The Guardian is reporting that "New South Wales police have hailed one of the “easiest” drug busts in history after a driver allegedly crashed a van carrying $200m worth of the drug ice into parked cop cars outside a station in Sydney’s north-west. The 26-year-old man, from Berala, was facing three charges including drug trafficking and negligent driving, NSW police said. The crash happened on Monday at 10.30am outside Eastwood police station and officers said the Toyota HiAce did not stop. Officers heard a loud bang and checked video surveillance.
One of the police vehicles – a Holden Commodore – was written off while the other was slightly damaged. Police caught up with the man in the nearby suburb of Ryde, searched the van and seized 273kg of methylamphetamine, known as ice, which has an estimated potential street value of more than $200m." Sounds like the driver was using some of the product.
The Naniamo News is reporting that "Nearly beating a man to death and having close to $1 million in hard drugs earned a prolific Nanaimo criminal nine years behind bars. Colin Lamontagne was sentenced at the Supreme Court of BC in Nanaimo on Friday, July 19 for the November 2016 incident. He previously pleaded guilty to tying up and beating a drug addict over unpaid debt. A taser was used on the man in a Ninth St. home."
We remember Colin. He certainly isn't notorious so I wish the media would stop over using that term. He was with the Veterans MC but they kicked him out after his first drug charge. He has had several charges since then.
As to the most recent drug charge Colin was found with a significant amount of drugs packaged for sale, including heroin containing fentanyl and carfentanil as well as two 20 litre buckets of the date-rape drug GHB. That spells sh*tbag all on it's own but there's more. "Lamontagne was convicted in 2018 to four years in prison for the 2015 manslaughter of a friend in Victoria. When his friend suffered a severe drug-induced reaction, Lamontagne wrapped him up, beat him and tried to subdue him with a headlock, rather than call for medical help."
The guy needs to spend some time with Dr Phil so he does.

Israel 24 News is reporting that "Two Israelis shot dead in Mexico City were involved in money laundering and had links to local mafias, Mexico's government said on Friday." BBC is reporting that "Israel's embassy in Mexico said the men had criminal records in both Israel and Mexico, while Israeli local media has claimed Sutchi was well-known within Israel's criminal underworld."
You guessed it. News Now Vegas and the Borderland Beat are both referring to Sutchi as an ex Mossad agent. No big surprise there. Mossad, the CIA and drug trafficking. They all go together.
I just saw the movie Yesterday with Himesh Patel, Lily James and Ed Sheeran. It was awesome. It's light, positive and meaningful. Makes one reflect on what success means and what's really important in life. When does Hollywood ever do that? Well done.

