with finding some self respect.

Gas companies refuse to reveal profits to Price Fixing Inquiry

CBC is reporting that "Hearings for an inquiry into soaring gas prices in B.C. don't kick off for another week, but several major companies selling gas in the province are already refusing to share details about their profit margins. The B.C. Utilities Commission asked more than a dozen companies to disclose their retail margins, which show how much money they make per litre of gasoline pumped from their stations. Shell Canada, Husky Energy, Imperial Oil and Suncor Energy declined the commission's request. In written responses posted online, the companies say those numbers are confidential and commercially sensitive." JAIL THEM.

Bruce Linton fired as co CEO of Canadian pot company Canopy Growth after it acquired Acreage Holdings

CNBC is reporting that Bruce Linton, co-CEO of Canopy Growth, said he was fired from the Canadian pot company he founded in 2013 in an interview with CNBC on Wednesday. Canopy, the world’s largest publicly traded cannabis company by market value, earlier Wednesday announced in a press release that Linton was removed as co-chief executive officer and a member of the board, effective immediately. Mark Zekulin, who had been co-CEO with Linton, becomes the sole CEO while the company searches for a replacement."

The move comes after a 3.4 billion dollar acquisition of a US company who called for a reconfiguration of the board. Having said that this is all pretty much beyond me. I don't invest in legal pot because I personally don't support it. I see it as a dirty business that inhibits youth but recognize that it will continue to flourish and the cop pot entities that are striving to use their contracts to create a monopoly in the industry are in my opinion dirty.

Maybe they want to hire Mark Emery. Unlikely. They just want to use people and cast them aside when they are done with them. It's the nature of the business.

Gag order hides another RCMP sexual harassment settlement

The Chronicle Journal is reporting that "RCMP say a settlement has been reached in a lawsuit that alleged a former spokesman for the force in British Columbia sexually harassed a civilian employee. The lawsuit against former inspector Tim Shields had been scheduled to go to trial on Tuesday but court documents show the parties agreed to dismiss the action without costs in May. RCMP Sgt. Janelle Shoihet says the terms of the settlement are confidential."

Another gag order hides more RCMP sexual harassment. The civil claim alleged a top-down culture of harassment within the force. That is why there was a class action law suit against the RCMP which was also settled out of court. Tim Shields is a bad man.

Post Media News attacks the Toronto Star

The Toronto Star is reporting that "By all rights the federal Liberals ought to be cruising toward a comfortable victory in October. The economy is humming along, especially where most of the voters live - in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia. A million jobs have been created in the past four years and unemployment is at its lowest level (5.4 per cent) since the distant days of 1976." Very true. The article then says Justin Trudeau needs to "reassert his leadership, avoid any more gaffes, and show Canadians he has a clear vision of where he wants to take the country - and the qualities needed to get there." It's all fair comment.

Then the National Post puts out an article not confronting Justin Trudeau but confronting the Toronto Star. That is what's weird. The Toronto Star article is not. Remember the Toronto Star is independent, the National Post is not. The National Post is now owned by Post Media News. When the Main Stream Media attacks an independent media outlet for expressing a valid political opinion one needs to consider the source and question where the Main Stream media is trying to take us. Propaganda is not news. Buyer Beware.

Surrey's South Asian temple leaders push solicitor general to let city replace RCMP

CBC is reporting that "Surrey's South Asian temple leaders are calling on the province to move faster to allow a new municipal police service to replace the RCMP. They believe a new police service would help curb disproportionate violence affecting South Asian community members. The executives of Surrey's six largest Sikh Gurdwaras and the largest Hindu Mandir have sent a joint letter to B.C. Solicitor General Mike Farnworth urging him to approve the city plan to replace the Surrey RCMP." Post Media Propaganda didn't report that because they are biased.

"At the same time, another group is rallying in the opposite direction. Keep the RCMP in Surrey is a group co-ordinated by Ivan Scott, whose son is a Surrey RCMP officer." His son is a RCMP officer. Exactly. Doug McCallum was elected on a promise to get rid of the RCMP in Surrey and the RCMP are still fighting the democratic will of Surrey. It confirms why they need to be replaced. Surrey is the largest city in Canada without it's own police force. Get over it.

Anthony Joshua's shocking defeat to Andy Ruiz

I just heard that Anthony Joshua lost his fight against Andy Ruiz June 1st. I'm shocked. The Guardian is reporting that Andy Ruiz Jr sprang one of the biggest shocks in heavyweight championship history on Saturday night when he spoiled Anthony Joshua’s US debut with a seventh-round technical knockout at Madison Square Garden.

"The unheralded 29-year-old from southern California, a replacement opponent dialled in on five weeks’ notice who went off as a 11-1 underdog, came off the floor in the third round to drop Joshua twice before the end of the frame, then sent the undefeated champion crashing to the canvas for a third and fourth time in the seventh round before referee Mike Griffin put a stop to the proceedings at the 1:27 mark."

"This was no fluke. No lucky one-punch knockout that can be explained away by a silver-tongued promoter. Joshua was outboxed, out-toughed and beaten up on a night that turned boxing’s bellwether weight class on its ear."

