I snowshoed up to St Mark's Summit along the Howe sound crest trail on Cypress today. That's the trail the two lost hikers were last seen on. This is the actual begining of the trail:
As I said before, it's possible but unlikely someone said I'm going to hike all the way to the Lions in winter on Christmas Day. No one with a brain hikes the Lions in winter. It is far more likely they cut up Christmas Gully on the back of Sky Chair on Mount Strachan and perhaps went over to the adjacent peak since the top of Strachan is all blocked off for skiing right now.
There wasn't much visibility from the top of St Mark's Summit today.
I made a previous post showing what you can see from there on a clear day. Today you could see tracks that someone had gone on beyond St Mark's Summit but that trail was not packed and it started snowing so I came back. Hiking all the way up Unnecessary Mountain from there in winter is a long haul. The back country skiers are better equipped for that.
The trail back was fine. However, I will say this: Coming down from the top of St Mark's summit there was a fork in the trail I didn't notice coming up. I saw the trail turned to the left and was well packed but no orange markers on the trees marking the tail. I continued straight ahead and followed the orange markers. Then that trail became soft and not very well packed even though there were several orange markers on the trees showing it was a proper trail.
I got concerned and said OK this is not the way I came up regardless of what the orange markers are telling me so I hiked back to the fork in the trail to see where the other one went. Sure enough another orange marker appeared then another and I clearly recognized this was the trail I came up on. The thing is, what on earth was that other trail? It would have been easy for anyone to have taken that trail back instead.
A friend from work once told me they tried taking the BCMC up Grouse mountain instead of the Grouse grind for a change. They kept following the orange markers until they became quite concerned that it was going way off in the wrong direction even though there were orange markers on the trees marking the trail. Then someone told her that was the Lord Baden Powell trail which crosses over the BCMC. She must have changed trails without noticing. That could have easily happened to the lost hikers on the Howe Sound Crest trail. If anyone knows what trail crosses the Howe Sound crest trail on the way back from the top of St Marks summit, I'd like to know. I dont think it was the Lord Baden Powel trail because it didn't have those unique trail markers. Time's running out. I certainly hope the hikers are found.

Oh how the mighty have fallen. The Vancouver Province ran an article by Senator Larry Campbell in today's paper. It was shameful. One thing he did say was very true. His founding premise. He starts off by admitting what we have been doing in the DTES to address the drug plague isn't working and needs to change. His claim that giving up civl liberty and letting the police open your mail is not a solution worth mentioning when the real solution is screaming in our face.
Larry Campbell used to be mayor of Vancouver. He was our own Davinci who conned us into adapting the Four Pillars Program in the name of compassion which in reality turned out to be the least compassionate thing we could have done. As soon as he sold us the devil's deal, the extremists threw away the three fundamental pillars of the four pillars program and let us run off on a one legged horse which converted harm reduction into harm promotion.
Larry Campbell did not create the problems in the DTES. There have always been alcoholics drinking aftershave in the DTES. Larry Campbell turned the existing problem into an uncontrollable epidemic of greed and exploitation that we now see today.
The new devils deal he is in a conflict of interest for promoting states "All levels of government need to support prescription opiate replacement therapy." Oh the cunning plan of the evil one. This will bankrupt and privatize our public medical system faster than you can say conflict of interest.
He claims "We know that supervised injection sites work to prevent death and address the issues relating to public disorder." No, we have seen it do the exact opposite. It took a bad problem and turned it uncontrollable by letting drug dealers sell harmful drugs publically with no enforcement of the law. Enforcement, Treatment and Prevention are the three key pillars the devil's advocates threw away in favor of harm promotion to assist the predatory drug dealers and the ruthless pharmaceutical companies profit margin at taxpayers expense.
Giving addicts pharmaceutical heroin at the taxpayers expense is absolutely insane. You can't get a MRI, cancer medication or an affordable place to live but you can get free heroin so the pharmaceutical companies can make obscene profits. That is pure evil.
In 2014 the Vancouver Sun reported that Senator Larry Campbell, while acting within ethics guidelines, has put himself in a clear “appearance” of being in a conflict of interest by accepting a post as adviser to a Vancouver company breaking into the medical marijuana business, say ethics experts. The former Vancouver mayor was named Tuesday to an “advisory board” for Vodis Innovative Pharmaceuticals Inc., along with ex-Conservative MP John Reynolds, once one of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s most high-profile allies.
So Larry Campbell has joined Mike Duffy's senators gluttony team and is making money on the side by promoting pharmaceutical profit. That is a conflict of interest. So here we have it - a drug dealer, service provider and a pharmaceutical pimp:
Two of the three are getting rich at the tax payers expense. The service provider is not. The drug dealer gives her drugs for free then takes all her money when she gets a trick. There is nothing consensual about it. It is pure human trafficking. God damn Larry Campbell and God damn his deal with the devil. Yes I do know that there is a God because in Whalley I shook hands with the devil. Right now the world needs a little more Wayne Moriarty and a lot less Xanadu.
I once heard an American patriot recommend the book None Dare call it Conspiracy by Gary Allen. If you want to know where I am going with all this have a read of that book.
It is with sadness we hear the news of two hikers lost snowshoeing on Cypress mountain since Christmas day. Their prognosis at this point does not look good. People keep stressing the importance of not going off the main trail or skiing out of bounds for good reason.
So my first question was were where they? One newspaper photo was at the beginning of the trail up Hollyburn ridge which is a well marked and well travelled trail. Snowshoeing on that trail is safe. Going beyond that trail at the top of Hollyburn ridge is not.
One media report claimed Search and Rescue received a tip claiming they saw two Asian hikers snowshoeing on the Howe Sound Crest Trail. That is a well marked trail in summer but is much more difficult in Winter. It goes all the way to the Lions which is much easier during late summer. One of the people lost was an experienced hiker. Which tells me it's most likely that they were trying to access the Christmas gully on the back of Sky chair on mount Strachan. That is a very common route in winter and climbing up the peak is very challenging in fresh snow and difficult to find in winter. That trail isn't as well traveled and packed as the Hollyburn ridge trail is.
If they skipped the Christmas Gully turn off and kept going along the Howe Sound crest trail, who knows where they could be. The trail goes up Saint Mark's summit, up Unnecessary mountain all the way to the Lions themselves. Getting to the middle of the two peaks on the Lions so you can continue along that trail to Porteau cove is insanely dangerous during winter. In summer when the trail is bare you have to cut across a very narrow path on the side of the West lion. When there is snow, that tiny path in inaccessible. It is not something I would consider doing in winter.
With 30 cm of fresh snow they should be able to tell if anyone has attempted to climb Unnecessary mountain recently. In a meter of fresh snow they wouldn't even be able to tell if someone had tried it recently and right now we are getting pounded with fresh snow. It is certainly possible for an experienced hiker to dig a snow cave and survive yet at this point is really doesn't look good. Let's hope for the best.
Update: It might be worth finding out what trail crosses the Howe Sound Crest Trail on the way back from the top of St Mark's summit and check that one for the lost hikers.