Vancouver is Awesome is reporting that "Once Upon a Time actor Gabe Khouth has been identified as the victim of a fatal motorcycle crash in Port Moody Tuesday afternoon. In a video message, Khouth’s brother Sam Vincent confirmed the death and encouraged fans of the 46-year-old actor to leave flowers and messages at the southwest corner of Queens and St. Johns streets." The Tri city News is reporting that "The Port Moody memorial pays tribute to Khouth’s love for motorcycles. Several media reports said Khouth suffered a heart attack while riding his motorcycle. However, the Port Moody Police Department told The Tri-City News that they could not confirm the cause of death until the coroner service had completed its investigation."
The New York Times is reporting that " Lines of riot police officers in body armor and helmets blocked the streets of central Moscow on Saturday, arresting more than 1,000 demonstrators - chasing some of them down alleys - to blunt a protest over the fairness of coming city elections."
“We love Russia! They love money!” protesters chanted, a reference to widespread anger over government corruption. Others sat in the streets, awaiting arrest and reading copies of the Constitution. The spark for Saturday’s protest was a decision by election authorities to bar several opposition candidates from running for Moscow’s City Council, asserting that they had falsified signatures on petitions to run — a charge the candidates denied."
"An independent monitoring group said 1,067 people were arrested near City Hall, the intended site of the rally, although many never made it there. As in past protests, the authorities began making arrests blocks away so a large crowd could not form."
"Aleksei A. Navalny, the opposition leader who had called the demonstration, was arrested on Wednesday and sentenced to 30 days in jail. Other prominent opposition politicians — including Ilya V. Yashin, Dmitry G. Gudkov and Ivan Y. Zhdanov — were also rounded up before the event and released only late in the evening."
"A post on the Facebook page of Mr. Yashin, a street activist and one of the politicians who was barred from running, said 10 masked police officers had removed him from his apartment in Moscow overnight before the Saturday demonstration." This has happened before.
Although Russia is no longer Communist, it doesn't have a very good reputation for fair elections. In 2015, Boris Nemtsov, the opposition leader to Putin was shot dead.
This brings us back to the movie the November Man with Pierce Brosnan which was a fictional movie based on real life events. The CIA used false flag attacks in Chechnya to help Putin get elected. Trump wasn't guilty of Russian collusion, Hillary Clinton was. She sold them weapons grade uranium for missiles through a Canadian shell company.
Last week the Independent reported that "Thousands of people took to the streets in Moscow over the weekend in what opposition politicians and local media are calling the ‘largest demonstration in recent years’ in Russia. Independent NGO White Counter says some 22,500 people rallied yesterday to protest against the exclusion of dozens of independent candidates from the city council elections. “I haven’t been to such a huge rally since 2012,” tweeted Alexei Navalny, the leader of the opposition, after he attended the protest."
Russian opposition leader ill after exposure to 'undefined chemical'
Update: The Guardian is reporting that "Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny has been hospitalised, with symptoms that one of his doctors said appeared to be “the result of harmful effects of undefined chemical substances”. Navalny was taken to hospital on Sunday morning from jail, where he was serving a 30-day sentence after being arrested last week for calling people to attend an anti-government protest."
England has a new Prime Minister. Boris Johnson has replaced Teresa May. Boris has risen to fame through his Brexit party. Teresa May was a staunch supporter of Brexit. Her resignation does not seem to reflect concerns with her leadership but concerns within her party who where trying to stonewall the process. Boris has been compared to England's Donald Trump. Politics aside they could both use a comb and haircut.
Rex Murphy's thought provoking video on Donald Trump asked What have we learned? Two things in his synopsis strike me. The first is the rightful declaration that the mob's obsession with the Kardashians, Jerry Springer and Hells Kitchen is weird. I concur. In the words of the Black Eyed Peas "What's wrong with the world, mama. People livin' like they ain't got no mamas. I think the whole world's addicted to the drama. Only attracted to the things that'll bring you trauma."
The rise of Boris Johnson and Donald Trump represents the public's mistrust of the status quo. It represents a legacy of broken promises within both parties. In the US, the Democrats obsession with promoting Hilary's evil has failed to produce a positive alternative to Trump making his reelection almost a given. Since presidents can only run two terms in the US, the next thing we need to ask is what are we going to do to drain the swamp in the third term?
I'm a nobody. I'm just one tin soldier who records his dissent before he rides away and let's natural justice take it's course. The State of the Mob concerns me so it does. Just say'n.

CBC is reporting that "Two Sunwing employees accused of importing cocaine through Toronto's Pearson airport are among 11 people facing dozens of drug-trafficking charges after an undercover operation led by Kitchener RCMP and involving law enforcement in other parts of southern Ontario. RCMP said Friday the following drugs were seized as part of Project OWoodcraft: 10 kg of fentanyl, 1.3 kg of heroin, 1 kg of meth, 30 kg of marijuana, Smaller amounts of carfentanil and cocaine.
The RCMP release said the two Sunwing Airlines employees linked to the drug ring, which was "centred at" Pearson, are charged with attempting to import cocaine and trafficking cocaine. Police also thanked Sunwing for helping them with the probe. The investigation involved undercover officers from the RCMP's Kitchener office purchasing approximately nine kilograms of fentanyl as well as several kilograms of other drugs over the course of several transactions.
So if the RCMP disrupt drug trafficking in Kitchener, Ontario, why don't they do it in Surrey, BC?
CHCH is reporting that "A Hamilton man and Burlington woman are facing multiple charges after police seized guns, cash and more than $1 million in drugs. Earlier this summer, police launched an investigation into alleged drug trafficking by a Hamilton man."
"Officers arrested 46-year-old after Vincent Poole after his vehicle was pulled over by police on Wednesday afternoon. Investigators say he was in possession of roughly 10 kilograms of cocaine with a street value of $1 million."
"The next day police executed a search warrant at a home they say Poole attended regularly near Magnolia Dr. and Mohawk Rd. West. on Hamilton Mountain. Police say they found multiple lawfully owned firearms in the home that were kept in an unsafe manner including two loaded guns next to the resident’s bed. Officers seized cocaine, ammunition, oxycodone, and about $50,000 in proceeds of crime."
I had lunch at the Sasquatch Inn yesterday at Harrison Hills and noticed they're having a show and shine there this Sunday July 28th from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM. The locals were pretty excited. The whole parking lot is licensed. Last year was pretty big.

