Hezbollah funding scam?

  Posted by Picasa

Plot to undermine our Economy?

Or is this just a BIG rip-off in a small town?

A popular hotel, beer parlour , restaurant, nightclub and adjacent liquor sales outlet all suddenly now stand boarded up and closed here in Courtenay B.C.

I wondered about how this happened when all those businesses were doing a brisk business.

Speaking with someone connected with the city, I learned the following.

The whole hotel complex had been under new ownership for the last three or four months.

Suddenly, the new owners evaporated, left town, vanished. They left, I am told with a bundle , because none of the bills had been paid.

Politically incorrect part…. Brace yourself! Before everything closed , I noticed while attending the restaurant and club that the new owners were Arabian. No idea if they were Shia, Sunni, or Iranian or Palastinian of course, but the thought did occur that this was a fast way to raise great amounts of money for say, a fundamentalist cause and damage your enemy economy at the same time.

OK, you could suggest that I am overly suspicious, yet everything fits so well, there just seems to be a very real possibility that this could be happening in other small towns in Canada.

Grand larceny on a grand scale? Knowing the MSM, we the peons, would be the last to know about it.

Lawyers, notaries public, law enforcement and investigative professionals who read this could possibly find out if this pattern of rip-off has jumped recently in Canada. Those of you who have access to crime trends sites on the net could let us know if hotels and small complexes are being foreclosed due to fraud more frequently than average. This non-violent stuff never shows up in the press.

My city contact said the new complex owners had suggested they were in the Middle East precious gems business and the impression that they had great wealth was unmistakable.

I know, I know. All this is simply word of mouth and there is no documentation. This is in fact only a possible theory. However, I risk reprimand in mentioning it, because if this is happening in other places in Canada, there is no harm in being alerted. A conspiracy theory to be sure, but there is great logic behind it and what*s the harm in debunking it if this happens to just an isolated incident?

In fact, I hope someone can assure us with authority, that this is not a growing trend in Canada. = TG


Hezbollah Hizbullah Hezbullah fundraising

So you don*t think I am completely out of my tree....

In order to finance the training of these *volunteers,* as well as the seemingly endless barrage of rockets that have rained down on Israeli cities, Hezbollah has established an extensive fundraising infrastructure in the United States, as well as in Canada, South America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Supplementing the nearly $100 million Hezbollah reportedly receives from Iran, Hezbollah operatives in the U.S. have engaged in a litany of criminal activities, including credit card fraud, cigarette smuggling, counterfeiting, drug running, and organized retail theft, that provide millions to the Shiite terrorist organization.

Despite Al-Mabarrat-USA’s direct link to a Fadlallah-controlled organization, to date, the U.S. branch continues to operate unfettered.

In fact, the organization appears to have gained a level of credibility in the U.S. as the Detroit Free Press reported earlier this month that *many Muslims in the region have donated to Al-Mabarrat.*

Who killed the electric car?

  Posted by Picasa This is a link to more photos / info about the ** Who killed the electric car ** movie
Photo Gallery
More EVs
640 HP

Interesting.. what Johnny Maudlin, [who is not maudlin at all], said.

WE do enjoy chiming in on variations of the same theme.

I have bucked that and often tried to steer thinking to different directions.

Doing so has helped me polish skills of diplomacy and the slippery segway.

It is a dangerous game though. When revolt happens it can be vicious, often trending towards suggestions of unusual yoga positions.

In any case, I am proud of having pushed for topics like protection for whistle-blowers legislation... Bill C-11.

The present push is to suggest we should demand electric vehicles... proven viable with 1990 technology..

The GM EV1, loved by ALL 800 lessors and grabbed back in 1993 by GM and destroyed in a secure Arizona facility.

To suggest and warn that hybrids are really two cars in one, needlessly complex and a ploy to stave off pure electric cars by Big Auto and Big Oil.

With Evs, you just take a little generator along for charges in the out back. No need for a whole gas car in parallel.

To suggest there are many choices you can buy today, [I like the Toyota RAV4 EV], and several links are at:

The Muslim Brotherhood.. caution .. suspect

There is a very interesting July 1st post at Title: Moderate Muslim Group Found. OK, that is interesting….. But then this comment from [TD]

I'd just like to say "thank you" for articles like these... I come away from other sites and blogs thinking the future is bleak, then I come here and read your work, and I find that there's still hope.

I disagree with your assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood though... This document might interest you:

The Link gives you a 6 page PDF.

It ends with,
** The mistake for Muslims as well as for Westerners, would be to play their game and treat them as valid representatives of Islam, and political or social mediator.

Like all fascists, The Brotherhood exists only to satisfy the appetites and fantasies of its Leaders.**

I printed off the six pages for reference. This background could be useful to you especially.

It is not the most cheerful, but one should be in the know. TG

Better News Not via MSM

Theft without permission of DrD*s comment:

One must stoop to low grade theft to bring wider focus on the fact that educated minorities in countries like Iran and Afghanistan want to be free of fundamentalist oppression.

In this case the Ayatollah Khomeini*s own grandson!

===DrD says===
How unpopular is the United States in the Middle East--especially Iran?
Maybe not as unpopular as the MSM might lead us to believe.

It seems Hossein Khomeini,
the Ayatollah Khomeini's grandson
is calling upon the United States to invade Iran and free the country from the theocracy created by his grandfather. Google his name and follow the Daily Telegraph and BBC links among others.

OK, here, I*ll do it for you…

**This is a historic question in the strict sense, because we will not know the true answer for some considerable time. But that does not deprive us of some responsibility to make judgments in the meanwhile, and we have good reason to know that the region can't be left to fester as it is.
=========== [ Exactly! TG ] =======
On my own recent visit to Baghdad, Karbala, and Najaf, as well as to Basra and then Kurdistan, I would say that I saw persuasive evidence of the unleashing of real politics in Iraq and of the highly positive effect of same. Conversation with Khomeini suggests to me that in at least one other highly important neighboring country, the United States has also managed to get on the right side of history, as we used to say.