What's wrong with this picture? We are all relieved to hear a cease fire agreement has been reached in Syria but why was it reached between Turkey and Russia? I thought it was suposed to be a civl war. Evidently not.
Turkey wasn't just representing Turkey. They were representing NATOs support of ALL the rebels while Russia represented troops loyal to Assad. If neither party had got involved it is quite likely the horrible devastation to civilians would not have lasted so long creating such horrific turmoil for refugees. So Russia bombing civilians in Aleppo was bad but helping negotiate a peace settlement was good. Something that the CIA is try to upstage with nonsense.
Today I saw a news clip from an American media source and they were going on about this absurd nonsense claiming Russia hacked the US election again. I thought STFU. Why the hell are they still going on about that ridiculous nonsense? Because Obama is pushing the CIA fraud.
The New York Times is reporting that " The Obama administration struck back at Russia on Thursday for its efforts to influence the 2016 election, ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives from the United States and imposing sanctions on Russia’s two leading intelligence services."
First of all the CIA's claim that Russia hacked the US election is absolute nonsense. Putin was right when he said they need to get over it and they are just being sore losers. Putin pointed out that not only was Donald Trump elected but Americans also elected a Republican House and Senate. What did we hack that too he said. The CIA's claim is absolute nonsense. We know it is the CIA spamming the main stream media with that nonsense because it came from a fraudulent CIA report that was indeed laughable. So now Obama is running interference for the CIA.
Don't get me wrong. I liked Obama. He was a MUCH better speaker than George Bush. That idiot was too painful to listen to. Obama was a very intelligent speaker. I don't have a problem with Obamacare either. I'm from Canada. The American medical system is horrific. I just want to be clear in that the Obama Deception was tied to the Bush Clinton Fraud.
Obama used executive privilege to hide his administration's illegal activities in Operation Fast and Furious. That was obscene. Nixon tried to hide Watergate by using executive privilege but the court didn't let him. Fast and Furious was much worse than Watergate. They were selling guns to the Mexican Cartel and bring back tons of cocaine as payment. Iran Contra never stopped. The Washington Times confirmed that it was a CIA operation. Hilary Clinton was at the root of it.
So now the big news is that Yves Chandelon, the Chief Auditor for NATO, found out that the US was supporting ISIS. We knew this all along. Obama is trying to distract us from that fact with more absurd CIA smoke and mirror nonsense.
On a more positive note, it appears that our prayers for Aleppo have been answered.

CBC is also reporting that "Lisa Dudley's parents Mark and Rosemarie Surakka are trying to raise money through a crowdfunding campaign to help with the costs of suing the federal and provincial governments. It's been eight years since their daughter was killed. Dudley, 37, and her partner, Guthrie McKay, 33, were shot September 18, 2008 in the living room of her home in Mission."
We are well familiar with this tragic case locally and there is much to say about it. Guthrie McKay and Lisa Dudley were shot in what the police described as a targeted hit. Guthrie died instantly but Lisa was shot while tied to a chair and was finally found alive four days later but tragically died en route to the hospital. There are several tragedies that surround this case. The shooting was itself tragic. The fact that the police officer sent to investigate neighbors' 911 call of shots fired never got out of his car to investigate the shooting was another tragedy. The fact that the RCMP only sent one officer to investigate a shots fired call is yet another. The list goes on.
I want to emphasize that the police did not shoot either of the couple. That was someone else. We need to remember that and remember who the bad guys are, who they worked for and what the motive for the targeted hit was so we know who to place the proper blame on. Yet the police were clearly negligent in this case on both fronts.
The officer never got out of his car to investigate. Had he done so he would have found Lisa still alive. Yet it wasn't just criminal negligence of one officer, it was the entire RCMP for only sending one officer to respond to a shots fired call. They'll send in 5 cops with riot gear and shotguns to kick in an elderly man's door if they think he might be a danger to himself so why on earth would they just send one officer to respond to a shots fired call? That was negligent.
The fact that Lisa's parents are suing the RCMP and the government is not new. This was announced February 2013. The fact that the Harper Government's response was obscene is not new either. That was also announced back in February 2013.
June of 2013 CTV reported that "A B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled Friday that a dead woman still has the right to sue, upholding a case with potentially massive legal implications." So the court already rejected the government's obscene claim that the case can't proceed because she is dead. What's new is the fact that the parents have set up a crowdfunding page to raise money for the legal challenge which is something we all should support because it realtes to public peace.
First let's look at the Harper Governments initial obscene response to the court application. The Globe and Mail reported that "a government lawyer said Ms. Dudley had no rights because she is dead, making explicit an argument laid out in the government’s response to the civil claim. 'If a victim has a right of action, it cannot be continued after they are dead,' David Quan told the court." That is absurd. It is a wrongful death suit. That kind of law suit isn't actionable until the party has died. The parents are arguing that the RCMPs negligence in this tragic case violated their daughters Charter Right to life and security.
I am normally the first one to cringe when people misinterpret the Charter of Rights but this case is different. Smoking crack or having the government pay for your heroin is not a Charter Right. That is obscene. This application cites section 7 of the Charter of Rights which states "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person." This ideal is similar to the US Constitution which secures a person's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It relates to the government's Constitutional obligation to provide public peace.
Obviously the government is not responsible for all crime that is committed. Yet since the police are paid with tax dollars, there is an inference that when you call 911 for a life threatening emergency the police will come to render assistance. Failing to do so is negligence.
This case opens Pandora's box because it relates to liability. Can businesses in Newton sue the RCMP and the City of Surrey for not responding to their 911 calls reporting drug dealers selling drugs outside their place of business? They most certainly can.
Support Lisa Dudley's crowdfunding page
Your News Wire is reporting that Yves Chandelon, the Chief Auditor for NATO, was found dead of a suspicious suicide in the city of Andenne in the Belgian Ardennes. Right after he had discovered that the US was supotrting ISIS just like the TV Series American Odyssey.
NATO funding ISIS is nothing new. Russia was supporting Assad in Syria while the Americans and the Israelis were supporting ISIS and the Rebels. When British Weapons Inspector Dr. David Kelly blew the whistle on MI 6 for launching Operation Mass Appeal and intentionally sent the media false reports about Iraq's weapons of Mass Destruction he also died of a suspicious suicide just like Gary Webb and so many other whistleblowers.
Instead of arguing whether or not Gary Webb or the Chief Auditor for NATO committed suicide or was murdered, we need to focus on what information they brought to light that the CIA wanted hidden from the public. Watch the movie Kill the Messenger. Look into the facts surrounding American support of ISIS. Every time they kill a whistleblower we need to bring attention to what the whistle blower was trying to expose. That is what we need to focus on.
Yeah I'm crazy. Crazy for thinking anyone out there gives a sh*t. Yet when push comes to shove there is nothing more crazy than Operation Northwoods. That is a historical fact.
The British Sun reported that Peter Polshikov was also reportedly found dead from gunshot wounds in his home in Moscow soon after news broke of the assassination of Russian ambassador in Turkey, Andrey Karlov. It is alleged two empty bullet shells were found in the flat in the city and that a gun was discovered under the sink in the bathroom. In February of last year CBC reported that Boris Nemtsov, a charismatic Russian opposition leader and sharp critic of President Vladimir Putin, was gunned down near the Kremlin. Are we beginning to see a pattern?
Just like how Susan Lindauer testified about the Lockerbie bombing. Major Charles McKee, of the Defence Intelligence Agency, filed a complaint about the CIA's drug trafficking in Lebanon. 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 which blew up over Scotland as the result of a "terrorist" attack. Yet the only motive anyone had to blow the plane up was to kill the whistleblowers on their way to Langley.

