LOSE ONE GAIN ONE



SB1381 DIES, MEDICAL MARY JANE LIVES

Temecula, CA – This morning as per the news, two things stuck out. The first bit of news was sad. 

The Label GMO bill SB 1381, died in the California Senate for having only nineteen of the 21 votes needed for advancement. We know WHO you need to vote out this California election and the next one coming; this is, if you are tired of seeing elected officials on their knees slow head-bobbing Monsanto. 

The second bit of news was a lot better on the surface, but still concerns GMOs in a more clandestine way. Would you believe Congress voted to cease funding the Department of Justice efforts to shut down medical marijuana dispensaries, caretakers, providers, and growers functioning legally under state law? Is the Drug War over?

Obama spoke out.

Seriously, it hurts to lose a battle when the side you pull for is trying to do the right thing.

DAT NIGGA GROWS – DIS NIGGA KNOWS



SLOWING DOWN SPEED WEED EVENT FOR A CLOSER PRODUCT LOOK

Temecula, CA – Aside from the crowd demos and party scenes, the upstairs second floor of LA’s High Fi Medical Marijuana Awareness Event featured some very interesting products and vendors. In this story we take a closer and more critical look in revealing the difference between patients through the products reviewed.

This review begins with eating a decorated cookie sample from Kushite Cookies. Totally SB420 compliant/Prop 215 approved, the semi soft cookie, a pot leaf shaped design, was delicious. The flavor was sweet and full, in the way you expect from using cannabis butter rather than store-bought. The icing drizzle was distinctive enough to stand out from the cookie icing, which blended perfectly with the gingerbread consistency of the sample. Packaged, $5 donation for two. The business owner, Raul, is someone who purchased a copy of Memoirs at the Ukraine Center NORML signing. Thanks to changing my diet [see past GMO/class reunion tales here], Raul had to recognize me by voice. For further cookie info 661.436.9543.

IN THE KITCHEN OF THE GMO FOOD FIGHT



THE FRONT BURNER – PART 2 of MARCHING

Now, today, through our phone work, we in California have accomplished what seemed impossible after the railroading of Prop 37. SB 1381 has made it through three Senate Committees!!!  It will be voted on the Senate Floor sometime between Wednesday, May 28 and Friday, May 30….then on to the Assembly…so we have one day to kick ass!

It’s been a stellar week for the GMO awareness movement.  Josephine and Jackson counties in Oregon both won local ballot initiatives to ban cultivation of GMO crops. They not only won, they did it by a landslide in both counties!

VT, CT, ME, HI, Josephine and Jackson Counties won because of people like you and me who took time out of our busy lives to ACT for our future and sovereignty as Americans.  

Now it’s time to make more calls because we anticipate it being a tough fight on the Senate floor. Who to call after the jump!

MARCHING AGAINST MONSANTO – NO LONGER A FAD



AN AMERICAN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY ENEMY

Temecula, CA – This past Saturday millions of people around the globe marched in group parades protesting the god-like stranglehold the multi-national corporation Monsanto has over the world and its governments. This common enemy to mankind is beloved by those who profess the religion of eugenics, a popular ethic the turn of two centuries ago by rich ‘white-privilege’ world class thinkers. 

Today covering the modern version of this ages-old equal opportunity American enemy, the trail crosses many paths. In the last six months, four unique points have joined in a common connection – Monsanto. This report covers the GMO food fight; the others, GMO pot, bible GMO, and GMO author reviews, like Brett Wilcox, can be and will be found in various reports posted here. Pictured here are 3 Temecula marchers showing their belief in this food fight. Jesus loves kids and Moms Against Monsanto was started on that same love principle.


May 24, this reporter was back in the OC with Label GMO coordinator John Diaz as marches against Monsanto occurred inside a lamestream media blackout. Despite this official igging, marchers and moms, near and far are feeling great. Why? Because the backlash against Monsanto isn’t a fad, a trend, or what’s hip. Not here, not there, not anywhere. Here’s a few shots and not the LMFAO kind, Monsanto!!

