AN OXYMORONIC STONE



EVERYBODY WANTS SOME, THEY WANT SOME TOO

Temecula, CA – The cover of Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green shows two people holding a bong, giving a thumbs up, in opposite contrast tee shirts with no text on either shirt. Closer inspection shows one pair of the sun shades is faked. Most people pay little attention to that detail and hardly ever tie the picture in with the book’s sub-title, ‘The Autobiography of My Alter Ego’. Yesterday we both went to the public hearing concerning an ‘emergency ban’ on outdoor medical marijuana grows across Riverside County.


The County of Riverside Transportation & Land Management Agency (TLMA) is the umbrella agency for six county departments. They are the Planning Department, Building & Safety Department, Transportation Department, Code Enforcement Department, Environmental Programs Department* and the Administrative Services Department. In total, TLMA employs more than 600 dedicated public servants who strive to meet the needs of the residents of Riverside County. – Website info

Also keep in mind that nowhere is ‘agency’ or administrative law allowed in the US Constitution. On a county level when you have 600 hungry mouths to feed with full insurance benefits, you need more than a church bake sale, especially when one of your listed addresses shows either a private residence or a street corner. So you need to always generate income. To do that the government makes rules to strip the little man of his wealth. That mindset was started in this country by Prescott Bush and his plan for the government to outlaw private ownership of gold worked. Lately with the bookends of Bush-Obama, the country has chained students, the future hope for this country, to financial indenture; the general population to the service sector, and threatened seniors, the poorest, with accusations social security is an ‘entitlement’. All, while the Dow tops 17,000! Wowser!

VIKING DEFENDS RIVERSIDE MJ



WHY CCHI IS NEEDED

Temecula, CA – It has been said that freedom isn’t free, that you must constantly defend it. That freedom which we defend is based on laws used to set our freedom boundaries. However, once a law Operation Bus ‘Em In was announced.
is in place, the fight to keep the set law boundaries starts. In a system whose overlord is Mammon, not every duly appointed/elected official can be expected to recognize campers from migrants or stand with citizens against Federal encroachment, as Jeff Stone’s sniveling printed statement of capitulation showed when

Aside from the obvious factors of human culpability, there is an insidious aroma perceived when the above are mixed with the twin horns of greed and ignorant arrogance, stirred by the spoon of self-righteousness. With these thematic virtues in a storm-tossed salad featuring the ‘greens’ of cannabis [money, neophytes], you can’t just take a picket sign made from home to this gunfight. You need ‘old might’ to stand against such turbulence. You need a Viking, those legendary warriors of old who sailed on stormy seas to slay giants and dragons.

Well, that was then and this is now. As Riverside County moves tomorrow to open public discussion of an ‘emergency ban’ [presumably for water conservation] against outside marijuana grows authorized by Prop 215, a modern day Viking has sounded the call to make the medical marijuana patient and grower alike aware of this undermining of the law. Amazingly enough, this Viking hails from my hometown so you know this is a story I have to cover.

WEIGHING IN ON GAZA



3 THINGS TO REMEMBER

Temecula, CA – Several friends and readers have asked me to write something concerning the present state of hell in Palestine. Knowing I was going to be asked this because of my writing stance on some major issues like the recent migrant flap in Murrieta, I have been doing research on the subject past the latest skirmish with its rising death toll of over 700 Palestinian civilians and about 30 Israeli soldiers. So before I weigh into this discussion with a well written piece by Stephen M. Walt, Professor of International Affairs, Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, I would remind our readers of 3 things to remember.

First, Donald Sterling’s admission of how ‘black Jews’ are treated is in reference to Israel being populated and run by Ashkenazi Jews. Second, this epic struggle written about almost 2 thousand years ago shows it to be continuing in spite of innocent deaths, like all the teenagers killed to light this latest explosion of bloodshed. Possibly because of this, it has been predicted from the Bible Code that Netanyahu will be assassinated, a prediction that couldn't be fulfilled until he came back out of retirement. 


And three. Peace will come to the Middle East, but it will be brought forth by the last anti-Christ. As we all celebrate an end to the untenable relationship between the historically hostile groups, the anti-Christ will lower the boom on us all. And it is not like we weren’t warned, that’s the purpose of prophecy.

COMIC-CON BABY



COSPLAY ON THE BIG SCREEN AND PRINTED PAGE

Today is the start of 150,000 rabid comic book fans of all stripes descending on San Diego for Star Wars and Avengers coming out, 2015 and 2016 already promise to be the biggest years in film history, and Comic-Con could very well be Ground Zero for a pop culture singularity.

Comic-Con 2014. It’s the Mecca of all things nerdy for the summer, where some of the biggest names in geek culture and entertainment come to show off what’s to come for the next few years. This year’s event is a bit different, though: with movies like the new Guardians of The Galaxy.

Already Jack Black has been outed not for his costume or character, but for his tummy, after being spotted by fans also in Cosplay. No doubt local Club Cosplay promoter Ivan Promotions will make an appearance to pump fans up about the next edition of Club Cosplay happening at M15, August 16. So far over two hundred tickets have been bat-roped by awaiting costume play fans anticipating the next exciting adventure.

The big stories will be Marvel.  Expect to hear plenty about Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy, and potentially some details on six of Marvel’s upcoming films, including Doctor Strange and Captain America 3.

TEEN PILOT CRASHES



SEARCH CONTINUES IN FATHER-SON ADVENTURE

Temecula, CA – In a sad update to a story I was keeping an eye on because of the record attempt by the father-son team [like the Running the Country father-son duo] and the city of origin, Indianapolis, comes this breaking news.