Aaron Chapman recently put out a book called The Last Gang in Town: The Epic Story of the Vancouver Police vs. The Clark Park Gang. This is a historical look at a Vancouver gang back in the /70's. The description on Amazon reads: "A riot at a Rolling Stones concert opens this compelling story of a year-long confrontation in 1972 between the Vancouver police and the Clark Park gang, a band of unruly characters who ruled the city's east side. Corrupt cops, hapless criminals, and murder figure in this raucous history with contemporary overtones that questions which gang was tougher: the petty criminals, or the police themselves."
I guess my big push for the New Year is a break from the persistent insanity that we are being spammed with. The world needs a little more Wayne Moriarty and a little less Xanadu.
Michael Smith is reporting that Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson is heading the Taxpayers foundation's naughty list for going tax-mad this year. We talked about how Robertson raised property taxes 3.9% recently in Vancouver promising to kick back 0.5% for harm promotion. So in reality what did he do? He just raised rents and increased the number of homeless on the street. Great thinking. Gregor Robertson is part of the problem not part of the solution.

I was going to call my Christmas message this year Christmas in the Hood, but since I already did that on Father's day I thought I'd talk about another challenging topic and that is dealing with loss at Christmas. Christmas is supposed to be such a happy time. Yet suicide rates increase this time of year. Most families aren't perfect so all the pressure of getting together at Christmas sometimes brings heartache and sorrow. Especially for lost loved ones.
Earlier I talked a little bit about how much I liked the movie Collateral Beauty. Everyone deals with loss in different ways. Lindsey Stirling said when she lost her best friend to cancer it really set her back and she took a considerable amount of time to grieve that loss before putting out her latest album Brave Enough which meant she was brave enough to come back after that loss.
My daughter was face timing with some friends from Honduras the other day. They had all the young cousins together and were setting off fireworks at night. Something I could relate to before fireworks became a banned substance in Surrey. Sometimes she'd put me on and since I don't speak Spanish I'd always be at a loss of what to say and usually just come out with a yo que pasa hombre, como estas? This time there was several young children present and all I could think of was the Christmas song feliz navidad so I shouted out feliz navidad! Then the young children who didn't speak english remembered that song and all started singing the english verse I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart. It was priceless.
That wonderful little girl had just lost her mother to cancer and this would be her first Christmas without her mother yet they had a very close extended family. Money can't buy that. Peace.

Crime City Surrey is reporting that "They're buying drugs right there outside where they're cashing their cheques" - seems a good place for police to attend." One would think. Failing to do so is criminal culpability. Minutes later Crime City Surrey then tweets "Users overdose minutes after cashing assistance cheques." Who's the criminal now? Us or them? Right now it's hard to tell.

The Montreal Gazette is reporting that "The Quebec Court of Appeal has acquitted a man who was convicted a decade ago of murdering one of the highest-ranking Hells Angels in Quebec during the biker gang war. The appellate court delivered its decision on Wednesday, acquitting Tony Duguay, a former member of the Bandidos, of the murder of Normand (Biff) Hamel, a member of the Hells Angels now-defunct Nomads chapter based in Montreal."
"The decision was based on new evidence supplied by a witness who testified against Duguay during his trial. The witness, a former gang-member-turned-informant named Sylvain Beaudry, admitted after the trial that he lied while on the witness stand."
Normand "Biff" Hamel was a member of Maurice "Mom" Boucher's white supremacist SS motorcycle gang until it disbanded in 1984. That's when he and Mom became Hells Angels prospects. Biff was a prospect of the Laval chapter and was present when the Hells Angels murdered his sponsors in the Lexonville massacre.
Two years later the Hells Angels wanted to take over the Death Riders. The take over became absolute on May 4, 1987 when the President of the Death Riders, Martin Huneault, was shot to death in a Laval bar. No one was ever arrested for the murder, but just hours after Huneault's funeral, Death Riders Mario Martin and André Richard were seen meeting with Hells Angels Maurice "Mom" Boucher and Normand "Biff" Hamel. Boucher and Hamel received their colours after the incident and Huneault's murder allowed the Hells to completely take over drug trafficking in Laval and the lower Laurentians area. Biff Hammel was murdered on April 17, 2000.

