As this blog rapidly approaches it's 20 million views milestone I'd like to pause amidst the hustle and bustle for a Zen moment of reflection. This post will be a prelude to the overview that marks the 20 million mark in its journey. It represents a personal epiphany.
Although it likely went by unnoticed by most, there was a minor nuclear holocaust in my personal life that caused me great anxiety and forced me to take another standing eight count to process what happened and decide what course of action I would take in the future. It was a crossroads so to speak. Trolls trash and normally I don't give them the time of day because when push comes to shove they are just dust in the wind. Yet when someone comes to you for help and then screws you over for helping them one is forced to ask why bother? Why help anyone?
Then I get a call from someone I had helped in the past just touching base and giving me an update about how their son and daughter in law were doing. It was nice to talk to someone respectful and appreciative. I was grateful to hear how their kids were doing because I do genuinely care about them. Like I've said before, lots of people come to me for help. Some people I can help, some people I can't. That's just life in the real world.
Helping others isn't just a Christian principle, it's a Zen principle as well. Selfishness and greed are not tenants of an enlightened sage. Treating others they way you want to be treated is.
When I was young the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was the rage. I personally enjoyed it because I rode a motorcycle and I had studied Zen in the Martial Arts. I felt combining the two on a road trip was a natural conclusion of applying the ideals of Zen in real life.
I have in the past talked about writing a book of my own. I put out a free e-book on the 10th anniversary of the Gary Webb murder tying in his work with mine because I felt a kinship to the Gary Webb story. I was mortified to find out the CIA was behind the US crack epidemic in the /80's that I had devoted so many years of my life to combat. Yet it all made sense and pointed to Operation Fast and Furious clearly demonstrating that Iran Contra never stopped.
So my e-book stands as a tribute to Gary Webb and an overview of my background and how that led me to doing this blog. Yet the book I publish will be something entirely different. I don't want to profit from discussing crime nor do I want to dwell on crime. As Lao Tzu said "It is better to light one candle than curse all the darkness." Take it from me, I've cursed a lot of darkness.
My book will remix the ideals of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and comprise a motorcycle journey across Canada and the United States reflecting on lost liberty just like the original quest in the movie featuring George Christie called the Last American Outlaw. That profound documentary narrated by the Aging Rebel was originally supposed to be a modern version of Easy Rider following one man's journey on a motorcycle across the United States.
I think the theme of reflecting on lost liberty is very timely as the Constitution currently hangs by a thread. I think it's tragic George had a following out with the Aging Rebel and with Mead. I personally think it was because the Hells Angels put George out in bad and they didn't want to rock that boat. I have a huge respect for the Aging Rebel and there was nothing untrue about the narration he wrote in that profound documentary. Mead did a great job putting it all together.
So for me the journey continues in a posative direction endorsing civl liberty in a free republic. As Martin Luther King declared, "I say to you today my friends that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment I still have a dream." Rock the world soulja. Peace.

The Globe and Mail is reporting that British Columbia Premier John Horgan was formally sworn in (today) Tuesday - the first New Democrat in 16 years to hold the office – as he named a cabinet that must immediately turn its attention to a wildfire crisis that has displaced almost 46,000 people. Mr. Horgan, whose party worked with the third-place Greens to defeat the former Liberal government following the May 9 election, acknowledged the unfolding disaster that has overshadowed the transition of power.
“As we gather, we’re mindful of the tens of thousands of British Columbians who have been forced from their homes,” Mr. Horgan said during a swearing-in ceremony at the Lieutenant-Governor’s residence in Victoria.
The new Cabinet consists of: Carole James as the Minister of Finance and Deputy Premier. Mike Farnworth is the Minister for Public Safety and Solicitor General. Bruce Ralston is the Minister for Jobs, Trade and Technology. While Adrian Dix is the Minister of Health.
So let's devote some funds to drug treatment instead of drug promotion and bring back the Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Unit. We can balance the budget by fixing the BC Hydro fraud.