HIGH FI STEPPING IN HEMPTOWN



A PARTY ON TWO SCENES

Temecula, CA – On a crisp spring day in LA last Sunday, an urban giant medical marijuana event took place, as planned and at the site advertised. In the past some advertised LA marijuana events have been closed down. Not this time. The High Fi Medical Marijuana Awareness Event came off without a hitch.

Interestingly enough, this event demonstrated two demo markets within the MMJ bunch. Walking in the front door after a door check by security and through the entry, an immediate u-turn to the right yielded a flight of stairs to the second floor, where several 420Nurses did a high step to hemptown.


Inside the second floor entry was a short hall along which was a table of tacos served for a cash donation. The next room revealed a room full of vendors and event talent areas.

MARCHING AGAINST MONSANTO THIS SATURDAY



FIGHTING THE SERPENT OF EUGENICS

Temecula, CA – Saturday people across the nation will stand up to being slowly poisoned for profit by
Big Business, Big Government, Big Ag, and Big Pharma by taking it to the streets. These people will be made up of moms, students, foodies, activists, school teachers, scientists, kids, citizen journalists like myself, and other interested parties. Unlike in other parts of the world, things are more peaceful when the audiences are sheep and wolves rather than goats.

Absent will be groups of Calvary-style Christians, Muslims, Jews, and all other patriotic huddled masses. Who attends and who doesn’t is being recorded. (Psalm 37)

Recently over at a band’s studio a conversation started [by me] about the GMO fight, eugenics [now known by another name as the ‘white sheet words’ analogy illustrates] and world de-population attempts. Surprisingly enough, one of the most astute friends argued back in favor of de-population but for different reasons than expressed by those behind the Orange Curtain.

A POT POONANZA



BEHOLD, THE POT PIED PIPER COMETH

Temecula, CA – The ‘marijuana is cool’ movement is spreading faster than a chem-trail. I figured it was time to catch up and see where the movement is going. Since you now have a mixture of ego, reefer madness NV [new version], star power, sexual politics, power politics, scantily clothed young women, and Occupy all involved, well Sports Fans, it was time to get the real skinny to sum up this smoky slippery swirling situation for our readers as a PSA.

Using the LLWAP [my force] to turn a 3-day weekend into 4 (don’t ask), a pot poonanza appeared to answer all my questions and wonderings.

Here then is my Indiana Jones report, still smoldering, that begins in Los Vegas with Fast Eddy.

As usual, this story begins with a call on the red phone. It was Fast Eddy, who is experiencing what could be racial profiling of his pot delivery service drivers.
He is in the process of involving the famous Rev. Al Sharpton against the LVSD [Las Vegas Sheriff Department]. That could be a scoop, an inside scoop which is where I operate.

THE TUNE THINKING PEOPLE ARE HUMMING



A DENVER OPINION ABOUT PUBLIC PRIVATES

If marijuana is legal, and it is constitutionally in Colorado, then what is its highest and best use?

As medicine? Well maybe, and 20-plus states have established that as real enough to make pot available to cancer patients and others suffering from fatal or chronic ailments.

As a form of recreation? Cheers to that; people are allowed to have fun.

How about as tool for raising public revenues — sales tax moneys that allow governments to build schools, pave roads, pay police officers? All worthy causes.

But whatever list you make for pot’s benefits, it reasonably ought to include fostering the appreciation of art and allowing the artistic expression it inspires, especially before an audience gathered as a community, peacefully and with good intentions.

STONE DEAF HANCOCK DENIES JOY TO UPTOWN MUSIC LOVERS



PENCIL DICK CITY COUNCILS ARE STEPFORD WIVES

Temecula, CA – My grandfather lived in Louisville, Ky before it was segregated for about forty years. I asked him, what happened.

He said one night he 'went to sleep a free man able to go to the same places as anyone white, and the 
next day all the shops had signs that said ‘white
only’. Folks said the city council made the new rule.'