When tragedy strikes it's always heart wrenching. Yet every crime has a means and a motive. If someone accused of committing a crime didn't have the means or motive to commit the crime then that is a red flag calling for further investigation. Recently there have been two more terrorist attacks in the news. One had a motive the other did not. Both are suspect.
Why on earth would anyone drive a truck into a crowd of pedestrians at a Christmas market anywhere especially in Germany? Germans love Christmas and their Christmas market. During the war soldiers on the front line called an impromptu ceasefire on Christmas Day to exchange gifts with the enemy. Christmas in Germany is a very peaceful time.
As soon as the horrific incident occurred, CBC reported that The White House said it "appears to have been a terrorist attack." White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said the U.S. was ready to assist Germany in investigating and responding. Evidently Ned Price was suspiciously fast with a press release on the matter.
CBC also reported that it has been less than a month since the U.S. State Department called for caution in markets and other public places, saying extremist groups including ISIS and al-Qaeda were focusing "on the upcoming holiday season and associated events."
Isn't that ironic? Just like how the Israeli intelligence agencies warned the Brussels Airport of a possible attack right before it happened. Then got the contact to do their security after the attack. Cynical minds would declare the Israeli Intelligence agency that won the contract were the ones that had a motive to commit that crime not some random lone wolf.
So what is the motive for this attack on the Berlin Christmas market? There is none. In contrast, the other attack in Turkey did have a motive.
The Guardian reported that "The Russian ambassador to Turkey has been shot dead by a police officer who shouted 'Don’t forget Aleppo' as he pulled the trigger." In this incident a motive is apparent. Russia was directly involved with killing civilians in Aleppo so it is logical someone would target Russia in response. That one makes sense.
I am however, having difficulty with the math in relation to the attack in Berlin. All of a sudden the media is reporting ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Christmas Market attack in Berlin despite the fact that there is no motive. Germany certainly didn't bomb Aleppo, Russia did. The math I'm having trouble processing is the fact that the Americans and the Israelis were supporting ISIS in Syria to defeat Assad. Hillary Clinton used her position as Secretary of State to convince the American Military complex to supply arms to ISIS through Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
I did not make up Operation Northwoods. I did not make up the 911 inconsistencies. Architects and engineers in the field declare that for a steel framed tower to collapse at freefall speed into it's own blueprint, the load bearing beams have to be blown out like a controlled demolition. I did not make that up. Experts in the field of controlled demolition declare it.
I did not make up the attack on the USS Liberty. That really did happen. I did not recall the air support sent to defend the USS Liberty when it came under attack saying I want that ship sunk. That was President Johnson after Kennedy was assassinated for vetoing Operation Northwoods.
Given the reality of Operation Northwoods, 911 and the attack on the USS Liberty, it behooves every rational mind to question the means and motive of every criminal act relating to acts of terrorism because the CIA is the largest terrorist organization on the planet.
The only motive for a terrorist attack on civilians at a Christmas market in Berlin points to German election candidates not ISIS or lone wolves. Lest we forget Sarkozy and the Karachi affair.
Germany of all places has to be suspicious of false flag attacks. That's where it all began. Hitler burned down the German parliament building and blamed it on terrorists to gain the powers of Chancellor. Then he burned down a German radio station and blamed it on Poland to justify an invasion. The rest is history.

CBC is reporting that "Hells Angel Stéphane "Godasse" Gagné, 47, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in Lavigne's death and was sentenced to life in prison, where he has now served more than 19 years. Gagné, who is eligible for parole in 2023, filed a motion last year to have his request for parole heard earlier. The motion was granted." Diane Lavigne was a widowed prison guard with two adult children. She was shot dead June of 1997 during the Quebec Biker War.
CBC also reported that as a child, Gagné was bullied, he said. In high school, he started dealing drugs. "No one bothered me. I learned that money brought respect," he said. He quit school, started stealing cars and kept on dealing. Soon, he affiliated himself with the Hells Angels in order to make sure he wouldn't get himself into trouble, dealing in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood, which would become a hotbed of biker activity. Gagné said It was known in wartime that if you didn't kill, you don't move up. Yet there is nothing noble in killing a woman.
The day after the shooting, with news of the murder plastered all over television screens, Gagné's wife pronounced that whoever killed Lavigne must have been a repugnant person. Gagné, ashamed, slunk out and became a police informant. CBC claims in the summer of 1997, the biker war was in full swing. A fellow biker told him they had a job to do - a prison guard to kill. "I had two choices. Go to the police, or say no and be killed," he said.
This was Paul (Fon Fon) Fontaine's coacused. "On Sept. 8, 1997, Gagné and a different partner, Paul (Fon Fon) Fontaine, killed Rondeau and wounded Corriveau by firing several shots into the bus the guards were riding in as they headed to the Rivière des Prairies Detention Centre. The guards were about to pick up detainees who had court dates that day. Gagné was arrested on Dec. 5, 1997, and, after deciding to become a witness for the prosecution, he pleaded guilty, on March 25, 1998, to murdering Lavigne and the attempted murder of Corriveau."
When asked Why kill a prison guard instead of a member of the rival Rock Machine gang? He said "Prison guards can't kill you." This just keeps getting worse. Denying his parole isn't going to bring the woman he murdered back. It's just a no win situation. The driver of the motorcycle Stéphane was on when he shot Diane Lavigne, André (Toots) Tousignant, was murdered months after Lavigne was killed.
I think it's important to know that he was asked by the club to kill the woman. He didn't really have a choice. The job he did with Fon Fon was for Mom Boucher himself. He is the one that ordered the hit. Mom Boucher had a similar start as Stéphane. Boucher was a petty thief who robbed an old man with a shotgun. He got his patch after serving a prison sentence for armed rape. There is nothing there to admire.
Even in the top picture of the Quebec member on a run in Ontario, the guy has a full fairing and is wearing shorts. He looks like an idiot. People who ride motorcycles make fun of people who ride with shorts because your bare skin will turn to road kill on the dry pavement if you go down.
In contrast, I see there is a new season of the Musketeers on Netflix now. The French version of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table or the chivalry aspired to in the movie Kingdom of Heaven with Orlando Bloom. Now that is noble. As William Wallace said in the movie Braveheart, lands and titles don't make a man noble. Neither does money from drugs.

