US Hedge funds squeeze Pacific Press

We are starting to see the adverse effects of media mergers and foreign ownership. The Surrey Now is confirming reports in the local media that the Pacific Press printer in Surrey closed down today and it's serves will be contracted out. Decreased advertizing revenue and foreign ownership is listed are the reason for the closure.

The problem appears to be the fact that Pacific Press is owned by a US Hedge fund. If that is not a recipe for disaster, I don't know what is. Back in 2013 the Tyee reported that US Hedge Funds were squeezing the profit out of Post Media. Hedge funds are a huge scam dripping in fraud that circumvent regulators. They are bad business.

Natural gas from cow manure

On a more positive note, the local news is reporting that dairy farms in BC are taking their cow manure and combining it with organic waste to create natural gas. I kid you not. It's a bit more expensive to produce but is a completely clean and sustainable means of disposing of cow manure which otherwise creates a problem with water contamination. It's also better than fracking with contaminated water.

The Vancouver Province is reporting that Chris Bush is man behind Catalyst Power and B.C.’s first anaerobic digester, which takes cow manure and turns it into biomethane, a product similar to natural gas that is fed directly into a Fortis pipeline in Abbotsford. Well done.

Inversion from sea to sky

Most blog readers recall this is the time of year I usually throw in lots of pictures snowshoeing in the mountains to break things up a bit and take our minds off the toxic negativity of the materialistic gang war associated with the sale of crack cocaine and other harmful drugs. Selling fentanyl is without question pedaling poison.

Everyone needs a passion. Hiking and snowshoeing in the mountains is mine. It is where I gather my thoughts and put things in perspective as I enjoy some of the wonderful things this world has to offer that you simply cannot find in a crack pipe or a material possession.

Sadly, this season on the local mountains has been pretty much a waste of time. A foot of snow at the base and two feet at the summit. Normally we have at least a ten foot base that lasts well into spring. It's hard to be convinced it's a sign of global warming since the interior and the east coast are getting nailed with snow. Looks just like another El Nino. I should have taken a trip out to Big White or Lake Louise. Big White has an awesome ice climbing wall and the ice carving at Lake Louise is magnificent. I went there last year.

Yesterday I broke out the crampons and made it up to third peak on Seymour. Half way up Mystery Peak the trail was bare. We're talking dirt. It's like April on the local mountains right now. There was some inversion happening again when the fog or low clouds hug the surface and you can see above them in the mountains like you're flying over them in a plane. In the distance you can see the clouds over the ocean between Vancouver and Vancouver Island with the mountains of Vancouver Island on the horizon. I could see the fog moving in from Lions Gate bridge so I drove over to the look out on Cypress to get a picture of the sunset.

It was nice seeing the inversion from high up top Seymour third peak then seeing it from just above at the look out on Cypress. Then I went to Whitecliff to see what it looked like from there. It's hard to tell in the picture but you're pretty much face to face with the inversion. All you could see was a layer of clouds on the horizon.

From the city it just looked like fog but if you get out of the city the perspective changes dramatically. I'm sure there's a metaphor in there somewhere. Sometimes we have to get out of the city to see the good and to see what's really important in life. Cheers.

Silk Road Trial under way

Ars Technica is reporting that the silk road trial has begun. Silk road was that under ground web site that sold drugs in bitcoms. The webmaster was being blackmailed and allegedly hired the Whiterock Hells Angels to commit multiple murders. The Hells Angels claimed that although they did collect money for the murders no murders were actually committed. Other than Craig Widdifield's murder in Morgan Crossing of course. Turns out the guy that was blackmailing the webmaster now claims he was acting as a police agent.

The new article states RealLucyDrop said Friendly Chemist had a debt with the Hells Angels and that is why he was blackmailing the webmaster of silk road - DPR. Later, a user named "redandwhite" got in touch with DPR, explaining that his group was the one owed money. "We hold him [FriendlyChemist] and him only responsible for the missing product/money." Redandwhite discussed doing business on the silk road website and said "We have a majority hold over most of the movement of products in Western Canada (one of the main drug ports to North America).

So if Friendly Chemist was a police agent it's quite possible Redandwhite was too. That will no doubt come out later in the trial. If the police in Canada were working with the Hells Angels to blackmail the Silk road webmaster that puts them in a conflict of interest in the Randy and Trevor Jones indictment where US authorities are tying to bust the Whiterock Hells Angels for a huge cross border drug trafficking ring allegedly operated out of TBarz now known as Shakerz. It will be very interesting to see how this story plays out. Either way it once again puts into question the integrity of the "intelligence" community.

The murder of Kevin David Sanders

This is a cold case in more ways than one. Kevin David Sanders went missing from Edmonton, Alberta in November 1999. He was found dead in the North Sask River wrapped in a tarp April 2000. His fingers had been cut off presumably to make it difficult to identify the body. He was last seen at the Clairview Pub, which later became the Chrome Lounge and was been temporary shut down after two shootings. The Toronto Sun reported that in 2007, two men were stabbed during a fight at the bar.

I find it very strange that this case is nowhere to be found on the Internet. There have been many cases of young men last seen at a pub in Kelowna or elsewhere in BC then all of a sudden end up dead and sometimes dismembered. It remains to be a huge concern. If anyone has any information on this case please contact me directly. Surely the people that are afraid to talk said something to someone before they left town and explained why they were afraid for their life. This was a good man. He's not the only one. We can't let it slide by unnoticed.