Scan BC reported that #PrinceGeorge #RCMP responded to reports of a 20 year old male shot at 1900 Strathcona Ave. The Prince George Citizen is reporting that the shooting took place near the corner of Strathcona Avenue and Upland Street at about 1:15 a.m. A security camera caught images of the getaway car which is described as a blue older-model four-door full-size sedan.
BC Local News is reporting that One man is in hospital and another individual has been arrested following a Monday evening shooting in central Abbotsford, according to a police news release.

The Edmonton Journal is reporting that "A record number of gangs have been identified in Alberta, and Alberta Law Enforcement Team (ALERT) Insp. Dave Dubnyk warns organized crime has tentacles that reach across provincial borders and deep into Alberta’s communities." The article states that "A Provincial Threat Assessment identified 138 criminal networks operating in Alberta, the highest total in four years" while in reality the article only names two.
The Red Scorpions and the Independent Soldiers along with the Dirty Few and all the others except for the Warlocks are all puppet clubs that sell drugs for the Hells Angels. The only other group they mentioned was the United Nations working in Grand Prairie. That is new and represents the only separate group in the list.
In Calgary the FOB - Fresh off the Boat were drug dealers that were supplied by the Independent Soldiers who in turn worked for the Hells Angels. In contrast, the FK- FOB Killers were a group of rival drug dealers in Calgary that sold drugs for the UN.
This blog supports civil liberty as defined in the US Constitution, the Canadian Charter of Rights and the Irish Proclamation. These documents define a free republic. As I repeatedly point out, these rights and freedoms are under constant attack not from terrorists or foreign threats but by domestic attacks from enemies within.
The Aging Rebel continues to cover the court case where the US Government persistently files appeal after appeal trying to tear up the Constitution and remove the freedom of association by seizing the Mongol patch and by banning the MC movement altogether.
As I repeatedly have said, committing crime and belonging to a criminal organization is not a Charter Right. However, the freedom of association is. Creating laws that ban civl liberty for suspected terrorists is problematic because as soon as the government does that, they then label anyone that opposes them as a suspected terrorist denying them legal representation and the right to a fair trial. Spying on citizens without a warrant not for criminal activity but for their political affiliations is another example of how civl liberty is under attack from domestic threats not foreign.
When this blog first started it had two founding premises. The first was that the Hells Angels are a criminal organization and the second was like unto it. That the CIA is also a criminal organization. In process of time I have amended my first premise.
Kerri Krysko stated that the Hells Angels are not a criminal organization, they are an organization of criminals. She said many members of the Hells Angels are in fact criminals but many more are not. This is true. George Christie stepped up to the plate and said the Hells Angels are not a criminal organization because the members who are involved in criminal activity are stingy and don't share the proceeds of crime with the other members. That is believable.
Consequently, I have amended my original position. In Canada the Hells Angels are without question directly involved in criminal activity as illustrated in Julian Sher's book the Road to Hell.
However, David Giles was caught on wire stating that not all members of the Hells Angels are involved in criminal activity but anyone who uses the name of the club for criminal activity must have that activity approved by the local executive. The Kelowna chapter was consumed in criminal activity. That clubhouse should be seized. The Nanaimo chapter was not. That clubhouse should be returned. The courts need to decide the fate of the East Vancouver clubhouse.
There are tons of members of the Hells Angles in Maple Ridge. Most of them are not involved in criminal activity. To claim that there are would be dishonest. Likewise, banning the MC movement in the United States and seizing the Mongol patch is an attack on the Constitution. Operation Fast and Furious showed us that the ATF and the CIA are the biggest drug traffickers on the planet. Gary Webb was right. Iran Contra never stopped. That is what needs to be addressed. Tearing up the Constitution and removing civl liberty does not solve the problem it compounds it.
Justin Trudeau made some powerful statements about the Omar Khadr settlement. “When governments violate Canadians’ fundamental rights, there have to be consequences and we hope that the message going forward to all future governments is: you can not ignore or be complicit in the violation of Canadians fundamental rights, regardless of what they did.”
This is true and it forces us to deal with our complacency in confronting Guantanamo Bay and the CIA black prison sites where prisoners are tortured and denied the right to legal representation and a fair trial. Initially the CIA created these black prison sites that knowingly violated the Constitution by claiming that they're not on American soil so the Constitution does not apply. The Canadian, Australian and British courts have disagreed. That makes us all culpable in the continuation of these black prison sites.
However, one has to ask why is Justin Trudeau supporting civil liberty now when he voted with the Harper government to remove it? Why did Justin Trudeau campaign against Bill C-51 only to create a new one expanding the powers of the Canadian secret service? It's all conflicted so it is.
Just to clarify, Seizing the proceeds of crime is very different than seizing an entire MC's patch. Even in Canada where the Hells Angels have a long documented history of drug trafficking, seizing their patch would be over the top because in any chapter that is involved in drug trafficking usually it is only one patch member involved with the approval of the executive. All the other members of the chapter are not involved.
In the US seizing the Mongols patch from every member is totally over the top since they have only established a nominal criminal activity among a few members. When the police and the government fear an organization, that is a good thing. The government is supposed to be afraid of the people. When they are not, that is when you run into problems with ruthless dictatorships kicking in your door without a warrant.
The documentary Freeway Ricky: Crack in the System showed us the problematic nature of seizing the proceeds of crime. Freeway Ricky was unknowingly selling crack for the CIA in LA back in the /80's. The CIA pulled the plug on the DEA's bust of Oscar Danilo Blandón because he was selling cocaine for the CIA. After the CIA pulled the plug on that bust the DEA became corrupt. Instead of stopping the drugs they just started seizing drug money and collecting finders fees. A former DEA agent confessed to that fact in the documentary.
Likewise in Surrey, the police are watching the drug trafficking that is going on out of Shakerz and refuse to do anything about it. The system is corrupt. Banning MCs will not stop the problem it will only make the corrupt officials feel more powerful.