Back to reality. Global on Twitter is reporting that Surrey RCMP are investigating a shooting in 13500-block of 91 Ave this morning. One man is in critical condition.
The Huffington Post is reporting that at least 11 people died of drug overdoses in BC on Thursday alone, six of them in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. If we do not start arresting the drug dealers that are selling drugs tainted with Fentanyl, we are all criminally culpable.
Gregor Robertson is a flaming idiot just like Linda Hepner. Kirk LaPointe and Doug McCallum would have been much a better choice. Different people have different plans on how to address crime in our community. Kirk LaPointe wants to get rid of open drug dealing at Main and Hastings and so do I. Meanwhile back on the ranch, Donald Trump has launched an impressive course change in political corruption south of the 49. No wonder the CIA's drug trafficking network opposes him so bitterly. Donald Trump is delivering hope while others just talked about it.
This is wonderful news. Kati, a drug addict on the Surrey strip that was interviewed by CBC has come clean and is endorsing more long term treatment as opposed to more harm promotion.
I didn't see the new Star Wars but I did see Collateral Beauty. I was in the mood for something different. I read a couple of lousy reviews but wasn't swayed. I like to make up my own mind for myself usually and in this case I'm very gad I did. I thought the movie was profound.
F*ck the haters. Haters gonna hate. What the hell were you expecting? What are you all like Shallow Hal incapable of solemn reflection and unable to produce a rational thought? The point of the movie is to get people thinking as different people deal with grief different ways. Some people retreat into their shells. Others turn to drugs and alcohol. I think all of us have experienced some kind of loss or grief in our lives and eveyone likely knows someone who abuses drugs or alcohol.
I really liked Will Smith in the Pursuit of Happiness. I had to walk out of the theatre during the scene when he was homeless with his son. It hit a little too close to home. I was told it had a happy ending if I had stayed but I wasn't able to go through that at the time.
I would highly recommend Collateral Beauty to anyone with a brain who is wiling to think outside the box this Christmas. Elizabeth from Pirates of the Caribbean played love. Although the movie didn't go into depth expanding on the meaning of the title it did touch on it and imply that when something bad happens there is always something else to be grateful for like the song Photograph by Ed Sheeran. I would like to use the Collateral Beauty title as a theme for my 2017 Summer Jam and pick up where that movie left off.
Right now I am really enjoying Lindsey Stirling's Gavi's Song. It's peaceful and elegant. The song is about her best friend who went to the hospital for cancer. They started writing the song together and promised they would finish it together when he came home from the hospital. Tragically he died before they could finish the song so after a long period of grieving she finished the song and created a masterpiece. That is collateral beauty. It's the last song on her album Brave Enough.
I would like to add that right now it is indeed cold as f*ck on the motorcycle but it's not as cold as being homeless. It infuriates me when I hear people say the homeless are homeless because they want to be. That is absurd. People need homes not drugs. With all that money we are pouring straight into the predatory drug dealers pockets who are brutalizing the homeless as we speak we could build a lot more affordable housing instead.
I should redefine the new direction of this blog just so we're all on the same page. We all make choices in life and we all face the consequences of those choices good or bad. Consequences aren't always bad. Forest E. Witcraft once said: "A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child." I've always tried to live by that motto.
Now my kids are all grown up and I can move on to other things. Start to travel again. Wouldn't that be novel. When my kids were growing up I was always fearful about what kind of life they would have when the cost of living keeps rising at a faster pace than wages. When I was young moving out and living on your own was much easier financially than it is now. Homelessness has skyrocketed because affordable housing is out of reach for so many people. As a parent you always want your kids to have a better life and for the world to be a better place when you leave than when you came into it. In many ways that seems to be an unrealistic expectation now.
Yet as I keep saying hope is not lost. Nevertheless, this is just a blog. There are millions of blogs out there. It's just one voice, one opinion, one dream so to speak. Yet others contribute to it and send me links on a regular basis. That's what made this movement a bit of a coalition so to speak in addressing gang conflict in our community. Something I have had experience with in the past.
Micheal Green from TBM Scandinavia is a good man. Quite often he posts pictures on facebook with inspirational sayings about real friends and starting over. There are so many trolls and negative people in this world it is important to be able to filter that trash out and focus on posative things. Not caring what anyone thinks might be a bit short sighted but stressing about trolls is a complete waste of time. I see it more of a Ricky Nelson Garden Party. To thine own self be true. Do what makes you happy and you will find peace.
This blog gets a lot of traffic. 18 million hits is hard for me to comprehend. Some people think they are entitled to control the direction of the blog. I do believe in free speech. People are free to set up their own blogs and talk about whatever they want. This blog is not a Hells Angels support group. It's not a Hells Angels haters group either. George Christie and Kerri Krysko have helped me see another side to the conflict. I support the Aging Rebel.
Although I spent many years confronting the US crack epidemic in the /80's, my burning passion has always been civl liberty and the establishment of a free republic. I'm not very religious any more but I have a passion for religious freedom. I'm not going to hate on any religion. As Martin Luther King said, I've seen too much hate to want to hate and every time I see it I say to myself that hate is too great a burden to bear.
This summer I have a new project. I'll be launching the Gangsters Out Summer Jam 2017. It will be different than the Kelowna Summer Jam when we highlighted the Hells Angels involvement with crime and murder in Kelowna or the Surrey Winterfest which highlighted the brutal murder of Janice Shore on the Surrey Strip. It will remember that but move forward from there in a posative direction once again encouraging people to leave the gang life voluntarily and help people see some of the good things in the world that you can't find in a crack pipe or a heroin needle. Like Wayne Moriarty, I am enjoying my sobriety and am encourage others to do the same.
As Sylvester Stallone once said in the movie Rocky Balboa, It's not how hard you can hit in life, it's how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. Peace.
The Evening Standard is reporting that Canadian Isabelle Lagacé, 28, plead guilty to smuggling cocaine after she and two others were caught with 95 kilos of cocaine in their luggage aboard a cruse ship from England to Australia.
Her co-accused are Melina Romberce, 23, and Andre Tamine, 64. Tamine did not enter a plea and he will stand trial on February 3 in NSW district court. No plea was entered by Romberce and a decision on her trial will be made by the central local court on December 21.
The story made big news because they were two pretty young girls posting pictures on Instagram. Now the paper claims one of them was a porn star. Some how I highly doubt a porn star from Quebec was the mastermind behind that operation. That is a large amount of cocaine. The sad part is that now she will be spending the prime of her life in prison. The Rolling Stone magazine reported that 63-year-old André Tamine was found holding 60 kilos himself.