An Indiana teenager who was attempting to set a record for an around-the-world flight was killed when his plane crashed in the Pacific Ocean, and crews were searching Wednesday for his father, who was also onboard.


Family spokeswoman Annie Hayat said the plane flown by 17-year-old Haris Suleman went down shortly after leaving Pago Pago in American Samoa Tuesday night. Hayat said the body of Haris Suleman had been recovered, but crews were still looking for Babar Suleman.

I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, THEY SCREAM



HOW DASTARDLY IS MONSANTO?

Temecula, CA – Fighting the war on food and against GMOs, you tend to see how small the big is.You tend to think that’s it’s us versus them. In reality it’s more like what you see in Thank You For Smoking. With that thought in mind today’s news article takes a look at the most unknowing casualty and it’s not your kids or unborn generations we speak of here as we examine just how dastardly Monsanto really is.

A bill has been introduced that would ban a state's effort to craft any meaningful GMO labeling in Washington DC. Allowing GMOs to be called ‘natural’ is to counterfeit nature, a left-handed slap to God as creator of all. But when you own Congress enough to control its direction, have the ‘ins’ on the Supreme Court, and are in a tie with Scrooge McDuck for wealth, you have money bin size balls. 

However, it would seem that the Label GMO folks might get the last laugh here. Recently the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), who along with Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is suing the state of Vermont to overturn its GMO labeling law, served up ice cream and root beer floats to members of Congress. It was all part of the IDFA’s 32nd annual Capitol Hill Ice Cream Party, carried out with help from IDFA and GMA members like Dean Foods, Nestle USA, Unilever, J.M. Smucker Co. and more.

GETTING READY FOR KICKOFF

THE FUGITIVE COMMISSIONER'S SHORT LETTER FROM SUMMER CAMP



Hello Football Fans,


No doubt, some of you have been thinking about the start of the football season (thank goodness World Cup “futbol” is done for four years; I watched 120 minutes of scoreless play – Argentina vs. Netherlands in the semifinals, before the outcome was decided by “free throws”.  Then I watched the final – 113 minutes before either team scored).  

College FOOTBALL games begin in just over a month and then one week later the NFL season kicks off Thursday, September 4th.

Enjoy, 

The Fugitive Commissioner

EAT – PLAY – DRINK



JEFFERSON AVENUE’S UPTOWN TAVERN IS NO LAUGHING MATTER

Temecula, CA – Long a fixture in Temecula, the elbow joint at the bend of the L-shaped strip mall just past the Via Montezuma ‘T’ intersection looking toward Old Town on Jefferson has housed several hangout joints and venues, starting with the Q-Club and recently House Bar and Grill. However the latest version being blown out by my compadre Ivan Promotions is the Uptown Tavern. Recently I visited there. Here is my report.

The newly completely renovated layout which debuted in May features an arcade area with old school video titles from the 80s and 90s, PLUS two pinball machines. This area has its own mezzanine complete with tables and a lounge pit which is raised above the floor. At the end of this area is the stage abutting the corner. The floor area houses four league ready pool tables for viewing from the mezzanine and more café tables beyond with a center walk through out to the rear lot and smoking patio, also renovated.

Against the north wall at the top of the mezzanine area runs the bar with ample flat screens for viewing events. Their neighbors are the many classic bottles of various and sundry alcohol spirits looking very spiffy. Beneath this elegant splendor flashing winning smiles with ample room to maneuver stand ready to serve bartenders, who form a staff prettier than many, earthier than most, and as unique as any in T-town. BTW, this bar carries Black Market’s Hefeweizen and Rye. This leaves just the food area and bathrooms, after the break.

SEPARATISTS MISTAKENLY DOWN MALAYSIAN PLANE



R.I.P. FLIGHT MH17

Temecula, CA – For the second time in less than five months, tragedy was struck Malaysian Airlines. This time as just recently revealed, it was a casualty of the war now going on in the Eastern Ukraine. 

Flying at 33K feet on a route from Amsterdam to Malaysia in route to Australia for a world conference on AIDS, the giant 777 was filled with the cream of the scientific research on the subject. Although aware of the ground war happening in that part of the world, the Malaysian Air authorizes had been assured of a widened corridor of safe passage for commercial planes.


In recorded cell phone conversations between separatists groups, it can be heard that the plane was shot down mistakenly by a general who thought it might be military, defending the decision later by saying that ‘it must have been carrying spies’. Anyone listening can hear this grab at straws.

UPTOWN AT THE CLUB



IVAN PROMOTION BECOMES IVAN ENTERTAINMENT

Temecula, CA – Remember the old Q-Club? That’s now under the new name of Uptown Tavern but 
located in the same spot at the bend of the 
L-shaped strip mall with a liquor store at one end and a Mexican restaurant at the other. One of T-town’s original hangout spots has been renovated for a while and hosts pool leagues, but the core owner wanted some new spin.

Fresh off the Club Cosplay debut comes the return of Zorro, oops, I mean Ivan Promotions, now kicked up a notch to Ivan Entertainment. Ivan is back in Temecula doing what he does best, bringing his expertise and knowledge to the local entertainment scene. With the shutdown of The Vault, most of the scene had scattered all around town with no centralized place to perform. The youth bands of the valley’s heyday are all now over 21.

Ivan Entertainment comes onboard at the Uptown Tavern with a full card of entertainment options from Wednesday, starting tomorrow and running through the week with different themes, different bands, even a comedy night. UT offers 48 beers on tap, including 12 Temecula brews, and exotic meats for consumption like Wild Boar, Venison, Elk, and Bison.