It stood as law until MLK, Jr. organized a bunch of high school kids with a dream too. But that’s another story, for another time.

After making an on-point Donald Sterling/”Duck Dynasty” joke — but before introducing his guests Seth Green and Dave Attell — talk show host Conan O’Brien cracked wise Wednesday on the recently announced marijuana-friendly Colorado Symphony Orchestra concerts

“The Colorado Symphony Orchestra announced it will play a series of ‘cannabis friendly’ concerts,” O’Brien started. “The first one is Sunday, and they’ll be playing Beethoven’s 420 Symphony.”

However, not everyone was laughing. The Colorado Symphony Orchestra may rethink its plans for headline-grabbing, bring-your-own-pot performances after Denver city officials last Thursday delivered a major buzzkill.

SMOKE SOME CALI LOVE THIS WEEKEND



HIGH FI MEDICAL MARIJUANA AWARENESS EVENT CALIFORNIA

Back in the land of LA, home of the cannabis culture originally, a huge medical marijuana event is set
to jump off on May 18 for a Sunday Funday. The location is 333 S. Boylston Street. Los Angeles, just a few blocks down the street and around the corner from my old townie’s neighborhood on Temple.

The 420Nurses invite everyone 21+ to JOIN US in this awesome event which runs from NOON 12pm-7pm.

Most of us have been affected by cancer, either through our family or friends. Fortunately for cancer patients, medical marijuana is an effective cancer treatment and an alternative to numerous prescription drugs currently used to treat cancers including brain cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, and more. Medical marijuana also helps to alleviate symptoms associated with traditional cancer treatment, including nausea and vomiting.

BIDEN BULLIES, BIDEN JUNIOR BENEFITS – BREAKING GAS SCANDAL



JUST ANOTHER RUN IN THE STOCKING

Temecula, CA – On the political front in the arena of hearing about the neo-nazi backing in the Ukraine by the Obama Administration is this blatant use of regional gerrymandering for profit, a form of insider trading

The beneficiary this time is none other Vice President Joe Biden’s highly educated 1% son, Hunter, a name you would expect from some B-grade Wedding Crashers. But you see Sports Fans, like GMO foods, things in real life aren’t as they are portrayed to be. Isn’t that what the Church teaches? Just asking??

The White House brushed off questions about any ethical issues on appointing the vice-president's son, Hunter Biden, to a leading post at a Ukrainian gas company. The concerns come amid US attempts to affect Kiev’s energy policy. 

POT VENDING TRENDING IN VANCOUVER



THIS KISS METHOD ELIMINATES PENCIL DICKITIS

Temecula, CA – As city councils across the country grapple with wrapping self-righteous mindsets around medical marijuana patients they see only as ‘stoners’ or the complexities of controlling a plant liked to an Irish woman, the level-headed folks of Vancouver, touted as the LA of the Great White North, have allowed a more standardized avenue of access for medical patients. 

Those crafty Canadians, eh? Stay tuned for the cool video, you Hosers.

The first cannabis-dispensing machine in Canada has begun operating in Vancouver, following the first machine installed recently in the US state of Colorado. The difference? The Canadian machine doesn’t ID you meaning there is no possibility of contracting pencil-dickitis resulting from greed and intrusion of personal privacy. If you have 3D glasses, reread the photo at right, red/green perferable.

NFL DRAFT RECAP AND SOME OTHER STUFF


FROM THE DESK OF THE “FUGITIVE” COMMISSIONER

Hello Football Fans,

This sports report is an attempt at trying to provide a "brief" summary of the recently concluded NFL Draft.