The Vancouver Sun is reporting that "Poised but defiant, Miss Canada will be vying for more than the winner's tiara when she competes in the annual Miss World pageant in Washington this weekend. Anastasia Lin wants to tell the world about the evil of organ-harvesting. Lin was due to compete at Miss World last year when it was hosted by China but was barred from entering the country due to her activism against persecution of Falun Gong, a meditation practice that she follows and that China's government has outlawed. U.K.-based Miss World is allowing her to compete again this year in the U.S."
Some U.S. media organizations say Miss World, which has Chinese corporate sponsorship, has prevented them from speaking to Lin. But she was allowed to speak to The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday in which she spoke forthrightly about her cause, although she sidestepped questions about whether she had faced restrictions. "Everybody is tied economically with China. China's soft power is so huge that no one really dares to speak up," said Lin, 26, at a hotel just outside Washington at the National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland.
Lin, who was born in China and moved to Canada with her mother at age 13, has riled China's government with her public advocacy. She has alleged that tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been killed so their organs could be harvested and sold for transplants. She has spoken out at a U.S. congressional hearing, and since her exclusion from last year's pageant in China, she has attracted world media attention and given testimony before the British and European parliaments. She says the Miss World pageant, in which contestants each present a cause or platform, is another opportunity to speak out and give people hope.
"I'm talking about organs being taken from prisoners of conscience, meaning citizens who have not done anything wrong but to speak their mind and believe what they believe in. It's like innocent citizens being killed for their organs and their body parts sold for profits. It's happening and people need to pay attention to it," Lin said.
Here here! Here we have another beautiful woman with a brain and a heart. She has a social conscience and is displaying colossal courage to speak out about a repulsive injustice that most people are too busy to even notice. What a wonderful choice to represent Canada.
New Tang Dynasty TV is reporting that Everything seemed to be going well for Miss Canada, Anastasia Lin, during an interview Wednesday promoting the Miss World pageant - until she was asked whether she would be attending a screening of her new movie, which has reportedly enraged officials in her native China. Lin shot a glance at the four pageant officials assigned to listen in. "You can ask them," she told a Washington Post reporter.
As we reported, Anastasia Lin starred in the Vancouver-made film The Bleeding Edge which demonstrates the heart wrenching atrocities surounding organ harvesting of political prisoners by Communist China. These aren't Communists. These are money hungry Capitalists lining their pocket by murdering political prisoners. That is Bad Business. God bless Anastasia Lin.
MSN News is reporting that 243 years ago today, In Boston Harbor, a group of Massachusetts colonists disguised as Mohawk Indians board three British tea ships and dump 342 chests of tea into the harbor. The midnight raid, popularly known as the “Boston Tea Party,” was in protest of the British Parliament’s Tea Act of 1773, a bill designed to save the faltering East India Company by greatly lowering its tea tax and granting it a virtual monopoly on the American tea trade.
Assassin's Creed 3 has a video trailer of the event. Interesting how back then people stood up against corporate monopolies. Back in the day when the Rothschild’s used hostile takeovers to gain a monopoly on the Oil market with Standard oil, the courts said that kind of a corporate monopoly was illegal. Antitrust laws prevented it. Now corrupt politicians whose campaigns are bankrolled by these scoundrels say gouging the consumers through corporate monopolies is good business. Not. It destroys the free market and everything real conservatives stand for. Times have sure changed so they have. It's time to wake up and smell the coffee so it is.

The Telegraph is reporting that civilians in the last remaining rebel-held neighbourhoods of east Aleppo were subjected to another day of bombardment and shelling on Wednesday as international actors squabbled over the terms of their surrender. Russia is supporting Assad while America and Israel are supporting ISIS and the Rebels. There are no good guys in his conflict.
This isn't really news but since a few people sent it to me and the police response demonstrates the New York model I will comment on it. The New York Post reported that a biker shot a man in the gut after he moved an orange traffic cone that was holding a parking spot outside the Hells Angels East Village clubhouse early Sunday, cops said. However, there's a little bit more to it.
A guy in a mercedes got out of his car to move a pilon reserving a parking spot outside the New York clubhouse. A member of the Hells angels told the guy not to touch it. The two began arguing, and three other men who were traveling with the guy piled out of the mercedes, at which point the biker threw a punch at the guy. Other bikers spilled out of the clubhouse at 77 E. Third St. and a street fight ensued, during which an Angel was knocked to the pavement by a man who was preparing to kick him. A prospective Hells Angels member, who was also on the ground, pulled out a handgun and fired a single shot that struck Martinez in the abdomen, cops said.
Objectively that should be the end of the story but it's not. Now the NYPD are purposely "f*cking" with the Hells Angels because they won't cooperate with the police investigation. Just what are they suposed to cooperate with? The fifth amendment gives people charged with a crime the right to refuse to answer any questions that might incriminate themselves. If you are going to charge someone with an offence you need evidence.
I am not a friend of the Hells Angels especially the New chapter. Not long ago a dead woman was found outside their clubhouse and they once again refused to cooperate with the investigation. That was a lot more serious than a bunch of yuppies trying to pick a fight with the Hells Angels. Historically the president of that chapter threw his girlfriend off the roof of the clubhouse to her death. That guy was killed by the San Francisco chapter leader before he could go to trial. Those cases were serious. This case is stupid. Reserving a parking spot outside your place of business is not a big deal.
It does however, show how New York cops can put pressure on anyone they want. That's how they got rid of most of the gangs wearing colours in New York. If they were in colours the cops would harass them. Just like they harassed the drug dealers on the street selling crack. Where there is a will, there is a way. In the words of Steppenwolf from the Easy Rider soundtrack, "God damn The Pusher man. Well, now if I were the president of this land You know, I'd declare total war on The Pusher man." Word.
However, let's not forget that although New York cops were at one time part of the solution to the city's drug plague, at another time they were part of the problem. Lest we forget.
In Vancouver during the PNE local residents used to stand in front of their house with a sign and charge people to park in front of their house. The Hells Angels have a right to reserve the parking spot in front of their own place of business but they do not have the right to reserve the parking spots across the street or in front of neighbouring businesses. It's as simple as that.

Wayne Moriarty is a voice of reason in a perfect storm of insanity. On the front page of today's Vancouver Province was the headline A Sobering Second Thought. Inside was a magnificent article written by Wayne Moriarty expressing his opinion that Sobriety needs more investment during the fentanyl crisis. Three cheers!
In the article he states "To date, more than $40 million has been spent by government departments in British Columbia on the fentanyl crisis. On Tuesday, Vancouver city council approved a tax increase of 0.5 per cent on all homeowners in order to further assist in this fight. The tax is expected to raise approximately $3.5 million next year, with most of the money going to all the predictable resources required when 'harm reduction' is your guiding principle."
"Here’s an idea: Instead of going all in on harm reduction, why not go all in on sobriety? Sobriety, sadly, has been lost in much of the discussion around the fentanyl crisis, and yet sobriety is the only thing that is guaranteed to work. Instead of more safe injection sites, more naloxone kits, more paramedics, more of everything and anything that will keep drug addicts stoned and safe, let’s invest in sobriety and, by extension, a vastly improved quality of life."
"Sometimes, when I listen to people talk about the care and treatment of addiction, it’s like they are talking about Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Everyone, and I mean everyone, who is dying in the grip of addiction can save themselves by getting sober."
"Instead of this obsession with harm reduction, seemingly at the exclusion of all other solutions, our obsession ought to be overwhelmingly focused on having abusers of drugs and alcohol stop abusing drugs and alcohol. This means more publicly funded treatment centres and way way way more beds for the mentally ill." Here here!
The Price Pro Solution
Price Pro is the perfect example of the absurdness of the policy. Price Pro is a store that raises money for a private non profit organization that actually helps people get off drugs. Most of the other government funded treatment centres in surrey are flop houses that promote and exploit the methadone scam where doctors and pharmaceutical companies turn heroin addicts into methadone addicts for life and make a killing off the tax paid prescriptions. Price Pro can't get government funding because they aren't in on the pharmaceutical scam. They actually help people get off drugs and as a result can't get government funding. I kid you not.
Update: Well, well, well. I'm not the only one who agrees with Wayne Moriarty on sobriety. Several people wrote into the Vancouver Province expressing their agreement with his position. Sounds like the silent majority are finally beginning to speak up against the belligerent brats. People need homes not drugs. We need to spend money on housing not harm promotion.
You can't force all addicts into rehab but you can force criminals into rehab if they are prolific offenders committing crime to pay for their addiction. The courts used to make that a term and condition of probation.
Update: Turns out the response to Wayne Moriarty's article has been overwhelming and he put ut a follow up article as a result.
"Reaction to last Wednesday’s column staggered me. It wasn’t the volume of emails that had me reeling, it was that 98 per cent of the hundreds of responses sent to my inbox agreed with me. Some readers agreed with me more than I agreed with myself. I’ve been in the news business almost as long as ink, and I can tell you this: If I argued grey is a sadder colour than rose, I might get two-thirds consensus, so 98 per cent agreement on anything is, well, as I said, staggering. "