OK I'm back. Back in black yo. My holidays are officially over. Monday I'm back to work. That went way too fast. Today I took the Sea to Sky Gondola and hiked up Sky Pilot. I almost made it to the summit. The last few ridges you really need ropes and harnesses to rappelling down. Getting up is OK but it's a lot safer to repel down from the hooks embedded in the rocks.
So here's the deal: People often come to me for help. Some people I can help. Some people I can't help. If you have substance abuse issues, I can't help you. You need rehab. I recommend the John Volken Society because most of the other rehab houses in Surrey are flop houses for addicts to use drugs. If you have mental health issues, I can't help you. I don't do Dr. Phil. You need professional help. If you have suicidal thoughts you need to call the crisis line:
1 800 SUICIDE | 1 (800) 784-2433
People come to me and share things in confidence because they know I respect confidence even when others don't. I will not betray confidence even when others betray mine because that is the way I roll. I was trained in New York City. My word in my bond.
In the words of Rare Earth "I put my faith in the people and the people let me down so I turn the other way and I carry on any how. I had my hand on a dollar bill and the dollar bill blew away but the sun is shining down on me and it's here to stay."

Hacksaw Ridge directed by Mel Gibson is on Netflix. Now that is valour. Something these plastic Surrey girl drug dealers cannot comprehend. The closest they'll ever get to valour is on Xbox.
The ability to work is a blessing. The refusal to work is a curse. It is the root of all evil. Parasites pimp the dream by taxing people who work because they don't want to. It has been said that the guy who was shot recently outside the sushi restaurant on 148th street and 108 avenue just got out of prison and started taxing everyone until someone put a bullet in his head and said tax that.
"Take up or quarrel with the foe to you from failing hands we throw the torch. Be yours to hold on high. If ye break faith with us who die we shall not sleep though poppies grow in Flanders fields." From Flanders' fields in France to the opium fields in Afghanistan, take heed of the dream.
Canada shouldn’t donate to the Clinton Foundation
The Toronto Sun is reporting that Canada shouldn’t donate to the Clinton Foundation. No kidding. The Clinton Foundation is a front for the Clintons to pocket profits from arms dealing and drug trafficking. Giving that private slush fund 20 million Canadian tax dollars is a criminal act.
Surrey needs a new Mayor
Linda Hepner is an idiot. She needs to step down and let Eileen Mohan take the helm.
Love for Canada