B.B. KING COMING TO MURRIETA, SORT OF



FILM TOUR RUNS TILL END OF MAY NATIONWIDE

Temecula, CA – Famed Bluesman B.B. King rolls into Murrieta on May 28th on film for a limited one day showing in a featured documentary titled, ‘The Life Of Riley’, a film title only those as old as King would get. However, as someone as legendary and stubbornly surviving on spilling the blues, you can’t fault the master blues-slinger for the old school tongue-in-cheek. Considering ‘Riley’ is ‘blues boy’ King’s real first name, you can see the humor. Having gotten this far in life as a blues singer/guitarist also means more than hitting the right notes, since B.B. doesn’t play cords on his Lucille.

These and other fun facts are revealed about B.B. King by narrator Morgan Freeman whose old school voice tone fits perfectly with the on-air autobiographical comments made by the musician. A seamless portrait is shown of King that isn’t as flamboyant as James Brown nor as emotional as Ray Charles but it is just as entertaining. A large part of this comes from the remarks from various other musicians/industry execs who offer their reminisces concerning King. 
 
Rather than a tortured and drugged soul like Billie Holiday, B.B. King stayed close enough to the music to avoid controversy. His strong Christian roots allowed him to showcase his talent and his constant touring, sometimes as much as 365 days in a year, built up a following but doomed a solid marital foundation at first.

SILVER’S SCHOTT TO THE STERLINGS’ BASKETBALL JONES



CLIPPERS BATTLE BACK, EVEN SERIES

Temecula, CA – In a story perhaps only interesting to those on the West Coast or basketball fans, the Blazing Saddles saga of Clippers’owners, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Sterling, moves to the next scene of this ‘B’ movie. Donald apologizes, Shelly politicizes, and Adam Silver re-emphasizes what this photo of Marge Schott depicts. It sez,“You’re outta here.”

Meanwhile back at the bench, the LA Clippers are the team in the spotlight instead of the cast of the ‘Fakers’, the name die-hard LA Laker haters have for the renowned championship team usually in the headlines this time of year. Pulling out a hard fought victory at the buzzer just adds to the plot.

This being Los Angeles, the home of Hollywood, the Clippers couldn’t have just played hard and gotten this far like the Celtics do. In the heat of their first serious playoff run, the owner’s wife has to bring a suit against hubby’s GF [Girl Friday] bonkee causing a third party [friend of a friend] to drop a ‘leak’ to TMZ – BOOOOM!

THE MATRIX REVEALED – OUR SUNDAY SERMON VIDEO



HYPOCRISY TODAY STARTS WITH DEMOCRACY NOW*

Temecula, CA – Jesus warns of false prophets and most people put this down as fake healers, ministers, or even the Catholic Church itself, but did Jesus just mean something religious?

The Matrix movie sent a chill down my spine that I could feel collectively in the theatre as I sat in the
darkened room years ago. Up until now I wondered why.

Like most people not involved in some war, street battle, suicide attack, or completely self-absorbed, we look up for inspiration and take our solace from what is best for us at hand. But we wonder, what is this splinter I feel in my mind? 

Amazingly, the minister in our video sees the world as many readers and writers do. His explanations show how the matrix exists around us, and touches on the lucky 13th Memoirs tie-in by referring to the Thor’s Day position, pages 271-272, 274, 285. After the jump, meet Steve Cioccolanti.

SEVEN – THE BLOODTYPE G CD REVIEW



PROG ROCK EVOLUTION AT ITS BEST

Temecula, CA – Years ago it was predicted to me that I would love living in a small town. I scoffed at this notion when I heard it but in those days I was young and dumb, and well, we don’t have to finish that. 

Living in this small town environment of T-Town has combined the best two of the three ‘besties’ around; music and friendship. In this rich valley, the Lord has blessed me with both. 

A true music scene, at least for So Cali, includes all genres especially underground ones that are popping for the hip. Since talent is not based on religion but encompasses all types, the Christian music genre called Prog Rock has strong and creative root-vines here. 


Recently sitting at a local eatery, cough, Rock N’ Jenny’s, on a Sunday I spied at the table next to mine, Charles, from the prog rock band BloodType G, last reviewed here when sponsored by a shoelace company. He was sitting with Hashemi and some others.