The end is near. The end of fiscal responsibility and public health care. News 1130 is reporting that @CityofVancouver votes to pass 2017 budget with additional 0.5% property tax to increase opioid response. Property taxes going up 3.9% total. The mayor's glutton council will use any excuse they can think of to raise taxes. Now they are pimping the fentanyl crisis which they created as an excuse to raise taxes again and kick back a fraction of a percent to promote more deaths. They don't even call it a fentanyl crisis. They are calling it an opioid crisis.
Heroin isn't the problem, fentanyl is. Predatory drug dealers mixing fentanyl with heroin, crack, cocaine and even pot. That is the problem. Instead of arresting the drug dealers selling the tainted drugs they help their business by promoting addiction. That isn't just insane, it is criminal culpability. They are the ones that created the crisis by refusing to arrest the drug dealers selling the tainted drugs at Main and Hastings and on the Surrey Strip.
So first they create the problem, then they use it as an excuse to raises taxes like they just had a referendum on and failed so now they just do it anyways just because they can. Before I dive into Justin Bieber's criminal culpability, let's have a look at the Mayors' Gutton council. The media is referring to them as the Translink Mayors. WTF? They created a duplicate office for their gluttony and it just slides by unnoticed because Christy Clark is more than happy to have someone else raise taxes for her. Translink - the ones that are too cheap to buy snow tires for buses in Metro Vancouver so they pull half the busses off the street when it snows when demand is higher. Thanks for nothing idiots.
Justin Trudeau, friend of Communist China jumps in and says they're right we need more lethal injection sites. No we don't. Those are part of the problem not part of the solution. The four pillars program has four pillars not one. When you eliminate the other three pillars, you are trying to ride a one legged horse as harm reduction become harm promotion. Don't get me started on Insite's political slush fund.
Let's talk to the real experts on the matter. Former VPD Ninja Inspector John McKay and Dr. Colin Mangham. Dr. Colin Mangham is an expert in the field of prevention and has worked in the field since 1979. He lost his job for speaking out against Insite.
Inspector John McKay explained the root of the problem. As soon as you set up a lethal injection site or needle exchange, the police let drug dealers sell drugs outside. Why do they do that? That is the problem right there. Getting addicts out of the allies is one thing but promoting the drug trade by pouring gasoline on a forest fire is something very different.
Now the pinnacle of the medical corruption has been revelaed once again. The Surrey Leader is reporting that a former RCMP officer is pushing to solve the problem by giving addicts medical grade heroin. How the f*ck is that going to solve the problem you raging lunatic? Who is going to pay for the drugs?! I can see it now, you can't get an MRI or Cancer medication but you can get free heroin. Every addict in the world will come here. That will bankrupt our sacred public medical system faster than you can say criminal culpability.
We need to stop the corruption and the insanity by simply arresting the drug dealers selling drugs tainted with fentanyl. That's it. Raising taxes to promote the drug trade means we all have blood on our hands for being accessories to murder.
Remember when Vancouver City Hall bought the Drake Hotel from the Hells Angels to turn it into social housing? They paid them twice as much as it was worth. They took $2 million out of social housing and gave it straight to the Hells Angels. This is the same proposal. People need homes not drugs. God help us. No one else will.
Update: God Bless Wayne Moriarty
Wayne Moriarty is a voice of reason in a perfect storm of insanity.

The Washington Post is reporting that Kellyanne Conway calls the CIA report on Russian election meddling ‘laughable and ridiculous’. The CIA report claimed Russia interfered with the US election to help defeat Hillary Clinton. That is indeed ridiculous. It fails the test of believability and clearly shows how desperate the CIA were to get Hillary elected.
I remember hearing in the news the absurd claim about Russia fixing the US election to defeat Hillary and wondered where on earth such a ridiculous idea came from. I thought it was from the National Inquirer. Now we have it. The ridiculous report came directly from the CIA itself.
I don't like Donald Trump. I don't support his racist insanity. Yet I realize some people who voted for him are not racist. They voted for him for other reasons such as a genuine desire to see the economy improve. Deep down that's what we all want.
Hillary Clinton on the other hand is a dirty criminal. She has been deeply involved in the CIA drug trafficking network since Mena Arkansas. Hillary Clinton was the author of Operation Fast and Furious. She was not an enemy of Putin. She sold him weapons grade uranium for his nuclear missiles. The CIA were the ones that helped put him in power.
The movie the November Man with Pierce Brosnan was based on a true story. So here's the deal. I realize no one cares about the CIA's drug trafficking network because most see it as a problem too big for anyone to fix. Yet that doesn't mean we have to go to the other extreme and become mindless sheep who believe and accept every ridiculous claim they make.
Why is the CIA still spamming the mainstream media with ridiculous propaganda? Because they can and for the most part, it works. We need to give our head a shake and use our brains so that we can see through the mindless propaganda and see exactly where they are trying to take us because they are the real enemies of the State. They are the ones who broke their oath to preserve and protect the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic.
Update: I'm not going to flog a dead horse. Hillary lost the election. We need to get over it and move forward not backward. She is a dirty criminal so there is no love lost. If the Democrats want to retake the White House they have to run another candidate. It's as simple as that. Bernie Saunders was a better choice. The criminals pushed for Hillary and lost the White House as a result. That was a natural consequence of that bad decision.
I'm not going to get into a long winded debate about Republican vs Democrat or Capitalist vs Socialist. Communist China is the biggest threat to world peace on the planet. Second to China is the CIA who are pushing the same agenda - the destruction of civil liberty and the free market.
The point of this post was simple. I realize no one cares about the CIA's drug trafficking Network that murdered Gary Webb, but I do. Even if we chose to be an ostrich and ignore all that evidence because there is nothing we can do about it, then the least we can do is open our eyes and see through the ridiculous propaganda the CIA continues to spam the mainstream media with so we are not deceived by it. Consider the source.