Russian bombers fly over English Channel

MSN News is reporting that two Russian bombers flew over the English Channel, forcing civilian aircraft to be diverted. British Typhoon fighter jets were scrambled on Wednesday when two Russian TU-95 'Bear' long-range bombers flew close to UK airspace. ISIS does not concern me but this does. It represents a war game yet war is not a game.

Russia does the same thing to Canada over the arctic to see what we will do. That is not a game, it is an act of war. This is why Canada needs an Iron Dome like Israel has to fire missiles at bombers entering our air space. This is why Canada needs jets that work in the arctic like the Boeing super hornet not Harpers insider trading jets that don't work in the arctic. The balance of power preserves peace. Fiscal responsibility preserves civil liberty.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address - Video clip

"The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God."

"We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans—born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage—and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world."

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty. This much we pledge—and more..."

Heroin bust leads to Vernon man

Castanet is reporting that Ronald Charles Learning from Vernon is facing numerous charges following a large drug bust in Vancouver. On Jan. 8, a large quantity of heroin originating from Thailand was intercepted by Canada Border Services Agency air cargo officers at Vancouver International Airport. CBSA referred the matter to the RCMP, whose investigation led them to a Vernon residence belonging to Ronald Charles Learning.

Castanet is also reporting that Learning was charged with conspiracy to import cocaine October 2011 in that cocaine bust involving the Edmonton Angels (51) that extended to Saskatchewan.

Off-duty police officer charged with assault and unlawful confinement

The VPD and CBC are reporting that an off-duty Vancouver Police officer has been arrested for allegations of assault and unlawful confinement in Maple Ridge. The woman filed a report with the Ridge Meadows RCMP on Friday, saying that she had been the victim of a domestic assault.

Gang life in BC video

CBC is reporting that the CFSEU has released a new video dispelling some of the myths about gang life in BC. They included a picture of Sean Murphy in happier times with his mother before he was gunned down at the age of 21 in Abbotsford. The CBC article contains links to the video clips.

Prince Andrew Addresses Underage Sex Claims

In the news Prince Andrew Addresses Underage Sex Claims. What claims you ask? Not another case of royal infidelity? Kind of. He has been accused of having sex with a 17 year old prostitute 14 years ago. The New York Post is reporting that Virginia Roberts, now a 31-year-old married mother of three swore, in graphic detail, in an affidavit filed last week in Florida federal court, that "she was recruited by British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell to serve the sexual whims of American billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein and those of his pals." It comes as no big surprise that she claims Bill Clinton visited Epstein’s "orgy island."

Andrew is Prince Charles' younger brother. Charles is the epitome of maturity and stability while Andrew has always had a reputation for being a fruit cake. His nickname was Randy Andy in the British press. Sadly there appears to be some merit to the allegations. So much so the New York Post states that It’s time for Prince Andrew to man up. Under age prostitutes, paid very well to service the British and American elite. Unfortunately, it goes beyond that.

Vice dot com is reporting that this under age sex ring extended to child rape involving victims as young as 12 years old. They quote a Guardian article where Scotland Yard states there are merit to those allegations as well. Vice reports that "A man who goes only by the pseudonym Nick came out to the media and the authorities to allege that he was the victim of rape and abuse by high-profile political figures in Britain in the 1970s and 1980s."

Nick went on to tell the BBC that children who were swept up in this VIP ring were brutally abused, and would be attacked if they did not obey the men who were holding them hostage. The New York Post refers to Jeffrey Epstein as a convicted pedophile and registered sex offender. In 2008, Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to felony solicitation and procuring a person under the age of 18 for prostitution. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail. The Daily beast refers to Epstein as a Hedge fund mogul after his 2007 plea bargain. Donald Trump is one of Epstein's associates. Imagine that.

I am however, a little bit confused about jurisdiction. In New York State the age of consent is 17. In Florida state it is 18. So if the allegations are true and Randy Andy had consensual sex with a 17 year old prostitute in New York State 14 years ago, there doesn't seem to be any criminal charges just another huge embarrassment for the royal family. I'm not sure why the affidavit was sworn in a Florida court not a New York court since the act was alleged to have occurred in New York State.

Don't get me wrong. An old man having sex with a 17 year old girl is indeed pretty messed up. In Canada it was even worse. The age of consent was 14. We had all these 40 year old freaky pedophiles from Idaho and Texas coming here to take multiple 14 year old brides and there was nothing the law could do about it. If I'm not mistaken the conservative government recently fixed that and raised the age to 16. I think the intent of the law is for a consensual act between two 16 year olds not a 16 year old and a 40 year old freak.

"In New York State, a person who is under age 16 but older than 13 years old can consent to sex with a person who is no more than 4 years older; the crime of the 3rd degree rape only happens when a person over the age of 21 has sex with a person who is under seventeen years old or younger."

However, my blog is not a British tabloid. None of this concerns me. Jeffrey Epstein is definitely a pedophile but Prince Andrew is just an air head. What does concern me is the allegations coming from Nick about being raped and abused as a child by a child pedophile ring. That concerns me. Non consensual acts involving violence and murder. Like the Pickton farm.

#OpDeathEaters FAQ

Exaro News is reporting that MP pedophiles were untouchable.

Sadly MSN News is reporting that a Spanish judge charged 10 Catholic priests over the alleged sexual abuse of a teenage altar boy, court papers showed Wednesday, in a case in which Pope Francis intervened. The victim alleges "continuous sexual abuse by a group of priests of the diocese of Granada, from 2004 when he was 14 to 2007 when he was 17."