“We have a new CD out, just released a month ago…”

That was all I needed.

WHERE THE EAGLE SHAT IN THE WOODS



LOOKING PAST U.S. PROPAGANDA ON UKRAINE

Temecula, CA – With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day approaching while the last Pope asks for forgiveness, can you really believe the Corner Dispatch or the Nightly News? I don’t have to answer that these days. So let’s see what is really happening in the Ukraine from Robert Parry.


'As much as the coup regime in Ukraine and its supporters want to project an image of Western moderation, there is a “Dr. Strangelove” element that can’t stop the Nazism from popping up from time to time, like when the Peter Sellers character in the classic movie can’t keep his right arm from making a “Heil Hitler” salute.


This brutal Nazism surfaced again on Friday, May 2, when right-wing toughs in Odessa attacked an encampment of ethnic Russian protesters driving them into a trade union building which was then set on fire with Molotov cocktails. As the building was engulfed in flames, some people who tried to flee were chased and beaten, while those trapped inside heard the Ukrainian nationalists liken them to black-and-red-striped potato beetles called Colorados, because those colors are used in pro-Russian ribbons.

IN THE KITCHEN OF THE FOOD FIGHT – PART 1




CALLING YOUR ORDER IN

Temecula, CA – Today California is still engaged in passing a bill to label GMOs in food products like that in over 60* other nations. In this first part of our exclusive look at this ongoing effort from a coalition this news blog has covered since Occupy LA we begin by calling in your order.
 

California’s bill to label genetically engineered foods, SB 1381, is on its way to the Senate floor! 

However, the bill needs to be passed by the Appropriations Committee first. The hearing is scheduled for May 12.

Please call members of the Appropriations Committee before May 12 and ask them to vote yes for SB 1381. We again need to take action to bring SB 1381 before the Senate floor.

BREAKING NEWS – VERMONT SIGNS LABEL GMO BILL TODAY



TAKE THAT MONSANTO

Temecula, CA – This story is just breaking as I type this while listening to Call Your Friends – 
Zebrahead

Vermont, one of the smallest states in the union has struck a significant blow in Obama’s handing over America to Monsanto for experimentation at their profit. H.112, signed into law by Governor Peter Shumlin, means mandatory labeling of any GMO ingredient sold to the public, taking back an American right from corporate personhood and plutocracy from the government without a single water cannon being fired!

Seriously though, this is not only great news in showing people can make a difference against corruption but this is great motivation for a call-in coming up here starting tomorrow to advance California’s SB 1381, our homegrown, Obama-free, label GMO bill. Details tomorrow here at 8AM.

THE WRONGS OF JOHNNY-CUM-BAKELY



NO HOOPS FOR HOOPER

Temecula, CA – Echoing a story posted just a few days ago, Eddy Hooper, aka ‘Fast Eddy’(below, right) called just a short while ago to voice the same objection presented in this Calendar article. Suddenly pot is the panacea to every government money ill and woe. State by state, the apparatus is organizing so the states can make fill their coffers off sick people and those who are ignorantly bliss. With governments making nothing for the marketplace but taxes to feed themselves from, and continuing to show a steady growth rate of official welfare [subsidies], the love of money is shining like a new copper penny.


99% of the bureaucrats have no experience with cannabis and can’t see past the dollar signs of the medicine. Cigarette and alcohol sales are flat so their tax rates are also but the lure of green gold has a way of showing what the Bible says about money is true. It wasn’t enough just to return the 1937 cannabis status to form again, rather cannabis has to be turned into a booming industry leaving out, once again, the little man, the small business owner, and the do-it-yourselves. Before we get to Eddy’s logical plan, let’s explore just what is driving this new-found hypocrisy of evil, because that is the root of loving money, or is God a liar?