Scan BC is reporting that #Surrey #RCMP on scene a driveby shooting at 148 St & 78 Ave. Female bystander was hit by a bullet. Suspect truck was set on fire nearby.
It's actually 147 A street not 148. One resident stated they heard 6 to 7 shots and saw the vehicle speeding through the crowded residential neighborhood at 80 km/h. Tragic that a bystander was hit. That's a game changer. Firing a handgun from a speeding car in a residential neighborhood is just plain stupid. As long as we continue supporting lethal injection sites where people can smoke crack and snort cocaine this kind of senseless violence will only escalate. We are part of the problem not part of the solution. I believed in the New York model.
The Campbell River Mirror reported "Surrey RCMP are investigating after an innocent woman is believed to have been shot during a brazen daylight drive-by shooting on Sunday. The shooting, which occurred in the 7700 Block of 147A Street at around 3:30 p.m., is believed to have been targeted. When police arrived they found a woman suffering from a minor gunshot wound."
"According to Staff Sgt. Dale Carr, the RCMP believe that the intended victims fled the scene in a black Hyundai missing a front bumper while the suspects were seen leaving the area in a red pick-up truck. The red truck was later found on fire in the 9000 block of 150 Street. Witnesses reported that two males were seen fleeing the area."
CBC reported that there was a shooting outside a sushi restaurant in Surrey last Tuesday night at 148 th Street and 108 Avenue. The victim was taken to the hospital and is known to the police.

As a matter of fact, yes I am enjoying my holidays thanks. I did a short interview with Kelly Hayes over skype regarding the death of David Giles. Giles was no doubt a good father and a good husband. He was also a cocaine trafficker but he was not the only one.
Shakerz in Surrey is still supplying the Front Room and the Lookout homeless shelters with drugs including fentanyl. Since police know that and will not do anything about it, I sure as hell can't which makes this blog a complete waste of time. The BC Gang task force is now compromised just like the EPS. We are going to have to contract out gang enforcement to the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team. They are the only ones still willing to get sh*t done.
So yes, I am enjoying my holidays. I wasn't able to go on the two road trips I had planned so I dusted off my kayak and took it to Pitt Lake today. I paddled up Widgeon Creek then hiked up to the waterfalls. It was a peaceful getaway so it was. Mid week is not as busy as the weekend.
So there is it. The light penetrates the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. Peace.
Update: Blaze POS police informant receives a Judicial Interim Release on his Abbotsford firearm charges July 17th. Big surprise. The police don't seem too concerned about protecting the women he stalks. They rather exchange false intel for bogus arrests than protect the innocent. He needs to be charged with accessory to murder in the Britney Irving case.

Here it is. The new direction the Gangsters out Blog has taken is a loud and clear support for the huge influx of refugees from all over the world coming to Canada from the United States. This is a national emergency because public funding is limited. We need to open our hearts, open our wallets and open our homes to support them privately.
Recently we met a wonderful family from Colombia and Honduras with two amazing young children that came to Canada as refugees. Both parents were working in Houston for three years with valid green cards. All of a sudden the green cards were revoked and they were forced to leave with no place to go. The reasons why they can't go back to where they were living before that is private. The bottom line is that Donald Trump's revoke of the Statue of Liberty has taken hard working families and made them homeless. It is a national disgrace.
I will update a list of links where people can volunteer or donate. Since the United States has dropped the ball it is time for us to answer the call and meet that need just like we did during WWI and WWII. Perhaps it's time to move the Statue of Liberty north to higher ground. Peace.
The Inland Refugee Society gives free English classes for refugees. They need donations because they have refugees staying in homeless shelters that can't afford buss passes to attend their free english classes. Donating $10 or $20 would help them immensely.
In the words of Martin Luther King "He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat. He is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgement seat. Oh be swift my soul to answer him be jubilant my feet while God is marching on." Like a waving flag yo.

The most logical and simple solution in Canada is to give the refugees temporary social insurance numbers so they can work. If they want to come here and work then let them. The influx of refugees will create a boom in construction.