One of the cameramen posted a youtube video of my speech at the Falun Dafa rally outside the Vancouver Arts Gallery before the parade July 20th. This is important. This is why Hong Kong is protesting. They don't want their political prisoners extradited to China and be executed to order for organ harvesting. We need to talk about this atrocity.
At 6:47 in the video is a recording of Suki's speech from the South Asian Press in Surrey.
The Richmond News is reporting that "Members from Richmond RCMP, along with their colleagues throughout Canada, have voted to unionize. It is still unknown, however, how much more it will cost the City of Richmond once a collective agreement is hammered out." Wow.
"Close to 15,000 National Police Federation (NPF) members took part in a cross-country certification vote conducted by the Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board (FPSLREB). With a 97 per cent majority vote, the NPF is now able to begin collective bargaining with the federal government, and on July 15 took the first steps in the process by serving the Treasury Board with a notice to bargain."
97%?! I've never heard of a certification vote that high before. That says something. It speaks to the bullying and sexual harassment. They say the company gets the union is deserves.

Sportsnet is reporting that "Cole (The Cole Train) Smith, a native of Squamish, B.C., will face American bantamweight Miles (Chapo) Johns on a UFC televised card Sept. 14 in Vancouver. The main event at Rogers Arena pits Donald (Cowboy) Cerrone, ranked fourth among UFC lightweight contenders, against No. 5 Justin Gaethje."
A light weight and a bantamweight doesn't sound too exciting but it's nice to see the UFC make it to Vancouver. Let's hope Dana White can find some class and pull it out of the gutter without those other low lifes turning it into a WWF sh*t show behind the scenes.

CBC is reporting that "RCMP say two men previously reported missing, Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky, are suspects in the homicides of a young couple gunned down in Northern B.C., as well as the suspicious death of a man found dead near McLeod and Schmegelsky's burnt-out truck last week." That makes more sense. However, the whole case is fishy a f*ck.
This whole case gets weirder by the minute.
Update: Post Media Propaganda is reporting that "The bodies of two B.C. homicide suspects have been found following a police hunt that lasted three weeks and stretched across four provinces. Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, and Kam McLeod, 19, were found dead in dense brush near the community of Gillam, Manitoba RCMP announced at a news conference on Wednesday. The bodies were found around 10 a.m. Wednesday, said RCMP Asst. Commissioner Jane MacLatchy. An autopsy has been scheduled to take place in Winnipeg to confirm the identities and cause of death, though police believe the bodies are those of Schmegelsky and McLeod."
That is fishy as f*ck.
Nobody likes a bully. Especially a bully who plays the victim. There's a predator out there who is giving the trans movement a bad name. No one likes to see anyone abused. If a transgender person is being bullied, then we will oppose that. Likewise, if a transgender person is bullying someone else, we will oppose that as well.
Jonathan Yaniv who now goes by the name Jesse is a transgender bully abusing and harassing women. The Post Millennial is reporting that "The truth about Jessica Yaniv is beginning to emerge." Indeed it is. "In 2018, Yaniv filed 16 human rights complaints with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal, charging various waxing and esthetic salon workers with transphobic discrimination for declining to provide waxing and other beautification services to her male genitals. Each of these salons or salon workers had specifically indicated they only provided intimate area services to female clients."
Jonathanyaniv.org is reporting that "Wearing the guise of a marginalized person, Jonathan has sued 16 different beauticians for refusing to wax his penis and testicles. Since then, he has been uncovered by dozens of women as being a sex pest interested in naïve, young, developing girls." Likewise, Womenarehuman.com is reporting that "A biologically male person who identifies as a woman was recently called out by a previous supporter and fellow member of the transgender community for allegedly sexually targeting adolescent girls."
There's more. This next one I'm going to present as a hypothetical situation. What if I found out that someone I used to work with was using the transgender movement to abuse young girls? What if I knew someone was once fired for sexual harassment. I remember the event. Somewhere I used to work, a creepy guy was fired for sexually harassing a cute young girl. She was in a relationship and he would not take no for an answer. I remember that.
What if I found out that same person pretended to be transgender and milked that movement to prey on more young women? Would it not be my duty and moral obligation to warn others of that sexual predator who is exploiting the transgender movement for their own misguided purposes?
Truth will prevail so it will.
Rex Murphy: B.C. groin waxing case is a mockery of human rights