"The fight is considered one of the biggest upsets in boxing history, drawing comparisons to Mike Tyson vs. Buster Douglas in 1990 and Lennox Lewis vs. Hasim Rahman in 2001. Ruiz also made history as the first ever Mexican world heavyweight champion." A rematch is in the cards.

Andy Ruiz came back hard and strong after getting knocked down in the third round. They call him the Mexican Rocky. Andy Ruiz trained with Freddie Roach for seven years.

Israel Is Blamed for Deadly Missile Strikes in Syria

The New York Times is reporting that "Israeli warplanes struck several military sites in Syria overnight and killed several fighters and civilians, Syrian state media reported on Monday, in what appeared to be a stepping up of Israel’s long-running, partly covert campaign to thwart Iranian military entrenchment in Syria and stop weapon transfers to Lebanon."

The Times of Israel is reporting that "A private Israeli intelligence firm on Monday identified one of the sites in Syria targeted in an alleged Israeli airstrike earlier in the day as a hangar likely storing advanced weaponry or other military equipment." Things that make ya go hmmm....

We all know that Israel was supporting ISIS in Syria to help overthrow Assad. So was the CIA. The CIA created ISIS. Although the claim that Syria was trying to send arms to Lebanon is possible it is highly unlikely. I hesitate commenting on this fraud as I completely support Israel's right to exist. I just emphasize that it is a right to coexist.

Meanwhile back on the ranch, Sky News is reporting that "A suspected Russian-made missile has landed in Northern Cyprus after exploding in the air above a series of villages, according to officials. It is thought the missile may be part of an air defence system fired from Syria in response to an air attack by Israel. Israeli airstrikes were taking place against targets in Syria around 120 miles (200km) away at the time of the blast."

Hong Kong protesters storm government building over China extradition bill

CNN is reporting that "Hundreds of protesters in Hong Kong swarmed into the legislature's main building Monday night, tearing down portraits of legislative leaders and spray-painting pro-democracy slogans on the walls of the main chamber. The sharp escalation in tactics came on the anniversary of the former British colony's return to China, a city holiday, and reflected mounting frustration with Hong Kong's leader for not responding to protesters' demands after several weeks of demonstrations."

The Guardian is posting live updates as China's Communism crushes another protest umbrella protest. We remember the Tiananmen square massacre. That really did happen. After the famous stand off Communist China used live ammunition on protesters and crushed the cry for democracy. Then they censored that true information from the internet within mainland China and pretended it never happened at all. Buyer Beware.

China is not an ally. Executing political prisoners for organ harvesting is not a good thing. Euronews has posted actual interviews of the Hong Kong protesters concerns. China is breaking the agreement it signed with England when Hong Kong was handed over to them in 1997.

Reports are coning in from Hong Kong claiming that the Chinese police are going in under cover as agent provocateurs starting violence to rationalize a violent crackdown.

Judicial Injustice: A Father's Story

Speaking of judicial injustice, I met a father today named Chris Marshall who had quite a story to tell. His story is about a father trying to get access to his child during a divorce and how he was completely screwed over by the Canadian judicial system. It reminds me of the John Carten story. I'm not a lawyer, I'm an advocate. Consequently I'm a hopeless romantic.

I always walk around with an ace up my sleeve and play it whenever my back is up against the wall in court. It's called Natural Justice. The intent of the law speaks to natural justice. That's why it's called the judicial system. It's *supposed* to uphold justice. Yet it rarely does. That's why I'm a dreamer. I play that card saying the court is supposed to uphold justice and this is not just.

Have a look at what Chris Marshall has to say. He has his own website called A Father's Story.

No Justice, No Peace. Know Justice, Know Peace.

Alabama police shot a teen dead, but his friend got 30 years for the murder

The Guardian is reporting that "Unlike in the vast majority of fatal shootings by police officers, someone is going to prison for the 2015 death of 16-year-old A’Donte Washington in Alabama. It just isn’t the police officer who shot him."

"Lakeith Smith was sentenced last week to 30 years for A’Donte’s murder, even though no one disputes it was an officer’s bullet that killed him. Smith is not even accused of having possessed a weapon. Under the state’s accomplice law, co-defendants can be guilty of murder if a death occurs when they are in the midst of committing a felony. Smith was one of five teens who were allegedly committing a burglary when responding officers opened fire, killing A’Donte. Smith, now 18, was also sentenced to another 35 years for crimes related to the the burglary, for a total of 65 years." OK now that it totally messed up. Give your head a shake.

The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world.

Donald Trump met Kim Jong Un in the Demilitarized Zone

The Guardian is reporting that "Donald Trump has invited Kim Jong-un to the US after he became the first sitting US president to enter North Korea. The apparently impromptu meeting came about after Trump tweeted an invitation to Kim on Saturday from the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan. After shaking hands with Kim in the demilitarised zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas and walking with him over the border.” Say what you want about either leader but this is a step in the right direction. Hats off to Moon Jae-in.