TICK TOCK, THE COUNT STRIKES TWELVE



FAMILY GUY AND THE DONALD STERLING TIMING

Temecula, CA – Almost like the Super Bowl this year, there is an element of Divine Intervention surrounding the racial outing of Donald and Shelly Sterling (nee Tokowitz). There is also a Divine Intervention element surrounding my released first narrative pop culture personal history of me and cannabis. For me, one is the forest and the other is the trees (pun intended).


Let’s first look at the forest. From knowledge about The Simpsons, we all know that most animation shows take about six months from conception to airing on the network. So here we have a cartoon show, routinely offensive or provocative, that airs an episode themed with positive values about whites to blacks, drawing from one of the series main characters dating a black daughter of the show’s more minor black character. Were the names Donald Sterling, the LA Clippers, racism, and V. Stiviano, a person who changed her name from Perez to Stiviano because of race, not a current top story, the show’s episode would still have been very poignant. If you haven’t seen Family guy from a week ago, please review and remember, they didn’t draw this in two weeks time, as far as I know.

RACE AND THE MISSING LINK



THEY ARE COMING

Temecula, CA – It seems that the Donald Sterling ‘race’ story is going to be here for a moment.   Having just watched the Barbara Walters interview with V. Stiviano, you gain a more thorough understanding of the relationship that developed between her and Donald Sterling. I have to apologize to Miss Stiviano. From Chapter 9 and pages 115-117 of Chapter 10, the story of Maxine and Ira, the K-Mart department, the scenario that Stiviano speaks of is born out.

Indeed, it is understandable that after meeting her, Sterling planned on finagling her for sex since he was used to buying people for pleasure.

However it seems from the length of time spent and the recorded conversation heard via leaked tape that she was his personal assistant or ‘wingman’ for trying to bring Sterling into the 21st Century on social skills. Stuck in his racist old school mindset, she tried to steer him toward better social skills. To say that the relationship was just sexual or that Stiviano is a ‘gold digger’ via Cruella De Vil Sterling is also ludicrous. 

Of course in the media, it’s all the woman’s fault as indicated by these remarks. Here we read this as Kareem wears his Capt. Blame-a-bitch hat.

RACISM SPREADS TO ASSHOLE



BANNED FROM BASKETBALL AND BUNNY BOOTY 

Temecula, CA – Being remorseful to an exclusive magazine, Donald Sterling said, “I wish I had just paid her off” after his latest blackballing (pun intended) of Bunny booty.   

Donald Sterling can’t watch his players on the court in California -- and now he can't play in Nevada.

A day after he was banned from the NBA for life and fined $2.5 million, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling also got the boot from the infamous Bunny Ranch brothel outside Carson City, Nevada.

The owner of the legal brothel, Dennis Hof, also announced that Sterling is banned from entering any of his six other brothels in the state.

"A lot of NBA players come here to party," Hof told the Huffington Post. "Out of respect to them, we have banned Sterling from coming here."

Hof issued the ban on behalf of his employees as well.

NAACP STRIVES FOR GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY FROM SILVER



CLIPPERS FOR SALE?

Temecula, CA – The National Urban League, the National Action Network, the NAACP and the
National Coalition on Black Civic Participation issued a joint statement cheering Silver's announcement that he banned Sterling for life and that the league would attempt to force him to sell the Clippers. The LA branch joined UCLA in giving back donations.

UCLA rejected a $3 million kidney research gift from Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who given a lifetime ban and a $2.5 million fine by the NBA for making racially insensitive comments. UCLA also decided to refund $425,000 Sterling had already donated. UCLA released a statement regarding the decision.

"Mr. Sterling's divisive and hurtful comments demonstrate that he does not share UCLA's core values as a public university that fosters diversity, inclusion and respect. For those reasons, UCLA has decided to return Mr. Sterling's initial payment of $425,000 and reject the remainder of a $3 million pledge he recently made to support basic kidney research by the UCLA Division of Nephrology. UCLA has received numerous inquiries about an advertisement in Sunday's Los Angeles Times falsely suggesting that it was UCLA publicly thanking him for the gift. The ad was placed by Mr. Sterling, not the university!"