Last night the name Cynthia Garcia came to mind. She was a mother who was brutally murdered by the Hells Angels and dumped in the desert. The murderers claimed she trashed talked the club and I don't see that as believable. She probably just said no to the train and that was the only way she disrespected them or should I say, him. They beat her down, stomped on her head with their boots, threw her in the truck of a car, took her to the desert in Arizona and stabbed her nearly 30 times. They almost cut off her head. Violence against women rationalized by a lie.
The Aging Rebel reported that "Four patched Angels and two prospects were in the clubhouse around the time Garcia was beaten. The prospects were named Dennis Gilliard and David LeMoine. The four patch holders were Augustiniak, Paul Eischeid, Richard Hyder and Michael Christopher 'Mesa Mike' Kramer."
"According to multiple sources, the architect of the murder was Kramer. Kramer was the most senior club member there and he was intoxicated on methamphetamine at the time. Kramer punched Garcia and knocked her off a bar stool for “mouthing off.” He kicked the woman and ordered Augustiniak, Eischeid and Hyder to join in the assault. Kramer ordered the other Angels to throw Garcia in the trunk of his car. Kramer stabbed and slashed Garcia in the desert near Usery Pass south of Mesa."
"By Kramer’s account, the nearly decapitated woman somehow managed to grasp his pant leg as she died. And, he was moved to treachery by that poignant gesture. Less than a month later Kramer became a paid ATF informant."
"Kramer killed Hyder in a traffic accident the following Spring. He was eventually sentenced to five years probation for killing Garcia. He is now enrolled in the U.S. Marshalls’ Witness Relocation Program. Since the Garcia murder, Kramer has been paid slightly more than $415,000 by the federal government." Eischeid was a prospect at the time. He wasn't in charge.
It doesn't stop there. I am told that the Hells Angels run a prostitution site at Humaniplex.com. As soon as you visit that site, they have your ip number. As soon as you click enter, they get all kinds of stuff on your computer. I have reason to believe that site is run by Michael Kramer for the ATF not the Hells Angels. Buyer Beware. The ATF have become a Den of Thieves.

If you were having Starbucks in Vancouver today and saw a parade with a marching band go by and was wondering what it was about, today is the 20th anniversary of the persecution of the Falun Gong or Falun Dafa in Communist China. It was nice to see Suki from the South Asian Press in Surrey there. New Tang Dynasty, Epoch Times and Ming Pao News were also there. Independent news outlet we can rely on. Post Media News was not present.
It is astounding how much influence the Communist Party of China has over our media here. They run the Confucius Institute which has absolutely nothing to do with promoting the virtues of Confucius. Instead they are killing traditional Chinese cultural heritage through their cultural genocide. This is why Hong Kong needs to be worried. Executing political prisoners to order for organ harvesting is big business. We need to speak out against it.
Candlelight Illuminates the Memory of Lives Lost During 20-Year Persecution in China
"NEW YORK—Hundreds of candles in the shape of lotus flowers illuminated the evening sky in New York as a group of meditators attired in yellow shirts sat silently in front of the Chinese consulate, their round yellow sitting mats neatly aligned in long rows along the riverside."
US Lawmakers Call for End to 20 Year Long Persecution of Falun Gong
"WASHINGTON—Despite the stuffy summer humidity, about 2,000 people donning yellow shirts congregated at Capitol Hill on July 18 to call for an end to the persecution of the spiritual practice Falun Gong in China. July 20 marks 20 years since the Chinese communist regime launched its sweeping campaign to eradicate Falun Gong, an ancient Chinese meditation practice."
Germany Condemns Chinese Regime’s Suppression of Falun Gong on 20th Anniversary
Dennis Watson speaking at the Falun Gong rally in Vancouver.
I want to pause and examine the character of God. The scriptures say that God is a God of truth and cannot lie. Compared to Satan who is the father of all lies and is a false accuser. Kinda like a troll we all know who is in bed with the PoPo after shooting a woman in the back.
We're also told he who knoweth not love knoweth not God for God is love. Yet love can be manifest in different ways. Giving alcoholics alcohol is not love. Giving drug addicts drugs is not love. When Clay Roueche helped one of his guys overcome a crack cocaine addiction, he showed love for him. Indeed actions speak louder than words.
Joseph Smith was once criticized for not being very Christlike. He liked to wrestle, was bold and a little rough around the edges. He explained and said "Some of the company thought I was not a very meek Prophet; so I told them....I will personify Jesus...to illustrate the principle, & cried out with a loud voice, Woe unto you, ye doctors....ye lawyers...ye scribes, Pharisees, & hypocrites!."
When people talk about being Christlike they usually mean kind, gentle and forgiving. Those are indeed all qualities of Christ. Yet he was more than that. Everything has it's time and place. After all, there is a time for war and a time for peace. A time to fight and a time to forgive.
Christ confronted the religious leaders at the time and said they were liars, hypocrites and extortionists. He referred to them as children of the devil. Some say if Christ came today and taught the same things he taught back then, Christians would crucify him all over again.
We also have to remember that Christ cleansed the temple. Before he physically drove the money changers out of the temple he made a scourge of small cords. He braided a whip. After physically throwing them out he said my Father's house is a house of prayer and you have made it a den of thieves. Andrew Lloyd Webber reenacted the event in Jesus Christ Superstar.
So indeed everything has it's time and place. There is a time to fight and a time to forgive. A time for war and a time for peace. In our day, the ATF is supposed to be a house of law and order yet they have made it a den of thieves. Likewise in BC the Surrey RCMP and the BC Gang Task force are supposed to arrest Hells Angels associates that sell drugs. Instead they provide them police protection against their rivals. It is supposed to be a house of law and order yet they have made it a den of thieves. Don't think this abomination doesn't go by unnoticed. Our day will come.