Kelowna Cap News is reporting that Kelowna RCMP seized 1.32 kilograms of suspected fentanyl-laced heroin and 2.1 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine. "Terry Weninger, 44, and Robert Colbon, 59, of West Kelowna, along with Darcy Lenko, 52, of Penticton, each appeared in court and have since been remanded into custody. Police say each have been formally charged with multiple counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
Lance Wust, 42, of Kelowna has been charged with possession of a controlled substance. After his first appearance he was released by the courts on strict conditions. The remaining individuals arrested, a 52-year-old West Kelowna man, a 22-year-old Vernon man and an 18-year-old Kelowna woman were released from police custody. Each face potential charges and are expected to appear in court at a later date."
I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but that fentanyl-laced heroin looks green. You can kinda tell something is wrong with it. This is the RCMP press release.
MSN News is reporting that the United States owes Communist China 1.5 trillion and that China is the largest foregin owner of US debt. The Business Insider is reporting that China's economy has grown so fast, that even as it today towers over most developed nations, and in fact as it finances their budget deficits, it's still receiving foreign aid from them.
China gets more than $2.5 billion a year in foreign government aid - and taxpayers and lawmakers in donor countries are increasingly asking why. Because that is the biggest fraud since the Wall Street bailout and the Great Canadian bank bailout Harper lied about.
Communist politicians in China are the wealthiest in the world. Those hypocritical gluttons are the ones that need to feed the poor in the rural areas instead of pimping them off to the rest of the world so they can intercept that foreign aid and put it in their own pockets. God as my witness, giving Communist China control of our debt and giving them Canada's oil rights is a far bigger threat to world peace than any smoke and mirror Islamophobia. Mark my word.

Ziggy Matheson who was described as being involved in a top level drug bust on Vancouver Island has been found GUILTY on counts 2, 3, and 4 all for Possession for the purpose of trafficking. No sentencing date set yet.
Among the drugs seized were two kilograms of cocaine, 12.7 kilograms of marijuana, 10 litres of GHB or the “date-rape” drug, one kilogram of crystal meth and 200 ecstasy pills.
Ziggy's co accused, Ali Arash Ziaee, plead guilty to three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking related to cocaine and GHB. He received a 30 month sentence.
Oral Reasons for Sentence Re Accused Ali Arash Ziaee
 To briefly summarize, therefore, the police investigated individuals they suspected were involved in the trafficking of narcotics. Surveillance was conducted and the police obtained phone and text conversations between various persons involved in this operation. As the Crown has summarized, Mr. Ziaee was clearly a courier for this enterprise, a trusted employee, if you will, of the people who were above him in the drug hierarchy, and he was eventually arrested on June 6, 2013.
 At that time, he was in possession of two kilos of powder cocaine upon his attendance at the apartment outlined in Count 2, the so‑called stash house which was used to break down the cocaine into packages for street‑level transactions, known as a dial‑a‑dope operation. In the apartment there was approximately 10.5 grams of crack cocaine attributed to Mr. Ziaee that was found in a small safe. In addition, in his vehicle, there was 7.5 litres of GHB, the subject matter of Count 5.

I saw this wonderful commercial on TV the other day. It's an add for Amazon that shows a Muslim and a Priest forming a friendship swapping stories over a cup of tea. As they develope a friendship, they obviously confided in each other that as old age settles in they both find kneeling down to pray hard on the knees so they both get the same idea. They both order a set of knee pads for each other on Amazon. This is what a free republic really is. The freedom of religion. This is the dream that Martin Luther King marched for. That the US Constitution would be more than a nice piece of paper hanging on the wall. Martin Luther King's dream was that one day the US Constitution would actually be implemented and followed. I share that dream.
Don't fear the hijab. Get to know the person under the hijab.
From a distance we look the same.
The Irish Times is reporting that a former chief of staff of the Real IRA named Aidan O’Driscoll aka the Beast died after he was shot three times today in Cork. We know that if he was shot in Cork, he wasn't shot by the Protestants so the UDA, UVF or the UFF are out. Looks like it was obviously internal so to speak.
The people who call themselves the real IRA are a splinter group. They're not the original IRA. They simply call themselves the Real IRA because they still oppose any kind of peace settlement the original IRA made in the Good Friday accord. At least that's what I thought.
It appears that I'm a bit out of the loop so I am. I've been back from Ireland for 26 years now. The interesting thing is that Aidan O’Driscoll and Alan Ryan from the Real IRA waged a war against drug dealers in Dublin. So here we see the Real IRA start doing what the original IRA did back in Belfast. They start shooting drug dealers dead. Aidan does time in prison because he was a member of an illegal organization. So here we have a paramilitary organization waging war with drug dealers and the government deems them an illegal organization and sends them to jail. So which side is the government really on then? Are they supporting drug dealers? This has become somewhat problematic so it has.
The Independent reported that "However senior sources say the Real IRA was simply demanding large sums of cash off criminal gangs and if they refused to pay up they became targets for the feared dissident gang who traded under the IRA name." Hmmm... That's possible too so it is. The stories I could tell. It's hard to sift out the truth between the lines so it is.
Sounds like things are heating up in the Holy land again only this time it's about drugs.
Notice the Easter rising pin on the beret. God love 'em.
There are two reasons the Irish Republicans chose the Easter Lily to commemorate the Irish Proclamation and the Easter Rising. First is the obvious in that the Easter Lily blooms at Easter and symbolizes the resurrection. The other reason is because the Easter Lily is white, green and orange just like the flag of the Irish Republic. Green represents Catholics, Orange represents Protestants and White represents peace between the two.
The Irish Proclamation declares "we pray that no one who serves that cause will dishonor it by cowardice, inhumanity, or rapine." When I first arrived in Ireland many yeas ago I landed in Dublin right after the IRA had kidnapped a Dentist and held him for ransom. That was a criminal act. It had nothing to do with fighting for freedom. It was simply extortion. After they kidnapped him they cut off his fingers and sent them to his family with the ransom note. That was a brutal and senseless act that violated the Irish Proclamation. It was inhumane rapine.
That was Dessie O'Hare. He had been kicked out of the IRA and the INLA at the time. O'Hare had broken away from the remaining INLA leadership in Belfast and set up his own group, the Irish Revolutionary Brigade, which operated in the border region out of Castleblayney. It was described as having "a handful" of members. In 1987 O'Hare and three other INLA members kidnapped John O'Grady, a dentist from Dublin, and demanded a IR£1.5m ransom. The Dentist, John O'Grady, passed away in September of this year. So in reality Dessie O'Hare didn't represent the IRA or the INLA, he only represented himself.
The IRA stands for the Irish Republican Army. Irish Republicans are not people who believe in George Bush. They are people who believe in a free republic. I share that belief.