This is hilarious. Post Media Trash is reporting that "Concerns about policing, public safety and community involvement in Surrey have prompted a third councillor to quit the city’s governing coalition on council and sit as an independent. Jack Hundial broke the news on Thursday, which came as no surprise to his fellow council members. Hundial, a retired RCMP officer, has been openly critical of the city’s proposed plan to transition from being policed by the RCMP to starting its own municipal force. But the mayor’s decision this week to dissolve Surrey’s public safety committee in favour of a policing transition committee was the final straw."
Lets take a look at the facts because they speak for themselves. CBC is reporting that "Council drama aside, Doug McCallum's reputation rests on outcome of 2 big campaign promises."
What were those two campaign promises? Sky Train over LRT and forming a municipal police force. Doug McCallum was very clear on those two promises and he was elected on that basis.
Jack Hundial jumped onto McCallum's bandwagon at the last minute. I didn't endorse him because he was former RCMP. I thought it was a bit weird bringing in someone from the RCMP to get rid of the RCMP and form a municipal police force. So now Jack Hundial has left the Safe Surrey Coalition that got him elected because he has broken his election promise. He was elected on a promise to get rid of the RCMP in Surrey and now he has changed his mind. Doug McCallum is keeping his election promise. Jack Hundial is not. That's all there is to it.
Jack Hundial is Indo Canadian. Surrey's South Asian temple leaders are pushing the solicitor general to let the city replace the RCMP. Jack Hundial is betraying the Indo Canadian community in Surrey. That's all there is to it. Let's remember what happened to Barinder Rasode when she was determined to railroad the mega casino in South Surrey that the South Asian temple leaders were so adamantly opposed to. She was not reelected. Good bye Jack Hundial. It was nice knowing ya. Not. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

The Ottawa Citizen is reporting that "Police say they seized suspected opioids along with cannabis products and Hells Angels paraphernalia in a pair of raids in and around Kemptville Wednesday." Ontario arrests Hells Angels associates who deal drugs. BC does not.
One of the seized items in the Ontario raid was Hells Angels support paraphernalia that said Harley Guindon 2015. In 2015 the Northumberland News reported that "Three Oshawa men and Peterborough County man face robbery charges in Cramahe home invasion. Harley Guindon, 29, from Oshawa, was charged with robbery, personating peace officer, careless use of firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of dangerous weapons, forcible confinement and three assault with a weapon charges. Brian McMinn, 32, from Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Township, Ishacc Douglas, 32, from Oshawa, and Travis Bell, 23 from Oshawa, are charged with robbery."
Harley Guindon ran a clothing store. Tragically his niece was murdered in 2017.
Harley Guindon had drug charges stayed in September 2015.
CTV is reporting that "York Regional Police say they have arrested 15 people and seized $35 million worth of homes, sports cars and cash in a major trans-Atlantic probe targeting the most prominent wing of ‘Ndrangheta Mafia clan in Canada. Responding to spike in shootings, arsons in Vaughan and the surrounding area in 2017, police started “Project Sindicato,” targeting a group accused of operating illegal backroom gambling dens in various cafes. It resulted in what is believed to be the largest Mafia bust in Ontario’s history."
No drugs were seized. Police busted a couple of illegal gambling operations and seized a whole lot of money, cars and property. Once again the police are profiting from organized crime. Tell me again, which ones are the criminals? These days it's hard to tell the difference.
Fighting crime or raising revenue?

Sadly Dianne Watt's pathetic lapdog is still pimping the Vancouver gas fraud. That guy really need to get a life or at least a moral conscience. It is not John Horgan's fault Jason Kenny is guilty of price fixing and extortion. Anyone with a brain can see that. Removing the provincial gas tax will not lower the price of gas it will put that revenue straight into the oil company's pocket.
When the price of oil dropped and the price of gas in Vancouver jumped to $1.50 a litre, CBC mentioned Price fixing. When Jason Kenny was elected it jumped to $1.70 a litre. Then he ran full page ads in the local corporate tabloid extorting us to build his tar sands pipeline that Chicago and Detroit stopped taking because of the petroleum coke byproduct.
As soon as the price fixing inquiry started the price mysteriously dropped again but since the oil companies are in contempt by refusing to submit evidence the price of gas keeps bouncing up and down like a pinball machine daily. None of these price jumps are warranted. Price fixing is the only reason. Price fixing is illegal. That means John Horgan needs to take the next step and start filing criminal charges. He also needs to file a civil action in the courts for costs and damages.
Meanwhile, Mike Smyth needs to embark on an expedition. He needs to do some serious soul searching and scour that dark absic for a spark, a glimmer of light. He needs to find that moral compass he was born with but starved to death with his dishonest greed.
John Volken shared a First Nations parable of the two wolves. The grandfather said there are two wolves inside me. One is evil and vengeful, the other is kind and good. Both are fighting for superiority. The grandson then asked which one is winning? The grandfather replied, the one I'm feeding. Mike Smyth killed his moral compass because he fed it with corporate lies.
Price fixing in the oil and gas industry IS organized crime. If BC approved another pipeline for tar sands bitumen, there would be NO guarantee prices would drop because they are not regulated. Greed has no limits and corporate greed is unbridled. BC needs safeguards in place to prevent unwaranted spikes in the price of gas. The taxpayers own the pipeline now.
These next two posts are going to be more on right and wrong. I have a friend who had his parole revoked recently for totally fabricated reasons and I am absolutely astounded at how wrong this is and how there is virtually no accountability whatsoever. It diminishes us as Canadians.
I'm all for confronting organized crime but I'm also all for fresh starts. The prison system should be about rehabilitation. If someone gets out of prison and beats the odds by getting a job and goes to work every day we should applaud them not screw them over.
This isn't the first case that's come to my attention and it needs to be addressed.

This morning I was riding in to work along the freeway before sunrise and a line of an old Tom Petty song came to mind: I'm Free... Freefallin'. One of the two requirements to become a Freemason is to believe in God and to have been born a free man. I never really understood why the second rule is there but I qualified as did my father's father before me.
I was born a free man and God willing, I will die one. Thomas Paine is known for having said Gentlemen may cry peace peace but there is no peace. The war is already begun. He was referring to the American revolution. He was basically saying it's too late. The red coats are coming. Most people want peace but even the Dalai Lama understands that peace at any price is no peace at all. Communist China wants to pick the next Dalai Lama. Yeah I don't think so.
Next China is going to want to pick the next Pope or the next president of the United States. That's not how it works. How about we pick the next president of China? Better yet, how about Hong Kong chooses their own ruler? That's how it works in a real democracy.
It's rather amusing that Blaze used one of his old profiles to make a comment on the Jay Dobyn's post. It's actually hilarious. Jay Dobyns is a POS and Blaze is a compulsive liar. The two of them making a movie together would be something the world could laugh at for years to come. It'd be a real Laurel and Hardy that's for sure. After all, Hollywood is fake as f*ck.
I'm not hating. I don't have to. Our actions speak for themselves. I'm just a trail guide. When people get lost I simply point the way. I'm like you don't want to go down that road and I'll tell you why. It leads to a place you don't want to be. You're better off taking that other road instead.
Martin Luther King taught that that noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good. If we condone evil then we become evil. Jay Dobyns is evil. I will not condone anything he touches. Blaze is just an idiot. He has to live with that fact forever.

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. LiveKabaddi.com post live videos of Kabaddi tournaments. .
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.

The Montreal Gazette is reporting that Quebec's biker war started 25 years ago today. Let's remember that Mom Boucher had paid members of the Rock Machine to murder some of his own political rivals within the Hells Angels. No L&R there. Let's not forget that.

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.
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.
